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?

Sep. 14th, 2018


Event: Unseelie Court Ball

WHO: The Displaced and a bunch of fairies.
WHEN: From midnight until 6am. Technically early Sunday morning.
WHERE: Another dimension
WHAT: The Unseelie Court invites you to a ball. (Make sure to tag your characters as you add them). Masks arrived shortly after the Abducted were taken the prior night.

Welcome, welcome! )

Fuck that portal.

Pyro's been sent back.

Where do people go when they just vanish? Is there a place here they go?

What happens to them?

Someone decided I need to do promotions for this book.

I don't think they've met me. I can tell this is not going to go well even now.

Good afternoon. My name is Jim Rhodes and I help Tony Stark look after Peter Parker, who I believe you know as Henry's friend. The three of us are planning a trip out to California this weekend and we were wondering if Henry would like to join us so that Peter has company his own age?

Unfortunately, teenagers think they're too cool to hang out with old men like Tony and I.

You got me Balam Komarov. He's the one loose end that I want to take out, before I give this a rest.

You in?

Aug. 14th, 2018


Might've forgot to mention this, but I'm back in town if you still wanted to show me some things.

Aug. 1st, 2018


Leaving again. I might be gone a bit longer this time. See you when I get back.

We'll touch base at the Facility, get a chance to find out what we're each capable of and start planning from there. See you soon.


Hey, I'm being called up at work - that thing I told you about. I'm leaving in a couple hours.

Apparently I need a dedication for the first book. Like wtf is with all these spring up rules. And I'm not allowed to cuss something or just tell the world to bite my ass.

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.

This lock up is a hell of a lot more easy going than the last one.

They told me I wasn't allowed to leave until I found a guardian. Except my parents aren't here. They also said the X-Men are here and that posting about it wasn't going to cause a shit-storm.

I'm Lauren Strucker. I arrived a few hours ago and I'd really like to not be locked up here any longer. How do I find a new guardian?

Jul. 19th, 2018


I have never had to answer so many dumb questions in my life and still be pleasant when doing it.

Going legit is a pain in the ass.

To those that I met during the outing yesterday - it was a tolerable experience and I will say no to another one with less insistence next time.

I have spent my time here doing a variety of things. Mostly, spending as much time away from all of you as possible. I was in no place to deal with any of you and what you would have gotten in return - and did, for some of you - would not have been pleasant.

But the time for living such a depressing way is over. I have been given a new start here and my daughter from home, Nina, reminds me of that every time I see her. I have already started the process of getting to know some of you. I would not be completely opposed to getting to know the rest of you.

And for the Rogues that are here - I believe some version of me has committed several sins against most, if not all, of you. For that, I am sorry. I regret that there comes a time in any of my lives that I act against the best interest of a mutant.

I need someone to watch Nina during the day while I work. Would you be available?

Jul. 12th, 2018


I got tasked with getting codenames for the group so we don't end up compromised if our communications get intercepted.

So I'm going by Hawkeye, my usual. Rhodey's going by his usual: War Machine.

Do you have a codename you want to go by? Or do you want me to give you one? This is so cool and official

ETA: Names will be here

Sneaky spy types, roll call.

I see congratulations are in order for forming your own country. It is a terrible shame that I should arrive here in the New World along with Mrs. Quigley's home, but no Mrs. Quigley to speak of, nor anyone else who previously resided there. It is a fine and most reputable house, visited often by those with of discerning tastes. Now there only vacancies to be filled. Whatever am I to do?

There is still plenty of wine to drink, the vintage most agreeable in my time, though I suspect might be a curiosity in yours. It would be absolutely wicked of me to indulge without offering. Therefore I have no choice but to cordially invite all of you to my home on the Eve of the Thirteenth, which I find appropriate given my circumstances, at [address].

If you are a gambler, I would be most honored to host you at my table.

Please come in your most fashionable. I am curious to see more of what people are wearing these days. I still have much to learn of your world and am grateful for the company.

To new friendships,
Miss Charlotte Wells

So. Anyone want anything from Chicago? Let me and Pyro know here.

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

cut for picture, not an IC cut )


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.

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.

May. 23rd, 2018


Anyone know if there's a publishing firm in Tumbleweed?

[Rogue {1610}]
I may have a way to make some money in a relatively timely fashion. And by timely, I mean a few months.


