[OOC: backdated to a few days after the beginning of Lotus Liminal while Jean is still sleeping but just before his dreamspace happens.]

So, anyone know why someone just keeps on sleeping like he might just --- sleep through the whole Liminal time if this continues? Or any ideas how to wake him up? Besides waiting, I'm doing plenty of waiting already and sure, it's most likely waiting for something to happen but... Oh, I guess also ideas of what to do while I'm waiting.

[Not that she's keeping an eye on him 24/7, no she can come up with things to do on her own! ...But guess who is bored of waiting even when she's not that impatient these days?? So, what's this? Pretend like she doesn't already know that it's about waiting and have fun with the entertaining ideas? Something like that, maybe.]

I think my envy of Jean's sleeping skills is gone by now and no, he hasn't even been anywhere near the marshmallows and he's nowhere near them now either.

Hello, fellow Travelers. For once, I am not addressing everyone in regards to an entertainment of some sort.

Gentlemen, and those without a female reproductive system, you might want to tune me out from here on. Ladies, and anyone with a female reproductive system, I have something for you.

A few Liminal Spaces back, I realized that no one here has made any sort of contraceptives for those who might wish to engage in activities that would result in unfortunate consequences.

[For all that she adored Christina eventually... it was an unfortunate consequence.]

I have made a liquid that will halt conception for three months. It is completely reversible if you ever wish to bear a child, but it will prevent both pregnancy and menstruation.

For those who live in an earlier age and do not understand, I am happy to talk you through what goes on, and what my concoction does.

If you would like some, please, by all means, come to my rooms. My door is always open, and I will not ask any questions of you.

Ah, well. I guess this is how to make this thing work. Odd, but useful.

In any case, my name is Naoya. I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to introduce myself, but there you are. I'm guessing that there won't be a lot of time on these 'Jaunts' for the meet and greet - not if we're intended to go solve some problem or another.

I do have some questions, however. First of all, is there a spare computer or a way to acquire one on one of these Jaunts? I deal with computers as part of my work, so it's a little strange not having them around. Secondly, is there anywhere I can plug in an electronic device? And possibly find some spare cords I can rewire... I'm not exactly counting on the voltage to be the same.

... And thirdly, does anyone have access to a dark room or possibly some ice that is not ice cream? This place is already giving me a headache, and I suspect it's only going to get worse.

[ This thing is brought to you from Jean and Korra's room. Weirdly enough she's standing in the middle-ish of the room instead of sitting somewhere.]

... Is it new arrivals time? Or did we just get a nice, new Liminal Space, that I honestly wasn't expecting to be like this for... whatever reason they might have for giving us this? Not that new arrivals always get nice things.

[ No really, is this supposed to say what the next jaunt is going to be like? Because Korra is one of those people, who totally expect it to be something bad after fun trip to America. Not that this would the first time when Liminal time is a space or more longer than usual but maybe it's not. Huh, guess it's just a thing to find out eventually. Unless the horrible thing about next location is that it might be Empress vs. Emperor, because that'd be heartbreaking. Okay, time to get to the real point of this post...! ]

That's surprisingly not what I came here to talk about! [But it can be talked about here too, while she lets those thoughts slip on this too. Anyway, Korra grins.] Hi, if you are new here or if we haven't met before even if you're not new, my name's Korra. So, I probably should have done one of these sooner and maybe I should make these once in a while to let all of you know about my best non-human friend from home, who has been here for a while now...

[you know, because that'd probably be good unless she always has time to go around Liminal... And whatever Korra is about to say next, it gets interrupted by this on screen for everyone to see. One moment later she's holding the dog's face next to hers and the dog is also looking at Jean anyone watching this with a friendly, curious look on her face.]

Naga is a polar bear dog -- yes, that is its own species back in my home world, where most species seem to be a combination of two -- but despite her looks, she is the most friendly polar bear dog ever. If you happen to run into her, she loves cuddling, petting, scratching, all kind of cute physical affection that --

[She is getting interrupted by Naga again when the dog suddenly licks her face before backing off ... Korra is not even trying to stop her, when Naga suddenly jumps on two paws and tackles the girl to the floor.]

Obviously means things like kissing, hugging and tackling too. So yeah, real danger here. ...No but seriously, if she is walking around without me because that happens sometimes, she certainly won't mind if you want to pet her. Aaaaand we offer polar bear dog rides and sledding too whenever there's enough space for those. Or you know, if anyone there, new or not, wants to see us less accidentally, that can be easily arranged too.

[This is getting kind of long and what else should she say? Anyone can ask anything about the dog once this is done anyway, so... Korra gives her dog a kiss and then seems to be whispering something to her. Naga looks at her, cuddles a little more and then her attention suddenly goes to Jean. Or their audience, they are still here and anyone can see the dog suddenly rushing to kiss his face too. Because of course it ends like that when they're doing this.]

