You tell the raven to go ahead and get out of the hospital.

You let everyone know that Howler's apartment, and the hospital, looked pretty clear from what you could tell. Though, you only got to see Howler's apartment from the outside, and there was an odd noise in the hospital.

You also tell everyone that you remembered your own computer. Michelle grins, just shaking her head. "That's what you got to look forward to if you guys sync too much, Fuse. You're gonna start forgettin' stuff all the time."

"That should be good enough to work with," Fuse says. You also ask about the fingerprint scanner, and if there's a way to bypass it. "I think I could slap something together. Whoever goes to get the computer might have to make a stop at a hardware store or something, but I can make you a list of what I need to make a key bypass."

"D'ya need to know what kinda lock it is?," Michelle asks. "There's a lot of different styles of fingerprint scanners."

Fuse shakes his head. "I've seen it. Or Blondie's seen it, and now I've seen it. I remember that basement like I was there."

Night has fallen in the time it took you to fly your raven up and down the city. You have plans to pick up items for Fuse, grab the computer from your house, grab the e-mails from Howler's computer, and grab the surveillance footage from either Howler's or the hospital. The question now is how much you want to do tonight, and how much you want to save for tomorrow--and who you want to send to do what.

At present, you are still personally exhausted from the trip into Macland's mind, and manipulating the blood in Dr. Finch. Fuse is also worn out, and his burns are still fresh enough to hinder him physically.

Caius and Michelle are fine.

Pity that corpse eater was so through, a random digit-al entry lying about would be just the point of entry they need.
As to the computer...*looks at syncing fanart

it certainly would have been... handy

I vote we go get the computer and the stuff to make the key bypass tonight via Michelle and/or Caius, since they're good to go. I don't think it'll take them *too* long to make the trip.

Fuse and Jane should just rest I think.

of course fuse can make a key bypass! he's awesome! i think we should pick up the computer and stuff that fuse needs tonight, if we can find a hardware store that's open this late. if not, we'll just get the computer and then he can give us his shopping list tomorrow. we'll send michelle, caius, or both, since we're pretty pooped out. michelle can probably handle picking up the computer on her own, if caius wants to stay back, but i'm still kind of hesitant about sending anyone to do anything alone.

also, can we check on finch one more time? he hasn't done his signal in a while, we should peek in and make sure everything is alright on that front.

Ya. If the doctor's awake and everything is all cool for now, send him our love.

You know after I posted I thought about the lateness and stuff after I posted, to my bemusement; in Hong Kong, hardware stores easily open until 10:00pm if not later but I realise that in Western regions this kind of thing is unheard of XD when I visited London, Sydney and Vancouver I was stunned to see stores close at 5:00pm, it was so bizarre to me :'D

I don't know how this world operates, but I would guess in the Middle Tiers there might be a chance of a late-night hardware store being open. We'll see XD
Mochi 20th Sep 2017, 8:12 PM edit delete reply
yeah, the place i work at closes at ten pm, and the only things that are open later than that are some fast food places and convenience stores. :'D

oh, and the tim hortons, of course
rufiangel 20th Sep 2017, 8:15 PM edit delete reply
Dang, your work place opens eaaarly and ends laaaate! @_@

Is there such thing as a 24 hour hardware store? ._.

EDIT: Is Tim Hortons open 24 hours? >_>? I remember we went to one in Vancouver and they sold coffee and... Tim Bits? Which are supposed to be the centers of the doughnuts or something if I remember correctly. But like we had a dude with us named Tim and I recall (with a degree of shame and fondness) all the terribad jokes were made.
Mochi 20th Sep 2017, 8:26 PM edit delete reply
i believe most of them are, yes! unless they're inside something that isn't open 24 hours, like another store or something

and yes tim bits are donut holes basically. they're really good, i actually had some yesterday *^* i liked their iced cappuccinos myself.

Despite the terribad jokes, I also recall the Tim Bits being pretty delicious XD

Randomly... uh, should Michelle/Caius pick up some clothes or something for Fuse as well while they're at it? If they can, anyway. :'D

I'm imagining Jane's desktop wallpaper to be something like this.

If I was Red right now... I know I'd want to stick my hand through Fuse's body to see how he'd react. Mayhaps even say something like "Stomach Burster!" as I pushed my whole head through to try and startle him.

But then I'd think of the burns and how that might make him jump and feel bad... T.T so then I'd abort it, cause I wouldn't want to injure him, just spookify him.

I mean, cause I'd have something to do for the first time... since ever... that wasn't just talking to Jane. I'd want to try this... socializing thing.

Waaaaaiiit a minute...

Is Fuse gonna hear the voices of everyone else talking while he's asleep like Jane does?
rufiangel 20th Sep 2017, 8:36 PM edit delete reply
It seems like our Red doesn't like crowds, so if she feels like popping up to say hi to Fuse while the others are away, that's possible -v-

As to whether Fuse can also perceive through others while asleep, I would guess probably not because that's a specific blood power. But he might be able to glean information that Jane gets from those nighttime excursions of the mind afterwards, should they sync again?

Hello from New Zealand! I've finally caught up to the present, and just want to say how much I've loved it!

I vote Caius and Michelle get the computer and parts, and then just a car load of takeout, ice cream and spare burn cream.

Also, if Jane is up to it, we should check in on Mac. We haven't felt him die yet, but we know he has been found.
Baeronius 20th Sep 2017, 9:46 PM edit delete reply
For some reason, I imagined the car filled with those items like a swimming pool. I hope the burn cream is edible...
