  1. [7/30/2013 8:50:10 PM] DBN: With the Invader successfully stopped and all Evangelion units recovered, the children are allowed to change before being escotred to what looked like a meeting room. There was a long table with numerous chairs on each side, snacks and bottles of water waiting on the table. On the walls hung monitors replaying the fight from different angles and different types of vision. There was even one playing out entirely using thermal imaging. The techs in the Science Department far below were no doubt having fun. There was even a camera on Elizabeth's EVA right now as repairs were being made.
  2. [7/30/2013 8:52:19 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth rubs her left arm a little as she watches the EVA being repaired, not fully comprehending the chaos that occurred.
  3. [7/30/2013 8:53:41 PM] Durk: Sabrina lounges back, watching the screens with a bored gazed.
  4. [7/30/2013 8:54:06 PM] MR RAGE: Septimius is quick to fetch a bottle of water and a bag of pretzels, offering both to the girls first.
  5. [7/30/2013 8:55:15 PM] Durk: Sabrina's quick to grab a water bottle, not offering thanks. She stretches, her leather jacket creaking.
  6. [7/30/2013 8:56:21 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth grabs a water and some pretzels with a quiet thank you before turning her attention back to the screens.
  7. [7/30/2013 8:57:14 PM] MR RAGE: Sep shrugs it off with a smile. "You did well today. Both of you."
  8. [7/30/2013 8:58:24 PM] Elizabeth: "If that's doing well I'd rather not have a bad day..." she mutters, starting to munch on pretzels.
  9. [7/30/2013 8:59:30 PM] MR RAGE: "Mh. Noone would claim our jobs are easy or fun. But it's necessary."
  10. [7/30/2013 8:59:45 PM] Durk: "I had fun."
  11. [7/30/2013 9:00:34 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth shoots a glare at Sabrina but continues to eat.
  12. [7/30/2013 9:01:04 PM] MR RAGE: Sep laughs, and drinks from his water bottle. "I stand corrected, then."
  13. [7/30/2013 9:04:50 PM] DBN: There's a brief knock at the door before it opens. Karinka is in first, looking less than amused. Even the skull on her eyepatch looks angry. Behind her in Kara, being pulled by her ear. "Guess who I found stuck in a civilan emergency shelter..."
  14. [7/30/2013 9:07:31 PM] Durk: Sabrina gets a little stiffer in her chair, sitting up.
  15. [7/30/2013 9:07:51 PM | Edited 9:08:07 PM] Kara: A nervous laugh rings out behind her, a little unsettling in the way it lilts up and down as her ear is yanked, "It's IRritating: no matTER how many times I could flash my badge, they didn't believe I was an officer. Fancy that." A thin, pale smile crosses the tall woman's face, flushed a little, ear bright red, "Ma'am, that hurts. I'd appreciate it if you used my cheek instead..." Her eyes are a little bloodshot, and there are hints of bags under her eyes, "Good to see you again, Septimus."
  16. [7/30/2013 9:08:13 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth munches a little more quietly, turning her attention to the newcomer and then to Sep.
  17. [7/30/2013 9:08:51 PM] MR RAGE: Sep tips his head politely, straightening his hair, still a little flat from the showers. "It's good to see you again, too, Ma'am."
  18. [7/30/2013 9:09:48 PM | Edited 9:10:00 PM] DBN: Karinka releases her ear as she moves to the head of the table, pausing to look at the different monitors with hands clasped behind her back.
  19. [7/30/2013 9:11:47 PM] Kara: Kara stands up straight, hand going up to rub her ear softly, "I heard bits and pieces of the after-action while the Commander brought me up here." Her eyes are wide and bright, the red Iris' reflecting the monitor's lights, "Well done, you... three?" And she smiles widely, teeth glinting a little.
  20. [7/30/2013 9:14:13 PM] Kara: Kara looks between the two girls, "Names? Please?" She is still smiling, although it's clear she's putting some effort into keeping it fixed.
  21. [7/30/2013 9:15:11 PM] Durk: "Sabrina." She remarks, taking a sip of water. She didn't look very impressed by everything going on.
  22. [7/30/2013 9:15:59 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth hesitates, looking her over first. "Elizabeth."
  23. [7/30/2013 9:17:37 PM] Kara: "Mhmhm..." Kara covers her mouth as she laughs to herself, "You certainly know how to make an entrance, Sabrina." And with that she turns her eyes to Elizabeth, "You have an extra syllable in your name." Her fingers rest on her lips and chin, barely masking the smile.
  24. [7/30/2013 9:18:29 PM] Elizabeth: "...What?"
  25. [7/30/2013 9:18:48 PM] MR RAGE: "Ah, pilots, this is Miss Kara, our Director. She's...eccentric." Sep offers Kara a smile.
  26. [7/30/2013 9:19:30 PM] Durk: "That's a nice way of saying it." Sabrina mumbles to herself.
  27. [7/30/2013 9:20:36 PM] Kara: She lifts her hand away from her face. "Sa-Bri-Na, Sep-Ti-Mus, E-Li-Za....beth." However, she turns her eyes to watch Septimus, "Indeed it is. He'll make a gentleman with this tact."
  28. [7/30/2013 9:21:08 PM] DBN: "Septimius. Not Septimus."
  29. [7/30/2013 9:22:07 PM] DBN: The Vice-Commander sighs, turning away from the monitors, eyeing the people collected in the metting room. She had an excellent poker face.
  30. [7/30/2013 9:22:51 PM] MR RAGE: Sep's face reddens a bit, and he straightens his hair again. "Sep, Liz, um..."
  31. [7/30/2013 9:23:12 PM] Kara: Kara pauses, "Oh. Nevermind then." Her smile slips for a moment, "Then Sabrina is our outlier." And this is matched with a hasty smile at the young girl.
  32. [7/30/2013 9:24:05 PM] Elizabeth: "Liz..?" She looks to Sep, then back to Kara, not sure how to react.
  33. [7/30/2013 9:24:28 PM] DBN: The Vice-Commander clears her throat.
  34. [7/30/2013 9:24:48 PM] MR RAGE: "A-ah, sorry, I got caught up in her name--" Sep's cheeks only get worse, and he straightens up. "Yes, m'am?"
  35. [7/30/2013 9:26:28 PM] DBN: "The Commander extends her congratulations to the three of you on a successful operation. While there was some structural damage there are no reported casualties. Elizabeth, despite your lack of training you were brave in the face of danger and fought well."
  36. [7/30/2013 9:26:34 PM] Durk: Sabrina crosses her arms, listening to everyone.
  37. [7/30/2013 9:27:18 PM] Kara: Kara stands up straight to listen, standing at ease, mirth slipping away to an emotionless face as the Vice-Commander speaks. However, she smiles ever so slightly at Elizabeth at the end.
