Hmph. Fine. But I know you know what'll happen if you don't come back in a few minutes~ *twirls gun as she waits impatiently*

Copernicus gave a single nod at their words, then spun around and teleported from the room.

Reappearing on the lower floor of his Observatory he immediately set to work. He only had a few minutes before the anon became suspicious of his absence, but that should be enough to accomplish his plan.

His first course of action: confirm whether Savannah was still within the Observatory like he suspected, and make sure she was safe.

The anon was currently upstairs in the main dome room, the place Copernicus entertained anyone who came by to visit. That room had smooth curved walls with no doors leading off from it other than the exit that led outside, and was bare except for his shelves and a couple locked cabinets that were all crammed full of items. There was nowhere to hide or contain someone on that floor, meaning that if Savannah was somewhere in the building, she could not possibly be in the upper dome room, but would have to be somewhere down here.

He quickly checked every room on the lower floor, before looking into the storage closets. Flinging open the second door, he noticed that there was a blanket thrown over something at the bottom of the closet - an incredibly messy act that the gremlin himself would not have committed -  and pulling the blanket away, he revealed the young mouse laying curled up on the floor.

Savannah was still here, and he could see that she was breathing. She was safe. Copernicus had no reason to hold back against this anon any longer. They would regret harming his friends, and trying to threaten him within his own home. He would return to check Savannah’s vitals more carefully in a minute, but first he needed to use the last of his dwindling time to initiate the next phase of his plan. 

Copernicus teleported back to the stairs that attached the upper dome room to the floors below, opened a control panel hidden in the wall near their base, and pressed a specific sequence of buttons.

The Observatory roared to life; steam hissed, and the sound of mechanical gears rotating reverberated throughout the metal walls. The lockdown procedure had been initiated: metal blinds rolled down over the few windows on the lower level, and an especially heavy metal door slid across the part of the Observatory floor that opened to the stairs leading below, letting out a loud metallic clang as the opening was sealed shut. As an additional precaution, the entire upper building rotated 30 degrees, causing the floor to turn and cover over the already heavy metal door, leaving no indication that there were even stairs to begin with, and effectively sealing the two sides of the building off from one another.

On the upper floor of the Observatory the skylights also became covered in heavy metal shutters, however Copernicus chose not to initiate the main door lock; He would prefer the anon leave his home than trap them inside, and had therefore left the exit open.

With multiple layers of heavy materials between them and the anon, Copernicus knew he and Savannah were well protected in the lower apartment. He had built these walls, and that locking floor, to withstand a second Thinner Disaster. It would take a lot of fire power to break through what now separated them from the villain anon.

Knowing that help was on the way and that he was currently safe, he called the local Wasteland police station and sent off a text to Gyro, before finally returning to check Savannah for any serious injuries.

alright i'll show you what's behind my back but first,close your eyes and get ready.;)

Doing as asked, the excited gremlin closed his eyes and extended his hands in front of himself. “Alright, I’m ready. Can I have my gift now, please?”

PLUS it has an EXCELLENT storyline, superb visuals, and really obscure references. Like, REALLY obscure. Like, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, The Mad Doctor, E-tickets, and old rides. AND the Clock from the “it’s a small world” ride is a boss battle. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THIS GAME???

hey Copernicus,guess what's behind my back!*hides something behind his/her back*

"You want me to guess? Is it a rare item that’s neither toon nor inert? Or perhaps it’s somethin’ related to outer space?" The gremlin continued to bob excitedly in the air, leaning to one side in an attempt to see if he could identify the item the anon held behind them, "Oh, or is it some more postage stamps perhaps?"

Hubble has spotted an ancient galaxy that shouldn’t exist


This galaxy is so large, so fully-formed, astronomers say it shouldn’t exist at all. It’s called a “grand-design” spiral galaxy, and unlike most galaxies of its kind, this one is old. Like, really, really old. According to a new study conducted by researchers using NASA’s Hubble Telescope, it dates back roughly 10.7-billion years — and that makes it the most ancient spiral galaxy we’ve ever discovered.

"The vast majority of old galaxies look like train wrecks," said UCLA astrophysicist Alice Shapley in a press release. "Our first thought was, why is this one so different, and so beautiful?"
