Tried to get Ace up to go to the manor this morning. Managed to get him to move from my bed to the armchair. We're halfway to the door at least. Chuck's already in the foyer and wondering what's taking so long.

Jun. 26th, 2018


That was weird. I have a migraine.

[Cassie Sandsmark]

Can we eat junk food and watch bad movies?

[Jason Todd]

Hey, you.

...We should probably talk.

Jun. 24th, 2018


I put in for a service dog. Apparently, they can be good for people in wheelchairs to help with mobility and other things. Plus, it'll be nice to have someone who can help me so that Cassie isn't doing extra work for me. I found a program that pairs people with dogs fairly quickly, and I'll have to take some classes so I can get used to having one, but it's a step forward. I've had a woman involved with the program contact me, and I've already been paired with one.

I'm either going to need some sort of soundproof warding on my apartment, or, like... move before I piss off more neighbors. Who'd be willing to help me? I'll pay even. Cash or food.

And by that, I mean helping with the soundproofing. I am definitely not leaving this apartment in my state.

So how about a trip to NYC Pride in two weeks with your bisexual girlfriend? Not amidst the crowd per se, but I'm sure we can find a rooftop that won't be crowded.

Are we still working on being a better superhero without sight with meditation and stuff like that?

Settled on a name. Say hi again to Charles de Batz de Castelmore d'Artagnan.

Or, as I like to call him, Chuck.

May. 31st, 2018


The ball completely snuck up on me and I forgot to buy a dress. Anyone else want to do some super last-minute shopping with me tomorrow?

May. 30th, 2018


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

May. 24th, 2018


Okay. I get the portal was trying to do something nice and send me something from home, but sending my Speedy costume only reminded me that I'm never going to be able to go out in it ever again.

May. 21st, 2018


Guys. Why is there a French Mastiff addressed to me from the portal?

Why do I feel like I suddenly understand my dog a hundred times better?

May. 5th, 2018


You know, the fact that moving only takes a couple hours makes me think that I should probably look into getting more stuff.

May. 4th, 2018


Tomorrow's free comic book day. Normally I'd go, "Hell yeah! Free reading material!" Instead, I find myself vaguely conflicted. Am I going to pick up a comic book, decide it's pretty cool, and then next thing I know the characters are living two doors down and need to borrow a cup of sugar?

May. 2nd, 2018


Now that it isn't the middle of the night and my son and I have slept and eaten more pancakes than I know what to do with--protip always keep emergency money in your bra, ladies--I've got a few questions. I read through the network a bit so might not quite be your typical ones from new arrivals.

Already know the fiction thing; googled myself about 10 minutes into being here.

  • Has anyone checked the town newspaper archives for more information on the incident that went down at the base?

    I saw that you all fought various things when you came back from the cruise ship and the next day the people in town were calling it a gas leak or something like that. More instances of gas leaks or evacuations of the town for something not out of this world might give a better timeline of when things have come through and what occurred in those days right after the attack on the base. Especially since I'm gathering you don't know what happened to the perpetrator(s).

  • Schools.

    My 10 year old can keep glaring at me all he wants, but who can explain the school situation a bit better to me. Because he's going.

  • Housing. It just shows up? Are you tracking that in any way?

    Because Granny's is great but we're not about to move in here.

    Oh right. Lois Lane.

    [Friends/DC Verse]
    Just so everyone knows, I'm going to move in with Cass and Mia this weekend.

    Terry, thanks so much for letting me stay at the manor, I really appreciate it.

    Apr. 28th, 2018


    Okay. I'm tired of not being able to go upstairs without someone having to carry me.

    Does anyone know how to go about making a fancy manor more wheelchair friendly?

    Apr. 19th, 2018


    Now that we're back in Tumbleweed, and things are a settling down just a little bit, is there still an interest to put on that production of Rocky Horror Picture Show? Maybe as something to look forward to, next month? I was at the community theater earlier today, and I can book us a night to perform there.

    [ETA: Cast List with roles confirmed and needed] beneath the cut... )

    [Mia Dearden, Stephanie Brown, Cass Cain]
    Hey, where are you all staying?

    Apr. 6th, 2018


    So apparently this possible flower crown of a Pokemon is really good at healing, which like...is very important. I don't actually know that much about Pokemon, but I wasn't really into the games when I was younger. My dad got me a pack for my birthday once, but mostly it was just magic kits and stuff. Thanks for posting information about the Pokemon on here, though, because I'd have had no idea and probably traded something we'd all apparently need. Also I guess it's kind of cute.

    It had plenty of flowers to choose from on the boat, so it seems pretty at home now. I never really considered myself a flower Pokemon sort of person, but then I never really considered myself a Pokemon sort of person, so I guess that's not really surprising or different. King Quentin of the flower crowns, I guess. Or I can stick with Moderately Socially Maladjusted. It just seemed shorter.

    Just in time for the last port, they're letting me out of the med bay.

    Anyone know if any of these places are wheelchair friendly?

    Apr. 1st, 2018


    Who: Mia Dearden
    What: Wallowing
    Where: Her room in the med bay
    When: Evening
    Warnings/Ratings: High. Mentions of traumatic injury, HIV, child abuse. Mia has a lot of sad angry thoughts right now.
    Status: Closed narrative. Complete.
    All she could really do was stare at the wall. )

    He wants the reaction, guys. I thought about it too but he knows exactly what reaction most people will have and that's why he posted it.

    Mar. 29th, 2018


    So yeah, in case anyone was wondering, Rocky Horror's being pushed back to IDK when yet.

    Mar. 26th, 2018


    My leg is broken but if there's anything I can do to help, just let me know please. Even if it's just sitting with someone so they aren't alone.

