"Wait, what? I thought you were the one who wanted to stay here and do the work, so now you're going to break the rules to bring HIM back? Honestly! It was his choice to go out there, so we'd be interfering to force him to do anything else! It's just..." By now, he had realized that Misa had left, and it was just him and Selyna in the room.

"Oh, sod it. I suppose there's no fun to be had here, but at least if I stay here I can always just say I don't know what to write, rather than being caught out there while doing something that isn't fun." He then turned to Selyna. "What about you, then? You've already finished haven't you? You staying here, or are you going after them too?"
25th-Jan-2007 03:23 pm (UTC)
Selyna shrugged - a habit she had picked up while living on her father's ship. In one graceful motion, she rose to her feet and headed to the door.

"I do not fully understand the meaning of 'group' that Misa spoke of, but I do understand responsibility and duty. It is a Guardian's duty to ensure the safety of others, and I suppose in this situation that includes Snorlax and Misa. I will go with them."

She turned her head to stare at Trent with her golden eyes. "Will you join us?"
25th-Jan-2007 05:28 pm (UTC)
For some reason, those two words -responsibility, and duty- seemed to really burn into Trent, as he immediately looked away with a frowning, contemplative expression.

"Well...hm...right...oh, the hell with it! Fine, I'll hang along too. I suppose it at least has the potential of being more fun and interesting than just sitting here if we're just going to get in trouble anyway...However, this all better be worth it!" He then humphed, and got up from his seat.
25th-Jan-2007 06:55 pm (UTC)
"Very well," Selyna said, opening the door. "Come with me. Our... companions could not have gone very far."

She stepped into the corridors of Starcademy. They were largely deserted, since class was in session. A few cadets wandered past, staring at Selyna as they did. She was becoming accustomed to their stares. Although she wore the traditional Starcademy jacket, she wore her checkered cape over top of it and her legs were covered in tight silver leggings. Her long silver hair was tied back in a tight ponytail, revealing her pointed ears.

She ignored the cadets and turned to her left, walking down the hall. She scarcely cared if Trent was following her or not, and since she had no idea where Snorlax or Misa had gone, this direction seemed as good as any.
26th-Jan-2007 04:47 am (UTC)
Trent really didn't care that much over whether he found the others or not, but did figure walking out here would be a nice change of pace. And thus he followed Selyna. Deciding that he might as well make conversation instead of just walking through halls silently, he spoke up.

"Ah, so, Selyna, was it? Pardon me if this is rude or anything, but just previously you said something about you being a Guardian, and I was wondering just what it was you meant by that. Is that some kind of special station within the Stardogs or something? Because I know I certainly have never heard of it before..."
26th-Jan-2007 06:36 am (UTC)
It was times like these that Snorlax wished he smoked or something, so he could be smoking and looking rebellious and cool. Buuuuut he didn't, so that was out of the question.

He was sitting in the commons, glancing around. The room was empty, presumably because everyone else was in class learning. Or maybe the entire ship had been infiltrated with sleeping gas. It didn't matter much either way to Snorlax.

He was sort of hungry, though.
26th-Jan-2007 07:01 am (UTC)
She'd had to backtrack a few times before she actually caught up with Snorlax. Misa wasn't familiar with the exact sound of his steps and found herself following the wrong person twice--people certainly were out a lot when they shouldn't be!--but she found Snorlax after about fifteen minutes, sitting in the commons.

"How is sitting here and doing nothing better than sitting in the classroom and following our orders?" she asked him, hoping to quickly guide him to the error of his ways. She wasn't above taking him back by force, but it was best for people to realise for themselves that their selfish behavior was wrong.
26th-Jan-2007 07:13 am (UTC)
He shrugged. "The walls were suffocating me." Then, upon pondering some more, he added "And I'm hungry. Now I'm closer to food. Would you like to get some food with me?"
26th-Jan-2007 08:24 am (UTC)
"It's not eating time! It's detention time! You have to come back to the classroom before we get in trouble," Misa pleaded. "We've been really lucky so far that no one has found us where we aren't supposed to be, but now we really really really have to go back!"
26th-Jan-2007 02:49 pm (UTC)
Selyna looked at Trent over her shoulder and raised an eyebrow at his question. She waited for him to catch up with her, so they were walking side by side, and thought about how to answer his question.

