I have never looked forward to a summer of free time more than I am right now. I have no doubt that I will change my tune in a couple of weeks, when I get through my pile of books I've been putting off and realize I need additional hobbies.

EXANDRIANS
I have been so wrapped up with the end of the semester that I just know I've missed the arrival of a good number of people from home, so I wanted to both apologize and rectify that as well as I can. I'm Cassandra de Rolo and I'm from Tal'Dorei, specifically Whitestone. I've spent more or less all of my life there, though my brother and Vex had been nudging me into doing more travel for myself--I think that they meant somewhere like Marquet, not an entirely different world.

That said, given that there is such a population of us, I thought that we might be overdue an opportunity for getting to know one another in person so I am suggesting: potluck dinner at the Xhorhaus (apologies to my housemates; I promise to do the cleaning afterward) on this coming Friday, May 20?

Good morning ☀️ hunnies!! 🤗🥰😘 Remember me? 👋👋

It was a little over a year 📅 ago that (❗️❗️ THIS IS HUGE ❗️❗️) my interest in gardening 🌱💮 was sparked 💥 thanks to some sudden 👸💆‍♀️💅 memories from home 🧝🔮. It was a bit later on in the season, so while some plants 🌿🌴 were still able to thrive (❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️), many of those more suited for spring 🍃 had to be skipped. This year 📅, however, is a different story 🎉🥳🙌 and it has been quite nice to leave the house 🏡 in the morning 🌄☕ to see so many blooms 🌼🌻🌹, those practical for components ✨ and simply for aesthetics 🧐 alike.

UMMM! 😱😱😱 Not that I can claim all credit for them, of course. 😇🤫 I think it is fair to say that Yasha 🌩️🌷 is far more gifted 🎁 in that area than I am.

So any boss babes 🤸💁💅 wanna join my amazing team ✌️ and change the world?? 🌍👯‍🤗

[...] This is what I get for hoping 🤞🤞🤞 whatever has been happening on here was over. 🤣💀 How ridiculous. 🤪

CALEB
Hey hottie~ 🔥💖💋 random question for you! 💓🔎📝

😊😊😊 Your birthday 🎂🎈 is in a few weeks 📅❗️❗️ and I thought that rather than plan an event 🥳 for you without asking permission again 🙊🤷🙃, I would see if you wanted to do 😏 anything in particular. I thought asking might also prevent any of our friends 🍭💥🌊⚡ from making potentially unwanted 🙅⛔ plans, as well. 😅

[...] I am so sorry. 🙇‍♂️🤦

So if everything I've been told is true, I've managed to find myself in a completely alternate realm than the Lands Between, along with the rest of you. ...I confess, I didn't see this twist coming. Perhaps Grace hasn't cast me off entirely.

Name's Rogier. Sorcerer. You'd probably have guessed it if you'd seen the hat (I very much like hats. Large ones. Otherwise what's the point?). Got here a few days back; having a bit of a bad week but I believe I might have gotten a good chance at help. A rousing thank you to Adam, who got me out of the forest and into civilization; believe I might've talked his ear off in a bid to stay conscious. Anyhow, I was told I'd need to pop in here, and say hello - what a wild system this is; they said it wasn't magic but I promise, the network looks like magic to this dolt. I like libraries, clean fights, being a cautionary tale told over campfires, and never saying never. Who are you lot? Tell me some good stories; I think I'm stuck here at this healing facility for a little while so I'm not going anywhere quickly.

[ Filtered to Sydney Clarke, Shaun Gilmore, and Blue Sargent ]
Hello there; they said that you'd already been contacted re: my thorny little situation (I'm not sorry; this is the kind of nonsense you're going to have to expect from here on out). At any rate, I hope this message isn't a surprise. But if it is: I've run into a little death curse, and I was rather hoping that some of you might be able to assist me with ridding myself of it. The sooner the better; it's unpleasant and I don't get to wear my fanciest trousers.

I have had this raven following me around for almost two weeks now and she is still nameless. This is not for lack of trying? Nothing seems to click and I'm starting to think it is a good thing we already know what our daughter's name will be thanks to Vallo, if I'm struggling this hard. So, in what may or may not be a great idea, I'm coming to you all for suggestions.

