Do you and Kitty have plans for New Years Eve?

Have you heard Margo or I talk about Team New Years at all?

With a good deal of holidays upon us I thought it might be a good idea to start determining how we may wish to go about participating in them, as well as creating our own that are unique to our culture.

We have several events in our own history that should be celebrated or remembered.

I would also like to have those from Lauren and Ororo's worlds decide if there are events or circumstances from their worlds that we should also be marking for remembrance of celebration.

If anyone needs anything, let me know. I can't talk, but that seems to be one of the less debilitating fairy effects to deal with.

[...] My classes are certainly going to be interesting.

Are you alright? I saw you change at the ball.

Sep. 14th, 2018


Event: Unseelie Court Ball

WHO: The Displaced and a bunch of fairies.
WHEN: From midnight until 6am. Technically early Sunday morning.
WHERE: Another dimension
WHAT: The Unseelie Court invites you to a ball. (Make sure to tag your characters as you add them). Masks arrived shortly after the Abducted were taken the prior night.

Welcome, welcome! )

The Fire Marshall said that today's alarm was false on our end. It could be a student who pulled it, but we can't rule out an electrical problem somewhere.

Keep an eye open either way. I'll get an electrician in.
We still don't know what these invitations mean, but I'm willing to guess we'll find out what they want with thirteen souls in the next 48 hours. So we need to go over a plan beforehand.

Action Points
  • Everyone under 18 needs to go to the island tomorrow after classes. This is not negotiable. Betsy and Megan aren't joking that this could get dangerous.
  • People over 18 who are field confident and wanting to get involved, we should talk 2-3 teams of 4-6. We can use these for rapid response going forward in the event of other attacks.
  • Keep comms on, be aware of your (and your ability's) strengths and weaknesses and stay in your role. We don't need to repeat injuries that happened on the ship.

This town is the living embodiment of Friday Night Lights without the hot coach. Nothing is open. Looks like I'm making a doorway somewhere fun tonight.

When do you get back in town?
Everyone is doing this Quidditch thing. Why don't we have a Welters field?

You know what I miss most about home? That September actually MEANT something. Here, it's just more heat. Up north, I might be able to wear a jacket now. And the leaves might start changing. Pumpkin Spice Lattes would be abundant and make it feel even more like fall.

I am seriously on a fall spiral.

What do you think about a weekend trip some time?

Hey, read up if you're one of these:
  • interdimensional teleporter
  • interdimensional energy channeler
  • demonic/hellish realm-connected
  • something else related I haven't thought of
If you haven't noticed already, there's a hell dimension here. You might have accidentally connected with it or entered it. I suggest you don't do it intentionally. Right now, one of the factions is getting seriously pissed off at several of the others, and it might erupt. It isn't going to spill over here— they have no access— but if you go there, you could get caught up in their drama. Don't do that.

I've got Bohemian Rhapsody stuck in my head. Over and over. "I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me! He's just a poor boy from a poor family." And then random parts from the operatic section. And I've listened to the song ten times in a row now, and it won't get UNSTUCK.


Or conversely, tell me what's stuck in your head?

Third week in. How do you think it's coming along? Do we need more supplies? I can order them or go pick them up, whichever.

All right, I'm back. None of the demons know anything about that whole faerie situation. They haven't had encounters before. Not surprising; they wouldn't exactly be welcomed in the Faerie Court, for instance. Their table manners are really, really bad.

We've gotten three bogeys on our portal scanner, and they are not in town. Ones in Queens, another in Kearney, Nebraska, and the other is in Siberia. This is an all hands on deck situation, as we're ridiculously understaffed. Our Googler is on the internet, looking for social media related to it. So far, it's just portals. We have no idea what's coming.

I need civilians who are willing to fight whatever comes out of there and take orders.

Why is it some demons are no more mature than human children? Fart jokes. I've got demons making fart jokes, and they aren't even good ones. Better than making murderous mischief, but it's so annoying.

And why did the pod god decide I needed to have a new, extremely pink wardrobe like I'm a teenager all over again?

I know people are a lil all over the place because of the whole power swap thing that's happened to some, but is anyone up for heading to NYC this Friday to go dancing?

If you're worried about powers going outta control my offer to help with that still stands.

I miss you. I know that things have been awkward since it came out. Your feelings for me. I've been trying to give you space, and I've been trying to figure out my own feelings.

It's complicated. I love you. You're my best friend. Sometimes I feel like there's more, but I've never really thought about it being attraction. I guess because of Piotr. It feels weird to think about you like that, like I'm just interested in any of you. Like it doesn't matter which Rasputin. But it does. You and Piotr are both my best friends, and is it weird if I say I want to try with you?

We were fairly laissez faire with Atlantis and got caught up in the middle of a war. Middle Earth already has the potential to be a lot more potentially violent. So let's talk safety in Middle Earth.

  • I don't want anyone going off on their own. Use the buddy system--at least--particularly if you are going outside of the Grey Havens.
  • If you are leaving the Grey Havens, make sure you are suitably equipped with equipment you have some idea how to use (or have someone in your party capable of defense). Communicate your position regularly in case you need to be picked up in an emergency.
  • Until we have a better feel of the attitude of the locals, keep your powers close to your chest.
  • Do not go looking for fights especially those of you who are still recovering from Atlantis. There is nothing cool about getting your ass kicked by a dragon.
  • If there are rumblings of conflict between the native groups, regroup at the ship ASAP.

    So, let's all have fun, but safe fun.

    Teleporters, travelers, apparating assholes folk:

    I'll do a final sweep of decks 11-13 if we're taking everyone non-combatants to the community center.

