BIZ-ORING! (boring)
UGH! I am tired of this SN. I changed it once, then changed it back to this. I want a new one. I want to start over again... yet I don't.

Hell.

I might as well pay 10k to change it. But it HAS to be good. I will think about it... for a very long time. And once I have reached a verdict... I might pay the fee.

Well... I'm off to change up some stuff.


Tokey! Welcome!
Ever so silently... and evasivly, me and Kiki made our way along the dark streets. Slipping through every alleyway we could find. What we had to do, had to be done as quickly and silently as possible.

"It's not every day a deal like this comes along, eh Kiki?" I whispered to Kiki.

"Then again, it's been right in front of my face this whole time!" I said aloud, then I began to think.

Once the deal was done, I could get almost whatever I wanted. These fairy wings had remained unnoticed upon my back for, Lanzer knows how long. It was time to sell. Sell. Sell.

When I got to the marketplace, it was packed full with other vendors and their over inflated prices. I made my way to my little shoppe, among the stands. I had earned over a quarter million gold through my sales... so I had upgraded to having a store in a building.. while most just had little stand they had built themselves.

I placed the fairy wings carefully under the glass of the display case. And Kiki wrote the fair price on a piece of paper, and laid it beside the wings. The wings were the only thing for sale... because my shoppe had been so sucessful that I sold everything else.

As I waited for that special customer to come in and buy the wings, I thought about what I could buy with all that new gold. It wasn't much gold that I would get for the wings, just 38k but that was enough to buy many of the things I wanted.

I had had my eye on regaining my Staff of Angels. But I mainly shopped for value... things that would increase in value over time. And I had a few things in mind. I told Kiki to fetch my calculator, which she did with in no time. After punching in the numbers, and muttering to myself. I smiled... it was possible after all.

The road to richness was so near. I kept quite. Wrote my plan down on a piece of paper and stuffed it into my pocket. And waited for that customer... that customer would make my day.

Night turned to day. And if the marketplace seemed crowded and busy at night time... you should have seen it at day time. I had grown tired of waiting. And I was thinking of going into the backroom to work on some of the homework I had to do (for the Gambino Academy, which is like your average high school). And I had lots of homework to do. I told Kiki to come get me if there was any customers. And I went off into the back-room.

I wasn't there long when Kiki scratched at the door, which was the agreed signal. I went out and acted my nicest for the customer. She finally bought the wings!

The buying customer barely got out of the door, when me and Kiki flew out and went to the nearest vendor.

Which is where I got my second Kiki, named Tokey ^_^


Too lazy...
So there was a storyline update. And as usual... I made sure to save the images in order to post them here in my journal for future reference to myself and possibly other Gaians... but I just feel to lazy right now. But, I probably will do it... just not now. But I'll get around to it for sure.

So Halloween is coming up soon. Spooky, eh? My very first Halloween event on Gaia! Can't wait!


Nightwind Dragon Gown/A day in Towns
Today, I felt like getting away from the forums, which were quite repetitive today. I needed some fresh air... so I went to the train station and randomly picked an area code, and went there to catch some bugs.

I had recently purchased this Nightwind Dragon Gown over in Aekea, after selling Ian part of my other outfit, and the rest at my shop. I had too many items on my outfit, and I felt it need to be simplified. I had my eye on this Nightwind Dragon Gown after visiting Liams shop... quite alot ninja I had previously owned the Icemist Dragon Gown, and I liked the silky, lush feeling it had on me. Liam read me the description of the dress....

Made of fine silk and embroidered with gold colored threads, this sleek gown feels lush against your skin.

So I finally decided to buy it. Although I do miss my designer blush couture boots... but they didn't match the gown, so they had to go.

Anyways, after buying this nice dress, I wanted to make sure I wouldn't get it dirty while I was out hunting for bugs. This would prove tricky, but I was up for the challenge. So, while I was returning to the fountain spot of this area, I ran into... a problem.

Some random guy began to follow me. We began to converse through emoticons, and his signals were suggesting that he liked me while mine were like back off, at which point he would reply with the cry icon.

At first it was all fun and games, and then it began to get annoying. I told him to BACK OFF! And to go away. But he wouldn't. Two other guys and one girl around noticed that he was bothering me. One of the guys told me that he would stop him from bothering me... which is where the funny-ness beings.

So my stalker approaches him (who is sitting under a tree). And bombards him with scream icons and such. And the guy under the tree is like "Buddy, I have a pitchfork". At this point he stands up. And then begins the most funny thing I have ever seen on Gaia. These two guys are clicking frantically around the same vicinity... making them look fairly... stupid. But I have never laughed so hard as I did then. Then one of the other guys tells me that this would be a good time to run, while they were distracted. So I left the area, and an error brought me to the main screen (with the NPC's). So I never got the chance to catch up them, or find out what happened.


