so joining a department is one of the main things people around here suggest doing
but unless you plan on working 24/7 that leaves a lot of down time for you to fill in
so other than work/sleep/eating/cleaning there's a few options you can take

rec rooms: there's a few different kinds so here goes

fitness- gyms and swimming pools. equipment's already there inc. swimsuits and towels
entertainment- gaming. stuff like pool tables and darts
bars- they all seem pretty well stocked but you're not gonna find anything from home unless it comes in your locker
media library- again, nothing from home that didn't show up for you.
viewing rooms- with huge screens for all your space opera watching needs, apparently (whoever that is, you ever want to close up after you?)
holodecks- gonna have to ask the tech-types to explain that one for you

then there's the clubs people run too. i know fight club is still a thing. no idea if anything else is still running

and in related news, lacrosse
me and a friend used to play here a while back
he's gone now but i guess i kind of miss playing
anyone interested?
i've got a mountain of equipment already so just let me know

[ hello tranquility, it’s thomas on your screen. he’s sitting on what looks like the floor, his back up against the bed. there’s faint sounds of movement, someone shoving things around, but thomas doesn’t seem to be paying much attention to it. ]

I had some--we have some questions. No one has to answer on here, but I thought it’d be fastest if I just..asked. [ he looks up, over the camera at the other occupants of the room, maybe for prompting, or for permission, before he keeps speaking. ] I wanted to ask about two jumps back, the jump where people weren’t waking up. I didn’t wake up. [ there’s a pause, thomas rubbing his fingers along the edge of the lens restlessly as he picks his words. ] I had some other questions too. About the jump. How it works, when get in the pods in the first place, if anyone knows anything about it.

[ thomas leaves the statement hanging for a minute before taking a breath and plowing on. before he can get anything out, he’s interrupted when an off-screen voice finally speaks up, a little muffled by the distance.]

And what the shuck is up with that blue klunk? Why we gotta wake up standing?

[ (you can almost hear newt rolling his eyes from where he’s not visible--his very distinct voice pops up in the background. ] No one’s gonna know that, Min. [ the questions minho's asking aren’t important, more grievances than anything. minho isn’t enjoying his first months. when thomas gives him A Look he sighs but stays quiet.

thomas is obviously trying to show some restraint, not rush out every word, but the next bit comes out in a rush in spite of his best efforts. he's clearly decided to plow onwards before he can be interrupted again. ]

And I need to know if W.I.C.K.E.D. means anything to any of you. If anyone's ever heard of it before.

Don’t forget about the supplies, Tommy. [ newt appears in the frame then, way too close to it before he backs up to sit on the bed next to thomas. he's still a little banged up from his and minho’s adventure with the “grievers” before the jump, and holds up a finger in the feed. ] Back home, even before we knew the name proper, WICKED used to put their name on all of our supplies from the Box. Boxes of food, clothes, stuff for the Glade--all kinds of klunk. If this place really has them involved, they’re gonna have somethin’ like that to show for it, yeah?

If it has them involved. [ tommy says, more to newt and minho than to the audience at large. ] If anyone here has seen anything like that.

[finally the last of the mighty gladers comes into the shot as minho sits down in front of newt on the floor, back resting against his shins.] Or if you’ve got ideas about the people keeping us here. WICKED didn’t make it easy to find out much about them the first time. Could be upping their game, making us think we’re all safe. No reason to label things when we’ve met our Creators.

[ there’s a pause, thomas looking at newt before back into the lens. thomas hasn’t met anyone. not yet. he’s a step behind, but he’s not going to let that deter him. newt meets his gaze with eyebrows raised, saying something without a word, and reaches down to pat the top of minho’s head where they’re sitting. good plan, min. ]

We’re in room 008.009. If you wanna come talk to us in person.

[ thomas finishes, before disconnecting his advice. ]

( ooc: black is thomas, blue is newt, and red is minho )

[The video is shaky, obviously taken by someone who is both running and unfamiliar with how to use the device. But Minho doesn't care much about quality or the fact that the first half of the video is a blur accompanied by the found of running and heavy breathing.

He's running through the ship as fast as possible, trying to navigate a maze he's never been through before. At home he would know where to lose his pursuer, how to get enough of an advantage to be able to stop and breathe. Here he's at a disadvantage because of the unfamiliar ground, but at least he still has the stamina to run fast. Normally, the odds would be slightly in his favor.

Unfortunately, he's being chased by not one, but two Grievers.

When he comes up on a T in the corridor, he fakes right but goes left at the last second. The Grievers try to follow but end up tangling together in a horrific pile of mechanical limbs and sluggish flesh. It gives him a lead, at least for the moment.]

Still think this isn't WICKED?!

[Minho hasn't seen the PSA about boggarts, and even if he had, he wouldn't trust the people who posted it. He's new to the ship and has a grand total of two friends: Newt and Thomas. He trusts them, and they're the intended audience for this post, but it's hard to figure out filters when you're on the run.]
