Time for a new thread, number 34!

Guide to the Clubhouse / Treehouse / Sereni-Tree Threads:
http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=11&t=11877


http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=11&t=14277
This thread includes the latest version of "TheRealMe's Guide to the Sereni-Tree" near its top. In the crew list, nowever, note that all the clones (including the Rat-clone) are now gone, as are the Malcolmettes and SoulofSerenity. From the Arkham adventure, we have added the Phantom and perhaps NoSkillz and his tiger. I don’t think we picked up anyone else, though Bride7 made a re-appearance.


Following is the summary of the previous thread at
http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=11&t=14617

(Interim Summary)

After SoulofSerenity sacrificed himself to save the rest of us from the Madness of Arkham, the survivors returned to the Sereni-Tree in order to recover and to mourn our friend.

During the evacuation from the Arkham, Jake7 clearly did not trust the somewhat psychotic Bride7, who had taken to following TheRealMe around. TheRealMe, however, protested that we had not actually caught her eating anybody, so we really shouldn’t kick her off the ship. Jake7 seemed unimpressed by this logic.

PsychicRiver recovered Soul's possessions and gifted them to CallMeSerenity.

Soul’s body, recovered by Jazaf, was frozen and stored in the Infirmary’s cryo-lab.

The Phantom hovered around the Sereni-Tree, mysteriously (and invisibly) watching our crew.

Static piloted the Sereni-Tree to overtake the shuttle Admiral Nelson, which had contained ThatWeirdGirl and one of the Rats. When Static and TheRealMe boarded that shuttle, they found it empty, except for two piles of dust! That meant that both the ThatWeirdGirl and the Rat aboard were clone-beings that had since dissolved! We knew where the real Rat was (he collected the other Rat’s clone-dust, by the way), but where was the real ThatWeirdGirl?

The only conclusion that we could come to was that the real ThatWeirdGirl had been mistaken for the EvilWeirdGirl created during the time of the Dark Soul, that very being who had suffered a terrible head wound and had been frozen in cryo-sleep. So the person we thought was the EvilWeirdGirl must have been the true ThatWeirdGirl, and the WeirdGirl we had been living with for some time was an evil imposter! (Confused yet?)

In any case, our ThatWeirdGirl-like-being required brain surgery. With Doctor SimonWho missing and our two Simon-clones dissolved to dust, TheRealMe suggested that we wait, since his own medical expertise had just risen to the point of the successful application of band-aids. Yet SimonWho did not return, even when we pressed the Big Red Button that he set up to summon himself.

TheRealMe went to the Dream Machine created long ago by ManiacNumberOne, and used it to download the stored record of SimonWho’s medical expertise into his own head. Using this borrowed knowledge, TheRealMe performed a successful operation to restore ThatWeirdGirl to normal. After the operation, TheRealMe collapsed, American mind overcome by latent Britishisms.

Doctor SimonWho picked that moment to return, and started to treat both of them, along with Montanagirl’s help. Then Monkeytail, former cabana boy, assaulted SimonWho in a misguided attempt to protect TheRealMe and ThatWeirdGirl.

ThatWeirdGirl awoke, but she has no idea what has happened in the last five or six months.

By this time, The Head of Succatash has undocked Soul’s ship, the Destiny’s Shadow, from the Sereni-Tree and has wandered off into the black, perhaps taking with him folks who are not too keen on staying.

Safeat2nd and CastIronJack took the shuttle General Grant to Boros to run some errands. There they met an unpleasant fellow who has an interest in the Sereni-Tree or someone on it.

And we STILL have no idea where Emma is!

The brute smirks back at his two hulking cronies, “Well then, Hugo and Gordo here will have to persuade you real ungentle like.” As if on cue, the two grin and crack their knuckles.

“Hey Safe, isn’t there a leash law in this town?” Jack jerks a thumb towards Hugo and Gordo. He turns to the bald man. “Remember, a conscientious pet owner stoops and scoops.”

The two thugs growl and take a step forward. The bald man puts out his arms holding the men behind him. Safe chooses this moment to act. He lashes out. His boot catching the bald man square in the chest, knocking him backwards into the two thugs.

Safe turns and grabs Jack, who is in the middle of drawing his gun, by the shoulder. “Not now Jack, too many people”. The two run, weaving their way through the crowd.

“Safe, isn’t this running away?”

“No, it’s strategic maneuvering… now just shut up and run Jack.”

By the time the goons regain their balance, Safe and Jack have put a goodly distance between them and the chase is over almost before it began. Hugo raises his gun, intending to fire off a shot to clear the crowds when the bald man grabs his gun arm and hisses “not now you idiot”. The bald man nods his head in the direction of two passing Alliance soldiers.

