Iri

"Um..." Iri blushed a little again. "I might have just cleaned up the mess and not told my boss about it yet."

 

((Random question, but is he still going to call her screenface after she's mostly human and has a real face? I'm assuming he will.))

((He will most certainly at least reference it))

 

Rizzo blinked then said "Well. Sorry you had to do that. The rest of the explosion mess plus my temper tantrum mess. That must have been annoying at the very least."

"You had a real doosie yesterday didn't you?" Dave said. Rizzo told him "That wasn't obvious yesterday? Just eat your sandwich man."

"I AM eating my sandwich." Dave countered to which Rizzo said "Let me reprise that. Eat your sandwich and mind your own business." Dave shrugged and disappeared into a different room. Rizzo watched that direction for a few seconds then whispered to Iri "He and Steve have been hanging out a lot and I think Steve's starting to rub off on him."

"I heard that!" Called Dave's voice from the other room.

"I don't care!" Rizzo called back after which he turned back to Iri and said "So. I'll see you at work. Unless you wanted to walk or float in your case there with me. I haven't exactly had breakfast yet even though I definitely should have by now. I think I'll just make myself a sandwhich like Dave cuz that won't take long. You're welcome to come in if you want or wait out there or go to work and meet me there. Any one of those ways is fine by me. Though you could also fly there by jetpack and I would totally not judge you for that cuz jetpacks are awesome."

 

 

((Did I just accidently pull the guy saying too much stuff thing? (gags comedicly) Really Rizzo is just still feeling kind of awkward after what he did. He didn't expect Iri to forgive him so quickly (or quickly from his point of view). He was worried he had forever dented their relationship and is very shocked that he didn't at least lose his job))

Iri

Iri shrugged. She didn't see any real reason why she would need to come in and watch her eat. She still hadn't really gotten the idea of just hanging out with friends for the sake of hanging out with friends. Instead, she said, "I guess I'll see you soon then!" and took to the sky.

"See ya Iri!" Rizzo called after her. Some time later he showed up at work and as he started looking for his next project he said "I'm going to be honest with you Iri. I didn't think I would be able to come back here. Not only did I think the boss would definitely see the mess but you also looked mad enough to melt my face when you saw that statue."

"To be perfectly honest, I was pretty close to melting your face," said Iri, who had gathered some smaller objects to make a smaller sculpture to sell. She was considering what to make. Perhaps a bird, and those two little watch faces could be its eyes. Maybe if she did it right, they'd actually turn? She was fairly absorbed in her work.

"Well. Thanks for not doing that." Rizzo said right before his eyes fell on a stabler remover that he picked up with a chuckle. He put it between his fingers and puppeted it like it was some weird fanged creature. "Huh. I wonder why this was thrown away. It works perfectly fine." He said once he had paused his being weird.

 

((By stapler remover I mean this kind

and now you know why Rizzo is playing with it))

 

Shortly after that Rizzo found a broken jack in the box that had no puppet and was pretty much just the metal box and spring. "Wow. This must have come in from some collector of really old stuff." Rizzo mumbled. He seemed to think about something for a while then said out loud "Hey Iri. If I told you someone I know would buy something completely ridiculous could I make something completely ridiculous?"

Iri

Iri tilted her head, looking at the objectss Rizzo was holding and trying to figure out what on earth he would do with them. Finally she said, "Sure, why not?" Secretly, though, part of her just wanted to see what he would make.

"AWESOME!" Rizzo said. However before he actually started working on it his communicator let him know he had a call. Rizzo answered. "Hello?..............WHAT?.....Do you know who it is?..............No they're not a friend of mine. ........weird how?.......That's not helpful. .........................Just never mind. Is Dave ok?.......Good..............did they take anything?..........That's also good...........That's...not as good but if they didn't take anything that's what's important." Rizzo put his communicator away then told Iri in a way more matter of fact tone than he should have for such a situation "Steve says a weird android just broke into my house. They didn't take anything but they kicked down the door and shoved all my furniture around. They better not have broken my toilet or I'm going to be SO mad."

Iri gasped as realization struck her. "They were looking for the knife!" she said. "Rizzo, are you really, really sure they didn't find it? Was it somewhere they wouldn't see even if they moved all the furniture around?"

