Kacht-ka, Ka Remembrancer


"Eggs are delicious," opines Kacht-ka, from his meditative pose on the beach. Unlike the others, he hasn't changed his clothes at all. Occasionally, something vaguely orange-ish drips from the edge of his coat, but he appears unbothered. "I do not see the point in avoiding them."

Stoaga of the White Legs

While Stoaga was on-board for the idea of a vacation, she didn't know what environment she would be going to. When she was informed she would be on a sunny beach planet, she began bundling up further without a second thought or a single concern. When she was informed this was the relaxation planet and she was supposed to wear far less, that's when a light panic began to set in. Her race was rather sensitive to sunlight, and the idea of not being wrapped up in a cloak in broad daylight sounded tantamount to being set on fire.

She was then informed of the concept of "sunscreen," a lotion that could be applied to the skin to protect it against the sun. Stoaga looked at them in the same way someone would react to being told a source of infinite energy not only existed but is freely available. A few moments of dumbfounded staring later, she leaps at the opportunity to procure this "SPF 200" product. However, lithe as she is, she enlists the aid of Zivilyn to assist in ensuring she is completely coated in the stuff, lest some patch of her burn up upon leaving the ship.

The sun-fearing elf steps out of the ship, clad in sandals, a sporty pair of board shorts, matching bikini top and an open shirt with a pair of shaded spectacles clipped onto them. She immediately flinches upon feeling the sunlight on her skin, but when she notices that she is, in fact, not burning from exposure, she quite literally leaps in delight. A childish giggle escapes her lips as she dashes forward onto the sandy shores to join the rest of her friends in having fun. "This one is excited! I have seen 'beach' before, but don't know what non-White Legs do at 'beach.' What should Stoaga do while she is here?"

Kvardek

Part of him wanted to be indignant. That cheater! Teleporting was definitely cheating! But he had no right to complain after he gave himself a head start. He hung his head and a sound like an exaggerated sigh emanated from him. "In accordance with the defined conditions, I am the rotten egg." He waded into the ocean, slowly so he could gauge how well his modifications performed. So far so good; even if they did not hold up he would be able to walk along the bottom of the ocean and back to safety. In the absolute worst case scenario of sinking into the sand such that he could not move, he would still be able to call for help. Better to avoid the possibility, though, by staying out of the deep water until he was sure he could handle it.

Stoaga had a very good question. He had to admit he had never personally experienced leisure time, though he was certain his Heroes had experiences which could advise him. "Well, there are many different ways to have fun on the beach. For instance..."

Alainis Zutwa associated the beach with her toes sinking into the sand, the tide erasing her already precarious footing as she stood on tip-toe, and the face of a young man inches from hers and growing ever closer. It brought Dr. Torvald Vaelis back to a critical weapons test, watching a decommissioned destroyer buckle and sink below the waves to the whoops and hollers of his team. Queen Asarte remembered looking out her window, studying the beach carefully as her security forces rounded up and detained rioters before they could establish a beachhead. None of these seemed appropriate at the moment. But Xandor Terezath, before he became politically active, would spend a lot of time on the beach with his high school and college friends. So Kvardek focused on his expertise: "We could play volleyball, or splash each other with water. Some prefer to quietly tan or read a book beneath the safety of an umbrella. Others prefer to 'pick up chicks and/or guys', though that may be more of an advanced technique. Activities appear to be decided upon extemporaneously; going with the flow is more important than efficient time management. Mer- Starlet, you seem comfortable in this setting. Please advise us further, if you will."

Zivilyn

On The Ship

Some time spent relaxing with Stoaga was good, though inevitably there'd be some nights that the Excite Shroom isn't an option and thinking about how rotten the Vular were was no good either. Some good ol' fashioned R&D before the ol' fashioned R&R hit the spot, Ziv experimenting with the timings by which his biological packages were stimulated further before detonating, spreading further with a bit less oomph. The chemical to force the change was something he could apply optionally, loosening up his already catty bag of tricks further.

Yolis

"Ya mean ya ain't gonna hide in th' shade?" Ziv chuckles and trades a few good natured ribs with Stoaga when she seems him for a matter of grave import. "So wha'cha got there?" ... SPF 200? Difficult reaching certain angles? Assist-ants? Hoo boy. Ziv helps Stoaga with as much grace and gentlemanly conduct as would be socially accepted. And he's happy to do so, yessir. ... As he has to lean close and take a careful touch to apply the last bit of lotion, Ziv can't help but admire the view. Yessir... "Heh, yer face is cute as a button, Stoaga." Yup, there was nothing quiet like making sure Elven ears were completely protected! Full coverage can be hard to get on a part of your body you can't see! "There we go!"

On the beach Ziv arrives with the laid back gusto he brings to all of his off-duty activities. Snazzy, practical silver shorts with black lining, some strappy black sandals and his good ol' natural physique! The heavy amount of active gear, weeks of military activity and life or death struggles and his preference for neurological stimulation over other vices has left him a tall, lanky Elven fella of his own, a muscled fella in the prime of his youth with several wicked looking gun-shot and stabbing scars on his torso. He couldn't quite recommend it to anybody else but it was what you might call the ultimate summer cut. Ziv grins as Kvardek rattles off some ideas and chimes in. "Y'all ever heard a' chicken fightin'?" He casually slides into the water and submerges up to his chest, looking quite at home.