  38. [7/30/2013 9:28:53 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth brightens a little for a moment, though it falls a bit as she remembers the battle in its entirety.
  39. [7/30/2013 9:29:02 PM] DBN: "You did well guiding her Septimius and made good use of your own unique skills. The damage could have been a lot worse without you. As for you, Sabrina, your sudden arrival was unexpected but welcome. We're glad to have such a well-trained combatant on the team."
  40. [7/30/2013 9:30:21 PM] Durk: She smiles at that. "Glad I could make it."
  41. [7/30/2013 9:30:49 PM] MR RAGE: Sep smiles as well, sharing the moment with his copilots, until he's practically beaming.
  42. [7/30/2013 9:31:29 PM] DBN: "Kara."
  43. [7/30/2013 9:32:10 PM] Kara: Kara stands at attention. "Ma'am."
  44. [7/30/2013 9:32:52 PM] DBN: She takes off her uniform jacket and rolls up her sleeves, revealing her cybernetically augmented arms. "So help me if I ever find you in another civilan shelter..."
  45. [7/30/2013 9:34:17 PM | Edited 9:34:25 PM] Durk: Sabrina wants some of those, her eyes grow a little bit.
  46. [7/30/2013 9:34:34 PM | Edited 9:34:44 PM] Kara: Kara 's face doesn't shift from the semi-stony look, but she nods a little, taking a deep breath through her nose. She doesn't say anything, but her body language says enough: she'll know better than to toe the line from now on. Certainly if "toeing the line" wasn't anything important anyways. Her eyes glance at the Vice Commander's arms, but she tries to keep her eyes on the Commander's forehead.
  47. [7/30/2013 9:36:09 PM] DBN: Seems they're at an understanding. "Good. The Commander trusts you, so I will too."
  48. [7/30/2013 9:36:43 PM] Kara: Kara nods slightly, "I will not violate it. You have my sincerest apologies, Ma'am. It will not happen again."
  49. [7/30/2013 9:37:05 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth's eyes widen a little, glancing at the Vice-Commander's arms, though she bites her lip to keep from asking questions.
  50. [7/30/2013 9:39:05 PM | Edited 9:39:22 PM] Kara: Kara slightly clears her throat, "Now then... Commander, will there be a debriefing, or are the pilots dismissed to my care?" She asks so carefully, as to not overstep her bounds.
  51. [7/30/2013 9:41:09 PM] DBN: "They're dismissed. I have a shuttle launch to oversee. Make sure you take Elizabeth and Sabrina to get apartments assigned."
  52. [7/30/2013 9:41:58 PM] Kara: Kara nods and salutes. "Aye ma'am. Best of luck with your launch." At this, she turns to the pilots, "Alright then, pilots. Let's get going."
  53. [7/30/2013 9:45:04 PM] Durk: Sabrina gets up out of her chair, looking down at the other pilots. "Is it normal procedure to have midget pilots?" She asks.
  54. [7/30/2013 9:45:18 PM] MR RAGE: "Midget...?"
  55. [7/30/2013 9:45:46 PM] Durk: "You come up to my shoulder..."
  56. [7/30/2013 9:46:40 PM] MR RAGE: "Natasha says it makes me seem harmless," Sep offers with a shrug. "Height doesn't affect the Evas, I don't think."
  57. [7/30/2013 9:46:47 PM] Kara: Kara was smiling, but it falters a little, "Ah... Sabrina... Where are you from?"
  58. [7/30/2013 9:47:37 PM] Elizabeth: "I sure hope it doesn't," Elizabeth grumbles, but doesn't look to Sabrina.
  59. [7/30/2013 9:47:57 PM] Durk: She shrugs. "Never knew where I was born. Lived at different army bases all my life. The base is my home."
  60. [7/30/2013 9:50:33 PM] Kara: Kara smiles thinly, "An Army child then." She steps up, looking down just slightly to meet Sabrina's eyes, "I want to make this a request." Her eyes glint a bit, "I can tell you're a fighter. Save your guns for the enemy."
  61. [7/30/2013 9:50:40 PM] MR RAGE: "Awh." Sep gives a probably-unneeded look of compassion.
  62. [7/30/2013 9:52:05 PM] Durk: "If you say so." She smirks.
  63. [7/30/2013 9:53:09 PM] Kara: Kara smiles and nods, "Thank you." She steps back to cover her mouth, "Ehehe... We're going to get along wonderfully, aren't we?" At this she clears her throat, "Right! Now, let's leave and get your housing situations set up."
  64. [7/30/2013 9:54:23 PM] Elizabeth: "Wonderfully indeed," Elizabeth comments quietly, finally standing after feeling dwarfed by Sabrina, though it doesn't help much.
  65. [7/30/2013 9:56:45 PM] Durk: "Can't wait."
  66. [7/30/2013 9:58:03 PM] Kara: Kara turns to start walking, humming to herself. She leads them through the place, almost as if she knows whe she's going, taking long strides, boots clicking as she walks.
  67. [7/30/2013 9:59:04 PM] MR RAGE: "Ah, m'am, may we watch the shuttle launch? Natasha's going up, and I'd like to wave goodbye."
  68. [7/30/2013 10:00:06 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth looks around as she follows Kara, trying to memorize where things are, but she's a bit too tired and frustrated to really put much effort into it. She slows to a stop when Sep speaks, having glanced right over it.
  69. [7/30/2013 10:01:33 PM] Kara: Kara pauses, "Oh... Oh, Natasha is going up?" She blinks, and smiles a little, "Hm... How often does this happen?"
  70. [7/30/2013 10:02:58 PM] MR RAGE: "It's been a while, I remember she was very excited to go up. I can find the place on my own, if you want to get them settled down."
  71. [7/30/2013 10:03:35 PM] Kara: Kara bites her cheeks, "Girls? Are you up for a little more walking?"
  72. [7/30/2013 10:03:52 PM] Durk: Sabrina shrugs.
  73. [7/30/2013 10:04:17 PM] Kara: Kara looks to Elizabeth, "Can you walk more? Or?"
  74. [7/30/2013 10:05:40 PM] Elizabeth: "I'm fine." She slumps ever so slightly, wanting to just relax, but she's not averse to the idea of watching the launch either.
  75. [7/30/2013 10:06:03 PM] Kara: Kara smiles, "Right then! To the surface!" And she starts off again in another direction, walking quickly.
  76. [7/30/2013 10:06:56 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth follows after a moment, pace slow because she's still looking around.
  77. [7/30/2013 10:07:36 PM] Durk: Sabrina follows as well, not really caring one way or the other.
  78. [7/30/2013 10:08:09 PM] MR RAGE: Septimius smiles, hands in his pockets, humming one of Natasha's "space" songs.
  79. [7/30/2013 10:10:01 PM] Kara: Kara looks over her shoulder, "The best place to watch would probably be Central Dogma, but if we're going to go there, I need your best behavior. It's a place for adults and soldiers, not children." She says this with a smile, "Understand?"
