The kids are gone too.

Are you busy tonight?


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

Is everyone back to normal yet? I'm looking for a bird who happens to be a colleague of mine. I'll be damned if I landed in this place and something happened to her and I couldn't even help her.

Two weeks, who's in?

So gearing up to October, a few reminders:
  1. We do not buy or sell Monster Mash.
  2. Halloween sound effect records are back on the playable list. And probably should have been months ago tbh.
  3. lmk your availabilities for ACL. Either here or if you want to head down to Austin. We're hosting an after thing with KOOP the first weekend

I will never take normal size for granted again. At least there were some cute doll clothes to wear.

I have [...] a lot of pearls. They've finally stopped falling out of my mouth, thankfully, but I don't really know what to do with them. If Annie were still here, she could

Does anyone here still make jewelry or clothing and want them for that? Or have another purpose for them? Otherwise I guess I'll just [...] put them somewhere where they can look pretty.

For people going after those that were taken, we've managed to acquire a cache of cold iron 9 mm bullets courtesy of Sam Winchester and Fen. We've got enough for a clip for everyone, so it's not a lot but enough for defensive shots. If you want some, lmk and I'll get some to you.

I have a possibly hypothetical question. If you attempt to read inside the military base from the outside, is it notably different from the sensation of attempting to read a room that has nobody in it?

The fine folks at Fort Neil Resetttlement Bureau still need your help.

As you know we’ve had quite a few disappearances lately, friends and loved ones that will be missed. It’s left some holes that need to be filled in our schedule. I know standing around as a guard isn’t glamorous. You may feel like your time and experience could be better used somewhere else. But as a guard, you’re the first line of defense for our community, and the first friendly face for new arrivals. The job is important and the pay is pretty good, too.

We provide training and work with whatever circumstances the portal throws our way. Please consider pitching in.

Thank you.

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 need a safe place to go to ground. The bananas are after me.

Considering I'm like two inches tall, Santiago, I'm going to need you to take care of a few things for me.

What kind of world did we fall in? I'm too small for my axe even.

But that said, if anyone's feeling up to helping a girl out, I wouldn't say no.

This lock up is a hell of a lot more easy going than the last one.

They told me I wasn't allowed to leave until I found a guardian. Except my parents aren't here. They also said the X-Men are here and that posting about it wasn't going to cause a shit-storm.

I'm Lauren Strucker. I arrived a few hours ago and I'd really like to not be locked up here any longer. How do I find a new guardian?

If you were to name one place on Earth you'd like to visit, where would you go and what would you see?

Isn't there some sort of superstition around the 13th of a month falling on a Friday?

Jul. 11th, 2018


Okay. Hilarious. That was almost original 40 years ago.

So everyone's had their fun. I think we should all agree to put an end to this junior high prank parade we seem to be stuck on.

I really miss the in ground defense lasers. Why did we get rid of those again?

Last night, my daughter arrived in this world. Alive. Unscathed. She has no memory of what happened to her and her mother. I would, for now, prefer to keep it that way and will be seeking a way to block any mentions of my world on the internet from any searches she makes on her tablet. I have not spoken to many of you here and I am perfectly content to keep it that way, but Nina is a great deal more inquisitive and outgoing than I am.

So should you find yourself speaking to her, please refrain from scarring her or you will find yourself in a regrettable position.

We now live in the boathouse.

With Nina's arrival, I find myself trying to explain who Anka Irene is to her. Through my admittedly lacking explanation of other worlds and other Eriks, she understands that she has a sibling.

Would it be too much to ask if Nina can come along to meet Anka Irene the next time I see her?

I should probably think about a new job. Apparently, swimming pool management does not appreciate it when you suddenly disappear for two weeks at the height of summer just as school lets out. Who knew?

Alternatively... I can probably remember enough agricultural sciences to seed oysters properly. That is slightly more of a long term investment though.

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?

[Filtered to Alice Quinn]
Hey. How are you holding up?


