Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission

Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 21:40:45
:: starts pointing out dishes and what they are :: NAV2: And yes, they are delicious.

Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 21:49:10
Lexy: It's even a bit different for me, here, compared to my hometown. This is even closer to the pre-tourist culture.

:: shrugs and digs in, figuring Ammora meant nothing by it :

Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 21:53:25
:: finishes a spoonful of the Puchero, nodding and pointing :: Janice: That's even better than I remember.

Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 21:57:49

Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 21:58:23
:: has definitely prepared too much food, and will be eating this spread for weeks. Always better to over-do than under-do, she thinks. ::

Kuari 01-Jun-2022 21:59:56

:: spots the wine, takes up the glass that came with his setting, ready to get a glassful ::
Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:02:24
:: smirks :: Kuari: Well, my husband helps. His family owns the lab-grown meat facility in town, and sometimes there's a surplus. We have great relationships with local farmers, I even get my honey from local beekeepers. This town is trying to keep its real food culture alive, and I love that.
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:03:04
Self: Full roundabout, huh, Scott?
Kuari 01-Jun-2022 22:03:17

Ammora: Stuff does that, doesn't it.
Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:10:51

Emily: No, she hadn't mentioned it. That's great!
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:12:10
:: nods eagerly :: Lexy: That does look good!
Ryleigh Grey 01-Jun-2022 22:12:35
Flores: He's a medical researcher and medic on Atlantis with the rest of us, but he's right now attending some pediatric cases at Starfleet Medical while I'm here. But he is absolutely sweet, he's an amazing man. :: can't help but beam as she talks about her husband ::
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:12:36
Leirone: Yeah, I guess. :: chuckles ::
Torinessa Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:12:54
:: blushes, brushing her hair behind her ear :: Doc: Oh, yeah. I'm going to be the therapist with travelling unit twelve. Currently, they're stationed in Indonesia reaching more remote areas.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 01-Jun-2022 22:13:12
Emily: Oh, really? Congratulations. Very prestigious, I believe. :: her tone is even as always, but she's trying to project pleasure ::
Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:14:05
:: rests her chin on her hands, grinning and attentive to Grey :: Ryleigh: You're stationed on the same ship? I love that. I'd heard they can do that. Lovely. So you were in primary school together?
Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 22:14:32
Tori: That's good and noble work. Congratulations!
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:14:42
:: smiles and looks at herself in the mirror, happy that Kate likes it :: Kate: And it's so soft. I wonder what the fiber is.
Kuari 01-Jun-2022 22:14:47
:: studies Ammora's face for a moment when he responds, then turns away, catching onto the current conversation and tasting another dish ::
Torinessa Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:15:10
:: smiles, looking around and obviously hoping the focus on her will fade :: Doc: Yes, I'm very proud. I think it's a great position.
Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:15:38
:: nudges her sister's leg under the table :: Tori/Doc: She's helping save the world.
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:15:55
:: feels the cloth :: Lexy: That's... ummm... what is the closest thing on Earth... like an alpaca wool.
Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:17:02
:: smiles at the phrase save the world ::
Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 22:17:10
:: raises a glass for a toast among those near him :: To saving the world!
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:17:21
Kate: Oh, really? :: looks disappointed :: It might be too warm, then.
Torinessa Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:17:29
:: blushes even harder, but forces a smile and raises her glass to the toast ::
Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:17:46
:: cheers :: Here here!
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 01-Jun-2022 22:17:46
:: raises her glass, with a small smile just for Tori ::
Ryleigh Grey 01-Jun-2022 22:17:47
Flores: Yes, we are. We attended the same schools, though he was always a year ahead of me due to cutoff dates.
Janessa Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:18:37
:: also raises a glass, grinning and resisting the urge to further torment Tori with praise ::
Kuari 01-Jun-2022 22:19:00
:: holds up her glass of infused water and toasts, chirping in agreement :
Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:19:06
:: nods :: Ryleigh: Do you have any brothers or sisters? Do they like him?
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:19:13
:: nods in agreement, absently ::
Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:19:25
:: cheers with his wine glass ::
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:19:26
Lexy: It breathes well! Though yes, this place is not as warm as Lunat Bay, around mid-day, I suspect it may be too warm. You'd still have plenty of cold enough weather here to wear it, if you want it?
Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 22:19:50
:: grins at Tori as he drinks up ::
Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:19:53
:: leans back in her chair :: All: Phew! I think, in this battle... the food has won.
Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:20:12
Acacia: A well-earned victory.
Ryleigh Grey 01-Jun-2022 22:21:12
Flores: I have no siblings, but he's the youngest of three.... luckily my family likes him.
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:22:54
Kate: Oh, I absolutely want it. But I also want something for today. :: looks through the offerings until she finds an intricately knitted summer shawl in an oatmeal color, darkening to a deep brown at the tips, and pulls it over her shoulders ::
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:23:12
:: surveys the room ::
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:23:45
:: is pleased with the light weight of it; turns to model for Kate ::
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:23:57
:: nods again :: Yes, that looks great!
Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:24:13
:: smirks :: Jack/Emily: Hope you saved room for some leche frita, though.
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:24:38
:: eyes Grey for a moment ::
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:24:55
:: loops it over her arm with the other one she intends to buy :: Kate: Do you know who else would love something like this?
Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:24:56
:: eyes light up :: Janice: I can't wait to find out what that is, if it's anywhere near as good as all this was.
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:25:17
Who? :: thinks about their friends ::
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:25:27
:: smirks ::
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:25:36
Kate: Emily! Don't you think?
Ryleigh Grey 01-Jun-2022 22:25:38
:: meets Ammora's gaze squarely, taking a sip of her water between bites ::
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:25:49
:: nods at Grey ::
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:25:58
:: snaps her fingers :: Lexy: Definitely! Let's get her one.
Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:26:10
:: laughs :: Grey: Excuse me. :: gets up to go fire up the deep-fryer ::
Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 22:26:24
:: grins in anticipation ::
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:26:29
Kate: Do you know what her favorite color is?
Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:26:33
:: rubs her stomach :: Jack: That'd be 'fried ice cream', and yes, it is nearly as good as all of this.
Kuari 01-Jun-2022 22:26:48
:: looks after Flores curiously for a moment, then looks down at the food, hearing Acacia's statement, not sure if she should keep going or not ::
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:27:05
:: just knows the answer without thinking :: Lexy: Blue, definitely.
Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:27:44
Acacia: Oh! I've had fried ice cream, but probably not in this style. The one I had was more of a, 'Hey look what we can fry now' variety.
Kuari 01-Jun-2022 22:27:49
Emily: I had better stop!
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:28:13
:: looks at Emily rubbing her stomach ::
Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 22:28:23
:: pushes his plate back, which is utterly clean ::

Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:28:54
:: looks at Grey ::
Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:28:56
:: takes a small sip of wine, her plate only mostly clear, a few small scraps not making it ::
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:29:08
Lexy: She would love that.
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:30:13
:: nods, looping it over her arm with the others and looking around the stall ::
Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:30:21
:: comes back in with two plates, each one with two balls of fried ice cream :: All: Alright, who's first? They're comin' out in pairs.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 01-Jun-2022 22:30:46
:: lifts her hand to be considered one of the first ::
Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 22:30:53

Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:31:22

Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 22:32:16
Jester: Now this is a treat.
Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:32:22
Ammora: Not a sweets guy, Ammora?
Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:32:32
:: nods, excited to see Kimiko's reaction ::
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:32:50
:: smirks :: Leirone: Sugar tires me out.
Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:32:57
:: is quickly back with the next set of plates, only a few minutes between deliveries ::
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 01-Jun-2022 22:33:22
:: gingerly breaks the surface with her spoon, taking a small bite and swooning just the teensiest bit as it melts in her mouth ::
Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:34:23
:: smirks in return :: Ammora: So tire out. We're on shore leave. Come on, when's the next time you're going to get a completely un-replicated leche frita?
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 01-Jun-2022 22:35:03
Emily: It's somewhat like the tempura ice cream I have had before. But better.
Doc Navarro 01-Jun-2022 22:35:16
:: nods in appreciation ::
Scott Ammora 01-Jun-2022 22:35:28
Leirone: :: half shrug ::

:: nods at Janice :: Janice: It's very good! You are a skilled chef. Thank you very much.
Kuari 01-Jun-2022 22:36:21

Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:36:43
:: smiles at the praise, and goes to get the next batch ::
Kate Harper 01-Jun-2022 22:37:36
Lexy: Anything else here catch your eye?
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 01-Jun-2022 22:37:50
:: continues to eat delicate little bites ::
Janice Flores 01-Jun-2022 22:38:35
:: hands plates off to Jack, Kuari, Doc, Emily, Ryleigh, and Janessa. She looks around to see if anyone else wants it, then points at Ammora :: Scott: Decided? Yes, no?
Lexy Wright 01-Jun-2022 22:38:46
:: scoops up a few throw blankets that she's decided she can't live without :: Kate: Ask them if they can pack these up and hold them for us until we're ready to go home.
Jack Leirone 01-Jun-2022 22:38:58

Emily Acacia 01-Jun-2022 22:40:20
