Iri sent back, I don't know. There's no way to tell yet. This was accompanied by a shrugging motion. Communication wasn't limited to just words anymore. Robots could also send each other information from each of their senses, and even emotions, or the faint feelings that passed for emotion among robots.

 

((Senses include different things for different robots. Everyone has hearing and sight. Iri has something similar to smell. Some robots have touch. Robots likely also have the ability to feel their body moving around, so Iri sent what a shrug feels like to her. Due to this ability to share, many robots know exactly what some senses they don't even have are like, and what it feels like to be in differently-shaped bodies.))

"That's true." Steve admitted. "I hope it turns out well. You know, not anything too unpleasant." After a short pause he added "Let me know what it's like to eat food ok? Assuming you can still do this when and if you reach that point. I tried to ask the hybrid but he could only try to explain it and couldn't actually send me anything."

 

 

 

 

 

((That's a cool idea. Also I bet that means that any AI who has such a conversation with Steve or Iri would get quite a emotion surprise. XD))

After that Steve's messages became less helpful. His next one was "They're having a thumb war. I warned Dave it was probably not a good idea but the hybrid was bored and Dave relented. Not surprisingly Dave keeps losing." followed by a video of one of the thumb wars.

Iri wasn't sure what to respond to that. After a long while (.78 seconds) of thought, she said, I guess that could be expected.

Less than a minute later Steve updated "Dave's fingers are now sore but the hybrid is still bored. He's banging pots and pans together. ....like a child. I think it's kind of cute really but Dave only seems to be tolerating it and I'm sure Rizzo wouldn't be amused if he was here. I'm not sure the neighbors will like it if this goes on much longer ether."

"Oh hey you're right. Dave gave him some paper and now he's drawing." Steve said. "I'm not sure what it is though." Steve stuck his camera over the hybrid's shoulder and snapped a picture of the hybrid's picture. It appeared to be a very poorly drawn picture of the pocket knife thing.

Iri gasped audibly, then sent quickly, Ask him how much he remembers about it. Then she called across the junkyard, "Rizzo! The hybrid knows something about the knife!"

Rizzo snapped to attention. Hearing his name be called but having been too focused on his work to hear what was being told to him he asked "Huh? What?"

"That hybrid cyborg thing! He knows something about the knife! I don't know how much he remembers. Steve should get back to me on that soon." Iri started heading towards Rizzo so they didn't have to shout across the whole junkyard.

"Did the cyborg say something about it or something?" Rizzo asked.

 

Meanwhile Steve sent "I asked him about it. He says he's not sure he can talk about it. I asked him what he meant and why he drew it if he can't talk about it but he said he didn't know. Is this thing important or something? You seemed distressed about it."

Apparently some emotion had bled over into the transmission without her conciously sending it. Interesting, and maybe a bit worrying, but she could think about that later. "He was drawing and he drew it. He says he's not sure if he can talk about it and he doesn't know why he drew it at all or why he's not allowed to talk about it." Simultaneously, she told Steve, It's just something I've seen before and it's a bit mysterious. Don't tell him I know anything about it yet.

While Steve sent "So it IS important then? Ok. I won't tell the hybrid you know about it."

"I've asked people weirder things." Steve replied after which there was a minute of nothing before his next message came. "His reaction was weirder than the question. I asked him and he said he didn't know and then he took a needle from in Rizzo's house and pricked his finger to find out. It turns out that yes. He bleeds."

Steve replied "You know how Rizzo use to be a thief? That involved lots of climbing under fences and it turns out that tends to tear human cloths. Also Rizzo will just wear cloths until they fall apart naturally. He won't buy more unless he absolutely has to. I think he can sew more than that though because suspiciously there is a sewing machine in his room."

Iri grinned. She was definitely going to make fun of Rizzo about this. After a few moments, however, she remembered why she had actually asked the question. "Rizzo, can I see that screw?"

"Sure." Rizzo replied before handing it over. "Just remember it's mine and not for welding into art." Of course he didn't actully think Iri would do that. It was more a joke than anything.

Iri turned it over in her fingers again, but she didn't really need the confirmation. She already knew. "Rizzo," she said, "I think that robot you took this from was another hybrid."

"Eeahuuch!" Rizzo said. That means I totally touched cyborg blood! I hope there's nothing weird in it! By which I mean nanobots or something. Ever since Steve mentioned the possibility of those I have been super creeped out."

"I don't think they probably have nanobots. That seems like just something weird Steve would say," Iri reassured. Hey, Steve, when that hybrid poked himself did he heal unusually quickly or did it take a pretty normal amount of time?

