So I found out I'm engaged to a thief today.

Have you seen those ads for the really adorable plague doctor and plague nurse plush? I preordered them and I've been really looking forward to them. Since it was a preorder, I wasn't really expecting when they'd come, I just figured they'd get here when they get here, you know?

I went into Nico's office space today to see them sitting on a shelf.

Now that I've finally gotten all of the pieces for my Halloween village and set it up - yes I know I've covered every space with it Will and Hazel, you can do the same with a Christmas village - it's time for my actual favorite Halloween tradition: visiting the area thrift stores to buy all the little statues they have to turn into haunted statues for the kids scavenger hunt on Halloween.

[Private to Mal]

Want to come make some haunted statues with me?

I have many regrets and most of them is getting involved in this Tik Tok.

I can't stop watching cat videos!

So I'm now on desk duty answering phone after saving the world and losing my live. Till Howard Stark entered my life, office clerk/officer by day and not quite sure what to label myself by saving the world at night? It's a joke that I can do more work than an whole office can, but that's how world of my dreams is. I'm lucky enough to have a fellow name Jarvis to work with, he's a lifesaver. At least I'm still trying to go good in the world, even if I go unnoticed.

Please keep in mind, if you wake up with something that's happened into your dreams. Bruises, wounds, are you in hurt worst than that.

Come to the clinic!


We understand and will help treat you.

Okay so I just got to remember what Amycus said and not discuss what happened expressly So coach says I'm benched for the next few weeks. Probably a good thing. Give me some time to get my head back on straight. Lace will probably like having me around the house even though I don't give her rotisserie chickens.

[Leon Orcott]

So thanks for not letting me make things even worse for myself. And keeping them from getting too many pictures of my naked ass.

[Isabelle Evans-Bracken]

I'll go along with whatever the judge says I have to do if we can keep me out of jail.

OOC: Chase got arrested for drunk and disorderly three nights ago after skinnydipping in the fountain of a local restaurant, Leon kept him from getting too many pictures snapped of his naked ass by the press but people might have seen it, and Chase spent the night in jail.

New school year, new classmates. And I always like to let classmates know, in case of future group projects, that I'm dyslexic and have ADD. Because I figure that's something important to know in case of future group projects. I'd rather be upfront about it now instead of looking like I'm using it as an excuse later. One of them said I didn't "seem like there's anything wrong with me". First that's... just insulting. There's nothing wrong with me, my brain just works differently. Secondly I've been on medication for it since I was a kid. And they replied asking if I've tried going without it and just "tried harder".

We are in the first year of medical school. How are you even here if you're questioning the legitimacy of medication? And I admit, I'm not perfect. There are mornings I've forgotten my medicine because something was going on and I got distracted. It's ...usually pretty obvious. The fact I usually seem whatever you consider "normal" means it's working.

Just finished the sketches for the first group of Mythomagic figures and cards based off what I got from my dreams. There’s going to be of course the gods and goddesses and monsters - I really like the designs I came up with for Hades and Cerberus - but I’m also going to do some based off the other demigods in my dreams. Starting with the Hunters probably since they were the first ones I met. Well after Percy and Annabeth anyway.

You know those little ceramic houses people collect to make christmas villages to decorate with? Apparently they make Halloween versions of them, because Nico just bought every piece Micheals had and is busy trying to find outlets for them all in our living room.

Do mobile game makers who insert ads that you have to interact with before it will let you move back to playing the game you were already playing understand that this is the last thing that will get someone to download it? I get it's a free game and has to make money somewhere, but that's... not it. I'll watch an ad, but if you make me play a mini game just to get back to what I'm doing, I don't want anything to do with it.

So spent my off day catching up with managing my businesses in GTA Online after my run. Normal for me between the run and my actual work out, Lace was hanging out with me and Rock. And then I came across something I'd never seen in any of the GTA games I've played before - a bulldozer just off in one of the lots. I had to go see if I could get in it and drive it - the answer is yes, I could - and then I figured out I could move the scoop in game. Pretty sure Lace got a kick out of my thoughts while I was trying to pick people up in the scoop just to see if I could.

