You'd think I'd be helpful in this particular situation, but whatever magic it is making the plants affect people, it doesn't react to mine at all. Maybe just don't touch anything growing out of the ground for a while? And I'd steer clear of Sutton Cottage until it's over, considering the abundance of roses we've got. I'll be taking my own advice; If I get stuck in a true-love's-kiss situation I'm really in trouble.

Oh my! What an experience! I can't say that I would ever choose to switch places with my child self. But now at least I can say that I have some happy memories where there weren't many before. Thank you everyone who took the time to watch out for the younger versions of us all!

Thank you both very much for letting my younger self stay with you the past few days. You both were very kind and I hope I...that is she... wasn't too much trouble (or got under foot too much). As a thank you, I'd like to treat you both to dinner. I can either cook for you at my apartment, or we can go out. Your choice!

Briar? Are you back as well?

If anyone needs activities for children today, the Great Library will be holding Epic Story Time at 2 p.m. in the main stacks. Our tale of choice this afternoon is the Old English story of Beowulf, as told by Miss Heliotrope Undersea. It does have some scary moments, so today's story time is not recommended for children who don't want to hear about monsters being beaten to death.

Are you two doing well enough with your unexpected child? I don't know the first thing about children, but I can send dinner over this evening.

This loud little bloke strolled right into Puddifoot's with me yesterday morning, then followed me straight home after I'd gone through the books. He's officially been here twenty-four hours, has made himself comfortable at the window, and refuses to be shooed away. I suppose that means I have no choice but to accept I have a cat now.



My ears will never be the same. I haven't figured a name yet, but whatever it is should be a comment on his volume, I think.

[ Filtered to People She's Been Friendly With, Feel Free to Assume! Except You Darlington; Keep Out ]

I know this is a breach of the "I don't know you people that well yet" contract, but I need to cosplay as a responsible adult on Friday, so pretend we're besties.

I'm having dinner Friday, somewhere relatively nice. The vibe is straddling the line between "dinner date" and "just friends doing friend things in the wake of unspeakable horrors" and I need an outfit that can pivot. Ordinarily I'd let Mercy dress me but Mercy isn't here, and I haven't had time to buy anything suitable, so. Bestie, help a girl out. Do I go with a black dress or something like top + jeans + heeled boots?

And don't fucking tell Darlington.

Hello.

At approximately 0830 I was taken prisoner by geese.

In accordance with best practices in hostage situations, I attempted to establish a rapport with my captors. I did not get into an ideological or philosophical debate with them (mostly because I can only understand maybe every other word they are saying/honking) but I did provide them with sound, logical, reasonable issues that I think they haven't considered. I am not complaining or being belligerent with them.

I have made MANY observations about them, even though I do not have my notebook. And I know the exact way to get to where we are from where I was, because I was taking notes in my head about the directions.

Also, please do not comply with their demands, because that only rewards VERY bad behavior.

Thank you!

JOURNAL POST 2033 ⇆ 2023


[info]vampirebarbie
[info]valloic
Hello from 2033.
I know there are some anxious people on your end wondering what's been going on - everyone who decided to travel forward with Caleb and Essek have arrived safely and are now situated with us.

As you can see we are able to communicate across the timelines at the moment using the journals some of us managed to keep over the years. If you'd like to check in with your friends and family who travelled feel free to use this entry to do so.

While the journals will be usable for the next while here we are asking for everyone to refrain from spamming too much. All magic usage is a risk, this included. We are also asking that no one mentions any specifics to the plan, the journals on our end will not leave our safe zone, but should we be ambushed here we do not want any details falling into the wrong hands. As well please keep in mind our journal stock is limited and we are all sharing only a handful, your conversations may be viewed by others.

If someone can give me a quick "hey I see this" that would be great. We are fairly confident this should work but let us know for sure.



(( note: timeline wise today this will be written once everyone is back at the outpost and has had enough time to get sorted, so late afternoon/early eveningish ))

This aurora is truly spectacular. I've never seen anything like it. My world has auroras, though rarely in England, but I don't believe they typically last for long, and to have them caused by magic such as this would truly be unheard of.

I'll be making a study of them for the next couple of weeks, I think, and will be happy for any resources anyone might have on the phenomena, especially if anyone has any experience with such a thing in their own worlds.

I've been here in Vallo over a year now - I've fought your monsters, I've befriended my own, I've made new friends, I've lost old ones, I've received new memories, and sold a truly impressive amount of smut (you're welcome, Caleb), and I think - maybe - I might have half a chance to actually stay here. Oh, optimism - I'll admit it's a fun hat to wear, but difficult to truly rally behind, isn't it? We've all lost loved ones, here. It's a cut that stings, week in and week out. We've little power here. No control.

And yet I think the alternative - to have no hope, to live without aim - it may be the most intelligent option, but certainly not the most satisfying. I could never deny myself a light to sail home to once I've found one, foolish though it might be (yes, Edwin, that's you. Very poetic, yes? I hope you're properly besotted). We find ourselves in a strange, cruel, beautiful world, don't we friends?

And so, a year later, both heavier and lighter than before - to many more, and many more.

All that said: how do you feel about my potentially risking my neck from time to time? I'm considering doing the part-time Defense Squad, now that I'm certain that my monster will cause us no harm. I promise to be extremely dashing.
