The Crazy at Trimaris [Sep. 29th, 2004|11:19 am]
Iakovos Zorbas
So yesteray I went to see the new ship come into Trimaris, and to see it shoot its cannons and stuff, and that was pretty cool and all, except then a giant seamonster attacked. There's some other people who wrote about it and know more of what happened then I do, cause all I did was get grabbed by a tentacle and then whack it a lot with a tentpole I found. Eventually it let go and went away; I'm not really sure why. the_jade_moon says that at least one person died. Um. Not really sure what else to say.

[Friends-Locked] Supercool Singing [Sep. 17th, 2004|02:06 pm]

Dude! Today down at Garfield Park we were playing football and all the sudden you could hear this whole marching band playing, and I started singing about football and how it was cool and stuff. It was totally like something out of a musical. Mama watches them all the time (I don't watch them really, I'm just in the same room). But it was supercool, cause I was jumping around and singing and everybody just watched and maybe some people were kind of weirded out but it was still AWESOME.

We should probably do something about this, cause it'll probably start sucking when people start asking kind of uncomfortable questions. I'll prolly end up singing in class or something, and that would be bad. It wasn't Miss Daniels, though, cause that felt different. This is something else.

Had a singing scene, was vastly amused. Warning: It's not good, but it was a lot more fun than I'd expected. Archiving it here.

Cocoa and the Rats of Nimh and Other Stuff [Aug. 23rd, 2004|02:43 pm]

[Current Music |Fingertips -- They Might Be Giants]

So the Snelling people sent a card saying that Mister Patrakis was avenged, and they sent along some dross that the murderers had. Itza came up to the Forest to show me, and we decided that we'd make it into the Nicholas Patrakis Memorial Relief Fund, for helping out people when they need it.

Then Itza and I sat down and talked about Timeheart and about school and other things, and then we went downstairs to the Homestead and she read Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh while we drank hot cocoa. It felt nice to be able to do stuff like that again.

Itza's made me real angry a lot ever since Mister Patrakis got murdered, but I guess if things are really hard on people, then when those people try to talk, it's even harder than just one of them. I've been tryin to be nice to her and not say things that would get her all riled up, and maybe we're both okay, now, or at least a little better. I wonder if things were hard on Rachel, too.

Timeheart also said that I couldn't go try to trade seeds with Butterflies, and that I shouldn't even talk with them or breathe their air, cause the land there is cursed. I'm pretty sure that Squire Abigail has a LiveJournal, so if you're reading this, that's why I can't help you go find a new balefire, cause it's dangerous for Timeheart.

I dunno what else to say, it's real late and I just barely didn't get in trouble for staying up listening to Rats of Nimh until past my curfew, cause then Papa started saying my curfew should be later and all sorts of other things, and when he put me to bed he said the two of us should go camping sometime soon so we could talk. I think if I was more awake that would be something I'd kind of worry about, but I think I'm just gonna go to bed.

Looking Forward [Aug. 18th, 2004|09:42 am]

Soccer All Stars is coming up in the next coupla weeks, so I'm going to be going all around to other cities like Aptos and Felton and stuff. I got one of the Forward slots, which is pretty cool, but Coach keeps saying I'd make a good goalie. Goalie is dumb. You don't get to run around and you can use your hands, and that's not soccer.

I'm getting kind of settled in with the Forest. I made a schedule of chores for myself just like we use at home, so on Mondays I 'do the walk' and make sure the trees are okay. On Tuesdays I go around with hook and crook to harvest firewood. On Wednesdays I water the flower beds. On Thursday I clean out the pond. On Friday I go around and harvest fruit and vegetables, cause sometimes that takes a little longer and I never have homework on Fridays. On Saturday and Sunday I go around and water and weed the flowerbeds, and cut the grass -- that takes forever. Every day I throw out seed for the birds and feed the fish. I restarted the mulch pile out around the back of the waterfall cliff, and the mulch is almost ready to be used, which is good, cause the flowers are looking kind of sad.

