So I guess that happened.

I'm not good of this sort of thing, but since I brought it up, they/them pronouns for now.

Feb. 19th, 2020


I definitely enjoyed last night. We should do it again sometime when all this Maleficent mess is over and things are hopefully more settled. Otherwise, I guess we'll just work around it.

Thanks for smoothing over that awkwardness from last night, by the way. Slight misstep.

backdated to ~feb 10/11 ish?

Clover, it was lovely to spend some time with you yesterday. I hope you enjoyed yourself.

Qrow, you were missed on the shopping expedition but I do hope you like the clothes we picked out for you. What activities do you enjoy?

Also, if you'll indulge my curiosity, which of you won that bet?

Feb. 9th, 2020


Hello, inhabitants of Tumbleweed. My name is Clover Ebi. My friend and I have just arrived and, despite the arcane technology, I have been informed this is the best way to reach out to the rest of you who are here. I believe 'the Displaced' was the current term used to describe us all, but please correct me if I'm wrong. I'd like the opportunity to get to know the people here better, but I understand to get information, sometimes one must give information, so let me start it off.

I hail from the kingdom of Atlas. I'm the leader of the kingdom's Ace Operatives and a huntsman. I have heard this place is different from Remnant and you do not have much need for Huntsman and Huntresses as there are no Grimm. I'm sure I can take my skills from home and apply them wherever necessary should we be here for a while. Not that there's anything to go back to for me

My friend, Qrow Branwen, is a huntsman as well. He may be a little less optimistic than the regular person, but he's really not as bad as he makes himself out to be. Don't take his words to heart. He doesn't mean half of what he says.

Please, if someone could direct me somewhere that I could find reasonably priced and well made clothing, I would appreciate it. I came with only one outfit and it is, rather unfortunately, destroyed and soaked in blood. And any tips for a new outfit for a man who wears a cloak that looks like it's been half eaten by a Grimm would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I'd like to give a thank you to the medical team for setting me straight and for whoever made those handy potions.

There seem to be consequences to [...] poking the bear. Count me among those who've lost one of their senses.

I haven't been able to hear anything for the last ten minutes.

Will you come and take a look at me? Then we can decide if I should also be examined by one of the clinicians here. Unless they've looked me up, they don't know about my [...] current condition.

Feb. 2nd, 2020


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.

Q, we're totally doing this.

Who else is in?

Jan. 24th, 2020


I have been pondering what it is I want to do, while here. Which makes me curious about everyone else's thoughts. What's the thing you're most proud of/glad to have done since coming here? What do you most still want to do? What can you do that you cannot at home?

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.

Two things:
1. If you happen to be wondering how to deal with the geese after you collect them, I'm pretty sure I have a couple of recipes around to make some really good dishes for a weekend family dinner.

2. I'm going to just go ahead and announce now that I'm having a 25% off sale for anyone who books me before February 1st for makeup and hair for their lovely Valentine's Day dinner date.

Unless you're vegetarian and vehemently against and offended by people eating animals, during which I may have just shot myself in the foot for making that first announcement along with my second.

Jan. 20th, 2020


I've been getting slowly more used to food that isn't, well, protein bars.

What do people recommend? I've had cakes and those were good. And mac and cheese. Also something called a burger?

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.

Weird question but you wouldn't happen to have veritaserum lying around, would you? Or a method that you all use to reverse engineer a truth-spitting potion?

Every December I've not had to set foot in the foul damp that's London I've considered an escape worthy of being celebrated, and I'm very happy to report that this will make nine in a row. This year I have much more to celebrate than avoiding a chill, so please allow me to introduce myself by expressing my gratitude at finding myself here. It seems a wonderful sort of place, and while I've no doubt I'll make a perfect fool of myself sooner rather than later, I do that in the city, too. I hate to begin by begging everyone's patience, but it won't be the first time, nor the last. I can only assure you I do my best to be a quick learner.

Well, my turn to show up in a Hallmark movie. Strangely enough, I realized that of all works I starred in back home, I never did a Hallmark movie. General Christmas movie? Yes. I played Belle in one adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

Don't think I would have acted in one though if anyone asked me, but at least now I suppose I have the experience indirectly!

Dec. 15th, 2019


Hello everyone. I heard a secret that we're the most interesting thing to happen to this town. Some of you I've met before. If you met me a few weeks back, I remember you. If you didn't, I'm Declan Lynch, lately of Washington DC. And it'd be a pleasure to get to know you.

