So when people disappear does their magic fat man appearing money go too or is that something that could be redistributed to the masses?

Feb. 9th, 2020


Hello, inhabitants of Tumbleweed. My name is Clover Ebi. My friend and I have just arrived and, despite the arcane technology, I have been informed this is the best way to reach out to the rest of you who are here. I believe 'the Displaced' was the current term used to describe us all, but please correct me if I'm wrong. I'd like the opportunity to get to know the people here better, but I understand to get information, sometimes one must give information, so let me start it off.

I hail from the kingdom of Atlas. I'm the leader of the kingdom's Ace Operatives and a huntsman. I have heard this place is different from Remnant and you do not have much need for Huntsman and Huntresses as there are no Grimm. I'm sure I can take my skills from home and apply them wherever necessary should we be here for a while. Not that there's anything to go back to for me

My friend, Qrow Branwen, is a huntsman as well. He may be a little less optimistic than the regular person, but he's really not as bad as he makes himself out to be. Don't take his words to heart. He doesn't mean half of what he says.

Please, if someone could direct me somewhere that I could find reasonably priced and well made clothing, I would appreciate it. I came with only one outfit and it is, rather unfortunately, destroyed and soaked in blood. And any tips for a new outfit for a man who wears a cloak that looks like it's been half eaten by a Grimm would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I'd like to give a thank you to the medical team for setting me straight and for whoever made those handy potions.

There seem to be consequences to [...] poking the bear. Count me among those who've lost one of their senses.

I haven't been able to hear anything for the last ten minutes.

Will you come and take a look at me? Then we can decide if I should also be examined by one of the clinicians here. Unless they've looked me up, they don't know about my [...] current condition.

I have been pondering what it is I want to do, while here. Which makes me curious about everyone else's thoughts. What's the thing you're most proud of/glad to have done since coming here? What do you most still want to do? What can you do that you cannot at home?

How much sailing have you done yet?

Hello again. How have you been settling in? I saw you on the charity post. And I thought it's been too long.

SO if the world is currently rid of the meddlesome geese and/or if anyone isn't afraid of leaving their apartments because of them, would anyone be interested in a jam session sometime this weekend?


TIL it only costs $21,000 to be able to officially vote on new emoji.

⚡ will be hosting a fundraiser for this soon. Watch this space.

What's everyone's charitable agendas so we can make sure we're not ovelapping? Shall we do brunch at the Lilac Elephant Breakfast Club and discuss?

I'm trying a spell to counter act the truth effect going around.

Anyone want to try commenting with an obvious lie? Focus on the image and type.

So if people can't lie does that mean it's time for a truth telling meme?

Jan. 4th, 2020


I wonder whether anyone would be willing to offer some - I don't quite know whether to call it financial advice, or arithmetic. In your dollars, is thirty-seven millions considered to be rather a lot? It sounds like rather a lot.

Dec. 21st, 2019


Every December I've not had to set foot in the foul damp that's London I've considered an escape worthy of being celebrated, and I'm very happy to report that this will make nine in a row. This year I have much more to celebrate than avoiding a chill, so please allow me to introduce myself by expressing my gratitude at finding myself here. It seems a wonderful sort of place, and while I've no doubt I'll make a perfect fool of myself sooner rather than later, I do that in the city, too. I hate to begin by begging everyone's patience, but it won't be the first time, nor the last. I can only assure you I do my best to be a quick learner.

If Holland was here, he'd I don't

I'm just going to go out and say it. These movies are weird. It's one thing to know there's some sappy weirdo girl with my face in a show about Hannibal Lecter. It's another to have someone with my name in a weird Christmas movie. Absolutely not. I'm ready for New Years Eve already.

Hello dear, have you had any water in the last hour? Please drink some more. For your health and well being. It's incredible what has happened here over the time we've worked on the portal. I have enjoyed it immensely, and you are an incredible magician to work with. It is with no harsh feelings that I wanted to let you know I will be resigning my position with the Bureau. We never know how much time we will have, and I want us all to choose carefully what we do with the gift it is. For me, the time has come that it means working elsewhere and on other magics. I wish you only the best with the portal, for I know this work is meaningful and valuable.

