Lost Harbor
Rise and shine on the morning of the sixth day! Hopefully, everyone found a place to sleep — the big bed was first come, first serve for as many that wanted to pile in, along with two smaller beds in the children’s room and various couches and chairs in the living room. As we wake up, we must first attend to the day’s business of survival, then determine how to approach solving the mystery of this place.

CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:15:55
:: wakes up sitting on the master bed, leaning against the headboard with a crick in her neck and Lexy in her arms; Lexy had fallen asleep while she was brushing five days of survival out of her wife's hair, and she couldn't bring herself to wake her and move to a more comfortable position ::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:17:06
:: cracks open her eyes, tightly bundled in a blanket on one of the couches. She begins working up the will to move. ::

MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:22:17
:: cuddles up closer to Navarro for warmth, resenting the morning cold ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:22:34

CMO Lt Tailor 29-Jan-2020 21:23:21

CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 21:24:03
:: stirs when Kate shifts, still mostly asleep, and mumbles drowsily :: Kate... :: blinks and slowly becomes aware of her strange surroundings, then suddenly sits up, immediately alert and looking around :: Kate?!
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:24:39
:: squeezes Lexy in her arms :: CSO: I am here, my love. Good morning!
NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 21:25:33

CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 21:27:10
::Grabs his stick and gets to his feet, stretching, having no shame at his continued nakedity; before he starts to wisp through the mist, patrolling the area around the house.::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:27:25
:: smiles :: CSO: No, it was not a dream... nor was all of the rest of this. But at least we are together again.

NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 21:29:14
MED: We might, but I don't know if there's enough now that we are so many.
SCI LtJG Jude 29-Jan-2020 21:29:55
:: groans as she unravels herself from the blanket, and puts Ilaihr's robe on herself, and walks outside to grab her shirt that she cleaned last night ::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:29:58
:: nods thoughtfully :: NAV: We'll have to fish before lunch time.
NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 21:30:32

CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 21:30:39
:: turned an overly-long tunic into an awkwardly-fitting dress, but fell asleep before washing her clothes :: CO: I suppose we should get up. There's a lot to do today.
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:31:18
:: smiles warmly, wiping her tired eyes :: NAV: Oh, that would be perfect. Perhaps we'll have to tame the local bears or something.

:: remains fast asleep, curled in her chair ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:32:28
:: stretches, cracking her back and getting the blood moving :: CSO: Indeed there is.
NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 21:32:54
MED: Ah, yes, we could use a bear around here...
SCI LtJG Jude 29-Jan-2020 21:33:21
:: pulls the robe off, then slips on her own now clean shirt. she spots Ilaihr in the distance, and shrugs, before going back inside. she then places his robe on the back of a chair ::

:: opens her eyes and groggily raises her head ::
CMO Lt Tailor 29-Jan-2020 21:33:57
::voices begin to drift into the bedroom she's in, inserting themselves into her dreams, along with a very rhythmic, annoying bird cry that's coming from somewhere outside the ship. And why are all of these people standing in her bedrooom talking? And for some reason there's a horse, or is it a bear... ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 21:34:14
::Senses the others in the house awakening, and starts throat singing to herald in the morning.::

:: wonders if Amber Sun is here somewhere ::

:: untangles herself from Kate and stretches :: XO: Oh, good morning! :: stifles a yawn ::
XO Cdr Kuari 29-Jan-2020 21:36:06
:: smiles at them both, reminded that they are all together now, then is distracted by the muffled sound of Ilaihr singing outside ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:37:07
XO: You did not have to sleep on the floor, you know. The bed has room!
NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 21:37:34
:: stands and stretches ::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:38:16
:: wears the blanket as a cape and heads to the kitchen to put out anything that might have been left over from the night before ::

XO Cdr Kuari 29-Jan-2020 21:39:26
:: recognizes Ilaihr's voice, somehow, and it comforts her that he's just let her know he's all right out there. She turns her attention to Harper and Wright, standing and stretching cat-like :: CO/CSO: I'm just fine on the floor, really. It's nice to be warm and not be outside, though, with sturdy protective walls around us!
CMO Lt Tailor 29-Jan-2020 21:39:27
::stretches her legs out in her sleep, hitting the end of the bed and subsquently shoving her head into the headboard:: Self: Ow.. ::opens her eyes, remembering where she is. The bird's chirping has turned into some strange singing noise coming from outside, which she isn't sure isn't left over from her dream... ::
CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 21:39:51
:: stands and gathers up her dirty clothes :: Both: Sounds like at least some of the others are awake. We should have a group meeting and decide on priorities and tasks for the day.
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:40:41
XO: That much is certain! :: notices the hair brush where it was dropped on the sheet, and places it on the bedside table as she stands, still fully clothed :: CSO: Agreed.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 21:40:44
::Moves around the house like a shaman performing a ritual, tapping the trees with his stick, casting dirt and dust into the air and following where it flows, and swirling his hand within the mist.::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:40:53
:: finds the scraps of the rabbit creatures, casually ripping out and gathering the bones to boil in a pot ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:41:36
:: walks around the bed and heads out into the living room to sunnily announce :: Good morning, everyone!
SCI LtJG Jude 29-Jan-2020 21:41:38

