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.
