[Scott Summers & Rogue]
I can maybe handle this place for another week before I completely snap. I'd suggest talking to Gansey or the younger Steve about taking over from then.

I realize that this side of the 21st century is rather stunted technologically speaking, but you'd think that they would have managed to come up with a course management system for educators that actually works. Really, what are the incompetents at Blackboard doing with all of their development money?

Would any of my fellow educators like to schedule a standing appointment for an alcohol-fueled, sweets-riddled grading party?


[Matt Murdock]
Up for that rematch today?

Sep. 10th, 2018


This universe has got a sick sense of humor.

How sure are we everyone didn't just do a bunch of drugs at some point without knowing it?

Sep. 7th, 2018


This town is the living embodiment of Friday Night Lights without the hot coach. Nothing is open. Looks like I'm making a doorway somewhere fun tonight.

When do you get back in town?
Everyone is doing this Quidditch thing. Why don't we have a Welters field?

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

What happens to them?


Who: Maya Lopez
When: Sometime during her impromptu getaway
Where: Oklahoma, the Cheyenne-Arapaho reservation where she grew up in the Storybrooke alternate timeline (going back a bit, I know)
What: Two dogs still fighting
Warnings: Just a couple of swears

[Voice to Text]
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.

[Private to Maya Lopez]
What would you say to a rematch?

[EPS staff]
I need to go out of town for a few days. I'll be back before classes start but I can't promise a quick response on anything that comes up in the meantime.

It's spreading.

Aug. 17th, 2018


Has anyone tried to pull a Popeye yet? I'm operating under the assumption it'll work but I wonder if it has to be canned or if you could get by with one of those freezer bags and if it'd have the same effect.

Probably has to be canned. Comedic effect and all.

Heard through the grapevine you're affected. You doing alright, kid?

Is anyone possibly interested in a Looney Tunes marathon because of all this?

Aug. 15th, 2018


Considering I'm like two inches tall, Santiago, I'm going to need you to take care of a few things for me.

What kind of world did we fall in? I'm too small for my axe even.

Aug. 14th, 2018


Okay will someone explain to me what is going on? Because I really don't get it. Is this a magic thing?

Aug. 15th, 2018


Somehow I'm managing to be both dainty and graceful and what I assume is supposed to be adorably clumsy, but knowledge of the genre tells me I'm getting off easy. Somehow I'm guessing I'm probably not getting back out of town before school starts again though.

What's this I've seen about Toon Town? Anyone investigated yet?

Aug. 14th, 2018




We aww agwee dat dis is unusuwah. But we'he used to dat here. We shouwd assesh who aww has been affected and aww be vewy vewy caefuww untiw--caefuww untiw--we should exacise caution untiw we undastand what hash happenedd.

So we need to detahmine wh iz affected and if you n3ed hewp, contact the wesettlement buwwo

But I hope we can aww hewp our neighbas untiw this is sowted owt.

Aug. 11th, 2018


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?

Aug. 8th, 2018


I should do a unit on Dadaism this year. People give so much attention to Cubism and none to this beautiful weirdness. Of course Cubism is definitely significant, but I think there's been something of a resurgence of the principles of Dadaism lately that's really interesting.

Case in point.

In the meantime... Madeira, Portugal or Koh Tao, Thailand?

Aug. 6th, 2018


You know, I'm pretty sure we were going to try for an upgrade from Texas, weren't we, my fellow Displaced? I'm not even picky this time. But I'm pretty sure we could manage closer to the ocean. Less heat. Infinitely less tumbleweed.

Though I'm liking the whole 48 hours being reduced to 4. Wondering if already having the vaccines cancels out getting them again though...

Can I get some crayons and paper though? 4 hours is still insanely long for three year olds.

[Scott Summers]
Sooo... any chance I still have my job?

And I need a couple of enrollment packets.

Aug. 1st, 2018


So... as Johanna eloquently put it: Finnick, Annie, and the kids have been sent back. This feels awful.

Now we need to find an apartment.

[Natasha Romanoff]
There aren't any problems that would come up related to our identities if we got arrested in a foreign country, are there?

Jul. 25th, 2018


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

Jul. 23rd, 2018


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.


I can't believe I'm
I'm clearly cursed, so if anyone wants to go home
Well I've done an out of state trip, and I've done an out of country trip, and there's still a month left of summer. I might do a couple more short ones but otherwise I'll probably just get some art done, retune my workout a bit, maybe see if any of my older hobbies strike my fancy again. Which is all very low key for me, so if anyone is new or bored or anything I'll probably be around. My interests and the settings I'm comfortable in are both wide and varied, as long as you don't want to debate advanced astrophysics or something incredibly specialised like that.

