Notebooks, Cameras, and other Gifts

Post by taerKitty on Fri 4 Dec 2015 - 17:15

'Etta has a notebook, and writes memories in it.
Elsa has a camera, and ... forgot what she shoots with it.
Claes has pianos and paints, but is kinda offline.
And there's the excellent image album.

Here's the discussion topic:

What would be an artistic gift your handler might give his/her cyborg(s), and how would they use it?

For example, let's take some paper.  Would a happy cyborg draw unicorns and rainbows?  Would a disturbed cyborg draw photorealistic scenes of past carnage they wrought?  Write stories?   Fold origami (Self-insert?  Guilty as charged.)  Or cut out paper dolls and clothes?

Valentina has a pretty strong liking of music, not the least of which is the fact that it's one of the few things that can calm her down while she's working. But, all she seems to do is work, which worries Giancarlo. As a fairly decent guitarist, he gave her a guitar of her own with the idea of giving her a hobby. Let's just say Valentina + guitar = fish + water. She loves it, loves playing it, and loves playing duets with Giancarlo whenever possible. (Granted, she still loves her computer hacking work even more, but this swiftly became a very close second). She's... okay... at playing the guitar, maybe even good at some songs, but it doesn't matter to her, or to Giancarlo so long as she's able to play with him.

Eleonora has a natural talent of singing, this being a hold-over of her pre-cyborg life as Maria de Fiore. That being said, she doesn't particularly like to sing, especially for others. It's more something that she does when she's alone (or thinks she's alone) than performance art. That, she does from time to time join in with Giancarlo and Valentina in their musical gatherings, which is okay with her because it's just the three of them. No audience to stress over. Except for that one instance...

I have nothing for Rachelle, because it would be a cold day in hell when James does such a nice thing for a mere tool.

Well, the last thing Florentino would want is Odile finding an artistic pursuit, she may wind up accidentally sounding intelligent in conversation and, to be honest, if given something she really wouldn't know what to do with it. She'd have a go to show willing, a camera, for example, may wind up with a few happy snaps on it, but probably little else.

While Monty is a great appreciator of art, and she quite enjoys simply "being around" while Jethro gets his art on, she is not particularly creative herself. When it comes to the arts, she definitely falls into the "consumer" category rather than "producer". Giving her a sketchpad or something would be an absolute waste of time as it would never get looked at as she has more important things to do. This is something I'm fairly certain Jethro has figured out.

Of my three fan-cyborgs (fleshed out version of Chiara not withstanding), Raych would probably be the most likely to take up an artistic pursuit and, as of the end of Meanwhile in Italy, Danilo may even be convinced to get her some pencils or similar. If he won't I'm sure Michele would, and Danilo probably wouldn't object (now). That said, I doubt Raych would display much talent, still being mostly focused on power rather than fine motor skills, but she would enjoy herself scribbling away.

Of course, there was always that one conversation about the idea of a handler getting his cyborg started on Warhammer 40k armies...

With Marisa I had her discover pencil sketching on her own (sort of).

In my story, Mari & Elio were assigned to bodyguard duty at a Catholic school, Marisa posing as a student.
At the SWA the girls are taught history, symbolism and technical structure of art, but as for creating their own art the cyborgs are on their own.  While attending the civilian school Marisa had the opportunity to draw, and took a liking to it.  Her scenery and still-lifes are about what you'd expect from an 11-year old...but her portraits are top-tier.

Marisa: Sometimes when I see a photo of a bad guy we're looking for I'll do a really detailed sketch of him.  You totally learn every square centimeter of some Padania jerkwad's face when you spend and hour studying it and drawing it.

Elio: (sounding like a proud Papa) She came up with that technique all by herself and it works so well I've even started doing it.  She taught the old dog a new trick.

Kara (deadpan): "It also helps identify the body after Marisa has beaten the face to a pulp."

Marisa: "I heard that!"

If Doc got one of the twins a camera, they'd probably fight over it; if he got them each one, both girls would probably have an envelope full of incriminating/embarrassing photos of the other. Beyond that, Kristal would be the more serious photographer; most of Vee's pics would be snapshots of friends and ... people who interest her.

Mario Bossi would make a better handler than Marco Toni. Come to think of it, so would Christiano.
.
Elizaveta didn't jump - she was pushed.
.
Sofia was pregnant. It would have been a boy.
