Your universe is ending. These are the last days.

I made it. It hurts to type this. I'm dying. My fingers look so thin. Every bit of pressure is a stab of pain through my fingers. There are no mirrors. A small mercy.

I reached the center. I was so hungry and weak. I could see him and an army of the emaciated. They saw me and swarmed forward as fast as they could with their decrepit legs. I fought. Not well. It didn't take much to kill them but I was so weak and there were so many of them. I stopped trying to fight. I felt their arms grabbing me wrenching at me. Their teeth sinking into my flesh. I continued walking. Determination driving me. Heading towards The Herald. He watched me with the most sadistic smile I've ever seen yet he somehow managed to seem genuinely happy at the same time. I reached him. Just a few feet away and then I felt teeth pierce through my left thigh and I fell. I think I screamed but my voice was so dry nothing came out. He spoke then. His voice wavered wildly. Changing in pitch, tempo, speed... Sometimes it didn't even sound like a voice but just like the wind merely making a sound uncannily similar to words. This is what he said. "Your universe is ending. These are the last days. The End is Coming." My eyes closed I was bleeding and hungry and weak and they were eating me alive than he spoke again. "Your sister will die." My eyes snapped open and with a hoarse cry of rage I jumped up at him knocking him to the ground and closing my arms around his throat with all of my remaining strength. It wasn't much but he didn't even try to stop me. He didn't even look worried. The emaciated were still devouring me I was still dying but I was going to bring him with me. His face shifted then into the skull that had appeared momentarily in the video. "You are the third to touch." Then suddenly he disappeared. I tumbled facedown onto the ground and knocked out three of my teeth. At the same moment all the emaciated turned to dust. I propped myself up and now I'm writing this. I'm going to die. I'm bleeding to death as we speak. Even if I wasn't I'm too weak to path back out and I won't survive walking back. I don't know what happened. I hope Megan is free from his control. Regardless I'm writing this for her.

Megan, I love you. I'm sorry for leaving you like this, again. I tried my best and I hope it worked. I just wanted to keep you safe and let you be happy. Everything I've done has been an attempt to protect you. I'm so sorry.

Walks like a reaper through the fields.

I got attacked a few minutes ago. A bunch of emaciated people wandered towards me zombie like and tried to grab me. I punched one in the face and his head exploded into dust. The others kept coming. They were mumbling. They were so hungry. They wanted something to eat and drink. Something like me. I destroyed them easily their bodies nothing much more than dust and psychotic determination. The fight took a lot out of me though. A lot I don't have the luxury to lose. I still have a long way to go.

Into the desolation.

I tried to travel to the affected area using various travel methods but I seemed to be unable to enter the area itself. I came out right on the edge of the area. Here's an interesting fact. The Area is larger now. I don't  know exactly how much larger but it's an insignificant amount and it's still growing I could see it. The grass slowly dying as the effect spread. It was moving very slowly. If I had to guess probably about 1.5 miles an hour. I stepped into the area and immediately felt some kind of unnatural dread come over me. I could feel the blood in my veins freezing and the water in my body boiling. I was tempted to move back out but I needed to get to the center for my sister's sake. I continued going. In hindsight I probably should have checked if I was able to travel back out. It took three days without food or water to get as far as I am at current. I'm still not at the center. From what I remember of the area I'm still something like 50 KM from the center and I have no clue how I'll get back out of here. Hopefully if I kill this "The Herald" the effect will be lifted. Maybe then I'll be able to path out of here. Of course that assumes I make it. I'm already feeling weak. I'm more sturdy than a normal human I should last longer without food or water but this is still taking a toll on me. The effect seems to be sapping my strength directly as well. I don't know if I'll make it but I have to keep going. 50 KM isn't that far right?

Saturday, 26 May 2012


I've been thinking of heading back to the afflicted zone. I have to do something about this. I have to find out more. Whatever The Fears are doing is not working or at least not fast enough and I need to find out how my sister is involved. I was planning to go but then I had a visitor.

