[ Hey Ataraxion, have one obviously annoyed, slightly frustrated, small brunette currently looking into what she assumes is the camera of the device in front of her. She’s only been here for a couple of hours, and already she thinks this is some convoluted dream – she just hasn’t figured out whose yet.

Brow furrowed, she lets out a long sigh, rubbing at the back of her neck before finally speaking to the screen. ]  
So it seems I'm not alone here. [ Which is a good thing, right? (or so she hopes) ] Yet none of you seem to have any real answers.

[ It’s not annoyance in her voice then, more sympathetic perhaps. (She feels your frustrations, okay?)  A small smile ghosts across her face, taking on an almost hopeful expression. ]

Is there a way we could all work together - start ruling out some possibilities maybe?

At least maybe get an idea as to why we were the ones taken. [Quickly adding: ] Is there something significant about you others would find beneficial – anything that may be important?

[ She pauses, attention turning away from the device, and the faint sound of metal hitting the table can be heard. (She tests her totem yet again, still unsatisfied with the results.) Her attention drifts back to the screen, as she clearly is fighting back the panic and uncertainty before she mumbles. ]

Dreams feel real when you're in them...

[ Not that the rest of the people here would understand that. But she needs to keep reminding herself this fact. ]

Not significant, beneficial, or important. So, no.

[Nothing that she's aware of, in any case.]

I don't think this is a dream, either.

Maybe.

[She pauses at the question. After all, it isn't just the past few days that are fuzzy in her head -- she woke up to a total blackout. Rather than wracking her brains trying to figure it out, she's been trying to distract herself, more than anything.

[She tilts her head, thinks for a moment. It's not a reality she's willing to share until she knows she can trust any of these people.]


...nothing. I didn't do anything.

Doesn't evidently matter.

[Although she shifts; the nature of these questions asked make her mildly uncomfortable for not knowing a proper response.]

...

[See, now this was a dilemma she was afraid she was going to have to face, sooner or later. Because she's pretty sure that a ship full of people who, for the most part, are strangers to one another are going to be introducing themselves a lot, and most expecting an answer in return.

[This was going to prove itself to be problematic.]


...nice to meet you. [The words force themselves out like an instinctive reflex; more like reciting a line she saw from a movie than an actual, friendly response.]
circumitus: Otherwise you'd be a dad by now. (thank god you're gay)

[Silence.]

Is anyone?

[Just act natural.]
circumitus: I have big plans. I'm learning spanish this month. (i need an office)

I... no. I remember -- some things.

[It's a half lie, half truth. One wouldn't exactly call them memories, though.]

It's not something I can make a grocery list out of when it's more like... a feeling. Like a sound or a smell. Or, like the way birds instinctively know that they have to migrate, if that makes sense.

[Seriously, comparing herself to a bird?]

I try not to.
