Oh, shit. I think the person we just mercy killed was Chelsea! Don’t they look kinda similar: >>900474 , >>904015 ?

I.. disagree. The only recognizable thing about the poor mutilated Karacel we just mercy killed is the collar they were wearing and and almost all of the test subjects have them, Suplex included.

We shouldn't assume that it's Chelsea we just offed yet, not until we get information otherwise.

I wasn’t looking at the collar, I was looking at the horns.

And I think it might be Chelsea because she could’ve been in this room ever since that one day and she’s been mutilated so much, it’s really difficult to recognize her.

MOTHER: You’re a disgrace to our position.
MOTHER: An absolute waste of time and air.
MOTHER: But, it’s really no wonder that Spit keeps you around.

You start scooting back, trying to be as quiet as possible as your mother’s attention is occupied. She brings her heel down on Chelsea’s head, cracking her nose against the floor.

MOTHER: You’re her perfect little tramp.

Her mouth splits all the way down, only catching a glimpse of it before you start running. She doesn’t even seem to notice, completely focused on berating the one person who stepped in to help you.

MOTHER: Easy to mangle,
MOTHER: You’re just her type.
MOTHER: You should be HAPPY to be with her.
MOTHER: It’s not like you have any chance of getting anything better- just look at you…

SUPLEX: Let’s get moving.

You start walking with Nelson, returning back to your party. You don’t feel the time pass correctly, everything seems surreal and distorted- you can’t even tell how long you’ve been walking, only focusing on the repetitive steps forward towards your goal.

Your mother’s voice fades into the background, still there but less overwhelming. You catch only snippets now, audible but fading in and out of clarity.

MOTHER: Such a hopeless creature is doomed to die alone...

NELSON: You did the right thing, Sup.
NELSON: A potentially risky thing, but the right thing.
SUPLEX: ...yeah.

MOTHER: Don’t you DARE ignore me-

NELSON: Are...are you sure you’re alright?

Your hands are trembling, but just the hands, and not nearly as bad as it was in Intake. Your head hurts, and you can still hear-

-the sounds of someone screaming, maybe you, maybe-

-shit that happened years ago and doesn’t matter anymore. Never did.

SUPLEX: Just...bad memories rearing up again.

Nelson immediately pales, and you cut him off before he can start worrying his head off.

SUPLEX: It’s not as bad as last time, so don’t freak out, alright?
SUPLEX: I did the right thing.
SUPLEX: I saved somebody.
SUPLEX: That matters more than whatever my stupid head’s cooking up.

He nods, knowing he's not gonna get much out of you for now. Smart guy.
You turn your attention back to walking, shutting up the voices screaming in your head by picturing fighting back against her, playing out gruesome situations where you fight Anya and win.

It’s not much, but it helps.

DWAYNE: We’re here.

Chance hesitates. The door they reached was clearly cleaner than the others, and completely solid, no way to look inside.

CHANCE: Mel, is this the place?
MELANIE: Mhm!
MELANIE: My mom says it’s secret, so you can’t tell anyone else, okay?
CHANCE: ...Well now it's our secret, too. We won't tell anybody.

Chance makes a gesture of zipping his lips. Melanie copies him and smiles.

You have no idea what’s inside, and from the sound of it, it could get nasty.

You’re gonna need a plan.

Melanie at the back.
Kiter at the front. Anyone who is fast enough to scout and dodge whatever we're up against, and lead it back to the waiting group fits this.
The main cluster of the group will be ready with shock sticks.

Otherwise? Search, gather supplies or info, and get past here like all the other places. Barricade the entry behind us if possible

You organize swiftly, keeping Nelson and Dwayne up front. They’ve got the shock sticks after all, and the ability to kill in one shot is an advantage you’d be a fool not to take. Chance is talking to Melanie again, and while it’s too quiet to catch, you get the feeling it’s another pep talk.

Thank god someone’s good with kids, you guess.

Just as you start exhaling in relief over not having to watch Melanie, you feel a polite tug on your tail.

MELANIE: Chance says I’ll be behind you and him, where it’s safe...you’ll be safe too, right?
SUPLEX: ...yeah. I’ll be safe.
SUPLEX: Chance and I are gonna take the middle, close enough so that if you’re in danger-
MELANIE: But...what if you get hurt?
SUPLEX: We’re...grown-ups.
SUPLEX: Tough ones. You don’t have to worry about that.
SUPLEX: We’ll be right ahead of you, and, uh…

You twitch your tail a bit, an idea coming to mind.
SUPLEX: If shi- if stuff gets rough out there, you hug my tail.

