Yash #19





A1: Yash Tir-Rel. Research director. Research team Pytheas. Report number nineteen made at two fifty-eight.


A2: The efforts of the Pytheas team continues to provide results at a rate better than I could have asked for. Even with the noose that tightens around our necks the team continues to give the project their absolute. Even so, it is no simple task to remain positive right now. The circumstances are… not ideal. But, with them relying upon me as they are, I know I must try. I can’t help but feel-%%ERROR#881%%64 65 6c 65 74 65 20 69 74%%

A3: There are problems. I can’t figure them out, but they are there. In the code. The data. Tiny errors that are appearing. Small enough to not bring everything tumbling down, large enough to put a hitch in our plans. I can’t make sense of where I’m going wrong. Is it these lines upon lines that blur together? Am I making these mistakes? Perhaps my mind is being whittled down by this exhaustion-%%ERROR#881%%64 65 6c 65 74 65 20 65 76 65 72 79 20 62 69 74 21%%

A4: -doesn’t make sense! I built it! It should be perfected by now! What more does it need? I sit here, hour after hour, analysing the additions, but still these errors hound me like gnats. Perhaps some of the others are becoming aware? Perhaps they look to sabotage my efforts? Perhaps-


A5: No. They wouldn’t know, they have no access to this data. Not for lack of trying, mind you. With Ara gone things are a little easier to keep under wraps. It wasn’t overly hard to lean her interests towards collecting mining data, and easier still to suggest to management she had been harbouring ulterior motives. If-%%ERROR#881%%64 65 6c 65 74 65 20 64 65 6c 65 74 65 20 64 65 6c 65 74 65 20 64 65 6c 65 74 65 20 64 65 6c 2d%%

A6: For now, things have to continue as they are. Once this expedition is done, I can stand tall in the midst of our new discoveries. The potential, the  I just have to stick out these sleepless nights. I do dread the approaching deadline, but I hope the relief following it shall be worth it. Yash Tir-Rel, signin- %%ERROR#881%%74 68 65 79 20 6d 75 73 74 6e 27 74 20 74 72 61 63 65 20 69 74 20 62 61 63 6b 20 74 6f 20 75 73%%

  1. Love seeing more in this universe – all the little breadcrumbs you leave for the reader really sell that there’s so much more going on behind the scenes that we’ll never fully see
