Personal Entry #1: New Blood

Spoiler

**Recording...**

The screen flickers as the camera begins recording, Jodie's face incredibly close to the lens, her tongue sticking out a bit as she messes with it. She takes a second before realising it's recording, setting it down after and sitting back down, on a stool within the bar. "Oh, there we go. Alright, well.. I'm here. One of my friends gave me this idea before I got shipped off, some way to keep all my thoughts and stories to either look back on or show my family, or to just argue with myself from time to time. But yeah, so.. I made it. I landed on the ship just yesterday, got settled into the barracks, then straight back out, no messing around. Literally, within an hour, and the tannoy was calling us all to a briefing.. It was, uh.. scary, I guess?" She plays with her long dark hair idly as she talks, often glancing behind her to see if anyone had walked in. "I mean, Dad did say that the Mobile Infantry was dangerous, but you honestly don't see it until bullets land a foot from your.. well, foot." She sighs, folding her arms and leans on the counter that the camera sits on. "And for such a big ship, I've barely met anyone... Just a few folks at the bar, drowning their sorrows, but.. Too depressing for me, I think. We'll wait and see how the rest of the week goes." She shrugs, before giving a mock two fingered salute along with a slight smirk. "Private Cutter, out."

**End Recording.**

Personal Entry #2: The Swing of Things

Spoiler

**Recording...**

The camera turns on, sitting across from Jodie as she sits cross legged on her bed, the barracks lights dim. She looks tired, her eyes dark and her long hair let loose and messy. She sighs heavily, running a hand through it. "Well.. Still my first week here, so far so good.. Had a few training sessions, done some cover manouvers under Staff Sergeant Vickers. She seems nice, knows what she's doing and isn't an asshole to everyone. Then we done a simulation later on under the Captain, can't remember his name... God, it was awful." She shakes her head, rubbing her eyes after. "I've never seen the Bugs firsthand yet, but in the Sim-Room, it all feels so.. real, but so fake.. It's weird..." She frowns, one hand moving to hold her side. She lifts her tanktop slightly, bruising seen up her right side of her waist. "And on my second drop, some asshole in a big suit smashed me into a wall... Hurt like a bitch, but Vickers and a Private, Baxter I think, they helped me." She yawns quietly, covering her mouth. "Alright, shut-eye time.." She reaches forwards to turn the camera off, a blank expression on her face, before the screen cuts out.

**End Recording.**

Personal Entry #3: The Longest Day Ever

Spoiler

**Recording...**

The camera turns on, facing a blank wall while movement is heard behind it. After a moment it is turned back, Jodie holding it in one hand, the other fixing the bottom of her black t-shirt. Her eyes are dark once more, a small red paper-thin scan above her eyebrow with small white strips of tape across it seen. Her voice is tired and slightly raspy, like she's losing her voice. "So, uh... It's been a, uh.. a really odd day. Yeah, I, uh.. Today was my third drop, and my first against the Bugs. Adam always told me stories about them, which didn't make it any less scary when I saw them up close and personal. I'd have probably been even more scared, had I not been in command of my own squad, which the Captain was also part of. I was more scared in case I fucked up and he took over for me." She gives a slight smirk, crossing her legs, fidgetting idly with her fingers. "Who'd have thought it? I only made it to Private a day or two ago, barely even here a week. On the dropship, the Captain made me Private First Class so there was no confusion, and I guess he and Staff Sergeant Vickers saw something in me, so.. Now I'm a Lance Corporal. Heh.. Less than a week, not even trying to prove myself.. I guess it just comes naturally. I just got down there, blocked out the bugs and focused on my team. Guess that's what any good leader would do, right? My men before me.." She sighs softly, running a hand through her long messy hair. Her bare arms would be covered in bruises, which she glances at and addresses. "Yeah.. turns out, bugs are heavy sons of bitches.. Like, real heavy. Still, could have been worse.. Though I gotta go now, I'm shattered.. I'll keep you guys posted." The screen cuts out as she reaches over, turning the camera off.

