FRIENDS/FAMILY OF BILLY & TEDDY
Good morning!

Billy and I wanted to invite you all to the courthouse on July 27 at 4PM for a wedding. Our wedding, obviously. It's not our first by my memory, but it will be his, so we're making a bit of an event of it. And if you'd like to join for dinner on us afterward, we'll be doing so at Five Sails.

Billy has decreed we'll also be doing a Smash Bros tournament after the dinner at our place, if you want to join that, too. There will probably be after-dinner pizza.

Anyway, this isn't the most traditional of wedding invitations, but we're not the most traditional of guys. We hope to see you all there to celebrate with us!

I take back my earlier complaining. I should not be wearing this many layers in July, or so I have come to understand for Vallo's climate.

My orchids are also severely suffering.

All in all, this is a vexing and I would like to speak with Vallo's manager. (This is a joke, I have been here long enough to understand that Vallo is the manager.)

CALEB
The last time it snowed unseasonably, we coincidentally also eloped. Perhaps it is our duty to do it again, to stop this weather. We must be heroes.

Right so. The club entrance is currently filling up with bloody snow so either dig your way in or leave me to drink alone in peace. I'm still recovering from the damned heat. (Should we be worried about these extremes? Anyone hear anything about a weather curse or a witch or a lost cursed amulet that once belonged to a witch?)

I knew things could show up from home, but knowing and something suddenly appearing on your kitchen counter are two different things.

I think this is a sign that I need to help you cook dinner sometime.

In my time, I don't think I ever dealt with this much heat before though my understanding after communicating about it with several people over the past few days is that as the years/decades/centuries go by, it is normal for temperature to climb up to blistering degrees that is probably not safe for any of us who are used to wearing BLOODY CORSETS AND LONG DRESSES because heaven forbid society learn that women have ankles and knees.

But I cannot deal with this anymore even with wearing an adorable little sundress I bought last month.

I've had a spark of magic from my world before I showed up and I wish to learn it. Preferably ASAP. Preferably cooling spells on my own body or something. Also ASAP.

(That's probably not actually feasible, I'm just exaggerating to let it be known how miserable I am at the moment.)

With the heat, we're keeping a close eye on all of the animals here and making sure they're well hydrated and as comfortable as can be. :) Chickens can't sweat (I know, right?? I had no idea) and so to help keep them a little cooler and entertained I made them a cake.

And now, weird things I've eaten this week!

Snackin' ain't easy )

This is also your reminder to not overtax yourself physically, drink lots of water, and take breaks when you're spending a lot of time outside! :)))))))) And come visit us at the Enchanted Nook where it's super cool inside both temperature wise AND because we have amazing books and people who work there. :))))))

I need a baby translator because Gracie screams 'boobah', 'boobah', and 'boobah' which you would think would be the same word but fucking surprise it's three different pronunciations and she stares at me like I should know what each of them mean.

And yes, I have tried holding shit up when she says it to see what she reaches for. Fucking. Nothing.

This has been fucking Things No One Tells You When You Become a Parent so you're all damn welcome.

Chaos Crew minus Lila

Give me your best proposal ideas.

Also as my friends you have a responsibility to tell me if Lila's going to propose and try to interfere so I can do it first.

Yes I know how that fucking sounds, but this is one of our delightful quirks as a couple, shut up.

I don't wa L I was going to try and say something inspiration about people leaving, but I've got nothing even after a week. Sorry if you've also lost someone recently, not something I wish on anyone.

Hi. If you heard this from me, no you didn't.

But I need help with Andarna. She's fine - we're fine. We got attacked by one of those bulette monsters? I fried it and Tairn took care of the rest but we had to rush in because Andarna couldn't get away fast enough and she almost got seriously injured.

You've all been around her long enough now to know she's not as strong of a flier as others, and that's because we were bonded when she was too really young, and shit went sideways like it always does and her growth was messed up because of me a battle we went through and how much energy she used during it. So some of her wing muscles didn't grow in properly and she can fly but she can't hold weight on her and she can't take off quickly.

But dragons are stubborn as fuck and bringing it up just hurts her feelings or makes her more stubborn. Tairn and Sgaeyl work with her, and I try as much as she'll let me but it's a delicate topic she hates talking about. So I could use help with people who can fly to spend time with her in the air, help her build those muscles and adapt, without making it seem like it's exercise? People I can trust that'll keep an eye on her and also maybe not get me eaten.

And if you've got any other ideas I am OPEN to hearing them. She won't accept a healer to look at it.

I don't know how common bulettes are across worlds, but I am now two for two days in getting wrapped up in a fight with what I assume is one? I'd only heard and read stories about them back home, but both were massive (which I know might seem sketchy coming from me, but really), had big claws and a massive jaw, and really hurts when they get a hit in on you. Thank you to everyone I got to fight alongside, or I'd probably be.

Anyway, I don't know if it's just coincidence that it happened two days in a row or if they're going to be a thing, so just keep an eye out, I guess. As good of an eye as you can on a creature that burrows around underground and bursts out of nowhere on you.

Also, lost most of the groceries I was bringing back for dinner in the scuffle, so it might be a Taste of Tal'Dorei kind of night, people that live with me.

Hey guys! Long time no see!

So, real quick question, but Kamala didn't, you know, disappear in the last few months, did she? It's just that her house is empty and I'm kind of freaking out

Though I am looking forward partaking in some of the festivities this weekend as planned, it seems that much of my time will instead be spent parsing through what is propaganda for a government that masquerades as not a theocracy and what is actually not drivel, thanks to Vallo and our now mess of a library. Apparently hoping for one book was interpreted as every book by whoever it is that grants such things in this world.

It helps to know the look my mother's face would pull should she know that some of these books are being shelved alongside smut.

Anyway. Do be safe amongst the rainbows and libations.

And should you need a teleport, the rules are the same as next year: I will do so, as long as it is not after 1AM.
