Premise

Welcome to the Brightstar Reserve, nestled in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana. It's employees are responsible for a large and diverse group of beasts, beings, and plant life. Located across Hercinia Lake from the small, unincorporated municipality of Snowcap, the Reserve is far from the unrest in cities like New York, Salem, Chicago, and Monterey, just as everyone likes it.

However, just like the latest trends, politics and discord never seem to stay confined to the cities for long. Beings and those with cross-species lineage are pushing back against generations of regulations and even deeper entrenched suspicions. Leaving one to ask, what does it mean to be magical?

One reason I'm glad most healing based plants don't start growing season until March is that it buys me some more time to think about my second year project, and healing plants is definitely what I want to stick with as a specialty. I covered dittany last year, so now I think I'm going to try something that'd be part of an internally taken potion rather than a topical paste.

This post is brought to you on behalf of the fellow Roanoke grad who just wrote to me to ask when I was going to "see sense" and haul myself back to Charleston for "something that would really suit me."

...you make one post about thestrals on Wizgram, and a few days later one goes into labour having kept her distance for the last few weeks. It's early on and way late in the season, so something's not right over here.

In other words, if you're qualified, help.

Yours truly now has one book of her deal complete!!! All drafted, edited and good to go to the publisher for a Christmas release.

The other two are around halfway done on draft one, yes, but this is my big achievement of the year and I think I've earned myself a break.

Your fingers have finger tips, but your toes don’t have toe tips. Yet you can tip toe, but not tip finger…

I read this this morning and it's messed with my head all day. FFS!
