(21:25:36) CaptHarper: BEGIN PARTY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ATLANTIS! :toot:
(21:28:30) CaptHarper: Ryne> :: folds her hands together as people file in to the colony's expansive garden clearing and the music starts ::
(21:29:11) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: she immediately makes her way to Amber Sun :: ~Amber Sun: Eyyy!~
(21:29:59) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: beams from Atlantis in his civilain wear. It's not terribly different from his uniform. All black. ::
(21:31:14) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: arrives at the event location sans uniform, taking a deep break and attempting to shift her mind from the intense concentration of battle towards celebration. After all, that's what these were events are meant to do ::
(21:31:43) CaptHarper: Syvek> :: hasn't left the colony since the battles here, and is enjoying a tea in a quiet corner, pleased that his defense of the place enabled this ::
(21:32:33) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: walks into the clearing with Kate wearing skinny jeans, low-heeled boots, and a short-sleeved belted linen tunic, her hair piled into a loose knot at the back of her head ::
(21:33:17) AmberSun: ::Grumbles in bear, as he looks around.:: SCI: Heeeeellloooo. ::Waves.::
(21:33:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: strolling through the gardens by herself ::
(21:34:11) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: wears a powder-blue sun dress with a futuristic asymetric grey band that wraps through the center, silver shoes, a geometric-patterned black-and-white shawl around her shoulders, and her hair half up, half down. ::
(21:35:26) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: has showed up in uniform, finding a spot out of the way of everything and everyone, simply observing ::
(21:36:03) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: shamelessly heads for the bar first ::
(21:36:16) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: squees slightly :: ~Amber Sun: How do you like Atlantis so far?~
(21:36:53) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::wanders through the party in some kind of comfy flowy outfit with sandals, heading for the bar::
(21:37:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: is wearing a sleeveless but long, flowing dress with a sunflower print and a big sun hat ::
(21:38:15) AmberSun: SCI: It is strRRRange placcce. But enjoy. Am curious of how it flies without wings.
(21:39:38) CaptHarper: :: walking hand-in-hand with Lexy, wearing an off-the-shoulder billowy white top and a floral-print skirt, her hair down from its usual captainly updo ::
(21:39:59) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: tunes in to the upbeat tempo of the music and smiles, swaying a bit and smiling. She tells herself she can finally relax. There was a time it seemed much easier to do, transitioning from work to play, but her responsibilities now were greater, the weight heavier. She knew she could remember how, she just had to make it happen ::
(21:40:12) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: smiling and commenting to Kate about the beautiful weather ::
(21:40:20) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: shows up in a delicately-flowing blue and white gradient dress and hair pulled back into an elegant crown-braid, arm-in-arm with Ethan, approaching Linxi and Amber Sun. :: SCI/Amber: Enjoying the party so far?
(21:41:33) CaptHarper: :: takes in a deep breath of fresh air, appreciating the light breeze as she agrees with Lexy ::
(21:41:41) AmberSun: ::Tilts his head. Waving at Grey and addressing her as he has made his custom, then looks confused.:: TAC2: What are party?
(21:42:33) CaptHarper: Syvek> :: finishes his tea and makes his way to the bar to order another ::
(21:42:59) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: sits at the bar sipping her drink, she waves and smiles as Tailor approaches. ::
(21:43:01) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: exhales loudly :: ~Amber Sun: I would explain it to you, but it would probably take me five months to do so.~ TAC2: Oh hey. ~Amber Sun: Well, by definition it is an entertaining social gathering.~
(21:43:18) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Ethan> :: leans in to kiss his wife's cheek before excusing himself to retrieve a drink for the two of them ::
(21:43:29) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: is not usually dressed in such a feminine fashion, but thought she'd try it for a change. She banishes feelings of self-consciousness as she leans down to smell flowers ::
(21:45:13) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: grins slightly at Linxi and Amber. :: SCI/Amber: Have you met Ethan yet? I think you'll like him... he can talk science and engineering with you all night long.
