[The feed opens with video footage of an empty rabbit hutch, then moves to show signs of forced entry - a broken gate lock, a trampled flower. Then it flips around and Brendan's face is nothing but cold fury, which comes across equally plainly in his voice.]

If whoever stole our rabbits returns them, unharmed, in the next 48 hours, I promise you amnesty. No cops, no charges, I just want them back, no questions asked.

If you don't return them, you won't be able to run far enough, and I promise you, if you hurt them, you will never see me coming and they will never find your bodies.

You stole from the wrong fucking house if you think we're gonna let this slide.

[ Kanaya doesn't look happy. She looks like someone who has spent two days playing a mobile game nonstop, and hated every second of it. But she important things to say about it now. ]

So, I didn't plan to waste any more of my time thinking about this silly game, but after everyone on Bwitter decided that it was worth blowing up my shouts over, I found that it may be worth looking into further. Frankly, much of the content they related of this "Papaya Delirium" stand-in is rather concerning.

After spending far longer playing "Heart Kapow Wow" [ Though she stops short of using air-quotes, she says it with as much disdain as possible, what kind of stupid title is that? ] than I ever intended to spend on as pointless an endeavor as this, allow me to make a few disclaimers. And, for the record, I can't believe this shit has somehow become necessary.

First, stop recommending Hallmark movies to me. I don't care, I don't want to watch them

Second, no, I am not Jason Vorhees. I don't even know who that is.

Third, I'm not a wasp, or any kind of bee. Stop sending me jokes about bees.

Fourth, and perhaps most importantly, no, I do not have an ovipositor. I do not plant eggs in people. I am not seeking a new egg host for my children, I will not lay eggs in you on request, no amount of money you offer me is enough to make me want to roleplay this scenario with you, or even to think about it any more than you've already made me, and thanks so much for that. I don't want to see any art you've made of the event, I don't want to know that you're making art or writing whatever it is you are while stimulating whatever nether-organs your species has evolved. I don't want to know, please stop making me know about these things. You're all disgusting.

And finally, I. Do not. Date. Men. I don't care what your vexing virtual vespine vixen told you. She isn't me, and she isn't real, and I am seriously considering a call to my lawyer to see if something can't be done about her very existence. If you are trying to hit on me over Bwitter, you've already lost. Please stop.

[ She lets out a long exhale, rubbing her temples. Her brows furrow as she considers something, then relax for a moment as she screws up her lips and opens her eyes, then furrows her brows again, dropping her hands and looking back into the camera. ]

Does anyone know how to get my good ending? Do I even have one? It would really figure if I didn't.

Hi? So. A true act of heroism right now would be giving me the address of a falafel place. And maybe letting me onto your Netflix account 'cuz I can't afford it but want to see the new Science Mystery Theatre 3000.

Actually a job might be useful. I can do whatever. My resume doesn't exist but I'm quick on the uptake.

Thanks.

[a few minutes of silence, and then;]

-- Introductions, sure. I'm Magnus Chase. I used to live in a hotel and next to dumpsters before that. I'm from Boston and I don't love nicknames. My favourite colours are black and beige and I know ASL/ASL. I love pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. Whoops, now this sounds like a weird dating profile, so I think I'm done.

I'm like, barely 50% kidding about the falafel/Netflix support. Not kidding at all about the job. So call me maybe.

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.

So how do the rest of you entertain yourselves when you can't have marathon sex to pass the time? Or whatever it is you normally do to keep yourself busy, I suppose.

I should have asked this a week ago, but it would be a good idea to have some suggestions in mind if I get stuck in such an unfortunate situation again.

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. ]

[ When Nate appears on the screen, the communicator is lifted and angled with someone talking in the background. He looks to be seated in the back of a vehicle. Any cuts and scrapes he'd received before he'd arrived were either tended to by a nurse (heeeelllloooo nurse) or had healed on their own. All that remains is the dirt and blood caked on his face and neck, darker stains both his own and belonging to another stuck in the fibers of his shirt.

He makes eye contact with the camera and it's brief, the view of him slipping suddenly, and then the image jerks as the communicator loudly hits the floor. Oops.

Oh crap—

[ His image cuts out just as he's seen reaching down for it. ]

So what's a guy get when he saves the world from a power hungry raging maniac? A folder with a sheet of paper of stuff he already knows.

Which was a bit frustrating, but she knows there's not much she can do about it.

And when she says hello to the network, she's dressed in a damp pickle-shaped costume.]


Uhm, I'm in a pickle. Can someone help me out? ... get it? I'm in a pickle because I'm... dressed... like one... ha, ha, ha...

what with all the crazy stuff that's gone down, i've been thinking about expanding the services the clinic provides.

show of hands, or just replies i guess - who would be interested in being trained in first aid and emergency field medicine? we need more people on the ground when things like this happen, caring for the casualties. native first responders are clearly overwhelmed, but if we can get some people out there who can deal with the danger and the injured, i think that would be a huge benefit.

Hello, Network. To those of you unlucky enough to have yet to make my acquaintance, I'm Cheryl Blossom.

