*on Boros*
A small hot dog stall, a Monkey dressed as a Ninja flips slabs of meat. Citizen dressed in a Grey suit with a bowler hat and big feather calls out to the passing crowds

Hot Dogs get your Hot Dogs! Spicy Chihuahuas Enchiladas here!

The Monkey starts gesticulating wildly, jumping up and down and pointing at the meat

What’s that boy, little orphan Timmy is stuck down the well?

Monkey eye’s Citizen viscously. Throws an empty bottle of Hot Sauce, which hits Citizen on the head

Ow, so we’re out of Hot Sauce? Damn, well to be honest I don’t particularly want to talk to the keeper of the Hot Sauce, those questions can be pretty hard, and we both know what happens if you get them wrong.

Citizen spots Safe and Jack moving against the crowd. He hurries over to them, and holds a mirror up to their faces. Safe and Jack eye him quizzically

Reflection is important, I can tell that your people of Action, people who get the job done, from your reflection.

Citizen puts the mirror back in his suit pocket.

So how would you feel about doing a job for me, pays well, plus I’m well connected. Respectable businessman see, and what-ever it is your looking for I can help you find it.
What do you say?



More insane ramblings by the people who brought you beeeer milkshakes!

Safe and Jack make their way down the street. Winding their way amongst the crowds, hawkers and street vendors, they are constantly bombarded with various sales pitches, everything from clothes, food, rare books, to escort services. The last giving Jack the most pause.

“Aww… C’mon Safe, lighten’ up a bit.”

Safe smacks Jack in the back of the head “Focus!”

Their progress is interrupted by a man shoving a mirror in their faces and blathering something about reflections. “Reflection is important, I can tell that you are people of Action, people who get the job done, from your reflection.”

Jack brushes the man off as just another crackpot. Safe stops, his curiosity piqued.

“So how would you feel about doing a job for me, pays well, plus I’m well connected. Respectable businessman see, and what-ever it is you’re looking for I can help you find it.” The man blurts out as his eyes dart nervously between the two. Jacks glower makes him question whether he was right in choosing these two, but Safe’s raised eyebrow gives him the courage and opening to plunge ahead.

“What do you say?” he asks, nervously adjusting his bowler.

Jack grabs the man by his lapels and drags him close, “what do you know of our business” he asks in a quiet, dangerous voice.

“Jack, put the man down, you’re attracting a crowd” Safe says looking around. “Lets go some place quiet and let this man speak his piece, and then we’ll decide how healthy he remains.”

CITIZEN


Citizen smiles nervously at the man who had hoisted him bodily off the ground and was glaring at him, violent like.

Well, if ya gents want some place quite to talk...

Jack drops Citizen nonchalantly to the dirt floor. Citizen stares up at him and smiles.

Just walk right this way. I know of a good place we can get some business done.

Citizen leads them through the maze of Market stalls, beggars and backstreets, the environment getting more and more run down and dilapidated with each step.

Eventually they come to a big metal door, which Citizen raps on three times. The door slides open too show an old warehouse pilled high with boxes.

Two small Monkey’s, dressed as Ninja’s one carrying an old rusty Katana, the other a large assault rifle adorned with animal pelts, glower at Safe and Jack. A large Gorilla hangs from a pipe by the door.


Don’t worry about him, that’s just Pigeon, he loves to hang around by the door and say BOO!

Citizen smiles as he beckons Safe and Jack in, starting to act more confident and comfortable now. He beckons them over to a small table with a number of chairs arranged around it.

So let’s talk business.

Citizen leans back in his chair, and removes his hat.

I run the McKayNine fast food venture, best food this side of the Core, and you know why?

Citizen glances between the two faces before him neither look impressed.

Special sauce, no one else can get it ‘cept me, and anyone I tell about it. What I need is you two to pickup a consignment, and then bring it back here too me. In return not only will you earn yourselves some good coin, but I’ll help you find whatever or whoever you’re lookin’ for.

STATIC


Static descends to the party and wanders over to her...and stands, watching her make snow angels.

TWG feels his gaze upon her and props herself up on an elbow and smiles up at him.