Filtered: FNRB Leadership
Thank you all for the work you do. It has been an honor to work with you. I am rendering my resignation, for two weeks time. Though you may always call on me during the emergencies we face as a community. Sincerely.

I know we all must think of what we want for Christmas, especially from the portal. I am tempted to request more of the wine I cannot otherwise come by here (not even piracy can help us there, Bard). But I wonder about the practice of New Year's resolutions. Has anyone begun thinking of those? Have had good ones in years past? Have kept one (and which one?).

Nov. 29th, 2019


So is this a life of leisure situation? You've all this technology, doesn't seem to be a need to work, we all just exist?

Nov. 24th, 2019


Does anyone make things here? Like, say, a life-sized replica of a dog house... tomb?

I thought I'd put out some feelers for Zero's Christmas present.

Nov. 15th, 2019


Belated as it is, we are having a birthday celebration for the love of my life, my dear husband, Rhy Maresh. It is, as ever, a gift to have each other here, and in that spirit everyone is invited. The only gift we ask of you is your company this Saturday, November 16th beginning at 4pm at the beautiful Playa Miramar. A portal will be set up at our residence to take you there, and you are welcome to join us by other means.

There will be food, drinks, and music as late into the night as you wish. If you would like to spend the night or two as well, let us know, and we shall arrange rooms for you.

We hope to see you there.

[Filter: Quidditch Team Four*]
Not to pressure you guys but we need to completely destroy the other teams. This week has been the worst.

*Rhy Maresh, Bonnie Bennett, Fleur Weasley, Ronan Lynch, Marceline Abadeer, Alucard Emery, Charlie Weasley

Aug. 16th, 2018


Guess what, Quidditch players? We've got enough of you to field four full teams! Quidditch practices start next week in the evenings, on this schedule. And games will start in September, after each team's had a couple weeks to train together.

Teams should pick a team name, color (if you want a different one from what you've already been assigned), and captain, and let me know about your decisions on that anytime between now and the start of the season. Good luck, everyone! I can't wait to see you on the pitch.

I'm impartial, of course, but I think Team 3 is gonna be the best.

(OOC: if you'd like to make any changes to your character's position or team, please let me know ASAP so I can figure out how to arrange it! I did my best to accommodate everyone and I think it worked out pretty well, but I'm happy to try to work with you. :D)

WHEN: Tuesday, August 7, 1 PM - 5 PM

WARNINGS: There better not be any; Rhy will kick your ass if you mess this up.
NOTE: I'm doing this early because I'm leaving very early in the morning tomorrow and then will be completely AFK. If you have any questions or w/e please direct them to Sil.

This is a rush job so it doesn't have pretty pictures except in links but have a cut anyway )

I guess sailing's okay. It was different to see how it works when it's not a magic boat.

[Ronan Lynch]
I have a mission for you. Sort of. More like a request. I could probably do it on my own and you're not exactly the person I should probably choose if I don't want it to come back to me, but I won't get in trouble for this and the old man won't know it's because of me.

I'm lodging a complaint - no one's thrown a party in awhile. Someone fix this.

I'm heading out of town this weekend with Quentin and possibly Margo. I've made some ready to eat meals and they're in the freezer. Just pop them into the oven, the times for how long are on each container.

Jul. 28th, 2018


I'm Eliot. I understand you've already met someone who shares a strong resemblance in name, face, and hopefully an excellent taste in vests and alcoholic beverages. Some of you have been here for some time, and I am hoping you can help me.

This isn't my first time being pulled into another world, or my second, or even third, or forth, and so on. Some of you have also been pulled into other worlds which may or may not have been purgatory like before ending up here. I'm trying to get some information on my friends? They might have mentioned a Hell Hotel? Hotel Kairos?

Paul Rovia, aka Jesus
Claire Novak
Gretel (yes, that one)
Judith Grimes
Rowena Ravenclaw
Godric Gryffindor

Just looking to see if anyone else made it out. Any information you might have would be deeply appreciated.

[Eliot's Homeworld(s)]
So, hello. I've just spent the last two years in a semi-sentient, murderous hotel. How're things?

[Quentin Coldwater]
Jesus fuck, Q. Except not literally. Are you my Q? Were you at the hotel? Please tell me you made it out, too. I'm still in quarantine.

