    A shuttlepod arrives and out steps a complete newcomer to Halo. She's something of an odd sight, with skin like pressed leaves and pure black eyes. She wears a poncho with a stylistic tower crest upon her chest. Vax looks around the room with a keen eye for detail. Is there perhaps someone here to greet guests? If not, she might just walk further inside the base without much care for good manners.

    Oh, don’t you worry, we’re very well stocked.

    Between me, our cheeseburger loving nurse and everyone else, we have to be.

    After we eat, we can go to the security room and check the cameras!

    Fel and Mr. C arrive in the kitchen, she sets him down on the counter and starts rummaging.

    We have a good supply of deli meats, you want a sandwich or just the meats?

    The Hanger (that doesn't get used much until now :o)

    "Would you pass me the- the- the that one please?" Comes a voice from under a nearly small-apartment sized engine-block, hanging from the ceiling. The owner of the voice is apparently one (1) very floofy kitsune, wearing a pair of denim overalls, gloves, and has both her hair and her mass of floof held back in some leather strips tying them together.
    She's under the engine block, on a small wooden platform on wheels, reaching under to try to get at . . . something, with one hand, while her other tries futilely to point at the mass of tools laid out nearby, so her assistant can try to get her the correct wrench for this situation.

    The Hangar

    Catie, Nurse’s tiny, moderately fluffy fennec-kitsune assistant, walks over and passes the pink one her tool.
    ”This one, Ma’am? Is everything alright? I have felt decidedly odd today. Very much so, actually.” she asks. Indeed, something definitely seems off.

    Nigel slows down, still anxiously looking between Rein and Fel. Please don't let him out. Nigel says, now stopping and trying not to spook out Rein. He was such a pain in the ass. Nigel moves bowls so he's holding them both on one arm (so talented) before reaching down to his satchel and slowly pulling out his syringe gun.

    That probably depends on how related you are to lizards.

    "I- No. What do they say about girls with glasses?" Maria asks skeptically, being a girl with glasses. Well now anyways. She still didn't feel like one. Regardless, she doubts she would learn anything substantial from this line of inquiry from Julie. Maria has the feeling that Julie is the type of person who reads conspiracy magazines and espouses them as truths because she read it in a magazine once.

    Regardless, Maria does inform Julie a little. "I have no familiarity with the male in question, but I believe the female you mentioned is Honeysuckle. I have met her before and am currently in the process of translating some works of literature into Braille for her. She did come across as a real scientist to me with my admittedly brief encounter. Let us go to her and discuss it further," Maria suggests as she turns to head towards the labs to find Honeysuckle.

    [Entrance Hall]

    Sometimes there's someone to greet guests. But it varies because there's currently limited staff and someone can't be there 24/7. Which means Reinholdt gets the notification that someone's arriving. So he drops what he's doing in the simulation room and scurries along towards the entrance, swearing that he's going to just put a couch there so he can sleep there and not have to run back and forth. Maybe he'll just claim it's his office and call it a day.

    The pink eyed human-like fey arrives shortly after the shuttle does, surprised to see someone he knows. "Ah! Vax. Good to see you again. What brings you to HALO?"

    Jacket-clad Julie continues following Maria down the hallways in order to find the labs. She can't remember whether or not she's seen the labs before so she just goes along with it. "Okay."

    What do they say about girls with glasses? "W-well..." Juliana blushes a little as she thinks about it. "You really want me to say it? What they say? Out loud?" She looks around, as if checking to make sure nobody's around, then leans in close to Maria and whispers something dirty.

    Serious question, though. Why has Julia stopped trying to trap Maria?
    It's because Maria has proved herself clever enough to avoid all of her traps laid out so far, that it would be better to have Maria as an ally instead of prey. And then if the appropriate occasion ever arises, then Ju...-

    She then quickly slips through the doors, and sidles along the wall inside the lab, looking for sharp objects to confiscate and hide behind her back.

    "I- tha- bu- ah-" Maria, it seems does not get out into social circles very much and has little to no experience in dealing with dirty concepts. Even the books she reads are tame, dense, scientific works dealing with dry, boring topics.

    Julie has successfully made Maria so completely flustered, that the girl simply cannot come up with any more words. At least, no coherent ones. Julie may not have realized humans can turn that shade of red. Well they can.

    Maria doesn't understand a thing about Julie's gestures, choosing instead to just walk in brazenly after the shapeshifter. Maria's head is down, ears burning, as she enters so she misses what Julie's up to and who may actually be inside.

    [Entrance Hall -> Office]

    Reinholdt tilts his head slightly. "Yeah, sure."

