Well for every post where I get to be awesome, a post where I get my ass kicked shall follow shortly after. That seems to be how things work around here.

So Kenny has a better account of what happened but to sum it all up, I had the pleasure of meeting the Cold Boy. The son of a bitch decided to say hello by chucking an icicle into my right shoulder and freezing my legs. In hindsight, trying to take a Fear that I know jackshit about head on was probably not one of my better ideas, but that is beside the point. I thought I was screwed until Kenny smashed his staff into the little bastards face and shattered it. I got to admit, that kid has developed one hell of a swing.

Luckily that made the ice melt, which made me bleed…a lot. What Kenny failed to mentioned was that he putting pressure on my wound while I was swerving along the road. God, it was a miracle we weren’t pulled over.

Anyway, Kenny decided to continue on his journey after this. Where ever that may be. It wasn’t bad having him around. He was pretty good guest and it was fantastic to finally have some company around here. I got to admit, the whole master/apprentice thing was kinda’ fun too, and it looks like it has done him a bit of good.

We had breakfast at Denny’s, went and got him an internet card, and I drove him far enough to get past all of the construction on the highway before we parted ways. We said our goodbyes, did one of those classic anime friendship handshakes and wished each the best of luck.

On a side note I slipped him some cards, just as a little memento ( some with silly symbolism, some with awesome pictures):

The strangest thing was that yesterday, I found an envelope at my doorstep. Given my track record with things being left on my doorstep I was kind of hesitant to open it. Once I got up the nerve to do so, I saw that inside was $1000 along with a note:

For your trouble. Thanks for keeping an eye on him.
-          A friend.

As surprising and confusing as this was, I am certainly not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. So to whoever left me that, thank you.

So where does that leave me? Well, it’s back to my normal (and I use that word loosely) life, tending to my arm, and preparing for whatever may come my way. It’s kinda’ funny, once you realize how nice it is to have a guest, this place feels lonelier once they leave. But fear not, I have Mr. Painkillers to keep me company. They always know how to pull through when I need them the most. 

You know, I think I’m forgetting something but I have no idea what.

Huh, oh well.

    1. the woman that has been held captive by the OVERSEER, who seeks to sacrifice her to the Silence to save all of the world.

      you vowed to save her.
      because you fell in love with her.

      now is a good time to look back at all of your previous posts. if you can even see them.

    2. never mind, i can't find them. i wish i could make you remember, but they've disappeared.

      just think deeply about it. maybe life will work for once.

    3. It is always easier for those not directly connected to such dimensional bleeding phenomenon to remember what has once transpired. In time, you too shall forget. It is all merely a part of the tragedy that is Project Destiny.

    4. or was. it seems to have completely disappeared.

      was anna....sacrificed? it feels as though she is gone.

    5. Dimensional Bleeding is rarely so simple, nor is any Phenomenon which evokes it as a means of existence. It is impossible to determine how many iterations of Project Destiny have existed or will come to exist. It is an unstable cataclysm which will continue to manifest and subsequently eliminate itself until an iteration is successful in either accomplishing its goal or tearing our world apart. Such Phenomenon are the most dangerous of its kind.

      And yet 'Our Hero' seeks to toy with these very same forces. One can only hope he destroys himself before the rest of us.

      But I am ignoring your question. The entity which served as 'The Key' may still exist in some fashion within this world or they may have been striped from it as an existential anomly. It is impossible for me to say for certain which. However, even if The Key has continued to exist and you were are to locate it, it is highly unlikely that they would be the same person as before. Their memories and experiences would have been effected similarly to your own and that of the Raggedyman.

    6. how have i been affected? if you mean the disappearance of the blogs on tumblr, then i see what you mean. i still remember, as of now. It feels as though there is a hole where anna was, but if i search....i feel nothing. if she is now a different person i may not be able to 'find' her, but i don't know the extent of my ability to 'sense' things, if it's really a thing. i dont have much proof in favor, nor much proof against, so it's a hard thing to say.

      i did, however, have a feeling, a while back, that while anna was running, she was beginning to change. and then she disappeared.

      do you know what this might mean?

  2. The disappearance of the blogs, loss of memories, etc... these are all symptoms of the world trying to repair itself in the aftermath of the latest failure of Project Destiny. However, due to the effects of Dimensional Bleeding, the world is unable to fully heal. As a result, traces of that which it has attempted to erase remain. Some like yourself will remember, while others shall not.

    For example, while I acknowledge the girl you refer to as Anna as "The Key," I have no personal recollection of her. The Key is a constant throughout each iteration, as is The Observer and the other Titled. Having witnessed several iterations of this Phenomenon, I am able to retain knowledge of The Key and its role, but the individual who carried the title is a mystery to me. Memories of the old are replaced to service the newest iteration. Can you say for certain that Anna is the only version of The Key which you have encountered?

    As for your feelings, I would prefer not to speculate too deeply upon something I have not personally experienced. However, judging purely by your explanation, such an occurrence would coincide with the healing process we have been discussing. As the seams of Project Destiny unraveled and iteration began to collapse, ones such as The Key would begin to undergo alterations as the world repairs itself. In the end, this "Anna" either had their life rewritten to suit a new role unrelated to Project Destiny or was progressively erased from existence entirely. In either event, it would follow that you would no longer be able to "feel" the person they once were, as most, if not all, of that person no longer exists.

    1. I see. This seems to be a case of history repeats itself, or so it sounds from what you've said. Will there be a new 'Key', a new "Anna" as it were? I can't say that i've ever met a 'Key' but i'm still new to the world of... paranormal. I began my expedition about a year ago.

      What's funny is that all of my blog posts relating to Anna are still there. or they were as of yesterday. Will they remain as long as i remember?

      I must say, i have a sudden sinking feeling...something terrible is about to happen.. or so it feels
