Treatment for potential Raggedy Ann and Andy remake
cosmo

Constructs in another dimension. Ragedi-Ahn and Ragedi-Ahn'd. (looking for names to be similar; "Ragedi" should be a title referring to purpose)
Purpose: Advisors/companions/aides
Ahn's traits: Ideas, helping, caring/empathy, patience
Ahn'd's traits: Action, dedication, strength, impulse

Crafted to be aides/helpmates for wise/just/benevolent rule. Current regime sees as anarchist/threat to status quo.

Heart of Khan-di: Power source/broadcaster; amplifies Ahn's empathy/healing. Positive nurture force.
Heart of Tru (name needs work): Power source/broadcaster, missing/lost/damaged; amplifies Ahn'd's dedication and strength. Positive protect force.

Ahn is fleeing/escaping militaristic/conservative regime (either unfeeling/bureaucratic or bloodthirsty/violent. Leaning towards first: protocol, conformity, everyone's place determined). Discovers Ahn'd, locked away in "storage" in former monarchy/government building. Discovered; flee through gate/portal to Earth, major metro (LA/NY/Chi).

Tropes: Pursuit, discovering one's self and one's self-power. Heart must recharge before able to return. Single or small group of allies...outside cliques. Variety of goth/geek/whatever subcultures WITHOUT overly-cliched stereotypes, if possible.

Query: Ahn'd's heart - lost on Earth (Khan-di heart shows way) or still in home dimension?
Do we want to do the Lookingglass Wars/Alice thing where the children's stories are based on truth as translated/understood by humans?

Defeat or evasion of searching foes; return to home. Possible allies in storage at home...other constructs that resemble the other dolls/toys in books, with purpose, i.e. French Doll is Mistress of Protocol/Etiquette? Toy Soldier is infantry trainer?
Human allies come with (hmmm...conformist human(s) siding with regime? Not doing a Drago...possibly a Radkin from Dr Who (Sontaran stratagem) with less evil...was helping regime, sucked through portal, discovers regime sucks, learns lesson about uniqueness/blah blah blah/afterschool special. How to do without being frickin CHEESY?!?

Hearts can power device that boosts citizens' caring/joy/determination/positive forces. Standard race-to-grail between sides.

During race/search for allies/etc, people Ahn and Ahn'd come in contact with begin developing/remembering "higher" emotions/joi d'vivre (if I spelled that correctly)/strength of heart/mind/soul.

Balance between uniqueness of individual/societal needs reached. Art, culture, and learning exist once more. Tolerance and understanding FTW, without a Care Bear/GI Joe/afterschool special smack-upside-the-head-with-the-sturgeon-of-morality. Humans return to Earth to help their people not make the mistakes the others' did.

Points:
Tolerance - means everybody. The conformist needs to understand rebel, rebel needs to understand conformist, etc. Cross-sc-drama/resolution; Conformist not racist/homophobe/sexist/whatever. Everybody learns so that everyone is human; not "us-vs-them". Mix it up slightly: goth is homophobe, gangbanger is gay, etc...personal issues should NOT match clique stereotypes. Latino emo/goth racist? Redneck jock likes RPGs? Possible internal alliance/conflict based on tolerance specs? Crap, stuck in a Breakfast Club moment.

Extremes not necessarily good; Too much conformity bad, too much rebel bad. Balance!

Thoughts

I went walking along the Eagle River today, and picked a spot along it's bank to sit and contemplate.

The sound of the water, the scent of the water, the touch of it in the air, on my skin, in my lungs. I am Aquarius, air that carries water, and water gives me my purpose, and my self.

I felt at peace, listening to the river's voice...tranquil and serene as I have not been in many years. I felt a piece of me return, unwrapping itself from the depths in which it had hid, cocooned, to reach once more for the outside world.

My restoration is not yet complete; this I can tell. But I will seek out the serenity of living water, and let its voice and caress slowly draw me back out from where I have hidden for so long.

While walking along the path, I spotted some black and purple beads, of the kind children use to create bracelets. Not only was I struck by the contrast of the artificial against the natural, but also by what it represented. Difficult to explain...like the forest had swallowed a child, leaving only this scattered remnants of ornamentation behind. But not in a fearful or tragic way...it almost seemed a reminder that we are fleeting, and will always leave this world. Our only hope of eternity is our deeds, the memories and beauty we create, the knowledge we leave behind. I don't really have the words...I was neither angry at the litter, nor concerned for it's owner. It just was...and spoke to me beyond words or specifics, just a feeling of "this is", with the multitude of meanings impressing themselves so deeply that they became truth without detail.

This is. I am. We are. And the wonders of our world are there for those who take the time to listen, and see, and think. And I think I pity anyone who walks this world with eyes and ears and mind closed to the truths and beauties that surround us always. And thank the Harmony that I am not such a one as that, and can be touched by that which lies around us.

