Well, it's St Pat's Day and before I head out to celebrate here's a little offering - a St Patrick's Day drabble.

I'm posting this one in the memory of Ran and Brian.

May their creator's soul rest in peace, sweetened by gratitude for all she gave us, and untainted by any of the bitterness her death has left behind.

Brian rarely, if ever, wears green except in the depths of his eyes and occasionally, though he’d deny it with his last breath, his emotions. He doesn’t drink Guinness, or even Irish whiskey. He’d mock mercilessly the notion that he’s influenced by any “cultural characteristics”.

But Justin’s read the old tales of Cúchulainn and of the Fianna, and has found in them traits, both good and ill, with which he’s very familiar.

So Justin believes that in his heavy drinking, his pride, his fierce loyalty, his creativity, his passion and his sheer bloody-minded pigheadedness, Brian Kinney personifies his Irish heritage.

Happy St Pat's Day, everyone.

I'm half and half - and all Celt. My father's people were Irish, my mother's were Scottish.

Thank you. Yes. I suspect he is. Especially about the stubborn bit *g*

I'm sure they would have loved this just as much as I did. Thank you for not just being a talented writer, but also a pretty amazing person. :)

Thanks, Chris. Yes. I guess we are. The sense of loss I think will last a long time.

What a fitting tribute.

I just found out that my Irish-American paternal grandfather, who died years before I was born, was born on St. Patrick's Day. That was a fun discovery.

That is indeed a fun discovery.

I'm a third generation Aussie - but half my forebears came from Ireland and the other half from Scotland.

I find myself drawn to both countries, and both cultures.
