[it looks like you may have stumbled on a cinema channel. The picture quality is different from normal transmission. Hard to say how. Colors more intense but light more hazy. Sensory input… it's almost more tactile than visual. See in feeling. Wind on face, sun on back, weight on feet…
It's not this distortion that makes the land and the light look unearthly. It's not Earth.
An obsidian land, once melted, now hard and dry, ash and cavern, with a violet sky…]

[The display snapped back to this reality.

The woods of De Chima. Hitting the ground from the Porter at a dead run.

Cassian stumbling again to his knees, managed to keep it at dry heaving this time, pushing himself up against a tree, and slapping the comm angrily]


Work blast it.

Does anyone read me?

[flashes of their names, their faces, on the display as through his mind:

Bodhi—Veronica—Han—Poe

but perhaps none of them will mind, they'll understand, that the only names he can force through his throat right now:]

[ 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. ]

OOC: This post is in relation to this and this

I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it, or if this will lead to anything, but - I'm afraid it's a bit of a Missing Persons ad. [Her voice is a bit unsteady in a way that suggests she's trying her hardest to maintain her composure. The apples of her cheeks are a bit flushed, the rims of her eyes a bit pinker than normal. She offers a very, very tight-lipped, twitching smile before her face goes sullen again.]

I'm wondering if anyone has seen the man in the image I'm about to show. He was last seen in De Chima yesterday morning and has not been seen or heard of since. His communicator was broken, though any message sent to him, regardless of format, bounces back as though there's - [She pauses, inhaling a short breath to steel herself to continue.]

As though there's no recipient to be found.

If you've any information, please let me know. Any assistance would - would be greatly appreciated.

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.

[The communicator is set up in such a way that the main viewpoint is pointed at a clean countertop with what looks like... several glasses of milk, except the milk is various shades of blue. Some are more white than blue, and some are more blue than white. Overall, it's a little weird.

It's a little bit weirder, when behind the row of milk, is a seven-foot robot, and then a human woman.
]

Hello. Because Tanith fails to acknowledge that I have perfect recollection of what milk it supposed to look like, we have to unfortunately ask you people.

[Jyn rolls her eyes, heavily, at Kay's comment, then glares up at him before deadpanning over to the camera again.]

He's malfunctioning, obviously, and doesn't know anything about anything.

I think that the perfect shade of bantha milk is this one.


[She holds up a glass somewhere in the middle of the blue spectrum.]

I drank a lot of it, fermented especially, growing up. I know it's the right color.

You know, I don't think they're going to really know what the proper color is, considering their milk is white, for some reason.

[So everyone- what do you think? The slightly more blue milk, or the slightly less blue milk? Both milks look equally gross unless you're, you know, used to that.]

[The feed is simple, Revan, sitting in a darkened room, with only a single warm light to reveal him and the table at which he sits. Like a storyteller sitting by candlelight, or a dim fire. He folds his hands and smiles a smile that genuinely looks like it's for you. ]

Hello friends. I hope the day finds you well. I have a slightly more... indulgent question for you today. A bit of a hypothetical situation, with a less than obvious solution. And I'm interested to hear how you'd respond in such a situation. There are no right or wrong answers, I more want to explore your reasoning and logical process.

I encourage you all to see this as a discussion, and perhaps even a respectful debate. But this is not a place for judgements.

And so I shall begin. I will try to summarize as best I can, but if I'm unclear please feel free to ask for clarification.

Situation: There are two nations at war, one with a reputation for being good, and one that has proven itself time and again to be influenced by evil. There is a third, neutral, smaller nation that is offering to supply both sides with medical supplies, on the hard line condition that the war not come to their lands. On pain of death, and revocation of their trade agreement.

You have been called upon for you reputation of intellegence and clarity, [There's the slightest twitch at the corner of his lips, as if amused by his own description.] to review a potential breach in that agreement:

A solder for the former nation, with a long history of bravery and honor, stands accused of killing a soldier of the latter. And if found guilty will be executed and the nation of good will see valuable medical supplies cut off from troops in need. The soldier claims they are innocent.

While your investigation is length and nuanced, you eventually come to the conclusion that the two soldiers were having an affair. The living, "good" soldier thought it was love, while it turns out the deceased "evil" soldier was only using the other to spy and steal secrets. So when the living soldier found out, they lured the deceased out under the guise of a rendezvous, murdered them for their betrayal, then attempted to cover it up.

Faced with this knowledge, when asked for your verdict, what would you say? Knowing full well a guilty verdict would result in the soldiers death, and the "good" nation's losing valuable medical supplies to the "evil" nation. A fact that could potentially cost them the war?

So everyone wants to know if your world has magic or space travel or- I dunno, pop-punk?

Here's the real question, is anyone from a world where there are doctors who don't constantly sound like they're trying to talk you into crawling up their ass to live with them in there?

