Dr. Nemesis - A complete goddamn whim

What parasitic bag of stupidity is responsible for creating a miserably glitchy automaton whose sole purpose is forced interdimensional abduction on a massive scale and then daring to claim an altruistic intent?

I must know because there must be crotch-punching at once!

If you can answer that one, Doctor, you'll have solved one of The City's greatest mysteries!

Congratulations in advance, have at it.

McCoy!

You mean to tell me you've been here for longer than a day and you haven't found the answer, OR a way back?

This is me, looking disdainfully over my mask at you.

Yes, yes, you do that. Perhaps tomorrow I'll give you a mirror so we can share in your disdain together.
scienceho: (finger point)

[personal profile] scienceho 2012-02-11 08:46 am (UTC)(link)
My disdain is thick with the gravy of disappointment.

If this massively important task remains unfinished, dare I ask what you've accomplished in your time here? Aside from shedding a shag carpet and clapping with your feet?
professorlionface: (If you'll direct your attention here...)

Let's be fair now, such luxurious rugs in so rare a shade can fetch a pretty penny to the right buyer!

But, if you simply must know, I've had a school to run.

YOU GOT A JOB AND SETTLED DOWN IN KIDNAPPER LAND?

Stockholm Syndrome is for idiot socialites, not MEN OF SCIENCE, Patty Hearst!
professorlionface: (Um.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-02-11 09:37 am (UTC)(link)
I've been abducted under much worse conditions. In fact, one might almost consider these civil in comparison to what we have at home.

After a year or so, you almost don't mind it.
scienceho: (wide-eyed insulted)

[personal profile] scienceho 2012-02-11 07:10 pm (UTC)(link)
I CALL BULLSHIT AND ALSO SHENANIGANS!

Have you at least attempted to reverse this situation, or are you one of those who simply gave up on your actual life to live in this obnoxious fantasy land? Wilted in the face of adversity? Shrugged off an abduction by claiming God works in mysterious ways or some other such platitudinal hogwash?

Oh, you do get so tiresome at times. If this is your way of broaching disagreement over more personal matters, really Doctor, don't bother pulling your punches.

If you'd really like to know, the most concerted effort against the interdimensional boundaries of our "imprisonment" was accomplished by Stark some years ago. I've seen some of his notes, there shouldn't have been any reason for them to fail, save for one fact.

She's smarter than all of us, present company included. She not only holds all the cards, but she can change your hand at a whim.

You have never known me to pull any punches for any reason, so continue that assumption, if you please.

By 'she,' you mean this Lachesis, this artificial intelligence named after one of the Three Fates, implying that we are to accept her whims as incontrovertible fact and essentially The Word of God.

As she is controlling our entrance and egress, you posit that she is also in all of our heads at all times, and thus is able to know when we are attempting to confound her methods and can adjust accordingly before we can implement our plans. She can implant thoughts in our conscious minds that we believe to be our own, and thus can steer us in the wrong direction and make us believe to the core of us that it is correct.

That is your hypothesis?

professorlionface: (I find myself brimming with thoughts.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-02-12 04:56 am (UTC)(link)
I said nothing of the sort. I can't say how constant her monitoring capabilities are, though she's displayed something of a god complex from what I've seen, and possibly the power to back it up.

Not necessarily to steer you in another direction when she doesn't like the one you're taking, but other actions to impede you insurmountably. As an example, when she discovered Tony's counter-Porter, she detonated it in his face, killing him in the process.
scienceho: (eyebrow raised)

[personal profile] scienceho 2012-02-12 05:06 am (UTC)(link)
Just like that? With nothing but a thought, she outright murders Stark, a task the best technological hardware and Sentinels of Liberty available were never able to do? Or was there an actual methodology to it that could be thwarted if properly anticipated?

We both know Stark is hardly the most keen at keeping his schematics from being hacked or stolen.

You forget, I'm relaying this secondhand. You'll have to talk to him sooner or later, if you want to know more about it. I wasn't even in The City at the time!

Of course, what was I thinking, I'm sure you must have fully reevaluated Newton before considering thermodynamics worth factoring into any of your equations.
scienceho: (science bastard)

[personal profile] scienceho 2012-02-12 07:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Newton has been thoroughly vetted, while I trust no urban legends handed down from imPort to imPort in KIDNAPPER LAND far enough to make me entirely give up on returning to my proper time and place.

Which is on Utopia, punching fools and inventing ice cream generators and space elevators.
professorlionface: (Can't be overly concerned at the moment!)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-02-14 07:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, be my guest if you'd like to contact him to look over his plans yourself!
