We need to test this version of the Cloud, she will fly, I know that, but we need to know that she'll hold up in a fight.'
*punches the button on her comm*
'TRM? We need a portal, one big enough for the Cloud, close to your guys as you can get, do you think thats possible?'

"Loose the shades sister a good observer will spot the flash and well lose any chance of slipping away unnoticed. I know you want to die young and leave a beautiful corpse, but you're not going to kill me doing it."
Quote:Bride6 reaches up, pulls the sunglasses down her nose a bit, and peeks over them for a closer look. “Ooooh! A diamond the size of a testicle!”
"Who do you know that has testicles the size of grapefruit?"

“Well, no, Seryn. I can’t make dimensional portals much larger than the height of a person. However, Rat has developed some shrinking technology that can get a shuttle small enough to go through. The problem is, I think, that we don’t have a vehicle equipped with BOTH shrinking and cloaking technology. Also, I’m afraid that I over-extended myself back during Mai-Quest2. I really can’t make portals of much size just now. I need to rest. Or space-time around me needs to relax and flatten out again. Or something."
"I suppose I could possibly send a few individuals to Boros, dropping them to within feet of one of the Brides. I suppose I know Bride7 better, so she would be easier to find…”
“Anyway, I’m afraid that the folks on Boros are on their own for the time being. Now, I COULD adjust the Sereni-Tree’s course to head directly to Boros, but I’m not sure we want to come in on the same vector that the General Grant used.”
TheRealMe reaches out his hand and concentrates mightily. A small dot of light appears, but soon fizzles out.
"I'm having trouble making portals of any size just now."
“So, Seryn, I hear that there might be something for me to do here. Maybe some… piloting?”

That's Safe and Jack, Bride6 and Bride7."
"Though I wouldn't mind knowing your name first."
Quote:“Yeah, I was a bride,” she said, wistfully. “But my husband died. Accident. Anyway, seven of us brides were brought here to the SereniTree a long time ago. Magic spell or something. I was the second of us to appear, so that’s why I’m Bride2. But this is not a bad place, and I had nowhere better to go, so I stayed.”

** In the Hanger Bay ** **After Breakfast**
Alrighty everybody, It looks like we're ready for our test flight. Let's see what she can do. I've got a few empty crates here that we can blow out of the air lock for target practice. Let's just make sure they're a good distance from the Tree before we target them.
*the crew assembles in their flightsuits and board Ocean Cloud. Seryn and Co-pilot take the foremost seats as Rat and Washie sit by the Engineering station, JadeHand sits by weapons control*
Everyone strapped in? Good. Open the hanger bay door and let's head out to the Black.
* The Hanger bay doors open up and the 5 empty crates get sucked out away from the Tree. Ocean Cloud powers up and creeps out to join them. Once away from the Tree, speed increases and the Crew speed off for some manuevering tests. Seryn performs exquisit barrel rolls and an interesting corkscrew manuever, then increases speed towards the floating crates, treating them as pylons she ducks back and forth between them at speeds that should make the move impossible. The rest of the crew is thankful for the seat straps*
Seryn: Get the weapons ready, this is FUN!
* Spinning Ocean Cloud around and increasing speed, the weapons systems buzz to life*
I've got targets locked.
* two lasers under the cockpit spring forwards and wipeout the first target, then the second. JadeHand flips another switch and a box of missles slide out on each side of the Cloud each releasing a single missle. Box 4 and 5 are destroyed, the blast sending box 3 hurtling away from the Tree. Another switch is flipped and a compartment atop the Cloud opens. A Spear shaped item fires into the crate and the attacted cord pulls the box back towards the Cloud. JadeHand hits the release then another button and the crate is released just before the lasers turn it to ash.*
Weapons systems, Check!
*The engineers report no errors*
All systems check out I think we're clear.
*Seryn trottles up and takes Ocean Cloud out behind a nearby moon. They seem to gone a very long time. Crew back on the Tree begin to scan for them, and detect....... nothing the Hanger Bay on the Tree closes. Seryn shuts down Ocean Cloud and deactivates the SEP field. Ocean Cloud is a success.*
*Her skin still tingling from the SEP field's recent proximity, Washie sits back at ease at her station in engineering. The tingling reminds her of the hazy non-oceany cloud she's been walking around in ever since the first officer informed her that he required her assistance back at the bar.
She had turned to him in readiness for anything, standing at attention, one light brown eyebrow raised in query. 'Turned out I wasn't QUITE ready for anything...' Wash murmurs just beneath the hearing of others on the 'Cloud. She smiles, tingling again at the thought of the unexpected (but quite lovely) tight embrace and kiss. Memory takes her back there, as her duties on the 'Cloud aren't demanding at this point.
He turned away far too soon, she'd left her eyes closed longer afterwards than was warranted. When she finally opened them to see The Real Him placing a kissie (OH! So THAT'S what they're good for...) on the grievous wound, Wash smiles a little and nods slowly. Sighing and pivoting on her heel, all business-like now despite warmly spiraling emotions, Washie is just in time to see a remote control tossed into the trash by Cozen, who appears to be in an almighty hurry on his way out and with his hands full. Wash picks up the small device and slips it into the bodice of her gown between her breasts.
Later, when she donned the utilitarian mission jumpsuit thoughtfully provided by Seryn, Wash tucked the remote into a deep pocket at her thigh, not knowing exactly why, just that it seems right to keep the thing on her person.
She allows herself one more warm non-mission thought before checking the instrument panel at Engineering. 'At the rate family members get hurt around these people, my assistance might be required again. Heck, if I'm lucky, might even be multiple people with multiple stab wounds, multiple KISSIES!'
