[The video opens focused on a fridge that happens to be trapped in a cage. For a moment it just sits there then it starts snarling and shaking before spitting ice at the bars.]

Quiet down in there!

[Freedom Ring turns the camera to face himself. He's a bit bruised and has ice in his hair.]

Anyone else's appliances start attacking them? Well, appliances and furniture? The couch wasn't any trouble once I knocked it over. The blender was the worse though. It [He's cut off by two slices of toast smacking him in the side of the head. He turns in time for the toaster to fly into view and crash into Freedom Ring, making him drop the camera.]

Dammit! Get back here you!

[And the feed cuts.]

[Right now, Curtis is at the bar. He's sitting on a stool and idly flipping through a book about mixed drinks.]

Hey, City. Just wondering something and any of you out there twenty-one or older may be able to help me out. What's your favorite drink to order when you head out to the bar? Or even when you're just at home? What kind of drinks do you like the best.

Can't say I have a preference myself. Long as it tastes good and doesn't floor me in one shot, its fine with me. But what about you all out there?

[Curtis is leaning back on a chair in his apartment today, greeting the Network with a smile. He's got a cup of coffee in hand and seems to be in a pretty good mood.]

Good morning out there, City.

I just wanted to thank everybody that helped out with the concert. All the performers, the lovely Ms. Maggotbone and the rest of the DOI, the spectacularly talented Sofia, my awesome friend Pink, and all of you out there. While we didn't raise as much cash as that ball did...hey, we weren't auctioning off hot Imports, y'know...it was still a massive success. We got quite a lot of money going towards fixing up the City and we all had fun. I know I sure did. I'm thinking we should definitely do it again sometime. Maybe every year.

[He pauses to take a sip of his coffee.]

Oh yeah, before I forget. I've got a question for you all. What do you think would win in a race? A jeep or a rhino?

[Have a little rock fanfare music to brighten the afternoon, City. As the video pops on, Freedom Ring flashes a grin. He's on a stage somewhere and its pretty obvious someone else is holding the communicator for him. And he's not alone there today. He's got a trio of rather attractive blond women with him each wearing red and black outfits with the glowing blue ring logo on their chests. The music cuts out and Curtis jumps forward.]

Hello, City!

I'm hoping you all picked up your shiny new tech toys and they're not giving you too much trouble. We've got some great news for you all. The concert's on! This February 12th at [He provides a time and address, one of the women behind him holding up a sign with the same information on it.] the show will go on. We've got quite a gathering of talented Imports including yours truly and my team of amazing fans here. [He gestures at the women on stage who all strike poses for the camera.] But the great music and dancers aren't the only reason to show up. Don't forget that money raised is being donated towards fixing up the City we all live in. [Another of the women holds up a sign displaying where tickets are available and their prices.] And if you happen to be feeling generous, you'll also be able to donate a bit more while you're here.

But that isn't all. Some of the City's local bars and clubs are getting in on the fun too, parts of their profits for the night being donated to the cause as well so you can help out even if you don't want to come rock the house with us.

It'll be a night of fun for everyone and we'll be helping out the City. There's going to be great food and drinks on sale too so come on down and enjoy the show! [He strikes a little pose with those on stage with him as the music starts back up. The feed cuts out a moment later.]

Hello, Network!

[Freedom Ring's standing on the roof of the MAC, grinning at the camera that's propped up on something to show him.]

For those who don't know me, I'm Freedom Ring! [He strikes a little pose, his name appearing above him like the title of a comic book. It vanishes a moment later.]

And I'm here to tell you all about something I've been working on. Some of you might remember that awhile ago, I mentioned working on a concert. One where the proceeds would be donated to helping repair the City after all that crazy stuff that happens here keeps messing it up. Well, getting closer to making that happen. Tonight I'm telling you all that I'm just about ready to hold some auditions so we know who can do what and see who works well where and all that. So if you're out there and you've got some musical talent be it singing or playing an instrument or if you're a good dancer keep an eye open. Going to be putting out news when and where the auditions will be taking place soon!

