Doesn't talking to you count? You're a lotta woman for being a digital construct.

But yeah let's say hi to her, at least. We do need to remember to look up information about ourselves and our profession, but if we can slip some questions in about current events, that'll help.
No. 1087769 ID: 940726

Something you're forgetting? ...Ah, that's right!

We had considered developing your flirtation skills with her on the way to the library, before we met your old friend in the elevator and got sidetracked catching up. The cute bee girl is another opportunity to do that.

I say we skip it and go straight to booklearning. Normally I'd be all for it, but Hax threatened us, and I'm not going to let her think she can endanger your control over your own mind and get away with it. If she doesn't like what you decide to do, she can get back in her box while we handle important things.
No. 1087771 ID: 588b52

There's gotta be a way to artfully handle both, I think. Finding a book and talking to a nice lady can't be TOTALLY mutually exclusive!
No. 1087773 ID: 7c55ad

We can probably ask her for help finding specific books or websites we can research, and go from there with flirting.
No. 1087784 ID: 5ebd37

It wouldn't hurt to do some flirting before research. What books is she looking at? Could give us a conversation opening.
No. 1087791 ID: 940726

I stand by what I said.

It's true, we could practice flirting and do research at the same time. But our relationship with Hax is at a point where it's important to establish limits.

We won't be doing anything lewd unless she's at least willing to apologize and promise not to mess with Jack's mind without his permission. If she won't do that, then just ignore the attractive stranger and focus on learning.
No. 1087793 ID: 1b53c2

Agreed here.

Ignoring her now would let us know whether or not she would be willing to follow through on her threat. If she isn't, then we've set a boundary. If she is, then- Well, we a first-hand look at how the hacks 'feel' which... Could range from fun to catastrophic, depending on what she does, and how much we can fight back against it (out of pure spite, if nothing else).

That said, unless she's got a restriction against messing with us in there, we're probably going to be in for the more interesting option.
No. 1087870 ID: 940726

Wait, did someone leave a weird grinning doll on one of the bookshelves?

Did someone leave a weird round yellow thing on top of the bookshelves?
No. 1087873 ID: 42bb51

oH NO!! that YELLOW NUCLEAR WARHEAD may roll from atop the bookshelf and BONK that bee in the head!
Better talk to them to drag them to safety!
also learning some LORE at the computer sounds important
No. 1087887 ID: df60a9

Ask the bee bot for directions to engage in our research, maybe some light conversation if she seems interested in it.

Jack sighs, outnumbered in the decision.

:JackAnnoyed: "Fine, I'll go talk to a woman, happy?"

:HaxSmile: "Getting there"

Walking over, Jack pretends to simply browse, looking at some books in the nonfiction section.

:JackNeutral: "You look like you know your way around here, where would the best place be to do some research on a person? And just... Info on current topics and such."

The bot turns to you, staring blankly for a moment, blinking a few times, does she... know you?

:BeaNeutral: "O-Oh! Yeah, uhm, most books are outdated by a year so your best bet is to look on the AHN Index, keeps tabs on everything in all sectors"
No. 1089733 ID: df60a9

She might know you in passing and be confused why you don't know her. There's not much facial response. You could try introducing yourself and asking her name.
No. 1089736 ID: 940726

I still say you're making a mistake. Hax will think she can just push you around whenever she wants if you let her.

You don't have to do this if you don't want to. We're your advisors, not your bosses. We're here to help. It wouldn't be much fun anyway if you're not in the mood.

Well, we got a decent tip from Bea, so my recommendation is look for where they keep the history books. I'd like to learn what happened in the past (100x + 77) years, and if the hardcopy books are only one year or so out of date, they'll have enough nifty info to keep our interest for quite a while. If we're lucky, you might even be famous enough to make it into the history books.
No. 1089738 ID: 01b128

>The bot turns to you, staring blankly for a moment, blinking a few times, does she... know you?
Well the more likely thing is that she's just not used to being talked to outta nowhere. Like she was thinking "...Oh he's talking to myself? ...Oh he asked this?" Shyness (on a girl) has charms too, eh HAX~? Seriously though, where's the passive read? Give that girl a compliment though. Even if you have pure intentions a friend would be nice to have.
No. 1089739 ID: 7f8d92

I, for one, believe refusing to talk to women on the basis of Hax wanting to is silly. Let's see if we can find out if this woman knows us. It seems the fact that we're an amnesiac has already spread by our previous conversation.
No. 1089743 ID: 96707f

Can always interrogate Hax on her psychological motives later, that'll make think twice about pushing Jack around.

