[ Peggy has been hesitant to post to the network before now, at first because she was new to the technology, later because she found reason not to trust it. But today she has information to share, and this is the most efficient way to do it. She sits before the camera, her back straight, shoulders square. ]

On Friday evening, I — along with a fellow imPort — encountered one of the Hornets responsible for the attack on the prison. He revealed that the Hornets have planned a series of thefts in De Chima to take place this coming weekend. Specifically, they have targeted engineering companies, with a special interest in those that manufacture generators. I don't know how they intend to carry out these thefts, or why. My hope is that sharing this information here will hinder their plans. I will also be visiting and warning the potentially targeted companies soon.

The security footage from the prison suggests that there were several Hornets running around Heropa that night. If any of you were able to find and speak with them, I encourage you to share anything you might have learned with us.

[ A few seconds pass, and it seems that she is finished speaking. In fact, she reaches for the communicator, ready to turn off the recording. Her hand pauses midair, then she lowers it. ]

On an unrelated note, if anyone knows of a definitive way to confirm that someone was ported out of this world, it would be much appreciated.

[ It's a long shot, she knows, but she has to ask. ]

Hi, it's Barnaby again. I realize many of us are still recovering from this weekend's rescue efforts, but since people expressed interest in the CPR and first aid certification classes, I thought it would be good to follow up with more information.

The Red Cross is willing to offer a course entitled "Responding to Emergencies". It provides a comprehensive skill set to anyone interested in learning how to save a life. Upon completion, you'll be granted a 2-year certification in both First Aid and CPR/AED. In addition, you'll be prepared to respond to a variety of emergencies involving infants, children and adults.

Course modules include: First Aid, Adult CPR/AED, Pediatric CPR/AED, Injury Management, and Disease Transmission Prevention.

Classes will be held at the Nonah Community Center on the following days*:

February 28th: 9:00 am - 5:30 pm
March 7th: 9:00 - 5:30 pm
March 14th: 9:00 - 5:30 pm
March 21st: 9:00 am - 5:30 pm

In other words, every Saturday from February 28th until March 21st, for a total of four days. The course itself is 30 hours long, but a one-hour lunch break is scheduled for each class day.

(*classes may be rescheduled in the event of an emergency, inclement weather, or other extenuating circumstances.)

Non-cardholders who have some prior experience are also encouraged to look into scheduling a skills check between now and then, although this NOT mandatory. Please note that you may only take a skills check once. If you fail, you'll be referred to the certification instructors in Nonah. Anyone who's interested should send a message to:
[Insert contact information for the skills check here!]

How much does it cost?
Responding to Emergencies: $150
Skills check: $120

That said, the Red Cross is offering fee reimbursements for registered imPorts who agree to do some volunteer work.

I realize this leaves unsettled imPorts at a disadvantage, though, so if anyone is willing to sponsor an unsettled imPort, your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Likewise, any unsettled imPorts who want to enroll but can't afford the tuition are encouraged to request help, either in response to this message or in private.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.

ETA: People interested in signing up for the course can do so here:
[Link is included here, how convenient is that!]


And on a completely unrelated note, since I don't want spam the network, I'll just go ahead and mention that Kotetsu T. Kaburagi's birthday is on Tuesday, February 17th. Since it falls on the same day as Mardi Gras, we won't be having a birthday party, but please take a moment to offer him your well wishes if you get a chance.

Thank you for reading this.

[Dr. Caitlin Snow has been staring at her communicator and biting her bottom lip for the past couple minutes, feeling... let's say concerned. She has every reason to be concerned, after all, since she's not only been kidnapped to another dimension and given metahuman abilities but she's also the only member of Barry Allen's support team present, which is... going to be a challenge. Especially without the resources of STAR Labs at her disposal. But right now, one of her primary concerns is a little more selfish.]

How would you handle testing a power that would be... incredibly unethical to use?

It's been a long time. How has it been? What have I missed?

Sorry. I just realized: I don't care. I do care about the fires, however.


[ She's been in a neighborhood, slowly gathering up flames. It occurred not long after she belatedly visited the registration ceremony. (Spoiler: she didn't sign up this time.) Half the time she's tempted to contribute to the fire, but the other half just wants her to just lay down on the pavement and relax, enjoy the heat and screams. As a result, she's conflicted on what she wanted to do. ]

And for once, the fires are not my doing. A small regret, because I really want to burn something. It's better than freezing to death, I say.

