[ Karen takes a breath, as if she's uncertain about this whole prospect. Sending out a message on an unknown social network, not her favorite thing in the world. But it's absolutely killing her, not knowing what this is or where it came from. ]

Uh, hello? I just had this device with my name on it appear on my desk at work this afternoon. And no one around the office seemed to have any idea what it is or how it got here. So, I left in my desk. At work.

And now I'm at home. And it's on my desk. At home. I know because I called work and Sandra checked my desk drawer, and it's not there anymore. I'm really curious to know where it came from and why it's following me.

Anybody here have any clue what's going on? What does this big Transport button mean? Is this some kind of time share deal because I'm a journalist and I don't make enough money for a time share. Or is this about the Fisk thing? Is that why someone sent me this?

Anyway, hi. I'm Karen Page, I work at the New York Bulletin and I live in Hell's Kitchen. If anyone here can fill me in, I'd be thrilled. Thanks again.

If you go to the CALL net app and hit the little bars at the top right there's a little tutorial that tells you a bit about it.

But pretty much, it's always going to find you again. I dropped mine and a cow stepped on it day two and it didn't even scuff.

But it's not from anybody in your world, probably. I mean, no one knows who I am and I got one.

Yeah. It's weird. But pretty cool.

If you hit the 'TRANSPORT' thing, it'll actually bring you to the city. You go to the City of Tomorrow. It's pretty cool. Totally futuristic.

[personal profile] american_alien 2016-07-21 07:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Yup.

Saying so from experience. I go there most nights after I'm done with my homework, before I go to bed.

It's kinda weird. Sort of blink and suddenly you're in a totally different place. It's actually weirder because there's no sound or lights or funky flashes. Just blink. Boop.

No after effects that I've noticed. Though sometimes it messes with my sleep if I don't time it right.

Um.

You can wear whatever shoes you want, I guess. Some places are better than others for nice shoes.

Not that, I don't think. Mr. Stark was just as surprised to find his too.

The lady at the front desk at McAran didn't seem to know why we got them, though. But she had a bunch of other answers.

Karen?

Don't hit the Transport button.

And no, I don't think it's Fisk related. You don't have to worry about that.

[personal profile] takesabeating 2016-07-21 06:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I got one. Don't tell Foggy I advertised all over a strange network that he takes selfies, by the way?

Because it actually does what it says it does. Transports you to another place.

I slammed the button on mine the second I got stabbed out of panic, landed in the lobby covered in blood.

The "transport" does exactly as stated, I don't know if it's tech, magic, or some combination, but it brings you to a very unique city.

While the technology seems entirely safe, these cities are as dangerous as any other. Some less than others.
clay_and_truth: (Default)

I kind of am, does that count?

[personal profile] clay_and_truth 2016-07-27 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
I admit to not knowing much about the ways of the Asgardians or their magic, so I wouldn't be able to make a comparison.

But it seems to be a combination of some sort of magic and technology, which is something my own people have some experience with.

apologies for epic lateness, trying to ease back into Diana.

I'd enjoy that. I was an ambassador for my people back home, it seems only fitting to at least share knowledge of our culture here.

The New York Bulletin? Newspaper? I, ah, never heard of that one. But you aren't the first person to mention Hell's Kitchen.

[Dave is started to think the SFC likes newyorkers.]

Anyway, ah... hi, Karen, I'm Dave and this isn't a time share. More like a free invitation to the multiverse.

[personal profile] dragonring 2016-07-27 09:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah, it was this blind guy-- Matt? He was a lawyer from the Kitchen. [Ok, he has to chuckle at that last bit.] Not exactly. It's the set of finite and infinite possible universes - like, other worlds? Alternate realities?
dragonring: (076)

[personal profile] dragonring 2016-07-27 11:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Really? That's-- yeah, small multiverse. I'm from New York too. [Not fair though, he wants more people from home to come here too.]

I'm in the SFC right now, yeah. I come and go all the time, it's pretty easy. And safe too, if you know how to avoid the vampires and buggy robots.

Time stops at your world while you're here, so don't worry about your job. It makes it a good place to fight deadlines.

[Dave raises both eyebrows in surprise - pretty women usually don't ask him that. Or any women, really, Becky is just a miracle. Of course she's just being nice so...]

Wha-- I mean, yeah, why not. I love coffee. I'll find you at Tomorrow then?
dragonring: (059)

[personal profile] dragonring 2016-08-12 04:32 am (UTC)(link)
I don't think anyone here knows what we're getting into. [It sounds a bit like a joke, but also a bit pessimistic. A nod.] Works just fine.


((ooc: that would be cool, thank you!))

It's not so bad. The button takes you to some pretty wild places. For example, I went to a city where cars fly, so...you know. I think it's pretty awesome.

I'm Tony, by the way.

omg karen you are so cute

[personal profile] iron_man 2016-07-29 02:24 am (UTC)(link)
Hi, Karen. Thank you, it's always nice to meet a fan. So you're a New Yorker too?

That is definitely the City of Tomorrow. There's other places you can go to as well, but I only know that one and the City of Laughter so far. But yeah, I'd be more than happy to show you around. Fair warning, I'm still relatively new around here, but we can always explore together.
iron_man: (7)

[personal profile] iron_man 2016-08-13 08:50 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, really. There's a cafe near the McAran building, I can meet you there.

See you soon.

[ooc: I'd love to continue their conversation, too! I'm currently on my phone, but I can tag your log if you want, or a starter? I'm easy and can go with either. :D]
