And here I wondered what use Potions could ever be to me once I left school.

Don't worry, I won't indulge too much before our next lesson

Aug. 27th, 2017


I can't believe I actually just wrote out a pros and cons list of going to real grad school. You know, the type that doesn't feature learning magic and improbable adventures that lead to coronations and all sorts of dangerous shit. Just the type that sucks up money, social lives, and souls. It seems moderately pointless, if we can all just disappear back to our original worlds by whatever it is that brought us here in the first place (I refuse to say pod god, that time notwithstanding), but I also need something to do with my time that isn't just shopping and making cocktails.

The latter half of that last sentence pains me. This might be the weakest form of adulting there is, but I think that's what is happening here. Fuck.

Oh for Merlin's sake! I do not need to revisit my youth this way.

I don't know what was in the drinks, but my head hates you all.

All right, kids. El's birthday is Saturday and we're celebrating.

Third time's the charm, right?

Maybe whatever keeps us here decides to keep me here longer, or just not bring me back at all? I mean that is an idea.

The name's Neal for anyone that I haven't met.

I hear it's unusual that I remember my last romp in Tumbleweed, but I'm not exactly your typical guy.

2 hours down, 46 more to go. This is going to be great.

Things seem to have settled down. Are you ready to begin my lessons?

Jul. 31st, 2017


I am hoping that wherever we go next does not involve impromptu battles. Hopefully we can avoid any while we're here as well.

I am more than happy to be slightly bored.

Oh thank Merlin. I never thought I'd be this happy to see a tiny Muggle town.

With all the magic users we have here, is there no way to shift us through time and space?


This is a desert. People are living in caves. Everyone arrived in magic dampening pods. It's 1953 and everyone is miraculously given a phone that syncs up to a social media platform? Would you say I'm caught up to speed?

Frankly, right now, this all sounds like nonsense. I think it is far more likely that I'm freezing to death and in the process loosing my mind.

I need a favor. I need you to make my backpack bigger on the inside.

Like right now.

This is the worst place drop yet.

What is that wailing racket going on down there? It doesn't sound like anything good's about to happen.

All right then. Where are we going drinking and how many hearts are we breaking for your birthday?

Are you ever occasionally attracted to women, or is it strictly the male persuasion for you?

Seems as if all the universes have one thing in common — the need to find a job.

Still considering looking at the government. Not 100% on the fence about that, though. Had my run with the feds, and that might be enough for me. Besides, it wouldn't be the same without Peter my friend there with me.

So my fall back is art. I have taught art before, and am willing to take commissions if anyone is interested in a portrait. I'm skilled in all mediums, even sculpture if that's something you want. Never know when a person will want a bust of themselves just in their hallway.

Let me know if you're interested. In the meantime I've painted these replicas if anyone wants to purchase them:

What are the odds that people from our worlds have been coming here for long enough that they've spread out? I mean, we're sticking around here, but what if people before us thought Tumbleweed was boring (understatement) and decided to leave.

What if some of them weren't, you know, necessarily benevolent?


(Backdated to the morning of July 8th, after this)

Hello, everyone. I'm sorry to have to reach out to you all in this manner but it seems the most efficient way to reach everyone. I'm going to keep this brief and if you have questions please feel free to ask them there.

Yesterday, one of the members of the X-Men was at the Carnival grounds and aiding in the clean up of the area. While at the grounds, she used her powers publicly. The Military proceeded to arrest her and keep her in custody for a large portion of the day. From my understanding, they were holding her overnight and should be releasing her at some point today. This is the first incident we've seen where the Military has responded to an outward display of power in such a manner.

With this in mind, I think it is important that we try to keep a low profile. The majority of us have operated under the Statue of Secrecy before. I think it is best if we all go back to operating under that type of mindset, at least when we are out in public.

Petunia, you live with the other major type of Wizards, do you not? Would you mind telling them this information as well?

If you have any questions, like I said, you can ask them here or reach out privately to myself, Bill or Emmeline.

Out of quarantine finally, but it's an out of the frying pan and into the fire situation. Literally. Think they'll let me back in there if I ask nicely? With privileges, of course, to wander in an out. They at least kept it cool.

Which I'm hoping my apartment has air conditioning because if it doesn't I might have to take up permanent residence at a pool.

So this is different.

Texas, not the being transported via portal. You think that would be the weird thing, but it's not. Feels like I'm an old pro at it now, though truth be told a few years ago this would have been nearly impossible to fathom.

Still, I gotta say I prefer Paris.

Quarantine isn't so bad. 48-hours is probably the shortest time I've spent incarcerated.

The name's Neal Caffrey. It'll be a pleasure once I get out of here.

Nine days in Texas. Clinging to that whole "I'm hallucinating" thing isn't really working out anymore so I guess I'm actually in Texas. Also true, Parkinson's still an asshole. Just spent two hours listening to music that the natives seemed way more into than I was. Anyone need fifteen boxes of trick wands?

What manner of dark magic went into making glitter? I have washed my hair countless times now and I still sparkle.

WHO: Pansy Parkinson and Quentin Coldwater
WHERE: Quarantine
WHEN: Shortly after Pansy’s arrive
WHAT: A meeting
STATUS: completed

Bit of a step down from being king of Fillory, isn’t it? )


WHO: Pansy Parkinson and Lily Potter
WHERE: Out on the streets
WHEN: After Pansy’s release
WHAT: Pansy meets the mother of her nemesis
STATUS: completed

At the very least, it would be worth it for the look on Potter’s face to find out she was drinking buddies with his dear mum. )

It's another awesome day in Texas. The humidity is stupid, I don't have a pool, everyone is talking about things and also not talking about things, plus people are roundly ignoring Good Vibrations right outside the town line.

Must be Monday.

How seriously do I take somebody like Emma Frost who created Inhuman-hunting Sentinels? Because right about now, it's kind of all I can do to sit on my hands and keep writing a story about the Cowboy Church with their direct line to god. So.

So, I got the story from Jean and Kitty on Emma and why she decided to make Sentinels that killed Inhumans. I didn't know genocide could be considered so lassiez-faire. That being said, I have no intention of sitting around and letting that happen here. But if you want to discuss, let's get coffee and discuss.

Jun. 14th, 2017


I'm finally out of quarantine and in dire need of a drink. Where's a girl to find a good cocktail? Margo, I'm especially counting on you.

And I've heard my home may or may not arrive here. What happens if it hasn't?

Jun. 11th, 2017


Oh for Merlin's sake not again! NOW where have I been dropped into?
