[It's actually very difficult to place exactly what's going on in the broadcasted video--it's very dark, almost pitch black, but there's enough vague shapes to sort of discern what's happening. The camera appears to be pointed at a pair of very nice--but slightly muddy--shoes, quicky making their way across dimly lit grass. Honestly, it's kind of alarming, especially since it takes the cameraman about thirty seconds to actually start talking.]

I don't like any of this. I don't trust any of this.

[Somehow, his voice strikes the exact midpoint between petulant and paranoid.]

Is this some--I don't know how this works. I was told that this would be visible. Very generally--"visible". I don't know who all is here or what joke you're trying to pull, but I frankly find it annoying. If this is some kind of...I don't know, some kind of prank, you're all going to regret it.

[After another few seconds of voiceless footage, it may become apparent exactly what's strange about the video of the ground: the grass moves away from Saionji's feet like it can sense his footfalls, leaving him only empty dirt to step on. If he notices, he doesn't address it.]

I'm looking for a red car. Convertible. New model. White leather interior. That, or a mall. I sell knives, now. I guess? I guess this is what I do. I sell knives in a mall, but I can't find this mall. Or this car. If you're going to pull a prank, make it a good one.

[When the video begins, what might be the immediate focus of attention for some is Gar's vivid grin skin and hair. It certainly makes him stand out. It's not anywhere near the forefront of his mind though, and he grins widely and waves enthusiastically at the screen.]

Hey there! I'm Beast Boy!! Maybe you recognise my face from TV. [He rubs a hand under his chin and winks in a way that can only be described as cheesy. He's referring to the job he was assigned when he arrived, as a co host.] Anyway, up until a little while ago, I had some pretty killer roommates. They cleaned up everything, and didn't care how late I slept in, and uh, a bunch of other great stuff! But I also never met them.


Anyway, now that they're all gone, the place feels kinda huge. Not that I'm lonely or anything-!! [He shakes his hands rapidly, as if trying to dispel the idea from the air around him, and laughs a little too loudly.] It's just that I'm pretty used to living with a bunch of people, and keeping the TV on all night just isn't the same!

So! Here it is!!

[He holds up an absolute mess of a poster proudly, positioning it so that it takes up all of the camera space.]

Now accepting applications to join the coolest hangout in Heropa! Hit me up, dudes! Or ladies! Or whatever!! [He peeks back around the piece of paper, eyebrows furrowed.] I guess if you have room wherever you're living, that'd be cool too.

[The communicator is set up in such a way that the main viewpoint is pointed at a clean countertop with what looks like... several glasses of milk, except the milk is various shades of blue. Some are more white than blue, and some are more blue than white. Overall, it's a little weird.

It's a little bit weirder, when behind the row of milk, is a seven-foot robot, and then a human woman.

Hello. Because Tanith fails to acknowledge that I have perfect recollection of what milk it supposed to look like, we have to unfortunately ask you people.

[Jyn rolls her eyes, heavily, at Kay's comment, then glares up at him before deadpanning over to the camera again.]

He's malfunctioning, obviously, and doesn't know anything about anything.

I think that the perfect shade of bantha milk is this one.

[She holds up a glass somewhere in the middle of the blue spectrum.]

I drank a lot of it, fermented especially, growing up. I know it's the right color.

You know, I don't think they're going to really know what the proper color is, considering their milk is white, for some reason.

[So everyone- what do you think? The slightly more blue milk, or the slightly less blue milk? Both milks look equally gross unless you're, you know, used to that.]

[When the frame comes into focus it's sitting a pile of candy, then shifts and shuffles around against he fur of his paw before he settles down against a couch behind him. A low leoine rumble is heard, Shadow obviously, before he actually turns the camera to face him.]

Why didn't anyone tell me that candy would hurt your teeth?

[Yeah, the kid looks absolutely miserable right now. It's a mix of eating too much and a bad tooth ache. He opens his mouth to say something, then huffs. Now what? He doesn't know.]