Rizzo chuckled and said "If Steve says they didn't get away with anything then they didn't get away with anything. The guy's eyesight is amazing. And yes. It takes more than moving my furniture to find my secret hiding place."

Iri sighed with relief and got started on her little bird.

 

((I wonder... is there any chance that even when she's mostly human she can still shoot flames out of her hand? Because that's honestly my favorite part of her.))

Rizzo dug through the garbage looking for more parts for his contraption. After several hours Rizzo called "Hey Iri want to see what I've got so far?"

 

 

 

((For this I'm simply going to say your character your rules. Exactly how human she becomes in the end is yours to control. Even though I have kind of set a boundary of a person can't stray 100% away from their race I don't see any reason to be much more strict then that))

 

((Had to edit to fix some spelling because the spellcheck glitched. Since I had to edit it anyway I figured I would add that I'm wondering about how long it will take to be at a good point to meet Steve. I'm asking because if that point is going to be a while I might bring Twitchy in before we meet Steve instead of after. (Maybe Twitchy could even spark Iri's being a little worried about her change because of how messed up he is) That or we're going to need to think of more things to do in the meantime.))

 

((Also I don't have to lead the story all the time. You can have something happen on Iri's side of things that the two of them have to deal with too. I just want you to know that. I may have disagreed with the all AI's becoming human idea but that doesn't mean I'll disagree with all ideas))

Iri

Iri glanced up from her own project. She could use a break. She was having a hard time fitting the mechanism into the shape of the bird. Oh, well. Maybe the clock-eyes wouldn't turn after all.

She glided eagerly over towards Rizzo to see what he was up to.

 

((We can meet Steve whenever. Maybe Iri insists on going to Rizzo's house to see if everything is okay, and that's when they see him? I like the idea of Twitchy sparking Iri's worry. And I'm sorry if I haven't been doing a lot to move the story along. I haven't really thought of much I wanted to do.))

Rizzo held up his box and explained "So I thought the stapler remover kind of looked like a pair of fangs and I thought maybe I could do something kind of fun with that." He turned the handle and the iconic jack in the box music played before the lid popped open and the spring with the stapler remover taped to it popped up. Rizzo said "It's an asp in the box! Or...it will be. I have to find some cloth or something that looks scaly to make it a proper snake and I'm hopeing I can rig the lid so it opens in reaction to a motion sensor which I'm hopeing to find somewhere out here. It shouldn't be too h.ard. Lots of things have those sensors. Anyway the point is that when someone walks by it POP and a snake appears! I was thinking it would be a good Halloween decoration or a prank item or something someone might buy for someone as a gag gift. You know, stuff like that."

 

 

 

((I like the idea of going to meet Steve because of what happened. That or at some point Rizzo asks Iri if she wants to come watch a movie with him and they end up with Steve butting in.))

 

((By the way I'm not upset really about being the one to bring up plot points most of the time. I just wanted to make sure you knew you could too))

Iri

Iri grinned. "I love the idea of the motion sensor! There's a motion-activated paper towel dispenser in the junkyard right now... but I'm guessing that would have too short a range. I'm also not sure why it was thrown out, and it could be that the motion sensor was the faulty part. Still, it could be worth a look."

 

((Ooh, I like that one better. Especially if Steve misconstrues it and thinks they're in love, and the awkwardness that will follow. XD Only if you want to go there of course, but I think it would be hilarious.))

"Thanks. I will definitely check it out. It can't hurt to try." Rizzo said. The human found the towel dispenser Iri pointed him to and started working to take the sensor out of it without damaging it. When he succeeded in doing that he started tinkering with the sensor itself which was broken but not beyond repair. He managed to fix it fully but was still working to see if he could somehow increase its range by the time the work day was nearing its end. ((I time jumped because I didn't feel like showing the whole work day. I just assumed you probably didn't want to ether)) 

"I might have to continue this project tomorrow." Rizzo said. "I need to get snake skin looking cloth for it anyway." He brushed some dust off of his hands then paused as if thinking before turning to Iri and asking "Hey Iri. Weird question. Have you ever watched a movie? Or...do you like/want to watch a movie?"

 

 

 

 

 

 

((Even though I'm not a huge romance fan I'm not at all above having Steve ship them for the sake of hilarity. I'll do that. XD Rizzo's reaction to Steve's doing this will be very relatable for me.))

