Training Simulator Talk, Round 2
Date of Scene: 16 November 2018
Location: Training Simulators
Synopsis: Hyperdrive, Siegebreaker, Sky Lynx, and Starlock in the training simulator, with a surprise (literally) appearance from Quickswitch. There's more talking than training going on.
Cast of Characters: Quickswitch, Sky Lynx, Hyperdrive, Siegebreaker, Starlock


Siegebreaker has posed:
The training room is currently in use, projecting a simulation that looks vaguely like a very odd warehouse. There's a curious lack of targets to dodge or shoot at, replaced by obstacles, ledges, and shelves large enough to climb and sit upon.

Siegebreaker stands at the entrance. The dreary-colored mech looks like he's surveying the simulation, but the way he's fidgeting and glancing over his shoulder suggests he's actually waiting for someone, or something, to happen.

Starlock has posed:
It wouldn't be long before Starlock showed up, looking down nervously, poking her fingers together as she approached, her head looking up some as she saw the Blue mech.

"A..Ahh Hyperdrive should be joining us soon.." She'd glance down at the floor again.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is a little apprehensive as he walks into the training area. The young mech glances around perhaps slightly nervous about the situation. A smile appears on his face when he does finally spy his two new friends. "Uh...everythin okay?"

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker flinches as Starlock draws close, but gives himself a little shake and strides forwards into the simulation. A ledge juts out of the wall at roughly shoulder height for him, and he heads straight for it, grasping on to the metal and then attempting to haul himself up.

"Hi. I need to ask you two - things. What I asked you earlier, Hyperdrive." He half-climbs, half-slithers onto the ledge and sits up. "If I attacked you, in the medbay. She was there. You were there. So - tell me."

He doesn't look at either of them as he looks for something else he can climb onto.

Starlock has posed:
"Uhh mean... When you started hitting the force field?" She asked, watching him climb, she was also keeping a fair distance away from him, sitting on an ear create. Her mask still in place, keeping herself looking away.

Quickswitch has posed:
The great hulk of the Autobot, Quickswitch, makes its way down the corridor towards the training simulator. He's quiet, practiced so, as he nears the entrance. The head-fins of the freakish monster prick upwards in curiousity as he overhears something. A conversation? Here? His mouth tightens into a frown. Prepostrous!

Siegebreaker has posed:
"What happened in the medbay. Just that. What happened there. Did I attack him." Siegebreaker's hands clench and unclench several times before he picks out the next outcropping to climb.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive shrugs, "I don't know if I'd consider it an attack. At least not ta me. I put myself inta the position ta keep you and others safe." He goes climbing after Siegebreaker and seems to have no problem deftly making his own way up the wall. But he's also small and rather acrobatic.

Starlock has posed:
"I mean, after he put the force field on the door, you kinda went into this.. I dunno trance? Like state and started hitting it, but I really wouldn't call it an /attack/ ether." She'd add, glancing up then back down.

"Hyperdrive made it out to sound like one to cover for us but.. Ehhh.. Didn't feel right, I outed myself, and Ratchet scolded me accordingly.." her optics dimmed slightly.

"I uh.. actually shouldn't be near you.."

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker pauses and looks back at the two. His engine gives a little growl, and when he speaks, he sounds almost frustrated. "I'm asking if - if I attacked him. Him. Not his forcefield. Him. Did I attack him."

He looks back to the series of ledges, and continues climbing.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive frowns, "I don't remember, you looked like you were gonna go after Starlock and I shocked you. I did it to protect you and Starlock and then I made it sound like I started a fight and bullied you and stuff."

Quickswitch has posed:
Without context, the sixchanger can only wildly guess as to what the others are talking about. As he listens, though, his face falls. There was an attack in the medbay by a restrained individual. Something of an attack. Again, the displeased expression. /Someone/ who may have been in distress or some other obvious disturbance. His face softens a little. Something he himself can relate to... A sudden surge of emotion floods him. Come now. It was not a place for eavesdropping! The Autobot straightened and stood in the doorway, blasters out and resolute. He opens fire on them all. "A distracted Autobot is a dead Autobot!" Quickswitch snarls, "An attack can happen anywhere! Cadets, what do you have to say for yourselves?! SPEAK!"

