Why didn’t any of these kids TELL me I had blue ink on my nose? They usually love pointing things out!
(WHO WANTS SOME KITTY!FIC TODAY? Speed-written by request, inspired by a video of cats in zero gravity conditions.)
"Sir," said Rajya, "the shuttlecraft’s off-course. I can’t get a response from the crew."
Wessel glanced at her monitor. “Life signs?”
"Still present, but subdued. Almost as if they’re unconscious."
He rubbed his chin. “Odd. They couldn’t have been hijacked. That shuttle’s only ferrying animals to the research station.”
"Sir, they’re not drifting. Someone inside is actively changing course."
Wessel checked the readings on a few other monitors, then sat down at his own control station. He quickly tapped out a command. “I’ve remotely deactivated the artificial gravity. That ought to throw them for a minute…”
Rajya switched on the monitor to see what was going on in the craft. Two very startled cats, one tri-coloured and the other tabby, clung to each other in midair. “The animals have gotten loose in the cabin,” she said to her supervisor. “Kitty-kitty-kitty!” she cooed, “It’s all right kitty. We’re gonna get you back safe. Kitty-kitty-” A third, somewhat scruffy-looking one, peered over the edge of the control panel. He reached out and switched the monitor off.
She gaped at the screen. “They hung up on me!”
"That’s better," said the scruffy black and white cat. He dug his claws into the fabric of the pilot’s seat to keep from rising up. "Now then, we ought to be able-"
"Doctor, what’s happened?" asked Victoria, who had never found herself floating in midair before.
"They’ve turned off the gravity."
"Oh, aye, that," said Jamie.
Tonight, when you’re in bed and you can’t sleep because you hear strange noises and there are shadows and you’re certain that something is in the room with you and you swear you can hear it breathing and it’s right under your bed…
…just be cool. It’s only Clara and she’s just as scared as you are. It’s her first day. Be patient.

They do here, but, well, I live in Mexico. Cactus paddles are even in our flag. Does it count?
Sure, why not?
Pretty sure you’ve said worse than damn, or is that just in emails? lol.
Maybe in the tags? And on Skype? lol, I don’t usually keep swear statistics.
