Tribe Twelve Season Two

The second season of Tribe Twelve ran from June 4, 2013 to 2020 and is comprised of the videos “DEUS EX MACHINA” through “Facade”. Noah Maxwell has at this point found a nebulous ally in his Collective alter ego Firebrand, but the Observer’s warning that insanity will rule his mind should he resist the Collective echoes throughout. Since the movement from Formspring to, Noah’s increasingly sporadic correspondence with viewers stands as a record of his descent into madness.

Preface #1

Noah tweets:

For those wondering, I'm alive and well. Not much has happened since the live stream, but it's these quiet times that mess with me the most. #2

Noah tweets:

I'm still not convinced that this isn't all just one long fucked up super nightmare yet. This calm makes no sense, but then again what does?

It's been approximately 3 years since I opened this account. Things have gotten worse each year. The future is pitch black. #3

June 2013

  • DEUS EX MACHINA: “I belong, and yet I don’t. An abomination of existence. Trapped in this awful form.”
  • Firebrand informs Noah that he is free from the Administrator and granted invulnerability by his and Noah’s future obtainment of Sebastian Kraus’ journal. He attributes this freedom to “a loathsome entity with mutual interests”, identified by the imagery as Evan from Everyman HYBRID in his current state of possession by HABIT. Firebrand promises to guide Noah “for you. For us. For all of us” affected by the Collective. Noah will receive a briefcase with a combination lock from “a past soul send[ing] his regards from the present” –Mr. Scars, who has tally marks carved into his arm and holds a gun while sitting in a chair and weeping.
  • Hidden Frames: 1 | 2
    • Minutiae: Posted June 4, 2013. The slowed and reversed song in this video is “We’ve Been Had” by the Walkmen. Firebrand’s appearances again manifest eyes on his palms and fire surrounding him; other imagery includes Firebrand flipping off the Administrator, Cursor inside of a safe, waves lapping on a shoreline, Noah reeling backwards with a camera and knife, a series of numbers over a corrupted display of the “Introduction - In Memory of Milo Asher” video, and a screaming mouth inside the briefcase as Firebrand opens it. The description reads:


Noah tweets:

I go shopping for one fucking hour and come back to THIS? Jesus Christ on a pogo stick, this is too much. I'm gonna need a drink.

Was that who I think it was at 0:58 in the video? Looks a hell of a lot like Evan from EMH, and he's gone insane. This is just dumbfounding.

Ok, looks like I could be getting a case w/ a 6 digit combo. Might be related to my 1st video somehow. Can anyone help find possible combos?

I'm just trying to think ahead here, you guys can help me think of combinations and I'll try them all out on the case if and when it comes.

Since the combo is likely a code, can you tell me why you think your combo is numerically significant? I don't want random numbers.

The more I watch the video, the more confusing it is. Fires? Evan? Gifts? I don't remember stabbing anyone, and there's nothing in my shoes.

Cursor could be Mary, considering Firebrand mentioned she had a safe I had to find. And Mr. Scars could be Milo, I think he did cut himself.

The guy in the chair is definitely from my dreams. Gotta be Mr. Scars. But why does he have a gun? And why is he sending me a briefcase? #4

August 2013 #5

Noah tweets:

dream. running in the woods. searching for something. see a dead body. turn around, im on an old bridge. someone comes up behind me. i wake.

Firebrand tweets:

in transit. ~ F


Noah tweets:

This letter came today. Nervous about opening it. I thought I was getting a briefcase, not more cryptic bullshit.


Dont wanna open this, but I have to. Dont want to do it alone, but I have no friends. Might record myself opening it so I don't feel alone. #6

Noah tweets:

Alright, I've decided. I'm opening the letter tomorrow and I'm going to film it. Is it weird that I feel safer with the camera on?

Opening the OBITUARY letter in a few mins. Filming and uploading the contents tonight if time permits. Not looking forward to this at all.

so much shit just went down, i am bewildered. rendering this video as fast as i can. computer's shit, might take a while. uploading tonight.

  • Obituary: “Mary runs no more after fleeing for so long/But now you must answer the door/DING DONG/DING DONG”
  • Noah summarizes his thoughts on “DEUS EX MACHINA” (most notably, his distrust of Evan/HABIT and reluctance to become Firebrand) and receives a call from his mother as he prepares to open the letter. She tells him that Mary was found in her submerged car, shot dead; Noah is frustrated with this loss of a potential lead but then remembers that Mr. Scars, whom he already suspects to be Milo, is “theonewhokillsmary”. Inside the envelope, Noah finds the newspaper recounting that “Mary was found in the passenger's seat with tape covering her eyes and a gunshot wound to the abdomen” –confirming her as Cursor. There are also four photographs of the scene and a note instructing Noah to answer the door; the bell immediately rings and Noah finds the briefcase outside.
    • Hidden Frames: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
    • Minutiae: Posted October 31, 2013. Noah describes the tape on the envelope as sticky and waterlogged, which implies that it was the same tape from Mary’s eyes. Right before the bell rings, Mr. Scars is silhouetted outside the door and presses his hand against it. The description reads:

I got a strange letter in the mail when I was expecting an even stranger briefcase to arrive. Turns out, I got a lot more than I expected.

