[Maybe it's how antsy he's feeling about this stupid experiment with Sherlock, maybe it's leaving Wilson behind, maybe it's the fight with Stephen. And maybe it's just Norfinbury getting to him, but House opens his map to plan out his next movements and sees numbers out of order, seemingly random skips, and he can't stand it anymore. It takes him a good chunk of the evening he could have spent traveling to work on getting his map and his guide updated, but he does and decides this particular update warrants more comment than some of the others.

Well, and people should know he's not a little kid anymore.]

reorganized the map
i'll be updating numbers in new areas as we find more buildings
it's too confusing having this crap out of order

[Also, it's like nails on a chalkboard in the back of his mind right now. He knows it's irrational, but that doesn't stop it.]

updated romanov's building guide to match
you wanna add something, tell me
have a complaint about it?
talk to someone else
*Like most of Brain's posts this one is made up of clips strung together. It starts with a shot of snow; words have been dug into it.*

itis no
u s e

*It stays on that for a few moments then switches to first person video of Brian approaching a metal building*. He pauses at the metal door for a moment then shows a keycard to the camera. Its missing a photo but it has a name. Robert Miller.
Brian tries the keycard on the door (this includes rubbing the card on the door as well as more conventional means). It doesn't open.

The last clip is just of Brian--or, some weird guy in a tan hoodie and a black mask (with a red :( on it) for anyone who doesn't know what to expect with @totheark. He waves, then turns the video off.*

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

James Barnes
[The second part of the message is OPEN. The first 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. 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. We're working to get more copies.]

Shadownet Access Only
Winter, it's John. I wanted to get this summary to you sooner, but things have kept cropping up. Sorry about that. I'm covering ground you've already been informed about, but it's all here for posterity. Bullet points, as usual, covering Day 266 through Day 289. Others are welcome to fill in the finer details, of course. Not much has happened odd events-wise that you didn't hear about, but we have been doing some extra exploring that's pulling up some useful leads.

Open to Everyone
Hullo, everyone. Dr. Watson here with a summary update of recent happenings. My apologies in delaying getting these together. A few things have cropped up here and there.

[To put it mildly. Very mildly.]

For our relatively new arrivals: along with what's here, I have additional summary notes and am happy to answer questions if you have them. I'm heading to pick up a patient at the moment, but I'm also available for medical consultation as one of the medics here. Please let me know if you need anything. I'm running an on-again, off-again blood transfusion service for those with severe MN Poisoning. It's only a temporary reprieve from symptoms, but blood transfusions from healthy donors has proven to alleviate MN symptoms for up to two weeks.

Additional Information )
[Peter didn't meant to turn on video, but his hands are so frozen even with his makeshift baby-blanket-mittens that he just smashes his fingers numbly on the tablet until something happened. He also meant to send this only to John, but again, frozen finger-smashing.

He looks terrible, he's shivering, his face isn't as swollen anymore but there's still evidence of faded bruising on his cheek and nose that look just slightly off from being broken, as well as a frozen nosebleed, but there's also frosted reddish patches here and there, and on his ears, where his makeshift scarf from cloth scraps didn't quite shield his face and head from crawling frantically through the snow. He's obviously not been shaving, either.]

Bucky's dead.

[He's still catching his breath, wincing as he repositions his hurt leg on his seated position, as he leans his head against the wall. Trying to fight the stupid anomaly and then make it back here had been absolute hell on it. Bucky had been carrying him the whole time since he couldn't walk, which had been helping, but whatever progress he'd made over the past week was completely trashed. He had no painkillers on him, so gritting his teeth and trying not to completely lose his cool or whimper out loud would be all he could do.

Wherever he is, at least it's indoors. Once he catches his breath, he continues. His voice hitches, and he wipes clumsily at his nose. He hates this. He hates this, he feels so damn useless. He is useless.]

Just barely made lockdown, I couldn't...damn it, I couldn't krutacking save him. One of those things got him. Some creepy thing with a shield, I don't...

He saved my life.

He didn't fight it...why didn't he fight it?

[Was it because there was no way they could have ran away from it? He knew that thing, though. He said "Steve-- pal, you're stronger than this. Til the end of the line, right? Steve?"

He can't really work his fingers on his Zune all that well, which is very low on battery, and he's been compelled to hoard his songs lately, but he doesn't care. This is the least he could do. His voice shakes.]

