15th jump;

CHARACTERS: any and all
LOCATION: Gravity Couches and beyond
WARNINGS: maybe some swearing, or even some violence, and more than likely some implied (and possibly explicit) nakedness.
SUMMARY: Another month, another jump, another round of new faces.
NOTES: Keeping up with the tradition and copy pasted like always from the last one


You wake up in darkness.



There's a breathing tube jammed down your trachea, and you're suspended in a tube of clear blue fluid. Upon registering your level of consciousness, the gravity couch drains the fluid surrounding you and retracts the breathing apparatus; the doors in front of you open, and you're deposited on the floor of a stark, sterile medical bay.

You are not alone.



There are others who have come before you, others who are awakening beside you. Some may be familiar to you, perhaps even friends. Others have much less amiable plans. Some are merely alien and inexplicable, but there are always those who might mean you harm.

After you catch your breath and your vision returns, you notice a number on the inside of your forearm. Maybe it's a familiar number. Maybe it means something. Maybe it's just a number. But the number—completely unique to you—is a tattoo, and it does not come off.

If you enter the room adjacent to the medbay, you will find a small locker with your number on it, surrounded by rows upon rows of identical lockers. Inside, you will find a few of your personal items, a communications device, and a ship's uniform in your exact size. The comms device is fully powered and connects directly to the ship's network; it's your only means of communication beyond physical conversation. Upon turning the device on, a neutral, automated voice will say, "Please take the blue lift to the passenger quarters." Any other attempts at communicating with the rest of the network are met only with static.

This is your welcome party.

The worst part isn't the waking up in a new, completely random place. Nor was the realization that he had some kind of air intake/outtake system now that, if he forgot to run it as a primary protocol, caused very weird and unpleasant sensations in his core processors.

No, the worst thing was the legs.

He sort of flopped his way out of the tube and has since just been flopping around on the floor in front of it. He has more limbs now and it's virtually impossible to control them. The arms are one thing--he's used to arms!--but the legs are another thing entirely. Where are his treads? Where are his wheels and servos and bearings? No matter what he does, he can't make the new lower appendages move him anywhere. His vocalizer is in a sorry state as well. The only sounds he can make are weird whining and mumbling sounds.

He knows he's human now. He's seen humans after all, plenty of them, though he's decidedly thinner than the ones he's used to. How his processors have been transferred into a human is beyond him and not a primary concern right now. Right now he needs to figure out how to move.

And he needs to find Eve. Where in the world is she?

Despite the fact that he'd been in almost the exact same situation once upon a time, Wheatley is decidedly terrible at taking that information and applying it outside of himself--all he sees is an especially clumsy human, not quite entertaining the possibility that this guy might not have had legs an hour ago.

So when Wall-E falls over himself right in his general vicinity, Wheatley sees it as more of an annoyance than anything, sighing heavily and taking on the begrudging responsibility of getting this new arrival a towel.

"Easy, mate. One foot in front of the other. Have a little rest if you need to--if you need to think on it, there's no rush. Should all come back to you in a minute or so."
hellowall_e: (wall-weh)

[personal profile] hellowall_e 2013-02-08 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh! A person! A human! Also a lot thinner than usual. What's up with that? Never mind that now! Maybe this human can help him! What was the word for when you needed assistance?

Well, first of all he needs to actually roll over so he can look up at this guy. This involves some complex maneuvering and general flopping around.

Oh good, now he can see the human! Now what was that word?

"Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb!"
testgasm: (TESTING!!)

[personal profile] testgasm 2013-02-09 05:35 am (UTC)(link)
He raises both his eyebrows at that, trying to figure out just what, exactly, is going on.

"Sorry, didn't quite--didn't quite catch that. Just--just take it slow, okay? Plenty of time to get your bearings."

Though it occurs to him that he should perhaps attempt to help this poor person onto his feet, Wheatley has never been particularly good at the whole touching thing. He hovers awkwardly above Wall-E, as if not sure where to put his hands or how to help.

"Here, I'll start. I'm Wheatley. Who are--what's your name?"
hellowall_e: (wall-hmm)

[personal profile] hellowall_e 2013-02-09 05:46 am (UTC)(link)
"Wwww?" He blinks up at the human. Blinking is a new thing too, but like the air intake/outtake system, it seems to be mostly automatic. Good thing, too! As soon as he realized he was doing it, he'd stopped, and that had caused his optics to go all funny.

Name! He knows what names are! Names are what you call yourself. Like how he is WALL-E, and Eve is Eve. Is this person saying that his name is...

