My sister's gone, but I woke up with one of those slabs from the murderworld. Does Vallo think this is a fair trade? Don't get me wrong, I like being able to punch things even better than before, but I was kind of getting used to being a big sister again. Guessing this is the day everything goes back to 'normal' for everyone. I think I finally get what the word bittersweet is supposed to mean. Maybe it's good timing for the slab, because I actually do want to hit something today.

You guys hiring for anything right now? I need something constructive to do when I'm not on patrol.

I'm not much of a marketer but I do know how much time the people in my life spend on making family-friendly events happen for holidays, so I'm going to make sure I mention them properly.

For the third year, the Barns will be having its annual Halloween event on Thursday, October 27th. There will be the usual activities—face painting, spooky crafts, and farm animal engagement while they are wearing some kind of costume. The market will also be open for all your last-minute Halloween purchases, and the Baba Yaga carriage will be making a reappearance for rides from sun up until sundown. I'll let the rest of Ronan's decorations be a surprise.

If you have a business and you'd like to put up a flyer for the event, I will make sure you get one before the end of today.


Also, to whoever stole the wooden engine out of my bike and then put it back, thanks for not breaking it? I assume you tried to put it in your own vehicle and it didn't work. There's a reason.

I can't say that I'm much better at trash talk than Vik is, but I can say that we'll let our work do the talking for us, this car is pretty impressive given we built it from scratch just starting a few weeks ago and had to pause of uh- monster attacks.

Speaking of which, I've had good feedback on the generators and shields deployed at the hospitals and clinics, especially as of late. They managed to keep the lights on through most of the blackouts and the hospitals sustained minimal damage only, so I'm looking into the funding for mass-producing them for more buildings in the city. I've got some interest, so expect to see some development on that in the coming months if it's something your business or home might be interested in.

I had an idea I wanted to run by you about the Hexcore.

Listen up losers. With the race coming up it's occurred to me some of you are PAINFULLY BAD at trash talk. None of this "your car is a muted color of blue that does not suit you". NO. You gotta go for the JUGULAR. You gotta stab them in the GUT with WORDS. You gotta make them feel it, it's personal. It's raw. It's an art.

Learn your opponent. Pick on your friends. Don't just grab some random guy who just learned to drive and hasn't said shit to you and make fun of him, you're just being a dick. Focus on the race and the car and your opponents clear lack of skills. Or their face, if you get desperate. Oh also don't pull out the "your mom" trash talk, you know how much trauma all you idiots have? So much. You're gonna make somebody get all "but my mom is terrible and disowned me when I was twelve" and then you'll feel like the world's biggest prick. DO talk about how great you are in comparison to the other guy, but like, in a cool way.

Need practice? Hit me with it, I've got iron skin.

I have spent the last seventy-two hours1 refining additional elements2 on the car3, and I am now comfortable in saying this: Viktor4, I trash talk you5.


1. This exceeds my usual limits of going without sleep. I find I'm uncertain where I live now6
2. Finding a balance of burst speed and sustained speed is exciting work. I've done similar before, but only for extremely utilitarian reasons and life-or-death stakes. Playing with it, knowing that even should I fail, the only lasting consequence will be to my pride
7, is fun I've not gotten to have previously. I like it.
3. For the Great Vallo Race
4. Others may also consider themselves trash-talked if they wish. My confidence in my work is absolute.
5. I have read about the trash talk and I understand it is meant to be a good-natured sort of adversarial communication between friends. If I am doing it incorrectly, please advise so I may adjust my approach accordingly. These things do not come easily for me, but I do find that with study and occasional corrections from those who understand people, I can improve.
6. Genya, my love, if you would be so kind as to give me a hand at the shop, I would appreciate it.
7. Everyone should applaud my wife for being as brave and gracious as she is beautiful, because after considering the matter she has elected to withhold any objection to my taking the passenger seat while Nikolai drives our creation.

