[Have an Admiral, everyone. He's grinning like the bastard he knows he is. He may be slightly unhinged in that 'Hollywood crazy' kind of way. And he has a lot more melanin than this icon does, but I couldn't find any black guys wearing this costume, so let's all pretend shall we?]

There seem to be a lot of new faces around here. I don't remember authorizing this! The next batch isn't due for a week at least...

[AHEM]

As your Admiral, Supreme Commander, and the guy doing the steering, I hereby declare the 'wander around in confusion figuring out what's going on' flood well underway. By about a day or so. Well, I've been busy, this ship doesn't move itself!

Questions will be met with cookies. Complaints will be met with cookies in your least favorite flavor. And if anyone gets murdered this weekend, remember that suffering builds character!

The Doctor wasn't too sure that this was the guy. It seemed too simple, too pat. There had to be a catch somewhere. But still, it was a lead and he had to follow it up.

There are children on board! I don't know what kind of man you are, but have some compassion, please!

Cheer up, my good man, best they learn while they're young.

Cookie? [offers via video as if there's no logistic problems there] It's chocolate chip.

Now for shame, just who do you think you're talking to?

If you're the man responsible, then I'm talking to the man who's going to reverse it, heaven help me.

All right, all right, we're not exactly scheduled for children this week so if you insist...

...hm. That's odd.

You're not really the Admiral, are you.

That's terribly rude of you. Of course I am!

I suggest you admit it, so that half the ship won't start gunning for you.

I certainly am the Admiral, there's just been some...technical difficulties...

I love cookies.

What's your favorite kind?

Do I need a favorite kind? Cookies.

Well then. A gift basket of oatmeal raisin will be delivered to your room post-haste.

I don't know if you're actually in charge of the cruise or what, but this is the best boat ever.

Admiral! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

[Pause]

Where's the bar, Cap'n?

[gives directions that will lead you halfway up and down the decks before you locate it, though you'll get there eventually. and a gift basket of beer-flavored cookies will be delivered to your room.]

Don't do anything I wouldn't do, kid!

Oct. 30th, 2010 05:55 pm (UTC)
Man, you're the king of the party boat! I don't think I'm gonna do stuff that you've not done!

[Then, after a period of drunken roaming, he finds the pub.]

I found it! WOOOOOOOOOOOOO

...Why can't I go in?
amagicalmystery
Oct. 30th, 2010 06:28 pm (UTC)
It MIGHT be kinda-sorta-maybe unmanned at the moment. What with all the confusion.
buywithme
Oct. 30th, 2010 06:33 pm (UTC)
I can pour my own drinks. I just...

[Trying to shoulder the door open.]

...Need to get in...

I have a question! What are the laws around here?
amagicalmystery
Oct. 30th, 2010 05:59 pm (UTC)
Ah, good woman!

You'll be helping these lowlife criminals to reform to respectable members of society. Use your discretion as to how! Anyone causing trouble will sent to Level Zero with extreme prejudice.
ichoosefight
Oct. 30th, 2010 06:00 pm (UTC)
So I get to pick and choose the laws? [ She sounds a little indignant, how dare you! But she's actually quite pleased by the idea. ]
amagicalmystery
Oct. 30th, 2010 06:10 pm (UTC)
Well, you and your fellow Wardens. Fairly standard societal stuff: don't kill, don't steal, help little old ladies cross the street, that sort of thing.
ichoosefight
Oct. 30th, 2010 06:36 pm (UTC)
I'm not a warden, I'm a cop.
amagicalmystery
Nov. 1st, 2010 12:53 am (UTC)
Wardens are like that. Only in interdimensional space.

Thank God, someone in charge! Um...can I go home now? [sad, pleading face]
amagicalmystery
Oct. 30th, 2010 06:00 pm (UTC)
If you didn't choose to be here, you must be an Inmate. What have you done wrong, my good man? Come on, out with it!
timesbureaucrat
Oct. 30th, 2010 06:16 pm (UTC)
I didn't do anything wrong! [He says very defensively.]
amagicalmystery
Oct. 30th, 2010 06:28 pm (UTC)
Really? Not anything? Ever?
timesbureaucrat
Oct. 30th, 2010 11:38 pm (UTC)
Well...there were a few...little...

But nothing that hurts anyone!
amagicalmystery
Nov. 1st, 2010 12:54 am (UTC)
Hmm. What was your job when you were alive?

(Normally I'd know but there seems to be...interference...)
timesbureaucrat
Nov. 1st, 2010 02:41 am (UTC)
[ignoring the 'were alive' part, because at this point he's had so much weirdness overload that it just doesn't register]

I'm just a budget accountant. I work for the IRS. [more pathetic sadface]

Supreme Commander?

[Pause, then he says, tentatively, in hushed tones:] Did the... Big Giant Head send you?

Can I have some cookies?
amagicalmystery
Nov. 1st, 2010 12:56 am (UTC)
Of course you can. What's your favorite kind?

(Hm. You're not even supposed to be here today. Some kind of interference...)
thegooddrjones
Nov. 1st, 2010 01:00 am (UTC)
Jammy Dodgers!

I'm not supposed to be here today?

[A rather concerned looking frown, her brows arched and she leaned forward a bit.]

Is that bad?
amagicalmystery
Nov. 1st, 2010 01:27 am (UTC)
Order up!

[A basket of these to Martha's cabin! Assuming all this cookie-giving is actually happening. It probably isn't.]

It's strange. Another kinderflood isn't scheduled for...hm. Who's responsible for this? Don't they know who I am?

Well, don't you worry your pretty little head, just avoid anything with teeth and everything should be fine.
thegooddrjones
Nov. 1st, 2010 07:27 pm (UTC)
Kinderflood? You talk funny.

And I like things with teeth. Most of the time anyway.

Thank you for the cookies!

W-what do you mean suffering? I don't think I'm supposed to be here either. I can't think of what I've done wrong. I'm supposed to help other people from making mistakes.

Well, then clearly you're a warden!

Pick a deranged criminal and have at it, Mr. Insect!

private - warning. iBond thinks you're a classic Bond. Villain. So... this is not going to go well.
Ah, just the man I was looking for.

I don't suppose I can request the privilage of dinner with the Admiral?

I am a senior attache in the British Diplomatic Service, and would most like to meet the gentleman in charge of this particular operation.
amagicalmystery
Nov. 1st, 2010 12:59 am (UTC)
private - l-lol if my sucking at this doesn't ruin the idea entirely. but awesome.
Hmm. It isn't usual protocol, but you seem Warden-ly enough...

I don't recall making a deal with you, though.
christ_onabike
Nov. 1st, 2010 12:50 pm (UTC)
Re: private - :D
Then let's make one.
amagicalmystery
Nov. 3rd, 2010 02:16 am (UTC)
private.
Hm, very well. One inmate reformed, in exchange for pretty much anything. New set of suits, a girl who won't die or go missing... Sky's the limit.
christ_onabike
Nov. 3rd, 2010 02:21 am (UTC)
Re: private.
Not the sort of deal I was after.

How about you tell me where all the people who were here before were, or I come and make your life very difficult, up close and personal.
amagicalmystery
Nov. 4th, 2010 01:31 am (UTC)
Re: private.
Well, one of them's about eight years old right now, another one sprouted teeth, the rest... I didn't authorize this, ok?

You have to find me first.
