So, I guess this is a thing, right?

Hi everyone. Peter Parker here, and since a trusted friend told me secret identities aren't a thing, I should let you know I am your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.

Uh... I can't wait to meet all of you!

Is anyone any good at making clothes? Na'vi-sized clothes.

I can't hear anything. Lyla tells me that there are sounds to be heard around me, but I haven't been able to hear them for the past 28 minutes. I don't know if this is related to the other things going on or not, but I thought people should know in case it is.

Good evening.

I appear to be resident here once again. I recall that it is customary to announce your presence to the whole class.

Consider that done.

Regards,
Fitzwilliam Darcy

Rhys is gone. I need a few days. Maybe longer. Thank you.

[OOC: She will have informed her family in person before this and probably won't respond directly - that doesn't mean she won't read it.]

I am not amused.

Does anyone have any tips on shaving, and walking around with a perpetual boner? I ask for a friend.

As much as I hate to, Down Home Roots will have to close. I don't know when, or if, I'll be able to reopen.

If anyone wants to I don't know what I'm goi

Since this is my first Thanksgiving having a restaurant on the station, I'm going to make it big. I'm cooking Turkey three different ways, and have all the traditional sides: Mashed potatoes, Stuffing, Macaroni and Cheese, Deviled Eggs, Green Bean casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole... And deserts.

But if you can think of anything that I'm leaving out let me know and I'll add it.

Also if anyone is interested I need help with chopping, stirring and checking to make sure things don't burn, as payment you'll get to be the first to taste things, and get to lick spoons and bowls.

Filtered from Higgs

I don't know what I hope to accomplish with this

This is a plea to the people that are helping Higgs. We don't know who you are, not all of you, not yet, but we will find you out.

The man you're helping is not who he making himself out to be. Likely your hardships are because of him. He's like a parasite, an entire swarm of locusts. He is low enough that he attacked a child, Richie is a lovable thirteen year old boy, with a smartmouth, but that doesn't make him deserving of anything that Higgs did to him.

Now you guys haven't done anything to hurt anyone yet. And I can't speak for everyone, but I know right now I would still help you however I could. But the moment you cross that line... That's it.

I will tell you now, I was hunted in my world for being a maneater. A literal maneater. And there isn't a single person on this station that I would not kill for. And I'd make sure you'd feel every inch of your death. I've hunted for my food all my life. Hunting you down because you hurt someone I love would be no hardship.

Please consider stepping away from Higgs. Join us in fighting him. You will have food, you will have shelter, you will have everything you need. Can Higgs actually promise you that, without them being empty words and broken promises? As a sign of good faith I will pack ten bags of food, breads, milk, cheeses, meats, fresh fruit, fresh veggies... As a taste of what we can GIVE you, because you'll find we've cleared out everything in the shops, because you wont TAKE from us.

Edit: If you're afraid to stand against Higgs, afraid of what he might do to you, we can offer you safe haven. I can insure you will not be interrogated, or threatened if you come to us. You can keep your secrets if that's what you want to do, all I ask is you don't bite the hand that's feeding you. Don't stab us in the back.

Filtered away from Higgs and the minions they know of.

When we fought together three years ago, we thought we'd be away from the fear The Man reaped down upon us. Now we have a new foe. And we need every man woman and child to fight together again, if we're going to bring an end to this one.

We've lost faces we knew, since then, but gained new ones. Some I'd be very proud to call friend, and even family.

We need to group up, so we can watch each other's backs. There is a hotel in wheel one, close to the one Loki and his family has claimed, that will fit us all comfortably, without cramming us in like sardines in a can. There are board rooms, and other rooms we can use as battle rooms.

Please join me in this, once Higgs is taken care of we can move back to the comfort of our homes. But if this sleazeball is willing to attack one kid, then we know he doesn't have a line that he wont cross.

I'm happy to announce that a work of love, my restaurant, is finally finished. She's on wheel one, since that's the second most occupied wheel, and it's closer to the farm. It's called 'Down Home Roots'. I cook a little bit of everything, if you have a comfort food that I don't know how to cook, I will try my damnedest to learn how to make it just like you remember.

It is located here [location].

