Operation
Repo Men
As we set out to rescue USB PaleHorse in this seventeenth year of
SCUL (the path to our objective having been metaphorically smoothed by
Nosepicker and Threespeed prior to mission), we were joined by two
babymaggots, Spark and Dreadflint, and one new ship, Moneypenny, a
fantastical HARV that SevenofNine identified as an "ordinary", the
original name for high-wheel bicycles before "safety" bikes took
over, and then we came along to take the safety out again.
Accomplished builder Deathtrap indicated upon christening it that it
is a gift to SCUL, and a worthy one indeed, experiencing no
mechanicals over the course of the mission.


We proceeded directly to
Veal's fort, with a stop for one mechanical along the way, and in the
course of emancipating the ship, discovered two miniature
discodeathstahs which Skunk took into protective custody. While
various pilots and maggots goofed around on the jungle gym, bringing
Mjollnir to its apex, Threespeed, SevenofNine, and others worked to
dissassemble the object of our efforts and bind it to Catastrophe
like some sort of demented figurehead. There were attempts to attach
the miniature dds to the "prow", which were unsuccessful.


Our
navigator Q, citing the presence of prefrosh, next led us to MIT,
where we busted the funk, distributed stickers, and Retard took out
her illuminated poi. SadieBlake quietly celebrated his 55th birthday
as 110410 rolled into view. We also picked up a floaty, future
babymaggot
一輪車 (Ichirinsha), a skillful unicyclist.


After following a circuitous route through MIT, picking up temporary
floaters both riding civie ships and running, and stopping at the
steam dispenser nearby, Q successfully led us on a well-planned
complex twisting and turning route through cool buildings, connected
lots, and some funky industrial areas with notably scarified
pavement, alongside railroad tracks, and down dark & narrow
industrial alleyways. We coasted back into Fort airspace at a
relatively early hour, pleased with our success, and the warm
reception we received in most of our travels.