Deleated scene: SPY RUN-AROUND

I was sitting by a fountain in towns, by Bogie (in a very NPC manner). Many people came and went, said hi and left. Until this one guy came in quite alot. He was catching bugs and returning them, leaving the map and then returning to deposite the bugs.

He seemed to have noticed that I was sitting there everytime he came back... so a spy game automatically began, even though no words were said by any of us (actions speak louder then words wink )

I remained seated by Bogie, he went around the other side of the fountain to hide. I made my avvie turn around and did the ! icon.... to show that I had spotted him. He began to run... and I followed him. We kept running around and around the fountain. I was chasing him and he was using the icon where the frightened smilie is flailing his arms frantically.

Ah..... good times.


Parting is such sweet sorrow...
It was a good day for me. I had earned much gold by posting in the forums, and voting at the polls. I returned to my house with RoRo and KiKi and placed the days earnings of gold safely under the mushroom shaped lamp in my house. It was safe there. Roro hid his bones there. And often, Roro had hid birthday gifts and such for Kiki and me. They were never expensive or extravagent gifts, but they were thoughtful.

The house was empty, but it was home. I didn't have a bed or barely any furniture yet, but it was still a roof over my head and a place to store some of my items.

Roro, Kiki, and I had been fairly tired from a good day of working in the forums, but the bills hadn't been paid, the taxes haven't been collected. (Now, I am not a poor Gaian, but I am not a rich Gaian either. I am more of a lower middle class Gaian who must work hard to keep my gold stable).

So the knock at the door the next morning was not acknowledged with much anticipation. Roro barked, kiki dashed to the farthest corner of the house. And I went to answer the door.

"Good evening." The tax collecter said. He was a ritzy fellow, I noticed as he took his top hat off and straightened his monocle. His V Pin gleamed in the sun, which I glared at warily, making sure to take off my G Pin while I was still half way behind the door. We were automatic enemies, and it wouldn't be too good if he knew I was a Gambino supporter.

"Hello, what do you want?" I didn't even try to make an effort at politness. I could see he realized this as he shifted his breifcase from one hand to the other. After struggling to remove the G Pin, I handed it down... knowing that one of my pets would take it and hide it. I felt relieved when I felt Roro's strong jaw gently take the G Pin away from my hand, and I felt a light vibration on the floor as he trotted off to hide it. Good Roro, I'll make it a point to take you too Isle de Gambino for a walk today I said in my head, smiling at the thought of his loyalness.

I slipped out of the door and closed it behind me. When the tax collector continued. "Well, as you are probably aware... even in this part of Gaia" he said as he looked disappovingly around. I shot him a nasty look, but he pretended not to see it, and went on.

"Taxes are due, and I am here to collect 500 gold from the Gaians in this neighborhood." He said as he held out a leather pouch. "Who exactly do these taxes go too? I mean, with Gambino and his son missing" I said, hoping they were still alive "And with the Von Helsons dead" I added just to spite him. He was taken aback. He held his hand to his V Pin and said "It is not up to you, a mere commoner to question where the taxes go to. Just pay, and I will be on my way. If you do not believe I am an official tax collector I can show you the papers" He said as he unlocked his briefcase and presented an official looking document with a gold stamp, and a signature by both of the Von Helson sisters.

"It is signed by the Von Helsons, that means that this license is only legal in Durem." I said, almost certain that I wouldn't have to pay now. "Would you like me to read through it? I believe you will find that it is legal through out all of Gaia." He removed his monocle and put on a pair of thin lensed glasses, which he peered down through as his eyes scanned through the document. "I don't care what it says. Unless it is signed by Johnny K. Gambino, I am not paying 1 gold." I said, begining to open the door to my house.

The tax collector lifted his right hand, and used two fingers as if to motion to somebody to come forward. I looked, and saw several guards clad similar to Leon come forth. "Those who do not pay, will be arrested immediatly. And taken to the prision in Aekea. The guards there are robots, so I don't think they will show any compassion what-so-ever." He said. And before I could say anything, Roro burst out of the door and violently attacked the tax collector. The guards eventually managed to get Roro off of the surprised man, who seemed to have forgotten all about collecting taxes.

*-----------------------+--------------------------*

My punishment for this was that I would have to sell my Roro at my shop, it was either that or Roro getting put to sleep. I was happy that I never had to deal with the tax collector again, Roro did a fine job of that.

I never really realized I was selling Roro until the haggling actually started. I began to feel numb, and sick to the stomach. As Gaians came to look at Roro, I felt my eyes burn, I tried to hold the tears back. I didn't hear what they were saying, I was too busy looking at the unknowing Roro, who was running around the shop as he usually did, and occasionally sitting up straight and obiedienty at my side, then running around again.

Finally a guy wearing a ninja band came up to the counter. I was watching poor Roro play tug-of-war with Kiki with one of my blush couture boots. I didn't realize he was there until his ninja band glinted in my eyes. He said, "I'll give you 1.6k, GAIA 1st annual memorial photo, a chicky hat, and a bunny hat for your Roro." I almost said, he's not for sale... but then I realized that I had to sell him. I reluctantly agreed. I watched him carry my Roro away. Roro looked back at me, confused, but understanding all the same.

