Welcome to Hawaii. All of the Hawaiian islands are now protected for their natural environment. An even bigger tourist attraction than it used to be, it is now home to some of the biggest hotels and condos around. The volcanoes on the island have long ago stopped erupting and have been named dormant, although lately they have been smoking quite a bit. This is the place if you need to get away from all the technical mumbo-jumbo of modern society. The old traditions of grass skirt wearing girls dancing the hula remains strong and visitors are still welcomed with floral necklaces. So kick back and relax, you're in the land of fun in the Sun.

Alex Reinfield begins to walk over to the stage, holding the microphone. He gazes at all of the audience, and he gives a grin. "Okay guys. Hey, I'm Alex Reinfield. I like to say hello to all of the ladies." He winks. o O ( Too bad that didn't help by chances at the auction." He sweatdrops, then he masks it with a grin. "I will play 'Loving Too' by Eilyah Bullock.

Alex can dance real good. However, his singing absolutely /SUCKS/. Nevertheless, Alex is preparing to sing. Prepare for the death fromt he Kareoke of Death people. The music is beginning to play in the background, and the human begins to dance to the beat of the music. He is doing excellent with the dancing, but the singing will change people's minds.

"o/~ I, cannot stop, thinking of you. o/~"
"o/~ Oh, you are my, baby. o/~"
"o/~ That I will never let go, from my HEAARRTT!! o/~"

"o/~ Oh no, I cannot stop from thinking of you, I cannot stop caring about you. I cannot stop loving youuuuuuu. o/~"

As for Alex's singing, can we say 'Off-key'? Meanwhile, the metool grumbles. "OW!!! Okay, nerp this." The metool is waddling over towards the stage, at a near distance from Alex. "Sorry brother, but this is for your own good." The metool is opening his mouth, seeming to charge up for something. However, as he fires, it isn't plasma ball. Instead, it is a rodeo rope, which is wrapping around Alex. Immediately as the rope wraps around Alex, the music changes to more of a rodeo music. Odd, no?

"Hey! What are you doing? Not again!" Alex drops the microphone while being tied up.

"...For your own good. Your singing sucks." With that said, the metool begins to hog tie Alex. With a smile, he is dragging Alex off-stage. However, be walks to the microphone. "...Sorry people. I hope your ears are okay." With that said, the metool proceeds to take Alex out of the stage.

Savannah Lioness has arrived.

Bolero blinks a few times as he gets no response, the Spaniard shrugs and grins. "Well, qu`e a comer?" he inquires curiously, looking around for a buffet or food line... Or something... Or... Ay chihuaha... What's that?

Fusion Phoenix flys in carrying two other repliforcers, Flammie style.

Fencer Naiad gets little anime swirls for eyes as she slowly makes her way to stage once more, looking a little shaky on her feet and her voice reflects this. "Well.. send me your -5 ratings.. I mean your votes now..."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Lieutenant Fencer Naiad transmits, "Can we get a medic in Hawaii? We may not survive Karaoke if it doesn't get any better than this."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Bolero transmits, "... Peh."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rigger transmits, "I'm sure I can do a few mercy killings."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Bolero transmits, "I suppose el Se~nor de Sonics will have to fix this."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Lieutenant Fencer Naiad transmits, "Someone write Alex up to sing the next time we catch a Mav."

Rigger winces deeply at the wailing from the stage. She's glad Axle took care of it at least, but... Eesh. "Oookay. Right. No singing for Alex, and no drinking for Axle." Her head shakes slightly as she begins to head for the little snack tables to grab herself something quickly. At least a drink if nothing else.

Chi claps ever so slowly... "At least he gave it a good try," Chi comments after a moment, doing his best not to wince. "I take it that he is one of your secret weapons for destroy the Mavericks?" he asks very quietly of Rigger.

Fencer Naiad sometimes this machine did have a "Death" setting. Specially after that last bit.

Savannah Lioness is dropped off by Fusion and smiles "Thanks for the ride." Then she takes a look around at the party. Catching sight of the snack tables, she heads over to check them out.

Flare Feline jumps off the back of Fusion, he's wearing beach-wearish cloths. Wait a minute... 'jumped' off Fusion? Didn't he just tear out his knee again a couple of nights ago? But what's this? He's... walking normally. His knee looks fine. There's no crutch and no limp, that's strange...

Rigger lifts a finger to wiggle in her ear as she shakes her head. "Not normally, no. Though it's sounding like a good idea now."

Bolero picks up a drink and a plate full of paella and poy. He then stalks towards the stage, waiting patiently for his shot at karaoke. "So... When can I go?" he asks... Oh, and there's a bit of a haze surrounding him. As if there were a heat wave shimmering about him.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus, seated near Chi and Rigger, calps slowly, optics possessing a slightly glazed expression. "That's... certainly some lung capacity." However, the long shadows cast by the flying repliod rouse her interest, and she turns to regard the two felines being dropped off, offering a cheery wave, as if verifying that they were indeed in the right area, and not in a testing range for secret, sonic-based crowd control devices.

Axle whistles a tune in the western style. Well, the metool is cheerful. "Wooo! Doggie! I caught myself a big one! Blimie!" He grins, then he is dragging the hog-tied Alex to Rigger.

Fencer Naiad 's fortunately undamaged ears pick of Bolero speaking, "You can go right now, com'n don't be shy. We'll only toss you out of the Falconis on the way home if you sing badly."

Phoebus is standing by Q2 and Chi and Rigger and all and says suddenly, "Y'know...", and then pauses, "Karaoke is so much more fun when you're watching it."

Savannah Lioness waves back to Quell and gets herself a drink and some snacks. An ear twitches, listening to the group about her.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus glances over at the other Commander, and smirks, "Oh, we'll get you up there after the other guy goes." She snickers slightly, and then flicks her wings again. However, she intently watches the stage, nodding to Fencer in acknowledgement of the officer's coordination efforts.

Bolero eyes Fencer. "Who said I'm travelling on the Falconis?" he inquires with a devious grin. The Spaniard then hops up on stage, "Well folks, time for el espa~nol to make this a good party." He grins impishly, "So get la cerveza, la comida, and get ready to have some fun." He grins tapping the off button on the karaoke machine.

