Back in my world (and a whole lot of other people’s I’m sure), Monday, May 30th will mark Memorial Day. It’s an American federal holiday honoring those we’ve lost who have fought in the military, namely the United States armed forces. This is usually the time I’d go to DC to visit the grave of my best friend Riley who was killed in combat. I got my own complicated history with the US and its military and their many actions but Riley was a man utterly devoted to defending his country and I commend him for it.

While we can’t exactly visit memorials and cemeteries of those lives, I still take this day to remember and reminisce, which I can now do at the Wilson house that has pretty much already celebrated its one-year anniversary of popping up in this world.

I’m not one to do much for this day though my sister and nephews usually had a small get-together and a BBQ at our place, something quiet and laid back, nothing like that huge extravaganza I did last year for July fourth. If anyone wants to pop by, my doors will be open, so will the BBQ grill. And Lola will probably be around asking people to play fetch.

Filter: Avengers + Affiliates
Look, a certain birdie reminded me I’m now the only Captain America in this place, but I’m not going to pretend I’m good at making grand speeches like Steve was, so no judgement.

I’ll have extra food for y’all if you want to come through. Don’t feel like you have to if you got something to do though. This is going to be super chill.

Hi! So the baby bison aren't so BABY anymore and they need to practice flying with passengers more. The problem is they're VERY easily distracted so their flights tend to be uhhhhh erratic?? I'm doing my best to get them all some air time each week when I'm not at the Sanctuary, but I could use a little help. Anybody with flying experience would be great! The ability to float or control the elements would probably work well too. Or just even anybody who won't DIE if they fall from the sky?? Not that you will for sure fall from the sky! Boshay hasn't dropped me at ALL yet. He does really like to dive though haha ANYWAY.

Thank you?!

Out of curiosity, and I apologize if I am speaking out of turn, but has there been any progress in fixing all of the odd identity shenanigans that are happening right now? I do not wish to rush anyone, however I would rather like to have my wizard back.

Ah. No offense meant, Illidan.

Normally this is when I would offer assistance, but I know this sort of magic is outside my expertise and experience and am just humble enough to admit it.

Hypothetically, if one were to go to bed last night at seventeen and wake up today at eighteen, what are some things that she should do today to celebrate being a year older and suddenly an adult?

Hypothetically!

Hey friends,

D&D is this Friday at 7 because time is weird, right? But because it's April 1st and, heck, I like to throw things to the wind, we'll play Honey Heist.

Basically, everyone is a bear.

And the goal is to heist some damn honey.

There are six different types of bear you can be, but if you're really clever and can make an argument for a different type of bear (or bear-adjacent animal), I reward creativity. Same with the roles (muscle, brains, driver, hacker, thief, face) and basic descriptors. It's actually pretty simple--so if you've never played any TTRPGs, it's good to try! The rules are literally one sheet and you only have 2 stats: bear, or criminal. You can also have a special skill that is bear-themed, again, points for creativity. You roll when you want to use your bear skill or your criminal skill, but if you're successful it moves you one step closing towards becoming full bear or full criminal. Chaos ensues.

And, of course, it's a heist, so the bears need disguises. Hats, specifically.

The best bear pun name wins a prize because I'm weak.

Put your ideas below.

There have been a lot of things that I've gotten to read/listen to/watch that I'd never have been able to experience in 1969 and technically going to Disney is one of them, but uh. Pretty sure that place is way more rad than it was back then, I am just saying.

Consider me joining the legions that ever don't want to leave.

We have approximately 18 people missing, as far as we're able to account for. I'll post the list below so we can continue to double-check and fill in blanks as needed.

We're unsure of exactly where they're at, but the tech group has put together a [VIDEO FEED] that you can follow along with by keeping track. Everyone is wearing masks, and there are far more than our 18 in this feed, so we can't be sure who is who just yet. If you have trouble viewing the feed, Mei and Morgan can troubleshoot.

Usernames + Missing List )

If there's anyone not on these lists but are missing, please let us know at the DOA immediately.

