Gilbert: [act]seems to have perked up slightly[/act] My fair passengers! Aboard the Seadancer, you will notice several things.
MK: Oooh! What things are they?
Tanya: Does it involve an Impala?
Min: Or a pair of charmingly worn converse?
Emerald: Or grrrrrreat hair? :D
Gilbert: No [act]is still unnaturally cheery[/act]! :D And if you'll all shut up for a moment, I'll explain them to you!
1. The crew of the Sea Dancer just so happens to be anyone who has Coercive ability!
This means, use whichever character you wish in the Mystery Cruise from the Obernewtyn Chronicles, as long as they've displayed actual coercive talent in the series.
MK: Does anyone else find this terribly ironic?
Gilbert: [act]loudly so nobody hears MK[/act] Nothing odd about it! And, best of luck for me, this includes Elspeth, minus Rushton! :D
MK: Oh :| how terribly convenient for you...
Min & Bec: Huzzuh!
[act]Gilbert pauses to make waggly-eyebrows at Elspeth.[/act]
Elspeth: [act]cringes, looking away, and goes back to scrubbing the deck with a mop[/act] This was supposed to be a vacation. [act]to the MoOs[/act] Real nice, guys.
Emerald: I swear, we had nothing to do with it!
Ariadne: Well...I might have.
MK: Ari! How could you?!
Ariadne: [act]wrings hands[/act] Well...Gilbert just looked worried, and it's better to have a happy Captain, right?
Gilbert: Right! Anyway, as I was saying;
3. If any characters who are not coercers should appear to have stowed away on the Dancer, they'll be promptly thrown overboard by these guys: s*c*p
and you don't need to wait for any official Hosts to do the throwing - if anyone sees an unwelcome character, feel free to heave-ho
4. No underage drinking. Or driving. Or both.
Gilbert: And since nobody but me will be driving this baby, I'm the only one who...oh, bother. Didn't think that rule through. Scratch that last.
Min: What, the no drinking or driving rule?
Ariadne: I don't think so! Ignore him, everyone. Rule 4 stands.
Gilbert: [act]points to Rhianon[/act] Ever wanted to drive your own ship before?
Elspeth: [act]sighs and walks forwards[/act] Right. Gilbert, we're never going to get out of here at this rate. Hand me that list.
Gilbert: [act]complies[/act] As you wish, my lovely.
Elspeth: [act]points finger at him[/act] Don't call me that.
Gilbert: Why should I not? [act]does the freaky eyebrow thing again[/act]
Elspeth: [act]turning to the list[/act] Because I can kill you with my mind if you displease me. Now. Listen up!
5. Non-Ober characters. Apparently you're all allowed one guest, if you can get them here in time. If they're not on board by Wednesday, 2nd September, 8PM, AEST...[act]looks oddly around the room[/act]...whatever that means...then they'll miss out.
Do not bring your own Ober Character. We may need them at later stage. Anyone from any other book, tv show, movie, fandom, etc - is perfectly fine.
6. No fighting over your friend's guests...yadda yadda yadda...blah blah, and we're done!
Gilbert: Hey! You missed at least twenty important points there!
Elspeth: Really? Like what? [act]crosses arms[/act]
Gilbert: [act]pauses, then looks slightly devious[/act]...sleeping arrangem--
[act]Elspeth whops Gilbert on the head with the list and walks away[/act]
[act]Gilbert remains on the floor[/act]
Tanya: [act]peering at him[/act] I think she knocked him out.
Rhianon: [act]stepping forward and taking captain's hat[/act] He'll be all right, just...put his feet up or something. Anyway! :D Shall we be off?
Helena: woot! how pretty is it?! :D :D
Ichigo: [act]is following her up the gang plank[/act] come on Hell! stop ignoreing me!
Helena: [act]still ignores him[/act]
s*c*p : [act]halts Ichigo[/act] *you are not permited*
Ichigo: b-but i'm with-!
Helena: [act]le-sigh[/act] he's with me ::)
s*c*p : [act]lets him through[/act]
Ichigo: thank you! [act]glomps helena[/act]
Helena: gak! x_X
Ichigo: oops... :-/ [act]picks her up and puts her on a bench on the boat.. uh i mean ship[/act]
Serendipity: [act]hurries on board dragging Yami behind her[/act] I'm with Yami not Yugi! There's a difference.
Yami: [act]pouts[/act] I'm pouting. Will there be card games on this trip?!?!?! :O
Serendipity: ... Yes.. Card... games.... |:|
Yami: Perfect.. Perhaps I may be able to find clues about my ident-
Serendipity: Boring, look, you can see the ocean from up here!
(Been watching Yu-Gi-oh Abridged the last few days ;P )
Schis: [act]steps onto the boat and looks out to see, importantly[/act] Ah, ain't nothing like the see is there Miryum?
