ooc: Allura has the curse of disbelief, believe nothing she says!

I have warned the mice about going out and about recently, and they scoffed at what I said. Actually scoffed. Said they didn't believe they would be in any danger. Nonetheless, I still told them to stay inside and they actually said they didn't believe that was necessary!

They are wandering around somewhere and they are normally very self-sufficient, and they have often saved the rest of US when we needed it, so if anyone could just keep a few extra eyes and ears out for them, that would be appreciated. Pidge, I believe they had mentioned coming by your place.

In search of job leads. Physical labor is fine. My condition is that the armor stays on.


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.

Since it is the end of the month, I was wondering if anyone had actually managed to continue to stick to their resolutions?

I am checking in on both of you. How are you doing?

Time moves so strangely here. I keep almost saying I just got here, but in like two months it'll be a year.

I haven't traveled (to other countries OR worlds) nearly as much as I expected to when I showed up, but I hear that if patterns continue that might change soon.

So last year, there was a convention in this area, for soon-to-be brides, and while I had no intentions of getting anything out of it (even if Lance had assumed something then), they had asked me to participate in modeling a few wedding dresses. Those wedding dresses (three in total) ended up in my possession, though they never called me back for them.

They've still been sitting around in my closet for all this time, unused by anyone in this household, of course, so I was wondering... what can be done? Would anyone like to take them? I don't want to toss things out especially considering we all here already have very little since landing here.

Similarly, the portal also gifted me with elven wine this past Christmas. The last time I had enjoyed it was when Sif, Loki, Thor, and I had gone about in Middle Earth together. Considering they (or at least the versions I was close to) are no longer here, I'm not entirely sure if I have the inclination to enjoy these again.


You know, space junk falls out of the sky at basically twice a day. It's too bad I can't offer to clean up the space junk for them. Maybe I can do it on the sly. Just haul it toward the sun. Think anyone would notice?

Hey Colonel. You got plans tonight?

I thought we could go see that Dr. Doolittle movie with the guy who looks like our Tony for laughs.

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.

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?).

I'm back, but... I don't remember being here before. That is a very strange thing to hear, that I've been somewhere that I don't recall, but it is good I heard it from my sister.

Never thought I would be on Terra. It seems... nice.

I'm sorry that I failed you.

There is likely no place around here that would be open at this hour for last minute things to buy for a dinner tomorrow, would there?

I did not realize how soon this holiday arrived.

Filter: Keith & Pidge
How does everyone keep going with dinners when I wanted to plan something, since I had decided to cancel any chance of a Halloween party last month. I'm sorry. I just lost track of it all.

Nov. 21st, 2019


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?

We're still in Texas?

What is this process? I am getting incredibly tired of being myself in the mornings only to transform back into a cat at night. There is far too much white hair in the control room! I don't even shed that much hair as an Altean! And I have an incredibly limited time to actually be able to read and do my homework in the evenings.

ooc: backdated to last night

"Hello? I dare not ask if this is normal for this place, but I do hope that there are still people who have already left the ball to see this. I don't know how this happened. My mice have scattered the second they saw me. What do I do?"

Sep. 4th, 2018


ooc: let's backdate this to this weekend, maybe Friday

Back in Altea, I only ever needed a governess to teach me as I was growing up, and unfortunately (also obviously), she is not here. Therefore, I had decided to apply to some classes in a community college here.

I've done as much research as I can for how the process works here but is there anything else you can offer me as advice to make this experience easier on myself?

[Friends and Family]

Should you care to assist in making this place less dreary, meet me at Hyrule Castle no later than noon on Saturday. The following items need attention:

  • Drink
  • Food
  • Seating
  • Tables
  • Decoration

I shall also require volunteers to keep those who find themselves deep in their cups out of any significant trouble. I.e., property damage.


Do remember that the people of Midgard frown upon smashing drinkware in this era.

I believe this is what you call pet-shaming? Well, I'm pet-shaming. I should also add that my Pokemon has also taught that habit to the rest of my mice. And this has to happen at five in the morning!

Hey so, Lance’s birthday is coming up next weekend. I was thinking maybe it’d be nice to do something that’s just us for part of it. Like maybe a trip down to the beach maybe Friday and staying overnight there. I mean, we got the car we did so everyone could fit. Maybe a bigger party after when we get back with all of Lance’s friends too. What do you think?

We've got a potential solution. Julia, when can you get here?

We've come up with a possible solution. Once it's tested, I'll let you all know. Figured you'd want the update.

Hi. My name is Alice Quinn. We've not spoken.

Myself and my associates have been working to try to reverse the transformations that were caused by the fruit you found. We're testing it soon but if it works, would you like one of us to come to you and help the effects be reversed? Do you know of anyone else who has been affected or that took the berries from you? I've already been in touch with Pidge, Hunk, Keith and Julia.

Jul. 12th, 2018


I know you probably---

Whatever, it is fine.

Did any of you all eat those berries that were found? Julia brought to my attention--- One of my friends did and I wanted to know if any of you did and if you had a reaction?




I'm not freaking out or anything, but hey did anyone else WAKE UP WITH FURRY CAT EARS? CAT EYES? BECAUSE UH

[Friends*-Viewable to Percy Weasley]

Me and Percy have spoken, and we've decided to end our relationship and remain friends. We've come to this decision together, and while I have to admit some sadness on my part I have a wish to remain friends with him. I cannot say I am alright, breaking up is never an easy thing no matter what, but I will be.

If anyone is up for ice cream and movies, I should be most grateful. And it must be known that there are no ill feelings, and that Percy will remain welcome in my home and that he will remain dear to me.

