"Telepath? What . . . Wait how did you know what I was thinking?" He widened his eyes as he continued to stare. "You mean . . . you hear my thoughts?" he asked, placing a hand over his heart.

Which, at last, alerted him to a couple of things.

"Gah! No!" Doc immediately wiped his hand on the generic ground. "I didn't mean that!"

He jumped to his feet and looked down at himself. "This isn't me! This isn't me!" He started feeling his face. "Who is—"

Oh, God, there is METAL in my FACEmetalinmyfacemetalinmyskinmetalinmyfleshmetalmetalmetalmetalmetalyou know, this does explain why I was feeling so bendy all of a sudden, thought it was just an adrenaline rush from the alligatorsmetalmetalmetalmetal . . .

  • "Yeah. Broadcasting."Makari, Sat Sep 5 01:44
    She eyed him carefully some more, looking more and more uncertain. "You're not normally a telepath, are you," she said eventually, confused. "I mean, I'm gonna give you that much credit, though I do... more

      • "I don't hear, you send."Makari, Sat Sep 5 02:13
        "At least, I think that's how it works." Kat shifted, lifting her head from her paws in curiosity at her new friend's reaction-- and then ducking again just as quickly, at the onslaught of thoughts.... more
        • "I'm sorry! I'm sorry!"doctorlit, Sat Sep 5 09:30
          Doc leaned stiffly against the wall, careful to keep his hands very far away from himself. He shut his eyes and tried carefully not to think any conscious thoughts, though he couldn't prevent a few... more
          • She huffed a little, still miffed.Makari, Sat Sep 5 19:31
            But at the least Kat could straighten again, and this time she got all four paws under her with a minimum of struggling. It helped, she decided, having been a Luxray before. It was still super weird, ... more
            • Doc's shoulders finally relaxed a bit.doctorlit, Sat Sep 5 22:41
              "Yeah. Nice to at least have someone else stuck this way with me. I'm Doc, Floater, usually male, unpierced and not psychic in any way. Um, I would normally shake your hand, but . . ." Nonetheless,... more
              • It was a start.Makari, Sun Sep 6 00:17
                Kat eyed him a moment longer, then, bemused, sat down and offered him a paw instead. She was hardly equipped for handshakes in this form, but it was close enough. "Nice t'meetcha," she said, sounding ... more
                • Doc thought for a moment.doctorlit, Sun Sep 6 00:30
                  "Probably. Or Experiments and Research studying author wraiths, and something went weird. Do you want to try checking one of them out? Or should we go to one of the Flowers?"
                  • "Mmmmh."Makari, Sun Sep 6 01:11
                    Kat made a thinking noise. Her lips curled again, the expression of someone whose primary experience with Flowers is the Sunflower Official. "Nah, let's try with the techies first. More explosions,... more
                    • Doc blinked.doctorlit, Sun Sep 6 01:56
                      He certainly didn't see how explosions would improve the situation, but the other agent seemed sure of herself; she probably had more experience than Doc. "Works for me. Are you okay walking, though? ... more
                      • Explosions already helped.Makari, Sun Sep 6 02:03
                        But in theory, Kat was pretty sure tracking down the culprits and growling at them would help. She shook herself, got back to her feet, and walked a few steps. "I'm fine," she said, tail twitching... more
                        • "That's true.doctorlit, Sun Sep 6 10:32
                          Like I said, it's almost like author wraiths, except wraiths don't start out in a body. And they don't make the old personality move out, I don't think." He looked down, but then quickly back up. "I... more
                          • "You don't know?"Makari, Mon Sep 7 02:17
                            Kat gave him a look of thinly disguised horror, which didn't communicate over-well on her current face shape. "Pokémon. A Luxray is a fully evolved electric-type that favors physical attack, rather... more
                            • Doc listened with rising confusion.doctorlit, Mon Sep 7 09:43
                              "Ah. Well. I had heard of Pokémon, just not this one. My partner does the video games. I do the books." At Katrina's last remark, he paused and gave her a hard stare. "Where else would they be? I... more