:: immediately follows Harper out, eager to check in with everyone--their crew! ::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:42:18
:: smiles at the captain, her hands nice and gooey and the counter much the same already ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:44:10
All: I hope you all slept well? If it was anything like the night before last for me, just sleeping inside for once was a nice change of pace.
CMO Lt Tailor 29-Jan-2020 21:44:17
::Gets out of bed finally, smoothing down the borrowed clothes she's slept in, and pads out of the room, looking for everyone else:: All: Morning, everyone.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 29-Jan-2020 21:44:33
:: grumbles, rolling back over to keep sleeping ::
XO Cdr Kuari 29-Jan-2020 21:44:34
:: notices Acacia's mucky hands, and she can't help but be thankful someone else is handling the corpses for a change. Really, having them all together will make them much stronger, she things, with the division of labor. The thought encourages her ::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:45:07
:: nods enthusiastically, tossing another bone in the pot she's using :: CO: It was refreshing. Give the Gencodians my thanks. :: she jokes ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:47:39
:: grins :: MED: I would love to. :: looks around at the members of her crew that are here ::
NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 21:48:05
:: sees the remains of the fire outside, and notices the bow-drill on the counter, so he takes it outside with him after nodding in greeting to the captain ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:48:48
All: First off, be polite about the bathroom and shower. I know everyone is eager to be clean.
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:49:38
:: chuckles at that, very much needing a shower herself ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:49:53
:: catches a whiff of herself, having worn these clothes for two days now :: Myself included.
CMO Lt Tailor 29-Jan-2020 21:50:22
::finds a seat in the main area of the house, listening to Harper::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:50:55
Second, I did not wash the larger clothes yesterday, but they are quite wearable, only musty. Please find something that you can stay warm and dry in. The fabric is quite good at shedding water.
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:51:04
:: casually knifes down the rabbit remains as she listens ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:51:13
XO Cdr Kuari 29-Jan-2020 21:51:20
:: listens to Harper, the suggestion of the bathroom making her think strategically where to relieve herself next ::
NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 21:51:28
:: listening through the door as he stacks the leftover wood and tinder ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:52:55
MED: Doctor, you brought a fishing net with you, I believe?
XO Cdr Kuari 29-Jan-2020 21:53:27
:: sits on the floor next to Harper, smiling and looking to Acacia ::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:54:07
:: nods, pausing to look at the Captains as she was addressed :: CO: It's stowed in the child's bedroom to be out of the way. I need a few vines to repair it, then we can use it again.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 21:54:12
::Uses his powers to listen in to the conversation from outside; more liberally using his abilities feeling like being able to move an atrophied muscle again.::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:55:09
CO: Or.. rope? :: she's hopeful ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:55:25
MED: Wonderful! Please do so and set it up, since those fish were quite delicious! I have yet to find any rope, though.
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:55:54
:: nods, shaking her slimy hands :: All: Anyone wanna take over cleaning the bones for broth?
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:55:58
All: That does bring me to my next idea, though: An inventory of what we do have. Any volunteers?
CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 21:56:25
MED: You'll need help with the net, right?
NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 21:56:32
:: sets up the bow-drill and notices the curious red braided string, and smirks as he realizes what it is before beginning to spin it on the board ::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:56:49
:: nods :: CO: Yeah, can I have Alexis?
XO Cdr Kuari 29-Jan-2020 21:56:57
:: gets up, knowing she has good practice with animal cleaning and it needs doing, and moves into the kitchen ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 21:57:19
MED: I suppose I can spare her. :: grins, but is still loathe to let Lexy out of her sight despite her cheerful presentation::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 21:58:03
:: smiles at that :: CSO: Are you ready to go? We only need a handful of vines.
CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 21:59:28
Self: The laundry will have to wait. :: goes over to stand with Acacia ::
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 22:00:16
