Re: [JMC_Blue_Dwarf] Rosette & Rufus - \"Dr Pepper\"

Who: Jay, Rosette
Where: Captains office
When:- After Rufus set loose the Hamenopstera.
Rosette crossed the drive room and reached the captains office, unusually, the door was locked, so she turned around she  and spoke to one of the drive room staff. "Is he in there?"  she asked.
"Yep." the crewman said, nodding enthusiastically as he did so. "He did say he didn't want to be disturbed for a while though."
"Well this is important." Rosette replied "I'm sure he won't mind..."
She walked away and banged loudly on the Captains door.
"You can't do tha...." the crewman said, trying to pull Rosette away.
"Captain!" shouted Rosette, "This is security officer LaChance, I have word from Rufus about 'the package'"
"Erm.." came a muffled reply from beyond the locked door. "Just a...just a minute..."
A lot of scuffling was heard for a few moments, then then lock was released and the door slip open.
Rosette entered, and Jay gestured toward a chair across his desk from him, he looked flustered, which Rosette put down to some stress, or a virus brought across from Fourth Base.
"What did Rufus find?" Jay asked, "And why isn't he reporting this to me himself?"
"Well," Rosette said "I comment on the latter...., but the you were right to be worried about the former.."
"Go ONNNNNNN!" Jay said, his sudden outburst accompanied by him flinching uncontrollably.
"Erm....are you OK sir?"
"Fine, carry on..."
"Well, it's some kind of a Hymenoptera mutagen.."
"What?" Jay replied, "What kind of mutaGEEEEEEEEEEEN!"
Rosette ignored Jay's odd behaviour and continued to explain what she and Rufus has discovered, being interrupted every now and again by Jay making odd noises. When she was finished Jay spoke.
"What are Eckerslike and this Roebuck person up to?" he asked rhetorically.
"I don't know..." Rosette replied "But Pancake would kill to get his hands on this..he's made no secret of the fact that he wants to become a hybrid..."
"Do you think this could be related with his fantasy of becoming a captain in a joint JMC-bug alliance?"
"You can't possibly think he's telling the truth about that?"
"On this SHIIIIIIIIIIIP!!!" Jay burst out "Anything's possible...I'd rather not take the chance.."
"I suppose so..."
"Listen" Jay began "Aside from those who already know about it, I want this kept under wraps. We can't risk Pancake finding the hamster OR the mutagen, I want you to do whatever is necessary to contain the hamster, and keep the mutagen safe for the time being...I don't even want you telling HaRRISSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! You're in charge of this mission, you report directly to me, you know as well as I do how dangerous the bugs are....I can't think of anyone better for this mission."
"Aye sir.." Rosette said "And what will you do?"
"Get in touch with Space Corp Command. If the JMC are planning something like this, they'll want to put a stop to it...Eckerslike might OWN the Blue Dwarf, but like all the officers aboard her, I'm a Space Corp loyalty is to them..."
Rosette nodded, and got up to leave.
The door slid shut behind her, Jay quickly reached across and hit the door lock button, and pushed himself away from his desk, his trousers around his knees. "You think she knew I was here?" asked Katrina, crawling out from under the desk, wiping her bottom lip...
