silver_reign: (Dynamo - EH!?)

Dakki! Come hither! Post-Mayfield-ish? ... Something?

[personal profile] silver_reign 2013-10-05 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
[He was never one to go and admit when he needed help. Only because he knew when it was best to depart from a battle he couldn't win. Of course, in doing so, the silver haired reploid had always escaped with minor scratches to his armor... things that were always an easy repair.

However, this time around something was off. It was dark that evening, and he had somehow failed in judging his opponent. It didn't take long and he was soon fleeing for his very life. The fight was almost one sided... almost as if his apparent foe was another copy of himself and knew all his attacks and dodges.

After a long series of saber beam slashes, fired shots, and constant leaps to simply get away, Dynamo's frame couldn't withstand further damage and finally collapsed. As soon as he fell, his attacker seemed to simply disappear. Now what was the point of all that fighting?

Oh. It seemed his adversary was startled off by where the mercenary's frame had fallen. Right smack dab in a civilian area. Dragging himself up to stand, the silver haired reploid finally made his way to a familiar residence. With his energy fading quicker than he wanted it to, he simply hurled himself at the door. That should get someone's attention.

... or so he hoped. Really, he wasn't sure if that was the best idea in the world at that point. However, he wasn't making the best decisions at the moment.]

Post-Mayfield-y something works for me!

[The power supply that kept the 'better place' running seemed determined to hold out for longer than the smartest folk in town had theorized. And there were, apparently, systems on board that were restless and undocumented. Couple that with not every surviving (or restored) resident being good-natured and well-meaning... well, nothing's perfect. Just better than what came before it.

The house that Dakki had made for herself was modest, in comparison to some of the wild mansions and towers and palaces that some residents had gone and crafted. It had that Gurhalian futuristic light-strips-and-curves look to it, the best imitation of the architecture on the Guardian's Colony that she could manage. Which meant that the door was a solid but light metal alloy that resonated spectacularly when Dynamo when crashing on into it.

She dropped the book that she had been reading and bolted for the door, her saber pulled out of nano-storage in a fluid motion on her way over. She slapped the unlock pad, the door wooshed open, and she stared straight ahead for an instant, entirely missing that there was a collapsed reploid on her front step.

For an instant. Just an instant.]

....Dynamo! Oh Holy Light, Dynamo...!

[She dropped to one knee and reached for him, taking in his injuries and his state as quickly as she could. But then her head lifted and her optics narrowed.] Who did this to you?! [Where her voice had been anguished at first, now it was angry. And maybe whatever did it was still out there...]
silver_reign: (Dynamo - In all seriousness...)


[personal profile] silver_reign 2013-10-05 05:24 am (UTC)(link)
[There were quite a few things that kept repeating over and over in his head. Bits of data and damage reports were of the norm, but what he was trying to replay was how he had wound up in such a situation. A glare shot across his face when he couldn't find anything on his attacker. Not even a rough scan of what the other was.

So he was a little... well, broken, but that wasn't going to stop him from getting his repairs and going right after whoever it was that did this to him. Yet, his plots of revenge would have to be put on hold when he realized Dakki finally answered the door.

No, she had answered a few seconds ago, he just wasn't registering it just yet. The reploid had attempted to speak a few words but found his systems were having none of that. Nothing but agonized groans escaped him. His gaze was tired as he looked up to her, before he closed his eyes.]

[So much lag in his response... what had he been hit with? How hard had it hit him? All of the worst-case scenarios were processing within her, one after the other. Disrupted internal connections, fried circuitry, ruptured fluid conduits causing further shorts... he could be on the brink of total shutdown, for what little she knew. Anger was building within her rapidly, rage towards whoever could have done this, an energy that would soon need venting... but she saw no target for it. It would have to be put towards something useful.

Her weapon vanished back into storage, and she slipped her arms beneath his knees and back, ready to pick him up. Just one thing needed doing first... she sent the command through to her nano transformer, and had it release one of her Star Atomizers. Maybe it had taken weeks and weeks to get a proper item store for herself, but it was worth it, to be able to handle a situation like this. The highly advanced medicine dispersed, engulfing the both of them. Nano-machines and cell-stimulating photonic energy washed over Dynamo, soothing pain and mending wounds. But he's hardly human. Nor CAST. Dakki had little idea as to how much it would help him... but surely enough to at least make moving him non-hazardous and non-painful.]

