-red haired child returns! Lying on the ground knocked out-
-Watches Luffy with mute concern.-
-a gray-skinned horned woman in a dress rushes into the kitchen with a fire extinguisher-
-looks to Leon- It was the oddest thing. This ship swooped out if the sky just as Lord Vivec's barrier fell - and something scooped us up in the blink of an eye and placed us here. In the ship. We've been flying away from Nirn for hours now.
Roomship (Leon), (Nemo), (Alice), and (Yuri)
-Nemo spots the red-haired guy on the ground, and quickly kneels down next to him.-
"...Are you injured...? Can you stand...?"
-If the red-haired kid opens his eyes, he'll see the dull red eye and black cloth of Nemo, the rogue boy!-
-Leon, meanwhile, finally gets more properly to his feet, looking intently towards Jiub.-
"That's right... I remember Sendou saying something about a race, and..."
-Wait, their surroundings...-
"...This place... It's different. The wind is similar, and yet distanced from the wind of the crossroads."
-And... so many winds he's never felt...-
-And others that...-
"...Sendou. Where is Sendou?"
-He looks more intently towards all of the piles of unconscious people, and...-
-...He's not here.-
"His wind... It's not here."

-His arm retracts and snaps back into place, as he lets out a hearty shishishi-
It's 'cause I'm a rubberman!
-He looks over at the horned woman as she sprints into the kitchen.-
(@Yuri) Thanks! I've earned this bod, ya know. Hard work and a lot of beef bowls pay off in time.
(@Luffy) You're a rubberman, huh? Are you a Chojin?
I'm fine—… Oh god I'm back here?!
... Uh, fine—… What's with the hood?
-he looks around at all the people in the room, becoming quite uncomfortable-

-Peter shot up with what was meant to be a shout, but ended up being a half-cry-squeak as he choked on air for a moment, coughing-
-Rubbing at his head as he regained himself for a moment, before using the wall to stand-
Oh my god...
Roomship (Nemo), (Alice), and (Yuri)
-Yuri chuckles, herself.-
-What can she say, laughter is contagious!-
"A rubberman, huh? Dang, that's something!"
-Alice looks towards Kinnikuman while still sticking by Yuri.-
"Beef bowls...? What are they like...?"
-Alice's family is a little... uppity... She hasn't really gotten to go to any nice beef bowl places before...-
-Nemo, meanwhile, just stares down at Michael.-
"...I have to conceal my face... I could be found..."
Man, did I hear an explosion earlier??
-A man in a plaid shirt comes down the stairs-
Oh! You're all up! Sorry about leaving you all on the floor like that, there was a crazy rush earlier!
Does anyone need medical attention?
(A figure with long, platinum hair sits in an orthopedic desk chair, facing the wall, back turned to the crowd. They speak in a soft voice, hard to pin a gender down.)
It's very fortunate you're all alive. I don't mean this in a sense of "you owe us gratitude and fealty", mind you. It is genuinely nothing short of a miracle that we were able to take you up in time after honing in on your distress signal... But there are some of you yet unaccounted for?
(@Alice) Never seen a beef bowl before? (pulls out a Yoshinoya-style beef bowl out of hammerspace) Here's a beef bowl! (hands it to Alice)
(@Man and other man) Uh, who are you two?
Oh uh... Yeah, I think that might be easy here.
Unaccounted for information yeah. What's going on???

-Peter looks blearily to Near-
Where's... one minute everyone was lining up for the races, the next there was that huge explosion and that... noise...
And I thought I saw someone I knew...
-He tilts his head at Kinniku-
Uhhh, "Joe Chin?" Is that a word for "pirate?"
-He notices Near and looks toward him-
No thanks, I'm feelin' fine!
-He sits down, crosslegged, on the couch-
Man....this place filled up real fast!
Oh, sorry. Here!
-He walks up to Kinnikuman and passes him a business card◊-
It's a little dated, but that's me. Yusuke Godai. -He flashes him the smile and thumbs up printed on the card-
Was there more of you down there we didn't get...? I'm sorry if that's the case...
-Nemo stands back up, giving Michael a chance to get up more properly.-
"...Who are you...?"
-Leon, meanwhile, looks towards the newly introduced person with silver hair.-
"Yes, I can confirm that many people aren't present. I can't feel their wind at all."
-Leon steps closer towards Near, still serious.-
"What do you know?"
-Alice's eyes widen a little at the sudden beef bowl.-
"O-Oh my... This is..."
-She's... never had one... She's actually a little nervous.-
-Would her parents approve...? Then again, they were never around anyway...-
"Oh man, that looks REALLY good!"
-Alice nods. It really does...-
"T-Thank you, Mr. Kinnikuman..."
-She says that quietly, but she is thankful.-
-She takes a small bite of the noodles, and...-
-Slurp, slurp, slurp, slurp...-
"Hehehehehe! Dang, it really IS good if she's sucking it down like that! Thanks, Kinnikuman!"
-Alice looks towards the others that actually woke up here after finishing up a bite of the noodles.-
"...I-I'm sorry... If we missed someone, I... I..."
"Hey, it's OK, Alice... We tried our best, and that's what matters, right?"
-Yuri then looks more towards the others.-
"We wanted to get everyone possible, but I guess we didn't quite make it, huh...?"
-Yuri says that with a large, sheepish smile as she rubs the back of her head.-
(@Luffy) No, it means superhero in my language. What's a pirate like you doing out here?
(@Alice and Yuri) Not a problem! I'm glad you enjoyed my meal! (laughs)
(@Yusuke Godai) (reads the card) It's nice to meetcha, Mr. Godai!
(He stays still and doesn't turn away from the wall, but a finger reaches up and begins twirling a strand of his hair.)
Unfortunate that none of us seem to know very much, myself included... But such are dire situations, it's understandable. I am Near, and what matters is that you're now relatively safe with us, on our Homevessel. What was it you were doing down there before this explosion?
Homevessel? Uh, it's actually called the Roomship.
-Peter looks around at the slightly different configuration of the place-
-Running his hand on unfamiliar wallpaper-
-He looks at Near, confused-
...Eh? What's a "Hamvassel?"
Oh, man! That's a LONG story....
It's Home-vessel, Luffy. I thought Near said it enough that it stuck?
-He looks to Petey- You said something about a race?
Homevessel (The Group)
-What the group was doing? Well, Leon supposes they deserve a bit of an explanation...-
"All of us are from different dimensions. We appeared in that place, and several of us were going to participate in a race... However, what ensued wasn't something any of us could have expected."
-Yuri decides to speak up.-
"Wait a minute, you guys are like us?"
"...W-We're from different dimensions, too... I-I think..."
"Yeah! We haven't been on the Homevessel very long, but we haven't heard anybody talking about a 'Roomship'!"
"Y-Yes... We've been traveling..."
-Alice mentally sighs to herself, thankful that she is well stocked on supplies...-
"Yuri and I... we were... returning home from school when we appeared here..."
-There was a pause in what she said, if that's worth mentioning to anyone.-
-Leon looks towards the two girls...-
-And then he looks back to Near.-
"...The wind here is different. It's not the same as our Roomship. It's similar, but distinct."
-He looks over at Godai-
I'm not even listenin' to him half the time!
....Oh- uhh...I probably shouldn't have said that in front of him.
-He POINTS at Near-
You didn't hear that!

(@Luffy) Great! Can you sum it up in less than 20 words?
(@Godai and Near) Eh? What's a Homevessel?!
-he has no idea about the race, but looks at kiniku and luff-
... Fancy word for Home base.