She looks up at you curiously for a moment, then to your tail. Tentatively, she reaches out, before holding it close to her. You lift her up off the ground with a quick wrapping motion.

SUPLEX: Tada. Safe and sound.

Melanie’s giggling, and you catch yourself smiling in spite of the situation at hand. You can feel Chance’s own smile without even looking.
You quickly let the kid down and try to focus on the door in front of you- watching Dwayne slide an ID card into the slot.

It’s just a room, but a fairly large one...with zero cover. Nelson swears under his breath as he pushes you and Chance back into the hallway, Dwayne flattening himself to the wall. From the brief look you got inside, there are two chambers at the far end, both guarded-

And just your luck, one of the guards starts heading toward the open doorway, oblivious to your presence.

????: Hello?
????: Don’t you know there’s a lockdown going on?
????: No one’s supposed to be here, especially not now…

No. 910673 ID: fbc0a3

The order you were in would be great for a combat situation but you've lucked into some stealth. Swap positions with Dwayne, leaving Melanie in the middle. Then pull the guard around the corner and force them into a headlock. Keep them from saying anything, pressure on the throat, the silence will hopefully draw anyone else into range. Try to be non-lethal, because a dead guard is bad cover if you need it.
>>
No. 910805 ID: 787c3d

I like the idea of Suplex leading a charge with Nelson and Dwayne closely behind, tackle the closest enemy and keep moving with him as a meat shield until reach the second. This plan depend on her being able to endure their attacks until they can be reliable shocked.

It’s probably just the angle of the picture, but it looks like the other guard is either sitting on the ground in front of that door or they’ve been knocked out.

That could work.

We could also pick up the first guard and throw them at the second guard.

Grab the guard and try to keep them silent. Maybe knock them out. The guard should get suspicious after enough time and check things out themselves.

You gently pull Melanie up into the middle, shaking your head when she tries to speak up. She falls silent with a nod, pressing herself against the wall and reaching for Chance’s hand. The dog takes it without a word, pulling her close to him, and sending a nervous glance in your direction.

You scoot past Nelson and Dwayne, the two of them wordlessly allowing you forward. The guard’s claws on tile are the only indicator of where he is, and you’re holding your breath by the time he gets just close enough to pull into a headlock, squeezing his throat as close as you can without going lethal.

It’s more difficult than you’d like, used to outright strangling or snapping...a fact that you shove away, to be bothered by later.

The moments pass way too slowly, sweat starting to drip down your face. The other guard doesn’t move, silent for a solid minute before calling out, his voice wracked with nerves and shaking.

???? (2): Please…If you’re going to do something, do it quickly.
???? (2): I can’t get up, and...and I know what’s coming for us.
???? (2): He does too.

The guard you’re holding nods as well as he can, only tearing up a little as he looks up at you with a resigned expression.

At their current state, I really don't think these guards are that much of a threat. Ask them to drop their weapons, of course, all of their weapons, but also let them in on what the situation is. That if they want to leave this shoddy place, that this might be their only chance. And that we could use any help they could offer us, in exchange of their safety. Maybe see if we can help out the guy who can't move?

You start turning the corner with the guard in your arms, ears flattening against your head at the amount of blood splatter inside.

The guard on the floor’s leg is mangled, a massive chunk bitten out. His shaking body’s just barely propped against the door to a test chamber, chest heaving.

An entire chunk of his foreleg is missing flesh, muscle and is bleeding out. That's his fucking exposed tibia bone in there.

You can't tie off a wound like that. Just end him quick. He'd only slow everyone down.

Are you fucking kidding?
He's not showings signs of going into shock. He's not only conscious, but lucid and able to follow complex trains of thought.
He's not even bleeding that badly!
Yeah, he's missing a pound of flesh or two, but even if all you do is provide basic first aid he stands a pretty good chance of keeping the leg and eventually regaining quite a bit of function in it.
Staunch the bleeding, bandage it up, and get him out of here. He wants to protect Melanie, and he doesn't need full mobility to shove himself between her and danger.
Attempting to save him also further establishes for Melanie that we have mercy and compassion, which would make her trust us more.

Do you need an explanation on how to sanitize and field-dress a wound?

I think that is the middle bone of his phalanges.

