The second significant chunk of Everyman HYBRID ran from November 24, 2010 to March 20, 2012, and is comprised of the videos “Update HUB” through “Twenty-four Months”. Here Vince, Evan, Jeff, and Damsel watch their connection to James Corenthal’s uncannily similar children unfold as their losses mount higher and HABIT, the mysterious entity implicated in Ryan’s death and every clue trail, recruits players as “rabbits” in a cult-like series of trials for unknown purposes. He gradually reveals his true nature to players through clues meant for them alone, and the rigorous correspondence they keep with him and the EverymanHYBRID boys sometimes displays conflicting loyalties.

Descriptions on this wiki contain spoilers. Main channel videos are denoted in bold and side channel videos are not; watching the livestreams and player-created videos is optional. This page links to sections of the CANYOUSEETHEWORDS and Corenthal Letters side pages whenever they are meant to be read.

Rabbits who had successfully applied receive the following e-mail:

WELCOME, RABBIT#XXX. AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTION. YOURS.

EverymanHYBRID phantom tweets:

GREAT TO SEE THE ENTHUSIASM - BUT SOME OF YOU FOOLS HAVE NOT PROPERLY APPLIED

EVEN SOMEONE AS BUSY AS ME NEEDS A HOLIDAY. ENJOY YOUR FAMILY WHILE YOU STILL CAN, RABBITS. PLEASE… TELL THEM WHAT YOU'VE BEEN UP TO.

MAKING ME TRAVEL ON A HOLIDAY. SERIOUSLY. RABBITS # 151 - 153 HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED. DO. NOT. FUCK. WITH. ME.

THAT IS ALL. IF YOU HAVE SENT IN AN APPLICATION, YOU WILL BE PROCESSED. OTHERWISE,YOU'LL HAVE TO WAIT YOUR TURN. NO MORE APPLICANTS, YET.

EverymanHYBRID tweets:

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, HYBRIDS, regardless of the messed up happenings of late. Thanks for sticking with us through it all. [E,V,J]

And to our international HYBRIDs, celebrate the poultry-based imperialistic holiday by laying claim to your neighbor's swimming pool! [J]

Stop the press. Some HYBRIDs have been telling us that they're confused (even more-so than we are). Ustream tomorrow night, 9pm EST. [J]

Hide your kids, hide your wife, but bring your questions. Cause we're answering everybody up here. [J]

Streaming in four minutes.

  • EverymanHYBRID LIVE! 11/26/10: Vince, Evan, Jeff, and Alex set up a UStream to answer questions. Jeff is Rabbit #002, Vince #003, and Evan #004; Alex is not allowed to join. They are still planning to find Damsel. They cannot see any footage in the Centralia and SEVENTRIALS videos that they did not consciously include. Jeff and Alex’s parents are dead, but Alex pretends they are still alive. The Corenthal papers Jeff once had were the same ones found in the boxes, except for one he had not read about a patient named Jeffrey. He considers the name similarities an unsettling coincidence.
    • Minutiae: Posted November 26, 2010. Additional information: Alex has not been back to his room, which has been silent. Jeff is setting his phone to receive the phantom tweets. Jessie wore a hamsa in previous videos because her family is Jewish, and it was different from Jessa’s; also, Jessie and Evan are amiable exes. The group still has plans to distribute the wristbands, but have not been provided enough of them. Jeff works at a hospital.

THE DAMSEL: A girl from Princeton (~15 minutes away from us) who was friends with Jessalyn before… I [Jeff] became too reactionary and told the police that she was the last person to see Jessa alive, etc. etc. and that was the breaking-point for them to commit her for evaluation. We're going to help her. Soon.

On December 3, 2010, bebravenow on UnFiction receives the Corenthal Christmas Letter in the mail alongside a toy Christmas soldier. Corenthal writes in 1976 that he and his wife have become family to the “Mining Town Four” he treated at the Fairmount Children’s Home now that they apparently no longer experience their mysterious ailments.

“Damsel”: “I’d be… I’d be fucking stoked if they weren't releasing me today.”

  • The boys break Damsel out of the hospital where she is being held, Jeff tackling a security guard and Vince and Evan leading her to the car. Damsel is confused and annoyed at them for reasons quoted above.
    • Minutiae: Posted December 5, 2010. There is audio distortion as they run to the car, and some believe that the Slender Man appears out of a far window. Jeff mentioned before that he works at this hospital. The description reads:

Even if someone were to see the "Damsel" video, it seems that it couldn't criminalize us of anything at this point. [HospitalFire.wav] [J]

  • Posted December 15, 2010, audio file “HospitalFire.wav” has Jeff report the deaths of housekeeper John Mayner and security guard Glenn Eisen at his hospital workplace. Nursing staff have informed him that Damsel was discharged days before the flash fire that killed the two men in her former room. Somehow, the report of their deaths at 5:55 PM, December 5 contradicts the video’s timestamp of them rescuing Damsel at 6:00 PM the same day.
    • “The Free Drink Refills” is a charity band at the hospital, hence their poster shown in “Damsel”. Reversed audio hides Damsel’s real name: Stephanie.

