[The network has rebooted, and with it the translation systems--everything is in working order once more.

The following files have appeared, apparently by accident, on the network:]

[These files will be available for two hours before being deleted, although those with particularly good computer skills will be able to find the deleted files again.]

[You better believe he snatches up that mic as fast as can be, son.]

Test subject? This Ruana person I've been hearing about was a test subject?

I know that well enough. Who was experimenting on her? Why?

Is the Tower sentient? Or is there someone else in charge of Ruana that we don't know about?

[He's so curious OH MY GOD.]

[He recalls his conversation with Dax, and sets his mouth into a hard line.]

Hundreds of years, correct?

[Okay. He's done experiments before (including ones eerily similar to that walking experiment, by the sound of it). What can he ask that will get the most information out of this obviously cryptic person..?]

They were trying to make Ruana - you - walk, weren't they? What went wrong?

[A beat.]

Was it your fault?

[He bites his lip to keep from smiling. It doesn't work.]

Why are you showing us this? If it was an accident, why answer our questions?

[He's quiet for a moment.]

The little boy, the one in the control room. Is he like you?

That did not answer my-!

[Deep breaths, Richtofen. Deep breaths.]

...Is he as strong as you are? Does he have the potential to be?

[personal profile] doctor_dismemberment 2012-11-25 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
I see. And you don't feel threatened by him at all? You're not worried that you might end up like the ones who died before you?

[His hands, braced on either side of the terminal, tighten. The leather of his gloves squeak.]

Because he has to, or because he wants to?

That- You- I have had it with all of this cryptic nonsense!

[He slams his hat off and runs a hand through his hair, trying and failing to take some more deep breaths. There's so much he wants to know, but everything she says just raises more questions, and he's stuck here as a test subject to a test subject and the voices won't shut up why won't they shut up please please please please please-]

Damn it! [The hand he'd run through his hair moves to gripping his head. He looks to be in pain.] Be quiet, be quiet, I can't kill her, I can't kill text on a screen, I'm through with you!

[He turns and stomps away from the terminal, without even turning the feed off.]
