"For the record, I didn't have a hair emergency," Anakin said grumpily. "I had to watch my children unexpectedly and panicked. Today we're going to Antartica."

If you hadn't been cold enough last week, boy are you in luck, kids!

"Through the portal you go." Beat. "You might want to put on a coat first."

Was Anakin trying to outdo last week's class in bad ideas?

Ahsoka wrote something very, very rude in Huttese on her postcard.

By the time Pinkie got to Port Lockroy, she'd turned blue.

Quite literally. Sky blue. There were actual icicles hanging off her nose and fingers.

"D-d-d-do-o-o-o y-y-y-o-o-o-u-u-u h-h-h-a-a-a-v-v-v --"

Fortunately, she was nearly in last place already, so the researchers just handed her the post card and a pencil. Someone helpfully aimed a hair dryer at her while she wrote the meanest thing she could think of to Anakin.

It involved repeated use of the phrase "Meany McMeanhead" and a curse to never make friends with any penguins.

Why did it have to be snow? Khadgar was terrible with a compass, and worse with maps, so he was an annoyed little popsicle by the time he sent his postcard. And he had wet snow everywhere, ugh!

Yeah, this took forever. Ugh.

Jason's postcard was basically just a selfie of him scowling that he convinced one of the researchers to print out. Because a picture was worth a thousand words and all.
stardust_rogue: (Yeah right)

Jyn struggled with the snowshoes, so she was lagging behind. Her postcard, once her fingers thawed out, was going to contain several very uncomplimentary things about Anakin.

Life sucks and then you die.

That's what her sergeant always said - or, well, the Elantran equivalent.

So Kaylin sucked it up and went. It took her a bit to figure out the floaty arrow thing, which slowed her down some.

Ahsoka counted penguin eggs.

Ahsoka plotted revenge while counting penguin eggs.

Pinkie absolutely went with counting all the penguin eggs. She had to go back and recount for times.

She kept getting distracted making them tiny penguin party hats.

Okay, the penguins were cute, and some of Khadgar's previous teachers were big fans of tedious counting tasks, so the eggs weren't so bad.

He was tempted to try to sneak a penguin out with him, but he figured that would end badly.

Jason was briefly tempted to see if super-durability would prevent hypothermia. Briefly.

Thankfully, sanity took over and he trudged over to the penguin colony to begin counting. Sigh.

Kaylin seriously considered jumping into the Antarctic Peninsula. How much colder could it be? And when it was this cold, didn't the water often feel warmer? Someone had told her that. She thought.

In any case, after a great deal of arguing, (and some very swearing and creative name-calling by the guy in charge - which Kaylin memorized for further use), she decided not to.

It took her forever to count the eggs because she and the guy bonded over swearing and she shared some very interesting Elantran insults and swears and a wonderful growly obscenity in Leontine and, well, that was a lot more interesting.

Ahsoka didn't so much throw a snowball at Anakin as fling most of a snowbank with the Force.

Pinkie had gone from sky blue to ocean blue. It clashed with her hair.

She was really wishing he'd told them to wear pants as well as coats.

"I was really hoping there was going to be something warm waiting for us here," Khadgar said, with just a liiittle whine in his voice.

Jason almost gave in to the temptation to throw a snowball, but in a moment of demonstrable character growth, actually managed to not do the thing.

Snowballs were incoming. And Jyn had good aim.

Kaylin wandered in, late, and cold, but happy and replete with new swears and insults.

One of my castmates from Arsenic and Old Lace went on an Antarctic cruise this March/February. I was deeply jealous.
