May I pick your beautiful and magical minds on something?

Hello! I don't know if we've ever been more formally introduced, but I'm Octavia. I know that this reaching out might be a bit out of pocket, but I was hoping you might indulge me just a smidge as I'm starting out doing a bit of research and some of it involves questions about Vallo and I understand the three of you might be best qualified on this network to start with.

All that blustering on to say that my research is involving Vallo's native vampires and I would be happy to make trade for information or anything like that, if you'd like. But I don't want to get too deeply into what I'm looking for, if you'd rather pass, so--if you're willing to have a conversation, please let me know.

If it isn't too presumptuous, I would request tomorrow evening off and away from my duties at the home. Is that acceptable?

It's been a very long time since I've been to China and this is obviously the furthest away I've been, but seeing my daughter running around in a dragon onesie while eating jiaozi and longevity noodles makes it feel closer than ever before. It is definitely one of the better Lunar New Years that I can remember, which feels pretty fortuitous for the year itself.

That being said, I hope everyone enjoys prosperity, dumplings, and happiness going into the new year.

I'm not exactly sure what the hell happened in the last few days, but thanks to whoever held down the fort at the clinic. I'm assuming someone did since there were a lot of broken people coming through whatever the fuck was happening. Did I

Never thought I would say that I'm starting to feel too old for Vallo shenanigans.

VALLO PRIME, RESCUERS, & FLIPPED REBELS
Full disclosure, I am not a full-time employee with the magic department at the DOA, but so many of us are gone and you are stuck with me, delivering good and bad news. Hello!

The good news is that thanks to the brilliant researchers in both our Vallos looking into where Bronislovas's resting place might be located on the other side of the portal, we're pretty damn sure of where it is, between his notes, so many books, and what info we got from Beketh. The thought is that it's within a cave system in one of the mountains by the city. Here's a map, for your reference:

[pretend there's a cool looking map here with probable mountains highlighted]

Unfortunately that's more or less all we can do on our side for now, so it's up to all of you fine people over there to pick up the trail. If we can do things, we'll do it, just let us know.

And now the bad news: the portal is causing some oddities. The portal monsters from a few months ago are back, seemingly being created by or summoned by the portal itself. If you have fighting skills of some sort but aren't already involved with defense, please reach out to Evie and Kara and they'll get you sorted as needed.

The other odd thing is that the area around the portal seems to be, for lack of a better way of putting it, turning into what we can only assume the other side of the portal looks like. Buildings are suddenly in disrepair and there's a lot of graffiti talking about your Revenants and how disliked they are, missing people posters, that kind of stuff. This started yesterday and the area affected has only grown today, so it would appear we're on even more of a timetable than we thought.

All right, that is all I have for the moment, so...go team?

Testing, testing. Are you getting this? We're using my connection to the Black Lion and the quintessence tech in my arm to form a bridge between the networks. Basically, we're playing telephone through a giant sentient spaceship. Stop by and thank him for me? I'm sure he's stressed by all of this.

Anyway, assuming someone is reading this, on the other side of the portal is a parallel Vallo. We've made contact with a group of Outlanders here and confirmed that they are alternate versions of some of our lost people. Most of them have lived here for years and some have different memories of their home worlds. They've formed a rebellion against another group, made up of more of our lost people. They call themselves the Court of Revenants and they're the reason this message is filtered as best as I can get it.

Please be aware that Council members might look like someone you've lost, but they have apparently taken control of this Vallo through force and terror. There is a stalemate between the Council and the Rebels because any physical violence here creates what they call Echoes - spectral enemies that attack anyone close by and only stop when the fighting stops.

Now I'm sure you're wondering where our Outlanders are. I've been told the people here suffered a violent headache and a flash of memories that then faded when the portal opened on this side. It can't be a coincidence. I suspect our people are tangled up metaphysically with their counterparts. I have no idea how to separate them. If you have any theories, please don't be shy.

As for the rescue team, everyone is accounted for and safe. Our focus right now is planning a recovery mission. A few rebels were taken captive just before we arrived. Keith is We will get them back. In the meantime, please feel free to use this post to brainstorm and reconnect. Since I know it'll be a question on your minds, here is the list of the captured:
• Ashton Greymoore
• Dorian Storm
• Keith Kogane
• Luffy
• Nancy Wheeler
• Noctis Lucis Caelum
And a list of the Council and their allies:
• Caleb Widogast
• William Laurence
• Henry Townshend
• Kellach Donnallen
• Ostyia Rabalska
• Teddy Kaplan-Altman
• Billy Kaplan
• Abigail Blyg
• Lan Xichen
• Lee Thompkins
• Joshua Rosfield
• Julian Blackthorn
• Ronan Lynch
• Serefin Meleski
• Silas
Anyone not on either of these lists should be able to see and respond to this post. Okay, enough rambling. Time to see if this actually works.

We have over 30 missing Outlanders so far and more names are still coming in. The portal they went through is still open, and now protected by a barrier so we don't lose track of anyone else for now, but it does seem to be a working portal, but we cannot guarantee that it is a two-way street, given our friends and family have not stepped back through yet we have to assume the way may be blocked on their side.

We still plan to launch a rescue mission, but the group going through also needs to be aware of the risks and be able and willing to set up communications in the event that a return trip won't be immediate.

