presents for Kamala )

Sep. 20th, 2018


You know what I discovered in this last week? I can't lie. Someone asks me a question, and suddenly I'm talking about everything on my mind. They just want a "I'm good. How 'bout you?" Instead, I have given total strangers a full rundown on how much I miss my wife because she's living in another world. Not even another state. Another world. Y'know. Just a completely sane thing to hear from a total stranger. Guess what, total stranger, I was Spider-Man back before I lost all my powers.

This is a bad idea.

I don't know why I started to write.

It was vaguely funny in my head because irony and self-depreciation is my jam, but now I'm writing because I can't stop writing.

Man, I really miss having powers. I'm happy for what I have, but I would sign up in two seconds flat to

Nice game you got here. Would be a shame if something happened to it.

Knock knock!

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?


T minus three weeks until I turn 18!!

Well, 22 days, actually, but whatever. Close enough.

FYI, Avengers fam, I'm not necessarily asking for a huge celebration and everything because I can probably see Sam being a little too distraught and going "why are you growing up, stahp that", but I wouldn't mind a small little celebration at home or anything like that. The very first two months of school are probablyyyyy not a good time to decide to take a vacation to Pakistan or something like that. Plus, um, kind of need cash for that.

HOWEVER! If anyone a. wants to teleport me to Poconos, PA, and b. wants to join me, there's a lantern lighting festival that I always wanted to see but I never got a chance to do because my dad used to think it was a waste of time and "only white people do that". >_>

Anyone else just a little disappointed they missed out on this one?

Aug. 14th, 2018


I gotta say, as far as portals shenanigans go, this one might be my favorite.

Can anyone out there beat jingoistic water foul?

Jul. 22nd, 2018


Someone who isn't human come and fight me.

Jul. 11th, 2018


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.

Jul. 9th, 2018


I'm gonna tell you right now. Whoever toilet papered the Avengers place will be charged with vandalism when I catch you. Make no mistake: I will catch you.

Jul. 5th, 2018


Don't assassinate anyone today.

I forgot people made so much colourful food in America.

Jul. 2nd, 2018


Quick PSA! If you have pets and you're looking for a way to keep them calm, have at it with relaxing music. It works on my little fur-baby just fine.

I don't remember how 4th of July was held here last year (I think it was around the time when the portal decided to make me disappear and then reappear later), but I know my favorite past time with family was always going to a fireworks festival in Jersey City and watching the NYC display from the Jersey shoreline. Anyone wanna go? We should totally make plans to at least go see the festivals before the fireworks, for the pups.

Jun. 29th, 2018


And if anyone wants to celebrate my birthday on Wednesday, we're gatecrashing the other one.

Jun. 27th, 2018


Johnny Storm is THE BEST! He gave me TWO autographs AND a selfie. Victor is gonna be soooooooooo jelly. I CAN FEEL HIS JEALOUSY THROUGH THE UNIVERSE!

[Filtered to the teens/younger people]
HELLO! I'm Molly! I don't know how many of us under the age of 18 there are, but I just wanted to say hello and make friends I guess if I'm stuck here and all my other friends aren't here. It's lame.

Jun. 22nd, 2018


Help me, I'm seventeen and I have no idea what I want to do in college. I mean, the obvious answer back home that some of my friends who have read my stories would give me is "Creative Writing, duh!" But, I can just hear my dad's voice when I start thinking of college, and his voice is usually telling me to go for something practical and "promising". Engineering? Yes, do that. Or accounting! Or computer science! Or medicine because we'll always have those to fall back on even if half the jobs in the world get taken over by robots!

And then I land in a new world back in NYC (I swear to god, I feel like I've been a portal refugee and stuck at 16 for the past 4 years), and thought "oh, hey, a chance to do anything I want without criticism!" And my mind just... blanks out. This may have been a lot easier if I was really back home in Jersey City with my family.

Shredder wanted to show his love and appreciation for everyone this month! I mean, he does still show it all the other months, just through slobbery kisses.

I've never been more excited for the end of Ramadan this Thursday, do you have any idea how rough it is to stay hungry on longer summer days? WORST! If I was all hangry at you (including my housemates) at some point this past month, I'm sorry. It's not me, it's just my stomach, and I'll be back to normal next week.

