Who: River Song and you!
What: An open log for the whole month of October! Before the Halloween plot, during and after!
Where: River is a wanderer, so if you want to find her somewhere, find her there! (During the Halloween event she's going to be in Attleton cause that's where she lives and works.
Warning: Flirting. All the flirting, emotional stuff because of her fear. Some actual River Song anger, potentially.
Don’t get too close. It’s dark inside )

[A deathly pale brunette could be seen wringing out her coat as Gwen Cooper comes onto the feed. But her paleness is nothing to worry about as she speaks.]

Icing on the injury cake? Its been a bad enough day since last thing I remember was sleeping off a massive headache on the couch at the Hub.

So Jack, Ianto and Rhys you guys here?

[he sitting in his office... where else would he be?...absently fingering chords on his guitar]

If anyone knows slash is, ah... [consults a notebook] David Haller or Olivia Moore, I'd like to speak to them at their convenience. Just let me know.

Anyone who is in my class, remember homework is due at the beginning of next week. I look forward to grading your essays and if you're not prepared to write eight thousand words on Shakespeare's Universal Influence you're not prepared for university so I don't want to hear any whinging.

If you have any questions or want to find me otherwise... [he gives a look to the camera as if talking to several people at once] I'm going to be playing at some Blues Bars in Nova City. And one place called a honky tonk. If anyone of me shows up wearing a cowboy hat and tries to be clever, promise not to wave at me. Anyway the list of the places is posted outside my door.

That's all I've got.

Peace out!

[v for victory sign because he is Hip and With it and signs off]

[Action for the Ponds]

[it is after midnight and anyone currently staying in the Pond House may hear faint sounds of someone quietly playing Mario Kart on a wii.]

Oh come on! That shell wasn't even fair! I know you're tired of losing at life, Luigi but the least you could do is not make it miserable for everyone else!

[ooc: anyone looking to action it up can do so in his office or one of the bars]

[When River flicks on the camera, she's sitting in her office at her desk, and she's got an antique Earth map on the wall behind her. She's holding a cup of tea, and she's smiling.]

Hello. For those of you who don't know me, I'm River Song and I'm a professor of archeology at Attleton University. Normally, I specialize in Earth and Earthen settlement archeology from a multitude of time periods. However, given that I'm going to be here for the foreseeable future, I decided I'd try my hand at some more local ruins, if there's someone who'd be willing to be a guide. If nothing else, I do so miss having my hands in some dirt.

To those who know the Doctor--and particularly this one--it's probably no surprise he's already on the move by the time he actually tries talking to someone on that phone, obviously wandering/exploring the city, by the way the background moves behind him.

"Hello, lovely holographic welcome wagon you've got, very informative, except not actually, leaves a few important questions unanswered, well, all of the important ones, really, in particular, it says 'kidnapped,' well, it happens I don't generally kidnap that easily, raises some questions, that. All the obvious ones, and, which of you know something more about it?"

He raises his eyebrows (such as they are) at the camera as though prompting anyone watching to go ahead and not be shy, smiling harmlessly. Either someone would answer with something helpful, or no one would, which would be informative, in itself; the automated gas defense that a sonic scan had revealed in the holoprojector had dissuaded him from trying to hack it, but had also raised his suspicions just a bit.

"Don't hesitate to give me a ring, might just be I can help, sort of a thing I do."

He smiles a little more at that, and clicks off.

Meanwhile, of course, anyone who happens to be in the streets of Genessia might have a chance to stumble across the fellow in the Victorian coat and bow tie, looking around like he's expecting to find... something, possibly many somethings, seemingly walking aimlessly but at quite a brisk pace. He very might well approach, though, if he spots something interestingly out-of-place or suggesting access to useful information or okay let's be honest just anything strange or interesting at all might grab his attention, at least for a moment...

[Rory had admittedly stayed away from his so called device for a time. He just needed to wrap his head around the fact that he was not in his living room with Amy and the Doctor.

He rubbed his temples. Amy and the Doctor.... Where were they? Were they safe? Shite! why was he sitting around here? He jumped up and started roaming the cities, flipping his device on]

AMY! AMY! Where are you Amy? I didn't wait 2,000 years for you just to lose you now. I will find you!

After the weeks it took to finish, Ayame's first ever house is ready to open it's golden gate for guests. The groundwork was from the effort of Attleton's hardworking people; but Ayame finished the rest, putting together the floors, the walls, and roofs with nothing but her power. Every door is open for guests to come see every room inside at their own leisure, with the plants at the gardens at full bloom and an open swimming pool in the backyard as the centerpiece of the house. Ayame's Attleton neighbors, and friends in the fashion industry help populate this night of revelry...

The Backyard & Swimming Pool

Directly from the main gate are two large hardwood doors leading to the infinity pool. The roof is yet to be installed along with the walls, so it is for the meantime an outdoor swimming experience and a part of the entire backyard where the party is held. The tea room is yet to be installed, so in it's place is a small platform that acts as a stage for the performers. The bonsai greenhouse is also not built yet as well, allowing for more space in the backyard for guests to use as a patio with the bar, serving up drinks provided by Gale Reinhardt's night clubs After Life and Hangar Queen, including the special cocktails only available in both clubs. Assorted water guns are available for use.

There is a drinking challenge at the bar for anyone over 16. It can be a drinking contest between two or more individuals, with the last person standing is declared the winner. Or it can be a single-player match against the bartender, where he or she provides drinks that gets progressively stronger. If the contestant survives the strongest drink, they win the game. Winners get a prize of a glass trophy of themselves, a commemoratory photo with a certificate of proof that they won, a gift basket of snacks, and bragging rights.

The Dining Area

With it's doors and windows all open, the dining area is temporarily one with the backyard so guests can come and go to sample the Taiwanese feast on display on the dining table and kitchen island. Main dishes include Taiwanese-styled popcorn chicken (marinated with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, five-spice, and white pepper before being fried, making dipping sauces unnecessary), tofu fries, gua bao (pork buns, although available in chicken), black pepper buns (much like the gua bao, only the meat is stuffed inside the bread and is baked in a tandoor), & scallion pancakes (a flaky flatbread treat that comes with just the scallions, or can be used as a wrap for beef and chicken, with the added egg).

Desserts include: Run bing (peanut brittle shavings with scoops of ice cream, wrapped in a spring roll wrapper), red bean & pineapple cakes, finishing off with assorted bubble teas.

There is an eating challenge at the kitchen. Survive eating a full course meal of chicken or lamb curry with Carolina Reapers. Superhumans get an extra helping of the peppers to make it fair as possible. Preparing it requires the cook to wear a gas mask, and even inhaling the aroma of the peppers from a few feet away can cause most people to feel it burn their nose and throat. The contestant must finish the entire meal to win the full prize of a glass trophy of themselves, a t-shirt of proof that they won, a plush toy, and bragging rights. Not finishing only leaves them with participation t-shirt with a gold star that says "I tried".

The Living Spaces

With most of the noise being outside, the inside of the house is fairly quiet in comparison. The living room is still a place where people gather to converse without all the noise or risk getting splashed with water. Upstairs are the bedrooms, which are all open for people to come in and observe, with the two master bedrooms connected by the two-floored walk-in closet displaying all of Ayame's massive collection of clothes, bags, hats, shoes, and accessories. You're welcome to touch them or even try some of them on, but don't expect to vandalize it or leave the room with them without alerting the host. She's very protective of her collection.

Perhaps the quietest place in the house is also the most traditional. The guest portion of the house have tatami rooms both up and downstairs, with the latter having an elevated wooden corridor next to a small garden, providing fresh air to those who want to take a break or have a more private conversation.