Everything by design.



Meriele

Meri gives the others a deadpan look. "Thanks." It was nice, however, being the normal one. She did try to maintain a certain degree of 'normal' things with everything that had been going on. The singer is about to talk about the various beach activities (though, really, she'd never been a very active person at the beach) when Ziv pipes up with chicken fighting. "...really?" She snorts. "We could do that, I guess."

Seeing the puzzled looks on Kvardek and Stoaga's faces, she goes to explain. "So, chicken fighting is a game where teams of two face off. One member of a team gets on the other's shoulder. The above people try to wrestle eachother into the water by using their hands, while the below people try to keep upright as best as possible. The below people also are not allowed to get into the wrestling, they serve only as supports. First one to knock the other team into the water wins."

Naivara Ulcahne

Naivara had, admittedly, been a little too excited to drink her beverages. To add further shame, she clearly hadn't had much to drink for some time - shooting her previously iron tolerance utterly down. Now quite inebriated - ahem, relaxed - she decides to rejoin her teammates. Chicken fights with her special forces teammates were far more interesting, but this would be amusing in a different way.

In a matter of a few blinks, she appears - drink in hand - on the surf and throws an arm over Meri's shoulders. She lets out a loud, sharp "woo!" followed by her proclamation of "I can't wait to see this poo poo!"

Stoaga of the White Legs

"Stoaga understands. She will take the top position." Without even checking for whether or not Zivilyn was offering to team up with her or not, she leaps up and parks herself on top of him. She's got a competitive glare going on in Meri's direction. "White Legs arm wrestle all the time. This is just wrestling with both arms." Not at all understanding that this is in fact completely different, she's now got a confident smirk in addition to her eagle-eyed stare as she awaits her opponents' next moves.

You're just lucky my jaw is broken!


The crowd of beachgoers watch in awe as Meri teleports above the ocean into her great, graceful dive. They then gasp, a few of them even standing up to watch as they see Naivara blink her own way down to the beach. Everyone seems to be staring at the group of you standing in the water, waiting to see what will happen next as Stoaga climbs up on Ziv's shoulders.

Kvardek

"I understand the basic idea of the game, and it appears the gauntlet has been thrown," he suggested to Meriele. "Shall we oblige?" He knelt down so Meri would have an easier time climbing up.

Meriele

It takes a moment, but Meri finds her place on Kvardek's shoulders. When he rises to his full height, she beckons the other team forward. "Let's do it." She worries, for a long, anxious moment, what the crowd might tell others; but they're in Alliance territory. There's no way the Vular will extract her here. Let's just enjoy the moment. And the victory.

You're just lucky my jaw is broken!


Onlookers walk down to the edge of the beach when they see the chicken fight between the party. They begin cheering as Meri and Stoaga grasp and pull at each other, with one group yelling for Meri and Kvardek and the other for Ziv and Stoaga. After a long, drawn out battle, Meri manages to get a strong grip on Stoaga, and, with Kvardek's sudden jolt backwards, literally lifts her off of Ziv's shoulders, tossing her to the side into the water. The crowd cheering her and Kvardek cheers even louder as they see Stoaga hit the water, while Stoaga and Ziv's fans hang their heads.

Kacht-ka, Ka Remembrancer


"An impressive victory!" says Kacht-ka from the shore, still dripping orange liquid from beneath his coat. "Perhaps if the white-skinned one weighed much more, it would have been more impressive."

Meriele

"Woo!" Meri throws her arms up in victory, though the sudden movement means she has to wave them around like a windmill as she almost loses her balance on top of Kvardek. "Eat it!" When her robotic companion lets her down, she turns around to high-five him when he stands back up. "Nice job, big guy. We did it!"

Kvardek

"That was well done," Kvardek agreed as he shared in Meriele's high five. "A true team effort. Although... hm." His head turned slowly toward Ziv, and one could have sworn his eyes gleamed with malevolent intent. "It seems unfair for the top to get soaked and not the bottom. 'Share victory, share defeat,' yes?" He waded toward the elven male, arms outstretched and fingers curled like a bear coming in for a crushing hug. "Ziv, c'mere for a second."

Zivilyn

Ziv's all grins and good intentions, a friendly bit of swimming and tussling and nobody getting shot, probably. And you couldn't blame a fella if he was feeling quite lucky to be part of Team Elf, holding Stoaga steady as she fights the good fight. Now maybe that districts Ziv a little, but hey, it's all in good fun. As the two surface at their defeat Ziv pops up and smirks to Stoaga. "Ya know what they say, ya ain't beat 'til ya stop tryin'."

He gives Kvardek the old wide berth as he effortlessly swims around the approaching goon. "Hmm. Yeah, ya got us. But could ya do it twice? Or are ya the hit and run type.. the ol' retirin' undefeated after one round weenie, hmm? Heh heh." He drifts back towards some deeper water and waves Stoaga over if she's up for reassembling!
