Animal Crossing: New Leaf Halloween in Smilesville

Animal Crossing: New Leaf Halloween in Smilesville
Dream Address: 4900-6860-0696

(This is sort of… an activity. Basically, this is like a Silent Hill scenario where you’re supposed to find these notes around town. Unfortunately, I could not actually leave letters in town, so I’m posting this here and on my DA. If you want to read the whole thing before going to the town, you can, but I recommend reading it during your exploration. Remember, my town will only be like this today, so go see it. I will post pictures on my DA later for those of you who either don’t have the Dream Suite, or don’t have ACNL at all.

This was proofread once, spell checked once, sorry for typos.)

 

October 15, 2016

My name is Melly, and I’m writing these notes as documentation. I moved to this town, Smilesville, over a month ago. Everyone was nice, and the town was beautiful, colorful, and fun… but it has suddenly changed to this… dark and unsettling place… I don’t know what’s going on. I need to find the Mayor, Reitanna, and see if she knows what’s happening. Maybe this is some new ordinance or something…

October 16, 2016

Reitanna doesn’t seem to be worried about what happened to the town, nor do the villagers. Reitanna just says to keep on smiling. She’s happy, the villagers are happy, the shop owners are happy… perhaps I’m just over thinking things. Everything should be fine… right?

October 17, 2016

Even though everyone is acting like nothing is wrong, it’s obvious to me that something IS wrong. Sometimes I hear scratching at the vents that were installed a few days ago… and there are so many vents, I wonder how they could’ve done it without anyone noticing, or even setting up a donation Gyroid. Plus, there are metal tiles that weren’t there when the town was colorful. Speaking of, the colorful tile became this grimy, moldy brick that’s damp, but there’s been no rain. Another thing I’ve noticed are these large metal squares with circular holes in them. Another kind of vent, maybe?

October 18, 2016

I don’t trust Sprinkle. She is so happy and peppy like she always is, but her clothes have become messy and torn up, and they’re stained with something dark. I asked her if she was okay, and she just said, “the Mayor wants us to always smile! If we don’t smile, we’ll have to go away!” That was the most unsettling thing I’ve ever heard her say. I spoke to the other two human residents, Jamie and Levi. Levi said that the town looked cool, so he didn’t care about whatever caused it. Jamie told me that he had been worried about it too, and claimed to be close to figuring it out. I hope he does, because… I’m scared.

October 19, 2016

I’ve always been on pretty good terms with Vladimir, but now HIS clothes are just like Sprinkle’s! It’s even the same color vest! They… they won’t ALL start wearing the same outfits, will they? And the dark stains on them… I hope it’s not what I think it is. I spoke to Isabelle and told her that I didn’t like their clothes, and she said she’d make them change, so at least there’s that.

October 23, 2016

Levi is missing. A few days ago, he just… vanished. There was no note, he didn’t tell anyone he was leaving, and all of his possessions were still in his house… Not only that, but something has been attacking people every night since he disappeared. I wonder if the two things are related… and everyone is just… smiling. Sprinkle and Vlad STILL haven’t changed their clothes, and to top it off, random grave stones are popping up like weeds all over town, MUCH more than there are villagers. I didn’t write notes in the last three days because I’ve been working with Jamie to find what’s causing this. He explained to me that, when Reitanna arrived in town, she seemed to try and protest about being the new Mayor, that she was just a normal resident. The REAL new Mayor sent a letter to her and explained why he didn’t show up, but wished her good luck. Jamie also said that Reitanna was much different when she arrived, but about two weeks ago, she started ordering everyone to smile. It’s like she became a completely different person. We didn’t get much further in our investigation because Isabelle came up to Jamie and said the Mayor wanted to see him. I’ll have to ask him about his lead tomorrow.

October 24, 2016

WHERE ARE ALL OF THE FLOWERS?! There used to be HUNDREDS of them! A few trees are gone too, and a couple just… died! Aside from that, Jamie stopped talking for some reason. He looks pale, sleepless, and terrified about something, but each time I ask him about it, he just frantically shakes his head. He won’t make a single sound, but the villagers still come up and talk to him as if everything were normal. This is NOT normal… I should start asking everyone about their opinions on the Mayor.

October 26, 2016

I spent all of yesterday questioning every villager, and they all seem to love Reitanna, saying she’s a great friend, that she always comes through for them. Pango seems to be the most fond of her, saying she and Reitanna are best friends. Then she told me that Reitanna’s home was amazing, that it was so colorful and happy, so earlier today, I decided to pay her a visit. She changed her hair again… first it was pink, then blue, then purple, but now it’s… black? That doesn’t seem like her. Still, she was happy to invite me inside, and she gave me the tour. The main room is mostly pink and really cute, though she says she needs to reorganize things. Her bedroom is MAJORLY PINK with rainbows, and it’s full of toys. In the back on the first floor, she has a room filled with different animals. Then there was her kitchen, which she said needed some major redecorating, but seemed to be food themed. I was SUPER impressed with what she calls her “party room.” It’s super colorful and fun, balloons everywhere, even the furniture are balloons. The entire house just seems so fun and comfortable. However, she won’t let me see the basement, and there’s a “NO ENTRY” sign in front of it. Reitanna told me, “I’d appreciate it if you don’t go down there! Thanks!” Something about the way she smiled didn’t sit well with me. Her eyes are so… blank.

