would yall want the ability to turn into a car?
“Not really? I don’t think it would be really useful and our size would just mean we’d end up small cars. Like go-kart type small. If someone wants to base kid car toys off us that’s fun if you run it by the Captain but I know that I personally don’t want the transformer thing.”
“I don’t think I’d be allowed since I’m not allowed anything motorized!”
“Hayday you know that you yourself are technically motorized right? So if you could turn into a car it would be a loophole to get out the whole ‘you only get a skateboard because reasons’ things.”
“Oh! Ohhhh! Zimmy you’re right! I change my mind I wanna be allowed to turn into a car!!”
“Stop giving him dangerous and dumb ideas.” Purl-Hew shoots Zimelu a glare from under his sunglasses then clears his throat. “This is all theoretical, but I think I agree with Ri. I also think that it would be more troublesome in the long run for maintenance, and I don’t want to see that added to the Captain’s plate.”
“I like us the way we are now, so I think it would confuse people if we could just suddenly do that.”
“And people learning that we could shoot lasers during the Rock Revolution didn’t confuse people?”
Zimelu’s tone borders on defensive but before Purl-Hew or Rin can come to the rescue, Eloni takes a deep breath and starts defending their own point.
“I never said it didn’t but the Captain took the time to clarify that it was a precaution installed for our protection and if need be for the protection of the fans. He gave a concrete explanation that did away with any of the hesitation they might have felt towards us because of the lasers. I just think that the whole transform-into-something-else thing might just be a bit too much.”
“Eh.” He shrugs a little. “I think it’s a cool idea.”
“Unsurprising, but comforting nonetheless.” A soft smile accompanies the commentary.
