To know Adena is to know laughter and joy. This woman embodies merriment and hard work. Literally from the moment of her birth, she has been a part of the society in Ansteorra. In the years I have known her, she has been an unceasing whirlwind of contribution and labor – she doesn’t see the things she does as work, she sees them as fun things to do with friends. I have seen her spend hours working on event set up until early into the morning, then spend an entire day heralding a list and waterbearing simultaneously, and then work in the kitchen for several hours – and think nothing of it, because she’s just ‘having fun’. ‘Dini’s hospitality knows no bounds, and she welcomes those new to our Dream with open arms. Adena is an example to me of remembering the joy and fun in the SCA. 09:10, 24 September 2012 (PDT)

Susan the Curious

No shit, this one time at Rundel, Adena kept catching on fire. I think it was the last Rundel and was the one that Aethelred of the Broken Shield gave me some bad moonshine. I entertained myself by flicking it into the fire to see all of the pretty colors. But did I mention that Deenie kept catching on fire, over and over again? I think the "Flaming Deanies" were born at that event.
Ekaterina Stepanova doch' Novgorodskaia adds: (For the record, it was cold and she had a fleece blanket on her lap, covering her feet, and the sparks kept landing on it and smoldering. But saying that she was on fire was more fun.)
The Flaming Dini: everclear and strawberry/cranberry juice

Kyna Terricsdottir

One time, Adena Terricsdottir was at Gulf War, and SHE decided that it would be a GREAT idea TO STEAL A BOAT! Where did this boat come from... why, TRIMARIS of course!

Ophelia Warde

Adena is a very talented in embroidery! She loves to teach and share anything she knows! She is very kind and approachable! She is a natural Hospitaler! She is funny and always has a smile on her face!
