Your name is Heather, and not long ago, you killed someone.He was asking you to. Begging you to. Saying strange words you somehow knew wasn't meant entirely for you.But... there was nothing else you could do. You could've tried to help, but he *needed* to be strapped into that machine to live. Rho was asleep in your arms, having clung to you until she did, and Anna was sitting next to you, hand on your shoulder."... We should probably go get some dinner," Anna said, quietly, before stretching. "And then I get to do my new exercises. Yay," She added in a sarcastic tone.You were quiet as you and Anna walked, you stuck in your own head for the most part. Anna, in a strange mood, was babbling like she rarely did."And then he said that 'well, you're looking better, but you've skimped out on any sort of physical exercise', so now I have to make sure to keep fit and eat a lot more than I have been." She said. "And apparently, the rations won't do it for me. So basically, dad's choosing my meals for me. He even talked with the administration to make sure I get more of those protein shakes and nutrient biscuits. Which sucks. But it's for my own good, doc said."

>>24205726"exercise is good, very important even. how did the EMP grenade plan go?"i assume we are still carrying Rho. Are we?
"Well, think of it this way Anna - you've got great genes, right? They're literally designer. Right now, you're very pretty. When you get some actual fat on you? You'll be *smoking* hot."
>>24205726"That's good to hear. How is your father doing by the way?"
>>24205726"You have to do exercises? But... why? I mean, you look good.""Wait, you can't choose your meals anymore? That sucks.
"Exercise is good." You say. "Very important, even. How did the EMP grenade plan go?""He got himself shielded." She said. "So instead I just banged on his casing with a mallet. Got my point across.""That's good to hear," You say. "How is your father doing, by the way?""He had himself wedded entirely into this huge drone." she said. "With a ton of maintenance drones nearby he can interface with. When he gets a bubble drive, he'll strap it to himself. Then he'll pretty much be able to go anywhere.""Well, think about it this way, Anna- You've got great genes, right?" You ask. "They're literally designer. Right now, you're very pretty. When you get some actual fat on you? You'll be *smoking* hot.""I prefer more about not getting exhausted in high-G." She said, cheeks lightening slightly "Or, well... any G, really."The two of you- rho having been tucked into your bed- made your way into the cafeteria, where Jilly, Luna, and Damien sat, talking. Jilly looked rather exhausted, laying down in her foodpallet, but she was still able to talk."How're you doing, Jilly?" Anna asked."Okay." Jilly said. "Tired.""She'll be right fine in the morning." Luna said. "Hello, I'm Jilly's mother.""I'm Anna Mobius." Anna responded, shaking her hand- and slapping her other hand away as Luna reached for her butt. The nagala woman pouted.
>>24205810Seconding this. I want her to blush purple.
>>24205873"You're lucky you saw that coming, Anna. I didn't even get a chance to react."
>>24205873"didn't have to be psychic to see that coming."
>>24205873Snicker"Alas, I never stood a chance myself. I am glad that you survived."
"Didn't have to be psychic to see that coming.""Stop molesting my friends, mom." Jilly said."Alright, alright." Luna said, and sprung to the thick of her tail. "Well, I'd probably best get going. I have the eggs in stasis, now I just need to take them back to Galasra.""Again, mom, thank you for coming here." Jilly said."It's alright, deary. S'wat I'm here for."Luna kissed Jilly on the forehead, and waved and made her way out of the room. Damien's eyes were locked on her as she went, leering."Well." Damien said, scooping more oatmeal into his mouth. "Today's been a good day."
>>24205998"Shame on you, Damien, she's almost a grandmother."
>>24205998"have you got no shame?"
>>24206020Add to this, "Do you /really/ wanna be the guy ogling the GMILF?"
>>24205998"Did she molest you too?"
once things have calmed down, we should tell everyone about what Lambda told us.minus the part about Alex, because Lambda told us not to.
>>24205873>>24205998>These are me!"Did she molest you too?" You ask."Yeeep." He said."Shame on you, Damien, she's almost a grandmother.""No she isn't." Jilly grumbled."Well, think about it." Damien said. "She put a lot of work into looking like that. I'm just appreciating the hard work, respecting the transgene specialists, et cetera. It's respectful to oogle."
>>24206112"Do you have excuses for every situation?"
>>24206112"Well when you put it like that..."
>>24206112Hum, "That's true, I guess."
>>24206112"she did it primarily to make her work as ambassador easier.""i guess you're right though, she is pretty."
"Do you have excuses for every situation?""It helps when I have enough time to come up with them, yeah." He said.Anna sighed, and rolled her eyes. "That's true, I guess." You say. "She is pretty, though."You felt Anna's implant light up- and you realize how similar it felt to Sigma's mind- and then she sighed again, going into the kitchen and coming out with something full of cauliflower and salads. Lots of greens, you notice."And how." Damien said. "By all rights, she shouldn't even have a butt, because of the tail, but still..." Jilly rolled her eyes, and Anna sat down, poking at her food with a fork.
>>24206205"Oh dear. Is that what's on your menu today?"
>>24206205Sigh, have the same as Anna, send a smile at her.
>>24206205"I'll get something a bit more substantial and we can share if you want."
>>24206205>>24206214both of thesebut with bacon-bits on the salad"bacon improves everything anna"
"Oh dear." You say. "Is that what's on your menu today?""Yep." She said. "Most of the rest of my meals will have a lot more meat, which is always good, but today it's all plants."You sigh, make your way to the kitchen, and get the same thing."Can I try one?" Jilly asked, and Anna handed her some. Jilly started to chew. <This is... really, really, really good. It's delicious!> She said.Damien crunched on his overly-sugary oatmeal, and gave the two of you looks. Then he shrugged, went into the kitchen with his bowl, and came out with the same thing as you and Anna- And sliding an empty candy wrapper in his pocket, but he didn't seem to think you noticed.
>>24206262<i c u> send a glare at Damien then chuckle.Dig in, nom nom nom
>>24206262>looks like he munched some sweets before making his way back?have Einstein snap a picture of our meals and send it to our parents to assure them we're eating healthy... every now and then.attach a message: "eventful past few days, eating healthy food! love you!"
>>24206262<I think I will have to sweat that sugar out of you.>
You have Einstein snap a picture and send a message home, while the four of you eat in silence, Jilly spitting her chewed-into-nothingness food into the pallet, so she could eat it that way, and asked for another.<I saw you.> You tell Damien. He met your eyes, winked and shrugged.While the four of you ate, Alex came into the room, looking at what everyone was eating."... I think I'll have, um, something else." He said, and scratched the back of his head. "No offense."
>>24206262"Oh, Anna, we might have another weird crystal to play with later."
>>24206371"but its goooood for you!"
>>24206371"Hey Alex, if you've got a minute later, there's something I need to talk to you about."We should probably tell him about the whole Phi thing, after all.
>>24206371"...It's still better than the rations."
>>24206375This, but add "if it isn't toxic or something"
>>24206399No, we were specifically told it's better if he finds out himself.