    Rein steps three spaces to the left. "Ok, go."

    Motioning for Vax to follow him, Rein leads her to a spare office. It's not his, but it's not anyone's so it works out. The important thing is it has a desk, chairs and a closed door. Reinholdt nods to a chair if Vax wants one before sitting on the edge of the desk.

    "A small amount," Reinholdt says. "Under Felandria's direction, we've started a greater focus on intellectualism and research. We're a bit broader in the fields of study than the Fourth Tower. And there's a stated purpose of enriching the lives of others. But I suppose we have some similarities now."

    First, you should know that while the hallway was well-lit, the meme-lab is not. The only lights come from the computers they had analyzing samples and other miscellaneous electronics.

    There are plenty of sharp objects. Mostly syringes, but there's a pair of scalpels on that table to the right, and a glass-disposal bin over there next to the refrigerator against the far wall, with some broken-and-probably-biohazardous shards in it.

    "!! That's Maria?" Comes the voice of a probably-real-scientist from behind the closed closet door.
    You can tell it's Maria from the books she has with her. No one else has that level of book.

    Whatever Julie whispered to Maria, it's probably true. At least in this case.

    Julie looks over the tables.
    Syringes! That's proof of collusion between those two! Because he had syringes, and there's syringes here.
    ...

    ...
    At least, Juliet would believe that if the whole 'collusion' thing wasn't a wholesale lie she made up. Still, she could probably use it as evidence to show to the clever-book-glasses-girl. She quickly confiscates one of them and places it in her jacket pocket. She then runs her hands over the scalpels and, like a sleight-of-hand trick, slides them up her sleeves.

    And a sharps box that she can just barely see in the bluish computer light! Jackpot!
    The clever book-girl seems to be distracted, and the cat?maybe? girl somehow trapped herself in a closet, so...Julia figures she has time. She sneaks towards the box. She turns her hand hard and chitinous, with bits of metal on it because she doesn't want to be accidentally pricked. And, against all reason, she reaches into the box to grab a handful of objects and then drop them in one of her jacket's inside pockets. For later, just in case she comes up with some use for them.


    At that moment, Julie remembers that the leather jacket she's wearing isn't a real leather jacket, it's just part of herself shaped to look like a jacket.
    And that she made the same mistake with the pockets as she did with the manacle's lock.

    Felandria nods and pulls out the meats and cheese.

    She grabs a couple of sub rolls and slices them open.

    Then she sorts the deli meats, she will take some of the roast beef and ham and place them on a plate to put in the microwave, as certain meats are better warm.

    First, a layer of mayo, then a layer of turkey, a layer of salami and a layer of cheese.

    She grabs the plate of warm meats, and adds the roast beef and the ham to the sandwiches.

    Now, a layer of sliced chicken, a layer of pastrami, another layer of cheese and a layer of pepperoni.

    And now a touch more mayo, and the sandwiches are ready.

    Would you like me to cut your sandwich for you?

The result of that transition was acceptable for the time, but we didn't consider it to have long term sustainability. With that in mind, we'd like to extend the opportunity to your organization to partner with the Fourth Tower."

    Julia is the most effective person at hurting Julie.

    Being called by name helps Maria remember why she's here. Though as she looks around for the source, it is a little baffling. Finding only the closet as the potential source, she starts to move towards it slowly.

    "Do not touch anything," Maria warns Juliette though without actually looking to see if she's touching something. A general warning perhaps? She surely can't see what the shapeshifter's up to from this angle.

    "Honeysuckle? Are you present within?" Unless warned away, Maria will attempt to open the closet door and find out through empirical evidence.


    [Rein's Temporary Office]

    "I tend to ramble my way into foresight," Reinholdt says with a small smile.

    Before fading to a more serious tone. "That would be quite an opportunity indeed. I can't deny I am interested." Rein lightly drums the edge of the desk. "I talked to the Fourth Tower you separated from. You were... less blunt than they were in your description of how that situation was resolved. If you find a partnership with HALO not as satisfactory as you'd like, how can I trust the Fourth Tower won't split in an equally disruptive manner?"

    Vax's face is carefully neutral as she explains. "The incident you're referring to was an internal conflict within the compound. Sekai used to lead us and she was intent on keeping herself and the Tower subservient to Malachenar. I and others had protested this arrangement for years before we departed. If we were to come to have the same objections to a partnership with Halo as we did with Malachenar, we would simply go our separate ways."

    Felandria slices Mr. C’s sandwich in twain and slides the plate to him.

