Hidden Messages

Okay, so I'm sure some have you noticed that someone or some...thing has been leaving hidden messages in my posts. All the posts in question were made when, for one reason or another, my mental defenses were lowered.

1. In Confessions of a London Librarian/A Dialogue Between Self and Same, I was exhausted from helping Thage get ready to move to North Dakota.
"I'm falling apart"
2. In The Facade Cracks, I was still reeling from discovering that my memories had been fakes.
"listen to Reach or the Fallout will be far worse than You can possibly imagine."
3. In Crux, I was recovering from the cold I'd stressed myself into while caring for Ava.
"I'm in a nightmare. help me."
4. In WHISKEY, I was mauldy with the drink.
"be EVER vigilant reach watch the signs"
5. In Oh, Christ, I had a horrible hangover that Ava had only made worse with her little paper bag trick.
"the worst of all will be hung from the trees"
So, yeah, these messages aren't exactly inspiring confidence but they're not being made for no reason and they're only made when I'm not in full control of my mind. So, Ava and I have conceived an experiment. She and I are going to lock ourselves inside her room with lots of writing/drawing materials, paper, the laptop she nicked from Thage and copious amounts of alcohol. I'm gonna get pissed off my head and she's gonna keep an eye on me while I hopefully write and draw shit, maybe even post here again. Ava's not just there to observe, however, it's also her job to bring the experiment to a close when I pass out. Okay, there's a can of cider with my name on it. Also "Magners", because it's only known by its TRUE NAME back in Ireland. Let the experiment begin.

Reach out.

  1. Either I'm seeing things, or some of those words are lightened too. It spells out nonsense, though, if they are.

    Okay, so I know it's not considered polite to introduce yourself to somebody by yelling at them but WHAT THE FUCK

    VIVI AND CHESS, DUDE. VIVI. AND. CHESS. Thank god Vivi thought you'd mistaken them for somebody else and then Jean covered your ass, but SHIT that could have been messy.

  18. People are so fun when they're drunk. So, so fun.

    Anyway, there's "your fighting is a joke you canonly[cannot?] prepare" on Maduin's blog, now, and "I WATCHED MY LOVED ONES DIE BEFORE MY EYES" on Ava's. Figured I'd put them here for the sake of making the results slightly easier to sift through once this is done.

    Looking through the other blog's he's subscribed to right now to see if I can find more.

  19. "bullets won't save you nothing will" over at Observe and Terminate.

    ReplyDelete
  20. And possibly "the wood will settle on bones" at Let Us Keep Living, but I'm not sure if I read that right.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, there's definitely a lot more data now, which is always good, but most of it's a lot more cryptic than the first few were...analyzing this stuff's gonna be fun. Tough, but fun.

    Guess we'll have to wait until after Reach wakes up and recovers from his inevitable hangover, though.

    (And yes, Scott, this really just happened.)

  22. Oh, what's that Hellfire? You forgot about the Convention on Morons and Egomaniacs? Oh, you did? Oh my, that's just awful.

    Fuck off.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh cool. Because deleting comments suddenly makes you better than a convention of morons and egomaniacs.

    I guess I did forget.

    I'll fuck off now then.

  24. You were getting up your own arse for no good reason. I didn't say anything to you, but you act like I attacked you personally. Frap can stand up for himself, he doesn't need you to fight his battles for him.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm not fighting Fraps goddamn battles for him. And I wasn't getting up my own ass. You could never survive if you attacked me personally, trust me on that.

    I was simply pointing out a fact of like, that being drunk doesn't excuse you from jack shit, yet you used as an excuse anyway, and you honestly think you're in the fucking right.

    ReplyDelete
  26. What the flying fuck are you on about, child? I never attempted to justify any stupid things I said while drunk. Please indicate to me a single place where I ever said that being drunk was an excuse for being a dickhead.

    (Also, I'm fairly sure I could survive attacking from you or any other video game character who'd care to try.)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hmm your response was three minutes after my response to you deleting my comment, what's wrong Reacheese Pieces? You writing another paragraph full of hypocritical stuck up bullshit?

    ReplyDelete
  28. "WELL FRAP YOU KJNOW WHAtEYh SAY ALCOHL BReINGs OuTT TEH TRUTAH"


    Oh, lookie you DID comment. Cute, I don't delude myself into thinking I'm a video game character just because of my avatar. And no Reach trust me, you wouldn't. I'd shit your god-damn soul out if you decided you wanted to wreck.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Actually, my laptop crashed, but that's besides the point.

    Yes, I commented and said "Well, Frap, you know what they say, alcohol brings out the truth". I made a drunken observation that alcohol makes people truthful. I didn't say "Well, Frap, I'm insulting you repeatedly but it's okay because I'm drunk." Learn to argue, then come and talk to me.

    (Oh man, I just looked at your blog. You're one of those people who thinks they have superpowers. No wonder you think you can take me. From what I can see, the only way you could win is if you tried to bludgeon me with your ego, after all, if it takes four blogs to hold it, it could probably cause some serious blunt force trauma.)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Four blogs I don't really have access to...and well I guess they're shut down due to ...recent events.

    Nope. I don't think. I know. I've proven it several times over. Witnesses? Leaf, Slice, Pete, Ron, Aiden.

    In fact i don't even need them to be right there, how the hell do you think a 15 year old gets his shit around within seconds at a time?

    Mhmm, my ego right. My egos been stomped on more times than I can count, and I certainly won't be blogging about it.

  31. All I see in my mind is two jerks who won't budge off their pedastal. Kelly, leave Reach alone, he's going to say what he wants regardless of what you argue.

    Reach whats with the parentheses? Don't do that, it's kinda weird to read. It's hard enough applying your accent to everything :|

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have no idea what you're talking about Hellfire, but since you decided to respond to what I said in parentheses instead of what I said outside them, I'm guessing you were too pussy to admit to being wrong.

    Hello, Nil, I don't think we've met before. I use parentheses for asides that are not relevant to the main discussion at hand. I'm sorry if I'm causing you any trouble, but it's just how I write.

    ReplyDelete
  33. No. I was wrong I acknowledge that.

    Shit's just stressful and Fraps not that bad of a dude, and what you said was very uncalled for.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes, it was very uncalled for and also very drunk. Now, let's leave the issue lie.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well yeah, we haven't met. With good reason being that I'm not really allowed to talk to you directly unless it's a threat. And I'm. . .well you know the whole Revenant business has me ashamed of myself. My pride has been shot to hell and I know it. I can't bear to threaten someone, I feel like I'm talking to a mountain lion every time I try.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That and I don't know how to pronounce half the words you use in your blog. Yeah, I'm stupid, don't bug me about it.
