You are condemned to die.

Given a choice:
What is your last meal?
What is the last thing you see?
Who is the last person you talk to? What do you say?

Waffles, fried eggs, toast and raspberry jam, cherry danish, a New York style pie with white sauce and chicken, Pad Thai, a big bowl of colconnan, rhubarb pie, lamb stew, clam chowder, soda bread, stuffed salmon, garlic whipped potatoes and for dessert: vanilla ice cream with hot fudge and rainbow jimmies. Then maybe a peanut butter and mayo sandwich, just because.

Sunrise over Central Park

My Da. I'd tell him I love him and that he's not allowed to mope around like he did after Mam died and if he writes a song about me it better not be sappy or I'll come back and haunt his arse.

A burst stomach strikes me as an especially painful way to die.

Hello again. I have been searching for you and your ship, but have had no luck.

1. There is a sort of sweet cake that I used to love as a child and can't find anywhere but my homeland. I think I would want to have that and a pot of tea.

2. There's a book I would like to re-read. It's an epic poem and I have it memorized, but it's always interested me. It would act as a comfort and a distraction.

3. I would tell the Brucolac not to wonder what has happened to me.
13th-Jun-2009 02:58 am (UTC)
Uther Doul, hello. I relate deeply to your first answer.

Have you actually been looking? That's a surprise.

Stewed turtle with ham, bak kut teh, tieguanyin.

Stars.

Nothing.
13th-Jun-2009 03:03 am (UTC)
I like those answers. Except the food part. Can those two dishes be described in Standard?
13th-Jun-2009 03:02 am (UTC)
1. Apple and honey. Just that.

2. Moonlight, and my brother.

3. I would tell him that I am sorry.
13th-Jun-2009 03:08 am (UTC)
Sorry for what?
13th-Jun-2009 03:28 am (UTC)
1. If it's really going to be my last meal, then I'm calling for a full-on old-fashioned Hawaiian luau. Pig, salmon, poi, plenty of booze, the whole thing. It's been years -- centuries, even, if I go by the calendar -- since I've been at one, and I think I might've been working there, that time. Also, I will then demand my executioners do some hula dancing.

2. Um. Hm. The insides of my eyelids, I guess? I'm not too proud to admit that I probably won't want to see the shot coming.

3. There're a few possible options, but they're all Nexus people, so I'd probably just put out a general call to the Nexus... and tell them to get me the fuck out of there!
13th-Jun-2009 03:36 am (UTC)
This reply got a chuckle out of him, just for the record.

I enjoy your honesty. Do you think the Nexus could manage that?
13th-Jun-2009 03:36 am (UTC)
Curry chicken roti, dhalpouri and pholourie.

Before I make my escape? My executioner's face.

No one. I wouldn't want anyone being held when I disappear.
13th-Jun-2009 03:48 am (UTC)
A confident answer. How can you be sure that you'd escape successfully?
13th-Jun-2009 03:53 am (UTC)
Ivy taps her fingers along the top of the device she uses for transmitting messages. She flips the top open to by pass the voice transmitter and begins texting her reply back.

1) No meal is complete for me without coffee. A steak (beef) grilled served with mashed potatoes and salted green beans.
2) Probably my killers if I had the chance.
3a) The person I value above others.
3b) I would say I'm sorry and that I wished things had gone differently.


Now with her other hand she gropes around for her coffee to sip on.
13th-Jun-2009 04:14 am (UTC)
Generic answers.

Your killers, plural? Who is the person you value above others?
13th-Jun-2009 03:59 am (UTC)
My last meal would be spaghetti bolognaise followed by banana cake. The last thing I'd see would be Central Park in Spring. The last person would be my bestfriend Blake and I would tell him that I love him and it's always been him.
13th-Jun-2009 04:15 am (UTC)
Central Park has been mentioned twice now. Where is it? Describe it to me.
13th-Jun-2009 04:01 am (UTC)
o Blowfish sushi and a jar of garlic & jalapeno stuffed olives.
o A war ending.
o My brother. "I'm not dead. Yet."
13th-Jun-2009 04:17 am (UTC)
That's a cruel thing to say to someone just before you die, isn't it?

