Subject: Pedo Edhel?


Wondering if any of you fine folks know of a site with a really good Elven Translator/Dictionary. Been looking around myself and have found a few but most seem to have only a very limited number of words translated.

Any help would be great!

Thanks!

Stardate: 2368.04.10
Cmdr. Kennedy – Deck 12 – 1820

"Oh! Commander!"
A female voice caught Callie’s attention and she spun her head to find herself looking at the slender delicate frame of Ruea.

The girl looked her over with surprise at first and then regained control of herself before speaking again, "Um, I didn't know you swim..."

Callie herself blinked for a moment. The woman was familiar looking but at the moment she could not come up with her name or even department at the moment. To be polite though, she shook her head with a sigh.

“I wasn’t swimming. Not that I can’t swim… I just…” She sighs again. “One of Lt. Constantine’s relaxation holoprograms…” She finally offers as an explanation and shrugs.

“Looks as if you are headed for one yourself…” She notes the staff that Ruea carries. “I won’t keep you…”

((OOC: Will edit as needed for conversation))

Giving Ruea a small nod she headed off to the turbolift and finally to her quarters.

Wrapped in the dim lights and seclusion of her own space she pulled out one of her guitars. Not the beautiful cherry red antique that was prominently displayed under a light and shield in the main room, but instead a transparent purple instrument. Checking to make sure the heavy strings were tuned she then began to play. Tonight the usual heavy chords that were often heard drifting from her quarters were replaced with something much softer though. Next to her a bourbon on ice melted and between verses she took sips of the strong liquid and let it warm her as she played.

Just over the music she made with her fingers she sang an old tune that seemed to be calling to her tonight.

Somewhere, someday
We'll be close together, wait and see
Oh by the way,
This time the dream's on me

You take my hand
and you look at me adoringly
But as things stand
This time the dream's on me

It would be fun
To be certain that I'm the one
To know that I, at least, supply the shoulder you cry upon

To see you through
Till you're everything you want to be
It can't be true, but…

This time the dream's on me


Eventually the purple guitar discontinues its melody and soon after the words of the song trail off as well. The lights go down and Callie curls up on the chair hugging the guitar close to her chest as she drifts off to sleep. The bourbon gone.

Still got some work to do on dear old Callie I'm afraid.

Left her stalking down the hall though if anyone would like to bump into her, if not she'll head back to her quarters (got something worked up for that if no one runs into her before then).

Stardate: 2368.04.10
Cmdr. Kennedy – Holodeck 1800


The steam of the hot spring she rested in rose up and swirled around her arms and face, droplets of moisture clinging to her pale skin and slicking down her dark hair. She took a deep breath of it, and smelled the coolness of the cucumbers on her eyes, smelled the cleanness of the water and the crispness to the mountain air. In the distance a bird made a slow sweet song.

She had slightly changed the program Constantine had told her to run when she saw it. Shifting the setting to something more familiar to her, the cool crisp mountains of her homeland, but the rest she had kept as Constantine had programmed it. For nearly half an hour now she had been pampered by a handful of holo-servants and finally allowed to soak in this tub.

"And do you think, that you resonate so closely with this ship because it is, like you, a vesel of life, capable of creation and more directly, of change?"

Out of the steam came the voice of the ship’s counselor. Callie tried to shove it back into the steam, tried to loosen the muscles in her face that had tensed. Instead her face tightened even further and her hot frustrated breath mingled with the steam and only seemed to draw in memories and thoughts she didn’t want to face.

When a strong but soft hand touched her shoulder she jumped. Cucumbers fell from her eyes and floated in the water as she turned quickly, her hand already forming a fist. The handsome younger man in the white robes looked startled at her reaction for a minute but then offered a smile of perfect white teeth.

“Time for your massage sir…”

The fist splashed down into the water, spraying little droplets across her own body and onto the bottom of the masseuses robe. Tears threatened to spill over and she turned her head to where she knew the exit was.

“Sheila! Get me out of here!” She commanded.

Everything flickered for a moment and suddenly she was in a white locker room. A towel hung next to her clothing on a nearby bench. Cursing lightly to herself she toweled off and then squirmed into her jeans and black t-shirt. A few minutes later she was stalking down the hallway toward the turbolift, hair still dripping down the back of her shirt.

Oh... and for Star Trek... actually I did have a random question concerning promotions.

Callie would not want to run a starship really, she's focused on Engineering... she can keep going up through the ranks without taking on the bridge correct?

A holodeck program... so that is the answer huh?

She looked at Venn a bit skeptically.

It's either that or make some mistake in the Ten Forward with that ****ed cowboy... or... she wouldn't even let herself finish that statment.

"Fine... I'll try it. Sitting here at dock there isn't much else for me to do anyway. Thanks. I hope I wasn't interrupting your night or anything..." She sighs and finishes wiping at her cheeks before setting the the kercheif down.

"Do you feel he's lucky because he does not share the same emotional connection to the ship that you do?"

She shook her head at that and frowned deeply.

"And do you think," she asked, following the thread she'd intended, "that you resonate so closely with this ship because it is, like you, a vessel of life, capable of creation and more directly, of change?"

Her face tightened at that, and she wondered just what the counselor had read off her file and if she was teasing her or not. But she grabbed one of the offered handkerchiefs though and dabbed at her eyes while she listened to Constantine talk.

"When one suffers a tragedy," the counselor began, "it is completely natural to form an attachment to someone or even something that makes us feel safe, be it from either physical or emotional harm. But it's entirely possible to let go of the pain without letting go of one’s self, and how that pain has shaped you."