(21:45:20) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::sits down at the bar and orders a mojito to start with, looks around at the scenery. Not working tonight is a refreshing change of pace::
(21:46:02) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: heads to the bar like many are, looking for that chocolate sweet drink to treat herself and get her in a festive mood ::
(21:46:51) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Appears in his anthropomorphic form, with a number of other Ursine accompanying him; many females and cubs. Lifts his arms, and they all disperse into the colony.::
(21:46:55) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: making his way to the bar, dressed in black slacks, shoes, and a silver-threaded dark grey deep V-neck shirt ::
(21:47:32) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Ethan> :: grins at Tailor and Acacia, gathering up the drinks for himself and Ryleigh before approaching the two. :: CMO: Enjoying yourself?
(21:47:56) AmberSun: ::Doesn't know what engineering is, but know that science is the magic of the ungifted.::
(21:48:29) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: What would you like to do first?
(21:49:41) AmberSun: ::Makes a strange and deep whinnying noise, before propping up on the bar and sniffing.::
(21:50:16) CaptHarper: :: she surveys the garden clearing for a moment before answering :: CSO: Drinks and introductions at the bar, and then... dance with me? :: smiles hopefully ::
(21:50:22) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Ethan> :: huffs in slight surprise at the sudden bear-appearance. :: Amber Sun: Amber! Paws OFF the bar!
(21:50:26) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: smiles back at Ethan, before turning to look at Amber Sun. ::
(21:50:39) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: takes her drink and empties half of it immediately, smiles at the taste, then bounces a bit towards people standing around talking, looking around at who is all there ::
(21:51:33) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks around the party, seeing that there's already plenty of people here :: CO: ... Sure, okay. :: smiles and follows her to the bar ::
(21:51:35) SCI_LtJG_Jude: ~Amber Sun: I wouldn't drink anything from there except water, if I were you.~
(21:51:44) AmberSun: ::Roars, his mouth opening as wide as a human head.:: Ethan: What is bar?
(21:52:08) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: giggles, sliding her glass across the bar to get it refilled. ::
(21:52:38) CaptHarper: :: arrives at the bar with a bright grin :: All: Hi everyone!
(21:53:13) AmberSun: ::A pair of cubs proceed to climb up its leg and back, letting our tiny little roars, that sounded like quacks.::
(21:54:36) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks at Ethan and Grey :: ~Amber Sun: Uh. Well, here, a bar is generally a counter at which synthahol beverages are served.~
(21:54:48) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: doesn't get far from the bar :: CO/CSO: Hi!
(21:55:04) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: greets the doctors warmly as they arrive at the bar, and Kuari as well ::
(21:55:35) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: also greets Tailor and Acacia ::
(21:55:36) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Walks like some kind of titan, approaches the many starfleet officers; leaning over the bar and sniffing at the various coloured liquids.::
(21:55:44) CaptHarper: Syvek> :: pauses on his way to the bar to have a conversation with Ryne, who he has befriended in his time here ::
(21:56:00) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Ethan> :: chuckles slightly at the cubs, eyes glancing to the captain :: CO: Hey, Captain! :: glances at his side as Ryleigh sweeps towards him, leaning into his side calmly to steal a sip of his drink ::
(21:56:18) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks at the cubs and awws ::
(21:56:39) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: greets everyone back, getting a little dizzy. At the end she still ends up watching the cubs, grinning. ::
(21:56:49) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::chuckles at the bear:: Ethan: Yes, thank you.
(21:57:28) CaptHarper: :: pleased to see everyone here, together, and having a good time ::
(21:58:04) CaptHarper: Colonel Jaire> :: is also around, mingling with bears and Starfleet alike ::
(21:58:21) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: also greets Navarro :: NAV: :: low whistle :: Looking good, Doc!
(21:58:49) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: sniffs the cubs, carefully so she's not smacked by a large bear paw ::
(21:59:43) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: smiles at the cubs as she leaned into her husband, drink in hand :: Ethan: Too bad Solandis couldn't come. She would love this.
