[Susan wasn't the sort of person who liked to make a fuss on the network. This was not to say that Susan didn't make a fuss about things, quite the opposite really, but she didn't like her fussing to be Public. In this one, singular instance, unfortunately, Susan's problem required a bit of a...community touch.

She wasn't happy about it, the asking or the necessity, but there was nothing for it. A network post was required and, as such, a network post she would do. It was worth it, in the end, if it helped her solve her problem...and it was far faster than putting up posters.

For those of you who haven't had the (debatable) pleasure of meeting or speaking to the Duchess of Sto Helit, her appearance might seem a bit odd. Not more odd than sentient suits of armor, of course, but everything was relative. Today, as every day, Susan was clad in a prim, quasi-Edwardian outfit and had her hair pulled back into a tight, unforgiving bun. Unlike every day, however, she was making an effort to look pleasant.

It wasn't really working.]


Alright, now that the excruciating nonsense with the armor and Clicks is through, and everyone's back in their right body, I...require assistance.

[Right, pleasant. Susan put in the effort to smile and look worried. She did the latter far more effectively than the former.]

That is, I need help.

During the commotion, I seem to have lost my pet and I've been unable to locate him.

[Susan held up a notepad with a crudely drawn picture on it. Art was clearly not her strong suit.]


This is approximately what he looks like.


[That's odd. What sort of creature is that?]


He is smallish.


[Well, that looks like a black bow...but the rest of it looks like--]


His name is Rocky.


[A rock.]


...


[Yes, it was definitely a rock with a bow on.]


...


[Susan stared at the screen after that last bit of information and just remained silent, daring anyone to comment. If she was telling a joke, she had the best straight face that had ever been or was ever likely to be. A long moment passed and Susan continued.]

If anyone sees him, I would be grateful if they would let me know. He's rather quick when spooked, but responds to his name. He can be lured with bits of colored chalk and guitar music.


(OOC: Feel free to respond to this post as a network entity or with an action thread below. Susan will be wandering around, holding bits of colored chalk, calling for a pet rock. She will be nearly anywhere in the Mansion, so have at.)

[ Sam looks to be in about the same situation as he usually is pre-broadcast; somewhere, like his room or the library, with a lot of papers and books in the area. His expression is one of both deep thought and piqued interest, as if he's thinking through one thing while broadcasting something entirely different. ]

Hey. [ And he clears his throat, brow creasing slightly. ] I'm not sure how many people knew this, but a friend of mine who was here before--Clara--had an idea to start up something like a school. That was a few months back. I know we've been through some major crap this past month, and I know it's only gonna get tougher from here on out, but... I thought it over, and I still think it's a good idea. Even if it's not a totally kosher set of classes, I bet we can get together a bunch of people who've got, uh... "specialized" skill sets to teach. Could even be helpful with this upcoming doom and gloom, if we make it that way.

Anyone interested, just lemme know so I can get a read on this. Teaching, participating, whatever.

[personal profile] thneedifestdestiny
[So, on Christmas, The Once-ler found his stocking completely full of yarn. It was so full of yarn that when he dumped it on his bed and looked back at the empty stocking, he was pretty sure they shouldn't have all been able to fit in there in the first place (which was kind of weird, but Wonderland is always weird, so whatever).

At first, he was kind of annoyed - what the heck was he supposed to do with all of this? They weren't Truffula tufts, and if he'd wanted dumb regular yarn he could have just gotten it out of the closet. He's practically swimming in the stuff now, and they're useless for making Thneeds.

But, he was walking around earlier today and noticed the forest on the edge of the grounds, cold and bare. And suddenly, he knew exactly what to do with the yarn.

About two hours and thirty-seven minutes later, the edge of the forest is starting to look significantly more colorful. Anyone who goes to investigate the sudden and mysterious rainbow yarn bombing will find the Once-ler high up in the trees, hanging upside down and knitting like a fiend.

[ Roses are grey, violets are grey, poetry is really difficult for people living in the Mirror Universe. In their bland and dreary garden in front of the mansion the Duchess is the only speck of colour to be seen. And contrary to her last transmission or her bleak surroundings she is looking positively cheerful today! ]

What harm could a little curiosity possibly do? [ The Duchess coos, but her attention is not on her audience: It's on the little green sapling she holds cradled in her palms. ] T'is cold there, ever so cold, but it is always coldest before the dawn!