Hi, uh, my name's...I'm Richard, I'm from Palo Alto - some other world's Palo Alto anyways, I'm new here, I don't know anybody, and honestly I'd probably rather have used the texting function but I'm curious to see how clearly this video will come through.

Is there anyone here who's actually worked on this network, by any chance? It's really interesting and I'd love to chat about it. Or anyone who knows about tech here in general.

[He looks away for a moment, and rubs the back of his head with one hand.]

Also, is there anyone else here who has never ever fought crime, not even once? I'm not actually sure how we're picked for, uh, this, but I'm feeling a little underqualified right now.

[The video opens with an image of a man sitting on his wheelchair. The grey fishbone suit jacket seems almost a little too formal on top of a nice turquoise knit of his sweater and the Burberry check of his quilt that's spread over his legs. He has crossed his fingers on his lap and seems to be addressing the recording device while leaning a bit forward, as if he were worried his words wouldn't carry far enough. Cut him some slack, he's used to the 80's technology.

A calm, enduring smile has curved over his lips and blue eyes seem steady, no nervousness to be detected. ]


Good day to you, fellow imports and others who might have access to these recordings. I'll start by introducing myself, to those who aren't familiar with me. I am Professor Charles Xavier, recently brought to this situation, like I imagine has happened to quite a few of you. I would like to address the network for a few matters that are of both personal and public nature.

Firstly, I would like to welcome anyone who has problems with adjusting to their possibly new powers and abilities to contact me for help. I have decades worth of experience from mentoring powered individuals. If you need help, do not hesitate to contact me.

[ He takes a moment to consider his words, looking at something else beyond the camera lens. Then with a mild clearing of his throat, he continues: ] My second matter is much more personal and not as much an announcement as it is a request.

I've been notified that I've spent some time in this place before. Several times, apparently. I'd love to get together with those of you who have known me before, fill these empty spaces in my memories if you will. Please, contact me.

[ With a brief nod, Charles reaches for the device, about to close it off. ]

And of course, stay safe everyone.

The name's Cad Bane and I'm seeking some information and some work.

I'm not sure I like a place that gives you a file on your life and recruits you without any negotiations on the paycheck. So right now I'm looking for a better deal. If it can be done, I'll get it done - even if you don't think it can be done - but don't waste my time with any tiny offers of payment or favors in return. You get what you pay for and I'm the best.

What jobs do I do? I'm leaving this open. Everything is negotiable.

Now, about this place and the people here. Tell me something more than what the official word is. Make it worth my while.

they talk a lot about right and wrong. what stops you from hurting someone, what eats you up from the inside out if you do.

so what if your skin doesn't crawl when you hear someone scream in pain?

what if you feel no pain when you see someone's legs break right at the bone

what if they didn't remind you of anybody you cared about? what if the blood or whatever didn't make you think about going to hell or puking up your pancakes or crying or anything

what if you knew how not to get caught

what if it was fun

what would stop you from fucking people up

Today is Memorial Day in the United States, ostensibly a day to honor those who died during military service, though it seems to mostly be an excuse for cookouts. I didn't serve in the American army, but I did fight alongside plenty of American soldiers during World War IV, many of whom didn't survive.

How many others here have been in the military? Whether it's the American armed forces or a military that doesn't even exist here, I'm sure we've all lost comrades. I'm going to visit some of the cemeteries around Maurtia Falls and put flowers on the graves of soldiers who may not have surviving families. Maybe you'd like to join me, or do the same in your city of choice.

Mother's day has come and gone. It was my first mother's day here. I never got to see where my mother's ashes were scattered. And now I never will. It's made me think of other ways to remember her.

[She holds up a sketch she made of her mother, climbing a mountain.]

That's her. I drew her going up Eagle Mountain. It was a trip we were planning to make, before...

[Her voice trails off and she puts the sketch down.]

Well, before.

[She pauses and blinks a few times, keeping herself from crying.]

I have a power with a harpsichord. One of the things I can do is help people recall good memories. Or make the bad ones less painful. I can't use it on myself. It only works on others. So if anyone wants to remember the good things about the people you've lost, or to get beyond some bad memories, I can try to help you.

[It isn't entirely selfless. She's hoping someone out there can offer to help with her memories too.]

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.

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.

Greetings, Network. My name is Skeets. As new imports come trickling in again, I have something important for us to discuss.

As you're aware, imPorts by definition do not come from this Earth and are instead from various alternate universes. Some of us come from the same or similar worlds to each other, while others come from vastly different ones. This has created an organizational problem for me in my file-keeping. I'd like to categorize known worlds but as of yet I haven't many records of names.

I believe it's about time we agreed on some names for our home universes to make things easier - not just for data collection but also to make it easier for us to talk about them.


Skeets has a survey, under the cut for your convenience )
