[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "<yawns, sounds like he hasn't slept in awhile> So... has there any news lately?"
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "...The coming of another Nothing following Stardroid... ...'Scorpio'..."
[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "...another Nothing?"
[RADIO: (B) World] General transmits, "I do have some information for the UN, if you would like to receive it, Midi."
[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "Oh, yes General sir, I'd be happy to."
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "Well... ...We know Denebola is supposidly like a Herald for it, or so its been related. Scorpio was another either minion of it or follower of it... ...Not sure. I... ...got out of there early."
[RADIO: (B) World] General transmits, "I shall send a communique, then. It was intended to be transmitted. The proper channels may not have received it yet."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "These Stardroids are defeated easilly enough. I fail to see the massive worry."
[RADIO: (B) World] General transmits, "This coming from the person who was aiming to flee to Mars earlier?"
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "I still aim to flee to Mars."
[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "I wish we knew what we were really dealing with here... Yes General, go ahead. And .. Dr. DeVry, I don't think it's the Stardroids we need to worry about."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "The massive black blot, yes..."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Its probably just some form of stellar anomaly."
[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "How do we fight something like that? I don't think it's going to be something we can actually 'battle', no matter how strong people like Rock, General, Bass, Sigma, it probably won't matter..."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Simple. We do not fight it, if it proves hostile."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Survival is dependant on -two- primary functions. Fight and -Flight-"
[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "And what if we don't have any place to run to?"
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "We know of other universes, yes?"
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "I would suggest we attack Hyper-Roll's reality, subjugate it, and survive there."
[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "And what if they're going through the same thing?"
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne speaks softly, "That doesn't matter. Its our world... We're going to fight it however we can, Midi. ...If DeVry wants to run, let him. He's better off /not/ being here, in my opinion. ...The Bonnes, for one, will be fighting untill Death."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Doubtful."
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "And, Landon... I hope you accidently end up in Kaiser Sigma's Reality"
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Man transmits, "Arr, we masters be here 'till the end!"
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "I'm sure he and Lady Viris and Magistrate Vile would /love/ to welcome you there."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Foolish sentiment."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Perhaps Iris was correct in preventing me from seeking am ethod by which to destroy the alternate universes..."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "I should not have removed her legs..."
[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "There we go again, talking about fighting it off... the Stardroids said it was our warring nature that brought our judgement down on us right? I don't think this is something that will be solved in one big battle..."
[RADIO: (B) World] General transmits, "They responded well enough to nonaggressive negotiations. Most, rather."
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "...You're probably right, little one. Thats what we Scientists are for, afterall. If Dr. Light and Dr. Wily can't think of something... no one can."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "I hate to sound french, but I suggest either running away or immediate surrender if they cannot be cowed by force of arms."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Pah, Dr. Light and Dr. Wily are trapped in their own world of robots and worlds."
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Man transmits, "Arr, I think I should be havin' over t' the pub fer some grog! That'll help th' negotians."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "If this is indeed nothing attacking us, we must discover its motivation. And if we are to believe the Zorostrian nonsense suggested by Duo during his last appearance on this world, then that would imply there is a concurrent force of creation and reality"
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Locating -that- force would be our best activity."
[RADIO: (B) World] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "...That, Landon, may be the best and only /good/ point you've ever made."
[RADIO: (B) World] Midi transmits, "But where do we begin researching this? I know Dr. Light and Dr. Wily are our best bets... but we should keep trying things ourselves... I keep getting the feeling that there is some answers up in Starhaven yet..."
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "And correct me if I am wrong, have the hostile Stardroids represented the 'chaotic' ones who surfaced during the pendant debacle?"
[RADIO: (B) World] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "If so, I believe it would lend further creedence to the ideal of there being a celestial force of order and creation to oppose their 'Nothing'"
Seoul - Southern Commercial District
Home to dozens and dozens of corporate headquarters and offices, the Commercial District is second in activity only to the Northern Commercial District. Skyscrapers and Stratoscrapers, adorned with the logos of the companies, dominate over the city, connected via transport walkways. Limos, taxis, and various other forms of transportation zip through the spaces between the massive buildings, trying to get their occupants to their destination as fast as possible. Traffic tie-ups are common, but usually everything gets back to normal soon enough.
