Do you suffer from depression?

[good afternoon from this world's resident redheaded Wizzard, who's sitting at an office desk and wearing a green uniform matched with a pointy red hat like that isn't a terrible fashion choice or general life decision. He's attempting to smile. It mostly looks queasy.

Anxiety? Do you have violent thoughts or tendencies? Trouble sleeping? Have you suffered traumatic events in your childhood and/or adulthood, culminating in what most would agree is a rather tragic backstory?

Then perhaps it's time you try - oh, hold on, I had something for this -

[Rincewind pats frantically at his pockets, then bends out of view. When he comes back up, it's to throw a handful of glitter, which shimmers down in a sparkling cloud around, in front of, and ultimately on him. This results in an immediate coughing spell and some swatting at the pieces in his beard.]

- Try - [cough, cough] - psychiatric help!

[cough, curse, gods damn it.]

Er, yes. Conveniently located in Maurtia Falls, Pennsylvania, the doctors at the Maurtia Falls Hos- um, the Maurtia Falls Psychiatric... [oh no. Oh no, what is it called? He works there, what is it called, he knows this! Rincewind's smile twitches, a bead of sweat glistening amidst the glitter on his forehead. He glances quickly to the prepared statement on his desk.]

- Maurtia Falls Psychiatric Hospital for Abnormal Conditions!


This advanced hospital is overseen by imPort psychiatrist Dr. Chilton himself, and is staffed with all sorts of talented individuals ready to assist in bringing out the best -[another glance at the paper, a small wince] - you. That you can be.

Whether you need medication, guided psychological interaction, or even just to talk to someone, therapy can work for you. And I can tell you, because I'm, ah, a success story. Myself.

[honestly, why did they leave that in the script.]

No matter the size your mental troubles, Dr. Chilton and the staff of the Maurtia Falls Psychiatric Hospital are here to help. Appointments can always be scheduled through the front desk, but if you've any questions - [please, oh please don't have questions] - I'm here to answer them as well.

[personal profile] devoutish posting in [community profile] maskormenace
[These days, when Alfie gets on the network to make a post - not just a comment, but a full post - it's generally because he's at least a little bit drunk. Today is no exception. He's also even more grumbly and mumbly than usual, and that combined with his thick accent means he's also probably even harder to understand than normal, so apologies for that, world.]

Twelve months I've been here, now; that's edging toward outlier status, isn't it? Mm, yeah. I've seen people come, I've seen people go, I've made a call to invite someone over for dinner during the holidays only to find out they've fucking vanished into thin air overnight.

[Pour one out for Dr. Eldarov. He grunts, irritably, and then abruptly changes the subject.]

Right - but I've decided to quit my job. Yeah, that's gonna be my gift to myself for my one-year anniversary, and for the new year; my people's new year. And as such, I'll be taking bets on how long it'll be before they notice.

[Because of course he's not just going to call up and let them know he's leaving. He's made a hobby out of being irritating at work, so why stop now?]

It was a weekly thing, my radio show, so I'll take guesses at one week, two weeks, three, and so on. Winner, I'll buy a drink; whatever you like. Unless you're a kid or something, I dunno; then I'll buy you a lolly. I'd suggest getting your bets in before Sir Robot makes headway on his surely-doomed plan to destroy the porter and fucks everything up for a bit. Shanah fucking Tovah.

Tell me of these holidays. Why are Men so fixated on them? I can understand the necessity for lifting spirits if that is indeed the reason for them. Living in these dreary cities has left me diminished.

[A dog appears on the camera. It's a fluffy white Samoyed, to be precise, looking happy as it usually does. A beat begins to play, and the dog appears to dance, flapping her ears to the music.

Or not. Doc pops up from behind her at the end, giving the pup a generous skritch. She wags her tail, making a familiar thump-thump against Doc's arm.]

That's my girl! Excellent work, Christmas.

[He finally addresses the camera himself with a sheepish smile and cough, still petting her.]

The moving process is nothing if not long and boring, and I thought we ought to have some fun. And while I'm on the subject---if any of you lack plans, I'll be hosting a barbecue next Saturday, from our new home on the outskirts of Heropa. I can assure you you'll be well fed. My partner's an excellent cook, and I'm not too terrible at side dishes if I may say so.

Hope to see you then!

[personal profile] ghoulking posting in [community profile] maskormenace
Thanks to a team of imPort scientists who took their time and resources to investigate and research imPocreats, we finally have some news regarding them. To those who aren't familiar, ImPocreats - also known as Impossible Creations - are a holographic-and-cyborg technology developed by OTO when it was still one of DARPA's branch.

OTO offered some to imPorts during a Swear-In, and even though we have learned OTO is trying to clone us, steal our powers, attack us and probably create some sort of genetic aberrations that might eventually try to kill us, some imPorts still kept those things around.
[ he is sort of judging you for that, to be honest. ] In any case, apart from the first imPocreats that some imPorts were willing to give us to study, we found mutated imPocreats during the Liechtenstein mission and also during the Heaven Scent raid which we took to study, and someone was able to retrieve an imPocreat that attacked Philadelphia during July last year.

Our team of scientists was able to conclude that the first imPocreats offered by OTO at the Swear-In were a prototype and they are seemingly harmless. For now. The mutated cyborgs were modified in several different ways, however. It was clear that OTO and Heaven Scent scientists were trying to give the cyborgs imPort powers, which didn't seem to quite work; they also tried to see how far the imPocreats' biology could be modified, like trying to create powers for them or trying to make them survive in surreal conditions.

For now, none of these experiments seem to have worked, but I think it's safe to say OTO will keep trying.

I am not a scientist so I can't give you more details, but the team of imPorts who worked on this are around the network and if they wish to make themselves known, they'll answer.

