Right! I am going to break this so quick. But it understands me, which is quite lovely!

Tonks is me. I'm new! Old? New-old.

I have bought a small piece of land not far from the Burrow for any mechanic work I was advertising. I figured, in order to remain safe, my business, especially if it reaches out to those of us who are native to this world, ought to be in another place.

It isn't too much. Just a very small plot, enough for a garage. I was wondering if any of you would like to assist me into getting something built and running. While it is possible for me to do this all on my own, I wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to do something together with those I consider my family!

Who all have we got left wanting to continue on with this? And is there anyone else we should go about inviting?

Ya doing any better? And when are we resuming our wine days cause I'm in need of them.

Anyone teach sword fighting around here? And who is good with werewolf lore?

Liv, I have something important to ask you that I've been putting off since I got here.

What's the last thing you remember about home?

Apparently, I am no longer decaying. The freezer was suddenly far too cold for me, and after getting a clean bill of health, I am out of here.

Still not quite as bad as recovering from being shot in the head.

Town has gone completely bonkers again. No one seems to think that the Paraguay happened. I tried to mention it at one of my meetings today, and they corrected me. "You mean the chemical spill?"

This is exhausting.

I will end whatever is behind the portal fuckery. Don't ever turn me into something I fucking hate. You will not enjoy the day I catch up with you.

Has anyone tried to pull a Popeye yet? I'm operating under the assumption it'll work but I wonder if it has to be canned or if you could get by with one of those freezer bags and if it'd have the same effect.

Probably has to be canned. Comedic effect and all.

Heard through the grapevine you're affected. You doing alright, kid?

Is anyone possibly interested in a Looney Tunes marathon because of all this?

WHO: Snow White

WHERE: Wolf Manor
WHAT: Snow wakes up to find herself very different.

How does America manage to have thousands of television channels and not a single item worth watching? Just how does a vampire entertain himself as the night draws on with nothing to hunt?

I would very much appreciate you all checking in. Unfortunately, Ginny is no longer with us in this world, and I'd like to know if anyone else is missing too.

So, a trickster god told me that I should get in touch with you. And normally that's a hard pass for me, but my brother seems to think the world of that trickster god. I hear you need a nanny? I can do a solid Mrs. Doubtfire impression, but my resume didn't come through the portal.

My sister has disappeared. Rose Red, for those who knew her or were beginning to know her. I wish that I could say it gets easier, but it honestly gets more exhausting. It stops feeling like a joyous occasion when she comes back. I'll miss her, but perhaps she is better off in our world.

However, it leaves me in a bit of a bind. I have four shapeshifting children and one zephyr child, and I need child care during the daytime. I begin my day at 9am, but it can often go on beyond normal 9-5 on weekdays. I often have events that I must attend, and while I could chose someone from the town, I'd rather not expose them to the antics of my children which could and likely will include shapeshifting, flying, and my daughter who can control the North Wind.

Is there anyone out there who is looking for a summer position? I would pay generously, and of course would stock the kitchen with all sorts of goodies.

Jul. 9th, 2018


I know you're at work, and I hate to bother you, but Rose has disappeared. We were having a conversation and —

You'd think I'd be used to it. It's happened several times already.

Fuck all of this.


[Parents of Young Kids Group*]
I'm gonna be opening up my house for a playdate this Friday from eleven to two. We got an expansive backyard with different climbing things and a lil area that's perfect for real little ones.

And then inside has areas for the kids to play as well and all of us to gather if'n its hotter'n Hades again.

I can grill burgers and hot dogs and then if'n anyone coming over could just bring some side dishes that'd be real grand. Just let me know who all is coming so I can get the right amount of food for the grill. Or if'n ya want something else grilled let me know that too.

[*whoever has been signing up for that plus Erik Lehnsherr. I got the okay from Allie to schedule this!]

You ought to know that Zelda and I are no longer dating. However, the breakup went very amiably, and we remain friends.

Would you like to come over tomorrow evening with Bill for dinner? I've gotten fairly decent at manning a grill and can promise something edible.

City Hall will be closed on Wednesday, won't it?

I have pain in the head from this talk of dimensions and space, and if it is true, the pain may also be motion sickness from the time travel. Someone will have to bring me medicine.

Things I'm reminded of: I fucking hate fairies sometimes. Especially when they're manipulating little shits and cause you to get lost in the fucking woods because you got distracted by some damn magical lights.

I'm half tempted to have Clara torch the place, but even I know better than to make enemies with the fae.


