7:01:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hi y'all
7:01:26 PM TKirr: Heya
7:02:44 PM MisterBoxingBear: Hey hey.
7:05:01 PM MisterBoxingBear: So where's the blue guy?
7:05:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Elsewhere, it would seem
7:06:10 PM MisterBoxingBear: Stupid alien.
7:06:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I heard there was a shortage of blue makeup.
7:09:00 PM TKirr: I had a power outage a couple hours ago, lasted an hour
7:09:10 PM MisterBoxingBear: That sucks.
7:09:12 PM TKirr: I was like plz plz plz plz
7:09:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: MUST HAVE INTERNETS
7:09:38 PM TKirr: What's more annoying is my UPS is apparently not working anymore
7:09:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Switch to FedEx :V
7:10:22 PM TKirr: . . .
7:10:29 PM TKirr: My battery backup for my computer isn't working.
7:10:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There's the damned dirty alien.
7:12:30 PM MisterBoxingBear: Evening.
7:13:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We'll give our missing engineer a few more minutes.
7:14:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And here she comes.
7:14:47 PM TKirr: Yays
7:15:00 PM LtCmdrBusard: Hey guys. Sorry I'm late, but work sucks.
7:15:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No problem.
7:15:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And we're five again.
7:15:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: This week, we just witnessed the tundra outside our cave turn into a humid jungle. IT'S A JUNGLE OUT THERE :haw:
7:16:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Not even a groan.
7:16:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Gawd.
7:16:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Tough room. I get no respect.
7:17:05 PM TKirr: >_>
7:17:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Anyway, questions?
7:17:16 PM LtCmdrBusard: *crickets*
7:17:46 PM MisterBoxingBear: None from me just yet.
7:18:15 PM TKirr: Mm... newp.
7:18:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
7:18:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
7:18:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
7:18:46 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Scanning obsessively for signs of other life::
7:18:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::stares out the door past Shelev, who up until a moment ago was standing in the cool breeze looking cool::
7:18:59 PM cmdr shelev: I think there's plenty of lifesigns.
7:19:08 PM cmdr shelev: They're all plants.
7:19:10 PM cmdr shelev: What.
7:19:18 PM LtCmdrBusard: (*Besides trees, damnit)
7:19:36 PM TKirr: ::also scanning, but for temporal readings::
7:20:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: So it's safe to say we're on a planet that has no idea when it wants to exist in its own timeline.
7:20:37 PM TKirr: ::stares at Ian:: Are you suggesting the planet is sentient?
7:20:53 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Curiously steps forward so as to stand next to Shelev, for the moment not missing his jacket so much. In fact, in a few minutes, the armor vest might become uncomfortable as well.:: If we're to assume this will happen again, I'd
7:21:27 PM MisterBoxingBear: say we want to do some hunting. The next shift might leave us in yet another lifeless wasteland.
7:21:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No, it was just a metaphor. Anything interesting on scans?
7:21:50 PM LtCmdrBusard: I agree, sir. There seems to be plenty of edible fauna at the moment.
7:22:21 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Grabs le phaser in preparation of goin' huntin'::
7:23:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: I'd also like a way to predict these time shifts.
7:23:31 PM TKirr: There was a spike in temporal readings just before the change, but I read nothing now.
7:23:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: In the meantime, let's see about dinner.
7:24:01 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Grins at the idea of food:: Aye, sir.
7:24:49 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Ditches the armor vest, as well as the outer top of his fatigues, leaving him with just the t-shirt. That should leave the heat somewhat manageable, he figures as he hoists his rifle and grins at T'Kirr:: I'm sure the humidity's
7:25:07 PM MisterBoxingBear: a bitch form someone who grew up in a desert, but at least it's nice and warm now, eh?
7:26:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I imagine there's some water around somewhere, too. We'll need some way to transport it. ::looks at the Engineer::
7:26:17 PM TKirr: ::glances at McKnight:: It is warm... but not pleasant to breathe.
7:27:13 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Totally does not covertly stare as McKnight does so, and then:: A good point, sir. Um...we can make baskets and cover them in leaves?
