I need a headcount on who is still cursed and who isn't. Especially you, Fort Neill.

Sep. 23rd, 2018


[Friends & Acquaintances*]
So, I'm in a little bit of a bind. Peggy moved out and today so did Jarvis. I'm still only six inches tall right now so I can't really get around by myself just yet. Anyone got a spare shoebox I can sleep in? Promise I don't take up much space. It's completely temporary, people's curses are lifting every day. I'll promise to be out of your hair as soon as I'm back to my normal height.

*A super broad filter, except it does not include Peggy, Jarvis or Bucky (PH). Why? Bucky (PH) is out of town and Steve isn't entirely sure where Peggy moved out, but he's trying to avoid making anyone feel guilty or awkward. But he's also a total idiot and might be wrong.

[Peggy Carter]
Jarvis moved out with Howard. Howard has extended an invitation for me to stay with him while I'm unable to open doors. I don't like the idea of you moving out. It doesn't sit right with me. You invited me to stay with you when I got here, and I'm grateful for it.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, the place is yours. It should be yours, if you want it. I'll let you know when I can report back to the base. No change yet.

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 Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Centre in Indonesia has heard of our efforts in Zimbabwe and has requested our help in assisting them in taking down an illegal exotic animal auction that will be taking place in the Philippines.

These animals are being brought in from Java, Sumatra, Borneo and the islands in the Eastern part of the Indonesian archipelago, especially Papua. They'll be sold off and funneled into Taiwan, Japan, China, and the rest of the world.

I know we just got back, but this auction isn't until early September. So I'm taking the next two weeks for myself and Shuri to go on a trip and after that time, I intend to head to Indonesia. If you would like to join me at that time, I welcome it.

I have found us the following flights
UA 4185 - MAF - IAH - DEP 1405 / ARR 1538
UA 46 - IAH - FRA - DEP 1815 / ARR 1015
LH 572 - FRA - JNB - DEP 2005 / ARR0830
SA 22 - JNB - HRE - DEP 0930 / ARR 1215

We will leave Tuesday at 1 pm, arrive late morning in Harare where we can acquire visas. From Harare to the Preserve is a 5 hour ride for which we shall acquire a car. Falke and Ms. Hanson, should you not have valid passports, please arrange such with the Resettlement Bureau immediately, as well as any medical paperwork which may be required for your wings. Anything that cannot go on the flight can be brought in by teleporter, but we will be appearing for all intents and purposes as a technical, philanthropic mission.

Our return travel is largely similar but through Heathrow instead. We should be back August 5th unless that date needs to change.

Temperatures this time of year are highs in the mid-20s, lows in the mid teens with little expected rainfall.

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.

You are all invited to join us at our home for a day of celebration and sparring to celebrate Okoye's birth this Monday. Festivities will begin in the afternoon, there will be no formal schedule of events so feel free to come and go as you please.

It has been some time since we've spoken. How are you doing?

I know we're all looking forward to a good old fashioned cookout on Sunday, but in anticipation of waking up on Monday all sad that now you don't have a cookout to look forward to I would like to remind everyone that Wednesday is a holiday. The birthday of our great nation*, and also of our great Steve Rogerses**, and we'll be celebrating both of those Wednesday afternoon at the Barton's place, right by the Avengers Compound. Remember, he's very shy, so we have to make sure that anything embarrassingly over the top is celebrating the country, not the person(s).

Except the cake. There will be cake and someone's going to have to blow out all the candles.

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.

Jun. 15th, 2018


How committed are you to the idea of working for the Bureau? Because we have eyes on it through Natasha and the ability to return to Tumbleweed at a moment's notice, if something were to happen. I'm restless and want to do more than talk pretty words, to prepare for situations where we might need allies. I want to go help someone, make a difference somewhere.

So I signed on to help with a clean water project in the Port Loko district of Sierra Leone. It may not be the spy work that Colonel Rhodes has tapped Nakia for, but it is something.

I have a project proposal for you, if you're interested in hearing it. I know you're taking on constructions projects right now and a previous version of you helped start one in my backyard, before he was sent back.

I said on the cruise that I'd tell you our history.

We were married, for two years. It happened quickly and it ended shortly before I arrived here when Scott decided to go to war with the Avengers. I thought he was doing the right thing at first, but... I was wrong, and Wakanda suffered for it.