So, Christmas is out of the way and there's another holiday coming up already. New Years Eve! [As he says this, the words 'New Years Eve' appear above him in sparkling letters and a rain of confetti surrounds him. A few moments later it all fades away.]

So, Network...what are your plans for the big night? Who's going to brave Times Square to see the ball drop? And good parties going on? Who's spending the night at home sleeping? Let's hear what's happening!

[The video opens with a shot of an emperor penguin. The camera pulls back and there are a lot more penguins. And snow and ice.]

I have no idea where I am.

[Freedom Ring turns his communicator around to put himself on camera. He's bundled himself up nice and warm but still manages to look miserable.]

Its cold, there are penguins, and I'm lost. I'm pretty sure I didn't do this myself. I mean I was just at work, cleaning up the bar and then suddenly I'm surrounded by all these birds.

[He looks around.]

Anyone know what's going on?

[The video opens focused on Freedom Ring's hand. He turns the camera around to show that he's outside a Target and looking a bit bruised up. Also got a nice cut on his forehead that's bleeding down his face. And he looks pretty annoyed.]

I thought I could get a quick bit of holiday shopping in today. That the craziness from Black Friday would have worn itself out over the weekend, y'know. But apparently not.

Some idiot just started a brawl in the middle of electronics in there which for some reason, other people felt compelled to join in. [He rolls his eyes.] And yank me into. Got smacked with a toaster of all things. What is it about the holidays that ramps the crazy up to eleven anyway?

[As he's setting the camera up on something, Curtis looks a little uncertain. Once he gets it stable on the edge of the roof he's standing on, Curtis puts on his usual grin and steps back enough so that he can be seen.]

Hello, City! It's Freedom Ring. Glad to see the City wasn't wiped out by...y'know...big and ugly tentacle face. Sorry I couldn't stick around to help fight but all that cosmic horror was messing with my cosmic power. [He laughs. Sure it's not entirely true but he's not getting into that.]

Anyway, I noticed that the City is kinda messed up again. Battle damage and all that. So it looks like we might need to raise some money again. And I have an idea on how to do just that. But...[He smiles.] I'm going to need help. I know a few people are on board right now but we could use some more help. Who was it that set up that Date Auction? Think they might be interested in helping to set up another charity event? Or anyone else for that matter? Since I've got an idea to raise cash and for everyone to have some fun.

So, Network. Who out there's got musical talent? Singing or playing an instrument. Either one. Dancers too I suppose. Any genre or style really. I got this idea that maybe...we could perform. Put on a concert for people. Maybe even for charity or something like that. Not sure on that part. yet. Just trying to get a feel for how many of my fellow Imports out there can make music.

[Filtered From Spider-Man]

Speaking of that auction...[He looks off screen a moment.]

Mind if I ask who else out there was bidding on Spider-Man? Wanted to ask you something if you were bidding on him.

[The video opens focused on what looks to be the ceiling of a MAC apartment. There's a little shifting before a hand with a ring made of strange blue metal on one finger comes into view. The fingers wiggle before Curtis starts speaking from off camera.]

You know. It seems weird that no one ever seemed to come looking for this thing back home. Sure it's only a part of that cube thing, but it can still alter reality itself, y'know. [Of course he's leaving out details but it's unintentional.]

Why didn't someone come looking for it? And how did it even get there in the first place? It seems to me that it's something important that someone would want to keep an eye on.

Maybe someone left it there for me to find on purpose. Like they wanted me to find it, y'know? But I have no idea who would do that or why.

[There's a long pause, the sound of a can being opened heard in the background.]

Or maybe people didn't come looking for it because they knew trying to take it from me would just get them a world-class ass-kicking.

[Curtis laughs and the feed cuts out.]

[personal profile] cosmic_ring_hero
[The video opens to Curtis leaning back in a chair in his apartment. The communicator is set up the coffee table in front of the chair judging by the angle.]