7:27:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::ditches his uniform overjacket::
7:28:01 PM LtCmdrBusard: Or make stone bowls with our phasers as a carving tool.
7:28:26 PM MisterBoxingBear: Right, well I'll leave you folks to that. Those who want in on the hunting part, we should move now. No way of knowing how much time we've got.
7:28:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Best to conserve the phaser power. Baskets and skins.
7:28:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Assuming the hunt goes well.
7:29:06 PM LtCmdrBusard: Also a good idea. Um...I'm afraid I'm not so good at basketry, sir, so respectfully I volunteer for hunting.
7:29:24 PM TKirr: ::blinks and looks at Shelev::
7:31:12 PM TKirr: I'll make the water containers.
7:31:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Shelev, T'Kirr, and I will find water. You two find food. Don't go more than a kilo afield if you can help it.
7:31:35 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Nods:: Aye, sir.
7:31:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Comm at the first sign of anything else bizarre.
7:32:03 PM cmdr shelev: ::Comms::
7:33:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I said anything ELSE bizarre.
7:33:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Good hunting.
7:33:40 PM MisterBoxingBear: Right then. Good luck with the arts and crafts. I'll be back as soon as I can.
7:33:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:
7:33:55 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::And with that, he was out among the trees::
7:34:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::leaves the overjacket behind and tugs at his collar:: This is going to be fun. Let's get moving.
7:34:42 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Tries to follow as closely as possible, removing her overjacket and tying it around her waist while doing so::
7:35:01 PM TKirr: Might I suggest we remember where we left our outer gear... for if the weather changes.
7:35:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: This cave'll be home base for now.
7:35:29 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Looks up at the canopy as they move with a somewhat wistful, not entirely pleasant look:: Well, if this doesn't bring back memories.
7:35:35 PM TKirr: ((That's me forgetting we were in a cave =X))
7:35:59 PM LtCmdrBusard: Er...sir?
7:36:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::grabs the commbadge, pins it on the shirt as he undoes the collar:: Alright. ::steps out:: Most likely direction of a water source according to scans?
7:37:51 PM TKirr: Actually... ::points into the cave:: Down there.
7:38:15 PM TKirr: Unless you wish to collect dew from the flora.
7:38:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns:: I was hoping for a river.
7:38:40 PM TKirr: There are rivers, but they are a distance from here.
7:38:40 PM cmdr shelev: :haw:
7:39:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: How far?
7:39:19 PM TKirr: It is difficult to say if they would be accessible from this elevation, as it appears to be quite rocky. We may find a waterfall, however.
7:39:23 PM MisterBoxingBear: Mendala 2. Heard of the place?
7:39:44 PM TKirr: ::checks scanner:: Approximately two point four kilometers.
7:39:57 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...Vaguely?
7:41:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: How far down into the cave?
7:42:23 PM TKirr: Less than half a kilometer... but that's directly through the rock. Judging by the tunnel system I can see... ::ponders:: Nine hundred meters?
7:44:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Not much to carry it back with down there, I would imagine.
7:44:56 PM TKirr: ::looks to one side:: You are correct.
7:45:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Then out we go.
7:45:42 PM MisterBoxingBear: It's a mostly jungle planet. Maybe...a little over a dozen light years from the Cardassian border. About the only reason I'd have to want to hold on to it is because the Dominion wanted it, but its location WAS strategic for use
7:45:45 PM TKirr: ::nods and pops out of the cave::
7:46:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: You too, Shelev.
7:46:54 PM TKirr: ::checks readings and points off to the left:: That way.
7:47:16 PM cmdr shelev: Does anyone have a bucket?
7:47:30 PM MisterBoxingBear: as a listening post, and I'm told there were some respectable mineral deposits, so as soon as those bastards landed troops to try and grab it, Federation troops had to spend the next 6 months dislodge them from wherever they'd
7:47:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, I carry a bucket on every away mission.
7:48:53 PM MisterBoxingBear: managed to hole up. Came down to close quarters so often we started soldering bayonet sockets onto our weapons. Gotta tell you, the jungle's nicer without Jem'Hadar waiting to ambush you.
