I'm curious, so I'll put my ear to the door as we're passing it by.

I'd like to check it out, as it's red and we're Reds, but will defer to Sou-R-LAD.

The next several landings all have similar red doors, until you reach the 9th floor, which has an unmarked grey door instead, just like the one you entered in the basement. A couple of you hear an odd noise as you continue upward, and notice that Veryaf has been leaving a trail of dripping soup in your wake.

I decide to keep what I heard at the door to myself.

I am wiping up the soup from the stairs as I follow.

Er, I probably should have PM'd that, shouldn't I?

Oh well, what's done is done!

How are you wiping it up? You absolutely do not have a towel.

Oh, that's a good point.

Actually I'm using the cleaning ray on the liquid.

"You heard our team leader! No tarrying! Onward and upwards!"

I push past everyone and continue climbing the stairs to the very top floor, where I assume our "concerned citizen" is.

Alright, so it sounds like everyone just wants to keep climbing, so I'll do some fast-forwarding:
  • Veryaf keeps dripping.
  • Bone keeps following him like picking up after a pet.
  • Floors 10-18 have orange doors instead of red.
  • Floor 19 is unmarked/grey again.
  • Floor 20 has a yellow door.
And I'm going to say that's about how far you make it before Unprecedentedc and Bone both absolutely need to take breaks or be left behind. Bone looks, well, bone tired, as he's been carefully cleaning hundreds of steps, while Unprecedentedc looks like he might literally black out soon. He's been carrying a large, heavy metal cooler up 20 flights of stairs without any assistance, and even those of you without are starting to feel the burn.

I made this for another thread, but it's been pointed out to me that it's currently called for here as well:

Unprecedentedc-R-ISIS sets down the cooler for a second. They feel like they will probably need days of recovery before they can pick up a pencil again, but of course, the mission calls.

They get an idea, and open the cooler to retrieve the Happy Fun-Time Injector. After getting approval from Hamme-R-TIME to use their assigned equipment, they will advance on Bone-R-MAN, sticking the injector into their neck. They'll inject about half of what's in there, if possible.

You don't have any way to determine that, or control it. It's an opaque cylinder. It's more of a fire and forget thing: you jab it into them, the press the button and the needle injects and then retracts.

That said, it's up to our good friend Bone to decide if he allows that to happen.

I trust our loyal happiness officer.

Also, I am too worn out to resist anyway.

Unprecedentedc-R-ISIS jabs the small device that he's holding into your neck, and you feel a sharp pinch. You're just about to be annoyed, when suddenly it doesn't seem so bad. In fact, you'd say that you feel about 34.2% happier!

You're still tired and sore, though.

Once it's apparent that the Happy Fun-Time Injector has been successfully tested, Unprecedentedc-R-ISIS looks at it, reluctantly takes a deep breath, and injects themselves.

Well, turtle, I have good news, and I have bad news.

The good news is that you feel about 34.2% happier! You're not sure what you were worried about, really.

The bad news is that your legs and arms are still on fire and you still have a heavy metal cooler and a lot more floors yet to climb.

It is at about this time that you all hear footfalls coming from above. You're not sure how far, but you're positive that it's more than one person. Then the footfalls stop briefly.

"You really think any of the CMT's got in here?"

"Nah, this place is locked down tight, and Ba-R-NEY made sure that the one who burned that hole in the front door won't bother anyone ever again. Still, though, Pa-V-LOV seems really angry for some reason, so we'd be be thorough, just in case."

The footsteps resume, and sound as if they're slowly getting closer.

Feeling happy and confident, I loudly agree with the idea of ducking into the door to avoid the people who obviously want to kill us.
