So who's got two thumbs and isn't terribly attached to either of them? Hopefully you guys.

WWW is looking for volunteers for a side project.

Jan. 7th, 2020


I'm getting that 'need to build things' itch again, so if anyone has projects they want to do, I'm happy to help.

Hey. Um. I was thinking. Maybe...maybe [...] do you think engineering would be a good idea? I mean, I guess I could start my own contracting business or like go to school for that. Trades pay pretty well apparently. I dunno. It might be stupid.

While I appreciate the faux snow setup in Phoenix Park, any interest in turning one of the other parks into a literal snowglobe? The 60 degree weather is apparently putting a crimp in my kid's holiday cheer, and I'm inclined to do something about it. I'm sure the locals won't mind. Been awhile since the town had a gas leak anyway.

Dec. 3rd, 2019


Who here might be interested to work with me on either a) prosthetics (we can always do better! help more people!) or b) backwards engineering the correctives from the space station outside town that can be used to stabilize wounds, heal broken limbs, and in the far far "we got this" future... regrowing limbs? Their tech can already do it, but we haven't been able to utilize it.

I was working on it with my brother, Matt Holt, and Raven Reyes. But now Raven's also gone, so... more people would be welcome.

My "ears" appear to be compromised. Diagnostics are showing there is no problem, but I cannot hear anything. Not internal body sounds, nor static which my implants sometimes pick up on.

Is there someone willing to look at my implants?

While there's a break in big weird things happening and upping the stress levels, I figured it's a good time to ask: how are you holding up?

Jarvis, I need a drink.

Peg, help me out here, will ya?

Steve! How... how friggin many of you are there?

....that's one hell of a smooth process for newcomers. How long has this been happening for them to get it that perfect?!

This team is going to be great! Go team red!! I vote for keeping the red as our team color.

I'd like to go ahead and nominate Pidge for captain, because she's amazing at flying and strategy and leadership. I'm not at all biased, it's totally true.

And anyone got suggestions for team names?

Guess what, Quidditch players? We've got enough of you to field four full teams! Quidditch practices start next week in the evenings, on this schedule. And games will start in September, after each team's had a couple weeks to train together.

Teams should pick a team name, color (if you want a different one from what you've already been assigned), and captain, and let me know about your decisions on that anytime between now and the start of the season. Good luck, everyone! I can't wait to see you on the pitch.

I'm impartial, of course, but I think Team 3 is gonna be the best.

(OOC: if you'd like to make any changes to your character's position or team, please let me know ASAP so I can figure out how to arrange it! I did my best to accommodate everyone and I think it worked out pretty well, but I'm happy to try to work with you. :D)

[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

Anakin Solo
First off, because it can't be said enough, happy birthday. This time the late edition. But I'm pretty sure you earn a month of them after the big one-eight just to celebrate people not insisting you're a kid anymore.

And now that that's out of the way, I know you'd been thinking about options for life after high school before. So, what's the situation? College? Full time work? Part time multiple places to check your options? My offer's still on the table, just so you know.

Jul. 12th, 2018


[Tony Stark (904913)]
I’m not going to be at work today. Maybe tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted.

Can you handle class tonight with Pixie? I have a minor situation. Don’t eat the blackberries I brought home.

(OOC Note: There will be an IC/OOC post for the magic class being taught that covers the whole month of July so that those who participate know what their characters are studying. Look for that post closer to this weekend.)

[Tony Stark (MCU)]
I'm not going to make it tonight. Rain check?

Jun. 29th, 2018


TONY STARK (904913)
I'm not going to make it in today. Bit of a [...] team emergency that I don't know all the details on yet.

I'm okay, thou No, that's a lie If something comes up and you need me, though, let me know? I can at least try to do a little bit from here.

(ooc: added a few hours later)
Hey. [...] I know you're hanging around outside. I'm sorry, I know the waiting is hard.

Guys! They're building a space station! I'm going to go see if I can get in on this.

