This might be a strange and fascinating event, and I fully intend to investigate. However, this is also a chance to take an unexpected vacation and I'm taking full advantage. Who's up for drinks at the pool?


Evidently, I won't be allowed to cook here. Everyone is getting more jumpers.


Stating the obvious aside: we've made another jump. Some of you remember (and would like to forget) the Prettiest Star space cruise ship. This one is on water this time. From what I can tell, it's a luxury cruise ship. Most of what I've seen seems familiar to cruise ships on Earth, but who knows so make sure you're careful until we know exactly what we're dealing with.

Check in on this post and see if your friends are here.

I didn't know what I was getting into when Sherlock suggested we watch the DVDs of 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes'. Admittedly nervous and a little embarrassed at first, I never really expected to actually enjoy the episodes. They were very well produced, and the stories are similar enough to what we experienced in our universe to be recognizable, but the differences were fascinating and even entertaining. The actor who played the lead, Jeremy Brett, has such energy that his portrayal reminded me of my own Sherlock. Especially how sexy he gets when he's working on an investigation. I can't say I like David Burke's mustache, but besides that detail, watching somebody who is supposed to be me in another universe wasn't as disturbing as I thought it would. I'm not sure if I'd ever want to watch the show that actually depicts our lives back home, though. Has anybody here done that before?

The exciting outcome of watching the DVDs is that it's inspired Sherlock to take up detective work again. Since he got here, he'd been working strictly as a lab assistant at the college, while I work as a doctor at the local hospital, which is all and well but nowhere as fulfilling as detective work. Since Christmas, we've already picked up two cases, - frankly ones that Sherlock would've likely dismissed as boring back home, but here received with gusto. And since we're going back on cases, I'll be updating my blog again.

With the land rover that Santa brought me for Christmas, we're looking forward to picking up more cases outside of Tumbleweed.

Got me a job here in town at the police department. Told them I could get around just as well as anybody else on the force, but they stuck me behind a desk. Call it a 'disability'. Hell, I used to go toe to toe with Dark Wizards back home without my leg, these Muggle criminals in Tumbleweed ain't nothing. Got to wear an eye patch so I don't freak out the locals, which don't make any difference to me. Wonder what they'd think about my so-called disability if they knew I could see through walls? Shit, I'd be the best damn surveillance office in Texas, if not the world.

Thank you everybody for making this a very happy holiday season. I don't think I've ever had a Christmas quite as nice this, even before became a sorcerer.

[Private to All Magic Users in Tumbleweed]
Holidays are over, it's time to get down to business. I've been considering this for a while, and I'd like to begin the New Year with a proposition. I've mentioned this to a few people already, and have had positive feedback, so I want to make it official.

It would be to all of our advantages if we magic-users formed a coalition. Our goals would primarily be ready to step up to help in case of emergencies, especially if they're of a magical nature; to educate one another about our difference styles of magic, and to educate others who might be interested in taking up magic; to pool our resources in times of need, be they magical items or books; to assist one another in our different paths.

I am offering the Sanctum Sanctorum as the coalition's base of operations, unless anybody else would care to make another suggestion.

Ideally, I'd like to find a sponsor to help fund what we're doing. The coalition should be independent, especially from the military who might place certain restrictions upon us.

If you are interested in joining such a coalition, please comment below.

There are some individuals who, while not strictly magic users, are knowledgeable and accustomed to fighting against magical dangers, such as demons and the like, and would be good to have on our side. Specifically, I'm thinking of Sam Winchester, Integra, and Alucard, but if anybody has other suggestions, I'm like to hear them.

Helena has requested that I show everyone her spaceship. Clara? Doctor? Evidently you're invited for tea.

We now officially have fourteen brooms ready for the Pitch. They were delivered on Christmas Eve. I'll be passing them onto my Uncle's for use in the pit but I figured there were a few individuals waiting to hear about them.

Thank you.

At least this alternate dimension has a nice waiting room.

If you're expecting me to buy you a present, you're going to be disappointed. Never been good at picking shit out for other people, and I ain't going to start trying. Unless you want laundry detergent or air fresheners in your stockings. Before anybody starts accusing me of having a crappy holiday attitude, don't bother because I don't care.