**End Recording.**

Personal Entry #4: A Summary

Spoiler

**Recording...**

The camera turns on, adjusting to a dim light. After a moment of moving around, Jodie is brought into the frame, seen sitting down on a bed, the camera sitting on her pillow. She's only wearing a short tanktop and a pair of black boxers, ready for bed. She rubs her eyes, yawning. "Oh, holy shit... I don't even know where to begin, it's been a little while. Well, uh... So far, I'm still alive. I've never seen the inside of the medbay yet, so that's good, at least. I've came so close to getting caught by a bug these last few drops, but... Luck, I guess." She shrugs, running her hands through her long black hair idly as she talks. "I'm meeting quite a lot of people on the ship now. Not a lot of people seem to be pretty open, though, it's pretty hard making friends.. So far the only person I get along best with is Jaz. She's pretty cool, good squad leader and doesn't seem to like trying to make friends, but.. who does? There's a few others I talk to now though, but what I do notice is, everyone seems to work pretty well on the field. Friends or not." She shifts, turning to face the camera and crosses her legs, resting her elbows on her knees and her face in her hands. "I, uh.. I've had a few chances to lead squads now. It's weird, like.. I wanna go career. No, I -am- going career. I wanna be up there, I wanna be remembered, I wanna make my mark on this company and help keep us alive. But when I get put up for squad lead I always hesitate and doubt myself... Me and Vickers had a quick talk about it after our last hellhole of an Op, and I'm guessing she and Top had a talk about it beforehand, so.. She made me Corporal." She smiles slightly, then shakes her head. "More responsibilities, more chances to prove myself... More chances to fuck up big time... Here we are, on our way to the big leagues.. Fuck, I'm tired.." She yawns once more and leans over the camera, turning it off.

**End Recording.**

Personal Entry #5: Fear

Spoiler

**Recording...**

The camera turns on to show Jodie sitting on a bed, not her own, but one in the medbay. She sits the camera a few feet away to face herself, showing she's dressed in more or less her PJs, a black tanktop and black shorts, though has a bandage round her right knee which is straightened on the bed. She lets out a heavy sigh, her eyes dark, though her long and messy hair partially shadows them. "Well... Took me long enough to end up in here, huh? We just got back from a drop. One -hell- of a drop. God, it was horrible. We were on Dionysus, bugs coming from everywhere, TACs dropping fire, -flaming- bugs coming from everywhere... Then we decided to go -underground- and through some tunnels, which all went to shit." She shakes her head, rubbing her forehead with the palm of her hand. In her other hand she grabs a bottle of water from the edge of her bed and uncaps it, taking a sip, before resuming. "It was a nightmare... I took Blaster Plasma to the knee and boy oh fucking boy did it sting.. Vickers almost took a bad hit, one of the Privates got it worse than me, then.. Ghenki, the 'Rauder, he took a big hit and paid the ultimate price.." She falls silent, the silence lingering for a long moment before she sniffs once, looking off to one of the walls idly. ".. This is the real world, I guess... It happens to us all, at some point, some more brutally than others... Guess we gotta just suck it up and keep it moving. I hate.. I hate being so.. emotionless. I mean, I have emotions, just... Even the other NCOs must have noticed, I don't crack up in the field and I keep a clear head no matter what, but one day it's all just gonna come barrelling out, y'know..? And it scares me. It scares me, incase I fuck up. It's my only fear.. Not the bugs, not the Progs, not dying, but letting everyone down..." She lets out a short and quiet laugh, more of a huff. ".. Stupid, right...? Afraid of failure... I know it happens. We all fail eventually-.." Chatting is heard off-camera and entering the room, Jodie quickly grabbing the camera, before the screen cuts out.

