Destruction of the DemeterMajor Polsic discovered that much of the Electra's work, was to escort other ships, and generally protect them. Most passenger liners and cargo transports were relatively generous with their compensation. Nobody felt slighted when the captain agreed to an errand of mercy, which was an errand for which the Electra was not compensated. The times of strife they endured, provided several opportunities for those, and many were seized. Sometimes a bit of scheduling would allow the Electra to guide ships which were part of a mercy errand, along with paying ships. Other times, such as this, the mercy errand was the only errand.Destruction of the Demeter1 week ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
There were few clouds on the trip, and the weather was warm. Some of the crew took turns basking in the sun on the deck of the old battleship as it led the cargo transport Demeter through safe passage. Even the refugees on the Demeter seemed to relax somewhat. The Electra and her captain had a long reputation; no ship under her

flips a switch, allowing it to pass through the intercom.
"We should have you at the docks in only a few momments."
The old women says as Abbey turns to see Bailey pressing herself against
the window. He rolls his eyes, understanding how much of a 'gear head' she is.
Abbey groans at Bailey,
"You know you shouldn't do that, what if the glass breaks?"
She lifts herself off, then tackles into the glass. Bailey falls over after bouncing off
of it. She turns her head towards Abbey, giving him a bit of a glare.
"This is made of poly-carbonate non-crystalized glass. Most forms of weaponry
cannot peirce through it, but that thing..." Baily stands up to see the black ship again.
"I bet it uses some form of Carbon-nanotube Fibers, to produce a transperent substance." Abbey swivels his chair to
look at the dashboard.
A few green, blinking lights greet him. Abbey grabs the microphone pulling it to his side.
He clicks a few switches. When he begi

It wasn’t supposed to end like this…
By the time his mind had resurfaced into some semblance of consciousness, his body had gone all but numb. He struggled to draw breath into his rebellious lungs, wheezing feebly through the smoke. A thick, coppery taste filled his mouth as the stifling heat slowly baked the excess ichor into the fur on his muzzle. He forced one eye open as best he could as he tried to see past the crack in the glass of his goggles, dividing the licks of orange and yellow that danced in the reflection. Fire and chaos were all that surrounded him, the roaring a deafening cacophony intertwined with the occasional distant explosion or thud of debris falling around him. Unable to move his head to confirm, he vaguely felt the all too familiar wood of the wheel jammed underneath his slumped right arm, pressing into his neck and chest.
Captain James Bennett was crushed at the helm of his ship, pinned between the enormous, dislodged wheel and the b

The ship was enormous. Lena could see that, easily. She wondered how long it would take to walk from one end of the ship to the other. But right now, it was resting in a docking area in the earth, while people hurried around to do potential repairs.
It was the Kalos region ship, Santalune City. The only city in Kalos with a school; as such, this was where Lena was going to be living for the time being.
“Lena, what're you doing?” her mother called. Lena snapped out of her trance with the ship and found her mother nearby, talking with some man she'd never seen before. Lena grabbed her backpack, shouldered it, and hurried after her mother.
“What?” Lena asked.
“We're getting on the ship,” her mother said.
“Don't want to.”
“I'm sorry, was there something on my face that said that I care what you want?”
“Well, you should. As your only daughter--”

Professor Cuthbert Q. Berkley's Fantastic Contraption
Act One, Chapter One
The countryside of New South Wales, Australia, is a beautiful place. The Blue Mountains, a historic area with heritage both man-made and environmental abound, is quiet and perfect for a getaway- or, in the case of Faith White and her mother, Catherine, a place for a new beginning. Not that Faith was ever happy about moving. A Melbournite by birth, leaving the Victorian capital was both annoying and an inconvenience. She was set to start high school soon and had hoped to stay in one place, but her Catherine, a painter and genealogist, had been employed at a library in Katoomba, and that meant that they had had to move.
“Do we really have to move?” Faith asked during the drive.
Catherine smirked. “Unless you’d rather go to a boarding school, no.”
“But the countryside is boring!” Faith complained for the umpteenth time that week. “It’s al
