I have good news: the mead we started this winter is ready! Those of you who have been missing your honey wine, we have ready to serve at the Rose, including one barrel that we flavored with cinnamon and cloves. Thus far, everyone agrees that both the flavored and the ordinary mead are delicious, but you should come see for yourself.

[Filtered to Command + Brewers]
I've also got a few barrels set aside for trade - it's quality stuff, so it should bring a good price at market.

I am so happy to be back behind my bar, with my Alistair and my friends. Tavern regulars, you're all getting hugs when you come in. Deal with it.

[Filtered to Thedas]
And speaking of friends, we need a Wicked Grace night, promptly. Non-Thedosian friends and lovers welcome, of course, but I want to celebrate being back together, and congratulate all of you who beat back the goblins on a job well done.

Whatever magic did this, it was not the good kind. )

Storybrooke: Pete Lord

Ugh. Two-For-One ice cream. More like Half-Off Death. I'm dying. I'm definitely approaching the vicinity of death. Yup. Gonna be shaking hands with Jesus any second now. Why do you hate me, Dairy?? You're so delicious and I am so WEAK!

Welp, I've done my part to support local business for the day. Time to go home early, right, boss?

Storybrooke: Yoga and Babies and Soap

I swear, if not for yoga class I'd go totally crazy. Ben, you are an absolute lifesaver. I miss doing inversions, though! No headstands with baby on board. :( The belly is big enough to make Wheel awkward now, too, so I'm back down to just doing Bridge.

Alison's got the shop today, so everyone who likes smelling good should go see her at Bare Necessities! The spring scents are in, and if I do say so myself, they are beautiful.

Also, we're looking for some part-time help! If you have a nose for perfumes and fine bath products and a passion for helping people feel their best, come have a chat with us ASAP!

So who wants Nug bacon?

Just kidding, fuckers. You can't eat my nug, no matter if it's got creepy human hands or not. They're cute and he's got a name (Dawnstone, but if the spy master shows up she'll tell you it's something stupid like Schmoopysnuggles or some shit. Don't listen to her.). You can't eat pets with names, it's a damn rule, alright?


I missed a couple of old swords and daggers, and I missed my favorite blanket, and I missed fried druffalo steak with onions...but I didn't miss any of them as much as I missed my sweet puppy! Who is here now!

In other words, don't mind the dog in the tavern. He's a mabari, he knows how to behave. And he may not speak trade, but he does understand it, so don't say anything to him that you wouldn't say to me - he's getting to be an old man, but he's still in fine fighting form. His name is Biscuit. (I know, you shouldn't name a war dog Biscuit. It had been a very long day and he was shortbread-colored, and now he's used to it.)

And if anyone else has pets that have shown up, they're perfectly welcome in The Rose as long as:

1. They fit in the door and don't block pathways
2. Either they have proper control over themselves or you have proper control over them
3. They don't make a mess of the floor

OOC: he looks like this

Fight Club on Friday! Looking forward to seeing your smiling faces get punched.

Speaking of, I say this from a place of love and concern: next time you have one of those screaming around the room bits, is it better to let you wake up naturally, wake you up, or knock you out with a brick to the back of the head?

Christ, mate. You scared the shite out of me You need to sleep, you know, there's probably someone around here who could get you some sort of tea to put you under or something. Potion. Something. It's been ages since you've made it through the night all the way.

[ /Filter ]


Fellow Thedosians, you'll be pleased to know that neither Alistair nor I senses any darkspawn, so it's not the "tainted horrors tunneling below us" kind of earthquake.

At least, not those tainted horrors. Can't really rule out anything around here.

There's a HUNDRED of you with freaky powers so go figure out how to stop it from snowing

-- Is it very busy in the tavern today?

Mar. 9th, 2016


Conversations about Bull's manhood and his asshole. Must be Wednesday.

Also, there's something weird about a shop where they're all smiling and know your name, no matter what they're serving. I think I'll take a pass, and look, you know if I'm not interested, it should say something.

[Thedas Minus Cullen]
So for anyone who was still on the fence about whether Cullen was or Cullen wasn't tickling that Mars girl's belly from the inside.... guess who just asked me to clear out of the rooms tonight?

Look at me, a regular gossip. I'm proud of Curly.

Hi. I'm Emily, Em if I like you (don't assume that I like you). You might know me from such events as Medical Presents: Roundhouse Kick to the Head, and Ungodly Shriek II: The Bitchening. I got here a few days ago with the not-Grant Ward and now I'm free to go to my room to see my roommates for the first time (ew). I'll also be working in admin or whatever for legal, which, okay. Wish I had my secretary outfit.

I think this is pretty much bullshit and I hate this place but I hate wendigos more, so here we go. It's really something to meet you people. If you mess with me, I'll kill you. Cheers, bitches!

It's a lot easier than I expected to change my sleeping patterns, probably because we can't see the sun down here anyway. It was strange to go outside and see it so high in the sky yesterday. I'm used to looking up and seeing the stars and the tops of the taller tents, the cloud maze and acrobats and stargazer.

I'm sorry if I seem to have stared at anyone. I've been trying not to, but there are a lot of interesting people here.

HEY girls who play instruments. Name's Chloe Price, and I do drums or guitar. I was thinking we've got a 100% Pod God-endorsed opportunity to jam together, what with all these instruments all over the place. I'm talking real, grungy, badass MUSIC, none of that faux "girl power lol" bullshit. Let me know if you're interested here and what you can bring to the sisters.

~Ladies~ only. Dudes, respect your game but fuck off already.

I suppose hoping that this place was nothing more than a honey dream gone rancid and that I'd wake up back in London in team was optimistic of me.

Not that I'm ungrateful for the hospitality - I'm not - but what do you want in return? My loyalty? My skills? I noted that you don't seem to have a currency and you're not getting any brass from me, regardless.

Not rhetorical, by the way. No one gives anything for free. So what is it? Where's the catch? Enlighten me.

[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.

log; kallian & alistair

WHO: Kallian & Alistair
WHEN: February 1st, 201
WHERE: The Rose
WHAT: Kallian inhales the black pixie dust and thinks Alistair is a ghoul. This is the short, sweet aftermath once she's back to normal.
WARNING(S): The log starts after they fight. Alistair's not looking too hot.

If I’m getting rusty, I thank Andraste for it. )

When are you next on shift in Medical? I need to see you in your professional capacity.
