Snooze's time is his own to spend as he wants, out in the black. Mitz has not stolen anything. He does enjoy playing host, as Mitz says.

Well...Mitz supposes it would be rude to deny Snooze something that he enjoys? That sounds wrong. But if Snooze puts it like that, still seems rude to leave.

Mitz is free to go as he chooses, but he is also free to stay. Snooze spends a great deal of time alone on this ship. It is... good to have company.

Mitz hovers for a second, then points at a cushion. Can he sit there, please?

Mitz smiles as he sits. He would love some. It's been...a while. Mitz has kind of gotten used to not having it.

Snooze sorts through his tea selection, trying to pick something that he thinks Mitz would remember from living in the Core. How long has Mitz been out here in the black, as they say?

Uh. Mitz isn't sure? He left a little while after Jerel d--decided to go. He's been on a few worlds along the way, tagging along. His whole understanding of the passage of time is a little screwy. He wants to say about a year and a half? Feels right. No-one's told him otherwise?

He must have seen so many things. Snooze puts the tea on, then comes to kneel in the pillows across the low table from Mitz. Kneeling feels more comfortable than sitting sometimes, with his training. Where is his favourite place that he has been? (feel free to handwave~ Snooze is just being desperately lonely~)

Here, Mitz answers quickly. Hands down the best place so far. He doesn't have to fight for anything, which---well, okay, he's not good at that so he usually ends up with less food than he should have. That happened a lot in other places. Cap'n makes sure everyone's fed, at least. And he gets to have his own room. And his brother's here, which is---it's not what he expected. Snooze is here, being kind to him. That's really not expected, to find anyone who isn't, y'know, obligated to be nice to him to actually be nice to him. Here's the best. Mitz smiles a little. (Continue to be lonely and desperate, Snooze, please, Mitz is starting to annoy me)

Snooze likes this ship, as well. He has seen so many places, met so many people--places and people he could not have imagined, growing up in the Core. It provides a valuable insight into the galaxy. And he likes knowing that he has made the Captain's cut of people decent enough to have on the ship. The ship itself is certainly less glamorous than Snooze has seen but it has a--quality. He is not sure how to describe it.

Mitz smiles gently. He thinks every ship has that, a quality. But it depends on who can spot it. He thinks...he thinks maybe everyone on the ship knows that she's a great ship. Even if she is beat up, she's got something. He doesn't know why he likes that Snooze caught that about her. He just--he really does. Speaks to Snooze's own character, he thinks.

Snooze is flattered. To have the ship's engineer praise his own insight about the ship is not something he ever thought he would achieve. He likes the praise. Does Mitz have plans for the ship? Does he have a list of things he wants to try?

Mitz exhales with a hiss. Yeah, he's got ideas. But it's not his ship? He's here to maintain and fix, that's all. Maybe when he's--he doesn't know. If he ever manages to have his own ship for whatever reason, maybe then he'll do things. But he doesn't want to ruin anything.

Snooze thinks Mitz would not ruin anything, but he understands the concern over changing things about the Captain's ship. Technically he rents this shuttle, and yet still he is reluctant to adjust anything. Most of these hangings are held in place through easily removable stickings, he points out, gesturing to the curtains that dress the dull shuttle walls and surround and shield the bed off to the other end.

It makes all the difference, Mitz tells Snooze. It really seems like they're somewhere else, not on the ship. Mitz loves the ship! He does. But sometimes it can be...rough. It's not rough in here. Like Snooze has made somewhere safe even out here in the black.

Safe. The smile that spreads across Snooze's face is small, but warm. He likes the sound of that, and it is how he feels, too. He needs somewhere safe, out here, sometimes. And this place, it is still recognisably the shuttle, and yet it has Snooze's own mark on it. The engine room is like that for Mitz, is it not? Snooze has been past sometimes, before and after Mitz was on the ship, and it seems different now.

Mitz looks, for a moment, panicked. Did--did Mitz miss Snooze? When he was passing? That's rude. Sometimes, just sometimes, Mitz gets...sort of...involved? With work? Uh. Sorry. He, uh. Wow. That's so rude. Mitz never figures that anyone will be down there, so he just gets distracted.

Snooze likes to wander sometimes, when the shuttle becomes restrictive rather than comforting, and he can be very quiet when he wants to be. He has occasionally surprised Max on the bridge, which he considers a personal achievement. Mitz need not think himself rude. If Snooze had wanted to interrupt, he would have made himself known, but those rare times he did venture near the engine room it did always look like Mitz was working.

Mitz is still sorry. Snooze should say something next time. Really, all he's usually doing is keeping things ticking over. A few moments to talk won't, you know, won't have them spaced. Will Snooze say something next time? He doesn't have to. But Mitz'd like that.

Well, they have met properly now, and Snooze will not feel like he is imposing. He will be sure to speak up the next time he goes walking. (which is probably like at least two or three times a week, usually in the middle of the 'night' of the last planet they've left, while he's ticking over in his own head about which clients to accept)

Mitz smiles, nodding. That'd be nice, he thinks. And Mitz could---

He was going to say that he could get them heated tea on the engine if Snooze brings the leaves, but he's interrupted by a huge crashbang and the whole ship rocking like they momentarily lost gravity. Without another word, Mitz runs out of the shuttle and down to the engines. If he's needed anywhere else then he'll be told but he has to know if the engine is okay first.

Snooze has nowhere to be in case of an incursion. Mostly, Max's orders are 'stay' and 'don't get in anyone's way', which Snooze is only too happy to do. He braces the door shut with a chest, fetches his sword and very, very bravely, hides behind a curtain, dead silent and still.

