A Strange Sort of Irony

It was a rather common topic in philosophical writings: staring at the stars and wondering what was beyond the individual’s understanding and comprehension in that strange and unknown place. T’Lira wasn’t entirely certain this was what they had thought of in their musings. As she launched, she check...

Old Tricks

In. Out. In. Out. Find target. Lock on. Fire. Target down. Repeat. Fighter after fighter went down, their holoimages flickering out as the holographic projectiles hit them in key locations. She was so focused on the ships in front of her that she didn’t notice the small group behind her until it was...

Friendly Advice

Perhaps changing the algorithm to grant a more narrow focus on the target would be far more useful. Yes, that would definitely work for the phaser arrays, T’Lira mused. She had been working on this in her off-hours for some time, consulting with Elena occasionally, as her friend had many more years ...

Latent Wounds

by T’Lira and Kathryn Harper T’Lira held the PADD in her hand, absolutely not almost breaking it, as she reached an office door she’d stood before many times before. After a moment’s hesitation, she reached forward and pressed the chime. Seated behind the ready room desk, Captain Harper looked up fr...

A Fork in the Road

Never in her life had she felt so... useless. It was, perhaps, an illogical notion to believe of oneself, but it held more truth than T’Lira was willing to admit. Far too often as of late she had found her mind wandering, distracted by thoughts of what she should have done and could have done to pre...

Curiousity Didn’t Actually Kill the Cat, Did It?

Something was... off. The PADDs strewn across the coffee table included various languages, at least one culture, and a couple of fun books. One by one, they’d all been tossed aside as their owner grew bored. Now, Taril peered at another PADD, this one containing his history assignments from class. H...

Moving Day

"How many boxes of books can one kid have?" Elena laughed as Eddie grunted while lifting one of several boxes of books. T'Lira glanced over at the pair and drily stated, "Perhaps you should invest in PADDs in the future. They are far lighter than the paper books you insist on gifting Taril. I do not...

Re: Atlantis OOC - General Chatter

I am so sorry about missing the last couple sims! Shit at my house has been... well, long story short, my uncle is an ass and my aunt has been using my room since mid-June. I've been sleeping on the couch since I got back from Cali and that screws with my internal clock, because sim time is usually ...

Through Fire We Walked to Emerge Unscathed

In the audience at the hearings, a small group had gathered towards the back, watching and hoping this didn’t go sideways. “Ten says Smith makes a fool of himself.” “I’m not betting against you, I know better.” “Shush, both of you. Some of us are actually interested in this.” Elena Garson and Edward...

Re: Atlantis OOC - General Chatter

Hey all! I'm going to be about half an hour to forty-five minutes late tonight, there was some late ordering of pizza and we all know how long that takes to arrive. Hopefully it gets here soon and I hit the half hour late mark instead of the forty-five minute mark!
