We absolutely cannot afford to lose momentum at this point. If we put Project Promenade on hold then we will lose every chronon specialist on staff overnight. Monarch is paying double the wages we are. It would be an absolute nightmare. Our staff is irreplaceable and I’m struggling to hold on to them as it is.
I’ve known William Joyce since childhood. There’s no doubt that he’s a genius, but he also has a history of paranoia and mental instability. He’s lost sight of the big picture. His concerns regarding Project Promenade are outlandish, unfounded, and based on ludicrous conjecture.
The only reason we pulled Will in as an adviser is because there are no other qualified specialists available who the investors will trust to sign off on the project now that Dr. Kim is gone. We can’t just wait for the board to find a suitable replacement because there are none. Kim approved these figures long before his death. I refuse to let Will sabotage everything we’re building here.
I need you to keep the investors distracted. Buy me time before a final decision is reached. I’ll find a way to gather the proof we need in order to proceed to beta testing. Give me 48 hours. I’ll make this right.

Investors have made their decision. Based on William Joyce’s concerns they are halting all funding for Project Promenade until an equally qualified specialist can be assigned to the project to perform further inspection. I did everything I could to sway the vote but the only board member who voted in your favor was Martin Hatch.
We brought up William Joyce’s questionable mental health but the damage was already done. He planted the seed of doubt. Let me know how you wish to proceed.
