Let it be a lesson that honesty is most certainly not the best way to conduct a business, especially if its brand new and you have only opened a week ago. And it is dependent on not insulting women's looks, or at the very least, giving honest answers when they ask your opinion.

These faeries have ruined things before anything has even started.

Yo, this is the worst. I was trying to get some free food by pretending there was a fly in it like Pillboi and I used to do, but then I just told them that I put the fly there and I couldn't get free food and I had a fly in my food, so I couldn't eat it. So I had to pay for it and I didn't even get to eat it.

Oh, thank the saints, that bird thing has worn off. That was weird.

Alina's still asleep, though, so [...] for the next couple of days, at least, my classes at the gym will be canceled.


So we thought maybe True Love's Kiss might help with Regina's predicament, but it's not helping. Henry should have work, but it didn't. The rest of us all all tried just in

It's not broken with that, or maybe the Kiss just doesn't work here.


It wasn't the fairies. Illya's really gone. If anyone needs any assistance in whatever is happening right now, please let me know. I could use the distraction so I don't punch another hole in the wall.

Excellent news!! My birthday is this weekend! I don't really know why it's that excellent, buuuuuuut I'm excited! YAY!!!

So who wants to do something awesome for my birthday? Not really sure what that entails, but I think we could find something fun either in town or maaaaaybe not even in town. Maybe really out of town. We could go back to

Has anyone here ever made goat milk cheese before? Because I am apparently very, very bad at it, and I don't know how I'm doing it wrong.

Hot sauce was so much easier.

Napoleon has a girlfriend now.

I'm taking suggestions for names.

Okay; I read a book about this stuff and learned some stuff.

Does anyone around here do local produce growing? Apparently a community that gives back to the community is a thriving community or something. Also, local bought tends to be cheaper than mass sourced. So! I need produce.

And I'm hiring. Wait staff, cooks, bar staff. That sorta thing. Yeah. Okay.

I robbed a rich guy of some artwork and got start up for the BrewPub.

What're good interview questions for staff?

Of the many tragedies we've all seen through this place, I'd say that Mal Oretsev's facial hair is the worst.

Napoleon, Genya, help.

Crash Day was not something I had initially expected to become a successful business setting, but it did, and I am glad that I took the chance. It wouldn't have been possible without a friend giving me the idea and helping build my booth. This would be a great start to getting my own place of business.

Filter: Alina and Mal
I'd like to treat you both to dinner sometime. This weekend?

Jul. 15th, 2018


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.

We return bearing gifts!

Technically we returned last night.

And most of the gifts are wine from Napa Valley.

But that's not the point. The point is aren't you glad to see us?


I've had a good friend suggest this idea. Since this Crash Day seems to be a popular thing here and I know people love to get extra for these things...

I am offering to turn your hair and skin color into whatever you want for a discounted price. The effects would last a day or less if you wish.


This Crash Day business is truly fascinating. From how seriously they're all taking it, one would think it's a festival for a saint.

Have you considered offering your services to make people look more like aliens? Because I think a lot of people would go for that.

Would anyone be interested in sparring? I would prefer to fight someone with great strength and endurance, so I do not cause harm to thee.

What kind of lights are these?

Jun. 10th, 2018


How on earth did you make this?

Your student is incredibly creative.

Everybody meet Napoleon! He looks just like his namesake, doesn't he? What an uncanny resemblance.

I am doing "market research". I understand this is very important to running a successful business.

How many people here use swords, blades and other edged weapons as their preferred method of fighting or defense?

How many people here are interested in acquiring an a blade or require a blade with unusual specifications or qualities?

Thank you for your response!

I would like to start a business. I have been reading up on it on the internet. I thought as a successful business owner yourself, you could walk me through the process you went through to get started?

Would you be interested in an apprenticeship? I thought after our discussion at the party you might be interested in the art of bladesmithing.

