[09:49] * Cést_la_V stretches

[09:50] <Cést_la_V> Ohayo, X-chan!!
[09:50] * Cést_la_V gives X-chan a good morning hug

[09:50] <Dr_Xadium> Minako-chan...
[09:50] <Cést_la_V> ?
[09:50] <Dr_Xadium> We have a problem...
[09:51] <Cést_la_V> ?
[09:51] * Dr_Xadium points to the kitchen

[09:51] <Cést_la_V> Ohayo, Hotaru-chan!!
[09:52] <Cést_la_V> Why isn't she saying anything?
[09:52] <Cést_la_V> Or moving??
[09:52] * Cést_la_V pokes Hotaru-chan in the shoulder

[09:53] <Dr_Xadium> She is completely immobile and unresponsive. According to, she's been sitting at the kitchen table all night locked in this position, staring blankly ahead with what could be termed, for lack of a better word, a "goofy" expression on her face.
[09:54] * Cést_la_V waves her hands in front of Hotaru-chan's open eyes

[09:54] <Cést_la_V> Her face is kind of red too...
[09:55] * Cést_la_V narrows her eyes

[09:55] <Cést_la_V> ne, do you think maybe Haruka-tachi did something to her? To balance out what I did to balance them out??
[09:55] <Dr_Xadium> I'm not certain, but I don't think so...
[09:55] * Dr_Xadium swings his pocketwatch in front of Hotaru's dull, glassy eyes and snaps it shut

[09:56] <Dr_Xadium> I'm not a medical doctor, but I've seen this condition before...
[09:56] <Cést_la_V> ??
[09:56] <Cést_la_V> Spill the cream!!
[09:57] <Dr_Xadium> It seems to be a severe form of self-induced catatonia...
[09:57] <Cést_la_V> Cat... tonic??
[09:57] <Dr_Xadium> In other words, her mind has withdrawn, locking into a self-induced coma... Time Lords can do this in times of great stress. But it stands to reason humans might be able to as well...
[09:58] <Cést_la_V> Like "Shell Shock"? But why...?
[09:59] <Dr_Xadium> My guess is, she encountered some sort of stimulus that her mind simply wasn't equipped to handle, and as a result it simply... "locked up" much as a computer might...
[10:00] <Cést_la_V> ...
[10:00] <Cést_la_V> But what could have caused her to "lock up" like that?
[10:00] * Dr_Xadium tries to use a low-level telepathic link

[10:00] <Dr_Xadium> My guess? Exposure to a strong emotion her mind was utterly unprepared for... something she couldn't possibly properly conceive of or handle... remember, she'd led a fairly sheltered life up until a few scant years ago.
[10:00] <Dr_Xadium> It looks to me like she's trapped in a deep state of ambivalence... she's torn between two conflicting sets of emotions, each equal and opposite... one wants to take her in a direction she's never been... the other longs for a safe, comfortable continuity...
[10:02] <Dr_Xadium> Quite simply, there's a logjam in her brain caused by her being caught in the horns of the emotional dilemma...

[10:02] <spiritflame> Irasshai .'~SugaBB_2999~'.
[10:02] <Cést_la_V> But... well how do we break it??
[10:02] <Dr_Xadium> We need to know what the stimulus is that caused her to retreat, and we need to cause her to either embrace the new emotion or safely set it aside. Otherwise, she will be forever like this...
[10:03] * Dr_Xadium gently opens her mouth and spoonfeeds her some porridge

[10:03] <Cést_la_V> ...Hotaru-chan...
[10:04] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> ror i kno wat it iz
[10:04] * Cést_la_V GRABS Chibiusa-chan

[10:04] <Cést_la_V> What is it, Chibiusa-chan!!

[10:05] <Dr_Xadium> ...

[10:05] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> shat da fack pu, zedum, ur a gi, u ned to kass har
[10:06] <Cést_la_V> Nani?! X-chan isn't kissing HER!!
[10:06] <Dr_Xadium> Quite so! Chibiusa, that is a fairy tale!
[10:06] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> stopid fackers, mabye I ken gat Geydite 2 kass har; no weit dat wodnt wurk

[10:07] <Dr_Xadium> Now you listen to me, young lady-- this is an extremely dangerous situation-- the wrong stimulus could conceivably cause her mind to implode!
[10:11] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> fack u returd
[10:11] <Cést_la_V> Chibiusa-chan!!
[10:11] <Dr_Xadium> She's... floating in the air...
[10:12] <Cést_la_V> X-chan, look out!!
[10:12] * Dr_Xadium tries to deflect her

[10:12] <Dr_Xadium> She's trying... to latch onto my face...
[10:13] <.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> dnt pat up a fite itall B al rite

[10:14] <Cést_la_V> What the hell
[10:14] * Cést_la_V tries to pry Chibiusa-chan's arms from around X-chan's neck

[10:26] * spiritflame moves

[10:26] <Cést_la_V> Wait!! Look...
[10:26] <Dr_Xadium> Jedite's trembling and sweating...
[10:26] <Cést_la_V> Being close to a girl often has that effect on men :)
[10:26] <Dr_Xadium> Heh... No, he's really struggling...
[10:27] <Cést_la_V> The wings are fading in and out...
[10:27] <Dr_Xadium> He's teleported away!
[10:27] <Dr_Xadium> Get Hotaru in the TARDIS... nothing can teleport in there, the interior is another dimension altogether.
[10:28] <spiritflame> I will carry her
[10:28] <Cést_la_V> What the heck is going on?!
