Daniel sat, once again, in the exam room, as the scientist pored over a computer like the one he had seen at Area 50.
"Well, Daniel," the scientist said amicably, "we've run your profile through our computer, and it looks like you've got a couple of options."
"Options?" Daniel asked, incredulous.
"Yeah," the scientist answered, not looking up. "You know, which experiment you get put into. There's the paranormal section, the computers and cybernetics program, hybridization, and a new project of ours, FURIES."
"Furries?" Daniel asked, "Like what Jake's into?" The scientist chuckled.
"No, no. If you're into that sort of thing, you should go for hybridization. FURIES is a reference to Greek Mythology, not to an internet subculture. It stands for Fully Unconventional Recombination/Integration Energy System."
"You'll...find out when you get there. If that's what you want to do, I mean. Um...if you don't like any of those, I might be able to call the higher-ups and see if they can get you into something else, but I make no promises there. What'll it be?"
