Mission Control

  • 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!

  • 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]

  • さま

    このスレ (「スレ」とは「スレッド」という意味です) へようこそ。

    自由に書いてください。どう書いてもいいです。

    まずは、自己紹介を書いたください。

    みんなさま、がんばってください。

  • 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]

  • 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]

  • 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]

  • 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]

  • 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.

  • Rayati and welcome Miss Urania. Please don’t worry about words and customs. You’ll pick them up as you go along and no one minds the odd mistake.

    I am so happy that you found your way here. Please feel free to ask questions or talk about anything at all. We are a bit quiet on the site at the moment but we are always around and happy to chat so…[Read more]

  • Welcome Honored Miss Urania,

    Please give me your loving indulgence.

    I see from your profile that you have read Silver Vixen as well as some of the short stories. How exciting.

    If you would like, please tell us a little more about yourself and what drew you to Chelouranya. We would love to get to know you better!

    Also please feel free to ask…[Read more]

  • Living in a mild climate, I usually get away with a jacket or cardigan sweater. Actually I do tend to wear several layers such as a turtle-neck plus twin-set because I am a samugariya (feel the cold).

    If I were in a colder part of Telluria I would love to wear something like this:

    Baby the Stars Shine Bright

    Assuming I had 44,000 yen to spare! Which sadly I don’t!

    But…[Read more]

  • Rayati Miss Lynne, please give me your loving indulence.

    I am very happy to meet you and welcome you to Shining World.

    We mostly use the honorifics -chei, Miss and -san here. Miss is more Westrenne (and does not indicate marital status) and also West Tellurian. -chei is more Estrenne, as Miss Venus says. -san is used when we are speaking…[Read more]

  • Rayati and welcomme, Honored Miss Lynn,

    Please give me your loving indulgence. I think that your profile picture and background are quite lovely, by the way.

    I see that you also studied Japanese in school.

    Please feel free to share more about yourself or to ask questions.

    I hope you enjoy your stay here.

    In Amity,
    Yuriko Rill
