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

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

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 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.

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.

...Hi. Apparently I missed a few things? But I'm back just in time for the chaos, which is starting to become a theme.

I see you have a darkness problem and we have a potential idea in the works here to assist the group that will be working on the Crystal. Witches and wizards of the Wizarding World, we need you.

To whom it may concern,

Be advised that I encountered a hostile creature apparently made up of fabric and feathers this morning. It was easy enough to dispense with, with the help of fellow Outlander Miss Lorna Dane, by splitting the seams, but they may prove to be burdensome should the attack in force, or if this is the prelude to some other event.

I am on my way to the offices now to make my report in person.

Yr obt svt,
Wm. Laurence

[Filtered to Temeraire and Lan Xichen]

I will begin by saying I'm completely unharmed and so there is no need to worry unduly, but this morning I encountered a [...] pillow monster. Miss Lorna Dane and I were able to dispense of it easy enough, with no loss of life or limb, but Temeraire, I should like to meet you at the rooftop of Morningside Manor in an hour, if you're free, and we might make a sweep of the island.

Lan Huan, please be sure to keep Shuoyue near today, and call me should you encounter any difficulties.

Pre-orders for the Outlanders and Animals calendars are now available! Please support local arts, models, and animal charities by making a purchase through the Art of Expression website. With the impressive skills of our graphics artist, the calendars are fully modular, allowing you to select one of three options for each month and thus tune it to your own preferences (and to allow you the enjoyment of multiple versions, should you so wish).

[OOC - Here find a sample calendar page: JULY, featuring Lucifer himself with two water monitor lizards on leashes, going for a run in the park in the shortest allowable running shorts]


With Elsa's departure, The Art of Expression is once again in need of a Director of Youth Programs.

This position includes the management of arts activities for young people between the ages of 5 and 18, including Art Camps, classes, and events, as well as facilitating mentorships/apprenticeships in the local artistic community. The work involves more management than it does direct teaching, so while experience with art is preferred, it is not so necessary as experience managing children.

Should you be interested in this role, inquire here or at the office of the Director at The Art of Expression.

I don't think taking on George's business has been good for my heart sanity. He is everywhere in this place. And it is a daily reminder of what a doomed pair we were.

Ugh. Forgive me. I just needed to say this. I would not want anyone else to make sure his life's work received proper care. It is just more difficult to bear than I expected.

At the risk of you saying something lazy and sarcastic, would like some extra hours this week? I want to reorganize the displays. I am tired of hitting my elbow on the Diabolic Daredevil shelf and fearing for my life.

I know everyone is sad/mad/upset right now, so mini kitten adoption event over at the arts centre. There will be snacks and Mario Kart because someone doesn't know what that is.

Check in at front desk and they'll have Captain Morgan take you to where the kittens are causing chaos/enamoring the boss. Apparently you CAN play with the Sacred Lan Hair Ribbon if you're small and chaotic. (I don't recommend trying your chances.)

If you think you're missing an Abi, you're not. She's with me, she had something she wanted to do at the arts centre.

The hockey humans went home several months ago, and after refusing to acknowledge their departure had any effect on my emotional state, after quantitatively reviewing data from my recent performance reliability, I can admit that their disappearance has altered my routine in negative ways (ugh).

I have decided to acquire a miniature carbon-based life form to mind, because even Morgan has his limits with my constant interferences. Because this life form is to take the place of the hockey humans, I have several requirements: I need it to be dumb, because I don't want it to outsmart me, but also I would also ask that it be tough, because I will worry about it when I'm working away from home and I don't want to live in a state of terror about its longevity.

Does anyone know where I can procure the meanest kitten? I want it to be a real asshole. Thank you.

My thanks to all those who participated in the creation of the Outlanders and Animals Calendar, especially those of you who volunteered at the last minute to finish the job for our friends who have gone on to other worlds. Your efforts made a process that could have been stressful smooth as a bolt of silk, and I cannot voice my appreciation enough.

