Subject: Posty Posty Little Posters

So long as the idea is posted in character and Wyatt can respond before the potential trouble presents itself, I'm good with the precaution. Though, the ASREV's Intelligence is unknown so I'm not so sure that it doesn't have a good enough radar to detect someone sneaking up on it to toss a grenade inside - it does have the Eagle Eye. I'd imagine it might have EMP Shielding as well (I would on a military vehicle). An EMP blast radius might take us out of action too, so I'm a little leery now that I think about it. I'd prefer there to be no shooting as we've a ton and a half of civilians underfoot. Everyone's position should be precautionary, and let's hope Wyatt can talk us out of this. It'd be nice if Willow were with him...

Subject: Action!

" Dang-ran (Certainly) Captain-san, the day you turn your back on folks in need is the day I take a vow of celibacy. Here we are....let's set Cameron-san on the side bench and Amber on the bed, shall we?"

Wyatt practically dropped the man on the bench. His mind was still very much aware of the proximity of the women and he was fighting the sensations surging through him with everything he had. His jaw was clenched so tightly at times that he imagined hearing his teeth crack under the pressure. When he straightened again and backed against the counter, Willow was just finishing with one of her devices and snatching up an all-to-familiar hypospray.

The cause of all of this trouble was panicky and near hysterical, and Wyatt focused his energies on feeling anger towards her to draw the effects of his sudden and confusing primal instincts. Willow was murmuring reassuring nothings as she administered the sedative. She lowered the girl back onto the bed and tucked one of the surgical sheets and blankets around the slumbering body, setting the silver emergency blanket aside. She set the MedComp on full scan on Amber while she moved onto the Captain.

"We need our Captain running things, and not hanging out here, but I want to be certain you've taken no harm before you run off, don'ma?" she started out firmly as she scanned Wyatt with the portable MedAcad.

Wyatt grunted a non-committed response and waited for the diagnosis. He was itching to touch, desiring to smell, and bothered him immensely.

Having received what she needed, Willow started to move back to the MedComp to see if it indicated the same thing about Amber. Cameron stopped her as she went by," "I really don't know what happened. She came on to me, I said no and then next thing I knew I ...couldn't stop myself. This overwhelming desire and lust took over. I'm sorry." Wyatt could sympathize, unfortunately.

"Cameron-san, please, just a moment. You needn't apologize to me," Willow said distractedly as she hurriedly scanned Cameron and studied her findings.

"No-one need apologize," Willow said at last, looking first at Cameron, then Wyatt."This wasn't something you was done TO you." Willow moved back to stand in front of Sung. She kept her voice and face stern as she spoke to him. "Hear me, Wyatt? YOU didn't do this....what you feel isn't real. It's a cheat. A damned ugly one. This," and she took one of his hands and pinched hard on the web of flesh between thumb and hand," THIS is real. We need you awake, so I can't knock you out to sleep it off. Do this, or bite your lip, whatever, to send real signals to your brain, overriding what your brain thinks it feels and that should help clear your thinking. I'll see what more I can safely do later, alright?"

"'Company's coming! A ship just broke atmo!" Crackled Tess over the comm.

Wyatt glanced at the speaker and then gave Willow a brief nod, “Keep these two out of the way. I’ll deal with ‘em later.”

Using the energy he’d discovered from whatever that device did, Wyatt jogged out of the room and through to the cargo bay. By the time he’d arrived the crowd was cheering. It was clear that they liked what they saw, but the captain wasn’t one to assume good things were happening. After all, they were still in the three negatives--”Two down, one to go,” he thought as he gracefully stumbled down the stairs while holding tightly to the rail.

Stepping out into the pale sunlight, Wyatt quickly located the ship--an ASREV bearing Fed sigils--and then caught Asher’s attention, motioning him over.

“That’s no rescue,” he said as it started two sweep back towards them. “Why send one ship t’ help with the evacuation? Get outta sight and make sure ya got something with range an’ accuracy in case things go south, don ma? an’ git the others here ready t’ assist.” He didn’t think he could convince the passengers of the Star to get out of sight and out of the way, so he let that go.

Slipping his shotgun from his sheathe, Wyatt pushed past the crowd and stood waiting to meet the ship’s occupants. The ASREV did a final parameter sweep and then landed, lowering onto the landing field directly behind Rocinante.

As the engines powered down, the landing ramp lowered and out walked a man in the black uniform and trench coat of the federal Marshals. He was a tall man, handsome in a rugged sort of way with brown hair and an easy smile. He had a sidearm at his right and machine pistol on other. Behind him came two other men, dressed in full Alliance military armor and carrying assault rifles slung over their shoulders.

