[He'll figure out the video thing at some point, and then no doubt he'll make sure everyone sees him more than they are really interested in doing so, but until then, he had some questions that were fairly easy to relay over what was essentially a telephone.]

So, I have never really been to America. [Or this 'pseudo-America', as far as he was concerned. Details. Either way, his British accent should be obvious to about anyone.]

This is all very unfamiliar to me, but I'm not really in the market for a tour or a culture crash course. What I'm most interested in is finding out just where the night life is, because this place... Nonah? Just isn't cutting it.

Frankly, I'm not even sure where to start.

[ Good evening, Mask or Menace! Jaime's back, and while he doesn't look any older, he certainly looks tired and a little sour to boot, like someone just fed him a nintendo switch cartridge real bitter pill. It was a long month. ]

So, um... hey! I'm back. That was definitely the longest I've been ported out for, but I gotta ask: what happened while I was gone? Because I got back, and all of a sudden, like, half of the people I know are gone. Dick's gone, Tadashi's gone again, Fuu's gone, Sarissa's gone, so's my Mom...

Was this just the Porter, or what?

[ It probably is - people tend to leave in waves - but it's left him feeling a little shellshocked, and it's worth searching for answers at the very least. He raises a hand to rub at the back of his neck, playing a little with the hair at the nape. ]

Um, anyway. Good to see you guys who are still here. And for all the newbies, I'm Jaime. Nice to meet you.

Whether a man is a criminal or a hero is a matter of perspective.

But if you don't want to play your role anymore, and are removed from your motivation for being who you are, what do you do? Do you seek redemption and rehabilitation and transform as an individual, or do you repeat negative behavior? How much do you believe people change only because they are imPorted? In short, do you believe people can change?

If I had anybody willing to discuss this in private with me, I assure you, I'd not be raising the issue publically.

Thank you in advance.

( HI guys. This is Sarissa. Last time she was on the network she was wearing a ridiculous shirt and was even more ridiculously drunk, a shenanigan that involved yelling at people about art and being excessively poetic. It was a mess.

Now here is Sarissa, looking a lot more serious. Her hair is pulled back into a messy bun, is wearing a dark charcoal button down, and is entirely sober. )


Uh— hi. I’m Sarissa Theron. A few of you have already had the misfortune of speaking to me, in person or on here. Usually I’m pretty obnoxious, so—

( She frowns, and pauses. No, deflecting won’t work for this, and she rolls her shoulders to get herself to focus. )

Some of you might have heard by now that I was murdered. Twice, actually. The first time was just after Thanksgiving and the second time was at the tail end of that blackout we was all in a fluster about. I lied the first time around and said I didn’t know who killed me, because…

( Her gaze drops, for a moment. ) I was scared, mostly. Thought I was protecting the people I cared about, and I thought silence was the only way to do it, because the person I was protecting them from was - is - invulnerable. That kind of backfired, but. So— here I am.

His name is Sylar, but some of you might’ve met him as Gabriel Gray. He has a kind of… hunger, or an obsession, I guess, with collecting powers. That was why he killed me the first time around, so he could take a power of mine.

( She exhales, slowly, working herself up to the next bit. ) To be perfectly clear, he’s a fuckhead and he tried to hurt people I care about to make a game outta our lives. But I think— I think despite my visceral feelings about it, what’s more important than trying to take him apart is trying to get him help. Justice, obviously, he needs to take responsibility for what he did, but just— if you find him, and if you’re able to contain someone like him, don’t hurt him or... be shit, basically. Something happened, maybe, to make him how he is and vengeance and all that aren’t gonna help him get better, they’ll just give him more rage to run on. I figure enough of us around these parts are from heaps messed up worlds or have seen messed up shit to know what that’s like, in some way.

Anyway. I’m sorry I didn’t come out and say it sooner. If you have questions or that, I’ll answer them as good as I can.


( ooc: Sylar stuff is public knowledge as of the Majority report if you want your character to be a bit familiar with it. )

[ When the video begins, it's just flowers. A whole room full of flowers. And somewhere in there, is Raina who is wearing floral print which is pretty much like camouflage in this room. And it's not just this room, either. Raina had filled her entire apartment with flowers. The things one does when they're trying to distract themselves from sadness. ]

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd devote my time to making up some fresh bouquets.

[ She gestures at just some of those fresh bouquets before turning the camera toward the kitchen to show....even more flowers. It's like she's a hoarder. Or if not a hoarder, then definitely obsessed! There are a freakishly large number of flowers. ]

I can make any sort of flower, any color you want. [ The camera is back on her and she holds out her palm to display her ability. A warm pink glow starts at the center of her skin before a light white and gold rose grows from it, fully formed. Raina picks it up and adds it to a bouquet she's currently working on, tying it together with a pretty, gold ribbon. ] And if you can get me a good enough description, I can even make flowers that you might find in your own worlds and not here. Unfortunately, you won't be able to plant them and grow them in this world. But I could keep them alive for you.

