(10:28:35 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Unless you have your heart set on a big to-do.
(10:28:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Whoops
(10:28:49 PM) CdrTKirr: What
(10:29:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: And um....dont go to bed mad.
(10:29:03 PM) CdrHarper [CdrHarper@dm-7498.dr03.blfd.wv.frontiernet.net] entered the room.
(10:29:36 PM) Percy: Yeah, I actually want a bit of the to-do. Nothing HUGE, but something sweet.
(10:29:49 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Just passed 28 years. :D
(10:29:56 PM) CdrTKirr: Wowoo
(10:30:00 PM) Percy: Also, if anyone tries to be all "nooo we want THIS way" I will KICK THERE ASS.
(10:30:02 PM) CdrTKirr: Approaching eight here =P
(10:30:04 PM) Percy: Also, awesome!
(10:30:09 PM) Percy: Yay!
(10:30:16 PM) Percy: (*their)
(10:30:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: hehe
(10:30:23 PM) Percy: (Said I was dopey :-P)
(10:30:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, let's get this party started, riiiight
(10:30:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yeah, do what YOU want, not what people (family) expect. We had a small rose garden cermoney and huge reception.
(10:31:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: *ceremony
(10:31:23 PM) CdrTKirr: Hm, right? Have... I been doing it right all these years? :: TWEEEEEEEET :: Attention!
(10:31:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Weddings were simpler in Elizabethan times)
(10:31:42 PM) CdrTKirr: (OMG did you just call her old?)
(10:31:42 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: aa ::
(10:31:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (I have many times before, it's okay)
(10:32:00 PM) CdrTKirr: (Oh... okay)
(10:32:03 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (*BONK*)
(10:32:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::AA::
(10:32:58 PM) Percy: ::AA::
(10:33:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: Speaking of weddings.... tonight we take a break from the surface activities for the wedding of Ian Blackthorne and T'Kirr in the ship's arboretum! Reception to follow in Ten Forward afterward!
(10:34:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions? :D
(10:34:46 PM) AdmACZuriyev [Mibbit@dm-7498.dr03.blfd.wv.frontiernet.net] entered the room.
(10:34:50 PM) CdrTKirr: Isn't the arboretum aft?
(10:35:22 PM) CdrTKirr: :: snicker :: Now I'm making everyone look it up, aren't I?
(10:35:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Deck 20. Damn, I had to look it up.
(10:35:46 PM) CdrTKirr: Haha. Sweet. Parade through the ship.
(10:36:04 PM) CdrTKirr: Can I have a little goblin rolling the red carpet in front of me the whole way?
(10:36:14 PM) Percy: Lol
(10:36:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: A carpet, sure... but a goblin?
(10:36:31 PM) CdrTKirr: Elf?
(10:36:45 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Cubit?
(10:36:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: and his cousin?
(10:36:58 PM) CdrTKirr: Yes. =P
(10:37:10 PM) Percy: Right-o!
(10:37:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: OK then, let's get going.

(10:37:28 PM) Cubit [Mibbit@dm-28746.tukw.qwest.net] entered the room.
(10:38:22 PM) AdmACZuriyev: :: having arrived to survey the colony, he was told that he could do the job while he's in town, and is waiting in the arboretum ::
(10:38:51 PM) CdrTKirr: :: is hidden away somewhere leafy ::
(10:39:08 PM) Cubit: :: looking all spiffy with his nifty bow tie and spit shine ::
(10:39:47 PM) Rubix: (test)
(10:40:12 PM) Rubix: :: Looking quite adorable in her little poofy sparkly dress and bow on head::
(10:40:47 PM) LtKuari: :: stands to one side, tail wiggling frantically like a dog about to jump out of its skin with excitement but very much unsure how to behave in this setting ::
(10:40:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: in a side room, adjusting his full dress uniform complete with medals ::
(10:43:09 PM) Percy: :: Sitting in the "audience" section of the arboretum, looking quite smart in her dress uniform. Today was exciting!::
(10:43:30 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sitting on one of the benches waiting for things to begin, adjusts her uniform a little ::
(10:43:47 PM) CdrHarper: :: waiting in the audience next to Roxy, also in dress uniform ::
(10:46:19 PM) Cubit: :: patrolling back and forth, protecting the roll of red carpet, however it looks like he is pacing ::
(10:47:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Somewhat compulsively adjusts his necktie as he walks in. In general, though there is a direct marine equivalent to the Star Fleet duty uniform, the more comfortable fatigues are generally used on this ship. Even the battle armor is surprisingly comfortable if put on and secured right. In short, he doesn't do well with dress up. ::