[Extended Avengers Family]
ooc: I'm being liberal with the definition. If your character is an Avenger, honorary Avenger, or family/close-friend-who-might-as-well-be-family of an Avenger, they are included in this.

Informal team dinner on the lawn at the Barton farm tomorrow. BBQ pulled chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled corn-on-the-cob, coleslaw, mac and cheese, salad. BYOB if you're drinking, but remember there's kids around, so maybe go light on that. You can bring any pot luck stuff you want.

Just figured it'd be good to get together.

Jun. 5th, 2018


You ever like.. look back at stuff you made or write years ago and just go "EW, I did this?" even though you remember at that time, you were super proud of it though you were about 12 years old so you would have been proud at pretty much anything?

Yeah, that's me. I've been spending a few days catching up on all the fanfic I used to write on my old laptop that came through with me, and dear god, people actually gave me upvotes for these on sites?? I felt the need to purge everything and start all over again.

So, I headed to the library to find inspiration, maybe write something with a more dystopian universe with monarchy twist to it and I found a book series called The Selection by Kiera Mass. I couldn't put it down because it was like, one of those train wrecks you had to keep reading because you hoped things would get better, but it didn't because even though the dystopian universe had some screwed up sexist laws, the main character was way too caught up in some love triangle to really try to push for some change.

And as I kept reading it, I realized why my crappy past writing got upvotes: crappy writing will still get made into books. SIGH.

Anyway, rant over, looking for fanfic ideas, but don't be weird and give me stuff to write about people who are already here. Unless you want something written about yourself.

No. No. I don't want this face.

Is there someone out there missing their ability to [...] turn into other people?

On this fine Friday the Thirteenth, some of you may find yourself wondering what to do with your free evening. Here at the Camp, we have a lot of space and a wide movie selection, so here's an open invitation to come and hang out for a low key welcome back get together. There'll be swimming, movie watching (theme to be decided by attendees), and a bonfire for singing and toasting marshmallows. We'll order some pizza, but if you want to bring some snacks, food, or drinks (non-alcoholic please) over, feel free.

I guess the party officially will start 6ish, but you can show up whenever you like.

Apr. 9th, 2018


I forgot people don't see very far. I used to know that. It felt strange that I could even though I didn't know why. I thought  diagnostic error. Mismatched expectations of performance. The dog is here too. I'll have to put some stairs back, or some boxes he can jump up. It's not good moving to different places so suddenly. It makes me feel [...] not right.

Apr. 7th, 2018


I was trying to figure out which one to keep but I think I'm okay with having just Shredder despite him not being a Pokemon (or is he??? ;)). I love the ports and the chance to go them and all but. I actually miss Planet Earth and the U.S. in general despite all its xenophobic glory. I didn't get a chance to look at the holiday calendar for this year which sucks because I'm already feeling pretty displaced in a place that has practically no Desi population. I don't even know when's Eid. Is it next month? Tomorrow? Did it already pass?! Did Ramadan pass??

Sorry to be the debbie downer but had to get that off. I'm just seriously missing home, particularly Jersey because I know my older brother, even if he says he's above getting excited for places like this, would have absolutely loved being here and probably tried to take all of his Pokemon back home with us.

Apr. 5th, 2018


yo did anyone lose their keys?

also my band is playing tonight. sundown. be there or be... not there.

Apr. 1st, 2018


Does anyone have metallic paint?

Would any of you like the contents of my basket? I would like to keep the basket itself, but the candy is of no use to me.

I have also prepared several breakdowns based on Michael's report that can provide helpful insight into emergency scenarios. Using my holographic projector, I can run these fight simulations to target areas of weakness and team strategy. Would anyone be interested?

I am aware that the timeframe I came from is removed significantly by how long you have spent here separate from me, building new friendships and experiences. From my perspective we were building a close friendship that I valued, but time and distance from your perspective may have changed things. It would be unfair of me to presume that we can simply pick right back up from where I left you both, without knowing if you even feel the same. Now that things have started to settle down again after the attack, I would like to take the time to catch up with the both of you and hear about your experiences here.

when can I leave??

i bought a postcard with a lone palm tree

thinking you might miss me

but they said you wouldn't even notice me gone

hey is there a list of what rooms people are staying in??

