Long Grain

Non-living but with a HUGE heart

0 · 217 views · located in The Cruise Ship Long Grain

a character in “The Long Grain's First and Last Voyage”, as played by YouDontKnowThisGuy

Description

Appearance: (Pic here.)
Name: Long Grain
Type: Luxury Cruise Ship
Age: 1
Sex: Boat?
Sexuality: Strictly Boatsexual

Bad Trait 1: Often makes creaking noises like something is going to break.
Bad Trait 2: Doesn't like the cold.
Major Skill: Very beautifully built.
Minor Skill: Picks up speed quickly.

Bio: Built a year ago, this ship spent nearly 3 years half built before it was finished due to the original company building it going bankrupt. The project was restarted when the assets were bought by a larger company. While it is primarily a luxury ship, it has been contracted to carry some cargo for the few stops it has along its journey.

Personality: Incredibly protective of all its passengers and loyal to its captain. Enjoys seeing new places but needs a bit of a break once in a while. Due to how long it sat half built, sometimes it makes creaking noises that are rarely something serious and the cold can cause problems with the engine and hull. Using creaks it often enjoys singing to the creatures swiming in the sea below it.

Special Trait: (DO NOT fill this in. At some point in the plot this will be revealed.)

So begins...

SETTING

With all of its passengers finally on board, the ship slowly starts to pull away from the dock. The sea here is warm, something the ship is grateful for as it forges on into deeper waters. The sky is clear, and the scents of the sea fill the air. The PA system crackles and a low gruff voice fills the air.

"Hello, everyone, this is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard the Long Grain, the largest cruise ship in the world. As you may know this ship is built for your entertainment; there's a pool on the deck and a bar for those of you who like the taste of whiskey. Down below we have the large Gambling Hall and the Gym. If you head down even lower you'll notice what I like to call the moving aquarium; a large portion of the hull completely made of glass with lights so you can see deep into the depths. There are hundreds of cabins so go ahead and take your pick. However, if none of that sounds appealing then let me tell just what you'll see on this trip."

For a few moments it is silence, but then there's another crackle and the voice continues, " ... do I look like I'm stupid? Mind your station Jerry or I'll have you mopping the deck with the janitors ... again. Oh crap, I pressed the button ... don't give me that look!"

The PA goes silent again and then the voice came back with a small laugh. More laughter can be heard in the background as the captain continues, "As you may know, we'll be making a complete circuit of the world. On our travels we'll see waters that are brighter than the night sky, because of the glowing jellyfish that hang out near the surface of the water. We'll be escorted by humpback whales and, thanks to some incredible patronage a few of you will get the chance to swim with the dolphins. We'll be making a stop in waters so clear, that you can see into the pristine depths to the bottom of the ocean. For the next 156 days, you won't step on land but I can assure you that you'll remember this trip for the rest of your lives."

There was another slight pause before the captain came on again, a bit more serious this time, "However, before we can get to all that fun, I'd like to call everyone to the deck so that we can go over some safety procedures. When you get to the deck, please find your nearest hostess and they will explain the lifeboats and what to do in case of emergency. I hope you all enjoy your ship and ... for the love of god Jerry! What did I tell you about putting gum on the bottom of my desk!?"

The PA system cuts out and people begin to make their way to the deck.
