Upon Celestial Tiger: Chapter One

Post by Kooshie on Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:51 pm

First topic message reminder :

A small, fast space yacht. The last owner named it Celestial Tiger.

Three small bedrooms (with bunks), one bathroom. Very small storage hold. combined dining/living area. Everyone's going to hate each other by the end of this road trip.

Ethan shook his head. "That doesn't make sense. Tala's a minotaur, they have tempers. And mistakes aren't tolerated on ships." He knew he shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, but this was just bizarre.

"This is Tala's ship, not mine, so any discipline is her choice. She chose to just ban you from flying until you get the sim time in." Rigel said then shrugged.

Ethan was still confused, but he took Luka's advice and shut up, nodding in feigned understanding. No need to push his luck. This place was so different from mirror Vestia, he still got hit by culture shock sometimes.

Rigel smiled a little then shrugged "My ship you might be banned from the cockpit till you got certified. See you around." He said, turning to leave again.

"See you." Ethan watched Rigel go, completely confused and trying to look like he wasn't. Yeah, he needed to do some more reading. Just when he thought he understood this universe, it went and did something weird again. "I should, uh, go make sure the books are still fastened down," he told Luka.

TIMESKIP - APRIL 25 - THE NATIONAL PARK

This planet was distinctly Terra-type, with deserts, oceans, tundras, and forests. It had a population of several million, mostly Terran. The national park they had chosen was a few miles out from the nearest city, but thankfully the park had a clear area for small ships to land, eliminating the need for the crew to catch a bus.

The park was full of forests, interspersed with small lakes and meadows. The wildlife was supposed to be mostly harmless. There was a gift shop near the landing area.

Rigel went to the ramp after they landed to have a bit of a look around the area before anyone got off.

Starr looked out the window after they landed then looked to her egg again. She had sent the other two into a pocket space, just to be able to use the shells later if she needed to, so now she only had the one to keep watch over. She got up, knowing they would want her to leave her room. She fashioned a carrier and put it on then made a dress to go over it, taking a Terran form so that she looked pregnant, but it was the only way she was going to leave this ship, by keeping her egg with herself. She was overly protective of the heir.

Helen and Sawna stayed close to Starr, taking care of her and helping her as they could. Sawna would stay on the ship, to keep watch over it and do some cleaning while the others were out and about.

Since leaving the Guild, the crew had been pretty much completely isolated from nature, living as they were on their ship, and stopping at space stations to refuel. So for Tala and her sensitive nose, this was pretty much the most exciting thing ever. Tala temporarily forgot all the conduct her rank as captain called for, and pranced out to the nearest patch of grass to lie down and roll about for a while, snorting and pawing at the air with her hooves.

Ethan didn't roll in the grass, but he did definitely look pleased to be out here in the sunshine and fresh air. He stayed near Starr as he turned around to take in the scenery.

Luka breathed in the fresh air and blinked against the sun. It was kinda weird to be back on land, and around well... grass and trees and stuff.
She'd spent so much of her life in space, solid ground felt decidedly too hard and too solid.

Still, it was a change.

She tried not to stare at Tala's shenanigans, Minotaurs were weird.

Swarm spread out a little, but remained close by, buzzing to one another and flitting about on the breeze. They were happy to have fresh air.

Starr gave Ethan a small smile, with him on one side and Helen on the other and Shane behind her, she felt safe enough to start wandering the place.

Tala tore off a mouthful of grass and ground it happily between her teeth. "You are missing a most tolerable experience!" She called to the others, ears wiggling.

Ethan looked amused, but turned his attention to Starr. "You seen to have acquired an entire escort," he said.

"I think we'll pass on the grass Captain... thanks." Luka was trying not to laugh, watching Tala acting like this was wierd and amusingly undignified to her but she didn't want to disrespect their acting captain by laughing at her.

She looked back to Starr. She really DID look pregnant which.. to be fair... wasn't that far from the truth.
She tried not to flinch at that though. Those keepers better pay, dearly.

"What's to see?" She asked, to distract herself more than anything else.

Ethan found the fact that Starr looked pregnant a little unsettling too, it was an unpleasant reminder of what had happened. He did good best to ignore it though. He smiled oddly. "Good. Let's have a look around, the forests look like they don't have too many briars, so they should be nice."

Tala eventually got up and returned to the group, new grass stains on her trousers.

Starr nodded and glanced around at everyone, picking a trail to wander down.

Shane went to get a map then came back over to the group, prepared to go for a walk.

"I smell no cats of the wild, it is likely we shall not be consumed on this day," Tala declared as she followed Starr.

"Were we worrying about that?" Ethan asked wryly.

"If not, then you should have been!" Tala said, ears wiggling. She really was in good spirits today. "Be afraid, my crew!"

The path led into the forest, which was pretty clear at first. The underbrush got thicker as they went along though.

"So when was the last time you guys were in a real forest?" Ethan asked. "I don't think the Guild parks counted."

Shane looked around then shook his head. "Not in a long time."

Starr smiled and looked to Ethan again "Before we got on Vestia, I was on a planet with many forests."

"I don't think I have ever had the chance to be in a real forest" Helen said, more interested in the forest than the conversation.

Luka followed, shaking her head. "I grew up in a small town, definitely no forests. "

"The central cities of Haakon are most delightfully surrounded in forest," Tala said, pausing to smell one of the trees they passed. "Since then, I have had little time for the exploration of nature."

Ethan nodded. "And I haven't seen a forest in years either. Guess this is new for all of us." He looked at Helen, "As long as you stay on the trails, it's supposed to be pretty safe here. Other than some of the wildlife."

A big, six-legged caterpillar-like creature was grazing placidly alongside the path. It looked up momentarily, then kept grazing.

Ethan eyed it suspiciously.

Helen nodded and looked to the creature curiously. She felt safe enough with the group.

They'd walk for a while. Ethan was tempted to sneak off, but not brave enough to actually do so. Tala sometimes had the group stop so she could sample the local foliage. Against park rules? Sure. Did she care? Naaaah.

After a while, the group might notice that the first was getting oddly quiet though. The birds seemed to all have left.

"What happened to the bird sounds?" Helen asked, looking up to the trees then around them again.

Starr paused and looked around too, getting a bit worried when it got quiet. Most animals only did that when danger was near.
