Oh hey. Comedic SF/F fiction recommendations? I need something to make me laugh.

I have already read and enjoyed H2G2, Discworld, Myth Adventures, Ebeneezum, and Space Opera. So those are out. :)

"Excuse me, that's my familiar."

"You're quite mistaken. Triffle's been with me forever."

"Nice try, I know my Lunabean anywhere!"

The silvery vixen coughed lightly between them.

"I confess; I have been Familiar-ing for you both this whole time."

The wizards stared at her, mouths agape.

"There's a shortage of Familiars requiring us to multi-bond," she explained.

"What're you two doing with my Star-Nyte?"

"...A preposterous shortage."

So today I was working to random relaxing lofi music online and got linked through to "chill beats to quarantine to" executive produced by Will Smith, which is unexpected.

So far it's proving to be a pretty good thing so far, although some of the early tracks have a little bit more ... higher end noise stuff than I'm used to, like more higher twiddly noises? Which is a bit distracting.

I am frustratingly light on words. Anyway its mostly really nice.

You can find shards of broken gods anywhere, though old temples are usually emptied. I found this in the forest, under a spruce. It smells of turpentine, of shadow, of green.
You never know what aspect is in a shard, but...
Here, smell it.
Serenity.
There, that's enough. Better?

"I can do that. What's the starship called?"
"Earth."

Super Solidarity Strategy (adapt the hell out of this!) 

Yeah I super duper liked it when my unofficial (cis, male) assistant was invited to an online meeting instead of me for something I run. That made me feel super duper valued.

Luckily he name dropped me half a dozen times of "You should be involving X you know" so hopefully next time they'll actually talk to me.

(In return I name drop him to the bosses as "You really should be paying X more you know because he's working way above his pay grade")
