Note - This one is set during the previously mentioned thread.

Day 18 post Typhon. Day 0 of operation Reflection. 15:05.

Final day on Trilobite. Prometheus called on me for a special operation with the other Elaima. Can't quite put my finger on her. Not gifted, but still feels... abnormal somehow. Thinks she knows me and slightly arrogant, but otherwise agreeable - More interesting than most agents. Will put in a request for her old C.O's opinion before I leave.

Prometheus trusts me to convert her, and I trust his judgement in the matter. Predicting three months - will update this entry depending on success or failure. Primary operation should proceed without issue - I've been trained well, and if Reflection is anywhere near as competent as they were claimed to be, Laura should be more than capable. Worst case I can provide on site advice.

Plus, I get to handle funding and sleeping. No more sharing a bunk ever again.

End log.

P.S: I should stop going by day counts. We're not jumping again.
Next entry will use local date and time.

Hopefully this slate can be synced up with local software. Need fresh books.

The following three are set during her first year in L'Isola.

Day 90 of operation Reflection.

Failure. Not total failure, but three months have been and gone. And if it wasn’t for Prometheus’s orders I’d have strangled her after two. Took me a month to get her to call me by my real name rather than ‘sacrificial lamb’ and there’s still no respect for my authority.

She’ll draw during briefings, ignore orders at random, and generally just do whatever she thinks is best rather than even consider listening to me. And yet we’ve succeeded every mission so far. I don’t get it! I just.. Don’t get it.

At least the last place we stopped for repairs at had good snacks. I’ve missed having real sweets. They were a privilege early on, but after society fell apart I stopped being able to get any. Would’ve stabbed someone for a pack of gummy bears back then - it’s nice to just be able to buy them.

End log.

Reminder to self - get the logs from my old handler concerning my resocialization. Some might be useful.


March 7th. Date is more important than time since mission commencement for once.

Apparently it’s my birthday today in the old calendar. I didn’t actually know that - but guess who did. There was a goddamn poster of my Aion dangling from the wall in front of me, looking like it was supposed to be in some sort of pornographic magazine.

I just.. Don’t have the words. Why?

I’m not sure whether to be more worried about where she got the materials, or how she managed to paint and set this up without me getting any sniff of it. She claimed it was a present, which is the only reason I haven’t burned it. Don’t know how attached she is to her artwork.

Closing note - at this point, I just wish she’d put the same amount of energy into our work as she does into messing with me. I dread what she’ll try to top this with next year.

End log.

Reminder to self - keep better track of food supplies and storage. Found a bag of gummy bears under my pillow. Must have forgotten about them. Nice surprise, but also a wake-up call.


Day 365 of operation Reflection. One year Anniversary.

It’s not been a very pleasant year. But the bad times are slowly coming to end. While she still definitely doesn’t respect me.. We’ve at least reached an agreement of sorts. She’ll be providing more input on future targets, and is apparently going to tone down her constant harassment.

Unofficially classifying secondary objective as a failure. She doesn’t respect me and I doubt she ever will. While I’m sure she’ll cooperate come the end of the world… it’s unlikely she’ll ever accept Prometheus’s ideals. But honestly, does she need to? I’m unsure if every Shadow-mirror operative thinks the way I do, and I’d really prefer not to ask.

As long as her cooperation is ensured, we will be successful. And regardless… I can probably learn a thing or two from her. Next anniversary should be a much brighter entry.

End log.