  80. [7/30/2013 10:10:38 PM] MR RAGE: "Of course, ma'am."
  81. [7/30/2013 10:10:46 PM] Durk: Sabrina's pretty sure she's the only real soldier here, but refrains from saying so.
  82. [7/30/2013 10:10:49 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth nods.
  83. [7/30/2013 10:11:01 PM] Durk: And simply nods unenthuesiastically.
  84. [7/30/2013 10:12:34 PM] Kara: Kara 's smile disappears as she turns to look forward, "Good! I'm looking forward to working with you all, watching you all do what none else can do." She says this as an afterthought, voice trailing off as she leads them to the heart of the command. Right outside she stops to examine how they look, before sheparding them in.
  85. [7/30/2013 10:15:25 PM] DBN: Central Dogma is alive with activity, from the Bridge Bunnies to the labcoat-clad Science Division all seemingly talking over each other but still working in harmony. Both the Commander and Vice-Commander are there to observe, a silent but authoitative presence. The massive display screen, the latest in holographic technology, is being projected at into several screen with the largest featuring Natasha inside the shuttle. It looks a lot like an entry plug, actually.
  86. [7/30/2013 10:16:45 PM] Kara: Kara sighs softly, "It's amazing, really... And I get to work here." She smiles at that, looking very tired for a moment. "There she is..."
  87. [7/30/2013 10:16:58 PM] MR RAGE: Septimius straightens up, suppressing the urge to wave, smiling wider than usual.
  88. [7/30/2013 10:17:46 PM] DBN: For all the serious attitudes it sounds like Natasha's singing 'Rocket Man' in Russian.
  89. [7/30/2013 10:18:53 PM] Durk: Sabrina has a good look around. This was a bit more advanced than what she was used to back in the army.
  90. [7/30/2013 10:19:14 PM] Kara: "I'd never take her for an astronaut with her personality." Kara shifts, arms crossing, "She's certainly impressive." Looking back down, she spends some time examining the pilots, reading their faces and taking mental notes.
  91. [7/30/2013 10:20:12 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth looks around as well, stopping on the screen that shows Natasha for a bit before continuing to examine the area.
  92. [7/30/2013 10:21:43 PM] DBN: "Captain Pokryshkin." It's Karinka addressing the massive screen, Natasha's face turning to look at the camera. "Once you've left the Earth's orbit you are to open the red envelope and follow the included mission. Understood?"
  93. [7/30/2013 10:23:02 PM] DBN: For just a moment Natasha looks serious, saluting the Vice-Commander and answering affirmative in Russian. Then she notices the others. "Well hey cutiepies!" She's beaming now, the screen dominated by her face. "Did you come to see me off?!"
  94. [7/30/2013 10:24:08 PM] Kara: Kara freezes for a moment as Natasha realizes they're there, vividly recalling that she might have exactly been allowed to witness this. She smiles to herself, somehow getting a little paler.
  95. [7/30/2013 10:24:41 PM] MR RAGE: Septimius salutes, doing his best to get a Russian one correctly. "Yes, m'am. We'll be waiting for your safe return!"
  96. [7/30/2013 10:24:55 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth gives a very small wave, stepping back a little.
  97. [7/30/2013 10:25:35 PM] DBN: "Ooo, who's the new girl?" Now it's just a close-up of her eye.
  98. [7/30/2013 10:26:41 PM] Durk: "Specialist Sabrina Gray." She seems to give Natasha a bit more respect than she has the others.
  99. [7/30/2013 10:27:58 PM] Kara: Kara takes a note, smiling a little and glancing at the rest of Central Dogma, expecting many glares.
  100. [7/30/2013 10:28:38 PM] DBN: Looks like everyone else is too busy working, though the Bridge Bunnies look entertained. When you're using children to save the world you have to have a little patience, eh?
  101. [7/30/2013 10:30:00 PM] DBN: "Specialist? Does it have anything to do with those bazookas you're carrying?" She laughs. "I'll hug all of you when I get back, promise!" She settles back into her seat.
  102. [7/30/2013 10:31:01 PM] DBN: "Flood the cockpit and prepare for launch!" the Vice-Commander's voice cuts through the room. Just like an entry plug the girl's cockpit starts to flood with the reddish liquid.
  103. [7/30/2013 10:31:58 PM] Durk: Sabrina coughs slightly at the comment, hiding a grin.
  104. [7/30/2013 10:32:33 PM] Kara: Kara smiles a little and watches, shifting her stance.
  105. [7/30/2013 10:32:40 PM] MR RAGE: Sep cocks his head. Had he seen LCL used in her launches before? The boy touches his chin, a rare moment as the smile leaves his face for a more ponderous look.
  106. [7/30/2013 10:33:45 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth watches the process with mixed feelings. More hugs?
  107. [7/30/2013 10:36:58 PM] DBN: As the launch team runs through their checklist the Commander herself makes an appearance, sliding up next to Kara. She wore a simple outfit and a pair of white gloves, hands clasped behind her back much like Karinka did. Her hair, black and thick, was tied into a messy bun. "Director, pilots."
  108. [7/30/2013 10:38:17 PM] Kara: Kara shivers a little, hardly noticable, and stands up straight at attention, "Ma'am."
  109. [7/30/2013 10:38:38 PM] MR RAGE: "M-miss Commander," Septimius is quick to reply, bowing his head in submission. Not nervous, but...energized? Attentive? The Commander definitely stokes something inside him.
  110. [7/30/2013 10:38:56 PM] Durk: Sabrina salutes.
  111. [7/30/2013 10:39:15 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth turns and does her best to copy Sabrina's action.
  112. [7/30/2013 10:40:19 PM] DBN: "The details of the shuttle Captain Pokryshkin will be using are top secret, so I'll be escorting you out of Central Dogma. I'm afraid you won't be able to watch the rest of the launch."
  113. [7/30/2013 10:41:25 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth peeks behind her at the screens again, curious. "Why is it top secret?"
  114. [7/30/2013 10:42:02 PM] Kara: Kara nods a little, "Aye Ma'am." She looks to the pilots with an apologetic look, and then fixes Elizabeth with a look, "If the Commander told us, that'd defeat the purpose of it being top secret."
  115. [7/30/2013 10:42:27 PM] Elizabeth: She falters for a moment, tired brain catching up. "Well...yeah, but not even like a small detail?"
  116. [7/30/2013 10:43:01 PM] MR RAGE: "I understand, ma'am." He gives one last big wave to Natasha, using the one bit of sign he knew: 'come back soon.' With that, he turns to follow the Commander, the picture of obedience.
  117. [7/30/2013 10:44:15 PM | Edited 10:49:09 PM] DBN: She smiles faintly as she escorts them out. "If you must know, Elizabeth, we're attempting to use technology from Project E to form a more intimate bond between pilots an purely mechanical vehicles."
