Adam and Belle have some really good wine in their wine cellar. We should buy a lot of it from their supplier.

Good morning!

I am feeling much better and I want to say thank you to Mr Torrance and Mr Dean for helping me when I arrived.

My brother said I was allowed to write for that and about my education because he says it is important I have some say in it.

We are looking for a lady who teaches needlework and if it would help then she could keep all the things that I make when I'm learning. My last governess who stayed said I was very good at it. We are also looking for someone to teach Scripture. We are Pretannic High Church but my brother says nobody else here is and he will be happy with any sensible Christian.

I have met some wonderful people here already and I like your farm very much.

I have considered a few facts, namely that my dear wife is not here to organise my calendar, there is not a great deal to do here beyond seeing to my nephew's education, and it seems an altogether upside-down place anyway. As a result I should like to announce that young Sirius and I will be at home to visitors every Wednesday.

Has anyone with magical knowledge investigated these doorways that seem to appear here, and tried to chart and predict them? I do recall a rather misadventurous outing to France when I was a boy, but I am told they are at least partly regular. I wonder if they are marked by any magical disturbance.

Good morning,

Katarin Tavehi and I have created a space for study in your bookshop or library or whatever you care to call the large space with all the books that are actually in Pretannic our language and not an alien one. Anyone is welcome to use it, but please do not touch any of the new maps or overlays, or any counters you see placed on them. I have drawn a map of my own country and am overlaying it with one of this place called Britain, as I determine what the place-names in the books here mean. I am drawing a map of Katarin Tavehi's country which I understand she is using in her study of military strategy. The maps do take up a fair proportion of the space, but we have brought in other desks should anyone else wish to work there. I am much better at caricatures than maps, but the latter seem more useful here.

If I may turn to another matter, on my very first day here, I am sure that I caught sight of a gentleman riding a horse. I cannot recollect who it might have been, but perhaps one of you would tell me if there are horses here that anyone might ride?

Who just eats a taco like that??


I think it's red wine o'clock.

How do you know if someone is real or a Polyjuice Man?

Well, thank goodness that is behind me. Although, I did wonder if I might make it to a full calendar month this time around.

Do you need to remove this implant again, or make any adjustments?

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.

It's all my own fault, really. I did insist on going on and on about the strange happenings on the station. I was tempting fate, and how fate laughs at me now.

[Backdated to a few days after portal opening]

Now that there are reports of an epidemic I hope people here will better understand why I do not drink the water. The cholera is a very unpleasant way to die.

I write, however, to ask for the advice of those who have lived here much longer than I. I understand that there is a doorway through which I can reach Paris. If I did this, and I took passage to Britain, and went to my parents, would I be able to stay there? I could not tell them who I am, because in 1832 I was not yet born, but I know enough to pass myself off as some distant cousin.

If I did all this, would I be left in peace, or would the doorway cruelly pull me back when it closes?


After consideration I would like to ask if anyone would make the journey with me. I will pay for the cost of your travel, and for your time and inconvenience should you wish it. It is necessary that you are a fellow who possesses magical ability of some sort, and both knowledge of the customs and etiquette of Britain at this time, and a willingness to follow them. Please do write if you are willing. - A.C. Black

Hello. Would anyone like a cruller?

Aug. 13th, 2021


Good evening.

I appear to be resident here once again. I recall that it is customary to announce your presence to the whole class.

Consider that done.

Year, please.

i am bored. despite all the excitement this is a dull place. so I propose a tournament. let us test our skills in duels of the sword. no supernatural abilities are allowed only skill. if you cannot fight without them and still wish to fight you can have a league of your own. Ww can hold two separate tournaments.

i would also like to thank my sister astrid who will so gracefully volunteer to provide the catering. she is not aware of this just yet. i would welcome suggestions for a price too. i have little things of value.

who is brave enough to answer my challenge.

Tomorrow would have been my wedding anniversary. Does this place ever get easier?

It was one year ago today that I fell out of 1813, and into the lake here. Ashley rescued