It would seem that this doorway into this world has fit to send me my personal vials of color dye that I often use for my Tailoring. I will have an even easier time seeing to anyone's makeup, eye color and hair color if anyone so chooses.

Are there any qualms against the potential use of the farm as a set up for a salon? I will confine it to my bedroom so you're not having too many strangers walking through your home.

May. 14th, 2018


Well, my class should certainly be interesting this week. Whether you're learning new powers or learning how to deal with not having them, you're welcome to come and practice with us. Nonmagical defense against magic, Monday - Friday, 4 - 5:30 PM at the Howlett Gym.

For once I will actually be on the "powered" side of things, and who knows how long that will last, so I recommend that you don't miss it.

Also: if you are not fully in control of your new powers, please let me know if you intend to come so I can prepare the appropriate safety measures.

May. 12th, 2018


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

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

May. 10th, 2018


The cars that come through Gypsy's are all so stripped down. No superchargers or spikes. There's no need for that sort of thing here.

But if you do want something fixed up scary, let me know.

What kind of cars do you guys have?

May. 7th, 2018


Well, I've had about two weeks of sitting still on a farm, and while I'm not used to living in less glamor and wealth just yet, I'm mostly grateful I am no longer a queen's servant to be treated as such.

Nonetheless, boredom is starting to sink in so I suppose I should be doing something to keep myself busy and making sure I'm helping the newlyweds here with their expenses. What sort of job is around here for a Grisha to blend in and not look completely out of place with apparent scars and an eyepatch with a particular talent in changing people's physical features or poisoning them?


Sooo, what does it take for a teenager in this place to be able to travel around more? Because I'm going to have people telling me I'm too young for a job, but also, your army or whatever that was supplying money to us is no longer here. There are clearly other places better than Texas to explore.

May. 1st, 2018


I'm actually starting to like this place.

And yes I'm being sappy 'cause it's your fault.

Looks like it's bout time I started earnin' myself a honest livin. Hell, maybe it's high time I went back into dentistry. Wouldn't that be somethin.

How's that tractor comin' along?

Apr. 29th, 2018


Well, I'm not entirely sure if I've cracked or if this is another form of merzost, but I'll play along. I'm Genya and I have just arrived. Would anyone please point me in the direction of the Sun Summoner and her tracker boyfriend?

Apr. 22nd, 2018


Right so, I ain’t sure when we’ll be actually needing this, but I’ve gone and set up an emergency location for the Displaced for whenever shit hits the fan and we can’t go staying here in Tumbleweed. While I’d really like something like those bracelets we all had on the cruise for teleporting everyone no matter where they might be to be around for use, they just ain’t. Hit me up if’n ya think you can make something like that.

I’ve been working to finish adding up housing options and gotten some people to help limit the path of the local fauna that might’ve caused us all some issues if they were allowed to run around everywhere. It runs on solar power and backup generators. Wind power is getting installed soon once I figure out where would be best to go setting it up. There’s a greenhouse that’s already up and running and livestock are getting settled in this week.

[Pretend there's some pictures inserted here for everyone to see.]

So if’n you’re wanting access to it, what you’re gonna need is a portal set up in your house or your place of business (if its Displaced owned). Put your name down here if ya want in and we’ll get ya set up. Just like on the cruise, only the Displaced will be able to head through them there and back.

Hopefully it won't need to be used, but better to have something in place than not.

For those who are not already regulars and familiar with the Howlett Gym schedule, I teach a class in nonmagical defense against magic, a particular specialty of mine and one that I would argue is exceptionally useful in a place like this. It is open anyone, including magical folk, who can alternate between magical sparring and nonmagical sparring, to help others practice and to learn the skills themselves to fight without their magic.

In fact, I would greatly appreciate more magic folk joining in, to give students a wide range of types of magic to learn to defend themselves against. Alina helps me regularly with her light magic, but as she is not allowed to actually cut anyone in half, she sometimes gets bored with blinding people.

