Things have shaken up a bit in my love life.
L has moved away and entered a monogamous relationship, so we’re extra not seeing each other. We still talk and I still owe her a box of her stuff, and I promise I’ll send it next week, sorry, you knew I forgetful when you left it with me. Every time the Big!Andy plushie looks at me out of that box I feel a little guilty.
I’ve also relatively recently started seeing a couple of new folks. I’m going to have to come up with a new anonymizing scheme, though, because at this point there have been three different As mentioned here, and it’s only a matter of time before we double up on initials. What I’ve decided to do is to use the official D&D Name Generator.
Eilella Glimmergaunt (neutral good Elven Loremaster, previously known as “E”) is a grad student at Brown to whom I owe a picnic that keeps either getting rained out or delayed because of my hectic schedule and/or terrible mood. Eilella is lots of fun, but quite shy, which is an interesting contrast with my own boisterous nature. She is very physically affectionate, which is nice; I’m naturally very physical, but I tend to hold it back a little until I determine someone else’s comfort level.
Stoella Tumblebelly (chaotic neutral* Halfling Monk) is a comic artist, ertswhile roller girl, and kung fu nerd in the sense of knowing a lot of kung fu rather than being a huge fan of kung fu movies (the latter may also be true, we haven’t really discussed it). Stoella got me out to my first roller derby match, which was excellent, as was the afterparty; I definitely intend to go to more of these.
I still occasionally see Aliella Serpenthelm (chaotic good human cleric of humanism), who is a good friend but is at least considering monogamy with her prime beau, so hanky panky is on hold and/or over. We have a great time, but this doesn’t count as “seeing” as per my glossary post at this point.
And of course as always there is my soon-to-be-bride, your Other Protagonist, Carrie (Carella Chorster, neutral good human ranger with a feline animal companion, not that she needs the anonymity). We are now two weeks out, scrambling to put the finishing touches on the wedding plan and get the guest list settled (yes, we’re still sort of working on that). She’s also about to take a trip to Rome for the week before the wedding, which is awesome and also hilarious.
There are a few bit players out there who may drift in and out and will get character sheets as appropriate, but this is basically the people with whom I’m romanticosexally involved at the moment. Your mileage may vary, not all ingredients listed, terms subject to change.
(Also, L will be known as Lady Lorasys Woodsoul, neutral half-elf wizard. If you’ve been mentioned before and you want me to update you with a new character, let me know and I’ll add it.)
*Stoella has insisted that she is chaotic neutral, as opposed to the chaotic good that I originally had down. I am not one to get on the bad side of a halfling monk, so I’ve made the requisite change.