(22:00:08) AmberSun: ::Look over a the giant furry lizard, curious, then sniffs her back.::
(22:00:41) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: as he arrives at the bar, he smiles in response to Wright :: CSO: Gracias, comandante. You are too kind, and lovely yourself, if I may.
(22:01:08) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: ends up nose to nose with Amber Sun, eyes wide taking in the bear curiously ::
(22:01:09) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: blushes at Navarro in an "oh, you!" sort of way ::
(22:01:30) CaptHarper: :: grins at Navarro, the charmer ::
(22:02:29) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Lifts up a big bottle of blue liquid, and translocates it to his oversize paw. Bites the top of the bottle off, chewing it with dissatisfaction, before lapping at the liquid.::
(22:02:41) AmberSun: XO: HeellllllOOOOOOo
(22:03:08) AmberSun: ::Pants happily like a dog.::
(22:03:50) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: tries to slap it out of his hands :: NO!
(22:03:50) CaptHarper: :: can't stop herself from watching Kuari and Amber Sun right now ::
(22:04:11) AmberSun: <Bear Cub> ::Jumps onto Kuari's snout, and roars triumphantly.::
(22:04:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: wandering back through the garden toward the bar ::
(22:05:12) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: blinks, also transfixed by the bear nonsense ::
(22:05:49) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Amber Sun: Don't drink anything for goodness sake! I don't know how your bear body will handle it!
(22:07:07) AmberSun: <Neme> ::In a reverberate tone.:: AmberSun: Fermented fruit water
(22:07:31) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: watching the scene as he orders a Kalimotxo ::
(22:07:49) AmberSun: ::Is too fascinated by Kuari, and the cubs.::
(22:08:17) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: grins, loudly responding in as deep a voice as she can muster :: AmberSun: Helllllooooooo.
(22:09:37) AmberSun: ::Laughs, with a toothy grin.::
(22:09:43) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: blinks at Neme in surprise and grins at the cubs playing on Kuari
(22:10:07) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Eats the rest of the bottle.::
(22:10:08) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: sees something more unlikely than the Rucara-bear interaction - Suzuki in a dress ::
(22:11:11) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: is surprised by the cub and lowers her head so the heavy cub won't fall off or scrape her too badly trying to stay on, still smiling. She paws roughly at the cub, inviting it to play ::
(22:11:37) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Spits out the bottle, now empty of liquid.:: Ethan: The kernal was too metallic, but fruit water was nice.
(22:11:45) CaptHarper: :: grabs a nearby holoimager and takes pictures of Kuari and the bear cub! ::
(22:12:03) SCI_LtJG_Jude: ~Amber Sun: Uhh, maybe we could focus on something more bear appropriate than a bar?~
(22:12:28) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Ethan> ::sighs at the larger bear. :: Neme: You... will end up drunk if you drink anymore, sir.
(22:13:24) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Has a laugh that shakes the whole bar.::
(22:13:40) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: takes out her tricorder (because of course she has pockets) and starts idly looking up whether bears can get synthehol poisoning ::
(22:13:41) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: has no idea where her chocolate drink went ::
(22:13:44) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: approaches the bar, notices Navarro looking all sharp, and is about to say something but pauses to look at the sources of that laugh ::
(22:14:26) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Ethan> :: chuckles and kisses Ryleigh suddenly before straightening to look at the laughing bear ::
(22:15:02) AmberSun: <Bear cub> ::Play fights, from the exposed belly position, seeming to laugh.::
(22:15:16) CaptHarper: :: still taking pictures, the cuteness off the scale ::
(22:16:04) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: laughing at the interaction between Kuari and the cub ::
(22:16:48) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: leans against Amber Sun as she watches Kuari and the cub ::
(22:17:04) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: squeaks at the sudden kiss, blushing deeply as her attention turns to Kuari and the cub :: Ethan: No, sir!