Apologize if you're being too forward, it's just you've had some amnesia and are still finding your footing socially
No. 1089744 ID: 861ceb

might as well be blunt and just ask the girl. Just start off apologizing and ask if you know her as you recent are recovering from a operation accident that has left your memory a bit patchy.
No. 1089772 ID: 940726

I've got a question for Jack. Why are you doing this when you clearly don't want to? Before, you had always made decisions based on what you thought was the best idea, even if only one or two of us mentioned it, or you came up with it on your own without our input. It was never a matter of you just doing what you think people want; our role is to advise you, not control you. What's making you act differently now?

I'm honestly concerned about this. Your behavioral patterns were consistent before they suddenly changed, right when you started to disagree with Hax. Is she already messing with your mind? Can she even do that?

I'm saying we should refuse to do something Jack doesn't want to do, and should go with what he was planning instead, because Hax threatened his life.

This is not something we can just laugh off. This is a big deal. Hax is threatening Jack's life, and that makes her an enemy. This isn't about whether we get to meet a cute girl or not, it's about whether our host can keep control of his own mind.

This isn't something we can put off for later, either. What's happening here and now is, by far, the most important time to show resistance. If we give in to Hax's death threats now and talk about it later, she'll feel smug about how she got what she wanted and come up with some dismissive excuse to justify herself. Then the next time she wants to force Jack to do something, she'll do it again without a second thought, because it worked the first time.

That's why it's so important to tell Hax "no". We can always have a nice conversation with with Bea or another cute girl later. Hax wants Jack to be afraid of her now, so it's time for her to put up or shut up.
No. 1089793 ID: c5529d

Yeah, tell her you had a botch operation, and may have forgotten stuff. So if she knew you, you probably forgot

Check her stats.

:JackSmile: "Thanks, where would I find that? Oh, and what's your name by the way? Have we.. met? I-I'm having some memory problems at the moment"

:BeaSmile: "A-ah, It's the default website on the library computers, I'm Bea by the way! Nice to meet you, J-- I-I' just looking through the library for something interesting to read"

Jack smiles, finding her nervousness cute, though HAX whispers something quietly...

:HaxAnnoyed: "..She's lying"

>Seriously though, where's the passive read? Give that girl a compliment though. Even if you have pure intentions a friend would be nice to have.

(Forgot to make room for the text box so you get it here lol)

- Excited

Love: 80/100
Lust: 10/100
Agitation: 0/100

Bea's expression brightens as she hears his compliment, squeaking quietly as she smiles

:BeaSmile: "Thank you! That's really sweet, I think you look really great too!"

+5 Love

:BeaNeutral: "That's fine! Completely normal for someone going through memory loss, if you need any help around the area I can help!"

:JackSmile: "That would be nice, don't wanna get lost haha"

The two converse for a short while, before...

>Wait, did someone leave a weird grinning doll on one of the bookshelves?

...You notice it too, Bea following your gaze to the strange plush

:JackConfused: "What's this?"

Picking it up, he tilts his head, examining the doll

:BeaNeutral: "Oh, that's a plushie of Mr Carter! He's a wonderous inventor, I was actually made in the same sector as him! He's discovered many revolutionary facts about our world, you should meet him sometime! Wonderful place to visit."

Hax virtually nudges Jack, gesturing over to the computers

:JackSurprised: "Oh, right! The Ahn index! I should probably get to researching, it's been great meeting you, Bea!"

