Boot time. Bugger, I had just killing a horde of nefarious drones when the countdown to boot started. I hurriedly scrambled for my tractor beam, trying to gather all the 20-30 wrecks around me, in search for the A.I. my agent so desperately wanted. I wasn't fast enough thou. Unfortunately I was disconnected before I could recover the important piece of drone brain from the wreckage. Atleast I would now know what happens to stuff in boot.
Well, apparently, it goes *poof*, just as i expected. Now I had to return to my agent shamefully without the item she wanted. I was dismayed, but hoped she would understand. After all, no-one can avoid the inevitable reboot!
My agent wasn't quite so forgiving. She gave me a lecture about my incompetence and turned her back to me. She didn't want to offer me a job anymore. I was disraught, but eventually I just let it go and located another agent who would be willing to employ me despite my ineptness.