Chi looks up as he notices both Flare and Savahanna being dropped off at the scene, and nods once to both of them. "Certainly... although I do not quite understand the attraction that some humans have for activities of this type. Perhaps it is some sort of cultural obligation?" he wonders after a moment, finishing off his drink. His expression darkens for a moment, although eh doesn't comment on what he is thinking.

Phoebus sends a radio transmission to Flare Feline.
Phoebus sends you a tightbeam radio transmission: "Gosh! You're alive!"

Fencer Naiad hands him the microphone, and goes over to see Flare Fox who has the drinks.. .oO(I won't overdo it this time. I never overdo anything. C'ept last time... and the time before..)Oo.

Phoebus receives a radio transmission from Flare Feline.
[Radio] You send Phoebus a direct message: "Eh? Of course I am, why wouldn't I be?"

Flare Feline strolls down the beach, walking quite normally. Has his leg been repaired? Seems so. He glances once over at Phoebus and the others and nods. Right now it looks like he's here to enjoy himself, for the first time in awhile.

Rigger reaches over to poke a finger at Chi in a teasing manner. "The 'appeal' is that it's nice to do something other than work, that's what. It's just for fun."

Phoebus sends a radio transmission to Flare Feline.
Phoebus sends you a tightbeam radio transmission: "Because ya seem to like getting the stuffin' beat out of ya."

Hailstorm Couatl flies in low, pondering this party. He lands shortly after, looking around. He stretches, deciding to let the reptile part of him bask in the heat.

Phoebus blinks a couple times, "Uhh....", he says softly, "Me? Up there? HAHAHAHA!", he laughs outrageously, "Hilarious! Someone with such fine humor should ... Sing Karaoke!", he elbows Q2 slightly.

Fencer receives a radio, goes for the Falconis saying she'll be back.

Phoebus receives a radio transmission from Flare Feline.
[Radio] You send Phoebus a direct message: "Like? I don't like it at all... thought it seems to happen yeah."

Phoebus sends a radio transmission to Flare Feline.
Phoebus sends you a tightbeam radio transmission: "*soft chuckle* It's alright, it's alright. Jus' enjoy yourself."

Savannah Lioness glances about. "Karaoke?" she giggles, stepping closer to hear the conversation "Can't be shy to do that."

Alex Reinfield mutters at Axle, "Let me go! Axle! I promise I won't si-" Now, he is muffled by the rope around his mouth. "Mmmffmmfmm..."

The metool is grinning at Alex. "....Just cool off for a moment..Oh, I'll be nice. If you sing again, I will leave you tied up longer." He smirks. Then, he starts to unwrap the rope.

Alex mutters, "...I know my singing was bad. But my dancing was great."

The metool nods. "Yeah, but your singing SUCKED! The suckiness of your singing outweighs your dancing."

Although the sun is a bit closer to sinking under the horizon, it still warms the area, and a small sae breeze rffles the beach. The luscious scent of citronella candles, posted for hte benefit of the humans, drifts on said breeze. Quell blinks as Phoebus answers her challenge with one of his own. She rocks back and forth, and chuckles. "Oh, I have fine humor, do I? Would never have heard anyone in the ranks say that one before. And I can't go rihgt now.... but sure, I'll do it before you. Let me see what good songs they ahve in here. I also like having some idea of HOW it goes..." She looks a little bashful, "And that's not a strong point for me. But hey, I can try, right? Sure, I'll go after the next person, then." She resolutely puffs out her chest and sets her wings in a delicate pose around her frame. "Now, let's see what I can do..."

Quell Quetzalcoatlus sends a sly glance over at Savannah, and smiles, "Care to assist me, Sergeant?"

Savannah Lioness uhms "Assist you in what?" She gives a curious look and hmmms, ears flattening slighty as she gets a bit nervous.

Chi grumbles slight. "Fun, of course..." he says after a moment, but gives Rigger a grin after a moment. "I understand... business will come tomorrow, so it is best for us to enjoy what time we have tonight..."

Quell Quetzalcoatlus perks. "Sing, what else? I'm sure there's no tune that two ladies, with our wonderful crowd control training, couldn't wrap our silver voice around." She chitters slightly to herself as she glances curiously up at the stage.

Flare Feline has a drink in hand (non alcoholic) and he walks up to Phoebus saying simply "Don't worry, I intend to." He then turns to the stage to watch the next Karaoke act. Mwargh.

Fusion Phoenix hase been there the whole time, realy, talking to some gumbies of his exploits. Then he hears the word "Karaoke." Oh NO!!! But then again, he has heard Sonic Banshee sing (rather well in fact) that one time, so there is a hope he will not have to gouge out his ears.

Hailstorm Couatl heads over to the location of the drinks, and grabs something at random, watching the proceedings, intently. I think...

Phoebus glances towards Savannah Lioness and Q2 and blinks. Uh oh. This looks like trouble. He looks back to Flare Feline and says, "Heh...well... good. I thought about making it an order but then I figured Skyblade'd show up and be miserable just to spite me."

Savannah Lioness looks to the stage, and shrugs "I dunno... not really that good..." She's actually lying, Sav has a quite skilled voice, she just gets very nervous singing in front of others.

Bolero ahems, before closing his eyes. From seemingly nowhere music starts to play. Specifically Beach Boys music. What song, you ask? Why, Kokomo of course. He smiles, opening his mouth, starting to sing, perfectly mimicking all the voices of the Beach Boys... o/~ Aruba Jamaica ooo I wanna take you Bermuda Bahama come on pretty mama Key Largo Montego baby why don't we go Jamaica

o/~ Off the Florida Keys
There's a place called Kokomo
That's where you wanna go to get away from it all

o/~ Bodies in the sand
Tropical drink melting in your hand
We'll be falling in love
To the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo

o/~ Aruba Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

o/~ Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

o/~ To Martinique, that Monserrat mystique

o/~ We'll put out to sea
And we'll perfect our chemistry
By and by we'll defy a little bit of gravity

o/~ Afternoon delight
Cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye
Give me a tropical contact high
Way down in Kokomo o/~

Repliforce Attack Hoverbike <Gamma> zooms towards the island. The pilot's hard to make out, but there's little doubt who it is

Repliforce Dropship <Falconis> comes to a rest on the island once more, the heavy door opening as Fencer lets the two passangers out.

