Who: Dorian Pavus & You!
Broadcast: Fleetwide
Action: Lyuku & Marsiva
When: 9/13

[ Waking up in an unfamiliar place surrounded by unfamiliar things is certainly high on the list of disturbing things Dorian has experienced, on par with seeing a future that should never exist. It takes little time to figure this communicator business out, and somehow, he knows how to operate it despite never having seen it. Mark number two for 'this place is disturbing'. After a while, he opens the communicator and turns on the video feed. That is a very well-manicured mustache.. ]

From what I understand, and feel free to correct if I'm mistaken, but we've been spirited away by a seemingly-benevolent entity. Furthering that, we are given information that, by all accounts, should be impossible, yet here we are!

[ This entire tirade is complimented by a wide flourish, gesturing to his surroundings. ]

What, you thought that was simply the beginning? Turns out, we visit entirely different places, and this one happens to have something happening to it. A might convenient, I daresay. Oh, but let's not forget, we're entertainment! Steal the spotlight, win the show and get to leave. Sounds simple enough, but has this actually happened to anyone you are aware of?

[ The streets are colorful, if not a bit crowded, but not unpleasant. It's difficult to not want to spend hours winding through the stalls of the bazaar. He has a few credits to spend, but Dorian doesn't feel the immediate need to part with them in case there is something that strikes his fancy at the end. However, that won't stop him from browsing and trying to get a better deal. Maybe he stops to feed a strawberry to one of those dragonesque lizards. Definitely not picking it up, though. It can stay right where it is. He could also be found perusing the more mystical wares- tables of crystals and bottled herbs that he's absolutely unfamiliar with but intrigued by. ]

Fortune Telling;;
The beck and call of a few extra credits doesn't elude him, though really he doesn't see how he has the 'look' of a fortune teller- and he would have had half a mind to be offended had she meant anything by it. The orange-skinned woman had wanted a bit of shut eye, so Dorian finds himself sitting under a canopy surrounded by lots of musty tapestry and gleaming strands of beads. The crystal ball and stack of cards could be laughable. If he weren't superb at being incredibly charming. ]

I have a good sense about your future, care for a reading?

[ Hit Dorian up with something else! On the Marsiva, seeing the sights? Sure! ]

Who: Anders and Open
Broadcast: Yes
Action: On the Bishop, if desired
When: Thirty seconds after being shuffled onto the ship

[The feed turns on and it's clear Anders has barely just arrived on his new ship as there's still some confetti in his hair he has yet to brush off or pick out. He's clearly on the move, however, as the hallways of the Bishop move behind him on his way to the Med Lab.]

Right, I need to take some inventory: there was a greenhouse on the Iskaulit that held some medicinal herbs, if anyone knows, has it been maintained? [Maker knew if Hermione were still around, he'd really had yet to even check who was still around.] And, similarly, there was a smaller herb garden in the cargo bay of the Twin Roses, is that still there?

[He pauses as something occurs to him and he gives a wry smirk.] And, in my haste, I shouldn't be so rude, my apologies. I am Anders, a healer from Thedas. I imagine my store of potions from before is long gone, I intend to get started on more. If anyone has need of any potion in particular, please feel free to speak up, I'm more than willing to make whatever it might be.

[Assuming he knew how to make it or something like it, but his skill with herbalism wasn't something he took lightly.]

Who: Worf and OPEN
Broadcast: Fleetwide
Action: SS Vanquish
When: 2nd September

[Worf had already spoken with certain members of the fleet regarding blade and martial arts training. He'd also talked about weapons with Jill Valentine regarding types of weapons. Right now, he was within the training room of the SS Vanquish, pushing up some heavy weights above his shoulders. It was good to stretch his muscles once more. Letting the weights slowly to the floor, he addressed the network;]

For those who wish to train with me I am within the training room of the SS Vanquish. Sokka? You wish to learn how to wield your Bat'leth? I will teach you the ancient Klingon ways if you wish.

[He grabbed a towel and wiped his brow for a few moments.]

Jill? I am still interested in discussing weapons from your world. If you wish to spar with me I would welcome the challenge.

[Because Worf could face as many opponents as the fleet could throw at him.]

[ it seems to be a once-in-a-six-months-thing, Steve Rogers addressing the network like this. it's always when there's something official to say, business to attend to.

he doesn't seem too good at communicating anything else through these. at least he did away with the uniform. this post sees him in a simple black t-shirt and jeans.

and not all too cheerful, big surprise. ]

If you have any official business or need anything from the Starstruck, take it up with me for the time being. I know most of us stocked on things at the planet but if there's anything that you need, just send a word over, we'll see what we can do.

[ that's it for this subject. no, he doesn't want to explain why he's stepping up to the active role of a ship captain, thank you very much.

in fact, he almost looks awkward in light of the next matter: ]

I don't suppose anyone has any spare bags of sand? I could use a bit.

