Yeah yeah okay you are getting right the fuck out of that zone. That's one of the most foreboding messages you've seen all morning (though not THE most).

you decide this is a good instance to pause, and think...

You're not certain there was really a point to commenting his text out there, but this terminal runs on bullshit and rainbows and at this point there might not be a point in thinking about it too hard.

You pull up the GAME MAP.

You quickly discover you can swap between three versions of the map. The first is a blank slate with nothing in it--

The second is how everything is supposed to be, at game start, and shows who each room belongs to. You also spot a bunch of Ns.
[Image: d8s4ubY.png]

The third and final image seems to be the current state of the GAME, including many missing players, many missing Ns, and a caged-up door holding R13.

You spot Y4, cripesalmighty, though the numbers representing each of the 8 other people might be slightly harder to suss out.

Its a safe guess the N's are needspensers.

Good, goo... Wait a minute.
13 Y, B, G, R. That's 52 players.
We need 53 to ascend.
Never mind that we have only the 9 to work with, there never was a 53rd player.
So even if the session was somehow reset, we would still come up short.

There's also finding that password.
Guessing finding that is going to involve some fiddling with the viewfinder.

Plus, getting the remaining players to calm down and... Do whatever it is we need them to do, is going to take a while. Never mind that we don't know what we need them to do yet.

...Oh, and I guess we kinda flubbed the whole "Be Discreet" part of our job. Oh well.

I guess that leaves the first thing to be figuring out is what we're gonna do next.

After some discussion with your fellow INPUT GIVERS, you decide the best course of action would be some clarification on the 'nickel'.

INPUT AGGREGATOR: you got it boss

As you get back, you realize the chat has filled up heavily while you were THINKING. You make some posts anyhow.

tiptopGipgop: There’s a G4 terminal, a Y4 terminal, a B4 terminal, a R4 terminal…

cripesalmighty: And the other ones mnmusrtt’ve given orders to have everone kill each other
cripesalmighty: But Nic and
cripesalmighty: and Y4
cripesalmighty: Me and Nicopter didn’t give ANY orders so WE weren’t attacking anyone.

YUPPERS: an EXPLANATION for the PSYCHOPATHY?
tiptopGipgop: ...That means there’s a way to fix Tars Mossburg.

1234567890: the size of a nickel
cripesalmighty: But I’m pretty sure that was always just some kinda weird metaphor that the heroes made since how could you possibly fit people inside of a nickel??
cripesalmighty: ...But you could probably fit lots of data on a nickel.
cripesalmighty: Y’know, code.
cripesalmighty: Wow cripes I guess that wasn’t a goddamn metaphor we’re all in a real nickel like what you pay for candy with!

Your username is cripesalmighty.

You are a CARAPACIAN, and previous resident of DERSE. You were part of a GAME which FAILED, and you were created by a huge array of time shenanigans that ultimately imply each other in a TEMPORAL CIRCLEJERK. You believe that your knowledge of these things gives you a distinct advantage over the thousands of CARAPACIANS unaware of such things, whom are all now dead, as well as the near-infinite expanse of all CARAPACIANS in all UNIVERSE-CREATING GAMES, which statistically know an amount of things approximately equal to ‘jack shit’.

You hate knowing jack shit. Knowing jack shit is at the bottom of your priority list. Dancing around the words “CARAPACIAN” and “DERSE” to avoid feeling derivative is so rock-bottom on your priority list that it has gone through the goddamned floor.

Now, according to what you have been informed of over the last 9 months, you reside as a YELLOW-TEAM INHABITANT within a COMPOUND the size of a NICKEL, hurtling through the Void at near-light speed in an attempt to eventually reach a civilization more habitable than your now-destroyed home. However, this COMPOUND is made of ones and zeroes-- it is nothing but computer code! So, in addition to being a CARAPACIAN, previous resident of DERSE, you are also not real.

That’s fine! You have found much solace in STEPPING AWAY FROM YOUR COMPUTER AND STAYING STILL. Your friends often find other methods of distraction, such as MUSIC or GAMES or WRITING, but you have always found an especial comfort in the low hum of an empty room. And, with Crast Pactian gone to NEEDSPENSE some food, you have nobody at your door, nobody to type to, nobody to be confused with.

Your interests include THINGS THAT FEEL IRRELEVANT AT THIS MOMENT, but that you still enjoy indulging in from time to time. Those INTERESTS have items contained in your VAULT, so you will likely be reminded of them as you pull items from within that sullen infinite holding dimension.

