Shin Seisuka.Plains Of Eve: [Photo-Op.] Shin was my first person-encounter here. He plays the piano for new people, apparantly... but I beat him there-- ha! He seemed kind enough. Found out he owns a cafe, which I thought was interesting. He offered me a free meal if I dropped by later. But even more interesting, he's a mute. He communicated with me by writing notes in a notebook then showing me. I wonder how he manages that; it would drive me crazy. I wonder how he became a mute...Marketplace: [Songs Of Silence.] I made good on my drink offer and we went to the Songs of Silence cafe to get something. Vonte ws with me. Shin offered us free drinks (I sneaked money onto the counter; I don't think he noticed). Then some crazy little girl came in and demanded that he give her the stolen baked goods... I simply couldn't stop laughing. Shin was angry at her, and I felt bad for laughing (I hope he's not upset with me), but I literally could not keep myself from it. I think I laughed for a full five minutes. I could barely breathe. She was just so damn cute and small! So Shin got this plan to cook her some cake that looked to be harmful to your health... I thought maybe she would die. But she didn't. Instead she ate it all in one sitting, and then asked Vonte for a cookie. It was, all in all, an interesting...encounter.Starshell Cove: [Bonfire.] He spoke to me. Shin Seisuka used words to communicate with me. I felt so betrayed, I thought he lied to me about being a mute... I even went so far as to throw a pack of matches at him (pathetic, I know, but it was the only thing I had within reach). He explained that he somehow managed to reteach himself recently, and so... right now I'm choosing to accept his explanation as truth. In the meanwhile, he healed a burn of mine (which I got from the bonfire I had built moments before he arrived). Not with neosporin and a bandaid-- with magic! He can do healing spells, teleport, and make fire balls... I don't know what to make of that. Amazing.Starshell Cove: [ [f] Opening Day Race ] Forget the race-- something weird happened. Before any of us reached the island, the whole damn lake disappeared! It was like the water got drained somehow. To this day I still have no idea what happened... I do know that the impact hurt pretty bad, though. It knocked Shin cold for a bit, but we managed to get him up. I guess it doesn't matter now, because the water seems to have returned.... Was I dreaming?

Kuu Skylight.Plains Of Eve: [Oh~ This Looks Nice.] A tiny boy was leaning up against a tree, and I kind of thought he looked dead-- well... he wasn't. That was good, because I'm not sure what I'd do if I stumbled across a dead body. Bad memories. But anyway. Apparently he models... so I offered him to photograph him sometime-- you know, like a photo-shoot. I've never worked with actual models before, I do things more naturally and don't make people pose-- it just seems so unnatural-- so this could be a bit difficult at first... but I'm excited; I think it will be a good, challenging experience that will help me widen my horizons.

Vonte Undino.Buttercup Meadows: [Field Of Inspiration.] / [Room No. 7.] I really enjoy his company. He's got an interesting point of view on things; I can't help but admire his optimism. He's rather cheerful most of the time, and it rubs off on me, which I like. I feel kind of goofy smiling so much, though. It's kind of like actually having a friend. The sun started settling and I remembered the monsters that came out after dark... I kind of freaked out a little, which was embarrassing. In retrospect I feel like I was being totally dumb. But I obviously can't take it back, so I guess I'll just try not to think too hard about it. But he's staying at the Inn, also-- room 7, to be exact (great-- now I probably seem like a stalker)-- so I hung out there for a while. Oh, I forgot to mention he's an elf. I think that's awesome. His ears are just like mom's... I guess all elf's ears are, though. Vonte is much too kind to me. It sometimes makes me feel bad. But that won't be the last time we meet, I'm sure. I won't let it be. I've got a picture to develop for him, and I think I'll get him some flowers from the field to keep in his room. He seemed awfully fond of them.Buttercup Meadows/Marketplace: [Falling Love Letters.] / [Songs Of Silence.]
He was trying to write a poem for one of his friends, but couldn't seem to decide whether or not he should. I told him he should. And he finally read one of his poems to me... I'm glad he did. I hope that's not the last time he'll do that. That reminds me, I still have to develop that film... but anyway, I showed him the Songs of Silence and we had a drink.

Delphina Coliquet.Starshell Cove: [Swimming.] I found a beach and went swimming (yes, in the fall time), and she came and asked me to hand her a pearl which was floating in the water. She said it was for her bathhouse. She invited me to the reopening of it on Sunday, but I wasn't able to make it. It was kind of her, though. She doesn't really stick out in my mind. The thing I remember most is that poor handshake I was given. I know that may seem silly, but that is my prominent memory of her. I do plan on visiting that bathhouse once I get a spare moment, however. I've never been to one.Marketplace: [Feather Market.] The girl with the exotic name came into my shop today, asking for imp traps. Apparantly she was having an 'imp' problem in her bathhouse. She described it to me; I've never seen anything like how it sounded. Of course my store didn't have any imp traps, but before I could tell her so, my other customer cut in and said he would help her get rid of it. They conversed a bit and Delphina left suddenly before I got to say anything. Oh well. I still need to visit her bathhouse; I'll see her again some time to say hello.Starshell Cove: [ [f] Opening Day Race ] She helped me wake Shin up after he got knocked out by the impact... she was just as confused as I was!

