I'll have a special menu available in my restaurant tomorrow in honour of Cinco de Mayo. Chilaquiles for breakfast. Pozole for lunch. Tacos for dinner.

Open accidental CB, in Spanish

Agustín? Agustín? I have buñuelos for you. Where did you go?

[a pause]

Where did I go?

Is this like some sort of Facebook? I never had a Facebook before now. I did have Pokémon Go, but I can't seem to get it here. And I know it's nothing like Facebook anyway, but

Hello, I'm Steven. I'm new here. I mean, obviously I'm new or I wouldn't be telling everyone my name, would I?

Peter helped me yesterday when I arrived (Thank you, Peter!) and now I have a new flat and I want to go home all my books are here, and even Gus!

Picture of Gus! )

This is Gus.

Laters, gators!

Atención, cualquier persona en clase de español. El martes, vamos a empezar a aprender sobre la comida. Y la mejor manera de aprender sobre la comida es comerla, por supuesto. Por favor, no coma un gran almuerzo el martes, ¡porque habrá mucha comida en clase!

(Use your dictionaries, and tell Mr Madrigal and myself what I said in a private reply to this post.)


To anyone who is looking after/responsible for any of the kids in Spanish class:

Let Bruno or myself know before Monday if anyone has any food allergies, please!

Good afternoon, people of the station.

For those of you who did not know, I am back. I went home for a while, but I am quite caught up on the station matters that I missed now.

I sat in on Sirius' Spanish class yesterday and would like to say how pleased I am with him and with his teachers. It seems he learnt a lot while I was away.

I've stopped affecting the weather, I'm happy to say. I think I come away with a better understanding for the pressure my sister must have felt. It is not an easy gift to control, you must first be in control of your own emotions.

My own gift has not returned. I don't know what that means. I never thought that I'd miss

It was great that everyone shared their baby names with me! Thank you, everyone. A couple of you guessed why. I'm going to have a baby of my own. I'll probably be back on Rica by the time he's born, but I still wanted to hear your ideas.

Today I've got some more questions, in the interest of cultural exchange.

What's one of your favourite things about the station?
What's something you really liked about where you're originally from?

You don't have to answer both. If you really dislike either the station or where you're from, that's okay, but I'm trying to surround myself with positive ideas today.

Could you also please write to me if you speak any of the languages of the nearby planets fluently and might be willing to come with me on a visit and translate for me?


I fear I must ask for the assistance of some kind soul here.

I am unwell. It is the old illness and I know very well how to manage it, but is there someone willing to receive a short message from me, every few hours, as proof that I am conscious?

It will only be until evening. Perhaps tomorrow if I am not recovered.

Um, you guys, I may need more help on the farm. I think I'm stuck.

[This is entirely Spanish]

I’ve switched. Everything is soaked! I can’t stop raining. How does Pepa do this?? I’m going to drown in my own rain! I’m actually going to flood the apartment and drown. Oh great, now there is thunder. This is madness.

I've done some thinking, and some planning, and here are my thoughts for the classes on technology and getting those who want to be up do date:

First thing is going to be a crash course on the absolute basics and communication. This is something I'll do every other week or as-needed and anyone/everyone can come at once. It'll be the starter course on the things you need to make due every day: the lights and plumbing systems in your apartments, navigation through the station (ie: elevators, opening doors) etc. and on the means of communication: the very basics of your phone and computer

Beyond that, I'm going to kind of sort the classes by starting time. So those who come from earlier points or less technological places will start first and we'll go through advancements as they come. I'll post weekly on the school board in the Wheel 3 foodcourt where we left off the previous week so if you're interested in joining at any point, you'll have an idea when to show up. We'll start with anyone coming in from before electricity was available in personal residences.

Classes will be at 4 pm on Mondays, as long as that doesn't conflict with anything else.

And for those who don't know me beyond my quick introduction at the meeting: My name is Steve Rogers. I was born in 1918, and am a byproduct of an experiment to create better soldiers. Due to the enhancements made to me when I was fighting a war in the 1940s I survived being buried in ice for decades and was revived in 2012 in a society almost as technological as this one.

I know the feeling of waking up in a world that has advanced incredibly from what you know and remember, so I'll do my best to make it easier.

[N.B. Backdated to several hours after the conclusion of this. Unless otherwise marked, all replies are visible to all of them, not just Katarin - that way the guys can interact with each other too if we want.]

Please tell me that all is well!

It is not so bad as I thought. I cannot write, I am speaking to my phone now, but I will not lose my arm, and by Asharai I will heal and not fall to the wound fever.

You must visit me, all of you, even if you avoid one another in your feuding. The pain - the pain is bad, but I must bear it, because I have seen too many half-drowned in taishel-syrup and never the same in the mind after their bodies healed. The medics here are too quick to press for these things! I am not so damaged to be left to that!

Tell me you are reading this and you are not hurt, and nothing worse came of this. You are all blameless to me. It happened because it was seen to happen, and we are all powerless before the magic that underpins the world.

Eleven days (counting today) until the snow is gone. In case anyone needs to know.

Four years today!

[Message visible to everyone who attended magic class today]

There are so many people with wondrous talents here, and I want to be honest with you. I'm not really a healer. At least the healing I do isn't natural. It's just something I can do, a strange gift I have.

Is there a qualified medical doctor here? Preferably a female one, with knowledge of late 21st century medicine or its equivalent.


Time for some exciting reminder messages about all kinds of exciting things.

So... I'm stuck. Six months of trying and I just can't get a hang of shapeshifting. At least not the way my Dad does it. Which sucks. Is there any other shapeshifter out there who can give me some tips?

Muuuuum, help?

There's a snowman in the freezer.

If we haven't spoken yet, let me introduce myself. My name is Bruno Madrigal. I am from Colombia so English is my second language, but we will get by. My wardrobe is also very limited, it does not generally snow there unless my sister is having a moment so I am wondering where I would get some boots and a jacket?

Also, it seems that my friends pet rats have joined me. They have never been caged, so I do not think it wise to start now. I am sure they are disease-free and certainly friendly, so please refrain from stamping on them it would break my if you can, thank you.

I think that is all for now.
