I like a lot of their songs, but some make me say "Haha no." I'm actually really varied in musical taste. I like listening to some Billy Joel songs, some Plain White Tees (just a few), Snow Patrol (just a few), and even the Fray (just a few tho).

Apple darts through the Tower doors as quickly as possible and slams them tight against the wind. A gust of snow follows him inside anyway; Alice frowns and the babies fuss. "Just the way the winter is, my dears . . . Your Holiness! Have you had private contact with 'The Monster Kingdom'? I have nothing on them in our recent records."
The great white dragon doesn't stir at all as she replies, straight into her assistant's mind, No. What do they want?
"Well, 'establish relations,' apparently." Apple brushes a not-so-light dusting of snow off the letter and raises his eyebrows. "Apparently they want friendly relations so much they made no attempt at your titles or your name . . ."

Apple reddens and gapes like a fish for a moment before complying. "'Hello leader of brethren I am the king of the monster kingdom and I would like to establish relations with your great nation I hope the two of us get along.' And that is all, Your Holiness."
The Archdolphop groans aloud. Send for Charity then. She might have the patience for another load of mess . . .
"Of course, Your Holiness." Apple bows and hastens to compose a letter of reply.
Dear King of the Monster Kingdom, We are honoured by your request. Simply give us directions and we will send our most honoured elder to speak with you.
In Sacred Peace, Tower Scribes

At least Jordan stays consistently in the main room where he's surrounded by benevolent adults. After all, things are bright and interesting there and he can make terrible messes out of sliced banana.
Another letter comes in) it says we are on two islands next to Osterreich Und Ungarn also I am very new to interacting with other nations since we were isolated underground for 1,000 years and only now coming out trying to explore surrounding land masses but still I wish Good Fortune for you and good luck/also I don't know how to do the same thing as you
Clara runs a hand over Charlie's shoulder. "I think I know where you want to go . . . ?" Jordan has been stowed away in his playpen and is bouncing up and down quite happily, holding the monkey close to his face. "We can roast marshmallows in the fire pit and you get a break."