Dwayne keeps close to you as you approach the guard. Nelson heads slowly to mess with the other chamber, looking back over his shoulder occasionally.

SUPLEX: We’re just passing through, and we don’t want to kill anymore than we have to...or what’s requested, I guess.
SUPLEX: Do you want us to make it quick for you-
DWAYNE: For the love of- Suplex, just because the man’s got a bad leg doesn’t mean he’s going to die.

If we’re gonna bring Melanie in to calm down the other 2 kids, then we should at least cover up the guard’s leg, so she doesn’t see the giant chunk that’s missing.

Not in front of the children. We’re trying to calm them down so that they’ll come with us.

I doubt we can bring him and the children, they probably don't want to be around him, considering what he had to do. I'm guessing he was assigned to conduct the more brutal experimentation.

From the most recent update, i dont know how much children is left (phrasing is intentional). Gross children really doesnt matter when you cant take 5/8 children and 1/2 children and combine them to get 1 children with remainder.

He’s talking about thing he did in the past, not something he did right now.

There’s still 2 children that we’ve gotta convince to come with us.

Why do you suddenly think the children are dead?

You drop the first guard straight onto the floor and run to Nelson’s side, exhaling only when you realize he’s unharmed- but very, very distressed. He doesn’t say a single word, just stares ahead, unable to blink.

The child inside the chamber coughs, a wet, struggling sound. Your eyes adjust to the dark interior and the bottom of your stomach drops out, unable to stop yourself from taking a few steps towards her.

Her breath is labored, and just one look tells you that the kid is sick, has been for hours. Her dress is stained with something black and horrible, the same kind of substance you saw in Storage, kept amidst the meat lockers. The same kind of substance you’ve seen spilling out of some siblings you were forced to fight, sickeningly sweet and dark as pitch.

Melanie races forward, wrapping her sister up in a tight squeeze.

MELANIE: Maes!!

Maes looks like she’ll be sick again for a moment, but calms as soon as she registers who’s holding her.

MAES: ...Melly, is that you?
MAES: It hurts...
MELANIE: I’m here! I’m here, I’m here…

Melanie lets her sister go, still holding tight onto her hand and watching with a worried expression. Maes looks up at you, glazed over eyes moving from person to person.

MAES: Who are they?
MAES: Where’s our mom?
MAES: ...did I do it wrong, again?
MAES: I tried so hard, I promise…

You back away from the kids, not even trying to hold the anger back as you lift up the second guard just enough to slam his head into the wall, the other flinching.

SUPLEX: Just your fucking job, huh?
SUPLEX: What the fuck did you do to her?!
SUPLEX: They’re...they’re just kids!

He says nothing, not even when you slam his head again. It takes a few moments before the first guard finally speaks up, his voice dazed.

???? (1): T-Toxins.
SUPLEX: Wh-
???? (1): Today was toxin testing.
???? (1): She’s digested everything up until now without trouble, no matter what it is.
???? (2): Turns out, even little bits of toxic waste, those, those are fine.
???? (2): Bigger doses, though...
???? (2): They finally found out how much makes her sick.

The second guard lets his head loll onto his shoulder, the nervous smile back again. The first remains silent, avoiding eye contact like his life depended on it.

???? (2): There’s nothing here worth sparing anymore.

Tell him to fix it, maybe hurt his wound to motivate him, and shut him up if he isn't useful. Then force the other one to give us something actually useful even if it's a fucking guess.

patch them up, help them out, get them to give you whatever info they can

they may be determined to die but if they want to actually stop this, if they want to take responsibility and stop being cowards, they'll come with you. if you get out they can live with what they've done and help stop it from happening again.

also check on maes obvs. are they okay?

also also how is maes pronounced

You keep saying these are just kids, but these are Mother's favorites, the most promising candidates for her heir. The heir Mother seeks must be as much of a badass motherfucker as she is, so these... kids...

If you take Maes with you, just be very careful that her extreme hunger cravings don't include... you. You're familiar enough with hunger cravings, I'm sure. Well, hers might be uh... more.

Oh, speaking of those files, Maes's file says she can unhinge her jaw, but your file doesn't say you can unhinge your jaw at all. Looks like they don't know everything you're capable of. You might be able to surprise them if you can do stuff that's not in your file.

Huh, rows of teeth, too. Now that I look at it, Maes is kind of like a mini you!

