Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 27 | Teagan’s Books


I’m a great fan of Teagan Geneviene’s writing. Her serials are enchanting and by the time the latest chapter of the current serial wings its way into my inbox on a Saturday, I’m champing at the bit to see what’s going to happen!

Each week, her readers supply her with three things which she then weaves into her story. In this Saturday’s episode, Teagan used my suggestions —  a Silver Locket, Green Chartreuse and Salmon Koulibiac.

I’m afraid I gave in to the dramatic again.  I might as well tell you that there is another cliffhanger ahead.  But you’re forewarned, so try not to scream “Akkk!” about my theatrics when you get there.

The multi-talented Sarah Vernon at “Rogues & Vagabonds” sent the three things that fueled the steam locomotive to the Victorian Era for this chapter.  Sarah’s blogs are visual treats.  “Rogues & Vagabonds” is for anyone with a passion for theatre.  The feeling I get when I visit there puts me in mind of the era of this serial.

Cornelis Drebbel wore a grave expression as Absinthe popped off to confront the Purple Fairy — also known as the one-eyed one horned flying purple people eater.  Our ape host and his housekeeper continued to murmur worriedly about the safety of the tiny Green Fairy.

I looked at the Dutchman.  His mouth twitched.  Then he smirked.  As I drew a breath to ask him what the devil he was thinking, Cornelis burst out laughing.  What preposterous behavior!  I was speechless, my question utterly forgotten.

Viola clutched a silver locket suspended from a chain around her neck.  A tear from her good eye trickled down her cheek.  She looked like she might swoon again.  Cal Hicks patted her shoulder, trying to comfort the violet…

    1. It’s a wonderful dish. The recipe Teagan gives is not quite the same as mine, not that I can find it among my belongings (it still looks as if we’ve only just had delivery of our stuff!) but it’s definitely worth making, even if you cheat with the puff/filo pastry.
