Just touching base. You alright?

[ oh, thank god. miles hadn't heard from bel in the last few days, and granted, it's been pretty chaotic, but even so -- at least that's one less person he has to worry about. ]

Glad to hear it. And I was, yeah, with Athena and Eggsy and...Metabee, I think that's his name. The little yellow robot. We managed to corner it in one of the corridors. Turns out it doesn't like crowds. Athena gave it a shove into one of the unused rooms there and Metabee locked it up tight. Everyone got out alright.
forwardmomentum: (tell me that you're alright)

[ you know how bad he is about keeping in touch sometimes, bel. someone really ought to talk to him about that. apparently the first dozen times didn't stick. ]

She seems alright, and at any rate Doc Yewll's been tending to everyone pretty well.

Wait, he's got a plasma rifle?


[ miles' own plasma arc had been destroyed along with caducus primary and his body. it'd be nice to have one again. ]

I don't suppose he's selling it.

[It's not much - a slight disturbance on a spider's web, a faint twinge of pain - but Wanda's a light sleeper and it's enough. For a few moments, she's disoriented, unsure what woke her or what's wrong.

It only takes a few minutes to work it out, and she's not sure if she should be worried yet. This has never happened before with someone who wasn't Pietro.]


Are you all right?
seeingscarlet: (twins; if the sky comes falling down)

\o/

[personal profile] seeingscarlet 2016-01-17 11:38 pm (UTC)(link)
[She's well past that point, Bel. In those five minutes, Wanda's thrown on shoes and a shawl and headed out into the hallways in nothing else but her pajamas. at least practicality isn't an issue if she has to fight something

They won't get a response. Instead, she makes a beeline for the medbay, slipping into the room as soon as they'll let her.]


Bel... [She doesn't ask if they're all right or if it hurts - she already knows. Instead, Wanda simply slips her hand into theirs and squeezes, relief that is wasn't worse evident.]
seeingscarlet: (witch; turn your back on mother nature)

these two messes :S

[personal profile] seeingscarlet 2016-01-18 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
[Gently:] You really thought I wouldn't? This is not a time to be alone.

[She starts adjusting the edges of the blanket with her free hand, not because it's actually been messed up but just for fussing's sake. No one she cares about can ever stay out of trouble, can they?]

The one who did this...he is locked up now?

I have a question concerning Rinzler. He asked about the consequences of his actions. I was wondering if you knew anything about that.

It would be the same way on our base. [Unless the Boss took a fit of pity on the person. Quiet got away with entirely more shit than she should have. But... well, he'll try not to be bitter over that. That's a good thing about being away from home.]

He just said he'd interpreted the other man as a threat and that's why he was attacked. I asked him if he should seek treatment for his wounds, and then he refused. Then he asked about consequences.

Talks less than even some people I know. But that's what I gathered. I'll go ask.

Thanks for the help.

Somehow it seemed a little more complicated than "he just decided". But then again I could be wrong. I don't know all that much about what they are.

[On the evening of the arrival of this month’s latest newcomers, Bel will get a video message on their MID from an unfamiliar woman. At least, her face and voice are unfamiliar. The MID itself says the call is from Zam Wesell. Which is exactly the problem really.]

Bel? I need you to call me back as soon as you get this message. I don’t want to worry you or anything, but… [She sighs, running a hand through her hair. Her unfamiliar face is made even more unrecognizable by her tense expression; neither the easy confidence Zam has in their day-to-day interactions or the occasional gloomy contemplation infrequently recorded on the network. She actually looks afraid -- not an emotion the bounty hunter has had much use for since dying.] A lot of things are happening at once. And I might need an extra pair of eyes and ears.

This is Zam, by the way. You’ve probably already figured that out. I can explain more later, but just… Please respond, okay?

[Zam picks up the second she gets the call back.] Took you long enough, [she murmurs, though she sounds more relieved than irritated.]

There’s... a group of people who arrived through the Ingress. [She’s hesitant, even when she knows she doesn’t have the time to be. She’s kept the circumstances of her death obscure since she arrived here, the better to avoid being reminded of it, but now it’s looking like she doesn’t have much choice in the matter anymore. Not with those faces now among the crew. She takes a breath and, after one more brief moment of reluctance, lets the words spill out.]

I think the man who killed me is here. Along with the two who were interrogating me when it happened. It’s… a long story. [No, it’s not. But it’s a painful one that she’d rather not tell.] The man who killed me is a bounty hunter named Jango Fett. Wears silver and blue armor. I’ve been trying to scrub my name from the network for the past few hours and it’s not working, and there’s no way he doesn’t have his MID by now, which means he knows I’m here. [Her voice is sharp edged with fear and frustration; after months of being stuck on this ship, it feels like the walls are finally starting to close in -- there’s nowhere else to go.]

He hasn’t seen this face before but he knows I’m a changeling. If he knows I’m here, he’ll be looking for me. I need you to keep an eye out for him and if you do see him, tell me when and where.

And don’t try to approach him. [Except the way Zam says it, it sounds more like “Don’t try and start a fight.”]
backsassin: (8)

[personal profile] backsassin 2016-03-05 05:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Library. He’s got no reason to think I’d be here and he’s sure as hell not going to come in for some light reading. [Jango never had been one for books. And even if he did decide to pay a visit, Zam’s positioned herself on the second floor where she has a clear view of the entrance, and the quiet of the place ensures anyone would have a difficult time sneaking up on her. It’s still not an ideal hiding place, but at least remaining on the ship means she’ll be able to depend on her blaster if it comes down to it -- she’s not about to get into a firefight on a hydrogen-atmosphere gas planet.]

Two human male Jedi. [Seeing as most people here haven’t even heard of the Force, Zam doubts that word has any meaning here.] Members of a religious order turned Republic heavies. If they haven’t changed into uniforms yet, they’ll be in brown robes. [Her tone grows wry despite the circumstances.] I wasn’t able to get on a first-name basis with either of them.

The politician they were protecting came through as well. Human woman by the name of Amidala. If you’re going to talk to anyone, talk to her. Maybe ask what she was doing before she came through the Ingress -- find out if Jango finished the job after he… disposed of me. [And would that just be the best joke? That Zam should die with, or perhaps even in place of the woman she’d been assigned to kill? Sounds like something straight out of a Mabari sermon. She shakes her head in disgust.]

I wouldn’t try striking up conversation with the Jedi if I were you. They have… abilities. Ways of getting inside people’s heads. There’s a good chance they’d learn more from you than you would from them.

Crewman Thorne,

I was wondering if you might consider contributing to a course. Strictly on a volunteer basis.

[ That's the handy thing about invisibility: You don't really have to see anyone. ]

Sorry. My bad.

Your suggestions about ship safety courses, they were good ones. But I think using them punitively (and I'm assuming: presenting the information tediously) isn't as helpful as making them available to the crew at large.

We're all stuck here, and a lot of people don't come from places where ships like this are even a thing. We've got a space 101 lecture going already, and I think your ideas would compliment it well.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like you've had practical experience before this.


[ It's why she's using a title to address Bel in the first place, inaccurate or not. When you're fishing for information, any reaction helps. ]

(In the interests of disclosure: I'm also asking Shepard.)

We sort of have that too, it's just not very widespread. Are there any pronouns you prefer?

Other than 'Captain'. I'm not sure how that one would work in a sentence.

Thank you for agreeing. I'll keep you updated with it. I'm hoping to find a civilian volunteer as well, but it seems like that's even rarer here.


[ Even Leia had talked about having a war to return to, and she's discounting anyone from the CDC outright. ]

And for stuff like emergency procedures, that kind of discipline's probably useful anyway.
