Jewell's player had a fantastic idea (she always has such clever and amazing ones!)to have a thread in her folder where you can post "vapor play". So this is my riff on it.

This is where you'd post that your character and Eless had some sort of interaction, so that when you meet up in the Inn you can play with that if you wish. I'm not a control freak.

Examples of Acceptable Assumptions (These are not the only charries Eless interacts with.):

Jewell and Eless went shopping one afternoon at Koy's.
Rena and Eless met for coffee and brunch Sunday morning.
Your character purchased a more "generic" or seasonal item from Heart Notes.
Your charity event needs a donation or a door prize from Heart Notes.

Etc.

Unacceptable Assumptions:

If Eless and your character have NEVER interacted in public, then a private interaction would not be more than a simple passing.

Please do not write anything that would pertain to Eless healing your character or using her magical abilities.

Also do not come up with your own "custom" fragrance, please. I work really hard and do actual research for them.


If you're in doubt, drop me a message!

December 15th-18th 2014

Jewell and Eless went shopping this week. Jewell sought advice from Eless on
what kind of present you should buy a guy when you might be in his "friend zone".

1. Eless will have retrieved the rest of her personal belongings from Luke's place, still concerned about him and Bandito.

2. Eless will have had a bunch of new, warm woolen hats, scarves and gloves to Eva's clinic. Nothing fancy -- simple, yet cheerful colors in a variety of colors. She'd bring toys an books for the waiting room when she visits.

During the Weekend of February 21st:

Eless and Jewell would have had lunch to discuss plans for Fashion Week which would then shift to sharing their current personal lives. Eless would have shared the details and risks of her pregnancy. Jewell would have shared some more personal details of her life and her upcoming trip as well.

Eva was in attendance at the Rise and Shine: Breakfast & Beauty Tips event, wearing an outfit of no particular note, mostly to support her friends, but maybe also to get some tips from Koy about how to use makeup to cover-up bruises.

At the end of the event, she waited around, hoping to catch Eless alone to see how she's doing.

Jewell stopped by to see Eless before heading off to the IFL Powerhouse Party. She may have brought her dumplings from this great food truck she loved.

He was certain Eless had worn herself out filling orders for the saint's holiday on the morrow. He stopped by her home just before the dawn not wishing to disturb her slumber, if she were sleeping, nor interrupt her if she were still toiling.

He sat by her door for a long while, reflecting on how much she meant to him; how much she gave him hope when all else was lost. He imagined the day when they would be together, hand in hand as husband and wife taking the rest they both so very much needed and deserved.

When she ventured out the next morning, Eless would find a candle (one of Rena's, of course) with layers of blue, tan and white - resembling an ocean landscape. The scent would be of soothing ocean breezes under a warming summer sun. A small bit of soft cotton rope would be tied around the candle, a few knots and loops, creating the startings of a hammock.

Eless had indeed finally succumbed to the strain of the extended holiday season's work as well as the after effects of the battle with Calonderial and having her baby ripped from her by his father.

Connar's thoughtful gift will have a position of honour on her nightstand along with some of the other treasures he's gifted her over the years.

After lunch with Lirssa, Jewell stopped by to steal Eless for mid-afternoon tea or coffee.

Or a drink. It was five o'clock somewhere in the city!

A note arrived late in the afternoon for Eless.

I'm alive. Well enough. No new injuries.

No need to pass along the message I gave you the other day.

xoxo

19 degrees, a stiff wind and snow. A night not fit for man or beast.

And he stood watch on one of the roofs across from the Parfumerie. The heavy oilskin duster was closed, the collar lifted to protect his cheeks somewhat from the biting wind. After what he had been told during the evening his overprotective streak kicked in. He had escorted Elessaria from the Winters Ball, and after making certain she was safely inside her home he had slipped into the shadows, reappearing on his perch. He stayed, standing in the lee of a jutting chimney until the darkness started to turn to a dirty grey, then again slipped into the Weave, heading for the Mercyvian embassy and home through the portal.

The gift was a few days late for Yule, though that could be blamed on the vagaries of the winds of magic and how they controlled multi-dimensional travel. The package was delivered to the doorstep of the shop. Within was four bolts of Orphilian silks of various colors, a selection of teas, and a smaller box containing flame lilies, a flower coming into season along Carowyn's equatorial realms.