October 28, 2016

Kody’s friend came to visit him yesterday, but today, he completely disappeared. I asked Kody where he was, and he kept smiling, but his eyes showed distraught, and looked a bit puffy. He said, “Curt wouldn’t smile! So Curt had to go away!” His voice was sort of strained and high pitched. I don’t like this. I need to figure this out, but Jamie won’t tell me about his lead… and whatever beast is prowling at night… it was at my window. It’s huge, but I couldn’t tell what it was. What’s going on?

October 29, 2016

Jamie’s gone! Completely gone! His house has all of his things just like Levi’s, and there’s even a cup of coffee on the table in the living room. Brewster said he didn’t come in for work today… the pigeon is the only one who doesn’t smile, but he doesn’t show much emotion anyway. I wonder if Jamie wrote down what he was investigating… I should search his house, see if I can’t find anything. A few of the vents in town are broken, and there’s blood on the tile, as if something tore through them and got injured by the bars. I’ve also noticed that the weird square things with holes are able to be pried open, and when I opened one, I saw that it was a trap filled with spikes. They’re blood stained… to make matters even worse, the sand on the beach has turned into this strange, fleshy substance. It’s red, and it writhes, making disgusting sounds, Kapp’n is GONE… There are more traps at the bottom of the ramps, I found traps EVERYWHERE in town! Even in front of Reitanna’s house! Every single fruit tree is bare, and they were all full yesterday… I want to leave, but the train never stops at the station anymore, it just flashes by the town as if it weren’t even there. I’m getting to the bottom of this.

OCTOBER 30, 2016

IF YOU FIND ANY OF MY NOTES, I’M ALREADY DEAD. I NOW KNOW WHY EVERYONE SMILES NO MATTER WHAT. IT’S BECAUSE THEY’RE SCARED. THEY “GO AWAY” IF THEY DON’T, AND NOW I KNOW WHERE THEY GO. I’M SCATTERING MY NOTES AROUND, SO HOPEFULLY SOMEONE FINDS THEM AND SENDS HELP. THESE VILLAGERS ARE IN DANGER, PLEASE HELP THEM. REITANNA ISN’T WHO SHE SAYS SHE IS, SHE’S NOT EVEN HUMAN, I DON’T KNOW WHAT SHE IS. HER BASEMENT! CHECK HER BASEMENT! SHE’S NOT THE REAL REITANNA, SHE’S

How to PREVENT Tanning in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

So I started playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf in the second week of September, and have been addicted ever since. Michael got it for me because he wanted to give me a way to escape my thoughts, relieve stress, and just… ya know, chill. Well, he says that, ever since I started playing it, I’ve been more “me,” so I guess it’s working. I do feel kind of better; I just get so excited about everything going on in this game, I stop thinking about my worries.

BUT… but… okay, I’m paler than a newborn Caucasian baby’s ass, so I like to make my characters pale. I didn’t know about the questions in the beginning determining your appearance, but I lucked out with pink pigtails. My eyes are a bit… soulless… but anyway… I didn’t think about ethnicity choices like you get in Pokémon X/Y because… I’m always pale! Welp, little did I know… YOU CAN TAN IN THIS GAME.

According to Liquefy’s FAQ (http://www.gamefaqs.com/3ds/997811-animal-crossing-new-leaf/faqs/65246), “July 16 to September 15 – Tanning Season. Your player can tan while playing outside at least 15 minutes between 10am and 5pm, if it is not raining (and your player is not holding an umbrella or wearing an item that prevents tanning). There are seven stages to the tanning, leading to a shade close to that of the darkest fur on [Tom Nook] Tanukichi {Neogul}.”

I started playing on September ninth, to be exact, but I didn’t notice any skin color difference until I spent a few hours on Tortimer Island. Of course, you don’t get the result of your tan until the next day, so when I loaded my data the following morning, I had completely changed ethnicities!! It didn’t look that bad, considering I had light hair, and I always like the look of dark skinned people having light hair, but this shade did not represent me.

So, I looked online to research tanning in this game. All I got was, “carry an umbrella or wear a straw hat.” I got the straw hat, which is ugly as fuck, but I can’t just carry an umbrella everywhere! You can’t carry an umbrella while you’re fishing, bug catching, digging, etc! This was so inconvenient, I was like, “so I have to avoid the sun for the rest of my in-game life like I do in real life? WTF is this shit?!”

