Never a dull moment, is there? For better or for worse.

EXANDRIANS
I know nothing really of this holiday that is coming up, but I was thinking of trying to find something to contribute with and head over to the Barns tomorrow for their meal so long as the eye creature and Revenant problem doesn't get in the way. I know things haven't been simple for any of us with the comings and goings that have happened lately, so I understand if you would all rather sit out, but I thought that I might bring it up, in case anyone wanted to join me and probably Velora (and probably Vex'ahlia) for some brand of togetherness.

I was trying to think of some sort of smooth way of checking in on you that was neither too aloof or too overbearing, but I think we both do better with straightforward, so. How are you?

I realized that in my confusion, I don't believe I actually thanked anyone that I met and that helped after I arrived here so -- thank you, I suppose. This is a strange situation, but that kindness has helped make it a bit easier.

I don't really know Everything here feels rather large, does it not? Some of the buildings are taller than I've ever seen before and there's a lot of bright lights. It's different. I have traveled all over Ravka and spent the last years in Ketterdam and, but I have never seen a place quite like this. Though, I have also been told that there might be some here that are familiar with those places? Not I'm not sure if they are anyone I know as the world is a large place, but I figured it was worth mentioning.

Oh, I suppose I should I'm Inej, by the way.

I don't say this lightly, but I am very much in love with your forest, Vallo. The trees, the oftentimes dangerous animals, the fact that it's ever changing? They should make every forest exactly like this one.

Are you excited for tonight?

Good morning. Ah For transparency, I wanted to let you all know that I woke up remembering more from home than I did last night. It is not as far forward as some of you have recently experienced, but I remember returning to Rosohna after the peace talks. For context, Verin, I teleported from Rosohna to the Mighty Nein's vessel to be present during the talks.

[...] That is all, then. I am not It is I am reminded how appreciative I am that you I simply wanted to make you aware.

Out of curiosity, have the ghosts dissipated, then? I haven't seen any myself, but it hasn't stopped me from being a bit wary whenever I turn corners or enter rooms so I wouldn't mind being able to relax that particular hypervigilance for a while.

The last handful of months have flown by so quickly, I was genuinely surprised when I realized how close it's become to the end of the semester and the year itself. Our years are shorter back home and the months and celebrations are similar, yet different. I think that not having a Harvest's Close festival in the streets of Whitestone or getting to go to Emon to see the bonfires for Civilization's Dawn like I did last year just sort of makes things meld together. I've enjoyed seeing new festivities and traditions here, but I've missed some of the ones from home. I miss a lot from home, but

However, Winter's Crest does seem to have some similarities to the Christmas that I've seen some talk about on the network, so that is something to look forward to! I have to like a holiday that gives me an added excuse to buy gifts for friends.

EXANDRIANS + OTHER FRIENDLY TYPES
Ah, I don't really know how Hello! . !

With the blessing of my housemates, I wanted to invite you all for dinner at the Xhorhaus on the evening of the 13th. Dinner itself would be served around 7PM, though drinks will be readily available ahead of time if you wanted to come earlier for that. I also assure that I won't actually be making dinner, therefore it will be edible as I can't guarantee as much coming from my own hands.

As for the occasion, it has been some time since I could boast having so many people in my life that I liked could call friends and that is something I wanted to celebrate -- at the risk of being incredibly sentimental. It's also I'm It is also my birthday the following day.

Anyway. If you can come, which I hope you will if you are free, please let me know so I can order enough food and provide enough to drink. It would be quite nice to see you all in one place.

So apparently I came into some kind of financial windfall. And because I apparently now let both of my sisters dictate my finances, I asked Velora what we should treat ourselves with given how everything has been latel and she immediately started to try to sell me on video games. I know next to nothing about them, but apparently she has a friend at school that is an expert and I find myself unable to say no to her when the pleading eyes started so long story short, we now own something called a Switch and I think it might be permanently attached to her hands based on how often she was playing it this weekend -- when she wasn't dressed as an armored bear to get candy, of course.

I'm predicting a future of restrictions and no video games until your chores are done kind of nonsense and I walked straight into it. Being the adult is hard work.

This morning a mystery person purchased an additional coffee for me, then my more trouble making students decided not to make trouble, and finally, when I got home, there was a stack of books that I last saw in the restricted area of the Marble Tomes were sitting innocuously on my desk, as though they belonged there.

I am sure it is a streak of luck that is just coincidence, but it has made for a rather delightful day.

I may have overdone it with pumpkin decor on the porch, but I couldn't help but buy every deformed pumpkin that I knew would be otherwise overlooked for the perfectly round ones that had no spots or growths on them. So if you happen to be walking around and see a front porch that is more pumpkin than porch, feel free to appreciate the festive atmosphere.

I made you a breakfast burrito. If you're not hungry now, it should reheat fine. Probably.

That was my casual way of leading into: how are you?

I have been pretty confident in my opinions on the hierarchy within this set of twins and last night's first round match up only further supports that point, I'm pretty sure. It is definitely:

1. Vex'ahlia
2. Vax'ildan

Though, if we add Velora into the ranking, I think we both know that we get knocked down a peg as she is, without a doubt, the best of us and is entirely deserving of being #1 Vessar.

That being said, if anyone out there has it in them to heal a black eye, let me know.

Call me sentimental, but I have yet to get over being able to view a sunrise without squinting or with the use of some sort of protective eyewear. They really are quite something to behold, when I don't sleep through them.

XHORHAUS
I tranced last night, so I was up a bit early and did my best to be productive before having to head to school, which included stopping in at the bakery. Since it has been some time since I treated for breakfast and in hopes that it might cheer, I decided to do just that. So, once more, help yourselves to some pastries.

Oh, and since it has also been quite some time since I kept up the other side of my incredibly ironclad agreement with you, Jester: you all continue to be very pretty. (But Caleb wins out on the scale, as I predictably play favorites.)
