[He's had plenty of time to toy with this gizmo (all technical terms, thank you mental projection of Kay that's moved back into his brain now that it's not too painful because there's a real Kay again, shush), but still hasn't put himself on it for more than a brief response to Catelyn Stark.

For all his well-[founded?]-honed mistrust of open networks, it has chastened him that he could have found Jyn and Kay much more quickly if he'd used it from the start. For all the research he does, it's unignorable that he's wasting a huge amount of this powerful resource by relegating himself to observer, not participant.

…And there's one or two other imPorts he's learned about that… have caught his attention. He's wondering if he'll catch theirs.

So, network, hello: months after his arrival (albeit a good percent of them spent unconscious): Human. Male. Age hard to tell: either in his thirties-forties or face prematurely hollowed and lined. Hair: dark, cut as if by himself with a tool not meant for such use and no mirror. Eyes: several galaxies' worth. Shirt doesn't look like anything specific to those who wouldn't know the style, instantly recognizable as Corellian to those who would.

Then he smiles—in a way that seems entirely effortless, genuine, and engaged—and some of the agedness falls away. The eyes crinkle and sparkle. He seems approachable and warm. Even the haircut is transformed into seeming less unloved and more boyish. It gives this stranger the face of a friend.

His accent, when he speaks, sounds Hispanic to Earth American ears.]


I was wondering, if you're willing to share—

[on an open network, though that's not necessarily a good barometer of the network itself]

Are you still in the job you were assigned? Yes or no, how is it going for you?

I've read the introductory material on this. I'm wondering about personal experiences.

[He's tried to go beyond the official literature, including as much of the backlog as he could find or slice. Which is also why he doesn't repeat Godric's question (to which the answers were exceedingly helpful—and a few that sent a shiver up his spine. But pull it together, don't apply superstitious thought to the superstitious thoughts: that's what common cosmological models do).


As if in afterthought, and as if with self-conscious awkwardness, he adds]


…and hello. My name's Cassian.

[The video feed opens on a television set currently playing Nonah News. The lead reporters are just finishing up their segment and signing off to the Weather Man. Said Weather Man is a tall, blond man wearing a blue suit. Despite his smile, he looks deeply uncomfortable and nearly misses his mark to begin. Nearly.]

Good morning Nonah! I'm Andrew Pulaski and this is the Weather the Weather Corner! This next week is looking to be a sunny one, reaching highs of about 88 degrees. It's time to put away those winter clothes and break out the summer wear. [Even as he's pointing to the weather chart behind him, he keeps his eyes glued towards the camera-likely focused on reading the prompter.]

The lows are staying at a mild 70 degrees, giving us a lovely week to look forward to. As for the weekend, expect sunshine with no sign of showers in sight. Back to you in the news room!

[As soon as the weather segment ends the TV is shut off and the camera shifts around to face its owner, none other than the Weather Man himself. Andrew smiles a little awkwardly.]

Okay, so it's clear I didn't miss my calling as a Weather Man, but go easy on me. I've never been on TV before. [Pause.] At least not on purpose. But that's what I'm here for; I'm curious if any of you have any tips you can give me. But let me stop you before you say 'don't stare at the prompter the whole time'. I've heard that one loud and clear already.

And, just out of curiosity, how many of you have been assigned a job you're actually qualified for? I'm like ninety percent sure we're being trolled with these job assignments.

With help from everyone who responded, I've found the shooting range in De Chima. And, with some notable generosity thanks to the Major, have managed to get a weapon more suitable for this planet. But thanks to another suggestion, I've been curious about this whole .. paint ball and laser tag thing.

What I guess I'm asking is, would anyone be interested in either of those events? Apparently you need teams of varying numbers.

You know they'll give out certificates for whatever you want on the internet?
