There is a good explanation for this.

I just need to remember it.

Logan didn't come back. I will look after the gym.

So, with this new town 'boom', want to go exploring? See if there's actually some new food options around here.


It looks like the town isn't the only bigger thing here. I wandered by the college and that's definitely grown. I haven't explored how much bigger yet, because I might've gotten distracted by some flyers from the Muslim Student Association. I don't know what butterfly got stepped on in the past for this to happen, but I appreciate its sacrifice.

That whole ordeal reminded me too much of New York City. Not my actual world's New York City but the city that I was in before this one, the same one that had people from other worlds show up in it who we thought were fictional and stuff. We even had sparkly versions of vampires and Box Ghost. Every once in a while, there was some huge thing that happened and some of us superheroes rallied but most of my time spent there was going to school and living a partially normal life.

Which is the super weird thing about memory updated that the universe likes to give you. You suddenly have all these moments and they are very much real and it's all about how your life was all crazy for several weeks in a row, and meanwhile, you've actually been chillin' in another universe for the past few years.

Anyway, good show, peeps. That teamwork was awesome, I've gotten so much inspiration for my fanfics from that!

Black social history was part of my Masters so I should be able to give a good overview of what shit's gonna be like in 1953. I'd say get a snack and a cup of tea, but I guess MREs and water will have to do.

History lesson! (won't be as thorough as the doc) )

Honestly, the best thing we can do is establish ourselves outside the town. We want to be considered separate and in charge of our own affairs. Even those of us who look acceptable aren't going to know the nuances of social conventions and suspicion of anyone different in a small rural town in Texas is going to be bad, especially with resources scarce. But we probably will have some contact with them, so anyone who's worried can come find me and I'll try to help you out. If anyone else specifically studied this time period it would be great if you could speak up too.

Apart from that I'm good for patrols, helping to build things, scouting, whatever. I might be able to do up a map of where the birds are finding water in the area, but I can't promise it will be helpful for this many people.

And now that we're around for this time of year in a place with current TV, it's time to search if any place is streaming the Boston Pops for the Fourth. Wish me luck.

Eid celebration in Dallas on Saturday was freaking fantastic. Thank you to those who helped Samirah and I get back and forth, like, almost every day of this month. It's over now, which makes it bittersweet, because it always feels great to mingle with people of my own culture during all the years that I'm away from my actual family, and so I don't want it to end... But also, Ramadan during the month of June is killer because longer days and I GET SO HANGRY.

At least the universe decided to take people out of here after the whole month, so not to ruin the festivities. Would have preferred it added more instead of taking. Ugh.

Back in the world I was in before this one, I was staying in NYC, and NYC has a super diverse population that it didn't take very long to find a community of my own culture among the city even if my main support system isn't here. Tumbleweed... is no NYC. So, if anyone wouldn't teleporting me every once in a while over to Dallas or Houston to get that cultural feel again, I swear, I'll feed you.

Small towns like this are about the same no matter where you are. It's reassuring, I suppose, that it doesn't change much even in another damn universe. Feels familiar in the same way, where everyone knows everyone, and the little old ladies at church know everyone's business. Especially if you don't look like you fit in, if you're different somehow. I keep thinking I'll see But I'd been looking to get away from small town life like this. At least it's a different town. Guess I should be grateful for that.

The thing about this place I can't shake is how no one seems to notice how none of us fit in here. Something's not right about that. Wednesday would've had a hell of a time with these people.

Okay. So let me see if I got this right. We got transported to another universe via unknown means, there's no way to get back, and I'm stuck in quarantine until they let me out. And this is real. It's not a dream, or a hallucination. Someone warping with reality? A week ago, I wouldn't have thought to ask that question, but it's been a long fucking week.

I'm Shadow.

Alright, so. Good movies to show on Memorial Day? Give me your suggestions. I'm coming up with a list of as many good replacement options as possible before I go to the Mayor's office to politely contest their current choice.

Does anyone have any idea how to get a Force resistant cat to sleep at night?

I don't know what any of you with SO's might be planning for the Valentine's Day, but would anyone free be up for another ladies' night? There has to be something on this giant ship that won't be too schmoopy and coupley that we can all go to.

[Women of Cair Paravel]
I know I'm relatively new to the house and all, even with our newer arrivals, but Reyna asking about us all helping out for her wedding got me thinking. Would anyone be interested in doing a ladies' night sort of thing? Either here or going out could work. I think it could be fun.

Text Message to Magnus Chase
- One: Happy New Year. I hope you're enjoying the party.
- And if you say it'd be better with me there, I'm smacking you.
- Two: what time do I need to make sure you're up for a 10AM departure?

It's only December first and I'm ready to lock myself in my room with no TV and no internet until January.

cut for vague political referencing? )

Unrelated to anything going on in this world: there was the offer of staying at your place when we first arrived in this world. I was wondering if the offer was still open.

I don't know if it'll just make my life harder or not, but could you help me with the emancipation paperwork?

Getting to go out of town for some shopping was nice.

This? Not so much.

I know it's a thing and all, our lives being media and all, but it's still a jolt to the system to see it.

It's strange how being in a world that's almost like home makes you miss home all the more. Probably because in Mount Weather and on the island, I was just the odd one out in our little pseudo-home. But here there's news from around the world and it's not just me guessing at moon cycles and hoping that what I can manage is enough. Here, I know what's going on other places and it just makes it that much more obvious what I'm missing with my family, our traditions, and our community.

I didn't say anything on Monday because it hurt too much to be alone during a time meant for celebration with family, especially when it falls so close to a day that's hurt so many. But I'm blessed with family who let me know I'm not alone, even if the family I'm used to isn't here. So, it's the last day, but...

Eid Mubarak. Kul ‘am wa antum bi-khair.

Aug. 29th, 2016


The past months have involved living in a mountain on a post apocalyptic earth and being stranded on a deserted island and yet the weirdest thing so far for me has been sitting through a day of school and nothing out of the ordinary happening...

I'm also happy for the stables in town. It's good to have horses around that are definitely going to stay put.

In the off chance you wandered off and found something interesting in classic you fashion, are you busy? I need your help on a mission.

For the first time in my life, I am going to happily take a page from your book. We're going to have a family dinner. My treat this time.