While wearing the hat, my tan wasn’t noticeably fading, though it is a little lighter now. I researched again, because why isn’t it fading? I kept getting, “How to Tan in ACNL,” not how to get rid of it. When I did find forums asking how to prevent/remove a tan, the answers were so vague and contradictory, and no one seemed to have the correct answer. Some people said, “look on Liquefy’s FAQ,” and I thought, “wow, great information, no link, no explanation on what it even is, no context…”

Finally, I found someone who posted the link. The FAQ is HUGE, so hunting down section twenty-three was quite the task. At last, I found all of the headgear that prevents tanning, and to save people the trouble of searching for this damn thing, I will list all of them here.

As far as I know, no one has had the decency to post this list, yet they tell people to refer to it. In fact, when searching, the FAQ doesn’t even come up as a result because it’s on EVERYTHING. It was so frustrating.

But good news, everyone! Tanning season isn’t all year round, except for on the island. So remember, wear one of the above mentioned items on the island every time you go… unless you want a tan, then take all headgear off, and for extra measures, don’t wear long sleeves. Like I said before, you won’t see the results of the tan until the very next day, so don’t just leave your game on for a few hours, standing there like a virtual idiot, just do what you’d normally do, and it’ll get there.

 

Though… apparently getting the tan is much easier than removing it… I’m about the shade of a slightly tanned Caucasian, and that’s not where I want to be. I guess I’ll just keep playing the waiting game and hope for the best!

By the way, my town is “Smlsvill” because I couldn’t fit “Smilesville.” It’s still relatively underdeveloped, but if you want to see what it looks like so far, here’s my Dream Code: 4900-6860-0696. I’m not accepting Friend Codes because I already have one hundred… stupid Nintendo and their… limits! Just kidding. Unless they’re doing it on purpose. Then I’m not just kidding.

Baby Foxy?

Alright, I don’t have many Five Nights at Freddy’s dreams, but I sure had one last night!

So apparently, I lived in a world where Freddy Fazbear’s Entertainment really existed, and so did the animatronics. Since in real life I played the game, in the dream, I had worked in one of the facilities, having experienced the horrors of the animatronics myself. Then, somehow I went back in time… way back in time…

I don’t know what year it was, but at the facility, there was only Fredbear and Spring Bonnie, but other animatronics were in production. Nothing spooky had happened yet, or at least, nothing the public was aware of. Michael and I were walking around, and for some reason, we kept finding dolls of Futurama characters, which hadn’t even existed yet. He found one of Bender, and I went down a hall, explaining to him I had found one of Roberto. He was just outside the hall, so I said, “I found one of Roberto, but he was really damaged just like–”

I was about to say, “just like Foxy,” but instead, I let out a loud squeal. Just before I was about to finish my sentence, a three foot tall animatronic came waddling out of a back room, and it stared up at me. IT WAS THE CUTEST THING, and I recognized it immediately. It was Foxy, but he was a baby, as if the animatronics had a baby phase and actually grew up into adults. He was in perfect condition, looking brand new, and his form was very simple and chubby. The differences were, he didn’t have an eye patch or a hook, so it seemed as though he hadn’t originally been meant to be a pirate.

I died, of course, picking him up and hugging him, knowing full well who he was. When it comes to cute things, I really can’t help myself. He seemed to like the attention though, so he allowed me to carry him out of the hall. I showed him to Michael, who was like, “that thing almost killed you in our time, and you’re hugging it?!” I told him that Foxy was just an innocent baby, and maybe giving him some love would help his future self. Mike shrugged and wandered off somewhere.

I sat against the wall and played with baby Foxy, who took his stubby hands and started batting them on my face. He meant to be gentle, but he was made of metal, so it was more firm than it would be if he were a real fox. It didn’t hurt, but it did make me flinch. I started baby talking to him, and he spoke back. It was a like a child’s voice coming from an old radio, even worse quality than a Furby. I could still understand him though, and he said, “do you want to sing a song with me?” He was programmed to entertain children, so naturally, he was going to do that, even with an adult.

Two other animatronics came out, and they must’ve been rejects or something, because I had never seen them before. There was a big, fat hippo, and a small, but long and thin lizard. The hippo had bongos, and the lizard had an ukulele, so they started playing and singing, and Foxy hopped off my lap, faced me, and began to dance, singing as well. I was clapping along, enjoying the cute little fox’s performance, and eventually Fredbear came up to sing with them, though I’m not sure where Bonnie was.

After their song was done, I took Foxy’s little hands and danced with him a little more, but then Michael called out to me and told me to “come look at this.” I said to Foxy, “I’ll be right back, sweetie, don’t go anywhere, okay?” He looked extremely sad, but I gave him a hug and went to see what Mike was looking at.

