Laraan was still a counselor, primed to read people and she studied Orvos’ expression carefull. “Don’t worry, your secret is safe with me. If somebody on my homeworld had witnessed this, I’d be on my way to the mountains… that is our sort of detention and psychological profile readjustment.”
her gaze swung to Michail.
“Where do we go from here? This is all new to me, I don’t have full control over it the way I do about my first channel. I cannot help but thinking it’s all a part of this big plan of Q… or however you wanna call the old guy.” she said. She didn’t mind Orvos hearing it. With his ability, he was more certainly part of the big plan than anything else.

Orvos’s ears perked at the mention of Q. He kept quiet for the moment, noticing Michail about to speak.

Michail was grinning from ear to ear, “Where do we go from here Laraan, the answer to that is simple and yet unbelievably complex. Within this room we have a joker in a pack of cards. We have Orvos, a man out of place and time, you a woman who can stop time and your husband who can communicate with time. If you then add T’Pon and S’Raal’s progeny then this gathering has been lovingly named “The Time Bandits”. He started to pace as he warmed to his subject, “The biggest issue with the Temporal War is that people from uptime know what’s going to happen and can stop it through a frightening array of time paradoxical insertions”. He pointed at the three standing before him. “You people have the uncanny ability to create temporal blind spots where things can be done that will leave absolutely NO record of what’s been done… a veritable trump card in a pack that up until now was always stacked against us”.


Laraan looked at each of them in turn and her eyes finally rested in the dark depth of Stark’s eyes. “Shouldn’t we tell the Captain, and S’Raal and T’Pon? I mean, if we are some weird kind of temporal x-men…?” she posed the question. Lack of communication in such an important and complex topic could cost lives as she well knew.

Orvos sighed. “Yes, she ought to know. What you share with her is your prerogative, but I am only able to share so much of myself. Many here don’t even realize I’m El Aurian, let alone having been to the Nexus.” Whether he had shared it already or not, now they knew. But even that wasn’t everything. No. Hardly.

“Time bandits…” he said aloud wondering if it sounded cool enough. “Sounds like a group of temporal miscreants to me. Then again, its a nice guise for us lot.”

There was a part of him that was curious who else might end up landed with them. He was building connections amongst the crew, and he was certain that is was the entirety of the ship that he was sent to be here for. But this group…they were something else. Perhaps a secondary mission? He was still figuring it all out, but nobody else needed to know that.

Stark grinned viciously, “Yes, we’d better let the Captain in on it,” his grin widened, even more, becoming positively feral, “She’s going to be so happy”.

Michail pursed his lips, “Not so fast, Temporal Prime Directive gets us around the need to share beyond the people in this room, even S’Raal and T’Pon need to be kept in the dark about some things or else we run the risk of creating our own paradox”. he paused, checked his wrist communicator and then continued, “We will tell her and we will tell them, but the timing of that has to be handled well”. He turned to Laraan, “We’ll need you to use your talents during that meeting as well when we’re ready for it”.


Laraan spread her heands. “I will try Michail, but please remember that it’s new to me and I haven’t learned to control it fully and that it requires a lot of energy, more than I can soak in from around me, so most likely, the number of times I can use it is limited - unless I don’t want to shorten my life span.” she looked at Stark and pursed her lips. “although… maybe that’s not such a bad thing.” she added.
Would it really be that bad? If she lived a full life with Stark, and given she was only 130, she could easily get rid of two to three hundred years. Why keep living without Stark in any case.

Stark looked up sharply, “Don’t you dare,” he said forcefully “We’re going to find a way to extend my life, not shorten yours,” he said emphatically.

She gave him a warm smile and reached out, gently brushing her fingertip down his left canine tooth that was revealed, her light grey eyes full of love.
“All right, deal. Nothing is impossible in this weird tale.” she said tenderly.

Michail piped up, “I’m sure it won’t come to that Laraan, we’re The Temporal Investigations Division, not Section 31. By the way, your team’s name in full is the Time Bandits Directive or” he paused with a naughty smile, “Or TBD for short” he chuckled, “Dulmur came up with that, Lucsly absolutely hates it”.


She gave a chuckle. “I’m starting to like Lucsly then. Right, let’s do this.” she said.

    OOC: What’s next? :)

OOC Totally negotiable but I have another sword saga up my sleeve as a side sim that you’re both welcome to join me in (others too if they want to). Other than that we could advance this in all three of our backstories if we wish. I’m going to hold on mine a bit while I get Risa and Rura Penthe up to speed :-)

OOC: I’m all up for it whenever you decide to kick it off. At least now with Julien you’d have somebody who can actually wield a sword, cause Laraan sure can’t! :-D

Orvos kept his opinion on the matter reserved. TBD. He would need to get to know this Dulmur more, that was certain. Humorous man to be fair.

“Ah, I think we ought to let one person share with the captain. Likely someone close enough to her to soften the impact?” He stated aloud, eyeing Stark.

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Stark sighed, “I had a feeling I was going to get the short straw… again. I’ll do it, but only if everyone here is okay with it being me”. He looked at Laraan pointedly and studiously ignored Michail. The guy was having way too much fun for Stark’s liking, people who loved a plan, often didn’t love people. Stark was sure that between them however they could keep from being manipulated.

Laraan nodded with a smile.

“Done then” Stark said with some finality.

OOC In the last two hectic weeks of school here in tropical Guangzhou. Once I hit the fair shores of New Zealand for a holiday I will buckle my swash and the Seven Swords Saga shall be off :-) Thanks for indulging me, everyone.