:BeaSmile: "Same here! If you need some help, I can always come with you" she offers
No. 1090626 ID: 394dad

She should come with us! We could use a partner to get busy with in the bookshelves. Even if we didn’t know her previously, this is a good time to turn a new page in our relationships.
No. 1090627 ID: 8f9bc4

oh my god we must protect that smile.
No. 1090629 ID: 861ceb

she knows you, she almost called you by name for a moment, she also looks nervous but her love stat is really high so I don't think she's someone out to get you.

um... only things I can think of why she is lying to you is either she
A) is just kinda bad at small talk/social situations
B) she's trying to figure out a way to ask you out on a date (with a love stat that high she defiantly has some kind of feelings for you)
C) she isn't looking for a book but something else that she doesn't want people to know about... I mean if her lust was higher I'd say maybe she's looking for some kind of smut novel but given where she was looking before you started talking to her she was either eyeing the NEHM book or the one left of it.

hey Hax can you keep an eye on her while jack does his thing so it isn't obvious we're watching her?

Also might as well let her tag along while we're here. those stats make me doubt she means you any ill will but she's definitely hiding something from you so keeping her around might help you figure out what she's not telling you.
... or if you have no patience you could just have HAX have her powers go from passive to active and nudge Bea to accidentally letting the truth slip out when you think she's hiding something again.
No. 1090630 ID: c006d6

That girl definitely likes us. With our old friend and patient, while his affection was high, he only had 5/100 love. This girl probably knows us. If it was just her going "Awooga" at us, she'd have higher lust...but its love. This girl is definitely someone we met before.
No. 1090631 ID: 7220f3

Like you said with Max, you're starting all your relationships anew. If she knew you before its up to her if she wants to tell you. No need to dig for secrets that we don't even know are important.

Since she offered let her come with. She is pleasant company.
No. 1090634 ID: e885e5

"You know, I still have, like, beliefs and values. And if someone was important to the person I was in the old memories, especially if I was important to them as well, I would value kindling some sort of relationship with them, even if it wasn't the same one as before."
No. 1090635 ID: 068168

I get the feeling she may have had a crush on you before. If she knew you personally she would be more open I imagine. Hopefully not the yandere stalker kind of crush, it sounds like she may have been here to look at you more than the books.

Don't sat anything about it for now. If we find anyone else we know later, we can ask them about her.
No. 1090637 ID: ef7b31

Huh. Quite possible that she wished to have a close relationship with you. What would have stopped this? 1) Preexisting relationship 2) She was with you but you broke up due to issues you had with her so she was alone 3) She was a fangirl but you were a celebrity so out of reach 4) She's strelok stalker-ish. Lot of possibilities. Lots of reasons to lie. Still, she seems fine with a clean slate. Pressing her would be unnecessary for now.
No. 1090650 ID: 273c18

She's got over 80 Love already, you've definitely met before. You probably rejected her. Let's not hook up with miss emotional baggage here. Tell her you'll be alright on your own it's just the library.
No. 1090651 ID: 2a82d3

It's also possible you're a minor celebrity, and she's, like, your biggest fan. She doesn't seem the type to pull off any big lies.
No. 1090653 ID: 940726

>"A-Ah, sorry. Takes a bit for me to... Adjust to new users."
That is barely a response. Is it "sorry for teasing you about your masculinity"? Or "sorry for threatening your life when I got bored with you"? Or "sorry for messing with your mind without asking permission or telling you"?

Let's make this perfectly clear, so there's no confusion in the future. Are you, or are you not, willing or able to murder Jack or forcibly alter his mind if he tries to do something you don't like? Tell us what you can do, and tell us what you're actually threatening to do.
No. 1090657 ID: df60a9

I hadn't considered that we might be a celebrity. That seems like something we'll find out very soon.

Also, I vote to not bring her along for now. We can see if she tries to follow you anyways.
No. 1090664 ID: ab46e9

Cute, but we're still trying to find ourselves. We'll link back up with her later, but for now we roll alone (and with HAX).

