First topic message reminder :

Asher considered his words for a few seconds, glancing around the room as he thought, then looked to Kay again. "I've been thinking over everything that's happened today, and I feel like it would be wrong for me to leave Terra before the androids have been granted their freedom," he said. "I think it might be in the best interests of the children and the androids if I stay on Terra while Vestia goes on to the Imperium." He wished he could have phrased it better, but he just didn't know how. Ugh.

Shane chuckled softly and shrugged a little. "What if that's one reason I like them though?" He asked teasingly.

"I have many exceptional talents," Tala said, clearly not caring about modesty, "But pouring drinks is not one of them. Where did you learn it?" She added, "With pleas yes, I would be glad for a drink."

Ellie smiled. "Well then, that's okay." She looked to the others in the room, "I guess we should go mingle, huh?"

Matt shrugged. "I spend a lot of time in bars... and casinos.. and taverns and inns and clubs.." he laughed and started preparing Tala some sort of cocktail, mixing spirits together he knew went together, but doing so by juggling the damn bottles and making it ridiculously over the top a performance. He nearly dropped one of the bottles at one point, but he caught it and grinned. "oops?" then continued.

"here ya go"

Tala watched Matt's performance, ears perked forward in interest. She took the drink when he handed it to her, if it was in a glass, it probably looked a little silly in her large, furry hands."You have my thanks," she said, sampling the drink. It was a lot fancier than the beers she normally bought, that was for sure. "It seems there are certain types of establishments you frequent." Her ears wiggled in amusement.

Matt smiled broadly "Well, i'm banned from casinos now." He admitted, looking slightly awkward.

Kay turned up.

----

Armin walked with Starr back to his room. Things were, he thought, finally slipping into place. Soon the androids and the star dragons would be free, they'd have the children back, Starr's child would be hatched and everything would be okay.

Tala looked curious, then nodded. "Ah! Your thievery has gotten the best of you in such places." She smiled toothily at him. Her nostrils twitched at the smell of Kay, his scent really was distinctive to minotaur noses, "Hark, Matt, your brother is here after all!"

Matt looked over. "Hey man! You decided to show up?"

Kay flinched a little at the attention and came over. [It was this or sit alone in my room, and i've run out of good books.] and going to the library seemed a terrible idea right now.

Matt grinned. "Want a drink? I can totally make you something non alchoholic"

[Isn't this how you cut Esk's hand?] Kay questioned.

Matt looked sheepish "Uh.. kinda?" He looked around "He's decided to be antisocial again huh? You didn't throw stuff at him right? I mean, he'd deserve it but... "

Kay shook his head.

Tala couldn't read what Kay wrote very well, so she made do by just following Matt's half of the conversation. "Esk is a charming young man, I am sure he will join us in time," she said. Judging by the stillness of her ears, she was serious. "It is good to see you here Kay. Come and drink something lacking in alcohol with us. Your brother is a fine bartender."

Shane shrugged and looked around "We can, I guess" He said, moving to see the few others there.

~~~
Starr smiled at Armin, shifting before going in his room so he could take the tank off and relax.

Ellie followed along, snagging some snacks from a table as she went. If Skye was here, she'd go over and say hi, probably towing Shane along, as usual.

Kay blinked at Tala, not really sure how to take that. Esk? A fine young man? Uh huh... maybe he was less of a dick to people who weren't related to him. Matt a good bartender too? hmm, how drunk WAS Tala?

Matt grinned. "Hey thanks Tala." He mixed up something for Kay without alchohol, because Kay wasn't allowed to drink, it was bad.

---

Armin took his tank and mask off and smiled to Starr. "thank you for joining me." He looked to the door. "But are you certain you would not rather be celebrating with the others?"

Shane was willing to follow her around wherever she went. He waved to Skye when they reached her.
Skye had come back up to watch the view more than to celebrate, but she didn't mind not being alone either. She smiled and waved to Ellie and Shane "hello"

~~~
Starr nodded and smiled as well as she could in this form. "I am sure, I would rather wait to celebrate until we are all together again." She said softly. Right now too much could go wrong for her to feel good about celebrating.

Maybe minotaurs had a different idea of what "nice" meant, because Tala didn't look drunk, and she also seemed fairly serious about her opinion of Esk. "Of course," she said to Matt.

~~
"Hey Skye, you planet-watching?" Ellie asked cheerfully, inviting herself over.