  118. [7/30/2013 10:44:43 PM] DBN: "I trust you won't be sharing that information with anyone."
  119. [7/30/2013 10:45:30 PM] Elizabeth: "Uh...no." She tilts her head a little as she thinks more. "Purely mechanical? Like the EVAs?"
  120. [7/30/2013 10:45:50 PM] Durk: "I'll make sure she doesn't. Treason is punishable." Sabrina winks at Elizabeth.
  121. [7/30/2013 10:46:13 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth frowns. "We'll see about that."
  122. [7/30/2013 10:46:53 PM] MR RAGE: "I believe the Commander means with devices not shaped so much like a person. The synchronization process is more difficult when the body parts don't match up."
  123. [7/30/2013 10:48:15 PM] Kara: Kara raises an eyebrow, but doesn't say anything, instead watching the pilots, and the Commander out of the corner of her eye.
  124. [7/30/2013 10:48:29 PM] Elizabeth: "Oh. I guess that makes sense.." The last part is mostly to herself as she considers the other possibilities.
  125. [7/30/2013 10:49:07 PM] Kara: Kara clears her throat, "I apologize for overstepping out boundries, Ma'am. Now, my orders are to finalize the pilot's living arrangements."
  126. [7/30/2013 10:49:28 PM] Durk: Sabrina rubs her hands toger, ready to get a move on.
  127. [7/30/2013 10:50:18 PM] Kara: She shifts, "I was going to suggest shared accomadations, to foster a sense of comaradie."
  128. [7/30/2013 10:51:23 PM] DBN: The Commander turns her full attention to Kara now. "Do you think you can handle living with three teenage children under your constant care?"
  129. [7/30/2013 10:53:03 PM] Durk: Please not shared, please not shared...
  130. [7/30/2013 10:53:10 PM] Kara: Kara stands up straight, "As it is my duty to oversee the pilots' well-being, I feel that having them all in one place would improve my own performance."
  131. [7/30/2013 10:53:28 PM] Elizabeth: "...All of us?" She glances to Sabrina and Sep.
  132. [7/30/2013 10:54:11 PM] Kara: "However, Ma'am, should you find this unreasonable, I am willing to take the extra steps to bunk them apart from each other. However, should we need to scramble the pilots, this may result in... staggering response times."
  133. [7/30/2013 10:54:43 PM] MR RAGE: Sep scratches his cheek, watching the conversation with a passive look on his face. Has he not registered what's at stake?
  134. [7/30/2013 10:56:29 PM] DBN: "Much as Natasha will miss her neighbor Septimius...I see no fault in your logic and no reason to deny your request. Pilots? Anything to say?"
  135. [7/30/2013 10:57:32 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth bites her lip and looks between the other two pilots. "...How...shared?"
  136. [7/30/2013 10:59:04 PM] Kara: Kara looks to Elizabeth, then to the commander, "Ma'am, I will be putting in a request for a larger accomodations for myself and the pilots. Is this acceptable?"
  137. [7/30/2013 11:00:13 PM] DBN: "I suppose there isn't much of a choice, in that case." Such a sly smile she gets, though fleeting. "I'll make sure it's taken care of."
  138. [7/30/2013 11:01:24 PM] Kara: Kara nods thankfully, "Thank you, Ma'am. While bunking them together would be... interesting..." she bites back a smile, "It may have an adverse effect. Until the move, they will be with me then. Thank you again, Ma'am."
  139. [7/30/2013 11:01:44 PM] MR RAGE: Sep blinks. "Adverse effect?"
  140. [7/30/2013 11:02:02 PM] Durk: Sabrina crosses her arms. Oh well, at least it wasn't bunk beds like back at the base. Those were impossible to have privacy in.
  141. [7/30/2013 11:03:34 PM] DBN: "Why don't you stop at the requesition office before you leave? I think you'll find it to be helpful." She turns on her heel, heading back into Central Dogma. Is there shouting going on?
  142. [7/30/2013 11:04:38 PM] MR RAGE: Septimius strains his ears, leaning towards the noise nervously.
  143. [7/30/2013 11:05:04 PM] Kara: Kara blinks, and nods, "Yes Ma'am." She speaks up, "Alright pilots, let's get moving!" However, she tilts her head to listen as well.
  144. [7/30/2013 11:05:32 PM] DBN: The door closes with a hiss, the hallway silent now.
  145. [7/30/2013 11:05:46 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth watches the commander leave, wishing she could go back in there. When Kara speaks, she turns back around nervously.
  146. [7/30/2013 11:06:27 PM] MR RAGE: "Y-yes, ma'am." The boy fidgets, turning to follow Kara, looking uneasy, eyes searching the girls' faces for some reassurance.
  147. [7/30/2013 11:06:37 PM] Kara: Kara lets out a little sigh, "Hm." She starts to walk, humming to herself again.
  148. [7/30/2013 11:07:37 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth lets her gaze wander to the door for just a moment before following Kara.
  149. [7/30/2013 11:09:08 PM] Kara: Kara leads them to the requisition office, weaving her way through the base, "It's like a maze in here..."
  150. [7/30/2013 11:09:51 PM] Elizabeth: "How often do people get lost here..?"
  151. [7/30/2013 11:10:30 PM] DBN: The office itself is quite small, barely fitting the lot of them. Even the desk looks small, piled high with papers and electronics. It's hard to make out the person stuck sitting behind them. "Name?"
  152. [7/30/2013 11:11:10 PM] Kara: "Probably a lot. Little boys and girls who go wandering-" she stops, "Captain Kara Buher, with accompanying pilots."
  153. [7/30/2013 11:12:11 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth begins to speak but stops, though she tucks the question away for later.
  154. [7/30/2013 11:13:02 PM] DBN: "Buher. Right. The Commander called already." Theres some grumbling and shuffling of papers. "Please hand me your apartment keycards." A hand sticks out, wearing a latex glove.
  155. [7/30/2013 11:14:41 PM] Kara: Kara blinks, and reaches into her coat, pulling out several keycards and placing them in the hand, "These ones?"
  156. [7/30/2013 11:15:24 PM] DBN: "Yes. You'll need these instead." He offers a new set of cards, four in total.
  157. [7/30/2013 11:16:46 PM] Kara: Kara takes them, counting them out, "Thank you. One for each of us! And where is the new apartment?"
  158. [7/30/2013 11:17:29 PM] DBN: "First penthouse."
  159. [7/30/2013 11:18:01 PM] MR RAGE: "Ah! A penthouse!" Sep manages to cheer himself up with that, it seems.
  160. [7/30/2013 11:18:36 PM] Kara: Kara blinks, "Oh my." She grins, "That'll be fun. Hopefully nobody here is afraid of heights!" And at that, she steps back, "Thank you for the cards."
