April Fools' Day is about betrayal and I'm not down with that.


Happy Easter, everyone. To those that celebrate and for those don't, I hope your Sunday is going well.

I've never been that religious, but I've always liked anything that brought family and friends together.

I haven't been I should probably get out of this room today. How are we on the ship? I was learning a lot assisting the other engineers, is there anything more I can help with?

And thank you, stranger, for the Easter basket.

Fuck it The flowers are magic. They're not going to wilt. They're also not poisonous.

Any other dumb questions? I may or may not answer them.

Stitch went back to his ohana. But his ohana here is going to miss him.

I only got to know Ava on this ship, and cannot pretend to know the grief that you are all feeling, but I am sorry for the loss.

I'm writing only because Alina and I were her suitemates, and I imagine that some of you, at least, will want to at least look through her things and decide what to do with them. I can't let you into her room - you'll likely have to ask one of the robots for that - but I can let you into the suite. Or I can ask the robots to let me in and pack things up myself, if you'd rather not deal with it.

If you can't make any decisions about it right now, that's understandable. It's an open offer.


Hello, I'm Betsy Braddock and I am relatively new as the school's counselor. I wanted to take a moment to reach out to you — particularly our students. Unfortunately, in my world, battles are nothing new, but that doesn't mean that we don't all suffer in the wake of disaster and tragedy.

I'd like to offer my ear and my expertise to anyone who needs it. Grief strikes us all in various ways, and you should never think that "someone else has it worse." If that were the only way you could grieve, then only one person would be allowed. You are allowed to feel bad. You are allowed to feel sad. You are allowed to feel angry. And I'm here to listen and help you in any way that I can.

If you do not feel comfortable speaking with me, Charlie Xavier and Sam Wilson (the one who speaks to birds) are also available.

I missed who was protecting me when I had to re-morph but, you know, thanks

The robots that are still stuck actually look even weirder now that most of them are working again. I keep expecting them to start moving just as I walk past them.

does anyone got paper?

is there anything i can bring by?

how many fingers am i holding up??

hey... thanks for helping me with the arm. i


it helped a lot. i don't know what i would have done

some of my friends got hurt, but the doctors said they'd be okay. i wanted to know that you were okay too.

Note: I won't be responding to comments about Ava because while Alfred is very sad about this despite not knowing her, he doesn't believe it's his place to say more.]


Alright, with the pirates moving the hell on and the ship back in operating order we need to figure out a few things.

How many of ours are hurt?
Do we got any sort of numbers? I know the medbay seemed to be pretty dang packed when I was down there. The robots seem to be back online to work with fixing people but medical personnel what else are y'all needing? Should we continue triage in a separate area for more minor injuries y'all can deal with?

From the doctors: Small things that just need an antiseptic, sutures, or ice and rest can be done in the adjacent areas

Does every kid got someone to go home to right now?
If not we're gonna need to pair them up with people if'n their parents/guardians are hurting. Or keep up the school being a place for them to stick to. If we do that we're gonna need others to stay down there with them.

We'll keep kids at the school until one of their guardians is able to come and retrieve them. Or someone in their guardians place.

Clean Up?
Who's available and NOT needing to be in the medbay or in bed resting to help out with cleanup?

Is all the ship back in order?
Anyone able to help us figure out if'n anything is still offline?

Not available:
  • Explorer Lounge (5)
  • Constellation Theater (5)
  • Pacific Rim (6)
  • Coffee Bar(6)
  • The Cafe(6)

    I'm sure I'm missing things. If ya got something we're needing to work on, list it here and we'll try to get it sorted.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I am absolutely ready for this universe trip to be over, so I can get back to Tumbleweed to my life, my own bed, my own COLLEGE CURRICULUMS.

    I need to crawl into your bed and forget I'm missing half of my life back home right now.

    [OOC: Not too long after Quake's shaking of the ship, the lights flicker on and off several times. Sorry for the false hope. Power is not restored, Kobik's throwing a tantrum.]

    They're doubling up patrols.

    Everyone should take some if they haven't already or aren't other occupied in engineering, medical, or food.

    ETA: Also is everyone alright?

    Mar. 22nd, 2018


    i bought a postcard with a lone palm tree
    silhouetted in the reds of a setting sun
    thinking you might miss me
    like i do you
    but they said you wouldn't even notice me gone

    signed wish you were here and bon voyage
    til we sail through the next buoyage


    hey is there a list of what rooms people are staying in??

    Mar. 21st, 2018


    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!

    Okay. So I've gotten a little less confused since arriving. My name is Quake. I am still reeling a little from just how many versions of people there are and that everyone seems to be older than I'm used to.

    But at least there's pretty good pizza on board. Also I'm kind of tired. Does anyone know where room 1003 is for when I get out of Medbay?


    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???


    Well I'm fairly sure I heard five beeps, and so far we've only heard about two disappearances.

    Mar. 19th, 2018


    Clarke's gone.

    Why are people leaving?


