Squishy no more

Bumblebee appears by the sign with the flash and slight swish of a PINpoint, then scans the area and clicks to herself before stepping forward and asking,
"Has anyone seen Gen or Psych? They've been gone for nearly a week, and that's not normal."
You are feeling:
Unfortunately Faye was in the middle of a biological equivalent of a BSOD, so she hasn't noticed them...
"No... I-I haven't," she sniffles, clearly grief-stricken.
Bee gives her a distracted look of concern. But she can smell that other people, including at least one she knows, have been in contact with the human girl recently, so she's not alone.
"Ah. Thanks, anyway." She looks around again, upping the scanner range.
Victor's did a good job of calming her down so she wasn't as hysterical, same with Nova, though she calmed her psychically enough to sleep, and prevented her from having nightmares.
Bee gives her a distracted smile, then moves over to where she runs into Ata.
She's a little thankful she didn't ask her what happened...
"Yes... But I'm not sure where they went after hearing about Lily, Zefie and Saku's deaths." Ata looks sad, and not just because she didn't get to know them as well as she'd like.
"Lily?" Bee pauses. She met a Lily once. "Those were friends of theirs? When was this? Did you see them before that?"
"Gen and Psych found out not too long ago, and I only saw then just after they found out. They're not alone, Dreadnought was there to comfort them."
"...Who's Dreadnought?" Puzzled Bee is puzzled.
Blinkings of surprise occur. "You're talking about Genetria, right? Shy green femme with a tiny silver sparkling and an annoying brother?"
She nods. Ata's not one to exaggerate about things like this.
"When did she get bonded??"
"I'm not sure. I haven't seen her much."
"Who's this Dreadnought guy? What's he like?" Bee frowns. "Do you know anything about his reality?"
"Hey, Bee." Psych appears, behind Bumblebee. His voice sounds more melencholy than usual, and Gen is nowhere to be seen.
She turns slowly and stares at him. "Where have you been?"
He shrugs. "Here. Another 'verse. Just... around."
"Dude." Her voice is still quiet. "Do you know how worried we were? You haven't even been to the safe house in nearly a week."
"Sorry about that. Things have been... hectic."
"Were you ever going to tell us Gen's married? Or were you just going to disappear?" She winces as the words slip out.
Psych blinks and takes a step away, surprised by what she said. "We never... We were going to tell you..."
Bee's surprised by it too, but she's so rattled right now....
"I'm sorry. That was a processor fart." She beeps and rubs her face.
He sighs and places a comforting hand on her shoulder. "It's okay. We-waitasecond. You're a robot."
"Yeah, I have been since yesterday morning."