[ She kneels and begins digging a hole into the colourless soil. ]

You shall fight for us, you know, even when you're all alone here, and I'll have my answer then, I need only be bold enough to ask!

[ Carefully she plants her little speck of green and buries its roots. When she is done the sapling flickers grey, like a static image about to die. Worried she holds her breath in anticipation, but the scene has already calmed: The sapling is still green.

The Duchess smiles fondly.

[personal profile] akapeanut
[She can't hide it forever. She's lucked out-- events based around secrets, events that drove her to experiment with her powers. Nothing has thus far forced or coerced her to "come out" to the entire mansion about what she is. Some sort of loyalty and respect to Rube, mixed with the primal fear of being different and therefore weakened, has kept her true nature more or less a secret. Something she only tells people when she has to, or when she's decided to trust them.

But this past event...people had to have known, right? Wouldn't they question? Wouldn't they put two and two together? Even here, where she doesn't have to reap, death follows her everywhere...

People couldn't be that stupid, right?

She could bank on them being oblivious, maybe. In days gone by, she probably would've been certain she'd get by without saying anything. But the longer she waits, the longer it will seem she's been "lying" or "keeping it from them" and while she doesn't think of it that way, it only takes one person being offended or frightened to start a mob. She's gotta say something.]


So that last event, uh. It's fuzzy, but I know I ran into some of you. And I got the impression I was sort of famous. Or, uh, infamous, maybe. "Giltine"?

[She lets out a nervous breath of a laugh.] I looked that up. Apparently she's a Lithuanian mythological figure. She's got a poisonous tongue, and at some point she got locked in a coffin?

[Her gaze flicks up to the camera, then away again.]

More importantly, she's their version of the grim reaper. Which is what I am. A grim reaper.

[There's a long pause where she doesn't breathe, doesn't speak. She said it. There's no taking it back.]

I, uh, my tongue's not poisonous. To be honest, most of the mythologies on the Earth I came from got it wrong. There were a lot of us. We had no say in how or when people died. We just showed up to get their souls. And if we didn't do it in time, the person would have to feel the pain of their death, so we-- we were good guys, I think?

[She's babbling, a little.] I mean, we're not bad guys, at least. So, um. I'm not evil or anything. And I know some of you know this, like it's not news to you but. But I didn't want people to think I was keeping it from them because I'm looking for ways to hurt. Because I'm not. I'm just...the same old George.

[Another long silence, and she thinks she's said everything she can say, really. So she reaches out and ends the feed.]

[There's nothing out of the ordinary about the man on the feed. He's dark-haired, green-eyed and trim - handsome, maybe, if it weren't for that scowl he's wearing. Certainly nothing about him suggests that he's currently being piloted by an archangel, unless one happens to be attuned to the supernatural or a good friend of John Winchester's.]

As fascinating as the spellwork needed to bind me to this place must be, I have to say that I'm not particularly interested in seeing any more of it. I have more important tasks to see to.

[An apocalypse to keep on track, younger siblings to cuff back into line... He's got a busy schedule. Running Heaven isn't a job that affords him any vacation time.

Even without the weight of responsibility bearing down on him, the feel of Wonderland is unfamiliar and unpleasant; it's not Home. For an entity used to having the whole of creation only a few wingbeats away, it's also small. Confined. He's spent the past several millenia limited to Heaven, sure, but it's different when he doesn't have a choice in the matter. He's not supposed to be the one in a cage.

There's a soft sound, feathers batting against the air, as an invisible set of wings shifts at his back. Whatever brought him here isn't letting him leave, no matter how hard he tries to take off. After so many years without his Father's presence to command him Michael has become unaccustomed to having his leash yanked - not that his Father had ever needed a leash. He'd only needed to speak, and Michael had bent to serve Him.

He's significantly (and visibly) less thrilled at the prospect of someone else trying to assert authority over him. He serves only his Father.]


It must have taken some effort to summon me here, so I assume it wasn't done without reason. I'd be very interested to hear what for, and by whom.

[And that's about as polite a request for information as you're going to get out of him. It's rude to summon a celestial being and then leave them hanging.]

