You start to apologize to Fuse, but he cuts you off.

"No," he says, "I ... I said I'd do it. I knew it could go sideways, that's on me."

He just lays there for a little while, catching his breath.

You explain everything that happened, what went wrong, why he turned into a roach man, and... everything else you can think to explain.

Fuse stares at the ceiling for a moment before he finally responds to it all.

"I hope he died. I hope Macland's dead."

You send a message to Michelle and Caius to pick up something to treat burns with, in addition to other first aid supplies.

Good idea let's check. Also we should check on Finch.

can we help him up? there are probably towels in here somewhere, right? we don't really have any dry, unburnt clothes for him to change into but we can at least help him not be soaked.

also, i guess, check and see if macland is still breathing. we didn't feel him die, so... chances are maybe?

Sweet, we're alive. Check in with Red, Finch, MacCack, then when we're done being panicked we can try to see if we can heal Fuse's wounds. Surface burns are unlikely to cause undue harm from... extras. Also tell Caius to pick up a Tamagotchi in secret if he can.

Er... While the sentiment is in the right frame, I think maybe getting Michelle a new virtual pet could just bring up bad memories. After all, the reason she got one in the first place was because as a tubecop, she could never have a pet of her own, and she can now. If she wants to get a new one, that's for her to decide.
Besides, it would make Michelle's raven jealous.

We should also check our animals and such, just to be sure. Just a brief glimpse through each of them to make sure nothing terrible is happening near/to any of them.

Geez Louise.

I'm so, so glad we're out of there now. So glad Fuse is alive and with us, albeit burnt and traumatised.

Thank Fuse if he won't take an apology. It wouldn't have worked without him.

And like everyone is saying, check on everything and cycle through our blood links; Dr. Finch, Macland, our animal friends. If our message went through to Caius and Michelle, I'm guessing they're okay at least. Should they also bring a change of clothes for Fuse? ;;;

Man, that was rough. Jane finally cried a little, that broke my heart. ;_;

I think we should order pizza or something. Preferably delivery so that we don't have to leave the building.
Fuse is gonna need some munchies to heal up with.
Assuming that the cult people mostly have a physical connection I doubt they have tabs on our wallets as well, I mean.
I'd ask Finch to look into this, but... he... uhm...

How is Finch doing?
What food shall we get?
and ... erh.... did Macland die? or is he alive? (I mean if the mad scientist almost killed him, we might be able to... somehow recruit him.)

So, we need to check on everyone including our blooded animals.
Special attention to Finch and MacLand.
Dry fuse off and have Caius see if he can get us some spare clothes.
Let's offer to heal Fuse. If he agrees we take it slow. Might ask Red to help, but only after we take some level. I specify offer because he saw what happened when we tried to heal our self last time, and he has been burned before, he might not be interested.

I admit it's kind of cute imagining Fuse in one of Caius's over-sized shirts XD

As a side-note, though, Fuse actually straight-up said he doesn't want Jane to attempt her regen on him, so maybe not? ^^; I think after the body horror he went through in Mac's mindscape, right now he'd especially not want to risk anything IRL. -v-;;

Actually I think we should see how Red is doing, she was getting pretty bashed in Macland's mind there.

Did we actually get anything we wanted from him? Anyways Macland should be checked on. I kind of want him dead but we might have to do that again if we didn't get what we want and he's still alive. We'd be better prepared next time.

I believe we at least got a lead on a reporter... if nothing else... Rufi or Mochi might have pieced together something I missed.
