Is my protege ready for some training and practice? I found a really good clearing that we can use that's not too far from here, but it's not in Grounder territory or near a lot of scouts and lookouts.

You really didn't have to do that.

But thank you. I hope you didn't have to trade your soul to someone in the kitchens.

news report; 2 (May 5th)

[OOC: EVERYONE PRETEND THIS IS POSTED TOMORROW. I just am not sure when I'll be able to post it tomorrow so its going up now]

During the return from Polis, members of the Council came into contact with survivors of the Argo Station. This Station had once been the agriculture center of the Ark that the Skaikru are from. During evacuation last year they landed in Ice Nation territory and were not welcomed by those already occupying the area.

Families were reunited and then broken apart again as they struggled to survive the harsh winter and even harsher conditions levied against them. “Traps we set for animals were deliberately tampered with,” one survivor told me. “At other times our parties who went searching for food were slaughtered and left as warnings to not go any further into their land.” Starvation and the lack of habitable shelter led to many more deaths, but most talked of losing loved ones who stepped in to save children from the Ice Nation who continued to drive them further out of their territory.

Over the months their population has dwindled to one third of the size it used to be. Marcus Kane has allowed the surviving members of the Argo Station to join Mount Weather in hopes that their farming expertise can be utilized during these spring months.

Members of the Ice Nation were not available to give their own accounts of these various encounters.

For those of you who knew her, Jessica Jones has disappeared. No need to look for her; we were speaking when it happened.

news report; 1

On Monday, April 25, Emma Swan was charged with Negligent discharge of a weapon for her use of magic that caused over 100 citizens of Mount Weather to be sent elsewhere without their consent and have their memories and lives altered. The following day Ms. Swan pleaded guilty to the charges leaving the Council to deliberate on the evidence provided.

Witness statements were read/viewed as well as a book that documented the spell being cast and the lives of those who had been sent to the alternate version of Storybrooke. Ms. Swan’s guilty plea was accepted and her intentions were found to not be malicious in nature. It was also found that over the past few months Ms. Swan was being possessed by a Dark Entity but that she is no longer inhabited by such a force.

Ms. Swan will be released today, Thursday, April 28th, under the following conditions:
  • No magic to be used for the next two months. She will be wearing an anit-magic cuff that the wearer cannot removed.
  • Suspension from the military for two months.

Due to the concerns over magic and the use of it in and around Mount Weather, the Council has decided that a Magic Support and Resources group would be helpful to create a better understanding of the various types of magic that exists in this world. They also would like it to form a checks and balances system for those who use it. Ms. Swan must also attend this group’s meetings.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Council.

Hi, long time fan, but I won't gush. You probably get that enough here.

I wanted to discuss something with you. I know that you're a heavy hitting reporter, and I am... not. However, I've got the news here, and I was wondering if you'd like to take that over from me.

Apr. 23rd, 2016


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.

We're back, and with good news for once. Lexa called us to Polis to offer us a place as the 13th Clan in the Coalition, and she's given us a week to decide if we want to accept or not. The Command officials will be meeting for the next few days to discuss it, but even though we won't be having an official vote, your thoughts are still valuable. This is a big decision on our part, and it's worth publicly discussing so that your representatives can accurately argue for your perspective in the meetings.

Speaking of the Council, we're having a shift in personnel: Abby Griffin is stepping down as Chancellor to devote more of her time to Medical. This means we're down from 5 members of the Council to 4 for the time being, because Marcus Kane is stepping up as Interim Chancellor until an official election later this year. Kane served the Council on the Ark, and to be totally honest, he understands and negotiates more effectively with the Grounders than Chancellor Griffin ever did. This is a positive thing, and Chancellor Kane should be addressing everyone in his own words soon.

I'm not sure what the chance means for you, because I'm not sure if Mom has talked to you about it. She basically resigned in Polis instead of waiting to get back. Kane might be more proactive about announcing things himself or he may want to use you the way Abby did. I'm just not sure, and I wanted to give you the head's up.

Peeta Mellark, Mordin Solus, Sandry fa Torin, TJ Wagner, Evie Frye, Ravi Chakrabarti, Kallian Tabris, Baelfire* (*Basically, Podkru people established to be her Real Actual Friends in this post. I'm happy to add people if you drop me a note!):
I know Ieft almost as soon as everyone reappeared, so I'm sorry I didn't check in earlier, but: hi, I missed everyone who was gone and I'm happy for everyone who got somebody back.

How are you guys doing?

How are you doing? Are you even awake yet?

(ooc; i'm popping out for dinner, but i wanted to get this up so people could start talking about the 13th clan thing without having to wait for me. be back soon, xoxo.)

The weather is far more enjoyable than it was last month, and I'm feeling restless. After my shift with the children today, is anyone interested in a shooting contest?