(10:47:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: at the appointed time, he enters the arboretum in silence and approaches Zuriyev ::
(10:47:45 PM) Rubix: :: Going about, almost nervously flattening out any creases she finds::
(10:48:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to the side after nodding to the Admiral ::
(10:49:10 PM) Percy: :: Smiles as McKnight sits down, whispering to him:: Neck a bit itchy, is it? :: And then, turning as Blackthorne enters, she goes silent once more.::
(10:50:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: clears his mind as he waits ::
(10:50:49 PM) LtKuari: :: sits as still as she can, tail still busy under someone else's chair, looking to McKnight somewhere in front of her ::
(10:50:55 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: smiles as she thinks about her and Johnny's wedding ::
(10:51:18 PM) CdrHarper: :: watches Kuari's tail, careful not to step on it ::
(10:51:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Smiles and nods in greeting, though it segues into a frown as it's made clear how obvious his discomfort is, prompting him to still his fidgeting by force of will and sit down to watch the proceedings. ::
(10:53:00 PM) CdrTKirr: :: emerges from the trees behind the assembled in a shiny dark silvery gown, simple yet elegant, and strides carefully and slowly up the walk towards the small platform where Blackthorne and Zuriyev wait ::
(10:53:02 PM) Cubit: :: beeps a question to Rubix ::
(10:53:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: watches her with a smile on his face ::
(10:53:59 PM) LtKuari: :: turns her attention to T'Kirr ::
(10:54:24 PM) Rubix: :: Makes a brief "make way!" beep to Cubit as she spots T'Kirr emerging, scrambling off to her appointed place around the carpet::
(10:55:09 PM) Cubit: :: whirrs down to his correct spot ::
(10:55:50 PM) Percy: :: If the congregation is expected to rise, Percy rises, respectfully, and turns to see T'Kirr walking down the aisle, a warm smile on her face. This was one of those moments you remembered all your life. She was glad she got to be present for it.::
(10:55:59 PM) CdrTKirr: :: wears no hair pieces and holds nothing in her hands, but faint traces of glitter sparkle from under her eyes as the lights catch her face on the platform facing Ian ::
(10:57:28 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Belatedly remembers to take his dress hat off, whistling softly to himself, but not loud enough to carry as he sees T'Kirr moving up the aisle. And in a dress! :: Never thought I'd see the day.
(10:57:39 PM) AdmACZuriyev: Please, be seated. :: gestures to all that stood ::
(10:57:51 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Is all over the sitting thing. ::
(10:58:01 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: seats herself comfortably ::
(10:58:32 PM) Percy: :: Sits down quietly, looking to the couple and Zuriyev.::
(10:59:18 PM) CdrTKirr: ACTION> A Vulcan marriage drum begins to palpate softly in the background from no apparent source, soft enough to not intrude on words but strong enough to accentuate the proceedings.
(10:59:36 PM) AdmACZuriyev: We are gathered here today to witness the marriage of Ian Blackthorne and T'Kirr. They have graciously asked me to officiate, which is one of the more pleasurable duties afforded to me.
(11:01:09 PM) AdmACZuriyev: This ceremony will be an amalgamation of Vulcan and Betazoid customs, and will proceed at the pace of the bride and groom.
(11:01:51 PM) CdrTKirr: :: displays an almost excited but subtle smile to her eyes as she looks at Ian before turning her attention to Zuriyev ::
(11:02:33 PM) AdmACZuriyev: First, there will be a Vulcan bonding ceremony. :: nods to the couple :: You may begin.
(11:02:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to look to T'Kirr, following her lead ::
(11:03:23 PM) CdrTKirr: :: breathes deeply once before returning her attention to Ian and holding the first two fingers of her right hand before her, meaning to cross them with Ian's ::
(11:04:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: raises his hand and extends the appropriate fingers, and crosses them with hers :
(11:06:50 PM) Percy: :: Rests her hand on McKnight's, smiling as the ceremony progresses::
(11:08:26 PM) CdrTKirr: I, T'Kirr of the Surkanar estate of Vulcan offer my mind and body to you, Ian Blackthorne of Betazed, here on the USS Atlantis, what we agree to be home to us and our family. :: gives a slight acknowledgement to the assembly then closes her eyes as if in concentration ::
(11:09:45 PM) Percy: ("1....2....3....4...I declare...a....thumb war.")
(11:10:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (lol)
(11:10:22 PM) CdrTKirr: May the experience of our years before aid each other in the years to come as one and serve as a strength to our bond.
