Tape #2

Another tape from the box.  This one's also of Nee-chan.  Again, within the year.  I'm starting to suspect that this will be a trend.  And let me answer a few questions now: no, I haven't asked her about it.  What exactly do I say?  "Hey, Nee-chan, someone sent me a few tapes of you.  Any idea who?"  I'm still not sure if this is something that I want to confront her about soon, or never confront her about.  Ever.  Especially after this one.

Anyway, here's the transcript.

Tape #2

Inside an apartment.  Nee-chan is speaking into the camera--probably her webcam.  She starts by ranting about some anime series like she's doing a review.  The anime isn't important, and neither is what she says, so I'm going to cut that.  Hair, incidentally, is still purple at this point in time.  Ulysses walks in the door behind her, causing her to turn.

Nee-chan: Lissy!  You ruined my review!

Ulysses: Maybe I'd care if you stopped calling my Lissy.

N: But now I'm going to have to do the whole thing again!

U: Yeah, well, I'm sorry that I messed up the time you spent talking about one of those cartoons you're constantly watching.  Seriously, you're what, eighteen?  Grow up a bit, would you?

N: Don't call them cartoons.

U: Well that's what they are.

N: Shut up!

In one swift motion, she pulls out a knife and throws it at him.  He looks down at his chest for a moment before staggering and falling to the ground.  Nee-chan pauses for a moment, a look of shock passing over her face before she rushes into the background, dropping out of the frame about where Ulysses is.

N: Lissy!  I'm...I'm sorry, I...it was an accident!  I didn't mean...c'mon, Lissy!  Y-you're fine!  Lissy!

She stands up, darts back over to the camera, and reaches up, pulling the camera down (closing her laptop, it looks like).  The video cuts off.

End Tape #2

So.  Um...yeah.  I think I'm just going to have to let that one speak for itself, since I don't really want to talk about it.  I just hope that the rest of the tapes aren't as bad as this one.

Although I guess that's one mystery solved: Ulysses probably isn't the one sending me the tapes.

-Don't Shoot The Messenger-


  1. I suppose that's one lesson learned. Never, ever call anime 'cartoons.'

  2. Oh she's just a barrel of laughs isn't she?
    Quick way to get a point across?
    Messenger, I award another crazy point to your side.

  3. Also, don't have a stupid name like Ulysses, which lends itself easily to nicknames while you lie bleeding out on the floor.

  4. Dia: Yeah, it's a sore nerve to some of us.

    Messenger: Bear in mind the things we're witness to. Is a dead guy sending you tapes really that far out of the question?

  5. I've had it happen while I was watching Trigun one day. I nearly cried.

    I didn't mean to be insensitive, either. Ulysses didn't die while the tape was rolling. Maybe he's still alive?

  6. Well, it's nice to see you'rre not willing to converse with her about it, but are perfectly fine to post about it on a public blog that she knows of full well.

    Also, I love how people are quick to agree with a murderous psychopath not to call cartoons cartoons only because they have been made in Japan. Sorry, makes no sense.

  7. Sopia: Hey, you can say something without being cryptic! (Sorry, sorry. Couldn't resist.) Shouldn't you be hacking the Jester's blog again instead of insulting us, though?

  8. Yes, ha ha ha, you're all so clever, but may I just take this moment to say that I potentially just watched my ex-roommate kill someone. Twice. I'm admittedly a bit shaken up.

    And Sopia, I know for a fact that she doesn't read my blog. She's never read any blog but "Morningstar-sempai's." I know that Poe reads it, and Jacob skims it occasionally. Screwtape might read it. He probably does, actually. Hey, Screwtape, if you're reading this, I'd like to talk to you about this sometime. And, um, don't tell Nee-chan, please? I'm still not sure if I want to raise the topic with her.

    As for a dead guy sending me tapes? Gee, that'd be wonderful, wouldn't it? If we could all just fucking come back from the dead? Maybe Ulysses can go all Obi-Wan guiding spirit and teach Caper to come back, too. Maybe we're all immortal now. I would explain why nobody every stays fucking dead anymore.

    -Don't Shoot The Messenger-

  9. Messenger: There are ways to send things from beyond the grave without actually rising from it. Mind you, in this case, it makes little sense as to why they'd do the "Ship to in case of demise" thing. But it's a guess, and the only one I've got that's remotely plausible.

    As for Nee offing people, I'm inclined to point out that people being killers (or attempted killers) seems to be one of the more common traits of people connected to the Slendy-haunted community.

    (Before you ask, yes, that includes me. Under the "attempted" catagory.)
