ask-corporalkohut:

As Tammy dropped her wrist from noting the time, she came face-to-face with a rather high-ranked solider, judging by his uniform. 

She was half-expecting him to formally report an abnormality of some sort spotted outside the quadrants, but was disdainfully pleased to hear she’d been invited to dinner instead. While it all seemed commonly courteous, she couldn’t help but swallow back the tightness advancing in her chest.

Nodding brusquely to the young man, she began to follow behind him, assuming Kohut would tag along behind her like a lost puppy.

Plenty of time, indeed. Enough time to brace herself from any impact that was targeted at the main hall that evening. Perhaps she was worrying too much. What an awful quirk she was cursed with. Brushing it off, she kept her head forward and her jaw square. They’d find out soon enough.  

Kohut was rather surprised as well to hear that they were being escorted  to their chambers to change into more suitable clothes for dinner. He would have thought that they were going to be tipped off for a disturbance or something..

He had a feeling that something wasn’t right though…

and it was unshakeable…

yet, he decided to go along with it. They followed the soldier to their guest rooms, which, coincidentally, were right next to each other.

"Here is where the two of you will be staying while on board the ship," the soldier said, dutifully, "You will find that the luxurious accommodations will be to your liking, as well as almost everything in the room is voice activated.

I will see you two downstairs,” the soldier said, nodding again, and then saluted.

He then, turned on his heel, and left.

Kohut watched him leave, before looking to the sergeant with a knowing look.

Something wasn’t right…

he just didn’t know what it was..

Kohut’s uneasiness wafted thickly through the atmosphere. She could almost hear the uncertainty buzzing in his head. Then again, the feelings were regretfully mutual. 

It seemed to have taken ages before they finally reached their rooms, to which Calhoun turned to watch the soldier leave before glancing back up to the Corporal. His expression seemed like a solid slate, but Tammy could see right through him. 

She decided to shift their minds from the topic of complete danger that possibly surrounded them by commenting on the rooms before them. 
"Luxurious." She repeated the solider, "I can live with that."
She turned completely to Kohut. 
" I ‘spose we’ll get ready and oblige to the Captains offerings. I’ll meet ya down there, I need to make a phone call…" 


With that, she attempted to show him one last sign of assurance by lightly slugging his arm. 
 ”Stay on yer’ toes, solider. We’ll be fine.” As if to prove the solider’s description the door automatically slid open to allow her to enter, before sliding closed again as she fully stepped inside. 

She took a good look around the room she had been settled in. It was extraordinarily high-tech with an incredibly large amount of elegance laced throughout. Impressive, she thought. Before she did anything, she whipped out her cell phone and dialed Felix’s number, who answered on the first ring. 

"Tammy—" He began, but was cut off by Calhoun’s low grumble. 
"I’m not making it home tonight." She said, her eyes focused on the toes of her boots. There was a pause on the other end, but she could hear the handyman shift uncomfortably wherever he was sitting. 
"When will you be back?" He inquired softly. 

Calhoun swallowed. Who knows what could happen. So as long as she was in her game, dying wasn’t an issue. But if a war was to break out, she could be there for months… 

"Soon." She replied. "I don’t have much time to chat, Fix-it. I’m sorry." 
"I understand…" Felix answered solemnly. 
Calhoun reluctantly said her goodnight’s and I Love You’s before hanging up and finally beginning to get herself ready.

ask-corporalkohut:

"The fact they needed our help alone is a red flag." Calhoun grumbled over her shoulder. 

"Any news of an invasion would drive this place to dust within a few minutes. I suggest we keep to ourselves until it’s absolutely necessary for the civilians to evacuate." Impatiently, Tamora glanced at her watch. 

"Agreed," the space marine said, nodding curtly as he followed her.

They made their way down to the corridor and were about to head back to the great hall when they were stopped by a soldier dressed in Class A uniform.

