A few items of note:
  • The lighthouse that appeared on the edge of the forest overlooking the sea has been properly secured. If, through some opportunity of Vallo magic you are able to access it, the interior is host to powerful time magic. While exposure to it isn't harmful, it will cause time to pass within the lighthouse that isn't reflected outside of it. I advise you to avoid unless you're accompanied by a witch or wizard experienced with pocket universes and/or time magic.
  • To the Thieves guild - you know who you are - I invite you to dinner and a game next week. Thursday, perhaps? How do you do with spicy? I'll make two versions of the pad see mao if you prefer a kinder dish.
  • I seem to have borrowed a book from someone and I can't remember who it belongs to - "Voyages with Vampires"? Written by a Gilderoy Lockhart? I found it rather florid for my taste but to each his own.

That is all.

A little over two weeks left until I say goodbye to sweet 16. I never actually got around to learning to drive for a variety of reasons. I should probably do that. But on that note, anything else I should do before this iconic age is gone and I enter ABBA territory?

PSYCHIC/SEERS
Hi there. I think I've spoken to at least a few of you at this point. I'm a seer. I take specialized classes at school, but I want to do more to explore these powers. The classes work at a slower pace than I'd like. Does anyone have suggestions for practices for relative beginners?

Just plugging Wicked, because it's amazing and everyone should come see it on opening night. Or the next day. Or the day after that. Or whenever, really, until it runs out.

Also I sound like I'm pregnant but - hot dog in a fried pickle with peanut butter. Who wants to brave this new thing with me?

[ Filtered to Friends + Department Leads + Magic Users ]

This is just a quick note to let you know that I haven't died alone in my library covered in books - I have an office now in which to do that. In recent weeks, I accepted the position of Magical Research Lead for the Department of Outlander Affairs. The previous person in this position had a number of notes I have been working through, and now that I have a decent notion of where we are, I can start planning for how I'd like us to be. Already I see several opportunities to apply the many talents and skills that we have at our disposal here at Vallo to hopefully make life more comfortable, and to offer support for those new arrivals who might add to our knowledge of Vallo's workings through their own magical talent.

I've not abandoned my current project - magical fluctuation in alternate universes - nor will I quit any existing side-projects I have agreed to. I thank you for your patience as I continue to come up to speed, and if I may assist in something with regard to magical research, please don't hesitate to reach out.

(*if you're someone that can see the future, this filter is for you!)
I'm reaching out to you all in an attempt to start combining our efforts for the future (the pun was not intended). Roz and I got to talking at Nino's the other day and I realized that all of our talents are different but putting together what we see could give us an advantage against something like what happened with the snowglobe. Maybe we can meet once a week to touch base because as we know nothing we see is too small or insignificant. I know some of us already work in tandem, and there is a chance we will all see the same thing in one way or another, but it can't hurt.

Hey, Vallo Prime and Vallo Dark - everybody should be able to see this on network-connected devices.

Thanks, whoever you folks who helped stabilize the connection on the Vallo Prime end are. I'm Dr. Morgan Yu, and I'm about to go full typhon because that shit was exhausting. Vallo Dark-area psychics, don't freak if you sense a weird white noise; my thoughts are always like that, but they tend to get a little louder when I'm not holding a human form.

While I'm napping, see what you can do about getting us all out of this foggy hellhole.

Something is going and something is coming

There's danger


here and not here


What's lost is found if you look closely


I think I need help deciphering a vision. It's very [...] foggy. Almost too hard to see. But I might be able to with help.

There's a lovely apple tree up on the rooftop gardens at the apartments! I'm up there just about every other day, so I know it's new--and it's fully grown! Of course, someone could have planted a sapling and used magic to grow it so quickly, in which case I'm very jealous because there are quite a few flowers I'd like to speed up so I can see them in bloom. But the waiting is nice as well, and I like a surprise every now and then.

It's quite a sweet tree and such a bright addition! I may prune it back a bit so it has a better chance in spring, but if it's helped with magic, I suppose that may not be much of an issue.

And if you're walking the Skyhold gardens, please be careful! I think I have all of the plants cataloged with what they are, but there are still a few I'm not certain of, and certainly a few that don't enjoy being touched at all and will respond rather harshly.

It's not too late to protect your plants and gardens from snow and ice! A light dusting of snow won't do anything, but young, small plants can't hold the weight of much more than an inch of snow.

I like to spread a blend of bark chips, moss, straw, and leaves around the base of the plant as insulation--but not too high, because the stem will still need to receive moisture. In order to keep the top of your plants safe, you can use a cardboard box to cover them (removing it as soon as possible so they get light!) or a tarp weighed down at the ends. It's also a good idea to check out any young trees, especially if they lean heavily to one side naturally. Consider tying it to a nearby tree, so that the weight of the snow and ice don't cause the tree to snap. If it's safe, I think it's always a good idea to go out and shake snow and ice off of branches, so that you don't have a larger mess to deal with later.

Plant care is a year round job! And work in the winter results in a very flowering and fruitful spring and summer! (I couldn't help that, I'm so sorry!)

If anyone who is acquainted with the customs of "Christianity" can illuminate the following matter I would be most grateful:

A few weeks ago I set out to familiarize myself with the various winter celebrations that are marked here, such as Yule, the Solstice, and the New Year. Christmas, a holiday of "Christianity" (who could have guessed) was one of these. I've made peace with the red-clad trespasser who stalks children (although I can't find anything more than a tenuous link to the central religious conceit of the holiday), but what's actually confusing me are the texts that tell the story of a god child who is the product of - this is where I'm lost - a virgin birth.