Otherwise I'm just going to spend all my money on paint and clay and food and have to hit up another casino or something and that really just sounds like such a hassle right now. They need so much coddling when they lose.

friday night

I've been back in town long enough to wash about half the Gobi out of my hair but now I have this problem where my brain is convinced it's tomorrow morning. I figure I'll stay up most of the night, get a few hours sleep in the early morning, then as normal tomorrow night.

So, anyone for drinks? Keep me company while I get back on schedule?

Cut for pic, not IC )

Me at all that's going on in this town right now. I hope. I had help with the picture, so hopefully, it conveys my feelings clearly and doesn't actually say something like "I'm stupid".

Does anyone have experience with service animals?

Jul. 10th, 2018


Mia is gone. Shep and I are homeless. I think he's freaking out more than I am. Does anyone here have experience with service dogs? And does anyone need one? He's been training with Mia, but I know she'd want him to go to someone who needs him for what he's been trained for, rather than staying with me when I don't need a service dog. He's a golden retriever, and a total sweetheart.

For those of you who've just showed up and are attempting to get jobs or those of you who have been here and are still attempting to find a job, I'd like to remind you all that Maria and I (Daisy) have a list of businesses that are hiring in town. Of course, you can start your own business. If you need us to be a reference for a business not already run by one of the Displaced, just let us know. We have numbers ready.

If you want to come in to talk to us in person at the Resettlement Bureau, we can work with that, too.

The fireworks are beautiful. Feel free to keep them going for a while, I think I might watch them from the top of my building with a glass of bubbles. It's an American holiday I don't boycott, might as well take advantage.

Jul. 3rd, 2018


Are you planning on attending any of the numerous feeding frenzies?

Or have plans this weekend?

Is it bad to be banned from Starbucks? Like not even for breaking anything.

Jul. 2nd, 2018


Told this is how we're supposed to introduce ourselves. Eliot. Not a fan.


Can't wait to be in Ulaan Baatar next week. Brushing up on my Khalkha and Mongolian script, but a lot of people speak Russian or English anyway so I should be fine.

I still think I should have booked it for earlier, but at least I'm going to miss all the alien groupies coming into town for Crash Day.

I need a going out night. Anyone want to go dancing and maybe get really drunk with me?

B, you're already coming.

Jun. 27th, 2018


So I've not been here long, but I'd love a chance to get to meet people face to face.

So I'm going to be grilling in the Park in Council 8 on Sunday afternoon. If anyone wants to stop by for a burger and some age appropriate cold beverages*, maybe play some frisbee, we'll make room for you.

ETA: And juice for Clint Barton.

Jun. 25th, 2018


As much fun as driving into a mysterious forest where there used to be a town sounds, I'm going to see if I can still find a motel room in Pecos. Someone text me when things are back to normal.

The worst part about traveling is trying to decide when to go somewhere. I got to a page and a half of notes on different Japanese festivals trying to weigh up which were most important then started thinking I've never been to Mongolia. They have much less tourism so there's not so much to work around and it's a lot cheaper. Hopefully, since we've only been back a couple of months, if I book something in July we won't disappear off to another world in the meantime. Late June might be safer but there's a major festival in mid-July, and it's warmer.

The great thing is that with these teleporting bracelets I don't even have to book a return flight. In theory I could just wander through Central Asia until I either get bored or school's almost ready to start again.

Hypothetical question...if someone wanted to go about opening up an art gallery for people to show off their art and sell if they wanted to, how would one go about doing that? Especially if the person in question is under eighteen and will probably need an adult as financial backer of some sort?

Asking for a friend.


Yeah, alright, Jan. You win. Nobody got killed at the ball and I actually had a good time. I owe you an ice cream or something.

I'm only slightly less grumpy with being here now.

Jun. 1st, 2018


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.


I should probably figure out what I'm actually wearing to this thing tomorrow instead of swinging between putting it off and changing my mind. And whose names am I putting on my dance card, hm?

Art students, remember you'll be getting the instructions for your final assignment tomorrow as well, so if you don't turn up at least arrange to look at someone's notes. It will be turned in alongside your portfolio of work from this year, and yes, there will be marks for presentation.

I find the concept of watching television or films to be a complete waste of one's time, but I am also finding that people keep expecting me to know things, and it is annoying.

Give me your top three films that I should watch to understand popular culture.

I don't need consensus from you, I just want a list, and if there is a consensus, those will be the time-wasters that I began with while I wait for things to brew up.
