Well, it's not precisely what you expected YOURSELF to look like, but it's an image at least! An image with stuff on it. Some kind of stuff.

You open the last remaining file in the DOCUMENTS directory, Nic_The_Worst.clg.

Spoiler: Doculog (Nic_The_Worst.clg)
Hi. This is Nic the Worst. I figure that’s what you’ll call me after I drop these big ol’ bombshells on your collective minds.

Me and Cripes kept your world alive even though everybody else stopped caring about you. They’re all gone now. It’s been a long time and I decided to resume your session after years and years of pause, after so long workin’ out this plan.

We’re about to try an’ leave. Well, she thinks that, I guess. When you get this document, Inhabitants, hopefully the INPUT AGGREGATOR activated and is givin’ you orders. Or, at least, suggestions-- guess it depends on what they choose to do.

Either way, listen to it, alright? It’s your only hope at this point. It’s everyone’s only hope. If me an’ Cripes die in vain, we’ll be stuck in this dimension for centuries, reliving the same mistakes and the same hell.

Escape.

Ascend.

Save us from all being erased.

- Nicopter

//DON’T FORGET TO SEND THIS BEFORE YOU LEAVE, NIC

You also proceed to the previously discovered CHAT to post about your findings.

But something is wrong! Unlike your home CHATLOG, this CHAT is basically dead. Nothing is being posted, and you wait a whole five minutes.

You hit the CHIRAL button again. This is getting easier, even though you don't think you have a real keyboard to hit!
[Image: Qk7Ox8K.png]

Goddamnit it's the go-to-menu button.

This is extraordinarily crummy.

At least this means that one of these options might lead you back to the chat somehow.

cripesalmighty: That’s how it is on green terminals anyway. My keyboard has two chirality toggles instead of a single button so I have to press them at the same time to go back to the viewfinder.
Zack: Keyboard?
Crast Pactian: whatever you are typing with.
Crast Pactian: if you do manage to make it into the viewfinder, you should report back by hitting chatlog immediately.
Crast Pactian: just as soon as you can.

cripesalmighty: It’s only been a couple minutes, just give him some time!
tiptopGipgop: We’ve actually asked about his terminal multiple times, so I hope he’s not going to leave us hanging for too long.
tiptopGipgop: It’s reasonably easy to ask who and where somebody is, and it seems like Zack has no intention of disclosing either one.
tiptopGipgop: Perhaps Levyyts is feeling the pressure and has dropped out.

cripesalmighty: Oh my god I’m going to flip my dip if you say it’s Lev one more time, TG.
cripesalmighty: There are just too many signs that it’s not! It feels ridiculous kinda to say but most people in here are VERY identifiable by chatting methods and Zack isn’t close to anyone else!
Crast Pactian: i think it is reasonable to continue assuming that zack is a well and true real person for today, at the very least.
Crast Pactian: it’s fun!
tiptopGipgop: Oh, I’ll keep playing along. That’s fine. I’m just trying to reason why he/she might be taking so long.
Hunk Chudfest: mbee gota ifute out goyougta type youir dfommands and that’s hard for hm

EXA: or… he’s ditched us all ready.
cripesalmighty: OK I will concede I took a long time on that screen to figure out how to type commands I guess.
YUPPERS: yuppers.
cripesalmighty: But exa you are COMPLETELY wrong!! He’s not going to just abandon us!
YUPPERS: there’s a distinct VOCAL RHYTHM in all TEXTMODAL GRIFTS
YUPPERS: which ZACK does not REMIND OF
YUPPERS: in fact, ZACK speaks with so many separate VOICES that a RANDOM WORD GENERATOR is not out of the question

1234567890: 8u7 90u 7h1nk h35 3v11?
YUPPERS: NEFARIOUS, at the least, for being such a SPECIAL BEING to enter our UNIVERSE.
tiptopGipgop: We’re hurtling through space in a contraption that was programmed wrong, correct? We are in the massive emptiness/fullness between game sessions.
tiptopGipgop: If we had windows, we would see the things outside. I believe we heard about their terrifying visages on more than one occasion?
tiptopGipgop: Especially from those of us with black carapace.

Crast Pactian: it still has only been a couple of minutes-- perfectly reasonable for somebody new to the interface to meet confusion, as hunk brought up.
Hunk Chudfest: tok mi 2 ghours :(
Crast Pactian: i am in doubt that zack left us and even more doubt that zack is one of the terrors outside.
Crast Pactian: whom we have not heard, seen or met in nine months.
YUPPERS: perhaps we have reached a DESTINATION.
YUPPERS: RAN SMACK DAB INTO A BUBBLE OF DREAMIFICATION, OR INTO A PLANET.

cripesalmighty: Zack, it’s goddamned simple, just hit the chat button to come back to us, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
cripesalmighty: WHY IS THIS SO HARD?!
Crast Pactian: zack is not stupid.
Crast Pactian: if he thought it important to hit the chat button so soon, he would have.
tiptopGipgop: I don’t think we know enough about Zack to determine whether or not he’s stupid.
Hunk Chudfest: hen tgot a wa yra witth a words i like
YUPPERS: STUPID is a relative term.
YUPPERS: and relative terms are STUPID.

cripesalmighty: Maybe he really did leave and doesn’t think we’re worth his time!!

