Ron's just...wandering around, looking lost. And uncomfortable. He knows what everyone's said about people leaving, and he understands what it means that Harry's room is empty.

Still, he can't help but hope.]

[What's this? A new voice on the network? Oh, and what a voice it is. One might even call it smooth, if not also sonorous. It's a male voice, and whoever he is, he doesn't sound all that frightened or surprised.]

...Helllloooo? Night Vale? I don’t know if you can hear me...I seem to have slipped out of time and space again. This time, however, my surroundings are--actually quite pleasant! I am in a large room that looks a bit like an upscale hotel room. Possibly a Marriot? There is a bed and other appropriate furniture, as well as a closet and full length mirror on one wall. There is a door...I can only assume it leads to the rest of the hotel.

If this even is a hotel.

[There's a shuffling sound of feet on carpet.] There is also a window. I am moving over to it now...perhaps I can get the lay of the land from here. Let’s see. There are trees…and beyond that is...oh...oh my. It couldn't be. Listeners...you’re not going to believe this...I can see the ocean from here! Oh, dear listeners...I think it’s safe to say that...I’m not in Night Vale anymore.

[ Isaac might have kept to himself. He might have hidden away and spoken to no one and made no posts to the network, silent to the point of non-existence. But you're in luck, Wonderland, because thanks to your little hellhound outbreak, newcomer Isaac Mendez has decided to grace you with his presence. You're so very lucky.

He's kept his eyes and ears open, and apparently hellhounds are pretty dangerous or something? Who would have thunk it, but people are getting hurt, and he really isn't fond of that when something can possibly be done to prevent it. Also, it would sure be nice to focus on something beyond his own angst and guilt.

[Harry meant to sleep in a bit this morning, but weird noises kept waking him up. And they weren't just any weird noises: those were definitely howls that he was hearing. So he got up and did the first thing that made sense to him: ask if anyone else was hearing what he was hearing.

So, bleary eyes and all, Harry turned on the device to see if he was going mad, or hearing things, or imagining things.]


Um, hello. I just wanted to ask if anyone else was hearing howling coming from somewhere outside.

[He rubbed the back of his neck a little apprehensively. Howls could mean a lot of things, especially in the wizarding world, but also in general. He hoped that the howls were coming from just regular wolves, and not werewolves or anything like that.]

I mean, yeah, I could be imagining it, and I almost hope I am. Just thought I'd ask and see if anyone else is hearing it or not, because then I'll know.

[Know if he's crazy or if it's more of a collective thing.]

Greetings Wonderland,

I am here today because many of you have asked me who I am. I am the United States of America. This answer has led many of you to confusion. I do not entirely blame you for your ignorance. I am repeating myself time and time again when asked to explain who and what I am.

Today I present point-by-point answers to your questions. )

[ Filtered away from America, 100%. ]

Hello Wonderland, this is Will Graham. I'm really sorry for all this.

I just want to say I don't share any of these opinions. I only transcribed what America forced me to write. He's very friendly, and I like him, but I'd appreciate any advice on how to get him to leave. Please. I've been trying to get him to go for two hours.

I don't think I can listen to him recite the Declaration of Independence again. I'm pretty sure he's crazy. Please help. I'm running out of patriotic songs to distract him with.

At least he has a shirt on this time.

Uh --

[ He's not so blandly ignorant to claim he hasn't missed anything - not only does he not know how long he's been gone for, but he can also smell the sort of frustrated annoyance in the air, expelling off of... well, everyone. It's not very reassuring, definitely not putting his heart at ease for second about the well beings of his friends, and he shuffles a bit on the screen, leaning back and forth like this is the most uncomfortable thing he has to do. ]

... hi, Wonderland. [ nailed it. He offers a wave, goofy grin and all. Trying to be cool, even though he's pretty sure last time he was here, his mirror was getting cut in half, and he was clinging on Allison. Which means that if everyone's still around, they've probably been a little bit worried - or Scott thinks so, at least. Not the best position to be in. ] This is a little awkward. Um...

How is everyone?

[ can you feel him sparkling through the feed ]

I mean - is everyone okay? It doesn't take a genius to know something is off and... [ This is your stunning leader, Wonderland. Yeah he's trailing off, running a hand through his hair, eyes saying 'I've got nothing else' before he goes to fiddle around with the device.

I do believe the French have coined a phrase for it. Folie à plusieurs, madness, shared by many. It seems entirely improbable considering the circumstances where several of you have found their way to this establishment. [ He's glancing behind him, towards a towering window in a hallway he's found. ] As unlikely as it seems that so many of us share a delusion in which we've been abducted from a familiar place and set here, perhaps it's best to accept such a fact. The alternative... [ Being that they are here, that this is actually something that's happening. ] Is more so.