Remember you don't need to bring cash for help getting shit home from the base. I take Venmo too. Cost negotiable, pay extra and I'll carry heavy stuff through the portal for you.

As you may or may not know, The Pit has been under construction for some time now. Due to the delay caused by our Ocean Cruise, we've just recently finished construction on our dedicated Quidditch Pitch and are almost ready to received visitors.

We will be opening our doors, so to speak, on Tuesday May 29th at 8 AM. However, we invite everyone to come out to the premises on Sunday May 27th. We will be having an open house on that day so if you've never seen Quidditch in action or how a broom flies, you can come get a glimpse ahead of time. We are planning on a full day of pickup games and will be showing everyone how the game is played should people need explanation.

The Pit is user friendly and if you've ever had a dream of mounting a broom and taking to the air then we are here for you. While we have rental brooms available for all Wizards and Witches, we also have brooms specifically designed for use by non magical patrons. That's right. You do not have to have magic in order to participate.

I've provided a schedule of what we currently offer here. There will be lessons available beginning on opening day and ideally, once we have enough interested people, we will begin to have weekend matches in the near future.

Thank you.

I need one more instructor. Does anyone have interest in teaching flying and would like to interview with myself, Bill and James?

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. 1st, 2018


I'm actually starting to like this place.

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

Apr. 12th, 2018


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.

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?

Apr. 4th, 2018


Well...this is new.

Mar. 20th, 2018


We’ve gotten a lot of departures and new arrivals, so I wanna tighten up what our plans are in case the boat is attacked. Any non-combatants need to make their way to the school, on foot or via the portals that are set up. We’ll have people defending that area as well as other areas on the ship.

If’n ya be a combatant if'n the ship does get attacked, post here and let me know which deck ya wanna help out on. If you’re a doctor or able to help with the part of ambulance by flying or teleporting people also let me know here. And anyone who can help out with tech/comms please be letting me know here too.

Cut to save the flists )

Head's up, but it looks like Gaby and I are triplets now.
This is still weird.


I know how to make an entrance, but usually I know a little about what's going on before I get there. Fashionably late.

Am I fashionably late at least?

Oh no, I'm not early, am I???

With a heavy heart, I must announce this to my fellow cruiseship members: Francisco Ramon is no longer traveling with us.

I'm sorry to bring this news so soon after a night of merriment and joy. He's doing pretty great at home, though, so no need to worry how things turn out for him.

Mar. 16th, 2018


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!

Mar. 8th, 2018


So! Sherwood or Agrabah to get stuff, or should we see about getting into trouble in Neverland?
[Emma Frost]
Hey, I think we both know that it's not working, so we can quit. Thanks for trying, at least.


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.

Feb. 26th, 2018


Do any of you magical types have anything in your arsenal that can manage something similar to those Elven costumes in Middle Earth? I'm having height withdrawals.

Feb. 25th, 2018


I've been informed by one Maleyn Oretsev that I'm not "social enough."

So here. An obligatory post brought to you by Alina Starkov.

As much fun as camping has been and the amazing company I had, indoor plumbing has been a blessing and it feels very good to be clean shaven again.

What has been everyone's favorite thing about this stop? Any recommendations I have to try before we leave?


Hello! I haven't had a reason to use this network thingie for a while, been too TOO busy. Anything interesting happen while I've been away?

Oh, and I might've misplaced River Song somewhere. Has anybody heard from her recently?

It was a good thing she’d opted to damper her powers, not that John knew the ins and outs of that, but he wasn’t on the floor with no powers, so he took that as a good sign.Read more... )

So Violet won the bet, but no one else put anything up except the Doctor, so you get to pay her, doc.

Gonna explore Middle Earth with me?


I'm guessing the Tolkien books are in the library, although there may not be enough copies for everyone. I have digital copies on my computer - the trilogy and also The Hobbit - if anyone would like to read them on their tablet. Just let me know.

I was also thinking we should screen the movies, if we have them, even though there might be inaccuracies (if we're visiting the book world). Because it might be hard for new readers to get through 3-4 books in the two days before we hit the port.

Feb. 8th, 2018


Any artists around? Apologies if I missed any similar inquiries, but I'm looking for either ship offered activities related to painting or sketching, perhaps even sculpting though my experience there is limited, or models to draw.

There's only so much dancing and drinking that can be done before it becomes monotonous.
