For the record, I have not found anything in my own samples that would explain the decaying scientifically. Unfortunately that also means there's nothing I can reverse engineer to fix it. It simply is.

Sep. 16th, 2018


Hello there! I'm Dr. Chakrabarti. While I'm relatively new here and it's a Sunday morning after a ridiculous event, I highly urge anyone that went to the ball yesterday to come in for an once over, even if you were not injured or otherwise affected by last night's events. You may be asymptomatic or may not realize something's off.

Also, it'll give me a chance to get to know everyone here and give me a baseline to work off, in case something in the future happens where you need a doctor in your life. I've been told that people are skittish about blood draws around here, so rest assured, I'll only be doing that and any tests only if you consent to them. You should be getting checked up yearly anyway, so you might as well get it done now. Added bonus: you get to talk to me and I absolutely think I'm hilarious company.

I'll be down at the Bureau's medical wing all day today, so feel free to call in ahead of time to see how long, short, or non-existent the queue is so you're not waiting around forever. And if you like waiting, bring a book! I recommend Crazy Rich Asians for a fun read. I devoured that and the rest of the books in its series within a week.

EDIT: So far it looks like that people have been affected by the fairies. Things we are seeing so far: Tinkerbellism (Approximately six inches tall), going giant, spewing out the truth, and transforming into animals (wolf, horse, and bird). Possibly a coma like sleep as well, still looking into those cases. Vomiting pearls when trying to speak. Intangibility. Decaying - Those of you suffering from this one, I highly recommend finding a large freezer and sitting in it immediately. Or anyone with ice powers that can cool you down. At the very least, put those ACs to use asap. Mutism.

If you believe you can assist with any of these things, please find the person afflicted on this post and offer your help.

EDIT 2: If there are any animal specialists available, we may have some people that might appreciate you looking them over. Also, any psychologists or therapists being on standby would be appreciated.

Lencho is starting to believe she's part-goat, it seems. She's taken up bouncing around the lab. Luckily she hasn't also developed a habit of investigating my tools by trying to eat them, but poor Bruce has been so patient with being used as a trampoline.

I see you completed your nano-armor in the end. I'm going out of town with my brother on Tuesday but I would love to see it sometime.

Aug. 4th, 2018


[Posted Early in the morning, not long after this scene takes place]

Shit, okay, so Tony had a memory upgrade and with it a horrible injury. Stab wound by a large blade, piercing all the way through his abdomen, coming out the other side. Internal organs are likely to be damaged. Tony's got his nanotech to close the wound and stop the bleeding, but he needs immediate medical attention. We don't want to take him to a local hospital, because how the hell are we going to explain this?

This is a real emergency, we need immediate help. I'm freaking out here

Greetings from Zimbabwe. )

Jul. 16th, 2018


I've got Bohemian Rhapsody stuck in my head. Over and over. "I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me! He's just a poor boy from a poor family." And then random parts from the operatic section. And I've listened to the song ten times in a row now, and it won't get UNSTUCK.


Or conversely, tell me what's stuck in your head?

Third week in. How do you think it's coming along? Do we need more supplies? I can order them or go pick them up, whichever.

Jul. 11th, 2018


Wakanda's place of residence has security measures. Please, for your safety, avoid including it in your pranks.

The Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority has been having some difficulty enforcing their anti-poaching measures, due to a particularly terrible group of poachers. The Zambezi Elephant is in danger, as a result.

Would any of you care to join me to find a solution? This one will be a little more...active than the last project we were on. Margo, I included you because you mentioned you were interested in doing something more with your summer.


I go away for a few days, and when I get back is Tumbleweed crawling with tourists. Thank you, Michael, for delivering my coffee and bagel, otherwise I'd be standing in line for half an hour for my order.

[Private to Natasha Romanoff (MCU)]
Seriously, what made you think it was a good idea to go after Tony's place like that, knowing how shaky the relationship is between Tony, Steve and Bucky?

