Welcome to the Program

Good Morning, Champions. In the interest of maintaining healthy sleep patterns, a day/night cycle is in effect. Your presence is expected in the cafeteria in exactly one hour.

[The voice comes through not a large speaker, but through the device that's attached to each Champion's arm. Further investigation of the features of the device will reveal a list of profiles, a mini-map, and a list of rules. The hallways are shiny white and silver, with running lights along the floor and lights on the ceiling, and at the junction of the hallways is a sign with a knife and fork icon and an arrow pointing down the hall.

Welcome to the Excellence Program, Champions. Time to get to know your teammates.]

But how? Nobody should have the technology to build a launch vehicle.
ratherdoweddings: (and if you're chasing a dream)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-12 09:21 pm (UTC)(link)
What? But there are ships all over the place! I'm more worried that we somehow ended up on a vessel that doesn't look like it belongs to the UEAF. It's definitely not Nergal, either.

I don't... wait.

[Okay, so she doesn't have any empirical evidence that there weren't any spaceships around anymore. And given that she's clearly on one now...]

But... there weren't supposed to be...
ratherdoweddings: (and humans shouldn't)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-12 10:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Everyone's saying all different things. I don't understand this one bit. All I know is that I was back on Earth, and then I wasn't.

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 10:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Well we had the same experience there, at least. And I was right in the middle of something, too.
ratherdoweddings: (it teaches us that all things)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-12 10:38 pm (UTC)(link)
My crew should have been able to keep me from being kidnapped, right? Who on earth did this?
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 11:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Do you have any idea why someone would have kidnapped you?
ratherdoweddings: (if you strive to improve)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-12 11:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Probably because I'm the captain of the Nadesico! See, they even put it on my profile on this weird thing.
voltrounds: (B01F. The first hope-filled step)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, we have profiles on this?

[Turning it on and just paging over to that, ignoring the rules for now because she's going to find those in another thread and I'm going to pretend this all works out chronologically, and.]

So you're... Yurika Misumaru?

[why does it say Ricky is impatient]
ratherdoweddings: (it's all just boobs)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-12 11:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Thaaaaaaaat's me! [is she giving a v-sign.] My ship is the strongest in Earth's fleet! Well, it technically wasn't in Earth's fleet, but the bureaucrats back on Earth ended up incorporating us recently.
voltrounds: (B09F. A labyrinth for monsters)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 11:41 pm (UTC)(link)
[IS IT TIME FOR ASK ASHLEY? Yeah, Ricky's pretty sure neither Earth's fleet nor its bureaucrats are a thing, buuuut they've already confused themselves plenty on that subject.]

...sounds hard.
ratherdoweddings: (if you're determined enough)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-12 11:45 pm (UTC)(link)
...it is. [Her face falls, but she takes a deep breath and pumps her fists.] But I'm not letting the space forces or those Jovian Lizards get me down! We're going to end the war and all live happily!
voltrounds: (B10F. The forest's silent king)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-13 12:20 am (UTC)(link)
There's a war?

[YOU DIDN'T MENTION THAT

okay it probably should have been obvious

BUT STILL]
ratherdoweddings: (play at being gods)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-13 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
They've been trying to invade us ever since they appeared, and they've already taken over Mars and the Moon!
voltrounds: (B08F. The Wyvern's nest)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-13 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
People live on Mars?!
ratherdoweddings: (like with the power of love)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-13 04:25 am (UTC)(link)
[There's a solemn pause and Yurika stares at the floor.]

We did.
voltrounds: (B07F. Trail of enduring pain)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-13 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
...oh.

I'm sorry.
ratherdoweddings: (i know this can't continue)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-13 01:53 pm (UTC)(link)
It's... [She takes a deep breath and smiles, pumping her fists.] Don't worry! The war can't go on forever, and we'll fix everything from there!
voltrounds: (B01F. The first hope-filled step)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-14 12:42 am (UTC)(link)
...right. The war has to end someday.

[It could totally end with HUMAN EXTINCTION or something but let's not bring that up.]
ratherdoweddings: (and i've learned these lessons well)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-02-14 01:08 am (UTC)(link)
So until then, we've all got to do our best! Well, first we have to get off of this place.
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-14 01:20 am (UTC)(link)
I guess that means step one is... waiting here for whatever they want us for.
