Hi. My name is Wanda Maximoff, and I have been here ... almost a month, I think. Several people who have been here longer than I have, have been kind enough to share with me what they know of this place, and believe me – I am grateful. So, thank you, again, to everyone.

Anyway, as it is, I hate feeling powerless – my abilities are not what they were back home – and being stuck on what is an alien planet, so in an attempt to feel like I am better prepared for certain things, would anyone please be willing to train me in more hand to hand combat and be a sparring partner? I know I am out of practice with using what I do know without the addition of my stronger abilities back on my home planet. In exchange for your time and efforts, I can help you out with any of your own tasks that you might need or want help with.

Why would you throw a knife?

I have never done that.
I meant fighting with a knife. Up close.

We will start with sticks. I have a knife of my own. While you learn you can look for one too.

This is one of the smarter posts I've seen.

I was trained by the best that my country had to offer. But I'll warn you. Any concept of fair play is out the window.

Oh, all sorts of subjects seem to come up. They try to be helpful, but there's only so much that crossing your fingers and knowing which slimes are edible can do.

I have high hopes for you already. You mentioned your abilities back in your world. What were they?

Well, who needs to know how to throw a punch when you can just toss someone into the wall with your mind. Still, there's a satisfaction that comes with it. I hope you'll appreciate it.

I'm Jack.

Her name is Michelle, eldest by a hair.

She is goodness incarnate. Sometimes I wonder how we're related at all.

She isn't here, and I wouldn't wish her here. But she would certainly make the best of it.

Maybe you'll see him again. I'm not sure how much this planet really cares about our wishes.

wouldn't be surprised if we all have our long stories to tell.

in any case, it's enough experience to pass on to others. suppose that's one good thing about it.

whatever works for you. have all the time in the world here.
but just to make this easier, how about tomorrow afternoon by the river?

[She figures two people "fighting" within or near the camp is probably not the best idea. The old crew members are skittish enough as it is.]
