Lovers Transformation

[22:34] <Minaplo> [They returned to the battleship a few minutes after the end of the fight.-
[22:35] <Minaplo> [They were allowed to shower and put on some very loose one-size-fits-all robes for modesty as they were directed to the medical wing…-
[22:37] <Minaplo> [People were waiting to greet them. Marianne wordlessly hugged Yanmei, whilst Rei burst into tears and nearly tackled Isaiah- she was so upset it took her a full minute to realise that his form had changed. By the time they passed on Rei was looking quite red in the face and somewhat dizzy.-
[22:39] <Minaplo> [In the medical wing itself, Yanmei would be greeted by a relieved Mingzhu, one who had clearly been incredibly terrified; Asuka (who she swore was only there for some headache tablets), and little Lizzie, who leapt on Isaiah with cries of "Dadaadaadaa!" and began to cry when they had to take her away.-
[22:41] <Minaplo> [The next day and a half… Tests were done. Full physicals. Double-full physicals, really. Their blood was taken. Their brains were scanned, X-Rays mapped their bones and organs. Every inch of them was measured. They were placed on scales, their weight recorded. Isaiah had to be placed on a drip as well, since his body was, transformation or no, severely dehydrated.-
[22:42] <Minaplo> [Yanmei and Isaiah were both placed in an empty room save for a table and a tower of blocks, and told to knock the tower over through sheer will.-
[22:42] <Minaplo> [The blocks remained resolutely undisturbed.-
[22:43] <Minaplo> [Eventually, the testing, the quick medical work, the examinations would all come to an end, and Doctor Tenma would summon her to his office… She'd get to glance Isaiah on the way, a welcome sight considering the testing was so intensive she hadn't seen him since the day before.]
06[22:49] * Yanmei brightened instantly, calling out to him. It had been a rough day and a half, and he was such a sight for sore eyes~ That aside, she'd been a little worried. Was he still suicidal? He'd seemed happy while being reunited with everyone…
[22:51] <Minaplo> [He turned, his face lighting up. He was still resting in a bed, but he waved. "Hey~"-
[22:51] <Minaplo> [Tenma's office door opened, Tenma peering out at them both.]
01[23:01] <Yanmei> "…" she gave the doctor an acknowledging nod, and then tried crossing over to Isaiah for a quick kiss. "Please wait a minute?" she called to the orderlies wheeling him along.
[23:03] <Minaplo> [Isaiah was all too happy to return the quick kiss. "Don't you worry. We'll be done before you know it."]
01[23:09] <Yanmei> "We'd better be?" She briefly touched her forehead to his and squeezed his hand. "You get some rest in the meantime, ok?"
[23:09] <Minaplo> ["I will. Don't be too long~"]
06[23:10] * Yanmei nodded, giving him one last smile before standing back and letting him continue on. "…" -
03[23:11] * Retrieving #nervfrance modes…
01[23:11] <Yanmei> Finally, she turned to face Tenma. "Hello, Doctor."
[23:11] <Minaplo> ["Captain Zhang." He let her into the office, closing the door behind her. "Take a seat."]
06[23:12] * Yanmei did so, primly folding her hands in her lap. "So… have you all learned much?"
[23:14] <Minaplo> ["Well, let's see. You're in good health… Better than good health. I've never seen someone so healthy."]
01[23:17] <Yanmei> "Well… I do try to take care of myself?" she grinned.
[23:17] <Minaplo> ["Allow me to explain. We'll start with your list of injuries. Your permanent nervous damage to your knee, your pulmonary damage- to your lungs, so on…"-
[23:18] <Minaplo> ["If I didn't know better I'd say you never injured your leg in the first place, and your lungs are completely untouched."]
01[23:21] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei glanced down at her hands for a moment. She'd known about the leg being fixed. It was one of the first things she'd noticed. Come to think of it, her chest felt freer than usual as well… "I went through a lot of… changes," she said slowly, as if that was some sort of explanation.
[23:21] <Minaplo> ["No kidding?" He held up a clipboard.]
01[23:25] <Yanmei> "If I'm that healthy, I guess that means you'll be releasing me soon right~?" She reached out to see what was on it. Presumably a list of the changes they were talking about.