I obviously got the best power swap, because I'm a pirate captain now.

When I found out there was a pool in town, I applied to be a "lifeguard." It's exactly what it sounds like, you guard life, just not violently. I'm a strong swimmer, much stronger than I look. I think maybe I won't be in the water much, unless there's trouble.

ʀᴀᴠᴇɴ ʀᴇʏᴇs
I would like it if you come swimming with me sometime, it makes you feel weightless, like how you described spacewalks. You can do it even with your leg-- unless something has happened to your leg since I last saw you? Have you learned to swim?

How are you settling back in here?

Has anyone traveled with their Pokemon yet? It's become apparent that the residents of Tumbleweed are willing to look the other way when it comes to the peculiarities among those of us that are displaced, but does that extend beyond the town limits?

What would you say to a weekend away, just the two of us? It occurs to me that it's been three months since you and I became a you and I, and maybe we ought to celebrate.

Apr. 17th, 2018


As Anka Irene has around the clock babysitters, and I don't want to be a burden on Rogue, I secured a job.

It's not glamorous, but what can be after you were an Avenger? Housekeeping at Granny's Bed & Breakfast.

I feel weird posting publically

It's been a while since I've seen deep ocean life like there is here. Almost all of it actually has some kind of intelligence, not simply instinct. It hardly hurts that the water is so clean, either. That is something I'm going to miss when we get back to Tumbleweed. I can teleport to the ocean now thanks to Santa, but it won't be quite like this.

By now you're all aware that the ship has stopped. It would appear that we've been hit with an EMP, an electromagnetic pulse. Possibly two. All electronics appear to be off, though the network and tablets have been re-established so we can communicate easier. We're not sure the extent of the damage, but backup generators have not come online so those must have been hit too.

Right now, our priorities should be food and getting the ship back up and running. We have no idea where we are in terms of our next port. It could be a day, it could be two. Without food, two days becomes much longer than you want. Potable water is going to be an issue too. While there are bottled waters, we have no running water. On a ship like this, that means toilets, showers, and sinks will not work. They're all electrical.

If anyone has any skills, magical or otherwise, for keeping food at temperatures to keep it from going bad, that would be fantastic. Food storage, including refrigeration and the freezers are on level C. Medbay is on D. A & B are engine rooms, so that'll be fun to dig through.

Those EMPs came from somewhere and for some reason. I don't want to be caught blindsided. If you're specialized in tech, I'd prefer you working on the ship. If you aren't sure what you can do and want to help, patrols are good. Bucky 2 has a current list, but I think we should have more considering.

If you're down an arm or a leg due to the EMP, let us know. We'll try to get someone to help you as soon as possible.

Well I'm fairly sure I heard five beeps, and so far we've only heard about two disappearances.

I wonder how long before the steakhouse will be up and running again, if at all. It would be nice to have a nice meal there again before the cruise ends.

Maybe I'll sit in on karaoke night. No, I won't be singing

For those who are of royal descent, my friend Cassie and I are curious if royal food tasters were real or is that a myth?

Greetings! I am King Rhy Maresh, of the great country of Arnes. My country has enjoyed a long-standing tradition of communication with our closely related worlds, but this is the first I've heard of so many others, and the first time I've had the honor of getting to introduce myself to other worlders in person. I should very much like to meet all of you, and would be happy to accept any requests for formal, diplomatic audiences.

I also hope that if any of you should ever find yourselves in the country of Arnes, you will make your way to London and allow me to show you our hospitality.

And now that I've gotten the official things out of the way: I would be equally happy to meet you as friends, without any need for standing on ceremony or official titles. Please feel free to call me Rhy. I promise I'm not as stuffy as my king voice probably makes me sound.

Oh, and I shouldn't forget - you may have already met two others from Arnes, Kell and Alucard, who have been here longer than I have. Let me know if I need to apologize on their behalf; they both have a knack for finding trouble when I'm not around.

Hello, Mr. Solo! I've been informed that I will be joining Alucard in your shared quarters. I look forward to meeting you in person.

