  • Muse continued to nudge at the subject of the Sound Barriers, assuming they were a weapon against those who were awake. However, she mentioned Bells while she was explaining, which created a somewhat hostile reaction.

While talking to SAO, even when hiding from the Shape, MrMusicMan789's HUD indicator showed enemies were going to attack him the entire time. No matter how quiet MrMusicMan789 was or how sneaky he tried to be, Sleepers from around the neighborhood would constantly converge on his location - on the street, on roofs, etc, as if the Sleepers and Lucids knew MrMusicMan789's precise location no matter where he went.

They should choose, not be forced". Artz concluded the LoR by expressing her desire to see Gabriel "normal, not in the song", and trusts SAO will keep him safe until she frees Gabriel.
  • SAO spoke with Artz following the LoR submission. They told Artz YOU REJECT THE MERCY OF THE VOICE. Arts confirmed they do. SPEAK-AS-ONE expressed their disappointment, and told Artz SO BE IT, but reassured Artz GABRIELD WILL YET REMAIN PROTECTED, then saying WE SHALL PROTECT HIM FROM YOU...
