Social leads the way in a rather bouncy fashion to the Livewires' base: a rather quaint, pretty little farmhouse. Pausing just inside the door, she scoops up a small ball of black fur, which immediately turns into a demon-kitten intent on gnawing her hand off at the wrist. She beams and kisses it on the top of it's evil little head, and drops it in a nearby flowerpot. It turns its attentions to the ficus in the pot, apparently trying to get in touch with its inner beaver.

Running a quick sensor scan through the house, she pouts slightly and flops on the couch. "They're not home." She huffs a bit, then smiles cheerily at Daniel. "I guess we'll just have to hang out here until they get back!"

Dan watches as Social picks up the vicious furball. Gazing as the little thing began devastating the plant. This was definitly not something meant for people to mess with. "...Probably a good thing you're one of those mecha, aren't you? That little thing... Could probably devastate a small nation."

Dropping his books and stuff off near the door, he moves towards the couch as well, sitting down easier than Social did. "Huh, others, eh? So, what're they like?" Yeah, it was small talk. But hey, he was curious.

She leans against the arm of the couch and sticks her feet up, incidentally ending up halfway in Daniel's lap. "I know! Isn't he adorable?!" she beams, the very picture of a proud mommy.

Wiggling down into the cushions, she toes off her shoes before continuing. "Yup! Others. Right now there's me, Autocannibal, Hollowpoint Ninja, and Gothic Lolita. Auto's working on fixing the rest of our brothers and sisters. Cornfed is in the basement. I think she's almost done with him." She beams, excited at the prospect of getting her brother back. "There used to be ten of us. She might be able to rebuild everybody we lost."

Daniel was noticeably more relaxed than he had. Something about one on one away from prying eyes was definitly wasier on his nerves. Stretching out, he extends his legs in front of him and leans his arms over the back of the couch, looking down at Social. "Umm, yeah, very. Though, he'd probably like, kill me. Or any person. Magic or not."

"Ten, eh?" He did the math in his head. It sounded like they all had different missions, judging from their names. "Huh. I would say it reminds me of my family, but I don't remember them much. Though if they're anything like my room-mates from the academy, it definitly sounds like it'd be fun." Grinning, Daniel turns his head towards Social. "And if they're anything like you, I dunno if I'd be able to stay in this house. I am just one man, after all."

She laughed, wiggling her toes at him. "Don't be silly. He wouldn't kill anyone! Maybe chew your fingers off, but that's it. Probably." she grinned wickedly.

"They're pretty cool. I'm the fun one, though." She beamed at the embodiment of evil stalking across the living room, having abandoned his destruction of foliage. "You're mommy's good little boy, aren't you Trouble?" The tiny beast hissed, and ran off down the hall with his tail lashing. "Aww. He's shy."

"Anyway! Tell me more about yourself, Daniel?" She turned her bright smile up at him, fingers laced over her stomach as she watched him curiously. "What's your world like? Level of technology, favourite movies, things like that."

"Yeah, he'd stop after the first time. Maybe he'd feel like leaving your soul intact. Though I wouldn't be surprised if the little bugger had some way of devouring that as well." Dan grinned. Interesting images, to him at least. He was especially happy when the animal decided to get away. He definitly did not want that thing sneaking up on him while he was sleeping. Or whatever. Mostly whatever, in this case.

"Yeah, shy. 's fine, I'm sure we'll be... not killing each other in the future, anyway."

"So.... Myself. Don't mind if I do. I'm 21, I like ice cream, cake, and pizza. I enjoy the average romantic comedy, action flick, and comedy. Not that I ever really got to see many movies growing up. Hmmm." Leaning his head back, Daniel stares up at the ceiling. Talking about his world. Huh, maybe he wasn't the best for that. "Well, up until a few years ago, I was a student at one of the most prestigious magic schools in Athens. Like, bam." Dan produced a bit of magic from his open palm, quickly closing the hand again, extinguishing it. "My time was spent mostly studying magic at an infuriatingly slow pace, and writing down history. Copying, actually. Eh, if you want, I'll show you the tome I was working on when I left later. I eventually got kicked out due to some... how to say... unfortunate events between me, a girl, and a unicorn. Though that did get the spell to get to the nexus." And truth be told, he didn't really regret it. His tone was almost one of fond reminiscince.

Almost.

"So, after I was kicked out, I decided to depend on the kindness of strangers and travel the world. Man, you wouldn't believe half the stuff I could describe. Entire cities where everything seemed to be made of flashing lights and computer banks. Quiet, muggy cities, places around rivers... I saw it all. And as awesome as you are for a mecha," Dan faced down again, looking directly at Social, "You probably wouldn't have stood a chance against one of our Automata units. Not that I'd let you fight one anyway." Breaking out into an honest smile, Dan finished up. "Honestly, if you wanted, I'd take you back, but uh, I can't. I never quite got the coordinates for my world before I closed the portal."

It's right about now that Auto gets back.

She doesn't seem especially hinged towards socializing at the moment--especially given that she's smoking slightly, there are occasional burn marks in her clothes, a chunk of the 'skin' on the left side of her face is missing, and she's toting a massively oversized rifle as long as she is tall--but she offers the two a wave before padding through towards the basement.

She listens curiously, assimilating both the data from his words and from his body language. The magic show makes her eyes light up with interest, but she doesn't interject until Auto gets home. Then she beams blindingly, bouncing into Daniel's lap and wrapping an arm around his shoulder and petting his hair. "Auto! This is Daniel! Can he stay with us for a while?"

[Look what followed me home, mom! *grin* Can I keep him? Can I can I?]

Leaning forward from the sudden weight on his lap, he winces. Definitly wasn't expecting that. Turning towards Auto, he tried to use his most pitiful look. "Yeah, umm, I've been rather displaced from my world for a bit, so uh, if it's not too much trouble...? I'll try not to get in the way. Hell, I'll probably spend most of my time in the nexus, gathering information and all that." Yeah, this was a new experience all around for him.

"I don't mind," she says, "as long as I can co-opt you into doing chores." An almost-wink.

A mock face of horror flits over Daniel's face before he resumes his regular grin. "Eh, if you really want. I was kinda hopin for free room and board, myself."

Auto sticks her tongue out at him for a moment, quite cutely.

The android girl pauses, massive rifle balanced on one shoulder. She seems to have lost a boot somewhere--she only has one, while the blue-and-white striped sock on the other foot is quite visible (and a little scorched).

"As long as he doesn't bother anything in the basement," she says with a small grin.

[I'm not feeding him, and you'll have to take him for walks, got it? *:P*]

She grins, patting Daniel's head with a proprietary air. "Don't worry, I'm sure he'll follow the rules, won't you Daniel?"

[And I'll make sure he doesn't pee on the floors or scratch the furniture. *grin*]

"Huh, rules? I mean uh, yeah. No going into the basement. Check. Anything else?" If he didn't know any better, Daniel would think he was being treated like a pet, what with the patting and all. Luckily, he doesn't.

With her personal injunction in place, Auto proceeds through to the basement--if only to deposit the gun somewhere. She may come back, depending on how the conversation between Social and Daniel continues.