Hazel's cat just curled up and fell asleep on Ziggy's back and he's just looking at me in confusion. Like he's absolutely unsure about what to do with his little cousin deciding out of nowhere he's a bed. Either that or he's afraid of moving and disturbing her, I'm not really sure. My poor confused boy, either way.

After a few days of having Cesare looking at us like we betrayed him by bringing another puppy in the house, we gave my dad a golden retriever for Father's Day yesterday. I know I know, you're never supposed to give anyone an animal as a present without discussing it with them first. But. It's been awhile since Sunny passed, and I knew how much she meant to him. And.. it felt right. And I am really, really glad we did it. You can tell while he was in no way expecting it, that he was a good surprise. Ziggy's going to miss his playmate I know, but it's not like we're not going to take the boys to go visit him.

Never been so glad that I held onto my old run down van. It’s made it a lot easier getting the stuff for Lace and Rock’s yard renovation easier. She makes it a little difficult to get orders just delivered out to the house so I’m pulling transport on my off days. She’s still loving exploring the yard and now that more of it is cleared she’s got more room to scare the shit out of squirrels. She’s not doing anything to them or even threatening them just walking towards them because she’s curious about what these things in our yard are.

So now I know who it is giving out fliers looking for me - my cousin Annabeth and her dad, my Uncle Frederick. And apparently it’s not just my cousins hanging around in my dreams but Blitz’ friend Hearth is there too, which doesn’t surprise me all that much considering how close the two of them are here. As I’m getting ready to take off from the Public Garden Blitz tells me to go see Hearth in Copley Square but I’m a genius and instead head toward Beacon Street which is where I find out who’s handing out those fliers. It’s kind of weird for me to see them there since apparently the last time I saw them in the Dreams was a decade ago when my other Uncle had everybody at his house for Thanksgiving. I don’t get too close to them there but I do listen in on their conversation - apparently my life is in danger which is a shocker I know since I’m a teenager living alone on the streets of Boston. But the day she died there - the last thing my mom told me was to run and hide and not trust anyone. And whatever else - not to go to her brother Randolph for help. That she’d find me which...didn’t work out.

I know she told me never to go to Randolph, and knowing him here I can’t really blame her because the dude’s a complete dick, but dreamMe has to know why all of a sudden my family cares whether I’m safe or not so I head off to his house in Back Bay since I know for a fact that Randolph is out. Just because she told me never to go near him doesn’t mean I can figure out his schedule and loot his house when I need food right?

I saw a youtube video on how to make your own fake amiibo cards for Animal Crossing (as well as anything else that uses amiibo cards) and I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I would love to be able to bring my villagers I was so attached to in New Leaf here (calling Shep). And on the other hand that just... really feels way too much like cheating to me and I'm not sure I could bring myself to do it.

I have no idea exactly what Nico's video game did to him, I just wish it didn't involve a character I share the same name as apparently not doing anything. Because there's nothing like reading next to your significant other when all of a sudden he's yelling at Will Turner. Because I thought he was telling me I was totally useless at first. And all I'm doing is just. Studying.

You know, I'll never understand why people say Tom Nook from animal crossing is evil. He doesn't charge any interest on his loans, my mortgage has absolutely no due date, and I pay it off doing things around my island (and my village before that) that I was going to do anyway. Besides, he's got two little nephews? to take care of.

And if you catch him at the right time in the tent, you can annoy him by running around in circles while he's trying to read or drink his beer. No, Nintendo, I don't believe that can's a soda in the least.

Blathers, on the other hand, can quit telling me how gross he thinks my donations are before I find a new museum curator. I wish I could have just hired your sister instead.

