Huh? No, wait!
We have questions! Of course we have questions!
What's the point of this game?!
Why did you take us?!
Where are we?!
And-- and who the hell is the real Zero!?

Five minutes remain until Chromatic Doors close.

You'd better hop to it and get those secondary doors open.

We aren't gonna open shit!
You can take your Lame-ary Game and shove it up your ass!
If you think we're just gonna swallow your psychotic crap and play along, you've got another think coming, you smart-ass little rodent!

Shut up!

Well, shoot... I thought you might say that.
Unfortunately, you have no choice but to follow the rules.

Why is that?

If anyone is left outside after they close, they'll...

They'll what?

They'll be penalized.

You keep saying that! What the hell is this "penalty" anyway?

Your bracelet also has a bunch of needles on the inside.
If you break the rules, those needles hop out and inject you.

First is the Soporil, which puts you to sleep. Nine minutes later, the tubocurarine is injected, numbing your respiratory muscles.

I guess you could say it'll really take your breath away!

Oh, and I mean the real Zero, not me.

Isn't that just soooo compassionate? If I had a heart, it'd be melting right now.

Of course, none of that will happen if you just follow the rules...

Three minutes remain until Chromatic Doors close.

Good luck, guys!

See you all later!

Have a nice trap!

We need to go! We need to get through these other doors!

But... how do we figure out which door to go through?

You still don't get it? Fine. Just pay attention. We don't have much time.
Zero's explanation was pretty confusing, so let me put it in small words for you.

There are only three possible options.

Sigma and I pair up with Luna. Our red and her blue can open the magenta door.
That would mean Clover and K would go with Alice. Their green goes with her red to make yellow.
That just leaves Dio and Quark as the blue pair, and Tenmyouji as the green solo. The only door they can open is the cyan one.

Sigma and I go with Tenmyouji, so we can use red and green to make yellow for that door.
That means Clover and K pair up with Luna to open the cyan door.
This leaves Dio and Quark with Alice, and together they can open up the magenta door.

That means Sigma, Alice, and I go through the cyan door...
Clover, K, and Tenmyouji go through the magenta door...

And Dio, Quark, and Luna go through the yellow door.

W-Wait, what?! Why me...?

If you don't want to, then maybe Alice or Clover can choose.
Or Tenmyouji or Dio or... anyone!
Once one person chooses, everyone else's decisions will be made for them.

One minute remains until Chromatic Doors close.

All right, all right! I'll pick!

Oh no! However will we decide? If only there were some well established and fully codified method that might allow us to reach a decision!

Oh, wait!

You know what to do, thread.