Dr Whom, I need to ask...

*she trails off as she sees the strange scene before her. SW and TRM unconscious in beds, Static comforting a shivering and disoriented looking TWG.*

What on earth? TWG! You're back!

TheRealMe suddenly sits upright in the med-bed, gasping, eyes wide. “God save the Queen!”

He next looks around, confused. “Oh, hello, Serenity, Montanagirl, Monkeytail, SimonWho… And ThatWeirdGirl! You actually survived that operation! Uh… I mean, it’s so good to see you up and around. I’m guessing that you might need to be bought up to date. Hmmm…”

TheRealMe hops out of bed. “Let’s see… There was the evil of the Dark Soul and the struggle against our dark selves, resting amongst Dandelions, Piffleponies and Pifflepony races, Reaver madness, a Firefly belonging to SoulofSerenity, multiple alternate realities (including Static’s Dark Tower) that lay at the center of the Madness of Arkham, and.. uh.. the return of ThatWeirdGirl. I think that’s about all.

TheRealMe looks startled.

“Oh, and I’m afraid SoulofSerenity is no more.”

STATIC


The Gunslinger snaps his head around and glares at TRM. TRM fidgets slightly as the ice blue eyes bore through him.

"One would think that one might be a bit more delicate with such news."

Static's voice is very cold, and very soft. He glances at ThatWeirdGirl briefly and pats her gently on the knee, and without another word, turns and walks out of the Infirmary.

TheRealMe glances sheepishly at Static.

"Uh, right! But when you think about it, she hardly knew the guy!"

Then he considers Serenity's announcement.

"Well, if it is ThatWeirdGirl's birthday, then we must have a shindig suitable as BOTH a welcome back party AND a birthday party! In my judgement, there has been too much doom and gloom on the Sereni-Tree of late. It is time to relax and have some fun!"

TheRealMe turns to Mai.

"Mai, as cruise director, can you tell us of any pleasant planets nearby where we could take a little vacation?"

TheRealMe turns to XanderLHarris.

"Ash, we need your powers as the Shindig Goddess to make this the best party ever! This will be the perfect way to open festivities for the entire holiday season!"

PHANTOM


In the infirmary, he watches as one of them returns to the fold, and he cannot help but smile, and the happiness he feels is the first emotion he has been able to identify. Happiness. It is strange, but it brings warmth that he was not aware he could feel.

So he continues watching, stil unsure of why he is here, but if the happiness he feels is any indication, he's in the right place.

Lush,jungle like surroundings. Including the largest known waterfall in the system, several natural hot springs, and unexplored caves.

Meanwhile, back on Boros....

Safe and Jack skid out of the terminal onto the dusty streets of Boros. The city resembles an eclectic mix of ramshackle rundown buildings and high tech new skyscrapers. The overall impression of the city is that the new is rising out of the old.

Jack looks back into the terminal, “I think we lost ‘em”.

Safe starts walking down the narrow dusty street, “Still not a good idea the wait around for 'em to catch-up.”

Safe and Jack step to the side as a bicycle drawn rickshaw rattles past. “Who do you think he was referring to when he said her? And why’s he lookin’ for her?” Jack asks as he falls back in step with Safe.

“Judging by the way he was fondling that scar, I say our mystery woman gave it to him. I wonder if she gave him any others.”

Jack snickers, “Well I sure ain’t volunteering to look fer ‘em”. “How are we gonna figure out who she is?”

“Lets look at what we know. She obviously gave him at least one scar that we know of. The scar is clean, not jagged so that rules out a bullet, dagger or fingernails. In fact, the scar is too clean, almost... precise.” says Safe.

Jack stops walking. “Katanas?”

“That would fit the bill...” Safe stops and looks at Jack thoughtfully. “That narrows it down to Deuce or our winged warrior…”

“Butterfly Girl?” Jack interrupts.

“Serenity, I think it was,” Safe says. “That’s where my money lies. I’m pretty certain Deuce wouldn’t have left chubby alive. Then again, the Sereni-Tree is a big ship, an’ who knows how many other women on board wield katanas.”

“C’mon, lets keep movin’. We’ve still got business to attend to.”

“Hey, YOU!”

TheRealMe spins around, to find Trey behind her bar, carefully cleaning one of her mugs.

“It’s ALREADY after Thanksgiving. Don’t you think we should make the place a little more festive?”

TheRealMe nods in response. “Quite right, Bride3! I shall attend to this matter immediately! Sparky! Ebo Golem!”