7:49:09 PM MisterBoxingBear: Mind you, nicer should not be taken to mean nice.
7:49:20 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yes, I'd gotten that.
7:49:58 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Looking on her tricorder for foodstuffs:: Looks like there's some kind of warm blooded mammal...a little bit that way. ::She points::
7:50:22 PM TKirr: Baskets would take a while to make, as would any form of pottery, both of which I'm capable of constructing.
7:50:29 PM TKirr: ::looks up at the trees:: There is plenty of plant life here to make something in short order capable of transporting enough for today.
7:50:32 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Nods:: Has this planet ever been inhabited? By humanoid life, I mean?
7:52:11 PM LtCmdrBusard: Not that I'm aware of. Then again, history is not precisely my specialty.
7:52:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::pulls his collar open some more, the pips flapping as they walk:: At least we'll get the lay of the land, as it is for now.
7:54:04 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Ups his rifle's setting to maximum kill.:: Good. That's good. Means the poor critter might not have an instinctive desire to be anywhere we're not.
7:54:30 PM TKirr: ::steps through the trees as lightly as she can, making sure not to trip on the generous underbrush:: I've got a continuous lock on Percy's scanner, as she does mine, and I am running a temporal sensor.
7:54:47 PM TKirr: If something is to happen, I'll have warning.
7:54:54 PM TKirr: ::pauses:: Hopefully.
7:54:56 PM MisterBoxingBear: (God. Even sim hunting just has that Comcast commercial with the saber toothed beaver playing in my head.)
7:54:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: If you start getting any elevated activity, let me know.
7:55:07 PM LtCmdrBusard: (I..wuv...you...)
7:55:24 PM TKirr: Of course. ::sidesteps a large trunk::
7:55:38 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Well, we won't technially be BEATING it.)
7:55:56 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Nope. More like roasting alive.)
7:56:02 PM cmdr shelev: ::Ambles around, looking bewildered since there's really, really not much to say.::
7:56:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hot enough for you, Captain? :haw:
7:56:37 PM TKirr: ::peers back at Shelev, assessing him::
7:56:57 PM LtCmdrBusard: Well, good. ::Still keeps her phaser on stun, just in case::
7:58:20 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Signals it's quiet time by...not talking. Instead, he levels his rifle like he's about to lead a squad in clearing a building full of Machen Bren, and advances silently::
7:59:52 PM cmdr shelev: I want the glacier back.
7:59:53 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Follows, with remarkable agility for an otherwise generally awkward engineer::
8:00:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Wait long enough, maybe you'll get it.
8:00:54 PM TKirr: ::tries not to think about it::
8:01:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Either way, one of you isn't going to like the weather.
8:01:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::snags a walking stick::
8:02:48 PM cmdr shelev: Weather would be fine for both of us at around 17c.
8:03:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I think after we eat, we should harvest some of this wood and make Home-Sweet-Cave a little more personable.
8:03:03 PM TKirr: ::looks up at a leafy, palm like tree, then looks around at its base and picks up a broad bit of curved plant the tree had obviously sloughed off::
8:03:15 PM TKirr: ::discards it and moves on::
8:04:35 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Coming out into a small clearing, McKnight looks quizically at what appears to be some sort of small, colorful bipedal primate, making curious alien animal sounds as it hops from foot to foot::
8:05:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Oh man, roast monkey for dinner!)
8:05:01 PM MisterBoxingBear: Dinner> Oompa Loompa Doomp-::Head blown off::
8:05:56 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::O.O::
8:06:21 PM LtCmdrBusard: I am not eating that.
8:06:34 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...Unless I get really, really hungry.
8:06:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::hears rushing water::
8:07:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I think we're nearing our river.
8:07:41 PM cmdr shelev: No, I'm just sweating.
8:07:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Bird> CAW
8:07:54 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Shoots the bird?::
8:07:59 PM TKirr: ::stops::
8:08:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BIRD> CAW CAW CAW
8:08:16 PM TKirr: ::omgwheresthebirdwhereisit::
8:08:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BIRD> KEK
8:09:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> T'Kirr and Percy's tricorders go batshit nuts.
