Thirty-Two Bells: [Voice/Action]


[A man clearing his throat.]

This is Mr. Kennedy. Ginia...Miss Ginia Solana has gone home, as you know, and left me the club. Now she’s gone, musicians on our schedule are a bit scarce. I could also use a waiter or two. Or three, I wouldn’t mind, especially if they could help at the bar on busy nights, or nights when I am gone. [A pause, then his tone goes falsely cheerful as if he’s impatient with his own awkward long-windedness.] In short, for which I am clearly untalented, if any of you possess a musical skill, I should be very glad to have you perform here. There’s nothing quite like music to lift a spirit, and Cloud Nine is the one place in the village which has it regularly. We should all be grateful to hear yours.

And I know waiting on tables is scarcely anyone’s ideal way to spend his or her evening, but it could be worse. Exchanging idleness for music usually turns out in one’s favor. I’ll be happy for the help. I did begin as a waiter myself.

Now I’d like to address the sailors and would-be sailors of the village. The Britannia has lost a few of her crew—sent home—and I know there are sailors here who’ve not spoken up. I’d like to know why, that I might dispel any concerns. We’re not asking for exclusivity, if that’s the trouble, and it’s been made clear time and time again that we are not a military vessel. If there are any doubts, it is better to ask. Even if you’re not a sailor, you’re welcome aboard. Thank you for your time. We set sail in May.

[Filtered 86% to Nami]

I’d like to ask you especially, Miss Nami. Your skills and experience are second to none here, and we would be honored to have you.

[He’ll spend the daylight hours wandering the woods and all over town, keeping an eye out for a certain young midshipman the rogue Malnosso took. At one point, he’ll head to the smithy to see Hiccup and Sokka. In the evening, he’ll be working the bar and kitchen at Cloud Nine, and bringing food to tables when he must.]

[They've been taking turns doing rounds 'bout the woods and town, watching for their midshipman and housemate, but it's a quiet moment in the afternoon when both are home, and Horatio has seen the announcements.]

Been a bad run of leavings lately, hasn't it?

[But then, that seems to be the way of the place. People rarely arrive in a scattered nature, and they rarely leave just one at a time. Not all at once, not like New Feathers, but it seems the vanishings come in twos or threes at least, most times.]

A run of bad luck, Archie. Nothing more.

[And... well.]

If things stay consistent, we're due for another landing of newcomers. Might find some for the club and for our crew in among 'em. [It certainly won't hurt.

...Perhaps he'll make an announcement, after the lot's had time to settle in. He might not be able to speak well for the club, but he might be able to appeal to sailors as a captain. Maybe.]

Can't let them know we're-- what would you call it? Trying to take over the village? [A grin.]

I think that sounds about right, don't you?

There are musicians here? [Maybe it's not so surprising; with all the different types of people here, why not people that like music too?]

[It's another couple of days after Archie makes the request that Nami finally sees it, back from a mission and curled up in bed for some indulgent rest and sifting back through the journal to see if she missed anything. The request definitely appeals to her ego, but...

...if Bellemere were still here, she'd have said yes in a flash. But she's not, and Nami has a crew, and no desire to sail with a different one.

That being said...]


Tell me how much time is involved.
mikangirl: (eh.  we'll manage.)

It's all good, bb.

[personal profile] mikangirl 2012-06-11 10:35 pm (UTC)(link)
I've already charted these waters. I can give you a copy if you like.

[Though that's not a 'no'. With everything going on, if it's just a voyage it might make for a good distraction.

...and that probably sounded blunter than she intended, so she smiles faintly.]


Let me check with my captain.
