  1. [22:21] <huh> [The burning sun of the wasteland shines on a hulking figure making its was across the vast expanses of deserted land. The Dominis was the life's work of some old and brilliant scientist. When he died, he bequeathed the masterpiece to Alexi. The reason why is unknown. In fact, even the finer points of the Dominis' construction is unknown.
  2. [19:25] <huh>   [Rather, it looks like the earth beneath an old, ruined castle grew giant legs and ran off, carrying the castle with it. Even though the castle is in disrepair, with large portions simply mising or open to the harsh elements, it makes a fitting home for Alexi.
  3. [19:27] <huh>   [Alexi himself is said to be a rough punk with no redeeming qualities by those who don't know him. Those who are closer to him know that even though that's true, he's not a bad person. Constantly looking for a fight, but a self-proclaimed protector of the weak.
  4. [19:28] <huh>   [Through various means and devices, Alexi has come into a small staff to accompany him on his journies. And so his chronicle begins...]
  5. [19:28] <huh>   [Dawn of day 1! Start!]
  6. [19:37] * [BNS]Emeralda is already in the bathroom, prepping herself for the day's activities. Just because the world's gone to hell doesn't mean a woman shouldn't look proper.
  7. [19:38] * [huh]Alexi    opens the door.
  8. [19:39] <[huh]Alexi>    Emeralda! Good morning!
  9. [19:39] <[BNS]Emeralda> Good morning, cousin~
  10. [19:39] * [par]Alexandria   is sprawled out on the floor atop a tower sleeping "on watch." She snores loudly as she hugs her shotgun
  11. [19:39] * [BNS]Emeralda is pinning her hair up
  12. [19:41] <[huh]Alexi>    We should be arriving in the next town late today or tomorrow.
  13. [19:41] <[huh]Alexi>    Anything we need?
  14. [19:41] * Averile   is stuck inside her own room...
  15. [19:41] <Averile>   Ugh... damn bandages aren't staying on...
  16. [19:41] <[BNS]Emeralda> Provisions, supplies, toiletries... the usual. Always with the usual...
  17. [19:42] * [BNS]Emeralda sighs wistfully
  18. [19:42] * [huh]Alexi    pumps his fist.
  19. [19:42] <[Rut]Kay>  Remark on the low reserves of petroleum gel currently in storage.
  20. [19:42] <[huh]Alexi>    This time, the town's sure to have some troubled damsels!
  21. [19:42] * Averile   finds some random strings and manages to keep it on over her eye, she nods happily and goes forth to greet the dead with lead!
  22. [19:43] <Averile>   [*day.. I swear.. it was day.]
  23. [19:46] <[huh]Alexi>    Right?
  24. [19:47] * [par]Alexandria   loses grip on her gun in her sleep and it slides down the ladder hole and blows open the door of the room
  25. [19:47] <[BNS]Emeralda> Oh cousin... you need to learn that even though the world might be a forsaken wasteland, it doesn't mean that everyone out there is so...
  26. [19:47] <[BNS]Emeralda> !!
  27. [19:47] <[huh]Alexi>    Hm?
  28. [19:48] * [BNS]Emeralda turns to see the door blown off its hinges.
  29. [19:48] <[huh]Alexi>    We're under attack! Alright!
  30. [19:48] <Averile>   ...them again?...oh god..
  31. [19:48] <[BNS]Emeralda> Oh my.
  32. [19:48] * [huh]Alexi    rushes out.
  33. [19:48] * Averile   pops out of her room, ready for action, she peers around, combat ready.
  34. [19:48] * [Rut]Kay  follows, stiffly.
  35. [19:49] * [BNS]Emeralda hurriedly finishes pinning her hair, then spins around to grab her own rifle and follows Alexi
  36. [19:49] <Averile>   ... Who is it this time?...
  37. [19:49] <[huh]Alexi>    Who's there?!
