Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
The war is over, and Atlantis has returned to Earth so that her crew can indulge in some well-earned and necessary shore leave. Along with all that Earth has to offer, quantum slipstream transport ships are available to ferry passengers to the major worlds of the Federation.

Emily Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:40:09
:: smiles faintly :: Mom: I still have the orchids you gave me when I shipped out. Actually managed to keep them alive!
Janessa Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:40:20
Emily: Oh? I’m impressed.
Kate Harper 20-Oct-2021 22:40:42
Lexy: I hate it, too. I do everything I can to avoid it.
Rike Herschel 20-Oct-2021 22:41:01
:: if she didnt have food and booze occupying her hands she would otherwise clasp them together :: NAV2: Lovely!
CEO LtJG D’bryn 20-Oct-2021 22:41:55
Amylla: Sounds like a fun time while it lasted, right?
Rike Herschel 20-Oct-2021 22:41:55
Oh! NAV2: Do you know if T'Lira enjoys any particular plants?
Emily Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:42:21
:: gets herself another drink, remaining planted at the table with her sister and friends while her mother paced the floor entertaining ::
Doc Navarro 20-Oct-2021 22:42:23

XO Cdr Kuari 20-Oct-2021 22:42:26
:: has had enough of the cheese and sniffs at Navarro's offerings, but doesn't sample any and looks at those around her, deciding where to wander ::
Doc Navarro 20-Oct-2021 22:42:47
:: sees Kuari sniffing at the Spanish food :: XO: Try the chili chocolate!
Amylla Isaev 20-Oct-2021 22:43:09
:: shrugs :: Zoë: Couldn't sing, but could dance like crazy.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Oct-2021 22:43:14
Navarro: The...what? :: looks back at the food ::
TAC 1Lt Ammora 20-Oct-2021 22:43:29
:: shouts at the Skylark :: HEY HANNAH!
Emily Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:43:46
:: takes a bite of her portion of chili chocolate on cue ::
Doc Navarro 20-Oct-2021 22:43:52
:: gets back up and walks over, pointing out the spicy chocolate :: XO: This!
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 20-Oct-2021 22:44:03
:: shakes her head :: Rike: I don't know much about Sehlat, I'm afraid. She's a very private person.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Oct-2021 22:44:41
:: furrows her heavy eye ridges :: Navarro: I don't think I will like it, it smells spicy.
Emily Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:45:19
:: looks over :: XO: Not a fan of spicy?
Lexy Wright 20-Oct-2021 22:45:51
:: sighs again :: Kate: I know you do. And you did everything you could to protect all those people. But they're still dead, you know?
Doc Navarro 20-Oct-2021 22:45:54
:: nods, somewhat disappointed :: XO: It is, yes.
Rike: She seems to work a lot. I ran into her once in the assault bay in the middle of the night.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Oct-2021 22:46:17
:: shakes her head at Acacia ::
:: checks Navarro's face :: I'm sure it's delicious though, if one can handle spice!
Janessa Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:47:13
:: quickly whips together a smoothie that mixes Betazese and Earth fruits, offering it to Kuari :: XO: Try this! It’s naturally sweet.
Kate Harper 20-Oct-2021 22:47:22
:: looks down into the water where her legs enter it, quiet for a long several seconds ::
Lexy Wright 20-Oct-2021 22:47:47
Kate: And it could have been us, Kate.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Oct-2021 22:47:59
:: grabs for the offered smoothie :: Janessa: Thank you! Although I've had quite a bit of the fruit already, a blend would taste good I bet!
Rike Herschel 20-Oct-2021 22:48:20
NAV2/Doc: Ah, dang. She seems like such an interesting person. I swear I'll crack those walls one at a time.
Kate Harper 20-Oct-2021 22:48:53
:: her voice wavers :: Lexy: I know.
Janessa Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:48:55
:: nods enthusiastically :: XO: You like fruit? We grow a good bit here.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 20-Oct-2021 22:49:05
Rike: Somehow, I would not be surprised if you actually managed to do it.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 20-Oct-2021 22:49:24
Skylark> Perimeter alert. Human male, Starfleet. Recorded audio determined to be addressing Hannah Ziredac.
Doc Navarro 20-Oct-2021 22:49:25
Rike: Good luck to you! :: raises his beer ::
Rike Herschel 20-Oct-2021 22:49:34
Doc/NAV2: Wouldn't be the first Vulcan I've cracked!
Hannah Ziredac 20-Oct-2021 22:50:07
:: sighs :: Let me fucking guess. :: stands up, throws a robe on, opens the hatch, leans out, sees Scott ::
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Oct-2021 22:50:11
:: tips the smoothie carefully into her mouth and smiles :: Janessa: I do. Very good!
Hannah Ziredac 20-Oct-2021 22:50:18
TAC: What's up, Ammora?
TAC 1Lt Ammora 20-Oct-2021 22:50:36
Hannah: I heard you singing!