This one's for you, Bucky.

[He plays the following song.]

Good evening.

I've been scouring the hospital all day, and unfortunately I have found absolutely nothing in regards to the nanomachines. I realize that anything like equipment, machines, or pamphlets or literature would have likely been found already. If you have, please let me know. If the hospital is truly absent of anything to do with nanomachines, that is also something to note. Stolen, perhaps, or wiped clean for some reason.

Also, if anyone is in the vicinity, I would like to speak with you to borrow your tablet for a few hours. This will involve nothing dangerous, mind you.

[Well, the last time he'd tried a morgue experiment and considered himself perfectly safe he'd died, but this really should be safe this time.]
[Flynn is seated on a couch, wrapped into what appears to be a combination of perforated cushions and a throw blanket thanks Rhys you are the best. It's late and he looks as comfortable as he looks tired, which has a lot to do with the fact that he's slowly warming up for the first time since he got here. May or may not doze off at some point.]

Hello everybody, this is your librarian speaking, bringing you a small leisure intermission. Some of you may have heard about the book exchange that is currently happening. If not: There is a book exchange happening and we decided to take it one step further, actually setting up a small long-term e-library to collect and distribute copies.

I will be taking pictures of books I come across, creating rudimentary digital versions which I will then make available to interested parties. I will link you the provisional list in a second.

If you are in possession of or come across reading material during your travels and are willing to contribute, that would be much appreciated. I realize that you may have better things to do, with all the exploring and surviving and PTSD getting in the way, but if you ever find yourself holed up in a cozy murder cabin and you can't sleep because the howling wind really creeps you out and you happen to have a book in your pocket, well, here's an idea how to pass the time.

I also know some of you use this kind of stuff for trade. While I'm willing to listen to your offers with a stern scowl on my face, I am literally wearing my tie for a scarf so I really don't think I have anything of interest to you.

Hope everyone's inside, keep yourself safe and warm and have a good night.

[As promised, the video comes with a link attached.]
Found the way forward. Problem is that it's sealed up.

[ There are pictures attached of a metal building attached to a metal wall. ]

Looks like there's another key to find.

[ The message for everyone ends there. ]

Having fun playing at school?

[The video feed starts in a bright and sterile morgue. A single drawer is open, a body bag unzipped and left where it sat on the drawer. A very slight collection of dust sits at the edge of the drawer, as if there had been something sitting there earlier. The camera pans through the remainder of the morgue quickly, as there isn't much else to see: more pristine counters and closed drawers.

Through a door, the video catching a peek of a red coat and a gloved hand opening the handle, and then the the camera reveals a darkened room. It's difficult to see; the tablet image jostles and a mini-flashlight turns on as the camera is straightened, and revealed are symbols of the prophet emblazoned everywhere. The entire area is decorated in a motif of black and red, curtains drawn, scattered chairs around the room and facing from. It's some kind of funeral home, and from the looks of it, it belonged to the cult.

After a few pans of the room, the video turns off.]

There is no mention of this building on any of the maps I've seen. Has anyone else seen it?
Mm, so, is anyone else here from a very long time ago?

[Magenta apparently decides to leave it at that for a couple minutes, before returning to elaborate on the question with a carefully maintained tone of carelessness to his voice. It's a far cry from what he actually sounds like when he's excited or happy, but to the casual listener, it's probably close enough.]

I mean--you know. I think we're s'posed to be in...twenty-one-and-something, I can't remember the exacts, but is anyone here from long before now? A few folks I've talked to have mentioned they're from twenty-something, early twenty-something, but I don't know about all of y'all.

[A pause.]

I'm from 1891, and I reckon it's all a little new to everyone, but it sure seems like y'all have an easier time of gettin' used to things! Computers, and the nan...nan--nanomachines, and whatever else. I don't really know much about any of it, and I'm not that smart to begin with! It's all past me, and I'm sorry for not bein' much help. I guess what I'm meanin' to ask is how everyone deals with figurin' stuff out from the future.

He~ey, though, while we're on it: tell me about the future! I've heard the airplanes are marvelous. I'm very interested in all of it, even if I can't quite get it.

I need the following things for an experiment into fighting off anomalies, and I am willing to trade:

- Springs or coils of metal that can be made into springs
- Screws
- Rubber bands
- Pipe plug or similar
- Lengths of piping

I have everything else I need.
