I want you to know how very close I came to getting one of those brass bands to follow you about playing the birthday song.

Genya, I apologize in advance but I have a need of your husband: I've got an idea for a project, and delightfully enough, it's not something that will end in horrors and accusations of war crimes!

Genya told me I need to write a proper introduction. So
1. Give name and origin
2. Apologize for previous entry
3. Explain relations/establish self
4. Announce desire for employment
5. Establish experience
6. Salutation
7. Insert footnotes


Hello. I am David Kostyk, and I have learned that "where is your nitroglycerine?" is not a traditional greeting in this world. I've also learned that the problem I needed nitroglycerine to solve is no longer a problem1.

I'm Genya Safin2's husband, a friend and colleague of Nikolai Lantsov3, a Grisha Fabrikator4, and a recent transplant to Vallo. Since everyone with power isn't automatically drafted into an army here, I'm now looking for a lab position. I've been employed as a scientist, engineer, and general problem solver since childhood. My previous experience is primarily in weapons development, but I would prefer to turn my skills toward something that will actually improve the world rather than destroy it. I would appreciate any help that can be offered in seeking such employment. Thank you.



1I would still like to be able to explode things for testing purposes. Where one problem is solved, another tends to appear.

4Grisha Fabrikators, also called Materialki, come in two types: Durasts and Alkemi. Durasts are capable of manipulating solid matter down to its tiniest forms, using the mind and often aided by gestures for focus
5Tailors are Grisha capable of manipulating living matter who use their gifts to change people's appearances. Genya is the best of them.

I have been working on a spell for several weeks and it is beginning to dawn on me that should I ever want to cast it, I am going to need so very many diamonds.

XHORHAUS FOLKS
Caleb and I will be away this weekend. Try not to create any emergencies.

That being said, would someone in the house be willing to feed Frostbite while we are gone? She needs a scoop of food during the morning at around 7AM and then another come evening by no later than 6PM. If it is beyond either time, she will find someone in the house and create a demanding fuss. It involves an escalation of yowling, putting paws on faces, and shredding silk shirts.

She has also grown used to receiving treats when either of us return from school or the shop in the afternoon, so she may grow demanding then, too.

Also, Yasha, would you be willing to check on and water my plants, if needed?

I read somewhere that you should practice gratitude as a way to counteract anxiety, so in that spirit: this time of year, I start to reflect on all the places I've been, and all the wonderful people I've met. As the days get longer and hotter, what continues to cross my mind is none other than the sheer fact that I'm so fucking glad to not be back traipsing through the neverending sand bog that is the Hissing Wastes.

I'm also grateful for ♡♡ my wonderful husband Richie and the amazing intelligent whirlwhind El, whose hair is recovering so nicely ♡♡ (Did you like the hearts? Did they embarrass you, El? Good.)

What are you grateful for?

This is all very nice, but I need a pound of titanium, a pound of aluminum, a cup of nitroglycerin, paper, and a pencil before this idea slips my mind. I didn't leave my wedding reception to not get this alloy figured out. A little assistance, please?

Alright, since its been a couple of months, I'm sure there are new people who have come and gone, I think re-introductions are in order.

My name is Genya. I'm a tailor... though not for clothes but for your looks. I can alter the human body, any minute little details. When I lived in Texas for some time, I was using it for hair and makeup. In my world, I was basically royalty's personal plastic surgeon without the surgery part (I believe that's what you'd refer to it as in other worlds). Also the effects are temporary.

And therefore, I'll be helping with the Calendar project with hair and makeup. You can see how you look with hair matching the fur and feathers of your animal without dealing with hair dye!

I guess I'm also looking for a job here again too, but I think that'll come later when I'm settled again.

Well, I know now what you all mean when you say "memory update". I can't recommend it, not even as a little change to spice things up a bit.

What's the last thing you remember from home really? I appreciate the ambiguity you gave to me the other day, but I'd appreciate knowing specifics.

My thanks to all who have already volunteered to assist with the Outlanders and Animals Calendar project. The window to volunteer is not yet closed. If you wish to participate in any capacity, please use the sign-up sheet at The Art of Expression.

Good morning, all. Thank you for your interest in this project, and for your willingness to meet with me, show your very impressive portfolios, and begin the process of this great undertaking.

I would like to bring all of us together for a design meeting as soon as possible. Would you be so kind as to indicate your availability over the coming week for a discussion of artistic concepts?

For your future reference, here is the current list of animal models who will be joining our people; I have transcribed notes on names and descriptions where I have them.

Good morning, all. Thank you for your interest and participation in this project. I have received the final list of animal models from the Sanctuary and the Shelter, and I would like to offer you all the opportunity to make special requests to be paired with specific animals. I cannot guarantee that these requests will be honored, especially if more than one person expresses an interest in a particular animal, but I will do my best.

