It was hot . Well, no, it wasn't, really. This was a relatively mild midsummer. It had been hotter last week. But for Inugog, it may as well have been the surface of the sun. Even a relatively plum position at the Imperial Tent (called such because no Emperor had ever gone even remotely near it; the...

Festival Entranceway, Promenade

It was not, Rilis thought as they walked down the street in their civilian clothing, as though they had a strictly friendly relationship.Whoever else she may have been, her mind and memories had been so scrambled that she may as well always have been this girl. And the girl she was liked Jun-Fan. He...

Lee Jun-Fan (who usually went by his courtesy name of Cheng, to make it easier for his local superiors and new neighbors) looked at his new partner skeptically. It wasn't that she was young. Cheng wasn't that much older than she was, and he had also come through the academy in record time. Faster th...

"Miss Struan," Maein spoke softly and without inflection, after the appropriate courtesies were exchanged, "I have done as you requested." She slipped her purse up and over her body, momentarily (much to the appreciation of the thugs, it seemed) letting her shirt fall even deeper...

Maein nodded, sighed, and took a breath. Slowly, and to some whistles from the crowd (who had evidently been expecting the show from the moment she walked in) and a catty comment or two from the dancer, she began to unwillingly take off her jacket, not turning to face her sudden audience. Her cheeks...

"Thank you, Paul McClintock." She didn't meet his eye, but she did bow. "I must go and put my face on for my meeting, and change to my local attire. I hope you do not mind waiting, and I wish you luck, Satoshi Vega, and you a pleasant shore leave, Priscilla." And so it was that s...

It was one thing to attend the carnival as a kid. Chaokun had done that. The bright lights, the dancing, the food, the cheering as staid Imperial City let down its (tightly bunned/braided) hair and enjoyed the good weather, the long day, and the near certainty of the sea breeze... she remembered bei...

It was amazing, how quickly things changed, and how little they had changed when they were finished. First, Chaokun had lost all interest in turning back, finally announcing to her parents that she would remain a woman for her life. Second, while there was no denying that her initial transformation ...

Maein would, at last, come out of her chambers. She had, once more, dressed herself fully. More fully, indeed, than before. And it was... strange. Oh, not that she was covered from neck to toe. Traditional Rudanese women's clothing often covered that much, and could cover more; to wear it in a way t...

Whatever Maein had been doing (mentally calculating prices and resupply costs) it vanished from her attention. Not even from McClintock's questions. She had been smelling the chocolate, and it had been slowly driving her mad, even as Paul wandered the ship looking for her. And then he walked inside,...

"My father was on the Dok-Shifa , with older brother and big sister." Shizixin said, after they had sat on a bench to eat their egg waffles. He spoke quietly now, so quiet, she needed to lean in to hear him. "Mother and I were meant to be joining them on Dai-Yann... we arrived at the ...

Imperial Palace Market, Riverside Walk and Food Stalls

Not that they got too far. Once they were out of their mothers' sight and on the promenade, looking out over the river valley and at the massive walls of the imperial palace, he stopped and looked at her, his hand still holding hers. "I'm Sun Shizixin. I'm in my ninth year at the Academy. I'm s...

It felt.. good , Chaokun decided. It all felt good. It felt good to be standing here, next to her mother, as she had been taught by television to stand, arms in front of her, protecting herself but also putting herself on show. It felt good , that he kept staring at her, that his gaze kept wandering...

"Not at all, honorable Sohei." She bowed slightly, her palms coming together. Somewhere between there and here, she had once more covered her eyes "My apologies if I surprised you. I was concerned you may have questions, but I am glad to see that you have managed." Maein spoke so...

The following information is a general blend of openly available information and stuff you would find out about her from communication en route. They would, of necessity, be tightly constrained, but this is the information you all start with. Name: Asen Meili (but you can just call her Meili!) Age:...

Somewhere between her chambers, which were hermetically sealed behind them, and the turning-off point, Maein had fallen behind Vega for a moment. She was engaged in that timeless pursuit of putting on her face. By the time they reached the point, Maein's lips glistened with a shining lipstick that m...

OOC Application Thread: Legend of Meili

Asen Meili, youngest daughter of the Great Sovereign of the Empire, is looking for a husband. And she has some romantic ideas about how one will be found. Which is something she can have, since her father is willing to oblige his favorite child anything . Or so he says. She's not looking for Prince ...

The door slid open after the knock. Maein's quarters had a style and charm the rest of the ship lacked. Here alone had some of the opulence of the Dok Shifa's former life been maintained. The floor was richly carpeted and the wall still had its original paint. The furniture was nicer and the room la...

Imperial Palace Market, Eastern Extension

The arms that caught Chaokun were strong, if gentle, and she was grateful for that. Unashamed to hide her face, she buried herself in the boy's chest as the world shook around them, letting him do the hard work of supporting her for as long as he was willing. Around her, she could hear the screams a...

Imperial Palace Market

"Honestly, daughter, can you not keep your hands off yourself for five minutes?" Zin Aili once again slapped her child hands away from her breast. She had taken the day off of work to help her child find new clothes, and it did not seem too much to ask for the girl to behave herself. "...

Maein did stop by the cockpit. "Excellent work, Priscilla May." She bowed, briefly. "I can see you did not misspeak. When you have received word that the hold is closed once more, you may begin our departure. It should not be more than 45 minutes." She tilted her head to the side...

The ship's bay had more than enough space for the dock workers to load Vega's cargo. A section had been cleared out (maybe by these same men) less than a day ago, for transit across this region. Other cargo was labeled for distant worlds. Onboard the ship, Maein was listening to something only she c...

"Hm." Maein reached up and touched one of the pointed tips of her ears. "...very well." The Reixan considered all her options, spread out before her like cards on the table. After a moment, she hook her head. "Vega, then? If your name is known on this station, then I accept ...
