I've been trying to locate where Malificent's been hiding, to no avail. However, I'm still trying.

If anybody is still in need of relief from their magically-induced nightmares, I'm offering a way to grant you a night of relief. It's little consolation in this madness, but it's something.

Bureau guards and official volunteers:

There's talk of moving kids outside of Tumbleweed, but we don't have complete data on whether or not she'd snatched anyone outside of here. Right now, I'm recommending patrols, particularly around school times. I want no one under eighteen walking to school alone. Parents, if you want a guard who has superpowers as a bodyguard, let me know. We'll assign someone.

If you're volunteering, note that I will be picking those with powers first. Maleficent has untold magical powers, and there is no telling what she's granted to the troll-like "people."
You up for some more shifts while I get some people out on the streets? Promise not to work you to death.
Need a favor. Can you drop into Cuba and let me know if one Mistress of Evil and her troll minions are there?

So, I'm kinda gonna be out casual patrolling a little more frequently when I'm not at the Bureau doing portal patrol. If anyone wants to join me - assuming you're cool with dealing with murder types - let me know?

Did anyone else have any...aggressive dreams last night?

I got a decent amount of money from the portal for Christmas, and managed to get some really good photography equipment. I'm going to start doing freelance photography work on the side. So, if anyone needs any pictures taken for anything, weddings, modeling, engagements, baby photos, or anything else you can think of, keep me in mind. I turned one of the spare rooms where I live into a makeshift studio, but I can do on location shoots as well. Rates are debatable. I can provide samples if needed.

Well I suppose this is better than death, but Texas? Really? Almost wonder if there's an angel version of Hell. Better than Iowa anyway.

For those who don't have someplace to go Thursday, or would rather grab a drink instead of celebrating, the Roadhouse'll be open from 5-midnight. I'll fix a few dishes, but you don't have to partake if you don't want.

Hi, I'm James Rogers. You own the Roadhouse, right?


Hey. I need a loan, probably a small one, but I'm not positive about that. I'll pay you back when I get my first paycheck, wherever that ends up coming from.

Job interview. Now I gotta go shopping.

So, now that Crowley's back, if anyone wants a crash course on how to defend yourself against my world's variety of demons, let me know. Also will do a refresher course for anyone who already knew the drill but hasn't had to think about it in a while. I always have extra holy water, salt, and pictures of devil's traps that you can use as a stencil for putting them anywhere, for anyone who needs them, as well as anti-possession amulets and tattoo designs. I also have the words to an exorcism and a recording of it that you can play on your phone, it works just as well that way.

Most importantly: don't make any deals. Period, end of story. If you run into any kind of trouble with him, please let me know immediately and I'll handle it.

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.

Sep. 9th, 2018


It is not yet my birthday, but I awoke to a little trinket that seems may be the start of advertising for a personal business.

Jo, my dear, it is wonderful and I appreciate it. I hadn't thought of a name, per se, but "Weasley's Car Repair" sounds like a good place to start!

Town has gone completely bonkers again. No one seems to think that the Paraguay happened. I tried to mention it at one of my meetings today, and they corrected me. "You mean the chemical spill?"

This is exhausting.

Letting people know that Harvey Specter disappeared.

[Private to Mary Crowley]
I hate to ask you this on Labor Day, but I really need your help. The Rodriguez case that Harvey's been working on goes on trial tomorrow morning, and there's no way it can schedule at such short notice. I need to familiarize myself with the case, but all of Harvey's notes are printed. Can you come over to the office later to read them to me? You'll get paid overtime.

[Private to Maya Lopez]
What would you say to a rematch?

I am very sorry for those who have lost people in this round of beeps. I know there are no words to say that'll make it better, and no telling who would leave tomorrow. But, I would like for us to spend as much time as possible together and I was wondering if, perhaps, this weekend, looking more at Sunday evening, you all may join me at the Burrow for a relatively early dinner?

I know we have birthdays in the family coming up, and so I believed Sunday is a good time for us to have dinner in case you have other plans for those birthdays. If you'd have me there, I would still love to celebrate with you. If you cannot make it Sunday, no hard feelings. I am always here regardless, if any of you want to pay your old man a visit.

You know, I'm pretty sure we were going to try for an upgrade from Texas, weren't we, my fellow Displaced? I'm not even picky this time. But I'm pretty sure we could manage closer to the ocean. Less heat. Infinitely less tumbleweed.

Though I'm liking the whole 48 hours being reduced to 4. Wondering if already having the vaccines cancels out getting them again though...

Can I get some crayons and paper though? 4 hours is still insanely long for three year olds.

[Scott Summers]
Sooo... any chance I still have my job?

And I need a couple of enrollment packets.

I'm sure someone here has experience with demolitions or arson?

Fuck fuck fuck. The hotel is here. FUCK.

I'm Eliot. I understand you've already met someone who shares a strong resemblance in name, face, and hopefully an excellent taste in vests and alcoholic beverages. Some of you have been here for some time, and I am hoping you can help me.

This isn't my first time being pulled into another world, or my second, or even third, or forth, and so on. Some of you have also been pulled into other worlds which may or may not have been purgatory like before ending up here. I'm trying to get some information on my friends? They might have mentioned a Hell Hotel? Hotel Kairos?

Paul Rovia, aka Jesus
Claire Novak
Gretel (yes, that one)
Judith Grimes
Rowena Ravenclaw

Just looking to see if anyone else made it out. Any information you might have would be deeply appreciated.

[Eliot's Homeworld(s)]
So, hello. I've just spent the last two years in a semi-sentient, murderous hotel. How're things?

[Quentin Coldwater]
Jesus fuck, Q. Except not literally. Are you my Q? Were you at the hotel? Please tell me you made it out, too. I'm still in quarantine.