  38. [19:49] * [par]Alexandria   wakes up with a yawn and a scratch of her butt
  39. [19:49] <[par]Alexandria>   "Huh?"
  40. [19:50] <[huh]Alexi>    Alex! Who's attacking?
  41. [19:50] <[Rut]Kay>  Declaration of combat readiness.
  42. [19:50] <[par]Alexandria>   "We're under attack? Who'd be dumb enough to attack us, big sis?"
  43. [19:51] * [par]Alexandria   stands up and stretches
  44. [19:51] * [BNS]Emeralda emerges from the top... and spots Alexandria... without her gun.
  45. [19:51] <[huh]Alexi>    ...
  46. [19:51] <[huh]Alexi>    Nobody's here.
  47. [19:51] <[huh]Alexi>    Come out, cowards!
  48. [19:51] <[BNS]Emeralda> Dear Sister, pray tell where is your gun?
  49. [19:51] * Averile   runs past Alexi, woosh!
  50. [19:51] <[huh]Alexi>    Fight me like men! Or women, if you're chicks!
  51. [19:52] <[par]Alexandria>   "Uh... it was just here. I always sleep with my gun at the ready just like you said, big sis."
  52. [19:52] <[Rut]Kay>  Suggestion of enacting regular patrols to supplement the lackluster tower watch.
  53. [19:53] * [par]Alexandria   pouts
  54. [19:53] <[BNS]Emeralda> But where is it /now/?
  55. [19:53] * [BNS]Emeralda crosses her arms and taps her foot at Alexandria
  56. [19:53] * [Rut]Kay  doesn't so much as glance at Alexandria as she rips on her.
  57. [19:54] * [par]Alexandria   looks around and then spots it at the base of the ladder. She points.
  58. [19:54] <[par]Alexandria>   "There it is!"
  59. [19:56] <[huh]Alexi>    Hm?
  60. [19:56] * [huh]Alexi    looks down.
  61. [19:56] <[BNS]Emeralda> ...oh, so that's what blew the tower door off its hinges. How lovely.
  62. [19:56] * Averile   stops..and hears this.
  63. [19:56] <Averile>   WHAT.
  64. [19:56] <[huh]Alexi>    So we're not being attacked?
  65. [19:56] <[Rut]Kay>  Reminder to keep the safety on at all times when not in use. Warning of a firearm's tendency to go off if mishandled.
  66. [19:56] <[huh]Alexi>    I guess that's good too.
  67. [19:56] * Averile   rushes back to them, heaving. Geez, she needs to work-out more.
  68. [19:57] <Averile>   What did you just say?
  69. [19:58] <[par]Alexandria>   "Safety? Which one is that? I think I took that out for the belt feeder."
  70. [19:58] <[Rut]Kay>  ...
  71. [19:58] <[huh]Alexi>    It probably wasn't too important.
  72. [19:58] * [Rut]Kay  turns to Alexi.
  73. [19:58] <[huh]Alexi>    THe belt feeder is just cool, though.
  74. [19:58] * [huh]Alexi    gives her a thumbs-up.
  75. [19:58] <Averile>   ....
  76. [19:59] * [par]Alexandria   grins
  77. [19:59] * Averile   sighs... and heaves the gun back over her small shoulders.
  78. [19:59] <[Rut]Kay>  Questioning of the master's choice in the distribution of lethal weaponry.
  79. [20:00] <[huh]Alexi>    It's fine, it's fine.
  80. [20:00] <[huh]Alexi>    She hasn't actually killed someone with it yet.
  81. [20:00] * [par]Alexandria   climbs down to retrieve her shotgun
  82. [20:00] <[huh]Alexi>    Well, anyone important.
  83. [20:00] <[par]Alexandria>   "Get back here killy, how many times have I told you to stop running away?"
  84. [20:00] <Averile>   Why this early in the morning... geez..
  85. [20:02] <[huh]Alexi>    Well, are we all up?
  86. [20:02] <[huh]Alexi>    Then breakfast! Breakfast!
