[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 know I shouldn't be laughing but
I'm sorry Ronan
Am I sorry?


If anyone sees a giant raven, who goes by the name Chainsaw, who may or may not have flown off with a tiny angry puppet Ronan Lynch, feel free to tell her she is a very good girl and deserves all the trash.

Also, I'll give you some knit freebies if you can get her to come back to the market with him.

I don't know why Vallo keeps forcing me to make these ridiculous posts, but it looks like something from the Blackpointers' past has cropped up here - the puppet spell.

You'll notice some of you have turned into a puppet. Back in the first reality I was kidnapped to, it was a spell created by a local witch of theirs to curb people from using their powers to kill everyone once they came through the portal that brought us there. The vast majority of their population were regular humans and couldn't handle superpowered people, otherwise.

Any time someone wished to harm someone physically, they'd turn into a puppet until they calmed down. It prevented some bloodshed and provided a lot of laughs cause it was hilarious, when it wasn't happening to you. It let us still spar with each other and let us defend ourselves if something was attacking us because it was always about the intent, but yeah. Guess the whole point of this post is to say if you don't want to spend your time as a puppet or toy (cause people turned into Barbies too), try not to get pissed off to the point of punching? You should be able to defend yourselves and spar though, so Defense teams, you should all be good. And the locals always seemed to ignore us when we were like this? So you should also be good for not being picked up by a random kid and taken home to be added to their collection.

I also don't know if Vallo put its own spin on this, so the rules for this bout of insanity might be different from what I know. Take all of this ridiculousness with a grain of salt and be wary of everything. Paranoia is your friend.

Also, Tina, Thalia, and I are hosting a luau over at Tina's place this Wednesday just cause that's how we always solved our problems back in Blackpoint. Show up in the afternoon, BYOB, casual, these things usually go late. [Address]

EDIT: Looks like getting very, very angry is triggering it too. So it's a new ball game, sorry guys.

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.

[ Filtered to Caroline Forbes, Simon can read but not comment (for Simon is best seen and not heard)]

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?

Darlings, as I am an salesman at heart, I find that it is often best to deliver information that may not well received sandwiched between otherwise fantastic news. If I may.

Good news: The accoutrements at Glorious Purveyors are, for lack of a better word, sublime. I, for one, have made ample use of a Blasting Cowl most recently and sometimes I wow even myself!

Bad news: We know this because the shop is currently under barrage from the recently arrived magic fiends.

Good news: Dorian is looking impeccable in boysenberry whilst he wields an ice staff!

Bad news: The shop is closed for the foreseeable future.

Good news: Nesta is a radiant avenging angel with a sword!

We're handling everything quite well, worry not, darlings, and have every intention of returning back to full services as soon as all of this is over with. Although, if anyone wishes to teleport over a bottle of wine, that would be most delightful.

Hi friends! It always seems like we have new people coming in, so I wanted to tell people that at the Barns, we run a farmer's market on Tuesdays and Thursdays! We have THE BEST dairy, and eggs, and knit goods, and sometimes other thing too, and it's SO fun to see everyone!! :)))))))) Plus, we have AMAZING animals--cows, alpacas, sheep, goats, a piglet, chickens, there are usually ducks at the pond, and sometimes other animal friends wandering around! :))))))))) It's SO nice and fun so come by!! Even if you've been here for awhile but have never come, you should! And say hi, a stranger is just a friend I haven't met yet!

AND if you can't make it on those days, which is totally fine, we do deliveries! I really like to run deliveries because I get to see people I might not normally be able to! And last week, I got tipped a package of strawberry frosted donut Oreos and it was like, the GREATEST thing in the world.

I changed my mind, THESE are the greatest things in the world )

Have a GREAT day!! :)))))))))))))


Gangsey

Okay, so, I think I want to go to college? Because maybe I think I want to be something like a preschool teacher? And I think I'm going to ask other people who I really respect and like for their opinions but I wanted to start with you guys? And if you think it's a bad idea?

I used a lot of 'thinks' lolololololololololol

So other than bits of hell that show up randomly, memory drops that will mess you up, killer animals appearing at random and maybe dark alternate versions of this place, anything else I should be aware of?

Margo & Marina.
Probably shouldn't have rushed off to help when someone posted about death, despair and torment being broadcast, huh?

Hey, Solnyshko, how many tentacles are you searching before you have to say "tentacles but don't make it weird"? Also, please be setting thirst trap soon!

Zimmboni, locker rooms are disgusting. You know this! How can you think sexy thoughts about locker room, knowing how locker room is smelling? I am shaking head.

Harry Potter, everybody is liking you. You are best! Do not let Snapes get you down. I hope you find many good chicken wings!

Gideon, are you getting more tits or better tits by using capital letters?

Dex, best poetry is by Pushkin. Well, is good in Russian. idk if is good in English.

Ciri, can you actually be deleting search history? I know you have big powers, but I did not think they were computer powers.

Person who is making dampfnudel, say hello! I want to make friends with people who are making dampfnudel! Is very good dessert! Also tell us if you find cat sweaters, that is very funny! I want to put cat sweater on cat.

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.

[Failed!Filter to those with magical abilities or magical knowledge]

I have a magical conundrum I have been seeking assistance with. If you believe you are a skilled sorcerer or researcher, I would like to discuss an important matter.

[ooc notes: bold strikes are failed strikeouts/deletes from Loki and this version of Sleipnir was Loki's child who Odin cursed to become Sleipnir-the-horse! I like including Loki's kids as part of his backstory and why he became what he did but it's a lot of headcanon on my part and the original myth is a little uncomfortable in context LOL]

SO, I made a whole new world. Used the World Seed and my envisioning of what New Fillory would look like in comparison to old Fillory which was basically pretty problematic. We had only just discovered that margharita pizza grew in fields and you can pull daggers out of trees. It was really great! And we brought citizens of the old Fillory with us! (As for what happened to the old world, well... let's just say someone really messed up the barriers between Fillory and the Underworld.)

And I was so prepared for life there but I was not prepared for life here. This is definitely not what I had pictured for the world when I birthed it. Even if I do really appreciate the people who brought me up to speed with everything.

Anyway, hi! I'm Fen! I'm new here. Does this place have similar areas to Earth? Like Times Square? Are your animals citizens too? And where do you get your daggers from?

You wake up and you're standing on a stage at a podium, spotlight's on you. You've got 15-20 minutes to give a Ted Talk (aka speech) on a subject you know by heart, no prep. If you fuck up you die (I'm adding this part in for dramatic effect). No, you can't use your powers to get out of the situation because no one cares about your powers or how sexy and badass you are in this scenario. You're giving a Ted Talk. It is what it is.

What's your Ted Talk?

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?

Alright, Vallo. I have a couple of things to discuss with you.

First and foremost, who has good recommendations for local wines? I've been pretty much sticking to Essek's supply or tried and true labels, but I'm ready to branch out and become a true aficionado.

Secondly, if one were to be interested in an animal companion of sorts, but I've was uncertain as to whether they were a "cat person" or a "dog person" or an "other animal person", how would one hypothetically go about deciding which to consider adopting?

Bonus points if this hypothetical animal companion is an asshole.
