WHO • everyone + one alien visitor
WHERE • all aboard the vessel
WHEN • may 15th and onward
WHAT • congratulations: you have been boarded
WARNINGS • please warn in the subject lines! potential themes: violence



in the early hours of may 15th, a noise reverberates through the ship, accompanied by a brief decrease in speed. this can be felt by characters in a similar way that a small (and very brief) earthquake might be.

if characters go to explore, they find that attached to an airlock on deck 1 is a small spacecraft. exploring it yields no weapons or answers (but may yield food) as the ship's system is in an entirely foreign language. the conclusion should nevertheless be obvious.

congratulations: you have been boarded.

over the course of the next days, characters may see signs of the alien who did it: long shadows, claw marks scratched high into the wall of one corridor on deck 3 near an elevator, personal belongings they may have left in their quarters disappearing. attempts to find the alien (who will spend most of the time on decks 3 and 5) requires skill in sneaking up on someone and will be met with violence from the heavily armed creature. attempts at communication and diplomacy will be met with violence.

[ after barry's network post about the alien's apparent intention and hearing that there is no protocol in place to deal with a threat, anderson has fallen back onto hall of justice training, or almost: protecting civilians isn't first priority according to it, dispensing justice is, but — there is no hall of justice here and anderson isn't sure what law applies. besides, with only so few of them here (there's more space than she's ever thought she would have), it only makes sense that they should look after each other. anderson wants to help them all, even if she doesn't know them.

gathering in the mess hall and figuring out what their next steps should be is a way to do that. ]


What do you think we should do about the invader?

[MJ is there not because she saw Barry's warning but because Peter told her about what happened and she hasn't met the scarlet speedster, but she doesn't think he'd be making it up. If he says he was attacked, then he was. Then one of them could and will probably be next.

She's found pants and a sweater since her post, in case anyone was wondering. The clothes are a few sizes too big but it's better than losing a toe to frostbite.]


No one happened to bring a gun of their own with them did they?

I did. [ there's a rifle slung across anderson's back that she pulls to the front for a moment to show mj. everything else about anderson screams military, too: the armor she wears, dark and heavily padded. she's small, but there's something steady in her stance, weight distributed evenly between her feet and her back straight.

she knows how to use the rifle. she isn't military, though; at least not by designation. ]

[ barry's been shot. she hasn't yet figured out the full extent of it, hasn't realised yet that he died because he hasn't told her that, but even just knowing that the invader is willing to harm them if they do not give him (her? it?) what they want makes dorothy wary. not scared so much as angry. how can they give the alien anything if they don't even know this place? if they're not here by choice?

she makes sure to go past lucas' quarters on her way to the mess hall, to make sure he's around and all right. she's not sure worrying about him is a smart thing when he tried to kill her, when he's more capable than she is of looking after himself, but — here they are. things are complicated, that would be their facebook status if facebook was a thing in space. (if lucas knew social media at all, too.)

once at the mess hall, she offers: ]
I don't know what we should do, but if anyone else gets hurt - I'm a nurse. I can try to help.

after may 16th
[ dorothy offered to help if anyone should get hurt, and she meant it. if someone gets injured, they'll only need to send her a message, no matter what the time, and she'll come do what she can. which might not be much, given that she's had no luck at all discovering medical supplies aboard. ]

[ she'd seen the video - it was kind of hard to miss - and it had jo something on edge. not that this entire experience has given her an on-going feel of an anxiety dream, but the idea of an alien on board who wanted something from them didn't help matters much. but jo's also a doer, more than she's anything else, which means she's moving and trying to find some way to help.

and yes, she wants to go to level 3. she wants to take the thing on head first. wants to see what it's about. but not emptyhanded. and, preferably, not alone. though that's a bit difficult, considering she hasn't really gone out of her way to make many friends, but she tries to find someone along the way anyway.

it brings her to the mess hall, in which she overhears the offer. jo pauses, because while she's no nurse, she's stitched up enough sides in her time. ]


Do you have stuff? If you run into anyone who needs the help.

[ dorothy offers a smile to the new-comer. not someone she knows, but dorothy's willing to be friendly to just about anyone, to help so long as the stranger isn't looking to harm anyone here. as far as dorothy's concerned, they're all in the same boat. (spaceship, literally.)

her smile freezes a little at the question, turning into a wince. ]
No. [ she admits. ] But I'm inventive.

[ jo's not looking to harm anyone - if anything, she wants to help. to protect. especially if it's a bunch of people who wouldn't normally know what they've gotten into. jo doesn't know anything about space, or aliens, but she's dealt with her fair share of monsters and that brings with it a grit and understanding of the danger, the way these things go.

there's a hint of a smile at the wince, one eyebrow raised. ]
Do you need help looking for some supplies? It wouldn't hurt.

That'd probably be a good idea. I can't believe they wouldn't have some kind of field hospital on a spaceship. I mean. What do they do when someone gets sick?

Whoever they are. [ dorothy has no idea whose spaceship this is. whoever it was, they were probably not too different from humans; the food is edible, the air breathable, the beds a similar size to regular beds. ]

They might and we just haven't found it. [ she shrugs, an attempt to be nonchalant, but the frustration is there. a misplaced sense of anger at their own predicament.

if she could start kicking at a wall and it would fall, she probably would. ]


But whoever they are left this place a mess, so we might get lucky looking around. [ a pause, and then jo turns to face the girl a little more, holding out a hand. ]

Name's Jo.

Dorothy. [ dorothy takes jo's hand, giving it a firm shake. ] I'd say it's nice to meet you, but given the circumstances, I'm not sure it is. No offence.

But yeah, there's still plenty locked doors and blocked corridors, right? There's got to be something somewhere.

[ sara only just woke up and she hasn't figured out this place at all yet, but it doesn't take her long to realise that the mess hall is the obvious meeting place and that leonard and she aren't alone on this ship.

so she makes a point to visit the mess hall regularly and to introduce herself to anyone she meets there. someone should really fill her in about the alien invader. it would explain some of the things she's been seeing: scratch marks on the wall of the corridor that hadn't been there before, the long shadow of someone hurrying down a hall that had her gripping her staves a little tighter.

right now, though? right now, she's all ease, even with a cup of what is probably supposed to be coffee and tastes nothing like it in her hands. ]
Hey. I'm Sara. Did you wake up here same as I did?
