Why Didn't I Think of This!

Jack here, I feel like removing Mr. Carter's Dead Man's Post. Just because there is still a chance.  And Ms. Med, I will not send that guy your way until I have exhausted every available option. I don't think Mr. Carter realized the fact that I wouldn't let him die so easily...
   I have a new plan, here's the outline:
Get a hard copy of the blog in it current state. Includes every comment and post.Ask for help from a certain person that Mr. Carter is trying to protect.Bring her back with me.Show Mr. Carter the blog posts/comments that were made after his death.Have her help me in convincing Mr. Carter.Bring Mr. Carter back onto the Pathways.Lead him home.Watch as I create a major paradox.Hope for the best.    Is this a sound plan to any of you? Because it sure isn't to me.--Jack

Death Comes for Us All Eventually...

Well, I've put it off long enough. Here's my Dead Man's Post! Yep, that's right, I'm dead! That feels so weird to type. After the events of April 11th, I decided now was the time. I guess if this post isn't up in time then Jack will say a few 'smart' comments. Sometimes he actually can be worth his weight. Or whatever you call it for an entity that doesn't follow the laws of time, space, and others that we haven't invented yet. (or so he tells me) But anyways, let's get back on topic! I'm dead, so Med (if you are still alive at the time this post appears) you will receive my research in about a month. You'll receive it from a man wearing a forest green coat with a red hat on his head. He's trustworthy, Alan had recommended him. He'll find you pretty easily with Jack's unconditional support. I hope the deal that he agreed to will be followed to the letter. I guess that's it, what else is there to say? Other than,…

Failure...

I am back. According to this computer's date, I have been gone for only one day. Which makes sense, because I would have had to help an almost-dead person through the Pathways. That would have increased the interval to about 2-4 days. It obviously didn't happen.
   As you can tell, I was unable to rescue Mr. Carter. I got to the correct time and place, but something wouldn't allow him to live. I need a new plan. Any ideas?
   Like I said to Ms. Med, I did an autopsy on the body. (I later did another on the body I recovered from my botched attempt-for-a-rescue)  The results:
He died in a time period of mere minutes to an hour after his last post. The one where he cut off abruptly. He was not able to finish that post, or post comments after it. He just vanished momentarily.Attached to his brain (of both bodies) was an odd black, tar-like substance. It tried melding/merging with me after I touched it. It was also similar to a cancerous tumor. It has also disappeared.He had …

He's Dead

Jack here. This is bad, very, very bad. Mr. Carter is...well, dead. He's dead. I can't really understand, because that means that the Treaty has been broken. Oh, you don't know about the Treaty. I'll explain.
  Back in the ancient Egyptian 'prime,' there was a Pharaoh who had heard of a 'blight' that was plaguing neighboring lands.  In response, he formed a group of his most trusted. They were to collect as much info as possible about the "blight's" leader. We all know who he is. The Pale One. This group was unable to find much information. The Pale One eventually took the Pharaoh's reign by masquerading as a god. In his new position, he demanded many sacrifices. (Which has been depicted in some hieroglyphs) The group knew of this trickery and called to their gods for help. Guess who responded. My grandfather did, and he brought me with him. He gave the job to me: protect this group, and help them expand. I was overjoyed. I called th…

Freaked Out

So, I wasn't going to post until Friday but something's been on my mind lately. A disturbing thouht, what if He is actually here to help us? Protect us? What idf we're wrong about Him? Maybe He isna't so bad asfter all? And we're al beingh too idiotic to notsis and tring gto kill Him. What if I trie to talsk to Him? What woiukd hap

I Needed A Good Laugh...

I'm still not fully healed yet. (that's obvious to me because it took me 5 tries to spell 'healed' correctly. So, I figured I'd watch some comedy videos on YouTube. Here's one that has some of Dane Cook's audio with a familiar figure in the sketch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9yO9BnYbPg . Enjoy! I'll be back Friday with the next journal entry.

Until Then, Carter

Journal Entry #1-Jamie's First Entry

Just got access to my account again. Apparently someone isn't content with hacking into my account, no they have to change the f-ing password too. I don't know how I'll deal with these...inconveniences.
To Med, I like that Cuil theory. To Kendra's friend B, look for Marcus. I think he might be dangerous though.To Anon, I see. I hope you can reveal who you are sometime soon.To Jack, If I see you skulking around outside again, you'll have an angry person running at you with a knife. Just a friendly heads-up.      Now onto the business of the night: Jamie's journal. It has a lot of entries in it. I'll post the more important ones. Hopefully by the time I post them all, I'll have healed up and will be ready for the trek into the woods for Alan's notes.

     Let's begin:

What a Day...

Well now, how's my week been? Not so good. Jack's back. My ankle is still messed up. I coughed up some blood earlier. And my head feels like it's about to explode. Still. After 4 days! Never again will I try to have 'tea-time' with Mr. Slim. Jeez, I keep screwing up typing simple words.
     In other news, I have a few questions: To the Anonymous commenter who said that M was alive: How do you know? Who are you?To the next Anonymous who freaked out on my post about what happened: Who are you? Your way of typing seems familiar.To the Anonymous that mentioned my quick healing: Yep I was at school. Just with a twisted (possibly sprained) ankle, a lot of pain, and I had to stop at the bathroom a couple of to cough up blood. I would rather have stayed home, but I needed to keep that semblance of 'everything's normal.' Don't want too many people asking questions. To Med: Get well. Stay safe. And thanks for annoying Jack.To Rose: It sounds like you fa…

I Am Back...