(22:17:29) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: would normally flip over herself to play with the cub, but her fear of a large bear not used to Rucara stepping on and breaking a wing dissuades her, and she continues to bat playfully at the cub, trying to find its tickle spots ::
(22:18:23) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Suzuki: My eyes must be deceiving me, but I think I see Jester in a dress.
(22:18:33) AmberSun: XO: That one is Snow Leaf. ::Noting the cub Kuari is playing with.:: And this one is Azure Light. :: The cub on his shoulder.:: They are too young to have earned their titles yet.
(22:19:42) CaptHarper: :: just changes the camera to record instead of taking stills ::
(22:20:35) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks to the cubs in turn, learning their names :: AmberSun: May they grow to be strong and brave!
(22:20:50) AmberSun: <Neme> Ethan: Honey? ::Leans in close, looking into the human's eyes, before looking sad.:: You dont have any.
(22:21:11) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> NAV: Well, well, well. You're looking mighty fancy yourself, Zorro.
(22:21:39) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Makes a racket as he is tickled by the dragon lady.::
(22:22:17) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Suzuki: Gracias. What can I say, we pilots clean up nice, sí?
(22:23:15) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: reaches around Amber Sun's shoulder to Azure Light ::
(22:23:15) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: turns to Azure Light, poking at it with her nose ::
(22:23:35) AmberSun: <AzureLight> ::Bites Amber Sun's ear.::
(22:23:51) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Ethan> :: cocks his head to the side slightly, eyes fixed on Neme. :: Neme: What do you mean? Ryleigh and I have been together since eighth grade, if that's what your asking.
(22:24:11) AmberSun: ::Falls to the floor, wailing in pain.:: AzureLight: Am defeated.::
(22:24:32) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::finishes her mojito and sets her glass on the bar, smiling in amusement at the bear cubs playing with Kuari::
(22:25:05) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks at the conversation between the great bear and Mr. Ryleigh in confusion ::
(22:25:38) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: backs up as AmberSun dramatically falls, then finds Snow Leaf climbing the tip of her tail ::
(22:25:39) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Grumbles.:: Ethan: Do not understand. You do have honey? Your mind says you do not.
(22:25:43) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: stumbles back as Amber Sun falls to the ground ::
(22:27:27) AmberSun: <AzureLight> ::Scrambles onto Amber Sun's stomach, and sits down.:: All: WiiiiIiiiiiiiIIIIn. ::Sound like a loud mewing than a roar.::
(22:28:00) CaptHarper: :: laughs and awwwwwws ::
(22:28:01) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: pats her husband's shoulder slightly :: Ethan: I think... he means. :: offers a small jar of honey to the large bear, shrugging at Ethan's look :: Ethan: What? I always have some on me.
(22:28:20) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Chews on the tail.::
(22:29:30) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Lights up, and goes to eat it, before noting the container.:: TAC2: Do not eat?
(22:30:14) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: flicks her tail in surprise, but not enough to really budge the heavy cub, still trying to watch Azure Light, but eventually turns to grab Snow Leaf's scruff in her front teeth to pull the cub off her tail ::
(22:30:46) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Neme: You can eat it, I just have a mix of herbs and natural remedies always on me because my friends are idiots :: shrugs and chuckles at Ethan's offended expression ::
(22:31:28) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Resists, flailing side to size.::
(22:32:30) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Taps the container.:: TAC2: But do not eat?
(22:32:58) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: sips the margarita that finally appears ::
(22:33:18) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: reaches to grab a large bowl, taking the container to dump the honey into and offer it back to Neme :: Neme: here you go
(22:34:15) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Attempts a more human smile, but only serves to show off how large his teeth really are. Then laps at the honey.::
(22:34:21) CaptHarper: :: realizes that a margarita also appeared for her, having forgotten about it in all of the bear antics :
(22:34:43) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: mightily lifts the bear cub in her teeth, dropping her tail limp in hopes of dissuading the bear's climbing instinct and prompting it to let go ::
(22:35:15) AmberSun: ::Spreads out his body, and gets comfortable on the floor as Azure Light begins bouncing on his stomach, trying to jump up to Kuari.::
(22:35:41) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: gets down on her knees and play-growls at Snow Leaf ::
(22:36:06) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> NAV: These are your dancing clothes...?
