King Pavonis d’Eros was crowned as a young boy at the very beginning of the Clovian war, following his father’s death at Fort Haphaes, and has since lived with an incredible burden from his people. He haphazardly maintains his good relations with his cousin, Queen Eris of Spades, and not-so-good relations with the Maanen court of Diamonds.
As such, he has a terrible image in the eyes of his people and the combined stresses have made him lose sight of his happiness. Still, he pushes on, fighting the fate that governs the world.

A United States Marine is being held in custody after Jennifer Laude, a 26 year old Filipina Transgender, was found brutally murdered in an Olongapo City hotel on Saturday. The suspect has been identified as Private First Class Joseph Scott Pemberton and is being held by the United States Navy aboard a ship in the Philippines. Details are mixed, but according to some reports, Laude and a friend met Pemberton at a local disco bar and later went to a hotel where Laude became nervous and asked to leave before it was discovered that she was Transgender. What happened next is still a mystery but later that night, she was found savagely beaten, bruised, strangled, and drowned in a toilet. Angry protestors have taken to the streets demanding the United States military leave and transfer Pemberton into Filippino custody. The Philippine Government is reassuring the family and the country that everything will be done to achieve justice. Many protestors say this has brought back harsh memories of the 2005 raping of Suzette Nicolas, a Filipina Transgender who was abused in a moving vehicle by an American Marine while 3 others watched and cheered. Lance Corporal Daniel Smith was found guilty of the rape and sentenced to 40 years imprisonment, Lance Corporals Keith Silkwood and Dominic Duplantis and Staff Sergeant Chad Carpentier were all acquitted. In 2009 the conviction was overturned and Smith was released and allowed to leave the country. Corky Hope Maranan, who leads a Transgender and Lesbian group locally, said “If he remains in U.S. custody, certainly he can escape from our justice system again. We don’t want another Daniel Smith.”
My heart goes out to Jennifer, her friends and family, the Transgender community of the Philippines, and all of those affected by this disgusting act of violence. The struggles that the Transgender community faces are often overlooked and forgotten, especially and most shamefully by the rest of the LGBT community, but we will all come together today to mourn one of our own, and demand justice.
In the early spring shepherds drive huge flocks of livestock, here sheep, mules, donkeys, and goats from the Pre-Alpine hills to the plains of Lombardy, for grazing. The newborn lambs are carried in a custom made side saddle by the donkeys, and returned to their mothers at rest time.
I met this twerking, albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.
Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.
