Blaze should have figured the warning signs for what they were. When the senses slow and the body insists on sinking into the nearest furniture, it ought to be a clue. But she has no memory of fatigue, no sense of whether her body is just complaining or injured or seriously needs to rest. So it’s not until their meeting at the Harp sees her stuffed with food and forced to actually sit down for a while that the torpor kicks in.

She’d like to shake it off, but the more level (and more inorganic) heads around her are able to point out that that’s not how human biology works.

She’s yawning uncontrollably when they materialize aboard her one-room jumpship. It wakes up for them with a soft hum, lights revealing a cabin just big enough for both she and Hughes to move around. Every inch of the clean metal plating looks like it’s part of some compartment or pull-out section, and that includes the floor. To sharp Exo senses it might look a bit patchwork, too: different panels have subtly different finishes; signs of repair are everywhere. There’s little sign of home comforts: just one cushy pilot’s chair, Blaze’s helmet clipped alongside it.

I’m… going to power up the life-support systems,” the Ghost says, swooping over to the controls.

Blaze tries to talk through her next yawn. “Oh… yyyeah. Good thinking. Uh.” She looks up at Hughes and waves a hand toward the star-speckled view up front. “Welcome to Earth orbit.”

Of all the things Hughes thought he would experience during this swap, seeing Earth for the first time - let alone from space - was not one of them. Despite the small, cramped space, the seemingly patchwork ship, and all the other details his (extra) sensitive mind is picking up right now, the only thing that has his attention is the view.

"Wow." Normally, he'd be breathless from a view like this. Today, however, he's simply stunned. "This view... this is amazing." Part of his brain reminds him that he needs to take care of Blaze right now, since she's not used to having a human body and all that entails. The rest is searching for the right words to encompass the beauty of what's in front of him.

He's not going to care if it's a long night. He could stare out at this view for days.

"Weapons?" Hughes hasn't taken any time to explore his current body. The parts that are relevant - the faster processing, the more efficient movements, the amazing eyesight - have all been analyzed, but past that? Well, he's out of sorts, so he's allowed to not be as curious as normal? He's almost to the point over stimulated. Given the situation they're in, he's honestly glad he took the time to set aside his own weapons before coming into the Nexus before this whole thing happened. Blaze didn't need that addition to things that could hurt her. "Probably for the best."

Finally, he pulls himself away from the view to look at Blaze and holy damn that weapons cache. "Wow." That seems to be his favorite word right now. "Are they all yours?"

Being attached to weapons is nothing new to Hughes. Whether each one is unique in its own way or it's a favored set of them, he's certainly seen similar things and doesn't find it odd in the least. "Sounds like you know every piece of these weapons. I take it you've been taking care of the repairs and rebuilding as well?" He hopes that doesn't sound offensive, but it's obvious from looking at them that they've needed some love over their time with Blaze. Regular use of any weapon will do that, though.

Hughes can't help but chuckle at the yawn. He's been there before, that place where you tell yourself you can stay up 'just a little longer' before you hit the hay.

That place where you don't want to fall asleep for fear of what you might see.

"Got any good reading materials that aren't classified that I could look at? I could stare at the sky for a while, but I do like learning new things while I can." Is there a way for an exo to smile? Because if so, Hughes is trying for that facial expression right now.

...and he's just not going to talk about how sore Blaze is going to be in the morning if she doesn't have any real bedding in here. There will be pain killers provided instead.

Now it's Hughes turn to blink at his companion.

"I didn't think I needed to sleep, so I thought I'd do some reading." Beat. "...I need to sleep, too, don't I?"

I'm super excited!

He vaguely remembers her Sparrow, but he's not exactly looking forward to running around by himself in her body. Sure, he has Ghost around if something goes terribly wrong, but what about his body? He's sure as hell not going to just walk away while she's sleeping in his body in space in this tiny tin can of a ship and--

"...did you say thrust pack?" Oh sure, now he's curious. "What's that and how does it work?"

Both, obviously! XD

Every part of Hughes' current exo body is humming with excitement. He's never had a chance to try something like this. Will never have a chance again, likely. To jump that high... it would be like soaring short distances through the sky. What an amazing feeling that must be. He wants to try so badly right now...

