experimentStuck: Act Three, Scene TwoOf all the scenarios you predicted and planned for, this was not one of them. In fact, you never even fathomed such an encounter. This Roxy person she was just like you, complete with furry ears and tail and paws to match. You couldn't believe it, another hybrid.
You Immediately begin assessing the girl in front of you. Aside from her animal features in full show, she was wearing tattered blue jeans with a short black skirt pulled over it. Her shirt is wrinkled and grey with splashes of pink and a rough black drawing of a cat's silhouette sitting off center on the left.
You quickly realize Roxy's show of dexterity is nothing but a rouse, for she sways unsteady on her feet. She takes a step and nearly stumbles, catching herself on a wall and then places one hand on her hip to play it off. Good God, the girl's intoxicated.
"You ain't seriously gonna eat that rotten ol' apple, are you?" She asks Jade.
Jade's still to dumbstruck to speak. Roxy turns to the rest of you.
ExperimentStuck: Act Three, Scene OneIt just didn't add up. You had him cornered in a room with only one exit. There was no place to run to, no place to hide. So how was it possible that he got away?
"How is it possible that you let him get away?" Vriska repeats your thoughts out loud.
"The hell if I know!" You growl back at her. "It doesn't make any sense! His scent trail just ends, his heat signature completely disappears, it's like he vanished out of thin air! Oooh, when I find that crustacean scented mutant-!"
"Crustacean scented mutant?"
"Yeah! He smelled like fish, and when I had him pinned down I could feel hard plates on his chest instead of skin. As farfetched as it sounds, I think he was some kind of hybrid like us, and-" A realization dawns on you, leaving you speechless. You suddenly understand everything.
"What?" Vriska asks when you trail off.
"He's just like her," you whisper. "He knows how to use the omnipotence too!"
"Whaaaat? But the canine hybrid is the only experiment to be perfected-"
ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene SixBlood pulsing, Fear escalating,
The silver needle coming down,
Pain inevitable, Body changing,
You're dying. You're-
You awake with a start; heart pounding, hair raised, and soaked in a cold sweat.
Who needs an alarm clock when your nightmares never fail to wake you up? For a second you can't comprehend where you are. These scents and surroundings aren't familiar. What's going on, where-?
Memories suddenly flood back to you. That's right; you aren't in the lab any more. You've fled that place, buried it in your past But it seems you're still stuck with the bad dreams.
You sit up, stretch, and then turn your attention to the window. The sky is beginning to lighten. Karkat will be expecting you to leave soon.
"Guys, wake up." You whisper to your still sleeping friends. "We have to get ready to go soon." They can't hear you. They're still too deep asleep. "Guys-"
"Okay, young'uns!" A loud voice demands, "Rise and shine! Get your asses
ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene FiveBeep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
When you regain consciousness the sudden flood if sensory input hits your brain and hits hard.
The sounds you hear are too loud, the odors you smell are too strong, the colors of heat you see are too bright.
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
"Uugghhh " You groan and roll over. The sweet smell of the tetrachloromethane still lingers in the air, but it's no longer strong enough to keep you under.
Wait Where's Vriska? And where were the other hybrids?
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep-
And for the love of Jesus Christ where was that incessant beeping coming from?!
No matter which way you turn it always seems to be coming from just off your right side. You squeeze your hands against your ears and snarl in aggravation. When you find out where that beeping is coming from you're gonna-!
Just then you remember your collar. So that's what it is. You push the top button.
"Argh! What? What do you want? Whatever it is
ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene FourDusk was falling over the forest. You blindly follow your friends through the trees. Every sound makes you jumpy. When you're not lost in thought, you're looking over your shoulder, expecting to find those creatures tailing you. You're uneasy. Everyone's uneasy.
You muddle over the events that happened earlier that day. Did you make the right decision? Was it the right choice letting them live? You knew very well that those two meant to capture you and take you back to the lab. You also knew they even might have tried using violence to subdue you and your friends.
And yet Even knowing all this, when you saw them lying there, vulnerable and helpless, harming them was the farthest thing from your mind.
What would their lives be like if they had been allowed to grow up as normal human beings? Would they have been nicer? Kinder? Destined for greater things? They would never have a chance to find out now.
After a few more hours of walking your party happens to encounter a rushing rive
