>Previous threads can be found at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psion%20Quest>Einstein was hovering somewhere near. You knew you could check his data at any time: http://pastebin.com/CaAF0yS8Your name is Heather Leery, and you are in the comfiest place known to sapience. You're lying in a warm pile of pillows with a thick blanket over you, and everything keeps shaking slightly now or then, almost rocking you. Everything was warm, as if it was being heated intentionally, and you felt as cozy as you'd ever been. Making you even cozier was the tell-tale sound of something being welded, and then ratcheting, and the sound did nothing but comfort you.And then Einstein chirped, signalling that it was time to wake up and that he had a new tip of the day.>http://pastebin.com/CaAF0yS8You opened your eyes and peeled the thick blanket off of your head so you could look around, and you were in your workshop. Then what was moving you? You looked- and almost pressed your face into brownish-maroon carapace, leathery and warm to the touch. You were on Sarvesh's back, covered in pillows while he worked on something. He didn't seem to notice you were awake yet, working on his top secret project, taking apart the demiurg bubble drive. Whatever he was doing, he had his personacom connected to Omnissiah, and they were talking to one another.
>>24279545>Bumping to fix mysql error.
Rolled 18>>24279545hnnnng Drawfags, drawfags please
>>24279545Slowly take a look at what he's working on. As sneakily as possible.
>>24279545Mumble something about decabulators, reverse ionic pulse thrusts, and other sufficiently techy terms as we get up.Don't peek at the project, he is trying to make it a nice surprise.
>>24279622use Einstein to get a better look at what they are doing
>>24279622Yes, this"Don't worry, I won't look." grumble mumble waking up overrated grumble
>>24279545it would be rude to spy on his project, let's extract ourselves with a good portion of the pillows and go get a shower or something.keep Sigma's message in quarantine and transfer it to a different console if we do want to examine it.
>>24279545Be tired. Then suddenly wake up with the realization that the hull might have arrived.
>>24279545Just stay there being comfy for a bit. Maybe message some people.Sigma: "You'll have to do better than that to get at the stash of the great Pirate King Heather!"A basic update to Luna that Jilly seems back to normal and thanks for telling us what to do when we didn't know what was going on.We haven't messaged Damien's little sister since we got her address I don't think.And what happened to that traffic control guy.
>Write an entire post>Suddenly consensus turns all the way around. Thanks.First thing you do is message Luna, and give her an update and a thanks about Jilly, and next you write up a response to Kat's message. Then, grumbling and mumbling, you sit up on Sarvesh's back, peeling off the pillow. "Morning. Don't worry, I won't look.""Alright." Sarvesh said, and set down the device. It was large enough that you'd have troubles carrying it, but Sarvesh's pincers didn't seem to have a problem. You felt one of his lower arms pat you on the head."Morning." He said. "How are you feeling? You passed out last night talking about reverse ionic phase pulses. Which... aren't a thing, I don't think."
>>24279699"They are, actually. Something about stars, I think." flurgle, "You've coffee?"
>>24279699"Well, I'll *make* them a thing."
>>24279699>nonsensical scientific mumbling is a sign we stayed up far to long."we stayed up THAT late huh?"
>>24279699what of course they are I juts got to invent them first "i am off to get some breakfast"
>>24279699"They will be! Anyway, I'm feeling good. I didn't think anybody could be more comfy to sleep on than Summer. Maybe if I used her instead of the pillows on your back..."
>>24279587I'm a much better writefag, but here.
>>24279713"Wait, stars?" grumble "Sleep is the enemy, bromobenzene ion gas-phase." shake head in an attempt to clear it, "coffee?" *puppy eyes*
"They are, actually. Something about stars, I think. We stayed up that late, huh?" You mumble. "You've coffee?""I've coffee." He responded, twisting around his entire torso. It was always eerie, seeing his torso facing his own abdomen. It felt like it was someone's head pointing straight backwards. He had a mug in hand. "And we stayed up until about four AM." He said. "And when you fell asleep, I got you some pillows so you would be comfortable.""I'm feeling good." You say, take a deep drink, and stretch. "I didn't think anybody could be more comfy to sleep on than summer. Maybe if I used her instead of the pillows on your back...""You started to complain in your sleep when I stopped working." He said, and chuckled. "It was almost as if the sound of ratchets lulled you to sleep. Also, your hull came in."
>>24279699"Not yet they aren't.Coffee please? You're very comfy and warm, I slept really well."Give him a hug.
>>24279768"I like mechanical sounds, grew up around them. They're comforting."Give Sarvesh a long hug. "Now let's see my new hull."
>>24279768Leap out of Sarvesh bed, run towards the hub full tilt.
>>24279768"what can i say, i was practically born in a worksho-... did. did you just say what i thought you said?"and when he repeats we set off hyper Heather.
>>24279749Well it's better than I could do.>>24279768Hullelujah!
>>24279768Run to it.Embrace the hull like a long lost friend.
>>24279768"Where is it right now? I no longer need to eat."
"What can I say, I was practically born in a worksho-.."You pause. "Did... did you just say what I thought you said?"You're about to spring off of his back when he chuckled, and with a flash of blue light, your ears popped, and suddenly you were in the bay where you'd planned to make your ship.Sitting in one of the corners, wrapped up tightly, huge crates sat. Crates full of polycarbon steel, a more flexible alloyed fullerite frame... It was your hull!"... Heh, we could probably get started now." Sarvesh said. "Omnissiah's directing the maintenance drones here. Sorry I'm not good enough to teleport those, too. But I *can* teleport in some food if you want it."
>>24279856"If you can supply the food I can build!"
Rolled 63time to descend into a haze of technology. Rolling for technopathic miracles.
>>24279856Shhh, no words. Only dreams now.And by that I mean get to work.
>>24279856"that would be great!" fawn over the crates for a bit, message ALL the people that our ship hull has arrived.maybe in an excited but soft voice since people might still be sleeping.
>>24279856"Can you teleport it straight into my stomach?"Time to tech.
>>24279856'Accidentily' project excited ravings across station.Then enter tech fugue and begin shipcraft.
>>24279856"Yes, food. I am probably going to forget to eat if not reminded.It's going to be beautiful Sarvesh, absolutely beautiful."Excitedly run around a bit before giving Sarvesh a hug and some kisses and giddily bouncing off again.
>>24279856"Oohyohoyh."Open every crate simultaneously with TK.
>>24279856"What is this food you speak of? We've no time for distactions, the first ship of Pirate King Heather awaits building!"
"If you supply the food, I can build!" You say."I can also supply the tools." Sarvesh said, and with a flash of light, a plasma welder appeared."Can you teleport it straight into my stomach?" You ask, vaulting off of his back and taking the welder in hand. "... I don't think that's a good idea." He said, unstrapping the pillows from his back, as they vanished into blue light. "You should... at least chew."With your will, you tear the top of every crate open, with a loud rending noise, and you quickly pull them open, laying your eyes on the colorless grey polycarbon hull."The frame comes first." Sarvesh said. "Then the insulation, then inner frame, inner plating, life support, outer plating..."You shush him by giving him a hug and a kiss on the carapace. "It's going to be beautiful, Sarvesh, absolutely beautiful!"An hour later, you were inexplicably covered in grease, once again working in your pajamas, while Sarvesh held up one of the massive alloyed frame pieces, as you welded it into place, the maintenance bots holding up the other frame pieces. Once those were done, Sarvesh let go with a huff- even he was getting tired."Let's... let's go eat, and then go to class." Sarvesh said. "... You... you will go to class, right?"
