"Anonymous, do you remember when I went into the city? How what we saw... affected me?"
> "Yes... you want to take them with you?"
> He's catching on fast.
"Not them - not the Crystals. It would be too much to think about, and - I'm not sure I can think of a good reason to include them. No, just - some ponies, from within the camp."
> Besides, the Crystals weren't the ones who you were worried about.
> "Granted, you'd still need a reason to bring them along."
"Do we?"
> Anonymous tilts his head.
> "Won't it be a bit obvious if we don't?"
"Yes - well - not having no reason at all. Just, we don't need a specific reason reason for the ponies in question. If we had to..."

> Despite the serious topic, a small smile finds its way to your lips.

> But you still weren't quite sure how-
> It clicks, and you breathe softly:
"The family project..."
> "Exactly."
> Nodding in confirmation, Anonymous cracks a small grin in return.
> "Mocha will announce that opportunity opening up. Once they start identifying possible acquisitions, we can have the closest relative come along to collect them... but for other acquisitions, to fill in work team positions we need, why not have it be by lottery instead? Or 'lottery' anyhow."
> There's something unsettling about how easily willing he is to bias an allegedly-fair chance.
