Glamourous Glamours

Mag and me develop our glamours over time. Sometimes, we happen to have matching outfits, like these Ravana weapons:

After obtaining the weapon, I needed a real outfit, not just a pyjama with Moogle slippers.

Sometimes, I sat with Mag at the Idyllshire fountain, waiting for the lil Miqo girl to show up.

Usually, she didn’t come, but the time spent together was still nice.

My Astrologian has a new, magical weapon.

Whenever I draw a card, it stops glowing though o.o;

Yet, my overall outfit looks amazing. RIGHT?!

More glamours to come!

Just a friend

So, my Weaver Guildmaster told me, I should go and make my weaving famous in Ishgard. Not like I was already famous there for crafting various other items, but he didn’t have to know everything.

He told me to use my affiliation with House Fortemps to make myself a name there.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 01

So I walked through town to see if anyone needed some stitching.

Soon I found a young lady who was forced by her mom to become a weaver btu she actually wanted to be a chirurgeon – a White Mage.

I was all like: Why not both?!

Somehow, this was impossible for people of the land to have two jobs at the same time.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 02

So she told me about her friend with whom she wanted to go out into battle and ensure that he wouldn’t die out there. Especially since he was a little clumsy.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 04

Right, so this was her “friend”. Right.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 05

I talked some courage into them and they agreed to openly talk to her mother about it.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 06

Needless to say, the mother was furious.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 07

But then, suddenly, she became calm and all understanding. She told her daughter for the first time about her husband. She had been a healer too, just like her daughter wanted to be now. And she had been fighting with her husband all along. But then…

2015-06-19 WVR HW 08

It was a tragic past that had marked the mother for life. But protecting the child by forbidding them to follow their dreams is not an option. It’s not real protection. Real protection is to be skilled in your job and fighting with friends that you can rely on! ò.ó

2015-06-19 WVR HW 09

And so, the young couple left town to follow their dreams.

 

Bearproof clothing

My Letherworker Guildmaster called me to her. She had received a letter form an old friend who had a leather clothes and shoes store in Ishgard and I was to help her out.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 01

So I went there and she asked me to make the finest shoes Gridanian style. They were something really new on the ishgardian market and would surely sell really well.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 02

So I made some really cool boots and the shop owner had a bard advertise them.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 03

It was kinda embarassing.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 04

After that, the store received so many requests, they could barely follow up.

A few weeks later, they asked me to make armor so flexible but strong at the same time, no enemy should be able to rip through it.

No problem.

I made the armor and they had some guy working for the store get hit by a bear in order to test it.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 05

The armor was bearproof. No claw could get through it and the guy stayed unharmed.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 06

But then the bear aimed for the guy’s unprotected head!!

2015-06-19 LTW HW 07

He ran for his life and the guards rushed to his aid.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 08

Of course, he was saved but he had suffered quite the shock.

If he had only let me craft some awful looking coif. it would have protected him and he wouldn’t have had run from the enemy. But no, the ishgardiands didn’t approve of coifs either.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 09

Anyway, this is how I became known in Ishgard as the bearproof Master-Letherworker from Gridania.

The Music Box

I was called to my Goldmithing Master as she had a quest for me.

While she was really happy to see me and my progress in goldsmithing…

2015-06-19 GSM HW 01

…Gigi on the other hand only had harsh words for me!

Some things just don’t change.

2015-06-19 GSM HW 02

I just left to meet the client. <.< Why don’t you do it yourself, Gigi?!!

It was a Lady Roga and actually a Gentleman Roga. Both wanted to give each other some present – but separately and not knowing the other one was preparing someting too.

2015-06-19 GSM HW 03

But what did they want? They couldn’t really state it but then, the Goldsmith Shop Owner had an idea:

2015-06-19 GSM HW 04

So I prepared a super lovely music box, wrapped it, and called both clients to the adventurer’s guild.

2015-06-19 GSM HW 05

There, they unwrapped the present and found a lovely music box that would play a meaningful song!

2015-06-19 GSM HW 06

They were so touched by it, that they forgot everything around them. So romantic ö.ö

2015-06-19 GSM HW 07

In the end, they thanked us for bringing them even closer together again.

Now what should I give Mag as present in order to spend some romantic time together? :O

 

Why I decided to only eat food that I really enjoy and like

Little Melkoko from the Restaurant in Limsa was in big trouble.

Her chef had become really over-confident and would andly cook whatever he wanted.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 01

So that’s the awful chef.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 02

And that’s an unhappy pirate-guest.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 03

The only solution was a big battle of the cooks to decide who is the best one. According to Melkoko, this would help her chef to realize he had still much to learn.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 04

So we organized some jury and I cooked some super tasty meal that he had to try. He was known as the really grumpy and picky jury person.

He praised my rival’s meal with 8/10.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 05

And then, he tried mine.

WHEN SUDDENLY…

2015-06-19 CUL HW 06

He jumped up and rose his hands into the air.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 07

His face showed pure joy.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 08

He started floating in the 7th heaven with the starter meal flying above his belly. It was so delicate and refreshing!

2015-06-19 CUL HW 09

He continued to the main course and decided to have a nap on the really well cooked chicken breast with potatos and vegetables. Uniquely seasoned and wich a self-made sauce.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 10

The dessert…

For dessert, Moogles camy flying!

2015-06-19 CUL HW 11

It was so awesome, even the moogles wanted to eat my dessert!

2015-06-19 CUL HW 12

Together, they flew off into the 10th heaven of awesomely tasting food.

2015-06-19 CUL HW 13

Needless to say, the juror gave me 10/10 points.

My rival was crushed and he realized, he was still young and had a lot to learn.

I had only cooked my mom’s recipes. She’s such a good cook ö.ö

2015-06-19 CUL HW 14

In the end, the chef took off for a journey through the world in order to learn more.

Melkoko would miss him but she promised to wait forever – and a day – for him.

Sounded more to me like they were lvoers than work buddies… ö.ö

2015-06-19 CUL HW 15

And that was when I realized, if you have the choice you should always eat great meals. Why settle with something that tastes “alright” if you could have something really tasty that lets you fly into the heaven of tastyness?
