week 2

Week 2


[The second week in the Champion Excellence Program kicks off on a somber note. Chitanda, Toby, the Griffin- all three of them gone, two of them in one fell swoop. If anyone thinks to check the profiles on their P.I.P.s they will find that the dearly departed Champions' profile photos have been greyed out.

Right on the dot at 7 am the mechanical woman's voice chimes to awaken the remaining champions on Sunday morning, as she has for the past week. After the initial wake-up call though there's a new message tacked on:]


Congratulations, Champions! By surviving your first trial, you have unlocked the second floor of the ship. A new mini map has been added to your P.I.P.! To access the second floor please stand on the teleporter and select the floor you wish to be teleported to.

[The new floor isn't the only thing floating around the ship though, at least metaphorically. When the Champions are awakened they have regained one new memory from the ones they've lost. Starting again on Sunday, as well, Jamie and Bolton will be back to their usual office hours in their usual locations.]

Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday



[ooc: welcome to week 2, everyone! Check-in has begun and don't forget to submit your memory regains!]

Hey! There you are.

[Ricky's been searching the station methodically for a few minutes, though it's still fairly early in her search that she finds her target. (She didn't have to check the second level at all!) She walks over fairly slowly, not wanting to risk spilling the bowl of ice cream she's carrying (strawberry, fudge ripple, and an interesting caramel-swirled chocolate variety, with sprinkles).]

[It isn't hard to get Angelica's attention, seeing as she wasn't focused on anything in particular. At the sound of Ricky's voice, she looks up.]

Ricky.

[She replies with a typically laconic greeting.]
voltrounds: (B01F. The first hope-filled step)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-23 01:02 am (UTC)(link)
I brought you something.

[She holds up the bowl.]

I wasn't sure what flavor you'd like, so I tried to get a variety.

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-23 02:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh...

For a second, Angelica freezes up, looking down at the bowl in Ricky's hands. As simple as the gesture is, she isn't sure how to respond to it. Very rarely has anyone gone out of their way to do something kind for her, and especially not after—

Finally, she blurts out:]
Thank you.

...is something wrong?

[Did she pick a bad selection of flavors? Is Angelica lactose intolerant? What could it be?]
decarded: (Default)

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-23 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
...No. I simply...hadn't expected it. This was thoughtful of you.

[As stunted as her feelings are, she can appreciate that.]
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-23 12:27 pm (UTC)(link)
You're welcome.

[...but still, that seems like a weird response. Angelica's been kind of weird all week, actually...]

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-23 05:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[She steps forward, taking the bowl from Ricky's hands and scanning the room for an uncluttered table.]

Do you intend to sit with me while I eat?
voltrounds: (B02F. The verdant in-between)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-23 05:45 pm (UTC)(link)
If that's all right with you.

[Or rather, if nobody stops her.]
decarded: (iv.)

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-23 05:58 pm (UTC)(link)
I have no cause to object.

[With that said, she turns and heads straight for the nearest clean table.]
voltrounds: (B01F. The first hope-filled step)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-23 06:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[Ricky hears this as "please do, I want company" and follows. ...and hands her a spoon. That might be important.]

I hope you like it.

[Angelica doesn't like much of anything. For her, that's part of what being a doll means.

...But, if Ricky is being so nice, she can at least act the part in return.]


I'm sure I will.

[With that said, she begins to eat, looking down at her ice cream with great focus.]
voltrounds: (B09F. A labyrinth for monsters)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-23 06:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[This is the most serious ice-cream-eating Ricky has ever observed. Even Xander has been outdone.

Ricky waits for her to make some progress before bringing up the other matter on her mind.]


Are you feeling all right?
decarded: (ix.)

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-23 06:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[She doesn't look up from her bowl when Ricky speaks, pushing her ice cream around with her spoon.]

...I am a doll. I don't feel anything.
voltrounds: (B12F. The Insect Queen's palace)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-23 06:38 pm (UTC)(link)
My best friend is a computer. [And he doesn't even eat ice cream.] And you've been acting weird all week. What happened?
decarded: (iv.)

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-23 06:40 pm (UTC)(link)
...If the dream I had was a memory...

There's no reason for me to feign humanity any longer.
voltrounds: (B05F. Staring down the roar)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-23 06:43 pm (UTC)(link)
...do you want to talk about it?

[yes, ricky, obviously she does, that's why it took you this long to get her to admit there was an "it" to talk about]
decarded: (Default)

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-23 11:02 pm (UTC)(link)
There's nothing to talk about. What's done is done.

[She isn't adverse to discussing it, really, but... She doesn't see the point in doing so.]
voltrounds: (B03F. Marble orchard of soldiers)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-24 12:26 am (UTC)(link)
For "nothing," it sure sounds important.

[...yeah, Ricky's not interested in evasiveness right now.]
decarded: (Default)

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-24 01:17 am (UTC)(link)
Don't misunderstand. It isn't insignificant. Nonetheless, it's useless to talk about it now.
voltrounds: (B09F. A labyrinth for monsters)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-24 01:19 am (UTC)(link)
It isn't useless for people to understand what's wrong.
decarded: (Default)

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-24 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
[She looks up from her bowl to Ricky's face, expression blank and head tilted.]

If you would like to know, I will tell you.
voltrounds: (B09F. A labyrinth for monsters)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-24 01:25 am (UTC)(link)
I want to know.

[The slight edge her voice had picked up is gone now. What she really wants is to help, if she can.]
decarded: (iv.)

[personal profile] decarded 2017-02-24 01:34 am (UTC)(link)
There isn't much to say. [She looks back down to her ice cream.] I failed, and was discarded.
voltrounds: (B10F. The forest's silent king)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-24 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Ouch.]

When you say "discarded..."