????? That's -- most unusual! And rather frightening, at least in my world. Magic that can produce a child out of nothing is--- VERY VERY BAD not tasteful. Do your gods not have interest in sexual intercourse? Because ours would likely flirt with a street lamp if the street lamp seemed into it. I know. I have been that street lamp, metaphorically speaking. I was not into it.

Anywho. I'm certain the virginity of the god child's mother was just a-- phrase mistranslation, right? And not a-- central tenet to the religion as it appears to be? Right? Because surely an influential religion can't have such an obsession with the notion of purity that it creates an impossible standard to live up to and never mind, I've answered my own question and am now deeply depressed, help.

You've never seen a smug ghost until the spectral form of your sister shows up in your room in the early waking hours, waiting a few moments before saying anything. I would have rather been followed around by the dead asshole that made me fae.

Elain, please come distract. Because if this persists, I will find a way to turn her into dust, and maybe seeing you will get her to stop crowing like the beast she is.

Then I'll sell my services for any of you that are plagued by your own haunted apparitions.

There are some really beautifully colored leaves on the ground! I've noticed some people are bagging them up? Which is fine, of course, but actually, the leaves are really good for plants! If they're shredded and left on the ground, worms will come and eat them, and a healthy garden has plenty of worms! Or you can use them to keep perennial bulbs and root vegetables warm during the winter. I liked to have a pile, and then in the spring when the leaves had decomposed, I would use them as food for the soil. A happy ground is a happy garden!

Which is a very silly statement and I can't really believe I've said that.

There's a house. No, larger.

A manor?



It's full of nightmares.

Two unrelated items of note:
  • While previously I possessed a dim view of coffee, I decided to give one of your seasonal offerings a try, and I can now apologize profusely for my dismissal of all such beverages: pumpkin spice lattes are perfect. Simply perfect. We've nothing truly like it in Quur, save a cinnamon tea that's not nearly so comforting or sweet. If one of you entrepreneurial sorts wants to offer it up year round, I will consistently skulk within your shop.

  • Secondly, I awoke this morning very literally covered in books. It appears that a portion of my library from back home has found its way to me here in Vallo. I recently acquired even more tomes due to the untimely death of an ally/friend/mentor/traitor/wizard/drunk, but I had not had a chance back home to go through the sheer volume of texts. Should anyone wish to make me their personal lending library, the books are wide in subject and varied, including:
    • Fictional tales of the God Kings: Their Lives and Extremely Messy Deaths
    • A History of Notable Witches (this one was banned, and if you damage it, I will destroy you)
    • A discussion of hand-to-hand fighting techniques (common in the Blight)
    • a Vane epic tale that seems to be less about immortal heroes and their adventures and more of a who-slept-with-who-and-details-on-the-how (not mine, don't know where it came from),
    • my tenth year report on the Royal Houses of Quur that very nearly got me expelled (I stand by every word),
    • Poison Plants of the Southern Empire,
    • Gender Politics and the Horsemen of Jorat (for those of you interested in what it means to 'run with the herd', sexually) and
    • my father's book on soul magic, which I will only lend once I am convinced that you're of a sufficient moral character to be trusted with its contents.
Should anyone be interested. And/or kind enough to dig me out of this mess. Literally. I am still buried in books. They're... everywhere.

So the not dragons have their island, which is great. Still kind of glad none of them did fire, because while I love High Dragons I don't like their fire.

On other matters who is good with plants? I have learned I am not, because I keep cursing at the ones I planted in Skyhold's gardens because the shits won't grow. I'm wondering if it's a soil thing (because they're not native), or a Hawke thing (because I lack patience).

Second other matter, usually we run card nights whenever we want but would people want to make that a regular thing, kind of like the karaoke thing that happens? I figure that as long as people are willing to teach their world's card games we can have it open for any of them. We bet among ourselves but we could also make that a regular thing, or have just for fun games every so often. Maybe we could hold competitions like the Fighting Club, and we could designate a portion of the pot to maybe the clinic and Atreus' Sanctuary.

Hey y'all! I know a lot of you have been asking if there is a way you can repay me for pies, which is just silly. I'm always going to make a welcome treat for new people because there is nothing better than something homecooked to get you through this very weird time!

But now that I'm working with Alexis Rose—publicity guru, entrepreneur, style icon, and just an all-around ultimate sweetheart—I thought I'd let you know that y'all can get specialty things from Rose Apothecary each month so that my apartment's oven doesn't get lonely and so that I don't have to think about. I'm thinking I might change it up depending on what's in season, but for now I've been testing a few things for Vallo that I think y'all are going to love. ♥ ♥

P.S. Does anyone play hockey?

There's someone who keeps changing their mind on whether or not to ask a specific someone to the ball: you should. It will work out well, but only if you do it soon. Otherwise, they'll think they were a last minute thought.

Please don't wear that. Let me help you.

A.Z. Fell & Co Antiquarian and Unusual Books is under new management. And by 'new', I mean to say original. Though I don't recall being here before, I'm comforted that my shop was here to greet me. We will be closed until further notice. Need to a spot of reorganizing. I'd also like to familiarize myself with my surroundings.

It's a pity I missed the Pride festivities. I've always enjoyed the ones held in Soho.
