Dr. Finch finishes printing out materials. You ready yourself on the reclined seat, and dose yourself up with painkiller so he can start working on you.

"Is any part of this bunker off limits?," Fuse asks.

"NEGaTIVE," replies 3/12. "AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT CAUsING DAMAGE TO THE FACILITY, VISITORS ARE PERMiTTED IN ALL SECTORS."

"Alright," Fuse replies.

Michelle peeks back into the hall, staring down the door at the far end of the bunker. "What's downstairs?," she finally asks.

"THE REST OF THE FACIL-CILITY," responds 8/12.

"I think," Fuse takes a deep breath. "I think she's asking why it's separated from this part. Like, why's it down there, and all this is up here?"

"IT IS TOO LArGE TO BE UPSTAIRS," replies 3/12.

"IT W-WOULD NOT FIT," adds 8/12.

Fuse and Michelle look at each other. Michelle mutters, mostly to you. "If you want us to check it out... we can check it out."

You ask Caius if he's doing alright. He nods. "Yeah. Michelle hit me with some deep shit, I'm still tryin' to recover. I asked her..."

He takes a drink of his beer. "I asked her if she thought we could do this. Y'know... all this, since she's tha big military expert. We're outnumbered, outgunned... pretty much fightin' tha whole thing society is at this point. We're pretty cool an' all, but we still got a tall order in front of us. Y'know what she said?"

He takes another, bigger drink. "Someone grew a garden on Mars. We can do whatever we want." Caius shakes his head, slowly easing into a grin. "I dunno... I don't think I was ready for that."

Uh... I'm not even gonna comment on what happened between Caius and Michelle, anyway. I guess tell fuse and Michelle they can go down as long as they don't put themselves in danger

Have I mentioned how much I like Michelle? Because I really like her. She as an amazing grasp on how things work.

Hidden depths, as they say.
Not like Caius is a one trick pony either.

Oh my gosh that is SO CUTE <333 Michelle, you awesome-sauce person you <333 spreading your optimism like the beam of sunshine you are, baby boo <3 Caius, you realise how crazy everything is now? BEYOND the sky's the limit XD (Like... past moon. Past Mars even lol) (I love how his mindblown state requires him to kind of drink beer and ponder by the flowers XD)

If it's getting a bit too cold, Michelle and Fuse can probably take leave now and we can continue exploring tomorrow. If they're still good to go, maybe they can check out that basement after all, just nip in real quick-like to see just how bad it is. -v- I feel like those two can take care of each other if it comes to it, so it should be fine with the two of them together.

I hope we remember to sincerely thank Dr. Finch later, btw, I just realise how hard he's been working and running around all day, and two procedures in a row without much of a break... plus he did such a great job on Fuse, too, considering he's using an old bio-printer without any anesthetic. We're so lucky to have him with us. ;v;*

Mm. No need to check out 'the rest of the facility' right now. This place will still be here, add to it we are planning on getting resources to ensure that it remains as such. Thank the two for their cooperation and return to base.

caius, i love you. i love michelle, too. i love them so much, my precious children. spouting deep thoughts in a bunker on mars. <3

also, perhaps it would be good to carefully make our way down into the basement of the bunker and see what the hell is down there, because why not.

I feel like we can probably safely question the androids slightly more specifically, although I suspect we might not get terribly useful answers anyway :P "What are the people doing in the tubes?" "NOT M-MUCH, BECAuSE THEY aRE FROZEN" XD

But it's worth a shot, just asking directly, at least.

Twyll, I'm going to be super annoying and point out that each android has separate speech impediments XD

So Trinity (3/12) has the audio glitching that causes the random lowercase we see (LiKE SO) while Infinity (8/12) has the repetitive or stuttering issue (LIKE LIKE LIKE S-SO).

That's as far as I can tell from my analysis of their speech patterns, anyway -v-)7 (Yes, I know I'm a complete nerd.)

Also, Trinity is the one who is Regretful, while Infinity is StopSayingThat, if that helps differentiate any better XD

Rufi, you're a genius.

I second on rufi being a genius
Twyll 18th Oct 2017, 10:46 PM edit delete reply
I *did* actually think of having two separate answers with the two speech weirdness variations (having it be "NOT M-MUCH" "BECAuSE THEY aRE FROZEN") but figured that it would just be confusing and nobody would care for such a short one-off joke >_>;

I obviously underestimated the Rufi :P
