The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
In the foyer of Dalliances. An A.I. that manifests as an animated feminine face and hands on a screen welcomes and instructs Nicole and Seamus. There are two doorways, one on each side of the A.I. screen.
A.I.: Welcome to Dalliances, the first word in discretion.
A.I.: Please enter separately, through each of the two doorways before you.
Panel 2
Nicole and Seamus exchange discomforted looks.
Seamus: Last chance to change your mind.
Nicole: I guess my curiosity wins the argument. Let's get this over with.
Panel 3
Nicole is in a room standing before a console. The A.I.'s voice speaks.
A.I.: Please deactivate and remove your anysuit, shoes and all jewelry.
Nicole: Erk.
Panel 4
Seamus is in a similar room.
A.I.: Please deactivate your powered chair and remove your clothing and any jewelry.
Seamus: I can do the latter, but I require this chair for mobility in this gravity environment.
Panel 5
Back to Nicole: She is now starkers, her arms folded across her chest, and rolling her eyes.
A.I.: Please hold still while we scan for recording devices.
Nicole: As if I'd want to record this little misadventure.
Panel 6
A panel in the console opens and something that looks like a Dejah Thoris' tiara is presented.
A.I.: We detect an M-6460 Series Cortical Implant.
A.I.: You may either choose to permit us access to your implant to deactivate its recording features, or wear this Farraday Crown, which will inhibit recording and transmission.
Panel 7
As Nicole dons the tiara, a door opens behind her, revealing a closet with several items hanging from a rack.
Nicole: This is all I get to wear?
A.I.: You may choose from among the lingere items on the rack behind you.

Panel 8
Nicole has donned a teddy that looks like it came from Victoria's Secret, but conceals her naughty bits.
Nicole: I guess this will have to do.
A.I.: When you are ready you may enter the encounter room, to your left.
