I have good news and bad news. Bad news, the proxy was a strong little bugger and managed to injure both Vivi and I. Good news, we managed to restrain him in the wee hours of the morning and feed him the cure. He's vomiting copious amounts of slendergoop and isn't saying much, but once he's fully coherent we need to question him about the apartment and a few other things.
Vivi had a short conversation with him this morning. He seems a bit more off with the fairies than Kaylee was, but that may be just his personality talking as opposed to Slendy-influence.
V: So your name is Michael.
M: Yes. No. I hope so.
M: Collective do not have names.
V: Are you feeling alright? We're sorry about making you drink that stuff, hun, but it's for the best.
M: Sick. Hot. Ribs hurt. But better than before.
(pause in which he hacks up more goop)
V: Good. Do you want anything?
V: What about it?
M: Off. Do not want.
(insert me having quiet hysterics here.)
V: Okay. (pause while she removes mask) Anything else?
M: Water. And...
(Vivi leaves him under my care for about ten seconds while she fetches a glass of water. We free one of his arms so he can drink it but restrain it again immediately afterwards. He stares at a spot on the wall the entire time.)
V: What? Oh, the fairy lights? What about them?
V: Why not?
V: Can you tell us anything about the looped apartment?
M: *pupils dilate, starts struggling against bonds* Resisting, too happy, too familiar, cannot be stable...
V: What the hell?
M: Divide and conquer divide and conquer divide and conquer divide and conquer divide and conque divide and conquer divide and conquer divide and conquer divide and conquer...
(pauses to throw up again. He continues repeating this for about an hour before falling asleep.)
Yeah. He's said stuff a few times since then but it's all...rather strange. Usually about the lights, or "divide and conquer", or stuff about Compulsion. We're keeping a close eye on him. Hopefully he'll have full control of his faculties soon so we can find a way to get him back to his family.
Stay safe, everyone.
