(16:52)SonjaOfTheMoon: I know you're trying to be supportive, and I appreciate the attempt, but this is something that I'll have to take care of or not on my own. I'm sorry.
(16:52)metampsychotic: nnnnnnnnnnnnn
(16:52)metampsychotic: it's alright, don't be sorry
(16:53)SonjaOfTheMoon: Thanks.
(16:54)SonjaOfTheMoon: I dunno. I'm basically a big ball of emotions right now. I think I'm going to try to get some shuteye.
(16:55)pwnz0rz: ?
(16:55)pwnz0rz: its like four pm
(16:55)pwnz0rz: u ok?
(16:56)SonjaOfTheMoon: My sleep cycle's really off. Well, it's not just me. The atmosphere recycler's on the fritz again and it's got everyone feeling off.
(16:56)metampsychotic: oh g-d
(16:56)metampsychotic: that sounds bad D:
(16:57)*SonjaOfTheMoon shrugs.*
(16:57)SonjaOfTheMoon: Probably. I dunno. Either someone'll sort it out or we'll seal off the damaged sector and move to another one.
(16:57)SonjaOfTheMoon: Stuff that can kill you out of the blue is just kind of part of living up here. A technical blip that may become a localized threat at some indefinite point in the future just doesn't register on that scale.
(16:58)pwnz0rz: holy s h i t
(16:59)pwnz0rz: dude
(16:59)SonjaOfTheMoon: Huh?
(17:00)pwnz0rz: i dunno
(17:00)pwnz0rz: i feel like i should say something
(17:00)metampsychotic: sonjaaaaaaaa
(17:01)metampsychotic: please don't die D:
(17:02)SonjaOfTheMoon: I haven't yet, have I?
(17:02)pwnz0rz: dude
(17:02)pwnz0rz: i never reallized it was this bad up there
(17:02)*SonjaOfTheMoon shrugs.*
(17:03)SonjaOfTheMoon: I guess I've never thought about it so much. I mean, it's been part of my life since, like, forever.
(17:05)pwnz0rz: i guess...
(17:04)SonjaOfTheMoon: Some places prepare for radiation spikes or tornadoes or bombs. It's the same idea, just with lifeboats and an SAR ship instead of Gramma's basement.
(17:05)pwnz0rz: i dunno, i think theres a difference between a tornado and literally not having air
(17:05)pwnz0rz: you can get away from a tornado
(17:06)*SonjaOfTheMoon shrugs (again).*
(17:06)metampsychotic: sonjaaaaaaaaaaaaa D:
(17:06)metampsychotic: you should come to earth and hang out with us
(17:06)SonjaOfTheMoon: Gods no!
(17:07)SonjaOfTheMoon: Sorry, that would probably kill me.
(17:07)SonjaOfTheMoon: >_<
(17:08)pwnz0rz: sup?
(17:08)SonjaOfTheMoon: Gravity.
(17:09)SonjaOfTheMoon: I don't know enough developmental biology to explain it all that well (yes, I'm admitting to not knowing something - try not to drop dead from shock) but the short version is that my body is accustomed to lunar gravity and couldn't easily handle yours.
(17:09)SonjaOfTheMoon: Low bone density, underdeveloped musculature... some of my organs would have trouble, too.
(17:10)SonjaOfTheMoon: I'd need a lot of braces and weekly medical check-ins.
(17:12)pwnz0rz: holy carp
(17:12)pwnz0rz: (thats not a typo, im dodging the filter and talking about it b/c idk what else to say)
(17:13)SonjaOfTheMoon: It doesn't really affect much.
(17:14)metampsychotic: but you can never come home!! D:
(17:15)SonjaOfTheMoon: I mean, iirc, I live closer to my birthplace than you do.
(17:16)metampsychotic: okay, true
(17:16)metampsychotic: there's a difference between moving for school and being stuck on another planet though!
(17:17)metampsychotic: i guess it's not "another" if you were born there
(17:17)metampsychotic: still :(
(17:18)SonjaOfTheMoon: Strictly speaking, it's not a "planet" either, but I know what you meant.
