So as you saw on CNN, there's a situation in Paraguay. It does resemble the attack on the Fort Neill base in the last 90's. The Bureau is looking into official channels to speak with anyone on the base or anyone with any knowledge of the base. This is a very precarious situation due to an international military being involved. Please do not attempt something on your own; you could jeopardize what we're trying to do.

The Bureau will keep you as updated as we can.

We'll reach out when there is a need for assistance.

Can you guys be on call in case we need backup at the Bureau?

We don't know how many people might end up needing to go. We don't know if we're going to be attacked again, but I'd like to make sure we have people on our side. Those of you with bigger powers — looking at you Danvers — may end up stationed at exits just in case it gets by everyone else. If you've got suggestions for others, let me know.
We're working on negotiations to get down to Paraguay to see if we can get inside that building, take a look at the fresh scene and what it looks like. I'm not going to lie, if it's anything like the aftermath we found here, it's going to be a bloody mess. If your stomach's a little on the light side, let me know. Do not compromise this by whining. I will not hesitate to fire you if that happens.

Anyone with computer experience, I'd like to get you all working on grabbing every image, video, and audio leak we can find. More than that, I want to look into other potential military bases getting hit with strange and sudden shut downs. I want all of them, even if they've been decommissioned in a property ceremony.
I'm probably going to need a raincheck on that vacation.

The fine folks at Fort Neil Resetttlement Bureau still need your help.

As you know we’ve had quite a few disappearances lately, friends and loved ones that will be missed. It’s left some holes that need to be filled in our schedule. I know standing around as a guard isn’t glamorous. You may feel like your time and experience could be better used somewhere else. But as a guard, you’re the first line of defense for our community, and the first friendly face for new arrivals. The job is important and the pay is pretty good, too.

We provide training and work with whatever circumstances the portal throws our way. Please consider pitching in.

Thank you.

With the end of summer coming soon, Franklin's already started his annual chorus of "Why do I have to go to school this year?" and I'm being forced to employ the parental "Because I said so" more and more every day. Anyone else having this problem?

Jul. 22nd, 2018


Seems some of you have lost family members. Some of them take care of your children or wards. We're looking for temporarily child care at the Bureau until the EPS starts up again. Anyone got any ideas for someone to take the position?
We're finding ourselves with some childcare needs. I know that you're out for the summer and handling your survival training, but I wondered if we could work out some sort of deal between us for those who need child care during summer, school breaks, and maybe some weekends for those who work weekends.


Hey, so ... sorry for being on the quiet side. Laura leaving's been rough on the kids.

Franklin and Val showed up through the portal today.

I'm going to be volunteering at the shelter Sunday from 4-8, and was wondering if you'd like to join me.

You know, if you all are wondering what uses there could be for eggs and toilet paper that you don't plan on using for yourself, you can try reaching out to the homeless instead??

[Sue Storm & Wanda Maximoff]
Do me a solid? Don't vanish.

I need someone to call me on my shit, and Jess seems intent to pop in and out of this dimension.

[Sherlock Holmes]
How do you find things going, without your sponsor I mean.

The arrivals and disappearances, they're really starting to harp on at me.

Jul. 3rd, 2018


Are you planning on attending any of the numerous feeding frenzies?

Or have plans this weekend?

Is it bad to be banned from Starbucks? Like not even for breaking anything.

Hey, sis, have you seen a credit card application anywhere?

Jun. 10th, 2018


Today I learned spider blood is pale blue.


Can I just say that I'm super glad that you guys didn't go for the Facebook format with the network?

Also, hi. I'm Peter. Ben gave me the insider's scoop on everything. Well, not everything, but probably about 25% of everything. I'm pretty sure I retained about 50% of that 25%, and there's about 15% that I'm currently in denial about on top of that. Sooo, for the 10.6% that I'm good with, I think I get the idea. I had my freak out. Totally understand that I'm the 3rd Peter Parker here.

Which, hey, fellow Peters. Are we just doing numbers? Chronologically? By height? Follow the Ed, Edd, and Eddy format? Does that even exist here? Too many questions? ...not enough questions?


We've gotten three bogeys on our portal scanner, and they are not in town. Ones in Queens, another in Kearney, Nebraska, and the other is in Siberia. This is an all hands on deck situation, as we're ridiculously understaffed. Our Googler is on the internet, looking for social media related to it. So far, it's just portals. We have no idea what's coming.

