"Rook and Cheshire keep each other sane, I think. Rook was almost as bad as you when she first came out. I still remember it, she'd lost her memories and was barely human, talking to ghosts. But she pretends very well. The pretending is what keeps her going." Hammond said, taking a sip of his own hot chocolate and making a face as he burned his tongue. "You'd think I'd know better. Where was I... Cheshire is tough. A little slow, but most things slide off her, so she's a good person to have when everything is falling apart. She just keeps going, and Rook needs that to keep her tethered to life."
"Squick didn't have as long a Durance as you did, by a long shot. Two-three years. And his wasn't the worst, though it was terrifying in its own way. But being around people helps him cope." Hammond said. He had been around for a while, and the film industry was a good teacher of human psychology. "We're all a little fractured here, but we help each other and we put up a brave front of normality."