I would like to ask a question of those who have found their way to this mansion. Did you recall what happened when you lost sight of your own existence? Was there an event that triggered the occurrence? Perhaps a particular food that you've never tried before. [ He's determined to understand this, to analyze their surroundings and what they mean. Certainly there's a symbolism, a common ground that's caused them to find themselves here. ]

And speaking of food, is there a kitchen available? According to this leaflet I've found in my assigned room, there's apparently not a possible way out. I figure I would make the most of my time in a productive manner.

[ At first, the only thing visible on the feed is a book - or rather, lots of books, stacked in haphazard piles on one of the library tables. A few seem modern - soft-covered, mass-market - but most are old, manuscripts and scrolls and ancient hand-bound books lettered with gold leaf. More importantly, each and every one is holy.

It's every edition of the Word of God that Lucifer bothered to retrieve from the shelves, and no version has been spared. King James, Wycliffe, Luther, the Quran, the Tanakh, the Wessex Gospels... all accompanied, of course, by the garish, stock-model covers of the first several books of the Winchester Gospels.

(The Devil is nothing if not thorough.)

By the time the feed turns to Satan himself, though, it's pretty clear something else has captured his attention. Brow furrowed, he's flipping through something that greatly resembles a supernatural teen romance. (It may or may not be Twilight.) Whatever the book is, it's pretty clear that it's lowering Lucifer's already-dismal view on humanity. ]


I'm not sure if your fiction has gotten better-- [ He spares a short glance for all of the books laid out on the table. ] --or even worse.

YOU KNOW WHAT TODAY IS?

JULY FOURTH.

INDEPENDENCE DAY.

[ This isn't even text. The flickers of red white and blue are audible. It rings with freedom and inspires a certain kind of joy, like the kind that erupted when it was announced that Arrested Development was being brought back.

America steps back to reveal glory.

He's outside on the grounds. Everything that can possibly be associated with the 4th of July is there: burgers, hot dogs, apple pie, soda, ice cream, all sorts of glorious products and brands that aren't even around in the 1860s. Does that matter? Of course not. Today is a day when sense isn't even relevant.

The most indestructible car in existence has its bed full of fireworks, some that are probably illegal in most states. There's two cakes, one frosted like the Union flag and the other the Confederate, and both have sparklers stuck in them.

But most impressive is the absurd amount of booze. Seriously it's almost incomprehensible. It seems to stretch as far as the infinite fences and if you care to look out from a top floor or the roof, it's in the shape of the continental US. You should be terrified that he is setting off explosives this close to this much flammable liquid.

America lifts his arms as though to say behold my domain.
]

It's my birthday and everyone's invited! Even the Brits. Especially the Brits. I want ya to see how happy I am bein' independent.

Fireworks will happen soon as it's dark enough!

[ And if he's drunk enough he may or may not blow his hand off. He's already getting started on that btw. Join in the festivities, mingle, threadjack, do whatever you like DO WHATEVER YOU FUCKING LIKE TODAY IS A DAY OF FREEDOM. AMERICA WILL BE RIDING HIS DAMN DINOSAUR WAVING AN AMERICAN FLAG AS SOON AS THE FIREWORKS START YEAHHHHHHHHHH FOURTH OF JULY. ]

[The first thing Armin does is get to the roof of the mansion, because if there’s one place a soldier of the walls feels vulnerable, it’s on the ground. With the help of his 3 dimensional maneuver gear, it’s an easy task. Then he’s left to deal with the hard part of his current dilemma.]

[What the hell just happened?]


H-hello? Is this… Where…?

[He ventures the whole roof in search of comrades, because it’s the most obvious place of refuge in the area, but finds no-one. So he’s been separated somehow. From… where? It’s a little hard to remember, but they had just mounted their horses to set off for the giant forest to begin the operation to try and re-capture Eren.]

[There is a forest nearby, but definitely not the giant forest. In another direction, there are hills that seem to have a strange, checkerboard pattern to them. He could not account for the roof of whatever building he was currently standing on, which was so tall a 15 meter class Titan would have a hard time reaching over it. And then… Such a large expanse of water…]

[He’s seen many maps of the walls territory in his life—in fact he had to memorize them during his time as a cadet. Such an area certainly did not exist within them. So the only logical, yet absolutely absurd conclusion he could come to was that he was somehow outside of human territory.]