[ he hasn't spoken much on the network since his arrival, but the arrival had been somewhat of a surprise enough for this particular doctor. he's taken it upon himself to become more acquainted with Wonderland, particularly the kitchens and the cupboards, consistently keeping himself occupied by creating things in the kitchens.

as of right now, he can be seen in the library, legs crossed as he glances down into the device, the thought striking him: ]


I feel as though this place would benefit from my services. I have heard from many individuals who seem to be ...unhappy. Perhaps slightly unstable. Depressed, anxious. One would think in our surroundings, these feelings would be compounded.

If you wish to seek professional help in the form of a counselor, please do allow me to be of assistance. I'm a trained forensic psychiatrist. Considering the circumstances, and an unfortunately bleak future regarding returning home, I would like to set up a practice here in Wonderland. As of now, our sessions would be either in the library; if you would care for a more private setting I would be more than happy to offer my living arrangement as an office environment as well.

Feel free to either reach me here, or if you would care to, you may leave a message for me at any time and I will be happy to set up an appointment for us both. [ he smiles, briefly, the action spreading thin over his lips. ] Thank you.

The video springs to life, and he stares down the barrel with a goofy smile. He's outside somewhere, crouched down in the grass. And while he would normally avoid the network at all costs, he has a very important question for all of you: ]

Hey, Wonderland. I figure now is as good of a time as any to celebrate my arrival here. So in honor of me, I'm throwing a little get together for everyone that'd like to come on down. I did a little investigating the other day and I am happy to say that I found a room large enough to house all of you crazy people.

[The video pans over to a nicely decorated ball room with tables of food and drink. It's looking more like a club and less like a fancy dance room. He's somehow managed to get a jukebox from the closet and drag it there. Everything is all set up and ready to go.]

So anyone that feels the need to party knows where to come. All the food and alcohol you can handle and then some. If you're looking for a good time, look no further. There ain't no party like an Oliver Queen party.

[He'll finish it off with a drink and head back over to the fully stocked bar.

How on earth...? I'm able to touch things again. This can’t be right. [He holds the device farther away from his face with one hand, running the other through his hair.]

I was reduced to almost nothing. Again.[A pause.] Perhaps it's this place. Whatever this place is, it is making me whole once more. Then that might mean people can see me. [He almost chuckles, grinning.]

If the Man in the Moon isn’t in charge of whatever world this is, then perhaps I can start anew. A world without those blasted Guardians.

[A pair of golden eyes peer over his shoulder, a snort audible through the feed. Pitch glances back and smiles as the horse-like creature behind him nuzzles his cheek.]

Mn, yes, this will be an excellent start for us.

The wall behind him is covered in painted-on sigils, all of them having been recently touched up, and the intrepid angel might be able to spot a few bits of Enochian, but only a few, and Kevin's not even really sure they're useful at keeping out hellhounds. Probably can't hurt, right?

When he speaks, it's just a little too fast, the words tumbling out one after the other. ]


Salt your doors and windows. Don't go out unless you have to, or unless you have some holy oil, which you probably don't because it's hard to find.

[ He stops, thoughtful. ] Do any of you have holy oil? I'll take some if you do. I just want to make a pair of glasses so I can see the them since they're invisible because they're freaking hellhounds holy crap how did they even get here? [ That sure was the start to a breakdown. Kevin's eyes are wide and his voice gets higher and more strained. ] What is this place? Who would be crazy enough to drag hellhounds into Wonderland? What's the other option, carrying bombs with you everywhere you go?!

[ So, that was panicked. He breaks off, breathing hard, and looks away to gather himself. ]

Like I said. Keep salt handy. Try to stay safe.

[ Kevin ends his message abruptly. ]

[ OOC: He'll spend the rest of the time the hellhounds are here in his room, which smells of salt, borax, and different spices and powders used in the making of demon bombs. It's possible to want to duck into Kevin's room to take refuge, or to call him up for hellhound advice as he'll be in there like Control Room Kevin. ]

There have been enough alerts sent out by now that I think we're all getting a pretty clear picture of what's going on.

[Emma's expression is both hard and determined as she looks directly into the feed, unflinching. The howling has been driving her nuts, but she's been spending the better part of her day quietly observing the network, paying particular attention to any messages that seem to have concrete information about what's coming -- and how to deal with it, the Red Queen's warning several days earlier included.]

