[07:40:50] GM: Okay, so, you have prepped for your joint op with the Kokiri Consubulary…and Sarah has pretty much gotten everyone sick and tired of all the SWAT Cat jokes…since, well, you are acting like a SWAT unit for … cats. Anyway…that niether here nor there. The operation begins normally enough, but then start to go down hill. Felled trees to hinder progress are booby trapped, then hover bike riding fundamentalists swoop in and chuck satchel charges and the off hover 'technical' makes a pass or two.
[07:41:08] 2Lt. Sarah: (( *smacks* lol ))
[07:41:14] 2Lt. Sarah: (( har har har ^_^ ))
[07:41:25] 2Lt. Sarah: (( she'd want the jet mostly ^_^ ))
[07:41:26] GM: ((yeah, you were thinking it…))
[07:41:43] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lols ))
[07:42:11] Dairugger: ((How many times did the TurboKat crash? How many times did Sarah's Beta?))
[07:42:37] GM: ((now that would be interestng to tally…))
[07:43:22] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol ))
[07:43:33] 2Lt. Sarah: (( the turbokat crashed a couple of times, and was annhilated once ))
[07:44:41] Capt Kain Crockett: ((I remember a synchrocannon to the beta once…))
[07:44:55] GM: ((yup, to the dome!))
[07:45:58] GM: Oky..
[07:47:36] GM: You, in your mecha are a few miles behind the 'front line' and can hear the chaos on the radio. nearby the Major in a command track is doing her best to control the situation. Tactiaclly, it doesnt look good, and she knows it.
[07:49:18] 2Lt. Sarah: (( yeah, the synchro was damned scary. :p :) The port/bail was funny though, for Anji catching her nekkid. Anyhows…. ^_^ ))
[07:49:27] Capt Kain Crockett: "Alright people. Pair off with your wingman, and do NOT split away from them. if we encounter multiple passages in the tunnels, wait for confirmation of location and intended route."
[07:50:03] 2Lt. Sarah: "Acknowledged…"
[07:50:14] Cpt. Aylanea: "Right."
[07:50:44] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " Got it "
[07:50:58] Major An'jhali: Well, lets get our men to the cave first. We're hung up here in the wood. They have the area well defended and my forces cant break thru. So, well, thats why you are here, as my ringers. I dont think they kow you are even here, so, if you could do me a big favor, and stomp on over there and introduce yourself…gunbarrel first.
[07:51:10] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Kain/Vit, Komi/Sarah, Nyx/Ay))
[07:51:27] Capt Kain Crockett: ((would be the way I'd do it…))
[07:51:29] Cpt. Aylanea: (( kk ^_^ ))
[07:51:52] Cpt. Aylanea: (( *hides behind Komi* j/k ))
[07:51:58] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( sounds good ))
[07:52:00] 2Lt. Sarah: (( *hides behind Komi* j/k ))
[07:52:06] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( lol ))
[07:52:11] Cpt. Aylanea: (( anyway ))
[07:52:21] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( hides infront of komi… wait confused lol ))
[07:53:04] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver takes up position on Kain's wing " lets fuck their world up !" laughing
[07:54:56] Capt Kain Crockett: "I should make a joke about condoms…"
[07:57:28] GM: okay…
[07:57:53] GM: you proceed, however you proceed towards the fray.
[07:59:03] GM: ahead of you are the Kokiri units, holding the line fending off rapid hit and run style attacks by hover bike and cyclone which dart in, take a few shots then fade.
[07:59:56] GM: every now and then a larger caliber weapon off the back of a 'technical' is fired to keep the KC forces' heads down while the fast movers retreat.
[08:00:31] GM: the area is wooded and the combat looks to be a stalemate, which for the defenders, is winning.
[08:02:16] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " what cowards, what ever happened to a strait fight, can't we just tourch the area and be done with it "
[08:03:15] Cpt. Aylanea looks around at the situation and sighs. "Suppose they want their forest intact, if too much fire goes on into it though, it'll be ruined anyway." She frowns.
[08:03:21] Capt Kain Crockett: "Alright everyone to your machines. And prepare to be a mini-Rain of Death."
[08:04:06] Capt Kain Crockett: "Strafe the bikes and then hit their heavy with out heavies. See who is heavier."
