Bureau guards and official volunteers:

There's talk of moving kids outside of Tumbleweed, but we don't have complete data on whether or not she'd snatched anyone outside of here. Right now, I'm recommending patrols, particularly around school times. I want no one under eighteen walking to school alone. Parents, if you want a guard who has superpowers as a bodyguard, let me know. We'll assign someone.

If you're volunteering, note that I will be picking those with powers first. Maleficent has untold magical powers, and there is no telling what she's granted to the troll-like "people."
You up for some more shifts while I get some people out on the streets? Promise not to work you to death.
Need a favor. Can you drop into Cuba and let me know if one Mistress of Evil and her troll minions are there?

Hey, so, when you show up without a house, they give you an apartment or a house or something right?

Asking as a concerned citizen.


Questions answered. We're good here.

Temporarily renting out the Pool house, just so you know.

So when people disappear does their magic fat man appearing money go too or is that something that could be redistributed to the masses?

This isn't the sort of portal I'm used to going through... I was expecting to just have a nice night's sleep after finishing up class at the dojo, but that didn't seem to be in the cards. Now I'm here, wherever and whenever here is.

So uh, hi, I'm Danny Rand. It'd be great to get to meet you guys and I hope there are some friendly faces here.

Feb. 9th, 2020


Something that's been bothering me about our newest visitor. We know who she is, but what's her endgame? How do the missing animals or dreams play into that? Is this an attempt to create her own kingdom or something else?

Any ideas? It could be the key to stopping her.

Feb. 4th, 2020


Has anybody else noticed anything irregular happening? In particular, the appearance of these goblin like creatures around town? They don't look friendly at all.

Feb. 2nd, 2020


I must say I considered killing whoever I needed until one of you fools could send me home, but the idea of conquering a fresh new world is far more appealing than returning to one I already rule.

I also know how tiresome heroic fools can be.

Consider this your one and only warning to stay out of my way.

[FNRB + Tumbleweed Sheriff's Department]
So you guys have had access to the portal through a lot of these crazy events. I don't know if it spikes or something when something happens, but is there any chance we could get a heads up at the Sheriff's Department when it seems to be up to something?

I've been thinking of making a post following up on last week's earthquake, but I wanted to get an opinion if it's maybe overstepping:

On the last several cruises or... world changes, we've had some degree of security / watch / etc. People have come together but it's kind of added to the chaos of our initial arrival trying to set up while everyone's sorting out our new environment, arrival procedures, and if/where everyone's loved ones are.

So I'd been thinking of posting to coordinate something like a meeting some 4-6 hours after arrival which gives people time to both assess our new situation and get their friends and family situated but also address security concerns expediently.

Is that just poking the bear? Would it read as too Bureau affiliated? It feels like a decent idea but, do you think it would be well-received?

I'm trying a spell to counter act the truth effect going around.

Anyone want to try commenting with an obvious lie? Focus on the image and type.

Natasha felt the beginnings of the rumbling. Her first instinct was not to drop to her knees or get under her desk; it was to brace for unconsciousness or another trip through a portal. In a few moments, she'd pitch forward, face first, and wake up in a bed, a chair, or somewhere else completely different. It was that time of year, after all. The cruises.

Earthquakes in west Texas weren't completely out of the question. It had the highest rate of activity, jumping in the last ten years from about two dozen to over a thousand. No one felt them though; they only registered with a seismograph. Natasha kept an eye on those.

Several moments passed before she realized it was just an earthquake. A regular, normal earthquake. One this strong was unusual here though. This one, this was going to cause some damage.

Immediately, she called out to the AI system. "Pull up local feeds. Hone in on Tumbleweed and west Texas. Get me all earthquake registers and pull them up on the screen. Send a notice to the Displaced."

I'm sure you've noticed the earthquake by now. It does not seem to be affecting only us. I'm seeing it pop up on Twitter, Facebook, and news sources. As of right now, it does not appear to be our time to head on another little adventure.

That doesn't mean this wasn't caused by the portal though. I need all portal techs and magicians in the office ASAP to look into it.

For everyone else, get somewhere safe. Get on the ground, take cover under sturdy furniture. Preferably something that can cover your whole body. Stay away from glass, windows, anything that is not nailed down. Cover your head and neck with your hands and stay put until it stops.

Has anyone else noticed a rather inconvenient habit of just saying exactly what you mean today? I believe I've left a stranger particularly unsettled. I'd like to figure out how to stop whatever's happened.

If anyone got new ships that take fuel not used here for Christmas, I'm still looking for fuel samples for experimenting in creating replication with our current materials.

Also I got more outside lab equipment! I'm going to fill up this whole warehouse. I just need to fit the old with the new and what I've already been working on.

[Lorna and Number Five]

Which of you is better at charming people to let us look at their ships? I've gathered up quite a few blueprints that we can model after to try and build prototypes in order to begin fuel testing stages.