Iri looked at him. "A movie? No, I never have. I mean, what's the point of just staring at a screen for hours? There are so many more productive things to do."

Rizzo replied "Because things happen on that screen. And usually we watch them when we don't have anything else to do anyway. It's movie night and I was wondering if you wanted to join the fun. It's more exiting than it looks. In fact movies are actully a form of art."

Iri pondered for a moment. "Well, I don't really have anything else to do tonight, so I guess I might as well."

 

((Extra awkwardness if it turns out to be a really icky smushy romance film, but Iri would never go to a movie again if it was that XD))

"Ok. Awesome. See you at my place when we're done here." Said Rizzo.

 

 

 

((That might be going a little too far for humor. As in I don't think ether of them would want to watch that. Rizzo would worry that Iri would think he was trying to flirt with her))

 

((I just thought of this. Earlier when they were talking about hobbys and Rizzo said he sometimes watches movies with Steve he meant Steve is usually the one who plays the movies. Do you think it would be funnier for Rizzo to just out of the blue introduce Iri to Steve or do you think it would be funnier for Rizzo to think Steve is currently doing something and so they start watching the movie on Rizzo's TV (he does have one. Steve is just more fun because he can project it big on a wall) and then have Steve bug them because it turns out whatever he was suppose to be doing (probably a check up with a mechanic or something because Steve is really old) then was canceled. I'm kind of leaning towards option two but I can do ether so which one would you rather?))

Iri continued working on her project, though she was still getting a little frustrated, until closing time, then headed over to Rizzo's house.

 

((You're right, and Rizzo probably doesn't even own any romance movies. I was expecting them to go to the movie theater, but this works too.))

((I think option two would be wayyyy funnier. I'm picturing him just popping up at the window and going, "What'cha doing?" and they both jump right out of their skins.))

When Rizzo opened the door he invited Iri inside then asked her "I know you've never seen a movie before but is there something you think you'd be most likely to like. I've got some fantasy, some sci-fi, ((I wonder how crazy sci-fi would get by their time)) some history. I've even got a few nature documentaries that Steve decided to drop on my doorstep when he didn't realize he was buying physical copys instead of the on the internet stuff he usually gets."

From another room Dave called "I made popcorn! ....Oh. Was that the door? Should I make more?" Rizzo called back "No. It's Iri. She's a robot. I don't think she can eat popcorn." then he turned to Iri and half jokingly said "Well. Not unless you grow a mouth at some point that is. Eh screenface?" 

 

 

 

((I actually thought about a movie theater. It was one of my first ideas when thinking about how they would go about doing this but then I thought about the fact that Steve is a space ship. It would probably have to be a drive in movie theater or something and that would be weird because Rizzo doesn't have a car. I guess I could have done something about that by having Dave own a car but oh well.))

Iri glanced around. "I mean, I might get one. It would be interesting to taste food, instead of merely sensing the particles in the air, which is most analagous to a human's sense of smell. But I enjoy the popcorn scent that I do recieve, so in a way you're already sharing the popcorn with me, as much as is possible." Ignoring Dave, who was giving her some odd looks, she said, "I know the basics of what those genres are, but I don't know what I'll enjoy." She picked a superhero movie off the stack. "This looks interesting, I guess."

Iri shrugged. "Sure, why not?" She didn't really have the ability to sit down, so instead she hovered in the center of the room.

As Rizzo put the movie in Dave brought in the popcorn. Both humans sat down and took turns taking handfulls of popcorn. However not long after the first lines of dialog something very large and creaky came stomping over to the closest window. Dave and Rizzo were very into the movie already and didn't notice until the large AI outside stuck a camera on the end of a multi jointed arm through the window and right in between the two humans. Dave saw the camera first and jumped to his feet still not as use to Steve as Rizzo was. "WHAT IS THAT?!!" He yelled. Truth be told Rizzo jumped too just out of suprize but not nearly as badly as Dave had. Rizzo cussed under his breath then said "Gosh darnet Steve! Must you sneak up on people like that?"

When Steve replied his voice came from outside even though his camera was indoors which meant that his speaker was not on his camera. "Oh. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to activate your fight or flight mod/instinct/whatever you prefer to call it."

