Salon Planning, Unedited Transcripts

Forks! with the Aether Salon Staff (Unedited)

Viv Trafalgar: Apparently, Ordinal’s posting something about Salon on her blog sooner or later
Viv Trafalgar: though she regrets she can’t be here.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Pity.
Viv Trafalgar: Yes. Personal obligation. Something about the bee gun falling into the wrong hands.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Huh. Coulda sworn I got a Salon sash, but I can’t find it in my inventory.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Oh, dear–that’s not good!
Viv Trafalgar: She said she’d try to stop by once the complaints from the UN had ceased
Jasper Kiergarten: for speaking, Book?
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Jasper Kiergarten: search for Sash (Female)
Bookworm Hienrichs: I looked for Sash, but the only two showing up are in outfits.
Jasper Kiergarten: hmm
Jasper Kiergarten: did you speak in 09 ot 10, Book?
Bookworm Hienrichs: 2010 and 2011, actually.
Jasper Kiergarten: ah ok
Viv Trafalgar: hmph
Viv Trafalgar: you should have at least 1
Bookworm Hienrichs: I know I had one. I did wear it once.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Either I accidently deleted it, or SL did it for me.
Bookworm Hienrichs smiles wryly.
Viv Trafalgar: Hee. This is the first time I’ve ever been sitting on stage.
Bookworm Hienrichs gets a picture of that for posterity.
Viv Trafalgar: You’re taking photos of my posterior?
Vic Mornington: hmmmmm brb somethins up with the dang dance machine
Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
Bookworm Hienrichs: And thank you, Mr. Kiergarten.

Viv Trafalgar: nah. i’m good here
Viv Trafalgar: you should sit here too
Sera: k
Viv Trafalgar: I’ll tell you when you need to get up
Bookworm Hienrichs thinks all 4 of you should sit there.
Viv Trafalgar: I completely agree
Sera: yep. Good idea
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Peg!
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Woot!
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Young Blood!
Jedburgh30 Dagger: sorry, I love this song

Jedburgh30 Dagger: I’m maudlin for the lot of us
Bookworm Hienrichs is giggling like mad at the Jimmy Stewart drunk scene in ‘The Philadelphia Story.’

Viv Trafalgar: We’re about to begin, if you can take your seats
Ceejay Writer: Gabi, me too. The grey is slowly becoming salon folk.

Blackberry Harvey: Hello Miss Ceejay
Charon Heliosense smiles back and bows once more in thanks.

Ceejay Writer: Hi Blackberry!
Simeon Beresford: half my world seems to have disapeared
Bookworm Hienrichs: Do move forward a little, Mr. Heliosense, onto the pattern, to be sure you hear everything.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Can everyone hear me?
Bookworm Hienrichs smiles.
Elilka Sieyes nods to Miss Jed
Darlingmonster Ember: nods
Ceejay Writer tugs at sash, grumbling that it has ‘shrunk’ in two years.
Charon Heliosense does as bid and moves closer to the kind lady in his favorite color.
Jedburgh30 Dagger shouts: Step onto the maze to ensure hearing the speaker
Rhianon Jameson: They tend to do that, I’m told, Miss Ceejay.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: clears throat
Ceejay Writer smies at Miss Jameson and nods.

Jedburgh30 Dagger: As many of you know, the Aether Salon met to discuss steam and Victorian topics on the third Sunday of each month, in Palisades and Academy, New Babbage. This is the 28th and final salon under the direction of the founding staff. While I hope you are all excited to be here, I know that I stand before you with mixed emotions.
Solace Fairlady cheers

