----> THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT <----

My name is Spooky Jones, and the United States government has officially assigned me my own sex and relationship advice column called SPOOKY LOVE.

Turns out there's not much of a need for demonologists in these parts, who knew. Glad to see our tax dollars at work, though, and I'm always happy to lend a helping hand to whoever needs one.

Now that I think about it, it sort of sounds like the person who gave me this job took the saying “make love, not war” a little too literally. Not that you’ll hear me complaining. Besides, a job’s a job, am I right?

[Truth be told, Spooky has been fighting monsters for so long that the thought of completely setting that aside hasn't...really sunk in yet. But Spooky is adaptable, he is flexible in more ways than one, and he’ll roll with whatever punches this place throws at him.]

Anyway, if you guys have any questions about sex, relationships, or anything else you’re usually too embarrassed to talk about, you should totally hit me up at my website here:

[Insert link that re-directs your character to the aforementioned site]

You can’t lose, so ask anything you want. It’s completely anonymous, I promise.

[OOC: If you want your character to anonymously submit a question, reply to this post with “Spooky Love Question” in the subject line. These questions will be submitted through his off-network website, and they will be featured on his next network post.

Unless otherwise noted, all other comments will be the usual Network stuff!]

THE MAJORITY REPORT: JULY 10TH, 2017
Chaos in the streets! Candidates in the bweets! This past week has been a maelstrom of bizarre miracles, rebellion, and political scrutiny.

VEE FOR VENDETTA
As seen in tabloids and the TMI blog, with very blurry photos:
The mysterious Vee, who has a passing resemblance to Veronica Sawyer, has been caught vandalizing buildings nightly. Teenage rebellion, some call it. Her signature seems to be complete with lyrics like "it's only teenage wasteland" and slogans like "fuck the police", all tagged with a V. Suspect is accused of wearing bright eighties outfits and a bandana to cover her identity and protect her nose from the fumes. She carries a croquet mallet and is considered armed.

Ms. Sawyer herself claims innocence. Leaked Heropan Police Department reports seem to support her numerous alibis.

A SIGHT FOR STARK EYES
As seen on literally every important talk show, day and night:
Spectators were shocked on the talk show "The Sight" this week, when an interview with CEO Tony Stark seemed to take on a life of its own. Stark was promoting a new line of antivirus software when they took a commercial break -- his segment seemingly done. When they returned, however, Stark asked for more time, to talk about, of all things, the legacy left by the Metahumans and the "4" app he'd been responsible for previously.

While it's common knowledge that Stark had not been himself at the time, his reticence on the subject had led many to believe that the CEO was uncomfortable with the legacy he'd left. But during the interview, he had nothing but positive things to say about it -- mostly the design of the virus, and how it allowed people to find an even playing field with the import community.

When asked if he would do it again, Stark just smiled, and responded with: "You never know."

NECROFANCY
As seen on Bwitter, Rumblr, the major social media sites, local news:
Many recently deceased individuals in De Chima are now... far less dead! RISE's Commander Sabriel has claimed responsibility in several interviews with local news, citing her actions as proof of the amazing power and benevolence of imPorts, and further proof of the need for RISE, since native authorities are unfit and unworthy of passing judgement on imPorts.

As for all the recently resurrected? Well, they lack vital signs, don't seem to heal, and are burned by sunlight and refuse to cross running water or any large body of water in general, but almost all of them seem happy to be 'alive' again when interviewed. Now, people from nearby towns and cities have started bringing their loved ones bodies to De Chima in the hope Sabriel will bring them back.

SKATERS TO THE LEFT
As seen in BlueTube, Bwitter, various trashy celebrity gossip tabloids:
Of all the imPort run panels at this year's FanPort, none have caused as much controversy as the skating panel run by imPort figure skaters Viktor Nikiforov, Yuri Plisetsky, and newcomer Otabek Altin. While fans were delighted to have their questions answered directly by the trio, it quickly became obvious that Nikiforov was uncharacteristically subdued. One panel attendee commented "It's like he wasn't even there!" Plisetsky appeared to have taken charge, answering any questions directed at his older rinkmate, but the teen also seemed to be struggling throughout the panel. Fans report he appeared sluggish, a fact particularly evident when it came time for the exhibition portion of their panel. Plisetsky, known for his superbly polished choreography, performed a piece that many felt was rushed and sloppy. Some fans speculate that the teen must not have slept the night before; there are numerous reports that Plisetsky was relying on a steady stream of coffee and espresso just to keep himself going.

Many suspect this was due to the departure of Nikiforov’s fiance, Yuuri Katsuki, earlier in the month, but events after the Q&A session paint a different story. Fans of the skaters witnessed Tohru Adachi, imPort private investigator and notably close to Nikiforov, violently slapping him across the face. While Nikiforov seemed to come out of his depressive slump after the slap, these events seem to indicate something darker. After the attack Nikiforov participated in the skating portion of the panel, performing a program that figure skating experts say was far too long for any skater to safely perform without any endurance super powers. Powers that, to this reporter's knowledge, Nikforov does not possess.