>>24206399No.Lambda said no.Let's not.
>>24206399We were told not to tell him about it.
>>24206371<You could use the greens you know. You could last longer in action if you eat your greens.>
>>24206399except that Lambda told us not to and he knew everything.we'll definitely help him while he uncovers his past.
>>24206423>>24206424>>24206432>>24206439Oh okay, I'd forgotten that.
"But it's good for you!" You say."Yeah, well, I'm already really healthy..." He said."It's still better than the rations.""Hey!" Anna said."Yeah, it is." Alex added, and chuckled. "Might as well."After he went and got the same food as everyone else, Anna just closed her eyes for a while, and rolled her neck. It was probably the least delicious food you've eaten, save the rations- cauliflower was one of the few things Dad couldn't make tastier, even with judicious use of bacon."So, um." Alex said. "Do you mind telling me what happened earlier? I was out of the chamber waiting for you, and your chamber opened, and you were, well, asleep at the bottom."
>>24206478"I... talked with Lambda."Sniff."And... killed him."
>>24206478"Oh yeah, I kinda passed out. Anyways thanks for carrying me to bed! IT was really nice of you!"
>>24206478Glare. "Did you cop a feel?"
>>24206478"I...had a talk with Lambda, the prescient one. He was hooked into a big machine that was keeping him alive. He asked me to turn it off."
>>24206478"I found Sigma and Lamda..."Look at the floor with a sad expression.
>>24206504This one followed by>>24206533
>>24206478"I saw the station where they kept Lambda, Rho and Isaac's brother.""He was hooked up to a machine which kept him alive and ask me to turn it off and end his life.""... I did.">sad as fuck but try not to cry.
"I... talked with Lambda." You say.Damien's eyebrows rose."He was hooked into a big machine that was keeping him alive, and... he... asked me to turn it off." You say, and sniffle, looking down to the ground. "And I.... killed him."There was a pause."He shouldn't have asked you." Alex said. He sounded... angry. "You don't-... you just don't- you don't lay that kind of burden on someone. Ever."He took a deep breath to calm himself, and then pulled you into a hug, hand smoothing out your hair.
>>242066101.)Try no to cry.2.)Cry a lot.
>>24206610"I don't... I don't think he had any other option."
>>24206610"I tried to refuse but... *sob*... he told me what he saw and I understood it was too much for him..."And then comes crying. A lot of it.
>>24206610"He didn't have anyone else to ask... he felt so miserable, I gave him as much comfort as I could."
>>24206610"You didn't see him, though.It was horrible, he couldn't survive without that machine, and he couldn't bear the burden of his ability."Look at Damien for a moment.
he was either asleep, or seeing everything. I mean everything. All the bad stuff included. All at once. He needed an artificial heart ten times the size of his body just to survive. What would you have done in his place?I.. Just wish I could have done something, anything for him other then give him peace. He deserved more.
>>24206610"He knew everything, Alex. He saw every bad thing that was going to happen anywhere, and couldn't do anything about it. He couldn't even move."
>>24206610There was no one else who could. could. He was trapped. He only wanted release.
"He didn't have anyone else to ask..." You say, sobbing into his chest. "He felt so miserable... he told me what he saw, and I understood it was too much for him... I... just wish I could have done something. Anything for him, other than give him peace. He deserved more."Quietly, you held onto Alex, and then gave Damien a look.Damien wasn't looking at you. His eyes were looking past you, looking into the past.And then he nodded, and got to his feet."Where are you going?" Jilly asked."Meddling." He responded.
>>24206723"be careful!"we won't be able to follow him.
>>24206723"Okay.. just don't meddle with things too much okay?"
>>24206723<Don't tell of him.>
>>24206723Go with him.
>>24206723Go with him. "What are you going to meddle with?!"
>>24206810>>24206782Leave the man alone. He's probably going to try to time-meddle.
>>24206782>>24206810He's probably going to time travel so we can't go with him. And if he needed our help he'd ask.
You get to your feet and follow him out of the hallway, as he walked. He still wasn't looking at you, though you knew he could- his eyes were looking far, off into the distance, and you felt the dull ache of a headache coming from him, bleeding through."What are you going to meddle with?" You ask, following him."Not sure yet." He said. "Things are changing so much as I plot. It's hard to... hard to keep track."He pulled a tissue out of his pocket, and blew his nose. You think you saw blood through it.Medbay." He said, and suddenly whirled around, quickly turning directions. "And Heather, you won't be able to come with me."
>>24206849"....I know. Be careful"
>>24206849"I know... just be careful okay? Promise me you will return without harming yourself."
>>24206849"Be careful." Give him a kiss on the cheek.
>>24206849"Don't brain damage yourself. Trust me, it's painful."
"... I know." You say. "Be careful. Promise me you'll come back without harming yourself."He nodded. "And I have no idea if I'll ever be back." He said. "Just... just so you know. That doesn't mean I'll be hurt, but... well... timelines..."He shook his head. "Anyway, I got to go lie to the nurse. Get back to dinner, okay?"You nodded, and he went into medbay, leaving you in the hall."Kailynn..." Damien said. "I'm me, from the future. I need a few things, and quickly."Not long later, he came back, with a bag on his shoulder.
>>24206849"good luck... and be careful...
lets go eat. either this will work or Damien will be gone from this timeline. (we'll just have to build a manyworld crossover machine to get him back)
>>24206914wish him luck again, kiss him on the cheek maybe, then return to dinner.
>>24206914"Even... Even if you don't come back, promise me one thing: Don't die."
>>24206914motherfucker you better come back.
>>24206914"Good luck."Go back to dinner.
>>24206914Kiss him."Good luck. You'd better come back or I'll never forgive you."
"Good luck." You say, and kiss him on the cheek."You'd better come back or I'll never forgive you.""And if I do come back?" He asked, and then kissed you on the lips, his hand on the small of your back. He chuckled, and made his way toward the dorms. He entered Jilly's room, came out with a spare eggpit under the other arm, gave you a nod, and made his way down to the isolation chambers.Back at dinner, Alex and Anna were talking, Jilly sitting up. The nagala looked a lot better now, and Alex was eating, calm. You'd almost expected him to be fuming, for some reason... and Anna's implant was lit up- she was messaging someone, it looked.
>>24206971kiss him for good luck!
>>24206990"...So how's everyone feeling?"
>>24206990Go back to eating. Let's just listen in. The timeline may have already changed, so let's be careful.
>>24206990Thank Alex for comforting us. we really shouldn't have run off like that but the situation suddenly kicked in to overdrive.take a pill and try to finish our food.
>>24206990>a spare eggpitThe fuck does he need that for.
>>24207005>The timeline may have already changedif it has we'll never know unless Damien tells us
>>24207013it's got stasis
>>24206990Give another hug for Alex."Thanks."
>>24207014Maybe it was a magic kiss that let us remember the previous timeline.
>>24207014Except we still remember the old one, assuming it has changed. And it's going to look really weird if we thank Alex for something he retroactively never did.
