Stop! Hammertime

[23:33:08] <padri> Katie makes a snowman!
[23:33:15] <Roget> Are they all security people having a snowball fight?
[23:33:15] * Poke has joined #origins-ic
[23:33:24] <ProcyonLotor> A good number of them
[23:33:25] <Wixelt> Wilson is in his lab.
[23:33:38] <ProcyonLotor> Maybe like 12?
[23:35:12] <Wixelt> Wilson takes a sup of coffee
[23:36:37] <Sirgoldfish> Dan goes outside to smoke when he notices the men having a snow ball fight. "Wow… just wow."
[23:37:09] <Roget> Marty cowers
[23:37:14] <Roget> too many people
[23:37:51] <DrSavage> Does Randall see Katie making a snow man?
[23:38:02] <padri> Mebbe. Mebbe not.
[23:38:19] <Sirgoldfish> Dan notices a pathetic Marty. "Hey what is wrong?"
[23:39:50] <padri> Dan is outside, too?
[23:40:26] <Roget> Marty just starts walking inside.
[23:40:31] <Sirgoldfish> (Yes just look.)
[23:41:39] <Wixelt> Wilson takes some measurements
[23:42:03] <padri> She makes her snowman into a snow-ghost.
[23:42:22] <Riemann> Wilson finds that he has a negative scalar value. How is this possible?~
[23:43:01] <Sirgoldfish> "Katie remember, don't eat the yellow snow!" Dan chuckles.
[23:43:20] <Wixelt> Wilson shrugs and continues taking measurements.
[23:43:21] <padri> Katie looks up at Dan briefly before returning to her snowghost.
[23:43:57] <Riemann> Katie is not amused
[23:43:58] <DrSavage> Randall heads over to Katie if he sees her.
[23:44:21] <Wixelt> Wilson hits something with a hammer.
[23:44:27] <Sirgoldfish> ~I thought it was funny.~
[23:44:30] <Riemann> It hits back
[23:44:40] <Wixelt> "What the-"
[23:44:45] <padri> Katie is too busy with her snowghost to notice Randall.
[23:45:12] <DrSavage> "What are you making, little one?"
[23:45:30] <Wixelt> Wilson gets a larger hammer, and brings it down on the thing with all his might
[23:47:10] <Riemann> It cracks, and a soft sigh can be heard from the destroyed hammer.
[23:47:34] <Riemann> The worlds first sentient hammer is no more
[23:48:42] <Wixelt> Wilson stares at the hammer. He blinks a couple of times before sniffing his coffee to see if anyone has tampered with it.
[23:49:00] <Riemann> It does /not/ smell vaguely acidic
[23:49:19] <Riemann> It's just a weird day for Wilson
[23:49:43] <Wixelt> Wilson slowly sets the coffe down on the table and fetches some hammer repair supplies
[23:50:38] <padri> "A snowghost."
[23:50:45] <padri> "Like Doc has."
[23:51:03] <Riemann> He must become a modern day Frankenstein
[23:51:20] <Riemann> He'll need lightning if he truly wants to revive the hammer (For Wixelt)
[23:51:22] <Riemann> He must become a modern day Frankenstein
[23:51:43] <Wixelt> Wilson stares at the hammer
[23:52:42] <Riemann> He sees a broken hammer, killed before its time
[23:53:07] <DrSavage> "What do you mean, little one?"
[23:53:14] <Wixelt> He stares some more
[23:54:39] <Riemann> A sense of shame washes over him. What if the hammer was friendly? It was, after all a hammer. Hitting someone might be how it says hello
[23:55:28] <Wixelt> Wilson wonders if there's such thing as a lightning gun.
[23:56:51] <Riemann> Probably somewhere. But that's not as dramatic as hoisting the hammer to the heavens, waiting for lightning to strike
[23:57:32] * Roget has quit (Quit: time for studying!)
[23:57:54] <Wixelt> Wilson takes the hammer to the highest point on the roof, straps a bunch of metal to it and waits abut 20 metres away.
[23:59:12] <Sirgoldfish> Dan sees Wilson from outside. "Has everyone gone insane!?"
[00:01:02] <Sirgoldfish> Dan sees Randall "You look not crazy. How are you? nice to meet you."
[00:01:07] <Wixelt> Wilson waits patiently.
[00:01:25] <Wixelt> Whether he hallucinated or not, he needs some freshair.
[00:02:22] * Balthazaar has joined #origins-ic
[00:03:09] <DrSavage> Randall merely glances at Dan. "Yes. Good to meet you."
[00:04:45] <Sirgoldfish> "I am Daniel Pinkerton. I would like to apologize, it seems everyone has gone mildly insane and I am desperate for interaction."
[00:06:51] * ZombieRaptor has quit (Ping timeout: 184 seconds)
[00:07:59] * ZombieRaptor has joined #origins-ic
[00:10:17] <Riemann> Dan finds himself staring at a statue of a man, unresponsive to his words
[00:10:30] <DrSavage> "I am /not/ insane."