>>24279905This one.Everybody needs to know that we're building our ship RIGHT NOW. It is the most important thing.
>>24279958"Food? Classes?These concepts do not make sense to me."
>>24279958>"... You... you will go to class, right?"sigh, I probably should.
>>24279958"mumble mumble. yea... I should also clean up"
>>24279958Look at him confused, and then go back to work.
>>24279958"Oh yeah, class..."Now we are a sad Heather, for we can not finish what we have started.
>>24279958"What's class? What's food? There is only spaceships.I'm kidding. I'll at least get some food with everyone. Not sure about class."Go with Sarvesh to get food. Don't change out of our grease stained pajamas, we do our best work in them.
>>24279958"Both are alien entities at this current moment."Let's use technopathy to control the drones and keep them building whilst we're eating and class-ing.
>>24279958"But... my baby?" puppy eyes 120% attack."...fine." And then sleep through class because tired from working on ship
>>24279958we really should get to classsee if we can remember to get cleaned up and properly dressed.
>>24280017Screw that, we should be staring into space and doodling pictures of spaceships and design diagrams in our workbooks.
>>24279958"Yeah I probably should... But I don't want to!"
>>24279958"Class is for suckers without spaceships. So proclaims Pirate Warlord King Heather!"
You look at him, rather confused."Food? Classes?" You ask. "What are those? There is only spaceships."Sarvesh continued to look at you, then crossed his arms."But... my baby." You say, pouting at him.His expression didn't change."But...""... Heather, you need to eat." He said. "If you don't, then I'm going to finish the ship myself, while you have to sleep, and you won't have the chance to work on it at *all*.""... Fine." You say, grumbling, and you make your way to your room to take a shower. When you come back out, Sarvesh had strange saucer-shaped pieces of chocolate. You bit into one, and there looked to be a bread layer under the chocolate, and sweet jam core."More centaur food!" He said, as Summer padded out of the room, yawning. "Morning!""Feel free to have one." Sarvesh said, and tossed one to her. She nommed on it."Thith is good." She said.
>>24280117>GODDAMNIT. This is me.
>>24280117Eat it the centaur way! (using TK)
>>24280117"No talking! We gotta eat faster so we can get back to work!"
>>24280117"thanks its great!" change into jump suite so we can run back to the ship after class.
>>24280117He resisted the pout, that's impressive."Thanks for taking care of me. Summer, I'm making a spaceship!"
>>24280117sheepishly say"thanks, Sarvesh."then turn to Summer and tell her all about our new soon to be space ship.seems the pout won't work on someone who is genuinely concerned about us.>we name our ship the "Golden throne">which Omnissiah can plug in to.>not a serious proposal but sort of fun.
Rolled 21.... I have an idea on how to both go to class and work on the ship at the same time. The drones. Use the drones, become the drones. BE the drones.
>>24280117"Thanks Sarvesh. I hope the classes won't be long today." >Guys I have a Dave David Davidson idea: What if we turn Devourer into first Zerg and make him reproduce? We could control the swarm with our psi powers and therefore we would have an army.
>>24280238we don't have any control over him whatsoever
>>24280238except we have no control what-so-ever over him.
"Thanks for taking care of me." You say, biting into one. "Of course." He said, and started shredding his own saucer, as the three of you made your way to the cafeteria.With it in mouth, you turn to Summer. "Summer, I'm making a spaceship!""Hooray! any way I could help? I could manifest mechanics! Or, um, try to!" She said, grinning up at you. "Is that why you're wearing a jumpsuit?""So I can run back to the ship after class.""Not wasting any time, huh." Anna said, as the three of you entered the cafeteria. Sarvesh tossed her one of the saucers, and she frowned at it.
>>24280238That is not a Dave idea. Dave ideas were bad. Sometimes they were suicidal. But I don't think they ever threatened to end all life everywhere.
Besides mind control sounds more a telepathic power....Jilly Shall be the Zerg Queen.Her tongues will be the symbol of this proto-zerg
>>24280267"Eat it! Don't tell your father. This is a day for celebration!"
>>24280267"Ish goob!" nom nom nom
>>24280267"Try it! It's good.And are you really surprised? You should come down to the bay and help out. All of you!"
>>24280267"try it, if you don't like it I'll sacrifice myself and eat instead"
>>24280267"These are really good. You should try some."
>>24280267Eat it. You have to be full of energy so I can use you later.
"Ish goob!" You say, and inhale one. "Eat it! Don't tell your father. You have to be full of energy so I can use you later.""... Use me?" She asked, and bit into it experimentally. "You always make things in layers.""That's how we tend to like it." Sarvesh said. "The bread is made of waffle batter, and the rest is sweetened for those with taste buds.""And are you really surprised. You should come down to the bay and help out. All of you!"Anna raised her eyebrows."You're really fired up, aren't you?" She asked, and giggled. "Sure, I'll help. I'm... not very good at it, but I've made repairs now and then. You should really be asking Damien, but he's sleeping in, I think."With a puff of black smoke, Rho and Theta appeared, and Rho scampered to the kitchen to grab some food.
>>24280353"It's here! It's finally here!"Don't bother actually explaining.
>>24280353"Well I'll wake him up!"<DAMIEN. DAMIEN WAKE UP. DAMIEN WE NEED TO BUILD MY SHIP.>
>>24280353"Hey guys! I am building a space ship want to help? I know you already want to."
>>24280353"I'll ask Damien when he wakes up." Then shout out to Rho and Theta "Hey, you guys wanna help me build a spess ship?"
>>24280353"yous goobin ish goob sharby" nom nom nom nom"Rho, Theta, I'mma making a shippie!"
>>24280353"Rho, Theta, you two have been conscripted into my crew, I am the Pirate Queen Heather and you shall assist me in making my Spaceship!"
>>24280393>Pirate King Heatherftfy Anna's the Queen
>>24280393Pirate King* Heather>FTFY
>>24280353ask how Theta is getting along with everyone.
"I'll wake him up!" You say.You close your eyes, and reach into Damien's mind, and yell at him to wake up."Rho, Theta, you two have been conscripted into my crew!""Your crew?" Theta asked."I'm the pirate queen heather, and you shall assist me in making my spaceship!""I can't." Theta said. Today, his eyes were bright orange, and he almost looked broader than he was. "I have more work to do with Lambda. It's not easy.""I'll help! how can I help?" Rho asked, grinning up at you.Damien stomped into the room, bags under his eyes."What." He asked you."I'mma making a ship!" You say, and take a bite out of the food Sarvesh had made you. With it in mouth, you grin up at Damien.He just sighed, and sat down. "Yeah, sure, I'll help. But you'll owe me."
