(21:22:52) CO_Capt_Harper: :: in the ready room, finishing up her reply to the kids on Risa ::
(21:23:34) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::Walking through the Atlantis to his cabin, suitcase in hand::
(21:23:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: in her quarters, looking at the positive news reporting on the refugee situation with grim satisfaction ::
(21:24:39) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: grabbing a quick meal before going back to the science labs ::
(21:24:58) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Is at his usual station on the bridge, at something of a loss as to what to do, so is just pottering about.::
(21:25:56) CO_Capt_Harper: :: signs off the video message with an enthusiastic close, encouraging them to continue reaching for the stars! ::
(21:26:31) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::places his suitcase on his bed, sighs, and thinks to himself, "I'm ready." Leaves the cabin and walks out to find the lab::
(21:28:02) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Hums cheerfully to himself, still working over that sensor jammer's schematics.::
(21:28:03) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sends the message with a flourish on the button press and is still smiling from it ::
(21:28:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: strides purposefully down the corridor towards the lounge aboard Atlantis, knowing full well by being in charge of the duty roster that it's currently operating, having no desire to go to a lounge aboard Vinland ::
(21:28:58) CTO_Major_Wolfe: :: is in Holodeck 2, shooting stuff. ::
(21:29:42) AUX_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Greetings Commander, I'm on board. Any thing you need done?
(21:33:04) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: stops in the corridor, paying attention to the comm and thinking :: AUX: This is First Officer Vallero. Who is this?
(21:33:50) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::In the uncomfortable emptiness and silence of the bridge, decides to play some music for a while, whilst he works.::
(21:34:13) AUX_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Medical Officer Morsby, reporting for duty. Got any sick people I need to cure? I have a degree in Psychology as well.
(21:34:50) CO_Capt_Harper: :: once the message is sent, she just has to share this news with someone :: *CSO* Harper to Wright.
(21:36:06) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: moves to the side of the corridor as people pass by :: *AUX* Ah yes, Ensign Morsby. We're currently allowing shore leave onto Vinland, but if you wish to check in with Sickbay, there's a skeleton crew currently assigned. By no means are you required to do so, however, until your first scheduled shift, so you can just settle in if you'd like.
(21:36:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: mutes the playback, with a small smile, anticipating sharing the news coverage with Kate :: *CO* Wright here.
(21:36:53) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: reading a PADD as she eats, quietly listening to the various conversations in the room ::
(21:36:59) AUX_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Understood, Morsby out. ::heads off to sickbay:: ALL:Hey people, let's get to work!
(21:37:50) CO_Capt_Harper: *CSO* :: the excitement in her voice obvious :: I have to show you the message I got from home!
(21:38:47) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Begins singing along with the opera he has chosen to listen to; 'conducting' with his cane.::
(21:38:59) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: continues on, entering the forward lounge, and notices there's quite a few people about despite the availability of Vinland, probably for quick access from those still working the ship ::
(21:39:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sits up, interested and pleased by the cheer in her voice :: *CO* Oh?
(21:40:59) CO_Capt_Harper: *CSO* Yes! Are you in your quarters? May I join you? :: her speech quite fast ::
(21:41:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *CO* I am, and you may, of course. :: hops to her feet and quickly tidies up ::
(21:42:16) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::Sees how empty the room is.:: ALL: Ok, nevermind. I'm going to go explore the ship. You can take care of things here.
(21:42:31) CO_Capt_Harper: *CSO* Be right there! Harper out. :: exits the RR and crosses the bridge ::
(21:42:39) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: What music is that, lieutenant?
(21:43:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is generally a neat person, so there isn't much to tidy, but she tidies things that aren't really messy in that way that tidy people do, and then selects a book and curls up on the couch with it in an attempt to look natural ::
(21:43:57) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Good day Captain. Its an old Klingon opera. The translation of the title loses something...
(21:44:18) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::goes to the lounge and sits down, taking a book from his pocket and plugs in earphones. Reads.::
(21:44:30) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Roughly; The Tales of Woe and Glory.
