"This isn't a vacation!" Rodney shouted. "This is about declassifying research that's going to change the course of physics!" Content notes:
A favourite of mine! The urge to make a podfic suddenly came upon me, unfortunately when I hadn't completely gotten over a cold so my voice is even more nasal than usual. Sorry about that, but I didn't have the energy to re-record so I hope you can still enjoy it. Also apologies for the very bad singing :) Thanks to like_cheap_wine for permission to use their art as a podfic cover, and to Speranza for blanket permission to transform works. Length:

Dear Prime Time Player on DW
Gather round, everybody. This week we're going egg-free. Yee haw.
To fill this prompt, you can:
- Pop into the comments of this post and talk about how you replace eggs in a recipe, review commercial egg-replacers, or share a link to an egg-free recipe and what you like about it.
- Write up a favorite egg-free recipe—or recipe with an egg-free option—and post it to the comm.
- Try someone's egg-free recipe and reply to their post (or comment) with any substitutions or changes you made and how it turned out.
If you like deadlines, you have one week to fill this prompt!
If you don't like deadlines, there's no deadline, and you can participate whenever you want.
As always, these prompts are just in case you need a little inspiration. During this egg-free time, you can continue to post to the comm even if it isn't related to the prompt.
The preference seems to be for early summer! Thanks to everyone who replied. Below is a schedule I've drawn up for 2019.
All deadlines are at 10PM MST.
Nominations: June 1 - June 10
Sign Ups: June 12 - June 20
Assignments out by: June 24
Assignments due: August 10
Collection revealed: August 17
Creators revealed: August 24
Feedback is welcome!
The tag set is almost done. I just have a few more nominations that require some clarification/verification:
Was Dinah Lance in Batgirl (Comics)?
Were Liam Riley or Lucy Becker in Highlander: The Series or just the spinoff Highlander: The Raven?
Is Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke a standalone novel or part of a series that includes The Ladies of Grace Adieu?
Was Kon-El | Conner Kent in Red Robin (Comics)?
Who was Roman Era Male Beverley Brook for Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch?
Was Ratchet in Transformers: Shattered Glass?
Now is the time to check for any embarrasing tagging-related misclicks, maybe do a read for typos, and for the very ambitious, I'm sure there's still time to bash out a quick treat. Good luck, and see you at reveals!

I made an apple crisp last night and it was the best tasting apple crisp I’ve made in a while. (Pip went back for seconds, which means we ended up eating half of the thing!) The apples were perfectly done (not too hard, not mushy) and the crisp was a perfect texture (aka, not hard enough to break your teeth), so I’ve decided to share the recipe.
I got this recipe from my mother, who got it from her mother, but I don’t know where it came from before that. It could’ve come from my great-grandmother or Betty Crocker.( Ingredients: )( Steps )( Making it GF )
I closed the tag set this morning and now that I'm home, I'm working through approving the rest of the fandoms and relationship tags the next couple of days.
If anyone sees any relationship tags that shouldn't be in a particular fandom (example: crossover pairings or a character that doesn't exist in said fandom) or any other mistakes in the tag set, please let me know so I can correct it.
Sign ups will begin April 19th to April 30th.

Tone consistency, making sure it's not boring, general flow, syntax, anything! Some Scot-picking would be great. Notes:
I've previously written a one-shot for this pairing
but this new one is much longer and more sombre in tone. A couple of original characters, but hopefully not too obtrusive.
Parchment paper is cellulose-based paper (or "paper") that has been treated to make it non-stick, resistant to grease and moisture, and appropriate for oven use. It's sold in rolls, sheets, bags, pre-cut rounds, and even shaped inserts for loaf pans. It also comes in muffin cup form.
These days I never make muffins without using PaperChef's parchment paper baking cups
. They're completely non-stick so you don't lose any muffin when you pull the wrapper off. Great for gluten-free baking and baked goods that are lower in fat. They're even kosher for Passover. They're also more expensive than regular muffin papers, but I like to think you make up for it by not losing half your muffin when you pull the paper off and then having to gnaw at the becrumbed muffin wrapper like a stray dog.
These cups will expand to fit your muffin tins, which is a wonderful bonus, but it also means they don't hold their shape if left to their own devices. If you set one out on the counter, it'll just slowly unfold until it's a flat circle. The cups come in a square box with a cardboard ring inside to keep them round. One of the boxes I bought didn't have the ring and the cups were definitely squarish when I took them out. Now I open every box after I buy it just to make sure it has the ring, and if it doesn't, I shove the cups into a box that does. Be aware that the sizes are a bit confusing. I buy the large, which isn't large at all, just a normal muffin size.
If you can't find the PaperChef brand where you are, just search for parchment paper baking cups. Or, if you have more patience than I do, you can make your own tulip muffin cups out of parchment paper
If you've never used parchment paper at all, I highly recommend it. It's an extra expense, and it does create some waste, but the benefits outweigh the negatives for me. It prevents cakes, cookies, and quick breads from sticking to the pan, and you can often use the paper as a sling to lift your loaf or cake right up on out of there. It also makes clean up way easier. Put it under roasted veggies or whole yams—those sugar-drooling monsters. Put it under meatloaf or lentil loaf. Put it under literally anything: cornbread, brownies, buns, sweet rolls, nuts, chips, granola. It doesn't even have to be going into the oven. Put it under raw protein bars or fudge.
You can cook without parchment paper—I did for many years—but working in the kitchen is so much easier with it.
Today is the last day before nominations close. The tag set is here
and this is the link
explaining how to nominate.
I'm running behind tonight, so I'll leave the tag set open until it's 11:59pm in Pacific Timezone, if not closing it in the morning if I don't get back in time.

Lord Alexander Pyne-ffoulkes is the younger son of the Duke of Ilvar, with a bitter grudge against his wealthy father. The Duke intends to give his Duchess a priceless diamond parure on their wedding anniversary—so Alec hires a pair of jewel thieves to steal it.
The Duke's remote castle is a difficult target, and Alec needs a way to get the thieves in. Soldier-turned-criminal Jerry Crozier has the answer: he'll pose as a Society gentleman and become Alec's new best friend.
But Jerry is a dangerous man: controlling, remote, and devastating. He effortlessly teases out the lonely young nobleman’s most secret desires, and soon he’s got Alec in his bed—and the palm of his hand.
Or maybe not. Because as the plot thickens, betrayals, secrets, new loves, and old evils come to light. Now the jewel thief and the aristocrat must keep up the pretence, find their way through a maze of privilege and deceit, and confront the truth of what's between them...all without getting caught.
Alec Pyne is the cast-off son of a duke, who hires a pair of jewel thieves to rob his father in revenge. Cue constant threats of betrayal, unexpected feelings, and HEISTS. Oh, and as you may have noticed when I squeaked about this before
, I really liked it. It has possibly