(11:14:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: closes his eyes and feels their existing bond in his mind flare up before settling into something much stronger than before ::
(11:14:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: opens his eyes after a few long moments ::
(11:15:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes a deep breath and looks to Zuriyev ::
(11:16:20 PM) AdmACZuriyev: The Vulcan bond is complete. As a merging of these two cultures, there shall now be a Betazoid ceremony.
(11:16:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: offers both of his hands to her, close together, with palms up ::
(11:17:47 PM) LtKuari: :: thumps her tail more subtly now, curiously paying close attention lest she miss something mystical or subtle ::
(11:18:28 PM) CdrTKirr: :: places her hands tentatively above Ian's, awaiting his prompting ::
(11:18:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: clasps her hands and nods to Zuriyev ::
(11:19:12 PM) AdmACZuriyev: :: produces a short, thin, golden rope from an ornate wooden box, and wraps it around their intertwined hands ::
(11:20:04 PM) CdrTKirr: :: watches their hands somewhat nervously ::
(11:20:30 PM) Rubix left the room (quit: Exit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(11:20:30 PM) Percy left the room (quit: Exit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(11:22:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Just to let you know, Rachel's computer is being screwy. She's trying a reboot now.)
(11:22:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (giving her a minute)
(11:24:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ( Kay.)
(11:26:10 PM) Percy [Mibbit@dm-27274.hsd1.ma.comcast.net] entered the room.
(11:26:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (yay!)
(11:26:19 PM) CdrTKirr: (WB!)
(11:26:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I, Ian Blackthorne, have chosen you, T'Kirr to be my bondmate. Let us be one in thought and being, for as long as our mortal forms walk together on this plane. :: closes his eyes and reaches out with his mind ::
(11:26:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (WB indeed.)
(11:26:36 PM) Percy: (Toopid compy. Thanks)
(11:28:02 PM) CdrTKirr: :: receives the psychic touch quite readily with the aid of their clasped hands and takes a moment to control her breathing in the significance of the moment ::
(11:28:17 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Looks on, the mental aspects of all this completely lost on him, but he understands affection and the decision to make a commitment well enough. So he smiles softly to himself as he watches the cermony, giving Percy's hand a quick and gewntle squeeze back as he does so. ::
(11:28:39 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ( gentle, even. )
(11:28:42 PM) CdrTKirr: :: sways just a little ::
(11:28:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: completes the bond, intertwining their mind like the rope around their hands ::
(11:29:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: opens his eyes and takes a deep breath ::
(11:30:14 PM) CdrTKirr: :: opens hers as well, her eyes glassy pools as she looks into his ::
(11:31:21 PM) AdmACZuriyev: :: removes the rope and smiles :: Let the double strength of this bond forged of two cultures show to all the love and commitment these two have shown to each other.
(11:32:30 PM) AdmACZuriyev: By the power vested in me by the United Federation of Planets and Starfleet Command, I proclaim you to be husband and wife. :: smiles at Ian :: You may kiss the bride.
(11:33:00 PM) LtKuari: :: smiles toothily, unlike McKnight understands the psychic bonding part and restrains herself from making a noise ::
(11:33:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: grins :: I know that.
(11:34:01 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes T'Kirr into his arms and kisses her, the physical sensation heightened tenfold by their bond ::
(11:34:29 PM) Percy: :: RAUCOUS APPLAUSE!::
(11:34:43 PM) CdrTKirr: :: is kissed soundly, her thoughts taking them back to the first time ::
(11:35:13 PM) Percy: (Unless the sensation is heightened tenfold THAT way. In which case...eeeew, and here's some viagra)
(11:35:21 PM) CdrHarper: :: stands and cheers ::
(11:35:33 PM) LtKuari: :: takes Percy's and others' cue to make noise and does so rather throatily ::
(11:36:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: claps happily for the new couple ::
(11:37:02 PM) AdmACZuriyev: :: as they part, he waits for the cheers to die down a bit :: The reception will be in Ten Forward momentarily!
(11:37:08 PM) Cubit: :: beeps and whirrs ::
(11:37:29 PM) Rubix [Mibbit@dm-27274.hsd1.ma.comcast.net] entered the room.
(11:37:35 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Stands up and claps, the important parts pretty clear to him. The telepathic stuff, he still has no real awareness of except in a theoretical sense, but that's okay. Tenfold...good luck on that honeymoon! ::
(11:37:40 PM) Rubix: :: Dances happily::
(11:37:58 PM) CdrTKirr: :: turns to everyone, hand in Ian's, her face radiant with her characteristic lack of smile, yet showing all the other signs of being ecstatic ::
(11:38:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: also turns to face the crowd, all grins ::
(11:38:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Annnnd, scene. Camera up, pan across the Ten Forward party!
