It's all over but the crying

Who: Psycho Mantis and you.
Broadcast: Yes
Action: SS Bishop
When: Today

(Video – Fleetwide)


My god, it’s full of stars.


[He wandered around the ship in a bit of a daze. First came the larger ship, then the small celebration welcoming him to the second, and he is just as confused as he was when he first woke up. It’s been a long couple of days for him and he finds his way to the bridge of the ship. Stars. So many stars, He slumps in one of the many chairs nearest the window looking out onto space. There’s a cup of tea in his hand and his head turns between the feed he managed to open and the view.]


It’s a dream, isn’t it? It has to be. I remember what happened.


[He’s still dressed in his leathers, not quite trusting himself to wear the ship standards just yet. It’s so clinical. So real… He curls up more in the chair, lifting his mask a little out of the way to have a sip.]


This ship is called Bishop. Like the clergymen and the chess piece. If…anyone is out there, where is here?


(Action – Bishop)


[Still on the bridge of the ship, Mantis decides to make use of the music system to play something classical in the hopes of soothing some of his confusion. The tea doesn’t hurt either, and he sighs heavily as he tries to count the stars he can see. His malaise is such that someone could reasonably sneak up on him if they were so inclined. He is making good company with the chair he singled out.]

Why yes, it is full of stars. Funny how space can be like that.

[The man is mysterious, calm but dressed in a fedora and fancy clothes. Watch this one, Mantis. His voice is one of refinement, a soft eloquent accent, which resembles that which comes from someone rather powerful.]

There is no gas aboard these ships, so you need not wear a gas mask.

Oh, I would not ask you to remove it just for my sakes. A man wears a mask for a reason and sometimes that reason needs to remain a secret.

[Don't mind this guy. He likes to talk in riddles.]

Psycho....Mantis. An interesting name I must say, yet a curious one at that. In what way do you reflect the mantis' long, powerful claws, which grab passing insects?

[Ardyn had no idea why anyone would be called that. Perhaps, it was his nickname?]

The Atroma; they bring us here against our will and place us within these ships for their viewers avid entertainment.

[Shay is rather confused herself as to how she got here, and where here is, but right now, she's rather concerned for the person on the other side of the video. They seem a bit...in shock.]

Are you well?

[personal profile] pickingupgoodvibrations 2017-07-31 04:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[She could ask the same. That is a strangely shaped face! Almost like a bug.]

Oh! I am Balmeran. [Shay smiles.] My name is Shay.

[He'd have to be very, very lost in his own thoughts if Looma's approach took him by surprise. Even if he didn't hear the heavy footsteps approaching, she was large enough he'd probably be able to feel them by the time she got to the bridge. She's big, but just small enough to make it through the doorway, if she angles herself right. Not a tight fit, but it might be wise to avoid trying to squeeze past her in the future.]

Another new face? [figuratively speaking, anyway]

I am beginning to wonder what is responsible for the Bishop's sudden popularity.

[She's not...terribly social, so the giant four-armed, four-eyed war princess makes her way over to her own chair. She might as well start reading the updated personnel list, if only to figure out just what to expect from this person. From what little information it would provide, that is- but even knowing what augment he'd picked up would be useful.]
tough_love: (Smirk)

[personal profile] tough_love 2017-08-01 09:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Okay there is definitely a smug little smirk going on now. Much as she has actually tried to get used to working with people- instead of, well, terrorizing them- there's still plenty of satisfaction to be found in these sorts of reactions. Even if it was more out of surprise than fear, hey, she'd take it.]

I am its captain. I am Princess Looma of House Red Wind. And none of us chose to be brought here.

[She hoped not anyway. Whoever willingly signed on for this was the sort of depraved individual who'd benefit the galaxy most by being sent out an airlock.]

Your first time in space, huh. It all starts to blur after a while, a little like staring out into the ocean. You can't tell one point from another.

I'm on the Heron. I'm afraid I can't tell you where here is, though.
torsion: (plancha.)

[personal profile] torsion 2017-08-04 01:01 am (UTC)(link)
Same here, pal.

A few. I actually haven't asked. There's at least five or six.

[Sayid isn't trying to sneak up on anyone. He's just come up to the bridge to access the network from the comm station, because needed or not he likes to spend at least an hour or so a day at his post.

...But maybe his footfalls are softer than they need to be. In any event, he passes through the open hatch door, moves towards the comm station, and...

Ah. Well. That's a distinctive new face. Distinctive being...the very very operative word here.]


Hello. I don't think we've met.

[personal profile] redatheart 2017-08-05 07:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's true, there's a not small populations of aliens in the Fleet.

Sayid crosses the space between them to offer his hand. Mantis' name gets him to raise an eyebrow. But then again, he now lives with a very large red alien princess with four arms sooooo...he's less taken aback with the man in general than he could be.]


Sayid Jarrah. Communications.

[Khadgar looks empathetic at least, as he turns on his own communicator. He knows what it's like, being from a time when the stars are out of reach. Or uncommon, at least. He's trying not to make assumptions.]

You're a part of Atroma's 'intergalactic reality show.' I'm sorry, it's definitely not a dream. I'm Khadgar.

Psycho Mantis? [Strange name but he really can't judge. He's literally named 'trust' after all.] It's nice to meet you. I'm assigned to the Twin Roses.

[He was a sort of veteran here now, wasn't he? He wasn't the new kid in the fleet anymore, not by a long shot. But it wasn't until this broadcast that he really felt like he had to usher someone into the fold.

He got onto his communicator too.]


Hello, I am Yuri Katsuki and I live on the Twin Roses right now... this is the fleet, we're all kidnapped here to entertain the intergalactic masses. I don't know much but I can help you with what I do know.
