When Gluten Attacks!

Queen Shulamit is gluten-intolerant, which is why she fell in love with the palace cook. Never fear, Queenling — Aviva will save you from the evil bread-monster! (Characters are from the queer YA fantasy novel The Second Mango and were drawn here by Cillaid.)


If you switch the gender presentations this could pretty much be a scene from my marriage. I remember this one time we were at a fancy restaurant and after allllll the drama with having the chef prepare as safe a dish as possible for my spouse, the waiter brought hir sorbet for dessert that had a big ol’ wafer stuck in the top. I plucked it out as if it were a ticking bomb, and the waiter’s response? “Get your own!”
