[For those who know her, Sadie's natural sparkle is slightly dimmer as she appears on the network today, just a touch. For those who don't, it might well go unnoticed, as her smile is as broad as ever.]

Hello, darlings. For those of you who watch my show—and I'm sure it's many of you, as you all have such excellent taste—my producers have decided to do a special edition to celebrate Valentine's Day, celebrating the wonderful thing called love and ways we celebrate it through time and distance!

[Just for a moment, Sadie glances down to her wedding ring.]

Now, thanks to my vast experience speaking to ghosts, I have the time covered, but what about distance? I can't think of any distance greater than different worlds, so tell me, how do my dear fellow imPorts celebrate love?

[It's a nice night out. After all that chaos, things seem more or less like they're at a peaceful lull. Let's fix that.]


I didn't do anything this time! Where do they get off, yanking me around like that?! Sh-shit-

[He cuts off with a pained sound. His breathing sounds strained, and there's a soft thump. Then he keeps growling into the comm.]

I should have smashed their precious little machine when I had the chance... And then every last one of them! Then take out this whole stupid country if I have to!

To hell with this stupid place!!

[Sabriel's posting this from a couch in De Chima 007. She looks better rested than she did during the blackout, and even offers the camera a polite smile.]

Hello, everyone. I hope everyone who was injured during that mess is recovering- If you need a healer, I'll do what I can. Although some of us will probably be busy tracking down those remaining escaped imPorts- but I'm getting off topic.

[Sabriel pauses, then pushes on.]

During the blackout, there was a demand for imPort healers due to a shortage of local nurses- there still is, by the way. While we can't choose the powers the Porter gives us, I can teach imPorts Charter magic- namely, how to use it to heal.

Charter magic is a form of magic in my world that doesn't require any inborn power to learn- although of course there is considerable variation in both power and aptitude among its practitioners. Those who have been baptized with a Charter mark- [And here Sabriel taps the faint symbol on her own forehead, the mark flaring at her trust before fading away just as quickly.] can learn to access the Charter and draw upon its power for various uses- to attack, to defend, to create, and most importantly, to heal.

For some reason, I can only baptize and teach imPorts. So I'm looking for students- people who want to learn how to heal, but I can teach more than that if you can be trusted to use it responsibly. [Sabriel might be an optimist, and she's been called too trusting by some, but she's not going to teach destructive Charter magic until she's sure her students won't use it for criminal or outright petty purposes.]

I need to warn you though- Charter magic requires patience and dedication to master, and the consequences of overreaching or misusing it can be disastrous to both the mage and anyone near them. But when used properly, it's both safe and useful. If anyone would like a demonstration, I'm happy to offer one in person- it tends to cause trouble for electronics.

[ooc: Sabriel can teach characters with an open power slot how to use Charter magic. This requires a power update submission, but not a port out. I have more information here.]

[With a bowed head, the man on screen acknowledges his audience. His features are sharp, his smile disciplined, but however cleverly disguised his inner machinations, even on camera there is an unmistakable air of ostentation about him. How fortunate for those listening that he appears to have politely reined that in a little.]

I am Seymour Guado, a Maester of Yevon from Spira...a world that I suspect none among you are familiar with.

[Seemingly apologetic, Seymour shakes his head and offers a clear view of blue veins like a mask over his eyes and his very, very strange hair, a sort of blue-violet and horned. Behind him is the interior of his new home in Maurtia Falls, a temporarily spartan-looking abode that is also home to Luffy and Zoro.]

I cannot say that I'm pleased to find myself here as I've a great many responsibilities that require my attention where I come from, but I will nevertheless endeavor to help those in need, just as I would do back home. In fact, nothing would please me more—except, perhaps, the opportunity to become better acquainted with those of you sharing my circumstance.

[Here, he gestures towards the camera with one hand, large and manicured, with long nails barely visible for the billowy sleeve of the robe he's wearing.]