There's noise outside. He hears two gunshots. Max is not going to like that. Shooting holes in a tin can in the middle of space is not anyone's idea of fun.

Should he go out there? He doesn't have a gun, and clearly they do.

Then he remembers the intercom. It's all the way across the other side of the room, but there's a possibility that someone else might try to contact Snooze on it. Did Mitz turn it on when he finished installing it? Who else has the channel? Only one way to find out.

Snooze slides out from behind his curtain and pads on stockinged feet to the intercom.

The light is blinking. He hits the button--and he can hear what's going on on the other end.

Mitz doesn't see anyone while he runs. He goes straight to the engine--which is humming along quite happily. That means that the noise he and Snooze heard in Snooze's shuttle was something else.

Swearing softly to himself, knowing that means something very bad and very wrong, he fishes the gun he hid behind his hammock in the corner of the engine room. He knows how to use it, but he doesn't much want to.

He can hear voices that he doesn't recognise from deeper in the ship but they're getting closer. Shouts. There's gunfire. More shouting. Mitz takes cover at the doorway and closes his eyes for a moment because he knows that he can't shoot anyone. If he shoots, they'll shoot at him and they might hit the engine. Not only would that kill what he's been proudly working on for so long now, but it would put the whole crew in danger. Mitz swears again.

"Where is he?" A rough voice. Someone Mitz doesn't know. He can hear the captain say something in a low snarky tone, but too quiet to make out.

A woman with one eye missing (but no eye-patch, which Mitz decides is too disgusting) turns the corner into the engine room with her gun drawn. They lock eyes immediately and Mitz sets his jaw, raising the gun at her. Maybe he can bluff his way to get her to leave?

"Found him, boss!" She shouts back over her shoulder without taking her eyes from Mitz. She drops her voice, talking directly to him. "You're coming with us. It'd make it real easy if you just come along nice and easy."

"The hell?" Mitz actually drops his aim a little in surprise--a mistake, because as soon as he does the woman moves quicker than he was expecting and smacks him between the eyes with the butt of her gun.

Mitz yells, but then everything goes dark.

Only some of the shipwide intercoms are on. Snooze hears conversation like it's on the other side of a wall or door--bits and pieces, only clear on the raised parts. He switches channels, and suddenly it's like they're right there in the room, arguing with Max as he suffers a couple of smacks to the face in defiance of whatever it is they want.

They keep asking about 'him', and whoever he is, he's not Max. Jerel? Wouldn't be the first time someone's gone to lengths to get their hands on a doctor. Snooze has never been kidnapped but he's heard of Companions who have.

Then he hears the women, and Mitz.

If there's one thing Snooze knows, it's that Mitz will not fight to save himself--he's just not that type. Snooze has learned a lot about people. He knows. And he hears Mitz cry out, and by the time the woman's dark laughter echoes through his shuttle, he's shoving the chest aside and slipping into the hold.

They've been forcefully boarded; the hold doors are busted open, smoking gently from the gel they'd used to burn through the hull. They'd have to fix that before disentangling themselves, or else the hold would be so much vacuum, and they'd have to dump the cargo. It would be possible to limp to the next planet with a giant hole in the hold doors, but it wouldn't be fun; Snooze would be on his own in his shuttle, or else cut off from it as they isolated the hold from the rest of the ship.

Think about that later. Snooze pads on bare feet through the hold, his sword extended at his side. The intercom he'd heard through was the engine room. They'd have to return to their ship this way. He'd do best to hide by the door and spring them as they tried to leave, even if he did run the risk of hitting Mitz.

He pressed himself to the wall next to the door they'd have to come through, and readied his sword. He felt--cold. Still. Ready.

Mitz is slung over the shoulder of the woman, who would be formidable looking even if she had two eyes. She isn't expecting anyone to be waiting for her, though, and when Snooze attacks her she's caught off guard. With a frustrated grunt and a splash of blood from her arm, she drops Mitz to the hard metal of the floor and glares at Snooze, his sword, then draws her gun.

He brought a sword to a gunfight. His only hope was to disarm her--either literally, or gunwise. Snooze has to ignore Mitz for now as he moves into tight quarters. Guns are ranged weapons. He can't afford to let her aim and get off a good shot, and he's pretty sure the captain would appreciate it if he didn't let her blow too many holes in the ship.

Snooze uses his silks to their best advantage. His robes are more than just pretty right now.

Then, of course, her friends show up. But so do Snooze's.

Max's eyebrow is split and blood is slowly trickling down the side of his head--and he looks /pissed/. He and Mouse stand on either side of Snooze with their guns drawn and pointed at the pirates in front of them.

Mitz is still lying prone to the side. He has a head wound too, a little square cut between his eyes.

The pirates stomped down to their ally at the same time as Max and Mouse's arrival, but they're an extra man strong. The woman who had been taking Mitz bares her teeth.

"No-one needs to die here," she says but with no hint of actually meaning peace. "You keep going and someone will. You'll get another engine monkey and it'll be easier to do that if you let us go. Wouldn't want to space anyone here just to teach a lesson."

To his credit, Max doesn't push Snooze and his sword out of the way of the line of fire. He just levels his own gun with a grim look. "He's not going anywhere, darlin'."

Snooze doesn't have to flourish his sword to show off. He knows he has perfect stance and he's well within reach of at least two major arteries with one quick step.

He says, simply, his chin tilted slightly towards Max with his eyes on the pirates: "They made him bleed."

Mouse is shifting slightly, slightly, to line up a good shot.

It's going to take only the slightest provocation to strike the match.
