  1. SUMMARY: Jasper Hildebrand meets with the Lady Sheathe to arrange for the purchase of land that would serve as an expansive venture on behalf of House Penderyn. Villa Meliae, the ancestral estate of the Penderyns, is initially rebuilt and is on its way to full restoration under the guiding hand of the Chamelis family. @Csl
  2. Weeks of stress and toil finally reward them, when the doors to the Villa Meliae finally open to receive its noble lords and ladies into its newly-refurbished halls. The Lady Hildebrand grins without apology for the entire duration of the brief ceremony, conducted only to install the Chamelis family as head of the Penderyn family and thus the new masters of Villa Meliae. “With new authority comes new ways,” she declares, as regal as Varda can be without seeming too much like she’s trying too hard. Either way, it appears as if Jasper’s the only one observing, with the whole lot hanging on to her every word with passionate focus. If there is anything that she is good for, this is one of those worryingly few. “May you lead us and the Gilded Garden to a brighter future.” Lady Abilene Chamelis curtsies low before her, greying head bowing to youthful exuberance, and therein lies something startling: the old bows to the new, nowadays. It is only par for the course that change begins with the coming of a new generation, and in this case, they stand as the morning dawn to whatever new age they are about to usher in. Jasper is reminded once more of the father he has slain, and so he laughs, because oh yes—the old bows to the new, indeed.
  3. As they set out to clear out what little more is left on the land Hildebrand has bought from House Sheathe, the workers stumble upon a much-awaited discovery, hidden amongst the thickest greenery. “We’ve found Daphne’s Rest, my Lord,” the foreman reports to Jasper, who immediately takes it upon himself to grab a horse and make his way to inspect the hidden spring. Upon arrival, he is greeted by towering trees, their leafy arms splayed wide out towards the sky, giant roots twisting and entangling through the shallow banks of the pools. The waters are still as clear and as cool as he remembers, visiting here once or twice in his youth, and if that does not mean a great many things, then—well. “Perhaps there are things even the Tyrant King cannot taint,” he muses under his breath, urging his steed to ride out once more into the open fields, ensuring that none but the chosen of the Penderyns may have access to its hallowed ground. The Chamelis family will need to hear about this.
  4. A week into the reconstruction efforts, the Lady Chamelis travels from her manor to visit the ancestral structure that her family have never called home, not once. He catches her staring out into the half-built ruins and strides over to her side. “What do you make of Villa Meliae, Lady Chamelis?” If one were to look more closely, one would realize that this is not at all an innocent question of any sort, but Jasper poses it with practiced nonchalance. He’d sooner distinguish the inner workings of this woman’s mind before he is to put any amount of faith in her authority. The Lady takes one long glance at the patchwork colored glass windows and then turns away. “Like it needs someone to flick the cobwebs away from our sacred tomes,” is what she replies, and yes, alright, that is acceptable enough.
  5. His interest has long been piqued by the extensive stone walls that encircle the perimeter of Penderyn land, but it is only by walking along the enclosure in person that Jasper begins to think of what it might actually mean, for those living within and without. Is it a matter of keeping suspicious trespassers out or keeping the secrets of fleuromancy in? Is it a matter of only one choice or perhaps the validity of both? It is quite possible that the true answer to this has disappeared along with most of the family secrets when Penderyn had gone underground during the reign of the Tyrant King, but it leaves one telltale clue in the midst of its decrepit state: the written work on fleuromancy had remained safe and unlooted even after years and years: a secret left untouched in the depths of Villa Meliae’s crumbling ruin. Despite himself, Jasper is impressed—perhaps there is some use to the walls after all, even in nonuse as they are.
  6. With the deal struck and the proceedings thereupon transferred into the hands of the most enterprising son of the Hildebrands (at least, he’d like to think himself as such, and all the evidence points to the affirmative), the next matter of business rests on just how quickly the land can be worked on. It takes half a day for the farmers to vacate the area, and by the end of it all, Jasper makes a show of glaring at the group’s retreating backs like they’ve personally wronged him. “If you don’t mind me saying, my Lord,” says the foreman, in a way one would definitely mind the words about to be spoken, “you’ve grown far too impatient in your dealings nowadays.” It is not the man’s place to speak on such a thing, but Jasper humors him. Let him think it mean anything other than an expendable remark. “Time is simply of the essence, my good man,” he retorts, “and I intend to make every last portion of mine worthy.”
  7. Welcome back. : )

      I've missed writing with you, too! I saw you're cleaning your plate off (mostly getting rid of your old plots). If you ever want to write something, you know where to find me.

  9. Boosting this up in case some new folks haven't seen it yet! 😍 Happily taking over from @Csl in handling whatever discussions might sprout from those who might wanna adopt my children. 👀
  10. Hello everyone, vielle here (again)! 🙏

    So: I'm a prodigal daughter on her way back home. I just wanted to apologize to everyone for ghosting all those months ago—it's as @Csl has said: I've taken a leave of absence because I had to focus on stuff irl and also my mental health. Things haven't been the best in that latter aspect, but methinks I'm doing better nowadays. It's kinda tough, having to learn some things the hard way, but that's life for you! Now, I've kinda gotten better at handling my stressors now. 😂

    Which leads me to that elephant in the room: I'm dropping out of past threads, cutting down on new threads, and focusing more on personal plots this time around. Taking up all those past threads and keeping up with them was in fact doable, truly, but I unfortunately overestimated my capacity to stay interested in all the things. It's not that those plots weren't interesting; don't get me wrong! It's just that there's only so much my writing muse can do for me, and though some once thought it of me, I'm not a machine. 😅 So, as I make my slow return, I'll be more particular about the future plots and threads I'll be engaging in, so I can give them my utmost writing efforts to the best of my ability. It's the least I can do for my writing partners; you all deserve the best I can give. ❤️

    By the way, I have not checked Discord yet and probably will continue not checking Discord for the foreseeable future. I'm sorry if anyone sent me any messages over there; I haven't opened it at all over these past few months! 😂 But please know, whatever you may have sent me, I appreciate that you have thought to interact with me at all, even when I was, y'know, away. 🙈

    Overly sentimental stuff aside: I'm (omw) back! I've missed you all dearly. If you would have me back in your good graces, I'd be happy to write with you all again. Gonna do some spring cleaning on my thread tracker (it's a little dusty in there!) and take over handling that character/lore garage sale @Csl was doing for me (thank you so much, bestie!), and then maybe I'll have a cup of tea and look around what's changed here in my absence some more.

    It's kinda great to be back here. ❤️
