I want to be sure I'm going to wake up and find out this is all a dream, but I have a feeling that isn't going to happen.

Hello, everyone. My name is Snow White. You can also call me Mary Margaret if you wish. I was told there are likely people I know here.

September already? I My son's birthday was three weeks ago. Slipped my mind when I got here. Usually Max would h He would have been twenty two.

Things like that, birthdays and anniversaries, holidays, those feel different here. If you're the only one who remembers what it means, if you're the only one who knows, there's not much to do about it, and everyone here keeps busy enough. I think that's a blessing, in a way. No remembrance ceremonies to attend. No big speeches to write. I could do with less of those. I never did like the spotlight, and I've seen enough to last a lifetime. There are things I'd rather not remember.

How's Neal been doing since the weekend?

As far as kidnappings go, I'm really impressed how this was done. I mean in the middle of a crowded diner, that takes a lot of skill to get past all my friends.

Which I'm told a few of my friends were here? I really hope that's true because it just isn't a new world hop without friends, am I right?


Well this is one way to get out of a Chemistry final. Never mind the fact that I've spent an entire week going over notes. We're talking long nights, barely eating, singing The Elements Song enough to drive my parents crazy.

It says I'm going to be working as a Scout, hello! But I'm wondering about school? I haven't heard anything about signing up for classes. Technically it's the end of the my junior year, but I'm not entirely sure how things work now with the changed timeline. I'm fine with repeating a year, it might be better that way as I'm sure information has changed a lot over the years.

Oh! Sorry, I'm Violet by the way!

Tomorrow, we head into the fray. What do you say we get together tonight, play some cards and drink a little (but not to much that we're impared for tomorrow).
Keep Bae safe for me. Don't let anything happen to him.
Hey kiddo. By now you've probably seen that I'm going to help them out tomorrow. Can you do something for me?

Aug. 26th, 2015


Hey folks, so there's some stuff going down. What I need is this:

If you are not fighting or assisting in medical, you need to tell me right here and now. This includes children. If you are not fighting, and you are not helping in medical, then you are down in the prison with the rest of us. When we're not helping the other get ready, we are gathering blankets, medical supplies, food stores, to bring with us.

network post: ned

Do you ever have one of those dreams where you feel like you're awake, but nothing makes sense, and then later you feel like you're falling and you jerk awake and you're in your bed and everything's fine, and that cupcake wasn't really eating you from the feet up? This is that. This place is that cupcake.

And we're introducing ourselves on the computer, great. I'm Ned. There is nothing interesting about me.

Thank the Maker for this, I was supposed to leave for some Orlesian to-do right as I was snatched out of reality. Someone took pity on me.

Hello! I'm Alistair.

MEDICAL (+Kallian):
We are so, so sorry.

Neal's down to one nap a day, and his separation anxiety has reached an all-time high. Being a single parent is fun.

How long does this last? The separation anxiety, I mean. Although if you somehow know when he's going to get to see his father again -- I'd love to hear that, too.

So, arriving in the middle of a bloody epidemic was clearly a bad move on my part.

Anyway, now people aren't bleeding everywhere. I'm Will Scarlet and I've been assigned to be a hunter.

Aug. 19th, 2015


I didn't introduce myself properly here last time, so I'm going to try again.

Herc Hansen. I was a pilot with the Royal Australian Air Force, and then a ranger with the Pan-Pacific Defense Corps. The PPDC was created to protect the cities surrounding the Pacific Ocean from the kaiju that had begun attacking us. We built a defense mechanism - jaegers - and I was a pilot for years before being forced to promoted to Marshal of the PPDC. I'd ask if there are any jaegers about, but that seems like a stupid question.

And now I'm here. Geiszler would have a field day with this traveling to another universe stuff.

I'd like to say sorry to the doctors I almost ate. And to the guy with the beard. And to the person who tried to tell me about my bunk assignment. I'm sorry I almost ate you. It's not personal. And if you're not annoying, it probably won't happen again.

I'm Malia. This whole dimensional travel thing is crap and I miss my boyfriend, and I think I'm probably just hallucinating again or I went crazy, but thanks for not killing me on sight. I don't understand what's happening and I don't like it but the lack of pending death is kind of refreshing.

I don't suppose any of you would be able to find a set of knitting needles and some yarn, and bring it to me in medical. I'm allowed to have visitors, I'm told, and would dearly love the opportunity to keep my hands busy while doing so.

