"That is part of being a great commander," said Henry.

"Any fool with a bit of rank can order people to do things. Most of the time they'll do them. Great commanders have the knack of making their people want to do things."

  Shadow  Pointed  at Hwenry and Grinned , Larry's  eyes  were peering of the table .looking for stray bits of meat.

 Jax have  LArry   part of His Hamburger.. and Mila   the other part, as he started on his pasta.

  Flo Raven waved Flores   Up with One HAnd  and the two went oto sing, Beth pointed at her cheek and shook her ehad...Once was enough...

 Raven   smiled,..wouldn't be a Party with out this Song!...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?...OI&start_radio=1

  Raven started  out with the  scream, and Both women  took   turns      bouncing around on that   while   Hemsly and  Steele  handled the Vids.

 Will whispered in   HArry's  ear,well?.. I'll say it..... and whispered the words into her ear..

 Poeple  were Up and Dancing to almost every song  now.. the sadness replaced  by acceptance...then..replaced   by The Need to  celebrate  with those  still  around..

Re: RECDEC 7
   When the Ladies  Finished  thier  Song  and people clapped ,  Pinkerton was    aghast at the  wanton behavior  of the   crew.

   Stefi  came Over  to Shade.. she had  a small  plastic , ziplocked  bag. ther  were    4  flat 'splashes'  of  silver in it.

  ..Hey Shade?.. Thought maybe you'd  like this for a Good luck  charm or  somehting.. they are the   bullets   i  got for your chest...

  He gave her a Thumbs up  as she   gave him a PAt on the head  and  moved  to  Henry...

 ..Lets  Go Doc.. Me and You  throw  a song out there, so they don't think us egg heads  are   'sticks in the mud!"

  She was Pulling on his  arm...

 ..better Go Doc.. other  wise  she might   run out of  numbing agent, next time you need sewed up!

 Stefi just  Grins  as she Pulls  Henry forward....yu pick the song...

 Lyri looks  at  Shadow.....they enevr  run out?.. we  produce it on the ship, in the tech Lab?

 Shadow's grin faded  as he watched them head to the   Stage.....dammit!.. I knew it!

 and the others laughed.

Re: RECDEC 7
Viktor had raised his glass to toast when it seemed socially appropriate and clapped and given small Roll a smile when he returned from singing. But in terms of song and dance himself, he remained reserved. It was odd to have such a celebration after so many had died. And his mind still strayed to the fact that, while they had been enemies today and therefore prey, so many of his people had been killed in the battle. He had killed many of them in the destroyed transport. And it seemed not to matter to the humans in the least. Two Lair-class ships, the pride of the Vampic navy, casually dispatched and many of their crews put to death.

It was like the ESN and the APF were an unstoppable wave of change sweeping across the galaxy. Other races could either join or go extinct. He only hoped that there would be a just stellar order set-up in the wake of these conquests. If it was not, there would be no one but internal dissidents left to oppose any tyranny.

Re: RECDEC 7
"Me, sing?"

Henry was completely startled at the concept. But Steffi wouldn't stop tugging... then Mila joined in, capering around, so he let himself be led.

"I don't know any songs... um, let's see."

He searched the machine's databased. Finally he found something:

Re: RECDEC 7
   People clammed to   the Song   Stefi and   Henry  sang, as more   focus    would begin to get 'warmed up"

   Shade   would   come over to Henry  and Give Him one of the 'silver  bullet  splashes, bleeping  a  but with Orria next to him.. He also Gave   Orria   One...

 He   then went to Zob  and  took   out  a 3rd one  and GAve it to Zob , Bleeping some more.

 The Last one, stayed in his bag and  he  tucked into his pocket.

  Eckles, Mara   and frans  went up the Stage  , frans said,..here's a  song   for  the whole  Delta Fleet, regardless of the  words....

"Thank you, Shade. Sorry you got hurt, hope you feel better now," said Henry as he accepted the silver bullet splashes. He tucked it away in a pocket, wondering just what to do with it.

Re: RECDEC 7
ORRIA

Orria followed Shade, and when he gave one of the silver bullet sphere's to Henry and Zob she carefully explained, "Shade say, For Dr. Christie, Orria, and Zob. Good luck charm. They are from his i'jury." She gives Shade a big careful hug certain he's still hurting. "Orria help Shade next time." She declares.

Re: RECDEC 7
Zob took one of the silver bullets and looked it over thoroughly before pocketing it he would have one of the craftsman on the ship make a trinket out of it for him, "Thank you Shade" he said genuinely thankful before looking up to the stage then to Pinkerton, "This is gonna be the last time i say this girl start showing a bit more respect for people and you will receive such in return... you are here because the LC was merciful enough to give you a chance but you are quickly exhausting any patience the rest of us have left for you" He didn't give a damn at this point if he would have to spend the rest of the day in the Brig or a SEC cell because he was gonna deck her ass to prove a point if she smarted off one more time, he was at patience end with this woman despite trying to be as civil as possible.

