[On screen is Danny, shoulders squared and looking ready to make a huge announcement. Mostly because he is. He takes a breath.]

I...haven't been honest with you all. Not for a long time. The truth is, I've been keeping a lot of secrets.

I like to act like everything is all okay, but it's really not. I just act like it because I hope that if I pretend like I'm fine, then it means eventually I will be. Or even if I'm not, then at least I try to keep it to myself to keep others from worrying about me. Because that's supposed to be my duty as a "hero."

[Yes, Danny does actually use fingerquotes when he says the word hero. If you listen closely, you might also detect some annoyance in his tone.]

That's why I went missing for over a month without telling anyone except for leaving some notes behind, and why I act like I'm just some regular happy teenager who doesn't worry about--

[Danny turns to the left and leans warily but doesn't stop talking. His volume grows gradually until it's a full-blown scream while he braces himself.]

--about his whole family being dead, or about being homeless, or turning into a huge scary evil monster of destruction, or all the people he's ACCIDENTALLY KILLED, OR THE FACT THAT HE'S BEEN CLO--oof!

[Another Danny dives across the screen from the left and full-on tackles the first Danny. The camera shakes and lands on the floor, revealing one Danny pinning the other to the floor in Danny's now dusty and furnitureless old bedroom. The post ends abruptly.]

She wears something quite unlike Lily as well - a form fitting black dress. Where has she gotten everything for this, much less the computer she's speaking from? Well, it may just so happen that she has a means of easily swiping stuff from places without anyone being any the wiser.]

Oooooh, there we go. Hello~ It's been a few days.

Aren't all of you miserable fucking losers just the cutest. You know what I'm tired of? Being one of those losers.

Scrambling around the globe for a bunch of ungrateful, snot nosed little brats... and for what? Just what has any of that gotten me, gotten any of us?!

I'm done with that bullshit. We have all of this power, and we just cower in the shadows!

[Her smirk turns sadistic, and she flashes her teeth.] It's high time we did something much, much more fun with our power...

What do you say~?

[OOC: Needless to say, this is Doppelganger Lily, who does not yet realize she isn't as such, especially since Lily herself hasn't posted to the Network since the Lapland rescue, since the doubles do not initially realize they're copies. As per the Plot Post, her Number is indistinguishable from Lily's own.

[Lily looks... disturbed, to say the absolute least.]

So, the "Numbered Special Commissioned Group" contacted us today, and we've got a... potential problem.

We know that there have been lights appearing over multiple new locations lately. One of them was Lapland, which Winter and I briefly visited around Christmas. [It was cold.]

Nothing much seemed out of the ordinary then, but now? Now we've got a problem.

Since around the time of the lights appearing, children from Lapland and the surrounding area have started to disappear. There's no ransom, and no clue why. However... two preschoolers who were hidden away at the time were able to tell the authorities something: They saw an old man with a beard they're saying looked like Santa Claus, and his helper, was...

[She purses her lips.] Ever seen "How The Grinch Stole Christmas?" Him.

[She shrugs; they've encountered weirder, right? But she still looks immensely bothered. The involvement of children is assuredly doing that.]

Here's where we come in: They want our help. Numbered help. This is clearly connected to us in some way, and those of us with the NSCG have at least proven cooperative, so I guess that helps. We're to be there by the 13th, in Rovaniemi, and they'll take us upstate from there to begin searching and investigation. We're told to bring friends, so...

Please. Come with us. Help us. If we can save those kids... [Or even if they can't, and they can just discover the cause, which makes her shudder.] We've got to do whatever we can. We have the power to, right? We have to do something.

[Stefan's sitting on the floor of the local library this time, his cell phone positioned so the feed shows him and the mug of tea he's been holding in his hands. If he looks weary, it's because he is.]

Has anyone else been teleporting to weird places lately? I'm not talking about the teleporter, even if that's still pretty surreal. [He pauses for a second, trying to figure out how to best say this...] I don't know if this was a side effect of coming back from Boston, or just our Echoes acting up, but I really hadn't planned on ending up here.

