captain's rest

  • Hook: It would help if we knew who we were looking for.
  • Belle: His name is Gideon. He's my son.
  • Hook: Your son is an infant.
  • Belle: He was, but he was kidnapped by his grandma who's evil and also the Black Fairy. She tortured him in a realm where time moves differently and now he's all grown up and he wants to kill Emma to steal her Savior powers.
  • Charming: Wow.
  • Belle: I know it sounds crazy but--
  • Charming: No, not that. Hook, who had that in the pool?
  • Hook: That would be Grumpy. 'Kidnapped by, until now, unmentioned magical relative and molded for evil purposes.' Really nailed it. He is going to clean up.
  • Belle: I'm sorry, you bet on how my son would turn evil?
  • Charming: No, we bet on what magical shenanigans would go down once you gave birth. It happens every time there's a new baby here. I had "Gideon immediately falls into a portal for the sake of irony."
  • Belle: Unbelievable.
  • Hook: And yet, here we are.

According to one of the books the reason chekov became chief of security in the movies is because he was rejected from command school for being too immature but he still wanted to be in charge of people so he went to security school instead

Captain my captain!

We were playing a pirate themed game and our resident smart-ass decided to have some fun while our DM was introducing a character, O'Malley.

DM: a female pirate with a small monkey on her shoulder walks up to your group, she is obviously a captain or at least a wealthy pirate.

O'Malley: I be looking for a few crew hands to replace the ones i lost, any of ye be interested?

Pyromancer (me): who are we working for?

O'Malley: that’d be me, Captain O'Malley of the Western Storm.

Monk (smartass): Mrs O'Malley-

O'Malley: Captain O'Malley!

Monk: MRS Captain O'Malley. What is the pay like?

We proceeded to call her Mrs Captain O'Malley the rest of the game

OK, I keep seeing that post about Eiffel and Minkowski living together and as much as I love it, consider: Lovelace and Minkowski living together after Wolf 359 ends.

- Lovelace used to love looking at the stars, but now the sky and the world outside are overwhelmingly endless, and she can’t deal with it. She doesn’t want to leave the house, but she doesn’t want to be in the house, either. “Everything feels too heavy and too small and too big, all at the same time,” she tells Minkowski, and Minkowski’s idea is that Lovelace come outside into a tent with her. They buy bright outdoor lights to drown out most of the night sky, and for the first time in who knows how long Lovelace feels like the air is clean.

- One of them is always waking up in the night with the feeling of being in free-fall, but it’s not a dream, it’s a memory, and Hera’s not there and the station isn’t falling apart and the only thing they can do is sit on the couch for a while and watch dumb late-night TV together. 

- Minkowski puts on her show tunes and sings along to them in the house while cleaning (and she does clean, it’s a way to feel in control again), and Lovelace watches her and thinks about how she should have been onstage all along; the nightmares should never have been hers. 

- She encourages Minkowski to join the local theater troupe, at least do acting as a hobby, and Minkowski does. At an audition one day she channels her “serious commander” voice for the first time in ages and it lands her the part of Javert in Les Miserables, which is a bit strange for her but she can live with it. 

- Lovelace reminds Minkowski every day that she’s not human. Minkowski reminds Lovelace every day that humanity is overrated.

- Minkowski breaks her hand once, after she doesn’t sleep for three days in a row and someone on the radio says “Dear listeners” and it sounded like Eiffel but it wasn’t. She punches right through the cheap plaster of the wall, and Lovelace drives her to the hospital afterwards, ignoring how Minkowski is crying because she’d never, ever want it noticed. Minkowski patches up the hole herself as soon as the cast comes off, because she wants to mend what she broke. 

- Lovelace spends hours listening to radio static and hours more staring at her reflection in the mirror, trying to figure out who she is. Eventually Minkowski takes away the mirrors, but she leaves the radio.

- “Commander-” “Not anymore.”

- “What if none of it was real, and this is some kind of crazy, weird fever dream we’re trapped in?” “I don’t think I could dream you up.”

- Minkowski kisses Lovelace after she says that, presses up against her, trying to get as close as she possibly can. Her mouth almost burns, and Lovelace is surprised when she pulls away and feels tears on her cheeks.

- Minkowski learns that her husband remarried after she was declared dead. A high-school sweetheart of his. She can’t figure out why, if she loves Lovelace (and she does, she knows she does), she feels her heart is breaking. It lasts for a few days, and then she sells her wedding ring and engagement ring at a pawnshop and doesn’t look back.
