|Grey's vague memories||Daran... / The doctors say you're not making much progress. / You know, we try and we try. There's only so much we can do. / Georgette says it's like you're not even trying. / Try to consider OUR family's feelings. / What are you doing back there..? / DARAN!|
|A small step for mankind, but a giant leap for us||Voices: Daran...Daran... / Kyotoshi: Kid... / Hey, Kid! / Kyotoshi: We're there. / Jet: A small step for mankind, but a giant leap for us? / Kyotoshi: All ashore. / Jet: So, should I bring the car back around tonight? / Kyotoshi: Nah, I dun' need it. But let's hear the rules. / Jet: Full tank, no wrecks. / Kyotoshi: And no hookers. / Jet: Aw, man..! I hate you, you know that? / Kyotoshi: There will be no whores in my car. / Kyotoshi: I know what you're thinking. / Kyotoshi: Sure, it's a ghost town right now... / But that's just cause it's mid-day. Everyone's out workin or sleepin or...whatever... / Kyotoshi: You'll meet my friends, dun worry. / Kyotoshi: D'you have a limp there, dude? / Kyotoshi: We're almost home, though.|
|What not to do with mysterious fridge items||Kyotoshi: So, here it is. / Mi casa, y ahora tu casa. / Sorry for the look of it. But hey, Lyika says you're blind, right? Not like you care, huh? / Kyotoshi: This is your place now, so make yourself home-like. / Kyotoshi: Just don't...ya know. Uhm. Die on something. / Kyotoshi: Hope you ain't a picky eater. / Kyotoshi: Uh...You better not be. / (note: a neatly folded towel) / Kyotoshi: ? / ... / Kyotoshi: AUGH! CRAIKA! Sell that one to the museum! I think I need a trash bag for this job. Yeah. ...And a drink. And...ugh. GAH. My tongue's been RAPED. Call the cops! Holy shit, how long has this been here?|
|Called out of his Shell||Kyotoshi: Lyika...She's my sister. The one who took care of you before now? Hekshanians put the family name and the first name together for nicknames, sometimes. / Grey: ..What? / Kyotoshi: Uhm...Uni isn't your first language, is it? / Grey: No. / Kyotoshi: Ooh-kay. Let's start on me. I'm Kyotoshi, but you can call me Kyo. My sister's name is Soshika. / Kyotoshi: You following so far? So anyway, you're gonna stay here with me for... / Hey, wait. / Kyotoshi: Lemme see your foot, Kid. I think you're hurt there. / Grey: NON! / Kyotoshi: Whoa, calm down. I wasn't gonna hurt you or anything. Hey- / Kyotoshi: Grey- hey, Kid. Listen to my voice. It's me. It's Kyo. I'm not going to hurt you. I promise. / Kyotoshi: I've got nothing in my hands. Here, feel. / Kyotoshi: There you go. See? / Kyotoshi: So you okay now? We back on the same page? Now lemme see your foot. I promise I'll be careful.|
|Apt yet blunt||Kyotoshi: Ah, Craika... Well, that explains th' limp. Guess Lyika forgot that ya needed shoes, huh?
/ God, that's gotta hurt though, dun' it?
/ Grey: What?
/ Kyotoshi: Your foot, Kid! Can't you feel that? / Grey: ?
