Hey, imports. [ Mitchell waves at the camera, a duck of his head, and the smile shows that he's pretty pleased as punch, and for good reason. ]

I'm sure those of you in Virginia have already heard, given that elections were about a week ago, but my opponent conceded yesterday, so... I can finally share the good news.

But with that kind of good news comes work, and... well, I'm always the kind of person who's ready to put it in, but...what I'm really looking for, is an idea for who else is. Going to DC requires a lot of things, and thankfully, I've got some experience in building a staff -- even if it's not senatorial. I have a chief of staff, but... there's a lot more spaces to fill, and I don't want this to be just the best in the business, I want it to be imports, first and foremost. So I guess... this is something of a call to arms. You don't have to leave where you're living, but you'd have to work in DC, and...that's not exactly the place for the faint of heart, you know? I won't say it's a glamorous job, and you'll probably hear a lot of shit you wish you hadn't heard, but... but it's good work.

And don't let age dissuade you. If you're younger, and you still want to work with us, I'm setting up an internship program for young imports to sign on with us too. I feel like we have some of the most mature kids in the country, and I want everyone else to see it too.

[ But. ]

Anyway. I want to thank everyone who helped out, or supported us so far, but that was just the preliminary work, when we hit it in January, we're going to really get started.

[ A pause. ] And, you know, I say this a lot, but... my door's always open. If you want to tell me there's something you want to see done... or maybe just want to see me get my hands into something, just... let me know. I'll do what I can.

[ A pause. ] And I expect you all to hold me accountable, too. If shit goes down, or if we do something you don't like, or I'm...not able to stop something. I still want to hear your opinions. Anytime, anywhere.

Once, Thanksgiving was celebrated by proclamation. This nation was called to give thanks, to celebrate.

It transformed into tradition. Then an annual holiday. Now it is commonplace.

[ He pauses, purposefully. His voice is soft and calm. ]

We've been taken from our worlds. Our homes. Our times. I have been here for ten months, two weeks and four days. Some of you have been here for years. Others, much less.

In that time, is there anything in this world you are thankful for? People. Places. Things. Or perhaps thankful to be here. Or maybe you're not thankful at all. Maybe everything you're thankful for has been ripped away from you.

Regardless. Today is a day to give thanks. So tell me. What are you thankful for?

[ Part of her wants to wait before doing this. They waited before assuming Cisco was gone for good. But it had been Barry that kept her calm and rational during that. And, well... ]

For those of you who knew him, Barry Allen has gone home. I know I should probably do this more privately, but that would be a lot of messages and I'm sure I'd miss someone.

[ Hunter's gone, too, but announcing that would likely lead to a lot of "good riddance" sentiment, which would just make her feel even worse. ]

[The video opens with not only one Reyes, but two, in the kitchen of Heropa 16. Both Bianca and Jaime are visible, and it's initially coming from Bianca's communicator.

Bianca begins to speak first. She at least looks more rested than the last time she had made a post to the network.]

Hi, everyone. I'm Bianca Reyes, and this is my son, Jaime. [In the background, Jaime waves dutifully at the camera, though he remains silent. Hi, imPorts!]

Thanksgiving is coming up, and we know not everyone is lucky enough to have family or friends from back home here.

[Something that certainly hit home for Bianca, last month when Alberto disappeared. She looks over at her son.

Now it's Jaime's turn to pipe up, though he's certainly not as skilled a public speaker as his mother is. He doesn't even bother stepping forward.]

So, I know not everyone knows what Thanksgiving is. It's got a long history with, um, pilgrims, and how America was founded, but that isn't really what it's about anymore. Mostly, it's about spending time with people you love, talking about what you're thankful for, and most importantly, eating a lot of food. A lot of food. [He has to grin at that.

Bianca turns a bit to glance at Jaime, with a smile, before returning her attention back to the camera.]

Because of that, we want to invite anyone who doesn't have anyone here or has never celebrated Thanksgiving before to come and celebrate it with us. We might all be stuck here for the holidays, but we don't have to be alone for them.

[Jaime glances over at Bianca a little uneasily because this is a big get-together she's talking about - come on, supervillains, give this one a rest - but instead of voicing those concerns, leaves everyone with a parting request:] Oh, and, uh, since we don't know how big this will get… please bring something if you're coming! We can potluck it up. How big is this grocery list going to get?

