Uh, hey everyone.

[Someone sounds sort of sheepish, mostly to hide the distress that comes from being on the receiving end of being revived.]

I wish I could say that I'd died doing something really worthwhile to help out, but I didn't, it was an anomaly. But I'm-- I'm okay now, I can't even figure out what I've lost. I've tried thinking through all my life but none of my memories seem to be gone, and I've still got all my senses, and I still look like me. I'm kind of scared that there isn't a cost, that would mean they're getting more powerful. Maybe they even have a bigger stone? Maybe they've sacrificed more people?!

[There's a brief pause, and then a more subdued voice continues.]

Okay, so-- maybe I figured it out after all, please forget what I said then. I didn't mean to talk about it so publicly where anyone could hear, especially not when the Admin really might be using philosopher's stones to resurrect people!

[Damn it! Again!]

I mean... I don't think I can lie, and it's like I'm just speaking without getting to think about it first, which is really awkward! What if I end up having a conversation with someone and I don't want to say something to them, and it comes out anyway? What if I tell Steph that I think she's really pretty? OH! Oh no...

We mourn the loss of those who have died in the time between the last announcement and this one:

Hugo Vasquez
[The second part of the message is OPEN. The second part is SEMI-CLOSED to anyone with access to the Shadownet - a text only app created by Winter. Winter is an NPC that you'll read about in the Survival Guide, but the basic primer is that she's a Russian AI who has been periodically contacting the Snowblind characters and trying to help them to some extent. She has been encountered in multiple events and aided characters in making private messages actually private.

Please see this post about Shadownet distribution. You can contact Ecks' ([plurk.com profile] yawningdodo) mun about figuring out how to get your character a copy, if you're interested. These are also characters who currently possess Shadownet. Anyone traveling with these characters will likely be able to read messages on Shadownet through their travel companions.]

Shadownet Access Only
Winter, it's John again. I know we haven't heard from you in a while, and I wanted to send along a little more information now we've got it. Bullet points again. I hope the others can fill in the finer details for you.

Additional Information )

Open to Everyone
Hullo, everyone. Dr. Watson here again with a summary update of recent happenings. You can find them attached. Hope that can help everyone. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and I'll do my best to answer or direct you to the people who can.

[The bullets in the open post are about the same as those in the Shadownet post. They just don't reference Winter or direct questions to her.]

[ Video ]

So, for those of you wondering, the power plant is up and working again and it's had one very obvious effect:

[ She turns the camera so it's pointed down past the skywalk, catching just the edge of the walkway and the ground below. ]

Fricken electronic walkways across the skyscrapers. Which is completely awesome.

[ She's not as excited about it as she really should be, but she's been pretty damn depressed. ]

Anyway, updates will be on House's map. If we find a new path we'll let you all know.

[ She glances off to the side, then back again. ]

Oh yeah, and Beckett wants me to remind everyone he's still doing the candid camera thing, so if anyone wants to watch his magical adventure unfold, that's an option.

[the network has been way too serious lately, so it looks like it's time for harley to bring a little bit of humor and chaos to everybody's lives! that, and she's got to found out exactly who here is single. you know, for science!

for once, harley seems to be set up in a place with other people. it has a definite effect on her; she's practically bouncing with excitement. her cheeks are pink, only visible because the makeup has been rubbed off; she isn't wearing her domino mask, or her cap, either. her pigtails bounce as she does, and she pipes up, voice squeaky as always.]

Heya, denizens of Snow Hell, population us! Everyone is still so gloomy!! I think I've figured out just the perfect thing ta brighten the place up! Thanks to some anonymous inspiration, I've deduced that what this place needs is some good ol' love! An' I don't mean ta brag, but I, Harley Quinn, am the greatest matchmaker there ever was! Hell, I got those two cutie agents that were hired ta get dirt on me together--I can definitely hook any of you up!

[she rubs her hands together in glee. please, let her do this.]

So here's the dealie-o! Ya gotta reply to this message with your likes, dislikes, age, and preference! Oh, and if you're single or not! I really gotta know if you guys are single or not!!

[gee, harley, are you trying to get information and get davesprite some kisses? you sly dog, you.]

[This is stupid. John's well aware it's stupid, but he can't help asking a question that's been gnawing away at him for more than a week now.]

How tall is everyone? I've been wondering, meeting with different people here, what the spread of heights might be. Among other things. If you aren't sure on specifics or if you don't know the measurement system, I can give you an idea of how to compare units you might be familiar with.

Here's my current list:

Alphonse - 7'4"
Stein - 6'10"
Joker - 6'5"
Magenta, Clint, Zack - 6'3"
Gabriel, House, Rhys - 6'2"
Mycroft, Castiel - 6'1"
Kunsel, Sherlock, Stephen - 6'0"
Enoch - 5'11"
America, Ecks - 5'10"
Alfie, Dorian - 5'8" - 5'9"
Ginger - 5'8"
Beckett - 5'7"
John - 5'6.5"
Sheena, Steph, Zell - 5'5"
Mary, Jim - 5'4"
Royce - 5'3"
Kid - 5'1"
Angel - 5'0"
Quark - 4'10"
[This idea has come to Stephen before, but this is the first time he's acted on it. Maybe it's seeing Karkat's name on the obituary yesterday, or maybe it's seeing Clint on the network again and remembering the pain the Avenger had been in when last he was alive and how Stephen had struggled to do anything about it. Or maybe, just maybe, it's guilt over having given in at last and taken some of the Vicodin Tony handed off to him for safekeeping to ease the constant pain in his hands. Like maybe if he gave back to the "community" somehow it'd make up for betraying a dead man's trust.

Whatever the reason, Stephen's switched on his video feed for the same reason he ever does: he's making a conscious effort to look trustworthy. He's sitting in what some might recognize as the soundproofed building near Mallard River Market, his expression clearer and calmer than he's felt in a long time thanks to the relief granted by the drug. By now his goatee has been swallowed up by almost two months' worth of scraggly growth, taking some of the edge off the superhero (or supervillain) look that comes hand in hand with the whole tunic and cape thing.

Hello, Norfinbury, Doctor Stephen Strange here. Today we're going to talk about meditation.

[He offers the camera a little smile.]

Now, I could tell you the part about how it's going to help you, you know, align your spirit and all that kind of stuff. I'm pretty sure most of you don't care, though, so I'll just point out that it also helps with stress and lowers blood pressure. Might help you sleep, too.

I've recorded a guided meditation for all of you; the file should be attached to this entry. Let me know how that works for you, and I can make more of them.

[True to his word, a file named [meditation1] is attached. It's a half-hour-long audio recording in which he explains to the listener how to get comfortable and prepared, then walks them through a series of visualizations that probably sound abstract to anyone who's never visited another dimension. It winds down with a re-grounding in reality, all delivered in his lowest, smoothest voice.]