Why did no one ever tell me that the Romans used flying penis amulets to ward off sickness? Why was this never in my history books in school? That might have gotten me to pay attention in class! This is extremely bloody fitting for our current situation and I think everyone should start wearing flying penis amulets so the bleeding Corona virus can go bugger off. Of course, even if there wasn't a pandemic right now, I'd still find this extremely fascinating.

I need a flying penis amulet now. I wonder if this is the sort of thing someone would be selling on Etsy?

Now that we've finally gotten settled into the house I figured it was time to go ahead and bite the bullet and get Old Lace a friend to keep her company when I'm not there. I haven't named this guy yet but why should that stop me from introducing him to everybody so that nobody freaks out over a rock that moves when they come over to visit.

Hi, my name is Clarke and I happened to randomly stumble upon this group when I was looking up something else and of course I became curious about what everyone was saying about Orange County. I mean, I've been here for awhile, but I was still expecting people to be asking things like where's the best place to buy gluten-free avocados or other crazy California things like that, but I was surprised to find people just talking about their lives and stuff. I might stick around for a little while to see what else people post about.

...I get that maybe I'm a little tone deaf and definitely didn't inherit Mom or Dad's musical abilities, but I still feel that howling when I'm singing along to spotify is a little rude and uncalled for.




Just so everyone knows, I'm talking about the dogs. Nico and Hazel are not howling while I'm singing (badly) with the soundtrack to Labyrinth.

So I laid down to take a nap this afternoon and fell into a Dream about what happened after I ran away from my cousin at the camp. I ran off into the woods, which are full of monsters and I don't have a weapon there, and find the entrance to the Labyrinth. Yeah you read that right - The Labyrinth from mythology. Well I didn't find it so much as my clumsy self fell into the entrance but I made it through okay, found a path to the Underworld and my dad's realm and that's where I got my sword.

Which explains why it drains Will if he touches it but doesn't affect Hazel or I - if anybody other than a child of Hades/Pluto touches it it will drain their life force because it's made from Stygian iron.

I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that the new Animal Crossing will autosave the game for you. I mean, generally speaking? I exit out of it without saving for a reason. Like I accidently dug up one of my patterned tree stumps. Now Nintendo wants me to live with the concequences of my actions? Where's the escape in that?

I will be glad to a new game, though. I've been debating selling my town and starting new or just buying a new copy so I can have a fresh experience again, so if I just hold on a few more months, I won't have to worry about it.

One good thing about being moved across the country in the middle of the school year? Mom and dad decided I didn't have to start until after the weekend. I'd rather wait until the new school year all together but it was two against one on the vote for that. All my friends in Boston thought I was so lucky that my parents stayed good friends with everything but they never realized - they were the lucky ones. They got away with whatever they wanted because they could always play their parents against each other.

[Private to Will Solace]
Sorry to hear about the dog man. Mom told us when our flight came in. And that you and your parents helped with getting the place ready so - thanks. I’m guessing you took on my room since it’s definitely not giving parent vibes.

I'm not saying I'm not glad to see Nico and Hazel's dad. I just kind of wish we knew he was coming over before coming home to him playing with the dogs. And it wasn't because apparently he wasn't aware of a charge Nico put on his card.

His phone is off, so if anyone has seen a short goth Italian? Please tell him we're looking for him.

You know what? I’m blaming Percy for this. Somehow this is his fault and as soon as I can figure out exactly how? I’m calling him to blame him. I woke up this morning and the my damn sword from the Dreams was leaning against the front of Cesare’s bed. I’m glad that for whatever reason he decided in his little doggy brain that he wanted to sleep in the bed with Will and me and cuddle last night. He normally doesn’t like to be that close at night.