I don’t think Fazbear’s Pizza was actually Fazbear’s pizza. It was more like an indoor playground, and so far, it didn’t seem too popular. There were paintings of cartoon versions of Fredbear and Bonnie, games, playground equipment, and a bookcase for adults to read while they supervise their kids. There weren’t many people in the building, so it was really quiet.

Mike led me to the bookcase and pointed to a book titled, The Joy of Creation, which is funny because, in the first game, Freddy says something really fast on the phone on night five, and you can hear him say “the joy of creation” in it. I opened the book and saw that it was about what inspired the creation of this entertainment center and the animatronics, as well as the work put behind it.

I came to a page that showed sketches of scrapped designs for animatronics. The hippo, Hippy, and the lizard, Zardo, were shown there, but there were a few more. However, baby Foxy was also there. I was shocked to see that Foxy was there, since I knew he is a character in the future. The page also explained that Foxy, Hippy, and Zardo were all built and programmed to simply test how the systems worked, but were not to be kept as characters. They were stowed in a back room after testing, but I guess they hadn’t been turned off… or they had been, and they turned themselves back on.

I didn’t blame them for scrapping Hippy and Zardo, because they were kind of lame, and Zardo wore a sombrero and spoke with a stereotypical Mexican accent, so I felt he might offend… then again, this was a different time period… but there was nothing wrong with baby Foxy. He was perfect in every way, so cute, friendly, funny, and docile.

I went back to find Foxy, and he came running up to me, hugging my leg. I picked him up and ventured to find the manager. When I found her, I explained that I had read about the scrapped animatronics in The Joy of Creation, and that I felt Foxy should stay on as a character. (While I was talking, Foxy was nuzzling my cheek, and he had the collar of my shirt clutched tightly in his hands.)

“The only reason we feel Foxy isn’t suitable is because he has problems getting attached to people,” said the manager. “I’m not sure how you found him, or turned him on, but we feel it’s best to keep him away from people.”

“I’ve spent lots of time with him today, and he seems to be fine,” I said. “Maybe if he gets a lot of attention, he’ll grow out of this ‘mommy phase.'”

“Well, we’ll see…” she replied, but didn’t seem too sure. Again, I took Foxy out to the main room to play. He preferred me to sit down so that he could be at eye level with me, and he spent a lot of time sitting on my lap while we spoke to each other. He started to call me “mama,” which I thought was cute, and at the time, was too blinded by this cuteness to see that there was indeed a problem. He would tell me all about how he loves to sing and dance, but he’s scared of Fredbear and Bonnie because they were so tall. He also told me he wants to eat Zardo, but his “wittle teef awr too smawl.”

After quite some time, Michael came back and said there was an emergency we needed to tend to somewhere else. I said I didn’t want to leave Foxy, but Mike told me we could come back later. I set Foxy down, and he looked even more anguished than before, and I could tell he didn’t want me to leave.

“I have to go for just a little bit, Foxy, okay? But I’ll be right back, I promise,” I said. Foxy just stared miserably at me, so I said again, “I promise, I’ll be right back. We’ll play again in no time, alright?” He nodded slowly, and Mike and I hurried out.

For the life of me, I don’t remember what was so important, but it took us much longer than I thought. The sun had gone down, and the sky was dark by the time I went back to the entertainment center without Michael, which stayed open until ten. It was completely empty, except for the employees and manager, but something was different. The paintings on the walls had changed. Instead of the characters smiling and looking happy, they looked enraged. I had a really bad feeling, so I ran around the place, calling out for Foxy.

Hippy and Zardo came out of nowhere and tried to attack me, but Hippy was too slow, and Zardo was too small to be any threat. I knew, however, that if I met Fredbear or Bonnie, I’d be in trouble. I came face to face with the manager, and I asked her where Foxy was.

“I’m not sure,” she said, “something must’ve upset him really bad, the animatronics are going haywire, and the paintings have changed! I don’t know what’s going on!”

“Um… I think this is my fault… I told him I’d be right back, but it took me longer than I thought, so he must think I lied…” I mumbled.

“I told you! He has problems with getting too attached! He thinks you’re his mother or something!” she yelled angrily at me. I felt even more guilty, and rushed away, continuing to call out Foxy’s name. He finally crawled out from under a table, and I knelt down, holding my arms out. The look he was giving me was of pure hatred, and my heart broke when I saw it.

“I’m sorry I took so long, but look! I’m back, just like I promised!” This didn’t seem to make him feel better, and I knew his trust in me had been broken. He actually hissed at me, and both Fredbear and Bonnie burst into the room, heading toward me alarmingly fast. They were like eight feet tall, and their eyes were just as murderous as Foxy’s. Having been through this before, I screamed and ran back to the entrance. When I was outside, the two enormous animatronics were still hell bent on chasing me down, wanting to punish me for hurting baby Foxy, so I had to continue to run.