CANYOUSEETHEWORDS posts December 19: Steph says that the name “Linnie” sounds vaguely familiar. She has noticed the writing on her blog’s background and mentions that she and the boys are experiencing minor ailments. She also posts a video to say that she is only updating the site to answer questions now that she has found a group that understands her.

Addition to the Update Hub:

EDIT: She has been living with us (mostly at Evan's house) since our little adventure. Her name's Stephanie. She's alright once you get to talk to her. But I guess you all knew that before me, eh.

The Angora chat was a player-based chatroom that occasionally saw appearances from Jeff. In his December 27 first appearance, he discusses how fictional characters are mourned differently than real people and announces plans for a new UStream and taking back Alex’s room. He also links to this fan-made music video for “Revival” by Deerhunter.

HABIT responds to Verdett (UF) about what happens if no rabbits remain by the end of the Trials:

YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF: WHAT ARE YOU ALL PLAYING FOR, TO BEGIN WITH?
IF NO CONTESTANTS REMAIN, THESE TRIALS WILL COME TO AN END.
AS LONG AS THERE ARE MULTIPLE RABBITS, THE GAMES SHALL GO ON.
HOPE I HAVE CLEARED A FEW THINGS UP.

  • December & early January: “Steph… Steph, that thing you were talking about… I saw it, Steph. I saw it… he’s real; he’s right here. You’re right, you’re so right; what the hell does he want? I think he's following me… Steph, please pick up-”
  • Since Steph joined the group, Vince and Evan have found this panicked and distorted voicemail from Jessa on her phone. She can provide no answers about stopping the Slender Man. On one night, the boys examine blood in the snow outside Vince’s house, apparently from “Mittens”; the Slender Man appears soon after.
    • Minutiae: Posted January 14, 2011. Vince is wearing a purple wristband at the end. The video cuts to black a few times and includes an out-of-place clip from their break-in at the hospital. The description reads:

A few notes:
Yes. We had a brief run-in. A blocked number called Vin's cell and mumbled something about "keeping Mittens warm."

Mittens was Vince's family cat and had passed away a few years ago (six). The call ticked us off so we checked out the spot behind Vin's house, just into the woods, where they had buried the cat.
As you can see, we found some somewhat-fresh blood, obviously not belonging to the previously buried cat. It's grave was tarnished; we returned the next morning to fix it.

(And no, Evan did not charge this time. However, we all spent that weekend with flu-like symptoms.)

We also later confronted Stephanie about the saved message on her phone. She was going to tell us. I can understand why she was afraid to mention it.

In my eyes, it's simply closure.

Happy new year, whatever that means. Hell, we're still breathing and mostly smiling. -Jeff

EverymanHYBRID tweets:

Going live, HYBRIDS.

  • EverymanHYBRID LIVE! 1/20/11: The boys livestream to answer questions. They feel safe at the moment and are preparing to show what happened when they reclaimed Alex’s room. They intend to post another video from the USB drive containing “78of76.avi”, and they have received a file from viewer CoffeeCollie containing the “Morse code videos”. For Trial One, Evan buried one of his knives while Vince buried a limited edition copy of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. They don’t consider HABIT a threat.
    • Minutiae: Posted January 20, 2011. Steph is not present because she is at her school to be reinstated for her absences. The voicemail on her phone was from early September, and she is currently staying in Evan’s basement. The boys are able to hear the sirens and sounds of children when the Slender Man appears. The boys have heard descriptions of the “leaked videos” but cannot see them.
  • 77of76.avi: “It’s like you’re just going around in circles; you don’t get anywhere. No progress is made. You go in, balls to the wall, but it doesn’t fucking matter. You just wind up in the same fucking spot.”
  • Evan, Alex, and Jeff walk up to the big tree at Baldpate Mountain, now barren as though it were winter.
    • Minutiae: Posted January 20, 2011. The “Day in the Life” video was taken in the summer. Clips from that period of time cut into the video to emphasize the anomaly. Jeff notes sirens that can be heard in the background. The description reads:

Thank you, viewer oops_ur_dead for reminding me.

