Tadhg too perks up at the mention of the theatre. "Oh, that one! The ocelot just had to see that one, so we did. How did his review put it?

"Of course, that's still a better run than 'All's Well That Ends at Zee.' Not many runs end with the director burning down the theatre so he can get out of his contract."


"I was at that performance!" Dirae Erinyes chimes in. "That's probably why I didn't remember it was bad."
"Mostly because only later did you discover it wasn't in the script." Evensong adds in, not able to resist some loving teasing. " At the time, you thought it was a brilliant meta story about one director's fight against everyone around him, with All's Well that Ends at Zee being a play within a play."
"Well, I think we can all agree the fire was the best part."

Annabelle Doll is seeking a Starveling Cat, because she makes poor life decisions. If you have one in search of a good(?) home, please send it my way.

"well if were comparing disasters an aquantince of mine combined correspondence dance the bell and candle and the concursion of petals, the ministry didn't even have to burn the script, and let us not think of what happened to the performer on opening night."

The fifth victim has fallen.

Walking in Veilgarden has lost his appeal. Behind the pleasant façade hide a world of cruelty, while other's forget themselves in debauchery. Doctor Schlomo has share with me his theory, that everyone has an impulse toward life and an impulse toward death, one that pushes us toward pleasure and the other pushes toward death. I have become convinced that they are the same. We hurt ourself to find pleasure and we get buried in pleasure to hurt ourself. A face in extreme pain is similar to a face in extreme pleasure. This cycle pushes us toward become more and more monstrous until we die. Who will be next?

Evensong regains her glow - this is a topic that is safe from tangled emotions.

the old man equally happy to get away from such topics of discussion (too many bad memorys) throws himself into the conversation with gusto "I must say I haven't seen it, but suffice to say my agents refuse to meet in a theatre in which it is being held for fear of falling asleep, which ironically makes it safe ground for spies so they must meet their for no one expects it, and so the wheel turns."

Ondine smiles at the old man. "Darling, we are all friends here. Or, as I'm told the Americans say, there are no strangers, just friends we haven't met yet."

After a bite of fish, she adds, "And as the zailors zay, it's a long walk back."

The good Preacher stares intently at Six's watch. The following outburts of both the Marchioness and the Old Man find him amused. He looks intently at the glass of scotch the old man has offered him. He clears his throat.

-" Now,now, childe, there must be a certain civility upheld here, Even if only out of respect for our host and his lovely secretary. Having been the first to break that civility,and pending the absence of our dear Ondine so we can,hum, "murder" ourselves, I believe to Have come with a solution- he says, and then, glancing at Ondine,he takes the glass of scotch and pours down some of it content in two other cups. He thens offers one to the old man and the other to the Marchioness. He smiles, and licks with his tongue that little surprise that December had inspired him to put under his mask- Partake we shall of this liquor,I say,until we are drunk enough to properly talk between us! My fair lady, allow me to say that, while I do not support your statements to the whole, I find then comprehensible enough,and apologize if I seemed too intent on defeating them. And,my sweet sire, surely we must save our angers for worse? So, here- He raises his glass- a toast for our beliefs?"

[OOC: Dear Six,you Have me mollified with that watch. Could you PM as to what ítem of the game it is supposed to represent? And Dear Aranea, sorry if we seemed toó belligerent. While the link in your signature does not appear to Work for me, I remember reading it a while ago, so tour reaction is undertansdable. As you may Have picked in,the good Preacher has...double-think. So he may react wildly.Lastly,dear profesor,sorry for the ruckus]

the old man raises his glass equally, "I really do apologise for the ruckus one often forgets one is not in the company of solely ones friends and says rather regrettable comments."

[OOC: I recommend reading the Marchioness' backstory, linked in my signature, so you can understand why her action is so severe. And why her opinions are so monarchist and imperialistic.]


the old man listens to the marchioness's rebuttal, he breaths in and says "god you poor thing, I suppose this is what happens when we demonise our enemies on either side, I know certainly that that sort of thing wasn't what my father nor my mother died for, and yet man hands misery onto man." The old man gives a fading grin "if theirs's any way I can make it up to you"

(I entirely understand the actions however regrettably the old man does not have such a handy guide he most likely wouldn't raise the subject had he known the full details most likely, but the old man thankfully learns from past mistakes and will not mention the land of saints and scholars again in your company, at least not the political side)

The text description of the option says "This will remove any Dreaded or Bizarre your Tattoos give you, and allow you to choose new Tattoos."

So it sounds like it would remove both of your tattoos.

I just looked and the Dreaming in Viric pinned storylet is STILL available in Veilgarden. I got a new dream only about 4 hours ago.



I still have An Arranger of Nuptial Phantasies, I just have had Dreaming in Viric stuck at 3 and haven't drawn the dreams from my deck; is there a different pinned storylet I'm overlooking?

This works just fine with the full layout of Fallen London, but disappears when the mobile version is used. The custom categories disappear and can't be accessed.

It looks like it has to do with the drop-down menu that is added maybe?