These are the ideas I have had and decided against so far:

Nova
Penelope
Dandelion
Peanut Butter (PB)
Sundae
Peaches

(Vix/Vux/Vyx is tentatively still on the table for now. I was not given adequate feedback when I asked someone at a very reasonable time of the night.)

Ideas? Even if I don't pick your idea, you will have my appreciation which might mean something, I don't know.

Uhm, I don't know what a movie is, but you mean you'll pay me to just take my shirt off? It's like the video they showed me inside? That was pretty amazing. Cool, cool.

It will have been a month since Laudna and I arrived here. I know that is a very short amount of time compared to some of you, but it is probably the longest that I have been stationed in one place since I left my home several years ago and that feels like quite something. Who knew that it would take being pulled into another world to do it?

Oddly enough, I'm not complaining despite the circumstances. I've been trying to hedge my expectations, but it's proven to be an expect the unexpected sort of place. That isn't necessarily a complaint, either. I have always liked flower crowns.

DEFENSE TEAM A
Uhhh Hey, I'm Orym. I just signed myself up to help out with defense and was assigned to your team, so--I wanted to officially introduce myself before I start showing up to stuff. I'm looking forward to meeting you all.

VAX & CASSANDRA, backdated to April 16
I think I had a dream like your Raven Queen dream, Vax. Only I didn't see her, I saw Percival. He was older. We had a fam Older than I last remember, I mean. And I know it was a dream, but it felt as real as anything else I've remembered while I've slept, except that I was cognizant of it being a dream happening to me.

Anyway, I saw him, and I thought you might both want to know.

SHAUN
You and me and a cup of tea?

Out of curiosity, and I apologize if I am speaking out of turn, but has there been any progress in fixing all of the odd identity shenanigans that are happening right now? I do not wish to rush anyone, however I would rather like to have my wizard back.

Ah. No offense meant, Illidan.

Normally this is when I would offer assistance, but I know this sort of magic is outside my expertise and experience and am just humble enough to admit it.

I'm pretty familiar with ravens, but less so with a singular one just following me around? And staring a lot? ...through windows? So I think that I'm ready to no longer be in denial and admit that this one is trailing but before I do.

Cut for image! )

Anyone recognize her?

I have been here in Vallo for a little over two weeks and while I know that isn't a long time in comparison to many of you, I'm all too aware of how much a life can change in two weeks--the last two weeks of my life back home being evidence of that.

That being said, everyone has been really kind and welcoming to me and my friends so I just wanted to say thank you for that. This situation is still real weird, but it's easier with people being so nice.

BELLS HELLS
On top of the money that I won during fight club, I got a notification on this thing that I'd had some money put into my account out of nowhere. I made sure it was real, but apparently it's a thing that just happens sometimes? They said it was a Vallo magic quirk.

So, anyway, we've got 1100 more gold dollars to play with. Will that help with house things, Laudna?
GILMORE + DORIAN
Hey, Mr. Gilmore. I hope you're having a good start of the week so far. Dorian and I were wondering if we could make good on your offer for tea, if you have some time? We know you're a busy guy and that you don't know us yet back home, but it'd be nice to see you and catch up.

We'd also like to meet your friends in person too, but I know our group can be a bit overwhelming in the best way sometimes, so thought it might be good to just start with the two of us? Just let us know!

And thank you!

VEX & GILMORE
I had a dream last night about the Raven Queen. I guess it was a dream--I don't know, it felt incredibly real, but it wasn't the same as when we've remembered things, Vex. I was living it, but I remembered Vallo and everything that has happened while we've been here.

Anyway. We don't have to worry about her whisking me away from here any longer. She made it pretty clear that's off the table.

A student just called me Professor "Short King" after I agreed to give them an extension on an assignment.

Entirely unrelated, I will now resume floating at all times.

Actually unrelated, I have a new spell in my arsenal that I would like to put to more than a second phase of testing, so please let me know if murderous fowl, gremlins, metal dinosaurs, vicious oversized rabbits, or any of the other violent and uncontrollable hurdles that Vallo has thrown at us in the past--or something like it--shows up. It is for science.

