Ship Approaching!  
[There’s a bit of static on Cambot’s screen, before Joel’s face appears once again. He’s still in the cockpit of his tiny spaceship.]

Joel: --I’m almost there now, so hang tight! Oh, and by the way: open the pod bay doors, Gypsy!

Gypsy: I’m sorry Joel, I’m afraid I can’t do that.

Joel: Aww come on, Gypsy. I’ll let you talk to Richard Basehart on the phone. I got his number while I was down on Earth.

Gypsy: Oh, well in that case, yesyesyesyesyesyes! Opening Launch Deck doors now!

Joel: Thanks, girl.

[If characters want, they can come and meet Joel down in the Launch Deck now!]

29th Dawn  
[Riku's in the hallway, right under a light. Sweat covers his brow. He stares at a door contemplatively and apprehensively, a hand over his heart. He looks down at his chest and closes his eyes a moment. When he opens them again, he places his flashlight on the floor and balls a fist.

He doesn't seem to either know or care that Cambot's there.]

...It can't stop me.

[Suddenly Riku throws the door open and steps into the darkness quickly, slamming the door behind him. His breathing quickly grows so loud it can be heard on the other side of the door. Whimpers, followed by short cries come before a scream. There's some scrambling on the other side of the door before Riku throws himself out, slamming the door back closed. He sits under the light, holding himself. Perspiration shines on his arms as he whimpers slightly. ...This doesn't seem to be the first time he's done this. His hands go to grip his head.]

...I'mnotafraidofthedarkI'mnotafraidofthedarkI'mNOTAFRAID OF THE DAAARK!

[Riku turns and looks like he's going to reach for the handle again, but his shaking hand falls short and he goes back to holding himself tightly.] I can... I can I can I can...

28th Moon. With three wolves.  
[Riku is trotting down the hall with something in his mouth. ...Something dead. It appears to be a bird, maybe waterfoul. He comes up to a door and drops it on the floor in front of it, sitting back on his haunches. He holds his head high, looking happy with himself and starts panting. Riku scratches at the door, but it's cracked open slightly. Sticking his nose in, he sniffs a little, but stops short of pushing it open. He waits.

It's Namine's door.

...And is he... Wagging his rear in lieu of a tail?]

[Liz. Cambot. Office chair. She's not even paying attention to Cambot, waving her copy of Warhammer Fantasy around while in an animated argument with someone on the other like of what looks like Linkara's old phone. You know, the one he called the cops with from space long ago.]

What do you mean you can't accept this? Do you know how RARE these are? You could keep your business in the black for a year with the resale of this book! I have the pages scanned and copied twenty times over, it's not like I need it anymore! I'm making you the offer of a lifetime!


[She holds the phone away from her.] He hung up on me. Ungrateful bastard.

[She hangs up, pouts, and looks up at Cambot] Oh! Hi everybody, Iron Liz here. I was just thinking the other day...[Cambot seems to be expecting this part, and cues a sweet little theme to accompany Liz's speech.] We've been through a lot together, the bunch of us. We've been haunted, mind-screwed, fire drilled, ponified, and subjected to some of the worst of the worst books out there. But we've all made it this far because you guys are just awesome. Sure, we don't always get along, hell sometimes it's just hard to look each other in the eye...[There's a knowing look at that; she means last week, of course. But she quickly smiles again] But I've really been so glad to have known you guys, and riff and play games with you. For all its faults, my time on the Satellite of Love has been so much fun, and you guys are like a big family to me, even if a slightly dysfunctional one.

I don't think we're gonna be up here for much longer. Once Joel gets back, he'll have that twin-screw thing fixed, and we'll all be going home. But there's something I think we should all do before that happens, like a last sendoff to the Satellite of Love, only before that idea really gets depressing.

I want us to do one more big experiment.

All of us.

What do you say?

Twenty-second Key  
Hey guys! Aside from some people, um, italics talking unitalics a little weird now, it still seems like things are mostly normal around here...and I know I promised some of you that I’d teach you how to swim! Namine and Xion, I know you asked about it. If anyone else that doesn’t know wants to learn, meet me down at the recreation deck pool and I’ll try and teach you about swimming!

I think a lot of us wanna take our minds off of things. And swimming is a lot of fun once you get the hang of it.

Twenty-first Key  
[Sora is back in his own room again. It takes him a little bit to recognize what all of this is, including the pictures he's pinned to the walls and the dirty clothes on the floor. There's another moment of thinking, and then his face instantly falls. He looks completely miserable, as if he's ready to break down any moment.]

That...that was absolutely horrible...