>>24280481>"I'm the pirate queen heather, and you shall assist me in making my spaceship!">QueenDammit Exabutt, it's King.
>>24280481<I'll 'owe'~ you one alright.>
>>24280481"Deal! And Rho, you can help Sarvesh get tools, and food, and pieces of the frame, and all sorts of things!"
>>24280503>Oh, right, sorry! Let me correct that.>>24280481>pirate queen>King, even.
>>24280481<And how can I repay that?>>Captcha : may clitora
>>24280481damn, he needs rest."sorry for waking you up, i didn't realize you were THAT tired"we're getting maybe a little bit to excited.
>>24280481"I didn't realize you were so tired! I'm sorry! I'll let you sleep."
>>24280556Maybe a little.
"I didn't realize you were so tired!" You call. "I'm sorry! I'll let you sle-"He suddenly lunged forward, and pulled you in a tight, tight hug, pinning your arms to your sides. Damien didn't say anything, he just... hugged you, his eyes closed."... Alright." He said. "I'll make my way to class after sleeping in a bit, then I'll help you with your ship."He turned around and left the cafeteria. You turn to Rho. "And Rho, you can help Sarvesh get tools, and food, and pieces of the frame, and all sorts of things!""Okay! Will I be able to ride in it?" She asked, and stole one of Sarvesh's cakes.
>>24280614"It should be big enough for everyone."It is big enough for everyone, right? 'Everyone' has basically doubled since we designed it.
>>24280614"Everyone can ride in it! I designed it big and made it even bigger when I bought a better drive core!"
>>24280614D'aww, I think he might be getting a bit attached to us."Of course you'll be able to ride it! Everyone will!"
>>24280614"Of course!"<Everything okay?> @TheD
>>24280614"Can't have a ship without a crew! And I can't be a pirate king without a ship!Free rides for everyone!"
>>24280614"Of course you can! I made it big enough for all of us to make roadtrips!"
>>24280614Damien looks and sound a bit troubled.
>>24280646I've sorta been getting vibes he's really disturbed by what he had to do to get Lambda's head. We should probably set aside some time for him in the near future.
>>24280656This, then blush when we realize what we just said and amend it to "free SHIP rides"
>>24280689Naw.Too hyped to pay attention to little insignifcant details like that
"Can't have a ship without a crew! and I can't be a pirate king without a ship!" You say. "I designed it big and made it even bigger when I bought a better drive. Free rides for everyone!""Hooray!" Rho said, quickly catching up to your enthusiasm. "I can't wait. Now we just gotta do classes."Jilly came into the cafeteria, Sigma walking next to her, the two talking. Rho burst into smoke, and hugged both of them for a second, before going back to more Centaur cakes.Just as tired as Damien, Alex lumbered into the room and grabbed some toast, ponderously buttering them."These are really really good!" Jilly said, biting into the cake."You're welcome.""And, um, anyone know where Damien is?" She asked. "I have something to ask him."
>>24280781"He just went back to sleep I'm afraid."
>>24280781"I think he went back to his room to nap. He looked really tired."
>>24280781"Just missed him!"Giggle"Spaceship! Heeheheheee."omnomnom
>>24280781"I just kinda dragged him out of bed with force. He'll be in the classes. Hey wanna join my pirate crew? We will ride the sea of stars, searching for booty!"
>>24280781"he went back to sleep until class, he looked really tired. I'm a little worried.""same goes for you Alex, you look like you played Futurecraft through out the night!"
>>24280781"He went back to bed, he seems pretty tired today."
"I think he just went back to his room to nap." You say. "He looked really tired. I'm a little worried.""Aw, okay.""Same goes for you, Alex." You say, and turn to him. "you look like you played Futurecraft throughout the night!""Do I?" He asked. "I thought I slept well.""Hey, wanna join my pirate crew? We will ride the sea of stars, searching for booty!""... I'm incapable of having booty, though." Jilly said. "Unless I got butt transgenes or something."Rho started giggling."Sure, as long as I don't have to help build the ship." Alex said. "Mostly since I need to study today."
>Alex and Damien both really tired.>Alex has 'something to talk about' with Damien.>???>buttsecks
>>24280974"Studying is for scrubs!"
>>24280980Nah, it's Jilly that needs to talk to him. Probably about massages.
>>24280974"What are you studying? Study in the hangar where we're building it!"
>>24280974"You should get sleep, Prometheus."
>>24281055Spilling the beans isn't fun!
>>24280974"Study? Don't be ridiculous matey! You are gonna be buildin' our beauty today!But seriously what are you studying for?"
>>24280974"well, if possible I'd like everyone to pitch in, in some way to make this build special.""maybe you could provide some encouragement?""maybe you can study in the hangar with us?"we can learn while we build!
>>24281071Uh, that's just the name he uses on the extranet.
"You should get sleep, Prometheus.""No can do, Arcturus." He said. "Studying.""What are you studying?" You ask."... For classes?" Alex asked. "Like... school?"Everyone met eyes."... None of you study? At all? Do you even do homework?"Nobody said anything."And you're all probably still doing well because 'lawl i'm psi-gick." He said, and grumbled. "Or maybe even the teachers don't even care."
>>24281110"Pffft. I don't even look at my grade reports half the time anyway."
>>24281110"They really don't care, they have the bare minimum of classes set up so this place technically qualifies as a school. And when it comes to anything mathy or sciencey I get good grades without trying anyways."
>>24281110"Hey, you're a psigick as well," pout and hug him."You just need to learn to control it."Munch on a disc, "We should start training"
>>24281110"Didn't the teachers tell you when you came here? The school portion is sort of just for legal reasons... I mean we'll probably end up maladjusted adults once we graduate because we won't know how calculus or whatever works but hey, psi-gick powers."
>>24281110"Wait they didn't tell you? This is not school. This is just something pretending to be a school. They educate us just so we aren't behind in knowledge against normal people.">I'd like to ask him if his shield is what's bothering him but I don't know if that is a good idea since it seems like rubbing salt in wounds.
>>24281110"The Not!Teachers are more interested in research than anything.It's the entire reason we're here, after all."
>>24281110I study all the time, every time I build something I need to learn something new to make it work
"They really don't care. they have the bare minimum of classes set up so this place technically qualifies as a school." You say."Oh goddamnit." Alex said, and he threw his notebook at the wall, sighing and laying his head on the table. "I give up, then."He let out a sigh."Um." Jilly said. "Your shield... it, uh, isn't there anymore.""My what? My anti-thing thingy?""Yeah." Jilly said. You focus as well, and you can quite clearly sense his mind, with its eddies and flows like everyone's, instead of simply a featureless sphere.
>>24281110Didn't he get around ten million as his share of the Ishelda mission? Dude's pretty much set for a good long time, not like he needs to worry about money for a while.
>>24281191"Oh noes! Maybe you tired yourself out so much that you don't have the energy to keep it up?"
