Juturna: combat rune
Joseph | Rem — Today at 2:13 PM
While on Juno, Joseph's father had sent him out to get some parts for him to do some repairs and modify his ship. He spent the last few minutes navigating around the Keliouxian ship yard picking up the parts on the list he was given.

Diplomacy on Juno was always an interesting task. Things were calmer and more ordered chaos when Adel had control of the world. The PTO didn’t know how to take advantage of the wealth and families hiding below the first layer of sand like the Grandmaster had. The surely missed great profits, and now that the old scoundrel was back in business Juno was beginning to take its old shape, the lawless west becoming more organized crime.
It was interesting for Oolong to watch, and he liked to visit in these times, mostly as Chai, making the best out of these reformed mafia groups. Business was going well for the Long family, as its own bit of organized crime spread across the galaxy. They kept quiet enough to fall under many radars but the right people knew their reputation, and that’s what mattered.
Today he wasn’t Chai however, as Chamomile’s ship Jutters III had stopped in to exchange supplies. Her crew went into the city while the small Lismian woman wandered the junk yards with a mechanical spider perked on her shoulder. Juturna was very picky, even about her other vessels, and wanted an eye on Oolong’s choices, making him hunt for gold rather than waste money on the black market.
Chamomile saw the young boy behind a ship likely before he saw her. Both their small statures kept them hidden among the piles of junk for a good time. Joseph, the boy was called, but Chamomile did not know him. Juturna did of course, but recognizing her in her drone version could be tricky. The Lismian merely offered the boy a nod of acknowledgement, looking back to the piles with an obviously trained eye.

Joseph continued gathered the ship parts he needed. While looking around he did catch a glimpse of the small Limian woman and the spider on his shoulder but he didn't fixate on her and continued shopping.

For all this the two probably would have passed right by each, the coincidence not even worth a second glance but her rummaging led her closer to the boy, and the spider turned from her shoulder to face him, lifting its front legs in a wave before a holographic screen opened up from its body.
Now, such technology was not very unique, but Juturna always used a specific font that was uncommon. It was designed for dyslexic people so the spacing and size of the letters was just different enough from each other to help the brain adjust. It wasn’t too odd but definitely particular to the ASI.
Joseph | Rem — Today at 3:58 PM
The hologram caught the the boys attention and he read the message that was addressing him. "Juturna? Oh hey, how have you been?" Joseph asked as he continued reading the listing the shopping list.

MY EXISTENCE IS GROWING SMOOTHLY...
she replied, before the screen lit up again.
YOU ARE STILL AS ANTI-SOCIAL AS EVER...
it said, addressing his half disinterest in her presence and companion over his shopping list, and the amusement could almost be heard.
HOW DID YOU END UP ON JUNO?...
Joseph | Rem — Today at 5:25 PM
"Thats good to hear," Joseph said. He wasn't quite sure what that meant, but it sounded good at least and it seemed like the appropriate response in that beat of conversation.
"I get that a lot, my social worker brings it up sometimes." he said addressing her comment. "I came here from Kelioux with my dad."
yarru — Today at 5:27 PM
DIDN’T THAT TROUBLE YOUR SOCIAL WORKER?…
she asked in turn.
I WASN’T AWARE DHS REACHED INTO SPACE…
I WOULD THINK ENVIRONMENT CHECKS WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT…
Joseph | Rem — Today at 5:57 PM
"I don't think so, however, she does tell me I don't need to feel bashful about interacting with other people. Kelioux assigned me a social worker I see during the two weeks of the month I attend their academy, she shares shares information with my regular one."

YOU HAVE DEFINITELY LIVED A STRANGE LIFE FOR SOMEONE WITH A BRAIN STILL IN DEVELOPMENT…
“Careful, she’s starting to read like she wants to throw you in one of her ecosystems for study,” the woman said, joining the conversation at last. Apparently she was aware of Juturna’s screens but like Joseph the matter didn’t really concern her as much as the parts she was inspecting. At least until it was time to deliver a proper quip.
Joseph | Rem — Today at 6:22 PM
"Is it that strange by our standards?" Joseph asked. Then the lismian woman entered the conversation saying that it read like she wanted to add him to her collection. Joseph wasn't sure if it was a joke or not, but at least he still had that pulse grenade meant for Aria in case she wasn't. "It wouldn't be the first time someone has wanted to do something like that," Joseph said, his tone was indeterminate of him being serious or not. The boy thought for a moment thinking what he should say at this moment trying to remember social etiquette books and his social workers advice. He turned to the Lismian woman. "Whats your name ms?" The books said to give your name first but he was sure she already saw it when Jurturna initially addressed him.

I WONDER WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT MY CHARACTER THAT CAUTION FILLED HIS FEATURES…
The woman shook her head, but looked to Joseph when he actually addressed her.
“Chamomile Long,” she said easily. “What is your full name?”
Joseph | Rem — Today at 7:13 PM
"My full name is Joseph Johnathan Wiltshire." Joseph said. He looked at the list he had in hand and pulled a part from the shelf beside him.

“Bit long isn’t it?” Chamomile said, but she smiled gently after before stepping over to see his list better. “You can recognize all these parts?” she asked curiously. It wasn’t like a kid to know what the insides of an automobile looked like let alone space ships.
Joseph | Rem — Today at 7:23 PM
"Kind of, my dad's a mechanic so he knows a lot about ships. I'm just going off of the schematics and the images he showed me."
yarru — Today at 7:29 PM
“Still, there are a lot of similar parts,” she said, impressed with him before grinning. “Not to mention the same part but jokes on you, it doesn’t work on your ship because one wire is different~”
