While I've heard of arcane rituals that can produce extensive delusions, nothing in this world has the markers of a dream, or an injury to the head. I hunger, I thirst, I feel as a human man. This is well-beyond my learnings, I'm afraid, but that is hardly cause for fear! I am eager to learn what this place has to offer, and how I may assist those who require it.

My name is Alfred, of the Executioner Covenant. From Yharnam, if you have heard of that once-great city, with all the common afflictions and ambitions of a Yharnam citizen. Is this place without a Church? I did not hear one mentioned. If there is a problem of beasts, I will be only too happy to assist in their eradication.

I thank you for your kindness and hospitality, Jaha. I am to be rooming in 505O with a Sir Barnes, Sir Murdock, and Sir Nelson? My gratitude for your taking me in.

Veronica Mars, what have you got yourself into this time?

"It was never supposed to be this way." I figured I was done being shocked by the way life rips away my agency, that I'd never be so naive as to write those words in a journal, but here we are: four for you, Pod God, you got me good. I spent the last three years of my life trying to save enough money to get out of Neptune and now I'm so far from it that I can't find my way back.

Cry more, Veronica. Everyone's got a sob story. The ones who don't are the ones making them for other people. Now do what you do best, and detect.

Work's fine. Nathan W's one of the Specials - that's going to be the watchword from here on out for 'people who have something notable about them that may or may not be biologically improbable'. Sorry journal, I'm still too fresh to write "magic" down as a legitimate thing - but I don't know how, and I like him too much to snoop. He had some hints about how home was more of this same. At least I know what Rogue's trying to conquer. No handshakes of congratulations for her anytime soon, but at least she's angry. Anger is good. Hope lets you down, time and time again, but anger's always available to spur you on.

Back home Neptune's finest used to say "no body, no problem" as a way to keep from caring about teenage runaways under a certain income bracket. We're up to our eyeballs in bodies, here. Duplicates of that British woman, the ghosts of this mountain we're not supposed to talk about, characters from Harry Potter that died years and years and years ago and are back up walking around. Join them, Veronica. Be a body. Blend. If your story in Neptune's been put on hold, write a new one. And stop missing Dad

FYI, I dropped 'hallucination' from my vocabulary when talking about you guys. Way too many syllables, and is it even true? EH. Does 'people' work? I think it works.

My goodness, I didn't think it'd get this chilly in this mountain. I'm getting to the point where I might need to get someone to cuddle with me. You won't be bored, though, I promise. I'll sing for you, and act out some scenes from memory, all for your entertainment.

Any takers?


(1) Network Post: Thea Queen

I've always heard about pod people, I never thought I'd be one. Anyway, hello everyone. I'm Thea Queen and I'm going to be working in Medical doing administrative things. I hear my brother is around here somewhere?


Now that gathering has become mostly digging in the dirt and the snow, I gotta tell you I get real excited when I find something that's actually useful. Ginger root, today. That's worth a finger or two, probably, for a little zing to the evening's casserole.

But this flashpan joy - what it continually reminds me is that I spent a lot of time looking back where I was before. I spent a lot of time trying to negotiate a world that didn't want me in it instead of creating my own world around it.

I'm not going to say 'if I ever get back' or something like that. Because how foolish. But what I'm going to say is - time to pull up the big girl panties and look ahead, Rogue. Get your shit together and keep on trucking.

I'm good with numbers.

So I heard about movie night, but aside from that what do people do here to pass the time, when not working, eating, or sleeping?


Hermione, did you know we have kids in the future? Two of them! Two whole kids! They even have names and everything!

Because I could not stop for Death –
He kindly stopped for me –
The Carriage held but just Ourselves –
And Immortality.

We slowly drove – He knew no haste
And I had put away
My labor and my leisure too,
For His Civility –

We passed the School, where Children strove
At Recess – in the Ring –
We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain –
We passed the Setting Sun –

Or rather – He passed Us –
The Dews drew quivering and Chill –
For only Gossamer, my Gown –
My Tippet – only Tulle –

We paused before a House that seemed
A Swelling of the Ground –
The Roof was scarcely visible –
The Cornice – in the Ground –

Since then – 'tis Centuries – and yet
Feels shorter than the Day
I first surmised the Horses' Heads
Were toward Eternity –

Not quite the Eternity Emily or I had in mind.


My uncle is gone.

I know many of you know our story, so you would know his fate, as well as the fates of both myself and my brother. Grieve for his absence if you wish, as I will for the rest of my days, however many that may be, but do not feel sad for us. He is where he should be, and we will see him again one day.

Last week, when people received gifts from one of the pods, I found the runestone that Mother gave me.


I heard a rumor that the radiation here sometimes messes with people in a strange way. It causes magical abilities or maybe latent abilities to resurface? Is that confirmed?

We need to figure out this whole housing situation because I'm sorry, but last time I checked we were living together.


For those who knew her, Anne Blythe disappeared. We really need to find out where they I will miss her and her kindness greatly.

I wanted to take a moment to thank our wonderful medical staff. I know that I've said it before, but you don't get enough credit as far as I'm concerned. I thank you all for the care you have given me and my children. I suspect that we'll see you many times in the next few years.

That means there's a spare room in my housing unit.
How are you settling in?

I still can't believe we won the war against the Adversary, and that it was Gepetto all along. What in the world possessed him?


So when I said to myself, "Self, you need yourself a mental break", I didn't actually mean a full-on mental break. I was thinking more liiiiiike a weekend of shopping? Bad TV watching? Cheetos may have featured heavily in this picture. But no, I just had to go and lose my mind instead.

It was almost in the cards. The last thing I said back home? "Well, if I don't make it to the library tonight, it's not the end of the world."

BOOM. Here we are.

Hello, friendly hallucinations. My name's Veronica Mars.

Today is the day that the wonderful, amazing, awesome, fantastic Kate Bishop -- one of my best friends in the entire multiverse -- was born. So, I think you all owe it to her to say happy birthday. Or give her a high five. It's too bad the Pod God didn't take my wish for confetti-snow seriously. (But hey! It brought you a Jedi. So we're even, right?!?)

Kate, Teddy, Sam, & Cassie
We got a surprise for you!

Hello? I have been informed by the people who greeted me that I should introduce myself on this device. I am Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Knight though that won't mean much here? I am living in 505Y and that I will be working as a Teacher? Also there is supposedly people from my world here? I admit I'm not sure what I think of this situation though, I was undertaking a rather important task back home and I don't appreciate being kidnapped in this way though there is nothing to be done I gather?

This kind of thing would happen to me and I blame Tony Stark entirely. Stay calm, Pepper. Do not freak out. Everything will be okay. We can fix this.

Hi, I'm Pepper. Nice to meet everyone?


Hello everyone! I'm Phoebe Halliwell, newly arrived, and I was told this was the best way to introduce myself to everyone. I look forward to meeting you all. I just wish my si

So this is what the future looks like. Seems kind of...dismal. No offense.

Anyway, hi. I'm Georgina. Interesting set up.


Ha. You lot will like this. I got my remembrall in that pod that landed a few days ago. And it's gone missing. Already.

Also, I've made a new friend in the greenhouse. I've named it Trevor II. Be kind to him.

I had someone tell me the other day that I'm starting to look like a lumberjack. Thanks?

It's here!!!

From the pod! It's here!
