So I'm gonna try the warehouse again tonight. I need the wire, and the proxies can't guard it all the time, right? So I think it'll probably be OK- Not that I'm taking unnecessary risks. I've got some extra padding on my jacket, as well as some wooden plates underneath. Might give me splinters, but should be able to stop me from getting cut in the arm again. Unless, they have, like, an axe. Considered taking the gun, but I decided against it- I've never fired one outside a shooting range, and I don't think I would even if I was sure I could hit. Raises the stakes too high, means you can be sure death is on the line.
I wonder who'll be there. The one I stabbed in the leg was cut pretty deep, so I doubt he'll be mobile. Maybe I could find him, check local hospitals or whatever, but what would I do? Kill him when he's helpless? I don't think I'm ready to cross that line yet. That's the sort of thing Craft did, and I'm not going to become like him. At least, I'm not going to kill where it's avoidable.
In other news, proxies have case files. Would be interesting as fuck to get access, but I have nothing to go on, and what would I do with it anyway? It'd help someone like incognito more, since he's got to deal with Kelevtov. Or Sanna, if Snowblind even matters enough to get a mention. Maybe he has a footnote. A quick mockup:
Snowblind; A Proxy with a ski-mask. Do not send on missions- he has been shown to be of little operational use, with failures even when given optimal conditions. Case in point, most recent 3 missions all failed.
1)MISSION:Find Madelyn. Make her pay for serving the Feral One.
OUTCOME:Failed, due to inability to find notebooks pertaining to her whereabouts. Worth noting that by the proxy's own words, it is his impatience and lack of forward planning that led to this failure.
2)MISSION:Find Alexandria. Use notebooks in her possession to find Madelyn.
OUTCOME:Failed. Despite tracking her down multiple times, and having her unconscious and at his mercy, Snowblind has failed. Reasons are posited as a form of mental trauma, possibly resulting from being dropped on his head as an infant, or paint with an unusually high concentration of lead.
3)MISSION:Do literally anything with Proxy Kelevra
OUTCOME:Failed. Attempts to make peace through killing Runner Alexandria were misguided, due to Proxy Kelevra's attempts to degrade her mental state (see document 27734-D). This attempt also failed, leading to the belief that as well as his lack of intellect, Proxy Snowblind has been shown to be grossly incompetent. Attempts to use Proxy Amelia also failed, due to a friendly fire incident (see incident report 463-S). As well as his own incompetence, Proxy Snowblind has been shown to utilise incompetent subordinates, as the only alternative is to blame the incident on Master Slenderman.
So, Snowy, that close? It is, isn't it. Word perfect, in fact. I bet you that much.
