HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KAMALA! I know it's still a few hours too early, but I was too excited that I couldn't wait. I got you a gift but I'll wait until I see you in person because I don't want to ruin the surprise. Did we still have plans to celebrate? I've been so so so busy these last couple weeks and I misplaced my calendar in the move.

And then it's my birthday the day after, which is super neat. Maybe if we consider timezone differences we could have been born the same day! That makes us almost like friendtwins. Is that a thing? It should be a thing.

[Filter: Friends (Jan &co, Shuri, Kamala & Cho, Pixie, Howard Stark residence, etc.)]
I got permission from Mr. Stark and Jarvis to throw a birthday party. I'm going to be 17! It's the first one I've ever celebrated, so I'm not so sure how to plan it very well. Cho said he can cater the food. And cheesecake!

I know I haven't been here very long and the people I know back home don't really know me well here... and it's kinda last minute to send out invitations. But I was hoping some people could come if they're not too busy. We can play some games and I have lots of Dazzler music to dance to. It'd be on October 1st around 6pm. If you have any friends you'd wanna bring too, feel free. I just don't want anything TOO crazy because it's Mr. Stark's house and I don't want to break anything. Please RSVP so we know how much food to have!

[Friends & Acquaintances*]
So, I'm in a little bit of a bind. Peggy moved out and today so did Jarvis. I'm still only six inches tall right now so I can't really get around by myself just yet. Anyone got a spare shoebox I can sleep in? Promise I don't take up much space. It's completely temporary, people's curses are lifting every day. I'll promise to be out of your hair as soon as I'm back to my normal height.

*A super broad filter, except it does not include Peggy, Jarvis or Bucky (PH). Why? Bucky (PH) is out of town and Steve isn't entirely sure where Peggy moved out, but he's trying to avoid making anyone feel guilty or awkward. But he's also a total idiot and might be wrong.

[Peggy Carter]
Jarvis moved out with Howard. Howard has extended an invitation for me to stay with him while I'm unable to open doors. I don't like the idea of you moving out. It doesn't sit right with me. You invited me to stay with you when I got here, and I'm grateful for it.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, the place is yours. It should be yours, if you want it. I'll let you know when I can report back to the base. No change yet.

Sep. 22nd, 2018



Jarvis, I need a drink.

Peg, help me out here, will ya?

Steve! How... how friggin many of you are there?

....that's one hell of a smooth process for newcomers. How long has this been happening for them to get it that perfect?!

I HAVE A SON??!!?!??!

Hello beautiful world. And Tumbleweed.

Did I miss anything not on the network?

I also need recs for someone to come over and do a very important mani-pedi house call. When Margo wakes up, it will be flawless.

I was just thinking about receiving gifts or whatever you want to call them from the portal or from whoever has control here. Well, in a very odd coincidence, I was delivered a handwritten letter sent to me from - myself. Did anyone else receive anything similar recently?

Sep. 8th, 2018


Hello! My name is Nadia Van Dyne. I'm new here, but I hear that's a common occurrence in this world. Jarvis has been kind enough to explain some of it to me, but it's all so overwhelming. This whole portals to an alternate world seems exciting and all but... I was hoping to get back to my friends. They were in danger when I left and even my communicators haven't worked.

I was told some of them, or some version of them, may be here? I don't know all of their real names, secret identities and everything. But if anyone has seen a boy my age named Sam, I'm worried about him.

Anyway! If I'm stuck here, maybe it'd help to make some new friends. Is everyone here from other places too?

Sep. 4th, 2018


This was the best. Kinda reminded me of home, you know? Jan I figured you might want these for your insta. Haha. They should do this every day.

[Embedded are a series of pictures Marcy took of the Town Square Fountain someone pranked a few days ago. The pictures are mostly of Jan and others doing the work of cleaning it up, and Marcy taking a few selfies showing her utter delight.]


What sort of ridiculous garbage world are we even in?

We don't even have a real university.

Aug. 30th, 2018


Why didn't anyone tell me you can change the picture on the phone?

Aug. 27th, 2018



Aug. 24th, 2018


I need five people — 3 women, 2 men — who are willing to try on a bunch of clothes and accessories and then get your picture taken. That's right! I need models!

I have several items I'm wanting to test how they move on people. Alterations will be necessary so I will need people who can come in multiple times.

Have you guys gotten all your classes yet? What are you going to take?
How do you feel about me maybe working some of my fabrics to get you a couple outfits so you can walk around in the sunlight?