[ part two ]
[ . . . . Except they return later with a small, fluffy puppy on the screen, who looks very happy and excited while Korra is laughing way too much right now.]

Or she could eat so much ice cream, that somehow she ended up being really small for now. I guess she can stay this way until this change lasts and I'll just try to keep in mind that she's not very easy to find whenever she goes somewhere right now. ...So, if you see this puppy around? Still her, still seems to be herself too except the size.

Well what do you know, I'm back again. [At least the network seemed to be working like always. How he missed the strange voices inside his head.... except not really. He heard those enough when he got drunk enough.]

I'm Qrow. I was around for Moebius, but then the lovely hosts stuck me in a dungeon. I've heard it's been a pretty long while since then. Anyone care to fill me in on the most important blanks? If you're not comfortable in talking over here, we can always meet up.

[He pauses, before adding the most important thing he had in mind for this network call out.]

Most important one of them being my pocket flask. I need a damn drink.

Hey folks, Ambrose here. I know the other day Elphaba was asking after magic users to learn stuff from, but I was wondering... does anyone else want to learn magic? Who's willing to teach it? Maybe we should get together and do a big ol'... workshop? Exhibition? One of those things.

[ look he's been in the champagne a bit, it happens. ]

Basically everyone who is okay with teaching their particular stripe of magic can show what it's capable of, and anyone who wants to learn can shop around. We did this once a while ago, sorta, but I think it's time we do it again.

What the shit was that!? I know we end up in overlays that have a lot in common with us, but that was too close! The asshole that double-crossed my overlay and his band-mates was too much like that backstabbing bastard Reiner! The people he ran off with were just like the other two traitors we had to deal with back at the Walls too!

And why was our band named Basement Dilemma!? Basement Dilemma! Is what my old man did going to start messing with me even when I'm Infiltrating now!?

Has anyone had an overlay's life be that close to their own before!? That was exactly the life I probably would've had if I was born into a normal world instead of that Titan-infested hellhole of a cage!

I've never done this before, but there's a first time for everything.

It's about time to do a check-in to see who are investigating - or at least have an infiltrator persona. My name is Jean Kirstein and... I don't investigate very often.

Apparently, I arrived with an ID that says I'm 21. So I guess age up, or down, is normal in this Jaunt. I also got a surprise guitar and seem to know how to play it...? Anyone else had something like that happen to them?

I won't ask if anyone has an idea of what we're supposed to do, since it's so early on the Jaunt... but it's good to keep your eyes open for any information that seems important.

[This post is actually filtered away from Baby Rose, but everyone else gets to listen to a very, very flustered voice from Jean.]

This is a kidnapping! I don't care what others say, this is a kidnapping case! I can't do anything in this situation. I haven't felt so helpless and embarrassed in a while...

Korra, help. If there's someone she'll listen to, it's you.

[Instead of his feelings coming across actual state of panic of getting kidnapped, it's more flustered embarrassment for being put into a situation like this. So nothing really dangerous. Carry on.

Brought to you by Naga carrying around Jean like a puppy.]

Okay. Uh. Wow. I did not expect to be Investigating as a mermaid. Selkie. Finvestigating. You know.

I also did not expect to get all kinds of shiny mermaid knowledge dumped in my head the moment I ended up in the water, but that seems to have happened anyway. So if anyone wants to know anything about that shit, please do ask me. The most important thing is that the Thalassian Mermaid Queen, the Dread Empress or whatever, is as scary as fuck and our cover story should probably be that we ran away from her empire because we didn’t want to become cannibal berserkers. Which are a thing. Oh my god.

Anyway, it looks like we’re in the world with the Labyrinthine Shoals? Like, that’s evidently where we are. We’re in the Shoals. And I guess we’re mermaids? Some of us? Can anyone chime in to tell me if there’s anyone around who’s not a mermaid.

Actually, maybe we should make this a general check-in with, like, name and species. I’ll go first: this is Thorne and it looks like I’m a California sea lion selkie.

[It's obvious the message is supposed to be on a private channel, but this time Jean is too panicked to actually focus on something like that. He will feel bad for pulling a Jules later.]

Eren! I found Mikasa. Well sort of she's--

[There's a very abrupt pause in his words before he continues with a faster, much more panicked speed.]

Help, I think she's about to- I think she's...

[ooc: what is going on, but your character is free to guess what it is that Mikasa's doing.]

[personal profile] goestoextremes
So uh. Hi. [How do you start a post here? Weird, especially without any telepathic skills, that many others seem to have. ]

I'm Korra... I've been on this jaunt since the beginning, but I was busy during the check-in post... Anyway, this is my second jaunt, Rome was the first and I arrived during the cruiser liminal from a world, where we also have our own version of Spirit World and elementalism and empowered alike skills, that we call bending back there. No idea if it's normal for a world to remind someone so much of their home, but this one sure does in some ways...

