[btr] [unfortunately public]

When I was six, my older sister shoved me down a hill into a pile of broken glass because I could play the violin better than she could. The glass caused severe lacerations on my face and I also broke my arm.

I've always told people that the scars on my face were because of an "accident", but in reality the only accidental part about it was that my sister wasn't expecting the broken beer bottles to be there.

Considering that we are potentially going to be talking about security issues, I thought it best that we move this discussion to a separate page in my journal, where I have better control over the locks.

Now then. I am sure that you've gathered from my posts that my name is Mio Hongo. Please call me Mio--I only force Ms. Hongo on people I don't actually like.

Anyway, getting back to the real reason I wanted to talk to you: I'd like to offer you a job at Torchwood. You seem to be familiar with the organization, so I'll save you the usual recruiting spiel, but the gist of it is that I'm short on personnel right now, especially ones who are experienced in combat. Given your last name, I really don't think there's any question of your qualifications on that front.

The benefits aren't stellar, but you'll get monthly pay and access to Torchwood's armory, among other things.

You don't need to make a decision right away, but I though I'd put that out there.

I've managed to get some information about the CLF case that I think everyone should know about. This is sensitive enough that I would prefer to discuss this in person at a secure location and not over the journal network.

What time would be best for everyone? Also, I would prefer to meet outside of the Kashtta, as it is a known center of Wanderer activity; Josef, Sonny, would it be possible to use one of the back rooms at either the Crowbar or the club?

Gwen -

I haven't seen or heard from you lately, so I thought I'd check in and see how you are doing. I know losing the baby was really rough on you, so I've been trying to give you some space, but it's been long enough that I've really begun to get worried about you.

Please contact me, whether it be by journal, cell, or in person. Please don't be afraid to call any hour of the day or night.

Following up on the conversation we were having before in Phoebe's journal:

I actually have reason to believe there is a force or forces at work to keep most of the non-supernatural population from noticing the supernatural. There have been a number of large-scale disasters in the past that were clearly of supernatural origin--the destruction of the Conrad Hotel, for one, and the Ten Plagues that occurred in the fall of 2009, for another--but most of the residents of the city just can't seem to even consider the possibility of a supernatural origin for these events. Occurrences such as rivers of blood and frogs falling from the sky violate a number of laws of nature as we know them, but while non-supernaturals will notice and react to the events as they are happening, only few days later they seem to have almost forgotten.

Unfortunately, when the other residents of the city do notice what's going on, there is often a violent backlash, leading to the rise of terrorist groups such as the CLF. It's all to easy for people try to blame supernatural occurrences on the supernatural community. The fact that many people don't recognize us for what we are actually gives us a degree of safety, odd as it may sound.

Would you like a hokora (祠) for your journal in the subbasement? Or some other type of shrine to house it?

If you don't want one, what kind of Year End gift would you prefer?

What in the name of the Inverted Pyramid of Klah happened earlier at the party? I could hear that girl's panic through my shields! (Granted, they're not quite back up to full strength yet, but even so...)

How are you feeling?  Sorry I didn't contact you yesterday, but I was pretty much out until late in the evening and then that blackout happened.

I'm feeling mostly better physically now, although my shields are still shot to hell and I've got a moderately annoying lingering headache and a touch of photophobia still, but that's about it aside from the muscle weakness.  {{OOC: Funny how Mio describes that as "mostly better." 9.9}} I'll need to be on a high-calorie, high-protein diet for the next couple of days to gain back my energy.  I really overdid it this time.

You still up for talking?

Greetings, everyone.  If I haven't met you yet, name is Mio Hongo.  On behalf of Torchwood, I would like to invite everyone to a dinner to welcome our new residents on Monday, May 17, at 6:30 pm in the cafeteria.

If you have any special dietary considerations, please let me know so I can arrange to have food available that suits your needs.

RSVP not required.

I was thinking about having Torchwood host a welcoming dinner for the new residents on Monday night.  It would give the new residents an opportunity to meet the members of Torchwood, and vice versa. 

It would also be a good opportunity to get everyone in one place so I can start assigning things like cleaning duties.  With over thirty people living in the Kashtta now, common areas will get messy very quickly if we aren't proactive about such things.

What do you think?

This is Mio Hongo of Torchwood Chicago.  If you haven't seen the news yet, there's been a major Rift event this afternoon, at approximately 12 pm.  The Conrad has been destroyed by a newly opened rift.

Please respond here with whether or not you are injured, and an approximate location of where you are, if you know, so rescuers can better find you.  If there are other people in your vicinity that are unable to respond to this entry, please update us with your status as well.

Please respond here as well stating you are all right so we know not to try to look for you.

  If you can fight, bring weapons.  There are a large number of monsters pouring out of the newly opened Rift. We also badly need medical personnel and those who can shift rubble.  Please report to the nearest Torchwood Chicago member when you get to the scene and we will give you a job.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

I feel like doing a bit of cooking tonight.  If there's anything you'd like me to make, I'm open to suggestions.  I'm a fairly accomplished cook, so feel free to suggest something a bit complicated--I could use a challenge.

At any rate, there will be enough to share, so stop by the kitchen around 6:30 if you want food.
