(21:25:44) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: saunters in to Ten Forward, clad in a blue Hawaiian shirt with red highlights ::
(21:25:49) BAR_Zaxiven: : stands behind the bar, spinning tins, doing all sorts of aerial bartending tricks and flair, pointing at people and making cocktails that come out looking incredible. ::
(21:26:05) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::quietly finishes up the last bit of preparation work before the Atlantis Sickbay can be called complete. Glances over at his terminal when it beeps, a sigh passing his lips as he sees the notification that the party has started:: Self: I think they'll fire me if I don't attend.
(21:26:33) BAR_Zaxiven: :: is wearing a full tux, which looks especially dapper on a Denobulan. ::
(21:26:53) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: BAR: Zaxiven! :: smiles winningly ::
(21:27:29) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: sitting in a seat near the window, mildly annoyed that the only view is a spacedock and several rather loud pieces of apparel. ::
(21:27:49) BAR_Zaxiven: : continues flairing, but turns at the sound of his name :: CO: Ah, Capta... err, Admiral. A fine evening to you, sir. What'll it be?
(21:29:07) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: BAR: Call me Ian. I'd like a gin and tonic.
(21:29:53) BAR_Zaxiven: CO: Sure, thing, Ian. :: has the drink on the bar, completed before he's even finished responding to the request ::
(21:30:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Is sat quietly, alone in the corner, trying to look out the window; but with nothing to look at resorts to staring up at the ceiling.::
(21:30:14) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::pushes himself up from his desk and steps out of the office, looking around at the clean lines, a brief thought running across his mind of how long it'll look this way before being covered in blood:: Wotesh: Lieutenant, Sickbay is yours. And congratulations on the promotion, you've been on the team a long while now - it's about time. ::smiles brightly at the woman::
(21:30:34) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: finishes pinning a colorful paper banner to the ceiling before hopping down as people begin to enter Ten-Forward ::
(21:30:34) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: sips the drinks :: BAR: Excellent, thank you.
(21:30:58) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: <Wotesh> ::looks up from her work and waves a hand, smiling and nodding:: CMO: Enjoy the party, Doctor. I've heard...interesting things. ::stifles a quiet laugh and gets back to monitoring their only patient::
(21:31:34) JackCahalan: :: slips up next to Ian :: BAR: I take it you're taking good care of the Admiral.
(21:31:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: standing near the bar with Kate, wearing a 1950's-style halter dress in a tropical print, the skirt flaring out and stopping above her knees, with a matching pair of open-toed kitten heels and her hair piled up in messy curls, holding a large tray full of Traditional Wright Family Rum Balls (tm) as she observes the room ::
(21:32:01) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns in surprise :: JACK!
(21:32:23) JackCahalan: CO: The one and only! Why are you surprised? I told you I'd be here when the Atlantis relaunched.
(21:32:48) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nudges Kate when Jack walks in :: Kate: Look who made an appearance!
(21:32:56) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::steps onto the Turbolift:: TL: Deck ten, please. ::brushes his hands down his white coat to smooth out the wrinkles, hoping he looks decent enough and isn't expected in dress whites::
(21:32:59) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: looks up at the outburst, quite surprised to see the former bartender walk in. Standing, she decides to head over to the bar, for reasons she has yet to determine ::
(21:33:24) BAR_Zaxiven: JACK: Well, to be fair, :: fixes another drink in seconds on request and continues his flair until he receives another request :: there hasn't been a whole lot of opportunity. They've been on ships that didn't have space for their bartender, so I've been doing this :: continues flairing with his left hand and gestures to the upgrades in the Ten Forward bar ::
(21:33:54) BAR_Zaxiven: JACK: I took some of the changes you've been pushing for, some ideas of my own, and used the damage as a reason for upgrades.
(21:34:08) BAR_Zaxiven: JACK: Go check out the well. :: smiles ::
(21:34:15) NAV_CdrHarper: :: also wearing a tropical print dress, but hers is in a diagonal cut off one shoulder, her hair styled and down ::
(21:34:23) NAV_CdrHarper: :: sees Jack and can't help but to smile brightly ::
(21:34:52) JackCahalan: BAR: This, this looks masterful, sir. :: steps behind the bar and checks it all out, nodding with approval ::
(21:34:57) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Gazes around the room, smiling as everyone gets about enjoying festivities.:: Solir: It is nice to see the young ones happy; enjoying life as they should.
(21:35:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Shall we go say hello?
(21:35:33) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::steps off the Turbolift and through the doors of Ten Forward, smiling as the jubilant atmosphere washes over him, drawing away some of the tiredness from his eyes. Glancing around, he suddenly feels very overdressed::
(21:35:34) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: It looks like there is a line.