>>24207041We don't really know how time travel works in this universe.
You pull Alex into a hug. "Thanks.""No problem." He said. You sit back in your seat, take your pill, and continue eating."... So how's everyone feeling?""Hm? Fine." Alex said, "A little jealous, I admit, but that's because I'm a possessive berk.""Whining to dad." Anna said."I'm feeling a lot better than I was a little while ago." Jilly said. "Not enough for training, but enough for videogames.""We're actually starting up Demiurg commander seven after dinner. We beat six in coop mode." Alex said. "Do either of you want to join us?""I might as well." Anna said. "Though keep in mind, if the guns don't work like they're supposed to, I'll ruthlessly make fun of the game.""Oh, of course." Alex said, and chuckled.
>>24207077"I'll join as well, unless the researchers are finished with that thing I made today."
>>24207077we can watch and maybe try it out, maybe try to talk to the game.
>>24207077"I can play until I need to do SCIENCE!"
>>24207077"Might go aswell. It will help clear my head."
>>24207077"Let's do it!"We can totally cheat and ask the game to make things easier for us.
>>24207077"I'll join, I need to relax."
>>24207121You know what would really help us take the edge off?Black tar heroin.
>>24207127>Black tar heroinPleb shit. China white master race.
>>24207143It's only the master race if you want to drop dead the instant you shoot up.
"I might join as well." You say. "IT'll help clear my head.""Nothing like an overcharged plasma caster for clearing heads." Alex said, and Anna started giggling.Demiurg Commander was a relatively simple game. The four of you were different humongous demiurg soldiers, equipped in powerful armor and assaulting the UPA singlehandedly, riding flaming spacecraft into atmospheres, stealing spacecraft, and basically being genocidal maniacs. There were a handful of different weapons, other than looted UPA ones- plasma casters, explosive bores, several melee weapons, and... your personal favorite. A small churning machine called the Ion Laser- it shot a bright blue beam of light, firing and cutting through everything until it ran out of fuel. Weilding one, you controlled your soldier to headbutt the exo-suit wearing marine, and carved a circle out the hull, tugging the other soldiers out of the hole. Then Anna's demiurg hit the switch to start up the ship's bubble drive now that the boarding mission was a success, and the end-chapter music played. Chapter four complete, the tridscreen said.Jilly yawned."I think that's it for me, for now." She said."Yeah, we can play the rest later." Alex said. The five of you were in the rec room, Omnissiah watching more documentaries on the tridvision, remote in manipulator."That was pretty fun." Anna said. "I'm actually impressed with the way they showed Blackreach in this. They're actually scary to fight."
>>24207180"Yeah. Although that Ion laser gives me an idea..."
>>24207180"I like the laser. "
>>24207180"Pretty lights." sigh.
"Yeah. Although that ion laser gives me an idea..." You say, as Jilly said her goodnight and went to her dorm."What kind of idea?" Anna asked.You pull up your omnitool, turn on the projector, and sketch your idea quickly, projecting it on the wall.>Pic related!Anna tilted her head. "Huh. You know... that would... actually probably work. I think. I could send the idea to the friend who made my fusion cannon, see what she says."And then, his clothes stained in blood, Damien walked into the rec room."Why are you covered in blood?" Anna asked. "Are you hurt anywhere?""Oh, hey, I'm back." He said. "Figured you should know. How long has it been?"You check the clock."Three hours." You say."Right! Almost on time!" He said.Alex took a step back, his eyebrows raising."Also, I can't see." Damien said. "Like, at all."
>>24207281"Almost on time for what?"
>>24207281<Hey, Niss, come check out my design, would you? Tell me if there's anything better I could add.>
>>24207281"Do you know how long?"
>>24207281"In that case, me and Anna will have to take care of you."
>>24207281"oh calm down alex, it's just a little time travel.""can I ask whose blood this is? or do I really want to know?"
>>24207281"Alex, what's wrong?"
>>24207281>>24207281you have lambda's brain in that spare egg container don't you.
>>24207281"I take it you meddled really good then?"
>>24207281"Welcome back, I'm glad you didn't go and get yourself stuck in an alternate timeline... unless you did and you're a Damien from an alternate timeline who got stuck in this one and... Yeah, I'm going to stop thinking about that."
>>24207281"No really, why are you covered in blood?"
Right, Einstein can be your guide again when no one is around to help you. Though maybe I should make you your own drone if this keeps happening.Hmm, drone or weapon.
>>24207349first one then t'other
"Calm down, Alex. It's just a little time travel." You say, and turn to Damien. "Almost on time for what?""Almost on time to come back at the same time I left." He said, and with a huff, sat back on one of the chairs. "Three hours, huh? I was scared I'd end up a few years early, or something."He closed his eyes for a while, taking a deep breath. You pull him into a hug."Do you know how long you're blind?""Last time, it was a few days. Could be shorter or longer.""Can I ask who's blood this is?" You ask. "Or do I really want to know?""Lambda's. His head is in the egg container, in medbay." Damien said. The blood, surprisingly, was all dry- and looked like it had been for quite some time- at least a day."What the fuck?" Alex asked."No, no no." Damien said. "I have good reason for it. Stuffed his brain full of cryosleep chemicals, to preserve it, and then I used the egg container to stasis the whole thing. Now if we can get Theta to help heal him all up..."
>>24207281"I don't know if I want to know whether is that blood yours or not..."
>>24207390"Holy shit Dr. Frakenstein, what the hell? You can't just go removing people's heads!"
>>24207390Should we start freaking out now?
>>24207390"you... took his head?"
>>24207390"So we can save Lambda? That's awesome... and kinda gross how you did it. But mainly awesome!"
>>24207390"... BUT I HAVEN'T RESCUED THETA YET!" Panic.
>>24207390"That's kind of crazy. How did you even get to his body in the middle of a security lockdown?"
>>24207390"You... took his head? We can save him?"Hugs time.
>>24207390sounds like a plan. I think I'm ready to go help Theta get free soon. All we need to do is tell Rho and Isaac. We can do it any time.How long do you think it will be safe to leave him in stasis?Also I wonder if it'd be smart to bring my new weapon along.
>>24207431It's in stasis, we have as long as we need.
"You... took his head?""I'm never doing that again." He said. "But I couldn't carry any larger stasis devices, and I knew I'd have to hide.""How did you even get to his body in the middle of a security lockdown?""... Don't ask." He said, slumping forward. "I need a shower. And then something to eat."
>>24207390saw that coming a mile away. lets get theta in the morning
>>24207450lets help him to his room, use our map to swing by a damien stash.
>>24207450Well, take his arm and guide him where he needs to go.
>>24207450"Yes, you do."
>>24207450Help the man to his shower, and then go get him food. Nigga just saved a life deserves a little service.
>>24207450yes, I think that you do...give him some help then call rho and Issac
>>24207472>Nigga just saved a life deserves a little service.that depends on theta
>>24207450"I'll lead you to your room."Also, send Omni the design and ask if he has any ideas.