This was on the same USB that contained "78of76.avi" - until recently, this video wouldn't play and was deemed corrupted. On oops' recommendation, I checked again and it played "normally." -Jeff

  • Vince, Evan, Jeff, and Steph play a CD sent to them by viewer CoffeeCollie, who had made it in order to show them the “Morse code videos” they are otherwise unable to see. It starts with a clip from the Introduction but then cuts to black with static audio. The four of them experience a sort of past life regression with what they say next, apologizing to the doctor for disappearing from home while playing a pirate game. They fall unconscious and wake up eight minutes later with darkened eyes and blood from the nose (and in Evan’s case, ears).
    • Minutiae: Posted January 28, 2011. The song in the one clip that plays is “Who Could Win a Rabbit” by Animal Collective. Jeff and Evan report hunger, as if more time than eight minutes has passed. A shadow passes over the group during their regression. The video essentially confirms that Stephanie’s name was the one redacted on the Corenthal papers. The description reads:

The first bit is self explanatory. We thought… maybe it could work. Thank you, Ben, for your help. For trying. But I don't believe those three seconds of disjointed clips are what everyone's been referencing, eh.

After trying to figure out what exactly happened, we decided that the camera fell off its surface, hit the ground, and recorded a black screen for eight minutes. In the meanwhile, we… were "influenced" by something and received various wounds.

We don't remember speaking those bits of discussion or know what the conversation was from.

The word "doctor" stood out.

I'll upload the file on our mediafire account. See if it works for you. Look for the link on Twitter.

Thank you, HYBRIDs, for everything. But we don't know what to fucking to do. We're going to look for some facts. Some hard evidence. One thing at a time. [J]

EverymanHYBRID tweets:

Here's the file that our friend Ben sent us. The so-called "hidden videos" - we tried to watch it. You'll see. [J]

  • morsecodevideos: The opening commentary from CoffeeCollie plays exactly as it did in the last video, but it plays all of the Morse Code videos normally instead of cutting to black.

26 minutes remaining, quoth the YouTube. [J]

  • Jeff, Evan, and Alex re-enter Alex’s room with weapons in order to reclaim it from the Rake, noting a terrible smell inside. They traverse the darkened crawlspace in his closet much farther than its projected 3' x 3' size until they find themselves in the basement at Baldpate Mountain with no sign of where they entered. They call Vince to pick them up. Two days later, Jeff and Evan return to the room to find it pacified; however, a solid wall has inexplicably appeared where the crawlspace was. Jeff finds a cut-off note on the floor, reading “’s- ssword- to the-”.
    • Minutiae: Posted February 3, 2011. Evan lost his knife in the crawlspace and claims to have found it sheathed on his bed afterwards. The clip of Evan and Jeff kicking down the door at Baldpate is shown when they leave the building; during the Fairmount regression in the last video, Evan insisted that they didn’t break down a door when teleported away from home. They wear the same clothes here as in “77of76.avi”, including Alex’s helmet. The description reads:

This was the video we talked about in last week's live broadcast. Obviously, we got home alright, Vin picked us up no problem. I don't know how we got there.

Alex's room is… normal. Again. (Normal?) Something made a path for that damn thing to get out. That crawlspace sure as hell didn't continue on when we moved in.

Shortly before we sealed off the room, you'll remember that something messed with my cache of "what-in-the-hell" letters, concerning a particular doctor. That piece of paper (that I found in Alex's room on our return) was the "clue" that taunted me in Centralia, that was missing until now.

I still don't know what it means. Time will tell. Alex and I are safe (maybe that's why it was so damn quiet this whole time). The others are just fine, too. Thanks for sticking it out with us, HYBRIDs.

We're going to be looking for some answers. Very soon. [J]

On February 17, 2011, TheNightmareComplex on UnFiction receives the fourth hidden box out of seven in the mail as his reward for Trial Two. The package contains Alex’s orange fur-lined hat in addition to the scratched wooden box. It contains part of the Centralia Note: “shade’- pas- t-”; combined with the last piece, it says “shade’s password to the”.
This Corenthal Letter from 1975 describes how the four children only exhibit strange behavior in unison. Most recently, they had disappeared to Memory Town, Pennsylvania after playing a “pirate game”. One Officer Matten of the local police department found them, informing James and Maryann of their whereabouts. They met at a restaurant in a snowstorm, eventually gleaning information from the children. While playing the game, they were led astray by a figure that sent them there in an instant; they use the exact same words here as the HYBRID group did in their trance.

SEVENTRIALS tweets:

  • Rose.: “This is kind of hard to say, but I think that we should say it just to document it so that you guys know. We were going to go question Jessie about Dr. Corenthal, and we decided to hold off a bit just because we found out… it’s with a heavy heart that I tell you this… that her grandmother was murdered recently.”
  • Evan calls Vince out on recording the above message for the audience.

SEVENTRIALS responds:

@EverymanHYBRID NOPE.