Do you know what it is like to have some parts of your body completely frozen, and have them soon broken off? I do.

Burning is a mere joy compared to that. But I'm a dragon, so I can't burn. How fortunate of me.


[ She would frolic in the flames, even. ]

I don't think there's much I can do in this burning city. I best be going back.

But if I find even one coin missing from my lair I will set the entire southeastern region on fire. If you don't believe me, ask Kang, if he's still here. If he's not here, then you better hope no coins are taken from my hoard.

[The image clicks on with a back drop of smoke and rubble, sirens in the background nearly washing out Cu's voice as he looks into the camera. Wistful boredom droops his face despite the chaos going around him. Not that many of you would know, but you're getting a good look into the prison that was recently the victim of a bombing.]

Saving people s'all fine and dandy, but it's not exactly a very compelling pursuit anymore, is it? When I was first ported in, fresh in The City, making a hero out of yourself was a fun diversion. Get some laughs, draw some blood, maybe some appreciative company. [His eyebrows literally waggle at that.]

Now everything has strings attached. Now everything is so... political. It totally takes the fun out it. Help one person, you're blamed for the doom of another. No matter how hard you try you're responsible for everyone's suffering. Especially when the system sets you up to fail. Even when the people of that universe hated us it felt like were were fighting the good fight.

Ah, but most of you probably don't understand what I'm saying. Pity. I guess until we find out just WHY we're here I don't see the big need to shoulder the burdens of the entire world. It's just that- Oh ho, speaking of heroing trouble. Or should I say heroine trouble?

[The camera swings around to give the viewers a top down view of a glowing, vaguely female shaped blur with orange horns limping by.]

Anyways, I dunno what else to say. Maybe I'm just getting jaded. Several lifetimes of bullshit will do that to a guy. I guess until I get it sorted out I'll go shift some rubble and get berated for saving convicts instead of elementary students. Fuck me, right? Or maybe I'll go slap some sense into people more out of sorts than me while I still can?

[ the view of the area behind barry looks like— well it looks like a bench because barry feels like soaking up the fresh air and honestly if these conversations go south, he feels like it might be good to be out in the open where he can run easily without upsetting everything else. see, there's a part of him, a very big part of him that knows asking this is a bad idea. if the reaction oliver had gotten when he just existed was any indication, this is, in fact, a very no good bad idea. one he probably shouldn't indulge himself with and yet here he is totally indulging himself. for science and for his own piece of mind.

but mostly science. ]


So. How many of you recognize the name Barry Allen? [ there's a pause and the world's longest sigh before he says anything else, because he realizes he can't even frame this as him asking for someone else because his id says his name. no this is just barry allen asking how many people recognize just his name. ] I don't— You can tell me how or not, I'm easygoing as far as stories like that go, but consider this a survey with me asking one question. [ ...this was such a bad idea. moving on to equally important stuff. ]

Oh yeah! Before I forget, if you live in residence thirteen in Heropa, hi. I haven't actually gone in there yet but I think I have roommates. I'll be there in a minute, but hi before you actually see me in person. [ "minute", ha. then there's this half pause before: ] And does anyone know what exactly being a crime show fact checker entails? I mean I deal with crime scenes at home so I know what they're supposed to look like! But if I'm going to be checking if some crime is real because it's a true crime show— that's a little different obviously. And a bit exploitative so I might not be as comfortable with that.

So about this heroing... it feels weird to me to act like I can call myself a 'hero' when all I do for the most part is get up and go to work every day. So I was wondering if someone wanted to spar with me, for training purposes. Anything goes, to first blood. If you can't fight but want to learn, too, I can teach you what I know. Might not be as much as other people, but it's a starting point.

Anyway, let me know.

[The ID reads Green Lantern and he's sitting on the rooftop of some building and eating a sandwich.]

Word of warning, if you go off planet they'll threaten to cut you off and effectively leave you to die. So if you leave make sure you have something that isn't dependent on your abilities, technology from your world counts in that category so build a new ship.

