[ What have we here? A white mech with a big grin. Is he new? Most of the network wouldn't recognize his face. He puffs up happily. ]

I finally have my body back! It only took me several months...

Would you look at that!

[ Definitely a familiar voice. ]

Oh-! Right! It's me, Drift! If anyone wants to go for a celebration drive, let me know. I'm in a really good mood.

Uh. A few things. For everyone who saw Ramir's previous- er. Message. I'm fine, everything is fine. I just happened to discover one of my powers wasn't very... fortunate. But I'm okay now, everyone is okay. Sorry to worry anyone.

Secondly, if anyone needs any self-defense training, I'll be more than happy to help. In light of recent events, I would be elated to be able to help anyone feel more safe and secure.

Lastly, I am pleased to announce I will be opening a spiritual cleansing and homeopathic shop soon in Heropa. If anyone is curious, I will be happy to answer any questions on the matter.

I see we've got a nice flood of new arrivals, for those of you who I've not met, my name is Drift. I look forward to making your acquaintance.

[ When the camera turns on, there's already a smear of red across the lens, and the scene is a whole lot of jostling motion. Then Ramir comes into sight with wide eyes and a panicked expression, until she sees it's running. She forces composure after that. ]

Heeeeeeyyyy, guys. How's it going?

[ There's some crying and screaming going on in the background, which Ramir seems happy to ignore. Except for the quick sideways glance she darts over at it, anyway. ]

Haha, rhetorical question. I don't really care. Listen, I've got kind of a thing going on—

[ An interruption from offscreen: ] Oh my god it’s bigger than I thought! I'm still bleeding!

Shut up Drift, I'm working on it! [ Aaannddd back to the camera: ] So anyway, does anyone know how to, say, sew a guy back together? Or maybe just put a sword back in him. I'd take either one. [ A quick smile, as she moves to end it. ] So, yeah, lemme know. Thanks.

[Because surely you haven't seen enough new faces, there's another one. The elf is saying something that's clearly him cursing.]

Fenedhis lasa, "it's easy to use" they said! Well, I'll have you know, I'm no expert in tiny little things with blinking lights that are, apparently, not enchanted in some way.

Yes, well, I think the next time a bunch of men in strange clothing cram me into the oddest caravan I'd ever seen, I'll decide perhaps to take what they say with a grain of--

...Wait, is this working now?

[Seems like the form of the day is a young, tired looking girl. Her hair is matted, shadows under her eyes, and smears of dirt on her face. She's wearing tattered clothes and, most alarmingly, there are what appear to be shackles on each wrist, broken chains swinging from them.

The comm tag reads Bartimaeus, no more no less.]

I have some disturbing news about one of the worlds you've heard about, here. [The girl's voice is young, though the tone doesn't... exactly match up with her appearance.] Though it shouldn't come as much of a surprise if you've been listening.

Right- I am Bartimaeus of Uruk, the Serpent of Silver Plumes, one who watched the rise and fall of eight World Empires and fought in the battles of Troy and Prague, who walked the streets of Rome in its glory!

And I- er. [The girl, quite frankly, looks embarrassed.] I'm also a slave. [Her arms raise, and she wiggles them enough to have the shackles and chains clanging together. Ta-da...]

So. Kitty Jones, if you know her, was telling the truth. Just terrible, what's happening in London. Erm- attacks! Deadly, violent attacks. [Uh] And those cursed magicians, forcing us to fight and attack and torturing us if we don't do a good enough job. Been going on for an age, really. Between you and me, I think they get too much of a kick out of watching the Shriveling Fire at work.

[There's a long, awkward pause after that before the girl raises her wrists again, wiggling them to get that clanking going again- has he shown off the chains yet? Because he thought they were a good touch.

Ahhh, you know what. That's good enough. Looking pleased with her work, the girl reaches out and turns off the feed. Look Kitty he helped!]

[ So hey, this is Annie. She's been a little hazy around the edges for almost a week now, having trouble even grasping certain items, cups slipping through her grasp- it's getting really out of hand. ]

Alright, this is getting ridiculous.

Has anyone else got powers sort of like ... Not invisibility-- Intangibility? Or something sort of like it? Because it's just being a right pain for me not being able to get a handle on it.

I can offer tea and lunch in exchange for any help, and I promise, I'm excellent, proper company.

-- Oh, my name's Annie, and really, I won't bite. I'd just really love to get the hang of this ... whatever it is.