[ he doesn't explain that odd request, either. ]

Who: Jon Snow & Open
Broadcast: Fleetwide
Action: N/A
When: 8/11

[The shouts of the Northern men was still ringing in his ears as he opened his eyes, the quiet of the ship piercing through him. The familiar stones of Wintefell were replaced by steel and machinery he didn't recognize but for some reason least in passing. Space, ships and other information he had never considered before were fresh in his mind. The darkness beyond the windows was not so mysterious or strange, though it still filled him with the same awe he felt when he stood atop the Wall for the first time.

It took time for his current imprisonment and state to at least hit him, the shock slowly wearing off the longer he sat in silence. After a few hours, he felt ready to turn to the network for the answers he wouldn't find on the Marsiva.]

My name is Jon Snow.

[There seemed little reason to ask about escape, as it seemed there were so many still here. If they could leave by their own will, they would have by now.]

Who are the men that have captured us? Are they taking us somewhere in particular or is this holding cell meant to travel without destination?

Who: Barry Allen + YOU
Broadcast: Fleetwide
Action: First Breath for post-video things or Planetside, take your pick!
When: August 2nd-ish.

[video ~ fleetwide]
[And here is Barry! Looking less worrisome than when the fleet first met him, but still trying to figure out his way around this place.]

Hi, guys. It's Barry. I was wondering if there were any food specialists, or scientists, or food scientists around who might be able to do me a favor.

For those who don't know, I have a super high metabolism which results in me needing to eat like, ten thousand calories a day, which is really bad in enclosed areas like the ships where there are limited supplies and multiple people that need to share them. But, my buddy Cisco, who some of you may remember from when he was here, built me these high calorie protein bars so I can eat like a normal human and still get all the calories I need.

Cisco's not here now, but in those baskets that we got from Atroma, I got a few of those bars as a gift, and I was wondering if anyone here might be able to reverse engineer them somehow? If you could I would be incredibly grateful. I can even pay you for them, and they might be helpful for the fleet as a whole, since I know I'm not the only one here with ... metabolism issues.

[He's not going to out them publically, but the Kara (and possibly Mon-El?) know who they are.]

So hit me back if you're interested. Thanks.

[and with that, it's bye bye Barry.]

    Who: Enid
    Broadcast: Fleetwide
    Action: Marsiva, and later the SS Vanquish
    When: right now

    Marsiva - action + network
    [Waking with a start in an instinctual panic that takes away from her normally pretty features, the first few minutes of this girl on the feed are nothing new. She jumps up quickly to the unfamiliar surroundings knowing in her gut this is wrong and feeling she has to find a way out, to run home before the person responsible came back. But more and more, as the seconds pass, it becomes clearer to her the situation goes beyond an average kidnapping. There device filming her is something she first ignores thinking what any person from her world would: it is non-functioning and there only as a reminder of what was. She's smart though and soon sees it is actually filming her. She can imagine a few reasons why, like ensuring she wasn't laying in wait to jump out and fight if they came back, but she pushes the reasons she comes up with to the back of her mind so they don't away from her concentration. She locates the communications device as she is supposed to.

    The panic on her features fade for forced calmness, courage. She stands there facing the screen, finding it in her to make a statement, before deciding to voice them to the world or whom ever was watching.]

    I don't know why you took me. [She pauses for a moment, taking a breathe in. Clearly she doesn't remember how it happened either by the small uncertain look on her face.] But if you just let me go, I promise I won't cause you any trouble. No one will come bother you after. Do we have a deal?

    SS Vanquish - action
    [What good is one surprise without another? Just when she thinks she is getting her bearings with where she was, Enid teleports to the bridge of another place she doesn't recognize at all. The SS Vanquish. With the confetti, the tune of music meant to be welcoming, and cupcakes somehow in hand, she freezes in place with a look of shock, without batting an eyelash at anyone that approuch.]

    Action: On the Vanquish!
    When: Now!

    [It wasn't like it was hard to figure out; Clay contacts Apollo often, just to talk about everything and nothing. And today, he tried to do it again, only to get an error. He knows what it means, yet he tries again, again and again, until it really sinks in.

    He gives himself some time to scream into a pillow, you know, normal reaction to the knowledge that your best friend left, most likely for good, before picking up his comm again. Part of him thinks it'd be good to address via video, but he doesn't really trust himself to do it. After some debate, he decides to just text instead.]

    hey so uh

    if anybody knew a guy named apollo justice he went back to his world

    dont get me wrong its a good thing!! he really didnt like it here

    hes afraid of heights and u cant get any higher than space right

    lol he was practically becoming a hermit with how much he stayed on his ship

    so yeah

    its good

    hes apollo justice after all

    he'll be fine!!!!

    [Ugh, that sucked. But... whatever. After the loss of some other friends of his, and now Apollo, that's about the best he's got to give for today.]

    Action: Vanquish
    When: Today!

    [ The feed starts out with Hermione sitting on her bed, looking absolutely miserable. It's obvious that she hasn't slept, not really, and when she speaks her voice is quiet and, more than anything, sad. ]

    Cisco isn't here anymore. [ She's lost people before, but she never gets used to it. It's never fair, and it's not right. It's not right that you get to be this close to people and then they get taken away from you. ] I don't think he's the only one that's gone this time, but it's - I don't think it's my place to talk about anyone else.

