It's amazing how being here can make you afraid of the most mundane of actions. Is turning on the water going to make me grow gills? Is stepping through a door going to send us plummeting to a seventh level of hell? Am I going to wake up in a dimension where Mal never experimented with goat cheese and our house, ergo, is smell free?


I'm hiring for cashiers and bakers over at Once Upon a Pie. So if any of you desperate souls are in need of a job and can follow direction well, come down on Monday anytime from 10 AM to noon. [Address]

Are we all back to normal?

I took a cursed nap, my husband was a bird, and none of this is even shocking anymore.

If there are any other magic users, or even just creative thinkers, who are interested, I'd really like to find some ways to mix my light magic with other magic or technology here if anyone has any thoughts.

I had considered filtering this post, but it could also be an open debate. Daria, Torunn, and anyone else considering taking or having any interest in art history, what interests you about art and art history? What do you wish to learn? What aspects or themes, across the swath of history we cannot hope to entirely cover in a single course, do you wish to explore? What art do you like today that you would like to see the roots of?

Art has been with us a long time, and though we may only see bits and pieces of the most ancient works here, we can appreciate today the wide array of human creativity. We can see it from the highest masterpieces to book and album covers, even in the graphic design we see all around us.


Has anyone here ever made goat milk cheese before? Because I am apparently very, very bad at it, and I don't know how I'm doing it wrong.

Hot sauce was so much easier.

I'm looking for a model to sit for a portrait. Any takers?

So I find myself double booked for my shift on Saturday: 6 PM to 12 AM. Would anyone be willing to swap schedules for me for that one day? I'd like to have a solution in place before I ask the higher ups about it.

Of the many tragedies we've all seen through this place, I'd say that Mal Oretsev's facial hair is the worst.

Napoleon, Genya, help.

Crash Day was not something I had initially expected to become a successful business setting, but it did, and I am glad that I took the chance. It wouldn't have been possible without a friend giving me the idea and helping build my booth. This would be a great start to getting my own place of business.

I'd like to treat you both to dinner sometime. This weekend?

Not quite what I was expecting to find when I came down to use the pool, but I understand the impulse.

not an ic cut - an armadillo, chilling on a pool float )

Texas has such peculiar wildlife.

We return bearing gifts!

Technically we returned last night.

And most of the gifts are wine from Napa Valley.

But that's not the point. The point is aren't you glad to see us?


This Crash Day business is truly fascinating. From how seriously they're all taking it, one would think it's a festival for a saint.

Have you considered offering your services to make people look more like aliens? Because I think a lot of people would go for that.

So ...

What do you want to do for your birthday?

Jun. 24th, 2018


What kind of lights are these?

Jun. 17th, 2018


Well, I went to a used car lot looking for a car to get, and I ended up finding something else instead.

It needs some work, and I still need to decide what kind of food I want to use it for, but owning my own food truck has always been something that sounds really cool. I just need to look into permits, costs of running it, that sort of thing.

...Might have been of an impulsive decision, but why not do something that I love while I'm here? I like cooking at the Crashdown, but it'll be so much cooler to run my own place.


It's been a few days but I didn't see any rush on announcing my return. See things have changed a bit here in Tumbleweed since my last visit. Can't say I'm terribly surprised by it given the way things operate. Still, the town rearranging itself did give me just as much pause as it growing in size last year.

Not sure who is here that I made acquaintance with previously but I'll go ahead and reintroduce myself. Names Ethan Chandler.

This one or this one?

Gaby, I'm stealing you once school is over for a road trip. I promised to show you America and I'm going to be a man of my word.

It would seem that this doorway into this world has fit to send me my personal vials of color dye that I often use for my Tailoring. I will have an even easier time seeing to anyone's makeup, eye color and hair color if anyone so chooses.

Are there any qualms against the potential use of the farm as a set up for a salon? I will confine it to my bedroom so you're not having too many strangers walking through your home.

May. 16th, 2018


I obviously got the best power swap, because I'm a pirate captain now.

May. 12th, 2018


No. No. I don't want this face.

Is there someone out there missing their ability to [...] turn into other people?

Have you ever tried putting your light magic into some kind of a talisman?

Well, I'm not entirely sure if I've cracked or if this is another form of merzost, but I'll play along. I'm Genya and I have just arrived. Would anyone please point me in the direction of the Sun Summoner and her tracker boyfriend?

For those who are not already regulars and familiar with the Howlett Gym schedule, I teach a class in nonmagical defense against magic, a particular specialty of mine and one that I would argue is exceptionally useful in a place like this. It is open anyone, including magical folk, who can alternate between magical sparring and nonmagical sparring, to help others practice and to learn the skills themselves to fight without their magic.

