Who: Willow -- Narrative: Mentions of Buffy, Tara, AU Willow, Faith, generalized others
When: This evening!
Where: In her room
What: Being a solitary nerdy ball of nerves
Rating: PG(?)
Status: Complete

Willow’s brain just wasn’t stopping, didn’t know how to stop, but at the exact same time her mind also didn’t seem to know where to go either. It was a catch-22 of the utmost frustration. )

Has anyone ever tried blending magic and technology? What were your results?

I'm really curious if there's a tried and true way to combine the two. Since they both work with energies within the world I would think there is, but I haven't been able to find a good cross point for them yet.

Optional* Magic** Survey***

*As in, please don't bother messaging me if it's secretive and you don't want to discuss. Just don't discuss? That's fine.

**Replying to say you have no magical ability or contact with magic where you're from is equally unnecessary.

***Feel free to respond publicly or privately. Private answers will be held in confidence.

1. Do you have the capability to use magic or regularly come into contact with magic? Is there a title you prefer like wizard, magician, psychic, etc?

2. How would you describe the nature of your abilities? For example, is it over a specific element, do you have a particular discipline or scope?

3. How do you manifest your magical abilities? For example, do you use a wand, hand gestures, spoken word, magical texts, spell ingredients, a combination, or none of the above?

4. Are you willing to share your magical knowledge or be called upon to come to someone's aid? Do you have limitations to how much help you're willing to provide or information willing to share?

5. Is there any interest in forming a group, council or coven to continue this conversation?

Thank you for your time.

Someone remind me, how do you make lemonade again?

So, I need a distraction. Who's getting ice cream with me? Speak now or forever hold your peace.

This place is what I think heaven would be like. Except for that kraken bit. That was insensitive. I'm sorry. Wow.

So, I've had some wine. Who wants to do some tipsy magic?


We should go to the spa since you're healed up. I haven't been yet and I've actually NEVER been to a spa. Spa is a funny word. Spaaaa.

[Buffy & Tara]
So I was thinking about all the cruise stuff and ports and big scarey monsters that didn’t go bump in only the night and I think my theory is we should all do something together.

[Magic users except Tara]
So, okay, this feels really weird to post and I hate but I felt really helpless during everything that happened and I would really like to not be all ‘citizen in the hold!’ As much next time. Does anyone want to practice magic together, or help me with getting better with mine?

Has anyone else noticed that the water is getting higher?

I miss school so much.

Is there anything anyone else really misses since getting here? [......] Wherever here is right now...

It was with her own distracting thoughts about school, money, and kittens Willow headed down the stairs into Tara’s room.  )

The differences in cultural and societal beliefs and celebratory measures surrounding the new year are always fascinating. Not to mention the fact that whose new year is right? Which calendar should we really have been following all along? What if none of our calendars are right?

Dec. 21st, 2017


Happy Yule!

I received my Doll's Eye Crystal which I gave Willow when we first started dating and Miss Kitty Fantastico!

not an IC cut )

Santa is magic and real!

Also, thank you to my Secret Santa! How did you know I was a vegetarian? And the tea infuser is SOOOO CUTE.

[Buffy's house]

This ball thing, and these santa letters. How do we feel about these? Are these things normal? Should we respond to the letters?

I was thinking maybe we should do a spell to detect if there's anything wrong with the stationary that was sent to us. Like, is demonic stationary a thing? Should we be worried about it being a thing?

Also, ball? Dresses? Yes? No? We could totally make a house outing fun time for it. :)

...to cause less distress meant she was now sitting on her computer looking at the google search results that ‘How do you know if you're gay?’ had brought up. )

Hey. So we're doing Friendsgiving on the Saturday after Thanksgiving at casa Bat-fam. (Please check with Dick Grayson about the address, because I realize there are multiple Bat-fam houses.) We're gonna aim for people to start coming over at three. I'll be there earlier to cook, obvs. Feel free to bring a friend or two with you if you want.

Here are the rules: everybody who comes needs to bring something so that there's enough for everybody, whether that's food, drinks, entertainment, etc. You can buy or make stuff, I'm not super picky. It's gonna be a chill atmosphere, so dress however you want. I'm def wearing jeans.

We're gonna have some vegetarian options but plenty of meat. Let me know if you have dietary stuff a cook should know about.

Got it? Good! Hit me up if you got questions.

So how would you feel
Do you think I could maybe, posibly, also
I want a
Let's build a

So! What motivated you to make your own super suit thingy? Not to say it's not completely amazing and I'm not totally jealous because I completely am. I mean how cool is building that?

I guess I'm just curious? It seems like everyone has a reason for the things they do and I'm wondering what was yours? Assuming you want to share that with me, and if you don't that's completely fine too and I'll bring you cookies for making you think about something not fun.

[Vanille & Prompto]
So, I was thinking of maybe trying to do something date
How do you
Did either of you make the first

What's your experience with dating, and trying things out with the people you were interested in? Did you try to be affectionate before comitting to anything? Or did you keep it really platonic until you told the other person?

What are your favorite holiday traditions?

