This thread is where the action pertaining to the thread in the forums takes place at the Tree And Lobster pub and bar. all story interaction for that thread goes here.
G0lden will have admin rights to post to this thread as she sees fit.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING: This thread is a paralell universe story, after a session in secret with my fellow ship commander (G0lden), we have come to conclusion that the adventure written by all wil lbe a seperate universe but similar to our own, it will not be a past or future event (at least at this time) to any of the adventures currently in progress
Okay, I'm beginning the process of tranfering posts from the TnL Frink. Please note there will be some differences in the posts. First off your avi's and banners will not show up and I believe any pics in original posts will not show as well. I will note at each post original author of post. This process will take some time, so please don't post in this thread until I let you know it is clear to post. I will either IM you or send a message to all TnL Cantina members when I am finished transfers. So bear with me and I'll get this done as quickly as I can.
Thanks First Mate
Leaves Infirmary, new eyebrows firmly attatched and now fireproof!
Midnite sulking on shoulders, "Awwwww, don't be sad sweetie, I'm sure we can find something for you to burn."
Midnite raises her head and cheekily glances around for the Captain...
Don't even think of burning the captain midnite. I've got plans for you. How would you like to burn Winnie and her minnions? Repli and Ben both sleeping soundly on my head. Finally a little peace and quiet, those two have been bickering for the better part of the day over who was going sit where.
A grin lights up Midnite's face, can't repress a shudder at the evil-ness, I think she likes that plan...
Oh I know midnite will love what we in store for her. Plus midnite will come in handy for a few other missions. We have some gambling winnings to retrieve and the retrieval of excess taxes that the captain has paid.
Stop giving her ideas! Her evil smile is creeping me out!!!!!!!!!!!
On the other hand, she also makes a good fire-starter, or cigarette-lighter, for anyone on your crew who smokes. Though there's a 50/50 chance she'll just set fire to your face, she really doesn't like smokers...
That's why she's not getting around the captain. I have enough trouble keeping up with his cigar smoking and rum drinking. That smile of midnite's isn't, that is a flat smirk if ever I say one.
~I come in~
Hey guys, What's on the menu today? (its my first time here in this place)
Dude, I probably know less about this place than you do, but
First Mate, is there anywhere I can sleep aboard the ship, whilst awaiting my new quarters?
Never mind, I'm just going to curl up here and ...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Hey, keep that dragon my stargazing spot, will ya?
Hm, she is kind of cute. Midnite, eh?
Falls off the tables, how in heck did I get up there?
Glances around, quick check:
Nothing on fire -Check
No missing Body Parts -Check
Eyebrows & Hair not singed to a crisp -Check
Wait a minute, where is that devious little sapphire?
Oh, a note. "Have taken Midnite on short walk, -First Mate"
Glances casually at galley clock...
Leaps up hurriedly, Oh no! I slept right through Midnite's dinner time, she gets super-evil when she's hungry!
Lets loose the following: !$^#@$%^!@$# #$^%@#$^@%^@%^@**($#@!%@#!$@#%@$%%^%&$^@$@%#^&%*&*&(*&(*&*$&* [2 mins later] #$^%^&$@%&%&...*pant...pant*
Then rushes to find them before Midnite decides the First Mate looks delicious...
Don't worry I found something for midnite to eat for dinner. Amongst your belongings was a list of midnites preference for her meals. Midnite currently draped over shoulders and purring. Repli and Ben are whistling lullabys to midnite.
*Phew* Wipes sweaty forehead with back of tatty sleeve, very relieved!!!!!
So, is there somewhere, fire-proof, where we could stay until we're assigned our quarters, First Mate, sir?
Oh, and what kind of jobs can we do, besides the obvious fighting stuff?
I would like the usual for my quarters, a bookshelf with spell books, 3 cooling fans, a supply of sake, and a desk. I would like to be the crew's bookworm librarian if it helps. I would also like a shapeshifting weapon that can talk as my weapon of choice.
Wow, look at this, Midnite!
Midnite flys off my shoulders and alights on the bed....in the dead center of the bed....we're gonna have an issue here, sweetie...
Almost loss of eyebrows confirms that Midnite is currently comfortable and doesn't think moving is a 'hot' idea. Cute dragon face falls when she realises my eyebrows are now fireproof...but I don't like the way she's looking at my hair...
Slides into the bed and positions self around Midnite.
Half asleep, mmmm, wonder what time wake up is? *yawn*
Hope they don't have an alarm...last time you got scared, I lost my bond on that appartment. You've gone to the bathroom, had a drink, done everything that you need to before I get into this bed and get comfortable?