September 2013

Noah tweets:

Having a staring contest with the case. Afraid to touch it. All that badassery I mustered up isn't working. Gotta at least try to open it.

The combo was 000 000 when I found the case. Now compiling a list of all the possible number combos that might open it with clues in mind.

Gonna start trying combos tonight. I'll be filming again, it just makes me feel safer at this point. Feeling a lot of emotions right now.

Going to try and open the briefcase now with the combos that you all helped me come up with. Wish me luck.

im speechless right now. completely bewildered again. not even sure if i should upload this video because of what i just found in this case.

Gonna upload the newspaper clipping and photos from the letter now. Still indecisive about uploading the briefcase video. Maybe Friday.

The article on Mary Asher's death from the "OBITUARY" letter.


Photo of Mary Asher's car in a retention pond from the "OBITUARY" letter.


Photo of Mary Asher's car being taken out of the pond from the "OBITUARY" letter.

Photo of Mary Asher's corpse from the "OBITUARY" letter.


Decided to upload this shit. There's no use in hiding anything at this point, it needs to be documented. Rendering now. It'll be up tonight.

  • Extraordinary Circumstances: “Dear Noah, may this case filled with my old belongings somehow aid you in fighting whatever is plaguing us. Unfortunately, by the time that you receive this, I’ll surely be dead. I am sorry that I cannot explain more because I think it may jeopardize my life under the recent extraordinary circumstances of my current existence, but I think you’ll be able to figure it out in the end. I trust you, old friend. Love, Milo Asher.”
  • Noah attempts to open the briefcase with a list of codes suggested by viewers, ultimately succeeding with “642010” (upload date of his first video). It contains the Sudoku Rubik’s Cube, a letter from Milo, Milo’s journal, a pair of shoes Noah once gave to Milo, a DV tape inside one of the shoes, and immense stacks of hundred dollar bills hidden at the bottom. Noah’s previous elation turns to disbelief. A future version of Noah appears, saying “it wasn’t easy, but you can thank me later.” Distortion shows Firebrand’s face over his own and he disappears before Noah can find him again.
    • Hidden Frame
    • Minutiae: Posted September 6, 2013. The other suggested codes were “111191” (Noah’s birthday), “111111” (recurring number), and “052810” (date of Milo’s death); distortion occurs upon their entry even though they are incorrect, just as it does more intensely at each pivotal moment of the video. The Collective symbol is present on Milo’s journal and the tape. The description reads:

I opened it. This is what was inside. I'm bewildered. I was tempted not to upload this, but there's no use in hiding anything at this point. It needs to be documented.

Noah tweets:

For those of you curious, I've counted it. It's just shy of $100,000. I don't even know how to react to this. I'm not spending anything.

Going through the contents of this case. Head is spinning. Gonna make an update on my findings, but I have no idea where to start.

At a crossroads. What would you do for a friend in need?

October 2013

Noah tweets:

I've investigated all I could. There's still a lot to consider and more possible tape to recover. Posting my findings soon.

November 2013

Noah tweets:

Halloween, uneventful. Stayed in my room trying to salvage footage from the tape. I'm grateful, because I just recovered some serious stuff. #7

Noah tweets:

My 22nd birthday is in 30 mins. I'm nervous, but not like last year. There haven't been any warnings signs. Firebrand must be protecting me.

Firebrand tweets:

happy birthday noah. unsure how much longer i can keep you safe. the administrator doesn't like what I'm doing. answers are coming. ~ F

Noah tweets:

Uneventful birthday. Posting a video on my briefcase findings tonight. Still getting clips from the tape together, posting that on Friday.

  • Case Findings: “Be cautious while walking into darkness alone.”
  • Noah cannot be happy about the money while suspicious of its origins, but he has given $2,000 of it to Chris from Dark Harvest after he uploaded video proof that the Order forced him and Alex to go on the run by killing their families. A fortune sticking out of Milo’s journal reads “Find the key, learn the lesson”, so Noah will not cut it open. The soles of the shoes have holes in them; the left one contains the fortune quoted above, while the right one contains a key with the Collective symbol on it. It fits the journal’s lock perfectly but will not open it. A fortune inside the tape’s case reads “If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze into you.”
    • Hidden Frame
    • Minutiae: Posted November 11, 2013. Noah says that he broke his Sudoku Rubik’s Cube years ago and gave it to Milo in 2008 after he expressed an interest in fixing it, which he has before returning it. He notes that the journal was one of several topics that Milo avoided discussing with him. The description reads:

This is what I was able to find out about the briefcase's contents. I'm compiling what I was able to recover from the tape now and posting it on friday, it's some heavy shit.

