June 22nd, 2010

Hello again, everypony. I've got another report for you guys today.

First off, the Mobility Gels are running smoothly. We've already got the Speed Gel down, and all that's left are the Repulsion and Conversion Gels. Should be easy enough to get those done. We also started that production line for the tractor beam. It's not really done yet, but we'll definitely finish it off by the end of the month, meeting Cave's deadline and then some.

I also formally pitched my idea for a "Cleansing Gel" to Cave that negates the effects of the other Gels. I made a pretty strong argument, I think. To me, it doesn't make sense that a test subject should have to deal with Weighted Cubes and Spheres that are covered with the different Gels. But like I said, I put a lot of thought into my pitch. So it'll probably get funded eventually.

What else, what else...oh, yeah, I finally got hooked up with Rainbow Dash. It wasn't as hard as I expected it to be and I was worried about rushing things, but she actually seemed pretty desperate for me. What can I say? Everypony digs the accent!

All seriousness, though, she's pretty cool. She isn't really one for science, but that never seems to matter when we're together. She just really likes being around me, and I, to some degree, like being around her. She also trusts me completely. I think that I could ask her to do anything and she would honestly try to do it. And while that does mean good things for me, it also means that she'll be perfect. Cave was right.

There...has been a slight complication, however. Cave has already made it quite clear to me that I can't grow too attached to her. I understand why - for obvious reasons that would be too redundant to explain here - but I worry that I will not be able to...how shall we say...hold up my end of the agreement.

Now, I'm not saying that I will complicate things in the future - Celestia, no - but it's just something that I think I need to work on, is all. That's it.

Anyways, I did have something else that I wanted to try before this session ends. Now, I presume that Cave will be watching this, so I'll now be speaking directly to him. Cave, you know my position. I am not asking for your permission this time. We are done debating. I am going to run the prototype, and if it doesn't work, then at least we'll both know, once and for all, that your plan is the correct one.

I have already taken the necessary precautions. Anything that goes wrong will be dealt with in a calm and orderly manner. Do not try to stop me. I already have it prepped, charged, and at the ready. All I've got to do is flip-
