So. Practically all the people who I considered friends are vanishing. That's pretty great. The universe must be getting such a thrill shitting on me.

While you are dealing with the disturbances others have posted about, please be advised to avoid [address] as there are also violent, terrifying monsters who appear to have been recently displaced here.

I'm sure it'll work itself out. At present they only appear to be threatening the lives and property of the locals.

Thank you.

For those who are not already regulars and familiar with the Howlett Gym schedule, I teach a class in nonmagical defense against magic, a particular specialty of mine and one that I would argue is exceptionally useful in a place like this. It is open anyone, including magical folk, who can alternate between magical sparring and nonmagical sparring, to help others practice and to learn the skills themselves to fight without their magic.

In fact, I would greatly appreciate more magic folk joining in, to give students a wide range of types of magic to learn to defend themselves against. Alina helps me regularly with her light magic, but as she is not allowed to actually cut anyone in half, she sometimes gets bored with blinding people.

If you have an ability that is technically non-magical but makes you more powerful than the average person, I might be willing to work you in as well. Let me know if you're interested, and we can discuss your abilities beforehand so that I can formulate a lesson plan. This has always been on a volunteer basis, or rather you would be considered a regular participant in the class; however, I might be willing to pay a few people out of my own pocket if they bring important skills to the table, especially since I know money is a concern for everyone right now. If that's something you're interested in, we can discuss it further, and of course the gym owner, Laura, would have to sign off on it as well.

The class meets Monday through Friday, 4 PM - 5:30 PM. I hope to see you there.


Attention Fellow Displaced:

For those of you literally fresh off the boat, you may come to [address] to pick up your new documentation. Driver's license, social security card, and whatever else you might need are all ready and waiting for you. If you are a minor, your guardian will need to be the one to pick up your paperwork.

Unfortunately my suggestion that some of the more famous or ridiculous names be replaced with something much more common, Severus Snape being both famous and ridiculous for Sylvester Snipes which is a much, much better name for example, was overruled. Only your actual names will appear on the documentation.

A number of folks here have worked very hard to replace whatever government presence there was and help get things back up and running. For the documentation you may thank Smart Loki, Quentin Quire, Jo Harville, Matt Murdock, Ianto Jones, Rick Jones, Integra, Scary Alucard, Jason Todd, Slightly More Attractive Loki, Kurama, Pidge Gunderson, Sam Winchester, Tim Drake, and Ezekiel.

Thank you.

A fiery duck seems somewhat... Self-contradictory. They should cancel each other out, shouldn't they? Fire and water? Happens to me every time it rains

[Riza, Ed, and Winry]

His name is Maes. You can keep the sentiment to yourselves. It's apparently called a Magby.

I should invest in more ammunition.

[Roy Mustang, Edward Elric, Winry Rockbell]
I'm glad the three of you are alright. I'm going to be helping with clean up and I think it would be good if all of us offered, if you already haven't.

Mr Elric, I managed to steal an interesting sword off of a pirate if you're interested in it.

I suppose I should have anticipated some formal event.

[Roy Mustang]
Sir, are you planning to attend?

No weapons off the boat again. This is fantastic.

Looks like I need to learn a new weapon so I can properly defend myself at these ports.

So when we're not at dock, what do people do for entertainment around here?

This is coming from someone who hasn't taken leave in the last seven years.

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.

I'm not fond of boats. I believe I'll proceed with that motion sickness shot.

[Roy Mustang]
Sir, what do you make of this?
