Update on my life - don't take me seriously  

Reading glasses love - spoilerish for "Murder at 1600"

So, I watched "Murder at 1600" on Saturday. Loved Alvin Jordan (Alan Alda) with the reading glasses. My muse hooked up with some post-M*A*S*H bunnies...
Was a bit miffed about him being the bad boy, but at least he died. My bad boy radar is broken it seems, but I did say that he wouldn't survive when I found out that he's the baddie.

That pose is so Hawkeye...

I started to write a very post-series story after watching this. I'm just not sure whether Mulcahy should still be alive or not... how do you feel about Hawkeye having adopted a child post-Korea?

What M*A*S*H is all about...
I guess when Hawkeye mentions that they invented the banana daiquiri it gets canon. Hawkeye is half a Time Lord.
Ten is his father and Jack the "mommy". Jack met Daniel Pierce, who was a medic, during WWI (planetkiller had that idea) and Pierce found out about Jack's regenerativ abilities.
Jack spent a little time with Ten 1920-1922 and ended up pregnant. He turned to his old friend Daniel for help and in the end the Pierces "adopted" the little boy (that was my idea again).
Now, how do we break the news to Hawkeye?

And are priests allowed to look that hot?

Look at that bizeps...
Now the muse is obsessed with him... even more.

Who needs food...

... when you can have coffee?
Honestly, when I don't have to go to school I can live on coffee... and when I don't have to go to the gym. Which means I'll have to start eating again, because I have to work out every second day and go jogging every day.
But too much coffee makes me feel strange... I don't know whether my hands are trembling slightly or my head is and makes it look like my hands are...
I guess it just feels like I'm trembling...

Yay! I get credit for my assistance in cracky theories! And I still love the Mulcahy pic. You totally need to write Communion almost porn. *nods emphatically* (Shows you how Heroes obsessed I am; I typed "empathically" twice.)

I would write that if you could give me a few more points of how to write that? Since I'm just a puny faithless (ask the Vatican) I don't know nothing about the Catholic Communion...

Silly Prot. Okay, I'll lead you by the hand. :p

Communion is just taking the host and precious blood. The whole ceremony is called the Eucharist which means "thanks giving."

First, the priest blesses bread (normally unleavened wafers) and the wine. I don't think there's a specific thing they say, but our priest says, "This is My Body. Eat and rejoice in it. This is My Precious Blood. Drink and rejoice in it." (That's an approximation.) Then, transubstaniation occurs. Basically, the wafers actually become the Body of Christ, called the host, and the wine becomes the Blood of Christ, called the Precious Blood.

Next, the priest and two novices (the Roman Catholics may call them acolytes, I'm not sure) come down and stand at the front of the church. One holds the tray of host and the other the chalice of Precious Blood. The whole front left pew rises to their feet and come to the front where they genuflect and get down on their knees.

The priest stands in front of each one and takes a wafer from the tray. He says "The body of Christ" and places the wafer on the tongue of the communicant. They eat it and the priest takes the chalice from the other noviceHe says "The blood of Christ" and the communicant drinks it. After the whole row is done, the front row on the right goes. Then the second row on the left and so on. (Catholics sit at the front of the church not because they love G-d but so as not to get so much backwash.)

A person can receive just the host or just the Precious Blood if they wish and all the leftovers and eaten by a priest. Officially, Communion should be given by a Bishop with the priest holding the wafers and a deacon dealing with the chalice, but Bishops have given blanket permission for certain states (or countries) to do it all with a priest.

Is that at all understandable? Don't ask why the wafers and wine become part of Jesus, nobody knows. And I'm assuming Mulcahy is a Roman Catholic, They do it a bit differently then we do, but I've tried to get as close to it as I remember.

Well... and I always thought that with Catholics only Priests may drink the wine apart from occasions like First Communion or marriage... O__o Or precious blood in that case.

The only difference to Lutherans is that we usually don't kneel. Even the words seem to match...
(1Co 12,24: "While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take and eat; this is my body. Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.")

And we do believe that the host and the wine become the body and blood of Christ when eaten. The remainder of the hosts is put away and the wine is either drunken by the reverend or spilled on sacred ground (my mum used to be a sacristan and "watered" a rosebush on the graveyard next to the church with the left-over wine... XD).

So... uhm... Hawkeye somehow decides to go to service on sundry and... do Catholics have a holy communion every Sunday or just on special occasion? (We could take that over to YIM, if you want... xD)

If I may pipe in here... I'm a Roman Catholic and still attend mass from time to time. The eucharist happens a little differently than described:

The first paragraph was entirely correct. However, the priest doesn't give the wine to the communicants, but he and his helpers (not the acolytes/altar boys or altar girls, they're too young) drink from the chalice. We only ever got to drink the wine at the oecumenic masses... but we have a new reverend now who obeys Rome and doesn't allow oecumenic communion like our last one did. So, no wine for us anymore. *sniffle* ;)

Also, we don't kneel and don't get the host laid on out tongue. We form a kind of platter with our hands (left hand on top). The priest just puts the host in our hand and we pick it up with our right hand, answer "Amen" when he tells us "The body of Christ" (except for me, because Amen means basically "that's how it is" - but I can't believe that, but that's neither here nor there). However, I think that's a rather new process, because some older people still kneel down or just open their mouths - maybe it was changed in the Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican (1962-1965), so that'd mean in the Korean War people would still have knelt.

And we don't form a row, but come forward one by one (that's why the priest has several helpers if the fold is bigger) in a steady procession - almost looks military, very disciplined and all that. :)

Hope I could help you out.

Yay! Thanks for helping!
I just knew that Roman Catholics usually don't get wine. As far as I remember you get it on special occasion, though, right (First Communion, getting married...? I had Roman Catholic friends as a child but I don't really remember everything...)?Does the priest drink once or for every communicant?
Do you get blessed one by one or the whole fold or... not at all?

I got so many questions XD

Oh yes. And the boxing... he should wear that shirt more often. How should we admire his built if he runs around in his jacket or sweater... :D

Love the story. lol. I would totally read it if it was a complete fic. I've always said how similar Ten and Hawkeye are, really. It's scary sometimes. lol.

When I have time I'm going to do a picspam of the two and compare them once and for all. :-)

I can’t wait for the picspam! :D
I try to write the whole story to that, but right now my muse made me write some strange religious non-religious horse metaphor UST...

And your meme, of course... :D
