[‘SUP imPorts, hope you like overly zoomed-in videos!!!! The first thing that’s visible is a headband with an insignia (upside-down) that looks like a stylized leaf, before the camera pans down to an eye, then a nose…

...before he eventually gets the picture enough to back away a little, though the picture remains upside-down. He gives the communicator a mostly blank stare for a few more moments, tilting his head as if uncertain what to do, before he suddenly smiles. It probably looks a little jarring in its abruptness.]

Hello. My name is Sai.

[The comm gets up close and personal with his shoulder for a second as he reaches to pick up a writing pad on the table, on which he has written サイ, because his experiences with the locals have made him assume that autographs are a standard form of greeting around here. He holds it up to the camera for a few seconds before putting it back down.]

This is quite the impressive device. It’s definitely more efficient than messenger hawks. Anyway, I’m certain I am not the only one with questions, so I’ll make this quick: If anyone is familiar with a place called Konoha, I’d like to speak with you.

Additionally...I’ve read that speaking about one’s experiences is a good way to get to know people. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share theirs on the matter of “high school”? It would be helpful to know what to expect when attending.

[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?
question: (phone phone phone)
[personal profile] question
Never have I ever worn a spandex costume.

[ the message just appears on the screen. after a little while, stiles realizes not everyone is going to know how to play "never have I ever" which could make soliciting easy entertainment difficult, so he edits in a couple of rules. ]

If you've done a never have I ever, you've gotta take a drink and explain when. If you haven't, you get to "never have I ever" sharing something you haven't done, and make other people drink and explain. It's fun. I know a bunch of you have trouble with the concept, but it's cool, you don't have to play.

[ then after about twenty minutes he adds a third message. ]

Water. If you're under 21 definitely drink water.

(( i'm going to try and reply to everyone, but i've turned off comment emailing so definitely jump each other, threadjack, make some new friends, tease some old ones.

eta 10/9 pls don't be intimidated by the post size, i still welcome new tag-ins! ))

[The feed opens (upside down) to two figures in mechanical powersuits, one green and one red.]

Naa, Bunny, maybe you should start us o--
crap, it’s already recording??

[There’s the sound of a sigh, the other figure taking the communicator from him and turning it right-side up before handing it back to him.]

Ehehe, I knew that…

Uh, anyway. I’m Wild Tiger.

Hi! I’m Barnaby, and we’d like to take a few minutes to talk about the emergency notification system, something we hope all imPorts can benefit from in the future.

How things are right now, there’s not really any way for us Heroes of knowing when people need our help, aside from the network and patrolling around ourselves. Which works okay with how many of us there are, but I think we’d be able to protect people better if we could get info on where and when there’s trouble, ‘specially if it’s happening some time when we’d be asleep or otherwise busy.

In other words, thanks to a joint-effort between several imPorts and local authorities, we’ve established an easy-to-use system that alerts imPorts whenever there is a crisis or some other emergency that could use their assistance -- provided they’ve signed up to received notifications ahead of time.

This is how it works: )

The other thing we wanted to talk to you guys about is the recent murders of...[He trails off, turning ever-so-slightly toward the nearby table, upon which rests what looks, suspiciously, like an index card.]Matthew Sanderson and Tony Rhoden. They're almost definitely the work of Lunatic. Both victims were found to have been involved in deaths they weren't prosecuted for, and they were both burnt alive, which is 100% his M.O.

We don't have to tell you he's extremely dangerous. For anyone who might be planning to take him on... )

[Barnaby gives a small nod.] Thank you for your time. We appreciate your cooperation.

[NOTE: Please refer to this OOC plotting post for the Emergency Notification System and where to sign up.]

[ When the video pops up, it's obvious that the feed is much too close to the owners face, so have a face full of Momo before he leans back with a big bright smile on his face. It's so bright you could swear there are sparkles surrounding him, but that's all in the imagination. Perhaps that would have been okay... a close up is no big deal, but now he's holding the phone high in the air and what comes next is a loud: ]


At least he seems happy? And he does a little chant to go along with his movements. ]
Sea otter, sea otter!

Look, look? Do you see this? When they said that we would get super powers they weren't lying! [ With a bounce in his voice, he finally sets the phone down and backs up. What you'll see is a normal boy... whose lower half looks like a furry animal, one which you could only assume is a sea otter(?). The fur, clearly soaking wet, is currently dripping all over the floor, but he doesn't care. ] Then does this mean I'm really a... hero?

Then that means we're going to fight bad guys, right? It's something like that, right? And after we're done we can go home, right? That's so cool! [ SO PUMPED. If only his brother could see him now. HE'S SEEN THIS IN CARTOONS, HE'S GOT THIS. ] My name is Momotarou Mikoshiba! The Legendary Sea Otter! Job is taking care of sea otters at the Zoo! Hobby is hunting for stag beetles, fighting for good, and being the best super hero ever!

[ Momo, sit down.

And... anyone in Nonah Residence #002 is free to yell at him for drawing a bath just to jump into it after reading his file btw. ]

Does Nonah have a synagogue?

I didn't go since I got here, but you don't miss Rosh Hashanah.

[secretly he feels really guilty about skipping, even though it was because the thought of finding a new synagogue in a completely unfamiliar place was kind of terrifying so he just...kept...putting it off... story of his life tbh.]

[Someone's been rather asocial since his arrival. He's spent most of the time adjusting to being human and dealing with empathy headaches that have mostly subsided now. It's time to be a little less of a loner, even if it is only digitally.]

So. Names.

I suppose everyone must have one, so we don't all dissolve into chaos and epithets.

My own names have been chosen for me in the past, and I no longer find them suitable. I would like something new. A fresh start. However, I am loathe to admit that I don't know where to start when it comes to choosing oneself a name.

Advice would be appreciated.

[And it doesn't help that he has zero experience with human names, either.]

[ The video clicks on to show a teenage boy sporting a black eye and a letterman jacket with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows and a big letter 'R' on it, as well as a mildly derisive expression on his face. It's a well-crafted guarded look, closing his face off from giving much away about what he might be thinking in the disdainful nonchalance it conveys. ]

So, I think one of my favorite things about this place so far is how I managed to show up just in time to start up school. Again. Some sense of humor someone's got -- but hey, I'm not complaining.

[ There's good reason for why he's not, but that of course he doesn't mention; better to play it like he's too mature for that kind of nonsense. He flourishes with his hand in a theatrical sort of gesture before he goes on, and briefly his tattoo is visible -- although instead of REGISTERED it just reads REG, the rest covered up with an adhesive bandage.

He continues in a tone of mustered confidence, approximating the appropriate smug punch his follow-up really calls for:

I'm Reggie Mantle, and I'm not gonna ask about superpowers or trans-dimensional whatcha-call-it because I figure, real or unreal doesn't matter much if we're livin' it anyway. I got a better survey question from a homework assignment:

What do you hate? With a passion?

[So Siegmund's been here, like, a day, right, and at first it was pretty great because it felt like a "get out of jail free" card on that whole "pick a university or waste your life" decision that was looming over him.]

[And then he realized he was being asked to make a completely different choice with the exact same weight to it on the matter of "swearing allegiance" to a foreign government's military against a trumped up threat, and, uhhh hello there deeply uncomfortable parallels to his national history]

What happens when someone doesn't enlist? Or when they do?

A real answer. I think if I ask the people who
[bring? brang? bringed? fuck, he has to look that one up] brought [fuck you, English] me here, they give a fake one.
