I hope everyone enjoyed their time in the Vivarium at last month's swear-in if you went. It seems like it went off alright! I've been doing some more work on it since then, so if anyone wants to be a bug tester, let me know.

What do you all do to have fun in winter? Not necessarily about the holidays. It's been a while since I was top-side for this length of time, much less anywhere with snow.

mathemagier: this is the letter 4 (Lecture)
[personal profile] mathemagier
Those of you from an alternate Earth, what similarities or differences have you noticed between this world and yours? Specifically, I'm looking to pinpoint where a great deal of our common ground lies, and if there's a trend where most timelines appear to diverge. Discussion encouraged.

As well, if there are any research institutions with room for a theoretical physicist and biologist interested in solving the mysteries of this world, please do get in touch.

[ Consider him curious. Maybe he shouldn't be and maybe he shouldn't even bother. But, sometimes at night—and after a martini or several, shh—certain questions and thoughts rise to the forefront of his mind no matter how much he may wish for them not to.

And, well, since he has some form of an audience here, Magnus figures: why not??

It's just audio for now, his tone is fairly even with just a small touch of amusement. Because if he can't poke fun at certain things, what's the point. Right? Right. ]

There's always quite a lot of discussion over what to do with time. Complaints about wishing to have more or wishing it would pass faster. So, I'm curious. What would you do if you had an infinite amount of time?

[Today's video showcases Ed sprawling haphazardly across an armchair. Judging from the books and notepads strewn about, he was probably trying to get some work done. Guess he gave up on that idea.

His tone is clipped and frustrated when he speaks up.]

What the hell is with the porter? It brings people here and then just send them home again a week or two later! How does that make any sense? For anything! There's no goddamn point to it!

[He slouches further down in his seat and kicks at a notebook balanced precariously on the arm of the chair, sending it tumbling to the floor.] Can't even… [His mouth twists in a sullen scowl, and he drags a hand roughly across his face.]


There's no way I can get any work done today. It's…kind of an anniversary, and with that asshole leaving on top of it— Ugh.

...Look. Just tell me about something from your home. Something you're looking forward to. Someone you miss. Just…anything you've had to leave behind that you don't want to forget about.

It's a good day to remember.

Hi, everyone. If you haven't met me yet, I'm Catherine!

I wanted to ask everyone-- what's your favorite place, ever? It doesn't matter if it's impossible for you to get there right now, or even if it's not real. I just want to hear about where you'd be if reality wasn't an obstacle. Tell me all about it.

[The video feed cuts in to show a desk piled high with books and notepads filled with a scratchy looking scrawl—the one or two pages close enough to the camera to be read are filled with what look like journal entries about someone's sightseeing experiences. The screen jitters briefly while someone adjusts the camera, and then Edward steps into view, dropping smoothly into the desk's chair.

For a moment he squints at the camera suspiciously.]
...This thing better be on.

[He huffs sharply and settles back in the chair, apparently deciding to assume that it's working for now.]

So I think Mustang asked how many people here are scientists a while ago, but I've got some more specific questions for you. How many of people here have done work in neuroscience? Specifically the way memories are formed and recalled. I've become really interested in it since arriving here, but I can only do so much research by myself.

I'm also pretty curious about wormholes and...teleportation I guess. I've heard that some people have technology that can do that at home, so if there's anyone here who knows about how things like that work I'd love a chance to talk with you.

And... [He pauses here and clenches his right hand, frowning down at it for a moment before turning his attention back to the camera.] This is a question for anyone. Has there been anyone who had a power sealed away at home that they got back here? If there is then what... What was it like for you?

[Sometime in the evening, after all this happens, there's the Iron Bull's unmistakable voice. Though, instead of how lighthearted it usually is, there's an edge to it.]

Hey! Any of you assholes out there ever wanted to go a few rounds with the Iron Bull?

Now's your chance.

[He'll send a photo of himself standing in the middle of a park in Nonah. There aren't many people around, somehow, in this location, but Bull shouldn't be hard to locate.]

