Smiley day to y'all! I thought it'd be nice to talk about journaling! In times when the days seem to blend together, journaling helps you soul-touched separate one from the next, and also helps clear distressing thoughts invading your heads and dreams (I'm mighty curious about dreaming as I myself do not dream). It may not always feel pleasant, but disclosing emotions rather than stuffing them down is ultimately much more healthy! Some may have some secret pain or stressor that they cannot share with others, but seeing that translated into the written word that exists outside of your mind and heart can help make sense of it all!

Journaling also allows one to put experiences in sequential order, to examine cause and effect, and gain distance from events and situations. A stitch in time heals all wounds, and I'm sure y'all will make a beautiful tapestry!

Here's a good prompt in case you'd like to try it, and we can all be vulnerable with each other: In the book of your life, what would your chapters be called?

We're making great progress on our app for connecting minor Unfinished Business cases with people willing to help. If you're interested in being part of the beta test (launching in May), let me know here. We'll need people with varied skills and backgrounds, as the needs of our ghost clients span a pretty wide range.

Hey, got word you might be interested in partnering with MageNet R&D on some of the Green Initiative work. Wanna chat?

Who around here handles Weird Shit Going Down? We've picked up a magitechnical stream over here at MageNet that seems to indicate at least a few people have been snatched up to somewhere. Mei and I are getting it set up for monitoring now, so if any of you want to get on down here (Conference Room 1012), we could use some Powers That Be types.

I like Vallo, but there should be more spaceships and stations (sorry Morgan). This is the longest I've been planetside since I was manufactured four years ago. Weather.

Just as a head's up, since the pub will be busy beyond belief for St. Patrick's Day like it was last year (or so I'm hoping), I'm likely closing up for Valentine's Day this year just to give everyone a nice evening off.

Plus I just want to have it off and it makes the mos

Okay, so I just got hit with a new app development project. Since this is something I have even less experience with than romantic relationships, congratulations, you're now part of my market research.

The basics:
  • With an ever-rising population of dead folks and the discovery of some misfiled items from about fifty years back, Ankou Coven's ended up with a significant backlog of "unfinished business" cases
  • Ankou's personnel are overtaxed as it is, and spiritual triage dictates that they focus on the most pressing unfinished business first, so a lot of non-emergent but still significant cases are left waiting in line
  • ...but luckily, we have a large untapped well of personnel in the form of Helpful Outlanders
  • ...and with a little bit of cooperation between Enki, Ankou, and your friendly neighborhood app developer (who can actually stay in human form again, hooray), we think we can create an app that would put these Helpful Outlanders in touch with Spirits In Need.


So, here's phase one of my market research, to which any and all answers are appreciated:

  • if this app existed, would you put a profile on it?
  • If you were/are dead, what would you be looking for in a living problem-solver?
  • If you were/are alive, what would you be looking for in a case to assist with?
  • Thoughts on the name Medium? Better ideas?
  • General thoughts and feelings on the project?
  • Ideas for imagery to avoid, imagery to use, etc.?
  • Would you be interested in assisting in a more official capacity? I'm perfectly happy to just make an app and walk away when it comes to you people hooking up and/or finding people to eat sushi in silence with, but we could probably use a little more involved community management here and a list of resources to contact in addition to what Ankou already has in place.
  • Do you think we'll need to update the dick recognition algorithm for this?

We're really going to do this? Shit. Okay, why not. Here we go.

Name's Colt. Colt Vahn. The explosions? On the welcome vid? They were something else. I know it's not even noon, but time means nothing, so if any of you could point me to somewhere that pours drinks and doesn't ask questions, I'd be thankful.