(11:39:42 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Sweet. Now McKnight's got a beer in his hand. This particular ritual, he understands quite well. ::
(11:39:50 PM) LtKuari: :: winds her way snakelike through the crowd of people with no apparent destination ::
(11:40:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: standing at the wedding cake with T'Kirr ::
(11:41:11 PM) CdrTKirr: :: studies the cake, a glass of something questionable in one hand ::
(11:41:12 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: has a nice margarita in one hand and a small gift-box in the other, watching the cake cutting ::
(11:41:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: puts down his scotch and picks up the knife ::
(11:42:13 PM) Percy: :: Holds a glass of something brightly colored and bubbly as she watches the couple at the cake. She, like all guests at wedding parties at this point in time, is excited about the ceremony. But what she's REALLY excited for? Finding out what kind of cake it is, and eating it!::
(11:42:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes T'Kirr's hand and puts it on his with the knife ::
(11:43:27 PM) CdrTKirr: :: goes with it ::
(11:43:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: cuts the cake! ::
(11:44:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> THE CAKE IS CHOCOLATE!
(11:44:35 PM) LtKuari: !
(11:44:47 PM) Percy: Woooooo! :: Makes happy noises::
(11:45:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: grins ::
(11:45:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Cake is cut for everyone and passed around!
(11:46:25 PM) LtKuari: :: takes her piece right off the plate as it's handed to her in one mouthful :: Yru can harv teh plaet.
(11:47:22 PM) Percy: :: As she gets her pieces, her eyes go wide with happy, and as she takes a bite, you can almost see little anime style hearts floating around her head.:: Mmmmm....someone else's wedding cake....
(11:47:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: offers T'Kirr a bite of cake on a fork, sparing her the indignity of the human tradition of smashing it into her face ::
(11:48:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: takes a small bite of cake, offers the rest to Kuari, as it doesnt really go with her drink ::
(11:48:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Takes his plate of cake gratefully, but rather than start on it, he hands it to Percy. :: Here, Perce, hold onto this for me a sec. Gotta take care of something real quick. Do NOT eat it before I get back.
(11:48:07 PM) CdrTKirr: :: blissfully ignorant of what she's missing, accepts the piece delicately into her mouth ::
(11:48:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: eats some too ::
(11:48:56 PM) Percy: Awww....:: Looks debatingly at the cake as she holds it for him::
(11:48:59 PM) LtKuari: :: hinges open her mouth before Carre eagerly :: Thrnx!
(11:49:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Your restraint shall not soon be forgotten.
(11:51:02 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: With that, keeping his fork, he begins tapping it firmly against the side of his glass to summon the attention of the room. Sadly, whatever these glasses are made of, the acoustics are all wrong, and it lacks the desired effect. That's okay. He'll just go for something a little more along the lines of his usual on the job style. He clears his throat...
(11:51:21 PM) Percy: ...Hm...perhaps he will reward me with...more cake? :: Mutters to herself before listening to speech!::
(11:51:25 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ATTENTION ON DECK!
(11:51:34 PM) LtKuari: :: plants her hindquarters, just holding back from giving a salute, and wraps her tail the wrong way, snaking around Carre's feet ::
(11:51:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: grins and looks at the Colonel as the rest of the room snaps to ::
(11:51:47 PM) CdrHarper: :: jumps out of her skin and comes to attention! ::
(11:51:48 PM) CdrTKirr: :: arches an eyebrow at McKnight ::
(11:51:59 PM) Percy: :: Can not snap to with a piece of cake in each hand!!::
(11:52:34 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: Right, thank you. You know, I actually don't get to do that as often as you might think. At ease, by the way.
(11:52:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: feels something wrap around her ankles and hopes no one's pet snake has crashed the party ::
(11:53:39 PM) CdrHarper: :: breathes again as she comes to ease ::
(11:54:20 PM) ColDougMcKnight: So, I went into this not expecting to really get many of the finer points of what was going on. And then, the Admiral here asked me to say a few words after the deed was done. I'll be honest, because I've never been too comfortable with doing it any other way; I was hesitant to take him up on it, at first.
