Iri shrugged. "Well, when I go back to sleep, let's not repeat the experiment, all right?"

The next morning the group woke to find a pile of those horror movie esc pictures drawn by Twitchy during the night. Rizzo, Dave and Steve didn't seem concerned as if this was a normal thing. Steve was the only one who seemed interested in them but only because he wanted to keep a few of them and was picking the keepers out of the pile (by shoving them to the side with the side of his camera) before the pile was thrown away. ((Twitchy draws so many pictures the house would be flooded if they did not throw some of them away. Luckily Twitchy didn't care which adds to the weirdness about his art since most people would care))

Rizzo and Dave both poured themselves some cereal with milk. Twitchy seemed content with just eating his dry and right out of the box.

Iri spared the drawings a large amount of CPU to determine there were no general types that she hadn't seen before. Again, the spidery creature showed up frequently, but her image recognition softwarer confirmed that there were no important differences between any of these drawings and those previous.

"Would you like me to carry you to work again?" she asked Rizzo.

 

((I love the roleplay too. I'd probably care more about the forum in general if I could still log into School of Dragons, but my computer won't run it anymore, either download or online. Well, I haven't tried in a while, and I suppose I could check again...))

Rizzo replied "Honestly? At the risk of perpetrating the lazy human stereotype I will take up that offer if you're offering it. Flying is awsome."

 

 

 

((Honestly I'm currently mostly on the forum for RPing and storys. Although I keep track of the game I'm not a huge fan of racing or the other minigames and I'm not in any clans so I don't actually have much to do in the game itself))

Iri nodded, strapped on the jetpack, and grabbed him around the chest (scientifically the best way to support a person).

 

((I have no idea if that is scientifically the best way to support a person.))

((I used to do a lot of roleplaying here, but I've been feeling some roleplay burnout from other sites lately. It's hard to even care about most RPs. I do kind of miss the art community, though. Requests and adoptables and such. Those were a lot of fun.))

Steve saw them get ready for take of and called "Bye! I hope you two have a good day!" right when the actual take off was happening.

Rizzo could hear that Steve said something but couldn't make it out through the wind and his ears popping. "What did he say? Could you pick that up at all?" Rizzo asked loudly to get over the wind.

Rizzo said "Well. That was so jumbled I didn't pick it up ether. I wouldn't worry about it though. Knowing Steve he was likely just saying see you later or something of the like. If it was actually important he'll probably call you shortly via your brain telephone." 

No "brain telephone" call came proving that Rizzo's hunch was likely right. On the way though Rizzo pointed downward and said "Hey look at that." down below there were road blocks next to a few streets but not blocking them yet like they were ready to be moved into place when the time came. Rizzo continued "They're going to have a parade later. Have you ever been to a parade Iri?"

 

 

 

((I feel like one would have to be really petty to be legitimently mad at someone for leaving a RP with full polite warning that they may be leaving beforehand. A little sad it has to end sure but actully mad? I think I'd be the bad guy there. XD))

"Please do not call it a Brain Telephone," Iri sighed, but she wasn't sure Rizzo had heard her. A few moments later, he pointed out the parade below her.

"A parade? No, I don't think I have been to one. What do they do?"

 

((Yeah, that's true.))

Rizzo explained "People make these big epic moving displays and everyone who wants to see them lines up along the street to see them go by. There's usually music too and sometimes candy being thrown at the crowd for the kids but I doubt you'd care much for the candy part. I know it sounds silly but it's a lot more fun then it sounds. There is often a surprising amount of work put into the floats and costumes."

 

 

 

 

((For some reason Iri asking Rizzo not to call it a brain telephone made me laugh. I don't even know why but I legitimately chuckled))

The workday was uneventful. At some point near the end Rizzo said "We should probably go a little early so we can get good spots. I know you can fly but I don't want to end up stuck behind someone taller then me which is likely to happen."

Rizzo noted that several other people had the same idea. The place was already getting crowded. However they did manage to find a good spot. Rizzo pointed and told Iri "They're going to come from that direction. You'll know it's coming because you'll here it before you see it."

Iri nodded and eagerly awaited the parade. Before too long, music drifted towards her down the street, and she began recording. Usually, she only remembered the fact that events had happened and a few images, just like any human--she didn't have enough storage for direct recording of every event. For special occasions, though, she stored the entire memory, so she could pull it out at any time and relive it.

Parade floats began to march past, each more unique and interesting than the last. Many of them had people on them, some just standing and waving, but some doing different things. One group went by on a very flat float, doing impressively synchronized gymnastics. Another float contained trained dogs showing off. A third had only one rider, shooting arrows at a target across the float in sets of three, hitting the bullseye without fail. Each flat clearly showed off what made each of the people who'd created it unique--their interests, their hobbies, their tastes, their personalities. It struck Iri like a thunderbolt just how different and creative all these humans were. She never would've thought of half the brilliant design features on even a single float.

