Well, now that the D&D game has saved this world, I can make my own proper introduction here. I'm Nancy Wheeler. The ones who played the D&D game are my brother and his friends.

We come from the 80s and so this being a 2022 is a bit of a shock, especially because a lot of theories on what we would have invented by the year 2000 seemed to have not panned out at all. (I'd say The Jetsons had it wrong but I think they take place in the 2060s so there is still time.) I also never thought I'd be seeing the year 2022 while still a teenager but I guess stranger things have happened.

What I do see and do appreciate is that there seems to be less sexism in this world which is always a plus for someone who tried to get a journaling job in her town and was just treated like the secretary fetching coffee for The Men. So, if there is any kind of journalism job that exists here, I'd love to talk to whoever is responsible for hiring. Also, maybe look into the colleges in this area.

Ideally, I'd really like a trip back to where I came from because there's a lot left I need to do but already learned that's not really a choice. So might as well do something here.

Let me preface this by saying I mean no disrespect to anyone, but I've been sitting on this for several days and feel I need to say something. At first I thought maybe it was a dream, but it wasn't.

Last week I was drawn to the glacier that has shown up here in Vallo. I'm not sure why, but it called me almost like a siren song that I couldn't resist. What I saw in that ice is something I won't forget, something I wish to never see again.

It occured to me that I hadn't introduced myself on the network yet despite being here a month or so. That was by design - I'd dismissed it as your typical social media time-sink - and while that opinion hasn't changed, I do enjoy a time-sink when it's interesting. And Vallo keeps proving to be interesting, in diversity if nothing else.

And so - Callum Nova. I doubt there's anyone skulking about from my world, but if there is, 'Nova' is familiar because of Nova Industries, the media conglomerate. Illusions are my family's trade; a love of bright, glittering, beautiful, ephemeral veneer - it's common everywhere. Why wouldn't it be? As of late I'd been in an - internship, we'll go with internship - with aspirations of being hired but honestly, fuck the library; fuck all libraries, even yours, especially yours, because why not? If it's not attached to the library I knew, it likely will be in time, because if there's one thing that the Alexandrian Society is good at it's seeping into new cracks like a mold. They'll not be keen on my talking about it (how dare I speak the name of the Society at all!) but they're a dull lot with their furtive little plots, and what will they do in retaliation? Conspire to kill me more? I hope they try; Vallo's entertaining enough at present but I simply can't cope in a world that's so well-intentioned.

At any rate: Demonikea. They use this muddy, hideous typeface that I won't attempt here. They sell furniture. I am, occasionally, there, and even more occasionally I'm working there. If you're amusing I'll give you my discount. Don't sign the receipts they hand you. I don't know what they'll do with your signature but rest assured it's nothing good.

So, Wanda and I are getting married this weekend. She's been working on catering the whole thing (including baking the cake) because my diet is very weird these days. But I wanted to give a snippet into what it looks like, catering your own wedding reception:

cut for pics )

The last one was right when something literally crawled away from her and the second to last is my new phone background, mostly because it was accompanied by "get the fuck away from me, Stephen."

(Yes, I'm helping and not just being a snarky asshole taking pictures.)

[filtered to friends & family]

We'll see you Saturday on the mountain around sunset, just meet at the base and transportation up will be provided unless you want to climb a mountain for some reason. Plus ones all invited, you can bring multiple plus ones if you want. I'll be working some magical physics to allow for enough space and then just walk through the portal(s) back to the Sanctum for a party once we nervously say vows and probably cry. Cloak will conveniently be a hankie for me, and I'm grateful for that.

So Vallo, would you be open to an open relationship with your partner(s), lover, girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife, etc? If you're already in one feel free to share your thoughts on being in one.

I learned how to take a picture as they say. I think we've done a good job with Castle Fancy. Tried to convince Steve to go look for flowers and stones to add but he says we're too filthy for that.

Stephen & Melody
WHAT: River-Mel drops by to talk about Stephen's weird food diet change situation, and maybe offer some assistance
WHERE: The Sanctum
WHEN: Today, I think
WARNINGS: THEMATIC ELEMENTS - j/k, there's nothing
STATUS: Complete

I assume you’re hoping to look into my particular resistance, whether or not it's specific to my world? Or I guess it would be River's world.

Mel might have been more open than River, but she still felt what River felt, the anger, the hatred, and yes, the pain.

Who: Melody Williams & Edwin Courcey
What: Mel finally gets around to checking out the library.
When: Late last month?
Warnings: Brief mentions of murder and imprisonment.

The Library had been an early recommendation for sights to see upon finding oneself in Vallo, but there had been other things on Melody's mind these last weeks. )

The welcome video was quite catchy. Your minstrels here upon the island are certainly not lacking in enthusiasm! I hope all the artisans in this land are just as spirited. Having spent a few days in the city to get my bearings, I am eager to see the sights on display in that video. Ekera, the coastline and the beach particularly. I say, what other wonders might a new pair of eyes love to see?

My name is Tekēhu, and I come from an archipelago called the Deadfire. The stranger wonders of this place are very unlike my home, I say. Just so, I am glad the tide has brought me to this different shore.

I know you were a friend to River, and I trust you because I believe she did.

You said you help people sleep.

I assume you know she had nightmares. Nightmares which I now have.

These past few days have made me realise I can't ignore who I was, not even in favour of who I thought I was or who I wish I could still be.

I'm not as great at the speeches as Steve was even if we have the same name (and don't call me Steve, by the way) - he just had a knack for it. Despite that, I'll do my best.

Sometimes this place sucks but, you know, the pasta's top notch. And blahblahblah, hang tight to the ones you care about.

That's it. That's the speech.

On another note, I think I've mentioned I do medical research here in addition to some GP clinic work since brain surgery's no longer an option for me. One subsection of that research I'm hoping to focus on is what changes occur with exposure to or bonding with, say, a magical rock or other magical items. And what benefits that may bring, how that can potentially be incorporated into or extended to different treatments. We have some ties to the infinity stones here (including myself) but I know we also have other people who have bonded with magical rocks and things - if you are willing and wouldn't mind coming in to see me, I'd be interested in asking questions and maybe taking a blood sample if possible. No pressure either way, but being transparent about research is important so that's what I've been working on. Clearly I should stick to medical research and not speeches.

Well, that was the second worst ten-day span of my life, thank you very much. The cats were certainly happy to see me again, so at least there's that (my thanks to to those who were able to care for them in my absence).

This whole experience has done nothing do much as make me even more curious of the magic in this place. I'd like to conduct interviews with anyone willing to discuss their magic with me; I've the most interest in magic regarding leylines or foresight, though I'm happy enough to talk any other sorts as well.

IDK if this has been figured out already or not, but are we all experiencing the same rooms? But in different order?

Cause if we are watch out for the library. Some of the books will try to kill you.

And the room with the broken ballista has a creature that's going to try and kill you.

I think I saw someone mention jello? And an orb? That's at least four different rooms, right?

What else do we have to look forward to?

And has anyone found crystals? I told Lance that we'd found a paper saying we should keep an eye out for them, but its been a crazy five days.
