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. 23rd, 2018


It's just occurred to me that by the calendar here in Tumbleweed, the me back home must be up to her eyeballs in the Quidditch World Cup. It's quite unfair for it to be a world cup year without getting to enjoy one. That's two I've missed by being here. And before you say anything, no, the football one most definitely does not count. How anyone could find it entertaining to watch a bunch of blokes fall over whingeing for two hours is beyond me.

Any other Muggle sports one of you lot wants to try to sell me on?

Napoleon, since you insist on following me everywhere I go with this international marketing campaign, some thoughts:

1. I'm pretty sure Gillette paid for that mustache.
2. If you can punch the air and make that noise I will pay you five whole dollars per fist to see it.

Edit: If you would like to see Napoleon attempt to punch the air and make sound effect noises, ten dollar minimum buy in. Proceeds go to a local no kill animal shelter. Comment to leave your pledge.


I'm having a moment of Holy Crap, I Did Not Know Something In Texas Other Than Pride Parade Could Bring This Many People Into Town. Though, to be honest, this is my first time ever being in Tumbleweed. I've only ever visited Houston before this.

The bright side: more tourists means more customers at the Bronze and more money coming our way!

Jul. 10th, 2018


Well, Fleur, it looks like France is moving forward! I'm going to be obsessively checking the England vs. Croatia match tomorrow. Merlin save me. I'm sorry to those in Record-Keeping that have to put up with my potential loudness and my general 'Please win, England' emotions. I'm sort of looking forward to France vs England if we win.

In other, non-football related news. I'm trying to put together a weekend hike somewhere maybe a little cooler than here. I haven't figured out the where yet, but if anyone wants to come, let me know!

ETA: Alternatively, if anyone wants to start up Quidditch teams, I feel like we might have a good time of it and I've been told I'll get a glittery sign if I play, so I may have ulterior motives.

Jun. 20th, 2018


For some reason knowing the woman who played me on television just became a Tony Award Winning Producer is making me overly nostalgic for when random song and dance break outs were typical.

I need to go to go see Once On This Island.

Jun. 13th, 2018


So not only can this portal place people outside their own homes it can also do so cross dimensionally, and from what I was told also neutralizes powers? Not to mention the fact that you seem to be pushed from the room that holds it itself, there's also a computer attached that somehow knows your name? I can't believe I'm even saying this, but I have no idea, which is crazy as I always have some idea. I'd love to hear more theories about this, and what has been discovered so far. Like is it just the building, and how? And what's powering this thing, if anything?

Oh and if anyone's seen my husband or my son please do send them over. None of my capsules seem to have come through with me so me and Bulla will need a lift home. Which is also here, somehow, and I'd like to hear theories about that too.

Jun. 12th, 2018


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.

[Friends outside of the Harry Potter World]
That awkward moment when a guy that was trying to date you leaves and when he comes back, he's 15 and from an entirely different version of your world.

So that's something. Something I am avoiding the fuck out of.

So after sleeping for a solid 16 hours I started digging around on the internet. And found movies.

That probably sounds sketchy.

I found movies that include parts of my life.

It turns out my life is an alternate ending. So that's... cool. I guess. Not really.

Is this normal? Does this sort of thing exist for everyone?

Jun. 2nd, 2018


Perhaps we ought to have more formal occasions in this community. I do so enjoy the view, and I have always been a fan of late nights.

May. 25th, 2018


So I have my broom finally, which is nice. It will save on my broom rental costs. I'll probably have to be careful about where I fly it, but at least it's there to fly. I don't really know what to say about I And it's not a co-parenting situation It's a shame that I can't use it to get to and from work and that apparating isn't really the go-to way to get around either. But I guess cabs aren't too bad as an alternative.

If anyone wants to go flying with me, I'm totally ready to find somewhere secluded for it.

May. 21st, 2018


[Filtered to Harry Potter]
A day or so late, but I'm over being drunk now.

[Filtered to Jake Stone]
Is that offer for help with history still open? I needed a break, so I switched to maths, but now I'm trying to figure out the world wars and I have no idea who the majority of the important figures they are discussing are, so I feel like I'm not fully understanding something.

Also it feels like information overload at this moment, so it's possible I just need to decompress and come back to it.

May. 19th, 2018


Hello, hungover. I haven't seen you in awhile.

