>>3558596What the fuck Chimney's head is supposed to be? I can't parse it at all.
The answers I'm looking for is some kind of connection between their beliefs in their stories or characters in their bible or sermons, and the strange occurrences and figure(s) I'm encountering recently. Whether I find a connection between the two, I can determine if what I'm experiencing is either hallucinations which means I've lost my mind, or actually supernatural which means I'm being haunted. Either answer I get worries me.Really, I would do actual detective work to figure out how and why I moved from one building to the other, but these weird incidents I fear will impair that process, especially if they're getting worse. I need to know if what happened was paranormal or not before moving forward.
Chimney's head is actually a wine enthusiast pull taps waiters corkscrew, as for your question I incorporated it in the story.
>>3560156Chimney you should really wash your face, all that ash is not helping, at all.Being absolutely sure about this decision is a utterly unreasonable goal for the conversation. You can't remember the last time you were 'absolutely sure' about anything, you are not even sure you can be really 'absolutely sure' anymore. If you could Chimney wouldn't even be here.
(yeah! Let's join a cult. Who knows maybe with all the weird sightings and incidence we've been getting, they might see us as some kind of messiah even. That'll be interesting)Let her know that you're aware there are other people who can help with your problem, but after your therapist Izilla gave you those unlabeled pills that may or may not have knocked you out, and Skullirius had done unwanted experiments on you wanting to use your head to find potentially dangerous monsters and lose touch with reality, you don't know who you can trust to help you. At least with this religion, you'll find out if what you are seeing is supernatural, or if your crazy in which case you'll at least be with other nutjobs.
So we're really doing this, huh? Well, I'll take solace in knowing this won't be my fault.Chimney is probably pale in the face because she is very concerned about Brifrick. I think she see's Brifrick as her figurative younger brother just as Brifrick probably see her as his figurative big sis. In her perspective, she is probably deeply worried that she might be about to lose Brifrick, and there is nothing she can do to help save him.I have an idea on how Chimney could help save him though: since we are not having Brifrick do detective work, and instead having him take a paranormal investigation, maybe Chimney can be the one to do detective investigations instead as Brifrick is not mentally healthy enough to do it himself.I would ask Chimney if she can help Brifrick by doing detective work on what happened to him when he was attack and possibly abducted that day. She probably won't as she will probably be too busy with work, and her own personal problems, but if she can do detective work instead of Brifrick, that'd be helpful.If she agrees, we should probably give her some evidence, such as the bottle of pills for her to research what it actually is since it was unlabeled (perhaps keep 2 pills for yourself in your pocket just in case, but give her the rest that way if anyone asks, she can say you already took 3 of the pills, one for each day), maybe give her the walkie talkie (maybe not, but I'll let Brifrick decide whether to give it to her or not. Maybe she can trick Skullirius with it to get answers) and maybe the perfume we got from Crazy (again, I'll let Brifrick decide, but I think Brifrick should keep the perfume as I might have an idea for the future when the time is right regarding it)If she disagrees, oh well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I must apologize but I don't think that I will be able to do today's update to the story. I will be attending my extended families wedding which will be held outside of my town. Actually, it will be held outside of my country to be more precise, but none the less I am glad that more people are interested in participating in my small and silly story.
I managed to finish the update before going on my trip.
Having moral support from Chimney is great, but as we were told over the phone, the cards are stacked against us, so it is probably wise to spread out with a friend and cover more ground by having Chimney do a little bit of detective investigation while we do the paranormal investigation. (Probably especially helpful since as a chimney cleaner, she can look inside windows of specific buildings for clues while climbing.)Tell her to be discreet, as weird shit happening, paranormal or not. Give her any items you have that you feel might help her with the investigation, unless you want to keep them for yourself.Does Chimney do hugs? or is she too cool and hip for that? Maybe a fist bump will suffice instead before you both go your separate ways.ask this masked individual to keep the door open after you enter,
>>3563115I was hoping Chimney would go with us, but you raise some good points. Let's split up, gang!
>>3565469I wasn't really expecting the church of LSD. Is this even legal?Ask how much time it will take, we have a daily work to maintain. Choose the burning cactus.
(Huh, more pure white stuff. Actually, I think I'm overthinking it at this point though.)I like angry plant most. That is my #1 choice. It looks the most simple out of the 4, kind of the underdog of the three masks. I like rooting for the underdog.Burning cactus looks cool too. I mean, if hallucinations are going to take place, might as well be a cactus, like the peyote cactus.After choosing a mask, we should ask this person what their name is, and who the others are. Introductions are important. Also maybe ask if they have a bible you can borrow too if they have any here.
Angry plant sounds more like something Dario would wear. Lets go with Burning Cactus then.
If you recognize this person, then chances are she might recognize your voice. That said, Just nod quietly to her question.
>>3569581We are a janitor chances are we know her but she only ever registered us as part of the background.At least mutter a short reply.