"Yes, you do." You say, and take his arm. Using the map he'd sent you earlier, you swing by a stash, both of you grabbing snacks. You made your way into his room- and you notice that Alex's bed was gone, moved into another room. More drawings covered the wall, more than there were last time you were in here."Feel free to stay as long as you want." He said, weariness in his voice as he entered the bathroom, peeling off his shirt.The shower started up, you sit on Damien's bed and look around. You send Omnissiah the design you'd scribbled up, and he said he'd think about it in response.And then you notice it. One of the paintings he'd painted, all the colors off in strange ways... but it was definitely you. Standing on a captain's chair. With a pirate ha. Behind you, Sarvesh was wearing an eyepatch with something like a rocket launcher attached to his stump instead of an arm, and Anna was grinning wickedly with a sabre- all three of you in ancient naval overcoats.
>>24207543>Standing on a captain's chair. With a pirate ha. Behind you, Sarvesh was wearing an eyepatch with something like a rocket launcher attached to his stump instead of an arm, and Anna was grinning wickedly with a sabre- all three of you in ancient naval overcoats.Fuck yeah! I know which potential future we're heading for.
>>24207543"Oh Damien! That looks beautiful! We look like real Space Pirates! Yarrr!"
>>24207543Fucking 10/10. SPACE PIRATES HOOO!
>>24207281Erm, how do we suspend the crystal in the vacuum without it touching anything? Do we have a perfect insulator to stop it from bleeding all of the heat off through conduction, or are we just going to TK it in place?
>>24207543"that looks really cool."
>>24207543"Yes, definitely following Dad's footsteps."
>>24207579We're going to use Aerogel for the insulator, probably. Unless a better material has come along in the several hundred years of development, which is likely.
>>24207543"hey I am selling this painting " then ill bring you back some food ."
>>24207543"Holy fuck dude. That's wicked sick."
>>24207579>Magnetic levitation would be easiest, as perfect insulators are incredibly expensive. It'd screw with the ion quite a bit, so you need to finagle it just right."That looks really cool!" You call. "Definitely following dad's footsteps.""What, the pirate one?" Damien called. "Nah, that's not something I Saw, just something I did for fun."
Guys, Damien just:1. Went back in time2. Fought through Armatek high security during a goddamn lockdown3. Saved the life of someone we thought we had killed4. Blinded himself doing it5. Primarily for our benefitThe man deserves to DROWN in pussy for the rest of his life. The LEAST we can do is give him a quickie in the shower.And giving him that little is probably the greatest crime against humanity that Heather will ever commit.
>>24207624"But... Dad's footsteps." pout
>>24207624"Aww... way to get my hopes up. You'll see, I'll become an awesome space pirate just to prove you wrong."
>>24207599What? If by "selling" you mean "stealing and placing in our room" then okay.
>>24207629You do make a decisive argument.Let's show the guy some appreciation, provided he's washed the blood off.
>>24207629Sure, why not.
>>24207624Snap a picture of it. Send it to Dad.
>>24207579Magnets might work depending on its physical properties. Magnetic levitation is good for this sort of thing.
>>24207629You sir make a convincing argument.
>>24207661yes that is fuck auto correct.
>>24207685Oh yessss"Like Father like Daughter -H"
>>24207629What would Anna say?
>>24207629Well yeah. It will make him feel like a badass at the very least.
>>24207707Anna does know we've slept with him before.
>>24207722We also just got through with our I like you you like me let's have a relationship discussion.
"Aww... way to get my hopes up." You say. "You'll see, I'll become an awesome space pirate just to prove you wrong.""I never said you wouldn't!" He called."Hey, I'm stealing this painting!" You call, and snap a picture of it. Then you send it to dad."Well, we're in space." Damien said. "Guess it's your first booty, Captain Heather!"You giggle, take it down and put it in Einstein's bag... and then wait, crossing and uncrossing your legs.Then finally, you sigh, peel off your shirt, and make your own way into the bathroom.Some time later, you were sitting on his bed, wrapped up in a towel. You were absolutely drenched, steam still wafting off your skin."You know." He said, lying on his bed in little but pants with a truly enormous amount of pizza. "The worst part about being blind like this is being unable to oogle. I'm definitely going to look back to now when I can see again."Then he took a few voracious bites."I haven't eaten in like, a day." He said.
>>24207629...Damien must plan these big, 3 point romantic gestures in advance. It's suspicious.
>>24207686The problem with magnetic levitation is that while the gun is in changing motion (which would be all the time in a combat situation) it's likely the crystal won't line up with the laser due to sway. Maybe if we added a gyroscope to the laser so it would always point right at it... yeah that would work.
>>24207769"Did you see Sigma?"
>>24207769"Come We must get you some food. Our hungry little hero."
>>24207769"well, better eat your fill then."is it meal time?
>>24207803>>24207811He's currently eating a ton of pizza.
>>24207803>>24207811>>24207815Can't you read, he's eating pizza.
>>24207769"You were eating three hours ago. Stupid time travel."
>>24207834>>24207825Probably misread for another word that starts with P.
>>24207769"You should do more paintings you know."
>>24207834let me rephrase that. What time is it?
>>24207864>"You know." He said, lying on his bed in little but pants with a truly enormous amount of penis.Well then.
"You were eating three hours ago. Stupid time travel." You say, and look at the clock. It was almost midnight."To be honest, when I... um, arrived backwards, I arrived way backwards, and passed out for a few hours." He said. "I wasn't spending all that time doing anything. Semiconscious nosebleeds while hiding in ventilation shafts isn't a very fun thing.""You should do more paintings, you know.""I should." He said. "I already do a lot, but nobody really cares."He suddenly set the pizza aside."Stay really still." He said, and wiped off his hands- and then he started touching you, feeling you up and down- your face, your shoulders, your body, your legs... he wasn't massaging you, but... feeling you."Let's see if I can do this, eh?" He asked, and grabbed at an easel blindly. "If you're okay with it, of course."
>>24207917"Go on, then, blind artist. Paint me."
>>24207917"Of course, i'd be flattered."
>>24207917"Draw me like one of your french girls."
>>24207917d'awwww it's like he's really blind:D
>>24207917"Chisel me like one of your french girls."
>>24207942Too hilarious not to do this one.
>>24207917well, let me strike a good pose before you try the blind man painting at least...
>>24207917"Are you sure this isn't an excuse to feel me up some more? Not that I'm complaining."
>>24207942I was just going to say that. Nothing beats references to 500-year-old movies.
"Draw me like one of your french girls.""Like... what?" He asked, not getting the reference. You pout at him, but of course, he can't see it."Of course. I'd be flattered." You say. "Are you sure this isn't an excuse to feel me up some more?""I never said it wasn't an excuse." He said, and gave various parts of you a squeeze. "It totally is."When he was done... you were less flattered than you thought you'd be. The technique was fine, and the colors were slightly off - as they always were, in his paintings- but the proportions were off quite a bit. Your head was a bit smaller, your thighs too waspy, and you couldn't get *that* much amount of cleavage without a push-up bra at the least. Somehow, though, he was able to pull off the steam coiling from your body, and texture of the skin, and the way your lips parted just enough..."How's it look?" He asked.
