Hey! So we've got like a week... or less, really, til this masquerade thing and was just wondering if you were going! Not that I'm asking you to it--I didn't even technically ask Hermann--but just seeing if you're interested in going or what. I've gotta stay on top of this or you and Hermann crawl into your math hermitages and don't resurface for like ever. But yeah, this is your "come out and play" message for the week.

Hey. Um.

[There's the sound of a muffled hospital PA in the background, and the rumble of traffic. George is calling from a bench outside the trauma center, where he's basically been living for the past week.]

I got dumped, and the hospital actually won't let me work anymore hours so. What are your Christmas plans?
driftsintobuffetline: (oh shit--)
From: [personal profile] driftsintobuffetline

Qubit, this is Newt.
I don't know if you're reading this, but--look, for the record, I rarely use the damn neural interfacing with the comms and it took a while to remember we could do that and we don't have our phones on us anymore and I just wanted you to know I'm here, wherever here is. In space, I guess. That's what they're telling us. The Russians say we're on the shuttle. But we're literally pissing into a grate on the floor so we're not talking zero-g.

I'm going to tell you what I know or what they tell us and what I think I'm figuring out. I'm trusting you to take this info and do something with it. Come on, Qubit.

Check in on Hermann for me, would you? I'm not--I'm going to try not to info dump on him because I know him. He's going to work himself to death and you know as much as I think you need a day off, you're not as invested in this as he is. You can filter through what I can dump on you and not make this personal in the same way it's way too personal for Hermann.

If-- Tell him I miss him, okay?

There's between 50-60 of us in here. It's tight. It's pretty inhumane. Basically sardines in a metal jail cell. Some of us are in scrubs. I don't know what warranted that. Weapons checks, maybe. There's something call Lackey...I'm thinking AI. It put us here, or claims to have. Not sure if this means the Russians have a Porter, but I'm guessing so. Did we ever figure out what happened to Lachesis? Maybe that needs followup.

I don't know if they're going for a Porter arms race or if they're just trying to steal all of us Imports. They say we belong to the Soviets now.

I don't have powers. I don't think anyone in this room does. What kind of power suppressants (organic or mechanical) I don't know.

We're guarded. They're changing guards out periodically. This facility has to be a lot bigger than a Shuttle would allow.

Anyway, please keep an eye on him. I don't know what-- he's probably disconnected from the Drift because I've been suppressed and you know how nuts it made me to have distance between us and disconnected from the Drift ...we've never tested that before. Christ, Qubit, we've never tested that before. It could kill him. I have no idea what that feels like. It's dead here. Just dead. Nothing but emptiness. Normal, but it feels silent. Comparatively it feels silent, like a house after a house-guest leaves, and I miss him. Tell him I miss him. I miss his dumb presence in my brain. Please tell him that. Tell him he's everything. He'll know that's from me, then.

I hope they don't have you. I hope you're not on another shuttle...SHIT why the fuck am I thinking that now, why didn't I think of that before I sent you this message. Please be safe somewhere, you fucking Morrissey wannabe. Do me a huge favor and check on Hermann and make sure he isn't going mad and please. Don't you die, okay? Really.

[On this, the most important romance-related holiday of the year, Qubit receives a card delivered by a flying pig. The pig was probably supposed to look sort of like cupid, as is appropriate for the day, but Mabel made the wings way more bat-like than cherubic. Oops!

There’s a small chocolate heart taped to the back, and a little note: Happy Valentine’s Day! Have the best day EVER!! sorry I went to Antarctica

Heeeeey, dude. How're you feeling? Less ...upchucky yet? Just checking up on you since you know, we only ever manage to talk when shit's going down, and since shit's not currently going down, now seemed a good time to call. So how are you?

From: [personal profile] driftsintobuffetline
So, uh, the end of May is our half-year mark--Hermann's and mine--and Hermann said I had to wait until we hit six months before I even attempted a proposal and you know how the sort-of one went during the Occupation. I guess what I'm trying to say, is, dude, would you think it's presumptuous of me to start, well, LOOKING for a ring? Or would it'd, actually, be bad if I didn't? I mean, do you think Hermann EXPECTS me to propose, do you think he PREFERS I didn't ...I don't want to disappoint him and I don't want to annoy him and ...


Help me, Q.B.1. you're my only hope.

Um, hi! Or rather good evening.

[She'll try to remain as formal as she possibly can at this point.]

My name is Nike Lemercier. I was once one of the recent imPorts that arrived to this world almost a month ago. I've been wishing to speak to you after a Jacob Taylor informed me of your interest in helping others in way of humanitarian efforts through inventions, if I do recall his description of you correctly. [A pause as she translates her informal speech to a more formal one; trying not to break the current flow and all.] Are you still working in that area? If you are, I would love to speak to you more about it. I would like to help, if it is possible to. Please call me back whenever you can...?

[And she'll end the message there. Hopefully it didn't sound too bad.]

So... You were going to tell me more about your Super Team? Don't think I forgot about that. And I mean the original ones, not the team you're assembling here--not that I don't want to hear about them, too, I mean, I'm sure they're cool, but tell me about your Super Squad back home. Obviously you were the brains, the Q. Did someone have a invisible jet? A watchtower in space? A ring that gave them super-powers? A high-tech multi-billion dollar corporation that functioned as a front for all the super-gadgets? How many aliens did you have?

I apologize for the delay in getting back to you, but it's taken a good deal of thought. Newton insisted on a code name and at long last, we've reached an agreement.

So if you're still recruiting, I'd like to formally offer my skill set for your team.

Mr Qubit, prior to my disappearance by the Porter at the beginning of May, you'd requested to speak with me in person once my sentence had been commuted. On my return, I was informed that had been done.