(22:36:36) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Growls, before opening its mouth to raw, and falling to the floor.::
(22:37:08) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: realizes she's just playing with her tricorder at a party and slowly puts it away, sipping her drink and watching Kuari play with the cub. ::
(22:37:47) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: nods :: Suzuki: Sí. I taught a Kvolir lady how to samba a little while ago, and she taught me one of their dances, as well. :: grins ::
(22:38:11) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Grrrrawrrh! :: bats at the cub with her hand ::
(22:38:30) CaptHarper: :: sips at her margarita, gratified to see everyone getting along so well ::
(22:39:31) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> NAV: Flying Mustangs is a bit like dancing. I can see that the skillset transfers well for you. :: nodding seriously ::
(22:39:45) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Looks up from his bowl of honey. Before trotting over to Wright and Harper.:: CO/CSO: GrrRrRrReeetings.
(22:40:34) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks up at the great bear, filled with a bit of awe :: Neme: G-Greetings, Neme.
(22:40:41) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: gently sets Snow Leaf down, letting Jude play with it ::
(22:40:50) CaptHarper: :: stands and looks up at the great bear with a smile :: Greetings O Great Neme.
(22:41:37) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Rolls on its back, batting its four paws at Jude.:: XO: Nice lizard.
(22:41:51) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Suzuki: Indeed, but the Mustang is my dance partner, not the enemy pilot.
(22:42:15) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Nods.:: CO/CSO: It is good to have you return to our world.
(22:42:25) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: blinks, suprised to hear Snow Leaf speak to her ::
(22:42:33) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: perks a brow at this :: NAV: Oh? Interesting, I hadn't thought of it like that.
(22:43:05) AmberSun: <AzureLight> ::Keeps bouncing.:: XO: Can fly?
(22:43:11) CaptHarper: Neme: It is good to be here, and to see our peoples enjoying the evening together.
(22:43:20) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: nods in agreement with Kate ::
(22:44:26) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Snow Leaf: Have you played... hide and seek?
(22:44:55) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: turns from Snow Leaf to Azure Light, watching the latter bounce and grins, bobbing up and down herself with the cub and opening her wings ::
(22:45:37) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Covers eyes with its paws.:: SCI: Cha... Gra... Laa... reek... sinai...
(22:46:22) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Neme: This is a beautiful world.
(22:46:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Suzuki: When pilot and plane are responding to each other in perfect harmony, it is a thing of beauty, much like the dance.
(22:46:55) CaptHarper: :: has flipped into diplomat mode, since she's two out of three on this planet, at least ::
(22:47:19) AmberSun: <AzureLight> ::Falls over, and looks in awe.:: XO: Pretty....
(22:47:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> NAV: I always thought of Shinigami as kind of an extension of my body, rather than a partner. :: frowns in thought ::
(22:48:18) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Self: Why am I always the one hiding first? :: runs off and tries to find a tree with branches to jump up on ::
(22:48:33) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Suzuki: Each Mustang is different, like each dance partner. Embarrassingly, I have lately been... out of sync with mine.
(22:49:24) AmberSun: <Neme> CO: It is our garden. And we tend to it.
(22:49:37) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: doesn't want to fly away, but flaps twice to lift off, then drops back to the ground ::
(22:50:10) CaptHarper: Neme: It is lovely, and we are grateful to be allowed to share it with you.
(22:50:10) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> AmberSun: Uhhhh, what after glom?
(22:50:14) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: pauses to think, and then nods :: NAV: That makes sense. I suppose I think of it more like a weapon, which becomes part of me.
(22:50:25) AmberSun: SnowLeaf: Vill.
(22:50:46) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: chuckles :: Suzuki: I can't say that surprises me, Jester.
