hey vass I finally tried gris clair! something about the accord existing apart from the lavender - the tonka, or maybe the amber plus incense - drops it into meat, with the lavender perched on top blending oddly with the slice of loin. as such I can’t connect it to Gregor, not unless he’s been pulled to a cookout in Ezar’s gardens right from his morning shave. (it’s obviously Miles and Ivan’s faults! and it’s happening in the morning because one of them had a shred of rational thought, which claimed that setting fires in the Gardens at 4am was likely to result in a security shutdown rather than delicious burgers.)
this is part of a ten sample pack and I’m near resigned to not loving serge lutens. Vetiver Oriental I’m counting on you.
Something I did with the cut worked until I tried to make edits, at which point it sprang out of control like Feanor leaping into a Finwion argument.

tumblr is disintegrating pixel by pixel and it seems prudent to relocate, so while I can't drag twenty million pictures of vase/demon lords over here, I can put content into categories on my own blog, TWITTER. My account there is collapsing under an onslaught of MXTX fanart that I have to laboriously open from discord, and we hates it (tumblr the company), precious. 
  • twitter: PROS has likes, reblogs, text conversations, low posting activation energy. CONS no tags, hideously public, I hate ads!!!, apparently you aren't supposed to comment on art while retweeting it? but I want to express my emotions QAQ
  • discord: PROS easy to lurk and post on, CONS One Fear (social anxiety), disjointed interests which means that notifications are useless, stepping into conversations is a cirque du soleil routine over gnashing gears
  • Dreamwidth: PROS tags, long text blocks, appears shelf stable, comment chains with icon switching CONS kinda clunky (?), not much of a commonplace book -- actually it's exactly that and wow is it a slight inconvenience. Energy for posting takes at least a month to accrue - I've had this page open for a whole week QAQ also this was supposed to be about perfume QAQ
  • instagram: I haven't figured out posting and being on there caused my enamel pin collection to bloat, I loathe the square format and the video updates, 
  • tumblr: PROS everyone was there QAQ I liked curling up in my collection of cities and treasures QAQ pictures could be opened and saved without being crushed, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM, how do I download my 150k likes QAQ. CONS free pvp zones \o\ everything else /o/

On Monday the Conklin Crescent arrived! - at which point I dove for the deceitful book of nothing-but-bird-flourishes.* I can't do anything credible along those lines yet, but it doesn't matter because this pen makes all of my handwriting lovely. 
The nib can be used unflexed, and is probably the finest I have outside of dip nibs.  In cursive, which is what it was designed for, the line variation is distinctly visible. I wanted to try a vintage flex pen to see if it could be used for everyday practice, and this is it! Good for willow leaves and all sorts of swishes. If it wasn't that I feared for the nib I'd have continued with the bastard hand I favor, but there were also constant hard starts and some railroading (on Rhodia paper), which could also be due to the ink or the way I tried to use it, with letters that aren't connected. Paper with some tooth seems to allow for better flow – plain printer paper did fine.
Smaller than I expected, but a comfortable length when posted. I may leave it uncapped anyway because a) tiny pens!! and b) light is better for practice. Thicker barrels/sections might be good for immortals who need to shelter from heavenly lightning strikes, but it does hurt my hand after a while. The filling mechanism was indeed self-explanatory. There's something like breather holes (?) and engraved initials on the cap. (The letters are much prettier than my own engraver's script ;__;)
All in all, a very pleasing object to hold and admire -- I want to bring it everywhere (but would never, except in the nifty case it was sent in, cushioned with tissue). It's such a good size! (TINY.) Once I wondered at the sense in pen cases, but that was when all my fountain pens were ~$2.50 and made of metal. This pen will be cosseted. I will scribble a little with it every day. Maybe sing 'In My Life' at it, and forbid it from crying for hours while some great blue-footed seabird stands with his head against a tree**. 
* It claimed 150 examples of ribbons, birds, deer, rabbits, etc. I found....ONE (1) rabbit. For variety, there was a section with something other than birds!***
** still haven't read les mis

Your name is MIKODEZ, a cadet of the SHUOS. You are on a RATHER HERETICAL Nirai station in the year 361, as part of an EVEN MORE HERETICAL team of extractors, who are part of a REBELLION against the Hexarchate. What will you do?

  • Ascendancy: Public Welfare is Unchanged
  • Ascendancy: Calendrical Stability is Unchanged, tending to Unorthodox
  • Ascendancy: the Shuos is A Mystery
  • Ascendancy: Rebellion is Alarming


  • ‘Cousin’ Imsayed and the inexplicable glitches
  • Defection of Nirai Remi: locate, assess
  • Alaric as foreign scout/presence on Station Moongray
  • Alternate timeline visitor records
  • Rift Research
  • Increase Trust of Wasp Crew
  • ??

In Rebellion:

Crow: Kel

On Wasp: 2 rahal, 2 kel, 2 quasi-nirai, 1 open andan, no vidona obviously, one suspicious fetch. Yehan secretly Andan? her hair is nice. plus there’s Iawa. asymmetry???)

  • Trusted: Ashari is 1 (hasn’t been stabbed when approaching art piece, good enough)
  • Personal quest: Art Exhibit => ?

  • Trust: Iawa is -2 (are they being /specifically/ highlighted as heretical, or is it all part of station moongray& year 361 flavor/where’re they going with the splutter)
  • Trusted: Iawa is 1 (candied fidget spinners, no side effects from granola tracker :?)
  • Trust: Imsayed is -9 (being briefly crowned with eyes apparently lands one in probational category of future traitors, which, ugh, but where is this going -- guardianship?)
  • Trusted: Imsayed is He Keeps Vanishing Like A Glitch, did someone hack the scenario
  • Personal quest: Avoid having identity stolen/face being gnawed. Determine biological relatedness

Belief in Rebellion is nah

Belief in Hexarchate is compromised

Objective: Is this the real life is this just fantasy
lbr it's got to be the crowned with eyes thing -- another chance to prove more smiling than ocularly separated

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :(

[wait this is Mikodez]
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :D:D:D
