Strange man on the street tried to put a camera in my face without warning and blames me for his broken equipment. He should be happy that's all I broke.

I still can't believe how many Starbucks you have. I'm pretty sure I saw them building a Starbucks across the street from another Starbucks. I like coffee, but I mean why.

As always Future Industries is looking for girls and young women interested in engineering and sciences. We have a very good paid internship program as well as classes and our R&D department is second to none.

Yes, that includes you Mr. Stark.

Scientists have found a new moon orbiting Neptune, and it's name is pretty damn adorable. Hippocamp after a sea creature from Greek mythology.


It's so tiny even Hubble missed it. Graphs!

It could enable the discovery of other moons and 'exoplanets' outside the solar system - some of which could harbour life.


That would be so cool. By the by did Oppy ever get rescued?

I moved here last month and I swear I saw melting snow still hanging out in places??? This is California, I LEFT Canada to get AWAY from the snow. Me and snow are not besties anymore, okay?

Then I get on here to see if anyone has an explanation, and, wow. Are you telling me this entire COUNTY is like this? You know that's not really hallucinogens in the water, right? Maybe I should go back home now before whatever's actually in the water gets to me, but that would be boring. So, challenge accepted? Bring it on, whatever it is.

Just someone tell me where to get some good coffee, because Dunkin' Donuts isn't it.

Future Industries Press Release

After ten months, FI CEO Asami Sato has returned to Orange County. Ms. Sato left FI in capable hands in April 2018, and embarked upon a world tour. While abroad, Ms. Sato oversaw the breaking of ground in a new Girls in STEM center in Ontario, Canada, the start-up of a salt to fresh water plant in Mozambique, a satellite launch platform off the coast of California, and numerous other charitable and technological projects that Future Industries funds around the world. She even substituted for Future Industries' Formula 1 driver in the Monte Carlo Grand Prix last year.

In honor of her return, the Future Industries Race Course is once again open to the public and a special race is scheduled for February 28th! Prospective racers can compete in heats leading up to this race, where the top 10 will compete against Ms. Sato herself.

The top three racers will have $10,000 donated to the reputable charity of their choice. And if anyone is able to beat Ms. Sato, they'll a win 2019 FI Lightning electric sports car

End Press Release



Okay, now that that's out of the way, have I missed anything particularly earth shattering?

And I'm serious about that race and the fact that no one is going to win that car ;)

I think I may have had a couple of those Dreams you all have been talking about, but I'm not really sure.

The first one I had I saw what I think is a prehistoric forest. I don't know if that really counts, but when I woke up I realized that I'd been asleep for twenty-four hours. Is that...does that happen here? Like, is that normal?

The other dream was different, it was actually kind of normal, just me moving into a new apartment, but when I woke up, it didn't feel as though it was a dream. I actually expected to be in that apartment. Is that normal?

My dreams came back. Besides being sickeningly adorable with my girlfriend, I've been hard at work planning the rebuilding of the city after Kuvira's attack.

The president has been both an obstacle and taking credit, and is pushing us to get the job done in a time frame that's next to impossible. He just wants to win reelection and I just want to strangle him.

It doesn't help that I've been getting threats from one of the Triads. Protection racket, that sort of thing. Nothing I can't handle, though it took some convincing to get Korra to realize I can still handle myself.

Backdated to late Tuesday night

i know you all don't know this but we all almost died today

sorry about that. don't worry though i watched my brother's plane take off so we're probably good for now. i might be a ticking time bomb though so keep an eye out just in case.

stay safe out there.

i'm sorry if i was kind of short before but thanks for your help. i'll likely have questions when i hate myself less am sober wake up tomorrow but for tonight this is all i have.

so how evil do you think you have to be, on a scale of one to dream luthor, to accidentally almost blow up all of southern california in an attempt to turn your sister's harmless invention into the perfect bomb that you can then sell to the baddest of guys for money money money to get your so-called good guy company off the ground? because i'm personally kinda stumped.

