Author’s Note: In the spirit of the recent Thanksgiving holiday, have some fun with comicsverse Martha and Jonathan! :)

Martha studied her recipe book. She made a few notations in pencil while she sipped her coffee. Jonathan came in from outside via the kitchen door, stamping his boots on the mat and slapping his hands together. A cold gust of air blew in and ruffled the blue-checked curtains at the window over the kitchen sink. )

Even though there was only one entry into BradyGirl_12’s 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge (it appears I made the right decision to make this the last one), I like to be a completist and so am creating this Master List for 2016. And, if you have any fanwork you'd like to add while the grace period is on, please do! We are going to be in the midst of a lot of holiday schmoop (which I love, BTW), but if you want something with, ahem, a little more bite to it, add your Halloween fanwork's header and link to the Main Page and I'll take care of the rest for you.

Enjoy the tale of the Bat-Family caught up in the weirdness of the Twilight Zone! :)

Week 12: New England Patriots 22, New York Jets 17 (9-2) (Sunday, November 27, 2016)

Another Jekyll-and-Hyde game! Mostly Hyde, heh heh.

In the first half, the Patriots were flat as pancakes. The O was sputtering, the D was dreadful, and the ST were shaky as Kicker Gostkowski missed yet another field goal. The Jets were putting up a fight despite their dismal record, but that's always the case with division games. Even when your divisional rival stinks, they usually fight like pit bulls. I'd guess that Tom was hampered by his leg injury from a few weeks before and missing two practices during the week.

In the second half, things started to perk up a little as the D managed to create two turnovers, something rare for them this season, and rookie wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell was stellar. Julian did his thing, but Bennett and Gronk were out with injuries. Dion Lewis and James White looked very good, and LeGarrette Blount continued his power running. And when the game was on the line in the final minutes, Brady drove the team down for the winning TD.

Tom won his 200th start (engineering his 50th game-winning drive and becoming the 5th quarterback in NFL history to pass for 60,000 yards), tying him with Peyton Manning. It was also the 500th franchise win for the Patriots, and the Pats are the first original American Football League franchise to reach that mark. The AFL merged with the NFL in 1970.

Imagine! Tom is responsible for 200 of those 500 wins for an organization that was founded in 1960!

Lots of holes in the team? Yep, but there are no great teams in the NFL this year. Lots of good teams with holes like the Pats, so they still have a good shot to go deep in the playoffs. The Pats right now are the No. 1 seed, but there are four games left to play.

The Dolphins and Bills won their games.

AFC EAST DIVISION

NE 9-2
Miami 7-4

NYJ 3-8


Next week, the Los Angeles Rams come to Foxboro.

Natasha’s eyes closed. She could still hear the men in the kitchen, arguing good-naturedly while washing pots and pans, loading plates into the dishwasher, and setting the dining room to rights. )

Week 11: New England Patriots 30, San Francisco 49ers 17 (8-2) Sunday, November 20, 2016)

A Jekyll-and-Hyde game! First half, the Pats were flat as pancakes. The second half, Tom ignited the offense. One amazing throw was completed while he was falling onto his back! He threw for 4 touchdowns, and LaGarrette Blount broke 100 yards in this game. Tom is now tied for 199 wins as a starting quarterback with Brett Favre. His next win ties him at 200 with Peyton Manning.

It was the first time Tom has played as a pro in San Francisco. His hometown is San Mateo is mere minutes away from the stadium. Julian Edelman is also from the same area. They both had family and friends in the stands, as well as so many Pats fans, it sounded like a home game! Even Coach Belichick commented that New England fans travel well. A grand homecoming! :)

The defense showed some improvement but needs a LOT of work. Right now they're the Achilles' heel of this team. Hopefully they can straighten things out.

The Bills and Dolphins won and the Jets were on their bye week.

NE 8-2

Author’s Notes: A gift to my f-list! It was my 10th LJ anniversary on October 24th, and it inspired this tale of unrepentant fluff. Enjoy! :)

Several minutes later (after more kissing and canoodling), the lovers pulled apart and Bruce put his key in the lock. He opened the door and suddenly put his hand out to stop Clark. )

Argh!!!

Week 10: Seattle Seahawks 31, New England Patriots 24 (7-2) (Sunday, November 13, 2016)

So after a bye week, this is what we get? Wasn't this week crappy enough?

Okay, the offense showed some sparks of brilliance but not enough to counter the awful defense. At least special teams (minus a Gostkowski glitch) was doing its job. LeGarrette Blount scored 3 touchdowns and did his job, but 2 turnovers and just general lackadaisical play did the O in. The D just let the Seahawks, not a great scoring team currently, march down the field at will. Why did we trade Jamie Collins again?

We had NO pass rush except for one Ninkovich sack. The D let up a TD after the O had just scored right before halftime! Killer.

A sorry performance. The coaching staff did a poor job this week. Tom Brady fumbled and threw his first INT, when the team was going for the record of no INTs for 9 straight games, set decades ago. *sigh* Two losses at home this year is unacceptable. Now you're tied with other teams at 7-2 instead of riding high at 8-1. Sometimes I just don't get this team.

Okay, Miami won, the Jets lost, and the Bills were on their bye week.

AFC EAST DIVISION

NE 7-2
Miami 5-4
BUFF 4-5 (Bye)
NYJ 3-7


Next week, on to San Francisco!

For your perusal:

At the same time, they have witnessed the rise of the Davos class, a hyper-connected network of banking and tech billionaires, elected leaders who are awfully cosy with those interests, and Hollywood celebrities who make the whole thing seem unbearably glamorous. Success is a party to which they were not invited, and they know in their hearts that this rising wealth and power is somehow directly connected to their growing debts and powerlessness.

http://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/40206-it-was-the-rise-of-the-davos-class-that-sealed-americas-fate

Nobody in this country knows how to talk about class. America is like a giant manor estate where the aristocrats don't know they're aristocrats and the peasants imagine themselves undiscovered millionaires. And America's cultural elite, trained for so long to think in terms of artificial distinctions like Republicans and Democrats instead of more natural divisions like haves and have-nots, refused until it was too late to grasp the meaning of the rage-storm headed over the wall.

Damn those Cubbies! When they won the World Series this year, they tilted the Earth off its axis! Now we have Trump in the White House. Thanks, Chicago.

Seriously, I was as bummed as anyone among my fannish friends to see what happened. I could see the trend Election Night: Hillary kept losing key battleground states and her Electoral College numbers were not catching up to the Evil Emperor's. I went to bed long before midnight, reasoning that if a miracle happened and she won, a great way to wake up the next day, but I wasn't in the mood for staying up 'til the wee hours to watch an upset.

Golden September turned to yellow-orange-and-scarlet October as the days and nights grew cool and there was frost on the pumpkins, at least in the fields outside the city. The World’s Fair would close before November with the promise of re-opening in the spring, its popularity encouraging a second season. )
