[When Gil appears on the network he has a deck of cards that he's shuffling as he speaks. The way he handles them shows that he's very comfortable with them, the movement of his hand almost fluid.]

You know what's a great game? Poker. Poker is a fantastic game, and a good way to get to know someone.

What do you fine people say to a regular game meetup? If we could get a group together, it could be a lot of fun.

'Course we'll have to hammer out the rules, even in the Milky Way not every planet or every casino on the same planet play by the same rules. We'd also have to find a place to meet to play, but I think that will be the easy part. Plenty of tables and chairs around.

[Tyrion's video clicked on once more, and yes, he's sitting in his New Engineering Station, with a lot more bits, and bobs, and all sorts of interesting new things that he can use in his inventions. He is, of course, eying the new tools suspiciously. Even more so the basket waiting for him, with a big red and gold bow.]

....Well. [He finally says.] Someone clearly wants to see what sort of trouble I can get myself into.

[He flicks the bow with one finger.] So is this a challenge, Atroma? You vs me in who can invent the most clever item to trip the other one up? Or are you truly sorry for what you've done?

[He tipped his head towards the camera.] Remember who you're dealing with. No one knows better than I that gifts from your enemies always have a hook inside them.

[He pulled loose the bow, a sharp smile on his face.]

When: The 9th - sometime these next few days.
(Note: feel free to take your time tagging this if you have a calibration with him! Or we can wrap it up quick or plan out the ending, whatever you prefer! No rush.)

[ACTION.]

[So — Sam got updated. Thank fucking christ. Nami, you'd better be ready for him to excitedly knock on your door at some point. You can also find Sam at The Space Bar, where he's right back to bar-tending. Feel free to stop by if you need him. But as everyone settles back into normalcy aboard the fleet, Sam makes a new entry to the network. Gotta air out that dirty laundry business.

A few days after they've returned home:]


[VIDEO.]

So, um. That was something, huh...?

[He clears his throat, drums his fingers on top of an old red book.]

Let's just clear the room — I wanted to apologize for... anyone who had gone into my head, or whatever you want to call it. I know there's a lot in there that isn't exactly pleasant to deal with. But I'm cool with it. I mean, I remember it all, and I'm totally fine with everything. So if you're worried about the whole trespassing thing... I'll get over it.

I'm just... I'm sorry, because I know some of it was... Yeah.

[He's dealt with worse. Far worse.]

There are some things for me to be thankful for, right now, in better news; I got a quick trip back home between the Marsiva and the Bloodsport. See, um... My brother, he made it out of a predicament in one piece when I was sure he was gone. And I did, too. Somehow. And I got to meet my mom. Like, in the flesh, as herself.

So as shitty as this month has been in some respects... I'm... just happy I've got her and my brother.

[Ehem.]

Anyway. Enough of the sappy serious stuff.

Anyone want to rent out a book? I'm starting to get quite a collection here.

I've got a list, I'll post it for you guys.

Takeshi will address the crew promptly when they return to the ship — it's up to him as captain to make sure everyone knows what's going on, right? So with a subdued tone, he says over the loudspeakers: "Captain, um, Takeshi here. Miss Opal and Miss Maggie have gone home... I know we're gonna miss them a lot, but let's hope they've got really nice people to go home to... Friends and families and things they had to do. Umm... Take care of each other, and remember that some of us don't seem t'stay still for long, so be nice and remind them how much you care 'bout them, just in case, okay...?"

A pause.

"They wouldn't want us to stay too sad, so... keep your chins up and let's do good things moving forward, so they'll be real proud of us."

Who: Crowley and you!
Broadcast: Fleetwide
Action: Málum - Iskaulit
When: Right now

[Crowley had checked the vast majority of his people were where they were supposed to be- annoyingly, Allen was passed out, but he's not going to share that with everyone because, well, he had more exciting news to share. He'd gone to check on his bar, and found the upgrades he'd paid for had finally borne fruit.

