--ridiculous. I suppose you'd just let them get away with it. [Jason's voice crackles over the network, catching him mid-conversation. His anger is obvious.]

It's my month and I get to do what I want. [Zo sounds childishly petulant.]

Your month but my collar checkups. We're lucky we've at least trained some of them in learned helplessness or who knows how much worse it could have been! [Jason's anger only increases--he obviously doesn't know he's being recorded and broadcast.] And you know the rules.

Yes, but Riki already-- [Zo's petulance increases, but Jason cuts him off sharply.]

Riki's concerns aren't mine. They've interfered with my business, I'll punish them.

[Zo's tone darkens--still childishly angry, but there's an edge to it.] You know I have to approve whatever you're gonna do.

[Jason sighs, but his tone softens a little. It's difficult to tell why with just audio to go on, though.] I realize that. I'm hardly going to request experiment time; it's my turn next month anyway. All I want from you is--

[The feed cuts out.]

Oh, fuck you, Jason. It's not 'learned helplessness', it's 'some of us got body swapped and aren't going to be stupid and risk that happening again, even if we did figure out how to fix it'.

That said, I hope Zo kicks you in the junk, Jason. Repeatedly.

Or were here when they were too busy with Ruana's game of pods and saw firsthand what it was to go without, without supervision.

*He knew they were deluding themselves about them, but never realized it was this much. Enoch leans on the keyboard desk, pushing the keyboard a little further away.*

Or in our case, were unaware of just what it was to be in charge of the tower. At least we know now the current overseer has quite a bit of power regardless.

What does helplessness have to do with this? I simply refused the boycott because it wasn't the action I wanted to take.

Learned helplessness - Basically, he means he's tried to condition people into thinking that they cannot do anything, Sephiran. You and I may have chosen not to boycott the checkups for reasons other than that, but I suspect that quite a few people were thinking along the lines of "it's just going to hurt us, why bother?"

That's what he means - our own despair at our situation, the fact that people break down when hurt too much, has been used against us.

...It's despicable.

[Waver looked for a moment like he was going to speak up; likely to wonder aloud just what hierarchy the administrators actually followed. The idea of confronting them at all had clearly crossed his mind, otherwise he wouldn't have moved to respond at all.]

[But on the other hand, drawing more attention to himself after outright stealing a container of collar fluid struck him as a bad idea. Waver sighed, scowling before cutting off the video without speaking.]

[Haha wow Robin does not look happy.]

Controlling the flow of information and preventing information leaks - those are both vital to one's success, tactics-wise. I don't suppose, Jason, that you intended for us to hear that "learned helplessness" bit, did you?

[Her eyes narrow.]

I don't suppose another boycott is in order after this...?

Wouldn't we sound a little too much like a child who's just learned to say 'no,' in that case?

[ well holy shit, Ion is actually smiling on the network, his tone genial-sounding and- (darkly) amused, only to those who even know to listen for it. ]

Maybe the next time they attempt to force something of us, perhaps.

You'd think we pissed him off.

[One, highly amused audio comment made but Sephiroth doesn't even stick around to reply to anyone. Having spent a few minutes logged on the network at one of the terminals in the hallway. Sephiroth then promptly logs off and heads down the corridor. The retrievals may be scattered today but he can't afford for them to catch him even now, the last catch-and-release he'd been way too lucky in avoiding those fairy rings.

It has been completely worth it.]

Learned helplessness, huh? While I disagree with that comment, this does make me wonder about what that collar fluid is made of and how the drones here actually work and respond to things. I suppose we'll find out soon enough.

However, Jason, if you are reading this, people have not just given up because they decided to pick their fights rather than risk their souls flying out of their body.

And Zo? If you're reading this, you're a brave person. I don't know what Jason wants from you, but good luck, alright? Do your best. Don't let them bully you.

[A sigh.]

I am certain this sort of thing need not be said, but... I suggest we prepare ourselves for whatever Jason has planned. Stock up on food, clean water, and the like. It is not likely he would use the same trick again, but last time his plans were foiled, he removed all food from the cafeteria.

I also suggest checking on your loved ones often until we are made certain of what he wants to do. That way, if someone disappears or starts acting strangely, the word can get out quickly.

[Aaah, so much for getting a chance to rest and the retrieval unit fiasco before Jason's month.]

[Let me preface this by saying that Rick is, by no means, a coding genius--so not only is he having trouble figuring out how to make the filter work in the first place, but its strength is what you would expect of the tower's provided rudimentary security measures. And by that, I mean pretty much anyone who figures out it exists and has a meager grasp of how to crack these locks should be able to do so. It's really bad.]

[It doesn't help that Rick doesn't know the IDs of most of his teammates, so the filter successfully extends to just a few people--Sertoria, Waver, and Enoch--but he's made an attempt at adding Doc and Lucifel by name, which probably will not work. Have fun trying to sort this one out!]


...I know I shouldn't talk about this over the network, but...I'm sure he knows what we're up to. This is really bad. What are we going to do? What can we do?

So thinking one specific thing is potentially not worth the risk at that very moment is helplessness. It sounds as if he's cut the base of his quill too wide. Everyone could benefit if he'd refine that, I think.