8:09:21 PM TKirr: ::hears alarm and turns her attention:: Ian..
8:09:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns::
8:09:30 PM LtCmdrBusard: SHIT.
8:09:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BIRD> KEK
8:09:58 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Is it the time traveling kind of batsit nuts?)
8:09:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Wayne's World shimmer effect.
8:10:22 PM MisterBoxingBear: Aw, fuck.
8:10:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Everything the team has interacted with is still present. Ian's walking stick, Dinner, etc.
8:10:33 PM TKirr: ::grabs Ian's arm::
8:11:05 PM TKirr: ((The cave? The thing I picked up?))
8:11:32 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Safeties his rifle, slings it over his shoulder, and throws the headless Willy Wonka money over his shoulder in a fireman's carry:: We want to be inside soon, yes?
8:11:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((The cave is still there, and yes.))
8:11:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> But it's now about 10 degrees warmer, more humid, the trees are taller, and it's starting to rain.
8:12:24 PM LtCmdrBusard: Uh, yes. ::consults tricorder extremely briefly before bolting, making sure McKnight isn't far behind::
8:12:27 PM TKirr: ::takes stock of everything, and everyone::
8:12:36 PM cmdr shelev: ...
8:12:41 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::His run slows to a jog::...Well, that's a bit anti-climactic.
8:12:45 PM TKirr: You okay?
8:12:59 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Slows herself::...Huh.
8:13:13 PM cmdr shelev: That's not my sweat, is it?
8:13:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::covers T'Kirr's hand with his own and squeezes:: That wasn't so bad.
8:13:24 PM cmdr shelev: (( :vomit: ))
8:13:33 PM LtCmdrBusard: +Blackthorne+ Busard to Blackthorne. You guys okay?
8:13:37 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Are these kilometer plus height trees? Maybe there'll be Wookies!)
8:13:45 PM LtCmdrBusard: (MAYBE WE CAN EAT ONE!)
8:14:04 PM TKirr: No. If I hate to guage with the information I have... ::glances at readings:: Eighty years later? Could have been much worse.
8:14:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Yes, it seems fine here....
8:14:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Everyone in one pieces?
8:14:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: piece*
8:14:27 PM MisterBoxingBear: Tell him everyone but you has dinner for tonight.
8:14:40 PM MisterBoxingBear: Okay, you and the salad lady.
8:14:41 PM LtCmdrBusard: +Blackthorne+ Except dinner, yes sir.
8:14:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Very well, good work, and carry on.
8:15:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::to McKnight:: I said unless I was really, really hungry. By the time we get back, I might be.
8:15:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Let's get that water.
8:15:50 PM TKirr: The water sounds louder than before.
8:15:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hm, it does. Maybe the river diverted.
8:16:09 PM TKirr: Or widened.
8:16:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::they move off in the direction of the water and find a river very soon:: Now, if we just had an aqueduct.
8:16:59 PM TKirr: That would be convenient.
8:17:24 PM TKirr: Stone will be too heavy. ::looks around::
8:18:08 PM MisterBoxingBear: Well, we may have time to venture out again. Maybe we'll find something less animated to eat.
8:18:48 PM TKirr: ::pulls up a bit of palm from some brush and scoops some water, testing it::
8:18:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Those large flowers may be watertight. ::points::
8:19:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Or carniverous.
8:19:04 PM LtCmdrBusard: Less animated would be nice.
8:19:11 PM TKirr: ::peers up and follows his line of sight::
8:19:37 PM TKirr: If they're not, we may be able to make them so. ::puts the plant down and moves towards the flowers::
8:20:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Shelev, stop sweating everywhere and find some branches to use as handles.
8:21:27 PM MisterBoxingBear: Although personally, I'd feel way worse about shooting Eyore, but hey, whatever floats your boat.
8:21:38 PM TKirr: Perhaps he should jump in first. ::fingers the flower after scanning it:: Down river.