I mean, the library's great, but I think they've locked me in for the night.

[The feed hastily switches over, revealing that Stefan isn't alone - there's a brunette, roughly sixteen years old, sitting beside him with her own mug of tea. She hastily waves at the camera too.] Hey, they've locked me in too! Steffie, don't forget to mention you're not alone here.

[Stefan can't help rolling his eyes as he brings the camera back towards him.] Right, sorry. Is... anyone good with picking locks? Because we're kind of at a loss here.

Network! Happy holidays, or if you don't celebrate 'em, I hope your winter's going well. A few things.

First, how many of us are living in the Germany-Austria area? Or visiting very regularly? Are here for more than a day in a given week, like.

Second, the mayor of Fussen talked to me about rumors of ghosts in that one castle you can see not far from the teleporting site, Neuschwanstein. She wants some Numbered to look into it, and good news is she's willing to pay. I don't know if these are the same as the Locke ghosts or more dangerous, but we really should check it out.

Finally, if you don't mind: what is the most pointless, silly pulse you've ever had? I thought bonfire cult rites was mine, but then it turned into how my feathers smell when they're burning.

Hello, everyone. By now, you're all more than likely aware of what's happening in Locke. Suffice it to say, it's pretty obvious certain parties are attempting to fill the void left by Albero. Others I'm certain are opportunists.

I'm certain at least some of you would like to see something done. I don't think going for those vying for power is the answer at the moment, as certain powers will likely assume we are attempting to carve out a piece for ourselves. Rather, I think it best that anyone out there handle this on a case by case basis, and focus on protecting civilians. In most cases, it would be better to escape to safety; discretion being the better part of valor, as it were.

Remember, they're either those who want to replace Albero, or they're simply looters and thugs who were waiting for an excuse. If anyone would like to coordinate anything, I would be willing to assist.

The apartment isn't too far from Locke University. If you're interested, please contact me over the network.

[He releases a sigh before it turns in to a weak chuckle. With everything that went down recently, he felt mentally exhausted. A concerned meow is heard in the background.]

...Maybe this is the lack of sleep talking, but does anyone else worry about suddenly loosing their 'pulses' and returning back to normal? I didn't think much of it at first, especially after I lost recollection of this whole thing about a year ago. Now? There's a good chance I might die from the injuries I've sustained or collapse from exhaustion.

Who: Everyone joining the mafia attack
What: Attack on the mafia meeting
When: Monday night, December 8th
Where: mafia building

An hour before the meeting, everyone who wants to make a stand against the mafia - violent and potentially ill advised though it might be - gathers in a nearby location to make final plans. Nick’s original idea of Xander moving a small number of people through shadows into the meeting to take out Albero is still technically in effect, but only for those who are planning on gunning straight for the mafia boss himself. Or those who want to help take him out specifically, even if not to deliver the final blow themselves.

Thorir’s provided weapons from his shop, for any network members who know how to use them. L’d agreed to handle the coordination of getting everyone in the building to take out as many of the mafia members as they could, and to hopefully confine the chaos inside.

Because once they’re in and fighting, it’s… probably going to be at least a little chaos.

But hopefully, by the end of the night, it’ll at least be done.

[OOC: Linking one more time to the plotting post in case anyone needs it as the log goes on! I’ll post up a thread for those gunning for Albero so the mods can NPC him as needed, otherwise feel free to start your own threads to battle mafia goons!]

[Lily appears on the Network for the first time in... weeks, really. Beyond a couple of text posts here and there, she's still been largely... shut down. As it stands, she looks more than a little worn out. Lack of sleep isn't as severe as it was a couple weeks ago, but things have still clearly taken a certain toll on her.

All the same, she smiles weakly at the camera. She's in her and Winter's room at the hotel provided to them in Germany.]

Hello, everyone. I've been... quiet for a little while, and I'm sorry about that. I can't say I've been in nearly as bad a spot as other people, but... [She bites her lip.] I guess I need to still work on dealing with certain kinds of things better, myself.

