    Epsilon's Way of Saying Hello The entire space. It was something else entirely. She hadn't woken up due to the water -- although that did help get her fully awake. Every last bit of the room, every last atom felt like it was speaking. Whispering to one another, to her. Constantly monitoring...

    "Interesting," was the white-haired girl's only response as she took her notebook and walked away. Certain concerns have now been established. Although, Romulus's solution is a flawed one...one could hope there is a better solution. Containment, and refinement, rather than...

    “Yes, I’m aware,” Marie sighed. “I’m looking for the missing link you’ve wiped off the face of your rest of your notes. Unfortunately, you’ve left nothing. But if you’re going to play your game, I can play the game of cryptic warnings too.” The Sage paced around the room. “Did you read page 51...

    ISS Downrider Medical Bay She never rests. And by 'she,' this was Marie. The tingling in her arm stopped bothering her about an hour ago, the feeling of magically regenerated skin. She understood nearly nothing about medicine, so she couldn't help Aradia fix people. She was, however, reading...

    Nave Fully unequipped for combat. This was not the fight Marie should be picking. She had something good for dealing with small things, like those sawblade...monstrosities. She did not have the means to deal with the golem. She needed to reidentify the priorities in the area. Most of the crew...

    Nave Perfect. An arm. Something controllable that conducts electricity. She took some time to learn how the servos were connected to the arm, and after a bit of the arm bending and flexing around. The sound of Reman’s driver disengaging caused her to look up. Reman’s driver spat out its final...

    Well...errr...now what? Now Marie was stuck with a heap of metal and she hardly had the time to disassemble it. She probably, probably wasn’t strong enough to start tearing its arms off, although it didn’t hurt to try. She ripped a strip of cloth off her coat, bandaging the strip of exposed...

    Alipier Observatory Nave Marie screeched as the metal beast leapt in front of her. It was a horrifying creature, a twisted gnarl of steel and electricity, of a haphazard heap. It was...horrifying? No...that wasn’t the right word. It was disgusting. It was useful. How dare it exist. There was...

    Alipier Observatory Right...yes, it was still definitely dangerous out there. And no weapon still. What a horrible situation. Dammit. She was in the same boat as Deimos.

    Nave Right then. Time to get on doing... The crash startled Marie as she reflexively jumped backwards, crashing into the wall with a huff of air as it knocked the wind out of her. But at least she dodged the flying pew. She didn’t have time. No tools, no environment to exploit, nothing. And a...

    Nave Marie's senses refocused. "Huh?" she wondered what Deimos was talking about. "Oh...um...it's...normally internal, but yes. I should probably explain what SARCOM is, or at least what I got from Osco." "It's an Arcadian comms channel for scientific research. She specifically emphasized...

    Alipier Exterior Marie nodded, an agreement to Romulus’s ‘plan.’ Now she had to list out the details of her own. Many details of her own. Also, figure out the cards Romulus was playing.

    [Mid-Episode 2] The Start of the Worst Kind of Joke

    That changed things. A lot of things. First: She was now in the rabbit hole. Not just head through the rabbit hole, but full-body, tumbling down the rabbit hole. And she doubted it would be Wonderland on the other side. Very likely this was just foreshadowing the things that were to come...

    Alipier Observatory Outside Once again Reman was interrupted by a hand over his mouth and a small jolt of electricity to his neck. “Dumbass.” Marie hissed. “Caesar is Romulus. He’s already here.” “And even worse, despite the fact he’s here, we can’t even deal with him unless he engages first...

    Alipier Observatory Outside The more Marie heard, the happier she was that she chose the path of patience. Going down there would mean she would have had fewer options in this likely conflict.

    Marie suddenly jumped back at the noise of the machine turning on. What was this? She'd never seen it in the Institute's systems before.

    ISS Downrider As usual, the crew was being a bunch of misfits. And by the crew, Marie really meant Juryrig. There was no real point in trying to hold the man back; he'd just do something absurd anyways. There was no point in keeping him out of things, and by the look of things...Juryrig...