Aug. 23rd, 2018


Generally less enthused about the Saturday Morning Cartoon experience now than I was going in. Still, I guess I can see the humor in the whole hit-by-a-cartoon-ambulance thing. Packs a bigger punch than a Lego Hulk, as it turns out.

Your days of freedom are about to dip into the single digits. Did you get anything from the school with a list of how many number two pencils you need or whatever?

Aug. 20th, 2018


You all suck for not trying to help me out with the bad poetry thing the other day. I'm mad at all of you. There's nothing you can do to make it up to me. No crocodile tears with save you.

Also, why couldn't we have something to fight instead of Toons everywhere? We could have had MONSTERS UNLEASHED or fish people, but noooooooo. Toons.

Aug. 19th, 2018


[backdated to Saturday about 11am]

Okay so I woke up this morning,
and my brain gave out a warning.
Bad poetry's not how I talk,
I much prefer the catwalk.
Someone take off this spell,
I feel like I'm in hell!

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you who came out to my birthday party on Tuesday. And here I thought my two best friends in the world, Maria and Daisy, had forgotten all about me and my likes and my idea of fun. I had a blast. I am OFFICIALLY 21 now! I guess it just makes me that much closer in age to my beloved Thor. Not you, you silly thing. The one in my world. (I wouldn't say no to a wing-eating contest though. Think about it.)

I have exciting news!!!!

Van Dyne's is very nearly DONE. I've been totally working on new designs between shifts at the Starbucks at the Tumbleweed Hotel. (Today is Happy Hour! Come by after 3 today and snag a Frappucino for half off. That means you can get TWO for the same price. DOUBLE THE SUGAR!) I may have been enjoying them already.

Ahem. ANYWAY, be on the lookout soon for photos of my designs! I've got swimwear, outerwear, fancy dresses, casual wear, shoes, and costumes on the way.

OTHER PEOPLE LIVE HERE TOO I miss my teammates. The ones I made when I decided I wasn't going to part of the shit show that was Civil War. I miss Viv and wish she had stayed. I miss Nadia and Sam and Miles and Cyclops. But like, the younger Scott, the one who ended up totally time-displaced and decided to join us. I guess having Cho around helps, but we need fresher and newer faces up here.

Sometimes, I miss the chance to be a normal teen again and actually have sleepovers or something with friends too but then I remember how my not-American parents never understood that concept, so I wouldn't have gotten normal teenage sleepovers anyway even if I wasn't a superhero, BUT! A lot of us hung out like normal teens in between all the superheroing when we could. It was funtimes. I wish they could be back here.

The heat is unbearable here. It's as if the sun is angry with us.

Is the sun angry with us? Did any of you do something to it?

Should I create thunderstorms? The clouds they bring will give us relief. I'll keep them going for the next few days or until one of the Ororos makes me stop.

Jul. 1st, 2018


Do you ever go to look and see if there's a fan t-shirt for something in your show and find yourself disappointed that no one has made it? I feel let down a little. I guess that means I'm going to have to design this shirt on my own. Or ask someone else to do it. Either way.

Jun. 28th, 2018


Waitresses are beautiful creatures. The ones at JJ's just float around like angels.

[werewolves + sam + buffy]

This is my first full here, so I'm nervous. I don't want to hurt anyone.

For everyone else, Sam said I can stay in a room in his bunker for the night.

Jun. 27th, 2018


So I've not been here long, but I'd love a chance to get to meet people face to face.

So I'm going to be grilling in the Park in Council 8 on Sunday afternoon. If anyone wants to stop by for a burger and some age appropriate cold beverages*, maybe play some frisbee, we'll make room for you.

ETA: And juice for Clint Barton.


Everything is set for school in the fall and I am working on getting a summer job so that I can support school and make sure we don't starve. I've read a couple books and started working on a few ideas for architectural projects just in case. I'm sure I won't need them, but it's better to be prepared than not.

Does anyone want to come with me to buy tasteful, but affordable clothes for interviews?

Jun. 12th, 2018


First I've seen of the unusual things that happen. It isn't too different from home, but the invasions are a bit different. Last bug infestation we had was an over-sized pain in the ass of a roach. Then again, arachnoids and bugs aren't really the same thing.

The people in these places still seem to forget what happens or has this never happened spread out like this?

Jun. 10th, 2018


I miss Avengers Beach. And vacationing with Loki and making Tony worry about bathing suits and Frost giants and freezing to death.