[Buffy's House]
Are we a thanksgiving celebrating house, or do we recognize and respect the trials and tribulations that native people went through and how this holiday is a mockery to the pain and suffering the first people of this nation endured due to the horrible ways that the pilgrams treated them?

Nov. 14th, 2017


I know it's still about a month away, but I was curious if any of you would like to celebrate Winter Solstice with me? It's not too dissimilar from Christmas, mainly feasting and drinking while spending time with friends and family.

There’s been so much that’s happened since 1999. I could be research gal into the next decade and not catch up on all of it!

Does anyone have any quick references or suggested reading material for helping me catch up? As much as I like computers I think even my pale complexion could use a little sun sometimes.

[casa de Buffy]
There’s a student who I might have sort of already agreed to help teach computer programming that’ll be coming by around 4pm on some weekdays.

There’s nothing I should be worried about with him coming here, right? No special spells or traps or wacky demon rites of passage?

So that spell we did
You’re such a good spell

It was really fun to complete that ritual with you. :)

The progression of coding languages is amazing. The ones now are so much more complex than [.....] when I'm from. I'm pretty fluent in Standard C++, HTML, Javascript, Java, Python, ColdFusion, Mercury, PHP, Ruby, E, a lot of late 90's programming languages, and have been catching up on the newest ones online. The prior integration of data and object orientation has been crazy upgraded in the newer languages! The mass query and repetition built in? Way easier! Knowing some most some of the older languages that created the base format of these newer languages makes learning these new ones way easier. Being able to look at page source codes without having to hack into the web page itself? Magic! There's so many different OS types. The differences and similarities between them is staggering. I was also looking mobile application development and that's such a huge market, I never would have ever predicted any of this even if some of the coding language improvements were obvious upgrades. Like, duh, of course you'd want the data package to push through automatically by linking the two packages without having to manually code each push.


For something a little less nerdy: Chemistry Cat has to be one of my favorite things on the internet with his little glasses, little bowtie and being so periodically Fluorine, Uranium, Nitrogen, Nitrogen, Yttrium! :D

Uh Hi.

It's Prompto's birthday tomorrow, and he doesn't think I'm planning anything. It'd be cool if you guys could swing by before he gets home from work? [Address] Just for pizza and beer, nothing huge. You don't need to bring anything big unless you want — he's just going to be happy people are around.

Anyway, yeah. Thanks?.
* ooc: literally anyone he's chatted with. the kid's a ray of sunshine.

Things are pretty great.

[Filtered to Prompto and Willow]
So... I told Fang... it went really well. ^_^

I've only had this job for two days, but I can tell I'm really going to enjoy it. Animals are amazing!


WHO: Tara and Willow
WHEN: after the private cake party for Tara's birthday
WHERE: the streets of Tumbleweed
WHAT: The two talk about Sumerian rituals and their connection to each other.
STATUS: thread, incomplete

I'll come running with a heart on fire )

I think I'm going to avoid wearing any kind of costume until whatever is making us turn into costumes is over... Alpha is cool and all but I'd rather not turn into a crazy millions of years old robot.

[Everyone but Tara and Buffy]

So, um, if there was someone who you thought was really nice and sweet, and maybe kind of pretty and you wanted to do something really nice for their birthday for them, what would you do?

I was thinking maybe baking, but I'm not sure what her cake or cookie or sweet flavors are perferred.

If someone's allergic to strawberies, would they also be allergic to strawberry flavoring? Google says yes, but maybe I could sneak some benedryl into the cake? but it seems uncertain?

So, you know I think birthdays are a big deal, and totally should be a big-time deal, and that everyone should have a happy birthday and since Tara's been so nice to me so I'd hate to see someone not have a good birthday. Do you know what Tara likes? have any suggestions for how we could celebrate people's birthdays in the house? I'd really like to make sure everyone has a good time on their special once a year yay-you're-alive kind of day.


(pretend this was yesterday)

Today's my birthday.

We don't have to do anything for it, I just thought it was weird that I'm already 22! I've been kind of saying I was 22 already because it was May where I was and that's kind of close to October??

Oct. 11th, 2017




So, the internet? Wow. This is mega-huge. Like bigger than I ever could have imagined it being sort of huge. Titanosaur argentinosaurus huinculensis cross bred with a Blue Whale kind of huge!

It's so easy to get lost in too.

Has anyone else lost an hour of their life to aodrable cat videos?

[locked: Buffy]

Buffy? It's me! Will! Someone told me you're here... somewhere. Not where though, but if you're here it'd be really cool if you'd respond. This whole thing is really super zany weird and not in a Xander's making too many comic jokes and cartoon references or a inch tall demon is trying to take over the world sort of way but more like I wish Giles was here and I could use his books to be research gal and find out what demon might have done this sort of way. I was told there's a rift? And that we're in Texas? And there was a really nice girl here who seemed really sad when I said I didn't I feel like a major jerkzilla And that the rift messes with time?

Please tell me the rift doesn't mess with time, I don't even want to try to figure out what that would mean for the space-time continuum, and the Hellmouth. I don't want to be zapped back to dealing with a fifty foot fang face in high school somehow because we took a wrong turn at Albuquerque.