Breezy Carver Fabre (breezy.carver) big smile
Viv Trafalgar grins and nods approvingly
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Just a few matters of housekeeping before we get started. If you are standing in the back, please move forward onto the maze so that you can be assured of hearing the speaker. Please hold your questions until the end, and as a courtesy to all, please turn off everything that feeds the lag: all HUDs, scripts, AOs and so on. Please no rags, bones, bottles, rhythm, music, or unauthorized versions of ‘Porgy and Bess’. Since this is my last introduction, I will take the time to say that this was my bit to make something close to a relevant wisecrack, typically taken from the week’s events in the Steamlands, or ‘real life’. Yes, I picked the non-Euclydian geometry and several of the other ‘things’ here…so…Your cooperation is appreciated.
Breezy Carver Fabre stands straight
Bookworm Hienrichs grins.
Sera golf claps
Darlingmonster Ember smiles
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Edited and unedited transcripts will be posted this week on so you can revisit today’s merriment, read transcripts of past salons, and for a laugh, peruse “overheard at the salon.” Please join the Aether Salon group and receive notifications of future salon events, click the lower right hand corner of the large brown sign by the entrance. We sincerely appreciate the support we receive from everyone in the community and we humbly thank you all.
Ceejay Writer: Always loved the warnings.
Jimmy Branagh: ((kback))
Jedburgh30 Dagger: The thank you section will be covered during my talk, so I will be skipping that bit for the moment.
Rhianon Jameson whispers, “You missed all the good stuff, Jimmy.”
Viv Trafalgar: hee
Jimmy Branagh: Awwww darn it …
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Yes, several of you will either be embarrassed or not speaking to me afterwards
Vic Mornington😮
Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
Gabrielle Riel takes out her notepad
Ceejay Writer: YAY!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach chuckles
Viv Trafalgar raises eyebrows
Sera eyerolls
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Now I will turn the stage over to Miss Viv for my introduction. Since she said I couldn’t do it myself, or risk sounding like Charlie Sheen…
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Viv?
Elilka Sieyes: Win 😉
Vic Mornington bursts out laughing
Bookworm Hienrichs coughs back a laugh.
Viv Trafalgar: Who doesn’t love Charlie Sheen?
Viv Trafalgar: Thank you all for coming today!
Ceejay Writer stifles…. such a look.
Viv Trafalgar: Before I introduce our speaker, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart.
Viv Trafalgar: You’ve been an amazing part of Salon and we couldn’t have done it without you,
Viv Trafalgar: our witty audience

Viv Trafalgar: Love you guys.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach smiles
Ceejay Writer: (okay I will turn off that lagmonster now)
Linus Lacombe thinks the Steamlands without the Salon will be lik tea without crumpets. But thank you all for so many great memories!
Viv Trafalgar: hahah.
Viv Trafalgar: Oh, and Wait until you see what Jasper’s done for a craft.
Sera: It is impressive!
Viv Trafalgar: Now, To our Speaker:
Blackberry Harvey‘s ears perk as he hears someone think of crumpets
Viv Trafalgar cracks her knuckles
Jedburgh30 Dagger cringes
Viv Trafalgar: It is my great pleasure to introduce the intrepid ironclad captain,
Viv Trafalgar: as well as best friend a salonista could have,
Viv Trafalgar: and generally the only person ever allowed to bear arms at Salon,
Viv Trafalgar: Miss Jedburgh Dagger.
Darlingmonster Ember: yay

Ceejay Writer: Woo hoo!
Rhianon Jameson claps
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach applauds
Jimmy Branagh applauds loudly
Solace Fairlady: Hooo
Viv Trafalgar: Others know her as a builder and developer.

Jimmy Branagh: Yay Miss Jed!
Aisling Sinclair claps and smiles
Magdalena Kamenev claps!
Viv Trafalgar: and, most importantly someone who always has my back.
Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.
Viv Trafalgar: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Miss Dagger.
Ceejay Writer chuckles and makes tsk tsk noises.

