You have the guard panic about the suggestion of a needle, then faint.

Prophet heaves a sigh through his mask.

"Lab meat... frightened by a syringe. Of course."

He gives your guard a couple of light slaps to see if he'll awaken before giving up, turning around, and starting to walk away.

"It's going to be a real..." He inhales. "...Shame, if we end up having to kill him. Seems like a waste."

poor guard. he must be so confused. can we try and sync with him and let him know what's actually going on? like, let him know we're trying our level best to help him not die and not be brainwashed any worse than he already is? i know there's the risk that he could resist and fuck our whole operation, but i feel bad for him. plus, if we come from a point that's like "hey, i want to keep you alive", he might be more amicable. i doubt he wants to die or be a slave.

I also suggest this, but wait until we have him (safe?) in our clutches (so to speak).
For now, go back to Macland and see what's going on there.
Also, let Finch dye his hair, if he wants. He has time; I don't think there's anything pressing we need to have him do.

I agree about telling the guard, but I don't think finch should dye his hair

I think we should reserve syncing for friends. Until the recon, anyone injected with Jane's blood was in order to protect them and Jane together. Syncing came later when we developed a rapport.

I also agree with Macheman7 that the man has already been injected. If his sanctity is violated any more while he's also tied up in a room with PsychoMantis and Bane McBluejeans, think the poor guy might have an aneurysm.

Oh thank goodness. When I realized how current these strips got, I worried I wouldn't make it before the arc ended or something. Geez this has been tense, I think the stress is turning my hair gr- I mean, I think I forgot to dye my hair today! hehehe

This is a very compelling read, and all interactives I've come across ended before I could get to them. (Ruby/Rwby quest, homestuck, etc.) But this one's different, and that may be part of the problem. I feel strangely close to our main character in some ways. Worried I'll pollute the narrative. So for now, I'll weigh in on comments I see, but I won't submit any original ideas yet. Everyone keep up the amazing work, especially the great art!

Er, 'lab meat' is (are?) supposed to be frightened by syringes? What does Michelle have to say about that statement? >.>

Poor guard, seriously, he's just been forced to faint willy-nilly while extremely confused XD;;;

Should we cause some kind of distraction outside to make everyone leave? Like, I dunno, Michelle waving her police badge around and yelling I'VE BEEN HIRED TO DO A RANDOM POLICE RAID BY SO-AND-SO GEDDOUT! Would that even work XD;;;