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.

[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.

Don't forget, birthday grill out on Tuesday. Bring whomever you want.

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?

May. 16th, 2018


What new level of Tartarus is this place? Yes, I heard the welcome spiel - alternate dimension, mysterious portal, all that good stuff - but what's the ETA on a ticket back home? It's absolutely imperative I get back immediately.

Unless this handsome asshole is around. Or this one. Preferably both of them. Then I can take my time.

Food truck hours this week: Monday to Friday, 10 to 3. Councils 7, 6, 7, 2, 9. Serving traditional Korean and KoMex fusion. Cash, credit, e-pay. If you have a special request, leave it here.

[TONY STARK (904913)]
Do you have a problem if I move to part time? I can help you hire another part time office admin first and divide up our work if that makes it easier for you.

My financial situation isn't as strained as I thought it would be and I want to devote more time to magical research. But if you ever do open up a magical division, let me know?

Well, since we've had a few beeps on the Network, this seems as good a time as any to go over the new upgrade to the system that we've pushed through thanks to Amadeus. More may come later, but for now this is what we got.

Due to study of the signatures of the portals, we now have two different types of beeps that'll go out on the Network. First, a tone and a green pop-up text that says 'INCOMING' means someone is coming through the portal into this world. Hopefully that'll be limited to just people popping up at the facility, but considering all the monsters that came through a few weeks ago, it could be an 'be on your toes' alert too. Second, a tone and a red pop-up text that says 'OUTGOING' means someone left by portal and gone back to their home world hopefully.

You may not return to your regularly scheduled programming.

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?

The people who disappear... do they come back?


What motel is the cheapest?

[Tony Stark (All)]
We need to talk.


Thank you to all who helped deal with the various threats to the town yesterday. All threats have been neutralized or contained.

From a thorough look at various security footage from different store fronts in each location, it appears that a portal opened up in each area, releasing the various creatures into the town.

We're unsure why they activated outside of the room the portal is contained in. We're going to need to put together a team that can study the portal, inside and outside. As best we can manage.

Apr. 10th, 2018


We're looking into making this base disappear from prying eyes. Unplottable, I believe is one of the spells for it. Maybe make the building still look as if no one is using it.

Is that something you could do? And if so, would you be willing to?
Power. We want off the grid. You guys are both smart guys with clean energy sources.

Tony, Avengers Tower was self-sustaining — or would have been — for a year when the Chitauri attacked. You think you could replicate that here with what we have? And if so, what kind of deal can we make for it.

I woke up this morning with a cat on my face.

In my bed.

In my house that should be at the bottom of the Pacific.

To the soothing voice of J.A.R.V.I.S.

The improbability of each of these facts is staggering, and yet here we are, as if the last four years had never happened. I can live with that. But the cat is another thing entirely.

So [...] my friends at the military are dead. And my lab is gone, like it never existed.


post-dated to Monday, April 9th at 9:50am.

I guess some of us could use jobs now.

Some of you have been here longer and may be hiring?

I know it doesn't seem like much, and there are other larger concerns happening at the same time, but perhaps we could band together and at least get this small thing out of the way.

Look in the comments below.

HELP WANTED: For anyone running an organization (business, school, church, nonprofit, etc) looking for help. Change the subject to the type of position or skill you're looking for to make it easier for others to find. Job description and number of openings would be helpful.

JOB SEEKING: For all the job hunters out there. Change the subject to a position, skill or relevant education or work experience you have so others can help you network and find a position. Feel free to reply to someone and direct them to a Displaced or Local owned organization that might be a good fit.

OTHER: If you need a loan to start your own organization, or something else not covered by the help wanted and job seeking comments, put it there. Again, changing the subject to some kind of a summary will help others find it faster.


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.

Hey all you lovely people. I am on a mission and I might need your help considering how my luck is running so far.

