Ten Forward & The Sands



Guest Poster: Guinan

I'm getting a little worried about business here in Ten Forward. Over the last couple of days, the place has become very quiet. It used to be a very active place, but now it's more like people were expecting Data to give a poetry recital.

That's not it, of course; the real reason is Vic Fontaine and the Sands nightclub.

Ever since that continually running program was installed in Holodeck 6, people have flocked to see Fontaine and his nightly shows. As a result, Ten Forward is very empty.

It's no use going to Jean-Luc. He will just say that the crew need a place to relax and enjoy when their shift is over. They have a choice of where to go.

Besides that, he and Beverly go and get the best seats in The Sands every night.

The only way to tackle this is to talk to Fontaine himself.

-----------------

As I step in, Fontaine and his band have just finished rehearsing a number. He sees me, smiles and walks over.



"Guinan!" he says with a smile, as he takes me hand and kisses it, "I've heard so much about you; I had no idea you were so beautiful."

This sure disarms someone who was about to complain about their business being taken away!

"Look, Mr Fontaine..." I start, "I need to talk to you about.."

"Call me Vic, I insist." he replies, "Come over here and we'll chat for a while." He calls to his band that they should take a break for ten minutes.

I tell Vic about the problem I am having, and he looks very apologetic.

"Guinan." he tells me, "I had no idea this situation would occur; if I knew, I would have set up another arrangement. Perhaps we can work together at this."

"How do you mean?"

"Well." he replies, "How would you like to be co-owner of the Sands as well as Ten Forward?"

I smile; Vic is a shrewd businessman. He would have done well in the 20th century; better than that guy named Gates.

"I like how you think, Vic." I tell him, "We could promote each other's business."

"Exactly!" Vic says with a smile, "The holographic bands could guest in Ten Forward, and any solid artists could come to The Sands."

"Quid Pro Quo." we say together, and seal the deal with a kiss.

"Careful." I say, "I am well over 500 years old."

"...and I'm a hologram!" Vic replies, "There are some unusual couples in the universe."

Vic goes up to the band, tells them something and they start singing.

That old black magic has me in its spell
That old black magic that you weave so well
Icy fingers up
and down my spine
The same old witchcraft when your eyes meet mine

The same old tingle that I feel
inside
When that elevator starts its ride
Down and down I go, round and round I go
Like a leaf that's
caught in the tide

I should stay away but what can I do
I hear your name, and I'm aflame
Aflame with
such a burning desire
That only your kiss can put out the fire

You are the lover that I've waited for

The mate that fate had me created for
And every time your lips meet mine....


I smile, and leave the club. Even a 500 year old can still charm them!

This visit of complaint didn't turn out too bad after all!

I didn't see this coming at all.

It sounds like a win-win for all concerned... until the holodeck turns on a full house at the Sands... as holodecks on the Enterprise are wont to do....

Captain, keep your phaser at the ready even at the Sands....

Erifia Apoc said...

Guinan, I don't like where this is going babe. Check it out, he said Co-Owner of the Sands (And Ten Forward.) That means he wants co-ownership of your club. Be careful... Tread with caution.

Titania Starlight said...

What a charmer Vic is! But still it is best to be cautious with guys who make your thighs melt like butter. Especially a 500 year old!

craziequeen said...

Win-Win - but then that is why the Captain likes to keep you on board....
you are famous for your negotiating skills, Guinan.

Nice to see you posting, Guinan!

Well, I suppose if Fontaine gets too big for his britches you can always switch him off.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Dangit, my comment from yesterday disappeared.

I asked if holographic entertainers work for cheap.

Summer Dawn O'Ciardha said...

Well played, Guinan. I couldn't have done better myself.

DariDonovan said...

Have dinner at The Diner, see my blog for directions, lol.

Linda said...

This could prove to be interesting or it could take a nasty turn somewhere ... we shall have to see!

squirrel said...

I just love that song!

squirrel said...

I just love that song!

WindWhisperer said...

Strange couple indeed, but somehow, I see a love match...

Nic said...

WOW! Totally unexpected and completely profitable. Well played! :)

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

captain i TOLD you there was chocolate on cruise ships! ha ha

smiles, bee

Barbara said...

Vic knows how to charm them.

Gyrobo said...

So this whole time...

Guinan was actually Steve Jobs.

Who knew?!

dragonflyfilly said...

Black Magic you say....hmmmm, chocolates.....

but seriously, i was wondering what it would be like to be kissed by a holographic image?????

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Now that's good business!

cooltopten said...

That song does have a witchraft effect on girls i,m sure.

Kønig Hasemörder said...

I'm sorry Guinan but my 21st century mind can't comprehend a time without money. What on earth do you use for currency?

It's attention isn't it?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Erifia, I don't think you have anything to worry about; Guinan is a smart one and won't let anyone take advantage, especially a smooth-talking hologram.

Jaime H. said...

Guinan, if I ever need a negotiator, I'm calling you!

Professor Xavier said...

You've got class, Guinan.

Kristi Mantoni said...

howdy!!!

Lahdeedah said...

maybe just deleting the hologram, or altering the program so he can only wear dresses....