(21:35:53) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Solir: Look... Calahan has even returned.
(21:36:00) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Jack: That you did, good as your word. I trust Risa is treating you well? The tan seems to say yes.
(21:36:26) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: enters Ten-Forward in a traditional Vulcan summer dress, but since this isn't a desert she's wearing a fuzzy blue sweater on top, sleeves pulled up past the elbows ::
(21:36:57) JackCahalan: :: trails his fingers over the bar, noting that it's at least the same, remembering lots of times, good and bad, with the gathered smiling faces ::
(21:37:29) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::No one replies, yet Ilaihr nods in agreement with something someone said.:: Solir: Bah. I'll be fine here. No one wants an old man to bring their mood down.
(21:37:40) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: ducks into Ten-Forward's closet to put her costume on ::
(21:37:46) BAR_Zaxiven: :: finishes by flipping several bottles behind his back, having them land in the tin of the drink he is working on, and timing the landings so that each bottle comes down right after the previous ingredient has been added to the mix, tossing each empty (metal) bottle to a row on the bar in turn. He takes the shaker, attaches the tin, shakes, and pours several
(21:38:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: grins :: Kate: Well, you're the prettiest girl in the room, and I have a plate full of rum balls... I bet we could skip the line. But we can wait, if you'd rather. :: pops another rum ball into her mouth, making small pleasure noises ::
(21:38:21) BAR_Zaxiven: :: multicolor drinks side by side by side into cocktail glasses. As the tin empties, he draws out his hands and takes a bow. ::
(21:38:56) JackCahalan: :: applauds :: Well done!
(21:39:01) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: watches the actions of the bartender, whose name is completely slipping her mind at the moment, and notes that it is very clear he is enjoying this. That could be a misreading of emotions, but it seems accurate ::
(21:39:07) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Solir: Is this what you were like, when I was at Selaya? ::Turns to his side, with a sincere look on his face.::
(21:39:10) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: notes Jack in surprise and walks over ::
(21:40:32) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Look who came to visit!
(21:41:16) JackCahalan: :: pauses when T'Kirr approaches and smiles :: T'Kirr: Good to see you, and congratulations on the promotion!
(21:41:47) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Indeed! Jack: It's good of you to attend, and thank you.
(21:41:49) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: Probably, yes. :: takes a rumball and eats it :: Espeshially with dese! :: chews ::
(21:42:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Solir: Oh... ::Grumbles.:: I suppose I could get a drink and say hello. ::Looks back with a stern face.:: I know what Kessel said... I'll be fine....
(21:42:49) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::steps up to the bar, nodding, smiling and offering quiet greetings to a few of the crew he'd met over the last few weeks::
(21:43:03) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Doc, glad you could make it.
(21:43:39) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Gets up and plods over to the bar.:: Self: Worse than the Tellarite...
(21:44:22) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::grins over at the Admiral, quite opening eying the shirt, his voice tinged with playful sarcasm:: CO: Admiral. I thought someone said there was a emergency down here, I just didn't know it was a fashion one.
(21:45:18) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Look at you, unable to appreciate true style when you see it! BAR: Get the doctor a drink, he's obviously lost his senses.
(21:45:55) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::let out a vibrant laugh, raising his hand to Zaxiven:: BAR: A Medical Emergency, if you would?
(21:46:37) JackCahalan: :: watches the new bartender in action, glad to see his bar in good hands ::
(21:46:56) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: I think now is our opening.
(21:47:07) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Gets to the bar.:: CO: I, am under good authority that that style wasn't even stylish in the 20th century... ::Taps the bar.:: BAR: Something fruity please, Zax.
(21:47:10) BAR_Zaxiven: CO: Aye, good Admir... Ian. A good, hearty drink coming up! :: sets a Yoda on the bar :: CMO: Worse! A disembibement. Fortunately, easily curable. :: pushes the Yoda toward Kymar ::
(21:47:15) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: watches Blackthorne, Kymar and the bartenders converse with mild amusement ::
(21:47:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives Kate an exasperated look for gracelessly handling the compliment and chooses to ignore moderate alcohol consumption for the night :: Kate: Come on, let's go. :: walks up to Jack, smiling prettily :: Jack: Jack Calahan! You get another chance at the famous Wright Family Rum Balls! :: offers the platter toward him ::
(21:48:00) BAR_Zaxiven: ENG: Fruity, hmm. Let's go with :: a bit of shuffling, pouring and more shuffling before bringing up a drink :: the Blue Hawaiian!
