Kale smacks his face, right, that housing assembly, you know the one that’s giving us all those false fuel level warnings? We should really get a new one Cap’n.

Cyrus frowns. Didn't he put that on the list? He though he had a list. "Yeah yeah, it's on the list. With a number of other things," he groans.

Kale sidles up to the Cap'n and says in a low voice, soooo... are we scrapyarding that part again, going for new, or uhhh, "borrowing" a part again?

'The straight and narrow,' as they say. Taking the easy route was what got them into trouble earlier, and swiping something like this was probably going to end up drawing more heat. He sighs. "Let's go for new. We'll thank ourselves later, I think."

You know where to get parts for that? Going there first, or back to the ship. Not sure which is safer...this whole gentrified city is making my skin crawl.

Well a guy usually heads over to Clifford's Parts Empire, they do you solid there, I don't know what it'll be like with all THIS going on though. We know they want Snargle so maybe he should get an escort to the ship? If I'm not on the radar I can get the parts, just need the ships cred-stick. Kales eyes light up at the idea of all the wonderful pieces of tech he can get if the Cap hands over the stick... lessee... chrome detailed wrench, anna new heavy-mist-oscillating-gyro, annnd some flashy orange crew jackets...

Naomi's lip snarls a little bit...but she knows she's the best one for the job, and in the midst of all this political intrigue and mechanical mumbo-jumbo, something like physical escorts and bodyguard work was, well, exactly her specialty.

I'll make sure the little runt gets back to the ship in one piece and a minimal of bruising. Not that discoloration was ever his main concern.

Natasha - Lady Blackbird - Uncaged
❖ Natasha Syri ❖

Natasha smiles as she sees an opening,

"Excellent idea Naomi. There are no better hands than yours to see him safely to the ship.

"We'll get the part and meet you back there as soon as we can."


Natasha fights back a smile at the idea of getting to go exploring without Naomi looking over her shoulder. Naomi was very good at her job, and an invaluable ally, but sometimes she was more stifling to Natasha's freedom than even her father.

Snargle


"We'll see 'oo is a little runt, thugger, when yer want flyin' out o' a void fog in an acid storm. Yer might be all bold cocksure now it's face punch work but I can get back on me own. Just like I got out o' that fuffle in the massage bar on me own and off that slave minin' planet on me own'. Ain't just yew 'oose 'ad it tough, lady. Snargle 'as still got a few tricks," growls Snargle. The goblin goes a strange dark blue colour that seems to shift and slowly ripple across his skin. The goblin moves into the shadow of the library stacks and he seems to fade almost out of view.

Naomi stutters for a moment.

Natasha, I had assumed...I mean, you'd be safer with me...but...as you wish.

It was in this moment that Naomi realized she was genuinely fond of her employer, and though she had initially followed for money and a sense of duty, she now served her for affection. And that made letting her go alone with these braggart men feel all the more risky.

Then she smirks at Snargle, almost laughing.
Oh, I've not doubt, runtling. Trust me, where I come from, we do not judge a person for their size. But we still might mock them for it.

Still, let's not pretend that your scuffling with a few whores is the same as what my fists would have done to them. Nor will I pretend that my figuring out the ship's com-device matches your knowledge of the piloting systems.

With your voices raised, the library-goers are a bit antsy and agitated. You all get the feeling it's a good time to leave.

Snargle


Snargle snorts. "Runtling eh, money thug?" The goblin remains barely perceptible in the shadows and his teeth suddenly glint as he grins. His indistinct form seems to move over past Kale and towards the exit. "Don't fink much o' yer girlyfriend, Kale. Keep yer shiv sharp 'n' close, cully."

Naomi laughs--too loudly for the library--and then nods to Natasha, to then Snargle.

Let's go.

She leads the way out of the library and, with the Goblin, starts heading towards The Owl.

Kales shoulders slump a little as he realizes that he’s not getting handed the ships cred-stick OR spending more time with Her either as he follows the group out of the Library.

Cyrus: Naomi is leading the charge without bothering to check with you first, as Captain--what gives?

Natasha: It seems like Uriah might be making his way to Nightport and meeting you half-way--how does that change your motivations?

Snargle: You have something secret stashed on The Owl that might just become useful all of a sudden--what is it?

Kale: Donovan is a lot more confusing than when you left it last--how confident are you now, and how are you showing it?

