So...some stuff has happened since I last posted. To all those people who laughed when I asked what goes on around here? I understand...weirdly now. I mean, I was open before? A little on the unbelieving side, but I think most wouldn't believe until they start to be apart of it themselves and, well, there ya go! I hope everyone is safe out there. I heard there's a hostile take over? Or trying to be? Bloody hell.

Which brings me to announcement #2: I have a new job! Thanks to those who recommended Baxter's! Not only do they serve superior everything, but it's a much better environment. If anyone is looking for a safe refuge, Audrey said she usually opens up the bakery for those in need.

[Lina, Pete, Match, Rey, Garcian]
Well, I was hoping to go out for a celebration of a new job, but I'm thinking there are more important things right now. Stay safe out there, yeah? Knowing some of you, you may actually be going out to help.

To be from London and living here, it brings upon a slew of thoughts and the urge to travel back given recent events. Hasn't been this bad since IRA bombings in the 90s. However, it's a challenge that will take a generation or so to overcome - but we will, and living in fear is no way to live at all.

But alright, I won't go on about that. I find this is entirely too accurate when it comes to parenthood:

Children are disgusting, they really are. Those adorable buggers.

Honestly, this is rather uncanny. Who would have thought that Rami Malek would make such a good Freddie Mercury? Well, at least looks wise at Live Aid. I must say that it certainly makes me want to go back and see Live Aid again.

Especially after today. Thank goodness my parents are safe.

It was Halloween in the dream, which was all well and good despite how absolutely awkward it was to have Adam trying to beg me to take him back. Then things got better. We were drugged and kidnapped by witch hunters. I was first on the chopping block to be killed, but somehow Cassie stopped it. Luke ended up catching fire when he dropped the match in her witch's cruid.

I'm officially tired of people trying to kill me all the time. People, demons. I'm tired.

We decided to have a meeting because Cassie's grandma wasn't answering the phone and has been gone for a while. We went to Faye's grandpa's house to look for Cassie's grandma. It was pouring when we got there and Faye was acting weird.

Cassie got a text from her grandma saying she was going to be home the next day, so that was a relief. Things just got weirder, though. Faye said there were weeds and mud in the tub, but when we got there, there was nothing. Faye decided later that we were playing truth or dare while drinking, and I ended up with my shirt off. Then it got super awkward. I dared Cassie to kiss Jake and Adam got angry and Faye and Cassie started fighting.

I had an Adam relapse before we heard Faye screaming and ran to find out what was happening. Cassie found Faye's grandpa dead. Does it ever stop?

So in closing, everything is terrible, I'm exhausted, and I need better taste in boys.

Round #3 with Hellmaster (may it be the last ever, peace out jerkface) went a little differently then I'm used to - Lord of Nightmares just went whoosh out of my body after Big Bad Destruction happened, no bargaining necessary - but I can't complain. My hair's not blonde, nothing's going into the abysmal toilet of nothingness, it's a good day. Now the next adventure involves finding the Stupid Swordsman a new legendary sword because his got transported back into its rightful overlord, and some idiot village mayor tried to convince me Excalibur was real so I punched him in the face. I don't know how I didn't get arrested but, well, can't complain there either.

In other news, Pete and I are looking for a doctor in our lovely dream community whose got some experience with genetics. We want to get our recently mobile child tested for this mutant gene, and I know there's a couple of you out there who might know someone?

Things are kind of strange in the aftermath of Nick's death. We're holding the wake at Adam's dad's place. On top of that, Nick's brother is back in town. There's bad blood between him and Adam because when he had a job at his dad's place, he stole from him. But the thing of it is...I don't think his getting angry with Jake now is about that anymore. I hate when Faye is right. Having your boyfriend get jealous over another girl talking to a boy is not what I signed up for.

The kicker is that his dad keeps saying that they are destined to be together. Cassie and Adam are written in the stars.

Also, can I explain how frustrating it is to be angry about a boyfriend that I don't even have. Ex-boyfriend. We broke up because the thing of it is, I can't...be the one that just stays there and watch while someone I love starts falling in love with someone else. I don't even

I don't even know. The emotional crossover is a pain in the ass.

So, I don't even know if you all are real, but I had a friend who swore you were, so...

I haven't Dreamed yet, but I got a present from my dream world, and, after seeing the movies that were made about that world, it seems like something you all should have, if you are really out there protecting this place.

I woke to one of the Ultron sentry's heads sitting on my bedside table. Nearly scared me to death, mind you.

