[ As he comes on-screen, Gabriel looks just as disheveled as anyone in this town who has been here awhile. He doesn't try to hide the scars the Noisy Black gave him- it'd be impossible anyway, considering the large horizontal one in the middle of his forehead. At least the color has faded. He's leaning up against some lockers, giving the camera a slight smile. Unfortunately, the lights keep flickering on and off, so occasionally the view of him drops out almost entirely as the tablet camera struggles to compensate. ]

Hi, everyone. This is Gabriel Gray, if you haven't met me yet. I've had a couple good ideas, so I thought I'd share 'em.

First, me and Flynn- at-Librarian- have a book exchange going. It's simple- I'm just taking pictures of the book I have, ten pages at a time, and sending them over. But it's getting me and him new material to read. I thought I'd offer it to whoever was interested. It's for a biology text called Activating Evolution, from my home world. But it's not porn or a self-help book, which are the only two things I've found here, so maybe someone would be interested, too. Let me know? And go ahead and list your books up in the comments if you want to try the same thing. People can sign up to get them, or something.

The other idea is more involved, but I'll handle organizing it. I want to make a database of a list of skills. It's important to keep our doctors up to date, of course, but- we've had a lot of different puzzles and challenges, so we should know who to contact if something specific pops up.

So, please- tell me what your personal skills are. Anything that we might be able to use to get further and/or get out of here. Do not tell me about powers you used to have that aren't active anymore. That's- [ He looks to the side for a moment, clearly thinking his phrasing over. ] Let's just leave what's outside this world there, for the moment. Okay?

I'm not going to put anyone up there who hasn't volunteered themselves, but I did put people who were already on the guide up. I feel like I'm missing some medical help, in particular. Could also use some people who know computer programming, or supernatural things. Hate to admit it, but we keep running into that crap.

Anyway, that's it. Let me know what I can add.

[ After he turns off the camera, he attaches a link to his newly-deemed Norfinbury Skills database. ]

[Dorian has his tablet set up on a pew to show him sitting where he's leaning against the altar in the chapel. He smiles in a friendly way and gives the tablet a little wave. His appearance shows signs of grooming and he's grown a small beard since he arrived.]

Manaveris! How is everyone? I am more alive than previously anticipated.

I'm afraid I don't know this building or the surroundings but I'm sure that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

But enough about me. How are the rest of you? Is there anyone nearby? This place is rather lonely.

    [network] @thebigc; text - Day 283  
    [ It isn't every day that a person comes back from the dead, at least not from Wilson's perspective. He was told this happens here, but there's a massive difference between having it explained to you that people return after death and experiencing it.

    He wants nothing more than to hide himself away for a few days until he gets his head back on straight, but he doesn't have the luxury of doing that. Unfortunately. Ever since waking up, he's had difficulty not feeling like he's being watched. He's been jumping at shadows a lot more than he normally does, and dealing with a constant need to watch his back is making him not want to turn his attention to the tablet. But, he needs to know what's happened, where specific people are, and what he's missed. So with that in mind, he reluctantly takes to the network.

    Text seems to be the easiest option here, for more than one reason, the first being that he can't hear. ]

    Hey. It's Wilson. Dr. James Wilson, if any of us haven't met yet.

    [ This place seems to have new arrivals show up fairly often, and he's not quite certain how long it's been since the last group came in. ]

    I'm going to venture a guess and say that I've missed a few things.

    [ He's glanced over his tablet, looking things over for the past several days, and it's all enough to make his head spin. ]

    Is everyone all right? I- All right, I don't really know how to process the whole die and revive thing that happens here, so I'm sorry about that.

    It's different when you're on the receiving end of it, and not just hearing an explanation about how it works. But I don't want to talk about me right now. How is everyone? How are you all holding up?

    Has anyone made any new discoveries or come across anything interesting?

    [ If he can steer conversations away from talking about himself, then great. If not, well, it's expected, even if it's not what he wants to talk about right now. ]
    The Cat sometimes known as Pounce

    [network] @Iwillnot; Origins [open] Night 282  
    [ Video ]

    [ The Cat has already been settled under a blanket, so the shorter hair where he was shaved isn't visible. His bright purple eyes are very visible, though, staring straight into the camera. There's a pendant around his neck as well, hanging from a gold chain. It appears to be a burning ember, encased in resin but still glowing lightly.

    There is no preamble, no explanation. ]

    In the beginning, there was chaos. The essence of violence, suffering, rage and hate, swirling together in the very anathema of life.

    But from the chaos arose two beings: Father Universe and Mother Flame. Together they tamed the chaos, shaped it to their own wills. From it Father Universe created the Earth, the seas, the forests and mountains, creatures both great and small. Mother Flame created the stars, the planets, comets and meteors and all that flies beyond the limits of the sky.

    They looked at what they had created and knew that it was too great to be governed by only the two of them. It deserved proper, dedicated care. And so they created the gods.

    First came great Mithros, and to him was given the sun, and justice, and the maintenance of order. And wise Mother Flame, understanding the shortcomings of her mate, saw that next came the Great Mother Goddess. She was given the moon, and magic, and the mysteries of life.

    They created the Black God of death, the Smith's God, the Dream King Gainel, and the Trickster. But still there was chaos, and it wanted a shape of its own. And so they created Uusoae. And Uusoae hated the Great Gods, and the Great Gods hated Uusoae. But Father Universe and Mother Flame understood this, and forbade absolutely that any of their children kill another.

    And so the universe is in balance. But Uusoae is chaos, and chaos is hunger. The Great Gods caged her long ago, at the beginning of things, and with their powers combined they have kept her at bay.

    But a day will come when Uusoae overcomes them, and breaks free of her prison. And when she does, she and her children will devour the world.