Might you introduce yourselves? And, should you have advice you wish to share, or questions that weigh heavily upon your minds, as I'm certain you must...please do not hesitate to ask. I will gladly answer to the very best of my ability.

[A final polite goodbye before, taking a step back and bowing his head above hands cupped together before him, Seymour cuts the feed.]

[Social networking had never really been Frank's forte, even before he was declared dead to the public. When he found the communicator in his welcome package, and the explanation of the imPort network, he couldn't help but grimace. The greeter interpreted it a smile, and let him go on his way.

Now, he sits in a corner cafe, watching city life unfold around him, with the phone in his hand. A few of the posts he's found so far have actually caught his attention-- apparently some of these supervillain assholes really don't mind showing their faces. Not really a bad thing-- easier to find.

What would be harder to find, however, would be people he can trust. Especially if people here know who he is. May as well test the waters.]

So are there any good coffee shops around here? Because this Starbucks stand in tastes like shit

[When the camera comes on, all you see is a very large face; it's also upside-down. The person on the other end blinks, turning the device around, peering closely at it. She doesn't seem to realize that she's turned it on.] Why do I feel like that if I shake this thing too hard, it's going to blow up in my face?

[She pulls it back, and though the image is still upside-down, it's now clear that the face belongs to a young woman wearing an outfit resembling a bedlah. Oh, and the curtain of purple behind her? It's her hair, and there's a lot of it.] I... don't think I should trust something this small that talks. How the heck does it even work? There's no dynamo or steam generator or anything like that.

And it doesn't feel magic. [She leans back in, and audibly sniffs the device.] Doesn't smell magic, either. Boy, Uncle Mimic would have a field day with this thing.

...hey, that red light wasn't always on the front, was it? What the heck does "recording" mean?

[And realization.] Ah, crud.

Could use a lookout, maybe a driver. 80/20 split. Negotiable, depending on what you have to offer, [ he elaborates, deadly serious and with enough of a drawl to ring distinct to any ears with a mind to pick him out of a lineup, later. ]

Interested parties inquire within.

[ Short and sweet today, people. The video flicks on and Dorian is there, smiling and shining in all his splendor. Gaze upon glory, etc etc. ]

Greetings, all! It has come to my attention there are several holidays celebrated around this time of year. Granted, I don't particularly know them as we celebrate different ones in Thedas, the basic premise seems to be the same: [ he waits a beat and his smile grows wider; ] a party!

So, here I am, extending an invitation to all of you to join me this coming Saturday. Directions are attached should you need them. Time is sundown until whenever you feel the need to leave. I do hope to see you there!

[ With that, he's done and the feed clicks off and it's followed by directions to his home. ( Corresponding log is up here to anyone who feels like stopping by. Even if Dorian doesn't know them, everyone's literally welcome! ) ]

Can you get me an arm or a leg or something to experiment on? I haven't made any friends with morgue personnel yet.

Eyeballs would be fantastic too. The best I could do lately was a severed finger I found in a gutter.

[ Felix gets right to the point, sounding a bit exasperated. ]

Does anybody here know anything about pets?

[ Pets is a very broad category with vastly different answers depending on the animal involved. But those are nitpicky details that happen to other people. People who have had pets before and know how to take care of living things. Not a killer like Felix who can barely take care of himself properly. ]

Like, what keeps them happy and healthy and whatever? Maybe how to make them stop destroying your shit? Or—

[ His attention shifts rather abruptly away from what he's doing. ]

Hey! No! Don't you dare, that's mine!

[ The sounds of a brief scuffle can be heard: some rustling cloth, a bit of cursing, and a low rumbling, almost rusty growl. A moment later, Felix adds, disgruntled; ]

Mostly that last one. Also how to teach these assholes boundaries.

hi everyone! i'm karina and i'm pretty new here

won't take up too much of your time, sooo... quick question!

if you could design your own superhero costume, what would it like? function over form or a combination of both? what matters most to you when you're out and about and helping people out?

or what DOES your costume look like, if you've already made one and you're in a position to tell

thanks in advance everyone ♥

easy to pick up hobbies that you do with your hands, and go

sidebar: does anyone want a dreamcatcher? because I've got a lot of dreamcatchers.

