Trouble did a very good job of not leaving breadcrumbs leading to the other Animorphs any more than was already inevitable. Still, the cops - who may or may not have been Controllers - talked to Bella just because Trouble has been known to hang out with her; they talked to Renée a little too. Bella thinks she did a good job of affecting ignorance and dismay. Andi didn't, but Andi defaults kind of expressionless anyway even though her braces have been off for a year and a half.

At school - now in its very last days - everyone knows that Trouble borrowed fifty dollars from Amber Jefferson and made off with it. Amber is very gossipy and can afford to lose fifty bucks; he chose well.

Bella hasn't heard from Trouble - or for that matter Aspret - yet.

"Haven't seen her," he says, opening the closet door slightly so they can hear him better. "She seemed pretty happy when she left, though."

<Oh well. Anyway. Do we know interesting things about Yeerks now?> Bella asks, reaching for a notebook and a pencil.

"Yep," says Trouble. "First interesting thing about Yeerks: they can dump whole memories on you when they feel like it. Aspret gave me a bunch. It was easier than figuring out everything we might possibly want to know and then telling me in words, but it makes it harder to just start summarizing."

<Where the pools are, how they're guarded, stuff about Yeerk tech - what they have, how to sabotage it, how to steal it - anything the Yeerks know about the likelihood or likely effectiveness of Andalite intervention, if there are any other aliens making themselves relevant out there, if there are any other strike points besides the three day cycle, odds on whether we can talk other Yeerks into becoming ducks-or-something without getting sold out, if they know anything Elfangor didn't get a chance to tell us about morphing, anything cultural or psychological useful for picking Controllers out of a crowd or spooking them.>

"Okay..." He chews on his lip. "I mean, that's most of it. They stole a lot of their shit from the Andalites - there's some history there, but Aspret wasn't around for most of it so she's kind of foggy on the details. They've got three different kinds of spaceship here. The one we saw that looked like an axe is Visser Three's Blade ship, that he usually keeps hidden on the ground somewhere, and then there's a Pool ship in orbit and a bunch of Bug fighters - those're the little guys. The Pool ship has a big Yeerk pool on board; the Blade ship has a smaller one. When they can, though, they like making pools on the ground. They name the ones on the ground when they're big enough; the one under Phoenix is called Selt Arash. Aspret was born there - she was one of the first. She got up to a host so quickly because she studied biochemistry while she was in the pool; they have computers they can access in there."

<Do you think we could steal a ship? Do the laser guns have stun settings or do they only come in 'vaporize', and either way could we get ahold of those? How do the pools work - how can we throw a wrench in the works?>

aeskhyne: (⑥ don't know what I want)
From: [personal profile] aeskhyne
"The zap guns are called Dracon beams. At maximum power they vaporize; lower settings burn things, lower than that will stun, and the lowest just hurts like hell. They keep track of 'em, and anybody who loses one is in deep shit, but we could probably get our hands on one if we tried. If you keep asking me three questions at once, I'm gonna keep forgetting the other two by the time I'm done answering one."

pandion: (skepticism)
From: [personal profile] pandion
<I also asked if you thought we could steal a ship. I imagine it would be conspicuous as hell, but if Aspret knew how to fly one and now you do too it'd be a good option to know about.>

He shakes his head, just visible through the partly open closet door. "She was never a pilot. They use Taxxons - good reflexes - and she steered clear of Taxxon hosts 'cause they have such high attrition."

<Okay, that's that out. If we ever catch a helpful Yeerk with a more cosmopolitan history could we get a ship?>

<Don't necessarily, but if we had a plan set up to get one it'd be handy if we ever needed to convince a lot of people at once or someone in authority that there are aliens invading.>

"Hell if I know," says Trouble. "I mean, sure, if we can get somebody who knows how to pilot one, maybe we can steal something. But it's not like Aspret spent a lot of time analyzing their security. Oh - that guy who got shot in front of Robin was an escaped host, by the way. Aspret saw him make a break for it. Happens once in a while, but they almost never get as far as the door."
