"I do... but it's very hard to explain."

He figures out how to get a videocall through the hacked computers. It's mostly showing his face and shoulders, the wings might not be immediately recognizable as such.

"She is stable. There is something that I might need to do to wake her up, which is also hard to explain."

He searches through the database for the best route to where the dreamshaper and starts moving.

The entrance to the prison- an elevator shaft which appears to have been forced up through the floor of a factory, breaking some of the machinery in the process- is fairly nearby. Felix's robots, however, don't currently have control over the elevator beyond being able to turn it on or off, so Thunder will need to go through the pocket dimension for most of the way.

At least it's better suited for flight. He keeps up the call. "I am on my way. Is everyone else in there alright?"

Permalink

"We're all three days into conversion, but other than that yes."

Permalink

"Yes. We will figure out a way to stop that and maybe reverse it."

Permalink

So he's not Ekina and he doesn't actually know how conversion works. She has options. She doesn't have options which aren't terrible. It's still a relief.

"Reversal's thermodynamically impossible. Stopping partway through could be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing."

Permalink

He decides not to do say something like "I laugh at the face of thermodynamics!" but he wants to.

"Do you think there is someone in the station that knows how to stop safely?"

Permalink

"I. Think the safest way is to disconnect the canulas, then cut off all the control signals with programmed cloth, and then inject lamotricyte to the cartoid as quickly as possible after that. So you want to position the syringe before you start. The Kyatji Mote army robots had a protocol for it but I don't know if there are any still intact."

Permalink

"Lack of material objects is not a constraint."

How long until he reaches them? He would rather be implausible in person.

Permalink

Only a few more minutes.

Permalink

He... he really needs a name... he will messaage Felix about this.

"How many of you are in there? Do you have people elsewhere in the station you want to contact?"

Permalink

"You heard what he asked?"

faint voices from offscreen

"Yeah, Lidje and Solitse want to talk to their brothers and Tadje and Netatne want to talk to their parents."

another voice

"Also Tadje wants to tell to whoever's in charge of the Ekina forces here she hopes he knows how much conversion sucks.

And here he is.

"six of us here, over five million in the ship."

Permalink

"Who are you and what is going on?"

Permalink

"Just a second."

He opens the portal and walks through it.

There is no way to disguise his wings, so he doesn't. They are mostly red-orange, but there are streaks of blue and purple through them. "Hi, I don't have a first name yet, but my surname is Dalkaila."

Permalink

"Solitse Teshe. What is going on?"

Permalink

"Man, long story short: an artifact somehow ended here alongside another individual. Said artifact caused her to fall asleep like that. Her consciousness is currently being projected into another place, a real place, which the artifact created. Said place is based on her personality and to rescue her I would need to take the avatar hosting her consciousness out. At that point she will wake up normally."

Permalink

"Can you put us in contact with her?"

Permalink

"Maybe? I am going to open a portal there to rescue her. The problem here is that the place might be dangerous."

Permalink

"You don't think your robots can pull off the rescue on their own, then?"

Permalink

"Oh, that's a great idea. Would she follow them?"

Permalink

Mokete pauses to consider this.

"If they're leading her out of immediate danger I think she will. Otherwise it might depend how obedient conversion's gotten her so far."

Permalink

He flinches. "Would help if you talked through the robots?"

Permalink

"If I can talk to her live definitely. Even a recording will help."

Permalink

He nods. He request that from Felix. "It should take a few minutes to set it up. Do you have any questions?"

Permalink

"I'm not sure where to start. Where did you come from and what do you want?"