:: nods lightly, sympathetic :: CSO: I'll shower after I have to cross the river. Heh.
SCI LtJG Jude 29-Jan-2020 22:00:34
:: comes back inside, carrying a reasonable amount of conifer needles ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 22:00:39
::Appears in the room; still naked, but sporting his cane instead of a stick.:: CO: Is there anything I can assist with? ::His voice strangely muffled.::
XO Cdr Kuari 29-Jan-2020 22:00:46
:: stands up over the counter once she gets to Acacia, towering over her in order to reach the task at hand ::
CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 22:01:39
MED: I'm ready. Let's go and get the net fixed before we run out of morning.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 22:01:42
::Disappears. Then walks into the room, with the stick in hand again. Smiles, expectantly.::
SCI LtJG Jude 29-Jan-2020 22:01:47
:: puts them down on the table, and then covers ilaihr with his robe. mainly so it is easier to ignore the... fiddly bits ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 22:01:53
:: claps her hands, Ilaihr's nakedness not even registering :: CEO: Of course! This house had power once. I would like you to figure out how it did, and if we could potentially get anything working again.
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 22:02:07
:: hands off the bone cleaning to Kuari and washes her hands :: CSO: Alright! :: she heads out the door, towards the woods where she'd seen vines ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 29-Jan-2020 22:02:11
:: finally stirs, rolling off the chair and stretching before looking at Harper :: CO: Grey reporting for duty, ma'am.
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 22:02:52
:: Smiles at Grey :: TAC2: Good morning, lieutenant! Perhaps you and Doctor Tailor could see what we have around here to work with? Take an inventory.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 29-Jan-2020 22:03:37
:: gives a thumbs-up in acknowledgement and wanders over to join Tailor :: CO: Sure thing, ma'am.
SCI LtJG Jude 29-Jan-2020 22:03:48
:: walks over to Harper :: CO: What did I miss?
CMO Lt Tailor 29-Jan-2020 22:03:56
CO: Will do.
CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 22:04:33
:: follows Acacia out into the woods :: MED: How many do we need?
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 22:04:33
SCI: Just the morning duty assignments, as usual. :: chuckles :: Trying to make tea, I assume? :: gestures at the conifer needles ::
NAV Lt Navarro 29-Jan-2020 22:04:53
:: gets an ember going and quickly transfers it into the tinder, blowing to help it along ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 22:05:00
::Rifles through his robe's pockets, before pulling out a small case, revealing his spectacles, which he proceeds to put on.:: CO: I should be able to do that.
XO Cdr Kuari 29-Jan-2020 22:05:11
:: begins separating the rabbit bones from its hide, having to look down cross-eyed at the small corpse in front of her. She's had to use her claws more the last few days than ever in her life, probably, and thinks she's getting better at the task by repetition ::
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 22:05:16
CEO: Lovely, thank you.
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 22:05:18
:: looks around, pulling the longest, healthiest vines she can find :: CSO: Three major repairs, six minor. I estimate 20 vines will do.
SCI LtJG Jude 29-Jan-2020 22:05:32
:: nods :: CO: Yep. Plain water in the morning is always a bit boring. It's better when it is either bean juice or leaf juice.
CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 22:06:18
:: moves to an adjacent tree and starts pulling down long, quality vines and cutting lengths of them with her a knife she borrowed from the kitchen :: MED: Maybe with everyone working together, we'll have time to get beyond survival and start thinking about how to get home.
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 22:06:18
SCI: Bean juice, preferably, but it will have to do. Would you mind aiding in cooking what we do have, or is there something you believe yourself better suited for?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 22:07:22
CO: What of this place? Is there a basement? An attic? ::Looks around.:: I would imagine a junction box around, somewhere.
MED Lt Acacia 29-Jan-2020 22:07:48
:: smiles warmly, keeping her cheer getting easier as they're all together :: CSO: I told you we'd be fine. And here we are, each using our strength. :: she pulls vines, laying them over her shoulder. She counts them, and continues looking ::

:: looks up at the ceiling, having not really noticed it before ::
SCI LtJG Jude 29-Jan-2020 22:07:55
CO: I could do fishing or trapping.
CO Capt Harper 29-Jan-2020 22:08:40
:: nods to Jude :: SCI: Go see if Acacia and Wright need another set of hands, then.
CEO: I have not found a basement, and it does not look like there is space for an attic with that high ceiling. That said, I have not fully explored every corner for hidden compartments.
CSO Cdr Wright 29-Jan-2020 22:09:26

CEO LCdr Ilaihr 29-Jan-2020 22:10:11

CMO Lt Tailor 29-Jan-2020 22:10:33