  Jason, "It's kinda scary how many of us kids are getting misplaced now adays.  Dad worked in the fleet yards, mom was internal affairs for the security on Fuji.  One night they just didn't come home.  A freind of dads did scrap work.  His kid and I got on well so they took me in.  We ended up on the LG, that's where Sgt Garrat started working with the kids.  I came in with his new daughter sneak.  I think they are off to a kind of rocky start."

   Jason looked over at Shade, "So that's shadow's son huh?  I've heard some awesom things about him.  Does he really make video games?"

Re: RECDEC 7
Teela had heard enough. The Admiral, her Admiral had come out in bloody clothes to give awards to two people who deserved them and had then joined the crew in a song dedicated to the children they had rescued from the Stem. She could think of no man she would so willingly follow into battle or die for and to hear Pinkerton make yet another rude comment about someone onboard the Hermes...that pushed her last button.

She waited until the song was over and the Admiral and Commander had departed before she walked over to the woman, her eyes a deep black colour, and grabbed her by the neck to lift her off her chair and off her feet, the taller Angel letting the woman dangle from her hand.

"By the Stars, if you make one more demeaning or insulting comment about anyone in this fleet I will twist your head around so you see your own arse. Do. You. Understand. Me?" She said in a deep growl.

 her eyes  shifted to Shadow...she wanted to  say something but couldn't.

Re: RECDEC 7
Suddenly the tension snapped, and An'teela had Pinkerton in the air by her throat. Melia slid her chair back rising smoothly her angel steel knife seeming to appear in her hand out of thin air. Her posture remained loose, reading the situation. She completely agreed with An'teela and working with Shadow had taught her nothing was off the table. That said, things were always subject to change and defusing this situation was the primary goal. As she saw it she was preparing to ensure Pinkerton didn't try and escalating things further.

Zob simply shook his head as he watched Teela grab Pinkerton, "Hey Dana will you grab another pitcher of beer for me please?" he said casually as he stood up and seized the opportunity by stealing Pinketons mixed drink and drank the rest of it down as he waited for his beer to show up.

  Score  was  about   11 or so years old. He  popped up   by  Jason,..yeah.. he's have Verian... so i guess he can think like a machine?  I dunno..he made  some Vid  cames  we  played  at the Condo.., doesn't take him long.. that Little Girl..Orria..can sorta  understand  some of his  ..um..words?.. anyway.. he made the  games so the learn..so you can't  just keep doing the same thing all the time.

 there was a Bit Of  Fuss a at He LC's table.. Jax  just looked  at Lyri and   Roy, they didn't react, so he figured it was like   having a party with other gangs?  sometimes  someone needed  punched out...

 Sneak Ducked  aroudn the woman's  flailing Legs  switched  out the Pizza  trays  without  even bothering to  look up...and Places a Fresh picture  of Beer   on  Zobs  table.

Re: RECDEC 7
Zob takes the pitcher of beer and hands Sneak a 100 Cred chip as a tip, "Keep up the good work young one" he then began to casually drink it as he stood out of of Pinkerton's flailing legs stealing one of her shrimps and shook his head at the taste, "You can keep those" he chuckled as he made his way over to the vid machine to go pick out a song to sing!

Re: RECDEC 7
Roy decided to speak up at that moment.  "See, Pinkerton, the thing is that the Delta Fleet is a meritocracy.  People earn their positions by their actions, not their credit account size.  And when you're out on the battlefield, nobody's going to pay much attention to a command officer who bought his rank when there's another officer who actually earned the position and knows what the hell he's talking about."  He shrugged, stabbing a bite of steak with his fork and using it in the air to punctuate his words as he continued.

"Shadow made a very valid point.  The EDT may have all the decorum and dignity you could ever ask for...but the Delta Fleet has the victories.  Decorum doesn't get you anywhere when things are down and dirty in the middle of a battle, and alienating your crewmates by strutting around with a pole up your brass just makes them hesitant to come to your rescue when things get ugly...if they'll come at all.  It may seem foreign to you...but the Delta Fleet didn't get bribed to make any alliances, and we didn't pay anyone to sign on to fight with us.  And that's going to win out over any pompous display, especially from half-trained people who bought their way to their command posts.  And if you were half the officer you believe yourself to be, you'd stop making shocked declarations and start taking notes, because you lost the battle.  If you're smart, you might just live long enough to learn something.  If you're not, the Angel of Death there is going to turn you inside out."

He smiled grimly, and added, "I just hope she does it somewhere else.  We aren't all ground-pounders here, and the bloodshed might be a little much for some peoples' appetites..."  He spared a quick glance at Teela, stressing the last few words a bit.  There were a lot of civilians on the deck...and nearly as many kids...and it would certainly put a dark note on their celebration if someone got beaten to death right in front of them.