Calling all engineers. Especially you Tony Stark.

So, we've been on this boat for awhile. Away from our workshops, away from some of our bigger projects, and we all know the dangers of idle hands.

With that in mind, I'm putting together a little competition. A good old race. Winner gets bragging rights and a special, super secret prize that my dear friend Rhodey is setting up.

Now I'm sure you're wondering where the engineering comes into this race. Well, you won't be running the race yourself. Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to build a contraption/vehicle/robot to go through the obstacle course that'll be set up in the Climbing Course area. Anyone who cants to participate can pick up your box of materials you'll have to use on Friday at 1:30pm. For the sake of level playing field and making this a real challenge, you can only use that box of materials in the creation of your 'racer'. You'll have the entire weekend to craft your masterpiece before we start the race process 4pm on Sunday. Good luck!

Nice as this party was... One day, someone will throw a come as you are just have a blast party. No fancy dresses or heels.

I have not forgotten about your hand. It's sitting in my living area, staring at me as if to say, "I need to be used! Please set up a time and date with Bill Weasley to schedule the implant surgery!"

So here I am! We can make a tentative date until we know when we're heading to a new port, and if that happens then we can shove it off till after.

Preferred times? Cold feet? Let's get this over with?

Mar. 16th, 2018


WHO: All of Displaced
WHEN: Saturday, March 17th, starting at 7pm and going well into the night.
WHERE: Explorer Lounge, Atrium, the casino across the lounge, wherever the party spills over to
WHAT: Spring Ball 2018, hosted by Princesses Allura and Zelda
WARNINGS: Maybe, maybe not?

[attached Boomerang picture of her twirling in this dress]

I dare my mom to say that I didn't keep up with my family's customs while parading out in another universe, going on adventures and occasionally fighting bad guys when they decide to take your boat.

Nah, but she knows about me being Ms. Marvel. She always knew and I thought I was being sneaky.

Anyway, I'm officially deeming this the best port ever, because I'm reliving my childhood Disney fantasy, even though there wasn't many brown-girl Disney princesses to choose from. I'm just a little sad I didn't actually get to meet an Aladdin or Jasmine. Or the Genie. But the carpet rides are AWESOME. 12/10 would come back here again.

Mar. 5th, 2018


Attn. Avenger House peeps or anyone else who plans on making the trip to Agrabah with me:

I'm gonna need all the help carrying back the shalwar suits I can find there, and the amount I plan to buy means I would have to transform myself into a moving van to bring them back! Note: not what Princess Jasmine wears. These are, umm, more covering. But still gorgeous, and I'm lacking the time and means to go shopping back in Texas!

(And fyi, I don't care how amusing you think that will be; I'm not transforming myself into a moving can.)

[Avengers Mansion people]
Do we need a distraction, and is it gonna run more violent or more (non-violent) fun?

Feb. 21st, 2018


Another space portal. Let's not do that again.

Sentient nursebots, huh? I know what it looks like, but this one's not on me. Seriously, though. Someone has dramatically upped their LMD game. What are we talking, here? Thing 1 and Thing 2 are not particularly forthcoming. Programming could use some work.

So tell me, who else is on the guest list for this involuntary pleasure cruise? And is there scotch?

Feb. 20th, 2018


Heeeeey, you know what's also awesome and fun to drink around here??

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM MILKSHAKES! Funky milkshake parties also need to be a thing, and my birthday is too far away into the futures, so this should happen, like.. right now. Whose birthday is coming up??

Feb. 18th, 2018


And in this month's Shredder Update...

Someone was upset with me that I decided not to take him out to this world like I did in Atlantis. So, I had to spend some time away from Middle Earth to appease his temper. It's just kinda hard to explain to a dog, that you don't want him to be mistaken for eagle food out there, ya know.

[Attached video, pretend its a boat hallway]

Feb. 15th, 2018


As destinations go, Middle Earth has been pretty sweet so far.

I almost don't mind that I'm missing out on discounted Valentine's Day candy.

Feb. 14th, 2018


So, hey. I'm here. The Hulk is gone for now I've read up on the conversations people tried to have with the Other Guy, but to be honest, I can't remember any of it.

Middle Earth, huh?

So all medbay and no play makes Tony something something (that something being bored and happy for visitors). Which means I might be a little too nosey, so, anyways...

