Jaime's cell phone is more or less plugged riiiight into his brain, so he tends to pick up like 99% of the time! If not, however...

"Hey, Jaime here! Leave a message, and I'll get back to you ASAP."

[Ah. That explains a lot, actually. But it's far from the first time he's dealt with mind control - in fact, there's a strong possibility he's experienced it himself at some nebulous point in the past. Not a good time, that.]

What sort of problems? Something wrong with the suit itself, or...?

I just ask because if it's a technical issue, I may be able to help.

From: [personal profile] superposition
Good lord. I can imagine.

[So we've got rogue AI, advanced alien technology, and it could fry Beetle's nervous system if something goes wrong... This might actually present a challenge, he realizes with a flutter of excitement. It's been a while since he had a really novel problem to solve.]

Mind if I come have a look at it? Just so I'd have a better idea what we're dealing with.

[Qubit come on, he didn't even agree to anything yet]

[Proactive, or just nosy? YOU DECIDE. In fairness, Jaime kind of brought this on himself - one does not simply dangle an interesting problem in front of this stubborn bastard and then yank it away.

Anyway, that warning doesn't really do much to deter him; for one thing, it would not be remotely the first time he's had to try and placate a hostile being who could pulverize him without lifting a finger. It's partly out of the goodness of his heart - if he can help, it stands to reason he should, that's just how he operates - but he's not without ulterior motives, either. He is trying to build a superteam here, after all.]

I appreciate the concern, but I have dealt with much worse. So has it always been hostile, or is that a recent development?

[Oh. Well, that's. certainly a thing. Suppose that's what he gets for jumping in the deep end.

... Wait, no, he hasn't said anything incriminating (yet). He can still salvage this interaction, he just knows it. (Nevertheless, there's a longer pause than usual between this message and the last.)]

Fair enough. I understand.

I ought to clarify - I don't mean the AI, or you, any harm. I haven't the faintest intention of trying to remove or destroy it.
["Reprogram it," though... let's just say that's left out of the list deliberately.] Think of it more like mediation. I've arbitrated similar disputes. Surely we could figure out something that works for the both of you.

superposition: ((what are we talking about?))
From: [personal profile] superposition
How specifically are you talking? There's only so much I can plan out without having all the details.

superposition: (And yet you start to recoil)
From: [personal profile] superposition
Oh! No, no, no, nothing so barbaric. [Besides which, he wouldn't have the first idea how to put you back together.] Strictly technopath stuff, as you put it.

superposition: (So let it be known)
From: [personal profile] superposition
Do you think so? Well, that's about par for the course for me these days. You'll have to forgive me not going into detail with it listening, but I do have measures I can take to prevent any untimely demises.

[Umm didn't he just say he's not going into detail... the scarab can hear all this, he doesn't want to give it any hints.]

You'll see. Nothing that'll hurt you, though, you have my word on that.
