Friday was busier than Aeryn had anticipated somehow, with people coming in from out of town, followed by the rehearsal at the hotel where the ceremony and reception would take place. And personally, she had no idea how anyone remembered how all of this sort of thing went, and she thought it was kind of stupid how much emphasis was put on something as simple as walking, but she'd go with it, as apparently these things were important. Or something.

Afterwards, the group made their way to a pizza place nearby to settle in and settle down and have one good night out before tomorrow got more stressful.

[Up early for SP. For bridal party, dates, and other guests to the Friday thingie yay!
ETA: For clarification, cuz a couple people have asked. If you were told you were welcome to the dinner, you were invited. Otherwise the wedding stuff takes place tomorrow.]
If pressed, Aeryn would say that the reason that she didn't sleep well last night was that she wasn't used to the bed after spending the weekend in the hotel, even though being transferred from place to place and sleeping in different places depending on assignment was practically ingrained into her genetic code. She hadn't slept well all weekend, actually, and it wasn't that she hadn't had a good time over homecoming. She really had. She liked being able to see her friends and catch up and be able to see them when she talked to them instead of using the phone. This was all while ignoring the Luxan, of course. And Lee.

There was just one little thing that just kept nagging at her.

Giving up early, Aeryn got up and dressed, and headed out, returning a while later with a bag in hand to lock herself in the bathroom. She'd wanted to do this earlier, just to have some sort of proof, but she didn't want to risk it ending up on the radio. Privacy was one plus Cambridge had over Fandom.

She read the directions about five times before taking the test, and about ten times after seeing the result, just in case she could blame this on not being a native English-reader. She knew better, though. She'd done it right, and she didn't think Aly would lie to her. She did consider making another trip out, though. Maybe a different brand would be wrong. Best out of three, even.
Aeryn can't sleep, so she's up and doing things. Namely, trying to read her way through the Apple website to see if her iPod is going to end up growing to Winslow-size.

She finally shuts the computer down, putting it on the table next to her phone, which she now realizes has a picture on it. And that's another one to add to her collection. And maybe her phone background.

[Establishy, yay.]

So today has mainly been stilted conversation, gym, more handwaved stilted conversation, alone time in 209, and finally another return to 238. Aeryn's's a little surprised to see that John's gone, but she'll just be glad that he's getting out.

If she's being honest, this whole thing is really hard, and today was just kind of the day where she actually realized that. Add to that yesterday's Ethics class and Peter's phone call and Aeryn is once again having One of Those Days. Weeks. Whatever.

It's quiet in the room, but she's getting used to that, so she gets a bottle of water and sits down with her bio notes, because no one ever told her studying on a Friday night wasn't cool.

[Door's closed, post is open.]
Just then, a shot from a pulse rifle rang through the crowd, and a team of Peacekeeper soldiers formed a wall in front of them, trying to block one avenue of escape. People began to scatter for cover, or in some cases, for their own weapons.

From a distance, the commerce planet just looked like any other ordinary world. It wasn't until anyone got closer that they would notice just how busy it was. It didn't look too out of the ordinary, just a marketplace, except it was bigger than any old marketplace.

There were outdoor and indoor areas, lined with carts and shops, people shopping and selling and sometimes stealing. The people didn't look human, either, ranging widely in size and species, and a good deal of them weren't even bothering to hide the weapons they were carrying.

Anyone walking in from the landing area would suddenly be right in the middle of it.

Aeryn spent her afternoon training Peter, and when she gets back to the room, she's ready to go looking for something to eat.

She finds the package of Goldfish crackers, and remembering her conversation with Dawn, brings them over to the shark tank. She doesn't do anything, just moves it in front of the tank, wondering if Bruno would go for it. She's slightly disappointed when he doesn't seem to care.

Aeryn didn't mind the cabins this time around. Still, for a couple reasons that involve having to find somewhere with locking doors and the subsequent embarrassment, she needs to be back in the dorms. So yes, fine, she's moving early- even if she's not supposed to- as soon as she's done at the Meerkat campfire. And yes, her stuff is going straight back to 238.

She's barely in the door when she sees something run across the room and into the kitchen. It's not Bertram, there are no pets left in the room right now, and that makes Aeryn suspicious. Careful not to make too much noise, she follows it, and there she sees the gremlin. It hasn't grabbed anything yet, and Aeryn's not going to let it. Grabbing a pan left on the counter, she goes to hit it-

Which is when the gremlin startles, and takes a bite into her hand before trying to scurry off. Aeryn's reaction is to kick it, sending the thing flying. She walks over, prods it, and satisfied that it's dead, she notices Bertram on one of the walls. "Clean that up, will you?" she asks.

And then she looks at her hand. After a lot of cursing, she goes to the door and locks it.

Of course, that doesn't help, since unless the venom makes her hallucinate that she's stupid, she'll still be able to unlock a door. As it is, she does unlock the locker. And gets her outfit from Halloween, which she had planned to burn, once upon a time. This would include a long white dress and a blonde wig that she wouldn't have even remembered she had. When she's finally done primping- yes, primping- Aeryn decides she's ready for an audience. It'll be good to get out of this stuffy place.
