You draw your blood into the syringe. You focus on the bed sheet in your bedroom, still soaked in your blood. Without physically touching it--and without it having senses of its own--feeling through it is difficult, at least more difficult than a person or your bandages were.

But you do it.

You maneuver the sheet down the hall and into your parents' room. Fuse is silent, staring at you as you stare off into space. He has no idea what's about to happen.

You climb back into the vent, still a little sore from your initial landing. About halfway up the vent, you give the sheet its command. Restrain Michelle. By the time you pop your head into view, the sheet has wrapped itself around her arms and is trying to tie itself off. You ready the needle--

Michelle gets an arm free

and draws her gun

she aims it at you, the sheet not quite strong enough to stop her, just slow her down

you instinctively throw the needle and let go of the vent

as she pulls the trigger

the shot rings out

you're so focused on commanding the needle, full of your blood, that you can't even try to brace this time as you fall

you slam into the bottom of the vent, crashing almost right onto your neck on the basement level.

"BLONDIE!" Fuse rushes to your side, his hands hovering. He doesn't even know where to start. You feel a little stunned, and have trouble moving, but you're sure it's just a pinched nerve--a burner. You breathe sharply. You can try to get up in a minute. You focus on Michelle. On the needle. You're not sure what

You can now give commands to yourself, Dr. Finch, Fuse, or Michelle.

You hear another gunshot echo down the vent.

Gwaaaaaaah :'D

Can we feel Michelle out? Is she okay? What was that second gunshot about?

Also uh, I think we'd better tell Fuse what just happened ;;;;

Who wants to bet that second shot was Michelle airing out some trashbags? But yeah, sneak a peak.

Oh right, from now on we're going to inject Jane's blood into all the new helpful people we add to the party as a precaution against this happening again. Let's face it, Queen's too much of a hazard to have people in the party who aren't immune to it. Not to mention at this point we're sorta fucked in the event Jane's suborned by something or another in any case.

I guess as soon as we can, we get that syringe, disinfect the needle and draw some blood to carry around for the event we need to jam it into anyone again. At this rate we'll end up with a mini-army of Jane-blood peeps XD

We'll be needing something like the TF2 medic's syringe gun at some point if we don't nip this in the bud fast enough. With the syringes loaded with Jane's blood of course.