"Wwwwwwwwwww! Eeeeeeeeee? Eeeeeee."

W-ee-ee, sure, that's a good enough start. Now he just needs to manage his own name! He figures that the more he learns about this new vocalizer, the easier it will be to actually use it.

"Ww. Wwwwwwwwwww. Aaaaaaaaaa. Lllllllll-lllllll. Wwwwaaaa. Eeee! Wwww-aaaaaaa."

This is a lot harder than he thought it would be.

[personal profile] theshabbiestofmen 2013-02-08 10:20 pm (UTC)(link)
"Er--"

Remus tilts his head as he watches the strange person flop around. Should he help? He's experienced nausea himself while stumbling out of the pods, and he's heard disorientation isn't uncommon-- but this goes rather beyond disorientation.

Tentatively he edges closer, trying to meet the other's eyes. "Do you need help?"
hellowall_e: (wall-WAH)

[personal profile] hellowall_e 2013-02-08 10:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Another person! Oh, he's saved! If--if he could only just--turn over a little to face him--

He sort of rolls around a bit, kicks at the floor, rotates slightly, ends up with one arm trapped under the rest of him which causes more unpleasant sensations and elicits a whine from his strange new vocalizer, and then finally he sort of flops to one side so that he's mostly on his back looking up at the stranger. Some more wiggling manages to get his arm unpinned.

"Blbbbbbb! Blb blb blbbbblblbbblbbllblbb! Fbbbb."
theshabbiestofmen: (Fear ☾Looming trouble ahead--!)

[personal profile] theshabbiestofmen 2013-02-08 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
He ought to just leave him. That's what the more self-preserving instincts of Remus say; he ought to just leave him and save himself from this obvious madman. The nicer, more caring bits of him overrule that and make him kneel next to the man, one hand awkwardly going to his shoulder.

"I'll take that as a yes," he says gently, and tries for what turns out to be a strained sort of a smile. "Are you-- look, you don't have to talk if you don't want to. Let's try and help you sit up, shall we?" Gently he takes his other shoulder and begins lifting his torso.
hellowall_e: (wall-ooh)

[personal profile] hellowall_e 2013-02-09 02:37 am (UTC)(link)
"Thhhbbb!" He says in surprise because what is this new sensation?! The man is touching him but it doesn't feel at all like metal on metal! He has no idea what that stuff humans have on the outside is called but boy does it pick up a lot of strange sensations.

He's moving! The man is lifting him! Sort of. He ends up...sort of upright, but it's difficult to stay that way. It's a bit like boxing himself up; it feels smaller when he's like this, somehow.

He remembers his hands and figures that maybe he can use them to brace himself upright. Hey, it works. He stares up at the human with wide eyes.

"Eeeeee!"

godofthemachine: (Whoa that's some freaky shit)

[personal profile] godofthemachine 2013-02-09 04:55 am (UTC)(link)
AM usually liked to look for new AIs aboard this ship. It could help him figure out how he had acquired this body, and AIs were the only ones aboard the ship who had any hope of understanding him. Not that he didn't have humans to manipulate, but he would be more willing to "ally" with the AIs. They had more potential.

When AM saw this new person stumble out of the pod, unable to work his legs, he was almost positive this was an AI. The new AIs always had a peculiarity that was easy to spot, at least for AM, as he had been at that point himself. Even now after nearly a year in this form, he still carried himself with a peculiar stiffness, able to mostly blend in with the human population but.... not quite.

His interest was piqued upon seeing this naked man fall out of the pod, so he stood by the man's wretched form, making no moves to help him up. Instead, he simply stared down at him and spoke. "Your first time in a human form, I assume."
hellowall_e: (Default)

[personal profile] hellowall_e 2013-02-09 05:09 am (UTC)(link)
Oh! A human! There sure are a lot of humans here. Including WALL-E himself, it seems. Which is all very strange an is going to need a lot of thinking about. But later! First he has to figure out the basics. Maybe this human can help him?

"Wwwwwwwww!"

If only it wasn't so hard to speak!
godofthemachine: (Wait so what you're saying is--)

[personal profile] godofthemachine 2013-02-10 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
While AM knew the difficulty of trying to work the vocal cords for the first time, he didn't expect the new recruit to take that long to adjust. Still, AM could be patient. After all, he remembered what it was like, waking up as a human and realizing his most glorious dream and worst nightmare at the same time. Trying to work the muscles, trying to speak... It was difficult, but seemed almost natural with the body.

"Can't speak? Hmph. Keep trying."

He regarded the man with a curiosity, eyes slightly wide and lips in a slight pout as he tried to figure him out.