Zeke Loris.Plains Of Eve: [Another Line Of A New Song.] He had no shoes and looked so damn cold. It's weird, I know, because I don't typically go out of my way to help people... but I gave him my jacket and dragged him into town so I could buy him things of his own. Thankfully for him, he cooperated and didn't argue with me at all... which was good on his part. He seemed to think he made me angry or upset at some point, which is untrue. And apparantly he's a song writer. That's interesting. Perhaps Vonte and Zeke could get together and collaborate on something. I don't know.Marketplace: [Feather Market.] I'd forgotten about this... but Zeke told me he'd write me a song. So he came to my store to play it for me. My shoppers enjoyed it too, which is good. It was lovely... I had no idea he could play so well. My family nor I have any musical talent whatsoever... so I can certainly say I envy his ability.

Daisukay Yuudai.Starshell Cove: [Training The Extreme?]
Today was a bad day... I just felt really down. I woke up early, showered and got ready to leave, as if I were going to work or something. But I didn't work that day. It was rainy, and I wound up at the beach somehow. There was some lunatic running in that awful weather... but I guess I shouldn't be talking. Walking in such weather is much the same thing. It looked as though he did karate or something. I'm not sure. I can't remember how to pronounce his name.Marketplace: [Feather Market.] I'd forgotten about this... but Zeke told me he'd write me a song. So he came to my store to play it for me. My shoppers enjoyed it too, which is good. It was lovely... I had no idea he could play so well. My family nor I have any musical talent whatsoever... so I can certainly say I envy his ability.

Lena Archwood.Marketplace: [Feather Market.]
She came in and told me she was interested in a job at my store. Customers poured in and out inbetween our conversation and I felt kind of bad that I had to keep pausing to help out customers. I guess that's what happens when I'm the only employee, though. I'm sure she understood, though. And she seemed patient enough with me, and patience is a very important quality if you want to work at my shop. Anyway, I'll be making up and application soon and send it to her via mailbox. I will probably hire her; I hope this works out. I'm grateful for her interest in helping.

Jin - August 23, 2008 05:52 AM (GMT)
Zachary Wine.Marketplace: [Feather Market.] He came into my store looking for fuel. I had none. I felt bad, and he didn't seem to like me much, which made me feel worse. He seemed pretty impatient. I don't know if he is always like that or just at that moment. He spoke with Delphina some and was considerably kinder towards her, so I suppose it's just me. Ah, well. Such is life. I feel fine now.

Bianca Nakahara.Marketplace: [Feather Market.] She came in to use my phone, and she bought a couple things (I guess she thought maybe if I didn't, I wouldn't let her use my phone?). The girl seemed a bit fake to me... but I guess it's not really of any concern of mine. But I couldn't help noticing she had the most lovely green eyes.Willow Square: [Completely Tired.] I don't know if I could fall asleep in a public place. If I were tired enough... perhaps... but I don't think I would want to. This girl did. On the bench... how uncomfortable. She came into my store, once before this, but we didn't really speak. I remember her face, though.

Urza Eterna.Buttercup Meadows: [Masquerade Ball.] This boy had an interesting mask made out of clock components. Apparently clocks were his hobby, and he plans on opening a clock store here soon. I told him I would visit if he did. He kept checking his watch, though, which I suppose may just be a habit... but it made me feel like a slightly boring person. I meandered away from him after a while.

Blythe Salazar.Marketplace: [Feather Market.] He came in for a job, and on impulse I practically interviewed him on the spot. ...if you can even call that an interview. He seems nice enough, and he seemed to want it. I'm sure he has good work ethic, and I expect good things out of him. I'm so thankful he came in when he did, though. He'll be my first employee, and to be honest, I'm growing weary handling the store on my own... it's alot of work. I don't have enough time and energy and it was wearing me thin. I love my store alot, but I have physical limitations. Thank the goddess for Blythe.Starshell Cove: [ [q] Animal Delivery, Pt 1] This was an experience that I really enjoyed. We had to deliver several animals to a local farm--I never officially met the owners. Nonetheless, I loved the animals, and even the company. I worked with Blythe, and some girl named Lucy, and it wasn't as awkward as I might have expected. I think we worked rather well together, all of us, and considering how many things (animals, rather) we had to handle at once... well, I'm impressed with our work. It was hard, but I would do it again in a heartbeat.Starshell Cove: [Boy In The Water.] I don't know what he was thinking, doing, or what was going on. He wasn't himself at all... This must be some sort of nasty joke... I just wish he would speak to me.
Jin - September 21, 2008 09:44 PM (GMT)
Ariel Tidersson.Featherwood Peak: [The Endless Reverie.] He's an odd fellow, but I think I enjoy his presence. He gave me a bracelet with some sort of strange insignia on it... I wonder who made it... and what do the symbols mean? I wonder if he gives just anyone he meets jewelry. Either way, I'm fine with it. He called himself a prophet. So, in short, he's a fortune teller. To be honest, I don't believe in those sort of things, so it makes me feel a bit odd. He read my palm and told me this: "Here in Feather Valley, something major will happen soon enough. And you shall come to rescue all light." I asked him to explain, but to be honest, his explanation did nothing for me. He also told me that the sun blesses me... He's definately an odd fellow. But we get along alright, I guess.Willow Square: [Loved: Dear or Alive.] I hadn't seen him in so long, I thought that perhaps he had moved without telling me. I'm still not quite sure where he went, or if he even went anywhere, actually. But he wanted a job. I could always use employees--no one is working for me right now, so things get busy-- so I told him we would discuss it at a later date. I'm sure it will work out.