[Private to Tony Stark, Amadeus Cho, Shuri, and Betty Ross]
Betty and I were working on a machine that I'd hoped would help suppress the Hulk, but when something went wrong I came to the realization that I'm too traumatized to work directly on this sort of project. I'm worried that something really horrible will happen and cause a repeat of my accident (or worse), but instead of that being good and keeping me on my toes so it won't happen again, it's stressing me out and causing high levels of anxiety, which you know isn't good for me.

I wonder if you guys would be interested in helping? Betty has been working with me, so she has all the information you need, including a flash drive with data collected up to the moment of the accident that turned me into a monster. Shuri, I know we haven't communicated at all in Tumbleweed, but I have the memory of you helping with Vision when we were up against Thanos, and I trust your skill.

I can be around to answer questions, or if you need me to run preliminary tests, but I need to be hands off.

OK, so, now portkeys or whatever are real and we're in Texas which definitely was not one of our honeymoon destination options. This is fine. Being in quarantine is totally fine and we definitely aren't freaking out. I'm sure Amy totally accounted for "becoming a TV show" in her disaster scenarios. Cool, cool, cool.

Are we going to meet Walker, Texas Ranger? See the Friday Night Lights? OOO! Is everything actually bigger in Texas? But if everything's bigger, is everything the same amount of embiggened? How would you know unless you had something from outside of Texas for scale? Will I be like King Kong when I go home? Why do people outside keep talking about "shrank wool eyes"? "Tranquil eyes"?

Sierra Leone is beautiful, but when you move out of the big city centres with their skyscrapers and hotels it becomes quite confronting. We do not have this kind of poverty in Wakanda. There is a stark contrast in the ways that different people live. But the people we have been working with are very welcoming, even as busy as we've been. The only thing there's always time for is the World Cup, where most people are split between supporting Senegal and Nigeria. It seems like we are never more than a sentence away from launching into another in-depth discussion about the relative strengths and weaknesses of each team. I admit I have learned far more about football than I have about water filtering.

A young rhinoceros will very quickly start to outgrow his best Mareep friend. It's starting to get quite funny watching them play together. Luckily Lencho is very patient and doesn't get upset easily on the occasion he accidentally knocks her over.

Jun. 4th, 2018


I finally finished the wings. All that's left to do is attach them and Festus and I should be good to go.

So he doesn't really have any add ons that keep him invisible or at least not visible to people who'd notice. I didn't want to overload him. So if someone wants to help me with a magical solution or whatever, I guess this is me asking. Pointless to have a flying metal dragon if you can't actually fly on him.

May. 30th, 2018


It seems like only a few weeks ago I was barely sixteen, but at the same time it's been two years since then. It is extremely strange. But the important point is that I'm now 18 and no longer require a guardian, though I suppose I'll continue to put up with him regardless.

[Friends and Colleagues* of Both Tony Starks]
In honor of Tony Stark the Younger somehow managing to reach the age of 21, you are invited to come and take advantage of free food and drink at my place in honor of his achievement, Saturday, June 2 at 6 PM.

Yes, I suppose it's also my birthday too, but I just celebrated it a few months ago. A hasty exit will be given to anyone who reminds me of the fact that Tiny is less than half of my age.

[Tony Stark (904913)]
Don't forget, birthday grill out on Tuesday. Bring whomever you want.

It's kind of creepy how the portal seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. Kind of Big Brother is watching-ish.

I had a gift come through from the portal today. It's a Hand of Glory. When it's lit, it opens a door. Any door I want it to. Most likely including whatever Otherside Ty is stuck on.

I think this is it.

I think I found my solution to my ghost friend problem. I received something called the Hand of Glory, it opens doors. It should be powerful enough for me to pull Tyler through, especially since somehow he's just right there. Alucard, would you take a look?

Regina, Pixie, is there any chance you'd both be willing to be there just in case? The magic should come from the Hand itself, but I don't know what the rules are in this world and I'm concerned I might need backup magic to fall back on. It's not guaranteed, but I'd feel better with an Emergency Plan B.