[He squeezes his eyes shut and swallows.] Gypsy...please let's not use the dimension jumping engine again! I don't ever wanna be...wanna do something like that, ever again!
23 January 2013 @ 06:06 pm
Nineteenth Key  
[It looks like Sora is still stuck in black and white, but he’s not letting that or any of the other Satellite restrictions stop him now. He’s situated outside the nature deck, since the theatrical one is closed right now, and looks determined.]

Hey, everyone! I know this week’s black and white rules and stuff are being a pain, but we can’t let that stop us from doing something fun and creative. We should put on a skit or movie of some kind! If making fun of the experiments is helping the humans on earth get better, than doing even more fun stuff should help them even more!

We can bring stuff up to the top deck and do it there, so that the girls aren’t left out, too.

Twelfth Theft  

[Umm, you know that thing where you feel uncomfortable if you start speaking out against authority? Yeah, guess who's not paying attention to that at all. If you look close, you can tell Zidane's still feeling the weirdness because his facial expression is a little off, but he's spent his life speaking his mind about everything (and, on a more subliminal side, overcoming oppression) so like hell he's not going to do it now.]

[Also he's just goddamn pissed if 90% of his expression is anything to go by. While he's been annoyed on the Satellite before, usually he just more or less goes with the flow, but this just hit the last straw for him. Because he's standing outside the theatrical deck and the Satellite not only stuck a bigass lock on the door, but took away all his picks so he can't just sneak his way inside.]

It's not enough to take away all our colors and anything that we can use to express ourselves, it's even worse that you're making the girls stay in the most boring part of this ship, but now we can't even open these doors?! Who in the HELL are you to say what we can and can't do, we are NOT your PUPPETS!

[And apparently he's... really serious about proving that wtf Zidane where did you get an axe?! It's not a huge axe, no, but it's still an axe, and his clothing isn't restrictive enough to stop him using it. He grabs it from where he left it propped up against the wall and immediately starts swinging it at the lock, over and over, striking the metal repeatedly in an attempt to get in.]

[He's not quite aware that the tip of his tail is starting to turn blond again...]
22 January 2013 @ 12:03 am
26th Dawn  
[Riku has a serious expression. He also has slicked-back hair to match his new outfit. He's dressed as a greaser, complete with jeans and leather jacket. ...Well, it suits him better.]

Namine. You and the other girls can't get downstairs. Meet me at the cafeteria deck elevator. We're going to try some things.

Cambot? You're recording this. If something works, and it's specific, then we need to know what. Even if it's something as dumb as crossing our fingers.
18 January 2013 @ 09:05 pm
25th Dawn  
[Cambot narrowly ducks something flying past, only to have its lens covered up by some really ugly vest. The feed statics a little before it focuses on someone throwing clothing out of boxes on the theatrical deck.

It's Riku. Man, no wonder he's looking through other clothing. Wow, Riku, wow.

He looks up to see Cambot and pauses before he narrows his eyes at the little bot.]

You better not be recording.

The 11th Burst of Flame  
[Lea stomps into his room, with cardigan diamond shaped vest. Oh boy, he looks dork as ever. Like more so than usual, due to the 50s style coming back. He folded his arms as poked the cambot.]

Oi, anyone got some explanation as to why all the art supplies are missing?!

I can't stand the black and white scene.
15 January 2013 @ 04:22 pm
[Well nothing seems to out of the ordinary just yet. Just Harvey Finevoice standing around in some spiffy clothes, checking himself out in the mirror and...wait, what's Harvey doing in 90s Kid's room? And does he usually slouch like that? And what's he doing flipping his trilby back and forth on his head like he can't get it right? And is his hair usually all mussed like that?]

I dunno how he does it man. This suit kinda itches...

[Oh. That's not Harvey. And he looks over at Cambot, suddenly embarrassed.] Are you filming me?!

[Whoop! Gotta go!]

18 Cupcakes: Now Eating Your Face  
Hey, guys! So you remember those Beast Cupcakes I was making for Emperoctopus Forrester's party? Yeeeeeeeeah, some of them kinda got out.

Don't worry, though! They're wayyyyyy too small to actually eat anyone. Just give them a little something to munch on and bring them back to the kitchen while they're busy!
19 December 2012 @ 09:18 pm
[Liz. Office chair. Swiveling around in the chair staring at the ceiling looking bored as all hell.]

I swear, it feels like this week is never going to end.

[She looks up vaguely at Cambot.]

So...what do you guys think happened to Joel? It didn't look like he made it over that dimensional jump or whatever they called it, and even if he did he'd probably be worse off than we are about this whole Battlefield Dinosaurs thing.

