family dynamics || data & gus

Post by thegirlnamedcrow on Sat Jan 31, 2015 5:28 pm


     “I am experiencing greater  difficulty than I  had
     initially  expected in convincing your sisters  to
     cooperate.  At this rate, the laboratory will  not 
     be  fully   prepared  for  your parents’  arrival.
     Perhaps you can assist me in this matter.”

Gus was never startled by the sudden appearance of Data.
He was not the sort that started easily…or at all really.


Well. The only time I have seen them working together in the past
they were doing different parts of the same project at opposite ends 
of the house. I suggest you keep them occupied and apart.”

Data hesitated for a moment,    unsure exactly of how to
proceed.                                                


But... I have been instructed to work together with the
Miss Bones-Prewetts.  If I am unable to convince them to
work together, I will have failed in my charge.  Please,
are you sure there is no other way?”

Gus smiled at Data's insistence.



"In my experience they tend to go out of their 
way to disagree. Perhaps if the projects you gave
them were time sensitive. Phoebe is highly
competitive. If she is challenged she performs
better. They might get along better if her
energy is more on the task and less on setting
Hermia on fire."

That seems to be most counter-productive.  One would think that
they would have learned to cooperate more effectively – did your
parents not emphasize the importance of teamwork?      One would
think that, as the children of scientists,  one would be able to
motivate  them to cooperate without having to resort to  playing
them off of each other.”                                        



This is the second time I have heard reference to your sister's
pyromaniacal tendencies.  I have begun to question the wisdom of
allowing her aboard the Enterprise.”

"Its not the fault of our parents, really. Its just Phoebe and Hermia
being Phoebe and Hermia." Gus did not seem to see any of this as
a potential problem for the Enterprise. "As for Phoebe and fire, I
assure you she will behave herself around everyone else. Its just...
Phoebe and Hermia. Again, its just how they interact."





"I am sorry if they are troubling you, Commander. I could talk to
them if you'd like. I don't know if it will do much good but I am
willing to try."

If it is true that your sisters' relationship is as contentious 
as you have described,    I do not believe that speaking to them
about  cooperating  would prove  to be  particularly  effective.
It could potentially drive them further apart,    if they are so
intent upon disagreeing.”                                       



Perhaps you could help in a different way.   You mentioned that
your sister Phoebe is of a competitive nature    –    how do you
suggest using that to our advantage?”

"If you tell Phoebe she cannot possibly do something it becomes her new goal in life to do just that and prove you wrong."

"I suggest trying that tactic on her, only include Hermia in on the conditions by which she 'cannot possibly' accomplish a task."

Fascinating. Your sister's competitive nature represents
an aspect of human nature  that  I find most difficult to
understand.  Is it ego that drives her behavior,  or some
other factor?”                                           


While I conceivably could  fabricate  a story for Phoebe
about Hermia out-performing her, I am concerned that such
an act would serve only to  deepen the rift between them.
Would you be willing to speak to Phoebe?   I believe that
you would be far more impactful than I.”
