Dear Multiverse
ANY question will be answered. We care.

Lean on me
Daniel Jackson, linguist extraordinaire, has entered the Nexus. He runs a hand through his hair, looking frazzled.

"What would you do if you had someone else living in your head?"

"Annoy them!" Random Blitzwing says from his seat on a couch, grinning his fangy grin, "Oh, wait, I already do that! AHAHAHAH!"
25th-Mar-2010 01:06 am (UTC)
Daniel raises an eyebrow, and when he speaks it's still his voice, but with different inflections and accent. "Oh, I do, darling." Vala is rather smug about it, too. She looks Blitzwing up and down. "You're a rather shiny... personage."
25th-Mar-2010 01:17 am (UTC)
Random cackles, "Thank you!" and then his face spins, reveiling Icy's blue one. "How curious."

Irma was finishing up smoking a cigarette when she hears the question, and abruptly coughs a little. She looks a little awkward for a moment, but then hides it quickly.

"... adjust."
25th-Mar-2010 01:27 am (UTC)
Daniel frowns and makes a vague hand gesture. "What, just... like that?" It's not like they haven't been trying.
25th-Mar-2010 01:30 am (UTC)
"No, of course not," Irma says quickly. "Do you like each other? Or... tolerate each other, at least?"
25th-Mar-2010 01:15 am (UTC)
"Tell 'em, go find your own brain to live in," Steve says succinctly, from where he and Gary are standing against a nearby wall.

"Or A.I., in our case," Gary adds. "'Course, we do come from a place where the boss-lady says she can clone people."
25th-Mar-2010 01:30 am (UTC)
Daniel's face scrunches up. "My own brain is kind of dead," Vala mutters through his mouth. Though now that she's noticed the presence of the two little androids, she's automatically assessing their value on the black market. "You wouldn't happen to be made of anything... expensive, would you?"
25th-Mar-2010 01:35 am (UTC)
Steve and Gary would be making startled faces now if they could. "Whoa, that's weird," Steve says, red "eye" flickering. "And yeah, I guess not having a brain would be a problem. Uh -- I dunno, draw lots for who gets to go on when?"

"Who wants to know?" Gary says, automatically suspicious. "We're just standard-issue sentry turrets."

"Apart from our charming personalities, of course," Steve adds in just a slightly sleazy tone.
25th-Mar-2010 01:29 am (UTC)
Kill it with fire! Aion has...issues along that line, but the twitch is very well concealed. "I suppose it would depend on the situation," he says.
25th-Mar-2010 01:37 am (UTC)
Daniel tilts his head, thinking. "I guess it's kind of like... a lifeboat." That was what Sam used to describe the Stromos incident. "Except her body died before she could go back and now she's kind of... stuck."
25th-Mar-2010 03:19 am (UTC)
Johansen looks up from his book.

"Literally or figuratively?" he asks, intrigued.
25th-Mar-2010 03:24 am (UTC)
"Literally. Very much literally." Daniel frowns, and waves vaguely beside his head. "We have to put up with each other basically twenty-four seven, except when we're asleep."
25th-Mar-2010 06:19 am (UTC)
"That's normal for us," says a blond boy. "So I suppose we would be relieved that things are as they should be."
25th-Mar-2010 11:57 am (UTC)
Daniel raises an eyebrow. "Are you symbiotic?" It feels strange to use that term to mean mutually beneficial relationships instead of, you know, alien snakes. But a Goa'uld wouldn't take a host that looked this young, and a Tok'ra probably wouldn't either.
26th-Mar-2010 03:12 am (UTC)
"You could say that," says the boy. Although maybe you couldn't by the strict textbook biological definition. "We're Gemini."

And then he takes a half step to the right. At the exact same time, like some odd camera trick, he takes a half step to the left. There are now two blond boys.

"I'm Castor," says one.

"I'm Pollux," says the other.

As a telepath, I often have all kinds of temporary residents in my head. You learn to deal with it eventually. Or go nuts.
25th-Mar-2010 11:59 am (UTC)
"I wish this was temporary," Vala grumbles, and uses Daniel's hand to poke his own shoulder. As if this was all his fault.
25th-Mar-2010 08:01 pm (UTC)
For me, "temporary" just means that I don't have any permanent residents but a revolving door of visitors. In your case, you two will have to adjust to each other and play the hand you're dealt.

"Accept it, I suppose." There's a reason the young woman over there doesn't immediately look up from frowning at her book. Don't want to look like the question's too relevant, do we?

"Well, I wouldn't, personally," she admits, biting her lip as she looks up at Daniel. "But it'd be the sensible thing to do. Co-operation... negotiation would count for a lot, I think."
25th-Mar-2010 08:11 pm (UTC)
"Accept it." There's a reason the young woman nearby doesn't immediately look up from frowning at her book. Don't want to look like that question is too relevant.

"Well, I wouldn't," she admits, biting her lip as she looks up at Daniel. "But it sounds like the sensible thing to do. Co-operation... negotiation would be the key, I think."
25th-Mar-2010 09:36 pm (UTC)
"If only it was that easy..." Daniel tries not to sigh too loudly. "We probably won't be allowed back on active duty until we've sorted this out, but I don't think I could pick a worse person to be sharing my body with." Vala pretends not to hear him.
25th-Mar-2010 10:43 pm (UTC)
Telrim nods. Though she's letting her host supply the halfway genuine harmless facade, there's something studying in her gaze. "Oh. So there's a... um, struggle for dominance?" That's not good. Quick, here's her concerned face.

He sighs, overly dramatic. "I am convinced if a certain... old friend of mine was cursed with my presence inside their head, twenty-four-seven, they'd be forced to fall head over heels in love with me and keep me forever."
1st-Apr-2010 07:55 pm (UTC)
That seems like a rather... odd thing to say. "Twenty-four seven... so it happened at least once, just not permanently?"

He's not going to even touch the falling in love part, lest Vala take it as a cue to begin the innuendo.