    As it began, so shall it end. And so it shall begin again, in time.

    It's activity check time! In order to pass activity check, you need twenty comments across a maximum of four threads during this month. You also need to have posted to this month's HMD, so if you haven't done that, go ahead and do that now! If you wish to take a strike, you have to reply; anyone who doesn't reply at all will be put on the warned list and, if they don't reply to that, then be swept. Anyone currently on an officially posted hiatus is exempt from replying.

    Additionally, some people will need to report their exposure effects. If you apped in during the most recent application cycle or presented us with an exposure effect last activity check, you do not have to do this. That's next month for you guys. And, of course, if your character's beacon is on, they're safe for a few months. To let us know about this, it has been included on the activity check form. If it's not relevant to you this month, you do not have to fill this section out.

    You have until 11:59PM EST on September 28 to reply to this; after this, a warned list will go up and anyone who is on that list will have until the end of the month to reply to that with either activity or a request for a strike.

    The following characters have outstanding strikes:
    ...None! Good job, guys!

    [network] @hexappeal; I promise to depart, just promise one thing... [open] [cw:murder/suicide]  
    Evening, Night 281

    89: A two-story A-frame house. The first floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, and two bedrooms. The second floor has a master bedroom, master bathroom, and balcony. The upstairs master bedroom has been mostly cleared of furniture, which is now scattered around the rest of the house. All that remains is the bed. Blood stains the bed and the corner of the room, and "sorry for the mess, but they won't take us this way" has been written on the wall in marker in that same corner. In low light, an adult's and child's shadowy forms stand silently in the corner and watch the movements of anyone in the room at the time. The pressure in this room is high and often causes general discomfort, nosebleeds, nausea, and ear popping; it's worse the closer to the shadow corner one gets. A bloodstained, rusty butcher's knife rests on the ground in the bloody corner, completely unusable at this point and wrapped up in fabric. "ALPHONSE ELRIC, STEPHANIE BROWN, FREYA CRESCENT, GREED, EDWARD ELRIC, BIFF, ANGEL, RHYS, ZELL DINCHT, DAY FIFTY-THREE, TRAVELLING SOUTH" is carved into the wall. Outside is a shallow, covered grave, perhaps three feet deep, in which the skeletons of an adult and child rest.

    [It's House's voice that comes through the tablet, but his accent and tone are markedly different. Rather than the harsh and sneering Jersey boy, there's something softer and he has a far more generic American accent with some vaguely French and Arabic inflections.]

    Captain's Log, Stardate 197005.3. I've escaped Sinai and crash-landed on a mysterious snow planet. There are monsters here according to the locals. And lots of dead bodies. I must have been captured when I crashed. I was in a body bag--it was pretty creepy, but cool! Maybe they thought I was dead. The Vulcan resurrection hypo must be doing its work... I'm really old for some reason, though. Could be a disguise.

    Trying to get in contact with Mo... with Lieutenant Blythe, but dialing her communicator isn't working. Suspect sub-spatial interference from the sinister General John and his entourage.

    Anyway, I found a graveyard outside the nearby chapel--What gods could these people worship? The Prime Directive forbids me from interfering, whatever it is, of course. They basically look like Christians, though, which is kind of boring. No. Delete that last sentence, computer. Their god's a giant cross. That's burning with light. It's probably symbolic of something. I'll have to find the nearest library and study up on their history.

    But first I'm doing some rubbings on the graves. The visible inscriptions have faded away, but I have some paper and crayons. I don't know what happened to my charcoal... but this works, too. I'll add to this log once I have more. Over and out!

    [log] A collision in the dark [closed, Rhys and Flynn at the museum]  
    The museum isn't exactly a refuge, but compared to slogging through snow, ice, and debris that will tear the hell out of both his jeans and the skin underneath at every turn, it's positively a vacation. It's even warm enough for him to open up his coat and let his clothes breathe a bit, drying any sweat that's gathered under the layers.

    Not that he's tempted to linger, though. He covers the length of the building with a brisk but careful stride, only slightly hampered by the bundles strapped to his back and the iron fireplace shovel held loose and easy in his hand as he walks. He's not a particularly big man, even bundled in layers of coats, but he moves with quick surety over the spots where the rubble has piled up.

    And as he walks, Rhys's pleasant tenor carries in the halls of the empty building, his only company on days of hikking:

    "I try, to close my eyes...but I cannot ignore the stimuli...and there's a purpose to us all that remains a secret, don't ask me to justify my life..."

    [As soon as they had noticed the first signs of something going wrong, their little group had scattered as effectively as possible to minimise the risk of anyone being hurt if they further lost control. Not that Sherlock has felt like he's losing control; in fact, he barely noticed a difference until near lunch time when his normally loquacious tongue only seemed capable of the most banal of statements.

    He's been practising to himself for nearly an hour before he finally turns to the network. He wants data, he wants to know who is suffering what, but mostly... he wants the reassurance that this is happening to other people as well. He doesn't want to be the only one, to watch the degeneration of his own mind is a horrific thing, but he can cope if he knows it's temporary. If he knows it's just one of the mind games this place is playing on all of them, not just... not his own brain betraying him.

    He chooses text partially because it's his preferred medium, but mostly because he wants to see if his language is any better written than it is spoken. The answer, fairly quickly, is evidently not.]

    Words bad.

    [Words bad? Words bad? That's truly atrocious. He concentrates hard, he wants to say: A deterioration of the ability to express myself through verbal and written communication has been observed, something which has declined rapidly within the span of only a few hours. Comparison with other residents who may be suffering the same degeneration may provide further insight. Respond below.

    What ends up coming over the network, however:]
