[Want to chat with Bolton privately? Here is where you do it! Bolton's office hours will be held in conference room B in the library for approximately four hours in the morning several days a week. During that time the blinds will be drawn and that room will be off-limits unless you're there to talk to Bolton, though the other three study rooms will still be available for use.

Don't play stupid. You haven't done it so far.

For a long game, this is a long. game. Are you really going to suggest that you, or whoever's funding you, or whoever found out this information, has been watching us all so long that they know everything? That we've been noticed and that there's been some kind of time travel to get this kind of information of us?

How.

I know where mine comes from. I don't know why you chose it over something more pertinent, but that's not the point.

You really do have access to some kind of temporal portal as well as interdimensional travel? The amount of energy, money, technology, people--who are you? Military? Government? Corporation?

That could mean a lot of things.

There are security cameras. Is this being aired? This is entertainment for you; is it entertainment for others?

[He asks as he scribbles down--it could be an angry scrawl or just his usual handwriting.] I hope you don't mind if I take some notes.

[He's definitely going to focus on those screens--nothing super important or interesting should be going on, but he has to take whatever brief opportunities he gets.]

I understand, but you can hardly fault me for bringing up any possible option. [Bolton acts like it's an answer, but Shadow notes that it was not a direct answer to the question.] By trial, is this supposed to be some full legal proceeding? Or is that just another game for us to play? Someone dies, we run around trying to figure out who, peace breaks down as we start pointing fingers at each other, see if the culprit gets away or gets caught. Should someone manage to succeed and leave--do they go home, to their own time and dimension?

[Scribble scribble. He normally wouldn't bother taking paper notes, but whatever's said in here are things he might actually want to share with the rest of the class.]

The rules mention punishments multiple times. What kind? Does it depend on the infraction and the severity thereof?

Both. [Since he brought up punishments for trials. Might as well.]

Execution is barbaric for a people with such advancements. Why?

Don't prisons still exist? Or literally anything else other than execution?

And what happens to our timelines if one of us just dies and doesn't go back?

You have who knows how many levels, and you don't have any place to house potential prisoners? You don't have any docking ships to take them away? Your only course of action is really to execute them? [He scoffs. Sounds like fucking humans to him.]

What about if I reach over and break your arm? [Despite the venom lacing his words, it's said in a flippant manner.] The punishment for tampering with devices is clearly some punishment with no room to argue. Yet "violence against the Overseers is highly discouraged". Sounds like someone doesn't care so much for your specific wellbeing. [The difference in tone between 'don't fuck with this item, period' and 'hey maybe don't do this thing or a bad thing will probably happen' seems significant.]

[So the extended stay is extremely extended. Is there no emergency crew to come in case of, well, emergency? Or would they teleport somewhere safer?

In case of destructive angry hedgehog, for example.

Shadow's eyes narrow at the offered bait, weighing his options. Given the certainty Bolton has, it seems best not to take it. But Shadow was also the one suggesting to the Doctor that they might want to deliberately break or bend rules just to see what happens. Appropriate retaliation...

He reaches out as if mind made up, to grab hold and give a deliberate snap--and takes Bolton's coffee cup instead, casually taking a sip. Are you a bitter or a sweet kinda guy, Bolty?]


Overseers and Benefactors. Are you all human, or do you have other species among your ranks?

[The Ultimate Caffeination.]

But this whole thing is funded by them. Even organized. So they tell your bosses who tell you to trap yourselves on a station with a bunch of people capable of murder, even encouraging them to do so.

Unless you volunteered for this job. Have you run this test before? Or your counterpart?

[I regret to inform the modstaff that Shadow would not wonder if they're partners or partners.]

With two seemingly different ways of approaching these mind games. He's making himself out to be sympathetic, and you've made yourself out immediately to be the bored child who just wants this over with already. Part, and counterpart.

[That's fine, he can wait a little bit, writing out a little more and finishing off your coffee as black as his soul. When the silence creeps on what feels like a little too long:]

Maybe I'll ask him about it later. Surely without you around to be boisterous and pushy while making a spectacle of yourselves, he might have more to say on the subject.
