Who: Kirk + Fellow Captains and First Mates
Broadcast: Yes
Action: Yes; On the Marsiva
When: After this post

[ Broadcast ]
Given the recent events, I think it is prudent that all current captains and their first mates meet. It has been some time since we've had one, to my knowledge, and I believe it to be in our better interests to discuss the change in circumstances.

I'll secure a space that can fit us all, and let you know where and when soon.

[ Action ]
[ Kirk had secured a space that was both relatively private and large enough to fit all of the captains and first mates. At least being on the Marsiva meant that everything here was more or less neutral ground, even if it didn't feel like the safest place to meet per say. But putting this off until they got off it didn't feel right either, so best to make the most of it.

Hopefully all the captains would come, and their first mates, and they could try to make sense of the most recent events. Because someone had to, right? ]

I've decided to let Robb go home and be a corpse once again. Thanks for all the amazing cr, logs and fun! Seeker will be going to Kitty, Riona will have his sword. All off his other possessions will be divided between his close CR (fluffy cloak, leather breeches, cool stuff like that).

Once again thanks for everything <3

Hello Drifters! You may remember last time I made the document with the information from the heist, I said we could edit it in the future to add anything we keep discovering. And that chance has arrived sooner than expected thanks to the death of our lovely hosts!

Ahem. We have two sources this time, so gather around and let's shake our fists at Atroma together!

1) The new hosts
Ngl I don't think they will be saying much, but I'll add the, ahem, "incident" to the document. So if your character is talking/will talk to them and they get some thing useful from that thread, comment here if you want it on the document! I'll try to stalk it but Shiro isn't talking to them for messy IC reasons so I may miss something. And permission to use your threads is nice. :>

2) The glitches
Now this is the big deal. I can just copy/paste the info from the ooc post, but the thing is, characters need to do a big effort for this one, with the taking notes not to forget and all. SO! I need confirmation that at least one character of each group is doing the reminder-to-self trick or that particular piece of information won't make it to the document. I'm gonna list the jobs we need for each section to catch 'em all, will add names that have it covered as people comment.

A) Pilot OR Communications
-Yuan (Comms), Nami (pilot), Keith (pilot)
B) Engineering OR Maintenance
-Sokka (Engineering), Tyrion (Engineering), Kirito (Engineering)
C) Lab support OR Cook (either, though having the difference on doors bit would be nice)
-Allen (lab support)
D) Security OR Tactical Support
-Okita Souji (Security)
E) Personnel
F) Psychics and other supernaturally-sensitive characters

It saddens me, but I'm going to have to drop Jaime. I've had a great time here, but I've been struggling, and I think this is for the best.

I'll miss you all, though, and I may come back with a different character in the future!

Hello, Flooters! Activity check is going to start on 6/28, so please make sure that your characters' activity requirements are listed next to their names on the June AC spreadsheet.

As a reminder, Upgrades are completely optional, but we'll be processing any and all orders at the end of the month.

A couple days have passed, and there are still no clear signs of when (or even if) the Drift Fleet's passengers will get to leave this strange wing of the Marsiva. Calibrations continue during the "night" cycles, for those who can remember the experiences.

But one more strange thing starts happening during their stay! It's entirely opt-in, but if anyone wants a little more for their characters to investigate and chew on, it's here to be discovered!

Those who were a part of calibrations last year might remember some of these discoveries - if they remember anything at all about them… but this year, there are more surprises to find! So even if you remember this plot from last time, give it another read-through, there’s still something new for everyone!

[You know that giant screen beside the mysterious counter? It turns out that it's not just there to watch cartoons on. A couple days after that ominous broadcast, an old jingle rings from the speakers... and the screen beams to life.

Veteran passengers may remember the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Diamond. But today the special guest is someone different: a woman perhaps in her twenties, with perfect red curls and eyes of a near-glowing shade of aquamarine. She smiles with blood-painted lips.]

Good morning, dear passengers. [Her voice is the very definition of svelte.] I apologize for any inconvenience you’ve experienced in the past few days. We’ve been having some… technical difficulties, so we’ve gathered you all together while we iron those out.