[ She sets the bouquet aside and glances toward the camera, plastering on the best smile she can muster -- but even she can't hide the tinges of her depression. ]

So, I'm offering customized bouquets starting at five dollars and going up from there depending on how complicated or elaborate you want them. All proceeds will go toward ImPort Cellular Research, so you're donating to a good cause.

[ And then, maybe a bit more of a pointed comment. ]

It's always good to show the ones you care about how much you care every now and then. Our time together in this world can be so fleeting.

[Frank has been lying low since the blackout. When the government gave him a reward, he didn't want to risk building any more notoriety outside of his typical reputation. It's one of the many reasons to leave Heropa, besides him having more work to do up north.

So when he returns to the Network, it's to unceremoniously use it as Craigslist. Again.]


Need to know about the cheapest places to rent in Maurtia Falls. And a decent mechanic.

Maybe away from the permanent fireworks. [A mumbled aside, almost cut off by him stopping the feed:] At least Tomorrowland laid off the floating old fuck in the stars.

[ The camera seems to artfully be placed on the edge of a desk. Behind the guy on screen is both an American flag, and the Virginia state flag. On the desk, at an extreme angle is the words S. 2549 ]

I know it's a little behind -- it's been a long couple of weeks since the blackout, and I meant to address everyone earlier than this, but... you know how the Senate can be, particularly at the beginning of a new session. [ A half-grin. He knows it's bullshit, but... ]

Anyway, I wanted to ask most of you who were affected the most by the blackout -- what kind of government response would you have found the most useful?

Or to any crisis, really. This isn't the first, and it won't be the last, and I want to make sure we have a plan in place to properly utilize the resources we have to make sure we all get out of this safely. Even if it's something small, it'll help.

[ A pause, and then a slight gesture. ] Obviously, I'm working on a bill, so it would help me to field the people who seem the most impacted by these sorts of things, you know?

[ He reaches to shut it off, before -- ] Oh, and for those of you who are new, welcome to your new reality. If you need anything, you can always reach out. Just because I'm a Senator for Virginia doesn't mean I'm not available for imports as a whole. I'm the only voice we have in the Federal Government, you know?

at the risk of being That Guy, i gotta ask: whats the deal with the job assignments for new imports? are they all jokes or is the universe just messing with me?

either way, im definitely in the market for something better. the government wasnt helpful enough to kidnap me with a resume or references on hand, so i guess youll just have to take my word for it, but here goes:

names Cisco Ramon, techspert extraordinaire. masters in engineering, second best coder on my earth. app writer, gear inventor, whatever you need. i can weld, i can solder, i can sew (leather, which let me tell you, is a bitch to work with). new to this earth so help a brother out and tell me where to look, or just offer me a job, thatd be great either way. shacked up in heropa but commutings easy with these porter things right?

so yeah. call me. been a while since i had to look for a new job, but im pretty sure my interview game is still on point.

LLAP. 🖖

Hello, imPorts.

[It's quiet in the background - only the low murmur of a television news broadcast can be heard.]

That was a mess, wasn't it. A fucking mess. I wouldn't be surprised if the aftermath of all this impacted the imPort cities for months, especially with those criminals running loose.

[He clicks his tongue, tsk tsk.]

But did you know, my synagogue has already organized a fundraiser for the hospital here in Maurtia Falls? Yeah, can you believe it? They had the operation all set up and running not twelve hours after the power came back on, and from what I hear, they weren't alone. It's almost as if they're used to this sort of disastrous thing happening. But, well, what would I know, right; I've only been here a few months.

[This is bullshit; he's done extensive backreading, and knows how common imPort-related crises - either those caused by imPorts, or those done in reaction to imPorts - are.]

And now it's over and done with, and I suspect that no one's gonna dwell. But I have to wonder - did anyone look to the stars?

[Seriously, what had that message been about? It was weird.]

[Videoblogging fresh and early in the morning with this serene backdrop, Jesse looks clean and put-together in a way that suggests he's been fussed over by stylists for at least an hour and probably just came straight from a photo session. Which he has. But the network gets a more casual, less Media-Friendly Jesse Pinkman overall, as he gives the camera a little wave and gets right to it:]

So... Oh yeah, hi, all you new guys. I'm Jesse, in case you didn't know that. Been here a, uh, long time now. Three years? So, you know, hit me with questions and I probably got a few answers.

[He claps his hands. Moving on.]

Anyway, I started a business. Something I been working on since summer, actually. 'cause volunteering at hospitals and all, it's great and I'm still gonna take some time and do that, but like they say: When you're good at something, don't just do it for free. So check this out:

[And he pops over a link to a website.]

And, look, before you say anything: No, I didn't name it or design it or anything. Way smarter people than me did all that. I'm just the guy with the superpowers who gets to look pretty in the ads. Don't ask me if I do yoga. I seriously don't do yoga.

Where was I going with this? Uh, right, we're hiring people. Healers are the best, but if you got any kinda powers you think might be useful around a luxury health resort, come at me. I'll find a place for you. This business is about showing the world what kinda good us imPorts can do and making a shitload of money while we're doing it. So everybody wins, really.

Awesome. Okay. Happy New Year.