>>24281191"Wait wait wait."Lift him with TK to confirm it.
>>24281213Don't just lift people randomly, we should ask first.
>>24281191hold up, he doesn't want us to poke around in his head, let's stop it.don't go and make him angry now!
>>24281211>Don't have the energy to keep it up.lol
>>24281191"Alex I'm gonna lift you okay?" Lift with TK
"Um, I know it's as personal as personal gets - but you should consider letting Jilly go through your head. She may be able to find forgotten memories and connect dots about your powers. I think there's a good chance you could get some real answers - or at least pointed in the right direction."
>>24281191Are you feeling okay, Alex?Do you need us to take you to the medibay?
"Wait wait wait. Alex, I'm gonna lift you, okay?" You say. "Sure." You focus... and start to lift him. And for a moment, he lifts entirely off of the seat, pushed up by invisible forces. He panicked, and yout feel his shield erect itself. His mind was once again a featureless sphere as he fell back down, your TK unable to grab him."Oh man." he said. "That was so cool! Do it again. And don't drop me so suddenly this time."You try, and your grip just slides off of him."It's back again." Jilly said. "We can't do anything.""... So, it went away when I decided to be done with something forever and give up." Alex said. "That's... good to know, I guess."
>>24281330"I think, Alex, you just need to learn to relax."
>>24281330This would be a good time to tell him about that dream we had.
>>24281330So...friendzoning him...was helping himmy mind is full of fuck
>>24281330"Well if it works anything like the rest of our psionics, you just have to emulate that state of mind to do it again.">>24281345We already did a while back.
>>24281330"Done with what exactly, if you don't mind me asking?""Maybe if I get a closer look..."Hold his head in our hands and examine his mind with Telepathy."Give up on something again, anything, and I'll try to watch what happens."
>>24281330"I think you were just too stressed with everything so you unconsciously kept it up, and after... relaxing enough, you eased enough to let it go."Hug him, "Now we can train!"
>>24281330I think it more about you relaxing, and that you stopped stressing out rather than giving up
>>24281330"it doesn't sound very good when you put it like that.""maybe it works if you let go of something that has been bothering you?"
>>24281330You know, there's nothing wrong with studying if you WANT to study. We all have our hobbies, after all.
"Well, if it works anything like the rest of our psionics, you just have to emulate that state of mind to do it again.""Guess I should spend all my suddenly-free time meditating, then." He said. "Can you say anything zen?""There is no try, there is only do." Sarvesh said.Alex snickered."What?" Sarvesh asked."Nothing, nothing.""I think you were just too stressed with everything that you unconsciously kept it up, and after... relaxing enough, you eased enough to let it go.""Maybe." He said. "That makes sense, I guess.""You know, there's nothing wrong with studying if you *want* to study. We all have our hobbies, after all.""Well, I was in the top thousand on Burer's Glyph. Grade ranking, I mean. and I kept that through studying. Not really sure why, even, but there's no point now. It's not like I enjoy studying."
>>24281349Imaine what my suggestion would do besides making him feel shitty.
>>24281409But think of all the cool stuff you know!
>>24281409"If you make studying fun, there's no shame in enjoying it.Maybe you should tell about this to doctors.
>>24281409"maybe you could find something else to do. Perhaps... um, gardening?"
>>24281409"Well, now you can look forward to screwing around with Not!Magic powers and getting paid disgustingly well for it instead.You are getting paid to be here, right?"
>>24281409"At least you'll have qualifications when you leave!"
"Maybe you could find something else to do. Perhaps... um, Gardening?""Gardening."You nod."In space."You nod again."Uh, I hate to tell you, Heather, but there are no plants in space.""There's hydroponics out and to the left a few dozen degrees." Anna said. She shot him a grin. "Maybe you should study more."You giggle."Well, now you can look forward to screwing around with Not Magic powers and getting paid disgustingly well for it, instead. You are getting paid to be here, right?""Yeah, I am." He said. "Okay, everybody, shh, I'm going to try, uh, whatever it is. Relaxing."He closed his eyes, and you focused on his mind, feeling the shield to see if it was weakening. He took a deep breath."... I can't do it when everyone's all staring at me." He said."Performance anxiety?" Theta asked. "Don't worry, a lot of guys-"Rho hit him in the shoulder.
>>24281538Snicker a bit, then look away, but keep feeling for the shield.
>>24281538Pffff.Give him a shoulder massage. That will help him relax.
have theta do the massage.
>>24281538"no need to rush it, just find place where you feel at ease and try it out.""maybe get a message or something."if he asks, we could give him a message but for some reason i doubt we'd do any good.
>>24281538Whisper seductively into his ear whilst caressing his shoulders.
>>24281641Seductive whispering will not help him relax.
>>24281641going a bit to far there.
>>24281641Look, I'm all fine with teasing Alex and such, but that's just plain cruel.
>>24281641that's like the opposite of help
>>24281641That will not help.Let's just be friendly and reassuring.
>>24281538"It's okay. You don't have to do it now. No pressure.And I have a perfect hobby for atleast this afternoon : My ship! Since you won't be studying you have a plenty of time to help me."
>>24281670And just incidentally bump his ears with our boobs, of course.
>>24281641It's established that Heather is a tease, but that's taking it a bit too far.
You snicker, evilly."No need to rush it." You say. "Just find a place where you feel at ease and try it out. Maybe get a massage or something.""By my guest." He said, and you put your hands on his shoulders.There he sat, his arms crossed over his head, face down on the table, relaxing, while everyone else started filing out for class. You were going to be a little late, but it didn't matter much. Carefully, you pressed your fingers into his spine and shoulderblades while he sat there, and you felt his shield quiver, and slowly, very slowly, started to fade.And then you quite clearly caught the thought that if you leaned just a bit more forward, you'd be pressing your breasts into his back.And then you caught the thought that <did she hear that? Oh crap.> And the shield was back up."... Uh, guess I'm a bit too stressed still." He said. "I'll go to hydroponics like Anna said. Maybe I'll drag Jilly along since she can feel my mind and stuff, and tell me when I'm doing well."
>>24281641Dude no.>"We're just friends, it'd be weird to think of anything else, right?"
>>24281721Snicker, ruffle his hair."Have fun Prometheus."
>>24281721I think it might have helped, but it's hard to tell.Maybe get Jilly to do one. You can relax around her, she picks up on everyone's leaking thoughts but is nice and you can trust her not to gossip.
>>24281721press our tits on his back as we get up to sexy walk to class.
>>24281721"It dropped for a second, but then you tarted worrying again.Just spend some time in the garden, relax, don't worry about anything."Press our breasts against his back before we saunter off to class.
>>24281721"Alright. You had it down for just a second there."
>>24281721"it seemed to work! but then it went up again.""we've had a breakthrough! you should probably tell (Alex's is assigned scientist here)"
>>24281721In addition to whatever we say, hug him from behind before leaving so our breasts get pushed up against him.
>>24281821This is acceptable.
>pressing our breasts against him is probably the last thing he needs right now.let's ruffle his hair and head out to class.
