It was a somewhat odd Mirror, Mirror event. People weren't feeling themselves, sicknesses, allergies, late arrivals, non-arrivals, a lot of people going to bed early, missing people due to conflict with Aralis, cold weather, full moon. It all added up to an event that was not bad, but strange.
I myself suffered a 3 1/2 hour period of total apathy on Saturday morning. I woke up at 7:00 (not unusual) and laid in bed for 3 1/2 hours (extremely unusual). I really just had no desire to get up and play the game. At 8:30 when I should have gotten up to be ready in time to go out and play my flute at 9:00 as I usually do, I just didn't have the slightest bit of enthusiasm even for that. I considered several times getting up and just leaving site and going somewhere else for the day, but I couldn't even work up the desire to get out of bed. I wasn't feeling at all sick, just totally apathetic toward everything. I have never felt like that before. Alysha finally talked me out of it, which was a good thing because I had a really good day after that.
Kumir, you are a god among dogs.
Bei Hu - I've got to remember to get a spelling on that - So much of what Mei Shan has said now makes sense.
Mei Shan - She continues to be the best teacher and apprentice all rolled into one - Kumir and I adore her
Story telling with shadow accompaniment - best thing of the whole event - hats off to the two behind the curtain acting out the stories as they were told, absolutely incredible
"We have two healers" (the person counting does not count Kumir in this) "plus Kumir has two life spells" - Since when does having two life spells not get you counted among the healers, to say nothing of Kumir's actual healing? However, I have the best discussions on what Kumir is vs what other people think he is, how it affects him and why he does the things he does that seem to impact peoples' perceptions.
Gnolls give canines a bad name.
The dog jokes were running rampant this weekend, always followed by "Sorry Kumir" or "No offense Kumir". Must have happened at least 5 or 6 times.
It's kind of ironic that the fox is protecting the hound.
Roleplay with so many awesome characters, both PC and NPC.
I really need to get writing on the PEL for this. I'm so tired and my head is so full I can already feel things falling out (things that I hope are not bits of brain; I don't have much of that to spare).
