Re: RECDEC 7
Teela liked Dixie. Had, in fact, vouched for her which paved the way for her current position on the Hermes. That didn't change her eyes from starting to turn dark again when she tried to argue against Pinkerton going to the colonies.

"You're ESN now, Dixie. That woman is your enemy and would try and kill you if the two of you engaged each other in fighters. Remember that."

Nikki noticed Joe finally making it to the party.  She reached up and waved an arm for him to come over.  "Hey Joseph"

Re: RECDEC 7
Roy wasn't generally one to dogpile, but the situation warranted it.  "If she can't figure out how to cut it on a colony, she should never have gotten into a war.  If you're going to join combat, you run the risk of death or capture...which in itself has an additional risk of death, depending on who captures you and what mood they're in.  She's been sitting here all afternoon, going on about what ruffians we are and our lack of discipline and dignity...but she keeps forgetting that we won the battle. Now, if that little detail isn't enough to wake her up to the realities, then the colonies should be a pretty solid wakeup call.  But she's got this fantasy version of what this war is stuck in her mind...and until she learns to let it go, she's not safe to have out on her own, because she'll just go back and sign on again."  He waved a hand in dismissal...then started speaking again, as another thought came to mind.

"And let's face it...going to a penal colony is a more appetizing option than being sold in a slave market, which is the best any of us could have hoped for if the EDT had won.  She's just lucky she's not a high enough rank to have been forced to participate in the 'command initiation rituals' that the EDT and SSN put their officers through...because I'm pretty sure, if any of us thought for a minute that she'd eaten a human child to cement her own rank, she'd either get spaced slowly or sent for a swim in the Foundry.  She picked her side.  She's been given I-can't-even-count-how-many chances to recant that choice...and flat out refused.  Now she gets to live with those decisions.  And if the colony life kills her?  Well, she lived that much longer than she would have."

Zob perked up having heard 'not built for hard labor', "Well i guess its as good of time as any to start learning hmm?" he chuckled a bit before getting serious.

"Personally I'm done listening to the babbling of ignorant children such as her... first and foremost she is a enemy that would of showed us no mercy should we of been in the reverse roll... we gave her plenty of chances to see the error of her ways... if she chooses death then so be it..."
Zob said not giving a flying fuck who he offended as he drank more of his beer.

Re: RECDEC 7
  Shadow  smiled   and Pointed aroudn the table to folks  who chipped in...Now.. lets have a Bit of  a game, shall we.... Lets   say one of those  kids  got captured?..what would happen to them?

 ..I don't know?.. sold  to slavers..  sent to teh Empire?

   Shadow   nodded as he  took a sip of    soda,and lets  say  any of the  woman here woudl be captured?

 Dixie looked  uncomfortable,..depends? Who grabbed them? if they were nice   enough looking.. an offcier  might  take them.....other wise, they would be  sent to the Empire Prison camps..

 yeah..well.. we know there is not such things  as prison camps, right?.. Empire doesn't waste rescources on  prisoners..Now..what of  any of us men?

 ..most would be shot.. or sent to the  slavers  for helping buildin and such..Except  for some of you?

 ..Like  which.....' Some"

 ..Big Names.. high Bounty  people... they would be turned over to , whom ever  put the money up?.... Some one like You?.. Lady V would want you to  have some  grand execution, for the Vids?... The Empire  would make  sure it lasted  a ...very long...time.

 ..now?  after that..how does a colony sound?

 Dixie  sat back.. confused  at first..then she looked up as the realization  hit her.

 Musette lead   Connie over,  Good  evening, Mes amis ..LC.. would it  be permitted to have  ze  prisoner spend the  evening with me..

  well.. it was  part of the  ritual, to send the enemy off  with a good evening... Let me lay this out.. If she escapes.. You will take the long   walk for helping a prisoner escape... Understood?

 Qui, Mon LC....

 ..now?.. Connie? If you are caught aboard ship, i will personally fly  you to one of the Ape-Folk transports.. I hear they may be a little thin on Human-ape  hybryds .. MAybe    You could help them out...

 If..some how you'd  defeated the Best SEC in the fleet and    get into a fighter  and   get off the ship... I will  be in my  figher a heartbeat after i hear the news... I will find you..and I will Shoot you up, just enough to drift in space..where you will did  a very cold and lonely death, while i report that i  blew you to tiny bits...

 if..for what ever  reason.. you chose to kill yourself.. I'll make sure your body is dressed in ESN  Blue  and  sent  towards  the nearest know Empire activity... where you can be served up as a 'cold meal'...thus? allowing  you to serve  your master  one last time...

 ..now..go on you crazy kids  and have  fun... he grinned..bit there was no mirth.

 Dixie got up  a few moments after the walked away.....you...are as bad  as the Empire, I declare!

