    "I think me and Adagris should share a room" Katrina said with a smile
    "Of course, we have many more sleeping quarters, i think we have about 9 spare, so if anypony feels the need to sleep on their own then that can happen" Ferrum looked towards Adagris and notices somthing odd, as if she was uncomfortable, he knew that he should address this now since it could cause more drama then there already has been today and in the 5 minutes he has been awake, there has been 2 angry ponys because of an accident, 2 new ponys joining the adventure, 2 ponys and a zebra confused about whats going on and that leaves Ferrum to be the person calming down everything... how did this happen?
    "I believe that we shall be leaving soon so if somepony would like to escort Kat and Adagris to their quarters that would be grand"
    He has to try to keep the group together if we are going to get through this quest successfully.

    "I'll oblige. Need to get back below decks anyhow." Said Saltwind, gesturing for Adragis and Katrina to follow him. As they disappeared below decks, Adragis cast a worried glance in the direction of the group, evidently upset about something. However, the only pony who could see this was Katrina, as the rest were talking among themselves again.

    Marr opened her mouth, then closed it. It was best not to dwell on what had happened, angry as she was, so for the time being she would stay in the same room as Shyss, despite the risks. "Well, everything is nicely set up. We'd better get ready for the voyage ahead."

    As Kat and Adagris walked towards the quarters with Saltwind, she noticed a look on Adagris's face, unsure whether it was anxiety or just sheer uncomfortableness.
    "These shall be your sleeping quarters girls" Saltwind evidently wasnt happy with the drama that happened on the deck. As they walked in, they saw it was a rather simple room, it wasnt that big, but that wasnt expected. There lay 2 beds parallel to eachother and a wardrobe and a set of draws at the end of the bed. Katrina sat on the bed and was surprised at how comfortable it was.
    "You coming to sit down? We have a long few days ahead of us."

    "...OK." Adragis was beginning to have second thoughts about the entire affair. If anyone on the boat found out what she did, they'd probably lock her up. However, she brightened up when she remembered she'd kept the secret from Marr for months, and Marr visited her house as if it was her favourite cafe. Feeling a little more optimistic, she noticed Saltwind had gone, and soon afterwards his voice rang out, shouting "WE ARE LEAVING IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES. NOBODY GET OFF THE BOAT OR YOU WILL BE LEFT BEHIND."
    Adragis felt considerably cheered up. They were off soon! "Hey, Kat, what're you going to do once we get to Arcadia, other than find out about this 'Orb' thing?"

    "To be perfectly honest, I have no idea, im just going to stick around and wait to be told to do somthing, it just seems like the easier option. Anyway we have this to occupy us for a bit." It was a rather creative device which runs off unicorn magic, it would have been made out of electricity, but she dousent know how to work it properly so she sticks to magic. Once powered it splayed a picture image across the walls of the quarters. This image showed a series of random pictures and a person had to take it it turns to find a specific object.
    "3D Picturika, I used to play it in my spare time back in canterlot and its still working, rather ingenious dont you think." Kat pressed a button on the side and the contraption whirred. The projection stopped and started again and the walls seem to be painted with different pictures, randomising it every time.

    "Never played that before. Then again, you'll have time to teach me later. But still, come on, you have to do SOMETHING in Arcadia. What do you like? Shopping?" Adragis was intrigued by the little box, but she had several days to find out about it, so she could take things at a stride.

    Meanwhile, on deck, Marr was blinking heavily, her ears ringing after Saltwind had yelled right behind her. Suddenly, the main crew of the ship appeared from various doors and ropes, including a dragon, a griffon, and an honest-to-Azhamoth Minotaur, along with a bunch of assorted ponies. The crew began unfurling sails, picking up the gangplank, and doing several other ship-related tasks. "Come on, everyone," said Marr, motioning below deck, "we should get out of the way."

    Shyss got to up to her hooves, "That might be a good idea," she said calmly. She made her way towards the door leading below decks, as she approached the door flung open as another crew member burst onto the deck. Ignoring him, Shyss caught the door and held it open for the others to pass through before her.

    "That was unexpected" Ferrum said. obviously the crew for this ship had no consideration for others but he had to let that pass him since they are taking them to Arcadia. as they reach their quarters they see a light coming out of Kat and Adagris room.
    "whats happening in there? im going to check it out." its obvious that nothing bad would have happened in there but it is always a good idea to check it out anyway. as they approach the door they hear Adagris talking.
    "you have to do SOMETHING in Arcadia. What do you like? Shopping?" Adagris said, trying to find out what the plan is when we hit arcadia.
    "
    i like painting, but i don't think that will help the quest in any way, i can be creative as you can see" Kat pointed towards the contraption that lay on the floor and Adagris nodded in agreement.
    "
    i suppose i could build something that could help oobtain or store helpful information i suppose, but im no good with electricity." this was correct, electricity stumps her quite often, she had tried to learn it many times but she just cant get the hang of it. She hasn't fully met Marr yet so she doesn't know that her and Marr share the same type of interest.

