It's amusing to read an Avengers fic set in Palanga. I keep thinking "But I've _been_ to Palanga!", and also "But -11.1 degrees Celsius isn't bone-chilling! Cold, yeah, but not _that_ cold!"

... but the Russian language in Avengers fic is mostly tiresome. Though I get that Natasha's peculiar patronymic is comic book canon.

This makes me think of my father, who's Czech, and his snarking at various Western attempts at getting through Eastern European names (especially when watching tennis). And people wonder why I have a fascination with name construction ... XD

I guess bone-chilling depends on what you're used to and how you're dressed for it? (Now I'm curious -- what would you call bone-chillingly cold?)