 Shadow shook his head,..nope.. I'm worse... My Bottle's full... and nothing is worse then  some one who wants  veneagance  because  we wil pay our enemies back..10 fold..

 ..what would have happened  if you would have surrendered to Sin on Aqra?

 ..frist?.  never  happen..no amount of threat would get me to surrender... kill hostages?.. Go ahead.. you'd  , most likely , kill them anyway.... Give me creds?... I don't care about Creds... Kill my  family?.. they done that already, for the most part... but... let's say, i gave in... and Joined the Red  Suit Wonders?..  by the next  day?.. most of them would be dead...fires would be burning  and i would be in the air, shooting anything that tried to take off..

  ..I..Think.. I'll go see  about  somethign to Drink....

 Beth Giggled, Lyri smiled..

 Jax looked with wide eyes  at  Shadow,wow?... LC.. you scared   all three of them? Do any of them Know you were  lying?

 Beth Giggled again,,..that's the Neat part, Jax.. The LC  doesn't lie..

  Jax  eyes  widened  a bit...

 ..Ok?.. one More song, and I'm gonna  take Larry for a Run....  Larry thumped his tail widely, as  Shadow went to nthe  Vid Machine.

"Weeeeelllll....." Roy stretched the word out.  "Let's be honest...sometimes he lies.  But never about something like that.  If Shadow warns you that doing something will lead to him killing you, he means it."

He looked over at Jax.  "But if it's a covert op and telling a lie will get Shadow closer to his target?  You bet he'll lie.  At least 7ntil he's facing his target and tells them they're about to die.  Then he's telling the truth again."

  Shadow   waves  to Everyone after he is done and Hands the Mic  to a Civi woman who   sings  a Sanri Love  song...

  Stopping at Shade, he says  he's Goign to run the Tunnels Shade  asked  to Come.. Shade  will ask   Orria  to collect his two Vid Boards, ..Roll will keep his... then the  PAir   will  move off   with LArry to the  Tunnels.


  It is to be noted , that Niona  seems to be having the Time of her life  with the others  Kids. Shadow stops by the table with the Mom and says,..see that? Looks  like she's having a great time..and the other  jids? well?  they feel like part of the group. because  Nina is a ' Hermes kid"..  the  right weapon, at the wrong  time..could send   us   all into The Black...no reason to stop the kids from enjoying themsleves..

 The Husband   nodded Meekly.. the   woman gave a chastised  smile.

  Watching the Red Dec from the Elevator  doors, he could see things like... Sneak making sure she took  the  'long way' around  the woman who refused to honor  the adoption..it was also plain to see that the Girls of the  Rec Dec, accepted her, like one of thier own..and her confidence  grew  with  each  table that  treated her like a 'waitress' and  not a 'stem kid'

 The Door Opened  Lt McNiel was stepping  out a bit  Red Faced  as she tried to fix her  Hair. , while one of the Angel Troopers  stood   at Attention.

 ..you have a litltle something.... he pointed to his own  lips.. and the Angel   wiped the Lipstick off  quickly...

 then..the  Three  headed for the  Tunnel level..

Re: RECDEC 7
With everything seemingly sorted out and back to how it had been, Harry would simply sit with Will and enjoy her beer as she listened to the music and watched the antics of the crew. As well as sharing a plate of chips and gravy, a British delicacy that she’d had to carefully explain to the serving staff, with Will she would quite happily chatter away about everything from the temperature of British beer to her taste in music, happy to just spend a little time with her boyfriend and forget all about the battle they had both fought.

Re: RECDEC 7
Viktor put his arm around Mortica’s shoulders, hugging her close as they enjoyed the music. It was a peaceful time, the sort he had hoped for when he departed Vampic space. He did not understand the humor there, as he did not comprehend every nuance of human behavior but he was happy that Mortica and Roll seemed to be enjoying themselves. Their happiness made him happy and he merely sat quietly with his love beside him.

Re: RECDEC 7
"This is a song for voice and a specific instrument. I am, however, learning more Earth music that I would love to play with you," Teela said as she opened the case and pulled out a most peculiar looking instrument.



"This is an ancient instrument from my home world called the Clàrsach or key harp. I'm going to play a sing a song thousands of years old in a dialect that is rarely spoken these days by anyone outside of academics. The song loosely translated is called Children of Two Kings' I hope everyone enjoys this song as much as I do."


She started to play by drawing the bow across the strings and was soon lost in the music.

Re: RECDEC 7
Things had kinda worn down until Garrat had swept in with the stem kids. Melia hadn't minded, a part of her wished she could've been out on the run but she would have needed to grab her workout gear. Most of the training these days involved using an old battle vest filled with weights that weighed in at about 20% heavier than the heavy battle armor. Plus ankle and wrist weights and a heavy metal bar to simulate carrying a weapon.  All the same it was nice to sit and watch the kids and watch Orria do more things.