Noah tweets:

The video is still processing quality-wise, but it's up. Viewer discretion is advised.

  • Milo’s Tape: “I read it all. I know what you did to Noah. What-what my entire life was really meant for! I know you killed Dad!”
  • This heavily distorted tape cuts between a speech Milo filmed April 30, 2010 to describe his affliction and a longer scene from 2013. He wakes up in Mary’s empty house, laboring to breathe and speak, and finds a demolition notice outside. The Observer has left a note in his pocket instructing him to kill Mary within 120 hours (or else the Collective will kill him). A future Noah leaves the briefcase, which contains the money and a gun once Milo has taken hours to open it. The Administrator pursues him through the darkened hallways. He calls Mary to the house via payphone and confronts her with how she meant to sacrifice him ever since he was born. She says it was necessary asks for his help in discovering Mr. Scars’ identity, so Milo confirms that he is (already) Mr. Scars and shoots her. His anger then turns to grief as he apologizes over her dying body.
    • Hidden Frame
    • Minutiae: Posted November 16, 2013. Three out-of-place scenes presumably taken prior to Milo’s death and return show him pointing the camera at Mary’s safe, cutting his arm, and drawing the symbol on his journal. The final frame confirms that his heavy breathing and guttural voice is caused by a slit throat. The description reads:

This is what I was able to recover from Milo's tape that I found in the briefcase. It's really fucked up, viewer discretion is advised. It hurts to watch. I don't even know what to say.

December 2013

Noah tweets:

Been having a lot of bizarre deja vu lately. This sounds nuts, but I think I'm getting premonitions from Firebrand. We're linked, after all.

@DarkHarvest00 uploaded our phone calls about the money:

Firebrand tweets:

you will soon be gifted valuable information from our mutual acquaintance as per our agreement. be wary, he's a dangerous one. ~ F

Noah tweets:

Just got a strange unmarked envelope in the mail, but it's obvious who it's from. I don't want to open it, but I have to.

im back. not sure what just happened to me or where ive been. the footage will explain. theres a lot. posting some tonight. passing out now.

Slept most of the day. Woke up thinking what happened was just a nightmare, but the footage was there. Uploading the first part of it now.

  • Severance: “Names come from trying to apply meaning to something, but this doesn’t need a name. This, in and of itself, is the meaning. It represents what it is, and what it is, is separation. This little symbol right here basically represents… severance. Cutting the puppet strings. Do you catch my drift?”
  • HABIT’s letter is a mocking offer to help Noah through a face-to-face meeting, which Noah promptly receives upon following notes (“KNOCK KNOCK”, “WHO’S THERE?”) that warp him to HABIT’s illicitly-gained house in New Jersey. Noah is on edge to see HABIT covered in blood, but HABIT has him sit down at his table and, after making characteristically flippant threats of violence and advising Noah to obtain Sebastian’s journal, has Noah draw the Collective symbol. He claims that it represents “severance”, and with “the correct intentions” can be used to take power away from something –indicating that Noah ought to draw it on a knife and stab the Administrator. Noah stands his ground as he perceives HABIT moving closer to him and watches him open the bathroom door to the sight of an unidentified man (apparently Michael Andersen) bleeding from the hip and coughing. HABIT kicks Noah out, leaving him in the darkened streets with no idea of where he is.
    • Minutiae: Posted December 25, 2013. HABIT is accompanied by heavy purple distortion and a low reverberation in his voice and mentions that “he” (the Administrator) cannot enter the house. His claim to have worked with the Nazis is consistent with this blog post and others implicating his possessive influence over many infamous historical figures. As HABIT notes, the symbol’s power of severance is consistent with its effects on Noah’s hacked accounts. The description reads:

I was sent a letter on December 24th. This is what happened after I opened it. Part 1 of 2.

January 2014 #8

Noah tweets:

The clips on my tape are in a strange order. Been piecing them together through the new year. Part 2 will include everything else on it.

Took this before opening the letter. Purple tape, Haunter, stylized bullshit. Compiling the footage for part 2 now.

