[After the slightest bit of fumbling, Red appears on the screen, dressed in his customary three piece suit and Fedora. He has an extremely important question, after, of course, the customary introduction. It's only polite]

Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Raymond Reddington.

[The introduction, like his wardrobe, is just slightly over the top. Other than that, he seems completely at ease, like winding up in Wonderland is just another day for him.]

While I have to commend our hosts on the accommodations, it seems as though the food and drink leaves something to be desired. Does anyone know where to get an above average chocolate chip cookie? I’m having a hell of a time locating one that doesn’t taste like the packaging it comes in. A good scotch wouldn't go unappreciated either.

[ Claire's mostly staying with Jamie for right now, but on the heels of Steve Roger's announcement, she feels the need to offer assistance. ]

This is Claire Fraser. In light of the things we've heard and the fact that...cutting off limbs is a way to help keep from dying, I wanted to offer my help. Amputations are primarily what I performed in the field. If you need me, for anything medical, I was an army medic. I'll help. Please, just let me know.

[ That's it; she's worried and afraid, it probably shows in the tensity of her voice, but she's not going to decline to be of service to anyone should they need it. ]

[ When Sarah comes into view, she's sitting with her elbows on a table, fingers steepled, and she actually looks Very Serious™ while contemplating how best to phrase her question. The conversation has come up privately, and she needs to have a full understanding of one of the parts of Wonderland she's never bothered with - the Vendors. ]

Hey. I know everyone's kind of consumed with what the dormouse had to say or...didn't say. But I really want to see where everyone falls regarding opinions on the Vendors.

Since we can't pick the memory they want, that means somehow they can rifle through our minds to pick the thing they want to take. And it'd probably have to be something meaningful or impactful. If I ever, for whatever reason, had no option but to use the Vendors, I could lose something like the birth of my son. I'd have no choice or say in the matter.

[ Her reason for using the Vendors would have to be extraordinary. Something involving Kurt or Ray and dire circumstances. ]

Anyway, my actual question is...how do we know, if the Vendors can access our minds and memories, that they or someone or something else doesn't do that all the time, on a constant basis? If Wonderland does actually use our memories to fuel the things that happen here, does that mean our brains are constantly being...I don't know. Monitored???

I'd really like some opinions on this.

[ Sarah isn't paranoid at all usually, and she'd say this is more concerned than paranoid, but it feels like such a violation of privacy that she can't help asking the community at large. ]

A little over a year ago I provided the mansion with an instructional...brochure of sorts, to better orient newcomers and in particular those who are not from what can only be considered the "modern" era.

[One great unfairness about Wonderland is its tendency to forget that a number of the people living in it are not from time periods that utilise microwaves, for example, or even know what they are. The learning curve is steep for the temporally disadvantaged.]

Seeing as these sorts of publications are only successful when circulated and given the appropriate communal response, I think it only fair to extend the offer of amending any aspects to account for the amenities people may add to our shared residence in the future.

I'm going to leave a number of these in the foyer and on reading tables in the library, but would appreciate it if others would assist in forwarding the file to new residents should in-person explanations become untenable.

[All this just in time for the recent appearance of the dormouse on the network, heralding another event - it makes this particular announcement the more appropriate, since she hasn't been as public a figure lately for personal reasons. Evelyn collects herself for a moment before continuing, because as a long-time resident it is incumbent upon her to broach the issue if only to gather perspectives.]

...additionally, I would like to hear opinions on the notion of holding a public forum about mitigating damages - not necessarily the public safety issue as discussed in previous network announcements, but approaching the aftermath of disasters, both wrought by Wonderland and its residents.

[Only in part does this come from a place of emotion, but the greater percentage stems from practicality. If people are to peaceably live in the same spaces then it must be a team effort, from all sides.

Herself included.
]

This is not to rally a police force. This is not to encourage mob-like behaviour. This is to calmly, openly discuss the subject of accountability and greater communication.

I take it the vague message we received from a rodent today is the type of unhelpful missive people have warned me lead to events?

[ GREAT. Claire's super stoked. 100% ready to go. ]

How does one typically prepare themselves when you've no idea what's about to happen?

[Claire has absolutely no idea what she's doing and while she is trying to broadcast at large, she doesn't mean to quite yet as she fumbles with what each button does.]

Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ.

[It's then that she sees the 'recording' indicator on, and she takes a deep breath to steady herself.]

If you'll forgive me. I'm afraid we don't have technology like this when I'm from, but I did want to offer my services. If you have a malady and conventional medicine hasn't worked for you, or you simply aren't sure what to get from our captor's closets, I might be able to offer you comfort via different herbs and concoctions. Some of you might even be as displaced as I am and find yourselves more comfortable with my methods as your way of healing. I understand there's modern medicine but this is a specialty, I suppose. A naturalist's way. I'm also not positive of the medical personnel here. If you are medically inclined, would you care to introduce yourself?

My name is Claire Fraser, I'm a healer at home. More injuries of war, but I'm able to adapt.

[Injuries on battlefields, injuries because of stubborn Scots. They're really eerily similar.]

In any case, if you're in need of someone to help quickly, now you'll know how to reach me.

[She presses the button she thinks is the one for turning the recording off. When it doesn't stop, she presses it again, then again, and as she's mid-curse, she finally gets it.]
