Small disclaimer: Any and all typos are to be ignored. As I'm sure some may have noticed from my comments today, I am really fumbling at the keyboard. Mainly because I was awake trying to keep a 24/7 watch on the lab door. -- Jack
Mr. Carter has decided to start making recording and sending them out to me. I am supposed to upload them, but I feel like torturing myself and typing. Here's your transcript.
[Audio Disturbance that sounds like a tap]
Is this thing on? Hello?
[Two more taps]
I hope it is. So, hello everyone. It's me, Carter, just figured I'd give you all an update myself. Who knows what Jack's doing.
[slight laughter is heard, followed by coughing]
Sorry 'bout that, I've been coughing up Azoth and blood for the past few days. I'll talk about that in more detail in a bit. So, I've gotten the news. Redlight's back. That's just what we all needed. I hope that when he's killed this time, he won't return. As for my situation: I'm locked in a room. I have enough supplies to last me a month. I hear constant whispering. And I've been coughing and puking up Azoth. I'm sure that Jack's said how he found me. Next to that body. I pretty much came to right as Jack came running up.
I've locked myself in here to protect everyone. And to try and find a viable way to get rid of the Azoth. A 'cure' if you will. Do I expect to find one? No. Prob'ly won't even get close. I have a few 'failsafes' in place just in case. I'm going to make one of these every week with progress updates and give Jack a list of comments from me to post.
On to business. I'm gonna make a status report of the lab and my progress. It'll hopefully follow the same outline each week. So, here we go.
It is Monday, July 29, 2013. The time is [short pause where I'm assuming he was checking the time] 10:33 PM Eastern Daylight Time. Current lab temperature is 75 degrees Fahrenheit. That's about [another pause, this one longer] 24 degrees Celsius. I think. I've taken blood samples from the current 'clean' areas of my body. 'Clean' describes the areas where there is no Azoth present when I draw blood. Those areas are: My feet, left hand, and entire right arm. The arm is 'clean' due to it's [short pause] 'special' nature. I have introduced Azoth into blood samples A though C. Using D as a control. From there I will try getting the Azoth to retreat from the blood. Other notes...
Other notes are: I have a failsafe that will 'purge' the lab in case of a complete loss of sanity. And, I know that is a very big possibility.
[short laughter followed by a sigh]
I feel like I'm talking to myself. That's all for now. Hope you all stay safe. End report.
So, there you have it, he's alive and kicking away at a cure. Do I think he'll manage it? Probably not. No one's made a 'cure' for azoth. Maybe he'll need to accept his fate? All I know is that I am to watch the door and keep giving him updates on the outside world. I'll be seeing you all around. I've got some other business to attend to. -- Jack
