[Jonathan is sitting there, in the comfort of his assigned housing, flood damage clearly visible on the wall behind him. Despite this, and his still wet hair and soaking clothes, Jonathan appears to be trying to keep a calm, professional demeanor.]

You know, I heard some really interesting stories about me over these past few days from some of the natives, things that would put me in places at times I know I was somewhere else. So I was just wondering if anyone had seen me acting unusual, maybe...I don't know, trying to half drown someone and drag them off? Because if you could let me know about anything like that, that would be awesome.

Also, if anyone wants to help me catch him, that would be great, because I'm not sure who would win in a fight between me and myself, but I don't want to find out. The key word here is 'catch', though. I am not cool with anyone killing my clone, because he might have had terrible role models, and he might have been made in a lab, but at the end of the day he's still a person and that's still murder.

So...that said, anyone up for helping me find myself?

[To slouch; a lazy, drooping posture or movement. Godric seems to have mastered the art of this form on a couch that appears to be in a quiet coffee shop somewhere. An untouched cup of coffee sits steaming on the table where he's propped his communicator. He lifts his coffee as he speaks, cradling it in his hands, but doesn't take a sip.]

Do you find that your life here is an improvement or a burden? Do you find yourself valuing things you have here that you did not have back home? Or alternatively, are there things you miss that you cannot hope to find here?

And if given the choice, would you stay or go?

Hi! I signed up for the president thing. For a laugh, really. I suppose I should make a speech, though.

[great start.]

Uhh... my name's Riptide! I'm almost four million years old and I've been to tons of planets so I've seen lots of political systems. Most of them don't work very well because people get really obsessive about having money so I think my first call of order will be that if you're a weird rich person, you get sprayed with a hose until you stop being weird!

[he claps his hands.]

Secondly! More non-human stuff! I got forced into a human body! I mean, what?? If there's gonna be non-humans here then we should accommodate them. I think I'm going to encourage all this weird technology to go into the right place. We don't need hovercars, we need more food and more alcohol! Is there even any cyberweed here? That too! That calms people down right quick.

[the one intelligent thought riptide has had about all this is that he can't just focus on himself and that humans are actually the dominant species on the planet.]

Leading on from that, I want that technology to go into medical advances and stuff. Again: are hovercars really necessary?

I'll let you know more as I think of them and I'm for the people, so if you have suggestions then let me know! I've never really liked the idea of one person making all the rules. It's always gotta be a team effort, doesn't it?

Hello dear imPorts! My name is John Smithson and I work on an ongoing project at the New York City Zoo. I am in the middle of writing a paper which looks into the types of Megafauna which have gone extinct in this world but which might still be extant in others.

So, does your world have dinosaurs, mammoths, giant scorpions, terrible predators or any other creatures that might be considered monstrous? If so please describe the creature(s) as best as possible below, and we will have one of our best digital artists create an image and add it to our database.

Thanks for your co-operation imPorts. We hope that you come visit our zoo sometime soon!

[OOC: Should anyone call the zoo to ask about the project they will be told that nobody by the name John Smithson works there and there is no such project. Curious huh?]

[here is archie again with another one of his weird dogs!! he's floating in the tide, hanging off a sunbathing sharpedo and holding onto its dorsal fin with his free hand.]

Yo! Alright, so apparently I can heal animals now! Sick as shit, right? I tried to get hired by the local vets but they said I have no experience and I'm a [finger quotes] disgrace to the profession and all higher education. Stupid, right?

[he can't imagine why people who had to study for years would be annoyed by some jackoff who shows up with magic.]

Anyway, if ya have somethin' that needs attention, give me a chirp. I'll come see what I can do about it and I'll charge less than those asshole vets.

...Don't call me if it's you that's got messed up, though. I tried, and I can't do shit for injured humans. Go to the hospital or call Angie or somethin'.

[the one thing he won't divulge is that he's actually reading vet books like some stupid nerd. awful.]

Criminals. I need criminals.

[A pause as his brain is working too fast for his mouth to catch up.]

I need to know any ImPorts who have a criminal history, recent or otherwise. Anyone who's had a history of violence, and/or theft.

Hello, everyone! You know, I've noticed a lot of crazy things happen around here, and so I was thinking I should start keeping a first aid kit around just in case. Unfortunately...there are a few things I'm having a bit of trouble finding, so I was wondering if you guys could help me out.

