You tell Fuse that if he ever needs anything--or if anything's bothering him--he can talk to you.

Fuse nods.

You also ask Baby Red if this is an appropriate spot for him, or if he'd maybe prefer one of the other bunkers.

"Is good," it says. "Not picky."

Fuse watches the glowstick tumble by the platform again. "We should probably get like... a net, or something."

hahaha i love that we went from real emotional stuff to “there goes the fucking glowstick again”

it’s not that far from the edge, it would probably not be that hard to reach out and catch it. it’s probably going pretty fast though... we could retrieve jane’s ball cap and use that.

also do a quick check on everyone and make sure that we’re good on all fronts. splitting the party like this makes me so fucking nervous, especially when someone is alone. we need another party member so we can always do teams of two.

I just have (morbidly) hilarious images of someone trying to grab the glowstick and just falling right along with it, and then a weird situation where everyone takes turns trying to grab said falling person and eventually everyone is falling together XD

Just a random thought prompted by rereading through the archives for funsies: can we give Fuse the memory of Prophet's death? As, like, a gift? Since we can sync and stuff. It'd only need to be a brief sync for that one memory and it might make him feel better.

Not now, though, probably. Some time when he's in a more emotionally level state, so he can get the proper enjoyment out of it :P

Also, while folks are out shopping... as ridiculous as it seems to say it, we might actually want to have them stop by a pet store and grab a rabbit or two for our Mars base, as a kind of breach detector.

As for the glowstick, maybe we could have Fuse catch it with his jacket?

Also, I'm gonna miss bab red when it reconnects with the main red :C Can we ask if we can get it back once it's done with its job? Then we can use it kinda like a GPS (and also just because it is SO CUTE).

We should give Baby Red a hug while we can.

There can never be enough hugs!

Yes! Hug while the bab is still small and huggable!

Or you could put the tiles you moved back in place.

They'd need to be really quick about it, since they can just damage their arm if they put the tile back up and the glow stick hits at the same time.

They have approximately 20 seconds between each glowstick pass, so I think they could slide the tile back in that time frame. But they need to go get the footlocker and table and stuff to clamber onto. Might be safer than trying to grab it themselves.

Not safe because unless someone has super human strength to NOT get dragged with the glowstick, then it would be a problem. Far safer to just put the tile back in place, but that also poses a problem of "please be fast enough: etc.

I think Caius would have said "super-human strength" and to fix the problem of not falling, just have them lay down while catching it

I still think we should get tabs on what the ravens are seeing, and macland if we can

EDIT and maybe later experiment more with those robots in bunker... B right?

Fuse nods. <3 We gotchu, precious boo.

I'm still kind of iffy about planting Baby Red in Bunker D, given how hard it is to get through the ceiling in the first place. (Also, Dr. Finch really likes the idea of talking to an alien mouth but he doesn't like this room :'D) Could we install some kind of ladder or something if we're really settling for planting Baby Red here?

As for catching the glowstick, either close the tile or use the baseball cap, but if we do use the cap, hold real tight to the door handle as the other person has a firm grip on you while doing it so you don't accidentally go toppling into the pit after the glowstick. >__>

This is a interesting place but I'm not really sure it's of any real use to us. The only advantage I see is its apparent closeness to the red's current location, meaning they'll be quicker to reconnect. Personally, I wouldn't deprive Dr. Finch of the opportunity to freely converse with this entity.