Small dragon tongue licking cheek, urgent look in eyes,
*sigh* You didn't go, did you?
Sad Quivery dragon hatchling mouth, Don't pout, I'm getting up, *yawn*
After visiting the bathroom, Midnite is toilet-trained, it's just easier...
Back in bed,
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...pfffwha- *groan* What now?
More licking; I swear my face is starting to bleed, her tongue gets rough when she needs a...a what? *mumblegrumblegroan*
Midnite makes lapping motions, You want a drink?
Nodding dragon head, that's a yes.
Is there anyway you could've done this before I tried to go to bed?
Evil smile, that would be a no.
This is going to be a loooooooong night...
Okay, so, finally, got her a drink and put some water in a bowl on the floor; good for both a quick Midnite drink and a general fire extinguisher...
Snuggled in bed, this is strange, Midnite's letting me have half the bed...she's up to something...
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz....gah...what is it NOW???!!!!
No dragon tongue on my cheek, glancing around worried, Midnite sitting on my chest [not a good idea if you want to continue breathing -I'm not saying she's fat but...]
Flicking her tail back and forth, wagging? Her wings are twitching, creating little gusts through the room.
What on the TARDIS do you want, this time?
Midnite's little head tilts to the side, what is going on he....
*Play with me?!*
Recoiling, squished against the headboard of my bed, not sure what to do.
Midnite's eyes fill full of tears,
*Play with me, please?*
Sheets fly into orbit as I race for the door, flinging it open I begin to yell,
"FIRST MATE, FIRST MATE! Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!"
Repli? Ben? Where are the two of you? Heavy sigh, so that's where the two of you went. Watches Sailor bolt from quarters. Enter Sailors quarters. BOYS! Bed now! Points way out of Sailors quarters. Repli and Ben muttering as they leave Sailors quarters. I've got a specialized bed for midnite on order should be here in a day or two. Spot Repli and Ben in the recycling bin munching out. Okay, you two enough snacking time for bed. You both need a chance to regenerate. Get Sailor settled down. Sorry about the boys, they wanted to play with midnite. the three of them get along wonderfully.
~I get inside my new quarters and see the my new shapeshifting ally~
???: I have a feeling we'll be good friends.
~looks at sword~
???: Why are you looking me like that. It must be my male voice ~changes it into a female voice~ That's better. I am Equinox. Tell me any non-living form and I'll change into it
OK, change into a necklace ~changes into a necklace~
Equinox: Why a necklace?
To ensure no one steals ya
Equinox: No one would want to steal a necklace. I would just turn into....? into....
Equinox: Oh fine necklace it is. I can only change form 3 times a day so use me wisely.
Makes sure Stepith is comfortable in new quarters. So that Equinox, nice piece of weaponryand difficult to come by. the Equinox is one of the rarest weapons in the space time continuim to be exact. I had to pull a few strings to get Equinox for you. I understand you are one of only a handful of mortals that can handle Equinox. The Istari were most helpful in getting this gem of a weapon.
I'z need weapon!
A vision of a bouncing ball enters my mind...
Opens eye, Midnite nuzzling under my right elbow, curling up for warmth. Cute!^^
A little blue eye focuses on my face, there's the bouncing ball again!
Holy Crapsmas! She's telepathic!
To whoever I want to be! Midnite purrs proudly.
This could be useful.
Writes a note and slips it under the First Mate's door
See you in the Morning
Then goes back to bed...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
~drinks sake~ Well Equinox, we're gonna have one hell of a partnership.
Equinox: Let's hope so. I possess the same knowledge level as you do. Your mind is my mind and we must work our very hardest to achieve success for both ourselves and the crew.
That was one hell of a speech Equinox! ~reads book~
Equinox: I take you were not listening
I was. I just multitask.
Equinox: Oh really. Prove... ~stares at book and paper~ oh.....
See my point.
Equinox: Let's study. We can both agree on that right?
Grabs note from under door. Midnite is telepathic? This explains much with Repli and Ben. Hear two burps from corner. Okay boys that's enough snacking tonight. I need the two of you to settle down for the night, we have a long day ahead of us. Settles in to go over crew requistions for supplies. Repli and Ben curl up on pillow for the night. Hey guys leave some room for me.
~I sit reading a level one spell book with Equinox on neck. We levitate up in the air while sitting criss-cross~
Equinox: Are you sure magic is a language.
