You check your phone's GPS. It does not seem to be picking up a signal.

"It's probably because of the space shenanigans," Fuse says. He motions for the glow stick back, and you hand it to him. "I can't tell if this bunker would be a starting point for the weird door setup, or a logical conclusion... like, if you can make a pocket of space connect to a totally different pocket of space, you're sort of obligated to try connecting one end of a room to another end of the room."

Fuse slides one of the ceiling tiles just slightly out of place, compares the glow stick to it... and then lets it drop. After somewhere around twenty seconds, the glow stick returns, perpetually falling straight down. "Look, I'm doing science here. We can come back here later and see if the glow stick's drifted sideways any. Or disappeared entirely, which would freak me smooth out."

He climbs down from the stack of items. You and Fuse start taking the foot locker and the small table back to Bunker A, the glow stick still whizzing by every once in a while as you exit Bunker C.

"We got three of those air filter masks," Michelle says when you return. "It might not even be an issue, but... y'know. Who all's goin' into Bunker D?"

As a side note, I saw this video on Tumblr and figured it might be relevant.

I know we keep taking Dr. Finch everywhere but he's like... the most likely to gain great insight XD I vote to take him along again for the ride lol

And maybe Caius, since he's prolly itching to move after being in the bunker most of the morning XD

EDIT: It took me this long to realise you GIF-ed the glowstick falling XDDD gosh, that's fun <3

I did a science rant on the prior page, but oh well.

Long story short, the "eddy" area would cause the glowstick to speed up, then slow down repeatedly. If it slowed down enough it would be caught in the eddy.

Well, at some point, air monecules, minimal differeces in angle from the point of start and other aspects of physics that can be summed up as "it's not a perfect world" will make the glowstick fall too much to the side to hit the hole, or at least it SHOULD.
Also, protagonist and Michelle/Fuse/Caius (depending on how healed they are, otherwise in order)

Man, I hope nothing gets in that glowstick's way or else it's gonna be /really/ awkward when it hits someone. Mind, that's probably something not worth worrying about. Either way... I'm gonna second taking Finch and Caius along for the trip into Bunker D.

This comic makes me so happy.

Also, I honestly don't care who enters Bunker D, and would let who ever wants to, do.
