[The confused expression of Amanda appears on the screen.]

...Hello? Nick? ...Eli? ...Ginn?

[She turns her head slightly looking at her surroundings.]

If you’re getting this I don’t know what happened. This isn’t—

[Her gaze focuses back on the camera and she appears worried.]

Could the--This isn’t Destiny or HomeWorld Command. If anyone else is getting this and has some information about this place I would appreciate it.

[The feed cuts away.]

(ooc: Completely open to action if anyone wants.)
A little lost

Easier said than done, but try to put yourself at ease and take a seat.

It's a long explanation isn't it? I just don't understand this--

[Amanda frowns.]

Tell me.

You're not... to return to your home for a while. And a fair number of unpleasant things will happen to you.

And that's... that.
1st-Jan-2012 11:49 pm (UTC) - Re: [ video ]
For a while? But I can't be here. I have to get back to--I wonder if it's a glitch even so...Unpleasant things? What kind of unpleasant things?

What is this place exactly?
1st-Jan-2012 11:51 pm (UTC)
I don't - why don't you have some water from... somewhere. You'll want it.
1st-Jan-2012 11:56 pm (UTC)
You don't what exactly? ...Water? But I'm not really thirsty at the moment.

[Amanda just slumps down once again looking at her surroundings. It doesn't even resemble where she used to be.]

2nd-Jan-2012 12:13 am (UTC)
Water. For your nerves.

[ a bit of a pause, as he tries to find his words. ]

I don't know where this is. You won't find home easily. And unpleasant things happen to everyone here.
2nd-Jan-2012 12:27 am (UTC)

[She's taking deep breaths for the moment.]

Okay so unknown place where bad things happen. Sounds...How long have you found yourself here for?

[A blonde girl comes on screen from what appears to be a clothing store.]

Definitely not Destiny or HomeWorld Command. It's called The City. Doesn't make a lotta sense I know.
2nd-Jan-2012 12:29 am (UTC) - Re: Video
...The City? It doesn't even sound sensible. Terrible things happen, I've heard. Do you know anything about this, Miss?

[Amanda appears to be frowning trying to figure all this out.]
2nd-Jan-2012 12:38 am (UTC) - Video
Tyler. Rose Tyler. You can just call me Rose though. Don't mind.

Sometimes, yeah. We get these curses. Lately they've been all right though. Some people got sick and had bright red noses a few days ago. We had a blizzard, bunch of us wrote letters to Santa. Some people robbed stores and the like. I think most of it was given back since it was a curse. There was mistle toe all over the City and everybody was kissin' everybody.

S'not so bad as some people make out. I think the City's brilliant. [She's in the minority though.]
2nd-Jan-2012 12:46 am (UTC) - Re: Video
Rose. And where do you hail from, Rose?

That is just...[There's a pause as she mulls all this over. It's all just beyond weird. Not that hasn't experienced weird before but that is just a whole other level.] Very bizarre.

Oh? Unable to go home though. That is troubling. Why do you find the City brilliant, Rose?
2nd-Jan-2012 01:31 am (UTC) - Video
London, England 2008. What's your name then? And where you from?

[Rose presses her lips together before she answers.]

Yeah, don't like that we can't leave. Bit of a problem but I've got mates here that I thought I'd lost back home.
2nd-Jan-2012 01:47 am (UTC) - Re: Video
Oh...Temporal displacement.

[Her expression grows more troubled. This is really not good.]

I'm Dr. Amanda Perry. But you can call me Amanda. And I'm from...

[There's a pause from her.]

I'm from 2010. I was aboard the Destiny. But I am from America.

Ah. How very fortunate for you, Rose.
2nd-Jan-2012 02:00 am (UTC) - Video
It happens here. [That's meant to be comforting but Rose is fairly sure it isn't. Not if Amanda is anything like the Doctor and it sounds like she might be.]

S'nice to meet you, Amanda.

[Rose nods a bit] Yeah. Lucked out here. You'll be all right though. People are lovely here. Helpful and kind, y'know?
2nd-Jan-2012 02:19 am (UTC) - Re: Video
Yes I am sure that it does...[There's a pause as it's all still sinking in. Surely Nick would've noticed her being missing and that troubles her most of all, especially after recent events. She snaps out of her thoughts to focus back on Rose. She gives the woman a small smile.]

Nice to meet you as well, Rose.

Well it seems that way so far. Tell me these curses that hit, can they be avoided?
2nd-Jan-2012 02:55 am (UTC) - Video
Far as I can tell, there's no way to avoid 'em. Some of the dangerous sorta ones that affect the whole City can be avoided by stayin' in your flat I guess.

I see others have already explained the City to you, somewhat. I have a guide that I believe I can share with you; would you care for it?
2nd-Jan-2012 09:01 pm (UTC) - Re: voice;
There's a guide? Yes, please. Whatever which can help me understand this place better, thank you. I have to ask is this place really that bleak as others make it sound?
2nd-Jan-2012 10:14 pm (UTC) - voice;
I'm afraid I haven't been here as long as some others, but - yes, generally, it seems it is.

[There's a moment as he attaches the guide he received from Ariadne.]

Did that work?
2nd-Jan-2012 10:25 pm (UTC) - Re: voice;
Oh perfect. Thank you so much.

I don't think I caught your name? My name is Amanda.
3rd-Jan-2012 01:09 am (UTC) - voice;
Percy. It's nice to meet you, ma'am.
3rd-Jan-2012 01:24 am (UTC) - Re: voice;
Pleased to meet you as well, Percy. Where do you come from?
4th-Jan-2012 12:49 am (UTC) - voice;

[It's easier to say than 'Ottery St. Catchpole, which you've never heard of, which is in Devon, which you've also probably never heard of.']

And yourself?

Ah. Another Londoner.

[She doesn't really have to think about it as saying Destiny would just complicate things. So she settles on...]
