Has anyone tried to pull a Popeye yet? I'm operating under the assumption it'll work but I wonder if it has to be canned or if you could get by with one of those freezer bags and if it'd have the same effect.

Probably has to be canned. Comedic effect and all.

Heard through the grapevine you're affected. You doing alright, kid?

Is anyone possibly interested in a Looney Tunes marathon because of all this?

So if anyone who has been - transformed - needs anything feel free to let me know. I 'll be happy to do help if I can.

For those who are interested, we're doing Legos again this Saturday night at our place. Bring your Legos, bring a snack, bring a friend if you want.

I've decided I'm signing up for one class at the University. We'll see how this goes.

Fun fact: the average life expectancy of a Torchwood agent is 30 years. Mind you, that is skewed downwards a little by the fact that repeated deaths are counted individually, but regardless I think it's at least a small achievement that I'm just over a week away from hitting the mark.

So, they tell me that fighting in armies and killing monsters since I was four doesn't not constitute an ability to take care of myself. So, uh, help? I need an adult, apparently. Before I fry every computer in this building.

We're going to help get people to safety because there's something crazy going on in town with a dragon or something.


Holy shit, there's a fucking DRAGON in the middle of town. And not like Dolls's kind of dragon, a legit dragon.

I believe I will take you up on your offer to stay, at least for a time.

I know Percy and I were planning for it and I know I've been going to school without monsters destroying things, but it still feels surreal knowing that I'll be going to college in the fall. And I don't even have to be in New Rome to do it. I can't wait to start.

Camp Halfblood Cook Out this Friday starting at 6pm. Hey, Steve and the Avengers and all them peeps are doing it, I wanted one for us young people too, but didn't want the dates to overlap, since everyone is invited to that one and I'm sure we'll be going too.

The Camp is big enough for a number of people. We have grills, we have a pool, archery practice grounds, sparring practice grounds (I mean, if you're feeling like you need to practice during the cookout to digest any of that food)... Pokemon all welcome! There will be both vegan/vegetarian/non-veg options. We welcome ALL!

Also, we may or may not do fireworks later on in the night depending on how many people are comfortable with it with their pets. We can always save that for 4th of July anyway.

Let me know if you plan on coming and what your preference/request is for food so I have the right amount of stuff!

Everything is set for school in the fall and I am working on getting a summer job so that I can support school and make sure we don't starve. I've read a couple books and started working on a few ideas for architectural projects just in case. I'm sure I won't need them, but it's better to be prepared than not.

Does anyone want to come with me to buy tasteful, but affordable clothes for interviews?

There are pixies in my room who are making a mess of my art supplies.

They're not ruining any of my current paintings, thankfully, but it's going to take forever to get the paint they spilled out of the carpet.

Okay, I was going to propose we have some big Summer Vacations Woot! sort of BBQ at some point next month but I figured we might as well do something with food sometime this coming weekend. All of us. Especially now that Thalia is back.

Saturday or Sunday? We can do BBQ in the evening or have some early brunch thing. I can bribe Bucky to make pancakes. :) :)


Dammit. How long was I gone on this end?

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.

Going back to finish high school is depressing. And I still suck at English class, apparently.

Hey cute boy with the hot bike. Can we go riding?

I haven't harassed you in a while. It's tragic. How's work?

May. 28th, 2018


While I realize that many people here already know how to fight, there may be some who are looking to learn new skills. I am teaching sambo at Howlett Gym. If you have never heard of sambo, it is the Russian martial art. I am 1953 Soviet champion. Mostly sambo is learning how to disarm another person, to get them to the ground and subdue them. Very effective self-defense.

This video has some good examples of sambo techniques. If you are interested in the class or want to learn more, do not hesitate to ask.

What new level of Tartarus is this place? Yes, I heard the welcome spiel - alternate dimension, mysterious portal, all that good stuff - but what's the ETA on a ticket back home? It's absolutely imperative I get back immediately.

Unless this handsome asshole is around. Or this one. Preferably both of them. Then I can take my time.

Something feels off. I don't [...] I don't understand what's going on. It's like being in It's like It feels dull and I can read English without using any tricks to do so. I'm still aware of my surroundings, but it's not the same.

So I know Diana's gone, which means the younger ones don't have a guardian anymore. I'm 18, which means I can take on at least two of you. Percy, do you want to be a guardian? I don't want to offer you up without your consent.

If anyone would like a guardian outside of the group, that's obviously okay. I just wanted to give you the option of someone you knew.

I started to make good progress on more paintings from the cruise!

[Attached are some pictures of paintings of Atlantis, Agrabah, The Enchanted Forest, and Alola]

Smeargle's done a couple of paintings of his own, too!

Also. I've decided that if anyone wants anything painted or drawn, I'm going to open up commissions. Prices are negotiable.

My Rockruff's disappeared on me. Haven't seen him since this afternoon, and I thought he'd just be playing around on camp with Percy's dogs but I haven't seen him.

Please let me know if you've managed to spot him!

This has honestly made my day. It's kind of amazing to see things like this and imagine the planning and work that went into making them a reality.

So, the good news is only two of the Galra sentries were damaged beyond repair, so those have become our supply of spare parts. The rest are in decent enough shape. Their programming has been hacked to make them friendly and on our side. That seemed like a higher priority than repairing what damage they took. Which is next on the to do list. But hey, if we have use for 18 robot sentries, we should discuss that. For now, they're in the Castle of Lions. Also, if we want to customize them further (beyond y'know their regular fighting/guard/etc duties and utter lack of a sense of humor), that's definitely possible. Never thought I would be so happy to see Galra sentries, but honestly it's great, and I wouldn't mind if other Galra robots come through. Though please, no robeasts.