Apparently instead of rebuilding our barn that came down in January, my brother has gotten it in his head that he’d rather have a greenhouse. He’s already gotten the structure built. On the plus side, he’s going to be growing vegetables in there (which he has told me he expects me to use when I cook – twist my arm…). On the downside, though, I’ve lost my workspace to work on my own vehicles. I don’t want to take up a bay at Rainbow Motors that would be better used on a customer’s car for my personal projects. Does anyone have a space they wouldn’t mind renting to me?

I have the sudden urge to donate an exorbitant amount to reliable and respectable news sources and journalism programs. Does any one have any recommendations as to which programs and/or news outlets should be on the receiving end?


[Separate but identical messages sent to Elsa, Jean Grey, Emma Frost, and Kara]

I'm so sorry. I (quite naively) didn't realize that my personal relationships would be dragged into the spotlight so handedly as my company became more public. If there is anything that I can do to ease your mind in regards to this issue, I'd be happy to do it.

I think the hardest thing about being a CEO of a new company during the holidays is learning to take care of your employees. Apparently I now have over two hundred (and growing) children whose schedules I need to balance, while somehow not shutting the whole office down for the entire month of December.

In unrelated news, I may need to hire a house sitter for next month. That, and get a more comfortable office couch.

Hey, it's Sunday Night at 10pm, what better thing do you have to do than come to a bar?

The answer is nothing, that's what. Nope, I don't want to hear it. Even if you're already at a bar, just get a cab and come to mine. No excuse is worth missing half priced shots of Patron. Oh, are you hungry? Get yourself some chicken wings while you're at it. Shoot some pool. Get a beer, get five and let me call you a cab.

I don't know what we're celebrating yet, but it's a party so come on down. Right, you probably need a name to plug into your google maps. It's called The Inferno, but please don't literally set it on fire. The local Fire Chief probably frowns on that.

There's a weird level of technology in my Dreams. We've got some tech that's incredibly advanced. Like the cell-phone device I got this morning? This thing is way better than my Samsung. It makes normal calls, does two-way, messaging, emails, takes and stores video, acts as a game controller or the game, you can even connect it to a desk and display pictures and maps and whatever else. While we do have cars in the larger cities, the main mode of transportation from one place to another is boat, airship, train, but mostly horses and walking. It's weird, but a kind of peaceful weird.

In my Dreams there are these things called teleportation grenades (my squad calls them Future Cubes, which in my opinion is a more creative name). As the name implies, they teleport things from one point to another instantaneously by using two grenades. Or if you use the alternate setting, you can put a large object -- like a tank -- into a space of holding (for lack of better term) until you need it.

They can technically teleport people too...but it's not a pleasant experience. Unless you like the feeling of your insides being on your outsides and then shoved back in again.


....anyway, I found a set in my living room this morning and may have had a little too much fun teleportation things around the apartment.

For my employees, I do apologize for disappearing for so long - I had a bit of a family emergency I had to take care of and then a personal emergency when I got back that I'm still trying to drink away, thanks to this hell town. I'm back for good now, and ready to get back to work.

For anyone new: Hello. I'm Lena Luthor, CEO of L-Corp. We're still hiring, so I'd be delighted to speak with you.

Okay, so. I am officially on the dream train.

And I can't really complain, I guess? Overall, my other life is pretty cool. Master of three out of four elements aint bad. Plus I got this cool winter outfit that I will have literally no use for in California.

I do have a... concern, though. I tried to take a shower this morning, and the water was all... wonky? Like, shooting out in different directions and not at all falling down like it usually does and now I have to clean the bathroom because it looks like it's been through a typhoon.. I'm not stupid enough to think that there's no connection between my being able to control water in my dreams, and water here being totally out of control.

Not cool, dreams.

Lets make this a proper competition.

Future Industries is always looking for fresh blood, particularly among women and girls. We're prepared to meet or exceed any salary the competition has to offer.

In addition, we offer free medical and dental coverage, credits and scholarships for advanced schooling, and paid internships for those just starting out, with room for advancement. We're also in need of two new department heads. Which leads me to my next announcements.

