Marina's not interested in mobile suits or the training of using them, but she does have on important thing to go for - she's here for a pilot suit. Anything that will keep her alive if she's ejected into space in the middle of a battle, that'll keep her in one piece in the upper atmosphere at worst. She knows Seles can fly.

She knows it can go into a magical 'space' between worlds, and still move.

And Marina knows that she's way too paranoid about that kind of possibility to ignore it, so she shows up, looking around curiously as she pokes around the hangar. Marina cups her hands around her mouth. "Yoohoooo!"

Amy said she'd be here, and here she is, wearing what looks like a black and grey pilot's suit. She blinks as she hears Marina, and hurries over to her.

"Ah, Marina!" she exclaimed. "You're here for your suit, right?"
dragon_blossom: (Hundred yard stare)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-03 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
Awesome! And the pilot suit looks rad too. "Yes! Absolutely. The suit that will keep me from explosively decompressing."
feastorfamine: (what the heck is wrong with you?)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-03 07:22 pm (UTC)(link)
"... Yeah, that's generally the idea," Amy replied, motioning for Marina to follow. "I don't want your girlfriend hunting me down, and all."

"Do I have to get fitted? Pick out a size? Lemme at 'em." No chances will be taken.
feastorfamine: (39)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-03 07:42 pm (UTC)(link)
"... Actually, they all shift to fit the wearer," Amy replied. "At least, that's what they've done so far. I should warn you though, they're a bit different from what I'm wearing."

"Do they look as cool? It doesn't actually matter but looking cool would be nice." Come on make her look badass.

Amy reaches a large case, and pulls out one of the spare pilot suits along with a helmet. It's light blue and rather generic looking.

"Um... I'll let you be the judge of that?" she said.
dragon_blossom: (Star)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-04 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
Light blue and generic and not really cool... but it's alright. "...eh. It'll keep me alive."
feastorfamine: (disapproving look)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-04 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
"That's the most important thing," Amy said with a sigh. "Anyway, I'm... glad I could help, Marina."
dragon_blossom: (A master is out)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-04 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
"Thanks. If I can pay you back somehow... you know, some kinda favor? Something?" Eh? Eh?

"... when I finally open a restaurant, you and your girlfriend can come as patrons," she said. "How's that sound?"
dragon_blossom: (*wink*)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-04 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
"Hell yeah I can do that. You have a deal." Not like she wouldn't do it anyways so that works.
feastorfamine: (37)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-04 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
"Alright then," Amy said with a laugh. "Now... is there anything else I can help you with?"
dragon_blossom: (A master is out)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-04 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
"I don't think so, unless you've got some more tips for using these things in space." Or moving in space, or space space she might actually not even go to space for all she knows.
feastorfamine: (27)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-04 06:22 pm (UTC)(link)
"Unfortunately, I don't," Amy replied. "I have no idea how your 'machine' works, and all you can really do is make sure your suit stays on."
dragon_blossom: (*wink*)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-04 06:24 pm (UTC)(link)
"It barely works like a machine. I'll make sure I keep that on and ready though." And magically... not on until she needs. Because magical transformations.
feastorfamine: (happy go lucky)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-04 06:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Amy nodded. "Good," she said. "Though... I'm surprised it doesn't have a magical barrier or something for you to breathe in."

"I'm pretty sure it does, I just..." she trailed off, lowering her head a bit. "I wanna be safe if he gets damaged badly."
feastorfamine: (06)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-04 07:00 pm (UTC)(link)
"... Okay, that definitely makes sense," she said. "You have to prepare for whatever you can."
dragon_blossom: (Ready steady go)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-04 07:17 pm (UTC)(link)
"Seles even brought it up - so I know I'm not worrying about nothing." Definitely worrying about her dragon that she hasn't gotten to know very well yet.
feastorfamine: (when she smiles)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-04 07:24 pm (UTC)(link)
"... I see, well," Amy replied with a nod. "That'll do it."

A pause. "I made some snacks, if you want to eat anything before heading off on your way."
dragon_blossom: (A master is out)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-04 07:31 pm (UTC)(link)
"...really? What do you have?" Tone: shifted.
feastorfamine: (when she smiles)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-04 08:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Amy just chuckled. "What don't I have," she said, patting Marina on the shoulder. "Seriously, there should be something you like there."
dragon_blossom: (blushy nervous)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-05-04 08:08 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh man, just lemme at it, I'm actually kinda hungry right now."
feastorfamine: (Default)


[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-05 06:16 pm (UTC)(link)
That earned another laugh from Amy. "Trust me, you won't be when I'm through with you."
dragon_blossom: (*wink*)

Like doppel-Nathan is going to miss this, right? We're talking giant robots, here. What could be cooler? And with him picking up one of his original's most recent Echoes . . . well.

