DragonSoulJess popped up with a question next. “If you had a pet dragon, what would you name it and what would it look like?” she asked.
“Hm... It would be black. Like an ebony black that shimmered different shades of indigo and black. And I’d make it a gold leather harness. I think I’d name it Syrah.”
“And how do you think Rod shall burn me WHEN I’M IN MY FIREPROOF DRAGON RIDER SUIT AND HELMET AND GLOVES AND ALL?” she said before letting out a creepily evil laugh.
Prodigy shrugged. “I don’t know. I’m sure if we let him go long enough, we’ll find out.”
“YES YOU WILL,” Rod promised. “But I want to ask some questions first. Can I have a massive war with Raven about Amity Serum during this?”
Prodigy shrugged again. “Sure. Have at it. That should be interesting.”
“ALSO HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN TO TRANSLATE WHAT WE SPEAK INTO CAPITALS ON THE RECORD, I MEAN HOW DO YOU SPEAK IN CAPS?” he yelled.
Prodigy nodded at him. “Like that. You yell.”
“REVALEPHANT IS A POO HEAD.”
“Eh, only when she annoys me. Which is about all the time. So, yes, I agree,” Prodigy said.
“Oh, and also, that is your opinion on the hierarchy of a governing body with three impartial robots who have ultimate power as a group, but need a majority vote to pass action?”
“Sounds an awful lot like the three branches of the U.S. government,” Prodigy mused. “Look how that worked out for us.”
A few people laughed.
“But, in theory, it seems like a halfway decent system. That is, until one of the robots goes haywire and starts killing people or something. Also, it’s hard to reason with a robot, and unless they are all wired differently, they’d all come to the same conclusions. So it’d essentially be a dictatorship with the scientists who control the robots in charge. This also leaves tons of possibilities for tampering with and rigging the system. So, all in all, I’d vote no.
“Not that my vote would matter. The robots would probably kill me anyway. Doesn’t seem like much of a democracy.”
Rod nodded and mulled over this as he set about figuring out how to burn DragonSoulJess.