"Sergeant Calhoun, Corporal Kohut," he said, nodding to them curtly and saluting them respectfully,

"The captain says that I am to escort the both of you to your quarters so you can make use of the wardrobe digitizer. Once you are done, you may join us in the main hall for dinner. The Captain is giving his speech, so the two of you have plenty of time.

If you will follow me please.”

He then, turned on his heel and headed up the stairs towards the guest suites.

ask-corporalkohut:

"A terrorist attack…" Calhoun said to herself as the captain left, after grimacing at his flirtatious wink once he was out of sight.

She turned her head to look at Kohut, their expressions doing all the talking. The information had come and gone so fast, it was still taking Calhoun a bit of time to register what was actually happening. 

Turning on her heel, she motioned for Kohut to follow her out of the captains cabinet. 

She thumbed through the folders, her eyebrows knitted together with concreted focus. 

"Who would’ve thought relations were that bad in the IFOP…" She said quietly. Clearly this was top-secret information, and she must keep her voice down just in case any idiots were daring to eavesdrop. 

"Well," She exhaled, handing the folder off to Kohut to look through. “No one looks familiar as far as the suspects go. The only thing we need to worry about is how to warn the civilians without causing a rioting panic." 

Kohut followed her closely, listening attentively as she spoke,
 while he looked through the folder,

"I hear ya…

Usually these things are locked up so tight that they usually don’t require our help…

things must be pretty serious…

and dignitaries usually don’t listen well when they hear news that is capable of causing panic…”

"The fact they needed our help alone is a red flag." Calhoun grumbled over her shoulder. 

"Any news of an invasion would drive this place to dust within a few minutes. I suggest we keep to ourselves until it’s absolutely necessary for the civilians to evacuate." Impatiently, Tamora glanced at her watch.

blue-the-dragon: Blue chuckled. "Course I'm sure. I can always make others. Go ahead, they're yours if ya want 'em." She gave the sergeant a gentle smile. "I'll even throw in some wooden targets I also made if ya want."

"Don’t worry, we got targets." Calhoun replied with a nod of her head, gesturing to the practice bases that littered the quarter end of the battlefield. 

She gave Blue another appreciative smile.
"Much obliged, Blue."

blue-the-dragon: "Oh, it took me a while t'make these. A good long while." She nodded as she sat down, placing her clawed paws on the floor. "Where I originally came from, dragons had their own civilization and culture, lived side-by-side with humans. Humans introduced us t'the sport of archery and taught us t'make them. And so, the sport and craft was taught t'me durin' my whelp years."

Calhoun almost shook her head. It was such a beautiful, thoughtful gift…

"Are you sure y’just want to give ‘em away to me?" It was clear Tammy was trusted, but she didn’t want to seem greedy. 
"I honestly… can’t thank y’enough, Blue."

blue-the-dragon: She opened her wings, revealing the items she held. One of them was a hand-crafted bow: smooth, shiny wood, metal grip. thick white string and many ancients symbols painted on it. The other was a quiver filled with arrows; smooth wood, inside lined with soft silver fur, and symbols painted around the outside in blues, reds, yellows, black, and white. "I made these."

Tamora couldn’t remember the last time she shot a bow and arrow. It must have been years, at least. 

The crafting of each item, down to the last detail was so breathtakingly professional, Calhoun’s mouth was agape for a few seconds before she closed it. She gently took the gifts from Blue’s claws and marveled them.

"Shoot, Blue…" She mumbled, "How long did it take ya?"

blue-the-dragon: "In that case, I've got somethin' for ya." She slithered across the area where she had previously put down the objects she was going to give. She held them both in her front paws and covered them up with her wings so Calhoun wouldn't see and stepped forward.

"Is that so?" Tammy cocked an eyebrow, her smile still slightly abroad.

"Y’didn’t have to, Blue, but thank you."

blue-the-dragon: Blue chuckled and nodded again. "I'm so happy t'see ya again. I wish I knew what t'give ya as a welcomin' gift," she said, searching through a deerskin bag she had. "Hey, wait a minute. Do you like shootin' at targets?" she asked, getting an idea.