Hey, people.

First off, I hope all you kids from the school are okay. I'm really sorry about Dr. McCoy too...he was...a really great guy. Is. Will be again. Whatever...I'm sorry it happened and whoever's tracking down whoever did it, I'm available to help. If you need some phenomenal cosmic power, send me a call, y'know.

[He shakes his head.]

As for the second reason I'm talking to you all. I took a wander through a grocery store last night and an idea struck me.

[Curtis reaches out to turn the camera around, pointing it at a stack of boxes of pancake mix and other supplies. He lets the picture linger a moment before turning the camera back to focus on himself.]

Pancakes are my favorite thing to have for breakfast. So I'm going to do something nice for all you people out there. Tomorrow morning, I'm going to be making pancakes and anyone that wants some can come have a few. I'm supplying maple syrup...the good stuff...and some other toppings but you'll need to bring any drinks or special stuff you want.

So if you want a free breakfast, meet me on the roof of the MAC tomorrow morning. [A beat and he frowns.] Unless it's y'know, raining. Then I'll be down in the lobby.

See you then.

[He waves and then the feed ends.]

[The video opens focusing on the crumpled remains of a hang-glider on a rooftop. It's even partially on fire. After a moment, some water is dumped on the flames from off camera and the hang-glider begins to fade away.]

Rocket-Powered Hang-glider. Sounds cool, I know. But it was pretty-crash prone.

[The voice speaking laughs before the camera swings around to focus on a slightly embarrassed Freedom Ring.]

Not my greatest idea but hey, it was fun while I was in the air.

[Freedom Ring offers a little mock-salute to the camera, hovering up in the air thanks to the jetpack strapped to his back.]

I remembered something that happened two or so months ago and it made me think of a question.

What's your favorite song? Or even just favorite style of music. Hell, got your own theme music?

[There's a long pause before Curtis speaks, the sound of someone playing a few idle chords on a guitar filling the silence.]

Been thinking a little about something and I thought I'd ask you all on this fine morning.

Say you're just living your life back home. Normal, everyday stuff. Nothing too special or out of the ordinary and you've been living that way for awhile. Then as you're walking along, minding your own business...you find something. Not just any old something. Something that's...y'know, powerful. Powerful enough that it makes you one of the big dogs. Someone that could be right up there with the greatest heroes or the villains that even they're scared of if you wanted to be.

[The guitar strumming stops.]

What do you do with it? How do you react to that?

Know somethin' weird?
Well I woke up this morning thinking about my buddy Crusader back home and I miss 'em. That's not the weird part though. [A beat.] See, me and him used to train together. Powers, hand to hand stuff, smashing whatever random criminals we ran across. We did a lot of sparring too. Just testing eachother and helping one another get better. And man, I'm missing the sparring. I don't even like fighting really and I'm missing that rush I got when we would work out like that. Freakin' weird...[He grumbles a little.]

And this has been bugging me for a couple days. What the heck is a chinchilla?

Okay then. Quick question now for everyone.

Most effective hangover remedies? Who's got the best one?

Oh yeah. Geddoe! You and me need to meet up and talk. Wanna tell ya somethin' I found out.

[The video clicks on and takes a moment to focus before eventually settling on Freedom Ring. He's got his arms crossed over his chest and seems to be standing on a small stage of some kind with a deep blue curtain behind him.]

Okay, Network types. Seems some crazy...something, [He rolls his eyes.] has decided to happen. I'm not gonna go over it all again because that'd be boring as all hell, right? Let other people play recap narrator.

What I am going to do is offer my amazing self to try and help. Many noticed that a bunch of people vanished and showed up with messed up memories. Well, don't be without hope! I'm offering now, my help in finding out exactly what happened to you. I'm not that psychic stripper woman from the X-men. [A life-size picture of Emma Frost appears behind him for a few moments before fading away.] But I've got my own awesome power that may be able to help.

So, people who got taken, their friends and family...wanna give it a shot? Trying to find out what happened to your memories? Let me know! [And a big grin.]

