[Filtered to friends of Kallian and Alistair (feel free to assume)]

Alistair and I have some extremely surprising and extremely happy news. Ordinarily I'd want to tell everyone in person, but you know what a gossip mill this place is, and I don't want any of you finding out somewhere other than from us.

Alistair and I are going to have a baby. Late this summer, Christine thinks. As any of you who have any experience with Wardens know, the odds of this happening are very slim, so we're feeling like we just won a hundred sovereigns on a bluff.

And apparently drinking alcohol is not good for pregnant women, so I am now taking bids on my alcohol rations.

Hello, Mount Weather! Two things:

I'm happy to announce that auditions for Little Shop of Horrors are coming up at the end of the month! Mark your calendars for February 25th, where we'll be holding open auditions in the gym after dinner hours.

If you're nervous about your audition, you could see Sir Galavant, who's generously providing singing lessons.

Second, Felix and I have put together welcome packets for all new arrivals to Mount Weather, which includes a pamphlet about all of the fun things to do here if we're not under attack. Also included in the packet are two bars of my handmade soap, three packets of dandelion herb tea, and a customised painted mug courtesy of our own Felix Dawkins (which, yes, we took from the kitchens, but they will be used).

I delivered the packets to medical last week, so all new arrivals should have received one upon waking up. If you didn't, please swing by medical or see me in Civilian Services to receive one!

Oh, holy Christmas cakes. All of you need to come by Childcare immediately because I just got some serious eye candy.

Wow, there are a lot of you. Okay!

This is your official invitation to join me and the kids in my apartment tomorrow night for family game night after dinner. We held one recently to get to know everyone, and you know what? There are more of you. We got Sarah and Kira back, and Tali, your friend Garrus is here now, and you know what? That's just great. We're making room for more family.

Please come! Party games include charades, twenty questions, Pictionary, and a whole host of improv games that actors do. Alcohol is permitted but not necessarily encouraged. I am not avoiding Valentine's Day

Eponine, I fear we may have to save your brother from the charts.

Apollo, we may perhaps need to teach Gavroche some other way. Your lectures may be punishment more than lessons at this point.

Since it has recently been a question, I thought it pertinent to make an announcement:

The Rose, our local Mount Weather tavern, is not for children. That said, we judge whether you're a child or not based more or less on how you look and how you behave. If you show up being fifteen and not looking eleven and ask politely for a drink and don't cause any trouble, I don't particularly care.

Regardless of your age, we will boot you out if you can't behave yourself - and please, please do not get any notion that because I'm small or because I'm an elf I'm not capable of ousting you - but as long as you appear to know how to conduct yourself, you'll be fine. And if you have questions on how to conduct yourself, feel free to ask. I've got a good barkeep's love of giving advice.

Doctor Parry, I thank you again for your help with my hand.

OH come on!

Gambit shows up. Actual Gambit. Remy Le actual cajun god of hotness Beau

And he looks like Damon.

Life is cruel. I am defeated.

If the above makes no sense to you, just know that it is a BAD THING. And hug me.

Quiet contemplation has been the order of the day. And I suppose I never wrote to you why. When we received our messages in the week past, I had been reminded of my very own Evans. So here, because I do find ergotherapy to be stimulating - and writing a grounding principle - let me describe him to you.

And if you find yourself inclined to read, my hat's quite off to you.

Two whole days
My hands are still sh

I do not know about anyone else. But, I believe a drink is needed after that.

If people could please keep their magic under control, and not deprive me of alcohol for any amount of time. That would be greatly appreciated.

Jan. 27th, 2016


If anyone is missing days or would like specifics on what you were up to, apparently Alfred and I kept rather detailed records of everything.

Who do we have to thank for being back? And who do I owe apologies to, for that matter.

Do us both a favour and go back to being you and not some strange example of Father. It doesn't suit you.

Jolras m'a dit que nous sommes dans une montagne. Et, qu'il y avait un dragon.

Et, que je devrais dire bonjour. Alors, bonjour. Je suis R.

Il a dit qu'il n'a pas combattu le dragon. Mais, je l'ai retiré la lutte contre toute façon.

[Translation added IC by Enjolras]Enjolras told me we're in a mountain. And, that there was a dragon.

And, that I should say hello. So, hello. I am R.