Thats when the flood gates opened. I cried. I remembered all the times Roro and I had together. The times we spend in the forums... everything. Kiki came up to me, and laid gently in my lap, looking up at me... as if to say everything was going to be alright.

*-----------------------+--------------------------*

Kiki and I headed silently, and slowly home. It was growing dark, and fireflies began to appear. I noticed the fireflies with much melancholy. They were flying under our favorite tree. The tree Roro, Kiki, and I had sat down under every evening and watched the sunset. Many daisies grew under that tree, we never picked them. They were far too beautiful...

I opened the door to my house, and Kiki walked slowly over to her corner of the house and curled up. I placed the 1st GAIA anniversary memorial photo, signed by Gambino in the corner of the house. And sat next to it. My birthday was coming up, and it would be very sad and lonely without Roro. Sure, I have Kiki... but it's not the same without Roro.

I went to the mushroom lamp to place the gold I had earned from selling Roro under it. When the last glint of the day caught my eye. There lie the G Pin, which Roro had hidden for me earlier. It lie there neatly, and cleaner than before. The gold it was made of shone brightly. I proudly pinned it on. But there was something else under the mushroom lamp....

I moved aside two pouches of gold, and there lie a weak, limp daisy. I picked it up carefully. I felt like it would fall apart. Tears welled up in my eyes as I realized that this was Roros birthday gift to me. Hidden, like all his other gifts. One of the beautiful daisies that we never wanted to pick. I placed it in my hair. There was something special about this daisy. Something that held it together, and though it may seem far-fetched... I believe it was Roros courage and loyalty. Which would forever live on in this frail daisy.

I then made a vow to myself to never sell my Kiki, G Pin, or Daisy.



Civil War of Gaia
Haven't updated in awhile, but I have been busy.... under cover. Walking through the streets of Gaia, noting whats going on. Many strange things are occuring.

I was going to my Gaia home one day after I was done in the GCD forum looking for clues. I was so tired that I hardly noticed that my grass had all dried out. I was confused. I wondered if it happened to other people. It obviously did. Also, in some homes the place where it said the username of the owner had said, "WWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAA", whatever that means. But I had decided not to worry about it, there was much more interesting things to investigate.

There was a sudden outbreak awhile ago, while I was lurking I had heard of a thing called spoon feeding, where the thread master is supposed to tell the posters what to talk about. Many disapproved of it, and others needed it in order to have a conversation. Why it had all of sudden broke out, I have no clue. But I decided that it was a user fad, that came and went, so I over looked it for the time being.

*Grabs a soda* Oh, sorry... I got thirsty. Long days work you know. Now what...? Ah, yes the Gaian civil war. I figu-... +crash+ What was that? *Looks out window* Hmm... nothing, well...

The admins, the almighty rulers of this land, have decided to randomly pick a few lucky users to try out the newest feature... towns. This has caused much anger through out Gaia. Users who were not picked (non-testers) are outraged. And users who were picked (testers) are split into three groups. The ones who brag about being a tester, the ones who take screen caps and tell everyone what it's like, and then the modest ones who don't say a word. Both testers and non-testers have had heated arguments, some friendships were ended. Thus the civil war of Gaia Community Discussion. But I--

+ring ring+ Oh sorry, thats my cell phone... *checks caller ID* gotta take this one.

Hello?

---bi-os b-d- has been f-u--

What? Where?

My-t-r---- call.

What? Hello? Whats happening? HELLO?

Oh no, I got to go... something happened. I will see you later... this can't be good....

[Will be continued when the September 2005 donation item is released]



Times have been hard in Gaia. Everyone is worried about Gino, repeat threads of the same theories are being made. Inflation in the marketplace has reached a ridiculous all time high. I was lucky to be able to find this G Pin before it became a scarce expensive treasure. As do most items seem to be.

Information about upcoming towns, quests, and the battle system are all getting more frequent. It seems Gaia will be an amazing place once all these things have come to us. But be patient wink these great things will take alot of time.

Sealed Letters for August released/Silence continues
As the silence in Gaia continues, threads in the GAIA Discussion Forum about the unusual silence continue to increase. Let me remind you, the last plot update hasn't been since around Easter of this year. And I'm sure we can agree, that has been a long time.

Leaders of this thread suspect that the new plot update will come around the time that Towns are released, so that it is a double treat. Other sources say that the update will come late this month. Time will only tell.

Gaians are now able to receive this months Sealed Letter. Whether by donating real money, or purchasing it from the marketplace.

Speaking of the marketplace, inflation has angered many users. Insanely high prices. Unreasonable sales. There are many petitions in circulation to boy-cott the purchase of over-priced items. And for people to lower their prices, in hope that it will spread. But so far the attempt has gone unnoticed.
