Journal Entry: October
Iiiiiiit’s spooky month!!! YAY!!! Thaaaat means Hallow’s End and by birthday! Buuuut that also means the barrier between reality and the Void is thin, granted it’s already thin with N’zoth meddling about, speaking of N’zoth, the whispers are still an ongoing thing, but this is a natural thinning! But it’s thinned so that means more purple nasties can cross over and I’ll have to deal with them. Oh well! It’s spooky month and I got stuff to do! I’m so excited! OH! This is the first Hallow’s End I’ll spend with Sidda!!
Today went off mostly without shitshow. No nasties that I know of crossed over and Stormwind is starting to get out their decorations! Oh, and deodorizer because of the stink bombs. I better not get hit this year... The Wickerman is also starting to get set up outside the gates! I can’t wait! Time for bed, I shouldn’t keep Siddy waiting too long!
We just got the news that the War is over! The Fourth War is over between the Alliance and Horde! Apparently King Anduin and Saurfang’s Rebellion managed to out Sylvanas from the position of Warchief. Yeah it sucks that she’s still out there, but at least she doesn’t have the Horde backing her.
Just got more info on the war’s conclusion. Saurfang died. He apparently challenged Sylvanas to a Mak’gora so only one of them had to die instead of sending two armies fighting in Orgrimmar again. Saurfang managed to win in his losing. I was told that before Sylvanas killed him, she proclaimed the Horde was nothing to her, that’s what caused her to have to leave the Horde and no longer be Warchief. I hope that the rest of the Horde doesn’t start turning on remaining Forsaken because of Sylvanas. Though I’m sure I can hide Edward at the University if that happens. Ooohhhh, I should go see Edward, see how he’s holding up with these events! I’ll write a letter right now!!
Jason got a hold of me today. He found a large Twilight Camp at an Azerite Site. Some of Magni’s people had already set up, but they’ve been killed by the Twilights. He wanted my help in getting rid of the Twilights and resecuring the Azerite. Of course I helped him! We went to the camp and got to work. Jason unleashed his Corruption and Agony spells, flinging Seeds of Corruption while his Succubus whipped a lot of the cultists into shape! Though at some point Jason had to take flight and burn a lot of cultists. Meanwhile, I got my claws and tendrils out and got to the fun stuff! Though a couple of them tried to kneel before me, I guess they were newer recruits. Oh well! Jason and I cleared out the camp and resecured the Azerite! I did take a couple pieces for more research. I mean, yeah I already got some pieces I’ve toyed with, but I need a couple pure untainted samples for some tests I want to run.
Sooo Edward got back to me! He wants to meet up at the grave site for his family tomorrow night in Tirisfal. Also I overheard Cynnus talking with Emmy and Elanor about some new experiments she needs blood samples for. She poked me with science, so I’m going to go poke someone else with science to get the samples for her! Anything I can do to help my friends!
I met up with Edward. We had a moment of silence for him to remember his wife and son. After hugging and saying our greetings, I asked him about the war ending and how things were going there. He said he’s not happy that Sylvanas got away and his efforts of duplicity with faking loyalty to her seemed to be for nothing, but he’s glad she is no longer a part of the Horde. He doesn’t believe she’s done yet and will be there ready to act when she rears her head again. For now, he’s going to keep up his act for the most part, try to lure actual Loyalists that remain to out themselves to him, keep a list of people to watch. Edward also said that the Forsaken feel really out of place and screwed over now. Edward wants to try working with Voss to help the Forsaken who feel displaced or abandoned. He’s a good guy, I wish I knew him when he was alive, he says his wife and son would have loved me!
Later today, when I got back to Stormwind, it was about time to get ready for Conclave. Though, I had to talk with Jason about a favor I need as we walked. He’s understandably skeptical and wary about it, but I’ll win him over and get his help! I can be persuasive! Anyway, Conclave went really well! Jason even got on stage and told a spooky story about a viral outbreak! I liked it. I hope others did, too!
Today has been interesting! Firstly, I got Jason’s help with the favor! So we did that quickly today. He’s still wary, but I’ve reassured him things will work out and his assistance will ultimately be in his favor and for the best. Afterwards, the day went pretty smoothly. Stormwind is looking extra spooky with the Ren’dorei helping set up decorations! This is going to be an amazing Hallow’s End! I’m so excited!
Sidda and I went to the Craft Fest in Ironforge! We did a couples costume as Defias. Sidda was the most adorable Defias on Azeroth and I was her Defias Caster lover! We got some things from the Gearshift people. I got some pocket watches, waterguns, figurines, and a coffee maker for the Faculty Lounge! I think we already have one, but it never hurts to have an extra! Then Sidda and I entered the costume contest! I was a spooky Voidling while Sidda was the most adorable and cuddly bear EVER. We both gave it our best shots, but neither of us won. I think someone from Dead Sun won in her Dragon Mother costume. Oh well!
Sidda and I did more couples costuming! We were masked Vigilantes this time! Tonight Maureen also hosted a faculty Hallow’s End Pumpkin Carving event! We drank, ate candy, and carved pumpkins! Cani, Amara, Ariel, Asteria, Siddy, Emmy, Vidri, Ellie, Cynnus, and Vela were there! Even Jess showed up in an adorable Yeti onesie costume! Asteria kept eyeing her, I swear she was formulating ideas for that buttflap the onesie had. I carved two pumpkins! One of them I made a spooky Eldritch design and used a Voidcandle in it after painting it black. Spook-o-lantern! Then I carved one of Sidda and I together! Well, the best I could do of carving Sidda in my arms. It was so much fun! Though, the whispers kept getting to me tonight. They seem to get stronger and louder the closer it gets to the big day. I... don’t like what they say about my friends and family. Thankfully I know how to tune them out for the most part. I won’t give them the satisfaction of repeating what they whispered here.
