I did not thank you properly for training Crinitus. He is very good at sitting on command now, and he has taken to sleeping on top of Warner's head. I think he has come to enjoy the company of other animals.

[Filter to Dean Winchester]
You seem to know much of music like that of Storybrooke. I find that my enjoyment of it lingers despite how the memories have faded. The only musicians whose names I recall are Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, and Johnny Cash, but I remember many more tunes. Could you help me find more?

[Filtered to Kate]
Pain is how you get stronger. Eventually it will be gone. Hawke says ice will help in the meantime.

You did well today.

I adore you.

Also, I'll be home late tonight.

May. 5th, 2016


I liked the message that was on the radios earlier, but all of this tension makes me anxious. I suppose peace is never really that easy, though.

[ fenris ]
Excuse me, I hate to bother you. We spoke recently at the tavern -- my name is Kate.

If it isn't too much trouble, and if you have any interest, I'd very much like to learn some of your skills with weapons. I have spent a lot of time recently feeling very vulnerable and [...] well, as though my actions are not my own to control. I'm tired of feeling that way, and I'm trying to learn defensive skills from anyone I can.

I understand if you'd rather not, however! You won't hurt my feelings.

Thank you either way.

[ trigger: drugging, kidnapping, etc. -- kate talks about her experiences. also spoilers for Life is Strange! ]

I require assistance on the matter of a tune.

I found myself singing it thinking of it this morning, but I do not think I actually know it, because though I know every word, there are pieces I do not at all understand.

What is a Long Black Train?

The next time one of you wants to use big magic or a big powerful ability and you're not sure exactly what it will do, don't. There will be consequences for this flagrant misuse of magic, regardless of intent, and you can assume for the immediate future that I am not the authority figure to come to with your sad little feelings about how intent somehow negates consequences just because one of you could be the next ones to fuck it up.

This isn't prejudice. This isn't someone who's anti-magic cracking down on anyone. This is a powerful mage reminding you all that magic has its price, that anybody using magic or powers has a responsibility to use them in a way that does the least amount of harm to innocent people. We were given gifts, whether through accidents of birth or circumstance or through our own desires, and those gifts come with a significant burden. There are people here who could lobotomize the population, who could crush the mountain in a bad temper, or who could tear this place apart in a moment of unbridled power. It's our responsibility to make sure that those things don't happen, either intentionally or by accident, and it is our fault when mistakes happen.

As a Council member, I can promise you that charges will be pressed and that every police report filed about this incident will be taken into account. If you've suffered any kind of physical or psychological trauma as a result of the last three weeks, set up a time with anyone working in Law Enforcement who was not also a victim of this magic; it will take some time to get all of them squared away with the reparation efforts going on from the goblin attack that we missed, but you will be listened to and justice will be served, I swear it.

As a person who has had her mind and her life thoroughly fucked with recently, if you can't find me for whatever reason in the immediate future, you can assume I'm elbow-deep in none-of-your-business and not interested in receiving any visitors.

ETA: Because people keep asking this as if I'm calling for blood: yes, of course intent will matter when charges are eventually leveled. I'm saying that damage was done regardless of whether or not it was intended to. The idea that actions have consequences should not be nearly as surprising as it appears to be.

And no, of course nobody is in any danger here. We do not physically punish or kill the guilty in this community, as per the legal system we were asked to create. I'm promising justice and an application of the court system we've created, not a goddamn witch hunt, and if you read "witch hunt" from "charges will be pressed", then that's a personal perception you need to work on, because that is not what I said. Not even a little.

I find it very distressing how much focus is going into making excuses for someone who cast awful magic and hurt others than is going into having some compassion for the people she hurt, especially when she's admitted that she did cause harm. Respect her honesty enough to take the damage seriously instead of trying to act as if it's less severe just because she feels bad about it.


Hiiii. I'm Judy Hopps. Officer Judy Hopps. I wasn't really expecting to wake up — here. I thooooought maybe I stepped on the wrong train and got off in Rainforest District, but this doesn't look like a rainforest at all. Lots of green, kind of wet, but not a rainforest.

Then they tell me I'm on Earth, but no one here looks like any animal I know at all. Never seen anyone like — what are you called? Forgive me if that sounds rude or unthinking, I've just never seen anything like you.

I'm an officer in law enforcement, so hello! I'm your new coworker. I REALLY hope I don't have to start all over with the token bunny stuff again

[...] There's no parking meters here, right?


