Thanks to everyone who came out to cards night today. It's always great to have folks teaching games from their own worlds.

[Aramis & Porthos]
You two up for drinks or swordfighting lessons or something after cards tonight?

Network Post: Illyana Rasputina

I am Illyana Nikolievna Rasputina, or Magik. I understand that "I" was here before. I'm not that girl any more, and don't remember this part of that life.

I also understand that the people I know aren't necessarily from the same point of linear time. That isn't a new difficulty for me. Since sharing our details probably won't break the timelines more than simply being here, let's place each other in time. I'm not one of Sam's team any more. I'm no longer a prisoner in Utopia. I'm also no longer one of the Five. I'm currently affiliated with the New Charles Xavier School for Mutants.

Apparently I know just enough about farming to become a farmer here. Is there even any equipment to use besides hand tools?


Hey, everyone! I just got word that a pod drop was located, and that we've got a group headed out to pick it up. Anyone freed up to go take a look?

So hey everybody. I messed up. I mean, sure, there's a lot of distractions going on (Really, not everyone can say that wars and alternative lives get in the way of their plans. Okay, unless they're from comic books. Mad love for you guys!). But I let something get behind and just totes didn't stay on top of it.

Which, considering what it is, that's disappointing to me. Top Priority, Cisco! Thanks for the reminder, Tali! I think this will work AMAZING with your idea for comm relays and towers. Can't believe I didn't think of that. Also sorry to the tech team for horribly failing at sharing info on this. I will suck less going forward.

I have sketched out some ideas for bringing two things back online here in Futureworld - Internet and GPS. It looks like we got the go ahead for the next phase of Cisco's Master Plan (with Help From Peter Parker and Friends (CMPHFPPF for short)).

Resources have been stockpiled, I know what I need. But you're wondering "WHERE DO I COME IN?"

Well, dear reader. If you can fly into space, I need your help. I need SPACE DEBRIS. Specifically satellites that we can refurbish. If anyone has like super metal detecting skills, there may be some that've crashed after a decayed orbit. Otherwise, I'll defer ground-based materials to the comm tower idea. Most of what I need has to be rated for space, etc.

I know there's a lot going on right now, but today is officially the day that everyone can tell Cisco Ramon that he's getting old. If anyone needs the distraction, feel free to track him down and let him know it.

Happy birthday, Cisco!

Hells naw. It's still Cooking with Cisco, which is a lot like Cooking with Crisco, but really my stuff's way tastier. Now, granted, I haven't had a lot of time to prepare and I've been told Goblin is totally not a healthy food option - soooOooOOoo today is veggie enchiladas.

For those of you that immediately went eugh, veggies, I swear to you on everything I care about (a list that mostly contains electronics and tacos), you're going to love these. If you've never had a fresh corn tortilla and a spicy 'chilada gravy, you haven't lived. Or lived more than once. It's hard to count lives around here, amirite?

Come forth, learn from the master (then help feed the masses). Perhaps during the lesson, I will regale you with tales of my days as a Radio DJ in Sunny Weatherbrooke!

[Veronica Mars]
We're cool, right? Not weird. I won't make it weird. If you still want that X-Ambassadors concert, I've got MP3s. Not QUITE the same, but hey. Uh, that is, assuming you remember stuff. If you don't, PRETEND I WROTE NOTHING.

Gooooooooooooood Morning, Weatherbrooke!

Traffic? Hah! Weather? Great! That's your morning report. Now, we're having a contest here at 99.7 KTKZ and you're all invited. Because we care, amigos y amigas. You may have heard that there's an X Ambassadors concert on May 10th over in Portland. It just so happens that we have front row tickets and backstage passes available.

Now, we're not going to do the regular 10th caller thing, oh no. Since their number 1 song is Renegades, which we'll play at the top of each hour today, we want you to submit stories of the most REBEL, RENEGAGE, PRANKTASTIC thing you've ever done. We'll select the winner tomorrow morning and feature it out on our website and our Facebook page!

Ready? Go!

I think you already know I get my own pair of tickets and I've already got a +1 in mind. You down?

Hey so, let's say you've been dating this guy for a few years. And it was great at first! The guy shared a lot of your ideals for activism and how you can get involved in your local community and grow organic. It was great! He was great! You were great together!

But over the years... you grew up.

And he... moved into a tree.

Like, okay, so it started off great. The tree was endangered, no one wanted to cut down a hundreds year-old tree. And it worked! The tree was saved!

But... the guy still lives in the tree and refuses to come down. Ever.

How long do you wait before you realize that he loves that tree more than he loves you? I know, I know! It's not about that, and I shouldn't be so selfish, but it's a damn tree. And I can't keep getting splinters just because I want to visit my boyfriend.

STORYBROOKE; Veronica Marlowe + Carlos Ramirez

» My Dads and I are proud to present to you 1 (ONE) lunch invitation for sometime today.
» Burgers, fries, and intimidation.
» There may be weapons; there will absolutely be some hearty side-eye in your direction.
» Feeling brave, compadre?