Steve replied "Yes I am Steve. Hello. Say....I've seen you before. You're the one Rizzo has been hanging out with aren't you? Did you know Rizzo hasn't been arrested since you two started that?" Steve turned his camera first to the TV then to Rizzo then he said "You left me out of movie night."

"I thought you had an appointment today in like, five minutes." Rizzo told him. Steve replied "Well yes I did. But after the robbery I canceled it in case something else interesting happened."

"Well you could have said something." Rizzo said. Steve admitted that he could have and that even he didn't know why he hadn't then turned his attention back to Iri and asked "Are you his girlfriend?" As if that was a completely normal thing to ask someone he just met.

This time Iri was really startled. She whirled around and looked at Steve, those blue circles on her cheeks again. "What? No! Of course not!" She felt a little flustered. "I'm his friend, just like you are! Why should it be any different?"

Steve replied "Because Rizzo's crime rate has dropped since he met you and more importantly he's been more secretive than usual and he's been getting snappy when I ask about it and-"

"Enough!" Rizzo snapped then continued "She gave me a job ok?"

Steve started "You? A job?" Rizzo cut him off again "If you laugh so help me I will put fingerprints on your camera." Steve paused before saying "Well that's a very strong reaction. Am I right to suppose I'll get a worse one if I point out that you're both blushing?"

Rizzo lost his cool and yelled "THAT'S BECAUSE YOU SHOULDN'T JUST ASK IF TWO PEOPLE ARE DATING IF YOU JUST MET AT LEAST ONE OF THEM!" When Rizzo started yelling Steve quickly pulled his camera out of the house and away from Rizzo's hands but stayed in the conversation otherwise. "Even if I think you two would make a cute couple?" Steve asked.

Exasperated Rizzo snapped  "OMG! YES! HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW THIS BY NOW?! HAVEN'T YOU BEEN IN THIS TOWN AROUND HUMANS FOR LONGER THAN I KNOW YOU?!"

Steve replied "Yes. But regrettably there are many social ques I am not designed for. I was made for space. Not much interaction up there except anyone you bring with you and even then I was usually up there to do a specific job. Essentially I'm saying that this stuff is very complicated for me and I keep forgetting parts of it. In fact. Haven't I explained this to YOU before?"

Rizzo sighed. Then he said "Alright can we bring our attention back to movie night please?"

"Does this mean you aren't going to smudge my camera now?" asked Steve. Continuing with "You know those are very h.ard to remove without cloth to work with and I do not really have hands."

Rizzo replied that yes this meant he wasn't going to smudge Steve's camera if he stopped completely ruining movie night with weird questions. Almost immediately Steve's camera was back in the room. Steve turned it towards the group but mostly towards Iri because she was new as he said "I can project it big if anyone wants. Would anyone want that?" Dave looked exited at this prospect but he waited for the others to speak before he did. Rizzo turned to Iri and said "Well. You're the guest. Do you have an opinion?"

Iri shrugged. "I have no preference," she said. Her embarrasment was making her revert a bit to her formal, precise robotic speech, instead of her more relaxed and human one. "I would notice little difference between a big screen and a small one. I'm not sure how you watch movies with Steve, but if it involves going outside, I am indifferent to that as well. What would you two prefer? Dave obviously wants to watch with Steve."

Dave immediately said "Yes. I vote Steve."

"Steve it is." Rizzo agreed before ejecting the movie from the TV and leading the group outside and to the side of the house. He handed the movie to Dave and said "Can you please help Steve with that?" Before going back inside. Rizzo soon appeared on the roof with a very large bedsheet that he clipped one side of to the gutter with clothespins before going back through the house to rejoin the group. Dave meanwhile helped Steve insert the movie. By which I mean Steve opened a door (which was underneath him with a ramp in classic space ship style) and Dave went inside to gain access to the computer that was Steve's brain in order to put the movie in. When he came out he told Rizzo "I don't know why you're always so reluctant to do that part. It's not like he'll do anything to you." Rizzo asked him "Why would you even mention that? I said nothing about it this time?"

"You got that look in your eyes when you handed the movie to me." Dave replied.

"What look?" Asked Rizzo.