There was also a letter from Cieara, detailing things that had happened since she and Eless had last seen each other.

Sometime After Beltane (2018)...


The Empath entered Mamma GiGi's Gelato e Dolci and was immediately overwhelmed by the delicious scents of sweets that wafted along the warm, afternoon breeze. The displays were equally overwhelming and the diminutive elfess strolled up to the sparkling clean counter top, accompanied by Lyavain on her left and a wheeled suitcase trailing slightly behind her on her right. When asked what she wanted, Eless managed to surprise the older lady with silver-streaked, black hair, pulled back into a tight bun. "Yes, a pint of every flavor, "she repeated rather seriously. "And an assortment of thy best-selling sweets as well, please." Mamma GiGi immediately began to call out the order to the three young girls assisting her behind the counter and they, too, did a double-take. "Would it be possible to have it delivered as soon as it is prepared?" Eless added hopefully.

The woman wiped her hands on her apron and nodded, "Si...Si. Not a problem, signorina."

"Terrific! Grazie!" Elessaria quickly wrote out the address on the back of a receipt and handed it over to the ecstatic shop over along with her payment, including extra for tips.

The blue flames in her eager gaze sparkled with excitement as she waved her farewells, and exited the now bustling shop, still trailing the suitcase behind her. Lyavain led the way to the Empress' home where the Empath planned to catch up with her dear friend over delicious treats. In the suitcase where three sets of sumptuously soft pajamas in vibrant animal prints. (The third in case Sapphire was visiting as well.) In addition, Eless had included other goodies for pampering including a selection of her Skin Silks, and the necessities for manis and pedis.

There was quite a lot for them to catch up on...

PostPosted: Wed Jun 13, 2018 12:06 am    Post subject: Putting the sun to shame Reply with quote

The captain of the Cardinal’s guard took great pleasure in berating and insulting the soldiers under his command. In this latest round of verbal assaults, the captain had accused his men of being too soft on the brigands they had encountered earlier in the day, many of them musketeers. He wondered why, in particular, did so many of those who fell under Jacques' blade fail to suffer mortal wounds. Connar still was not accustomed to hearing that name. He had stopped using his given name; it carried far too much history and baggage. He could no longer claim it to be an old family name or mere coincidence. His name was known for good and for evil, and served only to make life even more difficult. So, he borrowed a name equally close to his heart: Jacques Devabriel.

Somewhere between the captain’s vile words carried in the shower of spittle and the slow setting of the sun, Connar’s mind escaped to its quiet place, to a refuge of soft breezes, the scent of freesia, and the soothing voice of the empath.

He imagined himself outside her home, waiting patiently for the morning sun to crest the horizon. Birds and animals would begin to stir, adding their songs and calls to the rising din of a new day. He would draw random shapes and patterns in the soft dirt where he knelt, casting his gaze toward her door with any new sound or movement. Just as the rays of light shone upon her home, the door would open, and she would fill the area with an aura to put the sun to shame. Like a drowning man’s first desperate gasp of air, his entire being focused solely on her. The way the light danced in golden rays across her hair, the suppleness of her skin, soft, rose-tinted lips, and eyes whose color and depths could not be contained behind dark lashes. She moved so gracefully but with purpose; her toes barely lighting upon the ground. Her lack of footwear would come as no surprise, but it would cause a smile to come to his lips all the same.

He dare not rush from his hiding place, though tis all his heart yearned for him to do. He feared the sudden movement would startle her, or worse yet, cause the furry beast guarding her and her home to set after him, an unstoppable blur of fangs and claws. And yet she remained the apparition of love, goodness, beauty, and hope that brought peace to his soul.

Years had passed within her realm and centuries in his since they were last truly together. He was a prisoner of his world and godforsaken duty. And though he had spent year after year thinking of this exact moment, this encounter in time, he was at a loss for words. What could he possibly say to her to make up for the time, for loneliness she had to endure, for waiting and waiting with no end in sight? To see her now caused his heart to swell with love and rend itself in twain with guilt.

A rough backhanded slap from the captain brought him back to the present. His teeth slowly clenched as his gaze locked with his attacker. “Merci, for joining us Devabriel. I pray that I wasn’t boring you,†the captain sneered. “Lest you have someplace better God prefers you to be than right here, I suggest you give me your full attention!"
