Some of you know this already, but I thought it was important to let everyone else know that my brother, River, isn't here anymore. He was the beautiful white dragon, but the first time he was here, we were born together. I called him my little brother, but you know, I think he was much, much older than he looked. It doesn't make sense, scientifically, but still...it's just something I feel.

I miss him very much, of course, but he couldn't be free here, and I think he needed to. The last day I saw him, he wanted to give me a ride on his back—and no, dragon vocal chords aren't very suited for speech, but we understood each other—and it was so fun! I felt so light, and it was a beautiful day. I was really happy. Afterward, he set me down and I hugged him, and he went back into the sky, and he was gone.

It isn't that he found a way out of the glass. I know he wasn't that high. Sometimes people just sort of 'poof' out of here, and that's what happened, but I like to think that he's back where he came from, and he can fly really free now, as high into the sky as he wants to. It's very logical that that's where he would go when he's not here.

Anyway, I just wanted to share with all of you. Please don't forget River.

It looks like we've got so many new faces lately! It's very nice to meet you all, even if we haven't met yet. My name is Rosalind, and I'm the head scientific investigator for the Watch. I work for Mr. Stoneface, who is a very nice man but very tough, so don't break the laws, okay? There aren't very many, so it shouldn't be hard. But if you do, please try to leave some evidence for me to examine.

[Written hastily after a few minutes]

I can't believe I almost forgot! Speaking of the Watch, we really need a Watch house to work out of. That's what Mr. Stoneface says. Since the other members of the Watch are so good at their jobs, I don't always need to analyze evidence for them, so I volunteered to take charge of fundraising so we can build one! Um. Only I've never done anything like that before, so...maybe everyone could share ideas here? And we can decide on the best ones! Remember, a housed Watch is an effective Watch!

Hello Rosalind. I'm Kid, one of the new faces around lately. I didn't know River before he [pauses] poofed out of here.

Can I ask you a question? These laws you mentioned--are they the normal things like don't steal?

Hi, Kid! Are you getting along okay? This isn't such a bad place, even though some bad things happen.

Yes, exactly. We had an official vote and everything; you can't attack or kill anyone, steal anything, or burn anything down.

I'm getting along well, thank you. I still have to find a job, but I haven't gotten lost yet.

What luck. I wasn't planning on doing any of those sorts of things.

I'll do everything I can to keep him in my heart too. And I hope you're right--he should be somewhere that he can fly without anything in his way but the top of the sky.

From: [identity profile] blindedmewith.livejournal.com
I bet that's what he's doing right now. I bet he can go really high.

From: [identity profile] feathered-earth.livejournal.com
Yeah. That's just what a dragon is supposed to do.

From: [identity profile] blindedmewith.livejournal.com
Sometimes! He's been here twice—the first time he was mostly a boy, but this time he was always a dragon. I still recognized him, though.

[Leaving aside the River issue, because she's seen Rosalind work through it. However, there will be extra helpings of dessert at dinner today.]

We could do something like the party at the Park again, though it'd probably have to be indoors. Maybe a little more like a proper ball this time?

That's right, it's getting a little colder. Oh! Like prom?

[Chocolate with a side of chocolate. :P]

Prom?

Well, I'm trying to think of an indoor space we could use. We could maybe sell tickets at very reasonable prices? And relax dress code a little, I'm sure not everyone has a ball gown in the back closet.

Someone did host a ball once before as a fundraiser, yeah.

Also, hi Rosalind, this is Smoke. I saw you in passing during that last incident.

Hi, Mr. Smoke. That was pretty messy, wasn't it? I'm glad our system worked, even if it shouldn't have had to.

Pleased to meet you, Miss(?) Rosalind. I am not strictly a new face, as I have been here for two months, but I do not believe we have communicated before. What you wrote about the Watch interests me. If you do not mind sharing, what facilities would this Watch house be equipped with?

That's right, I'm a miss! Not a Mrs.

Hmm...well, we'd need some offices, and a break and locker room for the officers, and a few cells. Not for the big crimes, but when people drink too much or steal small things.

From: [personal profile] lingeringlegacy
Are there no plans for installation of a system of sorts so that watchfolk can telecommunicate faster than having to go door-to-door in case of emergencies?