I need civilians who are willing to fight whatever comes out of there and take orders.

Oh, kiss my entire ass, Tumbleweed.

Come and get me so I don't wander into traffic/a bar.

[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.

I'm having a BBQ.

There's a grill out the back and some lawn furniture, so screw it. Burgers and steaks.

You wanna come, bring some grub and come on over.

You wanna invite anyone from school over?

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who helped during these last few weeks while the Resettlement Bureau was getting on its feet. The primary goal of the organization is simple: greet new arrivals and set them up with what they'll need to get on their feet here. That means paperwork, helping them acclimate to Tumbleweed and Earth, finding their housing. The secondary goal is to study the portal, to see if there is a way we can figure out its agenda, where it came from, how to stop certain creatures from coming through or at the least, being prepared when they do.

These are now paid positions. If you were volunteering before, just come see me if you want to transition to paid.

You can see how outlook and agenda here.

Our open positions are as follows, and yes, they do come with health benefits. [OOC NOTE: If you are on here in a position, you'll need to comment here to get the ball ICly rolling, please!]

Tiny, I wanted to thank you for establishing the food bank. I'd like to work directly with you to help those who first arrive who won't have a paycheck for a week or so. The Resettlement Bureau can help, but you've already got that in place and it would help foster relations with others. Do you have plans to make it an actual charity?

Tony (and Tiny), any ideas on a time frame for the reactor?

Apr. 24th, 2018


How are you settling back in here?

Apr. 16th, 2018


[ooc: forward an hour or two because I have to go out soon]

Weevils in the streets a few blocks from Fort Neill. Watch out for humanoids in dark blue boiler suits, bald, flattened wrinkled faces with very sharp teeth. They're stronger and faster than humans and can take a few bullets but they can also be taken down with tasers and a spray we formulated back home which I have a few cans of. They usually live in sewers and aren't actively aggressive unless disturbed, but they're not suited for bright light and will be disoriented and lashing out. If we can round them up or restrain them we can hold them until we find somewhere they won't bother anyone.

And if one cuts or bites you, you will need a course of antibiotics.

Apr. 11th, 2018


Is anyone else a little concerned that the people in town don't seem to have noticed all the changes, or the fact that we were gone for three months?

[Carol Danvers, Jessica Drew, Singularity]
Are you guys settling back in okay?

Apr. 8th, 2018


post-dated to Monday, April 9th at 9am.

We're back in Tumbleweed, but as some of you may have figured out, the town is completely different than it was the last time we were here. There's an airport now, which my car navigation system pointed out, and it's on the opposite side of town from Fort Neill.

Of course, that's not the most startling or disturbing difference. Fort Neill is a graveyard, and I mean that in the kindest sense of the world. It was locked up when I got there. Got my way in to find a dusty military facility that has not been used in quite some time, and it looks like it didn't happen on purpose.

The military is dead, and I don't mean they cleared out. I mean there is an entire facility full of the skeletal remains of whoever was in there when something happened. That something appears to have been some sort of [...] feeding, possible animal attack. There are definite teeth marks on these bones, and the state of decomposure... it's not new. At least a decade, maybe more so it's not as horrendous as it could be to see.

I have not turned the power on; I don't want to disturb the bodies more than I already have, but I'd like for anyone interested in helping to come down to the facility to move these bodies — telekinesis, magic, or just standard issue gloves — so that we don't taint the bodies with our DNA. We'll have to keep the power off until that happens, and then there should be video monitoring we can check to see what happened, check databases and logs to see if there's any evidence of what might have happened here.

I'm leaving this open so we can discuss what to do. After scrounging around the base, I haven't seen any paperwork or IDs for those of you who arrived on the cruise so that's something we should work on immediately to get people in the system so they can work, get IDs, and whatever else they need. We'll need people who can make IDs and people who can get into the necessary systems for government agencies to make sure the back-end is taken care of in anyone wants to cross state or country lines.

And a warning to some of you who worked at the military before: yes, we knew some of these people if the names on the uniforms check out.

Apr. 2nd, 2018


I'm pleased these flowers are meant to last. They're a constant reminder of home and my life back there, even if I already have some physical reminders of Amestris. At least these I can keep in my room at nightunlike the Colonel. Back home I would have insisted they were useless, but these are certainly far from it.

Colonel, you don't suppose I've gone a little overboard with the amount of flowers in the suite? This is nothing compared to that time you bought a car full of flowers. I promise not to make you a flower crown.