Also this universe is quiet. I couldn't find a single inhabited planet or get any transmissions. So to answer that question, we are in fact alone in this universe.

[He takes a bite and chews on it while he sets up a hologram of the region in space he explored. In case the ID didn't make it clear, the hologram is green. Green everywhere.]

Anyway a while back there was a discovery that this lady mapped out a section of space and noted down a couple of stars that don't actually exist now. [The relevant points glow brighter.] I checked them out and there's nothing there. At all. Something that big doesn't just vanish, but whatever happened there wiped it out so completely I couldn't get anything on my scans.

If anyone wants to look them over be my guest, but I doubt you'll find anything new or even find anything that can handle that much raw data.

--hold while I transfer you to the appropriate department. [The voice is polite, almost cheery. The video cuts on and what can be seen at first is...well a desk. In a cubicle. A desk with a computer with a large phone to the side with many buttons and some of them are red and blinking. And the phone itself is being placed on the dock as a few buttons are pushed. There is a bit of a reflection in the bright screen of the computer, blond hair, pale skin...but it's hard to get a clear view.]

So of all the jobs they could have oh-so-generously given me they decided that this was what best suited my talents. I don't know whether they are playing a prank on me or if I should be insulted. I'm leaning towards insulted.

[Definitely not as cheery as when she was speaking to whoever that was over the other phone, but it's more frustration than anything. She finally turns the phone around so the camera is catching her, short blonde hair brushed back from one ear by a thin headset with a microphone and ear piece attached and blue eyes looking decidedly bored. And there is an unintentional (maybe) shot of a white blouse with the top few of buttons opened up--a shirt that obviously wasn't made with her size in mind.]

I know I'm a little new to the interdimensional "borrowing" going on around here, but is this really what I have to look forward to?

{Except no she's not and this is her slowly finding way to make her own entertainment. She's playing along...for now.]

I have fifteen minutes left on my break [that she just decided to give herself], someone make this worth getting out of bed.

Shit, so. Let me get this straight...

[Well, for one thing, you need to straighten out your camera there, Bull. The big Qunari is holding it upside down, affording viewers a lovely look at the underside of his scruffy chin. And a couple scars -- one that looks a little more picked at than the rest.]

[Oh, and the horns. Did we mention the horns? And the fact that, as he's walking down the street, he's a good head and shoulders taller than everyone else.]


All this... metal crap. The stuff that moves. The... thing here, in my hand. This is all normal to you guys?

I can't be the only one who doesn't know what he's doing. Please say that. It looks really bad if anyone saw--

[Like if he was being recorded.]

[He squints his one eye down at the screen. Like he's waiting for an immediate response. Then when nothing immediately pops up, he starts mashing buttons. Or trying to hang up. Those huge fingers aren't good with tiny buttons.]


-- oh come on. You're magic, aren't you? Work.

[ the girl on screen is blurred around the edges, as if she's fading out of focus, though the more she speaks, the more solid she becomes. she's at a bus stop, holding a large coffee, file crammed under her arm as she huddles inside her leather jacket. ]

Alright, mates. Now, passing over the part where I’ve somehow ended up in America inexplicably, among other confusing things, let’s talk food. I’m starving and a tourist, so let’s have it, people. I want recommendations for everything. Including perhaps where to find a winter jacket, yeah?

[ and alex looks dead serious. she tilts her cup, coffee sloshing, slouching back against the bench. ]

I'm meant to be in Residence Four around here, or that's what the file said. Maurtia Falls in bloody Pennsylvania. I've no luck when it comes to travel, do I?

[ there's a pause while alex takes a sip of her coffee and grimaces. ]

Let’s revise the earlier bit, shall we? Restaurants and food recommendations first, then someone fill me in on this whole registration piece while I wait for the bus. That’ll have me sorted out, I reckon.

Y'know, I'm beginnin' to think that this stupid thing is necessary for every day life. Barely knew what was goin' on last month.

[He clears his throat.]

So, two things. One, we're lookin' for workers at the Red Branch for mercenary work, must work well with others, please contact Cu Chulainn for more information. Also I think we're looking for people at the bar.

Sorry, I don't do advertisements really. But maybe if you didn't hear him last time? I really recommend ya talk to him. He's a good boss! Better than my last one. And he loves dogs!

