Megha, Anna & RayaniAu Tick Tick Crew
Megha, Anna and Rayani are the Au markers. You can usually find at least one of them every day annoying the admins with random questions or making each other tea in the Au kitchens.

If you’re ever bored at Au, go chat to them, they’d be keen to chat about anything and everything. Beware though, if you want them to do dream interpretations, they’ll probably end up giving you a very long lecture on why you shouldn’t end your narratives with “but it was all just a dream”.