( no seriously. a lot of dreamcatchers. she can get about an hour of sleep a night on a good night, so far, and the rest of her nights are spent failing at crafting and making dreamcatchers. )

[ Greetings good folks of the network! This one is coming to you during the evening hours but not too terribly late at night. A nice time of night. And he won't be taking up a lot of time, but Dorian does have a burning question that needs answering! So, he turns on his device and his voice is playful, curious. ]

Hello and good evening! Now, I have another fun, distracting sort question for you all.

[ Are you guys ready for this? This is so serious!!! ]

What would you say, in your opinion, is the quintessential date activity?

( utilizing the network took some practise, took some figuring out - some watching what everyone else does and some asking stupid questions. when she makes her own first post, though, she's taken the time to make it polished; the video opens with her perfectly centered in frame, a little bit too conscious of the strangeness to be entirely natural but giving it the old college try. there's a smile! it's a nice enough thing and she is a striking young woman, finely pointed ears emerging high from long (--longer than can be seen on the video, reaching her waist) lilac hair, diminutive in a way that even a video doesn't disguise, the hand that tucks it behind one of those ears elaborately tattooed. )

Normally, to talk to this many people, I have to write a lot of notes and find some pigeons. This is sort of lovely, isn't it? You just talk to anybody you want to, anywhere, whenever you like?

( that's so great. she can just call people whenever she wants. she can look at strangers across the world without magic or - this is all so cool. what if she needs to talk to someone at three in the morning. they will have to talk to her, probably. )

Do you meet people like this? Do any of you speak French? Who is any of you, anyway?

( come and be her friend, any of you. the video ends, and

then abruptly begins again: )

Also where do you buy your soap and clothes especially socks and what sort of soap is all right for rats? Thank you! In advance! Now I'm finished!

okay I've noticed something and maybe it's the whole "superhero" theme this place has but

am I seriously the only fat dude?

I have not seen another fat guy. or person. that is an imPort.

not that I'm self-conscious or anything I'm great and supremely handsome and blah blah blah. but a spade's a spade. and I think I'm the only spade and that's weird to me.

[ The video flickers on and it's a steady shot of Felix behind the bar; there's a few clattering noises in the background, maybe even a power-tool whirring. Who's to say? ]

Since coming to this planet, I've heard a lot about who's registered and who's not, who's an imPort and who isn't. Maybe the rest of you have too. [ He waves a hand as if to dismiss the whole thing. ] Except I don't really see why it matters. As imPorts, we're all not from around here. And whether we're imPorts or natives, we all have to deal with the same bullshit.

So my partner and I—[ Hi; he's the one behind the camera! ]—decided a good way to get past all that bullshit is to have a place where anyone can go and it doesn't matter what world you came from or what you've got tattooed on your hand.

We call it Osiris. It's a restaurant here in Maurtia Falls. Right now, we mostly serve Mexican food—it's just us, we make what we know— [ Locus huffs, the sound is all too clear. We?! What a load. ] with a few other Latino dishes thrown in. But as we grow, so will the menu.

[ It probably won't grow much more. But, anything's possible! ]

Folks looking to drink, don't worry, the bar's stocked. Come in for lunch or dinner. Hell, feel free to inquire about private parties. Anyone's welcome. Think of us like.... Shit, what was that old Earth country that never took a side in wars? Iceland? Norway? Siber—

[ There's another long suffering noise from out of frame. ]...Switzerland.

We're Switzerland! We don't care who you are. We just want you to have a good time. Our grand opening's next weekend, in honor of Dia de los Muertos. We'll be having music and specials on meals and drinks. Stop in. First drink's on the house.

[ There's a brief pause and the image shakes slightly, then tilts. Still from off-screen; ] This is ridiculous and I don't see the point. Either they will come or they won't. There's more information below.

I want a tattoo.
