Last You'll Hear from Me

So, I'm gonna go ahead and call it.  I'm pretty sure the Doctor's dead.  Some other guy from his floor too.  I don't have any evidence, but I've been looking for two weeks and they're both gone without a trace.  Even broke back into Cairo's room to look, everything's still there.  Can you believe none of the people in charge of the building have realized he's missing yet?  Guy must not have had any friends at all. Tragic, but I'm glad to see the Slender Man saved me the trouble of bringing Cairo down.  So before I move on, time to finally explain everything, starting with what the good doctor was lying about.

Cairo was never trying to help you in the first place.  Since the start, or at least, very near the start, he's been working the Slender Man's agenda.  He's not a runner or a fighter, just a proxy who the Slender Man left completely sane so as to have a fully articulate pawn to infiltrate the community. He started by pitching you a false ideology, reinforcing the idea in your heads that knowledge was power and could be used to survive against Him, and then providing you with such information.  This was, as they say, a trap.

The Slender Man has a need to feed.  A need that is constantly growing.  Since his target diet is limited to people who know about him and then shrinks when he consumes, the pool needed to be replenished.  Cairo's job.  His little informative vlogs never really produced anything groundbreaking... but they make an excellent starter's guide for people thinking their joining in on a big piece of fiction.  The sole purpose of Cairo was to spread knowledge of the Slender Man as far as he could.  To restock the pool.  To infect.  To condemn to death the people he was "helping".  So why would the Slender Man turn on him?  Did he try to betray him and run?  Was he not working fast enough?  Was his purpose served and over with? 

I don't know, because I AM NOT A PROXY.  I'M A RUNNER. I posed as one in an attempt to expose Cairo and what he was doing.  If I had just come right out and said all this, who would have believed me?  I would have just been some random troll and ignored.  I had to get everyone's attention, and try and get a message out to you without Cairo knowing and the traditional codes and puzzles of a proxy were the perfect vehicle to do so.  Cairo knew I wasn't on his and the big man's side, but he had to play along to maintain his disguise as a runner. A few of you got bits and pieces of the message but no one put it all together, and when Cairo realized what was in the messages he made plenty of efforts to misdirect you on the meanings of the messages.

"The truth is just a rule that you can bend." (Lies)
"You violate the oath." - "First, do no harm." (Medical ethics, Hippocratic Oath, Dr. Cairo)
"Liar by One OK Rock" - (Lies again.)
"The exchange of masks." - When I finally exposed him, our roles (masks) would be reversed.
"The Card Puzzle" - Was self explanatory if you look at the solution Drage posted.

A proxy disguised as a runner and a runner pretending to be a proxy.  It's a funny world, ain't it?

With that done, it's on to the next for me.  It's been real difficult staying in this same area for so long, a change of scenery should help.  My hometown's not far from here, maybe I'll swing in.  I know that learning about this thing won't save me.  Running... probably still won't save me but it will make me last longer.  So, I'm about ready to wash my hands of this.  I won't be posting here again.  I will monitor it just in case Cairo pops back up, but I've got some other problems to worry about.

- Not so fearful anymore,


P.S. - My talk about the Youtube password was a bluff.  Cairo didn't write that one down, so I can't get into it.  Otherwise I'd take the channel down to stop it from infecting people.  But I can't win em' all.


What's up Doc?

It's been almost 10 days.  What's the matter?  No witty comeback?  No threat?  No acknowledgement of my words simply to call them lies?



Fine.  Then I'll provide the narration.

In case you haven't figured it out, I'm not some average proxy.  Not some mentally dominated twat under the big man's thumb who likes to, as you say, tackle fucking everything.  No no.  I've got free will to spare, and I dOn't NEed To talk lIke this Most of thE time.  (One time means nothing.)  Truth be told, the only reason I did what I have up to this point was to get you people to pay attention and work out your grey matter, because it needs to be in shape if you want to survive.

Cairo's made you all weak.  He's handing you the answers.  Enabling people to TLDR; their way out of training themselves.  Let's say you're victimized next.  Who's better prepared to survive... someone who read Dreams in Darkness and Seeking Truth and riddled everything out for themselves or someone who just skimmed through the Compilations?  That's not his only crime, but it certainly counts for something.

As for the Doctor himself, I'm surprised so few of you have taken noticed of his absence.  I assure you, I've done nothing to him, aside from steal the password out of a notebook of his.  I've lost track of his whereabouts myself.  Then again, I don't pretend to understand the big man and why he does things. I'm looking into the situation.  Another guy disappeared at the same time, I think I'll start there.

Either way, I'll pull back the curtain soon enough.  Doctor, if/when you come back, feel free to delete this post.  It'll only help dig your own grave.

And for the sake of clarity, I'm not Cairo's benefactor.  I'm yours.

Last night, I finally managed to gain access to the Facebook group Josh Rallus has been running.  If whoever is in control of it now is to be believed, Josh is dead.  The group name has been changed to "THEOBITUARIES".  A few recent posts:

1600 AM -- 03-29-11"

08-22-94 -- 03-27-11"


And the group description was changed.

KEEPER         [X]
OTHER           [_]

I haven't had time to read through the chat logs and everything else, but between what I did read and what I've learned through Cowboy Ghostie's own research (thank you for this) I feel like I have a handle on what's going on.

The Angel's Game mentioned in the notes received by the group is some kind of battle between supernatural forces... forces which appear to lack bodies of their own, and must thus inhabit the bodies of humans, possessing them.  The names refer to:

DWELLER - The being who inhabited Josh, left him messages during the times he blacked out, and occasionally took control of him in the facebook chat with others.

KEEPER - Josh Rallus, now deceased. 

CREATURE - I must assume, the Slender Man.

OTHER - Unsure

DREAMER - Alana, now deceased.


Neither the Josh nor the Dweller was in control of the account last night.  The entity whose identity I'm unsure of claimed that following Alana's death, Josh attempted suicide.  The Dweller tried to keep him alive, but failed, and both of them died as a result.  The name of the facebook account was then changed to "Emet Rotter".


Who is this entitiy?  And who is the entity in control of Austin, acting as bag head?  I would assume OTHER and COLLECTOR, but I don't know which.

Going back through my inbox, something else occurred to me.  Back in January, Josh contacted me looking for help.  I sent both him and Austin information that I felt might help them.  Josh's response was normal.  Austin's... I'll just post it.

"The other two won't listen to me. This thing is hideous, efficient. It speaks to me sometimes. It tells me things. Terrible things. Haha. It knows so much. It wants to consume. HAHAHAHAHAHA"

Perhaps Austin isn't inhabited by an entity at all.  Perhaps he's a proxy under the Slender Man's influence.  His dress and behavior patterns are consistent with it.  I never heard back from Austin again after this.


Emet.  We share a moniker, but I know not if you are with or against us.  I will be watching closely.

There's also been major developments with Zeke Strahm's investigation of Damien O'Connor's case. Too much for me to handle right now.  Going to immerse in school work to stop thinking about it for a while.

It's Alex Kralie's birthday.  I feel like something might happen tonight.