Rigger leans forward in her seat to peer over at Flare with a grin. "How's the new knee working out, Flare? Kalinka did a pretty good job on it from what I saw."

Quell Quetzalcoatlus chirrs and bobs from side to side with the rest of the group, fairly enchanted with the tune. It certainly was an appropriate enough one, about getting away to paradise.

Fencer Naiad steps out of the Falconis, her boots making deep indentations in the sand as she calls out, "Hey! Is Bolero finished yet?" However she doesn't stray far from the Falconis, "Com'n Calvin.. we're all going to waste away waiting at this rate."

Axle grins while leaping to Rigger. "Oh yeah, as I.." He ponders. "Hold on. I'm going to see Aria.." Nerp Chicka Nerp Nerp. Sorry, couldn't resist using that. The metool is waddling towards the other metool quickly, and he grins. "Hello.."

Meanwhile, Alex is standing back up, muttering. "......Ow..." He glances to Rigger. "On the scale of negative ten to ten, how would you rank my singing?"

Repliforce Attack Hoverbike <Gamma> zooms towards the island, getting nearer and nearer. As the pilot sees the party, he sideslips to the right, to avoid any adverse effects on the partygoers from his entrance. the bike zooms towards a rock, hoverskips up off it, and lands on the beach about 100 meters downrange from the party, spraying loads of sand, but none of it near the partygoers.

Rigger looks towards Alex curiously a moment as she begins to think of a way to say it without hurting his feelings too much. Of course, Axle kind of gets her attention too. "Oh great. Thank god they can't breed." Or can they? The horror! "Well, let's put it this way, Alex. You still sing better than Guts Man."

Phoebus snickers softly, "Heh, owe most of this to Rigger then.", he glances towards the Falconis. Calvin, huh? Long time since he saw the bloke. He waves towards the Falconis in general. And as for 'Aria' or 'Arty' or 'I don't even remember the last name bit', she's nerping merrily along with the karaoke until Axle approaches and she says "Hello.", and then nerps again. It looks like Phoebus actually bothered to program in one vocal word besides Nerp. Of course he's probably gonna send the lass to EIT to finish her up.

Bridgit Cascio steps out of the Falconis, squinting slightly as she adjusts to the light. Oof. Been a while. Her paleness is only accentuated by her black swimsuit and dark khaki shorts. "You all right back there, Cal?" she asks, taking a moment to enjoy the air. "Man, it's good to be outta Seoul."

Calvin Brasseaux walks out with Bridgit, looking around quietly for a moment, before swallowing a small lump in his throat. "Thought you said this was gonna be a small thing, hon." he murmurs to Bridgit, as he straightens out finally, bending his artifical knees, and sliding his hand into the redhead's. "Yeh, I'm fine."

Bolero looks out across the crowds, a smirk playing over his features. Hey, these were orders from General, keep Repliforce morale up... And who's he to not play the classics in the interests of morale? o/~ Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

o/~ Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

o/~ Port Au Prince I wanna catch a glimpse

o/~ Everybody knows
A little place like Kokomo
Now if you wanna go
And get away from it all
Go down to Kokomo

o/~ Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

o/~ Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

o/~ Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

o/~ Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
o/~ Down to Kokomo...

o/~ Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo...
o/~ Down to Kokomo o/~

"Thank you, thank you. I'm Bolero and I'll be here toda la noche... Just call when you want a real song."

Flare Feline turns to Rigger "Yeah, she did. I can walk fine on this leg now it seems." Flare then takes a minute to be floored by Bolero's spam...er... his singing, yeah. "I was surprised on how well it turned out... but she is Dr. Cossack's daughter after all, I shouldn't be."
Bolero grins, hopping down off the stage, still not having touched the microphone... But that little performance could be heard all over the party quite clearly.

Savannah Lioness listens to the singing with a smile. She does not appear to be dancing herself, but her tail sure does. It's swaying and twisting about.

Bridgit Cascio blinks a moment at Calvin's reaction, and frowns a bit. "Well, it's fairly small," she remarks quietly, gently squeezing his hand. "It'll be all right. Trust me. C'mon," she coaxes, giving him a gentle tug. "We don't get out enough anyway."

Fencer Naiad hurries off to the stage once more, kicking up gouts of sand behind her as she hops up onto the stage once more, her waist-long azure hair getting blown in the breeze, "Alright! Who wants to- HEY! Someone shut it off!" Fencer takes a second to turn the thing on. When she does it plays it's "Intro piece" which comes in the sound of a really deep radio voice saying, "Karaoke Machine of Death 2215! The audience is now deaf, or they'll soon wish they were!" And Fencer follows it up by speaking into the microphone again, "Alright! Who wants to go next?!"

Quell Quetzalcoatlus ahems quietly, and then stands, clasping her hands as she grins slyly. "I've settled on a tune, if no one's interesting in jumping in line!" She waves a hand cheerily.

Gearworks Fox strolls down the beach casualy, listening to the tunes, before they get shut off. Deep Blue, his met, jumps off his shoulder, however, and charges down the beach towards the party as only a metool can...

Alex Reinfield chuckles at Rigger, "Thanks." Then, his attention shifts towards Axle. "......Uh huh." He sweatdrops at the metool's action. To Bolero, Alex is clapping for the Spaniard reploid.

The metool is winking at Aria, "Hey, how about me and you walk to the shores together, huh?" He grins at her. "Besides, the people here can take care of themselves." Though, the metool blinks, "Hold on.." The small met is sprinting towards the stage, "I'll go next. Though, this won't really be a karaoke song. This is something that all people can do. For that, I will need EVERYONE to stand up. I am going to show you how to do 'The Met'!"

Hailstorm Couatl would applaud the spaniard, save for the fact that he doesn't want to edn up spilling his drink, so he merely nods in approval, as he often does.

Calvin Brasseaux gets tugged, and tighten his grip on the picnic basket as he walks along. "Yeh, I know, hon." he grins a little. "Maybe I shoulda packed more food, eh?"

Rigger reaches up to clap her hand over her face as she groans softly. "Axle... You are not teaching people to dance. No. Bad metool."