    Well, before me, Tobias was in charge, he’s a good man and did a wonderful job.

    I started running things like a year ago, well, Reinholdt and I are co-leaders, anyway.

    He and I are looking to make this place work in harmony with the other organizations.

    Rein figures that if VIGIL is the brawn, and GLOG is the heart, then we should be the brains.

    ...

    ...
    At least, Juliet would believe that if the whole 'collusion' thing wasn't a wholesale lie she made up. Still, she could probably use it as evidence to show to the clever-book-glasses-girl. She quickly confiscates one of them and places it in her jacket pocket. She then runs her hands over the scalpels and, like a sleight-of-hand trick, slides them up her sleeves.

    And a sharps box that she can just barely see in the bluish computer light! Jackpot!
    The clever book-girl seems to be distracted, and the cat?maybe? girl somehow trapped herself in a closet, so...Julia figures she has time. She sneaks towards the box. She turns her hand hard and chitinous, with bits of metal on it because she doesn't want to be accidentally pricked. And, against all reason, she reaches into the box to grab a handful of objects and then drop them in one of her jacket's inside pockets. For later, just in case she comes up with some use for them.


    At that moment, Julie remembers that the leather jacket she's wearing isn't a real leather jacket, it's just part of herself shaped to look like a jacket.
    And that she made the same mistake with the pockets as she did with the manacle's lock.

    Being called by name helps Maria remember why she's here. Though as she looks around for the source, it is a little baffling. Finding only the closet as the potential source, she starts to move towards it slowly.

    "Do not touch anything," Maria warns Juliette though without actually looking to see if she's touching something. A general warning perhaps? She surely can't see what the shapeshifter's up to from this angle.

    "Honeysuckle? Are you present within?" Unless warned away, Maria will attempt to open the closet door and find out through empirical evidence.
    Shoving weapons into your body to store them sounds like an excellent way to be injured. I would consider her at least extremely pricked.

    "And who else? What's wrong with their clothes?" she sort of mutters.

    "Oh, yeah, I'm-"
    When the door opens we find Honeysuckle on her tip-toes trying to reach a box on a high shelf. She's fairly disheveled-looking, but I doubt Maria notices that much.
    "So...what are you here for?"
    And...there! The box tips into her hands.

    ...and that's Julie's cue!
    She decides to speak up now, ignoring all possible bleeding she starts to experience in her pocket; she can fix that later.

    First, she glances over at Maria, trying to remember which was the reason they had decided on for coming over here. "Ah, yes. I am one of the...science inspectors, Juliana, here to inspect your science to make sure everything is ethical and properly scientific." She nods and then puts on something that looks like glasses frames, without lenses. Gotta look professional, after all.

    "See, we have received some complaints that people have been stealing science equipment like syringes and labcoats and running around playing pranks on other members, and we were wondering if you had noticed anything of the sort." She wishes she had a clipboard, then she could ask this animal-girl over to look at something.


    [Post-Spider-Party; Entrance]

    A woman who hasn't been here in quite a while takes the long shuttle ride down to HALO's base.

    The shapeshifter half-elf whose ID card says 'Holly' has, ultimately, decided on HALO for a number of reasons. First, she did dance with Felandria at that party. It's a good enough reason on its own, right? Not to mention, she did some background research into the capabilities and equipment they have. AMEN might not have the right facilities accessible, and she's not on the best of terms with some of its members. Same with Vigil, even though they would probably be very interested in what she eventually finds out. If she goes to GLoG, she might accidentally put all those children at risk if something goes wrong. MERC would probably work, but it might take too long to gain access to the right equipment. HALO, on the other hand, seems to be a perfect fit.

    Okay.
    First things first.

    The shuttle arrives at the base. While at the party Holly was wearing a mask and a tweed suit, she now wears a floral skirt and has make-up carefully applied to cover up any of her scarring. A long glove covers her right arm. Her hair is braided, with a flowering vine braided into it.
    The average woman exits the shuttle.

    Ah, one of the large closets. Maria isn't used to such spacious storage solutions. She opens her mouth to reply when Juliana answers Honeysuckle herself. Maria stares at Julie for a few moments, struggling with how... indirect that was. What an incredibly odd girl.

    "I have belief that what she is attempting to articulate is that someone deceived her with an exaggerated hoax regarding a virus that affects one's mental capabilities upon eating brains. And thus left her with the delusion she needed to constrain herself in the hallway. And the entities spreading these claims are you and a currently unidentified man."

