She Said Do You Know Who Shah Jahan Is

[20:46] <EVA-04> ["Yanmei? How's everything in your end?"-
[20:47] <EVA-04> The Synch Test had been well underway by now. The Plug had been inserted, the LCL pumped, the synchronisation process begun. The Bunnies were watchful, of course, monitoring all the results, but everything seemed to be going smoothly…
[20:52] <Yanmei> "Same old?" Yanmei opened her eyes halfway at the question. She'd been… distracted so far, her thoughts on many things instead of connecting with 04. Any minute now, they would probably pick up on it and complain about her low synch ratio. But hell…
[21:02] <EVA-04> ["Your Synch Ratio is a little low, Yanmei. Are you alright?"]
[21:03] <Yanmei> "I'm fine, I'm fine. I'll try a little harder, okay?"
[21:07] <EVA-04> ["Just relax a little."]
[21:11] <Yanmei> "Yeah, I know." She tried to. Ended up thinking about Elizabeth and Isabelle instead. After this was one of their regular visits. And then after that…
[21:14] <EVA-04> ["…" An ominous pause. "T-There's an odd fluctuation occuring in the Synch Ratio…"]
[21:16] * Yanmei shifted uncomfortably. There sure was…
[21:25] * EVA-04 remained unmoving, silent…-
[21:25] <EVA-04> ["No, that fluctuation is definitely getting worse. Yanmei? Are you ok? Do you want us to cut the synch?"]
[21:28] <Yanmei> It took a little while for her to answer, and when she did her voice was edged with a slight drowsiness. "I can handle it…"
[21:36] <EVA-04> ["… No. No, cut the synch. Now!"-
[21:36] <EVA-04> ["Urgh, it's not responding- oh no, it's just made it worse! The nerve pulses are reversing, the synch is going nuts! We can't see anything about the pilot…"-
[21:37] <EVA-04> ["Damnit! Has it gone berserk?!"-
[21:37] <EVA-04> ["It… It looks like. One of those weird dormant berserk states…"-
[21:37] <EVA-04> ["N-Not good…"]
[21:41] <Yanmei> The entry plug was, naturally, silent by now. Its lone occupant sat with her eyes closed peacefully, violet hair suspended in LCL.
#1[13:44] <EVA-04> ["… Nerve pulses returning to normal. Synchronisation ratio normalising. Yanmei…?"]
[13:45] <Yanmei> "Mmph." Yanmei stirred sleepily. "What?"
[13:46] <EVA-04> ["Are you alright?"]
[13:47] * Yanmei opened her eyes, gazing at the communication window blearily. "…do you know who Shah Jahan is?"
[13:47] <EVA-04> ["Er… What?" Marianne turned to the Bunnies. "… I uh…"-
[13:48] <EVA-04> ["… I could do a database search." Said Frederic awkwardly.]
[13:49] <Yanmei> "Well, it's not urgent, I guess?" Yanmei sat up properly, rubbing her eyes. "Sorry. Did anything happen while I was down?"
[13:50] <EVA-04> ["EVA-04 seemed to go berserk, but it didn't do anything…"]
[13:51] <Yanmei> "Oh. Well, good. That was considerate." She reached for her controls again, just to stabilize herself. "Shall we continue?"
[13:52] <EVA-04> ["No, I don't think so, not today."]
[13:54] <Yanmei> "Hm?" She couldn't blame them, when she stopped to think about it. The last time something like this had happened. "All right, Marianne! Maybe we could head out to lunch or something after I get cleaned up?"
[13:54] <EVA-04> ["S-Sure, that sounds good."]
[13:55] * Yanmei beamed. "Thanks! I'll try to hurry."
[13:59] <EVA-04> ["Alright. Let's pull out the Entry Plug and get her cleaned up."]