Hello there. Did you really expect me to give up? That password was easy. Some of you are so comical. Take Ms. Med for example. She calls me a fairy...a fairy. I am, for the first time in my existence, speechless. A fairy...how did you? Irregardless, I got your last message Mr. Carter. I have to say your...demands are a bit extensive. Do you really expect me to do that? If I remember correctly, Mr. Alan left many warnings about me. And seeing as how he is dead, you know have all of his research. Including that of me. That is, of course, if you are planning on running the Gauntlet and collecting said research.
  Can you all please elaborate on how you all seem to know so much about me? 'Known trickster' I do not believe that we have met, you must be basing that on rumors and hear-say. I'll be around for a long time. I also want you all to know that my warning still stands. You know what one. -- Jack

To Wrap Things Up

Well, I finally got around to that Dead Man's Post. It's set for two weeks from this today. Every Sunday, I will re-schedule it. Also, the profile picture that Jack left as a present, won't go away. I've tried changing it about 20-some times today, but it's still here. Oh well, guess I'll just deal with it. It's better than some ugly cat that a certain unnamed person (is that even applicable with him) uses...
     I also have changed my password, so hopefully Jack won't have his way with my account again. I read some of his messages that he left me. I'm debating on releasing them. Under normal circumstances, I'd ask the council, but since they're all gone now...I'll just have to take Alan's advice: forget, restart, rebuild, research. That's going to be hard, but it needs to be done. The Network's been around since Ancient Egypt (possibly before?) so I'm not going to let it die out. if anything happens, you'll all …

Great...Just Great

Well, I'm back, guys. As you can tell, my account was hacked. I've changed the password, hopefully that'll help. Woke up this morning in my bed. Found a note next to me. Here's what it said: "Hello, Mr. Carter. I hope you are well. I will be watching, but do not count on my help.--Jack     P.S.  I helped with your injuries, I don't owe you any favors any more." That confused me. But explained how a twisted ankle, few bruised ribs, and cuts 'magically' healed overnight. All I have left is a scar on my back, looks like a whip mark. Does anyone know who this Jack is?
     So personal death count is at five people who I trusted. They were part of the council. Yes, they're dead. There were seven of us, now there's only two.
     The story behind that. I was the 3rd person to join the council, C3. The two others I became good friends with. After about a month, we got a big influx of others. Our numbers hit seven. C1, Alan, intelligent man.…

Good News, He Is Alive!

Jack here, I have some good news for you all tonight. Mr. Carter just stumbled in from the woods. He looks like a dead man walking, but he is very well alive. Even if he wishes he was dead. He also looks very peaceful right now while he is asleep, if you get past the cuts, bruises, gashes, and what-not. Very peaceful indeed, though. I will look after him and help...doctor his wounds. He will feel better in no time. However those favors that I owe him, he can consider them cashed-in. I also am not the only one watching Mr. Carter. There is another entity lurking about 18 meters from the window. If I am allowed to guess, I would say that he is very angry. Just thought that you would all like to know, after all, some of you seem to care about him. Even though you don't really know him. -- Jack

Story Time with Jack

Well, I promised a post, so here it is. I will tell you a story. A story about my origins. Maybe this will answer your questions?
  I am Jack. I do have many, many talents. Yes, I hacked Mr. Carter's account, but for good reasons. Reasons which, unfortunately, I can not disclose at this time. You want to know more? Keep reading.
  I came to exist in this world on the exact day of my grandfather's death. My father told me many stories about my grandfather. Some were funny, others disturbing. And a few made no sense at first, because the story placed my grandfather in times that were long ago. He had many talents as well. In fact, the same talents that I have. You see, my grandfather and I have a lot in common. You could say that we are one and the same. He had many nicknames given to him throughout his life. I have inherited those.
  I hope that answers all of your questions. Including: No, I do not have pointed ears. They are rounded like your ears are.
  Lastly, Mr. Carter…

Someone New...Hello Everyone!

Hello everyone! You don't know me...yet. But I know all about...you. Your schemes, and (most importantly) your lies and half-truths. Yes, Mr. Carter, I know all of your 'little' secrets: the ones that you are trying so very hard to hide from them. Even from the few who are so deluded to actually think that you can be trusted. Either you tell them, or I will. And if that happens: let's just say that your council might be a bit displeased as well.We will meet again, no matter what precautions you try to take. I will be present here...until death comes for his final dance. I hope you like your new profile picture Mr. Carter, I took my time selecting it. I feel that it is oddly...appropriate based on some of your 'research' and 'theories.'

Troubling News...

Late post again due to some troubling events. Yesterday, the council met. In case you don't remember, the 'network' that I'm a part of has a council where we trade research, and decide what to do. I explained it better in an earlier post. Anyways, we had a meeting yesterday (Friday) and got some bad news out of it. Apparently, there's a 'leak' of info which has led to that creature and its followers getting valuable data. We all voted the same for the first time since February. The verdict: no release of information/theories until further notice. In layman's terms: I won't be able to share the theory that I was going to share. That'll have to wait.
     Instead, I'll use this to answer some comments. Feel free to read them all: Anonymous, "He's not dead. I promise."-I hope you're telling the truth. You actually got me a little excited, although there are still many doubts. But the thought makes things a bit easier.  An…