[She draws her nails along the desk in front of her. Click, click, click.]

Please, please make yourself comfortable-- and do let us know if you need anything.

[She isn’t alone. Another appears - a figure in a suit, hair cut short and eyes harboring the same near-glow as the redheaded lady she moves to stand beside. There’s a smile playing at the edge of her own purple-painted lips as she casually drapes an arm over her co-host’s shoulders, though her attention is clearly on the camera -- the viewers. The cameras are rolling and the show must go on, after all.]

We hope your stay here is a restful one. You deserve a break after all the hard work you’ve done this season, don’t you agree? And of course, we’re more than glad to help with that. So please, make yourselves right at home.

[And there’s a suave, charming wink for the camera~]

[ooc: The new hosts will be taking a few questions. Feel free to say something! Also be sure to check out the plot update!]

My dears, I regret to say that I'm dropping, and Cat is going home to.... well, either sleep with the fishes in the river, or terrorize Lannisters as Lady Stoneheart, depending on your canon of choice. It's been fun, and I'll miss ya'll. Hopefully, we will meet again someday.

[It’s been nice and peaceful for a few days, hasn’t it? Everyone in their little cages with their creature comforts, learning all about each other through the strange rooms that have opened up at night… It’s been a wonderful experience, wouldn’t you agree? For some, that blood-curdling scream from the first day has not been forgotten.

A few days into calibrations, the main screen that has been conspicuously silent (aside from passenger use) flickers to life. Anything already playing on the screen is overwritten by a video feed of plain metallic walls not unlike those housing the Passengers. It’s difficult to tell what is going on offscreen. Shadows are uncertain, dancing everywhere; nothing can be gleaned from the shapes no matter how much they are analyzed.

The audio, however, is loud and clear.]

—can’t do this to us, [a woman pleads, her usual saccharine tone absolutely dripping with fear. Some may recognize the voice as belonging to Diamond.] You can’t! We followed orders exactly. It was in the terms! I don’t underst… oh no. No, no, please no don’t do this no no NO NO NO!

[Her voice increases in pitch and tremor until it’s drowned out in a garbled shriek of pain. The shadows dancing on the wall grow frantic and violent. The show is accompanied by sounds of heavy things slamming and the unmistakable whirring of a drill.]


[The woman’s shrieking cuts off immediately. In the newfound silence, something else drags itself weakly across the floor, getting closer and closer to the camera. SLAM. Until that stops, too.

A man’s voice comes through this time, thready and weak like a dying heartbeat. It's Beau, though he hasn't been heard by Passengers for quite some time.]

A-and now… you come for me. [The speaker makes a choked sound like a laugh or a sob.] All we ever did... was try to... make you happy.

[The whir of the drill begins again, but the feed ends.]

Hi, guys. You may remember me as that weirdo who applied as Yuri Katsuki and then disappeared for a while.

Well, I am here to tell you all that that's all over! I was the maid-of-honor in a recent wedding and I just completed a lot of testing/training with my career. I am not provisionally certified in a new program! Some of you were aware I had a lot going on but I want to apologize for my slowness and announce I am back to being available. No more late nights studying or making table centerpieces. Huzzah!

I will tag everyone in my inbox. If Yuri has a thread with you and I seem to have neglected it, please pm Yuri's account. If you'd prefer to drop Yuri's thread with you bc it's been a while I get that too so feel free to pm Yuri's account for that too!

Who: Rick Grimes & You.
Broadcast: Fleetwide.
Action: On the special part of the ship for the Calibrations.
When: Until his ship placement.

[ Ever since Negan entered into his life, things were all turned upside down and nothing made any sort of sense. But his current predicament took things to a whole new level and he really didn't know what plan of action to use first. He needed a direction to go in but for any to work he first needed information. The strange communication device and the broadcast capabilities seemed his best chance at the moment.

Letting out a deep sigh, he sat down and readied himself, attempting to appear not as frantic or angry by his current situation. In the very least, the scent of blood had faded but the chill lingered as if it seeped too deeply down inside of him. Would the screams ever leave when he happened to fall asleep?

