Upon Vestia: Chapter Twenty-Eight

Post by Kooshie on Mon Feb 05, 2018 6:04 pm

First topic message reminder :

"Cause Esk is lazy and he wants someone to wait on Dawn, even though he has a massive crush on her and could wait on her himself," James grumbled. "At least that's what I assume was his motivation," he amended. "Your brother is weird. So Dawn's probably okay and not infected, that's good at least."

Luka flinched, it was kinda hard to think of happy things on demand. She tried, but it was tinged with guilt and anxiety about whether it was happy enough which probably didn't help.

The babies accepted it, with their parents giving their assurances that it was alright.

Rigel reached a hand over and chuckled softly "Just think of flying the Devil. That's a happy thought."

James nodded. "Think of happy things. You went to a carnival and won toys for baby dragons, that's one heck of a happy thought too."

Luka smiled to Rigel, nodding jerkily and closing her eyes. The dragons could probably pick up on her surge of emotion from interacting with Rigel, oops.

The babies calmed down when the 'threat' passed, getting up and starting to eat again, so long as that surge was good feelings, they didn't care.

James frowned at the way Luka looked at Rigel. He suspected what had happened out there in Ottawantreal between the two, and he just needed the right moment to ask. The right moment not being here and now, surrounded by newly freed dragons and their kids.
He sighed, and started feeding the babies bits of food again.

James decided as he fed the babies that it was probably best to not ask. Luka was his best friend, even if he'd barely seen her lately, and he didn't want to make her dislike him. He'd ask her when they were alone sometime, hopefully while she was slightly drunk and they were watching a movie.

TIMESKIP - JUNE 22, 2790

Ellie had been exhausted after her evening of partying with her friends. She stumbled home to bed, making a quip about how the oldness of those seniors must be wearing off on her, and was too tired to even ask Shane to go to bed with her. She'd sleep in until around nine in the morning.

~~
Ethan spent a few hours too many thinking about Professor Hewit. He finally managed to distract himself with a few riveting games of Solitaire, and then wandered up to an observation deck to watch the city start a new day.
He really wasn't a fan of power saving mode, even though it was the best way to pass time quickly. He preferred to always be fully alert.

~~
Asher read up on vavare for a while before bed, wanting to learn as much as he could about molting, even though the doctor would be visiting tomorrow and could probably provide better information. He did go to bed when Kay did as usual, but didn't switch to power saving mode immediately, instead worrying about poor Armin, and wishing his body was less useless so he could help the guy better if something went wrong.

~~
James, having decided to not interrogate Luka yet, would head back to the med bay and talk to Tori about helping Armin if he had an emergency in the night. James told Tori she should go spend time with her friends, so they could talk about their busy day.

Tori agreed and headed off, while James hung around the med bay all night, just in case something went wrong with Armin.

~~
Not having any responsibilities now that she was no longer captain, Tala spent the night very happily with a hot minotaur babe she'd met in a bar. She returned to Vestia in the morning, a bit hung over but in good spirits.

~~
Moriah and Tobias went back after partying to see the other androids, who they spent the night comparing notes with. All the MegaBrainTech and Terran United androids had a lot to talk about.

Matt returned home tired, but a little too sober to sleep soundly. He passed the evening in the bar, drinking till Esk showed up and took the beer away and replaced it with water.
The two sat and chatted in their usual slightly awful manner to one another for a while. Then they both went to bed.

---

Armin thankfully had no emergancy in the night, he slept fairly soundly despite his massive discomfort, the absolute exhaustion of his state overriding much of anything else.

---

Swarm settled in to watch the crew sleep and rest themselves, sharing the information many of them had discovered that day.

They watched Ethan and James curiously, both androids were acting a bit odder than usual. But they said nothing, nor did they make their presence known.

---

Kay had gotten a lot of work up to date and deftly avoided having to talk about Hytar at all. He was glad that man was off their ship and likely wouldn't be setting foot on it again thank you.

He took a while to get to sleep, between Asher's worry and his own concerns about the star dragons, this deal with Hytar, Armin's health and the ongoing delays to their trip, he was feeling pretty anxious.
Finally though, sleep won out.

---

Mourn worked through the night on this android code, till exhaustion got too much and he fell asleep at the keyboard.

---

Hewitt slept quite happily, oblivious to Ethan's concerns. Or possibly he just didn't care.

---

Amity went into power saving mode as he usually did, and would rise as soon as someone walked into the room in which his charging bay was.

----

Silence returned home and adopted her natural form as soon as she was able to do so, quite relieved to be able to slip out of the uncomfortable confines of an unnatural form. She went to her room in fairly good spirits, where Ivor met her. They 'talked' about her night and eventually curled up together to sleep. She'd never quite adapted to sleeping alone and he had terrible dreams.

Starr came back with the others and like them, went to bed, sleeping well through the night.

Asher would wake up whenever Kay did, or at the time he'd set his chronometer to switch him out of power saving mode, whichever came first.

He'd go through the rather tedious process of getting up, although his mind was more on Armin's health than anything else.

~~
James was in the med bay still when Tala wandered in.

"Greetings, emancipated one!" Tala proclaimed, wincing at the volume of her voice. She'd gotten a pretty major hangover last night, to be actually asking for drugs. "I am desireous of painkillers on this glorious morn!"

James stared at her for a bit, then got up and got her a minotaur-sized dose of painkillers.

