Alrighty has anyone else noticed the uptick in ravens flying around and the complete lack of any other dang animal in the woods? I live in them and usually we see a variety of different ones. And I know its winter but they were still milling about in January. Now its like they're all gone.

Also I'm pretty sure the forest got bigger.

Jan. 27th, 2020


Q, we're totally doing this.

Who else is in?

Jan. 21st, 2020


I've baked, I've downloaded Muppet Treasure Island and I've thought up aforementioned Muppet Treasure Island themed cocktails. All of this is to say that you should really come indulge me with your company.

What do you think?

Fen, dearest, it's been nearly eight months. Do you think it is safe to say we're in the clear and perhaps we can start discussing a name?

Did you want to go tour some schools here soon? Or are you thinking University of Tumbleweed is going to be the one?

Two weeks late, but I just wanted to thank everyone again for coming to the grand opening of Satyrs. For any future events, Satyrs will be private parties or even catering. We're open everyday for a meal starting at 10AM, then a break mid afternoon (3PM to 5PM), between lunch and dinner, and then we'll be open till midnight on Thursdays to Saturday, and till 11PM on Sundays to Wednesdays.

And you know what? I just realized the awkwardness of naming the restaurant Satyrs and having it open in the month of January because it was around this time last month that I remember actually BEING a satyr on another island. Haha, I told myself I would never think about that time again and yet. YET.

I swear to god there is no magic like that on the restaurant.

Hey, Q. It looks like Margo and Alice are getting drinks. We could join them? Or do something else if you want?


Well, this is worse than two furries fucking in a funhouse in front of children. Who am I supposed to get drunk with now?

You wanna do that alone thing you do, or you wanna get shitfaced with a couple friends?

This might be the most magnificient piece of television I've ever seen.

Hearing my face with an American accent is a bit of a trip. I'm going to practice.

Have we reached the end of the moping stage yet? Because there's a movie at the cinema about the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and you're going to take me.

Nov. 24th, 2019


I've finished attaching the room next to ours. We've now got our very own doorway so we don't have to go into the hall to get to the nursery. Simple enough charm, thanks to Alice's notes, so I don't think it'll be hard to remove a few years down the line when we might not want an adjoining room.

We should really discuss paint and theming. I can't commit to furniture until we pin this down.

And we ought to start prepping for Christmas. At least when it comes to Fray.

We have a few extra days off work here shortly. How's about we make a day trip?

Never thought I would have to protect the plants against snow at any given time of the year here and yet HERE WE ARE, snow event number.. 2??

So the restaurant wasn't close to being done earlier and then it ended up in shambles after the attack. That's what I get for not realizing I probably should have foreseen a monster attack and warded it up.

But it's in the process of getting fixed up, and should hopefully be able to be opened up within the next two months? I'm spending the day working a few things off the menu so if anyone's looking to be taste-testers or just a general distraction, I'm located at [address].

I know I'm the last person you want to speak to right now, but I just wanted to say I'm really sorry.


[Quentin Coldwater + Gabby Teller]
I saw. I'm so sorry. I'm not a lot of fun right now but let me know if you want company.

This sucks. I know you just recently got Ben back. He could still come back, and even if it is as a ghost again, he can be brought back to the world of the living. It's not a big comfort, I know. Let me know if there's something I can do.

Recovery has been a little slower and more frustrating than I thought. I'm planning on coming back, but I might be at Tony's for another week or two. At least until things feel a little more normal. I just wanted to keep you posted.


We've got the Portals reconnected. I could be there in five minutes. Say the word and I will be. Or, better still, I can hold off and come bearing the most decadent of comfort foods. You want baked mac and cheese? I can do baked mac and cheese.

I'd say copious amounts of alcohol, too, but I don't think that's the call. But if it is the call, tell me. I'll come gifting copious amounts of alcohol.

I've offered to bring food to you and Q. Is there something you might like? I tossed out mac and cheese as a safe Quentin option but I don't know your possible go to comfort foods.