You also have accidentally picked up a habit from your friend YUPPERS to STRATEGICALLY CAPITALIZE certain words. Goddamnit that is a really bad HABIT. It makes you look OCCASIONALLY SHOUTY.

While you are not ONLINE, you also possess a name. Not a silly username that you picked in a few seconds as soon as you WOKE UP here, but a real name, one they put on all the documents and that you wrote all official-like! As is courtesy, it is also what your 51 friends called you when speaking out loud.

What was it, again?

Spoiler: AUTHOR'S NOTE
Now that you are controlling two beings, you may preface your command with the name of each 'character' to choose where your command is being directed.

The INPUT AGGREGATOR does not care whatsoever what commands you feed into it. You are giving it inputs as YOURSELF, your REAL SELF, with all knowledge that you have as a real person, including this out-of-character author text, including things you're not supposed to see. There are no limits.

cripesalmighty, on the other hand, does not know everything! She just knows the stuff she knows, and therefore can not do omniscient special shit.

That's right.
[Image: j9QXkDt.png]

Geneviève Mâché, almost universally shortened to Gene Mâché, is your born name. The decidedly fantastical and pleasant pronunciation was a wonder to your friends, as well as the heroes, once they first arrived. They took a particular liking to your kind that, apparently, no other group of heroes ever had.

But that was ages ago! Now you are fully in control of your LIFE. The question is what exactly you're going to do first, on this day in which so many things are changing, and so rapidly.

Crast Pactian: need dispensers rely very heavily on the need of the subject. in order to get groceries, i need to be hungry-- typically starving, for best results.
Zack: To the second, I'm pretty sure it was Nicopter buuut it could have been cripesalmighty since they seemed to have some idea about what Nicopter was up to.
Zack: As to why time is moving differently, I got no idea. Would have been nice if they included that in their notes, but as is I can only guess it’s something do with the machines processing info faster.
Levyyts: Reaches some sensibility there
Levyyts: Computers are very fast.
Levyyts: Should be settings available to run simulation at maximum speed.
Levyyts: Very quick, so very short time for those up above.
Zack: Lastly, I uh. Dunno how to post the whole note file. I could just type each line one after the other though.

EXA: do ieet
EXA: let us wa-aaatch you fail pless
YUPPERS: finally, BACK in my ROOM.
YUPPERS: you must TAKE A SCREENSHOT.
YUPPERS: hit the CHIRAL button and COMBINATE with your DOUBLE LIGHT VOWEL KEY, for FIVE SECONDS.
YUPPERS: then NAME the FILE.
YUPPERS: then TYPE ITS NAME HERE, with a simple “SEND” command beforehand.
tiptopGipgop: Yuppers has sent us hundreds of files, so it is basically his special talent.
tiptopGipgop: I mean, we’re all decent with terminals and need dispensers, but he’s sort of a wizard for getting extremely clunky systems to work in his favor.

Crast Pactian: oh dear

Oh my god it all comes to you at once.
[Image: KpZqtHj.gif]

YOU ARE A LINE OF COMPUTER CODE WITH IMPLANTED MEMORIES AND AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA--

You hear knocking at your door. It's a familiar voice, who speaks somewhat timidly, but stops your line of thought for a second.
...and, in a moment, you remember something particular about CARAPACIANS. To an outside viewer, their spoken conversations cannot be transcripted! However, in addition to your current circumstances and entire existence being complete bullhock, you also think that this dumb rule is stupid bullhock, and proceed to get your conversation transcribed anyway.

The voice calls in quietly, "Gene?" It's the THIN, WIRY CARAPACIAN by the username of "1234567890", who lives down the hall. "Gene, are-- you-- um. Are you okay in there? Is it good screams?"

You respond with more shouting. "No, it is not good screams! These are terrible screams because EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE!"

But he continues pestering you. "Do you wanna, um-- we can talk about it, uh... we can even talk through the door, if you wanna--"

"NOT PARTICULARLY!" you retort. "I genuinely appreciate your effort but I am in a rut right now and you know that a watched boiler can't bloom into a vinegar that bees enjoy, uh... uhm... er..."

You're searching for a name for this guy.

You're not going to have INPUTS for him yet, but you figure while you're in the neighborhood, you might as well figure out a better title than "1234567890".

You recall his name at last, after a few words float by your head, which is admittedly in the clouds right now.

