[Private to Peggy Carter, Natasha Romanoff, Ianto Jones]
Fort Neill Resettlement Bureau Management,

It is with regret that I turn in my two week notice of resignation as receptionist. I shall place an advertisement over the Network for the position, and will gladly train the replacement. Thank you very much for the opportunity to work with you, the experience was amazing.

[Private to Nadia Van Dyne]
Effective immediately, I shall be resuming my former duties as Mr Stark's butler. I've given the Resettlement Bureau my two week's notice, and shall be moving into Mr. Stark's mansion. Mr Stark has been told that I am your guardian, and is perfectly alright with you moving in, as well. It will be a bit of an adjustment, especially for the next couple of weeks, but I do not intend to shirk my responsibility to you.

Mycroft is still in a spell-induced sleep in one of my guest bedrooms over a week after the ball. Having no experience with faeries, how long might we expect these spells to last? Has anyone found anything other than time and patience that might break it?

Lieutenant Colonel Rhodey, or shall I say War Machine, requested that I contact you. I've expressed interest in learning how to fly modern aircraft, and was told you were the person to reach.

Bonne anniversaire, mamours. Though we had some very rude and uninvited guests, I consider one year ago today one of the happiest of my life, because I was able to marry my best friend.

And also, we looked so stunning.

I was thinking of how we have not had a honeymoon. Since this world is so blissfully Death Eater free, I think we should take advantage and remedy this travesty soon.

So this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night

In all realness, I'm sorry for letting the rest of my shit boil up and taking it out on you. I'm coming back tonight. Is that okay with you?

Human traffickers. A group operating out of Nova Scotia. Why Nova Scotia? Guess we're going to find out, but they're trading Americans, so that's why they're getting us involved.

Riggs, Echo, Lance. I want you three out there to gather intel. Flights have been booked for you to go out tomorrow night and you can pick up your IDs for this mission at the Facility anytime tomorrow morning. I'll send you what we already have, but your goals are the following: find out where they are holding those that we're trying to rescue, find out how big of a ring this is, call for backup if you need it, go in and leave the bad guys in a position to be arrested, and save the victims. Standard stuff.

Who is available to work comms? Shifts of ten hours until the mission is done.

It's always been part of the Xavier school to teach us how to use our powers — either to make sure we don't hurt people or that we can protect people. We haven't really been doing that here. That doesn't seem to be an option anymore. There's the whole thing where portals keep opening up over the town and now across the world, and when that happens our children may get separated or want to contribute when we get attacked by krakens and robots and giant spiders and pirates.

During the course of the year, we've been asked to offer defense and survival classes. We've taken this to heart and starting next fall, we will officially be offering those courses. That doesn't help during the summer, so with that said, the Ellie Phimister School is offering a summer program to those 18 and under, Monday through Friday, which will focus on physical fitness, first aid, combat, and survival basics in new environments each week. The classes will start July 2 and end on August 17. They are not mandatory, and students can arrive or leave when suits their (or their guardian's) schedule. This is strictly for those of you who want to learn how best to survive in some of the various situations against some of the potential bad guys who might pop through the portal.

The course will include virtual training in the X-Mansion's Danger Room, under supervision, with field trips as well. Lunch will be provided. The tentative schedule for the course can be found here.

If you'd like to sign up for this program, please contact us on this post. We will need written permission from your guardian, as survival and combat scenarios do have risks. If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the course, please contact us here as well. We will have interviews to find those who are best qualified in a variety of ways.

And as a side note, anyone who would like to have dance lessons over the summer, let me know. Of all ages, not just under 18 year olds. I'll be hosting classes at the school for Beginners, Intermediates, and Advanced dancers. The classes would be twice a week for each. 6-8pm Monday (Beginners), Wednesday (Intermediate), Friday (Advanced). Then 10am-12pm (Advanced), 1-3pm (Intermediate), 3-5pm (Beginners) on Saturday.

Sneaky spy types, roll call.

May I be among those to express my delight at last weekend's ball. It had to be one of the most enjoyable evenings I've had since my arrival through the portal. The catering was marvelous, and in particular the pastries. They were of interest to me because recently I've come across the BBC program, The Great British Baking Show, and I can't get enough! Most of the items I already know how to bake - bread, Victoria sponges, self saucing puddings, even fancy preparations such as Mille-Feuille, but there are a lot of new techniques that are exciting. Since the portal brought over all my baking equipment and supplies, I've considered taking a course.

[Private to Those Who Played Bridge With Edwin at the Ball]
Would any of you be at all interested in getting together on a regular basis for cards? In my experience, the amount of people around nowadays that know how to play bridge is few and far between, what to speak of those who even know what you're talking about. I'd love to host something.

[Private to Peggy Carter]
I have a serious question, and please be brutally honest.
Do you think I'm too effeminate?

[attached here is a picture of this car]

I was looking for a Ford since I had read that it was one of the best, but I suppose the make of your Muggle vehicles matters little compared to the work behind it. But, I have gotten my hands on one at last, and I plan on doing some work on it.

Sidenote, I must say I may never get used to the fact that your old-fashioned method of taking photographs are completely static, but the Muggle way of getting around that is absolutely brilliant!

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.

Did you see the car that the portal gave me?

Do you think that all three of us can fit into it?

Oh, kiss my entire ass, Tumbleweed.

Come and get me so I don't wander into traffic/a bar.

I have never met a crueler portal.

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

I thought I had managed to escape the portal's shenanigans this time around, but then I ended up breaking the bathroom sink by leaning on it a bit too hard. I haven't quite attempted anything else to see what else this might entail. Apologies to anyone who might be missing some extra strength today.

At this dreadful time, may I be of any service to you? I'd like to be of assistance in some way.

Rehab is getting me a volunteer job at the animal shelter. Why didn't they do this earlier? I could have been reading to puppies instead of doing all the crosswords and being bored out of my mind.

Dancing has certainly changed since my era. A pity. It would be nice if there were a dance hall in town.

Is the film Casablanca good? The Tumbleweed calendar says that's what's playing on Movie Night, this coming Monday.

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 couldn't be more delighted to share a residence with Miss Carter in the house Mr Stark gave her. It was rather unexpected to find myself here this morning, but so is everything since the portal collected me. The familiar surroundings make the transition into these very unfamiliar circumstances much easier. Miss Carter's niece, and Miss Martinelli are also living here, and while this may sound unusual, I assure you nothing inappropriate is going on. I am a happily married man.

The pokemon I selected seems to be making her adjustment to Tumbleweed well. Bounsweet It almost sounds French, if you pronounce it just so. Which is why I've named her Fleur. It's appropriate, when you consider she's a flower-type pokemon.

I do wish my wife were here.

[Private to Tony Stark (MUC)]
While, people are discussing the need to get the paperwork of new arrivals in order, my offer as butler still stands. I was pleased to serve your father, and would be even more so to continue serving you.

Apr. 2nd, 2018


This is my first port of call since I've arrived, and I must say I'm excited. The names of the places sound very Hawaiian, however I'm at a loss as to what a Pokemon is.

The robots say I will be discharged by Sunday. I'd really be more comfortable with a healer, or an actual person, to speak to. I remember seeing doctor's when I was in and out of awareness. Are any of you available? The robots make me uncomfortable and I have questions.

Also, could someone bring me chocolate pudding? Please? Or jelly. Green jelly.

What are we doing for Emme?

I may not have unique abilities or super human fighting skills, but there's something I can still do to help

For those who are visiting their friends and family in the medbay, there will be hot tea and light finger foods available. If I can be of any service, please let me know.