Naomi: You're angry at Snargle, confused by Natasha, skeptical of Kale, and uncertain about Cyrus--what about Uriah?



Everyone: Does anything change now that it seems like Uriah is connected to something bigger than you expected?

Kale Arkam

Following Naomi out Kale turns towards the port district and Clifford's Parts Empire, the overly clean and friendly area of town is beginning to get to him but he puffs his chest a bit and tries to bluff his way through. So Cap'n, I was thinking that the team could use a little somethin sumptin to snazz us up a bit. Say some sweet poly-leather jackets with a incandescent sky-squid decal?

Cyrus Vance

Cyrus raises his eyebrows. A decal? "Don't you think that'll draw attention to us? I kinda like to, you know, hide in plain sight. Though a sky-squid does sound cool."

He glances over at Naomi. She could definitely hold her own, that's for sure. More than that, really. But she was still edging mightily close to treating him like...well, like an employee.

Which he was. But he's still the captain.

Naomi Bishop[Dice Pool: 7/7 | Conditions: N/A | XP: 4]

Naomi follows Snargle back towards the Owl. She hardly notices, if at all, that she may have been stepping on toes with Cyrus.

But she did give a last look at Kale as he left. She needed more time to think about what she thought of him. A good ally, anyhow, though a little unpredictable. Still...she tried to tell herself Natasha would be safe with him and that if she weren't, it didn't matter. If Natasha didn't want her being a bodyguard 24/7--what was the daycycle in this dankness, anyhow?--that was her prerogative.

Snargle, you understand any of that business about professor's daughters and stollen goods back there? Too much politics for my head.

Natasha - Lady Blackbird - Misunderstandings Are Bad
❖ Natasha Syri ❖

Natasha moves on with the others, trying her best to fit in, which mainly meant not walking like herself.

"Flint?" she mutters quietly under her breath.

She had always planned to go to him with the crew. What he would do if he found her with this crew before she could explain? That could get messy. She'd have to make sure it was clear she was part of the group, and not an unwilling prisoner.

"You all know this place better than me, lead the way!"

Snargle


Snargle is thinking. Hard. "That coxcomb, Dunder. I don't know jack. Fingerin' me t' Flint jus' to get 'is revenge the dirty scrivenwicker. Might be time fer Daddles? Could be, Snargle old son. Time to use the ducky," The goblin decides to grab the duck from the showers as soon as he gets back aboard. Though Daddles is a yellow rubber duck it is so covered in soap scum that only Snargle uses it. Which is good really. Inside it is a thermal detonator. Keyed to Snargle's DNA of course. The goblin isn't crazy. Just aware of the primary importance of having an edge. A razor sharp, two thousand degree edge. He starts at Natasha's question. "Snargle not know. Snargle bein' set up by Dunder dungheap. Flint kill Snargle now. Flint don't do trials or appeals."

Snargle


Snargle is still grumbling. "Stupid flick tape. Why don't it squeal that Dunder is cheatin' Flint? Dunder's twistier than an inertial damper spring. 'E'll be on the skim all right if I knows owt about Dunder," The goblin bloats up in righteous indignation. Ripples of yellow are circling his forehead. He taps his comm unit. "Daisy? Dox? Come in? Any squeal on that ship info? We is lookin' fer buzz on any kite comin' in. I mean big buzz. Channels would be hummin' on the restricted bands? Doxie?"

The dashboard of the cockpit glows with a warm amber light as the speakers scratch a bit. "Pilot. Snargle. Local transmissions show one smuggling vessel approaching Donovan eastern bays. Screen entry available. Difficult to identify. Please wait."

Squeaking and humming, Daisy Dox continues thinking about the self-initiated request to identify the ship. This goes on for several pregnant moments, and it becomes apparent that she probably just doesn't know. A small slip, however, prints out with an image of the ship in question.

Snargle


Snargle barks a laugh. "Well I fink that answers our squawk on Flint's whereabouts," The goblin gets up and stomps aft. "I'm havin' a shower. I want to be clean fer any executin'."

Once in the showers Snargle takes Daddles and attaches it inside his admiral's hat before showering himself.

I suppose staring isn’t doing right Cap’n? Kale turns away from the attractive woman leaving with snargle and heads towards Clifford’s.
