the Sun, Moon-&-Dragonoids of Tanis
He shifted around in the darkness of his observation orb and took in a deep breath before calmly exhaling out all of his anxiety. His semi-sunken eyes were looking over the trapezoid elevated display-screen in front of him, as it powered on with nothing but Tanis-Dragonoid text crawling all over it. The checklist to prepare Jeanette's dimensional-drive engines was already underway and he felt somewhat nervous that he'd had to make so many physical-alterations to himself and Jeanette! Just to be able to pull off getting a close enough look at Lu Gell in action to determine whether he should build everything around the diminutive-runt or leave him and his family to get torn apart by the Ilvala laying siege to his city.
He'd better not get his ass killed before I can even get there to spy on him, Williams bitched to himself.
More monitors and displays came online with Tanis-Dragonoid text on them. He had no problems understanding every word. The real trick was the cultural-references to the language. His cortical-camo implant was slowly doing the work of giving him all that he needed to be able to truly understand what it means to be a member of the Border-Region Territories and their distinctive customs-&-culture. Crossroad-technology is still every bit as formidable with a little bit of Williams Works innovation, he mused. The smug-smile of satisfaction quickly faded as he reached out with his mind. Causing a small holographic orange window to appear in front of him in response to his thought, as he said "Lemme see the readings forthe Dragonboy-Wonder." he didn't hide his sarcasm as his shit-fer-brains smug-smirk came back. His teeth were...? Kinda yellow!? And...? Nasty...! His clothes were...!? Are!?
And dirty, as he softly sung about the fact that "I got the refuGe-SURVI-VOR, fee-verrrrrrrr...!"
All of the displays and monitors were laid out around him in a semi-circle. While above his head also in a semi-circle were even more displays-&-monitors coming online, as Jeanette gave him the information to his 1-mark square, orange holo-window "Here you go, Master."
"Thank you." he chimed back and began immediately looking over Lu Gell's information that Jeanette had obtained for him "He's physically weak as shit, but!? Superhuman agility and his endurance...?" Williams noticed that "Looks like you needed to run a couple of scans for his endurance?"
Jeanette sighed "It appears that he has created some sort of jamming-device that almost caused me to completely miss the fact that my initial OSS-readings were totally wrong! So I had to keep working and working at it where I found out that he has a lot of psionic-talents centered around biotechnology and machines. He can control machines and biotechnology, Master. So of course I had to be extremely careful sneaking around and spying on him. I almost got caught doing multiple OSS-readings!" and that got Williams' attention in a hurry as Jeanette added "Never mind that the infernal multilayered shielding around Lu City really caused me to have to work overtime. I couldn't get through it! So I had to wait till they sent out retrieval-teams to collect Ilvala-carcasses for consumption and domestic breakdown."
The cortical-camo implant had done its job as Williams was hit with the knowledge that "Wait-a-second, whoa!? They. EAT!? THE ILVALA!? What the fuck kind of!?" and then his mind was filled with the image of what an Ilvala is. as well as what they look like "Okay that's on the Dr. Moreau side of the game! Who the hell decided!? To mix-n-match a woman's upper-body with the lower-body of two-different monsters!?" he was trying to figure out for himself...? Just what the hell he was seeing in his mind's-eye...!? "Is that a...?Dragon front-part... and then some sort of...? Black-lion back-part, what the hell!? This looks like these bitches could be related to fuckin Sudarka!?" and of course they are not even close to looking anything like his flagdragonmount!
Well...!? Not exactly like Her...!
Jeanette couldn't help but bust out laughing as she told Williams the fact that "The Ilvala, really all of Old Adari. They're a bioengineered slave-race to some Omniversal-section of Sauropod People." she was loving the persona he was deciding to roll with for this mission! In her hearts she knew he deserved to cut-loose and just act wild and be-wild! Instead of always having to be uptight and serious all the time! She loved him even more when he was like this!
But hearing about Sauropod People? His face soured immediately because now he was through "Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, SHIT!?" now that Jeanette's cockpit was lit up Williams looked...?
He literally looked like a bum late to get to his street corner! And a barbershop. And a razorblade... to shave that nasty chin-stubble and horribly-bad and uneven mustache!
