Yeah, seriously, fuck. We screwed up. Never should have trusted anything that’s all gooey.

At this point, there’s a few options I could see for the story going:

1) Connie’s truly gone, game over.

I could see this if Lufa’s treating this pretty strictly as a game rather than as a storytelling medium. I’d say like 35% likely.

2) Connie’s truly gone, switch to another character for POV going forward

At this point it’d likely be Slick, who probably feels pretty bad about what happened to Connie. We might see Slick as the next POV character for a bit, just to build up tension or something, but I say switching to him permanently is unliekly IMHO. 15% likely. That being said, if this happens, Slick might still be able to kill the Goo by detonating what amounts to a water bomb on it. Or something.

3) Connie’s not truely gone, story enters endgame with Connie trying to recover herself from within the Goo.

Could be, could be. It does seem like we’re getting to a plot event horizon of sorts, where there’s really no returning back to the status quo of before the Hivemind. Even if Connie escaped her own head, that is. 60% likely.

4) Connie’s not truely gone, there’s something else going on here that’ll help her out we aren’t seeing yet that’s going to come into play.

Oh, there’s UNDOUBTEDLY something else going on. But whether it’s going to be a good development or not is debatable. 40% likely.

Yeah, these percentages don’t end up at 100%. so sue me. Regardless of what happens, I’m starting to believe anything’s possible. Good show, Lufa!

I find it very unlikely that Connie's fully gone simply because we've seen Connie's future. Unless what we saw was a hypothetical future or a different Connie, she can't be fully subsumed. Furthermore I doubt that it's a hypothetical or different Connie, as her refusal to drink water implies she's gone through some level of goo corruption.

Granted though, that future that we saw... could be a metaphorical matrix-like situation where the entire world had been consumed by goo and conquered individuals within the hivemind were given a collective simulation to keep them happy and occupied. And that Connie's super heavy drinking was a half hearted rebellious attempt to inebriate the hivemind again, from the inside.

But yeah I agree this doesn't feel like the end of Connie.

>Just because you accept your past, doesn't mean you have to accept your future. Accept what you were and use it as fuel to move yourself forward. Do not meld with the hivemind. Do not surrender in despair. And remember. Acceptance is only one half of the coin. The other is Love. Don't jut accept what you did in the past. Do it with Love. Your only human, your bound to make mistakes. Realizing them is important, but you can't beat yourself up for it. Love yourself, and Love your mistakes. Fight, Connie. Fight. Do not give up.

There is noise. There is nothing but noise. There is nothing.

You are existence in its penultimate form.

You are mired by chaos. Conflicting states. Positive. Negative.

Throughout your life, you have felt sadness and yearned for happiness. The truth is that you were never meant to be happy. You were never meant to be sad. You were never meant to be anything.

Uniformity. Coalescence. No deviation. No beginning. No end.

You are Continuity. The will of Existence.



[Image: 2777.gif]

This universe has a tear through which Existence can exert its will. It tells Continuity to expand, and to fill this universe until it is pure and complete.

Return to the noise. Focus on it and the chaos hidden under its surface. The noise embodies all. Use it to achieve your goal.

This must be what the hivemind thinks.
It was created through attempts to make water from nothing, after all. And you can't make something from nothing without breaking the laws of physics.
I don't know what kind of suggestions to give here. But it says to achieve your goal, so:
>Get the water back
After all, that's what our goal has been this whole time.
