[Ororo Munroe, Peter Maximoff, Lorna Dane]
I'm gonna be donating Erik's things to some place soon. If'n ya want anything please take it. Nina's stuff is staying put though. Though if you want anything of hers negotiate with Anka Irene.

Do y'all wanna get away once the winter break hits together?

I need a headcount on who is still cursed and who isn't. Especially you, Fort Neill.

I think I've given up trying to figure out much of what goes on in this place. It's better for my sanity. It's like living in the feywild.

If anyone needs help with turning into animals, I'm pretty efficient at it and I've been a lot of different ones.

I've made some raspberry scones, if anyone wants any. I'm happy to share.


It might be best if I come to stay at the mansion until this is over. I seem to be taking on cat instincts as well as appearance and I have far too many breakables for this little supervision.

Sep. 17th, 2018



I was not like this when I woke up.

This is infuriating.

After nightfall - V2T


I need someone to find my smallest pair of glasses.

All I really want to do today is go somewhere I can be served a decent cup of tea and some kind of small baked good and people watch. The best I've managed to do here is a teabag and hot water.

This may seem like a strange or even inappropriate question. But how do the different types of relationships in this culture work? Or in the cultures represented here, I suppose, since there are multiple.

There seem to be different rules from the ones I was familiar with in the Radch, is all. And I'm good at making an ass of myself even when I know the rules.

The past few days, I've been to a place called India. It's not a country that I'm familiar with, as this world is completely new to be. The people there were experiencing a horrible flood. It was awful, though I tried to help as much as I could. It takes more than just a simple control water spell, or becoming an earth elemental to really do much good. I tried though.

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the world though. I'd like to know what places you'd recommend visiting.

So I'm finally delighted with the reno we've been doing on the the first floor since our little dragon-shaped hole last month. So let's have a little housewarming party on Friday to show it off. 6 pm, the Aerie?

Unless you're a cartoon. Or Bobby.

I gotta say, as far as portals shenanigans go, this one might be my favorite.

Can anyone out there beat jingoistic water foul?


So I can't talk and it took me twelve tries to type this and I still had to rely on autocorrect to fix things.

I am a tiny cat in my costume. All I can do is meow.

Question for the parents out there.

What do you do when your one-and-change-year-old daughter breaks the coffee table?

Asking for a friend.

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?

It's frustrating when you want to sit down with some home decor eye candy until you remember tyat to the internet, Egyptian always means ancient and Moroccan, Arabian and bohemian are interchangeable. "Relaxing garden areas" was more successful though and now I want about four more sheds so I can renovate them all to have different specific purposes.

Jul. 30th, 2018


I got a job! I'm working at the Bread Pitt. People are talking to me about the name, but I don't really get it. Why would you have a pit of bread? And why is it not spelled right? I guess it doesn't matter, I still have a job. It's not the Slayer's Cake, but it'll do.

Thanks for everyone who helped me. And everyone who have hung out with me. I'm still trying to get used to this place, you know?

Is there a place to plant a garden? I just have an apartment, so I don't think I there's room for one there.

Jul. 28th, 2018


With all the start ups and apps aimed at young professionals, someone should invest in one that connects stress bakers to stress eaters. It's an obvious partnership.

(Don't worry, I'm not either. Actually I came up with that during a grueling break reading in the sunshine.)

I feel like we haven't done anything in a while.

Jul. 19th, 2018


There's apparently a website with themed teas and I have my own tea. I'm a little curious to see how I taste. Julia, I bought your tea since we come as a two pack. Apparently our teas have hooked up.

Jul. 18th, 2018


I've seen so many crazy concoctions on the Internet about homemade remedies in the form of drinks and herbs for diseases, that I'm tempted to actually come up with potions for those matters. Bad acne? I have a potion for you! Feeling lethargic? Have a 12-hour energy booster without the crash afterwards!

Except... more than half of those crazy remedies are not actually remedies when you start giving them to, say, kids with meningitis, and I'm wary that a business venture of this sort would get in the way of real healing/medicine.

Yay? Nay? Any advice would be good.

I love you all very much, and I hope I never have to see any of you disappear from this place.

Jul. 17th, 2018


Lorna Dane was one of them beeps. Hopefully back there ain't as much of a mess as it usually is for us but I ain't too optimistic about that. 80/20 on if'n we're back to going extinct or not.

