Mokona no Yume / Re: A Cephiran Calendar & Character Birthdays
« Last post by Milieva on November 05, 2017, 08:09:44 PM »
In addition to the calendar, I also worked out when I want to mark the characters birthdays.  I went by which page they first appeared on, or for some of the multiple characters, what was the first page they spoke on. I just kept charting in a circle, which would be why some of the second half characters turn up in the early months, too.

This is still out of the 13 months system. If you want to have an idea of Earth birthdates, according to my current reckoning for this fic, Festival was on 17 November in 1996. Which means 1st of the 1st month was on 18 November. 

In the first month:
  • Emeraude on the 1st
  • Zagato on the 27th

In the second month:
  • Clef on the 8th
  • Aska & Sang Yung on the 16th
  • Chang Ang on the 17th
    Tarta & Tatra on the 23rd
  • Alcyone was on the 28th

In the third month, Caldina was born on the 22nd. I'm not sure what that is on Chizeta.

I have no one in the fourth month.

In the fifth month:
  • LaFarga on the 8th
  • Presea on the 10th

Again, no one in the sixth month.

In the seventh month, there is only Ferio on the 28th

Then there is no one we know who was born in months eight to eleven.

In month twelve:
  • Ascot on the 3rd
  • All the Autozam boys on the 24th or (Eagle on 25th, Geo on 26th, and Zazu on 27th)

Then Lantis is the only one in the thirteenth month on the 12th.

I got to sleep in!  This was the first Wednesday in months I have been able to sleep past 7 and I feel so much more awake this evening!   

Also brownies!  I made some and they were fantastic!

I'll try to fiddle with things in a bit, if you want?  I can try hosting the images on my server.  There are a few other image host options out there too...
Sorry for the long absence.

I know there is an add-on for Chrome and Firefox that allows to see images stored in Photobucket instead of the ugly grey PB counter..  But maybe not everyone has installed it yet.

If you wish I can send you the images at full resolution (the ones I uploaded are reduced in size) so that you can edit and upload to your server. Just send me a PM if interested.

Or if it is better to upload them in other place just let me know. I could try to fix the links little by little.

It's really awesome to see that you're still around because I haven't seen hardly any posts on my old forum anymore. It's kinda sad, but hopefully I can still come here and visit again.

There were a lot of kids at my house tonight and a gave out almost all of the candy. There's a little bit left, but I have to be sure there is not a lot because I will eat all of the leftovers myself ^_^;; I saw a Harry Potter and a Hermione come to the door, but they were not in the same group together. (I'm kind of a big HP nut too lol)

Honestly there are a lot of ideas thrown around in the chat and forum over the years, but generally I don't think anyone's put a 'limit' on how old someone can become in Cephiro. Though I personally think people die of old age, most average citizens don't have the strength of will power needed to live as long as Clef for example. Their lifespan is likely longer than a person on Earth, but I don't think anyone's immortal.

I think length of life is more 'willpower' related than magic, though I'm sure magic helps.

I've read stories where Cephiro has a low birthrate, because well if you live a long time, you have plenty of time for children later and are in no rush for them. But I think the average citizen doesn't live nowhere near as long as Clef and Emeraude are/were.

I'm participating! I'm writing a new Pokémon fanfic based on Gold/Silver/Crystal, and I'll try to update my other two major fanfics if I get stuck for inspiration, one of which is Rayearth. So I'm definitely a NaNo rebel but productivity is productivity, right?!

If you have anticipated scheduling issues with NaNo, I recommend setting yourself up a plan at Pacemaker :D

If you want me as a writing buddy, I'm Camisado89

So..... It's that time of year again.... 

Who is planning to participate? 

What are you thinking of writing? 

What is even going on?

(For those that may not have heard of it. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. Basically, the goal is to write a 50,000 word ROUGH DRAFT of a novel over the 30 day month of November. Which, for Americans can be a little..... complicated, as there is a big family holiday right in the final stretch. You can join other people in your area with write-ins and things on the NaNoWriMo website.)

If we are not already writing buddies, and you want to add me, I'm Sideshows & Gorillas.

I'm still undecided this year.  As I keep having Sanctuary stuck in my head, I might as well try to finish the next five chapters or something....  Who knows....

Who else is writing this year?
Yami no Yume / Re: Tea Appreciation Post

I'm now running low on one of the teas I really liked from Teavana so I have looked up the ingredients so I could try to work out how to make my own when I am completely out. It was such a nice tea.  But between the fact that they all have 'natural flavor' as an ingredient, and I would have to order rather a lot if I wanted it shipped over, it is more sensible to just put my own together.

There were two that were very nice together, and looking at the ingredients, I can see why.

Samurai Chai Mate:
Green maté, rooibos, cinnamon, candied pineapple pieces (pineapple, sugar), candied papaya pieces (papaya, sugar), orange peels, natural flavor, lemongrass, anise seed, coriander, cardamom.

White Ayurvedic Chai:
White tea, cinnamon, lemongrass, candied pineapple pieces (pineapple, sugar), candied coconut pieces (coconut, sugar), ginger pieces, cloves, natural flavor, black pepper, cardamom.

Though, looking at the website, I see they are now offering a blend of Samurai Chai with a newer blend called Maharaja Chai Which sounds interesting.

Maharaja Chai:
Cinnamon, oolong tea, ginger, carob pieces, chicory root, natural flavor, black pepper, cloves, cardamom.

Again with the natural flavors....  *rolls eyes*  But I will have to play with some of my own blends.  I'll post a recipe if I work out something nice.