Half-price drinks at the Roadhouse tonight, in honor of those sent back. Feel free to drop by.

[Harvey Specter]
Hey, I could use a hand on the legal/paperwork side of things. Do you have time for me to come by or can I set up an appointment?


I'm sure there will be very polarized thoughts about this.

Damon Salvatore has been sent back home. If that's where we end up.

Okay, I still don't like this, and I still don't approve of leaving home. But I have been told that this is the best method to work out what is what.

I'm Parker. I don't like this. But I'm here.

Who knows how to run a business? I need tips.

Jul. 22nd, 2018


So it seems people are pretty eager to talk about spy games here. But maybe the more interesting question is, who of you guys do you think would win in a fight?

I would very much appreciate you all checking in. Unfortunately, Ginny is no longer with us in this world, and I'd like to know if anyone else is missing too.

Now that I'm more settled and know how to write on this thing, it is time that I find a job. I'm completely unsure of the types of jobs that they have these days. Most people I know work with their hands.

I'm very good with fighting and magic, all of which is nature based. I can transform into pretty much anything I desire, if that helps. Oh and at home I ran a bakery with my friends Vex and Pike, so I can do that too. Is there anything like that to do?

If anyone has any tips on how to combat loneliness, I would be happy to hear it. This is the longest I've ever been without at least one of my friends.

[Voice to Text]
You might've remembered the last time I wrote, I was complaining about a case I was assigned by the City. I didn't have to ask to be reassigned since I ended up leaving the town's law department to start my own private practice with Laurel and Harvey (and if that combination of names doesn't make you laugh, then you need to watch some old comedies). The case was turned over to somebody else, and I just heard that the guy decided to plead guilty to the charges.

Told this is how we're supposed to introduce ourselves. Eliot. Not a fan.

The kids turn seven on Wednesday so we are going to have a little party on Saturday. Come over. We'll have cake.

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,
Miss Charlotte Wells

Since it's come up a couple times lately, I figured I'd go ahead and just do a general announcement.

If you're new to town by way of the portal and you're 21+, you get your first drink on the house at the Roadhouse. We're located at [address] in council 7, same as City Hall and the EPS. If you're under 21, you can get a free appetizer.

We have a pool tables, a couple dart boards, an arcade game, and the best burgers in town, made by yours truly. If there's interest, I may add in a karaoke night or open mic night once a week.

When I made that bet about being able to talk kidnappers into releasing me, I did not account for science fiction. Rookie mistake.

netpost: sunday evening

[There is zero context given to the video Julia has posted to the displaced network. It appears to be vertically filmed cell phone footage of older Tony Stark shaving his goatee to this song. Tony's voice can barely be heard over the audio, but Julia added subtitles: "There's a very real possibility that underneath this is just another beard." She's trying to hold in her snickers behind the camera.]

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.

We've been arguing over what trees to plant in Nesbit Park for two hours. I haven't, because they're fucking trees, but I'm ready for this meeting to be over.

So there's a tradition for Memorial Day to do a great big barbecue. I was thinking I could host one for all of us on May 28th around noon. Bring the kids. We have a pool, a big swing set, lots of outdoor seating.

So I'm pretty sure I've got Hogwarts-style magic right now.

Bring your party hats, but not really. Just a lowkey birthday at the bar. Enjoy my purple confetti trick arrow. Buy him a beer. He's an old man.

Hey, Council Lady. Happy Birthday! Pick a night this week that you want to go out for some you time, or you and Charlie time, and I'll come over and watch the kids.

I posted on Julia's post that we could use more bartenders and servers, since George was sent home and Faith isn't the same one who was here before. I'm having Waverly and Lily come in tomorrow to interview and see how they do, if that's okay with you?

Zoo's still here. No one turned it into a Walmart. I know, you were all very concerned.


My aunt's house is here. I know we talked about maybe me living with you guys, but... My aunt gave me the house. And my parents took it away from me, then I had all that money from ... my "job" so I bought it back. It's kind of special. Maybe if I'm hang out late nights, I'll stay with you guys.

I love you guys, just so you know.

I guess some of us could use jobs now.

Some of you have been here longer and may be hiring?

I know it doesn't seem like much, and there are other larger concerns happening at the same time, but perhaps we could band together and at least get this small thing out of the way.

Look in the comments below.

HELP WANTED: For anyone running an organization (business, school, church, nonprofit, etc) looking for help. Change the subject to the type of position or skill you're looking for to make it easier for others to find. Job description and number of openings would be helpful.

JOB SEEKING: For all the job hunters out there. Change the subject to a position, skill or relevant education or work experience you have so others can help you network and find a position. Feel free to reply to someone and direct them to a Displaced or Local owned organization that might be a good fit.

OTHER: If you need a loan to start your own organization, or something else not covered by the help wanted and job seeking comments, put it there. Again, changing the subject to some kind of a summary will help others find it faster.

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.

Can I buy you a birthday drink? Maybe a birthday burger, if they have those on planet Pokemon? With or without other friends around, whatever you're feeling up for.

(ooc: added in later)
We're doing drinks for Jo's birthday tonight, 4pm. Picnic in the Wela Volcano Park. I'm fine gathering food and drink, might need some extra hands carrying it though, depending on how many of you are coming.

We'll probably head over to the beach afterward for the other birthday party around 6 or so, too.

Good news: my brace is off. Can't go around doing jumping jacks or backflips just yet but it's okay. Initially considered throwing it over the side of the boat, but now that it's got people's signatures on it, that decision has been re-thought.

Bad news: Cisco was going to throw me a party once that happened, and he's not here anymore.

Not really feeling the party as much, but I could use some help catching stuff on this island. Murdock, not you if you're going to tell me to get up at five in the morning again.