    Mar. 21st, 2018


    So I have what may end up being a fantastic idea!

    Let's put on a Rocky Horror Picture show live action thingamajig. Janet is Janet, but the other parts are up for grabs. If we want to do rehearsals or whatevs, maybe we can start scheduling that next week?

    Who's in? Who wants to handle putting this together?

    I had a lot of fun last night. It was nice getting all dolled up. I don't get to do that very often.

    [Charlie Weasley #2]
    And thank you for being an awesome date. It was a lot of fun and I can rub it in my families face that I met the Weasley's and Potter's.

    So, archers? Are we doing this or not?

    Tomorrow, 2pm, Sherwood?

    Mar. 8th, 2018


    Alfred took my cigarettes. :(


    [Batfam & friends]

    I found a bean.

    Mar. 7th, 2018


    My first day here and I've managed to find one of those beans the pamphlet mentioned. I'm curious to find out where it goes. Anyone feel like going on an adventure?


    Judging by the alarmist attitudes of people apparently in the know, this isn't a Sherwood Forest or Camelot in the vein of Mel Brooks or Monty Python. Who do we speak to about making that happen?

    And I hope we can all agree to the necessity of coming up with a swear jar equivalent or some other punitive measure for anyone who's caught singing that "Let It Go" song from Frozen. I'm guessing corporal punishment is a bit much.

    Mar. 6th, 2018


    I look forward to getting off the ship and stretching my legs. It'll be good to explore again.


    So people can have the same face here. Does this happen often? Not like twins either-

    I swear if someone shows up with Glenn's face-

    Just so everyone knows, when we get to this next place, I am totally running off to join the Merry Men for a little bit. In case anyone starts to miss me.

    Also, does anyone else want to steal from the rich to give to the poor with me?

    Feb. 24th, 2018


    I don't want to go. I don't want to leave my new horse friend.

    [Several pictures are posted of Steph on the horse she's been hanging out with while in Middle Earth]

    I was serious when I said you're going to have to tear me off of this horse. I'm going down kicking and screaming.


    Right. How bloody much did I drink last night?
    George, if this is one of your jokes, I'm not sure if I want to congratulate you or hex you. Possibly both.

    Would anyone like to [...] venture with me to Mordor [...] the Land of Darkness? I will keep us safe.

    Quick linguistics lesson.

    Tolkien had Opinions, with a capital O, about Elves and adjectives. Pretty sure he gave his editors heartburn expressing them.

    Here's the short version. Elvish = pertaining to the languages of the Elves. Elven = pertaining to everything else having to do with Elves.

    Example: The Elvish tongue. Elven robes. Elvish writing. Elven settlements.

    He didn't like elfish or elfin at all, pretty much.

    "Elvish, elvish has been changed to Elfish, elfish 7 times but left unchanged 3 times. I view this procedure with dudgeon. The older and 'historical' form elvish is still recognized, and appears even in such popular dictionaries as the 'Pocket Oxford'. I suppose I should be grateful that Cox and Wyman have not inflicted the change from elven to elfin ..." - Letters #236

    And there's your daily proof that Jason Todd has, in fact, read a book. Enjoy.

    Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. What do you say we be each other's Valentines and go out for lunch at the Prancing Pony? We can act super adorable and get all dolled up for each other. I can even throw in cuddling and hand holding as an added bonus.


    Tomorrow's Valentine's.

    Maybe an elf will kiss me.

    My luck, it'll be a bearded lady dwarf.


    I'm never giving up this elf-wear. I want to stay this tall forever. It's like being a tree or a bear. Hello, little people! No wonder everyone's always patting my head.

    Feb. 12th, 2018


    So we really can't stay here forever? Because I'm really liking being an elf.

    Your Good Person lesson of the day.

    Stealing cars is wrong. Apparently there was some confusion on this issue, so I thought I would clarify. Stealing in general is wrong. Please do not steal from other people. It has a negative net effect on the balance of the universe.

    Thank you,

    I don't think two weeks is going to be long enough to do all the things there are to do in Middle Earth. How is everyone else deciding what takes priority?

    Feb. 10th, 2018


    So I think I'm beating my better half to this but...someone might need to pull me away from the Elves when it's time to go.

    ....Think they'd care if I take one of their bows?


    Oh golly! This is so exciting! I've never been around live humans before and, well, the rest of you crazy kids, too. This is so great, I just know I'm going to learn so much from all of you.

    What do you think I should do first? I've been debating between trying a saltine or wearing flip flops. Flip flops! Can you imagine? Me, an eternal celestial being in flip flops? It's going to be so exciting. I just hope this meat suit holds up okay. I'm certain that as long as I keep out of trouble, we won't have to worry about any kind of cosmic reverberation wiping you all out of existence should it become too damaged.

    Oh! Oh! Does anyone have any questions for me? You humans (and other beautiful souls) are always so curious! I'm an architect and I design neighborhoods in The Good place. ;) I suppose I could start by clarifying things that are good, versus things that are bad.

    Vaguebooking is definitely bad. Please be careful when using this forum to express your feelings. It's certainly not as bad as murder or paying money for music performed by California funk rock band The Red Hot Chili Peppers but all those little negatives add up, you know.

    Wow. Really guys. You just seem so great.

    My name is Michael, and I can't wait to meet all of you.


    Middle Earth Goal: See if I can get archery lessons from some of the elves.

    I grow more and more restless. It would be nice to train without the possibility of being thrown into the brig.

    I'm sorry for hovering. I was thinking we could go out tonight and explore a little. Not not much. You still need to heal more.

    Anyone maybe feeling up to sparring? I promise I won't knock your teeth out or anything.