Not that this means he didn't chuckle, or anything.
13th-Jun-2009 11:09 am (UTC)
Ah, you are the one Doul has distracted himself with. Your timing is poor. Or ours is.

Having died already, I have no comfort for you, but I do have an idea. Doul is fond of poetry. Give him a poem to find you by, as well as coordinates. Something that resonates in your mind.

Do you know the name Luke Skywalker?
13th-Jun-2009 03:45 pm (UTC)
Poetry. I'll need to think about that.

No, I don't know that name. Should I? Who are you?
13th-Jun-2009 01:09 pm (UTC)
My last meal would be coffee, warm and just a little bit sweet. Maybe a cannoli.

Just colors. Something vibrant or something sepia and yellow and beige. I don't mind, all I want at the end is colors.

A friend of mine. I'd say, "Escape plan A, please. And if that doesn't work, let's run down the alphabet."
I know I'm going to die one day, but I'm doing the people I care about a disservice if I don't try to postpone it as long as I can.

Coffee is disgusting.
13th-Jun-2009 10:32 pm (UTC)

1. Vodka.
2. My family.
3. My family. I'd tell them I love them.
13th-Jun-2009 10:42 pm (UTC)
I've tasted vodka. Very weak, but not completely repulsive.

When was the last time you saw your family?
13th-Jun-2009 10:34 pm (UTC)

Hamburger.
My computer screen.
My family. I'd tell them I love them and to keep kicking ass.
13th-Jun-2009 10:43 pm (UTC)
You plan on dying in front of your computer?
14th-Jun-2009 05:19 am (UTC)
Chekov frowns for a bit before answering. Really? This is what he gets in the Nexus? It's...a bit morbid, to be honest. Nevertheless, he answers.

My last meal would be something delicious...probably a steak of some sorts. With the best vodka to drink, of course! If I'm going to die, then I'm going to die happy.

I would like to see my homeland as the last thing I see. Somewhere where there aren't a lot of buildings and plenty of trees. Snow would be nice also, but it's not a requirement.

The last person I would talk to would probably be the Captain or Uhura. It could possibly be Doctor McCoy, though.
14th-Jun-2009 06:08 am (UTC)
There is rather a long delay before the reply finally comes.

Answer again, as if you were to die without any warning.
14th-Jun-2009 06:34 am (UTC)
1] Goulash with a side of creamed spinach, pretzels with mustard, and a Schwarz bier. Chocolate cake for dessert.
2] The people who caught and condemned me dying horribly. That might not be possible, but that would be my wish.
3] Brad Crawford. I'd tell I'm the best he ever had, he should have appreciated me more when he had me, and life would soon show him that.
14th-Jun-2009 04:26 pm (UTC)
That's a wish I can appreciate.
14th-Jun-2009 09:58 pm (UTC)
as much pierogi i can shovel into my gut. it has to be the kind my wife used to make, though. i won't touch anybody else's hand at it.

can i say 'nothing'? i've seen more than i really want to already. i'd just want to be done with it.

nobody. i want my death to be quiet.
15th-Jun-2009 03:43 pm (UTC)
I doubt I could eat a thing if I awaited such a fate.

The sun rise over the moors, when the dew glistens and the bloody sheep are bleating.

My daughter. I'd tell her I'm sorry, and that I love her.
17th-Jun-2009 10:38 pm (UTC)
My last meal would, of course, be a generous and concentrated portion of something to which I am deathly allergic, so that I might die of anaphylaxis before they have the pleasure of executing me.

The last thing I see would be a computer terminal.

The last person I talk to would be my editor. I would have to tell him everything I'd compiled for my latest book so that it might be published posthumously.
18th-Jun-2009 06:02 pm (UTC)
The meal is unimportant. Depending on the method of execution, it would probably be better for everyone's dignity if my stomach were empty.

The last thing I'd want to see is equally unimportant, but there are two things I'd not want to see. I wouldn't want to see the no-doubt cheering crowds waiting for my blood, and I would want to spare my loved ones the memory of seeing me die. However, I know a couple of them would likely insist on walking beside me to the end.

The last person I'd want to see? Carth. He has been with me from the beginning, so it would be fitting he'd be with me at the end. Also, I trust him above anyone else to have the strength needed to turn me in for my crimes.