And this is why I hate doing things like this… she thought gloomily to herself but tried to work with Constantine.

“This has nothing to do with the fact that I lost the Gallant. There is no life creating and no change! Garrish has a family to go home to, he loves this ship just as I do, but he has more to his life than that. He has something in his life that can love him back! That appreciates him… he has more than ambition to drive him.” The tears flow now and she wipes at her cheeks with the kerchief.

“The Discovery and I run on pure raw energy, I need her… she needs me… but sometimes… sometimes I need more. I need…” but she stopped herself short there and shook her head.

Those green eyes looking at her were too much and she turned her head back toward the window, staring out at the stars.

USS Discovery, Counselling – 1720


“I’ve just had difficulties focusing. But that’s typical during shore leave. I like being out there…” she waved toward the window looking out over the dark vastness of space. “I can think better out there. It’s easier to concentrate.”

"Completely natural, Callie. It’s entirely healthy response in certain types of individuals. What are some of the things you've been doing to refocus?"

Callie shrugged, growing a bit tense at Constantine calling her ‘Callie’ at least it wasn’t ‘California’ but... she wasn’t that comfortable with the woman, then again she knew that Constantine was doing it to make her more comfortable, so she let it pass. “Work. My pet project with the antimatter… music… Music usually works. But not today.”

"And how are you sleeping? Are you getting enough rest?"

Again she shrugged. “Fine I guess. Maybe a bit too much honestly. Although I often don’t feel rested even after 10 hours of sleep. I just want to be back out there. I know you don’t feel it, but I do. When this ship is out there… I can feel it… here it is just sitting. Just sitting. With no purpose. Once it gets out there though…” she sighs and shakes her head trying to put words to feelings she feels but can’t fully understand herself. “But out there, she’s alive. Everywhere I go I can feel her around me, pulsing with power and almost throbbing with anticipation. It’s a high.” She almost laughs and shakes her head as she looks over at Constantine’s green eyes.

"I'm not here to judge," venn added softly. "I'm just here to help you find a way through it."

“I don’t want to –get through it- though. I just want to be able to stay focused. I hate being docked. This ship…” and she runs her hand down the couch as if for emphasis, “is nearly everything I have left. When she’s docked it’s like… it’s like… I… Garrish is so lucky!” She spits this last bit out, seemingly at random, but with great emotion. Cheeks flushed now, her eyes glistening with threatened tears.

“God… It’s ridiculous! Truly it is. I’ve accomplished so much with my life thus far, and there is no reason to believe I’ve plateaued. And I don’t wish to…”

With a sigh she turned her head back toward the window, a tear falling coolly down her cheek. “I just want to get on with the launch.” She finished quietly.

Well of course! We still you Keeper!

Game tiffs do not, and should not, carry over.

Will be interesting to see where this goes.

As for leadership, Halia has no desire to take it up herself (for obvious reasons I doubt the party would grant it to her even if she did), and has no real issue with Cor keeping it.

Cmdr. Kennedy – Deck 12: Counselor’s Office – 1720


“I’ve just had difficulties focusing. But that’s typical during shore leave. I like being out there…” she waved toward the window looking out over the dark vastness of space. “I can think better out there. It’s easier to concentrate.”

Callie had come by the counselor’s office when she found herself staring at readout of antimatter performance in low gravitational fields. It was a project she was working on during her free time. Today though she couldn’t even focus on her hobby. For half an hour she had tried, cranking up the music until she felt the hairs on her arm rise with the base that pounded the engineering lab she was in. Finally she gave up and sent a message to Lt. Constantine asking if she could come talk to her.

Now here she was sitting in the plush green couch again, rambling on about shore leave and her inability to stay focused. Really it was ridiculous, but that was Constantine’s job: listening to her complaints.

The day had gone well all things considered, the torpedo exchange had gone on with nearly no hitches. It was now in the competent hands of her aCTO, Garrish. She trusted Garrish and had no doubt that they would get done with the project before the deadline she had set, the end of tomorrow’s Alpha Shift. Throughout the day she had hoped that her disinterest was due to the fact that it was simply routine that she was supervising. There was nothing to get passionate about, they were teleporting war heads and putting those beautiful new weapons into their homes. She had hoped that the antimatter would get her attention that a few hours working on her pet project would get the blood pumping and her brain cells snapping again; it didn’t. Her choices at that point were a trip to the Ten Forward or Constantine’s office.

Thinking of who might be already in the Ten Forward, and the lecture she would get from Garrish if he found out she had spent another night in the lounge, she went for the counselor.

Halia listened as Althena finally spoke up. Her own face was solemn as the woman critiqued both of the men for their actions. When she finally suggested that they 'kiss and make up' the tiniest hint of a smile perched on her corner of her lips.

For a moment it seemed that the words of Althena would do the trick, but that moment was shattered when Cor spoke up.

In amazement Halia watched as he walked off from the group, sectioning himself away from them and relinquishing his position as leader.

She nearly winced at this action as it nearly brought physical pain upon her. But she wasn't sure what to do or say about any of it. Her own position in the group was so very precarious after her own fall to the sword. Of course now she feared that Cor would be next. Solidarity and trust was the greatest armor against such a weapon.

But everyone had tried to get the group together and it had failed. She refused to become a victim to the sword again herself.

In the end she walked over to Ulthok, put a hand on his shoulder and looked around before speaking.

"Perhaps we should all just get some rest, sleeping as close together as we can... perhaps things will look better in the morning."
