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. )

[One in the morning was a great time to post to the network, right? Bela is restless and needs a distraction.]

Space ships. The undead. Magic. Monsters. Time travel.

Face it, a lot of us come from very strange worlds. Now I am not going to spend my time listing off every single weird thing I've heard since I arrived over two years ago, but I am curious about your experiences, dear imPorts.

The only things I haven't personally experienced are space ships, the undead and time travel so if anyone wants to elaborate on those, I am all ears. Although, I have it on good authority that space travel is especially thrilling. Also dangerous.


[It's a miracle that she is able to text.]

Indulge a girl won’t you, network? I know that some are you are bound to be awake right now.

I'll even say please if you want.

Ciao.

[ Kaneki is too much of a mess to give you video or even audio but he doesn't care about his own health when there are things to share and do, so he will make it a text instead ] By now, I'm sure most of us know there were clones aroud. [ he can't say everyone noticed it, he knows there are some more distracted than others looking at you, Junseo ] I hope these past two weeks weren't that insane to you.

Regardless, while that happened, a group of imPorts were trying to find information. It wasn't about Heaven Scent and the clones at first, but about DARPA and OTO as a follow-up of our mission back in February. OTO used to be DARPA'S branch and was responsible for creating imPocreats that attacked a Swear-In in 2016, however after we talked to some of DARPA's people we found that OTO defected because they weren't satisfied that their dangerous projects kept getting shut down. They are considered traitors and though their laboratories are back in Liechtenstein which is a Russian ally, OTO appears to be apolitical and anational and appear to love money.
[ so yes, they highest bidder often gets their support ] They appear to be an international corporation based in Liechtenstein or runs its money through their markets.

while we were trying to find clues and evidence of OTO in US territory, we came across an oil baron in Mexico named Arturo Campana, who had been in contact with OTO. Upon further research-
[ by research kaneki means: they raided his office ] -we found that Campana also had contact with Heaven Scent as well with one Audric Müller, which was a name we found on OTO's files back in February.

OTO and Heaven Scent are related. In fact, Heaven Scent, who started all of this mess with clones, is a subsidiary of OTO who seems to dislike imPorts quite a lot.

We found a handwritten address in Richmond, Virginia, and this address is to an industrial complex that we are certain is run by Heaven Scent. We believe it's their main facility and laboratories, and it's of our interest to stop them to avoid more evil clones running around and trying to kill us. However, our group is small and we can not do this on our own. We need more people to help us raid and shut down this place as soon as possible - the government is willing to support us on this as well. If you are interested in helping, we could use more hands and power, because we are sure this is not going to be easy.

If you have any other questions about all of this, just ask. I'll try to answer what I know.
[Kaneki will also link to the past February investigation, if anyone wants to know a bit more about OTO]



Unrelated: The :Re Café will be closed until the 15th August. But if there is anything you really need, contact me anyway, I will get it for you. [ he is talking to his special clients]

[ There's a kid sitting on screen with a opaque plastic cup with a slightly less opaque bendy straw sipping something dark out of that cup. He's staring blankly at a spot right below the camera for several seconds before-- ]

Wait... people have evil clones now?

[ Yes... no, yes. He's dead serious with that question. ]

[There is a level of determination in him that hadn't existed during the election. Seeking a city position or power of any kind didn't sit well with him, but helping others was in his nature. Maybe not in this form, but it was more natural than the other.

He was at the edge of the De Chima forest preserve, seated in front of a farm house. For those that have been there, it's Lucy Pevensie's, now empty and quiet.]


With the election over, it's time to focus on the rest of the citizens and imPorts that are in need of help. There is a farmhouse that was used to house a number of residents, now abandoned. My sister, Sansa Stark and I have decided to purchase the home and convert it into a shelter for the homeless. It will have a vegetable garden and offer training for various skills that will help them find jobs, eventually allowing them to move into their own homes.

All of this is dependent on the good will of the citizens. We will be in need of donations, both monetary and supplies. We will also need those with construction skills to help us renovate and refurbish the farm house. You will be compensated.

My sister and I will answer any questions you might have. Thank you.