In space. Why would he ever believe in such a thing? It just couldn't be possible. ]

I've had my fill of this and I need to return to my daughter with my people. Things are - the rest of the group needs me. [ A deep sigh passed his slightly cracked lips. ] What is this place? Where am I now? There isn't any information here.

[ Sitting up straighter, he tilted his head to the side. ] What are the demands? The terms of this? [ A negotiation always existed for things and Rick had a lot of experience making them. ]

( action. )

[ Later on, he can be found trying to comb every inch of the place for clues and information. In general, making a complete mess of things. ]

[personal profile] castintoflames posting in [community profile] driftfleet
Who: Maedhros & Open
Broadcast: Marsiva
Action: On the Marsiva.
When: Evening

(A voice, beginning softly and then rising in volume, can be heard aboard the Marsiva this eve. Technology brings it to others - the ship is large - not that the singer entirely notices. A bright tumble of fiery hair obscures the picture momentarily before a certain tall Elf steps back. Yet the singing continues and Maedhros's eyes are distant, lost in memory.

The notes reach pitches that are almost keening, but the melody always softens, always returns to a pleasant level. Until the end, that is. The keening returns, then, and the Elf shows his prowess with song - something he will deny until death and beyond - by singing notes that are quick and passionate like flames. His eyes reflect despair and grief before assuming a look of grim determination.

But every song must end and his cannot carry on. He absently brushes back his hair - which is loose from all braids - and finishes securing his prosthetic arm in place.)

Hello everyone! I'm Trix and I'm brand new here and very excited. I'm bringing in Rick Grimes (the walking dead) and he's none too pleased about being somewhere he doesn't know all the details about. He'll be trying to explore and gather information about everything. I'm bringing him in from season 7, episode 8. Bring on all the complication. Rick is a natural leader type and tries to do everything he can to protect those he cares about. He might not look like much but he's more resourceful than he appears.

I have a plurk for plotting here: [plurk.com profile] snowflakecrowns but (pm) also works.

I cannot wait to thread and do all the things with everyone.

Hey, everyone! I'm Alex, and I'm bringing in this guy here, Ginko from Mushi-shi!

Ginko is also from another game that closed some time ago, Edensphere, so he'll be pretty used to the whole idea of people pulled into a weird place by the Powers That Be; I see that there are a lot of characters like that in this game, so he'll be in good company at least!

My plurk is [plurk.com profile] chocoballs, feel free to hit me up there! I also have a discord, chocoballs#5292, but I don't use it as much as I should.

Hey guys, it's Linden here with another character. This time I have brought Worf from Series 5 of Deep Space Nine. He's naturally grumpy and angry but that's normal for a Klingon anyway.

I look forward to threading with all of you and having some awesome fun times ^-^

What's blue, purple, and doesn't like to stay in one place for too long?

This Asari!

Hello, it's Surtsey - Furiosa mun - bringing in the complete opposite; Peebee (Pelessaria B'Sayle, or Peanut Butter, depending on who you ask) from Mass Effect: Andromeda, aka KIDS IN SPACE. She's picked up/attaches herself to Ryder's crew because it's interesting. She does a lot of things because they seem interesting. Like, drop everything and travel 600 years to another galaxy with no hopes of returning home.

Being stuck in the fleet isn't going to be fun for her. But, at least they made her a lab technician so she can research and tinker with stuff. And there's interesting people to pester. Also she's an insatiable flirt but doesn't really do commitment without a good deal of second-guessing.

If you've got any questions, let me know at [plurk.com profile] surtsey! I look forward to so many shenanigans!

Hey all.

I've really enjoyed this game and the reception Jeyne received, especially from the crew. I've been dragging lately and struggling to think of ideas. I really don't want to hold a slot in the cast list when it might go to someone more active. It's better that Jeyne leave the Fleet after such a great story arc.

Thanks to all the wonderful cr partners I received in this game. She's leaving letters addressed to every member of the Blue Fish. I don't think she really has anything of value beyond her bow and herbal salves. Those can be distributed however you want.

Thank you again for all the memories.