And shall I bring you wine or hard liquor?

I'm probably on my way to New York tonight. Do you have people? Do you want to go drink? Comfort mac and cheese?

I love you.

[Eliot Waugh Squared]
I'm going out of town for the weekend. To New Jersey. I just didn't want to disappear and not tell anyone. Considering how things are. If anyone asks, I wanted someone to be able to know.

[Julia Wicker]
Just checking in. How're you doing?

Sep. 25th, 2018


I very much enjoyed our weekend together. I absolutely hate that we had to leave. But I owe Quentin a trip and I wanted to see how you felt about that?

Just so you know, I'm still suffering from telling the truth. It's a terrible affliction, but I've made my peace with it because it's brought me to a new stage in my relationship with Gaby and because it's given me clarity on a few things going on in my head.

Like you.

This truth telling business was the reason why I couldn't talk to you before. Eliot's told me that he spoke to you about how whatever it was that I was afraid of ruining was probably a sex thing, and, at the least, not anything terrible. He was right, mostly. It's not terrible and it's more of a love thing and I think I'm ready to admit that I care for you more than a friend.

Gaby is aware of these things and as long as I'm honest with her about what goes on here, we'll play it by ear, but I'm no longer content to hide this truth from you or myself. Frankly, it was making me miserable and while it may still ruin things because I'm not sure how you feel or what you want, I need you to know this before I invited you out to Point Pleasant for the trip we were suppose to have taken last weekend.

So. There it is, cards on the table. And so there are no surprises, I've made this viewable to Gaby. If that's not alright with you, please let me know.


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

Hello beautiful world. And Tumbleweed.

Did I miss anything not on the network?

I also need recs for someone to come over and do a very important mani-pedi house call. When Margo wakes up, it will be flawless.

Sep. 18th, 2018


[Voice to text; after nightfall]
I am tired of this.

Sep. 16th, 2018


It seems you've all been affected because you helped us who were taken. What can I do to help you all?

Quentin, you have my sincerest gratitude. I'll need to see you once this is over.
I suppose a roll call is in order.


It wasn't the fairies. Illya's really gone. If anyone needs any assistance in whatever is happening right now, please let me know. I could use the distraction so I don't punch another hole in the wall.

Event: Unseelie Court Ball

WHAT: The Unseelie Court invites you to a ball. (Make sure to tag your characters as you add them). Masks arrived shortly after the Abducted were taken the prior night.

Welcome, welcome! )


Apparently New York was still within the reach of the fairies. Illya has disappeared.

Has there been any word from or about those who have been taken?

How do you feel about the 8th for New York? I can get us tickets for Hamilton right now if that works for you. The 15th also seems doable on the ticket front.

Thank you for the plants, Fray. I like mine immensely. What does yours look like?

When do you think you'll have a spare few hours?

When you were in the hotel, you got memory updates, didn't you?

I'd like to have a little party at my place this Sunday for Rogue. I'm completely willing to take direction from those that know what she prefers, otherwise, it'll be a pretty standard birthday - cake, food, decorations, music, and alcohol for those of drinking age.

So how old are you turning?

I want to start out by thanking everyone who helped out with the EPS' summer survival course. It's concluded for now, though anyone still using the EPS' childcare facilities can continue on as per normal. But I'd like to talk about the school year that's coming up.

The 2018-2019 school year will be starting on September 4, 2018.

The Ellie Phimister is a charter school in Council 7 serving grades K-12 started. We're staffed by the displaced for the displaced. We offer small class sizes and are capable of accommodating students with non-traditional educational backgrounds, little or missing schooling, or special accommodations. We are understanding of chaos caused by the portal in ways Tumbleweed High in town may not be and are fully prepared to transition our courses to other settings should the portal take us there. Additionally, we have experience working with powered individuals in a school environment and offer training in superpowered control as needed.

We offer a wide variety of coursework at the high school level, adhering to Texas Education Agency guidelines for college preparedness as well as an elementary and young child program for pre-school aged children.