[Bianca looks back over, knowingly. They'll have this under control!] It might take a few trips, it'll be fine. [That's not fine at all!]

We'll make sure there's enough space for everyone. If nothing else, the weather will be nice here.

I'm a thief. I'm a crook.

[As Len talks he counts the points off on his fingers, one by one.]

I'm a liar. I'm a criminal. I'm a bad person.

[Five fingers and he holds his hand up for another second before pulling his fingers back in until he's holding up a fist. The glare on his face is promising a punch.

Lowering his hand, he puts it down on the bed he's sitting on and leans forward.]

But whatever they're saying I've done to get me in here? Wasn't me.

[To illustrate what 'in here' means, he turns the device, showing what is very clearly a jail cell. Then the camera is back on his face, which hasn't gotten any happier.]

Sorry for any appointments I might be missing because of this. Also, I could use a lawyer.

[He moves the device a bit closer, blue eyes narrowed. For someone so cold, that's a lot of hot anger.]

To the coward who framed me? I'll be coming for you.

[ooc: This is a result of Jonathan Crane impersonating Leonard and robbing Bruce Wayne. Leonard doesn't know that Crane did that yet. He just knows it wasn't him.]

[Greetings, MoM. Fresh meat here. Here is one (1) Terry McGinnis, dressed in his usual black t-shirt and brown jacket with the large grey stripes on the arms. He seems... panicked.]

Look, I have lots of questions and things to say about being kidnapped and brought to some kind of parallel universe or something, and I'll get to all of them in a moment, but more important right now--

[Terry quickly pans the camera to the other side of the room, where a large, black Great Dane has backed himself into a corner...on the ceiling. The dog seems uncertain about his unusual situation, but isn't distressed.]

How do I get my boss' dog off the ceiling?!

[Before Mick starts the video, he links a few photographs of a very cute schipperke. Then he clicks on the video. He's in his house, wearing a black turtleneck and has a very different dog happily on his lap.]

Has anyone seen this dog? I call him Charcoal. He hangs around Heropa and likes playing with Matches here. [He scratches the dalmatian's ears. At least he's consistent about the theme naming?]

I thought he was a stray but he seems well-fed, clean and doesn’t look like he's got other problems a stray would've. But he's got no collar or ID or nothing. If he does have an owner, they sure do let him run around on his own a lot.

If anyone has any info, lemme know. Don’t want to accidentally steal somebody’s dog.

[He smiles before snapping his fingers, just remembering something.]

Oh! Should ask while I'm here -- any movies out right now you'd recommend?

[Someone looks and sounds fed up for once. It's rare enough that Hunter feels grumpy to let it crack through his facade that often.

He's at least smart enough to make sure he records his video from the main Heropa coffee shop and not his actual lodgings. Tsk tsk, heroes. Stalking is bad.]

So much going on it feels like every time we get five minutes something else blows up. Maybe I should just not sit down and get involved in things. Apparently everyone seems content enough to just sit there and let these things happen to them. Oh they'll shout and say they played the hero, saved that person from being hit by falling rubble and all, but no-one seems keen on being proactive on it. Just sitting, day to day, wondering when the next building collapses.

And that's what happens when I open this thing up before my first coffee of the day. [Gives a beaming, natural smile before taking a sip of coffee.] I've been busy, about to get busier, and work is about to get busier too. So if you want a 10% discount at the Soleful Sneaker store and I'm not there, tell them Hunter Zolomon sent you.

[Okay so this tech? Rad as all hell. He has no idea how it works, how it's so slim lined and tiny, where the batteries go or why he even has it but it's so bitching, he's not even gonna protest it. His now. No backsies. Ever.

He doesn't quite get what's happening and he doesn't quite care so mostly, he's just looking to reach out. Communicate. Make friends. Maybe even a love connection cause, you know, yolo. Stranger things have happened. The video is on him and yes, he's rocking an awful outfit of blue and yellow and yes, he doesn't pull it off at all. Does he care? Naaaah. He grins an obnoxious grin that will kind of make you want to punch his little gremlin face in.

He decides to go with a time tested and flawless way to both express his interest in all these glorious people, all at once, and convey the right depth and emotions required for a first intro.]


[Nailed it, yo.]

This place is so dope! This is the Trickster comin' atcha and I am delighted to be here. How are you beautiful people?
