There's a little tug on my line. Ripples in the water.

"Hey! I got a nibble. You got anything?"

"Nope," says Dej.

We float there for a bit. No more nibbles.

"How would you feel about changing the radio station?" asks Dej. "I've had about all I can take of this of this Kreutzu Bash."

"I thought you liked Kreutzu Bash."

"In small doses I can. But I can't take it no more. Probably scaring away the Frimjabs and the Sweet Burkes. And the subsonics are bound to call up a Urgh Monster from the bottom and swallow us whole."

"If you are so concerned, then yes, sure, go ahead and change the channel."

"Well that sounds like a distress call, now don't it?"

"Sure does. Metadata says it's a bit of a ways off. Quite a bit of a ways off," said Dej.

"Doesn't matter," I said. "We are obligated to respond. Old rule."

"Milton, you don't quite get it. I mean it's---"

"DOESN'T MATTER. I took an oath. C'mon. Start rowing!"

And as soon as we dipped our oars in is when we got capsized by the Urgh Monster.

Captain Harrington here of the multi-purpose cargo vessel Madness Seeks out a Lover, putting out a distress call to any ships in the area. REPEAT, THIS IS THE MPV MADNESS SEEKS OUT A LOVER, PUTTING OUT A DISTRESS CALL TO ANY SHIPS IN THE AREA.

We are currently adrift, following an engagement with a swarm of sentient squalls. Both engines lost. Altitude Attitude is healthy, generators are working, and we can steer a bit, but we are currently on the glide REPEAT ON THE GLIDE with no engine power.

Current location coordinates updated in real time piggybacked to this transmission on the EM band.

Repeat. Captain Harrington here of the multi-purpose cargo vessel Madness Seeks out a Lover....

Ah, the stupid log is all messed up! Olli wrote our names on each page… wrong, of course. I do apologize, it will be all messed up for a while.

These people are driving me off the walls! I may be captain, but sometimes I just need a break… everyone else gets vacations, I can’t. It’s how it is, and how it will be, but it’s not fair. Oh well, I love my crew, even if we’re a mess. Till next time, Z