  161. [7/30/2013 11:18:46 PM] Durk: Sabrina manages a smile. Could be nice, maybe.
  162. [7/30/2013 11:18:56 PM] DBN: A grunt. "Just go."
  163. [7/30/2013 11:19:54 PM] Kara: Kara smiles, "Have fun there. Don't get buried in the paperwork!" And she spins to walk out.
  164. [7/30/2013 11:19:58 PM] DBN: Considering the height of the employee apartment complex constructed behind the OPUS pyramid, they'd be able to see across City 51 and beyond easily.
  165. [7/30/2013 11:20:22 PM] Elizabeth: "So it's high up?" Elizabeth asks as she follows Kara, other question momentarily forgotten.
  166. [7/30/2013 11:20:58 PM] MR RAGE: "Mhm. The Commander lives above us, but we're almost as high up as you can be in the city."
  167. [7/30/2013 11:21:49 PM] Elizabeth: She smiles a little at that, following with a little more enthusiasm than before.
  168. [7/30/2013 11:21:53 PM] Kara: Kara nods a little, "It'll give us a nice view of everything OPUS protects. A little reminder of what we're fighting for."
  169. [7/30/2013 11:22:06 PM] Durk: "We headed there now then?"
  170. [7/30/2013 11:23:06 PM] Kara: Kara nods, walking, "Mhm. We'll take the elevator up though. Hope you like music."
  171. [7/30/2013 11:26:21 PM] DBN: According to the buttons in the elevator there were three penthouse levels. The bottom penthouse belonged to them, the top to the Commander. Who lived in the middle one? Not important. The elevator doors open to their new home, boxes already piled in the living room. Looks like someone packed up the stuff in Kara and Sep's apartments, delivering it along with Lizzie and Sabrina's boxes. It's spacious with a connecting dining area and open kitchen.
  172. [7/30/2013 11:27:36 PM] Kara: Kara walks out into the apartment, stretching, "Aaaaah... Welcome home, I suppose. Time to divy up rooms."
  173. [7/30/2013 11:28:37 PM] Durk: "Hmm." She starts walking around to give the penthouse an initial lookover.
  174. [7/30/2013 11:29:11 PM] DBN: There are six rooms to pick from, five of them identical and one large enough to be the master bedroom. Two and a half bathrooms, a closet hiding a washer and dryer, the biggest flatscreen you can buy...
  175. [7/30/2013 11:29:33 PM] MR RAGE: Sep gravitates towards the windows, letting out a coo of enjoyment. "You all can pick, I don't mind where I end up." He offers with a smile.
  176. [7/30/2013 11:30:17 PM] Kara: Kara smiles, "Septimius gets the couch then!" And she goes to the boxes, poking around and pulling out things that look like Aquariums, "Oh... Tch. Leave it to military staff to treat my babies like this..."
  177. [7/30/2013 11:30:18 PM] DBN: It's such a clear night that you can make out portions of the Lunar Debris Field.
  178. [7/30/2013 11:30:37 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth looks around, eyes stopping on the TV before sweeping the rest of the penthouse, and then walks towards one of the windows as well. "So many rooms..."
  179. [7/30/2013 11:31:08 PM] MR RAGE: The Greek laughs, putting his hand on the window. Is Natasha's rocket trail visible from this angle?
  180. [7/30/2013 11:31:56 PM] DBN: Whats left of it. Maybe it's a trick of the light, but there might even be a bright little dot up there, shooting in and out of the debris field.
  181. [7/30/2013 11:32:25 PM] Durk: Sabrina wanders off into a bedroom with a box of her things, leaving the others to do whatever.
  182. [7/30/2013 11:32:51 PM] MR RAGE: Ahh, that puts a smile on the boy's face. Put at ease, he backs away, running his fingers through his hair and turning to the girls. "Mn."
  183. [7/30/2013 11:33:36 PM] Durk: And she's back out, looking through the boxes for her stuff.
  184. [7/30/2013 11:33:40 PM] Kara: Kara blinks, watching Sabrina disappear, "Bit of a lone wolf I see." She starts stacking things on the kitchen counter, humming to herself. She takes off her jacket, wearing a black blouse underneath itrolling up her sleeves to free up her pale arms.
  185. [7/30/2013 11:34:21 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth moves away from the window slowly, watching Sabrina move her things before investigating a different room.
  186. [7/30/2013 11:35:02 PM] Elizabeth: "Is there any real difference between any of the rooms anyways?" The question is mostly to herself, but she looks through all of them.
  187. [7/30/2013 11:35:34 PM] Durk: "Mm." She shrugs, not giving Kara much of an answer.
  188. [7/30/2013 11:36:12 PM] Elizabeth: She pauses on the first room, noticing a book. Glancing around to see where the others are, she goes to the bed and picks up the book, smiling.
  189. [7/30/2013 11:37:29 PM] MR RAGE: "One of them is a master, I think."
  190. [7/30/2013 11:37:35 PM] Kara: Kara shrugs, "There's probably one room larger than the rest, a master bedroom." She opens one of the aquariums and reaches into it, closing it afterwards and returning to unpacking, "Now then, let's... let's..." She freezes, "Oh no. Oh no, no no no no." And she reaches into the box to carefully examine an aquarium with it's insides scattered all over the box, and glass shattered.
  191. [7/30/2013 11:37:54 PM] MR RAGE: "...Miss Kara? Are you alright?"
  192. [7/30/2013 11:38:25 PM] Durk: Sabrina picks up another of her boxes. "Guess they weren't that gentle, were they.."
  193. [7/30/2013 11:38:27 PM] Kara: Kara shakes her head, "They broke one of the boxes." At this she stands up, "Everybody, watch where you step! This is important!"
  194. [7/30/2013 11:39:26 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth thumbs the pages of the book carefully, completely oblivious to Kara's panic, sitting on the bed as she looks it over. "The Once and Future King..." she mutters, as she settles on the first page.
  195. [7/30/2013 11:40:02 PM] Kara: Kara bites her cheek, "Two Huntsmen... Be careful..." And she starts searching the boxes.
  196. [7/30/2013 11:40:38 PM] DBN: No sign of the little beauties Kara.
  197. [7/30/2013 11:41:00 PM] Kara: Kara seems to slump, and she almost looks on the brink of tears, "My little babies..."
  198. [7/30/2013 11:42:07 PM] Durk: Sabrina looks around her feet to make sure she won't squish anything, then heads off into her chosen room with the box.
  199. [7/30/2013 11:42:09 PM] DBN: Sabrina! You open a box to find a spider staring at you. It's rather large and doen't look native to the area.
  200. [7/30/2013 11:42:42 PM] Durk: She gets to the doorway stopping and dropping the box. "Son of a bitch!"
  201. [7/30/2013 11:43:01 PM] Kara: Kara blinks, "Language!"