[Is this a dating profile or a job advertisement? Maybe Cu should be the only one to do advertisements.]

Uh, yeah, speaking of 'love', I wanna know more about this Valentine's Day. I suppose it should be obvious, with all the harts and all, but, might as well ask. You're all a lot smarter than me, so I don't wanna get this mixed up. Unless... I already did?

Shoot, I'm terrible at this stuff. Dunno why there's all these different days for things anyways! Can't you just spend time with people whenever you want? Why's there gotta be a day in the calendar for love or gettin' time with your family? Back home, I spent all my time with mine. This whole job thing is a sham.

[There's a small grumbling.]

So, yeah. Anyone have any dogs or animals they need takin' care of? I need a moment with 'em. Do it for free, I'm great. Ask Cu Chulainn if you wanna. He'll vouch for me.

[Hey there, everyone, got another new imPort hitting the network for the first time. Another child imPort too, if the voice is anything to go by.

The commuicator ID reads "Megaman.EXE." It also reads"Hub Hikari," a fact that he is blissfully unaware of. Feel free to enlighten him.]


Finally.


[There's a relieved sigh and a quiet thunk on the other end of the line. Getting the communicator to do what he wanted took him a lot longer than he would have liked. Being on this side of a GUI is so awkward, how do humans even manage it? It's part of why he went for voice instead of video or text - not having to stare at the screen the whole time hurts his eyes less.

His voice is a bit muffled when he continues, and he sounds very, very tired.]


So, um. This is probably a silly question, but...is it normal to have headaches all the time?

I mean, I know it's not normal-normal. It's just...they said the thing that brought me here didn't know how to handle me, that there were "leftovers" from my real body. But I don't really know what that means, or what being human is supposed to feel like, so I don't know if what I've been feeling is normal or if I should be concerned or what. I don't think they'd just let me go if there was something wrong with me, but...I don't know. I'm kind of new to this.

[It's not really a lie. He was only human for about a year, and he's been a Netnavi for over a decade now. This is so far off his concept of "normal" that it's not even funny. Especially since he has a very good reason to be paranoid about his health.]

--oh, almost forgot. My name's Megaman. Nice to meet everyone.

[ about as brief as it comes, her face level the whole time ]

I've been given to understand this is a different universe from what I've known. I request independent verification.

If anyone knows the names Chaiva Egloff or Andrew Hussain I would ask for immediate contact.

Thank you.

action.

for maurtia falls #004 residents.


[ she might hate everything about this, but she's been given a place to stay so she's here, a bag strung over her shoulder and her face and body set to rigid. over the next few days she's mostly to be seen either cooking in the kitchen (things she leaves in the fridge afterwards) or vanishing into her room.

you have a great roommate, guys. ]

for others.
 
[ she can be found around the city, hair pulled up tight and communications always in her hand as she searches. what she's looking for exactly, well - that can't be found. doesn't meant she isn't trying.

her look is always a little sharper than she means it to be. ]

This is Special Agent Roslyn Small of the Department of Bureau Safety in the FBI.

[ so what if that hasn't been her title for months? she gave enough to them that she's entitled to use it at least this one, confused as hell and still reeling from everything that had just happened. ]

I require immediate transportation back to New York City and contact with the Bureau of Department Safety in Quantico Virginia, specifcally Andrew Hussain. Also Chava Egloff if possible.

Your cooperation is appreciated.


[ they are all the people she wants. it will be enough, if only she can reach them. ]

[molly is in the forensics lab, white coat shrugging off one shoulder and a thoughtful look on her face. there's an open bag of crisps on the table near her, and some of that classic 50s music is playing in the background, take your pick. something is whirring in the background, and a real detective will probably guess that she's waiting for it to stop doing that.]

It seems like new people show up here about as often as they did in the City. It's so strange, how things like that make it seem so--I don't know, I don't think homey is the right word. I mean, well, it's been months and it sees like things are falling back into the same routine. Except for, you know, the clothing and music and general aesthetic.

[there's a ding behind her, and the whirring ends she perks up]

Oh, the blood's done!

[she stands, and starts towards it.]

The technology is definitely a nice perk, though. I guess it's from all the reality-jumping going on.