Fencer Naiad grins her eyes doing this n.n for which her player has no word for and no one has yet to give me one as she speaks up, "Alright, First we'll have Quell and then we'll get the met up here."

Bridgit Cascio chuckles a little. "Naw. I'm sure they've got their own, anyway," she replies, trudging across the sand. If nothing more, they can mingle quietly. Calvin always gets so nervous, she muses thoughtfully, looking about the beach.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus nods towards Fencer, and then waves to Savannah. "No need to come along on this one, really. I'll be fine." She chuckles, and then takes the stage and mic, wings half unfurled as she regards the group. "Good evening ladies and gentlemen. I've been having a wonderful time, and have decided to give a little bit back in return. I'm aiming for something a few decades previous to what everyone else is doing, but it should be fun, anyway. The song? "Let's Do It. Cole Porter, 1928."

Savannah Lioness gives a soft smiles "I'm sure you'll do great."
Aria nerps in reply and whirrs, looking at Axle as he heads towards the stage. He's gonna sing! What luck! Anyway, the n.n is called the 'ditz face', Phoebus is dazed for a small moment, surprised that what started as a small party, turned into ... well ... a not so small party.

Fencer Naiad hands the mike off to Quell as Fencer hops off the stage, and looks at her datapad, and ponders entering her name in as the entry after Axle.

Bridgit Cascio hmms a little as she looks about. "Not that I can see yet, Cal," she answers presently. "But they sure are looking like they're having a lot of fun. And it's a beautiful location out here, too. If I don't know anyone, let's go greet people. Sound like a fair trade?" she asks, wandering about thoughtfully.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus sidles up to the mic, and nods, before taking a composing breath, optics bright with the thought of making herself a ninny in front of the group. But hey, it ws for fun, right? An upbeat, but decidedly classic music begins to roll.

"Birds do it, bees do it.." She then begins to pick up the pace, "Even educated fleas do it! Let's do it, let's fall in love!" A small twirl comes from the avian, who then continues, as the beat rises.

Romantic sponges, they say, do it
Oysters down in oyster bay do it,
In shallow shoals English soles do it,

Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it,

Let's do it, let's fall in love!
The chimpanzees in the zoos do it,
Some courageous kangaroos do it.."

She makes a pouty face, hamming it up for the crowd as she croons out in a more svelte tone,

"They say upper-class ladies do it,
When a gentleman struts...
Maybe even you and I could do it.."

She whips out her wings and jabs a finger towards the stage,

"Haven't you got the guts?!
I'm sure giraffes on the sly do it,
Even heavy hippopotami do it,
Let's do it, let's fall in love!

One more burst emanates from Quell as she spins again, one hand extended, rising with her voice, as the song wraps up,

Let's do it, let's fall in loooooo-oooovve!"

Quell then gives a chipper chuckle, before ducking her head down in a deep bow.

Gearworks Fox claps from downbeach, although that is surely drowned out by his somewhat rude metoo, who holoprojects a pair of hands, about ten foot large, clapping, to the sound of an audience's clapping and catcalls. It seems the met was -quite- impressed.

The metool is grinning, then he nods. "Excellent!" Next, his attention is shifting towards Aria. He waddles over back to her, winking. "So, how about it? You and me at the shores."

Meanwhile, Alex is clapping to the song. "That was good!" . o O ( ...Even if the lyrics sounded a bit misleading. ) He sweatdrops.

Savannah Lioness giggles softly as Quell sings. She has actually heard that song before, a classic. The feline claps loudly as Quell finishes up, enjoying the show.

Fusion Phoenix claps with the rest as the song finishes.

Hailstorm Couatl applauds this time, mainly because he's finished his drink. Now, just to wait for teh stage to free up.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus turns towards the clapping, and bounces some at the praise, before hovering off the stage and slinking back towards the benches, still fairly fired up from the show.

Axle blinks a few times, then he is smiling. "Excellent. I believe that I am up." The metool is sprinting towards the stage. "Now, let's see what we can do here.." He grins, "Hey, can you lower the microphone?"

Fencer Naiad comes up onto the stage after Quel leaves, taking back the mic, "Well, wasn't that wonderful.. Ok.. next we have... this yellow speedbump." With that Fencer lowers the mike for Axle, "Let's see what it can do." And with that Fencer hops off the stage.

Savannah Lioness smiles as Quell returns "You've got quite a nice voice." she pauses "And guts to get up there."

Phoebus blinks. Oh wow. Now a metool is singing.. He shakes his head and heads over toward Fire Fox to reprimand her for spiking the drinks.

Axle grins towards Fencer, then he chuckles. "..Nice. Though, I am a powerful speed bump. Anyways, I am not really here to sing. I am, but I am getting you guys to dance. Now! Get up! Stretch! You will enjoy this. I am going to teach you how to do 'The Met'! Trust me, you will enjoy this." He smiles.

Alex decides to do what the metool says, standing up to his feet. "Okay...Let's get up guys." He smiles.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus ahems, and glances over at Savannah. "Thank you. It's a wonder, I'm used to screaming with it over fires, and well, now, battles. That does remind me of something, though... but it's something that can wait until after this party."

Fusion Phoenix stands up. And is promtly shot. No wait, he isn't shot. But he does stant up.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus, who was en route back to her seat, gives the met a quizzical look. "Something tells me I'm going to regret this..." But, gamely enough, she doesn't sit.

Gearworks Fox is still to far to get caught up in Axle's dance, but Deep Blue isent. She charges on-scene, and looks straight up at the stage. Waiting patiently, the baby-blue met watches the stage.
Bridgit Cascio chuckles a little at the song from Quell, turning to murmur something into Calvin's ear... before arching an eyebrow. "The Met?" she echoes, disbelievingly. "They named a dance after those little pesky hardhats?"

Savannah Lioness hmms, ears perking up... Stand...? She shrugs and since everyone else seems to be starting to stand up, she does so as well. If you're likely gonna look stupid, it's best to make sure others do too. =)

Calvin Brasseaux murmurs something back to Bridgit, before chuckling. "I nearly broke my artifical foot on one of them one time.."

Flare Feline is still there, mingling, yep.

The music is starting to start. It is the Cha-cha dance. The person who was singing the lyrics is taken out. Axle shall take over. "...Now, to do 'The Met'. I took this one song of the Cha-Cha dance to best use this. Though, I added a few features to this for my standards."

