Home Alone

I saw a Proxy get defeated by a doorknob today. It was hilarious.

To elaborate, one of the precautions I took following my beating in order to stop it ever happening again was to create a variety of traps around the house. Tripwires. Rudimentary laser activated devices. Windows that don’t take kindly to being smashed or opened. Seemingly innocent objects you do not want to touch, and more I won’t say.

Speaking of the penultimate one, this unfortunate found that the doorknobs are electrified. I didn’t actually see him per se, but there was a buzz that went on for some time until I remembered what it was and cut the current, followed by the sound of someone falling over on the doorstep. I wasn’t sure how much voltage was ‘not enough’, so I’d just connected it to the mains.

Of course, they could have easily not been a Proxy, but that then begs the question of why they ignored the big ‘DANGER KEEP OUT: NO RESPONSIBILITY TAKEN FOR THE RESULTS OF IGNORING THIS SIGN’ sign on the gate. It’s not exactly missable; I put reflector strips on it just in case.

Tall, dark and slender also made an appearance, hovering outside a window. I didn’t dare take my eyes off him, but eventually I blinked and he was gone. I opened the front door half expecting him to suddenly be there, but there was nothing. Not even a collapsed Proxy. I presume they’d recovered enough to walk away. If you’re reading this, I recommend salve for the burn you no doubt have on one hand.

Progress Report

Experiment status reports. I'd originally planned out seven, planning to keep all but the first two secret until the results were obtained, but seeing as I might not now survive to get those, I'll expose them here.

#1: Already detailed. Collecting data.
#2: Already detailed. Collecting data.
#3: Active Defense. Designing blueprints.
#4: Passive Defense. Requires aforementioned tape. On hold.
#5: Physiology: Requires Proxy blood. Collecting samples.
#6: Physiology Part Deux: Requires Azoth. On hold.

I've also been talking to Carter. Exchange of information, and promise of mutual exchange of research upon death. So if he dies first I win muahaha. It's only just occurred to me to wonder why he has such things as informants. And how can I get that kind of contact network. He seems to have things well in hand, though.

In addition I've asked Rise for a copy of a tape of Slender repelling static designed by one Brandon, and recieved an affirmation with the caveat of possibility, which is more than I'd hoped for.

This sort of thing keeps happening, and we might just get ourselves a Science Division.

Experiment #2: Detection

Equipment required: Baby monitors, Cameras, This app, This app or something of similar function, A radio, Measuring tape, Chalk

One consistent thing about Slenderman is that his presence causes static and distortion in the audio of electronic devices. What causes this phenomenon may be due to Sigma radiation, but until I can get my hands on a detector to verify, I have no way of confirming this. Certain proxies have also been seen to have similar if weaker effects; this is not particularly surprising, but due to the uncertainties involved I cannot use them for testing.

Since this experiment is dependant on both his presence and him staying still long enough for me to get my data I have no way of guessing the time frame it will take. Experiment #1 if complete would give me a rough idea but c’est la vie. I can’t wait six months.

Each sighting will have recorded the distance of Slenderman from the devices, the levels of static they emitted and, for the cameras, the angles of view.

The results will be one step further in making more accurate, directional detectors. Eventually I hope to make something approaching the sensitivity of a Sigma detector, even though the only one extant took years of development.
