It is gettin' kinda ugly, kinda fast, but this is what Freddy lives for. Whenever he got into this kinda stuff with the Whistler, Freddy actually appreciated that somebody had the fortitude to stand up to him.

Ok, well, Chris is defending his honor here. She will probably be good enough (I don't know how awesome she is) to get through most of the FryppSec stuff, but Chris'll be lurking around the system himself, and if she runs into him, she's gonna get -trounced-.
Include Basilisk in the defending team. He's a pretty good decker, and has a bunch of European programs that Flute would certainly have never seen before. GP, I can send you a detailed description of Bas and his programs if you want it. Bas is also getting fed up with Flute's posing, and wouldn't mind showing her that ability without experience can get you in a lot of trouble.
Just to make things a little more interesting, Mercury will be around, lurking but not taking an active part in anything. He'll disappear if attacked and seems only to be watching, waiting, and analyzing. His icon is similar to the T2 bad terminator, but instead of taking on other forms, he is silver, reflective, and has no facial or bodily features beyond the basic human shape.
Buzz knows Nex VERY WELL...If Flute gets hurt in any way and Nex finds out...the person(s) responsible will most likely die. Buzz will probably step in and dump Flute, especially if she is in trouble. Tom CraigMessage no. 11

You're gonna kill Chris for giving Flute a bloody nose through biofeedback?
My ass! If some annoying prick kid comes along and starts insulting Chris's *honor* (which is what he thinks is on the line here), he's going to play fair, but at the same time, play to win. Thoroughly.

*urp* Harlequin is going to help make the steal? Harlie is worried something might happen to her, as he recognises a large array of deckers steeped in talent. He's worried that some thing/one will go to far, go wrong, etc. He figures also that Freddie has enough talent arrayed against her that he could give her some ideas/pointers both before and during the run. He could be asked to do the steal, but as he told Mr. Frypp, there's going to be deckers crawling every where after the announcement of this challenge. He feels that this would be bending his word (its allowed to bend, not break...Flute has to ask for him to do this, other wise he will preform exactly as a second in a duel would, unless things get too far out of hand).
I don't feel there anything to compromise on. Flute shot her mouth off that FryppSec's system was weenie. Why does she need three or four others?