Miryum: To be honest, im quite ambivolent to the sea...
Miryum: Quite. But, yes. [act]walks off pointedly to check out the boat[/act]
Btay: *walks past penguins with pug following behind*
s*c*p: HALT! your not on the list!
Pug: but i am! i am! im with Btay!
Btay: No your not ;P
s*c*p: See you are not on the list! Please remove yourself!
Btay: im only joking! his with me!! and his a magician!!
Pug: Yes i am!!
Btay: lets go!
Meri: *dances onto the ship* :roll:
Alcatraz: *walks up behind her* *slips off the [strike]boat[/strike] ship*
Meri: Hurry up- What are you doing down there? o_O
Alcatraz: :| I fell off.
Meri: Well that was silly. *throws over a rope* :)
Alcatraz: *grabs the rope and starts climbing* I didn't do it on purpose. *breaks the rope and falls back into the water*
Meri: If you wanted to stay you could've just said. *dances off again* :roll:
Alcatraz: Meri... :-/
Sionainn: [act]stomps on board dragging the Dread Pirate Roberts after her, who could really be anyone[/act] What happened to my fruit loops? Did Someone eat them?
s*c*p: [act]eyes the Dread Pirate Roberts suspiciously[/act]
DPR: What am I doing here?
Sionainn: Oh hush you and help me find my fruit loops!
Arwen: [act]skips happily on board the Sea Dancer without looking back[/act]
Voice: [act]calls out[/act] Wait Arwen!
Arwen: Aragorn. :D You're coming?
Aragorn: I hope so. [act]to security penguin[/act] I'm Arwen's guest.
s*c*p: [act]lets him pass[/act]
Aragorn: ;D Thanks! [act]swings Arwen around in the air[/act]
Arwen: [act]giggling[/act] Okay, okay, you can put me down now.
Ari: One guest you say? A choice I must make....
Yoda: Your guest, I am.
s*c*p : Enter
Ari: What? Wait! He's not my guest. My guest would be D-
s*c*p : Frog not on list. Engage disposal sequence [act]Picks up Yoda[/act]
Yoda: Unhand me you must!
s*c*p : Request denied.
[act]Several people pause while Yoda is thrown over the side of the boat[/act]
Gilbert: [act]is unconscious[/act]
Ari: Wow, rule number 3 is nasty.... but wait...what happened to rule number 2?
Rule Number 2: [act]is seen briefly on Australia's Most Wanted[/act]
Ari: Now, the guest I would like to bring along is De-
Harwood: Ari? Is that you??
Ari: [act]whirling around to find the owner of the voice yelling at her[/act]I dont know, do you wish to harm me or sell me vacuumes?
Ari: Oh, Harwood! I didnt see you there.
Harwood: Apparently, and might I ask, what in Lud's name is a vack-kume?
Ari: Ah, how about I explain over a lemonade?
Harwood: Deal ;)
Narrator: Let the swooning begin.
Helena: [act]regains conciousness [/act] urgh.. my head... X:-/ [act]looks about[/act] hmm.. Alcatraz from Alcatraz V the Evil librarians, that was a good books.. Yami, my lud i haven't seen Yu-gi-oh in ages! and Pug! OML! pug!! [act]swoons[/act] [act]cough[/act] ah.. i mean, yes, i remember him from Magician ... |:|

s*c*p: you may pass
Blackbird and Rhett: [act]begin strolling around the deck[/act]
Alcatraz: *has finally made it onto the ship*
Meri: Where have you been?
Alcatraz: :| *ignores her*
Meri: I get it. You were wrestling bears. :D
Alcatraz: ::) Let's go and explore the ship.
Meri: Yay!! :D *dances off* :roll:
[act]creeps up on to deck after hiding in the queue[/act]
Phew, glad I made it :D Now for some appropriate attire [act]siddles off to get changed for the mystery trip[/act] ;D
GypsyElaria: [act]wakes to find herself all alone on the dock[/act] Hellooooooo? Ooh, the ship's here! ... and someone repacked my suitcase! That was nice of them. [act]quickly packs up her fold up bed and stows it in the case[/act] Mal? Mal? I always tell them, rule number one... don't wander off. [act]sighs with exasperation[/act] Good thing I accidentally double booked myself for this cruise, and as such, have a spare date!
Captain John Hart: [act]swaggers up to GypsyElaria[/act] Hey there, gorgeous. Got any room in that suitcase for my hypervodka?
GypsyElaria: [act]giggles[/act] Are you going to try and get me drunk?
Captain John Hart: [act]smirks[/act] Love, I'm going to be trying to get everyone on board drunk.
GypsyElaria: [act]points in the direction of the suitcase[/act] You can put it in there on one condition, you carry it for me.