Keeping Busy

Hi everyone,

In order to keep my mind active I've picked up a few different things but variety is key;
Katherine mentioned that she gave flight lessons using some of the SVs in the hanger. I've found a few that look similar enough to share some tips on.

In addition, I was wondering if some of the station residents who had been here for a while would mind meeting up for a quick chat? I've got some questions about a few things.
Specifically why are we here? Why did we get taken off to the island and split up with different people? Who is this girl?

Just to name a few. I'm not angry, I'm just looking for some answers to stave off the crazy.

Cheers

Annie.

Island Network

This place has certainly changed. I cannot say I have missed it.

Oh, if you sent your partner through the portal, it shuts after a short while.

Hi all,

I would like to invite everyone for a little gathering in the Halls of Asgard this Friday. Maryanne has so kindly offered to help our kitchen prepare the food. Which means it is going to be amazing.

There will be a buffet and as much drink as you can imagine (both alcoholic and non alcoholic). We have a band for entertainment but if anyone else wants to play a few songs, there will be instruments there for people to use. I certainly plan on playing a few songs. If someone would like to team up for a duet, I would love it.

I am also sure if you can coax a member of my family into a tour around the palace if you wish one.

Please let me know of any dietary requirements. To make it clear, everyone is welcome (yes, that includes you, Brenna).

Katherine

So, I've been enjoying having my grown children around me. They're cooks, and musicians. The three that have the X-gene have never known the prejudice that I did, and actually love their mutations. And it's all because of this place. Because of you guys. Because we come together in times of darkness.

So in celebration of each and every one of you, Clan Barton would like to have a concert. We'll take requests, and depending on how many we get will depend on the date. We'll take on everything from ACDC to ZZ Top, and everything in between.

We love you guys, each and every one of you.

I can't be the only one that's getting sick of all of this bloody snow. We're on a space station. There has to be some sort of way of getting all of this seemingly random bollocks to stop.

I have a few announcements as the holidays get close!

First, I'll be doing two special classes. One will be cookie decorating, the other for a holiday meal. Holiday meal will be similar to Thanksgiving was; we'll make some sides that can be reheated and I'll explain how to prepare a roast day-of. That class is adults, or 13+ if you have an adult come with you. Cookies will be kids encouraged (but certainly not necessary). I'll have the cookies pre-baked but show you how to make them too so you can do more later if you want, the focus will be mostly on decorating. There will be lots of different icings and chocolate and candies to decorate with and you'll go home with plenty of cookies so you can leave some out for Santa and still have a bunch to share. Since the holiday meal class will take a little longer, that one will be on Sunday the 22nd, cookies will be Monday the 24th. Coffee and hot cocoa will flow at both.

Next, the tradition hasn't been started here yet, but when I came from we always did something called Christmas for Strays and I'm going to host it because no one should be alone on Christmas unless they want to be. Basically, anyone who doesn't have a place to be or people to be with on Christmas (or anyone who just wants to come, wants to meet new folks, or just doesn't have the energy to put together a Christmas meal), can meet me in the food court at any point in the day. I'll be there starting at 5am, with cinnamon rolls and hot drinks. A full breakfast will be ready for 9. Through the afternoon there will be snacks and small bites, a fire, some games, and holiday movies. Big dinner will be at 4, and dessert at 6. More festivities in to the evening, then cocktails, mulled zap apple cider, or hot cocoa at 9, when we put on Die Hard. Anyone is welcome, and you can come and go as you please, you don't to stay all day. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, feel free to drop by, and if you do celebrate something else and want to do something similar for your holiday, we can figure that out too. Only thing you have to do is bring one present to exchange, and one bit of food to share. It doesn't have to be homemade if you don't want it to be, just something you like and want to share.

Filtered Away from Adults
There will be one more class for kids only! If anyone wants to make something to eat for anyone but don't want them to find out about it in the other classes, we'll meet on Saturday the 21st and I can help you make whatever you like and we'll wrap it up before you go home. The only grown ups will be me, Darcy, Mary Ellen, and maybe Stevie, and they'll be sworn to secrecy so you can make things for anyone else and they won't find out.

Right... so, the sweets are hexed then. Wonderful. I'm not complaining but this definitely makes the top 5 list of weird ways I've woken up.

It's John Constantine, by the way, believe it or not.