~~
A few of the new androids were poking around the ship, not with anything specific in mind. Some of them were going to work, some were just exploring.

Luka rose early to go for her morning jog.

---

Ivor and Silence rose early to get breakfast.

---

Kay rolled over in bed and looked at Asher, tilting his head. He looked distracted.

Starr got up in the morning, taking her egg in it's pouch and wandering the ship in her natural form. She felt safe with the people on the ship and she had positions to fill with the rest of the dragons. Too many high positions had been lost over the years.

~~~
Shane followed his usual routine, getting up and ready for the day then going to eat and see who else came in

Tala took the pills James gave her, following them with a glass of water. "You are a fine young man, you do not even smell like a man. I shall go and consume breakfast now, it absorbs the alcohol." She set the glass on a counter, and ambled off.

"You're welcome?" James said to the door as it closed behind her. Minotaurs, man. So bizarre.

Tala headed to the cafeteria. "Greetings, Ivor, Silence, Shane," she proclaimed. Her voice was still too loud and the painkillers hadn't started working yet. She winced. Ouch.

~~
Asher smiled oddly at Kay. "Just worrying about people, as usual. I do hope that doctor can help. And that Amari will be back to full health today." He started buttoning his shirt.

~~
Ethan left the observation deck, to wander a bit before harassing Hewitt. He didn't want to wake the guy up too early, not after how the guy had yelled at him last night. He might spot Starr as he wandered. "Good morning," he said, "Starr?" he added. He wasn't sure it was her, now there were a lot of other dragons with eggs on this ship.

Shane waved to Tale. "Good morning. Are you alright?" He asked, seeing her wince.

~~~
Starr looked to Ethan and dipped her head in a nod. "Good morning Ethan." She said after shifting.

"I am well, though I have a most displeasing hangover. This city is most satisfactory," Tala declared. "How fare you, Shane?"

~~
Ethan looked at Starr for a couple seconds after she shifted, trying to decide if this was really Starr. He knew from his unpleasant experience with mirror Shane that star dragons could impersonate other people extremely effectively, so this could be any female star dragon. Then again, he really doubted any of the dragons would dare impersonate their queen. Star dragons seemed to be pretty respectful of rank, and probably the others would beat the crap out of any dragon who disrespected their queen like that, or something.
So this was probably really Starr.
"You're enjoying having your people on this ship, I take it?" Ethan asked.

"I am well." Shane said with a smile. "We went to a trivia night instead of drinking."

~~~
Starr smiled and nodded. "Yes, I am glad they are free, though there are many questions I have yet to find an answer for." She said honestly.

Ethan nodded. "I can imagine. It has to be weird to be the queen of people who've been enslaved for, what, hundreds of years now?" He wasn't entirely sure how long the star dragons had been imprisoned for, but Starr was something like two hundred years old, he was pretty sure. "How messed up are they, anyway?"

Ivor finched a little at Tala's loudness, staring at her uncertainly.

Silence nodded a vuage greeting. "hang.. over?" She asked.

---

Kay nodded grimly and got up, reaching for his tablet. [We'll know more once this doctor has been. If anyone is going to know how to handle molt, it'll be a member of Armin's own species.]

Starr nodded with a frown. "They are well enough now, especially since I was able to use some of the built up anger in the war. As a people we are pretty resiliant, though some do have bad dreams."

"Hangover means you drank too much the night before. You have a headache and feel nauseous sometimes." Shane said

"Not drinking is most unusual amongst your friends," Tala mused, nodding to Shane. She went to get some tater tots to heat up because they were faster than raw potatoes. "Hangovers are most displeasing, but the part where you drink the alcohol is fun."

~~
Asher finished buttoning and tucking in his shirt. "I suppose he has the best chance of helping us. I should probably try not to worry too much in the mean time, Vestia would have told us if anything had happened already." He shook his head. "Do you suppose we should check in on Armin before the doctor gets here, or let him rest until the appointment?"

~~
Ethan smiled oddly. "You could vent their anger for them? That's convenient." He would like to have someone be able to vent his anger on his behalf, that would make things a lot easier. Then again, that would mean being telepathically linked to someone, which would have its own downsides too. Hmm. "You don't think any of them are going to get into any self-indulgent shit, like harassing other people to deal with their anger and acting like their trauma excuses it, right?" That sort of thing had happened waaay too much on the other Vestia. It hadn't just been Ethan who had done it.

"No, I don't think so. It is different when you can feel the emotions of the ones you are trying to hurt, it makes you think twice before harming anyone." Starr said then shrugged. "That doesn't mean we haven't had some who try to be bad, but it does make it more rare." She had gotten past that herself to be able to be an assassin after all.

"you... seem in.. g... good spirits despite it..." Ivor observed warily.

---

[Perhaps it would be best to let him rest, he must be exhausted. ] Kay reasoned. Vestia would tell them if they were needed right? He chewed his lip, trying not to worry. He went to go get a shower and get ready for the day. He should be presentable when this doctor turned up.

Ethan frowned a little. "Of course, not all of us have emotions that can be sensed." He was pretty sure Starr wouldn't let any dragon hurt a crew member, but still. Fun things to worry about.

~~
"The alcohol was pleasing, and there were minotaurs," Tala said. "There is much to be glad for, and a headache shall not change that." There had only been one minotaur, but she could exaggerate a bit.

~~
"Yeah, that's probably the best option," Asher agreed. He smiled softly at Kay, then set to work getting himself into the wheelchair.