Okay, so - I had to get a shot, but it was given by polite robots instead of a pissed off nurse who's been on his feet for 14 hours and smells like puke.

There's an all you can eat buffet, but I'm stuck on a boat in the middle of nowhere.

There's a full casino, but you don't win any actual money so it's all kind of pointless.

I'm in the Medium Place, huh? Am I right or am I right? Oh fork me. At least tell me the alcohol isn't all room temperature and that the buffet includes shrimp.

Has anyone seen a gorgeous giraffe, a dorky guy in unnecessary glasses who can't make up his mind to save his own forking life, a spaz who's probably wearing a monk's outfit or a track suit, a white-haired guy who wears a bow tie all the time, or Janet around?

For those of you with inquiring minds, the room service in the brig leaves much to be desired. Also, pack a toothbrush.

Black Hayate has been enjoying the Shire while I interrog- read through the ship's brochure. It would appear this is a rather popular destination based on my research of past updates on this network. There is no mention of such a place in Amestris. It's quite lovely, I must admit. I'm a little ashamed I can't explore more, considering the ship is set to leave in a few days.

[Roy Mustang]
I've gathered more information since our arrival. Miss Rockbell has informed me that people can disappear and reappear from the group that resides on the ship. When they reappear they usually forget having ever been among these people, whereas there are occasions in which people have memories of having been here. They call themselves the Displaced, because every one of them has been taken from a different time period and location, not all of which are connected. Evidently, some dangerous events have happened over the course of this cruise. Miss Rockbell told me that they had previously been docked in a land called Atlantis and during their visit there was an attack by a neighboring kingdom. As far as I know there were no casualties, but many suffered extensive injuries. Further, weapon use is not allowed on the ship and anything resembling fighting or aggressive behavior will result in the robots throwing the guilty party into the brig for a set amount of time. You should also know that there are individuals on the ship who have special abilities. I spoke with a woman who can render herself and others or objects invisible, but she claims it isn't alchemy.

Another space portal. Let's not do that again.

Sentient nursebots, huh? I know what it looks like, but this one's not on me. Seriously, though. Someone has dramatically upped their LMD game. What are we talking, here? Thing 1 and Thing 2 are not particularly forthcoming. Programming could use some work.

So tell me, who else is on the guest list for this involuntary pleasure cruise? And is there scotch?

We were fairly laissez faire with Atlantis and got caught up in the middle of a war. Middle Earth already has the potential to be a lot more potentially violent. So let's talk safety in Middle Earth.

  • I don't want anyone going off on their own. Use the buddy system--at least--particularly if you are going outside of the Grey Havens.
  • If you are leaving the Grey Havens, make sure you are suitably equipped with equipment you have some idea how to use (or have someone in your party capable of defense). Communicate your position regularly in case you need to be picked up in an emergency.
  • Until we have a better feel of the attitude of the locals, keep your powers close to your chest.
  • Do not go looking for fights especially those of you who are still recovering from Atlantis. There is nothing cool about getting your ass kicked by a dragon.
  • If there are rumblings of conflict between the native groups, regroup at the ship ASAP.

    So, let's all have fun, but safe fun.

    "Water, water, everywhere..."

    Tragically, all my lofty goals and ambitions have been put on hold and there's only so much karaoke you can do (sorry, not sorry Rick).

    Who's up for a game of ship wide Assassin? We can figure out "weapons" and safe zones/times based on who signs up.

    ETA: • Say you're in if you want in.
    • Weapons TBD: Nerf guns and stuffed animals so far. Paintball grenades (thank Sabine). No water!
    • No powers, exceptions made for awesome. (Ask Ianto.)
    • Safe zones: School, patrols, cabins (duh).

    I really miss the open water. Swimming in the pool is not the same thing.


    So when the ship slows down for the fishing, would anyone mind helping Bella and I to get on and off the boat so we could swim in the ocean for a little while. We might even be able to help your fishing a little?
