The grey-skinned gynoid listened quietly, with not just merely professional sympathy written across her face. She thought of her own delays and how they could have come out as opposed to how they did. "That was not, necessarily, an irrational decision given what you knew. No one can predict the...

I miss Battletech . Nobody out here plays anymore. FFG's X-Wing seems to have replaced it. I always have to create new groups wherever I go. Having an augmented Regiment of IS 'Mechs and a Cluster of Clan 'Mechs doesn't hurt. I'm extremely rusty with my Honorverse ships. A Pinnace? I'm even rustier...

The Loki -class is definitely in the superyacht scale. The DropShip terminology is untimely ripped from Battletech (perhaps to no one's great surprise, with the 1980s already having been invoked); in more modern Weber-esque parlance the original milspec configuration would be a PCL. (EDIT: Swith, if...

Speaking of oldschool, <tag>

Shodey--in this case going by the obvious handle "Shade"--is definitely pulling out all the stops when it comes to 1980s cyberpunk fashion tropes. This particular Cyborganic Local Node is primarily meat-based, though filled with enough inorganic augments of both mind and body to make the d...

Otherwhere In a nowhere in particular that spanned a quarter of a galaxy and nowhere at all, she spread the information out in front of her. Smoke that didn’t exist curled from nostrils she didn’t have as she held in a breath she didn’t need, the light of networks outside framing her face in stripe...

The 'stages' of grief are neither a process nor a cookbook; they are merely diagnostic, even if 'acceptance' is the desired end result. There is no right way to process grief, but that grieving must be allowed to occur. Poking, prodding, asking--all that only led to her patient retreating behind a s...

Getting Away For One's Health

It took little effort to spirit the Governor away. All of the relevant actors who needed to know knew, and they took the effort to sandbag the security apparatuses and media organs that didn’t need to know. Secure ambulance from the hospital to the airport. Courier air travel from Northrop-Grumman t...

He'd never been graced with what one would call a beautiful face, and it hadn't improved with age: were someone to steam a walnut to flatten it out a bit, score it with some incomplete sandblasting to roughen it through randomized pitting, and then make the corners bulbous in the way considered cute...

Lounge Shodey returned the squeeze. She could commiserate. Quite easily so. It wasn't as though she had no experience with other people irrationally holding her background against her. However, the difference between the cases of the aunt and the niece, in her mind, is that the aunt actually deserv...

The nekoite avatar bowed her head with appreciative respect at the first proclamation. "Thank you, Your Imperial Majesty." Such was an unexpected boon, but a positive one. Not that she could truly allow herself, or her people, to take immediate advantage of it: such would quickly become de...

Running at faster clock speeds than those around her meant that S.H.O.D.A.N. saw the muscle twitches and electromagnetic fluctuations faster than her compatriots. The scream and hubbub therefore came as no surprise, and she simply stood with imperial impassivity. Her eyes momentarily took notice of ...

Zorth Axis As the boy-king talked himself in circles and Naiya spoke wisdom beyond her years, S.H.O.D.A.N. let the fire in Her eyes slide back up the visual spectrum from their fiery red and yellow back to their neutral green glow. "What the Maia says is true. Choices abound, and always do. Ev...

That much was something of a relief as Shodey gave no indication of Her internalized sigh, instead projecting nothing but authoritative serenity as She raised one hand aft...

The nekoite avatar frowned, looked at the man bowed before her, then looked up. In three dimensions, her head turned upwards, but she was actually looking along the zorth axis. "Oh, spite ." It had been a very long time since she had last used that particular mild expletive. She didn't...

While Kousenel spoke, Shodey fashioned the items she requested and he offered to fit her own ends. The bandages and wadding she made into a prosthetic, held in place with the tape. The garb became a mozzetta that could cover that obvious bit of fakery. She accomplished all this with one hand and str...

It'll have to do since it's already done.

Sickbay Shodey returned Naiya's hug one-handed since the pectoral myomers usually associated with moving her right arm were now thousands of light years away and she didn't want to stress the backup electromotive actuators embedded in the head and capitulum of her humerus. Not unless she had to, at...

With Ro's explicit authorization. Silently, to Naiya, the local S.H.O.D.A.N. node sent a single grimacing thought: Here we go. .

It was probably good for everyone that Naiya had been exerting all due control over her emotions, her inherent powers, and all the rest when the snake creature suggested she promise him a future child. Of course, it had no way of knowing her history, her views on family, on children, or even her con...

S.H.O.D.A.N. considered the knife, and the tendril of connection, and the request. Things were starting to slot together, and as she connected the dots in her singular mind she also took the opportunity to feel the weapon in her hand. More importantly, the sensors embedded throughout her skin measur...
