Bonjour. Je suis désolé, mais... non, en anglais. I am sorry but I have broken a table in the food court. I did not mean to, I simply leaned on it too much and one of the legs has snapped in two.

And I have broken the chair I was attempting to sit on at the time.

I have slept better this past week than I have in very many years, thanks to the kashapti of this station. I feel ready to ask if anyone might want to learn Kordalan, the language of my people? It seems a good thing to share with anyone who is willing.

Those of you who said to me that you would stand at my side if a doorway opens - as things are you would be in danger if you were there without a word of Kordalan and you were separated from me, and that happens easily on a battlefield, or even at the encampments these days. I would give you uniforms for the Avtel Letyara'i but that might do more harm than good if you are clearly not Kordalan.

That is not the main reason, though. I would like to teach anyone who wants to learn. Perhaps someday I will be able to take you to Kordala at peace.

Ce n'est pas drôle. Je veux revenir à la normale maintenant.

Pancake Day yesssssss

Is it acceptable to go round everywhere here that makes food and get pancakes in each one? I feel like it is, you know. I reckon that's an aces plan.

I've already been running today so this ain't gonna be a problem at all.

Would anyone be interested in another round of speed dating? It is very close to Valentine's day, but I think everyone should have at least a shot at the possibility of finding love.

Jan. 10th, 2022


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.

Dec. 26th, 2021


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 is no subtle way to put this. My daughter has been placed in a French jail. Now the Drengr in me wants to storm this jail, and break her out. But I'm willing to listen to reason and plans of others.

I apologise for the delay in posting, but as you can surely imagine, it has been a difficult time. However, I did want to offer an introduction to the world you will find through the door.

A few words of caution first.

Ladies, please do not go without an escort, or a weapon that you are not afraid to use.

There are many pickpockets about, so be wary and do not flaunt any wealth unless you seek trouble.

We are in the midst of a cholera epidemic. I believe there is now a vaccine, and effective treatment available. I will leave the medical staff to advise on this point, but do not drink the water through the door. It is contaminated. (Can we do anything about this without changing the course of history? Educate?)

I have spoken to a number of you about formulating a plan to help the people of Paris following the recent uprising, and I also want to offer my sincere thanks to those of you who have already offered, or are actively helping.

The building you first enter was a stronghold of the Revolution, and it is important that it is rebuilt as a symbol of resistance. The blood has been cleaned, and some volunteers are working on clearing the rubble. We need to replace the ceiling of the first floor. I would like to hire some locals to help with this, and pay them accordingly for their labour. Offering honest work is better than charity. Anyone willing to act as site foreman for this? I am happy to act as translator if it is the only issue.

When the people rise again, and they will, they will need better weapons. We cannot give them anything not yet invented, but we can help stockpile weapons and ammunition of the time that the common man cannot necessarily afford. They will also need field medical kits.

Hungry people have no fight in them. When we can reopen the Musain, can we find a way to feed people without it becoming a riot? I'm open to suggestions. On all these points.

I will be staying in Paris, but I will remain in contact. I can also find apartments for anyone else who wishes to stay.

I went through the portal. The grief and loss here is overwhelming. These poor people. I can understand their anger only too well.

I am new here. When you see misery like this in a world not your own, do you interfere?

[Coffee shop owner Bucky]

I might stay here for a few days. It feels familiar here.

We've got a new door, people. It's in the food court, in one of the empty diners. The sign says it's going to Paris, France and the dates are June 7th to July 3rd in 1832. The door says "Musain" on it.

[Photo of the door and sign]

I didn't go through because I didn't think Paris, France in 1832 would be all that okay about a Na'vi showing up, but Laura went through to check where it ends up. Wherever "Musain" was, it's been blown up, and pretty recently, and there's people milling about outside.

Enjolras? Adam, Belle? Is this your door?

Greetings, fellow station dwellers.

I am not certain that what I have to say requires such a formal declaration, but I feel that to continue in such an evasive and abashed manner about these things would be greatly disrespectful to those who courageously fought against injustice and inequality. And if you can't say it during a whole month of pride, then you risk staying silent forever.

I am a homosexual.

What the shit, again?

So, since it seems like more and more kids are coming all the time, and more and more kids are reaching school age, I've been doing some organizing for the school.

We decided to split everything in to 4 basic groups so that there aren't lots of classes with only one or two kids per group. It'll be a bit more like one-room schoolhouses than modern education for those familiar with the systems from Earth.
Littles (under 5)
Basics (5-8)
Formal (9-16 or anyone who didn't have a formal education where they're from and wants one)
Continuing (add-on classes for anyone)

I've gotten together a few extra classrooms so there will be regular places for the two younger groups and one for each of the older ones, though I know some of the teachers for the older groups have their own spaces too (and some need to take place outside of classrooms) so those ones can move around as needed.

Obviously, this is a massive group effort and we can tailor it as-needed so if anyone has anymore suggestions for classes they'd like or feel like they need or things they want to teach, just let me know and we can figure it out.

We can start Monday after next to let all the new kids get settled first.

Bill said I should tell everyone I'm a kid so hi, I'm a kid.

Dan suggests I have to ask you all what music do you like?

I’m sure the last thing I’ve known was Bellini. You have much to teach me.

Is there anyone here who can help me improve my English?

I would like to concentrate mainly on speech and listening, because that is where I encounter the most difficulties.

Oct. 19th, 2019


Thank you to all who assisted me upon my arrival. I am forever in your debt.

To everyone else, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Enjolras, I am a scholar and a printmaker from Paris. My English is primarily theoretical, not conversational, so your patience with me is appreciated.

I hope to make myself useful. I am not a person who is idle.