    Getting the chance to rephrase it like this to Honeysuckle, in the way everything has been described to him, gives Maria pause. He stares at Julie some more as if assessing her. Things would make a whole lot more sense if Julie had been affected by some mental instability. Why she chained herself up in the first place, how she didn't know she had gotten free, her fascination with glasses- gah. Why does Julie have those fake glasses on? Maria's all red again.

If we were to come to have the same objections to a partnership with Halo as we did with Malachenar, we would simply go our separate ways."

    "Sekai was certainly the most vocal." Reinholdt gives a small smile. "Was working for Malachenar that bad? I mean besides the fact they were clearly overcompensating with that flying castle of theirs."

    Oh please. Maybe no one here remembers the flying citadel Rein once had, but it is something that very distinctly happened.

Yeah.

    "Malechenar is domineering and treated us like little more than more of their minions, and Sekai was not inclined to push back against their demands. It's possible simply removing her from leadership would have improved our situation, but that likely would have damaged our relationship with Malachenar irreparably in any case." Vax maintains her even tone. There's no use letting bad blood stir her up now.

    If Honeysuckle's eyes weren't already closed, she would be blinking them in surprise.
    Science inspector? That has to be a joke.
    She steps out of the closet and sets the box down on the table.
    "Nah, nothing like-"
    "What. Is that Juleka? You're no science inspector, you're-"

    Oh. Thanks to Maria for explaining that it is a joke. Or...no, Julie's actually gone mad. What was it that she said when they first met? It had taken some effort to drag an answer out of her, when they warned her about the virus. Cold hands? Was that really the only clue?
    Perhaps this is a good time to mention that Honeysuckle is radiating as much magic as ever. Did Julie forget about that when she came up with this plan?

    The animal-girl in the opaque goggles sidles over towards the door.
    "Maria, our friend here is real sick. Not a hoax."

    [About to escape the Poorly-lit Lab]

    She didn't forget what would happen after her plan.
    It's just that she didn't think it through.

    Perhaps that's part of the influence of the meme-virus, in addition to her own penchant for off-the-cuff improv.
    Luckily, however, with the small amount of shapeshifting she's done, Juleka has managed to burn off some of the absorbed magic. Still the same problem, but unless something changes it'll take longer to happen. Speaking of, she returns her hardened hand to normal flesh as they talk. Now what she really should do is do something about her pockets-full-of-sharps to keep them from pooling up with blood from her 'jacket'. And that is what she would do, except...

    ...they're catching on! No! Julia needs to take control back over the situation. "Book-girl!" she says, addressing Maria. "Don't listen to her, she's trying to trick you!"

    She looks over her options. There's two of them and they're both between her and the door. If there were only one of them, it would be much easier to escape. So, her only real option is to get one of them to leave. Juliana shouts across the room, "You get away while you still can! I'll distract her!"

    She starts off sprinting directly towards Honeysuckle but tries to side-step last-second towards the door.

    "Nothing ruins a dream job quite like a bad boss." Or so Reinholdt's been told.

    "In terms of the partnership, did you have specifics in mind? I presume at the very least you'd want access to our facilities. The library is pretty much open to anyone, but how many rooms would you be needing besides that? I'm afraid I'm unfamiliar with the size of your organization." Maybe Rein's wrong in his presumption, but right now the facilities are the strongest offering point HALO has. Membership talent is swiftly catching up though.

    [Poorly-Lit Lab]

    Maria steps away from both of them, not wanting to get in between the two. Right now it has just been a back and forth accusation of lies. "Listen, let us all just calm down and discuss things rationally like adults. No one needs to accuse each other or- hey!" Julie is very much not listening to Maria at all! Charging Honeysuckle like that.

    The bookworm hesitates. Should she intercede in this? Maybe it would be best to let them work this out? He is tempted though. None of this is conducive for a learning environment.

    Felandria is also eating her sammich, and it is nummy.

    She takes a sip of fruit juice and swallows.

    Things are going pretty well, no major crises just yet.

    We’ve been recruiting a decent amount, everyone is getting along very well.

    Of course, always looking for more.

    When Julie comes barreling towards her, Honeysuckle gets out of the way.
    By stepping in front of the door and blocking the exit with herself. She also lifts a hand to the dials on the side of her goggles. In case the whatever-Juliana-is turns out to be a danger.
    When you announce that you're going to be a distraction right in front of the person you're trying to distract...

    But she's just one animal-girl. Jules could probably just knock her over and escape without even resorting to shapeshifting.

    "Good plan, Maria. Juleka, sit down at the desk 'n explain, hmm?"
    Honeysuckle waves with her left hand.
