|Kaelyn||It's fishing time! Kinda, well yah definately fishing time. Kae isn't seen well, at least not right now. Then a tri-barbed spear tip can be seen, with a large fish on the end of it, then the haft and the slender hand holding it can be seen climbing out of Kae's natural swimming pool or pond or whatever you want to call it. Seems she decided to get some of the fish out of it,a s there is now a large dutch oven on a fire, it's got hot greese in it, and well there's a small pile of fish next to it.|
|Ironface Jones||It is a good day for exploring and Ironface Jones is out and about doing just that. The mighty tribal has chosen this day to explore Kaelyn's settlement so that he can be familiar with the home of the person he's fought alongside in the past. His arrival is heralded by the mighty stomping of his power armor, almost enough to shake the earth. When he nears the fishing hole and sees the fishing spear his eyes follow it back to Kaelyn. Through the speaker on his helmet the following words can be heard: "Greetings, friend. It is I, Ironface Jones. I am here exploring. Would you like help fishing?"|
|Kaelyn||Kae is well, she's in a bikini of all things, the dark skinned woman pausing as she stares at the armor with those crimson red eyes of hers... She then glances to the fish ont he spear and the fish on in the gazeebo area and shrugs "If you like. I'm not using bait and tackle as this is a swimming pool, though it's filled by our aquaponics system.. We have an overabundance of fish in it, so I thought I'd get a few out.." She says with a smile.. "YOu're more than welcome to jump in and spear some out, careful, at the upper end it's like over 12 feet deep..." She says, talking of the rather large, olympic-sized pond/swimming pool, with nicely rocked edges and whatnot...
Kae makes her way over to the prep place, and sets about now cleaning the fish, carefully putting the guts and bits she's throwing away in a large bucket. "Sooo how do ya like your fish battered? I can do a crispy light puffy batter, or roll it in cornmeal if you like." She adds with a big grin. Her little area in the desert really is not just a regular oasis, but probably a veritable desert paradice at this point. Also a few people, much like her can be seen milling about here and there... Seems she's picked up settlers, a few other women, with tapered ears, though many not as long or sharp as hers... Still there's a few here and there.
|Ironface Jones||"I shall help you with your fish problem," Ironface says as the back of his armor opens up so that he can step out of it, revealing that he's wearing a form fitting body suit that shows off his musculature. He wades into the water, not bothering to grab a spear or anything. He opens his big hands wide, though, ready to grab some fishes. "I very much like your settlement. I think it is a good place for you and your people." Once he's up to his waste and looking for fish to snatch he says, "I would like puffy batter, please. I think puffy would taste better.|
|Kaelyn||Kae tilts her head and laughs "As you wish.. As soon as she gets the fish filleted, and splits those fillets in half, she grabs some home made flour, a few eggs, and yes, home made beer too... Also salt, and some pepper as well, and lastly some lemon goes into the batter and she whips the stuff up with a whisk... "Want fried potatoes, or fried taro?" She asks curiously as she starts dropping the fillets in the batter...
The odd woman holds up one of each of the root veggies, as a holo-projection of CORA pops up.. "You're like gonna put on an apron before you start frying stuff right? I don't care how good your healing is, grease burns hurt..."
Kae peers at CORA and tilts her head "Duuuhhhh...." As she says that, a red-headed woman with darker skin, and of course pointy ears wanders up and asks "Bout to make dinner?" She says and Kae nods "Gonna help?" The woman smirks and nods, then takes both the root veggies from her and starts preparing both...
Kae tilts her head and laughs "Ok, it's both then!" It's not long before several other females are around, and all setting about getting food prepped. One person actually goes into one of the greenhouses and returns with cabbages and carrots, and they begin making a slaw, while the redhead is peeling potatoes and taro roots alike, cutting them into fries, and making sure each type of veggie gets its own large bowl....