VOICE POST.
Hello. I have been told this works similarly to a sending stone. And I can contact—I can type? Is that like, oh! I see. Thank you. With the letters? No, no F.C.G. I didn't mean you, but—Hm? What did you ask? Ah, yes. [Some polite laughter.] I am indeed blue, all the time.

Now excuse me, where do I say we are? The Department of Outlander Affairs office?

Imogen, could you—[There is a few pointed coughing noises, one which sounds suspiciously like the name Fearne and not a cough.]

TEXT POST.
Orym, Laudna. If you could manage to come to the Department of Outlander's Affairs office, myself, Imogen, Fearne, and F.C.G are waiting. I'm concerned Fearne has acquired some things that might belong to other people. And F.C.G. has refused the money they have offered at least five times.

This is Dorian, by the way. I am not sure if you can tell from the writing. Can everyone see this?

Hey all! Kind of need help with a couple of magic things? Figured I'd ask here first before meeting up with a witch in the woods...

A dragon from our world came through a few days ago as small as a large dog. Normally, she's longer than a few buildings put together so we're not sure why she's so small right now. We think it might have something to do with the connection she has with our homeland. She gets her abilities and strength from that land and its waters, so we're hoping to have someone more magical than us take a look at her to make sure she's okay or if we need to do something about providing her with another magical source.

My sister and I've done a little researching and we noticed there's quite a few dragons around as well as sanctuaries and preserves. We'd also like to introduce the Great Protector to other dragons and find out if she wants to live somewhere else more suitable than a crimin- training compound.

I also had a magic item come through from home and...are there magical diagnosticians out there? I, um, don't know much about it and want to rule out some things. If anyone can help us with any of these things, I'd appreciate it! And your drinks will be on me this weekend at Dorian's!

Someone I work with mentioned that today is some sort of celebration of pie and who am I to not participate this morning: cut for picture of breakfast pie~ )

Yes, I will be having pie for lunch and dinner and no, I'm not interested in criticism.

Since it's starting to warm up, what would you say to planning another camping trip with Velora?

The magic symposium was a delight, if I might say. I will always appreciate the sheer diversity of magic that I've had the luxury of witnessing since arriving in Vallo, both through the native magic of this world and that brought by other Outlanders. It is always fascinating and it was nice to have an event such as this to have yet another avenue to appreciate it.

And if you missed Professor Widogast's discussion on his specialties, well. You certainly missed out.

Compliments aside, between the symposium and the recent coven meeting, I am rather looking forward to gardening this season, plotting things out, choosing vegetables (now is the time to speak up on tastes and preferences, those who live with and around me), starting seeds to germinate--which is yet another sentence that strikes me as one that I never would have thought a couple of years ago, mundane though it might be. Here we are, hm.

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.

JOURNAL ➣ VALLO DAY 4 | SPHERE EARLY DAY 7

My books are gone. If someone finds them, I would like them back.



[...] Gilmore and Serefin are also gone, so if someone finds them, I'd also like assurances of their safety.

CALEB
Yesterday we were being attacked by some sort of golem that appeared to be attracted to magic. Serefin fought it while Gilmore and I tried to work a ballista that, it turns out, shoots acid, because I--all right, we-- managed to get it to cooperate and we took out the golem before it, well, killed Serefin.

It was very exhilarating, while also reminding me of our time in Aeor and thus making me wish you were here. Forgive that selfishness.

Alright, so I think that smashing things had some real fucking success because when I went to the Underground to punch the fuck out of something to work, there's some goddamn like, cabinet thing outside.

With my track record of finding shit, I'm going to guess this is important.

Or I'll smash it, whatever.

And in spite of being around (and selling, I'm fucking amazing at selling who knew? Me.) magical shit the other day, I don't know what the fuck it does.

So you all in wherever the fuck you are look for a cabinet-cupboard thing and we'll see if you're supposed to get out that way or some shit?

I volunteer to throw a knife or Vax into it.

Also someone tell me how my idiot protege and my idiot brother are.