    Marr, who had been following Ferrum after he drew attention to the light in the room, smiled and opened the door, much to the surprise of the occupants. "Speak of the devil," said Adragis, "I was about to tell her about my friend the mechanical genius. Marr, by the way, is a mechanic, Kat. She can probably help." Marr, rather pleased by being termed a genius, stepped into the room. "Yes, and may I say that your portable projection device is a work of art. Beautiful. Now, I hear you need a method of recording or transmitting information?"

    "REALLY!" Kat was so exited that there is somepony that can teach her tow to use electricity and more to the point, able to give her a point in tbe quest, then she looked around and everypony was looking at her.
    "I- i mean t-that would be helpful" all of a sudden feeling the pressure of people watch her celebrate awkwardly

    "Great to see you're enthusiastic. I'll talk to you about it later, unless Adragis doesn't mind sitting in?" Adragis shook her head. "Great, we'll start in a few minutes. Before then, I'll just nip into my room and fetch a few things. 'Kay?"

    "Yeah sure, we can work on the voice transmitter, get it done early so we can test it" Marr Leaves the room and Ferrum looks at Kat
    "Ive never seen you so enthusiastic to do anything" Ferrum was unsure why, it was rare Ferrum couldn't do something, and even if he couldn't, he knows he can easily live without it.

    Marr walked into her room and picked up her bag. Everything she needed was in it. She smiled at Kat's enthusiasm, as it was nice to see another creative pony.
    Walking back into the room, Marr laid the bag onto a bed and gave Kat a wink. "Let's see what we can make of your ideas."

    "Lets go" Kat was extremely thankful that Marr could take time out to teach her about electricity. thankfully Kat dousent get sea sick which means that she can simply concentrate on what Marr is going to be teaching her.

    Shyss smiled, glad that the tension of the earlier events had dissipated, she knew Marr was going to be awhile teaching Kat. So she left the ponies to it and crossed the hall to her quarters. The desk in her room was covered in documents, they all looked like patents and schematics for Marr's various creations, they all seemed to be laid it in a certain order. Not wanting to ruin Marr's plans, Shyss set her self down on her cot.
    She decided it was now the right time to document the first few events of the trip so far, starting from her arrival on The Florentine. Shyss reached out for her unicorn magic and set it on a course through her body to the very tip of her alicorn horn. She knew her spell was more complex that what her horn was usually capable of, but she needed to practice with her unicorn magic.
    To most unicorns, unbuckling saddlebags and then pulling out a certain three items using magic would be a simple task. But Shyss wasn't like most unicorns, she had felt the taint of the Rift, it's magics had burned a hole in her unicorn powers, a hole that would never be filled, even if she was able to liberate herself from the Rifts taint.
    She was now fully focused on her task, and so she released her magic. Before her she could see her saddlebags float up from below the cot where the lay, the buckle on the leftmost bag slowly undid itself, and then the bag's flap flipped open. A leather bound book soon drifted out into the air, followed by a quill and a small clay pot, they all landed neatly beside Shyss on the bed, as the bags floated slowly back down to the ground.
    Shyss smiled, she wasn't expecting to get two out of three of the items right. She took hold of her magic once more and swapped the clay pot of healing balm with the small brass inkwell she had brought with her. That spell was much easier that the first. Shyss then used her magic to open the book, and start writing her log. She found writing with magic to be quite easy, but that may have been because she was used to doing such a thing. Shyss smiled again, enjoying the tranquility of her task.

    Patient walked to where Shyss was he wanted to cheek up on her and see how she was as he came to her "Hi so how are you after that little event back there" he asked her he was worried about her as he always had heard strange stories about Rift when he was a little one.

    Shyss looked up from the entry she was writing in the log book. What event was he talking about? Her horn going haywire? Marr's anger? Or maybe the new arrivals? Who seemed a bit off to Shyss for some reason she couldn't quite place. She guessed it most likely wasn't the latter meaning it was one of the first two.
    "I'm fine, I don't know what came over Marr though." She said, "Sorry if any of that scared you, things have been known to get weird-slash-exciting around me. Trust my horn to be the thing that ultimately livens up the day... By getting me wet... Again." Shyss sighed once more and then returned to her writing.

    Patient sigh and sat down "I understand I am use to scary thing during my time with my mother and father I learn to just face what ever is coming to me but I am more worried about you I have heard stories about Rift strange ones some which I think aren't even true do you mind telling me if these stories are true of what my mother told it okay if you don't want to tell me" he asked her.

    Kat, seemingly glad that everypony has left her and Marr alone so that she could work on her electricity, looked at a weird looking stone, she thought it was a rune, but wasn't completely sure.

    "Whats that stone there?"

    Without looking up from her writing, Shyss replied, "I can tell you more things about the Rift than your parents could even dream about knowing, and chances are that all the scary stories you have heard are watered down, friendlier embellishments of the truth." Shyss looked up and gave patient a twisted smile, "So what do you wish to know?"
