Good evening, imPorts.

We are the Constellation. We have addressed this community once before, in an attempt to make us all aware that the government that has allowed us to be stolen, injected us with their technology without our consent, branded us like cattle, and coerced us into pledging loyalty is not our friend. They do not care for us or our well-being any more than they care for the natives that the unsavory among us choose to hurt with minimal consequence. They care only about keeping us under their thumb, keeping us placated through hero worship and shiny things so that they may find a way to weaponize us.

The evidence only compounds, bigger, and brighter, and harder to ignore with every turn around the sun. We will not stand for it. None of us should.

We want to thank the upstanding imPort that shared his information regarding Heaven Scent and their connection to DARPA and OTO, organizations that have been determined to hurt and defame our community for some time. Heaven Scent, not content to simply spread chaos, has gone one step further by stealing our DNA, either outright or under false pretenses, cloning us, using our own bodies and our own powers to sow dissent between our community and the natives, and even cause conflict among ourselves.

Unfortunately, there is more to it than that.

Native activists have been fighting Heaven Scent for some time, particularly their plastic surgery division, who have been fixing problems that are not there, taking "flawed" people and making them "better". We now know that they have been using imPort DNA to do so. This comes from a geneticist that used to work there, and was swiftly transferred to another department after her relationship with a high-ranking law enforcement official in De Chima came to light.

Where, of course, they have a separate cloning facility from the one in Richmond, a stone's throw from where we sleep.

Files and communication extracted from their computers indicate that they consider our DNA to be "remarkable, even GODLY." They have no intention of stopping their invasive and dangerous research, into our biology, or that of the metahumans, in order to create their own soldiers to sell to the highest bidder. They are not the only ones planning to do so. Only the most successful, and the most profitable.

The clones, as far as our research can tell, are perfectly normal, but subjected to technological interference similar to our own nanites. Physiologically, they are as we are, but we all suffered because of their inherently violent nature, even those of us lucky enough not to be cloned ourselves. To create life, only to use it as a weapon or a means for profit, is despicable, especially such incomplete lives with such extraordinary abilities.

We are not weapons to be used at anyone's whim. We are not reservoirs of earth shattering power to leech from to feed anyone's greed. We are not tools, not of the government or any loosely affiliated vanity projects.

I hope that the rest of you agree with us.

[ so this is the information Dooku mentioned. Things to be falling into place, and starting to make sense, at least with all the information found since February. The Russians were dangerous because of their weapons, but Kaneki finds OTO worse because of their technology and use of genetics to create more weapons.

Plus, they are obviously on US soil and the government still has not uncovered the full extent of OTO's web. As usual, that will be left for imPorts. ]

Thank you for sharing this information.

We will see if others care.
[ most don't, since this is all a "temporary vacation" and many end up leaving after a couple of months. But Kaneki hopes that mentality changes after all that happened. ]

That's a very romantic way to look at it. I doubt most agree, though, or are working towards that.

There is certainly potential, but after all the years I've been here, we never completely joined together. Though the natives and the government don't see it, we are all far too different to do it like that.

Usually we have to be pushed, sadly.

[ ... So. While Iwai wouldn't go so far as to say he's surprised to learn that there's an ongoing rebellion against the government here, he certainly feels a growing sense of validation as he reads through the Constellation's missive. He's only been here for a short amount of time, but in that time, he's felt a growing sense of unease whenever he let himself think too hard about the government and the inexplicable power they rule over him. He was willing to bury those worries somewhere in the back of his mind - he had more immediate concern about when he would see his son again, after all, and he typically assumes his inherent distrust towards authority comes from his years with the Hashiba, so it's easy enough for him to convince himself that he's just being paranoid when it comes to these things - but this...

Well, this has his interest. These Constellation guys sound like they're more than just talk. ]

"Godly" DNA... making flawed people "better"... the fuck, man. They're talking about us like we're holy and treating us like we're scum in the same breath. Christ, I don't want my body to be fuel for whatever fucked up shit they're gonna do next.

Look, I don't know much about all this, but you guys sound like you know what you're doing. So... good job getting this out there. Hope I can do my part.

[ Aaah, questions. He has a lot of them. Too many to count. Not sure where to start. ]

Thanks for the welcome. Not sure how rewarding I can make a place designed to fatten me up for the slaughter, but hey. Appreciate the sentiment.

So it's clear to me that we're in immediate danger. An exposΓ© on a high-reaching government conspiracy rarely ends well for the people, and I'm saying that without factoring in all the Clones and Supersoldiers and shit that this world gets to deal with. So I guess my first question is...

What happens if you die here? I can defend myself just fine, but I don't think I'm wrong to assume I'll see my fair share of violence before I get to go home. Rebellions always gotta get worse before they get better, I've found.

Very nice. Color me impressed.

Here's hoping it attracts attention for people that want to help.

Sometimes you need to impress people to do that.

I'm already working on helping. Unless you have specific needs?

So we're dealing with a group of rogue scientists who have no problem with human experimentation and experiments so dangerous the government didn't wan to do them. Ones that are quite mercenary.

This is going to be a mess. But dealing with that facility will be a start.
bindsthedead: (art-cause for concern)

[personal profile] bindsthedead 2017-08-06 09:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Especially considering how dangerous they could be if they set more clones loose. Not all my powers are inborn, but if they figure out a way to give necromancy to more people... [Honestly, Sabriel would probably be eager to give locals access to the Charter. But necromancy is a different story.]

So the clones we fought are just tests? Just to see if they could work?

Magic died within dragons long ago, so I cannot performed magic like I should have. If they can find a way to insert imPort magic into dragon clones, it will be a disaster.

and what's going to happen to the clones?

that's a miserable life, isn't it? to be created by someone who just sees you as a thing and then they throw away like you're nothing. i'd like to try to do something for them if there are any left, but they aren't really designed to be friendly, are they?