"To the right!" The metool is stepping to the right with his short leg. "To the left!" Then, his left leg steps back." "To the back now ya'll." The right leg is taking a step back while he bounces.

Though, for those with legs, it looks a bit easier. Alex is following the step of the metool, smiling. "This is actually pretty good. Come on guys."

Deep Blue stares up at Axle. She follows patiently... Clearly unimpressed... But she dances, hoping it'll get better

Rigger just covers her face as she watches Axle and Alex go about doing 'The Met', trying her hardest not to break into laughter. "I'll uh, pass," she offers while clearing her throat somewhat. A breif glance is cast downwards to examine her attire pointedly. "Best to avoid accidents."

Fusion Phoenix joins in the dance as insturcted.

Fencer Naiad watches the whole little thing go on, but she isn't getting into this one.. it looks silly.. But at least the met looks cute hopping around.

Aria does follow the dance! Right leg! Left Leg! Left Leg back! Back to normal! Bouncing all the way now! Bounce bounce dance dance.
The metool is grinning towards the crowd, then he smiles. "Now, do the cha-cha!" That is when the metool is sweeping his legs around, almost like he is sliding. However, he isn't moving back or forward.

Alex is performing the cha-cha along with Axle's command, chuckling a bit. He extends a hand out to Rigger. "Come on Rigger, just dance. It's fun."

The metool is grinning once again. "To the right! To the left!" First, at each command, Axle is demonstrating on which direction to go. "Now turn around." *THUMP* The sound of the music in the stereo makes that sound to ephasis. "Turn around." *thump!* "Now, let's do the BREAKDANCE!!!!" While doing so, he flips his body upside down. The body of the metool is twirling around in a rapid pace. It is as if he is spinning like a top. It is a shame. Bass is missing his favorite part of the dance.

Fencer Naiad wonders if this is just a scheme by the met to make certain persons in the crowd bounce a lot.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus frowns to herself, and looks around the crowd. Sighing, she than shakes slightly, and ponders how to best carry this one out. And then, inspiration seems to strike. The avian chitters, and then hunkers down into a kneeling position, waggling

Deep Blue hmmms at Axle, and follows the pace. Her steps get more lively, but she still seems to be unimpressed. She does emit a low nerp, though.

Savannah Lioness glances up at the met, watching it hop about. She can't help but giggle at him twirling around.

Fusion Phoenix follows untill the breakdance part. . o O (Do the WHAT! With this helmet?) O o .

Precisely why Rigger isn't bouncing. Though that's more out of paranoia in her case than anything. She shakes her head somewhat dubiously at Alex with a laugh. "No that's alright. Really."

Hailstorm Couatl just STARES at the Met. "..."

Phoebus just sits down and stares...This .... This is ... ... Not a hallucination? Aria follows the dance routine like a MASTER MET! She's one of the best, after all, Former Robot Master qualilty. Hooah. Whirr.
Bridgit Cascio blinks a moment, staring at the breakdancing Met. "Like hell I can do that," she replies, shaking her head slightly at the dancing Met. "That's insane. I couldn't do that when I was young," she grouses to Cal. So old and crotchety, she is.

Calvin Brasseaux grins. "I'd disagree, but that's confidential." he winks, shaking one of his legs. "Hard to do any of that with these." as he passes by Rigger, "Oh, hello."

Alex Reinfield does the dance as instructed. Well, he begins to perform a break dance to perform a breakdance. Let's do the breakdance! Alex then starts to pull himself up.

The metool grunts at the opinions, then he says, "Well, I hope you enjoyed the faint dance. Though, it looks alot better for humans to do than a met does." With that, the metool is breakdancing himself off of the stage. "Goodnight people!"

Alex chuckles faintly, then he sweatdrops.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus glances up from her sprawled position, and chatters, "Well, thank goodness. Someone? Help me?" A silvery ahnd raises in the air above the pile of wings and legs.

Rigger glances over at Calvin as he passes. A look of recognition flits over her face, and she offers a polite nod. "Oh, hey. Nice to see you again." Her gaze shifts towards Bridgit a moment and she asks, "The woman in the bathroom I presume?"

Fusion Phoenix pulls Quell from the sand, and flips her to a standing position. "There you go."

Bridgit Cascio blinks a moment at Rigger before looking back at Calvin. "Ohhh right," she drawls in remembrance. "That was when that little girl came to the door with the knees, huh?" She coughs slightly, perhaps even a bit shy? "Yeah, that'd be me. Bridgit Cascio," she introduces herself, holding a hand out to Rigger.

Savannah Lioness gives a bit of a giggle "Well that was certainly interesting."

Ten arrives from the Sky Above North Pacific.
Ten has arrived.

Fencer Naiad steps up to the stage, raising up the microphone again and taking it in her right hand. "Well Isn't that cute? I didn't know mets could.. dance.. sort of. Doesn't it just make you wanna take them home with you? Now then I'm going to go next and after me will be Hailstorm." Fencer then takes a few moments to set the machine.

Quell Quetzalcoatlus gives Fusion's wrist a firm grasp, and then utters a low 'wheeee!' as she is momentarily airborne before settling on her feet. She dips her head in thanks. "My thanks, Fusion. Enjoying the party so far?"

Flare Feline is still there, mingling, yep. His player's tired, mwargh.

Rigger reaches out ot take the offered hand with a grin. At least she wasn't running now, that was nice. "Nice to meet you. I'm Rigger."
Fusion Phoenix nods at Quell. "I've been having a great time here. How are you doing these days?"

Chi continues to sit nearby the main portion of the entertainment, being his usual dour self and taking in the overload of 'culture' that seems to be taking place at the moment. He does smile everyone once and a while, but doesn't say to much. It appears that Chi (who's player had been having to idle too much x.x) is enjoying himself... about as much as he usually does.

Bolero yawns and leans back in a chair, munching idly on roast pig.

Bridgit Cascio grins a bit. "Nice to meetcha. You've already met Calvin. I was, uh, not feeling so hot that day you came by," she manages to half-truth. Yes, it was medic-phobia.

Calvin Brasseaux grins. "See, it wasn't just the plumbing."

