I am on the bridge, I did not go to deal with the caccoons?
I was going to answer Seeker and tell him WTF you were just here now you are there blah blah blah. But there has been no communication this week, me included. Anyway its been a sucky week for me, bad vibes around big time. Let me know but caccoons? I dont recall other than your suggesting it.

From what I understood of a U2U with you - you were going to take Chumley and blow up the cocoons.

We talked about it last Friday.

No problem for me I'd just been waiting for it.

If you're on the bridge, that's great news!

Sorry you're having a bad week...



*hugs*

Lack of communication between us, sorry from my side. You suggested it but didn't you see my post with the scarey space witch picture? It was suggesting that the shape shifter was her as well... Anyway we will carry on and please send me good vibes people!

You know, I read it and it just didn't click. Sorry about that...


Did you ever talk to Chumley or will I bring him with me?

I'll go back and read it again but I don't remember if you hooked up with him or not.

So, if we can hear from Studious where he wants to go from here I'll join you on the bridge immediately.


Glad it's you to answer them too as you talked to them before, makes it all nice and neat.

I'll cook simething up and shoot it to you in a bit when my boss is preoccupied. LOL

In my mind I went to find him but didn't, I don't recall.


Should I wait until we are gathered on the bridge to repond to the message from the Pen?

Remember not online on weekends. Mostly I can check ATS but post, not so much with my computer at home.

Studious -
How you feeling?
I hope you didn't have a set back.


I posted on the story that I didn't find you in the Ambassadors room - and there's a *red alert* out aboard Ship for you.

I figured this would give everyone a chance to keep on writing while you get to feeling better or figure out what you want to do aboard the Yydryl.

Again, hope you're feeling better!

Hi Everyone,

I'm off on a busman's holiday, 5 days away from the family and stress a 14yo daughter and two younger sons, but I'll be working on my nephew's house. Seems a fair trade. :>

Meanwhile I'll be on dialup, if you need Engineering just address Ms Craig as the NP.

Apparently I wasn't as recovered as I thought I was. I'm getting better by the minute but I'm still noticeably sick.

Anyway since Studious disappeared from the Ambassador's Suite I had him run into the Shapeshifter in my next post. I'll post it here first in case any changes need to be made to it.


The following is that post awaiting approval....



___________________________________________________
Studious and the alien by the doorway exchanged sad glances. They both knew something had happened.

Studious heard a quiet noise from within the room and turned his head to find a passageway opening. He could just make out an object changing color and it looked like a gun.

Seeing that it was aimed at alien by the door he dove into the secret passageway tackling the camouflaged assailant.

The passageway door closed and just as it closed the assailant got off several shots.

The old man hoped the passageway wasn’t soundproof but he knew his luck.
Wrestling the gun away from the assailant it was pushed far from both of them.

The camouflaged assailant changed shape and pushed the Colonel off of him. Luckily for Studious he was between the assailant and his gun.

The shapeshifter approached him and said “Are you prepared to fight?”

Studious: “Of course, ....my shirt is....pre ripped.”

Shapeshifter: “Are you prepared to die?”

Studious: “Today seems like....an ok....day to die.”

The shapeshifter walks toward him slowly and tires to strike the Colonel with his left hand.

The old man ducks and hits the shapeshifter in the back with both hands.
The assailant then tries to strike Studious with his right hand.

The old man ducks again but this time “Karate chops” the assailant in the neck.

The assailant then lumbers forward but even the old man with his cane is able to outrun him.

However after this fight the assailant is now between Studious and the gun so the Colonel flees.




Running through the maze of corridors a door automatically opens as he passes near it. Cautiously he moves toward it again and passes through it into a small dark room.

In the dark room he found a bed and wires. It was a machine of some sort. The bed was several feet lower than the edges of the room. A few stairs connected this raised slightly raised area to the lower portion of the room with the bed.

Then Studious turns and sees a figure appear behind him.

SS: “You have fought well.”

Studious turns and tells him.

Studious: “Thank you...I...do all of my own stunts.”

The Shapeshifter picks Studious up and throws him over the bed in the room knocking over a few glass objects.

Studious gets up and approaches his attacker raising his cane. The Shapeshifter’s gun again transforms into a sword and he raises it as well.
Studious advances several times but the Shapeshifter retreats.

They then engage in a short duel.

SS: “You have learned much old man.”

Studious: “You’ll find I’m still full of surprises.”

The SS locks sabers with the old man and spins his sword. Studious grip on his cane fails and it goes flying.

The old man moves toward the short stairs in the dark room but without his cane he trips and falls down.

The shapeshifter moves in quickly and places his sword near the old man’s face.

SS: “You are beaten, it is useless to resist. Don’t let yourself be destroyed as you did last time. Now there is no escape. Don’t make me destroy you.”
Studious eyes the room for an escape route.

SS: “They are coming for us…..both of us. Join me, with our combined strength we’ll be able to survive.”

Studious: “I’ll never join you!”

SS: “If you only knew the power that the shadow’s wield. Ah, but there is something that might convince you…”





SS: “U never told you what happened to your wife.”

Studious: “What?”

SS: “U never told you what…”

Studious: “You never told you?”

SS: “This isn’t about me this is about U.”

Studious: “I know it’s about me.”

SS: “No it’s about U."

Studious: “Wait you mean you?”

SS: “No I mean U.”

Studious: “Me?”

SS: ”U”

Studious: “U who?”

SS: “I know where you are you don’t need to say you-hoo.”