Of course, where I'm from the Christmases isn't as festive as they are here. Dumbledore tried, reckoned it would boost morale, and it was easy enough to cut down a tree and decorate it with ornaments that were already in storage. But rationing made it so Hogwarts feasts weren't nowhere as opulent as before, and with each passing year it got tighter. If you got a present, it was usually food or something home made. The school had become a refugee camp, so it was hard to get into the spirit when you'd been driven out of your home and / or the faces of your loved ones were gnawed off by zombies. Times like that is when you really appreciate what you have, along with those people around you. Too bad there ain't a way to send stuff to those that are still there.

OI. Those of you that showed interest in Quidditch and need to learn how to fly meet me at the pit. Today. 5 PM. We need to make sure you lot aren't going to be crashing into each other during games because you don't know the basics. Because as wholly entertaining as that would be, that'd be an entirely different kind of sport than Quidditch.

The following have shown interest in some sort of game league going on. If you have interest, speak up, so I know who to send try out invites to when we get this up and running.

Potential Participants )


So who do I talk to about getting a job in security here? I figure that will be best for me and I really should be getting a job.

Okay. So. As you have probably noticed by now, shopping in Tumbleweed for formal clothes is AWFUL. But finals are in like three weeks so you know studying and stuff. SO.

Teleporting Calendar:

Sunday: I can get you anywhere in the world for $50. Any time. You name it.
Monday-Friday: Before or after school departure times. Text me when you need to get back. $50.
Saturday: I can get you anywhere in the world for $50. Any time. You name it
Sunday of the ball: $100 cause wow are you cutting it close.


I've been thinking a lot about birth dates, especially considering that the yearly calendar here doesn't align with the one where I'm from. For those of you who are in a similar position and have chosen a date here with this calendar, how did you decide on it? I suppose the most natural inclination would be for me to choose the date on which I arrived here.

I realized this morning that I arrived here exactly one year ago today.

This is a catastrophic breech of the International Statute of Secrecy. Is MACUSA aware of what's going on?

Minister Shacklebolt will come to know about this!

Nov. 20th, 2017


I can't be the only one missing when we used to actually get all the new releases.

Before we went to space there were teasers for Wonder Woman and the new Spider-man and now nothing. And Justice League and Thor were supposed to be out this year and NOTHING.

And no new rumors on the Gambit movie.

It's like the death of nerdom.

I miss new comics.

Helena is under the impression that we are having a Thanksgiving dinner. I picked her up from school today and overheard her telling one of her chums that she was so excited because "everyone is in town."

We need to pull together a Thanksgiving dinner. My child has expectations and I don't have the heart to tell her 'no.'

I've done some research and there seems to be a few restaurants that cater for Thanksgiving. I need to call them as soon as possible with a headcount so [...] this is me asking for a headcount.

And praying we can fit everyone into my flat. We'll expand out the dining room, of course, and it should be fine.

Do you two have plans for Thursday? I'm going to have to host an American Thanksgiving. Helena expects it.

So they're telling me this isn't a portkey malfunction, and I gotta say that the bloody States would be quite a portkey malfunction and I'd be lucky to be in one piece but I swear the portkey office is more inept than it used to be, and this isn't France.


But also they're saying Bill's here. So. Bill Weasley, are you here? I thought you were in France. What are you doing here? And what have you done with the twins? Uncle Gideon's gonna tan your hide if you've misplaced them.

Nov. 14th, 2017


Emmeline has already filled me in on why I am in quarantine. There is no need to explain that part to me any further.


What is all this? Who brought me here? I NEED TO GET HOME TO MY CHILDREN.

I have a four month old at home and she needs her mother.


Hey, I just wanted to give you all a heads up that Molly just arrived. She's quite young too, I'm guessing she's from shortly after she had Ginny because she mentioned her infant daughter.

She'll probably write something here soon, but figured I'd give you all a warning first.

Nov. 8th, 2017


Well fuck that turned into an interesting night. The Bonfire was good though.

Thanks for organising it. It was fun despite the ending.

