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.


Mycroft is still in a spell-induced sleep in one of my guest bedrooms over a week after the ball. Having no experience with faeries, how long might we expect these spells to last? Has anyone found anything other than time and patience that might break it?

It seems that your employer has arrived.

Jarvis, I need a drink.

Peg, help me out here, will ya?

I do find it difficult for me to resist a ball, but the mysterious nature of this one has me feeling hesitant. I have no experience with faeries. Ought I be concerned if I attend?

Letting people know that Harvey Specter disappeared.

[Private to Mary Crowley]
I hate to ask you this on Labor Day, but I really need your help. The Rodriguez case that Harvey's been working on goes on trial tomorrow morning, and there's no way it can schedule at such short notice. I need to familiarize myself with the case, but all of Harvey's notes are printed. Can you come over to the office later to read them to me? You'll get paid overtime.

What would you say to a rematch?

The community college here any good? I know I could have someone fake a B.S. for me (pun intended), but I thought it might be nice to get a degree from somewhere other than Batcave University. You know. Try a different mascot, take classes when the sun's out, get a diploma I can stick on a wall instead of an old, singed costume in a case.

I have one vital question.

Where's Batman in all of this? If you ask me, we've been cheated.

Well, this is... different. I think I look like a princess in one of those Disney films. It's unnerving, but it could be worse, I suppose, now that I've gotten over the initial shock.

Mr. Murdock, Mr. Specter, I hope you don't mind that your secretary has been turned into a drawing.

[Friends and Family]
Thank you again to everyone who came last night. I hope you enjoyed it.
[Mycroft Holmes]
And thank you again to you for arranging everything.

Aug. 2nd, 2018


Good day, gentlemen.

My name is Lady Mary Crawley. I recently spoke to Mr. Specter about his need of a secretary for your new law firm. He recommended that we all speak together, since I will need Mr. Murdock's approval as well, of course.

I admit that I have never done secretarial work. To be upfront, I am from 1924 originally and my father is the Earl of Grantham. Ladies of my class were not secretaries. I'm still not thrilled at Be that as it may, I think that I would be well suited to this position. Back home, I ran my family's estate. It required being quite organized and paying attention to detail. I think those skills would help me. I'm also getting better with my typing, though I would be willing to take a typing course, if you gentlemen would prefer.

I don't wish to assume anything, but if you would like to have me come in for a formal interview to see if I would be a good fit for your firm, I would be happy to. Or, I can answer any questions that you might have over this device.

I've got a job working as a secretary at Mr. Specter and Mr. Murdock's law firm.

There is some weird shit out there for sale. Needful Things actually has a "Dimple Maker" from the 30s. Apparently, dimples were in. It looks like a torture device. Anyone want to try it?

Taking advantage of all these tourists, I'm opening the warehouse for people to come in and browse. If you're able, it would be wonderful if any of you could assist.

The heat is unbearable here. It's as if the sun is angry with us.

Is the sun angry with us? Did any of you do something to it?

Should I create thunderstorms? The clouds they bring will give us relief. I'll keep them going for the next few days or until one of the Ororos makes me stop.

Remember to leave milk and cookies out for Captain America, when he comes to leave presents under your flag. I stole this joke. Love, Rick Jones.

I knew something was amiss when first thing in the morning I found John Watson's Natu on the sill, motionlessly staring through the window. For those keeping score, I confirmed that both John and my brother Sherlock have disappeared from Tumbleweed, along with 221b. Again. Please, spare me your condolences and platitudes, I don't want to read or hear them; they are unnecessary.

On an unrelated note, I shall be going away on a business related trip to London for five days, and I require somebody to mind these pokemon in my care, the above mentioned Natu and my Eevee. Those that are interested may inquire to this post.

[Fellow English (Includes the different universe ones, and Alucard)]

For those who expressed interest in attending the gathering on the Fourth, I would ask for a confirmation, so I have plenty of refreshments at hand. The Manor is located at [Address] and feel free to arrive any time after three.


Last week, when the world turned into a faerie land for a day, there was a faerie man who followed me about and expressed his undying love for me. He simply wouldn't take no for an answer. It was flattering at first but then grew a bit irritating. Take note men, following a woman about is not a way to get them to love you.

Apparently I should have taken him up on his offer. He was actually quite handsome. I wonder what faerie men are like in bed.

Albus has decided that he would prefer that he and I merely be friends.

the morning after the plot

So last night?

That kind of thing happen regularly around here?

