Don’t look at the future. We drew something awful on it.

Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later.Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    I think it’s possible to square what Hannibal does to Bella if we say that it’s out of his regard for Jack. The coin flip is a bit of whimsy, but it also illustrates him choosing which friendship to honor in this particular case; let one friend go out on her terms, or save another friend from something he doesn’t wish to come to pass.

    For those who really want to be dishy

    Okay, I think<.i> I got what this meant in context – kind of gossipy, possibly related to “dishing the dirt”? It’s not a meaning I’ve seen before, though, and it’s a new one on Wictionary as well.

    In the UK – and on Wictionary – it’s a rather old-fashioned term for an attractive man (Susan almost certainly considered her favourite pop stars dishy, Jo probably did, Ace quite definitely didn’t), so my brain kind of skipped a track there.

      I used to be quite dishy some decades ago. Or at least so I was told.

    I’m a little surprised that you didn’t draw a parallel, either here or in the ‘World Enough and Time’ review, between Pimm’s “I can’t make the pain go away, but I can make it so it doesn’t matter” and the Mondassian surgeon’s “This won’t stop you feeling pain, but it will stop you caring about it.”