(22:51:12) AmberSun: <Snowleaf> SCI: ...Vill, Fwen!!! ::Makes a roar.:: Will find!
(22:51:15) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Neme: I am glad we were able to make peace with your people.
(22:51:36) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: again quirks her brow at Navarro :: NAV: Oh? Why is that?
(22:51:36) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Self: Shit! :: scrambles up a tree into the branches ::
(22:53:31) AmberSun: <Neme> CO: And with the Eduda's assistance, we are coming to understand your own. ::Looks to Amber Sun.:: It is hoped you can teach him, so one day, he may teach us.
(22:53:41) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Suzuki: For the same reason I was surprised to see you here in a dress. :: still chuckling ::
(22:54:05) CaptHarper: Neme: Amber Sun teaches us, as well.
(22:55:35) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Follows its nose, zigzaging around sniffing the ground, lifting its head up to smell the air.::
(22:55:35) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: folds her arms and raises both eyebrows at Navarro ::
(22:56:14) AmberSun: <Neme> CO: That is why his new title. Chasing Celestial Trails.
(22:57:59) TAC2_1LT_Grey: Neme: New title? :: echoes curiously, eyes looking to the giant bear ::
(22:58:16) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Suzuki: Note that I was only surprised to see you wearing it, but not to see that you look enchanting in it. After all, even a beautifully-polished sword is still deadly, no?
(22:58:39) AmberSun: TAC2: After the age of changing, we all are given titles as well as names.
(22:59:01) CaptHarper: :: smiles :: Neme: I like that. It is what we do on Atlantis, I think.
(22:59:49) AmberSun: TAC2: Before I was Neme... I was River Walker, Waterfall Of Lotus.
(23:00:02) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: cannot help but flash Navarro a quick but wicked smile before carefully returning her expression back to neutral ::
(23:02:44) CaptHarper: :: eyes the dance floor, then her wife ::
(23:02:49) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: turns to watch after where Snow Leaf went ::
(23:03:38) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: nods in understanding as Ethan tugs her towards the dance floor :: Neme: Ah, I understand. Excuse me. :: lets Ethan pull her to the dance floor, easily falling into the rythmn of the music playing ::
(23:03:40) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> Self: Where is? ::Sniffs around a tree.:: Where is?
(23:05:24) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Smiles, before looking down at Amber Sun. Says something in their native tongue.::
(23:06:43) AmberSun: ::Laughs, before flopping over, and discarding Azure Light onto the floor, unceremoniously.:j
(23:07:30) AmberSun: <AzureLight> ::Beings to cry out.::
(23:07:46) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: is on the dance floor with Ethan, spinning about elegantly while in the middle of a quiet conversation ::
(23:07:46) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: listens to Neme's unfamiliar words to Amber Sun, and watches Azure light tumble ::
(23:08:03) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: grins and drifts away with his Kalimotxo, finding his way over to Acacia ::
(23:08:17) CaptHarper: Neme: Our people like to dance! You should try it. :: gestures to the dancing ::
(23:08:26) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks down, but her shift in balance breaks one of the branches she is hanging onto, and it falls ::
(23:08:39) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: glances from the bears to Navarro, offering a smile ::
(23:09:02) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Whisks the cub into the air, and into its giant paw; licking it's forehead.:: AzureLight: It is alright young one.
(23:09:41) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Looks up.:: SCI: I find you!
(23:10:29) AmberSun: ::Looks to the dancefloor, then to the dragon lady.:: XO: Do dance?
(23:11:08) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: nods, then begins to boogie to the music in demonstration ::
(23:11:13) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: laughs brightly at Ethan's quiet words, blushing as he led her into a delicate dip and the two continued their dancing ::
(23:11:50) AmberSun: ::Watches for a moment, before attempting to replicate Kuari.::
(23:12:00) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Snow Leaf: Oh shoot! So you did! :: slides down side of the tree :: Snow Leaf: Your turn. :: turns towards tree and shuts eyes :: One. Two. Three-
(23:12:01) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: returns the smile :: MED: Buenas noches, doctora. You are looking lovely tonight.