(11:55:26 PM) LtKuari: :: listens attentively, because it's McKnight ::
(11:55:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: thankful that he did ::
(11:58:35 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Mind you, I have, on occasion, tried my hand at speechifying when I thought the occasion called for it, but generally speaking, it's not really my thing. And truth be told, the Admiral and I have had our differences in the past. You know how it is. Different upbringing, different priorities...well, the truth is that I've wanted to explain issues I've had
(11:59:51 PM) ColDougMcKnight: with my fists. Did it once, too! But...then I realized that's not what's important, and I'd be quite the asshole if I let it become so. So instead, how'd you like to hear the one thing about you I've never had cause to question, Ian?
(12:00:09 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: chuckles :: By all means!
(12:01:13 AM) CdrTKirr: :: looks halfway amused but unable to disguise the curiousity in her expression ::
(12:03:46 AM) ColDougMcKnight: In all my years, both in and out of the service, I don't think I've ever met anyone with a stronger sense of purpose, sense of resolve. For good or ill, once you've got your end goal in mind, there's not a damn thing that'll keep you from either seeing it done, or dying in the attempt. And, well...you seem to have made it here.
(12:04:27 AM) CdrTKirr: :: meets Ian's glance ::
(12:04:54 AM) ColDougMcKnight: And now, you've finally found someone who shares your sense of dedication. As it should be. You're also a man who doesn;t settle for anything less than the best, after all.
(12:05:36 AM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Raises his glass in salute. :: You two are a hell of a pair. Watch each other's backs, treat each other right, and the universe would do well the get the fuck out of your way!
(12:05:57 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smiles :: Thank you, Doug, that means a lot.
(12:06:19 AM) CdrTKirr: :: dips her head in grateful acknowledgement to McKnight ::
(12:06:31 AM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: Yeah, well, name a kid after me or something. Or a dog. I like dogs.
(12:06:51 AM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Knocks back his beer. :: There, duty done. Now eat some damn cake, you two.
(12:07:00 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: You heard the man!
(12:07:12 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: offers her another bite of cake ::
(12:07:15 AM) LtKuari: :: watches all the Alpha stuff ::
(12:07:49 AM) CdrTKirr: :: eats it dutifully and raises her glass, which happens to be of champagne, to Ian ::
(12:08:20 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: finds a flute of champagne and touches it to hers, eyes locked with her ::
(12:08:34 AM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Finds his way back to Percy. :: See? Told you I'd keep it short. Now cake me.
(12:09:34 AM) LtKuari: :: instead of Blackthorne and T'Kirr, watches McKnight return to Busard, still sitting tall next to Carre :: When are they gonna get married?
(12:09:58 AM) CdrHarper: :: noms on cake ::
(12:10:37 AM) Percy: :: Collects a forkful of cake, making airplane noises as she flies it into his mouth:: Or....did you just want the plate back?
(12:11:19 AM) Percy: Because I recall promises of restraint not being soon forgotten. And this IS some pretty awesome cake.
(12:12:03 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: I don't know, seems likely to happen before to long though.
(12:13:39 AM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Sighs, but is sporting about it and accepts the cake. It IS pretty good stuff. :: I guess I did say something like that. What did you have in mind, then?
(12:14:15 AM) LtKuari: :: turns her great head to look up at Carre :: I don't understand, they waited a whole year before deciding to get married. Why does it take so long? If they're mates, they should be mated. Kick the slive and be done with it!
(12:14:42 AM) CdrHarper: :: snickers at Kuari ::
(12:15:18 AM) CdrTKirr: :: sips her champagne and looks around at the crowd distractedly, not really seeing anyone in particular as her mind is right beside her ::
(12:16:41 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: Kick the slive? Not sure I understand that, but...sometimes people just want to make sure its real and not hormones effecting their judgement about another person.
(12:17:07 AM) AdmACZuriyev: ACTION> Music begins to play, and Zuriyev gets the crowd's attention somewhat more subtly than McKnight.
(12:17:24 AM) AdmACZuriyev: Everyone, please clear the floor so the bride and groom may share their first dance!
(12:17:51 AM) Percy: :: Seeming to think about it for a moment, Percy pouts her lips, then points at them with an index finger with an "mmmm?" sound...after clearing some space for ze bride and groom.::
(12:18:18 AM) LtKuari: :: blinks, not understanding :: Ah, slives are annoying creatures on Ruka. Just gotta kick 'em and forego all the chasing. Get it done with.
(12:18:26 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: offers a hand to T'Kirr :: Shall we?
(12:18:33 AM) LtKuari: :: gets up and moves ::
(12:19:02 AM) CdrTKirr: :: sets down her champagne on the nearest stable surface and takes the hand ::
(12:19:11 AM) CdrTKirr: Lead the way.
