｢THE TIMELESS SHIP THAT GLIDES THROUGH THE STARS｣ THE VIRTUOUS VICTORIAN
A space faring ship, powered by both magical and mechanical means. It bears a strange familiarity to a ship of a video game not a lot of people have heard about... The interior features a style not unlike one would see in an optimistic future setting, with a more personal touch with decorative moving golden gears and self sustaining terrariums in a few areas. For some reason, it feels as if the interior is far larger than one would assume...There are 4 known floors, accessible via teleporter pads and ladders.
While a few sections of the ship (mostly areas that have the ship's more intricate parts) are off limits via locked doors, There are a number of areas that guests are free to roam in include the infirmary, several sleeping quarters, a main lounge (with a kitchen...for some reason) and the control room (though those who aren't authorized are unable to take control of the ship).
While it may seem like it would be an incredibly quiet and lonely ship for just a single person to pilot, it's not as lonely as it could be; holograms of people with a variety of appearances fill the ship, each having a varied, but still helpful personality. While artificial, it still gives the place a warm, welcoming vibe.

The group is teleported to the control room...While it seems that the ship is in high alert. The fabricated characters in the room fumble around, as if trying to find a reason to why it is so.
"Status report, now!"
｢Commander. It seems there is a strange, unexplainable phenomenon that has spread not only to here, but to the entire universe itself. We are unable to discern what it may be.｣ The voice of the person who replied seems awfully familiar.
Kat is a little perturbed. What may have happened in the short transition from the desert to the ship?
"I need more info."
｢See for yourself, Commander.｣
Several holographic screens show from the central device in the room. Each containing a video feed of many different locations, from Korous to Starter Planet, and even some others. As well as a portion of the space around the areas. A strange prismatic aura surrounds each and every one in a strange blanket.
Both Elsey and Kat are a little off put by this. "What in the fuck..." "This is....What is this...?"

Seth gathers his bearings upon appearing in the command room. It seems the crew isn't so calm. He follows behind Kat and Elsey and takes in what's been happening. He watches the screens, all with the mysterious rainbow roads going across them.
This is not normal.
"what the fuck..." What could be the cause of this? What is he kidding, who else would be responsible for something on such a cosmic scale?
"...CHAAAAARLES!" the camera pans out as Seth yells up at the ceiling in a dramatic fashion.
That has to be the only explanation. Nobody else could possibly fuck up more than him.
Niki appears and just sorta looks around. Had she been in this room last time she got a ride? It's hard to tell. She just sorta watches the chaos go on, not really knowing what's going on. ...and then she hear's Seth's exclamation. She's not sure if she's more confused or less confused.
Niki takes the time to examine the screens. Streaming rainbows swirling upon the backdrops of the stars, submerging the blackness of space in the mystic colors. "...this doesn't exactly look like a Charles thing. He would never flood space in rainbows with his shenanigans. It's not exactly his style to make something that looks cool. ➜"
Niki then remembers something, perhaps from a lost memory.
When she and the others were pursuing a copytier in search of the Heart of Gene. She's not sure why exactly that came to mind, considering that adventure dwindled to the point of their target disappearing into obscurity, possibly into a doomed timeline... Perhaps it's an omen of what's to come.
"...Guys, I got a bad feeling about this. Gene might be in great danger. We have to let everyone know about this. We have to figure out what's happening here. This is more important than pursuing a simple timeloop. ➜"

There was something familiar brewing from all this, but Kat can't quite put her finger on it.
"Ditto on the Charles thing. This is way too fancy and not immediately universe ending. But I think I'm feeling some bad vibes on this..." "I'm feeling something familiar, too...I just can't seem to tell what it is though. I hope this isn't too worrying...Especially with our guest..."
Niki finishes typing some things on her phone. "...guys. Katie messaged me. This might be the work of the pawns' current enemy. The Scourge. ➜" She uncaptchas an icicle, making sure to handle it with her shirt and not her bare hands. "I need to go pick up Katie from Derse in Session P. I'll be right back. Can I use something around here as an anchor to return to? Preferably something removable. ➜"

"I think I got one."
Kat floats on over to the captain's chair and taps on one of the arms. Something small pops out from the place she taps, which she promptly takes out. She floats on back to give it to Niki. It looks like an SD card, but a lot more...chrome polished.
"It just has some old files that aren't really that important. I kept it in storage for prosperity's sake."
Elsey looks to Fannie as she asks who Charles was.
"...He's the idiot that set into motion the events that caused Ka-....The Witch of Ink and Roses' death. He's caused a lot more damage than just that even in the past, so he's usually to blame for anything catastrophic happening on our end."
Niki accepts the storage chip and puts it away for later. She'll need it to return to the ship easily. "Thanks. I'll be back sooner or later. ➜" She steps to a relatively unoccupied open area and begins focusing her time powers upon the icicle. She is surrounded by a sphere of numbers... And then once obscured, disappears, leaving the icicle behind. The tip breaks slightly upon hitting the ground, slick from slight melting.

The scourge... Seth isn't sure exactly who that is, but he has a strong feeling that it was the figure from his nightmare. The one that tried to attack him. Thank goodness bad dreams have nonlethal results... usually. Seth checks the message board with his wristtop. There's quite a few unread messages. Three things stood out to him: -the scourge was the Raz of Thoren's timeline -Micha is confirmed dead forever -the specific version of his late father, that he had doublehandedly saved from erasure... could not escape such a fate on his own.
Seth is somewhat overwhelmed by this. He's not only lost a friend, but also a family member.
"...I, need to sit down." Seth tries to find a place to sit down.
"Too much is happening too fast."
Seth winds up sitting down on a cream colored couch. He lays his head down on the armrest and closes his eyes.
This couch was not here just a moment ago.
Honestly, Seth could care less. He just wants to get some relief from everything that's been happening lately.
He wants to go home.
Silent tears streak down from his eyes as he tries to rest upon the mysterious sofa.
"...dream bubble? Covering... the entire universe? Is that even possible? What even is a dream bubble?" Fannie seems quite confused. She looks over at the fallen heir upon the cream sofa not too far away. From what she's seen just today, he has really gone through a lot. She can only wish him better days ahead...
"...anything? Oh my..." Fannie ponders the possibilities. She closes her eyes and imagines she's wearing a beautiful dress. Sure enough, upon opening her eyes, she appears to be wearing an adorable purple dress with many petticoats underneath. A surge of joy goes through her as she jumps up and down, grinning from ear to ear. "It worked! It really worked! This is amazing! Just imagine the problems we could solve with this!"

"the bubbles can show you what you want, but at the end of the night, none of it will remain... nothing at all..." Seth sniffles between sulking. "Don't build your miracles on the wings of a dream. It'll all burn at the waking light of the sun..."
