I was waiting until I could review everyone's mission reports - and until I wasn't in quite so much pain. I hate to sound snippier than I should.
Bluntly put, I am not pleased. Yes, we got the kid back reasonably intact, which was the important thing, but it was sloppily done - specifically by the retrieval team. If Toad hadn't been alone, we'd have been in serious trouble. And yes, I am going to say this in public, because I'm annoyed and would also like to encourage those who weren't there to read the team reports as a good example of how not to conduct a rescue mission.
Kylun: All right, so I don't actually have a lot to say to you. Just bad luck that you were seen while you were scouting the hallway, and you dealt with it quickly and efficiently enough.
Shiro: To reiterate, I don't care that you beat up on a girl, although from the sounds of it, you should have hit her harder to start with. No, what's still chapping my ass is the fact that I had the damned door under control. If you thought you could have helped me speed things up, fine. But you damned well ask and wait for my okay before you stick your hand anywhere near my line of sight while I'm using my optic blast. Especially for precision work!
Sam: I'm going to staple your mouth shut, Guthrie, I swear. The next time some witty comment is on its way out of your mouth in the field, bite your tongue. Preferably hard.
Cain and Logan: I'm terribly impressed that you managed to wind up rendered blind and deaf, respectively. That takes true talent. That being said, you got the job done, and at least you both have natural advantages that meant you had no chance of winding up crippled for life.
And just in case anyone feels the need to point out that I missed someone:
Scott: I made entirely too much use of my optic blasts in that one green room, actually let the retrieval team split up - safety above speed, Summers - and most egregiously, wasted time trying to figure out how we could get out with Kyle and somehow make sure Toad wound up in the hands of the authorities. So much for that idea.
Suffice to say, we're going to be drilling on this sort of thing. Extensively. Because our students will be stupid rather like the sun will come up in the east every morning, so we can't let longer-than-usual breaks from this sort of thing prevent us from being prepared for the next time.