(21:45:20) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: finds a seat at the bar and orders something syntheholic ::
(21:45:57) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: It is quite nice. You, however, should take a break!
(21:46:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Room: Computer, lights, soft. Shuffle "mood music" playlist, volume low, begin with Ravel's Bolero, followed by Rhapsody in Blue....
(21:46:47) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::Sees XO sit down and waves::
(21:47:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gambles on still having time, jumps up and lights a few candles, back to curled up casually on couch with book ::
(21:47:29) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: It is not something I am comfortable with, my dear captain; not when there are things to be done. ::Smiles.:: Do have a good day.
(21:47:56) CO_Capt_Harper: :: ducks into the turbolift :: ENG: You too, lieutenant. Deck eight!
(21:48:15) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: catches sight of Morsby out of the corner of his eye, does a double-take, and smiles politely in acknowledgement and nods ::
(21:48:32) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Smiles again, as he turns back to his console.:: Self: Oh, the young.
(21:49:03) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::continues to read::
(21:49:41) CO_Capt_Harper: :: the TL arrives and she makes her way to Lexy's door and rings the chime ::
(21:50:29) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: returns to his drink, his smile slipping, and contemplates ::
(21:51:08) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Strolls through the docking platform onto Vinland. Notices a Klingon resturant and books himself a table for dinner that evening. ::
(21:51:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Chime: Come in... :: uses her finger as a bookmark and looks up, tucking her hair behind her ear casually in a way that is totally unplanned and natural, for sure :;
(21:52:07) CO_Capt_Harper: :: bursts into the room with a smile, noting the music and candles ::
(21:53:28) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: wanders into the forward lounge aboard Atlantis and begins looking around at who all is there ::
(21:53:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stands with a smile when Kate enters, laying down the book :: CO: That was fast! Computer: Computer, pause playback.
(21:54:20) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Turns the music off, and saves his work. Decided to take that break the captain advised. Look out over the deserted bridge.:: Atlantis: I shall return soon enough... do not misbehave. ::Enters the TL.::
(21:54:21) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sits down next to her and shows her a PADD with the message on it :: CSO: Would you believe this?!
(21:54:29) CO_Capt_Harper: :: lets her read before starting the video ::
(21:55:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: reads through the message, a smile slowly spreading across her face :: CO: Kate, this is amazing!
(21:56:02) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: The video is even better, these kids, I just - :: presses play and shuts up ::
(21:56:42) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: doesn't see anyone she interacts with much, but the view of within Vinland catches her eyes through the windows, so she walks towards them and gazes out ::
(21:57:28) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Eventually turns up in Ten Forward, swiftly making way to the bar for a drink.::
(21:58:16) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Actually still singing.::
(21:58:29) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks up briefly when her peripheral vision catches sight of the dragon and then returns to her PADD ::
(21:59:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: takes the PADD and watches, her hand rising to cover her mouth and tears springing to her eyes, watching it twice before clearing her throat and looking up at Kate, the idea she had of showing the news coverage no longer necessary :: CO: If THAT doesn't convince you that your actions were correct...
(22:00:09) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I know they were. It helped immensely to clear my head, though, and renew my sense of purpose.
(22:01:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hands the PADD back to Kate :: CO: And a PARADE!
(22:01:53) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I never imagined such a thing!
(22:02:14) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::Closes his eyes and smiles::
(22:02:33) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Orders a glass of the dwindling bottle of Breen Lifegiver.::
(22:02:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: Is largely completely thrilled for Kate, but on a very small level really hopes that the honoree's significant other has no public role to play in a parade ::
(22:03:50) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: And Lexy, did you see their eyes? Especially the look of that precocious blonde girl, the soft-spoken one, with the detailed questions on warp theory?
(22:05:09) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: from the bar, notices Ilaihr's singing and watches him ::
(22:05:11) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: walks into Ten Forward for the evening shift and finds a rather large group of officers and crew there. He makes his way through, patrons getting out of his way as he is here to do something they find quite important ::
(22:05:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: knew exactly which one she spoke of :: CO: I did. I think you may have really empowered children like her, Kate. You're a hero on Risa, and deservedly so.
