To [personal profile] polishfan:

I think I promised yavanite stories? If you're there.

I had a good day, I mean - I did better than I have in a long time, and I'm still awake. I guess it's a normal thing and not a can't sleep thing sometimes.

Definitely always up for those. Let's hear what you've got. I'm being boring and waiting on paint to dry, so...

A couple variations on it now. I've got a few more samples I've wanted to drag in for a couple days, but the craft store had a few things run over and I got a few extra shifts out of the deal, so not a BAD tradeoff, really. I think they're going to have to end up paying me in materials someday, but my restraint levels are good so far.

I'm one of the reading everything I can and then bugging people I know know more about it for information types. And if there's things I can relate it to, that helps a lot. I've been doing more than usual with labor disputes in Wales lately, and it helped to find a couple figures to relate things back to, so corners I can see. I've found accounts of someone from the perspective of the miners there, but I'm looking to track down something from the police or government.

Unfortunately...Victoria. Not exactly something they wanted to give a lot of press to, good OR bad, that they couldn't control an outer colony, so... I've found a few newspaper things but...

Tell me more about Yavanite mining though. Mostly I've heard about the ill effects from people, from Enjolras who has been learning about it a bit more.

...That's horrifying. I'm sort of dreading when it's cold enough to need heat here. I don't think the landlady is really fond of the idea of me dragging anything portable in and I've got a sort of garret. I may end up having to spend the winter months with a few people from work somewhere with better heat. It worked out last year and I was able to come back, no problems. So...

Ooh something Lorena inspired? That does sound like it might be a neat idea. Capitolizing on that sort of market, maybe. Things to send home to spouses and friends, sort of? That could be neat.

And...I take it the safety regulations are pretty much non existent at all? I hope it's not the sort of thing that requires a mass disaster before someone notices. I think that's what your Ms. Moore is preventing? Or hoping to prevent?

I would like that a lot. It'd be nice to talk to someone and get out for a bit. And I'll probably bring one along too. I would really enjoy it.

It makes a lot of sense, when it comes to tourism possibly. People always do want to go to where action is, even when it may or may not be the safe option. Something about the whole hunter-adventurer instinct that never leaves people alone, I'd SUPPOSE.

That makes sense. Harder to enforce regs but outside of the mines, it IS better to make sure that life is going on well. Change the things that you can, right? I can understand how that works.

And that is quite the history. Impressive.

I would definitely, if you turn up leads. It's a bit of time to work towards so...

It's fine if you do.

The factories...they aren't always the best, no. They used to be worse, I WILL give them that for improving. It's funny how we always credit progress, but we don't always know what we're doing exactly, do we? I mean sometimes, unless you want to put the work in...things get dire sometimes. Kids get hurt and killed fairly often, and until some changes started to be made...Grim places.

I heard Victoria's worse for it, myself. I'm not sure I could say offhand, but the numbers coming out of there are HUGE. It's sort of hard to say, but they do produce a lot so the numbers probably do skew a bit. And it IS profitable isn't it? Bottom lines and...I worry.

Basement or anything too dark, preferably with a window for fumes if possible.

I can imagine it was...pretty bad. I'm mostly usually just wired. And hey, learning about things can help you conquer them, right? that's theory? I'm not sure I totally agree with that, but...

They really really are. I mean honestly, if anything needed more reform than that. And then, when you stop being useful...well... there's not much done there. Easier to get out, for what it saves you.

And, oh, hey, I can dig out a map, get a look around. Walks can take a bit, probably, after things. But when you're ready, I'll meet you.
