[Unlike the unbridled mass of newcomers to emerge today upon the network with cheerful smiles and long-winded introductions, today's audience gets a glimpse of this latest "superhero" who looks like something the cat dragged in. He's completely drenched in water or booze, his face is utterly filthy and there's sand all over him. Hell, there's even a piece of seaweed hanging off the side of his hat.

Nevertheless, this drunken fool actually looks like he just walked off the set of a "pirate" movie or something. He certainly has that odd 17th century mystique about him judging from his attire. When was the last time anyone seen a tricorne hat before? This guy even has gold teeth and dreadlocks by the way. Weird, no?

He looks like an complete mess but the kohl around his eyes is miraculously dry and looks utterly flawless. How? Voodoo, probably.

Methinks I've had too much--(*blech*)--to drink.

[Yeah, judging from the bloodshot eyes and the half empty bottle in his left hand, Sparrow is drunk.]

What in the bleedin' hell is this? Where's mah ship?! Where's the Pearl?!

[A certain SOMEONE wasn't paying attention earlier, clearly. He already had someone tell him what's going on before but now he's coming out of his drunken stupor. Expect yelling and screaming to commence in three, two, one--]

WHERE'S MAAAHHHH SHHHHIIIPPPPPP?!

[ Taura looks noticeably comfortable on camera, used to the idea of vid messages, despite being an eight foot tall muscular woman with an outslung jaw, protruding fangs, and piercing tawny-gold eyes to match the light dusting of fur across her pale skin, visible at the right angle. She speaks around her teeth deftly, her eyes bright with eager interest. ]

Hey. I'm new here, and I was wondering if anyone was looking to hire some muscle. I'm not too proud for menial labor, although I am a trained mercenary. [ Her military uniform is a plain gray, but does have sergeant's tabs visible. ] I'm not sure when I'll be called on-duty yet, but I don't need a lot of sleep, so I can fit in whatever odd jobs you need me to do.

I also accept payment in food. [ She starts to grin wolfishly, and then hurriedly suppresses it, worried that her fangs will put people off even here where she's far from the oddest thing around. Taura hasn't mentally adjusted to that yet.

Clearing her throat, she goes on: ]
My file said I'm stronger now, and I haven't broken a glass just from holding it since I was a kid, so I guess I must be. Is there anyone else around here like that? Or at least who's really tough to hurt? I need to adjust to my new level of strength so I don't hurt anyone. [ Taura's quite matter of fact about it, as if this is a business task. ]

--Oh, yeah. My name's Taura. Nice to meet you! If you just want to go around town, too, I'd love to meet people! [ Her excitement is palpable, and hard to contain. Being here is a fun new experience for her, not dreadful. ]

We're going to pretend that last post I made didn't happen. Ready? One, two, three, Riptidedidn'tfragupandoffendeveryone! There. Done.

[AHEM.]

Anyway, me and Tailgate - not Vos, Vos can go diving in the Sea of Rust - have really been trying quite hard to human right, but we don't seem to be getting it. So I'm doing something unprecedented...

How? How do humans... human?

[asking for help. amazing.]

[...oh.]

I just found out one of the DJD is here-- Vos. Tailgate, you around? I think we gotta find out a way to cut and run.

[riptide knows, deep down, he should save the humans in a situation like this. like autobots are supposed to, like skids said to megatron, but he's too scared to even consider staying and fighting the djd. that would be suicide. he's being a coward, and he hates it.]

Everyone else! It was nice knowing you. Sorry about your planet. Maybe try to focus on space flight before the rest of the DJD show up and kill you all?

Hello? Is this meant to be spoken into? There is no circular apparatus by which to dial a number—

Ah. The light says "recording." Good. I have a question: which of these cities is most in need of help? Eventually I'll see to all, but those most in need should be helped first. I've heard gossip on the street while strolling of riots, blackouts and a shortage of food. Is that everywhere, or simply in the place called De Chima?

( Diana repeats this messages in a dozen different languages, just in case. There's a long pause afterward, and then she says quietly: )

Peace seems to elude this world. I must wonder if he survived.

[Today's video cuts in on this video playing on a loop. Inanna's voice speaks over the video after the first full loop.]

