  • Honored Miss Urania, there is nothing to forgive. I understand you did not know, and sorting through individual forms of address can be rather daunting, I imagine!

    Oh what a good idea about a journal!

    Good luck with that!

  • Oh Rill-san, I am so sorry! I didn’t mean to be rude, forgive me.

    I believe I will start by keeping a journal on my life day to day, to help see the times that the Tellurian haze over takes me. And I have been meaning to create a shrine, now I have the drive to do so!

  • Rayati Miss Urania,

    I think it is best to start slowly in terms of re-racinating yourself. I know it is tempting to try to do everything at once and jump right in, but that tends to be a shock to one’s system.

    The truth of the matter is that it is not easy to cast off Tellurian habits, particularly if you must interact with Telluria, which most…[Read more]

  • I just started a thread for those who would like to practice Japanese together.

    This is an all Japanese thread so I am starting this one also to allow people to ask questions and have discussion in English.

    I tried to keep it very basic, but if anyone has questions, please ask them here. It’s fine to use Japanese at whatever level you are – so…[Read more]

  • Honored Miss Sanae, Honored Miss Yuriko, thank you so much! Your words have comforted me- I was worried that I was not doing, how to say….that I wasn’t doing ‘all I should’, if that makes even a small amount of sense?

    You are both far more wise than I am, I can only hope to be so with time.

    Please, forgive me for asking so much of your time…[Read more]

  • Honored Miss Urania,

    Goodness me! I am honored by your question, though I think you will get very good advice from many of the maids here– and more sound advice, surely, from those who have been here far longer than I.

    Being a dreamy blonde, I like to imagine Dea in different ways that appeal to me– and strict Filianists may encourage you to…[Read more]

  • Questions are not an inconvenience in the least! We love questions!

    No, I do not think that there is any sort of study plan, or at least as far as I know. We are a tariki (“other power”) tradition rather than a jiriki (“self power”) tradition. It is not that jiriki is bad or wrong, it is just that it is really difficult in the Late Iron Age where…[Read more]

  • Hello again Miss Urania,

    To answer your question, I recommmend our version of the gospel over any other version. I also recommend The Feminine Universe by Miss Alice Lucy Trent. It’s an amazing read, definitely one you have to read a few times.

  • Honored Miss Sanae, please give me your loving indulgence. I have never heard of that authoress! Thank you for the suggestion, I will have to look into purchasing the series.

    I apologize for any inconvenience, but if you would be so kind as to answer a question for me?

    I am most interested in deepening my relationship with Dea, and casting…[Read more]

  • Rayati, and welcome Miss Lynn! I am new as well. So wonderful to see you here!

  • For CLAMP fans might I recomend Kobato? I don’t think there is an English version of the anime but you can see it here with English subtitles if you need them (or Japanese subtitles if you can manage with them).

    I would warn you that the blue dog nuigurumi (stuffed toy) is a very grumpy male thing and the other main male character is pretty…[Read more]

    My profile picture is indeed from CLAMP’s Rayearth! I find their style so lovely.

    I apologize profusely for the late reply, and thank you sincerely for your answer.

  • Honored Miss Urania,

    Please give me your loving indulgence. I apologize for my late welcome as well!

    Oh, I love Tamora Pierce’s work! Sandrilene faToren is so wonderful, isn’t she? I want to take up spinning because of her. I read through Miss Pierce’s work before discovering Chelouranya (and embracing how very blonde I am), though I think…[Read more]

  • Honored minasan,

    Oh, goodness, thank you ever so much! Winter was late arriving this year, but now there is lovely snow on the ground. I do love to layer, and have been acquiring quite a lovely wardrobe of cardigans. I found one this afternoon that is knit and has a piece of (fabric) lace around the hem! I thought it so charming that it was…[Read more]

  • Rayati Miss Venus,
    My racinated wardrobe is developing extremely slowly due to material concerns, so I don’t know if I have the expertise to really speak to this topic, but here are a few thoughts:

    There is a little article here that theorizes that otome-kei is more of a natural philosophical outgrowth of the last racinated Western styles than…[Read more]

  • らヤチみんなさん!

    I have a question about rancinated clothing. Do some brunettes dress “edgier” but still stay rancinated? If so how would that look?

    Would Otome kei be considered rancinated? I’ve been interested in the fashion for its practicality in the workplace.

    Thank you and with love always,
    Venus

  • Ah, how about Sandra faToren, the blonde mage with sewing-magic? She is the immaculate Dutchess!

  • Miss Urania, I love Tamora Pierce! So many adventuring brunettish types! I couldn’t recommend her to the particularly sensitive blondes among us, but she did amazing work considering the age in which she writes!