Starlock has posed:
Starlock tapped her finger on the create in thought, the silent sound of her working to remember what happen. "Well he was in the force field, I'd gone to try and calm you down by touching your shoulder, poor choice of actions, clearly and... By all accords, Yeah that is what HD did.. So you didn't' /actually/ attack anyone." She'd frown.

She then let out a high pitched squeaky yelp of surprise at the surprise Quickswitch! Actually falling off her crate onto her back, with a loud thud and crash... Not the most graceful of ways to dodge a laser but Hey it worked!

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is very quick to respond and even before he's dropping to a new, safer position. His forcefield protects him from the initial barrage. The mech immediately drops and tries to make himself less noticeable to the attacking party. "Give up now and we will accept your peaceful surrender!"

Siegebreaker has posed:
"There was footage of me attacking him." Siegebreaker still sounds frustrated, and he tries to channel it elsewhere by taking a running leap and making a wild grab for a pole jutting out from the wall. His hands close around it and he hangs there in midair, supported by his arms alone. "It was shown to me."

He's about to swing to the next ledge when Quickswitch makes his dynamic entry. There's nothing he really can do to dodge while hanging there, and some of the photon blasts leave scorch marks across his chest. He whips his head around, taking in the newcomer - although he can't salute, his tone has shed every last trace of frustration and is now respectful. "We're practicing, sir!"

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx had...well, had intended to do a thing. Probably a great thing. But the little lightbulb outside indicating the simulator was in use drew curiosity and interest, and as such, while things are going on he steps in to simply watch, for now at least. Settling in behind the observation window, not really making a move to quite announce his own massive presence just yet.

Quickswitch has posed:
There's the sound of a ratcheting cog, the familiar sound of transformation, but... strange... sped up, oddly distorted. Quickswitch takes on a different form, that of a beast, and pads into the training room further. With fiercely glinting optics, he eyes each of them. To Starlock: "Disgraceful. Were it not for chance, you would be dead by now." To Siegebreaker, the show of respect penetrates Quickswitch's disgust, "Huh. Looks like you were chatting, to me," he shows no sign of it, and to Hyperdrive, the Sixchanger chuckles, and chuckles, and erupts in beastly laughter. The beast turns for the doorway. Looking back over his shoulder, "Always be on your guard." he tells them.

Starlock has posed:
Starlock knitted her brows in thought. "The Medbay has cameras?" She asked simply, and confusedly as she kept behind the crate for cover... No.. That couldn't be right, Siege never GOT the chance to hurt anyone cause of Hyperdrive tasering him, so there shouldn't of been...

"Yes, Practicing Sir! Also Siege, status report, how bad of a hit was that? Will you need repairs?" She'd draw out her own pistols, She also frowned hearing the scolding, as well the sound of transforming, She'd peek over, waiting to see what the new comer would do next, and it was actually okay too shoot....

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive grins at Starlock, "It probably stings but it should be okay. We're in the training sim...there are protections unless you accidently override them. WHich I don't think he did." He debates shooting at QUickswitch, "The guy is right...we should be prepared. If we didn't want to be disturbed we should have put a notice on the door."

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker still can't salute, so he simply inclines his head. "We were also chatting, sir!"

Now that he's not being shot at, he swings his legs out, and drops onto the next ledge. It appears that he's trying to climb his way to the top of the vertical obstacle course. Once he's settled on that ledge, he sits cross-legged and peers down at everyone. "So - how would there be footage of me attacking Hyperdrive if I never attacked him at all? Why would there be footage of it?"

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx does -as Hyperdrive mentions it- check the safety locks on the simulator and...yes, yes, they do seem to be in order. That much done, he looks back at the conversation and simulator taking place, a bit more curious, perhaps, than concerned regarding the 'who attacked who'.

