Michelle and Fuse commence checking the bio printer room for any further monsters, and detaching the bio paste from the printer... as well as getting Michelle's arm wound taken care of.

You finish the brain transplant.

"I am... quite drained," Dr. Finch says. "Where in the world are Fuse and Michelle?"

You are, without checking manually, somehow aware that they're alright.

"Prob'ly tryin' to skip out on body duty," Caius replies. "Seriously, though, what're we gonna do with tha... uh... old me? Mail 'em to Mac? Get 'em stuffed, put 'em in tha bunker?"

Dr. Finch sighs. "It's good to know the process hasn't affected your wit at all, I suppose."

"Oh, yeah," Caius says. "I friggen died. I got jokes." Caius starts to chuckle, lightly to himself... but promptly stops and winces. "Mm, headache don't like tha laughin', though."

You give Caius just a little more painkiller. He did sort of have his skull sawed open.

Caius, I can't believe you're already up and making jokes after a brain transplant XD you goofball.

Let's skidaddle, promptly. Everyone's tired and/or wounded and we need rest, pronto. Not to mention a random gasmask guy stuck in our bunker that we proooobably need to maybe talk to. Blegh. We're going to have to try to make our way back carefully to make sure we're not being followed, too. Double blegh.

EDIT: As to what to do with the old body, I guess... put it in the morgue? ._. Or put it in the warehouse? Yikes, I have no clue.

Jane should red-check Michelle just in case that hulking mess injected some terrible disease that won't show up immediately.

Then ask Lydia to warn other hospitals and hope the messages are heard by non-queened folks.

Don't forget to let the nurses know that we've, uh... dealt with some problems with their bio-printers, and it's a liiiiiiiittle bit messy. At least they're probably very accustomed to cleaning up biohazards (and hopefully have a specialized team to come in for the really bad stuff)...

We could ask the Proto-Juries if they can freeze Caius' old body in case we need, uh... spare parts, in future?

find michelle and fuse, meet cam, prima, and dudenurse, and advise them that they should never tell anyone what actually happened here tonight. like, seriously. if they value their safety, they can't tell anyone they know us, or that we helped them, or that they helped us. things don't... things don't go well for people who meet us, usually.

Second the freezing, waste not want not and all. Can we use that bio paste at our own printer? If not tainted (check for this) bring it with us as payment for getting rid of the bugs in the system. A red scan once over for everyone, safely go back to the bunker and its question time for the thief. Also, after a rest, analyze that mushroom we looted.

Can we fix Fuse's leg before we leave or would that be overstaying our welcome?
Madd 21st Dec 2017, 12:49 AM edit delete reply
Yep time to heal up and head back after taking care of the bioprinter, and maybe Fuse's leg.

as for the body, just... shove it in the morgue. we'll be long gone before they discover they have an extra corpse.

oh, also, hopefully caius has a change of clothes... otherwise he's going to be rather chilly until we find a store that's open.

Can we just take the shirt from original-flavor Caius? I'd hate to see it go. ;_;
Mochi 21st Dec 2017, 1:29 AM edit delete reply
it's covered in blood, full of holes, and possibly irradiated. he probably shouldn't even be wearing those pants
Blue_Elite 21st Dec 2017, 1:36 AM edit delete reply
Yes! I agree entirely! We should remove Caius's pants ASAP! F-for the good of his health of course. #^_^#

To Fuse/Michelle: Bring that bug that was in the trash with us. I'd like to use it as part of the interrogation of GasMask. Show him what kind of monsters he's working with. If by some miracle he isn't Queen'd and is just paranoid and skittish, hopefully that'll convince him to talk.
Edit: If possible try and drain the blood out of the monster. Hopefully it's just blood-blood but just in case it's Thale-blood; we only need the corpse, not the fluid.

Otherwise lick wounds and go home. Maybe pick up ice cream for an ice cream party? Pretty sure ice cream is now our trademark favorite food at this point.
Also don't forget to check on Jury. 8+ hours is a long time to wait if she's repaired.

RE: Caius body:
Joke: Stuff it with the arm outstretched and the hand formed into a fist. We'll put it right in front of the bunker door. That way anyone that comes in that shouldn't will get a big ol' Caius punch.
Not Joke: The body is broken, irradiated and beyond repair. Morgue it.