"The I'm disturbed look." Dave replied before continuing "I'm just wondering why it freaks you out. You've known him longer then I have. Do you still not trust him?"

Rizzo told Dave "Of course I trust him. Stuff like that just creeps me out. It doesn't matter who it is."

Dave said "Ya but. ....Why?" Rizzo threw both arms up in the air in frustration as he said "I don't know it just does! Can we please PLEASE just watch the stuped movie and stop talking about things that make everyone but the asker uncomfortable!!!"

Dave replied "Oh. Yes. Sorry. .....I'll...um.....I forgot the popcorn. Let me grab what's not on the floor." then ran inside. The group waited for Dave to get back then Steve brought out a tool on the end of an arm like his camera and used it to project the movie onto the bedsheet. Once everyone had settled down for some reason Steve decided to make things awkward again. He turned his camera towards Iri and said "You know I wasn't kidding when I said you and Rizzo would make a cute couple." Rizzo put his head in his hands with a sigh but didn't say anything.

 

 

 

((Steve ships them. XD))

 

((By the way. Rizzo has this thing with AI's that are or control things that are big enough to go inside of. The aspect of being able to walk inside of somebody creeps him out which is actually a trait I share with him. I've always been a little creeped out by the AIs in sci-fi storys that control whole buildings or are spaceships or things like that. At the same time I also think they are kind of cool and often end up including such a AI in sci-fi stuff I make up. I am weird.))

 

((Because I said I would give a better description of Steve when he showed up but don't know where to put it in the actual post I decided to put it here. Like I said in the PM Steve kind of looks like a mixture between a rocketship or a shuttle and a satellite. When on the ground his engines point out behind him giving him a very definite backside but he does have smaller thrusters in other places to give him maneuverability. He has four landing gear that are quite heavy set like an elephant's feet (but not nearly as graceful or flexible as an elephant's feet) and they have thrusters on the bottom of them to aid in take off and landing. Despite having a space inside him for smaller people to do stuff he doesn't have any windows. Instead the feed from his cameras (which he has multiple of) and other sensors are shown on indoor monitors. He had three of those arm cameras that can be retracted fully into his body as well as a permanent cluster of sensors on his front end. One of which is a large camera that can take the heat of entry and exit through the atmosphere unlike the smaller ones which are more sensitive and must be kept protected until ether Steve is entirely in space or entirely in the atmosphere at a speed that won't burn them up. He has a few other arms that different tools can be attached to but now adays he rarely uses any other tools besides the projector which is something that was added after he lost his job. In fact it's unknown if or how many of his other tools still work. On ether side of him is a satellite style solar pannle each longer than he is wide. These are made of super strong substances that can generally prevent them from breaking via gravity when fully extended on the ground but they can and must fold up when flying through an atmosphere. Despite kind of looking like wings and giving Steve kind of a fallen bird or resting dragon look when they are open they most definitely are not wings and the wind would make him crash if he tried to fly with them open. Being a space ship Steve can see/sense many different wavelengths of light without much trouble and he can also see great distances. All of his cameras are incredibly powerful which is part of the reason he did not like Rizzo threatening to smudge them. His cameras are such an important part of him that any sort of damaging or dirtying of them irritates him greatly to the point that he often has trouble focusing on other things until he fixes the problem with his camera.

Steve was originally created to be a multi purpose space vehicle. He could act as a shuttle or he could act as a satellite depending on what was needed. He has since been surpassed by better technology and so is now jobless and super bored. He actually lived through some of the past conflict between humans and AI before things became the way they are here. He is very old and every movement he makes is accompanied by some slight creaking in his joints as even though AIs are resistant to rust Steve does have a little (this may partly be because not only is he old but he has also been sitting outside for years exposed to the elementsl). It's unknown if he is still spaceworthy but he can still fly even though he doesn't do it often.))

((Wow, that's detailed! I kind of want to have both of us draw our characters, but I'm not a great artist and I'm not sure how you are. You wanna do it anyway?))

 

It didn't seem odd to Iri to enter a sentient spaceship, but then again she had been storing items inside her abdomen for years. She couldn't help but wonder why that didn't weird Rizzo out, and decided to ask him after the movie.

Then Steve said they would make a great couple. She blushed deeply again, but decided to ignore him. All through the movie she seemed very absorbed in the storyline.