You can't get a cavity over night, right? Does anyone know?

[Earlier this evening, people in Heropa might have noticed some fireworks in all colors of the rainbow going off above house #11. Fun! If kind of seasonally inappropriate! Those police sirens that followed were probably totally unrelated.

But now, there’s just a young voice posting this message to the network. In the background you can just make out other people talking about normal things, like paperwork and donuts and suspected robberies.

Hey. We only get one call so if Grunkle Stan Pines or Agent Washington could come to the Heropa sheriff's office that would be great. Thanks.

[Around 2 AM, a poorly worded text message makes its way onto the network:]

how do u get a kid to put a cucumber in his mouth
wait a minute
this is nut wut it sounds like

[Some letters are written with love or great frustration, but this one in particular was composed by a not-so-anonymous poster who had imbibed copious amounts of alcohol. Have no fear, however- As misleading as this shitty example of a modern "letter" is, Asher means well by it. He's been conspicuously absent from social media as of late, aside from the occasional #gains gym selfie on whatever this world's equivalent of Instagram is.

Anxiety is a bitch, and while his newfound powers could certainly be considered a godsend, his lack of control of them is what worries him most. Will he be the result of another unfortunate tragedy, yet again? Will the results of a mishap be even worse, this time?

He has managed to drink these thoughts away in order to gain more focus of the important things: Namely, how to get two mischievous twins to eat their vegetables.

EDIT: Now with zoo trip log!


Hey, Heropa! It's Maya. Again. This time, not with a TV crew.

[She says that last bit with a little bit of a grin. Sitting in her room at residence 38, she toys with a pendant on a necklace she's wearing; something new and probably from one of the many toku-esque shows she's discovered from Edgeworth's collection.]

So, I heard about this zoo-- Brevard?-- at Cape Canaveral, and they're doing this Boo at the Zoo thing too, and I really wanna go!

But I've never been to the zoo before, and it doesn't really seem like the kind of place you go alone. Plus, they have a group discount.

So, raise your hands if you wanna go to the zoo with me, and let's all pick a day to go! Maybe we can carpool, or something like that.

[All smiles, she gives the camera a little wave.]

Let me know what you think!

[Red is at home so she isn't wearing her duster or hat, but she seems to be wearing a pair of sunglasses. They're pretty cool looking, like they're out of some steampunk convention. Did that negate the "cool" adjective? Well, that's all perspective. Either way, she's wearing sunglasses indoors.

As she makes the following request, she tries not to sound excited but she's still a pretty giddy about having glasses that correct her color blindness, it's pretty sweet. Helps in tracking people down when you're told they have purple hair and are driving a green car, plus, flowers are just dang pretty.]

Howdy. Got a simple request: what're yer favorite colors? Examples included'll be much appreciated.

Bit'a silly request, but reckon I ain't got nothin' better ta do. Ain't got a job no more.

[That's right, no more Roomba inspecting, boohoo.]

An' authorities ain't called me to do some bad guy huntin' fer a couple'a days now. Might as well do somethin' frivolous fer a half hour or so.

[He's been offering it to new imPorts as he sees it but Tadashi thinks maybe he should just make an open offer. It's about the time new imPorts start rolling in so hopefully this can help people right out the gate.]

Hey, so I've offered this to a few new imPorts already but here's an official open offer to everyone. If you need something repaired or need anything made to replace something from home, I can probably try my hand at it.

My name's Tadashi and I work with mechanical engineering and programming with a specialty in robotics, so if it's electronic, I can probably make something work. If not, I can point you to people who can.

[Yeah. That.... will probably be okay! There's also something else he's been wondering about:]

Also, quick question: it's been a few months since I've seen it - [Tadashi, it's been seven months] but if anyone's seen my hat around the imPort cities, if you could let me know? It's kind of one of a kind here so it's not hard to miss, it would really mean a lot to me.


