Well, isn't today an exercise in patience in the face of calamity? I'm going to have to bring extra Flames of Our Lady to Gilmore's shop today, for our daily 'goss sesh.'

Also, if you see this lummox )

Please do not be alarmed. He now belongs to Atreus and they've already hit it off splendidly, as I knew they would when I wandered into the animal rescue facility and said 'please show me the biggest, dumbest canine you have available for adoption.'

The happiest of birthdays to you, Atreus. I'll share shots of Flames of Our Lady in honor of you, with anyone who comes by the shop.

I'm soaking wet from head to toe and fuck this Hotel of Nightmares. Someone come get me - fly, teleport, wish on a star, I don't care. I just want out of this area.

I don't even know how to say this but I don't want anyone to get hurt, so - please just be careful, if you hike in the cliffs or use the waypoints. A very big, very primordial evil showed up here - it's called the Overlook Hotel, and it's from my world. I destroyed it once by rigging the boiler to blow and died with it but it seems a little hardier this time, unfortunately.

Two unrelated items of note:
  • While previously I possessed a dim view of coffee, I decided to give one of your seasonal offerings a try, and I can now apologize profusely for my dismissal of all such beverages: pumpkin spice lattes are perfect. Simply perfect. We've nothing truly like it in Quur, save a cinnamon tea that's not nearly so comforting or sweet. If one of you entrepreneurial sorts wants to offer it up year round, I will consistently skulk within your shop.

  • Secondly, I awoke this morning very literally covered in books. It appears that a portion of my library from back home has found its way to me here in Vallo. I recently acquired even more tomes due to the untimely death of an ally/friend/mentor/traitor/wizard/drunk, but I had not had a chance back home to go through the sheer volume of texts. Should anyone wish to make me their personal lending library, the books are wide in subject and varied, including:
    • Fictional tales of the God Kings: Their Lives and Extremely Messy Deaths
    • A History of Notable Witches (this one was banned, and if you damage it, I will destroy you)
    • A discussion of hand-to-hand fighting techniques (common in the Blight)
    • a Vane epic tale that seems to be less about immortal heroes and their adventures and more of a who-slept-with-who-and-details-on-the-how (not mine, don't know where it came from),
    • my tenth year report on the Royal Houses of Quur that very nearly got me expelled (I stand by every word),
    • Poison Plants of the Southern Empire,
    • Gender Politics and the Horsemen of Jorat (for those of you interested in what it means to 'run with the herd', sexually) and
    • my father's book on soul magic, which I will only lend once I am convinced that you're of a sufficient moral character to be trusted with its contents.
Should anyone be interested. And/or kind enough to dig me out of this mess. Literally. I am still buried in books. They're... everywhere.

In case anyone was keeping track, two days is the official limit for how long I can manage being stuck in bed for injury related and therefore not at all fun reasons before the boredom is too much and I become insufferably dramatic. (Because I wasn't before? There, I beat anyone thinking it to the joke.) Consider this my blanket apology to everyone who has to deal with me on the regular.

Tell me tales of the outside. It's been so long.

Heads up there will still be karaoke at Galahd tonight. Free drink on the house if you were out there this week dealing with dinosaurs. You're cut off at a responsible amount if you're planning on heading out tomorrow.

filtered to magic users*.
The signal that was on the dinosaur island is off and it seems like there's not more interference to magic. However we could use some help securing the island so we don't keep running into the issue of dinosaurs coming into populated areas. If anyone is able to set up barriers, wards, whatever to that end we'll be heading out tomorrow morning. There's five waypoints on the island that will need to be dealt with too to keep the dinosaurs from being able to run into them. Probably a smaller version of whatever goes around the island itself. You'll have defence people to back you up if you're willing and able to come help out.


*or anyone with skills that would work here feel free to chime in, I am not picky guys

Explaining to an eight-year-old that we can't go camping again because there are pterodactyls about (I use that word like I have any real familiarity) is easier said than done. She is far too young to be so good at providing counter arguments around every corner, especially to her brother that is not at all experienced in telling her no.

Also, last night was good fun, though I especially enjoy that my record so far is either getting pushed out immediately or winning outright. Apparently I like my extremes?

Today is Day Three of waking up to a spectral dog wagging his tail and looking very expectantly at me, so I suppose it might be time to name him.

GILMORE & VEX'AHLIA
This is a terribly belated update, so I hope you can forgive me.