Quickswitch has posed:
Quickswitch speaks, a raspy growl. He snaps, "I haven't dismissed you!!" the sound, edged with rage. A short pause, "Next time, I won't be so gentle." Quickswitch the beast pads out the door. Quickswitch, the soldier, will make something of these recruits... Spotting Sky Lynx, the beast inclines his head as he goes.

Starlock has posed:
Starlock flinched, but then let out a sigh of frustration as she saw him going, it was true, they should of.. She would then speak, as she had now grown worried. "I'm... not sure, cause you went and grabbed my wrist, and that is when Hyperdrive got you, you /never/ got the chance to attack anyone, so I.. Don't actually know how there is footage?" She'd peek from her spot, looking clearly lost, and trying to figure out just HOW or WHY that was there or made..

"Think someone doctored it up to make it believable? And no offense HD but I don't think you thought that plan through THAT well." She'd glance over with an almost flat look from what her optics showed.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive says, "That may have been my fault. . Some of the footage might have been worked on especially if it shows me attackin oyu. but other than that I'm not sure sure. Cause I did my best ta make it look like I attacked you."

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive also makes a face at QUIckswitch as he decides to leave rather than pushing things. THough it's mostly good natured.

Quickswitch has posed:
Quickswitch leaves, but once out in the hall, reverts back to robot mode, hunched back against the wall, optics glowing huge with a wracked expression as his systems surged. Untethered unease and sickness fills him. Whatever they were talking about, he needed to get away from it, and quickly. He walks away down the hall, blasters in hand.

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker leaps to his feet and salutes briskly as Quickswitch leaves, and does not relax until he's sure the scary shooty mech is out of view. Instead of sitting down again, he resumes climbing. "I don't know. I think - it was evidence that I need... fixing. I don't want to be a liability. I remember what I felt, but not what happened -"

He stops mid-sentence, like he's just realized something.

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx just...sort of shakes his head a bit after Quickswitch departs and looks back at Siegebreaker as...is that a revelation coming? Possibly. Who knows?! But it's caught the shuttle's interests as he settles back and pulls out his datapad, flicking through a few of the screens in search of something.

Starlock has posed:
Starlock tilted her head. "Still that.. Doesn't explain /who/ doctored it, cause that is not okay... Like it wasn't okay for HD to take all the blame when I should of too, since.... I also messed up.. and I am sorry for that." She'd frown, looking down, then up at Siege, why did he stop talking?

"Something wrong, Siege?"

Siegebreaker has posed:
"Just... just a thought." Siegebreaker sounds like he's just figured something out, though he doesn't explain. He just climbs, right up until he reaches the highest ledge. Gazing down at them from his perch, he waves and actually smiles.

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx hmms...and after a moment of debate, and looking around, finally just activates the intercomm system and clears his vocal emitters. "I...should apologize, but curiosity compels me to ask what that thought was. Perhaps better understanding it could assist in clarifying a great number of things, as well as...well, never mind that. All the same, a bit of elaboration might be a healthy thing."

Starlock has posed:
Starlock frowned, standing up, looking to him.. her Mask finely shift back into hiding and she smiles up at him weakly, waving back. flinching form the sudden surprise of Sky Lynx's voice, blinking up at the glass above.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive raises his handsI was happy to take theblame fer you. I didn't want you guys gettin in trouble. There's so much other stress fer yas to deal with"

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker jumps as Sky Lynx's voice echoes through the room. Thankfully, he only jumps a bit. If he'd jumped a lot he'd fall off his ledge.

"A - a theory. If I remember feelings of certain things - which is why I'm so... me." He points at Starlock. "In the medbay - she tied me up, and when she came close? Fear. I don't know why. No reason to. The attack out there, after I fell?" He pauses, looking down. "I remembered feeling like I was going to die again. Buried and forgotten."

Sky Lynx has posed:
"Interesting... A better possibility than what I had been thinking, at any rate. Though, do not get me wrong, that is hardly a comforting thing to know and understand."