TheRealMe wanders off to the cargo levels of the Sereni-Tree, followed by his two animated servants. He wanders about there until he finds the right spot, then he keys open some vaults.

“Here, you two take these decorations up to the Common Room and start setting them up. Uh, Sparky, you need to supervise, as the Ebo Golem is not that creative. I have something else to attend to.”

TheRealMe leaves the pair behind and goes to the secret hidden lab of the Insidious Doctor Rat. He breaks the seal on one of the cryo-chambers there, and gets a pair of tongs. Carefully, he pulls out a beaker containing some frozen green item.

“Boy, I am sure glad I saved this from last year! Where else would I find some mistletoe this deep in space?”

TheRealMe downs the eggnog in one gulp, tosses the glass over one shoulder, grabs ThatWeirdGirl, drags her to a spot underneath the mistletoe, and receives her generous !! Then he releases her.

“I’m sorry, TipPy, what was that? Oh, where are Mal-licious the Mistress Supreme and Captain Ebonezer?

“Well, Ebo doesn’t hang around with us much, anymore. I suspect that high school activites and various shenanigans with Ice Cream Guy are taking up her free time. However, she did give us a phone call during the NCBDMPP and ordered us to ‘laugh appropriately’ or somesuch. I actually talked to her myself. Other than that she drops by infrequently, mostly to announce to us that she has just dropped in.

“Mal-licious? Hmmm… Let me see… Well, she was quite happy to recover the original clubhouse when we returned to Earth-That-Still-Is – we have it stored inside one of our cargo bays, by the way – and then I built her a deluxe super-vibrating massage chair: The World’s Most Comfortable Chair! Say, I’m really not sure we’ve seen her since I put her in that. Oh, she DID return briefly to admonish Cozen for creating Cozen-spiders. But even that has been a while. That was around the time of our pifflepony race.

“Right! There are probably plenty of new crew that you haven’t even met yet! Like Piffle101, Bluefishie, Safeat2nd, CastIronJack, Needy the Boy Whore, Noskillz (if he’s still here)… Say, do you even remember Ath and Serenity? What is the last thing you DO clearly remember?

“Oh, and the BDH clones are gone! They just dissolved into dust! But your Brides stayed. Look, here comes Bride3 now! She’s become our bartender!”

Trey sternly walks up and smacks TheRealMe. She displays a glass containing a thin film of eggnog. “That’s for tossing a glass onto the floor!”

Gingerly, TheRealMe rubs his jaw. “See! She’s real enough!”

TheRealMe surveys the decorations around the Common Room of the Sereni-Tree. “Hmmm… Not a bad job, Sparky. Not bad at all!”

Trey walks up to TheRealMe. “So, did you save last year’s Christmas Tree along with that sprig of mistletoe?”

TheRealMe thinks. “Well, as I recall, we didn’t have a proper tree back then. We just tied PsychicRiver to a stake, showered him with tinsel, and super-glued a star to the top of his head. But for THIS year, I have another idea!”

TheRealMe grabs a handy aluminum baseball bat and starts looking around the Sereni-Tree for a particular person.

TheRealMe enters the Sereni-Tree’s waterpark. He ducks in time to avoid a slice of Deuce’s left-handed sword that would have taken his head off.

“Hello, Jazaf! Bride2!”

The athletic pair stop their sparring. They stand apart, breathing heavily. Neither turns their gaze away from the other. “What do you want?” Jazaf asks.

TheRealMe seems a little confused. “Ummm, well, first, we DO have a gym, up on the third level of the West Wing if you’d like to use that. But also…” TheRealMe whips out the aluminum baseball bat and displays it before him.

Faster than the eye can follow, Jazaf springs forward and with a flick of his wrist sends the bat spinning out of TheRealMe’s grasp. Somehow, Deuce leaps a considerable distance and manages to get her blade at TheRealMe’s throat. TheRealMe gulps, and remains carefully still. The spinning bat hits the deck and bounces around a bit.

“Actually,” TheRealMe whispers, “I was wondering if Jazaf could use his metal-shaping powers to turn that bat into an aluminum Christmas Tree for us…”

TWG! *hugs* Sorry I didn't get the chance before to welcome you back properly. And you have good timing too, what with the partying and other drunken chaos...

I don't have much info on the climate of New Kal., but I'm thinking there must beaches somewhere if theres jungles and such. Of course, if I recall Ruckus had both beaches and snowy mountains. My advice, wear your swim gear under your snow suit and you'll be all set.

Nice moves, by the way.

