So... uh, the date is all wrong. And the contract list looks very different.

Where is my stuff?

(Sookie has her phone's camera on a black spaceship in the hanger, near her family's ship. As she talks, she walks around it, showing it from different angles.

This is awesome.  It's mine.  It speaks to me in a way that's hard to explain and I speak to it too, yeah, again that's hard to explain.  Does anyone want to take a ride in it?  Kelan?  Uncle Jake?  Sarah?  It's bigger on the inside, waaay bigger.   It has its own jumpgate generator too, so we can go far, very fast.

Good morning.

Let me thank the gentlemen who assisted me on the day of my arrival for your kindness. I wish I could say that my mind is less troubled on this day than it was on that that one, but unfortunately, I cannot. I have spent my time since then with your history books.

They are wrong. Wrong in many particulars, from the great to the small. Pretannica is 'Britain' and Gaul is 'France' and the wars are protracted or shifted or simply not as they should be. The dates are wrong, all across the past millennium. Places are wrongly named, and many august personages either are not mentioned or are said to hold the wrong offices. On a more personal note, the great city of Calleva, near which my family has its estate, in your books appears to have disappeared when the Romans did.

Further, I cannot find a single mention of telekinetics.

The similarities, however, are numerous and uncanny enough that I cannot simply say that I must be reading about some other planet, even as I learn the nature of this place.

What would you make of this?

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.

I would like to ask if anyone has any of the following items that they would allow me to borrow or use, or if they know where I might find them. It is all for my education or my nephew's.

1. A copy of 'Elementary Potioneering' by E.M. Katril.
2. A magical telescope. Other types of telescope will not be suitable.
3. A very large roll of parchment, of the sort you could draw maps and charts on.
4. Plant pots of assorted sizes.
5. A copy of 'The Complete Book of Household Charms'.
6. Blank copybooks.

Thank you.

[Private to Darcy]

Dear Mr Darcy,

I do hope this is not a bothersome request, but I was advised recently that you are very competent in Latin. I am trying to improve mine, because I will have to sit an examination at home, but it is proving difficult without anyone to note the errors. Would you mind looking over a translation for me? It is from Valen's fourth book - the one with the Carthaginian wizards and the elephants.

Yours sincerely,
A.C. Black

Hello everyone,

For those of you I haven't met, I'm Hannah Hale. I arrived here yesterday, and I've been told some very remarkable things about this place. It's utterly vast, and I think it would be very easy to get lost and never see anyone. I was told that this was an appropriate place to make introductions. I'm here with my seven children. It's just us. Their father died in the war. Most of them seem to like it here very much, not least because of the size of our living space!

I should also mention that if you have back trouble, or other persistent aches and pains, I'd be happy to treat them. I'm very good at it, and I can guarantee you will notice a difference.

[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.

Did anyone else see the aurora storm on the planet last night? Up close to the north pole (or top pole, or whatever we want to call it). It must have lasted at least 90 minutes, and it covered quite a large part of the upper northern/top hemisphere in comparison to what the aurora usually reaches.

I took pictures.
[Fake cut to four photographs and one looping video that shows the blue/purple/red aurora covering parts of the gas giant below them. One of the photographs shows an impact event, which Tommy has highlighted and labelled. The video shows why he called it a storm, since part of the aurora appears to be starting to spin, like a weather system back on Earth]

This is new. And I don't say that often. Does anyone know which company made these phones? If they haven't made millions yet, they're going to. And that is before I think about the fact that this is an actual space station like something out of a sci-fi show.

Hi. I'm James. James Valerius Kushim. Is it true that strange things happen here, and people might believe anything, no matter how unusual?

It's all my own fault, really. I did insist on going on and on about the strange happenings on the station. I was tempting fate, and how fate laughs at me now.

I hate being a girl, I've decided.

And my magelight isn't working properly and the last time that happened was because of him and Rawm used one of my keyboards as a chew toy and my hands are bad and I'm just going to stop complaining now or I might not stop.

Two things. One is kind of obvious (and annoying), and the other is that I have no idea what the electricity is saying any more. And it bit me.

Hey... Everyone.. I'm Reeve Adler.. Most of you may know my mom and dad, Scarlet and Blank Adler?

If you do, then you know me as a baby? Well... I'm not anymore, and I'm not sure why, but I'm from twenty years in the future now. Please, don't ask me your any of your futures.

I can't, and/or won't tell it to you, mostly because our futures may not be the same? ... Sorry, I've been told that I: "have my mother's beauty, and my father's awkward." Anyway! I'm happy to be here!

Okay, so, I know a load of really weird shit is going on, but this is really fucking cool. I hope this sticks. Eywa, make it stick. Rutxe

If anyone was in the mall near the food court earlier, I'm really sorry but my magelight's been doing really weird stuff recently and it just appeared and then got stupidly bright earlier.

Has anyone seen Rawm? He ran off earlier today and hasn't come back, and I'm worried starting to get sore worried.

For anyone who hasn't met Rawm, you'd know him if you saw him. He's got electricity all over. And he ignores gravity sometimes so he might be on the walls or the ceiling.

With the people everything that's gone on, we'll need to figure out some things with the school.

Darcy Banner was in charge really, she did the scheduling and helped set up new classes, as well as helping teach the 5-8-year-olds with Clint, a computer class for the older kids, and the adult technology 101 class. Obviously one person wouldn't have to do all of it, we could split up the responsibilities, but we'll need people to take over.

I can cover the outdoor scouts-type group that Hemmingway ran, as long as everyone is alright with that. I can't say I lived nearly the life that he did, but I was taught a good bit growing up and my daughter was in the group in the future so I saw some parts. Can anyone involved let me know who was there and things you've done or want to do?
