What madness was this? To disguise one's form was one matter; to be placed in the hroa of a stranger was another matter entirely. How could this have happened? Why? For what reason could anyone have wished this upon him?

Gurnirel. His partner--his sworn sister--could be in danger. She was capable of defending herself, but if there was a foe in his body...no, perhaps it was this 'Doc'? Even so, she would be confused, and worried. He should return with all haste.

"I am called Naergondir," he told the woman. "I work in the elven languages unit. We should proceed to my response center--1500--with all due haste."

((I expect the UT does its best and some of it comes out as gibberish that Naergondir has by now learned the meaning of--'yeah', for instance. He knows it's an affirmative. Also, that's it for now.))

    " Okay. This is different! Um. " She moved to sit on her beanbag, spilling plastic bits all over the floor. " Here's the thing. You're in my partner, Doc's body. But you're obviously not. Like. Like... more

      • Vania shrugged. "Works for me!"doctorlit, Wed Sep 2 11:07
        She grabbed her bat, then held the door open. " After you, sir elf! " ((By the way, that is pronounced "Nye-er-gon-deer," right?))

          ((He certainly was lying down, but that's no guarantee with an agent. ~DF))
        • Naergondir eyed the bat and...DawnFire, Thu Sep 3 17:44
          ...checked his new body for weapons before walking out the door. He missed his own legs. This...human, presumably, was much taller than a halfling, but he was not as tall as Naergondir, and, not... more

            Vania hummed a bit as they started down the hallway. A few other people were out and about as well, but they seemed in a hurry and didn't glance at the two. Which was just as well, since Vania was... more

              Agent Tolluk's exact phrasing was odd--hardly unusual for English translated into Sindarin--but her meaning was clear enough. " We have found it a pleasant enough place to live in: it is a simple... more

                " Like, inside your RC? That is super-cool! I can't wait to see. I'm so glad my partner got brain-swapped now! " Vania rubbed her hands together, then paused and snickered. " Hey! Can I call you... more

                    "Ah. Right. Fine, then. Whatever." She looked away and began scanning the RC numbers on her side of the hallway. Quietly, she muttered, "Guess it's good we don't get Tolkien missions. The elves... more