  87. [20:02] <[par]Alexandria>   "Yay!"
  88. [20:02] <Averile>   ...who's.. *yawns* cooking?
  89. [20:03] * [huh]Alexi    ticks off on his fingers.
  90. [20:03] <[huh]Alexi>    Kay will.
  91. [20:05] <[BNS]Emeralda> Oh good, then I can go back to getting ready.
  92. [20:05] <Averile>   Thank god its not me this time.....
  93. [20:06] * [BNS]Emeralda slings her rifle over her shoulder, then climbs back down the ladder...
  94. [20:06] <[Rut]Kay>  Protest founded on my designation as a combat unit.
  95. [20:07] * [par]Alexandria   rests her shotgun over her shoulder and then heads out of the tower
  96. [20:07] <[Rut]Kay>  Recommendation of Alexandria's labor as compensation for inadequate performance.
  97. [20:07] <Averile>   ...lets try Kay's cooking then....
  98. [20:09] <Averile>   What says everyone?~
  99. [20:09] * [Rut]Kay  turns to Averile in a huff, though she remains as inexpressive as ever.
  100. [20:10] <[Rut]Kay>  Frustration over the present company's lack of attention.
  101. [20:10] <[huh]Alexi>    Kaaaay, c'mon.
  102. [20:12] <[Rut]Kay>  ... Reluctant acceptance of master Alexi's preferences. Snide remark on the likely quality of Alexandria's attempt at producing anything edible.
  103. [20:13] * [huh]Alexi    raps on her head.
  104. [20:13] * [par]Alexandria   already made her way to the bathroom and didn't hear kay's comment
  105. [20:13] <[huh]Alexi>    Complaining's not going to get it done any faster.
  106. [20:13] <Averile>   Oh!.. I want french toast...
  107. [20:17] <[Rut]Kay>  Disregard for Averile's order. Polite request to take leave.
  108. [20:17] <[huh]Alexi>    Fine, then.
  109. [20:17] * [huh]Alexi    slides down the ladder first.
  110. [20:17] * [Rut]Kay  curtsies so rigidly she could be mistaken for a mechanical theater puppet. Oh, wait.
  111. [20:17] <[huh]Alexi>    Emeralda, handle breakfast!
  112. [20:17] * [Rut]Kay  trots off towards the kitchen.
  113. [20:18] * [huh]Alexi    shouts in a carrying voice.
  114. [20:18] <Averile>   Nooo.. french toast....
  115. [20:18] <[huh]Alexi>    [scratch that last line]
  116. [20:22] * Averile   shivers..
  117. [20:22] <Averile>   Worms... again?
  118. [20:23] <[huh]Alexi>    They don't taste too bad.
  119. [20:24] * [Rut]Kay  enters and exits the room again, carrying a big slab of carcass from the aforementioned animal.
  120. [20:34] * [par]Alexandria   heads for the kitchen to eagerly refill her system by tearing into some meat
  121. [20:36] * Averile   sobs...
  122. [20:36] <Averile>   You know my stomach can't handle worms well.. it...comes back out...
  123. [20:37] * [Rut]Kay  enters the kitchen and slings the giant, cylindrical block of meat onto the grill with one arm. She then turns a flat 90 degrees, moves in front of the burner dials, turns 90 degrees again, and twists it to "high" in a single, swift rotation.
  124. [20:41] * [par]Alexandria   sits at the table to wait for the food
  125. [20:41] * Averile   is in fear now.. god... what should she do...
  126. [20:43] * [par]Alexandria   sniffs, she can smell the fear. Also meat, when is it going to be ready already
  127. [20:43] <[huh]Alexi>    Don't worry.
  128. [20:43] <[huh]Alexi>    You'll get used to it.
  129. [20:43] * [Rut]Kay  just stands there, staring straight forward at the worm steak (or perhaps the wall behind it).
  130. [20:44] <[Rut]Kay>  ...
