Morgenstern
Michelle hauls you into the living room so you can lie down on the couch.

"So what's the next step, boss?"

Fuse chuckles dryly. "Boss? What, you got her blood, too?"

Michelle shakes her head. "Nah, it's all me. Though, I guess that might not be a bad idea, if havin' Blondie's blood keeps you from gettin' mind controlled by OTHER people."

"Oh, yeah?" Fuse paces the floor a bit. "You trust her, then? Without knowing what she is?"

Michelle tenses a little. "Yeah. Yeah, I do. We been through a lot in the last month or so. I trust her."

Fuse sighs. It seems like the prospect of having someone's fingers in his brain is bothering him. He changes the subject.

"We need to figure out how to get into that computer downstairs... and figure out if there's a hidden entrance to that room. I'm getting reeeaaal curious who was in cahoots with Howler."

"Might be a lot of people, from the sound of it." Michelle stares at the ceiling as she takes another puff of her cigarette. "If Save the Queen is really... some kinda control drug, half the lower tiers could be in on this."

Fuse nods. "Yeah... but half the lower tiers couldn't afford that computer. Somebody bank rolled this hack."

Hey, remember that USB thing we got in the first part? Could Fuse help to open it up safely on a computer without risk of getting hacked, with his computery skillz?

Ah, right. The usb. Yeah Howler's computer's probably safe enough to use it on to find out what the fuck's on it.

Half the lower Tier... If you've got enough people under your control, stealing, scrounging, contributing, it's not impossible... Which is terrifying. And if someone bankrolled this... Ok, again, Who the fuck wanted Jane, Michelle? This is worrying.

Once again, the who and why plague our minds. The thumb drive thing could provide help, so maybe plug it into a computer?

Disconnect the computer from the internet or whatever first!

Ah right. Yeah best to do that. just to be safe. Oh and to make sure that the pillar program can't access anything either.

Is it possible the pillar program and make the computer it is on remove work from another?