If the other is more interested you can help me with breaking down what fuel samples we've gathered so far. I don't have a sample from each possible ship here so I'm not sure when we should stop bugging people for samples.

Also given you've both been here longer, though not involved necessarily with the portal directly, personal perspectives on phenomena could be helpful. Contextualize some of our data.


Thanks for the new intern.

I've returned. Didn't even know I was gone.

And it's now the year 2020.

Somebody want to update me what's happened since I disappeared?

Is there any house in this town that doesn't have a pool? I saw one street that appeared to be in competition for which one was the largest and most garish.

Your aim's good, but maybe don't shoot something glass at a wall. There's glittery water all outside the Bureau now.

It feels rather strange to have Christmas decorations up. I suppose we did some decorating at Christmastime back home, but it's different. Dudley and Harry have been talking non-stop about Santa. It's nice to see them so excited about something.

[FNRB Heads]
I'm not sure if now is a good time to ask, but I was looking to change jobs. I've had some secretarial experience, but I know you have someone that works the desk. If, however, there are openings you need filled, I'd like to discuss them with you.

While I appreciate the faux snow setup in Phoenix Park, any interest in turning one of the other parks into a literal snowglobe? The 60 degree weather is apparently putting a crimp in my kid's holiday cheer, and I'm inclined to do something about it. I'm sure the locals won't mind. Been awhile since the town had a gas leak anyway.

Dec. 14th, 2019


I really should crack down and start looking for a job.

Dec. 9th, 2019


We're trying something a little new this year. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be holidays for the Bureau, but we'll need 6 volunteers to work Christmas Eve and Day in the three schedules for the portal and one doctor.

This is an experiment so it's first come, first serve on who works. And if we don't have enough, then we'll see if this is something we can do every year or not. Let me know which shift you can work. No swapping for back to back schedules; you get the same schedule on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I need you all frosty.

  • 6am-2pm - Justice of Toren, Seiverden Vendaai
  • 2pm-10pm - Rolanda Hooch, One Volunteer
  • 10pm-6am - Natasha Romanoff, Bucky Barnes (616)

    I'd like you all to get to spend time with your families, but we still need coverage.

    The same will go for New Years Eve and New Years Day.

  • 6am-2pm - Two Volunteers
  • 2pm-10pm - Two Volunteers
  • 10pm-6am - Maria Hill, One Volunteer
  • Dec. 8th, 2019

    Hello dear, have you had any water in the last hour? Please drink some more. For your health and well being. It's incredible what has happened here over the time we've worked on the portal. I have enjoyed it immensely, and you are an incredible magician to work with. It is with no harsh feelings that I wanted to let you know I will be resigning my position with the Bureau. We never know how much time we will have, and I want us all to choose carefully what we do with the gift it is. For me, the time has come that it means working elsewhere and on other magics. I wish you only the best with the portal, for I know this work is meaningful and valuable.

    Filtered: FNRB Leadership
    Thank you all for the work you do. It has been an honor to work with you. I am rendering my resignation, for two weeks time. Though you may always call on me during the emergencies we face as a community. Sincerely.

    I know we all must think of what we want for Christmas, especially from the portal. I am tempted to request more of the wine I cannot otherwise come by here (not even piracy can help us there, Bard). But I wonder about the practice of New Year's resolutions. Has anyone begun thinking of those? Have had good ones in years past? Have kept one (and which one?).

    Is there some sort of eviction process I should be aware of? The Hulk Bruce was sorta my ticket into this place.

    I'm sorry to hear about those who lost friends and loved ones in the most recent disappearance.

    How often do those happen here? While I'm happy to see my friends, and a version of my brother who doesn't appear to be up to his usual tricks, I am eager to get back to my is it mine? I think it might be stolen ship with the last of Asgard's People.

    Is there a schedule perhaps?

    Nov. 16th, 2019


    Since the other day, the portal has gifted us some other items. Nothing appears to be quite as personal as the VHS. Our staff has gone over them and we cannot find anything mysterious or magical or problem-causing them with.

    Well, except the weird swamp bird things. They're just annoying.
    • Dozens of plastic hour glasses. They only do one minute intervals though.
    • A whole bunch of horror-inspiring taxidermy animals.
    • The aforementioned swamp birds. They are ridiculously stupid. And apparently livestock so if you want one or more, come get them. Anakin called them nunas.
    • Some white balls the size of an apple. They have turned Nebula into a piglet when she dropped one. If anyone can help with that, it'd be appreciated. I really need my guard back.
    • Toeless rainboots which are, of course, useless. But if you want the material, it's yours.

    The Bureau will be open at 8am tomorrow if you'd like to pick up items. Please, for the love of all things, take the nunas.

    Seems that most of the Displaced are back to normal. Congratulations.