8:22:20 PM LtCmdrBusard: Are you suggesting that we're GOING to shoot Eeyore? ::Huge eyebrow quirk::
8:22:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes off both sets of pips and pockets them as he opens his collar a bit more, then rips a flower off the stalk::
8:23:07 PM cmdr shelev: Do you seriously mean to dig a ditch however far it is back there?
8:23:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No, I'm going to use this flower as a bucket and I'd like a bloody handle.
8:23:31 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Entering the cave:: Only if there's time, Lieutenant!
8:23:33 PM cmdr shelev: ((I didn't notice the scrollbar :( ))
8:23:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((Dammit man, lrn2aim)
8:23:52 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Totally pouts as she enters the cave::
8:23:57 PM MisterBoxingBear: Now, where can we leave this that isn't right on the cave floor?
8:24:25 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Sighs:: We can put it on a couple of jackets, I guess.
8:24:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes the bigass flower over ((NOT ON MY JACKET DAMMIT)) to the river::
8:24:46 PM cmdr shelev: ::kicks a nearby tree a few times and hopes sticks fall out.
8:24:55 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Ehehe, you're not there...)
8:25:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: You didn't go camping much as a kid did you.
8:25:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ;:puts the big purple flower down::
8:25:25 PM TKirr: ((Go outside and get some friggin' plants))
8:25:33 PM cmdr shelev: :(
8:25:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Shelev. Fill the bucket. I'll get the handle.
8:25:50 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Fiiine)
8:25:58 PM cmdr shelev: The flower you mean?
8:26:01 PM LtCmdrBusard: Or we could grab leaves. Or something.
8:26:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes. ::points at the big purple flower::
8:26:26 PM cmdr shelev: (( I'll turn gay if I touch that. :colbert: ))
8:26:45 PM TKirr: ::picks her own flower, some leaves, and the bit of palm and tries to jiggery-pokery them together::
8:26:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((You're already gay you barf at Ian squeezing a woman's hand))
8:26:55 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Allows himself to snicker a few times as he stares at Ian's jacket.:: Fine. Go grab some leaves. I'll be...standing here with a monkey corpse.
8:27:03 PM cmdr shelev: ::Fiddles with the big gay flower down at the riverbank.::
8:27:21 PM TKirr: ((Oh was that what that was about lol))
8:27:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::gets some sturdy branches that have fallen and schleps back to the river bank::
8:28:07 PM LtCmdrBusard: Right. You do that. ::Goes outside and gets some nice big leaves, before bringing them back inside::
8:28:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::skewers the petals at the top, leaving enough room so that they won't rip, and fills the flower the rest of the way::
8:29:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There, a bucket.
8:29:18 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Gladly rids himself of the weight, letting the monkey land with a wet thud.:: Now there's a housewarming gift if ever I saw one.
8:29:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::hands Shelev a stick:: Go make a handle for T'Kirr's.
8:29:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> It starts to rain like hell.
8:29:42 PM TKirr: ::manages to strip the tough palm into strong corded bands::
8:30:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: Well, yeah. Minus the whole house and warming thing.
8:30:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hurry that up and let's get back!
8:30:51 PM TKirr: ::looks up and tries to find a drier tree::
8:31:03 PM cmdr shelev: ::Stabs the flower with great vengeance::
8:31:18 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Looks out at the rain:: Still want to go out again?
8:31:18 PM cmdr shelev: At least we won't have to worry about losing water to spillage!
8:31:28 PM TKirr: Here, this should help with the weight. I've made three, one for each of us. The petals probably aren't strong to hold water for long by themselves.
8:31:36 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Was that a positive thought?)
8:31:40 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Cylon!)
8:31:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (HE FRAKKED UP OKAY!)
8:32:09 PM cmdr shelev: ((when do I get to knock up a ho))
8:32:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((Tigh you ain't))
8:32:16 PM LtCmdrBusard: It's just rain, so...yes. Definitely. You need to prepare anything first?