The DOA is going to be confirming the list of those missing so we have exact names and numbers, and studying the portal to ensure it's safe to travel through.

The current plan is that tomorrow we'll send a group through, if you wish to sign up to be on the rescue mission, put your name here and be at the DOA offices in the morning for a full briefing. Pack ONE bag, no larger than what you can carry and run with, and bring your weapons of choice.

Hello.

I was wondering if there would be any interest in a monthly book club, as I've come to develop a fondness for human literature (thank you to Darlington, who suggested that I read 'Frankenstein' and 'Dracula'. I enjoyed both). I've not the first clue as to what's widely popular or of historical importance; perhaps we might chose our reads by voting on suggestions.

Books do not function as amiably where I'm from; they have spirits of their own, and are alive, in a manner of speaking. It's quite strange to see so few flying, or spitting ink when upset - but admittedly it does make the reading go much faster.

I understand there have been happenings this week, but I ask forgiveness as I talk about myself as today marks the end of my first week as a teacher of music, a sentence that I would have never imagined saying at almost any point in my life. As unexpected a change of pace, though, it's a real good one. It was a rewarding week and I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes moving forward.

Though, for the record: if any of your young ones come home with songs that might easily get stuck in your head, I apologize in advance.

It has been a while since I first brought this up, so please forgive me for the tardiness, however: the first meeting of Queer Magic Women has been scheduled. If you fall under that header one way or another and would like to spend some time with us to talk, discuss magic, and maybe show off some of the previous, we will be meeting at Freya's Sanctuary on this upcoming Sunday the 21st at 4PM. Wine and snacks will be provided, but don't hesitate to bring your own or something to share.

Should this take off, we'll look into making it a monthly or so occurrence, depending on what schedules look like.

I'm looking forward to getting to meet some more of you! And of course, I would be remiss not to say once more, thank you to Freya for offering your space!

After some initial coaching, I think I'm doing this right. Clever device, this. I'll take it over a Sending any day of the week.

Having been told that Tav and Astarion are here is good news as well. Sorry Astarion, I hear you only work nights or we would have already seen you.

I say we because Shadowheart is here with me, we're both marveling over Electri City. I'm also finding myself very fond of the lack of chamber pot smells.

Ah oh, yes, hello, Wyll Ravengard, formerly the Blade of Frontiers and more recently the Blade of Avernus. Perhaps you've heard a few stories?

I can't pretend to understand the mechanics of what brought me to Vallo, but your holiday traditions were diverting, at least. From what I understand, the point now is to get through the winter until the thaw. Are there any more upcoming holidays that I should be aware of?

[ Filtered to residents of Blackthorn Manor ]

Did any of you see fit to make resolutions, if I might be so curious?

And secondly, when would you wish the holiday decorations to make their departure?

After taking some Tylenol (I cannot handle an extra glass of wine like I used to, not because re-lived my college years somewhere out in the city) to nurse this stereotypical New Year's headache, I realized that this month marks my sixth month here. I keep thinking this place is going to kick me out like it has the first two times. It's definitely the longest I've been here, and while I miss the two main males of my life, I'm grateful to still be around.

But this sense of staying around long-term has made me realize that I need stable employment to spoil people with. Please see this shameless photo of who I am in need of spoiling. It's both of them.

Background: Military, NASA, Engineer, Astronaut, space-traveled, crash-landed on another planet a galaxy away from Earth, married the prince, became queen, did a lot of politics and sword battle. I enjoy getting my hands dirty. I also enjoy wearing jeans again versus the royal garb.

Would anyone have any leads on some kind of mechanical work? I'm a bit rusty, but I've retained a lot over the years, and if I can successfully figure out the kinks of a one-thousand-year-old spaceship that needed oil changing, I can most likely translate that into smaller vessels.

I'm fond of the holiday desserts I've discovered here so far. Maybe a little too fond. Luffy, come eat the rest of this chocolate pecan pie before I make myself sick.

A question for the rest of you, if you're bored and want to help a man out. What dessert would you recommend I try if you only had one pick? I have a soft spot for chocolate and citrus, but I'm willing to try anything once.

Does anyone have any toddler-friendly ideas for Christmas or Solstice celebrations? We've only been able to do things at home or with Julian and Emma in the past few years, because we've had to keep a low profile, but that isn't as much of a problem here and I'd like to take the opportunity for us to go a little overboard this year as a family.

Also any tips to get a "cool" teenager to wear a matching "decidedly uncool" family sweater.

FILTERED AWAY FROM TSC:
Has anyone experienced having ah- two spouses, here, from two separate times?

To explain a little further; Will and Jem were connected and shadowhunter partners before I met them. I had a connection with both of them, and ultimately became engaged to Jem. Circumstances out of our control separated us, but with his blessing, I later married Will. This was a hundred and fifty years ago. We had a full and happy and wonderful marriage with him, until he passed.

I'm immortal, so I continued on as I am now, but grieving. It took decades, but Jem was healed and we were able to be together again, we married a few years ago and now we have Mina.

They are both here, and I am very lucky, make no mistake, to be lucky enough to have them. Will is from the early days of our marriage, and Jem is from our current time - they're both very happy to be with each other again, as we've always loved all of each other, bonded as family. But it is becoming a little awkward and I haven't figured out how to breach the "who am I married to" topic in terms of intimacy with them.

I know this place is strange so if anyone has any advice, I welcome it.