Quell Quetzalcoatlus mmphs. "Well enough. Found myself a bit carried away with the singing. Was quite fun. I think I needed the change to cut loose, though, you know?" She shrugs lightly, her wings rising and falling with her shoulders. "You know what they say about increase in ranks, right? Double the honors, double the horrors? And I've had my fill of promotions, that for sure." She utters a low groan, but then shakes her head. "But, no need to dwell on that, for sure, it will be staring me in the face come tomorrow!" She stifles a chuckle, sighing a little as she notes that the sun has slipped below the horizon, finally. She slips out the half-folded sheet of bluish-white paper, and continues to fold it as she listens. Her fingers slide over the sheet, forming an eight-way set of triangular petal shapes.

Hailstorm Couatl just watches what's going on, with another drink. Something alcoholic.

Fencer Naiad takes a few moments and finally taps up a song with a quick and upbeat guitar rift, the wind flowing through her azure hair. As she opens her mouth the sing in Japanese you realize that main voice, a male tenor, hasn't been taken out and Fencer molds her cool voice into Duet with it. The song is title Seventh Moon and can be found in Fencer's +oocfinger

o/~ When I look up at the purple panoramic galactic highway o/~
o/~ It's like a shooting star through my soul o/~
o/~ When the racing heartbeats build up in this city that never sleeps o/~
o/~ It's time to pray for the unseen future o/~
o/~ I begin to hear that melody o/~
o/~ And that mysterious voice just won't let me go o/~

Phoebus stands back up and lets out a long sigh. It's just that he feels a little tired after all this fun and singing. Maybe he should go find someone and chat with him or her. Hmmm.

Fusion Phoenix taps his foot to the music as he watches Quell fold the paper.

Ten somehow found out about the party. No, her player does not know how. If you ask him, he will get angry. J/K. She happens to hear Fencer Naiad singing as she lands nearby. "Wow, whoever's singing is good!" Excited, Ten skips on into the audience seating area and looks for a seat.

Savannah Lioness glances up at the stage, pondering making the trek up there herself. She does quite enjoy singing, but it is a lot of people to sing too... "Maybe I should sing something." she muses to no one really, though anyone nearby would hear. She smiles, hearing another voice up on the stage, and turns her attention up there.

Gearworks Fox has -finaly- reached the audience area, and slides in, watching from behind the last line. Partly he cant seem to find a place to sit, partly he seems shy.

Flare Feline is someone to talk to. Or not. Whatever. But he's still there mingling and doing stuff, yep.

Alex Reinfield glances over towards Fencer, giving her a smile. Well, her voice is beautiful. It is a shame that he didn't bid for her during the auction. Oh well. He is giving her a smile, listening to the song.

Meanwhile, Axle grins, "Now, where is Aria?" He begins to sprint around to find her.

[Radio: (D) Public] Snake Man transmits, "Yet again, the Huntersss fail. Isss thisss newsss?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Freeze Man transmits, "Not to me."

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Ahahahahaha. What a bunch of losers! Loooooooooooooser!"

[Radio: (D) Public] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "What are you talking about?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Metal Man transmits, "Hunters got sent home again with their tails between their legs."

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "Oh Guts Man. I found someone for you./"

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Can she bench press 40 tons?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Freeze Man transmits, "It's not neccesarily a she."

Quell Quetzalcoatlus manages to peel her optics away from the origami long enough to peer at the stage, and murmurs, "Quite nice, that one is. I know that there were a few others that wanted to do it as well... or that I teased about it, rather." She nods towards Savannah, meaning to catch her field of vision, before asking Fusion, "All duty related thngs aside, how goes with you?" Two of thepetals are twisted forward, and reverse folded to pucker out into what look almost like legs. Smaller folds produce another pair of legs, for a total of four. Hmm, what could this be>

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Not a she? Not interested."

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "Yep! She also can sing too! I think. She said she could."

Chi looks over curiously as Ten enters the area, and with a smile waves for his sister to join him near the dancing area. "Ten!" he calls out - although Chi is by far one of the largest Reploid's here, so he's not exactly hard to miss. It also makes activities such as Twister and Limbo a pain when you are fourteen feet all and not all that flexable.

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Does she hate Hunters and Forcers and think they're a waste of our time?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "um. Lemme check."

[Radio: (D) Public] Snake Man transmits, "Sssome of the Huntersss took it upon themssselvesss to try a recon mission of the dam sssite, and when their little ssspy wasss dissscovered, they attacked in a mossst futile manner. And then ran home with their tailsss between their legsss. Again."

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "What's up with the Hunters turning to terrorism trying to blow up dams? Don't they know that dams provide electricity to those around it? Thus bringing a 3rd world country into the future to be equal among all the other countries of the world?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Freeze Man transmits, "Well, we built it, and they don't want us to have nice things."

Ten spots her brother as he calls out to her. She happily skips over to the minotaur while calling out, "Chi! Heya brother! Been having fun at the party?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "They're communists."

Savannah Lioness turns towards Quell, just catching the nod. She gives a bit of a smile "Well I know you think I should."

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "I believe so, Guts."

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Excellent."

Hailstorm Couatl just watches the kareoke. And drinks. But mainly watches.

Fusion Phoenix chuckles before replying. "Oh, pretty good all told. It's just that I've had so much to do lately that I haven't had much time for things other than duty. That's why I'm so glad to be here."

Fencer Naiad tosses her her back with the music, body moving with music, her blue eyes closed as she continues with the words, her voice a cool accompaniment to the male, as she finishes the chorus, leaning foreward, the winding catching all of her hair as the final note drifts on the wind.

o/~ Oh tell me seventh moon, what this burning in my heart is... o/~
o/~ Where are you trying to take me? o/~
o/~ Shaking blue seventh moon, shake to the rhythm o/~
o/~ I'm just trying to find answers in this crazy dance o/~

[Radio: (D) Public] Snake Man transmits, "I notissce a dissstinct lack of 'good guy' repliesss here. Do you sssuppossse that they're all too embarasssed about getting their aftsss kicked again?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "They're too communist to speak on a global channel. They need permission from Generalissimo!"

[Radio: (D) Public] Freeze Man transmits, "You know that'll bring 'em out of hiding."

