[You know what's really awesome? A massive clone crisis happening right as you're trying to move. George is exhausted and fed up, but there's been something on his mind, and he types out a brief message.]

what with all the crazy stuff that's gone down, i've been thinking about expanding the services the clinic provides.

show of hands, or just replies i guess - who would be interested in being trained in first aid and emergency field medicine? we need more people on the ground when things like this happen, caring for the casualties. native first responders are clearly overwhelmed, but if we can get some people out there who can deal with the danger and the injured, i think that would be a huge benefit.

I should really have posted a hiatus for the past two and a bit weeks but I kept hoping that I'd be able to post and ended up too exhausted to. I've been in the middle of moving house and setting up my own company and the stress has squished me into a pulp and left me unable to write. I'm really sorry to everyone I'm threading with for leaving posts hanging in the air :(

Things should be a little bit better over the next few days, so I'm going to do my utmost to get up to date and catch up with things. Again, really sorry everyone <3

Hello, Network. To those of you unlucky enough to have yet to make my acquaintance, I'm Cheryl Blossom.

I have a few questions as to the way the world works here--specifically as I've spoken to several who have claimed that those who are dead can come in as ImPorts. If anyone here comes from that particular experience, I'd be very interested in speaking to you. If not, I don't have the time for you.

Secondly, I'm incredibly invested in learning if it's possible to force someone to be Ported in. Someone who's dead back home.

Hypothetically, of course. :)

Also, feel free to follow me on all forms of social media, @CherylBombshell. You won't regret it.

Hey all!

I'll be on hiatus until the end of August. Summer holidays are coming which means even more workload for me, preparing for an upcoming con and a holiday for myself.

I apologise for dropping the ball on the clone plot, things have been chaotic IRL that I haven't been able to properly focus on RP. ;;

[ This video post is coming to you TUESDAY NIGHT, LIVE... from jail, not long after the Walking Eye invasion has made itself known. Womp womp. Rusty doesn't look entirely different in an orange uniform than he does in his usual hideous speedsuits, but the expression on his face is a sour one, even for him.

In the background, you can hear a robot wailing. It is a constant, static noise that only seems to increase in intensity as the feed goes on. ]

All right. Here's the skinny - these incompetents have decided to arrest me for all of that madness going on outside despite the fact that we're allllll well aware of the fact that there's a bunch of fucking clones running around. Which, for the record, is both an affront to us all and uncreative. They think I'm behind it all, but let me tell you this much: I don't shit where I eat, and I'm your best bet at programming something to stop them.

So, all you little heroes out there, a task for you: hunt down my clone and turn him in so I can get out and start fixing this mess!

[ God, the prison life is not for him. He's too pretty for this. The screaming, belonging to one Helper, begins to get even louder. ]

And for the love of God, someone, anyone come pick up Helper. [ He rubs at his temple. ] I've got a horrible migraine, and he's going to short-circuit any moment now. He's just outside of the jail. You can't miss him. [ Flatly, he adds on: ] He's the screaming robot.

Considering apping into MASK OR MENACE? Want to dip your toes into the setting and get a feel of whether your character will fit into it? Or maybe you're just cruising and want to play around? Then you've come to the right place!

Pick any of the following scenarios below or feel free to make up your own, but don't be afraid to throw yourself at someone else's thread, either!

And remember there's only one rule in Test Drive Meme Club: have fun!

    01. The city of Heropa is what one might expect from a small, bright and cheery place, where locals are friendly enough and local shop owners might offer a free drink to welcome you to their fair city. Some of the locals might thank you for always lending your service to the nation, while others might not say anything -- but if you have something nasty to say, better not say anything at all, right?

    They are, however, in the middle of something of a pickle. While Do-It-Yourself cloning kits produced by the all American (and currently under intense investigation) company Heaven Scent may sound like a bit of harmless fun, it turns out there can be some negative side effects when they’re handed out to random members of the public. Who knew? Apparently a kit or two fell into native hands and, long story short, some teens took them to the local petting zoo. And now the sheepening has begun. Masses of poorly cloned, family friendly animals have over taken the Laying of Hands On Zoo therapeutic petting zoo. Worse, these seemingly unending masses of clever charmers have chewed their way out of most pens and taken to the streets. With absolutely no fear of humans, sheep are consuming every bit of vegetation in sight, goats are climbing fire escapes and into dumpsters, tiny horses are clogging the streets and confounding traffic cops, llamas are surrounding people in the street to eat their food, and the capybaras have taken over every body of water they can get access to, from local swimming pools to lawn sprinklers. Given the heat wave is still in full swing, none of this is helping the general mood of a local people that are now wary of going into pools, stuck in traffic jams, and having their ice cream consumed by belligerent alpacas in the street.

