  • Rosamunda-chei, I agree wholeheartedly. Part of my frustration with the situation was that… Well, why does a mascül feel the need to have a say about our culture, when it does not pertain to him?

    As for my friend, she has indeed been looking into Chelouranya – thank Dea, she has not been driven away from the beauty of our inherent femininity…[Read more]

  • Well, since you’ve happened to ask, here is a brunette perspective, and a married one, and a struggling in Telluria one all together.

    You’re choosing a hard road. But is it really harder than going against your nature?

    Telluria right now expects everyone who looks like a grown up to work, and the economy in the United States is certainly set up…[Read more]

  • Your mother may be thinking that it is a big risk to go into the world unqualified even if you think now that that is what you want to do. It is the sort of thing mothers think and the point of view is understandable up to a point – but..

    It seems to me that an even bigger risk is to take on a big burdensome debt in order to get a qualification…[Read more]

    Rune Factory! Yes that’s right. I wonder how I forgot that.

    There may well be an English version of Ever Oasis now or soon. Major games usually get translated and this one seems pretty major. I found out about it from a friend and then from my 3DS which is a Japanese one.

    Miss Sushuri, I think I know which one you mean. Is it Rune Factory? I haven’t played any of that series yet, but I’d really like to.

    Thank you for the recommendation! Unfortunately I am hopeless at Japanese, but if I can find a Let’s Play of it by an English-speaking person I’m going to watch that :)

  • Rayati, honoured ones.

    I am feeling rather upset at the moment since a conversation with my mother that just ruined my entire day.

    My younger sister is doing rather well for herself at the moment. She is studying art at University and has always done better in academic environments than myself. But my mother now wants me to do a degree too, and…[Read more]

    I played Harvest Moon a long time ago, on the old Gamebaby Color. I have’t played anything in the series since – there is also a connected game that combines farming life with a touch of RPG adventuring I seem to remember, but I forget the name.

    I think they are truly lovely games because they depict peace and harmony and goodness in a truly…[Read more]

    Rayati! I am so glad this board exists, because there is a game series I have to share with you all. Have any of you played it?

    The series is called Story of Seasons, formerly Harvest Moon (there was a schism and another company now makes games called Harvest Moon which aren’t as good, while the original group now creates Story of Seasons games…[Read more]

    Rayati!

    Before I found Filianism & Deanism, I already had a basic idea of what I believed.

    I had just left the Tellurian religion of Mormonism (formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). This religion is a form of Christianity that teaches that we have two Heavenly Parents: a Father and Mother. However, the Mother is…[Read more]

    Miss Sanae, it sounds like you and I have had very similar experiences, then! I must be careful with it, too, because of my medications.

    Another point: I take care not to drink when I am feeling mentally or spiritually unwell, as it can make one susceptible psychic demonic attacks. Many people in Telluria use alcohol as an anti-depressant of…[Read more]

  • Sanae replied to the topic Alcohol in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 3 weeks ago

    I read this with great interest! I must be very careful with alcohol due to some medications that I am taking, but when I imbibe, I am always careful to plan to do it around people I trust, like your brunette-femini friends, Miss Eriana. And my dear brunette-type friends know that I am trusting them with my safety, so they are extra careful with…[Read more]

  • Eriana replied to the topic Alcohol in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 3 weeks ago

    Thank you both, very much! You have certainly helped me come to a conclusion on this.

    I completely agree about ones company affecting their experience drinking, Miss Rosamunda. I have a good example of this, actually. I have a group of friends currently, mainly brunette-like femini, who are some of the most caring and loving people I have ever…[Read more]

  • My pardon is yours with all my heart, honored Mei-san. As for Shining World and Chelouranya as a whole – it is primarily a place for people who are, from the perspective of Tellurians, aliens. In the Motherland, and in this protectorate of the Motherland, the presence of a mascul would be wrong. I suppose insofar as Tellurians are aware of us,…[Read more]

  • I am a bit of an exception to the stereotype of the heavy-drinking brunette, I think. I must admit more than one or two drinks just isn’t any fun for me. But then, after one or two drinks it stops being a social lubricant and starts being an anaesthetic, and I’m not fond of anaesthetics. Mind you, I enjoy those one or two drinks thoroughly, when I…[Read more]

  • Sushuri replied to the topic Alcohol in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    I don’t think there is any objection to the use (as opposed to the abuse) of alcohol.

    Some brunettes do tend to drink rather more than blondes on occasion I think. and that’s all right. Personally I don’t really like the feeling of more than a teensy bit of alcohol

    Rayati!

    Before I begin I would like to say that I am yet unsure whether or not I consider myself a Daughter of Shining Harmony. I very much relate to the idea of intermorphic gender systems and definitely believe my soul to belong to a feminine world that is very different than Telluria. This has been proven recently when I came to the conclusion…[Read more]

  • Hee…I think, honored Rill-san, you are referring to “Princess” Langwidere, temporary regent of Ev. Princess Ozma and Dorothy rescue the true royal family of Ev and everything turns out well. Or, rather…but that would be telling.

    Don’t worry, no heroine in the book is so naughty as that.

  • Rayati again, Miss Pearl,

    Please forgive my tardy response to your post. Life has been a bit topsy-turvy of late.

    With respect to high ideals, and being upset about not living up to them….I think in the Late Iron Age, it is really hard to be who we feel we ought to be. I think the difference between the Modern West and more racinated places…[Read more]

  • Well the thing is, in the first book and part of the second, the realm of Oz is recovering from some very bad leadership. After the rightful princess returns, Oz becomes a much lovelier place and the series a more enjoyable read.

    It isn’t so much that the first books are bad books, it’s that we discover over time that Oz had gone wrong and it is…[Read more]

  • Thank you for the recommendation, Elefarya-chei. I didn’t realize the books changed so much from the first one, having never read them.

    Now I really want to read them myself and am going to look out for a Japanese translation.
