[ The camera is not focused on Laurie's face, but rather her hands, in which she holds a paper cootie catcher. The colors written on the four outside flaps are RED, BLUE, GREEN, and YELLOW. Simple enough setup, right?

She moves the camera up, then, smiling wide and nervous before her expression settles. This is as close to public speaking as she gets. ]

I know it's kinda childish, but I thought it might be fun. Ask a question --Um, a yes or no question-- and pick a color.

For anyone that was friends with Thomas - tall guy who's hardwired to throw himself directly into danger, asks way too many questions - I just wanted to let you guys know he's been sent home. Ported out, I guess. It's been a few days since I've been able to find him or get in touch with him, so I'm guessing that means he's not here.

Also, unrelated
[ noooo it's not it 100% has to do with Thomas leaving but shhh ] but I was wondering if there's anyone here that would be willing to help me out with my telepathy. I know there's a school I can enroll in, but I'm not sure I'm ready for that. I'm used to more of a one-on-one thing, when it comes to that.

Any kind of help would be great, even if it's just a one-time thing. I just need some help relearning how to focus.

[ Jello. Jello EVERYWHERE. The comm video snaps on to show some teenaged boy's room with the floor absolutely covered in the stuff, a solid three inches of it or more, like the world's weirdest blanket of snow. At least all of his tech has been moved so as not to damage anything important, but ...

Wow, he's never going to get the smell of jello out of his room. Never. ]

Wh - what the hell is this! Who -

[ The video doesn't show the speaker, but his name is kind of at the top of the post. Realization hitting in three ... two ... ]

[Oh look, a new post on the imPort communicator! Although this time, there seems to be no ID attached to the post, it's entirely anonymous. It's pretty late at night on the 25th, surely some people will be up.]


How safe do you really think you are?

Warning: Picture heavy under the cut )

[OOC: Aaaand Inumuta is currently infected with the Hornet's Mind Clone of Miguel Rodriguez right now! So he's not exactly himself at the moment. Right now, Inumuta's doing the whole anonymous schtick, but if any hackers/people capable of tracking him down do any digging whatsoever, they'll find him. He's intentionally not covering his tracks as well as he could have because as a Hornet, he isn't shying away from any jabs he can get at Imports.

So, action is possible, but please try to coordinate with other players in this! Feel free to threadjack, whatever!

Side note: Please forgive my typos, and I'm sorry for the poor choice in pictures for some characters, if I used a picture you don't like and want a new one, send me a link. Also also, I will update this post with a few more characters once I hear back from a few people to get their final approval from my plotting post.

[ Bradbury doesn't tend to post to the Network much -- but for those who've never seen him before, he's probably never looked so happy, either. Or like he's vibrating with energy, practically bursting with something to say. ]

First of all, congratulations to the imPorts that got voted into office. I'm sure the community'll be better off for your support. But I'm here to talk to you about something a little more important.

[ A pause, for dramatic flair. ]

Valentine's Day.

Now, I know it ain't everyone's favorite holiday -- it definitely wasn't mine after my ex-wife divorced me -- but hear me out. After a while, I realized all it's really about is being able to connect to someone else, finding someone who gets you. My job is helping people make those connections, and if you've seen any of my shows, you know I've got a lot of experience at it.

So, here's the deal: I'm helping Channel Five set up a few blind dates for Valentine's Day, but I'm gonna need people willing to get themselves matched up. It's gonna be recorded, but it's not like you'll have a camera crew following you around to do it, so you'll hardly even notice it's there.

Here's the best part: one couple gets an all-expenses paid trip to Disney World, Germany, France, England, or the Netherlands. Not a bad deal for a couple of hours having fun with someone, right?

If you're interested in signing up, or you know someone who is, go ahead and call this number. We'll get everything sorted out for you.

And if you're wondering if this is for you, give it it a shot anyway. Nothing wrong with taking a chance and putting your heart on the line -- ain't that just one way of proving you're still alive?

[ ooc: Related to this plot! Remember that your character can be signed up by another character (and hell, you can sign them up in their hero identity if you want to) and may be tricked into showing up for a date; feel free to use that post or this one for plotting/scheming! ]

Okay, I probably should have done this a while ago but...

Anybody who can take a hit- or even better, take one and give back just as good- I guess gimme a ring?
I need to get a little bit of practice in.
Might help if you're a little bit fireproof too.
Still working on that one.

