Hello.

I am looking for help.

Is there anyone in Maurtia Falls who can meet me? I would like to meet some people here. Thank you



I would also like to talk to anyone who doesn't live in Maurtia Falls. It will be nice to learn names and faces. And what you do and where you have come from. My name is Nill and I will show you a picture of my face soon but I can't work out how to do it right now I'm sorry

Thank you


[ ah yes, text. the perfect medium for pretending everything is fine and you haven't been hiding in your room for almost as long as you've been here so far ]

[There's a whooshing noise before the video comes online, and it's immediately apparent why: Jacob is flying in the sky, crouched atop a new shield-shaped glider. He's telekinetically holding the communicator away from him using his biotic powers so everyone can get a look at his new gear: black-and-grey armour, with a translucent triangular visor over his face and a utility belt around his waist. He's above the rooftops of Maurtia Falls, judging by the presence of the Helix Station structure in the background.]

Check it out! The bad guys can run, but they can't glide.

[The view spins queasily for a moment as Jacob brings the communicator back to his hand, then there's a roaring sound as he brings the glider in for a landing. When the picture re-stabilizes, Jacob is standing on solid ground again- with the glider collapsed and stowed on his back.]

Pretty nice, huh? Take it from me: if you ever need new gear, Kanaya Maryam and her group do the best work around. Reasonable prices, too.

[He spreads his arms and does a little half-turn for a moment, showing off the costume's quality, then gets down to business.]

Anyway, I'm not just making this post to show off. My name's Jacob, and I work with RISE- that's Rogue ImPort Suppression Enforcement, if you want to get technical. We're funded by the government and based out of Maurtia Falls. Our job is to help protect people and enforce the law when it comes to special threats. If you're Registered, have a clean criminal record, and want to do some good, get in contact with me or Sabriel. We're always looking for new recruits.

I also want to give a heads-up to any investigators out there: keep your eyes open for anything about the Otherworld Technologies Organization, OTO. A bunch of us have been looking into them for a while. We think they were involved in a blackout and a breakout earlier this year. And word is there are scientists going around, paying local metahumans for experiments on their powers. If you learn anything about them, let me know.

[Jacob shrugs.]

That's all I've got. Stay safe out there, everyone.

[Jacob closes the post, but also attaches a link to the OOC equivalent of this post for people interested in RISE, and to this Network post for people who weren't around for the post-blackout drama. For OOC reference, this is the latest post about OTO investigations.]

[there's a letter juuuust in view in the screen that Manabu glances down from repeatedly while addressing the camera.

his mouth twitches, trying to smother his smile while he reads.

ahem:]


'Mister Yuuki, we're pleased to present you with your General Education Development certificate, which fulfills high school equivalency requirements in the below listed states.' [he pauses, a little cheesy, pleased grin.

a-anyway:]
Ah-- mm, aaand...those are the places it's good...dut-dut...mm, oh [reading quickly:]--'We, we hope this will encourage you to further your academic career and reach new educational heights.'

[a beat.

beaming:]
So that's one thing down...Something that ought to be permanent here, in case I get punched back out of here for another couple years, haha...

Not bad, right?

[Rather than be in the actual ambassador's office for this broadcast, he's outside and in the city, overlooking the skyline of De Chima. This is his home for as long as he's here and it brings out a look of determination.]

I was given the chance to see how De Chima could thrive and be overseen by an able and intelligent ambassador. Lucy Pevensie cared about the citizens of her city and dedicated herself completely to their benefit. I promise to do the same. De Chima is full of brave heroes, not just among the imPorts but the natural citizens as well. This is the city where we can put aside where we are from and instead focus on what the future has in store for us.

Everything we do can be used for the benefit of De Chima and for everyone that resides here. The role of ambassador is to facilitate the interests of the imPorts, but there shouldn't be a divide between us and them. This is our city, all of ours and I promise to make it a city we all can call home.

My name is Jon Snow and I'm running for the ambassadorship of De Chima.

I guess here's a question for the long-timers here, if you're up to killing some time...

Whatever job you had back home, one that you loved and really believed in...but doesn't work or can't happen here...if you had that, what are you doing now? Did you find something similar? Or did you discover something new you love just as much...or more?

I'd think it would be hard to get too attached, considering the circumstances...

Hey, Network. I didn’t mean to go so long without posting, but it’s been, uh, a while--

[ --since shortly before he was unmasked on the network by Tony Stark’s evil alternate universe counterpart, actually. THANKS FOR THAT, BUDDY.

In deference to the new status quo, Peter is wearing one of his usual button-downs with the sleeves rolled up, but with the collar unbuttoned enough that the red of his costume peeks through. Baby steps! ]


If we haven’t met, I’m Peter Parker, also known as [ cough ] Spider-Man, and I’ve been here for a few years now, so if you’re new and have questions about how to manage this whole kidnapped-to-another-universe thing, I can try to field them. Not that you can’t ask if you’re not new, but anyway.

I've got two announcements to make--sort of a good news, bad news kind of thing.