Not that it's moving or anything, but... uhm, something tells me it is better not to have it just be sitting around.

Interested?

This isn't so much of an existential crisis as a what the hell is life and does this really exist??

Apparently there's this comic where I'm teaming up with Ian McKellan (dressed as Gandalf) and we're entrusted with this, uh, task from the Sorcerer's Guild and going up against demon summoners from Mordor. I think there's a panel with flying banana peels - look, I don't know - and then the shenanigans cause me to flip a table of food that just showed up outta nowhere.

Cue explosions.

And Christopher Lee (dressed as Saruman) at the end.

I don't know much about Lord of the Rings but what I do know is this: Sunday afternoons need vodka in the orange juice, not champagne. I'll be toasting to you, Sir Ian McKellan.

Someone explain to me how dream-Clint gets all the whack jobs, even when he's not on a damn team. Clowns man. Clowns.

I'm so fully and totally over this bullshit. And it always seems to include Barney. I'm considering ex-communicating him just in case.

Seriously. Clowns!

And just to top it off, I wake up completely deaf with a dog licking my damn face. Fun times.

I had the most disorienting nap today. Mostly because I was dreaming about some girls I don't know. I felt like I should know them. Like maybe I did? Only I've never seen them before. I think I'd remember.

This girl Faye set a girl Cassie's car on fire. On purpose. Without touching it. Who does that? Besides obviously Faye. Luckily this boy Adam (who is apparently my boyfriend?) was there to save her. She apparently doesn't understand the point of being careful with our...powers? We're witches. Apparently. At least in the dreams. I think I must be more stressed out by my classes than I thought.

I'm not a baby anymore! I mean, I'm not that old, but I can walk. I'm five now! I almost fell off a cliff, but then I was saved by tree roots and they put me back on the ground again! And I saw the woman with the horns again. I practically forced her into a hug after she told me to go away and then made her pick me up. She was clearly not that pleased. But she still let me touch her horns and the collar of her clothes before putting me down and shooing me off.

I hope we will be friends! It's the second time we've run into each other, so probably she's going to be very important! And the crow was with her! So clearly she is friends with the crow and it was her that made sure I was fed! I can't wait to see her again!

I've had a set of healing herbs carried over from the dream fairy aside from Dream Set #2 and behold, it was a saving grace - woke up with my windpipe not in the best shape thanks to an assassin in Dream Set #3 that snuck into my bedroom and almost choked me to death while staying in a castle. Someone didn't skimp on the money it took to hire a killer with some credibility, and it turns out this guy's never missed a target up until my swordsman pal heard the scuffle and barged in (wearing pajamas) to fight him off me. Nothing gets by Gourry, not even sneak attacks in the room next to him. It's like having a guard dog.

And now begins that reliable, stable cycle of being hunted, losing sleep, paranoia, another possible end of the world scenario caused by yours truly, but who knows. This one's got enough variance that it might go down differently. I'm still waiting for the fruitcake in cheap priest robes to show up and troll me appropriately.

Anyway, I stumbled upon the princess I named my daughter after and I hope, hope that I didn't curse my kid into fulfilling her namesake's reputation. Which involves longwinded speeches of justice and truth, while standing up in a high place, in the face of danger, like the demons she's talking to are about to realize the error of their ways and stop doing what demons do.

My dream aunties tried to feed me carrots. I'm a baby, though, so I can't eat carrots or vegetables. I get the feeling that they really don't know how to care for babies in the dreams. Luckily, there was a crow that brought me food that I could actually eat. It was kind of weird, but at least it stopped me from being super hungry.

It's still very strange to keep dreaming of myself as a little baby, though.

I think I had a dream! Or two dreams! They were two separate times! Only I was a baby both times! We traveled in a cart to a cottage in the first one and then there was a very interesting looking woman who came to my window. I think she was trying to scare me, but also I didn't seem very scared. Well, perhaps for a moment I was startled, but then I just went back to smiling. It's very strange to dream about being a baby. I don't remember my parents. I just remember three ladies taking me to the cottage...only they almost forgot me outside and they had very shrill voices. But they seemed very nice all the same. They reminded me of my Aunties!

65 years ago today, Princess Elizabeth spent the night in a beautiful Treetops Hotel in Kenya. In the morning she left a Queen. It's Queen Elizabeth II's Sapphire Jubilee. The first in history to celebrate the milestone. A bright spot in an otherwise dark and depressing year. Long live the Queen.

Not. Dead. Yet.

