{One cannot hunt the great Evils of the cities unendingly. Even Elves need a rest now and then and Thranduil thinks, perhaps, his is well-earned. His golden hair is damp from a hot soak and he is wearing a silk bathrobe.}

I grow weary of facing crime. {As well as completing the duties of his job - of which partially explain why he is attired as such.} Is there any reward for our acts of heroism or are we expected to do them out of the goodness of our hearts?

{He lays himself down on a sofa, stretching out luxuriously.}

Furthermore, I suppose I must impart some of the finer secrets of Dorwinion wine if I am to enjoy another glass of it. The wine humans offer is...subpar at best.

{To enforce that point, he lifts up a half-drunk glass, swirling the contents.}

I feel nothing even after drinking a bottle.

Hiatus!

  Hey everyone! I'm running across the border and back on an exciting immigration adventure, which includes over 13 hours of ferry boating fun time. So, what does this mean for you, my lovely brethren? It means I will be incommunicado for the next couple of days, and probably exhausted and sleeping for the day after that. 

SO Poe and I will be on a quick hiatus but we will be back soon. If any immediately necessary questions come up, see Stacey and her boy Finn and just assume Poe is up to shenanigans with him somewhere.

Keep on grooving you beautiful angels

[The video feed, active and recording, shows Crane in his study - but not as usual behind his desk. It rolls around and shows him leaning over the mantelpiece with his elbow, without his jacket, still wearing his sweater vest and tie, with his sleeves rolled up in a manner one might consider casual. He doesn't look at the camera as he gets to work removing an inkwell and quill and then sets down a wooden perch.

Without warning, there's a structured burst of cawing followed by a period of quiet.

Crane steps away from the fireplace and looks up at the lighting. Squatting on the lamp's metal arm is a short-billed black bird. It looks much like all the other black birds one can spot around town.]


If you are quite through?

[He ignores the camera a bit longer in order to bench it on its perch, but not for the first time it flies back to where it seems comfortable. He tries again, and not much to his surprise it returns home. Despite the clear camaraderie the two of them share, he leans on one side and directs his eyes at the ceiling. He is not generally fond of opinions from the masses but finally addresses the camera admist another round of cawing.]

I cannot very well invite him to fly around my office anonymously. If you would like to name him, I will take on board your suggestions.

[Trying not to sound too frustrated, he checks his sleeve. His face goes thunderous.]

Excuse me.

[He clicks his nails against the mantlepiece and then, in true fashion, at least to those who know him, preserves his dignity by switching off the video.]

[her hair is up, the armour she's wearing is quite different from her usual flightsuit, and--

as per usual her space mice are sitting on her shoulders, this time hugging her face as she speaks because they might have been left behind when she Ported out.
]

It is normal to not remember a thing about this place upon returning to our own universe, correct? Because now I think I finally understand what everyone meant when I was told time back home is essentially put on pause while we remain here.

I am not sure if I will ever get accustomed to alternate universes. This one in particular. But it is reassuring to know that my being here does not change the course of action back home. This world is a vacation of sorts--

WHO: Yuri Plisetsky, Yuuri Katsuki, Otabek Altin
WHERE: Heropa 17; Otabek's apartment
WHEN: August, before the Swear Out
WHAT: Time for some important talks and bonding
WARNINGS: Discussion of murderers and related unpleasantries

Yuuri
[It's late in the morning after Yusuke's late night visit—the one that Yuri is praying was very stealthy and unnoticed, but likely was not. He hadn't gotten much sleep the night before. It'd been too hard to sleep soundly even with the warm comfort of Yusuke at his side, and so he's wound up sleeping in (fitfully, of course), until almost noon—long after his boyfriend snuck back out the window and to his own unit.

When Yuri finally ventures downstairs he makes a beeline for the coffee pot, rubbing the lingering sleep from his eyes. This isn't actually out of the ordinary. He relies on coffee more and more these days and usually starts his day with couple of cups of the stuff. He grumbles to himself while he sets a new pot up to brew and opens the fridge to frown at the contents while he waits for it to finish. A few beats pass, and he calls out to whoever happens to be in the living room when he can't find what he wants.]


Oi! Are we out of cream?


Otabek
[It's a different day, but still late in the morning. Yuri had breakfast and his morning chores and training regimen to complete before he made the trip across town to Otabek's apartment. He's not entirely sure what the other boy wants to talk about. In fact, he's a little nervous about it since it was apparently too important to chat about over a text. But, he thinks to himself, maybe it's a surprise date? Yuri was still learning and getting used to all of Otabek's quirks and tendencies, but he thought it sounded like something he might do. Maybe.

At the very least he's sure it can't be anything too bad. There wasn't any reason to think it might be, so he swallows down his nerves and tries to look as relaxed as he can when he rings Otabek's doorbell.]

Hello Mask or Menace! This month's player-run Swear-In is now live to serve as the community mingling log. As a reminder, this log is divided between two rival top-levels: the government-run pro-Registration Swear-In event in a hotel featuring 'Might Club' sparring matches, and a critical Swear-Out rally organized by dissatisfied imPorts, held in a nearby park. Your character can choose between the two gatherings, or attend both as they please. More details and plotting for these events can be found here. Have fun, and feel free to ask here if you have any questions!