Amazing, isn't it? You always see those pictures from space of super novas and red giants and white dwarfs, but it's something else to see a super nova being born like that. The star it came from must have been truly astounding. Only the grandest have any hope of becoming super novas, you know.

Do you think it worried about becoming a black hole? That's always the risk when you're so great. You either end with a tragic collapse, dragging down so many things around you, or you burst into something so bright and amazing and wonderful that you drown out the splendor of everything around with your brilliance.

Or maybe...you just aren't grand enough to become either of those. Maybe you just fade away into nothing, forgotten in favor of the light of stars bigger and brighter than you.

What fate would you pick for yourself if you had to choose? A collapse, an explosion, or a quiet fade out?

[The mask that appears on screen is reminiscent of the cyborg Grievous - to those that have seen him before - however there is something more grounded and ancient about it, more obviously made of bone rather than a metallic rendition of such. The voice that speaks is also more earthy, without the electronic enhancements or filters, but still perhaps can be recognised. There's something calmer and more dignified in his speech.]

I have openings available for those who wish to train in the art of combat. Whether you need to learn how to use a new weapon or merely to brush up on the skills you already posses, I can be contacted for private sessions or even small groups, if there are some of you who work together.

I have had decades of experience in the field of battle with various weaponry. You may bring your own or these can be provided for you.

For those who do not know me, I am known as General Grievous. Classes will be customised to suit the individual's needs and will be available for both those who are registered and unregistered, on a case by case basis.

Any questions can be asked here, as well as making any appointments.

[ The video feed is just some extremely high definition footage of a bouquet of flowers blooming and then dying in what surely must be time-lapse. But no here come all the cute bugs at regular speed to munch on the plants. This is all set on black velvet and surrounded by what seems to be pieces of some small predator's skeleton cast in silver. ]

So everyone wants to know if your world has magic or space travel or- I dunno, pop-punk?

Here's the real question, is anyone from a world where there are doctors who don't constantly sound like they're trying to talk you into crawling up their ass to live with them in there?

( When her image appears, she may immediately be recognizable to some. She is young, with healthy colour in her cheeks and a brightness in her eyes where not long ago there had been neither. )

Where I come from, there was an entire epoch in history where great heroes walked the land. One of my forebears, Durran Godsgrief took to wife the daughter of two deities of wind and sea. They rained down such a tempest upon the wedding party that Durran's family and guests all died.

One after the next, he built successfully larger castles to weather their grief. Until finally the seventh, built with the aid of either the Children of the Forest or Bran the Builder finally survived and withstood the gods' rage. He was known as Godsgrief ever after, for having caused them such a bother.

( She is wise enough now not to speak of Lann the Clever instead, as she assumes her secret must ever remain precisely that. Her green eyes hold the camera, as she tilts her head, effecting a thoughtful façade. )

The word 'hero' carries a different sort of weight here than what I am familiar with. Is it simply this world, or others? ( She wonders if hers is merely an anomaly. ) Is the definition of heroism someone with godlike powers in the songs and stories of your realm, or are some ordinary people who manage to accomplish great things?

( Myrcella is, for now, putting on the impression of wide-eyed curiosity to stem her panic at having not only been resurrected, but with the ability to maim others if this file is correct. Her features soften apurpose, and she gives a sweet smile to her audience. )

Thank you.

Religion.

[Crane's calm, polite voice says inquisitively.]

For those who believe in providence; does this world's existence solve any of your big questions? For those who repudiate the irrational, do your answers to life's mysteries remain written in stone?

[He musters all of his carefully-rehearsed self-control to question a topic he isn't fond of.]

My fundamental question is does this world affirm the existence of the divine? I must say; if you take the positive view because you are a member of a pantheon, then that's a strange way of attesting your strength. Divinity is given power by its worship, do you realize? What's divine here other than your celebrity? Well, leaving aside for a moment the Porter. Lucifer is no more powerful than anybody. Inanna is no more powerful than anybody. Persephone is no more powerful than anybody. And, funnily enough, Woden is certainly no more powerful than anybody.

Emerson said, "Every man is a divinity in disguise, a god playing the fool." I think that makes the question of how a God feels about playing the part of the Fool quite relevant.

