[ The video turns on to display the Norman Osborn Hospital of Psychiatric Evaluation, Norman Osborn himself and the warden, Danger, standing in front of it.

Norman has his trademark smirk in place, though there's a hint of annoyance in his expression -- a hint that's at least not at all present in his tone when he starts speaking:
]


Afternoon. As most of you know, I'm Norman Osborn, and this behind me is the Norman Osborn Hospital of Psychiatric Evaluation, subject in recent months and weeks to both terrorist attacks and patches in the security perimeter. Obviously, I was not a bit happy about these incidents befalling such an important institution, nor was my associate here.

[ He indicates Danger. ]

This is the hospital's warden and primary security consultant; she, under my supervision, has been heading a total revamp of the facility's security, fixing what had worn down and overhauling entirely what needed rebuilding from the ground up. But I won't go on-- she can speak for herself.

[ He moves aside for Danger to take the stage. She steps forward. Aside from a slight pinch in her eyebrows that suggests a hint of impatience or something like it, her face is passive and her voice is brisk:]

The majority of our upgrades are structural and technological in nature, with components designed by myself and my colleague. Improved protocols and equipment will be implemented, in addition to new treatment and release programs. However, I will decline to confuse you with the details-- it suffices to say that the breeches in security at the Osborn facility will not be reoccurring.

[ She folds her arms over her chest loosely, her tone becoming pointed: ]

If you should find yourself in our care, I suggest you put thoughts of escape from your mind. Otherwise, I will personally have to disappoint you.

[ Smiling off to her side, Norman claps his hands a couple times in a (perhaps mildly patronizing) signal of approval. ]

Indeed. I hope you all feel in safer and better hands knowing that these problems are being swiftly and successfully contained. There has been no staff turnover, but I'll be taking firmer role in both management and supervision to ensure everything proceeds smoothly. At our current pace everything should be completed in less than a month. Thank you, Danger.

[ But despite the conclusion Norman still appears as if he's about to go on, and after a moment he does: ]

Also, briefly, in other news: I'm sure some of the student-aged populous may have already read online long ago about the undergraduate scholarship my company is sponsoring, but as the deadline draws nearer I'd be remiss not to mention it myself. Consider it a reminder -- but anyone entering college in the Fall with an interest in any science might consider applying if they haven't already. The deadline is still July 1st.

That's all.

( OOC: The details of the NOHoPE security revamp can be read in full HERE. Information on the scholarship can be found HERE & anyone interested can just drop a comment to that post saying so! )

[It's a weird juxtaposition, seeing a colleague next to...well, him. Hank isn't entirely sure how to approach it.]

So, I assume the purpose of this will be to incorporate fail-safes to prevent this from happening again? And perhaps also the ones that led to its resolution.

And who holds the final key to it?
professorlionface: (Blah blah blah.)

This despite your taking a firmer role in the hospital's affairs.
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)

Just that, even as a former patient, I can't help but appreciate the irony.
professorlionface: (I'll explain this slowly.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-19 08:38 am (UTC)(link)
For those who can't recognize the irony, perhaps.

I made no implication, just a simple observation.

I think we could all learn a lesson in harmlessness. From that, we could better help your patients down that road, themselves.

Yes. I have been very thorough. Containment is my specialty.
professorlionface: (Sounds questionable)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-18 05:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Of course. And I don't doubt that you'll be able to keep to that. Really, I was surprised they managed to break past you to begin with.

[personal profile] heartlessglitch 2013-06-18 05:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Rest assured that no one is more disappointed in this fact than I am. While it is hardly an excuse for failure, I have been unable to function optimally for the past few months, even by the standards of this organic body.

I am working to remedy this.
professorlionface: (I find myself brimming with thoughts.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-18 05:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Have we determined yet why the change seems to be holding longer than it usually might? Two months is well beyond documented standards.
heartlessglitch: (pic#4804807)

[personal profile] heartlessglitch 2013-06-18 06:04 pm (UTC)(link)
It's a fact that's been preoccupying me, but I am unable to determine any exact cause. I have run several inconclusive tests. I see no reason I should not have simply woken up restored to my proper form, as I did the previous time. I am in good physical health, despite my moods, and I have not interfered with Lachesis in such a way that she would seek to punish me.
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-18 07:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Perhaps it isn't a case of your powers failing to return because the parameters of them might have changed entirely. If you'd like, I could go over the data to offer my own conclusions.
heartlessglitch: (pic#4804816)

[personal profile] heartlessglitch 2013-06-18 09:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[ after a beat: ]

Yes. I suppose your professional opinion could offer some insight.
professorlionface: (I'll explain this slowly.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-18 09:30 pm (UTC)(link)
I'll be out of town tomorrow, but hopefully everything there will be handled by the weekend. It will be my first priority once I return.
heartlessglitch: (pic#4804812)

[personal profile] heartlessglitch 2013-06-19 01:28 am (UTC)(link)
It is not something I wish to press on you. I have already existed this way for several weeks. A little more time will arguably make no significant difference.
professorlionface: (Hmm?)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-19 02:04 am (UTC)(link)
Perhaps it won't. But I don't want you to think you aren't a priority, either. I may have some important work to take care of, but you're important as well.
heartlessglitch: (Default)

[personal profile] heartlessglitch 2013-06-19 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
[ a small pause ]

Thank you, Hank. I am appreciative.
professorlionface: (pic#5893026)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-19 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
Don't worry about it. If you need anything, I want you to know I'll be here to help.

[Especially if her alternative would be going to Osborn.]
