All of my clothes shrank. :( I only have my SOLDIER uniform, and it smells like cedar from sitting in storage. I've been sneezing all day.

All right, guys. I need a headcount of my portal guards on who is affected by this latest portal shenanigans. I'll need to know if you think you need someone to temporarily take over your spot while this is ongoing.

ETA: Anakin Skywalker will be conducting cartoon reaction times and combat abilities to make sure you're able to handle it in your current state.

Question for the parents out there.

What do you do when your one-and-change-year-old daughter breaks the coffee table?

Asking for a friend.

Aug. 11th, 2018


I need something to point me in the direction of something that isn't algae or coffee. Bonus thanks if someone knows where a mouthy mechanic by the name of Raven or a Librarian named Jake are.

You know, I'm pretty sure we were going to try for an upgrade from Texas, weren't we, my fellow Displaced? I'm not even picky this time. But I'm pretty sure we could manage closer to the ocean. Less heat. Infinitely less tumbleweed.

Though I'm liking the whole 48 hours being reduced to 4. Wondering if already having the vaccines cancels out getting them again though...

Can I get some crayons and paper though? 4 hours is still insanely long for three year olds.

Sooo... any chance I still have my job?

And I need a couple of enrollment packets.

Someone who isn't human come and fight me.

Attention portal-napped members of Tumbleweed.

Team America House is having a BBQ on Sunday. Some of you may know that we all came from a previous alternate reality where we were taken through a portal to Hawaii. As such, a couple of us have become obsessed with Kālua. Cooking in an underground oven. On the menu: pig. Don't worry, there will be vegetarian options on regular BBQ too.

Come join us Sunday at 1pm at our house for eats, and watch Bucky work his cooking skills.

There will be lots of food and music, so if you're free, come stop by!

Blackpoint people, this is non-optional for you unless you have to work or experience some sort of life crisis. Or you're Henry, because I know I can't win that fight.

Dude, I've got a dog tail. This is so cool!

[Private to PH Group]

I'm going to be picking up shifts at the base. Do any of you have advice on getting Angel squared away with daycare or a sitter or something?


Hello Everyone. Some of you may know me, my name is Steve Rogers and I'd like to ask for your assistance.

We're all a long way from home. Some of us have been here for some time and others are still coming in. It may not be the community we asked for, but we're all we've got. The fine folks at the Fort Neil Resettlement Bureau need your help to keep our community safe.

Each person that comes in is welcomed at FNRB. Each threat that comes through? That's assessed and dealt with by the FNRB, too. But we're understaffed. We need more guards, more staff. The pay is pretty great and so are the benefits.

Some of you have special powers or abilities. That's great. Many of you don't. We need you, too. With enough people, we can also provide time for additional training and have plenty to cover for time off. If you care about your new found community and want a way to help out, please consider signing up at FNRB.

Thank you

Would anyone be interested in sparring? I would prefer to fight someone with great strength and endurance, so I do not cause harm to thee.

[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!]

For those of you who've just showed up and are attempting to get jobs or those of you who have been here and are still attempting to find a job, I'd like to remind you all that Maria and I (Daisy) have a list of businesses that are hiring in town. Of course, you can start your own business. If you need us to be a reference for a business not already run by one of the Displaced, just let us know. We have numbers ready.

If you want to come in to talk to us in person at the Resettlement Bureau, we can work with that, too.

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.

A word to the wise: if you spot a centaur, turn around and walk in the opposite direction, lest you find yourself rooted to the spot for twenty minutes while he recites lyrical poetry of middling quality.

Anyone else encountered any mythical creatures? I see from the network we're also dealing with dragons and unicorns. Any others?


Is anyone else having Zolom flashbacks? I'm having Zolom flashbacks.

I really should have stayed at Disney.


[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.

For some reason knowing the woman who played me on television just became a Tony Award Winning Producer is making me overly nostalgic for when random song and dance break outs were typical.

I need to go to go see Once On This Island.

Jun. 17th, 2018


It's been a few days but I didn't see any rush on announcing my return. See things have changed a bit here in Tumbleweed since my last visit. Can't say I'm terribly surprised by it given the way things operate. Still, the town rearranging itself did give me just as much pause as it growing in size last year.

Not sure who is here that I made acquaintance with previously but I'll go ahead and reintroduce myself. Names Ethan Chandler.

Hi! Question.

What does boredom feel like? I'm asking for a friend.

(That friend is me.)

ETA: Thank you all for your responses! With your help, I have concluded that I am, indeed bored. What a fun survey!

[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 am Mako Mori. You may call me Mako.

I got here yesterday but waited to post here until I had a housing situation.

This town has a lot of dirt but it is very ... clean.

Anyone else have kids from the 7 to 10 range? Because while I think I'm amazing, my daughter doesn't think I'm a fun playmate and would like to upgrade me to actual kid.

We saw each other's plans. We know it's doable. And back home, we did do this even if Stone, Jones, and Reyes are from earlier in that timeline and never got to see it for themselves. So my question, I suppose, is how legitimate do we want to get with it? Because that's also doable, but we'd need to not live in Texas to do that if the Displaced want to stay under the radar.

Let me tell you. You do not want super senses when you are changing diapers.

Who wants to go shopping with me?

Jun. 1st, 2018



Post ball(slash whatever Friday night plans you have) pancake breakfast bar tomorrow, Team America House. 10:30. You're all welcome. Team America House, your butts will be dragged out of bed if you're not already awake.

Zack Fair
Hey! How’s everything going?
I’m thinking about hosting a crafting for a cause afternoon in about two weeks. I figured we’d start with something simple like crocheting hats or beadwork to sell in a fair and donate the proceeds afterwards, but I’m open to suggestions!

May. 22nd, 2018


I keep hearing this same song. Everywhere I go. I've heard it today more times than I can count. What the hell is a duck tails?

May. 20th, 2018




We're an Easter Egg!

May. 12th, 2018


Emergency alert. I cannot see in the dark. Repeat. I cannot see in the dark. This would have been fine, except I normally can see in the dark, and didn't turn on the lights when Angel woke up at three in the morning. I'm fine, but I'm pretty sure the lamp I knocked over will never recover.

May. 9th, 2018


Okay, so ... my house is here, which is weird. Also a problem because I'm not a plant person. Aerith tried, I promise, but there are some things I cannot do. Like take care of orchids.

Angel's settled in just fine, though. She has her crib and her stuffed chocobo, and that's all she needs.

Next step for Zack Fair, SOLDIER First Class? Get a job.

May. 6th, 2018


So, this is really nice and all, but Aerith's gonna kill me. I was supposed to have Angel changed and down for a nap by six (PM, not AM), but now it's eight in the morning somehow, and we're not even in the right state. And Cloud's made a mess on my shoulder twice. And I've been up since 0200 hours, which wasn't such a big deal when I was in the army but it is when you have a baby and just ...
