You state that you do have a base of operations now, but you're not... exactly... sure where it is. Geographically speaking.

You also voice your curiosity about what Mom's red is actually planning.

Its teeth grit. The walls strain. You can feel the entire entity tensing around you.

A small portion of the floor begins to... swell, blood rushing from around it and into it. You watch as the mass enlarges to slightly larger than a basketball... and then the bottom of it begins to darken. Rot. Separate.

The large mouth in the wall breathes a sigh of relief.

"I cannot easily pick myself up and move," states the red, "but if you will take that piece of my body..."

"am here?," asks the tiny red.

"...then I can grow myself toward it," finishes the larger red. "A subtle branch of nerves, curling through the darker corners of the planet. No one will notice me connecting to... myself. Once that miniature growth and my proper remainder are linked up, it will be me and I will be it. It will be as though I am in two places at once... though I will actually just be very long."

"on floor," says the tiny red. "why floor?"

"If your base is far from here, it may take me a while to get there... but I have given this small offspring enough to let me know where it is. Simply place it down where you wish for me to be, and give it time. I will do the rest."

"no see," says the tiny red. "confuse."

"It will, of course, not be very useful until I reconnect with it," concludes the red.

Please thank Mom's Red and... cuddle that basketball-sized baby Red and take it back with us. Since it's confused, reassure it. WHY IS IT SO CUTE

Ok... I suggest we wait until we've figured out as much as we can about our new base before we attach a tiny blob of cosmic horror to it... just because I want us to put it in a good place where our companions don't have to look at our terrifying friend. Fuze needed Level to handle being in the Red, and while we are fine with Red, I don't want to subjugate our posse to the madness.

Also, I second the cuddling and reassuring of the Red Egg tiny cute.

Ooooh, so huggable. Red should learn to do that too.

Can we do this multiple times and what would happen if we put this inside of our red?

This is all I hoped it would be, and more.
So cute!