Wyatt left the shotgun barrel down as he gave the marshal a nod. “Glad you boys could make it,” he intoned casually though he felt the tension from the recent encounter threatening to explode. “We were wondering when help fer these good folk was t’ arrive.”

Subject: Chagrinned

"Captain?” Willow’s look was all Wyatt needed to fight through the fog. She looked shocked, and a bit confused, and having just dealt with a euphoric release that he’d been longing for but avoiding for the sake of his crew, Sung felt ashamed and disappointed. He could hear Summer’s voice like a distant echo through the canyon saying, “It wasn’t your fault,” and though it carried some logic, the forgiveness he imagined from his late wife was not enough to relieve the guilt. Clenching his jaw he watched as the little doctor continued her work. “I .... uh....let's get these two to my medical bay - I know both of these people, but I'm pretty certain they didn't know each other...before today, that is. I'd seen Amber earlier and was worried about her. She seemed to be under the influence of something," Willow had crouched beside Amber to check her hand, but then spotted the device on the shuttle floor.

"This is the likely culprit, though I have no idea what it is," Willow scooped up the device and dropped it in her pocket. Wyatt stared at the folds of clothing where it had disappeared and fought back the urge to request it from Willow. He wanted more of what it provided, and hated himself for it.

"Are they going to be ok?" Ash asked in his innocence.

"I'll need to get them stabilized - I don't like Cameron-san's colour, but I don't think this is a drug. That thing had no reservoir for a liquid, so I suspect it's a neuro-stimulator of some kind. Can you carry Amber, Ash? We'll have to get help with Cameron-san. Captain-san," Willow asked without looking at him directly," Are you able to walk to the bay unassisted? I'm thinking I'd better check you, as well."

“I’ll make the bay,” Wyatt forced through dry lips, still eyeballing the pocket where the little device had vanished. “Once we get there, an’ yer sure you no longer need that kuh wu device; destroy it. Wipe the gorram thing from the ‘Verse, don ma?”

Closing up his shirt and righting himself as quickly as he could, Wyatt avoided eye contact with his friends. When he was presentable once more, he made to assist in moving the man, still wanting nothing to do with the young girl as the charged feeling was still somewhat present.

“Remind me,” he muttered to Willow as they made their way to the medical bay. “To never answer a distress call again.”

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: The perception...

In such a case, I considered having Wyatt tear the older man away and beat the tar out of him. But considering that the wealthy on board may object to one of their own being beaten senseless, and that a service rendered to these could potentially lead to future work, I felt that Wyatt's action would be to remove the girl from "harm." It looked consensual to Wyatt, so he's not assuming one is taking advantage of the other. His references to whorehouses and such is plainly in reference to the fact that they stole away to have carnal relations in his shuttle. As far as Wyatt's concerned, they are both at fault.

Subject: Sorry to change things up...

Appearance took a large piece of the pie when leading, and for Wyatt, it had always been a benefit that he could be torn up inside, but on the outside he appeared nonplussed. That’s how it was as Ash drove him about the sparse, barren landscape on parameter patrol. Captain Sung was as calm as the desertscape around them, his steely blue eyes merely scanning the lichen-covered rocks with a casual ease that completely belied the tumultuous thoughts spattering about in his brainpan like hot grease.

The information Sifu had delivered to him just before leaving on patrol did not sit easy with him–it had nearly made him cancel the patrol. It fed the fire that had been burning in his gut concerning the fact that they’d been jammed. He felt certain that the jamming of their signal was not due to any damage they’d sustained, nor was it due to some device held by whomever it was that the little monk had sensed, as weird as that was to the Browncoat. No, Wyatt felt it in his gut, and his gut was rarely wrong: there was another ship out there blocking their signal, and that meant that whoever it was that had blown up the Star was still circling.

“We’re good,” Wyatt stated as they came full circle. “Let’s head back.”

Continuing his thoughts as Ash turned towards the ship, Wyatt considered what that meant. Would the thieves have blown up the Star in the hopes of getting on board and stealing whatever valuable they were after before it went to oblivion? Thinking a job like that through, Sung was certain that he would never put his crew, or the target, at risk like that. He would have snuck himself, Willow, and possibly John and Ash on board the cruiseliner, pretending at being prettier than they were, so that they could get close to the target and make the take. Then he would have had a way to exit without blowing everything up... probably at the end of the trip unless things got noticed. Then Roc would be nearby to pick them up if they needed to jettison prior to docking. Blowing up the Star was what then? An accident?