Could this have simply been a simple argument between friends? Perhaps, if friends were known to viciously strike each other. More likely, this is a red flag of a possible abusive relationship. After the exhibition, Nikiforov and Adachi were seen kissing in front of a group of fans, an event that, along with the brutal slap, has been captured and displayed on BlueTube. (Short no-audio clips available here and here.) Has Nikiforov fallen into a rebound relationship with a violent SO? It could explain his unwillingness to engage with his fans in the first half of the panel. It was only after Adachi's attack that he appeared to come to life, but was it due to being "snapped out of it", or did he fear a more serious assault? Perhaps this is why young Plisetsky harbors such a deep resentment for the detective. The animosity between the two is well documented, but the source of it has never been determined. Maybe this is the answer fans of Plisetsky have been searching for.

FLORIDA MAN DOESN'T CLEAN UP OWN MESS
As seen first as amateur video on BlueTube, then on local Heropan news stations:

2:20AM, July 7th. Amateur footage shot after the fact:
Property damage evident from what is SUSPECTED TO BE an imPort-related incident. No one could confidently identify the perpetrator, or perpetrators. Local news stations were on the scene thanks to a called-in tip.

Witnesses at the scene could not offer more concrete details.

EBB AND FLOW OF THE RIPTIDE
As seen on Bwitter and Rumblr:
When political memes started up around the other candidates, someone pointed out that Riptide had no memes about him. The internet and Riptide's fans rose to the occasion, and now, many memes of him exist and they kind of have a theme.

CODE SWITCH
The Homeland Security Advisory System has moved from GAMBOGE to FELDGRAU.

The Majority Report comes out the 10th and 20th of every month. You may find details and submit here. The cut-off time is 12:01 AM PST on the 9th and the 19th for the corresponding dates.

Hello everyone, Phichit Chulanont here! I’m still getting used to all of this but I’m trying to find my friends! This would be so much easier if I could just @ them, you know?

I guess if there’s anyone who knows me they should text me ASAP! Because I think I’m kind of lost??? ( ゚ヮ゚);;;;

[ This time Charles has learned not to raise his voice when talking to the camera. Instead he smiles pleasantly, crossing his fingers on his lap. He's not sitting on his wheelchair either, but on a sofa. He also has a fresh haircut, gone is the mullet and back is the floppy 60's do that is a lot shorter and appropriate for summer in any case. ]

Good day everyone, ladies, gentlemen. I hope you've had a good start of a summer.

[ Charles sure looks like he's had one. He no longer is red as a lobster like he did after the Swear-in. ]

I have two matters I'd like to address. Firstly I'd like to ask those of you who have been ported here earlier if you would be willing to share a bit of your history with me? I'd love to interview you for some details about the time you've spent here.

If you would be willing, please contact me.

Secondly, I'd like to offer again, any help someone might need with newfound powers and how to control them. If you find yourself in need of guidance on that field, I can help you.

I'm professor Charles Xavier, thank you for your attention.

[ Yuuri's had a lot of time to think about this, and even then, it's still confusing enough that he knows he's going to lose sleep over it later. Maybe run or skate until his legs are numb, but that is neither here nor there. Right now, he's managed to find a quiet place to sit so he can write this out—deleting it all at least three times before finally settling on something he thinks is decent enough to share with the world. If only he had a character limit. ]

Hello! I don't know if this has been asked before. I honestly couldn't find anything in any of the posts before this one, but I might have overlooked it... [ He has no idea why he just doesn't delete that and start out with the question, but here he is. ]

It really is possible to be here before and not remember anything, right? Does it come back later? What if you did something you think you wouldn't do but you've done it anyway and now you wonder if you should just keep doing it or not. Has this happened to anyone else?

Also, some of these powers seem dangerous. Don't you think?
[ He's sort of talking about his own. Or, at least, the one he'd read about in that file. ]
Can we trade them in or never use them? I think I'd be okay being a normal person again...

I'm sorry if this is something I could have read about somewhere. I don't want to inconvenience anyone!
[ And now he's going to try to forget all this madness for a while before he gets too depressed to think about it. ]

[In a complete and utter surprise, Futaba is posting to the network off anon. Mostly because she'd give away too many details to maintain her alias otherwise. The post starts out with two pictures of seemingly identical cats, both black and missing an eye. They are adorable though. And then comes the text.

Everyone needs to meet Caroline and Justine. Respectively. Caroline is coming home with me, so you have been warned Heropa #10. We have a cat now. No arguments.

If anyone knows or lives with one Goro Akechi...he's the one that has Justine. Good luck with that, because Caroline is the best of the pair. I mean look at that face.

