Since everyone's been focusing on the upcoming holiday, I thought I'd regale you with a tale of love from my home! I'm no bard, alas, and I'm no good with any songs that don't qualify as "drinking songs", but I can tell a good story!

A Tale of Love and Woe from Lordran )

I hope I didn't depress anyone. That story always made me cry when Lautrec told it; spiky bastard.

I was going to write this as advice for those trapped with me here in Needs Work Frankly Vallo, but now that communications has been established, everyone can see it! Gosh, it's a little unnerving.

So Your Beloved Home Has Gone Dark and Ashy and Awful and Everything Wants to Kill You, Including Your Friends: A Primer
  • First, don't panic! Panicking does no one any good and only attracts monsters and bandits.
  • Secondly, assess your situation: are you in a safe area? If not, find one. Safe areas typically include a tidy little bonfire, friendly inhabitants, and a place to sharpen your blade. Unsafe areas include lava, trap-stuffed castles, poison swamps, dragon hoards, undead-filled towns, priests, and people who try to stab you.
  • How do you feel? Do you feel healthy, hale, and energetic? Or do you feel sluggish, foggy-brained, possibly cannibalistic? You might need to consider that you are changing to match your surroundings.
  • Do you have any healing items on you? If so, these are worth their weight in gold, but it's the apocalypse, so gold does fuck all. Nevertheless, healing items are very valuable! If you don't have any, try to find some, or barter for some, or get them off a corpse.
  • Determine what sentimental items you wish to carry to remind you of how things used to be, but ensure that they are lightweight. I have a special miracle caster given to me by a loved one before she passed that I always carry, along with a few rings. All these items are useful in addition to make me feel both happy and sad when I look at them too long.
  • Local animals may seem friendly, but approach them cautiously. Sometimes, they're cute because they want to eat you.
  • Feeling sad? Nostalgic for what you've lost? It's fine to have emotions about the past, but don't let it drag you down too deeply. Talk to your friends and colleagues about your feelings. They're your loved ones for a reason; I promise you don't annoy them by existing.
  • Feeling angry? That's perfectly understandable too! Try to use that aggression against monsters, not your friends and allies.
  • Feeling like a good roll in the hay? Also understandable! Everyone knows that funerals are the best places to pick up a date for the evening. Be respectful and courteous and if you're like me, take your shirt off a lot and things tend to work out for you, unless you're in a place where taking off your shirt isn't respectful and courteous, in which case don't do it you slug.
  • It's okay to take breaks! No one can be "on" all the time, and working yourself to exhaustion will only make it more depressing when you mess up and let your best friend get stepped on by a dragon. Hypothetically. (We worked it out.)
  • Do you want to blame someone? I understand the impulse, but it's not healthy or relevant while you're in danger. It's more important to make sure that you're safe and your friends are safe before you start blaming people, even bad people, for your current predicament. If you're religious, feel free to blame the gods. Chances are, they're totally responsible anyhow, and they don't tend to care when they're blamed because deep down, they know they're jerks. (Your experiences with gods may differ from mine.)
  • Finally, enjoy the little things. This apocalypse is your apocalypse, too! Tomorrow, you may get smashed in the head by a falling building and squished to unrecognizable paste. So give those compliments, tell your loved ones how special they are to you! They'll think of you more fondly if they should find your squishy corpse later.
I hope this was helpful! Please ask me any questions you might have, and I'll try to answer. Obviously most of this was from my own experience watching Lothric go to absolute shit, so not all experiences are universal experiences!

Holy Reece's Big Cup with Pretzels you guys!!! Tomorrow is our Christmas Eve market and it's going to be so flipping Goldfish Epic Crunch Ranch I can't even handle it! :)))))))))))))))

So FIRST we have like, AMAZING Christmas trees with honestly, the BEST decorations I can't even explain how great, except to compare it to the time I made a s'more and used S'more Oreos as the cookie base! They're beautiful! They're quirky! They're interesting! They're festive! They're funny! They're tranquil!

