Hello, Miles? Everything okay over there?
superposition: (And why?)

[Hm... well he's not in any danger, from the looks of it, but that's not really what Qubit was trying to ask.]

You're sure? Newt was concerned about you. Why the name change all of a sudden?

[... And then he notices the shirtlessness. Huh. Well on the one hand, it's June and it's hot out, but on the other hand Newt did warn him.]

[Welp, there's a mental image Qubit did not need. He rubs his forehead, mildly exasperated. This still doesn't add up.]

All right. When we met last week, you gave your name as "Admiral Miles Naismith Vorkosigan." I was under the impression that was all of it.

Oh, it's Prince now. [He nods, but there's definitely some eyeroll going on there.] All right, fine. That doesn't answer my question. If it's so important, why are you only telling us now?

[Well. That's new information.]

"Alternate"? What do you mean, "alternate"?
superposition: ((talk to me))

[personal profile] superposition 2016-06-26 07:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Details, Your Highness.
superposition: (But now you know the truth about me)

[A moment while he processes this. That's... a pretty big difference.]

That's impossible. The Porter's the only thing around here that can reliably bridge a dimensional gap of that magnitude. Your alternate would have had to be 'ported out, and you 'ported in in his place. Did you come via Cape Canaveral?
superposition: ((crossed arms))

[personal profile] superposition 2016-06-26 07:48 pm (UTC)(link)
And that's what doesn't make sense. That's the only place the Porter brings new arrivals in. So I don't think you're an "alternate" at all. We've got to be looking at something else. Timeline displacement again, maybe, or someone altering people's memories.
superposition: (And why?)

[personal profile] superposition 2016-06-26 09:10 pm (UTC)(link)
What? No. Nothing of the sort. [Buuut he doesn't want to get trapped in a metaphysical conversation about the nature of memory and identity or whatever, so let's just continue :'D] You said this has happened to others, as well. Who?

Kitty Jones...? I know of her. [She's the one who was graphically murdered on camera back in February. Hard to forget that.] All right, I'll ring her. See if we can't figure out what's going on here.
superposition: (So what difference does it make?)

[personal profile] superposition 2016-07-02 07:32 pm (UTC)(link)
I didn't, but I'm Qubit.