Unless you want the clueless public to decide who's the best dress, I suggest you message me. I'd rather have imPort submitted content about imPorts than being forced to read anything that might come from the same fingertips as that pile of bear poop disguised as a script.

I have something I've been working on. When are you available?

[ Cisco is trying his best to put his best foot forward with this advertisement, so he's going out of his way to actually capitalize words and use proper punctuation. Be proud of him. ]

Ladies and Gentlemen of the ImPort community, my name is Cisco Ramon, and I'm here to offer my services to you. The Porter brings us here, gives powers to those of us who don't already have them, and the Government wants us to use those powers to fight crime as heroes. For some people, that's just another Tuesday. But there's a whole subsection of the ImPort community that doesn't come with pre-made costumes or alternate identities.

Ramon Tech is here to help.

Back home, I outfitted Central City's heroes with the clothes and tech they needed to fight criminal metahumans. We're talking the Flash, Kid Flash, Jesse Quick, Vibe, and others. My tech has made it to other cities, times, and alternate Earths. But you don't have to take my word for it. I have examples of my work to show you:

[ let’s start with important things. After a sigh, he finally starts: ]

Hinami-chan has left. I know some of you know a bit about our world, but I want to assure you that she is fine. [ well. As much as she can be given the situation ] I come from three years ahead of her and she has grown to be an amazing person, strong and still very sweet. She is alright. [ And that’s why this isn’t as difficult as he thought it would be. Because of course Hinami couldn’t live here forever, but at least Kaneki knows how she is now. ]

Also, most of my employees were ported out, so if anyone would be interested in helping out at the :Re Café, spots are open. Until then, the coffee shop will only open from 4pm to 2am. [ it’s an unusual schedule, but of course he is thinking of the vampire clients and similar ]

That aside- I have been here for almost three years and I realize that I barely know anything about computers and technology. [ he means hacking. ] I should have done this long ago – is anyone willing to teach me how to hack and how to work around with technology? I can pay, if necessary, and I’m quick learner. [ VERY quick, actually. Which will be very helpful ]

[The video comes on, revealing a very unsteady view of what appears to be the inside of an elevator shaft. As the video comes into focus again, it centers on one Lance--and the back of Keith's head. Lance is in blue, Keith in red.]

Hey everyone. I'm Lance--[The video shifts enough to catch Keith's profile. A scowl clearly present--achieving the angle for this shot is probably not comfortable. It shifts again to highlight the fact that they are in fact climbing up the elevator shaft ala Emperor's New Groove...just with actual clothing on.]And this is Keith...Welcome to Jackass.

Lance are you serious? Put that away you need both your hands for this!

[The feed pans back to Lance, an amused and easy going grin present on his face.] Lighten up Keith! We're perfectly--[And that statement is cut off by a sudden slip in footing.] Okay we were perfectly balanced...

[Keith groans, and leans his head back against Lance's.] Look we're not going to get out of the elevator shaft if you don't stop filming and put that away.

All right all right...[Lance takes a glance over his shoulder before pulling the camera in close, taking the chance to stage whisper.] For the record--Keith's the real jackass...

LANCE! [The feed finally goes dead, either from a hasty attempt on Lance's part, or Keith finally managing to make a grab for it--it's a mystery.]

Hello? My name is Sansa Stark.

[ Right now the video is zoomed in to show Sansa from the shoulders up but it's easy enough to pick up on the fact that she is outside somewhere and there are people around her. There are soft murmurs and the occasional noises that sound like someone taking pictures. She is doing her best to ignore it all, though, focusing on the camera with a tense expression. ]

If anyone out there knows anything about flying, I could use your help.

[ She almost hates to ask for help because she has been doing her best to fly under the radar (haha). Except it seems that she can't anymore and it becomes clear why when she turns to someone so she can hand them her device. When she takes a few steps back, one can see the wings stretching from her back. Magnificent wings that are so dark they appear black but one could almost pick up on the shimmers of red as well.

Glancing over her shoulder, she watches as they stretch enough that the small crowd that has gathered around her needs to move back. Focusing back on the camera, she frowns. ]


I don't know how to control them.

[The video, when it begins, is on a loop: three minute segments of anonymous space, with a steady stream of white noise.

