You ask if--by the same logic--it would be possible to put memories of people in here.

"Well, yeah," Red replies. "That's mostly what I am. I'm you trying to reconcile a strange new part of your mind with the fact that it's your mind and still technically you. Sometimes part of your brain wants to stay up late and eat ice cream, but the other part of your brain is warning you about work in the morning--I'm like that. I'm mostly telling you stuff you already know, I just prioritize and handle information different. You know all this already, but my saying it out loud to you is your way of processing it. I don't have an appearance, really--I look like you think I am, which is you but different."

Red shrugs.

"You could manifest other people in here if you wanted to, but they'll be subject to the limits of your memories. The Fuse in your head would act and sound like you remember Fuse acting and sounding. He might say some things you forgot Fuse said, or he might reveal some things that you could have pieced together about Fuse but never quite did... but he'd still be limited by your actual experience with the real Fuse. Though, all that syncing might make your imaginary Fuse more accurate than, say, an imaginary Caius."

You ask if you could recreate your mother in here.

"You could," Red says, "but I don't know if I'd recommend it. You're still... working through some things, regarding what you've learned about Mom. Your picture of her might not be what you're hoping for."

You're snapped out of it by the sound of the bunker door shutting. You rush back into your headspace to give Red a quick hug, then pop back into the real world to greet Fuse and Caius.

"Hey," Fuse says, "we got the stuff."

Well, now that Red has said all that, I want to see an imaginary Fuse in our headspace at one point XD;; He might actually be quite a bit more than we 'know' due to the unintentional info-bleed that happens as a side-effect of syncing too much. Hmm...

Anyway, good job, boys! :D Assuming they got all the gear we sent them out for (and possibly more), let's set up some surveillance stuff, so we can prepare to send a camera into the plant room. Also give Michelle the machete. -v-)/P

Can we ask Fuse if it's possible to find Jury through her phone, by the way? It's definitely getting worrying >.<

By the way, around what time in the day is it now? Late afternoon or early evening or?

Yeah I'm super concerned about Jury. Maybe we should send a raven to check out her workplace?

You know, I honestly forgot she actually told us straight up the name of her department, of sorts -v-;;

Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services

Is it searchable public knowledge where she works at? >_>?

tell fuse as caius about all the fun we had with the demon parrot in the other bunker. also, i can't remember what we wanted the cameras and stuff for but i suppose we could get started on that.
rufiangel 9th Nov 2017, 8:20 PM edit delete reply
I honestly forgot about the demon parrot, yes, that's a thing to talk about with everyone -v-* (Dr. Finch didn't get updated on that either, I don't believe)

Also, we got the cameras for the blood plant room, just kind of hoping to get a look in there first without us actually getting into their ourselves -v-*)/ (also for potential spying use for other situations in the future)

We'll probably need to set up the surveillance in Bunker D to get a direct feed there, but probably can dismantle it and use it for other stuff again afterwards.

Which reminds me. We have yet to buy that visor to bug Fuse with.
Steve 9th Nov 2017, 9:09 PM edit delete reply
Go through everything Fuse and Caius got. Did they get rope? Did they get dart guns somehow? Did they get cameras? I MUST KNOW!!!
Crestlinger 9th Nov 2017, 9:59 PM edit delete reply
Seconded. A full inventory check would be good now.

So when we hug Red we are, in essence, hugging ourself. I feel like that's even more reason to give her/us hugs. Glad we went back and hugged her. XD

I guess I'm just seconding everything above: inventory check, Jury search via Raven, demon parrot storytime, and hugs if it doesn't come off as us being a worry-wart. Also don't forget to put the blood alarm for Macland about if his body is moved/disturbed.
