Thanks.  Here's a couple more pics.

"Did you find anything out?" Lucy asked.

"A little bit," said Amber, and she explained what she'd heard.

"Hmm. That's interesting and all, but intergalactic politics sound scary as hell," Lucy said.

"Well, yeah, I guess," said Amber.  "...I'm kind of worried that I might get involved, but this is just me bonded to alien technology.  It's not like I'm taking sides."

"Thanks," said Amber.  "I'll probably need it.  But I don't even know if I'll ever get a chance to talk to her... well, I guess it's not impossible or anything."

"She's probably going to be in one of our classes," Lucy said.

"Yeah," said Amber.  "I guess we'll see what happens.  I wonder if she can help me translate the stuff my arm sends me?"

"There has to be a lot of alien languages though," Lucy said. "It's probably unlikely."

"Yeah, most likely," said Amber.  "Well, whatever.  Meeting her would still be cool."

"Y-you shouldn't lose hope though. It's worth a try, right?" Lucy said.

"Oh, absolutely!" said Amber.  "At least I know the Arm isn't going to go all 'Oh no, enemy spotted, firing main gun!' as soon as it sees her."

"No, never," said Amber, "but it's still kind of a mystery, you know?  But I'm glad that the gun never fires without me flipping a bunch of switches-- we did a couple of tests, and it's it's hard to use, but really powerful, and it shoots so far we figure that it has to have been designed for space combat."

"Does that mean you could take on an invading alien army by yourself?" Lucy asked.

Re: Your Room
Amber laughed.  "With just the one arm?  No way!  If I get good with it, maybe I could try and shoot down a ship, but I don't even know how tough the ships are-- I might need to hit them a whole bunch of times, and the rest of the army would be shooting back, and everything."

She thought about it more.

"...with some training, I guess I could help fight an army of invading aliens, though, and I'd be, well, not completely useless.  If you got your powers under control, though, you might be able to do some really nasty stuff to one ship at a time."

Lucy chuckled.

"You've sure given it some thought."

Re: Your Room
"It comes out of hanging out with Hero Geeks.  And being one," grinned Amber.  "So I'm like, 'Okay, big gun, I could hurt a ship, but space fighting is fast, so maybe just one at a time.'  And I meet you, and I ask, and I think of all those online discussions, and I'm like, 'Hey, couldn't Lucy kinda float through the walls of a ship?  Maybe spook into a control room all invisible like?  And then start hitting buttons and switches at random, or spook into the engine room and just let her power go crazy?'  Just the way we think on those groups."

"It just comes out of the discussions," said Amber.  "When people get arguing about what somebody could have done or should have done, you wind up thinking about what you would do, and once in a while, it's actually pretty useful."

"A lot of the time, though, it's easy to say things when you're sitting at home, calm," said Amber.  "I'm pretty sure that unexpected stuff might ruin my perfect plans.  But planning is still good... hey, what do you want to do for lunch?  We can plan that, at least."

"Since it's so nice today, why don't we get some food and eat outside?" Lucy asked.
