So the real reason Bats keeps training all those Robins an' Batgirls an' junk is so that there’s eventually this gradually cascading order of vigilantes protecting the city, right? When you defeat one, there’s a slightly smaller one just behind, ready to kick your butt.

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.

I can't help but be really excited for another Royal Wedding. I'm sure it won't be as big as William and Kate's, but it's a Royal Wedding none the less and if it's live on TV like William and Kate's, I'll be there, watching it no matter what time it's on.

I escaped from the dungeon, but Hans found me. He told me I'd killed my sister with my powers. I just kind of shut down.

I still feel a little shut down.

I have to admit I do love how all out and involved people get over here when it comes to Halloween. It's a favourite of mine.

That said, does anybody know of any big Halloween parties going on this year? I'm not usually one for such things but I don't think I can resist this time.

I think after last year - I’m just going to skip dressing up for Halloween and going anywhere. I’m going to stay home and just give out candy to the Trick or Treaters in my building. And of course whatever’s left at the end of the night I get to eat.

So what's this place like for Halloween? Big parties? Real ghosts that seem to walk around?

I think my dreams are running with the seasons. First I had a dream I saw the end of the world from the year 5 billion. The last had aliens that appeared like ghosts and brought the dead back to life. Scary movie plots if I ever heard em.

I've begun to think that I should have some kind of weekly concert. Something where not just I would perform, but all proceeds would go to charity. Too many dark things have happened this last month alone.

I will purchase a venue, and invite any on the network who wish to help. Performers in particular.

[The following was posted using the communication systems in Wash's SPARTAN VI helmet]

I was hoping it wouldn't come to this. The black armored mercenaries currently running around the county and the two towers now looming are from my and Carolina's dreams. It took three years, but here we are.

The tower currently hanging out in Irvine is known as the Communications Temple. You may experience difficulty getting messages to others since in my dreams the Temple was used to jam all radio communication. I'm not even sure if this will go through properly, but it's the best option I have to mass warn others. If you are able to read this and get word out to others, please do so.

Carolina and I are checking out the tower now. Hopefully we can take it from the mercenaries and deactivate it.

I thought my dreams calmed down a little, but then they... didn't.

Coronation Day didn't exactly go well. Someone decided to marry a man she just met. And that didn't help my stress levels so I kind of got outed as an ice witch. I fled the Kingdom and escaped into the mountains, where I built this beautiful palace made of ice. As soon as I woke up I drew it.

For the first time since I was a child in my dreams, I feel free.

I may have overextended myself utilizing my dream powers during the past few days.

I have the ability to call the ghosts of my ancestors to me and give them the ability to fight alongside me in this realm. Since my dream ancestors are not here, it seems I brought from the beyond my ancestors in this life - both from my adopted parents (do not ask me how that happened) and my birth parents. They were very effective in helping to drive back and destroy quite a number of these demons and undead.

However, it seems they do not wish to leave just yet, after helping me in all the fighting. I now have a Civil War Union soldier, a World War II Marine, two ancient African warriors, and a Highlander in my living room.

Goddess help me.

There's this giant thing attacking Future Industries. I've rigged up a Telsa coil that's keeping it at bay but I don't know how long it'll hold up.

I punch and shock things, human sized things. This is way out of my league.

I died. For real this time.

We coulda brought me back. Gabrielle tried, she fought so hard for it. But if we did, we would have doomed thousands of souls to an eternity of torment.

Me passing on is a small price to pay to set them free.

Gabrielle's got my Chakram, and training from myself and the Amazons. She's proven herself a good leader, a great fighter, and a compassionate woman. And she's a lot purer of a soul, even after everything that's happened to her.

She can keep helping people. Though I think I'll stick around a little whiles and keep an eye on her. Never was ready to say good bye.

Funny thing is, the worse part ain't even the dying. The worse part is I won't get any more dreams with her in them. My dreams have proven time and again that soulmates can transcend time, space, and even the veil between realities. Ain't ready to let go.

Look how shiny it is!

cut for image )

This is my car. Like, my dream car that actually became my car. Here. I have a car. It just appeared in the lot behind the B&B this morning, which is great, because I didn't have to take the bus to work today.

I mean, we're all under some curse because the Evil Queen is evil, and are stuck on this Groundhog Day loop (or were, until the new sheriff came to town - that's so country western) and I'm a waitress with this tacky uniform that is barely even clothing, but I have a car.

Just wanted to share that.



Things will probably get worse, because how could it not, in a cursed town? But I'll just be over here not thinking about it.

I have to say, in all my travels I have not seen a social network site that is localized in such a manner as this. What's with all this dream

So help a girl out who's been gone for the past 14 years, any yoga studio suggestions? Or suggestions in general I guess but right now I'm more focused on finding a yoga studio.

So, there were hundreds of huge, scary, evil rats that chased my friend Terence and me out of this ship, and I went back to Pixie Hollow and brought my version of the scepter to the ceremony where we get the blue pixie dust... Now I totally sound like I'm absolutely insane. But if you were in my Dreams, too, you'd understand.

Anyway, No one's ever made as much Blue Pixie Dust as I made with that scepter. And when I woke up this morning, there was Blue Pixie Dust on my bedside table. I'm not sure what to do with it.

Alright, then. After some seriously rough work zoning boards should totally be open after dark, just saying, the not creatively named Hellsing MMA is going to open and start classes.