  202. [7/30/2013 11:44:07 PM] DBN: Looks like it plans to chill there, Sabrina.
  203. [7/30/2013 11:44:08 PM] Durk: She looks around for something heavy, settling on her shoe.
  204. [7/30/2013 11:44:25 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth looks up at the outburst, standing up to peek out into the living room.
  205. [7/30/2013 11:45:00 PM] Kara: Kara heads towards Sabrina, "What happened- did you stub your toe?"
  206. [7/30/2013 11:45:36 PM] Durk: "The fuck is that?!" She aims the shoe at the spider.
  207. [7/30/2013 11:46:22 PM] Kara: Kara gasps, darting forward, "No, don't!" And she makes to grab the shoe.
  208. [7/30/2013 11:46:45 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth moves closer now, keeping her page while holding the book.
  209. [7/30/2013 11:46:51 PM] MR RAGE: "Oh dear..." Sep joins the peanut gallery, looking down at the spider's box. Very gingerly, he reaches to pull the box to safety, without disturbing the arachnid occupant.
  210. [7/30/2013 11:47:11 PM] DBN: Looks like Reginald has had enough, darting off out of the box and into Sabrina's room.
  211. [7/30/2013 11:47:24 PM] MR RAGE: "Ah--"
  212. [7/30/2013 11:47:29 PM] Kara: Kara follows after him, "No! Reginald, come back here!"
  213. [7/30/2013 11:47:59 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth blinks, watching. "W-was that...Was that a spider?" She takes a few steps back, though still peeks into the room where it ran off.
  214. [7/30/2013 11:48:10 PM] DBN: He's on the wall, trying to get under the clock hanging there.
  215. [7/30/2013 11:48:50 PM] MR RAGE: "Mhn. The Director's pets, it appears."
  216. [7/30/2013 11:48:55 PM] Kara: Kara nods, "Yes! He's one of mine- He and his brother shared the tank before it broke!" She follows the spider, "Damnit Reginald, stop that!"
  217. [7/30/2013 11:49:26 PM] Durk: "Get it out of my room, or it'll be in spider hell soon enough."
  218. [7/30/2013 11:49:53 PM] Kara: Kara turns, giving her a deadly look, "If you ever threaten that again, you sleep on the roof."
  219. [7/30/2013 11:50:03 PM] Elizabeth: "Pets...Those things aren't supposed-" she stops and takes a breath, turning around and heading back to her room. Books. Spiders are ignorable enough...so long as they stay over there.
  220. [7/30/2013 11:50:06 PM] MR RAGE: "...and his brother?" Sep points out, no doubt exacerbating the situation.
  221. [7/30/2013 11:50:26 PM] Elizabeth: And she pauses. "There's more than one missing?"
  222. [7/30/2013 11:50:58 PM | Edited 11:51:23 PM] DBN: Reginald is easy enough to reclaim from the wall, quite still once in Kara's care.
  223. [7/30/2013 11:51:31 PM] Kara: Kara nods a little, "Reginald and Barker. Reginald's usually the less lively one..." She carefully offers her hand, letting it crawl up her arm, "There we go... There's my baby..."
  224. [7/30/2013 11:51:44 PM] Durk: Sabrina glares at Kara, clearly trying not to say what she wanted to.
  225. [7/30/2013 11:52:57 PM] Elizabeth: "...I-I'm going to go back to my room. Or rather, the room I just claimed," she says slowly, retreating back to the bed.
  226. [7/30/2013 11:53:26 PM] Kara: Kara walks out, spider resting on her shoulder, "Keep an eye out for Barker! He jumps!"
  227. [7/30/2013 11:54:44 PM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth ignores the comment, sitting on the bed and resuming reading. Moving boxes could wait a while.
  228. [7/30/2013 11:54:47 PM] MR RAGE: Septimius lets out a soft sigh, smiling. He stands, grabbing one of his boxes to claim one of the untaken rooms. The master, perhaps?
  229. [7/30/2013 11:55:15 PM] Durk: Grumbling, Sabrina kicks the box across her room to join the other and goes to get her final box of belongings.
  230. [7/30/2013 11:57:05 PM] Kara: Kara smiles, "Sep- can I call you that?" She lifts out another box, one much more secured than the last, the glass obscured by web.
  231. [7/30/2013 11:58:09 PM] MR RAGE: "Of course, ma'am." The boy smiles, unfazed by the spider still on Kara's shoulder.
  232. [7/30/2013 11:58:48 PM] Kara: She grins, "Wonderful. Which room did you pick?" She carefully sets down the box, reaching up to pet Reginald.
  233. [7/31/2013 12:00:40 AM] DBN: Reginald, for his part, rubs his front two legs together.
  234. [7/31/2013 12:00:44 AM] MR RAGE: "I was thinking of taking the master, but if you want it for your pets, I'd be happy to take a different one." Sep's eyes fix on Reginald, out of curiosity more than fear.
  235. [7/31/2013 12:00:59 AM] Durk: Sabrina comes out, joining the rest of them, having stripped her leather jacket off and looking a tad bit less confrontational.
  236. [7/31/2013 12:01:40 AM] Kara: Kara smiles, "Well, you're always welcome to visit my babies if I take it." She goes to peek at the remaining room, to see how much of a size difference it is.
  237. [7/31/2013 12:02:20 AM] DBN: The master bedroom is twice the size of the others with a full bathroom attached.
  238. [7/31/2013 12:04:06 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "Ah... This is... nice." She bites her cheek, "You already picked it, but..." She eyes the bathroom and sighs. "Rock paper scissors?" And a sly grin crosses her face.
  239. [7/31/2013 12:05:50 AM] Durk: She heads to the kitchen looking to see if the fridge has food.
  240. [7/31/2013 12:07:13 AM] MR RAGE: "Ah, alright." The boy chuckles, extending his hands to get into position. "Ready?"
  241. [7/31/2013 12:09:03 AM] Kara: Kara giggles to herself, "Aaaaand! One! Two! Three!" Scissors!
  242. [7/31/2013 12:09:16 AM] MR RAGE: Sep slaps down paper! "--ah! Fair and square, ma'am."
  243. [7/31/2013 12:10:19 AM | Edited 12:11:01 AM] Kara: She covers her mouth, "Ehehehe, sorry Sep!" She smiles, "Since I won, you can choose what dinner we get delivered- I haven't had the chance to go shopping yet."
  244. [7/31/2013 12:10:36 AM] Durk: "Empty." She sighs, closing the fridge.
  245. [7/31/2013 12:10:59 AM] MR RAGE: "Ahh. Hnn." Sep touches his chin. "Why not pizza?"
  246. [7/31/2013 12:11:28 AM] Kara: Kara giggles, "How American. Sure!" She calls out, "Pilots! We're ordering pizza- who wants what?"
  247. [7/31/2013 12:14:43 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth isn't entirely paying attention, giving a response that doesn't really fit the question, she's just reacting to the loud voice.