Lynx hmms... "Not long ago, we had a psychoserum outbreak which was causing others to momentarily lapse in their better judgement and turn hostile, often times forgetting the instance occurred. I was worried we were seeing a weaponized variant of that from the Decepticons...but...that does not seem to be the case. All the same, might I strongly recommend scheduling a visit with Rung? He is quite skilled at what he does."

Starlock has posed:
Starlock visibly frowned now, looking up at him. "H-Hey I'd never let you end up like that again." She spoke up hesitatingly, it was true, why she was ready to speed out to find him in the chasm, there was a reason she kept finding him after all, no one deserved to be alone, but she kept quiet, listing.

"I'm sorry I made you feel that way."

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker shakes his head. For once, he's at ease, high up near the ceiling of the simulation. He even looks pleased with himself. "It's just that incident - the medbay incident - that's fuzzy. Recent things, I can remember. Even the shuttle near... Polyhex. It was Polyhex, and the Mitteous Plateau. Yes. I remember that. I remember what he did, I remember what I did."

Sky Lynx has posed:
"Shuttle... Blast Off, then? That's who left you in the bottom of that chasm? Hmm... I'll be sure to have a word or three with him on the matter." Lynx considers that a bit before he looks back at the simulator's control panels and shrugs a bit. "I still recommend it. Once is once too often, and if it can be found out and exploited by the Decepticons, having it addressed is adviseable. However, I will leave that up to you."

Starlock has posed:
"He? He who? the one that attacked you?" Shuttle..? Waaait... Uh oh, she was getting an idea now of who had attacked him and she was growing rather increasingly angry at the thought, only to have Lynx vocalize it, did it feel valid.

"So.. what.. does that mean?" She'd ask, tiling her head. She smiled, hearing why Lynx said, it.. was nice to know everyone here was willing to help support the lost bot.

Siegebreaker has posed:
"Yes!" Siegebreaker nods emphatically. "That's who he said he is. Do you know him? He shot me. I didn't have anything to shoot back with I jumped on him and -" He motions violently in the air with his hands, like he's making gouges in something with his fingertips.

"I don't know what it means," he continues, still making the fingertip-stabbing motions. "But it's something, right? Maybe - if I know what's going on, I can figure out how to work around it with what I have. I didn't have a gun when he shot me. I improvised. Threw my possessions at him."

Siegebreaker frowns, hands going still.

"I need a new screwdriver."

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive grins a little at Siegebreaker. "You JUMPED on him? Yer so lucky he didn't do an orbital assault on ya fer scuffin him. I'm glad yer better now. He's already killed one person I knew. I don't want him killin another."

Sky Lynx has posed:
"I...knew Blast Off, yes. A rather skilled explorer and scout, once upon a time, though he's sided with the group I can't quite agree with. At times, I feel as though I break through to him and he regrets that choice, but he just...sticks to it. More and more, I think I've lost a fellow exploration afficionado."

He messes about with the controls and drops the 'altitude' of Siegebreaker's perch, adding another stretch of climbable surface to get back up to the top again. "And, yes, I've done high-orbital retrieval missions before, but it is quite the task. Finding a small thing in a large expanse is a very, very precise science."

Starlock has posed:
"Don't you have your integrated flamethrowers?" She'd speak up to him, as if asking why he didn't use those, but let it drop, now listing, the frown still there.

Siegebreaker has posed:
"Yeah. I jumped on him." Apparently being elevated dozens of feet above everyone else makes Siegebreaker relax. "He hit me into rocks. I didn't even - whoa!"

He flails his arms as he suddenly drops several feet, grabbing on to the edge of his perch and holding on tight. "I've never tried," Siegebreaker calls down to Starlock, still clinging to the metal outcropping for dear life. He makes no move to climb up. "I don't think I have, at least. I might have - before. But I haven't tried recently."

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx says, "Well, why not try it out now? This is the training simulator and you never know what you can do until you do it. Safest place to learn is here." He puts a flying image of Blast Off circling at the top of the elevated outcropping. "Just need to climb a bit.""