/ Kyotoshi: Stay here, I'm gonna get some- / <
|you can't hide from it||Kyotoshi: So uh- Where you from, anyways? 'Mean, hell, even *I* speak Uni okay. / Grey: ... You called me. / Kyotoshi: Huh? Oh, yeah. A couple'a times. / Crai-ka, you're wicked skinny. / Kyotoshi: Guess...uh...we gotta go food shopping. / If you don't mind that. / Grey: What? / Kyotoshi: I mean, s'your choice. D'you wanna go with me or stay here? / Grey: There's a war going on. / Kyotoshi: Keh, who cares? You're here, not there. What do YOU wanna do? / Grey: ...I'd like to sleep. / Kyotoshi: Yeah...who cares? / Kyotoshi: I ain't no good at this. / Keep playing this way, but it can't last. Not even Alice got stuck in Wonderland. / It'll catch up to us eventually. But for right now, let's play like it's utopia. For a little while, anyway...|
|Best not to think about it||Kyotoshi: Why the hell did I agree to this? I'm not a doctor. I don't know anything about what this kid needs or how to take care of him. / I knew that BEFORE I even agreed. So why'd I do it? It wasn't so Lyika would forgive me. Heh...I know she'll never do that, now. So maybe this is just how I operate, how I go on living. / I can't control what I do anymore. Just like I took in Jet, just like I dated Zara- it's all like a program that I follow in my head without a choice. And maybe, since I screw up every time, I drink to ignore it. Or maybe as an excuse for failing or... / This is a dangerous train of thought. / Even if I am a machine, no one needs to know it but me. / Kyotoshi: No one need know. / Kyotoshi: Hey, Daan. / Daan: Hey, Kyo. Comin' to the show this weekend? / Kyotoshi: Maybes. I might bring a friend, too. / Daan: Ah, grand. / Kyo, you okay? You seem kinda down. / Kyotoshi: Jus' drinkin again. C'mon, is this the face of a troubled man?|
|The nightmare is just beginning||Daan: Guess not. / Kyotoshi: Hey, ya wanna hear an old joke? / Kyotoshi: So this string walks into a bar and- / ON YOUR FEET / WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?! / WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU PLAYING AT?! / YOU'RE A MACHINE / YOU ARE *OUR* MACHINE / YOU HAVE NO FEELING. YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO FEEL. / AND IF WE TELL YOU TO KILL XENOS- / YOU WILL KILL THE GODDAMN XENOS.|
|pavlovian child||And why not? They seem to smell you're ours. / Your make stinks of labs, tests, tamper- / Oh, what could be wrong? Little machine shaking? / Grey: ...I won't. / HA! That's a laugh. / What choice do you think you have?! / You're our music box. / Our little toy. / And when we want to... / We'll wind you up... / Haha... / You'll play the tune you're meant to play.|
|u dibla||Oh my. What now. / Grey: I won't do this. / Suicide? / Please. YOU can't commit suicide. / We've gone over this. / Grey: O Ruler who guides me on my journey and oversees every action- / [words here are cut off partially]***to us when we order you to do something. / And we have ordered you not to kill yourself. / 'Sides. You don't want to go to hell. / Animals have no souls, you know. So you'll never see heaven anyway. / Now quit your drama, and do what you're meant to do. / And stop your bleeding. They can smell it. / Bekir: U DIBLA! RUN! U DIBLA! / Play your song. / We promise you can be happy. / At least, you'll never know if we're lying.|
|masochist||You missed! Hmph. Looks like your gears are worn. / As thrilling a conversation as it has been... / There is a pricetag on everything. / Your little mind can't take much more. / Now, see... / Grey: Ma...Marie? / Much more of this... / And you'll be back in your little delusion. / You know your flaw? / You enjoy this.|
|a fine nothing||Grey: I do not enjoy this. / Grey: This is not who I am. / Grey: This is not what I want. / Kyotoshi: Hey, you sleep okay? / Grey: Fine. / Kyotoshi: You looked like you were having a nightmare. / I tried t' wake you up, but it didn't do much. / Grey: I'm fine. / Kyotoshi: I been tryin to read Lyika's notes. / You're blind so you can't see, but man, they make no sense. Read like a 13 year old's journal. / Kyotoshi: Prolly better to learn about'cha the old fashioned way, right? / So what'd you dream about? / Grey: Nothing. / Kyotoshi: Nothin, huh? / I've had some pretty vicious nothings in my time. / Anyways, 'm goin down to the store. You comin? / Grey: Okay. / Kyotoshi: Looks like we're gonna get rained on. / Eh, it don't matter. The store ain't far. It might let up by then.|
|here kitty kitty||Kyotoshi: Now Kid, you gotta stay near me. I mean, most folks're cool, but yer still...y'know. You. Human. They don't like that. / Grey: Why? / Kyotoshi: They just don't. Would you like a race if they ruined your life? / Grey: No. / Kyotoshi: Yuh, me neither. / Turn here. / Cultist: Psst... / Cultist: Hey Kitty-Kitty, I don't mind you. You like me, don't you? You love me, right? / Cultist: We know what you've done. You've been a bad cat, but if you come with us... / Cultist: Here, kitty kitty|
|advice to live by||Kyotoshi: Hey, Kid, I wantcha to meet-
/ Grey? / Kyotoshi: Oh, Craika. It's those weird cultists again. / Kyotoshi: Too far to run, they'd be gone.