If you have an ability that is technically non-magical but makes you more powerful than the average person, I might be willing to work you in as well. Let me know if you're interested, and we can discuss your abilities beforehand so that I can formulate a lesson plan. This has always been on a volunteer basis, or rather you would be considered a regular participant in the class; however, I might be willing to pay a few people out of my own pocket if they bring important skills to the table, especially since I know money is a concern for everyone right now. If that's something you're interested in, we can discuss it further, and of course the gym owner, Laura, would have to sign off on it as well.

The class meets Monday through Friday, 4 PM - 5:30 PM. I hope to see you there.

Some great news:
1. The Homestead's here!
2. So is my shotgun. My sweet baby. So good. I totally did not hug my gun
4. So am I.

I'm glad also to be able to say no revenants will be getting on my yard. So points to that.

If anyone wants this old farm equipment, I really don't think I'm going to be using it or starting a farm anytime soon. Unless you'd like to argue about it, Doc. Do you have secret desires to use the farm equipment to start a farm on the grounds that I was previously unaware of?

If anyone needs a place to stay, I have two rooms to offer up. Wynonna's is off limits because she might show up. Willa's is free forever because she's not welcome even if she does show up

Apr. 10th, 2018


So you're staying with me, I won't hear any arguments about it.

Next order of business... there's a lot going on. Clearly. But I feel like we - as in the community - could benefit from an evening of being social. Where people can mingle and exchange thoughts on jobs and what they may do here now that we're in Texas.

And since the pool is here, it only makes sense that I combine the slumber party I wanted with a pool party. Thoughts?

Just checking in. Please don't overwork yourselves.

*ooc; If you've talked to him on a regular basis, you're a friend. If you've slept with him, you're a friend. If you're still unsure, ask!

It's weird to think that there are spaces that just wait for us.

But I am glad to be back at the farm.

Apr. 6th, 2018


Do you think my [...] ability would work on someone else's magic, besides yours?

Apr. 5th, 2018


I've got two of these key ring creatures if anyone wants one of 'em. Or both. Either way.

ETA: I'll trade for a fire pokemon.

Where to next?

April Fools' Day is about betrayal and I'm not down with that.

I only got to know Ava on this ship, and cannot pretend to know the grief that you are all feeling, but I am sorry for the loss.

I'm writing only because Alina and I were her suitemates, and I imagine that some of you, at least, will want to at least look through her things and decide what to do with them. I can't let you into her room - you'll likely have to ask one of the robots for that - but I can let you into the suite. Or I can ask the robots to let me in and pack things up myself, if you'd rather not deal with it.

If you can't make any decisions about it right now, that's understandable. It's an open offer.

I had a pararibulitis attack this morning, really early. I'll spare you the gory details. It came with a vision.

I saw airplane landing strips and cogs coming to a stop. Has anyone even seen an airplane lately??

So, by now.. I must have tracked a good ton of holidays of this world and kept up with what's familiar and what isn't between your world and mine. For example, we don't have a Valentine's Day. We have a Friends Day. Harrison Wells, the other grumpy one, didn't appreciate my cards last time and I forgot to make some more this time around.

Understandably, though, because I was probably high on pain meds.

My holiday tracking app has informed me though that today is a holiday that your world and my world have shared for many decades: World Sleep Day!

Join me in not getting out of your own bed today. Well, I sort of can't, I still need help with my leg. But you catch my drift!

Camelot has been a downright wonderland. I've done my best to nudge some of the knights into organizing a small tournament and it will be held tomorrow through the day.

There will be sword fighting, a melee, and jousting if anyone wants to participate.

Rogue, Sherwood for the day after?

I will understand if you do not want to see me anytime soon, but I do hope to spend time with you at some point during this port. Please let me know if this is possible.

How do you feel about meeting a magician from a world similar to ours? More similar than any other world I've heard described, at least.
