So, Dr. Finch and Caius will obviously get a room to themselves.

That leaves you, Michelle, Lydia, Elizabeth, and Fuse. Michelle seems pretty chill with whatever you come up with, and isn't pressing for any particular arrangement. You're... hesitant to put anyone in a room by themselves. It could lead to trouble if some kind of attack does go down, or just some general awkwardness with the locals if someone comes knocking.

You mentally ask Fuse if he has any preferred room arrangements.

"Not really," he replies. "I'm down for whatever, I guess."

Even rooming with Lydia?

He... pauses. His expression tightens a bit, but you can't really parse it. "Uh. ...Yeah, that's... that's fine."

Is it? Really?

"YeahIsaidit'scool," he forces out, almost in one breath.

Let the most awkward sleepover of all time begin!

*dies laughing* XD
Fuse is either nervous/embarrassed... or absolutely mortified at the thought that Lydia might pull him into vent hermiting or start telling him more stories to fuel his paranoia. It's probably the former, the latter would still be absolutely hilarious though XDDD

Fuse, enjoy it. You're sharing a room with two lovely ladies. You're how old again? Riiiiiiiight.

Just smile and nod, young man, smile and nod. ;) (totally expecting nothing risque to happen)

Hmm, can we check on how Liz is doing being exposed to high doses of Lydia? We might not want to room them together if it turns out that Liz is gonna snap and throttle her in her sleep... (Because let's face it, Lydia has *totally* gotta be a sleep talker.)

Fuse/Lydia/Liz and Michelle/Mine sounds like it could be alright. I don't wanna force Fuse and Lydia into an awkward spot with putting them alone together, but maybe having someone else there will give them time to hang out without making them feel too awkward about it? Or Liz could end up feeling like a total third wheel, who knows XD

I would like to see what kind of interactions Mine and Michelle might have. It's been a topic of quite some debate in the Discord whether Mine and Michelle could have a proper relationship, what with the pedestal thing and also Mine having access to Michelle's mind and body, and how sketchy that would or wouldn't be. Maybe their interactions might clarify that for us a bit.

I'm glad it looks like we're rooming with Liz, as I'd like us to get to know her better, and having Michelle there should help it not just be one loooong awkward silence.

Have you not read the comments? It looks like it's going to be Lydia, Liz, and Fuse.

Changing my vote, want to see what happens if Lydia and Fuse are alone together.

On the one hand, that sounds like it could potentially be hilarious and I wanna see it too. On the other, we're supposed to be REDUCING Fuse's stress, not creating more XD

Yeah never mind first thing is what I'm voting for.

I can't get a read off of Fuse so I think putting him, Liz and Lydia together is the best way to do damage control. That way Liz and Fuse can keep each other in check and share the burden of Lydia (if she is one) so neither one has to endure a full dose of her hyperness.

Michelle and mine get a room Liz Fuse and Lydia we can always steal Liz away to bond with her and leave Lydia and Fuse alone and this way it’s less obvious that we are hooking them up.
Caydenite 6th Jul 2018, 10:16 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, if we set up a potential extraction that sounds fine. I just don't want us to block anyone who doesn't want a block.

Make sure Lydia knows not to leave and do any reporter-related stuff. Today seriously isn't the day for it.

As for before we head off to bed, get some ice cream with Michelle, maybe. Just to put the cherry on top of the day.

Whatever happens, get some board games or packs of cards, to keep people busy it they can't or don't want to sleep. A game or two of cards can always help awkwardness go away.

I also think it would be funny to see how awkward Finch and Caius would be. Wouldn't it be strange for them to finally have some privacy? I feel like they would have a very rocky start before they get used to being alone

I think Elizabeth's emotional growth will benefit mots right now from the perspective of someone less directly involved. That's why I support her sharing a room with Lydia, who's position as a maverick reporter probably makes her observations a little more objective.