[Wherever Freedom Ring is, it's kind of dark. He should probably turn on the light but doesn't yet. He's got a nasty case of bed-head either way and is yawning as he turns on the camera.]

So I missed something big. [He doesn't seem all that concerned about it.] Sorry I missed the fun. I think I might have gotten too sucked into all this research. Been spending way more time in libraries than I ever thought I would. May be in danger of brain explosion.

[He creates a bottle of soda and pops it open.]

How do you smart guys do it? All the research and studying and reading.

[Freedom Ring is in the Library. Odd enough as that is, he's got a bunch of books around him on human biology and radiation. He frowns before letting out a sigh.]

Okay. I could use a little help. I need to talk with a doctor or scientist type. One that can explain some stuff to me...and it's kinda important. I need to know about how like...the immune system works and radiation and how they like...screw one another up.

[He closes the book he was reading. ]

Keep in mind that I was a B-student in high school and never finished college or picked a major so...gonna have to dumb it down a little for me. So uhh...who can help me?

[The video clicks on, pointed at a bed that's a lot nicer than the one that comes with the MAC apartments. A bare arm's hanging off the bed, obviously belonging to Curtis. For some reason there's a few tiny clouds floating around the room as well it seems.

The com shakes a few times before the thing holding it comes into view. A small blue monkey with six arms. It hops around from the back of the com and sniffs at the camera a few times, poking and prodding some buttons.

There's a flash of light from behind the monkey and it turns its head. The bed seems to have turned into a rather large bowl and Curtis has fallen in.

Waaaah! Cold! Cold!

[Curtis climbs out of the bowl, just in his boxers and now some chocolate ice cream. The ice cream and bowl suddenly turn back into the standard MAC bed and Curtis notices the monkey.]

Hey! Gimme that!

[The monkey screeches as Curtis lunges for it. The picture becomes a blur as the com is moved around quickly. It settles on a close up of the apartment's ceiling, the sound of the monkey screeching some more heard.]

Come down from there you stupid little...wait. Why am I arguing with this thing?

[There's a flash and the picture blurs again. After a moment, there's a close up of Curtis' hand as he catches the com device. He turns it around and seems to be inspecting it for damage. There's a sudden surprised expression as he realizes it's been recording this whole time.]


[He looks away then shrugs.] Sorry about that.

[The video opens to show a rather large pink bubble filled with angry rats and pigeons trying to get out. Slowly the camera turns to show a slightly bored looking Freedom Ring looking away from the camera.]

What the heck am I supposed to do with these things after I catch them? I mean I could kill them but that just feels...wrong.

[He sighs and turns his gaze to the screen.]

So, all that aside. I have a question that's been on my mind for the past few days for all you out on the Network.

How many of you were dead before coming here? And how many are almost positive they're going to die if they ever go back from where they came?


Apr. 11th, 2011 02:24 pm

Hey, got a little question.

How many of you guys out there use your powers for like...personal gain. Not the villainy or extra greedy kind of gain. The kind where you make money and make your life easier kinda personal gain? And not the kind where you charge people to save them either.

[He's silent a moment, just City noises heard.]

Just here in the City I mean. Don't have to have done it back home.

[The camera starts out pointed at the sky but quickly turns to focus on Freedom Ring...who seems to be sitting on a recliner on a rooftop. He's idly sipping a coffee as he looks into the camera.]

So I actually sat down and read some stuff before I started this so I'll save on those same questions like 'where am I?' and all that. Being here isn't all that bad anyway considering that Evil Iron Man was like three seconds away from killing me. [He pauses to take a long drink of his coffee.]

So yeah. I'm Freedom Ring. [The ring symbol on his chest glows at this.] Evil Iron Man isn't here, is he? I hope not. And has anyone seen if a guy calling himself Crusader is around here?

[He finishes off his coffee and smiles.] And hey. What's there fun to do in this City? Aside from superheroing anyway.