But he can't bring himself to leave Blaze behind. Even in times of peace, he can't get over leaving a comrade in arms alone without some promise of safety. Today is no exception.

"You're going to need a lot more sleep than you think," Hughes says after a minute. "After the hell we've been through? I'm gonna guess you'll be out for at least nine or ten hours." Slowly, he turns around and gives what he hopes is the most smile-like expression he can make. "Besides, if no one's there to laugh at me when I land ass-over-tea kettle, who's going to stop me from lying when I say I did it perfectly from the start? Except Verity, and that answer doesn't count."

Sorry, Blaze, but it looks like you're stuck with him for now. Between comrade-in-arms desires and a subtle Dad Mode coming on, there's no way Hughes is leaving right now. The thrust pack will just have to wait a bit.

"My body needs that much sleep after a day like today. After the hell we've been through, it's a wonder you didn't pass out on your feet already."

Watch closely as Hughes crosses his arms in front of his chest and gets angry without raising his voice. He has a fantastic 'son, just don't' look that he would love to be pulling right now, but he'll make do with the dimmed eye circuits and tapping his fingers on his forearms in a slow, methodical manner. Blaze may be upset and shouting, but she's also exhausted. It certainly doesn't hurt that he's stronger than her at the moment, either. She's a kid throwing a tantrum and that's nothing new to him.

"Look, I get that this whole situation is fucked up and that some time alone would probably be nice. However, if something were to happen to you while you're in my body, I doubt you'll know enough to respond appropriately. The best thing we can do is stay together right now."

If Hughes could roll his eyes right now, he would. This has been a pretty fantastic temper tantrum, one to even rival those of his firecracker of a daughter. It's almost endearing. Almost. Blaze is still likely to get an earful about the incident after she's gotten some sleep and they've figured out how to get back into their own bodies.

But... wait a second. "Are you... sleeping with a gun?" Sure, the safety's probably on, but... what.
bestdadinamestris: (Blaze)
From: [personal profile] bestdadinamestris
She can argue all she wants - he's not going to let her off easily.

"Uh huh." It seems dangerous to try and take it from her, so he'll just watch her a little more closely while she sleeps. "You get some rest, then, and I'll do some reading for a while." He's assuming Ghost can point him in the direction of some reading material. "Good night, Blaze."

Sounds like an exo with a gun problem. ;P

Although he keeps a wary ear open for signs of trouble from Blaze, Hughes is happy to read through anything and everything he can get his hands on. With the upgraded processing power, he cruises through the mission reports and ancient texts first. It seems a nice way to get to know his sleeping friend a little better. He skips the lectures on military philosophy, though, because he gets enough of that in his own world.

Those pictures, though, are going to hold his attention for a long time. He's never seen buildings like that or dreamed of such beautiful places. It's amazing to see the differences between his world and Blaze's and it helps cement what the texts were talking about. A win-win all around.

=P

That is a lot of information to parse through, and he's certainly not going to be able to make sense of all of it tonight. Still, it's amusing to know Blaze is the kind of exo who believes in the 'try, try again' method of making things work. If only Hughes could introduce her to a few friends back home with that attitude...

Dream cycles are nothing new to Hughes. He's kept watch while others sleep many times. The first one passes by with only a little attention given to it. When the second comes around, though, he becomes more interested, given the physical response to the dreams. That much is not normal. People have a tendency to wake themselves when nightmares get bad, but Blaze seems intent to push through them. She's going to feel even worse in the morning if this continues.

When Ghost drifts over, Hughes follows. Something isn't right, he can feel it. Carefully, he rests a hand on the back of Blaze's (err, his?) head, to keep her from hurting herself when he wakes her. "Blaze?" His voice is soft, warm despite the body its coming from. "Hey, can you hear me? Wake up, buddy."

"Whoa! Calm down there." The extra quick reflexes are certainly a help in getting out of the way before Blaze is up and on her feet. They're also fast enough to catch her before she falls over or runs face first into something. He gently holds her in place, doing his best to keep the touch as light as possible until she's more cognizant of what's going on. "Careful - don't want to hurt yourself."