Well, it looks like most of the decorating is under way, but something is missing.

Oh of course!

*Runs to a nearby supply closet and pulls out a large metal cylindrical machine and flips the switch*

Now that's better.

*Snow falls gently all around the room*

*goes back to dancing*

STATIC


Above the common room, on the second level walkway, The Gunslinger watches the festivities. He smiles very slightly as he watches her dance, once again the center of attention.

From his back pocket he removes a small silver flask and takes a healthy pull from it, the smooth Irish whiskey sliding down his throat.

STATIC


The Gunslinger's eyes browse the familiar surroundings. As his gaze passes over the entrance to the infirmary, he could swear he catches movement out of the corner of his eye. When he turns his gaze back...he sees nothing, but the hairs on the back of his neck begin to stand on end.

The sky begins to fall around him, and he looks up in amazement. Small white puffs drift down slowly, cold to the touch, and in the back of his mind, he puts a name to the phenomenon:

Snow.

He finds himself feeling the happiness again, and he begins to understand what happiness is, and why the feeling is so pleasant. He does a spin, or as close to one as an incorporeal being can, and smiles.

*Serenity has decided that she should try to join the party, at least for a little while. She rummages in her closet trying to find something to wear. Not ready to give up her mourning yet, she pulls out a white sparkly top. Digging through a drawer she finds her favourite pair of jeans and struggles to get them on.*

Gorramit! One night of binge eating and my jeans don't fit!

*She gives up on the jeans and dons a white skirt embroidered with red flowers instead. Taking a deep breath, she readies herself to face her friends. Why is this so hard?*

*She checks her makeup and hair one last time and then heads out, running her hand over the bow and quiver sitting on a table by the door on her way out.*

Oh right, that kind...besides, you can't dance ON the Festivus Pole.

Looks like most folks have joined the party. Anyone for snow angels? *falls, spread eagle, back onto floor*

JAKE7


**jake7 sees the evil white stuff floating down from the ceiling and snorts in digust**

I've had enough of this stuff to last me a lifetime!

**notices that the snow melts the second it hits the ground -- at least around her**

Well, that's OK then.

**she wanders over to the punchbowl to get a cup of eggnog**

I haven't had this stuff since I was kid!

**she takes a swig, makes a face and then spits it out**

Oh yeah. Now I remember why! Guess I'll whip up some Margaritas!

**jake7 mixes up a huge batch of Margaritas and fills some glasses for anyone else interested. She takes one for herself and goes back to the party -- avoiding the areas where snow is actually accumulating**

JET


Needleseye and Jet walk into the common room arm in arm, sharing the same stride ...and very similar diaphanous dresses. Jet's a lovely red, Needle's her favorite silvery.

Needle whispers~told ya there was a party!
*thinking ~ you need to get out more!*

*The normally grime besmudged Jet immediately smiles at the festive scenery.* Then we didnt get dressed up for nothing... ooh! I could use a drink!

*grabs a glass of Jake7's freshly mixed margaritas. Hands one to Needle
Needle hums a bit and an extremely red poinsettia sprouts in her fingertips. She tucks it in Jet's hair which is curled and tucked up a bit in the back. smiles.

Both are amazed by the snow fall. They see TWG making a snow angel! *both wave*

Jazaf blinks and brings himself back from his battle ready state.
'Oh, heh....sorry about that Me.' He helps TRM get up while Duece gathers the bat.
'So you want me to make a Tree outta the bat?hmmm...It might be a tad small....' Jazaf thinks a while then snaps his fingers, 'I got it! Me, you'll have a decent tree shortly. Duece, follow me. We're gonna get some more building material.'

'I appreciate you helping with the decorations.' TRM says to the couple as they walk away.

'No problem! and sorry for attacking you like that!' Jazaf says over his shoulder.

As the two walk through the hallways Duece asks Jazaf, 'So where are we going?'
'To my room, I have a large slightly used metal wall that I made. We can ust that to make the bulk of the tree. Oh yeah, Once I've made the tree we're gonna need some help carrying it to the common room. We'll have to contact TRM for that.'

*Serenity stops on the second floor landing to watch the party below her before going down. She notices that she's not the only one up here. She makes her way over to Static and stands next to him, watching the snow fall and the general merriment below. Neither speaks for several minutes.*

Don't waste time. *She says, finally breaking the silence.* You never know when you are going to run out.

*His eys flick briefly to her face, then back down to TWG, who is dancing with Ath.*

*She heads downstairs, leaving Static to his thoughts.*

Not cold enough...

*He shrugs and makes his way to his Engineering assistants.*