On March 20, 2011, Lookbehindyou on UnFiction follows the phantom tweets to Memory Town, Pennsylvania and discovers the fifth hidden box out of seven. It is a treasure box containing coins, matchbox cars, a machete, tarot cards marked with names, a copy of the Everyman morality play, and a Corenthal letter.
The letter from 1971 describes Jeffrey’s experiences with night terrors about his family’s deaths. His father killed his mother and sister, telling Jeffrey that the Man had made him do it before pointing the gun on himself.
Everyman is a medieval morality play that represents mankind’s struggle for salvation through allegorical characters; the Everyman is abandoned by all except Knowledge and Good Deeds, and only Good Deeds stays with him during the final judgment from God. The copy of the play in this box has been altered with three new characters written in: the Voyeur, the Firebrand, and the Guardian. The new writing states that these figures must succumb to tragic fates in order for a greater cycle to begin. A character called the Doctor appears exclusively at the end of the original text to deliver the play’s ultimate moral about Good Deeds and salvation; this is where [EXIT ALL] has been added.

EverymanHYBRID tweets:

Yeah, I'm in the chat tonight. What the hell's the deal with that box. [J]

Evan's coming in, too. [J]

Well, that was… somewhat helpful. [J]

Jeff and Evan enter the Angora chat for March 20, the one-year anniversary of EverymanHYBRID. Evan is only concerned about the Corenthal papers, and the machete from the box was apparently not his; also, Steph is staying at his house. Jeff still sees no real connection between their group and the Mining Town Four, and he had not previously heard of the Everyman play. This chat contained surprise appearances by Noah Maxwell of Tribe Twelve, Zeke Strahm of Seeking Truth, Doctor Cairo of Compile TRUTH, and Specter of Observe and Terminate; they are all aware of their similar experiences but do not get many answers.

EverymanHYBRID tweets:

Heading out to Jessie's in a bit. She gets back from her family's today. We'll keep you informed. -V

Glad to see he feels fine. For fuck's sake, what a night. [J]

  • The boys go to Jessie’s house and she shows them a binder of information on James Corenthal. It leads them to a storage facility unit where they find a rocking horse, more documents, and a black box device that Vince initially mistakes for a radio. The door shuts on them with Jessie outside and the Slender Man appears, causing Vince to cough up black fluid. The footage goes to black and white when an older man opens the door again. He places the rocking horse, now outside the unit, in the spot where the boys found it and utters the above apology in its direction before leaving. From this time loop, Corenthal apparently cannot acknowledge the HYBRIDs.
    • Minutiae: Posted March 21, 2011. The binder contains a photograph of several children where one of their faces is circled. There is a map pointing out Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, where the bag was found. Jessie’s family also has a home there. The description reads:

After the whole ordeal, we grabbed everything we could and left. We have a lot to sort through.

And Vin's fine, by the way. But Evan's final statement sums up my feelings on the matter. (Jessie opened the damn door with no problem moments after. She had no idea what we were talking about.) -Jeff

EDIT: Despite what Jeff says I am not fine I've got a headache that hasn't let up since last night. That and the fact that we saw that man….who I can only guess was the doctor. Has left us all a bit scared and puzzled. We have to keep pushing forward. -V

EverymanHYBRID responds to viewer e-mails about the black fluid:

First of all Vin didn't bleed, that shit that came out of his mouth was blackish brown and yea we noticed the son of a bitch was in there with us he was 2 fuckin inches away and as far as him having to do with Vinnie puking, well, hmm yea I'd say that it's pretty clear who's fault that was. We took a shitload of stuff from the boxes and been lookin through some we might make a video of it or not i don't kno –Evan


It's Vin, I can tell you with all certainty that whatever I coughed up was not blood. It was completely black and tasteless, the consistency was a strange mix of syrup and ash. I don't know what happened but I am sure HE caused it. I haven't had an episode since then. –Vince

  • Interview with the Hybrids: Vince and Jeff are interviewed by a viewer named Harold from the channel Slayerboy90. He asks about how they improved their Slender Man effects between the fake and real one, to which Vince responds that the channel’s events are actually happening to them. Jeff has moved into the background at this point to answer a call from Alex.
    • Minutiae: Posted March 23, 2011. This video went largely unnoticed for years. The description reads:

I did this interview with the Hybrids, sans Evan, almost a week or two ago. Thank God, Jessie's back and fine from what it seems. I was quite worried there.

-H

grieck (UF) writes to EverymanHYBRID:

Specifically for Jeff. Actually I'd prefer if only for Jeff's eyes, as it is a touch rude of me to ask in the first place…
By now you surely have seen the latest Corenthal Note found. One regarding a Jeff, as was expected to be seen eventually.
Of note though, is that it shows in eery detail the deaths of his family.
Now you realize how silly Hybrids can get with our theories, and our thirst for information. We've been recently pouring over everything again with the contents of that Chest found in mind. We've been making connections, or trying to at any rate, between everything going on with you four (Steph, Evan, Vince, and Yourself) and the Mining Town Four.
We are onto something, as another Hybrid will be sending you an email with the main theory sometime soon, but are still missing too much info. As such we realized one glaring detail that was too personal to ask previously, has now become relevant in light of that note. Being personal and definitely not something one should ever ask, no one wanted to volunteer save myself.
(And yes, that entire build-up was me trying to justify asking this, and possibly failing due to it being 4 AM.)
If you're okay with it, we would like to know what happened to your parents.

