Okay, okay... It's cool. We got this.


Well, know when you're beaten.

I guess we'll just have to come back to this path later, then.

No, for real. This isn't like that other time when I pretended we were at a Bad End™ when in fact we weren't. Or even like that time I pretended we actually had to figure out the password when canonically we can't yet. This is a 100% genuine To Be Continued moment.

Never mind that the next AB Game that will pit Sigma and Phi, with their 7BP apiece, against an auto-allying Luna.

We could've been about to walk outta here, but nope! Apparently nothing interesting happens if we do that. Apparently things only work if we get into that computer.

I mean, see? It says right there. "Solve the mystery of the two-headed lion!". Non. Negotiable.

Now, you may be wondering... How did we get locked into this?

Where did it all go so badly wrong?

Were we somehow wrong not to betray Luna in the second AB Game?

Maybe we shouldn't have kept her all to ourselves by taking the green door...?

Was it even a good idea to trust Luna, even if it did score us some BP...?

Fuck, maybe we shouldn't have even teamed up with her in the first place.

One can never help but wonder... What if we hadn't? What if we'd chosen differently?


Wouldn't you rather just try it and find out?

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the first vote of the rest of the LP.