  248. [7/31/2013 12:14:59 AM] Durk: "Cheesy bread sticks.."
  249. [7/31/2013 12:15:07 AM] Durk: "With that dipping sauce."
  250. [7/31/2013 12:15:16 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "Oh wow. No carnivores here?" She smiles, "Fine by me- and you, Sep?"
  251. [7/31/2013 12:17:34 AM] MR RAGE: "Hnhn. I'll have some sausage and pepperoni, ma'am. Leave the other half cheese, for Elizabeth's sake."
  252. [7/31/2013 12:19:04 AM] Kara: Kara smiles, "You are a gentlemen, Sep. You'll be winning hearts with that." She goes to the phone, biting her cheek and paging through the yellow pages for a pizza parlor.
  253. [7/31/2013 12:19:47 AM] MR RAGE: It's hard to tell if she's kidding or not. Sep shrugs it off and starts properly unpacking his room, selecting one of the normal-sized ones as promised.
  254. [7/31/2013 12:21:55 AM | Edited 12:22:05 AM] Kara: Kara places an order, making sure to get enough for the lot of them (and leftovers, and sticks). She goes to call out for the rest to help unpacking, but stops. "Probably asked enough of them already." Sighing, Kara stands up straight to crack her back.
  255. [7/31/2013 12:25:09 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth starts to relax as she gets into the book, but after a while puts the book down slowly, looking around the room. It was that same feeling like someone was reading over her shoulder...
  256. [7/31/2013 12:26:10 AM] DBN: Maybe it's coming from that corner there.
  257. [7/31/2013 12:27:03 AM] Durk: Sabrina paces around the apartment, giving it a much better look over now, stopping by the windows for awhile to check out the view.
  258. [7/31/2013 12:27:28 AM] Kara: Kara pauses as she unpacks, pulling out clothing and fabrics and materials, "It's beautiful, isn't it?"
  259. [7/31/2013 12:27:42 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth looks over to the corner slowly, a sinking feeling in her stomach.
  260. [7/31/2013 12:28:21 AM] DBN: It strikes! Seems Baerker found you, landing on your chest!
  261. [7/31/2013 12:28:58 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth shrieks, dropping the book out of panic and scrambling off the bed, landing with a soft thud. "GETITOFFGETITOFFGETITOFF!"
  262. [7/31/2013 12:30:02 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "What the- Elizabeth?"
  263. [7/31/2013 12:30:07 AM] Elizabeth: She tries to whack him off.
  264. [7/31/2013 12:30:50 AM] MR RAGE: "I believe we found his brother," Sep offers, poking out of his room and into Elizabeth's.
  265. [7/31/2013 12:31:27 AM | Edited 12:31:29 AM] Kara: Kara pales, and runs for the second time of the day, "Elizabeth! Calm down!"
  266. [7/31/2013 12:31:46 AM] Durk: Sabrina looks over her shoulder at the commotion, and shrugs. At least she didn't scream like that.
  267. [7/31/2013 12:35:41 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth sends the spider flying across the room.
  268. [7/31/2013 12:36:35 AM] Kara: Kara gasps, eyes wide, watching with what is probably adject horror as her beloved pet flies to bump into the wall and tumble onto the floor.
  269. [7/31/2013 12:38:13 AM] Elizabeth: She scrambles to her feet and grabs the book as if to use it as a weapon, then puts it down, looking for something else. Finding nothing, she wipes her shirt as if expecting another spider to be there.
  270. [7/31/2013 12:39:16 AM] Kara: Kara carefully rushes over to the spider, hands like little birds as she carefully picks him up. She's misting up, and she lifts the spider with the care of a mother and a child, "Barker..." She stands up, walking out slowly.
  271. [7/31/2013 12:39:52 AM] DBN: His legs are twitching at leas-- wait, thats not always good.
  272. [7/31/2013 12:40:15 AM] Kara: Kara chokes back a little sob, and sets him down on the counter, watching him with worried eyes.
  273. [7/31/2013 12:41:01 AM] DBN: It's about half a minute before the legs uncurl and Barker struggles to get off his back. He lives!
  274. [7/31/2013 12:41:28 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth shudders and goes out to grab her two boxes, giving the room another look over for more surprises.
  275. [7/31/2013 12:41:57 AM] Kara: Kara is quiet for the time, before letting out a happy sound as Barker comes back to life. She offers her sleeve to help him, humming happily.
  276. [7/31/2013 12:42:31 AM] DBN: Up he goes, taking her shoulder much like his brother did.
  277. [7/31/2013 12:43:39 AM] Kara: "It's okay!" She smiles to herself, a very sad one, "He's okay. And now you can go back with your brother... Where is your brother..." She looks to her other shoulder, spider hidden amongst her hair, letting out a relieved sigh. "Carefull you two. Anansi gets jealous."
  278. [7/31/2013 12:45:48 AM] Kara: When the pizza arrives, Kara has washed her hands and put away the spiders, calling out for the pilots, "Kids! Dinner!" She pays for it quickly, humming to herself.
  279. [7/31/2013 12:46:19 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth leaves her boxes where they are, heading out to food tentatively. "Pizza?"
  280. [7/31/2013 12:46:58 AM] Durk: Sabrina heads over, grabbing a plate and a fair share of pizza for herself, and more than a fair share of cheesy sticks.
  281. [7/31/2013 12:47:30 AM] Kara: Kara nods, smiling, "Food! For everybody!" She sits down next to one of the boxes, setting her paper plate on the box, "First dinner as a team."
  282. [7/31/2013 12:47:34 AM] MR RAGE: Septimius settles down, filling a plate for himself, several slices of meat lovers'. Seems the boy's quite the carnivore. "Is that alright, Elizabeth?"
  283. [7/31/2013 12:48:51 AM] Elizabeth: "Yeah." She looks the selection over, picking one cheese slice and one of the meat lovers' slices as well before taking a seat.
  284. [7/31/2013 12:50:16 AM] Kara: Kara grins, taking one of the cheese slices, "Alright then!" She claps her hands together, "Let's eat!"
  285. [7/31/2013 12:51:10 AM] DBN: There's a knock at the front door!
  286. [7/31/2013 12:51:13 AM] MR RAGE: Sep holds his slice up, and chows down. It wasn't at all like the polite dinners he had with the Commanders, nearly silent affairs. This was...friendly. More like--
  287. [7/31/2013 12:51:54 AM | Edited 12:51:56 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "Door?" She stands, uncrossing her feet, "I'll get it- the rest of you eat." And with that she's up and at the door to peek out.
  288. [7/31/2013 12:52:05 AM] Durk: Sabrina looks to the door, cheesy stick in her mouth.
  289. [7/31/2013 12:52:10 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth settles on the cheese pizza first, mouth full of pizza when someone knocks. She turns to look at the door as well.
