Any chance anyone can spare some magic that might locate something? Something like a dagger?

Not that I'm irresponsible with my weapon care -- because I'm honestly not, those daggers are my children -- but uh. One is missing and I can't find it anywhere and since we have actual children about, I'm concerned so. Yeah. Magic? It was here last night, so it's got to be around here somewhere.

And, for the love of all the gods, please no one tell Diego.

It feels like cheating, because it was only August back home before I was brought here, but today is my birthday and I guess that means I am technically 17 now. Better that than turning 16 again, I suppose; a lot happened around my last birthday, what with my spring break revolving around our sophomore year project that included adventures on a floating pirate ship island, being kidnapped by my own people, trying alcohol for the first time, and family dramatics, to put it incredibly lightly, so... a do over is welcome. I just wish

And I think my do over requires cake! I wasn't allowed Give me your best bakery recommendations, if you have them. I would make one myself, but I'm not that adventurous.

On the one hand, avian attacks of all sorts -- I am including the dinosaurs in this number -- really do get in the way of my syllabus that I took great strides in creating all summer by having school closed for days at a time. (Note that I know this is for the best as the safety of students come first, obviously.)

On the other, I am going into this weekend with no grading or reading of essays on my plate as I finished it all to keep busy the last few days.

Whatever is one meant to do with such an excess of free time?

I know it is still a bit early, so I hope I am not interrupting your morning. However, Wei Wuxian and I were going to be meeting for breakfast, but he hasn't yet arrived. I have been waiting long enough that I am growing concerned, especially with what others were mentioning about the dangers in the forest being especially high in the last few days.

Would you be able to go and check on him, perhaps out in the Burial Mounds? I am worried for him.

XHORHAUS + OTHER FRIENDS*
For those of you that aren't aware, I applied for a job at a youth center in the city a couple weeks back, had a couple of interviews, and this morning was offered the position. I accepted it, though I'm still in vague shock as I was definitely not expecting to actually get to this point but I don't start until the beginning of next month so hopefully it will all sink in sometime before then. I've never had a real job before that didn't require me to use daggers to complete my duties so it's a shift.

Anyway -- shock or not, I'm not one to pass up a chance to celebrate something and it's always more fun to celebrate with friends. I know it's last minute so no hard feelings if you already have your dance cards full for a Friday, but I feel as though drinks are in order, at least. Quills, tonight? Perhaps not a proper pub crawl, but we'll see where the night takes us? We can sort out a babysitter for the girls, maybe? Another question here, just for the hell of it?

I wanted to give an overall thank you to everyone who helped me when I arrived here a few days ago. I was able to get much of what I needed, but most importantly I was able to summon Boggy here: Frog pic, if you're worried about that! )

Everything is a little bit better with Boggy around, so I'm relieved.

I'm also relieved to be going back to school next week; thank you again, Mr. Widogast, for the aid in arranging a meeting. I don't do well sitting idle for too long, so it will be good to have something of a routine and to have homework again. It had been summer break back home, so it's a bit odd to jump back into school, but you won't necessarily find me complaining.

Vaguely concerned as to what including "fuck you vax" in a search might have brought up on the internet.

I had every good intention to not read those lists, should they have come up again today, but my sudden paranoia and/or lack of memory on just what I've been searching the last several weeks got in the way. So, I will say to whoever was wondering how elves govern, the answer, in my own very personal experience, is "inefficiently" and "with a heavy dose of religious fanaticism nepotism" thanks to incredibly long lifespans.

I recognize that my culture is unique and I may just have a bias, but alas. Don't we all.

Though, I must ask: is cupcake delivery a true possibility? I could use one or six.

Any chances this was a one time fluke or do I have to worry about scandalizing my sister?

VEX
I was going to offer to be your wing man (complete with a pun about having wings), but I don't know if that's weird or not, so instead I'm just going to say that I think it is good you're considering to put yourself out there, since there seemed to be some indecision, and also we should definitely get Velora a child-sized bow.

Um This is Hello, my name is Adaine Abernant. I'm newly arrived here and am very grateful for the answers to my likely far too many questions, however there is one thing that I overlooked: could someone tell me where I might be able to purchase a hopefully reasonably priced brass brazier? I arrived with my spellbook, but my focus is apparently still back in Elmville so I will need to rely on components, which I've never had to do before, and while I can easily get the charcoal and incense, the brazier is a bit more complicated and I really am unsure where anything is in this city and the buildings here are so tall, which I suppose I'm not entirely unused to, but they're very different than the suburbs, aren't they? And I'm clearly freaking out, breathe Adaine

Anyway, if anyone could point me in a direction -- that would be most helpful.

VEX & SHAUN
I did swing by that youth center that we talked about for Velora, just to check it out. I'm probably being overly cautious, but I can accept being an overprotective brother/legal guardian.

It looks good, overall. The kids seemed to be enjoying themselves and the staff was pretty attentive. I saw a list of classes that they have to keep them busy and I felt like Velora would be interested in more or less all of them, so that's a good sign. They are looking for staff and volunteers, though. I was thinking It's

[...] Would it be crazy if I tried something like that? I'm hesitant since outside of our sister and Kiri, my track record with handling youths isn't the greatest. So -- I don't know.

In what I think is truly my favorite tradition that I have observed in this place, I am here to share one of the newest additions to the Lantsov-Nazyalensky clan: Cut for image! )

His name is Misha and he has never done anything wrong in his entire life, including chewing on my shoelaces. Surely someone else used their teeth to fray their ends.

It occurred to me this morning -- while trying to hurriedly help Kiri find one of her shoes so I could take her and Velora to school before stopping to get a pair of lattes and oversized muffins to share with my 'chev before our school started -- that I have been here in Vallo nearly a year. And, while that is truly not a very long stretch of time in the grand scheme of things, had I been told a year ago that I would have been doing any of those things in as many months time, I would have likely laughed at the impossibility.

And yet, here we are. Life is funny.

Would you be willing to teach me a spell?

You know, I'm not very discouraged about my recent dipping of toes in being something like an adventurer. I'm likewise not entirely sure I'm cut out for a full-time engagement, but freelancing? Internship? I could do that.

VERIN
Just for warning as you will undoubtedly notice when I see you, I got a bit injured, but not as bad as last time. I'm patched up and am just going to take it easy.

In news that I imagine only Blue is interested in, my previously cancelled book readings are being rescheduled for this coming week at Chastity's Nook during the evening. Violent fowl rather got in the way last time for reasons I just don't want to think about anymore for the sake of my pride. But the socks I was given as payment for this service are rather wonderful and I would hate to disappoint, so here we are, rescheduling. As the resident experts, I've requested that Caleb and Jester pick the books to pull excerpts from, so I'm sure there will be far better selections than I might have chosen.

Anyway, if you have some desire to listen to me read adult literature, next week is your chance. You should also buy books or literally anything else they have for sale while you're there. Or, I don't know, bring cupcakes.

(You're welcome for the stellar marketing. I know where you both live to deliver the bill.)