Magic is a language at best. Remember my job is an Archivist, and I'm supposed to study other languages. Not to mention decipher them
Equinox: Why start at level one
So we can understand magic at the beginning. We all have to start somewhere. Equinox.
Equinox: Why not take a break. Go out or something.]
I rather read a book.
Equinox: My previous master had fun with himself and why can't you?
We're all different Equinox. ~we levitate again~
Looks at Stepith floating in the galley. Both Repli and Ben dive down my top. It's okay guys Stepith is just practicing.
~after hours of studying we start standing up~
Equinox: Finally a break!!
A 5 minute break is what we have today so relish it while it still lasts ~goes to the kitchen and gets iced tea and chips~
We have to work hard for the Captain and his First Mate. ~gets out book~
Equinox: You read a book while you're on breaks?!
It kills boredom naturally
Equinox: Why not play a video game or something other than read.
Unless if the captain or first mate gives me a break from work. Onwards to a level 1 healing magic spell book
Equinox: Not again
~we levitate up in the air with two orbs levitating around us this time~
"Resident Pyromaniac, ready and reporting for duty, sir!" *Smartly saluting*
A mental *nudge* from my little winged companion, currently wrapped around my neck gives me pause,
"And so, -apparently- is your resident Dracobonder... *Sharp pain in forehead*
I swear I hear Midnite let out an exasperated sigh, like an exhausted parent dealing with a really stupid child, it echoes around my mind.
I swear she would have added "..., idiot!" if she could have!
"Yeah, Dracoguardian, whatever, dunno what it means but Midnite's been sending me some pretty weird-ass stuff while I was asleep. There's something called dragon-magic? It can be tapped by the 'bond-parent' or something..."
Recalls the day, far back in the mists of time, when her sapphire egg was reverently handed around the Tribe's children, how amazing it felt when the egg began to glow in my hands!
The joy of watching my hatchling emerge...
The sharp headache I had recieved after thinking about calling her, for it was a [rare] female hatchling, Amelia...then settling on Midnite, headache gone....conincidence?
I think not!
Her first flight...
Her first flame...
...My first wig...
[Image not Found - Not an image I want to remember!]
Ahhh, Good Times!
"Something about magic, using it? I wasn't really paying attention,"
*raises voice with every syllable*
"...considering I was asleep!"
*Pointed look at Midnite, whose expression was as innocent as an angel's*
Basically, new powers and mojo on the TARDIS, awesome! could be useful on our grand exploration of the galaxy!
*Glances into Stepith's Room*
"Dude, wanna sandwich or something?"
*Notices evil glance Midnite's giving the new crewmwmber...and decides to just go with it...*
Midnite steals into the room, an oblivious Stepith calmly ignores both me and her simultaneously. His levitation gives her an idea...I get the mental backwash, an image flashes through my mind, I try very hard not to laugh and give it all away...
My little sapphire positions herself underneath the entranced magician, until she's right under the seat of his levitating pants, and sits back on her haunches.
Little features plastered with mischievious intention...she sucks in a deep breath, getting ready to ignite, a jet of flame sparks from her tongue...
~None of the pics are mine! ^^
The 'First Flight' one is actually my YouTube Avatar!
Owwww!!! ~sigh~ It's only natural for mischievous dragons to breathe fire on people they don't even know ~cleans self off~ Well now my dragon friend ~I see some hostility in the dragon's eyes~ O...K then
~makes self a sandwich, sits on a table~
Equinox: That's what you get for working too hard.
Ya think that huh? We're just gonna look at comics. Either that or we'll keep studying the language of magic
~we just spend the next three hours looking at comics on the laptop~
Watches midnite ignite Stepith breeches. Amazed how Stepith donesn't even flinch. The dude is too engrossed in his reading. Makes mental note to remind Stepith to take some down time. Repli whisting Under Fire while wrapped around my ponytail. Ben is plopped on the top of my head snickering.
~while reading, I was sent a mental note by G0lden to take a break and that's what I'm doing right now~
Ya want to take a break
Equinox: I thought you never asked! Where to?
Lets just relax on a lawnchair or something for starters.
~I go to the fridge with Equinox in her natural necklace form, makes a drink, gets out a salami sandwich, a lawnchair, and go out and relax in peace~
Equinox: This is life.
Yeah. ~sips Dr.Pepper~
Edit: Music for our break is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-PuCC-lmNw
I think Midnite's picking up some bad habits from Ben and Repli,
all I can hear in my mind is O-Zone's "Numa Numa".
A certain dragon may be about to die if she doesn't make it stop!
...Uhhhhhhhh.................? Did my own hand just slap me?
