Michelle wipes the fog off the glass.

"Nah, it's just your... usual... run o' the mill giant eye."

You, as discreetly and calmly as possible, suggest that the two of them should get out of there.

"Ain't gotta tell us twice," Michelle says, and begins climbing the ladder.

Fuse notices the giant, grinning mouth in the far back container.

"Oh," he says. "That's why."

He quickly follows her up the ladder. The two of them tell the androids they'll be back later with supplies, and they exit the bunker.

Dr. Finch finishes patching up your back.

"I believe our current equipment should be enough to try and work on your shoulder and ear with, though you may wish to wait until tomorrow for that," he says. "It's going to involve actual surgery, and will be far more time consuming."

Wow that eye is pretty darn HUGE and creepy ya :'DDD just how big did Lasker get? DANG.

Can we give Dr. Finch a sleepy hug for all his hard work and... let's all go to bed? XD; We can reconvene in the morning for our usual 'what shall we do today' meeting, barring any unpleasant surprises beforehand.

I guess it's good that the robots aren't really programmed for social graces, so they wouldn't be insulted at us rushing out of their place so fast...

Sleeping sounds like a good idea. Don't forget meditation practice!

I've been mulling this over and wondering if maybe we could go a step further than meditation. Perhaps we could develop a counter-memetic defense?

We keep getting rebuffed by simple fears and nightmares. If we could suggest and draw out happy, pleasant thoughts instead, maybe we can dispel or weaken the negative mental defenses.
I'm thinking focusing on kittens would be an easy way to create a positive emotion we could then suggest to the other mind we're force-syncing.

Okay, yeah. Thaaat's definitely some kaiju-tier bullshit. Man, where the hell are we even gonna start on that? Eesh. In any case, let's thank Dr. Finch for patching up our back, and just... rest up for tomorrow. Which is... certainly gonna be a day. (I say, as if most of the other days we've had so far haven't been an experience in and of themselves)

So... the enemy red... the one mom fought with across countless star systems and finally defeated before limping to Earth to recuperate and this facility is what's keeping it from waking back up and eating us (and the Queen users, actually) alive.

Yea, keeping that thing on ice is a high priority. Hate to sound like a robot, but the facility MUST continue to exist. :/

So ok yeah I didn't see that till now, that's a red. So either it's laskers (which makes no sense, why would he have a red), the red is Laskers (certainly more plausible) or it's the red of the original Martian blood monster, we know they can survive past the death of the original as evidenced by mom's red still being around