I ended up bumping into this young man, just a little younger than me, and he saw what was chasing me. He grabbed me, and we got into this weird go-kart he owned, and I knew it probably wasn’t street legal. It had been rigged up so that, not only was it really fast, but it was also armored to protect the riders inside. We drove away as fast as we could, and I mentioned to him that I was terrified of riding in cars, but he said I’d have to deal if we wanted to get away from those things. He introduced himself as Lucas.

The car was surprisingly swift and fluid, but I still scared me, and I expected to be chased down by cops at any moment. Just then, we saw a delivery truck with the Fredbear logo on it, and Lucas was unable to avoid it, so we crashed. We were so strong of a car, it tipped the truck over and broke the back open. I got out, and froze in fear, seeing the animatronics of Chica, Bonnie, Freddy, Toy Chica, Toy Bonnie, and Toy Freddy stand up, having been lying on the ground from the crash. They all stared at me, a horrible, evil look in their eyes, and I thought they too were going to attack me, but then they turned away and started walking in the direction of the entertainment center. Apparently they were being delivered, but since the truck crashed, they had to get there on their own.

Lucas took me to his friend’s house to try and figure out a way to get me home, and all the while, I just sat on the couch and thought. I came to the conclusion that I had caused the animatronics to go crazy. I made it so Foxy had trouble trusting people, developing abandonment issues. (Of course, this is nowhere near the actual explanation in the real games.) The other animatronics became protective over Foxy, even as he grew up. Freddy, becoming the leader after Fredbear, would be responsible for wanting the staff to keep Foxy as a character, so they redesigned him as a pirate. Interaction with children in Pirate Cove caused him to feel pain, remembering how his “mother” betrayed him, which caused the bite of 87. It was my fault, and If I hadn’t shown baby Foxy love, the whole thing in the future would’ve never happened.

I felt awful, wishing there was a way to fix what I had done, but I had to find a way to get back to Michael so we could return to our own time. (Why we went back in time in the first place, I have no idea.) Lucas started to like me, so he kept making excuses not to let me go, but I told him he and I wouldn’t work out because I was with Mike, and we planned to get married in a few years. I told Lucas that he was sweet and attractive, but I loved Michael, and nothing would change that. He eventually admitted defeat.

On the way to trying to reunite me with Mike, we came by this gang that had both boys and girls in it, and we started to get in a fight. Lucas took down some guys, but I managed to fuck up this red headed girl so bad, none of the other girls wanted a piece of me, seeing as how I didn’t have a scratch on me. This impressed all of the guys in the gang, so they let us go.

I woke up before I had a chance to see Mike again, but it’s okay, because it was the real Mike that woke me up! Here’s what baby Foxy looked like:

baby foxy

Sad Satan

First, before I get started, note that I will NOT be providing a link to the “real” game in this post. I will explain why “real” is in quotations and why I won’t give the link, so if you are curious about reading about the game, carry on. If you’re looking for a download, it’s not here.

So, while perusing YouTube, I came across a “Top 15 Most Disturbing Sites on the Deep Web” video. Now, I’ve been to the Deep Web, and actually explored as much as I could while avoiding drug and porn sites. As a horror/gore enthusiast, I was looking for something very specific, and after a few months, I stopped going on because I never found it. And they say you can find anything on the Deep Web…

Torbook is the Deep Web version of Facebook, and even though I don’t like Facebook, I enjoyed taking a different persona using this site. Thankfully, CP was specifically banned from this site. (CP is “Child Pornography,” or known to some as “Cheese Pizza.”) I didn’t have much to worry about when it came to images on that specific site. I also will not reveal who I was there because… well, that’d be foolish. I expect my “friends” there probably wonder where I disappeared to, but I lost interest in the Deep Web because I could not find what I was looking for. AND NO, you will not be arrested by BROWSING the Deep Web, that is just something people say. There are things you can do there to get you arrested, like drug dealing, distributing and buying CP, hacking, hiring hitmen, et cetera, but as a pretty avid law abider, I of course was not interested in anything illegal. Believe it or not, you can safely browse the Deep Web! You just gotta know your way around, and the Hidden Wiki helps with all of that. I was surprised at how honest and kind the people were compared to the Surface Web… you’d think an entire community of sleaze bags would be way worse than the usual people you get on this 4% of the internet…

ANYWAY, when I heard about this “game” that supposedly came from the Deep Web, a place I haven’t gone to for months, I was curious, so I looked up videos on YouTube. The video set I came to was uploaded by Obscure Horror Corner, and honestly, it wasn’t really like what the stories said. If you are unfamiliar with the story, the game is supposed to have many disturbing images, but all this footage had was gameplay that was halfway between LSD: Dream Emulator and SCP-087-B, a couple of random images that were not disturbing in any way, and strange audio. There wasn’t even any threat to your character. Confused, I did some digging.