I understand the mage responsible for the latest disaster is in custody. When will charges be brought, and who will sit in judgment of her wrongs?


Log: Fenris and Hawke

WHO: Fenris and Hawke
WHEN: Immediately upon return from Storybrooke
WHERE: Medical
WHAT: Fenris goes looking for Hawke, Hawke goes looking for Fenris, and they find each other.
WARNINGS: Discussion of possible future murder

Maker, you have got to stop disappearing on me. )

Storybrooke: 1 hour panic time

Has anyone seen Hawke?

Apr. 5th, 2016


!storybrooke; ben "the bull" irons

So who wants to RIDE THE BULL?

Cause I rented this bad boy through the weekend.

Sam, you think we can set this fucker up in the back of the Rabbit Hole? Cause I'm gonna stick it in the park otherwise but nothin better than bull riding except bull riding and beer.


STORYBROOKE; sarah bennett.

My life is literally consumed by house-painting. Who knew such a small place could require so much effort.

Is there anyone who happens to have an extra bed? Or maybe the urge to build one? I can pay.

[ family ]
I finally got the date for my in-home interview for the adoption. Tell me not to freak out. There's still so much left to do

storybrooke: steve shields

My fifth graders got me with silly string today when I wasn't paying attention, and the third graders tried to get out of school by pretending like they all had lice (they don't; they backed out real quick when I told them we'd have to shave all their heads). Happy April Fool's.

Want to invite some folks over this weekend or next? I can fire up the grill now that it's nice out again.


Storybrooke: The Faculty Meeting

[Filter to Moira, Dorian, and Catherine]
Faculty meeting, 4:30, The Rabbit Hole.

First class of the day, student tries to bullshit like he read Simulacra and Simulation. Spoiler alert: He did not. Baudrillard is half bullshit already, it isn't even hard to fake like you have any idea what the fuck is going on. Just fucking skim it! I've never been so disappointed with attempted bullshit in all my life.

I miss Spring Break.

[Filter to Veronica]
Hey sugar - are you bringing the boy with you for Sunday dinner? I'm asking so I can do the shopping, not so I can conveniently be cleaning my guns when you get there.

[Filter to Stacker]
Hey baby - I'm calling a faculty meeting this afternoon. Come on by the Rabbit Hole if you got time.

Has anyone else who kept one of the little long-nosed mice been able to train them to do anything? I am trying to determine if Crinitus is stupid or merely indolent.

Mar. 15th, 2016


Thank you to everyone who's been helping with the White Witch problem. I'm grateful, and I'm sure we're all grateful; it's just frightening and strange to think of magic like that being real. Traveling between universes I was willing to accept, but turning a carbon-based life form into stone?

It's a lot to process. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen her myself. I know magic's perfectly logical in other worlds, but... not where I'm from.

Mar. 9th, 2016


Conversations about Bull's manhood and his asshole. Must be Wednesday.

Also, there's something weird about a shop where they're all smiling and know your name, no matter what they're serving. I think I'll take a pass, and look, you know if I'm not interested, it should say something.

[Thedas Minus Cullen]
So for anyone who was still on the fence about whether Cullen was or Cullen wasn't tickling that Mars girl's belly from the inside.... guess who just asked me to clear out of the rooms tonight?

Look at me, a regular gossip. I'm proud of Curly.

Mar. 1st, 2016


Soooo I guess I get to officially get my ass out of Medical today? Awesome.

Anyway, I'm Mike. Sorry. About all that. We kinda had a bad night and I'm still not completely convinced that this place isn't Soylent Green, but thanks for the patching up, docs. Sewing up. I appreciate it, even if I know I was kind of a dick that night.

No shooting, promise. I mean, from me. I'm not making any promises for Emily. Y'all should still be scared of her.

Feb. 29th, 2016


[Filtered to Guard + Adaar, Rogers, & Griffin]
We need to start posting someone in Medical, all hours of the day and night, and insisting that they accompany the healers to see anyone who is newly arrived and not yet proven to be awake and calm. I grow weary of my fiance and his friends being attacked, particularly as not all of them are as well-equipped to defend themselves as Hawke is.

[Filtered to Hawke]
I would like to set a date for our marriage. And to decide how we want to do it.

Feb. 17th, 2016


These animals people are finding. Are they something we can eat?


log: erik+fenris

WHAT: Fenris has commissioned a wedding ring for Hawke, and he has one last request in order to make it perfect.

You want me to -take- some of this. )
