Diagnostics

Post by dreamrock » Wed Dec 23, 2009 12:37 am

It had to be a malfunction. Every time the QR-33 reviewed any data on the man, its processor use suddenly spiked. QR wasn't sure what was being processed, but something big surely.

QR thought there might be a secret lock on the man's file, but several spider processes had been deployed to discern the state of the rogue processes.

The answers were ... pointless. Calculations about his symmetry or the way the light reflected in his eyes.

QR consulted a psycholobot once the other diagnostics had completed.

The diagnosis was absurd. QR simply couldn't be in love with him. Could it?