(23:12:30) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: grins at Amber Sun, then does a slower version of her dance, something a heavier being could do ::
(23:12:54) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Sprints off, using its small size to hide amongst the crowd.::
(23:13:09) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: grins, sipping her drink :: NAV: As do you. Enjoying the party?
(23:13:20) AmberSun: ::Copies Kuari, and laughs.::
(23:13:43) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: trots over to the dance floor where there's more room ::
(23:13:53) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: MED: Very much so. I taught a Kvolir to samba, and learned a new dance in return.
(23:14:00) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: internally smiles slyly at Navarro and Acacia before wrangling herself a drink ::
(23:14:57) CaptHarper: :: grins at Lexy and takes her hand, then glances over at the dance floor ::
(23:15:07) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: bobs her head :: NAV: Meanwhile I think the science says.. synthehol won't kill bears. :: she looks at the bear on the dancefloor, shaking her head slightly ::
(23:15:16) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: sets her drink down and allows herself to be led to the dance floor, smiling ::
(23:15:18) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Places the cub on the floor.:: AzureLight: Seek out your mother. She is with the other offworlders.::
(23:16:13) AmberSun: <AzureLight> ::Rubs its eyes with it's paws.:: Neme: Will find, Neme. ::Quickly trots off.::
(23:16:28) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: chuckles :: MED: That... is good to know. I would hate to poison our new friends!
(23:17:00) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: sways on all fours like a fish, head to tail ::
(23:17:33) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Eight. Nine. Ten! :: yells out :: Ready or not, here I come! :: goes around, looking for the cub ::
(23:17:48) AmberSun: ::Lets out a grumbling chuckle, finding the winged lizard's movements amusing.::
(23:18:10) CaptHarper: :: wraps her arms around Lexy's back as they find the dance ::
(23:18:55) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: puts her arms behind Kate's neck, smiling up at the sunlight in the trees ::
(23:19:58) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Begins to seemingly converse with itself, in its own tongue, turning his head to address no one.::
(23:20:00) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: smiles, sipping her drink. There's a pause as she can't think of anything to say for a moment. :: NAV: It's nice to see people getting along with the bears.
(23:21:32) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: giggles and ducks away from Ethan, dodging through the crowd and coming to a skidding halt next to Acacia and Navarro :: MED/NAV: Hide me!
(23:22:17) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: blinks, startled for a moment before suddenly jumping to her feet, sliding to stand between Riley and the direction she came from, still looking a bit puzzled :: TAC2: Er.. are you okay?
(23:22:34) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Can smell Jude nearby, so tries to keep very still.::
(23:22:36) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: starts to answer, but is startled by Grey, and also stands ::
(23:22:57) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: looks to see what she's running from ::
(23:23:36) CaptHarper: :: pulls Lexy close, taking the time to just be in the moment with her, and only her, as difficult as it has been to find time to do that lately ::
(23:23:42) TAC2_1LT_Grey: NAV/MED: Ethan was trying to get a tickle in. :: breathes brightly and squeaks slightly, eyes fixed on the two ::
(23:24:02) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: laughs :: TAC2: Tickle him back. The best defense is a good offense.
(23:24:05) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: relaxes, rolling her eyes and chuckling :: TAC2/NAV: Ah.. gotcha.
(23:24:21) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: nods, pointing at Navarro like 'that' ::
(23:26:25) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: lays her head on Kate's shoulder, surrendering to the moment ::
(23:27:03) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: changes her dance with the next song, bobbing her head up and down on her long neck like a dancing cockatoo, occasionally dropping to the floor and spreading her wings before popping back up and bobbing her head again ::
(23:27:08) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Come out, come out. Where is the cub hiding, eh? :: wanders into the crowd, scanning the ground ::
(23:28:10) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: sipping a strawberry daquiri, watching the hide and seek ::
(23:28:24) CaptHarper: :: once the song ends, she pulls back from Lexy, still holding both of her hands :: CSO: I need to do the toast, but I want to dance with you some more.