Filtered: Team Voltron
We had a lot of beeps of disappearance today, and I've spent most of it in the belly of the Castle of Lions, so if you could all check in that would be great.
Filtered: Keith & Matt
So, those two sentries getting damaged beyond repair isn't necessarily the worst thing ever. Some of those parts could likely be scavenged for use in your arm, Keith, if you don't mind me using Galra tech/circuitry. I'd still prefer the mithril exterior because sentry plating just isn't anywhere close to it (or Shiro's arm).

On this fine Friday the Thirteenth, some of you may find yourself wondering what to do with your free evening. Here at the Camp, we have a lot of space and a wide movie selection, so here's an open invitation to come and hang out for a low key welcome back get together. There'll be swimming, movie watching (theme to be decided by attendees), and a bonfire for singing and toasting marshmallows. We'll order some pizza, but if you want to bring some snacks, food, or drinks (non-alcoholic please) over, feel free.

I guess the party officially will start 6ish, but you can show up whenever you like.

I'm happy to be back to school. I've gotten back into the swing of things and I've found out that I received grant money for when I start school in the fall. Architecture degree here I come!

That being said, as the Architect of Olympus (an official title) if anyone needs any of my services, I can make time for you around school, homework, and patrols.

If someone knows where any possible spider pokemon might be here, I would like very much to avoid them for my own comfort. I would be very grateful.

By now you're all aware that the ship has stopped. It would appear that we've been hit with an EMP, an electromagnetic pulse. Possibly two. All electronics appear to be off, though the network and tablets have been re-established so we can communicate easier. We're not sure the extent of the damage, but backup generators have not come online so those must have been hit too.

Right now, our priorities should be food and getting the ship back up and running. We have no idea where we are in terms of our next port. It could be a day, it could be two. Without food, two days becomes much longer than you want. Potable water is going to be an issue too. While there are bottled waters, we have no running water. On a ship like this, that means toilets, showers, and sinks will not work. They're all electrical.

If anyone has any skills, magical or otherwise, for keeping food at temperatures to keep it from going bad, that would be fantastic. Food storage, including refrigeration and the freezers are on level C. Medbay is on D. A & B are engine rooms, so that'll be fun to dig through.

Those EMPs came from somewhere and for some reason. I don't want to be caught blindsided. If you're specialized in tech, I'd prefer you working on the ship. If you aren't sure what you can do and want to help, patrols are good. Bucky 2 has a current list, but I think we should have more considering.

If you're down an arm or a leg due to the EMP, let us know. We'll try to get someone to help you as soon as possible.

Anyone got a way to the Underworld? I need a favor.

I've found us a way to the Underworld. I'd like to get water from each of the rivers, if we're down there. They might be useful later.

The architecture here is just [...] amazing. I have a strong urge to map out the blueprints for this and see if I can even manage. Maybe with Daedalus' laptop. Minas Tirith is just awe inspiring. Even the strategic advantages.

Dear fellow demigods and friends of the demigods. I'm going to request that everyone take as many pictures as possible so whenever Jason Grace shows his late ass here at some point in the future, we're going to show him all of them and tell him "this is what you get for not showing up here, ya flying douchecanoe".

Unless he shows up like this week, which I'll also take.

I think the architecture of Atlantis may have been some of my favorite. Of course, some of it reminded me a bit too much of being in Rome and Greece, but there were some distinctly different elements that I really enjoyed.

Did anyone have anything in particular they enjoyed about Atlantis?

Please tell me all of you are safe.

I'm fine, I've been holed up in the community center during all of this. Trying to stay sane, but really, losing my mind knowing that all of you are out there and I'm stuck in here feeling useless.

I think now that I'm a bit more settled, I should introduce myself. Hello, my name is Bella Hartley. I was born in Australia, but because of my parents work we lived all over the world. I've only recent come back to Australia and finished school before I was brought here.

I like to sing, I actually was in a band back home. I love swimming and being out in nature and I'mI'm also a mermaid. I only transform when water touches my skin, but I can do other things too. I can control water and turn it into either a jelly substance or glass. I was nine years old when I changed and living in Ireland at the time.

So yeah, that's me. I guess this is going to be my new home for a while.

I wish I had been able to see this coming. Though I doubt even if the Oracle was talking to me right now, I'd be able to see this.

Ugh, at least we're in a port. I've never been a fan of cruises. I always get the worst seasickness.

Also, since I'm still a minor, I need a guardian or I'll be stuck in quarantine forever. So... help, please?

Guess, I should introduce myself, then. I'm Rachel Elizabeth Dare.

I'm torn between wanting to be super excited to visit a place with more elements of what I call home.. or disappointed because I know for a fact that this Atlantis isn't Dad's home, so I won't be seeing him there or my half-brother.

Then again, if I saw either of them, I'd worry that we suddenly are in my world, and would basically tell everyone to scatter because most of the gods are total dicks. Sometimes, that includes my dad although he's not as worse as others.

Still would be nice to see my brother again.

Going to school on a cruise ship is definitely new. I don't mind it. I have a lot of things I want to do and keep up with. Plus, it's not like I can't spend time doing other things once school is over. Anything that might make it college easier is what I'm most interested in.