Paging everyone, does this look belong to some other universe that isn't the huge ass Marvelicious one:

(041) Anakin Solo

[Filter: Pidge, Kamala, & Amadeus]
I'm filtering you cause I noticed you were all willing to help with evacuations and Kamala (hi?) I don't know you at all, and Pidge we've only talked a few times, and Amadeus I know you're a bit older, but thanks for pointing out the arbitrary line man, so you've got like an honor filter here.

Basically, I'm kinda just reaching out to say hello, and to ask what kind of things you do at home, cause I was thinking getting to know some of my peers better might be a helpful idea if, which feels likely to be honest, we do end up in some sort of crazy situation.

So, Hey, so I'm Anakin Solo.

[Filter: Nico]
I miss I'm so restless.


Since we've mostly got our battle plans sorted I want to talk about evacuations as well. There's getting to be a lot of us and in a crisis things get confusing so knowing in advance what to do will go a long way to making sure it goes right.

• Almost all the time when an evacuation alert goes out there's not going to be time to do much except get to the lifeboats on Deck 6. You should probably check where they are at some point so you know where you're going.
• A lot of us have pets and I know no one wants to leave them behind. If they're out with you that's not much of a problem but otherwise you should pick one person per suite to go and grab them if there's enough time. We have to be realistic that sometimes there won't be, and I'm not just saying that for everyone else - I always have at least my budgies that are confined to their cage and sometimes my Eevee stays behind too.
• Relatedly, Rogue suggested that it might be a good idea to pack a go bag for emergencies so that if there is a little more time you can grab it instead of trying to figure out in the moment what to bring. You shouldn't need to worry about food and things, so it's better to pack light so we don't take up too much space. A few clothes, medications, things you really don't want to leave behind.

Now the important bit, not leaving anyone behind. We need a way to know who's already boarded a lifeboat and who hasn't, which Tony should be able to do using the bracelets. (I'm assuming?) We also need a couple of people for each floor who can do a quick sweep to make sure everyone's left and to make sure the lifeboats are boarded efficiently. You will most likely be the last people to leave, so keep that in mind. For floors 1-4 and 7-10 that'll probably be banging on doors, for the others a quick check of all the public areas. Then when that's done, get to Deck 6 to help load.

I've only evacuated towns and cities before so please weigh in on any of this ^ if you think there's a better way of doing things. And if you want to be a floor monitor or floor captain or whatever, sign up here. 18+, minors should go directly to the lifeboats. Everyone else make sure you know who's responsible for the floors you spend most time on.

adding: Since each accommodation deck has their own lifeboat, based on Anakin's experience it's best to stick to what's been assigned. People responsible for clearing the matching floors will also have the final call on when to launch, even if someone's missing. So, make sure you have a decent idea of who should be there and make note of whether any of them are clearing public decks and can be expected to take a little longer. Tech, I'd still like a way to check people off as they board lifeboats if we can so we know if anyone hasn't turned up. The way people come and go it's going to be more reliable than memory.

Other things people have pointed out
• Make sure your floor coordinators know who's in charge of fetching pets so they can expect who'll be around
• There was talk about swimming lessons for anyone who doesn't know how which I would definitely recommend, having literally been marooned on a Caribbean island
• Gansey's going to check with the robots to see if there's a way to teach some people to row. We do have a couple people with water powers which would be the ideal but let's try not to rely on it.

    It has come to our attention that school is mandatory for those under 17. School takes place from 9am-1pm Monday through Friday when the ship is at sea. Any student who does not attend classes will not be allowed to exit the ship when it is docked.

    We've got access to the classrooms, teachers ready to go, and now just need to know which of you require school and which subjects you need covered.

    If you attended the EPS I already know your schedules but please check in on this post so I know you are here.

    If you attended anywhere else, please sign up here as a new student and let us know what courses you need.

    Stating the obvious aside: we've made another jump. Some of you remember (and would like to forget) the Prettiest Star space cruise ship. This one is on water this time. From what I can tell, it's a luxury cruise ship. Most of what I've seen seems familiar to cruise ships on Earth, but who knows so make sure you're careful until we know exactly what we're dealing with.

    Check in on this post and see if your friends are here.
