Breq and I would like to invite you all to a holiday fundraiser dinner on December 7th, starting at 5 PM. Because we will also be opening this up to the general public, it will be hosted in the warehouse we have converted into a community center instead of on Station, located at [address].

Tickets will be sold at the door on a sliding scale, and the funds raised will go towards our efforts to provide food, safe spaces, and support in finding housing, jobs, and medical care for those without. Many foods that are considered typical holiday fare on this planet will be provided, and we would love it if anyone also wanted to bring their favorite holiday foods to share. We are still learning about all the Earth cultures, as well as all the cultures you have brought with you, and this is another very helpful way of donating to the cause.

If you're interested in volunteering your time and energy, either at the event or at other times, let myself or Breq know. We would be glad to have your help.

What traditions do you two have for the holiday season?

Belated as it is, we are having a birthday celebration for the love of my life, my dear husband, Rhy Maresh. It is, as ever, a gift to have each other here, and in that spirit everyone is invited. The only gift we ask of you is your company this Saturday, November 16th beginning at 4pm at the beautiful Playa Miramar. A portal will be set up at our residence to take you there, and you are welcome to join us by other means.

There will be food, drinks, and music as late into the night as you wish. If you would like to spend the night or two as well, let us know, and we shall arrange rooms for you.

We hope to see you there.

So, now that Crowley's back, if anyone wants a crash course on how to defend yourself against my world's variety of demons, let me know. Also will do a refresher course for anyone who already knew the drill but hasn't had to think about it in a while. I always have extra holy water, salt, and pictures of devil's traps that you can use as a stencil for putting them anywhere, for anyone who needs them, as well as anti-possession amulets and tattoo designs. I also have the words to an exorcism and a recording of it that you can play on your phone, it works just as well that way.

Most importantly: don't make any deals. Period, end of story. If you run into any kind of trouble with him, please let me know immediately and I'll handle it.




Network Post: Crowley

Hello, boys and girls, and Moose. Name's Crowley. King of Hell. 😈

Get your freaking out or pissing yourselves or impotently threatening me out of your systems while we're not face-to-face. Let's be civil. Have me round for tea or buy me a drink. I promise I won't bite unless I feel like it.

Yo, this is the worst. I was trying to get some free food by pretending there was a fly in it like Pillboi and I used to do, but then I just told them that I put the fly there and I couldn't get free food and I had a fly in my food, so I couldn't eat it. So I had to pay for it and I didn't even get to eat it.

Well. If I do have to be back in Texas, I suppose it's good that my house came with me, again.

Eleanor, darling, are you still here? Michael, are around, as well?

I'm Janet.

I am outside of my parameters. I must speak with my architect and there are too many non-human lifeforms in this area for me to detect which one is him.

It is my absolute pleasure to announce some good news to this community. Rhy Maresh and I, Alucard Emery, are to be married. I look forward to the planning with all its details, to the wondrous day to come, and most of all to all the days that will follow it.

[Private to Team Cockroach]
Yoooo. I pretended I had to pee so these losers would leave me alone. They kept talking to me about weird things that didn't make sense. They just kept using all these big words I didn't understand. I didn't even read this weird story they wrote. Like who has time?

Did we get on a train or something? Is this another Medium Place? :o IS THIS THE REAL BAD PLACE? DID WE GET ABDUCTED BY ALIENS?

Texas is such a dumb place to be. Like nothing even happens here. They don't even do gator hunting season or anything. And what kind of a name is Severed Arm? It's like a 4 out of 10, which is like only second from the worst score for naming.

Thank [insert preferred deity here] I can talk like a normal person again, jeez.

Sorry Michael!

For the record? The Moulin Rouge musical? Can only be described as Spectacular Spectacular. If you can finagle a way to see it, I highly recommend you do.

It sort of makes me wonder if we could pull off the same musical here, in Tumbleweed.

Who wants to watch that Christopher Robin movie with me? It looks cute. And I, for one, wouldn't mind if Winnie happened to come through the Portal at some point. He'd be a super chill, wonderful friend.

Not even gonna lie, but I suck at feelings. So who out there can walk me through how to help out a really depressed and sad demon? Right now we've got cocoa, booze, carbs, cookie dough, and hugs planned.

Sam Winchester, looking at you in particular.

[Filtered away from Janet]
Okay, so some of you might be aware, my BFF in this world, the fabulous Janet, has been reduced from building and running entire worlds (I think) to just hanging out at my place, watch re-runs and not eating pizza.

I need suggestions on what to do with the woman that can basically do everything. Please remember she doesn't eat, drink or sleep.

I really wanna help her find something she can do without just ending up doing stuff for people that don't appreciate her again.

[Eleanor S.]
Do you think Janet would like paintball? Manicures? Shopping?

And would you like those things?

Hi! Question.

What does boredom feel like? I'm asking for a friend.

