This is a really good door. So much wildlife that I've seen in holos or vids in museums, or just as pictures in books. I took far too many photos of plants. And other animals but I liked these ones.

If you have children, what are their names?

If you don't have children, what would you name them if you did?

You can say why if you want, but you don't have to. I'm curious what people do in other places.

Purim starts tomorrow.  There are many fun traditions for this holiday.  Some of you may remember Mr. Gatsby's Purim parties on the island. 

I will be celebrating the smaller traditions with my family.  One of which is mishloach manot, the giving of gifts of food. Another custom is for children  (and adults if the choose) to wear costumes.  

Would anyone like a gift basket of food?   My daughters will deliver them in costumes tomorrow.  Sort of like a reverse trick-or-treat.

Will you join us for Purim Seudah?

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

It has come to my attention, that two people were shot... Because we are afraid of each other. Even if that wasn't the reason, I feel it is long past time for a "town-hall" meeting. It has been years, enough years that I don't think, besides a handful, that any of you attended the last one we had.

I would like to see every single one of you in attendance, young and old, men, women, children, and in between. There is a large amphitheater classroom in the University that will seat everyone, and then some, comfortably.

We do not need to be afraid of each other here, because I don't doubt there will come a time that we well need each other, again. I'm not being dramatic, but I'm talking life and death need, not just because one or the other has a useful skill that would make life easier.

So please, help me end this, and bring us all together again.

Edit: There will be drinks and snacks.

¡Hola! Soy Isabela, la sobrina de Bruno. ¿A alguien le gustaría unas flores fuera de su casa? Esta estación necesita un poco más de decoración.

There's a snowman in the freezer.

[Everyone is sent a link to this - it's web page style, more static than the regular network posts]

In the village of Privkat, before the dark times, the elders would teach the young people about magic. They learned how to shape it, and how to use it. By the time I arrived there, the practice had stopped. The magic we learnt was in secret, and was limited, and then there was none at all. I missed this part of learning. I see that there are many here with many types of magic.

This is what I propose. Once every seven days, on your Sunday for felicity, at [big open space on the station] we will gather and at least one among our number will tell the others about their magic. We will sit in a great circle and listen, as we would in Privkat.

Who is willing to take a turn? You do not have to be an elder, and it does not matter if nobody else here has the same talents that you do. You can demonstrate something practical and teach it to others who can learn, or you can tell us about the origins of your magic and how it works, or tell us about the history of your people and what magic has meant to them.

Everyone is welcome to join us and to listen, so long as they are respectful of others.

If you would like to speak more than once, and teach us different things, you can. If you would like a regular time to teach, you can have that. If you are interested, please tell me your name and each topic you would like to share with us, and I will organise the meetings accordingly.

The portal closes today. I have returned willingly to the station. We have achieved everything I hoped and more.

Thank you, truly, to all of you. I am not very skilled at articulating my emotions, but I will never forget what you have done.

If anyone would care to join me for a drink later, I’ll be at Bryn’s from around 8pm.

This place has the worst shocking timing, do you know that? Shocking hell

I would really like to get incredibly shocking drunk.

As you must know, once Brenna (and any other prisoners) are released from custody, Bryn is rounding up a group to take the police by force. I believe there is also a man to be held accountable for his actions.

I know the authorities of this time, and they will not take this lightly. Although they will clearly know their assailants are not Parisians, they will want to make a show of force, and from past experience I believe this will be military action against the abaisse.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their help so far, and also to say that anyone who wishes to avoid conflict may leave this place safely now. What you have done for my people will not be forgotten.

I told Bryn that I did not wish for the people here to suffer. I have since remembered that they are already suffering. I have been so insistent that the people rise on their own, that I failed to see the wonderful opportunity presented by the door. They can rise for themselves, but it need not be alone.

Whoever of you will stay and fight back with me, it would be my absolute honour to stand with you.

There's gonna be a spiderman and spiderish-woman race. It'll be educational. And fun to watch. I haven't picked a date yet.

There's also gonna be an eighties movie night. Movies like ET, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Aliens, Gremlins, Die Hard, Terminator, Predator. We don't have time for all of them in one night, so let me know which ones you want to see. And if you want it on Friday or Saturday. I'm asking everyone. 'Cause everyone can come.

Losers v.2

We're gonna get time off school to watch the race and we have to come up with an obstacle course.

Does it mean anything bad or ominous here when a group of new people show up?

My other self has told me to post this here.

There is an altar for Dia de los Muertos beside the wall of names if anyone wishes to leave offerings for anyone they would like to remember. Miguel and Harri and I have made pan de muerto and calaveras in case you don't know what to put on the altar.

Harri says I need to let people know that calaveras are sugar skulls, and that pan de muerto is very tasty. And that you need to be careful because there are candles. And that the tequila smells gross, but we have told her that it is only for adults, so that's okay. And she took this photo )

Question. Are there any marigolds I can have?

Filtered to his other self
Help me make an altar. You're bound to have people you want to put on it, so we might as well have one between us.

I'm going to be making a special Thanksgiving meal on Monday in the food court. Turkey, stuffing, vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, pies. It'll be a real feast. Everyone is welcome. I'll make up some to go packages for those that would rather eat at home.