Williams quickly asked Jeanette "Are they still there!? I can't tell whether or not those shapechanging-handbags are them or someone else!?" then he quickly muttered that "You didn't tell me that the fuckin Border-Region Bastards-n-Bitches actually eat their enemies. I'm feeling some type of way about that, for-real for-real, JEANETTE. Seem like you tryin ta set me up with shapechanging-handbags and cannibalistic Dragonoids walking around and SHIT! Giant half-women that are half-amazing and probably taste!?" and all she did was laugh as he continued to mutter and complain that "WAIT!? If they have a woman's body and an animal's body? What kind of Cult of Kathulu-crap you got me into this time!? And do they have multiple-pussies because they're women and have beast-bodies!?" now she was in full blown laughter over his dumb-ass with all the shit he's seen in his life!? But that didn't stop him from adding that "I'm not trying to have some giant Ilvala-TITTY! Put!? Put steaming on a plate in front of me!? I don't need that TRAUMA, Jeanette. I mean it dammit! I'm a Border-Region Territories SURVIVOR!" from the wild-eyed look on his face! To his insistence that "I can't go back to the Empire now! Fuck them fuckin traitors! FUCK'EM! Gettin me attacked by giant women with giant titties!? I can't cope with this shit this machine is hittin me with right now, DAMMIT!"
"And you won't have to!" Jeanette was struggling to breathe as she kept laughing her ass off "Focus on the positive, Master! Focus. On the Positives!" she couldn't help herself from laughing because she knew his ass would chow down on whatever titty was slapped down in front of him, otherwise!? He'd be chowin-down onfist! Flying in his face! From the Tanis-Dragonoids of the Border-Region sittin around him!? Easily seeing his ass is an imposter!
"I'm trying." he deadpanned "I'm tryin And I'm FAILIN. I can't let them muthafucka's eat MY Ass like they eat them Ilvala-titties, dammit! I can't deal with that!"
The two of them continued to laugh their asses off until both of them knew that the dimensional-drive engines were online-n-ready and that all of the laughter and silliness was now about to turn into seriousness. For Sao-Jang Williams he knew and understood that if Li-Caste-Line was going to survive, imprisoned or not. Exiled or not. He was gonna have to go around the old-guard and simply do what needed to be done before things got even worse than they already were "Well, My Love." his voice was somber and filled with the seriousness of what he was about to finally do "This is it." he wasn't comfortable about leaving the rest of his senior-staffers behind, but? With the situation and circumstances being what it is?
He knew he had no choice in the matter "Prepare to move out, Jeanette."
"Everyone will be okay while we're gone, Master." she tried to reassure him "We've planned everything out and everyone knows what to do. By the time anyone knows we're gone, we'll already be back!" or?
So she hoped.
To which he softly said aloud "So we all hope, Beautiful. So we all hope...."
The interior of Jeanette was spacious and his modifications had passed all of the trials and test plus the anchor-beacon was working, too. But he was having some doubts because traveling to Tanis Island was always one misstep away from either being killed. Or being stuck there and unable to get back, well this is some BULLSHIT, he bitched to himself. Joke-time was definitely over now.
Turning the backs of his hands up slightly he could still see the aging marks of his brown skin and knew that going back to Central Tanis Island again was gonna cost him some more years of his life. With a deep sigh he then sat back in his plush black cockpit-chair and mentally reached out and went through final-checks before departure. Jeanette's displays were situated all around him in a semi-circle layout. He checked her pedal-controllers at his feet. His black Ilvala-boots with their thick soles and finely-furred material was beat-up just enough. Or soh he hoped! He let the information that she'd just bombarded him with soak in a bit more, as he played with the edges of his beautiful but beat-up black robes.
Spying on Tanis Island has always been a pain-in-the-ass, especially since they activated that goddamn Infinity Device, but!? His readings had led him to this part of the Omniverse, which didn't really...?
Seems like we're joined to each other at the hip, he thought to himself. His face showed that he was tired, he definitely needed to shave his scruffy chin-hairs. He looked to be in his mid-30's, maybe? And his hair had grown into a bit of a wild mini-afro that was screaming for a shape up or a straight clip-cut down to scalp-level or lower! His nails are too long. He smelled like he hadn't showered in days! Teeth needed some cleaning weeks ago, the shit I go through for the sake of the Line. No time for regrets now, especially not with the hot-mess going on there "Activate OSS and engage dimensional-drives." everything around him exploded in blaring white-light and the all too familiar sensations of atmospheric pressure made him smile,here we go again "Take us in, nice and easy, Jeanette...."
