As far as I'm concerned, Spooky Season began last month, but Bossman made us wait until October to let start hosting fun events at the Art of Expression. SO, along with my lovely co-host Abi, I will be hosting "Too Cute to Spook." Each Tuesday from 5 PM to 7 PM will feature a different event for kids and their adults, free of charge for admission, but donations to charity encouraged and accepted!

10/4 - Face Painting & Creepy Baking - Featuring the talents of our various art instructors and the very handsome Ignis Scientia.
10/11 - Haunted Mini-Carnival - We'll have a merry-go-round, Ferris wheel, and bumper cars! EDIT: And I've gotten our AMAZING bossman, Lan Xichen, to agree to sit for the dunk tank. Come give it your best shot!
10/18 - Find Your Inner Boo - This is a chance to create your costumes from scratch with Abi Blyg directing you lost souls.
10/25 - Monster Parade - Kids will get to enter a costume contest and walk a runway. Photos taken by yours truly! Everyone goes home a winner with a custom made superlative, but be sure to hit up the food booths for ghoulish brews and sandwitches before you head home!

We're hoping for a great turn out, so please spread the word to your Valloian friends!

I've picked a date for my housewarming party.  It'll be in two weeks on the 15th, starting at 7:30pm.   It's open to everyone who uses this network.  Please r.s.v.p if you'll be there, so I know how many people to expect.   It's going to be very simple, just a chance to see Hannibal's my house and hopefully meet some more of you.

Added later My address is [address and directions from the nearest waypoint.]

Eliot

Was this enough notice?  I really hope you can make it!

I'm reaching out to Enki, but calling all space/engineering nerds. I have a Galra fighter from our world that showed up a little while ago that we're working on repairing. DOA is aware of it, but I'd like to get it operational because it's really fast and Shiro wants to fly it to be able to use it in future Vallo incidents. Left wing is damaged from a battle in our world and weapons systems are down, but it looks like our biggest issue is the power source. That was damaged in the battle too and it seems like it's only capable of powering on, but not actual flight.

I can't pay much, but I'll make it right somehow if you can help.

I've been told multiple times that all of this is very real and I haven't actually gone insane, but color me skeptical still.

In the spirit of not making things worse by sitting in a room by myself all the time- Hi. I'm Emily and I'm new here. I don't really know what else to Any suggestions on how to ease into this place as someone whose experience with magic and the supernatural is limited to one old lady who occasionally gets visions and TV shows.

Hypothetically, if one were to have come upon a new restaurant they'd never seen before and thought it might be a nice place to try lunch, so they stopped and ate a rather hearty meal and a nice pudding for dessert, and then they found that the restaurant seemingly disappeared right after they left, and then said lunchgoer found themselves unable to stop walking in circles around the block while whistling an earworm for the next few hours...

On a scale of 1 to definitely bamboozled by fairies, how bad is their hypothetical predicament?

PRINCESS SQUAD
I had a thought that I wanted to run past you all. Maybe it's super dumb, so please tell me if it is, since this isn't home and I know people don't necessarily care about the same things here as we door back home. BUT I DON'T KNOW. I just feel like we've all, each of us, been through so much in recent months and we really, really need something happy to focus on and look forward to. And honestly? I just really want an excuse to buy a really extra dress and feel pretty and somewhat normal for a few hours.

What do you all think about hosting a Princess Prom here in Vallo? At Bright Moon Castle.

Is that totally dumb? Or maybe potentially a good idea?

I think this is where I'm supposed to post this? If it's not, I'm sorry.

I'm Henry and I'm new here. I'm not really sure how I got here, or why, but I guess I live here now? At least, that's kind of the impression I got from the people who came and got me. At least they gave me a place to stay. Also I got to meet a good friend of mine I haven't seen in a while and her not-boyfriend, so that's a plus.

I'm not good at these introduction posts...

It's been a little over a month since I've had gainful employment and here are a few things that I have learned.

1. Magic, as it turns out, continues to be very cool.
2. So does having a steady paycheck.
3. People really will haggle over anything if you give them the chance. I don't know if that's just specific to working in a magic shop, because I really don't see people haggling over things at the grocery store or anything, but it definitely happens. Which is unfortunate, because
4. I'm still struggling with methods to put my foot down that aren't just a smiling all charming until they get the hint.
5. Somehow Unseen Servants, despite that they are unseen, have very distinct personalities? Benedict is my favorite, but don't tell Rodrigo or Esmerelda.
6. The ombre potion wall is more than just pretty and it's real important to remember which potion does what and is where. It's also real important to not knock any of them over. Not that I have! But I've seen some close calls and it's stressful every time.
7. Prestidigitation? Super helpful.
8. The bakery across the way from the shop has really good cinnamon rolls.

Anyway, those are my life lessons, some more valid than others. If you want to see me in action, you should come to Gilmore's and buy some things in honor of 1 and 2 on this list.

Hey, the race was great! I didn't expect to win at all, so placing in the middle was fine by me. I didn't know what to expect and some of those sections were amazing. I didn't know I could drive UNDER WATER!

You know what wasn't so great? Getting home after and finding out that my roommate had disappeared on me. Guess he's gone for good now.

So, uh. Anyone wanna come over for some food? I mighta stressed cooked and baked a bit too much.

Does anyone have one of the large Havahart traps?

Or a trap big enough for a two faced demonic doll with homicidal tendencies. No, stabbing or shooting it will not work with it being full of stuffing.

The Book of the Dead is also missing so just leave it outside the Library door and send me a text. Thanks.

I was thinking that it had been some time since we had a family gathering, for no reason other than just enjoying one another's company. We could host here at Lotus Pier, of course, with dinner and refreshments served. Perhaps October 3, if that is not too late of notice for all?
