    Clifford the Big Red Deadly Scorpion

    "The Story of a Scorpion Who Was the Son of Adam" is what we're reading this week, with periodic interruptions of Very Good Ideas that the right people on Twitter needed to know about immediately. The story itself is the result of someone really crunching to make a deadline.

    Bony Begins

    Hans Christian Andersen's "Garden of Paradise" is another one of those stories that fundamentally changes our overly tangled web of fairy tale interconnectedness. Hans with the heat again: lots of Immortal Bony/Project Birdfall meat for everyone!

    Original Bird Sin

    "The Three Languages" is a Grimm story that needs a lot of fixing up. Sure there's a super weird Pope ceremony at the end, but what happened to the dogs and frogs? It's a story that demands some grasping at straws to fill in the gaps.

    Double Married Baby Husband

    "A Tale of Two Brothers" just has too much going on, and not enough of it is focused on the children's card game at the center of the conflict. There's a lot that needs to be cut away from this story, and that leaves a lot of room for other, better stuff to fill it back up.
