“During the testing phases of the newer, less bulky EVA suit technologies, test subjects were quite pleased with the Mk1 variants as a fairly accurate control sample that could be expanded upon. Unfortunately, the irony was that the suit handled very poorly to expansions from within, as a test subject soon found out after the ill affects of a particularly suspicious eggsalad sandwich began to manifest in his innards.”
“In the wake of this experiment, testing on the more flexible Mk2 unit has begun with favorable results, and unrelated opportunistic testing has begun on the ability for living hosts to internally incubate foreign organics for extended periods of time…”
Eggs, in Ruby’s belly?? Shhhhh, it’s a secret to everyone~ :3c
the short version is that at face value, deacon has some very odd reactions to this mission.
the long version is that i feel this is another case of the like/dislike system not lining up with deacon’s character unless you dig deeper, as well as some interesting insight into deacon’s ability to go undercover.
obviously, this post contains spoilers for the mission “synth retention” and general plot spoilers for fallout 4.
a shout-out and thanks to @anneapocalypse for mentioning deacon’s reactions to this quest when she was first playing through it – this entire post was inspired by those conversations.
I don’t think they all ended up at the same university. Their interests are too different. Hanai would be in school double majoring in English and Education, for some reason I see Sakaeguchi going into economics, do NOT ask me why, and Suyama doing psychology.
They would however be within short train rides of each other. If they see each other, it’s way more frequently two of the three. Once every couple of weeks or so it’s all three of them together. Hanai is on the baseball team for his university, so he usually has a bit of homework to do, but it’s better to do it in Suyama and Sakaeguchi’s presence than alone back in his dorm room. He’s pretty good about it too, even with his other two datefriends present. He steals the desk of whoever’s dorm it is they’re in that weekend if not his own. Suyama and Sakaeguchi cuddle for a while, catching up on what’s been happening since they last saw each other (they all limit what they text each other—they like talking about it in person).
They do get impatient eventually and Hanai finishes up as best as he can, puts his stuff away and joins them (usually on one of their beds—not many dorm rooms with couches anywho). It’s a giant cuddlepile. Usually ends up with Suyama sitting in the middle, Sakaeguchi’s head in his lap and Hanai leaning on his other shoulder—that way they can see each other better while they talk.
Hanai and Suyama loooooove to spoil Sakaeguchi though. They kind of tag-team him when it comes to canoodling, Hanai usually pulls him into his lap and kisses his back, shoulders and neck while Suyama gets his lips. Sakaeguchi is just still like “I have two smart hot datefriends……!” and kind of still can’t believe it, he never thought he was anything special but every time he’s with one of them, they’re always kind of all over each other. Just, touching somehow. Hands, cuddling, kissing, even just leaning against each other.
Oh and don’t even get me started about Suyama cooking for the two of them. He makes them each like…two days’ worth of food when all three of them are together and Hanai and Sakaeguchi are like YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE TROUBLE…but both of them like thank you so much I wish I had your cooking all the time.
And if any of them has an exam coming up when they happen to be together, they make a game out of studying but all three of them are involved. Like if they get a certain number of questions right, they can break and makeout or something along those lines.
Also they’re all stupid cute when they all hold hands on their way to grab some coffee on campus. Sakaeguchi is in the middle usually c:
I have to think more on this I’m giving myself feelings help
Sorry this was late, anon. You gave me the prompt when my brain was off yesterday and I wanted to do it some justice.
While working in Tucson this past couple of weeks, I paid a visit to a vegetarian/vegan restaurant. The place was called The Tasteful Kitchen, and it was a great reminder to me that some fantastic dishes can be assembled with even the simplest of ingredients.
A perfect example of this is my curried egg salad sandwich. It combines cool cucumber with the bite of onion and a pungent kick of curry. The sandwich is extremely flavorful, and fairly healthy too–really, it’s simplicity at its finest.
Curried Egg Salad Sandwiches Makes 2 sandwiches
4 eggs 1 loaf rustic french bread 1 small cucumber 2 tbsp chopped onion 1 tbsp chopped chives 2 tbsp mayonnaise 1 tsp curry powder salt and pepper to taste
Put the eggs in a pot of cold water. Bring to a boil and cook for 9 minutes. Immediately drain and cover the eggs in cold water to cool.
Slice the loaf of bread in half horizontally, then again to make two sandwich portions. Thinly slice the cucumber and layer on the bottom portion of the bread.
Peel the hardboiled eggs and chop finely. In a bowl, mix with onion, chives, mayo and curry. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon onto the cucumber, top with remaining bread and enjoy.