/ Damn, gotta call attention somehow or they'll just grab him and run. Wait! / <
|like a child||Kyotoshi: This is so weird, this sense I get from him. / And it's not just my brother complex. I know that. / He doesn't talk, but it's like I hear him... / Grey:? / Kyotoshi: Like he's a kid inside, and he's been let out into the world for the first time. / Kyotoshi: Hey, that's hot. Don't burn yourself while I'm checkin us out. / Grey: ? / Clerk: Lypha, you lookin to turn your life around? / Kyotoshi: Huh? / Clerk: Well you're never in here, and if you are you never buy food. / Kyotoshi: Hey, whatever makes you feel better, man. / Grey: ... / Gangster: Didn't even jump. Damn, your nerves must just be dead. / Gangster: Lypha, we got something we need to discuss... / You and us.|
|choose your battles||Gangster: We ain't here to start trouble. Lypha, everyone knows you. Everyone LIKES you well enough, cause you help everybody an' bother nobody. / You like to take in off-worlders like Jet, help them get back on their feet here. And that's cool, we respect that. / Gangster: But I think the booze has rotted out your brain, pal... / Cause you're walkin' round with a Human. / Kyotoshi: I dunno, he seems pretty harmless to me. / Gangster: Cut the crap, Lypha. You lost same as us to their kind. / Hell, you lost worse. / Kyotoshi: Heh, you make it sound like I'm marryin' him. / Gangster: We're not here to fight with you. / Kyotoshi: Well... / You sure as hell ain't gonna be fightin' with him. / Kyotoshi: So the first punch will probably be to the stomach. It hurts already, so why not?|
|who's saving you?||Grey: Without a weapon... / Grey: To kill them all... / Grey: Will be a little harder... / Grey: Huh? / Grey: (string of swear words in various languages) / Kyotoshi: Go! I got a hold of him! / Gangster: Harmless, huh? / Our business here is done. / But you watch out, Lypha. That Human will dig your grave. / Grey: I'LL KILL THEM! / Kyotoshi: Whoa, calm down, Psycho-boy. / Grey: LET GO! / Grey: WHY?! / Kyotoshi: Kid... / Can we talk about this later?|
|from lion to kitten||Clerk: Hey, Lypha, you okay? They hit you pretty hard. / Kyotoshi: Yeah, I'm... fine. / Kid...can you grab the bags? / Grey: WHY?! / Kyotoshi: Man... / And I thought this would be a quick little grocery run. / Is everything this complicated when you're around? / Kyotoshi: Alright! Alright! / I'll tell you why I kept you from fighting. / (Just quit making that pissed-off face.) / Kyotoshi: But can it wait three blocks? / I'm kinda in a lot of pain, here. / Down the street... / Kyotoshi: I'll only be a minute. Just wait with the food. / Grey: NO!! / Kyotoshi: Listen, I'm not gonna run off. And nobody'll mess with you. / I'll be back in five minutes, I promise. But I gotta shake this hurt. / So please, just sit here and wait? / Can you do that for me? / Kyotoshi: I'll take that as a yes. Just keep calm, kid, it'll be okay.|
|dodging the question||Earth boy, I see you there. / Tattered coat, tangled hair. / do you think? / do you think anyone will really care? / Grey: Why? / Kyotoshi: ...Man! / You're not gonna let that drop, are you? / Kyotoshi: ...I stop you from killing people and you look at me like a scolded puppy. / Kyotoshi: Well, there were what? Two big guys? / Grey: Three. / Kyotoshi: My point is, you're not a big guy, exactly. / Grey: Neither are you. / Kyotoshi: I dunno, I was under the impression that the guy who didn't fight was the stronger one. / Grey: ...No. / Kyotoshi: Something tells me you dunno what I'm talking about.|
|all joking aside||Kyotoshi: ... / Man, I hate doing this. / Drinking outside and alone. / Grey: But I'm here. / Kyotoshi: Heh. You're so literal. Never be a butler. / Grey: ? / Kyotoshi: Regardless / Of what was going to happen to me... / Kyotoshi: I didn't want to see you get hurt, kid.|
|insane, but not unobservant.||Kyotoshi: C'mon. Let's get outta here. / Grey: ... / Kyotoshi: Hey, kid, dun worry. Got 'nuffa this shit at home, so... / Kyotoshi: 'N so castles made of sand~ / Kyotoshi: Wash int' the sea~ / Eventually~ / Grey: Drunk. / Kyotoshi: ... / Grey: ? / Grey: ! / Grey: Really drunk. / Kyotoshi: Shhhaddap, yer s'osed t' be cute n' not knowin whu's wrong with me. / Grey: Where are we... / Kyotoshi: Oh...cra'ka... s'right, yer blind. Les' jus...uhm... / Grey: Sit? / Kyotoshi: Mm..yeah. / Hey, look, s'our house.|
