This place is real. I didn't think this place was real.

Scott, Jean, are one of you still here? Or anyone that knew me from the first time? They won't let me leave without a guardian.

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.

So I'm finally delighted with the reno we've been doing on the the first floor since our little dragon-shaped hole last month. So let's have a little housewarming party on Friday to show it off. 6 pm, the Aerie?

Okay, I wasn't sure who exactly to approach with this and since I know you three the best, here we are.

I don't know if it's too late in the year or not, but is there any possible way I can get the music teacher back? Things are probably going to be a little differently taught than before, considering my sight. I just need to do something rather than sit around and do menial things and mooch off of other people who are willing to help me out.

I did the stupid thing that I'm assuming at least some people have done before and googled my own name. I guess a wikipedia page is better than news articles labeling you as a wanted fugitive. But still super weird.

I ended up looking more into the von Struckers and what they did in other worlds, which I really should not have done. But yeah, based on all of that and my families lineage, thanks for agreeing to sign me out of that place when I got here. Now I can't say I'd blame you if you didn't.

With all the start ups and apps aimed at young professionals, someone should invest in one that connects stress bakers to stress eaters. It's an obvious partnership.

(Don't worry, I'm not either. Actually I came up with that during a grueling break reading in the sunshine.)

I feel like we haven't done anything in a while.

This lock up is a hell of a lot more easy going than the last one.

They told me I wasn't allowed to leave until I found a guardian. Except my parents aren't here. They also said the X-Men are here and that posting about it wasn't going to cause a shit-storm.

I'm Lauren Strucker. I arrived a few hours ago and I'd really like to not be locked up here any longer. How do I find a new guardian?

For those that knew her, Cassie has been sent back to her world.

Last night, my daughter arrived in this world. Alive. Unscathed. She has no memory of what happened to her and her mother. I would, for now, prefer to keep it that way and will be seeking a way to block any mentions of my world on the internet from any searches she makes on her tablet. I have not spoken to many of you here and I am perfectly content to keep it that way, but Nina is a great deal more inquisitive and outgoing than I am.

So should you find yourself speaking to her, please refrain from scarring her or you will find yourself in a regrettable position.

We now live in the boathouse.

With Nina's arrival, I find myself trying to explain who Anka Irene is to her. Through my admittedly lacking explanation of other worlds and other Eriks, she understands that she has a sibling.

Would it be too much to ask if Nina can come along to meet Anka Irene the next time I see her?

You know, I suppose there's worse places that a portal could've taken me to other than Texas. Like the Badoon homeworld. Or the Shi'ar.

Either way, Texas nearly isn't as bad, I guess. The heat's a bitch, but that's pretty much it.

Anyway, my name is Lorna Dane, and I'd like to know a good place to get a drink around here, since I'm going to be here for awhile.

[Filtered to parents/guardians of young children]

Okay. I know I talked about forming a parents group, and now that I've had some time, I'm actually able to put together a clear plan for it. With school finishing up for the summer, now's the perfect time to at least start getting together so that we can start planning out activities for the summer.

I'm thinking that we could have meetings once or twice a week during the summer, maybe one where we meet up at someone's house, and then another one where maybe we go out and do an activity together as a group. During the school year, maybe cut it down to every other Saturday, depending on what works best for the group. As life happens, you don't have to come to every single get together, but whatever you can do is fine. This is for the benefit of both adults and children. The children have kids their own age to interact with, and the adults can start forming a support group, especially since there are a few of us with infants.

I'm willing to offer up our house as a meeting location, but we could probably rotate between different houses, that way one person isn't constantly hosting meetings. If you don't have the space for it, that's perfectly fine.

I've made a form for people to fill out, that way I can get a head count of who to expect, and we can start getting closer to making this an actual thing.

[Filtered to parents/guardians of young children]

I've noticed that there's quite a few of us with young kids in the infant to preteen range. I know that some of us have been here for awhile, but some, like my family, haven't been here very long, and as a result, don't really have much in terms of friends for our children, or a support group of other parents.