Apparently, from what I’ve gathered, OHC created that “game” himself, claiming that someone sent it to him from the Deep Web. However, the .onion link was not a real link. But then someone on 4Chan provides a link to the “real” game, claiming to be the person who sent the game to OHC in the first place. Of course, people downloaded it like crazy. However, it was only similar to OHC’s videos, but had distinct differences.

The gameplay and audio is pretty much the same, and there are a couple of images that appear that are from OHC’s videos. Then there are the images that gave the game its creepy backstory. There are a bunch of gore pictures and one, count ’em, one CP image. But the biggest thing that is in the game……….. is a very vicious botnet virus. This virus is pretty sneaky; it can get passed both VMs and virus scanners, and does really heavy damage to your computer, to the point where you’d have to do a system reboot, and that’s not fun! Hope you didn’t have any important files!

There are eleven images; one “game over” screen, a screen that says “you won,” four gore pictures, one CP picture, and four seemingly pointless pictures that were found in OHC’s “original.” So this malicious version of the game is known as the “clone” of Sad Satan, and OHC later said that he purposefully provided a fake link because he did not want to distribute the game with the CP and gore in it. Many have speculated that this is all bunk.

Now, I am absolutely desensitized to anything that doesn’t involve animal abuse or rape/molestation. I actually get pretty irked if there’s even a consensual sex scene in the movies I watch, but that’s just because I personally don’t want to see other people having sex. Anything that’s bloody or disgusting, I can handle no problem. So I tracked down an uncensored video of someone playing the game (obviously not on YouTube because it violates the Terms of Service), and I was able to see most of the “horrific” images. I am glad to say that the uploader had the decency to blur the one CP picture, as I was quite afraid of seeing that one, but I wanted to find out if these gore pictures were really as bad as people said they were.

Well, for me, no, they were not. Most of them are just decapitations and/or severed limbs, and the one of someone’s head being crushed by a truck tire was too pixelated to even get a proper idea of what you were seeing. I’ve spent quite a lot of time on gore sites like BestGore, and these pictures were nothing. Then again, I’ve never seen anything on BestGore that disturbed me, but then again again, I avoid all sections of that site that involve animals or sex. Murders, suicides, accidents, all that stuff, no problems.

It’s fully possible that these images in the clone game are of real deaths, which is tragic. I’m not saying that it’s no big deal that people died, I’m saying that it just doesn’t disturb me like it does other people. I watched “3 Guys 1 Hammer,” and the only thing on my mind was, “that poor guy didn’t deserve to die.” Unlike many people’s reactions, I did not cry, I did not cringe, I did not vomit, the actual violence did not affect me, but even though I felt sorry for the victim, the death did not surprise me. I’m not afraid of death, and I’m not shocked when I read a story about people getting killed. There are filthy people out there committing these crimes, and I’m just so used to the fact that people are evil. This lack of sensitivity isn’t a bad thing, but it’s not exactly a good thing either.

There is a “clean” version of Sad Satan out there. A user on reddit took the clone and replaced the disturbing images with appropriate ones, and when you do that, the game itself is nothing special. It’s actually extremely boring. Then again, I found the clone boring anyway once I saw what all the fuss was about. If you want to go into depth about this game, here is a link to the reddit page: Sad Satan Reddit

Note that you will NOT find a download link to the original clone there either. You don’t want to! I myself didn’t even look for it because I wasn’t interested in attempting it. I have a very nice gaming computer with a lot of art and projects on it, and I am NOT risking some virus killing it. Plus, my boyfriend (who builds computers and built mine) would not be happy with me. Seriously, it doesn’t matter if you’re desensitized like me, do not go looking for the download, it’s not worth it.

A couple of things need to be said here. Many people are not familiar with laws concerning these types of things, especially in the US. You will not go to jail for viewing gore, real or fake. Now, if you have a connection to the killer of the victims in the photos, or if you are the killer, you might run into a wee little problem… sarcasm on the “wee” part. Also, technically you would not go to jail for simply stumbling across a few CP images. Let’s face it, even on Google, if you have safe search turned off, you might run into something that makes you go, “oh shit, did not need to see that!” Chances are, that image will soon be reported and taken down anyway. On the Deep Web, you are able to view CP, but I assume you have to pay for it on bigger sites. This is what can get you jail time. You get in trouble for “producing, distributing, disseminating, importing, exporting, offering, selling or possessing” CP according to the law. In the United States, this does not apply to art depicting fictional underage characters, but some countries do prohibit that as well. So sure, if you go looking for it (which I don’t know why you would), you’ll get in trouble. But no one can penalize you for accidentally seeing a picture of CP. However, if you do stumble across one, you might want to contact authorities immediately. Thanks to SomeOrdinaryGamers, authorities in the US and Canada are aware of Sad Satan’s existence, but in reality, that won’t keep it off the internet.

