Shining Tea Room

  • 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!

  • Sushuri replied to the topic Welcome Miss Lynn in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 4 weeks, 1 day ago

    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!

    Ah okay, I understand more now! Thank you! Perhaps one could meditate on them to try and understand more…an experiment for another day, perhaps.

    Yes, it does make sense. It is good to hear that your heart led you here, Honored Miss Urania…and it is natural and normal for it to be a bit difficult, I think. This is a very different place, and it is a difficult transition.

    Waftings….well, they are sort of like memories of other lives, but we sort of let them be what they are and not…[Read more]

  • Urania replied to the topic Welcome Miss Urania in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 1 month ago

    I am so very new to this, and while my heart led me here, it is still…difficult? If that makes sense?

  • Urania replied to the topic Welcome Miss Urania in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 1 month ago

    No no Miss Yuriko, what you’ve written rings very true!

    I agree- It is difficult to find material that doesn’t chafe at me. If I might recommend, for simple reading pleasure, the works of Tamora Pierce, particularly ‘Protector of the Small’? It is, to me, an excellent example in writing of a true Vikhelic warrior, and the ‘universe’ of the books…[Read more]

    Before coming here, I had flirted with trying to find pagan, or more precisely, neo-pagan worship, but for some reason, I never acted on it, and instead chafed under liberal Protestant Christianity for a long time.

    I think that the main thing about neo-pagan worship, at least in the West, is that for all of its good intention, it is an attempt to…[Read more]

    Honored Miss Rosamunda, I do know, sadly…I think all maids of Chelouranya know that feeling.

    I’ve found solace, recently, in the famous Tellurian book, Mists of Avalon. It is a sad story, but the authoress worked so hard to tell the stories of the ‘female’ characters, the ones who were just brushed aside in the original Tellurian legend. I…[Read more]

  • Honored Miss Urania,
    You are by no means the only one to search through the “pagan” religions and leave disappointed before coming here. Me too! I loved the pretty stones and statues and things, and I loved calling God She, but I didn’t much care for…well. We know. I’m so happy to be here and to have the Gospel and all the pretty stories, and to…[Read more]

    Thank you Miss Sushuri!

  • Sushuri replied to the topic Welcome Miss Urania in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 1 month ago

    Yes the domain did expire, which is rather sad.

    However there is some Chelouranyan material at the Sun Daughter Press Reading Room.

    You will find the larger stories there (like The Adventure of the Crystal Staff and The Dream Key) as well as some other good stories and other things.

  • Urania replied to the topic Welcome Miss Urania in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 1 month ago

    I am quite sad that the All Girl Worlds website has vanished. The domain must have expired. I so enjoyed reading there.