(22:07:36) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Is still singing that opera and conducting it with his cane.::
(22:07:45) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I hope she grows up to be an engineer like she said she wants to. :: leans back into the couch with a happy sigh :: This makes it all worthwhile.
(22:09:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: mock seriousness :: CO: Now remember, you must only use your powers for good...
(22:09:09) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::is in a really good chapter, and takes a sip of a tea he ordered::
(22:09:36) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: starts serving up drinks and is quickly elbows deep in orders ::
(22:09:46) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sadly looks down at his drink, having had most of it. He told himself he would only have one ::
(22:10:28) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Comes to the end of this song. Tapping his cane on the bar.:: BAR: Good day, Mr Zaxiven.
(22:10:53) CO_Capt_Harper: :: laughs :: CSO: No, I will take over the galaxy with goodwill!
(22:10:58) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: is about to have another spoonful of plomeek broth, but belatedly realizes the bowl is empty. So, she stands and heads for the bar, intending to refill her tea ::
(22:11:29) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: continues pouring liquors without looking, making contact with Ilaihr instead :: ENG: Ah, Lieutenant Ilaihr. Good evening! Care for some Breen Lifegiver?
(22:12:16) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: Indeed, my dear boy. ::Smiles.:: No one else seems to drink it.
(22:12:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pleased to see Kate's mood so dramatically improved :: CO: I'll bet Admiral Jackass is furious with all the goodwill you're getting.
(22:12:59) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::sees everyone at the bar and puts away his book and walks to the bar:: ALL:Hey fellas, how's it going?
(22:13:02) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: ENG: Right away: :: pulls out the bottle and a shotglass and pours :: ENG: Looks like we're running low.
(22:13:26) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Perhaps so. I do not think they will risk taking action against us with this much coverage in the news of our success.
(22:13:55) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: Indeed. And it is not the easiest thing to replenish.
(22:14:09) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: sets her PADD down at the bar :: BAR: Greetings.
(22:14:40) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: already has it put away and is on to other drinks at the well :: ENG: Indeed. I'll get to work on finding some new stock.
(22:14:45) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: notes Morsby's greeting to the bar in general and nods politely, smiling :: AUX: Just fine. Morsby, right? How do you like the ship so far?
(22:14:55) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: Relations with the Breen are not as they were.
(22:15:06) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: How do you want to celebrate your decisive moral victory, my darling? :: gently reaches over and smooths Kate's hair in a tender gesture ::
(22:15:16) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: ENG: Well. I can still get Romulan ale. You just have to know the right workarounds.
(22:16:25) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Smiles, holding his glass to Zaxiven, before drinking.:: BAR: I created some of them. ::Laughs.::
(22:16:54) AUX_Ens_Morsby: XO: Quite well, a fine ship indeed. You know I was a doctor back on Earth? Made applying for Starfleet that much easier, seeing as I didn't need to get training in medecine.
(22:18:31) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: And Starfleet Flag officers were my best clients.
(22:18:47) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: For the ale... anyway.
(22:18:56) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I think that it calls for some celebratory drinks, at the very least, before anything else. :: scritches behind Anna's ears as she sidles in on the conversation ::
(22:19:14) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: is surprised to find the distracting conversation quite welcome :: AUX: I can see how that would make the Academy easier. Your first assignment, right?
(22:20:12) AUX_Ens_Morsby: XO: Yup
(22:20:20) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: SCI: Hello, T'Lira! Good, if rare, to see you here.
(22:20:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Replicator, or lounge? Might just be the two of us eitherway, I'd imagine almost everyone is sampling Vinland's amenities, but there could be a few stragglers.
(22:20:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Or one of Vinlands aforementioned amenities, I suppose. What's your pleasure?
(22:21:12) SCI_Lt_TLira: BAR: It is agreeable to see you as well. May I have a refill of tea, please? :: slides the cup forward slightly ::
(22:21:14) XO_Cdr_Vallero: AUX: Very good, very good. Well, welcome to Atlantis. :: his smile fades slightly in thought as he swirls the dregs of his drink, but it's subtle :: She's quite the ship.