[Radio: (D) Public] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Nah, we just don't want to give you the satification."

[Radio: (D) Public] Big Bad Sword Man audibly facepalms at the Global chatter.

[Radio: (D) Public] Freeze Man transmits, "See?"

Fencer Naiad clears her throat a bit, letting the song finish as she says, "Alright, and next we have Hailstorm. Come on up Hailstorm." And Fencer passes the mic to him when he gets up here.

[Radio: (D) Public] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Simple pleasures for simple minds I guess..."

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Man you sound pretty disgruntle. You should be a postal worker."

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "Um. When do you want to see her? And..um..where?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Freeze Man transmits, "I don't find this entertaining at all."

Chi chuckles under his breath, and takes another sip of his drink. "Enough," he says quietly, watching as everyone wanders around and generally tries to unwind as best they can. "Phoebus convinced me to come along and see if I might unwind before tomorrow. It works... to some degree, I think. But I've never been one to relax as completely as you, Sister," he adds with a chuckle that sounds quite a bit more like a rumble than an expression of humor.

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "How about Eurasia in that club district?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "Alright. *pause* Now?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Sure what the hell."

Quell Quetzalcoatlus gives Savannah a shooing motion towards the stage, her demeanor not scolding in any way, but almost closer to maternal. She nods towards Fusion, and murmurs, "Trust me, I'm painfully aware of that. Say, want this when I'm done?" She gestures with her free hand to the faintly pearlescent folded mass before continuing to fold out a long tail and then angled wings. The final identity of the flying quadruped is still a bit of a mystery. "I usually wind up giving these things away to anyone who happens to have the bad luck to be around when I'm done." She chuckles.

Phoebus looks towards Flare and says, "Enjoyin' yourself yet?", casually, he seems to be feeling alright, but he's not dancing around and partying like many of the other Forcers seem to be doing.

Alex Reinfield smiles warmly, then he is clapping towards her song. "Ooh! That's great." He offers her a smile, then he grins. He decides to have a talk with Fencer. The human is pulling himself to his feet, grinning at the thought. While approaching her, Alex is regarding to Fencer. "You were great." One would wish that they could say the same for him.

Meanwhile, the metool is waddling towards Phoebus. "Hey! Where did your met go?"

Flare Feline looks over to Phoebe as he sips his non-alcoholic drink "Yeah, sure am. It's good to get to unwind a bit with everything that's happened." He eyes the stage for a moment. He has a look on his face, like he has something he wants to say, or sing, or something, who knows.

Savannah Lioness sighs and nods to Quell, slipping quickly over to Fencer to let her know she'd like a turn to sing and to compliment her on the beautiful song, since Fencer seems to be the one keeping track. After doing so, she slips back to Quell and smiles "I'm gonna sing. Satisfied?" she smirks.

Fusion Phoenix smiles. "If you want to give it to me I would be glad to have it." He looks up from her folding hands to see who will take the mike next.

Ten doesn't have any trouble recognizing that her brother was laughing. Ten smiles as she says, "Well, I'm glad you are managing to have some fun. If you are having trouble relaxing, you could borrow my mallet." Ten giggles at that.

Hailstorm Couatl slithers up to the stage, taking the Microphone from Fencer. "My thanks." He says to her. He won't give you any warning about his song, but the music starts. It's an ancient song this one...And a spammy one...And not appropriate to his rank, but who cares?

Hey, what else would you expect fro ma brit?

Phoebus *ahem* says, "Mmhmm...", he pauses, "A lot of people're singing... I really didn't expect that to happen, y'know?"

Quell Quetzalcoatlus smirks at Savannah as she dips her head closer to hear the other femme speak. "Awright, good to go. Perhaps we can really arrange for a double-team next time, and knock 'em dead. Good luck up there. I'm sure it'll be good." She glances over the rest of the crowd, nodding towards those with whom she manages to make eye contact. She then nods towards Fusion, as the singing, or rather, clipped speech, begins to rattle out. She almost shudders, and stares at the stage, before breaking out into sheer laughter at the wit of the music. One, two, three more folds, and the snaking head of a dragon, complete with crest emerges, before beign shoved into Fusion's hand. Quell breaks into light clapping at the piece.

Bridgit Cascio continues to watch the karaoke, and looks quietly amused as she looks over at Cal. "You all right?" she asks presently, one eyebrow arched.

Fencer Naiad takes a seat on some of the equipment after handing the mic off, she crossing her legs and smoothing a lock of hair over her ear. The nymph wearing something much less formal than at the auction, "Thank you.. Hey.. I think I recognize you.. wasn't that met of yours trying to bid on me at the auction?"

Calvin Brasseaux hmms. "Yeh, why wouldn't I be?"

Fusion Phoenix hoots in favor of crushing the paper dragon, showing his approval of the song, and anyone that can roll it off at full speed.
Bridgit Cascio squints slightly at Calvin, and purses her lips. "You know full well why I'm asking that question," she replies presently.

Alex Reinfield sweatdrops towards Fencer, then he nods. "Yeah, He was trying to bid on you. I believe he was bidding on you for me." He eyes the metool. . o O ( I hope.. ) He chuckles a bit.

Meanwhile, the metool shouts at Phoebus. "HEY!" He grins, "Where's your met?"

Savannah Lioness smiles "Thanks." to Quell "We'll see how this goes first, then you can convince me into a duet another time."

Calvin Brasseaux puts his hands on his hips, and smirks. "I'll have you know that I'm fine and well, Bridgit." he murmurs in defiance.

Chi grins. "I don't think that I will need to go quite that far, Sister," he says quietly, standing up to go hunt down another drink. "I just know that he is going to be there tomorrow - and I wonder, sometimes..." The Minotaur shakes himself slightly, and shrugs. "But the future will play out as it will - there is no point in dwelling on it," he adds reassuringly to Ten, smiling as he goes over to the refreshment bar.

Ten blinks. "He? Who is going to be where tomorrow?"

Chi looks back over his shoulder at Ten, giving Rigger a nod as he walks by. "Byte. I can feel it in my circuits... he will be there..."

Bridgit Cascio pffs quietly at that, and drags Calvin off along the beach. "C'mon. What've you got in that picnic basket anyway? I think I saw crabcakes. I like crabcakes," she notes, cheerily.

