Teddy's gone. I'd say I'd gone and looked everywhere for him but it's kind of not that meaningful of an action when he just vanishes out of thin air.

[Billy's voice is hoarse, like he's been crying or maybe talking too much but he tries to keep his voice stable anyway, tries not to be That Kid that cries on the network because his boyfriend is gone.]

It'll be good for him, to be home. I mean, you know, if we actually manage to stop the interdemensional parasite. But it's still...still home and that means something and our friends are there and from him I'm there too, right? So it's. So we'll be together. And that should make him happy.

But, um, I just wanted to let people know I guess. Especially since he had a job and everything. Sorry.

[There's nothing for a moment before Billy comes into focus, looking a little grave like he intends this to be A Serious Blogpost or something at least sort of important.]

Hey it's Billy. Kaplan. Yeah you can get that from the id on the post, but whatever. You probably heard from Clint but Kate (Bishop) left like a week ago -- 10 days, actually. And it wasn't that long before that that Eli left. Back home, they were my teammates. [there's a short laugh, because he certainly hasn't been much of a teammate any time lately, at least not since that fiasco with Wanda and Doom.] Both of them were real heroes, the kind you'd want on a team. And then even when the team split up Kate still kept really fighting the good fight, you know? She really believed in it.

When I got here three months ago the whole, "welcome, hero" bit seemed really silly to me. I thought I was done with that. One thing back home to fix and that was gonna be it. Done. Hanging up the cowl. But...since Kate left I've been thinking a lot. She kept doing it no matter what, and maybe - maybe she's the example I really needed. The world needs more Kate Bishops.

I have a gift and Teddy's right, I've been wasting it not using it. I want to make things right. I want to believe again that every little bit counts, and I don't want to sit here doing nothing anymore, but I know I can't do that alone.

[deep breath, Kaplan. Try not to think about how people might just see this post and laugh about your delusions of grandeur. There was definitely a point here.]

I fought on a team before, and I think that's the way to go about things here, too. But more importantly, I really need to talk to magic users. I know that not everyone's worlds will have the same kinds of magic but maybe if I compare notes with enough people I can start learning how to refine mine. And if I do that, then...then I'll be better.

If anyone wants to fight, or help, or -- I don't know, feels the same way? We should talk.

"Don't eat other citizens," - someone really thinks it's necessary to give that direction? I mean, don't get me wrong, it's definitely good to not eat other people, I would just think that it wouldn't be the best idea to bring people that might eat the other citizens. It wouldn't really be cannibalism though, right? Because if you brought someone from another planet that wasn't a human, but ate humans, then....

[Billy kind of trails off as he contemplates this - and then the fact that wow the first thing he's posting to the notwork is discussing the technical terminology of cannibalism when it comes to alien races. Awkward.]

Anyway, hi. I'm Billy. I was kind of in the middle of something back home but I'm guessing that's not really going to do anything for me in terms of getting back there, so it's probably better just to get into this whole network....thing.

Oh, yeah, one last question - so "Stark Technologies" communicator, right? That wouldn't happen to be Stark as in Tony Stark, would it?

[I mean, hey, there are other Starks in other worlds. GRRM is particularly fond of killing them.]