[ Well, here he is. A scrawny fourteen-year-old boy hanging around outside of De Chima residence #001, seriously considering whether or not it would be a good idea to go in. Hiro trusts authority about as far as he can throw 'em - so, not much with his current stick arms. So there he is, wavering back from the threshold of the house ... and opting to check out this network instead. Maybe he can dig up enough info to set his mind at ease.

He's hacked into the security settings on his comm to make him show up as anonymous on the network. Not hard to crack or trace, but also not immediately broadcasting his full name to the world at large. ]

so, what. everyone just uses their full names on here? doesn't that strike anyone else as being weird?

[ He settles himself on a small bench near #001, still tapping furiously. ]

because that sounds weird to me. no offense, but wow who taught all of you guys about internet privacy, facebook? after getting pulled here we really oughta be a little more paranoid.

speaking of which: Cluster. tech company. on a scale of one to Cyberdyne, how evil is this place?

[ He hunkers down after that, splitting his attention between the screen and #001 behind him. If anyone looks like they're living there, he sure does want to get a good look at 'em. Maybe even start a conversation if they're prospective roommates ... ]

[ okay, she's not pissed, but Teresa's definitely annoyed, and impatient enough to take to her communication device before she's managed to talk herself down a little more. so yeah, she sounds a little harsher than she did that first time around, again - not mad! just. impatient. ]

So. I'm back, I guess. Not that it feels like I was ever gone. I fell asleep here, woke up back in that room - new job assignment, new apartment. And apparently I've missed some time. Does that happen a lot? Some kind of Porter glitch, maybe? Or should I be concerned for my state of mind right now?

[ yo please someone just tell her it's not the chip in your brain. ... not that she really told anyone about that. but you know. ]

To anyone with answers, thanks. To anyone I was getting to know and I guess just- disappeared on. Um, sorry. I'm going to make sure it won't happen again. [ what a weird thing to apologize for, it makes her brow furrow before she huffs a laugh. ] And to anyone I haven't met - Hey, I'm Teresa. I'm new. Ish. And I'm apparently a member of the Parks and Recreation department here now. [ she nods, then shakes her head - okay, right, whatever - and shuts the feed ]

[ private to NEWT and THOMAS ]
Hey. [ her attempt at seeming calm drops now that the feed is locked, and while she's not in compete panic mode, she just seems- really overwhelmed. more than she'd like to admit. ] Can one of you explain this to me? Please?

My friends, after learning about the holidays you celebrate on Earth, participating and doing some reading, I have been wondering...

The holidays are all about family and loved ones. Tell me, who are the valuable people in your life? What is important about them? How do they bring you peace? Are they a friend or related to you somehow? Are they here, or are you missing them?

Please, share with me your fondest thoughts.

[ On this fine day, Booster Gold is wearing a party hat. ]

Happy negative 428th birthday to me!

In case you were wondering, no, it's not too soon after Christmas to start showering me with gifts and attention. It's never too soon. Or too late, for that matter. I also accept cash, gift certificates and those little homemade I.O.U. coupons for backrubs and household chores. And well wishes, I guess, if you're cheap.

Oh, and macaroni portraits! Glitter obviously not optional.

[Wing appears on the network looking as thoughtfully calm as always. This is merely a clever deception, however, as he is, in fact, in a lot of pain. Not that he'd openly admit that, but he does have a very important question he wishes to ask the organics of this world.]

Let's say, hypothetically, you are a human who has a pair of wings, and you injure one of those wings in a reckless bridge-diving exercise. Would you go to the doctors for such an injury, or a veterinarian?

[He's been mulling over this for about two hours now. It's been a very long process.]

This is all hypothetical, mind you. But not so hypothetical that immediate answers won't be appreciated.

[Locked to Fulcrum and Ratchet]

Greetings friends! I've got something for you! Consider it a "Christmas" gift. That's what the locals call it!

[As is his habit, Ted's probably surrounded by little bits and pieces of computers, machinery, and somewhere off to the side there are probably schematics for his next car or something. But today, at least, he's wearing one of those dumb menorah hats and giving the camera a little wave.]

Hey, Heropa! Happy Hannukah. Or Christmas. Or Festivus. Which I guess only applies if you're from the 25th century. If you are, don't worry! We've got you covered. Or if you celebrate anything else. What I'm trying to say is -- Booster and I are having a holiday party next week. A couple days before Christmas, so we don't interfere with anyone's plans. Whoever wants to come is welcome to! You can bring food, we'll have latkes, a Festivus pole, there'll be the airing of grievances. All sorts of good wholesome holiday fun. ...Okay, and we won't complain if you bring booze, too.