[23:27] <Minaplo> [The paper was facing towards him, so she couldn't see much at all.-
[23:27] <Minaplo> ["Well, there's no reason to keep you." Said Doctor Kenzo. "And this isn't the first time something like this has happened."]
01[23:29] <Yanmei> "Right. Blanc and de Pteres… and now Isaiah, too. How is he doing?"
03[23:44] * Tyra is now known as Zack
Session Time: Sat Feb 15 00:00:00 2014
[00:09] <Minaplo> ["That's why I wanted to talk to you. I'm releasing him into your care- we've taken good care of him, but he's still quite weak. Normal activities -running, jumping, playing- are fine, but anything too strenuous, anything involves hours upon hours of physical activity, or injury… No. I've taken him off active duty for a week and a half. You're to make sure he gets proper rest at night,
[00:09] <Minaplo> and eats three square meals a day."]
01[00:14] <Yanmei> "I think I can manage that?" Yanmei beamed. "I would have begged the Colonel to give him a break anyway. He needs it?"
[00:16] <Minaplo> ["Indeed." He nodded. "Now, we have a full record of your physical changes, and there are a few things I want to draw attention towards."]
06[00:16] * Yanmei nodded, focusing on him intently.
[00:17] <Minaplo> ["First and foremost, you've grown three inches, and you've gained about 13 pounds."]
03[00:19] * Zack is now known as ZackAFK
01[00:20] <Yanmei> "That much, huh?" She frowned slightly. "Hm…"
[00:22] <Minaplo> ["Three inches, 13 pounds is a perfectly healthy growth ratio, of course. From what tests we've done we can verify that the ratio of muscle to fat in your body is vastly in the majority of muscle."-
[00:23] <Minaplo> ["However, it does mean your proportions have changed. Compared to previously, your legs are longer in relation to your body. In fact, your legs have become a good deal longer and stronger- you'll find that your stride has increased and your running speed will definitely improve. However," He smiled, "Your wardrobe is probably going to suffer, because there are dozens of little proportion
[00:23] <Minaplo> changes throughout your body. Your neck is slightly longer. Your shoulders are a little broader… So on and so forth."]
01[00:28] <Yanmei> "Yeah. I was just thinking about that…" Yanmei glanced down at one of her shoulders, rolling it experimentally. "It's good that it's not all fat, but… Oh well. I'm sure I can go shopping wherever we end up docking next."
[00:29] <Minaplo> ["I do believe there's actually a tailor's shop on the promenade that might be worth looking into."]
01[00:32] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei seemed to be thinking very hard about this all of a sudden. "I could give them a few simple pieces to alter in the meantime, sure. Some for Isaiah, too… He's gotten taller too, I can tell."
[00:40] <Minaplo> ["He's gone through similar changes, yes, although not so much in the leg. His shoulders have become broader, his arms a little longer…" Kenzo nodded, and he handed over several pages. "Here's a full list of changes- you should find the data helpful in at least finding new clothes."]
06[00:43] * Yanmei shifted through them slowly, reading. "Hm. Out of curiosity, we're the only people with access to this information, right?"
[00:45] <Minaplo> ["Yes."]
01[00:47] <Yanmei> "You're a good man, Doctor Tenma."
[00:48] <Minaplo> [He laughed. "I suppose. Funny. This time yesterday I thought you were going to hit me."]
06[00:50] * Yanmei flashed him a little smile, as if to say 'Who, me?' -
01[00:52] <Yanmei> "I would so never? But next time, you should tell the scientists and doctors around here to pace themselves."
[00:53] <Minaplo> ["I'll keep that in mind." He handed Yanmei two documents. "Sign these, and then you and Isaiah are free to go."]
06[00:54] * Yanmei happily scrawled her name on them both. "It's been a pleasure~"
[00:54] <Minaplo> [He smiled. "I'm sure it will be."]
