Anyone teach sword fighting around here? And who is good with werewolf lore?

[ FILTERED TO CLIVE BABINEAUX & LIV MOORE ]
Liv, I have something important to ask you that I've been putting off since I got here.

What's the last thing you remember about home?

The bad news is getting ☠☠☠☠ on your boots is somehow worse when you know exactly what it is.

The good news is the rest of your burgers are safe from ancient curses.

The moral is you can declare something to be a miracle or try to eat it. Doing both is just asking for trouble.

I realize that we're over our comfortable limit for crazy at the moment, but anyone want to volunteer for contracting an ancient curse? Cross something off the old bucket list? I've got some sliders here with your name on them.

Apparently, I am no longer decaying. The freezer was suddenly far too cold for me, and after getting a clean bill of health, I am out of here.

Still not quite as bad as recovering from being shot in the head.

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?

Those of you interested in learning the wandless casting style from my world, I'm going to offer free classes every Tuesday and Thursday starting next week, from 3:00pm to 4:30pm at [location*]. It'll start basic, mostly to help some of you get hand gestures down who haven't used them before.

(*The location is not rented out, but something abandoned that will be magically warded to keep from being seen or heard from the outside. They're free classes, people. She's not spending money on this.)

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.

Soon enough the Americans will host their Fourth again, and I was wondering if anyone would care to get together and have our own little gathering. One where there's a lot less fireworks.

I see congratulations are in order for forming your own country. It is a terrible shame that I should arrive here in the New World along with Mrs. Quigley's home, but no Mrs. Quigley to speak of, nor anyone else who previously resided there. It is a fine and most reputable house, visited often by those with of discerning tastes. Now there only vacancies to be filled. Whatever am I to do?

There is still plenty of wine to drink, the vintage most agreeable in my time, though I suspect might be a curiosity in yours. It would be absolutely wicked of me to indulge without offering. Therefore I have no choice but to cordially invite all of you to my home on the Eve of the Thirteenth, which I find appropriate given my circumstances, at [address].

If you are a gambler, I would be most honored to host you at my table.

Please come in your most fashionable. I am curious to see more of what people are wearing these days. I still have much to learn of your world and am grateful for the company.


To new friendships,

Bloody hell, this ☠☠☠☠☠☠☠ minge of an attic has buggered off for a wander again. Don't flip out if you see a door that opens onto a dark staircase somewhere it shouldn't be, it's totally harmless. Nothing but dust, shade goblins and a few boxes of useless old shit. Worst case if you go in is you might come back out in a different part of town.

There are times I'm convinced this portal has some sort of will to it, because some days it offers several dangerous creatures. Other days, apparent gifts. This does make transportation a little easier though.

Emergency alert. I cannot see in the dark. Repeat. I cannot see in the dark. This would have been fine, except I normally can see in the dark, and didn't turn on the lights when Angel woke up at three in the morning. I'm fine, but I'm pretty sure the lamp I knocked over will never recover.

[info]tahanitime

I really do need to throw a party. I certainly have the space for it, and it's almost shameful of me that I've been here this long, and not had one yet. Though I think lacking the money to do exactly what I want for it is a bit of a damper on my plans.

It's admittedly unusual to be able to look myself up on the internet and find information. Admittedly, it's not a full story and it's about a different version of me, but still strange. At least there are a few places worth visiting and the food's not too bad.

Anyway. Hello fellow Displaced. My name is Marina Andrieski and I'm from the same world technically as Julia and [...] the others. It's been an interesting few days. I guess It'll be nice to meet you all. Or whatever

I'm gonna lay this out there. We have no science department right now, so we have no idea where the portals came from, why they showed up, if they're tied to anything we might have done, or if the disappearances have anything to do with the portals.

I know there's a lot of science types out there, but we are severely lacking in equipment, and we're still talking funding with those of the Displaced who offered there help. If you'd like to be included on budget talks because you're interested in helping us fund the place, that can be arranged, just let me know.

For now, we're still handling everything on a volunteer basis.

ETA: This includes magical studies too.

