I feel like we're supposed to be on a cruise right now. I, for one, was actually looking forward to it.

Hey. Would you be willing to do some big warding around my friend's farm? There's a lot of corrupted/dark natural magic going around and we're pretty worried about his animals and trees.

Are you going out for the musical this time around?

Jan. 27th, 2020


Q, we're totally doing this.

Who else is in?

Jan. 24th, 2020


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?

So last year, there was a convention in this area, for soon-to-be brides, and while I had no intentions of getting anything out of it (even if Lance had assumed something then), they had asked me to participate in modeling a few wedding dresses. Those wedding dresses (three in total) ended up in my possession, though they never called me back for them.

They've still been sitting around in my closet for all this time, unused by anyone in this household, of course, so I was wondering... what can be done? Would anyone like to take them? I don't want to toss things out especially considering we all here already have very little since landing here.

Similarly, the portal also gifted me with elven wine this past Christmas. The last time I had enjoyed it was when Sif, Loki, Thor, and I had gone about in Middle Earth together. Considering they (or at least the versions I was close to) are no longer here, I'm not entirely sure if I have the inclination to enjoy these again.

Jan. 4th, 2020


Toward the end of last year, I somehow managed to inherit Once Upon a Pie, and the currently still-unnamed catering business that was slowing forming out of it to go along with my shop, Uncommon Goods. We've lost a lot of staff and management due to the portal. I'm going to be setting up job advertisements for the locals soon, but if anyone is interested in working in sales, baking, or catering we have positions open. I figured I would see if any of my fellow Displaced are seeking jobs first. I could also use one more staff member at Uncommon Goods to work week-days.

Getting dragged to another world against my will loses its thrill after the second or third time it happens to you.

Still, at least this is a world with indoor plumbing and electricity. And modern technology.

And apparently, my house managed to arrive with me, so that's something that's never happened when I've gotten dragged to another world before.

Nov. 26th, 2019


Do we have any displaced run catering companies?


Darling, how involved are you looking to be in these enterprises?


How is my darling little Jake doing?

Tandy's 17th birthday is on the 16th, and she's requested a dinner in New Orleans to celebrate. I've arranged transportation at 5:45pm, with dinner at 6:00pm. We would love if if you could join us! Please let me know if you can attend.

ooc: please assume this came with more warning. SORRY <3. Also if I missed any of Tandy's friends please let me know.

Anyone teach sword fighting around here? And who is good with werewolf lore?

Liv, I have something important to ask you that I've been putting off since I got here.

What's the last thing you remember about home?


Desiccation of faeries feels like a reasonable response the next time I run into faeries on that level of asshole.

None of us think going to this ball is a good idea, right?

All I really want to do today is go somewhere I can be served a decent cup of tea and some kind of small baked good and people watch. The best I've managed to do here is a teabag and hot water.

I'm considering adding a Quidditch strategy class to the Pit schedule. Would any of you Quidditch-minded folk be interested in that? If so, what time would be good for you to attend it?

It would be mainly a course taught in a classroom, though we could get up on brooms and demonstrate sometimes.

Unfortunately, thanks to the portal, your teammate Fleur Weasley has gone home. I'm afraid this is going to be the nature of these teams, with people coming and going.

Thankfully, we have some alternates who can fill in. Please welcome Arthur Weasley as your new Chaser!

How do you feel about the 8th for New York? I can get us tickets for Hamilton right now if that works for you. The 15th also seems doable on the ticket front.

Thank you for the plants, Fray. I like mine immensely. What does yours look like?

When do you think you'll have a spare few hours?

When you were in the hotel, you got memory updates, didn't you?

Hey Portal, if you want to kidnap quality people - Matt Donovan. Tall, blond, ridiculously nice to a fault. I'd also like Glenn back, thanks, so if you'd stop being an asshole about that, that would be gre- ETA: Dominique Weasley too, asshole.

And Murder Truck Tacos will be parked up by Carpe Noctem this evening. Bring your drunken asses over and give me money when you're done clubbing, thanks.


I never realized quite how expensive school books were because I guess you don't have to buy them in high school. This is the true pain of university, I think. Just [...] so expensive. I mean, the classes themselves are expensive, but then the books. I can't help but think of my dad's face if he knew how much.

Aug. 11th, 2018


Well, interdimensional travel's sure a new one. Please tell me there's a bar somewhere here, I could use some bourbon.

And on the off chance — hey, Bennett. Figure out a way to get me the hell back home, would you?

Attention, attention!

Some of you are aware that Eliot Waugh's birthday is this weekend. It's kind of a big deal, and he really enjoys being the center of attention. So let's give that to him with a big party at the Cottage on Sunday. It'll start in the afternoon with BBQ and just hanging out and go on into the night where things will likely get a little raunchy. If you're coming with children, maybe stick to the daytime festivities.

Anyone who would like to assist in the BBQing and setting up would be greatly appreciated.

See you there! (Recommended that you don't arrive before noon. Some of us don't bother getting dressed until then.)

