This isn't cool and today sucks and I need ice cream and a hug. Maybe four hugs.

[Friends & Acquaintances*]
So, I'm in a little bit of a bind. Peggy moved out and today so did Jarvis. I'm still only six inches tall right now so I can't really get around by myself just yet. Anyone got a spare shoebox I can sleep in? Promise I don't take up much space. It's completely temporary, people's curses are lifting every day. I'll promise to be out of your hair as soon as I'm back to my normal height.

*A super broad filter, except it does not include Peggy, Jarvis or Bucky (PH). Why? Bucky (PH) is out of town and Steve isn't entirely sure where Peggy moved out, but he's trying to avoid making anyone feel guilty or awkward. But he's also a total idiot and might be wrong.

[Peggy Carter]
Jarvis moved out with Howard. Howard has extended an invitation for me to stay with him while I'm unable to open doors. I don't like the idea of you moving out. It doesn't sit right with me. You invited me to stay with you when I got here, and I'm grateful for it.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, the place is yours. It should be yours, if you want it. I'll let you know when I can report back to the base. No change yet.

Sep. 22nd, 2018



Jarvis, I need a drink.

Peg, help me out here, will ya?

Steve! How... how friggin many of you are there?

....that's one hell of a smooth process for newcomers. How long has this been happening for them to get it that perfect?!

I HAVE A SON??!!?!??!

So what does everyone use for background noise because it is kind of creepy how silent my dorm is rn.

Sep. 16th, 2018


I never thought I'd say this, but I'm fucking glad to be in Tumbleweed, again.

Kinda wish I still had Ace, though.


So tell me about this Thanos.

Event: Unseelie Court Ball

WHO: The Displaced and a bunch of fairies.
WHEN: From midnight until 6am. Technically early Sunday morning.
WHERE: Another dimension
WHAT: The Unseelie Court invites you to a ball. (Make sure to tag your characters as you add them). Masks arrived shortly after the Abducted were taken the prior night.

Welcome, welcome! )

T minus three weeks until I turn 18!!

Well, 22 days, actually, but whatever. Close enough.

FYI, Avengers fam, I'm not necessarily asking for a huge celebration and everything because I can probably see Sam being a little too distraught and going "why are you growing up, stahp that", but I wouldn't mind a small little celebration at home or anything like that. The very first two months of school are probablyyyyy not a good time to decide to take a vacation to Pakistan or something like that. Plus, um, kind of need cash for that.

HOWEVER! If anyone a. wants to teleport me to Poconos, PA, and b. wants to join me, there's a lantern lighting festival that I always wanted to see but I never got a chance to do because my dad used to think it was a waste of time and "only white people do that". >_>

I need five people — 3 women, 2 men — who are willing to try on a bunch of clothes and accessories and then get your picture taken. That's right! I need models!

I have several items I'm wanting to test how they move on people. Alterations will be necessary so I will need people who can come in multiple times.

Have you guys gotten all your classes yet? What are you going to take?
How do you feel about me maybe working some of my fabrics to get you a couple outfits so you can walk around in the sunlight?

You all suck for not trying to help me out with the bad poetry thing the other day. I'm mad at all of you. There's nothing you can do to make it up to me. No crocodile tears with save you.

Also, why couldn't we have something to fight instead of Toons everywhere? We could have had MONSTERS UNLEASHED or fish people, but noooooooo. Toons.

Aug. 19th, 2018


[backdated to Saturday about 11am]

Okay so I woke up this morning,
and my brain gave out a warning.
Bad poetry's not how I talk,
I much prefer the catwalk.
Someone take off this spell,
I feel like I'm in hell!

I need a safe place to go to ground. The bananas are after me.

Anyone have any job opportunities for former history professors? Looking for something adjacent, but willing to make a move in careers too.

Not Toon wrangling, though. Thanks.

How does America manage to have thousands of television channels and not a single item worth watching? Just how does a vampire entertain himself as the night draws on with nothing to hunt?

Aug. 8th, 2018


I realized that I have not introduced myself, even though I've popped around to various posts. I'm Sergeant Amy Santiago, formerly of the NYPD and currently of the Tumbleweed Sheriff's Department. I arrived almost a month ago and would like to say that I am completely settled here, but that would be a lie. I'm not very good at lying, as Jake can attest, so it better not to ask me questions that you may not want to know my answer to.

