varian - pasifika

It’s been two weeks since Varian showed you their cross-stitching, and you’re back at the Pond today to see what books (and costume!) Varian is going to show you today.

You approach their spot in the Pond, but they don’t look like they are there. You crane your neck, looking around, when you hear —

“Hello friend!”

You jump, startled! Varian was standing by a flower bush of red flowers, and they blended right in! Varian is wearing a dress, with red flowers sewn onto its ruff collar!

Varian the toad wearing a green leafy dress, with red flowers. Holding a flag with the words #APAHM on the flag.Seeing you jump, they chuckle. “I’m sorry to have scared you, friend. I wanted to surprise you – really surprise you! – with my new costume. I suppose I am getting better because I blended in with Gen’s flowers.” They pull at the collar slightly, and adjust the red flower so it sits up right. “But I really wanted to make a costume befitting for the books I want to share with you today!”

Oh yes! The books! You were so bedazzled by Varian’s dress you completely forgot. Now you are definitely excited to hear about the books they have to share with you today.

Hello friends, and welcome back to the Pond! đź’›

Welcome to another one of Varian’s recommendation posts. In case you’re new to the Pond’s recommendation posts, the recommendation posts are brought to you by Varian, the Pond’s very own Toadshifter who is knowledgeable in all kinds of magic! One of Varian’s ambitions is to get better at sewing, hence why whenever Varian has shown you their latest costume, they will always recommend a book that inspired that costume.
