How is Seattle in the fall? I might need you to be my personal TripAdvisor.
I hope the filming is going well.

I'll be leaving for a week; would you mind keeping an eye on the cottage for me? Just swing by once or twice, and make sure it hasn't burnt to the ground?

[After she leaves town without a word, Albin decides to cut their their losses. Hannah hasn't been able to learn what Carnem sent her to learn, and Albin is concerned with liability. Ergo, Hannah is to be returned, and Arthur is assigned the task. Once this is made clear:] Hi. I'm ready whenever you're ready.

[Locked to Hugh M]
Hi. Did you learn anything from that electronics guy? Maybe?

[Locked to Seven M]
I'm sorry I didn't reply to you when you messaged back. Things got a little bit weird. Are you doing okay? I know Marta is coming home.

[Arcade, group log, open.]

Who: Anyone who wants to come/group log thing.
What: A dark, free-night.
Where: The Neon Retro Arcade.
When: Fridayish, after this.
Warnings/Rating: Anything goes in here. Feel free to start individual threads within.

The arcade, as a rule, was open later than most anything downtown. The owner wasn't local, and he really didn't care how the thing was run, not as long as it was making money. The place didn't open until after noon most days, and it closed late, making it a regular haunt of the town's younger adults. But tonight was special. Tonight it was 10 pm, and all the lights inside were turned off. The games still operated, neon casting the otherwise dark space in a bright-bubblegum glow that still maintained clusters of shadows and utter darkness.

The games were all free for the evening, and the PlayStation and X-Box, situated against the back wall and across from a pair of couches, were also free to use. There was a cooler in the back hall, next to the bathroom, with drinks, and the music that played through the arcade speakers was loud and fun, adding more conversational privacy to the already dark space.

And it went without saying that no one was policing anything happening within. Even the local sheriff was understood to be looking away for the night, thanks to anonymously greased palms.

[The poor owl has a bit of a difficult time finding Adrian, though she eventually does find him. Strapped to her leg are four or five books, magically lightened. There's a book of simple charms and jinxes, simple transfiguration, basic potions, and a bit of magical theory. Some have notes, others appear untouched. They're old and likely a bit out of date, but, as far as foundations go, one could do worse. There's no note, but the interior cover of each book bears a nameplate with Newt's name.]

I know there's been talk of nothing happening for Halloween this year, so I'm going to put this out there for those interested: The local arcade, we'll be running a dark night come this next Friday. All the games will be free, and the lights inside will be off. 18+, so I don't get the owner sued for more than exceeding capacity. Come if you're as bored to tears of this little town as I am.

Hello. My name is Rey Smith, and I used to summer on the lake with my foster family. I'll be staying in Repose for the next few months, at least through the New Year.

I'm looking for at least part-time employment in town. I have a degree in history and can handle all types of clerical work. I'm also available for shop assistant positions, odd jobs, and manual labor. If anyone is looking for seasonal workers, I could also take a position for the holidays. Thanks in advance for any leads.

[Ren]
I still think we should talk. I've learned some things you might want to know. Not about your parents and only indirectly related to Uncle Luke. But it's not the sort of thing that we should discuss on a forum like this.

Also I haven't spoken to your family.

[While the Shadow's activity in the Capital had been sporadic over the last handful of years, it had been consistently there. As of earlier this week, however, it ceases. There is some speculation among the small cadre of fans/haters, but the police, if they know anything, say they don't. But, no proper conspiracy theorist would believe that.

Separately, around 2AM on Thursday morning, there's an explosion by the Capital docks. After first responders clear the scene, it's determined the detonation happened remotely, sending an old shipping container up in smoke, and there's nothing likely salvagable. There are no bodies, as far as authorities can tell. At this time, they do not think there is a link to any terrorist activity, and cite what is likely some manner of gang tussle. That is all.]

Popping off with Patrick for a bit. Sorry we'd no chance to catch up, but things are a bit urgent back home. I hope Repose treats you better this time 'round. I'll let you know when I'm back. Behave until then as best you can.

[It is delivered to Ren's place of business, since Patrick does not have an address. The letter arrives at the coffee shop in an envelope, addressed to Adrian March, c/o Ren Solitaire. Inside, in Patrick's familiar scrawl:]

My bro,

I am old-fashioned, as you know, and therefore am writing this on paper and with a pen. I wanted to let you know that I am returning to Arborlon. There is something I did not take care of there that must be taken care of definitively before I can return to life here to build a life. I expect Newt will come with me, though that choice will be his to make. I would have come to see you, but you are inside a trunk, dude, and perhaps I did not wish to have a bad interaction with you before returning home. This does not mean I expect bad things to occur, but one never knows.

Take care of yourself until I return,
your bro.


[Written on the outside, a note to Ren:]

Ren, take care of him, man. - P.

[A bright white light illuminates the Repose sky on Tuesday evening. For those in the know, the light is a holy light, and it shrouds the town for a full minute, coating the entire sky in a pure and unbroken light that shines in windows and makes the entire town fog-white for the duration. For those without religious or supernatural abilities, it's just a blinding light, and the Next Door app is flooded with comments about UFOs, aliens, and the local military base. Videos are uploaded, and storm hunters and supernatural enthusiasts will likely flood the town for a few days after seeking a point of origin. The only noticeable thing that happens during the light is that the two boys that live on the lake are nowhere to be seen afterwards, but they spend a lot of time out of town, and so it's not that disconcerting.]

Hello, Heath. We chatted a bit a few weeks ago. My family knew yours about a decade ago, if that sounds familiar.
