    RP - A moment in the gardens

    Basilica InteriorSet upon a grass-covered plateau on the planet Oris sits the Amarr Legio Basilica. The sight that greets each pilot when they first enter the Basilica grounds is a large granite archway fifty feet tall, under which is draped a massive golden spun-silk banner bearing the Amarrian double-bow. Before the entrance is a guarded security checkpoint, where all weapons must be turned in before entering. Just behind this lies a rack of inactive holo drones, which facilitate capsuleers who are unable to be present in person. Passing through the archway leads the pilot into a high vaulted passage, with various banners bearing the sigils of Amarrian heros hung between alcoves along the way. Below these stand statues honoring every ruler in the Emipre's long history, the last statue being dedicate to the current Empress, Jamyl I. After about fifty yards the passageway opens into the Amarr Legio Basilica itself. Gilded pillars reach from the marble floor to the ceiling, supporting a huge domed roof covered in frescos of Scriptural stories. Around the entire work of art is a wreath of Holy Scripture in gold filigree, the lines selected to correspond with the stories depicted.The gaps between the pillars are connected with smaller archways creating quiet, more private alcoves. These archways are topped by magnificent stained glass windows depicting ancient saints and warriors of the faith. Colored light streams upon the center of the main arena from them.The nave is a circular, open public space, with several ornate tables (complete with comfortable seating) and a large fountain. Wherever a person stands their eye is drawn to the apse at the very far end of the Basilica. Behind a few rows of pews and a carved cherry wood railing is a large stone altar, simple in adornment except for two large golden braziers with gentle incense smoke rising from them. Behind the altar is a decorated stone pedistal atop of which stands a sixty-foot tall statue of a praying angel, gazing down upon the open space. Two large open doors stand on either side of the Basilica, the left leading to a cloister with a garden where a small non-alcoholic refreshment bar stands. A large pool of water flanked by tall trees lies in the center of the gardens and stretches a hundred meters long. The right door in the nave leads to the dormitory wing, which contains room, board and offices for residents, staff and guests, as well as a small adjoining chapel.

    [ 2014.02.24 03:04:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leaves her dormitory room carrying a blanket and a gardening bag and finds a place in the gardens to kneel and begins to weed.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:06:13 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote enters the Basilica in blue robes ( ) with Heilge behind her, walking along the entrance, making the usual gesture of observance as she enters the holy site
    [ 2014.02.24 03:07:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns slightly to herself as she tries to pull a thistle in the gardens outside and remembers to put her gardening gloves on after licking her thumb from the prick.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:07:24 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote follows along her Mistress in a simple white robe, making the same gesture, though kneeling, as befits her station
    [ 2014.02.24 03:10:33 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote makes her way to the altar and kneels, saying a prayer. Heilge prostrates herself as Erin prays
    [ 2014.02.24 03:11:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote grunts slightly as she tugs out an errant onion plant.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:14:31 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote stands and frowns. "Which way to the dorms, I wonder." she idly asks herself. She hums and sets off in the correct direction and finds a staff member, asking for Luna's room
    [ 2014.02.24 03:14:39 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote trots along with her Holder
    [ 2014.02.24 03:14:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notes the staff member will tell Erin that Luna is in the gardens at this time of day.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:16:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs and rests back on her knees, pausing in her efforts.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:17:06 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote nods and thanks them and turns around to walk to the gardens.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:18:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote brushes her brow and frowns, remembering her gloves were dirty.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:20:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs removing her gloves and gets some moist towellettes or whatever they are called now out of her gardening bag.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:20:13 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote steps into the gardens and half smiles when she sees Luna. She walks over. "Lunarisse?"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:20:28 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote bows to Luna once her Mistress says the woman's name
    [ 2014.02.24 03:20:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks in surprise and stands, dusting herself off and offers a slight smile "Erin!" before she had a chance to clean off her face.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:21:58 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote goves over "Madam, if you will allow me?" She says softly, and will wipe Luna's face off with the hem of her sleeve if Luna does not stop her
    [ 2014.02.24 03:22:32 ] Erin Savonarola > "Hello, sweetie."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:22:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blushes as she remembers her condition and waves Heilge off as she dabs at her face with the towellettes.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:23:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Err.. this is a surprise Erin. What brings you to Oris?"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:23:57 ] Erin Savonarola > "You, my dear." She says plainly
    [ 2014.02.24 03:24:09 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote takes a respectful step back
    [ 2014.02.24 03:25:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks again in surprise and glances about "Ummmm..... there's a nice bench over there. Would you like a seat?"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:26:04 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote glances over and then at the flower bed. "I'll work with you a bit and we can talk, hmm?" She glances to Heilge and then to her hands and then to Luna's hands
    [ 2014.02.24 03:26:15 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote gets the hint and goes to find some gloves
    [ 2014.02.24 03:27:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote murmers "thank you Erin.... ummm... I am trying to clear this bed out of some weeds that are choking the irises."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:27:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs "It's been a while since I've been here to tend my two beds."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:27:32 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote smiles and kneels down on the blanket