I'm feeling the urge to hit something. Where's the Seeker and her stick when you need her...

[As the feed begins, you, the ever committed viewer are presented with the image of a young man reclining on a couch that he’s presently appropriated for himself. To the more studious observer this young man has some little tells that just may give way who he is. The green eyes, the dark hair, better still is all of the green and gold armor, or maybe it’s the horned headgear…or perhaps you’ve met him in another life?

And for those who haven’t had the catastrophic pleasure, the day is still very young.

For his part, the young man appears to be more amused than hindered by his current predicament, or maybe he’s just really good at hiding it.]

It took me a little while to figure out what really bothers me about this realm, I paced my lovely new quarters, home to my lovely new housemates, [wiggles his fingers at the camera, if you’re out there lovely housemates “hello”] for a full hour before it hit me suddenly!

[His eyes go wide and bright for a moment.]

It isn’t the downsizing of my power, although that is really, really inconvenient and it makes me feel very sad on the inside. [Do you see his sad face, his terrible pout, it’s an awful pout.]

It isn’t the fact that I miss The All-Mother dogging my every waking moment, because I really do not. There is only so many times that the head of one’s mother can make an appearance in the punch bowl before one throws their hands in the air and declares themselves done. I lose more neighbors that way.

[What the Hel is he going on about?]

It is possible that I do miss my brother a bit, just a bit, but shush, that’s a secret. [Not so big a secret apparently.] That’s not what’s bothering me either, can you imagine? What’s bothering me is this: who comes up with all of these super hero and super villain names? I read comic books, I know generic when it cold-cocks me. Why, just the other day I was blindsided by a heavy-handed, well-meaning doer of good, upholder of lofty justice, and I can still hear the ringing in my ears!

[Now we’re at the heart of it, the meat and potatoes, the problem to end all problems. You'll have to forgive his wild tangents, he does that sometimes.]

What’s the secret? Is there a committee of seventy-three specific people involved? Do the unwashed masses come together and vote? Or, by Odin’s empty eye socket, do you unfortunate souls choose these names yourself?

[These are serious life-altering questions here, that require your serious, consideration! And, of course, someone needs to shut him up or he will go on like this all day.]

[ A purple armored humanoid is broadcasting from in front of a white wall. That's all that can really be gleaned from the visual of the feed. North has decided that the best way to handle this is to keep as many personal details out of it, so not even his helmet is removed. Anyone who attempts to extrapolate geodata from the feed will find that it is now set to the North Pole. ]

This is Agent North Dakota of... formerly of the UNSC. I think it's a couple hundred years too early for that. Nowadays, I guess you could say I'm from the United States.

I've done some scanning of the Network, and I've found evidence of some of my teammates having been here in the past.

[ Actually, it was Theta who scanned the Network, but North is determined to not immediately mention the little AI. It's worrying that he's found evidence of himself - or someone claiming to be himself - without having any knowledge of the situation.

North has asked Theta to look into it further, comparing the archived videos of that "North" and the others with data compiled from their known counterparts, but it seems to be taking an inordinately long time. Theta feels distracted, anxious. That's never a good sign.

If there are any active or retired members of the UNSC, please identify yourselves. There are too many reported instances of imPorts disappearing from this universe to assume that you are still present.

[ It would be nice if South was here and their relationship was its old, playfully competitive self once more, but North would settle for having any of the Freelancers. York would be a solid choice. He'd like to know what Delta would make of this. ]

so since c l e a r l y this network/glorified message board isn't used for anything actually important i'll ask it here

free cute phones (not sketchy at all btw). a file full of info on us (again: SO not sketchy). crappy apartments. roommates. big government. inter dimensional travel or w/e.
this is all some special kind of bs but has anyone addressed the bs fact that the jobs we get assigned are like some kind of freaking joke
it's a little too insulting imo

has anyone gotten a job that they can take seriously
