a. Cry. (coin toss tie-breaker)

“There, there,” the ButlerBot says, without making even the slightest effort to sound comforting. “There’s a time and a place for that, and I must confess to have neither the interest nor software to indulge in such behaviour. Please save such displays for Miss Henry.”

The ButlerBot ejects a spoon and scoops a thick glug of green puree from the bowl.

“The Rites of Heegurkurkur deplete the physical body’s precious bodily essences. Miss Henry is quite clear on the matter.”

The spoon nears your face, gliding closer, closer…

“You must eat to replenish your essences, before it is too late. It is nearly time!”

a. Eat the damn porridge.


b. Cry more.


c. HAMMER TIME.

    (Also, is it going to be 7 _choices_ (thus 8 entries), or 7 entries? Or will we get an open-ended conclusion, with choices we'll never know the effects of? Enquiring minds want to know!)

    Hammer? What hammer?!
    I suspect there's a twist to this one.

    Maybe I'm a soft touch but I feel like just giving in, eating the damn porridge and letting whatever may happen, happen (a).