(21:48:10) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: debates whether or not something to drink would be necessary, but decides this is too good a chance to observe the crew to pass up ::
(21:48:22) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::takes the drink with a grin, raising it in a toast to the Admiral and the bartender:: CO/BAR: To someone's health!
(21:48:40) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: emerges from Ten-Forward's closet in a grass skirt that hangs downward from her plated back as she walks on all fours, topped with a 4XL Hawaiian shirt and a makeshift padded saddle just behind her wings ::
(21:48:45) JackCahalan: CSO: Alexis! Lucky me, I thought I'd missed them for good! :: takes a rum ball and eats it ::
(21:49:06) SEC_Lt_Kuari: ALL: Okay, someone ordered dragon rides...
(21:49:35) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Anyone'll do!
(21:50:29) NAV_CdrHarper: :: leans over and whispers to Lexy :: Do you really think I am the prettiest?
(21:50:34) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Chuckles lightly.:: Bar: Very drôle Mr Zax.
(21:51:50) BAR_Zaxiven: :: nods to Ilaihr :: ENG: Of course. One of my favorites.
(21:52:24) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Slowly slinks back off to his corner, hoping nobody notices.::
(21:52:29) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::takes a long draw of the drink, eyebrows raising in delight:: BAR: My compliments! Good thing I know where the medical kits are stored...
(21:52:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: slides her arm around Kate's waist and pulls her close, murmuring back :: Kate: Every day, beautiful. :: smiles back at Jack :: Jack: How's life on Risa?
(21:53:10) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: notices Ilaihr's disappearing act, but decides to just let it by ::
(21:53:25) BAR_Zaxiven: CMO: What we do, we work together, Doctor!
(21:53:27) JackCahalan: :: smiles at Lexy and Kate, called it :: Lexy: Let's just say, that, as you well know, Risa's native daughters are a delight.
(21:53:59) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::laughs quietly:: BAR: I'll rack 'em up, you knock 'em down?
(21:54:30) BAR_Zaxiven: CMO: Or, I knock 'em down, you get 'em back up! It's a cycle.
(21:54:48) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: laughing, gives Kate a squeeze :: Jack: Indeed they are! I'm glad to hear that you're happy, though we do miss you.
(21:55:01) JackCahalan: Kate: And Kathryn, my dear, I dare say that she suits you!
(21:55:29) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: walks slowly around in a circle and crewmen line up for rides ::
(21:56:10) NAV_CdrHarper: Jack: She does indeed, Jack. I am glad that you have found someone too!
(21:56:17) BAR_Zaxiven: :: begins another flair routine while he waits for the next order ::
(21:56:38) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: : notes the time :: Less than five minutes to a new year, folks!
(21:56:39) XO_Capt_TKirr: BAR: Mr. Zaxiven, would you make me something mild, please?
(21:57:25) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Retakes his seat. Gently sips his drink, and shrugs.:: Self: Its not bad. Not bad at all. Thott Groll/Grott Tholl: Would you two care for a taste?.... No of course, I dont suppose a pair of Breen could handle alcohol. ::Laughs, before sighing as the twins fade away from his vision.::
(21:58:03) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: wonders why Lieutenant Kuari is offering rides and then decides that it may be for humorous purposes ::
(21:58:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blushes slightly and offers the tray toward the bar :: Zaxiven: Zaxiven, would you care to try one of the famous and traditional Wright Family Rum Balls? They're traditional! And famous!
(21:59:08) JackCahalan: Lexy: I miss all of you too, dearly. But I think my bar is in good hands. BAR: You have to, trust me, they're fantastic.
(21:59:21) BAR_Zaxiven: XO: Of course! How about something balanced. How about... :: sets a cocktail glass on the bar, drops ice, rum, Cointreau and graperfruit juice into his tins, shakes and strains into the glass :: this.
(21:59:51) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Kessel Moran: You've missed your medication Zid Ziih!
(22:00:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Kessel: Kessel...what are you doing here?
(22:00:16) BAR_Zaxiven: JACK: Well, bring 'em here!
(22:00:43) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <Kessel> ENg: I'm not here. Thats why I'm here.
(22:00:51) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: takes a sip of Zaxiven's offered drink, holds a grimace, and takes another sip, accepting it :: BAR: Thank you.
(22:00:56) BAR_Zaxiven: :: begins the New Year countdown program on the lighting system ::
(22:01:36) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Kessel: I'm hallucinating again... aren't I?
(22:02:16) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <Kessel Moran> ENG: Oh yeah. Big time.