Anyway, let me know if you want to stop by! If you do, see you all on the 23rd.

I have NO idea what Christmas is, but I totally want to take part in it! So far, my understanding of it is that you give presents, drink eggs, kill trees and put them in your home and decorate them, and bake stuff! Sounds like my kind of thing! Except for the killing trees thing, that sounds wrong.

So I want to decorate my place with festive stuff. What should my list be? I'm sorta new to this and all.

[ The video turns on abruptly, facing Drift, who is covered in what looks like pink snow at first. As the video refocuses, it becomes clear it's actually petals, raining down from somewhere offscreen and piling up slowly on him.

He doesn't seem too happy.

This is it? This is my power.

[ He waves a hand in a violent gesture, sending petals dumping off in little pink cascades. ]

I spent five hours meditating for this?!

I can't even turn it off! If anyone wants to trade, please by all means. More importantly, I need some help uh-

Turning this off?

[The feed clicks on, a little too close to a deeply disgruntled and slightly uncomfortable face. Ratchet pulls the phone back, scowling.]

Great. Like I didn't have enough things to do.

[He picks up his file, shaking it at the camera, and his lip curls slightly.]

I have no idea what the hell half of this means, but I suspect I'm going to find out. In the meantime, does anyone actually know how we got here? Or how... our bodies may have been potentially altered? [That last is a little cagey. The last time he was on Earth--and this does seem to be Earth, even if it's a little weird--most of the humans were not terribly Cybertronian-friendly.] Either way, this registered/unregistered business is a load of slag--if anyone needs medical attention, I'm in Residence #036, I'll see what I can do.

And, not to inspire a fit of overconfidence in anyone, but if there's a good place to brush up on medical procedures and general practice around here, I'd appreciate it if somebody would let me know.

So, anyone know anywhere that’s hiring? I think I may have just lost my job. [ There’s a distinct and intense amount of bitterness in Ellie’s voice and the quasi-British accent of hers is slightly thicker than it normally sounds. ] For some reason my boss decided that taking a place called Tattlecrime seriously was a bloody brilliant idea and no amount of logic was going to get him to see otherwise. [ A beat ] Your eyes are two different colors, Langford and you've never explained that, he said. Lends some credibility to the story he said, also makes me look a bit suspicious.

[ She puts up air quotes before she starts talking again and when she does speak she sounds even more annoyed. Who knew that was possible at this point? ] We’re going to ask you to go on leave while we order up some tests for you to go through. We’ll also need you to fill out some forms in regards to your eye and the origins of the infection spoken about.

[ She runs a hand through her hair and slumped her shoulders slightly. ]

I don’t think he liked the story of how I lost my eye. Or of what the infection actually was. [ Maybe she shouldn't have lost her temper so much. ] Doesn't really matter I guess, I don’t think I’ll be going back. [ She’s also not sure if they’d let her back in... ]

[The camera turns on with a view of Desmond's bathroom mirror, Desmond himself reflected back in just a t-shirt and jeans. Once he's made sure he has the thing recording properly he turns around and goes back to his bedroom, where his hoodie is half crumpled on the bed. He moves aside part of the sleeve to reveal a small calico kitten nestled into the red lining of the hood for a nap. At the disturbance the kitten stretches out and looks up at Desmond and mews.]

So as you guys can see, I've got a new roommate. [Desmond chuckles and reaches in to pet the kitten's head. It accepts his touch for a moment before batting at his finger with its paws and trying to chew on his fingernail. He tolerates it for now.] Found her on the way home last night. I'm kind of terrible at names, though. Any suggestions?

I get that there are bigger things going on, but I'm looking for a fork and knife I can't bite through.

[He'll lift up the evidence to the camera. It's a metal fork with the prongs neatly severed as if by, say, super strong teeth? This is the fourth he's been through this week. Really has to stop reading the network or other interesting things while he's having lunch.

Laugh it up, swim buddies (you know who you are). This is a legitimate issue at this point. He can't keep buying silverware, and with things as they are, he's not of a mind to go to the government over this. Rather have another 'Port-friend give him an alternative.

Can't even enjoy the holiday with this looming over him!]

I don't have much saved up, but if you have a solution, let's talk.
