> hey guys, kada wanted me to put this here
> Hello, deceased canaries we really should have been paying closer attention to-
I'm not feeling super Vriskalicious, so I'm not gonna be at the lab today. Sorry about that :( Also wanted to say thanks for y'all's great work on the latest grant proposal - Cypress is looking at it now and he seems unusually receptive. Since things have been amped up so much, there's no ongoing experiment, and I'm not there, y'all won't be supervised and theoretically there's no way for me to know whether or not you actually did any work. See you guys tomorrow.

ceo of caramelldansen

ceo of caramelldansen

> that's quite optimistic
> personally i think he's just using them as a guinea pig


keeptalkingdusky

> for?


ceo of caramelldansen

> manipulation tactics
> karkat's less desperate than them and he can tell faster
> i think they know but like the attention and the protection too much


keeptalkingdusky

> fucking nightcore animal i have become lookin ass


ceo of the rose empire

keeptalkingdusky

> he gets on my nerves personally but hes a pretty upright guy
> ok back to my previous point
> yes, i think all their compassion is performative


summercity

> why
> what could they possibly have to gain


keeptalkingdusky

> this
> they could murder somebody in the middle of the square and you guys would still be all like "oh no its ok they brought me cake one time because it was my birthday"
> and they know that


ceo of caramelldansen

> i'm not inclined to be quite so cynical, but dusky's at least a little bit right
> whether or not they know it, as someone so high up the chain of command, every kindness that they show will have some element of artificiality. even if their motivations are pure, they are still above us and cannot have true solidarity until they are either on our level or actively changing the system to benefit others. they have done neither


hozier2

> they tried a little bit
> but overall yeah


ceo of the rose empire

> how the fuck do you articulate so well


ceo of caramelldansen

> alcohol at night, coffee in the morning, and both in the afternoon


Lykzyran18

> i think you all overestimate how much power they really have
> they're more of a figurehead, really


keeptalkingdusky

> x to doubt


king of omashu

> hey guys. i'm already at the lab and i have the tv set up.


ceo of the rose empire
