That was new. He couldn't be an AI, nobody would build one to look elderly, but why would such an old man be there? He didn't look like he was dead yet. Only mostly. Must be a friend of Morbid's. "Excuse me. Do you know if Mortimer is in?"
"You know him too, do you?"
The old man smiled. It was good to see his little misfit made so many friends.
"He is in, alright, though not available. It seems we’ve switched places. I’m his father Vjeko…"
Something about him…
"…You sound very, very familiar. Who was in charge of your model?"
Looks like there's somebody headed in the direction of the morgue, with a little book in hand. Logic hadn't visited Morbid in a little while, after all, and he did want to share a few new recipes with his friend.
And instead of the AI, an old man sat at the entrance instead, looking at Logic.
Was she headed here? Little flat for a woman AI. Oh well, supposed different people had their tastes.
Grave encounters! GhostDad!
And just like that, Dr. Vjeko Andrasko replaced his son. Which was, odd, considering he was in the other room just a moment ago.
The morgue looked very, very different. A table was missing, everything had aged, there was a cat here…?
Where did Mortimer go?
- Calling in sick - the muse is sick, and another character/muse must fill in for them.
- Old times - muse is replaced for by a young version of one of their parents.
- Man the canons- if the muse is an OC, they’re replaced by a canon character. If they’re canon, they’re replaced by an OC.
- Grave encounters - the muse is replaced by someone from their past. The catch- this person must have died. They can’t remember their death…
- New worlds - muse is replaced by a character/muse from another fandom.
- AU - muse is an AU version of themselves (anon specifies which AU).
- Freaky friday - muse is body-swapped with another muse (anon specifies, both muns must agree).
- Nothing personal - if the muse has an alternate personality/persona, then that becomes the dominant persona. Ergo, the alternate now believes they are the original.
There's hardly any need for a 'conserve water' excuse.
*Pulls in anyway*
You take too long with all that hair, man!
*Pets hair, mumbles something along the lines of ‘It’s okay, she doesn’t know what she’s talking about’ *
We agreed only once. Now if I could finish bathing in peace?
*Covers up and lets her have it??? Goodness people desperate for showers.*
"Do you expect differently? It is hard to give much of a caring thought to those that have tried to harm you many times over." will leave without protest though.
"And yet here we are, having a civil conversation."
Hm, he sounds bitter. As soon as GLaDOS was out, the sliding doors locked themselves.
"They will return. They always do." sees no problem here, other than the lack of testing, "I would not bother speaking with that woman, though. She is incapable of listening to reason."
"I wonder how you can be so very calloused." Huffs.
"In either case, I will go and speak to her. Please leave, so I can lock up."
Oh, conversation! Good distraction. "Yes, three of them. Their mother-figure is quite upset with it." furrows her brow, "She wanted to litter the halls with organs from who she suspects took them." head tilt, "Do you want them? The organs? I rather have a living test subject but should that fail." shrugs.
"Ada would appreciate them more than I. But now that I know, I should go and see if I can offer any help in the matter."
Sighs, so much for sleeping tonight.
"They’re part of my family too, you know. I would appreciate if something like this reached me, sooner?"
"Perhaps. There are test subjects missing and needed to find something to keep my mind off the fact nothing is getting done." Better than seething til corrupted; she's learning! Looks back to the bookcase, "Your feline is missing an eye. I found it unique."
"Test subjects, missing? The girls you mean?"
Oh, that gave a worried glance. Didn’t like hearing that. The cat was forgotten for now.
"Oh." sheepish grin, "That was me. I do not need to explain the how or why, do I?" Made a lovely feline, yes.
…oh. Makes a sheepish face himself, considering all the baby talk he did.
"…Right. Well. We’ll put it behind us. In either case, ah… Did you come here solely for the cat?"