Something is coming. Our best bet is to listen to the advice that's been given to us and find someplace safe to hole up. Sticking together is going to be better than people locking themselves into their rooms alone. I'm heading down to the clinic. Anyone who decides to try and be a hero and gets themselves injured, I'm guessing I'll see you there.

[Provided those people survive that particular poor life choice.]

We've seen both the diner and the bar used as safehouses during previous crises. I'll be helping to defend the clinic, but is there anyone out there interested in warding those places, too? There are a lot of people here. We won't be able to fit everyone into one place, but if we can get folks who have experience with this kind of thing posted at each safehouse, we'll be better off for it.

[ The video opens in darkness, the only sound to be heard the gentle movement of waves lapping against the shore. However, the very moment a tinge of light begins to creep over the horizon, a Voice begins to sing.

It is a Song the likes of which few have ever heard before. It rises as the light grows stronger, swelling with the tide and soaring as a bird may fly. It resonates in the air as well as the earth, a happy sound that could make even the most solemn of men dance to its melody.

The brightness of the morning spills over the waves, glistening with the newness of day. The Song crescendos finally as the sun peaks in the sky, only to diminish and fade into the sounds of the sea.

A few moments pass before the Singer finally appears. Great paws, golden and velveted all, appear first as he steps into view. A large, shaggy lion pads silently to the water edge, the breeze rustling its mane.

He stands there for a little while before turning and walking down the beach. ]

[Susan normally liked to appear very pressed and presentable when she was in Public. While there was a distinctive difference between the magical network and Public, it wasn't quite distinctive enough for her liking. However, disheveled as she was, she had other, more pressing concerns than the state of her hair or the fact that her shirt was stained beyond saving.

(Well, the second bit was relevant, at least, given that it was stained with a generous amount of her own blood.)

Susan took a deep breath and regarded the screen with the most neutral expression she could manage. She wanted nothing more than to pass out, or whine about the wound in her back, but both of those activities were (ultimately) counter-productive. It didn't do to go unconscious or start panicking people, particularly when you were asking them for medical help.]


I seem to be having a bit of trouble.

[Given how pale she was, this was a fairly serious understatement. She was seated at the table in a cheerfully decorated tea room and, although she wasn't actually lying on it, it was a near thing.]

I would walk to the clinic to get this sorted, but I'm afraid I'm having difficulty staying upright.

If there is anyone with a bit of...first-aid experience near the tea-room on the first floor, I would be much obliged if they could see to stopping by. [And, because she was quite certain that the blast in her room hadn't done anything as convenient as killing Mr. Teatime, she added:] If you've got a sword as well, and the know-how to weild it, that would be ideal.

(OOC: So, generally speaking, the people involved in the Action portions of this have already discussed it with me on Plurk, but absolutely anyone and everyone is welcome to answer the video posting. Susan will ICly decline any Magic or Magic-like assistance, though, so if your character would spot this and would definitely offer to help that way, feel free to tag in!

Being smote just ain't his idea of a good time.

[The video feed comes to focus on a rather.. unsettling image. Not one, but two Regina's. Admittedly, the yellow-eyed being looked a tad bit more menacing than the other, but that didn't make matters much better for some.]

Oh? And what are you planning on doing? Are you going to use magic to get rid of me?

[There's a pause before the shadow begins to cackle.]

Wait a moment. That's right! You can't use your magic, can you. All because that little boy of ours made you promise not to.

[Regina kept quite, clearly doing her best to ignore its words. She now knew what the Cheshire Cat was speaking about and she wasn't at all pleased.]

You know Henry never truly love you once he's found out all the terrible things you've done. All lives you taken. Crushed even.

[Regina made her way down the entrance way stairs and out into the yard.]

I'm just like magic you know. Can't be ignored. Can't be forgotten. Still a piece of you that'll forever tug away at your mind. Oh, I guess I'm also like your mother in that respect.

[Regina sneered, cursing a few inaudible words under breath to which the shadow laughed once more.]

There's nothing you can do that will make them accept you. Not Henry. Not Emma. Most certainly not little miss Snow White or her Charming. But you don't want their acceptance, do you? You just want them-

Enough!

