067 ☣ a place to break his fall

[Public]

[Anya's only shown her face on the network briefly since Karazhan, when most people were still reeling, when she figured her new additions would fade in a day or two. They haven't. Anya has white spikes of errant bone growing out of her head in a rough organic crown. The camera view is mostly close enough that it crops them out, but occasionally glimpses of the bases - especially the ones near her temples - show through her hair, or when she moves.]

Andrew's gone.

[Clipped. Almost stern, with fate or the ship or herself. She looks down at her tightly clasped hands, which tilts the horns a bit more into view, then back up again.]

I. I've been wanting to make a memorial for the vanished since Esther. How many of you even remember-? Nevermind. I don't think I want to know.

[Speaking a bit more quickly than she usually does; as though she's being harried on, as though there's some reason for tension. Then again, they've few enough reasons for calm.]

It's been quiet, in maintenance. Now that the ship isn't falling apart anymore. So we could build something. I don't want to ask the admiral for a separate room for it, though. Auxiliary rooms are always the first to go. Maybe in one of the common rooms? Tell me if you want it on your floor. Or if you really don't. I kind of want - something with alcoves, you know? Where people could leave tokens and letters and things. I don't want to lock it up, it - it'd belong to all of us. Because the losses do.

I suppose some people would probably vandalize it. I don't know.

[I don't know what to do. I don't know how to solve this problem.]

How would you build it? What would you want from something like that?


[Private to Barbara]

I saw Letty asked you about the engine. I think, given the ship's history, it would be good to have more people trained on it. Not just a second warden, but an inmate or two - some ports affect us differently, like the one where you died, and there was another I saw in Arthas's memories where the wardens were all kidnapped - and maybe a series of, like, On-Call wardens, like the kitchen has. People who know enough of what's what to patch us up after a crash if the keyholders are comaed or what have you.


[Private to Chris]

You owe me eighty dollars for Touko, by the way. Jean and Iris too, I believe?


[Private to Omar]

[Warmly,]

Did the admiral bring your stuff back along with you, or do I have to knit your Christmas hat again?

[The one with the crown on it.]

Do you have metal working tools? If you gouge something into a steel plate someone may be able to paint over it, but nothing that can't be cleaned, nothing that could easily be permanently damaged.

[For her help, earlier.]

On the hull itself somewhere, if you worry about it being stolen.

Perhaps putting it somewhere it won't be as simple for them to set their minds to. In the mess, or the chapel.

[But he leaves it at that, with a shake of his head. He's never known a person who left, he's hardly known any of the people who are still here.]

Good luck with the project.

[Barbara only stares at the bones for a second, though concern still furrows her brow.]

You're probably right. ...No, you definitely are. I've just been...gun-shy, I suppose. [Her lips quirk, just for a moment, with morbid humour.] Do you have any suggestions?

...Do you think Dean would be - receptive?

[A slight nod, at Dean. Worn disappointment nags at her, but she trusts Anya's judgement.]

I agree on the Wardens, and Letty's already on board. You're right about Venus - there are Jax and Tig, so far. Iris is fond of them. [Which doesn't necessarily mean anyone should trust them, but they're not bad choices, as far as she's seen.]

Abigail - do you think I should talk to Ben, before I ask her?

I remember Esther Coleman.

I would think some way to promote options. Everyone copes with loss and with grief differently - I have seen some cling to material items, and others release them over the rail. Perhaps something with blank space so that pictures may be hung or words written.

Seems like the Admiral was feeling a little bit fickle when it came to that. He did let me keep most of the non-perishables... the less dangerous ones, anyway.

[And he's wearing his hat.]

[It doesn't matter that they were at odds over her graduation: at least Roderick was here. And now that he's not, she misses him sorely.

Plus, she knows Anya by now. She sees the cracks.]

Even vandalism's some form of recognition, at least.

But I think we could keep that from happening. Someplace public might be the best idea, for a lot of reasons.

I'd be honored to help, if you think I'd be useful.