Now the time has come to place orders. Please, Outlanders of Vallo, support the well-being of animals both wild and domestic and the artistic efforts of your compatriots by pre-ordering on the Art of Expression website. The previews I have seen of the work of our photographers are truly beautiful, and accordingly to my brother-in-law, "So hot! And so cute! Some are both!" I believe you will not be disappointed if you take one or more of these calendars into your home.

[Filtered to Alastair, Prompto, and Prue]
All of your work is beautiful, and I consider myself privileged to be able to work on this project with you all. Because it has so exceeded my expectations, I thought that perhaps in addition to the calendars, we might make some of the photographs available as limited edition prints. Would you be interested in doing so, and if so, do you have any particular shots you think would make fine individual pieces of art?

I wish only to say that I am sorry for your loss, and that if your work schedule requires any accommodations accordingly you need only tell me. I hope that you and your family are all well in this difficult time.

Does anyone here have any experience with keeping properties without staying in them? Did you turn them into rentals? Or just make sure they're maintained when no one is staying in them? Whatever path you went with.

The dogs I've suddenly inherited need more running space.

Is there anyone who is not yet participating in the Outlanders and Animals calendar who would be willing to fill in on short notice? Margo Hanson was to pose with the simurgh pups this week, and Xu Shang-Chi was to model with the hedgehogs. No nudity is required. The "vibe" is "saucy, not scandalous" and in some cases simply adorable. Please reach out directly to me if you're potentially available.

Goodness, the weather is still not pleasant (not to state the obvious). I'll be outside the Art of Expression in a chilly sort of bubble though - air pocket, maybe? But there will be a popsicle station, since one of my projects with the kids has included making those and turning them into colorful, rainbow, fruit-laden works of art. Please come by if you're in a popsicle mood.

And I'm going to send Gale out to do some cooling too so if you want a wind spirit to give you a nice breeze, let me know.

I think, during the cool Scottish winters, that the heat emenating from the underground hot springs at the covert would be really quite pleasant; I know I certainly enjoyed it here in the last few weeks of winter when I moved in.

It has rather the opposite effect now. Good Lord.

I seek to fill two full-time paid positions at The Art of Expression:

Assistant Director for Youth Programs: This position oversees all activities designed for those under 18 years old, including Youth Art Camps, children's art classes, and the Artistic Apprentice program. We also aim to expand our programming for children in the coming year, so the ideal candidate will have a creative soul and an enterprising spirit in addition to experience in managing multiple activities simultaneously. Knowledge and skills of the artistic, educational, and organizational varieties are appreciated. The Assistant Director for Youth Programs reports to the Director and supervises a variety of part-time staff.

Assistant to the Director: This position is largely administrative, requiring excellent organizational skills and occasional diplomacy to assist the Director in prioritizing and managing their frequently daunting workload. The ideal candidate will also be familiar with technology, as the Acting Director is not, and be proficient in keeping notes and taking messages. An interest in art of some kind will be helpful, but is not necessarily required.


The Art of Expression is also in need of:
- Part-time instructors in specific art forms. As the center grows and becomes more involved in the community, so too does demand for opportunities to learn. Instructors in musical instruments and sculpture are particularly sought, but I would like to generally expand our list of artists who might be willing to share their craft with children or adults.

- Established artists willing to participate in the Artistic Apprentice program for teenagers. This usually requires a minimum of 1-3 hours per week of working one-on-one with a young person (age 14 to 18) with a serious interest in your art form. This is by nature a small and very focused program, working with young people who have base skills and want to refine them and explore the possibilities of professional artistry in the future.

Good morning, gracious volunteers. All photo shoots are now scheduled for 27th of June through the 2nd of July, and I think we have successfully accommodated everyone's professional and social calendars.

Please see the schedule* posted on my office door at The Art of Expression or on the website to confirm your assigned call times.

When the time comes for shooting, please show the punctuality and preparation that indicate proper respect for one's fellow artists and honor to the artistic process.


* OOC note: We're handwaving this schedule OOC. Just don't talk too specifically about exactly when your call time is. Time slots are morning, afternoon, or night; "behind the camera" folks will be called earlier than models are; assume everyone here is awesome at their jobs. I'll be making an OOC post with more detail for discussing specifics for character whatnots.