Midnite is grinning evily, she is so de-*slap*
Ok, that's gotta stop -my face hurts-, I think really nasty thoughts, at her hard, *fwop* and a small scaly tail thwacks her on the forehead. Hey, this is fun...
Ben and Repli don't listen to Ozone. If it is 60's, 70's, 80's, some 90's and 2000, then you're good. They have been teaching midnite some Def Leppard, Thin Lizzy, and others.
...What I meant was the annoying habit, First Mate...
I think she's been listening to my iPod...
Hey, Stepith! Can your Equinox weapon turn into a tennis ball? Midnite wants to play, uhhh, make that a metal tennis ball, or you mightn't get your weapon back in one piece...
Equinox: Oh no. nonononono You are not turning me into a tennis ball
Metallic Tennis Ball to be exact.
Equinox: Hah! You didn't say the command.
I am now. Equinox! Turn into a metal tennis ball! ~she morphs from a necklace to metallic tennis ball~ Here ya go Silver ~I give Silver the tennis ball as requested~
what is Uri doing here???? *notices a small metalic green tennis ball appear from nowhere*
New recruits, captain. Stepith is the new archivist and he also specializes in magic. Well to be more precise his necklace is actually a weapon that can morph into any shape and the two are linked telepathically. Sailor is a new weapons specialist. She has a dragon name midnite and they are also telepathic.
Repli? Ben? Would you mind taking Midnite out and playing a game with her?
*Looks seriously at Midnite*
Don't set anyone on fire!
*Little dragon teeth flash as she smiles*
Aww, aren't you cute! I love it when you purr!
Hey, First Mate, what can I do around here?
I'm good at fighting but my last sword wasn't as fire-proof as I thought it was...shame, I rather liked it...
Oh, the reason I asked for a laser-weapon before was for one main reason: Steel makes dragons sick, especially if they're in the same room as it over an extended period of time, also, it really can't be melted if it's a laser, can it!
Do we have any gold aboard?
Dragons have this thing where they line their nests with gold and jewels, magic or something...
I can get you that laser weapon. Grabs cataloge of specialty weapons tosses it to Sailor. Have a look here and let me know what you want. As far as gold and jewels I'll have into that one. I have know clue as to what we have as far as spoils go. Mindnites' bed arrived today, it has been placed in your quarters. it's a specialized bed for dragons.
Watches Ben, Equinox, Midnite, and Repli play tag. Well I see that those four are going to get along really well. As you have noticed Repli and Ben are replicators, they can assume any shape or size. So know we a 2ft dragon, 2 ft spider, 2ft of Ben ( have no clue what shape he is taking), and a 2 ft Equinox minicking Repli's spider shape.
~I see Equinox roll by~
Equinox: Please....I want to return by your side
By your command. EQUINOX!!! Return to your original form!! ~she transforms back to a necklace~
Equinox: Never make me do that crap again.
Fine fine. ~goes to the fridge~ ~gets out Dr.Pepper~ ~sits on lawnchair looking at the moon~
Equinox: Can we have more breaks often?
Only if the Captain or First Mate gives us one.
Flicks through catalogue at speed of light...
Wow! Look at all the stuff in here!
I really like this, it's currently on special...and it comes in a pair!
but I'll also need a sword...hmmm...so many choices!
Holy....! *Falls off chair*
Found my Dream Weapon! It's on sale too!
First Mate, was wondering about position on crew?
You're, obviously, First Mate,
Xiu's the Captain,
RedHead Ember is the Cannoneer?
Stepith Bloodia's our new, resident magician with the big fancy sword...
What do you do best? I'm serious about this too. Right now your listed as a weapons expert, but if you have a different skill let me know.
Weapons...and, um, wepons are good....
I'm pretty good at fighting and am a Draco- draco- dracon- Dragon Person.
Don't know what it's about, maybe I can be a mytholgical expert or something later on.
So, Weapons and Mythological Creatures + most normal ones, are my specialty.
~Swords, just one or two [one in each hand]
~Pointy spear-like objects, Throwing again
~Good with a shield
~Can use a club/mace if needed
-Never used an Axe, weakness!
Other [AWESOME] Skills:
~Hunting, forest, Tanning
~Dragon Telepathy & apparent future magic stuff?
~Good with animals
That's me, First Mate!
I was right you're a weapons expert. your new weapons have been ordered when they arrive I sugest that you become very familiar with them.
Hey, I haz an idea! *Headache* Okay, Midnite had an idea,
can I call my position Chief Weaponeer or Weapons-master, or something cool like that, no offence Midnite but 'Dracoguardian' isn't the most awesome name there is...*Massive Migrane*
...I'm just gonna go lie down, and think of different ways to kill you, you scaly devil!