  290. [7/31/2013 12:54:02 AM | Edited 12:54:08 AM] Kara: Kara yelps, and runs back to grab her jacket, pulling it on, "Oh god oh god oh god." And when her jacket is on, the door is opened!
  291. [7/31/2013 12:55:07 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth watches her run around with some interest, though she's mostly focused on her pizza and trying to peek around Kara to see who's at the door.
  292. [7/31/2013 12:55:15 AM] DBN: Oh look it's Karinka...again. She's out of her uniform, wearing what look like yoga pants and a tanktop. No shoes but she's carrying a cardboard box. "Sorry to intrude..." Even her hair is down, spilling past her shoulders.
  293. [7/31/2013 12:55:43 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "Uh... Commander?" She looks... pretty surprised.
  294. [7/31/2013 12:57:42 AM] DBN: "I forgot to give you something. The pilots are going to need it tomorrow." She comes in and puts down the box, everyone getting a good look at just how augmented her body is. It's a lot. Most of is centered along her spine and abdomen.
  295. [7/31/2013 12:58:07 AM] MR RAGE: Septimius only glances, knowing better than the other two to stare.
  296. [7/31/2013 12:58:23 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth tries to keep her eyes from wandering, but she can't help it. She's never seen anything like it before.
  297. [7/31/2013 12:58:27 AM] Durk: Sabrina stares.
  298. [7/31/2013 12:58:56 AM] Kara: Kara steps aside, "Pardon my manners. Welcome to the home." She eyes the augmentics, but looks away to watch the box, "Do they get to see them yet, or...?"
  299. [7/31/2013 12:59:32 AM] DBN: "It's school uniforms." She says, hands on her hips.
  300. [7/31/2013 1:00:03 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "School uniforms?"
  301. [7/31/2013 1:00:09 AM] Durk: "...school."
  302. [7/31/2013 1:00:12 AM] Kara: "Wait... We're sending them to public school?"
  303. [7/31/2013 1:00:29 AM] DBN: "Correct."
  304. [7/31/2013 1:00:30 AM] Elizabeth: "School uniforms..? We're going to school?"
  305. [7/31/2013 1:00:43 AM] MR RAGE: Sep perks up.
  306. [7/31/2013 1:01:05 AM] DBN: "As minors and wards under the care of OPUS it's required that you continue your education with minimal interuption."
  307. [7/31/2013 1:01:29 AM | Edited 1:02:10 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "I see..." She shifts and nods, "That makes sense... Sort of. What of the security risk? Will there be teams watching them?"
  308. [7/31/2013 1:01:56 AM] Elizabeth: "What security risk?" She finishes the first slice and turns more to get a better look.
  309. [7/31/2013 1:02:29 AM] DBN: "What security risk? I'll show you."
  310. [7/31/2013 1:02:58 AM | Edited 1:03:06 AM] DBN: She crosses the room to their television, picking up the remote. She stares for a moment. "Why does it have more buttons than mine?"
  311. [7/31/2013 1:03:32 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "Probably the DVR... Do we have a DVR?"
  312. [7/31/2013 1:04:15 AM] DBN: "Maybe this one...okay...now this? No. Nope. Oh! Now it's in French. Wait, wait..."
  313. [7/31/2013 1:04:51 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth gets up and moves closer hesitantly, bringing her other slice of pizza with her.
  314. [7/31/2013 1:05:40 AM] Kara: Kara tilts her head, "Ahh, french..."
  315. [7/31/2013 1:05:49 AM] DBN: "Local neeews..."
  316. [7/31/2013 1:06:03 AM] Kara: "What are you looking for?"
  317. [7/31/2013 1:06:04 AM] Durk: Sabrina watches in amusement.
  318. [7/31/2013 1:07:32 AM] MR RAGE: Sep turns, hesitating to offer assistance. He seems more dumbstruck by the state Karinka's in.
  319. [7/31/2013 1:08:21 AM | Edited 1:09:21 AM] DBN: "This." She finally finds the right channel. Despite the time of day there's a live broadcast going on. Looks like protesters marching down the main street toward the OPUS building. They're shouting and holding signs. 'Children Aren't Soldiers!' 'Stop War Now!' 'Child Soldiers Aren't The Answer!' and more.
  320. [7/31/2013 1:09:01 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "Ah... Protesters?"
  321. [7/31/2013 1:09:50 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth stops eating her pizza, watching the TV. "...Oh." She pauses. "Would they hurt us?"
  322. [7/31/2013 1:10:43 AM] Elizabeth: "I mean, it wouldn't make sense, given their stance, but..." she pauses to take a bite of pizza. "How would they know who we are anyways if we're at a public school?"
  323. [7/31/2013 1:10:59 AM] DBN: "Seems theres a leak in the UN, telling people that we've got children piloting our war machines. The collective clenching of uptight assholes has got to be the density of a neutron star." she mutters.
  324. [7/31/2013 1:11:34 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "It's hard to believe that the UN would spill that." She is genuinly surprised by it. "We're sure they did?"
  325. [7/31/2013 1:12:07 AM] DBN: "We're worried some of them might try. Some of these people actually believe the Invaders are space travellers here to enlighten Humanity and we're murdering them."
  326. [7/31/2013 1:12:57 AM] MR RAGE: "On top of that, sometimes people hurt things without wanting or meaning to, when they're scared like this."
  327. [7/31/2013 1:13:19 AM] Kara: Kara blinks, "If only they knew..."
  328. [7/31/2013 1:13:27 AM] Elizabeth: "Hrmph. No way those things are here to enlighten us." She frowns, continuing to eat, muttering something about pain under her breath.
  329. [7/31/2013 1:15:20 AM] DBN: She turns off the television. "There will be S2 security agents hidden around the school, and we're doing everything we can to keep your names secret. For now it's best not to mention what you do for OPUS."
  330. [7/31/2013 1:15:59 AM] Kara: Kara bites her cheek and nods, "I suspect I'll be working on the base? Playing drop off and pickup?
  331. [7/31/2013 1:16:39 AM | Edited 1:17:20 AM] DBN: "We'll have things for you to do. So much paperwork involved with that last operation you know..."
  332. [7/31/2013 1:17:03 AM] Durk: Sabrina stalks off to her room. "Fucking school..."
  333. [7/31/2013 1:17:28 AM] Kara: Kara lets out a sigh, letting down her guard with the Commander for a moment, "Always fun." She smiles at the pilots, something moving behind her neck and under her hair, "You all get to have fun at... school."
  334. [7/31/2013 1:18:08 AM] Elizabeth: Elizabeth sighs, "Well, better than doing nothing all day I suppose..." She finishes the last slice and grabs a napkin to wipe the grease off of her fingers before heading back to her room and the book.
  335. [7/31/2013 1:18:18 AM] MR RAGE: Septimius wears a warm smile. "It'll be fun."
