I was thinking about how Falke's going to be really conflicted about Tony now with his AU update* and realised that him figuring out his dream was actually new memories is actually a great reason for another round of weird presents. *happy claps* Though he gets to shop off Amazon again now instead of "stuff he found in the desert full of lost caravans and corpses" so it could be slightly less weird... or slightly more weird. Could go either way.

* footage got leaked of him uh strongly resisting arrest at the airport and the media was pretty curious about who this guy was and Tony said basically that he was a victim and should have been gotten help instead of being locked up and showed video of him showing up mid-battle to do battlefield medicine. Of course he also shaded the hell out of Steve over getting him involved... and then Falke killed a bunch of IDF who tried to capture him and lost whatever poor broken lamb cred he had... but you know, it was a gesture.

Working on Falke's AU for the between-movies gaps etc and honestly one of my favourite things is just that he never has a single fucking clue about what's going on. Like, he turns up end of Winter Soldier, then there's Age of Ultron which he completely missed and I really don't know if he even knows it happened at all still, Civil War where Clint fetched him and brought him to Germany and Steve told him who to hit but never really explained why, Black Panther that he actually slept through, and then Infinity War he's going to miss basically all the explanation and set up again as well. At this point I don't care how many more movies I play him for, I'm going to keep this going as long as I damn well can. It's just a rule now. He's never allowed to know what's going on.

I mean I haven't actually seen this yet but since I'm logged in anyway and I've read a ton of spoilers

Slept like crap Friday night. Up early Saturday to get to work by 8am. Voting started at 9, closed at 7pm, stayed to do reconciliation and packing up until just past 10. That's fourteen, count them, fourteen, hours, and then I had to walk back up the hill, check in with everyone to see what the results were looking like so far (not great but could theoretically swing a bit more left still), and ended up taking some lorazepam and going to bed around midnight.

Oh, and it was daylight savings so we lost an hour. I. AM. SHATTERED.

Today and tomorrow off, then on Tues I head in to the electorate headquarters to investigate any double votes, etc. My schedule is Tues-Fri, then Sat-Mon off, then Tues on and that's about where they're predicting to finish up hopefully.

Anyway on Knowhere Ianto's doing some tribble modelling to predict how screwed they are, Caithe is pondering at which point they turn cannibalistic, Maya is sulking a bit, Angela is weirdly insulted by them and slicing them up with her ribbons if they get too close, Elsa is prepping weapons, Storm is securing her gardens as much as possible, and Sam is sort of hibernating since his metabolism requires either a lot of food or a lot of sleep. His drone is still guarding any caches the tribbles might be able to get to and it set to pew pew them.

On Displaced Maya's chill with helping with the party stuff, Aracely's thrilled to visit New York again and wants to try all the snacks people sell from food carts and see all the animals, America's sort of *thinking emoji* about Kate maybe having secret powers, Laura's been working at the bar and the gym and possibly chatting with Jason Todd a bit, Angela is working on an accounting of her life and possessions in the hopes she'll find some kind of goal or motivation. Etc.

LOL so I'm reading that last run of Captain America with Dimension Z and all that crazy shit and near the end it shows what can only be Sam's apartment based on the posters and music collection etc. (And the fact that it's just him and Jet there and she sure as hell doesn't have a place.) His apartment is really high up in a skyscraper in the Upper West Side. This is when Steve's already turned crazy old, Sam's about to be made Captain America, and in a matter of months he's going to be needing to ask his brother for money to pay his bills and living somewhere that's definitely not the same place. So at first I was like "WTF?"

