Morgenstern
You attempt to communicate with Dr. Finch mentally. He turns to you, and shakes his head. "I... experienced that, I couldn't begin to tell you what you were saying."

You're not actually sure what you were trying to say, either.

Hmm. You can think clearly, but your attempts to monologue internally turnayargalabooaly. Probably something to do with your senses being confused.

You suggest, out loud (?), that you should find Geoangular Control as quickly as possible. Get the book, get out, follow all the rules, not upset any librarians. You hazard a glance at the shelves, just to see if they're arranged in any particular fashion. Unfortunately, they are not, which makes finding the book a rather tall task.

...Or it would, if some of the books on the shelves weren't helpfully red (?) in color (?), and attempting to suggest something.

Your human brain says that those books have been there the whole time, definitely, and looked exactly like that from the beginning and nothing has changed.

Your red says O_O

You wonder out loud if maybe the library has any other hints to give you, or maybe other book recommendations.

Nothing changes ever changed in the first place, but if it had, it wouldn't have been able to give you further help or offer more books.

"I..." Dr. Finch pauses, still trying to get accustomed to all this. "I really feel like we should bring Caius. As much as I, too, fear having the motorcycle stolen, I think I fear what lies in this library more. Normally, I'd have full confidence in your abilities... but with things as topsy turvy as they are, I would hate to discover your powers are malfunctioning."

Yeah Caius is more reliable here and also this place might interfere with Red's ability to converse.

Yeah. get Caius, paranoia for living takes precedence over not having to walk back..... come to think of it, think we can just take out the spark plugs from the engine? if that's still how motorcycle engines (if not engines in general) work now a days.

Have a quick peek at the title of the book directly to the right of the point of the arrow. Then go ahead and bring Caius insi--

Walk out, warn Caius of what the shit's going on in there, then bring him in.

Let's put some blood in the motorcycle and set our blood alarm to alert us if the motorcycle starts to move. If we put enough in the gas tank, we might even be able to clog the line to keep the bike from getting to far away. I mean, unless someone tows it.

Just set an alarm on Caius. High stress level or leaving.

Blood Alarming the motorcycle might be the way to go, honestly. Although I don't know if we'll get a clear signal doing that while we're inside.

Rule 1: Do not touch ANY book other than Geoangular Control for any reason what so ever.

I am expecting an orangatan to be one of tbe librarians and another to be wearing a pointy hat. There will also be someone in a suit with a bowler hat, and a lady in a Victorian dress with petticoat.

Ask Dr. Finch (in any way we can here) to bring in Caius. We should check out the book immediately after the, "red books" and see if it's what we're looking for. If not, we wait for Caius and then proceed further down the library as we are seemingly being instructed to do.

Important thing to ask the checkout polices and the return polices, and lets not find out what happens when books are over due.