[ Clasping his hands together: ] First, the good news! As some of you saw on a recent Majority Report, I'm going to be working with Kanaya Maryam, Norman Osborn, and Revan on our new venture to provide costumes and equipment to the superheroic masses. I'm really excited to be working with the team, and I want to thank Kanaya and Normie for bringing me on. Details at the link below, etcetera, etcetera.

[ There's an attached link which will take the curious onlooker or potential client to the project's website. ]

For the record, I'm signing on as one of the tech-heads. My job is to do everything in my power to help you use your powers most effectively and then get home safely. I've been advised in the strongest possible terms that I'm not allowed to give fashion advice under the auspices of the company--[ He may be slightly grumpy about this. His costume's a classic, Kanaya!!! ]--so for that you'll have to ask Kanaya.

[ The feed opens up to a young woman sitting behind the counter of a flower shop. Several flower arrangements are lined up behind her, some more artfully arranged - and frankly, more gorgeous - than others.

(They're works in progress, okay?) On the bright side, she's sticking to safe combinations or single-flower bouquets, rather than branching out. ]


Hey, everyone. [ She beams into the camera; first impressions matter, after all. ] I've gotta ask, especially if you've been here a while: what's one thing you wish you'd known when you first got here?

I'm no stranger to parallel universes - trust me, living in Central City will do that to you - but it's still kind of surreal, you know? This doesn't have to be anything life-changing. It can be something small like, oh... I don't know, your new favorite coffee place?

[ The video feed is just some extremely high definition footage of a bouquet of flowers blooming and then dying in what surely must be time-lapse. But no here come all the cute bugs at regular speed to munch on the plants. This is all set on black velvet and surrounded by what seems to be pieces of some small predator's skeleton cast in silver. ]

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?

[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.]

It's weird to think that maybe this Earth could turn out like the one from my universe. Or timeline. Or however it works...
(I'm not really smart about all this, I'm sorry...)

But there's a lot that's similar. Even on the planet I lived on, and all the ones in the galaxy, we all use the same clock system, even though some days are longer or shorter depending on which planet you landed on. Same 24 hour clock. And this Earth uses one, too. And there's baseball and hovercars and the moon landing was about the same time (I think)...

So I wonder how long it will take for this Earth to leave the planet, if it will. Or maybe it won't because it won't make the same mistakes the Earth in my history did. Or maybe they WILL but they'll decide to do something differently. Maybe because people like us are here it's already changed how things will go. Maybe because I'm here the railways from my world can show, and maybe because someone else is here, something from their history will happen? IS that already happening?

It's also weird that I can think about all this without trying when I'm TRYING to study something else...

I know that there have been deep concerns raised about the state of the work done by the Ambassadors. I urge you to, if you have questions, concerns, or any other matter that you suspect we may be able to assist you with, to contact us.

My office is always open to petitioners, and I am more than pleased to speak to the populace on any matter.

I thank you, especially those of De Chima, for your constancy and your support, and I urge you to contact me if you require assistance for any issue, great or small.

[Was that a mask? The visual shows what appears to be some sort of skeletal alien mask and the voice that accompanies it sounds oddly mechanical. Some here may recognize the cyborg General, even if just from historical records. While arriving as human, he'd quickly discovered his powers of transformation from the files he was given then after some brief experimenting he settled on the one he'd last been most familiar with. At least for now.]

Citizens. Heroes.

[The emphasized word seems to catch in his throat and there's a brief cough before he continues with an underlying growl to his tone.]

This is an unfortunate development. I was interrupted in the midst of a critical battle. I do not have time to deal with your little world's problems.

[The words are interrupted again by more coughing then an annoyed growl before the video cuts out abruptly.]

[Brendan took the explanation he got when he arrived about as well as could be expected, all things considered. It wasn’t the Promised Land, but it was a step up from home – not a big accomplishment, there – and much as he wasn’t keen on playing social butterfly, it was best to get the lay of the land when it came to the people. And hey, at least the powers that be were nice enough to patch up his glasses. Other than looking tired and deadpan, he’s practically good as new; at the very least, he’s composed as he looks into the camera and sets it up, though it takes him a moment to get the angle right.]

Sorry ‘bout the lack of technical skills. Not used to these things just yet. My name’s Brendan Frye. I’m a sophomore, though I somehow lucked my way into some AP classes, back home at least. I don’t bring a lot of skills to the table, here. Thought I was done with other people’s home-brewed chaos and frankly I don’t see myself getting too involved if I can’t figure out a way to not be one more burden for the people with real powers. All I got’s some healing and just enough strength to be useful, maybe.

I know nobody here owes me answers and I’m not looking to get in with anyone’s cliques; got no need to make waves and zero interest in that. Basically I’ve got some questions about school here, I wanna know what laws are different from back in California and if the cops around here are worth a damn – ‘cause they were crooks back in San Clemente – and if anyone can offer any bits of advice, that's all I'm after.

[With very little fanfare and no goodbye, he snaps the camera feed off. Whatever his feelings are on this superhero business, and he himself isn’t a hundred percent sure on what he feels, he’s playing it close to his chest for now.]