HP Crew
So. I think I might have come across cold and disinterested to some of you. I kind of can be brusque for those who don't know me. I do want to get to know you guys though. So. Drinks and a get together this weekend at mine?

Nov. 7th, 2017


Wow, an alternate reality Earth! This is so cool! Hello, Earthlings!

Also, kudos on this network, by the way. This thing does not crack easy.

My place still has quite a few rooms left if anybody's looking for a place to stay.

For those who don't know, my place is about five stories. All the floors have their own kitchen and living room, plus 2 or 3 bedrooms. There's a lower ground level with a garden outside, and then the four floors above that. It's really like having your own apartment with some neighbors above and below you. I'm on the top floor.

Hey, mate. How you liking the apartment? Everything alright?

Everything going alright for you, lass? Let me know if you need anything.

Hey, you. How are you doing?

Bonfire night!

WHO: Anyone going to Bonfire Night!
WHEN: Tonight!
WHERE: The Aerie.
WHAT: What starts out as Bonfire Night turns into well, we have Gremlins running around, guys. You do the math.
TRIGGERS: Probably killing gremlins, and it's kind of gross.



On Friday, I commented on a young lady's network post and heartlessly called her an 'idiot'. I sincerely apologize for my action. I allowed my temper to get the better of me, and promise to be more vigilant about what I write.

[Private to the Displaced Adults]
However, I stand by my concern for the Displaced underage youth. I understand they are required to have guardians when they arrive. How much supervision are they given? Tumblewood is turbulent and dangerous, and while I understand some of the youth have powers and may even be able to defend themselves, they are still children.


My name's Harry Potter and I'm looking for anyone who might know me. I could use a visit. If we're allowed visitors. If not, I'd like a crossword puzzle.

Nov. 3rd, 2017


Hello? Anyone there? Bruce? Alfred? Dick? Damian?

I know they explained it all and said I've got to stay in quarantine, but this is pretty crazy. And why did they give me a Mogwai to keep me company? Don't get me wrong, he's pretty cute. But seriously?

Nov. 1st, 2017


I wonder how Newt Scamander would react to one of these little creatures.


IT'S ADORABLE! I'm going to name it Alastor!

[John Allerdyce]

Did you see the bonfire has a place now? Are you going to go?


Attention celebrators of Bonfire Night! I will be hosting Bonfire night at Ronan's farm, and I've been told the go-karts will be running that night as well.

Johnny Storm has graciously agreed to light our bonfire with himself, and I would love it if we had one or two magical types (I'm looking at you Albus) could ensure that the fire itself won't scorch or burn anything in the area. We're not looking to start a brush fire that destroys the town. If there's anyone magical or fireworks-inclined that wouldn't go amiss either.

The only thing missing is a chill in the air and a hot apple cider. (Rest assured there will be beverages and snacks. Volunteers for this would be lovely as well.)


Happy Halloween everyone. Not that I actually ever celebrated it at home, we'd heard of it but it wasn't a thing in England when I was a kid.

Much prefer Guy Fawkes night though. Do we do anything for that here?

Oct. 24th, 2017


Hey. I don't know what kind of plans you have for the 31st, but I want to spend the day with you, if that's okay? Doesn't have to be just us either.

How are you settling in? I'm sorry you're stuck in a situation where people say they know you, but you don't have any idea who they are. It can't be easy.

Oct. 20th, 2017


Are there plans in place for Petunia's birthday? Did you all want to collaborate?

We can host whatever is decided upon here if you'd like. There is plenty of room.

And what would you like to do for yours?

Oct. 14th, 2017


Fall Fun At the Dameron Ranch

What. Fall Festival hosted by Poe, Rey, & Leia
Who. Anyone in Tumbleweed.
Where. The Dameron Ranch
When. Tonight starting around sundown.

Can you exit the corn maze on your own? )


So apparently the real reason I died was because some asshole programmed his phone to make robocalls when the comic book company asked people to vote on whether a fifteen-year-old kid should be murdered or not.

If anybody's looking for me, I'll be at the bar, breaking my own rules about alcohol.

Oct. 6th, 2017


Well fuck. I so didn't expect this, this morning.

Hi I'm Dorcas Meadows. New here and all that shit.