Anyway if you see it or need help with something, you can reach me here or on my comm.

edit: if it's something dangerous or with the intent to harm others, I won't make it.

[Because Hazel happened.]

[It's a nice day in Maurtia Falls, as nice days in Maurtia Falls go. In any case, appearing on the network are one (1) native of G'loot Proktaw (you would designate it Mars) who is holding one (1) cute kitty as he climbs down from a tree.]

Greetings, fellow imPorts. If we have not spoken before, I am Croach the Tracker.

[Obviously, for those who are paying attention to network IDs, but he has learned that introductions are a polite human ritual, and the be impolite would incur onus.]

As many beings arrive at and depart from this iteration of Earth, I would like to alert this network once again that I am available to assist with locating any beings or objects that are lost. My twenty-eight senses make it extremely easy for me to track things, hence my secondary designator. My services would not require payment; you would merely be under a variable amount of onus to me, which you could repay through providing your own services or goods.

[Bartering, basically.]

Please contact me if you would like to have something tracked. I am employed as an Animal Control Officer, but the speed with which I track strayed animals has given me an excess of spare time. [Speaking of which...he lifts the cat into a more direct view, glancing at its collar.] However, I cannot track those about whom I know nothing. If you are the owner of a cat designated "Fluffy," I possess her here.

Well, it's hard to believe it's already been a month since I arrived. I suppose if I'm really going to stay here and fulfill my duties as the superhero this city deserves, then I need to have some semblance of normalcy as well!

Therefore, I require the services of a maid.

-Must be female
-Must be able to cook
-Must enjoy cleaning
-Must have a bubbly personality
-Must be willing to become a model for occasional drawing/writings
-High school students welcome
-Uniform optional

If interested, please report to Maurtia Falls, Residence #002 and ask for Shigure Sohma, or simply contact me.

[Pacifica isn't quite ready for her 'grand entrance' on the network, so to speak, which is why this is just text, mid-morning. Eventually she will make said glorious first impression. She hopes. But she has to be ready first.]

Okay, so. Hi. I'm new to this ridiculousness and I've got some questions.

First, did anybody else's powers not come with any directions? I figured out one of them, but the other two don't make any sense or have like, any hints how to use them. At all. Which is stupid.

I mean, I'm sure I can figure it out eventually but...who know how long that could take.

[Not that she likes asking for help, but she was tired of banging her head against this particular wall.]

Right, and the other thing, do we have to do the job on our papers? 'cause student I'm great at but the other one sounds ridiculous. And like, beneath me. Really beneath me.

New rule. No imPort is allowed to cast magic on basic household necessities.

[It appears to be a recent clip from a political commentator, an older funny looking gentleman with good comedic timing. This clip went up this morning. The feed is cut to Shadow as he appears on screen, birds chirping near by. He is wearing nothing but a red vest and a grey bandanna around his head, but also a silver colored ring around the side of his left ear.

He's in a tree, high above the ground as he makes this delivery. In the woods, it seems as the trees behind him are thick and numerous, and no sounds of people can be heard. He's near Peter Pan's camp, avoiding the onslaught of toilets. However, he has something else to talk about.]

Avast scoundrels! I be lookin' to find me a crew as to impart on a quest of riches! For that, a hearty crew needin' to be recruited! [Somehow he falls into this pirate voice pretty easily, though he doesn't seem quite able to do the gruffness any lower than his usual growl. That part's easy.

His wide toothy grin is a sheer indicator that he realizes how much scenery he's chewing, and he loves it.]

A crew and a sea worthy vessel is what I seek. So what ever lot of you dares to sail the high seas, look no further than joining me motley crew.

[And then the video feed ends, shifting into text because what the hell, Shadow? Suddenly pirate?]

How did you like that performance?
I'm completely serious. I need a pirate ship and a crew. We're going on an adventure because there's a holiday called 'talk like a pirate day' this weekend. Even gonna skip school.

