As the large, angry you continues fighting to pull her knives out of the desk, you silently motion to the nurse-you to sneak by. She breathes in deep... and nods. She begins to nervously maneuver past the much larger foe, sliding against the wall to try and avoid contact.

She safely makes it to the door.

You eye the bandages that comprise the blindfold of angry-you.

You take a deep breath of your own. You wait for her to lean down more to try and get better leverage on the knife handles...

and you reach up, ripping the bandages free of her face.

Her head snaps to the side, her wild glare locking onto you immediately. You get ready to bolt, but as her tall frame straightens up, you realize you're... not real sure how easy running past her is going to be in this confined space.

She stares down at you, a low roar building in her throat.

...But it's not the furious, bloodthirty scream of before.

The enormous Mine just... crumples, abandoning the knives and dropping to her knees, tears streaming down her face as she wails.

She seems to have realized who she almost killed.

Give the big pacified self a big gentle hug. Maybe she can come along if she regains composure, or maybe she can just sit on the bed and let out all her tears.

Next, let's head to the hallway and peek into the open door at the end. Maybe the Nurse might want to come along, or maybe the Nurse might want to stick with the big self to offer comfort.

Well, we know what to do.

Apply consoling shoulder pats to the big gal. Help dry her tears. And lastly, hug. All shall be well.

This. And see if she'd like to come along, or perhaps stick around to help protect Nurse.

Aww, poor big Mine! Hug her and reassure her that you figured she didn't know.

There there, I'm sure that we will understand the strong desire to harm and hatred you feel towards whoever you thought you were after.

Now I feel evil for mention about the bottomless pit of a closet earlier. :(

AFTER hugs, check out the open door on the right in the hallway. We can open the new door once we've got a better idea of our retreat options (not sure how much more of a beating that desk-mouth can take).

Definitely hug time. Poor Big Mine. :C Assure her that it's okay, she didn't know and she's obviously been through some shit that would totally justify being aggressively defensive. We don't blame her. In the end, she didn't hurt us, and that's what matters!

i dont really have anything to add, sorry :v

Hug her. Hug her tightly. Tell her that everything is okay, she didn't know. And with everything that was happening, it isn't strange for us to feel in Danger when we cannot see.

Safety first: kick the knives out of reach.

Talk to "blind rage?" And hug. Calming words, we are all Ok.

Someone have an archive check of being in a blind rage? How about deserving a blind rage?

Rage!Mine couldn't remove the knives. I doubt main!Mine can even budge them.

It's been pointed out rage!Mine looks like she's decked out in scraps of Profit (and tried to kill us with knives). It's likely where this aspect of us stems from. Also likely foreshadowing of what's to come: Manifestations of negative moments we've experienced that we'll have to overcome.

If that foreshadowing is right we might not be able to hug our way out of this.

Hugs may not be our solution but that doesn't mean we can't do them.

I'd also like to propose we invent the hug-five. It's like a high-five but with hugging instead of hand smacking.

I'm wondering if perhaps big angry Mine is the part of ourself that is analogous to the Edison personality fragment of the three ghost girls
lil Joshu 16th Jun 2018, 9:03 PM edit delete reply
lil Joshu
Oh snap... what if the girls being different aspects of an original girls personality means they got to confront each-other the way we are now?

What if that bunker IS in her mind?!?

With Edison not present this means they can never condense.

Portal In Time
Shit.. I mean, it makes sense. They were all kind of "isolated" from eachother, too, right? If they can only condense when they're on the same plane of being, then I think we might need to pump them both through the FolKat system, too. Make them the same state, and all.

I should think so. It's why I said we'd need to convince Edison and Tesla into replicating the incident once we seemed like we could reconcile Kid!Mine and Hugthulhu, and why I suggested making a body for them. But then Mine wound up here.

Plus, there are three cables for the folcat system, one of which was lit up while Faraday was in the system already. It's designed to have all three in it. Two are probably lit up now, if we can have Caius check. Not that we can communicate with him right now. The ghosts need to all climb in and reconcile as aspects of the same person, then merge while in the folcat, and the we pull them out as one complete imprint.

Convincing Edison to go through with it will be... interesting.

Hug time.

Beware, nurse Mine, of hiding near doorways. A certain doctor you know almost died that way.

100% down for HugQuest. Unironically.

Hug our rage?

here's a thought while we are in here I wonder what has happened to her body and yes her astral form because were we not just in the middle of a dangerous experiment when all this started. we need to find a way out of are mind pronto I survival may depend on it.

Seems more and more like if all the manifestations can unite in one spot in this mindscape the trial will end. Time to find a way back to the pink room then, after confirming no other selves down here. Loot knives if Big Mine doesn't recover them.