As such, he turns on the camera with a sharp-toothed grin. Bohemian Rhapsody can be heard faintly in the background (sometimes, the jukebox got stuck on it) as Crowley pans the camera to a slushie machine. Look at how that coloured ice sludge spins slowly. So delicious.
]

So! While we were having our fun little time in our own heads, it seems Málum has had a bit of an upgrade! We now have a bona-fide slushie machine. Which means we can have alcoholic slushies. So while you lot are drowning your sorrows about unwanted memories or...apparently celebrating coming out of a closet, you can do it with a boozy cup of flavoured ice.

Isn't that great?

[He could have bought him and Felix a bigger bedroom, he could have done that but no. This is what he devoted his credits on. This right here.]

If you come by with some emotional scarring from your calibrations, come by and I'll give you a single little slush for free. Just one mind.

...god knows how old she is now anyway.]


If you have any decent booze stashed away in your room, wanna help a girl out?  The Atroma's stocks are running low, and it sucks to begin with.

[Yeah, guess what she's doing in the kitchen.  Don't worry, if you come looking for said limited Atroma stocks, she'll still share.]

    [ Not long after the shuffle, there's a ripple of static over the network - loud, sudden, and seemingly with no origin. It's puzzling, but there's no indication that it's going to happen again...

    Until a minute later. Another surge of static comes in over the speakers, and then a voice - one some may find familiar, though not necessarily welcome, after all of this time... It's Diamond. Long time no speak, hmm?

    Clearly, not all is well. She sounds very far away, for one. For another, she sounds... skeptical, almost alarmed. There may actually be real concern in her voice. ]


    Again? Twice in one c--

    [ Her sentence is cut short with a strangled gasp, followed by a moment of silence. What follows may be the sound of metal dragged across metal, but it's hard to place. When she speaks again, it's uncharacteristically monotonous. ]

    ... Bring them in.

    [ A blip of lost time passes right after those words, before every passenger mysteriously wakes alone in their own unfamiliar room. The style of decor resembles that of the Marsiva's Hospitality Deck, if any passengers should remember what that's like. It sounds and smells the same as the host ship as well, all clean and chrome, but this set of rooms has only been used once, and for the very same purpose that befalls the fleet contestants now.

    As for their hosts, there is no immediate sign of them, though some may recall a series of hideous, half-electronic screams before their memories begin to blur upon arrival...

    Welcome back to the Marsiva, dear passengers. It's time for round two of calibrations. ]

He shifts it again, and the screen changes, narrows, with a small bit of scripts running along the top. He sighs, shakes his head a little.]

    I need someone who has the communications augment. This ... this is not secure enough. It is secure, but not secure absolutely. Which is what we require.

    Action: aboard the Goldstone
    When: now?

    [Maggie had only been absent for what was a couple days, upon looking through prope channels to access such a thing. All the same she knows that physically she is both the same as when she left the fleet and different from when she was last home. When she addresses the network, she has one hand over her stomach, still feeling lost in the absence of the child she and Glenn had wanted. Clearly that wasn't to be any more.

    Clearing her throat, Maggie pushes her bangs out of her face before speaking. Her hair was long again and would need to be cut. Perhaps a project for Enid once again, or someone else. There were still so many thoughts in her head that hair was the last thing on her mind.
    ]

    I, uh, I got to experience that whole deep sleep thing I've heard about - where some people come back different than what they were or rememberin' things that they didn't know before. I just wanted to let folks know that I'm back - specifically my crew. I'll still answer questions but I think I'll just keep my Lab work to my room for now. I... I could use some time to process, I guess. Or wake up.

    [Because she still feels as if she's woken up into a nightmare, but at least she's a bit more at peace than if things had just happened. She's had time to grieve and to think her next steps through.]

    If anyone needs anything important, please let me know.

    Private Message: Enid

    Hey. I'm sorry about before. About not knowing you. I remember now. All of it, actually.

    [She takes a breath, trying to calm the flow of thoughts still circling about.]

    Could you cut my hair again? If that'd be alright by you.

    Private Message: Daryl

    Hey.

    [She takes a less steady breath than when she'd messaged Enid, feeling her eyes burn somewhat.]

    Daryl, can we please talk?

    [She was hoping he'd let her talk to him, so that the two of them could sort things out together.]