I have you... easy now. I'm going to move you.

[And hup! She lifted him in one smooth motion, then brought him to the living room couch, where she set him back down again.]

Can you hear me? See me? Is that any better...? D... Dynamo?

[She was no medic. She knew nothing of repairs. What could she do?]
silver_reign: (Dynamo - You talk too much)

[personal profile] silver_reign 2013-10-06 12:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[His systems began to shut down certain functions in order to conserve power. His own automatic repair systems began to work on over time to attempt and he was for certain he'd need to go into a power save mode of sorts. It was similar to sleep... much like a computer and a human.

Dakki's little healing item seemed to help fix some of the more serious internal problems. His systems were, in a sense, running on safe mode. He'd be fine with plenty of rest, much like a human... and the fluids that leaked from his frame weren't much different from injuries sustained on a creature of flesh and blood. Though he was still very much a machine.

At hearing her voice, he cracked open an eye and scanned his surroundings. He tried to shift to look away from her, with little success... only because he didn't want anyone to see him in such a pitiful condition. His body was now very much too weak to do much of anything. So finally, he glanced up to her and attempted a half smile.]

... ... Eh, hey.

[personal profile] photonicfighter 2013-10-07 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
[She chose to be relieved when he cracked an eye open and then tried not to look at her. It meant that his mental processes were undamaged, if he was being so... so Dynamo. And relief was better than anger, either at him or the one that did this to him.]

What've you gotten yourself into...?

[Dakki knelt beside the couch, she sighed, and she placed a hand lightly on his cheek.]

I... I think you're going to be okay. I think. I'll get someone to come and have a look at you. I...

[Words escaped her entirely. She had no idea what to say to him, what to do with him. Normally, this would be enough. Secure the injured and seek out the one that did it. But this was different because it was him, and she couldn't just leave him.

Maybe that would be for the best. The hand on his cheek slipped to his shoulder, resting lightly.]

...I'll stay here with you. In case whatever did this to you is still out there.
silver_reign: (Dynamo - I dont trust you)

[personal profile] silver_reign 2013-10-07 05:03 am (UTC)(link)
[This was completely awkward for him. One, he couldn't recall a time he ever wound up in such condition. Two, he didn't want others to see him this way... especially her. He looked away again.]

It's... it's not as bad as it looks.

[Not that he knew if that was true or not. A glance was cast over to her hand, and he returned his gaze to her.]

... Thank you. For... I'll be fine... Don't worry too much...?

[Of course he was worried. For her, somehow. Only for the fact that if whatever did this to him, it had the chances of doing it to her as well. Not that, he'd ever put it out into the open in such an obvious manner.

A small groan escaped him and he reached over to place a hand on her own.]
photonicfighter: (Pouty and Perplexed)

Oh god I miss my icons T_T

[personal profile] photonicfighter 2013-10-07 05:35 am (UTC)(link)
Dynamo... Don't be like that.

[That was the scolding face that she was making. The 'you are exasperating me' face. It didn't last, because he was still hurt and she was still very much worried. She turned her hand over, and locked her fingers light with his.]

Of course you'll be fine. Of course. Don't... don't strain yourself.

[It's no easier being on the opposite side of this sort of thing. Hadn't she been very much uncomfortable, all laid out in Doctor Aston's basement, with a far less injured Dynamo nearby?]

Can I get you anything? Do anything? I could...

[She pursed her lips, then shook her head. No, she couldn't leave his side. It might wound his pride, to have her fuss over him so, but she might lose him entirely if whatever attacked him lurked nearby.]

I'm staying here. I am. It's only fair. It's only right.
silver_reign: (Dynamo - In all seriousness...)

I know the feeling!

[personal profile] silver_reign 2013-10-07 06:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[A flinch, but it was hard to tell if it was from her slight scolding, or if it was from his injuries. Though he looked to her again with a somewhat of a sheepish grin.]

