Sailor OOC Posted November 4, 2011 Share Posted November 4, 2011 Participant Notes This fiction will involve Starseed, Shaman, Kamiko, and Justin's character once able to join. Timing This thread starts a few hours after the conclusion of [interlude-Beta]A Jungle Den Kamiko was all a flutter. It was still early in the afternoon. At least to start getting ready for her trip would be the easy part. All of the gear her Mom allowed her to take with was handpicked. Mostly prototypes though. The concept of relying on barely tested gear was... somewhat exhilarating. As she gets the raft and pump unpacked and laid out in the back courtyard, she receives a call over her comlink. "Kamiko dear... thanks for sending that message regarding Starseed... odd... I didn't see her on the log. Then again I never see any of the names. Might have been a last minute addition. But I digress... space? You're going to space now?" Doryoku's sigh could be heard even if you were standing a couple feet away. Kamiko cringes, and before she's able to speak her mother continues. "Well the least I can do is make sure you're protected. I hear Starseed will eventually need spaceworthy equipment for her crews as well... talk about ambition. I think I can spare that one JAXA prototype. Let me know how it feels and don't go into the vacuum without wearing it. I know you can walk out there in your favorite skivvies but... just do it for me, alright? In any case, thanks for the text." Before Kamiko could say a word, Doryoku closes communications. "Dammit..." Then another ring. "Kami-chan!" "Father?" "Yeah, you know that training I was talking about? I just sent someone down there to help you out. You seemed a bit unsure about things. I think you and him will hit it off." "Definately." She sighs. "Where are you?" "Minneapolis. Stopped there for a bite. I haven't had a Juicy Lucy for... quite a while. Well... more like ten." "Well, be sure to tip well over there." "Hell yes I will!" "And thanks." When Long closed his comlink, Kamiko flops down on the unrolled and deflated raft. Her head resting on a clear bag with 4 deflated life vests sitting in it.She plugs the pump into the first of a few valves on the international orange raft and starts pumping. In Japanese, there was some stenciled text translated meaning "Search and Rescue - Shinjuku Ward" on the side. "Sometimes I feel like this raft... all the potential to do wonderful, amazing things and yet I'm not ready..." She muses to herself as she continues pumping. She had already changed into a full whitewater suit, another hand-me-down from Doryoku's search and rescue projects. The helmet on her head fit right, but felt a bit off. Perhaps it was just she hasn't had a need to wear one outside of her flight suit. "Hmm... the water temperature is within human tolerances, but the extra buoyancy of the suit should be welcome in rough waters. Mom said she needed a test in disaster conditions. This is as close ot getting hit by a tsunami I wanna get." She rises up with the raft as she continues pumping, she starts to feel her impulses kick in. "Crap not now... not here..." she thinks as her free hand moves towards the neck of the exposure suit and slips the neck gasket over her mouth carefully. "What if someone sees..." She had picked a quiet spot of the palace, a spot really not traversed except on special occasions. She made sure no one would be using the court... just so that everyone could get set easily and without disturbance. But what if her companions find out?
