I am still getting used to the modern fashions, but these dresses are cooler than my dresses from home here, though it is still uncomfortably warm. I don't mind school, I suppose. It's different from what Ma taught me. The numbers portion in particular seems to have gotten more complex.

I like getting to learn new music, however. It's different from what I usually play at the house, but it's nice all the same.


Network Post: Crowley

Hello, boys and girls, and Moose. Name's Crowley. King of Hell. 😈

Get your freaking out or pissing yourselves or impotently threatening me out of your systems while we're not face-to-face. Let's be civil. Have me round for tea or buy me a drink. I promise I won't bite unless I feel like it.

It seems that quite a few curses have lifted. When should I start being concerned that my nocturnal feline adventures might become permanent? Has anyone ever not recovered from some random madness brought on by this place?

It was definitely a warning. Maya Lopez just got pulled into the floor of the gym. Her dog is freaking out.

Fuck that portal.

Pyro's been sent back.

Otherworld fairies are, generally, Light. They don't usually do these kinds of balls, but there's always exceptions.

I'd recommend keeping "cold iron" on your person just in case. Do we have enough to go around? Or could we acquire enough for the Displaced?

And for god's sake, don't hit Pixie or you will answer to me.

How do people go to work with hangovers and function?? I've had one once and this is so much worse... How often do people get memory dumps around here? If it's more than once a year, I really feel for you. Really. This is so disorienting.

All I'm saying is: TGIF.

Just everything. Can we have a pity party tonight?

Has anyone else paid a visit to your home away from home? The place you come from, but in this universe?

My universe isn't all that different from this one, but my home certainly was. A lot can change in fifty years. Finally, the promise of Auferstanden aus Ruinen is fulfilled.

I'll be in Indonesia for the beginning of next month. Anyone have any suggestions for sights to see or food to try?

You have plans this weekend.

I have a pile of wood planks and siding if anyone wants it. It's from a small barn so it's probably pine or something.

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?

Unless you're a cartoon. Or Bobby.

Anyone have any job opportunities for former history professors? Looking for something adjacent, but willing to make a move in careers too.

Not Toon wrangling, though. Thanks.


There are new rules at the gym until this is over.

• No art supplies. If you can draw with it it's not coming in.
• If I even see the word Acme you're banned until everything's back to normal.
• No running on the second floor.
• If you break something you're fixing it. Repairs are always a million times faster in cartoons.
• New rules can be added at any time.

Shit, okay, so Tony had a memory upgrade and with it a horrible injury. Stab wound by a large blade, piercing all the way through his abdomen, coming out the other side. Internal organs are likely to be damaged. Tony's got his nanotech to close the wound and stop the bleeding, but he needs immediate medical attention. We don't want to take him to a local hospital, because how the hell are we going to explain this?

This is a real emergency, we need immediate help. I'm freaking out here

Holy shit, there's a fucking DRAGON in the middle of town. And not like Dolls's kind of dragon, a legit dragon.

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.

We've been approached by the Resettlement Bureau about setting up childcare for kids who are too young for our summer course. I know this is something we offer during the year--Carol, Tina, that's why I looped you in--do we have people who might be willing to step in and work with kids for this (in a paid capacity)? We can still use the school, or I supposed the barn we renovated initially for the EPS if that's preferred.

Napoleon, since you insist on following me everywhere I go with this international marketing campaign, some thoughts:

1. I'm pretty sure Gillette paid for that mustache.
2. If you can punch the air and make that noise I will pay you five whole dollars per fist to see it.

Edit: If you would like to see Napoleon attempt to punch the air and make sound effect noises, ten dollar minimum buy in. Proceeds go to a local no kill animal shelter. Comment to leave your pledge.

Spy types, roll call part 2.


This is a reminder and notice for new people of the class schedule at Wolverine's gym. My self-defense class on Saturday is specifically for people with a size disadvantage. If you're taller than about 5'6 it's probably not going to be very useful. There's gaps on several evenings and a lot of Saturday if anyone wants to teach anything else as well.

If you just want to join so you can train whenever you want it's $5 a month and there are forms at the front desk. There's a secure area that's been rated Hulk-proof for people with powers.