So! If anyone happens to see this lovely Pokemon:

[ooc: pretend it's an actual photo of an Emolga sitting on Tony's workbench with Batman the cat looking unamused and slightly singed in the background]

TELL ME. I will give you any of whatever Pokemon I get to you plus other stuff when we get to a place where money actually means something again.

And speaking of Pokemon I have, if anyone wants a Yungoos, Crabrawler, or Pikipek, let me know. I'm going to hang on to them for the rest of the day, but tomorrow I'm going to set them free or give them to a center if they need any of them to open up some of my pokeballs.

Edit: Also a Drowzee is up for grabs now too.

Apr. 1st, 2018


Got any plans today?

So I know that the engineering contest kind of went to hell. We want to try and pick up where we left off?

I know I've been distant and I'm sorry about that. I know we're all going through the same thing, having to leave behind yet another world where we thought we could go grow old, leaving people we loved behind, so it's no excuse that I've been closing myself off from people. From you guys.

I know there's not a lot of us, so I want to make sure all of us stay safe and stick together. Even you, Barnes, though you're still a pain in my ass. So dinner or something, soon? We can figure out those trackers Aria and Ezekiel were talking about.

Calling all engineers. Especially you Tony Stark.

So, we've been on this boat for awhile. Away from our workshops, away from some of our bigger projects, and we all know the dangers of idle hands.

With that in mind, I'm putting together a little competition. A good old race. Winner gets bragging rights and a special, super secret prize that my dear friend Rhodey is setting up.

Now I'm sure you're wondering where the engineering comes into this race. Well, you won't be running the race yourself. Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to build a contraption/vehicle/robot to go through the obstacle course that'll be set up in the Climbing Course area. Anyone who cants to participate can pick up your box of materials you'll have to use on Friday at 1:30pm. For the sake of level playing field and making this a real challenge, you can only use that box of materials in the creation of your 'racer'. You'll have the entire weekend to craft your masterpiece before we start the race process 4pm on Sunday. Good luck!

I know how to make an entrance, but usually I know a little about what's going on before I get there. Fashionably late.

Am I fashionably late at least?

Oh no, I'm not early, am I???

It's come to my attention that I haven't done a good job of meeting all the scientists around here. I mean, there's at least one I haven't talked to - one named Ray? - but I bet there are even more. Who wants to get together and talk science and tech sometime?? Bounce ideas off each other?? Figure out how some stuff around here works??

Did you guys have fun last night? The ball was pretty great, right?

You guys are really cute, just so you know.

Even without being interrupted by aliens or robots, I had a really good time last night.


Thanks for the company last night. Drinking alone is never a good time.

So you want the "I'm not angry, just disappointed," lecture or the "What the hell were you thinking? Can you explain yourself?" one? I've been working on the "I'm getting real tired of your shit, Tony, I gotta go take a fly break." It's on revision 37.

You know anything about Tony getting sent to the brig?

I'll give Violet this, she didn't over-state the pretty much amazing coolness of Middle Earth.

I also just want to give a head's up, if you see a astromech roaming around that you don't recognize, that's mine; his name is Fiver, and he's taking this whole Assassins game thing really seriously. Let me know if he gives anyone any trouble he shouldn't cause I don't think he's creative enough yet to think too terribly outside his programmin

I've got a non-urgent question for you.

Originally, I was thinking about going to university next year, but the whole being just pulled from school mid-year made me think, maybe that's not the best idea. Cause who knows if this is going to be a 'hey, you were at home learning stuff and everything is cool' sort of situation, or a 'surprise you've been gone for three months and probably the portal didn't have enough courtesy to drop you from classes before its too late for a refund so have fun with extra student loans and F's on your transcripts' sort of situation. And the whole unpredictability of it makes me wonder if there are better things to do.

I'm good with mechanics stuff, and a lot of the aerospace engineering stuff I wanted to go to school for isn't out of reach just by applying myself to reading and doing probably.

So I guess, I'm feeling out options - would you potentially have a job for me, full time, when I finish up high school?