|best left unsaid||Grey: What am I doing? What am I here for? I'm obsolite. I'm worthless here. I shouldn't be here. I'm doing nothing. I'll say nothing. I want to be worth something. I am cast off. No one needed me. Useless. / Some things are better left unsaid.|
|role reversal||Kyotoshi: So... / What's all this stuff? Didja... d'no... / Kyotoshi: S'not like's yer fault. I mean, sometimes- / Grey: I don't want to talk. / Kyotoshi: ... / If I could be~ / Grey: Stop. / Kyotoshi: Mmf. S'rry. / Grey: Can we go now? / Kyotoshi: Yeah yeah yeah... / Kyotoshi: Ahem. / Grey: Lousy. / Kyotoshi: Shh. M' fakin sobriety. / Grey: You're failing. / Grey: ? / Kyotoshi: Whoa! / Kyotoshi: Hey...I thought I asked y't' hold that.|
|Inhuman||Kyo: Great... / It waited. / The pain waited til I was sober. / It couldn't be the shakes, it had to be this. / Is this even happening to me? / Is this my body? / Kyo: It all feels so far off. / Every time. / Grey: ... / You're sick. / Kyo: How...how you know that? / Grey: Smell the blood. / Grey: Go to a doctor. / Kyo: Heh... / I think that's the most words I've heard you say at once. / Grey: I'll help. / Grey: You need a doctor. / Kyo: I don't need anything. / It's happened before. It was fine then. / Grey: You're sick. / Kyo: I am not sick. / I'll be fine in a few hours. / Grey: That's why you don't. / Kyo: Craika, you're gonna be this chatty at least sit down.|
|Inhuman||Grey: You need a doctor. / Kyo: Kid, why do you keep saying that? / Kyo: You cringe everytime I say the word. / Why do you want me to go so bad if you're so scared? / Grey: They wouldn't... / hurt you. / Grey: You're not... / Grey: ... / Kyo: Well / Lemme just tell ya / Why I don't like to go.|
|Inhuman||Kyo: This all happened after Lyika...Soshika...left. / I'd started...y'know. Drinking. And we'd fought over it, so she left. / We'd had this Rulerist assigned social worker who'd come around. She wasn't so bad, but it was just her job and she was overworked all the time. We weren't the only survivors. / So I kept a lotta stuff from her. She didn't need to worry bout it. / But this one day she came by unscheduled and unannounced... / Kyo: It was all an accident, but... / Kyo: Bein alone in that house... / Prolly wasn't such a good idea. / Kyo: It was a house of ghosts. / Kyo: So you start thinking weird stupid stuff. Like maybe you're a ghost too. / Blah blah blah... / And that's where I screwed up.|
|Inhuman||Kyo: I swear to you guys- / It was just an accident. / Doctor: You're lucky. / With your blood alcohol you would have bled to death. / Doctor: But at your age, with your people, the vices are normal. Practically expected. / That's not the problem here. / Doctor: Have you been having trouble sleeping? / Kyo: Fine, I guess. / Doctor: How's your appetite? Your social life? / Kyo: I dunno. Normal. / Social Worker: That's not true. / Social Worker: After your parents died, you spent a lot of time with your friends. / Now you never go out. / Kyo: I didn't mean to hurt myself, come on... / Doctor: Listen, son, I know this is difficult. / But what happened indicates to us there's a bigger issue. / Doctor: I'd like you to stay in this hospital. / Just for a couple days, to see if you feel any better. Sound good?|
|Inhuman||Kyo: These are the times you wish you could avoid. / But you can't. / Kyo: They play like they've already happened. / A bad movie. It just doesn't seem real. / Kyo: You pretend you're sleeping. / If this is all a dream, you'll forget it soon. / Kyo: But it's not- you won't. / Kyo: So you go home. / They left the door open after they got you. / Kyo: You pack up your things... / Kyo: You get back in the car... / and you leave. / Kyo: Everything now exists to remind you of what you did. / You're stuck forever repeating that one moment of fatal stupidity.|
|Inhuman||Kyo: There's two beds? What the @#%$ is this, a summer camp? / Nurse: It's because of hospital policy. We gave you a room-mate to conserve space. / Don't worry, you won't be put with a schizophrenic. / Nurse: It's not so bad. / You can shut your door, write, smoke... not inside. / Kyo: Mmhmm. / Nurse: It'll be okay. / I know you just want to get settled in. / Your doctor will be in in a minute. / Nurse: Oh... don't unpack yet. Trust me on that. / Nurse: If you need any help, just call. I'm closing your door. / Kyo: Yeah yeah...thanks. / Kyo: So this is the new territory, huh? / Kyo: Guess it could be worse. / But I should get to work. / Kyo: At least I get a room with a view. / Maybe I can finally get some sleep.|
