AS THE WAR THAWS...

[When the imPorts open their comms, they will come face to face with an uncharacteristic image, ensuring that even imPorts who attempt to ignore broadcasts at large will see it. This is, after all, relevant to each and every imPort.

The image is nothing more than a black screen with white text superimposed on it: STATE OF NATIONAL EMERGENCY.

After a moment, the image will be quickly replaced by one of L. Chases, seated at her desk, hands folded in front of her. Her expression may be grim, but it is firm, and there is nothing but ferocity behind her stare.]


Attention all imPorts, [she starts off, voice crisp and clear.]

We are now in a state of national emergency. As of January 20th, the USSR has officially declared war on the United States, effectively endangering not only the people of America, but the world as a whole. In this time of need there is a strong chance we may have to call upon you, imPorts, to do your duty in protecting your own.

As a part of this declaration of war, the USSR has abducted approximately fifty imPorts, a number which may yet continue to grow. We do not yet know how this was accomplished, but you have our word that our intelligence is active and ready to uncover what form of technology could abduct you from afar.

We are currently in talks with foreign aid and the UN. Retaliation is a risky prospect, but I assure you, we will retaliate. That time draws near, and when it does, we will be asking for your assistance.

Until then, stay aware, alert, and cautious, imPorts. We cannot afford to lose any more of you, and more importantly, your fellows cannot afford it.

[And with that, her broadcast ends. There will be no replies.]

If anyone can get a hold of Jaime Reyes or Karen Starr, let me know.
deadkord: (Why is there never any creamer?)

[personal profile] deadkord 2016-01-21 07:35 am (UTC)(link)
[ Well, shit. ]

Have you been by their places, or Karen's office? What about the garage where Jaime works?

[ Not that he's worried or anything, honest. ]
you_tried: (It's a bathroom floor kind of morning.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-21 07:40 am (UTC)(link)
Not yet. I'll check Karen's first, then swing by Heropa.
deadkord: (That’s between you and your conscience.)

[personal profile] deadkord 2016-01-21 07:45 am (UTC)(link)
Keep me posted. I'll keep an ear out for anyone else we know who isn't accounted for.

Teeeeeed, I had to feed the cat!
deadkord: (They looked smaller in the catalog)

[personal profile] deadkord 2016-01-21 07:50 am (UTC)(link)
Do you need to go to the hospital??
you_tried: (Make sure your heart doesn't explode.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-21 08:00 am (UTC)(link)
I think I'll pull through...

... how often do cats need to eat?
deadkord: (Is it possible it just needs salt?)

[personal profile] deadkord 2016-01-21 11:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Every day. Maybe twice a day? I don't know, I don't like cats.

I can't get a hold of her at all. You don't think she's been taken...do you?
you_tried: (Just threw up off a chairlift.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-21 09:54 am (UTC)(link)
It's looking that way. She's not at home... and her cat was hungry.
tactile_telekinesis: ([90s] Heck is this)

[personal profile] tactile_telekinesis 2016-01-21 09:58 am (UTC)(link)
Damn it! We have to get her back. [He pauses a moment.]

You did feed it, right?
you_tried: (Masturbated to my own Facebook picture.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-22 12:17 am (UTC)(link)
At risk of my own life, yes!

And don't worry. We'll get her back.
tactile_telekinesis: ([90s] And your point is?)

[personal profile] tactile_telekinesis 2016-01-22 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
Did you do battle? Or creep around hoping you didn't disturb it?

We all will. Don't even think of leaving me out. I'll just follow you any way.
you_tried: (Stranded. Come find us. Bring an egg.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-22 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
I plead the fifth. But I'm just saying, I need a band-aid.

And hey, don't worry about that. You want in? You're in. I'm not gonna go all I am the night, I work alone here.
tactile_telekinesis: ([90s] Blah blah blah)

[personal profile] tactile_telekinesis 2016-01-23 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
Oh damn, you fought and the cat won. That's gotta be such a massive blow. Truly sorry. But hey, chicks dig scars, so maybe it'll leave one.

Okay, good. I was thinking ore because the whole 'but you're a kid thing' that seems to be a popular cop out. But thanks. Means a lot you're good with it.

Damn. Karen, too?

[a few minutes later]

Just checked the office. She's not there, and no one's seen her.
you_tried: (She hit me with my own penis and it hurt)

Figured. Thanks for checking. I didn't want to assume the worst, but...
superposition: (And why?)

[personal profile] superposition 2016-01-22 12:48 am (UTC)(link)
Trust me, this isn't the worst. We can still get her back.
you_tried: (There's no heterosexual way to say this.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-22 04:30 am (UTC)(link)
Okay, okay, so "the worst" in giant air quotes.

Mr. Jaime is missing?

[shoot. shoot. she's only just met him, but he's too nice to be kidnapped.]
you_tried: (I'm trying to decide if I have scruples.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-22 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
Looks like it. He's not at home, not at work, not answering his messages...
monster_san: Chibi going oh dear (How very awkward)

[personal profile] monster_san 2016-01-22 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
I see.

Is it too much to hope that his personable manner hides someone who is completely unreliable when it comes to communication?
you_tried: (Life got in the way of Sexy Saturday.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-22 10:57 am (UTC)(link)
Believe me, I wish. But in my experience, the kid's pretty darn responsible.
monster_san: Worried look (This might not be super great)

[personal profile] monster_san 2016-01-25 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
A poorly-timed virtue. And a bloodhound would be totally impractical in this situation.
you_tried: (I'm going to college on Yahoo Answers.)

[personal profile] you_tried 2016-01-26 09:40 am (UTC)(link)
I mean, maybe a magic bloodhound... which wouldn't be the stupidest thing I'd ever heard of.
