While you are not required to use any of the following codes while posting to the network, we have collected several that you are free to use if you so choose. As a reminder, the Retrospec network may be accessed from any internet-capable device and is accessible even when the internet cannot be accessed. Posts are visible to NPCs if they are shown them, though they cannot join the network and are incapable of noticing anything odd being discussed or shown. Posts may be private to groups, but anything that is private to one person only should be put in IC inboxes instead. Please remember to warn for content. You can find our Retrospec guide over here.

Codes can be found beneath the cut. Simply replace anything in CAPSLOCK with the requested information. Some codes modified from [community profile] cawaii.

[ This post shows up in the late afternoon on the 14th, under the user named Queen: ]

I'd say "happy Valentine's" but this application has currently ruined the holiday in the worst possible way. Why couldn't we have had forced blind dating? Or even Cupid arrow shenanigans? I would have liked either of those.

So, a quick set of inquiries. There are still sane people on the app that haven't gone obsessive crazy, right? Or know someone that can help with self defense... I kind of need it now.

I need help.

I just tried to leave my house to go to school and my vision suddenly... just POOF. Gone. Everything went black. Like someone blindfolded me, but there was nothing there. I managed to get back inside and it stopped. Which is how I'm able to type this.

It happened yesterday as well, and from what I can tell... it just happens when I'm outside. If I'm inside, I can see. So... until this stops (I REALLY HOPE IT STOPS, BECAUSE I CANNOT THINK OF HOW TO EXPLAIN THIS TO A DOCTOR. SITUATIONAL VISION LOSS?) I need some help getting around.

Starting with getting to school in the next 30 minutes.

I need a job!
(I know this isn't the best time or venue for something like this, and I'm very sorry; if I thought I had any other options, I'd take them.) (But if you do happen to know of other options I have, I'd be grateful to hear about them)

I need to be upfront that there are some pretty severe limitations on what I can actually do, which are not covered by the ADA and are the reason I wasn't able to continue in my last job...
Basically, I can't be seen, heard, or directly sensed in any way by regular people who aren't Retrospec users. So anything that's customer facing or that requires any contact beyond e-mail or something with, like... anyone... is not... super... possible? lol

But obviously there are still a lot of things I can do! And I'm not picky at all. If you want me to do something, and I'm capable of doing it, I will. With almost no exceptions. (That is, I don't really have any pride or dignity, but I do have some scruples. So any crimes you want me to commit will have to be victimless!) (In case any police officers are reading this, that part was a joke)

  • Several years' experience as a barista
    • Tea brewing (taught by a true expert!)
    • Proficiency with latte art
  • CPR and first aid certification
  • Volunteer experience in a hospital setting
  • Numerous vague memories of serving as a housekeeper, cook, and personal assistant in an alternate timeline
  • Numerous memories of serving as a shinigami, field surgeon, and all-purpose drudge in a past lifetime

Education (currently on hold)
  • On track to graduate cum laude with B.A. in sociology from Recollé University (11 credits short)
  • Acceptance to Recollé University School of Medicine (deferred)

Special skills/abilities
  • Healing magic
  • Limited floating
  • Phasing through solid objects
  • Sword can perform exorcisms (?)

I'm open to full-time, part-time, temporary, one-time gigs... or honestly anything at all!

I look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks for your time.

[Normally, Xiaolang doesn't do this.

Normally, Xiaolang's much more tight-lipped about his personal life, his romantic matters, because... well. He's a fourteen year old boy, an easily embarrassed one at that, and he'd die before giving people ammo to tease him with!!

But his amplified Wood Monkey traits-- hard-working, curious, and communicative-- has worn down his barriers quite a bit, leading him to post something under li xiaolang that he's probably going to regret come the twilight hours:]

What's something good to do with someone for Valentine's Day? Or what's something romantic you'd like someone to do for you?

[... ... ... is he making a Valentine's date idea list? Yes. Is he going to try to do all of them? EXTRA YES.]

[As if confusion over her memories wasn't bad enough with just the two, she's already got a third and about a billion questions as a result. Maybe that's why, once she's fretted for a few minutes after waking up, she finally goes to the one thing that might have some answers.

