Rule 34: If it exists, there is porn of it

 Somewhere on ao3 is fanfic for Kipling's poem Tomlinson, in the same metre and rhyming scheme, which involves Satan/ St. Peter slash.

Sorry, didn't save the link. Found it while googling the poem in hopes of learning what the significance of Berkeley Square was. It seems that maybe Kipling was having a go at the arties of his time, but given how upscale the place has always been (Clive of India cut his throat there; Walpole and William Pitt the Younger and William Waldorf Astor lived there) it hardly sounds like a hotbed of conformist middle-class thinking.

Otherwise- I vaguely recall that when I read LotR in '02 my Ballantine copy of the middle volume gave up the ghost and I had to buy a new one. But I was sure I had vol. 3 intact. Only it's vanished as well, and of the original set only vol. 1 remains. I mean yes I have a duplicate RotK, but the typeface is tiny, and anyway I want my colourful covers back.

And of course, now that libraries have reopened for curbside pickup, two of my holds have come in. Am afraid to put RotK on hold while I read them in case I lose the momentum, but maybe I have to. Which of course is why I started a Kinsey Millhone mystery tonight.