Calhoun was pretty surprised that Blue was so happy to see her. She didn’t think she was the missing type at all.

She was about to protest until the words shootin’ at targets escaped the dragons mouth. A smile crawling across her lips, Tammy nodded.

"Hell yeah I do."

charlottelabouff: *snorts* You don't remember me, do you? It's Kenzie! Your little twin, the annoying one who constantly reminds you of your FABULOUS ass. Anyways, welcome back!

(( Omg you changed your URL! I had no idea gomen ))

"Oh yeah, I remember ya, kid."
Tammy cleared her throat, nodding. “Thanks, by the way.”

blue-the-dragon: "Yeah, it's a new game that was plugged in, not been here too awfully long." She shrugged. "Bought a lotta my buildin' materials from there, too, so I built my cabin in the woods of another game and after my original game was unplugged, I moved into it." Her adventures in the woods on her hunt had caused her to bring back the smell of the forest with her.

"Ah." Calhoun nodded again. “‘Spose that explains why everyone’s walkin’ around with strange lookin’ parcels and whatnot."

charlottelabouff: *peeks in, grins* Well look who's back! *lazy salute* I missed you and your yelling, the dash has been so quiet without you!

Quirking an eyebrow at the woman poking her head into her game, Tamora played along, considering she didn’t look harmful whatsoever.

"That’s an odd compliment." She said, "It seems a lot of people have been missin’ me, as far as I’m concerned."

blue-the-dragon: "Aw, it's okay, Sarge. And of course, yer welcome." The dragon sighed. "Since my game was unplugged months ago, I'd been buyin' books and stuff from the Sims game, some of which were cookbooks and I'd been learnin' t'cook human food." She nodded.

Sims?" Tamora repeated slowly, simply uttering the word caused her to grimace. She hadn’t heard of such a game before.

blue-the-dragon: Blue nodded, obviously in thought as a few soft reptilian sounds escaped her. "Yeah," she said. "Oh, by the way, didja get the food that I brought to yer house yesterday? I felt like cookin' more than usual and I'd caught a bunch'a fish from Animal Crossin'. I figured I'd fix a plate for ya so none'a ya would have't cook 'er anything." She sat down on her haunches in the same way as a dog would, long, dinosaur-like tail curled around herself.

"Felix did." Tammy replied. 

"I meant t’thank you for that, but I’ve been too caught up with my troops to do much of anythin’, really."

blue-the-dragon: Blue gazed back up at her. "Deer, rabbits, bears, ducks, and I also fish. Anything that has meat on it. I'm a carnivore, so it's programmed into me t'hunt." She smiled, revealing long tyrannosaur-like fangs; kind of looked like a saber-toothed cat from the front. But despite the long fangs, it was a warm, friendly smile. She stopped to scratch an itch, looking like a big reptilian puppy, then standing back up again.

"I thought so." Tammy chuckled, thinking of how strange it must look to watch a rather meager dragon take down animals of twice, if not the same the size of Blue herself. 

Calhoun wasn’t used to having so much free time. She’s been secluded either at home with her husband or on the battlefield training her troops. There was supposed to be a celebration in her honor along with the other three goofballs she came to know a year ago, but she was debating on weather she should go or not. 

"I haven’t been keeping track." She thought aloud, "Y’know, of how long I’ve been idle. But, uh, it’s been a year already…" She smiled a little, reminiscing.

blue-the-dragon: "I've been huntin'. Just came back from a hunt, and so I figured I'd go wanderin' around. Not very much else t'do right now," she said. Cold, dry blue scales glistened in the light overhead as vertical reptilian pupils gazed up in her direction.

"Huntin’, huh?" Calhoun nodded, for hunting was somewhat planted deep into her code. It kicks in when she needs it most, and lately, that’s been all the time.

She glanced back down into the dragon’s eyes, forgetting how short Blue was. For a dragon, at least. 

"What’ya hunt for, anyway?"