The car is progressing. After reviewing the race rules, I've tweaked the hover system so it is an option, but not the main mode of transportation. Vertical propulsion is now available if you reroute throttle from engine a to engine b; it is... a bit... what's the word? Finicky though. It needs improvement. Kicking helps.

Also, it seems that projectiles are viable but generally frowned upon in this race, so I made some structural changes to the sidecar and now Jayce has more foot room. (I hid the projectiles. We may need them yet.) Jayce's work on the engines is revolutionary; they roar. I would shudder to think of any such contraption on the roads of Piltover, but for such a thing as this? Excellent. We will terrify children.

I think we'll need to test it later this week, once we are certain that the prototype crash system is functional. Should we test the brakes? Is that backwards-thinking? We are intending to accelerate, not stop, but perhaps we may wish to avoid an obstacle in our path? Limited use for brakes. Hmm.

Oh wait, yes, Jayce says we'll be testing the brakes. I will add it to the list.

I like to think I'm pretty easy to please. You think Vallo could throw some monsters at us that, hear me out, are good at being punched? Or shot, I'm okay with giving Caitlyn something to do, too. Too much "oh it requires magic" or "basically a god" or "good luck if you're a normal human" shit running around.

But also fuck, this place is insane. I kind of love it?

Are you truly feeling better, Mel?

And I am not sorry for making the obvious suggestion re: the usage of the hexcore. Although I am obviously glad it did not come to that.

Would you rather fly high short distances, or hover just above the floor for a long period of time?

Good morning (is it morning yet?), Vallo:

As this appears to be related to a magical spell or curse, the Department of Magical Research and those associated with it are aiding investigations into what happened and how to resolve it. Below the cut are the names of everyone I am aware of that fell ill during yesterday's Moon Day festivities. If you recall a name that is not on this list, please share it, along with any other information that you might have as to timing, initial symptoms, etc.

Thank you for your assistance.

I'm thinking about encouraging the men in my life to take me to this moon party tomorrow. Is anyone else going? I can't tell what the dress code is. I assume casual but "dress fly and catch these fresh beats" wasn't exactly illuminating. Maybe one of the other flyers will be more helpful.
[FILTERED TO MAGIC USERS WHO PRESENTED AT THE OUTLANDER EVENT]
It was a pleasure to watch you all showcase your skills and knowledge. Thank you for sharing them with everyone. I did a little networking while I was there at the event and I have a new list of locals with an interest in particular magics and either the money to back up that interest or at least useful connections to provide. If you run into a need for a new job or more resources, let me know. I might have a lead for you.

Reginald Hargreeves was a shithole person and it took me too long to realize it wasn't my that I deserved bet he's an asshole, I'm awesome, that's very simple.

And my siblings are okay as well, I suppose.

Anyway, if you had a shithole parent, go ask someone else if you're okay, because I'm not doing that for everyone. Judging by all of those future kids, looks like some of you are okay parents, which is more important.




Ugh, fuck, I'm going to hide away in a cave for forever. I have my blender bottle and protein powder and I can do calisthenics, I don't need anything else.

I got My cry You know the magic crystal by which all of Hextech was fou Did any of you g I got offered a contract here by two major local hospitals for backup generator technology. Four larger ones, two for each hospital, and then a whole set of smaller portable ones for each room.

Viktor and Brigitte, I'm forwarding you both the contract details. It feels like a lucrative good opportunity.

Also, Mel's in Moulin Rouge next weekend. I got tickets for me and Viktor to go and support her two of the nights, you guys should all go see it too. We're going on Thursday and Friday if you'd like to sit with us. Vik, you can ignore this until Thursday, but you are not getting out of it.

A query: What environmental concerns do you have about your life here in Vallo?

I ask because I'm working with the Enki coven's Green Initiative... and I ask because I'm nosy. But mostly: the Green Initiative. Obviously we have greater resources here - through technology and magical aptitude - that have provided us with a beautiful and appropriate living space. But nothing is perfect, and I trust that those of you who have lived here longer than me may be able to give me insight into where there is opportunity.

Nothing may come of this; I am ah--- having a brain storm! Thank you.
