Things got pretty nasty back there... if anyone needs healing I'm around to help fix you up.

I promise it doesn't feel that weird.

I think it doesn't feel that weird?

But yeah, hit me up.

FuckingNice to know the portal can still kick a person when they're down.

This will probably not be a surprise to anyone, but with the threat levels, the Pit will be closed for the time being. We'll make an announcement of its re-opening classes once things calm down.

I was going to talk about a new board game that came in last night, but not really important right now. Stella still isn't Stella, so you know, things continue to be shit.

Aw bro, you took a one-eyed dog? What is wrong with you? This replacement doesn't act anything like him either. You're pretty much the suck as far as copies goes. What did you do? Use these poor fairies to death and then just decide they'd be good family member replacements?

Alright, well, I know there's never the perfect time to celebrate either Galentine's or Valentine's in this world because the portal likes to DO THINGS, but I had a notion of something last year that I figured I'd try again this year.

I'm making cupcakes, and extending it for the week, because let's be real: my days are powered by caffeine and red bull and special organic cupcakes that are NOT containing me anything else when it's not on Dreamless Draught (I have to take a break from it here and there). I call them my self-love cupcakes, and yes they are sprinkled with a little magic. Basically, if there's some part of you that you hate or just don't feel very confident on, the cupcakes help with changing your feelings on it for a day. Hate your hair? Well, you believe you're having a good day. Hate the shape of your eyebrows? Dang they actually look good when you look at yourself in the mirror today!

I'm sending them out on a discounted price than what my stuff usually is. Please know that the effect is completely temporary and only lasts for some hours and does not have any addictive properties and has kind of a strawberry aftertaste. If that's not your jam, that's totally fine.


With everything happening in town, and the recent departures, we've decided to forgo a party for Helena's birthday. We made this decision not long after my Uncle Percy left but hadn't discussed it publicly.

All of that being said, if anyone would like to join us tomorrow at Rapax Races, I can promise that there will be cake and go-karts. Helena has seemed to have a nice birthday this evening but I do hope that wherever my Aunt Luna is now, she enjoyed whichever birthday milestone she reached yesterday in good company and with plenty of joy.

I hate everything. I just dropped my whole collection of Pokemon cards and they went EVERYWHERE and I think I damaged my favorite one!

Also my phone fell in the toilet, Kate. I didn't mean to, it just happened. Maybe you were right about the lady and threatening to punch her in her face. Can I be excused from school for forever now? I'm pretty sure my math homework accidentally catching fire was a sign.

I can't find Stella anywhere so add her to the list of missing pets.

I must have broken a mirror or stepped under a ladder or something, this day is awful. I've run into things, banged into things, dropped things, cut things, lost things and at this point, I think I'm just safer if I stay in bed.


And I just broke my telly.

i texted you and i even called you which i don't think anyone does with phones

Feb. 7th, 2020


I'm not a fan of this. I've never been so exhausted.

Can you sit with me? I'm exhausted. I need to get some sleep. I'm going to try dreamless sleep potion and see if it works, but in case it doesn't, I need you to help me stay up.

I hate that this is a statement that seems to be getting repetitive as days go by, but if any of you need anything, please don't hesitate to reach out here at the Burrow. Whether its to talk or be distracted by a one-year-old.

For the time being, I've decided to postpone my trip to Kent.

The ancient language of Island is a Western dialect of Old Norse. I've been teaching myself how to read and speak it so I can read a manuscript I came across. The Galdrakver. Its previous owner, Bishop Hannes Finnson, was said to have a vast library full of magic related texts. I am inquiring further to try and uncover these texts.

As much as I'm able before we're whisked off into space, that is.

Alright, comrades. I have been jotting stuff down and so I think I can make an official announcement and say that I am going to move out of the Cottage!

... but not very far. In fact, into the backyard. I'm building myself a treehouse. For those who don't know, the naturalists back in Brakebills had one for the students. It was pretty damn sweet. I want to kind of replicate that here except make it Josh-esque. Because if I don't really want to sit around and wait for the portal to deliver a treehouse like it did with Whitespire (which is pretty freaking sweet though).

So what do I need from you? Ummm, mostly just words of encouragement. Those are always nice. If anyone wants to help with the plotting and the magicking a few sturdy trees together, that would be cool too. Furniture shopping can come later, but I'm trying not to go too purchase-crazy right off the bat.

Going PInterest-crazy, however, has already happened.

I'm halfway through the great 2020 Kevin Bacon watch. Of what I've seen so far, got to say, Tremors has been the most fun. There's been some duds, of course, and I think I can firmly say I'll never be watching Hollow Man again, but all and all? Been an enjoyable start to the year.

Anyone got a suggestion for which I should do next? No real rhyme or reason to how I've been picking my choices thus far. I've mostly been going off the cover art.

Personally? I'm eying R.I.P.D. Seems a nice tone shift after Stir of Echoes.

Two weeks late, but I just wanted to thank everyone again for coming to the grand opening of Satyrs. For any future events, Satyrs will be private parties or even catering. We're open everyday for a meal starting at 10AM, then a break mid afternoon (3PM to 5PM), between lunch and dinner, and then we'll be open till midnight on Thursdays to Saturday, and till 11PM on Sundays to Wednesdays.