[08:04:50] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver rolls her eyes at that " got ya " prepping herself
[08:05:18] Cpt. Aylanea makes a slight face, but nods. "Acknowledged…"
[08:05:40] 2Lt. Sarah: "Understood."
[08:06:44] GM: Ahhh boob jokes!

[08:07:45] WO Febrith Nyx strafes with the 35mm Internals. [1d20+5] => [13,5] = (18)
[08:07:56] GM: However, while you dont hit any of them, they arent so stupid as to take the incoming 55mm rounds lightly.
[08:08:08] GM: [1d20+12] => [17,12] = (29)
[08:08:43] Capt. Komillia Maeless drops an 85 mm gunpod strafe on them. [1d20+10] => [10,10] = (20)

[08:09:44] GM: None of the fast movers are hit, but they do retreat hastily and the KC Forces see their morale lifted and cheer the unleashing of hell.
[08:10:14] 2Lt. Sarah strafes with her Gamma's GAU quickly. [1d20+8] => [6,8] = (14)
[08:10:17] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver follows suit opening up in suit with her 35mm internals [1d20+10+2] => [17,10,2] = (29)
[08:10:30] GM: As you advance steadily your sensors pick up a few technicals and dug in positions ahead of you.
[08:10:57] GM: Vittoria plasters a technical that was a little to late on the scoot after the shoot.
[08:12:03] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " this is too simple, should we circle around for another pass or do you think they got the hint? "
[08:13:44] 2Lt. Sarah: "They likely have heavier stuff deeper in the cave." She tries to sense for protoculture, to see if she can find anything bigger than their own equipment and the enemy cyclones. [1d20+5] => [8,5] = (13)
[08:13:48] Capt Kain Crockett: "Circle to hit the technicals, and then blow the lid off their 'fortress'."
[08:14:06] Capt Kain Crockett strafes the technics. [1d20+11] => [14,11] = (25)
[08:14:10] GM: Sarah you pick up a trio of PC signatures approaching.

[08:15:21] 2Lt. Sarah: (( GAU-11 ))
[08:15:35] GM: you likewise shred one, as a pair of hover bikes swoop in with satchel charges one at kain and one and Vitt [1d20+9] => [11,9] = (20) and [1d20+9] => [11,9] = (20) (you are at -4 to dodge such a small target)
[08:16:29] GM: ((Wooo ooo ooo here come the ewoks!))

[08:18:27] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " Kain you ok! that looks like it rocked you a bit "
[08:18:49] GM: Damage to Kains leg [110-225] => -115

[08:19:48] GM: and Ay likewise hits
[08:20:54] Capt Kain Crockett: ((can Kain even stay airborne?))
[08:21:47] GM: unless you actually told me you were airborne, (and no one did) you made a ground assault, mainly becuase with the distances involved and the tree canopy, you'd have an incredibly hard time hitting anything.
[08:22:13] Capt Kain Crockett: ((then Kain is dead in the water without a leg…))
[08:22:26] Cpt. Aylanea: (( weren't the numbers switched around? ))
[08:22:31] GM: ((Delta right? not a Gamma?))
[08:22:52] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Kain only has training for the Gamma and Lightning.))
[08:22:52] GM: ((if he's in a Gamma he has 115 MD left to his lower leg))

[09:13:35] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " i cant believe that one actually hit me with a bag of shit " frowns

[09:16:45] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " At any rate i think im just about ready for another training sorte with Lady Ishida " she giggles
[09:17:19] 2Lt. Sarah: "That went more easily than expected…" She pauses as Ay climbs in behind her. "Overall anyway."

[09:19:20] Capt Kain Crockett: "It's almost like a EPETA rally in here. Right down to the abuse."
[09:20:00] GM: The Maj lets you know that the area is secured and that her folks can take it from here. She is very apprecitive and based by the scars your mecha have recieved, she, and all her men know they would never have been able to take the compound without massiv eloss of life, or relying on units from Garuda, by which time these guys would have packed up shop…
[09:21:17] GM: ((EPETA lol, 'Occupy Kokiri!))
[09:22:25] Cpt. Aylanea: "I'm not sure yet, I'll find out later."

[09:27:23] Cpt. Aylanea heads to medical once on ship, quietly, worried.
[09:27:30] WO Febrith Nyx: "This is what rights activists look like huh? Surprised you didn't just execute them all on sight. The sheer anarchy they'd want to cause is not worth letting them live."