The sword doesn’t look like Riptide. Or any sword that I’ve ever seen. Not even in one of Father’s movies. It’s all black. And I don’t mean the blade is painted black. It’s black metal. Not dark gray. BLACK. And was sharp as hell when I tested the blade. And immediately got chewed out by my boyfriend for cutting my palm on the blade when I “didn’t know where it had been”. He didn’t seem to like my response of “in my dreams” - pre-med is making him not appreciate my sarcasm anymore. Either that, or the fact that just touching the handle seemed to drain him as much as it scared me, and that’s what caused him to frown at my response. I’m going to stick with blaming it on pre-med though. Worries me less

I don’t even want to know what touching it would do to either of the dogs. Although when I showed it to Hazel it didn’t do anything to her when she touched it, so have fun figuring that one out. I wonder if I can find a sword mount with same day delivery on Prime so that I can get it out of Ziggy and Cesare’s reach before I have to go to class.

I didn’t realize how exhausted I was until I was fixing dinner tonight and actually forgot the word spoon. I spent a good three minutes staring at one in the kitchen, trying to think what the name was before just caving and asking my roommate to pass me the metal thing so that I could stir.

God bless her for only laughing at me a little bit as she handed it to me and restraining herself to only one comment about it. “We call it a spoon for short”.

We didn't think how much we would miss around the OC with the holidays and stuff when we decided to spend some more time in LA after the MCR concert. But Orange County is always going to do weird Orange County things, so did we really miss that much considering? We're back home, and Cesare is acting like he doesn't know who we are or why we think we're allowed in his space and Ziggy is acting like the week and a half we were gone lasted years and won't leave my side. Clearly they have very different reactions to missing their dads.

Our neighbors aren't too happy that we invited kids from "not our neighborhood" to Nico's yearly scavenger hunt. But the kids from our old apartments loved our yearly tradition, and we weren't about to end it for them just because we moved. Our neighbors can get over themselves. Who denies kids fun on Halloween based on where they live? We've got the money, we're happy to spend it on them.

On the bright side, their kids didn't care and loved this new tradition to their neighborhood. Because this holiday is about fun and not status, you snobs.

I was planning on going Trick-or-Treating with Chris tomorrow. Really not my thing, but he was really looking forward to it and I'd already made up our costumes. But I just got told that one of the detectives is out with the flu, and now I've got to pick up a shift tomorrow, which is a load of bullshit. Halloween's one of the worst holidays out there.

I think Ziggy might finally have outgrown his chewing stage. And judging by the last conversation I had with Father, it couldn’t have happened at a better time. My stepmom broke her phone and since she was getting a new one, he decided we all should get new ones. Will and I are supposed to go this weekend to pick ours out, I’m thinking about getting the most expensive one in the store because he can afford it and didn’t get me a birthday present this year.

[Hazel]
I promise I tried to talk him out of it until he’d talked to you about it. He added a line for you - you’re supposed to pick out whichever phone you want and charge it to his account.

Father’s not the greatest with the day to day dad stuff, I know, but he does what he can to take care of us the best he knows how. Which in case you hadn’t guessed is money. Prepare yourself - he’ll be pushing to pay your tuition for next year and to pay off your loans etc. Brotherly advice? Let him.

What in the actual hell? Seriously? Someone tell me that there’s some weirdass tradition in California of pranking waitresses by accusing them of trying to hit on your boyfriend by asking what he’s ordering. Because if not? This girl I waited on today needs a serious reevaluation of her relationship. And possibly her sanity because she went OFF on me for asking what he wanted to order. I had a moment where I thought she was actually going to physically attack me with her coffee mug and no thank you. I don’t care if it has been sitting in front of you long enough that it’s not scalding anymore. I don’t want your coffee all over me.

Also if you are that damn concerned about your boyfriend cheating that you think he might hook up in the back of a diner with a waitress at noon? First - fuck you for thinking so little of someone you’ve never even met before. Second - why are you going to keep seeing someone you CLEARLY don’t trust? Have some damn self respect and ditch him. Or quit attacking waitresses and calling them sluts when they ask “And for you sir?” Because A)They’re just doing their JOB and B) no one wants spit in their food. I wouldn’t do that but I know some servers who would.

