Individually Locked

Locked to 1106

I hope you liked what was in the box I left outside your door. ((OOC: Bam!)) I'm [...] sorry there are so many. O_O I tend to bake when I'm freaked out or otherwise avoiding my fucked up life Do you have a minute?

Locked to 605

I figured out who you were through good old fashioned forum stalking. My name is Gabrielle. I think we [...] met? the night of the full moon. But um I just ugh, this is weird wanted to see how you were doing?

Locked to 1004

I'm sorry, I figured out your room number via forum stalking as well. I seem to be doing that a lot lately. I'm Gabrielle. I don't think we've been introduced, per se. But I was wondering if everything was okay after she the witch Glinda left?

Public from D2A

Now, I have always considered myself to be quite the generous man, and because of that, I have taken some of my very own time to compile this list for everyone in here. You see, I'm worried about all of you. The state of your mental health, in particular.

I have taken the liberty of contacting several psychologists and psychiatrists in the city and have explained to them the very unique situation all of you seem to be experiencing. After explaining to them how concerned I was about all of you, they have agreed to stop by later this week to check on everyone.

So. If you hear a knock at your door and someone claiming to be a psychiatrist or psychologist answers, do not fear. They are just there to help you!

No need to thank me. All of you getting better and finding your sanity once more is thanks enough.

I've called and canceled the visits I've arranged. I'm sorry that that people here see an offer of help as something to be angry about.

Go on about your lives.

public from D2A, night of the fail!moon

....So, does someone care to remind me of what was 'supposed' to happen on these full moons? I thought there was going to be chaos and people changing into...

Fairy tales.

Well. Hate to disappoint, but I'm still me, you all seem to be you, so first thing tomorrow morning, I'll be calling the local funny farm to haul the lot of you away.

For your own protection. Of course.


Phone Call To Bran.

I’d go through all the old forum posts and do the er, usual but the number of new people in the building is a bit daunting. Welcome to the building regardless – can you move out? Please? Before you’re sent through time and lied to and hurt and kidnapped by a mob and you find out you’re a fictional character too?

Can someone explain why people keep moving in here? Really, when no one knew it made sense. But surely you all know of the crazy here…before you come in, right?

Also, did everyone make it back alright from…wherever? I was […] really ill those last few days and might have missed if anyone came by. While in France. Apparently some other people were sent to different times? I hate it here, I hate it here.

Also I was wrong about Bran, you can’t trust him, he’s a liar a really bad one and he I can’t even say that filtering from him, I’m so Ella was right

Oh. And I’m Lotte. Sorry, I didn’t think of that.

Public: 105

Hello there! I've been meaning to do this since yesterday but I really wanted to get everything unpacked and settled before turning on the computer the piano is distraction enough without adding the internet

My name is Anthony I just moved into the building. Before this I lived in California and before that I was born and raised in London. I really look forward to meeting everyone and getting more familiar with New York City. Speaking of which, could anyone point the way to a good piano tuner? If anyone could help me out I would be incredibly grateful. Or if you just want to talk/hang out I'm down at #105.

Oh, and whoever left those cookies in the lobby: thank you very much! I love the chocolate ones.

Jun. 18th, 2010


I'm not... feeling too hot. And I've got a headache that just. Ugh. Comes and goes. I've already taken stuff for it. Anyone know something else that could help? I'm about ready to cry from this.


Locked to 1106

[After this]

I heard you talked to James?

[public: did someone mention crazy? -- someone is playing the piano in room 201...]

Ginger ale was in fact invented by a doctor. However, I'm fairly certain that more than one party was involved in the act of its purloining; thus, let us then say that it was naively conspired. Purloined!? Why, yes. All ideas are stolen from the realm of the-not-yet-known. Inevitably, each idea is thrown into a mess of plenty of ideas, of which is called reality. Where it is then evidently carbonated and shuffled with ginger, madagascan vanilla, star anise, and other like spices which are subtle, yet bring out the poignant monologue of the stomach easing ginger ale blend.

What I mean to say, is that mostly anything created by doctors is in fact safe, drinkable, and often edible. For the respect of the brain-children of science, I indulge in medicine. Why don't you? I have a prescription. There's a cold going around. Does anyone have a cold? The sniffles? The wiffles? Feeling unlike yourself? I can help. I'm very helpful and thoughtful. My moon is in Pisces.

nOW FOR MY NEXt trick, I'll need a volunteer--don't fret folks!

