No but if we go the novelization way, you wanna know why this whole thing is 1000% sadder and more terrifying and why it makes Stacker 1000% more of a badass than you may have previously thought?
This is an awful topic to be inquisitive about, but as an epilepsy patient, I have five million questions about what happens when you have a fucking grand mal INSIDE A GIANT ROBOT ENGAGED IN COMBAT WHILE BRAIN-CONNECTED TO ANOTHER PERSON.
1. This was Tamsin’s first seizure. They wouldn’t have let her pilot again if they knew it was likely this would happen. Trust me, I got told I shouldn’t ride a bicycle. Giant robots were out of the question. So, first seizure, a thing that happens with little to no warning, a thing you did not expect would happen.
2. As awful and potentially dangerous as it is in itself, for the person having a grand mal? Lights out. You literally have no idea what’s happening. BUT NOW IMAGINE STACKER. Imagine him feeling two things at the other end of their connection - that Tamsin lost consciousness and almost immediately that her brain, for want of a better term, short-circuited. While connected to his.
4. I have no idea about the technicalities of how neural handshakes work, but I’m pretty sure Stacker did not go physically unaffected by this. I don’t know if a seizure would, uh, propagate? In which case I’d go as far as to suggest he may have experienced an absence seizure himself (some degree of consciousness impairment + mild tonic/clonic components, lasts about 10-20 seconds, would still be fucking terrifying in context)
5. IMAGINE ALL OF THAT AND THEN THINK ABOUT HIM TRANSFERRING THE WHOLE NEURO-LOAD TO HIMSELF AND FIGHTING FOR THREE HOURS.
6. Being trapped in a harness inside a thing that bumps you around on the regular anyway is not a good place to have a seizure. Like, the fact that she was in armor and wearing a helmet probably protected her from head injuries, but I can’t imagine how being inside a thing that’s mostly rigid can be good. This is some shit you want to deal with lying down.
7. POOR TAMSIN LIKELY WOKE UP AT SOME POINT NOT SO LONG AFTER TERMINATION, WHICH MEANS SHE WOKE UP SEVERAL MINUTES AFTER STACKER TOOK OVER. SHE WOKE UP DISORIENTED AND SCARED AND HURTING AND VERY SLOWLY STARTED REALIZING WHAT WAS HAPPENING RIGHT BESIDE HER, RIGHT OUTSIDE, AND HOW SHE COULD DO NOTHING TO HELP
8. STACKER BURNED FOR THREE HOURS BUT TAMSIN WAS IN THERE WITH HIM
9. STACKER IS A MOTHERFUCKING BADASS. TAMSIN IS A MOTHERFUCKING BADASS. GOD I CAN’T EVEN DEAL.
Then am I not your mother?