Kae beams and looks over at Ironface "Ya know, since folks moved in here, it's been like a lot easier to get stuff done."
|Ironface Jones||"I think either would be fine, friend," Ironface says with regards to the offer of potatoes or taro, looking up from his fishing momentarily. Then he returns his attention to the task at hand, still trying to be helpful. As a fish swims past his hands snap closed around it and the large man proceeds to carry it out of the water. It's not a particularly large specimen, but he eyes it an nods his head approvingly. At Kaelyn's smile Ironface nods his head again and tells the woman, "I think that it is good that you have people to help you. I think that you are thriving together."|
|Kaelyn||Kae nods slowly, and is now soon cleaning another fish that Ironface brought out as she adds with a grin "Go for the biggest ones you can, many are in deeper water... Don't mind some fish in this pond, it's just that we need to thin a few out." She says with a smirk... As soon as she gets the fish filleted and dropped into the batter she tests the now hot grease with a little dribble of batter and with a nod starts dropping in the fillets one at a time, making sure to fine a clear spot of grease.
As soon as the fillets float,s he flips them over, waits for a few counts then starts scooping the fish out one at a time and setting them in a large metal basket to drip the excess grease out. After she finishes one dutch oven full of fish, she cleans the grease as it were with potatoes then taro root, and then back in with the fish, alternating between protein and veggies...
"Ever had fish this way? Beer battered?" Asks now CORA who's acting like she's kicking her feet in the pool, nevermind that well, the holograms feet really dissapears below the water line and does no disturbing of water or fish...
|Ironface Jones||"I shall attempt to bring up the biggest fish!" Ironface declares, puffing out his chest as he heads back into the water. "I have yet to have beer fish, but I think they will be delicious because I think beer and fish both taste good." Then he dives straight into the water with no hesistation. He's under for quite some time, apparently the massive man has pretty good lung capacity. When he rises up from the water he has quite the large fish stabbed through with a wakizashi. Swimming back to the edge of the pond he carries the fish over to where they're being filleted and lets it slide off of his weapon. After wiping the blade clean on his sleeve he replaces it in it's sheathe and speaks, "I think it is fun to hunt your fish. I shall bring you meat when next I hunt."|
|Kaelyn||Kae tilts her head and laughs "If you wish... Also we grow more food than we can really eat, so if you need vegetables or the like, feel free to come by and ask... If we can spare it you can have it." She says, motioning to the two very large green houses... She then walks over to a dinner bell, while another settelment woman begins cleaning the next fish, the fillets going into the batter. Kae then rings the dinner bell and CORA calls out over the PA "Sups up!" There's not really many living at the settlement, but they all kind of looka t Ironface and Kae waves him over "C'mon!" She calls out, as the redhead can be seen finishing off the last batches of food while nibbling on a plate she'd allready put together for her self.|
|Ironface Jones||"Thank you. I shall eat your vegetables," the big man states plainly. As Kaelyn walks to the dinner bell he follows behind her, looking carefully at the people that approach when summoned. In an attempt at being friendly he greets them, "I am Ironface Jones of the El Dorado Tribe. Son of Snake Puncher Jones and Spears Badly McCoy of the Sand Lizard Clan." It can't hurt to be polite, after all.|
|Kaelyn||It's like a celtic or Welsh festival of names here, as many of the women introduce them selves. Llywwel being one of them (pronouced Klehwehl), and of course the sheer number of consonates to vowels is rather hard to pronounce at points. Another woman goes by Dafyda, another Illyra, another's name is not really pronounceable less you've tried it a few times... They all introduce them selves in tern, the red head putting a plate together for Ironface. This having the home made slaw, complete with a poppyseed like dressing on it, very light and all. There's of course taro chips and potatoe chips and lots of fish... With the fish is tartar sauce and malt vinegar...
Kae gets her self a like plate, now helping her self to some of the fruit on one in one of the giant fruit bowls located on the outside dining table... A green-headed woman wander in with a several pitchers of tea and probably a locally made fruit punch, and of course a dark beer... And several glasses to boot... The largest put in front of Ironface.
|Ironface Jones||"It pleases me to meet you," Ironface tells each woman in turn after saying their name. Some take several attempts, but the big guy is nothing if not determined. As his plate is brought to him he nods and says, "Thank you. I shall enjoy eating your fish." He tries each type of food separately, nodding his head approvingly at everything. "I think that I like all of this food. I shall bring much meat in thanks." When the beer is placed in front of him the mighty tribal gives thanks and takes a drink, "This is good beer." More of it goes down his gullet. "I think I like this place very much. If you ever need anything please call upon me to assist you."|
