Wow! So this year was my first Winterveil spent not on the streets and man — it was amazing!!
Lots of great food, SO many cookies, and I’ve been wearing this great headband with antlers all week. It has jingle bells on it. It’s very obnoxious. I love it.
With all the chaos in the Keg, on top of visiting my brother in Silvermoon, I am a little late with this week’s update. So to make up for it, I have a Winterveil present for you all! I am going to provide three new recipes over the next three days, as well as a bonus for a new series I’m considering.
With the new year coming in just a few days, Colin taught me some of his traditions from home. He used to be head chef in the Purple Parlor in Dalaran before… well, he didn’t really want to talk about what happened. But he was kind enough to show me his tricks that he learned from his time there and his New Years traditions, and I’m excited to get to share them with you.
Love you all! As always, let me know what you think and feel free to hit me up if you have ideas or even are just lonely and want to chat. I’m available through email in the Contact tab and my twitter is @jaxkol

It’s still familiar, of course, but I’ve…. ya know, I’ve felt a lot of other things lately too… Love. Peace. Joy. I guess I was starting to forget.
I guess she figured it was time to jog my memory.

“– Is back! Pryn is back! Pryn –”
Frantic panting, noises of excitement that don’t form any coherent words. “Pryn’s back — it was — oh man — oh man!
I gotta — I gotta calm down. Gotta breathe.”

The crystal crackles to life, the sound of movement around a room, simple chores and light cleaning.
“Dear You… It’s been a week. Normally I wouldn’t worry but. I dunno. It’s… This week has been weird. And I have a really weird feeling that something bad is about to happen. Or something good is going to dissolve or… I think the Human phrase is I’m waiting for the shoe to drop. It doesn’t really make much sense, it’s more like waiting for a manabomb to explode, I guess.

The Crystal starts with frustrated growling, uncharacteristically heavy footfalls treading a line in the floor.
“I can’t breathe. I can’t sleep. I can’t eat. I don’t… know what’s wrong with me. I’ve been fine. I’ve been fine! I haven’t done anything wrong I –“
The sound of pacing, back and forth, back and forth, rapid, shallow breathing.

So here’s the thing. With my newly discovered hobby of collecting attempts on my life by strangers, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and start making Memory Orbs as well. I hate doing these, but… If something happens to me, I’d like… Well. I’d like someone to know the whole story.
