Bot Seeks Bot For The End Of The World

Who: Rock, Zero, anyone who wants to show up
What: Standing on the roof staring dramatically is the natural state of robots
Where: Whatever tall rooftop managed to survive the Colossus
When: Wednesday, November 11



It felt like all hope was gone, or vanishing fast. The moon got closer to the ground every day, and even now it hung ominously in the sky. Time was running out. And Rock felt like perhaps this time, it was the end... He stood on the roof, watching the sky, hands clenching and unclenching as he tried to think of something, ANYTHING, he could do that would help. He was so distracted he wouldn't notice if anyone decided to come join him.

Did someone say staring at the sky?


Cyrus had been wandering the area, hoping to regain a sense of motivation. Well, hope was the wrong word. He believed it necessary. The fate of all things was in his hands, after all, and if he had insufficient drive to save it...

The sky had always fascinated him, as far back as he could remember. The distance, the utter smallness against it, the uncertainty of perception...

Oh, someone else was there.

But Cyrus said nothing. Certainly he saw the other person, but it didn't matter.

Rather, he said nothing to anyone but himself.

"...this land will fall. That is a near certainty. They would rather perish than follow into salvation." His voice was barely above a whisper, and would be nearly silent to anyone who didnt have some sort of super, possibly robotic, hearing. "...but I cannot lead them. I must accept that. Perhaps it is my failure."

Oh, someone else was there. Cyrus turned.

Heh. Even the robot could process emotion.

"I have looked at things entirely logically. I have failed too many times. While I believe that my plan has been entirely correct and is capable of success, it cannot be accomplished by my hand."

There was no regret, no sorrow to his voice, and no liberation either. Simply distance.

Was it possible to miss the heavy clanking of another's robot's footsteps? If so, then Rock may have been surprised when he suddenly noticed Zero standing beside him.

He understood the emotions going through Rock right now - they were the same ones that X often felt, after all. But he wasn't X, and as for Zero himself, well... he wasn't quite the same Zero he used to be either. What would he normally be telling X right now?

Well, maybe it didn't have to be as complicated as that. What did Zero want to say?

"...It's going to be okay."

"Something apocalyptic falling from the sky... at least twice. But nothing as large as a moon," Zero muttered. He went quiet as he glanced up at the massive shape descending upon them as well, with an expression still steeled in stoicism. If he was afraid, then he wasn't showing it. It was hard to really feel angry, if he was being honest - there was no villain behind this all, unless you could call the earth itself your enemy.

"Eurasia. Ragnarok... either one of those would've wiped out humanity on impact. I was helpless on my own," he continued. "It was only with the help of everyone that we put together our resources to stop the collision."
awakeningwill: (lock and loaded)

"Not every problem can be solved that way," he said with an air of experience.

"But we've found the door. We know the keys we likely need to open it. It's more than nothing," said Zero. While he wasn't sure about his ability to be reassuring, he knew those statements to be pure fact, so he could speak them with confidence.

"Oh. Hi."

Skull Kid didn't expect to find anybody up here. He had kind of wanted to be alone, but now that his roommate was in the alone spot, he felt like maybe talking to somebody would be better.
drawin_on_trees: (I didn't do it)

[personal profile] drawin_on_trees 2015-11-20 05:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Skull Kid scuffled his feet on the ground a little. "Iunno. Didn't wanna just sit in the room and stuff. Wanted to find a place to go and think about stuff."
drawin_on_trees: (Stare)

[personal profile] drawin_on_trees 2015-11-22 04:15 am (UTC)(link)
"Um..." Skull Kid found himself not wanting to clam up for once. After confessing everything to Gordon and not having his life ruined immediately, talking to people didn't seem quite so scary anymore.

"I'm kinda scared is all."

...Was that Rock up there on the roof? Standing dramatically on the edge, staring up at the moon hanging overhead. Yeah, that's definitely him.

Fefnir's pretty sure he can guess what he's thinking about. Which means he might need someone to talk to. Which... isn't something that Fefnir's really cut out for, but. Right about now, in a situation like, this, it's all he can do.

Might as well head up to the roof, then. He's not going to take the stairs or anything- it's a lot easier to just jump up there in a single bound, and then step towards him. "Hey. You worried about what's going to happen?"
fightingfeffers: (Ultimate blank stare)

[personal profile] fightingfeffers 2015-11-21 08:50 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah. I know the feeling." Fefnir joins Rock in turning up to the sky, just... glaring up at the moon. "In a situation like this, though, fighters like us... There's nothing we CAN do about it. This isn't an enemy our weapons can do anything against."

Rock was a fighter, after all. He might not have the same passion for it that Fefnir does, but he still made the choice to stand up and protect people. It was something they had in common, which is why he has a good idea of how Rock's feeling about this. So it might be something he can help with.
fightingfeffers: (You bore me)

[personal profile] fightingfeffers 2015-11-24 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
Fefnir thinks about it for a bit, before responding. He's faced plenty of foes, some of them incredibly strong, like Zero or Omega. None of them seemed like things that couldn't be taken down, though. Really, there's only one thing that comes to mind.

"Yeah, sort of. It wasn't a fight or anything, but yeah. I used to be tasked with trying to clean up the earth and making it livable again. When trying to make a dead world bloom didn't exactly work out, though, I was converted into a combat reploid. Later, humanity just settled for synthetic plants and forests instead, and found other ways to get food, and sustain themselves."

"This isn't quite the same thing, but still. It's what we're fighting, and protecting people for. So they can find solutions to the problems we can't solve with our weapons." And, well, because he loves to fight, but he's trying to cheer the kid up here. And besides, that's probably in line with why the kid's doing it, and it sounds like something Harpuia might've said too.

[Lucca... is not a robot, despite all allusions to the contrary with that helmet of hers. However, that didn't stop her from gravitating to the highest point in the school herself to stare up at the moon.]

[She certainly wasn't alone; maybe it's a human fascination with looming oblivion, that made them stare as if hoping it would realize the atrocity it's about to commit, and head back of its own accord.]

[Who can say? In any case, if she's going to be preoccupied with celestial doom, she'd rather be up there. With Rock and his friends.]
tempus_fixit: (Given Her All...)

[personal profile] tempus_fixit 2015-11-29 06:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[She stands here for a second, and then hugs back just as mightily.]

Yeah... m' okay. What about you?

[Technically Rock would probably survive the impact, somehow. But that wasn't what she really meant.]
tempus_fixit: (Are you sure?)

[personal profile] tempus_fixit 2015-11-29 07:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah. You're a real worrybot. [She adds with a small chuckle of her own. She doesn't let go for a while; she knows how to cast protection spells all over the place, and yet they wouldn't give her the sense of safety that she feels while they're in each others' arms.]

... ...Hey, Rock? I was, I was wondering something.