ELSA BLOODSTONE, WARREN WORTHINGTON III, T'CHALLA, KURAMA & PEGGY CARTER:
We might need a bigger science department then I thought. We were not prepared at all for those portals to open up around town. Thankfully, the Displaced stepped up, like they always do, but we need to find out if there's a way we can get some kind of advanced warning. Some kind of readings that might give us a hint at where a portal might open up.

Merlin, there's [...] there's dementors. They're in [...] Council 7, I think, based on the map? But they could be anywhere. I'm going after them; any magical folk that can cast a Patronus, come and help, there's a lot of them, and they might spread out.

Non magical folk, you may not be able to see them, but if you start feeling incredibly unhappy for no explainable reason, if you start reliving the worst things you've experienced, RUN. And try to let me or someone else with magic know.

It's so lovely to be back home with my darlings. The weapon situation on that boat was just appalling. At least now I can put the few pieces I picked up from the pirates away with everything else and my little eldritch bat is settling in well.

I am curious about one thing. When you all say your homes are just as you left them, how literal are you being? It hardly bloody seems like three months have passed here, that's for damn sure.

So, this is the infamous Tumbleweed! I can't say it head been what I expected, but that could be because I never traveled to the states before. Tell me, is there a place here that one may be able to obtain an automobile or car for free of charge or a small fee? It doesn't necessarily have to be functional, see.

I don't supposed there's some form of Ministry of Magic, here, is there?

Military base is secure. We've determined there's no contagion. These people, unfortunately, were killed by something. Still unknown. We're digging through digital files, but I'm not that hopeful. 1999's idea of digital video is grainy at best, unwatchable at worst. Especially given that these are security cameras. Could use some help if someone wants to figure out the labeling system they've given these files. There's only one computer so three people in eight hour shifts. Trust me, those 8 hours are going to feel like 48. Bring music to listen to.

The power's back on. What we weren't expecting was that the entire building has a No Powers restriction on it. Electricity's on, no power. Power's off, abilities on. The building itself only vaguely resembles the layout from before. There's less medical facilities — all of it is emergency-related, and a curiously fresh batch of vaccines. Containers look a hell of a lot like the ones we got on the ship. Anyone want to come and test it to make sure it is what it says it is? Medical area has a bunch of pictures from the space pox we gave them in the 1950s as a warning.

There's a dated computer by the one room we can't get into. My guess would say that's the portal room, but why it's on lockdown, I couldn't say. Either the thing that killed them is locked down in there or they didn't want to risk the portal being accessed by the wrong people. No surveillance cameras are working at the moment. All but one of them have been destroyed by claw marks or bite marks. I'm not hopeful this thing didn't get out. Several exits have been compromised.

First things first, thanks Tony for setting up the food fundraiser. Unfortunately, money leads into my second point: we're going to need a lot of money to get this up and running again. We have no idea when any new arrivals might show up, what condition they'll be in, or how to figure out where and how their housing turns up. It's a logistical nightmare.

If you don't want an actual date to the ball or a quick screw, but you do want to know you'll have someone to dance with so you don't look like a right git hovering alone near the buffet or having to talk to the date you do have - who, let's admit it, you possibly should have picked based on personality rather than how fuckable they look - this would be the place to arrange it. Give us your name and a half-way honest assessment of your ability to stay off your partner's feet.

Okay, so - I had to get a shot, but it was given by polite robots instead of a pissed off nurse who's been on his feet for 14 hours and smells like puke.

There's an all you can eat buffet, but I'm stuck on a boat in the middle of nowhere.

There's a full casino, but you don't win any actual money so it's all kind of pointless.

I'm in the Medium Place, huh? Am I right or am I right? Oh fork me. At least tell me the alcohol isn't all room temperature and that the buffet includes shrimp.

Has anyone seen a gorgeous giraffe, a dorky guy in unnecessary glasses who can't make up his mind to save his own forking life, a spaz who's probably wearing a monk's outfit or a track suit, a white-haired guy who wears a bow tie all the time, or Janet around?