(That friend is me.)

ETA: Thank you all for your responses! With your help, I have concluded that I am, indeed bored. What a fun survey!


[Attached is a 357 page, highly technical and scientific document with a series of complex mathematical theorems. However, names are named. Read on!]


I thought I would take a moment to introduce my latest research which, given the disappearances, appearances and reappearances of loved ones, might be of interest to others at this time. In the document I have, based on the months I have been here and data gathered from network posts before that, calculated the possibility of disappearances and reappearances based on:

1. Homeworld connections
2. Romantic connections

The details are all in the report for your perursal.

In layman’s terms, I believe there may be a sort of invisible tether between the Displaced that come from the same world and the portal. That tether is what increases the possibility of others appearing from that world, but also increases the possibility of a string of disappearances of that world. Think of it like a game of tug-o-war. Everyone from your home world is connected, but if one slips back through the portal, the possibility is increased they'll drag others with them.

[The document, while Michael does not call this out in this post, does name one name from each world (fandom) who he believes to be the most at risk for being taken away, who in turn puts everyone else from their world at risk. Have fun with this drama bomb if you like and see the OOC comment thread if you want to be the named person from your world/fandom!

Those who are the only character in their world (fandom) are not mentioned, but he does propose while they are the highest at risk for disappearing initially, that risk goes down much lower than those with multiple people from the same world the longer they're there if they remain the only person from their world as they might have developed a special resistance to being sent back.]

Now interestingly, new tethers can develop between the Displaced from separate worlds in the case of romantic connections. There may be a benefit of increased stability, but it seems just as likely to add an increased layer of risk. If one partner disappears, that tether appears to increase the risk of disappearance for the other.

Again, this is all discussing risk. The percentages of increased risk are within a range 3 to 37.4 percent, depending on variables mentioned in the document. I hope my work will help add awareness and understanding to our very particular set of circumstances.

Thank you.

[For the super smart characters in the room, the math does add up, buuuuut... For the super, duper smart characters (think Doctor level brain power) there's still quite a bit of conjecture. It's an interesting hypotheses, and Michael isn't lying but... Whether he's presenting the document to create drama or prepare people for the worst (or both!) is hard to say.]

This is by far my favorite spot at work:

And I have to say that Sweetums has some of the best products ever. For example, if you're one of those nervous nail biters? They've got these candied fingernails called Kandy Nailz, and they also have candy stick-on fingernails called Fingyums. So you're pretty much covered either way. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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?

I got $50,000. I think I will some of it to start my event planning business.

There's a ball coming up. Would you like to go with me, darling?

Hello. You next Bad Person Lesson is as follows:

Panicking, vaguebooking and posting the same confused nonsense over and over again, when someone has clearly already posted the same confused nonsense, is bad. It doesn't resolve anything and it makes it more difficult to post useful information to the network.

Good job, everyone!

Or, I suppose, you could just make one post about an ongoing issue and invite everyone affected by said issue to comment and share information. But I honestly don't expect that much from you.

It should also go without saying but posting repeated pictures of your pokemon is the moral equivelant to that one friend on facebook posting about their 2 week anniversary with their new boyfriend, then their 2 month anniversary, then their 3 month anniversary, and so on. You get one a year, people. That's it.


So I've got super powers and I work at a candy factory?

This is officially the real Good Place, yup.

May. 5th, 2018


So I am about to have the best job ever. I got a job I'm starting Monday and I just got this picture* text from my boss with the caption "Your desk is ready and waiting for you! See you at 9am :) ".

Although I have no need for money at all, I've decided that it is in my bests interests as a Growing Janet to take on a job of some kind. Is anyone in need of someone that can do anything, knows everything, and can instantaneously manifest anything that they may need? I'd be happy to offer my services and take your money.

[Brooke and Eleanor]

Hello! As my friends, I feel it's only right that I inform you that I am going on strike. As a Janet on the road to being More Than a Janet, I can no longer set aside my personal growth in order to serve and help others. To quote the Good Place's own Stevie Nicks: "I've been afraid of changing, 'cause I built my life around you. But time makes you bolder, children get older, and I'm getting older too.*"

I hope that I have your support me in my endeavor.

*Note that, in this context, 'my life' is referring to my existence, from activation onward, 'you' is referring to everyone in the universe, 'time' is referring to Michael's relentless determination to make his torture experiment work, resulting in my being murdered and reset 802 times, and that, as I am technically immortal and therefore I do not age, I am truly only 'getting older' chronologically.

May. 1st, 2018


Listen up folks. We still need people to fill in for the cast of Rocky if we're gonna do this shirt. I don't know who we need, but the blue guy does. I think his name is Gert? Anyway, talk to him and be a part of it. RHPS is awesome.