I'm not quite ready to tell that… story. I will though, Glenn. And I'll trust it to you. -Jeff

April 2011

  • Slappa' tha' bass(ah).: Alex goes to a show by The Free Drink Refills as they perform a cover of “Hotel California”. It cuts to Alex at home, promising new videos and showing off Sparky’s new bed. In the same venue as before, Alex plays bass for a cover of “Higher Ground” by Stevie Wonder with three other boys.
    • Minutiae: Posted April 2, 2011. The video skips on the line “My head grew heavy”, which also happened when “Hotel California” was played in “Ashen Waste”. According to captions onscreen, one member of The Free Drink Refills is named John Mayner Jr. and is listed as a student; the housekeeper who died in the hospital fire was named John Mayner, and the listing of Dr. Rossum on guitar is consistent with Jeff’s previous description of the band. The description reads:

  • One step forward, two steps back: “I mean, it’s like…there’s some articles about him fleeing and then in others he’s being honored as a guest… in Hamilton, too! I don’t know what the hell to think about this guy.”
  • A girl from the library named Lexi has directed Vince and Jeff to the microfilm. Alex plays a recording of his mother’s voice to pretend that she just told him not to go with Vince and Jeff; they discuss the unhealthiness of his grieving process among themselves. The library trip turns up a few results about how Corenthal went on the run from police. Jeff calls the Mount Pocono Police Department to ask about Officer Matten, and they inform him that Matten committed suicide a year ago. Alex tells Jeff and Evan that the Rake is back, and they try to stop him from entering the tool shed where Sparky was. It attacks Evan before they shut the door, leaving several deep gouges on his arms; he is convinced that it left Sparky’s body in there as a lure for Alex.
    • Minutiae: Posted April 21, 2011. The song playing in the car is “Eli the Barrow Boy” by The Decemberists. Evan draws attention to the black box device they discovered in the storage unit; he says that it was “rick-tick-ticketing” in the Slender Man’s presence, channeling the first box’s “Rick Tick Tick Goes the Man in the Woods” phrase. The description reads:

Optimism only leads to let downs.

Notes from the library: Microfilm Collection

[J]

The Microfilm Collection contains five news reports about Doctor Corenthal, altogether chronicling his decline from respected doctor to wanted man. After unclear implication in the deaths of some of his patients’ parents, the most incriminating one from 2005 recounts how security footage of a riot in a Lambertville Eatery implicates him in the deaths of at least a dozen people. He is since believed to have hidden out in Baldpate.

I'm just trying to "play the game" and stay alive in the tournament. I have no agenda other than that. I hope you guys can see what I did just as a power play move and not some slight against the series or other rabbits.
I will not be upset or even surprised if I get eliminated. I just needed to know that I did everything I could and didn't just roll over and die for HABIT.
Good luck to everyone.

He receives an envelope with purple tape whose contents specify that it was not sent by the Observer, but instead an “old connection”. It reveals that in 1995, Doctor Corenthal met with Milo – Noah’s cousin who was found dead of suicide after being stalked.

Well, at night, something else happened, and we edited that clip- the events of that night - onto the end of this video that Vin and I thought was ready to be sent out. But after what happened, we thought you guys would want to know what we did that night. And that’s what… that’s what you’ll see at the end.”
  • HABIT has sent the boys a clip of the Rake crawling through the grass without further context. When they plan a movie night with Alex, Daniel, and Jessie, Alex insists that a sock puppet is actually Sparky. One of the pictures from the storage facility shows Doctor Corenthal with Evan as a child. On the Fourth of July, the boys are with Daniel and Alex until they go to investigate a strange sound. Alex sees the Slender Man and Evan goes after something with a machete. When the boys come back covered in blood, it turns out that they killed a deer without understanding why.
    • Minutiae: Posted July 12, 2011. Vince is in now in a relationship with Lexi, the girl from the library. Jeff says that they have made no progress in getting the black box device to work. It is presumed that HABIT caused the deer incident in addition to possessing Evan in the “Ryan and the SEVENTRIALSOFHABIT” video; apparently, Vince only watched and Evan punched Jeff in the face for trying to stop him. The description reads:

What we've been doing for the last two months. [J]

  • -.-.: “Nineteen years go by, you forget… for a moment I thought it was all real.”
  • One half of this video is a conversation between the boys where Vince suggests that the Rake did not kill them because the Slender Man needs them alive. The other half of the video comes from another plane entirely. The boys sit in a garage around a circle of candles, Evan in handcuffs, as they speak of “iterations”: the cycle of reincarnation they experience and are watching their EverymanHYBRID selves experience. This is a space of awareness for them between iterations. They know that HABIT takes over Evan’s body and have just found out about the Seven Trials he is planning for this iteration of them; Evan describes how HABIT, in possession of him, once killed Corenthal after surviving a shot to the head from him. Evan goes after Jeff for the keys to the handcuffs.
    • Minutiae: Posted July 12, 2011. The title is Morse code for “C”; backwards, the Morse Code titles of these videos spell “CHAOS”. Other clips include Jeff and Alex playing “Who Could Win a Rabbit” on ukelele, their parents with Jeff by the tree at Baldpate, drowning footage, Steph, and the Rake.