Captain John Hart: [act]grin[/act] Big strong man like me can handle that. [act]busies himself stowing his crates of hypervodka[/act]
GypsyElaria: [act]strolls to the gangplank[/act] GypsyElaria and [act]points[/act] Captain John Hart, he's my plus one.
s*c*p: [act]checks over the guest list[/act] Access granted.
GypsyElaria: [act]makes her way onto the ship turns back to see Captain John Hart still packing hypervodka into her case[/act] Come on John. [act]turns around to find Captain John Hart on deck with her suitcase... smirking[/act] Yeah, yeah... impressive. Let's go get this stowed below deck and find the others.
Deb: [act]Stands near the gang plank thinking[/act]
Crickets: [act]dead silence[/act]
Deb: Now they tell us we can bring a date! [act]whips out mobile phone and calls someone. Sits down on dock to wait.[/act]
s*c*p: [act]eyes Deb with suspicion[/act]
Zier: Yay, my guest has arrived! [act]mutters[/act] At last! I'm glad he doesn't get seasick, though! :)
Solen: [act]examines the ship with his purple eyes[/act] It's a beautiful vessel.
Gilbert: [act]from the deck above[/act] Ship! Oh, er, sorry - reflex reaction.
Solen: [act]not hearing[/act] But why does it have the large pieces of canvas attached to the masts?
Zier: Oh, they're sails. There aren't any wavespeakers in the Oberverse.
Zier: Nevermind - you'll see. Let's get aboard the ship!
Solen: [act]offers Zier his arm and they walk aboard the Sea Dancer[/act]
s*c*p Halt. State your names.
Solen: What is this strange metallic creature?
Zier: It's a cyberpenguin. Um, a type of bird... uh, flyt, made using a technique a bit like gem- gemelling... [act]has no idea how gemelling works[/act] |:|
Solen: [act]nods, looking only slightly less confused[/act]
Zier: [act]to the cyberpenguin[/act] Zieria, and her guest, Solen.
s*c*p: Access granted.
Zier: Thank you. :) [act]she and Solen wander off to mingle with the other guests[/act]
[act]Nef wanders up, still humming, and her guest glides along beside her[/act]
Death: THIS IS WHAT THEY CALL A SHIP
Nef: yep - made of wood, floats on water
s*c*p : state name
Death: I AM DEATH
s*c*p : Does not compute - Liquidate target
Death: I CANNOT BE TERMINATED, INANIMATE OBJECT
Nef: WAIT! ... I mean, wait - he's with me
s*c*p : access granted
[act]Nef and Death enter[/act]
s*c*p : stop humming mortal, that song is now embedded in my programming
[act]Nef grins evilly[/act]
Min: [act]ducking |:( [/act] Domick's a coercer, right?
MK: Yeah, but he's dead [act]pats Min on the head[/act]. Anyway!
Tanya: Hmm, who to invite, who to invite...[act]thoughts most certainly do not stray to vampirish characters[/act]?
Bunne: [act]holds out eye-Phone[/act] I have an app for that.
Min: Oh! Good point! [act]closes eyes, spins around, whips out eye-Phone[/act]...
Tanya: Er...what are you doing?
Min: [act]chanting[/act] Oh, wondrous eye-Phone, which non-Ober character should I invite?
MK: [act]brightens[/act] Three can play at that game! [act]whips out a piece of paper and starts writing on it / folding it to produce...something that looks like a duck[/act]
Tanya: Pushing a paper duck off the ship will help you decide?
MK: No! Although...[act]thinks a moment and then dismisses quickly[/act]. Tanya - pick a number!
Tanya: No WAY! I saw you make that thing, and every answer is Dean.
MK: Awww :(
Emerald: What good would it do Tanya to invite Dean, MK?
MK: Yes, but then I can steal him... |:|
Tanya: Uh hu, rule 6!
Min: [act]stops spinning, falls somewhat sideways, leans on railing[/act] Oush...
Emerald: So - guest sorted?
Min: [act]shakes eye-Phone and looks at it frowning[/act] Hmm...[act]presses a button[/act]...Hmm...what the? [act]A HORRIBLY familiar song starts playing on it[/act].
Tanya: Clearly, that worked?
Min: Drat. :| That was supposed to be the sound of the TARDIS materialising.
MK: ::) Like we couldn't guess you'd invi---
[act]there's a loud CRASH and a startling "AH-HA!" cry from the upper deck[/act]
Min: [act]face-palms eye-Phone[/act] Double-drat.
Emerald: What, who already? This has gone on for five more minutes than it really should have!
Min: :-/ never mind...it's nearly over [act]points up and winces[/act]
[act]a guy in a t-shirt and cargo pants and...welding gloves...leaps into the Main Deck[/act]
Captain Hammer: [act]grin[/act] You called?
