JANUARY 10TH, 2016


As seen initially on all major news networks, then on the RSS feeds of news sites:
The gala event of the season was sixty-five million years in the making. Sorry, that's 3.5 billion. The history of life on Earth was on display at De Chima, featuring appearances by some of prehistory's most famous faces. But it was a real, baby T. rex that stole the show, and the hearts of those present. Funds raised by the event benefitted SELF, a new organization providing help to non-humans.

As seen on Lulzfeed, Rumblr, BlueTube, everywhere!:
Do you follow Agito and Hiro? Do you like twenty-four hours GAMING LIVESTREAMS? DO YOU SUPPORT CHARITY? Then good news! Agito and Hiro, technologically savvy imPorts, have already played to fundraise (a la Extra Life) on the 1st to raise money for the Heropa Health Clinic.

As seen on reporting from national news television, international news cycles, newsprint, amateur BlueTube videos mostly of the green fog descending, botanists discussing the jungle that had replaced Heropa:
Crisis had struck dear Heropa on the day of January 2nd 2016. We thought we could at least have some relative peace in the new year but it only took one day before an incident struck. On the 2nd imPorts were alerted to another imPort causing trouble. What appeared to be a criminal running a rampage turned far worse. A heavy green fog would roll in that day and consume all of Heropa. Many of the citizens and some of the local imPorts were lost inside the fog but the fog was not the only unwelcoming and ominous thing that took place.

When the fog lifted Heropa no longer stood the marvel that we all knew. Instead a jungle took it's place and one can only describe it as a frightening sight. Clearly the work of an imPort had been at hand. Only but a few hours later did we receive a video that revealed the cause of the jungle landscape, one that we dare not show. In short, it had turned out that someone we thought a hero was merely wearing a mask to hide darker intentions. Many would know him as a sprightly character from fiction, one we all grew up with and loved, but instead has proven to be more sinister than we realized. His name, is Peter Pan.

Many imPorts gathered to the edge of the Jungle to thwart whatever spell he had cast and didn't return for four days. On the sixth of January on lookers outside of what could be considered Peter Pan's twisted Neverland saw a golden light spread out from the center of the jungle and like it had never happened, Heropa stood once more.

The locals who had been trapped in Neverland had this to say. "We were trapped, not just inside there but in our own heads. We didn't remember anything about ourselves, but this warped nightmare we were made to think we lived. I don't remember much of it but it was just horrible. The things I saw, the things I did..."
More people commented that it was like some mass brainwashing, that made them do Pan's bidding or worse: be his play things for his brainwashed mass. It can only be described as insidious. Formerly cursed witnesses had said some people had actually died inside the jungle, though the proof of that is still unclear. Ongoing investigations are looking into finding some of the missing people that were inside Pan's Neverland.

In related news, officials believe that in a string of kidnappings that have happened in Maurtia Falls was done by none other than Pan himself. Care takers of some of these children often commented that before the victim was taken they would often speak of a figure playing pan pipes, something that Peter himself is known for. There is no trace of these missing children yet but we are assured that they will be looking into this.

We are still looking from comments from the brave imPorts who thwarted such an evil but we remain here to ask; Where is Peter Pan now? Is he alive? Do we have to fear another curse?

As heard on international air waves:
The girl that Moscow claimed to be Lachesis is now missing.

As seen in the 24-hour national news cycle:
Moscow has been issuing threats against imPorts. They claim that unnamed imPorts have made attempts against the native human they claim to be Lachesis, and now they have finally succeeded in their plot. The Secretary of State to the US has issued this statement: "Moscow does not have Lachesis, and our imPorts have made no move against this fable. This is but base propaganda intended to spark tension."

But word from Moscow is adamant. ImPorts will pay.

The Homeland Security Advisory System has moved from PLUM to STYGIAN BLUE because of Pan's antics. Thanks, Pan.

Who is this "Lachesis" character? Other than a probable Soviet propaganda tool, that is.

[Qubit attaches a few pertinent links.]

Short version: an entity from an alternate-dimension Earth where some of our fellow imPorts lived prior to its destruction. Until recently, it was widely assumed she controlled the Porter on this Earth as well.

So the greek god of fate is transporting people across dimensions to the USA?

Color me dubious.
superposition: (So what difference does it make?)

Oh, same here. I strongly doubt she's the Lachesis of myth. But at any rate, she's not the one doing it now. It's possible she's been missing for upwards of a year.

Some kind of hyperdimensional thing, then. Whatever it calls itself. If the Russians had control of it, they'd have their own army of confused otherworldly tourists like us, wouldn't they?

Possession and control are two different things. Just look at the Porter.
mammal_robot: (He's put upon)

Good point.
