Clans, Carpet Rides and Careers

[Xanadu Weyr] Thea dings bell. Okay Candidates! It's time! :D
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel: Uh oh!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: So as Xanadu's Senior Weyrwoman I see all, know all. You know what that means right?
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes is in trouble?
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera: But, bad things happen when I leave my cot!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: It means that the hidden secrets of YOU must come to light. And in exchange for revealing these secrets, you must all promise me something. :D
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: Our souls?
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel: Don't murder me!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea chuckles, tempted! No, just promise you'll save your personal sleuthing for later. For now watch your screens… XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce will take souls! Mwahaha!
[Xanadu Weyr] Jethaniel: It is often advisable to observe what the Weyrwoman is doing, yes. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: You don't want this one, it's messy.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: BOWYN
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: The name Bowyn is a Gaelic boy's name. In Gaelic the meaning of the name Bowyn is: Blond. People with this name have a deep inner desire for a stable, loving family or community, a need to work with others and to be appreciated.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Somehow, I think Bowyn lost the memo on this. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes laughs!
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes always assumed it had something to do with bows.
[Xanadu Weyr] Jethaniel: I believe she may have used it as tinder for her campfire.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Probably! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: On Google Images for Bowyn the FIRST to show up there is:
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes laughs. Beautiful.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Though there is also a floofy poodle, a back cat and someone in boxing gloves! (also a skeleton and a disembodied eyeball).
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: They all sort of fit her! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: But wait - there's MORE! I found a clip of Bowyn singing to us:
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: She's so cute!!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: GARAWAN
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: You have your very own language! (yes, really!): The Garawan languages, or Yanyi, are a small language family of Australian Aboriginal languages once spoken in northern Australia (
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: Woah.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: And there's a…place named after you in Iraq. I'm… not sure what sort of place it is, though. Maybe a village. (
[Xanadu Weyr] Garawan: Considering I literally pulled the name out of my nether regions, this is hilarious. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Last but not least, you have your very own line of rugs (maybe made in that village? XD):
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce: Magic Garawan carpets!!!
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: Nice rugs, Garawan.
[Xanadu Weyr] Garawan something something something ride the magic carpet something…
[Xanadu Weyr] Garawan XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes snorts.
[Xanadu Weyr] Jethaniel: He /is/ a trader by origin. Perhaps there's rugs in the caravan?
[Xanadu Weyr] Garawan: Amongst other things. :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: INNES
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: You have your very own clan:
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes is not a benevolent ruler.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: …your own line of clothing:
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: …your own crest:
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: …your own logo:
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: …your own tartan (it's pretty!):,7880,tartan.php
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: Oh I love that tartan.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: …your own T-shirt:
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce approves of all these textiles! I can help you model them. :D
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce: And market them.
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes eyes this wikipedia entry. Clan Innes has no chief? What is this nonsense??
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Well, you're /here/, not /there/. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: I see your point.
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera chuckles. The sentient creature growing under your cot is Cheif!
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: It is not!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: You can run from the Weavercraft, but you can't hide? XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes cries.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Aaaand last but not least, Innes, you have your very own theme song (There are no words, but it's still kinda cool):
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: … THEMESONG.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea snickers. Lorelai had like 4 theme songs. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes is groovin' to this song.
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel: Thea, lol You must have been quite bored one day. lol
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: She does this every time! I stalked the Xanadu wiki enough to know. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Every Weyr has traditions?
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Googling the Candidates is tradition - at least with me (see the OOC logs for previous cycls). >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: KERA
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: You have your very own TV station - KERA TV:
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera: I always wanted to air only what I want to watch Whoohoo!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Maybe you can get free airtime, Innes, for your clan chief campaign? XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes demands it!
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera: I do offer a friends rate :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: Friends rate better mean free. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Aaand because you are an essential part of Keratin, you have a health and beauty company:
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: You have your very own magazine (Beauty and fashion):
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes: Wow, the shipping weight is 1.3lbs. How thick is that magazine?
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: See Kera? You have something in common with Darsce! :D
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera: Erm, don't tell her that. lol
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce approves of this! I will keep her focused and train her to be business savvy!
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce: And out of trouble!
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera grins. Well cool then! :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Jethaniel says nothing.
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce: And only demand 50% of the profits.
[Xanadu Weyr] Innes acks and has to run. Thank you, Thea! Can't wait to read the rest of these when the log is posted! Catch you guys later.
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera: We can discuss that bit Darsce :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce rumages. Now where's the muzzle and harness? It was right here! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Jethaniel continues. To say. NOTHING.
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce drapes on Jethaniel. Smart man. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Kera, you star in your very own clip:
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera: Awww, cute little kitties!!! I want one!!!!!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: I think you're the… monkey? (But I can't tell). XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce: They might be speaking in Garawan! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: NORNON
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea tried Googling and got: Did you mean Norton?
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea tried again and got Did you mean Mormon?
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Third time's the charm?
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel chuckles.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Sadly, all I could find was: "Nor non: Neither Perception Nor Non-Perception…" (But mysterious is in?)
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Not to worry though! In Google images I found a ship named after Nornon! :D
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: I'm… sorry there…isn't much… left of it. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: I see you are all in awed silence. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel: I am finding this amusing. Not gunna lie.
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera: I think I saw that ship on one of the Istan Ilses
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea caaackles! You might have, Kera. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera: Yea, Kera fell through it and twisted her ankle lol
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce can see why. The thing is more holes than ship! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: PERRI
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: You have your own movie!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Aaaaand you can be found in some expensive water:
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Some of you had a ton of stuff - others not so much (you should see Soriana and Muir)
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Last but not least SOREL
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: I found: Sorel: A young buck in the third year
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel: Apparently I'm a deer?
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce: Or a… stud-buck? >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea eyes. You're on your honeymoon, Missy! Get back to it! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: But Sorel, you have the COOLEST logo evar!!!
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel snickers. You want to know how I 'came up' with the name?
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Also!! You have your own website and some nifty boots (how exciting!):
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: But yes, I do, Sorel. :D
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel: It was a street or town or something so every time I would drive from Montreal to New York I'd pass it and go 'That'd make a cool character name!' every time.. until I made him. lol /nerd
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea likes it. And I did find a lot of sorrel, but… not the same as your name.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: So that concludes Googling the candidates. Feel free to sleuth more on your names. *opens cage door* :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Sorel: That was defnitely informative. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce returns to honeymoon and plotting Kera's new career. *flee*
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce quiets her knot.
[Xanadu Weyr] Kera gulps. She's actively plotting against me now? I'm sooooo scr… lol