I showed up to meet with one of my summer session professors about an assignment and the first words out of his mouth “Are you stoned right now?” No. I’m just exhausted because of everything that’s been going on lately, but thanks for thinking I’m a drug addict. Always nice to know what your professors really think about you.

Seems I moved into my new place just a wee bit too late actually. I missed all the fireworks, now whit am I going to unpack to, yeah? Side note: why is it so bloody hot here? I feel like I am wearing a wool jumper when I'm not. Gaunnae take a look around soon. Get a lay of the land and all that.

Hi network! I'm Ruby and I'm new - not new to the area, but new to this website. In fact, I actually help out with Granny's Bed & Breakfast here in Newport Beach, mere steps from the beach, and consider this my first and official plug for our place! It's cozy and fun could use a bathroom remodel and some more modern furniture but whatever, and we cook everything fresh and in-house. Lately we've been barbecuing in the garden with guests!

So come on by if you're looking for a quiet getaway, or even a romantic getaway with that special someone.

And as for moi (because you're just so curious, right?), I'm from BC Canada and am looking to study Criminal Justice soon, once I save up the money because this student loan thing you guys have going on in the States is killer. Right now I take the gen eds at Coastline Community College. I've been so busy helping with the B&B I haven't explored much, and this county's definitely bigger than my village back home. What cute person or persons want to make recommendations for things to do? Don't all jump at once now!

Working on a movie set is the COOLEST THING EVER! There's catering and all sorts of awesome people running around! I love it so much! It's like, eight thousand times better than working on the set of a music video. And longer, too! They've just added a lot more filming time, considering the lead actor threw a hissy fit and quit left the project. They've recast, and we're pushing forward! I'm learning SO MUCH!

Thank goodness school is over. I don't think I'd be able to do classes AND movie stuff.

My bad feeling was proven right. We were framed for killing the Klingon chancellor in a plot that went to the top of both the Federation and the Empire. After a sham trial Bones and I were sentences to a short life on a harsh mining colony.

Thanks to clever thinking of my crew and unlikely help (never trust a shape-shifter), we were rescued, and saved the President from being assassinated at the peace conference.

We were ordered to return to Earth. To put the Enterprise into mothballs.

I thought they could wait a few weeks so ordered the ship on a new course, but my dreams got pretty impatient. Next thing I knew I was retired, and touring a brand new Enterprise. With a brand new captain.

Growing old. Don't recommend it.

I don't understand this, but there is a movie poster with me on it.

In addition, when I went to research this, apparently a trailer premiered tonight about said movie about me...

I've been willing to concede that this existence might be part of an infinite number of parallel worlds, but I had not considered this outcome. I'm not quite sure how to process this.

So, my dreams are kinda crazy. Not as crazy as everyone else's but it has its share. First, i drug everyone at a party I threw. Then I kidnap Derek and use him to bring back Peter, why, I have no idea.... Then I kinda disappear and end up going to one of the school games and cheer on Stiles. But in the end, I ended up with my douche on and off boyfriend who was a lizard and then turned into a werewolf. It's crazy.

Sometimes you really should listen to all the warnings you see about things. Tonight I decided to ignore them, and sat down to watch the Dirty Dancing reboot...

That is three hours of my life I will never get back. I lost count of how many times I said "What the hell?!"

My dreams seem to have decided to take a rather bittersweet turn with the end of the school year upon us. My father was in the latest one, and he gave me a gift - a spare button for the dress he’d bought me. A bit fancy for me in my everyday life there, but lovely, and I know he had to save up quite a bit to get it for me. Or maybe he got it from the sorceror he was working for that ended up getting him arrested and charged with treason by Uther.

He was doing it for me - to give me a better life. Working with that man on an experiment without realizing they were actually doing magic, but of course that didn’t matter. The guards still executed him after he got of his cell somehow I will never forget the way his body looked in that cart. I wish I could claim that was where I woke up but of course I’m not that fortunate. The man showed up at my house demanding that I bring him his stone or he’ll kill me, and Morgana got sentenced to a night in the dungeons after challenging Uther about what he did to my father. She’s a wonderful friend both there and here. When I told her what Tauren did she left to go and tell the guards his hiding place so that the Knights could apprehend him.

Has anyone ever gone mad or died in their dreams, and then had the same happen while awake? Although if you're dead you can't really answer, can you?

And it's not that I'm going mad but I have a condition, you see, and part of that condition means hearing voices. But if I'm hearing voices then lets just say that's a very bad thing for the health of Orange County.

And so I've had to resort to some extreme type of training to prepare, but mostly I wonder what I'm going to do if this is the other part of my condition, wherein the people of my Order disappear into the Deep Roads to die rather than go mad and turn into a monster.

Today I had my first experience of someone rudely asking me if I was pregnant. I thought this was more a faux pas nowadays, but no, people apparently still do it.

The answer was yes, and may as well say it here too. I'm due in November and can eat again without throwing up so I guess it's obvious I've been going to town on, well, everything I can stuff into my mouth.

Alright, who thought it was cool for freaking starfighters to be strafing parts of the city? This is seriously getting out of hand!

These guys are landing troops, like a full-fucking-scale invasion of all things. And what the heck is with the giant new metal moon in the sky?

Seriously, what the hell? I've had to blow half a dozen of these things out of the sky, and put at least a good thirty troopers of some kind to sleep before they could do major harm. I have collected way too much armor and weaponry at this point.