    [ 2014.02.24 03:27:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote kneels back down as well and tugs her gloves back on.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:28:13 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote comes back with the gloves and hands them to Erin.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:30:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote bends forward and begins to weed again "I trust your trip was uneventful Erin?"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:32:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs "mine certainly wasn't"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:32:22 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote puts them on. "Of course. Just a quick trip in that Minmatar shuttle they handed out." She smirks. "I heard what happened, dear." She says, looking at the flowers, trying to find an obvious weed as she's never done this before
    [ 2014.02.24 03:33:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notes the irises are green with long flat bladed shoots. it is still too early for flowers. Anything else will look a bit scraggly or grubby.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:34:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs "I shouldn't be a pilot."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:34:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "or responsible for anyone."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:35:13 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote grabs a prickly leaf and pulls it out. Just the leaf comes and she frowns and this time grabs it better and pulls the whole weed out
    [ 2014.02.24 03:35:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tugs at a crabweed with multiple stringy leaves and annoying roots that break off before pulling the plant out.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:35:55 ] Erin Savonarola > "You were attacked by pirates." she says simply
    [ 2014.02.24 03:36:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I was careless. I should have fitted the ship better and not been in such a rush to get rid of the passengers."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:36:40 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote looks confused as to what she's supposed to be doing, so pours two glasses ov lemonade and will have them ready
    [ 2014.02.24 03:37:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns "it must have been such an unpleasant trip for them and I was a poor host to boot."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:37:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote yanks out a crabweed but leaves all the roots because she tugged too hard.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:38:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I have decided to request that our more combat minded pilots in the Society escort me when I have passengersin the future."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:39:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote continues to weed as she talks.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:39:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods with approval at Erin, noticing Erin pulled out a thistle.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:40:16 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote looks over at Luna as a frown pulls at the corner of her lips and nods. Sometimes it's just better to listen. She pulls out another prickly looking thing
    [ 2014.02.24 03:41:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs "I was such a pill... and I wasn't even thinking how wonderful it was what I was supposed to be doing.. moving new colonists to extend the reach of the Faithful."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:41:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think as a capsuleer we get jaded and forget what a gift we have...."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:41:55 ] Erin Savonarola > "I think you're right" she says gently
    [ 2014.02.24 03:43:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs "right now I just don't trust myself with people... I've screwed up too much. Plants can grow back from most any abuse..."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:43:37 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote sighs softly. "Lunarisse, we all make mistakes. I don't think that anyone is blaming you for what happened, anyone but yourself."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:44:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly indicating she heard Erin's comment as she continues to tug at crabgrass.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:45:43 ] Erin Savonarola > "They are in Paradise. Which, as I look at it, is a lot better than here."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:46:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote murmers "Yes, i tell myself that. My husband, bless his soul, however used to say,,,"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:46:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I want to go paradise, but not just yet."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:46:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote lets out a soft chuckle and rests back in her knees again.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:46:52 ] Erin Savonarola > "I think we all feel that." She smiles weakly
    [ 2014.02.24 03:47:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notices the lemonade finally and takes a glass from Heilge with a nod.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:47:44 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote smiles and bows her head
    [ 2014.02.24 03:49:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs "my counselor thinks I will be ready to go spaceside in a week I guess."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:49:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head "have you ever gone on retreats Erin?"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:50:38 ] Erin Savonarola > "From where I sit." She looks down and scowls at the dirt "You're doing everything right. You came here, to God, to seek His guidance, to attone for what happened. You've looked at the event and have looked for actions to prevent such an event from
    [ 2014.02.24 03:51:09 ] Erin Savonarola > happening in the future. You are a good person, Lunarisse."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:51:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her lemonade quietly.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:51:58 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote nods. "A few times, actually."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:52:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it does.. umm.. help I find to collect my thoughts.... and thank you Erin,,,"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:54:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances over at Heilege and then back to Erin "Heilge is looking well. You seem to treat your people well."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:54:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote finishes her lemonade.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:54:43 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote smiles and turns to Heilge
    [ 2014.02.24 03:55:07 ] Heilge Tratten > "Thank you, ma'am." she says, taking the empty glass. "More?"
