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.

So, last month, we talked about a weapons club and I'm happy to say we are getting it up and running. With the play and fight club, we were short on weekends this month, so April's fight club will be on Wed Apr 27 (info and signups here). In May we should be able to get it on a weekend that doesn't conflict with fight club or capture the flag. Can't wait to see a lot of you there.

[Military Sergeants]
It looks like I'm joining your ranks as the new sergeant of Charlie squad. I think I know most of you at least a bit since I've been here for awhile now, but I'm looking forward to working with you. I know previously we had some friendly competitions and such going between the squads and I'd love to get that back up and running.

Looking forward to working with all of you.

[Soldiers: Charlie Squad - Mikasa, Obi-Wan, Jenny, Stacker, Edmund]
With Sgt. Pentaghast's departure, command saw fit to put me in charge. It's an honor. I've fought with many of you in the past few battles, and personnaly, I think we're an awesome squad. Some of you might thing I'm too young for the job, but at home I was praetor, in charge of leading and training over 200 troops of Roman demi-gods and legacies. I think you know that I'm tough but fair.

Some of you have probably noticed that Edmund and I are in a relationship. I do not intend to treat him any differently than the rest of you, but I realize some of you may have a problem with this. If you do, please let me know and we'll work out a solution. Edmund and I both believe the squad comes first and he's volunteered to transfer if people think that would be best. For those that have been here awhile, this isn't the first time something like this has happened here, and people were able to separate things out.

My door's always open if any of you want to chat or have any suggestions. You know your strengths and weakness better than others.

So things got sorted with Edmund. And I'm now a sergeant. Not quite praetor, but still. Hopefully I don't mess this up.

I told Edmund what happened with my dad.

Why do I the urge to cook a big multi-course Italian-PuertoRican meal for our friends/family?

All of you present and accounted for? Please tell me you are.

You have no idea how much I've missed you.



No, give it back. I want it back.

I've decided that any time someone says "guess what" to me, this is what I'm responding with!

[Friends except Neal*]
Hey so I have news.

I think I'm going to finally risk taking the car for a spin tonight. You in? I'm not going until late.

Dear Mr. Pirate Ship Owner/Captain,

I see you there, trying to make us other fine, upstanding boat Captains feel inferior to your large ship, but it won't work. You know why it won't work?

Because it's not the size of the boat that matters, it's the motion of the ocean. And my wife will tell you that my motion in the ocean? Above reproach.

I like big boats and I cannot lie... )

I'm taking bets tonight on whether or not we will manage to make it through a weeks worth of lessons on acids without any burns, explosions, or other incidents that require the leaving of the chemistry classroom for any period of time.

Are you in?

I swear I did not mean to be late.


storybrooke: neal gold, april 4th, 12:15 am

Want to see something cool?


storybrooke: neal gold, april 3rd, 11 AM

Hey, Dad's being a complete dick. Car's out. You still want to go? We can walk.

We're walking to Any Given Sundae, pal.

Dad is an absolute ass.


storybrooke: neal gold, april 2nd

Look who is road legal now, guys!


Big thanks to Katrina for taking me to the DMV today.

Overheard in my shop today:

- 'I want to buy Lord of the Rings.'
- 'You idiot, then why are we here? They don't sell movies. Let's go.'

That really how it is with today's youth? I say youth. Could've been a well sheltered adult. Bit concerned all the same. Did appreciate the first person's dramatic sigh that ensued. Bit worried about where that friendship stands.

Bit of a buzzkill that witch, isn't she? Fascinating though! Don't often see a promise of going home wrapped in a promise of destruction, dodgy practice, that! Suppose, if wanted, I could throw my hat into the ring of finding her. Did get a brand new toy and all, might help. Might not. Who knows? Won't be sitting around twiddling my thumbs while someone wants to hurt the lot of you, least of all when I've got my coat back.

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?

[ Filtered to Military Squad Charlie: Reyna Ramírez-Arellano, Mikasa Ackerman, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jenny, Stacker Pentecost, Edmund Pevensie ]

Greetings. As there has been some rearrangement of military personnel, I will now be your sergeant and leader of this squad. My name is Cassandra Pentaghast, and I am from-- well, you it is not so well-known in this world, but I am from Nevarra. My experience in fighting is extensive, and mostly irrelevant to this conversation as I do not hold much reliability with words and every reliability with action and attitude. I am looking forward to seeing what you are all capable of, and would appreciate a brief sentence or two about your fighting style and preferred method of combat. I generally fight on the offensive with sword and shield. I am also capable of dispelling magic.

I regret that this entry will be less about getting to know one another and more straight to business. We have reason to be concerned about the disappearance of one of our own, and upon the go-ahead will be investigating the affected area. A particular object was found outside of our compound. It might be a coincidence, of course, and I urge your discretion in this matter, but we must be thorough.

Mr. Pevensie, I understand that the stone butterfly that was found earlier this morning is representative of someone very specific with which you are familiar?

Do any of you know chess? I'm going to learn tomorrow. Some of you should come, too.


Network Post: Minerva McGonagall

Due to the departure of the Chess Club's founders, Obi-Wan and I have decided we will host the club ourselves so that it may continue.

We do, however, hope to bring a different energy to the club under our direction. Neither of us plays professionally or competitively; we are enthusiastic amateurs who enjoy chess matches as a pastime. We do not have a dogmatic view of what is or is not "real chess". We welcome your adaptations, multitasking, and more. Play it however you bloody want. If you would like to introduce the club to a variant of chess that you know and love, we'd be happy to assist you in sharing that.

Thank you again to everyone who participated in the wizard's chess set trials. I believe we have now perfected them, and they will continue to be available at the Chess Club to those who wish to play it.

As this all comes suddenly before the last meeting of the month, this month's Chess Tournament will be cancelled. We will still meet tomorrow night to play. We hope to see you there.

What's the next holiday coming up?

I just realized I've been here a week. It goes by quickly.

Arguing with the devil. I'm pretty sure that's the definition of stupi futility.