"You are a human, I am a Guardian. It is the name of my species," she said. "I am not from a Stardog station either. I am not entirely certain where I am from. Several of your planet-dweller years ago, I was found injured on an asteroid by an explorer who lived in his ship. He... took care of me, and I stayed with him as he travelled. It was his wish that I enroll in Starcademy."

They walked in silence for a while longer, before it struck Selyna that perhaps Trent wanted to make conversation. She had never been good at dialogue, especially spoken. She thought of Father and what he would suggest for her to say next.

"You are from Earth, are you not?"
26th-Jan-2007 03:29 pm (UTC)
Trent listened to what Selyna said, and pretty much took it all in stride. He had never heard of the "Guardian" species, but on the other hand, he realy hadn't heard much about any of those other species either. He did wonder briefly about what she was doing in open space to end up on a random asteroid injured, but decided maybe it ws better not to ask about that just yet. And so, they continued walking on until Selyna sent forth her question.

"Right-o! I'm from Earth, and from one of the best nations therein, if I do say so myself! This whole Starcademy business is really my first time in space and in very much contact with other species, of course. I'm only here so Father can have an easier time taking care of his ambitions without chances of some certain people mucking it all up, and to be quite honest it doesn't really matter at all how I do here, since thanks to my family's influence the results will just be the same for me anyway. If you think about it, this whole thing is more like a nice long out-of-planet vacation, you know?"
26th-Jan-2007 10:28 pm (UTC)
"Out-of-planet vacation?" Selyna repeated. "I am afraid I do not understand. You are not able to leave the confies of your atmosphere, so wherever you are, you must be in a planetary environment." She stopped dead in the middle of the hallway and gestured to the bulkheads around her. "This is a planet, perhaps not in the exact sense of the term, but it is a suitable environment for planet-dwelling lifeforms such as yourself."

She shook her head slightly. "I wish you were able to actually enter space and experience it as you would a planet. It is regretful that you are not."

She paused to regard the expression on Trent's face. Perhaps she had not fully grasped the subtleties of conversation that Father had tried so hard to impose on her. She thought quickly about what she should say next.

"Would you like to consume some nutritional matter? I believe that is a social custom as well as a necessary aspect of planet-dweller life."
27th-Jan-2007 12:11 am (UTC)
"No, no, that's not what I mean! By out-of-planet, I meant a vacation away from my OWN planet. You know, Earth. Wait, hold on...you mean you can breathe in space and all that, and also breathe in here too? Because that would be bloody brilliant, the kinds of games you'd be able to play in space like that without having to worry about exploding or anything..."

He continued to walk through, following Selyna through the halls, but when the talk of eating, he just stopped and looked at Selyna with an utterly confused look on his face.

"Wait, what? You're asking me if I want to eat now? What happened to searching for the other two. Not that I mind getting a bite to eat or anything, but really, I thought the whole reason we came out here in the first place was for that "duty" of yours or whatever it was..."
27th-Jan-2007 01:09 am (UTC)
"Apologies," Selyna told Trent. "I understood that the consumption of food was a part of the socialization ritual." She shook her head and raised her shoulders as if to sigh, but made no sound. "Apparently I am not familiar enough with your social customs. Perhaps Misa and Snorlax have concluded their converstaion ritual with 'a bite to eat', as you put it, if indeed Misa has found our wayward companion."

She shook her head again. "You must forgive me, and please correct me if I make such a mistake again. I am trying to fit in, but the rules of your interactions is very strange to me."

She paused again and gave Trent a half smile. "And to answer your earlier comment, I don't breathe in space. I don't breathe at all."
27th-Jan-2007 02:23 am (UTC)
Trent blinked a few times, letting the experience of meeting and conversing with such an apparently bizzare girl sink in, and pausing a bit before deciding on how to reply.