I like stationery stores (of which there are none here), TED talks, documentaries, puzzles, and learning new things. I am a Type A personality, which means that I will most definitely get on your nerves so stuff it before I stuff you.

If you see my husband around, I recommend giving him attention, otherwise he will fight harder for it.

Why are there no good stationery or pen stores here?

Jul. 24th, 2018


I recognized the summer is half over, but does anyone know of a place that still might be hiring students for work?

Jul. 19th, 2018


Hey everyone!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you who came out to my birthday party on Tuesday. And here I thought my two best friends in the world, Maria and Daisy, had forgotten all about me and my likes and my idea of fun. I had a blast. I am OFFICIALLY 21 now! I guess it just makes me that much closer in age to my beloved Thor. Not you, you silly thing. The one in my world. (I wouldn't say no to a wing-eating contest though. Think about it.)

I have exciting news!!!!

Van Dyne's is very nearly DONE. I've been totally working on new designs between shifts at the Starbucks at the Tumbleweed Hotel. (Today is Happy Hour! Come by after 3 today and snag a Frappucino for half off. That means you can get TWO for the same price. DOUBLE THE SUGAR!) I may have been enjoying them already.

Ahem. ANYWAY, be on the lookout soon for photos of my designs! I've got swimwear, outerwear, fancy dresses, casual wear, shoes, and costumes on the way.

SOOOOOO...Tuesday. Prepare yourselves. For Jan's birthday party. We'll be hosting it here at the Avengers Academy. Um. So please come to [Address].

It'll be great. 100%.

The heat is unbearable here. It's as if the sun is angry with us.

Is the sun angry with us? Did any of you do something to it?

Should I create thunderstorms? The clouds they bring will give us relief. I'll keep them going for the next few days or until one of the Ororos makes me stop.


For those of you who've just showed up and are attempting to get jobs or those of you who have been here and are still attempting to find a job, I'd like to remind you all that Maria and I (Daisy) have a list of businesses that are hiring in town. Of course, you can start your own business. If you need us to be a reference for a business not already run by one of the Displaced, just let us know. We have numbers ready.

If you want to come in to talk to us in person at the Resettlement Bureau, we can work with that, too.

[OOC: A few hours after this post.]

Hello, my name is Steve Rogers.

Still getting up to speed on everything. I've been reading a lot of internet.

Anything important I need to know? Heard we won the war, so that's a good start. Dem bums win a World Series yet? Still have a couple hours left before I can leave quarantine.


Hello people of Tumbleweed.

I'm Steve Rogers, and I was told I that I should introduce myself on here. And also to not say it exactly in that way.

Jun. 21st, 2018


Okay. I love Disney. I swear, I'm probably having more fun that the kids.

Also ninety-five percent sure that the woman playing Merida was hitting on me, and I was okay with it.

Emma, I owe you a drink or dinner sometime. This trip has been a blast.

Jun. 10th, 2018


I miss Avengers Beach. And vacationing with Loki and making Tony worry about bathing suits and Frost giants and freezing to death.

I really just want a pool. Is that too much to ask?

Jun. 5th, 2018


Never get bored, Google yourself, and read fanfiction written about yourself.

Or do, if that's what you're into.


Any open positions for a cop? Can't provide references but if you go for the material, Avery's prone to getting excited and the "lunatic" thing was just to win a bet.

Hell, I'll even bartend. No experience but I did well enough that one time.

Jun. 3rd, 2018


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.

May. 30th, 2018


So. Who's hiring?

May. 24th, 2018


Well, I know that I never had this when I was home, so I guess the portal is okay giving presents that don't exactly belong to you? At least I have a way to get to and from work now, so that's nice. I need to get a helmet, though.

not an IC cut )

Do you need a little fashion help when it comes to fancy balls?


I've got five slots available for custom-made dresses or suits for the upcoming ball. First come, first serve.

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.

I need a job. I can't just rely on Asami to pay for everything, that's not fair of me.

The problem is, I've never really had a job before. Or at least, not what someone would consider a job here. I don't think Avatar really counts on a resume. There's really no need for a bridge between the human and spirit worlds, here.

I don't even know where to even start.