I have a few questions as to the way the world works here--specifically as I've spoken to several who have claimed that those who are dead can come in as ImPorts. If anyone here comes from that particular experience, I'd be very interested in speaking to you. If not, I don't have the time for you.

Secondly, I'm incredibly invested in learning if it's possible to force someone to be Ported in. Someone who's dead back home.

Hypothetically, of course. :)

Also, feel free to follow me on all forms of social media, @CherylBombshell. You won't regret it.

This is Commander Sabriel, of RISE. [The speaker is a young woman, speaking in a clear, commanding tone. There's the sound of papers being shuffled in the background.]

Over the past week, someone with my appearance and at least one of my powers has been running around, giving interviews, and raising the Dead with a form of necromancy unique to my world. While they've retained their living personalities for a time, that time is over. The Dead of my world feed on life force, and grow stronger the more lives they take. They are dangerous foes, and I urge any imPorts in De Chima unable to fight them to find safety immediately, and to help others do the same. [Behind the calm, there's an urgency in Sabriel's voice.] If you are one of the Dead, I urge you to avoid my double- she may lack the bells, but even without them she can exert a certain amount of control over you.

I know some of you come from worlds troubled by the Dead, or have seen films featuring him, so let me prevent some misunderstandings. These are corrupted spirits inhabiting corpses- shooting them in the head won't kill them, and cutting their heads off will just slow them down- you need to destroy the entire body, though taking out the arms and legs will immobilize them unless they abandon the corpse entirely. Their presence will disrupt technology, especially if there's a group of them- watch for blackouts and cars and guns becoming unreliable. Sunlight and running water will destroy them, and going over or under running water will get rid of them as well, so run onto a bridge if you need somewhere safe at night- failing that, fire will scare the weaker ones off.

They're not contagious- don't panic if you're bitten, but get medical attention because the wounds tend to fester. They're also not mindless- their intelligence varies, and they can get stupid if they're desperate, but they have a sense of self-preservation. Don't expect to be able to trick them into jumping into a river. And just because they can talk, don't assume they have any humanity left to appeal to.

But I'm not the only one with a doppelganger. Multiple imPorts have reported people resembling them, with their powers, acting in ways that seem designed to harm their reputation. At this point, At this point, evidence suggests a legion of copies, rather than a single shapeshifter is behind this. And until we identify the source, there's no sign these incidents will stop.

If anyone has more information or further questions, please contact RISE- and honestly, everyone else, if you're willing. The more people who understand what's going on, the better.

[Filtered to RISE members]

We have several related problems. First of all the Dead- and secondly, whoever's been wearing my face. If she's not disposed of, she'll keep creating more Dead. If you see me acting oddly, detain me, and if you can confirm it's not me, incapacitate her. Or kill her if necessary. [There's a cold anger in Sabriel's tone. She has no love for anyone who'd bring the horrors of the Old Kingdom elsewhere.]

Also, if you can identify any of the copies causing problems, make sure to question them- and detain them, if you can do it legally. Maybe one of them will let something slip about what's going on. Veronica, Kang, Yusuke, possibly Inanna and Utena- we need to get a list together. I don't know if there's a pattern yet.

Do you know how much less awesome it is when you have to dehulk just to pick up the phone? How am I supposed to show the bad guys that they don't deserve my full attention if I can't call someone while punching them! They're clearly not thinking about their target demographic here.

And I know what some of you are thinking, 'why don't you do it yourself?'. To which I say do I really have to do everything round here? I had a pretty sweet gig back on my Earth being the most popular Hulk ever and now I gotta start from scratch on top of this crappy phone.

Speaking of which, why am I a counsellor on anger management? Bruce is the expert on that. I don't even know any zen techniques!

[The video feed cuts in Major, sitting in a park of some kind. The lightning indicates that it's sometime in the mid to late afternoon. Ambient noise of birds,
wind, insects buzzing, and people chattering can be overheard. The man in the video glances around and then shifts, holding the communicator out at arm's length at about face height.

He offers a friendly sort of smiled - more a lopsided tug of the lips and uses his other hand to give a right-to-left wave of his hand before letting it fall somewhere out of frame.
]

Uh, hey. [He pauses to think.] So, I've been here a couple days now. The place isn't so bad, overall, though - I mean, aside from the fact that I'm in some .. alternative universe from what I'm used to? - I have to wonder why all of the cities these teleporter things can go to are on the East Coast. What happened to the West Coast? I'm .. sort of curious what Parallel Dimension Seattle looks like. I wonder if it's still full of Starbucks and hipsters.

[He opens his mouth like he's going to start saying something, thinks better of it, then decides to go for it, anyway.] I don't suppose anyone's seen a British guy of Indian descent walking around? Beard? [He makes a "C" with his hand that he holds near his chin, in case .. anyone doesn't know what a beard is or where it goes.] Sarcastic? Funny? Or if not him, then - maybe a short white girl with really, really pale skin and white hair that comes down to here? [He points to his chin.] I haven't been able to find them anywhere, so I'm beginning to think they .. didn't end up here. For whatever reason. If anyone's seen either of them, I'd appreciate the help.