>>24208015"Um, I don't think I'm that curvy."
needs a little bit of work. porportions are a tad off. But everything else is perfect. I hereby pronounce you an Artisté!
>>24208015"You sure have an optimistic outlook on my girl-bits."
>>24208015"Quite good for a blind guy."
>>24208015"the proportions are off, but everything else is very accurate."
>>24208015"I'm pretty sure artistic license doesn't cover my - uh - assets."
>>24208055Oh, this is a good way to put it.
"You sure have an optimistic outlook on my girl-bits." You say. "I'm pretty sure artistic license doesn't cover my - uh - assets.""The less things that cover your assets the better." He said, and chuckled. "Well, I can't really fix it since I can't really see it. In my head, you look like you should." He said."Quite good for a blind guy.""I thought so." He said. "Which means this is kind of an ironic hobby, come to think of it."He chuckled, and put the easel away, laying back on his bed. "I'll be able to fix it when I can see again."
>>24208109"Why fix what's finished?"
>>24208109"how are you going to break the news to Rho and Isaac?"
>>24208109"Why fix when you can just paint a new one?"
>>24208109"Explaining your adventure to the past to Rho and Isaac is going to be really difficult, by the way. I don't envy you on that one, but I'll help you out if you need it.Just... I would probably do it before they find the head in the stasis pod and get completely the wrong idea."
"Why fix it when you can just paint a new one?""Well, if you let me I will, but I still prefer to fix things.""How are you going to break the news to Rho and Isaac?" You ask."I... don't know." He said. "Maybe after Theta is rescued, I'll say, um, 'surprise'? Or somethin', I don't know."He started slurring, lying back, eyes closed. Seemed he was falling asleep.
give him a kiss goodnight and lets head back to the workshop. We have a gun to make!Leave Einstien behind to guide Damien if he needs it.
>>24208207Tuck him into bed, get towelled off and dressed, and let him sleep.
>>24208207let him rest, put away the pizza and cover him up.looks like he'll likely won't be able to guide our plan to save Theta.get dressed.we should get some rest too and tell the other about what Lambda told us in the morning.
What can actually be done about Lambda? He literally doesn't want to live with his power. If his body is fixed, the second he wakes up he's just going to die again because he needs massive amounts of life support, and then we are back where we started.
>>24208207"well, that just means that we need to get theta then..."put our clothes on, run a comb through our hair and go and prepare for that, pick up some tazers from anna if we have our ship hull here then we build ship and go in that if not then we get the shuttle.<anna prep the wyvern><Issac, rho, I need to do something to clear my head. lets go get your brother.>
>>24208207Get dressed. Take him to bed. Go make dem gunz
>>24208314>>24208327Gun first, then we can go get Theta, and in extension, Sigma.Dakka will help with that one, though.
You give him a kiss. "Goodnight." You say."Night." He mumbled. "And I was the guy in the mask. Turned off th' camera."You toweled yourself off, and pulled on your underclothes, and he continued mumbling."Then heard the lullaby. Was beautiful." He continued, his eyes entirely closed, now. "Might be blind for the rest of my life. Totally worth it. Poor kid."And then he was unconscious.You made your way down to the workshop to find Anna and Omnissiah arguing."No, no, this crystal can hold an infinite amount of heat." Anna said. "Why can't we use it? Just find some sort of super-insulator or something...""It would be better to make a laser to heat up the plasma directly." Omnissiah said. "The crystal is functionally useless, since you'll be unable to heat anything past the melting point of the barrel, else the entire weapon would melt when you fired it."
>>24208445"Oh my, engineering arguments. What's the problem?"
>>24208225This. We might try to contact the prodigal son using technopathy again
>>24208445"Sounds like you two are getting along about as well as expected.The crystal is there because heating the crystal in a vacuum is more efficient than heating the gas where it is free to lose heat to convection. It allows an overall higher temperature to be achieved with less power input, at the cost of a short cycling period between each firing. Long story short, SCIENCE!"
>>24208445>why does Damien seem to perfect?>why is that bothering me so much!?"hit me with all your engineering troubles!"
>>24208495It also allows variable heat settings. If you really want to just straight up vaporise tanks, you can just have the crystal charge for a longer time and achieve a higher plasma temperature.Though if that is the case, you *really* need to make sure that the phaeron plasma doesn't touch the insides of the gun itself, because it will be like setting off a handheld nuclear bomb if it does.
>>24208445Shoot off a message to the station techs asking how their analysis of the other thing we made is coming along as well.
>>24208495this sounds like the perfect reasoning. the better materials we can make the barrel of course, the hotter the crystal can be made.
"Oh my, engineering arguments. What's the problem?""Anna has decided that the crystal is an absolutely necessary component to the ion laser." Omnissiah said. "When I believe it is not.""The crystal is there because heating the crystal in a vacuum is more efficient than heating the gass where it is free to lose heat to convection." You say. "It allows an overall higher temperature to be achieved with less power input, at the cost of a short cycling period between each firing." You say. "Long story short, science!"Omnissiah was silent for a moment as he ticked."And then how do you expect to keep the crystal from touching the walls of the chamber? There are no perfect thermal insulators." He asked. "At least, ones that will last up to the heat you intend on charging the crystal to, most of the time."
Make the barrel out of crystal...
>>24208598"[Insert however the crystal was stopped from touching the walls of the canister here]"
>>24208603Better yet, make the barrel out of that material we made with the blackhole today. It'll be too dense to drill the shape, though, so we'll need to get Sarv/Rho to teleport away bits to hollow it out.
>>24208598doesn't the crystal only radiate heat by convection? alternately>>24208612
>>24208598"Well it's suspended inside the canister without touching the walls. We could just scavenge the canister for the crystal chamber."
>>24208598Maybe you could use magnetic repulsion to suspend it in a vacuum?
>>24208598Hold it in position via however it was kept from touching the walls of the container when we were experimenting on it?
>>24208529Ah, but therein lies the genius stroke, the gas should never actually touch the barrel of the weapon or the sides of the crystal chamber, because of the electromagnets, allowing potentially infinite temperatures to be achieved with enough charge time.The crystal has supposedly unlimited capacity to retain heat, meaning energy you input will literally be stored as heat forever, until you dump the phaeron gas and then launch it.
>>24208658We can't heat the input gas too much though or we'll overcome the nuclear binding energy and it'll just be a mixture of atomic particles. The magnets'll attract or repel them and wreck the inside of the gun.
"Well, it's suspended inside the canister without touching the walls, by diamagnetic levitation." You say. "We could just scavenge the canister for the crystal chamber.""... That would work." Omnissiah said. "It would be very complex to keep it stationary and keep the ion gas from rampaging around the chamber. But if you put additional ion thrusters... here, here, and here, inside the chamber, that should allow you to propel the ion gas much easier." Omnissiah said, and looked about the workshop."I believe we have all the parts we require right here."Then Anna shrugged."Well, should we get to work? I might get to sleep for the night if not." She said.