>>24281721"It was definitely weakening there. I think some time relaxing in hydroponics would do it."
>>24281721"You're getting too excited and too vorried. Relax Alex."
"It seemed to work!" You say, and hug him from behind. "We've had a breakthrough. You should probably tell your counselor.""I will." He responded."It's definitely weakening, there. I think some time relaxing in hydroponics would do it." You say."Glad to hear." He responded, and stretched. "I'll go tell him, then I'll see you guys in class." He said. "And then I'll nap in class since they don't really matter." He grumbled, and got to his feet. You giggle, and make your way to class. Alex walks in halfway through, and after that, a slightly-less-tired Damien.A few hours later, past lunch and post-lunch classes, the buzzer on Manus's desk buzzed, signalling the end of classes for the day. You immediately sprung to your feet, as did Summer, Sarvesh, and Anna."You ready to work on the ship?" Sarvesh asked, his mandibles twitching. He sounded almost excited. "I'm ready."
>>24281958"I was ready since I awoke! Let's do eeeeeet."
>>24281958Bodily grab Daimen and carry him to the ship over our head.
Rolled 1yes!technological wonders here we come!
>>24281958no talking run to the ship
>>24281958"I've been ready since I got up. Let's do this."Let's get some serious technofugue going, directing people where they need to be, working on stuff, bringing everything together.Foodwise, we ignore it, Sarvesh may have to hold us and put a snack in front of our mouth so we bite into it.
>>24281981You don't need to roll for every god damn thing.
>>24281981For what purpose
>>24281981I think we will have brain damage again. But this time it will be from having a ship hull dropped on our head.
>>24281958"Ship shipship ship... ship.">Be the Gae Bolg (NP, not Gun)>Convince the Universe you're already working on it
>>24281981and then we forgot how to even hold a wrench or turn a screw.
>>24281958"You cannot even comprehend how ready I am."
>>24281981Your rolls had no effect before. Why try again.
>>24281958"Ready? I was born to be constructing ships!"
"I've been ready since I awoke!" You say, and heave Damien into the air, dragging him along. "Let's do this!""Yes, let's." Damien said, neutrally, as you dragged him along."Sarvesh, put up the life support there." You say some time later, with Einstein's projector flashing a light where you wanted it to go. "And summer, have your crew start... hmm, wiring all the control components on the cockpit. Red wires go into red sockets, et cetera.""Okay!" Summer said, and focused, as her generic humanoid workers got to work."It looks to be shaping up well." Rho said, sitting on one of the empty crates. "Sorry I can't help much.""Actually, you can help!" Sarvesh said, levitating in place. "I can't reach into this vent to fasten everything. Think you can climb in there?""Sure!" She said, and turned into a puff of smoke, appearing on Sarvesh's back. Damien stretched, and cracked his neck. "Me and Anna got the drive attached, and the smaller one put back onto the shuttle." He said, while Omnissiah fastened on the inner hull. The inside of the ship was really starting to take shape, though you still needed to finish the engine for power, wire everything, and fasten the outer hull into shape. "We should probably take a break, or we'll all get exhausted." He added.
>>24282189"Grumble mumble" (as in speak the words)"You can rest, I'll rest when I'm dead and I'll call you when I've a plan for that"
>>24282189"Yeah that sounds like a good idea. Do we have the ship kitchen and lounge set up yet? We could eat and relax in there."
>>24282189"Yeah, that's probably a good idea. I think we're almost ready to put in the two engines we salvaged as well, we wouldn't want anyone making mistakes handling those."
>>24282189"I don't think I understand. Stop working on my ship? I mean, I hear the words, but... It just isn't making much sense to me. I just can't really comprehend what you're saying."
>>24282189You might get tired, but I could keep going forever!
>>24282217>>24282227These, continue working while they talk to us, with a glazed over expression.
>>24282189"Yeah sure, we should totally stop, eat a bit take a rest."As we're saying this just keep on working away not paying any attention.
>>24282189have Einstein turn up his speakers and announce snack time!fiddle with wiring while we eat.
>>24282189But the decabulators need fitting, and I don't trust anyone else do do it.And the retro-oscillators won't tune themselves!
>>24282221Oh man, we should order some furniture for them both. The comfiest chairs imaginable.
>>24282189"Hmph. You always get tired too soon."
>>24282330Too rough teasing?
>>24282366makes us seem ungrateful for their help.
>>24282285I'd second that if I didn't think it was an outright lie. Damien's probably fantastic.
"I don't think I understand." You say, fitting the decabulators- before throwing them behind you and grabbing two-inch decabulators instead. "Stop working on my ship? I mean, I hear the words, but... it just isn't making much sense to me. I just can't really comprehend what you're saying."Damien gave you a Look. You grinned up at him. "Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Do we have the ship kitchen and lounge set up yet? We could eat and relax in there."Some time later, you were all sitting in the slightly-cramped lounge room, the kitchenette in the corner as Sarvesh cooked, teleporting in various foods when he needed them. You popped another one of those long breadsticks in your mouth, and relaxed.Anna lay back on one of the half-built beds, the cushions simply slipped in and not strapped down, and left the hatch open. You keep working on the controls as you eat, the stick in your mouth as you tapped on the maintenance computer. While you needed to take a break, the maintenance drones and Summer's workmen didn't."Um. Don't-" Summer said. "Please stop, this is too.."You look over, and Rho was rubbing Summer's belly, grinning evilly. She tickled something, and summer twitched."Okay!" She said, still grinning.
>>24282389Telepath to Rho: <Cats have their breasts on their bellies you know. You were just feeling her up.>
>>24282389TK Rho off her, grumble something along the way "You heard the lady" while continuing to work
>>24282389"Rho, you're doing it again."
>>24282389"You two, get a room. Some of us have SCIENCE to take care of."Try to have a talk with the growing ship, see if she's feeling alright, if she's growing up well and if she has any concerns about her future.
>>24282389Lift Rho off with TKIt's Heather's job to molest the kitty!
>>24282389"So fluffy.""It's kind of a shame we haven't installed the bunks yet, isn't it?"<Rho, Just try to mind the line between teasing and molesting.>
"So fluffy." You say. "It's kind of a shame we haven't installed the bunks yet, isn't it?""I have my bunk installed." Sarvesh said. His own bunk was in the cargo hold- and it was simply a lot of straps to hold him in place.<Rho, cats have their breasts on their bellies, you know. You were just feeling her up.><I know!> She said.<...Just try to mind the line between teasing and molesting.><I know. I'm doing the last one!> She said back, and then patted Summer's head and got to her feet again. Summer just frowned up at her, rolling onto her paws again.Summer grumbled to herself, laying down, and stretching. Sarvesh handed her some food, and she started biting it.Behind all of you, asleep, Damien suddenly opened his eyes."... So, clairvoyance overrides my normal sight." He said. "Good to know."
>>24282541Jump hug. "Yay! It's not gone forever!"
>>24282541So everything goes funny colours again?I suppose I'll have to tire you out if you want to finish that painting.
>>24282541"Ha. Now you physically cannot correct that painting."
