You begin wandering the hall in search of Michelle.

It doesn't take you long to find her, as she was just beginning to wander the hall in search of you.

"Hey," she says, visibly panting. "Arvin's... thing is dead." She takes a second to breathe. You're pretty sure it's the first time you've ever seen Michelle out of breath. "Nimrod's dead, too. I kinda made 'em fight. Prophet is--"

She glances just past you, and sees the bodies.

"Oh. Well. ...Nevermind, you got it."

Michelle leans against the wall, and gives a very tired thumbs up.

"You doin' alright?"

Hug Michelle.
Mochi 23rd Sep 2017, 1:21 AM edit delete reply
hug her. hug her as tight as we physically can. we are not doing alright, michelle, not in the slightest. take a minute to cry it out.

then get the fuck out of this horrid, awful place. go back to the motel and hug everyone. maybe not fuse, because burns, but definitely caius. without him, we wouldn't have been able to escape the meat monster, or deal with these assholes as handily as we did. he deserves as big a hug as michelle does.

maybe get fuse to come along later and burn this place to ashes.

also, both nimrod and prophet are under "deceased" where they rightfully belong. i won't be adding shortstack and teal hood, though. they weren't really around enough to merit an entry.

Certainly makes a good place for pyro practice, given we don't care what burns in here XD

EDIT: Honestly I'm for gently hugging everyone, even Fuse. XD; I mean... they mean so much to us. We can do it without saying a word, let them figure out what we're hugging them for XD

Oh geez, look at that black eye.

Give her a quick squeeze-hug (because she's kind of super wounded) and let's just get the hekk out of here. Drive some ways away before pausing to patch her up real fast with our first aid kit, and then continue on back to the motel, checking for any tails.

And check in on Dr. Finch I guess. Argh, so much going on.

Ha! "I understood that reference."

...Pfffahahahaha, oh man. Michelle, you are brilliant! If only I could see Nimrod fighting the bio-mech. That shit sounds like something I'd want to get some popcorn and candy for.

Anyways, yeah. Pretty sure we're okay now, especially since we're sure that, well. /Michelle/ is okay. More importantly, I'm nthing the 'Hug Michelle' thing because that definitely sounds like a thing that needs doing.

she's such a clever sausage, making the big bads fight each other... god i'm so glad she's okay.

It may be time for us to learn the dark rituals of combat armor and weaponry.

If we can make armor from Blood, then we could summon it to ourself whenever we are in conflict. Flexible, yet stable armor, and a blade that bends as needed.

If we could make these, we wouldn't have to hide behind our friends as much anymore.

In fact, if we were the tank, we could heal ourself if we needed to... and save our allies wounds. Albeit we may need a biology book to practice coherent reconstruction on ourself first.

Time to brainstorm some new ways to weaponise the blood the blood to protect our friends.

Some form of netting material we can bleed on/in to entangle would be nice.

Practicing with throwing multiple darts.

...deadly mind controlled snake assassins...

Don't forget to loot the bodies! Now that we know Michelle's okay, let's make sure we've looted the bodies!

After hugging Michelle of course.
Kitty 23rd Sep 2017, 1:50 AM edit delete reply
Ah-- but check all the loot for bugs! Anything a tracking device could theoretically be hiding in, we need to check it thoroughly before we take it home. Not making *that* mistake again.

Painkillers, then hugs. Syringe up some 'prophet' then leave and summarize things to Caius and Fuse.

Gently hug Michelle, then apply some quick first aid. See if any/all of those bullets made a clean wound or if they need to be removed from Michelle.
Then more hugging. Then getting the fuck out with the USB stick. Also check on Fuse and Finch and the ravens and the rat, making sure they are all, indeed, still alive.
Also, the fact that we didn't feel the ravens or the rat dying during Prophet's mind screw implies that they don't know about them yet.

Er, as a side-note, maybe we better check our hands, too. I think punching with that much force without gloves and whatnot might have wrecked our hands a bit. I mean, sure, we've through worse but yanno. Just keeping all things in check. -v-)/

oh, can we nip downstairs reeeeal quick and get our handgun back though? those are kind of in short supply.

Michelle is such a badass. Great job.

I agree with Mochi, lets get our gun and whatever else might be useful, make sure we have what we came for, and GTFO. This hospital is the WORST place and I hope we never come back.

Unless we're coming back to blow it up? XD

This sequence was so so good! God, it has left me with such a drive to protect all our precious partners. When we go or Finch, we can't do it half assed. Thank you for making such an incredible story for us, Morgenstern.

Congrats! I KNOW there are 300 more pages already written and this scene brought everything...
