So, it's officially a year since I first signed on to this place. I kind of wish I could come up with something insightful to say, but considering people's reactions to that sort of stuff, maybe it's safer just to pass.

[Private to Tim]

How easy would it be to talk you into a snowball fight?

[Private to Shego]

What's your schedule look like for today, out of curiosity?

[Dick sounds pretty unruffled and maybe even flippant to the casual observer, but he's actually pretty creeped. No one enjoys catching a weird person staring at them out of the corner of their eye and then just not being there when you turn to look at them.]

So, I know "the Barge is taking a turn for the creepy" is old news at this point, but... is anyone else starting to feel like someone's following them around? I know it probably just sounds paranoid, but with everything else going on, it just seems... weird. Tim, if it's you, I said I was sorry I stole your sandwich, this is taking it a bit far.

Anyway. Is anyone up for sparring? CES, gym, somewhere else, where ever. [He's bored and feeling like he's getting out of practice.]

[Warden Filter]

Literally forever ago, there was some talking about giving some self defense lessons to wardens who felt like they needed some brushing up or an intro on how to protect themselves in the event of our next Barge wide crisis situation, which is probably happening next week or something if this creepy stuff keeps up, so I'll be in the gym this afternoon and will be happy to walk you through some basic stuff.

Or, if there's anyone who just wants to spar or something, I am definitely on board for that, too.

[Private to Jim]

What's the worst thing that could happen if I got hit with a phaser on a stun setting?

[Private to Arthur]

How are your ribs doing?

[Filtered to Snape, Lupin, and Sirius]

Since we seem to be getting some of the less morally upstanding people from your world, and because I'm generally curious, I was wondering about what exactly a non witch or wizard can do to protect themselves from spells from your world besides just running like hell.

[Private to Ariadne]

Have you been up to the CES yet?

I just broke up a fight in the inmate showers between Rex, Iago and Hoffman. Rex is saying Hoffman cornered him, and Iago stepped in to protect him. Hoffman's saying Rex threw the first punch- [His tone is pretty clearly saying he's notttt sure this is true.] And I wouldn't be shocked if Rex has a concussion. Maybe Hoffman too.

[Private to Lupin]

When I came in, Hoffman was saying to Iago that he was going to rip Rex's head off because he'd called him a rapist.

[Private to Iago and Rex]

How are you?

When you've got a moment, I need to talk with you about something.

[Private to Costigan]

Hey. Can we talk? If you're not busy.

[Warden Filter, David + Costigan & Inmates who are known causalities.]

Earlier this morning, David Harris went on a rampage, while affected by Death Knight abilities apparently granted by Arthas Menethil. His specific goal was to attack his warden, Jason Bourne, but while affected attacked and injured several others.

His known victims are:
- Slade Wilson - Alive (?), frozen solid.
- Dallas Winston - Killed, assaulted.
- Rex Lewis - Alive, assaulted,
- Zuko - Alive (?), frozen solid.
- Vanessa VanCleef - Alive, assaulted.
- Claire Bennet - Alive, assaulted, was incapacitated by ice.
- Jason Bourne - Alive, assaulted.

Tim Drake and I intervened when we heard a disturbance in the dining hall. David had his warden, Jason Bourne, pinned up against a wall by the throat, and didn't recognize us initially. After talking him down, he gave up the powers himself, without being forced to, and stopped his attack. Tim's taken David down to Zero.

Does anyone actually have status reports on the people he attacked, or more information about people who might have been injured? People who were hurt, a sound off would definitely be appreciated, if you're up to it. If not, I need some help trying to figure out where they are and how much immediate medical attention they'll need.

[Same Filter, but minus David.]

[There's a short pause. When Dick speaks again, it's definitely not in the voice of the usually good natured, friendly twenty something guy he usually presents himself as. It's harder, more intimidating and has serious overtones of Batman in it.]

I just want to make it explicitly clear that anyone who attempts revenge for what happened is going to have me and Tim to deal with. We've had issues in the past with people taking revenge after incidents like this - [The largest one he's got in mind, of course, is Perry's revenge killing of Rex.] - And nothing good's come of it. Don't be stupid.

David was pushed into this. He was desperately lashing out in response to someone he thought was a threat to his safety because of tactics his warden had used against him during his first escape attempt. I'm not saying David is blameless or we need or should to condone what he did or encourage him to do it again. But hurting him further now will do nothing but make things worse. What he needs right now is for people to support him. He needs positive influences, people who won't respond to violence with more senseless violence, and people who actually care about him, instead of viewing this as just a job, or thinking he's not redeemable based on what he's done here.

He will not go unpunished, and I seriously hope that Arthas will face consequences as well, but let that be handled by the appropriate people.