    [ 2014.02.24 03:56:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote murmers "yes please" to Heilge and turns her attention back to Erin "the heat planetside seems to take more and more out of me the more I spend in space."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:56:22 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote trots off to pour another glass
    [ 2014.02.24 03:57:57 ] Erin Savonarola > "Then spend more time, planetside." She purses her lips. "I'll get you a house in Solfete. A few slaves to keep it.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:58:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches slightly "Ah... Nahyeen is my home and this is my home away from home.. but thank you Erin."
    [ 2014.02.24 03:58:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles softly as she resumes wedding.
    [ 2014.02.24 03:58:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *weeding
    [ 2014.02.24 04:01:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles "although I'd like to visit your city more.."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:01:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "do you have any gardens besides museums?"
    [ 2014.02.24 04:03:30 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote smiles. "Of course! There plenty of parks and greenways. Though, you're going to have to compete with the landscaping slaves to weed." she giggles. "I have a few places in the city centre and then a few more in the Gold District. I will have ...
    [ 2014.02.24 04:03:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly as she continues to weed.
    [ 2014.02.24 04:04:20 ] Erin Savonarola > one set aside for you." She smiles slyly. "Or, I could just find a room for you in Nova Carra."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:05:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'd be happy to have one set aside.... I work for my room and board here by tending my two plots when I am in Oris."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:05:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns as she glances at her weedy patch "and I've been too long in tending this one."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:05:58 ] Erin Savonarola > "Nova Carra, or your own apartments?"
    [ 2014.02.24 04:06:32 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote looks and finds another obvious weed and starts to pull it out
    [ 2014.02.24 04:07:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Nova Carra... I might be motivated to make sure it looks good then..."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:07:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles slightly "nothing large.. I do my gardening myself."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:08:57 ] Erin Savonarola > "Alright. I'll have a room set up.' She turns to Heilge.
    [ 2014.02.24 04:09:10 ] Heilge Tratten > "I'll make the arrangements now, Mistress, madam."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:09:26 ] Erin Savonarola > "Oh, hand me my data pad, dear."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:09:45 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote goes over to the bag and pulls out the datapad and hands it to Erin
    [ 2014.02.24 04:10:31 ] Erin Savonarola > "I'll show you. Galnet, galnet, Solfete, tourism board, gardens. Ah ha!" She shows the pad to Luna "Some of our gardens"
    [ 2014.02.24 04:10:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote kneels back up and peruses the datapad.
    [ 2014.02.24 04:10:53 ] Erin Savonarola > ( \)
    [ 2014.02.24 04:11:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote murmers "oh my goodness! I was so busy when I was last on Nova Cerra. I never noticed!"
    [ 2014.02.24 04:12:21 ] Erin Savonarola > "The first is actually in the Mishi quarter. The second is in City Centre just a short walk from Nova Carra. This" ( )
    [ 2014.02.24 04:14:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at the next with a slight smile.
    [ 2014.02.24 04:14:25 ] Erin Savonarola > "Is in the Gold District. Campo di Allando. Named after the first Conte di le Solfete."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:15:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods "an interesting range, from the very formal estate, to the secluded flower garden"
    [ 2014.02.24 04:15:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles slightly "I prefer the latter, I confess.... almost a riot of colors."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:16:30 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote nods. "You've been to the atrium in Nova Carra, right?"
    [ 2014.02.24 04:16:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "yes, Erin."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:18:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her had as she hears the bells calling to prayer ring.
    [ 2014.02.24 04:19:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh no! I lost track of time"
    [ 2014.02.24 04:19:04 ] Erin Savonarola > "Well, I'm happy to set aside a bit, a small flower bed for you to maintain and call your own."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:19:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles.
    [ 2014.02.24 04:19:35 ] Erin Savonarola > "oh?" she smiles. "Go pray child. Know that I, and many, many others pray for you."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:19:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "I would like that Erin" as she gets up and begins to pack her gardening bag "and.. thank you for your prayers too."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:20:37 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote motions to Heilge
    [ 2014.02.24 04:21:21 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote comes over with a box. "Chocolates, madam, from Culviers. The best chocolateers in Solfete."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:21:26 ] Erin Savonarola > "Enjoy."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:21:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods at Heilge "thank you Erin" as she curtseys "God Bless and good night"
    [ 2014.02.24 04:21:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote hurries off to get changed.
    [ 2014.02.24 04:22:28 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote stands and waits til Luna is gone to turn to Heilge. "This dirt. I do not like it."
    [ 2014.02.24 04:22:34 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote bursts out laughing
    [ 2014.02.24 04:35:28 ] Erin Savonarola > /emote departs with Heilge, making observance by the altar
    [ 2014.02.24 04:35:32 ] Heilge Tratten > /emote does likewise
