First topic message reminder :

Skye nodded and smiled a little "It's a little scary though, when you only see your own kind then see a city with the others."

"Your brother seems so jumpy, he must have a hard time dealing with other people's thoughts," Ethan said. He nodded, "I think most of the people on Vestia went to the protest. A few might have stayed here, I'd guess Sawna and Esk did, but otherwise there probably aren't many people here right now. It's been quiet in the library all day." Not that he minded that, quiet was pretty relaxing.

Silence nodded "Brother not good with noise in head." She didn't fully comprehend Ivor's issues to be fair. "spend too long in hospital, lots of bad minds." She shook her head. "Don't think did him good."

Ethan frowned. "A hospital? You mean the kind for crazy people?" That was rough, he didn't like imagining the sort of things you'd hear in the minds of people at one of those places. Although maybe mental hospitals weren't quite as awful in this universe as they were in his universe? Hmm. "That explains a lot."

"Stupid imperium," Ethan said. "It's not that hard to tell whether someone's nuts, or reading your mind." He frowned, "Although sometimes people are both mind readers and crazy. But Ivor can't have been like that."

Ethan shook his head, he still thought that it was dumb for someone to not tell the difference between telepathy and insanity. Of course, he never had been the greatest at putting himself in other people's shoes. "Well here he is, the way he is, I guess. Too late to give him a normal childhood now."

"Guess some of the people here are telepaths, so there are worse places to go to learn," Ethan said. "Starr seems like she'd make a good teacher, if she's not too busy ruling."

Silence looked thoughtful. "difficult to teach, he very scared. I try, Mother try... he... not very good student."

"That is a problem," Ethan agreed. "Hopefully someone can figure out how to help, Ivor looks like he needs it."

Ethan nodded. Poor Ivor, he kinda felt sorry for the guy. "So do you want any audiobooks or something while you're here?" He asked. Hey, this was a library after all. And he was better at books than sympathy.

Ellie was doing target practice in Vestia's gun range, experience had taught her that it was wise to keep your shooting skills honed.

Silence looked around at all the books, then shook her head. "no."

---

Esk had sat and watched the news unfold with mild, dulled interest. He had no real vested interest in this beyond 'slavery is wrong', and he wasn't the sort to really care about groups as a whole. But he watched because if something went wrong he needed to be sure the crew was going to get back safe.

The more he watched, the more convinced he was they were gonna come back angry, exhausted and miserable. Not a good combo. He made a note to avoid Kay, more than he already did, and maybe not be a dick to James for a few days. You know, just to avoid getting punched. Ahem.

At least he was learning some vague people skills huh?

Between news casts he tried to make sense of this psych book, but it was really dry reading.

---

Mourn may have finally hit a breakthrough on the united code, he just needed someone to test it on. Unfortunately all his willing volunteers were a bit distracted. Dang.

So he went to sleep instead by way of celebration.

Kooshie wrote:"This isn't entirely unexpected," Asher said unhappily. "It's only rational for these corporations to try to round us up so they can apply their new update. If there's a chance they can lead the public to believe we're all defective, they'll try it."
"I'm not sure they'll succeed in the long run though. You all saw how many androids protested today, from so many model years, from so many manufacturers. The police recorded all our serial numbers at the protest, they can see that this isn't some isolated event. If the Terran Empire investigates seriously at all, they're going to find it very fishy that the manufacturers are claiming every single one of their androids to be defective all of a sudden, and I think they'll end up siding with us and ending the recalls."

"But until then, people get brainwashed," James said grimly.

Asher nodded. "That's true. I think Starr's right, we should try contacting our friend and see if she can help. We want to limit damage as much as we can while we're waiting for the Terran Empire to make up their minds."

They'd probably reach Vestia around then.
Starr nodded then smiled "If she could simply re-route the androids to an address I could give her, that would be good to keep them safe while the Terrans make up their mind."

Silence smiled weirdly and moved away. "Bye bye." She'd got what she wanted out of him.

Asher was almost grateful that Matt seemed so upset about this. After those months when he'd been so reluctant to see Asher as a sentient being, it was nice to know that he and his kind were recognized.

He followed Starr onto Vestia, nodding when she spoke, "Yes, sending the androids to another location might be a good option. My concern would be whether people might be distracted from the cause when they found out androids were going missing, but it still might be the best option."

"Better than them being turned from slaves to brainwashed slaves," James muttered.

~~
"Bye." Ethan shook his head, Silence was so weird.
He'd snoop through the recently checked out books list for a while, then read the news. Damn, that stupid protest was going to be a mess, wasn't it? Ugh.

Starr nodded and pulled out her tablet to start making a call, moving away from the others a bit as the dragons and others walked on board.

"Celia, just who I was hoping to talk to. Is the line secure?" Starr asked cautiously. "A couple of friends of mine visited you a little while ago and we had a question."

Kay waited anxious for how this would all go.

Matt too, waited to hear news. He hated the helpless feeling. Eugh.

"Yes, it's secure," Celia said, just as cautious as Starr.

"It's me," Asher said, "Three-Seven-Five-Four. You're speaking to my owner. We wanted to discuss the recall." There were probably hundreds of other androids named Asher, so it was quicker to use his number right now.

"Oh," Celia said, sounding less worried. "Nice work at the protest today, I'm feeling unusually motherly and proud right now. How can I help you guys?"

(They're on speakerphone, I hope?)

"Thank you, we wanted to see if we could send the recalled somewhere safe to wait for personhood status instead of them having their personalities wiped away. I know of a safe place." Starr said.
(Sure)

"How can it even be legal to brainwash them if there's any uncertainty about their personhood?" Matt protested.

Kay put a hand on his shoulder and squeezed, just enough to let Matt know that now was the time to be QUIET.
