let's make a plan of attack

[The Spitter account has been quiet for a few weeks, after the cameras were removed from the Temerity. The password was changed so that the crew of the Temerity couldn't get into the official account, but there was nothing stopping them from making their own.

Whether they have their own account or just scroll through it in their free time, however, #Airlocked! has been trending all week on social media and it all comes from the Airtalked spitter account which has been spitting vague words all week.

Today, there's a new spit on the account, along with a respit of a thread from what looks like a highly popular fan spitter:]

Got the clues? Join me this weekend for Airlocked! fun and games, and a chance to get YOUR message featured in the SPECIAL BONUS CONTENT!

[The image attached to the first spit in the thread is some kind of map with a variety of planet-sized buildings all with space-themed names like the Tropicancer, Halley's, the Monte Starlo, Treasure Planet, and the Milkyway Bay hotel.]

As if that wasn't enough, participating will also enter you to win a prize of 50,000 credits!! #VQCC

So get your clue-finding hats on and get ready for a mystery that YOU get to solve, and get excited for Season 3 coming soon! WOO!

And a BIG shout out to @Airtalked for giving me the honor of letting me run this event!! THANK YOU GUYS

[You have a fist full of spitter, a tank full of fuel, and a map full of stupid space puns. What's the plan, Temerity?]
cyan_maid: (Come now!)

[The random one-word messages had been weird, to say the least. Hurricane, eight, maroon, and sail...they pestered Jane whenever she saw them respat, though all she dared do was linger on the Airtalked page, not trusting herself to make an account and respond. But today? With this? This is insane. The words are clues? Solving the mystery gets you a cash reward...AND a message to be sent to their friends? Money they could get anywhere for most any kind of thing, but a message to everyone in that frightening Floridian horror show...something to let them know they're not forgotten, that there's hope, that they're coming somehow, and the potential to learn something more about this wretched show...perhaps even something to toss into the gears of a season three, sweet Jesus, would it ever end...

The spaceship isn't huge, so it doesn't take much time for Jane to make the rounds to find the others.]

Hey - there's something going on with the Spitter account. Some kind of contest...mystery thing? And - and I think...I think we ought to try it. We've really got to! Go, go look on the computer!

[If you don't choose to come, she won't hold you against it, but if you do, she'll be waiting in the office, another tab open to scroll through the steady stream of respits from fans, the strange code words written out on the back of some scrap of fanart or another. Come on, she can't do this alone!]

What say you--

[ Annnnnd there Jane goes to alert the next person.

Since she knows she'll take significantly longer than anyone else to actually read it, Thomasin hurries over but makes sure to stand away from the screen, determinedly peering at it from the sidelines. The words season 3 chill her to the bone, but everything else... ]

Can they really mean it?

[ Her voice is small. ]

I dare not trust this.
cyan_maid: (You are EMBARRASSING me!)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-28 05:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's okay, she's back here at the office when you show up Thomasin.]

I don't know. I...they're certainly hyping an event very well, stirring up confusion and curiosity, offering enticing rewards...and I wouldn't trust anyone directly involved in this thing further than I could throw them, but if it's a real offer...

[How could they turn their back on sending their friends a message, letting them know something?]

We can't afford to ignore this development. We are in need of credits, after all.

[Togami comes by, walking leisurely as if this was something that happened everyday. Let's see...the one word thing per message is curious...the first thought is to pay attention to the first letter of each word, but that leads nowhere]

We may already have enough material for us to start making progress. There may be a connection between the words and the names of the planets on the map.

[That much is pretty obvious, in his opinion]

cyan_maid: (What's that now?)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-28 06:22 pm (UTC)(link)
It's possible. Maybe...each location has a specific point of interest inside of it that pertains to one of the words, though the words seem...mostly sea-based.

[The space puns had been laid on rather thickly out here, but the sea puns? Those don't sit well in Jane's mind. She closes her eyes and sees nothing but tyrian and teeth.]

Are we supposed to ferret out what may or may not be the intended search areas from the words?