February 2014

  • Bridge to Nowhere: “This place. There’s something about it. It just… it just doesn’t feel right. Feels…doesn’t feel natural.”
  • Noah learns from his phone that he has been displaced into September and learns from a stranger (apparently Lee from Whispered Faith) that he is in New Jersey. The streets around him experience alien geometries as Firebrand instructs him via text to “find the bridge/before they do/~F”. HABIT appears for split seconds every step of the way and, once at the bridge, Noah encounters Jeff. He cannot explain how he is “alive” but tells Noah that suicide is the only escape and runs off. HABIT appears at the end of the bridge and indicates that Noah has entered his realm. He expresses some genuine anger at Jeff’s suggestion that Noah kill himself to escape and says that Noah will eventually heed HABIT’s advice of his own volition. With a kick, HABIT sends Noah back home and into the present again.
    • Hidden Frame
    • Minutiae: Posted February 14, 2014. The slowed and reversed songs in this video are “Can’t Take my Eyes off You” by Frank Valli and “Haunted House” from Super Mario 64. Firebrand’s text comes at 11:11 PM from the number (11)-1111-11. Noah repeats manic phrases to himself throughout, including that he has to “keep documenting” a swarm of bugs. The description reads:

Here is the rest of the footage I took on December 24th, part 2 of 2. Nothing makes sense anymore, but then again, did it ever?

August 2014

On August 14, 2014, a TribeTwelve Vine account surfaces:


as above so below

  • ill be watching you: Vine video with a dizzying close-up of Milo’s journal. The slowed and reversed song is “Every Breath You Take” by The Police.

Noah tweets:

Woke up to a surprise vine account. I didnt make it. App isnt even on my phone. Tried downloading app, but I cant sign in via twitter. Shit.

im tired of staring at this book. im tired of waiting for me to wake up and do something. i feel lost inside myself. what is real. im tired.

September 2014 #11

Noah tweets:

i still want to die. but i dont want them to kill me. cant tell if ive lost my mind or if im lost in my mind or both. the journal mocks me.

October 2014

Noah tweets:

im not sure if im more afraid of the unknown, or of the known coming to an end. uncertainty is more unpleasant than unpleasant certainty.

i cant take it anymore. im sick of finding these fucking things hidden around my house.


theyve been popping up for months now. hidden in plain sight. didnt wanna post about it. thought itd stop eventually.


this is the amount ive found in the past week alone. why have this many appeared. getting worried. somethings coming.


November 2014

Noah tweets:

birthday. quiet. feels like defusing a bomb. think the bombs a dud. why do i keep thinking theyre predictable. theyre just watchin me squirm

you know youre losing it when you start believing fortune cookies. you know youve lost it when they start coming true


the fortunes are getting to me. you may think im paranoid. im really not. paranoids just think demons are coming for them. i have evidence. #12

Noah tweets:

im thankful for waking up every day after not killing myself.

December 2014

Noah tweets:

i recorded an update on my birthday. rewatching it, i hesitated posting. i didnt want people to see me like this. i got real bummed out.

but fuck it. if i dont get this vid out im going to hate myself even more. i may be pathetic but im no quitter anymore. its going up friday.

  • Fortunes: “This damn book. Oh, what a character this motherfucker is! It mocks me. You know, it fucking mocks me. The key doesn’t work, but they want me to open it up by force. But I’m not gonna, uh-uh, ’cause that’s what they want me to do, and I’m not gonna do what they want me to do, uh-uh. Maybe it’s best to leave Pandora’s Box closed.”
  • Noah is at this point thoroughly drained and unkempt from paranoia, and he claims that the only activity from the Collective has been nightmares. He pegs Firebrand as the obvious source of the Vine account and fortune cookies around his house, and promises to re-upload the old livestreams he has recently found again. Throughout the video, Noah silences a whispering voice whose source turns out to be Milo’s journal. After getting angry at it, he is briefly warped to the boardwalk where the Administrator almost ambushes him. Noah ends the video apologizing to Milo and opening a final cookie whose fortune reads “run.”

    • Minutiae: Posted December 12, 2014. A voice at the beginning, presumably Firebrand, addresses “happy birthday” to “me”, “you”, and “Noah”. Noah has experienced insomnia, future premonitions, and sleepwalking that he believes is possession by Firebrand. He lied to his parents about getting a job while actually spending money from the briefcase and taking up drinking again, also attending Mary’s funeral with suspicions about “who’s in the ground and who isn’t”. Trees on the boardwalk display tendrils like the Administrator, and Firebrand’s hand can be seen saving Noah as he is warped back. The description reads:

recorded this on my birthday. didnt wanna post it because i didnt want people to see me like this, but fuck it. havent posted in a while, wanted to lay low. i thought if i didnt provoke them long enough, maybe theyd go away. how naive of me. they hid frames in this video, theyve been leaving me fortune cookies, the journal whispers to me. in their absence, ive neglected the fact that theyve never left. some fortunes are best left unopened.