West <W> leads to Seoul - Historical District.
North <N> leads to Seoul - Northern Commercial District.
Out <O> leads to Outskirts of Seoul.
Pisces has arrived.
The streets of Seoul aren't quite as crowded at this time of the evening, which is just fine for Midi. He doesn't like the big bustling crowds, that only means he has to keep dodging the tall people. It's tough being so small. It doesn't do much for his self-esteem either, Midi WANTS to help with this oncoming crisis, but he doesn't know if there's anything he can do.
He slows his pace as he approaches a bench that's unoccupied and hops on it. He idly sighs to himself "Aside from brainstorming solutions to uniform coding problems, I'm not much good am I? This Stardroid mystery is a bit out of my legue..."
Pisces quietly ripples into the air above the hacker reploid, wings unfurled....searching the crowds... "Are you here, beloved?"
Midi blinks in surprise as he hears the voice above him. He turns his gaze upward, and his eyes widen. He has.... no idea who this is. "Umm... Be..loved?" He asked, quite a bit wary of this stranger, for good reason. He doesn't immediatly suspect Stardroid, but after the events of the past few nights, he has to be careful all the same.
Pisces blinks as he hears the voice. "Interesting...have you seen her, little one?" Gently landing, a few people part around him to give him the space to settle in. "I'm sorry...I'm looking for my better half...she's been wandering while we try to find strength..."
Midi umms "I'm sorry, I don't even know who you're talking about. I wouldn't know if I did..." He pauses for a moment, idly regarding the figure who remains airborne, darnit his neck is cramping "Are.... you a Stardroid?" Midi can't help but feel a tad silly asking this, for all he knows, he could just be one really eccentric reploid...
Pisces smiles. "Yes...I suppose I am. Or was. Or will be. Or all of the above, really. It's a little hard to figure out right now...I was weakened so..." He shrugs. "But..yes. I am Pisces...I'm searching for one called Aquarius. Did/Have/Might you hear of her?"
"Umm..." Midi says in a thinking way "I think I might have... Aquarius... I think I might have heard Iris mention her, or someone from Repliforce..." He blinks and regards Pisces again "You know... you certainly seem a lot nicer than the other Stardroids I've seen so far..." Though a bit odd.
Pisces blinks. "How odd. I didn't think she'd go back where she found me...but perhaps she needed to..." He then looks to Midi. "Nicer? Hmm. I suppose I'm just tired of arrogance."
Midi pauses "It's just that, from the ones I've seen... I think they were called Regulus and Procyon, they just seemed... they kept saying that this was our fault somehow..." Midi faces forward, but continues to speak "Maybe we just seem naive, or blind, but ... I really can't see how."
Pisces shakes his head. "You did call us here....but as to being your fault? We forgave you for defying Judgement. This is not your crime...save that Duo's death was on your shores. And even that we cast into the tides of time."
Midi sighs "We didn't MEAN to call you here... I guess that some of us just got too curious with Starhaven. I admit, I was too. I really wanted to find out what sorts of technology was up there, but now, I dunno..." He gazes back up at Pisces "All I want now is to try and find some way to help out, but I don't think there's anything I can do..."
Pisces actually smiles? Odd. "Curiousity is the greatest benison of all...there is no shame in being blessed with it." He then ponders... "You are not ready for immortality, or the technology therin. But helping...as long as you believe, there is always something you can do..."
Midi blinks "Is there..." He wonders "I usually just end up getting in the way. I'm not a genius like Dr. Light or Dr. Wily, at least not when it comes to figuring out these mysteries of nothingness, and I'm certainly not a fighter like Rock, Zero, or the General..." He sighs "I dunno... I don't really believe that this is going to erupt into one big battle... but even so there doesn't seem to be much I /can/ do..."
