[Plot: Dreams]

[At sunrise, it ends.

Dreamers are interrupted, and they are returned to wherever they were before the hotel herded them all into the bright rotunda. Dreamers retain memories and, sometimes, injuries. But one thing is clear to all of them: They were not sleeping. The feelings from the evening remain, the scents and the sensations. The walks home are recalled, remembered, and there is no avoiding the truth. These things truly happened.

There is no note on the journals, and nothing appears to explain the phenomenon. This time, the Dreamers must figure out the meaning for themselves.]

quicklog: marvel taco shack muerte/eddie

[Chalk white bones were replaced by regular fleshy limbs, funeral suit replaced by jeans, nerdy t-shirt and a black blazer. He still smelled a little like a campfire, sugar and the rust of dried blood, which meant what he went through wasn't a dream. No, it was yet another little party thrown by Passages. He shook his fist up to the sky, cursing the hotel silently as passerby stared at him like he was crazy. He lowered his hand slowly and then looked down the street towards the comic book shop, squinting at the thought of going home (Crap, he needed to not call it that around Muerte. Mental note made!) and decided something else was needed. Margaritas and tacos. He smiled, remembering the time he had found a drunk Muerte with her dark hair tumbled over her shoulder as she could barely take him being so him. Usually the thought of someone not wanting all of this would make him want to get a goddamned lobotomy, but with Muerte it was different. She shushed him with an upturn of her lips and the smirk was a lot brighter than the coy ask for quiet.

So, he left her a message that simply said Taco Shack and made his way a few blocks down to it. Maybe it was way too early for tacos or margaritas, but their new favorite Mexican joint opened for omelettes and that was good enough for him. Even if they were inferior to Gotham omelettes.

When Muerte got there, he was in a back booth, feet up on a nearby chair as he drank coffee and read an actual, honest-to-god newspaper. The whole place was completely empty save him and the guy behind the counter (Marco). Music gently played from a radio on the counter and it wasn't enough to drown out the sizzle of bacon or the crinkle of newspaper. Eddie looked up as the door jingled open and he smiled gently at her. "Can you believe they still make these? Look, it's real paper." He said with amazement as he held up the newspaper like a relic.]

Marvel: News

[Early in the morning, New York City residents in and around Stark Tower report hearing what they describe as "a loud roar", followed by the tremors of a possible earthquake. Shortly thereafter, the reports switch to include broken glass and metal debris raining down to the street below the tower itself. A few calls to the police, from those people looking up at the right (or wrong) time, report something huge and green hurtling from one of the upper levels of the tower. Surprisingly, no other damage or injuries are reported within the city.]

Probably noticed, but Shane took off and Graham never did come when he said he would. Ain't got the slightest clue where Jack got to, and I'm a month behind on this place. Figured there'd be money coming in, but there ain't. Shane ain't inclined to stay where I'm at, and I'm done with these damn men and doing things to make it all fit some. Know this is real inconvenient for you and your girl, but you stay until they sell this place off cheap, and the money should help some after.

Graham'll probably stay with his cousin. Know there's room for you there. Always was, and I shouldn't have gone fussing with it any.

[Steve R - After seeing the news]

I would have thought by now someone would have arranged a playdate for us. But it would seem everyone is a little shy, or there's some secret competition for best hair, or best legs, going on and everyone knew I'd be a shoe in so they decided to keep me at arms length. Sheisty Avengers that they are.

Hi, I'm Bobbi Morse, codename Mockingbird, Also Agent 19, also an Avenger and technically the "co-leader" of the West Coast Avengers, but we all know I'm actually in charge. Clint is just there to look grouchy.

Before arriving here in weird hotel land I was doing some hard time undercover within a HYDRA cell that was parked inside SHIELD, that's kind of my specialty, the undercover bit.

Abilities: numerous and awesome. Brains: PhD in Biology, but you don't have to call me Doctor. I'm a trained SHIELD agent, etc etc etc. Brawn: Hand to hand combat queen, I'm the tallest gymnast you'll ever meet (six feet tall barefoot, you should see me in my gogo boots), preferred weapons are Dolly and Liza which aren't your every day batons, but I'll show you what they can do later.

Super Powers: None. But....Enhancements - this is where it gets a little tricky, you might understand tricky better than most, being Captain America and all.

I got injured on a mission a few years back, so rather than, you know, letting nature take its course they injected me with an experimental serum which was a mixture of Super Soldier Serum (yes that stuff) and Infinity Serum (do they have that where you come from?).

Good news: injuries healed, no wrinkles (I'm older than I look - don't worry you still win the age and beauty contest), I can throw cars.

Bad news: we're not sure yet. None to speak of thus far. But I'm skeptical, there's always bad news. I'm keeping an eye on it. Blood tests etc. I didn't give the okay for this. Was not pleased. But I'm mostly over it, and hey, I can throw cars. Not as far as you can. But I'm working on it. Also enhanced agility, etc.

I can also tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue.

Why am I telling you all this? Because I want to help my friend who is currently big and green. We have a matinee schedule to stick to. And it's my turn to pick. I was going to take him to see Fury Road, but I'm thinking given the current situation we should stick to Dreamworks. Or something really boring. I'm sure Nicholas Sparks has a crapfest out. It's summer. OH! Tomorrowland looks good too.

So, if you need help, I'm around to help. If you need references, Nat, Clint, Sharon, Dr. B (when he's mellower), and all animals love me.

Oh! I used to be married to Clint. But don't hold that against me in the brains department. ;)

Other talents include talking a lot and karaoke.

[Clint B]

Hey, Sport.

[Natasha R]

OMG I had residual Nat jealousy in my not!Dream. It's been a while. Like years. Lets hug. Later because we seem to have a Hulk issue that I am butting my way into whether anyone likes it or not. But lets hug.

Gotham: News

[Gothamites regular television programming is interrupted by Breaking News. The Joker has been moved from Arkham Asylum to Gotham City General Hospital this morning for an unscheduled, emergency surgery. There is no official statement on the state of his injuries at first, but by the afternoon one station gets the inside scoop from an Arkham orderly. The Joker was discovered in his cell this morning with a screwdriver lodged in his chest. Although the criminal was unresponsive, a representative for the Gotham Police ensures that the clown will be under heavily armed guard until he is stable enough to return to Arkham. The entire hospital seems to be on edge. If this is an escape attempt, it is an elaborate one.]