October 2015

The Observer tweets:




  • DEATHTRAPEXODUS: “The being, it gives us great power, yet deprives us of free will. We are cryptic creatures by nature, pacified by his dark force, puppets meant to manipulate your world through mortal vessels. But being outside the range of control severs my strings and loosens my tongue. The longer I am free, the more wisdom I am able to bestow.”
  • According to Firebrand, who again has only “a rare window” to act as the Administrator grows stronger, Noah’s experience of the Collective’s realm and its temporal elongation (and “the operating room”) taught him a lesson and he must now open Milo’s journal using his knowledge of Severance. Firebrand refers to “the dark times” and “flood”, the former of which “will bring Kevin” and follow Noah’s reading of Sebastian’s journal. Swain is shown holding Sebastian’s journal (and removing his comedy mask to reveal a tragedy mask underneath) and a vault door manifesting on its pages contains Deadhead. The Observer hijacks the video, more unstable than ever. He calls Milo’s journal “the wrong present” in a fit of rage but expresses gladness that Noah will read of his deeds in it. The Observer again demands that Noah receive the journal from Karl (“the Hermit”), threatening to break his resolve even further via the Collective’s realm (“Hell”) if he does not.
    • Hidden Frames: 1 | 2
    • Minutiae: Posted October 31, 2015. The slowed and reversed song in the Firebrand portion of this video is “Too Much Information” by the Police and the one in the Observer portion is “Fire” by Arthur Brown. At the end, Noah says “Looking forward to it” in reverse. Firebrand’s text just before the Observer’s hijacking reads “The only way to free Kevin is to terminate his vessel.” Much of the imagery in Firebrand’s portion relates to imprisonment, and scene transitions involve water. It also depicts an eye opening from a line on Firebrand’s left palm, a black pen overwriting the Severance symbol on Milo’s journal, an eye and giant spider emerging from Noah’s roof, a blade, Noah bandaging his hand, a satchel labeled “826277”, Noah grinning maniacally, and reflections in the Observer’s glasses showing the boardwalk’s tower and Noah on the ground in pain. The description reads:

  • Crawlspace: “I can’t do it. I can’t do it, Milo. I can’t burn you. I can’t burn you. Not again. I can’t burn you again.”
  • In the months following “Fortunes”, Noah keeps the journal around at all times and it continues pressuring him to open it. At one point it identifies the area under Noah’s desk as the “crawlspace”, and the night vision briefly turns red with an otherworldly humming noise. This sounds again on a different night when the Observer follows behind Noah with a knife. Out of frustration, Noah attempts first to force the journal open and then to burn it. It claims that it is in pain and is Milo himself, which stops Noah both times. The hum and red hue return one night as the Observer stands by Noah’s bed and invites him to the boardwalk. The journal draws Noah’s attention to twigs and leaves under his desk, and examining them warps him to the boardwalk and spontaneously back again. He then does this deliberately and the camera turns towards him upon his return. The journal has him enter the crawlspace the next night, and it becomes apparent that the red hue and hum signify entrance into the Collective’s realm. It thanks Noah, then says “enjoy your stay.” He falls to his knees in a sort of trance. After coming to his senses and running, the Observer’s laughter follows Noah and he encounters the Administrator. It reaches towards him with its many arms, and the journal is gone when he warps back home. Noah drives back to the boardwalk, ranting at himself for not opening it; once there, day instantaneously phases into night, and night into the Collective’s realm. Noah is left to contemplate his next move.
    • Hidden Frame
    • Minutiae: Posted February 27, 2016. The slowed and reversed songs in this video are “For Whom the Bell Tolls” by Steve Baker and Carmen Daye and “Heyr himna smiður” by Árstíðir . Noah remains desperate to convince himself that his trips to the boardwalk are hallucinations or dreams. He also spends these months trying to solve the Sudoku Rubik’s Cube, contemplating whether he should call Edward about his father’s name on the Order manifest if it means putting him in danger, and replaying his videos at such moments as Jeff telling him to kill himself. Also (between a fortune and a $100 bill), he eats paper now. The journal stands up on its own at one point. He finds fortunes reading “Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than being able to decide”, “Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake”, and “Your problem just got bigger. Think about what you have done”. Noah has an EverymanHYBRID business card on his other desk. The description reads:

  • Pitfall: “This is the end! I’m fucking dead! I’m free!”
  • Noah ventures back into the Collective’s realm (“for you, Milo. For you”), and the shifting boardwalk keeps leading him back to the boardwalk’s own watchtower. The Observer, assuming Kevin’s visage and voice, appears at the top of it and lures Noah into climbing its endless stairs in either direction for hours. Milo’s journal, preceded by a fortune (“You are lost and insecure. Now is a lucky time for you – take a chance”), first tempts him to jump down for it and then warns him as the Observer appears again to push him. Noah plummets from the impossible height for almost half a minute before hitting the boardwalk. Kevin leads him, barely conscious, to a building called “Museum of Medical History”. Its automatic doors send Noah back to the boardwalk where he finds another fortune: “A drowning man will grab a snake”. He collapses.