Ten blinks again. "Chi, please don't let thinking about Byte ruin the party! We're here to take a break from the war, to just have some fun! Here, think about biting into some snacks instead." She giggles.

Calvin Brasseaux gets dragged off, never to be seen again. Oh wait. "Shrimp poboys, crabcakes, some bread pudding, salad, and wine."

Fencer Naiad looks over to Alex with her deep blue eyes, crossing her arms before her as she speaks in her cool voice, "Well you know my name, but I don't believe I've heard yours."

Savannah Lioness heads over to grab herself a bit more to eat before she gets her turn to sing.

Alex Reinfield smiles towards Fencer warmly, then he gazes over at her deep blue eyes. Well, he may as well introduce himself. "I'm Alex Reinfield.." He extends his right hand over to her. "It is a pleasure to meet you."

Fusion Phoenix heads over to grab a met cola, before returning to his place to abmire his new gift.

Hailstorm Couatl continues singing, no matter what people want corrected.

And it's the final lines, both chorus and Hailstorm singing...
o/~But still in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,o/~
o/~He is the very model of a modern Major General!o/~

And the song finishes...And the snake 'bows'.

Gearworks Fox watches from the back ranks, quietly. His metool, however, is in no way shape or form quiet, as she hoots shrilly through her speaker at the 'singer.' whether in praise or beratment is somewhat unclear, though.

Chi shakes himself slightly, and takse a large mug of something from the table before he turns back to Ten. "Depressed? No, I'm not depressed - there is no reason to be afraid of that, Ten," he adds, still trying to be reassuring. It was hard to describe, and not something he was going to go into at this party. And then there were the other problems that needed to be dealt with - there was a reason why Chi was a bit more distracted than usual of late.

Fencer Naiad takes Alex's hand for a moment before she says, "I'll be back in a moment." and then walks up to the stage again slowly, taking up the mike and her voice transmits over the crowd, "Well that was certainly intresting.. Next we have our very own Flare Feline up. Com'n up. The mic won't bite you." With that she waits for Flare to come up and take the mike before she goes to sit down again.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bud transmits, "Bowwowbiddybombbiddybowwowbombiddy."

Ten can tell when something is bothering her brother. "Chi, something is bothering you. If it's Byte, please don't let that monster ruin things for you. It would be what he wants. You'll get your chance."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Hound Dog's radio emits a crunching noise. Like a can. "Sah-ray."

Flare Feline is having a merry old time mingling when Fencer suddenly calls on /him/ to sing. Well that was unexpected. Shrugging, he puts his drink down and walks up on the stage. Gee, last time he was on stage he was bought by a crazy old man who tied him up and blasted him with a duck. But that won't happen again... probably. He cycles through the list of songs, and as he makes a choice, he speaks up "Well, before I get started, there's something I want to say..." What is it he wants to say? It's coming in the next pose, raar.

Alex grins towards the Repliforcer who previously sang. He would clap, but he already has his hand out for Fencer. Alex was about to make an attempt to turn on the charm. Ehn, ah well. Alex is giving a shrug, then he nods. "Sure." He grins, then he is starting to wait. The attention is shifting towards Flare Feline, smiling as he awaits for him to come up. "This shall be good." He then calls towards Hailstorm. "You did great."

Meanwhile, the metool is grinning. "Alright!"

Chi sends a radio transmission.
Ten receives a radio transmission from Chi.

Hailstorm Couatl nods at Alex. "Thanks." He syas, before going to get another drink. Mmm....Alcohol.

Ten blinks in shock at something Chi says to her over the radio. She does her best to listen to Flare Feline, but her main focus is by far her brother. She replies to his message.

Ten sends a radio transmission to Chi.
Chi receives a radio transmission.
Chi sends a radio transmission.
Ten receives a radio transmission.

Flare Feline seems to be ignored by most of you. Bleh. He continues anyway. "Well, today markes my first year anniversary of when I first finished Repliforce Boot Camp, and first set foot on Repliforce Island. I still remember my first day here well. It's hard to believe a year has gone by sometimes. And while we have lost Repliforce Island, there's no need to get our spirits down. Repliforce is the strongest army in history, and I'm proud to be a part of it. And there's the Maverick Hunters, our allies and I'm also proud to do what I can to help them as well. And when we stand together, we're truely a force for good to be reckoned with. This world may have seen some hard times... but working togther we'll bring it out of it. And here's hoping for another year in Repliforce." And with that he finally selects his song. Woo. And it's 'So in the World' by Yasunori Matsumoto (It's in his OOCfinger, and no there's no english translation. Just assume he picked it up in Neo-Tokyo)

Fusion Phoenix continues to enjoy the party, even as his player logs off for the night. Later all!

Ten takes a moment to listen to Flare's song. Then, looking back to Chi, she says, "The music really is great tonight. Maybe if you listen to it, you can take your mind off of your problems. You'll be able to think more clearly when you are relaxed, and can figure out what to do.

Hailstorm Couatl applauds, having finishes his drink at the end of the song. Yay.

Chi sends a radio transmission to Iris.

Savannah Lioness grabs herself a seat, enjoying the musical stylings of those who journey onstage.

Chi receives a radio transmission from Iris.

Chi speaks over his radio for a moment, and shakes his head once as he walks over to pat Ten on the shoulder. "Do enjoy the party, Sister..." he says warmly, before he waves to the party in general. "It has been fun, but I must leave for the time being. Hopefully I will be back later!" he says - before moving to commandeer the Gamma.

Ten waves to her brother, still looking troubled. "Good luck, Chi. I know you can do what needs to be done! Please don't doubt yourself."
Chi has left.

Finished singing, Flare steps off stage. It seems most everyone ignored his heart-full speech too, bleh. Well Flare goes and randomly mingles with people for the rest of his night as his player logs off. Mwargh.

Gearworks Fox was paying too much attention to the song, because he swivels when he see's Chi snitching his ride, and swears softly. "Oh well..." He shrugs, and wanders to the other side of the little camp, looking for someone or somthing.

Fencer Naiad is about to sit down again when Flare finishes and she takes the mic an announces the next person, "Next up we have Savannah Lioness. Com'n."
