WHERE DID THE SKATEPARK COME FROM? No, wait, doesn't matter. This is awesome and it better not be like all that faerie stuff and go away in 24 hours. Please, please, no.

Peter, grab your board! Meet me [address]. Other Peter! I've got a spare. When you ready to learn, dude?

Man - days like today, I really miss New York and my aunt. That's the forest I want popping up around here randomly. Pizza... mutant rats... the lush smell of garbage in the morning. But mostly the pizza.

So, should we like - I dunno, try to meet once a week or something and talk about findings? That sounds like a professional thing to do.

My Phantump appears to be sadder than usual. I think he misses being at the school with me. I think it's time to come up with some games to play with it.

Pokemon play date anyone? He's shy and skittish, but really excitable when he's found someone who likes him.

How come you can't just put contractions anywhere? And how do people know what order adjectives go in? And why does English call it pineapple when everyone else says ananas? This is what they should teach us in school.

Dear residents of pecan place. I really hope the walls are soundproof. Otherwise, I'm so sorry for the drum-banging. The portal decided to gift me with those some days ago, and I've been trying to grow accustomed to using them again without sight.

Needless to say, I'm seriously rusty.


Hypothetical question...if someone wanted to go about opening up an art gallery for people to show off their art and sell if they wanted to, how would one go about doing that? Especially if the person in question is under eighteen and will probably need an adult as financial backer of some sort?

I'm really missing Violet tonight. :(

I may have done some digging cause I got excited. What do you think?

This one is near Disneyland France and $20 a night!

Plain but functional.

This one's got a lot of good reviews.

How about the end of June through beginning of July?

Okay, so this LEGO thing. When do you want to trade the $$$ for getting this thing! Do we need to go somewhere outside of Tumbleweed for it?

I just can't stop thi

Oh, wow, they made a Portal 2?

May. 21st, 2018


Um. I just picked up like fifty thousand dollars from the Resettlement Bureau. They said it came through the portal with my name on it.

Not to brag or anything, but that's like a lot of money here in Tiny Town, TX when you don't have to pay rent or utility bills.

And classes are about to let out.



Anyone looking for or know someone looking for a car? I have a 2004 Volkswagen, which is not going to be used anymore by me anyway, so I might as well offer it for the best price someone has to offer.

May. 18th, 2018


So, how do I get near that portal again?

Mama wants a look.


"Numbers, the letters of math." They're killing me, Smalls. OK. So. Swapped powers people. Still swapped, right? I can't promise any definite end games, but I can maybe - theoretically - hook some of you up with power dampeners if you need/want.

Hey. So. Hi. I'm really into figuring out portal stuff, but I'm also nearly off my shift. I think it was my shift today for research. Idk. I'm kinda just going in all the time and realizing now I'm obsessing.

Help? What's reality like?

As fun as this has been, are there any indications from the portal study group as to when and how this power change is being fixed?

Okay, so someone has to have my Spider powers, right? Does anyone have a strange gland that appeared on the inside of your wrist? If you press it some weird goop sort of oozes out of it. Unless you press really hard, then it's like a spider web?

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Fort Neill is officially off the grid, running on clean energy, thanks to one brand new, bouncing, baby Stark Energy Reactor. You're welcome.

The switchover happened about a week ago, but Tony and I have spent the last few days monitoring for any interference or overall bad juju caused by the portal. As of this afternoon, we've given ourselves the green light.

Feel free to send any problems you may encounter our way. But there won't be any.

How's the arm holding up? Any adjustments needed?

May. 2nd, 2018


Okay guys, when people come out of this portal, we get a set of keys with them. There's no address or any indication of where this place is.

I need you guys to work double on figuring that out. See if there's some kind of portal surge that just materializes housing or something. Even if we have a bunch of people arrive, we can still take the keys and check those places out so that by the time the vaccine has done its thing, they've got a place to go.

I think when I am done with high school, I would like to study zoology at the university. It is almost the same as being a Magizoologist except I will not always be studying magical creatures. I would like to be able to study very many creatures. It sounds very lovely.

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who helped during these last few weeks while the Resettlement Bureau was getting on its feet. The primary goal of the organization is simple: greet new arrivals and set them up with what they'll need to get on their feet here. That means paperwork, helping them acclimate to Tumbleweed and Earth, finding their housing. The secondary goal is to study the portal, to see if there is a way we can figure out its agenda, where it came from, how to stop certain creatures from coming through or at the least, being prepared when they do.

These are now paid positions. If you were volunteering before, just come see me if you want to transition to paid.

You can see how outlook and agenda here.

Our open positions are as follows, and yes, they do come with health benefits. [OOC NOTE: If you are on here in a position, you'll need to comment here to get the ball ICly rolling, please!]

Tiny, I wanted to thank you for establishing the food bank. I'd like to work directly with you to help those who first arrive who won't have a paycheck for a week or so. The Resettlement Bureau can help, but you've already got that in place and it would help foster relations with others. Do you have plans to make it an actual charity?

Tony (and Tiny), any ideas on a time frame for the reactor?


There's lots of people on the internet who make doll clothes and jewelry and they're really really pretty and better than the ones the dolls come with. Like all these ones and this lady. Look how nice this dress is!

Anyway I'm really glad JJs and Fortescues are still here especially since there's less than two months of school left and maybe one of them will give me a job.

Apr. 17th, 2018


I'm gonna lay this out there. We have no science department right now, so we have no idea where the portals came from, why they showed up, if they're tied to anything we might have done, or if the disappearances have anything to do with the portals.