  131. [20:46] * [Rut]Kay  abruptly rips the slab from the grill and drops it atop the empty plate on the center table. She hustles a bit providing dishes and eating utensils for those seated.
  132. [20:47] <[huh]Alexi>    Mmm.
  133. [20:49] * [huh]Alexi    cuts himself a piece.
  134. [20:49] * [par]Alexandria   tears into her piece with her hands
  135. [20:49] <Averile>   ....
  136. [20:49] <[Rut]Kay>  ... Attempt to assuage Averile's fears by reassuring her that thirty seconds is the proper cooking time for worm meat.
  137. [20:49] <Averile>   .....what.
  138. [20:50] * [Rut]Kay  stares at her, apparently trying to be comforting. She does not pull it off. At all.
  139. [20:51] * [par]Alexandria   stops eating for a second
  140. [20:51] * [huh]Alexi    eats it.
  141. [20:51] <[huh]Alexi>    It's fine.
  142. [20:51] <[par]Alexandria>   "is that how much you cooked it last time?"
  143. [20:51] <[huh]Alexi>    Good job, Kay.
  144. [20:51] * [Rut]Kay  nods.
  145. [20:53] * [par]Alexandria   thinks for a second and then shrugs. She goes back to eating
  146. [20:54] * Averile   begins eating it and tears are shed.
  147. [20:54] * [Rut]Kay  's meal is red and gooey on the inside. It's technically supposed to be, but...
  148. [20:55] * [huh]Alexi    nods as he puts down his fork.
  149. [20:55] <[huh]Alexi>    Wonderfully bland.
  150. [20:56] <[Rut]Kay>  ...
  151. [20:57] <[par]Alexandria>   "Filling!"
  152. [20:57] * [par]Alexandria   smiles
  153. [20:57] <[Rut]Kay>  Mild confusion over Averile's crying.
  154. [20:57] <[par]Alexandria>   "What?"
  155. [20:58] <[huh]Alexi>    Averile's just being stubborn.
  156. [20:58] * [par]Alexandria   looks over to Averile and pouts
  157. [20:58] <[par]Alexandria>   "What's wrong?"
  158. [20:59] <Averile>   ...urk!.. bathroom!
  159. [20:59] * Averile   pushes Alexandria out of the awy.
  160. [20:59] <[Rut]Kay>  ...
  161. [20:59] * [Rut]Kay  seems... hurt? Impossible to tell.
  162. [21:00] <[Rut]Kay>  ... Return to regular duties...
  163. [21:00] * [par]Alexandria   's stomach gurgles. Alex hits it and smiles to Kay
  164. [21:01] * [Rut]Kay  's tone is ever so slightly lower than normal. She give a tiny bow before leaving.
  165. [21:02] <[huh]Alexi>    See, now she's hurt Kay's feelings. Some people have no regard for others, I tell you..
  166. [21:04] <[par]Alexandria>   "She probably couldn't help herself. When worm's ready to go it doesn't like to wait."
  167. [21:05] * Averile   comes back some moments later, she might have missed Kay on the way, still feeling the pain but.. who knows.
  168. [21:05] <Averile>   Ooooh.....
  169. [21:07] <[huh]Alexi>    You alright?
  170. [21:08] <Averile>   ...I wasn...urk.. lying when I said.. worms...are.... oh god bad,...
  171. [21:09] <[huh]Alexi>    Aw, toughen up a little!
  172. [21:10] * [huh]Alexi    slaps her on the back.
  173. [21:10] * Averile   winces.
  174. [21:10] <Averile>   A-h.. stop..
  175. [21:14] * [par]Alexandria   frowns then runs for the bathroom
  176. [21:14] <[huh]Alexi>    You too?
  177. [21:14] * [huh]Alexi    sighs.
  178. [21:14] <[huh]Alexi>    Well, I liked it at least.
  179. [21:15] <[Rut]Kay>  ...
  180. [21:15] <Averile>   ...its not that its bad.. I told you.. my stomach.. hates....worms.
