First topic message reminder :

Starr shrugged and looked out the window again. "I don't know. I just want things to be normal."

Asher looked amused. He really didn't have that much interest in CGI Dwayne Johnson's impressive physique, but it was funny to joke about. And they needed some humor right now. "You say that as if you won't be thrilled too," he told Kay, watching as the movie started. "I know I'm not the only one."

[Well we'll both just have to control ourselves.] Kay reasoned, switching to paper and a pen so they could watch the movie in full screen. He balanced the tablet on the desk for them both to watch.

Asher put on a mournful expression. "It's too bad he doesn't exist outside the computer screen. Then again, maybe that's for the best."
The movie was very much a typical 28th century Dwayne Johnson movie, with lots of shiny spaceships and people wearing of many species wearing tight clothes. Yay.

Kay smiled. these movies were very much visual equivalents of the terrible books he read weren't they? Gratuitous, ridiculous, extremely watchable.

These movies really were perfect escapist nonsense for a bad day. Yeah, they weren't going to teach you anything or make you think, but they were fun and easy to watch.
Asher was happy to watch this silly piece of entertainment with Kay and forget about the world for a while.

"We should start with the tree and securing it, and the water before we add the other things." Starr said, looking around

Matt nodded "Alright, I can do water." At least it was one thign he could do.

"Vestia! Bring us dirt and apple seeds!" Ellie called.

"On it!" Vestia said. She'd send up a bot with apple seeds and a bit later, a much larger bot she'd purchased at the Guild with dirt.

"Apple seeds?" Starr asked curiously. Hm, she didn't know apple trees were good for tree houses.

"They grow all in different shapes, I can teach an apple tree to grow in a good shape for a little treehouse," Ellie said. "That way we don't need to nail boards and stuff to it, so it won't be in pain."

"And a good snack when they are in season" Starr said, nodding then chuckling. "I didn't know they would be strong enough."

"They're good little climbing trees," Ellie said, "It won't be a palace, but I think we can make a nice treehouse. Do you think they'd mind it being star dragon kid size instead of ten year old size?"

"They could, but when Matt's kid comes to play, they won't be able to change sizes. We may need to do support posts if they can't hold a good size treehouse." Starr said, tilting her head at the design image. "Or a big tree surrounded by apple trees?"

"It's gonna be a while before Matt's kid will be big enough for treehouses, we can probably wait on that," Ellie mused. "I'll totally grow a bigger house when the kid is ready though."

Matt looked a bit uncomfortable, it was still super weird to think of himself as a parent, especially when his partner and unborn child were so far away. "Apple trees will be fine, we used to climb them all the time growing up. They're pretty strong."

Starr shrugged then nodded "Alright" She said and adjusted the image to show apple trees

Ellie nodded. "Good. Apple trees are the best. Their leaves even smell good when you squish them up, although that's not nice to the tree."

Vestia's dirt hauling bot showed up before too long.

"Hey, can somebody make a nice hill of dirt somewhere so the trees have somewhere to root?" Ellie asked.

Helen stepped over to them to move the dirt into a nice pile.

Matt nodded. "We spent so much time in the orchard growing up." He managed a fond smile at the memory. Kay never climbed the trees, but he and Web? all the dang time. "Olin used to yell at us over the fields to get down before we broke something. I dunno if she meant ourselves or the tree." He snickered.

"I'm sure she meant the trees. Nobody respects the trees, and it's terrible," Ellie told Matt in a wise tone. Once Helen was done moving the dirt, she took the apple seeds Vestia had brought. "Vestia? Air humidity up?"

Vestia adjusted the humidity so the air started feeling damper.

"Can you like, make it rain over where I am?" Ellie asked Matt. "Umm, is that even how your power works, actually?"

Matt shrugged. "Maybe not rain, but I can kinda, create water and tell it to pretend." Yeah it was hard to explain. "Kinda like.. sprinklers?"

"That sounds good," Ellie said, holding one of the apple seeds in her hand and focusing on making it sprout. "As long at the tree gets enough water to grow, that's all that matters."

Matt nodded. "I'll try." Truthfully, he'd never really used his ability with this much finesse. "That is so cool." He indicated the sprouting seed, nope, it'd never not be cool.

Ellie smiled proudly. Heck yeah, this was cool. "We're so lucky to be on this ship doing cool stuff," she said. "I mean, look at us. We can control water, and plants, and STARS, and Armin can make bulletproof vests with his feet. We could start a superhero club, no kidding."

Armin laughed at that comment. Weaving was a little more complex than that but it was quite amusing.

Starr and Helen both chuckled at Ellie's comments, watching her and Matt worked together.

Ellie let the sprout grow a bit more in her hands, then planted it in the dirt and started growing it in earnest. The sprout stretched and grew into a sapling, then thickened and grew until it was almost as tall as Ellie herself. At that point she stopped, gasping for breath. She sat back, looking kind of pale.
