    Summary

    “I’ve heard that back in the day, when they sent in people to rake the blood out of the sand, they had to pick shreds of girl-meat out from between the tigers’ teeth. But those,” she said, pitching her voice low and watching everyone lean in, “were loser bitches, and we’re not like them. And since they banned menagerie fights, we’re the only beasts on the floor. I want us cleaning our own teeth when this is all over.”

    All those faces turned in her direction, radiating loyalty and bloodthirst. Addy, afterwards, stroking along the white flash of Beth’s smile, Beth lightly catching the pad of Addy’s thumb between her teeth.

    Summary

    Dear Reader,
    Before you click back on this fic faster than a link to a Rick Astley song, you should probably know why. This fic describes the Baudelaire children's precarious tenure at the Old Vaudeville Family Destination, now better known as Muppet Theater. I can think of no reason to read a fic dealing with such unpleasant matters as electrical rewiring, an overflowing music catalog, entirely too many occurrences of a certain three-letter initialism (and references to an organization using said initialism), and the use of a cannon. I have sworn to research this story, and to document it as best I can; you, who have made no such oath, may find more pleasant uses of your time, such as going to the dentist or watching paint dry.
    With all due respect,
    Lemony Snicket

    On the run from the law and Count Olaf, the Baudelaires join the crew of The Muppet Show. It turns out better than expected.

    Summary

    “I’m very pleased to see you still play so beautifully, Miss Bridgerton.”

    In her surprise, Francesca’s light fingers went leaden, coming down on the keyboard in a discordant clash and rather disproving her spectator's claim. She winced and looked up, squinting to make out who was lurking at the threshold.

    O Aphrodite, of the many coloured throne,
    Aphrodite of the sparrows, smile-loving, sea-born
    Aphrodite, now, again, I beg you:
    Bring her me.
