-- ain't puttin' up with this again.

[ the camera jostles a little before the feed becomes steady, focusing on lillian crawley's aggravated face.

it's hard to tell what's making her mad -- the list of things that could set her off probably stretches around the earth twice -- but you might notice on the couch behind her is a humanoid woman with vibrant blue dreadlocks and white eyes. she's dressed in a large sweater and little else -- and judging by the scratches on her arms and her throat, it was a fight for lil to get even that on her.
]

I ain't. Someone else can babysit her goddamn bot ass. If she thinks I'm gonna let her stay here after she comes waltzin' in, tellin' me my husband's really gone an' she's upset about it --

[ lil purses her lips. her face is angry, but the slight break in her voice suggests she's choosing anger over more miserable feelings right now. ]

Someone come an' take her. Before she blows her own goddamn head off again.
professorlionface: (I find myself brimming with thoughts.)

Glad to hear it. In the meantime, it may be worth exploring just what effects this current state has on you. It's more the psychological and chemical I'm curious about, how the processes of an organic body may affect your mental state.

[ after a bit of a pause: ]

Yes.
In general, I find it mildly disorienting to be in this form.
Though not nearly so much as my first time.
I may be suffering from an adjustment disorder.
But I will manage it until it passes.

It could be more than an adjustment disorder, I've had patients suffering from similar situations in the past, though more permanent, and dysmorphia isn't always where it ends. Unless your synthetic brain mimics the processes of the brain to a chemical accuracy, there are numerous new conditions it may be applying.

Granted, you have experienced it once already, so maybe you're ready. But I still think it would be to your benefit to let me do a basic examination.

You may examine me, if that is what you believe is best.
But I assure you that I will manage regardless.
professorlionface: (Blah blah blah.)

There's a difference between managing and thriving.

With all due respect, Dr. McCoy.
The person that I love most is gone.
I do not think that thriving is something I am currently capable of.
professorlionface: (I'll take your word for it.)

And with similar respect, Danger, you're by no means the first to go through something like this. We learn to live with it.

I would not be so presumptuous as to imply that I am.
Regardless, I require time.
professorlionface: (I'd prefer not to talk about it.)

Time is fair, we all need time. I'm mostly looking to see if there's anything involved that might make time not quite enough.

Acknowledged.
I am available for examination at your convenience.
We will proceed as necessary in accordance with your diagnosis.
professorlionface: (Always hidden depths to consider...)

And we'll take care of our man in Nepal once that's all settled.

Confirmed.

[ then, at length: ]

If there is something wrong with me, what will we do?
professorlionface: (I'll have to think about this.)

That will depend on the something. We'll try to treat it, of course, at least in whatever way will be effective until your powers return.

[ after a while: ]

I am wary of treatment, Hank.
professorlionface: (Deeper than you realize.)

I understand, and I would be reluctant to prescribe medication, given the newer and likely temporary state of your biology. If anything should arise, we'll discuss your best options before deciding on anything.

[personal profile] heartlessglitch 2013-05-02 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
Understood.
Then I will meet with you for my examination and prepare to join you to retrieve Cross.
Do you require anything else?
professorlionface: (I'll have to think about this.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-05-03 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
No, aside from that, just take a few days off. I think you have enough to deal with right now as it is.