Hey friends, just a heads up that I'll be on hiatus for the rest of September. I have a wedding in the family and my load at work isn't going to be light for a while.

John will be on autopilot with godmod rights to the #DarknessNoParents gang, although honestly I'm flexible so if you need to handwave something with him feel free to ask me.

See y'all on the other side!

WHO: Wanda Maximoff & you!
WHERE: Various locations in various cities.
WHEN: Various dates; most a bit forward dated (this log is for any period of time between September 16th to September 30th).
WHAT: Wanda tried to tone down her own positive emotions. It worked too well and she accidentally 100% shut down all of her positive emotions, so in addition she also won't be feeling regret for any actions she takes, she'll be carefree in a disastrous way, she'll be quicker to snap, so on and so forth -- you get the idea. She's now more of a walking disaster than ever. (This will last for somewhere along the lines of the next six-ish weeks, when she will be sorted back out.)
WARNINGS: 'Wanda being uncharacteristically unpleasant' is a given considering her current mental state. That said, when/if anything super trigger-y comes up, I will make note of such in the appropriate subject line.

As my last chance to feel human begins to vaporize. Maybe it's the heat in here, maybe it's the pressure; you ought to head for the exits -- the sooner the better. )

Hello dears, I hope everyone is enjoying their day! I have an exciting thing to share on behalf of Ambassador Baelish and myself.

[ She looks brilliantly happy and equal parts proud; this has been an idea fostered for a little bit, but with all the back end hurdles cleared, Haen can hardly wait to reveal the plan. ]

Over the course of the next month or two, we are pleased to announce the beginning of a new community youth initiative for Maurtia Falls called the Endeavor Center, near downtown. Once the building is done being renovated, there will be space for creative arts, for performances, and for intramural teams. It's been Petyr's wish to bring a stronger sense of community to Maurtia Falls, not just for imPorts but everyone living there, and I'm pleased that I'll be coordinating things after the Center opens.

I don't have an exact date yet, but I hope many of you will come celebrate its grand opening~!

1. where do unsettled imPorts go to get their non-standard gear? trying search terms like "Big Al's Wild'N'Crazy Battle Boy Emporium" is bringing me to some cool sites (did you guys know there's a developing roomba ultimate fighting ring in MF?) but not the ones i'm actually looking for. thanks.

2. what would you do with your last day on whatever-non-specific-planet-or-plane-of-existence you came from? inquiring battle boys want to know, i guess.

Hello, Futuro!! My name's Styx and I'm a total newbie to your ranks, convinced to app by CERTAIN PEOPLE who know who they are ajodfjap. I've apped good ol' Akira Kurusu here, the protagonist of that most recent game about purse owners or something like that. He's a pretty quiet kid at first glance, but his supply of witty quips and sass is pretty endless. His do-gooder heart makes him a pretty good pick for ALASTAIR'S ranks honestly, and I'm super excited to be playing him here!

[This message shows up about an hour after their arrival in the Mothership. Keith has had it made clear to him that if he doesn't handle this appropriately, then some of the people who have volunteered will take care of it themselves. If there's any better reason to step up (to be the leader his team back home believes he can be), this is it. It's text because they can't risk being overheard.]

Hey. Some of you don't know what the taraxa are, or what that has to do with our mission. I thought I'd begin there, and then make it clear what we're doing here with that.

A year ago, we had a mission on Perdition's Rest. That's when our team first learned about Zymandis and their goals. They utilize taraxa agents. These agents are slugs that take over someone's mind against their will. The person loses themselves, but ALASTAIR has developed a means to get most of them back. The problem is that they're a part of a hive mind led by the Mother. They can communicate with each other so long as she's active.

That should make our goal here clear.

1. We need to identify the location of the Mother and take her out. This is a necessary casualty to save as many of the hosts' lives as we can.

2. We need to identify taraxa agents. Kal and Rhys both have means to scan for taraxa-affected brains. Work with them if you need someone confirmed. Once they're confirmed and the Mother is down, we put them to sleep until we can rift them back to Oska. We'll need to find a safe place to gather the bodies.

3. Once the Mother is identified, we take her out, and then we head for the rest of the taraxa agents.

We need to work quickly.

And I KNOW some of you will think we're better off killing the hosts than risking Oska, but that's stupid. They never asked for this! Plus, we put down a Zymandis force before. We'll do it again. So don't even try it. I already remember all that from last year. Trust me. I've heard it all before.

So, let's do this the right way this time.

[It wouldn't be Keith without the little bit of abrasiveness at the end.]

sup futuro! i'm caitlin, a total newbie here, and i'll be bringing in gamora from that corner of the mcu that's basically been doing its own wacky, rock and roll thing, aka the guardians of the galaxy films

gamora is a highly trained and lethal warrior and assassin, a former "adopted daughter" of thanos (in short, a genocidal tyrant and an all-around really bad dude) turned two-time galaxy-saver and weary space mom to a baby tree and crew of idiots. life's made her pretty tough, and she can appear harsh at times, but she has the biggest heart of anyone around, with a want to do everything she can to save lives. she'll be coming in after the fun (read: narrowly avoiding the destruction of the universe) times of guardians of the galaxy vol 2, which i know is still a fairly recent release, so if you want to avoid spoilers or anything like that, just let me know!

you can find me on plurk at [ profile] archetypes, or on discord at lensflares#3549, for plotting, shenanigans, whatever you'd like c: so excited to be here and play with you all!

Y'ALL. [The second y'all is for emphasis, of course.] Are we really letting this happen, now? It's not two months to Halloween, and Santa's already out.

I haven't even gotten anything pumpkin spice yet, this is rediculous.