Archived Entry #1: Family Time

Spoiler

**Fetching Recording... Playing.**

The screen flickers to life, the video feed beginning. A date is shown in one corner: October 23rd, 2295. The video is shown to be from a handheld camera, given the slight shakyness. It is aimed at two girls, one a younger Jodie, the other her older sister Paula, who both share a striking resemblance despite being aged years apart. They're seated outside on a patch of grass in an open park within the city, sitting cross legged, Jodie holding a guitar and playing it very softly, Paula mid-sentence as the video starts.

Paula: "-on't know what Dad was really like, he left when I was like.. three. You'd just been born, and he legged it a week later.. asshole." 

Jodie: "Wish Mom would have told us more about him, other than that he just straight up abandoned us.. You think he was in the MI like Adam was?"

Paule: "I dunno... Probably? Maybe that's where he ran off to, who knows?"

They both share a shrug and sigh quietly, leaning back as the sun shines down on them. A younger female voice perks up from behind the camera, their little sister, Emily.

Emily: "... Jodie, can you play the one Mom likes? The one she sang to each of us?"

Jodie: "Oh, uh.. Yeah, I think I remember it.. Alright.."

She takes a deep breath before strumming the guitar slightly louder, playing a slow and soothing melody of Forever Now (// Michael Buble, fags.) They sing together, smiles on their faces, swaying from side to side as they sing. Though they begin to trail off eventually, Paula's head hanging low, Jodie with a few tears rolling down her cheeks.

"~That I'm always gonna lift you up.. and I'm never gonna let you down.. No matter what you do, I'm forever proud of you.. I'll love you foreeeever noooow...~"

The girls sit in silence for a moment, before Jodie discards of the guitar to the side. She shifts onto her knees and practically throws herself at Paula, wrapping her arms around her sister tightly as they both sniffle and sob quietly. The camera is sat down, Emily joining them in their hug.

Jodie: "... I'm.. gonna miss you, sis.."

Emily: "M-Me too.."

Paula hugs them both tightly before letting go, the three sitting in silence, save for the quiet crying, before the video pauses on a frame of them smiling at each other through the tears.

Personal Entry #6: Quick Rundown

Spoiler

**Recording...**

The camera flickers to life, revealing Jodie sitting on one of the benches in the gym, alone. She sits the camera down facing her as she straddles the bench, a bottle of water infront of her. Her hair is currently tied into a ponytail, a fresh plaster on her cheek. "Alright. So. It's been a pretty long week, haven't had a lotta time to myself, but.. anyway. So I've been given this 'project' to help me as an NCO. The project being, I need to motivate and reshape this infantry trooper, because he's lazy as hell, and has no motivation. It's day... three, I think? He's already starting to show some promise. Vicker's got him working out, he's showing initiative on drops.. I'm going to help him run some training, give him a feel at having responsibilities." She sighs quietly and uncaps her water bottle, taking a sip from it. She then sets it back down, her left hand idly tracing the ribbon tattoo on her right wrist as she talks. "The problem is his sleeping... He's always sleeping. He took three naps in one hour, he sleeps at every briefing I've seen him in, he's always dragging his feet around and moaning... It'll take time, but I'm gonna get through to him somehow... Just listen to us and work with us, dammit, we're trying to help.." She mutters something under her breath, taking another sip from her water bottle and glances over to the door to the gym, faint voices heard walking by.  "In other news, I got my first drop as actual Drop Lead this time, and it was a piece of cake. Granted, it wasn't as fucked as the day before, but still... Smooth as hell, no injuries, no having to yell... I've seen asshole NCOs and I don't like their approach, so I'm trying my own calm approach, and so far so good. Guess I just keep at it, and hope for the best.. Still not Sergeant material though. Not yet, anyway." She leans over and grabs the camera, turning it off quickly after.