What the hell are you supposed to do on a date? A first date if that matters. Something like that has to be special, doesn't it? So...what do people expect? Do you have to dress up? How do you know who pays for everything?

I really don't know anything about this junk so I'll take any advice people have got.

[There's the sound of some shuffling at first, mostly fabric over fabric and the odd squeak and scratch as Yosuke gets himself settled. Which he thought he already was but he hasn't actually attempted to you know address a huge host of people like this before so thinking he's ready and being ready are really two different things. Finally he clears his throat after the worst of the shuffling and scraping ends.]

So question how do they determine what your job here will be? I mean I'm not unfamiliar with retail life, I've only been doing it for a couple years back home, but I was kind of hoping to escape selling televisions. Or you know having really anything to do with them at a department store. I have literally worked in every job from unloading to stocking shelves to produce and I'm selling TVs. Or helping sell TVs. It's just so boring since TVs only really change a couple times of year and it's the same models in between and normally the customer isn't really looking for your advice on which one to get they just want you to take it off the shelf and ring them out and help them put it in their car, so it kind of makes having a couple of us in the department that actually know what we're talking about sort of dumb.

And before anyone asks I do actually mostly like my job. It's kind of nice not having anyone know who I am beyond what my name tag says. It makes things a lot quieter than I'm used too, but in a good way.

Oh and for those in De Chima, what is there to do for fun around her if you're under the age of like eighteen? I haven't really gone out exploring since I got here, just kind of trying to get familiar with my immediate area and where the various conveniences are. And if anyone knows where I can get a decent bike for a fair price I'd be grateful for the pointers.

Thank you.

[ It's only a voice that erupts over the network - clearly male, and deeply accented in what most could probably tell is Chicagoan, and if not, at least Northern and urban. That, and not terribly impressed with the state of things. ]

Who the fuck thought it was a good idea to use your limited amount of magic teleporting knick-knacks to link up to three bumfuck goddamn nowhere towns in Shitsville, Fuckyou Falls, and De Bullshit, USA? [ He only remembered the 'Falls' and the 'De' part, okay, he's improvising. You know what he means. ] I never even heard of these backwater trash dumps. They're probably run by hillbilly cannibals, and you know anything that ends is 'Falls' is gonna be a place where you lure dipshit teenagers to get the fuck murdered outta them, then probably stitched into a nasty skin sweater for ol' Billy Bob Psycho to wear to the family reunion, like that's gotta be horror movie law by now, anyone feel me on that?

[ Like 'Silent Hill', anything that sounds like it would make a nice landscape portrait is probably, most definitely, trying to kill you. That's what pop culture has taught Mickey, and he's sticking to his ghetto, thank you very much. At least no one there is a cannibal. Well, outwardly. ]

No one thought of, I dunno, New York? LA? Chicago? [ emphasis there, because that's the one he's really missing. ] Any of those places people actually give at least two almost-flaming fucks about? I dunno, maybe four, maybe some of you assholes have an excess of fucks to spread around, good for you, 'cause I'm all outta them at this point.

[ You can hear a snort, and it's easy to imagine Mickey shaking his head on the other end of the line. A brief pause, a reprieve from Mickey's stream of profane consciousness, and the last bit comes more sobered, almost bored. ]

That said, who do you gotta blow around here to get a lift to Chicago? I know a hot, ginger twink lookin' to arrange some travel plans.

Also got like a suitcase full'a knives up for trade. Hit me up.

Hmph. 'S about time someone saw I'm the Hero. [That is the biggest smirk in the history of them, that then twists into a nasty scowl.] Yet, two of my pokemon - including my sneasel- are missing, and no 'powers' will make up for that.

[Pot calling kettle black here, Niko.] Whatever. I can just replace the weaklings. There's gotta be pokemon around here; what kind of place doesn't have them? Where are they? Outside this Heropa?

Same with feeding. I doubt the local meat and blood's going to be enough for active battlers, never mind a Ghost-type. [By now the ball's in a tight, angry grip. Feeding his 'mons normally isn't an issue, what with most of them being predators and carnivores (save for berries etc because game mechanics), but now... Hmph.

How long his attempt at being polite/civil lasts is anyone's guess, though given he wants to keep that Registered Hero Status because Perks... he'll at least try.

[ The camera opens on the walls of Yusuke's bedroom, and the various paintings he has hung up there. At this angle, there's a painting of a collection of porcelain masks, shattered and clumsily put back together with super glue and tape, a cautiously hopeful fox with the sun in his eyes, and something more abstract sitting unfinished on an easel. It's dark and violent, if you're one to interpret such things, with shapes that have no recognizable figure, and yet, somehow, are angry and sad.

But Yusuke seems happy enough when he talks. ]


I am working on an art project. Like this, but bigger. A mural, perhaps. I will need the help of my fellow imPorts to complete it.