[Private to Bourne]

I'm including you in this. We both know the last time David hurt you, your judgment was clouded and you caused him serious psychological trauma. If you're feeling similarly emotionally compromised? Find someone else to do it. Not you, not Claire. Some other warden.

[And full on Batgrowl. Low, intimidating, controlled, the kind of voice that makes people crap their pants, regardless of their training or background.] And if I hear one word about you doing anything to hurt him further? David flipping out again is going to be the least of your problems.

So, what does this place have against goodbyes, anyway?

[Private to Tim and Dally]

Have you seen Steph?

[Private to Arthur]

Hey. Are you busy?

The hardest part of the job is always realizing that you can't prepare for everything. You can't be everywhere at once. And you can't always save the people you care about.

I'm not just talking about here, or about being a cop, but really, no matter what you do, if there's some level of danger posed to your or others, or even if there isn't, you're going to eventually have to face what it's like to lose someone you care about.

And you never feel more powerless then when someone you love gets caught in the crossfire of some psycho with a gun. Or a crowbar.

I've seen a lot of violence. And I've lost a lot of people. And it never gets any easier feeling like you failed, even when there's logically nothing you could have done to prevent what happened, because you cared and you should have been there for them. And honestly? I'm tired of it. I'm tired of seeing people I love die, or get ripped apart or tortured or crippled or blown up because something went wrong.

So when you can do something to help? When you can intervene and you can do some good and maybe save someone, even if you're putting your life on the line? You do it. It's never been complicated for me.

[Strikes readable by Bats minus Jason (sorry buddy :c). The whole post is public for maybe five minutes before he deletes it, but feel free to assume your character caught it before he did.]

[Private to Bruce]

Can we talk?

[Private to Tim]

How are you doing?

[Private to Costigan]

You want to go for a run or something? I promise I won't break anything or try to hold your hand.

The infirmary's been compromised. If you're in need of medical assistance, contact me or Tim Drake or try to get down to Deck One, we'll get you treatment.

If you've got questions, ask.

[Meaning, start a dialogue so he can figure out if you've been nanomited too. :|]

Notes for Costigan, Steph, Wally, Donny, Chuck, Arthur, Cooper, Hayley and Jason; Spam for Tim )

Notes from Tim to Sylar and Shego )

[ooc: Basically, Dick and Tim have set up a anti Cobra Agent base/makeshift infirmary in Dick's room - which is one of the Wayne penthouses and therefore is pretty spacious - with limited medical supplies and a couple people booked for giving a hand. Feel free to spam hanging out in the room or your character coming down being like HALP MY ARM IS FALLING OFF D: and Tim might be adding some notes to people once Ari gets back from work.

The two Robins are heading off to raid the infirmary and kick some ass at some point, thus wanting some ppls to hold down the fort while they're gone.]

[Warden Filter]

So, in light of Amanda's most recent network post, and some of the stuff Hoffman said to me while he was in the infirmary, I think it might be a good idea for someone to go through his room and make sure he doesn't have anything dangerous stored in there that we don't know about. There's some really bad blood between these two, and I'm pretty sure no one but the two of them really wants them to just keep killing each other every week.

I'd be happy to look through Hoffman's room myself, but if anyone's got particularly strong feelings about wanting to help, I wouldn't say no to an extra pair of hands.

And speaking of weapons and all that, does anyone actually know how she got her hands on the knife in the first place? I know she's unassigned, but I thought people were trying to keep an eye on that, all things considered.

[Private to Ariadne]

Did you ever find out where she got the knife?

[Dick is a little out of breath and looks a little worked over, although not actually that hurt aside from a gash on his temple. He's ducked behind a wall trying to make the recording as fast as possible before his pursuers catch up to him, which... should be interesting. Thankfully he knows his way around by this point, and you know. He''s good at this kind of thing.]

So I'm on the run. From Aztec warriors. Who are apparently trying to haul me off to Zero. And didn't really take kindly to me saying I wasn't interested.

Just as a head's up to anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of running into them yet, these guys know how to fight and they're - [There's a pause as he takes out another warrior coming down the hallway, knocking him backwards into his fellows before continuing his run down the hallway, still making the recording.]

Pretty damn stubborn. I wouldn't recommend resisting unless you've got a black belt in something. They're definitely not afraid to rough you up a little first.

[Private to Tim]

[Please don't be possessed, please don't be possessed, please don't be possessed...]

Just out of curiosity, how much of your gear do you have on you?

And Wally's been possessed. I'm not sure if he's still got access to the Speed Force, but he implied that he did. Don't try and engage him if you see him.

Oh, and we still need to have that talk.

[Yes. He is being 100% serious.]

[Private to Chuck]

Pretty sure I figured out what the guys with clubs are here for.

[Private to Steph & Hayley]

Are you okay? Where are you?
