Right, well, that was a nice week off, and I'm ready to work.

I've seen people write on this communication device that they were desiring of training. I understand there to be a great variety of options already for this kind of thing, but if it's not a kick in the teeth, I'd like to have a go of it as a way to earn my keep around here. This wouldn't be intended for people who have the experience and the skills and powers I can't comprehend, etc, already in place, although I wouldn't kick out anyone with a genuine interest in improvement. This would be intended for people who have little experience with self-defense and want the basics, and we build from there - a way to keep the populace safer when we have these monsters breach our defenses and get as far as city center.

I'm thinking daggers, sword (one hander only, and on top of that, I don't have much use for shields in this exercise because they require so much body strength up front, and because the point here is not to tank through a hit so much as avoid it in the first place), club... open to suggestions. Also will have a blunderbuss or its like on standby; Vallo has yet to give me my gun but I'm not an Upper Cathedral snob; I'll work with what's available.

So: common lessons for those who want to learn from the ground up. I did it off and on for years back home. Physical self-defense only; while I can do magic there are several perfectly knowledgable universities that can be of more assistance for that, and I hear they don't even make their students prospect through any cursed tombs.

Any interest? Any objections? Speak.

Okay, I think I'm more settled in now and adjusted, despite arriving in the middle of a vulture attack. Seriously, what the hell was that? Lord...

Anyway, what sort of jobs are out there?

[OOC: Will have WandaVision spoilers in the cut filters and comments!]

It's World Sleep Day, which I think means we're going with Movie Day in Comp Sci. Hackers or The Matrix, maybe. Vallo PJ day? Is that something I can pitch for? I'm declaring it a PJ day for myself.

Look, if I'm going to accidentally land us on a new universe, at least there's a musical introduction to soothe the sting.

Billy Kaplan, from the Young Avengers, in case anyone is semi-familiar with us.

And it's totally not my fault this time, guys, I would definitely know if I created an entire universe and trapped people from different universes on it.
I think.
Probably.


My twin brother Tommy is also here--or, was, at least, he zipped off and if you were holding a slice of pizza or a frappuccino or a hot dog or had a cool looking hat on and all of a sudden it vanished, that was him and I apologize profusely. To tell us apart, he's got white hair and has no opinion on the best Robin (which is Tim Drake, by the way, just saying, even though Stephanie Brown being Robin AND Batgirl is legendary).

Happy Valentine's Day, Vallo.

Bucky and I have made a small video for you as a friendly reminder for this day.

Um, terribly sorry to add to your troubles, but-- I would like to request a daring rescue, please? There were more, lots more than I had thought there were -- I hadn't checked the network since this morning so I didn't know it's a suboptimal time to pick wildflowers, and --- anyway! Yes! Please save my stupid arse, thank you! I took down a lot of them but there were so many...

Oh, and don't worry; it's red velvet cake I'm covered in, not blood.




Wait, no that's definitely blood; the turkeys got the cake. Bitty, I am so sorry. It was beautiful. Richie, I tried to get you a cake. It was very romantic; Bitty outdid himself. Surprise!

Sure, why not.

That's the short summary - but the longer summary is, we're brought here by an inexplicable 'blip' (which is actually the technical term I've heard used to describe a similar phenomenon and, well, I guess there really isn't a better word than blip) of arcane energy that won't pop us back out until the balance is offset once more, but in the meantime we're supposed to 'build lives' and 'drink much alcohol.'

Free drink at Galahd for the newcomers, I got that too.

Oh, and occasionally monsters crawl from the woodwork and/or forest to come kill us, and there's also another dark dimension mirroring this one currently contained in a snowglobe trinket. What am I missing? Anyone want to chime in?

I was told that I didn't need to make a speech at the wedding; that it'd be a largely casual affair. I get that, I do. But at the same time, getting to see this marriage seems like a special event to me and not something I thought I'd get to see. I guess I have Vallo to thank for that, even if it feels like there's been a few lifetimes for these two that I wasn't around to witness beforehand.

So in an effort to keep from making people hold their drinks during a long-winded speech from me at the reception, I decided I'd just put my little speech here for anyone who wanted to hear it - or read it. Those of you that know me can probably picture me saying it anyway, if not reading this in my voice. I'll take that to mean it works just fine.

Tomorrow, my best friend is getting married. Before that, let me tell you a bit about him.

When I was a kid, I was just about the scrawniest, sickliest guy this side of the Bronx. A day didn't go by that I wasn't bullied or ridiculed, but I can admit that there were a lot of times I purposefully put myself in those situations - I had something to prove, or maybe I just hoped it would eventually end. It sounds a little silly now, but I'm glad I did. Because in 1930, some thirteen year old tough guy caught sight of me getting my can kicked in and, without any kind of sense of self-preservation or promise of reward, he jumped in and saved me.

You might be thinking if I got into so many fights, how did stopping one of them save me? It was more than that, there was an immediate kinship there. A bond between two boys from Brooklyn. James Buchanan Barnes, Bucky to those he liked, was a cut above most even by that age. He saw some weak, traumatized kid who he'd find out was an orphan and turned him into family. Because that's the kind of guy he is. There's more people here that have become family with Bucky, so you know what I'm talking about.

