Re: Bonus - MIRROR MINGLING - Fall 2020

"It lasts until.....NOW!" shouts February, as she releases the spell and makes a mad dash from the room and out into the hallway Tarma sighs in relief as the dancing stops. Yes, she really had wanted to learn to moonwalk dance, and thought she had it down pat now, but ... She gazes at the doorway t...

Re: Bonus - MIRROR MINGLING - Fall 2020

"Oh, crud!" and Tarma dodges for real .... and ended up moonwalk dancing.

"How long does this last?" she calls to February, while actually sort of enjoying the 'dance'.

Re: Bonus - MIRROR MINGLING - Fall 2020

Turning at Sindor's 'stage whisper' (which somehow seemed to echo through the room), Tarma grins again and raises her hand showing him the 'shaka' sign. Then she says to Brianna "Good luck, I think you'll enjoy the Exam, really". After that, though, she raises an eyebrow at February (a la Lord Vetin...

Re: Bonus - MIRROR MINGLING - Fall 2020

Tarma, finally finishing the exam, sits upright in her chair and stretches. "Arg" she mutters under her breath, realizing that she'd been sitting in one position, totally focused on the exam, for far too long. She gets up and wanders over to the other side of the room. She sees others, particularly ...

1. Balloons have been around for quite a while, what is your favorite use for balloons? My favorite use for balloons is the beauty of when there are a lot of them in the air, floating, drifting and the colourful groupings of 8 to 15 balloons is just sort of wondrous to see. I remember the first time...

January Prompt: A New Year Rises

That's what 'New Year Resolutions' are somewhat about. But it's also an opportunity to look again at things and maybe, from a different vantage point, t...