<Sorry about the ending guys, I needed to make an otherwise serious post have something funny in it! Tag all o'ya! Rosette can TRY to keep this quiet, doesn't mean she'll be able to!>

This is another JP by the (hopefully by now) famous duo of SMAndy & Becca<snip>"You!" he shouted back. "you're supposed to wait until I let you in! You should at least know that one. It's rule number 4!""Seymour... you're not wearing a shirt. How is rule 4 applicable here? Anyway, you haven't even thanked me for fixing up your room since I broke it..." she added, turning to leave."Fixing it? You missed a bit. There's a big spot for a famous painting there!" Seymour replied. Rosette turned on one of her high heels."Hey! That painting IS famous!" she said, pointing at the spot. "it's gone... You've let yourself get robbed!"meanwhile, Rufus stood just outside the room, feeling a little left out...</snip>"go on then, what painting was there? I'm sure I'll know it by name." Seymour said with vindiction. He was certain Rosette woudln't be able to name a famous painting other than the Mona Lisa, which everyone knew, and most people had. (So many really good forgeries and all...)"It was the Fallen Madonna." Rosette replied instantly. "You know, the one with huge... tracts of land.... if you know what I mean."Seymour stood gawping. "You do realise you just said that while wearing... whatever that is...""You're a fine one to talk." Rosette responded with a smirk. "We'll leave you to it..." she said, sneakily grabbing one of the packs of Earl Grey that she'd left on a nearby tea trolley. Seymour was looking up at the space where the fallen Madonna had supposedly been, and took a step back after the door had closed."Well... maybe she does have some taste..." he found himself saying."Come on, let's go find a kettle." Rosette said as the door closed behind her."Look, I think I have one in my lab, makes it easier than trying to explain to my Dad why we just paid a visit to Seymour who is dressed in leopard print with you in a strippers outfit.... D.. did you need to get changed at all?" Rufus asked, stringing together prehaps the longest non-scientific sentance of his life."Only if you think i should" she replied with a wink, and a flourish of the lab coat she was wearing over the top. She also thought that this was essentially Rufus inviting her back to his place.After a moment of thought, and leaving Rufus feeling a little overwhelmed, she added "i probably should... this isn't even mine"<snip2>"There's still chance to break out of here, steal the package and take it to Roebuck. He's booked a room on the Corridor of Infinite Perversions.""I'll do it!" Justin said. "Which room?""It's room #388" Potential said. "The package has been sent to Rufus' lab for investigation. You still have time to steal it and take it to Roebuck.""I'll do it!" Said Justin.Potential grinned, and disappeared."Micky. I hate you. But I'll forgive you if you help me break out?" Justin said. "Please?"</snip2>Rufus tapped in the security code, placed his palm on the scanner and then looked into the retinal reader."Security disengaged. Welcome, FeBuggure Rufus, 'M'" The disembodied female voice echoed over the speakers. "Thanks Tria." He turned to Rosette "Redundant V.I. that my mum owned. Passed to me when she... you know... Installed her to operate the place when I was away or, you know... Stuff." For a genius, he wasn't very good with words sometimes, especially around girls. The little bi-plane was whizzing around the ceiliing and making fut-fut noises, clouding over the hamster cages.Rosette smiled back... There was something about the shy scientist that drew her closer, but this time, she just followed him into the room, and put the things down. She'd put some kind of effort into her appearance this time, at least introducing her hair to a brush for the first time since she'd stopped becoming a bug...She sat down on one of the chairs, and looked at the lab desk... "Hey, whats this?" she asked, picking up a note. "Its from the captain... 'analyse this asap'..." she picked up the small box, but didn't open it. She had no idea what was in it, and Rufus most likely had equipment to handle dangerous chemicals.Gingerly, Rufus opened the parcel. Inside was a green vial of liquid, suspended in a metal frame. He carefully extracted it and peered into it."Hmm.. Well it's green...." the scientist said, holding it up to the light. "Slightly see through..." He tapped the edge of the glass vial, nothing happened. "Doesn't react to sound. Thats good. Means it probably wont try to kill us.""It's a liquid!" Rosette exclaimed, wondering how a liquid could try to kill someone."Look, i've seen wierder stuff on this deck. Just trust me." He replied, not looking up. Feeling in his element, surrounded by science once again. "It could still try and kill us, if its a poison..." Rosette replied. The science of it all was over her head, but common sense still gave her a chance."good point." Rufus replied. "It needs to be tested.""on what? haven't you got a machine that can tell what it is?" Rosette replied, looking at the various computers and test equipment that lined the walls."It's faster to just feed it to something." He said almost uncaringly, and looked at the wall of adorable hamsters."you're not..." she said, but she'd seen the look on his face. It was too late. He dripped a drop into the water tray on one of the cages. As if it were trained, the hamster licked it all up..."They are reslilient enough. If it's poison it'll just cough a little and i'll know not to drink it or spill it. Look what the worst that could happen? It's not exactly going to turn into a hymenoptera hybrid is it? Who'd be stupid enough to bring that abord? It'd be taken to the best scientist in the galaxy." It was at that moment, that there was a tiny screaching sound from the cage, followed a tiny hissing sound."Just so you know..." Rosette said, watching the little creature as it convulsed "I think you are the best scientist in the galaxy." she said, almost as if she knew that Rufus shouldn't have said anything.The hamster convulsed a little more, and screeched in a more insectoid way. Before long, it had broken out of the cage, and was making a bee-line for the air vent on the other side of the room."You have to destroy the rest of that..." she added as an afterthought"The captain wanted it though. I'll text my sister to get after that thing. You get onto J.. Jay and we'll just hope that Justin doesn't get hold of either one of these two things..." Rufus said, not liking the idea of being on the same ship as his ex-girlfriends brother let alone in a room. For a conversation.<tag Jay/Justin>
