Telrim was in the process of walking straight through this area, intent on a task that led her elsewhere in a hurry. But her steps slow as she takes notice of where she is; she turns to frown at the sign, brushing a strand of hair from her eyes as she hesitates. She takes a chair, in the end, rubbing her head. She feels another headache coming on. She might as well stop to soothe it before she goes back to work. A few minutes won’t hurt anything now.

“Would you rather be there in the aftermath of a disaster?” she asks distantly. “Or would you be more… comfortable if you were sent elsewhere?”

--- the United States government averted the Fiscal Cliff crisis by taking more money out of every single American's paycheck, continually from this day forward, while keeping the Bush tax cuts and excluding the rich people from paying anymore money than they ever did before.

Does that seem okay to everybody?

Blake Dec. 20th, 2012 @ 12:57 pm
I saw the Disney/Pixar movie Bolt a long time ago. There's a character in it named Blake but I can't remember who he was. Looked it up online but every search just says there's a Blake in the film without saying who it is, what he does.

Issek is sitting alone, frowning intensely as he decides on a question. Appropriate wording. Innocuous subject. It’s not easy. He’s been tremendously bored, but that doesn’t mean he’s used to feigning making conversation with aliens. Here’s one that’s sufficiently amusing: “At what point should you ‘get with the times’?”

Then for something important, “Also, I require opinions regarding... pulling rank on a friend.”

Returning to Arms Oct. 24th, 2012 @ 11:34 pm
The Nexus has caught Telrim off-guard for the first time in a while. Rolling with the interruption, she’s seated in front of a table with a small scanner in hand, checking her Dracon beam’s workings with methodical precision. She doesn’t look up as she speaks. “I’m coming to… let’s call it the end of an interlude. It’s likely I’ll be returning to work I haven’t done in several years.” There’s the briefest flicker of a smile. “Any suggestions on how to prepare?”

She pauses, either to listen or to consider her handiwork so far. “How attached do you become to the places you stay?”

this has bugged me forever. Oct. 2nd, 2012 @ 11:17 pm

It’s been a while since Telrim’s had time for anything but business. But there must have been a lull back home, because once again there’s a Controller in the Nexus, quietly watching the people around her. As always the Yeerk is privately sizing them up – hosts, threats, interesting specimens - but her eyes follow the human-looking ones in particular.

She lifts her voice to ask clearly, “How much stock do you place in rumour?”

Néo and Pippi are dressed for spring, by the standards of their world. Which is to say, not "dressed" as such.Collapse )

Néo seems to be nerving hirself to ask the requisite question, a process of several minutes' duration. Eventually, just as Pippi is opening her mouth to preempt her husband, Néo blurts it out:

"Is it outdoor sex season in your world? If so, is it public sex?"

Unburden Your Soul and Chow Down on Some Candy Apr. 9th, 2012 @ 11:51 pm
::Schuldig is sitting on the couch of his Nexus living room, eating a Cadbury Creme Egg in a way that'd be suggestive only if you have a perverted mind. Candy dishes on nearby tables featuring Peeps, chocolate eggs, jellybeans, Cadbury Creme Eggs, and chocolate-covered marshmallow bunnies.::

I'm celebrating St. Marks Down Day, a feast day for the patron saint of marked-down holiday candy, so I'm feeling generous. And I'm on a sugar high. What's bothering you, Nexus? I'll listen and offer my opinion on how to get through it.

Also, feel free to take some candy. I went overboard as usual. Have a seat and eat!

[A human in her early thirties finds her way into the Nexus. She's a bit worn-looking, and has that look in her eyes that sort of says may have mental illness or maybe it's just low blood sugar. No fancy clothing, just jeans and t-shirt from late 20th-Century Earth. The one where people like Batman and Wolverine exist only in comic books. She carries a small backpack as though she doesn't recall what's in it but that its contents are important. She sits at a small table with her back to the wall with backpack in front of her and begins fiddling with its fasteners.]

"Um. How does one remember?"

Text Message Jan. 4th, 2012 @ 09:32 am
The following arrives at as a text message, in an attempt to be anonymous and not worry people at home who are more than worried enough about other things. If anyone with hacking skills gives it a try, though, it wouldn't be too hard to find the message is being sent from inside the Nexus.

Anyone here have any ideas on how to survive being at ground zero for an explosion that can take out a space station?

Or for how to survive free-falling from orbit after that?

Of Fatherhood and Awkward Reticence Dec. 29th, 2011 @ 01:15 pm
It's an unusually tall Transformer that makes his way along with a slow, measured stride. His expression, even with the mask on his face, is clearly pensive. He pauses at the sign, kneeling quite low to read it, then looks up. He sighs heavily.

"Is it right to keep knowledge from your own child, even if you feel it's for his protection?" he wonders. His tone makes it clear this is something that has weighed on his mind for a good while.

Clarification Dec. 27th, 2011 @ 09:09 pm
Class warefare has been an ongoing popular phrase to toss around in recent times. However, it seems limited as it's largely only being used in one particular direction. The rich want their taxes cut while the not so rich they'd rather pay more taxes. The rich accuse class warfare to any who tell them this is wrong, or suggests that they need to pay more taxes as they can afford it.