Crast Pactian: cripes
Crast Pactian: please. step back from the computer a moment and take a breath.
Crast Pactian: i can get you one of my blankets if you’d like.
cripesalmighty: I don’t want any goddamn goddamn goddamn blankets, crast, I want Zack to not be gone JUST AFTER WE FOUND HIM.
YUPPERS: perhaps he simply DOES NOT LIKE TO SPEAK while you are ADMITTEDLY QUITE UPSET.
cripesalmighty: Admittedly quite upset or not quite admittedly upset, I don’t think he’d just leave me to freaking out!
Levyyts: Please calm down

Levyyts: No overturned stones or crime scenes.

Levyyts: Does not point to Nicoopter’s terminal

cripesalmighty: But every outcome sucks and I’m crying and it feels dumb to be crying but
cripesalmighty: He just seemed really nice, and it was the first person who could come in here without any judgement of me or anyone else, and I think we were alright to him, and I guess I just felt a connection for a second that was more real than stupid chat bullshit.
cripesalmighty: I’m sorry.

You are now back at your original home chatroom, the ORDERS MENU of the game currently running on your terminal. Your PAWNS and the opposing YELLOW TEAM PAWNS are currently screaming about your disappearance, but you're back now, with complete and utter control over your inputs.

Then, your narrator notices that Lordlyhour has updated their post, and lets the INPUT AGGREGATOR continue posting!

Zack: Also, Quick Query
Zack: Why Are You Using "Orders"
Zack: To Talk, Not The "Chat"?

Crast Pactian: we use the chat.
Crast Pactian: “ORDERS” is for giving orders to the pawns in the game your terminal is running.
Crast Pactian: the screen looks very much like the chat, but the units within follow those orders to the letter.
tiptopGipgop: Wait. You’re not using “Chat” to talk to us, are you.
Zack: Hence Taking So Long
Zack: I Was Flailing Like A Dork
Zack: In The Wrong Menu
tiptopGipgop: Well, that’s horrifying.
tiptopGipgop: That’s absolutely to the core horrifying.

An Inhabitant freaks the fuck out and struggles to type one-handed, which is a bad idea, considering her keyboard requires two inputs at once for almost every character.

tiptopGipgop: So you’re running a session of the game and giving us orders?
tiptopGipgop: But somehow you got compulsive orders off, so it just seems like you’re chatting with us?
tiptopGipgop: Is there any chance we’re NOT just lines of code, that maybe this is some abstraction of a network of real places, is there any chance?
tiptopGipgop: Please, Zack, if you’re not Levyyts, please make this make sense to me.
tiptopGipgop: If you are actually just Levyyts messing with me, I swear I will END YOU.

Crast Pactian: no threats, do not threaten
Crast Pactian: we must keep our wits together now
Levyyts: Cannot confirm for you
Levyyts: Identity of self is only self and nothing else

You head to the MAIN MENU with the CHIRAL button, and (accidentally?) select the VIEWFINDER option.

Then, you back on out, and head into the terminal's CHAT, to confront the Big Man On Campus.
[Image: WD40Mjm.png]

You type your first message and then begin typing more-- but something strange happens. More messages seem to be being posted by Nicopter. Maybe the real one, instead of you?

Nicopter: I think we need to have a talk.
Nicopter: Oh.
Nicopter: Hi. Mhm.
Nicopter: Y’must be the INPUT AGGREGATOR I plugged in.
Nicopter: Afore ya type any more, you gotta know somethin’
Nicopter: I’m dead in a few minutes.
Nicopter: Y’know, bleedin’ out, and all that.
Nicopter: If ya stay outta this chatroom, those few minutes are gonna last an eternity, inside that l’il terminal of mine.
Nicopter: But if ya stay out here chattin’, I’m gonna die.
Nicopter: Then eeeverything gets reset, IA.
Nicopter: Go read uh
Nicopter: Go’n read my notes at the bottom’f the main screen.
Nicopter: Kinda runnin’ outta energy here.
Nicopter: Sayonara.
Nicopter: Maybe once ya get somebody ASCENDED ya can help me and Cripes out.
Nicopter: ...eheh.
Nicopter: Probably not.
