The three of you head back to Dr. Finch's to have dinner, discuss the next stage of the infiltration, and put on your sneaking clothes.

You leave the rat in the ventilation system, giving it the orders to stay in the vents, and take a nap. You have it remove the USB stick from itself and leave it deep, deep in the vents, just in case it gets caught.

By the time you get back to Dr. Finch's, the club has opened. You have only a few hours until midnight.

Sneaking clothes XD <3

Okay, I'm going to put in a vote for now for sneaking into the vents and heading into the security office for 1. Fuse to see if direct access to the network allows for useful info gathering 2. raid the locked closet for its potentially useful items and 3. sneakily sneak around to find the VIP room, all with the aid of Dr. Finch checking the cameras, rats in the vents and Michelle keeping watch and aiding with a speedy getaway.

Gosh, this is making me all tingly :'D

That door in the security office might go down to the basement, so I think heading to the security office is a pretty good idea, yeah.

We're gonna need to bring a bunch of blood vials; we should probably draw as much blood as we can stand to without knocking ourselves out. We may well end up needing to take over a guard or two in the security room, and we'll need one syringe to squirt into the lock so we can open it, if we don't have any other kinds of lockpicking abilities. Then we'll need a vial for Mac, possibly one for his bodyguard as well, and maybe one or more for whatever "company" he has in his VIP room.

...After tonight, we're gonna need to come to grips with the moral implications of using our blood on unwilling victims... and also having our consciousness within the minds of truly awful people who have done awful things, and presumably have the memories of those awful things and the personality traits that drive them still kicking around in their brains where we can see them in all their ugliness. Buuuut that's for AFTER we deal with the matter at hand! ...Better to ask forgiveness than permission, right...?

Also I need to bed now, I was awake for various reasons but was working on this - basically, a silly thing I came up with while imagining Fuse doing his hacking thing on his phone to jack the surveillance XD


Since their iris colours haven't been made official yet I'm going with an all-black for the eyes until I know better -v-)/

You can tell Fuse is enjoying the attention from two females, even if he's trying to do something.

Holywood hacking always makes me laugh a bit.
Real hacking is mostly... You make a program days in advance, get to the target, and press a button.
If that fails, you press a button for a different program, or intersection if you have it.

Mostly just sitting, staring at a screen, looking for anything that might indicate a negative response, and then browsing the files like a normal user if the hack goes through.
Of course then you click another button afterwards to clean up your access history, but eh.

It's like going mining, you have to know what ore your looking for in advance and bring the appropriate supplies, and if you forget your pickaxe/drill/dynamyte, you can't just craft one on the fly and still make the deadline.

I forget, do we have any smoke grenades? We could send rat #2 with one strapped to it with bandages into the vents. If necessary, we can have the two rats set off the grenade as a distraction.

Since it seems our control range is effectively limitless, we can unstrap the grenade from the rat and have them make their way back to Dr. Finch's place. The only evidence they'll find is the spent smoke canister.

Other than that, I dunno what we should do next.

Don't think we have smoke bombs... but maybe we could make rocket candy. Sugar and potassium nitrate. Burns well, and makes LOTS of smoke. A 40/60 mix of sugar and potassium nitrate should do... Put it in a pan, and heat it while stirring until it's caramel like in color and consistancy. Carefully form it and let it cool, and you'll have it nicely solid in whatever shape you want. Light it, and get back, it's hot. And VERY smokey.