Aug. 6th, 2018


WHO: Alucard Emery, Rhy Maresh, & anyone who was invited to his party (even if you didn't respond you can still come! Unless you're on the Party Pooper list).
WHAT: Alucard's 24th or 31st birthday, depending on how you look at it
WHEN: Tuesday, August 7, 1 PM - 5 PM
WHERE: Maresh Palace, hosted mainly on a large outdoor balcony.
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 )


You know, I'm pretty sure we were going to try for an upgrade from Texas, weren't we, my fellow Displaced? I'm not even picky this time. But I'm pretty sure we could manage closer to the ocean. Less heat. Infinitely less tumbleweed.

Though I'm liking the whole 48 hours being reduced to 4. Wondering if already having the vaccines cancels out getting them again though...

Can I get some crayons and paper though? 4 hours is still insanely long for three year olds.

Sooo... any chance I still have my job?

And I need a couple of enrollment packets.

Both of these cats decided to stare me down defiantly, then one after the other, even though I said 'no' proceeded to knock a small vase and a bottle of hand cream off my dresser.

Cats really are jerks.


I would like to invite all of you to a gathering for Alucard's birthday, next Tuesday August 7th, from 1pm to 5pm. There will be lunch provided, as well as wine and cake, and music and good company.

There is no requirement to bring anything except your lovely selves, but if you would like to get him a present and are looking for ideas, feel free to ask me. Again, please don't feel obligated. Your company would be the best gift.

I would like to order a birthday cake from your bakery. I will need it on August 7th, around midday. Do you deliver? Otherwise, I can plan to pick it up. I will, of course, pay you for both the cake and any delivery fee if that is something you offer.

I have a proposition for you. Would either or both of you be willing to do a performance at Alucard's birthday party? He very much enjoys your music. I would be happy to pay you.

» Hello, this is Rhy. I have a proposition for you, if you have a moment.

*OOC: if you have had a good conversation/interaction with Alucard at any point, consider yourself on this list, unless you have made Rhy's list of Party Poopers: Holland, Michael, 12th Doctor/River Song, Jarvis. Don't worry, guys, you'll still probably get invited to the next one he throws for all the Displaced (except Holland, Holland is permanently banned)

I'm sure there will be very polarized thoughts about this.

Now that I'm more settled and know how to write on this thing, it is time that I find a job. I'm completely unsure of the types of jobs that they have these days. Most people I know work with their hands.

I'm very good with fighting and magic, all of which is nature based. I can transform into pretty much anything I desire, if that helps. Oh and at home I ran a bakery with my friends Vex and Pike, so I can do that too. Is there anything like that to do?

If anyone has any tips on how to combat loneliness, I would be happy to hear it. This is the longest I've ever been without at least one of my friends.

Any magic users here that are healers?

No emergency. It's an area of my own skill set I'm looking to improve, and I'm wondering if talking to healers might be beneficial if I could potentially find some similarities or crossovers between our magic.

Wakanda's place of residence has security measures. Please, for your safety, avoid including it in your pranks.

The Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority has been having some difficulty enforcing their anti-poaching measures, due to a particularly terrible group of poachers. The Zambezi Elephant is in danger, as a result.

Would any of you care to join me to find a solution? This one will be a little more...active than the last project we were on. Margo, I included you because you mentioned you were interested in doing something more with your summer.

[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.)

Any experienced bakers in need of a job? My demand has grown just enough at Once Upon a Pie that I'll need someone at a part time level, at the very least.

Additionally, half off magical items through the 4th. I recommend stocking up while prices are low.

I had something of a conversation with one of my friends. I could not entirely characterize it as something that went well. But it went. It was a start. It is striking how one's thoughts sound outside of one's head, instead of inside it. Their character changes, or rather, perhaps it's my view of them that shifts.

Texas felt much more welcoming in winter. With all this heat, the evenings and nights are better than the days.

So I need your help. I'm going to propose to Gabby and I need to get everything arranged by end of the month because I'm proposing to her next Friday at Disney.

Oh. And I need to rent a white horse.

And put together costumes.


Hey, I'm Tyler. We haven't really talked, but we should probably change that soon because I'm kind of doing this thing where I'm going to be proposing to her next week.

It seems like only a few weeks ago I was barely sixteen, but at the same time it's been two years since then. It is extremely strange. But the important point is that I'm now 18 and no longer require a guardian, though I suppose I'll continue to put up with him regardless.

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?

I have never met a crueler portal.

Murder Taco Truck came through and I can't have any of it. :|


We've been having a strange bout of weather as of late, but I hope this evening stays relatively free of any storms.

If anyone wishes to drop by the backyard this evening, I will be having a braai. I am thinking sosaties and springbok loin, but am willing to take requests.

You have been very quiet since that night as of late.

I came into a bit of money, courtesy of the portal. The school year is over next month and I was hoping to use this money to take some time away from Tumbleweed with you, this summer. We can go anywhere you like, see or do whatever you want. What do you think?

May. 18th, 2018


Some people take their candles very, very seriously in this town. I just watched one woman debate over two for almost half an hour. Some teenagers are also terrifying with what they hope magic will fix.

Should have finished University years ago. At least this is providing motivation.
