Special thanks go to ask-arceus for the mind-bendingly difficult recipe for New Gateau, off of which this was pretty heavily based (and before you ask, no, I haven’t tried to make it myself, my mother’s a fairly good baker and she balked at the mere description).
I’m glad I was able to finish this before… well, Tuesday. I pretty much spent the last two days doing nothing but write, but it was worth the effort and honestly it was a ton of fun to whip this one up. Ironically because I put so much effort into it, it ended up being a fair bit longer than a typical BtS chapter, haha!
also a cameo shows up for SOMEONE’S birthday :V
Choices, choices, my backlog continues to grow. Eesh.
