[Filtered to friends of Kallian and Alistair (feel free to assume)]

Alistair and I have some extremely surprising and extremely happy news. Ordinarily I'd want to tell everyone in person, but you know what a gossip mill this place is, and I don't want any of you finding out somewhere other than from us.

Alistair and I are going to have a baby. Late this summer, Christine thinks. As any of you who have any experience with Wardens know, the odds of this happening are very slim, so we're feeling like we just won a hundred sovereigns on a bluff.

And apparently drinking alcohol is not good for pregnant women, so I am now taking bids on my alcohol rations.

I think there's something going on with Grant and I didn't know who else to turn to or talk to. He's... well he's not himself and I'm worried about him. He said he's fine but I don't think he is.

[ooc note: Kara hesitated for a long time before including Betsy and Coulson in the filter on this entry.]


Anyone considered that some of the people on that database will horribly abuse the whole second chance thing. I mean, I get that it just means we'll watch them closer but all the same. Do they get subjected to more scrutiny  than those of us who might have been considered a potential risk before this database.

Not disputing its a good idea. Just, open to manipulation

Original Team Bus
Coulson, Simmons, Daisy


You need to put HYDRA in there I get it. But be thorough. All of us them. Whitehall, Von Strucker, List, John

If there's anyone here who doesn't know about me at this point they'll figure it out. Or someone will tell them. But you know the risk if any of the old guard come here, its not them directly but what they'll influence if they get the same second chance as the rest of us.


Tried to talk to the team about that database. About HYDRA. Ended up just telling Coulson.

How long does hell last?

Does anyone else miss home? I know...I should be lucky to be here, after everything that's happened in my life. I miss one of my best friends, but I'm glad I'm not alone here. I've been in a place where I've been completely alone before with no way out and I very nearly couldn't take it. I miss my boyfriend. Logic tells me that if there were some way to leave this place, someone would have found it by now with how many different people are here and how many different abilities each person has.

I know there are quite a few of you here and there's been talk about it before, but I'm curious. Forgive me if I'm repeating a question that's been asked before; I've not been here that long. Who among you all are magical beings of some kind? Witches or someone who can practice magic? I'm curious to know what sort of resources we have here and which type of enemies might be here who would try to hurt me or my friends.

You guys free this weekend?

Surveillance spotted three disturbances just outside our perimeter. To the north, our intel indicates the presence of four frost giants. East south east, roughly 100 robots. West, orcs.

We're taking volunteers from our military ranks to form three separate teams to handle this. These teams will investigate the disturbances, and defend our home. From what I've been told about what's out there, you should expect hostility. The remaining military will then be assigned to the second and third lines of defense, as well as guard posts, to ensure all of the civilians within our walls are safe. You'll provide back-up, if necessary. Listen to your commanders' orders.

It should go without saying, but until we tell you otherwise, this information is strictly classified. There is no need to incite panic among the rest of the population if we can take care of this at a distance, and I have faith that we can. If these threats make it past our front line, we'll handle it. For now, we're concentrating on making sure they don't get close enough to breach our walls in the first place.

[ooc: remember, only the volunteers designated on this post will be on the first teams out; everyone else will be assigned other jobs!]

I have news. One of the most-effective form of weapon enhancements in my home world is known as fire paper. When great friction is applied, this lightweight paper transforms to an extremely volatile, flammable substance that effectively coats ones preferred weapon in flames, adding additional damage and a measureless aspect of intimidation to one's fighting. Once the fire paper has exhausted its burning (usually after a minute or so at longest), the weapon is left free of any coating, as it has burned away in the process of immolation.

I should caution you that the high temperature of the flames act as a cauterizing agent in wounds: while you will undoubtedly cause people great pain (and, depending upon your skill, kill them), their deaths will be a result of your blows and not from bleeding out or infection. Some consequently see fire paper as a mercy in my world. As burns are among the most painful of wounds, I would not be so quick as to call it mercy. Additionally, weapons that have already been magically enhanced cannot use fire paper, so those of you who have enchanted weapons will have to go without.

I have been successful at recreating the formula from my home world, and have begun production of fire paper for our soldiers in the event of fighting. I would be remiss if I did not thank Dame Evie Frye, as she assisted me in testing early versions of the enhancement and aided me greatly when I nearly had my eyebrows singed off.

My next project will be to create bolt paper - same concept, only an electrical charge is added to a weapon rather than fire. If you have any questions, please let me know.