  181. [21:16] <[huh]Alexi>    Well, I guess you can't help it.
  182. [21:16] * [Rut]Kay  is staring at Alexi. She's apparently trying to hide behind the corner, but isn't leaning at all, leaving roughly half of her exposed and sticking out, wholly visible.
  183. [21:16] <[huh]Alexi>    It'll go away eventually, after enough worm meals.
  184. [21:17] <[huh]Alexi>    The real problem is that if you can't keep the worm down, you'll starve.
  185. [21:20] <[huh]Alexi>    ...
  186. [21:20] <[huh]Alexi>    Oh well!
  187. [21:20] <Averile>   It went down alright..
  188. [21:20] <[huh]Alexi>    You'll only have to go a day or two without food!
  189. [21:20] <Averile>   Straight through my system...
  190. [21:20] <[huh]Alexi>    Oh, that end?
  191. [21:20] <[huh]Alexi>    Well that's alright then.
  192. [21:21] <Averile>   ...
  193. [21:22] * Averile   sighs and gets a cup of water to rid herself of that taste.
  194. [21:22] * [par]Alexandria   returns
  195. [21:22] <[par]Alexandria>   "Yeah just like I said... doesn't wait for you."
  196. [21:23] * [Rut]Kay  lingers.
  197. [21:24] * Averile   pats Kay.
  198. [21:24] <Averile>   Its not you, its the worms in my system.
  199. [21:27] <[par]Alexandria>   "So we're going to be supplied by tomorrow?"
  200. [21:27] <[huh]Alexi>    Yeah. You did well, Kay.
  201. [21:28] <[huh]Alexi>    Uh, tomorrow at the latest.
  202. [21:28] <[huh]Alexi>    Unless I'm off somewhere.
  203. [21:29] <Averile>   ...where could you be going this time?
  204. [21:30] <[huh]Alexi>    No, I mean unless my course plotting is off.
  205. [21:30] <[huh]Alexi>    I'm not planning on going off on an adventure for another couple days as of yet.
  206. [21:32] <[par]Alexandria>   "It'll be nice to be in town again."
  207. [21:32] <Averile>   And on solid ground..
  208. [21:32] * Averile   sighs.
  209. [21:33] <[huh]Alexi>    This is solid ground.
  210. [21:33] * [huh]Alexi    stomps.
  211. [21:34] <Averile>   Solid, non-moving ground that comes on this thing we call a planet..
  212. [21:36] <[huh]Alexi>    This castle is on genuine dirt and everything though!
  213. [21:37] <Averile>   Its not that..
  214. [21:40] * [Rut]Kay  steps out from around the corner finally and starts collecting plates to place in the sink.
  215. [21:41] <[huh]Alexi>    Then I don't see your problem.
  216. [21:43] <[par]Alexandria>   "Eh she's just got cabin fever."
  217. [21:43] * [par]Alexandria   stretches
  218. [21:43] <Averile>   ...its something like... breathing. I mean you can breath in water if you'd like but that's not good for you.
  219. [21:44] <[huh]Alexi>    You can go outside if you'd like.
  220. [21:44] <[huh]Alexi>    Just beware of sandstorms.
  221. [21:44] <[par]Alexandria>   "Oh we can do tower watch together!"
  222. [21:47] <Averile>   ...maybe.
  223. [21:48] <[par]Alexandria>   "I'll be fun, miss Averile."
  224. [21:51] <[Rut]Kay>  Proposition that Averile need not get back on after stopping if she prefers it.
  225. [21:51] * Averile   nods...wait...and then turns to Kay's voice.
  226. [21:51] <Averile>   What?...
  227. [21:51] * [Rut]Kay  is washing the dishes.
  228. [21:52] <[huh]Alexi>    Now, you two, get along.
  229. [21:52] <[Rut]Kay>  Response in the affirmative.
  230. [21:55] <Averile>   yes...
