Fifty Shades of Gunmetal

[Lucca's been especially scarce during the stinkbomb incident, content to work outdoors where the smell was... lessened. But now she has a reason to be searching the city and the rooms of the Deeps in particular.]

My books are missing! The entire library is GONE! Ohhh gosh, if I don't find them soon... If, if anyone finds any books on robotics, circuitry, solid-state engineering or magiteck, can you bring 'em over? Please!?

[She sounds a little panicked. Everyone has their mote of security, and it seems that was hers. The books are scattered EVERYWHERE, tucked in planters, up trees, in bathrooms, being held by statues, in decorative tureens in the palace district, in coiled ropes down near the docks...]

[Also of note the drier texts are sometimes paired up with some interesting companions. Things bearing titles like "Tangled Pistons of Passion", and "Lust and Superfluids: No Resistance to the Heat." Oh my.]

I think I found one.

"...Quantum Entanglement and Bedsheets"

Interesting reading choice.

I bet you do. It looks very cerebral, but...intriguing.

Sure, no problem. I'll be around.

If you would be kind enough to provide a list of titles, I would be glad to search for them for you.
needtobecleaned: (K - Oooh)

[personal profile] needtobecleaned 2012-07-01 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
[An android and so much more.]

Understood. I will be certain to be as discreet as is possible when searching for them. Is anything else missing?

*She found it sitting by the side of a building. She'd started to read it. Or, well, tried, anyway. Which is where Lucca might spot her.*

I... I get the feeling this is supposed to be dirty, but it is so technical how could anybody tell?
departed_child_of_gods: (Good grief.)

[personal profile] departed_child_of_gods 2012-07-02 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
Geez, stop waffling and just take it already. I didn't even want it anyway.

*She hands it over.*

I found some engineering manuals I'd never seen before...or at least I think they're engineering manuals...

Oh, sure. I'm in the Docks district, near the mecha hangars. My name is Latooni Suvota.

orewagundamda: (Season 2: Feelings made noticeable)

Why no one did this yet is beyond me, so FIRST!

[Setsuna didn't really realize that anything was amiss with his apartment, as he had taken to sleeping in the cockpit of his gundam like he did during the four year period that Celestial Being was out of comission. As such, when he did finally decide to go to this new place, he blinked as he saw a horde of items stuffed inside. One item in particular stood out to him: a book entitled "Proper Melting Techniques: Making Metal Bend to Your Touch". Finding the title strange (Evoking an image of Ian Vashti at work with his Gundam for some reason), he decided to give it a read.]

[Five chapters in, and Setsuna's eyes bug out. Whatever he had been expecting, it was not... well, it wasn't THIS, for certain. But that didn't deter him, oddly enough. He felt a kinship to this 'Amu-ro Lay' and his romance to his first creation, the servant-type Girl-bot named 'Huckebein', how they had to hide this relationship of Creation and Master from the world, forbidden by its laws. Moreover, he felt that he was learning something from this book. He wasn't sure how it would help him EVER, but he knew that something was being taught to him. He needed to study this text more, to find out its secrets!]

[10 hours later, a video feed connects to Lucca's communicator, the face belonging to a blushing middle-eastern man.] Are you the person known as Lucca Ashtear?

I was hoping you would. Also [Private]

[Just sorta... doesn't make eye contact as he shows her the book he had been reading, her name on the last blank page under 'Property of']

I apologize for not getting this to you sooner, but I found myself drawn into the story. [Which is saying something to him because he didn't read books that often.] I'll return it post haste, but I was wondering... Do you happen to have anything related to it that I might borrow? [Just... All the shame. His face is red as a cherry.]