[Napoleon Solo]
Can we hang out just the two of us before I head out on this family vacation trip later this week?

Jul. 15th, 2018


Well, I'm glad I set part of that harvest aside before market, because I've been completely cleaned out. Time to adjust the projections in my bullet journal.

Is anyone interested in doing something for Crash Day?

Jul. 8th, 2018


Greetings everyone. It would be a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Most recently in my life, most people call me Breq, but I am also Justice of Toren. Please forgive the immediate discussion of business; however, I have some issues that need to be addressed.

Athoek Station, part of it, has arrived with me, and Station - its AI - is in need of more assistance than I can provide. The Botanical Gardens, recently repaired, will need regular work to maintain it. Given enough time, I can take care of the rest of Station. The Undergarden was mostly repaired, and I can fix what remains. However, living things cannot be ignored for so long. Unfortunately, having just arrived, I do not have local currency on a scale to pay anyone yet. I do have more than enough food, we grow our own, as well as tea and other options, pursuant to conversation and your needs.

While I could spend all my hours maintaining Station, and I will spend a good number of them doing just that, I am also interested in gaining paid employment. I have roughly two thousand years experience in the military, five years experience as civilian security, as well as experience in a multitude of jobs from janitorial to sewing to sports. I am fluent in more than sixty languages and learn new ones easily. If you have means and need for any of my skills or ones I could learn, I am interested in speaking with you.

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.

Jul. 3rd, 2018


You know, I suppose there's worse places that a portal could've taken me to other than Texas. Like the Badoon homeworld. Or the Shi'ar.

Either way, Texas nearly isn't as bad, I guess. The heat's a bitch, but that's pretty much it.

Anyway, my name is Lorna Dane, and I'd like to know a good place to get a drink around here, since I'm going to be here for awhile.

[Jean Grey]
Happy birthday, darling. I'm coming over to clean, so make a list of the chores that need doing and sit back.

Jun. 25th, 2018


Does anyone else remember partying with Fairy Royalty? It's not just me, right?

Jun. 10th, 2018


I said on the cruise that I'd tell you our history.

We were married, for two years. It happened quickly and it ended shortly before I arrived here when Scott decided to go to war with the Avengers. I thought he was doing the right thing at first, but... I was wrong, and Wakanda suffered for it.

I've been here long enough now to adjust and I have no expectations. You're different people. It would be like holding one twin responsible for the other's actions.

Happy Pride!

Say a girl got plans for a space station from Santa. Anyone interested in helping her make that space station a reality?

See, I'm asking others for help so back off Charle

[OOC: Rogue won't be responding to anything else as Betsy has knocked Rogue's spiraling self out]


I finally gave in and put up shade cloths over the garden. I've been keeping the temperature down back there but we're in such a high heat zone that anything will help if I want to keep growing over summer. At least it looks like I've figured out how to keep Ojo out of the berries.


[Rogue (616)]
You don't mind if I do a little training with Stormcaster at the island, do you? It's been a long time and I don't want to be too disruptive to the town.

Jun. 4th, 2018


[Family and X-Mansion residents]
I'll be heading out to the island tomorrow morning. I will utilize the portal between it and the school to teach my classes every day so there is no need to worry about coverage.

Cassie and Eleven, please see Ahsoka if you need anything.

Jun. 3rd, 2018


Erik's back.

He don't remember being here before.

If'n ya need me, don't.

We'll be back whenever I'm good and ready.


Network post.

If this is some sort of new experiment it’s a bad one.

I can’t even imagine why in the world they’d be letting us talk to each other and use our powers.

Stormbreaker is here! It was forged from Uru in the heart of a dying star on Nidavellir by Eitri.

It's handle came from Tree Groot!

We've been having a strange bout of weather as of late, but I hope this evening stays relatively free of any storms.

If anyone wishes to drop by the backyard this evening, I will be having a braai. I am thinking sosaties and springbok loin, but am willing to take requests.

You have been very quiet since that night as of late.

I came into a bit of money, courtesy of the portal. The school year is over next month and I was hoping to use this money to take some time away from Tumbleweed with you, this summer. We can go anywhere you like, see or do whatever you want. What do you think?


Who decided humidity had to be an actual thing? What purpose does it serve? Does it even help anything out? Even the animals are miserable with it.