We've begun preparations to build a fleet of airship, for both commercial and personal purposes. They'll be cheaper and faster than conventional trucks or cargo ships for all but the largest cargo. We expect the first six to be available later this year. Three prototypes are currently available for viewing at our publically accessible race track. One luxury liner, a cargo hauler, and a model suitable for tourist applications such as the Grand Canyon, or people transport. I've taken to calling that one the skybus.

Additionally, FI is building a new advanced particle accelerator. When complete, it will be one of the largest in the world, available for both research and practical applications at low cost to scientists.

I've come to the conclusion that I've been wasting my life.

(Before you stop reading: Don't. I assure you, this is not another mopey, self-reflective post about the love and loss and dreams we don't ask for. It's an offer.)

It's true. I've been wasting my life, toiling as just another staff engineer at yet another fortune 500 company with an impressive name (no offense, Mr. Stark), and not doing something real with the knowledge and talent I possess. There's more to life than being trapped in a lab, being told what to make.

So, I won't anymore. As of today, I'm free to announce the creation of L, Incorporated (or, L-Corp, if you will), a technologies start-up that plans to modernize the industry from the ground up. And, frankly, I need you to come with me. I have investors, inventors, and connections already forged, but I need more.

Engineers: Whatever you're being paid currently, L-Corp is prepared to double it. If you're someone whose name and work I recognize, I'll triple it.

Students: If you are in any of the STEM fields, I'm willing to offer a merit-based paid internship.

Anyone else: If you give me a reason to hire you, I will.

Apply now at lcorp.com, but be sure to mention to me that you plan to do so. I'll make sure my hiring staff knows that we've spoken previously.

Thank you, everyone, for your attention.

Okay, so I guess I'm not dead. That doesn't mean things aren't going to get worse, though.

Do you ever look at yourself in the dreams and think, "Please don't" only to know damn well your dream self is going to do what you told him not to do? Because that's basically me every time I have a dream anymore. I'm really tired of it, too. I'm tired of watching myself do things that will eventually hurt the people I care about, that could kill them. I know I'm angry at Olympus and at the gods and...basically at everything, but can't I just have healthy coping mechanisms for once instead of "Destroy Olympus and probably end up killing all of humanity"? It would be nice for a change.

Maybe I could get therapy? A hobby? Anything? I seriously would like to not use my dad being a neglectful asshole as an excuse for my behavior because it's a really piss poor excuse.

Oh my god, I wish to strangle my brother. He does not think before he acts! He just goes in without thinking of the consequences of his actions. He assassinated the owner of the Bank of England, who was a Templar, and subsequently broke the bloody bank. England's economy could have collapsed had I not recovered the stolen plates that were being used to create counterfeit money. As usual, I must fix the messes he makes around the city.

To clarify, this was in my dreams, he hasn't actually done that in this life. As far as I know. Perhaps I should make some calls and ensure that he hasn't sent England's economy into a tailspin or done anything else stupid that I have to fix.

Well, shit. Dreams again. I'm on the floor below Eph, Setrakian, and the others and I'm supposed to turn on my device so the Master will be stunned and they can just knock him into the lead box. My device isn't working. I fiddle with it, do some rewiring, and all the while my guys have to fight an extremely strong Strigoi. Finally I get it to work and Quinlan puts his daddy away, hopefully for good, but when I get up there I see Eph is hurt. Bleeding. I volunteer to stay with him while the others dump the box into the ocean, but Eph tells me they might need someone who can operate the device. I go with the others to drop the box in the ocean. That's where my Dream ends. Somehow I don't think the plan will go very smoothly.

Strigoi never die out quietly and they certainly won't let their Master be imprisoned for all of eternity.

Er, anyway. Hi, Orange County. I'm Lena. I'm an engineer at Stark Industries (For now. If I don't find a more efficient cooling mechanism for this generator I may be out of a job soon). Please help me find things to do that aren't just work, so that my brother will get off of my back.

My daughter turned eleven yesterday. I really need to brace myself for these pre-teen years. And puberty. These are some of the times I have dreaded. I shall simply assume that this is karma coming back to bite me for when I was her age.
