Ho Ho Ho, It's Christmas?

Karmen was taken slightly aback when her cat, Selina, showed up-she usually didn't bother. She smiled when the elf male asked if she could also turn into a person. "No, she can't, but I think she sometimes thinks she's a person anyway." She told the little man. "I'm Karmen, it's very nice to meet you, Dexter."

Mrs. Claus tells us that her husband has a construction site at our North Pole, but when she lost contact with him she came here for our help in finding him. I've told her we will offer what assistance we can.
He glanced at the elves before continuing.
These two are two of his.....er elves.

Suki gave no visible indication of surprise at the way events were unfolding although her expression was profoundly skeptical. Santa Clause was a myth along with his flying reindeer and these 'elves' were probably genetically engineered. Her ship-self was amused because in a way Suki was becoming almost as skeptical as her mate. "I would be interested in learning what aspect of genetic engineering or technology allows you to shape shift Mia." She declared.

The girl tipped her head to one side in confusion. She shrugged slightly. "Well, it's just magic really," Mia said casually. "My people use technology for other things, but otherwise those of us with the talent use our magic. Watch."
Mia glanced around then reached up for a pen on LoP's desk. She showed it to Suki then moved her hand over it in one direction. In its place was a small, sharp dagger. She smiled innocently. "See, magic."

She stroked Selina's fur as she contemplated what could have happened to Santa-obviously there was trouble on the North Pole of Kroyous, but of what kind, there was no telling.
"Do either of you two elves know what happened?" She asked.

"Do either of you two elves know what happened?
She squeaked and shook her head
No, not really...you'd best ask Mrs C....I don't know anything..I just..we're here to help that's all
Celeste whispered to Herk
"magic, elves, flying animals......it makes it so much easier to believe in JMT don't you think?"

Very nice work, Mia. Is there any reason you changed my pen into a weapon instead of something harmless? He smiled as a look of concern crossed her face. No, I don't think you planned anything evil. I'm a teacher of what we Trancers call the JMT and I find myself teaching anyone with an ability that could be cause for concern if used wrong. James here is head of my security forces and turning a pen into a weapon could get you in trouble with him if he thought you planned on using it on me.
Okay everyone, we will meet at the Purple Horizon in an hour. Athena will have cold weather gear onboard. He turned to the elves and Mia. I'm not sure she will have anything in your sizes though.

Mia smiled at the lady named Karmen, her eyes darting to the white cat on her lap. Mia loved felines of all sizes and kept wanting to stroke the beautiful cat. She knew it was a regular cat but could tell that the animal loved her human.
Si moved closer to Mrs. Claus as Suki spoke to Mia. "There is no magic. Just science you don't understand."
Mia wasn't offended or hurt in any way. She just didn't understand not believing in magic. It was real where she came from.
Then Mia gave a small gasp as the small dagger flew out of her hand and into LoP's. She felt bad about alarming the man who was so kind to help.
"Is there any reason you changed my pen into a weapon instead of something harmless? No, I don't think you planned anything evil. I'm a teacher of what we Trancers call the JMT and I find myself teaching anyone with an ability that could be cause for concern if used wrong."
"I'm sorry, Sir," the girl replied, still sitting on the floor. She meant no harm to anyone. "I usually change things into something useful...knives are useful. It wasn't meant to be a weapon. I'll be more careful, I promise."
Mia didn't want to get into trouble with her new friends.
"Okay everyone, we will meet at the Purple Horizon in an hour. Athena will have cold weather gear onboard. I'm not sure she will have anything in your sizes though."
Mia stood up and moved with Si and Dex. "Don't worry about me," she said. "I can provide my own clothes when the time comes. Or make do with something small."

Karmen smiled at Suki-she hadn't expected to change her mind, but she had to say something. She knew from experience that something existed. She remembered back to before she'd left Alan-now that one put Scrooge to shame-he went so far as to not celebrate the holiday at all, right down to no gift-giving, but, somehow, she had always received a gift on her dresser.
"We'll see." She said, still smiling.
She looked over at Mia. "I didn't mean to sound accusing, I was just curious." She told the little elf.
"No, I don't know what happened either." Dex said. "And I can also provide my own cold-weather gear when the time comes."

"Well if you folks would care to show us what data you have. I mean by that location and layout of buildings as well as what you can tell us of the insides of the building. I gather that with magic internal size is not always the same as the outside of the same building." he said taking a seat and taking up another of the controls.

Now, let's go people.
LoP waited until everyone else had left and Athena had arrived before he left to get his lightsaber and forcelance.
Athena, this is Mrs. Claus, Mia, SI and Dex. Please take them to the Purple Horizon and be sure they are comfortable. I'll see al of you in a few minutes.
When LoP left, Athena turned toward the woman who seemed to her to be the leader of the small people.
I am Athena, avatar to the Purple Horizon. Is there anything you require before we go to the ship?
Posted 06 December 2007 - 12:32 PM
*Not real,* she "said" to Si and Dex. *Like other two that brought us.*
Mia rubbed the top of her head along Athena's leg and wound around her legs, then sat between the woman and Mrs. Claus and the elves, waiting for what came next.

Nice feline form. You will problably smell non-biological odors since I am basically a machine, even though a very advanced one.
She looked up at the other's puzzled expressions.
I am an android based on a very sophisticated technology handed down by the Vedrans. My brain is synthetic and tied into my ship self. I guess it may be complicated, let's just say I am Athena your friend.

LoP arrived at the ship with his lightsaber clipped to his belt and a forcelance in its' holster. He nodded at everyone and settled into the command chair. He scanned the readouts that Athena was sending to him and smiled his apporval. The ship was ready and waiting for the rest of his staff.
He accepted the cup of coffee Athena handed him ans took a sip. It seemed amazing to him that Santa Claus really existed, a person he had only read about this same morning. Magic, flying reindeer, elves and who knew what else was waiting for them. He spoke softly.
This could be fun.
Posted 07 December 2007 - 04:45 PM
Fun? She wasn't so sure, but she figured he didn't mean literal fun-at least she hoped he didn't.
Dex sat down in his seat as he looked around the big ship-he almost felt swallowed up in it, but he like it. He just hoped these people could help them find Mr. C. before it was too late.
Posted 08 December 2007 - 12:09 PM
Mia even jumped onto LoP's command chair, walked casually across his lap, and jumped down the other side. Satisfied at her perusal of this part of the ship, Mia leaped onto the back of Karmen's and purred at the lady who liked cats. *Hello...,* Mia said, figuring the lady would be able to hear her. She liked cats and believed in magic, it was only inevitable.
The white cat eventually came to settle near Si and began to knead the seat cushion and turn in circles until she found a comfortable position. She lay her chin on her paws to rest before they went to wherever they were going.
