two: video

[Connors is pacing around his room at NOHoPE, walking in and out of frame. When he walks in the frame, it's obvious to those who know him that something is wrong. The pacing starts off slow, but slowly becomes more and more frantic. His hair is disheveled-aside from that, he seems somewhat normal.]

You know, it was never a bad idea. A world without weakness. Everyone equal. Everyone finally on the same playing field. No more side-stepping around awkward situations, no more 'I'm sorry, I forgot, let me get that for you, Dr. Connors,' no more people treating you like you're something weak, something inferior, something- [a dark chuckle] Something less than human.

[The pacing becomes a bit more frantic, but Connors's voice still continues in a low, equal tone.]

I'm thinking of taking it back up once I get out of this cell. Get my old job back, work on cross-species regeneration, finally iron out the damn kinks and get the thing to work properly. I deserve this. [There's a pause, and Connors stops pacing.] And it wouldn't be that bad if I became that thing again. After all, I was strong. I could do so much.

[Connors turns to the camera, bitter scowl on his face.]

What do you think, City? Do I deserve a second chance? Or should the good doctor just slither back to where he came and leave well enough alone?

[Whoopsie doo, someone is totally affected by the Shadow Witch plot. Still scowling, Connors turns off the camera]
professorlionface: (I'll take your word for it.)

Well, I believe you do deserve the second chance, it's just a matter of...being more careful this time, I suppose.

Right now, I'm more concerned with what it could do to yourself. You've been so distraught since your return that you've seemed too afraid to even think about your work, and now, well, this sudden turnaround seems a little...odd.
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)

This doesn't sound like mere inspiration. What if you do become the creature again?
professorlionface: (Always hidden depths to consider...)

You weren't you when you were it, isn't that right? You have no input in what it does.

I'd hate to see you end up in that position again, and if you were thinking clearly, I'm sure that you would as well.

How can you expect me not to worry when you don't sound fine at all? You know what "worlds without weakness" entail, don't you?
professorlionface: (Um.)

It's a slippery slope. Always leads to Darwinism, the elimination of the weak for not meeting standards.
professorlionface: (Let's consider this.)

And what if they resist your methods of making them so?
professorlionface: (I'll explain this slowly.)

That's it? You'd just respect the decision and let them go on with their lives?

And what happens when they don't? Trust me, if there's one thing flatscans respond poorly to, it's screeds of genetic superiority.
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)

Maybe, if that were only a remote occurrence. But you're more likely to be met with scrutiny before acceptance. This isn't something you can pull off overnight.
professorlionface: (Um.)

What, and everyone just agreed to it as if it didn't raise a single question?

Connors, what you're talking about is madness! There are better ways to bring change, but this isn't going to do anyone any good, you least of all.
professorlionface: (Don't turn around.)

How do you know? Because you're confident that it will?