I don't think HAX is trying to be wicked or evil, moreso she's just excited to be with someone, frankly. It's fine, for me, apology accepted unless you do something out of pocket again.
No. 1090665 ID: 8fbb45

Oh, but definitely get her number.
No. 1092607 ID: 9956c0

Oh my goodness, a fresh reality to screw with. Been a while. <cracks knuckles>

Seems like we got a cute bot that's quite fond of you. That aught to be worth utilizing. And it would be downright cruel to shun both of these adorable digital feminine archtypes. We gotta test those powers. We cant be out here flying blind. See if you can't make her do something bold. Make her ask you out to that Mr. Carter Emporium, and check out the area. It'll be good to have a local without their brains fried to show us around. And really, its a nice start to work with someone that's already fond of us, rather than get into.... well, what HAX is likely used to doing.

Also adorable [redacted] you have here. The inhabitants are adorable. <3

:HaxDevious: "Well I can only see what Jack sees, but... Maybe I can take a little peek through her own eyes~"

Hax grins, her eyes glazing over slightly before she disappears.

>She should come with us! We could use a partner to get busy with in the bookshelves.

:JackNeutral: 'The AHN Index is where we'll look first, I wanna know more about where I live and work and all that...'

:JackSmile: "Sure, could use the company. And, of course, someone who knows how to navigate the site haha"

:BeaSmile: "O-Okay! here, lets head over to one of the pcs"

Bea takes the lead, swiftly moving over to one of the pcs and pulling up a second chair, letting Jack take a seat as they begin to navigate the site...

There's a lot of information, some obvious and plain, but some going into detail on his life... A little concerning this info is just available to everyone.

Scrolling past the summaries at the top, detailed information about his work and experience shows up, along with an apology from the AHN index on their mistake causing his amnesia...

:JackSurprised: "Oh damn... 30 years of experience in therapy, huh? All gone just like that?"

:BeaSmile: "You were a great therapist i-it seems, it sucks that it's all gone but... Doesn't mean you can't start anew? Maybe you can choose something else, go your own way, y'know?"

Jack and Bea continue scrolling, Hax watching through Bea's eyes as Bea flicks back and fourth between fidgeting with her hands and looking at Jack...

:BeaNervousSmile: "Hey, uhm... Wanna maybe go to lunch sometime? I could even help guide you around the outside, show you where things are and all that, y'know? You're uhm... Pretty cute.."
No. 1092675 ID: a7a180

What did the other Jacks do? It's publicly available information, after all. Weird how there's single digits of your name...
How about lunch right after this? Ive got a lot to chew on. Maybe food will fill the empty void where my psychology degree used to be?
No. 1092676 ID: 539836

so she does have a crush on you, called it. As for the date, sure, just make sure it doesn't get in the way of the meeting with that guy you met in the elevator. You did promise to hang out with him after his shift was up after all.
No. 1092678 ID: 5ebd37

No. 1092692 ID: 273c18

Do not date someone who's pretending not to know you. That is a red flag; a sign of a previous failed relationship. Feel free to call her out on it; your bio says you can read people like a book so you have an excuse!

Tell her maybe later, you're just trying to get back on your feet and don't want to complicate things.
No. 1092701 ID: 9bbb0e

I am curious, too. I'm also curious enough to look up Bea, I mean these are public records. Just maybe not in front of her.
We could look up that inventor she likes and see what his deal is. That could give us some insights into the things she sees as important.

No. 1092711 ID: c61935

...could look her up once she goes off somewhere
No. 1092712 ID: 64faaa

yeah, this
No. 1092714 ID: c8380b

My guess is she knew another Jack model. Even if she didn't know us specifically, she's clearly attached to our line somehow. She needs to understand that we're an entirely different person and likely won't meet any expectations she has. If she insists, we wouldn't be opposed to getting to know her.
No. 1092721 ID: 8f9bc4

Yeah, she seems nice! Probably the sweetest person you've met so far. And she's not proposing marriage or anything; it's just lunch. You can get her trust by showing up, then you can say it seems like something is troubling her, and you won't hold it against her if it's about something you've forgotten. Or something like that.
No. 1092818 ID: bde9b1

I say 'yes' on lunch. I like this girl. She's cute.