On July 15, 2011, MyOrphanedMind (Rabbit #108) receives the Jester’s Prize in the mail for her birthday. Originally meant for FullRoundAction (Rabbit #052), the package contains Evan’s Bioshock 2 shirt, a rabbit necklace, a Corenthal letter, and the final piece of the Centralia Note: “-iable –ator”. Finally: “shade's password to the unreliable narrator”.
The undated note comes from a student of Doctor Adam Roberts in the University of Florida, who had asked them to assist a colleague of his. Roberts had this student examine an abnormal form of radiation emitted by a scrap of black cloth and represented by a lowercase sigma (σ). Roberts’ colleague, Corenthal, asks the student if it would be possible to build a device that detects the radiation: the black box device from the storage facility.

HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT: [links to Password Protected Files]

Players entered the password “PITY133”, as was gleaned by the Pale Fire clue and the final piece of the Centralia Note sent to Rabbit #108. It yielded a save file code for the game Minecraft which lead to a level in the game with signs reading “GOOD LUCK RABBITS” and “THIS PLACE IS YOUR TOMB PASSWORD: x8162005.” Entering the new password revealed the Tribe Twelve connection letters.
The two letters come from 1995, when Corenthal has been ostracized by the medical community and is reminded of the “Mining Town Four” case by his colleague, Adam Roberts. He met a young boy named Milo Asher, whose reason for jumping from a park ranger’s tower had been because “Man made him do it”. Milo’s descriptions of his dreams reminded Corenthal of his own children; there was a moment when Milo said something about them before again forgetting that they existed. The Mining Town Four had been dead since 1981, but Linnie had moved on with her life. Upon leaving Milo, Corenthal came across a scrap of black cloth that he would send to Adam Roberts to investigate its strange properties.

Addition to the Update Hub:

SHADE'S PASSWORD: (Two files posted on HABIT's Twitter. The torn piece of paper that we've been coming into contact with, from Centralia, to boxes, to our friend Noah, eventually assembled into a password and unlocked these files. Turns out it was a map for the game Minecraft.)

Nick was trapped in his own home, prevented from committing suicide by the Slender Man and HABIT, who had possessed him and forced him to kill his family.

  • Sigma: “He doesn’t really know I’m here right now, so if you could not tell him, that’d be great.”
  • Alex is at Evan’s house against Jeff’s wishes, having his blood tested for the Sigma radiation detected by the black box device. It responds to Evan’s blood just as it had responded to the Slender Man, but does not respond to Alex’s. Black-and-white footage cuts into the middle: Jeff tells Alex not to meet with Evan, hence Evan’s surprise that Alex was even there.
    • Minutiae: Posted July 27, 2011. The song playing in the background at the start is “Unnatural Selection” by Muse. The bandage on Evan’s arm from his Rake attack has purple tape around it.

@EverymanHYBRID Oh, didn't you know about those guys? They've been around a little while - we just ignored them. We know our EMH crew!

EverymanHYBRID responds:

@Stoicheio Thanks for seeing through it, heh. It's a bit unsettling the extent to which they're acting as if they're us, though. [J]

@DereckRN Mad? [J]

As far as I'm concerned, quiet's good. I'll say it a million times. See you all soon. [J]

Apparently, YouTube's notifications are on the fritz…. we uploaded our conversation with Noah Maxwell.

  • Noah: “Right now we are on our way to pick up someone named Noah Maxwell from the train station. I don’t know if any of you have heard of him, but he seems to be having the same predicament, or be in the same predicament that we are.”
  • The boys assist another group of guys with car trouble on their way to the train station, the car inexplicably turning on by itself again. They pick up Noah and take him to Vince’s house to compare scans of Corenthal-related materials; other than an unrelated document from 1990, the storage facility contained nothing chronologically close to the 1995 document Noah received from HABIT.
    • Minutiae: Posted September 17, 2011. The group that the boys help are named Chris, Alex, and Jessie. The Slender Man briefly appears in the back of the car at the end of this meet-up, and then again at the train station. When Vince refers to the Milo photograph as interesting, an annotation onscreen reads “Way to be decisive, Vinny… [J]”. The description reads:

Firstly sorry for the bit of the hiatus we have had lately. It is hard to keep all you hybrids up to date with everything that we have working on. We are trying our best.

