The Grand Re-Vizier"That...would explain some things." So apparently what he was feeling happened to be every speck of metal in the entire ship, which would...take some getting used to at the least. It also meant the wriggling presence in the back of his mind was a Fury, if he was thinking of the right series. On a whim, he tried to pull his apparent "metal sense" back a little to try and keep from being overwhelmed but found that it merely sharpened the amount of detail he took in from that smaller sphere. He thought for a moment, searching through what he could remember about Metalcrafting from the Codex Alera and augmenting what he knew with what his newfound memories could tell him. He drew the slight, slippery presence in the back of his mind forward, and suddenly what felt like a wall of steel came between his thoughts and his feelings. It was an odd sensation. The emotional aspect of him was still there as were his physical sensations like the constant pain in his left leg that even his cane did little to alieviate, but both were incredibly distant to the point where he was barely aware of them. Instead he felt...calm and sturdy, as though if he needed to he could go on for weeks without needing anything at all. He leaned on his leg experimentally, and found he could do so without any immediate consequences. To prove it he began dancing, weaving his legs in an intricate pattern, only focusing on a particular spot of metal on the floor and finding his body tended to guide towards it on his own. Inside the distant box where his emotions were sealed, he found this pleased him quite a lot, and he noticed that the presence in his mind was likewise pleased. "Excellent, thank you, George."

George smiles and closes his book. George: No problem. Whatever Metalcrafting is, it helped you out. Just glad I could do that much.

The Grand Re-Vizier"So, I assume that we all got something from a universe we're at least passingly familiar with?" August wondered aloud.
George: I'm assuming so. Final Fantasy III is one of my favorite games, even if I did only play the DS version.
As if.Michael simply observed the newcomer, and while he and George were talking, he began to make calculations. This was... how to put it... awesome. With all the knowledge he obtained from the Colonel, he suddenly became an "expert" in Math and Chemistry, classes he hated back in school. Even though it was extremely hard to just give up and become the Colonel, having his knowledge, memories and (he still had to test this) powers looked like a pleasant experience. "Let's just settle things down for a moment." He tapped his chin, and with a calm expression, began laying down what he figured out: "There are four of us, and we all obtained the powers from fictional universes. George obviously got his from a electronic entertrainment device. And I got mine from a japanese animated show. " Michael began to walk towards the group as he continued to talk: "From what I could gather, Viktor got his from a live action series, and Augustus... I'm not quite sure. Therefore, we may be able to find a person whose powers come from either a live-action movie, an animated movie, or an animated show." He crouched and began to "write" things on the ground: "Right now we need to figure out our location- either by finding a map of this ship or creating one ourselves. Doing this, we should spark up the interest of the being who brought us here, and possibly find out who he is. If he doesn't make a move, we'll at least know the ship better, and we'll be able to drive it." He got back up on his feet, his expression more stern than calm, and with his hands behind his back, he finished: "However, we don't know the extent of all of our powers, so it may be useful for us to go through the ship alone, so we can't hurt each other if anything happens. We still need to figure out a method of talking to each other. Walkie-talkies, radios, flares, even bangs on the wall, anything works." Looking at the rest of the ship, he finished his little speech, and turned around, his posture mimicking the one of a Colonel: "Got it? Or do I need to explain it again?"
George: I understand it. I should probably Study this place first so that we can get a basic outline of what this place is. That's okay, right?
Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of OrderViktor sighs, "There will be no need for you to do that. We are on a Ha'tak. It's a Go'auld mothership, and this is the Pel'tak. It is, quite frankly, gigantic. To put it into perspective, the pyramids were designed as landing platforms for it. The outside looks like a huge pyramid with a sort of triangular thing around it. It has flight, combat, shielding, cloaking, and hyperspace travel. It can serve as a hanger for both Death Gliders and the... Whatever they're called... Bomber thingies. It can be used for both ship to ship combat and orbital bombardment. It's... Uh... It looks really cool."
George: Oh. Okay, so I won't need to Study this place. We should probably still search it. I should be fine on my own. I can tank, heal, cast magic, and act as a general Jack Of All Trades.
Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of Order"Well, I already did some exploring before coming here, and the ship appears to be extremely damaged... I mean, I believe that this is the only undamaged room in the ship, or, at least, the only one I could find. Which is a good thing. I mean, the Pel'tak is needed to fly this thing. Of course, an engine would help..." Viktor trails off, staring out of the window in front of him.
George: Really? Well, too bad I don't have an Engineer job in this list. It'd really help. Do you think anyone else will be showing up?
Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of OrderViktor ponders, "Well, probably. I mean, all of us showed up with some sort of plot coupon or contrivance, so reason tells me that we'll see a lot more tropes, and we don't have enough for a Five-Man Band, though I'm not sure who would be what, we have too many for a Power Trio, and we have no where near enough people for a Rag Tag Band Of Misfits."
Well if we did a five man band, then I'd obviously be The Smart Guy, what with my Study ability and all.
As if."I doubt it." Michael scratched his chin: "Right now, we need to figure out where on Earth... or space. Lieutenant." He pointed towards George before mumbling a few words before correcting himself: "I mean, George. See if you can use your ability to find a window or something like that. Or any sign of the owner of that straw hat. I understand the ship is gigantic, but maybe you'll be able to find a location or something."
Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of OrderViktor grins, "And I'm obviously The Hero because I'm the best, and I'm the one with the spaceship. The fire alchemy guy or the furycrafter would probably be The Brute... Though I could see the fire alchemy guy as The Chick because he seems to be handling this the worst, and I could see the furycrafter as The Lancer or The Smart Guy, and I could see you has The Lancer too."
George pulled out his Study book again and started flipping through the pages. George: Let's see... No, nope, nothing here... Hm. George closed the book. George: Nope. No way my study ability can tell me that... But let me try something else. White Mage! George changed into the standard White Mage garb, and he closed his eyes. He seemed to be concentrating very hard. You should probably give him a minute.
As if.Michael sighed, before raising his voice: "While this trope discussion is stupid, I must put in my opnion. Which is: I'm not The Chick, got it? Can we get back to the important part?"
KEEP SMILING!Suddenly, the four could hear a humming noise as a blue light emerged from a large screen. "N.A.V.I. systems operational." A robot voice spoke out as the screen showed a CGI picture of a blue sphere of light with wings. "Lifeform scan successful. Lifeforms on this ship include: Roy Mustang. Araris Valerian. And. Onion Kid. One Lifeform is unknown. Main Lifeform: Monkey D. Luffy is missing." The computer said.

Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of Order"Why wouldn't you be The Ch- Fuck. We're going Avatar. Anyway... Computer! I am Emperor Viktor Novak Brown. Monkey D Luffy is missing, and presumed dead, as is everyone else who were on this ship previously. I am your captain now."

George pulled out of his concentration. George: Oh. There's that explained. Never mind then. But yeah, I could feel you guys as well. Nobody was around other than us.
As if."I don't think that is how you're supposed to speak to that machine, Viktor. Do you think it'll reply so well to it losing its captain?"
Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of OrderViktor looks confused, "What? I was just updating it on the situation. Did I really say something wrong?"
As if."How about this... Computer. This is Colonel... don't believe I'm gonna say this... Roy Mustang. Your ship's captain has gone MIA. I request you pass over control of this ship to me. Also, I would like to ask where are we located."
Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of OrderViktor looks slightly hurt, "...Control of the ship to you? But it's my ship! I found it!"
KEEP SMILING!"After watching the recorded camera footage, I can confirm that Luffy is dead. However, this doesn't mean I'll hand over the ship. In the event that Luffy would die, his successor must answer a question only Luffy would know. This is to ensure that no enemies would steal this ship." The ship said. On the screen, it revealed three circles, and all twenty six letters of the alphabet. " Of these twenty six letters, only three are used in this word. If you are truly Luffy's successor, then you would know the name of his brother." N.A.V.I said. — Nanabey scurried until it found the ship. "There! We-" she said. Suddenly, she saw someone walking to the ship as well: Tsukasa and Nicholas. "What... What are they doing here?" Nanabey said. "Did you really think your captain could kill me that easily?" Tsukasa said. Nicholas looked to the girl Nanabey was next to. "I'm here for this ship. And I will restart Dai-Shocker's reign!" Tsukasa said.

George: N.A.V.I, this is Onion Kid. I've been given this confidential information in the event of Luffy's death. The name of Luffy's brother is Ace, spelled A-C-E.