Also, as we have had a great deal of interest in modeling, please drop by the sign-up sheet at The Art of Expression to indicate if you would be willing to be paired with another human model for your shoot.

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. 🙇‍♂️🤦

This is most certainly not October weather. And I'm pretty sure the last thing I remember, I was still in my apartment.

Don't tell me all my things were given away.

Is there anyone around who still remembers a Genya Safin hanging around?

I just spent ten hours drafting plans for a costume and then it occurred to me that it might be a little offensive to some people. UGH

Though, now that I think about it, I could put a question out to the people of Vallo. Because I love you all and would never want to offend, even accidentally. Unless you're an asshole and need to be offended, then I'm all over it. BUT, that's besides the point. Do we have still have any vampires?

It is day three of school and I had one of my students that I taught last year stop and give me a pastry before classes started and it gave me a feeling that I think some might describe as "warm" and "fuzzy".

On a less sentimental note: a new podcast should become available this evening, for those who are interested in such things. Topics include a slightly deeper dive into the manipulation of time and the historical hurdles can crop up within that scope of magic, a story about how I solely used Mage Hand to cause general mayhem to my younger brother when our mother was not around after I first learned it as a youth, and a comprehensive and infallible list of the best autumnal beverages and foods around Vallo -- as they say on various internet articles, number one will shock you. (Note: Number one will not shock you, if you know me at all.)

Rosh Hashanah will be upon us soon, and it's one of the holidays I do try to celebrate here - I can't say I am good about celebrating all of them, in accordance with my faith, but I have the time and space to at least try so that's what I plan to do again. I also plan to host a dinner at our penthouse, for anyone interested in attending and you don't have to be Jewish, you can just like food - the standard Rosh Hashanah foods will be available (challah, apples and honey, etc) but I also plan to rope my grandson Tommy into helping me make plenty of pierogi (surprise, Tommy). Everything will take place on the evening of September 6th.

One of the traditions for Rosh Hashanah is also to try something new, a hobby or a game or visit a new place, or make a list of what you no longer need and getting rid of those things - to make a donation. For that part, Anka Irene will help me - she has a lot of toys and clothes that could be donated elsewhere, and it's always a good feeling to kind of start fresh with things. Even if sometimes, here, we're forced to start over again very unexpectedly sometimes.

I think I've finally managed to work out how to use this.

Salutations,

My name is Will Laurence, and I've only just arrived. As strange as it all is to adjust to, I've felt quite welcome; I don't think I've ever known a people so prone to burst into song before, and I grew up on Ships where Work Songs were quite common.

Second, I've been under the impression, and I hope that someone can correct me, that Vallo does not possess a Dragon Covert. If I'm incorrect, I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the Correct Direction. If I'm correct, I would appreciate any help in regards to finding a Location where a Heavy-Weight Dragon may wait to be found, or, if anyone has discovered a Dragon who goes by the name of Temeraire, if they could take me to him.

Respectfully,
Wm. Laurence

Late nights going over lesson plans mean trancing, which in turn means early mornings to enjoy my ring that is once again negating my sensitivity to the sun. Malla tagged along and looked as at home as ever. Cut for picture! )

I ah am hoping that all are recovering well as Vallo seems to right itself after the most recent ordeal.

As a further update, I experimented with seeing where my magic stood after the walk by trying to teleport and we now have an assortment of pastries in the kitchen, because I was very excited as this means my magic is fully back and I expressed that excitement the only way I know how at this point. Please enjoy.

If you would like a brief respite from whatever is going on outside, might I suggest listening to a very specific podcast?

In other words, I just uploaded a new one where I talk about basic theories of time manipulation and how it relates to a scientific study of spacetime, a recipe for candied carrot soup, and the tale of how an experiment gone awry is why I keep my hair short. All very riveting stuff -- or, at the very least, a break for the ears if the volume of your device is up high enough.

And that is officially enough marketing of myself for today.

As always, there's a lot going on (and some headaches) but FYI: After months and months, I finally got everything together for a literal, actual, functional bed and breakfast - instead of a dark and dreary enchanted hoarder castle in the forest, my father's former place is now The Princess & The Pea and will be officially open for business on Monday. A lot of it is warded off but there are still places to look around (if you're into fairytale stuff), a rose garden, and six rooms available for the b&b experience; all those rooms have been redone. We also got bathrooms hooked up for each so no chamber pots, don't worry. Regina makes the food and it's fantastic. I hired some locals but if anyone else is looking to work in hospitality, let me know.

Thanks to Kady and Jake for helping set the place up, helping to fix any snafus, and also helping to taste test all the food. And thanks to my kid for giving me an answer when I asked 'so what would you name a b&b if you could pick anything?'
