43-Valkyrie’s View: A Year Among the Stars

February 12th, 2552 A moment
Shuttle pilot/Lab Rat/mechanic in training – Katherine ‘Kat’ James Reporting

I nearly hit someone today, which usually a good sign that I need to back off and regroup, only I’m on a ship that’s more like a small town. Sure there are people I haven’t met and haven’t ticked off for being there— but I didn’t have it in me to deal with ‘I’m watching you’ guy and his friends.

Cookie and Mac understood, and oddly Tower and the Einherjar understood. Truth be told I think Mac was expecting it. He and Cookie kept me busy with clean up, and the wreckage was taken to the Twilight.

It’s interesting – they took the ship there for forensics not because they were afraid of damage, but because they wanted to keep it so that the pilot’s crew would be spared having to see the ship. Only problem is, when you have really good ship-to-ship communications… you see things all too clearly.

I learned an object lesson in coping methods – Cookie inventories, Mac builds… the Einherjar spar… and I need to find something other than being prickly. I’ll last longer
