Welcome to the Program

Good Morning, Champions. In the interest of maintaining healthy sleep patterns, a day/night cycle is in effect. Your presence is expected in the cafeteria in exactly one hour.

[The voice comes through not a large speaker, but through the device that's attached to each Champion's arm. Further investigation of the features of the device will reveal a list of profiles, a mini-map, and a list of rules. The hallways are shiny white and silver, with running lights along the floor and lights on the ceiling, and at the junction of the hallways is a sign with a knife and fork icon and an arrow pointing down the hall.

Welcome to the Excellence Program, Champions. Time to get to know your teammates.]

I think so. This doesn't look like where he is, but it has to be.

[Now that she gets a better look at her, though, ow.]

You're hurt.
refusedtoleave: (I can do this)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-12 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Why's that? If you have any idea where we are you should say so...

[She grimaces again when she rubs at the mark.]

They had to knock me unconscious to bring me here didn't they?

There's electric lighting. That wouldn't be anywhere except Gladsheim.

[She's starting to wonder, though.]

I... guess so? [Honestly she hadn't really questioned being unconscious yet. It wouldn't be the first time she's woken up in bed without being sure how she got there. Usually that's because they got into a fight and she, uh, underperformed.] But it looks like they really overdid it.
refusedtoleave: (Headache)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-12 09:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Electrical lights aren't uncommon... Though I haven't seen them put into the floor before. And this 'friend' of yours brings people here often?
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 09:36 pm (UTC)(link)
No, he never does anything like that. I don't even know how he would. He can't really...

[Wait.]

Do you know what a computer is?
refusedtoleave: (Um)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-12 09:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, there goes that lead.]

You mean those machines?

[That says it all really.]
voltrounds: (B02F. The verdant in-between)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 09:59 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yep. That goes a long way, actually.]

Yes. M.I.K.E. is one of those. He can control Gladsheim's functions, at least the ones that are still working, but he can'd move around himself.
refusedtoleave: (Ew)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-12 10:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[She understood so much of that.]

And what is this 'Gladshim'?
voltrounds: (B02F. The verdant in-between)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 10:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[JUST NOD AND SMILE]

It's an old facility from the distant past. If you know about electric lighting, I'm surprised you haven't heard of it.
refusedtoleave: (What was that?)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-12 10:44 pm (UTC)(link)
[More like nod and varying level of frowns.]

I wouldn't say we've been using electricity that long for it to be from the 'distant past'.
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 10:49 pm (UTC)(link)
No, I mean the first time. The really distant past.

[this is obviously super helpful]
refusedtoleave: (Um)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-12 10:58 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't think electricity has been used that long... What year do you mean?

[She wasn't a expert but the girl had to be talking figuratively right?]
voltrounds: (B11F. A mysterious cerulean wood)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-12 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
It would have been a thousand years ago, before the current calendar.

[That's definitely something a not-crazy person would say, right?]
refusedtoleave: (Um)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-13 07:27 am (UTC)(link)
... We haven't been using electricity that long... And the calendar we use now is more than a thousand years old.
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-14 12:51 am (UTC)(link)
...all right. What year is it, going by that calendar?
refusedtoleave: (Headache)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-14 12:59 pm (UTC)(link)
1986, it's the beginning of October. [No hesitation there.]
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-14 01:07 pm (UTC)(link)
That's... definitely not what year it was last time I checked.
refusedtoleave: (What was that?)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-14 09:41 pm (UTC)(link)
I know what the date is!

[Are you implying she can't tell the time? Intentional or imagined, Ricky's getting a glare for it.]
voltrounds: (B05F. Staring down the roar)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-14 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Unless something happened that you didn't know about. What's the last thing you remember before being here?

[Could she have been in suspended animation without even knowing about it?]
refusedtoleave: (I can do this)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-14 11:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Leaving my room to go see my husband.
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-15 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
So you wouldn't have been unconscious.

[Welp. This is officially weird and baffling.]
refusedtoleave: (Of course)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-15 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Exactly, and no one should have been able to sneak up on me in the hallway.

[It's a big hallway, she would have noticed something, how would they even get in?]
voltrounds: (B11F. A mysterious cerulean wood)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-15 09:26 pm (UTC)(link)
I was thinking you might have been put into suspended animation before I was, but they couldn't do that without you noticing.
refusedtoleave: (Um)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-02-15 09:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Suspended...Animation? What is that?
voltrounds: (B05F. Staring down the roar)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-02-15 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
It's sort of a deep sleep that people can be put into for an extended period under controlled conditions.
