Good morning, Darling. I hope work's been going well this morning.

I don't suppose you know much of magical amulets?

Similar to Adam's post, the DOA has slowly becoming less populated by Outlanders. I'm about to challenge the magic department to an office games tournament just to keep things lively.

If you're looking for a job, or new job, there are opportunities in the DOA as Outlander Representatives to the Vallo Government, Community Outreach, Medical Lead, PR & Comms, Welcoming Committee Lead and staff, Education Department Lead and staff, and Defense Department members.

Must be able to deal with Brenda and her damn essential oils.

I have confirmed that I am all that remains of my family in Vallo. All others from the land of my origin have gone on to other lives. Lotus Pier and the Burial Mounds are gone, but Cloud Recesses remains.

If any friends of Lan Wangji, Wei Wuxian, Lan Sizhui, Jiang Cheng, Jiang Yanli, Jin Ling, or George Weasley wish to join me in the traditional prayers for those who have moved on, I will hold the ceremony at the shrine at Cloud Recesses on Sunday, the fourth of December, at 2 in the afternoon.

I will not be at The Art of Expression again until Monday.

I know that our faith is not yours, but I would appreciate it if you would join me on Sunday. You may pray to anyone you like for the souls of those who have left us.

Hey guys. So uh, first thing on the docket is that the Sanctuary Fundraiser Event will be next weekend! All day on the 10th we'll have a Solstice-themed fundraiser festival here, come on by! Pet the animals! Donate to a good cause! Get.. spanked?

Speaking of! We're currently looking for um, a designated spanker for the spanking booth Oh my gods why did we. It pays $500, no creepers allowed, and includes a lunch and breaks. So! That's a thing! That came up with when we were drinking and apparently, it raised a lot of money for Silniara Coven at their festival a few years ago, so now we have to do it, I guess! If you're looking to make a little money and get to spank willing people, inquire within.

Unfiltered but cut for potential Ragnarok spoilers, and there probably will be spoilers in comments! )

Emily Dickinson has this poem with the line, "There is no Frigate like a Book." Been one of my favorite quotes of anything since I read it because books got me through a lot. Mostly. Drifted away from reading lately, felt the "sanctuary" of them being worn off by the reality around me.

I guess what I'm trying to say is thanks. To the wild magic that let me stay some time and y'all that make up this place. Most likely won't remember anything when I leave or return home, whatever you call it, but I hope something like the remnants of a dream remains so I keep moving towards the future which doesn't look so bleak after all. So thanks.

Also wish my English teacher could see this so she'd be proven wrong about me paying attention in class. That's a damn good poem, she's just boring teaching it.

Part of me really thought everyone who claimed to have visited the past last year was either high, or playing the most elaborate prank ever and did not invite me to participate (which, rude).

HELLO VALLO OF 2022. (This tech is so old, are you kidding me.)

DAD! Bàba! 'Tis I, Min Weasley, your perfect, talented, fantastic daughter that you never get mad at ever because I'm brilliant, and you love me. Where are your baby faces?

PS no one go the bougie coffee cart in the plaza in the arts district for at least an hour.

I've been working my way up to a little bit of an ask. Usually I'm pretty self-sufficient so asking for help is hard enough but this one almost feels a little embarrassing as well given what I've picked up about it while being here.

Tatooine was so damn dry we had people who farmed moisture out of the air and sold it for rations. We were lucky to get one good rain a year if that. So that being said, the idea of water being free for all, regular rain falls, snow, that's all new to me and, well, I don't know how to swim. Since it doesn't look like I'll be going back anytime soon, I suppose I'd like to learn. Just feels a little strange when it's mostly youngins that are learning.

» To Mister Prompto Argentum,

I will be keeping Lan Huan home from work today, and perhaps, if he is willing, tomorrow as well. I hope you will be able to arrange matters so that he need not worry about anything; please handle that which you can and reschedule anything that needs his personal attention.

If you encounter any difficulties, please contact me directly.

My thanks,
Wm Laurence

To Miss Genya Safin,

Please excuse me if I overstep, and do not hesitate to tell me if I have crossed a line.

Temeraire has recently suffered a grevious injury, and I thought it might cheer his spirits to give him something nice; I was wondering if you might have any recommendations for where one might order a custom eyepatch.