The smile batters through the walls that had been erected around the Gunslinger's heart, laying waste to them. He feels a stab of pain and elation at the same time and it sinks to the very core of his being. A glow begins to expand slowly outward. The faintest hint of a smile plays at the corner of his mouth.

Without a word, he kneels beside TWG and his arms encircle her. He scoops her up against him and kisses her fiercely, but tenderly. Every iota of love in his heart for her is transmitted by the kiss.

After what seems like eons, his lips part with hers and he stares into her dancing eyes.

"I lost you. And then I found you again...and then I lost myself for a while."

A painful grimace flashes across his face for a brief second, chasing a sour memory, and is gone.

"I'm trying to find myself again. I want you to join me in that."

"I love you. Beyond words."

"Merry Christmas."

“Where are WE, you mean!”

Bride7 turns around to find Bride6 behind her, smoothing out the wrinkles in her frilly dress. That task accomplished, Bride6 pulls out a compact and quickly checks her makeup and the appearance of her long, curly blonde hair. Satisfied, she snaps the compact shut, puts it in her purse, and looks up at Bride7 expectantly.

Then Bride6 sniffs in disdain.

“Yuck! Is that you, or does this whole place stink?”

Bride6 pulls a small bottle of perfume out of her purse and starts spraying it in random directions.

As Safe and Jack follow the man in the bowler through the back alleys, Safe scans the surroundings, taking note of landmarks. He wanted to make sure they could find their own way back out in a pinch. It is never a good idea to go into unfamiliar territory unprepared.

When they come to a metal door, Jack casually looks back they way they came, looking for any sign that they were being followed, and the man raps on the door three times. The door slides open revealing a cluttered warehouse and a small table surrounded by mismatched chairs.

The bowler man ushers them to chairs at the table, clearly more at ease now that they were on his terms. He takes a seat on the opposite Safe and Jack.

“So let’s talk business.” He says as he leans back in his chair, and removes his hat.

“I run the McKayNine fast food venture, best food this side of the Core, and you know why?” He glances between the two faces before him neither look impressed.

“Special sauce, no one else can get it ‘cept me, and anyone I tell about it. What I need is you two to pickup a consignment, and then bring it back here too me. In return not only will you earn yourselves some good coin, but I’ll help you find whatever or whoever you’re lookin’ for.”


“Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that we take your little assignment. What makes you think we need either the money or your help, Mr….I’m sorry I didn’t catch your name.” Safe says, leveling a steely glare at bowler man.

“Plus, we went through a lot to get to Boros and we’re not about to leave until we see our business to its conclusion.”

As if on cue a large explosion rocks the city causing dust and debris to rain down on the meeting as all three men look up simultaneously.

* TheRealMe addresses everyone at the party in the common room of the Sereni-Tree. *

Well, since we have acquired a lot of new folks lately, I think it might be worthwhile to go through a list of job openings that we might have on the Sereni-Tree.

With the tragic loss of SoulofSerenity, we are without a Security Chief. In fact, since the four Zoe-clones dissolved we are ALSO entirely lacking in security deputies as well.

While our Engineer, TheGreyJedi, and his assistants Needleseye and Jet (Bride4) have the ship’s engineering and technomagic machines well under control, we have lacked a handyman (handyperson?) for simple and mundane repairs and construction since the departure of ManiacNumberOne.

We have been without an official Ship’s Cook since our maiden voyage.

We have also lacked an official Ship’s Navigator. I have usually filled that role. This might serve to explain, somewhat, our aimless wanderings to date.

While Rat is our Acquisitions Officer who will purchace goods of various sorts, we are lacking a Cargomaster to organize and store them in our voluminous cargo holds.

If anyone should have an interest in any of these positions, please apply in person outside the First Officer’s office during my regular office hours of 13:04 – 13:07 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Of couse, you must have some minimal qualifications for the position of interest and no adverse reputations. Poisoners or cannibals, for example, will be excluded from Cook duties.

In the event that we have multiple applicants for some position, the officers will devise some fair method to pick the best candidate. Uh… Arm-wrestling contests, perhaps?