Her username is Lily and her icon is still a red dragon lady crinum.


So like

Is it possible to remember things from different lives?

[That's basically the only explanation she can think of here.]

[Hey Retrospec, I hope you're having a good morning. And if you aren't, well...there's kitty posters that are designed to deal with just that. Hang in there, buckos. But for those of you that ARE, Crow's going to take to the network.

You know those traits that are all the craze and amplifying themselves? Well Crow's got em full swing, and his desire to help out his younger friends overpowers all else--in both everyday life and love lives. Unfortunately, it feeds right into his own self destructive behavior, so...

Signed in as BIG DECK ENERGY:]

Hey Retrospec-ers!

It's February, and you know what that means? Smmmoochessss? Hand holding. Candle light dinners~

It's a whole month dedicated to finding Mr. or Ms. Right, and with Valentine's day right smack in the center of the month, it's even generous enough to give you 2 weeks to buy discount candy. What could be better?

Well I'll tell ya

How about a date with my buddy, Rean Schwarzer? The guy had a pretty rough month in January and he's a little too shy to get out into the world and meet someone

He's about 5'8'', black hair, pretty good looking if I had to judge myself... He'll talk to you about anything and everything, and personality's got a little kick to it, if you're looking for excitement

i know we've all got enough on our plates right now but we've got another problem now
someone's been stalking me and leaving me messages for the past few days
i don't know if they're on the app or not but they must at least know about it bc they're leaving me messages in places i haven't been since i died
and no one who's off-app has noticed them
they're probably a serial killer judging on how much blood he's using
whoever it is they must be a threat to all of us
the faster we figure out who this is the faster we can get them taken care of and get back to dealing with vanderweele
if anyone recognizes the handwriting or who it might be, speak up

[ He attaches a series of photos:

One of a plain brick wall taken in an alley.

One of the front wall of City Hall.

One of the wall above a toilet--a few may recognize it as being from inside Eren's bathroom.

One of a door to a patient's room in the hospital.

One of the Recolle High School dumpster.

There is absolutely nothing notable or out of the usual in any of the photos. There is no handwriting to judge, and no blood in sight. ]

[this is the first time anyone's seen Anna around on the network since the beginning of the month, and the first time she's been back in the city since Saturday. she went on an adventure.]

Maybe stay away from Bosuma for a while.

Anyone know where to get eyepatches? Asking for a friend.

I've gotten a vague recollection of a whole lot of fire over the last while but to be honest the last two months are a blur to me. I've gotten a lot of things fixed up in my personal life but it feels like I've scarcely had a real conversation in all that time?

Sneaking suspicion my hair went back to brown, but I'm not dead certain there either!

Hi sure I've missed a lot. Anyone want to help me get to my kitchen I suddenly look ninety and feel sicker than a dog.

[Hello Retrospec. There's a new post showing up on the network from a name some of you might not recognize, though plenty of you may. Seems like someone got demoted recently given he's posting directly from another account instead of the official Retrospec one. The username, Z.C. appears attached and the photo sure is a picture of this guy. Surprise…? One may think the former liaison would have something important to say, but:]

Male, 29, back from the dead and also a long stint trapped somewhere I couldn't reach you guys. AMA.

[That's it. That's the post. It seems as though Mr. Carlisle still isn't back in the city of Recollé, but at least he can field questions and chat. Perhaps he'll even be able to answer a few questions about things that are occurring here...]

Does anyone know why people lose their memories when they lose their network access?

Uh. Kara's forgotten everything. I was out pouring snow on the fires, and then... yeah. Our dog's gone, too, but I guess it's because she got him from Retrospec. Most of my friends forgot, too. It feels pretty lonely around now, but... anyway, just letting you guys know.

This month certainly has been interesting so far, hasn't it. Joanne - I know you're not going to reply, dear heart, but you might want to place a moratorium on calling things "exciting" for the next short while, seeing as apparently it just curses the entire situation.