(23:28:42) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Keeps very still and quiet, watches Jude as she gets closer; using a person's foot a cover.::
(23:29:35) AmberSun: ::Cannot really replicate the wing movements, but does bob his head and neck, and stands up on his hind legs to wave his paws in the air.::
(23:30:29) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: nods at Kate, willing to wait for the ceremonial part of this ::
(23:31:16) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: tries AmberSun's dance, standing and waving ::
(23:31:18) CaptHarper: :: heads back to the bar, not letting go of one of Lexy's hands, and finds her drink ::
(23:31:36) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: follows along after, being pulled by the hand, giggling ::
(23:31:52) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: speaks in singsong :: I'm gonna getchuuuu! :: keeps looking for the cub ::
(23:33:07) CaptHarper: :: raises her margarita and changes her tone to Captain for a second :: Everyone! Just a moment, if you will indulge me.
(23:33:30) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: leans into Ethan, wrapping his arms around herself as they turn their eyes to the Captain ::
(23:33:41) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Wiggles, in anticipation of being found.:j
(23:33:45) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: stops dancing to watch Harper...mostly ::
(23:34:01) CaptHarper: It is heartwarming to see all of us gathered here, new friends and old, having such a wonderful time together.
(23:34:12) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: looks to Harper, leaning back against the bar ::
(23:34:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: quickly gets her drink refreshed ::
(23:34:25) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: listens to la capitana ::
(23:34:35) CaptHarper: I find it to be a good reminder of why we are out here in the first place, doing what we do.
(23:34:48) AmberSun: ::Looks around, and falls on its bum; not use to bipedalism.::
(23:35:49) CaptHarper: So, let us all wish Atlantis, our home and keeper of our family, a happy twenty-second birthday! May she sail the boundless sea for decades to come!
(23:36:02) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: finds the wiggling cub and lifts its up gleefully, turning to face the captain :: WOO!
(23:36:09) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Watches the captain speak.::
(23:36:23) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: quietly :: Hear, hear! :: raises drink ::
(23:36:24) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: hoots and bellows loudly in celebratory agreement ::
(23:36:36) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: whoops :: ALL: Here here!
(23:36:44) AmberSun: <SnowLeaf> ::Squirms in Jude's hand, roaring and squealing.::
(23:37:04) CaptHarper: :: grins and finishes her drink :: Party until the wee hours! You have earned it!
(23:37:11) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: cheers ::
(23:37:30) AmberSun: <Neme> ::Let out a booming roar into the sky.::
(23:37:45) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: cheers loudly at the end of the Captain's speech ::
(23:37:59) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: echoes Neme's roar, not as loudly or low-pitched ::
(23:38:20) CaptHarper: Ryne> :: smiles and claps ::
(23:38:28) CaptHarper: Syvek> :: nods approvingly ::
(23:38:28) AmberSun: ::Joins in the chorus.::
(23:38:46) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: silently raises her drink in respect ::
(23:38:53) AmberSun: ::All the bears let out a roar in unison, even the cubs.::
(23:40:17) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::raises her glass::
(23:40:30) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: turns to Acacia with a smile, after all, the Captain said to party :: MED: Would you care to dance, doctora?
(23:40:48) CaptHarper: :: smiles contentedly ::
(23:41:32) CaptHarper: ACTION> The music restarts after the cheering dies down, and the party continues into the wee hours...
(23:42:22) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: she lays on her back on the ground, initiating play wrestling with Snow Leaf ::
(23:42:45) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: returns his smile and takes his hand, heading for the dancefloor :: NAV: I'd love to.
(23:44:04) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks at Kate expectantly ::
(23:44:54) CaptHarper: :: breaks out into a grin and pulls Lexy back to the dancefloor, finding a way to be alone with her in the crowd ::