Like many of you, I'm fortunate enough to arrive and have a place to stay. But I would enjoy being an honest man and finding some kind of job here. Most of my experience is in one kind of office setting or another, but I'd welcome branching out in a place like this. I can handle retail, tourism, accounting, lattes, you name it. If I need to, I'll learn how to do it.

I could make a resume, but like most of you here, my references wouldn't be available for comment.

Now that business is taken care of, I'd love to hear about you.

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?).

So is this a life of leisure situation? You've all this technology, doesn't seem to be a need to work, we all just exist?

Belated as it is, we are having a birthday celebration for the love of my life, my dear husband, Rhy Maresh. It is, as ever, a gift to have each other here, and in that spirit everyone is invited. The only gift we ask of you is your company this Saturday, November 16th beginning at 4pm at the beautiful Playa Miramar. A portal will be set up at our residence to take you there, and you are welcome to join us by other means.

There will be food, drinks, and music as late into the night as you wish. If you would like to spend the night or two as well, let us know, and we shall arrange rooms for you.

We hope to see you there.

Waking up from a dreamless sleep is quite an experience. One I'm not too eager to repeat. Losing six days and not even realising it has put me in that perpetual state of "I know I'm forgetting something." Yes, Clara Oswald, you're missing six days, and you feel like you're constantly behind on everything.

I'm sorry to my students and the staff at the school.

Finally, those accursed thorn scrapes and punctures have finished healing. It never takes me so long to heal from something so minor, but it seems the fairy magic behind them also caused them to heal at a slower pace than that to which I am accustomed.

Now that I am free of those marks, I will be resuming assignations at Carpe Noctem. Due to the legal status in this place, I suspect I shouldn't even advertise that, so please contact me privately and not publicly with any interest.

    If anyone should need assistance running errands while they remain cursed or in recovery from their curse, please know that I'd be happy to assist you.

    Lucy, you discussed present-day apparel the other day. I have found a couturier, Miss Jan Van Dyne, who does exceptional work. She is also understanding when someone is accustomed to very different fabrics, shapes, and supports than what is commonly found here. I also noticed that you mentioned music. Will you tell me more about which instruments you play? Perhaps we have some in common.

Hello, people of tumble weed, or at least the displaced people of tumble weed.

First order of things. Is there anyone out there handing out loans? Not handing them out like candy, of course, because you need to trust that you'll be getting that money back, of course. And trust me, I have a job and I can pay it back in full eventually.

Second order of things. Who knows the ins and outs of getting and owning a service dog? Particularly how I get started on that?

If anyone here is short on food, please do reach out. We have more than enough to feed ourselves and can assist others. The Botanical Gardens are looking much better, thank you to those responsible for that. Given a little more time, they will be open to the public for a fee. There will be a discount for those displaced. If you are considering opening a business here, we do have some shops that may be able to fit your needs or be renovated to do so.

While one of the bus routes does run near Station, I am interested in seeing a form of more instantaneous travel between Station and Tumbleweed set up. This system should be accessible to those who do not use magic themselves. Would any of your magic be amenable to that? What compensation would you be interested in, in return for that work?

I would like to invite all of you to a gathering for Alucard's birthday, next Tuesday August 7th, from 1pm to 5pm. There will be lunch provided, as well as wine and cake, and music and good company.

There is no requirement to bring anything except your lovely selves, but if you would like to get him a present and are looking for ideas, feel free to ask me. Again, please don't feel obligated. Your company would be the best gift.

I would like to order a birthday cake from your bakery. I will need it on August 7th, around midday. Do you deliver? Otherwise, I can plan to pick it up. I will, of course, pay you for both the cake and any delivery fee if that is something you offer.

I have a proposition for you. Would either or both of you be willing to do a performance at Alucard's birthday party? He very much enjoys your music. I would be happy to pay you.

» Hello, this is Rhy. I have a proposition for you, if you have a moment.

*OOC: if you have had a good conversation/interaction with Alucard at any point, consider yourself on this list, unless you have made Rhy's list of Party Poopers: Holland, Michael, 12th Doctor/River Song, Jarvis. Don't worry, guys, you'll still probably get invited to the next one he throws for all the Displaced (except Holland, Holland is permanently banned)