Rhianon Jameson applauds
Sera applauds wildly, almost falling off her perch
Solace Fairlady cheers
Kimika Ying: cheers and applauds
Blackberry Harvey: Hurrah!
Jimmy Branagh claps and roars
Saffia Widdershins applauds
Jedburgh30 Dagger: It is a far different thing to be back up here as a speaker
Jedburgh30 Dagger: I know many of you who are our long time Salonistas are used to me being the stern sister or the smart aleck intro chick…
Simeon Beresford: Courage!
Jedburgh30 Dagger: I would like to take you back to a time when all of this was just a dream.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: (and no, not the time my sinus medicine kicked in…)
Ceejay Writer makes the wiggly fingered backflash signal.
Viv Trafalgar makes the bill & ted noise
Vic Mornington chuckles
Viv Trafalgar: and the waynes’ world noise too (which is what I meant to do)
Rhianon Jameson giggles
Darlingmonster Ember: grins
Simeon Beresford: hmms doctor who theme
Jedburgh30 Dagger: During the 18th century, the place to discuss politics, or science, or art, was at the local coffee house
Vic Mornington: COFFEE!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Heh.
Ceejay Writer: Oh, sorry.
Sera: chuckles
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Time lords don’t exist Simeon
Darlingmonster Ember: mmmmm caffe
Vic Mornington chuckles
Jedburgh30 Dagger: The coffee houses of London were full of humor and spirited discussion
Jedburgh30 Dagger: For those of you into the Georgian era, get a copy of Boswell’s London Diary.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Anyways, as time went by, artists and intellectuals would gather to discuss art and ideas…
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Thus was born the concept of the salon in the Victorian era.
Ceejay Writer nods, smiling a lot.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: So…segway to a smoky digital city, in 2008
Blackberry Harvey: Coffee truly is the source of everything.
Gabrielle Riel: 2008….so long ago…
Vic Mornington nods
Elilka Sieyes: Time flies! 0.o
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Someone had an idea, that Second Life could be about more than just poseballs and bling
Ceejay Writer: Quite the shocking notion at the time.
Skye McLeod (skye.fairywren): smiles
Darlingmonster Ember: ideas will be the death of us
Darlingmonster Ember nods sagely
Magdalena Kamenev whispers, “We’re doomed … DOOMED!”
Jedburgh30 Dagger: That it could be possible to discuss real topics of import and historical things relevant to the steampunk era we found ourselves in
Jedburgh30 Dagger: The story of the Aether Salon has been the idea of one, embraced by others and carried forward by the community.
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: While Viv would be quick to point out that the crew she brought together carried the Salon to where it is now, it was her idea that made all of this happen.
Viv Trafalgar points that out quickly, about the carrying
Rhianon Jameson laughs
Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
Vic Mornington chuckles
Darlingmonster Ember smiles
Jedburgh30 Dagger: So the first Salon was in October, and was topically about Curses in New Babbage…
Vic Mornington😮
Ceejay Writer: I remember that one.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: I was asked to speak, as I had been involved in a roleplay scenario that ‘grew legs and ran’, much as Mr Undertone’s fish story did later.
Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.
Ceejay Writer wonders when wiggyfish grew legs and ran.
Vic Mornington would be worried if wiggyfish grew legs and ran…
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Sidebar-yes the wiggyfish all of you now know as a Babbage staple was just a one off idea that became much larger than anyone expected.
Ceejay Writer: the best ideas are of that sort of start.
Ceejay Writer lowers gaze at Saffia and thinks of the Quest.
Saffia Widdershins grins
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Anyway, so we had out first Salon, I spoke a bit with Beq about our quest to recover the Necklace of Harmonia.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: It grew from there, and became a much larger and well thought out affair, with slide shows, and props…
Rhianon Jameson: Props. Indeed.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Many of you learned about submarines, and underwear, and music, and science…
Ceejay Writer: undercrackers.
Vic Mornington: O.O
Skye McLeod : eeps
Viv Trafalgar: (thinks Miss Jed just wanted to mention submersibles and undercrackers in the same sentence)
Jedburgh30 Dagger: I know many of theattendees have been speakers
Charon Heliosense murmurs “I must have issed the underwear salaon… maybe one of you could demonstrate later….”
Jasper Kiergarten: (thinks Viv is right)
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Great. Now I have submarines in underwear stuck in my head…
Jedburgh30 Dagger: coughs
Viv Trafalgar: (ooops)
Vic Mornington: XD
Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
Darlingmonster Ember: is better than the…nevermind
Rhianon Jameson: Imagine the audience clothed, then. It might help.
Skye McLeod : heh heh
Ceejay Writer: Scandal.
Kimika Ying whispers: *sings quietly to herself, “…these are a few of my favorite things..”
Solace Fairlady: is that a submarine in your underwear….
