Because there are so many fewer diversions on this station than on the previous one, Aegis takes to those that are offered with more of an open mind than she might have done before. For instance, she stays after personal combat sometimes, to watch Sue sparring with Howlett. Now and then she takes a turn herself. Today she's just supervising.
"You're okay, you're okay," she murmurs, "or you'll be okay, it'll be okay."
"You'll be okay," she repeats. "You're not as breakable as that guy thinks you are and you'll be okay."

"Yeah, but - could I be doing it better?"
"Well - if you think of anything - lemme know." Cuddles.
