[ Skeets has figured out how to connect to the Network with his mind using his nannite tattoo, which is really quite useful for him especially. So while this is video, everything is from Skeet’s perspective. And currently his perspective isn’t very good. To say he's in a "messy apartment" would be an understatement.

Clothes are definitely not where they're supposed to be, there are several empty pizza boxes and other signs of food scattered around. Plates with bread crusts, seemingly unwashed for a while, with paper plates for when one is too lazy to just wash off a real plate. Envelopes and papers are just hodgepodge everywhere.

While he speaks, he’s tidying. With his little robot hands he picks up these things and puts them back where they came from, to the best of his ability to guess where something might have possibly come from. He removes garbage, puts said dishes in the sink, and sorts through papers.

This is a public service announcement. If this is what your room, house or apartment looks like, it is a disaster of untold proportions and you should clean it.

[As always, Yukyun's coming onto the network to kill least this time there's a bit more of an actual purpose.]

[Unecessarily cracks knuckles. It's time to get down to business (except not really).]

Bottom line? It's gift-giving season, and I'm bad at gift ideas. And lots of other people're thinking of things they want around this time of year...sooo, tell me your wish lists. It'll help get the idea juices flowing.

[At least that way he doesn't have to sit around brainstorming on his own.]

You know...I was wondering too. How many people still bother with surprise gift giving? Seems easier all around if you just ask someone what they want and then get them that. Everyone wins.

[ The following content is blocked from A CERTAIN NERD ]

So. It's winter, which means it's the holiday season where you circulate those online shopping "buy me these things" lists, spend too long in retail shopping lines--and realize you honestly don't know what to buy people who you know REALLY well.

I don't say this often, and you probably won't hear it again, but HALP PLS.

Shopping for: Male. Mid-Thirties. NERD. Likes space and math and robots. Dresses like an academic dork (stuffy librarian). Significant enough other that a spending limit does not exist by default. Nor is a gift objectionable due to being "too personal" or "too significant." Does not need a new watch, nor a new winter jacket. Rarely wears ties. Does not wear jewelry.

Alright, and just because: What's the BEST gift you've received?

[Someone maybe hasn't slept in like four days--not since he fell asleep on a couch in another life--and has been trying to distract himself with work and specs and new plans, but it hasn't been nearly as effective as he would have liked it to be. And he doesn't have his confidante around to talk to or ask advice. So what is a boy dealing with a crisis to do?

This is probably not the best idea, but it's the only one sticking in his sleep-deprived mind. Getting a certain text definitely didn't help.]

Reality warping is the worst. Like your whole world is a hard drive that they just write over however they want. Only maybe it wasnt so bad. Maybe it was pretty nice. Except its fake. Fake memories. Fake feelings. Fake future. Worst.

How do you get rid of something like that? How do you go back to not feeling things? Big things. Wheres the reset button for big fake feely things?

[Try as she might, Sookie can't figure out how to do this anonymously, so at the very least she won't show her face. It's too damn embarrassing.]

does anyone have good tips on faking powers? i need to know in the next few days.

[ The video opens on a close up of Julian's face. He's wearing a hungry sort of smile, more sinister than sweet. ]

Tonight is the night
When pumpkins stare
Through sheaves and leaves
When ghoul and ghost
And goblin host
Dance round their king.
It's Halloween.

[ There's an odd lack of rhyme in the last two lines -- he changed a single word of the poem. A little clue as to what he's about to do.

He pulls the camera away from his face, revealing that he's at - of all places, Disney World, Alabama. Behind him in the distance is Cinderella's Castle. Everything still looks normal.

Today is the last day of October. All Hallow's Eve. Hallowe'en. I've been looking forward to tonight.

I do hope you plan on celebrating, network.

[ He smiles again, wider, lips pressed together. ]

I know I am.

( ooc: this is a pretty ridiculous post, but just chucking this behind a cut in case! Sarissa's kind of flippant and terrible sometimes, so I'm also gently linking an opt out post if there's any topics you'd sooner not come up, or would just prefer to opt out of cr with her generally :]b

content warning: discussion of cults, reference to serial killers, and potentially murder/group suicide/any else terrible that could tie into cults that could come up in the comments. I'll update as necessary. )

a survey regarding what would make joining a cult appealing. )

[Superman looks honestly just....

Tired. He reaches to rub the bridge of his nose before he speaks, wondering how to even put it into words. Oh, he knows what he wants to say, knows what he wants to do. But it would be unfair to out someone without giving them a chance to work things out in this place, to become a better person.

Except, last time he tried that it ended up with him kidnapped in Crane’s basement.]

If someone from your world appeared here, someone who you knew was capable of really awful things… would you warn people?

Or would you give them a chance to be different in this place?

[Richie is excited but nervous, unsure what to expect from this new world and all of the people in it. But mostly excited. He’s never gotten to dimension hop before! And people say that Virgil gets all the fun. Not that it doesn't completely suck that all of his tech is back home. Couldn't they have brought him when he was in costume? Of course not that would be too easy.

So he’s putting his best foot forward and trying to look as cheery as possible—while also trying to get as much data from the network as he can.]

Yo, man, this place is off the chain, but I’m pretty sure my mom is against me traveling out of town on my own, let alone to an alternate universe. I hope I get a note to take home that says “We apologize for taking your son on an interdimensional field trip without prior permission. Next time make sure to pack a lunch.” [He holds out his hand a bit like he’s reading something on it but then turns his eyes back to the screen.]

I’m sure the Justice League would have been all over this. Saving universes is their thing. Me? I have a math final to study for. But I’m here, so who else is a world-hopping newbie? I can’t be the only one around.