(17:18)SonjaOfTheMoon: It would be nice to visit sometime. I dunno, I worry about my health, and also about making friends.
(17:19)metampsychotic: huh?
(17:19)SonjaOfTheMoon: I wouldn't want to stay for too long (couldn't, really) so anyone I meet down there, I'd probably never get to see again.
(17:20)pwnz0rz: sonja
(17:20)pwnz0rz: i think ive learned more about you in the last hour then ever in our friend ship so far
(17:21)SonjaOfTheMoon: I've got a birthday coming up. Those always put me in a contemplative mood.
(17:21)SonjaOfTheMoon: I don't think either of you are the most social people (no offense intended), but I have NEVER had the opportunity to invite someone to a birthday party. Okay, there's ONE other kid, but seriously, I hate that guy.
(17:22)metampsychotic: you've mentioned him, yeah. isn't there something up with his brain?
(17:22)SonjaOfTheMoon: Yup, some kind of genetic disorder really screwed up his brain development. I dunno, I don't want to sound like a [censored]hole, but...
(17:23)SonjaOfTheMoon: Even given that, I can't overlook the way he treats people, myself included.
(17:23)SonjaOfTheMoon: And that's more than you ever wanted to know about why I hate birthdays.
(17:24)pwnz0rz: :(
(17:24)metampsychotic: are you sure that's all? if there's something else going on...
(17:24)SonjaOfTheMoon: I'm fine.
(17:24)SonjaOfTheMoon: I'm just contemplative and exhausted. Not a great combination. Also, probably cortisol and caffeine. >_>
(17:25)SonjaOfTheMoon: I'm going to get ready for bed. Thanks for listening, you two.
(17:26)metampsychotic: np!
(17:26)pwnz0rz: wait
(17:26)pwnz0rz: didnt u say ur boss wnated you?
(17:27)SonjaOfTheMoon: Oh [censored] me. Yes.
(17:27)SonjaOfTheMoon: Gods, why now...
(17:27)SonjaOfTheMoon: ...you know what, I'm going to get to that tomorrow. It can't be anything important.
(17:28)SonjaOfTheMoon: Tomorrow, and most likely at 2:00 AM when I wake up with an inevitable [censored] headache because someone [censored] up the air processors, but whatever.
(17:29)SonjaOfTheMoon: But thanks for the heads-up. G'night.
(17:29)metampsychotic: good night, you!
(17:30)System: User SonjaOfTheMoon has disconnected.
(17:33)pwnz0rz: well that sure puts a damper on the mood
(17:34)pwnz0rz: do u think i should talk 2 ep about this?
(17:35)metampsychotic: ehhhhhhhh...
(17:35)metampsychotic: maybe?
(17:35)metampsychotic: she'll bring it up when she wants to, im not sure we need to do that for her
(17:36)metampsychotic: but i don't know
(17:36)metampsychotic: :(

Xenocartographer (Official Note): Is the moon base going to explode? Place your bets now, people!
Seabiscuit: Wahhh... D: Xeno! If you kill off Sonja, we are gonna have words, mister! ...Wow, I didn't even consider how much trouble someone could have after having grown up on the moon. Gosh... I guess there's no fancy gravity making machines, huh?:D edit delete reply
Catalystyc: I've read The Martian, Seveneves, Rendezvous With Rama, the slightly related Neuromancer, the more abstractly related Core (By Paul Preuss), and the lesser known Shivering World (probably a few more with related content that I cannot recall atm). I LOVE stories about barely holding together in a hostile environment (^'u'). This. (>*_*)> This is good stuff. Not to mention this flows really well with the resource taxed state of the world. As much as my inner sadist (;'_') enjoys it, however, you should really send someone to give Sonja a hug. edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Aww, thank you! Always a nice thing to wake up to :D And ohmygosh you've read Rama??? *nerdy high five* edit delete reply
Catalystyc: *returns nerdy high five* If only the sequel wasn't trash. *sighs* edit delete reply
Dellis: Every time someone says "It can't be anything that important", something goes horribly wrong somewhere and everything explodes. Come on, Sonja! You're a nerd! You should know these things! edit delete reply