[ Spirit World, spirits, mercury, superpowers. ...the list could go on and on. At least she doesn't need to hide her skills here like had to back in Rome. ]

But that's enough about me for the moment. I'm actually here for something that's actually important... [ So don't push your imaginary MUTE buttons yet, even if that first part's just her rambling! ]

If you run into Jean -- light-brown eyes, brown hair with darker hue on the back and sides, average height of 175cm or 5'9" whichever makes more sense to you, long face, wears black clothes with lots of pockets and stuff this jaunt... [ Seriously, if any of you can share a picture somehow, please do! ]

His infiltrator name is John King, he is a Manticore Squire as far as I know from our first day here... His empowered ability is manipulating mercury / quicksilver. Now, I'm talking from experience, when I say this; that stuff can be seriously really horrible for health.

So...! If you happen to fight against him while they are chasing people there, or whatever, but if he gets that liquid metal anywhere on your skin or body? You should tell me and I'll make sure you stay healthy! Unless you can heal yourself or know other healers, of course, but for those of you, who don't... I can check if there's any of it in your body and metalbend it out of you. It doesn't hurt, it requires no touching and I swear it's a lot better than chances of walking around with even a little pieces of that metal in your body.

Ohh, and my waterbending has healing abilities if anyone needs those for any injuries, that you might get here or wherever we go while I'm myself.

When Feliciano realizes where he is, his first reaction is shock. The second reaction is an ache in his heart, and the third reaction is to burst into tears.

And his sobbing echoes throughout the network in his relief.

Rome...! We're in Naples, we're in the Imperium Romanum...! This is my grandfather's house, this is my childhood home-

He takes a while to compose himself, but soon continues speaking.

Leonardo has already offered his help, but I can be useful too...! I lived through this, I remember all of it, all of these places- I remember everything! My grandfather taught me so much, and I never forgot. If anyone needs help navigating the land or the culture, please, feel free to ask me.

I'll be going by the name Felix Romulus Valeria, if anyone needs to find me. It was the name I went by back then.
howexciting: (Omfg)

[The first part of Leonardo's broadcast seems to be a misfire, in only that it is quiet and almost disbelieving.]

Non è possible... this is... home? Italia...?

We are in the Kingdom of Naples... no, that is back in my time, this is Campania felix... Dio mio, we're in Stabiae--

[There is silence for a good fifteen minutes, as Leonardo prepares and questions the populace. Then, he finally comes on the Network.]

For anyone who is listening, I have some good news. And some bad news. The good news is that I have located our exact location in space and time. We are in Stabiae, an ancient Roman resort which Pliny the Elder described in detail in his records. The year, at least according to the gossip of Emperor Nero's daughter, Claudia Augusta, and her recent death, and the recent appointment of Titus Vespasian as the governor of Africa Proconsularis, indicate that this is the Year of Our Lord 63.

The bad news is that in sixteen years, this place will be completely destroyed with ash, much like the city just five miles north of here, Pompeii. In fact this entire region will be flooded with molten earth and ash, and be consumed entirely. Further, Emperor Nero is on the throne, according to The Natural History, as written by Pliny the Elder... and I am sure you have heard of the stories of Emperor Nero.

I will be referring to myself during this Jaunt as Leontius Florentinus Vincio. Just Leontius will do, if you see me, but it is the best translation of my name I could come up with on short notice. If you require names to blend in, please, let me know and I will do my best to translate... or transliterate your names, should it be impossible. They usually come in three names, though sometimes two in women's cases, that being her name and the name of her husband. But it can be more or less depending on one's epic deeds or acts of heroism, or simply their fame throughout the Empire.

Further, a few points of advice on etiquette. Men are expected to wear togas. [He briefly livestreams a picture of himself in a toga and traditional sandals.] Ladies, do not wear a toga, like the men, unless you would like to be mistaken for a prostitute. Instead, find or make a stola. [He briefly livestreams a random gaggle of women walking past, each one wearing pretty stolas and giggling amongst themselves.]

Secondly, if you are to claim family ties, keep in mind which one is the eldest male in your "family". If you are a father, grandfather, or sometimes an elder brother or elder cousin - you are in charge, and you are expected to be obeyed no matter what. Younger brothers might or might not, depending upon the will of the deceased father, but... it is best if you choose your family ties wisely. If you argue in public, people will grow suspicious, or they will believe you are uncivilized and will try not to speak to you. Obviously, this would be difficult to further our investigation.

It is probably best to claim that you are from distant parts of the Empire if your native homeland is from outside Ancient Rome's bounds. Perhaps you can claim you are traders from distant lands, but you will not be treated as Roman citizens, that way. Many of the outer provinces were treated lesser than the inner provinces. Still, it is worth a try, to maintain appearances and keep our illusion going.

If you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to ask me, but try not to come to me in person. I wish to remain as inconspicuous as possible.
