[Jack R, Joey A]

[Jack R.]

Dr. Roman,

I was informed that I have been returned to your care. I hope you are well and that this is an acceptable transfer. I understand if it is not, and will obviously have no objections if you wish to find another doctor (or doctors) to assume my case instead.

[...] I'm currently residing at [Facility name], but I believe I will now attempt to plan to stay somewhere else. I will update you if I am able to arrange something. If not, I suppose I will simply stay here. I should know in the relatively near future.

Thank you,
Iris Morgenstern (formerly Russell) [There's a waver in the middle of "Russell", but she simply finishes writing and moves on.]

[Joey A.]

[...] Hello, Joey. [...] I realize it has been quite a while since we last spoke, and that things have likely changed since then. However, I find that I am considering leaving the medical facility where I am currently a resident. I am quite certain that after some thought, you have reconsidered your previous offer, but I [...] just wanted to be sure.

[Pen on page.] Regardless of your decision, I hope you and your family are doing well. I obviously will not ask you to relay any well-wishes, but I do hope everyone has managed the sandstorm without too much difficulty.

Iris M.

[A pen-rest of ink before the words start. The writing is loose and angles down toward the bottom of the page in mostly parallel lines.]

What do desperate doctors turn to when they are trapped and the broken in their care cry and rage in fear at the dark? Even good doctors, with limited patients, are still human, and frightened themselves. You can see it in their eyes.

I wonder what it is like elsewhere.

At least it is quiet now, other than the sand and the wind hitting the windows.

Are you holding up?

[Locked to Chetan]

Are you and yours okay out there?


The sand is becoming problematic.

I may have a problem.

Can I talk to you when you have a moment?

I've been invited to speak at a conference.

I don't do public speaking. I simply don't. But if I refuse, it's going to reflect poorly upon me.

There is not enough anxiety medicine out there to get me up on that stage, but I can't afford not to.

Some days, I quite hate academia.

I saw this at the coffee shop when I stopped this morning.

A friend of mine may have done the following this evening:

a) Lost their main set of house keys in the last week or so


b) Before they could be replaced, left the spare set in a coworker's car after they gave my friend a ride to work this morning. Coworker is currently in the Seattle area, with their car, for a conference.


This is not my week.

[Filtered message to Frodo Baggins, Aragorn]

I have to say that this is a strange way of communicating with both of you, especially the two of you whom I read about as a child back in England. I've recently, um, how shall I put this? Acquired Samwise as a partner in my head. The girl he had previously...I believe she returned to her home country, from what he tells me. Anyway.

Samwise mentioned that you lot might be going on a quest soon. He seems particularly worried about it, understandably so from what I understand about what's going to happen soon in your world. I can ask for a holiday from work to make it easier for Samwise to shift back and forth between worlds easily enough, if you think it would assist both of you.

Samwise -
I have taken the time to pen a note to your old Gaffer. Nob will take it to Buckland next week or the following one and have Uncle Rory send it on up to Hobbiton. That should give us the extra time that we need it. I have only _stretched_ the truth in a few places, and have left out the real reasons behind our journey southward.

Gaffer Gamgee, #5 BagShot Row, Hobbiton, The Shire. )

[In Sindarin]
I think we should leave the Inn seperately and meet up again somewhere on the Southern Road. I have procured Samwise and I, a reason and a wagon south. I trust in your knowledge of the road that you will find an out of the way spot in which to reconvene. But that would spare the questioning that would surely arise from the Breelanders if we three were seen leaving Bree together.

Are dreams affected by the hotel?

[adam w]

I would be overjoyed to hear that you are not dead. Please verify that you are still alive.

This is I dreamt of you one night. We met on a branch in a forest full of towering trees. We talked about [...] subconscious minds.

Isildur's Lamant

If only I hadn't picked it up.

I'm sorry, my sons, for this legacy I pass.
A tower of stone, can crumble like glass.
I picked it up not thinking the evil it kept.
And into my heart this evil has crept.

Throw it away, they advised, Elrond and Cirdan.
To keep it will destroy us, that was for certain.
But my father was dead and so was my brother.
This wield-gold I'll keep, for tis like no other.

Now this burden lies heavy on my heart.
I watch and worry over it, will a new evil start?
Am I really Mordor's foe, or do I just pass the cup?
I'm sorry, my sons.
If only.

I hadn't picked it up.

How are you, Win?

Alright, the party wasn't bad for me, but Draco is in quite a state. Do horns and a shrunken head mean anything to anyone? I have never seen him so paranoid and terrified jittery.

Did everyone else come out alright?

Phone call to Toby F

[On the office line. Pretend like this was posted yesterday, okay? Okay.]

Ring, ring.

You change your mind about fucking me yet?


Come clean. Who else declared today a day drinking holiday? I know you fuckers, don't lie to me.

Mr. Frodo, Aragorn, look! [above, imagine a hand drawn image similar to the one linked]

The seeds I planted just after those holidays before are beginning to grow. They look quite lovely, I imagine, don't they, Mr. Frodo? Aye, I think they do. 'Tis a brighter future we'll be making, even if this is a wee thing that we can do to make it brighter.

So. My therapist recommended getting a pet. I've never been into cats (sorry to anyone I might offend), so I'm thinking a dog. A rescue, perhaps, because pet stores make me uncomfortable.

Anyone with any tips? Suggestions?

And Ben? If you're not up for adding a third canine roommate, do let me know. I'll get a goldfish, instead.

Would you call this bit of...I don't know if it's technology or magic or what the fuck. This bit of a thing more of a weird "I have a voice in my head" version of facebook or a blogging site? Or maybe some sort of newsletter? "Newsflash: Girl freshly arrived in Las Vegas develops headaches and a snarky British voice in her head. May or may not be going insane."

Personally, I'd like the classified sections. Are there any sort of discounts or new-hire priorities for having a voice in your head?