  • 13. Unsatisfied Customers: a video revealing that Stan Frederick, who became a paranormal investigator after gaining immunity to monsters, had met with Noah before. He receives a four-month-old voicemail from Noah that says, “How’ve you been. Whatever you say you’ve been doing is not helping me. In fact, things have been worse. Why are you peddling snake oil to me, Stan? I open up to you, and you squander my precious time? Consider this correspondence terminated.”

Noah tweets:

ok fam so this is whats up

its been quiet for me. not the comfortable quiet. the kind of quiet where you know someones in your home but you cant hear them. still quiet

been taking a cocktail of antipsychotics to help me not think of them. they come when you think about them. mention them. tweet. film. post.

my insurance coverage just got yanked. five pills of my cheapest drug now costs me $300. im livid.

i can no longer afford my meds

looks like the boys upstairs noticed this and decided to make a move on my mind. our healthcare system has double fucked me.

between that and stan throwing rocks at my window and the increase in nightmares and being haunted by what ive read from milos account

ive been slipping

my blinders are dissolving. im losing it again. my grasp on my ability to hold back from picking at the never healing wound

meds wear off in about a week or so going cold turkey, people online say. lets see how long this meatbag can hold out

today is my 1st day without meds. broke out in hives. drank too much. woke up in the tub. cant tell if the bath was on or if its all sweat

Stan Frederick responds:

Sorry about the rocks. If it makes you feel better, you won't be hearing anymore rocks from me ever again, so. Good luck, man. I do mean it.

Noah tweets:

couldnt keep down food today. kept seeing shadows. changing shadows. always out of the corner of my eye. always there. begging for attention

second day off the caps. woke up in vomit. shivers. weird because i dont remember eating. blood and bile. withdrawals hitting hard already.

dont have any cleaner. debating going to cvs or stealing from neighbors shed. saw
him for the first time in months. still tall.

swore the solicitor was bald. tend to have panic attacks around suits now. dont need your shit insurance im a walking liability. drank again

chucked the camera in the canal. fuck this. i don't need this anymore.

not using briefcase money for meds. not hemorrhaging milos cash to a fucking pharmacy. not risking arrest or monkey paw shit. its locked up.

anyone know if being targeted by a eldritch abomination is considered a pre-existing condition?

insomnia. the visions are returning. i feel the veil lifting from my perception. i can see again. see the truth. theyre still here. restless


no no no no no no no no no no no no


it was gone. why are they forcing this back to me. still works. goddamn it

3rd day. first time ive opened adobe premiere in months. camera needs a charge. i have to. relive it. reassure myself the dream was real.

7 years since my first tweet. 7 years since milo died. 7 years since the beginning of the end of my life.

red night vision makes it not look so bad. truth was it was pitch black. viewfinder was my only light source. only a tiny screen. for weeks

ill never forget when i saw him. i laughed and laughed and laughed. makes the goosebumps tighten. the blood. the pain. it stung like hornets

editing. cutting some. leaving some. a month is a lot to go through. especially with the director watching from outside. fuck corporate

didnt eat. didnt sleep. didnt even shit. spent every waking minute of today revisiting my trip to hell. im mortified

finally hungry. ate some crackers. having an issue rendering. must clear space on my drive. shes old but she still purrs. saw him again

i didnt mean to throw the hard drive across the room at him i promise

thought i lost all the footage in a rage. was relieved. then i realized solid state drives cant head crash. kill me

k. its done. thats all i can bring myself to edit. not proud. i wish it were only a dream. but dreams are no longer distinct from reality

