I didn't know what I was getting into when Sherlock suggested we watch the DVDs of 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes'. Admittedly nervous and a little embarrassed at first, I never really expected to actually enjoy the episodes. They were very well produced, and the stories are similar enough to what we experienced in our universe to be recognizable, but the differences were fascinating and even entertaining. The actor who played the lead, Jeremy Brett, has such energy that his portrayal reminded me of my own Sherlock. Especially how sexy he gets when he's working on an investigation. I can't say I like David Burke's mustache, but besides that detail, watching somebody who is supposed to be me in another universe wasn't as disturbing as I thought it would. I'm not sure if I'd ever want to watch the show that actually depicts our lives back home, though. Has anybody here done that before?

The exciting outcome of watching the DVDs is that it's inspired Sherlock to take up detective work again. Since he got here, he'd been working strictly as a lab assistant at the college, while I work as a doctor at the local hospital, which is all and well but nowhere as fulfilling as detective work. Since Christmas, we've already picked up two cases, - frankly ones that Sherlock would've likely dismissed as boring back home, but here received with gusto. And since we're going back on cases, I'll be updating my blog again.

With the land rover that Santa brought me for Christmas, we're looking forward to picking up more cases outside of Tumbleweed.

Hey, so Frank brought this up about a week ago and I ended up running with it, with some nudges. There's a need for a veteran's group that caters to the Displaced. We didn't have one, now we do.

Logan's Gym, Sunday evenings around 7 PM. Come when you want, leave when you want. Whatever we talk about stays in group and we leave the place how we found it. Bring a few bucks when you can, but that's not mandatory, and we can maybe even start serving some coffee and food too. I'll cover it for the first couple of weeks.

We got range to use the equipment too, but it's "You break it, you buy it."

So, yeah. Show up if you need it.

If a really dangerous criminal came through the portal, he wouldn't be released, right? They'd keep him detained?

Happy Christmas, everybody. And if you don't celebrate the holiday, I hope you're having a good day.

Has anybody been to the Christmas light show in Tumbleweed Court? Tonight's the last night and I'm wondering whether it's worth leaving the coziness of the flat to go see them.

Never introduced myself. I'm Frank. Been here almost a month.

There a veteran's group of any kind here?

We gotta talk about school, kid.

Got some questions to ask about the school you run, as a guardian.

I have to say one of the biggest problems with America is the difficulty in sharing extremely specific Welsh jokes. There might be an entire two people who'll find this as funny as I do.

So, dimensions and portals and ... alternate worlds. That's a thing now? I'm not sure I buy all this.

But fine. Quarantine, for two days. What's the recommendations for TV?

This is motherfucking bullshit and if I don't get out of here in the next ten minutes, I'm going to tear the door down.

If you aren't completely sure you can follow the rules skim through the network to find one of the people offering to take them off your hands. I've name-dropped the military base to rent a room at the community centre for a screening of Gremlins tonight at 6pm. They will attempt to break the rules. The consequences are different for each one.

Sunlight: they'll die, kind of messily.
Water: they'll multiply.
Food at night*: they'll turn into gremlins like the gif there, which are dangerous and chaotic.

*Midnight until the sun comes up the next morning, but it's probably wise to make the cut off more like 9 or 10pm.

Attention celebrators of Bonfire Night! I will be hosting Bonfire night at Ronan's farm, and I've been told the go-karts will be running that night as well.

Johnny Storm has graciously agreed to light our bonfire with himself, and I would love it if we had one or two magical types (I'm looking at you Albus) could ensure that the fire itself won't scorch or burn anything in the area. We're not looking to start a brush fire that destroys the town. If there's anyone magical or fireworks-inclined that wouldn't go amiss either.

The only thing missing is a chill in the air and a hot apple cider. (Rest assured there will be beverages and snacks. Volunteers for this would be lovely as well.)

You're all in a tizzy about Halloween parties, but what I really want to know is who is hosting this year's Bonfire?

I went wandering around the town today to do a little more exploring and ended up landing myself a job. You're looking at the newest shooting instructor over at Trigger Town.

Uh Hi.

It's Prompto's birthday tomorrow, and he doesn't think I'm planning anything. It'd be cool if you guys could swing by before he gets home from work? [Address] Just for pizza and beer, nothing huge. You don't need to bring anything big unless you want — he's just going to be happy people are around.

Anyway, yeah. Thanks?.

Two questions. Regarding the chatter is what I'm reading about common, and where's a good place for tea?


This place is very strange, nothing like The Shire.

There's not much plant life around here, is there? That's terribly sad. I was hoping to see more gardens around. Thankfully I was shown how to use this, I am very grateful! My name is Violetta Took.

[ooc: Violet dressed up as a regular Hobbit, but since Violet is a nerd, she went by Violetta Took before the transformation. Anyone who is friends with Violet is welcome to have taken her in/shown her how to use the network and such!]

Blog Post #1
I'm never going to say 'nothing happens to me' ever again.

The place where I was taken from was an island called Preya, located somewhere, probably in another dimension. You were invited to come so you could 'start a new life', but once you accepted, you were not permitted to leave, even if you changed your mind. Those who were determined to escape were deemed 'rebels', and the government, whose leaders we never saw, were trying to catch and imprison any rebellious behavior. Not as ominous as mysterious vortex that sucks you away and brings you to Tumbleweed.

It was a big surprise to find my London apartment here. If it's a duplicate, it's a damn good one. Everything is there, down to Sherlock's secret stack of cigarettes. The flat feels empty without him

Looking for a job tomorrow. I understand the hospital is hiring?

Please, could somebody tell me, is there a Sherlock Holmes anywhere? He's my boyfriend, and we were separated when that vortex thing brought me here.
