I experienced a real take-off for the first time today. Frankly it scared the bejesus out of me, which the captain was quick to pick up on. He kissed me after everyone else had left (since they felt awkward), and I've decided that I enjoyed it. It reminded me of when Pailen and Comgro used to practice on me - all three of them have that insistent, commanding feel to their kisses. I'd like to say it was romantic and full of meaning, but that would be stupid. I'm not blind. I may not be able to recognize innuendo, according to my late brother, but I can tell when somebody's getting hit on. I doubt Captain Leroy has real feelings for anybody except Mr. Morningstar, my superior. Today was otherwise uneventful. Noork and I are becoming fast friends, but Teivel and Seren seem difficult to approach.

Who: Anybody, but this is preferrably Andrej's chance to think about stuff while he gets familiar with the Penetrator

When: Day 2, 8:15 AM

Where: The Penetrator, mess hall

When Andrej came down for breakfast in the morning, he saw a note posted on the message board mounted on the wall. He read it slowly, not being much of a morning person.

"Wait, what??" He wasn't sure he'd read things correctly. Andrej went back to read over everything again. "Well this is interesting..." He muttered. "Me, in charge of something?" Andrej scribbled a note in response.

Dear everybody,
I don't know how I feel about being nominated for that, but I do like chores. Dishes and bathroom duties are some of my specialties, so I don't mind at all being assigned to clean things up.

Satisfied with his means of communication, he ate a quick breakfast then walked out to begin familiarizing himself with the ship.

So today was a bit odd. It went better than I expected, I'd been afraid of being turned away. In hindsight, maybe I shouldn't have seemed so eager to leave. This should be interesting no matter where we end up. The first one I met was this morning in front of the ship, where Mr. Morningstar was waiting for applicants like myself. He seemed to be a bit bored, although I suppose I would have been as well if I'd been standing there all day. I met Seren Marelac while trying to find my room, and he seems like a nice guy. I didn't meet the captain until we got called to the mess hall for dinner, and it was a bit of a surprise. He said some embarrassing things I'd rather not mention, then left again. He came back later with Noork, another new hire, who fell asleep at the table while we were eating. Captain Leroy took him back to his room, since Mr. Morningstar seemed a little drunk (and so did Seren). I sort of felt ignored, but I didn't say anything. If all goes well we should be leaving port soon, which is definitely going to be something new for most of us.

Name: Andrej Milholan (an-DREY mill-HAUL-an)

Age: Seventeen and a half

Seme, uke: He's not exactly sure (he's had dreams and fantasies of both)

Special talents, abilities: Andrej is very good at categorizing and organizing objects by almost any standard you can think of. He is also very good at cleaning and has no problem with chores like toilet-cleaning and washing dishes. Andrej is skilled in lock-picking from being locked in closets by his older brothers as pranks in his childhood.

Personality: Quite obsessive about tidyness and order, it is one of the few things he is passionate about. When he doesn't succeed in something, he may become disheartened and give up. He likes contact with other people as long as he feels he can be open with them. Andrej believes that family is very important, despite his own attempts to sever ties with his own family. He has a slight fear of women which most likely stems from his overbearing mother and other familial matriarchs.

Likes: Cleaning, travel, ethnic dancing, bar/pub atmospheres

Dislikes: Large messes, dishevled-looking people, having his own idiosyncracies pointed out to him, frogs, snakes

Strengths: Finding patterns in information and objects,

Weaknesses: Small animals (frogs and snakes in particular), coming up with plans, holding an attention span for long-winded speakers, women

Background: Originally from Norway, Andrej lived with his parents, two brothers and sister until the advent of space travel. His two older brothers left the family to become captains of starships (and failed). His second-oldest brother was killed in a mis-managed raid on a passenger ship by the police, which left Andrej bitter and untrusting of organized law enforcement. In a hasty attempt to extend the family and make a little extra money, his father arranged for him to marry the daughter of a Polish politician. Never attracted to girls, Andrej was forced to reveal it at the last minute during the actual wedding. He fled the scene and is on the run, hoping to avoind the wrath of his overbearing mother.

Appearance: Sandy blonde hair the color of soft goldenrod that is usually kept in a short cut reaching the nape of his neck. His brown eyes are most often three-fourths of the way open. He has the odd habit of blinking frequently, which unnerves some people during conversation. Andrej is of average height, about five feet and seven inches, which in an all-male envoronment may seem quite short.

Reason for joining the crew of The Penetrator: To avoid any contact with the Polish government and his parents, Andrej first thought about working aboard a ship simply due to the fact that they're always moving and never stay in one place for very long. Not only that, but the all-male environment was appealing to him due to his fear of women.

Extra Comments: If he makes friends, he may request for people to call him Andy instead of Andrej. It's his unofficial nickname.

Who: All characters, as long as you can get into Andrej's room!

When: Day 1, approximately 5:00 PM

Where: the Penetrator, crew's quarters, Andrej's cabin

Andrej opened the door to his cabin with his key card and peered inside. It seemed fairly clean, and rather plain. At one end of the room there was a small window in the wall, and he examined the bed sheets with careful scrutiny before deeming them safe to lie on. He flopped down onto his bed with a sigh. How long had it been since he'd been in a real bed? It was then that he realized how tired he was. "I'll just rest a minute..." Andrej told himself with a yawn, closing his eyes. Before he knew it, he'd fallen asleep.
