|02:50 pm - OOC|
Okay, so the paid time+icons on this journal are about to expire, and there's no way I can afford to pay for upkeep on that in two places. I've pretty much settled in on Dreamwidth, and you can find me there under the same username. If anyone who RPs with Connor is not making the move, and wants to RP with him here, I'm still willing, but you will have to message me to get my attention because I no longer check here much. I will also have limited icons to work with, here. I'm not trying to be obnoxious about it, but please do be aware that some LJ layouts also give me migraines now, so there's that.
I really recommend coming on over to Dreamwidth. It's still open, and/or when it ceases to be, I would be happy to give out invites. There's fun stuff happening over there. RP memes and things...

|08:57 pm - How much is that puppy in the window?|
It's been over a year since Kairos gave Connor everything he needs for a puppy for Christmas. That's a ridiculous length of time to put it off, but first there was the looking for a house, then the move, then he spent most of the summer getting the forge set up to his satisfaction. Through fall Connor's been working in it almost every day, not making swords (although that's his ultimate goal), but polishing up old skills and hammering out Christmas gifts for all his friends. Somehow, now they've passed through a second Christmas- a second Christmas with his girlfriend, with a home and friends and a reason to start living again.
Now, it's his birthday, or thereabouts. Connor would be first to admit that the calendar's shifted around a little, and he can't be completely sure of the date anymore, but it's in January. He has his forge, a home, a girl, and it's past time he got himself a dog and really settled in. Besides, Regina could use a friend.
He's not about to go alone. Besides Kairos, who is of course the inspiration for it all, he's invited a couple of friends he's been prodding to get pets, as well. He's told Balthazar there will also be his informal student along for the trip. To Jelani, he's said a good friend and drinking buddy will be coming along. He's encouraged each of them to prod the other person to get a dog to, but in classic taciturn Connor style, he's said it so briefly he never bothered to give names.
What he did give is PINpoint coordinates to the Nexus humane society, because of course there is one, and they can all talk freely there. Of course, some of the animals may be a little unusual, but they have a section oriented toward the more conventional, baseline earths.

|07:37 pm - OOC Contact post|
Contact post: I has one. In character, Connor avoids the phone like the plague (Not that he actually avoids the plague, since he can't get sick- never mind), so your best bet is to catch him in person. The mun is available here or by private message, though!
A few notes for people joining this journal from some other comm: I use this journal to RP on several communities, notably sixwordstories, joes_bar, and dear_multiverse. IC entries in this journal all pertain to the version familiar with dear_multiverse, and therefore probably won't make sense if you've come here from somewhere else. The version for Joe's Bar is separate, and any activities of that version are played out only in joes_bar and possibly linked entries on other player's journals. On sixwordstories I may play either version in the modern time, and if you're confused feel free to ask! Usually it's the Nexus-friendly version, though. I may also play Connor at earlier points in history, because the chance to do so is just too utterly awesome to miss.
In all cases, the monster of a timeline should make a handy reference. All versions adhere to this timeline, at least up until summer of 2010.

|02:46 pm - Christmas gifts|
((Will be backdated sometime in the near future))
Connor's been working at the forge from late summer when he got it up and running, all through the fall. It's kept him busy, not coming inside until late most evenings, but at least it does make him easy to find. He seems to find some quiet joy in experimenting and playing with metal, getting his hand back into the trade. He doesn't say much about what he's making, and mostly calls it mucking around, yet most of his friends will be getting gifts off the anvil this Christmas.
For Kai, along with baking supplies, peppermint bark, a luxurious scarf and gloves, and breakfast in bed, there is his ultimate triumph, an iron rose. It's not large, but it represents the height of his current skills.
For Duncan, there's a set of knives, practical enough to use in the kitchen, but also nice enough to hang on the wall.
Clark and April get separate gifts, but they certainly make a set. Each of them has a torc that ends in leaves, mountain ash for April, and oak leaves for Clark.
For Balthazar, there's a tin of good cocoa mix from France, and a cloak pin with celtic knots at the ends. He could probably get away with wearing it just as a brooch, but for all Connor knows, he's outdated enough to still wear a cloak.
For Jelani there's a small but elegant knife, with a short note to let her know it was the first one off his new forge. The first one he considered a full success, anyway.

|01:31 pm - OOC NOTICE: DREAMWIDTH|
I hate doing all caps, but there's so much ooc crap and I wanted this to stand out. The jury seems to still be out on joes_bar but regardless, mostly for Nexus purposes, there's a duplicate journal for this one on Dreamwidth.
I'm doing my best to track people down, but if anybody else on my friends list who is also on DW could either drop me a line here or add me to their circle there, it would be very much appreciated.

|07:20 pm - All the icons!|
Connor's not always talkative, so I use his icons carefully to help give some body language... had trouble with some of these, though. Connor has no proud icons! Pride and flirty are just not qualities he does much... although if I screencap that one moment when he tells Brenda he wants to walk her home and gives her that cheesy puppy-dog look...