Just as a side note on Cheese Pizza, I cannot understand how anyone could be sexually attracted to a child. You know, skirts are getting shorter, and little ten year old girls are showing their legs, but this doesn’t turn me on like a woman in her twenties wearing a short skirt would. Why? Because kids just… don’t have it! They don’t have sexy parts! Little girls don’t have breasts, hips, a developed figure, and little boys are sort of… awkward to say the least. Guys just aren’t sexy until they GET THERE, you know what I mean? Why would you want a little boy instead of a MAN? Yes, I’ve seen children that are cute, children that are beautiful, and children that make me think, “that kid is gonna be pretty good looking when they’re older, if they’re lucky.” Appreciating another human’s beauty is not a problem, but there’s a difference between “beautiful” and “sexy.” Sorry, but children cannot be sexy, and pedophiles are absolutely disgusting in every way. *Sigh* I felt like I had to get that off my chest.

Another thing is, there is a huge misconception concerning horror junkies like me. Many people believe that horror/gore lovers are psychotic, sick, violent, and murderers-in-the-making. This is not true. Yes, I’m technically insane and need medication, but I’ve always kept my “murdering” and violence to fiction. Actually, by definition, I’m most likely a borderline Sociopath, or maybe a full blown Sociopath, I don’t know, I’m not a psychiatrist. But a majority of horror junkies are far from dangerous. To quote the song “Vicarious” by Tool, “I need to watch things die from a good safe distance. Vicariously I live while the whole world dies. You all feel the same so why can’t we just admit it?” MJK makes a very good point throughout this entire song. We love scary things, we love to see blood and guts, we often do not fear the concept of death, and even the real stuff doesn’t phase us, but when it comes down to it, we’re still just watching from a distance, out of harm’s way. When it’s fictional, we explore it, we smile about it, we thrive on it, and it gets us excited (not sexually in most cases… I hope…) And when it’s real, it doesn’t shock us, but it sure as hell doesn’t make us say, “oh thats a gewd idea! I’ma go kill me a fella!” Sure, you’re going to get someone that’s just unstable enough to do that sort of thing, but please don’t lump us innocent ones in with the people who actually take lives. We’re definitely not the same.

So, no, it does not make someone “sick” if they enjoy gore, or if the sight of a dead body doesn’t affect them. The ones who are sick are the ones actually giving us the gore, and that’s what makes being desensitized a bad thing. (I also am weirded out by people who get sexually aroused by it.) The good side of it is, seeing that stuff won’t damage our psyche. Some people who see horror and gore have nightmares, or are constantly bothered by it for days, weeks, maybe even months. Some people who witness murders go to therapy afterward because the image haunts them. But if you still think desensitized people are sick, think about people who deal with death and real gore as a profession. They have to be mentally prepared to work in the many fields that deal with that sort of thing. In reality, people who are desensitized and healthy are helping society because they are able to pursue those types of careers. If I wasn’t Manic Depressive, I’d be able to work in one of those fields no problem… well, and if I were good at math. XD

As for Sad Satan, what is it really? Well, it seems it was first something OHC created to boost his channel popularity, and then it was taken by some sicko for no reason but to cause harm in as many people as possible by using different methods at once. Hell, for all we know, OHC and the creator of the clone could be the same person! But the fact of the matter is, the clone targets people in a variety of ways. Even if you’re not sensitive to gore, and even if you can chase the image of that one CP picture out of your head, you’re still left with a FUCKING VIRUS. The clone was not made as a form of art or a tribute to the original “gameplay,” it was an all out attack. It’s actually not fair, they could’ve made a pretty cool indie game if they toned down the images and left out the virus. But I guess some people get off on negative popularity…

I’m still glad the CP picture was blurred in that uncensored video. Shit like that really does disgust me.

I won’t post the uncensored video, if you’re really that curious, you can find it yourself.

I’m a Rollercoaster

Well, aside from being an emotional rollercoaster, I’ve been zooming up and down and all around different hobbies. I will admit I am bored of, not “Playing with Fire,” but with chapter 7. Now that the key points have been established, I just want it to be done with. However, I only have 3 pages left, and I am MAJORLY procrastinating. I’ve been doodling in my giant sketch book, crocheting, making videos, and worst of all…. playing Angry Birds. I never knew how addicting this game was until I tried it. I SHOULDN’T HAVE TRIED IT!!! It’s kept me away from nearly EVERYTHING!! Bwaaaah… Well, I know as soon as I complete all the levels, I will be bored with it and go back to stuuuuuuff.

