First Prayer | Video;

[When the feed clicks on, Natalie looks significantly more serious than anyone on the network has probably seen her. She's worried, and she conveys that by slipping into business mode.]

I'm hoping there's already someone here who's collected a security team for the new arrivals.

[Not necessarily formally tied to the actual ship's crew, but that's a risky thing to say out loud.]

If that's the case, I'm submitting my formal request to be added to the team. If a list of skills and qualifications becomes necessary, I can draft something up.

[There is no social awkwardness here. No sir.]

You don't technically need to submit a formal request this way. All you have to do is sign up. I could show you how, seeing as -- ah, I'm from the security team.

Something akin to that.

[Rey, for one, didn't really feel like she had much of a choice.]

Okay, no problem.

...



My name is Rey, by the way.

Mmhm.

[She nods.]

Passenger's Quarters. Right here.

[Let's say she pings Natalie an exact pinpoint of the Common Area Rey will be at.]

whichever works for you. i'm fine either way :|b

And I'll be waiting.

action!

[On occasion, Rey hasn't bothered with footwear. Sometimes they can be stuffy and get in the way of things. Without them, she can feel the ground beneath her feet and sense the vibrations of anyone coming closer much easier. Not that she needs an alarm system when she's already expecting someone to arrive. She turns her head at the sound of that... word.]

Natalie.

[It feels like an echo in her throat.]

Hey.

[That's how conversations start, right? Just... Hey? How's it going?]

[Rey's rationale is a little more about instincts, which are just about the only thing she's had since she arrived here. Instincts.

[She blinks at the remark.]


Like any other day.

[She rises from the comfort of the seat she'd been resting in.]

I already took the liberty to get your job request started. All you have to do is fill it out. Here...

[She flips open her comm device and generally points Natalie in the right direction.]

You're welcome.

[Ariadne had tried to encourage Rey to actually talk to people, rather than just watching them and overall keeping a distance. It took some boundary-pushing to actually exceed her own limits. But she was getting there. Progress. Besides, Natalie didn't seem all too inconvenienced by it.]

I was here during the first wave. But I hadn't had much of a mind to look around all that much, either.

[personal profile] circumitus 2012-02-02 05:05 am (UTC)(link)
I guess so.

[She stares at Natalie for a moment, a blank gaze chilling across her visage, before turning her attention to the chair -- then back to Natalie again.]

I wouldn't really call it leisure time. I spend most of my time alone, anyway.

[Rey just stands still at first, ridged.]

Choice. Force of habit, I think.

[A moment later, she's sitting down again, almost mimicking Natalie's movements, and even going so far as to crossing her legs and folding her hands in the same manner. She doesn't even really think about it.]

[Rey doesn't know if she can answer that immediately, if she wants to be in earnest here. She doesn't know, or remember. What she feels now is a lot like loneliness, but it also feels very familiar. The memories come to her sometimes -- in dreams. But they're oftentimes very muddled and unhelpful. Nothing that makes enough sense to bring up in conversation.

[So she can only really respond to the best of her ability:]


Yeah, for the most part.

[personal profile] circumitus 2012-02-02 05:29 am (UTC)(link)
I don't know. I guess I never saw anything wrong with it -- but I've been basically told otherwise.

[She had a feeling that she probably didn't enjoy cities all that much.]

There are plenty of groups here.

[personal profile] circumitus 2012-02-02 05:36 am (UTC)(link)
[Rey may or may not be tilting her head in a similar slant as Natalie had a moment ago. There it is again.]

That's not something you can find with anyone here? A connection?

[Getting it? She is not.]
circumitus: ...it got messy. (i did a shot of seamonkeys)

[personal profile] circumitus 2012-02-02 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Rey was being able to paint herself something of an idea, but she was having a difficult time relating. What seems like no big deal to her is a massive issue with others -- like making connections with people, it seems.]

I take it that means you want to leave like everyone else, then?