And don't try to loop shoot me. Had about enough of that to last me a goddamn lifetime.

so i've been doing some self-research, and it seems like my blend-in instinct is in overdrive

the oh-shit-we're-getting-attacked reflex is getting triggered too easily, and then i immediately turn into something new to try to preserve a sense of safety

best trick for avoiding it so far is floating in water in typhon form. water feels safe like space if i'm typhon, so i can stay one thing

not sure yet if the problem is neurological following impact trauma or psychological following unexpected failure to protect self

usually i'm the specialist on that, but i can only get so far trying to analyze myself, and i told hannah i'd get help if it went on more than a couple days

so...

we got any other brain guys around here? exobiologists? magineurologists? people with experience studying neural networks with atypical structures? note: must be chill with tentacles

i need some help figuring out if this is damage that needs repair or if i just need to keep floating a while til the stress eases up

and happy new year, my lunar calendar bros. mei, i still expect you to feed me dumplings

With major damage at MageNet and the Skyline, Lunar New Year festivities have been shifted to a smaller event as rebuild efforts are under way. Bonnie will be posting about efforts later as the covens come together, but please swing by for a smaller, but still delicious event full of dumplings tomorrow!

Thank you all that came out to help me at the Aviary last week. Most of our birds made it and we will be honoring the ones that didn't tomorrow.

Ummm. The number of these things absolutely increased out of no where, right? I'm not imagining that? Cos I may need more help, which by that I mean I definitely need more help.

[ADDED LATER]

If there's anyone else who can come help, that'd be great. We do have some injuries here, including Cobb, Morgan, and myself.

I'd like to think I'm seeing things, but I'm fairly sure that I'm not.

Um, there is... a creature near my pub right now that I'm about 99% positive was one of the creatures loose when we were all trapped in the snow globe last year. So, I'll be noping out of this and going into hiding until it goes away, thank you.

See, this is why I prefer space stations to planets. You never just come across unexpected flora and fauna in a space station, and if you do, congratulations, your shit's fucked (see: Alien (1979), Aliens (1986), Ale-- you know what, the whole damn series). But now we're on a planet, and we don't know what all is on it, and then it's just a neverending symphony of "what the shit is thaaaaaaat". Even planets that have been explored for centuries are always turning up new species like the worst game of whack-a-mole ever.

Sigh. Targets acquired. Stay safe, unless you're a capitalist. See you fuckers on the flipside.

What's one thing from Vallo unavailable in your home world that you can't imagine giving up now?

I probably should write something selfless like "enhanced medical procedures that can save lives", or even sensible like "indoor plumbing", but instead I'm going to honor the faithful beverage that has kept me company while working a late shift: Diet Mountain Dew. You're awful, and I still feel shame when I think about our nights together, and it's a wonder I still have teeth.

Greetings, and welcome to Vallo. I've given you time to get settled, but I wanted to reach out personally and introduce myself. My name is Wen Qing. It likely doesn't mean much to you outside of my connection to Wen Ning, who is my brother. I work as a healer here and have found much joy in this place. While we don't know one another, I wanted you to know that I am happy to make your acquaintance and if you ever need medical care, which is likely given the company you keep, please come see me and I will be happy to assist you.

As convenient as the Waypoints are, it seems high time that I learn how to drive a proper vehicle. Has anyone any advice for going about that?

I suppose at some point I'll learn to stop questioning your judgement. Thank you for helping me see sense even when I stubbornly refused to do so.

Our Most Gracious Hosts,

Thank you again for dinner on Sunday. Both Lan Huan and I had a marvellous time; the food was splendid and the company moreso. We both look forward to doing it again sometime soon.

Your friend,
Wm. Laurence

P.S. I very well may have to bother you for that cookie recipe at some point.

I didn't get to post about this earlier, but given the bad weather of yesterday and having to reschedule it, I got a second chance! Enki Coven will be hosting a kite festival on the grounds of MageNet in honor of Uttarayan on the 21st that is open to all. There will be a fair, bonfire, a feast, and, of course, kite fighting (as well as kite flying for those of you that don't want to cut up your fingers). There will be the opportunity to bathe in the Yamuna river (it will be COLD) for those that want to go full in on tradition.

Also with Lunar New Year coming up, Enki Coven will be hosting an open event on the grounds of MageNet on the 1st of February. There will be traditional foods offered from various traditions (dumplings, Buddha's Delight, mandarin oranges to name a few!) and we will be lighting a moon house on fire. You will have the opportunity to add wishes to it before the lighting ceremony!

Prayer sessions will be held earlier in the day during both events, that people are welcome to join or witness.
