[Friends] Please, assume!
Most of us come from tumultuous worlds, so I doubt the current rhetoric is wholly unfamiliar. It's reminiscent of home before Clarke declared martial law. Easing tensions by spreading out from the mountain seems like a wise idea seen in that light.


Today the Council was called into session to discuss establishing settlements in four of our most trafficked areas on Skaikru land. Not only trafficked the most by us but by the Grounders in nearby areas. Mount Weather, or The Mountain, as they call it has been host to horrors for their people and they are, understandably, superstitious about it. If we're to begin trading with them, we should bring ourselves closer to them.

And let's face it, being packed in here like sardines isn't doing anything to alleviate tensions.

Effective immediately, we're starting with the two most important points along our borders that we'll need: the river and the North pass. The North pass will need more military hands, due to the increasing threat from Azgeda, the Ice Nation. The river community will have to contend with sand and sinking which will pose its own challenges.

Each settlement will have at least the following:
  • a military stronghold of some sort. These will likely not be massive buildings such a large fort, but will have those higher points for look-outs, weapons caches, and a small barracks for round the clock military accessibility. We had facilities at home called Fire Departments that ran in a similar way, only they were devoted to putting out fires in their particular area.
  • A medical facility. This will not be a medical war the way Mount Weather has, and getting the equipment that we have in medical will prove difficult, but we want at least one doctor at each settlement and a clinic of sorts.
  • A trading post. A building in which Grounders and Skaikru alike can trade between settlements for the things they need.
  • A small law enforcement area including two cells in case they're needed.
Two committees for the sites are being formed as we speak, and any and all input into those sites will be carefully discussed to make sure that we have all the planning created before we begin heading out.

Adaar, it's the obvious choice to offer you the lead on the military establishment to the north. It is rougher area than the other sites, and there are many potential pitfalls with Azgeda around. I know that you've recently stepped down as chancellor, so when your name was tossed around, I wasn't sure if you'd be interested.

Rogue, you're a natural leader among your people, and with the abilities at your disposal, I believe that you could form a team that would be up for the challenges that riverside might bring about. Is that something you'd be up for?

Today is Pixie's birthday. She is 16 now, which is almost a real grown up person.

I found some berries for you.

Is anyone else really, really confused by the suddenly vocal wave of antipathy for the Grounders? Did I miss a memo? Did someone draw penises on Councilor Wolverine's face while he was sleeping? Did one of them bring a bag of salad to a Superbowl party? Not to mention that "the Grounders" is a really broad term for numerous and diverse tribes with their own sets of rules, alliances, and cultures.

I'm good with hating people - it's my fav! - but generally I like to be in the know on the why.

Also, to continue the tone of this combative entry, The Princess Bride is mediocre at best and you guys can come at me.

[...] Anyone with magic wanna help a guy with zombie issues out for his birthday? And no, I don't mean brains. I need my hair. It's white, and it's... not a good look on me.

You people have no idea what they're getting us into. I didn't vote to become part of their dirty coalition. Fucking Grounder Pounders making decisions for us however they see fit. Why the hell would we ever want to let that bitch tell us what to do when she left half our people to die here? I am so fucking done while this just keeps happening. First they give over one of our kids because he had the balls to actually kill the savages. Then they form this bullshit alliance with them. Then they break it just like that. You mark my words, this isn't going to end well for us. The Grounders will piss on our skulls when they're done.

A lot of the Grounders are either traveling more often or relocating out there. I've been hunting outside our borders for a while now without running into anyone, but they're moving around so much that I practically tripped on a scouting party I didn't expect to find.

On a related note, spears hurt.

Oh! So that is why humans have such long limbs.

Temeraire, have you seen these images? They are very educational, although I am not sure how some of these positions are possible. I have tried to replicate them but perhaps they require two humans to achieve.

Damn. It's been a long time since I've seen anything like that and I still don't believe some of those positions are physically possible.

Anyone here do something back home like life planning? I'd need you to have a real thick skin and a pretty sensitive bullshit detector.

Hey, people who got back from... wherever. I'm David.

I'm using Howlett now.

If we agreed could we go to their villages sometimes?

I can't claim to know Peter half as well as his close friends but I did like his music and he made rather idiotic choices with women but at least he was aware of being an idiot, which often goes a long way because most people just stay idiots until they die.

Does anyone else not miss Storybrooke but maybe the idea of having ... normality? WHatever that is. But living a life. Being married. Having kids. Jobs. Not worrying about death and darkspawn and maker knows what else because you're set on a path where you can never be content with anything and you're destined for more. I'm not supposed to be the destined one. Garrett is. He's a good brother, you know, even if it's easy to get overshadowd by him but that isn't his fault, hes just larger than life and doesn't realize it sometimes. being a warden helped me step out of that shadow, but it always feels like there's some other shadow. the darkspawn. the calling.

maybe I'm not meant to be content unless it's done by magical spell and stripping me of all else i know

drinking alone was probably a mistake.

Many of you were wondering about the activity reported in and around the mountain last night, and after a debriefing, it was revealed that the entity known as Lucifer who had been possessing Castiel, one of our Podkru, was actively plotting to take lives. Several of our citizens engaged in a fight to remove Lucifer from possessing Castiel and locked him away permanently in what is known as The Fade. The Earthquakes and flickering lights were due to this fight between angels.

Castiel and our other citizens are recovering from the ordeal, should you want to wish them well.

I remember the tea party I had for my seventh birthday but not what date it was.

It wasn't even real anyway. I was getting radiated then.

My hands were so much lighter without all the metal in them.

Can I use your name? Instead of Kinney?

Hey hey, now that I'm a criminal and we've got the spring fling dance coming up, who wants to be my date?

Goes well with the eye patch, gotta keep up my string of being the bad boy, yeah? Yeah. I've got it on good authority that I'm a damn good date, and you get to ride on my pride and joy. You know you wanna.

Pretty damn sure it doesn't need to be said cause it's me, but I'm not gonna sit here and list my preferences. I like all people (except judgemental assholes) and I'm pansexual. You got a problem with that, and you can go elsewhere.