Josie Wilder.Starshell Cove: [At Least It's Not Raining.] I was swimming and I heard a yell. I guess it was just a reflex reaction, but I ran over to her to see what was wrong. I thought she was getting attacked, but apparently she was just having a bad day. Which is fine, because everyone has a bad day now and then. Then it started raining (oh, the irony), and so I showed her to a cave that I used to store my bonfire branches and leaves in (to keep them dry). I noticed that she seems extremely friendly. She grabbed my hand and dragged me around as if we had known each other all our lives. I guess that's just how some people are.

Lucy Thompson.Starshell Cove: [ [q] Animal Delivery, Pt 1] When Blythe and I did the delivery together, there was a girl who showed up to help. She seemed very cheery, and she was very clearly albino. I've never seen a person who was albino before.

Erenoth Dagon.Belladonna Forest: [First Encounter.] Those damn monsters. Perhaps I overreacted--perhaps I am overreacting now--but it gave me such a fright. Who knew they actually existed around here? Luckily Erenoth came along... I'm sure I could have handled it myself, but I'm still glad he was there. He's an interesting person; I'll probably see more of him around. He's so tall....Marketplace: [Feather Market.] My store's roof fell through. That storm messed up a lot of buildings in the village... I'm afraid my store got the brunt of it. Maybe not--I didn't really see the damage to every other place. I was sort of a wreck, too-- but I decided I should start cleaning it right away and get it fixed. Erenoth came around--Goddess bless him--and helped me. It really helped me get in better spirits, and for that, I am thankful. This favor will not be forgotten.

No one.Willow Square: [ [f] Tomato Festival. ] I mostly observed, but oh man. What a festival. It was essentially tag... but with tomatoes instead of actually tagging. Tomatoes flew, shirts were ruined... it was a blast. I was told by a long time villager that it was to celebrate the year's harvest. I hope we have one next year!
Jin - November 4, 2008 09:48 PM (GMT)
Dylan Charleson.Plains Of Eve: [Like A Fairytale...] The thing I remember most was my thought: he is a modern-day romantic-transcendentalist. Maybe I think this just because I've been reading up on those times... but regardless. He seemed nervous, though, maybe as though I'd bite him. I didn't... so I don't know why he was that way. Again... maybe I just have an intimidating personality. Ah, whatever. I don't care anymore.
Erin has forgotten about Dylan Charleson.

Sebastian Noir LeBlanc.Buttercup Meadows: [A Rustle In The Wind.] I like this guy's zest. He's got this attitude--it's sort of hard to explain--but it's alright. He thinks my hair is edgy, which kind of makes me laugh. We walked together, since he was newer, and he let me carry his cat, Bianca. I love her already! She's heavier than she looks--I put her down after a while.
Jin - January 14, 2009 04:25 PM (GMT)
Autumn McCarthy.Marketplace: [While My Guitar Gently Weeps.] Autumn intrigues me. The way he speaks, mostly, I think, but not in a bad way. I don't know if I creeped him out--I hope not-- but he was playing guitar in the square (a song I did not recognize, which is of no surprise), and I was watching. I'm not sure when it happened, but I wound up sitting by his side and he spoke to me. I found out he was relatively new-- I grabbed his guitar strap and showed him around. He's funny.
Jin - May 11, 2009 12:11 AM (GMT)
Roselle Valencia.Plains of Eve: [A Wonderland Like This.] I found a diary in the fields, and I wound up finding its owner, too. I had to open it to find whose name it was, but I don't think she minded... she was pretty happy to have it back. I think she must be new to the area.
Erin has forgotten about Roselle Valencia.
Jin - May 16, 2009 01:14 AM (GMT)
Bran Leabhar.Willow Square: [ [f] Produce Contest. ] Along with the Produce Contest that Feather holds, they have an Animal Contest, too. There were all sorts of animals there-- birds, some dogs, cats. Bran brought his horse. It was gorgeous. He seemed like a good-natured fellow. Maybe I'll run into him some time again.
Jin - December 6, 2009 05:55 AM (GMT)
James Malory.Plains of Eve: [Testing the Earth.] Did you know that different soil suits different plants in different ways? I never thought about it until James told me. He's going to open a vineyard someday... I hope he does it. He's new here, so I took him to the Inn. He's been looking for Feather Valley for two years-- isn't that crazy? James seems like a nice guy, hopefully he'll stick around.Starshell Cove: [Waiting for Warm Water.] [[roleplay in progress.]]
