danceoffs: what i've been sayin (i think you're seein)
[personal profile] danceoffs
[the video feed turns on to reveal (1) pretty disheveled-looking dude, who may or may not have a visible bruise starting to form on the side of his head (thanks basement wall, you're a real pal). but he's trying his best to conduct himself like some approximation of a professional, because this is a very important inquiry.]

I'm gonna be honest, I don't know how far this is gonna go, because this technology is pretty primitive, just throwing that out there, but — I'm looking for some folks.

[consider this an apb]

First up, Gamora, who is, like, literally the coolest person ever. I mean, she could probably kill something with one hand tied behind her back without even looking at it — really freaking cool, right? She's super great. I wouldn't recommend pissing her off, though, because her bad side is really not somewhere you want to be.

[does he know this from experience? maybe. a beat, then:]

Next, Drax. He may look a little mean, which is totally fair because, you know, big, muscular guy who's probably strong enough to crush your throat without even thinking about it, but I promise he's a lot nicer than that. Just don't try a joke; it's probably not gonna work.

Also, Rocket, better known as "trash panda". Which you should definitely call him, by the way, it's his favorite nickname one-hundred percent. [no, no it isn't.] Anyway, though, talking raccoon, has a thing for leaving all his shit lying around everywhere and likes to blow stuff up, can't miss him.

And Groot. Looks like a small baby tree, has great taste in music [says peter, without one microscopic speck of bias on him at all whatsoever], and is only gonna answer you with "I am Groot." He's actually saying a lot more than that, but it's just a thing.

And last ones — Kraglin, pretty tall guy who probably has an arrow with him, and Mantis, who's kinda shy, but she's really, really nice, and you should be nice to her, too.

[you might be wondering, does this guy ever pause to take a breath, or do the words, like the years, just keep on coming and they don't stop coming? well, right now, he actually does, proving to be true to his word that those were, in fact, his last ones, so that question's answered. it's about a full twenty-five seconds before he says anything else.]

So, uh, if you've seen any of these people....

[and that's when peter falls silent, because this thought that he might not actually find anyone, so soon after... everything, has his throat feeling tight and his chest feeling a little heavy.

the message cuts off.]

[ ooc: open to thread jacking/easily seen unless otherwise indicated. wonderland went haywire and let it happen w/ this post so people can freely read responses and reply. if you have any concerns about the bar or want to help generate a memorial for those gone, head there to oocly talk about it! ]

( the camera pans on damon who is seated up on top of the bar. it's hard to imagine it's been an entire year. how much he's changed, how much his relationship with elena and with people in wonderland has changed since then. he's in a much better place despite how hard it's been lately, despite witnessing elena's- damon smiles for the camera. )

Wonderland, you've officially been graced with my presence for an entire wild and crazy year. When I arrived, I was handing out ponies to everyone who made it worth my while, and now I'm giving you a fully operating bar with regular activities. ( damon pans out to give a view of it all and then he turns the video back toward his face again. he smirks and lifts up a glass in toast like he did for his very first network post. ) You're welcome. The name's TBA.

I realize there's already a bar here, but no one's claimed it since- since Cami also disappeared. ( and she was a friend so that's harder to talk about. ) It's been empty. It felt... strange picking up a bar with so much history from old timers. ( it's not just the fact he bit Simon though there's also that. They made their mark here, and for all damon's faults, it wouldn't feel right.

he steps out of the bar to indicate where it's located. Level 4. damon turns the camera towards the chalk board which lists out the bar's current schedule. )

My girl tells me apparently, for some reason, Trivia Nights are the popular thing in bars so it's on our weekly schedule along with a host of other fun times to be enjoyed by all. Schedule changes monthly so keep checking back.

I'm looking for people who want to work even if money has no meaning so I can't exactly pay you. But consider this... it's something to keep boredom from swallowing you whole and you get to help out your fellow, trapped Wonderland-er. Need bartenders, waiters and waitresses, and chefs if you can cook. And yes, I know we can pull it all out of the closets perfectly, but sometimes it's nice to have someone make something for you even if it's not perfect.

( he lifts up his glass again in toast for the camera. ) Especially if it's not perfect. ( perfect isn't real, and damon always wants what's real. )
