tell Rosemary that Black Licorice told you to keep an eye on her and Lorence after she took Black Licorice's job as tour guide to Delilah, and was just concerned. Take a couple steps back too.

Inner thoughtsOh great, now I feel like a used car deal trying to make a sale with a gun to my head. Alright let's roll with it.

You could do that certainly. However, you would miss the opportunity that I am affording you. And plus, in the new concordat that is being put together, that would make you an enemy. How does the saying go, "don't shoot the messenger?"

Should you not, well then I'm sure you could make me look like a sponge with amount of holes you could fill me with. But I wonder... *looks around conspicuously at each of the guards individually* No, I'm sure you trust your men completely... At least, I hope so... A stray bullet "accidentally" shooting through and into you.. Well, I'm sure your men are loyal.
No. 1047717 ID: d87c35

inner thoughts: Lightbulb.

I'm sure none of your men have been acting irrationally... It only makes sense to have someone tailing me this whole time and watching my every move.

He wishes to cut out,
More than just your sadness.

Do not give him your trust.
He offers nothing in return.

Only oblivion.

You have a mission,
Pursue that,
Not happiness.

Yes, well as you know I have come here to offer you an invitation to the gathering I am putting together. However, there are a few offers I would like to make to you for your cooperation.

One, I don't just want you to be a part of the coalition, I want you to be a leader in it. While I do not agree with this it is what I, and the other members of the coalition have agreed upon. While we will all have equal voices in our decisions, you and you alone will have a special veto power. Should you decide against any action, you and you alone can call upon your veto if you can give a legitimate reason for it. Other terms can be negotiated upon

Two... *Looks around at the others* This part is best said simply and quietly gentlemen, as you know I have been relieved of all weapons, but I do not trust any of you enough with this information. *leans in close to Delilah and whispers*
I am wondering if you have heard of the new process that I am researching. I have begun to research how to give a person voices similar to Ana and Root. What this entails is binding someone with the Ash Tree, this is what I am looking to offer you, so you will truly no longer be in your brother's shadow. Understand that this is in of itself is a risk and we have not yet fully figured out how this may be done. But we are making progress at a faster rate than even I had hoped. The people whom we've grafted with parts of the ash tree are beginning to see visions of.. Other versions of themselves. This is what I am offering to you. An army of other consciousnesses that could very well lead you beyond our mortal coil, greater than any form of immortality.

They seek to stop you,
From your mission.

Your leader must know,
Must be told,
What you observed.

This is not your desire,
Refuse it.
Flee it.
Return what you have been given,
With violence,
If necessary.

You just said the vines are going through your mind and you won't be able to think clearly. Be careful, the vines probably DID go through your mind and you are having a hallucinating dream right now... Sucks that someone on your side is treating you this way, or trying to.

Maybe you should see Lady Teovola about Rosemary, Rosemary spoke with her earlier trying to convert her.
No. 1049167 ID: 5f4030

I have seen our side fall before. It never gets any easier. For all purposes, I consider this universe, these people my home. What I fear is seeing my home, fall to someone who doesn't deserve it. It's why I am afraid of any deals you have possibly made with the Blind Will, they are more like parasites. They will continue to take more and more from you until you think you have nothing left to give, and then they will take something you think you cannot live without, and you will not get out of it.

In all honesty, I know I cannot give you any satisfactory answer. This is why I purpose that we bind you to the Ash Tree if possible. Not only would you gain a newer, arguably better form of immortality, but also knowledge. I have seen many different versions of this world, and I still have yet to fully understand how Root and Ana's voices truly worked. If I had a partner, someone who not only knew of what was happening, but could shape destiny to fit it, then perhaps... Maybe I could finally rest.

Essentially, what I fear Delilah, is not knowing how to protect my home.

Try removing her mask while she is frozen, maybe you'll find out what is wrong with her by looking at her face and eyes

*Moves closer to the desk*

The way I see it, there are a couple different possibilities with power. Me however? I've always prefered the chameleon approach, unseen except when I want to be, eyes able to see almost anywhere I need to, and a surprising amount of reach. I can move anywhere undetected, as needed, and I can plan and plot in the shadows. It may not be as active. But it works for me.
No. 1050127 ID: fce62b

This idea is precious,
And will be graciously accepted.

Remove the mask.
Use your reaction,
As the gauge,
On whether you open a window,
Or not.

*now that there is confirmation that chameleon was chosen, Fortune can start the next part of the plan and cause a distraction so people nearby can focus on Rosemary's condition and so scarred can escape with Delilah*

You're going to need to take Rosemary to somebody to look at, with her being in this state, it might mean trouble, even if she tried to hurt you. she is highly respected around here apparently.

