I looked into it. Damian died, like we'd feared.

Is this kind of thing...par for the course?

What the hell are we even doing, letting this Habit guy run amok? And Joker. And I ran I to Two-Face in Queens. Not to mention all the ones whose names I DON'T know.

I can't sit idle here. I feel like I'm spinning my guns, you know?

Damnit. I don't like feeling like everything is so far out of our control.

Just when I got used to NOT being a total outsider, I end up going through this again. I know it's happened to a few of you, too, hasn't it?

How did you guys deal with it?

[ He doesn't REALLY need advice on that; it isn't like he's unused to weird crap. But he's putting feelers out, in a sense. It's more about the people it's happened to than their ways if dealing with it. No sense letting on, though. ]

Okay. I'm going to skip that whole thing where you get "Where am I, how do I get out?"

I did some looking around before utilizing the network. I know the answers to those questions, at least...sort of. Well enough for the moment.

What I actually want to know is more along the lines of what do I need to know? Not the location of the city or how I got here, but what's going down that someone who's new in town should be aware of.

Feel like helping a guy out?

[The feed clicks on to show... what is mostly kind of blurry red shapes against a white background. After a moment, though, the focus improves, and anyone looking at it long enough can probably realise that the red shapes are letters - but backwards. Yes, this is the back of something, and the message on the outside reads "ABANDON HOPE ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE" in big, red, and slightly drippy-looking writing, with a smaller "all your base are belong to us" underneath. The stays on the writing while Red Robin's voice comes over the feed, not sounding amused.] It appears we have some industrious vandals around here.

[There's a pause for a moment, then Conner calls out from somewhere not too far off.] Oh, no, that was me. [He sounds very pleased with himself.] Isn't it cool? Figured since Halloween is in a week... Can you see the scratch marks? Krypto helped but I don't know if he made them big enough.

I know there have been quite a lot of new arrivals since the last time he was here, so first of all, a word of warning - user id #24285221 is a man known as the Scarecrow, or Doctor Crane. He's a dangerous criminal from my world, and if you couldn't tell from his recent network post, he has a particular interest in fear. It's best not to engage him if you can help it, and try to avoid meeting him in person, since he specialises in the use of toxins and other drugs - if you are exposed to anything by him, contact the police as soon as possible.

Secondly, and what I would have liked to talk about first - my name is Red Robin. I run a team here, called the Teen Titans, and as the name implies, our membership is open to teenagers. Our membership has also... fluctuated quite a lot, recently, but we exist to give younger heroes a place to learn how to work as a team, and for those of you who either had no powers before arriving here, or who just aren't used to using any powers you have yet, we do our best to work on training with them. Even if you don't want to join the team, we're here to talk to, or offer any help we can.

Lastly... on a general note. I thought love letters went out of fashion in the 1800s, but it looks like I was wrong. What's the most... interesting way you've had someone confess their feelings to you?

For everyone who knew him, it looks like Impulse has been Ported out.

[He was kinda... waiting to see if he'd come back before posting about it, but well. Time to face facts.]

[Titans filter]

I was wondering if we should maybe look into more... actively recruiting teen heroes here, again. There are still a fair number of teenagers who get new powers when they arrive that could use help training with them, or who could just benefit from learning how to work in a team. But I thought I'd ask for opinions before opening the doors, so to speak.

I did offer Wiccan and Hulkling a place to stay while the rest of their team was gone, but with Hawkeye and Speed back, it doesn't look like that's going to be an issue for them after all.

Things are happening all over the world, but the City's still the epicentre of crazy, huh. Soul-sucking giant monster crazy.

Sorry I've been out of contact. I went undercover and it kind of took a little longer than I was expecting. [Were there NINJAS, Tim... or just, you know, girls. Even worse.]

How're you all holding up?

[The video comes on with a jolt, the picture shaking and turning like the comm is rolling to a halt. The view is a blurred shot of the bottom half of a pair of legs, in black leather shoes and neatly pressed dark grey suit trousers - and a pair of crutches and leg braces to go with them. The owner hops closer, all movement in the crutches and not the legs, as the camera continues to slowly roll and give a distorted, worm's eye perspective of - Tim, in a business suit, frowning down at the camera. He's spotted the red recording light, of course, and very quickly the base of one crutch hits the off switch.

A few minutes later, the feed clicks back on, and this time shows Tim's face from the proper angle - looks like he's sat down.]


Sorry about that, I'm still not used to getting things out of my pockets with these things. Hello, City.