... The last one only spent two weeks in the ICU ...

sHOULD i SEE you and feel you may be needing some yourself, I'll do well to suggest for your sake. My observation skills are as astute, impeccable, and infallible as Galileo. I will be able to tell if you have an ailment requiring cough medicine. Of course, my opinion and kindness are all given through the abundance and goodness of my heart, whereas that wretched doctor would tell the world that HE invented ginger ale ALONE and by HIMSELF! For this my face is sad for you.

[Posted Tuesday morning - I'm slow]

Fuck this building, I don't even know why I'm doing this If it wasn't for Lotte

I'm not getting locked up in the basement, so don't try it

Why the hell did I even come here in the first place

I know this is a rather hectic time, considering you've decided to set yourselves back a couple hundred years what's been going on lately, but I feel this is as good a time as any to to say this.

You're all aware that one of the fables within the building is the Phantom of the Opera, also known as Erik. I can't and won't deny that he is dangerous, and should be avoided at all costs during the full moon. Considering the audio posts used during the last one, some of you are likely aware that Erik's voice came from my apartment number.

So yes, he is my fable counterpart or whatever the hell you call it. It's come to my attention that Christine made a post during that night, however, claiming that Erik and I are the same. As I hope everyone realizes, we aren't our fables, and I'm certainly not him. I plan on doing my best to keep him away from people during subsequent full moons, but I thought I should say this publicly and let everyone know that Christine was misinformed. Not that I need to justify myself to you people None of you are in any position to judge

If any of you fucking show up at my door after this, it'll be the last thing you ever do

Locked to 1206

Well, everyone knows I'm just waiting for someone to say something This is fucking unbelievable

I heard the message Christine left me, and I think she believes I'm exactly like Erik Hi.


I just wanted to make sure you were alright. Christine seemed pretty upset on the forums, and... well, I'm pretty sure there's no point in trying to keep my fable a secret anymore.

[There's a bit of silence before her voice begins. It's clearly tired, though she tries to hide her exhaustion with a wry tone.]

To all the people who are still awake - there's probably like two of you - let's play a game.

[She takes a long pause, trying to collect her thoughts.]

Let's hear what tonight has taught us all. If you learned anything, put it here. [She laughs, the sound tapering out into a whisper.] Make it good.

May. 27th, 2010



[ Loud, serious. ]



I gather we are all locked up again? So soon... does this place do nothing else? All the cursed palaces in the tales I know seem to repeat themselves, though, so I suppose it's to be expected. All in all, I preferred being trapped with company to being trapped without it.

Would anyone happen to have a version of [a pause as she looks at the title again to make sure she's correct. She sounds a bit disgusted when she continues,] Arabian Nights that doesn't have parts cut out? I need to [...] check it, and see if they've ruined it all as much as they've ruined the translation I have.


From #1206

[The rustling of skirts as she settles in front of it and then hysterical pleading] 

Please? Somebody - anybody  - Erik, please, let me out - please, please, please let me out - where's Meg? She didn't do anything - please, please, Erik, let me out - unlock the doors, please. Let me explain, please.

Did you get back alright?

I set things up with my friend. I didn't tell her anything except your name, but Ella and Sherri know it so except about the letter. She seemed to think there'd be an issue with you knowing that it wasn't really from Christine and thus Erik would know.

And I talked to Ella? She believes it now I think and she's going to leave it alone. Which is good news, I think?

[After delivering this and during this conversation]

Subject: You've Got Mail

I left it downstairs. The letter is unsealed, so you can see it and decide if it works. There's time to fix it if won't do. I rewrote it eight times and I think that was worse than the first


My friend has gone crazy and I think Can I bother you with a question, as well? You don't have to answer but I'm scared that Ella will do some


Left on top of the mail-boxes this morning

[An envelope and a small brown bag, unsealed. The letter is adressed to Erik and the bag has 'Behind the Mask' written on it. The script is neat and in black ink.]

Hello, neighbors. I'm Serena St. James and I've just moved in. I've met some of you in passing, but thought a more thorough introduction would not go amiss. I'm a dancer and stage actress by profession, and am currently performing as a chorus member in the new musical The Bacchae. It's off-broadway for the moment, but I promise you that it's still great. If you're at all a theater fan, let me know and I'll hook you up with discount tickets.

Other things to know about me: I'm a night owl, and my door is always open. The latter is literally true at the moment, since I'm painting up a storm in here (sorry about the fumes, guys!) Do stop by and say hello if you can.

Subject: None

I was told you wanted to talk.
