    After talk to Ken about possibly modifying your core, you decide to check in on Ari, and see how she's handling training.

    You walk over to the monitor bank Elsie's sitting at and watch.

    "What mode she doing?"

    "Survival. See how long she can handle herself against worse and worse opponents."

    "And she went with a Urban setting?"

    "For this one, yeah."

    You watch. There's a heavy melee built coming right at her. She jets one of her plates at the last second, and his heat rod gets caught in the metal shard and misses her core entirely. She then hits the over-boost and slams right into him hard enough to bisect him.

    "This is the rig she has out in the hangar?"

    "Yep. And before you ask, Mooch coded it in, so it should be fairly accurate."

    You continue to watch. Three more cores drop in. Two of them are mid-ranged like yourself, and the last one is a heavy more on her scale. She turns and retreats, And her core goes rigid. "A glitch?"

    "No, she just left combat mode."


    "It's a dual phase rig remember? She can go between a combat mode and a support-mode at the drop of a hat."

    "So why?" And then Ari answers your question for you, by shooting a handful of rockets into the building ahead of her. You check the displays: no hostile contacts...

    Then she goes back into active mode, and over-boosts through the building, losing some of her plate in the process. The enemy cores give chase, and get smashed in the rapidly collapsing building as Ari smashes free on the other side.

    "That was reckless."

    "Must run in the family."

    To be honest, I think we're very conservative in real combat, and only balls-to-the-wall crazy in simulations.
    I don't think we'd done anything that might be construed as reckless in real combat.

    The first time was sort of beyond our control and the second time was the only other time I can think of that we have been remotely reckless and that was because we thought is was the safer option at the time.

    "I have no idea what you're talking about."

    She snorts. "Oh REALLY. Then I'm so glad I made this video."

    You see that she's put together a brief montage of various things you've done while piloting. First up was during your training back at hope, when you and Dave used a boulder as siege weapon during one memorable combat sim.

    Then comes the one where you got your first actual combat kill against some bandits, where you opened up by kicking their leader's head off and using him as an improvised shield to take on his friends.

    After that is the time where you attempted to fly a sim blindfolded, and still scored three kills based on directional ping before Dave took you out.

    Then your fight against Nine-Ball in Hope, where you opened up by leaping INTO his gunfire to kick him in the face. And then later in the same fight where you willingly turned off your weapon, the only thing keeping his laser sword in check, to punch him in the face.

    Then comes the fight against that bandit with the flail, where after getting entangled you chose to use his momentum to LAUNCH both of you out of the trench, into your allies imminent gunfire.

    Then the sims where you tricked your enemies into shooting themselves, then charged directly into rocket-fire to hit a tank with your sword. Then dropped dropped a cliff on some others. Then jumped into the rubble from the cliff-drop, and used it as a moving shield.

    Then the fight against the experimental core, where Elsie begins to comment "You know, I almost have enough clips of you running to deliver a flying kick to the face when you're holding a perfectly good gun that I can almost make a video of nothing but that."

    "Alright, but let's put those into context."

    "Go ahead."

    "First one you played was a combat sim, where we were trying to prove a point: just because we were prepared to deal with a 'standard' threat to hope, didn't make us invincible. Our boulder taking out half the trainees and breaking a hole into the dome proved our point rather effectively."

    "And the Bandit one? Why didn't you just shoot him?"

    "I wasn't in a good position to hit anybody else. So I did something a little crazy to redefine the combat scenario and put myself on favorable ground."

    "Doesn't make it less stupid."

    "When it works, it's reclassified as 'daring'."

    "And Nine-Ball?"

    "If I didn't stop him where he was, our fight would've happened in the middle of those people you were helping evacuate. As it was, I got partially injured and we didn't lose any of those people, as opposed to ALL of them if I didn't change the rules of engagement."
    >> AC-Guy 04/23/12(Mon)01:24 No.18824133

    She's quiet for a moment as she considers this. "What about the bandit?"

    "He had a laser sword on his leg he was a bout to booster-kick into me. Jumping was the best option I had."

    "Fair enough. And the sims?"

    "Which one, the one where I was obviously dicking around? Or the one where I went on the insane killing spree?"

    "You know, your sister can use the same excuse."

    "My sister earns the right to act a little crazy in the sims after she can prove she can fly properly in a combat zone."

    "So then it's hypocrisy?"

    "Look, you've seen how I fly. If I were any less skilled than I am, I would have died well before what happened at hope. I am GOOD enough to fly crazy OCCASIONALLY. That-" you point to a screen with your sister's sim running, as she attempts to use one core on another as a sort of improvised flail "-is a bad habit to get into. We can't have her practicing like that, because then she'll try and fly like that where failure means DEATH, not a low score."

    "....Point taken. I'll talk to her about it when she gets out. By the way judging by the noises coming from upstairs it looks like Mooch is up and searching for coffee."