 

((Wow, my posts are always way shorter than yours. I need to add another character that Iri can interact with.))

((I'm torn. Drawing our characters sounds kind of fun but I'm also not much of an artist and I don't think I could do Steve justice. I don't even know if I can properly draw a solar pannle.))

 

 

No one said much for the rest of the movie because...well...they were watching a movie. When the credits finally started rolling up the sheet Steve was projecting the movie onto Dave told Steve "Credit where credit is due man you really are good at doing that projecting thing. If it wasn't for the wind I would have forgotten I wasn't in a theater."

"Thank you!" Steve replied joyful over the fact that he got to be helpful in some way. (cuz, you know, the poor guy is usually bored)

Rizzo half joking and half being sincere added "The wind and the lack of a crying baby you mean. In some ways this is better than a theater." Dave chuckled and agreed that this was true. After that Rizzo turned to Iri and asked "So what did you think of your first movie experience?"

"Oh this is her first one?" Steve asked.

"Yup. This is her first movie." Rizzo replied.

((I think we should. Even trying would be fun.))

 

Iri tilted her head. "You know, that was actually really cool! I wouldn't mind seeing more of that." This superhero movie was one of a long series, one that a bunch of humans were total geeks over. They kept making new ones, but there were currently somewhere around twenty movies, maybe? She wasn't completely sure, but that estimate seemed about right.

Suddenly she realized what she had just done. Occasionally when she was running low on storage, she would delete information she didn't need, but she had never conciously deleted that. Instead, she had simply forgotten. But it wasn't completely gone, because she still had a general estimate of the idea. In short, she had just forgotten like a human.

((Mine might take a while))

 

"Heh. I thought you might like movies if you just tried them." Rizzo said with a chuckle. After which he continued "I actually have several more parts of that series. I don't have all of them yet but it's somewhere to start. You're welcome to join us for movie night any time."

Meanwhile Steve had gone silent and was staring at Iri. He wasn't trying to be unwelcoming or anything but something was...off about her. Why weren't some of her joints visible? Did she have some kind of rubber covering? Oblivious to or possibly to curious to care about the possible rudeness he performed a scan of Iri. The results confused him greatly. Her structure was unlike anything he had run into before. Well...not quite anything. It's just...she seemed to be some kind of hybrid but based on looks alone that wasn't possible as far as he knew. Were his sensors malfunctioning or had technology really gone that far past him without him knowing? Should he ask about it? He had already been scolded for being rude but....it was so interesting. He wanted to know.

Iri grinned. "I'd like that. When do you have movie nights? Same day every week?" She noticed Steve staring at her, like he was trying to figure something out, but ignored him. She didn't need some creepy satellite telling her what she should think about her friend.

Rizzo replied "Ya. Pretty much the same days every week. We occasionally add another random day on if we're really bored too but I can promise not to continue that super hero series without you there if you want. Now that I think about it I actually don't remember what started movie night we've been doing it for so long."

Steve told Rizzo "It started because I was annoying you." to which Rizzo said "Oh ya. ....Why did you admit that?" 

"You were wondering." replied Steve in a very matter of fact tone. Rizzo rolled his eyes. Before he could say anything more to ether Steve or Iri Steve told Iri "Ok I can't just keep wondering. Iri. I'm sorry if this is rude but....what are you made of exactly?"

"High-quality titanium-carbon alloy," Iri recited quickly. Then she paused. "Well, I was, at any rate. At this point I'm not entirely sure." Seeing that Steve looked blank (or was that just because he didn't have a face?) she continued. "I'm not entirely sure what's been happening, but I seem to be sort of becoming human. I started having real emotions, and then they got expressed in my voice, and then I was able to lie, which I was programmed not to do. Then my joints disappeared and a little compartment for storing things around here-" she gestured to her abdominal-ish area- "sealed up, and who knows? Soon I might start getting hungry, though hopefully not before I have an actual mouth to eat with. At this point I'm not sure what I am."

