Tachikomatic fun!!!

"Fun with Space invaders?"

Two Tachikomas are standing around an arcade game that is sitting in one of the hallways.

"What is it?" asked one of them

"I don't know, it looks like a strange TV or something"

"Look, it has something written on the top of it." Said the other one .

"Space Invaders? Why does a TV have space invaders written on it?"

The other Tachikoma plays with the joysticks

"I don't know, and what kind of a remote is this?"

The other Tachikoma takes a look.

"Hmm, it looks like the controllers to one of my games, but this is a lot bigger, I wish I knew what this thing was, it's so frustrating!!"

"I think I'm going to link with it"

"What! We don't know what it is or what it could do to us, are you sure it's a good Idea to just link with it?"

"Relax; it isn't like it's going to kill me or anything"

The Tachikoma links up with the strange object.


"Hold on I'm still analyzing it, most of these codes are ancient, and it's going to take a few,..."

The screen of the foreign object turns on.

"Hey it turned on"

The Tachikoma that was linked up said nothing; it just twitched and made a ton of weird sounds.

"Are you ok?"

"Where the heck am I?" said a voice.

"What? You're standing next to me,"

"I don't see you!"

"What are you talking about your looking right at me?"

"I don't see you!"

"Sure you can't"

"I'm serious, I can't see you! All I see is black… I think I am trapped inside this thing!"

"Hmm, do you want me to unplug you,.."

"No don't! I think that might kill me!"

"OK then,… do you want me to get the Major?"

"No! She will kill me!"

"Well what do you want me to do about it?"

"I don't know, look for a way to get me out"


"I don't know you mindless piece of scrap find a way!"

"Fine, if that's how you're going to talk to me, then maybe I will just leave you trapped in that thing!"

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean it"

"Look me in the eye when you say that!"

"Very funny!"

The Tachikoma looks around and notices the screen of the arcade machine.

"Hey this is a video game! I wonder how you play."

"Now isn't the time for games my life is at stake here!"

"You're the one that just had to link up with the thing"

"I was curious"

"I heard curiosity kills"

"That's great; so are you going to help me or not!"

"OK, OK, I'm trying, I'm trying"

As the Tachikoma desperately tries to free its trapped comrade, Nabeshin is walking down that exact hallway; he notices the arcade game.

"Hey, Space invaders! I haven't seen this game since I was a kid" he pushes the Tachikoma out of the way and puts a quarter in.

The Tachikoma struggles to its feet.

"Hey! Excuse me but,.."

"Not now! I'm concentrating," shouted Nabeshin

The Tachikoma hooked up to the machine waves its arms around wildly as Nabeshin mashes buttons and toggles the joystick

"Hey, what is going on,.. Stop messing around and help me!"

"Its not me that's doing it, some guy just came and started playing with it"

"Well stop him!"

"I can't!"

"Why not!"

"Because he keeps kicking me out of the way!"

"Well then shoot him!"

"Shoot him! I can't shoot him!"

"Why not!"

"Because, first of all I am unarmed! Second I will not shoot a non hostile subject!"

"He's screwing up my systems, I would call him hostile"

"This wouldn't have happened if you didn't have to shove your nose in everything and link up with it!"

"Shut up! I'm trying to beat the level one boss!" shouted Nabeshin

"God, this is tough it's like he knows what my next move is going to be! And why does my space ship look like a blue spider?" thought Nabeshin as he tries to beat the level

"I will not accept defeat! Not this time! Take this Space invader!" shouted Nabeshin

Nabeshin's ship explodes on the game

"You Son of a bitch! That was my last life!" said Nabeshin as he searches for more quarters

"Crap that was my only quarter too, damn! And I was so close to the beating that bastard! Oh well, I guess it wasn't a life an death situation anyway" said Nabeshin as he walked away

The Tachikoma that was linked up with the game drops to the ground.

"Are you OK?" asked the other Tachikoma

It pokes it a couple of times but no response.

"Well,.. I guess I'll see… you… later!"

The Tachikoma runs away.

The End?

A story inspired by a friend of mine, and also the movie TRON!
