You maneuver back out of Macland's brain, and begin to perceive through him more conventionally.

Macland slowly comes to, look around... confused, at first, but then seeming to search more frantically. He stumbles out of bed, barely getting his balance back before he starts heading for the door.

And shouting.

"HEY! Somebody!"

The guard that Shirai had posted pops through the door, overhearing Macland from the hallway.

"Mac? Oh my god, you're awake!"

"Yeah, caught that did ya? Where's my phone at?"

The guard is visibly excited, looking back down the hall to see if there's any nurses around.

"Mac, you've been in a straight up coma for--"

"I don't give a hot shit," Macland says, cutting the guard off. "Get me... my phone. Now."

The guard stands there, stunned... but finally turns and heads down the hall, looking for a member of the hospital staff to help retrieve Macland's cell phone.

You're pulled back to the bunker by the sound of the entrance closing. You wander out to the front part of the bunker to find Fuse and Michelle, both looking absolutely exhausted. Also smoking for some reason.

"Hey," Fuse says.

"How's it goin'?," Michelle asks. "Any luck? I thought you'd be in bed by now," she says with a very weary chuckle.

Explain real quick that Macland's awake and trying to make a phone call >_> we need to observe that, stat!

(And uh ask about the cigs later XD;;)

EDIT: I love that Fuse and Michelle are both chill and back, I'm so glad. We *will* be in bed soon, Michelle... provided Macland's wakeful state is verified by Shirai immediately. >_>a Maybe he's trying to get his phone so he can call Shirai?

EDIT2: Oh my gosh we should also ask Fuse and Michelle what they managed to haul out of Howler's place, and what else they had to face while they were there of course >__>a but later. Man. Priorities. Argh. XD;;;;

... It's not possible that he's trying to reach someone to tell them about something he picked up from Jane during the synch, right?

It's entirely possible. Though I'm guessing since he was asleep for the force-sync, the only thing he'd get is cute-nonsense from our human-side or horrifying, nightmare stuff from our eldritch-side.

It's more likely he's going to call Shirai to find out what happened or Carpenter to COMPLAIN about what happened.

Uh, we need sleep.

Check on the phone call. Unfortunately we NEED to find out if Macland is going to make a pest of himself and make more trouble for us (though hopefully the Bunker's location is still safe and we can deal with that tomorrow).

Then, we should hear about Fuse and Michelle's adventure.

Finally, assuming Fuse doesn't have too much on his plate already from Howler's place, we need to inform him about Nil and how we might have to remove some "infected memories" to cure him.
We ALSO need to decide if we want to do that tonight or tomorrow; because Nil spreads during sleep, the longer we wait the worse Fuse's situation gets.

We need to have someone call Shirai immediately and inform her of the danger Macland still poses, and suggest that she keep a *very* close watch on him. (Actually, I guess we should wait until Macland's done, as I assume he's calling her first thing :P And we don't want him to get a busy signal.)

So. Nil seems to think that humans are worthless due to the mortality thing. Also he knows about us, but that could be conjectured from him being in our brain for some time. But he still wants control of their bodies. Is this just to control more of them, or does he have some darker goal?

Totally out there, but what if Nil is StQ with emotion? StQ given intelligence?

Phone Shirai. She doesn't have a clue what Jane lost to pull this, and the job is not totally over yet - but that's the first step done. We'll need more time to help him get rid of that blasted thing.

Sleep, then I guess it's Fuse's time to get blood-cleantex'd and find where Nil is hiding inside him.

give our two favorite cinnamon-rolls a hug and ask how they are doing. also how does Blondie feel about everyone romantic or otherwise.

So this Nil can be talked to.
I wonder if he's like a distant cousin?

Can we infect him with hugs?

Look at that sassy stance, if I didn't know any better I'd say that man certainly wasn't carrying a cosmic Eldritch horror in his mind, latching onto emotions brought about of gutaral primal instincts!