The aperture of Steve's camera shut and opened again. His version of blinking in suprize. "Becoming human? That really shouldn't be possible. Especially if you are not taking in large quantities of carbon and water. Or at least the water. And yet...." Steve's camera circled Iri as if he was getting a better scan. Once it had reached the point from which it had started Steve continued "To be honest with you Iri. I asked you what you are made of because I am getting some very abnormal readings from you. What you said does line up with the readings I'm getting but it still doesn't make any logical sense. Now the emotions. That does make sense. But the physical thing confuses me greatly. Do you suppose it could be some kind of nanobot infection?"

Rizzo mumbled "I hope not. Those things creep me out. It wouldn't stop me from hanging out with Iri or anything but still. Creepy."

 

 

 

 

((The emotions don't surprise Steve because he's already been infected with human emotions and has been for a long time. He's just never messed with the pocket knife of doom to cause any physical changes. Even if he does do that though I'll probably keep him as mostly a spaceship))

"Nanobots?" Iri shuddered. Those creeped even her out. They were similar to how a human (not Hypergoof) might view bugs or spiders--they weren't big enough to have any real AI, just some basic programming, and they were so small they could slip inside somewhere--or someone--without them noticing. Iri wasn't sure if they could get inside her right now, since her joints were gone, but they could have slipped in the joints earlier. Then again, maybe she had skin pores now, and a nanobot could slip into one of them.

Steve asked "Do you know of anything else that could do such a thing?" 

Rizzo glanced at Iri. He thought about the weird pocketknife thing and wondered if it used nanobots or some other technology they did not know about. He also wondered whether or not telling Steve about the pocket knife would be a good idea. He leaned towards no knowing how much Steve wouldn't leave him alone once he found out and knowing the kind of security hazard Steve was but part of him also wondered if Steve's scanning abilities could be useful. Was it worth the possible security hazard? He wasn't sure.

Iri glanced at Rizzo. She was pretty sure he was guessing whether or not to tell Steve about the knife. She looked up at Steve and shook her head. "Nope, there's nothing that I know of."

She would definitely discuss it further with Rizzo tomorrow, and maybe even agree to tell Steve, but there wasn't time to think about it or discuss it now.

Rizzo said "Well. On that happy note I think I'll go take the bedsheet off the roof now unless someone wants to use it again right away."

Iri helped them take it down, then said goodbye and glided away. As soon as she saw Rizzo that morning, she asked without prelude, "Should we tell Steve about the knife? And Dave?"

"I have been thinking about that too actually." Rizzo admitted before continuing with. "I'm not sure. On one hand they'll probably eventually find out anyway and Steve is very good at scanning things. On the other hand nether Steve or Dave are the best secret keepers. On the other other hand it does seem kind of weird to hide something from people I'm basically roommates with. On the other other other hand there's that secret keeping problem again."

 

 

 

((I am of course thinking of having our characters have to tell them at some point. The question is do they do it out of worry over the possible nanobots or do they do it when Twitchy comes into the scene and that sparks questions? I'm also wondering if it would be more interesting for Iri and Rizzo to bump into Twitchy or have Steve find him and then call Rizzo out of worry? (I'm planning to have whoever finds Twitchy find him passed out somewhere) ))

Iri sighed. "I mean, whoever we're dealing with already seems to know you have it, so I'm not sure how much they'll reveal, but on the other hand, what if that weird robot that attacked us goes after them because we told them, and it wants to find out where you keep it or, I don't know, how much you know about its capabilities?

"In all honesty I've never seen anything like that weird android and I've met a lot of AIs." Rizzo admitted. After a little while of thinking he said "That being said. If they know I have the thing they might go after Steve and Dave regardless of whether or not we tell them just on account of the fact that they live with me."

Iri looked worried. "I hadn't thought of that. Maybe we should tell them just enough to warn them to be on their guard? But then, Steve looks like the type to try to find out everything he possibly can about it. I don't know about Dave."

"Dave is known far and wide as a tattletale." Rizzo replied. He continued "But maybe if he knew this was dangerous he wouldn't. His reputation comes from his telling on theifs like me. Perhaps if we gave him a reason not to tell he won't be so bad. Steve would definitely try to find out all he can. That's just how he is. But do we really need to hide much other than where I keep the thing from Steve? I get the feeling that the ones who are after it already know what it does. We're the ones who are clueless."

 

 

 

 

((How do you feel about me pushing their hand by having Steve find Twitchy while they are still debateing on whether or not to tell Steve anything or would you rather I hold that off?))