That's all I've got to say. I'm going to slip off to work. Thank you for listening.

they talk a lot about right and wrong. what stops you from hurting someone, what eats you up from the inside out if you do.

so what if your skin doesn't crawl when you hear someone scream in pain?

what if you feel no pain when you see someone's legs break right at the bone

what if they didn't remind you of anybody you cared about? what if the blood or whatever didn't make you think about going to hell or puking up your pancakes or crying or anything

what if you knew how not to get caught

what if it was fun

what would stop you from fucking people up


edit for ooc: Kavinsky is writing from inside a psychiatric ward and being monitored to an extent. I will be assuming that any communications marked 'private' need to be too garbled or distorted for surveillance to pick up, but everything else is fair game!

[The video screen opens to the Church of the Morningstar, a large, pristine building of white concrete and hard, sharp, modern edges. It's owner, both of the phone in possession and the church in name, stands in front of it wearing a long black overcoat with the collar pulled up on this unseasonably cold day.]

You have no idea how disappointing it is to finally come outside the prison of creation and be surrounded by the ensnarement of worship. And not of anything, but of me most importantly-- something that, I must profess, becomes more tiring by the day. You've all chosen to squander your chance to live by your desires only to build a prison of rules and governing around yourselves. Even here, having left those devices, you've so eagerly baited yourselves again. Let's change that, shall we?

[He waves his hand, and the church in front of him warps and collapses in on itself, a twisting of light that causes its viewers to blink only to be met with an entirely new creation-- a piano bar which reveals itself to intimate prohibition-style decor within. A sexily backlit 1923 Steinway piano ties together a room dotted with small tables perfect for a night of Jazz music and drinks. Lucifer takes a seat and crosses one leg over the other, different looking perhaps than those of the same name imPorts have been familiar with in the past. In fact, he bears a striking resemblance the Thin White Duke.... or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that the Thin White Duke resembled him.]

'Lux'... a name I once chose impertinently to create something of my own in the entrapment of His will, seems a little unsuitable now that I've liberated myself of those titles. A new name, I think, would be more appropriate. Perhaps 'Revīvēscere'.

[The man's voice (deeper, calmer) trails off. There's a long pause, then a raspy chuckle.]

Alrighty. In order'a business...

First, a multiple choice quiz: A, New York City. B, The City. C, The Hive. You only get to pick one, so choose wisely.

Second... hey, brat. Master Blaster? --Aurora Princess. Simba. Any'a you here? [Pause, then tentatively,] You... Alphabet soup gang? Yeah, right. How about you, Cats? Boom-Boom? Spidey-Mama?

[It could be worse, all things considered. A fresh slate meant he could keep his identity under wraps longer. And that, he'd long learned, was invaluable enough.]

[Besides, the government already had his number. Figuratively, if not literally. There's a long pause as he considers all this, then thoughtfully mumbles,] Aaah, it's not worth hiding, is it.
Iron Bot was a goner. I know that. But the chessmaster in the Porter- what'd you guys figure out about her?

Well, as for anyone else... If "Shinigami" rings a bell? Long time no chat.

Alternate Universes.

Alright, I've heard weirder. [ The filtered, mechanical voice comes from the reflective helmet -- which really just reflects the camera of his comm back for the world to see. Exciting! ]

So the important questions are as follows:
Number one. Radio Shack, or some equivalent. Or am I supposed to dig through scrapyards? It looks like most of them are out of business, so I'm looking for a supplier.
Number two. Who likes to sing, and wants a good deal on being the best damn singer out there? Let's talk.
Number three. Tell me about each of these cities. I can read reviews, but I want to know what you think about them. For...research.
Number four. What's the fandom scene like? Anyone else here involved, or is it just the normal people.

If any of you have met Persephone, or Inanna, I'm a friend of theirs. [ Woden, they hate you. ] So treat me well, alright?

[ A pause, and he looks down, supposedly at what is probably another phone. This is absolutely on purpose. ] Oh. I guess it would be a Wednesday, wouldn't it?

[ Today, the Church of the Morningstar is looking a little different. It, and the grounds, have been decorated with thousands and thousands of pure white Easter Lilies. Some are planted, coming out of the ground, others draped in garlands and in wreathes. How did they do it? A miracle? Porter powers? An serious business event coordinator and an absurd number of day laborers? It is a mystery. There is also now a large banner reading: ]

They're actually making texting kind of hard, but it's better than video or audio right now. He's not letting this freak show go on display in front of the entire network.
