31st Dawn

[There's some static and Cambot's feed comes up. Riku doesn't seem to know Cam's recording. He's sitting on a pipe in a hallway, looking at the stars outside. He seems to be thinking very seriously about something. He closes his eyes and sighs. The heat alone is enough to open his eyes wide.

Riku simply blinks. Slowly he raises his head and breathes out like one expecting to see their breath in the cold winter air. Instead is a puff of flame. The color is unsettling.]

...This can't be good.

Twenty-second Key

[Sora is bundled up in the blankets on his bed, looking a tad bit nervous. There's an extra towel taped up over his window so that you can't see the darkness of space outside, lit from below by a heart-shaped night light. He turns to Cambot, eyes big.]

Hey, Cambot? Do you think you can keep your lights on again tonight?

[He thinks a little bit.] Maybe there's another night light in the theatrical deck, too...

Someone has poor timing...

[Roxas is unprepared when the satellite rights itself, having not been watching Cambot when the switch was hit. He's not watching Cambot because it doesn't follow him into the bathroom (it sometimes just films the door while he's in there, like now) and he's just getting out of the shower. Sure, it's awkward with the ship tilted, but it's doable.

Until the ship suddenly rights itself and stepping out of the shower turns into falling out of the shower. While the only video is the closed door, the sound is quite clear. Aside from the initial yelp, the only sound is a low grumbling, which might be fairly colorful if anyone could hear it clearly. Eventually, the grumbling stop and faint sounds indicating someone toweling off and getting dressed can be heard.
]

Cambot, if you're filming when I open this door...

[Of course Cambot is filming when he opens the door. Aside from the beginnings of some bruises from the fall, he doesn't seem to really be hurt. He's definitely annoyed, though. He just shakes his head and walks away, obviously headed for his room.

Imagine his surprise to get there and find a mint on his pillow. The jerboa is sniffing at it curiously. Roxas picks up the mint and looks at Cambot, clearly puzzled. Cambot bobs and tips to the side briefly, its version of a shrug.

29th Dawn

[There is water all down Riku's front. Riku looks... Well, he looks outright grumpy. Cambot statics a moment, then pulls back. He's just coming out of the bathroom, stumbling slightly from the slope.] You'd better not be recording.

[Silence.] You are, aren't you, Cam?

[A pause before DING-DING! Riku holds his face in his palm.] It's water. The sink overflowed. Again. [Cambot focuses on Riku's white vest. Yes, it's clean water. Riku pushes past, he's clearly going somewhere.] I'm sick of not even being able to use the bathroom without nearly making a gross mess. I try to keep it clean. I don't even know how you girls are managing. [Climbing the stairs is interesting... Riku doesn't trust the elevator like this.]

[He gets to the top deck and b-lines for one thing: the twin-screw controller. He goes straight for it and pulls the lever without a hint of hesitation. You know he's ticked.]

Someone is... at least a little civilized... maybe

[Roxas is in his room, lounging on the bed and bouncing a tennis ball off the wall, catching on the rebound and tossing it again. He looks annoyed, though there's no way to tell why he's annoyed.

He seems to be taking to the civilized life better than everyone else, though. It's entirely possible that mama wolf explained to him that he's not actually a wolf and that when/if others of his kind found him, he would do better to learn their ways. Who knows? When he notices Cambot, he catches the ball and holds it.

After a pause, he makes a shooing gesture. Cambot pans side to side. That's a no. Roxas makes a noise that sounds distinctly like a growl. He's not completely civilized, it seems. At no point does he speak. When Cambot still doesn't take the hint, Roxas tosses the tennis ball at him.

Oh, that's a cracked lens. Roxas leaves the room, upright and surprisingly comfortable with it. Maybe mama wolf was familiar enough humans to make sure human puppy was moving the way he should?

XXVI

[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!

...hello?

[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!

27th Dawn

[Riku's in the Rec Deck, his hands grasping the still-racked weights as he lays on the bench press. He looks confused. He lets go and slowly sits up, looking around and then giving quizzical look to Cambot. Riku looks away, thinking. His expressions shift, usually only subtly, though at a few points there's a distinct look disgust and at one point, utter revulsion.] ...Uuuugh. [Then, slowly, his eyes widen in a look of horror. His face lowers itself defeatedly to the palm of his hand.]

...Oh no.

[OOC: Riku is about to vanish into his room for a few days, though probably not before grabbing some food from the cafeteria deck and kitchen. Some supplies go missing from the theatrical deck. After which he'll be seen only briefly as he uses the restroom. He'll use the shower in the middle of the night, and a light can be seen under his door at all hours.]

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.

2 Feathers

[Well look who it is! That newcomer who never seems to do anything but hide in his room. Well this time he's actually come out, dressed up in a blouse and poodle skirt. Yes, you read that right. He's had to modify it a little for his wings and tail, of course, and he even has a little speckled bow tied around one headwing, isn't that cute.]

Anybody want to tell me why I'm suddenly several colors fewer?

[Video]

Oh-hokay, so we're going that route, huh?

[Instead of looking annoyed by the sudden, drastic change, Ratchet seems to be getting into the spirit of things! There's even a large pirate hat on the Lombax's head, flicked up by a thumb as he steps upon an empty treasure chest.

Someone's definitely had experience with this, hasn't he?]


Pirate ships mean treasure, and treasure means you're not gettin' it before me.

