She nods and points out a few alterations based on things she knows from reading people's minds, but... She thinks the plan's fairly solid.

Permalink

"Do you want to hear other approaches or just move forwards with this one?"

Permalink

"I want to hear a few more."

"Another path would be to get to this terminal here and hack into their systems, the easiest way to do that would be to construct a digital dreamscape interface in your finger and connect to a data port, then Addy and I could help. Hacking just with typing would probably take too long and the guards would come by before you were done. From there we could open this route, or you could let yourself be recaptured and escape later when their guard is down and they're not focused on you. A third option would be to refine your psychic abilities to function offensively and basically make the guards not see you. Based on some of what the research notes I think that should be possible but it might take a lot of practice."

"And a lot of time and possibly trying and failing to escape."

Permalink

"Yeah, maybe's aren't the best thing to plan on. In terms of more practical plans there's some maintenance tunnels here where you could probably hide for a long time without them finding you and they'd be easier to get to than all the way out but that's more of a delaying action."

Permalink

"And I'd rather just escape."

Permalink

"That makes sense, I'd want to be out of there as soon as possible too."

Permalink

"Yeah. So. Fighting my way out, I think."

Permalink

"Sounds good, I think we should probably review the routes here a couple more times then make a mock up of the facility without guards so you can practice the routes like that."

Permalink

"Works for me."

Permalink

Libby starts creating the mock up in the background and goes over the route a few more times highlighting details and alternatives. Eventually the mock up is ready and she opens a portal.

Permalink

And River reactivates her telepathy - and her sense of physical objects - and goes in.

Permalink

Libby follows, "This place is even creepier in person."

Permalink

"Yeah. It screams."

Permalink

Libby looks around a little to get her bearings. "Do you want me to lead the way the first time or just follow you? I feel like it's better to stay together."

Permalink

"I'll lead."

Permalink

"Sounds good."

Permalink

River's tense on the walk through the facility, but - it doesn't scream like the real one does.

The real one, she knows, will scream. The walls and the floors and all the instruments, with the memories of everything that's happened there.

Permalink

Libby follows along, occasionally speaking up to point out an alternate route or with a suggestion for subverting a particular lock or barrier.

Permalink

River's also pretty sure that in the real one she'll be able to see ways people've opened these locks before.

Permalink

Some of the locks include biometrics, Libby will focus on those if River mentions using how other people opened the locks.

Permalink

She does mention that, though says she can't test it here for some reason.

Permalink

"I wonder why, something to think about once you're safe I guess."

Permalink

"Yeah."