[00:12:14] <Sirgoldfish> "I know that, so what exactly is your background?"
[00:13:00] <DrSavage> "Virologist. A Doctor."
[00:13:34] <Sirgoldfish> "I am a /negotiator/."
[00:17:46] <DrSavage> "Are you now?" He doesn't look back.
[00:20:42] * Sirgoldfish has quit (Quit: ajax IRC Client)
[00:35:44] <Wixelt> Wilson contiues to crouch on the roof, waiting for lightning to strike
[00:36:57] <Riemann> A freak thunderstorm appears, striking the repaired hammer before disapating
[00:38:04] <Wixelt> "Well, cool"
[00:38:20] <Wixelt> (Did anyone else see the strike?)
[00:38:33] <Riemann> (Nope)
[00:38:53] <Wixelt> (Was it a hallucination?)
[00:39:00] <Riemann> (Also nope)
[00:39:05] * Turncoat has joined #origins-ic
[00:39:18] <Wixelt> (Is the hammer alive?)
[00:39:30] <Riemann> The hammer, now slightly melted, moves ever so slightly
[00:39:37] <Riemann> It looks like it wants to be used
[00:40:10] <Wixelt> Wilson picks up the hammer
[00:41:14] <Wixelt> Wilson lifts the hammer above his head.
[00:41:35] <Riemann> It feels… happy
[00:41:43] <Riemann> It wants to hit things
[00:41:47] <Riemann> To build
[00:42:03] <Riemann> Images of a treehouse in the summer float through Wilson's mind
[00:42:36] <Wixelt> Wilson runs downstairs and out of the front of the base, still holding the hammer.
[00:43:42] <Riemann> Where is Wilson heading?
[00:44:04] <Wixelt> Outside
[00:44:18] <Wixelt> Just rifght outside the base.
[00:44:27] <Riemann> Well, obviously. But I need more direction than that. What does he plan on doing?
[00:45:41] <Wixelt> What does the hammer want him tod o?
[00:45:46] <Riemann> Hammer
[00:46:26] <Wixelt> Wilson taps the ground lightly with the hammer.
[00:46:26] <Riemann> As Wilson runs, he begins to think of all the things he could hammer. Why didn't he go into construction
[00:46:47] <Wixelt> ~Because science is about hammers too.~
[00:46:49] <Riemann> He feels some excitement, but it lacks /purpose/
[00:47:34] <Riemann> That was a warm up. The real show, has yet to begin
[00:49:01] <Riemann> Wilson notices some construction materials in the distance. Perhaps someone was building a shed, or repairing. The details are trivial. The important thing is, there are nails.
[00:49:26] <Wixelt> Wilson sprints towards the thr shed
[00:50:03] <Riemann> As he reaches the construct that will soon be a shed, elation overcomes him.
[00:50:07] <Riemann> This is what life is about
[00:50:39] <Wixelt> Wilson hammers things
[00:51:04] <Riemann> Emotions course through him as he hammers
[00:51:10] <Riemann> Contentedness
[00:51:13] <Riemann> Excitement
[00:51:15] <Riemann> Warmth
[00:51:44] <Wixelt> Wilson beams smiles
[00:52:10] <Riemann> Time flies by as he hammers, the world outside nothing more important than a broken nail
[00:52:36] <Riemann> The last nail hammered, he looks up at his work
[00:52:41] <Riemann> It's a shed.
[00:52:49] <Riemann> An /incredibly/ nice one, at that
[00:52:55] <Wixelt> Wilson sits inside the shed
[00:53:37] <Riemann> It is pleasantly warm inside the shed, the sunlight streaming through the strats in the ceiling
[00:53:57] <Riemann> He sees two nails, close together, that could hold a hammer
[00:54:14] <Wixelt> Wilson sets the hammer down
[00:54:21] <Wixelt> on the nails
[00:54:39] <Riemann> Although he no longer wants to go into construction, Wilson is feeling good. He's helped someone
[00:54:49] <Riemann> That really needed it
[00:55:24] <Riemann> Feelings of gratitude wash over him, and he realises that his work is done, and he has earned some rest
[00:55:33] <Wixelt> (Can Wilson keep the hammer)
[00:55:50] <Riemann> (Sure, why not)
[00:56:22] <Wixelt> Wilson picks up the hammer and heads back to base)
[00:57:16] <Riemann> The… intelligence, not the right word, but an approximation, recognises Wilson, and concedes to join him, dreaming of future hammerings
[00:58:12] <Wixelt> Wilson gets back to his room andd puts the hammer on his bedside. He must remember to hammer again soon.
[00:58:28] <Wixelt> iIt's extremely liberating
[00:58:37] <Riemann> Although he does not know it yet, he will dream of hammer later on tonight
[00:58:54] <Wixelt> (True that)