It may be a bit too early to start thinking about this (especialy considering Heather is likely incapable of contemplative thought at such a time), but since we already named our gun Gae Bulg we should name our ship something alone the same lines, maybe Lugh.
>>24282574Or we could name it something cuter. Like Bubbles. Or Nautilus.
>>24282541"Good on you."<Hello ship, you're not yet born but you're getting there. Can you talk yet?>
>>24282541"I'm glad it didn't decide that it wasn't needed."

>>24282541>Rho raping the kitty
You jump up to Damien and pull him into a hug. "Yay! It's not gone forever!""It was never going to be gone forever." He said. "It's only when I change things that it goes away, and it always comes back.""So everything goes funny colors again?" You ask. "I'll have to tire you out if you want to finish that painting.""I wasn't going to." He said, and chuckled. "You asked me not to. It's crap, but.." He shrugged. "If you really want to tire me out, go for it."Anna's eyed you and him for a time, looking between the two of you. She was thinking, and you started to get some static from her- but before you caught a sliver of her thoughts like you normally did, Sarvesh turned around. "Seems like this is it." He said, setting down the food. It was full of various centaur foods. Baugettes, long breadsticks, those strange cakes from before... and it was all in a bowl of gravy, which didn't quite mesh well with the chocolate.
>Not wanting consistent naming themesPlebeians, the lot of you.

"Usually I'm game to try your cooking, but this is a very strange combination." You say."It isn't my normal, no." Sarvesh said. "But it's good."Tentatively, you pick up one of the baugettes and take a bite. The gravy had soaked in through the bread, which was okay, and there was actually ground beef on the inside. It wasn't actually that bad, surprisingly."Ah, energy for ship building!" You say, and eat. While you do so, you reach out to the ship, and feel for any mind... but there still wasn't anything. No identity, quite yet. You watch as the maintenance drones put together more of the ship, while the crew finally get the ship wired- though they all looked flushed and blushing though, strangely. You look over to Summer, and she avoided looking at Rho."The cockpit is done." Omnissiah said. "It still requires a proper power source instead of the station power, though."

>>24282880"I'll go grab some of the power cores from the workshop. If we have space we could mount that fusion cell from the Demiurg ship as a backup as well."
>>24282880@summer: <Do you need me to jump to your aid like a shining knight? You have but to call, my lady.>

"Damnit! I knew I forgot something." You say. "Where can I pick up a super power supply on short notice?""I... I have a friend who can get us one." Anna said."You have a lot of friends." Damien said."I do, yes." Anna said. "Her name is Newt. She's the one that made me the fusion cannon. She could throw us together a fusion engine in less than a day. But we'd have to go meet her."

"Well, in that case, how many favours do I owe you at this point, pirate queen?" You ask, and grin at Anna."I don't even know. I lost count. But you won't owe me for this one." She said. "Because you're the one paying for it.""Are we going now?" Rho asked. "And are we going the slow way?""Let's go in the wyvern." Anna said. "It's pretty fast.""So the slow way, then."Anna gave Rho a look, and she just smiled back at Anna.

>>24283344"If you think you can teleport the core back with us, we may as well go with instant transmission."
>>24283344"Rho, if you ported us there could you really port the giant reactor back with you easily?"
>>24283344We have to get it back, maybe we go the super fast way to place the order, and the fast way to pick it up?
"Rho, if you ported us there, could you really port the giant reactor back with you easily?""I'm... um, not good with machines. I leave bits behind." She said."Then it's settled." Anna said. "We fly wyvern there.""Be careful, you three." Damien said. "Not that I see anything going wrong.""We will." Anna said, and nodded to him. The two's eyes met for a fraction of a moment. Strange- you'd thought they were more hostile.
>>24283344Oh, that's kind of why I suggested bringing Rho. I thought she could just TP us there.
>>24283432Let's go now!
>>24283432Is this a ploy for seduction?
>>24283451Also squeeze Damien's butt on the way out, see if we can get Anna to notice.
>>24283344Anna, who is ridiculously hot for Heather, and Rho, who is an incredibly lewd tease, in a tiny cockpit for what could be hours.Yes.
>>24283432"Well, why don't we just have Rho teleport us there today, hang around for a little while to place the order and come back tomorrow or way later to pick it up in the Wyvern?"
>>24283432Let me just go grab some real food, so we aren't stuck with brown and/or green stuff, then we can go?
Caoránach for ship name
>>24283468Why bother making two trips when we can just go there, buy the thing, and then bring it back?
>>24283432"You don't have to come if you don't want to, Rho. It'll just be sitting in the ship for a few hours, then waiting for something to be built."
>>24283493Because it would take about a day given what the post at >>24282975 seems to suggest and it just seemed to be a more efficient use of time to TP there than waiting around for it to get done. Though hanging out with Newt could be interesting and Heather may learn some cool shit.
>>24283558Yeah, that was the idea. We should take the Gae Bulg so we have a talking point.
>>24283548Can we squeeze his butt for our own sake at least?
"Let me just go grab some real food-""Are you saying that my cooking isn't real food?" Sarvesh asked, and pouted, his mandibles limp. You respond by taking a handful of his snacks and biting into one."Well, let's go now!" You say."Right." Anna said, and Rho made her way out of your ship. You make your way past Damien to squeeze his butt, and he already knew it was coming- he reacted by giving you a short grope and a wink."You don't have to come if you don't want to, Rho. It'll just be sitting in the ship for a few hours, then waiting for something to be built.""If I get bored, then I can just come back here." She said. "I'm really good with wheres, even when it's a ship in bubble drive."Then she glanced at Anna and then you, and got a little grin. "I might actually go away for a bit even if I'm not bored."The three of you made your way into the wyvern (well, the two of you; Rho was already there by the time you arrived) and you strapped yourself in, Rho lying in the bed, as you stowed Gae Bulg and einstein away. Anna strapped herself in. "Everyone ready?""Yep." Rho said.
>>24283590"Blast off, captain!"
>>24283590"Make it so. Tell me more about Newt. She sounds cool."
>>24283590<I didn't mean to imply that your food isn't real, it's better than real. I just shudder at the thought of Anna's cubes.>
>>24283590Blast off!Is there somewhere we can stop off on the way to pick up Things?We should probably also talk to Rho about molesting people.

>>24283678Basically yeah. I mean, I don't mind if people want to play with Heather's boobs. From all accounts they're pretty rocking.
"Blast off, captain!""Right!" Anna said, and blasted off. After reorienting the ship and kicking into bubble drive, she relaxed in zero-g.<I didn't mean to imply that your food isn't real, it's better than real. I just shudder at the thought of Anna's cubes.><Haha, I know. I was teasing you.> Sarvesh said."Tell me more about Newt. She sounds cool.""Well... she's kind of weird." Anna said. "And obsessed with my implants. And, um... Hound's sister.""... Wait, you're talking about Kiernan's sister?" Rho asked. "Isn't she, um, a fugitive?""Uhm..." Anna said. "Don't tell anybody, okay?"