I don't know about you, but next week, I'm getting my dancing shoes on. Metaphorically. I don't have a pair of heels magically here, but I know how to shake it with some low shoes.

Anyone else interested, I'll be hosting a night at the Rose for anyone wanting to cut loose for a few hours. Head on over after the movie next Saturday night!

Anyone with digital music they'd like to hear, send it on over to me, and I'll get it on the list.

Damn it!

My ring's missing. I never take the damn thing off. So, if someone's somehow magically taken it off my finger. Then give it back. It isn't worth anything to you. The only one it is worth anything to, is me.

Filtered to Soldiers: Bravo Squad

And, until I get it back. I'm stuck inside during daylight hours. Unless someone wants a barbecue. And, if it's all the same to you. I'd rather not burn to death again. It gets old.

I would just like to take this opportunity to apologize to anyone I was short with over the last few days. I won't say I didn't mean the things I said because that would be a blatant lie in some cases but that doesn't mean I'm not going to say sorry. I'm just glad everyone appears to be back to their correct ages now.

OH come on!

Gambit shows up. Actual Gambit. Remy Le actual cajun god of hotness Beau

And he looks like Damon.

Life is cruel. I am defeated.

If the above makes no sense to you, just know that it is a BAD THING. And hug me.

[OOC - Basically if Lexi has talked to you more than once you're probably on here. Or if you think you're on here, you're on here. Cause Lexi.)

This is freakin stupid and everyone wants to know about us.

I'm bored. Any clubs around this place or is it all just boring soilder crap

Jan. 25th, 2016



I don't know this place. How did I get here, is this...

Who are you all? Who's that woman that was with me?


It's a test dumbass, this is a test

As far as other worlds or different universes go, gotta say that this one sucks a lot less than the last one I was in did. There aren't any evil serial killer witches around, are there? Kidding, kidding!

I'm Bonnie Bennett, newbie in town. I'll eventually be part of the Administrative Staff (Medical) around here. Sounds interesting. I was told there might be some friends of mine around? And for someones named Mercy and Raven, guess I'm your new roommate?

I give up on birthdays. I'm pretending they don't exist anymore.

Jan. 17th, 2016


I have two big announcements:

One: Teamwork, ingenuity, magic, and dedication to the pursuit of quality drunkenness has granted us a glorious gift: the queen of all liquors, the water of life...whiskey. With a little help from Messeres Nico Minoru and John Constantine and Serah Kili the smith, we've been able to age it in magical barrels and have produced something that is, I dare say, quite drinkable.

Two: I realized that a name for the tavern's actually been staring me in the face this whole time, and I just didn't see it. The place is henceforth to be called The Rose. Feel free to ask me for the story on why, unless you're the type who hates mushy stuff - if that's the case, you'll only be disappointed. Now, who's got some artistic talent and wants to make us a sign for the place?

I feel like death on a cracker. Or maybe just death. I don't know. This sucks.


It isn't until you're without something that you realize how much you relied upon it. I wonder how many of us never thought about how vital modern medicine was until we found ourselves here without some of the basics.

Pretending to be sick so we can stay in our room is wrong, isn't it?

I know the call has gone out, but if anyone of the very young or very old begin to experience flu-like systems, please visit us in medical so that we can keep an eye on you. To those of you who find yourself falling in between and experiencing symptoms, take these following recommendations seriously, because I am a doctor. So listen.

The flu is a virus and it generally can't be treated unless it's caught extremely early. Therefore, the management of symptoms is the main thing we need to be concerned with outside of full-blown prevention. While you're washing your hands frequently and staying out of public areas, here are a couple things to help you alleviate symptoms:
  • LIQUIDS. Your virus will thrive in dried out throats and nasal passages. Drink frequently - water, unsweetened juice or decaffeinated tea. If the gatherers or the kitchen can find any echinacea, this might be helpful to the cause.

  • NEUTROPHILS. These are white blood cells inhibited by soups such as vegetable or chicken noodle (any soup that raises the temperature in the throat, really).

  • ALLICIN. Garlic contains this pungent antimicrobial. If garlic is available, try to ingest a clove every 3-4 hours. Sorry vampires.

  • SWEAT. Spices like cinnamon, coriander and ginger are often thought to alleviate fever. If these spices are available, try 250 mL of hot water, mix 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) each of powdered coriander and cinnamon with 1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) of powdered ginger. Let it steep for 10 minutes, then drink.