[Filtered to parents/guardians of young children]

Okay. I know I talked about forming a parents group, and now that I've had some time, I'm actually able to put together a clear plan for it. With school finishing up for the summer, now's the perfect time to at least start getting together so that we can start planning out activities for the summer.

I'm thinking that we could have meetings once or twice a week during the summer, maybe one where we meet up at someone's house, and then another one where maybe we go out and do an activity together as a group. During the school year, maybe cut it down to every other Saturday, depending on what works best for the group. As life happens, you don't have to come to every single get together, but whatever you can do is fine. This is for the benefit of both adults and children. The children have kids their own age to interact with, and the adults can start forming a support group, especially since there are a few of us with infants.

I'm willing to offer up our house as a meeting location, but we could probably rotate between different houses, that way one person isn't constantly hosting meetings. If you don't have the space for it, that's perfectly fine.

I've made a form for people to fill out, that way I can get a head count of who to expect, and we can start getting closer to making this an actual thing.

I intended to inform everyone sooner but with the end of term and the Senior Class trip, once again, this got away from me. Still, we have time.

James, Lily Luna and I will be taking a family trip with Credence, Luna and Helena to Florida next month. I was gifted a trip from the portal back during the winter holidays and we are just now able to take advantage of it. Should anyone like to also venture to the Sunshine State, and the Walt Disney resorts, while we are in attendance, we would be more than glad to spend some time with you during our trip. We will be there from July 8th to the 14th. I've attached our itinerary [here].

Let us know.

As for the current trip I am chaperoning, the 5 mile hike in Yellowstone was, well, intense.
I do not know if you will want to go, or will be able to with the shop having just open, but if you cannot, I would still like to take Fred with us. If that is alright. I think Helena would have a more enjoyable time with someone her age and I do not want him to feel excluded.

Now that the building has been obtained and permits secured, Tina and I are very excited to announce that the Center for the Performing & Creative Arts will be open for registration and tours starting on the 23rd of July. If anyone is interested in applying for an instructive position, please email your resume to careers@cpca.com, We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

ooc: pretend that’s the website! I’ll be adding details regarding schedules/pricing for courses as they come so if your character wants to teach (anything at all!), let me know at The Arts Center’s Dropbox.

First I've seen of the unusual things that happen. It isn't too different from home, but the invasions are a bit different. Last bug infestation we had was an over-sized pain in the ass of a roach. Then again, arachnoids and bugs aren't really the same thing.

The people in these places still seem to forget what happens or has this never happened spread out like this?

The kids turn seven on Wednesday so we are going to have a little party on Saturday. Come over. We'll have cake.

[Filtered to parents/guardians of young children]

I've noticed that there's quite a few of us with young kids in the infant to preteen range. I know that some of us have been here for awhile, but some, like my family, haven't been here very long, and as a result, don't really have much in terms of friends for our children, or a support group of other parents.

Has anyone ever talked of maybe forming a parents and kids group? Like, the parents hang out and talk about our lives or whatever, while the kids all play together? We meet up at maybe different houses or go on outings together, like to museums and the zoo, have cookouts, things like that. Maybe parents who've been around for awhile can give tips to other Displaced parents, and our kids have a group of friends that are in similar situations to theirs.

If other parents wanted to, I certainly wouldn't object to forming a group like this. It'd be nice to have a support group of other parents and it would be nice for my kids to have some friends around their age who are also in the same situation that they are.

I found a place outside of town for skydiving lessons. It's my new goal. I'll have to work around things a bit, but I'll figure it out.

May. 26th, 2018


Cool, right?

You know what is cooler?

Experiencing it for yourself.

You've seen the movies. You've read the books. Why not give it a try for yourself? Don't forget that tomorrow, May 27th, we're having our open house at the Pit. We'll be offering free lessons for Wizards and Muggle alike. All are welcome. And if we have enough people, we'll get a pick up game going. Or if you can't make it to our open house, we will be opening officially for lessons on Tuesday, May 29th, and we want you there.

I hope to see many of you tomorrow.

Now, I need an idea of who all is coming on Monday so Snow and I can make sure we've got enough for everyone. I've seen confirmation from some of you already but if you could go ahead and let me know now if you've not confirmed with Snow?

Rocket, let the guardians know they are invited as well.

Do you have plans for the holiday on Monday?

Who else is watching the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday?


So. [...] This still feels weird. It hasn't worn off, though, so that's something. Also it's really hot here. Like I thought I was exaggerating when I was alive for a week, but no. It's definitely still really hot.