(22:21:44) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: downs the rest of his drink ::
(22:22:27) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Ten-Forward, I think, for now. Atlantis is home, while Vinland seems... otherwise.
(22:23:02) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Smiles as he sits to enjoy his meal, some tastes from his childhood back in the days his father was assigned to Qo'noS. He proceeded to enjoy his Gagh, side of Rokeg Blood Pie and a never ending mug of Warnog. ::
(22:23:20) AUX_Ens_Morsby: XO: Do you have a drinking problem?
(22:23:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods in agreement, then gives Anna some love before standing and looking down at her casual attire :: CO: I wasn't planning to go out, shall I change? Or is this acceptable?
(22:24:04) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: SCI: But of course! :: walks down to the end of the bar where the hot water is and fills a loose-leaf teapot with water and tea leaves before returning with both the pot and her cup :: SCI: Here you go. This is a blend from Maxia Zeta. Right up your alley.
(22:24:25) XO_Cdr_Vallero: AUX: :: frowns, surprised and insulted :: I beg your pardon, Ensign?
(22:24:34) SCI_Lt_TLira: BAR: Thank you. It is very appreciated.
(22:25:35) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Overhear the Commander and the new officer's parlay. Can't help but chuckle as he sips his drink.::
(22:25:57) AUX_Ens_Morsby: XO: I am sorry at the bluntness of the statement. i was observing the way you reacted when drinking, and you seemed almost strained to do it, as if you wanted to stop, but coudn't. I was only trying to help, I'm sorry.
(22:26:03) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: also overhears the conversation and decides to stay out of it ::
(22:26:35) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: You look lovely, of course! :: is still in uniform anyway ::
(22:26:43) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: of course, her ears picked up on the conversation between the first officer and an ensign. A fascinating conversation, but one to steer clear of, so she sips her tea ::
(22:27:39) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: Good day Lieutenant. ::Conversation is a good way to stay out of things.::
(22:27:52) SCI_Lt_TLira: ENG: Greetings, Lieutenant.
(22:28:17) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: How are you this day, my dear?
(22:28:20) XO_Cdr_Vallero: AUX: :: softens his expression, taking into account Morsby seemed to be analyzing him medically, and forces a small smile :: Did I give off that vibe? It wasn't intentional. I'm sure my record will confirm when I say I don't know myself to have a 'drinking problem' though. And besides, it's just synthehol. :: holds up his empty glass as if showing him ::
(22:28:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Well, if you say so! :: slips on a pair of shoes and replicates Anna's meal, setting it on the ground and then meeting Kate at the door :: CO: Ready!
(22:29:06) SCI_Lt_TLira: ENG: I am... well, considering. And you?
(22:29:28) CO_Capt_Harper: :: springs up and joins her, good for another several light-years after that message ::
(22:30:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Nods, respectively.:: SCI: I am glad.
(22:30:42) AUX_Ens_Morsby: XO: I am so sorry, that came out wrong. I had some, problems related to alchohol and now watch out for signs. I don't want something bad to happen because of one drink too many again. I'll excuse myself. ::leaves, and goes back to his cabin, where he lies down, and buries his face in his hands.::
(22:31:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: exits and makes her way to the TL, smiling over at Kate's happy expression ::
(22:32:49) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I bet my parents are, as you say, over the loon. I simply must call them.
(22:33:19) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: finds himself grinning in amusement, was about to call Morsby back, but the Ensign is too quick to leave. Ah well, he just shakes his head :: BAR: Bartender! Another, please. :: clinks his glass to the countertop ::
(22:34:52) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: seems to appear in front of Vallero :: XO: Aye, commander! :: gives him a wink, and by the time he's done winking there is a new glass in front of Vallero and the old one is gone.
(22:35:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Over the MOON, my love. It comes from a time before humans achieved spaceflight and one would be so happy tha.... Ah, that probably doesn't interest you. :: realizes something :: You mean... you haven't spoken to them yet...?