Starlock has posed:
"He's got a point.. Might be best for you to learn? case your attacked again" She'd add, flinching as she saw the image of last off above, her pistols where still drawn after all, and she was clenching them.

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker climbs to his feet smoothly and salutes Sky Lynx. "As you command."

And he's off, climbing his way up to where the image of Blast Off is. Right as he reaches the uppermost ledge, he stops, looking down to Starlock. "It's a little odd - that you know more about my own body than I do. Isn't it? Wouldn't you feel odd - fearful - if someone knew you better than you knew yourself?"

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx looks up at where Siegebreaker's climbing. "Is that so? Well, we should work on remedying that. At least insofar as your capabilities and strengths, though...understanding your limitations and weakneses is also quite critical." He doesn't really make the holo-Blast Off attack, more...sit stationary for Siege to just get some practice in.

Siegebreaker has posed:
"There was never an opportunity." Siegebreaker's climb ends with him crouched on the edge of the highest outcropping. "I'm not fit for active duty right now."

He leaps towards the image of Blast Off and tries to nail a superhero landing on the simulated shuttle's back.

Starlock has posed:
Starlock looked nervous but still spoke. "Well.. yeah, but I am also a medic, that is what we're supposed to do, know how someone works where we can put them back together again, at least, a GOOD medic should..." She'd sigh. "Again i'm sorry I.. should of been more aware of that fear.."

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx erfs, and quickly adjust the hologram to be...well, properly physical since Siege seems to be intent on flying without wings. That's...easily done, though, and he leaves the settings as they are. "Hah... I'd be curious to know what a medic can find out about me while doing their work..." He flicks his tail slightly.

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker doesn't answer Starlock. He's focused wholly upon the hologram shuttle as he plunges his hands downwards. Metal talons dig deep into the hologram's plating, and he clenches his hands around whatever internal components the program has simulated... and then he straightens up from his crouch, trying to rip those components out.

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx hrms, watching the readout on the display for the drone's intake of punishment. "Right, well...you can certainly hit hard, but what about those flamethrowers? That, ultimately, is what we're hoping to test out and see if their functionality is sound, yes?"

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker looks to where Sky Lynx is oberserving and gives a short nod, then looks back to the hologram shuttle. For a moment, nothing happens; all he does is frown like he's trying to remember something very important or solve a riddle.

Starlock has posed:
Starlock let out a whistle seeing that. She'd watch though, trying to think.. Maybe that heating up was part of it? But he only got that hot when he was freaking out. "They should be working, they are completely repaired.." she'd mumble.

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx hrms... "When you access your weapon system subroutines, does it show up as an option? Do you have a corresponding targeting reticle in your combat HUD to help direct the fire and account for the spread of the flame? I know when I use mine, it is almost a natural thing. Think of it and it simply does, but...I am quite certain that is just honed skill over a long time of accessing it through the standard means."

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker releases his hold of the holographic shuttle bits, shuffling around - still on Fake Blast Off's back - to face Sky Lynx. "Yes. Yes. It's, um... let me try..." He tilts his head to one side, brow-ridges furrowed like he's concentrating hard. "Okay. I think this might work."

He kneels down again and places his hands on the simulated shuttle. A burst of bright orange flames erupt from the vents in his forearms, lasting only a brief moment before flickering out. Not powerful enough to leave any lasting damage, but yay! Fire!

Wincing, Siegebreaker straightens, shaking his wrists out. "That?"

Starlock has posed:
"Good Start!" she'd call with a smile, trying to think why it didn't stay up. "Think you heating up like you do when your panicked has anything to do with keeping it lit?" She'd ask."you went over 150% that one time and i... panicked, cause I thought your energon would ignite."

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx makes a few quick notes of her own before looking back up at Siegebreaker. "Might just need a few good runs to clear out whatever is clogging them up! Some systems, if not used frequently, will have trouble starting up again. Absolutely normal!"