[Regina turned, a ball of fire blazing in the palm of her hand.]

I've just about had it with your words.

(( OOC: Regina can literally be found anywhere during any day of the event. In her room arguing with her shadow; in the mansion doing just the same; in the yards getting ready to beam a fire ball at her shadow's head; or out by the stables, sulking as her shadow is chatting away in her ear. Just let me know where you're running into her and we can take it from there! Video/Text is available if you want her somewhere specific, and if it makes more sense for your character to contact her this way. She's literally open to any location!))

[Castiel is moving along the hallways of the mansion, patrolling the building and subsequently the grounds. Occasionally, he stops his purposeful march to take flight, cross some distance with the beating of his wings. But always, always, there's this exact copy of him. Well. Not a perfect copy. More stiff, if that's possible, rigid, with hard and distant eyes. The words he speaks to Castiel vary, but the message is always the same. It's Friday, and Castiel itches for a way out.

He's the soldier Castiel was always supposed to be. Used to be.]


Come Marching Home )

[Castiel stops by the edge of the sea, frowns at the rolling waves and pretends not to hear his own, cold and dispassionate voice remind him of who is was created to be. Lips pressed into a thin line, he addresses the network in a short video. A little behind him, his Shadow can be seen, cold and unfeeling and more stoic than even the real Castiel manages to be.]

You're a traitor, Castiel. You broke rank, you deserted, you rebelled, you're falling. For an inferior line of apes and the world they ravage. Why?

There has to be a way to silence them permanently. If you find one, contact me. 

[The video snaps shut just as the Shadow opens his mouth to speak more. Castiel, it seems, wants to limit the screen time of his true soldier-self, the one not sympathetic as much as possible.]

((ooc: Feel free to contact Castiel via video, or if you wish, encounter him anywhere on the mansion grounds or in the mansion itself while he pointedly tries not to acknowledge the company he's forced to keep. Warning: His mood is somewhat poor, and the Shadow will not judge humans/mortals kindly.))

[Henry's been walking around the castle, trying to ditch the little yellow eyed clone who keeps whispering in his ear. If you walk past him, or hear the accidental feed, you'll hear some of Henry's current insecurities.]

Do you really think everything they told you this time was the truth? They lied before, they could lie again. And what about the others. If Mary Margaret did that and she's so pure of heart, imagine what David has done. Or your real parents. How can you prefer your adopted mother over them anyway? They brought you into the world, she just lied to you and caused misery to everyone you grew up knowing.

(OOC Note: Henry can be found almost anywhere in the castle so just say where you are in your subject line or tag and that's fine, so long as I know.)

[Souji is outside when he flips the feed on, sitting in the grass. With the possibility of anyone meeting his Shadow, whom he's never even had to face despite this being a phenomenon from his world, he's gotten himself as far from the Mansion and other people as he can manage. The patches of dark and light green grass behind him attests to where he's fled to.

He opens his mouth, then glances down and to one side at a murmur from that direction. A few seconds later, he looks at the camera again and takes a deep breath.]


They're called Shadows.

[That might be an abrupt way to begin, but he figures everyone's aware of the Shadows' presence by now.]

They are you, so there's no point in arguing about it with them.

[He pauses for a minute, shifting away as that someone off screen tugs at his sleeve.]

All the Shadows I've met can become violent pretty easily. These ones don't seem like they're going to, from what I can tell, but everyone should be careful, just in case.

[The tugging on his sleeve becomes more persistent and a rare look of irritation crosses Souji's face before he shuts off the feed.]

Today I was going to celebrate the opening of my new shop on first floor. Obviously that is no longer the case since mood is too dampened to properly have a grand opening. Well done Wonderland. You've stolen the day's joy away. You may have foiled the festivities, but you will never take my inflatable plastic men alive.

Regardless, I will still be at service today if any of my items catch your interest:

item list )

The bat is effective against ghosts, though I can't promise they'll work against the doubles currently running around. You're certainly welcome to try if you meet my prices. I understand that credits are not a common currency here, so bartering with goods, services, or information is welcome. Particularly if you carry items from your own worlds.

Though I warn you should you decide to drop by: my doppelganger may not be suitable for all audiences.
