So it's like...August, right?

( Ellie is small and vaguely grubby looking even after a shower, a damaged winter jacket sitting next to her shed to deal with the warmer temperatures. Some time has already been spent exploring every nook and cranny of her designated apartment (sorry housemates) and she's already begun hoarding, but that's neither here nor there. Just don't ask about the pile of apparent junk that is haphazardly stuffed under a blanket and comes into shot every now and then. )

How do birthdays work? Because I was still ages away from mine before here, but now it's like, soon. Do I call that a year older? 'Cause I'm already plenty wise.

( Ha Ha Ha et cetera. She's clearly amused enough to grin at that, but she doesn't waste much time in expecting anyone else to find it entertaining. Instead she just shrugs and continues quickly. )

And the houses. Is this whole place mine? Well not just mine, shared right? But I can use pretty much all of the space?

( She gives a wave by way of a sign out, but can be heard saying "that's so fucking cool!" as she fumbles to switch off her feed. )

Several questions that the information sheet didn't cover, though any other info would be nice.

[The voice sounds vaguely female, maybe a bit faint and hoarse, and like they are very grudgingly speaking English.]

Where can I find clothes? I was told you organics don't go out in public in 'scrubs'.

How long until I can transform again? It's the only 'power' left. I can't imagine the other Cybertronians here have this issue.

Speaking of them.... Can we talk?

And, I guess, how long does it take an organic to heal?

[ Unlike most instances when Daenerys addresses the network or those on it individually, she is more practical today than pretty. Intricate braids decorate her hair, but they likewise serve a purpose to control silver waves and keep them lashed down. Her face is clear of makeup, and her garments, leather and wool, are better suited for adventuring than high fashion.

Behind her, a late afternoon Virginian landscape from on high, as if she has climbed Whitetop Mountain just to make her pronouncement. ]


In light of recent attacks and violences against our little minority, I'm moved to address the fact that my imPort bodyguard has since been vanished home again. [ Feelings on the subject are mild, or have already been processed, practical in the moment. ] I envy her. And I've yet to determine whether appointing another is necessary, but--

[ The wind swamps her speakers, and she squints against it while it endures, before she starts again. ]

But I would be remiss if I did not learn how to defend myself. If there are those among you both adept at physical defense as well as willing to teach someone who is not, I'd like to come to an arrangement. I've no instinct for weaponry, [ she adds, to fend off the prospect of sword lessons and the like. ] But I would welcome the advice.

I hope you all remain safe. We have but one another.

[ Her message finishes with an understated smile, and an odd sound in the background, an animal, bass-deep purr, that some would recognise as to belonging to a dragon. Most may just think it to be more noise interference. She ends the transmission there. ]

[This is a weird step for Futaba--video makes her face known to the entire network--she's barely used to giving her actual name. Still, she's busy making actual notes on scratch paper. Her usual curtain of hair is tied up in a mess of a bun because of the heat, and she seems concerned about something. She's still focused on her list as she starts speaking.]

Does anyone here actually...go to school? I mean...American schools start up soon right? I made a promise I'd try going back when I was home. I guess this would count--even if it isn't one of the schools I was planning on going to.

[She frowns, setting down her paper and sticking her pencil behind her ear.]

Point being...I have questions.

Are these schools public? And even then...do they require uniforms? All the schools back home had them, even if some of the dress codes were pretty lax. At least I had an idea of what to expect there.

...Ugh, Maybe I shouldn't even go. This is getting complicated.

Hey Luke, buddy, how've you been? Things got kind of crazy with the clones and I feel like I haven't kept in touch. You maybe want to join me for a drink one of these nights?

[despite being in his robot form for the video, riptide is very clearly disturbed, but trying to cover it up with a faux grin.]

Earth is buggered!

[...oh.]

I just found out one of the DJD is here-- Vos. Tailgate, you around? I think we gotta find out a way to cut and run.

[riptide knows, deep down, he should save the humans in a situation like this. like autobots are supposed to, like skids said to megatron, but he's too scared to even consider staying and fighting the djd. that would be suicide. he's being a coward, and he hates it.]

Everyone else! It was nice knowing you. Sorry about your planet. Maybe try to focus on space flight before the rest of the DJD show up and kill you all?

Seems that there's justifiable discontent brewing but how long has this been simmering underneath? How many of you have just gone along with what you've been told without question or protest - and, again, for how long?

Just being brought here has been the cause of great inconvenience. I'm not even going to mention all the random acts of chaos or criminal activity that goes on. You've seen it or heard about it.

I'm sure many of us here don't like being told what to do and when to do it.

The galaxy is at war where I come from but there were more opportunities and more choice. Things made a kind of sense if you knew where you fit.

Change is in the air here. For the better or not? Do you want to wait and see, let it happen or make it happen? I guess we'll find out what stirs up and where all the pieces finally fall.

[ Skeets is floating in front of a mirror, using the network with his brain because he can't be bothered to hold the communicator today. Yes, he is a football-sized small gold robot. ]

Hello Network, if we haven't met already my name is Skeets. Professor Skeets, actually. I teach history at De Chima University.

Recently I have been considering teaching something else, so this post is meant to gauge interest -- are you from a world that doesn't have the Internet? Are you from an era before and after contemporary Internet culture? Are you too old to get it? If you're interested, I can explain the Internet to you.

[As the video comes on, Major's leaning in a bit close, trying to get his comm to stand on its end, but the thing keeps sliding over at varying speeds. He sighs, eventually picking the thing up and holding it out with his arm extended.

He offers a shrug as an explanation.
]

I'm - never sure if I'm supposed to like, greet people when I start one of these? Well, to be on the safe side ... hey! How are you? I'm doing all right, thanks.

Okay, now that's out of the way, I have two questions for the folks here. .. They are completely unrelated, but of sort of equal importance. [He's walking under some trees that are out-of-shot, but the sunlight pouring through the canopies are sun-dappling Major's face as he moves.]

One: I'm a millenial so I'm pretty good with technology, but - these things sort of elude me a little bit. Is there a way for me to like .. go anon on this thing? Or change my name? Or just use a different one entirely? Or do I have to use my actual name on the network?

Two: Does anyone know if there's a copy of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark lying around? Could be a VHS, for all I care, so long as there's a VCR, too. But I'm not picky; could be anything, just as long as it's watchable!

If you're still listening, thanks! And if you have answers to my questions, I owe you a drink or something!

Soooooooo hypothetical question for y'all

What are your thoughts on secret identities??

I mean, we're all pretty recognizable here just because we're imPorts, yeah? If you don't really have the whole 'mild-mannered civilian' thing going for you anymore, and everyone knows that you have powers because of the imPort thing, is it worth the trouble to keep your secret identity and your regular joe identity separate?

AGAIN, I CANNOT STRESS HOW 100% HYPOTHETICAL THIS IS

consider this a thought exercise!!
