"How hurt?"

Permalink

"I don't know. I must have passed people with all sorts of light cuts and such, and it didn't activate for that. We might just have to experiment."

Permalink

"Huh, too bad you're not a man."

Permalink

"Because of Gabe."

Permalink

"Um." She glances between the two of them. "Is he... a masochist? I'm not sure I'd be comfortable with that, even if he was interested in women." She shifts on her feet, uncomfortable. 

Permalink

"Not quite a masochist, more li-"

Permalink

She coughs, "Thanks," she tells Felix. "Um. I don't really want to have to ask someone to let me practice on them, but all of the boys will probably volunteer, if I do." She sighs. 

Permalink

"We will volunteer as well, my main fear is that we might get too hurt to be fixed for the shifter confrontation. Can you check beforehand what are the limits of what you can do?"

Permalink

"I hope activating it doesn't take an injury that serious. If we start getting to that point we should just stop and wait to test this until we aren't planning to be doing something very dangerous in a few hours. As for checking the limits, I'm not sure how I would. Maybe the database on the command console will have the specifics of what all this equipment is for?" She lifts the scanner, and waves at the machines in the infirmary. 

Permalink

"Wouldn't hurt to check. ...Huh, this a weird idea, but what do you think it happens if we prevent you from treating an injured person? Any idea? Do you think you would turn violent?"

Permalink

"I..." She thinks on it. 

"...It depends on what my actions while in the fugue are based off of? If they are based off of some... nebulous concept of what a doctor should be like, then no. If they are based off of what would do, if my conscious mind was disengaged and there was someone I felt I could help, but I was being held back... then yes." 

Permalink

"What if they were your friends? I am trying to see if we could keep you in the fugue state for longer."

Permalink

"Longer? Why? Well, I'm really not sure if I recognize anyone while I'm in it, anyway." She thinks back on the two times she went into the fugue state, trying to remember the exact circumstances.

"...It activated automatically for Robin, where it didn't until I tried to make a cure for the man Scout 15 copied? I'm not sure if that means I will recognize them while in it, though. Again, we might have to experiment." She frowns, "Now that I think of it, it might be I could just... intend to make a medicine for a specific problem and that would send me straight into it. It might also be that I need to have a patient right in front of me, however."

Permalink

"...I think going to a hospital might be too much of a detour. But we could try something like that, maybe just knowing for a fact what a person is facing health-wise might be enough to make you give instructions? Actually, we should definitely test if someone else can use the machines."

"We should! You can still read Allurian, right? Here," she offers him the scanner, stepping closer so they can both see the screen. 

"The scanner tells me what the problem is, if I scan a person," she adds as well, in response to the other question. "So long as someone is injured or sick in some way I can't treat with one of the two formulas I already know how to make, I expect I can trigger the state just by intending to treat them. I more meant, it could be that I don't need to have a patient in front of me, maybe I can just intend to treat something specific and trigger the state. That's an easy experiment, I can try it as soon as we're done testing this."

"t is, let me cast the spell again," he does and checks the medical device.

The screen is currently set on 'scan subtance'. Erin points out the controls - it's all pretty intuitive to her, she realizes, perhaps more than is perfectly natural, but it's not hard to explain. Would he like to try scanning one of the formulas on the shelf, first of all? Just to see if the scanner works for him at all, before he tries making any formulas himself. 

Permalink

He would, hopefully the thing doesn't decide to spark in his hands?

Permalink

Nope! It seems to like him just fine. It will scan the substance for him, declaring it to be 'topical burn reliever'. 

Permalink

"Oooh, great." He announces this. "I love made-up medicine."

Permalink

"Oh, that's useful! It is growing on me," she admits, "Even if it is ridiculous and uncomfortable. Do you want to try making the... 'neuro-overload stabilizer', now? That's the one I made for Caine at the dojo, to treat the nerve shock from the shapeshifter that touched him." 

Permalink

Felix follows those instructions as well.

Permalink

Following those directions produces the formula in question. 

"That's- really good. I know Fenris was able to heal you after the shifter touched you at the dojo," she nods at him, "But having more options for healing from that especially sounds like a good idea given what we're about to do. I'm a little worried nerve damage like that might have lingering effects if left unhealed... and I've never heard Caine scream like that before," she adds, quietly.