If you all tuned into the TV today, I'm sure most of you already know. There's a lot to do, but... well, you know how it is. [ Mitchell looks a little...different. Like there's an energy under his skin, something different. He looks, well, certainly not healthier, but he deffinitely looks happier, in some ways. He's the kind of guy that lives off of the stress of office. ]

So, residents of DeChima, I hope we'll get the opportunity to work well together starting Monday. This, of course, doesn't mean that I wouldn't listen to any import who would like my help, but I'm proud to say I'll be representing any imports who live in the city of DeChima. While I won't be running anything, we have the distinct honor and opportunity to introduce local policies, as well. I won't have much in the way of staff, but if anyone would like to volunteer to help out, please shoot me a line, I'll take all the help I can get.

[ And there's a long pause, before: ]

But I don't want to waste time, either. I'm sure there are plenty of things that you guys want to see changed, I know there's a lot I'd like to change. If you live in DeChima, I'd love to sit down with you, or even just talk with you, about what sorts of meaningful changes we can start enacting right off the bat.

Anyway, I'm here, if anyone needs me. My line's always open, and I'm happy to listen, no matter what it is.

[The sound of the sea and gulls can just about be heard in the background, as well as the chugging of a boat's motor in the background but beyond that, there's an awful lot of noise going on from what sounds like an agitated crowd.

"Murderers! Scum! Evil murderers!"

And now you are treated to the shot of a very perplexed looking man with a scarred, tanned face looking at the communicator as though he still doesn't quite trust what he's been told about it (and he doesn't really).]

I don't know why this Peter bloke's getting his breeches in a bunch about fishing, there ain't nothin' wrong with going out to fish and it ain't enough to-

[A particularly shrill woman with bright purple hair shrieks 'Bastard!' at him and he chuckles.]

Steady on love! My mam and da had me on the right side of the sheets thanks.

[Shaking his head, he turns his attention back to the communicator.]

Friendly lot round these parts, aren't they? Is this the normal welcome us new folk can expect or is it just fishermen they ta- oh Jaysus hang on.

[It seems that one of the PETA protestors with a can of red paint has broken through and is rushing at an older looking sailor with an aim to throw it at him. The communicator is dropped, and there's a brief flash of bright blue sky before it lands and picks up on the sight of our broadcaster, shirtless and tattooed, tackling the protestor, sitting astride him and punching him square in the jaw.]

Piss. Off!

Hey there, imports. [ The video shows a guy with a look on his face that clearly says business. Although there's a smile, it's pretty obvious it's a 'business smile', although the way he dips his head shows off the right side of his face instead of the left. Every now and then, though, he turns slightly, and it's pretty obvious he's got some marks on his face, although they're not prominent. Faded, like scars. (Or from plastic surgery) ]

Anyone from back in the City can attest that this was probably expected, but for those of you who don't know me, I'm Mitchell Hundred. Now back in the City, it was Mayor Hundred, and before that -- where I come from -- it was also Mayor Hundred, [ A slight pause, here. ] and, later on, Ambassador. I'm sure you can tell where this is going, if you followed the news at all.

Like the other candidates who posted here have said, they're electing ambassadors, and if you've been around De Chima, I'm sure you've seen the posters, and heard the ads. I thought I'd take my time to get here, since most of you know who I am, and what my preferred career choice is.

So, if you're in De Chima, tell me what you'd like us to work on. I know the environment of the city, and I've spent quite some time in there. For those of you who own businesses, what kind of support would help you the most? If you want to, what do you need? If you have no interest in it, what issues matter to you?

I'd like to be your ambassador, so tell me exactly what kind of ambassador you'd like to have, so we can work together, if I'm elected.

Okay, wait

[ A young woman has her arms crossed tight over her chest; arms flexed out and shoulders squared off with her feet kicked up on a dining room table in one of the registered housing units. Her bottom lip is pushed out in an impressive pout and with her posture taut as a bow string she looks fit to break the table she's reclining against. ]

Saving the world, maintaining peace - sure, uh huh. This all absolutely falls under my job description as the Ava- [ Her cheekbones flush red and she cocks her head with a sharp exhale, biting down the last word before it could come out in full. ] - Never mind. Not important.

But you know what is important? This totally killed my vacation.

[ Her eyes then look sidelong to something out of frame when a deep, labored panting that sounded like it was coming from a massive source.

She frowns and apologizes to whatever is breathing so heavily before leaning back into frame.

If this device whatever is so useful - can someone tell me where to get food for a two ton polar bear dog?

Last person I asked just said 'google it.'

As if I know what that means.
