You hug Caius

and cry.

He hugs you tightly, not sure how to comfort you but trying his best anyway.

"S'alright," he says. "You're gonna be alright."

You take a little while, but not too long. You're still on a time limit, after all. You know you made notes on your memories, but you decide to wait and look at them later, after the rest of this resolved.

"We have... about 16 hours remaining," Dr. Finch says quietly.

I actually started to cry as I read this, Matt, that's saying a lot. You've created something that touches the hearts of its readers in a way not many people can achieve. Thank you Matt.

Hug Finch, hug red, hug mom's red if we can. Get to work on Macland, we can start by recalling how the mind "normally" wakes up and go from there.

Well done Matthew, well done...

I wonder if Arvin Carpenter is under Nil's influence.

thank you, caius.

ask him if he’s doing okay as far as pain, too. it’s been a while since we dosed him. take a second to check on michelle and fuse. once that’s out of the way, it’s time to get this over with already.

We should make a note to get most of those memories back, by the way. Either a post-it note or something, since I doubt that we have the time to do it right now.

Get to work on Macland.

Assuming we're successful, we'll next need to decide what we're going to tell Shirai (if anything). If I understand correctly, we're only going to "fix" Macland, not "cure" him. Which would mean he's eventually going to succumb to Nil like the soldiers did and might try to force Shirai to view the "ritual" and become implanted with Nil herself.

I'd recommend we warn her to be suspicious of odd behavior and that we weren't able to remove what Carpenter put into Macland. She might not like it, but I'd rather her be mad than brainwashed and crazy. We've at least shown her results (assuming we're able to wake up Macland) and can offer to try to find a cure. It also gives us an excuse to tell her to cut off all ties with Carpenter that she can (and ideally blame Carpenter rather than us if Macland loses his mind).

THEN we gotta work on Fuse... once he and Michelle get back of course.

;___; thank you for the healing, comforting hug, Caius. (Thanks for letting us have that, senpai <3)


16 hours left... I think we can take a short break outside of our emotional upheaval to just drink a coffee and have a snack before heading back into Mac's head to try again?

EDIT: I posted just as the next update went up XD oh well, looks like Jane's on fire!