    Can someone else be in charge of this? What about that Russian chick?


    Has anyone learned anything more than these robots are willing to say?

    Jan. 16th, 2018


    Since we've mostly got our battle plans sorted I want to talk about evacuations as well. There's getting to be a lot of us and in a crisis things get confusing so knowing in advance what to do will go a long way to making sure it goes right.

    • Almost all the time when an evacuation alert goes out there's not going to be time to do much except get to the lifeboats on Deck 6. You should probably check where they are at some point so you know where you're going.
    • A lot of us have pets and I know no one wants to leave them behind. If they're out with you that's not much of a problem but otherwise you should pick one person per suite to go and grab them if there's enough time. We have to be realistic that sometimes there won't be, and I'm not just saying that for everyone else - I always have at least my budgies that are confined to their cage and sometimes my Eevee stays behind too.
    • Relatedly, Rogue suggested that it might be a good idea to pack a go bag for emergencies so that if there is a little more time you can grab it instead of trying to figure out in the moment what to bring. You shouldn't need to worry about food and things, so it's better to pack light so we don't take up too much space. A few clothes, medications, things you really don't want to leave behind.

    Now the important bit, not leaving anyone behind. We need a way to know who's already boarded a lifeboat and who hasn't, which Tony should be able to do using the bracelets. (I'm assuming?) We also need a couple of people for each floor who can do a quick sweep to make sure everyone's left and to make sure the lifeboats are boarded efficiently. You will most likely be the last people to leave, so keep that in mind. For floors 1-4 and 7-10 that'll probably be banging on doors, for the others a quick check of all the public areas. Then when that's done, get to Deck 6 to help load.

    I've only evacuated towns and cities before so please weigh in on any of this ^ if you think there's a better way of doing things. And if you want to be a floor monitor or floor captain or whatever, sign up here. 18+, minors should go directly to the lifeboats. Everyone else make sure you know who's responsible for the floors you spend most time on.

    adding: Since each accommodation deck has their own lifeboat, based on Anakin's experience it's best to stick to what's been assigned. People responsible for clearing the matching floors will also have the final call on when to launch, even if someone's missing. So, make sure you have a decent idea of who should be there and make note of whether any of them are clearing public decks and can be expected to take a little longer. Tech, I'd still like a way to check people off as they board lifeboats if we can so we know if anyone hasn't turned up. The way people come and go it's going to be more reliable than memory.

    Other things people have pointed out
    • Make sure your floor coordinators know who's in charge of fetching pets so they can expect who'll be around
    • There was talk about swimming lessons for anyone who doesn't know how which I would definitely recommend, having literally been marooned on a Caribbean island
    • Gansey's going to check with the robots to see if there's a way to teach some people to row. We do have a couple people with water powers which would be the ideal but let's try not to rely on it.

    This may seem like a happy-go-lucky cruise for the folks that weren't here for the last jump, but I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    I'll be teaching classes for the school, but I think we're going to need some security protocols. Anyone interested can meet me at the Explorer Lounge where I'll be drinking my weight in booze, and then some. We can discuss there. Or here. I really don't care. It just needs to get done.

    And dammit all, my horses better be okay when we get back.

    Alright, fellow passengers. Now that I am back on board because you kind of can't stay out in the ocean forever (I mean, I need my sleep too, and I am for certain that Dad's underwater palace is nowhere near so.. SO.. moving on), a couple of things to note:

    - I'm not sure if it's legal to fish for things around here or anything but there are actual normal marine wildlife around here. As far as I can see, really. Just do not hunt for sharks. Those poor guys are endangered enough.

    - Thanks to my dad, I'm able to usually see or sense navigational lines in the waters. And unfortunately, I can't see them. At least, I can't see the latitudinal or longitudinal lines in these waters. So, I'm about 85% sure that we're not on our Earth's oceans. The remaining 15% wonders if it's just my powers, although the rest of them seem intact. So, hey, even if we were able to steer the ship (which I doubt), we'd not know where to go anyway, unless someone else can sense them.

    - You CAN swim in the ocean if you feel like swimming with wildlife but for safety's sake, since these are still mostly unfamiliar territory, I'd suggest letting someone who is a water-related expert here (like myself or Remy although I can only volunteer myself) know first, so you can get back to the ship safely.

    That's basically it. I think I'm going to go collapse in the suite now.

    Jan. 6th, 2018


    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.

    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.

    Hey. I just realized it's been a little while.

    How's it going?

    Nov. 1st, 2017


    I've been thinking. We should really hash this stuff out because I need you to know exactly why I'm still pissed, and I think you deserve to have someone be completely honest with you. I realize you don't care what I think so take this with whatever grain of salt you will.

    I can forgive you for messing with everyone's heads into believing that Scott was still alive. Grief does really stupid things to people, and I understand that. I can even understand going to war with the Inhumans, if you truly believed they were doing it on purpose and just didn't care that their mist was killing us.

    What I can't understand is that you kept pushing for war, even when you found out that they had no idea and were working with us to find a cure. That you spent that year creating Inhuman-killing Sentinels after knowing exactly what it's like to be hunted by them.

    You and I have very different ideas about what's right and what's wrong. We always have. You've been willing to push things a lot more than I ever will be. There are some lines that I won't cross. I need to know that you're not going to do something like that here with these people. The Displaced, Avengers and all, are all we have here. I won't have that jeopardized.

    If you can promise me that you won't do anything like that here, then I'm willing to be civil.
    Hey, so the new Wolfenstein game came out. Wanna kill Nazis with me?
