intro log

who. everyone!
what. entering omega.
where. landing pads
when. today
warnings. none for now

You’re not sure how it happened.

A minute ago, you had somewhere to go, someplace to be. Maybe something important to do, or maybe you were just going out to buy groceries. Whatever it was, it doesn’t matter anymore.

You’re in some kind of transport -- a shuttle, given the turbulence and the sounds outside. You’re surrounded by strangers, some of whom might not even be the same species you are. There’s no point in asking. They don’t know how they got here either. The cockpit’s blocked off, like someone forgot to put in a door, and not even a glance at your omni-tool -- a holographic interface accessible by merely tapping the sensor on your left arm -- is any help.

You’ve only got a minute or so before the shuttle starts descending. There aren’t any windows -- this doesn’t look like a shuttle meant for long trips. When it finally touches down, the doors open automatically.

Before you are landing pads, abandoned equipment scattered about. There are other shuttles landing, and whether you like it or not, you’re going to have to get off before yours dumps you out the door. Turn around, and you’re met with a hazy skyline, only half the buildings seem to be coming from above.

Welcome to Omega.

ooc notes
You’re free to expand past the landing area, but please start all threads here. Please remember that your character will not have housing until Aria makes a post granting it; it’ll be on [community profile] outsiders and linked here when it goes up.

Open Sesame

[ One moment, Arthur was going through the teleporter after using Delta's program, hoping to return home. (The decision to go home was not made lightly.) The next, he's in a crowded transport shuttle, being jostled around.

To say he's confused is putting it lightly. He's just glad that while his armor is a bit out of place, at least he's wearing armor, just like everyone else.

His bag in hand with his laptop, he steps off the shuttle and looks around. It's another station, for sure, but definitely not Sacrosanct.

He rolls his shoulders and looks around. ]

Well, this sure isn't where I was planning on ending up.

[ Ordinarily, York wouldn't really have any way of telling if this Arthur was the one she knew without having a potentially awkward conversation, but the armor's a dead giveaway. She figures the odds another Arthur having the same armor are pretty minimal.

So she quickens her pace to approach him when she spots him, and when she calls out to him the relief is obvious in her voice. ]

Arthur -- hey! Hey, man, you too?
soldad: (there's nothing quite like it)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-03 05:33 am (UTC)(link)
[ Arthur's head turns at the sound of York's voice, a little surprised and somewhat relieved to see her. He had seen a suspicious absence of her on Sacrosanct, hadn't been able to bring himself to look and see if Wash and York were gone.

So this is one of two (and admittedly the one he likes better). ]

Yeah, me too. [ He gives her a quick smile, eyes flicking around to all the unfamiliar and alien faces. ] York, have you seen anyone else?

[ There's a vain hope for Marco, and the others - maybe Eames again. ]

neverknocks: (12)

[personal profile] neverknocks 2013-02-03 07:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[ There's relief all the same at the confirmation that he knows her, and York lets out a sigh as she shakes her head. ]

That we know? Not yet. Thought I'd have seen Wash around here by now, but...

[ Well, Arthur doesn't have to be told what that means for York. She and Wash were always pretty close. ]
soldad: (let's go over this again)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-04 05:21 am (UTC)(link)
[ No elaboration needed. He gives a reflexive glance around, looking for the semi-familiar face of the other Freelancer. ]

I'm sure he's around here somewhere. There seems to be quite a bunch of us and we're still getting sorted out.

[ He glances back to her, shifts a little. ]

You okay?
neverknocks: (there was a good bar downstairs)

[personal profile] neverknocks 2013-02-04 05:26 am (UTC)(link)
All things considered, I think I'm doing all right.

[ York shrugs one shoulder, and the smile she gives him is a little tight-lipped. Yeah, she could be doing better, but she's also been way, way worse. ]

What about you? Everything all right?
soldad: (pissed off)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-04 05:29 am (UTC)(link)
All right's a step above lousy.