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.

For anyone who knew Scott McCall, he's been sent back home. Or whatever happens after you leave here.

Jonathon has never been to Canada and it doesn't seem right since he's an adopted Canadian wolverine. I think I might go up this weekend and show him where the old Howlett property should be. Maybe do some hunting. I'm taking the bike so I don't know how much storage I'll have coming back but if someone wants something I might be able to manage it.

The gym should be fine for a few days without me but if there is a problem that can't wait Betsy should be able to reach me. I won't have cell coverage except for parts of the trip and I'm not using my phone on the road. Probably I'll leave Friday morning.

I am to expect fireworks being blow off until your Independence Day celebration on fourth of July?

[The 100]

I propose we do a cookout. That's a thing people do here for any and all summer celebrations.


Might want to work on your initial greeting procedures.

Doubt the redhead is around 24/7 and your others are a little slow on the trigger.

Where's a good place here to learn how to ride a horse?


There are bridge trolls.

MAYDAY! MAYDAY! Someone is trying to force me into a foster home again and it’s not even stupid Captain America this time!! I

Chase? Nico? Karolina? Gert? Are you guys here???? Rufus and I need a place to go, so if you could show up so they can SHUT UP that would he nice.

Network post.

If this is some sort of new experiment it’s a bad one.

I can’t even imagine why in the world they’d be letting us talk to each other and use our powers.


My receptionist assistant left. I have one position for odd work around the gym. Answering questions, some cleaning, light maintenance, keeping things organised, occasionally taking membership forms. The keycards are working well to make it accessible 24/7 but I liked having me or Syd there during most of the active daylight hours.

The food and drink were really good, but the next party should be less formal again.

Jun. 1st, 2018


I got memories. So I'm not going to the ball tonight.

I had a pretty pink haired girlfriend back at the X-Mansion. Yukio. It was more purple, because if it was pink, Quentin would say some shit here.

Oh and Deadpool was there.

What is this celebration I keep seeing mentioned on this network?

Cass is gone. Looks like it's just me and Cassie in the house, now.

Going back to finish high school is depressing. And I still suck at English class, apparently.

Hey cute boy with the hot bike. Can we go riding?

I haven't harassed you in a while. It's tragic. How's work?

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.

My original plan for retirement involved working on the house and helping Laura with the kids. Since my pension didn't come through the portal with me and I'm currently doing the single dad thing, I figure I should pick up work where I can get it for now. Until I decide what to do with my life.

If you need some one-man construction done, let me know. My schedule's open.


If anyone leaves Pokemon behind when they disappear and no one takes them in right away they could stay at the ranch until someone wants to adopt one. I don't know how consistent the portal will be about it.

Jonathon has stolen Esmeralda's bone. I think he got tired of her trying to whack him with it.

I'm looking for people to teach archery and firearms (preferably Earth standard ones) at the gym. 11am-12.30pm and 2pm-3.30pm are open all week as well as some evening spaces. Pay is $50 plus whatever you decide to charge students.

The portal sure has a sense of humor.

I've never seen this shield before in my life, but it feels very familiar. It feels like Logan.

The Poké Ranch (ooc link) is done enough to use though there are still some things I need to finish, especially with converting the outbuilding and making a visible path to get there from the driveway onto the ranch. Right now it's sign-posted fine, you just have to walk across the grass to get there. Esmeralda and Jonathon have both tested it, even though Jonathon isn't a Pokémon.

I hear rumour there might be a place to board my Mareep, I was wondering what more is known of this. Tis best, I think, to leave him with our own. I take him out whenever I can, but I feel he needs a pasture, with plenty of place to roam. I am more then willing to pay for his care, and assure anyone that I do not plan to just leave him and plan to visit often.

And as promised both Bruce and the Princess of Wakanda will receive his wool. I do look forward to seeing what can be made of it and would like to see about a potential garment.

I know that we have people who have disappeared, and I am sorry for it.

However, none of the townspeople seem to remember what happened yesterday. Everyone I've spoken to has mentioned a gas leak and mass hallucinations. This is very odd.


I just counted 18 beeps. Do we know who that was?
