Bye-bye, snow. You won't be missed.

Apr. 25th, 2022


Well, this is great.

There is a new person here. She is a young girl. She says that she sees Dean, but Dean is alone right now. Can any one else help? Dean does not know what to do, but Dean wants to make sure she is safe.

I fear I must ask for the assistance of some kind soul here.

I am unwell. It is the old illness and I know very well how to manage it, but is there someone willing to receive a short message from me, every few hours, as proof that I am conscious?

It will only be until evening. Perhaps tomorrow if I am not recovered.

If you have children, what are their names?

If you don't have children, what would you name them if you did?

You can say why if you want, but you don't have to. I'm curious what people do in other places.

magic is cool.

I'm going to make maple taffy in the food court tomorrow (Friday) and again on Sunday. It's fun to do, everyone interested is welcome to join me. This includes children - I do ask that very young children have an adult or older child to supervise them.

Eleven days (counting today) until the snow is gone. In case anyone needs to know.

I don't know if I should complain about this or not, but my toddler likes to take naps just when she starts to get really fun to be around. She fell asleep while she was showing off how she could make animal noises but for the wrong animals. Bunnies roar, did you know bunnies roar? Adorable. But now she's napping and I have nothing else to entertain me. No, I don't sleep. So instead of causing trouble to keep myself busy I'm gonna open up some questions to all of you. Sounds fun, right?

Answer whatever you feel comfortable answering:
1) Do you have any phobias? What are they?
2) What is the weirdest place where you kissed?
3) Have you ever bribed someone?
4) What are you most likely to get arrested for?
5) Would you rather stay young forever and never meet the love of your life or grow old with the love of your life?
6) Pick one: Babies dressed as animals or animals dressed as humans?
7) Pick one: Owe money or owe a favor?
8) Pick one: Share food or don’t share food?
9) Pick one: Time machine or magic wand?
10) Pick one: Painful truth or comforting lie?

So... I'm stuck. Six months of trying and I just can't get a hang of shapeshifting. At least not the way my Dad does it. Which sucks. Is there any other shapeshifter out there who can give me some tips?

Muuuuum, help?

Hello everyone,

For those of you I haven't met, I'm Hannah Hale. I arrived here yesterday, and I've been told some very remarkable things about this place. It's utterly vast, and I think it would be very easy to get lost and never see anyone. I was told that this was an appropriate place to make introductions. I'm here with my seven children. It's just us. Their father died in the war. Most of them seem to like it here very much, not least because of the size of our living space!

I should also mention that if you have back trouble, or other persistent aches and pains, I'd be happy to treat them. I'm very good at it, and I can guarantee you will notice a difference.

Jan. 29th, 2022


Forgive me if this is too personal a question for such a public space, but: has anyone else experienced a change in their dreams after arriving here?

[Everyone is sent a link to this - it's web page style, more static than the regular network posts]

In the village of Privkat, before the dark times, the elders would teach the young people about magic. They learned how to shape it, and how to use it. By the time I arrived there, the practice had stopped. The magic we learnt was in secret, and was limited, and then there was none at all. I missed this part of learning. I see that there are many here with many types of magic.

This is what I propose. Once every seven days, on your Sunday for felicity, at [big open space on the station] we will gather and at least one among our number will tell the others about their magic. We will sit in a great circle and listen, as we would in Privkat.

Who is willing to take a turn? You do not have to be an elder, and it does not matter if nobody else here has the same talents that you do. You can demonstrate something practical and teach it to others who can learn, or you can tell us about the origins of your magic and how it works, or tell us about the history of your people and what magic has meant to them.

Everyone is welcome to join us and to listen, so long as they are respectful of others.

If you would like to speak more than once, and teach us different things, you can. If you would like a regular time to teach, you can have that. If you are interested, please tell me your name and each topic you would like to share with us, and I will organise the meetings accordingly.

I had a feeling this would happen. Younger me must have had the same feeling.

I think I'm going to have to quarantine myself.

The snow's about to get cold, isn't it?

Dec. 24th, 2021


There is no subtle way to put this. My daughter has been placed in a French jail. Now the Drengr in me wants to storm this jail, and break her out. But I'm willing to listen to reason and plans of others.

I apologise for the delay in posting, but as you can surely imagine, it has been a difficult time. However, I did want to offer an introduction to the world you will find through the door.

A few words of caution first.

Ladies, please do not go without an escort, or a weapon that you are not afraid to use.

There are many pickpockets about, so be wary and do not flaunt any wealth unless you seek trouble.

We are in the midst of a cholera epidemic. I believe there is now a vaccine, and effective treatment available. I will leave the medical staff to advise on this point, but do not drink the water through the door. It is contaminated. (Can we do anything about this without changing the course of history? Educate?)

I have spoken to a number of you about formulating a plan to help the people of Paris following the recent uprising, and I also want to offer my sincere thanks to those of you who have already offered, or are actively helping.

The building you first enter was a stronghold of the Revolution, and it is important that it is rebuilt as a symbol of resistance. The blood has been cleaned, and some volunteers are working on clearing the rubble. We need to replace the ceiling of the first floor. I would like to hire some locals to help with this, and pay them accordingly for their labour. Offering honest work is better than charity. Anyone willing to act as site foreman for this? I am happy to act as translator if it is the only issue.

When the people rise again, and they will, they will need better weapons. We cannot give them anything not yet invented, but we can help stockpile weapons and ammunition of the time that the common man cannot necessarily afford. They will also need field medical kits.

Hungry people have no fight in them. When we can reopen the Musain, can we find a way to feed people without it becoming a riot? I'm open to suggestions. On all these points.

I will be staying in Paris, but I will remain in contact. I can also find apartments for anyone else who wishes to stay.
