Has anyone else paid a visit to your home away from home? The place you come from, but in this universe?

My universe isn't all that different from this one, but my home certainly was. A lot can change in fifty years. Finally, the promise of Auferstanden aus Ruinen is fulfilled.

I've been enjoying the festival all weekend, especially last night's pageant. As someone who comes from a society and culture where extravagant hairstyles are in, I have to say I'm still impressed with how big Miss Tumbleweed was able to get her hair.

I also never knew there were so many ways to create a tumbleweed costume. I've seen a lot today, including a young boy who had a variety of suckers and other candy all stuck to him - hair, clothes, cheek, arms ...

Now that I think of it, I'm not sure if he was in costume or not...

Good afternoon. My name is Jim Rhodes and I help Tony Stark look after Peter Parker, who I believe you know as Henry's friend. The three of us are planning a trip out to California this weekend and we were wondering if Henry would like to join us so that Peter has company his own age?

Unfortunately, teenagers think they're too cool to hang out with old men like Tony and I.

Rogue's going through something right now and it's making me realize that there are some things I don't want not being said before it's too late.

I have some ridiculously strong feelings for you two. I'm certain that it's love. You don't have to say anything in return, but I thought I'd put that out there before I lost my nerve. All I know is that I don't want one of us going somewhere before I had a chance to say that. I expect nothing to come from this, I'm not looking to change our relationships with one another, but I couldn't keep this to myself any longer.

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.

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!]

TONY STARKS:
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?

Without Logan's extra income we can't operate at so much of a loss anymore so this is what's going to happen now. There'll be a $5/month membership fee and a card reader on the door so locals can't get if they get curious and there doesn't always need to be someone around. Syd's job doesn't change. Teachers will get $50 per class plus anything you decide to charge. I'm dropping down to part time at The Bronze and taking supervisor shifts so the income loss won't be as bad, and Logan and I had each other's names on our financial things. Between everything, assuming only about half the people here decide to keep a membership, most months will probably still be a small loss, but it will be manageable without breaking into Fort Knox again.

I'll add a public announcement here later, this is just to fill you in first.

For those who are not already regulars and familiar with the Howlett Gym schedule, I teach a class in nonmagical defense against magic, a particular specialty of mine and one that I would argue is exceptionally useful in a place like this. It is open anyone, including magical folk, who can alternate between magical sparring and nonmagical sparring, to help others practice and to learn the skills themselves to fight without their magic.

In fact, I would greatly appreciate more magic folk joining in, to give students a wide range of types of magic to learn to defend themselves against. Alina helps me regularly with her light magic, but as she is not allowed to actually cut anyone in half, she sometimes gets bored with blinding people.

If you have an ability that is technically non-magical but makes you more powerful than the average person, I might be willing to work you in as well. Let me know if you're interested, and we can discuss your abilities beforehand so that I can formulate a lesson plan. This has always been on a volunteer basis, or rather you would be considered a regular participant in the class; however, I might be willing to pay a few people out of my own pocket if they bring important skills to the table, especially since I know money is a concern for everyone right now. If that's something you're interested in, we can discuss it further, and of course the gym owner, Laura, would have to sign off on it as well.

The class meets Monday through Friday, 4 PM - 5:30 PM. I hope to see you there.

[info]x_facility

To keep you updated on my plans, the gym will remain open. I'm still working out the details on exactly how and it might involve a very small membership fee but it will only be what's needed to keep things running.

I am also considering setting up an area on the ranch where Pokemon can spend time, especially the ones that don't resemble any other animals here. That won't need much ongoing upkeep but I suppose someone could offer babysitting as a paid service if people wanted to be able to leave them there while they go to work. We bought the land here, it is not something that came through like people's houses, so even if I disappear someone will be able to take over the property. The gym as well.

Perhaps the people in this land misunderstand the rules of fighting. If I can make my opponent drop his weapon in the melee and then bring him down with a few well-placed hits, then I have won. The judges seemed to frown upon this. Who needs a sword anyway? Fighting with hands is much more effective.