Pisces shakes his head. "Genius is an advantage...but a bit of inspiration, and a bit of courage...these can do quite a bit more." He then looks down at Midi kindly. "I sincerely hope there will be no major battle...but battle or not...you have no reason not to hope. And if you are willing to share that hope with others, is that not a start?"
Midi pauses "I... guess so. I mean... everyone seems to be pretty down because of this whole situation. Some are even talking about abandoning the earth. I really don't want to do that... So... I guess I'll do whatever I can do..." He looks back up at Pisces "...do you know anything else about this... Nothing? The other Stardroids didn't seem too willing to help us out..."
Pisces shakes his head... "How do you understand life? Not by the fullness, but by the absences that provide definition...what is coming...that is the very lack of definition. How do you see the darkness of the dark?" He then looks back up to the sky. "This is a beautiful world. If it were mine...I would not wish to leave it."
Midi sighs, all he got only furthered his theory that it was a conceptual being they were up against. How do you deal with something like that? No shape, no form, only concept, yet deadly. Midi pauses "That Stardroid Regulus mentioned that his world was destroyed before he became a Stardroid... did the same thing happen to you?"
Pisces sends a radio transmission to Aquarius.
You intercept Pisces's transmission to Aquarius: Beloved...where have you gone? Have you had luck? Are you well?
Pisces nods... "My world lost our Judgement...I was saved. It took me many years to adjust. Aeons."
Pisces receives a radio transmission from Aquarius.
You intercept Aquarius's transmission to Pisces: I am fine, love, are you well? I've had contact with Procyon, Aldebaren, and Betelgeuse . . but Procyon does not seem himself.
Midi is silent for a moment. He fails to mention that he's intercepting Pisces' transmissions (not like he can help it), of course, being a Stardroid and all omnipotenty and stuff, he should be able to tell, Procyon did. "So I guess you don't remember what your world was like?" He pauses "Was earth the only planet to escape judgement?"
Pisces sends a radio transmission to Aquarius.
You intercept Pisces's transmission to Aquarius: I've been speaking to some of the natives...this one is kinder than many have been...poor curious child...I fear for Procyon...his speech...that was not like him...I miss you, beloved.
Pisces can tell the transmissions are intercepted, but allows it. Perhaps he just doesn't care? "Other planets were judged fairly. Other planets passed our tests...but Earth was the only planet to defy so well."
Pisces receives a radio transmission.
You intercept Aquarius's transmission to Pisces: As I miss you, beloved . . the native I am speaking with now has offered her hospitality to us, and would like to simply talk with us. And very unlike him, I fear he is . . greatly changed.
Midi blinks at Pisces' transmissions. He never liked being called a child, but he's grown accustomed to it, he was designed to look and behave that way afterall, Midi is what he is. Midi had always heard from everyone, according to what most of earth believes, that they were the only planet to defy the judgement. And their reward now, seems to be the Nothing. "So... what do you Stardroids plan to do? It seems like you're a bit split up in this situation..."
Pisces sends a radio transmission.
You intercept Pisces's transmission to Aquarius: Then we will talk to her...and we will come to her. I will see you soon.
Pisces receives a radio transmission.
You intercept Aquarius's transmission to Pisces: I . . please come as soon as you can, love.
Pisces nods... "We are...some of us...some of us seem quite horridly changed...power both fearsome and terrible." He refers to Midi as a child...but then, they're all children to one as old as he. "We will try to help. Or at least I hope we will."
Pisces sends a radio transmission.
You intercept Pisces's transmission to Aquarius: I promise.
Midi nods. Well, the offer of some potential support is encouraging. "Any luck trying to locate your... beloved?" Yeah he knows already, but decides to ask regardless, not like he knows Pisces knows what he's talking about. Of course, Procyon knew, and he made that quite clear.
Pisces nods. "Yes, thank you....and if you don't mind, I am about to go to her..."
Midi nods "Ok... thanks." He sighs, thinking to himself for a moment before resuming his walk back to the UN HQ "...Hope huh?"