    Or maybe I could just come visit an' sit with you a while. I haven't been able to hear how you're settling in. Sorry, I- some things happened, thanks to the Atroma, but I'm alright.

    For those who knew him, Sora's gone.

    [He's checked every asteroid, the party, god, even some other ships. He came up empty. He runs his thumb invisibly over the wayfinder Sora made for him way back when-- a good luck charm for the seraph with incredibly bad luck.

    There's never enough time.]

    Action: The Marsiva if anyone else is on it just yet (he's alone isn't he?)
    When: Today

    [The subject of this post obviously doesn't know he's being recorded. This is the Marsiva being all nice and broadcasting it's latest arrival's first steps in his new world for all the universe to see.

    He's first shown wearing nothing but a frumpy, sweatsuit that's seen many, many, many better days (even with the cleaning that had happened) marked with an "A" on the front. His hair is in his face, dirty and greasy and it looks like it hadn't been washed in weeks. It hides his identity for the time being as he shuffles around the medical bay, quietly exploring his surroundings. He's rubbing at his right side, just below the shoulder, on his chest.

    Every so often he reaches out to brush fingers lightly over a surface or an item as he moves out of the medical bay and into the main living quarters where he'll be for the week. Though he doesn't quite know that yet, of course. He keeps shuffling along until he reaches the bunks and lockers. He opens one to find clothing in his size.

    The camera doesn't pan away as he shucks his sweatsuit - under which he's wearing nothing - and the scars littering his back are visible for all to see. A mess of parallel lines scattered across every inch of skin and interrupting the tattoo on the right half (a pair of what could be angels or could be demons, hard to tell). It's not visible for long, because he's quick to pulls on the offered briefs and undershirt. The jumpsuit comes next and it being sleeveless is a blessing to him because he prefers the sleeveless life. But in terms of viewership, it allows his nicely muscled arms to remain seen. Once more his fingers stray to his right side, just below his shoulder, on his chest. Like he expects something to be there that isn't.

    He apparently has a thing against shoes because he doesn't pull any on as he turns back around, front to whatever camera was trained on him. Finally lifts his head enough for his face to be seen before he starts looking around for a communications array.

    It's only when he gets to a console and brings up the menu that the video switches to a close up shot of his face. Exactly what one would expect from a ship to ship video feed.]


    Alright, asshole, I'm pulling up the 'appropriate communication channels' so get your ass over here and answer me.

    [The words came out as a low, annoyed grumble that didn't have much force to it. Apparently the silence of the feed up to that point had been intentional.]

His crew may have noticed the three-month-long growth spurt, but it may have flown from under the radar.

    He holds up a ruler proudly and wags it around.]


    Almost a whole ruler taller, guys! The aging thing really worked! I just put some credits in and — bam!

    [He fans his longer arms out, blissful in not being small enough to lob in the air. What's up!]

    What kindsa' stuff have you guys bought on the computer? Not ship stuff, but stuff for you. They got so much stuff on there, I don't know how anyone can pay for all of it.

But hey, he's got this whole work-out routine thing down pat. Nearby, of course, his little panda babe Hoi Hoi is sitting on his rocking horse, a handful of toys scattered around for him to enjoy while his not!dad works.

He even got a pet rock for shits and giggles, though he has kind of abandoned it on his little desk in his room, which he's finally sitting down at after a long day of working. He's humored himself in buying something more rocker-style, all thanks to some of the interesting shops down on the asteroid belts. With a grin he says -- ]

    Well? Let's hear it: weird crap you've bought, go.

    [He slides the pet rock box over, chuckling.]

    ... These were popular for a short time on earth, in the 70's. Some guy just... chatted with some buds in a bar about how hard it was to take care of actual pets, so he made these and sold over a million of them -- in fact, it made him a millionaire. Pretty impressively weird, right? Maybe even the most successful selling of weird. Unless you guys can top that.

    At least Beanie Babies are kind of cute on a shelf. A pet rock -- who knows.

    But now I can fit in with everyone who has an animal aboard. I bet you guys 20 credits mine is easier to potty train.