[Filter: Magic Users]
Those of you interested in learning the wandless casting style from my world, I'm going to offer free classes every Tuesday and Thursday starting next week, from 3:00pm to 4:30pm at [location*]. It'll start basic, mostly to help some of you get hand gestures down who haven't used them before.

(*The location is not rented out, but something abandoned that will be magically warded to keep from being seen or heard from the outside. They're free classes, people. She's not spending money on this.)

I think it is beyond time that I reach out and make introductions. My name is Elizabeth Swann and I arrived in your company just a few days ago. I've been giving myself some time to adjust to this new set of circumstances. I find this has been a far easier adjustment than my initial leap through time. One year is certainly easier than a few centuries. My friend has informed me that there are some among you who were also in our community in our previous reality but he says that number is small. So, my question to you is, are there others who were pulled from their home time and placed in a situation similar to this but prior to your arrival here?

As it were, I am rather disappointed that my ship has not followed me to this reality but my apartment did. I would gladly trade the apartment for the Black Pearl any day. Of course, it would be useless without water to dock it in, but I am not accustomed to being away from it for such a length of time and it has only been four days.

Do you carry a mirror?

I've taken up a residence with Miss Charlotte Wells, who recently arrived. I only mention it because you will likely be guests at her party on the 13th. I doubt I will be in attendance, but I have put up magical warding on the house. It won't give you any trouble.

Jun. 10th, 2018


We've gotten three bogeys on our portal scanner, and they are not in town. Ones in Queens, another in Kearney, Nebraska, and the other is in Siberia. This is an all hands on deck situation, as we're ridiculously understaffed. Our Googler is on the internet, looking for social media related to it. So far, it's just portals. We have no idea what's coming.

I need civilians who are willing to fight whatever comes out of there and take orders.

Jun. 9th, 2018


I see congratulations are in order for forming your own country. It is a terrible shame that I should arrive here in the New World along with Mrs. Quigley's home, but no Mrs. Quigley to speak of, nor anyone else who previously resided there. It is a fine and most reputable house, visited often by those with of discerning tastes. Now there only vacancies to be filled. Whatever am I to do?

There is still plenty of wine to drink, the vintage most agreeable in my time, though I suspect might be a curiosity in yours. It would be absolutely wicked of me to indulge without offering. Therefore I have no choice but to cordially invite all of you to my home on the Eve of the Thirteenth, which I find appropriate given my circumstances, at [address].

If you are a gambler, I would be most honored to host you at my table.

Please come in your most fashionable. I am curious to see more of what people are wearing these days. I still have much to learn of your world and am grateful for the company.

To new friendships,
Miss Charlotte Wells

I'm glad you both came. )

Everybody meet Napoleon! He looks just like his namesake, doesn't he? What an uncanny resemblance.

cut for picture, not an IC cut )


Yeah, alright, Jan. You win. Nobody got killed at the ball and I actually had a good time. I owe you an ice cream or something.

I'm only slightly less grumpy with being here now.

Jun. 1st, 2018


I am doing "market research". I understand this is very important to running a successful business.

How many people here use swords, blades and other edged weapons as their preferred method of fighting or defense?

How many people here are interested in acquiring an a blade or require a blade with unusual specifications or qualities?

Thank you for your response!

I would like to start a business. I have been reading up on it on the internet. I thought as a successful business owner yourself, you could walk me through the process you went through to get started?

Would you be interested in an apprenticeship? I thought after our discussion at the party you might be interested in the art of bladesmithing.

May. 23rd, 2018


It's kind of creepy how the portal seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. Kind of Big Brother is watching-ish.

I had a gift come through from the portal today. It's a Hand of Glory. When it's lit, it opens a door. Any door I want it to. Most likely including whatever Otherside Ty is stuck on.

I think this is it.

I think I found my solution to my ghost friend problem. I received something called the Hand of Glory, it opens doors. It should be powerful enough for me to pull Tyler through, especially since somehow he's just right there. Alucard, would you take a look?

Regina, Pixie, is there any chance you'd both be willing to be there just in case? The magic should come from the Hand itself, but I don't know what the rules are in this world and I'm concerned I might need backup magic to fall back on. It's not guaranteed, but I'd feel better with an Emergency Plan B.

Have you ever heard of a Hand of Glory?

May. 16th, 2018


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