Thanks to a gift from the portal, it looks like the plans for my clinic will be up and running sooner than expected, so it seems like a good time as any to put out a help wanted ad here.

In Vein Clinic will be opening in council 8 within the month of June. I'm looking for at least two more licensed physicians in family medicine, along with RNs, LPNs, and secretarial staff. I wanted to put this offer to those of us who are displaced first before looking elsewhere. While I do want our people to feel safe coming here for any treatment, I do want to let you know that the clinic will be open to all populations in the area.

That being said, if anyone would be willing to do magical wards of some kinds to our place and a designated room for some of us that have to hide our true identities, that would be much appreciated. I'd just like a list of people right now who I can reach out to when the clinic is completed next month.

I read a flyer that said a carnival's coming to town, and the first thing that came to my mind was a novel by Ray Bradbury.

So, basically if the carnival's run by a man named Mr Dark, who promises to fulfill your secret desires, then stay the hell away.

OOC: backdated to yesterday near the beginning of the power swap
Kate just [...] collapsed. She's breathing, and her heart's beating, but she's non-responsive. I can tell something weird is going on with people switching powers, so I'm not sure taking her to the hospital is the best idea - are any of you available?

And America, if you still can make portals, we might need a lift to the doctor.

Looking at the internet we really wouldn't have any problems if someone found pictures of our Pokemon online. There's heaps of drawings and art of what they could look like in real life and some of it's really, really good. And then some of it's really bad, and some just looks like it came out of someone's nightmare. (This is Gizmo. The little black ones.)

I'm sort of working on designing a backpack that converts to a harness bag I can wear if I morph wolf. It was okay not being able to carry anything at home because it was 2002, no one had phones, but it would have been really useful in the ports on the cruise. It wouldn't work if I wanted to fly or swim but I spent a lot more time on foot anyway.

I saw you talking about making Pokemon treats. I've been playing with a recipe for kibble that's based on what we fed some of the injured animals my dad got at his rehab centre, I can show you if you want. My school load is pretty big so I wouldn't really have time to be making enough for other people as well anyway.

For those who had offered to help look for my Rockruff, thank you, I appreciate it a lot, but it looks like he finally decided to make his way back home -- after evolving. Which I thought had been the case because I read it online when we got here, but still, I was worried.

Now, I have a Pokemon version of a wolf in this world. If only Artemis's Hunters could see me now!

Monday was my birthday, and I celebrated quietly with Sherlock. Dinner, then we went to see Casablanca in the park. Sherlock then got me a really cool gift, a Canon AE-1, one of those older cameras that still uses film. I used to have one a long time ago, but it broke when I moved to college. Sherlock also converted one of the upstairs rooms into a darkroom. I've been messing around by taking pictures of the flat, and I finally got around to developing some of them this weekend. Here are a few of them.

Working shifts at the fort has been quieter than I expected. I end up spending most of my time cleaning up and trying to make the place look even remotely hospitable. Hope that's alright with the rest of you who work the ward there. Medicine in this time is so primitive, I'm not even sure how you all practice.

I'm thinking of seeing about taking on some shifts at the hospital as well, though I'd probably come into contact with actual patients there. That's the one downside to practicing medicine.


I'm pleased to announce that my new business, Keepsakes has been launched. Currently, it is an online store, but should you be interested, you may make an arrangement with me to have a tour of our local warehouse. We sell items that were brought from Agrabah, Camelot, Arendelle, and Alola. Furniture, lamps, rugs, jewelry, chachkies. I've been aggressively promoting, and have already made a substantial sale to a business in Dallas. We have ambitions to to expand by investing profits into more items, and in the future, opening a storefront in Tumbleweed.

In addition to Keepsakes, I am offering my services as a piano tutor. For the past few months I've been given private lessons to Padmé Amidala, who has proven to be an excellent pupil. Interested parties may inquire herewith.

Alright. I need everyone to level with me.

Most embarrassing video on youtube about you or doppleganger-you. Go.

Cuz this? What is this lady even doing with my voice? What is this song?

My brother [...] Mycroft Holmes is recovering from a dementor attack. Thought his friends associates ought to know. Hopefully the rest of you faired better, but in the event that you lost a limb, do share. His flat is cluttered and boring.

It's bad. He's reminicising.

Attention Fellow Displaced:

For those of you literally fresh off the boat, you may come to [address] to pick up your new documentation. Driver's license, social security card, and whatever else you might need are all ready and waiting for you. If you are a minor, your guardian will need to be the one to pick up your paperwork.

Unfortunately my suggestion that some of the more famous or ridiculous names be replaced with something much more common, Severus Snape being both famous and ridiculous for Sylvester Snipes which is a much, much better name for example, was overruled. Only your actual names will appear on the documentation.

A number of folks here have worked very hard to replace whatever government presence there was and help get things back up and running. For the documentation you may thank Smart Loki, Quentin Quire, Jo Harville, Matt Murdock, Ianto Jones, Rick Jones, Integra, Scary Alucard, Jason Todd, Slightly More Attractive Loki, Kurama, Pidge Gunderson, Sam Winchester, Tim Drake, and Ezekiel.

Thank you.

If this was a tv show they'd be starting a new episode with a fade in, hold, fade out DAY TWO written on the screen.

I like being back in my room though. I spend so much time climbing around in here. It's probably really good rehab actually. Jinx has been exploring it too, it's funny to watch her hopping between bars and grabbing ropes. She's a cool pet. And at least looking after her is something I can do that won't be dangerous if my leg or arm seizes up or something.

Instead of catching a pokemon, I feel more like a pokemon caught me.

image, unfiltered )

For the past couple of days I've been catching pokemon and releasing them after Sherlock had a chance to look at them. I didn't plan on keeping one, but while eating breakfast this morning, this little guy showed up a short distance away, and kept staring at me. I started tossing him berries from my plate, and slowly he hopped closer, until he was right at my feet. When I finished eating, and got up to wash, he started following me and he's been following me ever since. I had one last pokeball, and once he saw it, he started jumping up and down and flapping his wings - I think he wanted me to catch him.

So, basically now I have to go and buy a bunch of supplies for him before we head out, today.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around this.

Portal. Alternative universe. Cruise ship docked at a tropical island. Pokemon.

Not entirely convinced this isn't some weird dream, but alright. I'll play along and see how it goes.
