[ The message kicks in, starting out at a low buzz and growing louder in time. Faintly, two men are heard in the midst of a discussion, but their voices are hushed. As the sound grows louder, it becomes more apparent who's speaking. ]

I... I'm sure about this. There's just... We've been g- given this job, and the others areā€¦ I mean...

[ Another voice. To those who went on the town exploration, it should seem familiar. Very familiar. If you can imagine the stuttering, panicked man you met speaking with a firm tone, you'll be able to hazard the man's identity. ]

You were given this job? And just who gave it to you? Face it: you're clinging to a dream you've already tried and failed to achieve. It's a pathetic venture that wastes everyone's time.

W-well, yes; n- no. They... I've go to make sure they come in and out. If I... I leave this post, then they're stuck.

Then just leave it open. You're a smart guy, aren't you?[ Under the compliment is a biting threat. An accusation. ] Surely you could... put a foot in the door to prevent it from swinging closed, so to speak. Leave it open for them a crack. If they manage to wedge it open and make a break for freedom... well that would be no one's fault.

... As if accidental? [ his tone seems to consider it. ]

Completely by accident. [ Who knew someone could sound so assuring and so smug at the same time. ]

[ There's a long, contemplative silence. The feed is fading out again, but if you listen closely, it sounds as though a machine is powering up. Click. Click. Whiiirrrrr. ]

[ OOC: And thus officially starts the second event! There will be no responses coming from the Scientists but you are free to respond/mingle with one another in the post! ]
entreats: (what would it be?)

voice; open for mingling!

[ .. a scoff, but it isn't even annoyed or anything - at best you could call it indifferent. ]

Talk about cryptic.

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-06 03:57 pm (UTC)(link)
You think they wanted us to hear it? I mean, so we'd talk about it or something. [ or maybe he's just being overly speculative at this point ]
entreats: (and you could say just how you feel)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-07 01:25 pm (UTC)(link)
[ it's okay, they're always speculation buddies either way.. ]

There's no telling with them, right? I'd find either case very likely. They probably would've been a little more clear if it wasn't meant to be heard, or maybe they just speak in some stupid code language all the time.
dewebbed: (025)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-07 09:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Unless they're not talking about us. Then we could get totally thrown off!
entreats: (all this time for you)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-08 07:44 pm (UTC)(link)
What could they be talking about then when they mention a 'job'? The job of making sure the ice cream in the fridge doesn't melt?
dewebbed: (003)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-08 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Ha, yeah, that's true. But they could be doing other stuff we don't know about, right?
entreats: (and i will be dead)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-09 08:34 pm (UTC)(link)
As long as it doesn't involve them doing something that's either pretty annoying or pretty gruesome to us, they can do whatever they want. I don't particularly care.
dewebbed: (010)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-09 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Really? I'm kind of curious, myself.
entreats: (just a single drop of tear)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-10 01:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Why? Are you planning to write some sort of book about them once we get out of here?
dewebbed: (002)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-10 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Nah, nothing like that. I just want to know what they're up to!
entreats: (ooc; get out amakusa)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-11 01:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah, I see.. [ the way she says it practically already denotes something deadpan will follow, and yup-- ] You're aiming to become the next big scientist here.
dewebbed: (003)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-11 05:19 pm (UTC)(link)
What? Hey, I don't want to be like them. I just want to know what they do in their spare time, I guess!
entreats: (all this time for you)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-11 08:04 pm (UTC)(link)
I can't say I'm even interested in something like that. Unless it could somehow help us get out of here, I guess.
dewebbed: (002)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-12 12:41 am (UTC)(link)
Hey, they can't be doing what all of us usually do, right? Maybe they have secret parties or something, haha!
entreats: (so you should just accept fabrications)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-12 07:10 pm (UTC)(link)
.. Ah, so that must be where Bern-chan found that party hat the other day.. [ not seriously, of course, but bern is at the center of every discedo mystery, obviously. ]
dewebbed: (025)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-12 08:43 pm (UTC)(link)
A party hat? Man, good thing it wasn't rigged or anything. You never know around here.
entreats: (that i tossed to the dark)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-13 01:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, you never know what kind of weird effects it could've had. It could maybe make her obsessed with partying or something like that.
dewebbed: (002)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-13 08:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Ha, you're implying she doesn't think her whole life's a party already! That's how she acts!
entreats: (the life you always should have had)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-13 09:39 pm (UTC)(link)
More like she loves ruining the party that was supposed to be my life, right?
dewebbed: (010)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-14 11:07 am (UTC)(link)
I don't know, she was pretty intent on ruining mine whenever you weren't around, too.
entreats: (just one thing for your birthday)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-14 10:03 pm (UTC)(link)
That must mean she likes you too, Jack. At this rate you can maybe even take her off my hands one day.

