Something's Not Right

Echo pressured me into posting this update - she says that it'll be useful, but all I have to report is... weirdness. Might as well start at the beginning.

I slept for a really long time - like, unusually long, maybe because I was forcing myself to stay up before - and when I woke up, the laptop was on to an empty screen. Echo... seemed really tense. She didn't yell or anything, but I think she's worried, and she didn't really explain why - when I asked if I had moved around, she seemed even more weirded out.

I clearly don't remember what I seemed to have done, but when she tried to explain it, it just came out as a mess. I checked, and my blog and dashboard are... fine. Everything's working, all the blogs I follow show up, though Echo seems iffy about me being on the computer for long in general.

At least I don't feel as tired or nervous anymore, you know? Sleep is really good for something.


  1. least there's no white text this time.

    Can you see this post?

    That might be why Echo is worried...

  2. ...You didn't link anything, so. And I don't see any posts since "Currently Imprisoned" and there shouldn't be, given I was asleep. :/

  3. Oh jeez. No, Storm. I think it's invisible to you...

    Let's try this. I'll type it out for you here. Tell me if you can see it:

    i can hear them rustling in my head
    ware, oh ware, who is chosen, marked as sacred?
    Blood on the trees
    shh, shh, no more pain soon

  4. ...Shit. I can't see anything.

  5. Oh...then I think we've found why Echo's weirded out...

  6. Stormy, there IS a way around the perception filter, i think, but it's kind of complicated. have you seen my latest post? all the info is there.

  7. I read it.

    I can't do that.

    I'm pretty sure that the way to beat it would hurt me, and... I'm not in pain right now. For the first time in a while, I feel alright.

    I really don't want to ruin that good feeling.

  8. then don't. if you think you'll be happier without knowing, then by all means, go with your instincts.

  9. Well, this is quite the mystery.

    You have no memory of that post and can't read it or see it? Something's blocking it from you - almost like it's not meant for you?

    My question isn't why or who caused you to write it...
    My question is who is "them" that rustles in your head and who is the chosen, marked as sacred?


  10. Well, I can't say I had any memory of it - I know I was sleeping.

    Not meant for me... I hadn't thought of that.

    I guess the rest of it - you said something about the post, didn't you? It's all scrambled.
