[ there's the sound of clattering as the video comes on, like someone knocked the communicator over but is obviously too preoccupied to notice. even though there's only a crooked view of someone's feet, rictor's voice is raised and clearly audible. ]

I do not know. [shatterstar sounds defensive, but like he's rather missing the point:] Why would this upset you? You were not here.

Why would it upset me? [ there's a tone of incredulity in rictor's voice. ] Oh, wait. That's right. You wouldn't understand because you have no concept of what it feels like to only want to be with one person.

Apparently I've been randomly selected as the lucky winner for a surprise trip to the most uncreatively named place in this or any other universe. Great. Thank you, cosmic forces. Bueno. Really.