Anyone want to go get breakfast? I could use some extremely greasy food and strong coffee right about now.


Magic is wonderful and I wish I hadn't had those last two drinks. If Marietta was here, she would take my phone. Instead, I am by myself talking to my goldfish. He's not a very good conversationalist, but I guess it could be worse am still a little more drunk than I meant to be. But I had fun tonight, so no regrets or whatever is the saying.

May. 17th, 2018


I need an expert in clothes to assist me - particularly, jeans.

Gaby, come dancing with me on Friday? Rogue's organizing, but a group of us are going to NYC to find a club to our liking. Illya, you're welcome to come along as well, but I will be stealing Gaby away from you for the night if she'll let me.

I haven't seen much of you on the network, but a few of us are going to New York City this Friday for a night out in the clubs, organized by your sister. Care to join us? Quentin will be there as well.

May. 16th, 2018


I know people are a lil all over the place because of the whole power swap thing that's happened to some, but is anyone up for heading to NYC this Friday to go dancing?

If you're worried about powers going outta control my offer to help with that still stands.

So Friday. NYC. Dancing. Who's in?

May. 13th, 2018


Okay, so someone has to have my Spider powers, right? Does anyone have a strange gland that appeared on the inside of your wrist? If you press it some weird goop sort of oozes out of it. Unless you press really hard, then it's like a spider web?

Noticed some mild panic today.

We're all good, right?

Something bad has happened. My head's messed up.

May. 4th, 2018


Thank Merlin for magic. Otherwise I'm pretty sure I'd be in a near constant state of feeling ill because of this heat. It's never this warm in England. The sunscreen is also very useful. I'd really rather not have to torture myself with long sleeves and trousers to avoid the sun, so this helps.

Apr. 29th, 2018


I realize it is a school night and I will probably regret this when I have to be up in the morning, but who else can't sleep? Anyone want to Netflix & Chill? Did I use that right?

Additionally, we should probably discuss the timeline for our heist.

Apr. 26th, 2018


I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who helped during these last few weeks while the Resettlement Bureau was getting on its feet. The primary goal of the organization is simple: greet new arrivals and set them up with what they'll need to get on their feet here. That means paperwork, helping them acclimate to Tumbleweed and Earth, finding their housing. The secondary goal is to study the portal, to see if there is a way we can figure out its agenda, where it came from, how to stop certain creatures from coming through or at the least, being prepared when they do.

These are now paid positions. If you were volunteering before, just come see me if you want to transition to paid.

You can see how outlook and agenda here.

Our open positions are as follows, and yes, they do come with health benefits. [OOC NOTE: If you are on here in a position, you'll need to comment here to get the ball ICly rolling, please!]

Tiny, I wanted to thank you for establishing the food bank. I'd like to work directly with you to help those who first arrive who won't have a paycheck for a week or so. The Resettlement Bureau can help, but you've already got that in place and it would help foster relations with others. Do you have plans to make it an actual charity?

Tony (and Tiny), any ideas on a time frame for the reactor?

I almost wonder if it would be less disconcerting if the outside of my house looked not remotely like it does at home. As it is, I'm still startled every time I walk outside and it looks like it, but not like it.

[Filter: Remus]
What do you do for a job? Obviously any sort of potions business may be a bit of time in getting set up.

Apr. 24th, 2018


Kind of nice, having routine again.

Searching for A+ distractions from life in Small Town, Texas. Now taking ideas or distractions. Please & thanks.

Apr. 10th, 2018


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.

[Friends and Family of Wally West*]
Have any of you seen Wally? I went over to ask if he wanted to join us in Poke-land but he isn't answering.

I hope he hasn't run off. I know he was pretty upset when Dick left but I thought he'd be okay. That it was just shock. This doesn't look good.

[OOC: If you had said more than 5 words to Wally, you're friends/family]

I knew I had this somewhere. Pokedex, Alola edition.

[ooc: A limited version of the Pokedex that doesn't include exact location data, just the island groupings]

I doubt we'll be able to catch all of those. The first nine are the starters and their evolutions and in the game you can only choose one set of those. At the end of the list are legendaries and they're incredibly difficult to find and catch. I'd assume we can rule any of those out. The rest, I don't know.