Iri said, Usually they stop bleeding within like thirty seconds. If it hasn't yet, then I think that answers my question. That, or he just poked really deeply.

We just don't have a large enough amount of evidence, Iri said. And we probably can't ask him to injure himself just so we can find out. Meanwhile she told Rizzo, "That's really cool! Can I see?"

"Definitely true." Steve said. Rizzo meanwhile put his asp in the box down on the ground and walked in front of it. The metal skeleton of the false snake (Rizzo had still not put the fabric on it yet) popped out with a speed that might even impress the real thing.

Iri laughed. She hadn't even known robots could laugh, and this wasn't some recording of a laugh that she was playing. It was her very own laugh, unique and personal, and she thought it sounded perfect. "That's really cool!" she said, and she was only half talking about the asp in the box.

Iri turned to Rizzo and said, "Apparently the hybrid said he was tired and then just conked out, completely asleep. I mean, robots can pretty much power down whenever, but we don't usually in the middle of the day. We don't need to."

Hey, Steve, can you time him? I want to know how much rest he needs. Check tonight, too.

Does he feel fully rested? How tired, exactly, was he? Was it like when he goes to bed at night and wakes up in the morning, or just like a normal human nap? Iri was completely intrigued. This was far more interesting than anything else she'd wondered about the hybrid so far.

"He says he was just wanted a nap which I assume means not nighttime human tired but still tired. He doesn't know how to be more specific than that." Steve replied

"Yes you did. And you sounded like Rizzo. Well a female version but still." Steve told her. He then added "Yup. You two are made for each other. Do you do puns like he does?"

((Steve is quickly becoming my favorite character))

 

Um, no, I've never really been into puns. The mind of a robot isn't great at appreciating puns. Maybe now that I'm more human I'll get them, but I can't guarantee I'll enjoy them. The usual human emotional response seems to be disgust, and I have been getting grossed out by things I never used to. It's not really the same kind of disgust, but it could still correlate. Iri suddenly realized something they hadn't investigated. Hey, while on that subject, can you ask the hybrid how he feels about standard "gross" things like that toilet and anything slimy you can find? See if you can get him to touch them and snap a picture or a short clip of his reaction.

A little later Steve sent back "I found this video of a botfly removal and another of humans popping a several year old zit. It made me feel sick. Do you think this is gross enough to test with? Also I found roadk.ill." Steve sent Iri both the videos and a picture of a dead partly rotten raccoon.

 

 

Edit; ((I really freaking love Steve too. XD))

Iri agreed, quickly deleting the memory of the images and videos, as they grossed her out too.

 

((I'm not sure if I'm actually going to give her legs or not. Her learning to walk would be HILARIOUS, but I have no idea how to make them show up. Would she just wake up with legs one day? That seems like a kind of big change, but having them grow slowly also seems really weird. I'm just not sure.))

A little while later Steve sent back "Not a huge reaction to the roadk.ill other then a slightly discusted expression when I asked him if he would be willing to pick it up. He grabbed it by the tail with as few fingers as possible like a human would if said human was willing to touch it in the first place. He gave me no argument against it but did seem confused when I didn't actully want him to do anything with it other then that. His reaction to both the videos was less amusing by which I mean nothing happened. However by compleet accident I found out he has a strange reaction to spiders. I wouldn't call it grossed out per say and I wouldn't say he likes them ether but they diffenitly get his attention." Steve included all the reaction videos in his messige along with one of the hybrid stareing at a spider like he was trying to have a stareing contest with it. The hybrid watched the arachnid with a blank expression and nothing on him moved other than his eyes and head as the spider crawled allong.

 

 

 

 

((Probubly a spoiler but I'm thinking of having Twitchy's boss be an AI who has a lot of arms/legs (arms that can also act as legs) therefore many bugs remind Twitchy of them. Espessully spiders. Plus spiders are creepy for most people so this could easily give Rizzo good "being snarky" material))

((Haha, yeah, 'most people'... *sweats nervously*))

((I'm kind of arachnophobic... like, actual phobia, not just I'm a little scared of them...))

 

Iri watched that one with interest. The hybrid didn't seem the type to stare at anything without moving, and the fact that he did that with a spider was especially odd. She wondered what his reaction to other similar animals would be, but decided to wait on researching it for a while.

((My mom has arachnophibia too. I don't know if it's better or worse than yours though. What I do know is that it is worse than simply being creeped out))

 

 

After that Steve sent Iri several useless to the topic at hand animal videos that he thought were cute as he had been completely distracted by YouTube when looking for the gross things. (Partly he was trying to get the gross stuff out of his head too)