While I Work, an Update:
cosmo

Living in Moreno Valley with my friends Adam and Ashley, both 24. Fairly mature for their age, and the living arrangements are pretty much stress-free. Ashley is young, so she dramas out occasionally, but nowhere near as bad as living with Rose.

Working for Starwood Vacation Ownership still, now at 3 years plus a few months. Still feel pretty lucky to get hired back at the same company I was laid off from 4 months prior. Drive to work isn't as bad now that I've moved to MoVal (you'd be amazed at how much that stretch of the 210 and 10 costs both time and gas-wise), but with my car A/C not being functional, it's a bit of a bitch coming home.

Currently HR Representative for California and Colorado, doing background checks for Arizona, and recruiting/hiring paperwork for Hawaii. Luckily, Hawaii goes away at the end of this month...I'll be training their new rep in a little over a week. She'll be taking full load the 31st...which is good, since I'll be in Colorado to adminster our annual survey, as well as host some meetings/presentations. Work load lately has been extreme, and I've been very tired and worn out.

When not working, I'm playing World of Warcraft (Whisperwind server, Forsaken Mage), StarCraft II, or visiting Pixie Hollow (Sterling Nightstorm, Tinker-Talent, and Garnet Brightchime, Animal-Talent). Hope to go do some cheap fun things (like Castle Park, or Raging Waters) with the kids during this summer, and save up for annual trip with lokiz_mom.

Things I want to do: Go hiking or something. Go to a market night (Redlands or Riverside?) Start writing again. Start dancing again, or join a gym. Work on my PHR certification. Maybe schooling...but not sure whether to go with business stuff or just learn things. (I have discovered the joy of Wikipedia...yay trivial knowledge!)

Still single, and anticipate staying that way. Not ready to look yet; if it happens, it happens...if not, oh well. I'm more fun to talk to anyways. ;)

The Return

The darkness has lain, undisturbed, for many years. No creatures have entered; all lays quiet, forgotten, sleeping.

For the first time in what seems like decades, a sound finally sends shivers through the darkness.

The sound of footsteps. Slow, hesitant footsteps, that nevertheless continue inexorably forward.

A pause, an expectant pause, a pregnant pause...would it give birth to silence once more, or something else.

A soft sound...a sigh of resignation. And the ratcheting sound of a key being inserted into a lock.

The lock gives way reluctantly; although but a few years old, it gives the appearance of being in place for centuries, solid and unmovable. The tumblers click into position, and a final wrench of the key turns the latch.

Two things enter...a breath of the air outside, and light. Light glimmering and dancing on dust that has lain inert and sleeping, now revived with fresh breath from the world outside the confines of this room.

As the dust settles, the light caresses the objects in the room, still glittering with the faerie light of particles dancing in the air. The knowledge is still there, shelved and stored. The workspace remains, open, inviting, yet sleeping. Yet some fear yet holds me back, fear that the fire has left me, that the threads my mind now weaves are but tangled messes compared to the architectural wonders I admire.

No matter. With a breath, I cross the room, sit down at the desk, and with quill in hand, prepare once more to dream.

...but don't have access to a computer on a regular basis. I hope to remedy this sometime soon, but until then, posting will be sporadic. Be advised that my job is going GREAT, I'm happy that Faire is starting, and I'm staying clean. Still single, still insane, and, oh yeah, I have short hair now.

Hope to post in detail soon!

You are kind and merciful but do not play foolish games. (from "The Book of Storms" by Jad Alexander at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Empaths/)

You scored as Angel. Angel: Angels are the guardians of all things, from the smallest ant to the tallest tree. They give inspiration, love, hope, and positive emotion. They live among humans without being seen. They are the good in all things, and if you feel alone, don't fear. They are always watching. Often times they merely stand by, whispering into the ears of those who feel lost. They would love nothing more then to reveal themselves, but in today's society, this would bring havoc and many unneeded questions. Give thanks to all things beautiful, for you are an Angel.

Okay, sorry I haven't been here in a while, but:
1) Getting on the computer is difficult when you live with another gamer dork.
2) I'm addicted to EverQuest and World of Warcraft, so when I do get on, the games usually suck me in. Sorry.

So, where to begin? Faire has been going pretty damn well this year, except that I hurt my back last weekend. (I sneezed too hard and seized my sciatica on my left side...don't laugh.) Found one of my high school lusts on MySpace (unfortunately, he lives in Alabama now). And an 18-year-old in Fontana wants to date me (also thru MySpace). Yes, I know, I have no business dating someone half my age, but he's a cute goth latino boi, and if he thinks this tired Queen is beautiful, I'M NOT GOING TO SAY NO! Hee hee!

Hoping that all of you are in Harmony...but the games are calling...the games...the g a m e s . . .

(connection with upper cerebral functions lost. communication termintated. have a day.)