A woman arrived at my front door and let herself in without waiting for me to invite her. Of course fears don't generally care about invitations so I wasn't surprised.

The woman walked into the place until she found Megan.

"Ok what are you doing here?" I asked blocking her way as she headed towards Megan.

"Nothing much. Just checking to see what exactly he did."

"What do you mean?"

"Watch and find out."

She then moved me out of the way and went to Megan. "Hello Cold one"

No response. "Hello Megan?"

No response. "Hello Servant of The End?"

"Greetings Dying One." Megan responded.

"Well it would appear that your sister is possessed. Not in the me kind of way but more in the old religious demonic way"

She then got up to leave but I blocked the way. "No you're not leaving until you explain exactly what's going on"

She smiled. "That's so cute. You know you can't stop me from leaving if I want to. However, in response to your obvious distress I'll tell you something that will make you very happy. This is the first of three. We won't act until the others are identified but once they are we're going to destroy them and destroying The Herald should free your sister. So just sit back and let us handle it."

"That's not good enough."

"It's all your getting"

She was right there was no way I could stop her leaving so I was forced to take what I could get. Didn't mean I had to listen. 

I still intend to go to the affected area. I'm going to kill this thing and save my sister... again.

The Herald.

Ok so a very strange and disturbing thing happened today. There was a video somehow released to a local network from inside the affected area. Some guy or woman was filming near the house I was using. People are in the shot they all look incredibly emaciated and likely on the verge of death except one. In the center of a small crowd of humans is the strange man looking perfectly fine. He looks at the camera which really shouldn't be looking and we hear a choked gasp then the camera falls to knee height. It slowly pans up to the man's face and his face appears distorted taking on the appearance of a skull though still with flesh. At that point all the people in the shot start speaking. "We are The Herald. The End is coming. This world shall be scoured for it's arrival. You will not resist. You will accept. We are The Herald. The End is coming." Then the video distorts terribly and everyone goes black and white the people appearing like skeletons and then the video ends.

Of course that's not all. At the same moment they started speaking in the video Megan enters the room and starts speaking at the same time saying the same thing.

I am incredibly confused and worried now.

Tuesday, 22 May 2012


I've contacted a few of the fears but they are incredibly tightlipped about what's happening. Megan and I are currently in a different city.

So what do I know at current.

That strange man did have something to do with what's happening.

It's not a fear.

It's The Empty Cities fault.

The Fears are dealing with it and I should just leave it alone.

Megan is going crazier.

She's started mumbling things like: "I'm starving to death" "I can't get out" "Mommy why isn't Jeff moving?" and other disturbing things. Oh of course btw everyone in the area we left are dying very few escaped. See it seems that whatever it is affected an area of about 500 km in diameter As well gasoline and electricity don't work so any mode of transport except bikes no longer work. So the majority of people are trapped in this area slowly starving to death with no resources to sustain them. Quite a few have already died. They try to make it out of the area of effect but most don't make it. Attempts to bring resources into the area of effect results in the resources immediately depleting, spoiling, rotting, dehydrating, etc...

This is a very concentrated and sustained effort to end lives in one of the most hideous ways possible.

The famine.

There's no food left in this entire city. Whatever is happening is causing all the food in this city to rot or spoil or whatever else food does. Even if this isn't the herald of something bigger coming we can;t stay here or we'll starve. I'm taking Megan and leaving here now. I think I should probably go talk to some of the fears about this as well.

Like Death...

So today all our fruits, vegetables and meat are rotten and all plants within five meters of our house are dead. I don't know why but I assume that strange man had something to do with it. Megan has also begun to deteriorate again mentally but I don't know whether I can blame the man for that. It had never been expected that she'd get better.

When I say deteriorate I mean she's starting to hallucinate again. Weirdly though she's not stuck in her memories now. Instead she's now talking about what sounds like the empty city. She talks about cities and worlds devoid of any living thing.

A strange visitor.

