"I really like their use of the phrase “Cure Weapons,” which makes me think of a weaponized Robert Smith."

Aradia: s0, any new experiments y0u were g0ing t0 try, Kanaya?
Medic!Kanaya: Yes Indeed I Am Currently Working On A New Beam Weapon That Dispenses A Very Powerful Laser
(Medic!Kanaya looks down.)
Medic!Kanaya: However All It Can Do Currently Is To In Fact Heal The Target Instead Of Harming It And You Know What I Say About These Things
Aradia: uh, "the healing is n0t as rewarding as the hurting?"
i think that is a very w0rthwhile s0rt 0f device t0 w0rk 0n
have y0u tested it 0n anything yet?
Medic!Kanaya: Exactly That Yes
(Medic!Kanaya tilts her head)
Medic!Kanaya: And How Would Be A Device That Heals Your Opponent Be Of Any Use?
Ace: Maybe, you could use it on your allies. Have you tried that yet?
Aradia: perhaps y0ur enemy w0uldn't be the target
it helps heal any 0f y0ur allies s0 that y0u d0n't waste as much time 0n the healing
s0 y0u c0uld get back t0 the, er, hurting faster
...and that's just in c0mbat
think 0f h0w it c0uld be used in, say, n0n-combat situati0ns
Medic!Kanaya: This Is Indeed Quite An Idea Using It On Your Allies