The parade wound down and finally finished, but a crowd lingered, turning to each other to discuss the parade with both friends and strangers. She recognized a few people who'd been on the float in the crowd. "Do you mind staying around for a while?" she asked Rizzo, eager to discuss these people's creativity further.

 

((I don't know much about parades, like if the floats are privately made or done by companies, but I think the things I did would work either way.))

Iri

Iri nodded gratefully and turned to look around. One of the float riders, the archery girl, was right behind her, looking at her with an expression of mild dislike. Probably. She might've just eaten something gross, or seen someone else she didn't like before she looked at Iri, or Iri's facial analysis might be completely wrong. Smiling brightly, she turned to the girl.

"Hello! I saw your float, and it was really cool. All the floats were cool! How do you humans come up with such amazing ideas?"

The woman's scowl deepened. Uh-oh. Did I say something offensive? I was giving a compliment!

"I like to make things too!" she said. "It's just... all those floats were so unique, and if robots were given the task to make a float, they'd probably all make the exact same one."

Now the woman raised an eyebrow. "A robot admitting humans are better at something?" She scoffed. "That's a first."

Iri blinked. "Have I offended you in some way?"

"You? No. All the other robots..." She trailed off. Implying something. Yes?

"If I have not offended you, why are you angry with me?"

She snorted. "You just said it. All robots are the same. Snooty piles of bolts, thinking they're above all us 'meat-heads'."

Iri blinked. "But--but humans and robots both have areas of expertise! I can think quickly, but you can think originally. We're logical and methodical; you're passionate." She realized that probably sounded like a bad thing, and added, "So when you really care about something, you put all your effort and creativity into making it the best thing it can be, while we make it the same quality as everything else," without missing a beat. "They're both important, and both groups need both!"

"We need you guys to get the boring, methodical work done, but you sure as **** don't need us. When was the last time you saw a robot at an art gallery? When was the last time you saw a robot as a movie? You don't get squat from that passion and creativity you go on about, so you don't care squat. That's the truth of life--nobody cares about anything that doesn't benefit them."

"That's not true! We care!" Iri was starting to get upset, but she forced her expression and tone back to flat.

"Maybe you do. I've heard more emotion from you in this one conversation than I've heard from a robot in twenty years."

"Just because robots don't always show emotion doesn't mean they don't feel it," Iri objected. "Are you  one of those people who thinks robots just imitate life? 'They're not really sapient, they're just programmed to act like they are!' Is that it? And yes I've seen that theory, I look at the internet, you know!" Emotion was venting out of her again. She couldn't keep it contained. "We don't just spit out default responses to stimuli!"

"Isn't that what you just said you do?" the woman snapped. "If given a task, you'll all complete it the same way?"

"Yes, but that's not- Ugh! You know what? For all you complain about robots looking down on humans, thinking they're so superior, I think you have the exact same problem!" Iri whirled and glided off before the human could respond.

Were all humans like this? Well, Rizzo wasn't, and neither was Dave, but what about the others? Did they think the robots were just snooty jerks too?

Were they right?

She remembered how reluctant her boss had been to hire Rizzo, how hard she'd had to argue. Well, at least he'd listened to her arguments! He'd been able to consider the facts and change his views when it was logical to do so. But humans were often irrational. Would any of them do the same? Were a lot of the humans in the area glaring at her, or was her imagination causing her to misinterpret already uncertain facial expressions?

Suddenly, Iri wasn't sure she wanted to stay any longer.

 

((Whoo, long update! I had a lot of fun writing this, actually.))

((Hey, are you planning to do a screenshot comic of the new expansion? I'd love to see it if you do. Since I can't play SoD anymore, I want to see what the new expansion's story is!))

Rizzo ran to Iri's side seeing she was upset. He put an arm around her shoulders supportively. For a few seconds he looked like he was going to say something to her but he changed his mind and left to confront the other human instead. "YO! WHAT THE H.ELL IS YOUR PROBLEM!" he snapped. One could almost feel the adrenalin rushing through Rizzo's blood just by looking at him. He didn't care if he was making a bigger scene. No one talked to his friends like that!

 

 

((Honestly I really really want to screenshot comic this expansion. But I have a really active RP sucking up ALL of my free time as well as the stress of school just starting for me. I don't know if I have the energy to do it.))

Iri weighed the situation. On one hand, she didn't want another fight. On the other, she knew that the situation needed resolved, and perhaps the human would be more willing to listen to Rizzo (another human) than to her.

"And why do you care--oh. Oh my G.od." Iri leaned forward. Did she get it? Get that humans and robots could be friends?

"You guys are dating."

No. No she did not.

Oddly Rizzo didn't immediately deny it. Instead he said "Not again! I thought that was just Steve being Steve when he thought we were dating! Now a stranger thinks so too so we must actually look like we're dating!"