I'd say, bring her to security, Black Licorice. and Maya,

Oh hell! I was only able to kill Stitch after he was already weakened after a fight with Garm! And only then it was because we used explosive rounds to pierce the steel in his chest! We gotta get out of here. Toothpick, how wide is the ledge out the window? It won't be easy trying to shimmy across with her if I have to carry her. I'll look around here, maybe I can find some kind of rope or something I can use to tie her to us that way we can climb out of here.

Pandora help me look, all we have on us is we a belt and a tie and that might help but I'd like something more sturdy if we can.

*believes that Maya will be able to distract Stitch in some way for Scarred and Pandora to make their exit*
*wonders how Stitch would even know Ana is here, and debates whether or not he is here for her, or somebody or something else since the common knowledge is that Ana is supposed to be dead*

to calm her down, Tell Lady Teovola that you guys have a pretty strong maid, Maya, that you guys can ask to look into and maybe deal with whatever anyone outside might be afraid of, and that you two should probably go find Maya to protect Rosemary and yourselves with.

Neat hooks! That will help a lot, in fact it gives me an idea to make this easier as well. Gotta be fast about this though

*Unties shoes and reties them to Delilah as they are being buckled over Scarreds back*

Alright let's move...

*gets on the ledge a begins hand holding and shimmying across the ledge using the hooks for balance.*

Okay, when we get to the spot we need to climb up, we'll make our feet have some climbing spikes, it's why I took the shoes off. We'll do this like we are climbing up an ice wall, that will give us better leverage as we scale the wall.

Well, invite him in and close the door, can't have this big guy get distracted by anything like the sound of the wind outside. Afterwards, introduce yourself, and the voices in your radio (us), and let him know that your, our concerns about Lorence, then Give him your radio, we'll direct him to Lorence for you.

*figures that Stitch knows about Ana's voices as well, and might think the voices are not trustworthy because of them being associated with Ana, thinking we only want Lorence dead, and thus won't find his concerns about "Lorence" trustworthy, ignoring him and not hunting Lorence.*

Telepathy to fortune: Fucks sake, Fortune! You can’t think of a better way to stall? My job is already hard as it is trying to carry the brother fucking stoner without falling or being seen, just send in the Frankenstein bent on blood up here why don’t you!? The hell’s your problem? I thought you were gonna stall by getting that giant maid in the way?

Telepathy to Echo: Are you fucking serious right now!? I cannot afford to fight him off right and make it out with Delilah. You don’t know this thing like I do! Stitch is not something Pandora and I can fight off alone, I would something like 3 howitzers and an RPG if and try to ambush him before he had time to react! You are actively killing me here!

Inner thoughts: Ohhhh fuck… Echo? Fortune, I’m in trouble, if you can get Maya down there to deal with Stitch right now, that would be helpfull. Pandora? Don’t. Move. A muscle. We gonna ninja this. We are part of the wall. We are silent, we are a just a fly…
No. 1053326 ID: e51896

Right then, do you have any way of contacting Maya, the big scary maid? She can help protect you. if not, you might want to yell for her help. However, I think she's upstairs and might not be able to hear you from down here, we'll need to get closer up there

But first, you'll need to slow down Stitch so he doesn't follow you. Listen closely: see that vase next to you by the main entrance's door >>1040186 ? it has a bunch of squishy slimey round stuff in there that could potentially make Stitch slip over. I need you to tip that vase over to pour out the round stuff inside so you can make him slip up when he enters giving you a chance to run. If you need to break it, do that.

just... don't look too closely at the round stuff that comes out, okay?
No. 1053365 ID: fce62b

use your walkie, and "pretend" to be talking to one of the higher ups in the cult. tell them that Maya is here to save you from Stitch, like you're giving a progress report, Tricking her into thinking a superior needs her to save you might work.

Inner Thoughts: Better not. I do agree that she is a nihilist and definitely has a defeatist attitude. As much as I hate what she's become, I still hate Lorence more. Besides I still have a suspicion that Lorence will try to kill you the moment you stop becoming useful. Let's instead put the ball in her court, I want to see if she can make the hard decisions that comes with leadership. It's what I tried to teach her after all...

Toothpick, do you want me to go back in and try to get Rosaline? I can set Delilah down and you can pick her up while I try to extract her. Keep in mind, Maya has seen our face, if she's engaging Stitch I may have a small window of time in which to get Rosaline, but that in of itself is a risk. What are your orders?

Stitch is knocked out. No need to do anything drastic. We got things covered.

*to the person we're followkng*
Wait, actually I realize something, since you were attacked by Stitch, that might mean they could think you are untrustworthy, and an enemy to the cult. They very likely might not believe you if you tell them about Lorence. Instead, you probably need to show you are not an enemy by requesting help for Rosemary after she froze, for now, lead then to Rosemary try to take her somewhere safe in case Stitch wakes up and her frozen state gets in his way and he hurts her.

You had best be VERY sure about that one... And even if Stitch is out, Maya has seen us and could be on us now. If there is way you guys can extract Rosaline let us know how we could help.