"Yeah, I like watching the outside." Skye said with a small smile. "The sky is nice, but so is watching the planets go by."

Matt handed Kay a drink which Kay sniffed suspiciously before sipping.

"Hey, you think i'm gonna what, poison you?" Matt protested.

[Forgive me if i'm a little skeptical of your ability to blend ingredients you can't taste.] Kay wrote.

"i can taste em! I just.. can't keep em down..." Matt grinned.

Kay looked grossed out. [thank you for that image.]

"You're welcome little bro." Matt laughed and ruffled Kay's hair

Kay looked annoyed but his hands were too full to bat at his idiotic brother.

----

Mourn slunk over to Skye, Ellie and Shane, with a large plate of food.

"Yeah, it's a nice view. In a way it's fun to be traveling again, even if it means leaving Terra," Ellie said. "Oh hey Mourn, how ya doing?" she added as the felid joined them.

~~
Tala nodded sympathetically. "Digestive issues are a great nuisance," she said to Matt. "Can you eat small amounts of vegetation, or is it all harmful to your digestion?" Hey, she had dietary restrictions too, she was curious about his.

Mourn looked up at Ellie, he'd decided sitting on the floor meant he could use both hands to eat.

"Have food, good." He told her simply, his mouth half full. "you want?" He held out a half chewed on cracker.

---

Matt shrugged. "I dunno, we never really tested it too much. First couple of times you bring it back up you kinda... decide it's not worth it right?"

[Normal people would yes.] Kay rolled his eyes.

Matt laughed "okay so alchohol is an exception, but man, it's worth it!"

Kay looked skeptical.

"totally worth it man." Matt repeated, nodding.

"Your situation is less fortunate than mine," Tala mused. "There are many vegan options on most menus, not so many for true carnivores." She looked thoughtful, "Are you caused indigestion by eggs? I tried egg once, my stomachs were not pleased."

"it's okay, you can find meat most places." Matt shrugged. "Yeah I can eat eggs, we had chickens when I was a kid."

You gave them all stupid names. Kay smirked.

"Well yeah, they deserved names man!" Matt grinned.

then you got upset when we had to kill and eat one. Kay continued.

Matt frowned "Yeah.. in hindsight.. naming them probably wasn't a great idea..." He looked back to Tala. "most menus have at least something like steak, though i can see it being a real problem somewhere where everyone was a herbivore like you guys." Hmm yeah, that'd be awkward. "wait.. stomachs? plural? " He finally noticed.

Tala blinked at the discussion of chicken names. Humanoids were odd, she decided, naming things they would eat. "You are fortunate to have that amount of variety at least, it is better than only eating meat," Tala decided, "Although the scent of eggs is not overly good, so that is less fortunate." No, they smelled kinda gross to Tala. "Yes, we have three stomachs, they help us digest grasses, which most species cannot do. We are a species that originated on the plains."

"Wow, three stomachs? No wonder you can drink so much." Matt grinned.

Kay nodded politely to Tala and wandered over to the windows to watch the view, trying not to muse that every minute they got further from Asher. Damn.

"Hey Mourn" Skye said with a smile as she looked to the felid. She moved closer to him to scratch his ear gently where he liked it. "I like traveling actually. The only bad part is not being able to fly so much."

Tala's ears wiggled with amusement at Matt's remark. She watched Kay wander off, then looked to Matt again, ears still now. "It seems many of us have loved ones far away now," she mused.

~~
"Uh, that's okay Mourn, I'm good," Ellie said, looking grossed out. Yeah, Mourn's half-eaten food wasn't something she wanted. Just nope. "Getting to see the new sights is fun," she agreed with Skye.

"Not for long." Matt nodded. "soon we'll all be together again." He was clinging to that hope.

Mourn leaned into Skye's hand, purring softly.

"One hopes so," Tala agreed. It had already been twelve years since she'd last seen Nadira though, there was a part of her that wasn't entirely sure she'd see her again.

Matt nodded, looking serious for a moment. "You gotta hang onto that you know? or else you just... sink." He shook his head and poured himself a drink of straight vodka, or it might have been rum, it was clear and alchoholic and he didn't much care either way. "We'll go find your lady too. She's out there somewhere."

Tala nodded in agreement. "And I suppose if we do not find Nadira or your Thalia, they will find us, and most likely have many words to say."
