[There's the sound of a deep breath being taken, and then the person just...holds it. He does so for a few moments before releasing it with a chuckle.]

You know, a little vacation like this really lets a guy know how much he's worth. And if all this is any indication, my net value is apparently a small fortune in tinfoil. I guess a few people missed me, who'd have thought? [He snickers.]

It's funny, though. Just when you settle on the fact that you'll be here for the long haul, something comes along to remind you how limited your stay can be. Guess I shouldn't waste so much time this round. After all, if it's the waiting that's the real killer, why not find something better to do?

I have a few ideas.

[encrypted to Ari, Charlotte Gage-Radcliffe, Carrie Kelley]

I've got an offer to make. An opportunity to help you learn a few things.

Let me know if you're interested.

It's time we let you in on what's going on.

If you're listening to this message, then we have reason to believe that a month ago you were abducted by an organization that's only now been revealed to be Vulcanus. At this time, samples would've been taken to allow them to duplicate your powers and create templates to graft onto others. This is how the members of M.A.J.E.S.T.Y. got their abilities.

We've managed to make a few connections as to where each template came from, but by no means have all the blanks filled just yet. So, we need more information, if you can provide it, about your powers and what kind of applications they can be used for. If you've noticed any particular parallels between yourself and members of M.A.J.E.S.T.Y., that might help as well.

I'm sorry to have to drag you into this more than you already have been, but we'd appreciate any help you can give us. We need to know what we're up against.

So it's come to my attention that we have a number of new visitors that haven't bothered to introduce themselves. Poor manners if you ask me.

So if the owners of the following comm numbers could please step forward and be counted we'd certainly appreciate it.

{[ profile] wouldntthatbe}

[The rest of the post is filtered from the previous seven comms.]

There's been mention of someone monitoring the Network. Figure these are the most likely suspects.

[ooc: Yeah he left out [ profile] neckbeardless, but that guy made an intro post so there's no reason to single him out!]

Time's a funny thing, isn't it? Especially the way it'll get away from you.
See, my birthday was last week, and I completely forgot the thing. But that isn't even the interesting thing, here.

The question is, how old should I be now? I got a couple months out of sync, so did I turn forty last week, or do I wait till August to celebrate that? This isn't even mentioning that, chronologically, I was really born forty-four years ago.

This really isn't my field, all I can say is I never thought I'd live to see the day...

You know, the TCPD brass really ought to set up some kind of filter to let us freelancers in, to keep communication more streamlined. Might cut down on the number of times in a month I have to lurk around mailboxes.

Or make public posts to get their attention.

[Hello, Network. Here's Charlie smoking in the library. His nose is bleeding and his left eye is a little puffy. You might see Thomas, Walter, or Harleen wandering around in the background.]

Couple of shitheads were picking on Tommy, but I took care of 'em.

[He wipes his upper lip onto the back of his sleeve, then scowls at it. He looks straight into the camera now, directly addressing the Network. It is not a happy message he hopes to convey.]

I'm just gonna say it right now, if I any one of you motherfuckers tries to make yourself feel bigger by beating on the younger kids, you'll have me to answer to. I don't even care where you are, I will find you.

[And with that, Mister Internet Tough Guy signs out.]

You now, there are some questions that you'll be unlikely to ever get an answer to you can share. Not entirely impossible, as this place has proven, but the usefulness of the information, how it may apply to anyone else, is always suspect.

I've got one in particular in mind, but the answers will probably be different between here and home, and there's good odds they'll vary from person-to-person.

But I'm using a lot of words to make a very simple inquiry. [sorry everyone, he probably hasn't slept in a few days] What do you think happens when you die? Or, at the very least, between when you die here and when she decides to bring you back?

I have my own thoughts, of course, but my answers aren't important right now. Just the question.

Too many attacks going around lately. Too many questions.

I intend to ask them.

[Encrypted to Heine Rammsteiner]

What can you tell me about the man you fought here?

[The video blinks on to show a Valentine's card sitting atop a desk. It's black with a big heart cutout, a mass of red confetti inside the cutout, contained by plastic film.

Vic's voice comes in a little muffled, as though he's wearing a mask.

A very interesting piece of evidence has come to my attention. Something the police may be interested to see.

[A hand comes onscreen to open the card. Inside the words "VALENTINE'S DAY BY HARLEY QUINN" are written large in red crayon with heart shapes all around it. A few pages are stapled underneath. As the hand unfolds them, long, detailed plans in a flourishing whimsical type are outlined. Numerous plans for numerous crimes, finally culminating in breaking the Joker out of prison. They're accompanied by illustrative crayon doodles, sprinkled with one of a dead Batman here, a sad Robin there, and Joker and Harley faces surrounded by hearts at the bottom.]