    [ She's doing this because Cisco was her partner, after all. Her boyfriend. She'd been so happy.

    I'm not sure what's left in his lab, but - I didn't want to touch anything. I'm sorry for anyone that knew him, but... He's probably happier at home, so it's okay in the end.

    [ The feed cuts off, abruptly, because she didn't want to think about it anymore - it was easier to just turn it off and put the device to one side and pretend for a little while. ]

    When: Shortly after he wakes up and has had time to explore a bit, so sometime in the middle of the "day"

    [The video shows a man wearing a black T-shirt and coat. He is smiling and seems to be happy and cheerful. He has the strap of a sports bag over his shoulder. One hand is to his face, a finger touching his lips.

    Despite having just woken up in the middle of space with no idea how he got here, he seems completely at ease.]

    I wish someone had told me I was going to be on television today. Honestly, I'm grateful that you took me on my way home from practice because it means I have my skates, but I would have dressed up for the occasion had I known. A nice suit perhaps? At least a decent sweater. [He hand moves down to grip the sports bag's strap.]

    I could look so much better given a little bit of notice. [Then he winks, and it's not clear if that's meant for anyone who is receiving this message, the much bigger audience they're told exists, or just because he likes winking.

    Then, after a moment, he gets to the true purpose of this message.]

    Oh, and if anyone has seen Yuuri Katsuki please let me know. He's Japanese, about 173 centimeters in height, has black hair and brown eyes, and wears glasses. Let him know that Victor is looking for him if you see him, hm?

Thedas is still royally screwed in so many different ways and Anders.... There is no way he would have returned absent his ghostly roommate.

    So... when's the next family reunion? We've got a lot of catching up to do if I haven't met over half of you. I can bring something. A casserole? Is that normal?

    [Humorous pondering aside, Fie does actually have a reason for the broadcast.]

    I wanted to know who's in charge of the gardens on the Iskaulit, or who I ask about helping out. Or if anyone is. Should I just start working there? [That's more words than she uses most of the time.]

    Action: SS Blameless
    When: Saturday morning

    [For the general public and the Blameless crew, this isn't going to be a surprise, but Shiro is awake pretty damn early. Well, at least for whatever counts as "early" in space. The feed starts at crazy o'clock with Shiro in the seating area, a warm cup of tea in his hands, an open crate next to him and a soft smile on his lips.

    What is he smiling at? The plushies on the table. Five lions of different colors and sizes, standing in a very specific order, even if most people probably won't get it and will think the line should be organized by size. And next to the lions, two small plushies: the cutest mice.]

    I kept hearing horror stories about these "drops", but this isn't so bad. I like them. Thanks to whoever send them. [Being nice to the public for the sake of his crew's ratings? You betcha. He takes a sip of his tea before asking to the camera.] Hey, Keith, how many red ones do you want?

    [Yeah, it's not a matter of if, bro is getting at least one. An idea hits Shiro then and he puts his cup down to start moving the lions around to make a pile, and it will look even weirder this time, because the big black one doesn't go to the bottom. No, he puts the blue and the yellow ones next to each other, then the red one on top of the blue one, green goes on yellow, and on top goes black...

    But Shiro pauses, frowning, when he notices a post-it note stuck to the lion's belly. He doesn't read it aloud, but text appears on the screen as his eyes skim it.]

    Shiro gets nightmares if he doesn't sleep with his lion.

    [Shiro tenses, obviously not liking the note at all, because yeah, half of it is true. And it's hitting him right now that some strangers out there know. Just like that, the feed is turned off - well, the video feed at least. Because Shiro keeps reading the messages afterwards, so of course they keep appearing on the screen, one for each plushie.]

    Shiro isn't his real name.
    Shiro burns water.
    Shiro and Keith haven't reached third base.
    Shiro sinks even in small lakes.
    Shiro can't grow a worthy mustache.

    Ok, the sooner we leave this stupid planet the better!!! before I will go all The Shining on the Atroma's sorry alien asses!!

The others are nowhere around—something that set off all of the panic buttons in his brain—and he is mostly definitely not in a water craft.

    The air is chilled, but there's no salty tang. He's warm and feels as if he's enveloped in a blanket. After a few moments of trying to get his bearings, he leaves what appears to be a bed in a...medical type room. A search of his person turns up his cellphone, his notebook, pen and... another communications device. He takes a few seconds to appraise it before opening to use the item.]

    Hello. I'm not sure whom I'm addressing, but my name is Ignis Scientia. As I appear to be new to this place and there are others here as well, I would like to know where I am and what is going on.

    [The look on his face says that if you waste his time, he will hang up on you.]

    I'd like to offer my services to any exploration teams going down into the depths. My alchemy can be used to reshape metal, and the weapons sold in the shops here might be useful for whatever is lurking. I also have a Security augment, so if anybody needs some muscle to come along on their expeditions... I'm game.

    I just hope we can figure out what's going on. I'm working under the assumption that Atroma's going to move us onward soon, whether we want to go or not... and we'll have to leave these people behind, no matter what condition they're in.
