[ alex doesn't spend a lot of time showing her face on the network, in part because she's kind of private, and in part because text is just easier? also it's easy to just look over magnus's shoulder, but anyway..

her hair's pinned up into a messy green bun atop her head, and she's wearing bright pink chanel sunglasses, which are probably familiar to some (like reggie). she stares from behind them for a few moments, but then pushes them up atop her head. for those that have never met her in person, she has surprisingly striking heterochromia, one of her eyes a bright, startling gold.

she is also.. at a campsite?? if the tent in the background is any indication, anyway. ]

Hey, so, just getting an idea here, but how many people out there like doing.. outdoors-y stuff? I mean hiking, canoeing, biking, camping, that kind of thing? Or if you don't do it, would you be into it with a guide that knows what the fuck they're doing?

[ she glances up over the top of the phone, picking a grape up out of a bowl at her side and tossing it over at magnus, lifting her brows like you following where i'm going with this?

she glances back down at the phone again, then, pulling her knees up in the chair. ]
While I'm asking apparently random things, Halloween's coming up, and aside from certain people who'll remain nameless eating disgusting amounts of colored wax, who's got plans to do what? A bonfire could be fun. Doing some haunted hayrides and houses, that kind of thing. [ alex isn't normally a group activity type of person, but valhalla's softened her up some, and it could be fun. ]

( potential spoilers for season one of American Gods, if you'd like me to avoid any spoilers please just lmk in the subject line. )

What do you believe in? Really believe? What do you devote your time to?

( A pause; he's having a sip of cocoa. )

Now I've been here a few weeks, I've gotten to wondering about that. There's a lot here that's the same as back home, with a few obvious differences thrown in. Advertising, TV, that kind of thing. Back where I come from, what you spend your time on and what consumes your thoughts matters. There's a lot of shit you might not realise how much it matters to you. Mattering matters, if you want to make it sound like some bullshit affirmation.

So here's the thing: what if the reason we come through those porters with the powers we got is because people believe we will? What if we only start fighting crime or committing them because people believe we will?

( A long exhale, almost a verbal shrug. ) Or maybe it's bullshit. I dunno.

[This video is primarily a response to the slander that just occurred in response to one man expressing a love for a blessed holiday treat. This injustice will not go uncorrected if Peter has anything to say about that. Or well, at least it won't go without a petty filmed response - one filmed in the X-Haus livingroom guru unboxing style.

Peter sets the camera up, stepping back to silently gesture at a large cardboard box he's set down on the coffee table. Using a utility knife he cuts open the tape, parting the flaps and revealing the contents within. Like a sea of orange, white and yellow gold - he holds up a handful and lets the delicate kernels slip through his fingertips with a solid and surveying look and a nod of appreciation.

He then sits down on the couch, pulls both the table and box toward him, and with his eyes dead-set into the camera lens proceeds to eat a handful of candy corn. Thus begins the most Halloween themed mukbang this network has ever or will ever again likely see. He keeps eating. There's no end in sight. And he's going to live stream every last second in beautiful, crisp technicolor.

You can't stop this, nonbelievers. You can't do a single thing to stop this.]

Don't you just freaking love getting in the Halloween spirit? I know I do.

[So Peter's coming at you vlog style, sitting on a bench with his earbuds in before he pulls them out and loops the cord around his neck to have them stay put. He's adapted pretty well to the whole new age technology thing bit by bit, but talking into a phone camera is mega weird. Sorry for weird angles, he's working this shit out.]

Yo, so last month you guys were real cool about the whole ordering pizza thing - thanks for that. Pie In The Sky got shut down for a while after the place got trashed, and they decided to rebrand while they were doing their repairs. [He holds up a paper flyer. He's been handing these out all day, jamming them in mailboxes, mail slots and even inside people's vehicles and any open windows. You're free to find them just about anywhere, in potentially great volume. Sorry not sorry.] So Porter Pizza'll be reopening on the 9th.

There'll be free slices, some great deals and you can help 'em get back on their feet after all that shit that went down. The joint's run by some cool people and I'm still doing deliveries, so I can guarantee you'll get a hot pizza every time. If you don't believe me, give it a shot and I'll show you up.

[He doesn't really have much else to announce but he doesn't feel like dishing out any more flyers so he gets comfortable on the bench. He furrows his brow and hell, why not:] I'm gonna start a war and I don't even care: Pineapple on pizza, yay or nay?

[Lorna is sitting in a bakery. There's evidence of a recently consumed danish on the plate on the table between her and the phone's camera. Maybe that's why she looks so pleased. Or maybe it's because she's alive and sometimes that's a rush all its own.]

I thought I'd introduce myself, since I just got here and it seems like the thing to do. I'm Lorna Dane. It's pretty nice to be somewhere sunny. Or anywhere at all.

Anyway, I'm still a little fuzzy about things here. I don't know that I'll get over being accepted by the population at large anytime soon. That's definitely not how it is back home. I wonder what else is different that people don't know to tell me about.

On the one hand, I want to know if there are people from home here so I can either catch them up on the gossip or be caught up myself. On the other hand, I think this might be a really good time to make a break with my old life and try something new for a change.

I'm a publicist now, which is going to take some adjustment. Still, it's nice to have a civilian job again.

I don't really have a point to make, I guess. Just that I look forward to getting to know people and hopefully things will be less ridiculous than home here.

[ The audio function on this is remarkably similar to her show, with just a more limited audience. But this is Trish's element. This is where she shines. ]

Those of you who didn't have powers before coming here -- is it something that you dreamed of back home? Did... [ She pauses to find the right word. ] ..."gifted" people exist where you're from? I always tried to convince my best friend that she should put on a costume and save others. I guess I was trying to live vicariously through her that way.

There's something that happened. We call it "The Incident" because, well... "The Day Aliens Poured Out of the Sky" is a bit of a mouthful. A good portion of New York was destroyed and a lot of lives were lost, but it could have been worse. Unimaginably worse. But there were people who stepped in. Stepped up.

Do you think those who have the power should use it for the betterment of society? Share your thoughts.