I feel it speaks for itself.

[The video cuts off. He switches to voice.]

Ran into a bit of trouble, wasn't able to get more this time. Looks like they'll know me now.

I know it's probably a little too early to ask, but something's come up.
How's that project coming along?

[Encrypted to Zatanna Zatara]
I...might need a little help. If not from you, then maybe you'll know someone?

[ooc: Vic tried breaking into NOHoPE tonight. The guards caught him snooping in Harley's office, though, and he had to use the last of his binary gas to cover his exit. Unfortunately, this resulted in his mask being stuck to his face, soooo he'll be sticking to voice outside an encryption.]

[Vic is sitting at his desk, elbows on top with his fingers entwined under his chin.]

Given a few recent inquiries, I've decided to introduce a special rate for certain types of cases.
So, for $25 I can tell you if an imPort is still in the City. If they are and you need them found, we can take things from there.

[Encrypted to Oracle]
What do you know about NOHoPE?

[The video cuts in on an office door with the words "VIC SAGE, Private Investigator" painted on the window. After a moment, a tall, sharp-dressed man in his mid-late thirties walks in from the right. Vic Sage, finally showing the Network his face (well, one of them).

He tips the brim of his hat, then indicates the door with his thumb.

We are, as of this posting, now in business. You need something found, be it person, place, or thing, or you need questions asked, I'm the guy to see.

[He holds a business card up to where it can be read.]

So give me a call, or perhaps a reply here.
I'll see what I can do for you.

[The video centers on the chest of a well-dressed man, but his face can be scene from the bottom of his nose. The mouth is not smirking. His voice comes in strained and tired, but the cool tone of it hasn't gone away. He's spent enough time in front of a camera to know how to maintain control under pressure.]

I need someone to confirm for me that I'm not hallucinating.

[The camera whirls around to a brick wall nearby. On it is the shape of a little girl, maybe six years old. She'd look something like this if she weren't a shadow.]

Or at least that you're all hallucinating with me.
There's no little girl nearby, she...she couldn't possibly be, but am I the only one who sees the shadow of one?

I need names, full names, or photos. Possibly just voices. Preferably your own, but others may also work.
It's for an experiment.

[ooc: if Vic can find you and you have any preference for his MAC room's relative position to you, let me know! otherwise, i'll be picking them at random. if Vic can't find you, don't let that stop you from commenting here! it's an experiment, after all, just make sure to drop a note in the permissions post.]

[There's a rattling noise as the comm shakes with his hands.]

I don't know where I am, I don't know if anyone will even hear this, but I had to tell someone.
My name is Vic Sage, and...I can breathe again.

[A deep breath] For the first time in over a year, I can breathe again.

[There's a long pause, nearly thirty seconds, as he tries to collect his thoughts.]

I don't know what to make of this.

Bodies have been identified, more or less. Not, as aforementioned, children, but rather, criminals - mafiosi, gangsters, the like. Still investigating. Any information would be welcome.

In less important news, I had a random cat tested for parasites. Results positive for Toxoplasma gondii (also heartworm). This proves nothing, I'm merely making a point. Do you know what's all around you, day to day? What's in the food you eat, the air you breathe, the people you pass by? Here we are, a hive of superpowered individuals going about our lives while crazed villains lurk within our society, ready to terrorize citizens at will, and I'm "paranoid"? I think not.

First known Joker casualty discovered by Green Arrow and me. [Fairly gruesome pictures attached, filtered from younglings.] Man in a purple suit with grin stuck in rictus, pale complexion, greenish hair and red mouth. Not dye, not makeup. I've taken samples, but have no equipment; anyone willing to test them, contact me.

Efforts to find him should be coordinated. No one should be trying alone. Thoughts? Information? Who's looking for him currently, who are you with, and how often are you checking in with someone?

Paranoia is healthy. Stay safe and good luck.

This city has an overabundance of cats.

Did you know that Toxoplasma gondii, a common parasite found in the gut of cats, can alter the behaviors of infected rats so that they no longer avoid cats but are driven to seek them out? That researchers have noted links between Toxoplasma gondii and schizophrenia in human beings, approximately three billion of whom are infected? The parasite is thought to have different, and often opposite effects in men versus women, but both genders appear to develop a form of neuroticism called "guilt proneness". They are influencing our mental processes and behaviors through the furtherance of their life cycle.

Would I say that this "Iron Man" has been licking cat litter? No. Too soon to tell. But the situation should be monitored. How often do any of you see Iron Man or his premises?