*Staggers off to cabin, an audible "Fffff-whumpfff" echoes through the ship*
Damn these sheets are soft.
*Something climbs on my back*
Uh-uh, hell no! Look at this Midnite, it's your new bed! G0lden got it specially for you!
*Midnite hops in and curls up, purring, the migrane becomes a dull ache*
I'm just gonna lie here for an eternity, call me if you need me...
I'm keeping it at weapons expert. The reason is you have a natural talent for using different weapons and you learn how to use new weapons quickly. I'm glad midnite likes her bed. I'm still looking into some spare booty for her to use in her bed.
Alright Equinox. Break's over
~we get up and go back to my room to get another spell book~
Equinox: Studying again?
~we get out a level 2 healing magic book and begin studying its contents while three orbs fly around us~
I thought Red was our weaponmaster? oh well, G0lden can you get me a map of the Cotz Sector?
Red is our munitions expert and well as weapons expert on guns. Got that map you requested for the Cotz Sector. The Istari need to consult with you on this particular sector.
Ah good, I'll have a banana with them later, lets see that map shall we?
~We stop reading~
Break time ~we wave to G0lden and the Captain as we go to the fridge~
~hums a song as we make a sandwich and get some Dr.Pepper. We do the same old thing with our breaks and so forth~
Equinox: So why do we relax near the sunset?
Force of habit most of the time. The sun feels nice this time of year so enjoy it while it lasts. We need to build our strength in case we have an adventure.
Equinox: Good point. My previous owner was all play no work. That's what got him killed
How did he die?
Equinox: His wits were not enough to dodge the boulder that was coming at him. He ended up becoming squashed. At least his funeral had music.
Yeah you're starting to creep me out with the funeral thing
Watches Stepith and Equinox amble by. Taking another break I see, good. The fridge has been restocked. Oh and captain the rum as been delivered earlier today plus a complimentary cases of cigars. i do believe they want to keep us as customers.
Ol' Ray said Winie left something important on Lortz Three, one fo the nine moons around the gas giant Lortz He said it'd be of help to us
We got to go to Lortz Three?" More importantly do we know exactly which moon is Lortz Three. I do remember a time of hunting for a place on a moon and that didn't go to well. Where exactly is it located in the Cotz sector?
Lortz Three is the third moon orbits the planet, it is also the only moon that can actually support any type of city life, the other moon you recall is Chas, that was a woody place and gave me PO for six months!
Oh yes, now I remember. That was a very rought six months for everyone! Now tell me is this city easy to get into or you have gotten in trouble there before. I just want to know if this is going to be get into the city the easy way or the hard way?
Easy way, Ray's givien the locals headsup, they never heardof us before, I'm surprised you know what PO stands for (Poison Oak)
So the locals have a heads up on our arrival? Good, now lets just get there in one piece and leave as quietly as we arrived.
~we get up~
Wow that was a long break. Back to work
~the bonds between Equinox and I begin to deepen~
~we go back to our room to keep reading the healing spell book~
Ready the orbs ~the orbs levitate by themselves syncing with my energy~
How cool orbs floating around the room and humming too. hey Stepith don't forget to get some shut eye. Sleep is very important for all especially if you are learning new things.
*Does not see where he is going, a solid THUNK is heard as selfs head connects with a floating orb and self as a result, hits the floor*
Cathes glimpse of captain walking right into a floating orb. Ouch, that's not only going to hurt, but it's going to leave a mark.
*Almost wets self laughing at Captain*
Shakes head at captain. Guess I'll have to move him to his quarters. Assists captain in getting up and gets him moving towards his quarters. Repli whistling Hit Me With Your Best Shot.
*a hand snakes out of nowhere and decks Repli a good one*
*comes to as G0lden tries ot get self to his cabin, and ends up bashing his face against the doorframe* Someone get me the lincese of the party that hit me! Quick!
Captain falls on top on me just as he smacks Repli. WOULD YOU GET OFF MY LAP!
What lap? iz comfy! *gets decked*
I derseved that
You sure did! Repli now whistling Kung Foo Fighting and is on the top of the captains head pulling his hair.
*some hair gets pulled loose and Repli goes "EEEP!" and hits the deckplates as self stands up* nevermind that ! i'm wide awake and counting on damages for my sternuainum dysaintise.... whatever that is, and where's my rum? Is something wrong with this picture?