[She shakes her head.] But that's not what I'm here about.

Some weeks ago, Numbered were permitted by the German and Austrian authorities to investigate the large tower that appeared. Winter, myself, and several others made our way through it and eventually... well, found out we can go higher in it, and to space. You might already know about that, but...

We weren't the only ones there. Winter and I encountered two of the aliens - Geoff Benwick and Badri Barkley. But what we saw was them arguing, heatedly. In a language neither of us have ever heard or could understand.

Winter was recording it via Network access at the time, although there's no sound. Barkley in particular was acting strangely, once they noticed our presence - making a supposed "joke" about blowing the place up with us in it, which was what prompted us to transform. Instinct, I guess. And he brazenly admitted they got in their uninvited, having "lots of was of getting into places without permission."

Benwick was much more even tempered, but it was... very, very strange. Informing the authorities out here, they're tightening security, and have told us to keep an eye out for them. If they do anything else particularly strange, we should notify authorities, probably on both continents.

They also want information on them, whatever we might have. I can't... say this is a bad idea, especially knowing how dangerous Barkley could potentially be, for a group of people who said they came with no real weapons.

[Though perhaps not technically untrue - Badri is not inherently a weapon. Right?]

Also sort of bothersome... they had a bunch of Happy Meals. A lot. This isn't so strange, but... there were bags from all over Europe. I noticed that when were there, and going back over Winter's footage and doing some searching, it looks like there were ones in German, French, Italian, Swedish, Spanish, Greek, Finnish, Polish, and Hungarian.

They've been going all over the place, and if this is the first we're realizing this... That bothers me more than a little bit.

Still... this is just what we ran into. Be careful, and if you see anything else amiss... Tell someone.

[OOC - Apologies this is so late after the actual event, although they did not actually come across the aliens until late into that post as it was, plus some necessary fact checking with the mods! Luckily, a little mental trauma kept some folks grounded for a bit, so that... works for the most part. :D; ]

So. The unpronounceable German place is oooooooobviously going to come with its own hugeass pink bad guy. A duck or whatever, I guess. And we are going to spend forever twiddling our collective thumbs until it pops out one day and surprises us like some kind of asshole! Right?

This is not the States. The stars are the same but there's a time difference, the air's different, and I can hear... okay, um, the mountains-and-coast noise is totally different, and more tellingly, lots of people are speaking German. Unrelated, I uh... I have a picnic lunch. [He hefts a small wicker basket in the claws of his other wing. It's got tiny loaves and dainty apples showing under a cloth.] Or a breakfast. Pretty sure that's a pulse. -oh, suil.

[he gets distracted by someone talking to him offscreen, their voice raised anxiously, and folds the wing he's holding the phone in, then crouches to talk to her. You get a good view of his shirt, white feathers, and neatly-hemmed massive sleeve hole, and can indistinctly hear him speak reassuringly - sprechen sie English? Francois? no it's okay. I'm here by accident, it was a surprise. I don't know. Yes, probably. We don't want to hurt anything. - and etc. It apparently ends well. Julien brings his phone out again, looking more focused.]

Sorry about that. So... Bavaria, huh? I guess there's a castle uphill. You know, I think I'll go see. Cross your fingers I don't get jumped! -Uh, if you come here, you show up in a little cave and it's a climb to get here, but not bad.

Why Karl wouldn't let him use the industry scissors (and the shredder after) on it is beyond his comprehension.

Earlier this week, a local high school teacher was confronted with evidence that she was part of the organization that calls themselves the 'Numbered'. Her reaction - recorded by an onlooker - has brought new urgency to the questions we've already been asking. Are these people safe? Stable? How many of them are working among us and our children undetected?

[They play the scene, recorded by what is almost certainly a smartphone camera, with a few appropriate comments from the spectators - bleeped out expletives, mostly, although one voice wails "my locker!" at a certain point.]