    With a heavy heart, I must announce this to my fellow cruiseship members: Francisco Ramon is no longer traveling with us.

    I'm sorry to bring this news so soon after a night of merriment and joy. He's doing pretty great at home, though, so no need to worry how things turn out for him.


    So today's my 18th birthday. Feels kind of weird to be having it.

    Mar. 18th, 2018


    Right so. School. For anyone new, please remember that anyone 17 and younger has to sign up and attend school. If'n ya don't, the ship will not let you get off of it whenever we get to the next port. Please talk to Scott Summers or myself if ya got any questions.

    Also, since we don't want the kids getting poisoned during this Home Ec course that has now entered the cooking phase (and love ya Professor, but ya can't cook), we're in need of someone who can teach that for a few weeks. If'n ya'd like to give it a go, let me know!


    [Friends (semi-loose so if you think you count you probably do)]
    I remembered some things.

    I'm alright. It's good for once. I'm just going to find somewhere quiet for a while.

    Mar. 16th, 2018


    Has anyone seen Bart around? I was making the chips we were talking about and wanted to see how long it had been for her, but the robots are saying she's not on board anymore.

    Jon, I think we lost our new best friend :(


    Anakin? Leia?

    Mar. 15th, 2018


    Beware the Ides of March...!!

    Also, Melissa, has anyone asked you to the ball yet because I think that's a good idea. To ask you.


    Hey Logan.

    Will you go to the ball with me? )

    Mar. 14th, 2018


    It's 3/14 somewhere in another dimension so it's time eat all the pie! Dibs on the chocolate cream.

    Also, clearly someone needs to make a dating app aimed specifically at our Displaced community.

    And everyone should now be safe from projectile bears and wayward paint balls.

    Mar. 13th, 2018


    My fellow passengers,

    Princess Zelda and I are holding a Spring Ball on the boat in the Explorer Lounge this Saturday, March 17, beginning at 7pm. I've been told that was the appropriate time for a Ball to begin. There will be food and drinks. Everyone is invited to this, no age restriction at all.

    I know by then we will have left this port, and while it doesn't come close to replacing one, perhaps it would be a good distraction from the disappointment of leaving one so soon. I confess to wanting to go back to Middle Earth myself. I do hope you'll join us!

    You must come to this! Do you have something suitable to wear?


    The castles are more beautiful than I expected. I think I will try Agrabah next, for spices. Ororo (the elder), what would you recommend?

    If this is from you, thank you. It is beautiful.

    Now I remember why I don't drink that much. HANGOVERS ARE THE WORST. Why do I feel like my mouth is the Eternal Desert?

    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.

    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.


    later that day... (cuz I gottah go to work)

    [Filter: No one named Baelfire or Neal Cassidy allowed.]

    So I got this bean. Apparently beans take you to the cool places you can't normally get to. Long story. I had to pretend to be a bear for this little guy with a beard. Whatever.

    Anyway, apparently I don't know if it's going to take me to a cool place or the cool place. So, if anyone else gets a bean, want to check some places out?

    I'm pretty legit and haven't been in a good fight in a while. So. If you need protection or whatever...


    Do not go to Neverland.

    Mar. 6th, 2018


    Enchanted Forest, huh?

    Well sounds interesting enough. Ain't gonna lie when I say I miss Middle Earth, but fairytales should be fun. Or at least interesting. Gotta say the forest sounds great, but I could be convinced to go to Camelot.


    One week down, one week to go.

    For all you surviving Assassin players out there, we're not stopping for the Enchanted Forest so bring your bears, spoons, paintballs, et cetera with you when you travel.

    Mar. 2nd, 2018


    Food poisoning. I would not recommend it.

    I still feel so sluggish. Anything interesting happen in the past couple of days?


    Hey, Tony! Disco Night, tomorrow!


    Vision was sent home. Again

    No, I am not okay, nor do I wish to discuss it. I will be on the main deck tending to my plants. No one has to worry about me using my powers and hurting someone.

    Feb. 28th, 2018


    By a show of hands.. or comment "hands".. how many on this ship are experience some sort of GI discomfort? Stomach cramping, nausea, maybe vomiting, possible diarrhea, all either with or without a fever?

    I don't know what exactly is going on but it's probably to get an estimate number of people who are getting sick so we can make sure we know where it came from. Please not Middle Earth

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


    I am not sure who mentioned it originally, but I would like to thank them for the idea of bringing plants onto the ship. Viz and I now have several pots in our room with cuttings that I will be transplanting to my garden when we return to Tumbleweed.


    Can we just take the whole port with us? Is that possible? Please?

    For those of you who have been here far longer than I have. What one place should I visit tonight? Preferably someplace quiet and not overly rowdy.

    Feb. 23rd, 2018


    I wish we didn't have to leave. I really like the Elves and the Hobbits the most. I spent time helping in the gardens in Hobbiton, and I spent time reading some elven texts. They even gave me a really pretty necklace, and the stone matches my eyes perfectly. Gondor and Rohan are really amazing as well. It's hard to say which place is my favorite.