Then getting back on point Rizzo continued "Anyway, doesn't matter. The point is we're not dating. We're just friends." he crossed his arms like that would further his point somehow.

Rizzo isn't helping matters any. He won't change her mind; all they're going to do is draw more attention. And if she calls me a 'pile of bolts' one more time, he might tell her I'm turning human. I'm not sure I want anyone to know about that yet.

Uncertain how to interrupt, she simply grabbed his arm and pulled him gently away from the human. "Don't bother," she said, once they were lost in the crowd. "It's not going to change anything."

They wandered around the area, looking for a space open enough for them to use the jetpack. The parade ground was crowded, and it took them nearly fifteen minutes to find a place to take off. But just as Iri was gunning up the jetpack, a voice called, "Wait!"

She turned towards the sound and was surprised to see the same human as before. She took a deep breath to respond, but before she could start, the woman said, "I've been thinking about what you said, once the heat of the argument cooled off a bit, and... you were right. I was doing the exact thing I accused you of: baseless assumptions about a large group." She dug at the ground with one foot. "I owe you both an apology."

Huh, look at that. Humans can change their minds when presented with evidence that disagrees. Just not in the middle of a heated argument.

"Apology accepted." She offered a hand. "My name is Iridia."

"Jennifer." The woman shook it.

 

((Note: Rizzo has every reason to still be annoyed. Iri doesn't get the concept of grudges yet.))

Rizzo started to say "Hey!" when Iri grabbed him. Sure it wasn't a yank but he didn't particularly like being silenced even if the reason seemed sound. Still he did go silent as he was lead away. When the women approached them again he was still very heated from the insults. Insults that ironically he had said to some in the past but being human his hypocrisy did not immediately come to mind any more then the women's could when she was riled up. He watched Iri shake hands with the women while his own arms were crossed. However by this point he had calmed enough to not want to be a bad example so despite the fact that it still came out a little snappy and he hadn't actully forgiven her yet he said "Apology accepted too." and offered his hand as well. He didn't however make eye contact while he was doing so.

"You're the archer, right?" Iri asked. "Facial recognition software's still not perfect. It was always one of the biggest struggles in developing AI."

"Yes, I had the archery float," Jen said. "You know, if you want... you can come look at it, and try it out."

A concilliatory gesture. Something fairly personal to her, and also something I showed interest in. She's really trying.

"I'd love to try it."

"Archery isn't just numbers," Jen objected. "You don't calculate how to shoot based on angle and distance and whatever. It's instincts drilled in by years of practice, so you don't have to even think about how to fire, you just do it. And only humans can do that."

"Yes, but that's necessitated by their inability to actually crunch the numbers," Iri said. "However, humans are more likely to note unexpected factors that would influence it, like..." She thought for a moment. "Like wind." She glanced down at her arm. "I'm also not certain my shoulder joint moves in the way required."

Rizzo said "You know what humans are also good at? Trying things even if they know they might be horrible at it. Try it Iri! Try it! I'm still very curious to see how this turns out. If you do it I will and I've never held an actual bow like that in my life. One time I fixed up an automated one. That's about it. You'll have something to laugh at if you fail horribly."

"All right, I'll try it out," Iri agreed.

Soon they reached the float. Iri climbed up onto it (with only a little difficulty), and Jen clambered after her. "I'll show you how to stand first, without using the bow. It's easiest that way. Do your closest approximation of this."

She planted her feet apart, the left one forward. The distance between her feet was about the width of her shoulders. Then she stood very straight and pulled one arm backwards almost to her ear, the elbow sticking out behind her, and held the other arm straight out in front of her.

Iri mimicked this stance as well as she could. Jen looked it up and down. "You're standing too sideways," she critiqued. "Even though your legs are supposed to be one in front of the other, you should still face forwards."

"Well, that doesn't make much sense," Iri complained, but she followed suit.

Jen nodded approvingly and handed her the bow. "It goes in your left hand. Nock the arrow on the string, and put the shaft on that little hook on the grip. Good. Now draw it." Iri pulled it back slowly. "Yes! I've never seen form that good on any of my beginning students! Okay, sight right down the shaft, it helps if you close one- er- how does your sight work, anyway?"

"Just one camera, under my screen." She placed the back of the arrow against the center of the screen, which looked a little odd to those watching.

"You'll need to raise it a little to compensate for gravity, but not much. The float doesn't have room for a very long shot. That's part of why it was so easy to hit so consistently well during the parade."

Iri was about to start weighing the arrow, measuring the distance, and calculating the angle she needed to lift it at, but part of her brain said, why not see how well you can do just on instinct?

She released the string.

The arrow made an extremely satisfying THUNK and stuck in the target, several inches above the bullseye and a little to the right. "Not bad for a first shot," Jen said approvingly. Iri beamed.

