Shining Tea Room

  • Rayati honored Miss Dahlia,
    Welcome! Please give me your loving indulgence. I’m so glad you feel that way – it’s such a relief to have a refuge from such a cruel time and place.
    In Amity,
    Rosamunda Elefarya

  • Honored Miss Rill,
    Please grant me your loving indulgence. I must admit that I don’t yet understand the use of titles or honorifics, so forgive me if I ever make a mistake, as I feel I am bound to do.
    I am a young tellurian brunette, seeking shelter from the harsh and coarse environment of the current patrarchal Telluria. I must say, reading a…[Read more]

  • So sorry for long my delay in replying. I’ve been rather busy.

    Yes if you would like to send me the document I could take a look and advise you and ask around if necessary.

  • Rayati Honored Miss Dahlia,

    Please give me your loving indulgence.

    Welcome to Shining World. I am glad that you came to join us.

    If you would like, please let us know a little more about you. We would love to get to know you better. Also, please feel free to ask any questions that you might have.

    Ah, I had intended to paste that url into the bottom of my post, but it didn’t seem to catch… I’m quite useless when it comes to technology, I’m afraid! Thank you for referring to it, Elfarya-chei (and also for having compiled it to begin with!)

    Sushuri-chei – If it is permissible and agreed upon by the maids who wrote the materials, I would…[Read more]

  • I didn’t have anything on All Girl Worlds, but I remember it fondly, and aside from the Sun Daughter Reading Room things (which I really want people to go to the Sun Daughter Press site for!), and that one odd extra-discipliny piece, I would be glad to see the old stories up again.

  • Actually, and I know this is confusing, Elefarya is the surname and while Miss is just fine, I am usually addressed as -chei. Thank you for your understanding, Miss Urania.

  • Thank you for your delicacy in realizing that there might be reasons for not re-publishing material, and that since it is the copyright of its creators it should not be wantonly appropriated by others.

    However, in this case All Girl Worlds simply lapsed because no one had the resources to keep it going.

    So, it seems to me that since the authors…[Read more]

  • Thank you Honored Miss Rosamundi!

  • I once assembled a reading list for a girl who had been deprived of nearly all access to femininity and innocence as a child, and I believe she found it helpful. It is here. Most, though not quite all of it, can be found on Project Gutenberg.

    Of course, all of these books are Tellurian, and West Tellurian at that. However, they were written for…[Read more]

  • Rayati, honored Miss Mei! Please give me your loving indulgence, and please, do not even spare a worry. You are not ‘tardy’ in the slightest.

    Thank you for your advice! I am slowly moving back from the constant stream of Tellurian political news and media, and have been focusing more on gentle and light media. I would adore a link to the…[Read more]

    Rayati, Miss Urania! Please give me your loving indulgence, and forgive my tardiness (I never seem to greet maids in a timely fashion; one of my faults, I suppose.)

    I also spent some time in pagan religions, for a while. I enjoyed the prettier aspects of it, but it seemed too harsh otherwise. Finding Our Lady was quite the spiritual windfall for…[Read more]

  • 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!

  • Urania replied to the topic Welcome Miss Urania in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 4 weeks ago

    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]

  • 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.