Min: ...apparently so.
s*c*p **Who is this? You will be politely asked to leave or be Deleted**
Captain Hammer: [act]swishes hair[/act] I dare you to try me, metal-bird...man.
s*c*p **You have chosen DELETE!**
Captain Hammer: And you have chosen to talk back to the Hammer, metal-mouth - here, [act]holds up fists[/act] - meet the twins.
Min: [act]pinches bridge of nose[/act] NO...just...just CALM DOWN. It's all right, cyber-penguin, he's...my guest...
s*c*p **Invitation validated. You may stay**
Captain Hammer: [act]nodding knowingly as the cyber-penguin wanders off[/act] Yeah...you just keep on walking. Nobody nowhere can stand in the face of this much magnificence [act]swishes hair again for good measure[/act]
MK: Oh, goodie, that ended well XD [act]hands folded fortune paper thing to Tanya[/act] now...pick a number!
Deb: [act]Sits on the dock waiting...and waiting...and waiting...and...waiting.[/act]
Emerald: [act]Looks around the deck[/act] This is sure looking to be one awesome cruise. I love everyones guests... I wish I knew who to bring...
Ari: Well, Dean is still available I believe.
Emerald: Ohh! Right, my guest for this party will be...
[act]Someone clears their throat behind Emerald[/act]
Emerald: [act]Spins around[/act] Robin Hood?
Robin: [act]Winks, then bows.[/act] My Lady, I believe I have been summoned.
Em: [act]Swoons[/act] You have? Oh, you have! [act]Rubs hands together gleefully[/act] Yes, well at least your my favourite Robin from the BBC series. Nothing against Kevin Costner or anything, but yay! You'll do just nicely.
s*c*p **Unauthorised guest detected. Delete, delete**
Em: Back off boys! He's with me!
s*c*p **Guest authorised, you may proceed**
Robin: Well, that's reassuring. [act]eyes penguins warily[/act] So My Lady, are we sailing for the Holy Land?
Em: To be honest Robin, I'm not sure. Come on, lets check out the ship, and do call me Emerald.
Robin: Very well, after you Emerald. ;)
[act]Emerald and Robin wander off to inspect the ship and the guests.[/act]
s*c*p : State your guests name.
s*c*p : Invalid. Name already on guest list.
Harwood: I think he means you have to state which guest you're taking along before you can go any further.
Ari: You're so smart. Ok, so my guest is pretty obvious really. And so far, he's still free :D
s*c*p : Please bore someone else with your nonsensical jibberish and state guests name.
Ari: :-/ I didnt know that was in their vocabulary.
Ari: Yes yes, I know, dont agrivate the big metal security bird. My guest will be De- [act]gets tapped on the shoulder by Harwood[/act]
Harwood: [act]Whispers into Ari's ear[/act]
s*c*p : Accepted. Enter.
Ari: What? No, not again! It's meant to be Dean, not Halina!
s*c*p : Your time has expired. Enter now or be deleted.
Ari: My guest is Dean, not HALINA!
Halina: You called?
Ari: [act]whirling to face Halina[/act] ":( You tricked me!
Halina: I did no such thing.
Harwood: What just happened? I feel like I just got a really powerful coercive bolt from somewhere :-?
Ari: [act]Looking at Harwood, puzzled[/act] You told me that Halina.....right when.... :| [act]looking at Halina[/act] You force persuaded him didnt you.
Halina: It wasnt me, anyone could have force persuaded this coercer. But now that I'm your guest, shall we board :D
Ari: X:-/ What other Jedi's are here to force persuade?
[act]is ignored, and reluctantly follows Halina on board, Harwood looking rather confused trails behind[/act]
Harwood: You know, it's strange when the coercer becomes the coercee :-/
_ _ _ _ _
[act]~Meanwhile, swimming to shore~[/act]
Yoda: For my humiliation, you will pay ":(
Maz: [act]skips onto deck[/act] h-o-l-i-d-a-y... h-o-l-i-d-a-y...
s*c*p : Please state name of guest
Maz: Guest?! Oh... [act]thinks[/act] (0-) [act]pulls out mobile and calls someone then puts her suitcase down next to Deb's and joins the waiting game[/act] So... who did you invite Deb? ;D
[act]gets a feeling about who Deb and Maz have invited[/act] please don't tell me it'll be another clash of the fangirls? :-/
Helena: [act]brings out some hot choca to Deb and Maz while they wait[/act] no sense in you guys getting cold :P
Since when do we "clash"? I'd rather call it healthy competition XD
Maz: Mmmm! Choca :-} Thanks Helena. [act]stares fixatedly at the gang plank[/act]
lol well, you know what they say: "fangirls who [act]squee!! [/act]together stay together... or rip eachother to pieces trying to get at the object of the [act]squee!! [/act]-age"
but whatever works :nod:
Helena: [act]laughs[/act] no probs :D [act]gets outa the way before somthing fangirl-related happens[/act] :-/
