I can find my way around

CHARACTERS: Rory [OPEN TO ALL]
LOCATION: Anywhere!
WARNINGS: nada
SUMMARY: Rory is taking a break from the MedBay and is doing a bit of exploring on his own


He had taken to spending a lot of his time in the MedBay reading up on the technology at hand and looking after those few who came in. It was strange how he would look up and realize he'd been in the same position for a day or more. True, he'd gotten used to this plastic body, but he still thought like human Rory and worried a bit at how easy it was for him to just be. Today he wasn't going to worry.

Stepping out of the MedBay he headed in a random direction and decided to explore the ship a bit. He wasn't as adventurous as the Doctor or Amy, but there was still a little boy inside him pointing out that he was on a REAL spaceship and all he'd been doing was reading. Giving into that voice he had decided to give in and go for a walk.

Rey did plenty of wandering. Social mingling was never really her thing, unless if it seemed necessary.

Sleep was oftentimes painful, like someone pushing down on her chest. Last night it seemed to happen more so than usual.

So she was out and about now, on a little stroll through the hallways of the ship. Though for aforementioned reasons, she hadn't really been thinking or paying much attention to where she was going. That was, before turning around the corner and finding herself barely evading bumping into a like-minded wanderer she didn't recognize.

...oh.

"Yeah, I'm fine, actually." Rey paused to stare at him some. She didn't recognize this person, and she definitely knew she'd never talked to him before. "Are you?"

It just seemed like the kind of thing someone would say.

She wasn't good with faces, and this particular one didn't help a single bit. One of the many reasons why she just stayed out of groups in general. Sometimes it was... disorienting.

The woman just stared at his hand for a moment, before making the instinctive decision to take it. And shake. Shaking, of course, was part of this whole deal. "...Rey."

Rey No-last-name.

"Exploring." The word came like an echo, rolling out. "So am I."

When she didn't have a habitable room to return to, having a crispy bed and all, just about the only logical thing to do in Rey's illogical logic was to wander aimlessly. Perhaps eventually she would find some sort of direction.

That was the intent, anyway.

Rey shook her head. "No. I've been here a couple months, actually. I've just been trying to get the bearings of my surroundings, and there's been a lot of ground to cover."

It was a fairly large ship, and she preferred seeing things for herself rather than taking someone else's word for it, or relying on a map.

"I wouldn't know." At times, Rey had hoped that walking around this much would eventually jog her memory. Or, rather, she hoped that it would eventually jog something. Most of the time, it wasn't so much as memories, but mere feelings that came into play. Impossible, hard-to-describe things. "You get used to it. The winding paths. The lack of sense. I'd think so, at least."

"A cheat? What do you mean by that?" And where could she get one of those?

And there was that question again. Rey hated it. She'd been here for a couple months, and her mind was still a foggy mess after everything, trying to piece it all together.

"I can't say. I guess I've been numb to it all since I arrived." Shock, or something like that. If it could even be called that.

Rey tilted her head. "Photographic memory?"

Sounded familiar, since she was the same way -- or similar, at least. She had no need for maps around here. Every corridor she wandered down had a uniqueness to it, despite its similarities to the many other winding turns around here.

"I've talked to a few. Not about that, though. Didn't seem important." She really didn't see anything wrong with it. It wasn't like she was hurting anyone, or herself, because of it.

She stared at him, silent for a moment in vague curiosity. Something like that...

Okay.

With any luck, Rey hadn't quite reached the point of a breakdown. Hell, she'd regarded waking up with no memory of what happened prior as nothing more than a minor inconvenience at this point.

"I am talking to someone." Wait, it really didn't help that she took things pretty literally. The underlining tone of what he really meant occurred as a simple afterthought, then she shook her head. "No, not like that. I know. I'll be fine." Pause. "Thanks."

"I'm not overwhelmed. I've had time to get over it." Strange as it all was to her, Rey had no idea what a sense of normalcy was supposed to be. So who was she to judge?

Still, the eerie calmness and casual retort -- considering the circumstances -- felt odd, even to her. But she kept straight, her stance tall. Like a call to attention.