[ He'd mention something about raptors, but even he's a little frazzled at the moment. Well, frazzled for Arthur.

He shifts again, adjusting the strap of the bag. ]

I'm okay. Out of the frying pan and into another, but at least there's no rampant AI that we know of.

[ Yet. ]

Hey, at least you were going somewhere. I totally missed step one.

[Maeby has given up- not that she really tried, anyway- on actually going away from the shuttle space. Instead the teenager is seated on the group, back against some random shipping crate, just rolling a half empty wine bottle between her hands.]
soldad: (i am impressed)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-04 05:17 am (UTC)(link)
[ Arthur glances over, frowning a little at the wine bottle rolling between Maeby's hands. Now's not a time to be intoxicated, he thinks. ]

Let me guess - you weren't planning on ending up on a space station?

[ His tone is wry. ]
lecousindangereux: hollowart (pic#4744937)

[personal profile] lecousindangereux 2013-02-06 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
When I blew out the candles I pretty clearly wished for an island of half-naked Jude Law's.

[She frowns, giving a mock scan of the area- including looking Arthur up and down preeeetty thoroughly.]

I can't even start listing where things went wrong, here.
soldad: (amused)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-07 04:44 am (UTC)(link)
[ Good lord. Definitely drunk, and Arthur fights not to roll his eyes to the roof. ]

Well, happy birthday, welcome to space.

[ He gestures around, once, sweeping his hand through the air. ]

Don't think Jude Law is going to be coming around, sadly.
lecousindangereux: hollowart (pic#4744947)

[personal profile] lecousindangereux 2013-02-07 11:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[She gives a heavy sigh at that.]

No kidding. The contracts involved in getting his butt anywhere-

[wait. waaaait.]

Why do you keep saying that?
soldad: (check yoself before you wreck yoself)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-08 09:00 am (UTC)(link)
[ Now it's Arthur's turn to look a tad confused. ]

Keep saying what - space?

[ He gestures to the hazy sky line. ]

Sure didn't feel like we were traveling underground.

[ The thing is, she doesn't get the point of the armor; sure it looks flashy and seems to be a nice upgrade on what Lisbeth has only seen in the odd video game here and there from a handful of "friends" playing them late into the night, but still. It doesn't take much for her to realize that she's the one out of place, perfectly dressed like a human as it gets with nothing to conceal herself. ]

Did you expect something else?
soldad: (pissed off)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-04 04:04 am (UTC)(link)
[ Arthur glances over to one of the few humans not dressed up in armor of any kind, and inclines his head. She's probably from his era. Maybe. ]

I had my hopes set on home, but that might have been foolish of me.

[ He gives a half shrug, a what can you do? ]
selfconfidence: (003)

[personal profile] selfconfidence 2013-02-04 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
[ A little bit too foolish, she thinks, but then again she isn't closeted enough to think that everyone's life is as screwed up as hers on a regular basis. ]

You were from somewhere else? [ An anomaly, if she's ever seen one, because everyone around them seems to be picking up on the fact that they were once at home and then they weren't. This is different. ]
soldad: (you're all right)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-04 05:19 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. [ He has a brief moment's hesitation about sharing information, and then mentally shrugs. ] Another space station, one that had promised me I would go home if I just took a little trip through this transporter.

[ He gestures with the hand holding his laptop bag. ]

Obviously, not home.
selfconfidence: (014)

[personal profile] selfconfidence 2013-02-05 03:01 am (UTC)(link)
[ Her eyes go wide just barely because like she thought earlier, Arthur is different. Much like the handful of guys in armor that all seemed to recognize each other, she assumes he's one of them, making a mental note to dig in at some point in the near future. Nothing malicious, just Lisbeth's curiosity spiking.

But she takes note of his description, the fact that Arthur gave away enough information while still being as vague as possible, much like Lisbeth herself. Doesn't like to be bothered, she assumes, but then again neither does she, except her need to know right now takes precedence. ]

You're different. Everyone else here was not from somewhere else.