Repli dives down my top. OUCH! Don't pinch that hurts. Hands the captain a bottle of rum. Have yo spoken to the Istari yet? They have info on the Cortz sector that we will need to get to Lortz Three.
*Takes the rum* ah good, that is one remedy fixed, what else is, aha, *snags a banana off a passing tray of food supplies* Yo G0lden, got a light? *sticks the banana in his mouth liek a cigar*
~I see the Captain~ Oops uhh sorry Cap, I'll be sure to control my floating orbs next time. I just have to remember to get the rubber ones next time
Looks at captain, well get your bottle of rum and banana and go talk to the Istari. Repli looks out from top snickering. Watch it short cake.
Ben and Uri wolfwhistle at G0ldens comment, then shut up*
Repli starts whistling Sweet Talkin Woman. Ben and Uri start keeping harmony. So you all found my ELO cd. Shakes head, Repli would you please get out of my top? Repli looks at captain and shakes his head and tries to go lower in top. Repli you can't go any lower you do realize this?
*The captain halts midway through his door* *a funny look on his face*.................. Not gonna say anything *ducks into his room and shuts the door, which shortly thereafter rattles wildly as if possessed and some black smoke filters under the crack*
Ah sh*t I think the captain is going to blow up his quarters again. Run!
*The captains voice is heard through the door* That's the last time I get a rock solid banana, I'll kill the supplier! Boy does it stink in here.... where'd the kitten come from??? *When the door is opened and the smoke fades away, the captain is seen in his chair behind his desk with a mutlicolored 8 week old kitten in his hands, his feet up on the desk*
Looks cautiously around the door frame. Sees captain sitting at his desk with feet propped up. Ummm, where did the kitten come from?
*Autumn purrs loudly as she is comforted in the captains arms. seeming to nuzzle off to sleep* No idea, but i'm keping her, she's harmless. oh a letter *spots a letter on his desk, labled "TO THE CAPTAIN", the captain smiles as he reads it* Looks like Sister Liu has changed after all, her only child, she wants me to adopt her!
Cool, that's great news from Sister Liu. I think I know where the kitten came from. Hang on a sec. PIKE!
*Pike wakes up from his bunk and falls off the hamock right ontop of G0lden* Y'called madam? *he looks around not seeing G0lden* madam??
Get off ME! Pike finally realizes he has landed on me and stands up. Pike even offers his hand to help me up. Pike, where did you get the ktten from? Pike mumbles something about a kitten at last port of call.
Our last port of call the place was toast. Do you have any idea where it came from. pike shakes his head.
Looks at captain. Well looks like Pike found the kitten and I guess she's yours now.
Really? And here I was *phone rings* that's funny I don;t remebmer a phone on my ship, *picks it up while still holding Autumn* Hallo?..... yes, speaking.... oh yes I have her in my hands now.... you found her where?.... At THAT PLACE?..... Are you nuts Liu????..... What a momma??...... Whoa, hold on a second, BACK UP,.... are you trying to tell me your only daughter is in my hands now???
*Procceedes to place Autumn in G0ldens hands and faints dead away*
*He has his NIECE on his ship as a kitten*
Grabs kitten from captain and watches he pass out. Take phone call from Sister Liu. So the kitten is the captains niece? You placed her in the captai'sn care until you can get her. That's no problem, but one question? Is this sweet little kitten a little girl that has been transformed into a kitten?
*From other end of phone* No, Autumn was born a kitten, when she reaches six monthso f age she'll shift and begin walking on two legs like a human, she'll have feline features though *Liu goes no further on the details, though captain knows them*
Okay then Sister Liu, we'll keep Autumn safe in the meantime. Captain starts stirring on the floor reaches for the phone.
~we go back to our room~
~we sit down, close the door, and levitate up in the air once more with four orbs~
Equinox: So this won't hurt the captain now right
Checks on Stepith and Equinox. Are you two oaky. Gets strange look from Stepith. Don't worry about hurting the captain. He is nearly indestructable. Besides I end up decking at least once a week. Ben, Repli, and Uri battle for a place to sit on my head. Autumn the new kitten is asleep in my arms. Trust me it is really hard to hurt the captiain. Of course you have to take into account the when the Istari brought him back they made sure he was really hard to hurt. Well actually hard to kill.
~whew~ That's a relief
Equinox: It sure is.
~I get out the orb catalog~
Mmmmm More orbs. More concentration
Equinox: How many do we got?
