Letter from Jonn

Dear Aniseed,

Hope you're well. We did miss not having you around at harvest - let's face it, you're more suited to that work than I am. It is a sad truth that you may be a fancy-pants healer who can raise the dead and do all sorts of religious stuff, but at home your biggest asset is that you have strong arms.

Dad threw the last sickle at the necking, so everyone else owes him a favour or a drink by the end of the year. He's looking forward to cashing them in.

Mum and Dad invited me home because a circus was coming to Langbaurgh on Monday. They'd set up at the weekend just south of the village, but then a patrol came along and killed them all. We've got a couple of questions for you, Oh Experienced One.

1) Should we be worried? Or do things like this really just randomly happen?
2) The poster said they had a tiger tamer. We're keeping the sheep and cows penned in for the next few days (and trying to keep the chickens in the barn), but if a tiger eats the livestock, who does Mum write to for compensation?
3) The Defenders or whatever will take care of removing the tents and dealing with the bodies, right? Will they get buried in our village? I can' imagine Grandma being happy at having a grave next to a circus freak.

Mum and Dad send their love and say keep it up with the charity work.

Love,
Jonn

GMs: If anything I've written needs changing to be in line with your lore/plot/history/anything, just let me know :)

Reign of Terror

Wow! Another amazing game - and an intensely powerful, and I think overall positive, experience for Aniseed. Thank you to everyone.

Below is Aniseed's prayer from the first game. There is a big fat trigger warning on it: it has graphic descriptions of violence and gore, very dark themes, self-harm and attempted suicide.

Thank you, Hannah, for coming up with this. She unknowingly hit trigger points for Aniseed again and again, as there's a lot of stuff I've written for her but which hasn't been worth sharing.

ich bin claireyface

Things from today:

  • Shakira seems popular on German radio

  • Queuing in Germany is a very different experience to queuing in Britain

  • I found pictures of my colleague Sebastian on the website for his larp group - http://www.baerensteiner.de/

  • I ate spicy chips today!

  • We compared ways to mess around with someone's computer if they leave it unlocked. Voted the best: screencap their desktop, set it as the background, and remove their icons

  • Being in Germany makes me appreciate just how much French I actually know

  • What does bis mean? That word is everywhere.

  • There's a sign on one road saying 'ich will die Supernanny'. I'm guessing the gentleman pictured is not declaring his intention to continue a career in childcare into his grave?

  • I keep wanting to say dankuwel instead of dankeschern

  • While I was in McDonalds, there was a little girl counting as high as she could in English - fifteen, sixteen, seventeen ... um ... eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-eins, twenty-zwei ...

Thalassa: Deconditioning

Found this while cleaning up my Google Drive. Set shortly after one of Thalassa's deconditioning sessions - the one where, for a moment, she was able to resist the trigger phrase.

At some point this morning, the world changed. )

Andreafic: Fuming

Set as dawn rises on the morning of November 1st - so immediately after the events of Halloween. With apologies, because I think Casper is adorkable.

Aniseed: A prayer

One of the many, many prayers Aniseed murmurs quietly as she spends much of the week in the chapel.

Please tell me I did the right thing. )