Then I realised, actually, it totally makes sense. First, later on he's on the outs with SHIELD, whereas while Steve's Captain America they work with SHIELD a lot. He's probably listed as a contractor and getting paid by them, and when he gets banned from SHIELD for helping the Whisperer escape and negotiate an immunity deal they'd cut him off. Also, he grew up poor as hell. He spent all his time at work, at school, doing community work, or trying to raise his siblings. His money management skills are all based around making ends meet when he's barely got two bucks to rub together. SHIELD contractor pay? Hell yes, he's going to rent a place way up in the sky in the Upper West Side. He's probably also giving his niblings tons of presents and donating a heap to the family's church. He has dick all savings. Which made me think of last Christmas in Displaced when I had him make a huge list of people to get presents for and max out a credit card, which is exactly the same behaviour. I fucking love when things tie together like that.

lol Maya is so excited for the Olympics and it's sort of ridiculous because [apart from the gymnastics] I actually am not that keen on them. I doubt I'd be watching at all if not for RP purposes, because I am an enormous nerd. Though I am looking forward to seeing Simone Biles perform, I've been watching her on YouTube and her footing on beam is just amazingly on point, I don't think I saw her wobble at all.

Been thinking about housing for Tumbleweed in Displaced since they'll have copies of their own-universe homes. Most of mine are pretty standard but there's a couple that aren't. atm it's something like (this being all my current characters without accounting for potential drops):

Ianto: has a kind of crappy flat that he spends/spent hardly any time in
Maya: loft apartment, so I guess on the second storey of a residential building
Sandry: either her suite of rooms from her uncle's place or Daja's entire house. if the latter she would almost certainly invite anyone who needs a place to stay there.
Laura: her place in the Bronx! that used to be Logan's place in the Bronx. she is actually not technically homeless anymore, it's so exciting.
Nico: Loki's house from Arcadia. Also has spare rooms since she lived there with Loki and America.
Cassie: her parents' farm would actually fit the setting pretty well, but she's only 16, so she'll probably have to hit up someone else to house her
Thalia: doesn't have a fixed home, plus she's 15. whatever the rest of the demis do she'll probably stick with them because she'd be looked at askance if she set herself up in a tent.
Ana Lucia: presumably she has an apartment in Los Angeles
Hurley: has a freaking mansion. who was making up stories about being super rich now, Charlie??
Tamsin: the place Bo and Kenzi and her have been squatting all series with the holes in the walls and crap, lol
Lexa: her room in the big tower with the big fancy bed and a nice little balcony
TJ: X-Mansion probably, because the Crystal Palace would be kind of hard to replicate and I have no idea where she was staying while she was in New Excalibur
Remy: I mean... Remy lives here. which could be a problem. maybe he'll just turn up and be like "so guys uh my massive underwater palace did not make the trip does anyone have a big bathtub?" haha. I'll figure something out. (yeah, he can actually live in a normal house, he just... never has. except for this week in the barracks on the island. this is literally the only time and it's freaking him out a bit.)

I kind of feel like it would be hilarious if they had Pokemon Go on the island. Though it would probably also up the death rate a bit.

Give me one of my characters and one of yours and I’ll (do my best to) tell you about one time they kiss.

I still kind of want another guy at Displaced even though I have a perfect 10 characters now which fits my character page code amazingly. idek who I'd pick though. Benjy, Pepper or even the Prewetts are probably out since they're basically just names. Sheriff Graham maybe or Zacharias, though despite there being several HP characters there, they're *cough* not exactly ones he gets on with. A lot of the characters wanted overlap characters I already have a fair bit too. Maybe I'll scour through again and see what I can figure.

Quick shower thoughts:

Obvs i'd love a Jack Harkness at Displaced. BUT, it would actually be doubly interesting bc their normal dynamic works around Jack being his boss. And it wouldn'the be a total inversion of that or anything, but Ianto is currently on track to be pretty heavily involved in things - I've played in other games where that ended up happening (hello expatriate). It would be kind of fun to see Jack turning up and them adjusting to a dynamic where Ianto has pre-existing responsibilities and Jack's a bit more in the "eye candy" role, rather than the other way round. That's not actually something I've ever played, usually either Jack is there first or they arrive around the same time, or if Jack arrives later they haven't had a romantic relationship (again, hello expatriate).