(22:05:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Chuckles at the sight of such delight.::

(22:06:01) NAV_CdrHarper: :: kisses Lexy, closing her eyes ::
(22:06:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <Kessel Moran> ENG: Take your meds. Or... I dont know how many more of these you'll see, let alone remember.

(22:07:11) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: No need, it's perfect.

(22:24:23) NAV_CdrHarper: :: takes a rumball :: I will have his then.

(22:26:35) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO: I apologise if I have offended you Ms Wright... I am not in a food mood. ::Makes the shot vanish.::
(22:26:54) BAR_Zaxiven: :: watches Ilaihr expectantly ::
(22:27:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: No problem. Maybe next year, then! :: still smiling, leads Kate to the dance floor and holds her close, swaying to the music ::
(22:27:23) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: sways her hips to the Sinatra song, pleased at Cahalan's singing, while giving someone a ride on her back ::
(22:27:51) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Shakes his head and sighs, before tapping the bar, and slowly walking off.::
(22:27:59) JackCahalan: :: segues into another Sinatra track, Swinging on a Star, since it suits his voice :::
(22:28:24) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: notes the song and decides to research it later. It sounds rather interesting ::
(22:28:28) BAR_Zaxiven: :: watches Ilaihr walk off, a little puzzled that there was NO reaction to the drink, good or bad ::
(22:29:00) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: finishes his drink :: BAR: Another, if you please?
(22:29:39) BAR_Zaxiven: CO: Of course! Same thing? :: prepares his ingredients ::
(22:30:14) NAV_CdrHarper: :: figures out the human dance steps fairly easily and dances along, enjoying the closeness with Lexy ::
(22:30:26) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: BAR: Yes, just a tad more lime please.
(22:30:44) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: notes her line has dissolved as many go to watch the singing and listens intently to the next song ::
(22:31:35) BAR_Zaxiven: CO: Of course! :: puts up a glass, pours the tonic and gin at the same time and stirs, squeezing in extra lime, but not too much ::
(22:32:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: inexpertly but enthusiastically slow dancing, smiling up at Kate :: Kate: This is very nice. I like this. Jack has a nice voice, doesn't he?
(22:32:47) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Returns to the bar.:: BAR: A real drink this time please.
(22:33:12) NAV_CdrHarper: :: finds herself leading, knowing a bit about dancing but they're all Risan dances :: Lexy: Yes he does, but somehow, that is not surprising.
(22:34:01) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: goes up to the stage and sits, awaiting Cahalan to finish for her turn ::
(22:34:10) JackCahalan: :: takes the medley into Just the Way You Look Tonight for the finale ::
(22:34:22) BAR_Zaxiven: :: nods to Ilaihr and puts up a tequila over ice with lime juice :: ENG: Try this.
(22:34:42) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: sips at the drink :: BAR: Perfect, Zaxiven, thank you.
(22:35:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Sips it, his face contorting slightly from the Tequila.:: BAR: Much better.
(22:35:24) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: sips at her tea and continues to watch the people, trying to put names to some of the unfamiliar faces in the room ::
(22:35:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: I'd kind of like to sing a song, but I can't decide what to sing... and I'm nowhere near as good as Jack. :: naturally following Kate's steps as they move across the floor ::
(22:35:44) BAR_Zaxiven: :: turns to Blackthorne, but keeps his eyes on Ilaihr as a communication that something is wrong :: CO: Of course!
(22:36:00) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: notes the body language ::
(22:36:18) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: You sing?
(22:36:28) JackCahalan: :: finishes up and takes a bow ::
(22:36:40) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: chats idly with a couple of crewmen that approach her while Ian gets his drink ::
(22:36:55) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: claps politely for Cahalan ::
(22:37:14) JackCahalan: All: Thank you Atlantis! :: trots off the stage ::
(22:37:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: her smiles turns a bit sheepish :: Kate: I like to sing, but I'm not great or anything. :: stops dancing to applaud Jack ::
(22:37:54) NAV_CdrHarper: :: joins in the clapping ::
(22:38:48) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Staring into the glass:: Self: Pretty woman...mmhmm...down the street...
(22:38:51) BAR_Zaxiven: :: is busy making a drink and unable to applaud his old friend, so he lets out a whoop ::
(22:39:01) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: high-fives Cahalan as she takes the stage, and begins to dance as the tune to Portal begins ::
(22:39:10) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: Well, enjoying it is the important part. And if the people have enough to drink they do not care how good you are or are not.
(22:39:31) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: wishes she had a PADD or something to take down at least parts of the songs so that she could find them in the computer database later ::
(22:39:59) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Jack: Now why did I not know you could sing like that?