That's Oats Carnation, Ph.D., master of all the knick-knacks.
[Image: dAX18m2.png]

Wow you actually got it. He gives you the customary THUMBS UP even though he can't see you through the door. It's just what you do.

Of course, on Derse there are no COLLEGES, so his PhD was sourced from another friend. Still, Oats certainly earned it. He was so goddamn good with those knick-knacks that the government gave him an incredibly menial job tracking down things that accountants and other various work-types had lost.

Amidst his extremely grueling hours crawling under desks and maneuvering Dersite rooftops to search for erasers and pencils, it's said that he managed to build contraption after contraption out of those little knick-knacks.

You already know all that, so you aren't sure why you went through it all in your head again, but you wanted to be sure you were in the clear before saying his name out loud. Getting names wrong is a bad move.
[Image: qveaE92.png]

"...Oats!!"

"Yes," he starts, "I know the one about the bees and vinegar and blooming and boilers, um. I guess it just sounds really bad, and I-I know this is a big bomb shell that we got dropped on us, but--"

You don't really wanna hear it. You kick the block you're sitting on, again, and state as firmly as you can muster, "Oats, please just give me some time to myself."

Oats lets out a weak sigh, says, "Okay," and slinks off audibly.

Back to peace and quiet and maybe screaming.

You open up your CABINET.
[Image: 3jISye5.png]

Within is your PERSONAL PLAYING CARD, your EARPIECE for chatting on the go, and your VAULT, which is a pocket dimension which requires on password inputs. Just about all your possessions are in here, and if you want something, you just input the appropriate password, which really could be anything.

You input 'LOVEBUG'.

...Sometimes you just don't wanna talk about it.

You head to the DOCUMENT file, and try the thing. Oh boy do you try it.

It is difficult because you do not have hands.

INPUT AGGREGATOR: here bud lemme just wire ur inputs in edge-wise

INPUT AGGREGATOR: boom

You send the files the way of the CHATLOG, or the ORDERLOG, or whichever whatever the hell it is at this point.

Hunk Chudfest: in dinka want somebodyy ot be with mee instaed fo beingg alone :((
tiptopGipgop: I’m psychologically on a ‘second wind’.
tiptopGipgop: Right now, I’m more concerned with fully understanding what’s going on, and what we need to do to not be doomed.

Crast Pactian: those are good concerns.
Zack: Pressing Some Buttons?
Zack: Using My Very Real Hands?
Zack: I Sure Do Have Those.
YUPPERS: my sincere APOLOGIES, RIDDLE VERSION of ZACK
Zack: To Clarify Things
Zack: While I'm Being Facetious
Zack: I'm Still Trying It
tiptopGipgop: Good luck, Zack.
tiptopGipgop: Please don’t disappear for twenty minutes like last time.

EXA: i’m thinkinating….
EXA: maybeee
EXA: we Need Spsne…
EXA: something to forgetta boutt all of this
Crast Pactian: that would be terrible.
Crast Pactian: as… emotional as this revelation has been, i am glad we at least now know to stop playing our respective games.
YUPPERS: AT LEAST WE’RE MORAL NOW.
YUPPERS: yuppers.
YUPPERS: a PERFECT STORM of EVENTS which have led to our INHABITANCY being INCOMPATIBLE with the art of GAME PLAYING
YUPPERS: while EXEMPTING US from the MORAL PUNISHMENT of having PLAYED IT FOR MONTHS.
tiptopGipgop: It makes me sick, but you’re right, I don’t think we’re… especially responsible.
tiptopGipgop: It was just so damn fun to play that game.
tiptopGipgop: Augh.

YUPPERS: this is incredibly ODD.
YUPPERS: BOTH of them.
Levyyts: Still following initial theories
Levyyts: Nothing surprising
Levyyts: Explanation from Zack relatively satisfying as is
tiptopGipgop: What does ‘ascend’ mean?
tiptopGipgop: Getting to the level above us?
tiptopGipgop: How in the world do we get 53 people? And what’s so special about an INPUT AGGREGATOR, that… I mean, what does ‘getting inputs from another dimension’ even mean?
YUPPERS: more damned DIMENSIONALITY.

EXA: wow neeat :;/
Levyyts: If we may ascend to the next level
Levyyts: And expand number of people.
Levyyts: Games below us may be able to ascend to us
Levyyts: Giving us 53+

After that kinda huge update, you regain INPUT.
