Welsh Halfwit wrote:"Well," Jenny said, looking to keep her annoyance in check again, "to put it simply I got dressed for breakfast, went to make sure my... team-mate was up. That team mate, being possessed, proceeded to knock me flat on my backside somewhere in the middle of the parking lot and started firing clouds at everyone. I needed a few seconds to strategise and, quite frankly, I had no clue the clouds could become needle sharp daggers capable of ripping apart vehicles. It was also the only cover I could get to where he couldn't see me for a moment and I might make plans." Finally, having said her piece, she sat. I'm fine with you taking over when asked, Quint, she admitted, and no fibbing on my behalf. Truth is all important.
Hivemind sat relatively silently for a moment, reviewing something on a data pad. "Gadgeteer...?"
he said suddenly, looking up at the Varanian.
"It was hard to determine from a distance that the clouds were made of knives. Or, at least, it was difficult for anyone without a HUD telling them what the cloud was."
he said, surprisingly vouching for Jenny.
Hivemind said, seriously, before facing Jenny again. "And you weren't in your armor because you weren't expecting a fight. While I would think by now you would always be ready for a fight... I cannot expect you to wear your armor perpetually. That said, not only would your armor have had a HUD to tell you what the cloud was, it's shields would likely have offered better cover than the food truck anyway. Now I will ask, if you had been wearing your armor would your course of action have been different?"
"I wouldn't worry about that."
Welsh Halfwit wrote:"Don't forget that it's harder to fight with indigestion and heartburn," Jenevive advised, as she'd done dozens of times before. Golten rolled his eyes. He'd heard it several times.
"We'll be there," Corvis remarked.
Eira said, dismissively. She smirked lightly. "If you think Celican stomachs are strong, you don't know Lycans. Odds are I'll be hungry again by the time I get to the gym."
She gave one last wave to the group and a "See ya!"
before running out of the door.
"Just be sure not to blindly say yes either."
Welsh Halfwit wrote:"Good job I'd never say 'no', eh," Jaken said, putting on a grin.
Hivemind said with a nod. "You can trust that I know enough about this whole situation to trust I'm making the best decisions I can, but you always have the right to ask questions. Remember that."
"I... felt that."
Welsh Halfwit wrote:"That feeling," Keeva remarked, feeling the unease in her stomach, "you can feel from me is unease. It'll pass, big guy. Shall we go?"
the Predator said, a noticeable concern in his tone. "It was a negative emotion. Unpleasant. Something rather not experienced again..."
He commented. The drone started walking down the docks towards the doors. "All systems are green. I am ready to fly."
The predator crouched down on all fours, focusing on the open hanger doors. He unfolded his wings to their maximum wingspan. His thrusters started up silently, pushing him forward as he ran down the rest of the dock's length on all four legs. He took off from the end of the dock and rocketed out of the hanger.
The Predator drone turned his head to get a view of it's surroundings. The Beacon was so massive, it seemed to have it's own horizon. The space ship stretched out as far as the eyes could see, it's surface illuminated by the reflected light off of the planet below, as well as the various lights along the ship's exterior. There were countless doors for innumerable hangers, as well as turrets, missile launchers, drop pod launchers, defensive fortifications, ports, viewing platforms, Cargo holds, anything that could be put on the wall was there, and there were thousands of square miles to put them.
Welsh Halfwit wrote:"I know, I know," Cherry said, entering the medical bay as Colorado put in his code. "Still feels good to give back, y'know?" She stepped over to the computer. "Want me to find the files, Col," she asked.
Deske wrote:"Ah sure, if you want to, be my guest," Colorado said, shifting his chair to the side to allow Seena more room to use the terminal.
Welsh Halfwit wrote:Cherry got to work after Colorado provided his passcodes and pulled up the requisite biology and genetics files for Hivemind.
Hivemind said, downloading the files into the Hive network. "I will be sure to keep all personal health information private, and I will be sure to put the research data to good use. Was there anything else you needed? If there was anything you left on the ship, you should be able to retrieve it now."
Legotron123 wrote:The moment Hivemind asked that question, Kolt’s expression noticeably darkened. “No. Not since the day before yesterday.” He said, his voice thick with concern. “Why, did something happen?”
Hivemind laughed. "No, no, nothing happened. I didn't mean to worry you. I was just wondering if you've taken the chance to tell them of yesterday's events. I was also wondering if you told your home planet about Diligitis, seeing as he's taken a particular interest in you it seems."
He shrugged as the two walked deeper through the halls. "If not, it might be a good idea to inform them about some of the 'actors' and 'players' in this cosmic RPG of a universe we seem to live in."
he chuckled again before growing serious. "It... feels like things are building to something. I don't know what. The demons have been trying to get avatars. I don't know why. It might be good to inform them of the aspects. Who's an ally, and who's an enemy. A planet filled with superheroes is going to catch the eyes of the aspects, especially now that you've made contact with the rest of the galaxy.
"During the duration of our conversation, I've already developed schematics for the first version and the 53 upgraded versions after that. I am currently working on designs for V.55, and I just finished them."
Deske wrote:"Well I mean if full cyborg is an option," Ulrich said with a chuckle. "Just kidding. Integrating it into the armor is a good idea though. I assume you have some kind of schematic drawn up for this, because I only have the base mount and cooling system."
Hivemind commented, as though there was nothing weird about what he just said and did. The droid opened the door to the forge and stood aside. "After you."
he said, holding the door.
"I would say it's an appropriate word to use."
Deske wrote:"Is excited the right word to use about someone else's experience? Because I'm kind of excited to see or meet this being," Chris said as they neared the garage.
MT replied. The two of them had reached the garage. MT lowered himself to the ground, opened the door, and stepped inside.
Once he had closed the door, and the two were in private, MT followed Kolt's instructions. He kept in mind someone he at the very least believed he cared deeply about. His pilot, Chris. Focusing on the thoughts and feelings, the emotional data he experienced when he considered his friend, the mech spoke out.
Nothing. Then, several alarms went off in MT's HUD of unknown data input and messages from an unknown source as a voice, soft and kind, reverberated in both his mind, and Chris's by extension. "Hello, MT. Hello, Chris. It is good to finally speak with you."
MT, for lack of a better term and based on the loud and startled shrieking noise he suddenly started making, was completely loosing his mind.
SeanWolf wrote:Deciding to excuse himself, Hawk bid Brad goodbye and continued walking about the place for a while, thought-chatting with his OtherSide about things, including that of upgrading his revolvers. As he was passing by a nearby diner, he suddenly felt his stomach growl, causing him to chuckle a bit, "Guess I am a little hungry." With nothing else much to do, Hawk decided to enter said diner and get something to eat.
As he was entering the diner, someone running out pretty much crashed right into him. "OOF!"
The individual was a tall female wolf with a brilliant white coat of fur, striking ice-blue eyes, an jet black hair. She had a duffle bag slung over her shoulder and looked to be in workout clothes. She was clearly extremely strong, with well-defined muscles pretty much everywhere that could be seen. One of the most notable traits she had, however, was that her right arm was completely made of ice from her elbow to her fingers. "Sorry about that..."