So Megan is walking around now but she still seems dazed and randomly stares at walls every once in a while. On top of that, something... Well, some one really weird showed up recently. He was just sitting in my living room on the couch next to Megan. He was talking to her but she didn't appear to be listening. I couldn't understand what he was saying. It was in some other language I've never heard before. He looked at me and stood up. He then walked to a wall, turned towards me, smiled a smile full of blood red teeth and walked through the wall. At that point Megan said something about a bad smell and walked out of the living room.

There was a strange mold or something on the couch where the man had been sitting and on the wall he had passed through. Before you say anything it was not Choir. I know what Choir fungus looks like and this is not Choir fungus. I don't know what the man was but he was not anything I've seen before.

I don't think he hurt Megan though so no reason to worry to much.

Megan 2

Second Conversation.

Megan: Brother? What happened?

Me: You were gone for a while but I found you and I rescued you.

Megan: It feels like it's been years since I last saw you.

Me: ... It has.

Megan: ...! How many?

Me: ... Quite a few... It's not important though!

Me: What is important is you're back and you seem to be perfectly fine. (I didn't say the word sane but she does seem sane)

Megan: ... That is true.

Me: I think you should take one more day to sleep and recover and then hopefully you'll be fine enough to get back to normal.

Friday, 11 May 2012


First conversation I've had with my sister in, I don't know something like 13 or more years, and it went like this.

Megan: Brother?

Me: Yes, Megan?

Megan: I'm hungry.

Me: Ok...

Megan: I want pancakes, please.

Me: I'll go make you some pancakes.

... I can't tell if this is a good thing or not?

Peace at last.

So yeah it seems The Fears are smarter than I thought. A better layout of the plan. Step 1: FB goes to stop the rise and destroy the war aura. Step 2: TMM kills those who would carry on the war despite the war aura's death. Result success. Both sides entering into peace talks.

Step 3: (Optional) If Step 2 fails TWG takes control of key political people and ends war manually.

Step 4: (Optional) If Step 1 fails. Fears prepare for war against TB and ignore the war still brewing. It's no longer a priority.

Step 5 (Optional) If both steps fail... Fears prepare for war, CON desolates the war torn nations. Fear's assume control of planet.

Yeah so good thing we succeeded.

The leader of The Rebellion and The Vice President of The United States are now talking peace. The war should end now and things should go back to normal.

Speaking of back to normal. I think Megan is waking up.

Hail to the Chief.

So I just took on The Secret Service. I'll let you guess who won.

Guess yet? That's right me!

Wasn't easy though.

In fact just getting into the white house I got shot at twice. I guess it being war time they double security around the president or something. Or are there normally military snipers on the roof? Anyways managed to make a mad dash to the front doors get inside survive a surprise encounter with 3 heavily armed service agents and made it to a resting spot all without killing anyone. See this time I was told kill the president only. Not sure why but I follow orders. So from that point on I entered into some stealth mission style stuff. Slinking along corridors hiding and listening for footsteps as I made my way to the oval office... Where The President was nowhere to be found... Yeah turns out apparently he had been moved somewhere secret so I had to continue searching and sneaking around the entire building before I eventually found him. Deep deep under the whitehouse and past a long tunnel full of guards. Yeah I wasn't entirely sure how I was going to get through that without killing anyone... So you're probably wondering why I don't just path in to where he is and kill him. Well something or someone was erecting some sort of anti-pathing aura over the entire place. Not sure who. Don't really care. Let the fears worry about that. So anyways my eventual plan was as simple as it wasn't brilliant. I ran. Straight into a hail of gunfire. I just ran straight towards the door at the far end of the hall and hoped to god no one would get any shots that wouldn't be able to heal. Luckily for me of the 6 or so bullets that hit only one hit my torso. Apparently none of them were aiming to kill. They expected me to just go down. I'm tougher than that. I made it into the room and collapsed but I managed to kick the door closed and hold it closed with my foot. Which gave me time to heal most of my wounds. At that point however the president was now pointing a gun at my head. His family was there, cowering in the corner. That made me feel a little guilty about what I had to do. Anyways I stood up slowly raising my hands in surrender. Guy had a gun in my face what else could I do? Once I was fully up however a miracle happened. That aura suddenly disappeared. I don't know what happened but the aura was gone. In fact at this point I was informed the first part of the plan was successful. Oh yeah apparently I was step two of a two step plan with optional steps in case one of or both of the first two steps failed. One of the optional steps was the Convocation essentially turning the entirety of North America into a lightning scorched wasteland so it was very important that the first two steps did not fail. Anyways so I assume whatever step 1 was it was responsible for the aura disappearing. I played along for a bit regardless. The service men had now entered the room and there were all manner of guns now pointed at me. I waited concentrating... And then moved. I appeared behind the president jammed my fist through his back grabbing his heart along the way and thrusting it out the front. He took roughly two to three seconds to die. There was a lot of screaming and shocked voices and then I was gone. I was back on the lawn. I ran off into the darkness and headed back home.