Seven. Lets sit and meditate in the galley with the orbs
~we sit in the galley with the seven orbs in near us. We levitate up in the air with the orbs circling around us~
Stand back people. Or ya might get hurt ~we continue on with our meditation~
Midnite, wrapped firmly around my shoulders, peers through the door of the Captain's Cabin.
She purrs, and the vibrations send a delightful vibration down my spine; intrigued by the multicoloured kitten, firmly within the First MAte's grasp, I open my mouth to speak...
Only to be beaten to the punch by Midnite, who flaps her little wings and makes her way towards the little ball of fur.
Now, it's cute that she's making the effort, but she's only just learnt to fly, so it's pretty hard for her to aim well.
The poor little Hatchling is so close, then her wings fail her and she veers off to the left.
*Damn* The thought crosses my mind, I snigger, then leap forwards to catch her.
Seemingly out of nowhere, Stepith appears, three small orbs shoot out and surround Midnite, halting her descent. He reaches out a hand and picks her up by the wings. As pleased as I am that he rescued her, I still hit him!
'Not the wings, Idiot!' I yell, "They're sensitive!"
I get so damn angry, he looks surprised and releases her, Midnite hits the floor, and yowls.
I imagine him bursting into flame, and suddenly my hands become so hot!
It's not painful, but, as I glance down, I notice they're on fire!
Eyes are hot too, I can feel streaks of flame jetting across my cheeks. Whoa!
Stepith, G0lden and the Captain back away slowly, eyes wide with fear, the kitten falls to the floor. No one notices.
I think I'm getting hotter, what is going on here, Midnite is looking waaaaaaaay too smug to not know what's happening. She darts across the room in a flash of sapphire, and I explode in flame!
......The walls and most of the furniture are either scorched black, smouldering or aflame. I can't help but smirk, that I had done this, then I'm horrified.
The Captain's eyes peer over the edge of his overturned desk, G0lden and Stepith step out from behind the shining, body-length shield his beloved weapon had become. They survey the carnage, I want to apologise, but no words come out...and I get the impression that this room has looked worse...
"Where's the Kitten?" screams G0lden, frantically casting around, the Captain is on his hands and knees searching; Stepith appears to have seen something, he takes two steps to the left of me and kneels.
A small ball of sapphire scales can clearly be seen, flashing in the residual fire's light, he stretches out a hand and touches her scales. Midnite immediately unfurled, revealing an unharmed, slightly confused, kitten, purring snuggly in the centre of her fire-proof body.
I'm not sure whether to be pleased at her actions or kill her for not telling me what the hell just happened!
They look to me for answers, I have none; I look at Midnite, she sends a single sentence into my mind....
"What the Hell do you mean, 'That's what a DracoGuardian does'?" I roar, and have to be physically restrained, before I attempt to tear her limb from limb!
That infuriating little dragon just smiles! Gah! NOW she's Dead!
I strain against the others, then all of a sudden, feel really tir- *Eyes roll back in head & collapses*
~as we got up to check the situation, we notice a new trick~
Huh? ~the orbs start levitating around us like a circle~ An orb shield?
Equinox: How interesting. ~the orbs start surrounding us~
Disperse!!! ~the orbs fall down~
Levitate!! ~the orbs start levitating again~ We gotta go outside for this
Watches Stepith and Equinox leave the captains office with orbs in tow. Now that was interesting. Minnite is on my shoulders and Autumn is in my arms. Ben, Repli, and Uri have settled down on my head or ponytail. Captain has downed an entire bottle of rum in 5 minutes. Hands another bottle of rum to the captain. Go to your quarters captain and rest for awhile.
Midnite asks for ice cream for a snack. We'll see midnite. Get to the galley. Ben, repli, and Uri dive into the metal and glass reccyling bins. autumn gets some kitty food and a little milk. Midnite gets a small bowl of ice cream. I make a huge root beer float for myself.
This has been one wild day. I wonder if the captain was able to meet with the Istari.
...huh? Wait...wasn't the funny-lookin' guy with the pointy stick, doing healing magic before?...pretty..haha...
[If you hadn't guessed it, they gave me something...]
Checks up on Sailor. Yup out cold, just like the captain. Goes to Sailors quarters grabs midnites bed, you're stay with me to night little girl. Goes to the captains quarters and gets Autumn bed. Goes back to my quarters. Midnite whistles and telepathically tells me "Wow!" Yeah I know my quarters are nearly as large as the captains. Ben, Repli, and Uri hop on the bed and get comfortable on two pillows. Toss Autumns' and midnites' bed on one side of the bed. You girls are sleeping near me tonight.