Upon arrival, he just stares up at the mobile suits in wonder, rocking back and forth on the balls of his feet. There's a huge grin on his face, and if he weren't trying to prove he could take this seriously, he would probably be jumping up and down. Giant. Robot. He gets to pilot a giant robot! This is the best thing ever.


His exuberant attitude hadn't been the most encouraging thing before this started, perhaps. The utter glee on his face hadn't spoken of someone you'd want to trust with a giant robot. Doppel-Nathan gives off the air that he'll either be incredibly irresponsible, or completely screw up.

But when it comes to the training proper . . . he seems to be handling it very well. Hell, if any of the others are having some trouble there, he may even be able to give them a couple of pointers.


As awesome as pilot training is, it's also hungry work. And so he can be found hanging out near the food during breaks, not being terribly picky about what he's eating. Why be picky? It's actually a point of sameness between him and his original. But that may be about where the sameness ends, because doppel-Nathan is incredibly chatty. If you're near the food, he will talk to you whether you want him to or not.

"I can't believe I get to do this, man. Isn't it the coolest?"
feastorfamine: (35)


[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-03 12:36 am (UTC)(link)
Of course Amy is near the food. Even if she's going to step into the role of super robot pilot, she's going to stay true to herself, which means preparing refreshment for her pilots.

She's surprised at how much she likes Nathan. She didn't expect him to take any of this serious, but he's doing a very good job so far, and actually adapting well to his machine. When he asks, she can't help but laugh.

"That it is," she said. "You've been doing very well, you know."
solvethepuzzle: (Pretend)

[personal profile] solvethepuzzle 2015-05-04 05:55 am (UTC)(link)
Hey, he promised he'd be good! It's either take it seriously and get a giant robot, or not take it seriously and have the giant robot taken away. He wants to keep one, damn it.

"See? I told you I'd be good at it!" Said in that same exuberant tone, and around a bite of food. What are table manners?
feastorfamine: (15)

[personal profile] feastorfamine 2015-05-04 06:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Amy stared, and sighed.

"Your ego needs a bit of work, though," she said, taking a small bite of her food and swallowing. "Also, I spent a lot of time on those snacks you're eating, so..."
solvethepuzzle: (Playful)

[personal profile] solvethepuzzle 2015-05-04 04:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Fe is absolutely right to be unsure, of course. 'Nathan' has been bouncy and excitable and borderline giggly when not in the suits. Even during the training he's been noticeably happy, if a little more subdued. He has to act calm in there or he might get the robot taken away. That would be tragic.

And of course he has to phrase things that way. When you're doing something cool, you shouldn't make it sound all stuffy and boring.

The incredulous look doesn't bother him; doppel-Nathan is nowhere near as self-conscious as his original. He does tilt his head a little bit at Fe, trying to figure out if he's seen him before. The kid looks kind of familiar, but doppel-Nathan doesn't have the best memory.

Nah, not quite clicking. Oh well. "Awesome as hell, you mean. You just get up in the air and . . . fwooom!" He waves one hand through the air to demonstrate.

This is probably not helping the impression he makes.

They're taking a break when Floweregg bounds over towards them form God-knows-where and sits down next to them.

"I remember your names." Or she is at least very sure that this is what this is.

Åsa made them lunch boxes and snacks and, well, the snacks are mostly edible? She's enjoying the sandwiches, anyway. And who knows, someone else might enjoy sardines and jam? Either way, it's nice to take a break and sit curled into Siiri's side and chat aimlessly. It's comfortable, more comfortable than being locked in a giant robot. At least she can't break anything (or anyone) out here.

She sits up a little when Floweregg bounds over and smiles at her, opening her arms to invite her into her lap. "How did you remember that?"

"I saw the lights over London on Youtube."

Siiri redirects her attention from looking down at Åsa and trying to not let too many of her tastebuds come into contact with the atrocity that her fiancée created while still looking like she really enjoys them (she enjoys eating things that Åsa made. Just... not because they're tasty but because Åsa made them).

"What are they?"

Floweregg yips excitedly and tries to look all regal and impressive (which is hard when you are a tiny fluffy puppy). ...She kind of fails. A lot. "Sweden and Finland. You called each other that."
