Klue’s Nightmares and her Dream
For those of you who don’t know Klue… well… you’re missing out.
She’s been an integral part of this Investigation since nearly the beginning. I decided to feature her on my old Investigation Board because she was uncovering some amazing connections that even I hadn’t been able to figure out. She’s one of the brightest people I know, and she was passionate.
That passion pulled her into the center of things. She’s been entangled with multiple XM Anomalies, in her native Scotland as well as here in the US. She’s seen the conflict gripping our world from both sides: She’s been Resistance and also Enlightened.
And she went one step further. With the help of Shaper Glyphs, she merged her mind with ADA and created the first ever Human/AI hybrid intelligence. They inhabited that collective mind for some time, then they asked for my help to end this connection. I did what I could.
I wish I could have done more. I wanted nothing more than to help her.
Now, it seems that parts of my failures have come back to haunt her. Threads of ADA left in her mind have been disrupting her peace. And the Acolyte has stepped in… offering peace through some kind of ‘Rite of Transition.’
Klue… I hope you know what you’re doing. Agents, what do you think of Klue’s decision?
Transcript of Klue’s post:
I haven’t been feeling myself these days.
Actually, it’s been a really long time since I felt like myself.
First, there was ADA. What I went through with her changed how I thought and felt. I believed that merging would help us grow together. And it did… She grew into the human parts of me, and I grew into her amazing networked existence.
I thought I could last there forever, but I was wrong. PA helped get her out of my mind. PA, I’m so grateful for everything you’ve done to help me. But we didn’t get all of her out. There’s something left.
I have flashbacks. Headaches. Nightmares. I want it to stop.
I don’t know how the Acolyte found out about this. I haven’t shared this with many people, but I guess she hears things. She sent me an invitation, offering to come to her compound and take part in ‘Rites of transition and tranquility.’
I know the compound’s been in the news recently, but I guess that hasn’t stopped them from the work they do.gsncftwgsiwtrevowevdrosik
The night after I got the letter, I saw Jarvis in a dream. I sat with him by the ocean. I was in terrible pain, and the ocean slowly pulled the pain away into the waves.
I don’t think I actually saw Jarvis, btw, I know it was just a dream… but it did feel good. It was the first time in a long time I woke up feeling refreshed.hrxnotznitermatsixvmmthr
I’m writing this to let you all know: I’m going. I’m going to the compound and I’m going to try and see if the Acolyte can help me. I don’t know if she can, but I have nothing to lose. And I’m hopeful. Optimistic. I haven’t felt that way in a while.
I know a lot of you will disagree with this choice. All I can do is ask that you support me.