Have you ever heard of a Hand of Glory?


The best/worst thing about falling asleep in the Forge basically all the time is that when you start getting weird notifications about coming to pick things up and you're trying to get extra sleep before school (because it's a painful and exhausting experience [...] except for French, which is kind of okay, I guess) is that Festus sort of uses his tail to knock your cot over. Then you're awake. Usually this is annoying, but today? TODAY?

I'm going to need a collection of people who'd like to help me with something that's come through. Um. I got the blueprints for the Argo II. I guess rebuilding won't be the worst thing I've ever done. When I got here, all I had was Festus' head, so we know that I'm stubborn. Uh. If you don't have building experience and just think it sounds cool, though? Please don't. Unless you want to do like food runs or something. This is my boat and I need it to be up to 'an entire cabin of the children of Hephaestus built it while Annabeth ordered everyone around' standards. So. Flying Greek Trireme. Who's with me?

We've been having a strange bout of weather as of late, but I hope this evening stays relatively free of any storms.

If anyone wishes to drop by the backyard this evening, I will be having a braai. I am thinking sosaties and springbok loin, but am willing to take requests.

You have been very quiet since that night as of late.

I came into a bit of money, courtesy of the portal. The school year is over next month and I was hoping to use this money to take some time away from Tumbleweed with you, this summer. We can go anywhere you like, see or do whatever you want. What do you think?

May. 17th, 2018


So. I'm new here. Seem to have misplaced a team. Anybody seen 'em? They're loud. Banter inappropriately during life or death situations. Most recently seen fighting a lot of robots.

It's absolutely vital that I find them, because I'm wrecked, and I kind of need a babysitter.

Little help guys?

Okay. Does anyone have fire abilities that they suddenly just got or know someone that does? I've been trying to figure out where my powers went and I haven't seen anything or heard anything. Additionally, if you do have the ability to control fire, put your hand on the nearest mechanical thing. If tou can tell how things work just by touching it, that’s mine. Or try building something. It should be easy.


Filter: Team Wakanda
I am in need of some guidance. I have seemed to develop some sort of fire-starting abilities and I lit my entire bedsheets on fire.

I know there's lots of really important things going on right now but



[Private to the Wakandans and Company]
It has occurred to me that I was perhaps rude. I am not used to diplomatic situations and I believe that my feelings regarding others in our group have not made me the best at interacting with the people in my surroundings. I believe an apology is in order. I am sorry that I have allowed the behavior of others to influence my own behavior toward people who have nothing to do with what has occurred.

[...] I hope my behavior didn't sour the evening. I am not sure how to make up for it if it did, however. I have never had to make up for my behavior. Mostly because I have never been sorry about it. I don't even know I am not very good at conversations with other people. Growing up in the Fairy Realm did not offer itself to much empathy or sensitivity or diplomacy. I haven't really attempted to become better at it since my arrival. I guess It's something I need to work on. And I will. Well, at least Ronan will get the parts that are not meant for everyone

I know Queen Margo and my father are looking forward to an alliance. I don't want my behavior to negatively affect their efforts even if I don't actually. If you would still like to share information moving forward, I will do what I can [...] and I would like to learn more about your culture and whatever else you would like to share. Fillory has only been my home for a short while, so I may not have the information you would like, but I could give you information on the fairies. I know more about them than anyone in our party given I was raised by them. In the hopes that you will be better able to protect yourself against them should they come here the same way that we did. Don't tell Eliot I called him my father. In fact, don't tell him about this. I don't really want to make it seem like I'm looking for validation

I think I've now stabilised all prosthetics that were causing problems, but please let me know if anyone is still having trouble. Once we get moving again I should be able to start restoring full functionality.

Do we have a progress report on the other engineering projects?

Mar. 23rd, 2018



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.

I apologize for leaving our breakfast so abruptly. Someone from home had arrived and I needed to go see her. But I enjoyed our brief time together and hope that you will save me a dance at the next ball, should there be one.