Rocinante came into view as they passed over a moss-covered rise. She sat docile and hurt in a painful way while the refugees milled about outside the cargo bay clumped into small groups. Like confused sheep, Wyatt thought. Confused sheep with a wolf ‘r two in their midst.

It had to be an accident–the destruction of the Star. That was the only way Wyatt could figure it. Something had gone terribly wrong and now there were complications. Complications made people twitchy, as Sam would say, and that made them even more dangerous. Resting his eyes on each one of the refugees for a moment Wyatt considered which of them were likely to be the inside man Sifu had mentioned. How in the gorram hell am I to weed out such a fella tha’ they’d trust ‘im t’ be on board? Could he play out an act that would draw them out? Perhaps lure them into action where he could have set a trap? In this wasteland?

“Stay alert, Kid,” Wyatt instructed his public relations officer as they glided by the first of the refugees and up into the cargo bay. “Real alert–near twitchy-like.”

Those instructions given, Sung placed Willow and Sifu wandering through the crowd. All he needed was a look from Willow to confirm that there’d been some trouble afoot while he’d been away. Jao gao, he sighed mentally and jumped down from the mule.

“What happened?” Approaching the petite doctor and the small monk, Wyatt sheathed his shotgun in it’s back holster and adjusted his hat so that it rested back a little on his head.

(OOC: assuming something that indicates the trouble with the guy getting slapped, and that they’ve taken care of it...)

“Rung Tse Fwo Tzoo Bao Yo Wuo Muhn,” he muttered his prayer to Buddha and shook his head. “Anythin’ new on that other business we talked ‘bout?”

(OOC: I’m leaving this open as I don’t know... I’ll continue the conversation as necessary.)

With the conversation between himself, Willow, and Sifu fresh on his mind, Wyatt began searching for Wolf and John. He wanted to know exactly what shape they were in as soon as possible. They’d have to begin to formulate a plan of action to rein in those that blew up the Star before others began dying, and being able to fly again was high on Sung’s priority list. Spotting the two men talking over their notes near the stairs leading up to the catwalk, Wyatt joined them.

“Tell me she’ll fly again,” he said with no small amount of concern in his pale blue eyes.

(Assuming a full report and something like, we need to go to the processor and see what parts we can commandeer.)

“Right,” Wyatt turned and looked out at the crowd once more. “Be about it, and be about it quick. I want you back before nightfall. Don’ want noone out an’ about after that.

“We’ll need t’ set up camp fer them folk. Won’t due t’ have them all millin’ about Roc steppin’ in yer business during repairs. Saw some caves off yonder, but I’d prefer t’ see ‘em all indoors an’ out of the way, so if’n y’all see it as a possibility once ya git t’ the processor; let me know if’n we can start moving them there. Don muh?”

As the two men went their way, Wyatt turned about and spots Tess talking to a young lady on the ramp. He also noticed easily enough the two large men eyeballing them with no small amount of rapt attention. Closing his eyes for a moment, he dropped his head and uttered his prayer to Buddha once more before approaching his pilot and her new friend.

“Everything’ shiny here, Tess?”

(OOC: I’ll continue this conversation as needs be too.)

”"Wolf, we're taking the other shuttle. Ash, get to the starboard shuttle with Willow or the Captain. There's a situation you guys need to deal with." John’s voice came over the comm drawing Wyatt’s attention from the conversation at hand.

Wolf called to Wyatt as both he and the ship's gunfighter started moving in that direction, "Captain I'm with Ash right now we'll check it out"

“Ta Mah Duh!” Sung adjusted his hat so that the brim rode low and started after the two. The last thing he needed was to have his strong arm presence removed from the cargo bay right then, and Wolf had business to take care of. “I got it,” he called after them. “Ash, stick around an’ keep an eye on things fer me. Wolf, you an’ John git on ‘bout fixin’ Roc. Don La Ma?”

Stepping quickly up the stairs, he turned down the hall and strode through the shuttle door where he immediately had to admit he wasn’t prepared for what he saw. “What is this Tian Fuhn Di Fu?”

When the two didn’t respond, Wyatt was a little taken aback. Cocking his head to the side he frowned. That ain’t usual, he thought. Even a back-water whore would have the decency to cover up in his opinion. Feeling quite done with the whole affair, Captain Sung stepped forward and grabbed the girl by the arm, attempting to haul her from the older man’s grip and put some space between them.

“I said,” he grunted with the exertion. “What is this pandamonium? This here’s my shuttle not some whorehouse.”

(OOC: Leaving off here so I don’t overstep my bounds.)