(22:35:25) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: As for myself. I am as well as a man of my extreme can be. ::Smiles.:: However, I dislike being berthed. I find it unsettling.
(22:36:04) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::Lies back on his cot, and looks at his book, the book he wrote, The Alien Physiology, By Doctor Morsby. Smiles. Gets up, puts his book away and goes to the holodeck.::
(22:36:36) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: nods :: ENG: I agree. I find it somewhat odd that we are to be here for more than two or three days without this being official shore leave. Is there a mission they are simply preparing to send us on, perhaps?
(22:36:44) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: :: grins :: No, I only just got the message. I, of course, first replied with a video answering all of their questions and encouraging them, and then, well, I came straight to you to share it.
(22:36:56) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: picks up the glass and sips, telling himself to make this one last, and decides to look for more distractions from the people at the was working quite well ::
(22:37:55) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Shakes his head.:: SCI: I do not believe so. The reasoning unsettles me further.
(22:38:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: bllllllllushes and steps into the TL :: TL: D-Deck 10. :: lets her hair hide her pink cheeks, bites her lip and smiles at her feet. She told me first, me! ::
(22:39:09) CO_Capt_Harper: :: once the doors close, she leans over and steals a kiss, a small one since the ride is only two decks ::
(22:39:17) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks pensive :: ENG: Agreed. However, I have managed to discover thirty-seven ways to not artificially grow plants in a hydroponics bay.
(22:40:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is surprised steam isn't escaping from her ears by the time the doors open ::
(22:40:07) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::enters teh holodeck, and enters a simulation, a mountain range, autumn reching the trees, the chill breeze, and sits down, and did one thing he always did here, he didn't say a single word, just enjoyed the scenery::
(22:40:37) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: I did not realise you have, as the humans say; a green thumb
(22:40:57) CO_Capt_Harper: :: floats out of the TL to Ten Forward ::
(22:41:12) SCI_Lt_TLira: ENG: As I have discovered thirty-seven ways to kill plants, I would say that I do not.
(22:42:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Laughs.:: SCI: It is one of many things I am interested in.
(22:42:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: takes Kate's hand and walks alongside her ::
(22:42:41) SCI_Lt_TLira: ENG: Then perhaps you would have some advice as to how to grow plants instead of kill them?
(22:43:56) CO_Capt_Harper: :: enters Ten Forward and approaches the bar with Lexy ::
(22:44:16) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Smiles his genial smile.:: SCI: My door is always open, should you require advice on anything.
(22:44:31) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: turns her head from the expansive view of their berth and, noticing Wright and Harper having entered Ten Forward, brightens, her ears perking upward ::
(22:44:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: BAR: Margarita rocks, when you get chance? We're celebrating!
(22:44:45) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: One note, is to remember that plants are not as static as commonly believed.
(22:44:52) CO_Capt_Harper: BAR: Two of them, please!
(22:45:01) SCI_Lt_TLira: ENG: Static? What do you mean by that?
(22:45:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :; internally steeling herself for what she's about to do ::
(22:45:37) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: People believe them motionless, static like the landscape.
(22:45:45) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: CO/CSO: Oh? :: looks back and forth between them with his Denobulan smile, never stopping his work, not needing to watch what he's doing to make drinks perfectly :: CO/SCI: And what are we celebrating?
(22:45:47) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: Simple...
(22:45:58) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: notes Harper at the bar with Wright and can't help but feel a bit nervous. Stop it, relax, stupid! ::
(22:46:39) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow :: ENG: Plants are not static. They are complex lifeforms, albeit nonsentient.
(22:46:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ZAX: Decisive moral victory, my good Zaxiven. Decisive moral victory.
(22:47:25) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: Did you know that when under attack, the garden cabbage emits an alarm scent to other plants, to prepare them to defend themselves.
(22:47:50) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: Usually against caterpillars.
(22:47:58) SCI_Lt_TLira: ENG: Really? I was unaware that it would have a conscious reaction to being attacked
(22:48:21) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: Precisely.
