It seemed to be a relatively quiet day -- no work, no classes, and no island drama to take up Victor's time.

Obviously, this meant he needed to sleep in. Once he'd finally gotten up, showered and dressed, it was late in the morning. Like the geek he was, he decided a good way to make use of the rest of his day was to organize his stockpile of comic books chronologically by title. They were jumbled together in a milk crate near his bed, which wasn't exactly the best solution.

If taking the comics out of the milk crate to sort them had turned into a marathon Ratman back issue reading session, well ... it wasn't like the project had a deadline.

First, there was a set of blue eyes peeking in through the partly-open door.

A moment later, there was a set of knocks. They were tentative - Liara still wasn't certain whether this was the right course of action. But she was worried, and there had been topics, and she thought humans might consider it fair if--

Well.

Knocking.

"Victor!"

Yes, Liara. Victor had been who you came here to see. "Hello. I... felt we should talk."

"I spoke to Karolina," Liara said, fiddling a bit. Now that she was here, she was wondering if perhaps she had misjudged the appropriate human response. "She... spoke to me about your situation. When you met."

Victor had been socialized by humans, which made it the only remotely reliable yardstick Liara had.

"No," she admitted. "I-- I am sorry. I simply thought it would be proper if you knew that I knew."

She glanced away. "Perhaps we should close the door."

Liara was not exactly a leading expert in the field of sardonicism. She blinked. "Should I not?" she asked, genuinely confused.

Liara crossed her arms. "She said they discovered that a future version of you would become a... supervillain."

If she sounded skeptical, it was because she was still not exactly on board with the concept of 'supervillains', 'supervillainy', or any equivalent thereof. It sounded like something from a bad Justicar serial, frankly.

"I did not think you would," Liara hastened to add. "I merely thought-- well, perhaps I was mistaken-- you may not want to be ignorant when other parties-- find out. It seems like the whole matter would have caused you some distress."

Admittedly, it was still possible his AI would become somehow corrupted. She just chose not to take that as anything approaching a certainty.

"You are welcome."

That was a very certain 'you're welcome'.

"Will Karolina be all right?"

That slipped out before she could stop it from doing so.

"Oh! I am sorry," Liara said quickly. "I-- did not mean to pry into the details. It is just that I have been concerned-- irrationally-- and you seemed to know about, well-- issues, and..."

"Being in California," Liara said, "Fighting criminals."

Those were pretty big Issues.

Liara rubbed at her forehead.

"Did you join them?" she asked.

"I see."

An awkward silence ensued on Liara's end. She was terrified of somehow offending him.

Liara tilted her head. "Ah," she said, with a vague hint of distance. "Human dating practices are-- interesting. In some respects."

There was not terribly much to ask about Victorious, was there? She did not know Victor terribly well, and the whole concept still seemed-- outrageous.

As for this concept - Liara just blinked. "Should there be drama?"

"I would not know," Liara admitted. "I have never dated anyone before."

And she wasn't exactly a social superstar even on Thessia.
