(Wait is there a guy Connie near goth Connie here ? I get it fits with the all the possibl universe' theme were having but somewhat undermines a bit the 'branch from the same tree' argument going on. Same with lil Conie in the first row seat or old Connie.)

>Guilt-tripping us into accepting the Hivemind? Really? You know what maybe he DESERVED it. Hell, what if it was him? People hurt people all the time. You've seen it. Hurting people doesn't make you special. You know what? Actually, you have changed, Miss Super-Ego-Tentacle-Bitch. Yeah, so what if we hurt people? We've done a lot since we entered that bloody waterworks. We SAVED that French guy. We didn't let him fall. We didn't let him die, even after we lashed out like you clearly want us to feel sorry about. Look all all these other Connies. None of them decided to go all goo-tentacle. None of them needed to surrender their existence. In fact, maybe we need to all decide what to do, as a collective self?

What do you think we should do, Connies?

(I think you misunderstand, the superego is trying to mae Conie into move past the guilt of the fact she dumped her boyfriend and then let this sort of rule her life nd become the angry self concious emtionally unstable social awkwadnes that we know and love because it's that very feeling the hivemind is using againt her to crush her patry resistance againt it taking over her body.)

Considering things seem to have gotten a bit confusing, it might not hurt for somebody to do a bit of re-capping, or at least prepare a pseudo-summary of the current situation...

Hey, you know, I think something just clicked for me.

The times CC’s had brief flashes of the world around her were all at moments when her individuality and emotions pushed at the situation in a way the Hivemind didn’t expect.

The situation with the motorcycle crash, for example, broke the romantic, lovey-dovey situation with LL that the Hivemind was trying to enforce for long enough to get a flash of consciousness.

Then, there was the situation with the crying girl at the club. This was when the Hivemind’s initial plan really started going off the rails: It actually lost control of the situation when it drank the drink cool-CC brought over (To the point of letting Connie express lucidity where she destroyed the whole city and started learning how she could make things in her own mindscape!)

And then there was the interactions of ID and Ego vs. the Hivemind. Which, while it didn’t go the way we wanted, revealed a key detail: The Hivemind wants processing power and understanding of the human condition, not emotions and feelings and the mushy stuff.

It’s had this much trouble with one Connie already. What happens if it had to deal with every Connie along every timeline?

Suggestions:

>Connie: Accept.

>Connie: With this added knowledge of what your past self did when she could see every one of her timelines, cast off the shackles of society-enforced identity and become the nietzschean All-Connie.

or alternately:

>Connie: Embrace the Con-Head and host ConnieCon, the greatest amagalamation of different expressions of Connie that there ever was, is, and will be, with different panels, games, DDR (For some reason) and so much exploration of feelings that a logical entity created to consume may be overwhelmed and drowned out by it.

I'm kind of scared of the version of Connie that wears Slick's helmet and wields the Flush's knife, cause I can really see some of the readers suggesting CC to go full psycho and wear/wield the trophies of the blue boys she killed.

...Yeah, this must be the part where you just have to believe in yourself and find some kind of inner power that will help you save the day, right?

You just don't care any more. You willingly let yourself fall behind in this stupid race called life. They're all gone. They're not coming back.

Let's get on with it. Whatever it is you're supposed to be doing. Bah.



[Image: 2768.png]

You realize the power of your LEVEL ZERO EMOTECH: ACCEPTANCE.

You don't have to feel good about it. The point is that what happened, happened. It's time to move on. Time to move forwards. After all, the only way for anyone to follow their dreams, is to start!

Thanks to this EMOTECH, you will have no problems integrating yourself into the hivemind's stream of consciousness.

Huh.
So i guess when the hivemind put Connie in her worst memory, it was actually trying to (in a twisted, purely selfish way) help her get over it. It makes sense that a hivemind can't integrate with somebody with lots of internal conflict, since the whole definition of a hivemind is multiple minds acting as one.
...and that's basically outright stated on this page https://mspfa.com/?s=43&p=1057
