Some would question why a pixie of technology would happily visit the forest. Why wouldn't a pixie of technology happily visit the forest? Technology and nature intermingled plenty, and being a robot did not mean that the beauty of animals and plants could not be appreciated. For example, Nebula, in her tiny glory, happily danced around the flowers that towered over her. It was when she noticed one covered in blue webs that she paused her dance to take a closer look.

Blue webs? What kind of spider made those? she asked herself.

Nebula was cautious enough to grow until she was six-foot-one, and she was just as curious to touch the webs. If it had any poisonous property, she wasn't worried about getting hurt. Getting ensnared wasn't too big of a worry when she was so large as well. All she needed to do was call one of her friends for help. It wouldn't take too long, seeing as she wasn't deep in the forest.

Neon doesn't remember how it began, or why, but suddenly he started seeing a string come from the phone he placed on the table near his bed, and... Things got weird for a while, but his amusement was far greater than the shock, and he went on "studying" things around, but surely enough he'd find himself at the forest...

And here we are.

Carelessly he had "plugged" to a seemingly random flower, and decided to sit up on the branch of a nearby tree, studying the genetic data in the plant. The genetic memories contained were simple, but yet amazing! Neon got so absorbed his senses failed to perceive someone approaching, but once he did, that is when he hung upside-down not too far from Nebula, holding onto the branch with his legs, the glowing silk flopped lower, following the movement of the strange glowing screen and keyboard projected before Neon.

"Hey, Nebula, When did you drop by?", he asked, flicking his eyes between Nebula and the screen of his special silk. Even through the backside of the screen, the data could be seen, the times the flower has absorbed water in relation to sunlight time, pollination, among things.

Nebula was startled by the sudden appearance of a familiar figure and fell back onto her behind.

"Neon! I was playing with the flowers. I'd ask you the same question, but you obviously dropped by just now. What are you doing?"

Like a cat, he dropped from the branch and onto his feet, shortly after twisting the virtual screen so Nebula could see all the data in it. "I'm learning more about fauna and flora, see?", there was some glee on his words that exceeded his expressed delight, "With this I can even see what animals have seen or done, although getting them to stay still is tough, and they aren't much eager in opening their mind. At all."

Tugging on the glowing blue cord, it disconnected from the flower and went to Neon's hand, where he instead plugged on the tree and soon the same screen lit up with new data. "I called this Digital Silk. Dunno how this development happened, but ever since I got it-", his stomach growled and he made an embarrassed expression, holding it, "Heheh, I must have skipped a meal by mistake."

Nebula stood up clumsily and walked over to see Neon's screen. Her eyes almost immediately widened. "Whaaat? That's so cool! Maybe it's harder to get to animals 'cause you're hungry. Ooor you need to build trust with animals. Is it only animals and plants?"

As she spoke, she looked around the forest for other stuff Neon could "lookup." It was unfair that he got such a cool power, but she had something similar enough. Overall, her own stuff was pretty cool. Though it would be nice to have upgrades...

"I don't think it's because I'm hungry, but trust seems to be a possibility. For one, tried to look into a cat's past earlier, but while she kept avoiding me there was nothing I could see, but after she calmed down and let me pet her I could see a little earlier before I met her.", Neon pondered for a moment, but his eyes kept scanning the tree's data as it flowed in.

Perhaps to better answer her question and not his own, he brought out his phone, a light glow on the index finger that tapped the back extended itself to the wrist, and soon another screen appeared. This one had what was expected and beyond that: the data that the phone could show normally, but also data that was kept hidden, like firmware files.

Nebula smiled confidently at her being (mostly) right.

"So you have data on... everything? " She had to push down her jealousy. Despite her attempts, her screen's expression flickered to have her frowning and her eyebrows tensing. "You didn't even have to train or upgrade for it?"

"Everything would be a stretch. I tried changing some firmware settings on my phone for testing purposes, but I need to find a way to break through the permissions. So it is possible that things can be hidden anyways.", Neon clearly wasn't so powerful in that aspect.

For a moment he thought... And thought... And couldn't find a proper answer, except maybe... "It was really out the blue, you see... I was trying to sleep and was thinking about some scripts, then as I fell asleep every line of code turned into seemingly gibberish and then numbers, and then before I knew it I was waking up. The moment I saw it connecting to my phone and the interface appearing for me, I decided to test it on other things."

So it was all luck... Nebula smiled bitterly. She wanted to be supportive of her friend, but this was hard. Back home, she could have said whatever she wanted, have a fight, then move on. People here didn't take offense so easily, but they held onto it for a long time.

"It's good that it's not everything. I bet you'd have to get your power restrained if you could do whatever you wanted with it but didn't know how to use it. It'd make you a danger. Are you going to power classes to figure this out?"

"Of course! There's still plenty I don't know myself, or how this even got in me to begin. And just when I thought I had almost all figured out, something new happens...", it was a little frustrating, since he was almost done with power classes and now he had to go back to them, "At the very least this means someone or something is giving me a hand in achieving my dream, right?"