The white noise continues until, eventually, it is broken by a voice thick with electronic distortion.]


Hello, imPorts.

The natives here are more than happy to believe that their government is looking out for their best interest. The same cannot be said for us, the imPorts: we who were dragged here from our homes, assigned houses, powers, jobs. Categorized, classified, tracked, yes, and monitored, paid off within a meager system of incentivization and reward, motivated by our own complacency to both sit down and shut up. From the dawn of imPort history it has been left up to us, the imPorts, to figure out this whole new life beneath these new and foreign stars. And does the government care? No. Not as long as you follow their rules. Do they care about our best interests? No. They only care that we abide by their rules.

We are the Constellation, and we are here to tell you that we do not believe in these rules. We have been hard at work figuring out our new lives, for you. And we have found that while we were busy not trusting the government--they have been just as busy not trusting us.

We, the imPorts, are not favored children. We, the imPorts, are not cherished heroes. We are the ones who are watched, always, by the most fixed and sleepless and critical of eyes.

We have a list, imPorts, a list that we are leaking to you now, live, for your perusal and your understanding.

Fuu Hououji. Commander Shepherd. Lucifer. Jacob Taylor. L'Arachel. Daisy Johnson. Count Dooku. The Doctor.

This, fellow imPorts, is a watch list. A list of your brothers and sisters who the government deemed watchworthy. People of interest. Some of them are still with us. Some of them are gone. And whether or not any of these people are worthily deemed dangerous, we want you, the people, to know: this is what happens when you go against the grain. Labeled as agents opposed. Granted their freedom under secret scrutiny. Catch, and tag, and release.

To those who will, inevitably, dismiss this list as inconsequential: stay tuned. This is not the only list.
And this will not be our one and only release to you, our public.

Remember: the only power that we have, imPorts, is the power that we give to ourselves. The only limits to that power are the limits that we allow. Do not forget this. Consider yourselves warned.

[The video of space continues for another minute after the voice ends. The volume of the white noise increases until it is, abruptly, cut off with a burst of static.]



[as per last year's watch list.]

[The video feed opens on a television set currently playing Nonah News. The lead reporters are just finishing up their segment and signing off to the Weather Man. Said Weather Man is a tall, blond man wearing a blue suit. Despite his smile, he looks deeply uncomfortable and nearly misses his mark to begin. Nearly.]

Good morning Nonah! I'm Andrew Pulaski and this is the Weather the Weather Corner! This next week is looking to be a sunny one, reaching highs of about 88 degrees. It's time to put away those winter clothes and break out the summer wear. [Even as he's pointing to the weather chart behind him, he keeps his eyes glued towards the camera-likely focused on reading the prompter.]

The lows are staying at a mild 70 degrees, giving us a lovely week to look forward to. As for the weekend, expect sunshine with no sign of showers in sight. Back to you in the news room!

[As soon as the weather segment ends the TV is shut off and the camera shifts around to face its owner, none other than the Weather Man himself. Andrew smiles a little awkwardly.]

Okay, so it's clear I didn't miss my calling as a Weather Man, but go easy on me. I've never been on TV before. [Pause.] At least not on purpose. But that's what I'm here for; I'm curious if any of you have any tips you can give me. But let me stop you before you say 'don't stare at the prompter the whole time'. I've heard that one loud and clear already.

And, just out of curiosity, how many of you have been assigned a job you're actually qualified for? I'm like ninety percent sure we're being trolled with these job assignments.

Choose your own adventure story.

Ready? Go!

You awaken from a deep slumber to find yourself in a forest. You have no idea how you came to be here, sprawled on ground, but at least you feel well-rested. As you sit up, you realize that you're on the edge of a wide, worn path. Ahead of you, the path forks. To the right, the path continues well-trodden and obviously more well-used. To the left, the path is still clearly visible and unobstructed, but is obviously doesn't get the same amount of use. Do you...

A. take the path to the right?
B. take the path to the left?
C. take the path away from the fork?

For future reference, to anyone out there... if there's a strange murder, or any sort of mystery--call me.

Don't bother if it's a boring one.

I'm taking about locked room mysteries, weird stuff, the inexplicable.

If it's over a 7 I may even personally, actually go outside to have a look.