Hey now...

[He tried to think of something clever, something witty. However, words failed him. With good reason. Had he been thinking clearly, he would've shut off his pain receptors before they had a chance to stay locked in. He was far too focused on not dying at that point to think of it. Though in the long run, perhaps it was a good idea he didn't.]

I think... I think I'd be comfortable with you... just staying with me.

[At times, his gaze seemed unfocused. Only because he was concentrating on the various errors and warnings that would flash across his vision now and again. He was out of the critical damage, so he could cross that off his check list of things that needed to be looked at.]

I'm... Look I didn't mean to...
needsteaplz: ("...")

yo angry bird! i mean...ankh please

[personal profile] needsteaplz 2013-10-12 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[Japanese summers suck to say the least. The heat and humidity was enough to sap out the energy out of everyone. It's also the time for icey sweets. Well, it would've been for the apartment Saori lived in. She opened her freezer door to find picked clean. Her attention turned a certain someone who was lounging on the couch.]

Oi, Ankh, you ate all the ice pops I made didn't you?
birdinthehand: (Curious)

Late Ankh tags are go!

[personal profile] birdinthehand 2013-10-28 04:10 am (UTC)(link)

[He hadn't been listening to the question, so much. His eyes were on the TV, and his mouth was occupied with finishing off the last of the very last homemade ice pop. The last bit was pulled from the plastic base and crunched in his mouth, as he tilted his head towards Saori and blinked at her... not innocently, precisely. For Ankh is never innocent of anything. More like vacantly.]

photonicfighter: (Dakki upgrade - close)

From the depths of the inbox, I strike!

[personal profile] photonicfighter 2013-10-28 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
[He wanted her to stay. He wanted her to stay. How could she be exasperated with him, if that's what he wanted? He needed kindness now. And she could provide it. She very much wanted to provide it. Very gently, she squeezed his hand.]

Then I'll stay with you. As long as you need.

[As he began to protest and apologize, she dipped in and placed a light kiss on his lips. It was an... impulsive thing, but given the mood that had taken her? It seemed right.]

I know. It's okay.
needsteaplz: (no just no)

All Ankh tags are awesome

[personal profile] needsteaplz 2013-10-29 06:56 am (UTC)(link)
[Saori sighed as she went over to the freeloader. She really should've seen that coming. Her hands rest on the back of the couch as she leaned over to peer at him.]

Don't I get a thank you at least for making them all? Still, you could've saved one or two for me.

[Cue a fake hurt pout.]
birdinthehand: (Lounging)


[personal profile] birdinthehand 2013-10-30 01:17 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you.

[It's said with no real conviction, and he even throws in a roll of his eyes just to show that he thinks the whole concept of 'thank you' is foolish.]

You can make more, can't you? Make yourself more.

[That was simple enough, wasn't it? Mix sweet things, put it into the molds, wait... hers always tasted better than the ones he had once attempted on his own, though.

In an additional display of Greeed-ish uncaring, he flicked the bare popsicle stick-mold to the nearby coffee table.]
needsteaplz: (A smile for the customers)

[personal profile] needsteaplz 2013-11-16 07:31 am (UTC)(link)
Oh you...

[She lets out a sigh and gently tilts his head up so they're making eye contact with hers. Sometimes she wondered if she was too generous with her treats and Ankh. She would've charged him for the ingredients but she knew he would've just tried to get money from Eiji or any other non-direct methods.]

They take the right kind of ingredients and time to freeze. Ingredients aren't the problem but the waiting can kill me sometimes.

In fact, I do have a few in the freezer now but they're not quite ready yet. BUT, I get first dibs.
birdinthehand: (Takayuki - Confused)

[personal profile] birdinthehand 2013-12-01 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[His eyes widen as she touches his face and makes him make eye contact. What's she up to, now? Whatever it is, it has his attention. And her eyes are bright. And her hands are warm. All good things, those...]