Jobs done.

only one more target.

So my second to last target is dead. That was not easy. First time I've ever NEEDED to use the most limited power I was given. Now you guys are going to be kind of surprised and disbelieving when I say this but... I have access to what is commonly called The Godsway. Now I'm not really allowed to use it unless I 100% need to. I can normally access most of the normal servant pathways. The Godsway is when I need to get somewhere instantly and with no hassle. Now even if I wanted to I can't describe The Godsway to you so don't expect me to be a source of information on one of the Fears closest secrets. As for why they gave me access... Well with my status I can't be forced to rely on the power of any one fear. Since with their constant inner squabbling there's a chance I might be working contrary to any one of them and if I have to rely on that one's method of travel I'm pretty much screwed. So they gave me the one path that has no restrictions, except those they have imposed on me. So yeah...

Anyways, so I went to my next target. This guy was mafia or something. I don't know exactly but he was in the arms business and apparently he was now the main one responsible for supplying weapons to the Canadian Rebellion Forces. So I was too kill him and everyone else involved then destroy the building. So I entered killed two guards, or guys on cigarette break who the hell knows or cares why they were standing there, with ease and then snuck in. The place was filled with weapons. Now you may have noticed but I don't tend to use weapons. I make people kill themselves with their own weapons on occasion but I never use them myself. That is because I hate weapons. If you can't kill someone with your own body you don't deserve to kill someone. Fears are both an exception and included. Except The Archangel and possibly Smiling Man who both use weapons. Most of the others are weapons or have weapons as body parts.

Anyways so seeing all these weapons I may have actually taken it as a bit of a personal insult to my belief. So instead of my normal plan of sneaking around and picking people off I went up to the fire alarm and pulled it. I then began slaughtering people as they began running out. Of course this didn't last and I was now facing a small army of men who all knew I was there and who mostly had guns. I spent quite a bit of the next few minutes hiding and and ambushing but even that wasn't working very well. Some Servants can use their paths even in the middle of a fight. I envy them. It requires concentration for me to access any path but The Godsway which just requires... Well can't tell you that. So you can see where this is going. I continued ambushing people until I was cornered and then Godsway-ed to the other side of the facility. With that they no longer knew where I was. Some had even seen me disappear. So they were now confused and a few were afraid. It made the clean up much easier. Once that was done I headed to the office of my target. He had undoubtedly heard the gunfire. In fact he was probably gone but I wasn't taking chances. I used a random path to appear behind his desk instead of using the door. Good thing to. The guy hadn't run he was waiting with a gun trained at the door. I grabbed him by the neck from behind and choked him till he died.

So the fears will be annoyed by my use of The Godsway and probably more so since I'm sure I accidentally let some kind of secret slip here without noticing.

Either way though time to blow this place to hell and then go attack The White House.

4 out of 6 targets.

Those were the easy ones. No real defense. Two of them were sleeping. I broke into their homes and tore out their hearts without them ever waking up. The other two were slightly more difficult one even put up a fight. One was up writing a letter or something. I didn't check what it was after I was done. When I entered he was startled and got to his feet and tried to run. I chased him down and eventually caught him. He begged but I had orders. Snapped his neck.

