[FILTERED TO GUARDIANS OF KIDS AT THE OUTLANDER GRADE SCHOOL + BARNS RESIDENTS (Includes everyone in the Xhorhaus)]
Ah- Hello. I believe I have met most of you by now, but I am Caleb Widogast. I co-own Chastity's Nook and am a professor at Geliara Academy. I am one of the guardians of Kiri, if your kids have met her, she is the one in very brightly colored clothes, has a healthy dose of black feathers, and an impressive mimicry vocabulary. I apologize if she taught your child swear words.

Her and Velora have been bugging us for some time to have a "sleepover"? I understand it is not an easy thing to trust everyone, especially people you do not know well. We would like to invite you all over for a large family dinner this coming Saturday evening?

There are several of us in this house and most are fairly responsible adults, so if you find us trustworthy, I am happy to offer our house for the children to spend the night in a giant pillow-fort room. And if you wish to stay as well, I would be happy to magic up some extra accommodations.

Ah- thank you. I probably am overthinking this but Kiri has never had much of a chance to have friends or family until this place, and we're approaching her being with us for a year and I have never been a father-figure before, so-- ja. Anyway.

I'm not saying that Vallo has a greater-than-average risk-taking population, but I am saying that my idea of wrapping up some ~mystery~ books here at Chastity's Nook and describing them only by their genre, theme and kink seems to be really taking off.

In other news, the salt and pepper's gone curiously missing from the flat. I've seen people complaining on the network about things just disappearing - including whole buildings, which I can only imagine - but nevertheless, I'm confident in griping about my own loss in miniature. I had to eat salt-less scrambled eggs this morning, and it was exactly as beastly as you might imagine, and I think I need some sympathy.

So it goes without saying, but thank you for your patience and continued pretending that I was not, in fact, the idiot whose private searches re: vampirism were made public. I've been hiding it for a long time - most of my remembered life, actually - and despite my attempts at subtlety with you I'm certain it was bloody obvious (Simon Snow is on this filter; he figured it out ages ago because he is as nosy as he is obnoxiously attractive).

At any rate, I'm not interested in vampire therapy or group talk or whatnot; I'm not terribly interested in vampires at all. But having to go to the forest for dinner is ruining my shoes, and I was wondering if there are any alternative processes discreetly available for those of us who don't drink human blood?

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?

Based on everybody's leaked search histories, I'm getting the idea that Vallo needs a better dating app. I've got the skills to build one. What features would you want to see?

Premise: A dating app for all species, all genders, and all sexualities. Ability to match, flirt, or message built-in. Flexible profile system allowing users to include whatever information about themselves or about what they're looking for that users find relevant. Clean, simple interface; profiles are conversation starters, not novels. Can be used equally well to find hookups or long-term relationship possibilities.

Some ideas I'm already working on:
- Some kind of unsolicited-dick-pic prevention. (Murderbot - do you think you could help with the design of a dick-recognition system sophisticated enough to make sure nobody sees a dick they don't want to see, but will also allow requested dicks and not instantly punish people for sending pictures of eggplants and cucumbers?)
- Search system allowing users to filter-in or filter-out profiles based on keywords and features of profiles. (Example: user Jessica Rabbit filters in all profiles with asexual identities, does not apply a filter to gender alone, and filters out all profiles that are identified as BOTH human AND male.) (With the flexible profile system, this can only get but so specific - if user Morgan wants to filter out everybody who hates baseball or filter in only people who enjoy European dance pop, Morgan's gonna have to handle that himself by talking to people.)

I could also use some brainstorming help coming up with a name. Currently scrawled on the whiteboard in my kitchen are:
Dater
Meeter
Alchemy
Connection
Connecter
Attach
Bridge

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.

Well, as it's been nearly three weeks since we've arrived and I've seen no sign that you lot are planning on either sacrificing us or indoctrinating us into what amounts to a fanged MLM cult, I can only assume that you're playing the long game. I can respect that. I was once kidnapped for three months and nothing happened, literally nothing, so I suppose my patience has been honed.

A few updates - I'm looking for employment. I considered returning to school, but all enquiries seem to indicate that it won't transfer to home and I refuse to take "Macroeconomic Variables and Markets" more than once because I love myself. I may be interested in taking a music course or two - hobby - but my primarily concern presently is clothing. All I have to call my own is this hideous Target ensemble I picked up back home and some panic boxers I purchased when I first arrived here. I've seen your shops on the Main Street, and some of them are... acceptable, but I'd like to know where you lot enjoy shopping. If you suspect you're probably unqualified to answer this question, you are.

