[Y-Haul 1.1] Off we go again, for the first time.

Post by Yoshi »

She had been up since 0300 station time, anxiety had kept her from being able to get much more sleep. Brianna Scott had spent her time instead of sleeping, going over the ship’s drive systems. She wanted to make sure the incident that had left her a cyborg didn’t happen again. Not that she had any clue what had caused it, her station that would have shown the missed step had been destroyed.

Once she had been over the drive systems twice Brianna had made her way to the bridge, and dropped into a secondary seat. With a few commands entered she had brought up the itinerary for the next run. They would be leaving the Endeavor station dry and making the run to Hawking. Once the cargo was loaded they would haul it up to Cascadia. From there she wasn’t sure yet. But Yoshi had given Brie a few contacts there to hit up for a contract.

Once she had gone over the routes a few times, she realized she needed to grab something to drink that had caffeine in it and wait for the new crew members on the cargo deck. With a sigh she got up and started for the mess. Coffee was her mentor’s favorite drink, but for Brie she was a fan of teas, unless she had a late night then it was espresso. With a nice hot mug in hand and a few day old doughnut, Brie made it down to the cargo bay and waited for the crew to arrive.

It felt so hard to wake up sometimes. Seeing how he now looked was always hard to accept as he stared at the reflection for a few minutes. The large canine, flicked his ears. Not a fan of their current state but nothing could be done about it at the moment. So he proceed to work on getting ready, trying to make himself look somewhat civil. Which was hard to do than one would think given his current state. Sure he could move the digits of his paws and make them work like hands. Those claws got in the way a lot and everything had to be grabbed at a odd angle it felt like.

Holes would easily be put into the sweater vest that he had to improvise with now. Sure he was coated in dusty grey fur with shades of brown, pale cream, and a light mocha like color. But to him it would be rude to not put something on. Technically animals weren't naked. It was just the human aspect of his mind....why did he end up in this mess? Shaking his head to push those thoughts away, he took a deep breathe and sighed. Maneuvering the green fabric over his frame and once done, he slipped the red bowtie on; despite it looking like a collar of sorts now due to the red band being visible all around his neck. Plucking the spectacles off the nightstand, he placed them onto the bridge of his muzzle and gave a smile at his reflection. A smile that revealed sharp fangs that made him quickly stop doing it.

"Deep breathe ol boy...deep breathe.." Philaes muttered before getting up and heading out of his quarters.

Claws clicked against the floor, signalling his movement throughout the place. Already he felt hungry and he knew that there was something akin to or actual meat in the mess. So the large wolf dog made his way to the mess hall, noticing Brie. Naw crap..looks like conversation before food.

"Morning..." Philaes greeted, picking up the pace to get to the fridge as he didn't fancy getting in their way.

Brianna paused for a moment, before a large smile formed on her face. "Good morning Mr. Philaes!" She grinned before moving over to the coffee maker, "Would you like a cup? I made myself some tea, but I can make you a cup of coffee!" Brie was already moving to make it before he could respond. "We are going to be pushing off today. Heading back into Alliance territory. Going to be picking some stuffs up there." Brianna sounded nervous, it was going to be her first run on her own.

Ears twitched to the voice as he came to the fridge, more wanting food than the conversation. In which he would rear up and grabbed the handle of the fridge with his paw. Course he didn't notice that the other was already going ahead and making it.

"Coffee doesn't agree with my current system." Phileas replied as he reached into the fridge to grab a slab of meat that rested on a plate. "Right, well so long as I don't have to go and talk to people, I can help bring boxes onto the ship. But I ain't going into the thick of it."

Pulling the slab of meat out, he was quick to grab it in his mouth. The iron taste hit his tongue immediately and he dropped down to his paws, laying down swiftly to tear into the piece of flesh. In which his fangs would easily sink into it and tear it into chunks that he would easily devour. The meal was over with rather fast and he seemed to snap back to his senses. One of those lapses due to the nature of his body...crap. Clearing his throat, he licked the blood on his muzzle as he stood up.