ETA: We received word that Colt didn't show up for work - does anyone know him well?

[OOC: Please assume there's just a link to the corresponding video feeds linked above!]

Someone I work with mentioned that today is some sort of celebration of pie and who am I to not participate this morning: cut for picture of breakfast pie~ )

Yes, I will be having pie for lunch and dinner and no, I'm not interested in criticism.

Since it's starting to warm up, what would you say to planning another camping trip with Velora?

There are several other posts about this already, but I reserve the right to make my own. You can really suck sometimes, Vallo.

Things weren't always easy between us, we dealt with a lot of shit growing up, especially when we reached high school. It's almost impossible to imagine living in any reality without you. Where ever they are now though, I know they'll be fine. She's Caroline Forbes. Miss Mystic Falls, Head Cheerleader, best friend. I'll miss complaining about hangovers to you after we drink too much wine, even though you don't get them and it makes me want to throw things at you in jealousy. Which is sort of a step up from when we used to chug coffee at the Mystic Grill in an attempt to be sober before sneaking back home after another party in a questionable location?

Love you.

I'm not as great at the speeches as Steve was even if we have the same name (and don't call me Steve, by the way) - he just had a knack for it. Despite that, I'll do my best.

Sometimes this place sucks but, you know, the pasta's top notch. And blahblahblah, hang tight to the ones you care about.

That's it. That's the speech.

On another note, I think I've mentioned I do medical research here in addition to some GP clinic work since brain surgery's no longer an option for me. One subsection of that research I'm hoping to focus on is what changes occur with exposure to or bonding with, say, a magical rock or other magical items. And what benefits that may bring, how that can potentially be incorporated into or extended to different treatments. We have some ties to the infinity stones here (including myself) but I know we also have other people who have bonded with magical rocks and things - if you are willing and wouldn't mind coming in to see me, I'd be interested in asking questions and maybe taking a blood sample if possible. No pressure either way, but being transparent about research is important so that's what I've been working on. Clearly I should stick to medical research and not speeches.

I don't really know how to preface this without it sounding like bragging. So I guess that's okay. But I have a dragon of my very own. Or really he's his own but we have a mutual understanding and he seems to really only like me, so I'll take it. I've been calling him Druk, which means Lightning Dragon. He still has some growing to do before he can carry more than just me, but if anyone wants to meet him then feel free to come by the Preserve. He's not overly fond of the more aggressive dragons so I'll need to give him something more proper soon, but it's a decent space for now.

Stone House
Aang, do you remember that golden egg gem we found at the Sun Warrior temple? I think that was him. When I met him, I felt that same... sensation that I had when I picked up what we thought was a glowing gem. He's from home!

[ANCIENT JOURNAL ➣ VALLO DAY TWO | SPHERE LATE DAY THREE]
I know even writing here is a longshot but thought it entirely possible there might be another "Ancient Vallo" in place and we're at the stage of trying everything back home.

So if anyone sees this and you're on whatever excursion Vallo has sent you on, a check-in would be most appreciated.


[VALLO NETWORK POST ➣ DAY TWO]
It appears any of us who have the journals from Ancient Vallo should be able to communicate with our missing members, I was checking mine just today as a last-ditch effort and have managed to talk to a few of them now.

Can anything be done with this to help locate them?

[filtered away from the princess squad.]

Hey, question.

Anyone got any ideas about how someone can make up for the fact that a) you took over a person's kingdom and kind of broke it and b) you messed up reality to the point that your friend's mom got stuck between dimensions to save it?

Asking for me because I'm a colossal fuck up. Serious replies only. Being away from home makes it hard to fix things.

Hello, greetings, salutations, good morning.

Normally I would just chalk this up to 'Vallo weather anomaly' and move along with my weird day, but. It snowed inside the Sanctum and everything's iced over.

The Rotunda of Gateways seems to have somehow (Vallo quirk? A hiccup?) opened up to a snowstorm on a mountaintop. Apologies for any inconvenience - I already sealed everything up again so this should wear off momentarily.






In short, the Sanctum has indigestion. Thanks for your time.