  • And there's no reality beyond observation. ~F: Twitter video of Noah behind his computer uploading the next video, all in the Collective black-and-white. The slowed and reversed song in this video is “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell.
  • Sisyphus: “Noah, listen to me for once in your miserable fucking life! You make it like the whole world is out to eat you –like they’re out to get you because you looked too deep down the rabbit hole and you fell in. Like you’re rolling up that… that boulder up the hill, over and over, only for it to fall down… you gotta roll it up again, over and over, like your whole life’s a sick fucking joke. Meant for the entertainment of people watching on the internet behind… their screens, all safe. Well, you know what? I’ve got good news for you. You’re absolutely right! We stole fire from the gods and now we pay.”
  • After at least two days in the Collective’s realm, Noah finds another fortune (“A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it./You Have No Lucky Numbers”) and sees the boardwalk trapping him in a loop, eyes manifesting everywhere, and a screeching giant spider chasing him. After finding another fortune (“A familiar stranger will soon enter your life with wisdom to share./Lucky Numbers 666, 666, 666, 666, 666, 666”), Noah is stopped by a future version of himself. He has longer hair and demonic undertones to his voice –but is not Firebrand yet, he says. He knew that this meeting would happen while remembering few specifics, and gives distracting and morbidly humorous responses to Noah’s frustrated and panicked questions. He leads Noah up the tower and shows that his satchel (labeled “826277”) contains the “Nazi blade” and Sebastian’s journal, which Noah must “earn”. Noah yells that he cannot trust him, both up there and back down once he offers to show him “a gift”, so Future Noah apprehends him. Between the last two lines of the above quote, he slashes Noah’s left palm with the blade. He lets the wounded Noah run, trip over a box labeled “DIE”, and bandage his hand with a rag he left, all while laughing maniacally and reminding Noah that this is indeed what he becomes. The box contains a 100-sided die and fortune (“In the jungle you must wait until the dice roll 5 or 8./Lucky Numbers 5 or 8”). Noah almost rolls an “8”, but then the spider’s screeching returns.

The slowed and reversed songs in this video are “Under the Boardwalk” by The Drifters, “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley, “Tarantula” by Pendulum, “Blackest Eyes” by Porcupine Tree, and “Jumanji Drums”. Before the encounter, Noah sees a spinning leaf become an eye, asks a swarm of ants for directions, briefly warps back to his hallway (where Future Noah walks by), spins in another vain attempt to return home, and finds a screaming mass of eyes in the trash that ejects the second fortune. Future Noah hangs up on a “naggy roommate” who calls him and also says that he lost track of the date from whence he came because “we’re kind of on house arrest right now” –and he attributes his lack of clarity to staying in the Collective’s realm for extended periods. At one point, he deliberately disgusts Noah by eating raw meat from a bag labeled “BIRD”. The scar is still visible on his left palm. The description reads:

Scriniarii Node 2November 11

  • TRIBETWELVE VETERANS DAY SPECIAL: Future Noah answers the sensum’s questions from a YouTube “livestream” –really a “prerecorded” video from the dark times, shortly after the boardwalk incident. He shows off Karl’s journal and a printed copy of their questions, having hijacked the Twitter and Scriniarii’s account against the latter’s rules. Due to his house arrest, Noah lacks power (besides some allotted by Firebrand) and hunts for food in the Collective realm by creating portals with Severance. He defines the loop as “the good timeline”, having some knowledge of failed ones, and calls the sensum important because they record events. Noah keeps his unstable and flippant demeanor throughout, despite resenting his current lot. He says that the recurrent beeping near the end signifies that someone has entered his home.
    • Minutiae: Posted November 11, 2017. Noah hints at future revelations about “the event” from 1944, how he got Sebastian’s journal, Mary’s selfishness, the satchel’s serial number, the blade, Noah’s roommate, how Noah learned to use Severance (to be shown in the next video), Edward, HABIT, the boat captain, and Robert. This Noah cares more about perseverance than his present self (“a slow, depressed, troglodyte idiot”) does, and looks forward to becoming Firebrand. Living things, like the ibis Noah caught, “get pulled through” the Collective realm rather than occurring there naturally. The giant spider (“Mongo”) is actually one of several forms the Administrator has taken throughout history to frighten humans. Swain is “fucking dead… decades ago! Why… you know this.” Noah has indeed attempted suicide by this future point. The description reads:

  • Rendezvous: “After the symbol is destroyed, you’re gonna have a window of just about a minute to get from the pier to the entrance before they can reseal that gateway. No matter what you hear, no matter what you see, what you think, you cannot turn around or look behind you until you get to that fucking parking lot, you understand? Any hesitation, and they will grab you and drag you back in. Fear is their ally. If you give into it, you die here.”
  • Noah jadedly faces further Administrator and Observer encounters within the first week, but gets cornered and runs up the boardwalk’s tower. He warps between chained-up segments of the nature trail tower, and the “Wonderland” fortune sends him to a room with a future Noah from earlier in the dark times than the “Sisyphus” one. This one returns Milo’s journal and sternly forces a conversation, refuting Noah’s vocal distrust of his future selves (especially Firebrand) and fate. He says that they communicate cryptically because Noah won’t learn otherwise, doing so blocks the Collective’s omnipotence, and Noah could still negate the loop with divergent choices. Future Noah opens Sebastian’s journal, which distorts on-camera and shocks his past self, to reveal its deeply-affecting power and why their fate is truly sealed. Noah must get it through some kind of “willing” transfer of ownership (not merely asking Karl), not heed “anything obvious” (the die and some fortunes were a Collective “ruse”)… and escape the boardwalk by moving opposite the landscape alterations, destroying a Severance symbol by the pier, and never looking back for the minute he has to exit. Noah returns to the boardwalk with Milo’s journal and low camera battery.