Uh. Thanks for the energy usage and stuff, Pixie. Unless something super crazy happens and I revert back to being a ghost, though, I probably don't need it anymore. So what's a non-gross food that I should try? I mean, I had a week of food things, but I definitely didn't try everything. I covered things like pizza and sandwiches and whatever they served at school.

May. 24th, 2018


I got a call early this morning saying that I got something at the portal.

I'd like to introduce you all to Clarathea. But you can call her Clara.

She's a former dragon turned raven, who occasionally breathes fire. Currently, I'm trying to get her and Mimi acquainted, but Mimi's doing that thing that she does where she likes to be a little shit and see how much she can antagonize her, so she's in Pokeball timeout.

We've been arguing over what trees to plant in Nesbit Park for two hours. I haven't, because they're fucking trees, but I'm ready for this meeting to be over.

So there's a tradition for Memorial Day to do a great big barbecue. I was thinking I could host one for all of us on May 28th around noon. Bring the kids. We have a pool, a big swing set, lots of outdoor seating.

May. 9th, 2018


I've been a bit of a hermit since I've gotten here. Or really, I blame settling into a new place.

Anyway, I am in desperate need of some new friends, since I can't just hang around my sister, her kids, and her boyfriend all the time, as great as they are.

What's a good place to get a couple of drinks around here? Because what says new friends like getting drunk together? Or not getting drunk, whatever anyone's up to.

I have questions about the space robots. You know the ones? From the Star Wars? Or I think they are from the Star Wars. I suppose it's possible this little guy is from something else. Space robots are a common thing, I've gathered.

Is it normal for a space robot to be a thief and a squatter? I've found one hanging around the shed down at the Pit and he appears to be a little thief. I don't know how he'd be able to drag this much stuff in here on his own. Though, I suppose the little white and blue robot in the movie was capable of a lot, too. So maybe I should give this one some more credit.

Is anyone missing any paintings? They certainly aren't his. Unless he's a painter, too. Do space robots paint?

I think I'm going to invite him inside.

I found a job. I'll be working as a ranch hand. Little bit different from working on the Farm back home, but it'll be good to be around animals again. Though not having them talk back to me will be a bit strange.

Apr. 17th, 2018


Who is available for camping, is willing to do an intense amount of charm work, and would like to see some dinosaurs?

Luna, would you like to see something very similar to how we setup and operate a dragon reservation?

Stephen, how've you been?

I'm going to be needing to go away for a couple of days. I'm hoping no more than three. I'm still working out the details but I wanted you to know what was going on.

Apr. 12th, 2018


The farm came with my hens and vegetable garden. It's not exactly enough to feed everyone, but if you need a little help over the next few weeks, I can at least promise some fresh eggs. Maybe some fresh vegetables, too, if they grow well enough.


When were the elections again to appoint council members? I must have missed it.

[Natasha Romanoff]

What's your deal?


If you live in Council 9, it appears that I am your new (old) council member. If you have concerns for the area, please don't hesitate to ask.

I told you that I'd be sneaky. This one is my personal favorite.Cut for picture )

We need to find some time for just the two of us.
Rose, this is Tonks. Tonks, this is my sister Rose.

I think the pair of you will get on wonderfully.

Apr. 4th, 2018


This is so much fun!

Except I got this creepy crawly little Crabrawler, if anyone wants it. I traded my other already and got the one I want to keep.


Anyone want to be my new friend and come exploring with me? I plan on going to all four islands. Not really familiar with Pokemon, but some of them are cute. Might catch some, might not. Haven't made up my mind yet.

Mar. 24th, 2018


Well, if I'm going to be stuck on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean that's not going anywhere currently, I might as well make myself useful.

My name is Rose Red. Let me know if there's anything that I can do. Even if it's just helping with food rationing or something.

Mar. 19th, 2018


I'm putting this out there. The very first Saturday after we're back in Tumbleweed? Whether that be next week or three months from now?

I'm going to destroy Emmeline Vance at skeeball.

You can come watch if you want. We'll be at Pizza Planet.

I want to have a project in mind for when we get home. What do you think? Maybe a headboard? One of those bread cabinets? A shoe rack?


Clarke's gone.

Why are people leaving?

Mar. 16th, 2018


WHO: All of Displaced
WHEN: Saturday, March 17th, starting at 7pm and going well into the night.
WHERE: Explorer Lounge, Atrium, the casino across the lounge, wherever the party spills over to