May. 8th, 2018


It's kind of weird not having Bucky around. I keep expecting him to show up and say something about liking how something has eyes.

The Academy is really quiet, which is also kind of weird. Usually it's full of people and Tony has a tendency to shout things like, "Time to be the best!" or talking about how great the cheese fridge is. Basically it's all weird.

May. 7th, 2018


Well, I've had about two weeks of sitting still on a farm, and while I'm not used to living in less glamor and wealth just yet, I'm mostly grateful I am no longer a queen's servant to be treated as such.

Nonetheless, boredom is starting to sink in so I suppose I should be doing something to keep myself busy and making sure I'm helping the newlyweds here with their expenses. What sort of job is around here for a Grisha to blend in and not look completely out of place with apparent scars and an eyepatch with a particular talent in changing people's physical features or poisoning them?

May. 1st, 2018


Anyone else have their Pokemon evolve on them yet?

Because this happened to me today:

I looked it up online, and apparently, Riolu evolves into Lucario with a strong friendship. I mean, I guess that's what happened. Ace very rarely leaves my side.

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?

It's World Penguin Day tomorrow. I don't actually have that on my calendar, I just saw this floating around.

I'd paste a Delibird on there too but I've only spent ten minutes at home today and it sounds like too much effort.

Apr. 22nd, 2018


Right so, I ain’t sure when we’ll be actually needing this, but I’ve gone and set up an emergency location for the Displaced for whenever shit hits the fan and we can’t go staying here in Tumbleweed. While I’d really like something like those bracelets we all had on the cruise for teleporting everyone no matter where they might be to be around for use, they just ain’t. Hit me up if’n ya think you can make something like that.

I’ve been working to finish adding up housing options and gotten some people to help limit the path of the local fauna that might’ve caused us all some issues if they were allowed to run around everywhere. It runs on solar power and backup generators. Wind power is getting installed soon once I figure out where would be best to go setting it up. There’s a greenhouse that’s already up and running and livestock are getting settled in this week.

[Pretend there's some pictures inserted here for everyone to see.]

So if’n you’re wanting access to it, what you’re gonna need is a portal set up in your house or your place of business (if its Displaced owned). Put your name down here if ya want in and we’ll get ya set up. Just like on the cruise, only the Displaced will be able to head through them there and back.

Hopefully it won't need to be used, but better to have something in place than not.

Apr. 17th, 2018


I thought it was supposed to be more back to the quiet side of things after we got back. I'm guessing that it's going to be closer to what's going on at the school. It's kind of nice to have my room here. Especially since it's And having work is nice, too.

Maria, do you think it's too late to apply for the Fall semester? Also what am I supposed to study here? Apparently Inhuman Biology is not part of any curriculum.

I just found this Pokemon. I'm not sure if it's a girl or a boy, but [...] it's cute anyway.

Apr. 5th, 2018


I've got two of these key ring creatures if anyone wants one of 'em. Or both. Either way.

ETA: I'll trade for a fire pokemon.

Where to next?

Apr. 4th, 2018


I wish there was time to actually do the island challenge. I feel like that could be a lot of fun.

Because I want to be the very best, like no one ever was.

Apr. 3rd, 2018


You know how you used to watch a movie or a TV show and you really identified with someone in it? I never thought I'd actually get to meet that person or become really good friends with them so I consider myself really lucky to have gotten a chance to know Violet Parr. I'm also really glad that she gets to go back to her family because I don't know if I could take her. I hope everyone who d — gets to go home

I'm going to miss you, Vi.

I have put together a report on the attack for review with suggestions for improvement and some of my own observations regarding what happened. Please take from it what you will. If you need anything further or additional clarification, just ask for my assistant Janet. She’s very helpful.

[Attached is about a 700 page PDF. It is an incredibly detailed but very technical, dry report of the attack. There are suggestions for improving escape routes, safety procedures, patrols, etc. But in addition to having a fairly accurate summary of the events of the fight, the report finds that nothing further could have been done to prevent the deaths of the two deceased and out of several thousand simulations run of the attack, it could have very easily been far worse. The report concludes that the number of deaths and injuries being as few as they were are a testiment to the skill, teamwork and dedication to those on the ship.]

does anyone got paper?

is there anything i can bring by?