If this is a matter of some delicacy which I've fumbled badly, please do let me know. I hope I've not which to offend or cause you any grief.

Your friend,
Wm. Laurence

You conducted yourself with humility and honour in a realm devoid of both.

Lan Sizhui is skilled, and he has seen more evil than I would wish for him, but I am certain your presence and example soothed.

Thank you.

I will be holding an evening meditation ritual tonight at 5:00pm at Cloud Recesses. It is intended to quiet your mind and allow you to relinquish grievances.

Towels, water, and rabbits will be provided.

Just letting everyone know that tomorrow's Zeph'aeratam classes are going to be cancelled, but we'll be meeting back up again for Thursday's classes. It has been brought to my attention that self care is real important, so this is my attempt at dabbling.

Thanks for understanding!

Now that we're all home, I just wanted to say: hey, I'm Orym. I hadn't met most of you before all of that and there really wasn't time for pleasantries, so now felt like a good time.

Thanks for all the work you guys put in to getting us out of there. You all did real good, for whatever my saying that is worth.

I do apologise to my fellow students for not being able to host the study group for the last few weeks while I was recuperating. I am behind on my studies now, however, so meetings will begin proper from this Thursday night. Hopefully nothing very dreadful happens in the meantime to interrupt. Also please do not be alarmed by my appearance, I am perfectly well, and I am sure the scars will heal up eventually.

My dear friends,

I cannot thank you both for the invaluable assistance you provided over the past week, but I hope I might make a start with dinner.

Lan Huan, Temeraire and I would be honoured if you would come to the Covert for dinner this Saturday at 6:30. If this time proves inconvenient, please do let me know when you can; I'm happy to change anything that needs changing, and please let me know any dietary restrictions you might have so that I may plan accordingly.

Gratefully yours,
Wm. Laurence

Reports of the hole in my chest have been greatly exaggerated. Maybe. I don't know what father and Lance told everyone. Just know it's going to be a really nice scar and I'm going to tattoo Jörmungandr around the jagged edges. Or get Ronan to do it because it's in an inconvenient location.

Thank you to everybody that helped out at the Sanctuary while I was uh, unconscious. I had a little something sent to you guys this morning! I'm on bed rest??? light duty for the next-- Freya, how long am I on light duty? Until the hole uh, fully heals, I guess. Which shouldn't take too long! Score one upside to my godly physique.

[OOC: Sanctuary volunteers that helped out with the animals and stuff during all of the Darkness & whatnot are getting a baked goods basket! Full of pastries and muffins and breads and a few cronuts. It was delivered by a very pleasant gnome woman who may try to become your new grandma.]

Uh hey. So. Like Talcott said, the darkness is from our world. And now the crystal that fuels my family's powers and eventually helped me get rid of the plague that caused all of this is here. It took ten years of me existing inside the crystal at home and everyone suffered that whole time so we obviously want to avoid a repeat.

I've got half an idea about absorbing the crystal's power all at once. I can't take it all by myself but I think me and the guys could bear it together without burning up.

I don't want to risk them without hammering out this idea. So. What I need:
  • Ideas on how to make sure the four of us are linked (The crystal binds us, it's how the guys can pull from my Armiger, but I need to be sure the link is solid)
  • A plan for what to do once we have the power - disperse it like a blanket? Herd all the daemons together and vaporize them? Link the daemons from a distance and vaporize them?
  • Volunteers to fight the daemons that will definitely try to stop us from absorbing the crystal
  • Adopters for all of our animals just in case this doesn't work
  • Someone to tell me the obvious thing that I'm forgetting, whatever it is

My apologies. While I understand this is an all hands on deck type situation, I'm afraid Temeraire was injured last night and I don't know if he's very I'll not be able to leave his side until this blows over.

I thank you for your understanding,
- Wm. Laurence

[Filtered to friends of Laurence and Temeraire]

Friends,

I'm afraid that Temeraire was injured terribly quite severely rather badly last night while protecting the Covert. As such, we'll be remaining at the covert for the time being.

Please remain safe while this damned darkness lasts, but I'm certain that once it is all over, he will happily welcome any who would wish to keep him company, provided he survi if he is while he convalesces.

Your friend,
Wm. Laurence