Studious: “No U who?”

SS: “The chocolate drink?”

Studious: “For heaven’s sakes what do you mean by U?”

SS: “U is the creepy guy that talks to you.”

Studious: “Oh I’m creepy eh!?” the old man rolls up his torn sleeves.

SS: “No you idiot U is creepy.”

Studious: “I may be an old man but…..creepy?”

SS: “No U is the creepy guy that talks to you.”

Studious: “So I’m creepy and I talk to myself?”

SS: “NO. I’m going to call U ‘A’ and I’m going to call you ‘B’.”

Studious: “Alright.”

SS: “ ’A’ is creepy and talks to ‘B’.”

Studious: “But that means I’m creepy and talk to myself.”

SS: “No it doesn’t.”

Studious: “Maybe I missed something, whose A again?”

SS: “A is U.”

Studious: “And who’s B again?”

SS: “B is you.”

Studious: “Your still saying I’m creepy and I talk to myself!”

SS: “No. I saw what you saw. I saw a creepy man talking to you. But that man didn’t tell you something.”

Studious: “Oh, if you say so.”

SS: “Wait, oh never mind. Anyway…” Uses a dramatic voice again “….U never told you what happened to your wife.”

Studious: “I already knew what happened, I didn’t need him to tell me.”

SS: “No, I am…”

Studious: “NO, NO! That’s not true, that’s impossible!”

SS: “Would you let me finish?”

Studious sheepily says “Yes.”

SS: “No, I am… sure you don’t know what truly happened to your wife.”

Studious pulls his hand up into his sleeve, covering it, and then wipes his forehead with it while giving a sigh of relief.

Studious: “What happened to her?”

SS: “You thought a Captain did it?”

Studious: “I know he did.”

SS: “Yes but you don’t know why.”

Studious: “You do?”

SS: “No, but I’ve heard and seen other s talking about it.”

Studious: “Who?”

SS: “Certain......elements within my government.”

Studious: “Don’t tell me you have a shadow government too.”

SS: “Studious, everyone makes shadows…”

EDIT: This post does not necessarily prove that "U" exists because the Shapeshifter only saw what Studious thought he was seeing.

In other words the shapeshifter might have seen Studious' hallucinations.... or U could be real.


This post includes a considerable number of allusions to the Kirk vs. Gorn battle and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

Glad you're back!
Hope you're feeling a lot better...



Studious and the alien by the doorway exchanged sad glances. They both knew something had happened.


Ok, so in the above quote - who is the alien you exchange a glance with?
I only ask because I didn't see you when I went to find you and I can't edit my post.


The only one I saw going to look for you was the guard droid outside the Ambassador suite room - where you should have been.

The only other thing - There's a Ship wide search on for you to get you to the bridge.

Do you want to go to the bridge or are you going to keep evading us for a while?



If you want to stick around a while I may make up some story to tell to the Penelope.

Like you're the finest gentleman ever we've had aboard, helpful, refined, an expert navigator, etc.

lol

See how long it takes them to figure out I'm fibbing...

Or, I might not... But I'm looking for a direction to go into...

Gimme some suggestions...

I don't really like this U thing its confusing and gives the SS a comical character trait. I would like the SS to be more ominous and not so character defined at this juncture. Just my opinion.

It reminded me fo Abbot and Costella's "Whose on First" bit.

I read the following and thought Silo and Studious had met at the ambassador’s suite...


Originally posted by silo13
Stunned I hit the call button to the room, waited for the door to the Embassy Suit to open, and blinked when my eyes met those of the U-Man Studious.

In that one glance, I could tell, he had felt it too.


Source post.


Then Studious isn’t in the room in the next post. So I assumed that he disappeared in between the glance and that new post.

‘He’s not there.’ The guard droid stationed outside the Ambassadors suit responded stoically and waited patiently, as only droids can, for new orders.

I agree it does make him too comical. In the next edit I’ll keep him ominous.

Since my posts have been far between, thought I should make this adjustment. If the science lab is needed for anything and I am for some reason not posting, everything can be addressed to Cat. She is the NPC that I am assigning as head of science operations while I am unavailable. She can be located in the science lab at any time

OMDOG< lol!

I wrote up a post - posted it - went to edit it - and pasted in the wrong post!
LOL

Originally I was going to meet you there, then you got sick and I wrote around it so we could go forward and so you had an option to *get away*...

So I guess you did! And right in front of my eyes!

Oh bother...

Yes, you're right.

Oh bother how am I going to write around this one, lol!

hehehe Now THAT was an OOOPS!

Thank you for pointing out what should have been obvious to me.

Gimme a sec to post something please!

*blush* lol

Whew! Ok done besides the fine edits.

I hope that works for both of you two and Please, let me know if I can change anything!



(And if I may say so myself I think it turned out even better than if I hadn't had the OOOPS... Though I hope it never happens again, lol)!

Thanks for the patience...

Studious...I was thinking last night.
The SS should be a bit like Mr. Toodles character in the vampire story.

I think it would be awesome if Toodles could participate in writing the SS character, were he to be so inclined.

Just thinking and saying.....

Everyone. I have very little time to post on more than the crypto chronicles at the moment. I am taking a leave of absense. Anyone can feel free to use my Character as an NPC if needed for the time being. Shouldn't be more than a week at the most. Profrabbit, me and my crews are adept in quantum functions and computer mechanics. Feel free to have me order them around to do whatever

Roger that, Toodles. I'm going to try and get a post up today. Been freakishly busy lately.
