I'm not exaggerating one bit when I say that I think that half the fandom threw a party when word got around that, after a long absence from writing BBT fic, cereal had posted something new. Like many in the fandom, her fic was some of the first I ever read and I'll always have an incredibly special place in my heart for What Happens, Stays.
Having said all that, does her new fic live up to all the anticipation and hype? In a word, YES. This story is hilarious, sweet, sexy and features Spin the Bottle and bonus Howard/Raj. What's not to love?
The first spin goes 100% the best way it could've gone:
Howard spins and it lands on Raj.
The backpedaling, oh god, the backpedaling. Raj is just making angry, muted noises (no booze at a teenage sleepover), but Howard -- Howard is in rare form.
He calmly checks his strike count with Sheldon, but he's at two and the reset course now requires a physical education credit that no one's anxious to learn about.
Then he pretends his phone is ringing.
Sheldon tells him, all disapproving, that, despite Apple's advances in cellular phone technology, no company has yet found a way to allow for a phone to still function following both a blast from liquid nitrogen and a forceful shattering.
I'm so happy that cereal is back and in fine form. Stick around for a while, would you?