01[06:39] <Yanmei> It would be a bit longer before the two of them could leave. A quick phone call to Marianne about their discharge and a short wait later would find them both rewarded with some simple issued training clothes - easy sweatpants and t-shirts with the NERV logo stamped on them, essentially. -
01[06:42] <Yanmei> There was also the matter of collecting a wheelchair for Isaiah, which Yanmei used to manuever him up to the officer sleeping quarters. The trip was not as difficult as she'd pumped herself up for it being… Could she attribute that to her weightgain and newfound height? It puzzled her faintly, even as she came to and opened the door to their old room. "Home sweet home~"
[06:45] <Minaplo> ["Good to be back." Said Isaiah brightly, stretching. "Hmm. Do I even need a wheelchair…?"]
01[06:46] <Yanmei> "Doubt it? They said that walking wouldn't be a problem. Tomorrow, I'll get someone to return it."
[06:49] <Minaplo> ["Uh-huh. So you just wanted to push me around for a bit, hmm?"]
01[06:52] <Yanmei> "Admit it. You enjoyed it."
[06:57] <Minaplo> ["Hmm… I would've liked it better if you'd carried me in your arms instead~"]
01[06:57] <Yanmei> "It's not too late for that~?" Yanmei flexed.
[06:59] <Minaplo> ["Ooh, go on then~"]
01[07:01] <Yanmei> "All right, I will!" She leaned over, and braced herself, slipping one arm under his legs and the other around his back. Could she do it?
[07:02] <Minaplo> [She could! He was rather heavy, but not too heavy… He slipped his arms around her neck and laughed. "My Prince~"]
01[07:09] <Yanmei> "Oof. You really did gain weight?" She teased, stumbling over to the bed. For a second or two, she fumbled around with the awkwardness of setting him back down, and in the end they both sort of… plopped over onto the bed.
[07:14] <Minaplo> ["Oof."-
[07:15] <Minaplo> [He threw his arms around her middle and began to drag her onto the bed proper- and off him. "Still getting used to your new body, hm, butterfingers?"]
01[07:22] <Yanmei> "Heeey. It's been less than 48 hours? I'd say I'm learning pretty fast!"
[07:23] <Minaplo> ["Hmm. I have to say, I agree. You're doing way, way better than Raphael did when they turned him into Gendo…"]
06[07:31] * Yanmei snuggled up to him. "I wonder if Blanc and de Pteres went through this when they changed. Like, it's my body, so I should know how to use it intuitively, right? But there's a part of me that's, like, 'this isn't really my body. I'm in some dream. When I wake up, I'll be back to the old aches and pains'."
[07:32] <Minaplo> ["Hm." He frowned.-
[07:32] <Minaplo> ["Hmm. I don't think I've… Thought like that." He turned to look at Yanmei. "Maybe you're afraid it'll be snatched away?"]
01[07:33] <Yanmei> "Could be," she admitted. "Or… maybe I just need a little more adjusting time."
[07:40] <Minaplo> ["I don't suppose Yanmei of the Revolution has a bit of sick leave…?"]
06[07:43] * Yanmei groaned. "We'll see? I have a bunch of strict taskmasters now. Fontaine and Miss Lucille and Marianne can be pretty stern if she needs my signature on stuff. How do Directors do this stuff, day in and day out?"
[07:44] <Minaplo> ["I was under the opinion they had underlings to do it, so they could go off and drink beer and seduce innocent young men."-
[07:44] <Minaplo> [Isaiah smiled innocently.]
06[07:45] * Yanmei stroked her chin. "So what you're saying is to dump all that on my XO and secretary. Come to think of it, that's kind of why they're there…"
[07:46] <Minaplo> ["Exactly!"-
[07:46] <Minaplo> [Isaiah suddenly made a face.]
01[07:48] <Yanmei> "Hm? What is-?" She stopped and then made a face herself. "Bleh. Don't bring Orlov up when we're trying to relax, okay?"
[07:48] <Minaplo> ["Sorry, sorry…"-
[07:48] <Minaplo> ["Should I try to take your mind off it?"]
01[07:52] <Yanmei> "Hmm. Think you can~?" she snuggled closer.
[07:52] <Minaplo> [He put his arms around her, pulling her closer. "Well… Let's talk about something I've been looking forward to." He murmured, his voice a purr. "Something… I want. Something I need…"]
01[07:55] <Yanmei> "Oh yeah?" She smooched him tenderly.