This year we will be extending our young child program and providing an afterschool program in tandem with the FNRB. Our summer survival program will be converted to a more in-depth course.
Sign ups for classes are starting now.

Additionally, we're looking to replace some faculty positions: namely Computer Science, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Psychology, and in our Elementary school*.

*[OOC Note: Feel free to sign your students up for 6-8 classes. Or people for teaching. If you'd like to add a course, feel free (or ping me) so long as it's quasi-believable.]

[Filtered to Cable]
I was wondering if you'd like to help me teach the survival course.
[Filtered to EPS faculty (updated when people are added)]
Everyone enjoy this week off. We'll open on the 27th to set up classrooms and start on development though we'll try to keep meetings brief enough to get us all out at a decent time.

Does anyone have any questions / concerns?
[Filtered to Emma Frost, Rogue, Kitty Pryde]
Emma-- When you get back in town, we should probably talk about this.

Thor is gone.


Attention, attention!

Some of you are aware that Eliot Waugh's birthday is this weekend. It's kind of a big deal, and he really enjoys being the center of attention. So let's give that to him with a big party at the Cottage on Sunday. It'll start in the afternoon with BBQ and just hanging out and go on into the night where things will likely get a little raunchy. If you're coming with children, maybe stick to the daytime festivities.

Anyone who would like to assist in the BBQing and setting up would be greatly appreciated.

See you there! (Recommended that you don't arrive before noon. Some of us don't bother getting dressed until then.)


[Eliot Waugh (canon)]
I realize I haven't checked in since I came home. So I'm checking in. Uh. So hi. I've been a bit busy with something since I got back, but it's vaguely under control. I just didn't want to bother you with it since you've got all your stuff going on and I know you're busy. But don't worry. We'll I'll be okay and home once I feel I can be. If you need me, though, just let me know.

I'll get you caught up on New Orleans stuff soon, too. I mean, I guess I can catch you up here.

[Julia Wicker]
Hey, you. This is my day late check in.

Added in later after Eliot 2 is in bed

[Kurt Wagner]
It's late, but I figured I'd check in and say hi in case I should have already and I haven't. I've been a bit late with check ins.

[Betsy Braddock]
I realize it’s late, so I’m sure you’ll see this sometime tomorrow. If you don’t mind or you’re not to busy in a couple days or whenever. Eliot said you were his top pick after Kylo for the memory stuff. Since we run the risk of entirely forgetting ourselves. I know it’s probably a lot to ask and I don’t really know what to give in return for it, but if you don’t mind, I probably need to stop stalling and do it or I’ll be fucked later. If not, I understand. I just [...] don’t want to forget who I am is all.

I'm lodging a complaint - no one's thrown a party in awhile. Someone fix this.

I'm heading out of town this weekend with Quentin and possibly Margo. I've made some ready to eat meals and they're in the freezer. Just pop them into the oven, the times for how long are on each container.

Jul. 28th, 2018


I'm Eliot. I understand you've already met someone who shares a strong resemblance in name, face, and hopefully an excellent taste in vests and alcoholic beverages. Some of you have been here for some time, and I am hoping you can help me.

This isn't my first time being pulled into another world, or my second, or even third, or forth, and so on. Some of you have also been pulled into other worlds which may or may not have been purgatory like before ending up here. I'm trying to get some information on my friends? They might have mentioned a Hell Hotel? Hotel Kairos?

Paul Rovia, aka Jesus
Claire Novak
Gretel (yes, that one)
Judith Grimes
Rowena Ravenclaw
Godric Gryffindor

Just looking to see if anyone else made it out. Any information you might have would be deeply appreciated.

So, hello. I've just spent the last two years in a semi-sentient, murderous hotel. How're things?

Alright, Tumbleweed, anyone out there do freelance webdesign and/or graphic design?

Right, so, I want to go to Mamma Mia but I'm willing to be a good friend and wait for Bambi's return before doing so. In the mean time, who wants to go to Across the Universe in two weeks?