Siegebreaker has posed:
"They're - working fine. Just a ...power issue." Siegebreaker looks down nervously to Starlock. "Please don't make me panic. I am actually - I feel fine up here. I'm fine."

Starlock has posed:
"Eheh.. Alright, sorry about that, i was.. uh hoping there was something else to it then that... Actually, since you can get that hot." She'd smile weakly and apologetically.

"Alright, I'm sorry."

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx chuckles softly, but little else is said as he leaves Siege to just practice a bit, going back to looking at his own notes on things. "Have you run a quick diagnostic on your systems to make sure they don't need fuel?"

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker manages to create a few more feeble gouts of flames that do nothing except ruin the paint on his hand before giving up with a huff. "No. I refuel regularly. It'd just take a lot of power to make them work, more than I'd like to spend - unless I have to."

Starlock has posed:
Starlock blinked. "Some sort of Uhhh... Safety lock then?" She'd call. "Hypothetically that is... Nothing actual."

Sky Lynx has posed:
"Indeed, you should be able to alter and tune the amount of power going to those systems to suit your needs and the situation... hrm. If you can't, that's concerning." He contemplates that a moment or two before shrugging it off. "Well! Right then...something to explore further, yes?"

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker smiles, shifting his weight from one foot to the other. "From everything I've gathered, I'm concerning. Doesn't matter if they don't work, though. I'm not supposed to fight. Or have weapons. They ...might take these away."

He looks around and frowns. "Can you let me down, please? I don't want to jump."

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx nods. "Of course."

The simulation is powered down and that'll be that. Through holo-magic, no falling should happen, but...well, who knows?! He steps back from the controls and takes stock of things a bit. "So...not supposed to fight? Or have weapons? What brought that about?"

Starlock has posed:
"Ah.. that came from..Was it Hound Prowl or Jazz? one those three, after the incident where.." she'd frown. "...I'm also not supposed to be talking to Siege, or being near him, by Ratchets orders, given what happen...Unless it's life or death." She'd sigh.

She'd start scratching at her arm panel, looking down, not wanting to state it, but she wanted badly to talk and be around Siege, she.. He was her friend.

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker finds himself standing on the floor. He stumbles, disoriented, before righting himself. "Thanks. Um..."

Now that he's closer to the ground and others, he seems more like his usual fidgety self. "I might be a danger. To other Autobots. I don't want to hurt them."

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx hmms. "Somehow I doubt you are, but...again, I recommend talking to Rung. There might be a very simple way to fix that particular issue." He nods curtly. "I might also be able to find some...non-combative missions to ease yourself back into."

Starlock has posed:
"A..ah no it's.. He knows your afraid of me." she'd frown, looking down still. "I think he'.s worried i'll screw up and make it worse." She'd rub the back of her neck. "I honestly don't blame him eheh I seem to keep messing up." She'd laugh weakly, she looked up to where Lynx spoke.

"Yeah, that would be good, stead getting thrown into battle like we've kinda been having to."

Siegebreaker has posed:
"It's funny - I was made for combat. And now..." Siegebreaker chuckles weakly. "I feel useless. Like I'm failing in what I'm suppose to do. A soldier who can't fight, with no weapons, who -" He stops himself, shaking his head, and peers up to where Sky Lynx is. "... /Can/ you assign missions?"

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx looks towards Starlock. "Afraid of you? What...would he have to be afraid of?" He cants his head slightly before looking back to Siegebreaker. "Not useless. Adaptability is an admirable trait. There are those who do one thing well, and fail to expand their horizons beyond that meaning they get stuck in what they assume is their identity. And, can I? Of course I can! I am Lieutenant Colonel, after all, and I should like to think I've a fair bit of my own rank to throw around. There are not many who I find myself report to."

Starlock has posed:
"Err.. I dunno?" She'd look to Siege, asking, why was he scared of her? Well he did say why.. sort of, unless that was a general question from before?