[07:59] <Minaplo> ["Mmhm~" He smooched in return.-
[07:59] <Minaplo> ["Something hot, and smooth…"]
01[08:00] <Yanmei> "Oh -yeah-?" She began tugging at his shirt.
[08:01] <Minaplo> ["Mmmhm~" He helped, his hands holding hers. He leaned in close…-
[08:01] <Minaplo> ["A big fresh bowl of teriyaki chicken noodles…"]
01[08:02] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei seemed to waver between a pout and some other confused expression for a moment. Then burst out laughing.
[08:03] <Minaplo> ["Hey!" He grinned, and started to laugh with her. He jabbed her in the ribs. "I haven't eaten properly in over a -week-. I could murder a cow right about now."]
01[08:07] <Yanmei> "Let's have at the phone, then? We'll call something up." She shifted upright.
[08:22] <Minaplo> [About ten minutes later, the door would open, providing them both with various meals. Isaiah had eventually ordered a small plate of dim sims and chicken wings to go with his noodles…]
06[08:25] * Yanmei had ordered a humble milkshake for herself, and a few slices of buttered toast, all of which she consumed slowly. Between bites, she told him of the things that had gone on in his absence. -
01[08:26] <Yanmei> "…and then we come to Vercingetorix," she sighed, staring down at her last slice.
[08:27] <Minaplo> ["Vercingetorix? Go on…"]
01[08:28] <Yanmei> "He died, Isaiah. Mortally injured while rescuing a bunch of people from the Synfront…"
[08:30] <Minaplo> ["Oh…" Isaiah looked down for a minute, staring at his half-finished bowl of noodles.-
[08:34] <Minaplo> ["Rei, how's she…?"]
01[08:36] <Yanmei> "I… don't know. She and Alphonse have secluded themselves away? At least there's someone to look over her."
[08:36] <Minaplo> ["Hmm… Well, I suppose he's the best person there is for her. She didn't seem that depressed when- er, y'know. She greeted me." He looked a little bashful.-
[08:36] <Minaplo> ["But between the tears and the blushing there wasn't time…"]
01[08:40] <Yanmei> "We could go visit her soon. If she came out to see you, then it's probably a good sign, right?" she offered him a small smile.
[08:46] <Minaplo> ["Yeah…"-
[08:46] <Minaplo> ["… You're starting to 'miss' him, aren't you?"]
01[08:50] <Yanmei> "I wouldn't say 'miss'? He was a straight up jerk, but he was also a very powerful ally." She took another very long drink. "Aside from Rei, we also have to worry about Shinji. He's a wreck now."
[08:51] <Minaplo> ["Yeah?"]
01[08:52] <Yanmei> "He was with him when he died? And the, um… special abilities Vercingetorix had were transferred to him somehow. Ever since then, he's been isolated by the medical staff."
[08:57] <Minaplo> ["… How? To transfer abilities like that…"]
01[09:01] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei shifted uncomfortably. "I don't know the details of -how-, but… Vercingetorix's powers came from something that was unnaturally fused with his body. It could manifest itself visibly if he willed it too, and was actually pretty gross to look at? When Shinji reappeared on the ship, there was immediate visible evidence that the same thing had fused with him now."
[09:03] <Minaplo> ["What was it?"]
01[09:06] <Yanmei> "Like… this… gross eyeball thing. Um…" she fought to put it into words. "It's like a leftover from when Adam blew up during second impact. Like, part of its physical body? And when Angels die, their souls return there, but it's okay because they're asleep."
[09:10] <Minaplo> [Isaiah's face went white in a sort of disgusted way. "He put Adam's body in himself? He put it into Shinji?"]
01[09:13] <Yanmei> "Yeah…" She glanced back at her lunch, as if trying to will her appetite to restore itself. "Insane, huh?"
[09:14] <Minaplo> ["Absolutely." He sighed.-
[09:14] <Minaplo> ["-Shit-. I'm gonna have to declare Shinji off-limits now…"]
01[09:19] <Yanmei> "You can still talk to him over the phone or via stream or something. It might actually help…"
[09:21] <Minaplo> ["Hmm. I might do that, yeah." He smiled.-
[09:21] <Minaplo> ["So I'm back and it seems everyone's still kind of a wreck. Some things never change…"]
06[09:24] * Yanmei chuckled wearily. "Give us some time. We'll pick ourselves back up again? We have to, what with Metatron and Caine still out there…"
[09:27] <Minaplo> ["Ah, joy. Our insurmountable foes…"-
[09:27] <Minaplo> [He plucked a clump of noodles out of the bowl. "Say 'aaa'." He waved them at her.]