[09:27:45] GM: And after a few hours Vitt and Ishida return all sweaty.
[09:27:55] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver is soar as fuck from yet another ass pounding
[09:28:12] Major An'jhali: They arent rights activists!
[09:28:59] Major An'jhali: We Garudans that dont use a mask to breath our toxic air to live are theri enemy becuase they dont think we are conservative enough, not, I dont know, pious enough.
[09:30:08] Major An'jhali: They feel that you have to breath the air of garuda to be one with the Hin, and that those who arent 'One with the Hin' are , well, humans had a term, that we are 'worse then Hitler'.
[09:30:23] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver now knows what Chaisey Lane feels like after a prison gangbang scene
[09:30:42] Major An'jhali: ((so, do your farts sound like yawns?))
[09:30:50] WO Febrith Nyx: "Another guy that should have been shot on sight."
[09:31:02] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( idk dont understand them their in whale tongue ))
[09:32:45] Major An'jhali: Ay, you get looked over, and it's nothing life threatening
[09:32:57] GM: …what she said
[09:33:07] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( ^_^ lol ))
[09:33:15] GM: yay alias fail
[09:34:15] Capt Kain Crockett: ((who PMed ya?))
[09:34:41] Capt. Komillia Maeless returns the Bioroid. "Thanks for letting me relive a few memories."
[09:34:58] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " im not far behind you Lady Ishida, once i have this delta down pat your in trouble " she says smiling
[09:36:52] GM: After having returned to the Havoc. You are informed that, A: the investigation hit a snag on Kokiri becuase apparently one of the 'fundamentalists' is the offspring of a Clan Elder, and siad clan elder pushed his weight around and got a good deal of the fundamentalists extradited back to garuda (where it just so happens, they do have a lot of support amongst the toxic air breating folks (there are some that are all, whatever floats their boat, buts most are apathetic, while another significant portion of the population agrees with the fundamentalists view point)
[09:38:00] Cpt. Aylanea relaxes when she hears its not something that will cause worse.
[09:38:11] 2Lt. Sarah frowns at the news on the investigation.
[09:38:21] 2Lt. Sarah: (( stick Ay's before return to havoc please ))
[09:39:02] Capt Kain Crockett rolls his eyes.
[09:39:10] GM: B: the Clan Elders have, via our Chain of Command, has had Ishida browbeat and told to 'mind your fucking business!' whilst C: the Govoner has been recalled to garuda to testify before the Elder Council.
[09:39:15] Capt Kain Crockett: "Have I ever told you how much I hate politicians?"
[09:41:28] LtJG Rain Silver: " It helps to remember that their games is a much nastier one, their only piece on a chess board is a black king in a sea of white pawns. An occational rook or bishop here and there. Upset the wrong pieces and its check mate. I wish Vittoria would understand that, maybe she wouldnt hate dad so much then " frowns
[09:43:38] Capt. Komillia Maeless: "Then why don't they change the game? And wouldn't they all be technically kings?"
[09:45:46] LtJG Rain Silver: " They cant because their kings, the weakest piece on the board, even a pawn has more power then a king. Many politicians are trapped in the positions and only trying to survive the game. Others work for the people, the pawns, but you cant please everyone " smiles slightly " Komi if i were to put you on a chess board i'd think you to be a black knight, you dislike the kings, but you serve them well and in your own way "
[09:47:26] LtJG Rain Silver: " this is true i think for anyone who serves in the military and still has enough sense to pay attention to the game "
[09:49:58] 2Lt. Sarah listens quietly, still frowning softly.
[09:50:11] LtJG Rain Silver: " Right now i believe Ishida is trying to play the role of the Queen on the board, I just hope she isnt sacrificed by a smart king "
[09:52:20] Capt Kain Crockett: "I prefer games I can win without sacrificing pieces, but as much as I hate to admit it, it is sometimes necessary. Chess takes it to a bit of an extreme though."
[09:52:52] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver leans against the doorway " dear god tell me your not listening to this babble, see the senitor has filled your head with chinese checkers, anyone want a stiff drink i have a few bottles tucked away, figure we could use em " she winks
[09:54:13] 2Lt. Sarah glances up at Vittoria, and shrugs. "Just staying with the others. And wishing for a simpler life like I… used to have, once."
[09:54:53] Capt Kain Crockett: "Yes, anything to get the chess out. It's making my vision plaid."