I had another Dream. Eph managed to wake me from my slumber, but I'm still feeling the Master's voice. I was dead set on translating the recording, but wound up puking in a bucket. Eph suggested I lay down. I said that was probably a good idea.

He made me soup.

He told me he was worried about me and would never be able to find his son without me.

His hand was on my knee.

Suddenly it got awkward and he left.

I don't know, Asami. I don't think it's Quinlan that Dream Me has a thing for.

I'm not sure what my school computer was trying to tell me when it showed me this place (I did wait until I was home to actually look into it), but hello!

My name is Aurora. I'm honestly not sure what else to say except that my book of birthday flora tells me that today's flora is Iceland moss, which is supposed to symbolize health, so I hope everyone is feeling well today. If anyone isn't, you could tell me some of your symptoms and maybe I could make a tea blend for you.

Something happened that I never thought would happen in my Dreams. I met a Strigoi who isn't entirely unpleasant. Well, he's half-Strigoi. His story is rather interesting. His mother was pregnant with him when the Master himself fed from her. She was turned, but before she could transform fully he was born. Now there's some sort of prophecy that he's supposed to be the one to bring down the Master and once the Master dies he'll die, too. His name in ancient Rome was Quintus Sertorius, but now everyone calls him Quinlan. He's rather tall and terrifying and even better with a sword than I am. He seemed awful interested in me. I don't think he sees many women.

At the end of the year, I had a two night dream dump. After my final death, I went to this place. Sort of a place of waiting, where I get to watch. I haven't dreamed about what I'm supposed to watch, because with the New Year I started dreaming I was a doctor. Still a mutant, still and X-man, but a doctor.

Last update on those was testifying against a mutant registration act in Congress. Great.

This county is completely mad sometimes. Alright, by 'sometimes,' I clearly mean on days of the week ending in 'y.' A house overflowing with candies from Britain, just what I always wanted.

I must have thought of it on a night I was particularly craving something sweet. Toffees, black licorice wheels, sugar mice, jelly babies, cherry bonbons, loads of Cadbury. At least the constantly-hungry wife is appreciating this. I'll share as well, not to worry.

Go big or go home - this year's Thanksgiving culinary centerpiece is going to be a cajun turducken. Chicken stuffed into duck stuffed into turkey, so it's basically an edible birdception of delicious meats. I'll probably end up wrapping it in bacon while it cooks so all the juices get absorbed because why not.

(Mostly doing this because my troll of dad said I couldn't pull it off and I will show that jerk otherwise.)

On a more OC-like note, the dream fairy gifted me with my 'WANTED' poster. You'd think I would have gotten this forever ago - every dream cycle involves bounties, me getting framed for things I didn't do, and demons trying to off me left and right - but nope, better late than never. I'd almost be tempted to toss it out if it also didn't have a depiction of two of my traveling companions, and considering I don't know any of them in this life, this will be the closest I'll ever get to a picture with them.

At least we were expensive.

My cheeks also aren't as chubby as what's depicted on the stupid thing, who the fuck got paid to do this???

What depressing times we live in. Left to go on a honeymoon and returned to...whatever this is. We ought to have stayed beneath the wonder of the Northern Lights for longer, I gather. But there were important things waiting for us upon our return - a fat calico cat (how is this fluff still alive), busy holiday season at my sister's occult bookshoppe, and of course our baby daughter. I missed her the most, admittedly. She's growing into her English nose.

Saw a few reindeer in Finland though. Reminded me that holiday madness is just around the corner. I can only imagine what will befall us this year, in Orange County.

Frantic wedding month starts out with waking up looking like a complete albino thanks to Dream Set #3 - white hair, don't care. My magic is zilch for the next couple days and I caved into getting coffee for the first time in what's probably been a year, but the next time I hear someone say 'ohhh she started Halloween early,' this hot pumpkin spice latte is going to be poured over their crotch.

So far it's a similar timeline with some differences, such as: the Queen of my home kingdom hates me, my sister's level of psychosis has risen a couple notches to the realm of potential abuse, and there's rumors going around in which I'm actually a 500-year-old reincarnation of a demon lord. There's a couple comforting constants, with Gourry still being an idiot and...well, no, that's really the only comforting constant. Still won't hand over the Sword of Light, either. What a bummer.

On the bright side, I woke up to a crap load of treasure salvaged from a bandit camp that mysteriously went up in flames. You know your life's made a complete turn-around when instead of hoarding the goods to yourself, it's all going into your child's college fund even if she's only barely five months old.

