Damn this job hurts

by Jean Giovannoni

Mary, I know it's been a while but we've been busy. I've been in my first bar fight, I got blown up, some green skinned Ogre (no really, I was told that's his NAME) jumped in on a fight we were having with Coil and Black Talon agents. It's been crazy.
 
So far as I can tell, my job is to get hit by things. Thankfully, Marvin and his crew have made me tough but that doesn't mean I LIKE being knocked literally through walls! I'm getting ahead of myself again, aren't I. Ok, let's back up a bit.
 
So I was helping Runeforce learn what happened to a friend of his and that ended up with me in a bar fight, which I have to admit was fun. I mean, I was in civilian ID but even without the field I'm so much tougher and stronger than I used to be. I think I may have hit a couple of them too hard. But we got what we were looking for and I met another meta named WindWalker who seemed interesting. So when we got wind that the trucks from the fight at the dam were all going to the same place and went to check it out I invited her along. No one seemed to complain.
 
We get there and Sandcrab tunneled us into the building. I have to say that's one of the cooler things about this job. Used to be I met a meta maybe once or twice a year during negotiations. Now I'm hanging out with people who can tunnel underground and teleport and bench press bank vaults and, for all I know, read minds and the like! And I'm one of them!! It's just exciting. All the time exciting. How did I live before just negotiating deal after deal? This life is so much cooler! Sure, I had to be kidnapped and have devices implanted in me against my will and there's voices in my head constantly telling me what to do but it's all worth it, right? Right?!?! Shit.

Sorry. Didn't mean to cry there. Back to the story. Where was I? Oh yeah, Sandcrab and tunneling. We pop up in the middle of this warehouse and there's a shit ton of Coil agents and even a couple of those Black Talon 'Mecha. So we start hitting things. Marvin reminds me that the field can do more than protect me so I start fucking with some of the setting in the middle of things. That was fun. Then I get knocked through a wall. Then one of the Mechs coats me in goop. Then while I'm coated in goop some big ass green ugly mother hubbard comes in THROUGH THE CEILING! I break out of the goop, flying tackle him and he starts yelling about bullies? It was weird. Well, I thought it was weird, then the call came out that the building was going to explode. So I grabbed a couple of the agents and left. I think Runeforce grabbed a whole bunch and Sandcrab got some and I have no damn idea what happened but that was a big Fing explosion! Marvin says he got it in slow motion so that's good. Gonna watch it when he sends the edited footage over. Which reminds me... MARVIN! Tell me you can set things so I don't go through so many damn walls! That was NOT FUN!!!!
 
So, Mary, to sum up... my life has gotten so damn weird. I'm just overwhelmed. And I seem to be dealing with it by punching things. I'm not sure that's what a decent therapist would call a good coping technique. I may need to work on that.

Alright. I need some place private to put down my thoughts and I guess this is it. The world has just gotten too weird for me to handle without a relief valve. But I'm too old for "Dear Diary". I need something else... Fuck it. Congratulations, diary. You...
