I lost the credit cards.

Jun. 1st, 2013



I suppose I'm back.

May. 25th, 2013



[It's begun slowly. After three glasses of wine and some testing at the edge of a page. The brush work is slow at first. Tentative. Paint layered over paint - why here? No canvas in the house, no paper. Within three hours, close to four, the painting is amber and carmine, thick crimson and scarlet. It is slow, slow and then the wine or memory kicks in and it builds. Oil on paper.]

[As John S.]

The dreams are one thing. Now I'm sleep walking. Or something.

Apr. 1st, 2013


I am officially moved out of my studio. The place was shit anyway. I now call Chay's RV home. It's sweet. My guitars and clothes are here. It's all I need. Even my Facebook status says 'In a relationship'. Holy shit.


Oh, and I do love Cancun. I highly recommend it. Parasailing is hot. I'm even tan.

Mar. 30th, 2013



Rough draft done and sent off to my editor.

I dare say, I think this is one of the best manuscripts that I've written.

[Chessie M, Daniel W]

[Taken to Chessie M]
[From Selina's stash of homeless cats, a very small kitten, and a not so small cat. They are both accompanied by sheets of construction papers, tied with a ribbon and tucked beneath the handles of their crates, bearing tiny drawings that look nothing like the cats in question. Included with the construction paper are instructions, obviously dictated by a child: 1) I like cookies. 2) I kiss on toes. 3) I don't like the dog. 4) I eat toilet paper, etc., for each. ]

Three pm, an entirely sensible hour; door still open from the movers and the windows wide )


Are you supposed to tip people who move things, in this country? I offered jasmine tea but I do not think that was sufficient.


She said they were not stolen.


Once you are back, from New York and your boy, perhaps I could do something, for you and for your Luke and Jack - I could cook? I don't promise to be very good at it, but it could be something. Something no one is worried over.

Daniel W

[After this]

Did you try sending me a piano, Daniel?

Mar. 16th, 2013


For Chessie M

For M'lady Goldberry Chessie.. A delivery truck arrives and only a simple note is attached to the crate, along with a phone number for a gentleman specializing in piano restorations.

Nobody should be without music for very long. Jonathan has completed the tuneup and said that if you find a song in her he would continue the restoration of her. He has my billing information. He said that he is also willing to see if he can repair yours.

A contributor.

It turns out time travelers, they are not so fond of pianos as I am.

[Wren H]

Are you upset? You were upset.

[Daniel W]

Was this time better than last time? Or worse?

[Later] [Sunny]

Thank you for the box. It was important, I think. I remember thinking, at the time, anyway. Are you all right, now we're all back?

[Edited to add]


Are you all right? Wren said she didn't know.

[Luke H, Chessie M, Dick G]

[Locked to Luke H]
[During this.] I told Cerise she could come stay at the Manor if she needed to. I don't know if she will, but I didn't want you wondering why she was there. Is that okay?

[Locked to Chessie M]
Chessie? Are you okay?

[Locked to Dick Grayson]

[As "John S."]

I miss my friends, my job, my hospital. My good dreams.

When do I get back what is mine?

Feb. 19th, 2013


Well this is an interesting turn of events. I haven't been here in oh, decades.

Oh yes, I could work with this.

[Public, Olivia L.]

[Olivia L.]

[A reply to this. It's always pretty obvious in his writing when Daniel is too drunk to stand.]

Present. For good service.

[(Accidentally) Public.]

[After seeing this a bit too late. He hasn't left the apartment, and so the gifts are on the front step.]

[Nice drunken scrawl. The beginning of other letters that were originally supposed to be a lock: Ches]

It's March?


Happy Friday, I hope everyone had a productive Valentine's day, and that you don't beat me to the store for the half price candy today. Did everyone get lucky at least? Even if it was break up sex/hate sex/make up sex/make a baby sex/cheating sex etc etc etc...I hope everyone had some of it.

I know not everyone can access the internet from their journals, and some of you are in space, and some of you are in dinosaur times but for those of you who get a chance - Straight people.



You do not like Mardis Gras, Daniel?

[Wren M]

I hope you did not have a hangover for St Valentine, Wren! Lin - do you know Lin? - he told me of a place with such good food, I had one but it went. Your friends, your Luke, they are nice people, I think.

Left on Daniel's doorknob


Mardis Gras in this city. I think we both need joy, no? Come with me. [A scribbled phone number and an address of a not upscale but not totally skeevy bar]


What is the best bar in this town for Mardis Gras? Recommendations for the best Fat Tuesday Vegas has, please!


[Public, but filtered away from Lin A.]

Everyone is officially insane. I give up.
If anyone needs me, I will be marrying a bottle of Johnnie Walker.

[Selina Kyle]

She let me through the Door, you know. I didn't think after she'd spoken to that little blond of yours that she would.

[The Doctor]

So you've gone and done it [nothing]


Has anyone tried hosting a gathering that wasn't in a hotel? From all accounts, we drive you all potty, has anyone thought perhaps taking us out for a nice dinner or a party might dissuade us from doing so?