>>24208691Point.I don't know what temperature you need to reach to cause plasma to break down into subatomic soup though.
>>24208714"Do you really need to ask?"
>>24208714"Let's get started!"Technology tunnel vision activate!
>>24208726We should be fine as long as we don't exceed 1K celcius. At that level we'll just be stripping lots of outer-shell electrons from the gas.
>>24208714"Yep! Let me just check one last thing!"See if they're done analyzing that black sphere we made.
>>24208726Probably high enough that we don't really need to consider it.Firing it at that temperature would probably cause the nearby atmosphere to undergo nuclear fusion and kill everything in a large radius anyway.
... it would be neat to fire something like that while in vacuum. maybe at the devourer if it ever decides to attack say, Anna.
>>24208751>>24208726We could probably check with some of the researchers about this actually.
>>24208791We could do it right now, but it depends on the amount of gas we're inputting and what it's made of.
>>24208770>>24208726>>24208751You guys know that plasma is still just plasma at 100 million degrees celsius, right?If we were able to fire the weapon at that temperature we would probably destroy everything on the planet, if not the planet itself.Plasma breaking down into subatomic particles is not something we should really be concerned about.
>>24208714"It's late, and we don't want to make any mistakes with something this dangerous. I think it would be best to leave it to tomorrow."
You call up Keen, and send him a message to tell you when they're done analyzing the black sphere, before turning to Anna and giving her a grin."Do you really need to ask?" You ask.Anna sighed. "I thought so." She responded, and you started stripping the canister.Some hours later, you had all of the individual parts complete. Omnissiah was tinkering with the canister holding the crystal, and flipping the switch, the diamagenetic superconducters started up, and the crystal started spinning, very slowly."I canted them this way so that any phaeron gas in the area will be caught up with it." Omnissiah said. "It should spin more quickly in a vacuum.""And I *think* I got the laser bit done." Anna said, pulling away from her cannibalized laser weapon. Then she stretched and yawned. "It's almost three AM, though. We should get some sleep."
go on, Ill be just one more minute.
>>24208850"Sure thing, let's assemble and test it in the morning?"
>>24208850"sleep is for the weak!"
>>24208850"Aaaaaah, but I wanna finish it. Demiurg Commander seven has only made me want to build it even more! Think of the Ion laser! I'll build a massive one for your ship, and mine."
>>24208850"I can't wait!"Sleepily kiss them both goodnight, and stumble off to bed."Today was a huge day, if I forgot to wake up tomorrow then don't bother sending someone after me."
>>24208850you get some sleep, death, undeath, heads in jars, and deathlazers are gonna prevent me from sleeping anyway.>>24208871(but make this into a sort of battle-cry)>enter design fuge exiting it only to ask "wheRE THE FUCK DID MY POWER-DRILL GO!"
>>24208832So we should be aiming for like 2-3K temperatures, I would imagine. Beyond that, the general temperature of the area would get too hot, too quickly.
>>24208850"Yeah I don't want to blast half of the station because I fall asleep in the middle of the firing test."
"I can't wait!" You say, and sleepily kiss both of them. "Today was a huge day, so if I forget to wake up tomorrow, then don't bother sending someone after me.""Alright." Anna said, and waved, making her way to her room."I'll watch more tridvision." Omnissiah said. "Though I should say, you have very strange tridvision shows on your drone. I don't think human women and mzlp'hack*tha males are designed to reproduce."Anna stopped and turned for a moment.You found your cheeks burning.
>>24208953that was for research purposes Omni, not for entertainment, also dammit I thought I hid that(those) file(s)
>>24208953"Uh... Thatmusthavebeenavirus. Yeah, a virus."
>>24208953"Uhm, Sarvesh mentioned that kind of thing had happened before and I was curious about the actual dynamics of it, so he sent those to me."
>>24208953"That's the last time I loan Sarvesh a drone!"
>>24208953"Um. Uh. Research."
>>24208953"It's just... Um..."
>>24208953"NEVER LOOK AT A GIRLS STUFF WITHOUT PERMISSION THOSE WERE FOR RESEARCH PURPOSES I NEVER EVEN GOT TO WATCH THEM SHUTUP SHUTUP SHUTUP"And then Technopath him into quiet for a few hours.
>>24208953"hey look a distraction." manifest a bear
>>24208953"Uh... Looks like I need to update the spam filter, all kinds of crazy stuff getting through."
>>24208953pffffhahahahahaHonestly half expected to see >End of Threadafter that sentence
>>24208953Squeak out 'I was curious?"
"Um, uh, science?"
>>24208953"Uh those? They were just for educating purposes really! I just never met a Centaur before and this is more polite than asking Sarvesh directly!"
>>24208953"Omni, you shouldn't look at my secret research material."
>>24208953"I- I was just curious okay, I'm sure everyone's looked at them at some point."
>>24208953... I was curious how those types of things worked....its prehensile
that's what I get for not encrypting it
>>24208953"T-those were for educational purposes!"
I forgot those were even there
"I uh- it- um-." You say. "... Science?""What about science?""Uhm, Sarvesh mentioned that kind of thing had happened before and I was curious about the actual dynamics of it, so he sent those to me. I-I was curious.""I see." He responded. "Interesting. I wonder how much intraspecial relations there are. I shall have to check the Extranet."Anna promptly turned around and left, cheeks bright red.You did the same, making your way to your room, and crawling into bed. This late, you didn't even want to change into pajamas.When you woke up, you felt someone groping you. Opening your eyes and peering down, you saw Rho, cuddling up next to you, asleep, face in your chest and hand on your bum.Einstein chirped, and it looked like you'd recieved a message some time late last night.>http://pastebin.com/CaAF0yS8And in the other bed, Summer was snoring, a puppy and a kitten curled up in the fur of her belly.
>>24209127Sigh.Roll Rho around, so we're the big spoon, then cuddle her and go back to sleep
>>24209127Fire off a response to Manus: "Anna got a response on the previous crystal by heating it. You could try that."
>>24209127We have to pet them. For Lambda.But maybe later, wouldn't want to ruin rhogropes.
>>24209149seconding thisfall back asleep humming a lullaby...
>>24209127gently TK Rho off of us, then get up and have some breakfast
>>24209088I think most of us did.>>24209127Considering the last time Rho sleep-teleported, perhaps we should wake her up gently? To minimize her embarrassment?Also, looks like she's got a bit of a thing for our maybe-sister.
>>24209127"Bleh.Just a few more minutes."
>>24209149Seriously she's gonna drown in our boobage someday.
>>24209127"Gotta get up and blast some asteroids!"Oh man it'd be awesome if that sphere was some sort of gravity-emitter. That'd completely remove the need for ion-engines on our ship
>>24209152The response should also include "Do you people ever sleep?!?"