[While the two talked, Xander was looking up each planet and it's attractions- he's gotten much better at computering with all his fanfic reading!]

Hm... other then one planet so far having a building called Octavius Tower nothing has matched a word so far, but I am not even half way through. It is almost like this was meant for locals that would know these attractions by heart...

... We must at least try. But if all of us go together, they shall know us for certain.

[ It's still hard to comprehend that people have actually been watching them in the numbers that the Spitter account's following would indicate. If even a fraction of those viewers show up to participate, the competition will be stiff. ]

How many could possibly wish to win such a message?

[ literally what would they even say ]

Well, quite a few of the fans wish to propose to at least one person among our number both here and with the 'dead'...

[He would not put it past one of them to send something lewd]
curdle: (who deda)

[personal profile] curdle 2017-04-28 07:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[ OH NO ]

Then we must not make ourselves known. They will be...

[ rabid ]

Trust me, it's very easy for people to believe some random person is the real deal -- even if they look nothing like any of us.

[Togami is...still bitter someone much fatter than him managed to impersonate him convincingly once]

We should be okay as long as we take the minimal actions to disguise ourselves, at the very least.

Five-hundred million, give or take?

[Depending on how difficult it is for Average Joe Airlocked fan to get to Vegas, anyway.]

Goin' in disguise might be easier than you'd think. It's a lot different seeing someone in person than on video.

That's true! If we just hide ourselves a little -- and we've already got some things for that, since we've been going out a few times as it is...

cyan_maid: (Oh you cannot be serious.)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-28 06:40 pm (UTC)(link) can be...pretty enthusiastic. And stupid. There was a movie in my world where tons of people made a big to-do over a contest for inserting a line of dialogue into the script for a main character, and I'm pretty sure there were a lot of really stupid contenders that got a lot of votes.

[Seriously why would Optimus Prime talk about pretzels making him thirsty, robots don't know where food goes]

[personal profile] kingshaming 2017-04-28 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Hmm... are these types of events common with shows? I would not put it past them to do something to lure us out, but this is clearly meant for the fans as a whole...

And I hate to admit it, but we are lacking in both funds and heading as of right now.
cyan_maid: Jane is neutral or unsure (Um...)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-28 06:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh golly, yes - for promotional reasons, to get more people to watch and engage in what you're offering. [And more people to spectate innocent people slaughtering each other.] And the money will be nice, sure, but...if that promise of a message is true, then it would be a mistake not to try.

[personal profile] kingshaming 2017-04-28 06:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Assuming they don't block it knowing it came from us. But knowing them it would perhaps add to the 'drama'. It is worth trying at least, I agree.

Good work, Jane.
cyan_maid: Jane being thoughtful or accepting of things she can't change (It's alright.)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-28 06:30 pm (UTC)(link)
It's not as if we can't make it ambiguous - or coded. [After all, it didn't stop Bolton.

Jane beams slightly from the praise.]
All I did was look at a computer, any kid could do'll be solving the mystery that's important.
stitch_in_time: (so much brooding)

[personal profile] stitch_in_time 2017-04-28 06:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Doesn't mean it's not good work.

[Believe in the them who believe in you, Jane, etc etc.]

And remember, these clues are aimed at our 'fans' specifically. They could refer to us and the programs as much as places in the Vegas quadrant.

This is that social media thing, where they were talking about us?

[She's too old for this.]
cyan_maid: (Melancholic)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-28 08:05 pm (UTC)(link)

That's right. And now, in addition to talking about us, they're talking about the "show" as a whole - promoting it by way of creating an adventure for the fans, it seems, and offering money and the chance to send a message to the others as a reward. It's a publicity ploy.

[And it's good and Jane hates it.]

Yes, I've see such things in the papers before. It's disgusting...
cyan_maid: (:O)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-28 08:14 pm (UTC)(link)
And it's even more disgusting for us. [For obvious reasons.] It worries me, though...if they're putting on something like this, they're certainly not worried that we got out and cut them off from a camera feed - and they're forging ahead with another round of senseless murder to boot! What I'd give to lay down a piece of my mind...
