With all the time differences between Fandom and Glacia, not to mention time spent in other worlds, keeping track of just what day it was could just be asking for a headache. So Raven was very much surprised when one of the staff told her she had visitors, and even more surprised when she went outside and found the wagon and its occupants waiting for her, bearing birthday gifts.

Much later, after making certain that all her visitors had full stomachs and a place to spend the night, Raven retreated to one of the Estate's sitting rooms, Philia curled at her feet. She clutched some of her presents to her chest as she read and re-read the letters from the children. She wasn't crying. The sitting room was just dusty, that was all.

[Open for those in Glacia or text/phone calls, but it's late, so SP will be in effect!]

Behind you having a birthday?

That would be a totally weird alternate universe!

"Wagon load of..." Momoko broke out in all smiles and hugged her phone.

Nope! I only asked if they could send you a note! Anything else was on their own!

"Silly Raven," Momoko fondly muttered at her phone.

You are loved. Sorry to break it to you!

Eeeeeek!! that's awesome!!

Momoko giggled happily. She wished she could have seen Raven's face when she got a whole wagon of gifts!

What did they get you?

//Something in your eye, hm?// Jono looked maybe the faintest bit amused through all of the tired that he'd been tamping down lately, as he stood in the doorway to the sitting room, arms crossed over his chest, small wrapped box in one hand. //We'll have to talk to the hearth witches about cleaning this room more thoroughly. Evening, Sunshine. I noticed you had company earlier, and didn't want to interrupt, but if you're too busy now for one more visitor...//

//Well, then I suppose we can let them off the hook just this once, hm?// Jono made his way into the room slowly, so as to not startle Philia, and crouched down for a moment to let the dog sniff at his hand before smiling back up at Raven. //I hope you had a lovely day, Raven. You deserve those every now and again, after all. Your birthday seems a good time for it.//

//Paper dolls, hm?// Jono gave a little nod of approval as he looked over the toy. //You've done a lot for them, Sunshine. I'm not surprised they're so eager to show you they care. They can't praise you enough, when I get the opportunity in edgewise to get down to teach them a bit of self-defense.//

Because in Kaeleer, it certainly couldn't hurt.

//You're handling it better than I did on my birthday,// he added, a touch wryly. //I hid.//

She probably remembered, Jono. The birthday sex had been fantastic.

The gifts weren't done coming yet!

Hannibal smiled as he came to stand in the doorway. "I'm afraid I didn't know it was your birthday until Jono mentioned it to me." So she'd just get what was to be her Christmas gift now, and he would have to buy another. "I thought I might visit and bring you this in person." He held out his own small box.

Along with the present, there was a card:

To a complex, beautiful lady:

In the legends of the people this comes from, Raven is a benevolent creator deity and a protector of humanity. And also a trickster who would test and punish those who needed it, and a prideful being who is occasionally selfish or silly. Even gods are not required to be all one thing, and they and the world are better for it.

Wear this in good health.

Affectionately,

Hannibal

"You're very welcome." Hannibal dug a small piece of jerky out of his pocket and held it out to Philia, letting her sniff it and his hand first. "And it seems as good a day as any; the purpose is to celebrate your life, and everybody should have one of those, approximate or not."

Hannibal was good at gaining trust by feeding people people!

"Others such as Jono?" Hannibal asked, chuckling. "He doesn't think he's worthy of celebrating; that just means that his friends need to remind him he is."

And the parade of well-wishing wasn't over yet.

"I can't help but notice a wagon full of presents roll up to my front door," Karla said from Raven's doorway. She was trying to sound cross, but her eyes were twinkling. "Rude. I hate being outclassed."

And it was the very worst, wasn't it, Philla? Karla missed being able to do that, too. So much. So, so much.

Granted, she was pulling a treat out of her pocket to give to her, but it wasn't the saaaame.

"An army of toddlers, hmm?" she asked, winking at Raven even as she continued to scratch Philla's velvety ears. Greeting pets should never be rushed. "You're not inciting them to revolt, are you? I don't think I could handle losing Glacia to Toddler Treason."

If the pretty golden one had had her way, Philla would be roughly spherical and unable to do more than waddle. It was probably best that Nemit had taken the place of Cora's birdie in the girl's heart, or Karla would have likely ruined him, too.

"By the time they're teenager, I'm sure they'll be able to come up with their own reasons to riot and revolt. That's what teens do, that, and running off to get themselves killed at the tiniest provocation."

Well, that's what they'd done as teens. Which they no longer were. Which reminded Karla of the real reason why she was here, besides her never-ending quest to buy Philla's affection with treats.

"So, I hear happy birthdays are in order?" she teased. "I'm not supposed to tell, but Ermengarde's taken some time out of Winsol preparation to cook you some kind of amazing dinner. Shh, be surprised."