"Bleh." You say. "Just a few more minutes." You say, and close your eyes again. Then you open them up a fraction, and technopath with your omnitool, using it to send Dr. Manus a message.<Anna got a response on the previous crystal by heating it. You could try that,> You sent. <And seriously, do you people ever sleep?><Who sleeps when there's SCIENCE to do?!?!> Came the response. Rho mumbled something, and curled up closer.You open your eyes to see a flash, and Summer's manifestation giggling. She was... holding a camera, and Rho was still snuggled up against you, face in your cleavage.
>>24209180I wonder if she teleports herself onto Heather or just climbs in the bed.
>>24209250Stick tongue out at her."You're just jealous of Rho."
>>24209250tell the camera to delete the image then shut down with a battery fault"summer, you forgot something...">>24209261sleep teleporting was mentioned...
>>24209250TK, smush Summer's manifestation on the other side of Rho, and take a photo with Einstein!
>>24209272>Ask the nice cameraftfy
>>24209272nah, its all in good fun.
>>24209250>>24209250Let her take the picture, it will be adorable.
>>24209276>implying the camera is not a lecherous old man at heart.But nah, let her take the picture, it's just a picture.
>>24209304Yeah, let's let her keep it.
>>24209295I think that boat has sailed.Also, >>24209250I second "You're jus' jealous."
>>24209250Fuck breakfast, we've got a gun to build
>>24209250"Careful who you send that to, they might die from all the cute."
"Summer, you forgot something..." You say, and reach out to the camera...As the picture printed itself out of the front of the camera. She took it, and started waving the photo around in the air."Forgot what?" She said, sweetly. "That I know all of your strengths and weaknesses? Hehehehh." She said."You're just jealous." You say."I could just manifest a copy of you." Summer said, and stuck out her tongue.
>>24209335"But that's the *definition* of cheating. Meanybutt." make a cute pouty face
>>24209335"You could, but it just wouldn't be the same. My cleavage is too magnificent to be replicated."
you'd replace me that easily? lip quiver.
>>24209335"The copy would snuggle up to me as well if last time was any indication."
>>24209335But then I wouldn't get to hug you! How cruel.What time is it? Can I stay in bed today?
>>24209335"I doubt you could accurately replicate my massive breasts."
>>24209335good point, I could claim that that is a manufactured image. or...black hole it, then that dinosaur camera
>>24209335"If it ends up on the notice board, I'm coming for you."
>>24209335"Hey, can I have a look?"There are old ways of destroying evidence.
>>24209335"And then I could say that you have been doing.... things with my manifestation."
>>24209394..."and not in the nice way either, itching powder is too good for you..."
"The copy would snuggle up to me as well, if last time was any indication.""... Good point." She said, and manifested a copy of you, who started to climb into the bed as well. She raised the camera again and took another picture as the manifestation snuggled with you and Rho."What time is it? Can I stay in bed today?""It's breakfast." She said. "If you're okay not eating, you could nap, but..."Then she knelt and nudged Rho."Hey, Rho, wanna go get something to eat?""Mmmyes." She mumbled, and rubbed at her eyes, extricating herself from your bed and stretching. "... Where's isaac?"
>>24209431"Breakfast as well, probably."
>>24209431Don't know. I haven't seen him for ages, since he went outside.
>>24209431oh my.... he kind of disappeared after hearing about lambda.
Reach out to see what Isaac is up to.<You ok out there?>
>>24209431"Dunno, just got up myself snugglebunny. I'll check."Use a bit of Telepathy to locate him.
>>24209431"Dunno."Blink a few times, then open eyes wide."Oh, right, I have to finish making my plasma gun today!"
>>24209431Make out with our clone. Put on a show.
>>24209431"Hey! Wanna see my Ion laser?"
>>24209431Might as well get up now, There's SCIENCE! to do!
>>24209491>Across the station there is a disturbance in the force as Anna, Sarvesh, Damien and Alex all look up in unison, knowing that somehow, somewhere, something really hot is happening.
>ignore MIA, do SCIENCE!Yeah no, <Isaac?>
You kiss Heather, and she pulls back, eyes wide."I um." She said, blushing madly. "Uh, I'm Summer. Controlling the manifestation, I mean. I can do that. So uh.""That's hot." Rho said, and giggled.You close your eyes, and reach out toward the asteroid field...<You okay out there?> You ask.<Yes.> Epsilon said, sitting on one of the asteroids, his hand outstretched. As you watched, yet another asteroid suddenly shrunk, crushing down with incredible force, becoming a small black sphere the size of a golfball.<I'm perfectly fine.> He added. Almost two to three dozen of the spheres circled around him.He didn't sound it. He sounded... angry. Cold. <I just have Armatek to destroy, and everything will be alright.>
>>24209557<Don't let yourself become a weapon. That's what Armatek wanted in the first place.>
>>24209557<I, um, have some good news. Damien went back in time, and he, uh, stole Lambda's head. So, we just need to get Theta now.><But hey, you're doing the blackhole thing!>
>>24209557<yeah I feel that way sometimes too.><do bring those hyper-dense spheres with you when you come back too I might have a use for them...>
>>24209557"Hey. Hey Isaac. Guess what. I'm making out with a clone of myself!""And if that doesn't cheer you up, you should come and shoot rocks with my experimental deathlaser later! It's gonna be awesome!"So Summer: Pout.
>>24209557<Listen, I don't want to get your hopes up, but Damien managed to... save Lambda's head with his time travel and cryogenics. It's possible that Theta could...revive him.>
>>24209557<...We should get Theta free next.><Anyway... don't become what they wanted you to>
>>24209609>>24209586maybe we should wait with that news...
>>24209557I have a feeling that I'd only piss him off so I go to sleep now. Bye!
>>24209557"Oh? But do you really mind making out with me?"
>>24209557<Destroying Armatek won't bring him back. But Theta might.>
>>24209557snickerWe just gave Summer her first taste of Heather. She's spoled for anyone else now.I think we should tell him about Lambda now.<Damien kinda bent the laws of time and space. Lamba's head is in the medbay, in stasis. All we need to do is to get Theta here and he'll be back better then ever. Maybe we can even solve his calorie problem.>
>>24209621Why? It's better we tell him now, than him find his god damn severed head by himself and assume the worst.
>>24209557What kind of a world is it when a girl can't make out with herself?
>>24209557<Hey, cool, hyper-dense spheres.Issac, going off on a murderous revenge filled rampage won't solve anything, you won't feel better, you won't like yourself more, and you won't get to see me make out with my own clone out there."
>>24209557"You didn't seem so bashful last time this happened..."
>>24209586This. Though we had ought to tell rho both at the same time.
>>24209641Not a very good one.