I had heard that this week is the time for cookouts and celebration for your country's freedom. I know I had told some that I was excited to see how this would turn out [...] however, I must rescind my plans to join as I had said I would. I've taken ill recently and I wish to spend these days in the comfort of my castle while it's still here.

From what I've heard, however, cookouts seem to be a thing over the next two months anyway, so I will be glad to join when I'm better.

Jun. 29th, 2018



I know you're all worried, and I'm sorry for that. I'm okay.

I do think that we all need to meet to discuss the new memories I now have. Would everyone be able to make it to the Holts tomorrow afternoon? And has anyone else remembered anything new?

Also, as a warning, I look a little different now and I know that might be a bit of a shock. I've lost my prosthetic and my hair's now entirely white.

Jun. 22nd, 2018


Sometimes I love the internet. Pride dice on Kickstarter. So I'll be getting me some of those.

Sidenote, we should definitely play some kind of campaign. We = if you would want in on this and Matt Holt.

Jun. 23rd, 2018


Probably should have thought of this earlier, but I've had a talk with my manager and she's cleared me to be out of the office Tuesday afternoon to do a college prep seminar at the community centre. Anyone who is thinking about enrolling, whether you're looking at the community college, Tumbleweed University campus, University of Texas, or something else entirely, if you haven't been to university before this will probably be useful.

Since we've got people who aren't from a world similar to this, I'll start with half an hour on the complete basics. That'll be 1pm-1.30pm, so people who know vaguely how university works can skip that part. From 1.30 we'll go through enrollment, picking a major (or not picking one) and choosing classes, as well as online study and how that works.

So. Tuesday, 1.00 or 1.30pm, community centre.

Tis a bit early still, but I should like to let those I care for know that I shall be out of town next week, for the weekend. I shall have this device, and Hugin and Munin can always find me if there's a need.


I had a thought, after some research I did on the city I am to visit. Tis one of great many museums, and art, so if you should like come with me I had already intended to visit them but tis always better to see such things with someone who knows more of it.


Would you like anything from this Chicago?

Added later: [Thor]

I've invited Torunn to accompany me later in the month, when I return to Chicago. Mayhaps, you and Valkyrie would like to come along?

Added later as well: [Queen Frigga, All Mother]

Your Majesty, I should be honored to extend an invitation to accompany me, Torunn, Thor, Valkyrie, and Loki to Chicago near the end of the month. June 24th, to be exact. T'would be a bit of a family gathering, to see all the sights.

I want to give Sif a gift. We were discussing birthdays and when I asked her when was hers, she told me she doesn't remember. I celebrated a false birthday not long ago because Earth time and Altean time is very different, and so I felt like Sif deserves something special as well. So I come to you for suggestions since you have known her for far longer than I have. How shall I treat her?

Filter: Voltronverse + Alice + Quentin
Since you all know more about Earth than I do, if I was to give a special woman a grand treat to make up for any birthday we may have missed, what are some of your ideas?

I still have no idea what I'm going to do with this money the portal gave me. Part of me wants to be responsible, and use it to buy a car, or save it for school. Part of me wants to blow it on something ridiculous, like a trip to Disneyland or somewhere I've never been.

With ball #3 coming up, I figured I would ask this question again and figure out what we are all planning on doing: will we going as a group including dates or would you all like to come separately to the party? I am okay with either one. I thought I'd ask if we all wanted to meet up prior to it, so nobody felt left out. Although I think everyone on the team is paired up already so I don't see any of you feeling left out at all.

I dropped a heavy box on my foot at work, and it broke on my foot. Didn't even hurt me at all. I can lift a car over my head without breaking a sweat. I shut a glass door, and it shattered.

I know I'm usually strong, but I'm never this strong. I don't want to go near anyone, because I'm suddenly worried I might accidentally hurt them.


Maybe we should do a headcount on who got what powers.

I seem to have my brothers, which I hope means he has my thunder.

Tell me now, what you've gained or lost.

The Grandmaster had the right idea after all. Day drinking sounds delightful. Sif, tell me you kept some of that wine from Middle-Earth. We might as well enjoy it while there's time. spoilers-ish )

Birthday celebrations among Altean royalty, I've learned, are vastly different from the way you celebrate it here. Our parties tended to be an extravagant event. Our castle was open to any and all inhabitants of ally planets, and representatives of each planet would give one gift to the birthday Altean.

I can't say I'm relieved to not partake in those -- I will always miss anything related to my people -- but, I've seen my fellow Paladins and friends celebrate their birthdays here, and I feel like a smaller close group of friends is more preferable. They also don't judge you if you decide to dress up for it either.

Also, I must say, Lady Congeniality was indeed correct. April 25th really is the perfect date.

Finals season is delightful. My inbox is overflowing with anxious emails. I hear there's even more chaos amongst the graduate students. Perhaps I should visit campus to observe.


I have made a friend:

I hear rumour there might be a place to board my Mareep, I was wondering what more is known of this. Tis best, I think, to leave him with our own. I take him out whenever I can, but I feel he needs a pasture, with plenty of place to roam. I am more then willing to pay for his care, and assure anyone that I do not plan to just leave him and plan to visit often.

And as promised both Bruce and the Princess of Wakanda will receive his wool. I do look forward to seeing what can be made of it and would like to see about a potential garment.

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.

I don't know what anyone's living situation or financial situation is like, but I just wanted to offer the Castleship for anyone who is momentarily looking for a place to stay if rent money is not a feasible thing right now.

Or, if you believe it will help, a number of elven gowns and tiaras came with me, and I have been told that they would sell for a really good price on eBay. I love them, yes, but I wish to offer aid to my Paladins and friends, first and foremost. You are much more important.