The other one saw me the moment I arrived and A. Had a gun. B. Called guards. That was fun. I am not invulnerable. I had to hide from the gun. It was like Batman. I hid and picked them off slowly one by one until he was all that was left. I showed myself a few times letting him get shots off. Letting him waste ammo. I watched, waited, observed. Once I figured out how many shots he could take before he could reload I made him waste his last few shots and rushed him while he reloaded. I reached him stabbed my hand into his throat and tore out his spinal cord predator style. It was fun.

Last two will be quite a bit more difficult.

Mostly because one is The President of the United States.

This'll be interesting.

The Job.

So I'm sure the majority of you know about this war going down. A peaceful protest sparks into a riot. The Police kill some people the people fight back. Riot becomes a slaughter. Then a disease outbreak is met with undue force. (An entire town was razed to the ground and the diseased were killed. People went crazy at this point. Deciding that the government was going crazy and started a revolution. The Government called in help from The United States and now it's becoming a full blown war between Canada and The United States with allied countries talking about stepping in on either side.

Yeah it's a mess. I'm sure the fears are involved somehow but I haven't been paying that much attention with the whole Megan thing and the war hasn't been impacting normal fear business that badly so I've largely ignored it.

Well the new job is to kill certain individuals on either side of the war. Apparently The Fears want this war to end and as fast as possible. They have pinpointed certain important targets who upon their death will severely hurt the war effort on both sides essentially forcing a peaceful solution.

So I'm off to kill some random people. I'm out side the first targets residence at the moment.

Saturday, 5 May 2012

I'm worried.

She still hasn't woken up. I hope they didn't do anything to her. There are so many things that could have gone wrong.

I got a new job. I can use this to calm myself. Just have to kill a few people. Nice relaxing work. Maybe when I get back she'll of woken up.

I can only hope.

Friday, 4 May 2012


So it happened. We attacked. It seems these people were smart. They heeded my warning. We only ran into one or two stubborn doctors who had refused to leave. They were both killed. Not by my hand. We found her room and entered. There she was. She hadn't aged at all. Neither had I. Both of us just as we were the influence of the Fears.

She looked at me and tilted her head. She muttered my name and then turned away and began talking to herself. I nodded to those who had accompanied me. The Nightlander's raced forth. There was no where for The Shadow to run. It's protection was also a dead end. She screamed as The Nightlanders entered her head to drag The Shadow out and I had to stop myself from reacting to her pain. This was necessary.

Soon her screams stopped and she fell. For a few seconds I was worried she was dead but as the Nightlanders left I saw she was still breathing. I brought her back to the house she's sleeping now.

Hurt what you love.

So immediately after The bar I became a huge ass. I mocked her about murdering that child I told her my story but immediately after I threatened her and let her get shot. Then I abandoned her. Why? Why would I do this?

Because no matter what happened this was not going to end well for her. It still won't. I figured that with everything else that was going to happen her finding out that her brother had become a horrible monster would be one of the worst things. So I tried to turn her against me. Disconnect us. Even if she found out I wouldn't be her brother anymore. That was the intention mostly. I threatened her honestly like stated it was The Nightlander's orders but I knew it wouldn't work and so did they. So then Archangel territory. I had actually expected the shadow to stop all the bullets. I was not expecting it to show up later. I was also not expecting it to leave her alone after. I had expected it to save her and drag her away somewhere like it had before. I figured I could watch her but stay out of things. Work on the side to lead The Nightlanders to The Shadow and everything would be happy. This did not work. Instead The Shadow brought me with it when it left. Brought me to a random house where we had a bit of conversation. It knew something was wrong. It knew I was working contrary to it's intentions it wanted to know why. So we conversed. Somehow I don't understand how. There was no time distortion or anything as far as I know but Megan arrived during our conversation. The Nightlanders followed her. The Shadow fled leaving me and Megan and yeah everything she said happened minus everything about the palace and stuff. That was all in her head. We were just in a simple house or hotel room or something. I don't remember exactly. Afterwards I was tempted to run away with her. She knew me now she still trusted me. She didn't hate me or anything. Everything I had tried had failed. She still loved me as her brother. I was heavily tempted to take her away and flee with her somewhere. Shortly later we were traveling together when The Shadow appeared. It grabbed her and left with her before I could stop it. I've been searching for her since.

