(please excuse my lack of knowledge of ship parts' names, hehe)

As Doc was walking back to the main deck, a very quick shadow approached, a very angry shadow. He barely had time to turn before being pushed against the sides.
It was Scarlet, dishevelled and with wild hair.

"What did you do to me, heh?
What did Zael put in my drink?
I was in the tavern catching up with my reading and drinking the local brew, and now I'm in a ship? After what looks like 9 hours?"

Doc was really confused: "Hey, what are you saying? You came with us willingly, nobody forced you! You walked in your own legs, entered the ship, even commented on the hotness of the captain..."

Scarlet looked around quickly, and catching sight of the captain, chuckled.
"Hmmm it seems I still speak truthfully even when under a spell... ok, I am where I'm supposed to be, but this worries me."
Yes, it did worry her - someone could make her do things, and she wondered what else was coming... Was Zael the culprit? It couldn't be, she could feel it every time he used his magic, which seemed to be for everything except eating. Was there anyone in the group hiding their true intentions? 

"Doc, this may be getting dangerous for you - are you sure there were no strange people at the inn this morning? Have you told anyone your plans? You certainly haven't told me, and I *said* I could help you". She stamped her foot, annoyed, and stared at the open sea.

Sorry, I won't be able to be here at 10 either, I'm falling asleep as the keyboard as it is (hardly slept last night :'().
I might do a last post over there, let me go read if I've got anything to add.

Edit: back, nope, things seem to be moving along fine and my last post still stands. I guess it's morning and we're ready to go :)

(by the way, tomorrow it'll be only later that I'm around - saturday, real life and all that :D)

Name: Scarlet

Alias/Nickname: Ms. Scarlet ;D

Looks: Short and curvy, always dressed in lots of layers. Big skirts, tunics and capes (which actually hide something....). No bags, just her books as almost part of her.

Race: Human

Profession: Magician, general know-it-all

Weapon of Choice/ Accessories: Books (for both!) and her smile (see 'Quirks')

Allegiance: Guiding the Hero

Secret Agency: it's a secret

Arch-Nemesis: No one (so far...)

Quirks: When she smiles and stares, people forget that they're supposed to be wary of her

(wow Arry, you had lots! did you do anything else last month? ;D)

My books:

Trinity Rising - Elspeth Cooper
Not as good as volume 1 in the trilogy, since it introduced a new character that I didn't care about. But it was fine, an average read.

I don't know if I should include it here, but I started
Shadow - K.J. Parker
which I had to abandon after about 80 pages because I just wasn't getting into it. I found it quite similar to Gaiman's 'American Gods', which I also abandoned...

The Raven's shadow - Elspeth Cooper
Happy to be reading the last book of the trilogy, it focused more on my favourite characters, and I was reading it quite avidly, wanting to know the end. Until the last few pages, when I realised it was not a trilogy, but apparently there's more. Which made me angry...
(but see more detailed comments about the story on the 'Read Along' section)

Black Opera - Mary Gentle
I loved this one! Quite different, alternate history fantasy, great characters, great plot, and I'll definitely be looking out for more of her books!

And then one that will be finished in August only, so it'll go into next month's list.

--> Side note: funnily enough, writing this list I realised there are only women authors (with Parker's disclaimer as unknown but with the majority leaning towards the female gender). Definitely not planned, which just goes to show the law of averages :D

Ooooh ok then.
Sorry, it's just my logical brain taking over - I promise I'll try to be more 'go with the flow' :)

I wish that all posts were 'more or less' short...
It's very hard to catch up if there are "full short stories" in some, I tend to just jump over them...
And I'm not sure people can write "off screen" then try to fit in, lots happens inbetween...

(sorry)

Everyone was busy when Scarlet came down that morning.
Suddenly the room was full, and she felt completely lost.

"They're all so busy", she thought, "nobody will pay attention to me."

She chose a quiet corner out of the way, where one of the new guys had already clearer the table and chairs, and surreptitiously opened one of her books, eyes quickly darting from one line to the next.
Just one problem: Scarlet hadn't realised that Zael could see across the room, and he was noticing that the book was talking about them. Them, the exactly people in this room, explaining who was who, and what they were supposed to do next.

"Hmmmm - there's even *more* to this lady than I realised. She may be dangerous to my hidden objective", Zael started getting worried.

"Look, I know you know", whispered Scarlet to Zael.
"Now that we're alone, I can tell you I don't believe for a second that the Bryn guy is the hero, but if that helps Doc, let's all go along with the lie. And in the meantime, find out why exactly Bryn told us that story.

I'm off to sleep myself...
...and by the way, if I was you, I'd take very good care of the talisman and not let the others see it for what it is.
And don't waste energy on a bunch of silly were-people", she grinned, "they would have gone away if you'd just thrown gin all over them".

Ah, ok :)
I only know by heart the time difference to Indiana/South Carolina and Memphis, those are the US locations that I work with, hehe, and if 9pm is 4pm for you, then you're in the same time zone as Memphis.


Oooooh we have a brand new special zone!

By GMT I assume you mean "Greenwich Mean Time", which is London time. I'm 3 hours north of London, so that is directly 9pm for me.
Now it's 5.45 pm here, how can it be 4pm for you?

EDIT: Just to make sure, can you and Bea make it to 9 PM GMT August 1? (tomorrow)

Yep, I'm around tomorrow, but what exactly does that mean? Do we have to be online at that exact time? I had read that deadline as "anyone who hasn't posted in the recruitment threads until then is out", but Ben and I have already posted.

Well, I thought it would be a good push in the beginning with everyone being on at one time, but if that's too much trouble, then a gradual move and cut-off is fine. Whatever works best for y'all. :)

No, that works for me, I wasn't planning on going out. I'll put the alarm in ;D
(unless my parents call, just my luck, and then I might just step out)

But won't that cause a big mess, if everyone is posting at the same time without reading what the others have done before?

more as the "You cross over a line and I'll smash your head in with one of my books."
Drats, my cover has been blown ;D