8:32:21 PM TKirr: ((Collect rainwater =D))
8:32:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Indeed. ::takes the straps::
8:32:46 PM TKirr: ::helps Shelev with the last two quickly::
8:33:12 PM cmdr shelev: ::Mechanic he ain't.::
8:33:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, hoist that and let's move out! ::having to yell over the rain::
8:33:52 PM cmdr shelev: ::Hoists that barge.::
8:33:59 PM TKirr: ::hoists and moves, now thoroughly soaked::
8:34:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::moves off at a quick pace carrying the waterflowerbucket::
8:34:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> We three make it back to the cave, soaked to the gills.
8:35:01 PM TKirr: ::yells:: Be careful not to trip or slip, or we may lose what we came for!
8:35:16 PM MisterBoxingBear: I'm good.
8:36:16 PM LtCmdrBusard: Good- Oh, hi.
8:36:19 PM cmdr shelev: I'm not sure if I want a fire or not.
8:36:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::drips into the cave::
8:36:26 PM TKirr: I do.
8:36:30 PM TKirr: ::puts bucket down::
8:36:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hay I brought wine, hope you have dinner.
8:37:04 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Looks at the Oompa Loompa::
8:37:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Mm, monkey stew.
8:38:02 PM LtCmdrBusard: Monkey...right, yes.
8:38:07 PM MisterBoxingBear: We WERE just about to go out looking for a second course.
8:38:32 PM TKirr: ::pulls off a strand of berries off her bucket stick, trying not to breathe in the dead monkey::
8:39:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Tricorders go nuts.
8:39:17 PM LtCmdrBusard: FUCK!
8:39:28 PM TKirr: ::finds Ian and holds onto him::
8:39:52 PM TKirr: ::stares at her tricorder, trying to make sense of it::
8:40:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::eyes the tricorder since she's so close:: Chronoton surge from below us?
8:40:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Wayne's World shimmer. Doodooleedooleedoo
8:40:36 PM cmdr shelev: PLEASE HAVE AIR CONDITIONING PLEASE HAVE AIRCONDITIONING
8:40:47 PM TKirr: ((Q: Are we still wet))
8:40:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Yes)
8:41:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A wintery deciduous forest is outside, with about a quarter of a meter of snow on the ground. Temp: 0 degrees.
8:42:08 PM TKirr: ::resembles O_O and curls into a ball::
8:42:18 PM MisterBoxingBear: Well, hey. If I can get these damn clothes dry, that might actually be kinda nice.
8:42:20 PM cmdr shelev: THANK YOU GODS
8:42:22 PM LtCmdrBusard: I CAN EAT OOMPA LOOMPA NOW.
8:42:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::quickly starts to shiver since he's in soaking wet clothes, grabs his phaser and shoots a wall until it glows red::
8:42:54 PM TKirr: ::scuttles to the wall when the phaser's done::
8:42:57 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Shivers and gets closer to the wall::
8:43:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::picks up his jacket and drapes it over T'Kirr, then moves the buckets closer to the wall::
8:43:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::doesn't want the water to freeze::
8:44:09 PM TKirr: ::eyes the buckets and the dead thing:: Have you noticed, everything we touch doesn't change with everything else?
8:44:17 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Glad he at least left his jacket in the cave::
8:44:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods, shivering: Time differential estimate.
8:44:29 PM cmdr shelev: TOUCH THE WORLD!
8:44:47 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Nods:: It's like when you're out of phase, but you can sit down anyway.
8:44:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Instead of raining, it's snowing outside.
8:44:58 PM TKirr: ::nods::
8:45:20 PM TKirr: ::hugs the jacket::
8:45:37 PM cmdr shelev: ::running around outside like an idiot::
8:46:18 PM TKirr: ::catches blurs of blue outside the cave:: I don't care if he's from Andoria, the water on him is going to freeze.
8:46:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Shelev, get in here! Estimate, how far forward or back in time are we?
8:46:55 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Checks::
8:47:22 PM TKirr: ::lets Percy look, not willing to stick a hand out of the jacket::
8:47:33 PM cmdr shelev: ::Comes back inside, covered in ice.::
8:47:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes a bucket handle and sets it above them between two outcroppings::
8:47:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::then takes off his damn shirt and hangs it near the wall to dry::
8:48:03 PM TKirr: ::watches::
8:48:13 PM LtCmdrBusard: L-looks like...ab-bout 12 years and a few months forward, s-sir.