That also means I have some tiny clothes to get rid of because of time going too goddamn fast and her chunk factor increasing, if anyone needs 'em.

Y'know, the one good thing about a second set of dreams is kind of knowing what to expect. I expected a baby-faced demonlord to kidnap my best friend to use against me, and I expected him to make us fight while Gourry was consumed by demonic armor. Typical repeat stuff.

But I don't think Hellmaster expected Gourry to put a literal hole in me with the Sword of Light under the armor's thrall, and I don't think he expected Gourry to break free from its influence and turn the sword onto himself. The last seconds of being alive, i saw my best friend stab himself. Definitely not how it went the first time around. Seriously, what? Ow on all fronts.

Lucky me, though - the Lord of Nightmares brought me back from death unprompted, just in time for my second rodeo with Hellmaster. It all went down the same way, where he wanted me to cast the Giga Slave so he can mess up the casting and make the world go boom. A pact with the Lord of Nightmares was made, an exchange of a life for a life. In the end Gourry traded the Sword of Light to her to get me back. All's well that end's well, but funny how this all comes around almost the exact day I got sucked into the void. No one's crap is disappearing a second time in an apocalyptic storm, don't worry.

On a happier note, our baby is two months old this very day. I'm going to enjoy the last stretch of maternity leave with my little stinker before it's back to the desk, picking apart magical bits and bobs and wearing clothes that don't have throw up on them.

If you're out there fighting all the shit that's running around and you see those nasty bald things that shoot their... Tongues... Proboscis... Whatever it is at you? Those are the Strigoi from my Dreams and the only sure way to kill them is by beheading them or burning them to a crisp. Artificial UV light works as well as sunlight, but I don't know how many of you are willing to tote around portable UV lamps. Silver really hurts them, burns through their flesh.

Just stay away from those things they shoot out. Their fangs are at the end and if you get stung you're done.

Two years of living here - give or take - and this place has finally decided to start turning me into my alien-self. Except in my unlucky scenario, it's not a magical 'wake up and I'm blue and scaly' thing. It's uncomfortable with a touch of awkward, but it won't take much to adjust when it's all done. As a turian I can take a goddamn missile to the face and survive, on the bright side. It's happened. The scars were impressive.

Anyway, thanks to the transition I've experienced a growth spurt that's forced me to purchase an entire new line of clothing to accomodate the extra height and longer limbs. If you're about six feet and can fit in a large, I've got clothes that I need to get rid of. My wife's fussing about how it's all taking over the closet. The sooner the better.

I'd also comment about how much I'm going to miss the human taste of food, but my allergies (a cosmic joke, I'm sure) have made it damn near impossible to enjoy most things, so maybe not.

Got the best surprise in the world today and it left me with a shitload of fresh bread. Like over a hundred loaves. Any shelters out there in need of fresh loaves of bread? There's no way in the world I'm going to eat all of this before it gets stale and/or moldy.

Alternatively, any hungry souls out there want a delicious loaf of bread? I deliver!

It is with a bit of exhausted fanfare that I proudly announce the arrival of our half-English, half-Yank spawn - Lina gave birth to our daughter today (without the need of drugs, mind you, whereas I certainly almost fainted a few times). Amelia Romany Wisdom is her name, and she's just a little over five pounds and a couple weeks early but apparently she was eager to make her grand debut and join all the oddness around here.

They're both doing well, though Amelia will probably have to stay a few days before we can bring her home. Our families are all quite happy too, but that could be due to the vodka my future father-in-law brought with him. Visitors are certainly welcome if you're so inclined.

Things I want for Mother's Day, but can't have:

- Time speeding up so I can pop this bundle of brat out of me.
- To sleep on my stomach again.
- To sleep at all, and preferably on my bed, because lately the hard floor's colder and more comfortable.
- To see kitten videos and not cry because their cuteness is somehow so goddamn moving.

And to dream less about town slaughter in the hands of a demonic fruitcake, but that's unrelated to me being a roly poly. It's another round of 'shit breaks, blame Lina for it awhile simultaneously making comments about the size of her breasts.' The story of my lives.

Well I had a weird dream last night. Not sure if it’s one of those dreams people get here, but I guess we’ll see. I was a skeleton - but not a human skeleton. A monster skeleton. Not a dead monster, they...dissolve, I guess, into dust. Just a skeleton. Making skele-puns. And all of us monsters lived underground, because we were banished there by the humans and sealed down there. Nothing could get out. Spoilers for Undertale, visible to all )

Once again, it seems like Orange County has done something. I think this is an excellent swapportunity to get to know your neighbors. Or at least some of you. Glad I'm not a part of this. Never had a switch to be anyone but me.

