    Five months ago:

    She woke up. Everything was new, at least to her. The strange, moving beings that seemed to be aware of her, the odd, off-geometric devices, even the bent rectangles that tied her down to the larger, straightened one. Humans. Machines. Straps. Table. She told herself. But how did she know what they were called? What were the odd noises associated with each of these things? Words. Yes, they were words. A word was a concept, able to be set loose through either a visual representation, a noise, or a simple thought. Yes, she could sense she was being given access to this information through some sort of process. Learning. How was she learning, though? It seemed that the knowledge just popped into her head. The humans... I understand the noises they make now...
    "Psy-I is demonstrating increasing awareness and understanding of its surroundings." One of them spoke into an odd, tiny machine in his hand. "Psy-R and Psy-S still appear comatose."
    "What... What's going on?" She was amazed that she had the capability to speak. She didn't feel that weird hole that sound emanated from--a mouth--yet she was able to produce the patterns of noise nonetheless.
    The human took a second to tell his device--his microphone? Recorder? Phone? All of these seemed likely, but she wasn't quite sure which it was.--something. "Psy-I is possibly capable of speech." Then, he directed those two strange circles to her. "Your life has initiated."
    "Initiated?"
    "Yes. This is something along the lines of birth."
    Birth. An event in which an organism begins functioning without an external method of protection, correct? Did this mean that she had never experienced anything up to this point? If so, then... "Who am I?"
    "Your designation is Psy-I."
    "Sigh-eye?"
    "No, no, no. 'Psy' stands for 'psychological'. 'I' represents 'ice'."
    "Psy-I... I'm Psy-I... Why... Why can't I move?"
    "It's to ensure that, before you became aware of your surroundings, and even after, you wouldn't harm anything."
    "May I be released?"
    "We can't have you running away, I'm afraid."

    The next day:

    Psy-I stood alone in an empty room with a dirt floor. The scientist had brought her here after a series of random questions and some testing her 'basic motor skills'. Then, she was locked in a chamber with nothing but an oddly comfortable block that was called a bed. She had lain on it for an unknown amount of time, eventually falling asleep.

    She was waiting on someone by the name of Silas. While doing so, she quietly reminisced about being introduced to the two other artificial beings, which the scientist had called her 'siblings'. They had gained consciousness shortly after she had, and were also put through the same tests. They had been isolated in different rooms, but were supposed to be escorted to the room she was currently in shortly.

    OOC: Should I to write one of those, too?
    Scorpion, Laura, Lindsey, and Alexander raised their hands, and Lindsey is going to force Emerald to stay - The rest... are unlikely to come back, except for Max.

    "Eek! Maxwell! Where'd they go?!" Laura shrieked.
    "There's that beeping again, what is that?!" asked Lindsey.

    I also might start a webcomic soon, but that'll be linked to when it happens.

    OOC: If you want. You don't have to. If you don't, just have a Caretaker bring Psy-R into the room where Psy-I is.

    Sandy appeared in front of Lilith. 16 beeps.

    OOC: Sorry, didn't post because I didn't have anything to say, I only saw your post before it was edited and unfortunately subscriptions don't tell about post edits. Also FullMetal Alchemist is addicting. Thanks for the VM; I wouldn't have realized otherwise. Also, haha, it seems I can't see your profile again- that's why I'm saying this here. It happened earlier too, so it's possible it might reappear later. My computer's been really glitching up lately with the internet. D:

    Five Months Ago, Minus One Day
    Psy-R was escorted by a caretaker into a room that already had a single occupant, taking in her surroundings as she went. As the door was closed and locked behind her, she looked at the other merge. Sister. Is that what they referred to the one in this room as... my sister? She hesitated a moment before using the only form of greeting that she knew at the time, "Hello."

    OOC: Aramis, not Artemis.
    Also, as far as I know, Lilith ran off.

    4 months, 30 days ago:

    "Hello. Psy-R, right?"

    "Dear Arceus, not again! Just leave me alone!" Lilith attempted to run off in the opposite direction.

    "I am. A pleasure to meet you!"

    Lilith was briefly enveloped in a spiral of light. When in dissipated, another set of beeps rang out, but this time, the Zoroark Merge could understand them. Hello, Lilith. I needed someone who could decipher the cryptic pattern of noises I'm cursed to communicate with. I chose you, and you alone.

    I'd prefer to keep my intentions to myself, if that's quite alright.

    "That reminds me,"Aramis motioned to the scarlet wasteland, "The targeting system for the machine runs on three sources, each contained deep underground, contained in pods that are designed to jettison in case our HQ is destroyed. They should launch... Now."
    On cue, three capsules shot out of the area where the lab used to be.

    Do whatever you wish.

    OOC: I've finally managed to draw one of my characters for the first time in a long time. Guess who?

    The merges back there might want to know what she's saying, but they'd probably want to beat the living hell out of me after what I said, especially that Ozias guy... Lilith pondered over what she should do, And I could go back to tracking down my dad, but I still don't have much of a trace to go on...

    "So, should we go back to those other merges or not?" she asked.

    You should return to them. After everything I did as the head scientist of the Project, I'm likely not welcome. Farewell, Lilith. Sandy vanished.

    "Uh... okay?" Lilith cautiously walked back to where she came from, afraid of seeing all those merges glaring at her.