    You two up for a mission? Juticalpa, Olancho, Honduras is on our list of places that might have had an attack. I need you two to go down there, ask questions, snoop around. You know, the usual recon stuff. Up for it?
    Anyone have any idea what this is about?
    Go. Do what you need to. We're good here, and I really appreciate you sticking around.

    Would you mind coming in for an examination. We're not sure what kind of wolf attacked you, and we'd like to make sure you'll be okay.
    I need the pair of you to head to Tumbleweed General Hospital where Keyleth was taken. We need to collect all the blood samples and paperwork they did on her. Go in as CDC agents, make up a story about a canine influenza, and collect everything. Bring it back to Drs. Chakrabarti and Moore.

    Guess what?

    I'm sending you to Pie de la Cuesta, Guerrero, Mexico. In January 2003, conspiracy theories say there was a suspicious chemical spill that left the town evacuated for several months. Conspiracy theorists suggest otherwise. A lot of similarities to ours and Paraguay's "chemical spills."

    Fort Neill Resettlement Bureau Management,

    It is with regret that I turn in my two week notice of resignation as receptionist. I shall place an advertisement over the Network for the position, and will gladly train the replacement. Thank you very much for the opportunity to work with you, the experience was amazing.

    [Private to Nadia Van Dyne]
    Effective immediately, I shall be resuming my former duties as Mr Stark's butler. I've given the Resettlement Bureau my two week's notice, and shall be moving into Mr. Stark's mansion. Mr Stark has been told that I am your guardian, and is perfectly alright with you moving in, as well. It will be a bit of an adjustment, especially for the next couple of weeks, but I do not intend to shirk my responsibility to you.


    Hi. Howard showed up. I'm not dealing with that very well. Wrote you two letters, but they got rambly and too honest, so I burned them. I love you two, but I gotta take off for a little bit. I won't be gone for too long though, but take care of Han and Kap while I'm away, yeah? I'll be in touch. - Disregard. Staying.

    Not dealing with Howard being here very well so I'm taking some time away. I know it'll be hard, but don't do anything stupid while I'm gone. Disregard. Staying.

    Some of these people on the arrivals list for Paraguay are names I remember from the space cruise. The people and beings who got on board at a few of the stops, the ones who gave most of us that space pox.

    I need searches down on these names. Dig as deep as you can.

    Update on the situation in Paraguay:

    Proper channels have failed as they consider this now a chemical spill. I'm taking a small team down to do reconnaissance. We'll keep you informed.

    We're going in. We've got Alice making a portal for us so we don't have travel time, and we can get inside the city without road blocks. Most of us will be going in as United Nations Environment Programme's disaster division inspectors. That should give us enough clearance for anywhere we want to look. We'll recon the area around the base and determine when we can get in. Your covers are included in your paperwork. Try not to start any fights.

    [This includes: Peggy Carter, Justice of Toren, Clint Barton MCU, Nakia, Bucky Barnes PH, Sara Lance, and Steve Rogers MCU. It also includes those at the base helping out. Check the OOC post for more information.

    Sep. 5th, 2018


    So as you saw on CNN, there's a situation in Paraguay. It does resemble the attack on the Fort Neill base in the last 90's. The Bureau is looking into official channels to speak with anyone on the base or anyone with any knowledge of the base. This is a very precarious situation due to an international military being involved. Please do not attempt something on your own; you could jeopardize what we're trying to do.

    The Bureau will keep you as updated as we can.

    We'll reach out when there is a need for assistance.

    Can you guys be on call in case we need backup at the Bureau?

    We don't know how many people might end up needing to go. We don't know if we're going to be attacked again, but I'd like to make sure we have people on our side. Those of you with bigger powers — looking at you Danvers — may end up stationed at exits just in case it gets by everyone else. If you've got suggestions for others, let me know.
    We're working on negotiations to get down to Paraguay to see if we can get inside that building, take a look at the fresh scene and what it looks like. I'm not going to lie, if it's anything like the aftermath we found here, it's going to be a bloody mess. If your stomach's a little on the light side, let me know. Do not compromise this by whining. I will not hesitate to fire you if that happens.

    Anyone with computer experience, I'd like to get you all working on grabbing every image, video, and audio leak we can find. More than that, I want to look into other potential military bases getting hit with strange and sudden shut downs. I want all of them, even if they've been decommissioned in a property ceremony.
    I'm probably going to need a raincheck on that vacation.

    Sep. 4th, 2018


    Letting people know, I'm going to go away for a while to get my head together. Try to get in touch with the Other Guy and come to some sort of [...] agreement? Compromise? Reconciliation? And I can't do it here. Too many distractions, especially with the randomness the Portal pulls. I've notified the Bureau to let them know I'm taking the time off. Not sure exactly when I'll be back.

    I'll have my tablet with me, so I'll still be able to keep in touch, but I don't plan on being online a whole lot.