First rule? No adults. Kids only, and under 18 at that.
Second rule? Unless you really need em? No powers.
Third rule? Act the part.

Now I just need to figure out how to get all the stuff. We need a ship, and pirate gear.
That's about it.

[A ping goes out to his friends and acquaintances who are under the age limit. Come play pirate, friends.]

PS Also seeking anyone who can cast magic spells and not screw it up. Please thanks.

There's probably other things I should be asking first, but I only have two questions right now. One: How's the weather in California this time of year?

[If this place really is different, the forecast won't be nuclear fallout. People will be there again. America might be whole again.

Quickly, the camera shifts to a small coffee table with several different newspapers strewn all over it, but with a DVD copy of Terminator 2 on top.]

[The young man on the video feed gives the communicator a casual, easy smile, only interrupted by a ugly scar running down his face. He's leaning on one elbow and looks for all the world as if this whole situation is really funny.]

So, from what I'm getting we're here to save the world from another part of the world and all that. I'm not gonna knock that; it sounds like a good deal.

It's just, you know, the file left out something really important to the whole do-gooder atmosphere: a superhero name. I know. You're probably as shocked as I am. That's everything with franchise rights. There's action figures at stake here. Card games! [Checks something on another screen, quickly.] And ... donuts, apparently.

Not that I've got any great ideas, but I'll take suggestions if you've got em.

Hello again. [ her accent is american, with traces of french if you know what to look for. or have heard her swearing in french, which isn't all that uncommon. pardon my french is literal. ] So I'm back, though I'm not sure if anyone will remember me.

I'm Rosie. Not the Great and Compassionate Asteroid Queen Benezalie. [ her eyes roll like yes i remember that, it was super, but she's back on to introducing herself after a second. ] I've got my old job back so last year's offer still stands: if any school aged person wants a mostly unpaid internship with an electrical engineer, let me know and I can set something up.

Also, if I were looking to get a cat and become a crazy cat lady, where would one find kitties? In any of the Porter cities, I'm not picky. Merci! Thank you.

Christ, I can't believe our stupid shitty lives managed to get more complicated.

[he clears his throat, for whatever. reason.] Alright, listen up. I can barely keep track of idiots that aren't also paranoid spies, so at this point, I... Kind of have no idea how many agents are bouncing around this trash heap. So, here's what we're going to do. If the words Project Freelancer mean anything to you, or Covenant, or MJOLNIR, or anything like that? I want you to chip in.

And when you do, you're gonna tell me about the last thing you remember happening. I don't care what planet it was on, or... Not on.

Oh, and I reserve the right to make these little reports private. The last thing that happened to you might just so happen to be, uh. Sensitive information.

[a long exhale, and an rhythmless tapping.] Phew. Alright. If none of that applies to you, you might still be useful. I need as much information as I can get on discrepancies in... Time? God, this is such bullshit. Look, I just need to know about people from the same reality or whatever, but different points in time. Like, is that the norm? There's got to be some kind of pattern to it.

[ 'Sup MoM. It's your favourite nerdy teenager. She's sitting on the edge of her bed, pieces of drawing paper where they usually are, scattered around her like she's a storm. Mostly she's been passing the time with working on her power. So far she's managed to pull all sorts out of paper - crooked jewellery, imperfect and smudged mugs, hairclips that don't hold her hair very well. She just wishes she could be better, be useful.

That's not why she's on the network today though.

So yesterday was my birthday. [ She says it with a little shrug and a smile, it's not that big of a deal. ] My birthday was also two and a half months ago. So does that make me sixteen still? Or have I just advanced to seventeen? I don't know how any of this works. It's not like time travel exists where I'm from.

[ It's mild curiosity. It's not like seventeen means she can do much more with her life. ]

Oh! Also. What do you think's a good starter pet? I've never had one before. I think I want something fluffy though.