[09:56:29] 2Lt. Sarah nods.
[09:56:50] Cpt. Aylanea giggles and nods. "Yeah, heavy stuff." She shrgus. "Sounds like more fun having a drink and doing other stuff."
[09:57:25] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " heh, dont blame you I'll stick to classic video games, you know cheesy diologue, craptacular graphics… wait i just discribed the last ten minutes of chess " grabbing a few bottles out of her room and taking them to the loung
[09:58:25] WO Febrith Nyx: "Except less brains, more reflexes."
[09:58:31] Cpt. Aylanea snickers and nods.
[09:58:47] 2Lt. Sarah: "Video games are always fun, yep." She grins.
[09:59:39] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver puts down 3 unmarked bottles of dark liquer " theres a few things i know very well " putting out a few glasses " and thats my liquer hope back water shine suits ya, nothing like the home made good stuff "
[09:59:39] That's the Tab key, Dave
[10:00:12] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " I only play the oldies, something about the 90's bet earth was fun back then would have loved to have seen that "
[10:00:48] Capt Kain Crockett laughs.
[10:01:00] GM: ((oh boy, here we go))
[10:01:05] Capt Kain Crockett: "I had a cousin who won't play games laters than 1994."
[10:01:50] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver fixes everyone a drink " here's to 94 the cut off to the greats "
[10:02:06] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver gulps down her drink " any reasons a good one " smiling
[10:02:06] 2Lt. Sarah raises her eyebrows at that. "Hm, think most of the ones I've played are newer than that." She shrugs. "I should look at older ones sometime, if I can find em."
[10:03:06] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " i have an old saga, tho i kind of had to hardwire it into my monitors in my room, dont think the damage controlmen on board would like seeing that "
[10:04:07] WO Febrith Nyx: "I think we can compensate them for it. Aren't there any virtual consoles that play these things?"
[10:05:32] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " I'm sure there are but lord only knows where to find them "
[10:06:07] 2Lt. Sarah: "I'll dig around and see if I can find out something about it, there should be."
[10:06:57] WO Febrith Nyx pulls up a computer pad and does some research in finding them and the best arches of the games. [1d100] =>  = (2) vs 83
[10:07:00] GM: As you 'splice the mainbrace' and toast, of all things…video games. A distress beacon is picked up by the bridge, at which point the ship is set to Condition Two readiness.
[10:07:03] LtJG Rain Silver: " I have the old Analoge Cable hook up still, and the audio video jacks i just whired into my smart cable and use it that way "
[10:07:40] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: (alias fail :P )
[10:07:42] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " I have the old Analoge Cable hook up still, and the audio video jacks i just whired into my smart cable and use it that way "
[10:08:54] 2Lt. Sarah nods at that and blinks up. "Utoh…" She frowns.
[10:08:58] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver jumps too spilling her drink "fuck!" frowns "err damn it. always the worst times "
[10:09:49] Capt Kain Crockett: "I hate life sometimes…
[10:10:03] Capt Kain Crockett puts down the drink and reports to the ready room."
[10:10:11] GM: Condition Two: Threat probable, but not present.
[10:10:27] GM: FYI
[10:10:36] LtJG Rain Silver: (( still gotta ready ^_^ ))
[10:11:05] LtJG Rain Silver heads for the bridge to assist there
[10:11:35] 2Lt. Sarah heads up as well.
[10:12:08] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( :P brb again ~_~ ))
[10:12:36] GM: As Rain enters the bridge he notes the subdued chatter of all hands doing their jobs with brevity and precision. The lights are at alert red and the Colonel and her XO are standing next to the master plot looking over a few glowing icons.
[10:15:08] Capt. Komillia Maeless puts her drink away, but lounges cycling through for the latest otaku magazines.
[10:16:02] GM: Luckily for Komi, the Aquila colony has a thriving menga and otaku industry…
[10:17:32] GM: Well sarah is on the bridge, and sees what I wrote for Rain…
[10:17:35] GM: So…
[10:18:03] 2Lt. Sarah: (( nod ))
[10:18:41] LtJG Rain Silver checks with (whoever has his station when he's not on duty lol " whats going on I rushed up ass soon as we got the alert "
[10:18:52] LtJG Rain Silver: (( :P as* not ass lol ))
[10:18:52] GM: As Rain enters one of the other comm-techs lets Anji know, and she points towards an open terminal.