No one was reported injured during this incident, partially due to the brave efforts of students Daniel Fenton and Robyn Lyre in distracting and restraining the agitated and destructive former faculty member. Police arrived quickly on the scene, but the men shown escorting her out are none other than the deputy superintendent and the homicide supervisor. It's unclear how they're related to this case - neither position would normally respond to a call like this one - but they clearly seem to be familiar with the perpetrator. Could the numbered be influencing the local police? We've brought some experts in to discuss.

[The 'experts' are well-known anti-numbered advocates, and the discussion revolves mostly around how dangerous and volatile the numbered are. They emphasize what a threat numbered might be to children. Ideas about how they need to be tracked and locked up are bandied about. Danny and Robyn are talked up as heroes, and Nick and Karl as either co-conspirators or victims of manipulation. Later reports - especially the tabloids - take these rumors and run with them. The teens are celebrated, and Nick and Karl are accused of sleeping with the Numbered - and each other - more than once, labelled as obvious sympathizers.]

Network Post, video

[Before the first broadcast is even finished, Sheila opens the network. To video, because why not. It can't get any worse. Can it? She's in sweats and has her head buried in her hands at her kitchen table.]

Yes. That's me.

What they didn't say is that I was fired on suspicion of being numbered, right before the video starts.

[Today's video of Danny brought to you with a wide grin on Cure Phantom's face and a backdrop of eyesearing bright green. It could be mistaken for a glowing green screen, if not for the fact that the color is subtly shifting in the background, and are those...floating boulders?]

Guys--guys, I figured it out! All those weird little portals that have been showing up in Locke lately? They're ghost portals! There's--this is some place called the Ghost Zone, it's like a whole other dimension where all ghosts come from!

This is--[Danny looks up and his eyes widen.] Oh--whoa, whoa!

[The video starts shaking and it's not clear what's going on, beyond the fact that the green in the background becomes a clear sky blue. Once the video stabilizes, though, it becomes clear that Danny's back in the human world. As he swings the phone around to show the sights before him, a small mountain range comes into view.]

...wow, okay, uh. I guess I'm in Vegas now.

[Lily appears, looking a little nervous.]

Hi, everyone. You might have noticed Linda posting before about Winter and I sort of, ah. Getting eaten by a magic mirror.

Obviously, that sort of. Well. Didn't last. We're fine - Winter and I both came out without anything wrong with us. If anything, we're... better than ever, honestly.

[She smiles.]

Sorry if we worried anyone.

In the meantime, we're still feeling our way around here in Vegas and figuring out what to do. I don't think any of us know how "permanent" or not this is going to be, and... all of the schools here are shut down for the time being. [She shakes her head.] But... we're managing, and we've got problems here that need to be looked into just as much as Locke. Still... if anyone needs anything back home, do say something, okay? [Her vision diverts from the screen a little bit.] I'm worried about you guys, so... stay safe, as best you can.

[And with that, she clicks the video closed.]

[Another day, another newbie, but this one is a lot more friendly than the last one. Yelena is new to the network, after an incident some weeks ago involving some goons and a cornered Numbered just happened to result in the revelation that she herself is Numbered. All she has to go on is some weird memory and some numbers she can recall perfectly.]

So... Ever get the feeling life's going to get a lot more interesting? [She's not sure if she can call it a 'good' interesting or a 'bad' interesting.]

Name's Yelena. Yelena Lyre. I hear my cousin's one of you guys, huh? [Those Mafia goons have made it personal when they went after Robyn. Sure, she doesn't see her much, but still, nobody pushes Robyn around if she can help it!]

[Emilia is a familiar face to most incarnates by now, but even so, there are a few changes to her this time. Namely a large pair of batlike wings, and the open backed dress she is now pretty much forced to wear. Needless to say, she's 'out' as a numbered now, her parents included.]

[The vampire's crimson, slit pupiled eyes narrow.]
I've just been given the suggestion that I should not go into school tomorrow. For my own safety, they said. Ha! I think we all know the real reason, don't we?

Let's face it, my changes are rather... obvious. So... what am I supposed to do now?