Not all at once lololololol that would be a LOT to put on one decoration!

Blue has made SUCH good fiber arts things, like, I want to buy them all already and display them and wear them all at the same time! And here's what's SO cool about Blue's stuff? Is that I think somehow, she puts a little bit of herself in them! So you're wearing like, the best hat (maybe it looks a little bit like pancakes and syrup! but fill in what you think is a great looking crocheted hat) and all of a sudden you're like, holy Cadbury creme eggs, I feel like I could trample the patriarchy! Which we all should feel all the time but you know! :)))))))))))))))))

And Ronan's cards this time?? YOU GUYS. They're like, ART. Which, you might be like lolololol duh Matthew, but I mean it!! You could send them to someone and that person would be filled with such warmth and love, which is amazing, but also you could frame them and hang them and feel that same way--or both!!!

Oh AND because I have no shame and it sounds SO FUN, if you're like, hey Matthew, when you're making deliveries could you show up in a Santa suit..................I will totally do that because much like Santa Claus, I too love Christmas, joy, and cookies and milk. Or you can say no and that's okay too!!

Some of the animals may be out, but they might be finicky--the goats like, CHARGED outside and ran in the snow for like, 10 seconds and then CHARGED back in, it was hilarious. But the alpacas love it!

Look here for animals! )

Okay, can't wait to see you!!!

So it's been very quiet the last few days! At first I thought it might be because of the weather, because some people don't much like the snow, but then I thought it had to be something else, because you're all too courageous to be slowed down by a little blizzard! While I was thinking about all this, and hoping that it wasn't the start of an apocalypse (I have a lot of experience with those!), I discovered a magical something called a vending machine. I can only assume it to be the gift from the gods, as I put coins into this vending machine and received pastries in return, so then I put all my money into this vending machine and now I have 28 cupcakes with white filling! I have consumed 14 of them. What will the rest of the evening hold? WHO KNOWS?

Anyhow, please drop me a line and let me know how you're doing, and if you need anything. I rather like snowy weather, even if sometimes the snow blots out the sun, and then I like it less, BUT I have cupcakes and am only too happy to share if you find yourself hungry and in need of company! We can engage in jolly cooperation! I can tell you stories, such as the time I was nearly eaten by a dragon, and maybe about my family, like my sister, who has snakes for legs! Just let me know!

Hello Vallo! Who needs saving? I ask because I was summoned here, and that's usually the way of things where I'm from! I've wandered about for the last few days looking for the giant monster, or perhaps the lovelorn prince in a dungeon, or maybe even a band of feisty outlaws on the wrong side of the law, but I'm afraid all I've found was delicious pie and a very nice soap (and Regina! Hello, Lady Regina! We're friends now, we came in on the same day, together!).

Anywho. I am Solaire of Astora. Until I find the one who summoned me, I've applied to join the DoA! It's quite like my old covenant, the Warriors of Sunlight, except no one's hollow and everyone is kind of shockingly attractive? It's going to be a real distraction in a fight. As for fighting - I LOVE FIGHTING. I'm particularly fond of sword and shield, and of course I have a few knickknacks which help give me a boost when I need one. OH and don't worry - I'm not hollow any more, so there's absolutely NO CHANCE that I'd ever turn on you and kill you and eat you, not even if we were lost together in the wilderness and there was no game to hunt, probably. So that's good news!

Should I write about myself? Hmm. My favorite color is green, I've died about 3,456 times (I think, a few of them I was unconscious for, so I never know whether they count or not??) and I always have a bit of purple moss on me in case anyone gets poisoned. I like long walks on the hydra-infested beach, lonely dates on top of dim castle towers, and absolutely destroying evil wherever it's found. And peppermint! Peppermint is grand.

But most of all? Oh, how I love your sun. It's lovely. I could stare at it for hours, but I won't, because someone caught me doing that earlier and said I'd go blind, so. I'll just think about it a lot I suppose.

[ ooc author's note - he's not affected by the emotions plot; this is just how... solaire is ]