8:48:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: T-twelve years and it goes from jungle to this. Something must have happened.
8:48:36 PM MisterBoxingBear: Wow. That jungle did not age well.
8:48:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: S-Shelev, defrost yourself, I don't care how much you like the cold.
8:49:05 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Unties her jacket and puts it by the wall to hopefully dry faster.::
8:49:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::shoots the wall some more for good measure::
8:50:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Let's get d-dinner there d-dressed and c-cooking.
8:50:15 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Sighs, not altogether happy he has to do this in front of everyone, but it's not like he can just go hide in the corner while all his clothes dry. Thus, sitting down, he begins to undo his boots, so that he can get his pants off.
8:50:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And get d-ry.
8:50:17 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::
8:50:42 PM cmdr shelev: ::Hangs out by the wall and drips.::
8:50:58 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::They're boxers.::
8:51:15 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Tries very hard not to look...much::
8:51:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::also is pantless by now, and hangs his pants on the "clothesline"::
8:51:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes his starfleet command belt and suspends one of the flowers::
8:52:13 PM TKirr: ::just huddles in the jacket in a ball, next to the wall::
8:53:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::eyes it, wondering if it will serve as a cookpot, but figures it won't, and then undoes the whole rig::
8:53:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::sets the leather belt aside, figuring it'll be useful for something other than its normal purpose of holding up trou::
8:54:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::shoots the wall some more::
8:54:23 PM MisterBoxingBear: I don't suppose any sort of pattern with these shifts is becoming obvious to the smart people in the room?
8:54:28 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Looks from Blackthorne to McKnight, then extremely uncomfortably at the soaked jacket next to her, before sighing very heavily and taking off her shirt so it can dry. Thank god for bras::
8:55:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::his skin rapidly drying next to the warm wall:: I hope so.
8:55:38 PM LtCmdrBusard: Not...especially, no. Though I'll note that it's gone back to snow. That...could be something?
8:55:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Snow, but not the desolate tundra we first encountered. A lush forest, just in winter.
8:56:48 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Just gives the admiral a shivery shrug and looks to T'Kirr:: I don't suppose you've got anything?
8:57:20 PM TKirr: ::shakes her head, not appearing to be into the conversation::
8:57:58 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::While removing her shoes:: Damn.
8:57:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Shelev, T'Kirr, you're both going to have to get your clothes dry. ::looks up at the wooden bar::
8:58:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::with as much authority as a man in his underwear can muster::
8:58:29 PM TKirr: Perhaps I can just stay here until it changes again? ::asks hopefully::
8:58:35 PM cmdr shelev: Bollocks.
8:58:44 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sure, that's logic at work.
8:58:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: From previous changes, that'll be another couple of hours.
8:58:54 PM cmdr shelev: ::Strips to federation regulation underpants.::
8:59:21 PM TKirr: And being wet won't matter as long as I stay in this coat. ::sounding somewhat pouty::
8:59:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Commander.
8:59:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::throws Shelev's uniform up on the line::
8:59:52 PM TKirr: ::stops shivering::
9:00:02 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Eventually sits curled up EXTREMELY uncomfortably in underoos, after handing off the clothes.::
9:00:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::throws Percy's uniform up on the line::
9:00:38 PM TKirr: ((Damn what kinda bucket handle is this))
9:00:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((It's a stick))
9:00:57 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Apparently a really big stick)
9:01:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((A thick one, about ten feet long, stretched between two rocky outcroppings near the wall))
9:02:11 PM TKirr: ::takes off the jacket and, shivering, unzips her uniform, peels off the wet layers, and puts them in a pile for someone to pick up, then crawls back into the jacket::
9:02:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::puts the last of the clothes on the line:: Okay, let's get that monkey cooked.
9:02:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
9:02:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
9:02:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
9:02:55 PM TKirr: ::pauses::
9:02:59 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::paused::
9:04:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Next week we see how else I can be mean to our little landing party
9:04:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: Maaan.
9:04:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: But at least there's monkey pot pie.
9:04:43 PM TKirr: Pass.