Has anyone ever talked of maybe forming a parents and kids group? Like, the parents hang out and talk about our lives or whatever, while the kids all play together? We meet up at maybe different houses or go on outings together, like to museums and the zoo, have cookouts, things like that. Maybe parents who've been around for awhile can give tips to other Displaced parents, and our kids have a group of friends that are in similar situations to theirs.

If other parents wanted to, I certainly wouldn't object to forming a group like this. It'd be nice to have a support group of other parents and it would be nice for my kids to have some friends around their age who are also in the same situation that they are.

So, I've been keeping busy in the past few weeks since Roy and Lia and managed to secure a place for a potential clinic. The building is in the works right now, but I'm hoping to continue to pursue my dream of opening up my own clinic. Martha Jones was supposed to co-manage with me, however, she too disappeared last month.

I'm definitely going to be looking for techs, nurses, and some doctors to employ and maybe a co-manager, too, but I'll let you know when to pass word around or apply for the job. Still got some ways to go before it's completed.

For those of you who have helped me with the finances up till this point, thank you.

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.

post-dated to Monday, April 9th at 9am.

We're back in Tumbleweed, but as some of you may have figured out, the town is completely different than it was the last time we were here. There's an airport now, which my car navigation system pointed out, and it's on the opposite side of town from Fort Neill.

Of course, that's not the most startling or disturbing difference. Fort Neill is a graveyard, and I mean that in the kindest sense of the world. It was locked up when I got there. Got my way in to find a dusty military facility that has not been used in quite some time, and it looks like it didn't happen on purpose.

The military is dead, and I don't mean they cleared out. I mean there is an entire facility full of the skeletal remains of whoever was in there when something happened. That something appears to have been some sort of [...] feeding, possible animal attack. There are definite teeth marks on these bones, and the state of decomposure... it's not new. At least a decade, maybe more so it's not as horrendous as it could be to see.

I have not turned the power on; I don't want to disturb the bodies more than I already have, but I'd like for anyone interested in helping to come down to the facility to move these bodies — telekinesis, magic, or just standard issue gloves — so that we don't taint the bodies with our DNA. We'll have to keep the power off until that happens, and then there should be video monitoring we can check to see what happened, check databases and logs to see if there's any evidence of what might have happened here.

I'm leaving this open so we can discuss what to do. After scrounging around the base, I haven't seen any paperwork or IDs for those of you who arrived on the cruise so that's something we should work on immediately to get people in the system so they can work, get IDs, and whatever else they need. We'll need people who can make IDs and people who can get into the necessary systems for government agencies to make sure the back-end is taken care of in anyone wants to cross state or country lines.

And a warning to some of you who worked at the military before: yes, we knew some of these people if the names on the uniforms check out.

I got this adorable lil one following me around the last three islands I've been to so I think we're gonna be calling him a member of the family.

I reckon he's a fan of the electromagnetic fields me and Anka Irene keep putting out. Ain't too sure what he's called though.

[Senior X-Men]
And alright. I need to admit that I'm a lil in over my head here and need suggestions on how to teach my daughter that she can't go creating or destroying whatever she would like to at the drop of a hat.

She seems to be picking up on the cues when I ain't all that happy that she decided to go making things outta thing air or disappearing things. But that kinda only works as an after the fact thing. Not a preventative one. Ten month olds ain't the easiest to try and reason with though.

I want to give my thanks to all the medical professionals and volunteers that came together and assisted in the medbay during this time. You all worked hard to keep the passengers stable with limited resources, and I'm sure a great number of people here are grateful for the help. And for whoever's ear I screamed into when the robo-doc near us sprung back to life, I'm sorry. You won't be experiencing ringing in the ears anymore than a few minutes after that.

Also, just a general thank you to everyone who has been helping out. This is probably old hat to you guys, but it's rare form for someone who just got here recently, and has lived her life in Gotham, the city where everyone is in it for themselves only.
