There is a small British man in part of the Nexus, shouting at a blue Lamborghini as he leans against the door. "No! Look, stay a car, okay? You're drawing far too much attention to yourself. You don't see me going around changing my shape all the time. Well, you do, but not in public."

The car beeps sadly, and rocks slightly on its wheels. His stern expression falters and he pats the hood, before looking around. "Blimey. What a place." He reads the Sign, looking over it thoroughly as he thinks. "Who's your best friend and why?"

"My best friend's Dr. Emmett Brown, though he usually goes by 'Doc,'" Marty says, moving forward quickly. "And he's this awesome scientist guy who helped me get through Hell, which tends to make you close to a person. Is your car alive?" This is an important question.

"Yes, but don't ask me how, I haven't the foggiest," Drake says, casting a scowl at the car.

The engine makes a noise that sounds remarkably like a raspberry.

Marty laughs. "I'm asking because -- well, Doc's got a car that's alive too. Result of craziness with changing dimensions and all of that. Last thing I ever expected to see was another one."

That catches his attention. "Really? Does your friend's car turn into anything, too?"
13th-Feb-2011 03:49 am (UTC)
"Turn into -- do not tell me yours turns human too," Marty blurts, eyes wide. He's been coming to the Nexus for a while now, and dealt with Faeries back home, but -- this is just plain nuts.

There's a flurry of excited honks, and the car rocks on her wheels, almost bouncing up and down.

"Afraid so," Drake says, and thumps the hood gently. "Easy there."

"Holy shit," Marty says, yanking out his PINpoint. "Doc and Dee gotta know about this." He sends a quick message to his friend. "Uh, how old is she when she changes?" he adds. "Our Dee -- short for DeLorean -- looks about six."
13th-Feb-2011 04:17 am (UTC)
"Seventeen, I'd guess." He looks only partially like he recognizes what a DeLorean is, since they were never very popular outside of the states.
13th-Feb-2011 04:25 am (UTC)
"Huh." Marty tilts his head at the car. "What kind of car is yours? Does she have a name?" Marty's no car guy -- he only notices the ones that really stand out, like Edsels and -- natch -- DeLoreans.

Meanwhile, Doc's gotten the message, and is feeling a bit torn. On the one hand, another living car! Dee will have someone to talk to! On the other. . .is it really okay to leave Victor alone, after what's just transpired with him being possessed and everything? He checks briefly on the young man, who says that he'll be fine and would actually like a bit of time to himself. Doc, satisfied, gathers up Dee and sends a message to Marty that they'll be there shortly. "Looks like they're coming to say hi," Marty says to Drake with a grin.

(OOC: Obviously, Doc and Dee visiting here takes place before/during the Alice post of awful.)

"She's a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo," he says proudly. "She calls herself Lambo."

The car nudges him with her door, rather insistently, and beeps when he doesn't immediately pay attention to her. "No, not yet," he says. "Be patient."
13th-Feb-2011 06:16 am (UTC)
"Nice," Marty says, picking up on the pride in the guy's voice. He chuckles. "Lambo and Dee. One of these days we need to meet a car like this who calls himself Rick or herself Jessica or something."

Lambo doesn't have long to wait -- about a minute later, an older man with a shock of white hair and a little brunette girl appear on the scene. "Hi!" the girl says, running up. "Are you the guy with the car?"

"Dee," Doc says with a good-natured groan. "Hi, I'm Dr. Emmett Brown, and that's Dee Brown."
13th-Feb-2011 02:33 pm (UTC)
"I'm Drake Wintour," he says, leaning back on the car door behind him. "This is Lambo." He looks at the little girl, marveling at how apparently she's a vehicle too.

Lambo gives a friendly honk, and again uses her door to nudge Drake questioningly. "Yes, all right, you can change," he says.

Which she does, quite gladly, and beams at all of them. "Hi!"
13th-Feb-2011 05:57 pm (UTC)
Somehow, seeing your own car/girl transform like that doesn't prepare you for the sight of another car/girl doing the same thing. Doc's jaw drops as the Lambo shifts. "Great Scott," he murmurs. Then he gets a grip on himself and gives her a smile. "Hello. It's nice to meet you both."

Dee looks up at the new girl. This is a bit surprising. "You're older than me," she notes.

"Yeah, she looks about my age," Marty agrees. This weirds him out more than the Lambo changing -- after seeing Dee, he's more or less gotten the idea that all cars are little kids. "Hey there."
14th-Feb-2011 11:12 am (UTC)
"Hi!" she chirps cheerily. "I'm Lambo. You're a car too?"
14th-Feb-2011 12:57 pm (UTC)
"Yup! Lookit!" Now it's Dee's turn to transform -- and just like that, there's a (semi-functional) DeLorean time machine sitting in front of everyone. The gullwing doors pop and wiggle briefly as she beeps her horn.

"She's a 1981 DeLorean modified for time travel," Doc says proudly.
14th-Feb-2011 06:07 pm (UTC)
Lambo giggles and runs her hands over the shiny metal hood on the other car. "Your doors are funny!"

Drake looks Dee over rather thoroughly. "Classic design, I see. How long has she been like that?"
14th-Feb-2011 08:30 pm (UTC)
"Gullwings," Doc answers for Dee, as Dee flaps them. "I don't know why he chose to have them like that, but. . . ." He grins at Drake. "I'm a sucker for a beautiful car. And--" He does a bit of mental math. "About three months now. The unexpected result of a dimensional displacement while I was attempting temporal displacement with a similar vehicle."

"That means Doc built a time machine out of another DeLorean, tried to test it, and the universe decided to trade it for this one in English," Marty said. "And because those weird portals are weird, it decide to make the new one turn into a kid."
