He was not hiding. The Brood were proud and fierce warriors and Brood!Hardison was no exception. He was simply biding his time, waiting for the transformation to complete unimpeded. The host weakened him, made him doubt and hesitate, sometimes even dared to drown out the Hivemind with his puling and wailing. It was...inconvenient. And really, really annoying. Like, really. If he found his thoughts accidentally drifting to the human he'd fought yesterday one more time he would do something drastic.

Still, he could feel presence of another Brood through the Hivemind approaching. Better yet, it belonged to the host 'Parker' who might just shut his host up. Silence would be a blessed, blessed relief by this point. And this was coming from a creature who was part of a damn Hivemind.


[For one, please!]

Seriously! Parker's Brood-brain would completely agree with Hardison's. She'd kept it very, very busy since Saturday morning. Maybe they could confab about that.

"I can tell you're ouuuuut there," Parker sing-songed away, wandering into the wood. Nothing to be afraid of. Anything out there should be afraid of her. "Olly olly oxen freee! Olly olly onsen freee! Olly olly olive ooooil..."

Pressing and twining and braiding and sometimes twirling, yup. "So! Come out and help distract her!" The Brood surged to the front for a minute when she yelled, "I haven't gotten to kill anyone yet! I've been keeping her from jumping off buildings! And taking over the Brood! And boosting all the chocolate on the Island, whatever that is!"

"Nice look." ParkerBrood agreed with itself totally on that. The scales! The shirtlessness! So pretty. And distracting! "This one found that mate later. He's at the Clinic." She pouted, rubbing at the scales along her arms. "This one wouldn't let up until we took him there. Rude." She smiled at the OtherBrood, feeling more cheerful. "You're wearing this one's mate too."

"He's very sturdy," Parker agreed, stroking the scales along his shoulders. "This host gave him her Taser, and then decided to come back out to find you. The Clinic people had no idea how to stop her. Me. Us." She sneered and added, "They have no idea how to excise the Brood. We are safe. And victorious. And in space!"

That still croggled the Parker part of her a bit.

"And other universes," Parker said dreamily. "Invading this tiny island was a master stroke, it seems." She slid closer to him, and nuzzled his jawline. "This one's mate texted that there is now a machine to strengthen us, too. Our siblings have been very busy."

They should! How much fun would it be, to watch him tear through the galaxy, ripping off heads with his tentacles?

"I believe so. There must be, if we are in space." Yes, that was the logic Parker was going with there. "Ooohhh, do you think maybe the machine could turn us into Queens? I would love that! We could infect populations together!" And raise them like all little Brood should be raised... "And then we can take out the Queen that spawned us."

Or maybe not let Hardison be a Queen, so as to avoid conflict? Decisions, decisions.

(Wait, why was that a decision? They loved conflict!

...but then again, they also really loved these snuggles and kisses.)

"That feels nice. These bodies are so tactile."

"Much more efficient," Parker had to agree, sighing. Nibbling on his ear had no purpose whatsoever; it had no nutrients this body could process. And yet, that was what she was doing. "Also, terrifying. This body is flexible, but innately flawed."

Then again, it had lips, which made kissing down his neck a lot easier.

"We should get the mate hosted soon. Or he will attempt to stop us again." And perhaps injure himself. Or injure them. Ridiculous concept, no, no, it would just be for the good of the Brood. "...after we're stronger." No reason to make the guy the strongest one of them, or take him on before they were at their peak!

"Precisely," Parker hissed, with a tongue that was starting to fork a bit. "But first..."

Might as well indulge in all this tactility while they had it. Right? Right! And check for more scales, everywhere else.