WHEN: Noon to dusk on August 15th, a fine sunny day
WHAT: Registration in motion inside, dissent in motion outside! While the government hosts its Swearing-In and Might Club training event within the hotel, dissatisfied imPorts stage a Swear-Out protest nearby to demonstrate their displeasure! Remember to record your character’s status here
WARNINGS: Non-lethal violence in the Might Club prompt. Note that this event is divided into two top-levels for the two competing gatherings- see here for plotting and further details

HELLO EVERYONE! Zoe here to tell you that Doctor Octopus is starting to do something this month! It's not a full plot so much as a thing he's doing & if you want to help him out / cause him problems you can sign up here!

He has a secret plan for building a secret thing (it's a mobile underwater base/laboratory with a Surprise Twist).

In order to finish building it, however, he needs supplies. How's he gonna get 'em? Stealing them of course!

For the next little while there's going to be a rash of thefts in tech-happy De Chima as several prominent technology corporations are going to be the target of robberies.

For these he's going to hire native criminals and metahumans to commit the robberies! He's also willing to hire import criminals to steal junk for him - he's a member of the Constellation so he'll ask there but even if your character isn't a member but is stealing-inclined lmk and Ock can hire them through a proxie he sent out to find people who can do the dirty work!

If your character does tech-stuff in De Chima and wants to be one of the people GETTING ROBBED, that's an option too! If there's any specific tech he can steal please lmk.

AND FINALLY: for the native criminal & metahuman robberies, feel free to get your superhero stuff on and stop them!

If you want to investigate further, please talk to me! Otto isn't going to be directly linked to anything enough to get caught, but I'm willing to negotiate with how much stuff your character can figure out.

I THINK THAT'S EVERYTHING. GO ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS.

Hey guys! So, I realized that when I first joined the game, I didn't make a permissions post for D33, here. His backstory contains some pretty sensitive themes, so PLEASE check out his post and comment on it with your characters - I'm not looking to make anyone uncomfortable and if you want to opt out of playing with D33, that is 100% okay. If you have any questions or need to hit me up for any reason, my plurk is [plurk.com profile] pantheraliam.

Thanks guys!

EDIT: It would probably help if I actually linked the permissions post, huh? RIP.

[ And we're live. The Technical Boy is seated on his bed in his room, communicator in one hand and the newest uPhone in the other, distractedly playing one of those mindnumbing mobile games. Every once in a while, the sound effects chirp, chime and serve as background music. His room's been redecorated in geometric decor and a roomba goes zooming by on the floor. ]

24.45 hours studying this network. And I'm bored.

[ Implied: You're boring. ]

You guys are practically gods. Granted, that's a lowercase G. But still. Your power here goes unmatched and all you can do is sit around talking about restaurant recommendations and dating sims? How about we have some real talk.

[ His thumb blurs over the screen of his uPhone, taking just a minute to beat the level with an air of superiority. Everyone can wait for him to make his proposal because he's definitely more important. And once the victory fanfare sounds, he tosses the phone to the side -- for the first time giving his full attention to the camera. ]

You're the old models. The old generation of imPorts who are just waiting to be made anew. So here's where I come in.

[ Kanaya doesn't look happy. She looks like someone who has spent two days playing a mobile game nonstop, and hated every second of it. But she important things to say about it now. ]

So, I didn't plan to waste any more of my time thinking about this silly game, but after everyone on Bwitter decided that it was worth blowing up my shouts over, I found that it may be worth looking into further. Frankly, much of the content they related of this "Papaya Delirium" stand-in is rather concerning.

After spending far longer playing "Heart Kapow Wow" [ Though she stops short of using air-quotes, she says it with as much disdain as possible, what kind of stupid title is that? ] than I ever intended to spend on as pointless an endeavor as this, allow me to make a few disclaimers. And, for the record, I can't believe this shit has somehow become necessary.

First, stop recommending Hallmark movies to me. I don't care, I don't want to watch them

Second, no, I am not Jason Vorhees. I don't even know who that is.

Third, I'm not a wasp, or any kind of bee. Stop sending me jokes about bees.

Fourth, and perhaps most importantly, no, I do not have an ovipositor. I do not plant eggs in people. I am not seeking a new egg host for my children, I will not lay eggs in you on request, no amount of money you offer me is enough to make me want to roleplay this scenario with you, or even to think about it any more than you've already made me, and thanks so much for that. I don't want to see any art you've made of the event, I don't want to know that you're making art or writing whatever it is you are while stimulating whatever nether-organs your species has evolved. I don't want to know, please stop making me know about these things. You're all disgusting.

And finally, I. Do not. Date. Men. I don't care what your vexing virtual vespine vixen told you. She isn't me, and she isn't real, and I am seriously considering a call to my lawyer to see if something can't be done about her very existence. If you are trying to hit on me over Bwitter, you've already lost. Please stop.

[ She lets out a long exhale, rubbing her temples. Her brows furrow as she considers something, then relax for a moment as she screws up her lips and opens her eyes, then furrows her brows again, dropping her hands and looking back into the camera. ]

Does anyone know how to get my good ending? Do I even have one? It would really figure if I didn't.

[it looks like you may have stumbled on a cinema channel. The picture quality is different from normal transmission. Hard to say how. Colors more intense but light more hazy. Sensory input… it's almost more tactile than visual. See in feeling. Wind on face, sun on back, weight on feet…
It's not this distortion that makes the land and the light look unearthly. It's not Earth.

The woods of De Chima. Hitting the ground from the Porter at a dead run.

Work blast it.