You've probably seen varying assessments of how the speed dating went, but I thought it was quite fine. It was odd at first, but it got easier with each person; whether that was me growing more comfortable or the drinks helping that along, we may never know. But the people that I met were very nice and I'm hopeful for some new friendships, so we'll see. Afterwards there was mingling, which seemed like it would be terrible, but Verin was there, so I just stuck near him. I also saw Pike, so there were plenty of familiar faces. I know the point was meeting new people, but Ver it is what it is.

Anyway, that's all I have to say about it. Nothing exciting or scandalous, I'm afraid, but it was nice getting out of the keep and forcing myself out of my comfort zone. I might just have to do it more often, in fact.

And a good morning to you, early morning magic. It was a nice excuse to for tea and the sunrise, at a certain point in time beauty sleep becomes negligible.

Okay. Not exactly an ideal time for a vacation. Normally I wouldn't complain, and this place definitely looks like my kind of place. Plenty to check out. But I've got something I need to get back to. People I need to get back to. They're not going to be So. Rain check?

In sentences I never thought I would string together, I saw a pack of oddly large mushrooms meandering about in the forest while I was out this morning. It felt more Feywild than I was prepared to deal with before coffee so I gave a wide berth, but apparently those exist.

Hello. Do you have some time tonight? I would like to teach you something, if you do. I think you might like it.

Given that I come from a different time and place than our rather technologically advanced (at least in my view) island, I have been attempting to learn as much as I can about my surroundings, the cuisine especially. I have seen donuts and I have seen hamburgers, but there are some places that offer these two things together, as if a glazed donut is a substitute for actual bread and I don't...understand. That or why some taco shells are made of crunchy orange dust. I assume someone ought to be able to explain. Or argue why any of this would be a good idea.

But it's pleasant to have a purpose, at least - I will be teaching Necromancy at one of the magic schools here, which I'm certain will be a delightful experience. Far better than dealing with politics back home - you've got to have eyes in your front and back, so as to anticipate knives coming from any angle.

It's been a week of surprise, but not at all unwelcome, guardianship after Vallo deciding that two Ves twins el Vessars wasn't enough. And while I've had many takeaways from it all, today's is that it's both terrifying and endearing to wake up to a child hovering over the side of your bed in search of breakfast. She thought it was pretty damn funny that she scared me and can be as sneaky as her brother and sister, so that made it worth it.

So that said, I was wondering. It's easy enough to just ask Velora what sorts of things she wants, but given that there are more "modern" type things around that don't even exist in our world, I'm curious if anyone has any suggestions on toys or necessities that a young child might want or need that they may not even be aware of. We don't want to give her culture shock, but we don't want her lacking or not getting to experience things that might be good or fun for her.

EXANDRIANS
It was discussed briefly little while ago that Vox Machina needed to have a conversation about timelines and where we all fall on it. Some of us have had changes since we first arrived here, which makes it hard to navigate. But since I know that the odd different timeline stuff goes beyond our immediate party, I figured it might be good to widen the conversation to our other Tal'Dorei and Wildemount friends. We live on different continents and lead different lives and adventures, but we're all from Exandria, you know?

Obviously this could be pretty personal information so don't feel like you have to contribute if you don't want to. The thought was that it might alleviate some confusion on who knows what in regards to events back home, but I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable either.

So, anyway. Hello. I'm pretty sure I've met you all in one way or another, but if not, hello. Again. I'm Vax'ildan. You can call me Vax, but don't call me Vex, because that's my sister. Cut if you're worried about C1 spoilers? )

For the record, Sydney, I have come to understand your warning about spending time at the shelter and the desire for bringing someone home. It was a very close thing this morning that was stopped only by the knowledge that I have many roommates that I'm at least attempting to be considerate of and we already have several companions about, fey and otherwise.

It will not stop me from volunteering, of course, but I might have to work on my willpower.

Not to add to the flow of confusing thoughts out there, but to the person considering what classes they ought to be taking: Death in Perspective sounds pretty fucking cool, I am just saying. I really don't know what Star Trek is and only have the bare minimum grasp of the concept of physics, but Death in Perspective. Do take this with a grain of salt as the only reason I got through my schooling was because my sister did most of my homework for me, as I was far too busy learning how to throw knives and hating my father as all angst ridden teens are, so I am not someone to give advice about higher education. But, you know, there's some unsolicited advice from someone apparently loosely affiliated with the goddess of death for you anyway.

Also, everything about your significant others is going to rot my teeth. It's very sweet.

PIKE
How are you doing, Pickle?
