I won't pretend to be surprised. Lot of people I've known have shown up already.

But. [ She's quiet for a long moment. ] There are a few who haven't arrived yet. Mother - are you out there?

[ ooc: Fourth wall post! Please don't spoil Lin for the end of S1, but otherwise anything goes. ]

I don't like this. I know I'm not the first person to say that this month, and I won't be the last. We were dealing with a possibly militant rebellion at home and it didn't feel as dangerous as this month has been. Probably because I had the illusion of control in Republic City. I refused to believe that terrible things could happen under my watch. That's something I've inherited from my mother - overconfidence.

Jinora's gone, at least there's that. But of course the rest of Korra's friends have shown up instead, young and angry and ready to get into the middle of a mess that they have no business in. I understand the desire to go home, but there's only so many times you can break a brick against the wall before it starts to come back at you. Of course, none of the are sensible about it. I wouldn't be surprised if they joined the rebellion. I probably would have, when I was young and too impatient to wait for justice. Tenzin is here, but he's too soft to be much of a babysitter. And I am not going to co-parent with him. If I wanted to do that--

[ There is a sudden quick click. Yep. Lin is completely done talking, as much good as that's going to do her now. ]

[ There's another click, followed by a mutter -- ] Better delete... Oh. Of course. It published. Great.

I need to borrow someone else's armor. I'm not bending mine out of shape for this.

Hmph.

At least my bending still works.

[ ooc: Open action for any roommates at home or anyone who might run into Lin (in unfortunately mismatched armor; also, a dude) on the street. ]

[ There have been a lot of people on the network today that sound like they are talking to themselves. Unfortunately, this post is not an exception. Perhaps one of the voices is a bit colder, a bit sharper. Perhaps not. ]

I don't understand why we're still here.

What do you expect me to do? There are no gates to open. We're stuck in the City until we leave.

I expect you not to give up. Then again, this is you. Former police chief. Unable to rescue your men, unable to live up to your mother's legacy. Unable to keep your partner from straying.

[ The sound of a fist hitting wood. Lin is very, very tired of her unwanted visitor. ] I had no choice. You know that. Just as I've no choice but to stay here.

So you say, Miss Bei Fong. Maybe one day you'll believe it. [ The Other Lin is casually cruel. We're always hardest on ourselves, aren't we? ]

You only exist because of a curse. I don't have to listen to you. Go away.

Oh, but the network has to listen to us, does it? You realize your device is recording? Of course not. You're still not very good with--

[ This is when the recording cuts off abruptly. ]

[ ooc: Brown is Ideal(?) Lin, standard text is regular Lin. Open to action for roommates; they are standing in the kitchen. Voice for everyone else. ]

[ There is a kind of careful neutrality in Lin's voice right now. ]

Roommates: I am escorting Korra down to the station to answer a few questions.

And then I am going to yoga. [ She needs to relax. ]

[filtered to police force]

Got another stabber coming in. Woman at the hospital reported it. I thought we should at least follow up, make sure it was curse-related.

I can't work this one for personal reasons, anyone want to take it?

[ ooc: Korra stabbed Chekov, Uhura reported it, and Lin's bringing her in. Yep. ]

Just what we needed: a further invasion. Keep it orderly. There is law enforcement here, and you don't get a free ride because you're new.

[action]

[ You can find Lin out and about doing depressingly mundane things like directing traffic and attempting (poorly) to calm worried temporary citizens. ]

[ She totally should have made this post ages ago, but she's still not sure she knows how this device works. She only hopes that she manages to actually send her message out. ]

I would like to join the police force in an official capacity. [ As opposed to being unofficially on duty all the time. ] I believe I spoke to a few members of the force last time I posted here. Could someone inform me of the necessary procedures? I'm afraid I can't provide any references, but somehow I doubt that that is a problem here.

[ But now, here is the other question that she really wanted to ask. ] The prison on the island, the one raised a few weeks ago. Has anyone determined why it has appeared? We don't seem to need it now that the ghouls have gone.

This is Bei Fong of the Republic City police. I need someone listening in on this line to answer a few questions.

Let's start with an easy one. Where am I?