Kriff, someone tell me I at least did some damage to the guy who did this to me.

Also, a bit thank you to whoever got me out of the battle when I went down. You smelled good. And were pretty.

Roomies, you have your boys club for the moment. Should be back by tomorrow they say.

Chatty to Cisco Ramon

Hey. I was wondering if you could help me with something? I got one of my cameras in the Pod Drop complete with film. I don't have anyway of developing it though. Would you know anything about setting up a darkroom? Or maybe even converting my camera to digital? I don't know if that's something that can even be done but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Mar. 24th, 2016


As much as I love sabacc, I'm equally intrigued by all the other card games people know here. Hence, I'm thinking of broadening sabacc club to a general card games night. Bring your favorite card game and we'll have time to learn knew games and folks to break up into small groups to play a few different things at once. I know there was talk of poker, 500, and a few other games as well.

(Also, I now have a mini sabacc table, so if we can convert the power source, you can see the changing values in action versus freezing their value etc.)

Mar. 23rd, 2016


Alright, all of the cool kids are probably still playing cards, but I have to stay off my foot another couple days and I'm already going stir-crazy. Got my entire collection of holovids from home in the Pod giving thing a few days ago, I tinkered with BB-8 a little and improved his holoprojector, I'm turning this room into a theatre. Who wants to watch Captain Rygaen's Ploy? Or... hm, let's see. Sacrifice at Endo- No that's Scrivner's Revenge, one of my favorites. I've got Kallea's Hope's to go with it, too.

I have Han Solo and the Pirates of Kessel, too. OH and Luke Skywalker and the Dragons of Tatooine. Classic.

Who's in?

Mar. 22nd, 2016


So, I should probably mention that that big treadmill that was moved into the gym the other day? Yeah, I wouldn't suggest getting on it and cranking it up to full speed. Cisco can get a security lock on that so no one gets thrown against the wall at mach 2 by accident, but I wanted to PSA that.

But, seriously, to whatever inter-dimensional gift-giver is out there... thanks. I wasn't counting on a birthday present, but I sure am grateful for that particular one.

[Filtered to Ravi Chakrabarti and Cisco Ramon]
Just how familiar are the two of you with the Intersect?

Mar. 19th, 2016


Ooookay, that wasn't creepy at all. Megalomaniac was left out of the description.

And how did she get on the intercom?

Mar. 15th, 2016


All right, you primitive screwheads, listen up!

You're not actually primitive screwheads and I think you're all great, I just REALLY REALLY wanted to use that quote for an announcement and it was a perfect opportunity.

So! I took over the cooking lessons (to add some Latin flair!) when Mr. Bradshaw left. For those of you who've still been coming to the lessons while I kind find my groove in the job, I appreciate it, and I hope you've enjoyed some of the stuff my abuelita taught me.

I wanted to let you all know that there's another change! Instead of "every other Monday and Wednesday," I'm just moving it to every Monday. Same timeslot! It's just easier on my schedule to have something regular and locked down. I'm sure it's the same for a lot of you.

NOW for the REAL announcement. I've been working with our agriculture group (Peace, Mr. Kent, I'll miss you) to get a steady (as steady as plant growth is) flow of fresh ingredients, especially since everything I teach becomes dinner for everyone! Sweet deal, I know. So here's the plan. I'd like everyone to save up some dairy rations to help me with this, because I've got everything I need to make PIZZA. (Thanks, Pixie, for helping collect some plants, too!)

PS, Tony Friggin STARK and I are growing coffee beans in a localized greenhouse, you're welcome.

It'll be a bit different that you're used to, though. Grain is still hard to come by, so I'll be using cauliflower for the bread. BEFORE YOU FLINCH, let me say you won't even be able to tell the difference when I'm done. You'll love it, trust me. And be ready to get your grub on this Monday. And maybe this'll drum up some more people taking my class!

Dear Bossman, permission to requisition some lumber, some rope, and a really heavy rock?

I am sore in places I didn't even remember I had but that was the most fun I've had in a while. I have no idea why I never signed up for Capture The Flag before.

Mar. 8th, 2016


It's March 8th, which means today is the birthday of the kindest, smartest, bravest, and most gorgeous woman I know.

Happy birthday, MJ!

All the best and all the love to you, Red.

ok i get it. you're all heroical do-gooders running on caffeine that never did a wrong thing a day in your life. i get that coffee is prized above all else. because hey. otherwise we're subsisting on blue stuff and veronica's witty banter.

... didn't you ever grow pot in a window unit when you were in college? no. just me. okay. i'm pretty sure i can engineer you a tiny adorable greenhouse. if that's a Thing and You Want It. (never say tony stark's handsome mug doesn't class a place up immediately.)

so here's what i need:
  • space (i'm thinking a sturdy table, some of your adorable midcentury aesthetic lighting and tubing)
  • set me up near a water source
  • reflective material
  • some fancy do-gooder that makes things grow faster

  • and we're done
