/message Pancake_High_Admiral Eugene?

/message Pancake_High_Admiral Uh, Eugene?

/beep --at_user=Pancake_High_Admiral

22:00 | Empress_Of_Silence | ...

22:00 | Empress_Of_Silence | Computer, find Eugene.

22:01 | System | Query in progress.

22:02 | System | Eugene Panak is in the western gardens, second storey.

22:03 | Empress_Of_Silence | Why would he be there?

22:03 | System | No one hears you (empty channel).

22:04 | Empress_Of_Silence | Computer, find Viktoriya Ivanova.

22:04 | System | Viktoriya Ivanova is in the castle dungeons, cell block A.

22:04 | Empress_Of_Silence | Elaborate.

22:05 | System | Query in progress.

22:06 | System | Viktoriya Ivanova is in her cell. There are three (3) security conspirators near her.

22:06 | Empress_Of_Silence | Notify me if anything changes in her status. Locate Ashley O'Sullivan.

22:06 | System | Query in progress.

22:07 | System | Query in progress.

22:08 | System | Query is taking an unusually long time.

22:08 | Empress_Of_Silence | No ****.

22:08 | System | No one hears you (empty channel).

22:09 | System | Ashley O'Sullivan does not appear to be in range of castle scanners.

/message pwnz3r Rasputin's loose. He bypassed security without setting off alarms. Start a parallelization trace.

/message Pancake_High_Admiral For ****'s sake, Eugene!

/message wildfireconspirator Take a team to the west gardens, second level. Pancake may be in some distress.

22:12 | Incoming PM from wildfireconspirator | On it!

22:18 | Empress_Of_Silence | Computer, has there been any change in any of my recent queries?

22:19 | System | Query in progress.

22:19 | System | No.

22:21 | Empress_Of_Silence | Computer, scan Ashley O'Sullivan's cell.

22:21 | System | Ashley O'Sullivan's cell is currently unoccupied. There do not appear to be any other nearby life signs.

/message yellowconspirator Take a team to Rasputin's cell. Something weird's going on. Stay alert for psychic attack.

22:23 | Incoming PM from yellowconspirator | Sir yes sir!

22:27 | System | Weapons fire detected in the western gardens, second storey! Analysis in progress.

22:27 | System | Combatants appear to be four security conspirators and one security conspirator. Weapons appear to be standard security sidearms, for both sides.

22:29 | Incoming PM from wildfireconspirator | Sir, we've just engaged one of the prison guards. She wounded two of my soldiers before spontaneously becoming unconscious. Panak is also here, also unconscious.

/message reply Ivanova. But why didn't she just kill him?

22:30 | Incoming PM from wildfireconspirator | And set off every damn alarm in the complex?

22:30 | System | Weapons fire detected in the castle dungeons, cell block A! Analysis in progress.

/message reply ****, she's breaking out!

22:30 | System | Combatants appear to be two security conspirators and one security conspirator. Weapons appear to be standard security sidearms, for both sides.

22:30 | System | One fewer life sign is now present near Viktoria Ivanova's cell.

22:31 | System | One fewer life sign is now present near Viktoria Ivanova's cell.

22:31 | Incoming PM from yellowconspirator | I've reached Rasputin's cell. No one's here... No sign of a fight. The door's wide open.

/message reply Ivanova's active. She probably lured them away.

22:31 | Incoming PM from yellowconspirator | There's a journal on his bedside table. Should we investigate?

22:32 | Incoming PM from yellowconspirator | Ivanova as in spooky brain lady? I thought she was neutralized!

/message reply Apparently not. Have your team seal themselves inside the cell. I don't want her turning you into reinforcements. Check out the book while you're at it.

/message wildfireconspirator What's Eugene's status?

22:24 | Incoming PM from wildfireconspirator | The emperor is stable. We're taking him and the other conspirator to medbay.

/message reply Be careful, Wildfire. If anyone starts acting odd, restrain them immediately. She could be any of you.

22:25 | Incoming PM from wildfireconspirator | Wilco.

22:26 | Incoming PM from yellowconspirator | This is weird. The book... is a chat log.

/message reply What?

22:27 | Incoming PM from yellowconspirator | I mean... It's all handwritten, but the handwriting changes periodically. It's... it's a conversation.

22:27 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | uhm

/message yellowconspirator Noted. We'll make sense of that once this current crisis is resolved.

/message pwnz3r Yes?

22:28 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | i found a time line where we stop the breakout

22:28 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | the other rasputin was... in the server room

22:29 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | he killed himself b4 the alternate conspirators could interrogate him

22:30 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | but my other self thinks he was doing somethng with the scanner

22:30 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | some kind of security vulnerability that he somehow knew about

22:31 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | he set off a really nasty fork bomb too, locked out the terminal

22:31 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | so the other me has no idea what he was doing

22:32 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | and wont until they get his terminal back online

22:33 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | if "our" rasputin knows the systems as well as that one... ****

22:34 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | i have no idea HOW he would

22:34 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | and i cant predict what the **** he's done to our systems in THIS timeline

22:35 | Incoming PM from pwnz3r | this... this is bad

18:24 | Sidhe_Trickster | It's about time we did something. What did you have in mind?

18:25 | TA_DAIMONIA | I have an operative who needs extraction, C-Day's coming up, and Pancake's got a few too many research labs for my liking. You in?

18:25 | Sidhe_Trickster | Hell yeah.

Xenocartographer (Official Note): So, I've been watching a Mass Effect LP recently. Good thing, too, cos Rasputin's last name was originally gonna be...
...
...Williams.

Now there's a bit of speculation that wouldn't have gone anywhere. In other news, this "System" is a much weaker AI than the one helping pwnz3!Theo, and if you're taking this as a sign that they're different, uhm, "people", you'd be correct.
Seabiscuit: Ohohoh, everyone teaming up to take down Pancake? HELL yeah this is gonna be epic!! Wow I can't wait to read that "chatlog"...


e: the idea of them talking to each other solely through that chatlog for years while being stuck in a dungeon is so, so sad :( edit delete reply
LightBringer: Ah, here's that update. Fun. edit delete reply
Steve the Mew hunter: This is interesting. edit delete reply
Temp Shoulder Angel: Ohhhh interesting. edit delete reply
Arbiter: Ooh, I can’t wait to see where this is going...
I think I know who Trickster is now, but it definitely isn’t Rasputin. It does remind me about something I’ve been wondering for a while, though. How exactly does Unichat’s colour-assignment algorithm work in-universe? More specifically, why does it sometimes give two iterations of the same person from different timelines the same colour (Anarchon and DrHorrible, silentconspirator and Empress_Of_Silence, OITHEOI and TA_DAIMONIA, etc) but other times assigns different colours (like with the pwnz-es and Sidhe_Trickster here)? edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: In-universe, they're chosen by the user. They're only assigned in the comments by necessity (ie. I can't find a gr8 way to not assign them that can be implemented on ComicFury). edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Out-of-universe, whether analogous characters have the same or different colors mostly depends on how obvious I want the relationship to be, and whether I expect them to interact. Theo and T_D have the same color because I wanted to make it clear that they're the "same" person. The pwnzes, by contrast, have different colors because their names make it clear, and logs involving them are clearer if they have different colors. And, of course, analogous people who will never interact might have different colors anyway if I don't want to give it away. edit delete reply
Arbiter: Oh, okay. Thanks! edit delete reply
