Guppy Brain! (she is only 10)
I spend the whole night trying to find things to make my friends happy. Nocturne was unhappy with her status as an apex predator, so I tried to make something that might make her feel more "in control" of her feeding impulses. Making her not be a vampire anymore is beyond me at this point, but if I could curb her feeding drive.

And then, I made an arm for Hardcase. She's been without one since her suit stopped working and I'm not really sure why I didn't think of it before now. Still, it made her happy, which made me happy.

But I didn't make Nocturne happy, I just made her think that I was putting her family in danger. She's right, of course. But I was so proud of my creation I couldn't wait to show her.

Then Hardcase was really happy to get her arm, and that made me happy.

But then we had this meeting with the General and Vogel. Statuesque and Red Shift had set up this meeting and I assumed that they had some kind of agenda. I'd let them run with it, since he's been able to manage our PR campaign. And Statuesque has run some kind of clothes store or something for years so she must plan this stuff out, right?

No, they came into it with what seemed to be no plan for what they actually wanted other than the government to leave us alone with our space-prison. Which they wanted to tell the General about...

So I put an idea on the table. A compromise. Scarab used to say that a compromise is when nobody gets everything they want but nobody gets nothing they want.

And then the doctor yells at me for not helping!

Well, that's enough of that. I have plenty of places in this city I can be unappreciated!