We wanted to see if there were any parallels in our findings. it seems there were a few more than we were comfortable with. We obviously haven't even scratched the surface but there is something going on that is bigger than we thought. just watch.

What prompted this
File referenced in video
Note, the letter seems to reference a text that was not included in the storage facility's papers. [J]

Noah Release 1: 1990 document from the storage facility in which Corenthal describes a strange dream he had of different scenes cutting in and out of each other. One involves Linnie, who has left her caretakers William and Rose to find out about her former siblings.
Presumably, a new iteration of her was the woman killed by the Rake in “Cops Checked, No Body”.

  • Northern Trip Footage: This is the same video of the meet-up, but from Noah’s perspective. The Slender Man appears on the plane and outside the train station right before the HYBRIDs arrive in their car, and the Observer leaves a note at the end informing Noah that “we were there”.3

Continuing the tradition. Happy Halloween, everyone. [J]

November 2011

  • In one recurring scene of this video, surveillance footage inside Jeff’s room shows him holding Jessa’s necklace and attempting to overdose. In another, surveillance footage in different parts of Vince’s house shows him following his dog after it detects the Slender Man; he falls down the stairs fleeing it and coughs black fluid into the bathroom sink before disappearing. In yet another, Vince and Evan visit Lexi’s apartment only to find the door open, lights off, and room ransacked. Evan goes to the knife drawer and they try to call the police after hearing a scream and finding more black fluid in the sink.
    • Minutiae: Posted November 1, 2011. Other clips in the video include deer, Alex overhearing Sparky and the Rake behind the door, and recurring scenes of a park flooding. Evan has entered into a relationship with Steph since she started living with him.
  • HAPPYBIRTHDAY: On the Tribe Twelve front, this video briefly references the HYBRIDs as the Observer tells Noah: “those boys cannot help you”.

December 2011

  • The boys’ involvement with CoffeeCollie and Noah broke HABIT’s rule against seeking outside help, if brief surveillance footage of the events overlaid with these words is anything to judge. On May 18, 2010, Nick confirmed that he did not break into Evan’s house dressed as the Slender Man as they had then suspected. Surveillance footage of Evan phoning Vince reveals that in the present, Nick broke into his basement and attacked him. In a moment Evan cannot fully accept as real, they were suddenly under the big tree at Baldpate Mountain when he broke Nick’s neck, compelled by a voice in his head asking to help. While there, he found the same kind of pinhole camera that Vince then reports finding in his own home –the same kind from which HABIT projects all the footage of this video, fight included.
    • Minutiae: Posted December 6, 2011. The bandages on Evan’s chest are secured with purple duct tape, and he is shown from two angles in the same scene. Nick was also the name of one “experiment” HABIT created to fight another, according to CANYOUSEETHEWORDS; Evan describes Nick’s eyes and smile as uncanny, confirming the possession of both.
  • Hidden cameras and emails: “I understand but at the same time, you gotta stop. We need to talk to these people. They’ve been helping us.”
  • In Vince’s basement, the boys discuss the hidden cameras they have found and intend to track. Jeff and Evan argue about Jeff’s deletion of viewer e-mails, but he ultimately concedes to Vince’s point that the viewers should stay informed. They follow Vince’s wi-fi tracking app outside where they find a 500GB wi-fi hard drive secured with purple duct tape under the front steps: it connects to all of HABIT’s cameras, containing all of their files.
    • Minutiae: Posted December 19, 2011. A surveillance clip of Vince’s basement in the beginning shows the rocking horse from Corenthal’s storage facility moving on its own.

EverymanHYBRID tweets:

To clear up any issue that last video was uploaded by me. Security came from HDD we found. We all know. Don't worry too much. [V]

Happy Decemberween and Festivus, Joyous Chrimbus, and Merry Christmas. [J]

  • A Vinny / HYBRID Christmas: “Hey HYBRIDs, I just wanted to take a break from the Christmas party to basically clear something up. It seems that the last "three" videos, there’s been a little confusion; the most recent video was actually done by me. I did have the security footage; I found it on the hard drive and I incorporated it into the video. The other two videos that you guys keep talking about… again, you know, we can't see ’em.”
  • The boys’ Christmas party includes Alex, Steph, and Daniel. Jeff receives an air horn from Alex and HABIT’s hidden footage kicks in for the viewers again. Jeff has a conversation with Vince in the car about his difficulty in taking care of Alex when it “should have been” him dying in his parents’ place. This is interrupted by a scene of someone underwater, two others reaching for them. Evan receives a knife from Steph and hidden footage shows her holding a pregnancy test. In a later cut, Alex acknowledges that the sock puppet is not Sparky.
    • Minutiae: Posted December 24, 2011. The box for Evan is wrapped in purple duct tape. The description reads:

A few minutes of our gift exchange at our Christmas party. Happy holidays.