The Howling Owl had a party tonight! It’s in Caer Darrow. A lot of spooky vendors, even Emmy! I met up with Siddy and Asteria. Tonight Siddy and I didn’t couples costume. But we did walk around the party grounds and looked at the vendors! There was even a tarot reader! We jumped in line to get our tarots read! I wonder if I’ll get the devil card again... Well, we never got to get our tarots read because time for the vendors ran out and we had to gather for the performances, buuuuut we did see Walt! Naturally, we jokingly tormented him and then bystanders joined in. Some guy gave him a Steamy Romance novel and then a Kaldorei lady convinced him to read a page of it outloud, which he did. Well, the Kaldorei lady and everyone else there, but I think the Kaldorei had the most sway. Walt has a weakness for Kaldorei ladies. It. Was. HILARIOUS! Asteria couldn’t stop grinning. Anyway, we gathered for the performances, lovely as always, then broke into a dance party that lasted for hours! I danced with Siddy while Asteria flirted with a Tauren lady. At some point two Nightborne guys started to do a satire performance of Tyrande and Malfurion. It was so funny! Especially when they went to fake kiss, but their chap masks malfunctioned and they kissed for real! Eventually, Elliistra, Cynnus, and other University people showed up once the dancing died down. Even Jason came over! Though, once Elliistra noticed the satire Nightborne, she flipped out on one and Cani had to stop her from committing murder and... Jason watched for amusement. The Whispered also enjoyed Elliistra’s outrage and thirst for blood.
It was my birthday today! I’m 27 now! I spent most of the morning breaking into Quel’thalas with Edward and Emmy’s help to see my parents’ graves for my yearly visit. I caught them up on my life while I carved a pumpkin, ate candy, and cried. I... hear that the veil between the living and dead thin during this time. That carved pumpkins helped guide the spirits home. So... I carved a special pumpkin for them. In hopes they’d hear me and see the rose I left for them. So they knew I still miss and love them. That I haven’t forgotten them. After a while of crying in silence, I had to get going. I hugged Edward and Lillithra before departing.
My birthday wasn’t all downer, though! I did have a lovely date with Siddy!! We went trick or treating! We went to Lion’s Pride Inn, Sentinel Hill, Lakeshire, Darkshire, and then Booty Bay! Sidda was a Demon Huntress! Her costume was so lovely, amazing, awesome, I LOVE it!! She looked so great in it! I was a succubus! I think Sid loved my costume, she couldn’t eyeing it! We had a nice moment of stargazing after Trick or Treating! I love my dates with Sidda, they’re always so much fun!
Today I met up with Edward again! We talked about things postwar. Edward mentioned how there’s a bunch of rumors regarding the Warchief position, some say Thrall’s back at the helm, others say Baine, then there are whispers of them scrapping the idea of a Warchief and instead having a council. Edward personally likes the council idea. He also shared with me an idea to rebuild Stratholme, douse the fires, clear it of hostiles, and rebuilt it! With the Capital destroyed, it would give the displaced Forsaken a familiar place to relocate to, as well as letting any living person who wishes to call themselves Lordaeronian help in the rebuilding and even live in coexistence with the undead Lordaeronians! It sounds like a great idea and a good move towards peace! I told Edward I’d be happy to help spread the word around Stormwind and the University if that idea goes anywhere!
The Azeroth Peace Council had a party tonight! It was in Caer Darrow. I ran into Elliistra before I walked in! It was nice seeing her! I also saw Gotosh when I got in! It’s always nice seeing him! He’s a nice Orc. I mostly lingered on a fountain, Jason even arrived at some point! Him and Cynnus chatted for a while. It’s nice they seem to get along!
Today I had to call another favor on Jason. He wasn’t too happy, but agreed to help quicker than he agreed last time. I won’t say what I did or what I needed his help with, but I will say thank the Void for Elena and her tendency to not question my antics.
Later that night Amara had a faculty gathering near Duskwood for Hallow’s End. She was doing an annual Harvest Witch ceremony with the Wickerman. It was nice! Cani, Sid, Asteria, Jess, Maureen, Elliistra, Ellie, and Emmy, and Elanor were there! Cynnus also arrived later. We were given tiny Wickerman and paper to write our worried on. I wrote… so many worries, though I wrote my worries in a special type of Shath’yar with Voidink. I won’t say every worry I wrote, but some of the bigger worries involved N’zoth, the peace between the Alliance and Horde not lasting, losing control of my powers or the Void inside me, the Naaru and Titans, the others seeing a darker side of me I never want them to see and how they’d react to it, and some other things. The Whispers kept gloating as I wrote my worried. Berating and belittling me as I did. After I told my worries to the Wickerman, Amara spoke some more and we all tossed our Wickermen into the fire pit! Then we played a nice game of Two Truths and a Lie! It was a nice night. I love them all so much.
Final Entry 11
Tonight was the Hallow’s end Spook Conclave! We held it at an extra spooky location and I even got to host it in costume! I was so excited! WE has a lot of great performances! We had an amazing turnout, a nice mixture of Alliance and Horde showing! Though, too bad Edward wasn’t able to make it. I bet he’d have an amazing story to share! But he was busy with some demons causing issues. After the Conclave we chatted and Jason even showed up! He freaked out when Claire started to make everyone look like me. I think he was doing it for comedic effect. But it was nice and a lovely way to end off the Spookiest and bestest month!