[LOCKED to Titans, Batfamily, people who actually know him as Tim.]

That was kind of unfortunate. I guess I'll have to set up my Tim Drake-Wayne identity here properly, now.

What have I missed?


[OOC: YUP this is Tim on an all-new communicator since he just Ported in. He was totally going to just steal it and head back to the Tower, but he fumbled. He just got back from Russia, man, he's tired. SO, he's going with Tim Drake-Wayne being "new" to the City and a civilian derp to the masses on this comm in future! But obviously team mates and people who've already met him as... himself... like during the Young Avengers+Titans pool party and such, get to be in on the secret. WAS THAT... COMPLICATED ENOUGH... sob.]

Alright, so it turns out the person who attacked Jason is Nightwing, but I'm guessing he's been the victim of that brainwashing technology that was causing so many problems. And all the signs point to it being Slade who's the one pulling the strings. We need to get organised, track him down, and get Nightwing back and back to himself.

This is primarily a rescue mission, but I don't expect Slade to just hand him over peacefully, so we should go in prepared for a fight.

I have managed to track down a few sightings of someone matching Nightwing's description, so at least we have a general area to start in. Jaime, if you can help narrow that down by tracking his energy signature at all, that'd be a big help.

So... is it just me, or are other people waking up with no memory of last night and a growing sense of concern when reading back over the network? Because it looks a little like a handful of people went temporarily insane or something. [JAIME D:]

And if anyone could explain why I woke up covered with a blanket, a metric ton of body glitter and very little else, I'd be grateful.

For the people worried about Danny Rand, he's asleep in the Titans Tower infirmary.

Sorry.

[Titans filter + Kitty, voice]

For those of you who don't know yet, I had a lab accident that split me into two. A good and bad half. The good half was kind of locked up for a while and the bad half was running around, until Gar and Kitty came to the rescue - and thanks again for that, guys. So I'm... really sorry about this whole mess, and my - my bad half's behaviour.

I think I might need a few days to get my head straight again. Sorry.

[Batfamily filter, text]

There was a situation that's been resolved, with black kryptonite. I was split in two for a while. I'll be out of town for a few days.

Just a word of advice. This woman is known as Lady Shiva. She's a dangerous assassin from my world, unpredictable and not to be messed with. I know several people have accepted her sparring challenge already, so just... be careful, and hopefully she won't decide she has to kill you. I honestly can't say how likely that is, and she won't attack without reason, but I do know that she made her name and reputation by killing martial arts grand masters.

As far as I know, she hasn't done anything here yet, so let's just try to make sure that doesn't change. Danny.

[The video feed clicks on to show Red Robin, in costume, holding up one of those Chinese throwing knives, but instead of a bit of coloured ribbon, the little hoop at the end of the grip has... a piece of twine threaded through it. Really.]

What kind of ninjas actually join a cult devoted to a giant ball of twine? I mean - seriously, they must have had some low self-esteem issues. I'm not even sure what their elaborate plans to take over the world in the name of twine would have involved. Sacrificial looms?

It seems like there are a lot of tensions rising lately, and a lot of talk of war in one shape or another. But jumping into a conflict that's been on-going even before the Porter began bringing us here is reckless - even with what happened in Washington, and the open hostility of the mayor of LA, we shouldn't act without thinking. We weren't brought here to function as an army for this government, and getting caught up too easily would make us just that, but without any controls - it makes us seem like a dangerous force, and may do more damage than good.

What's important is helping and protecting the innocent people caught in the conflict, just as it always is. Whether we're popular or not doesn't matter compared to that, and attacking the HIVE isn't the only, or even the best way to achieve it. I can only echo Wonder Girl's advice, and suggest you follow it, whether you're intending to fight or not.

Titans, the Tower is under attack. It looks like Slade's robotic creations with an upgrade - [crashing noises and gears grinding to a halt in the background] but I'm willing to bet that it's part of the Major's attack. A diversion to keep us busy.

That doesn't make it a weak attack, however, so as many of you as can do so, move to defend the Tower. I'll be heading to Washington to see what's really going on. It's probably better if I go alone, or take a very small team to infiltrate.

For everyone who hasn't noticed, Superman is back. That... really speaks for itself.

In other news, I've agreed with assistant commissioner Maza for the Titans to work with the police in more of an official capacity. We will be there to support them when they need us, and vice versa, without becoming over reliant either way. That means sharing information on cases, staying in contact with them, and respecting their judgement as much as - hopefully - they will respect ours.
