No no, see, one of the Guildhall's magically mysterious properties is that there's no sickness here. Bad germs and viruses physically cannot live inside the Guildhall. This is the one place left on Earth that we don't have to practice social distancing. 

 

Barkeep, I'll have a fantastically large London Fog latte, please.

LOVE LONDON FOG LATTES

Novaurora overhears this and proceeds to run around the guild hall offering EVERYONE hugs

I will take one please! And then I will send virtual ones out...Fortunately I am married and have a live-in hug buddy but I know people living alone who have no one to hug! 😭

I'm going to start a group hug by the fire, and drink a very large violet gin and tonic while I wait for all the other social contact starved people to get here.

 

A violet gin and tonic sounds amazing.

 

G&T is my favorite. Let's keep adding flowers to is.

 

BARKEEP! I will have a butterfly pea flower infused gin and tonic, please.

Both are based on number of posts. Anyone without a custom rank/title has their rank set by number of posts. At 500 posts you'll move up to "Malcontent." At 750 you'll move up to "Seperatist" and get a second dot.

So do I...I have butterfly pea flowers, though, so I could infuse some gin, given sufficient motivation... (all I have to do is put the flowers in the gin and leave it 🙄now that I say this out loud I feel I have no excuse...if I get around to it I will post pictures.)

Jarric walks into the guildhall, grinning at all of the happy hugging people in the room.

 

Pint of the black stuff, barkeep he says and, without looking at the tankard placed in front of him, takes a big swig.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

Well, my friends, after months of unexpected adventures (very nearly getting stranded in New Zealand, and then making it out of Singapore with literally minutes to spare before the lockdowns) I am home. And I am ready to kick ass. 

 

tripped the light fantastic — lotr meme: ten scenes → [3/10 ... 

 

I undertook my journey hoping to grow as a person, figure out what I wanted to do, career-wise and life-wise, get stronger, gain confidence... well, I return no closer to knowing what I want to do. But I am stronger. I am calmer. And going away was the best decision I've ever made, even though I return to lockdowns and an uncertain world, where job hunting is on hard mode. Because I was challenged. Not just with the corona situation. Plenty of other stuff came up that required me to assume responsibility and HANDLE IT ALREADY. And you know what, I did. I was social, I talked freely with people I'd never before met, including nerding out in Ithillien with a fellow enthusiast and ended up eating our lunches together in the spot where Frodo and Sam look down on the Oliphants and Men of Harad, before the badass rangers came to deal with them.

That may be one of the most badass food-related sentences ever written here.

You can play any Phil Collins song you want as long as it doesn't have repetitive lyrics.

DC has been napping in the rafters since the last challenge, it seems. She's about to eagerly hop down for hugs but then.... wafting through the room... Phil Collins.

 

Hood up. Audibly huffing. She scoops the small one literally climbing the walls, saving him from a doomed attempt to retrieve a 6' battle axe from the wall, and retreats.

Dude I literally thought of you at almost the exact moment you posted this. I was getting my yoga clothes on and I started to put on my Batgirl tee, which always makes me think of you.  ❤️