After the jump, it's still the same. No new memories, no new scars or traumas. To say that Rey is relieved is actually putting it mildly. She can actually say it's good to come out with relatively no event.

That said, she has no trouble with her cycles. She also didn't wake up to pain this time, so that's definitely a plus all around.

At some point, however, she takes notice to what appears to be a newcomer. Not because she doesn't recognize him (although that's a fair description as well), but because of his...

Well.

"Problems?" Rey simply inquires to the strange guy who clearly appears to be having them.

He's on his side at this point and sort of kicking himself in wide circles on the floor, making humming sounds occasionally. He thinks he's almost got it. I mean, at least he's moving. He's not exactly going anywhere, but at least things are happening!

Oh! Another human! There sure are a lot of humans around.

[personal profile] shoyu 2013-02-09 07:01 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. Well. This -- is new. Soysauce has been through a few jumps now, and he's used to seeing people look a little distressed, a little confused right after falling out of those gravity couches. But now there's -- a young man. On the floor. Flailing around a little bit. Making strange noises. Is he injured?

Soysauce gives a small, confused cant of the head before hastily wrapping a towel around his waist. Shaking the thickest globs of stasis fluid out of his face before crouching down next to where WALL-E is and carefully laying a hand on his shoulder.

"Ah -- sir? Do you need any help getting to the medical bay?"
hellowall_e: (wall-hmm)

it ate my response :c

[personal profile] hellowall_e 2013-02-09 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
There really are a lot of humans around, and come to think of it, WALL-E hasn't seen any actual robots around. Maybe they're all somewhere else? The humans all look so strange, too, smaller and thinner than the ones he's used to. Maybe they're all malfunctioning?

Still, it's a human, and he's talking about help! Yes, help is good. WALL-E doesn't know what a medical bay is, but it must have something to do with help.

"Www-aaallll-ee!" At least he can say his name by now.
shoyu: (Default)

oohhhh nooooo dreamwidth, stop that :(

[personal profile] shoyu 2013-02-09 10:08 pm (UTC)(link)
"Wwwaaallee. Wally. -- Wally?" He has to repeat that drawn-out name a few times before it clicks, and Soysauce smiles. "Is that your name? Mister Wally? It's a pleasure to meet you!"

To his credit, Soysauce takes this whole incident into stride pretty well -- pretending this is all perfectly normal as he carefully props WALL-E up. Maybe he can help the guy stand?

"Please call me Soysauce! Unfortunate that we have to meet under these distressing circumstances, but it's a pleasure regardless. Are you quite alright?"

So this guy was just...lying there.

Well, yeah, Ryan could understand that. After coming out of some godforesaken tube with a thing stuck down your throat, anyone would be a little in shock, right? But this guy had a different kind of look on his face. One that Ryan really couldn't put his finger on. But it was different, and a little alarming. Not to mention that he was literally just flopping around on the floor. Ryan was almost reminded of a fish.

And he kept making funny noises. Like he couldn't speak or something like that.
Was it possible for something from those tubes to get stuck in your lungs?

As nervous as this guy made Ryan feel (especially when he thought about a piece of equipment getting stuck in your lungs. jesus christ) he approached the little guy and knelt down, offering him the best smile that said 'hi, i'm totally not afraid of anything right now'. "Are you okay?"

He's glad the human around here are so friendly and helpful! They keep coming over to talk to him and help him and stuff. It's very nice!

He looks up at the new human, or at least tries to. He has to sort of roll over first, which turns instead to him just sort of rotating on his side until the human is in his field of vision.

"Vbbbbbb? Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Ohhhhhhh. Aaaaaaaaaaaaa. Ohhhhh-aaaaaa?"

[personal profile] sugarpills 2013-02-10 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay. He knew this guy wasn't trying to be scary, but he was kind of scary.

Ryan didn't know much about robots on the Tranquility, other than there were a few of them running around, and that they were AI's or something like that. He didn't know anything about them getting a new body, or having to learn how to move with it. For all he knew, this guy was in the middle of a seizure or a stroke or something.

And he wasn't a med-school kind of guy, either.

"Okay. Umm..." So the guy couldn't talk. But he seemed aware, at least. When he called to the guy, he tried to turn over. Why wasn't anyone else helping with him...? "Here, I'll help you turn over. Hold on..."

He helped to flip the man onto his back. Okay. They taught you this kind of thing in high school- what was it again? Airway, breathing, circulation? ABC's? Ryan placed a hand by his shoulder. "Are you okay?" Maybe he didn't hear him the first time...