I'm ... eh. Moderately good with a gun. I'd like to have a bit of fun with it, however. Also if anyone with one of those lovely "sniper rifles", as they're called, is willing to let me get my hands on one (unloaded is certainly fine with me), I'll treat it with all the respect it deserves.

So here's a public service announcement I never imagined I'd be making: I'm seriously not a terrible person, I promise. I'm a (reformed) liar, not a cheater (except maybe in cards on occasion). Please don't continue hating me from a distance. Or, in one particular case, from very close while I'm sleeping. (Attention: Malia) End PSA.

I wavered on whether or not I wanted to weigh in, or if I was even ready to do so, but I feel like I should as both a close friend of the person responsible and one of those affected by what she did.

cut, but not filtered )


Today's forecast:
Ripe for vengeance, Mount Weather will tip the scales of Spring and catapult directly into Summer. As there is not a dose of sympathy for miles, be prepared before you venture out of your rather well-appointed rooms and ensure that you do not anger the mob, desperate for someone's head.

Hells naw. It's still Cooking with Cisco, which is a lot like Cooking with Crisco, but really my stuff's way tastier. Now, granted, I haven't had a lot of time to prepare and I've been told Goblin is totally not a healthy food option - soooOooOOoo today is veggie enchiladas.

For those of you that immediately went eugh, veggies, I swear to you on everything I care about (a list that mostly contains electronics and tacos), you're going to love these. If you've never had a fresh corn tortilla and a spicy 'chilada gravy, you haven't lived. Or lived more than once. It's hard to count lives around here, amirite?

Come forth, learn from the master (then help feed the masses). Perhaps during the lesson, I will regale you with tales of my days as a Radio DJ in Sunny Weatherbrooke!

We're cool, right? Not weird. I won't make it weird. If you still want that X-Ambassadors concert, I've got MP3s. Not QUITE the same, but hey. Uh, that is, assuming you remember stuff. If you don't, PRETEND I WROTE NOTHING.

mount weather: kate marsh

Hello. I'm new, I suppose?

I'm Kate. I'm sorry -- is there something else I should say? I'm a little at a loss.

You've certainly done a nice job making this place look like somewhere people could live. I'm going to guess there's no way to go home, since that wasn't offered to me?

TRIGGER: suicide, abuse, torture in conversation with Max Caulfield.


mount weather: julie power

What the hell am I Hey! Okay, so. Hi. If we haven't met, I'm Julie, and I was named second in command of crafts after the most recent mass exodus. Who knew all that time repairing my siblings' costumes would come in handy! Good thing I'm speedy, too, because holy shit, we are down in numbers.

Which is what I wanted to talk to everyone about. We could really use help in all areas, honestly. We lost Thorin, which has really bummed me out on a personal level, and we lost most of our Podkru clothing makers, shoe makers and tool makers. I know what you're thinking. "But Julie, I don't know anything about making clothes or shoes?" Or "I barely know how to use tools in the first place!" But the thing about these skills is that you can learn them. We're not asking for perfection. Just someone who wants to help and wants to learn. So if anyone's willing to chip in some time to help, that'd be great. I know everyone here would appreciate it, and it's always good to have a variety of skills at your disposal. You never know when you'll need them.

... Also, does anyone know a lot about unstable molecules? I got a bunch of material made from it last month, and it'd be way more useful if we could make more of it. Or... something, I don't know:

Hey, I checked about your friend. There was no sign he left the base around the time he went missing. No one could find him on any cameras. If there was any foul play, law enforcement would know about it. Have you talked to them about this? It might just be that he disappeared like everyone else. I know you don't want to hear that, but without any evidence to help us out, we're kind of stuck.

mount weather

I have to say the welcome pamphlet is a nice touch. Even if its a bit daunting to see there's been enough time and people arriving to warrant one.

I've got some questions. I will always ha

  • I saw that there's Law Enforcement and Legal. Are the laws of this place posted anywhere?
  • What's the justice system like? Jury/judge? Panel? Vote? Etc?
  • Is news dispersed mainly through the tablets/radio?
  • I have a
  • What's the coffee supply like? Tea is nice and all but it doesn't even begin to compete with coffee. There's still coffee, right?
  • How many of the Podkru—I think I got that right—are there? Any idea how many universes we're from?
  • Who's in charge of the 5-6's for childcare? We're going to need to talk.
  • There's no detangler, is there?
  • I also heard there are people with varying abilities here. Does anyone help work with others who might have just discovered their powers?

And right. Lois Lane.
I wish this was the weirdest thing to have happened in my life.

This is so stupid. What am I even supposed to say? Should have given me a script, Bell

I'm supposed to be doing a test to see who can actually see this to check and see if the network is up and running. I guess if you can see this, reply back with your name and if you're having any kind of issues? I can pass them along to whoever.
