"Yeah. I don't understand them either but it's less... frustrating? It is reasonably likely that there's no profitable communication to be had with them. Scion is doing, you know, good things, twenty-four seven, but he doesn't prioritize and he doesn't work efficiently."

Permalink

"Yeah. I do wonder why he doesn't- I mean, he talked that one time he said his name, why did he never say anything else after that?"

Permalink

"I don't know."

Permalink

Sigh. "What annoys me or disheartens me the most is that... he doesn't kill them. I mean, if he could, wouldn't he? Does that mean not even he can?"

Permalink

"It doesn't look like he tries. It looks like he hits them enough that they'll leave, and then he doesn't chase them or fire at them as they go, or anything."

Permalink

"That may be because he knows he can't. But on the other hand, the more hurt they are, the longer it takes for them to appear again..."

Permalink

Burgers, om nom. "Or maybe something bad would happen that we don't know about if they died, but he's never had the courtesy to say..."

Permalink

"Maybe he's too busy rescuing kittens from trees or something."

Permalink

"The thought has crossed my mind that it might be a net positive if cats went extinct."

She cracks up.
Permalink

"He spends so much time on cats! It's infuriating!"

Permalink

Nope. Giggling too much.

Lorica snorts and eats her burgers.

The giggling subsides. "Yes, he does indeed. It's stupid, what the duck is even going on in his head?"

Permalink

"Couldn't begin to tell you."

Permalink

"...what if I made a Scion-copy?"

Permalink





"Well, nobody'd expect him to massacre innocents. Holy shit, why didn't I think of that?"
Permalink

"But wait, don't people kinda keep track of where Scion is all the time? Would they freak out if he started showing up in two places at the same time?"

Permalink

"I mean, sure. The people who track that, would notice. But most people aren't watching that at an Endbringer fight."

Permalink

"I meant more like the- aftermath? As in, what will happen to people's expectations after a fight in which a Scion-copy appears simultaneously with the Scion being somewhere else."

Permalink

"I mean - does it matter how nearby the people not-expecting a thing are? There's certainly dozens of people monitoring what Scion sightings there have been at any given time, but they aren't going to be on site at an Endbringer fight, by and large."

Permalink

"I'm... not sure, actually?"

Permalink
"Okay, like... no one except optionally you and me thinks Scion would be in this room. It's way less likely as a class of possibilities than any Endbringer fight, and certainly is incompatible with wherever he is right now -"

"Thailand," says the base station bot.

"- thank you, so, gimme a Scion."

Well, that's a Scion alright. She blinks at him.

"...What can Scion and pretty much only Scion do besides put the hurt on Endbringers..."
