Georgios runs a hand through his blond hair as he endures the social awkwardness called mutual silence for a moment, before deciding to break the mold.
”So you have any sort of special abilities Brucey or are you just brainy, smart guy who prefers to be in the background of things?
"Define unique fabric for me, Sam, because something tells me you probably won't be finding any in the friggin' desert," Nicole answers Samsara. "Well, not unless you can somehow weave sand into people's clothes."
I'm just a scientist. I do know how to use my gadgets but I'm not really carrying... huh, laser blasters.
Hey, I did find cool stuff in the desert once.
And I kind of wanted to be alone to meditate on something.
”That’s awesome to hear at least, after all from my understanding scientist are well-off and have stable lives aren’t they?
Deciding to take the initiative to not let quiteiness to take over once more here, Georgios started to talk again.
”To add a bit on this topic of ours, I’m just a guy with powers who likes uses dirty and underhanded tricks to win battles or to run away from them if possible.
"Well, let me know if you do manage to locate some exotic fabrics around these parts," Nicole replies. "Anyway, I'm guessing you were gonna mediate on either... Gangrel or the fight from yesterday. How far from the truth were those answers?"

Callis is chilling in an air-sit position.
Cauldros, Scholes Battleground
Cyber Cooler flies in. "Wha-dammit, I lost them again."

Bruce raises an eyebrow.
Err... good for you ? he says, unsure about what to say next.
... That person, Laurent's sister, is Morgan. I know that because Morgan was my son in my world and is every Robin's child. Miriel was wed to another version of me. she answers. And he very likely erased himself from existence defeating Grima for good.
There's a flash, and Oca pops in, breathing raggedly. There's a hole blown in his chest that looks like it was probably due to overuse of Demigod, and his arms are literally drenched in blood. And soot.
He plops to the ground.
Alterverse!Cooler is walking around in his final form.
"The fools back home better not be causing too much trouble…"
He slowly nibbles a nutrient bar.
Callis pops a Senzu Essence Capsule on Oca's head. "Okay, what the fuck happened?"
Ribbonverse!Cooler spots his alternate self and rushes over. "You must be the one. Another alternate Cooler told me about you."
”I’m just have to say Brucey that’s the face of somebody who doesn’t know what to say next or how to continue this conversation.
Is it time already to leave? …. Probably and so Georgios got up from his seat and started to walk away from Bruce.
”This talk of ours was nice Bruce, hope to see ya around later if it is possible, but for now goodbye and good luck with your life Brucey.
He looks up at her for a second.
"The best birthday ever."
His voice is dripping with sarcasm and bitterness.
The drill sergeant emperor glances at his counterpart.
"You know the machine Cooler?"
I'm not good at small talk... so huh, see you ?
He awkwardly waves his hand, spilling some liquid on the floor.
"Hoo boy, timeline shenanigans..."
Nicole lets out a deep, heavy sigh, then shakes her head.
"I'm just gonna be real with you here, Sam, I have no friggin' idea what to say about your... Morgan dilemma."
To be honest, I'm mostly worried about Miriel herself. I think that she's searching for this other "me" somewhere in the Arena and she might run into troubles if she gets a bad case of tunnel vision.
I'm ready to have a talk with her but it's kinda hard to tell someone... "hey just shake off your beloved's memory". I'm tempted about having someone check actually. At the very least, she could get closure.

"Ah, fuck. It was your birthday. So, what actually happened?"
Puddin warps in, holding a rather large and plain yellowish-white egg. "Oca, I got Tokitoki's egg for you!"
"After Son Goku's entire family, he was one of the first people I encountered here. But indeed. Not only did I meet a purely-mechanical version of myself, but..." He pats the Cosmic Suit plating on his chest. "I too have been enhanced by the Big Gete Star. I simply find the organic body more versatile."
Cyber Cooler turns Golden. "Our counterpart tells me you can do this too."
He'd seen enough. The blue thing was clearly some form of mechanical assassin - the kind his former masters were so fond of. Although its strange shape indicated that it was neither from his world nor one of the so-called "Cogs", he won't stand idly by while it slaughters someone whose only crime seems to have been idly picking up some kind of jewel.
A black blur bursts out the Noctilum shadows, a fist as hard as asphalt aiming to unleash a vicious blow at Metal Sonic's head.
"Okay... Assuming this male Robin really did erase himself from existence just to kill Grima, which I'm pretty sure made way more sense in context, I... yeah, sorry, I've honestly got nothing here," Nicole admits.
"Oh, hey Puddin."
Oca sits up.
"Well, you know how the CCP was formed out of response to a massive external threat? Uniting psychopaths, destructive abominations, and old enemies in a fight for survival?"
"Well, turns out when you remove the external threat keeping everyone working together…"
An explosion is mimed with his hand, him making a little "ka-fwoosh noise.
Alter!Cooler flares golden as well, but powers down quickly enough.
"Yes, I too have unlocked the secrets to my further evolution! I believe I'm currently the second or this most powerful warrior?"
... Heh, that's something for me to deal with. Anyway, as for Malefoy, I'll do my research and I won't move out on him. And I plan to talk with Gangrel, to get to perhaps learn moreabout him.
Metal Sonic goes skidding backwards across the ground, dropping the Chaos Emerald.
Bloody Bunny immediately picks it up.
Metal Sonic makes a "hand it over" gesture with one arm.
"Um... would having the egg at least make you feel better?"
"I hate the idea, but going Liminal might actually be necessary to stop what I assume is an all-out war in your new metaverse."
"So you never met Goku. Interesting."
"I have my own army of metal selves in addition to my cyborg enhancements and perfecting the Golden form. I bet I could win if we came to blows."
The Devourer and Storm Weaver stayed back, watching the others take care of the remaining Fox Spirits.
"Y'know, Anna said she'd tell me about the whole Manfroy thing later. If you ain't around when that happens, I'll pass it on to ya."
Nicole claps Samsara on the shoulder.
"Heh, and good luck actually getting something outta Gangrel besides the urge to strangle him."
Right, Manfroy. she says, snaping her fingers.
I'm a people's person. And I know what makes Gangrel ticks. replies Samsara. But I'll try to cheer Lucina up first. I can't really stand seeing her just... sad.
"Prooobably, but I doubt it'd be much good. The power gap is just… really, really fucking high, I don't think applying the multiplier to any one of us would make us viable against the big guys."
"And… yeah, thanks Puddin. hmmm… wonder the force of a bomb powered by an unborn timeline…"
"If I'm being honest, I enjoyed the fighting part. It's been a while since I've straight up plowed through enemies with broken moves and unfair tactics, without nerfing cramping my style."
"I have an industrial empire, and have been training intensely ever since I was beaten back by a human warrior. Yes, embarrassing, I know, but it was a great rerailment for my exercise program."
"Can you do this?"
He starts powering up, and enters his augmented form. Something signals that he still isn't done, though.
"What you think? That there's a creature down here that can copy Ghost's energy signature?" Nebula quizzed in her shared head with her sister.
"Possibly," Corona remarked in turn, "But it seems like his story checks out. I mean, if this was a fake, then he's gone to some pretty insane extremes to get us to lower our guard..."
The spider lady sighed and stretched out her arm, "Sorry, but we couldn't take any chances. I mean, there being two of you to track just screams suspicious..."
Miles waited for the elevator to arrive as he eyed the shaft leading down yet again, "Geez...just how far down does this rabbit hole go...?" Regardless, he stepped aboard and pulled the lever to head down.