[ even though he technically did that when she left, since neither of them could've known she would come back here and all.. ]
dewebbed: (002)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-15 11:08 am (UTC)(link)
Oh man, once or twice is enough. I don't even know how you've managed to get by with her for so long!
entreats: (just one thing for your birthday)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-16 06:30 pm (UTC)(link)
It's since she's actually a demon feeding off my soul. I don't exactly have any choice.

[ how she can manage to always say this stuff with such a straight tone nobody knows. ]
dewebbed: (025)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-16 10:19 pm (UTC)(link)
You think we'll have to get holy water and slay her?
entreats: (i won't wander anymore)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-17 01:18 pm (UTC)(link)
That will have to be your task as the chosen one to fight against her. Like some sort of knight.
dewebbed: (002)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-17 02:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Then who're you? My ghost mentor or something?
entreats: (just a single drop of tear)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-17 03:28 pm (UTC)(link)
That works. Actually I've already died a long time ago, and so you're the only one who can still see me and talk to me.. what a sad fate.
dewebbed: (025)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-17 08:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Aw man, that's actually kind of sad. [ and he doesn't want to think of her dead ] Maybe you're more like a cool hologram. It'll be a sci-fi epic!
entreats: (see i was dead)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-18 08:17 am (UTC)(link)
So you're looking to beat Star Wars in popularity instead here, huh?
dewebbed: (002)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-18 03:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey, I bet most of the people here don't even know what Star Wars is. We can be their first one!
entreats: (you dig your own hole)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-18 06:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Educating people on the wonders of Star Wars.. we deliver such a great service to the community. It's practically an insult we haven't gotten medals for it yet.
dewebbed: (003)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-18 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey, we need medals for even sticking around this long. You've been here for what, two years now?
entreats: (fathers don't know all the rules)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-18 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
... Huh, it really is November by now, isn't it.. [ Strange. She had hardly even noticed it herself, but it meant another anniversary. ] That means it's exactly two years by now, yes. I arrived in November too.
dewebbed: (025)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-19 11:14 am (UTC)(link)
Jeez, we need to throw you a party or something. You didn't even get a really long break back home!
entreats: (you stood for all that's true and honest)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-20 01:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I have a sneaking suspicion that they won't let me go from this place unless they're letting everyone go back permanently.
dewebbed: (003)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-20 10:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe you're special or something. They need your magic powers, or whatever.
entreats: (we're going for a drive)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-21 03:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Then that's obviously what's keeping everything here, just the fact that I haven't bothered to get my chip taken out all this time.
dewebbed: (025)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-21 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Jeez, now that I think about it, neither have I. You know, a bunch of people back home said I could probably do some stuff if I tried!
entreats: (i wouldn't even mind)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-22 06:06 pm (UTC)(link)
.. Really? [ She seems pretty surprised for once, mostly since.. well, she always viewed Jack as more or less normal, especially how he's been lately compared to before.. ] What kind of things?
dewebbed: (003)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-23 06:39 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm not really sure. If I'd gotten my chip out while I was all crazy I might've been able to fly and see some other weird stuff, but now I've got no idea! Nothing like that though, I bet.
entreats: (and i will be dead)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-24 01:36 pm (UTC)(link)
You should try. Just for the sake of it.

[ Ange mostly hasn't taken out hers, since.. well, she figured summoning wouldn't work here either way and it's not like she has much more aside from that. Her gun works just fine to defend her here either way. ]
dewebbed: (004)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-24 03:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know what it'll do, though! I mean- not that it wouldn't be cool to find out, but I don't want to hurt anybody.
entreats: (just a single drop of tear)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-24 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
If you want, I could stay around you and keep you from doing something really bad. Not like I have much else to do. Or you could lock yourself up somewhere.
dewebbed: (010)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-24 10:19 pm (UTC)(link)
You sure? I mean, I don't want to do something crazy to you or whatever.
entreats: (i won't wander anymore)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-25 08:57 am (UTC)(link)
Believe me, I'm fairly sure you can't do anything worse than other stuff I've already had happening to me. [ burgers... ] And even if you could, I'd have to give you points for creativity.

[ yup, just talking about this casually, being hurt or killed, no big deal. ]
dewebbed: (003)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-25 06:04 pm (UTC)(link)
[ he does know her family's all dead back home, at least. just not the burger bit. but still ] I guess I should think about it. Never know when it could come in handy!
entreats: (i don't want to talk)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-25 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Who knows, you might have some handy magical can opener power. Could come in handy indeed.
dewebbed: (002)

[personal profile] dewebbed 2012-11-26 01:39 am (UTC)(link)
Ha, I think it'd be a little more crazy than that!
entreats: (wouldn't you love to know)

[personal profile] entreats 2012-11-26 06:16 pm (UTC)(link)
I guess we'll see eventually.