My birthday is coming up pretty soon -- I'm going to be twelve -- and Mama keeps asking me what I want for presents. I don't know. I've got all the stuff that I'd ever want. And if I get more stuff, that just means there's gonna be more things to clean up in my room, and that never happens anyway. We're going to be in Felton for a game on my birthday, so I just asked if me and the soccer team could go out for pizza while we're there. I can't believe it's March already!

Mister Patrakis is Avenged [Aug. 16th, 2004|12:56 pm]

[This post is ICly locked to the following: hopeless_lady, just_alais, kupkakekutie, ladyoblivious, melitha, minitaur, and queen_of_ithaca]

So the other day aculeus took some people (fuzzymamma, frankengirl, selkiebelle, and enhydralutris) down to Monterey to get the killers who murdered Mister Patrakis.

I guess Drina (that's enhydralutris) got clawed up real bad, so I'm gonna take her some lavender oil and berries when she's awake to say thank you. I feel bad she got hurt. I feel like I shoulda been the one. Specially cause I woulda been fine again before we got back to Santa Cruz. Itza's all messed up, too. Not hurt, but you can tell it really bothered her to go have to fight and hurt other people. None of the murderers survived. And I feel bad that Itza had to do that, because Itza shouldn't have had to. I shoulda been there instead.

Thistle says I wasn't asked to go because he wasn't sure I could be sneaky or follow orders. He thinks I can't follow orders because I didn't follow the Countess's orders, or the Viscountess's orders, when I'm not one of their people to begin with. Am I just supposed to do whatever somebody with a title tells me to do? Cause that's not how Mister Patrakis explained it to me. He said you smile and cooperate when you can, sure, but you don't gotta. And I was bein used, and I wasn't going to stand up for that any more. Me and the Viscountess had an agreement that we'd share information and she didn't, so then I put my foot down and didn't tell them what else I knew until they told me what they knew.

It feels like I don't get to stand up for myself. If I do, then I'm not allowed to do stuff. And this isn't stuff like 'go to the party' or anything, this is stuff like seeking justice, and avenging my mentor. I didn't use Christmas money to buy a bus ticket to Monterey and back because I told the Countess I'd trust her to take care of it. I'm trying to work with them. They haven't worked with me unless I stomp my feet and throw a hissy fit.

People got hurt doing something that I should have been doing. He was my mentor, it was my responsibility to avenge him. But I wasn't allowed to do it because I stood up for myself. I should have done something different, but I can't figure out what.

Okay, so yeah. I'm a girl, too.

We have to fix this before two o'clock this afternoon, because I just called home and Mama wants me back before then, cause she wants to go shopping with me, and she kept going on and on about how my bras have been too tight and maybe it's time to go get a 'real' bra and I don't want to go bra shopping with Mama!

Wake [Jul. 8th, 2004|04:18 pm]
Iakovos Zorbas
[Current Mood |satisfiedsatisfied]

So I missed the Rose Parade this year cause I spent the night at Timeheart cause I told my parents that I was spending the night at a schoolfriend's party cause I had to go to Elis for the New Years' Eve party cause that was where Mister Patrakis' wake was. And there's no teevee in Timeheart, which is prolly a good thing.

The party was kind of boring, except for the fireworks, and they only lasted so long. We had the wake part of things towards the end. The Viscountess called me forward to give a toast, and I said how Mister Patrakis was a good man who talked to you like you mattered and that was better than anything else I could say, and then... well, at first everybody just sort of nodded and looked at the ground, which was kind of weird cause that's not what I thought was supposed to happen at a wake, but after a little encouragement, everybody was shouting toasts and singing, and it felt real good. I hope Mister Patrakis could hear us on the Bright Road, cause that'll remind him what he's coming back to.

The Wake is supposed to be for the guy you're sending off, not the people who are doing the send-off, but I gotta say, I do feel a little better afterwards, just like I felt a little better after the funeral in Santa Cruz. Mister Patrakis is on the Bright Road, and after everything is over, he'll be in heaven with the angels. And that makes me feel better.
