    Thirty minutes ago I finish an eight-day binge fueled entirely by profit motive and virtual amphetamines. Bastards gave me more trouble cracking their system than I'd expected - somewhere along the line I got hit with a memetic spiral and spent almost four hours in a near-death coma chanting candy bar jingles to myself. My own fault - I knew the Easter Seals people played rough.

    Twelve minutes ago I get a call from Wendy. She didn't sound good.

    I met Wendy in college. She was fucking the campus AI. Some kind of blackmail deal to keep it from reporting her parents as no-genes. We never hooked up, but our circles venned enough where we knew each other. I was at a B-and-E party in an abandoned hi-rise with my friends, all of us sitting on the petrified plastic carpet when she showed me a lotek pic of her as a kid - this scrawny 11-year-old holding a trophy and a professional-looking rig.

    Turned out she built custom jobs to pay for her tuition. I didn't trust her work then - I hadn't been able to get my hands on an adrenaline buffer yet, and reports had started filtering in about people dying when their rigs maxed out their heartrates. That was before anyone knew about Rem.

    I told her to meet me at the closest Friskie's Sandwiches. The food is shit, but they were giving away free citizenship a few years ago and I needed some sovereign ground to lay low for a while. I grab a table in the back, near some lotek standup games. The noise won't stop anyone with bunny ears but it's the best I can do on short notice.

    "Mind if I sit down?" she asks. leaning on the edge of the table. Not many people can pull off a catsuit like her.

    She keeps her voice calm but I can hear that frayed edge at the back of it - the same edge I heard when she called.

    "It's always business with you, isn't it? Look, this isn't about a job, Jack. I think someone's trying to kill me."

    She glances toward the door, nervous. I can't help doing the same.

    "Who's trying to kill you? You sell someone a bad rig? Besides, I don't do bodyguard work. You know that. You need code, you come to me. I don't stop bullets."

    She looks at me and starts to say something. I want to cut her off, but I let her get it out anyway. Might as well get the whole yarn before I blow her off.

    "Four months ago I did this job for a kid. He said he was twenty, but he looked sixteen. Wanted a higher overflow on his input. Doctors wouldn't let him do it, but he paid for all the equipment up-front. He said I could keep it if he didn't pay, so I figured I'd come out ahead anyway. Stupid, stupid - I should have walked when he couldn't pay right away."

    "So what, you fried his left hemisphere and now he's trying to off you?"

    She looks at me again, and part of me regrets making that crack.

    "Everything went fine. He paid, got up, left. Then a week later he was dead. I saw a feed, and it showed his face - he was the son of the senator for ABS Plastics."

    "The feed didn't say what he died from, but I mean, come on! What if they think it was something I did?"

    I give her a look and she returns it. "You KNOW my stuff is safe, jackass," she snaps, calling me the name she used to use when she was pissed off at me.

    "Ever since then I can't stop feeling like I'm being watched. The other day this guy followed me onto the subway-" she stops, and looks around, more jittery than before now that she's gotten herself wound back up.

    "I think I'm losing my mind, Jack!"

    What now?
    >> BrikOP 04/01/12(Sun)00:47 No.18532776

    Remind her you can't do bodyguard work - but make a sensible offer for help with an identity scrub. Also: pressure her to make sure she's not omitting any information. Was the kid involved in anything? Did she have to do any "specialty" upgrades that would raise an eyebrow?

    And we don't do bodyguarding, but surveillance is basically data. We can set some cams near her place, see if there's actually anyone tailing her.

    "Come on, Jack, you know I'm already as far underneath the radar as anyone can be. Biometric signatures are about the only thing I can't spoof. Shit, did you really think I had citizenship-plus status here?" It's true, she probably has half the readers in town thinking she's someone else. "And no, I don't know if he was into anything else. I mean, shit, he was the son of a senator. It's bad enough being caught giving him a bigger overflow."

    Theoretically the overflow limit on a rig was a personal right, and anyone over the age of 18 could modify theirs to give them more immediate feedback. In practice, the only time anyone cared about it was when some prep-school dropout fried his brain on sims of beating women to death. Then it was a big deal, and the feeds were full of crackdowns and how-tos for a three-day cycle before things would go back to normal.

    "Fine, then what do you want?" I ask her. "I can set you up with a whole new life somewhere nice and full of mosquitoes." That was an old joke between us - all those old stories about how people used to hate mosquitoes back before they had gone extinct.

    She starts to say something, and I catch movement out of the corner of my eye. If it wasn't for the last ROM cycles of the adrenomax circulating through my brainstem I wouldn't notice anything, but I do - the guy playing the lotek game lost his last one-up thirty seconds ago. Now he's looking toward the doorway-

    My mind is screaming at me to run, but I force myself to go fishing and surprise surprise I get a bite. No time to check it out now.

    "Can you-" I start to say to her before she holds up a slim blinking shape.

    "Already on it. Ten second delay, then kiss every electronic device in this place goodbye."

    I don't bother calculating how much something like that set her back - enough that she doesn't owe me for saving her life, at least.

    Right. Who can help us in this situation?
    We need a safe or at least untrackable place where we can follow up leads and get in contact with people who are better at this sort of thing than us.
    What untraceable assets/resources have we got available? You don't get anywhere without cash or favors, and I know someone like us has gotta have some stashed where nobody is tracking it.

    I took the pictures in color, then Photoshopped them into grayscale using the vibrance saturation setting. I had to play around with PS, because the normal desaturation makes the image very grainy-looking. This way it retains the shine of the plastic.

    I have gone kind of crazy with the single-bagged minifigs.

    I don't have a ton of bricks. Most of the sets I got as a kid were fairly brick-light, so I ended up with a lot of castle wall pieces, spaceship parts, etc. I probably have less than four gallons of bricks total (not including the flat planks).

    You don't grope the bags? I can pick out anything from a series if I know what bits to look for. I passed over a bunch of Lizard-suit-men in search of other prizes.

    I just moved, but the store back where I was had really cool staff and a surplus of boxes. They'd let me and my girl feel up the bags for hours if need be; on two occasions they even busted out fresh boxes to let me look for the rare ones (Dwarf and Elf, got both). I later saw an elf at a comic con going for 15 bucks... talk about luck!

    >You don't grope the bags?

    I am terrible at it. I was at an alternative kids' toy store about six months ago and the clerk working the counter was ridiculously talented at finding specific ones. Apparently she had gotten all the ones she'd wanted so far out of their latest shipment so she offered to find a spaceman for me. And she did. Otherwise I just hope for the best. I ended up with a bunch of Barnes & Noble gift cards, so I've been grabbing six or eight bags every time I'm there (which isn't very often; there isn't one close to me).

    In LQ-related news, I don't think there's gonna be any game tonight, but the chance of a game tomorrow night is currently in the high 90s.