Hello, my name's Tyrannus Basilton Grimm-Pitch, and with any luck you'll never have need to use it again: Baz is fine. I've left behind my CV when I was in your store yesterday afternoon. If you have an opening for a job I'd be very interested in taking it, as we're down to peanut butter and crackers in the pantry, and my standards for cuisine are higher than that. Back home, I'm working on my degree (economics) at university and in school I was top of my graduating class. Reading's a hobby of mine, and magic a way of life. I enjoy organization to the point where it drives my boyfriend insane, and I have a bright, filthy mind. I survived a truly stupefying amount of garbage and if I encountered a murder turkey in the hallowed halls of your store, I wouldn't hesitate.

Thank you for your consideration.

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.

So, funny story. You know how buildings and other fucked up stuff just appears here? Well, in the forest now lies a literal, actual haunted house that looks like about a hundred different strains of tetanus and dysentery (seriously, how did we not die after fighting an Eldritch horror in sewer water, we surely swallowed some of that shit) and it's from Derry and I p much pissed my pants when I saw it.

I know there are like 569 magic users here, so. Uh. Can someone help? 1. With magical xanax and also 2. With making sure that the lair IT crawled out of before the Age of Man or whatever isn't actually going to eject that fucking clown.

Thanks so much. I'll owe you my first born child. Or like, a thousand tacos.

Hello, I know that tomorrow will be a busy day and I do not want to take any of you away from your significant others or the event (we will be there, of course), but if you have time on Monday, I would like to steal away an hour or so if possible. I have a gift something to show all of you.

[FILTERED TO ESSEK]
You will be available after the event tomorrow for food and a little privacy, I hope?

Once the imminent threat of murderous fowl has passed and you have time, I'd like to talk to you about officially joining one of your defense teams. Wherever you need me. It's more or less what I did back home, so I have the experience, it just took me longer than it should have to decide that using that experience here was more important than trying something different.

From now until February 14, Chastity's Nook will be offering our mystery books as Blind Dates. There is a display in-store of books wrapped in plain paper with a short description on the front, and each purchase will be entered in a raffle to win an Adult Gift Basket. They are ah-- Valentine's Day themed, and Jester is putting them together, so they are sure to be interesting? And likely very dirty.

From the 6th-14th, our entire section of romance will be Buy-Two-Get-One-Free, so you can have plenty of opportunities to warm up.

(And if you or your loved one is a cat lover, inquire in the shop to have a Frumpkin Delivery Service added to your purchase.)

Now that it seems that the last few days weren't just a strange dream and I'm not going to wake up and find that the sun and good food weren't just my subconscious being particularly cruel -- hello there, Vallo. My name is Lysandra.

It was almost two months that I was over there in Terrible Vallo, so thank you again to everyone that facilitated and figured out how to break us out of that damn thing. This world is still leagues different from what I know from home, but I will absolutely take it.

That being said, to the person who turned into the massive, toothy lizard-like creature: I would very much like to add that to my repertoire, if I can ask questions.

Holy Reece's Big Cup with Pretzels you guys!!! Tomorrow is our Christmas Eve market and it's going to be so flipping Goldfish Epic Crunch Ranch I can't even handle it! :)))))))))))))))

So FIRST we have like, AMAZING Christmas trees with honestly, the BEST decorations I can't even explain how great, except to compare it to the time I made a s'more and used S'more Oreos as the cookie base! They're beautiful! They're quirky! They're interesting! They're festive! They're funny! They're tranquil!

Not all at once lololololol that would be a LOT to put on one decoration!

Blue has made SUCH good fiber arts things, like, I want to buy them all already and display them and wear them all at the same time! And here's what's SO cool about Blue's stuff? Is that I think somehow, she puts a little bit of herself in them! So you're wearing like, the best hat (maybe it looks a little bit like pancakes and syrup! but fill in what you think is a great looking crocheted hat) and all of a sudden you're like, holy Cadbury creme eggs, I feel like I could trample the patriarchy! Which we all should feel all the time but you know! :)))))))))))))))))

And Ronan's cards this time?? YOU GUYS. They're like, ART. Which, you might be like lolololol duh Matthew, but I mean it!! You could send them to someone and that person would be filled with such warmth and love, which is amazing, but also you could frame them and hang them and feel that same way--or both!!!

Oh AND because I have no shame and it sounds SO FUN, if you're like, hey Matthew, when you're making deliveries could you show up in a Santa suit..................I will totally do that because much like Santa Claus, I too love Christmas, joy, and cookies and milk. Or you can say no and that's okay too!!

Some of the animals may be out, but they might be finicky--the goats like, CHARGED outside and ran in the snow for like, 10 seconds and then CHARGED back in, it was hilarious. But the alpacas love it!

Look here for animals! )

Okay, can't wait to see you!!!

Um Hi, I'm Adora. New here.

Question: Do people from the same place sometimes show up here not remembering the same things? I mean, is that "normal"?
