Thanks, Huey and Raven!

This was a fun one. :) I'm looking forward to chipping away at it more as time permits.

Two words (well, if "M:EM: counts as a word...which it probably doesn't.) Anyway...

M:EM Sitcom.

I might do this one myself relatively soon, but, in the meantime...

Write a story wherein Antine uses the Kahvan saber.

I thought I'd pick up my own gauntlet, so to speak. Enjoy!

This reminds me of a debate I had with another D&D player about the viability of using flaming weapons as torches :D

It's good to hear from those two, anyway; is something bigger in the works for them?

@Huey Nomure: Thanks for reading!

:D

This is essentially what Antine did in the Dual-Walker's tower. Granted, the Kahvan Saber just glows rather than actually igniting, but still.

It's good to hear from those two, anyway; is something bigger in the works for them?

I do not currently have any immediate plans for Antine and Sundar. I have one very, very far off idea, but there is just way too much to get to first, and that idea will likely change by the time I get there.

So if you (or anyone in the M:EM) has an idea for them, just let me know! I'd be willing to lend them out for some fun!

“But it looks hard,” Antine whined.

Ain't that just the story of life? :)

Anyway, this was great, Raven!

I find myself wondering whether this was the solution that Sundar expected Antine to arrive at, or not. I think I'm leaning towards yes?

An outline of a Dominian homage of Journey to the West using various Walkers as stand ins as they travel to Janhapuhr.

I mean, it'd be awesome to do the entire thing but... Pft, that ain't happening, so I'd settle for an outline.

Someone pointed out to me recently that light, funny stories have been a little underrepresented around the M:EM of late, which reminded me that we still have a double date in the works. :D

Double Date, Part 2


Previously on:

Double Date, Part 1

So friggin' cute :D

Happy stories are truly underrepresented recently, so it's very cool of you to balance things a bit. Thank you for sharing!

Ooh, I've been looking forward to this! Glad to see Daneera still...appreciates Kerik's physique, even if she is a bit distracted by his but that's not important right now. I will say that if Kerik's last transformation was "barely a week ago," they might be in some trouble, since Kerik said once that: “Sometimes I can go a week or more without transforming. Other times, it can be several nights in a row. I never know. And I have no control over it.” But, he has more control over it now than he used to, so I'm sure everything will be fine!

I was wondering if Daneera and Aloise would know that they had an acquaintance in common. Maybe she'll be invited to Aloise's next Name Day celebration (Also, I realized I missed Aloise's N-Day a couple of weeks ago. So, happy belated Name Day, Aloise!).

Anyway, I'm enjoying this! Thanks for posting!

@ Huey -- Thanks for reading! I'm glad you've enjoyed the story so far. I've been using it as an outlet for silliness and puns, so, needless to say, I'm having fun with it. :D


Ooh, I've been looking forward to this!

Me, too!


Glad to see Daneera still...appreciates Kerik's physique, even if she is a bit distracted by his but that's not important right now.

I actually called Mrs. OL in as a consultant on this:

Me: Mrs. OL, is there ever a wrong time to appreciate a fine rear end?
Mrs. OL: No. It is always the right time to appreciate a fine rear end.

So I will cheerfully defer to her expertise in these matters. :)


I will say that if Kerik's last transformation was "barely a week ago," they might be in some trouble, since Kerik said once that: “Sometimes I can go a week or more without transforming. Other times, it can be several nights in a row. I never know. And I have no control over it.” But, he has more control over it now than he used to, so I'm sure everything will be fine!

See, these are the perils of trying to write stories when you don't have an internet connection to reference previous works... Anyway, I'll have to just tweak that little exchange, hopefully to make it a little less contradictory.

(And, not that this matters, but, in my imaginary timeline, this story is taking place probably somewhere between "Instinct" and "Control," which would seem to imply that Kerik is maybe a little more in charge of when he transforms, but he can't do it on command just yet.)

But, yes, like you said, I'm sure that it won't matter, regardless, and everything will work out fine!

:paranoid:

Sometimes, I really wish we had a category in the Archive for deliberately non-canon work. Because "Aloise's Birthday" is on my short list of my very favorite pieces that I've written -- to this day, it makes me smile.

Anyway, yes, it does seem like Daneera and Aloise are aware of their mutual acquaintance. But, as they seem to be at repeated pains to remind us, that's another story... :D


Anyway, I'm enjoying this! Thanks for posting!

Hey, thank you for putting up with my (good natured, I promise!) misuse of your characters!

An outlet for silliness and puns? See, I do that with my normal stories...

:paranoid:

Do you ever actually call her "Mrs. OL?" Because that would be great.

:D

Yeah, I would say that, based on what we currently know about Daneera and Kerik, this would have to be between "Instinct" and "Control." So he can likely more or less control himself while in werewolf form, but would have no control over the change, which would happen at night. If it happens at all, of course.

But, yes, like you said, I'm sure that it won't matter, regardless, and everything will work out fine!

:paranoid:

I can't wait to see what Kerik orders for dinner. I have my suspicions, of course...

It is a really great story. I'm a little sad that all of my characters were wrapped up in WotW at the time, and hadn't had the opportunity to meet Aloise. But apparently, Daneera has now!

Anyway, yes, it does seem like Daneera and Aloise are aware of their mutual acquaintance. But, as they seem to be at repeated pains to remind us, that's another story... :D

I can just imagine their conversation when they first discussed it.

Daneera: "Wait, you're actually friends with him? Like, share drinks, friendly chat, friends? How?"
Aloise: (looking over at the empty whiskey bottle on her shelf.) "Well, I wouldn't say 'share drinks,' exactly. But he's really a nice guy once you get to know him."
Daneera: "Yeah, you're right. I remember this one time when he sent this arch-demon into my head. Good times."
Aloise: "I'm sure he had his reasons. More tea?"
Daneera: (sighs) "Please."


Anyway, I'm enjoying this! Thanks for posting!

Hey, thank you for putting up with my (good natured, I promise!) misuse of your characters!

Any time!

I'm sure that I must have, when we've been talking about what goes on around these parts. She definitely knows that she is "Mrs. OL" on these boards, and she appears to enjoy the fact that she's something of a character in my rambling asides. She definitely gets a kick out of her Mrs.-Columbo-esque role in them -- often referred to, but never seen.

Maybe I'll have to get her to guest post for me one of these days. That could be funny...

I'm unearthing this because I've a challenge.
In a style similar to the fable vignettes of the original Kamigawa, write a piece that fills in the missing moon kami brothers.
We have kami of the crescent moon and kami of the waning moon so whatever happened to the kami of the new moon or full moon?