[ Yusuke turns the camera around, now facing him. If you know him, or are particularly perceptive, you might notice that he looks tired under his eyes, but his demeanor is cheerful enough, and he's smiling. Probably just lost track of time working last night. ]

It is about unity, between imPorts, and between us and the community that has absorbed us. Our powers are what sets us apart from the natives, making unity difficult, but despite that, they are a blessing. So, I am looking to observe or experience powers of different kinds, for a more rounded vision than just my own. Specifically, I am looking for people with healing abilities, fire, wind or weather manipulation, things like that, but anything that you all would be willing to share would be a tremendous help, you never know where inspiration will strike. [ He taps his chin, making sure not to forget anything. ] If you are comfortable modeling, that would be ideal, but if not, you would still be a great help.

And another, unrelated question, regarding all of your home worlds. Or even this one, for those who have been here long enough.

[ Yusuke's eyes dart somewhere off camera. He's staring pretty intently at...something, and continues looking at it, even as he continues speaking. ]

How often have you known hearts to change of their own accord? Where I come from, people don't will themselves into changing. Becoming better, choosing to make up for your past mistakes...it is probably not impossible, but rare, for cruel or abusive people to suddenly decide to atone for their actions.

Do you believe people can choose to better themselves, all on their own, or is there always some sort of outside influence?

[ ooc; Yusuke's story is only half true. In addition to eventual public art projects, he is compiling resources for his Skill Card ability, for which there is an opt-out post here if you would rather not have your characters' abilities copied. Please don't hesitate to use it! ]

[The video opens to the interior of his personal office, towering at the top of Wayne Enterprises headquarters in De Chima. At his desk, Bruce Wayne sits at the foreground of a sprawling cityscape, dressed in one of his many bespoken heather gray suits.]

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Bruce Wayne, CEO of Wayne Enterprises and holder of the Wayne Foundation charitable organization here in De Chima. After nearly a year here, the influences of the Cold War are more apparent to me than they've ever been. Though we stand in a modern age, the unfinished business of the late 1940s survive. The fear of conflict, and division not only of post-war Europe, but here at home.

We live in a difficult and dangerous world, and there are no easy or magical solutions. Both imPort and native citizens alike look around and see social inequality and injustice, but we must seek diplomatic solutions before resorting to warring with each other. And while force must always be an option, it should be be considered a last resort. While we must be relentless in combating against enemies both foreign and domestic, neither of us can bear the burden of fighting it alone. We should all be a part of a united coalition, led and sustained by forces here that have the means to protect themselves.

It wasn't entirely too long ago that I thought I could protect the world by myself, but I was wrong. Working together, staying together, as a team, we would be a force that could truly work for the ideals of peace and justice. Organizations like R.I.S.E. have the right idea, but it's one that needs to be expanded upon. Back home, my world is protected by the Justice League, a strike force comprised of the world's mightiest heroes. Stalwart protectors of life, and a defense against all threats-- terrestrial and extra-terrestrial alike.

Through a group like this, it's my hope that we can relieve the financial burden of emergency management during a crisis, paving a way for the creation of a peace dividend; public money available to cities for other, very necessary purposes like education and health care, and a way to continue the efforts that Ambassadors Pevensie and Senator Hundred have worked so hard to establish. We were told when we first arrived here that we were going to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. I think, up until now, a lot of us feel like that hasn't quite happened yet.

If elected, I hope that you're all ready to change that.

[Sabriel's in her office at RISE headquarters- it seemed the appropriate place for this announcement. She's pulled on her armor and surcoat, her expression serious and solemn as she speaks.]

Major General Armstrong has been Ported out. As of now, I'm RISE's commander and I'm naming Jacob Taylor my second in command. [And then her tone shifts, becoming stern and businesslike.]

For those unfamiliar with us, RISE is a group of registered imPorts who work with the government to deal with dangerous imPort criminals and other problems local authorities can't handle- which seem to occur on a somewhat regular basis, and perform outreach to make sure our community has a good relationship with the local population. Our headquarters is in Martian Falls, but we operate in all the porter cities.

I know some of you have had bad experiences with governments in your own worlds, so let me assure you- we're not going to lock you up unless you've committed a crime and it's part of your sentence, or force you to fight battles you don't want to, or investigate you for being openly critical of the government. [Especially since shes privately suspicious of them herself.] But if you cause harm to the people of this world, or your fellow imPorts, then we'll have a problem.

I'd also like to announce that RISE is seeking new members. You need to be registered and not have committed any serious crimes in this world. Beyond that, I just need you to be comptent and ready to work with a team. If you're interested in working as a field agent, I'd like you to be proficient enough in nonpowered combat that you won't be helpless if hit with a nullifier, but we can use more than just fighters.

If you have any further questions, ask them here, or stop by Helix Station and ask them in person.
