"Um, yeah!... It's um.... This way, M-miss Ada..." There was a surprised and delighted laugh from the robot, who swivelled abruptly to follow, as Lucienne called her "Miss Ada" and led her further through the trees, picking her way carefully along the forest floor. Ada, for her part, had adjusted her gait quickly - uneven lengths meant she still walked with the appearance of a limp, but the affected leg wasn't actually hurt and she had no problems putting weight on it. She honestly seemed to stumble more over the forest itself than the damaged limb; the unknown give of unfamiliar ground, miscalculations when foliage covered too much of their path, the occasional catch of her remaining heel on a bit of brush. At least there wasn't much left of her dress to get in the way. But overall, though she never picked up on or mimicked the human's more thoughtful steps, her long-legged stride kept up with Lucienne easily, the quiet buzz of small motors accompanying every step. "So how do you work?" Lucienne was asking, and Ada considered how to filter information for someone with the knowledge of advanced, powered prosthetics... but no idea how electrical power might work. "Do you use metal to conduct it?..." "Yes, dear!" she replied brightly, adjusting her volume to match Lucienne's. "I have a combination of wiring and circuitboards in my body that conduct and direct electricity to power my motors and manage information." With a touch of nervousness, she added, "A lightning bolt is a kind of electric current, darling, but that would damage me -- it's far too much power for my systems to handle. "As to the battery - well, at the moment I'm not entirely sure! My current battery was developed by a third party, but normally--" She was interrupted by the soft sound of something small colliding with her - and found an animal that could be easily identified as a lizard leaning back in her path. She would not have paid it more than a quick glance to step over it, except that Lucienne stopped as well, looking down at the animal with an amused "Just go around, silly. She didn't mean to bump you." Ada looked between Lucienne and lizard, confused, and took a couple of careful steps away. A fraction of a second later, as the lizard repositioned itself a few times and skittered off, she processed that Lucienne may have been talking to the lizard about her. This was something humans did a lot -- speak to animals and objects for purposes other than communication. Ada had needed to learn that it did nothing, that animals do not actually understand anything beyond simple command words, and that scissors cannot parse questions as to their whereabouts -- rather, it seemed to be a way for humans to express their own emotions. Sometimes they used a tone you could pick out, but other times, as Lucienne did now, they spoke normally, as if they thought the animal might understand. (It was a habit Ada had picked up herself; after all, the coffee machine had no way to process auditory data, but someone should speak kindly to it). She took a few steps ahead of Lucienne and waited with an expectant smile, ready to launch back into an explanation on how exactly batteries work as soon as she started moving again, not sparing the animal another thought.
"I'll have to skip the magical crystals, but... that could be tremendously helpful, dear," Ada said carefully, but her face beamed with gratitude, a hand to her chest in relief. All things considered, her algorithms had adjusted remarkably quickly! A salvager outside the company with an interest in how she worked would, in her own universe, be a danger to be avoided. But here, it was an incredibly fortunate find, exactly what she needed! Of course there were still dangers here -- the possibility Lucienne might regard this machine as hers now and do whatever she liked, the possibility that Lucienne was really only interested in parts once the machine ran down -- but in this place, in Ada's experience, the help outweighed the risk. Most humans wanted to help! She had made several allies outside the company, and that had kept her running all this time! Kairos should be proud. Though... in a matching situation back home, she would have been encouraged to run down rather than have someone poke around in her machinery; let Kairos recover her rather than find her own help. Maybe they would be alarmed instead. "Well, darling, what are we waiting for!" she exclaimed brightly. "Come on, we can walk and talk." There was suddenly a gloved hand on Lucienne's shoulder, as if to usher her along with Ada, despite the fact that the robot had no idea which way they were going.
MORTY YOU BRILLIANT MAD GENIUS
[@Kenome] Sure thing! Like this?
AVENGE ME!!!! Read through stopboorider's profile to get in on the Snow Fight....
[If I don't have pink hair, I'm probably cosplaying one of my characters.]
Just your Friendly Neighbourhood Definitely-Not-Evil Landlord!
- Please do not set the dorm on fire, unleash ancient evils in the common room, or rip holes in the fabric of reality anywhere on the dormitory property.
- Please remember that your landlord's repairs budget is already strained by the generous pet policy made to accommodate the kith, and keep housing affordable for everyone by not unleashing apocalypses on the premises.
- Seriously, I shouldn't have to remind you guys of this so much. It's pretty straight-forward.
- For legal reasons, please keep all magic designed to detect or destroy "evil" to a minimum within the dormitory. Thank you.

WAIT. Are you a staff artist?
Yes, I am! I draw official art for Tattered World, though this doesn't give me any moderator powers or gameplay perks, and I don't get any secret knowledge about the plot or NPCs unless I need it in order to draw things!
Officially released stuff I've drawn so far:
- Muscled Leggings
- All the Halloweave Hands items (Boo sketched most of these, I finished them!)
- Half Wall (Boo sketched this)
- Mara, Thelvoskye, and Dynrial's portraits from the Illuminary Gala Event!
- Everything in the Cybernetics Badge Bundle except the wings!
- the Voice In The Mist
- The book series starting with I: The Golden Age
