Part I
Part II

cadhla does this Buffyverse game, which is the fictional TV show Martin's Passage. Occasionally, fic falls out. This is some truly fine stuff.

I was grousing to myself earlier this evening that I know who my favorite pro writer is (it was a toss-up between lmbujold and outofambit for the longest time, but since I wound up using Dairine's Admonition to the Lone Power against a rather creepy truth-is-stranger-than-fiction real-life incident and having it work, outofambit wins) but I hadn't the foggiest who my favorite fan writer is. cadhla just solved that dilemma with this lovely piece. She's held the reigning position as Favorite Humor Columnist for some years now.

Any challengers?
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
