“The orange of the golden carp appeared at the edge of the pond. . . . We watched in silence at the beauty and grandeur of the great fish.

“The chaplain glanced at the bridge table that served as his desk and saw only the abominable orange-red, pear-shaped, plum tomato he had obtained that same morning from Colonel Cathcart, still lying on its side where he had forgotten it like an indestructible and incarnadine symbol of his own ineptitude.”

“Jenny’s admonition had the desired effect. Ned drew a deep breath and thrust his arm gingerly into the bag, his mouth puckered in distaste. The expression on his face flickered from queasy horror to confusion. From there, it
flew headlong into outright bafflement. Shaking his head, he pulled his fist from the bag and turned his hand palm up.
For a long moment, the two men stared at the offending lump. It was brightly colored. It was round. It was—
“An orange?” Lord Blakely rubbed his forehead. “Not quite what I expected.” He scribbled another notation.
“We live in enlightened times,” Jenny murmured.”

Stacey Ballis
“He and Volnay are two shades of the same color, her deep auburn a complement to his brighter, brasher cinnamon. He has light hazel eyes, squished-up floppy ears, and a large square head atop a body that is built like a little tank. He looks a lot like a miniature orange mastiff. His paws are enormous. Not to mention some other obvious parts of his anatomy. This isn't going to be some elegant little thirty-pound girl. This is a serious BOY dog. And he's going to be HUGE.
But he does have the advantage of being a puppy, and all puppies are adorable so that you don't kill them. He's curled up in Benji's arms, licking his ear, and I can't help it, he is pretty goddamned cute. I'm in real trouble.”
Stacey Ballis, Out to Lunch

Mm! Good stuff, good stuff! Wild-game curry, eh? That dish was way more of a masterpiece than I expected!"
Really! Who would've thought I'd get to try deep-fried duck cutlets! Their robust, gamey flavor paired exquisitely with the curry sauce!

"The strong smelliness of the meat was thoroughly ameliorated by the clever use of turmeric and orange.
In French cuisine, duck is traditionally garnished with an orange sauce."
"True! I added in bits of orange and grated peel into the roux too! It goes awesome with the special garam masala spice mix I put together!”
Yūto Tsukuda, 食戟のソーマ 7 [Shokugeki no Souma 7]

Jarod Kintz
“Time is fluid, like the wide sky that fades into bright orange in a sunset in The Ozarks. Every moment is meant to be sipped and savored like a slow mimosa.”
Jarod Kintz, The Lewis and Clark of The Ozarks

Jarod Kintz
“The sunset reminds me of me as a person. But not the current me. No, the one from before last night, when I was a more orange version of myself.”

Sitting by a cozy fireplace,
Watching the leaves fall to the ground,
Orange, yellow, red, purple, gold and brown.”