:: seems quite pleased :: XO: Good! I hope you enjoy.
Hannah Ziredac 20-Oct-2021 22:51:15
TAC: Are you some kind of dog? How the hell'd you hear me through the hull?
Emily Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:51:22
:: raises her beer as well :: Rike: I hope you manage it.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 20-Oct-2021 22:51:44
Hannah: Perfect pitch resonates. :: shrugs ::
Lexy Wright 20-Oct-2021 22:52:41
Kate: I know you're not ready to retire yet, Kate, as much as you're trying to convince me otherwise.
Hannah Ziredac 20-Oct-2021 22:52:47
:: scrunches face :: TAC: You need somethin? I'm hungover like fuck, and the lights out here are literally ending my life.
Lexy Wright 20-Oct-2021 22:53:06
Kate: And I made a promise to stay with you and support you, so I'm going to fucking do that.
Kate: But you know how I feel. And one day, when you're ready, we can leave this life behind.
Amylla Isaev 20-Oct-2021 22:55:17
Zoë: Well, it was okay time. Sauëdeyan, why don't you put down the hydrospanner, and we can go have some food? Maybe a drink too. I don't think you and I've had a proper drink together.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 20-Oct-2021 22:55:35
Amylla: Yeah, we can hit the forward lounge, and—
Emily Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:55:41
:: looks around at the party as she picks at her food, considering this night a success ::
Kate Harper 20-Oct-2021 22:55:42
:: takes a deep breath and blinks at the moisture in her eyes, then looks from the water back to her wife :: Lexy: I would though, you know that... right? I mean it. I might not be ready, but how many times do I need to almost die before I get to be done?
Amylla Isaev 20-Oct-2021 22:56:01
Zoë: No, let's go to surface. Get some sunshine. Fresh atmosphere.
Rike Herschel 20-Oct-2021 22:56:07
:: lifts her own drink :: Aye!
CEO LtJG D’bryn 20-Oct-2021 22:56:08
Amylla: I...I can't.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 20-Oct-2021 22:56:11
Hannah: You know what's good for a hangover? Appetizers and a bloody mary at Troyo's. San Francisco's best breakfast place.
Janessa Acacia 20-Oct-2021 22:56:16
:: finally sits down at the table to eat something as everyone else has been served ::
Lexy Wright 20-Oct-2021 22:56:26
Kate: You say that, but you would hate retirement. And you would resent me for making you do it.
Amylla Isaev 20-Oct-2021 22:56:35
Zoë: Why can't? You have better place to be?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 20-Oct-2021 22:57:06
Amylla: No, it's... Look, I can't explain. Just trust me, please, Mama? I can't leave the ship. I'm not in trouble, I'm fine, but... I just can't.
Amylla Isaev 20-Oct-2021 22:57:52
:: shrugs :: Zoë: No skin off my ass. Is what they make holodeck for, anyway. Pretend sunshine, then?
Kate Harper 20-Oct-2021 22:58:17
Lexy: Maybe at first. But I would get over it, when we are knee-deep in whatever our next adventure might be.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Oct-2021 22:58:18

Hannah Ziredac 20-Oct-2021 22:58:45
:: stomach lurches :: Hair of the dog ain't workin for this one, buddy. And I gotta stay onboard, anyway.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 20-Oct-2021 22:59:29
Hannah: I play piano! Wanna sing?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 20-Oct-2021 22:59:51
Amylla: Pretend sunshine sounds great, Mama. :: walks with Amylla toward the turbolift ::
Hannah Ziredac 20-Oct-2021 23:00:17

Lexy Wright 20-Oct-2021 23:00:39
Kate: Don't do that. Don't tempt me, Kitty.