I know there's a lot of science types out there, but we are severely lacking in equipment, and we're still talking funding with those of the Displaced who offered there help. If you'd like to be included on budget talks because you're interested in helping us fund the place, that can be arranged, just let me know.

For now, we're still handling everything on a volunteer basis.

ETA: This includes magical studies too.

We might need a bigger science department then I thought. We were not prepared at all for those portals to open up around town. Thankfully, the Displaced stepped up, like they always do, but we need to find out if there's a way we can get some kind of advanced warning. Some kind of readings that might give us a hint at where a portal might open up.

So, I legit get that a lot of people are feeling really shitty right about now, and the ship is kinda lame in both senses of the word. But I'm kinda feeling like distractions might be good for the masses. And because I cannot with my suite mate right now

That said, what activities are still functional? Can anyone tell? That symposium room is totally big enough we could make it a mini-movie theatre for like a night if anyone could set up projection stuff. Anyone up for light-hearted mindless movies that mean people around but not talking?

Help me out here it's too much like.

Everything is so sad. I want to make it better but I'm not very good at projecting happy and there isn't an ice cream sundae big enough to help.

We're probably going to need parts to fix the engine(s). I'm going to start taking collections of tech that you can part with in the school. Anything at all from remotes to televisions to bits and bops in your electric toothbrushes. We just don't know what we're going to need.

I'll be keeping a list of who donates what so that when we get this restored we can return your items.

This is my new doll that I got in this port from one of the places through a bean portal.

unfiltered image )

You can't really tell in the picture but she's not very tall. She has brown hair and has a very long green dress with a coat over it that's the same colour but the edges where it buttons up and the sleeves are a different fabric that's like dark blue with some flowers, and then the hems are red. She's holding a little photo in a golden frame and there's a black fur over one shoulder and I really like her hat, it matches her dress too and it has a big feathery white bit as decoration. She looks very fashionable and if she was real she would probably be rich.

I'm going to get a good collection.

I wish we didn't have to leave. I really like the Elves and the Hobbits the most. I spent time helping in the gardens in Hobbiton, and I spent time reading some elven texts. They even gave me a really pretty necklace, and the stone matches my eyes perfectly. Gondor and Rohan are really amazing as well. It's hard to say which place is my favorite.

Um so Gwen the spider one is in the hospital because she got hit really hard and she has minor spinal fractures but those will be okay she just has to wear a brace for a while and also when she hit her head it damaged her occipital lobe which means she can't see very well and they told her she had a concussion and they would do more tests later and gave her more drugs so she went back to sleep but they were lying, they already know it probably won't get better.

It might be nothing, but I overheard more than one Atlantean showing concern that talks with a neighboring country are breaking down. Or not going as expected. It varied from person to person. To me that sounds ominous, hopefully we haven't sailed into an unstable political situation.

Since we've mostly got our battle plans sorted I want to talk about evacuations as well. There's getting to be a lot of us and in a crisis things get confusing so knowing in advance what to do will go a long way to making sure it goes right.

• Almost all the time when an evacuation alert goes out there's not going to be time to do much except get to the lifeboats on Deck 6. You should probably check where they are at some point so you know where you're going.
• A lot of us have pets and I know no one wants to leave them behind. If they're out with you that's not much of a problem but otherwise you should pick one person per suite to go and grab them if there's enough time. We have to be realistic that sometimes there won't be, and I'm not just saying that for everyone else - I always have at least my budgies that are confined to their cage and sometimes my Eevee stays behind too.
• Relatedly, Rogue suggested that it might be a good idea to pack a go bag for emergencies so that if there is a little more time you can grab it instead of trying to figure out in the moment what to bring. You shouldn't need to worry about food and things, so it's better to pack light so we don't take up too much space. A few clothes, medications, things you really don't want to leave behind.

Now the important bit, not leaving anyone behind. We need a way to know who's already boarded a lifeboat and who hasn't, which Tony should be able to do using the bracelets. (I'm assuming?) We also need a couple of people for each floor who can do a quick sweep to make sure everyone's left and to make sure the lifeboats are boarded efficiently. You will most likely be the last people to leave, so keep that in mind. For floors 1-4 and 7-10 that'll probably be banging on doors, for the others a quick check of all the public areas. Then when that's done, get to Deck 6 to help load.

I've only evacuated towns and cities before so please weigh in on any of this ^ if you think there's a better way of doing things. And if you want to be a floor monitor or floor captain or whatever, sign up here. 18+, minors should go directly to the lifeboats. Everyone else make sure you know who's responsible for the floors you spend most time on.

adding: Since each accommodation deck has their own lifeboat, based on Anakin's experience it's best to stick to what's been assigned. People responsible for clearing the matching floors will also have the final call on when to launch, even if someone's missing. So, make sure you have a decent idea of who should be there and make note of whether any of them are clearing public decks and can be expected to take a little longer. Tech, I'd still like a way to check people off as they board lifeboats if we can so we know if anyone hasn't turned up. The way people come and go it's going to be more reliable than memory.

Other things people have pointed out
• Make sure your floor coordinators know who's in charge of fetching pets so they can expect who'll be around
• There was talk about swimming lessons for anyone who doesn't know how which I would definitely recommend, having literally been marooned on a Caribbean island
• Gansey's going to check with the robots to see if there's a way to teach some people to row. We do have a couple people with water powers which would be the ideal but let's try not to rely on it.