Otherwise, I hope everyone is feeling better?

Filter to Kaidan & Shepard
Shepard, thank you. I don't know what would have happened to me if you hadn't taken me to Medical. That I didn't lose the baby is a miracle, and I can only think that part of the reason why is you moving so quickly to help me.

Being here, I miss my wife. Marian was [...] hard-headed, but she was also one of the most loyal, brave, and kind people I know. Her loss has been felt for over a year, and I wonder sometimes if I should ever "get over" her. But I do know this: she would not care to see me brooding as I have been for so long, or throwing my life towards people who are toxic to me and to Nottingham and the outlying villages, Locksley included. Here, she would be entreating me to include myself in the community, getting to know you all while I contribute my share to our welfare. I still grieve her, but there is no point in wallowing in that grief, to allowing it to dictate my thoughts and actions, to keep me from gaining new and trusted friends. I thank you all for the patience you have shown me as I have kept to myself. I am ready to be amongst the living now, and I hope that those of you who are struggling similarly will choose to join me.

Now, I am told that there is a book group that meets on Fridays. I've always enjoyed a good tale. Would I be welcome to join you this eve?

I've always wanted children. Pregnancy is supposed to be a lovely time in one's life. A miracle of nature, a time of joy.

It's not. It's horrible. I cry all the time, a few days ago I started getting nauseous before lunch and it doesn't end for hours. I spend more time in the ladies room than I do anywhere else, and anything I eat just comes back up.

And I miss Gilbert and this is not my home.

Filter to Kaidan
I feel terrible. Or I will.

Filter to Beth Greene and Tont Gates
A few days ago I started gettjng very, very nauseous in the afternoons. Is there anything you can give me to help?

Where is my wife?

If whoever, or whatever it was that decided to bring me here. Has brought me here without Belle, they will deeply regret this.

Aug. 5th, 2015


Kind as the medical people are. I think this is going to take some getting used to.

Hello Mount Weather, I'm Belle.

I've never been fond of introductions so I'll cut to the chase. My name is Snow White, and I've heard that you've met my Sheriff, Bigby Wolf. I'm Deputy Major of Fabletown, a small community in New York City that has been around for quite some time to protect our secret. Like most of you, we're not from around here, and aren't even from the same world that we were taken from. Our Fabletown Compact normally forbids me from speaking so plainly (under severe penalties) but it's my understanding that many of you are also from stories — some written in books, some in movies and television — and I'm interested in hearing about you and working together.

Who is in charge here? I would very much like to speak to them.

Why is everything fucking computers now jesusgoddamn

I'm looking for a lady named Snow White. Tall, white, black hair, probably bossing someone around.

ETA: Never mind, wrong Snow.

This place stinks of werewolves. Anyone want to explain what the fuck is up with that?

Thanks to Sarah's wonderful suggestion, I've started planning sex education lessons for our children. For each age group, we will provide developmentally appropriate information, mostly focused on understanding their anatomy and preparing for the changes that will occur during puberty. We'll also cover gender identity, sexual orientation, body safety & consent, and the reproductive process -- including, yes, how babies are conceived -- again, always at an age-appropriate level.

Parents: Of course, you may have concerns about what your children will hear. Or you may wish to teach them yourself, but you're not sure what to say. Many of you come from a time when sex wasn't spoken about, ever, and even today it can be an intimidating topic! So you're invited, too. If there's interest, we can have a parents-only session first, to give you an idea of how we teach this subject and why it's so important. Otherwise, you're welcome to attend your child's lesson. If all goes well, we can start next week.

Not a parent? Don't tune out just yet! I'm also organizing a session for teenagers & adults who may not have gotten this education back home, as well as those who'd like a refresher. This class will include a little more grown-up information, including condom demonstrations and other safe sex tips. You'll also have the chance to ask questions in an open-minded, judgment-free zone!

If you're interested in attending, or in assisting with these presentations, please let me know. I'd especially love to have someone (perhaps from medical?) who can discuss the birth control options available here.

[Teachers & child caretakers]
You are all, of course, welcome to attend and/or teach these classes with me. We may not have a huge student population here, but they will need to be split into several age groups. Besides, the best type of sex ed is an ongoing discussion. Any of us could end up fielding questions from the kids we're entrusted with, so it's important for us to be prepared with answers!
