Well...this is strange. Not sure if I believe all of it or if this is just some...dream.

Or perhaps I wasn't fast enough...

I'm going to be gone for a little while. Spock said to prepare ourselves for a week but it could turn over into two. I figured I should inform you all before we head out.

Hey, what's going on? You've not said anything to me in days.

*You can go ahead and assume! If you are from OUAT, you're definitely part of it.


[Filtered to Once Upon a Time Fandom minus Baelfire]
I've been waiting to make any sort of announcement until after I spoke to Baelfire and to be honest I wasn't completely convinced this place was even real. It's been a week and I'm still here. I even started a job in Law Enforecment last week. I guess I'm going to be here a while.

You should all know (if you don't already) that I'm expecting. I'm about five weeks along right now. It came as a complete surprise, but I'm really happy about it. Especially being here where we are both safe

I disclosed this information during intake, but I'm about five weeks pregnant. Does the mountain have an OB/GYN I can start seeing? I want to make sure this goes as smoothly as it can while trapped inside a mountain. I also want to make sure that whoever has been delivering babies around here isn't headed off to one of the new settlements.

I am rather going to miss having Minerva here. I'd ask for volunteers to keep the Gryffindor and Slytherin rivalry going, but no one has the sense of humor that she has.

[Filter: Lily Luna]
Perhaps while we're working through the mandrake situation, we could go about finding some of the other ingredients we ought to be able to find here and that do not need to be magical.

[Filter:Lily Potter]
I don't exactly know how to ask this, but are we all right still? After the badly thought through marriage in a cursed dimension experience?

I'm told this isn't some strange dream, but I'm not quite sure if I believe it or not. The last thing I remember is pricking my finger to enact a sleeping curse so I could protect my. This isn't like the new dream version of Storybrooke or something? Don't answer that. I'm not sure who or what I believe right now.

My name's Belle. I'm trying to muddle my way through everything right now, get my bearings. I heard there was a library. Could someone point me in that direction?

Quite a set-up it sounds like you folks have got here. I'm guessing since I'm told it's inside a mountain, there isn't really much of a view to speak of, huh?

Name's Pam.

I've tried writing this a few different ways, and I discovered that the best way to do it is by being blunt:

I'm resigning as Councilor.

I'm grateful for the last year in this mountain. I'm grateful for the trust you've given me over the months and the privilege of leading you. However, for a number of personal reasons (most of which I've shared with people I'm close to, and am not ready to share with people I'm not), it's appropriate now for me to concede the position to Logan, before the discussions about the Grounder alliance begin.

I will still serve the people as Lieutenant General, but my political career is over, and I am content.


I still have a great deal of catching up to do, on history, on this place, the people, the.. communities that have grown and fostered and died since the world went arse up, but I refuse to let myself get lost in books before I make proper introductions. I'm Evy O'Connell, my husband introduced himself a few days ago but then it was simply "You can call me Rick and I probably won't shoot you".

I'm to be a Mapmaker, but I have to ask; is there still any love for Archaeology and history this far in the future? Survival comes first, obviously, but- Well, admittedly it's my great love and I don't think anything can truly tear me away from it, even here.

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.


I want to see my mom.

storybrooke: steve rogers (obviously before everyone is back)

I feel a hell of a lot more sane now than I have the last few days. Still feel like I'm stuck on a roller coaster.

Thanks for helping me, Henry.

See, I wasn't just drunk. Where are you?
Hey... wife? Are you okay? Where are you?


WHO: Henry Mills and Emma Swan
WHEN: today, right before the curse breaks
WHERE: around town and then the hospital
WHAT: True love’s kiss prevails

I really hope this works )




You're probably all freaking out right now. But word of warning.

Don't cross the town line. If you do you'll forget everything that you know. Like wiped clean, don't know who you are, no memories or anything kind of forget. And you can't get them back. They're just gone forever.



No, give it back. I want it back.

When you think of America what does it make you think of? Or what about super soldiers that have metal arms? Or kickass Russian assassins?

Do you ever wish you actually owned a shield? Like a round one. How do you feel about stars?

storybrooke: ben ayers

springtime is my favorite time of year. there is new life all around us, from the first bloom in a garden to the arrival of baby birds, rabbits and deer. amidst all of the pollution, mother nature finds a way to start anew: plants are green again, and after a rainfall, the earth smells fresh once more. i find it to be the most peaceful time of year. whenever i go outside, i find a new reminder of how closely tied our lives are to the nature around us, and how all life must learn how to coexist. these moments i remember, in the dark of winter, when it seems the snow will never end. life exists in cycles. winter to spring to summer to fall to winter again. birth to death. day to night. life begins again, even when all seems lost.

spring brings hope once more. it is a fresh start, for our gardens - whether we mean the garden in our backyard or the figurative garden of life. it may seem as though something is coming to an end, but life always begins again.

i think, now that the weather is warming up, i should hold more of my classes outside, near the water.


I've got the worst headache. One of those ones right behind your eyes that sort of flares up when you move your eyeballs. Congratulations, Spring. You've officially arrived. I'm going to go faceplant into my bed in about 30 minutes.

How's the book?