JAZAF


'That should just about do it.'

Duece backs away and gazes at Jazaf's creation.
'It looks almost like a real tree.'
'Yeah, the bark was the hardest. Little details like that usually give me a hard time'

The tree in question is at least 8 feet tall. From it's dull gray trunk to the bright silver glow of it's needles, the tree Jazaf made was a true work of art.

'Ok Duece, time to let TRM know the tree is ready.'

Duece nods and heads over to the intercom system. Within moments a portal opens, giving Jazaf and Duece a clear view of the festivites.
'Allright then.' Jazaf says, 'Let's get this show on the road.'

Reaching into himself for more energy Jazaf alters the Tree again, giving it several legs so it could walk through the portal into the common room.

As it slowly makes it's way through the portal Jazaf says, 'Hey Duece, feel like having a drink?'

'Sure do.' Duece replies already moving to the rythym of the music.

Jazaf chuckles a bit and then says 'Ok, I'll get you some.'

Once the tree reached the middle of the room it lifted up to the full height allowed to it from the legs Jazaf gave it. In a loud voice Jazaf said, 'Merry Christmas people! Here upon special request, I give you....The Christmas Tree!'

The tree settles down and the legs stretch out onto the floor to support it. For good measure Jazaf gives it a quick shudder allowing a few aluminum needles to drop to the floor.

He walks over to Duece who is dance to the music and says,'Now about that drink.'

Citizen stares at the two strangers before him.
Damn outlanders, think they know it all.

Heh, 'tourists', he thought. He caught the eye of one of the heavily armed Monkeys, indicating that things could turn sour. The Monkey stared back at him, before dropping it's gun and starting to groom it self.

As if saved by the bell a huge explosion shakes the warehouse, causing dust and debris to rain down on them from the ceiling.

"Gorramit!" Citizen say's jumping to his feet. "Must be Tuesday." He starts off to the opposite corner of the warehouse.

Kicking an Irate Monkey out of the way he hauls a trapdoor up. Citizen glances back at the two men, now standing with weapons drawn.

"I wouldn't shoot 'em; you'll just make 'em mad." Citizen starts guiding some of the Monkey's down the hole, before starting to follow them down the steps. "You coming or what?"

Well, Serenity, we lacked a tree, and PsychicRiver was an adequate subsitute. He was tied to a stake, covered with tinsel, and had a star glued to the top of his head.

I was not present then. Although I understand that copious quantities of alcohol were!

That time also saw the crafting of a life-like Effigy of Ebo, since our Captain was absent and sorely missed. It filled in nicely for her. I understand that most of the crew danced with it, not knowing the difference.

It was that very statue that I later magically animated to create the Ebo Golem to replace my destroyed robot Sparky.

"I ain't goin' down no gorram hole with no crazy guy and his gorram monkeys Safe! I'll take my chances with the explosions!" Jacks says, giving the Bowler man a glare.

Safe seemingly ignores Jack. He listens intently for follow-up to the explosions. Safe turns to bowler man. "Unless I missed my mark, that sounded like it came from the vicinity of the Space Terminal. I wouldn't imagine that they make it a habit of blowing things up there, no matter what day of the week it is and yet you make it sound like this is a regular occurance." "So, what's this being Tuesday got to do with anything Mr...?".

Safe keeps talking hoping to calm the situation down. Plus he didn't like seeing their chance at making some coin go skittering down a hole at the first sign of trouble. He didn't want to let on how much he and Jack needed this gig.

"___, Citizen ___ at your service." The man doffs his bowler beaming.

PR, whatever are you doing?

Metal Christmas trees don't eat food.

Would you like to help me string up this popcorn with these berries so we can make a pretty garland? It's almost like knitting.

Well you'd think so, wouldn't you?

But it had legs! I saw them.

Fine. Popcorn away! *Holds string*

NEEDLESEYE


Needleseye heads for the amazing Christmas tree. She walks towards it, fascinated by the stringing of popcorn and berries by CMS and PR. Its silvery and so pretty. Jet follows behind to see what the fuss is, then jumps ahead of Needle and enthusiaticly joins CMS and PR with the decorating of the tree.
Caught up in the spirit, Needle gently hums some very ancient carol, learned probably from some poor soul she consumed once upon a cannibalistic day.