>>24283730"Obsessed with your implants?"
>>24283730>"Isn't she, um, a fugitive?"who cares, she's Anna's friend.
>>24283730"Psh, my father's a former Pirate King, you're a Pirate Queen and I'll be a Pirate King, why would I tell?"
>>24283730My lips are sealed!
>>24283730What did she do? Should I be worried?
>>24283730"Obsessed? Go on."
>>24283828Pirates don't need no worry. We have Kahlua.
>>24283730"Of course. What'd she do?"
"Psh, my father's a former pirate king, you're a pirate queen, and I'll be a pirate king. Why would I tell?""I was more asking you, Rho.""Oh, don't worry about it." Rho said."My lips are sealed!" You say. "And what do you mean, obsessed with your implants?""She wants to take them apart. Except for the part where they're, y'know, part of my brain. So she, uh... keeps wanting to stimulate them and see how they mess with me. Or connect them to entirely cybernetic limbs and see if I could have like, four arms.""What did she do? Should I be worried?""Uh... not... really?" She asked. "She's never told me what she did, though."
>>24283888"...could you have four arms?"
>>24283888"...Anna lets get some robot limbs."
>>24283888Thinking pose, nostrils flaring, "I could probably help her with studying your implants, hue..."
Why wouldn't you want cybernetic arms?
>>24283888"Four arms would be pretty cool though, you have to admit.""Oh god, don't tell her I can technopathy things."
>>24283888Raise an eyebrow.>"...We should probably be glad she doesn't have my power, then."Blush slightly. Ever so slightly.
>>24283888I'm going to build you some extra limbs, ok?
"... Could you have four arms?""I... I was the clumsiest I've ever been." She said. "Yeah, I can, but they don't work well."You pause a moment, and then raise an eyebrow. "We should probably be glad she doesn't have my power, then."Anna paused."Oh god that's the most terrifying thing I've ever imagined." She said.
>>24283888"Arms? Those stumpy things? Not proper digits like mechandrites? Psh."
>>24283959"You know, I've been feeling like I don't have enough limbs. Maybe she can make me some robot limbs, maybe giant tentacles for flexibility and reach."
>>24283959"What's our ETA by the way, Cap'n?"
>>24283959I'll look forwards to meeting her then!So Rho... How did you manage to disintegrate a dildo?
>>24283992I like your jive. Seconded.
>>24283992Rho is just going to take this and run with it, you know?It's a good thing
>>24283959"Sigma could have extra arms. She wouldn't have any trouble controlling them either, any tech she touches feels like part of her body. I must make this happen."
>>24283992Just, out of character here, can we not be Dave? I'd like Heather to be her own character, not a genderbent Dave expy with a more interesting love life.
>>24283959"Hmm... I wonder if I and Sigma could use Mechandrites with our Technopathies..."
>>24284051I agree. Dave was Dave, Heather is Heather, trying to make Heather a new Dave just seems kind of pointless.
"I'll look forwards to meeting her, then!" You say. "What's our ETA by the way, cap'n?""Twenty minutes." Anna responded, looking at the display."Sigma could have extra arms. She wouldn't have any trouble controlling them either. Any tech she touches feels like part of her body. I must make this happen.""Yes! We should!" Rho said, triumphantly.You turn to Rho. "So Rho... how did you manage to disintegrate a dildo?""Well, disintegration is part of my trick." She said. "Something about how I warp space. So when I got carried away, it just went poof into smoke. It sucked."
>>24284094"So you don't have an acid vagina? Awwww..."
>>24284094"Wait, would that happen if you 'got carried away' with another person?"
>>24284094"Woah, that's pretty cool. I wonder if I can disintegrate things by shaking them really fast with TK actually."
>>24284094"Maybe we can stop somewhere and get a new one?" Look at Anna.Does this happen with people too? No messing up all of my eye candy!
>>24284094"I could make you a new one, all you have to do is ask.Just get me your preferred dimensions and I could whip one up in my workshop, I can add pretty much any other features you want."Heather, she turns perversion into a science.
>>24284108what. no that is a stupid comment
>>24284137>Just get me your preferred dimensions and I could whip one up in my workshop, I can add pretty much any other features you want.""...plus a coffee maker."
>>24284094"I can see how that would ruin the experience. I wonder if I could make one that's psionics-proof. We'd have to enlist Alex's help."
>>24284165that could get awkward (and scalding) at all the wrong times.
>>24284165We won't put a coffee maker in it. It will however give her more orgasms than she thought previously possible.
>>24284094"Well, be careful you don't make any people go poof into smoke in a similar situation."
>>24284184Remerber what Eps said about Rho "occasionally leaving parts of people behind"?
>>24284165we haven't got a coffee maker any more, and we haven't replaced the one that is now par of sarvesh's arm
"Maybe we can stop somewhere and get a new one?" You ask, and look at Anna."... Not until the way back." Anna said. "I don't want Newt to see us with one, or she'll get the idea to combine that and my implant."Then she shivered"Wait, would that happen if you... got carried away with another person?""I dunno. I hope not." She said. "That would be bloody.""I can see how that would ruin the experience. I wonder if I could make one that's psionics-proof. We'd have to enlist Alex's help.""Well... Maybe." She said. "I don't know. I'm not really attracted to Alex."
>>24284184Clearly we need to provide Rho with the tools to train herself, and when she had gained a suitable level of control we can take over the lessons.
>>24284220"Well I more meant that Alex could maybe help build a dildo that was psionics-proof, somehow. I didn't actually mean you should jump Alex."
"...damnit now you've got me thinking about how to make one. Pistons and rotors."
>>24284220"On second thought, why buy them, I could make better ones myself.Rho, tell me of the dildo of your dreams so I may construct it!"
>>24284220>"I don't know. I'm not really attracted to Alex."that's probably cause phi is a brother... forget I said taht
>>24284253It seems we have our next project, can't wait to explain that one to people who wander into our workshop to see what we're building.
>>24284220I know what you mean, but I try to set him up anyway. He's nice, but just sort of... you know.
>>24284260>forget I said tahtI didn't even understand it.
>>24284253we have a METAL WORK SHOP that's not conducive to making dildos
>>24284220"No! I meant maybe he could make stuff for you that you can't teleport. Imbue items with his anti-psi essence."
>>24284253It should be as simple as possible, since Rho seems to have trouble with complex machinery. Maybe just a latex moulded shape is more her thing?
>>24284253"Just wait until its done! Your dildo will be the dildo that pierces the heavens!"
>>24284269No trying to set Alex up, that will just make him miserable if he realises what we're doing.
>>24284220"You don't need to be attracted to him to forge his magic powers into the greatest dildo ever."
"I know what you mean, but I try to set him up anyway. He's nice, but he's sort of...""In love with you?" Anna asked.You turned to look at her."He obviously is." She added.
>>24284260No revealing brotherhoods yet.
>>24284274Alex is Phi. he was part of the program that made Rho. but we're not supposed to tell people, because Alex has to find out by him self.
