I've watched the video. Explosions were cool but the soundtrack could use some work.

I guess it's a good thing that I'm used to weird.

Wow, this is completely fucked up (cool video though, appreciated the explosions) and I really did not pay much attention in Physics class in high school so alternate universes must have been covered on the day I skipped out to go to Waffle House and witnessed both a stabbing and a declaration of divorce. Though I did read a lot of comic books as a kid.

But, uh, hi. I'm Richie. I have a couple of questions.

1. How long does it take before the shock wears off and the panic sets in?
2. Does everyone come here from extremely bonkershits situations or is that just me?
3. What the fuck?

Thanks for your time.

My class ended early so I decided to take a walk while waiting for Adam and-- Um.

A blanket apology is due for anyone who had to interact with me yesterday; I'm not sure what happened, but I was in a terrible mood. No excuse for it, of course, but does it make it any more acceptable if I think that the general malaise was magical in origin?

Anyhow, it has been brought to my attention many times that I have a tendency to prattle on when I write, so in a bid to keep this brief and easily digestible for those among you who prefer aperitifs to feasts, today I've got a simple question for you to answer: What, in your life back home, was the stupidest, most embarrassing, most avoidable injury you have ever given yourself or received? Please note the words "stupidest" and "embarrassing" here as they will be doing the heavy lifting - I don't want to read thirty stories of thinly-disguised boasting about how effortlessly amazing you are, because after saving the orphans from the fire while being pursued by venomous bats (for example), you managed to bruise your shin. No, I specify stupid and embarrassing. This is a bid to make us all feel better for our bad moods yesterday by laughing at ourselves.

My story: my friends and I had found ourselves in the Blight, which is a flat, inhospitable desert with a wide variety of things that desperately wanted to kill us. As you likely know, I am a wizard. Unfortunately, magic was not functioning properly in the Blight and I was not able to defend myself magically, and so it was a nonstop stretch of my warrior and assassin friends saving me left and right while I stood about being useless. I was, to put it plainly, feeling rather sore about it. Eventually I hid a very wicked knife against my side in the event that I was grabbed for the nineteenth time by someone murderous and needed to defend myself. Unfortunately, that was when we were attacked by a sand Kraken (I didn't know they existed, either) and it picked me up, gave me a squeeze, and tossed me over what felt like half the desert but was probably only thirty feet. Both the squeeze and my landing ensured that my expertly-hidden knife sliced between my ribs, punctured my lung, and very nearly killed me. It would not have been, comparatively speaking, a very sexy way to go.

Your turn. I know we've got bards here; make it entertaining.

Oh what a feast for the eyes! This world is just FILLED with glorious things and such kind and caring people. Thank you, to those that escorted me from that lovely forest and thank you to those that taught me how to use this and were EVER so patient with my many many questions. Is it true it can connect to everyone, as instantly as talking to one's face? There is no need for glorious paper and spilled ink?

I am terribly rude and Marilla would have my head for it, I am so, so, sincerely sorry, please accept my humble apologies from the bottom of my heart for not making proper introductions right off the bat. I'm Anne, I was supposed to be starting at Queen's University soon but surely it's more important to explore than it is to worry about my education at a time like this. Adventure IS education and a glorious, much-needed distraction! I can't very well get in trouble when there is no way home, now can I?

Just how "dangerous" is this forest? I have quite the mind for direction and exploration and would like to go for a walk, but have no wish for people to need to rescue me if there are monsters and creatures lurking. What did you all do first when you arrived?

Enthusiastically,
Anne Shirley-Cuthbert

BROS. Have you thought to yourself, those hockey kids seem hella awesome! I bet they throw great parties!

Well good news, we are and we do.

SPECIFICALLY we throw AMAZING parties and since life has been fucking nuts, we're throwing one on Friday! A ~*~*~*~*~*~*~Spookegster~*~*~*~*~~*~*

(imagine that as fancy html because even though I was an art student I legit noped out of graphic design, your girl is 100000% sucky at it)

Spookegster will feature the following:

1. Epic beer pong tournaments, both single and doubles editions (but prepare to Throw Down, I am an actual beer pong god). We'll have pre-game warmups/tutorials don't worry.

2. Hallo'wheel O'Shots

3. Shitty Knight's infamous tomb/tub juice

4. WAY too many Office/Parks and Rec/Brooklyn 99 Halloween episode references

5. BITTY'S HALLOWEEN THEMED SNACKS caps lock v. much needed.

6. Other great things TBD but probably include witty costumes, chill times, friends, complicated handshakes, learning way too much about hockey, new inside jokes, would you rather questions, and more.