Rather than worry about the ethics here, lets try to be a bit more pragmatic regarding the whole thing. Find out where an antidote is. If there isn't one, try to find out the properties of this stuff. We have options like drinking water, milk, milk of magnesia, eating activated charcoal, and to induce vomiting.

You let the guard go after one more quick slam, figuring it’d be for good measure. He collapses, and you could care less. Seeing how Maes was doing was a higher priority than whatever the hell this jackass wanted.

Approaching the kids fills you up with nerves all over again, Maes doing no better than earlier.

SUPLEX: Hey, uh…
MELANIE: This is Suplex! She’s really, really nice.
MELANIE: She’s like...a new big sister to me!! So I’m sure she’ll be yours too!

You try not to look as surprised as you feel. Warm and fuzzy is not a familiar feeling, but not a bad one either. More to think about later.

MAES: Oh...okay….
MAES: Hi, then...I’m-
SUPLEX: It’s okay. I know who you are, Maes, right?


She nods, swallowing hard.

MAES: S-sorry. I’m trying. I promise.
MAES: I really, really promise…

The glazed look to her eyes returns, and the rage building in your stomach returns with full force.

SUPLEX: Watch your sister, Melanie.
SUPLEX: I have to go talk to those other guys. See what I can get.
CHANCE: I’ll stay with them.
CHANCE: I could use Mel’s help clueing Maes in, anyway.
Melanie smiles wide, only fading when Maes starts hacking up sludge again.

You storm back to the guards, snarling.

SUPLEX: Fix it.
???? (2): I can’t-
SUPLEX: Then tell us how we can!
SUPLEX: She hasn’t done anything wrong, and she needs our help.
SUPLEX: Hate what you had to do that much? Then make yourselves useful, or stay out of our way while we handle it ourselves.


The second guard doesn’t respond, not a single word or gesture. You turn to the first one, watching as he struggled to his feet.

SUPLEX: There has to be something you can do. Something you can give us.
???? (1): Th-the dosage we gave her would be way beyond lethal to anyone else.
???? (1): There’s nothing to be done. Just letting it pass through her system and recording how long it takes, how severe the reactions are...that was our assignment.
???? (1): Her condition’s been improving, it was worse earlier.
???? (1): We legitimately can’t give you anything to help, but she’s not going to die.
???? (1): Dr. Artag makes sure of it. Very specific dosages, steady increments, plenty of controls...
???? (1): It’s taken a lot of trials to get to this point, and probably the last one we’d be doing.
???? (1): ...probably.

He goes silent, shuffling his feet.

???? (1): I’m sorry. It’s all I can tell you.
???? (2): That’s not even the problem kid, h-haha.
???? (2): It’s the other one you have to look out for.

???? (1): I’m loathe to agree, but...MC-001 here is well behaved.
???? (1): She’s not the one who bit him.
???? (1): The tests we’ve been running should keep MC-003 sedated enough, but not for long.
???? (2): Drainage tests are a bitch, b-both for the kid and for us. I can’t blame anybody for that reaction, can’t blame at all there...
SUPLEX: The fu-
You remember there are kids here, and hold back on swearing. Even if you really want to.
SUPLEX: ...what’s a drainage test?
???? (1): MC-003 can’t form clots correctly, not without help.
???? (1): None of the triplets have blood per se, but MC-003 will bleed out until patched up. Not to the point of death, the sludge regenerates too quickly for that…

He grimaces, still in pain from the rough treatment you gave him.

???? (1): We can give you some bandages to help...without them you’ll have problems.

take the bandages. is there any more info we need to press him for? i’m not.. i don’t think we need to worry about the kids hurting us if we’re careful and honest w/ them, so our priority has to be helping them asap

Yeah, these kids are definitely going to end up calling you Mama Suplex. Especially if you start acting like a better mother than their real mom, who is a gigantic bitch.

Sludge? Guess that's a symptom of his Horror infusion.
Well, first thing's first, ask how long the sedation lasts. We're going to have to get him out of that room and bandaged up before he can wake up enough to bite anyone, then figure out who can keep track of him when he's awake without getting bit.
How strong is he? Maybe we can just find a blanket or something and keep him bundled up? Depending on his disposition he may find it comforting.

Sister. Suplex didn't like the comparison to Mama last time, and Melanie said sister anyway.
I definitely agree about insisting about the names. No more emotional distance for them.

Take the bandages after that, then ask them for anything to watch out for with the sludge and general care, then get back to the kids with the "good" news. Then let's see Mason.