[10:19:12] LtJG Rain Silver: (( ah k nm lol i take the empty terminal ))
[10:19:19] Cpt. Aylanea heads down to check on a delta for herself, quickly, to make sure she's ready, sighing at her last two mechanized outings, and her performance. Once she's made sure of that, she hits the simulator, hoping to not make it three in a row.
[10:21:04] LtJG Rain Silver checks over the data coming in on the terminal " What exactly is going on Mam, I rushed up as soon as the alert sounded "
[10:21:14] Capt Kain Crockett looks over any sitrep data availible to him in the ready rooms.
[10:21:30] WO1 Summerwind answeres without takingher eyes off her screen.
[10:22:16] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver joins up with the others in the ready room " Good thing we didnt get very deep in that bottle " she frowns sarcasim in her tone
[10:23:34] WO1 Summerwind: Golf Two (Ghost Drone) picked up a distress beacon at the far end of it's scanners. There was a voice message accompaniying it, but both the beacon and distress call were cut off shorly afterwards. We've turned towards and are on an intercept course.
[10:24:15] WO1 Summerwind answers in hushed tones.
[10:26:05] LtJG Rain Silver: [1d100] =>  = (8) vs 91% comp op [1d100] =>  = (58) vs 91% tyrolian lang [1d100] =>  = (17) vs 60% RSI [1d100] =>  = (37) vs 65% AEW [1d100] =>  = (9) vs 55% crypto [1d100] =>  = (16) vs 55% laser comm [1d100] =>  = (34) vs 59% intel [1d20] =>  = (5) perception [1d100] =>  = (8) vs 45% detect ambush [1d100] =>  = (24) vs 30% detect concealment (for anything whatsover that should come through on his monitors regarding the situation ^_^ )
[10:26:35] LtJG Rain Silver: [1d100] =>  = (3) vs 85% radeo basic too :P
[10:26:36] WO1 Summerwind: ((but for the prec…stright flush))
[10:27:13] LtJG Rain Silver: (( and if i roll anything else it will be a strait WTF! ^_^ ))
[10:28:34] LtJG Rain Silver: " I'll try to gather what i can, Did we gather anything from the distress beacon ? a message or anything? "
[10:30:44] GM: As the Havoc closes in on the source of the transmission Rain interrogates the feed they do have as well as all the new data coming in. It is Tyrolian, and the dialect is recognizable, to be blunt, it's a pirate accent, arrr. The message was apparently sent by a Taul Detral, (or, at least the communications array the sent the message was from a taul Detral, never can tell these days). At the very far end of Golf 2's scanner range, you can detect the engine noise of a Taul and you also notice a mass shadow behind or otherwise on top of the Taul.
[10:31:48] GM: Anji confirms your finding and passes that up the chain and the Col puts the ship to Condition 1
[10:34:23] 1st Lt. Vittoria Silver: " I dont quite understand the distress call, It's Tyrolian but i believe they sound like pirates. I'm going to keep on top of them and try to figure out that shadow " (can i make out a siloet? i know i probably spelled that all kinds of fubar lol )
[10:34:39] LtJG Rain Silver: " I dont quite understand the distress call, It's Tyrolian but i believe they sound like pirates. I'm going to keep on top of them and try to figure out that shadow " (can i make out a siloet? i know i probably spelled that all kinds of fubar lol )
[10:34:41] GM: ((I know what you meant!)
[10:34:47] LtJG Rain Silver: (alias fail lol twice now :P ))
[10:35:06] GM: ((once more and I demote you to Sarah))
[10:35:13] Cpt. Aylanea: (( rofl ))
[10:35:20] LtJG Rain Silver: (( lol ))
[10:35:34] Cpt. Aylanea curses and heads to her fighter quickly.
[10:35:52] GM: roll RSI, detect Conceal, intell and perc
[10:35:57] GM: ((just those))
[10:36:56] LtJG Rain Silver: [1d100] =>  = (28) vs 60% RSI [1d100] =>  = (3) vs 30% concealment [1d100] =>  = (18) vs 59% intel [1d20] =>  = (19) perception (closes eyes)
[10:37:14] Capt Kain Crockett: ((something is munching on pirates? I'm tempted to just leave it be.))
