[x] Merlin wants us to get VDNI.

You shrug. “Merlin wants us to get VDNI.” You say, waiting till she opens her mouth to respond before adding “And Jess says hi.”

She chokes briefly, then looks at you. “Asshat. One problem at a time. Merlin wants VDNI?”

“No,” you correct “She wants both of us to get it.”

Slider shakes her head. “I don't know shit about it, other than whats in there” She points at the intel binder. “Seems risky though.”

You shrug. “Hard to say, there's no testing I know of on this side. The little bit we've seen of it is pretty damn impressive-”

“But we don't know what kind of risks there are.” Slider says. “Besides, aren't you good enough? This seems like a waste.”

“Every bit counts.” You point out, and she nods. “And- well, like I said. We saw what it let someone do and it was-”

“Like that matters.” Slider responds. “You can already do impressive shit, Frank. You don't need it.”

“I'm just putting forward what we know.” You say, shrugging. “I'm on the fence, myself.”

“Frank, you know what Sam's like with new tech. She loves it, all of it. Something like this? Shit yeah she wants it. Kids a whatsit. Technophile in the biggest way. But we don't know the risks, we don't know how long you'd be down re-learning everything with this in you and-” She shakes her head. “I don't agree with her at all.”

“Like I said, I'm on the fence.” you say again. “It's not like we need to decide soon anyway, we've got some time.”

File: 38 KB, 450x600, Will probably post his own gaurd over Merlin, though Slider's gonna wonder how he got there. And why he's got a M1911 a Ka-bar, and a BAR.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

[x] We'll talk to Brigitte, see if she'll task a witch to keeping an eye on Merlin.

You nod. “Yeah... yeah, good point. We'll talk to Brigitte, see if she'll task a witch to keeping an eye on Merlin.” you say, nodding to the SEAL on duty near the armored door to the magazine. “I'm ok... I think... with her going, like, back to Japan with Kenji, eventually, but... that, ya know. Thats different.”

Ice nods.

Inside, Merlin's already standing by a pair of wheeled weapons carts- designed so a cart can be hooked up to them to wheel them out, in the castle they're more reliant on sheer manpower- though you're pretty sure if it came down to speed, one of the tank witches could help move one pretty quickly.

On the left, a pair of cannons with angular aerodynamic shrouds rests on a custom built rack, with a pair of other, unidentifiable pods sitting below them. On the other, something that looks like a larger bomblet dispenser box sits near a pair of smaller twins, along with another pair of flat black modules, each about the size of your nacelle bays.

“Ok, so what are we looking at?” You ask, and Merlin nods.

“O-Ok. So this one,” She pats the pair of cannons. “Is the Electromagnetic launcher, or EML. You k-know how stonehenge works?”

You shake your head, having not actually paid attention too much.

[x] So where do we go from here?

“So where do we go from here?” You ask. “It sounds like there's not a hell of a lot we can do.”

She shakes her head. “Well, we both know you're not going to stop flying, and we both know you won't push yourself when you think it's necessary, so that's out.”

You nod.

“So that means most of the options we have now suck.” She says, bluntly. Holding up a hand balled into a fist and then holding up her pinkie finger. “One, We accept that you're going to need regular... uh. Treatments. Of magic. From a witch.” She says.

“That thing Ice talked about?”

She nods. “Yeah, that. As agonizingly cute a love story that would make, it's really not practical over a long term without you having like four or five witches to do it. You're good, but you're not that good.”

You nod, and she holds up her ring finger. “Two, we accept that your talent is flawed and we just all work to accept the fact that one day you're going to push too hard and poof, no more Frank Bishop.” She stares at you for a second. “That ain't gonna happen.”

Her middle finger pops up. “Three, we start down a path no one's ever been down before.” She looks straight at you. “We start trying to teach you what you're doing, and how to control it better. That's iffy at best because male talents are so low key, compared to what we're used to. We'd basically be making it up as we went along, and I'm not even sure it would work.”

“Not to mention support for it would probably suck.” You say.

She shrugs. “Maybe, maybe not. I'm sure there's plenty of academies that would love to work with you and Merlin on this, instead of this shit.” She waves her hand around to indicate the castle. “But that's the catch, it's probably not something we could do with the war on.”

“Right.” You nod.