And speaking of which...I kinda hope we don't stay here too much longer. I wouldn't put it past them to send someone up here, and I'd rather not spend another week avoiding traps. At least last time I had the benefit of being a cat.
10 December 2012 @ 01:30 am
1 Feather  
[Oh hey, a new face! A pale, spotted figure is sitting in the cafeteria looking up at the camera rather bewildered. He's obviously new and out of place - and are those cat ears, and two pairs of wings?!]

I...like to think I can handle a little weird. I've seen it all. I'll take being warped away to an unfamiliar place while I'm just sipping my tea. I'll even take strange floating balls staring at me. [At least he thinks they're staring - are those even eyes?]

...but why is there a dinosaur outside?
10 December 2012 @ 12:11 am
|| Fifth ☄ ||  

[Oh hey there Ratchet, where've you been? Stuff happened on the ship while you were gone.

...but something about the Lombax just doesn't look quite right. His fur's a bit bristled and it doesn't look like he's been sleeping very well at all. Scorch-marks cover some pretty broad sections of his armour, notably his hands. But he ignores all that and tries to address Cambot with as casual a demeanor as he can manage.

Which isn't that good.

Something's definately bugging him, other than their current predicament.]

I was gonna say something along the lines of how the heck I got tossed back and forth like this but, ah...

Could someone tell me why there's a talking dinosaur plastered all over the place?
28 October 2012 @ 10:14 pm
Someone is not sure what to think of this...  
[Cambot is on the nature deck and is focused on one of those hunting season signs. However, unlike all of the other ones, it is for a species not yet seen on the satellite. Roxas has noticed it.]

Panda Season?

[He looks at Cambot. Besides looking puzzled, his eye looks better. Obviously, it isn't bothering him at the moment and he's a bit more interested in this oddity. Cambot hasn't a clue, however, and does a little bob with a slight tilt that may be meant to be a shrug.]


[Roxas turns to go about his business, which is this case was just looking around. He hasn't really spent a lot of time on the nature deck yet, though he isn't sure why he's doing so now. In any case, in his poking around, he finds something. A cranky something that he seems to have startled. Huh, that's... well, that's a panda. That's a panda in an uber cute anime style. Pandas are bears. Herbivores, yes, but they still have the teeth and claws of a carnivore. This one is upset.]

...Oh hell...

[Roxas exits stage left with a rather annoyed panda hot on his heels. From off camera come sounds that would seem to indicate that Roxas is not having fun with the panda. Then the sound dies down. The panda enters from stage left with a scrap of cloth in its mouth that might very well be the seat of Roxas's pants, looking rather satisfied. A couple minutes later, Roxas leans into frame, looking miffed. He sounds pathetically embarrassed when he speaks up.]

Cambot, stop filming.

[The feed obligingly cuts off.]

7th Bushel  
[Oops, there's a sizable pony-shaped crater in the wall of the cafeteria, along with a trail of strewn banana peels. After a moment, Big Macintosh crawls out of the hole, looking completely unharmed, though as he shakes himself out his mane fluffs with a POOF before he looks sternly at the camera. Who in the hay left all these banana peels around?]
22 October 2012 @ 12:41 am
[Chibi paws at the camera, then steps back, looking as solemn as a cartoon wolf pup can. He barks, bounces up and down, then crouches and covers his head with his paws. It's kind of hard to work out sign language for this sort of thing, and he'll probably get a lot of questions, but hopefully people will get the message. That bouncy ball could hurt someone.]

OOC: So when Sora and Chibi were playing in the rec room, they may have bounced one of the small balls there a bit too hard. Characters may encounter a fast, unstoppable ball bouncing around the halls of the ship. Watch your heads, guys!

Chapter 1 - A New Face  
[ The camera is floating along, recording seemingly nothing. the hallway is empty. But then, it gently swings around the corner. Aha. There's a new face. Or, rather, a new back -- long dark hair tied at the bottom, legs in marigold, with little red ankle-high boots. Click, click, click, are her heels as she walks slolwy down the hall, until she comes to the end. She looks left, looks right, gloved fingers reaching up toward her lips in a thoguhtful pose. Then, she turns over her shoulder. Ah, now there's her face. Her gaze lifts to the floating little camera.]

It's a bit unnerving, with you following me like that you know. [yes, she's talking to the camera] I don't suppose you can tell me which way to go? [and the camera swings back and forth, as if shaking it's head 'no'. The girl frowns, and turns back to her dilema. Left.. or Right?]