ORRIA

Orria, for what it was worth was doing her best to be a leader and manage things  she was a little disappointed her best friend had left but also took great pride in helping. As it stood she helped reset and load games while she tip tapped away at her vidboard occasionally shooting Beth a frustrated look.

  People  were  leaving... others  were comign in.

  A small group of PIlot s  came  in, lookign sad, as they ha d just checked the  flight   rosters  and saw   , missing names.


…………

the waitresses  were gettign  Tired, but  sneak seemed to have a lot of  power left in her Cell , even to  the point  of helping   some of the olde3r waitresses who ha d bigger  orders, even it  if  meant she wasn't getting the tip.

………………………...

  Beth    finally caught  Orria , and   wacthed her   for a Moment... then...  did  sometappign of  her   own..

 Orria's  screen  went  Black..with  very  tiny   letters in the Middle.. when Orria  bent  down to try to  read them..  the screen  Brightened  with  , Venus Fly trap  animation snapping at her.....

 then her  screens  were  normal again.

 Roll was havign  fun.. he won most of the time.. but didn't seem to care if  he lost... he  was smilign away, just playing.

 Lifter  and Score  had to go home..  they waved  at the odd  set of  kids with GArrat..wondering  where they  came from.

Re: RECDEC 7
Orria

Orria jumped and screamed dropping her vidboard at the venus fly trap. Which of course triggered tears. They weren't the hurt or angry kind, but rather the surprised and frustrated at the outcome tears. The tired tears. So naturally the frustration and then embarrassment at the tears just snowballed and me it all worse. As Orria carefully picked up her vidboard looking it over. Occasionally shooting Beth a betrayed look.

MELIA
Malia watched the situation unfold and took a moment to wipe the smug smile off her face.  She had seen something of this nature coming and it did Orria good to learn the lesson now of choosing her battles more carefully. After a few moments she got up to check the vidboard and reassure Orria that everything was okay, she wasn't hurt and to listen to the young girls version of events. She gave Beth a wry smirking smile

  Beth  gave them both a wink as she  drank from her   beer.. then  stood  Up Giving   Roy and Lyri a Hug as she called it a night.

  when she walked   past  the Kidds   and Held out her hand  for Orria's  Vid  Board... then messed  witht eh  Keys a bit, and  hooked the  two boards together...

 when she  was  done.. she  held up a finger for  Orria  to wait, then   waved   Melia over.

  showing Melia hwo it worked, and letting Orria  see  was well, she  used the  camera  to take a picture  or Orria

 then a 3 inch Holo of  Orria appear on the top of her screen.. she pointed at the  differant  'worlds".. and picked on.. Holo Orria was  in a grassy firled  dresses like a Nivarian Warrior, she had a Bow   and  a pusle pistol..she  had a small LArg with her.....

 then she hit anothe rButton.. and    a BAt-thing  was  flying  towards  her.. and  she had to sue the controls to make  Holo Orria   aim at the beastie , while givign orders to the little holo larg.

  Beth said to  Melia.....it may be a bit Violent... but its nothign she hasn't been through, and movign the Holo  characte  wil give her  a bit more dexterity nad understanding  on angles and vectors  and such.. Shade made   it  last  year..i just punched up the holos...

Re: RECDEC 7
As Joseph began backing up Anteelas tune, after a few moments Nikki added some soft strings from her guitar to add to it, making sure not to over power Teelas instrument or Josephs.  Having been running and jumping and in general having fun with much of the other kids Haley finally returned.  She was breathing hard from trying to do some summersaults with a few other girls.  They were a bit older than her and had much better coordination, still she had fun.
When Teelas song was done Haley tugged a bit at Nikki then whispered in her ear.  Listening she smiled "Okay...What would you like."
Haley replied and shyly said almost questioning "Pasgetti?"
"Okay....How about spaghetti and meatballs, Milk too?"
Haley nodded.
"Okay..I was getting a bit hungry too...I'll be back.  Save some of the waitresses to have to walk so much"  She moved to one of the stalls before the 1800 cut off.  She ordered 3 plates of spaghetti and meatballs, or meat sauce, which ever they had, a milk, and an iced tea, and a soda.  She then saw they had desserts too.  She ordered 3 of the jellos, one green and the other two orange.  Then headed back to her table where Haley was sitting next to her guitar.  "Okay Kiddo....Spaghetti and meat sauce.  Got some cheese for it too.  A milk for you and tea for me.  I also got you some orange Jello.  Joseph...I owe you dinner..." she smiled at him "I hope you like italian.  Also got you a soda and an orange jello for desert."  placing the third plate for her along with the tea and lime jello for her and giving Joseph the soda.
