Meridiana is still functioning perfectly, though she continues to not remember a single detail of her past. I am glad of that much.

Unfortunately, my superiors learned of her clairvoyance very likely by stealing my notes and have decided to use it for profit. They're advertising her as a psychic and scheduling her to make appearances at high-society parties. And I'll have to go with her to make sure she doesn't rot away.

Joy of joys. Instead of working in the lab, I have to rub elbows with nobles and pretend to care.

And even better, I've been given an assistant, it seems. Which, from experience, means he'll be reporting my every movement to my superiors. Lovely.

Also, it appears that he's twelve.


((Just letting you guys know: if anyone ever apps Cassian [the assistant, who is not actually twelve], I WILL ADORE YOU FOR THE REST OF TIME. Especially because he and Jezebel are so near-canonly a couple by the end that it is painful.))

A twelve year-old assistant? I think there's laws for stuff like that, isn't there, old man? Teeheehee!

Delilah's never really cared too deeply about laws.

And it turns out I'm mistaken, he is not actually twelve years old, despite his appearence.

Oh. Well, then I guess it would've worked out either way!

So, like, what do you do anyway? I'm getting a big Zombie Creator vibe from all that talk about this psychic girl rotting away!

I suppose. I'm still stuck with him, however.

I'm a doctor. I work for an organization called Delilah, which develops new ways of raising the dead.

Oooh, so I was right! That is pretty genius, if you ask me. Our army has dabbled in cloning people, but if we could raise the dead...! Teeheehee! That would be mind-blowing!

Thank you. We've been working on these methods for many years now. We've learned multiple ways of accomplishing resurrection.

Your army uses clones?

Date: 2010-10-14 02:24 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
There's more than one way to do it? Neeeeeaat! Not my expertise, but still pretty creepy and cool all the same, teehee!

Sorta. It takes a ton of energy to power the machine that makes them, but we do now and then when the time calls for it. They die waaaaay too fast, though. They'll probably last as long as one battle then disintegrate into a puddle of icky stuff!

This is the second successful method, though we've been developing others as well.

Then why clone them to begin with?

The more the better, I say!

Beats me! It was our ex-leader's crazy idea. Maybe he just wanted to mess with our enemy's stupid little brains. Maybe he thought using their own strengths against them would help us. I don't really care why, to be honest!

Date: 2010-10-14 05:40 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Dunno, it's just not my problem! It was his idea to use the stupid clones, which ended up failing anyway!

Date: 2010-10-15 04:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
And who's he, the one that decided to use the clones?

Date: 2010-10-15 05:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
His name was Sturm, but he's kinda dead now! Teeheehee! We got a new boss, Von Bolt, and he uses the clones too.

Seems like a waste to keep using them.

I guess it is, but whatever! It's not my problem!

No, I suppose it isn't.

Sounds like you're having a bad day.

That I am. When I worked to resurrect Meridiana, it was not with the intention of having to take her party-hopping, of all the inane things in the world.

And especially not with an incredibly cranky assistant in tow.

Not much of a party guy, I guess?

You can't do anything about the assistant?

From: [identity profile]
I don't like people in general. Having to deal with people in large, dense amounts is not my idea of an enjoyable time.

No, not for the time being. It seems that my superiors looked at my ability to restore Meridiana and thought I would be best for granting his desire for joining Delilah. ...he wants a new body, which is not even remotely the same thing, but for some reason they think I'll come up with something.

Just do what I do - pretend to be intoxicated and then hit on your worst enemy.

Not the same thing, but I guess it's nice that they have confidence in you? I'd offer to supply you a suitable body but I'm low on resources these days.

Date: 2010-10-17 03:24 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
...that's one way of handling things, I suppose.

I appreciate the offer. As it is, though I don't think I'd be able to do much. Fixing Meridiana with new parts was difficult enough, and she was a corpse, and he wants...either to be fixed so that he's his proper age or a whole new body, in which case his brain needs to be transplanted. I'm sure it can be done, but as it is the only way I'd be able to would be to kill him first. Which I'm fairly sure he doesn't want.

Killing him first seems like the easiest solution all around, though. Brain transplant surgery is no joke.

From: [identity profile]
Believe me, I know. But I doubt he's going to sign off on being killed off in the hopes of being brought back. Even if it went successfully, he'd still be tied to Delilah for the rest of his existence, because he'd need to be fed new blood, just as Meridiana does.

Date: 2010-10-18 05:25 am (UTC)
screwloose: (Buh?)
From: [personal profile] screwloose
Out of curiosity, does it matter to you so much what he wants?

Date: 2010-10-18 12:34 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Not really. But it seems like an exceptionally bad idea to kill him off and bring him back when he's going to have easy access to the poison cabinet.

You make a good point.

I sometimes do that on occasion.

In any event, it's not something I'll need to focus on right away. He's only just arrived.

I suppose it all depends on how long you want him to stick around.

Date: 2010-10-20 01:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Not long. I prefer to work on my own, or at least pick the people I'm working with on my own. But I can't really put everything on the back burner to focus on him for the time being.

Date: 2010-10-20 03:26 pm (UTC)
screwloose: (Pondering)
From: [personal profile] screwloose
True enough. And at least he's an extra pair of hands for now. Sometimes that's invaluable.

Date: 2010-10-20 04:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
That's true. I'll find ways to keep him useful, if only for now.

Good luck!