I really just want a pool. Is that too much to ask?

Jun. 5th, 2018


Behold! The fruits of my labor.

[Private to Fred and George Weasley]
Allow me to pitch an idea.

Given all the people whinging about the heat, think we could charm some wearable objects with a freezing spell? Think portable cooling system.


Never get bored, Google yourself, and read fanfiction written about yourself.

Or do, if that's what you're into.

Jun. 3rd, 2018


Yeah, alright, Jan. You win. Nobody got killed at the ball and I actually had a good time. I owe you an ice cream or something.

I'm only slightly less grumpy with being here now.

May. 29th, 2018


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.

May. 24th, 2018


Well, I know that I never had this when I was home, so I guess the portal is okay giving presents that don't exactly belong to you? At least I have a way to get to and from work now, so that's nice. I need to get a helmet, though.

Do you need a little fashion help when it comes to fancy balls?


I've got five slots available for custom-made dresses or suits for the upcoming ball. First come, first serve.


With a ball coming up and with myself being without a job so far, I'd like to offer my services as a Grisha Tailor to the masses that will be attending.

First point I'd like to make is that by Tailor, I do not mean in terms of clothes. I work with physical attributes. I can make blemishes disappear. I can do a variety of hairstyles and add shiny to your locks. I can match your makeup perfectly to the dress you plan on wearing. I'll even give your eyes a particular tint. I can do most of this without caking your face full of foundation and primer and whatnot that the beauty salons of this world love so much.

If you're wondering about my credentials in this department, this is all I did during my life living at the palace in my world for the Queen. I was her Tailor for all the big events, having lived with her since I was five. I was a servant girl in this matter, however, so my payment was basically food and a roof over my head, but I've accumulated years of skill-honing.

The effects will be temporary, at best for several hours, so no need to worry about permanent makeup. Please reach out to me if you'd like my services.

GIVEN a cohesive and regulated appearance facilitates visual detection of outsiders, improving compound security.
GIVEN performance of similar tasks, uniform appearance, and adherence to structural regulations has been shown to accelerated in-group acceptance, leading to an increased sense of belonging
GIVEN adherance to uniform standards can increase attention to detail, sense of community, and personal pride in appearance
GIVEN this uniform appearance can increase the appearance of professionalism, contributing positively to corporate branding.
GIVEN that Resettlement Bureau personnel come into constant contact with an array of potentially foreign pathogens, clothing worn and processed in house limits risk of cross-contamination of the Tumbleweed community.
GIVEN that many Resettlement Bureau staff arrive with no access to outside finances beyond housing, affordable, professional clothing becomes a prime concern.

IT IS CONCLUDED that the establishment of a uniform would greatly benefit the Resettlement Bureau

IT HAS BEEN PROPOSED that designs by a displaced fashion designer, Ms. Janet van Dyne of [ADDRESS], could be considered as an economical means of designing and distributing uniforms while simultaneously uplifting a displaced person seeking capital for her own business.

In the interest of full disclosure, I do live with Ms. van Dyne. But I can speak to the quality of her work.

I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about having a pink gem on my bellybutton, but I have now figured out how to coordinate outfits around it. I might as well make the best of this situation, for however long I'm going to be in it.

May. 12th, 2018


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.

I got two arms and I need to punch things. Anyone up for a spar?

Tomorrow, 7 PM, Jake and I are having a poker night at Team America House. It'll be in the backyard. BBQ, a vegetarian option, and sides will be provided, but bring money to lose. BYOB.

It's kind of weird not having Bucky around. I keep expecting him to show up and say something about liking how something has eyes.

The Academy is really quiet, which is also kind of weird. Usually it's full of people and Tony has a tendency to shout things like, "Time to be the best!" or talking about how great the cheese fridge is. Basically it's all weird.

Has anyone seen or heard from Viv?

It's World Penguin Day tomorrow. I don't actually have that on my calendar, I just saw this floating around.

I'd paste a Delibird on there too but I've only spent ten minutes at home today and it sounds like too much effort.

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. 17th, 2018


I thought it was supposed to be more back to the quiet side of things after we got back. I'm guessing that it's going to be closer to what's going on at the school. It's kind of nice to have my room here. Especially since it's And having work is nice, too.

Maria, do you think it's too late to apply for the Fall semester? Also what am I supposed to study here? Apparently Inhuman Biology is not part of any curriculum.