Re: RECDEC 7
With Will whispering that he loved her in the middle of Raven's rendition of I don't Care Harry would blush as she lent in and whispered it back to him, placing a hand upon his cheek as she gently kissed him. With a plate of chips and gravy in front of her, a cold beer and Will's arm about her as she enjoyed the music and the antics of the crew it was almost hard to believe that a battle had been fought mere hours before and that they had all been afraid for their lives.

It was with the traditional departure of both the Commander and Admiral that things would take a violent turn as Teela finally lost her cool with their guest and lifted her into the air by the back of her neck like a disobedient puppy. With most of the crew finding something far more interesting to look at, another surreptitiously drawing a knife and Roy giving the woman a firm dressing down that hinted that Teela was free to do as she wished to her so long as it was done elsewhere Harry would give a weary sigh before slowly getting to her feet. Deciding that if she didn't try to deescalate things that no one else would, she would move to stand beside Teela and look up at the former red bird dangling from her grasp "I did warn you about that whole superiority thing now didn't I?" she said in a calm and patient voice, almost as if she was addressing a disobedient child "...now normally I would quite happily let Teela here give you the beat down you deserve, but I'm tired and I just want to sit with my boyfriend, have a beer and listen to the music and so could do without this agro...so...if I ask my friend here really nicely to put you down are you going to start behaving yourself?...don't talk just nod your head" she finished, knowing that if she opened her mouth she might be tempted to start making excuses and complain about her treatment some more which would be a very good way of winding up in med tech...if she was lucky.

Re: RECDEC 7
Teela's wings rode high on her shoulders and were mantled which just served to make her look more menacing. She held the woman up until Roy finished his very well-said piece and then pulled her in. "One more word."

She opened her hand and let her drop before returning to her seat and holding up a hand for another root beer.

Mortica was sitting next to Viktor, her head on his shoulder and an arm around his waist watching the fun on the RecDec and her son running around with his friends. The sad-eyed little boy who cried after getting a piece of chocolate was acting like a normal child and that warmed her heart. Gregor was once again eating his full and was a happy larg pup. She had her Beloved by her side once again and was able to forget, for now, what was happening outside the hull of this ship. She turned her head and kissed Viktor's cheek. "Thank you, my love."

Re: RECDEC 7

   Sneak  looked at Zob.....Mr  Zob?  that's  way too much for a Tip!

 when  Zob  went  up  to Sing,  Shadow  Grinned  and saluted him with his rootbeer glass



...................

 as the sat there.. Morgan  and Clark just received thier Pizza and beer..

  Beth Looked at Jax,..so?.... You  stood  next to  the vampic  that  slapped me  down, and Shot  Shade..and  Just  what.. decided you were going to blow his ehad off  with poppers?

 Jax  smiled a bit   as he   picked up a piece of pizza,..yeah.. he was taller then i thought though, so i had to  go under his chin..amd..the other place, so he wouldn't  be bale to do much.....we like to use  that shotgun ball.. 4-10.. that  would have   took the whole front of his  head off....but we didn't have the time to try to find  some

.

   Pinkerton   fell to the Floor... she     got  back up to her chair and  looked   Like she was goign to say something to Shadow... Shadow, Just held up his handbefore you say somehting stupid... and we  both know you want to...... No?  this isn't the way we treat prisoners... why?.. ebcause  we  don't normally  bring  Prisoners   to the after  party..and?.. if  all things  go well..there are  no Prisoners.. The  Damn Vampics  saved alot of your  red  Bird asses.. because we  were gonna chase them down.., But  when  Vamps -R-us  sent   attack  shuttles into a Bunch of  ships, we have to make sure

 ..so , Just pretend the  Good  old  allies   captured  you  after   shooting  down your red  Tri plane..and   you get to see how the other half lives

 ..but  I'm English?  why should  I be  the Axis?

 ..  you  fly  Red  planes.... most of your Piltos  have some kind of title... and you fly for the bad  guys..

Viktor lightly laid his head on hers as he replied, You do not owe me thanks, my sweet. I only did what any man would do in coming to support the woman he loves. As long as you and I are together, I will undertake any task they require, suffer any slings or arrows they send my way. Human, Demon, or Vampic. I will fly a thousand sorties in their war, if at the end of each you are who I find at home.

Re: RECDEC 7
Teela sat back down and sipped at her root beer and nibbled on her pizza but still cast her gimlet gaze back to Pinkerton now and again as if daring her to say something. Eventually her eyes shaded back to a dull silver and she looked around, noting someone very conspicuous in his absence.

She pulled out her comm and turned around. "Are you still working and not at the after party, Garrat Wolrim?"