Gets up for the day. Lets the little ones continue to sleep. Find Stepith asleep on a table in the galley. Seven orbs are on the floor and Equinox has become a blanket covering Stepith. Checked on Sailor in the infirmary, she'll recover quickly enough. Captain is passed out in his quarters, three rum bottles for a change not too bad. Pike is passed out as usual on the deck, dreamberry wine in hand.
Gets Zey checked in as new crew member. Assigns quarters to Zey. Now let me know what you will need to decorate your quarters. I will also need to know what weapons you will need. We'll figure out your position on the ship later.
Goes back to quarters. Ben and Repli got breakfast for everyone. Uri is just waking up. Autumn and midnite are quietly playing. Okay guys lets get some breakfast and clean up a bit. Then we'll see what we can do for the rest of the day.
Ughhhh what happened last night???
Equinox: You passed out remember.
I suppose so. Equinox!!! Return to your original form ~transforms back into a necklace~
I need to get that orb catalog. So we can order some more orbs. Some rubber ones, squishy ones, and glass ones just in case.
Equinox: I remember now.....you said "transform to blanket" and I did so.
*stands right in front of Midnite, both watching the other*
Hey, Midnite... tell me something. You can see right. Tell me if the Nephilim is gone.
*Midnite sends images of them with question*
**Yes, they are the Nephilim. Are they still here, or did they die?**
*Midnite nods again*
Thank you, kind dragon.
*walks away from them, and the dragon falls back to sleep*
Why am I the only one who hasn't gotten into trouble with her yet?
Goes out on deck with Autumn, midnite, Repli, ben, and Uri. Autumn and Mindnite are playing with each other. Repli, Ben, and Uri are trying to see if the new crew members got any cds they can download. The three of them went trough my cd collection again this morning and found a few that they somehow missed.
Sailor and the Captain are still out cold. Makes sure a catalog of orbs made of various substances is sent to Stepith. Attaches note to catalog remind Stepith, his previously ordered items have arrived and let me know what else needs to be ordered.
Looks at Startear, well look at what the cat drug in. I haven't seen you for a while. When did you return to the ship?
Finally, I start to feel good, better in fact, than I've felt in a while.
Suddenly, I'm starving! And decide to go to the Galley, in search of a good hot meal...and a certain Hatchling, in order to make her explain what the hell just happened!
On one hand, 'spontaneously combusting' is going to put a dampener on outings, on the other hand...that was soooooooo awesome!
*Opens Galley Door*
Hellllllllllloooooooooooooooooo? Anybody There?
*Stuffs Bread and Some Meat into Face at Ridiculous Speed*
Mfwah...Mmdf...*Swallows*...Whew, I'm stuffed, damn, I wish they had some Vanilla Coke~Cola aboard...oh, fruit juice!
*Drinks full bottle, tosses it aside and walks out towards the deck*
G0lden is standing watching the little one's play together, it's adorable,
Hey, First Mate? I have a few questions...*Deep Breath*
What exactly are Ben, Repli and Uri?
Is that Kitten really a little girl?
And, what on Earth -or should I say the Universe?- is a Nephrilium, or Whatever crewman StarTear said?
*Exhales loudly and sits straight down on deck*
Ben, Repli, and Uri are replicators. If you ever seen Stargate SG1 you'll know what a replicator is and what it can do.
Pike is Pike. To be exact he is a Wolfrider. I rescued him sometime ago. Mind you we were leaving in a really big hurry at the time. We had enemies shooting at us. Yes we will be getting more members of the tribe as we go.
Autumn is a kitten who happens to be Sister Lius' daughter. By what I understand she'll will grow and in time start walking on her hind legs. Think of Puss n Boots from Shrek.
I do believe Nephrilium is a race that is no longer alive. Evidently midnite has some knowledge of the Nephrilium. I would need to speak to Startear to get more information.
I understand you like Vanilla Coke. I'll get some ordered for you, may take a day or so for it to arrive.
Feels explosion below deck. I see Red is playing with chemicals again. Fae come onto the deck with soot on face. Yup playing chemicals again.
~Chemicals? Oooo, pick me! I love blowing things u-...I mean, contributing to the scientific community...~
*Runs Downstairs to find Chemicals*
~Shotgun something explosive!~
*Falls face-first over Pike, who is lounging in the Hallway*
~Manouvre your drunken behind, dude! There's things to explode!~
Watches Sailor run below deck. Hears a thump and yelling. Heavy sigh, she just found Pike. I wonder if Red still has that chemical book I got her. She and Sailor maybe able to work together, but I don't know Red likes doing her own thng much of the time.