For everyone who doesn't have a clue what we're going on about, Pokemon are... in some ways an equivalent to animals, but broader than that. I think the game concept actually came from insect collecting. The idea of the games is to try to collect every kind of Pokemon by catching wild ones, evolving the ones you have through training and using items, and trading with other people. You can also put Pokemon in battles against other trainers, which sounds like those underground dog fighting rings but supposedly Pokemon enjoy it and it's definitely a lot more regulated. A Pokemon can only know four skills, fights end when one is knocked out, and they're easy to heal at Pokecenters which are free for trainers to use and located in almost every town and city. As well as fighting there are other things like beauty and talent shows, so it's not all horribly violent. The different types partly determine what they're strong and weak against in battles and also to some extent where you can find them. Water Pokemon, obviously you'll want to look in the sea, rivers, lakes. Rock Pokemon in the mountains, grass Pokemon in fields, fire Pokemon I'd probably head to the volcano.

Or you can just ignore the Pokemon and do the standard tourist-y things like the dinosaur park and resort.


What exactly is a pokemon?

I don't know what to At least there's still ice cream I think I need a vacation from my vacation.

[OOC: Not too long after Quake's shaking of the ship, the lights flicker on and off several times. Sorry for the false hope. Power is not restored, Kobik's throwing a tantrum.]

So I have what may end up being a fantastic idea!

Let's put on a Rocky Horror Picture show live action thingamajig. Janet is Janet, but the other parts are up for grabs. If we want to do rehearsals or whatevs, maybe we can start scheduling that next week?

Who's in? Who wants to handle putting this together?

Well, last night was certainly an ego boost. I may have to dress up more often. Maybe not quite as fancy as last night, but we’ll see.

Who's in need for a date to this ball? Comment here with your name, your romantic preferences, a few of your likes, maybe your age bracket, and let's see what we can do about getting you a date.

Mar. 10th, 2018


I think I'm going to miss it here just a little bit once we're gone. It's definitely been an experience.

Mar. 6th, 2018


Ginny's gone. I'm sorry.

Feb. 24th, 2018


Right. How bloody much did I drink last night?
George, if this is one of your jokes, I'm not sure if I want to congratulate you or hex you. Possibly both.

Feb. 22nd, 2018


As much fun as camping has been and the amazing company I had, indoor plumbing has been a blessing and it feels very good to be clean shaven again.

What has been everyone's favorite thing about this stop? Any recommendations I have to try before we leave?


(001) Severus Snape

I suppose it is too much to ask that there is a non-headache inducing explanation to all this.

Optional* Magic** Survey***

*As in, please don't bother messaging me if it's secretive and you don't want to discuss. Just don't discuss? That's fine.

**Replying to say you have no magical ability or contact with magic where you're from is equally unnecessary.

***Feel free to respond publicly or privately. Private answers will be held in confidence.

1. Do you have the capability to use magic or regularly come into contact with magic? Is there a title you prefer like wizard, magician, psychic, etc?

2. How would you describe the nature of your abilities? For example, is it over a specific element, do you have a particular discipline or scope?

3. How do you manifest your magical abilities? For example, do you use a wand, hand gestures, spoken word, magical texts, spell ingredients, a combination, or none of the above?

4. Are you willing to share your magical knowledge or be called upon to come to someone's aid? Do you have limitations to how much help you're willing to provide or information willing to share?

5. Is there any interest in forming a group, council or coven to continue this conversation?

Thank you for your time.

Feb. 16th, 2018


Okay. I need people to come with me so I don't have to drink alone and feel incredibly sad. I was going to try to make this sound less sad, but at this point, I'm pretty sure there was no point I am excellent company. The more the merrier. Please

Day 2, no Orlando Bloom.

Feb. 10th, 2018


I honestly have no idea how I'm supposed to feel about this. I gather this is something exciting, though? It seems interesting at any rate since this isn't something that I know, which means exploring places that I've never heard of.

Harry, I might steal your broom to see things from up above if you mind.

Feb. 6th, 2018


I keep wondering what it would be like to fly over the water now that we're here. I don't have my broom, I haven't for a long time, but I've been thinking about it recently. I think my best friend would have liked being on a cruise ship. I wish she was here

On another note: does anyone want to come with me to the rock climbing wall?

Anyone know how fast you can go on the jogging track?