Though perhaps I'm biased in some way; after all, my body doesn't exactly play nicely with fire anymore.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not one for bolstering one's spirit; either you'll find your own fortitude in times like this or you won't, and bluntly put the direction you choose to take is of very little consequence to me. However, that isn't to say that it doesn't hold my interest; whether you've run screaming into the flames or avoided them, my question is one of progress. Not physical, as I have no doubt that we'll receive updates on whether what we're doing is truly enough or not – but rather internal.

Consider it a question of morale, I suppose. How we're holding up, how things are looking for the days to come. Whether we all hate ourselves a little less, if that's the sort of thing you have to report.

If nothing else, it seems an acceptable concern to have at the moment.

[...That is literally the most stilted "how is everyone doing, hope you're all having a happy crisis and not literally dying in a fire" that has ever been written, but you know what, it's going to have to work for now.]

DEREK MATTHEWS shared a photo.
JANUARY 2, 2019 near TISSE

So this is a trunk that is definately bigger on the inside. I can fit a lot of stuff in here and I got it at the end of the year along with all of this wizarding school supplies. (Which completes all of the things required to get for the school my other self went to as a first year). Like... I don't know what to do with it all, most of the books are blank:

1. Two sets of plain work robes (black)
2. One pair of protective gloves (dragon hide)
3. One winter cloak (black, with silver fastenings)
4. name tags.
5. One plain pointed hat (black)

Hope everyone else is enjoying the holidays. Mika and I are gonna go give out presents at the orphanage later on.

But ah, in light of that sort of thing. Regarding memories from this other life? How do you deal with those, when there are awful memories on happier times of the year like this? It's just such a difference in trying to juggle it? At least, for me with what I remember. Because it's kinda hard to get into things while remembering the apocalypse. Not that I'm not trying. But it doesn't make this easy.

[Okay. So he remembered that a while back now, but still. It's. Rough. Even if he's trying to do what he can to distract himself from dwelling on it, from joining in to try keep himself busy. Hence helping out at the orphanage. Even if he would be the least convincing Santa.]

With a little over one week left until everyone’s favorite holiday, and Retrospec has been surprisingly well-behaved this month… all things considered… I’m sure that many of us on here are in a rather festive mood. Which is why I’d like to draw attention to the fact that my birthday is on December 23rd, and any good will or kind wishes in the form of cash gifts would be preferred. I don’t celebrate Christmas, but it’s the “reason for the season” isn’t it?

hey so
this is james barnes
i'm not dead anymore
so if anyone was still freaking out about that, well
don't, i guess

[ this is not a thing he thought he had to state but, well, apparently word does not travel through the grapevine as well as he thought, so. he might as well state it to the whole app at large. ]

anyway, first off,
if anyone needs help shoveling sidewalks or cleaning driveways or whatever after that snowstorm, let me know
or if you need anything else done even if it isn't snow-related
i'll do whatever you need for some cash and/or some clothes

second off,
does anyone know where i can get a fake id
i just need to replace the id stuff i lost when i died
message me privately if you don't want to talk openly on here

third off,
i got some new stuff about the founders i think

[ insert a link to a video here. ]
this is from that cavendish house last month
there was an empty book in there and i wrote down everything i knew about them and then this reenactment thing started happening
not sure how much of this is new vs old but apparently this is how it went down forever ago at the start of all this
i'm not sure how this fits into everything else we have so far

With everything seeming to have blown over from the last few months, I figure I should make my services known.

I'm Aramaki and I'm a Private Investigator that specializes in missing persons, fraud and identity theft. The RPD has used my services and I have been hired as an investigator for cases for several law offices here in Recolle. Like many of you I was ...indisposed, shall we say, from events in the last few months and have been similarly unsettled by other recent events. Since my usual casework has dried up due to the end of year lull, I'm offering my assistance to folks until things pick up again.

I know that there has been conversation; that some of us are remembering things differently than their friends and family who are also on the app. If anyone has a particular person or event that they are looking for records on, feel free to reach out.

Personally, I am also looking for information on events in the last two months.

If anyone has information relating to the mass haunting we experienced last month, I'm trying to get the tidbits shared from the ghosts into one file.

There is also the matter of the virus in October. I am decently sure I was in the first group of infected and I am trying to see if there are any commonalities between those in the originating group.

If anything in the above is relevant to you, please leave a message at this number.
