Bunnies, Eggs, and my Peeps

In Caledon Tanglewood, there was a huge gathering of tiny sentients.. including small woodland creatures, dragon hatchlings (and pre-hatchlings!)and plush toy golems. Along with the anklebiter crowd and some token humanoids were two larger draconians and a colossal stuffed bear. I stood on guard nervously, fire extinguisher at the ready.

Fire-breathing dragons and a huge, floating sack of cotton and cloth. In Tanglewood.

I need to ask the Governor for a stipend.

Afterwards I was summoned to Steelhead to host an impromptu party. Apparently the citizens take great joy in recolouring large eggs, and my Aunt Lumina and Miss Tensai won first and second place. I think it has something to do with ancient Spring fertility rites, but the behaviour still confounds me.

And Tensai has hidden eggs of temporal energy about the sim, primed for engineering as stargates. Perhaps Miss Orr can find one as a replacement for her broken Time Key.

Afterwards I traveled to Silverscreen to see the fruits of Miss Orr's collaboration with a corporate entity for the film 300. A little searching and you can find some wonderful free weapons, armour, and clothing! We really should have a Toga Party in Steelhead!

My Father and I had just seen the film. I had to ask him hold his tongue several times as he started telling me how different the film was from the actual battle as he remembered it.

But he was adamant that the King Xerxes of Persia did not look like RuPaul.

No, as I remember the original story, he was well into his forties, balding, and rather plain.

King Xerxes, I mean. But oh, did it not make for a visceral image? All those chains...and that voice...and those dagger talons...

...hmm, remind me of Lumina's, actually.

Anyway. Wonderful film. you think I should ask Tensai to help remake my Key? I hadn't thought of that before...

The stone reliefs I have seen show him with a prodigious beard, in any event.

*looks behind her* Yes, some things about that King seemed very familiar..very familiar indeed..

Though I think Lumina has a higher voice. *metallic laugh*

Tensai has indisputably mastered the Correspondence Sphere, she may be proficient in the Time Sphere as well if she was competent enough to make those time-eggs. I *could* get you your own galvanic tesseractor if you wish. Mr. Sputnik has created a GT bracelet that creates the same quantum signature I use. I could make one for you just as easily.

Having seen 300 myself only recently I felt it is possibly the closest I've seen to feeling like I was watching a graphic novel rather than a movie.

As for the historical content, well. I had been nicknaming this the "Greek Braveheart" before it was released. I see now that was being far to generous.

As long as you remember who is narrarating the tale as you see it, and who his audience is, the wild inaccuracies can be dismissed as "not letting the truth getting in the way of a good story".

Miss Qlippothic, this might not be the worst idea. As the key broke across the clasp that held it to the necklace piece, as well, I've been tucking it in various pockets until needed, for the past few months, anyway. Having a bracelet I never have to worry about, it might be a great relief off my mind.

At this point, I'd rather rely on science over spellcraft--too many spells have gone far too wrong, where I'm concerned.

Honestly, when the technology reaches the asymptotic level required for dimensional travel with chronal variation, it is indistinguishable from magic. And I still consider myself a novice compared to certain Gallifreyans of reknown, and I still encounter the classic hazards of time travel.

Speaking of which, I'm told you now have an "evil twin Skippy" as well?
