Africander Fic: Facing the Heart In Darkness; Part 8/?

The previous part was definitely an exercise in "live and learn." I had always assumed that "East Cupcake" as a slang term for "the middle of nowhere" was a very common phrase. Hell, I grew up with it and everyone I knew used it, so I just thought it was one of those widespread things.

WRRRROOOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGG!

Turns out that it just might be a New England-ism, or maybe even a Boston-ism. There were people in the U.S. who had never heard it until BtVS and thought it was a made-up term from the mind of Joss Whedon.

Hunh. You learn something new every day.

Part 7.

As we were called to board the bush taxi, my troubled mind kept nibbling at ever-darker speculations about the nature of Mr. Harris’s hold over his people.

 

Trouble will come in its own time, it always does...Collapse )
