Phone call to Brian

[After the building goes boom.]

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.

Brian, I'm sorry I didn't check in with you when we got back... I'm assuming you made it back, too. I really hope so. It's just, my sister, she wasn't in France but she was in Prohibition-era Chicago and it was [...] bad, for her. I wanted to check in sooner, but I was sticking pretty close to her and, well, you said you have a younger brother, I'm sure you know what it's like. Still, I'm so sorry, and I hope you're better since I know you weren't feeling very well that last day in France. Just let me know, please because oh god I'm babbling like an idiot and I really need to know that you at least are okay and I don't need to worry!

Hey, Sherri. This is Brian. We met the other week - I helped you carry your groceries, and we had coffee. It was really nice, thanks again for that.

I know it's early, but if you're up, I was wondering if you could do me a favor. I was playing catch this weekend and got hit in the face with a baseball. I didn't expect it to leave a mark, but I woke up this morning with a great big shiner. Do you have any skin-colored makeup that might be able to hide the color? It's really dark, and I'd hate to treat patients with this huge bruise on my face.

Jesus Tapdancing Christ! Where the hell have I been? Rhetorical question. I actually plead the fifth regarding my existence for the past however many hours I've been locked in a laboratory with my head up my ass piss drunk gone.

Since everyone is thrilled to see and hear from me once more, I have decided to host a classy get-together for all of my dear friends here. Where and when can be decided at a later date, but for now we can just pick a theme.


- Recapturing Lost Innocence. Remember those days of your dewy and glowing virginity? Neither do I. For this party, you'd arrive with someone who wasn't your current partner. If you don't have a partner then just grab someone off the street, it's fine.

- ABC Party. Stands for Anything But Clothes. I'm not talking nakedness because getting arrested is not on the agenda and, well, some of you really need to keep your clothes on for the sake of my retinas. But obviously creativity comes into play here.

- Rave Party. Blacklights, florescent colors, glowsticks. What's to hate about this?

- Wine and Cheese from Around the World. Nerds only.

That's just something to ponder. For those who don't know who I am, I'm Samuel but no one calls me that anymore so Sam is fine. It's shorter and rolls off the tongue easier. I don't do anything like tarot cards or palm readings or seances; I'm actually a scientist of sorts so I can appreciate mental disturbances. It will help me fit in really well around here. You may have also seen me around at various benefits and other charity events - I believe in giving back to the community, and I have a few causes I am strongly devoted to but I don't like to make a big deal out of it. Anyway, I'm sure I'll be seeing you all around at some point. Try not to burn the building down - those stairs can be tricky to navigate when your pants are on fire.

[After catching up on the building dramatics via the forums]

It does not concern me, what anyone thinks they are or who they believe they turn into when moon mother is full and heavy in the sky. I have a spear and many knives, and I do not mind using them if anyone turns their anger on me. There is talk of powers also, yes? I can open all of your doors if I wish it. I recommend staying away from mine.

I much prefer bluntness to false, friendly introductions. I do not want to sleep with your women, and I do not want to steal your things. Your politics and dramas, they do not concern me. If I play my music too loudly, I recommend the purchase of ear plugs.

[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

Ella said we should stop by her shop sometime, and it might be kind of nice to escape the building for a while right now, considering. What day would be good for you?

Hi, Ella. Joss said you wanted to talk to me about the fables?

{ Posted early Saturday afternoon }

A little internet forum, isn't this cute? I wonder if this is the kind of thing my assistant was telling me about - lol cats or something. Are we supposed to type normally, or badly here?

Hello, everybody. My name is Brian - I just moved in on the third floor yesterday. These apartments are really nice here. I wonder why the rent is so reasonable. Do we have cockroaches?

Is this where I talk about myself? I'm a dentist - been practicing for about 15 years now. I tend to work long hours, and I get up pretty early, so to the people on the third floor - don't be surprised if you hear me coming and going at weird hours. I'm on call most weekends for dental emergencies. Which reminds me - if anybody has a tooth problem, please don't hesitate to contact me. I promise I'm nothing like that guy from Little Shop of Horrors.

That's about it for me. I look forward to meeting all of you.

- Brian

[After finding this]

Thank you for the cookies, but there really is no reason for you to apologize to me. Dracula and I are not the same.

My name is Vlad. I apologize for what the Count said to you.

[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.

Voice Post

(As a direct result of this.)

[Mumbling] I cannot believe I am actually doing this...

[Louder] Um, excuse me? P3? [Audibly deep breath] How's the sparkling going?

[Clicks off very quickly]


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.

I'm so sorry for ever thinking you were exaggerating the craziness. Please respond, or call, or come over, anything... just let me know you're okay.

Hello, everyone! My name is Sherri Salvage, I moved in today. I saw a few people in the halls and the lobby, but I'm afraid I didn't take the time to stop and learn any names. It's been a long day and I'm about to hit the sack, but I thought I'd post a quick hello.

I'm Joss's older sister, I have a B.A. in English, and I'm about a semester away from having a master's in library science. I'll be looking around for a job that relates at least a little to that, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all soon!