>I never knew anybody using the burning cactus maskWell crude, we chose the wrong mask, and went with the least popular mask. Now we won't be part of a fashion fad and be an outcast. ah well, nothing we're aren't used to.>maybe they do see me as some sort of an important personDon't get a big head there. They probably say we're important to make us feel special. In actuality, they might say that to all first timers here to make them feel important. But I agree, stay vigilant and careful just in case.As for this person, a simple "indeed" should be fine.Look around. Does this waiting room have reading materials?
>>3570840>It all started as a joke but now I honestly belive that he is a demon king and I will be his demon queen!That is a uniquely novel way to make virtue out of necessity. There must be better ways to cope with n protracted and out of fashion joke. But what would be the fun in that? Right?And it is clear that everyone is utterly insane here, just give up on your paranoid concerns and anonymity.
>>3570868>And it is clear that everyone is utterly insane here, just give up on your paranoid concerns and anonymity.Yeah, we might as well give up on our anonymity, because I feel that even if we deny it, she will figure it out herself once she leaves and see's that the front door leading in this building is open as per our request. I mean, it is kind of unnatural to keep a front door open. Once she see's the door open, she'll probably figure out it is you and get mad at us or something for lying.BTW, who is Dervan? If he works for a law agency, he must have a business card that his girlfriend has. Maybe ask if she has and extra card you can take. After all, if he is an officer of the law, he or someone else from the agency might help you depending on if what you're dealing with is truly someone trying to kill you.
>>3570908Yeah, ask for some kind of contact information for Dervan, like a phone number. If he is a little bit mental enough to wear face horns as you put it to pretend to be a demon, he might not see your case as insane as other officers might if we told him your story (do not say out loud he is insane in front of his girlfriend though, that would be rude). We'll call him after our appointment here.Only concern is if he wants to be a demon, he might try acting evil as well, but maybe he is fine if he is working for the law...
>>3571518I am sure your friend is a very picturesque individual just like you and your boss, so I will politely decline if you don't mind.
Wow, for most your life, everyone has avoided you, bullied you, and talked about you behind your back. Now it seems like the whole town is trying to be a part of your life ever since you met with Izilla and had that occurence with wall whisperer. What happened? Remember when Chimney asked if you preferred small towns, or large cities? Maybe you should consider moving to the country after you get past this Wall whisperer monster.But yeah, prevedeta wants to see you, she'll have to take a number ticket in wait in line behind the medium you are about to see... and Skullirius... and Dario... and Billy... and Izilla.
Probably let her know if you don't find the answers your looking for here, you'll put seeing Prevedeta into consideration. She is a total stranger after all, and she is house arrested after all. Also ask why was Prevedeta house arrested. (and what medication she has in that box, but that might be too personal. I wonder if it is the same medication Izilla gave you.)
Well if she lives in one of the buildings (which one?) we work in, it is a given that we will run into her eventually regardless.
A mental breakdown, and self inflicted harm from a sharp object... That actually sounds familiarWe too had a small mental breakdown the other day, and then got attacked by a sharp object on our hand leaving a scar to prove it. Granted, it was giant scissors, and not a knife, and it is possible we weren't stabbing ourself but a monster stabbed us instead,But who knows, thinking about it, this now raises the possibility that instead of an assailant, we ourself may have stabbed our own hand somehow but only saw it as a monster stabbing us with a giant scissors because of a mental breakdown (question is, how would we have stabbed ourself? we don't have any sharp objects do we?)Or if we read between the lines, it is possible that Prevedeta herself didn't stab herself, but instead the Wall Whisperer is targeting her too and had stabbed her multiple times just like how he is targeting us and had stabbed us before. She or the officers might be covering that the Wall Whisperer attacked her because of how insane it sounds.I don't know, I think if there is a possible connection here that could help understand our broken brain/supernatural occurances, then we shouldn't leave any stones unturned, no matter how risky.Tell her We'll visit Prevedeta... as long as Prevedeta promises to keep her doors open when we eventually visit her.
Oh, Landa is still here. She certainly taking her time here instead of delivering that medication, huh? well in the short amount of time we still have her here, whisper to Landa quickly if there is anything important you should know about these sessions your about to take before heading off with Cornelia.As for Cornelia, I think we should try to be a little more polite and not make such comments like she is trying too hard to be bizarre with how she dresses. Granted, that is true, but we should try to keep comments like that to ourself to avoid possible accusations of heresy as It's probably a religious thing for her to wear that.If there is anything we should say to Cornelia though, maybe we should mention that we notice she isn't wearing a mask like everyone else in the building and ask why that is.
Before we forget, shouldn't we ask Landa which building and apartment number Prevedeta is in?
How did Prevedeta know you work in those other two buildings if she was house arrested. I wonder if someone have been talking about you to her, or if she has overheard you or someone else, or simply Landa just told her. Something to keep in mind.If Cornelia is deaf, then there is no point to be asking questions. So we might as well just get going then.
As a reminder, 1st building we work has 8 floors (where Crazy, the person who gave you the perfume lives), 2nd building has 10 floors (the one with the abandoned apartment Chimney said she would investigte) 3rd building has 6 floors (the building we were attacked by wall whisperer in)So that will mean that if Prevedeta lives in the second tallest building, she lives in the first building we work in, the same where Crazy lives. You mentioned that people are nicer to you in that building. Maybe it is because in comparison to Prevedeta, you are not seen as insane in their eyes?Before you leave, can you see who or what is on the cover of that magazine? You mentioned that one of the three people you saw after falling through the floor was probably someone you saw on a magazine. Perhaps you might see them on that cover to jog your memory?