Rizzo chuckled watching Jen correct Iri's posture. Particularly when Iri said part of it didn't make sense. He wasn't sure why it was amusing. He certainly wasn't laughing at Iri specifically. Maybe it was just the sight of a human giving a robot instructions instead of the other way around. He and Iri had been on unusually equal ground among robot and human partnerships. It was the same with him and Steve. But he hadn't gotten to watch many such interactions without being part of it himself. There was Dave and Steve but they just kind of hung out because Dave had to deal with Steve while he was living near him. Very little instructing was involved except when Dave was helping Steve set up a movie and Rizzo wouldn't enter Steve to watch that. There was the same problem with Twitchy who also- Rizzo realized his brain was going off on a tangent as the arrow hit the target. Rizzo clapped and said "I agree with Jen. Not bad." In truth though he was kind of surprised it wasn't more accurate. It wasn't a bad first shot for sure but he ran into the disturbing realization that he had just assumed Iri would be really good at this because she had a computer brain. Or...at least a mostly computer brain. Rizzo had always kind of assumed that AIs were just better then humans in general. Sure there were a few places where humans still did good but he'd always gone the route of if he didn't know humans were better at something he just assumed the AI would win. He'd generalized and realizing this felt....kind of bad. He also couldn't help but wonder if Iri's slowly becoming biological might have something to do with this but if Iri had felt unsure perhaps that meant this not quite on target with something new thing was normal for her. Shaking his thoughts away after Iri had plenty of time to bask in the glory of her not horrible shot Rizzo asked "So....my turn?"

Iri hadn't been expecting Rizzo to try, but once the idea had been introduced, she loved it. "Oh, yes. This I want to see." She handed him the bow, and Jen stepped up to help him get the right posture. She moved him around gently for a minute or two, then stepped back.

"Okay! Shoot!"

Rizzo let the arrow fly. It sailed to the target and landed....a few inches below the bullseye and a little to the left. Exactly opposite of Iri's. Rizzo blinked and stared at the result. "It....didn't turn out awful?" he asked no one in particular before throwing his arms in the air and yelling "WOOOO! It didn't turn out awful! I mean it's not GOOD ether but hey I'll take not awful."

Jen looked at the two shots, then said, "Both of them are a little to the side. That usually surprises new archers. The reason is that when you fire, the bow often jumps a little to one side or the other. It takes a lot of practice to overcome that, though, so you're pretty good."

"My turn!" Iri called again.

They kept shooting, with Jen making corrections, for nearly an hour. Finally Jen said, "Isn't it getting kind of dark for this?"

"Is it?" Iri looked around. "This is dark for you guys?"

Jen scowled a little, but she knew Iri didn't mean it in a derogatory way. "Yes. This is dark for humans. We should be heading home."

Iri nodded. "Okay. Oh, here." She wrote down her phone number and handed it to Jen. "We should meet again. This was fun."

Iri agreed as they went their separate ways. The next few days were fairly uneventful, and before she knew it, it was movie night again. She called Jen and invited her, and Jen was eager to come hang out.

 

((Time skip okay? Was uncertain what else to do.))

((Time skip is perfectly fine))

 

 

As Dave was setting up the giant sheet Steve would project the movie onto. Twitchy was in the house while the group waited for Jen as Rizzo thought it was still a good idea to let Jen warm up to one weird thing at a time. The plan was for the hybrid to come outside after Jen had met Steve. That or she would come inside to greet everyone or use the bathroom and then meet Twitchy after having met Steve. Ether way Rizzo doubted Jen would miss the house sized AI and would bump into Steve first one way or another. The shuttellite ((shuttle satellite)) that was Steve was fully alert. It wouldn't be like when Iri came over the first time where Steve was distracted by something and hadn't noticed her untill she'd already gone into the house. There would be no camera through a window scares.....hopefully.

As they waited for Jen Rizzo asked Iri "You DID warn her that Steve exists right? He HAS scared guests before."

Iri and Jen

"Yeah, I did."

Jen arrived not long after. She stared up at Steve with wide eyes. "Wow. You weren't kidding when you said your next-door neighbor was a spaceship."

"Did you think I was?"

"Well, kinda. I didn't really expect a robot to pull a prank like that, but then, you told me not to make judgements like that." She looked up at Steve. "So, I didn't know what to think. But that is an honest-to-goodness spaceship."

Steve said "Well....Technically I don't know if I'm still spaceworthy. I WAS a spaceship though and I can still fly if that means anything. I just don't know if I can leave the atmosphere. You must be Jen."

Rizzo whispered to Jen "Don't be freaked out if he stares at you or asks personal questions. He means no harm. Just tell him the question is personal and he should back off. I don't know if there's a way to stop the staring though. He just kind of does that."