>>24284301"I figured from his reaction..." sigh."But friends since kids" whimper
>>24284301Facepalm, "So at this point - is there anybody on the station who ISN'T attracted to me?"
>>24284301"Well, y-yeah. I know. I've been trying to ease him into a relationship with someone else."
>>24284278>Make a metal cast for a hard rubber pourNo probs here.
>>24284301"I know, and he knows I know, and he knows that I don't feel the same way. I'm not really sure how to deal with it."
>>24284329That just sounds really egotistical, don't say that.Also: Max.
>>24284301"What do I doooooooooooo"
>>24284301Frown. "I know, I feel bad for him. Maybe if he hadn't moved away things would be different but... c'est la vie."
>>24284301>All those responses>Pick the one mean one that people voted againstWhat are you doing. We weren't even trying to set them up.
>>24284329hahahahahago for this 100%
>>24284301"Yeah... I kind of figured that out a while ago. I'm not really sure how to deal with it, I don't want to hurt him, but I just don't feel that way about him."
>>24284301Whyyyy did you pick that response exabyteeeee
>>24284301>"In love with you?" Anna asked.>You turned to look at her.>"He obviously is." She added.I knew that before I slept with Damien
>>24284301"I know, I get that reasonably often, people here tend to be attracted to me. People like bubbly red-headed wrench wench pirate queens. I like him, but not in a lovey-dovey way, and he knows this.And this is coming from you Anna, you're not exactly subtle."
>>24284329>>24284368>Terrible responses general
>>24284329Jilly and Omni, the ones who haven't figured out what sexual attraction is yet.
>>24284368Plsno, too lewd to just mention
>>24284329>>24284350That Heather knows of for sure and in order:Sarvesh, Damien, Anna, Summer, and technically the only sexual experience Jilly ever had was a result of Heather. Now Alex.I think she deserves to be a little exasperated at this.
Come on people, no egotistical responses, even if Heather does know that half the station wants to give her the D/alien D analogue, saying it just makes her sound like a smug bitch.
>>24284343This one.It seems most reasonable.
>>24284392Unless Heather is harem anime protagonist level retarded, she figured out Alex's feelings for her a long time ago. He made it pretty damned obvious.
>>24284301"Yeah, but that's obviously not what I meant."
>>24284415Not disagreeing but>implying this isn't a harem anime
>>24284470Perhaps, but I was hoping Heather wasn't utterly retarded at least.
>>24284470I don't think we could pull off the harem ending at this point. It'll either be Damien or Anna.
>>24284511or both, but that depends on Anna
>>24284301I know, but I just don't feel that way about him.
"Yeah... I kind of figured that out a while ago." You say. "I know, and he knows I know, and he knows that I don't feel the same way." You say. "I'm not really sure how to deal with it.""Poor guy." Anna said. "I feel bad for him."Then she looked at the timer."We're about there. Let me pull out of bubble drive."She pulled the lever, and suddenly you were in the middle of an asteroid field. You jerked out of your chair when she suddenly slammed on the thrusters, weaving around asteroid and asteroid, until she reached a small, brown one, with what looked like a hangar."Newt, I'm here again! I brought some friends!""Yay!" The response came, and the hangars opened. "Come on in!"Anna carefully brought Wyvern into the hangar, and then landed it properly. The hangar doors closed, and Wyvern was fastened into place. "Let me introduce you two to her. Come on."The inside of the asteroid was, at the very least, a mess. Various electronic bits sat loose on the walls, on shelves, on everything. The thrumming below your feet meant that this asteroid was artificial gravity capable, which meant that Newt was either very very rich, or was somehow able to make hundreds of thousands of small superconductors very very quickly. Newt herself was a girl with thick glasses, and stringy blond hair, that hasn't been washed in almost years. "Hey. Newt, this is Rho, and this is Heather."Newt blinked at both of you."... You look just like Sallanee." The girl said.>End of thread!
>>24284511I think Summer and Sarvesh are in with a chance as well, although those two are the frontrunners at present.
>>24284535Pirate time! YARRRR!
>>24284560Not today, I'm pretty exhausted.>>24284564Yes, Dad.
>>24284535>"... You look just like Sallanee." The girl said.Is it time to give Newt a pirate fistbump.
>>24284564Yep. She knows the Pirate King.
>>24284579Yes. She'll probably give us the friends and family discount when she finds out we're building our pirate ship.
>>24284579Suddenly that 'Pirate High Five!' game we used to play with dad makes a whole lot more sense. We can give her the secret handshake.
>>24284579Am I the only one who didn't realize till now that Sallanee was probably the pirate king in question?
>>24284622Exabutt. I will be highly disappointed if you don't start the next thread with this.
>>24284641Lambda specifically said it was our dad. We only have one dad. Who the hell did you think it was?
>>24284622>Heather knows the secret Pirate handshake.Make it so!
This reminds me, we need to send a message to our dad at some point:"Okay I was originally joking when I called you a pirate king, but I've since discovered that it's actually true. The jig is up! Tell me everything!"and then if she still insists no:"Look, I'm meeting people out here who actually know you at least by reputation if not personally. And since they all insist that I look just like you, your reputation is at least in part my reputation by proxy. You NEED to tell me."and then if she STILL insists no:"How about all electronic devices in the house start playing the raunchiest most disgusting old man pornography I can find every time you try to mess around with mom? How would you like that? Flabby, hairy, man-butts all up in your business every time you go in for a kiss? SURRENDER YOUR PIRATE SECRETS!!!"
>>24284681Oh, I must've missed that when reading what Lambda was saying originally. Whoops!
Is there any modern technology that doesn't use decabulators?
>>24284844The same tech that doesn't require us to use rotational velocidensity.
>>24284844Yes. Decabulators don't contain any decabulators.
>>24284881Two-inch Decabulators contain several of the normal variant.
>>24284910Two inch Decabulators contain several four inch decabulators?
>>24284844Again with the fuckin' decabulators.
>>24284968I think we need a tip of the day, just on Decabulators.
>>24284983Decabulators all the way down, man.
>>24284983what about recabulators
>>24284910Only if you buy the shitty cheap ones. You really shouldn't, they take several times as long to decabulate and it can fuck the whole system up
>>24285043Recabulators? Those are *theoretical*. They've never been perfected yet.You can, however, fold four-inch decabulators to serve as a 45% efficient two-inch recabulator. It's a clever engineering trick that's mostly scorned by the technology enthusiasts, but always used by engineers.
>>24285074>but always used by engineersWhy even decabulate in the first place if you're just going to recabulate with some crappy inefficient hack? Those morons just don't know how to design a good piece of technology.
>>24285074>45% theoretical efficiencyExa, your brain got decabulated.
>>24285074What about double reverse-cabulation? Is that still theoretical or has it been done yet?
>>24285150>double reverse-cabulationNow you're just being silly. Sounds like a fancy way of saying you stuck two decabulators together which you use so you can charge the customer extra.
>>24285136no a recabulator would be 55% more efficient than the work around currently employed
>>24285184>stuck two decabulators together which you use so you can charge the customer extra.Like FlakBox 1440?