I've been here long enough now to adjust and I have no expectations. You're different people. It would be like holding one twin responsible for the other's actions.

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.

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?

Having magic was weird. I could never figure out if I'd forgotten doing something or it just happened.

And I got water all over the floor and Pup went and lay in it. I think he was cooling down but now I have to brush all the tangles out.

Right so, I ain’t sure when we’ll be actually needing this, but I’ve gone and set up an emergency location for the Displaced for whenever shit hits the fan and we can’t go staying here in Tumbleweed. While I’d really like something like those bracelets we all had on the cruise for teleporting everyone no matter where they might be to be around for use, they just ain’t. Hit me up if’n ya think you can make something like that.

I’ve been working to finish adding up housing options and gotten some people to help limit the path of the local fauna that might’ve caused us all some issues if they were allowed to run around everywhere. It runs on solar power and backup generators. Wind power is getting installed soon once I figure out where would be best to go setting it up. There’s a greenhouse that’s already up and running and livestock are getting settled in this week.

[Pretend there's some pictures inserted here for everyone to see.]

So if’n you’re wanting access to it, what you’re gonna need is a portal set up in your house or your place of business (if its Displaced owned). Put your name down here if ya want in and we’ll get ya set up. Just like on the cruise, only the Displaced will be able to head through them there and back.

Hopefully it won't need to be used, but better to have something in place than not.

Apr. 20th, 2018


Laura, the greenhouse you ordered is all set.

Thanks for the help building it Charlie.

I'm gonna lay this out there. We have no science department right now, so we have no idea where the portals came from, why they showed up, if they're tied to anything we might have done, or if the disappearances have anything to do with the portals.

I know there's a lot of science types out there, but we are severely lacking in equipment, and we're still talking funding with those of the Displaced who offered there help. If you'd like to be included on budget talks because you're interested in helping us fund the place, that can be arranged, just let me know.

For now, we're still handling everything on a volunteer basis.

ETA: This includes magical studies too.

We might need a bigger science department then I thought. We were not prepared at all for those portals to open up around town. Thankfully, the Displaced stepped up, like they always do, but we need to find out if there's a way we can get some kind of advanced warning. Some kind of readings that might give us a hint at where a portal might open up.

Apr. 11th, 2018


There are many things to be discussed, but first and foremost is that if you track dirt into this house, you will clean up after yourself. We will pick up after ourselves and be equally contributing members to the household. However that happens, we can discuss later when we are settled, but keep that thought in your minds.

Second is that Kobix is the living representation of the Cosmic Cube. She will be living with us, which is why her guardian wants us to know this, but this information is highly privileged and is not to be shared with anyone else. If word got out about her origins, things may become complicated. Questions about her can be directed to Bucky or Natasha, but she is now under Wakanda's protection.

Lastly, I will be driving to New York this weekend. Starting Monday, I will be attending appointments with a select few financial institutions to discuss the state of our financial affairs. I will be gone until the following Monday, but it is my hope I return with security in our financial future.

If anyone has any thoughts to offer, please do so.


[Elsa Bloodstone, Warren Worthington III, T'Challa, and Natasha Romanoff]
Natasha and I have met and come up with a basic schedule as well as various positions we believe we will need to make the Resettlement Bureau a success.

Here is the projected plan for this resettlement process.

Here is the projected jobs that will be needed in order to run things smoothly.

Please let us know what your thoughts.


I can't actually say I'm too impressed that the portal decided to take us off the party boat too early for my birthday, but not early enough to actually plan or book anything worth doing. Ugh. Think there's anything happening in the area this weekend? Preferably something other than fighting off whatever terrifying demon creature decided the it didn't like the military.

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.


It was a honor to meet you, the Citizens of Wakanda, and your associates yesterday evening. I do hope we can plan another evening sometime in the near future. With us leaving this port, and being informed that it is intended to be the last, my hope is that we shall be returning to Tumbleweed shortly. Should this be the case, and you'd be willing, I'd like to personally extend an offer to give you a tour of the town upon our return.


Picture attached )

I am suddenly concerned about how I lived my entire life without a domestic cat around my house to enjoy the company of. I missed far too much, and will likely be catching up on it all night long because I'm far too entertained to sleep.