So there you have the full story. As best as I can tell it. Now after searching for so long I have found her. I am going to get her and I'm going to end The Shadow. It won't bring her back. He has undoubtedly rewired her mind but I can keep her safe and maybe I can do something to help her.

I have reinforcements to deal with him.

By the way. To the people who have my sister. I'm sure you're reading this. I will give you one chance. Do not try to move my sister I am watching. Leave her there and all of you get out. I only want her I do not need to kill any of you. However, I will not hesitate if you get in my way.

So last chance leave. Don't be there when I arrive and you will live.

That is all.

The Muffin Man.

Bar Fights

There's nothing really to explain here. Everything happened as she explained it. Someone else covered The Bar itself and the identity of The Doll isn't important. I don't need to go into detail about what happened to the woman in the bathroom. There's really nothing to say here. I just really like remembering it. Damn that was fun. Yeah I do actually enjoy killing. Especially those who deserve it. I mean I enjoy killing anyone and I always try and have fun with it. I try to make murder an art form. I mean that eye looking out of the throat thing was hilarious but I really really enjoy killing some bastard who really deserves it. Yes I only killed one person in the bar and that was a pretty tame kill but that thing with the beer bottles to the eye. That was beautiful even if it didn't kill him. For The Archangel's goons not killing them is worse anyways.

Then again we say that but they probably don't actually enjoy The Archangel's afterlife anymore than the rest of us would. I doubt he really treats them any better.

I remember someone. There was this guy he claimed to of spoken to one of The Archangel's forms. About The Afterlife. Said it felt like being buried deep underground. No sights or sounds just endless pain and pressure and the feeling of suffocation. They also described being taken by The Archangel for use. They said it was like being filled with fire and that their thoughts were just a constant symphony of their own screams.

I don't know if any of that is true. The guy wasn't exactly reliable and he failed to answer a number of questions in regards to the subject. Regardless though I imagine that to be an accurate depiction in general of what it's probably like. Although I imagine it is probably infinitely worse in reality.

Next up: Why was I such an asshole to my own sister?

Tuesday, 1 May 2012

The Snowglobe

I really can't explain this one. I'm pretty sure The Cold Boy was responsible but no clue why. His intentions in this whole event have been ambiguous at best. He helped The Shadow by Turning Megan but then abandoned her and it was assumed he had turned against her and The Shadow> It was assumed that he was working with The Archangel but aside from the possibility of the snowglobe which contradicts that idea he didn't really do anything else. In fact aside from turning her and the snowglobe his entire interaction with Megan is minimal. He's a bit of an Enigma.

Of course she was allowed to leave regardless. So The Snowglobe wasn't really that important either. God that whole event confuses me. I was told to follow her and I watched her accidentally murder a child. I was rather upset especially since later she murdered an entire town. Oh yeah this was interesting. I had no idea what was happening here. I watched her hiding and doing weird activities and then suddenly murder everyone.

I don't know how to reconcile the real world and her delusions but I can say that the place she wandered into was... Well sort of an experiment. This was actually uninvolved but the entire town was invaded by the Choir. I don't know their intents but I assume there was some delusions on the choir side and The Shadow messing with her memories. All I saw though was Her sleeping in gardens, talking to a door and then sleeping in an empty house and finally killing everyone. I'm not ruling out some Choir involvement in my own view of what happened so I guess I can't really explain things. I assume though that any weirdness such as the people existing only when she needed them to was a mixture of choir or The Shadow's delusion.