Fortunes read “You will never find the journal”, “☺”, “Enjoy the small things you find on your path” (alongside a proper bandage), “You don’t need strength to let go of fear. What you really need is understanding”, and “Whatever we are, I still remember the way we were.” Noah tries in vain to roll the die and set off his car alarm, and eats leaves from the boardwalk. He spots a tendril-like plant stalk waving, other people walking out of reach, and flashes of moving cars and eyes filling his hallway. Future Noah says of his “Sisyphus” incarnation, “We’ve met a few times. It wasn’t pleasant.” He says to the journal, “I miss you, Milo” (“I miss you, too”, it says).

da alle meine freunde um mich herum sterben, kann ich das gefühl der eifersucht nicht erschüttern. aber wir sind nur ein haufen hilfloser bastarde. es war eine ehre, den freundlichen seelen, die auch das große böse verstanden haben, vertraut zu sein. ruhe gut, meinen brüdern. [German: since all my friends die around me, i can't shake the feeling of jealousy. but we're just a bunch of helpless bastards. it was an honor to be familiar to the kind souls who also understood the great evil. rest well, my brothers.]

[Link to “Facade” premiere]

  • Facade: “Fortunately for you, this whole distraction sequence is an essential part of the timeline in which you escape. Now listen to me very carefully: they keep it daytime here so it’s always bright out because they don’t want you to figure out that the camera’s night vision reveals the truth. I thought you would have figured it out by now but I had to intervene before you fucking starve on me. They’ve moved the door, so you need to find it again. Use the camera, find the door, unlock it, walk back through, it’s that easy. And remember: none of this is real, except for Kevin. Let him in, keep up appearances, keep playing along, it’ll buy you some time. But whatever you do, don’t take what he offers you. You’ll learn why in time after some reading. Then lock him the fuck out and continue onward. Don’t give in, you’ve got this. See you on the other side, trooper.”
  • Noah’s supplies are a boardwalk schematic, pencil and sharpener, water, protein bar, camera battery and tape, scotch tape, and compass (severed and going haywire –“it points to the lock”). He maps a path out, disregarding fortunes and eyes. But the spider forces Noah’s escape through a sudden door “home”. First elated at Firebrand’s apparent rescue, Noah jadedly discovers the facade: plumbing and food supplies are sealed, outer doors loop him inside, “the sun hasn’t set in 3 days”, the journal is muted (bringing him to tears), and the radio and TV are corrupted. A news report shows that Noah’s fall killed him, seemingly real (in this timeline) until it devolves into mockery. Future Noah’s instructional voicemail (quoted above) says the facade “compromises their clairvoyance”. Noah plays along with “Kevin” (really Observer on the boardwalk, the night vision shows) until he offers the black-and-white amnesiac capsule. Noah locks the Observer out and draws Severance over the door, reentering the boardwalk as it fades.
    • Hidden Frame
    • Minutiae: Posted August 23, 2019. The fortunes read “You will die alone and poorly dressed”, “Don’t eat the paper” (he does, alongside a crab), “If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading”, and “We can only show you the door, you’re the one who has to walk through it”. The journal (Milo) and Noah forgive each other –for Milo’s whispers (a result of Firebrand’s plan and his new form’s corruption) and Noah’s inaction about Milo’s muted “screaming”. TV imagery includes “INFERNUM”8. “RIP 12 News” reports Noah’s stomach contents as sticks, leaves, dirt, paper, leather, and hair; the names “Kasha Vine” and “Rob Veers” are anagrams for “Kevin Haas” and “Observer”. During Noah’s escape, the Observer talks backwards to viewers and reveals black eyes and an eye in his mouth after Noah punches off his glasses; Kevin, momentarily himself, says “kill me”. At the end frame, a voice says “Yes!” The description reads:

never take candy from strangers

Noah tweets:

unsere fähigkeit, die entitäten wahrzunehmen, wird direkt durch unsere einheimische wahrnehmung derer beeinflusst, für die wir entworfen wurden. wenn sie nicht darauf trainiert sind, die tarnung zu bemerken, ist sie unsichtbar. der anzug entscheidet, dass sie blind sind. [German: our ability to perceive the entities is directly influenced by our indigenous perception of those for whom we were designed. if you are not trained to notice the camouflage, it is invisible. the suit decides that you are blind.]