[All Avengers, Academy students, Wakandans, general friends]
Everyone okay? I'm in medical with Misty and Steve but I can get away if anyone needs. (They'll be fine, I am fine.)

Insert preferred vacation destination, comment about alternative afterlife expectations, and complaints about my luggage gone missing.

Priorities first: Where can I get a burger? And then a dossier. I'll try not to get ketchup on it.

but you wanna go to this shindig ball together? couple wise. on a date?

Okay fellow adventurers. I found a bean. I'm not disclosing where I found it, because it's a trauma I'm not reliving -don't ask Jess, not telling- but I'm gonna fire this baby up.

Who wants to come with? Even with all this talk of potential danger, I'm going a little stir crazy from the fairy land overload.

My fingers are crossed for somewhere dangerous with dinosaurs. I really wanna punch another dino.

Mar. 8th, 2018


It's International Women's Day. Does that count out here? Don't ask me how I remember. Marlo made sure I did.

So go respect the hell out of a woman.

Mar. 7th, 2018


Judging by the alarmist attitudes of people apparently in the know, this isn't a Sherwood Forest or Camelot in the vein of Mel Brooks or Monty Python. Who do we speak to about making that happen?

And I hope we can all agree to the necessity of coming up with a swear jar equivalent or some other punitive measure for anyone who's caught singing that "Let It Go" song from Frozen. I'm guessing corporal punishment is a bit much.

Mar. 8th, 2018


Camelot looks... strangely familiar.

Mar. 5th, 2018


[Private to Susan Storm-Richards]
You know, Franklin would be all over this.

And Val would probably take over Camelot.

Man, I miss those two.

I definitely remember already doing the quarantine thing, but I know for a fact that we were not on a ship before. What the hell did I miss?

Feb. 26th, 2018


For those of you with inquiring minds, the room service in the brig leaves much to be desired. Also, pack a toothbrush.

Feb. 22nd, 2018


A walk in the sunlight in Middle Earth.

That's something I never imagined would come about.

Feb. 21st, 2018


Another space portal. Let's not do that again.

Sentient nursebots, huh? I know what it looks like, but this one's not on me. Seriously, though. Someone has dramatically upped their LMD game. What are we talking, here? Thing 1 and Thing 2 are not particularly forthcoming. Programming could use some work.

So tell me, who else is on the guest list for this involuntary pleasure cruise? And is there scotch?

Feb. 20th, 2018


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?

Feb. 11th, 2018


I think what we all need to remember here is that at no point should anyone but on any rings, no matter how interesting they may look.

That goes triple for you, Johnny.

Feb. 7th, 2018


[Remy LeBeau]
Do you want to have lunch with me today?

Jan. 28th, 2018


I'm Colonel James Rhodes and I spent most of the last night getting caught up on the situation. If there's anything I can do to assist with reinforcing security protocols, emergency contingencies, and the like, I'll be happy to assist.

Amadeus Cho, I'm your new suitemate.


Well, at least we know now that the ship's defenses work.

I know that a lot of people have been comparing this cruise to the one some of you were on last year. Is there a rundown of events from that cruise?

How's your hand doing?

Jan. 17th, 2018


[Johnny Storm]
If Namor is there, I'm staying on the ship - for the record.
[Carol Danvers]
So inquiring minds want to know - have you found the ship's best burgers yet?


The Mixology class isn't bad. There were a couple of drinks I didn't know and the technique was slightly different than I'm used to. I'll probably keep going to it to see how much new there is to pick up. More identifying ingredients and playing with flavour profiles would be good.

I checked where they have yoga too. That room might be big enough for self defense training. Not proper fights and not many at a time, but I think it could work.

Jan. 15th, 2018


[Susan and Johnny Storm, Doctor (12), plus Ororo Munroe]
Have any of you thought about where you would be best placed in an emergency? It looks as though there's already at least one person with shields stationed at the school with the children - two with Rogue there as well. Since there are only so many of us with that ability it makes sense to make sure we're in the places with the highest need. Possibly somewhere that's likely to have heavy fighting.

Jan. 9th, 2018


Heads up to any flying, swimming, or people with amazing eyesight or stuff. A few telepaths would come in handy too.

Anyone interested in a scouting party? I figure if we all kind of tag team up and keep each other in line of sight so we can check things farther out without worrying about losing the boat?
