At long last, the first of the missing have come home, and it’s clear where everyone has disappeared to. After going to Earth on New Years Day, Adrian Jeffers was missing from Ever After for over half of a month, but only spent about three hours on Earth with his sister. He is the first to have left after the New Year, and the first to have come home, leaving experts studying the portal to believe what we had always feared to be true; the portal being open for such an extended period of time has had detrimental effects after all. The change of the year seems to have spurred a time discrepancy between the worlds.
We eagerly await the returns of all the other missing town members, and strongly advise that nobody else travels to Earth until experts have performed ample testing to find out the problem has been solved.
Stay safe, Ever After, and as always, we will be your source of all information.
Since the New Year, we have been getting reports of members of the community going missing, the reports coming more and more frequently and usually from people that would have no reason to leave, such as loyal and loving parents, spouses, and significant others. Friends and loved ones of the missing are growing frantic with worry. We spoke to Schuyler Emmons, whose boyfriend Adrian Jeffers has been missing since New Years Day, after he said he’d be going to Earth to visit his sister.
“I- I have no clue where he’s gone. I don’t think he’s left us, he was happy with me and our daughter, and he loved working… I’m sick with worry, I don’t know how else to look for him at this point, it’s been two weeks…”
Reports from others have been similar.
If you have any information or ideas as to where any of the missing are, please let us and the police station know, and we’ll be sure to tell everyone any updates we hear.
It’s the worst epidemic that Ever After has seen yet - Norovirus. Last Wednesday, a resident of Ever After returned from Earth carrying the virus from a sick family member, and now it’s spreading around the island quickly.
Because healing is sped up so much here, the virus lasts for 24 hours, but it’s a dreadful 24 hours of vomiting and pain. If you or a friend or family member has the virus, please take all precautions to either keep them at home, or bring them directly to the hospital! Do not go out in public until you have stopped vomiting for more than 24 hours, to keep from spreading the virus any further. This virus is highly contagious, and even those living in the same house can get it easily.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the hospital at any time, day or night. Stay healthy and stay safe!
Something strange has been happening in Ever After, as if Ever After on its own isn’t quite strange enough (to newcomers at least, for the rest of us it’s all fine any normal here).
Usually, it’s only possible for our inhabitants to travel to the Living Earth on Halloween of each year. That is, after all, how Halloween even came about - they were trying to scare us away, thinking us to be the terrifying ghosts of their stories. It hasn’t worked yet though, of course.
The actual reason for Halloween Day, October 31st, to be the only day possible has always been unknown, and was discovered accidentally as someone innocently walked down The Dock, the same dock that the ship bringing everyone to Ever After arrives at. The same happened across all the islands, and those transported wound up at the nearest public transportation area where they wanted to go, whether it be another dock, a train station, or a bus stop.
For some reason, and the reason is being researched, it’s now possible to travel to the Living Earth at any time desired, simply by walking down The Dock. Why now, so suddenly? We’d like to know as well, and we’ll be keeping you updated with anything we find out. Until then, please exercise caution should you decide to travel between the worlds. So far, similar rules to Halloween Day apply, such as needing to be back by midnight of the day you left, or you’ll be brought back at the exact stroke, in Ever After’s time zone. As always, don’t dispel too much information about Ever After, as those living should not know of life here until they get here for themselves. Do not visit anyone you have a feeling may not be able to mentally handle the deceased coming back, as that can have obvious terrible affects on them. And, above all, don’t grow too sure of the ability to travel between our Earths, as we have no clue how long this ability will last for.
As always, refer to The Ever After Times as your source of information.
Noah Johnson and Annabelle Gleason would like to invite all of Ever After to their wedding!
All that wish to go may do so, purely for the celebration and happiness of a wedding. The ceremony will be held at the church, and the reception afterwards at the beach, which will last until everyone decides to go home. So, help Noah and Anna celebrate their wedding by attending!
On March 31st, we brought you news of a breakout from the prison.
We are now glad to inform you that all prisoners have been recovered and returned to the prison. More prison guards have been hired and it is now under maximum security to insure no other breakouts can occur. Ever After is safe once again.
The Ever After Police Department would like to thank everyone that helped make this recovery possible, especially those that volunteered. Most notably they would like to thank the team lead by Evan Evans of brave men and women that had previously served in the military (listed below), as they together found the largest amount of prisoners.
ATTENTION! BREAKING NEWS!
Attention all citizens of Ever After! It is regrettable to inform you that the prison has been broken out of. Please, stay in your homes, because it was not just one…or two escapees. All of them have disappeared, and are thought to be dispersing throughout the entire place. Don’t panic, though. There are plenty of police officers that are helping in the case. But just in case, all of us here at the newspaper would advise to lock your doors in the mean time.
It’s that time of year again, folks! Happy Saint Patrick’s Day— the one day a year where everyone in Ever After can pretend to be Irish and drink to their little heart’s desires. The party of the year takes place in the basement of the observatory, where you can make all of the destructive decisions your heart desires. Join us! It’s always a laugh!
Two of our newest residents, Noah Johnson and Annabelle Gleason (killed together by a drunk driver), have just had twins mere days after arriving. It’s not often that we see actual births here in Ever After, so this is extremely exciting. The elated parents have named their children Bradyn Nicholas and Elizabeth “Elsie” Kailey Johnson. Help us welcome these beautiful bundles of joy!