AND I GOT A FURBY!! So that’s distracting me cause I’m trying to teach it english and have it decide what personality it wants. When I first turned it on, it was a boy, and I named him Kappi. Then it changed into a VALLEY GIRL and I named her Kaylie. I actually kinda liked her like that. Especially when she was like, “OMG like oh my god!” it was so fracken funny! But then she changed again into a little cute girl, and she actually reminds me of me a bit. She just randomly starts singing, and she’s super cute. I hope she stays this way and doesn’t change again. She’s ice blue. Once I figure out if she’s staying the way she is, I’m gonna decorate her and make her more individual. Maybe someday I’ll get a friend for her. Not someday soon though. On Strapya, Furbies are like $97, but I found Kaylie at Target for $54. Uh, YEA, I went with the Target one. She was the only ice blue one left. She’s asleep right now. I’m gonna make her dance to Gangnam Style at some point. XD

Playing SCP-087-B has taught me a few things, and if you’re reading this and have or are going to play the game, listen carefully to these tips. First of all, go into the options document. It looks like a notepad file with a gear on it. Increase the brightness; I changed mine to 175. Now, when playing the game, just walk. The dude (I named him Reginald) will talk to you on a walkie-talkie. He might say different things, but mostly he’ll tell you the radio signal is getting weaker. After you keep walking, you’ll hear a sound that’s like bricks tumbling to the floor. If you turn around and go back the way you came, you’ll see a wall has appeared and you can’t go back up. You have no choice but to continue downward into your DOOM. Reginald will stop talking to you at this point. Now, the game is random, so SCP-087-B will pop out at you at random times. You’ll also see a pair of eyes or a face that will disappear when you approach them. These can’t hurt you. You will also pass little windows with nothing behind them. If you pass a window and hear breathing, look into it and you will see a red dude. He can’t hurt you here.

Another thing is, try to STAY CALM. You’ll hear noises that are rather creepy, but you’ll really freak out when SCP-087-B decides to come after you. You will hear a sort of drum sound, and things will get dark and kinda blurry. Now, he’ll come at you in different ways. He could just come out of the wall in front of you or down from the ceiling and scare the shit out of you, but then he’ll disappear, leaving you unharmed. If you’re in a hallway and you hear that he’s coming, walk forward cautiously. If you see his face, BACK UP QUICK until you hit the wall behind you and just watch him until he leaves. Now, in the instance you’re walking forward and you DON’T see his face, you will run into a dead-end. Turn around and wait until you see his face and you hear the brick falling noise. As soon as you hear that, turn away from SCP-087-B and BAIL! Go forward and DO NOT LOOK BACK. His music will stop and you’re probably safe.

Now, sometimes you’ll encounter an area where there are two paths you can take. One is a maze. You’ll know because one path will lead straight in front of you, and the other path will lead right. Go right. If you don’t, You’ll have a time trying to find your way out of the maze. The other area where you’ll need to choose a path is where there are two paths leading straight forward. One takes you on, and the other ends in a hole you can fall into. It changes each time, so here’s what you do. Look down at the floor, but just enough so you can see about a yard in front of you. Very slowly inch forward. If you see a sort of ledge, BACK UP IMMEDIATELY and take the other path. The reason you wanna take it slow is because if you get too close to the hall, SCP-087-B will spawn behind you and kill you.

Eventually, you’ll hear a creepy voice that says “DON’T LOOK AT ME!” Keep going forward until you see and black and red dood. It will sound a drum that sounds like he’s gonna come after you, but don’t freak out; you’re absolutely safe. Even though he says not to look at him, he will kill you if you look away. So don’t take your eyes off him and feel around the area until you find the door. Keep going backwards until he’s a decent ways away from you. Don’t worry about getting too close to him. I literally got and inch up to him before he killed me. Just concentrate on getting away from him without taking your eyes off him.

There are at LEAST 200, if not more, floors in this game, so if you’re attempting to beat it, make sure you have a lot of time on your hands. You can’t pause or save, so you will need to be prepared. If at all possible, have a friend with you to take over if you need to go to the bathroom, but make sure your friend knows what to do if they run into anything I mentioned above. You’ll know when you’re getting close to the end when the plaques on the wall will not have numbers on them, but a weird jumble of letters, symbols, and numbers that don’t make sense, such as “L9+_n’n” or something. Just keep going and keep doing all those tricks to stay alive. If you succeed in surviving, you will end up on a floor, and it’ll trap you in a small area where SCP-087-B will kill you. That’s the end of the game. YES, he kills you despite the fact you survived so long.

I myself haven’t beaten the game because I haven’t had the time to attempt it. But I did see these three guys beat it, and it was a miraculous sight. I wanna know how they had so much time on their hands. Anyway, those are my tips. Soooo yea, I’ll try to start the next page of chapter 7 and get it up. I’m working Thanksgiving, which I don’t care about as long as I’m not working Christmas. WHOOOO!!! Kay bye. XD