Aren't there people here who can make it go away?

Why don't you make it go away?


[Thor Odinson]
Is Mjolnir in your possession?

[Betsy Braddock]
I need a favour. The portal's sent me a gift that might be enchanted to affect my mind and I want to test it safely. I know Mjolnir can destroy it so I'm asking Thor as well, but you should be able to shut me down if I try to attack him and you're not about to give birth.

Thank you again to everyone who came to the baby shower today.

May. 16th, 2018


I know people are a lil all over the place because of the whole power swap thing that's happened to some, but is anyone up for heading to NYC this Friday to go dancing?

If you're worried about powers going outta control my offer to help with that still stands.

So Friday. NYC. Dancing. Who's in?


[Filtered away from the Cottage/Brakebills people and Emma Swan]
How are there STILL so many rules?

Tell someone where you're going. Don't take cars without asking. It's not like I stole it. I was bringing it back! I didn't crash it or scratch it or ANYTHING! It's not like they were USING IT. I'm so tired of getting in trouble for rules I DIDN'T KNOW EXISTED!

Now I have to go to school to learn how to drive. Why do you have to go to school for that when someone can just SHOW YOU?! I'm getting sick of rules.

May. 9th, 2018


Okay, so ... my house is here, which is weird. Also a problem because I'm not a plant person. Aerith tried, I promise, but there are some things I cannot do. Like take care of orchids.

Angel's settled in just fine, though. She has her crib and her stuffed chocobo, and that's all she needs.

Next step for Zack Fair, SOLDIER First Class? Get a job.

I've learned that it doesn't take very long to grow Pokemon berries. I've also learned it does take a long time to convince a Pokemon that eating every berry in the span of about two minutes probably isn't a very good idea.

Apr. 22nd, 2018


Right so, I ain’t sure when we’ll be actually needing this, but I’ve gone and set up an emergency location for the Displaced for whenever shit hits the fan and we can’t go staying here in Tumbleweed. While I’d really like something like those bracelets we all had on the cruise for teleporting everyone no matter where they might be to be around for use, they just ain’t. Hit me up if’n ya think you can make something like that.

I’ve been working to finish adding up housing options and gotten some people to help limit the path of the local fauna that might’ve caused us all some issues if they were allowed to run around everywhere. It runs on solar power and backup generators. Wind power is getting installed soon once I figure out where would be best to go setting it up. There’s a greenhouse that’s already up and running and livestock are getting settled in this week.

[Pretend there's some pictures inserted here for everyone to see.]

So if’n you’re wanting access to it, what you’re gonna need is a portal set up in your house or your place of business (if its Displaced owned). Put your name down here if ya want in and we’ll get ya set up. Just like on the cruise, only the Displaced will be able to head through them there and back.

Hopefully it won't need to be used, but better to have something in place than not.

Apr. 10th, 2018


I'm not at the mansion. I woke up in a cottage in Council 8 with a kitchen garden area where I can replant everything I collected on the cruise and fill the rest with vegetables and herbs.

I think Ojo likes it.

Apr. 7th, 2018


I got this adorable lil one following me around the last three islands I've been to so I think we're gonna be calling him a member of the family.

I reckon he's a fan of the electromagnetic fields me and Anka Irene keep putting out. Ain't too sure what he's called though.

[Senior X-Men]
And alright. I need to admit that I'm a lil in over my head here and need suggestions on how to teach my daughter that she can't go creating or destroying whatever she would like to at the drop of a hat.

She seems to be picking up on the cues when I ain't all that happy that she decided to go making things outta thing air or disappearing things. But that kinda only works as an after the fact thing. Not a preventative one. Ten month olds ain't the easiest to try and reason with though.



Aside from berry plants which I'd be collecting anyway, is there anything in particular that would be a good idea for us to stock up on to help care for these little friends?

Apr. 2nd, 2018


[Wanda Maximoff (616), Selina Kyle, Hope Summers]
Plans? If'n ya wanna do some of the trip together let me know. If'n ya wanna go out with others let me know that too.

[Ororo Munroe (movies) and (616), Betsy Braddock]
Y'all wanna check out this spa that they got when we get there?

[Napoleon Solo]
Hey you. Wanna join Anka Irene and I for a day or two at this new place?