[10:37:26] Cpt. Aylanea: (( wow. :D ))
[10:37:27] LtJG Rain Silver: (( lol ))
[10:37:38] GM: ((Royal Flush))
[10:37:59] LtJG Rain Silver: (( gonna close my eyes from now on and hit roll ^_^ count to 3 then open seems to be working lol ))
[10:39:15] LtJG Rain Silver: (( not all pirates are bad sure we'll run into privateers at some point ^_^ ))
[10:39:41] GM: You are able to make out two ships, the Taul, and what looks like another Taul Class. You are still to far for any positive identification, and, about 20,000 miles before the Havoc sensors can get within range to run an ID the second ship you detected lights up the sensors like a christmas tree as it folds out. You can tell by the signature that whatever that ship is, it mounts a SNAP Drive.
[10:41:43] GM: ((and by now ALL of you should know what a SNAP drive is))
[10:43:01] LtJG Rain Silver: " Mam the other ship appeared to be another Taul class though I couldnt identify it it. It was equipped with a SNAP Drive. " (other ship still there alive? or was it destroyed prior to the fold or did it go with it lol )
[10:43:21] GM: ((the other ship is still there, and it is drifting.
[10:45:05] 2Lt. Sarah frowns.
[10:45:25] WO Febrith Nyx wonders into the ready room with Kain.
[10:45:42] Capt Kain Crockett: ((not really much any of my characters can do.))
[10:45:53] GM: ((dont worry))
[10:46:18] GM: ((Ima call it soon, and I dunno, mayhpas Nyx will be of use next session, kekek))
[10:46:47] 2Lt. Sarah: (( eep ehehehe ))
[10:47:17] Cpt. Aylanea heads to the ready room with condition 1.
[10:49:54] GM: As you approach a pair of Ghosts are sent ahead and they send back pictures of a pirate Taul Detral, based on the markings, belonging to one of the bands that plyed the lanes between Kokiri and Garuda until the Havoc ruied their millenium. (which is odd since the Havoc is patrolling the Kokiri Setisar lane currently)
[10:49:56] LtJG Rain Silver runs scans of the Toul for signs of life [1d100] =>  = (53) RSI 60% [1d100] =>  = (23) Radeo Basic 85% [1d20] =>  = (2) perception [1d100] =>  = (13) intelegence 59%
[10:51:49] GM: The ship is active, that is to say it has power. Her engines are at idle as is her reactor. She is not emitting any signals and there appears to be no current signs of damage (it's an old ship so yes, there are the dents and dings and general millinium falcon beaten hull going on.
[10:53:09] GM: any final questions before we knock off?
[10:53:21] Capt Kain Crockett: No.
[10:53:48] 2Lt. Sarah gets ready to do her best admiral ackbar impression shortly, depending :p
[10:53:54] 2Lt. Sarah: nope, no questions
[10:54:10] GM: ((hands her some bug eye goggles and oven mitts))
[10:54:21] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:54:50] GM: And shame on you Sarah, you went to the bridge, and didnt even ask a SOUL 'hey, whats going on?"
[10:54:59] GM: Boo hiss
[10:55:13] GM: grr bite bite
[10:56:44] 2Lt. Sarah: eep
[10:58:16] 2Lt. Sarah: sowwie :(
[10:58:23] 2Lt. Sarah: thought she could pick it up listening and paying attention :p
[10:58:33] 2Lt. Sarah: :p
[10:58:52] LtJG Rain Silver: ^_^
[10:59:02] 2Lt. Sarah: rather than, y'know, bothering someone who's already busy?
[10:59:05] GM: she could, but come on, she has the inside track, hello, Ishida…standing right there!
[10:59:27] LtJG Rain Silver: should nag the XO like a crazy exwife lol
[10:59:40] Capt Kain Crockett: kekeke
[11:00:16] LtJG Rain Silver: after all exhusbands dont nag, we take it out on the dog by naming it levi and kicking it when it rains lol
[11:00:34] 2Lt. Sarah: lol
[11:00:45] 2Lt. Sarah: especially her, she's the busiest one with the least time
[11:00:46] 2Lt. Sarah: lol
[11:00:56] 2Lt. Sarah: anyhows. hehehe
[11:00:56] LtJG Rain Silver: ^_^
[11:02:32] GM: so, what I'm reading is actually 'any excuse not to talk to her'
[11:02:42] LtJG Rain Silver: lol
[11:02:49] 2Lt. Sarah: …
[11:03:14] GM: anyway, Im not gonna rub salt into the wound lol
