January Update: Overdue Conversations

C'mon, Lycus... You can do this. You've got to do this. It's been nearly a week! I've had all the components assembled for days now, everything is plugged in and ready - I just have to hit one b-button. Just... just p-press it, and...

ARGH! Of all the stuff that I've done in the p-past, why is this the thing that's so hard to do?! E-even thinking about it m-makes me feel sick.

But with everything that's been going on... I d-don't have a choice. What was the phrase that Marcus used yesterday? A pirate on a sinking ship i-is never going to swim to shore if, if they don't first jump in the water...

So... time to jump in, I guess. H..here goes nothing.

Pressing button and... initializing Scrying broadcast to the Cosmic Solarium. Solarium, this is Lycus Artois, Ambassador from Earth, requesting c-clearance to talk to... t-to...

...to Elliot Grant.

...

Elliot? I, u-um, i-it's... uh, it's L-Lycus, and...

Listen, I know w-we haven't really talked at all s-since... since our c-conversation in the Core got kinda, u-um, intense. But... w-we don't have to revisit that argument or anything, that's n-not why I...

Never mind. There's m-more important stuff to focus on! I d-don't want to bother you, but I needed to s-send you some of these energy readings that I've been picking up from the Tatters near Hope, because... P-please, just... I really think you need to see this. It's... bad.

Goggles? This is, uh... unexpected. Didn't think I was going to get a transmission from you today, or, uh... ever, but...

Wait a minute, did you seriously upload fifty-seven separate files as attachments to this message?! Gee, sure, of course I'll just drop what I'm doing and take a look at a stack of spreadsheets big enough to have its own gravitational pull! Clearly I'm just lazing around up here like some Upper Crust snob, twiddling my thumbs, right? It's not like I've got anything better to do with my time than to check math for someone who -

Wait.

...What the-

WHAT THE FUCK?! Lycus, what have you been doing in there to trigger an energy spike this high? Which part of "stop experimenting on the Black Hole" was too complicated for your quadruple-scorched brain to understand?! Disrupting filamental resonance nodes like these could shred you apart in a second, you complete-

THIS WASN'T ME!

Argh! W-would you just - just listen for once, instead of immediately shouting at me AGAIN?! You m-might think that I'm just like you, but I don't have a death wish! I...

I did what you said. Okay?! After our f-fight, I shut down all of my experiments that were related to breaking down matter inside the Tatters, even after the Review Committee offered me more funding to pursue that research. Hypothesis and I even completely reconfigured all of my machinery so that its only function would be to passively record energy measurements. That's it!

B-but then a week ago, the same day that creepy Voice in the Mist vanished, there was this n-nightmarish surge in the energy levels coming from one specific area of the Tatters near Hope. M-my... My dad and his Kith almost got c-caught in it, and... I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't made it to them in time.

And now my d-data shows that it's starting to spread to other areas of our surrounding Tatters, too! I've already reached out to Lenta and some others to get advice, but...

Elliot, n-nobody knows as much about the Tatters as you do. If we're going to figure out how to keep people safe from this, we need you to send us your data, and... look, the two of us d-don't ever need to be f-friends, or even get along, b-but... everyone that I care about is in danger right now. So I... I c-could really use your advice. As a mentor, and, even m-more than that...

As a collaborator.

I...

Look, Goggles... I can transmit some blueprints to you and skim over these data sets, but the last time I was working on a team of scientists? Let's just say that it wasn't exactly a stellar experience for anybody. You've, uh... You've got plenty of talent on your own. You'll figure out what's causing these readings to be so irregular, and...

Huh...

When did you say these were recorded? Look at this file, here. This type of energy surge is the kind of flare-up you'd normally only see after direct, targeted outside intervention with the filaments that break down reality at the atomic level, but the interference isn't just emanating from a singular central nexus - there are myriad initialization points, and they're exhibiting some kind of... interlocking chain reaction with each other.

If somebody were to enter any part of that area without understanding how to navigate the non-central filamental nodes... hell, at a rate of unweaving like this, they'd be lucky if they just got torn to pieces, without also starting a reaction big enough to engulf your whole town! That's...

Your whole Remnant... all of those naive, optimistic civilians... They'd just be... gone. Wiped right off the map.

...

...

...Fine.

I'm in.

Let's start running tests.

So, does this mean we shouldn't travel in the Tatters at all for the moment? Hmm...

Oh well, in any case, time to science! Something tells me we're going to need more space in the labs...

Whispers in here too and they were lab partners

Anyways, I believe in these boys, and in the meantime?? Gonna make sure all my weapons are ship shape, just in case.

awwww Elliot does care about us! I knew he had compassion somewhere in that tattered heart of his!

Lets go science boys! Defeat the tatters!!

Ah, finally, the Science Bros content I've been craving....

Two heads are better than one, and two dorky geniuses can get a lot done.
