[After a long month spent gathering information, pouring over the guide to the Tower he found, and generally just trying to gather his bearings, Mello decides to turn to the network at long last. He never did like the idea of a completely solitary investigation.]

How's it going, Tower? Everyone been having fun? Great. Down to business.

First off, let me say that you're just about the craziest bunch of kidnapping victims I've ever had the displeasure of living with.

I mean, come on. Weddings? Birthday celebrations? I know that people have an innate need to try and make unmanageable situations as normal as possible, but surely there are better things you all could be doing with your time.

Now, this might come as a shock, but I'm not content to sit here and leave myself to the mercy of my kidnappers. I've already read that guide that some of you have put together, so don't bother explaining how dangerous the place is to me, or how there's no way out, or blah, blah, blah. However, if anyone has info on hand that hasn't yet been added to the guide, feel free to cough it up. If our hosts have allowed you to write up that guide in the first place, I'm sure they won't mind my asking for a little more elaboration, right?

Information is key, especially in a place where nothing seems to make sense. I fully intend to make use of it and find a way out. You're free to join me, if any of you are up for it.

All right, now time for a question.

I've heard that we all come from different worlds. That isn't normally something I'd believe, but since I've arrived here, I've seen a ton of strange things, so I'll bite. In the interest of finding out which "universe" I'm from, give me an answer: have any of you heard of a mass murderer named Kira? He kills people - criminals - with heart attacks. Just in case any of you are from one of those "alternate timelines" and Kira hasn't yet reared his ugly head, have any of you heard of a detective named L?

I tried writing down what the sun felt like in case I forgot again. Tried, at least.

Could you tell me a little about your worlds, if you don't mind sharing?

So since tonight seems to be the night for asking questions I got a few for people.

The first is if anyone else here has been to a place like this before. I don't mean the Tower exactly, but something like it: a great big place full of suffering and idiotic, pointless crap meant to torture a bunch of people from different dimensions. I just got out of one to get here so lucky me, but I've met at least one other person who was in a different one. I'm just curious how many places there can be to torture someone.

The second is if anyone has ever met themselves. Like a full on copy of themselves to the tee, aside from a few minor details. And is just amazed to realize how much of a bastard they are.

That out of the way, I consider myself a tinkerer. I'm good with technology and messing with electronic crap and mechanical crap and weapons.

What I'm getting at is that if you have something that needs maintenance I'm willing to look at it and, if I'm able, fix it. I'm not the best of the best, but I'd like to think I'm pretty good - like I'm top 20% material - so I can give it a try. Now I'm not some sucker who's going to do it for free - I expect something back, y'know. Like a favor or even something you have squirreled away I could use. If that's a problem hey remember you're taking part in furthering the aspirations of a young boy and helping his self esteem with his dream and yada yada yada. People love helping kids and crap right?

On that note if there's anyone who knows a lot about tech and machines and would be willing to teach me more about working on them...I'd be willing to pay for it. Dunno what it is since I don't have much, we can set that later cause I'm not getting suckered into anyone's debt. But if anyone could teach me, it'd help out and you'll be fondly remembered for expanding my genius. Which should be thanks enough, you ask me.

Hey, uh, this might be a strange question to ask considering our situation, but I might as well.

[There's an awkward looking teen just peering at the camera with a nervous laughter. It seemed that he's having second thoughts about asking this question when the camera turned on.]

What do you think of Christmas? W-well, since it's coming up and all...

[Immediately after this thread, Waver types up a text entry on the network. He doesn't really think about what he's saying, he just needs to warn as many people as possible.]

I assume most people here read this. This is important. Ryuunosuke Uryuu is from my world, and he's said he doesn't see a point in doing the same here, but nonetheless, I think everyone should be aware of any potential danger. If I said nothing and something happened...I would be partially to blame.

He was a serial killer - children, mostly.

[Even still the memory is terrible, and his hands shake as he types.]

I found where he kept the bodies. He calls it 'art'. I can't imagine anything worse than that scene. They didn't even look human anymore.

Just be careful. He seemed nice enough. That's the worst part.

Edit -

It was noted I should describe him rather than only give a name. He's tall, maybe 5'8", orange-brown hair, he has piercings in his ears, and his personality seemed to be helpful and amicable to me.

[that's only particularly tall to Waver...]