9:04:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Monkey roast?
9:04:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Monkey kebab?
9:04:55 PM LtCmdrBusard: Hooray meat!
9:04:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Monkey curry?
9:05:05 PM LtCmdrBusard: We don't have the spices for curry.
9:05:25 PM LtCmdrBusard: Unless McKnight happens to have them stuffed somewhere in his uniform.
9:05:32 PM MisterBoxingBear: We have the spice of imagination!
9:05:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Monkey a la King?
9:05:46 PM MisterBoxingBear: I guess he could douse it with pepper spray.
9:06:06 PM TKirr: *GASP*
9:06:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I wonder if anyone's actually done that.
9:06:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...Mm, peppery Oompa Loompa?
9:06:26 PM TKirr: That would be in no way tasty.
9:07:21 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...And now I'm wondering exactly how pepper spray tastes.
9:07:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: So let's see, I've annoyed the desert people, the snow people, the anti-nekkid people... who else?
9:07:28 PM LtCmdrBusard: This is not a safe thought path.
9:08:05 PM TKirr: Who's the anti-nekkid people?
9:08:34 PM cmdr shelev: the anti hot sex people
9:08:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: You, Percy, and Shelev
9:08:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: McKnight and Ian realized immediately what had to be done.
9:09:20 PM MisterBoxingBear: Hot and humid is one of McKnight's least favorite combinations though, so he's had his turn being annoyed.
9:09:20 PM TKirr: I'm anti-nekkid?
9:09:23 PM TKirr: Who said?
9:09:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: Right. How about doing something to annoy the anti-nice sandy beach with an open bar and air conditioned hotel people?
9:10:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: If it's too enjoyable, the characters won't have any adversity to conquer!
9:10:15 PM TKirr: rofl Percy
9:10:20 PM LtCmdrBusard: They'll have the adversity of their own laziness!
9:10:33 PM LtCmdrBusard: Come oooon.
9:10:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: "Yeah.. we could find a way back to Atlantis... but this... this is awesome."
9:10:42 PM LtCmdrBusard: See? See?
9:10:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: "Bring me another drink!"
9:11:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Nah, this plot's about us surviving in a variety of wilds.
9:12:39 PM LtCmdrBusard: Urban wild!
9:12:44 PM LtCmdrBusard: That's a kind of wild.
9:12:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We did that.
9:12:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Remember the crash landing?
9:13:04 PM MisterBoxingBear: That was before she joined, actually.
9:13:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: It was?
9:13:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Huh.
9:13:23 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yup.
9:13:23 PM MisterBoxingBear: It was.
9:13:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Time, it flies.
9:14:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We'll have to do something like that again then. :)
9:14:21 PM LtCmdrBusard: ....Somehow I feel this is not a grand turn of events.
9:14:34 PM TKirr: Heh.
9:14:51 PM TKirr: One of my best logs from that event.
9:15:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: It was a fun plot.
9:16:44 PM cmdr shelev: :ghost:
9:16:49 PM cmdr shelev: :killdozer:
9:16:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, I forgot about them!
9:16:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: :ghost:
9:18:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And the filecabinet plan
9:18:28 PM LtCmdrBusard: o.O
9:18:57 PM MisterBoxingBear: They rolled a file cabinet down the stairs at some gunmen running up them to try and kill the gang.
9:19:08 PM LtCmdrBusard: I see.
9:19:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: It made a LOT of noise.
9:19:37 PM TKirr: Oh that crash landing hah =X
9:19:58 PM TKirr: I thought you meant another crash landing. >_>
9:20:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: When we got shot down?
9:20:56 PM TKirr: Yeah.
9:21:13 PM TKirr: You were talking about the urban one, yeah, duh.
9:23:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The other one was good too. "Shelev commits a war crime, Film at 11"
9:23:42 PM TKirr: Okay well, my head wants to be horizontal, and my desk isn't the most comfortable arrangement for that, so.
9:23:52 PM TKirr: See you next time!
9:23:57 PM LtCmdrBusard: Right!
9:25:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: If you have any suggestions for more annoying climates, let me know. :)