Sometimes while I'm taking a break from homework or studying, I'll watch those satisfying videos on youtube, you know of perfectly timed animations or of things perfectly fitting into other things? Just to reset my brain before I can continue with whatever else I was concentrating on. Sometimes I forget I have it on when I go back to studying, and I look up to see that youtube has just continued on showing the next few videos in autoplay.

If you've never gotten a dirty look from a raptor you can't even begin to imagine it. Old Lace is pissed off at me because I told her no about going for a late night walk by herself.

My mom was born and spent the first 18 years of her life in Texas. My mom refuses to admit that she has an accent of any sort. Because Texan isn't one of the most noticeable dialects in the United States or anything like that. Have you ever watched someone who has, and doesn't admit they have, an accent try to talk to AI? Please Mom, please continue telling me how it's the cable company's fault that their system keeps sending you to the wrong department.

That being said, maybe they shouldn't have ever changed the old menu where you just pressed numbers.

Meet Juliet and Marc. Maman’s new puppies for breeding. Juliet was gotten from a breeder someone on here put me in touch with, and don’t let that picture fool you - she has more energy than her raccoon friends can handle.

Marc flew back with me from my brief stop in France this weekend on my way home from Japan. He is actually the son of one of the boys from the same litter as Antoinette, and he most definitely inherited his aunt and father’s cuddlyness. He doesn’t want to sit anywhere but in someone’s lap and actually seems to be perfectly happy to do nothing but that on some days. Regardless of who it is that he sees a lap on, so if you come over to visit - be prepared for a lapful of chubby puppy and clothes covered in dog hair.

I went to the campus early today because I was expecting trouble with my classes since I've missed the first two weeks but none of my teachers had any problem with me just starting to attend. They even told me not to worry about assignments I'd missed and my composition instructor isn't even going to take points off for being late with my summer assignment. I don't know what I did to get so lucky but it feels good to have things working out in my favor this way.

[Private to Haruhi]
And he’s taken to sleeping in my room with Antoinette and I. Sometimes in the bed if there’s a storm or a lot of traffic or noise outside. Unlike her, he doesn’t like to sleep at the foot of the bed, he likes the middle so that he’s right by you with his stuffed bird.

Has anyone ever lost family in their dreams that they don't have in real life? Because I'm... not really sure how to deal with this. In real life, I don't have any siblings. That I know of anyway. In my dreams, everyone in my cabin at camp is a child of Apollo. I have all the brothers and sisters I've always wanted here and never had. And the oldest of any god's children is the head of that cabin. And in my dreams that's Lee. Or, well. It was Lee. Until last night's dream.

How do you mourn a sibling you don't actually have?

I had wondered why a lot of you seemed to be so invested in your dreams, but I think I've figured it out. I'm generally pretty good at remembering my dreams, but this one felt more like a memory than anything else. It wasn't anything special, just a conversation with my mother which I'm sure I must have had here when I was a kid too, except we were living in Roswell, New Mexico (yes, that Roswell).

It was actually really nice. I miss having conversations like that with her.

You know, if this wasn't a satire? I could see Nico all over that.

So... we're buying a house. I mean, technically, Nico and Hazel's dad is buying a house, he's just putting it in Nico's name. But we're hopefully moving out of our apartment soon, to somewhere the dogs have room to run around and play. It's not ours yet, there's still details to be worked out. But... we've started the process. Which means we're also going to have to start the process of actually moving. Last move wasn't so bad, since we moved in from the dorms. And just gradually brought everything from our parents' houses in. This is going to be our first actually big move. And hopefully also our last, because we're actually going to have a house.

It still doesn't feel real yet.

If you don’t want to be asked for your ID everytime you hand your credit card to a clerk at a store maybe you shouldn’t write ‘SEE ID’ on the back in the signature portion. And if you you definitely shouldn’t scream at the clerk for daring to ask for your ID. We’re just following your written instructions and trying to make sure we’re not charging things on your card for other people. You should be pissed at all the people who didn’t ask for your ID after seeing that. Or maybe just be pissed off at yourself for causing this situation by not signing your damn card in the first place.
