[Pre-Milliways: Ironhide arrives on Earth, and Bob finds what he's looking for.]

A Guardian bursts through the front door and stops just inside. He looks pale and hollow-eyed, like he hasn't been sleeping or eating properly lately, and he's looking around in absolute awe.

"I'm back," he says in a disbelieving whisper. Then a joyous shout: "I'm BACK!"

"...Bob?"

The first startment is not a question, just hopeful near-disbelief.

"Bob!!"

The second is more a declaration as Bob's soon sporting the newest fashion look in temporal displacement victims. His fiance hugging him just a little too tight to be really comfortable.

And Bob is hugging her right back. 'Clinging' might be a better term for it.

"Oh my code, Dot--"

"Bob, where did you go?" Dot holds his face in her hands and looks at him. He looks like he hasn't eaten or slept in seconds. "What happened after youd disappeared?"

"Later." He pushes her hands away from his face and clings to her even more tightly. "User, I thought I'd never see you again..."

"Me either...after Tyler told me about you...disappearing.."

The first thing to come to mind had been the worst possible thing to think of.

"I thought I had lost you."

"I'm here," he murmurs into her ear. "I'm not going anywhere, I promise."

And he's not. He could stay here just hugging Dot for the rest of his runtime.

Dot will be more than happy to comply to that, which is why she tugging him over to a couch to sit, so they won't get bumped around by other patrons.

"You look like you haven't eaten in seconds..."

"I haven't--ohmygosh, I can get food now and a shower and sleep in an actual bed--"

There was a tall blond computer geek eyeing him at that, and currently typing some coding on a laptop. Encrypted, and with a privacy screen over the display.

"...Back from what?"

"Iwasstuckinanalienrobot'sheadforthirtyfiveyearsbutthatdoesn'tmatternowbecauseI'mBACK!"

Hope you wanted an enthusiastic hug from a grinning Guardian, because you just got one.

Langly normally doesn't do hugs so there was a strange look from him.

But the alien robot head got his interest, "Wait, were you actually living inside of it? Are you sure it was a robot and not a ship?"

"Positive. It took me ten cycles to make contact with it, but..." He pulls back and finally gets a look at the person he's talking to. "I don't think we've met. Are you new here? That's awesome."

Everything's awesome, right now.

Langly slowly shook his head still staring, but some interest also at the comment about cycles. Like a measure of time, but interesting way to call it.

"Yeah, we just found this place last night. I'm Langly, who are you?"

"Bob, Guardian 452 of System Mainframe. Has anyone given you the rules spiel yet? You're gonna love it here, I promise..."

0.o

0.0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


"...System Mainframe?" He said in a reverent voice.
You'll have to give him a moment, Langly's head just exploded at that.

It's like learning there's angels in the servers.


"Yeah, it's my home system, and now I can actually go there because I'm not stuck in the wrong universe anymore..."

"You know, always been rumors of sentient life springing up within. Saw one example of it." Langly replied in a hushed tone. "And does this mean there's more of you?"

This was so freaking cool!

"BOB!!!"

There is an incoming 10-year old projectile coming at Bob's chest and make sure he's real.

He's also doing what Enzo would do, all things considered.

"Woah!" Bob staggers back under the weight of the boy in his arms. "Tyler! Ohmygoshit'sgoodtoseeyou--"

"Bob! Wherehaveyoubeen? whathappenedafterthestoneangeltookyou? I'mgladyou'realrightcuznowDotwon'tbesoscary-sad-angry anymore..."

Panicking at the speed of your average processor. Gotta love it.

"Woahwoahwoah, Tyler, slow down and take a breath, okay?"

Things have been getting increasingly weird for Tyler as of late.

Give him a nano.

"Kay."

"Okay." Bob takes a deep breath of his own. "As for where I've been... would you believe I was stuck in the brain of a giant robot for thirty-five years?"

"...Would you believe I got kidnapped by a candadian government because they thought I was dimension hopping when I was coming to Milliways?"

Blink.

"Uh... you kind of are, aren't you?"
