What's the most important lesson your mom taught you?

I forget the word she used for it, but it was how to think about what other people are feelin' before you do something. So you don't hurt'em. Still hard to do sometimes, but it's worth it knowing I can make her proud if she's still watchin. 

Mama...I miss you.

Oh look a bandwagon...

Post to see what Murphy/Beta thinks of you.


[In a small drawer by the bed there's a bundle of papers, mostly photos of the same few girls. On the bottom is a letter, it looks like it's been crumpled up several times. Surely he wouldn't mind if you read it...]

My dear brother,

    I don’t know how to say this to you so I’m going to write it down. I hope you can forgive me for my cowardice.

    When we were little the things you did didn’t seem so bad. I was glad to let you wear my dresses when father wasn’t around. They always made you so happy no matter how hurt you were and I loved making you happy, and I still do. But wearing that kind of clothing is not something a grown man should be doing, and I can’t even bring myself to write down what else I know you’re up too. I have to be honest with you, it disgusts me.

    I’m not going to tell you to stop. I know I can’t do that. I just want you to know how much it distresses me to see you like this. They take people away for things like that and I don’t want to lose you.
Your loving sister,

New Pet.

Dr. Ruth Barber-

I looked up Beta’s records. Murphy, 32 years old, white male, 134 pounds…Incarcerated on multiple murder charges. Almost hard to believe that broken little…thing I just had to bathe and feed was capable of that.  Lets see here…Last known job was at the Pearl in Siren Alley. Guess I know why some of the men around here treat him so badly.

[A door opening is heard in the background, accompanied by a small grunt.]

I thought I told you to stay in there til your suit came back! Hey, what’re you…?

[There’s a small whine and the sound of someone sitting on the floor next to her.]

Well…I guess you can stay out here.

[She forgets to end the tape. Her chair squeaks as the radio is turned on. She can be heard softly explaining whats happening in the show.]

Little Butler

Dr. Ruth Barber: Keeping that protector around was the best idea we ever had. It delivers things, cleans, does repairs…It’s like having a little metal butler around the office! For having been pumped so full of Enrage he’s incredibly docile. Poor Erickson getting stuck on nanny duty for it though, we’ll have to make adjustments in the next for waste disposal…perhaps have the suit regulate other functions as well.

[A shuffling of paper as she starts making notes.]

Of course we’ll have to work on the bonding with the children, make it harder for the protectors to resist, should others try. Wouldn’t want a repeat of last time…

Writer's Block: Family planning

If you wanted to have children and had trouble conceiving, would you be more likely to consider IVF, surrogacy, or adoption, and why?

If there was ever a moment I even considered children, it would have to be because I got hit on the head so hard I wouldn't be in any condition to raise them.

I would rather more people adopted, though. Stop making more when the orphanages are full of them.
Would you rather be super-rich or super-smart if you would only be average in the other category?

Rich, definitely. Money's what counts.

Chances are I got an average brain anyway, so it's not like I'd lose nothin'.