[Correct or not, he’s lucky there are no Titans around. But he has to get back in contact with his squad, or make it back to the wall, or… something… Or else he’ll most certainly end up dead.]

[He takes a deep breath.]


I-- I AM ARMIN ARLERT, OF THE SCOUTING LEGION, BELONGING TO THE 104TH TRAINEE’S SQUAD! I HAVE BEEN SEPARATED FROM MY COMRADES! IF THERE ARE ANY SOLDIERS OR CIVILIANS IN THE AREA, PLEASE RESPOND!

[His scream for help is so loud, a flock of birds flies out of a nearby tree with many an angry twitter. He then takes up some really annoying finger-whistling hoping his horse might still be around somewhere.]

but pristine shirts arranged neatly on clothes hangers? yeah, that didn't come up quite so much. or the shoes, particularly the ones Bobby just tripped over. he grunts, grabbing at a flannel shirt to keep his balance, only to have it snap off the hanger and send him barreling into the door, slamming it open as he lands in a heap on the ground, shirts following suit]


Balls!

[he's back on his feet instantly, hand instinctively reaching for the shotgun that isn't there while he surveys the room. if this is Hell, it's mighty tidy; and if it's Heaven, where are all the angels? the pearly gates, the welcoming party?]

What the hell? [he reaches up, fixing the trucker cap skewed from his fall, and straightens his shirt. he'll be damned if he's just going to sit here and wait for someone to find him. besides, he feels naked without a weapon, and he could really use a stiff drink, and neither of those was just gonna appear of their own free will]

[ooc: Bobby's landed in his own room on Floor Five, and he'll be stalking the halls of the mansion looking for guns/booze/whatever he thinks the afterlife offers. feel free to explain him a thing]

[Emma is a person who doesn't do well without something to occupy her, meaning that most of her time here in Wonderland between various disturbances has been spent restless. During the morning, she can be found in the library, perusing the shelves and occasionally sitting at one of the tables or near one of the windows to look through one of a number of books she's pulled from the stacks.

Mid-day and most of the afternoon, she'll be at the diner on the eighth floor, slowing working her way through a sandwich followed by alternating cups of hot cocoa and coffee with a notebook open in front of her. She goes back and forth between writing and reviewing what she's already written -- there's too much for it all to be from this particular afternoon, but at least three pages of it are fresh.

Late afternoon, she'll be out at the beach, standing out at the end of the dock before seating herself on the edge of it, frowning as she looks out at the water. It's not quite like where she and Henry used to spend their afternoons together back in Storybrooke, but for a quiet thinking spot, it will have to do.]

Can someone tell me which direction a large, metallic looking thing who is a big fan of Keanu Reeves is? Don't let the exterior fool you, he's super friendly. I need to talk to him; it's important. Like I've lost my ruby shoes and this isn't Oz, but, hey, there's a talking cat who knows how to work a phone kind of important.

I can handle red demons and blue demons and singing demons and spikey demons and, hell, vampires with souls! But talking cats?

[ is she freaking out? no way! (yes way.) cordelia can handle green, singing demons with hearts of gold, but talking cats? no way. no, no, no. she's wiggin' out right now. she has to go kick skip's ass for being a jerk and then make him send her on her merry way to becoming ... whatever it is she's meant to be now. ]

They're in her head, always there, won't get out. She's trying to smile but Sao Paolo keeps pressing into her mind and ripping it away, she didn't want it. Terrifying beasts in pits of fire, with wings and without. Why salt? Why iron?

[The video starts and oddly, James isn't in it. But that's a very nice view of the mansion grounds from the roof of the mansion, isn't it?

The camera shakes a bit, and then it shakes a lot as the image suddenly starts moving very quickly upward. And then, it takes a sharp nosedive. For the modern-day Muggles watching, it likely looks a lot like those videos of roller coasters taken from the front seat, except without the track to get in the way of the view.

There are a lot of whips and turns, and at one point the camera dips so close to the ocean that mist sprays up on it from the quick movement. Then it swiftly turns back towards land, rising up again. It really is a marvelous view.

But oh, all the quick turns have loosened the camera a bit. It starts to fall, but there are suddenly fingers in view - James seems to have caught it! Oh, but the sudden motion's made him lose his balance. He tries his absolute best to recover, but he was going too fast and now -

Well, now the view is very green, as he's managed to crash camera-first into the hedge maze. The camera gets caught on a branch and yanked from his hand, and there's a terrible view of James tumbling forward and out the other side, landing with a loud thud. He left behind a hold in the hedge, so when he gets up he can be easily seen (though he seems to be favoring one foot much more than the other as he stands).