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Whay I hope is that all of you saw the seamless, informative, well presented things we hoped you would all see.
Tubby looks around
Tubby: ooh, no food…
Tubby runs
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Jimmy Branagh wonders why anyone would put a submarine in their underwear.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Ironically, the bit you just heard is what normally goes on in the staff chat
Viv Trafalgar: ::quietly nudges the salon back to focus on the speaker::
Vic Mornington chuckles
Viv Trafalgar: IT does NOT
Viv Trafalgar: mcuh
Viv Trafalgar: much
Rhianon Jameson: The secret is out!
Ceejay Writer blinks and gazes upon Jed.
Bookworm Hienrichs snickers.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: often
Darlingmonster Ember: snerks
Viv Trafalgar: ::quietly nudges the salon to focus on the far wall, away from the speaker::
Jedburgh30 Dagger: We have a good time doing this. In spite of some of the things we’ve had happen
Magdalena Kamenev: In spite?
Jedburgh30 Dagger: I want to thank our EMs
Jedburgh30 Dagger: I do know we had restarts on the sim in this location before we started on some occasions, because of the “where did the Academy go” incident
Elilka Sieyes: 🙂
Jedburgh30 Dagger: I think we came close to crashing the sim when we were just in Palisades
Ceejay Writer thinks that was a bit fun.
Vic Mornington: wasnt my fault!
Simeon Beresford: looks innocent
Jasper Kiergarten: some griefers too :/
Rhianon Jameson fails to look innocent, even though she *is* innocent.
Ceejay Writer: Two words. Bob and Bombs.
Magdalena Kamenev: Bah! Target practice! Extemporaneous target practice.
Viv Trafalgar laughs and laughs and cries and cries
Jedburgh30 Dagger: One thing I’d like to say is thank Sera for all the work she did in preparing the transcripts
Darlingmonster Ember: nods
Ceejay Writer: WILD APPLAUSE
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach applauds
Vic Mornington cheers
Jimmy Branagh applauds
Sky Melnik nods and claps for Sera
Ceejay Writer: It is REALLY hard work! Really!
Darlingmonster Ember applauds
Blackberry Harvey: Woo!
Solace Fairlady huzzahs!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: That is ponderous work.
Bookworm Hienrichs applauds Sera enthusiastically.
Violet MacMoragh cheers
Magdalena Kamenev claps!
Jedburgh30 Dagger: She has to deal with all the AO chatter, and fruity comments, and god knows what all else
Saffia Widdershins applauds
Kimika Ying: applause!
Serra Anansi: Applause Applause!!!
Blackberry Harvey: Fruity comments? I resemble that
Rhianon Jameson: “Fruity comments”? Sounds like sour grapes.
Ceejay Writer really likes peaches.
Viv Trafalgar applauds Sera madly
Simeon Beresford: so much work!
Magdalena Kamenev looks for bad apples in the room.
Sera: What? looks up from her paper
Simeon Beresford: goes bananas
Jedburgh30 Dagger: So staff-wise, Jasper and I were here all along, doing stuff behind the scenes…and I know that they have been a lot of fun to work with
Jedburgh30 Dagger: Again, there are so many things we have to do to pull this off and make it look smooth and professional. I hope we succeeded, most of the time 🙂
Sky Melnik grins
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach applauds
Darlingmonster Ember: oh yes
Darlingmonster Ember: quite
Darlingmonster Ember applauds
Ceejay Writer: A success EVERY time, yes.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: We have had a good time, even if it is a lot of stress and work on the hundreds of things that you folks never saw
Jimmy Branagh applauds
Solace Fairlady nods enthusiastically
Solace Fairlady applauds
Gabrielle Riel: The unsung heroic moments 🙂
Saffia Widdershins applauds
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Viv Trafalgar: Oh someone was usually singing in the background…
Gabrielle Riel grins
Jedburgh30 Dagger: We have dealt with church musicals, stormy weather, vacation, wifi outages, last minute cancellations…
Jedburgh30 Dagger: and the occasional “I was doing what this time?”
Viv Trafalgar: Giant Frogs!
Ceejay Writer: And bob.
Viv Trafalgar: And Bob
Jimmy Branagh chuckles
Jedburgh30 Dagger: …and Bob
Vic Mornington: bob chuckles
Sera laughs
Violet MacMoragh snickers
Bookworm Hienrichs: One doesn’t need to say more than his name, does one?
Bookworm Hienrichs grins.
Ceejay Writer: Nope!
Viv Trafalgar hopes the Salon doesn’t catch fire just because we’ve invoked him.
Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
Jedburgh30 Dagger: I miss the little guy. For those of you who didn’t know, he was a big supporter of salon back-channel, and was…Bob in character
Viv Trafalgar: Agreed
Ceejay Writer: smiles and nods and quietly misses her stinky friend
Jedburgh30 Dagger: He is the reason there is a strict no weapon policy now.
Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.
Sky Melnik looks down at her belt and tries to hide her decorative weaponry :-/
Heim Ormenthal hides his swords by sitting on them
Simeon Beresford: an acheivement to be proud of
Solace Fairlady drapes her gown over her daggers
Viv Trafalgar: Better than Falling on them Mr. Ormenthal
Rhianon Jameson fails again to look innocent
Jedburgh30 Dagger: So as time went on, we got better at what we did, and developed the now-familiar format that you now “enjoy”
Jimmy Branagh watches his thumbs twiddle
