Morgenstern
You ask Fuse what he's seeing. You might still be hallucinating.

"Uhh, skin walls? Eyes hanging from the walls? Bone doors? The floor is like... brains... or intestines or something."

Not hallucinating, then.

Fuse lights up one of his levels, taking a few quick but big puffs... and then one long, slow one.

And then lights one of the eyes on fire.

It definitely burns, though it doesn't seem to respond. Oddly, lighting the eye on fire messed with the lighting of the hallway--everything flickered on this end, growing slightly darker for a moment. It seems like the eyes are less for surveillance and more as... light fixtures.

Which doesn't make much sense, anyway, because the eyes aren't putting off light. They're not glowing or anything. They just... are somehow responsible for it.

... Jane, even though they're dead, or at least legally dead, your parents have a lot of explaining to do. Time to go further into this twisted wonderland, though Fuse will need to go take care of those corpses eventually.

.... you know somehow after seeing this place I kinda doubt that Jane's parents take to dying any better than she does.

Go through the next door. If there's anything there, we might need to bail..

Put the fire out. These eyes are not hostile (yet) and I don't think killing the lights would help the current situation.
Peek in the first door there.
