Eostre

Eostre"Where did you find these? They're gorgeous." Rachel admired one of the many foil-wrapped, chocolate Cthulhus that Dawn preparing to deliver to Watcher headquarters.

"Someone down at Camden Markets was selling them and I couldn't resist. I haven't been able to bring myself to buy chocolate rabbits since Anya died."

Rachel passed Dawn a chocolate animal that looked like an elongated rabbit with a long tail. "What do you make of this?"

"Weird. What is it?"

"The barman at our local ordered a box and said it was a Bilby. I think the Australians are having a lend of us."

Your icon bunny might be, but I'd argue the point on rabbits.

They're very cute. Some of the manufacturers donate part of the proceeds to the preservation of their little, furry counterparts too.

Huh, it looks sort of like a fox crossed with an anteater. Cute! And all I had were kitty-shaped chocolates. ;)

Say, Wolf, didn't hear back from you, so I'm just checking in to see if you got your beta back? I sent it back within a half hour, but I know there's always the possibility of it having bounced. From some reason, my messages have an annoying tendency to do that... grrr.

They're little bandicoot guys. Very cute.

Yes, I did get your rapidly returned beta, I've just been horribly slack (and watching Doctor Who). Thanks muchly, it will be up tonight.

Doctor Who is a more than worthy excuse for making me worry. ;)

'Having a lend of us'? What's that translate to in American English?

They make chocolate Cthulhus? That's even better than Santa Cthulu plushies, or Hello Cthulhu stickers. I want one!

Having a lend of

Making a joke at your expense.

I couldn't find chocolate Cthulhus, but I'd be surprised if someone wasn't making them.

Aw, she couldn't eat chocolate bunnies after Anya. I like that you put that in there. Clever, as always, my dear.

I hate when you done realise you're logged out until your comments go wiggy, but it sounded like you.

I couldn't resist the Anya/bunny thing.

Ah, those crazy Aussies. This story actually made me feel kind of sad, what with the Anya reference and all.

I had to use the Anya reference, it seemed a shame not to remember her.

Absolutely! And it fit right in with the story as a whole.