January 2012

  • Jim Thorpe: “If you’re already hidden, then just fucking stay there. We are on our fucking way; we’ll be there in a few fucking minutes.”
  • The boys drive to Jessie’s Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania home when Evan receives a troubling call and urges Vince to drive faster. He enters through the open second story door, much to Vince and Jeff’s confusion. They hear a struggle inside that ends with Evan throwing the Rake out of a second story window. Jeff runs to the car and the Rake brutally attacks Vince, only fleeing after Jeff sounds the airhorn.
    • Minutiae: Posted January 20, 2012. The song playing in the car when Evan enters the house is “When the War Came” by The Decemberists. Visual distortion is present in this video.
  • Jessie: “I said she’s fucking dead. You can’t just go the fuck in there with your fucking camera. We're leaving.”
  • Jeff helps Vince up after his Rake attack, and he is bleeding profusely. Evan’s clothes have been torn and he is covered in blood, traumatized to have found Jessie’s body brutalized by the Rake. He urges Vince not to enter with the camera. On the drive home, Jeff tells Vince that the Rake chased him into the woods but for some reason, the Slender Man’s appearance stopped it from attacking and both disappeared.
    • Minutiae: Posted January 23, 2012. The description reads:

We had moral issues with uploading this part of the video, but decided we should show it. I'm sure you understand. Jessie, we're so sorry. [V]

February 2012

  • Intermission: “We're going to get it up as soon as possible, as soon as we talk about it, and come to a consensus about what we can show you. It’s just… Alex isn't okay.”
  • Vince informs viewers that something went down when they were on the way to Jessie’s funeral, and the boys have been reluctant to upload the video.
    • Minutiae: Posted February 16, 2012.
  • Consensus: “I’ve been having these dreams lately. Well, they’re not really dreams, because everything it tells me happens.”
  • Vince picks up Alex on the way to Jessie’s funeral. In the car, Alex confesses that the Rake has sent him prophetic dreams, even describing what it would do to Jessie in sickening detail. The camera battery dies before he can elaborate on what it mentioned about the boys. The video cuts again: sometime after they take a wrong turn, Vince wakes up coughing in the woods with black fluid on his hands, the Slender Man off in the distance. He follows a trail of the fluid to a black garbage bag hanging from the trees, confirmed to contain Alex’s remains by clips of him from previous videos playing upon discovery. Vince returns to his car to find more black fluid on its windshield.
    • Minutiae: Posted February 21, 2012. The Rake has been known to speak to its victims before; these have included William, Rose, and Linnie. The Slender Man seems to be at odds with the Rake, considering that it stopped the Rake from killing Jeff and then kills Alex itself after he reveals information to one of the Slender Man’s usual targets; “Man doesn’t share”, after all. Vince’s facial hair is inexplicably gone after the Slender Man’s attack, implying that he and the others can return from death without entering into the next iteration in the cycle through rebirth.

March 2012

  • LeftBehind.m4v: This video documents the final moments of Zeke Strahm, a detective who had used his blog Seeking Truth to document his fight against the Slender Man. At one point in the video, he says: “You HYBRID boys, keep your eyes and ears open, okay? Your buddy Evan… however bad he is now, it’s going to get so much worse before it gets better. It’s funny… she’ll talk about what happened to her parents, but not about what happened to that group she was traveling with. Just a thought.”4
  • The boys share words to the audience for the channel’s second anniversary. Evan addresses Steph, saying that he will “keep fighting for” her and their unborn child. Vince thanks Evan, Jeff, and the audience for being there with him. Echoing a phantom tweet, Jeff tells the audience to stop watching. Echoing Zeke Strahm’s warning that Evan will get worse, HABIT hijacks the video with a montage set to “The Best is Yet to Come” by Frank Sinatra.
    • Minutiae: Posted March 20, 2012. The montage clips include Jeff collapsed from his apparent overdose, blood on Vince’s glasses as he lies unconscious, a knife tracing around Vince’s face in a picture frame, and someone wandering through the woods. Clips after the montage show Vince fleeing someone with a flashlight and the same footage of one person drowning another as shown in “Welcome to the ARK”. Because he has essentially controlled the EverymanHYBRID channel and every clue trail surrounding it from the beginning, that the boys cannot see HABIT’s additions is no longer relevant: they are for the audience, and always have been. Still, the boys’ description commemorates Ryan, Jessie, Nick, Jeff and Alex’s parents, Jessa, Lexi, Rose, Linnie, Glenn Eisen, John Mayner, Alex, and Sparky:

Three friends, two parents, two loved ones, two strangers, two coworkers, a brother, his dog, and still no resolution.
