Sometimes I really hate it here. The good news is that we have enough of the good booze to last through New Year's Eve, but it will be a bit of a wait before the next batch is done. Enjoy it while it lasts, everyone.

Thanks for listening the other day. You're a good friend to listen through all of that.

I was told that my Mum only had one little bit of me, at the end. I hope she passed away before the rest of it. I hope she didn't have to know how bad I got.

On the heels of the Iceshine that Kalli told you lot about a few days ago, I'm pleased to tell you all that on the New Year we'll have a beer available that promises to actually be good. So there's that to look forward to. And I've finally got around to decorating the pub, so it looks festive in here, and there's some real pine boughs so it smells nice.

Would either of you be willing to help me with my Patronus Charm?

I have good news. The brewers have made vodka. The catch is that it's blue. I sent some samples to the lab and was told that there's nothing wrong with it, it's safe to drink. It's just blue. And right now it's being infused with various flavours, so there's that.

It's pretty brilliant, we've got an alcohol now that's not bad, in all honesty. And it's been diluted down to a strength that won't kill anyone on contact.

There was something else oh, right The tavern is pretty well open for operation, and has been for a little while. But we're still working on a name, so if anyone has any suggestions, that'd be brilliant.

I've done it. I've found a book that talks about how make all sorts of alcohol, and doesn't get to caught up in the technical details and maths that it's impossible to understand. So I req'd some potatoes and I'm going to start making vodka today. And I read a bit about how to actually dilute alcohol so that we can get the proofs we want, and I've got some various herbs and things so that we can start infusing it all.

Basically we're going to give this place the best Christmas and New Year's ever, and your friends will have pretty decent drinks for their wedding.

So that pod that dropped a few days ago had my medi-wizard bag in it. I thought I'd give you first crack at what's in it, since you're the actual Healer and will be able to really use any of it before I do. I'd just restocked it, from the looks of it, so it's pretty well good to go. I saw extra bottles of Pepper-Up potion in there, too.

Chatty to Peter Pettigrew

~ You and I need to have a conversation.

I always liked Autumn at home. Scotland always seemed to want to start autumn right when school started, and right up until it started the nasty rainy, snowy weather I liked being outside and watching the leaves change across the lake. The giant squid was always a little friskier, and it was just nice.

All right? I, er. So I don't know if I'll have the time to do it because I'm doing classes, too, but I thought that if you were interested, we might take another look at trying our hands at brewing firewhisky?

How'd last night go? Everyone all right?

I've made up my mind. I was studying to be a mediwizard at home, and i thought that maybe one day I'd be a healer. And I got here and I'm neither of those but it isn't what I wanted to do. So I'm going to take the classes to be a healer here. Or a doctor. They're basically the same thing.

Hello. I'm Peter Pettigrew. At home I was studying to be a mediwizard, and I thought that maybe someday I'd continue and be a healer. So I'm going to take the classes here to do that, but I was wondering if you would be willing to teach me what I need to also be a healer?

Well done out there, everyone. Coming out of a battle like that with so few losses is tremendous, and speaks so well of the courage and fortitude of this community.

[Peter Pettigrew]
Let me know when you're awake. Alistair and I would love to come down to medical to visit, but we wouldn't want to disturb your sleep.

"anonymous" delivery

In the morning, a package is found outside James, Sirius, Remus, and Lily's door, addressed to The Marauders. It contains notes written in Peter's handwriting on how to make Firewhisky. These notes include a notation to use magical water using the spell "Aguamenti". And a note telling them that the grain is in sacks in the brewery, and that they can come get them any time. It's a pretty thick folder, containing a lot of information.

Harry just punched me. I was on my way back from lunch and he just... punched me. The doctor says he broke my nose.

I have it coming, but

I don't know why I'm surprised.

My new colleague Peter suggested that I introduce myself here, if I wanted to meet people. He also suggested that there may be people from my home world here.

Hello there, new world. My name is Kallian Tabris, and I'm most recently of Ferelden, Arling of Amaranthine, but I'm a native of the city of Denerim. I was a Grey Warden there, but I'm told there aren't any Darkspawn here. With no Darkspawn to fight (and praise be to Andraste for that!), I'm calling upon completely different skills and setting to work on brewing and distilling alcohol for you fine people.

Peter and I have recently liberated a few chairs and tables from a storage room, so if you'd like to have a pint of what's currently in stock and come to sit and chat a bit, come visit us in the brewery!

And while we're talking business...who's on the garden and food-gathering staff around here? Peter and I are looking for things with sugar in them to turn into revelry and joy. Talk to us.

It feels weird not including Sirius in this, because he'd love it. But, right, so. James and I talked about figuring out how to make firewhisky, and i talked to Carmichael about it a few weeks ago when he was giving us brewers some tips. But I think I've got it figured out, we've got the grain for a small batch.

So what do you say? Shall we become the the first brewers of firewhisky in the post-apocalyptic world?

You know, I wish you lot would stop complaining about the alcohol. We know it's not good, all right? We know it, and we're working really bloody hard to make it better. But when all we ever hear is "This shite is terrible.", it's really hard to want to come here every day and do our jobs. How about telling us what we're doing right? What you like about one thing or another instead of just always negative? You don't hear us complaining about the food being shite or how we wish the farmers would grow more things, do you? They're doing the best they can, and doing a bloody good job of it. And so are we, you know. We're doing our best, and we're getting better.

And you know. If you know so much about how to brew beer and different wines and how to get started making whiskies with the very limited resources we have here, the door's open throughout the day, and we'd love any help any of you can give us. I'd guess you'd rather just bitch about though.

I'm really, really bloody glad that Mount Weather was still here when we got back. I was half-afraid it was going to be leveled by the hurricane.

I don't suppose that there's anyone here who might have an idea about how a bloke would tan and preserve a hide?


network post: remus lupin

I feel like it's my responsibility to say something.

[...] My name is Remus Lupin, if you haven't met me. I've been a werewolf since I was four years old. More people know about this than I realise, because my private life isn't as private as I'd prefer.

When I first got here in April, I spent the full moon outdoors instead of being contained. We I was attacked by mountain lions, and in the fight that followed I ended up finding and attacking one of the Grounders. I lost track of him, and my memories are fuzzy, but I bit him.

I didn't tell anyone, not until a werewolf killed a Grounder village. [...] The situation here is my fault, and after the werewolf escaped the cells tonight I tried to run. But I can't in good conscience run anymore, and I feel it isn't fair to keep lying to so many of you and pretend that this isn't my fault.

I'm sorry. I am so sorry for what's happened and for the violence I've inadvertently caused. The people in charge here have known about this for a while, but I'm lying to everyone else and acting like I'm not responsible. I know apologies mean nothing, and I'll assist in whatever way I can, or deal with any punishment you see fit.

So there's that.

We can't do this anymore
I can't
I don't know if I can keep doing this with you.

Who: Remus and Peter
When: Oh Thursday, July 2 into early July 3, maybe?
Where: In the hurricane! ... oops?
What: Remus runs away. Peter goes after him.
Rating: Holy Shit for feelings and also for mountain lion death

The shove he gives to Peter's shoulders barely has enough strength to move him. )

People keep disappearing from here, much like we were from our own realities, and yet there seems to be a pervasive lack of curiosity as to where the missing were taken.

So, people of the mountain, what do you think? Is there some Maxwell's Demon at the lever, making sure to keep the ultimate metaphysical balance? Are they in some reality more hellish than this one? Was their disappearance intentional, and they're now being tortured for information? Perhaps we're all slowly descending the levels of Dante's hell, and one day we'll come face to face with Judas himself. Who knows? By then we could have all well earned our spots.