"Uh...anyway...." He stammered, not too sure on where to take the conversation from here due to that...moment.

The door to the mess hall hissed open and Bubblegum shuffled in. She was wearing an old worn out blue teeshirt that hung loosely from her shoulders, gray shorts and pink fuzzy bunny slippers with googly eyes. Her mass of pink hair, an unkempt explosion that almost completely hid the headphones she was wearing, from which could softly be heard the sound of some old rock and roll song she was listening too as she almost zombie-like shuffled across the deck to the food prep area.

Bubblegum made it across without hitting anything despite her eyes being entirely closed. Her hands fumbled across the coffee machine and she grabbed the pot of hot black liquid and the sugar dispenser, then shuffled over to her usual seat and sank into it. She popped the lid off the sugar container, poured most of it into the coffee pot, then started drinking down the now heavily sugared coffee, holding onto the pot with both hands.

"Oh..." Brianna stopped the coffee maker with only half a cup made. She sighed and put a lot of sugar in it so she could drink it, then filled the rest of the mug with milk. "I guess I'll drink it." She smiled and sat down at a table with her two mugs and started trying to drink the coffee flavored milk. "Is there something I can pick up an stock the ship with that would make you feel at home?" Brie asked as she made a face from the coffee flavor.

She was very concerned about keeping the crew happy, she never understood how Miss Katai did it, but she planned trying to keep the moral up. If she didn't she was worried she would fail Miss Katai, and that was the last thing she wanted to do.

Slanting ears would be noticed as he stood there, feel more at home? What was there that would do that? He could barely do a lot of the things he liked to...

"Just more medical supplies, we can always use the equipment and materials. Better safe than sorry." Phileas responds, though his ears perked to the sound of music.

The massive wolfdog moved out of the way as he watched the other person join them in this room. Making him raise a brow as his ears picked up better on the music. He didn't recognize any of it, it sounded strange. Course, he turned his focus away from it and was directed at what she was doing. Obscene amounts of sugar wait....what was she doing?!

"Use a cup woman!!! Also don't touch the sides of the pot nor just down it in one go!!! You'll get burns!!!!" Phileas snarled as he pointed a clawed digit at Bubblegum.

Nodding and making a list of things to pick up at the next port Brie watched Bubblegum walk in and start pounding the coffee away. "Mr. Phileas is right Miss Bubblegum, that isn't safe." She shook her head and frowned, Miss Katai's XO was always strange. "You need to slow down on the caffeine or you'll have the shakes when we need to take off."

"Hmmmmm.....?" Bubblegum replied, slowing her intake of coffee just for a moment, one violet eye opening blurrily to peer at the others from over the rim of the coffee pot.

"Mmm... it'll be fine" she murmured and drank some more, till at least half of the coffee was down before she lowered the pot to the table and sank back into her chair, her head lulling back as she dozed off to her music.

"She'll have more than the shakes to worry about.." Philleas grumbled as his brows narrowed, staring at the odd woman.

Oh how he wanted to protest she would be fine, but considering how this woman didn't really react to his words..it was futile to say anything else. Even more so when she somehow fell back asleep. An ear flicked before he turned to walk out of the mess hall. SHaking his head in displeasure. Hopefully things were going to not be like this for the entirety of his time with them.

"I have learned not to question Miss. Bubblegum..." Leaning close to the big doggy Brie whispered, "She is kind of crazy some times..." The young leader giggled and looked back at the half comatose Bubblegum. "You going to be ready to take the ship out today? Or am I going to have to pilot it..." Brie's skills with the ship's controls were not good at all.

Bubblegum looked up, eyes still half closed, from her coffee, her neon pink hair falling loosely about her face.

"Mmme? Oh....I'll be good in... a few minutes." she said then lifted the coffee pot back to her lips, taking several long gulps of the drink. downing a good amount of coffee before she set the pot back down and took a long deep breath and let it out. She repeated this whole process several more times, eventually draining the pot of it's contents.