He said he didn't fight the dragon. But, I drew him fighting it anyway.

network; elena fisher (003)

Attention music, art and lit nerds! Are you a well of seemingly useless trivia? Are you a well of wonderful trivia? Did you annoy all your friends with your obsession of any particular genre of music, art or literature? Then Elena Drake wants you to pour your heart out on camera so I can shamelessly use your words and passion to make one or two half hour long episodes a week about the topic of your obsession.

Specifically, I'm shining a spotlight on the things we have available to us here. We have a limited range of the available music and other media (and thank you to everyone who was dropped into this world with their iTunes libraries and iPods who graciously donated their stuff to the radio station), and I'm putting a show together that will educate people about what we do have and let fans celebrate it and talk about their experiences at home. Consider it half informational, half nostalgic in a History Channel format.

The warehouses here are full of things for archival purposes, so I'm specifically looking for artists and art students to talk about the visual art in the vaults, music nerds to talk about the different artists and genres that we've been broadcasting over the radio, and literature buffs who can talk about the classics in our library. Once I know who we have and what you're all interested in, I'll draw up some episode summaries and start scheduling when I can film whom. I'm also interested in doing episodes on everyone's reality-specific holidays and customs if you're willing to talk to me about that.

The working title for this is "Life in a Can". It'll be better when it actually airs. Maybe. Production on this series isn't going to be an official job, but if anyone has experience in television and media production and is willing to donate their time, I could use an extra camera person, as well as a couple of people to help me research and edit each episode. We're going to have a bit of a low budget feel, since the only cameras we have access to are my hand-held from home and my iPhone, but I can give anyone who came with their laptop a copy of the video editing software I have on mine. (In fact, I'm uploading that to the servers tonight, so that anyone with a compatible device can grab it and edit anything they feel like making.) The goal is to do two shows a week: one on media history and analysis, one on a custom or a holiday.

Still dying?

Chatty to Lexi

Snow White said that blood was getting low for vampires. How low?


I have an opinion on the issue with the dragon but there are too many already. Whatever action is taken will be on those who take it. Either way.

I mostly wish to know, has anyone else seen things in the water again. For...a longer time. As moving pictures.


Marius. He lives.

He surrvived. He was back at the Musain.

He was alive. He alone.


I have two big announcements:

One: Teamwork, ingenuity, magic, and dedication to the pursuit of quality drunkenness has granted us a glorious gift: the queen of all liquors, the water of life...whiskey. With a little help from Messeres Nico Minoru and John Constantine and Serah Kili the smith, we've been able to age it in magical barrels and have produced something that is, I dare say, quite drinkable.

Two: I realized that a name for the tavern's actually been staring me in the face this whole time, and I just didn't see it. The place is henceforth to be called The Rose. Feel free to ask me for the story on why, unless you're the type who hates mushy stuff - if that's the case, you'll only be disappointed. Now, who's got some artistic talent and wants to make us a sign for the place?

There's a palpable feeling of anger in the air from many of the people here. That missive, it reminded me of myself once.

They'll be speaking, holding a rally and I suggest its something that be listened to and their concerns be noted.

Their feelings are no less relevent than anyone elses here and for all we know they may well be correct.

Fight Club on Friday; same time and place as last time. Let Evie and I know if you're interested. Let's skip having a battle beforehand, yeah? That was ill-advised.

The rules for those of you who are new drop-ins: no props, no weapons, no powers save those you can't help. All levels of experience welcome. First one to go down and stay down loses; the winner goes on to the next round until everyone's had a go. The matches are random so no whinging at me if you don't fancy your partner. First time you cheat, you're out and that's that. Last month's winner was that Russian bloke whose name I can't be arsed to look up to spell properly, but he gets first dibs on his partner. Congrats again, mate.

Thinking of something else, too; see if it drudges up any interest. Anyone without much background in fighting or self-defense - do you want lessons? I could use a project. I'm only human but I learned young, and have practical knowledge of how to get a bruiser off your back. Don't believe in following specific artsy-fartsy styles of fighting much, but I do believe in being able to defend yourself. Drop me a line if this might be something you fancy.

[ OOC - Please check the 01/15/16 sign up list here to determine a) if your characters you want included are included, and b) if there are any dropped or disinterested characters on that list that need to be taken off. Then, comment on this entry with any updates that need to be made. Sign ups close 01/13/16 at 12:00PM EST! ]

[Posted after the truth spell wears off at breakfast]

I believe celebration drinks are in order. We all survived telling the God's Awful truths in our hearts. Some better than others, I think.

However, celebrating that our forced confessional is over I believe is an excellent idea. And, if some have other reasons to celebrate as well. Well, let's all just drink to being alive.