06[09:31] * Yanmei went along with it, gamely opening her mouth. "Aa?"
[09:39] <Minaplo> [Isaiah was all too happy to put his hot, thick noodles inside Yanmei's mouth. "Careful! They're still a bit hot."-
[09:40] <Minaplo> ["Are you sure you're happy with just toast…?"]
06[09:43] * Yanmei smirked at him while she chewed. "Unlike some people, I got actual hospital food today. I wouldn't mind a bit more… human contact, though~"
[09:44] <Minaplo> ["Hmmm…" He pondered this.-
[09:44] <Minaplo> ["I suppose I could always see if Asuka's up to spar?"]
06[09:49] * Yanmei made a face, sticking her tongue out at him a bit. "Human contact without bruises?" She tried snuggling up to him again, but it was difficult with the food in the way.
[09:58] <Minaplo> ["Hmm, well." He took a bite from a chicken wing, then disengaged, if only to push the food off the bed.-
[10:03] <Minaplo> ["… Before that, there's something I should say." He said, his tone becoming serious.]
01[10:03] <Yanmei> "Hm?" She drew back slightly, scrutinizing him.
[10:04] <Minaplo> ["…"-
[10:05] <Minaplo> [He laid down on his side, facing her, stroking her cheek with the back of his hand. "I wanted to thank you. I… It sounds strange, but I was -ready- to die. I didn't want to. I wanted nothing more than to walk away from all that, to come back here, but I was scared. Scared of what I'd become, scared of what I might do, scared of who I'd hurt…"-
[10:06] <Minaplo> ["I was so scared that I wasn't willing to risk anything more than a binary outcome: I die, or the world ends. But… You -came-. You risked absolutely everything to save me, to show me a third option, and…"-
[10:06] <Minaplo> [He bowed his head. Were those tears…?-
[10:07] <Minaplo> ["I don't think anyone has ever done something like that… Ever. Not in a million years. You… You really are absolutely one of a kind, and I'm so -grateful- that you love me as much as you do."]
01[10:20] <Yanmei> "You know I'd do -anything- for you." She gazed back at him warmly. "I'm… just happy I made it. That you held on until I reached you, even though you were on the brink." She shifted closer still. -
01[10:22] <Yanmei> "I don't want you ever going through that again? So this time… let's talk to each other more. You're not alone."
[10:25] <Minaplo> [He beamed. Honestly, lovingly beamed.-
[10:27] <Minaplo> ["Thank you. You won't be alone, either. I'll support you through thick and thin, right up until you quit being President of the World… In about thirty years' time."]
06[10:30] * Yanmei laughed, lightly, lovingly. "Thirty years is a -long- time. But thank you."
[10:32] <Minaplo> ["Don't mention it."-
[10:43] <Minaplo> [His hand left her cheek, travelling down her still-sensitive neck, to the collar of her shirt. The hand slid down, to the bottom hem, where it disappeared, quickly traveling up her now-unscarred body.-
[10:43] <Minaplo> ["There's… One problem."]
01[10:44] <Yanmei> "Hm?"
[10:45] <Minaplo> ["See, there's something I'm worried about." He murmured urgently. "I'm not entirely used to your body's new changes, you see, and I was wondering if, over the next… Say, few hours, you'd help me get reacquainted?"]
01[10:49] <Yanmei> "Well, then. I think I can gladly fulfill that request~" she grinned, and leaned in for yet another kiss.
[10:52] <Minaplo> [But Yanmei wouldn't be given just a kiss. He kissed her, full force, his entire body moving with him, both arms wrapping her up in their embrace. His skin was warm to the touch, as warm as it ever was. He embraced her, kissed her, made love to her like a man who, having walked through a desert, sees an oasis.-
[10:53] <Minaplo> [Reunited once more, their bodies entertwined, and their minds went to Eden- a clean, pure Eden, free of even the slightest taint of Adam.]
