[Do you think we could -- convince them to let me treat him?]

Permalink

Lan hums thoughtfully. [If we approached them right. Worded it right. Probably.]

Permalink

 

[He could use it,] Anikyu replies, softly, tucking herself closer against him.

Permalink

[-Yeah. Yeah, probably. I-] he tightens his grip, manages to give a helpless little shrug.

Permalink


[You're not medically trained,] Anikyu says, soothingly. [And I don't doubt you've been getting him as much food as you can. And -- I assume you've tried to take over his care and I don't know why that failed but -- ]

Permalink

[They didn't want just one person handling it. Don't know why.]

Permalink

[...they might think two is too few as well,] she says, thoughtfully, [and even if they did not we would likely need me working with him for a while first, but -- that is a way I can help anyway, and I want to -- ]

Permalink

[Better than what's going on at the moment...]

Permalink

Anikyu wraps another pair of arms around him.

Permalink

He squints down at her. [Exactly how many pairs of arms can you get out of that morph?]

Permalink

[Depends on how thin I make them,] she replies, [and how much other body mass I need.]

Permalink

[Handy.] Beat. [Pun not intended but whole-heartedly endorsed.]

Permalink

Anikyu seems a little more relaxed; she sends him vague amusement.

Permalink

Good. Well. He'll just sit and continue snuggling her for a while.

Permalink

Eventually though, they're probably going to have to move, and Lan needs to start trying to figure out how to persuade the leadership to add Anikyu to the roster for looking after Glint. (And given Lan has set his mind to it, there's a reasonable chance he's going to succeed.)

Permalink

And Anikyu continues to give the impression of a dilligent, dedicated new member.

(There are notably less outages after she rewires all the common area light fixtures.)

Permalink

(A fact that is very appreciated.)

It takes a little time, but in a relatively short space thereof, Lan has an answer - and it's the answer he wants, or will at least settle for, for now.

[They're willing to let you see to Glint,] he informs Anikyu.

Permalink

[When?] she replies, immediately, sliding over to hug him.

Permalink

[They're adding you to the roster for looking after him...pretty immediately, and it means Kay can stop, which she'll be relieved about, so today?]

Permalink

Ankh giggles, weakly, over their comms. [You got her to help you argue for it,] she observes.

Permalink

And then, more seriously, [I already fabbed up the medical supplies, so -- that's good.]

Permalink

Lan nods, squeezing her gently. [Never let it be said I don't use my resources,] he agrees. [Mind if I come with? I- I know you'll look after him. Just.]

Permalink

[As long as -- you can play it off as -- helping me learn -- of course. I -- think he would find that reassuring?]

Permalink

[I can figure out an excuse. They don't watch me...too closely.]

Permalink

She squeezes him.