So anyway, if anyone could help me out here, I'm looking for Sodium Hydroxide as well as neoprene gloves and thread. The thread should be made of neoprene, too.

[If Jonathan knows that there's anything odd about his 'first aid' kit, he shows no sign of it. Also, if they look, they might see what Jonathan has gathered so far, which includes cellophane, scissors, gauze bandages, a thermometer, aspirin and anti-itch cream, all sitting on the desk behind him.]

Hello, everyone! My name's Jonathan Walsh, and this is certainly an interesting alternate version of Earth we've got here, isn't it? Now, I've been here a few days, settling in, and but I figured I should come on here and get to know everyone instead of hiding away like a hermit.

Now, I've had a lot of my questions answered already, but I have one particular topic of questioning I'd like to ask you all about, and that's registration! On the surface, from what I've seen, it doesn't look like there are any downsides, but isn't that how all sales pitches go? So I'd like to hear from all of you, registered or not. How has it been? What are the upsides, downsides, neutral sides that could be potentially a pro or con to some people? I'd like to hear your thoughts!

I'm not going to waste time asking if there is a way off this backwater planet, it doesn't seem as if anyone has managed something so basic thus far. I don't understand why the natives of this planet seem to be proud of themselves as if this planet is something special despite being so primitive.

But it seems as I am stuck here for the foreseeable future so tell me what this planet has to offer, I'm curious to know.

[When he's done writing he switched to video but all that can be seen is a sheet with neatly written, very premise, Aurebesh symbols written on it-

'I'm sure some of you can read this. What is the last thing you recall before arriving here?'

No one seemed to know about Starkiller and the Hosnian System but he had to make sure and know who else was on this backwater planet. He held the paper there for a few moments before finally cutting the feed.]

[Faint pop music plays from just off camera, and a young woman with pale skin and platinum blond hair lounges on a lawn chair somewhere with a copy of As I Lay Dying on her lap (har har), soaking up the sun and chewing on a piece of gum. With her complexion, the rays seem desperately needed but should leave her at quite the risk for sunburn if she's not careful! In any case, right now she's clearly not thinking about that, as she is quite busy adjusting the angle of the camera sitting next to her, even going so far as to lift her sunglasses onto the top of her head to get a better look and make sure everything is perfect.

Once she's satisfied, she smiles, nods, and blows a big, pink bubble that pops quite loudly.]


Pop quiz, everybody. Karen DeSonne here, your intrepid undead girl reporter.

Oh, wait. Reporters don't... give pop quizzes, do they? [She taps her chin thoughtfully.] Intrepid undead substitute teacher? Sure, let's go... with that.

I've heard a lot of talk about powers and heroes and nano-something-or-others since I got here, but other than how we're a problem... this world would be blessed to be rid of or something like that, not a lot about monsters. Creepies. Crawlies. Spooky, scary... skeletons. Can I get a head... count on how many of you out there are the things that go bump in the night? Maybe we can start a club. Also, those of you who'd rather kill a zombie than buy her a caffè Americano and a white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookie, you can chime in too. Then we'll both know exactly who to keep... our distance from, won't we?

[The sunglasses are slid back down over her eyes, and Karen leans back into prime sunning position. Then, almost as an afterthought:]

Bonus question, before class is dismissed. Any idea what this place needs our type around for? They say when there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth. So what does... that say about an... Earth that's desperate to have us?

(As the video feed begins, Zoey seems somewhat apprehensive and yet inquisitive at the same time.)

Okay, I'm going to get right to it. If anyone knows of what Pokémon are, or know two people by the name of Ash or a blue-haired girl by the name of Dawn or even a brown-haired girl by name of May... Please contact me. My name is Zoey. Now on to bigger problems... has anyone been having issues with their new 'powers'? And another thing, I find the facts that the people who greeted me when I arrived to be a little...suspicious to say the least. Maybe I'm being a little paranoid? I don't know but I have this lingering feeling about this whole thing... And then there's this job I was assigned... Student, that I can kind of deal with even if it's a little against what I'm used to. But, part-time worker in a pet store? Ugh. Though I suppose there are worse jobs. Thanks in advance if you can help.
