Uh, I've... not given it much thought.

Y'know, it's like... there's one kid, Stacy. She's in the nursery. She was rescued from a badfic - an OC bit like me - and she was put in a wheelchair and just kinda left there 'cause the only reason she existed was to prove how sweet and kind the Sue was. She's pretty much nonverbal and she's almost totally unable to function, but she... she draws, and paints, and she enjoys that, and she's happy here. We think. Asking an AAT sufferer what kinda gadgets they wanna use is kinda like asking Stacie what her favourite dance steps are. It's, um, it's pretty insensitive. So don't do that please.

Also, there is a solution; don't use tech or go anywhere near it.

"No. And if I did, there are plenty of others salvaged from missions. I have a weapon."

  • Ooh, ooh, I have a question for both of you!Alex Dives, Tue May 19 17:34
    Wobbles, if there was a piece of tech you wanted to use, what would it be? I'm looking into devising a way around your problem! Notary, do you have your own sonic screwdriver? I've always wanted to... more

      • Oh, oh man, I'm sorry, Mrs. Wobbles.Alex Dives, Tue May 19 17:59
        And ooh, what kind of weapon? A staser, I bet. What kind of staser? How long have you had it, and has it ever needed repairs?

          • Alright, awesome! Thank you!Alex Dives, Tue May 19 18:07
            And just so you know, if it ever needs repairs or maybe upgrades, I'm more than happy to take a look at it! ((What is this madness? Someone who doesn't immediately draw her wrath?))
            • "Indeed."Spinel Promotor Notary of the ConCounOfGaInEx, Tue May 19 18:15
              "It has been sufficient for my sole foray off-base, but should it become necessary I shall prepare the paperwork in advance. Indeed, I may be able to help you right now..." The Notary scribbled down... more
              • Triplicate, huh?Alex Dives, Tue May 19 18:16
                No problem! Haven't had to do this since tenth grade, but it won't be that hard. And sweet, a laser screwdriver! I've got a leftover Sue laser spanner, but that's it. You're the best! :D
                • "It is... gratifying to be appreciated. At last. Thank you."Spinel Promotor Notary of the ConCounOfGaInEx, Tue May 19 18:21
                  "Remember, in triplicate, then get them to me. I'll make sure they're absolutely unrefusable. It's the only way to make any headway against those people."
                  • Hey, no problem!Alex Dives, Tue May 19 18:23
                    You know, you're a lot nicer than most people give you credit for. *beams and runs off, papers clutched to his chest*

                      The Notary considered calling after him, but in the end just stalked off down the corridor. It was a victory, a good piece in her long game against the Grunt, but it felt... hollower than normal. Or... more

                        The Notary would find the forms, perfectly filled out in triplicate, sitting nearly stacked on her desk in her RC. A sticky note on top of the stack read " See? I told you it would be easy. —Alex "
                        • The Notary just looked at them and sighed.Scapegrace, Tue May 19 19:18
                          Oooh, but that boy knew how to treat a lady right. She focussed her brain, quite violently, and when her ears stopped ringing from the slap she sat down and filed the forms. They were, true to his... more

                            • Whistling "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" to himself, he turned it on and bent over his ice gun, intent on finally making that last modification to the melt settings and blissfully unaware... more

                                          Alex shrugged, looking sheepish. "Sorry, can't really help you there. I'm good with machines, not people." He glanced over at the Guardsman. "Um, Mister, I'm really sorry... is it okay? The... more

                                              Alex gnawed his lip in a manner reminiscent of his sister. "I mean, I offered to repair her staser if it ever needed it, but that's it, really."
                                              • The Guardsman shook his head. "You're sure you didn't do anything else? The DIA confiscation system isn't triggered very often-- you need special permissions and such for that."
                                                • "But it was all about rights to handle her staser and repair it and whatnot, I read the fine print." Alex shrugged, looking helpless. "I have no idea how this happened."
