Week 1


[After the initial introduction of the Overseers on Sunday, the Champions were left to their own devices in investigating the part of the ship they have access to to their hearts' content. However, the doors that Jamie and Bolton came through are locked tight and cannot be unlocked via PIP.

On Monday morning, the same voice that awakened them the previous morning chirps at them again from their PIPs at 7 am on the dot. There's also a pop-up message waiting for them: a notice announcing "office hours" for Bolton in the library and Jamie in the art room every day from here on out.

Enjoy your week, Champions.]

I'm not sure they actually prepare it here at all. I think the kitchen is just to tease us.

[This is not mint chocolate chip ice cream. This is a weird green crumbly brick. And yet she's eating it anyway. The impostor ice cream is just a part of her life now.]
cyan_maid: (Now you're just being an ass!)

[Jane huffs at that - not because of Frederica in general, but because:]

Then why have a kitchen here at all? You could just have a little pantry closet with these if you really wanted to offer themed snacks...it's just a great big waste of space!

[Hilariously enough, the next package of freeze dried food she pulls out is for chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. How even...]

[MAYBE THEY CAN EXTRACT THE COOKIE DOUGH FROM THE IMPOSTOR ICE CREAM AND REVITALIZE IT SOMEHOW okay probably not.]

Angelica thinks it's so we can use the utensils to kill each other.

[Yeah, she's not planning on that anytime soon.]
cyan_maid: (Yeah this is a shitty disguise)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-16 06:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[Suggest it, and she might try it. You never know, it might actually work.]

So they just built a room specifically to show off knives and stuff? That's...really quite stupid of them.

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-16 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
All of this is stupid.

[Well, she won't DIRECTLY suggest it, but...]

Like making cookie dough and then doing that with it so nobody can use it to make cookies.
cyan_maid: (What am I looking at here)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-16 09:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[IT'S GOOD ENOUGH TO SPARK AN IDEA RICKY

Jane pauses, looking at the package in her hands. Cautiously, she opens it up - yeah, crumbly ice cream and...surprisingly intact chunks of cookie dough in there. She eyes the bits critically.]


...You know...maybe, with a little water...there might be a way to at least make the dough into cookies...I can't say they'd be tasty, but they'd have to be edible, right?

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-16 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
That might work. It certainly won't make them any worse.

[...is what she says, but her expression is "I AM ALREADY EATING THOSE COOKIES IN MY IMAGINATION AND THEY ARE DELICIOUS."]
cyan_maid: Jane is pleased to help bake in all red (Happy to help!)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-16 10:06 pm (UTC)(link)
[Jane's already rolling up her sleeves and seeing if she can find any more of this specific kind of packet in the cabinets.]

Then would you like to help? It's not nearly as fun as making them by scratch, but if we can try, we should!
voltrounds: (B02F. The verdant in-between)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-16 10:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Sure. What should I do?

[Other than help find more of them. She's already figured that part out.]
cyan_maid: (Mm-hm!)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-17 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
Ah, perhaps...preheat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees Fahrenheit? Or...one hundred and seventy six Celsius, I think, if that's what it's in.
voltrounds: (B01F. The first hope-filled step)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-17 02:52 am (UTC)(link)
Got it.

[She turns the oven on to 449 Kelvin or whatever units it turned out to be. Actually this is the kind of place where it really would be Kelvin just to screw with everyone.]

Anything I can get out for you?
cyan_maid: (Oooh lookie here)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-17 02:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[Fucking Kelvin, of course it'd be Kelvin]

Um...some water, I think. I don't know how much. Maybe a cupful to start experimenting.

[We've got four packets of this ice cream, that should be enough. Jane's going to start opening them up and separate the dough from the ice cream as best she can.]
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-17 02:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[At least it's not Rankine. Nobody even knows what Rankine is. It probably autocorrects to Ranking, which is something it's at the bottom of.]

All right. One cup of water...

[She goes ahead and grabs a baking sheet, too. SEE, SHE'S THINKING AHEAD.]
cyan_maid: (Give me all of the bacon and eggs you ha)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-17 02:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[Dang even Jane wouldn't know about Rankine. Also thank you Ricky, you're gr8]

It's going to have to be pretty experimental...I don't know how much water it'll take to get these malleable.
voltrounds: (B11F. A mysterious cerulean wood)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-17 03:04 pm (UTC)(link)
[What if it is Rankine and they don't know because neither of them knows about Rankine]

I guess having them be able to be baked like they are is too much to hope for.
cyan_maid: Jane is pleased to help bake in all red (Happy to help!)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-17 03:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[fuck]

That and they'd turn out to be very tiny cookies if we tried. These bits are meant to be small enough to get at least one in each bite, so reforming them into a larger lump of dough is kind of necessary if you want actual cookies you can hold in your hand.
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-17 03:11 pm (UTC)(link)
I never really thought about how they make...

[Wait.]

Well, this stuff, but I guess it's the same with real ice cream too. I wonder if they did experiments to determine the ideal piece of cookie dough?
cyan_maid: (Oh boy! Mail Time!)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-17 08:53 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm just guessing off of how they do it with real ice cream - but yes, the idea would be to have more ice cream to dough.

[She's carefully and quickly dunking bits of dough into the water to see how it reacts. Hm, not much give...let's try kneading a few droplets into there...]

As for that stuff, surely they went through tests for shape and size, among other things. You want to ensure a consistent quality, after all.
voltrounds: (B11F. A mysterious cerulean wood)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-17 10:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[Watching intently. This is fascinating stuff! Fascinating nonsense that's likely to end in tears, of course, but don't tell them that.]

They probably had a focus group or something, to find out what size people liked. ...and then they freeze-dried it.
cyan_maid: (What's that now?)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-18 02:46 am (UTC)(link)
[THEY'RE TRYING SO HARD...ganbatte, girls...]

That's most likely what they did. You'd be surprised how many things in life are subject to focus groups.

[The slow addition of water seems to be doing something, because the little bit begins to actually morph to her touches. Slowly, she starts adding more bits and more water, mushing them carefully with the heel of her hand.]
voltrounds: (B05F. Staring down the roar)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-18 04:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[AND GETTING SO FAR, BUT IN THE END, WILL IT EVEN MATTER? But wow, it's starting to actually look a little like dough!]

There was a focus group to approve the name "Yggdrasil Project." I don't think they can surprise me anymore.
cyan_maid: (What am I looking at here)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-19 04:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[PARTIAL SUCCESS]

Mm, that's true - even names get subjected to focus groups. [Then, curiously,] But what's a Yggdrasil Project?
voltrounds: (B01F. The first hope-filled step)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-19 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh. In my world, Earth's ecosystem had collapsed. Yggdrasil was the project to restore it.
cyan_maid: (I really don't...)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-02-19 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[Quietly stares...and then looks right back to the cookie dough. Ah, it's breaking apart some, let's sprinkle some water in there.]

I...see. [Must've been going pretty slow for them to have the time to name it by committee.] And, erm, was it working?
voltrounds: (B11F. A mysterious cerulean wood)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-19 11:00 pm (UTC)(link)
[Just peering intently as she talks.]

It was very effective, eventually. There's almost no pollution at all anymore.
