If I may speak to our own Lavender for a moment to help her mood...We're sorry Lavender. We messed up. We didn't MEAN to make you do things you're not proud of. We're just...jumbled. We're all different, and have our different views and opinions, but our main goal is you, our "host", so to speak. We'll figure this out, and we'll straighten ourselves out. We're to blame here, not you. And as soon as I find the mote calling himself "Ass of Hat" for making you ask that fucking FNaF question I will...well I don't know what I CAN do to him seeing as we're just motes of light but I will guarantee it'll be violent.

Matilda would have seen what happened with you and Jerry and she likes you. She can give you her opinion. Also, maybe warn you about who we pissed off by doing that.
Also maybe give you an idea about what kind of dress design Victoria would like!

> You head to Matilda first. Before you even have a chance to speak or react, she reaches down and pulls lavender close into a tight hug. She smells ever so faintly slightly sweet, almost sickly sweet, and their voice is forlorn, tired.

[MATILDA] : This is my fault... I should have told you, should have given you better guidance...

Matilda, No. Don't blame yourself.

We're the ones who are sorry.

Don't blame yourself. We wouldn't have listened. Now, we're sadder but wiser.

We came to apologize, but I guess there's not much else to say. The Painting looms behind the couch.

The ironic thing is that I'm not even sure your little warning counts. I'm not even one of the people who said anything. I just don't know if what you said counts or not, or if you absolutely need to spoiler it.

Oh and before we move on, I NEED to say this, this ISN'T for Lavender to say...
...you two...YOU TWO. You two are some real piece of work you know that? First have you FORGOTTEN THAT LAVENDER WILL SAY SOMETHING IF IT FORMS A SENTENCE SHE CAN SPEAK? You literally made her say what you said directly to Peabody. That's why he got so mad at us and left. And your OUTBURSTS are CHILDISH when they are like this. Next time you two, or ANYONE HERE, gets emotional? BITE YOUR TONGUE. Remember, WE CAN BE SEEN, AND HEARD.

And this is just a warning in general that here we should probably REALLY watch what we say, unlike usual.

Especially you. You're probably the reason Peabody got angry at us. Because Lavender probably said this. All of it. RIGHT TO HIS FACE.

Regret serves no function if it does not affect one's decisions in the future.
Hopefully our collective learns from these mistakes.

However, you made no such error. You could not predict the interaction with Peabody, and even aware of it as you were during its happening, there was not time to intervene.

I do want to ask if there is anyone in particular we should prioritize for apology; Peabody's friends, essentially.

"A voice suggests to say: 'The voices. Is there any way to manage which I say, and which I don't say, and to know when to do one or the other? I'm so new, it' so difficult. Some of them may be malicious, or just damaged, and I haven't the experience to know when this is. And I don't have a means to communicate without them.'"

Lavender is unable to discuss anything too meta with non-meta monsters. Meddling in affairs beyond our control only invites disaster...

Why are we moping around with everybody we come across? Yea, shit happened, but if we keep this up we're gonna end up the same as the rest of the residents here, spending our days cooped up in our room being lonely and sad over things that happened in the past that we can't change. I think the best thing to do now is have a chipper attitude about all this.

> Matilda has been holding Lavender for what feels like ages, silently. She gazes solemnly at the spider for what feels like forever, just silently contemplating what to do next.

[MATILDA] : How foolish I've been being. I had thought to myself that I could guide you along, as you were only new to this world, unaware of it's mechanisms. I see now that you are your own person, and are capable of making your own decisions, fixing your own mistakes, celebrating your own triumphs. ...Thank you for the apology, though I do not think I, or indeed anyone here, is the one that needs it. Forgiving yourself is a good first step. ...You are very kind, and very brave. And I hold you very dear to my heart.

WOAH!!! Well, that answers my question of "how big did Matilda get from evolving?"!

Also, since it's been a while, here's a reminder for everyone: Lavender will repeat everything we say out loud! So if you don't want Lavender to say something, make sure you put it in spoilers!

>Matilda's crying blood.
Wipe away her tears and give her a hug with all 8 of your legs!

Thank her for the hug and the kind words, you feel much better now!

> 8BIT seems surprised about your return, and before he can speak, you tell him you've figured out the sigil. He looks a little embarressed and rubs the back of his head.

[8BIT] : Yea, hah... I couldn't find anything on it. Guess you're better at this than me... Which figures! I'm not good for much.

> Lavender describes the recent turn of events, and 8BIT looks a little bit grave.

[8BIT] : Pretty sure everyone knows already, Lavender. Peabody leaving was a big upset, one we'd been expecting for a while. He never really got along too well with Toblerone, due to Toblerone's more lenient ruleset for humans. Most places have them as 'kill on sight'. It was... sorta expected.

Make distressed spider noises and say, "Nooo, don't say that about yourself!" Then hug him and tell him, "I'm not letting go until I've hugged away all those bad thoughts about yourself! None of them are true!"
>>
No. 822463 ID: 91ee5f

>>822451
And then tell 8bit that the only reason you found out what to do with the Sigil is because Toblerone saw how much you were struggling, took pity on you, and flat out told you the answer. It turns out, all you had to do was put it on one of the corners of the painting.

And now you feel kinda dumb for over thinking such a simple puzzle.

Here's hoping 8bit will say, "You're not dumb." or something to that effect.

> The sudden hug causes 8BIT to fluster and stumble over their words to the point it's a little hard to understand for a moment, before the mentioning of her feeling dumb causes him to stop, and very lightly pat her on the back.

[8BIT] : Hey, it's okay to ask for help. That's not dumb at all. It might be a bit hypocritical of me, but... I don't think you should downplay yourself like this. It's not healthy. I know you're a little stressed but, chin up, alright? It gets better. It always does.