Archived Entry #2: 'That' Day

Spoiler

**Fetching Recording... Playing.**

The camera flickers to life, showing a date in the bottom corner once more: October 25th, 2296. It is shown to be held in a bar, pointed at Jodie, who is currently behind the bar, wiping it down with a damp cloth. Quiet laughing is heard from behind the camera, Jodie looking up at it. She smirks and shakes her head. "Emily, put that thing away... I'm trying to work here." Emily's voice pipes up from behind the camera. "What? Just recording some home videos to show Paula once she gets back, y'know? Showing her how her little sister makes her littler sister drinks at her bar." They both laugh quietly, Jodie chucking the cloth at Emily, who ducks out the way of it, the camera bumping off the bartop. "You're not even old enough to drink here yet, idiot!" "Yeah, but you know they don't really mind.." Jodie rolls her eyes, groaning. "Ugh... When's Paula back anyway? Isn't it supposed to be this week her two years were up?" "Yeah, should be, but she's not messaged in a while... Oh! What if she's going to surprise us?! Ooh, it's so exciting!" Jodie smirks and shakes her head once more, moving along the bar to serve an older couple. Emily turns the camera to herself, just sitting idly as she waits for her sister to finish up. After a minute she turns it back to Jodie, who's now cleaning glasses. The door is heard opening to the side of the shot, Jodie looking over. "Oh, hey Mom! Hey, Adam! What you guys doing here?" Her question is met with silence, the smile on her face slowly fading. "Mom? What is it? Is-.. wait, is.. is she...?" The camera drops to the bartop onto its side, Emily heard rushing from her seat, the crying already heard. Jodie just stands there in silence, her hands shaking, before the glass she's holding drops, the sharp smashing of glass heard below her. She then runs off camera to join them, the feed ending on a shot of the back of the bar, the reflection of Jodie collapsing into her mother and step-dad's arms seen off a bottle on the counter.

Cpl. Jaz Williams: "I met Jaz pretty early into my time on the ship at the bar, same with most of the company, really. We talk a lot of the time, mostly in the bar, as usual. She's really nice, we get along so easily and have quite a bit in common. So far she's one of the only people I'd consider an actual friend, only person willing enough to share at least a little personal stuff, and she knows what she's doing out there, so I know she's got my back when I need her to."

 

Pfc. Chiyuki 'Frog' Asahi: "Asahi is... Different. He's really lazy, I'm not gonna lie, and everyone can see that. But at the same time, I see a lotta potential. So does Vickers and Franco. He just needs that... Push. A gentle push to just get him back on track, and not be the weak link anymore. He's starting to show some promise, though, and I can see him changing pretty soon.."

 

WO. Franco Sorrentino: "Franco's cool. Like, we sometimes act like assholes to each other but it's all in good jest, right? He knows I like to take the piss so he returns it from time to time, which is funner than watching the rest just stare at me like I'm mental. He's also decided to take me under his wing, I guess? Some sort of mentor for me to help shape me into a better NCO. Yay."

 

Cpt. Sebastian Bently: "Captain Bently's our Cee-Oh. I met him on the same drop I first got squad lead, and he was put into my squad, so.. No pressure then. He seems really dependable, cool under pressure, and knows exactly what he's doing. I've only briefly seen him mingling on the ship, so I'm not too sure yet what he'll be like with others. All I've really learnt from him so far is if you've got a cold, coffee and double scotch is the answer."

 

Pfc. Leena Stokes: "Stokes has more or less been there beside me through the absolute shit. She's pretty blunt, but she stays in line and knows her shit. She's had a few good words said as well, so I can see her getting up there pretty soon."

 

Pfc. Eric Shepard: "Shepard's a bit of a puzzle. I've been on a few drops with him, our first one I asked him to be my second and he seemed a bit annoyed by the notion. Most times I see him he's either talking back to NCO's, or just.. being a pain. Who knows if he's always like this, though?"

 

3Spc. Valarie Faust: "Still don't know much about Faust, don't see her around the ship that often. Heard she transferred to Marauder's not long ago. We'll see how she does with that."
