okay so there’s shepard’s driving
and then there’s shepard’s driving
I believe the majority of this can be attributed to the troublesome Mako since I have driven other vehicles without defying the laws of physics.
"Then it would likely be to your benefit to determine what happened that week. I am curious. Would you be willing to share what you remember?"
"I remember vague impressions of being calm and anxious at other times. I am afraid that is all."
"Perhaps. Are you able to intentionally remove memories?"
"I can only remember one instance of manipulating memory but it included a black box. I am fairly certain I do not have such a thing."
"I do not make it common knowledge that I remember what happened while I was a cat, but I find it quite surprising how far people, humans and mecha alike, will go to keep a cat content."
"Everything is recorded. If you wish to know what happened that week, you can find records in the archive."
"I have heard as such; however, my only memories concerning them are strays." They weren’t particularly keen on socializing with each other at the time. She wasn’t much for pets anyway. Except for maybe fish.
"It is a likely a good idea to investigate what happens in my times of memory lapse. Thank you."
"Oh yes, robotic feline as well. Before I met you, approximately an Earth year ago, I was turned into a house cat."
Might be a small twitch at the memory of what happened just before that particular change.
"I think that was the most fascinating. No other change has affected my ability to think and remember like that one did."
"Ah. That was how I felt while I was a varren. Oddly simplistic minded events, I believe I tore up one of the couches and played fetch with my sniper. Curious events." She paused a moment to think. "Although I cannot remember much of anything while I was synthetic either."
"Human, plastic miniature, cat, sea foam, an old frame are what I can recall. What all have you been turned into?"
"Oh how silly of me to forget the feline! Sea foam is a particularly obscure thing… ah, my record is mostly just organic aliens. Krogan, turian, a quarian, and a varren. That last one is not sapient. Of course there was the AIU and a rather peculiar incident of an elephant."
"Oh? Were the grey-faces a thing where you are from?"
"Yes, mostly just curious little things though, my stint as a synthetic was not my first ‘out of body experience’. Many actually, not quite as much as some people around me. You though, I’ve only seen as yourself, a human and in a previous frame so far."
askmamashep replied to your post:How is giving out a detail like if you have a belly button or not really that specific? …Some people simply believe themselves entitled to information they deem harmless. Regardless of the personal boundaries of the other party.
"I have noticed, at least when given a veil to hide behind. Come sit with me. I would rather not have to shout to carry a conversation."
She’s going to send over a mock salute before doing as asked. Man has a point. If they’re going to chat, might as well do it comfortably. “I have had the fortune of having to deal with only a faction of such inane activity.”
"You would have made a decent Decepticon."
"Oh? I suppose you would know better than I on that. I am only a soldier. Was."