Q&A (thank you, Blue!)

--Are costumes required?

Costumes are not required but would be much appreciated. But it's Halloween so you do you.

--What's in tub juice?

Hard work, feminism, sex appeal, flow, and a bunch of other ingredients that Shitty keeps close to the chest.

tl;dr Friday at the Haus we're partying, you should too. Lardo, out. (Murderbro, it's just not as cool!!!!)

So the forest is now completely off-limits, I'm calling it. No one goes anywhere or do anything. There was no service while we were out there, and the spooky creepy hotel that I'm just finding out about now and that we were nowhere near decided to steal my boyfriends and spit them back out. I hate this

So we're looking at expanding the barn and building another one that's more fit for healing purposes, here at the Sanctuary! Ronan had a really good idea to host a fundraiser, and I've really liked everything about Halloween that I've heard from Sabrina and others. So for the 24th and 25th I'm having a Fundraiser at the Sanctuary!

During the day is going to be less scary and more family-friendly games and treats and crafts and things? And during the night there's going to be some spookier and scarier haunted things, like a maze and a haunted hiking path around our property. Oh and cocktails. :D

I could use some help? Volunteers to help me build stuff, set it up, work at it? If you want to help kids make crafts or scare people. OR if you just have a great idea for a game or something that can raise money, throw it at me!

Do you guys all use the term "boyfriend"? Is there another term TO use? Is "bae" appropriate? I've heard a lot.

This device is truly fascinating. To think you can type what you would like to say and it is instantaneously available for others to read. Though I will admit the keys are going to take some getting used to. As will the city here in general. I can't say I have ever seen buildings as large and grand as these.

I would like to extend my thanks to the DOA for helping me figure out how to work all of this. I was told that introductions are normally in order upon arrival. I am Gilbert Blythe.

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.

I needed to cle Early morning forest run and I end up with someone new following me around, this is becoming a habit??? But it's a good thing foxes aren't usually wolf prey! (I'm being careful with that, promise.)

Greetings. My name is Thurvishar D'Lorus. After performing a perfunctory sweep of names on your compiled list I am confident in saying that there is no one here from my world, but if I'm incorrect, I beg your forgiveness. I'm loathe to sum up myself but in short: I am a wizard, and High Lord to the Noble House of Binders - paper, histories, archives, mapmaking, records, you get the idea. In my spare time, I work as the advisor to Empress Tyentso (long may she reign) and get dragged into near-death political deathtraps by my friends whose enthusiasm for life often outpaces their capacity for common sense. This isn't my first alternate dimension, nor will it likely be my last, but I do have three questions here that I would greatly appreciate a response:
  • I wonder if there has been any study of how time moves in comparison to that of the homeworlds? This notion concerns me greatly, as we are on a-- we'll call it abbreviated -- schedule back home before, in short, total devastation and unending apocalypse strikes, and I would really very much like to avoid all of that, and:

  • Has anyone else had their magical abilities dampened? I am missing a power that was second nature back home, and it seems to be much weakened here, and finally:

  • I could use the spiciest curry on saag that Vallo could provide me with. Please, I implore you: blow my head off.
Thank you for any information you can provide.

On other matters back in my previous dimension I was part of a veteran's group. Did more or less what the 'Previously Dead' Club does, except geared towards people that have fought. If there's interest, could look into setting that up. Helped me a lot.

'Sup bros, I'm Larissa. Currently ISO the Samwell hockey team past and present: Jack and Bits are probably being cute together, my fave Haze-y Nursey, and Shitty, glorious hair and 'stache, actual fucking genius.

In the meanwhile, settle the Great Samwell Roadie Debate of 2015: would you rather find 1000 cockroaches or a stranger living in your attic?

Public - Cut for Images! )

We went camping this weekend, managing to surprise Blue at approximately 6am in the morning and not get stabbed for it, which I think says a lot about how lucky Henry and I are. There was adventure, early mornings, forgetting bug spray and having to slather ourselves in a strange natural remedy that stunk to high heaven, but there isn't anyone else I would've rather done it with. Henry and I are unfairly blessed with her and her fierce determination, unwavering loyalty and desire to make the world a better place.

Happy Birthday, Blue Sargent. Love you. (Henry said to tell you not to come "at" (that part was specifically important??) us for the collage of pictures. We couldn't decide so everyone gets to appreciate many.)

My little brother wants everyone to know that if you would like to join him in wearing a flower crown he would be happy to make you one. You can then join the kingdom of flowers.

The rules are, you must love dogs and flowers.

At least I'm pretty sure that's what he meant.
