OOC: Community imports

Although it's been years since much of anything has been done with this community, I've imported over the old entries from LiveJournal. This is in part because when I went to the LJ version of this community and was rereading a post, Release 88 had defaced it by making a number of comments -- that had never been deleted when their poster closed their account -- inaccessible. Although one of the LJ staff has claimed that this is a bug that will be corrected, three weeks have passed since then with no actual progress on their part. So now they're here. This creates two smallish problems, however.

First: Ellie-mun and I had previously recreated several of the early posts from the community, and those are now out of order (but, at least until we can claim posts, look better than the imported versions, so I'm not deleting them yet). That's just a minor annoyance and one that will be (mostly) rectified by OpenID claiming when it happens.

Second: if any of you object to having your posts or comments moved over, let me know and I will delete them. Bear in mind that the LJ copy of the community may get deleted in the future, in which case this version of the community will be the only place where this portion of your character's RP history exists. I really hope you'll allow the posts and comments to stay up here, because all of you were awesome to play with.

Hopefully this community will be revived in the future, because it's a premise I really like. Anyway, leave a comment here if you have any questions or problems regarding the import.

Dr. Michael Anders has a blindfold tucked in his pocket as he pulls up to Elise's apartment. His PINpoint is in the other pocket. As he parks and climbs the stairs to the lobby, he grins broadly. This is going to be the best surprise ever.

A ceremony and reception at the Stables

For their third and final ceremony, Dr. and Mrs. Michael Simon Anders had arrived at the farmhouse for brunch with Mr. Dobson, Nat, and Jinian. Today was the most relaxed of their ceremonies and would be a much shorter guestlist than the one from last night. And after all of the rush of the previous week, it was nice to be able to take things slowly and be able to enjoy and revel in the moment.

With Nat serving as their flower girl and Mr. Dobson officiating, they walked down a grove of weeping willows and cherry trees in full bloom that served as their aisle. Their altar was an arch overgrown with wisteria, and with fields of hyacinths, tulips, and daffodils blanketing the area, they didn't need any extra flower arrangements to adorn their path. With this ceremony, they were husband and wife not only in their world but also in the Nexus, their union to be recognized anywhere they should happen to visit.

A reception followed the ceremony with close friends, all of them enjoying the beautiful Spring weather at the Stables. And though neither Simon nor Ellie could confirm it, it seemed that somehow, however impossible it might be, that Mr. Dobson had a helping hand in it. When it was time to get ready to leave for their honeymoon and PINpoint back to Chicago, Simon and Ellie had mounted one of the Stables' most regal geldings to ride off into the afternoon. At the top of the hill with the most beautiful vista, they shared one more kiss before heading home.

Ellie had felt like a Stepford sub of sorts today, trying to fulfill her role as loving fiancee, caregiver, and obedient sub as best she could. The first two were easy to manage, but the third, specifically being open and honest about her feelings, she was failing miserably. She hadn't told Michael about the letter she'd written to Dr. Crane, and anyway, she'd lost it somewhere between their apartment and the Stables.

More than anything though, she wanted to please and serve Michael. While he rested, she rode around the paddock for him, even attempting a few low jumps too. Mr. Dobson and Nat had also taken care of him too, even cooking dinner for all of them. But now it was time to get cleaned up and go back to their Chicago for the night.

She'd even poked around the Nexus to see if Dr. Crane might've shown up, but so far, nothing. And however much she hated him, she liked Isobel very much and hoped she was okay. Because he's abused her and treated her poorly... how dare he do that to her? Her anger was boiling up again, just thinking about it. Maybe I should go back tonight, to find him... and give him another piece of my mind.

[for a given value of open :3]

Elizabeth has found herself a guestroom at the stables, as she was directed to, and is now pinpointing in her suitcase and enough baby "stuff" for the twins and Catherine. She brings the babies in last, and ends up sitting in the doorway, Catherine in her lap, reading quietly while Robert and Gillian sleep.

Arriving a little early, before either Batman or Michael, she'd missed coming here. Granted, they'd been very busy and she'd been sick, but today was a good day -- and an even better day for visiting with the horses and riding.

She'd given Batman the coordinates here, with Michael probably arriving after that. And they couldn't ask for a better day, either: sunny, balmy, and just enough of a breeze to keep them comfortable.

Walking over to the paddock with a bucket of apples and carrots, she climbs the fence to sit and visit with the horses for a while before the others join her.

Party at the Nexus Stables! ((Open to everyone!))

Ellie had rushed over from work, and had been delighted to find that Mr. Dobson, Nat, and Jinian had already begun setting up for the party. The old cowboy had already fired up the grill in preparation and the girls had set out bread baskets and salads to start. There were tables with hurricane lamps set up near the house, and some additional ones down by the pond. And with clear skies, it was going to be perfect for stargazing even if you never left the table.

Several of the horses were frolicking in the paddock, and she wondered if any of their guests might like to go riding. She was definitely game, and had decided to try riding Bucky this evening. He was a beautiful Palomino, but also quite mischievous too. She was still getting to know the horses and Mr. Dobson had helped her choose which horses would be best to introduce to their guests.

While she waited for Michael and the others to arrive, she climbed up onto the fence of the paddock and watched the horses play.

((Thanks for playing with them! Simon-mun and Ellie-mun need sleep, and will be back to keep playing tomorrow if y'all like!Back!))