Tiny sprigs of holly sprout along the glistening tree branches as she sings.

Seemingly lost in the moment, from the corner of her eye she spies a hand reaching for hers. She grasps it, welcoming.

(it's not really cannabalism if you aren't human. Just...man-eatery. Or something.)

*Stands tall, dark, and warm in silence for a brief moment. Then he starts to hum in baritone harmony with Needle's Carol.*

* Meanwhile, elsewhere on the Sereni-Tree... *

Right! Just like Monty Python! Oh, and here is something else that you have missed during your long sleep.

* TheRealMe opens a vault-like door on one of the Sereni-Tree’s cargo levels and gestures for ThatWeirdGirl to enter. He follows. Inside is a seemingly vast expanse of space with a bright sun shining down out of a cloudless blue sky onto a happy meadow. On a nearby hill is a barn. *

This is our Piffleranch. It’s where Piffle101 breeds her Piffleponies. I used my powers to expand the space inside the cargo bay, of course, but getting that holographic projector to make it seem like an outside environment was quite a task! I even had Kaylee-clone hook up some wind machines to simulate a breeze. Oh, look, here they come now.

* About a half-dozen adorable piffleponies come cantering up to ThatWeirdGirl and TheRealMe, neighing with their musical voices. One nuzzles ThatWeirdGirl’s hand playfully. Always prepared, TheRealMe hands ThatWeirdGirl an apple to feed it. *

Some folks have already established bonds with their personal piffleponies, at least PsychicRiver, Serenity, and Bride6 have. Also, I think Montanagirl has, and either Lissa or Mai or both. Everyone wants a pifflepony, deep down. Montanagirl recently helped deliver a pair of twins. They’re so cute!

Unfortunately, it’s not always safe to keep Piffle’s piffleponies and Bluefishie’s blue fishies together. We’ve had to make a separate aquarium in the water park rather than stick them in a pond here somewhere. See, piffleponies seem to regard blue fishies as something of a snack!

Now! On to the Corral of Kissies! Quite amazing creatures those, and some have medicinal properties!

*Leaving PR to contemplate the Christmas tree Mai returns to dancing.*

In the midst of a tango-ish dance the music is suddenly drowned out by an ungodly screeching noise!!!!!!!!

What not on earth is that?!

*she returns to the commons with TRM and spies Static looking lonely as he watches Grey* *she smiles at the pilot and sighs* Will you tell me about Soul? I know he’s not here. I know because I was not alone for a while. It made me both happy and sad: happy to be with someone and sad to know he shouldn’t have been there.

*his eyes sparkle with tears and he nods* Perhaps we should have a drink while you tell me…*he rises and goes to the bar for some hot chocolate. It is then that she sees PR trying to feed the tree. She smiles. She walks over to him, stilling his hand with her own, and places a small tube in his hands*

Try these. *she pours a few multicolored candies into the palm of his hand* Then add the M&Ms, it’s the British trees that need M&Ms, she isn’t British. *They stare at each other for a while. What did the doctor mean by ‘aw mum'…it dawns on her…her face lights up just as he realizes it too…their smiles identical…he’s my son. PR resumes feeding the tree and twg turns to rejoin the pilot. As she walks back to her partner, she briefly wonders who or what brought her future son to this time...the tall, dark haired boy looks nothing like the short, fair haired twg…except their expressions…and their behavior… he must resemble his father…she may not even know his father yet*

Thank you. *she smiles up at him, their fingers briefly touching when she takes the mug from his hand* Where were we? *before he can respond she sticks a silver bow to his nose*
*giggle* Merry Christmas.

Well now. This is quite a predicament. Fortunately you happen to have in your midst an expert in both medical knowledge and time travel. I think we have two big questions here: who is PsychicRiver's father and why has PR been brought to this period in time?

*heads off to his laboratory to conduct experiments involving flashing lights and bubbling liquids in test tubes*
