I really hope everyone's recovering from all the... everything. And I hope those of you who were stupid enough to fall for it are happy with yourselves. This town never, ever gives anything up so easily. They're just messing with our heads.

Now that we've had some time to calm down and re-evaluate, I'd like to put this forward. Information is our best defense here. And I know there have been investigations carried out in the past, both by myself and by other people. But I don't think there's an actual investigative body among our resistance? I think we should form one.

I don't know what kind of spearhead I could be--all I've managed to do is get people together to collect forensic data on the Postman when we though he was dead--but... I'm willing to at least try and organize everyone. Please, if you can help, consider it.

How are you holding up? Did anything happen to you while everyone was killing each other?

There's plenty to share.]

I am already undertaking a project of this nature, I'm taking down everyone's accounts and recounting the story to our town historian, of sorts.

Oral accounts are good evidence--great thinking! I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes, I'm just trying to get everything organized so we don't end up doing redundant investigations.

We have a town historian?

Hey there. You okay?

[She feels like she should say more, but... well, what do you say to a woman who watched you be murdered?]

Hey, Ema. A friend of mine from home just showed up so I'm having her stay over a couple days, okay?

Hmhmhm. Greed and power can certainly do things to twist a man, don't you think? But when your own life is on the line here, do you honestly think many people would be rational?

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-14 05:24 am (UTC)(link)
They can. But I don't approve of it.

What other choice do we have but to be rational? Getting stupid and emotional does us no good.

[There's a touch of hypocrisy there, although Ema herself doesn't realize it.]

[a thoughtful hum over the phone line, and then:]

Consider it considered. But, Miss Skye. Would you describe this endeavor as a proactive or a reactive investigative group?

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-15 08:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Right now, it's reactive. We're just responding to what's already happened.

If I can get things well-organized, we might even be able to get some proactive investigation going.

"Actually, I've been doing data analysis for whatever groups ask. Its not quite investigation, but there is a lot of information that needs proper synthesis. If you have a group that is going out and obtaining new data though I'll gladly try to condense it into something manageable."

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-15 08:24 pm (UTC)(link)
I agree. There's a lot of information that we've learned that we need to pull together and analyze--or even cross reference, in cases of different accounts of the same events.

Thanks for the offer. I'm sure we'll need the help there.

[It takes Crowe a lot to return this call. He said he put his investigator days behind him, but... he wants to help. He really does.]

Ema... how have you been?

I-I'd like to help. Join the team. Whichever.

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-15 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
I've been... hanging in there. For what it's worth. How have you been?

I'm happy to have you.

[There are things to do that aren't active investigations! You can always help, Crowe!]

[Perhaps this is someone who can actually tell him more about the town and the events that have recently occurred, even if he's not into the whole "working with others" thing she's offering.]

Care to elaborate on what all the "everything" actually includes? I can never get a straight answer out of anyone. [Probably not true, seeing how he's only asked a few people.]

A couple of weeks ago, the Census Bureau in town sent out letters to several residents instructing them to kill a specific target. Rewards were offered to those who went through with the kill, while threats against a loved one were presented against those who resisted.

I was killed almost immediately, so this next part is second-hand--apparently, after about two or three days, people who had failed to kill their target started hallucinating. I guess the idea was to scare them into actually going through with the murder.

Everyone who died is back now. But, at the time, the respawning system in town wasn't active--people who died remained dead until the town called the killing off.

Hey.

Sounds like a plan. I used to... sort of be a detective back home. Well, not officially, but we did investigate stuff to track down criminals so... it kind of counts, I guess? ...Of course, that's kind of hard to do without all of our nifty gadgets and my powers but, hey. I've still got my brain. ...At least, I think I do.