I have been contemplating the nature of humanity and bringing back good person lessons. Quite frankly, I thought you were all mostly likely walking trashbags that would give me ample research opportunity for my own personal project I've been working on. And while many of you do in fact do terrible things, I have been humbled. You're not completely awful and your potential for self-sabotage and suffering doesn't amuse me any more like I thought it would.

The problem is you, as humans, are very psychologically fragile. So if I give advice on how to be good for the sake of benefiting you both in the every day and for your eternal salvation, likely it'll be met with the same result as when I gave perfectly reasonable good advice in an effort to make you feel insecure and give into your worst instincts. Reverse psychology is a heck of a thing.

After much thought, I've decided instead to give Bad Person Lessons. I feel this will be much easier to grasp. So without further ado, your first bad person lesson.

Your Intentions Matter.

Now, I don't want to get into a slippery slope of what ifs. Nor do I want to even try and get into the complicated algorithm and point system that weighs each and every one of your actions. We'll just keep this simple.

1. If you do a good deed for ulterior motives (like one-upmanship or a crass attempt to improve your Good Person Score®, for example) than the deed is not really good. Your motives should be pure and you should expect nothing in return for your good deed.

2. Conversely, if you do something bad, it will almost always be bad. But sometimes your intention makes it less bad than it would be if you were acting out of pure selfishness and evil. But only sometimes.

This concludes your first bad person lesson.

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. 19th, 2018


Now that we're back in Tumbleweed, and things are a settling down just a little bit, is there still an interest to put on that production of Rocky Horror Picture Show? Maybe as something to look forward to, next month? I was at the community theater earlier today, and I can book us a night to perform there.

[ETA: Cast List with roles confirmed and needed] beneath the cut... )

While you are dealing with the disturbances others have posted about, please be advised to avoid [address] as there are also violent, terrifying monsters who appear to have been recently displaced here.

I'm sure it'll work itself out. At present they only appear to be threatening the lives and property of the locals.

Thank you.

Okay so when I was alive the first time around, I was basically a horrible person. A dumpster fire. A dirt bag. Being dead and faced with punishment and all that, I started to learn how to be a good person, even though I didn't really think I'd ever get to the Good Place.

Now I'm alive again and the only thing I've been doing for the last twelve years is sell crappy medication to sick and old people to try and weasel them out of however much money I could, but I don't want to do that anymore.

So, crowdsourcing here. What kind of job would a good person get?


Attention Fellow Displaced:

For those of you literally fresh off the boat, you may come to [address] to pick up your new documentation. Driver's license, social security card, and whatever else you might need are all ready and waiting for you. If you are a minor, your guardian will need to be the one to pick up your paperwork.

Unfortunately my suggestion that some of the more famous or ridiculous names be replaced with something much more common, Severus Snape being both famous and ridiculous for Sylvester Snipes which is a much, much better name for example, was overruled. Only your actual names will appear on the documentation.

A number of folks here have worked very hard to replace whatever government presence there was and help get things back up and running. For the documentation you may thank Smart Loki, Quentin Quire, Jo Harville, Matt Murdock, Ianto Jones, Rick Jones, Integra, Scary Alucard, Jason Todd, Slightly More Attractive Loki, Kurama, Pidge Gunderson, Sam Winchester, Tim Drake, and Ezekiel.

Thank you.

Hi there! This is to inform you all that I will not be staying in the void for the foreseeable future, as I have taken on guardianship of a teenager, and will be guiding her into adulthood in my spare time. This will require me to take up residence in her very large mansion. By my calculation, this will decrease my reaction time by approximately .0341 nanoseconds. Thank you for your understanding, and I’m sorry for your wait!

So, I legit get that a lot of people are feeling really shitty right about now, and the ship is kinda lame in both senses of the word. But I'm kinda feeling like distractions might be good for the masses. And because I cannot with my suite mate right now

That said, what activities are still functional? Can anyone tell? That symposium room is totally big enough we could make it a mini-movie theatre for like a night if anyone could set up projection stuff. Anyone up for light-hearted mindless movies that mean people around but not talking?

Help me out here it's too much like.

Mar. 29th, 2018


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.]


So yeah, in case anyone was wondering, Rocky Horror's being pushed back to IDK when yet.

Alright, everybody. DO NOT, if you can help it, use your room's personal toilet until I've had a chance to get the plumbing system working fully on magic. I'm going to start with the public restrooms and the main pipes first. I'll mark the doors of the restrooms that are ready to use once I'm done with them.

HOWEVER, it's gonna take me a bit since I don't know how all this ship's plumbing works yet so if you really gotta go, just go and I'll come by and clean it up once the public restrooms are functional. Just leave me a message with your room number so I can get to those places first before the others.

If anyone with magic is free and wants to help me with this, it's gonna be gross but it's not so bad if you're good with Vanishing spells. But if you're doing food preservation or whatever then stick to doing that cause that's important too.

Also, you're welcome, everyone, in advance.