"Ah, well, no harm done, am I right? Though I think if Misa did find Snorlax, she would be dragging him back to the class, now wouldn't she? Or at least, that's what I presumed was the reason for all of us coming out here. Oh, and don't worry about it! Culture clash is inevitable in a place like this with people from every which way coming along for whatever reasons, wouldn't you say?"
27th-Jan-2007 02:53 am (UTC)
Snorlax shook his head. "Come on, it's too late to turn back now. We'll probably get in trouble no matter what we do. We might as well live it up before we get caught. And besides, the old hag was going to have to release us for a lunch break at some point ANYWAY. Why not take it early?" He almost reached over to tousle her hair, but didn't. "What kind of food do you like?"
27th-Jan-2007 03:39 am (UTC)
"You don't know its too late! It won't be too late until someone finds us out there or goes back to the classroom and sees just Trent and Selyna there. You shouldn't just give up and figure you might as well do whatever you want because you'll get in trouble anyway. No one gets in trouble if they do what they are supposed to do. What if Trent and Selyna get in trouble for letting us go? It's best for everyone if we turn back." Misa ignored the food question, trying to discourage that train of thought. It might be hopeless if she let him have his way.
27th-Jan-2007 04:04 am (UTC)
"How do you know Trent and Selyna are still there? They're probably looking for us. Or up to their own sort of trouble. Playing Bugger-My-Neighbor or whatever." He shrugged. "Well, maybe you don't eat or something but I'm going to find some lasanga in this ship somewhere. You can come. Or you can go back to the room and wait for Flaggle-floo to come back. And you did your paper anyway, right? So it's not like she can say you're in trouble for not doing your work."
27th-Jan-2007 04:23 am (UTC)
"There were there when I left," Misa said. "They better not have tried to follow me. I bet neither of them would know what direction to go in. Anyway, I'm not going back without you because then I'll have left for nothing. It's just not right to just let people go off by themselves. What we really ought to do is go back to the classroom and make sure that Trent and Selyna are both still there and that no teacher has come by to find us missing."
27th-Jan-2007 06:45 am (UTC)
"They probably did. I wouldn't want to hang around that room if everyone else was leaving. And if you're not going back without me... then I guess you're not going back for some time." Snorlax laughed. He could be a jerk sometimes, without noticing. "Ugh, come on. They won't be there, and teachers are busy teaching classes that aren't us. We won't get caught, I promise. If we are, I'll... I don't know. Do something apologetic for you."
27th-Jan-2007 06:59 am (UTC)
"I..I could force you back, you know. You wouldn't even be hard to carry." Misa could see that Snorlax wasn't likely to budge and he probably was right--the others probably came after them. If that was true, then even if she and Snorlax went back, there would still be the same problem of the group splintering off. Having herself and Snorlax in the classroom would be no better than having herself, Trent and Selyna remaining after Snorlax originally left. The ideal was everyone in the classroom, doing their work, and no one getting in trouble.

"How about," she suggested, "I listen to see if I can hear them having a conversation and we go find them. If they are in the classroom, then we can just stay there and if they came after us, then we can all go back together."
27th-Jan-2007 07:38 am (UTC)
Snorlax winced. He kind of forgot that she was a million times stronger than him. "Well... umm... I could use my laser vision on you and you'd explode." Not that he had any intention of actually doing so. He just thought he'd throw that out there.

He sighed. "Oh alright. We can look for them. And then they can get some food with us."
27th-Jan-2007 07:51 am (UTC)
Misa frowned skeptically. "I've never heard of an Earther with laser vision before. And when we find them, they can come back to the classroom with us."
27th-Jan-2007 08:27 am (UTC)
"Earthers usually don't have green hair, either. Well, not as a natural color, anyway." He shrugged. "I'm only half. My mom was from... er.. somewhere else. Yesnid, I think? Eh, doesn't matter." Snorlax then realized he'd been distracted from his current mission. "And no! We're going to get some food first, at the very least!"
27th-Jan-2007 09:29 am (UTC)
"Okay, how about this:" Misa suggested, "First, we find them. Second, we go back to the classroom. Third, we all do our work. And then as a reward, at lunch time, we all eat together!"
