Just finished watching part 1 of Hogfather and have to say I am very impressed. They have the characterizations for Susan and Teatime right on - and there are also little details make me squee in joy, such as having Nigel Planer as Mr Sideney (and Nigel Robinson involved at all).

Eagerly awaiting part 2 tomorrow, and have marked as a definite DVD purchase :>

Current Music: Try to Wish - Oh My Goddess
Tags:

Title: Changes
Author: purple_alicorn
Rating: FR13
Warnings: none
Word Count: 308
Author's Notes: I used the term kami deliberately, as I wanted to distinguish the Norns (western type goddesses) from the Japanese gods. Inspired by a Terry Pratchett quote from Witches Abroad that “Most witches don't believe in gods. They know that the gods exist, of course. They even deal with them occasionally. But they don't believe in them. They know them too well. It would be like believing in the postman.”

Author's Notes I have to admit, I only know about these from reading the odd comic/manga or two, so I apologize in advance for any mistakes. This came about from the question “Why is Kaito afraid of fish?” and an image I remembered of Delirium surrounded by them (and yes, her manner of speaking is capitalized strangely on purpose) .
