Well. At least I'm conscious this time.

Damon, Daisy, Emme, Ollie, Jaina, Liss... you guys still here?

I like Fred. Generous, idealistic fellow, not a hint of mercenary about him. It will be a stretch.

I have no experience with Thanksgiving before last year's, but I do find I've quite a bit to be grateful for. Would you want to do something? It might be a good time to I've never attempted a turkey, so I can't make any promises.

Thoughts based on what we've seen so far?

[Mycroft Holmes]
How are the renovations coming? It sounded like quite a project.

Hello! My name is Yuna. I... didn't say hello before, I'm sorry for that. It's been really strange coming here like this, but that must be the same for so many. 

What are some things you enjoy about being here?

Nov. 8th, 2017


My name is Mycroft Holmes. Specifically, the Mycroft Holmes from BBC's Sherlock, not the U.S. version, Elementary.

Yes, I'm aware there are multiples of people present, including two pairs of Sherlocks and Watsons, and yes, I've been doing my research. There's not much else to do whist in quarantine.

For any interested parties, I was previously in Preya before I was brought to Tumbleweed.

As I write, I ought to be released from quarantine in approximately 29 hours from now. Neither my flat from London nor Preya has appeared with me, but I've been told something has been arranged. I do hope it's adequate. All that remains is to secure some sort of gainful employment which isn't too mundane.

I appear to have volunteered as a choreographer for the play, as they'll actually be having proper dancing.
Feel free to laugh.

[Karen Page]
Not to take precedence, of course. I don't suppose I can prevail on you to assist?

[Sherlock Holmes (ooc: Either, since I'm not sure he realizes there's two.)]
I was told to coordinate with you about about the music for the play.


As many of you are aware, we had a containment unit set up for the Mogwai. We had a large majority of the population in this unit. As of this afternoon, however, all of the Mogwai have seemed to have disappeared. Our monitoring systems have allowed us to confirm that one moment the creatures were in the facility and the next they had vanished; much like what occurs when one of our own Displaced returns back to their universe.

We highly suspect that any Mogwai, or Gremlins, that may not have been kept in the containment unit have also vanished. If any who still had a Mogwai in their possession could please confirm it's departure, it would be greatly appreciated.

We'll keep an eye out for any stragglers over the next few days just to be safe.

Well this is just wonderful.

Lissa, Rose, Dimitri? Are you here?
Adrian? Sydney?

Hey, my name's Christian.
What do you all do for blood here?
I typically have donors but I can make do with blood bags.

How "rustic" are we looking to get? Because there's this place that seems kind of nice.

For the record, PBS is the best channel. Did you all catch She Loves Me last night? It was wonderful.

Do you think it's been enough time to where I can tell Emma the plans? And do you maybe want to help me paint some this weekend? Dash can come too if he wants. We'll get pizza and maybe we can talk Adam and Ronan into watching a movie?

So should we just cancel Halloween this year until this costume thing gets worked out?

Oct. 9th, 2017


Is there a magic shop in town? Is there interest in a magic shop? A place to buy ingredients for spells, maybe do tarot readings, a place to store all the big tomes that might have come with us?

If not, I'd really like to start one. I don't know how to go about that though. Where I come from, there was already one. It was called the Magic Box.


So... Willow doesn't remember me.

Which makes me wonder about this whole... timeline stuff. Where are you at in it? What's the last thing that happened in Sunnydale for Buffy? :)

My birthday's next month. I don't know if that's even all that exciting I'm just saying that if the magic of this place wants to bestow a present on me, that would be great. Maybe like enough supplies to finish building Festus. Especially since you're keeping me in Texas of all places.

I'm also pretty sure I'll never trust Halloween ever again.

Since we've seen an interesting increase in new residents lately, I wanted to remind everyone that the Ellie Phimister School is open to all displaced of secondary school age. For anyone unfamiliar with a modern or an American education system, we are happy to fast track and assist where necessary to get you up to speed. We are also seeking educators and administrators to expand our staff. If you have experience, wonderful, but it isn't entirely necessary to get your foot in the door. Inquire within this post for more details.

Tell me you're back to yourself.

[Laura + Remy, separately]
How have you been, darling?


This is an update on my earlier investigation.

With help from Vision, we've been able to identify the man who opened Spooktacular. His name is Ethan Rome, and he rented the storefront for two months, but didn't begin moving costumes into the space until the middle of September. The employees he hired say he was odd, but not unkind, and paid well for the part-time work at his shop. We do not have any clear photos of him, but he's described as having blond hair, 5'5' and being 35 years of age. It's clear that the name is an alias - the identification he provided to rent the store are forgeries and don't trace back to anything, and his digital footprint is practically non-existent. I wouldn't be surprised if his appearance was also a disguise, given the man was obviously a skilled sorcerer - somebody of his caliber wouldn't have a problem altering his bodily features. In any case, Ethan has effectively appeared and disappeared without a trace - the last time he was seen was on the day before the Come As You Aren't party.

After conferring with my fellow magic-users in town, we've determined that the only costumes that caused the transformations came from Spooktacular. As many of you might have already surmised, the transformations are not permanent, and once the transformation has ended, the costume becomes entirely mundane. However, the costumes that remain in Spooktacular are still cursed. So to prevent any more chaos, we have closed the shop and sealed it with a variety of magical wards to keep the magic contained until we are able to dispel the curses. All other costumes, not bought at Spooktacular, are safe to wear.

If you would like to return the costume that was bought at Spooktacular, we will accept them, and store them safely within the shop.

I, myself, am purchasing my Halloween costume online, and having it shipped.

[Private to Magic-Users]
The nature of the magic used for the curses are not malevolent, and it occurs to me as I was writing this, that this is more the work of a Trickster. Thor suggested to me that this seemed to be something Loki would do, but this was before Loki appeared. But I also considered this work could be Prankish in nature, along the lines of Weasley Wizard Wheezes.

Quarantine - how much have I not missed you.

Hola, Tumbleweed. Who's still here?