(22:48:51) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: lifts a shaker tin in each hand and does the work :: CO/CSO: The best kind of victory! :: pours both simultaneously into the waiting, half-salted glasses and then pushes them to Harper and Wright ::
(22:49:53) CO_Capt_Harper: BAR: Thank you! :: clinks glasses with Lexy, then raises her glass in greeting to Daniel across the bar ::
(22:50:08) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: notices how happy Harper and Wright look, and approaches the bar, curious ::
(22:50:19) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: They are more complex than they appear.
(22:50:37) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::finsishes his meditation and returns to the bar:: CO: Captain, hello.
(22:50:41) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: raises his glass with an automatic smile to Harper, feeling a sting inside ::
(22:51:02) SCI_Lt_TLira: ENG: I will certainly keep that in mind.
(22:51:49) CO_Capt_Harper: AUX: Hello, Ensign... :: can't come up with a name since she doesn't know everyone yet ::
(22:52:06) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Nods at T'lira. Notices the Captain and Wright together, smiling at how happy the look. Finishes his drink.::
(22:52:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives Kate's hand a sqeeze and then pulls over a convenient chair and steps up on top of it, trying to ignore the internal voice asking her what the hell she's doing, and hold her glass in the air :: ALL: A toast! To Captain Harper, from the proud crew of the Atlantis!
(22:52:14) AUX_Ens_Morsby: CO: Morsby, Medical Officer.
(22:52:35) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: notices Morsby's reappearance as Harper turns to him, and finds himself grateful to him for drawing her eye ::
(22:52:42) CO_Capt_Harper: :: turns and looks up in surprise at Lexy, eyes wide ::
(22:53:32) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow, but lifts her cup at Commander Wright's words. ::
(22:53:54) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::lifts his cup, smiling::
(22:54:00) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: joins her voice to those around her who respond to Wright's toast, now close to them and looks between Harper and Morsby, an ensign she doesn't know, still wondering what's going on ::
(22:54:06) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Raises his cane to the good captain.::
(22:54:09) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: still doesn't know the details, but raises a glass and takes a shot ::
(22:55:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ALL: And choosing the path of peace, even when it's hard! :: takes a drink, and steps down, thoroughly embarassed ::
(22:55:26) CO_Capt_Harper: :: hops up and sits on the bar :: ALL: Thank you all, but it is really yourselves you should be toasting. :: raises her own glass and joins the drinking ::
(22:55:37) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: quietly drinks to Wright's toast ::
(22:55:51) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: Do not hesitate to ask, should you require anything else lieutenant.
(22:56:16) SCI_Lt_TLira: ENG: I will certainly keep that in mind, Lieutenant.
(22:56:46) AUX_Ens_Morsby: ::drinks his tea::
(22:56:46) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: CSO/CO: What's the occasion? BAR: I need a drink, I think?
(22:57:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: notes the raised glasses all around her and is less embarassed -- slightly -- but reaches up and clinks her glass against Kate's ::
(22:57:09) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Decides, that he should get back to work, hops up, and slowly plods off to the bridge in his tripedal fashion.::
(22:57:23) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: SEC: Sure. What would you like?
(22:57:46) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: continues to sit at the bar, listening to the various conversations around her in her usual fashion and sipping her tea ::
(22:57:58) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: BAR: Uh...rum? Something fruity?
(22:58:07) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: checks with Wright ::
(22:58:21) CO_Capt_Harper: :: whispers a thanks to Lexy as she leans warmly against her ::
(22:58:23) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Finishes his meal and chugs down his warnog. ::
(22:58:54) Bar_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: thinks for half a second :: SEC: You got it! :: sets a Mai Tai laced with chocolate in front of Kuari a moment later ::
(22:59:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods at Kuari :: CO: :: quietly :: I'm proud of my captain, and not just because I love her.
(22:59:19) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: grins and takes her drink, raising it towards Harper, still unclear as to what they're celebrating other than Harper's awesomeness ::