[ A matter of fact statement, but it's how she determines if Arthur is worth speaking to more. ]
soldad: (pinned down)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-05 05:32 am (UTC)(link)
[ He assumes that her statement is true - though his running into York soon after this will prove it to be otherwise - and he presses his lips together in a thin expression. ]

Maybe I'm just an exceptionally unlucky guy, since I was trying to go home in the first place.

[ He might recognize it as curiosity but he hedges all the same. ]

[personal profile] airraid 2013-02-06 02:41 am (UTC)(link)
[good lord, what is it with people not knowing where they are when they show up here? he's getting the point - that not everyone that's finding themselves on omega is familiar with the place - but the novelty of it has worn off by now and he's ready to stop feeling like he needs to be a babysitter.

yeah. that's right. joker. babysitter.


but he finds arthur pondering his surroundings, a tiny little smirk curving his mouth upward at the edges as he approaches. he indicates the laptop when he raises his voice to speak, all but chuckling as he does.]
.. Pretty sure those things are obsolete around here .. but I think you can use it as a paperweight, though. Assuming it's what I think it is.
soldad: (i am impressed)

aw yeah

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-07 04:36 am (UTC)(link)
[ Arthur's actually considering opening up the laptop and seeing if he can connect to whatever the omni-tool's connected to as well, when Joker approaches. He looks up, mildly startled and then intrigued.

Though, yeah, sarcasm. ]

You telling me they didn't have the decency to make this place backwards compatible? [ And yet, he expected that, honestly, so he raises his eyebrows in a sardonic manner. ] Well, there go all of my sinister plans.
airraid: (❝and twice as loud as reason❞)

i love you.

[personal profile] airraid 2013-02-07 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[yeah, good luck getting that thing to connect to anything around here .. because even though he doesn't know it, that thing's about a couple of centuries behind the times.

so get with it man.]
Nothing around here needs be backwards compatible - whatever the hell that is - because it's all the same technology.

[you're gonna get a chuckle and something of a smirk for that, though, sir.] Okay, now you have my attention. Sinister plans always merit my attention.
soldad: (taking point)

no u

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-08 08:55 am (UTC)(link)
[ This is what comes with leaving a backwards compatible station and ending up on a decidedly less compatible one.

That Joker doesn't know what backwards compatible means, though, is somewhat telling. ]

Well, technology usually evolves.

[ At that Arthur quirks one eyebrow up - ah, now it's coming back slightly. There was a Joker on the station for a short period of time. Not long enough for Arthur to learn anything useful, but still. ]

There's no point in sharing them if they've already been nipped in the bud.

[ Still joking. ]
airraid: (❝by your voice❞)

[personal profile] airraid 2013-02-09 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
It has evolved. If you go back and look at the archives and see what people were doing a couple of centuries ago, you'll see.

[he's gonna start squinting at you in a minute and put two and two together. even though he has no idea that you're from sacrosanct.

even though he isn't supposed to know what or where that is. do ignore that.

and don't expect to learn anything too useful from this guy here .. unless he ends up doing it by mistake by trying to be a sarcastic little jackass.]
.. Yeah there is. C'mon, it's not like you have anywhere else to be right now. We can totally sit down, have a chat, get to know each other.

And I can learn whether or not any of your potential sinister plans here might need my help.
soldad: (pinned down)

[personal profile] soldad 2013-02-10 06:28 am (UTC)(link)
[ Time travel shenanigans on the last station aside, Arthur heaves a small sigh in his head. Yes, the tech's obsolete. This feels like a reversal of him and Eames about new phones.

He gives a small laugh at that, running a hand over his face. ]

Sure, you wanna know about my plan to take over the world, or my plan to make the world's most delicious fat-free cupcake?

[ Spoiler: Arthur has no plans. ]