In fact, I would greatly appreciate more magic folk joining in, to give students a wide range of types of magic to learn to defend themselves against. Alina helps me regularly with her light magic, but as she is not allowed to actually cut anyone in half, she sometimes gets bored with blinding people.

If you have an ability that is technically non-magical but makes you more powerful than the average person, I might be willing to work you in as well. Let me know if you're interested, and we can discuss your abilities beforehand so that I can formulate a lesson plan. This has always been on a volunteer basis, or rather you would be considered a regular participant in the class; however, I might be willing to pay a few people out of my own pocket if they bring important skills to the table, especially since I know money is a concern for everyone right now. If that's something you're interested in, we can discuss it further, and of course the gym owner, Laura, would have to sign off on it as well.

The class meets Monday through Friday, 4 PM - 5:30 PM. I hope to see you there.

So you're staying with me, I won't hear any arguments about it.

Next order of business... there's a lot going on. Clearly. But I feel like we - as in the community - could benefit from an evening of being social. Where people can mingle and exchange thoughts on jobs and what they may do here now that we're in Texas.

And since the pool is here, it only makes sense that I combine the slumber party I wanted with a pool party. Thoughts?

Just checking in. Please don't overwork yourselves.

It's weird to think that there are spaces that just wait for us.

But I am glad to be back at the farm.


It's strange going to sleep on the boat and waking up in my old bed at the farm. The same farm that burned down back home. I've searched every inch of the property and it's definitely the family farm. Even the barn is here. At least there aren't any Walkers All the plants I found while on the boat are on the porch, so I should plant a garden now that I've got a place to make one.

[Glenn Rhee]
We should find someone to make our documents for us, since they aren't here. While that's being taken care of, I think we should set up security around the farm. I don't want to take any chances.


What the fuck. St. Agnes is here.

Do you think my [...] ability would work on someone else's magic, besides yours?

April Fools' Day is about betrayal and I'm not down with that.

What a curious ship. And already I have heard tales that more curious things can be hunted down. I would readily like to hear them. And a drink to all who do.

My name is Alucard Emery of Arnes. I have been a pirate, a privateer, a champion of the Element Games (still reigning), to name a few titles. And on foreign waters, I am in need of new friends.

I've been informed by one Maleyn Oretsev that I'm not "social enough."

So here. An obligatory post brought to you by Alina Starkov.

How do you feel about meeting a magician from a world similar to ours? More similar than any other world I've heard described, at least.

Do you want to do anything for our birthday this weekend, or just skip the celebration all together?


Hoo boy. Gonna skip the whole happy but not happy to be here shtick and jump straight to seeing if anyone made it with me. This is kind of a long list 'cause apparently I'm super social in dire dystopian scenarios. Roll call?

Gale you better be here, I didn't forget you. Dean, Bae, Zelda, Cap-y x2 (that means you Hook and Steve), Tink, Zelda, Lissa?

Bueller? Kidding. Ferris wasn't there, but I bet he'd have brightened up the desert.

Having been here a number of days now, I can safely say that nothing will surprise me ever again. I do believe everything is down hill from here.

For those that knew them, I am sorry to be the one to inform you that Buffy Summers and Nikolai Lantsov have disappeared.

My name is Gaby Teller, but as my counterpart has already seen fit to introduce me, I thought it only fair that I return the favor.

Be on the lookout for one Napoleon Solo. Over six feet tall, brown hair, blue eyes, fills out a suit nicely, and could charm the habit off a nun. Guard your virtue and possibly your valuables.

Sweet mother of Saint Vladimir, there is a freaking JURA coffee maker sitting on my counter.
I was slightly joking about that when those "letters from Santa" came out but it is HERE and I'm not going to sleep for the next few days, am I?

Also, I have a cat now. She's fluffy, grey, and basically perfect. And also giving me a shoulder massage with her paws. Be jealous.


I'd like to apologize for the display yesterday. And any thunder that came at night.

Onto better things, I received the gifts I asked for. My helmet, Jarnbjorn (a weapon I used before Odin gave me Mjolnir, I hope she doesn't get jealous), and pictures of my family. Loki and Torunn, you'll want to see these.

Before I forget:

Shark socks and make-your-own hot sauce. How did you know, Secret Santa?


This hot sauce kit requires sterilizing solution and gloves. I will try not to blow up your kitchen, Nikolai.

What sort of things does 'Santa Claus' normally bring as gifts? I have no idea what to ask for. I'm open to suggestions.
