Automech Intervention

Avatar Author: Asuterisuku What to say about me? There's a lot going on in my head, mostly to do with music and gaming these days, though a good book can usually distract me. Read Bio

For a while, we talked… or rather, I talked and he displayed what he wanted to say on-screen. He seemed rather shocked that I was able to take my captor’s body as my own, though I guess he didn’t know who he was dealing with, did he? Even to people who would call me friends would never recognize me like this.

Eventually, I was able to coax out the location of the nearest Aegis base of operations. If I could get inside somehow, and convince them of my story….

\You might want to watch out for that suspicious looking shadow behind you.

Suspicious looking shadow? Oh, right, the webcam was on. It was then that my audio receptors (Microphones? I couldn’t call them ears anymore, now could I?) picked up some rather heavy footsteps, some way behind me.

Almost reflexively – maybe some residue from that idiot, BotNet? – I turned and armed myself with Dugout’s rifle… and was greeted by the barrel of a rather similar weapon.

“Who are you… no, scratch that, how did you find me?” I asked, finger tightening.

    This is weird. I’m not getting email notifications of these sequels, and they’re not showing up on my recent activity page.

    I see you’re a devotee of the wisdom of Raymond Chandler.

    If it works, it works. XD I’ve honestly never seen that one before in my life. But there is a continuity problem with that quote; what if you get stuck again when those two guys are still in the room?

    By the way, I probably wasn’t clear about it in the last episode but I meant for her to have made him able to talk, too. But still be reading his thoughts as well.

    But it works this way too.