We palled around for years after that, best friends against the world. He always looked out for me, always had my back. When we found out about the war with Germany, World War II, we both wanted to do our part to help the country. Did Bucky try to talk me out of it? Not at all. He spent weeks teaching me how to box at Goldie's. Giving up his time to give me a chance to prove myself when it came time to sign up. I don't need to tell you how my attempts to enlist went, but the fact that he always believed in me - that's a sign of who he is.

Now I can look out across faces at some of these gatherings and see all the smiles and the laughter directed at Bucky and I can say that he's finally found a place where he's got what he's earned. Found family. Friends. A cat. Goats. And some fella who makes his heart sing. So I want to take a moment and ask everyone to grab a nearby drink and hold it up. To Bucky and Nyx. May their future together be as bright as the shine on Bucky's arm after a good polish. You two mean a lot to me and I'm glad I'll be there to see you two get married.

All my love,
Steve Rogers

Guess who showed up just in time for the wedding? Meet Kap. He's kind of an asshole, but he's fixed and can't knock up anyone else's cat anymore.

If he shows up where you are, just shoo him away. He'll take it personally, but he'll leave.

[ FILTERED TO FRIENDS & FAMILY OF NYX & BUCKY ]
Can't wait to see everyone tonight.

And just a reminder, dress up nice, but don't go full tux and ball gowns for the wedding. Think nice, but casual.

[ FILTERED TO TINA COHEN-CHANG & NYX ULRIC ]
So quick question, Tee, how quickly do you think you can get ordained?

[ FILTERED TO STEVE ROGERS ]
Just realized I never actually asked you and just assumed it - but, best man? Just gotta stand up there and remember the ring.

[FILTERED TO DEFENSE TEAMS]
Teams,

I'm temporarily stepping into the commander role for defense in Sara and Shiro's absence. I'll relinquish it when we find them and the rest of our missing friends. Based off roster and communication attempts, I've identified who is missing.

Thankfully, most of our coordinators are still here, but the teams have been hit pretty hard.

Ezio, Sirius, we're pulling you out of reserves and placing you with Team A. Teams A and B will be combined under Cassian for the moment.

Jacob, Syd, you two as well, joining Team D. Teams C and D will be combined under Daisy until we're back at full force.

Form up, be ready. This is the perfect time for something or someone to attack and that's not going to succeed on our watch.
[ooc | please assume Steve has personally reached out to everyone just to confirm if they're here or not, and I've highlighted everyone missing from the Defense roster sheet for reference]

I know there's more than a few of us undergoing some fairly drastic changes right now and I won't lie to you and tell you it's normal. Or even normal for here; most of you have been here long enough to know how this place operates.

What I will tell you is -- don't freak out. It's only temporary and you're still the same person on the inside. Be true to who you are, or even who you think you are if that's the case, and we'll get through this together.

So about when I said I wasn't affected by this latest weird thing the other day?

I should have announced my arrival more quickly. I had no idea my comings and goings were so interesting!

To any of my friends in the Avengers or who fought beside us I look forward to renewing our friendship.

To friends I have not yet met, I look forward to doing so.

[filtered to Loki]

I would like us to meet along the water. I think avoiding enclosed spaces, potentially lethal falls and unsupervised contact would be for the best.




[filtered to Torunn]

Were you able to speak to your friend about a time for us to meet? I think it would be good if our first meeting did not occur in front of a large audience, but it is entirely up to you.




[filtered to Cap]

It appears that you and I have children of a sort. Tell me Steve is your son as good of a man as is father? I do not mean to offend, but apparently this is a question that having a daughter forces a man to ask. I am looking forward to getting to know Torunn and James further.

What other things do we need to catch up on?




[filtered to Bruce]

It would be helpful if we could meet for a sit rep.



[filtered to Hilde]

Thank you for knowing me well enough to be honest with me.

Ronan touched on this last week, but now we're a few days out from a major American holiday back home, which I know doesn't mean much here. To add to that, if I may, most Americans are also raised on a mistold version of history to make our predecessors sound better. I'm not immune to believing in the best of people - some of my friends might tell you I'm a little gullible at times. I think America may have a bit of tarnish here and there, but it's ultimately a good place full of a lot of good people. We accept our mistakes and learn from them, not cover them in paint and pretend they're better than they are. There's still plenty of us that will stick our heads in the sand and pretend otherwise, I know, but they're more and more a minority as time passes and I'll call that a win.

So while I don't celebrate the originations of Thanksgiving, I do think it's a great time to give thanks to those who have enriched your life and share time with people you've developed a bond with. And I see that here, there's people writing on the network about plans or events and it's wonderful to see. I'm glad to be a part of that.

[Avengers*]
That said, any plans? I've asked James and Torunn to see if they'd like to do something, but I don't want to exclude anyone if we can put together something larger. Alternatively, merging into something else is completely viable. However if you want to have something small and private, please don't feel any obligations to do something else.

Well, I got the official introduction to this place, and I'm not entirely sure what's real and what isn't just yet, but let's be real, either one could be possible.

I'm Sam, and I'm one of the new ones who just stepped through. Anyone see someone walking around with Jesus hair and a metal arm? Last time I checked he was supposed to be right next to me.