...there's more? [He frowns.] I didn't see any others.
needsteaplz: (Smile/lol)

[personal profile] needsteaplz 2013-12-03 09:01 am (UTC)(link)
[She laughs and leans in to kiss him on the cheek.]

If I told you, it wouldn't be a secret anymore. Besides, waiting makes the rewards so much sweeter and there's the matter of what I get in return.
silver_reign: (Dynamo - You talk too much)

From the... forgotten... realms of... somewhere

[personal profile] silver_reign 2013-12-04 12:10 am (UTC)(link)
[The kiss... while it was surprisingly enough returned, it was weak from his end but still clear he tried. He stared up at her, long and hard. As if searching for the right words. Frowning he simply brought her hand up to his face and gently nuzzled it and closed his eyes.]

Thank you.

[Reaching up with his other arm, he moved to try to remove his helmet. Only he was soon finding out that moving was a task in itself.]

... Little help?
photonicfighter: (Dakki upgrade - crouch)

/zombie groans?

[personal profile] photonicfighter 2013-12-04 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
[That was such a long look that he was giving her. Had she done the right thing, kissing him? But it was silly to worry about such things. With him wanting to hold her hand like that, how could a kiss have been the wrong thing to do?]

...aah. Of course, yes, yes.

[He'd likely be more comfortable with the helmet off, sure. She had to feel about to see if it needed to unfasten anywhere, and she did so carefully, her touch light. With that determined (and any latches or catches unlatched and uncaught), she'd gently pull it off and set it on the floor beside the couch.

And immediately afterwards, she'd take a moment to smooth his hair.]
silver_reign: (Dynamo - Suit |:)


[personal profile] silver_reign 2013-12-04 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[Sure, after a few clasps were undone and the helmet was finally removed, he felt somewhat more comfortable. At least in how his head was resting. For him, this entire moment was beyond his understanding. One, winding up in condition still seemed impossible. Two, feeling some what guilty because he wound up in such a position. Three... why was he feeling guilty in the first place?

Here he was though. Looking up at he, he parted his lips as if to say something... only found he couldn't manage any words.]
scentofmakai: (they can take our fists)

Annika yo

[personal profile] scentofmakai 2013-12-13 12:46 am (UTC)(link)
So I'm curious. What kinds of stuff do you make, back home?

[You have at your disposal one (1) actually interested in your work fly demon.]
absentapothecary: (Curious)

Aw yisss

[personal profile] absentapothecary 2013-12-13 01:05 am (UTC)(link)

[She looked up from hand-stitching yet another pair of gloves out of cheap Tower-provided supplies, and blinked.]

I mostly make large smoking craters, back home... oh! Unless you meant like this? [And she holds up the sewing that she's working on as an example.]
scentofmakai: (and we will shake our rumps)

[personal profile] scentofmakai 2013-12-13 01:10 am (UTC)(link)
Either one works! I'm better at the craters myself.
absentapothecary: (Happy)

[personal profile] absentapothecary 2013-12-13 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
Craters are a lot more straightforward! And you don't have to spend days skimming the lots at the auction house to find the supplies to make them. Oooof, I don't miss that...
scentofmakai: (they can take our bones)

[personal profile] scentofmakai 2013-12-13 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
Sometimes you need something else that's more useful than craters, though. And I guess that's a skill I should pick up someday.
absentapothecary: (Default)

[personal profile] absentapothecary 2013-12-13 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
Sometimes, sometimes... I made a lovely flying carpet, once. Took a while to get all of the magical bits and bobs, but aah, it came in handy....

I can give you some sewing lessons, if you'd like?
scentofmakai: (for a little touch of heavenly light)

[personal profile] scentofmakai 2013-12-13 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
I'd like that! Not for a flying carpet, though, I can do that under my own power.
absentapothecary: (Happy)

[personal profile] absentapothecary 2013-12-13 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
I can start you off with bags and shirts and cloaks and things! Those're all pretty useful, no matter what you make them out of. Aaah, but what I wouldn't give for a few bolts of netherweave....
scentofmakai: (over old dead grass)

[personal profile] scentofmakai 2013-12-13 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
What's netherweave? I haven't heard of it.