Someone is starting to think he's losing it.

[Roxas is poking at pirate costumes on the theatrical deck. He looks at Cambot when he realizes he isn't alone and just shakes his head.]

Now we have a pirate theme. If Hook shows up, I'm done.

[He holds up a hat that looks to belong to a different Disney pirate captain, however. Sora (or anyone who has seen Pirate of the Caribbean) may or may not recognize Barbossa's hat. From Cambot's POV, we can see that Jack's hat is in the same box. Roxas looks between the two hats for the moment before unceremoniously chucking the Barbossa has back into the box and walking away muttering.]

Forrester needs a hobby.

Fourteenth Breeze

[By now Ven's learned not to be concerned when his regular clothes vanish - this is the SOL, after all. And at least the ones it's given him in replacement aren't that bad, apparently some sort of dark uniform with a white tie that's actually pretty comfortable and not horrifically embarrassing. Though he doesn't quite get why the SOL is literally forcing him to carry around a rabbit-shaped backpack when he really doesn't care about it. But every time he tries to leave it behind, it just shows up again, so he's given up on it for the time being and clipped his little badge to it. He's in the exhibition area, a rather familiar plush in his hands but looking at it with a more serious expression than the fake puppy probably warrants. Clearly he's got something else on his mind, and once he realizes Cambot's there he doesn't waste time in bringing it up.]

Hey, guys - Frank's puppy, his new one. It can travel through walls and stuff, right? Do you think it might be able to get up here and... I don't know, maybe make things even worse? They can change things around up here on their own already, but they don't come up here themselves so far. Do you think they'd send him instead?

...And was I just seeing things or did it steal a film reel from them?

Someone hates his luck.

[Cambot finds Roxas in the kitchen, in all his black-and-white cartoony glory and having somehow managed to navigate the minefield of banana peels without slipping. He's fetching ice for some reason. Huh, now why would he be wrapping a little plastic baggy of ice in a towel?

When he turns to face Cambot, he's holding the makeshift ice pack to his face, his left eye in particular, and he does NOT look happy. He glares for just a moment before removing the ice pack and giving a good view of a marvelous shiner.

That looks painful...

He puts the ice pack back before speaking up.
]

Chibi. Sora. I found that ball you guys were talking about.

[He pulls a red ball out of his pocket, holds it up for Cambot to look at and then puts it away again. The last thing they need is for it to get set bouncing again.]

Eighteenth Key

[Sora is looking over the changes for this week...huh, it looks like he's in black and white. He shakes his arm, and it wobbles like a rubber hose.]

Hey...this is kinda familiar!

Did we go back in time this week, and without the time machine? Except the rest of the Satellite looks about normal...either way, it's kinda weird!

24th Dawn (Probably backdated to first day of this week)

[Riku's trying to hide his face with an ice pack. Cambot isn't helping.]

Hey. Could someone help me find some aloe on the nature deck? ...It might be a few days before the swelling goes down.

[Cambot manages a good shot, albeit amongst its typical static. Wow, he's got some first and second degree burns across his eyes. Clearly he can see, but still, that's gotta hurt.]

23rd Dawn

[All the lights are off in Riku's room, leaving the only light source coming from the twilit world outside the window. Riku is silhouetted against it, sitting backwards in a chair from his desk. He's been around, but not much lately. The chair back supports Riku's arms, and he has placed his head down upon them. The view zooms in as Cambot comes closer and nudges Riku's shoulder. His voice is very soft.]

...Not now, Cam. [Cambot pauses and gives him another nudge.]

I'd let you out if I could, Cam, trust me. Just leave me alone right now. [Riku looks up. He's seen better days. He's holding his neck and shoulders tensely, and though he looks annoyed, his eyes appear a little puffy. His pained look worsens slightly as he realizes what Cambot is doing.]

Don't record me. [Riku's hand covers the lens.]

Seventh Sunrise

[Cambot comes across Ammy with a simple red and gold scarf tied around her neck. She's just laying down in her room, looking forlorn. When Cambot finds her, she briefly looks up at him, but doesn't seem all that interested.]

[Perry's missing. She's gone and looked, sniffing all over, but after having similar things happen to Chibi and Shepard, it doesn't take much guessing to realize what's happened to him. One of her good long-time friends is gone, and that's enough to leave Ammy feeling really down. She just sighs at Cambot...saying goodbye is never easy.]

XXIII

[Cambot hovers around the hallway, coming around the corner a little nervously, drawing back in surprise when he finds Liz sitting in the hall looking...rather dazed. Cambot comes closer and...wait, is she sitting on 90s Kid?!

Yup. Yup, she is. 90s Kid is lying on the floor with an expression of bafflement, completely petrified much like Namine was, and Liz is slumped over on his stomach. She looks at Cambot, completely serious as she runs a hand through her hair.]

Listen up you guys, we've got some serious business. There's a basilisk running amok on the Satellite. I dunno how it got up here or where it's been hiding, but it's deadly. It's a huge snake, and its gaze can kill you.

As Mister Finevoice has demonstrated already. [She side-glances forlornly.]

Listen, just. Whatever you do, if you're in the halls, keep your eyes firmly focused on your own feet. Check around corners with a mirror, do whatever you can not to make direct eye contact. If you're careful and only see it indirectly, well...[she looks down at 90s Kid] It's better than the alternative.

Just. Be careful you guys. Please.
