walk beside me evermore

Who: Riza Elizabeth and anyone who wants to help (or needs help) with the whole technology thing
What: Not everyone is from a time and place with computers. Plus the library offers some great opportunities for research.
When: any day between 1/28 and 1/31
Where: the local library

Open: Pity the tech challenged
[If she was going to get a decent job, one that would help not only pay the bills but put her closer to her goals, she was going to have to rely on her previous skill sets. Somehow she doubted anyone had a use for a sniper which meant updating her office skills.

There was only one way to do that which meant she was going to put in as many hours as possible using the city's library branches. She'll get it eventually, but any help from those not likely to judge would always be appreciated.

Open: Information Gathering 101
[Not all of her time spent at the library is confined to the computers. Why waste a perfectly good resource of information?

The number of books was amazing, but those could be read at home. It's the magazines, both legit and tabloid varieties that have her attention most of the time.

Do people actually believe this stuff?

[She's almost certain it's 90% fake, but who knows.]

[After several days, Riza's learned enough that it's easy enough to blend into the usual crowd of people doing their thing at the library without looking out of place. She still comes to practice, fill out job applications, and scour the internet for information regarding a certain missing individual. All perfectly normal things if the activities of the others around her are to be taken into account.

It's almost too easy to find things. Internet fan sites and general publicity meant she didn't have to look very far before getting more information than she could have hoped for. Also, who kidnaps and brainwashes a person but leaves them with their real name?

Of course, she's not going to act on any of that just yet. She had enough experience with this kind of thing to know better. Even without Silver and Gold's warning, Riza knew they weren't in any position to move forward. She'd stay away until the time was right.

Of course, the best-laid plans oft go awry.

Info Gathering 101

[ 3 is looking an article about a giant eel like monster poking its head out of the ocean, summoned by Virgo music playing. ]

You gotta be squidding me! Is that related to the Great Zapfish?!

[ Someone in the library gives a harsh "SHHH!" to her exclamation, and Agent 3 makes an "oops" face. She continues much quieter and glances around to make sure no one saw that she was the one being loud. ]

The Great Zapfish and the littler Zapfish provide Inkopolis with its electricity. They're what the Octarians stole from us and what I had to get back.

They didn't mention anything about electricity... so it must not have evolved far enough yet.

[ Humans are part of her prehistoric past, so it makes sense that this creature might be too. ]

What are you looking for here?

[ She stands on the tips of her toes to see the article. ]

You're here for sharks with knives? Sounds like a chef.

[ Remember, she comes from a highly aquatic based world. It's a valid possibility. But then she reads more. ]

Roy Mustang? Oh! Do you know him back home?

[ It is likely that no one will. She idolizes Callie, after all. ]

... Important? Oh! Is he your boyfriend? Did they kidnap your boyfriend?

[ 3's is a 14 year old squid and a bit of a naive, idealist romantic. It takes a lot to keep herself from saying this above a whisper. ]

B-But... that shouldn't matter in love. You shouldn't let that stop you.

[ Riza might have touched on something close to her heart, given that she's a squad leader and has a crush on someone in the squad... ]

Being leader of a squad shouldn't matter! It's the squid you are, not your rank.

He'll remember you. That's why we're here, to bring them back and fix their heads. Your love will shine through the brainwashing.

[ She believes in you! And... that they are going to succeed in general. ]

[personal profile] woomy 2016-02-04 07:52 am (UTC)(link)
But I'm being serious... We'll get them back, and then the two of you can be together again.

[ Love isn't the main method of attack, but it couldn't hurt. ]

You're welcome. That's what teammates and friends are for.

[ She's got your back! And she'll probably end up with an autograph from Roy at the rate another thread is going. ]
