Topher had two main things that he was doing today, because doing only one thing at a time was boring and something only stupid people did, in his opinion. First, he was melting down turret bullets, a very precise process that involved wearing gloves and goggles in addition to his usual lab coat -- both very obviously awesome additions to his ensemble. And secondly, and somewhat related to that one, he had discovered Instagram, which was popular with the other Aperture R&D technicians probably on the basis that they could make their pictures look just vague enough to not break any rules by posting them.

So, new Instagram user cbrain was now posting a lot of very ugly-looking, green-filtered pictures of test tubes full of liquid with the name on the side of the tubes blurred out. And somehow, he was acquiring followers with impressive speed.

It was one of those days where Topher was genuinely amazed that he was only a rising senior in high school. That had more to do with his first task than the second one, but internet fame was impressive too.

Also he was controlling the lab playlist for the first time. An intimidating task, to be sure, but he'd eventually just gone with meta for wookie noises. Everyone loved them.

[[I really wanted to do an Aperture post with this icon because I'm legitimately horrible. Open for calls and such! Mod your instagrammy pictures of vagueness.]]

Was his ringtone meta for wookie noises, too? Because his phone was ringing.

"You," Peter said, eyeballing an Instagram picture on his desk's holographic display, "are a menace to company security."

"You really think an image filter is going to stop a determined hacker?" Peter asked, flicking idly to the next picture.

"Then why are you rampantly leaking information someone could use against you or your employer?"

Someone like Peter.

Peter let out a sigh that was... really mostly for theatrical purposes, really.

"So how are you, Topher?"

Besides potentially useful yet moronic.

Peter's voice was very dry as he said, "I've been busy."

He was Peter. He'd leave it to Topher to guess how.

"The nun's dead, actually," Peter said, though he didn't sound like he cared much. "The vegetable's at war. It's been novel."

Peter rolled his eyes. "No, we were done with that when Ender annihilated the buggers," he said. "Plain old land war."

"Oh, not at all," Peter said easily. "It's Bean. He'll take any chance he can get to berate me for whatever I've done wrong this time, the little brat."

"Take it up with the legume," Peter said with an audible shrug. "I'm just trying to do my end of the job."

The vague, vague job.

"I get bored," Peter said vaguely. "You know how it is."

He was writing his way into a new job, he didn't say.

"Oh, come on," Peter retorted. "When you get bored, you... experiment. Blogging is my outlet."
