The End of the Chase

[After several enlightening mishaps and meeting several well-intentioned aliens, the clues from the scavenger hunt have led both teams to the pool on the west side of the building. There are several other aliens milling about, staring up at the windows to try and find the green one.

The last clue has been received. It's time to regroup, find where to go next, and confront the mastermind of this... network-sponsored scavenger hunt.]

Actually, can you give us just a moment...

[He lowers his voice and speaks to the others so hopefully Jaycee can't hear.]

Well, is it worth it to keep trying to get the reward? Shall we tell him?

[Xander doesn't sound too sure about this: it would break this poor guys heart]

[Whispers back,] We - we do need the money. And the others have every right to a message, don't they? Not to mention...be able to see what these guys are up to next...

That means, if he is unwilling to work with us... we may have to get rough with him. We should all agree on that or not before we even start.

We don't hurt him.

[He's whispering, but his tone makes it pretty clear he's not going to budge easily on this.]

We're better than that. Whatever we decide, I can convince him.

[personal profile] kingshaming 2017-04-30 10:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Very well. I'll leave it to you then.
stitch_in_time: (dammit)

[personal profile] stitch_in_time 2017-04-30 10:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you.

[Don't go down the stabby road here, Xander. That goes bad places, like terrible reality TV.]

So are we telling him the truth, or are we spinning this as method acting gone horribly wrong?

cyan_maid: (Unsure...)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-30 10:16 pm (UTC)(link)
No. No - we can't go that far. It's not his fault he doesn't know.

[He sighs]

I know, and we don't want to resort to cruelty. But there may be a time where we have no choice.

[his tone is likely familiar to her: it's very similar to how he spoke in Bolton's room]
cyan_maid: (You are EMBARRASSING me!)

[personal profile] cyan_maid 2017-04-30 10:23 pm (UTC)(link)
[It only straightens her back and makes her dig her heels in.]

Now isn't that time! He got roped into this without any proper way of knowing what's really going on - nor has he been enlightened by the higher ups! It would only make it worse for everyone if we did anything.

We need the money to keep looking.
kingshaming: (32)

[personal profile] kingshaming 2017-04-30 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Indeed... we are largely out of things to pawn...
refusedtoleave: (Don't look)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-04-30 10:02 pm (UTC)(link)
And we need to send something through to the others.

They kept talking about us being cosplayers earlier. Do you think he tell people were those if someone asked who the winners were?
kingshaming: (46)

[personal profile] kingshaming 2017-04-30 10:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Hopefully, if we can convince him to do so.

[personal profile] stitch_in_time 2017-04-30 09:57 pm (UTC)(link)
It'd put him in danger too.

[More or less danger than they're in, who knows. Jaycee presumably has the basic rights of any given person actually native to this universe, but that also means the studio knows where he lives, more or less.]

But we need to keep the ship fueled somehow. Can't exactly park it over a spacetime rift and let it soak in the energy.

[Yet.]
curdle: (Default)

[personal profile] curdle 2017-04-30 10:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Will he believe us if we say this too is part of the act?

[ She doesn't really think so; they've all said so many different things. ]

That they film us still, in secret?

[personal profile] kingshaming 2017-04-30 10:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Then he'd start a stink when it isn't shown later I'm sure. Which may not be our problem by that point.

[personal profile] curdle 2017-04-30 10:13 pm (UTC)(link)
I care not if it comes after we quit this place.

And if he speaks of it, mayhaps others will see the truth of it too.
kingshaming: (42)

[personal profile] kingshaming 2017-04-30 10:15 pm (UTC)(link)
True. If we can disrupt their fanbase they would have no reason to continue this farce.
refusedtoleave: (What was that?)

[personal profile] refusedtoleave 2017-04-30 10:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I've already told him that we haven't been paid.
stitch_in_time: (Default)

[personal profile] stitch_in_time 2017-04-30 10:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay then.

[Since it looks like they have something of a consensus, the Doctor steps back towards Jaycee, giving the others one last look.]

Jaycee. I can call you that, yeah? That's not just a screenname or something? You're a pretty big fan of the show- I mean obviously, or they wouldn't have asked you to host this little shindig- but let me ask you something. All the promotion they've done, all the bonus content and home releases, have they ever shown any backstage stuff? Bad takes, video diaries, commentaries, that kind of thing.
stitch_in_time: (dammit)

[personal profile] stitch_in_time 2017-04-30 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
[Quick look over at Jamie for entirely different reasons.]

Yeah, no. Don't- don't do that.

[He clears his throat.]

We've already told you some of it. They didn't pay us for any of that, and we can't contact the others. And we're not affiliated with InterGal7.

When you asked if you were being punked by the studio, you were right, just a bit off in terms of scale. And I'm sorry to have to tell you this, believe me. But the whole setup about the station being some kind of reality TV, that wasn't just a conceit. The reason all the 'acting' was so convincing is that it wasn't. InterGal7's been lyin' to you and every other fan since day one.

[personal profile] stitch_in_time 2017-04-30 11:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, virtual reality's funny like that. But that doesn't mean we didn't believe it was real at the time. Everyone who committed murder believed they were doing the real thing.

[He grimaces, recalling the unedited "bonus footage".]

So did the victims. Us wakin' up on the Temerity- they broadcast that, yeah? They were still recording- that was the first confirmation we had that the others were still alive. We'd suspected, sure-

[Quick nod over at Togami, yes, he remembers it was your theory first.]

-but honestly til then it felt more like a false hope than anything. And that bonus content, the web episodes, that's another simulation. Only this time everyone's trapped there, and we don't know where they're really being held, their physical bodies. Hell, we haven't even been able to get any updates on 'em since they broke into that lighthouse.