I was wondering why I was feeling so top heavy.

Tried a new look to get my mind off of Eichorst. Blue extensions. They just clip in and snap out, so I don't have to wear them to work tomorrow. Thank God. I'm sure Ruth would have had something nasty to say about them. Anyway...

What do you think? )

Okay, I'm 80% sure I'd like Bucky!Cap way more if he'd stop trying to be Cap!Cap. Waking up with a headache from this bullshit. Someone should've caught the memo about domestic superheroes breeding contempt. Drew and Danvers are all that're keeping me sane. Lets not start on the convoluted mess of my marriage either

Trainwreck aside, I might actually get used to this damn codename change finally.

New apartment hunting is go! In a related note, I have a studio for sale. Loft apartment overlooking a very large work space. Originally for an artist be easily converted into anything you want.

Nothing wrong with it but I don't need something like it anymore.

Many thanks to the conniving masterminds behind that surprise shower (and Zee for sacrificing her abode!), and many thanks for the abundance of meat I've only seen in medieval feasts in dreamland. I've been spending every waking moment of free time organizing the shit out of the nursery. And laughing at my own hormonal OCD. And then crying because the cat knocked everything over.

On another note, I flipped through the stinky old books I got from the dreamfairy, and there's a sealing spell that protects property against magical and natural fire. Well, alright, it's more of a ritual because it's tedious and time consuming, but around here a little extra insurance around these parts against the weird elements doesn't hurt.

If anyone wants the steps/ingredients, let me know. I'll send copies. I'll be setting it up for our own place for, uh, the obvious reasons. I can't remember what number we're on when it comes to TV replacements but it's pretty freakin' astounding how much money goes to preparing the shit we've broken.

My nighttime soap opera isn't through yet. When I last dreamt I'd moved into an apartment with Nikki. Quite a lot has happened since then. In my last dream I set to vampire-proof our apartment with the skills Vasiliy taught me. Who should stop by for a visit but the man himself and our mutual friend Nora? They came to tell Nikki and me that vampires had broken into Vasiliy's apartment. Apparently the child we'd been living with let them in. His mother is one of the sentient ones. Anyway, Vasiliy and Nora were going to tell a politician that Red Hook was no longer vampire-free and they wanted me to come with, but Nikki was hesitant to let me go so... But then on their way out Vasiliy complimented my welding. It made me feel so happy. I never get compliments like that from Nikki in the dreams. I think when I was welding the only thing I got from her was "You look so gay doing that." It was said in humor, but it's still a far cry from a compliment.

Anyway, I've got a bad feeling about vampires getting into Red Hook. We worked so hard to clean them out. If they're coming back, they'll come back with a vengeance.

I'm not one of those women who considers Cosmopolitan to be the Bible, but I do find myself agreeing with parts of this article. You're damn right I'm going to make sure no one is storing nude photos of me on their phone. I know technology. I know how easy it is to hack a phone.

Fuck, I never post on this forum, do I? I think the last post I made I was a woman, then before that the bearer of bad news. It feels odd to not have anything catastrophic to say.

I've always hated that 'pink for girls, blue for boys' shit so imagine this in orange font or something. Anyway, according to the doctor's poking (which looked uncomfortable) we're having a girl and I unfortunately didn't get any 'it's a girl' biscuits or cakes or cigars, but if anyone wants to drink with me tonight, I'll be at [insert name of bar] and I'll buy you one.

Names are still being brainstormed. That one's tough, isn't it?

Okay, who the hell just gives other people's stuff away? I mean, sure, dead and all, but c'mon man.

Don't know how much stock to put in that death thing in this place, but jeez, giving away a mans bow? That's low, even for Cap and his well meaning.

I'm pretty sure this samurai thing isn't gonna stick.

I can't believe the holidays are officially over. It was quite lovely to have my parents come out here to visit. I just left them at the airport for their flight back across the pond a couple hours ago. They truly loved seeing Sharon's parents and little Viv because they just couldn't stop talking about it. They also got to meet Steve Unfortunately it's now time to get back to work and work off the stone I probably put on with all the delicious goodies that everyone was making the last couple weeks.

May have to think about going to a happy hour tomorrow after work. Any recommendations and who wants to join?