(22:40:18) JackCahalan: Ian: We never had a karaoke setup before. :: shrugs ::
(22:41:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Would you... wanna sing with me? Assuming we can find a song we both know...
(22:42:06) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: Me? Oh, well, I do not... well, often... sing in public.
(22:42:17) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Jack: Fair enough.
(22:42:32) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: as the song "Still Alive" begins to a light guitar, sings about cake and not dying ::
(22:42:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: I don't either, so we're even! :: hopeful smile ::
(22:43:12) NAV_CdrHarper: :: nervously chuckles ::
(22:43:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Catches what Wright said as he passes by.:: CSO: Pretty Woman... and you have the motivation. ::Smiles, and continues passing by.::
(22:44:15) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: finds Still Alive to be damned appropriate right about now ::
(22:44:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Well, its fine if you don't want to. :: hears Ilaihr's suggestion and considers it, if she ends up going up there alone ::
(22:45:06) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: Alright. I will do it.
(22:46:11) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: begins to wiggle a bit more as the song comes to a close with several "still alive's", then bows her head as it finishes ::
(22:46:25) NAV_CdrHarper: :: applauds Kuari ::
(22:46:49) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: wonders how Earth came up with such fascinating music ::
(22:46:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: applauds Kuari as well :: Kate: Do you have any songs in mind?
(22:47:14) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: I do not, but I am sure we can find something.
(22:48:13) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Stands at the entrance of Ten-Forward, gazes back one last time at the smiles of, what to him, are the young.:: Self: I hope I can remember some of this. ::Taps his stick on the floor, before slowly slinking off.::
(22:49:46) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: takes another sip of her tea before noticing it had started to chill slightly. Decides to ignore it and continue watching the... what was it called? It may have started with a "k", but she wasn't sure ::
(22:50:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Do you know "Pretty Woman"?
(22:51:15) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: No. Aside from you? :: hopeful grin ::
(22:51:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles with a blush :: Kate: Or maybe, "A Little Help From My Friends"?
(22:52:03) NAV_CdrHarper: Lexy: I think so, yes.
(22:52:22) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: trots off stage and back to her dragon ride spot ::
(22:52:38) NAV_CdrHarper: :: smiles at Kuari as she passes :: Nicely done!
(22:53:05) SEC_Lt_Kuari: NAV: Thanks! I'm surprised the computer knew it.
(22:53:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives Kuari a thumbs up as she passes :: Kate: Then let's do it! :: pulls Kate toward the stage ::
(22:53:38) NAV_CdrHarper: :: pulled onto the stage ::
(22:53:57) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: leans back and sips at his drink ::
(22:54:40) JackCahalan: BAR: Hey Zax... how about a beer? :: grins :: Something dark.
(22:55:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: the classic Beatles tune begins, the girls moving to the music in their tropical print dresses ::
(22:57:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sings :: All: And I'll try not to sing out of key, OH, I get by with a little help from my friends...
(22:57:32) NAV_CdrHarper: :: opens her mouth to sing and a silky alto comes out ::
(22:58:24) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Enters his quarters, and slumps down in Betty's old Big Chair.:: Self: I still remember... I still remember... ::Takes a hypospray out and administers it's contents.:: I still...
(22:58:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles over at Kate's silky alto joined with her light soprano ::
(22:58:46) NAV_CdrHarper: Do you neeeed anybody?
(22:58:53) NAV_CdrHarper: :: belts a bit on that one ::
(22:59:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looking at Kate meaningfully as she sings :: I just need someone to love...
(23:00:01) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: watches and listens intently as Harper and Wright sing ::
(23:00:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: also belts :: Could it beeeee anybody?
(23:01:23) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Allows the emotions of the ship to course through him, in privacy, feeling the good vibes from Ten-Forward. A small tear rolls down his cheek.:+

(23:02:02) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: listens to the singing and notes that it is a rather... meaningful song. Another one for the list ::
(23:02:10) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: finds Wright's tray wherever she left it and scarfs a few rum balls ::
(23:02:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: those words in that voice makes her blush to her toes, but she carries on singing until the short song comes to an end ::
(23:02:51) NAV_CdrHarper: With a little help from my friends!
(23:03:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: From my frieeeeends~!
(23:03:41) JackCahalan: :: claps, nodding appreciatively ::

(23:05:00) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: raises his drink and speaks clearly and loudly, cutting through the room in that way a commanding officer can :: A TOAST!
(23:05:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: follows with a final wave to the crowd ::
(23:05:27) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: TO ATLANTIS, HOME, AND FAMILY!