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker begins slowly. "Because... she is - intense. Imagine being an object - a specimen - taken by somebody you don't know. The first person - living person - you'd seen since you could remember. And then imagine being stared at. Poked and prodded. Studied. Touched. Tied down, examined, you pull away, she puts her hand on you, and you want to run but you /can't move/ and you're scared and it doesn't matter to her because you're a project, something to gawk at, something to work on, something to take apart and put back together -"

He stops, embarassed, a shudder running through his frame. "Sorry, sir. I didn't mean..."

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx gives Siege breaker a look as he listens to everything. "Intense...yes, I can see that." He then looks towards Starlock before all focus returns to Siegebreaker proper. "And...yes, a specimen. Poked, prodded...a project. Not very comforting, I know." He then shakes his head. "And no reason to apologize. This is us being candid in an effort to get to the bottom of something. What comes shall come. Besides, I can take it fairly well as it does take a considerable effort to get me rattled off my feet."

Lynx considers things for a bit. "Rung remains my primary recommendation. You're not in my particular division, so I cannot make it an order, but if you would like I could set the recommendation to your Divisional leader to make it happen. It might sound like it is a little thing that will not do much, but I assure you, Rung has a fantastic way of working through the cloud of one's past to help offer a clear future."

Starlock has posed:
Starlock frowned, glancing away, rubbing her arm. "No.. it's okay you needed to say it.. I'm.. again sorry I made you felt that way, I was just.. trying to help and I see it went wrong." She'd keep quite a few moments more. "I...I'll try to do better."

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker looks thoughtful, though from his somewhat distant look, he's not thinking about the topic at hand. "Let me see if I can fix it - myself - first. Pharma said I need to be okay with being poked and prodded. If I can't, then I'll see ...whoever it is you recommended. I don't like - I don't want to be more of a problem than I've already created. So far I've figured out how to be in the same room as Starlock without feeling too trapped."

Sky Lynx has posed:
Sky Lynx nods slowly. "Very well. You know you... If you do require anything, however, please...do not hesitate to let me know and I will see what I can accomplish in that regard." He straightens up. "Right! I've...a few things to take care of administratively, so I shall take my leave. You two be well." And, with that, he is moving towards the doorway out.

Starlock has posed:
Starlock rubbed her arm and grunted. "...T-thats good I.." She'd look down at the floor looking confussed, lost even, watching Sky lynx before finely letting it out. "I just..want to be your friend." She'd sigh.

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker gives Sky Lynx as respectful a salute as he'd given Quickswitch earlier, though his gaze is resting firmly on Starlock.

"Why?"

Starlock has posed:
"....Your uh.. Sort of.." she'd look a bit embarrassed herself as she looked away. "Really the first person I've... had any interaction with outside of work, you and Hyperdrive."

Siegebreaker has posed:
"So it was like - me, when you brought me here, when we were in the rec room refueling." Siegebreaker smiles. He's standing practically halfway across the room from her, but doesn't seem to mind carrying out a long-distance conversation. "We both didn't know what to do with the new experience - and while I ran and hid, you, you... held on tighter."

Starlock has posed:
"Mmm..Yeah I'm,.. willing to admit I'm rather socially inept, so when I met someone similar it... Didn't seem as lonely anymore." She'd huff, and look over to him a crossed the room. "I just didn't want to say anything cause I was scared it would put to much more on you then what you needed."

Siegebreaker has posed:
Siegebreaker looks thoughtful, then nods. "We can be friends, I think - as long as you give me space." He smiles. "I won't abandon you. It would be cruel of me if I did. But I get jittery if you're too close."

He takes a few tentative steps towards the training room's exit. "Do you mind...?"

Starlock has posed:
"I can do that." She'd smile weakly, rubbing at her forearm, but smiling up at him. "Not at all.. I'm.. glad we finely got to talk... Uhh, can I get your radio frequency later?"

Siegebreaker has posed:
"O-okay." Siegebreaker hesitates. "Later. I need to find a new screwdriver. And practice some - things."

He shuffles for the door, carefully keeping as much distance between himself as Starlock as he can on his way out.
