Deep in the belly of the ship, past where the stores of salted meat and ale are kept, there's a secret alcove in the maze of the stacked cargo crates in the hold. It's here that Raph's door between Milliways and Tortall is located, and it's here that he makes his stealthy entrance.

If his math is correct it should be well after nightfall, though there's no taking into account the plasticity of time when it comes to doorways. Raph skulks his way towards the upper decks, taking great care to keep to the shadows.

One deck up and a few cabins over, Raph might hear a horrible, dying yak sort of noise.



Blllllllllllllerrrrrrrrrarrrkkkkkk


Really, it's rather hard to miss.

A frantic hand waves him off, tells him to shut up, suggests he turn the heck around, or anything else that will get him to-

Goddess.

Rooooolllllfffffrkkkkk.


"I hate you," Alanna says weakly and without heat, wiping her face with a towel and tossing it over the chamber pot. The reason for all this is clear: the deck is sloping back and forth under their feet as the captain takes them through a patch of rough waves.

The glare he receives conveys how she feels about that particular sea-faring phrase.

"Sea legs," she mutters, flopping down on a bunk and lowering her head between her knees. "A sea stomach would be more useful."

Ugh.

"I lost my bracelet from Jack and the rats ate all my ginger," she adds in a grumble.

They do, it's true.

The ship lists hard to the starboard side.




Rules are made to be broken!

"Yes."

Which is Alanna for gimme gimme gimme NOW.

He's lucky she doesn't jump up and start digging through his bag herself, but that might have dire consequences.

the_lioness: ([Alanna short] Aloof)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
Miserably, Alanna takes the pills and swallows them with tentative sips of ginger beer.

"You are the very best of friends," she sighs, contradicting her earlier sentiment. "This has been going on for hours."

Days.

Weeks.

Goddess, this journey seems endless.

"How are you?"

the_lioness: ([Alanna] Down but not out)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
"Old man," she mumbles, obeying without any argument.

That alone should tell him how she feels.


"Quiet? At the bar?" Her eyebrows go up.

Alanna stares down at her hand and starts to breathe in and out at a steady, less shaky rate.

"Ah."

Beat.




Um.

Oh, yes. He's human now.

"Good for them. How is everyone taking that turn of events? Mal? Mike?" A sly grin. "Does he have to listen to them when they are together?"

the_lioness: ([Alanna short] What a laugh)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
Training with X?

One moment, the Lioness is busy choking out a laugh and trying not to spit ginger beer all over her small cabin.



"Has she stabbed him yet?" she asks gleefully, feeling much better.

Date: 2012-08-21 08:20 pm (UTC)
the_lioness: ([Alanna short] Hello friend!)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
Voices, faint but increasing in volume as if someone is approaching, capture Alanna's attention for a moment. She frowns and says a quick spell, sending purple light to seal all the cracks in the door and room.

There, total privacy.

"I wish I could see them," she says, smiling again. "Better yet, I wish I could help. I know he hasn't been the most dedicated ninja these past few years."

Another beleaguered sigh.

"Not for awhile, I'm afraid. This mission to Carthak is too important for distractions." She sulks at her ginger beer for a moment, until inspiration strikes. "Still grounded? Has he talked to Abigail again? You know, since Sven?"

Even the name makes her laugh.

the_lioness: ([Alanna] Stubborn)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
Well, that stinks.

"Surely Splinter would want him to apologize?" A shrug. "X could... escort him there. Make it some sort of lesson."

She takes a drink.

"How not to be captured and transported by a mutant, for example."

"I could write a letter, perhaps. He can't give me a look. Well, not me me. The other me, Alan, might be in range."

Her eyes snap to Raph's face.

"Is she?"

Date: 2012-08-21 08:51 pm (UTC)
the_lioness: ([Alanna short] Consternation)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
"That's upsetting."

She frowns.

"Is Mike okay?"

How could he be? He'd loved Mel so much, she'd always thought.