I intended to inform everyone sooner but with the end of term and the Senior Class trip, once again, this got away from me. Still, we have time.

James, Lily Luna and I will be taking a family trip with Credence, Luna and Helena to Florida next month. I was gifted a trip from the portal back during the winter holidays and we are just now able to take advantage of it. Should anyone like to also venture to the Sunshine State, and the Walt Disney resorts, while we are in attendance, we would be more than glad to spend some time with you during our trip. We will be there from July 8th to the 14th. I've attached our itinerary [here].

Let us know.

As for the current trip I am chaperoning, the 5 mile hike in Yellowstone was, well, intense.
I do not know if you will want to go, or will be able to with the shop having just open, but if you cannot, I would still like to take Fred with us. If that is alright. I think Helena would have a more enjoyable time with someone her age and I do not want him to feel excluded.

[Fellow English (Includes the different universe ones, and Alucard (Hellsing))]

Soon enough the Americans will host their Fourth again, and I was wondering if anyone would care to get together and have our own little gathering. One where there's a lot less fireworks.

Jun. 11th, 2018


There is a woman here who looks uncannily like my sister. It's quite unnerving, particularly because I think she runs some sort of gambling hall.

Jun. 9th, 2018


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

May I be among those to express my delight at last weekend's ball. It had to be one of the most enjoyable evenings I've had since my arrival through the portal. The catering was marvelous, and in particular the pastries. They were of interest to me because recently I've come across the BBC program, The Great British Baking Show, and I can't get enough! Most of the items I already know how to bake - bread, Victoria sponges, self saucing puddings, even fancy preparations such as Mille-Feuille, but there are a lot of new techniques that are exciting. Since the portal brought over all my baking equipment and supplies, I've considered taking a course.

[Private to Those Who Played Bridge With Edwin at the Ball]
Would any of you be at all interested in getting together on a regular basis for cards? In my experience, the amount of people around nowadays that know how to play bridge is few and far between, what to speak of those who even know what you're talking about. I'd love to host something.

[Private to Peggy Carter]
I have a serious question, and please be brutally honest.
Do you think I'm too effeminate?

When I made that bet about being able to talk kidnappers into releasing me, I did not account for science fiction. Rookie mistake.

[There is zero context given to the video Julia has posted to the displaced network. It appears to be vertically filmed cell phone footage of older Tony Stark shaving his goatee to this song. Tony's voice can barely be heard over the audio, but Julia added subtitles: "There's a very real possibility that underneath this is just another beard." She's trying to hold in her snickers behind the camera.]

I really want to be more excited about my broom, but it came around the same time as Dad leaving and now I'm just disappointed.

How are you guys doing?


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.

It appears as though my gift has finally arrived: my horse from back home! I was so thrilled to receive the call from the base that she was here. I rode her home, though unfortunately my backyard here is not nearly as vast as it was back home and I've nowhere to keep her. There were a few people who mentioned owning or running ranches before. Would anyone be able to give me an estimate on how much it would cost to board a horse?

DM to Mycroft
Have you seen that there is going to be another ball? I'm quite excited. Albus has asked me again.

DM to Albus (added)
Did you like what I wore to the ball last time? If you'd prefer, I can try something that might be a bit more contemporary to this time period.

I must have been a good girl, because our benevolent portal overlord has seen fit to bestow upon me a beautiful set of wheels in just my color.

The portal evidently saw fit to deliver one my favorite hounds from when I was still human.

I don't think adjusting to the modern era will cause him much difficulty.

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.

I suppose it was inevitable. Our Growlithe is now officially known as Skylar. It didn't matter that he looks like a canine. Helena's dead set on it and she's got him coming at the call of the name now.

She's asked if we can get a dog house. Of course, after asking for it, she promptly told me that he still needed to sleep inside. I think she wants the dog house more as a play house of her own than for him.

Some of you have found some rather cute species of these little creatures, but I've had no such luck. The first one I have appears to be some sort of grub. The second is an orangutan creature. I can't say I'm interested in keeping either of them. They're quite hideous, really. But if anyone happens to like animals of that sort or is trying to complete some sort of collection, do let me know. I might trade for anything that might be appropriate for a pet, or I might simply give them to you. Both of these will be released before we leave the island.

At least the spa is nice.


[Private to 'Friends' as such, since we all know Mycroft doesn't have friends]
The new arrival who goes by the name of Sherlock Holmes may closely resemble my brother, but he is from a different universe than my own. He is not the same person who was here, previously.
