1/2

At the edge of night, lay the vixens three, with fur of ruby, silver and onyx, respectively, seemingly carefree, but ears and golden eyes alert. A stranger soon approached them.

The traveler was dirty and unshaven, but knelt respectfully.

"What do you seek?" asked Ruby, curiously.
"Why are you here?" asked Silver, cautious but kindly.
"And what do you want, human?" asked Onyx, the most critical and dubious of the trio.

"The Boys (Comics) (2)"

Well, I'm sort of surprised there's anything.

The castle was crumbling.

The Royals & Nobles had fled, finding themselves helpless after a curse had vanished every servant, serf & peasant.

Or so they were lead to believe.

Piece by piece the castle was disassembled, its stones used to create new homes. Most of the Royal pleasure gardens were plowed for additional farmland.

Hunting commenced in the plentiful Royal Forests, with no fear of incarceration.

The commoners finally thrived.

@aldersprig "In my day Potions was taught by a professor who was more likely to berate a first year for not already having expert knowledge than to ever offer the slightest assistance, and that was for members of his own house. And we liked it that way! You kids have it so easy today what with your weight reduction charmed cauldrons and air freshening splash guarding hats."

I have a tab open that right now reads BringBackSna

And when I forget it says “Bring Back ,” I think it’s saying “bring Back Snape.”

Whoops accidentally spent 15 minutes reading facebook.

Songs I've had to google to figure out in the last 48 hours:

Going the Distance, by Cake

Ride Wit Me, by Nelly.

I dunno why but I like this bit of the thing I'm for Cal so I'm sharing it completely without context

The Other didn’t like to talk, but that didn’t mean they couldn’t Work. The Words came out half-feral but every bit magic, “Abatu Eperu σίδερο αλυσίδες, σίδερο ράβδος όλα, Zeta!”

Nathen winced. A zeta Working was in their power range, sure, but it was a lot, and he still had healing to do with the reserves they shared.

QT @DialMforMara If you could play only one game for the next year, what would it be?

🎲

OMG

Urm.

I guess it would be the writing game Cal is getting ready for Alpha. Because that's the most useful and entertaining one for me.

🕹️

So @DialMforMara,
what's your favorite thing to do on the weekend?

Siegfried says "there are no unskilled workers, only unvalued workers"

I was cutting through a building today and finally got a picture of this bug display for @Anke

Photo warning: bugs.

And my question for @Jenkar
... Well, I don't quite know you, so... What was your favorite part of the Umbrella Academy?

QT @Jenkar
if you had the ability to make it that, spontaneously, everyone in the world experienced a specific piece of media, what would it be?

📺

Oooh man.

That's a really hard one.

I can think of a couple things.

One of MLK's **Other** speeches.

John Oliver's recent piece on social shaming (no disrespect to the Rev. Doctor meant by putting him in company with John Oliver).

... Those are the only ones I can think of right now.