And you know what? I just realized the awkwardness of naming the restaurant Satyrs and having it open in the month of January because it was around this time last month that I remember actually BEING a satyr on another island. Haha, I told myself I would never think about that time again and yet. YET.

I swear to god there is no magic like that on the restaurant.

So, are you ready to get back into the swing of things? Because I've actually been doing really good on the whole meditation thing.


Has anyone else noticed a rather inconvenient habit of just saying exactly what you mean today? I believe I've left a stranger particularly unsettled. I'd like to figure out how to stop whatever's happened.

anyway i was thinking it's time to break out the waffle iron this weekend. first of the year


Just in case anyone likes listening to stuff while they sleep, I highly recommend lofi on YouTube. I wanted to listen to something while I relaxed and fell asleep for an hour, so clearly it works.

On the upside, Stella and I had an amazing nap.

On the downside, I completely forgot what I was going to do this afternoon. I'm sure if it was that important I'll remember eventually.

It's Tuesday and we all know what that means! I'm on the hunt for delicious tacos.

Last year we did a phenomenal job with not only the Calendar to help out the animal shelter but with the auction last February. Each of the events really helped supply them with money to help with the upkeep of the place, buying supplies for the animals, and helping out with medications and other medical needs.

So we need to keep it up!

I think helping out twice a year is a good amount and would like to keep it up. But I need to know, do you guys want to do the same events each year or do we want to mix it up?

I got a decent amount of money from the portal for Christmas, and managed to get some really good photography equipment. I'm going to start doing freelance photography work on the side. So, if anyone needs any pictures taken for anything, weddings, modeling, engagements, baby photos, or anything else you can think of, keep me in mind. I turned one of the spare rooms where I live into a makeshift studio, but I can do on location shoots as well. Rates are debatable. I can provide samples if needed.


I was really banking on Santa Portal for enough money to live on so I could focus on my studies and what-not. I got some, but not as much as I hoped. Unfortunately, it looks like I'll have to get a job, again.

Is there anybody hiring?

While I appreciate the faux snow setup in Phoenix Park, any interest in turning one of the other parks into a literal snowglobe? The 60 degree weather is apparently putting a crimp in my kid's holiday cheer, and I'm inclined to do something about it. I'm sure the locals won't mind. Been awhile since the town had a gas leak anyway.

Well, my turn to show up in a Hallmark movie. Strangely enough, I realized that of all works I starred in back home, I never did a Hallmark movie. General Christmas movie? Yes. I played Belle in one adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

Don't think I would have acted in one though if anyone asked me, but at least now I suppose I have the experience indirectly!

It seems that despite my best efforts to stay as healthy as possible a cold has managed to sneak in uninvited. It is most inconvenient at this time. There's far too much to do to worry about being sick. I simply don't have time for this.

It is now close to Christmas, so be sure to be careful if you're putting up mistletoe in your homes. The Nargles are harmless, but things will tend to go missing if they make a home in your mistletoe. If you have anything you wish to keep safe, be sure to do so. They seem to like left shoes and little trinkets. In my experience.

Before I tossed out the invites around Tumbleweed, I wanted to let you know first. I got the date for the opening of Satyrs and it's going to be on New Year's Eve! That's right, we're watching the ball drop too!

Thought I'd let you guys know way ahead of times before most of you end up making plans.

I'm gonna go ahead and say thanks right now, for putting up with my anxiety and self-doubt over this whole thing and for helping with everything, yes, even the taste-testing which was basically free food for you guys. Seriously, though, I appreciate all the help!


With Quidditch on hiatus until January, I'm going to open the pitch up on the weekends for community access the first three weekends of the month. I encourage you to come and visit. You can practice free flying, play a pick up match, or we could even try to organize a day of Quodpot if we get enough interested players.

All this being said, the Pitch will be closed for the winter holidays beginning on December 23rd. We will resume operation on January 6th.

And, for the month of December, if any interested party would like to try flying lessons but has been too afraid to up until now, we will have the first lesson be free to interested members.

Don't forget we are still recruiting for the community league and hope to see some bright new faces come January.

And all this being said? I've settled on my choice expedition for this year. RJ and I are going to be heading to Iceland for the New Year. We leave on Boxing Day. I intend to return on the 5th of January.

Calendar says there's another Earth holiday at the end of this month. Does this one come with some sort of warning, or is it tamer than the last one? I'd like to skip the whole dying part of Earthly celebrations if I can help it.


For those who don't have someplace to go Thursday, or would rather grab a drink instead of celebrating, the Roadhouse'll be open from 5-midnight. I'll fix a few dishes, but you don't have to partake if you don't want.

Never thought I would have to protect the plants against snow at any given time of the year here and yet HERE WE ARE, snow event number.. 2??

So the restaurant wasn't close to being done earlier and then it ended up in shambles after the attack. That's what I get for not realizing I probably should have foreseen a monster attack and warded it up.

But it's in the process of getting fixed up, and should hopefully be able to be opened up within the next two months? I'm spending the day working a few things off the menu so if anyone's looking to be taste-testers or just a general distraction, I'm located at [address].