>>3579187Oh good point. Yeah, don't disturb the person reading the magazine, but see if you can take a glance at the cover of the magazine from where you are standing.
>>3580036Up. Return the magazine or, if he is really done with it, put it somewhere around there.
hm, what a shame. I thought we had something there with the chance of seeing that person in your vision on the cover of that magazine.Seeing who the founding family are would be interesting for information of this establishment, but I wonder how long that will take, like does she mean she is going to show us a picture of the family, or actually meet the family in person. I mean We do have an appointment after all with that medium and it would be rude to keep that medium waiting. too bad Cornelia is deaf and we can't ask her that, but if she is offering, maybe it won't take too long...fuck it, give a shrug and give a thumbs up.
Might be a coincidence, but their faces reminds me of the Lime Lives Legion we met in our dream(?) Specifically that one person holding that flame that helped you visualize a portal.I guess we are ready now. Thumbs up.
Nope, can't think of any other thing to delay this appointment.So Maya Din is the owner of this place then, and she is also the one who will personally see our meditation through. ok. Lets try not to make this a big deal.Give her the thumbs up to show you're prepared, time for stuff to happen.
That's partly what we're here to find out, right?Do you remember getting letters from them throughout the years?
>>3583325Petty much this. Initially we didn't believe in magic, but we're starting to open up to the idea. keep this to yourself and do not tell her this: but even if magic existed, I get the feeling that it is something that mortals are forbidden and not allowed to even be using. I don't know, just a feeling. But then again, I also feel that the monster that is chasing us is also supposed to be forbidden and not allowed to even be interacting with mortals such as us in the first place, sooooo...
(I think Maya Din meant "seeing" behind the curtain, not "peeing", right? Damn typos, lol)Ask what are some examples of cracks in reality that other patients who come here had reportedly seen? Have multiple people among each other in certain events seen the exact same supernatural things or people or "monsters" as Dr. Skullirius had called them at the same time? Just asking to know how people here can tell if what they are seeing is supernatural, and not just hallucinations from schizophrenia.Also ask why people here treat us as a big deal, or someone very important compared to others here? Landa said we were very important since they sent Cornelia to bring us to the best medium in the house personally as Richard put it. Where and how do they get the idea someone who simply has a phobia of the concept of doors can see delusions, or cracks in reality, enough to be seen as special here? we don't see ourself as special at all really, just a janitor.and most important of all: why doesn't Cornelia have to wear a mask when everybody else here has to? It must make Richard very uncomfortable and awkward to see her without one. (That is a joke question, it's probably not the most important question to ask. don't ask that unless you want to)
>>3588027>why doesn't Cornelia have to wear a mask when everybody else here has to? Maybe because she is the only "sane" member of this organization, she is just deaf, not crazy. She could be just an employee, like the janitor or have some other menial job, thus not guest or member. Her deafness is a big plus, you can speak comfortably around her about the most esoteric of subjects of your mystery cult, or even some other unsavory/ilegal stuff, without fear.
So... when does the magic happen? :DI wonder if we can ask what other important persone we should know in this community. We already know Cornelia and Richard
>>3590735This guy has 6 fingers, we have 8. Don't give him any parts of your body. You don't have money and, probably, sanity to give. A cleaning tip maybe.
This place is said to use drugs and other hallucinatives for spiritual journeys. So how about we offer some of our pills given to us by our therapist? Maybe 25% of the bottle, or 50%.Just tell Maya Din you were given the pills by your doctor (don't use Izilla's name for her safety) but after you took one, it made you feel sick and you think it made you pass out for almost an entire day. The bottle wasn't even labeled either so you don't know what they do exactly.We probably don't need to take those pills if we are doing supernatural investigations and it makes us pass out after taking one.Also ask if you can keep the bottle and some of the pills for yourself to do some research on them.Who knows, maybe Maya will know exactly what those pills are and tell us.
>>3590764I'll support this choice. Offer our janitorial service for a spiritual journey. Sure it means taking out more time in our day, but you gotta work to earn your prize. Plus it will be a nice change of pace to work with a community of people who won't look down on you for your fear of doors. Hell, maybe that is why they were so insistent in having you join them for so long: they saw you, a janitor, on the news with a mental disability, and thought you would be the perfect hire to clean the mansion up.>>3591602As for the idea of giving the pills for the spiritual journey, while it is an interesting idea and kind of make sense with what this place is, I don't think it is a safe idea. I mean, isn't selling drugs like that illegal or something? I wouldn't want the narc officers to trace the pills back to you. Or worse, you might put somebody in a similar, or worst coma you were in.I think: only if Maya Din does not want our janitorial service for a spiritual journey, then we will think among ourselves about whether or not it is a good idea to give some of the pills to her. (And if we decide to give her the pills, definitely keep the bottle to yourself)