>>24209557"It's happened before, remember? The catnip?"<And then you'll be exactly what Armatek wanted you to be.. You'll get your vengeance, I'll make sure of that, but don't let it cloud your vision. You're a person, not a tool, and not a weapon.>
"Oh? But do you really mind making out with me?""Not really." Heather said. "It's just kind of weird when you're doing it with me in your body."<Don't let yourself become a weapon. That's what Armatek wanted in the first place.><If I let that stop me, then I'm letting them control me.> He said.<Destroying Armatek won't bring him back.><I know.> He said.<But Theta might.>Epsilon paused, and lowered his arm. <Theta can't bring someone back if they're braindead. Too much bloodloss and too much time dead will make it impossible.>You close your eyes for a moment, and take a deep breath.<"I um, have some good news."> You say, mentally and vocally.<What is it?>"Hmm?" Rho asked."... Wait, wait." Summer said. "You want to... with me? I mean... I would, but..."<"Damien went back in time, and he, uh, stole Lambda's head. So, we just need to get Theta now."><He has Lambda preserved?> Epsilon asked, frozen. You saw him chuckle, though you didn't hear it.
>>24209697"Sorry, I was telepathing that news to Isaac at the same time. What did you say, Summer?"
>>24209697"I think I missed something, what are we doing now?"<Time travel, it's weird. Come back inside, it might be funny.>
>>24209722I think she just misinterpreted that deep breath.
>>24209697<Yep!>Whisper to not!Heather"I wouldn't mind experimenting, Summer."
>>24209697<Come inside and grab some breakfast, or help me build a thing.>
>>24209738>sleeping with Damien>chatted up Anna>seducing SummerOh Heather, you're insatiable.
>>24209738>"I wouldn't mind experimenting, Summer."But Anna dammit
<Yes, hes down in the medbay right now, in a cryo egg. I wanted to finish my gun first though before anything else. But it was almost done so it won't take long. Maybe Rho can get those uniforms.>To Summer:Blink. Umm maybe? I... wouldn't ... mind. You know, if you want to.Summer is a lovely tigress!
>>24209697"Hmm? Are we still talking about me making out with myself? Do you really want to give Damien (and Anna) a nosebleed?"With the part about Anna said in a whisper.
>>24209752Anna hasn't started anything yet. As long as Summer knows it's just fooling around (She never gets any, you know.) it should be fine.
>>24209733Yeah, but we're giving her a chance to correct herself gracefully.>>24209722second>>24209697"<I'm sorry I couldn't tell you sooner, there was time travelling happening and it was strange.>"<Anyway, come in for breakfast.>
>>24209763>Blink. Umm maybe? I... wouldn't ... mind. You know, if you want to.Summer is a lovely tigress!Anna. So no.
<Time travel, it's weird.> You say. <Come back inside, it might be funny.><Alright.>"I think I missed something." You say. "I was telepathing that news to Isaac at the same time. What are we doing now?""Uh, nothing." Summer said, and both of her manifestations vanished.Rho giggled. "So he'll be okay? Lambda? And also, Summer wants to bone, but beside that, we should go find Theta."Epsilon came into your room, to see the mussed up bedding and Rho snuggling with you.Then he took a deep breath. "So, let's go. Right now, even."
>>24209785>"So he'll be okay? Lambda? And also, Summer wants to bone, but beside that, we should go find Theta."Rho, master of subtlety.
>>24209785Classes today. And lasers. And tired.Can we go after classes?
>>24209785"Now? I'm, uh, not ready yet. Plus I need to finish building this thing. Which should help us when we do go."
>>24209785"Summer what? Oh." Then just giggle a lot and get up for food
>>24209785"Breakfast first. Unlike you, I run out of energy."
>>24209785"Summer wants to... oh..."Time for Heather blushing.
>>24209802She POMF=3's Heather's bed like every other night. This isn't really a surprise.
I wanted to finish my gun... but I guess it wouldn't do much good if we're going incognito.But first breakfast'path Summer : <I wouldn't mind something with you... if you want that is. >
Breakfast first.We might need to call on Anna for transport.Gun can wait. It's just a matter of assembling it now anyway.
"Summer wants to... oh." You say, after a moment."It's obvious." Rho said, and then whispered 'touch fluffy tail' in your ear."I'm, uh, not ready yet. Plus I need to finish building my gun." You tell Isaac. "Which should help us when we do go. And we have classes today. Can we go after classes?"Isaac took a deep, labourous breath."Yeah, sure, let's go after classes." He said. "Or after you finish your gun. can you take us, Rho?""Sure!" she said, and stood on one of the black spheres Isaac still had following him. It didn't move, at all, and she used them as steps up. "Let's go get some food.""Right." He said. You got to your feet, yawned, and made your way into the cafeteria.Today was probably going to be another big day.>End of thread!
>>24209924Character interviews now? Perhaps Damien?
>>24209950>Character interview with DamienSo basically a post full of answers before we've asked any questions.
>>24209924Fuckin Isaac, delaying our gunbuilding.
>>24209966Exabyte could probably do it as well. The questions would all be about sex. They always are.
Interview with Kaliel?
>>24209950Sorry, no, because 4chan keeps fucking up for me. It's irritating and I'd just get frustrated.>>24209988Hahaha, maybe next time.
>>24209968To be fair, this is a time-sensitive thing. A time-sensitive thing that will have the end result of bringing his dead friend back to life. A dead friend that he was all but plotting violent revenge for while floating around stewing in his own thoughts in space all night. And the longer we wait, the more time the guys we have to go deal with are freaking out about a masked man showing up in their highest security facility completely unannounced, decapitating one of their most important psionic assets and running off with his head. One dude. They're probably going to be rethinking their security protocols and whatnot something fierce after that one.And we go off and say "Yeah, we can obviously go, but we have to do FAKE SCHOOL stuff first." Because we haven't blown THAT off before.
>>24210037I was of the belief that we were just going to get breakfast, then we were going.
>>24210094>Can we go after classes?">Isaac took a deep, labourous breath.>"Yeah, sure, let's go after classes."
>>24210037I don't think it's that urgent: We have Lambda's brain on ice, and Isaac needs time to calm down anyway.
hoenstly I think we should skip as well. This is a kid's life waiting. Breakfast first though since our abilities are dependant on our energy.
>>24210129I'd rather just get the gun done and bring that with us.
Damn 4chan, get your shit together.Also, supporting breakfast, then kidnapping Theta, classes are for nerds, and we're a slut, not a nerd. Well, both, I guess. Only when it comes to building things.
>>24210204>Has slept with one person and flirted with a handful of others>SlutIt's like I'm really on /a/.
>>24209924Wow. Rho is totally a perv. I'm going to call that right now.And I think if we decide to bone Summer, it would be much harder to get with Anna after that. What with her having been badly burned in a relationship before, she might think we'd be too fickle to stay with her, and not want to even start anything with us.
>>24210129>>24210149Yeah, the gun could be helpful, but we should skip classes.That said, taking untested equipment into an operation is a recipe for disaster, let alone a highly experimental plasma jet cannon that can potentially act as a fusion bomb.
>>24210564Yeah but that's the best thing about it. If we're surrounded or whatever we can just overcharge the crystal and threaten the fuck out of them.
>>24210773I'm pretty sure they would call that bluff.