What seems to be missed, the reversal, leads to my question: Isn't it also class warfare when the rich expect to be more exempt from paying taxes than those that don't have as much money as they? To have the not so rich and poor pay more than the rich, I mean.

((Ok, this is an OOC question about an LJ issue. I'm just using this login because it's convenient at the moment and I haven't recovered the password for my OOC one after the last bad computer crash I had. I haven't contacted support (yet) because I'm pretty certain it's on my end and only occurs on this computer.

LJ's captcha doesn't show for me. Not just the image of the two words, but the whole thing. As far as I can tell images and java are not disabled. When I tried disabling java I got text for typing in the two words but still no image. I'm running Ubuntu Linux (Natty Narwhal version), and Firefox. I tried disabling ad-blockers and that didn't work either. From what I've read Ubuntu does not have a default on firewall and I haven't enabled one. I've tried telling Firefox not to use a proxy. So far nothing at all has worked. What could I be missing that's causing this? It's seriously starting to drive me nuts.))

Issek’s out of hiking gear and back in the Nexus, tweaking the settings on some kind of scanner. And occasionally tugging at the sleeves of his white lab coat, which he’s wearing over his more casual clothes but isn’t really comfortable with.

“I am a neuroscientist with some curiosity about this place. Which of you would be interested in participating in a momentary scan of your nervous systems?”A brief reflection on the peculiarities of humanoids, and he adds, “For science.”

“Additionally, if Samus Aran is in the area I would appreciate knowing her location.” This last draws him a hard (if pointedly neutral) look from Telrim, who’s seated at a Nexus console within earshot of screams for help.

Christmas Elf Dec. 16th, 2011 @ 04:41 pm
The truck is here, sitting pretty in the light of the sign after arriving sometime in what passes for the night around here. It's another white one, this time with candy cane stripe accents, and the elf that accompanies it is busy setting up shop. A tall and lanky young fellow with brown hair and frank green eyes, he's singing a Christmas song to himself softly as he gets the door open and the first presents sorted to the front of the pile. This done, he dusts off his nicely embroidered red cowboy shirt, checks on his dark green jeans and his spotless cowboy boots, and then grins at the Nexus in general as a pretty little burgundy coloured ferret climbs up onto his shoulder and pips softly.

"Okay, folks. Who wants a Christmas gift? I've read the list, and I have yours here."

((He's got one gift for each character who replies. Please put some inkling of who/what your character is/likes somewhere in your reply if it's not on their bio. Coal is also available. Feel free to bring more than one of your characters to the Elf. And this post will be open and active till Ukrainian Christmas, in January.))

It's getting close to Halloween in Lichtenstein's world which means the days are closing up earlier and the nighttime freeze is working extra shifts. The colder it gets, the more tempting it is to move into the Nexus permanently. Like last time, he's sitting with a book in his lap. Except this time it has his own writing in it. He spins a worn down pencil between his fingers as he thinks. 

"Do you ever encourage stereotypes or misconceptions that are linked to you? Why do you do it? Or else, why do you refuse to?"

Telrim is dressed for the great outdoors today, in rather expensive-looking hiking gear that happens to be left over from Yeerk antics past. She’s looking rather satisfied as she sips a hard-earned coffee. A little distance away, a man in similar clothes has just stumbled over his own feet. That winded cursing? Music to a best friend’s ears.

“Which is the best way to get the measure of someone?” she asks. Absently she nudges the bulging rucksack propped against her legs. She’s a bit excited, really. Maybe more than a bit. But she’s not letting that show even to her host. “Watching them in their own home, or when they’re facing the strange and unfamiliar?”

There’s a girl in a t-shirt and jeans, rucksack slung over her shoulder, snapping photos of the Nexus sign (poor camera). Eventually she looks over her shoulder and turns around, apparently unperturbed by the Nexus in general. She goes ‘hmmm’ for another few minutes, looking around with wide, interested eyes. Get close enough for her to notice you and you'll be flashed a warm smile.

“OK,” she says suddenly, “OK, I’ve got one: what’s the best way to ask a question?”

In old bluejeans, black boots, a leather biker's jacket and purple hair down to there, and with a flask of rum (and quite possibly a Glock or Beretta) hidden in her jacket pocket, along with a pair of silver-coated brass knuckles) and Leela's sauntering into the nexus with a somewhat old, familiar grin.

"So, what kind of trouble have you been up to lately?" She asks with a smirk. "And before you ask? I'm wasn't there, didn't do it, and I don't know your husband, son, or nephew. In short? I'm innocent."

Lichtenstein has set himself up on a couch with a book that looks like heavy reading to say the least. He's practically cradling it as he reads but, eventually, he has to look up and take a break. While he doesn't completely stop sheltering the book, he does look sit back a bit and look around and the people nearby.

Might as well ask a question or else he'll read until his eyes go dry. "What unlikely places do you get inspiration from?"

A strange little someone has come into the Nexus, and will only sit and stare for a long, long time. He's all covered up; oversized hoodie, scarf, boots, and sunglasses! The most important thing of all, to him.

He's quiet and could be easily missed, but eventually he has a question.

“How good are you at making choices for other people?” Bit of a thorny question there, but Telrim’s checking through a shopping list and stuffing it into her pocket. So maybe the Controller has an innocuous excuse.

“What difference does it make if they’re a friend or…” She tilts her head thoughtfully, holds back a smile. “Not?”