    These creatures have one weakness, though: tipping. It’s not just for cows anymore. Thanks to the cloning kits being used waaay past their suggested limits, the clone qualities have really just gone downhill. Give a hard enough shove to make them fall onto their side and the animals will start disintegrating. Right there. In front of all those screaming kids. Maybe just herding them away or using some porter given powers will cause less emotional scarring to the local population? It’s up to you how to proceed, hero. But while doing nothing is an option, beware of roving petting zoo animals coming for that free drink in your hand or into the nice air conditioned resting spot you’ve set up in no matter how much you want to avoid getting involved.

    02. De Chima, Virginia, is a large city with a healthy economy, and though it's quieter than Heropa, there are still large numbers of citizens to be awed at your very presence. Look at you! Organic wonder! Science and technology are the lifeblood of this city, so you're likely to come across a good many locals taking your picture with the newest of devices. The imPort craze remains high here, and you may find yourself cornered by overzealous imPort fans, media wannabes and opportunists alike, shoving cameras in your face. Their questions are likely to be fairly mundane, however; get ready for an interview about your taste in romantic partners, personal underwear choices, favorite foods, and more!

    Believe it or not, there have been some recent…difficulties between the locals and the imPort community this month. Zombies roaming the streets, fires, yet another political campaign the American public was forced to listen to non-stop radio commentary about. But in typical American spirit, there is one surefire cure to times of trouble: merchandising and public service announcements. There are Let The Dead Die wrist bracelets, Only You! Can Prevent Swear-In Fires posters, and glitter-covered ribbon pins, stickers, and car magnets supporting…well it’s not terribly clear? Supporting not-terrible things happening seems to be the general gist. But most importantly, they’re all locally produced and for sale. Don’t you want to support your local community? The mobs of sales people certainly think you do. In fact, any imPort spotted not wearing some kind of patriotic flair will be alternatively pressured to get some and treated with hostility anywhere and everywhere they go. Even the mugger you may stop in a daily good deed will throw shade at your unpatriotic butt.

    Alternatively, those wearing (out of genuine support or just to make the peer pressure stop) any pins, stickers, wrist bands, or what have you will face the challenge of local news crews asking you to do a quick PSA for the people. What advice do you have to give? Remember this is live TV, so try to make it good. Or, for the more morally ambiguous, as terrible as you can. Remember kids: Inky the imPort says it’s not breaking the law if you get away with it!

    03. Maurtia Falls, Pennsylvania has had its ups and downs since imPorts started reappearing. Several imPort heroes have put focused efforts into cleaning up the streets of this somewhat infamous city, while others have swooped in to help the criminal industry thrive. More so here than the streets of any other imPort city, the battle between good and evil looks more like a war of escalation than a heroic tale. That might make the less than warm welcome imPorts are given in the city a little more understandable. The emergence of locals with superpowers is hardly helping. While some of these individuals have turned to crime, many locals seem more inclined to defend their native powered drug dealer than help the non-native hero bring them to justice. Who are you to tell them how to live?

    Despite the shady reputation, this still is a city filled with families and local pride. Today is a family festival in the park! Come eat cheap (possibly not FDA inspected) food, from deep fried anything-that-will-fit-in-the-fryer, to cotton candy, to turkey legs, to you get the general idea. Or join in the numerous competitions happening, such as the egg toss, scavenger hunt, potato sack race or the semi-voluntary three legged race. What makes it semi-voluntary? Well, there’s a not-so-small registration free to participate, so some of them more non-scrupulous (and according to rumors, mob backed) ‘event coordinators’ have simply started chaining random people together when they’re not looking, then refusing to open the locks until the fee is paid. Actually participating in the race after payment is rendered is entirely optional, but if you want a chance to re-coup your losses by winning the first place cash prize you may want to give it a go. Weirdly, these cuffs seem to be enhanced somehow. Blame Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, or the fifty other technological genius imPorts that have arrived in the past few years, but these cuffs are immune to porter-given powers and lock picking. If you want out, you’ve got to pay. Or beat the guy up and face possible retaliation from local organized crime. Your fate is in your hands.

    For those that aren’t there for food and managed to escape the competitions, there’s still a few side activities. No Maurtia Falls event would be complete without a good bit of under the table gambling. Whether you want to run a betting pool yourself or throw down some cash on which kid will hop the fastest in a potato sack, the good people of the Falls are there for you. And offering 10:1 odds on the kid in glasses.

    04. Nonah, North Carolina, is the liveliest of all cities; loud, busy and there's some kind of energy in the air that gets everyone buzzing with excitement. To be American is to be part of a melting pot, and that there's more money to be made by the thriving local industries hardly hurts. Natives may gather around new arrivals and ask both personal and broad questions about life as an imPort, what they are looking forward to, what their favorite article of underwear is. A few night clubs offer free entrance - just this once!

    Of all the cities, imPort fever is always the hottest and most reliable in Nonah. Sure there's been some recent troubles, but you can’t build anything new without a few stumbling blocks along the way, right? To show their dedication to making the local-imPort community really work, Nonah has started a Follow An ImPort to Work day initiative. Whatever government assigned job you have there is, suddenly, a child there shadowing you. Well, by suddenly we mean their parents appeared, gave a whirlwind of instructions, pat their kid on the head, and then left them in your tender care. For an entirely unspecified number of hours. Could be you got a surly teenager or a fanboy tween or a gurgling baby that has no idea what’s going on. Whatever age, the government was kind enough to have automatically registered you for the event, free of charge! Or warning.

    Maybe you’ll make the best of it and teach the kid a thing or two. Maybe you’ll find some unsuspecting imPort visiting from another city to hand the kid off to. Maybe you’ll realize that absolutely no background checks have been run and small children are probably, entirely unsupervised, following around criminal masterminds or serial killers at this very moment. Maybe you and your new sidekick should do something about that, or at least check to make sure the fellow imPorts you see with a kid in tow are on the up and up. The future of the next generation is in your hands.

milli point two just to hurt you.

Lucifer is gone. He's left this universe to seek the next adventure, among other things.

[A sigh, albeit a quiet one. As rude as Lucifer often was, she couldn't help but feel the loss of him. She gets the feeling she's not the only one.]

Revīvēscere is staying, and Lucifer has entrusted it to me. I will look after it to the best of my abilities, as its new proprietor.

[It's a bit of a promise, really - not that he'd be anything but slightly amused at that. But, sod it, it's what she's going to do nonetheless.]

Do feel free to stop by for a drink or two - and please, be patient while I get settled into my new role.

Alright, so... second powerful blonde down for the count. This one I hate dropping, because I've had some really great CR with him so far, and I've really enjoyed his voice. That voice, however, requires a lot of mental energy, and without the proper motivation I just don't know if I have the willpower to keep playing him. Taking him from the end of Carey's run, he's already achieved his ultimate goal, and having him just kind of sit around and do nothing is only interesting for so long. I did love playing with Pana and the rest of the That's So Raven cast, Feather's Cinders, the terrible Hell children, and everyone else who tagged into his threads.

Hi MoM!

Those of you who have me on plurk might have caught sight of a couple of recent plurks regarding MK and app building! She's been working on an app for the past couple months, and I figure I should start putting together some details, but! I need volunteers.

What MK is building is an ImPort Dating Sim, so natives can ~~~live the import experience~~~ (obviously imports will be free to play it as well, so long as they're ready to buy the game) and play date storylines with some of their faves. These will be very obviously ripped off of ImPorts, and that's where you come in!

Right now this is more of an interest check, but in a few days I'll get in touch with the people who have gotten replied with a little form to fill in.

So!!! if you have a character you'd like to be blatantly ripped off for a dating sim, please reply here!

There are only three requirements:
- not a Tatiana Maslany
- characters must be over 18
- someone she could have some familiarity with either by reputation/minority reports/network activity

This is something MK would totally do without permission ICly, but OOCly I'll give a lot of control to the players in terms of what the app includes in their rip off of their character, and obvs the content itself would be handwaved. Depending on interest, I was thinking a few characters would be the basic game romances, and then others can be purchased with expansions and such. (Sidenote: the ic content would be pretty PG-13, but definitely over the top romance shenanigans. How native fandom responds I leave entirely in your hands.)

Basically: help MK anonymously make money and let's make characters suffer B)

[There is a level of determination in him that hadn't existed during the election. Seeking a city position or power of any kind didn't sit well with him, but helping others was in his nature. Maybe not in this form, but it was more natural than the other.

He was at the edge of the De Chima forest preserve, seated in front of a farm house. For those that have been there, it's Lucy Pevensie's, now empty and quiet.]

With the election over, it's time to focus on the rest of the citizens and imPorts that are in need of help. There is a farmhouse that was used to house a number of residents, now abandoned. My sister, Sansa Stark and I have decided to purchase the home and convert it into a shelter for the homeless. It will have a vegetable garden and offer training for various skills that will help them find jobs, eventually allowing them to move into their own homes.

All of this is dependent on the good will of the citizens. We will be in need of donations, both monetary and supplies. We will also need those with construction skills to help us renovate and refurbish the farm house. You will be compensated.

My sister and I will answer any questions you might have. Thank you.

By now, it's well-known we have a clone problem. I'm fairly certain that mine is responsible for at least two deaths in Heropa. From what I've managed to hear, it's become more aggressive and outspoken about imPort and non-human superiority, to the point of trying to start fights.

[And he is clearly not pleased with this.]

I need information on its location, and I need to issue a warning to anyone that may encounter it. If you find it absolutely necessary, I cannot stress enough killing from a distance of at least ten feet in a non-populated area. Draconians of my particular type explode when we die.

The good news is, its untrained in both combat and magic, making it much less of a threat than it could have been.

Regardless, I would prefer taking care of this situation on my own. Prevent it from harming others if you can, but leave the clone to me.
