1 Literary UPICK || Chapters 7-16 on Mon Feb 29, 2016 8:30 pm

HE’S BEING LESS useful than usual, wandering around the historical nonfiction section and mumbling something about temples. Probably has some sort of paper due soon. She leaves him to it.

In the meantime, she occupies herself with facing the shelves, rehoming displaced volumes and lining them up at the front. Like a military inspection, she marches the aisles until every fleck of dust is cleaned and every spine stands at attention. It’s during this examination that she finds it, curled lying a dying animal in the recesses of the manga section. She excavates it and surveys the damage. Unsalvageable. The pages are shredded, the cover completely detached.

“Mice?” she wonders aloud.

Nobody answers.

TIKI THE TROLL was jailed.
RASEI was stunned.

“It wasn’t actually my instincts that
made me eat your crush…”

AEIOU was killed.

So, uh, hi.

I guess, uh, something did happen. When I, I mean.




I have no idea. I like to think I’m dead, but I was informed upon my lynch that I had the ability to post in all four of the split threads, but I couldn't do anything useful like vote or be voted on or spec in them. I assume I could do this because the last two phases were basically:

As for rollover and my ratio flip not showing up in it:

This was not something I was informed would happen ahead of time.

I think I’m more dead than alive, since Lucas has claimed mortician and appears to have gotten my 100% role information with absolute certainty? In addition, my role PM mentions my potential death (maybe) (i don’t know???), but that doesn’t explain the fucked up ratio. I have asked and the hosrs are not telling me. I am going to assume I am in this weird, hellish dimension, cut off from time and space and no one will ever know if I'm alive or dead. I have restrictions on posting and life is terrible. it’s me, the cat, am i dead or alive, etc.,

This is the worst timeline. This is a deeper mystery than figuring out who the mafia are


idfk man. I’m under the impression that someone targeted me since I got notified I could do this by D3 end in a flavourless hosr message, but given everything else that is unexpected about my role, I would also not be surprised if this is also a part of my role


Lucas knows my entire role, and everything he said is 100% accurate. He definitely has a bonafide copy of my role PM given what he's said, and he can attest that it is fucking weird as all hell. I don't think he can post it because of the claiming rules, but it's actually a mess and I’m convinced he actually has a copy of my role because he even said it was ~1000 words haha. He is legitimately investigative, but…

idk if you're scared of ghosts and dying, don't touch nautilus's body? ?? but i did and it felt kinda good, she's still kind of warm and soft
he needs to leave. send him to jail SEND HIM TO JAIL SO WHOEVER IS BULLYING HIM STOPS BULLYING HIM!!!!!!!!!!! in a weird roundabout protective way. protect lucas but also, why did he even post this


My role PM is 4 pages when you paste it into Word. Seriously.

If you have a role PM that states in plain English “you can do x”... I... I do not. Lucas has basically summarized my entire role PM.


The hosrs were really ramping up my role like "whoa man cool things happen if you are ever targeted for a kill or a lynch!!!" Other than that, uh. Like. This is the first thing I sent the hosts after I read my PM:

[22/02/2016 8:21:30 PM] Me: Oh my god
[22/02/2016 8:21:40 PM] Me: This role PM is spectacular, but what exactly is my role power
[22/02/2016 8:21:51 PM] Me: Is it just that I can never die and only exist in a state of undeath like what is this
You can guess what kind of answer I got. But my PM is split up into three parts (two halves and then one side bit): one references the Navidson Record, one references Truant's narration, and one references Zampano. The posts I made before I got lynched were basically my guesses as to what would happen with my role, because my role PM is unforgivingly unclear (Lucas can probably attest to that), and almost everything I’ve asked has been replied with by a coy mysterious face. ...Except for the fact that the "fun" begins at a certain point…

Man looking back here I thought my role was pretty boring/overly mysterious

No one is going to let me join a upick again at this rate


However, during the house phases, I did become privy to some information. Presumably coming from that part in my role PM where the wording cuts off mid-sentence on the upper right hand side that’s sideways. This probably makes no sense, but Lucas can confirm part of my role PM is sideways. Why.

I was given information about actions on N2 at the N2>D3 rollover, and I think this is because my role basically took over the thread. Since I only have this one outlet to say things in and I don’t have the liberty of being able to edit it after it’s up, I’m going to withhold information on the more sensitive abilities (protection/investigation). But I am going to give you all some info that isn't entirely about me, which is also hopefully ambiguous enough to keep maf on their toes:

There are more than three active roles capable of redirection in this game who acted on N2. Two are Blaire and eleni, going from claims. Whoever made Lulu target herself, since that’s the only explanation I can think of outside of conditional jails for Lulu to be jailed and yet have sent out a jail is likely the third. These three redirectors are not the only active redirection roles (though I am unsure if they are dedicated redirectors, for what it's worth; just that more than three redirection-styled actions were sent out on N2, though I can’t say for certain if all of them had an observable effect on anything). If all of these redirection roles are dedicated and can act repeatedly, I highly doubt all of them are town. No clue on what books/players/alignments, though.

I have no idea how the groups were sorted, because my role PM doesn’t even give me information about the thread splitting; it just says ooooOoooooOOo parallel universes and I figured the forum might be affected but I had no fucking idea that the thread would split into four

Anyways, I’ve become really busy with work lately, so, um, unless the hosrs bug me to look at the game again for whatever reason, I’ll probably be signing off for a while… !!  You can do it town (and neutral), I believe in you o9

in my weird, ??? state212

DAY FOUR begins.

HE CALLS IN on Monday with a modest proposal. Out cold with a cold, he spends the whole day sleeping.

NO ONE was lynched.

A neutral has achieved WIN CONDITION A.

NIGHT FOUR begins.

It’s been a while since I’ve maffed, folks,
So forgive me if this shot is cheap,
But some fuck stole my Win B on Night One,
So now you’re all going to sleep.

I claimed early on by mistake (orz)
Hadn't planned on making a peep.
But it all worked out in the end, right?
Cuz I get to make ya’ll fucking sleep.

Thanks for leaving me be, friends,
Until my Win A I could reap.
But unfortunately it's kind of a shit deal,
Since it means that you all gotta sleep.

I’m ending this Day phase early.
It could be worse so don’t fucking weep.
I could’ve lynched someone, solo,
But I’m just gonna make you nerds sleep.

So put down your spec lists and nap, dears,
Your thoughts to yourself you should keep,
You’re not lynching anyone this phase, loves,
So just Go The Fuck To Sleep.

Oh, you're that book?

I was about to say that I've never seen a day-time phase end, but "Go the fuck to sleep" makes sense in this context. And you said "go" earlier, I think?

hm hm hm.

Clever rhyme.

That me! I had a stun. Emphasis on had; now that I've reached my win condition, it has vanished into the winds. I am harmless like a fluffy pillow. I can still make someone nap if they particularly need to sleep, but it's all flavor and otherwise completely pointless. However, if anyone particularly needs some extra sleep, I am the pan for the job.

a spacely sanctuary.
shut to foreigners.
scholars mumbling a familiar but unknown tone.

one half gone, leaving for the stars.

Mafia is going to get a free shot at some innocent town. I'm pretty sure that I was stunned because I said I was going to use my stun against either Five or Chinomi.

oh hello new thread


new night i guess :v

ok so @lulu's last post from the last thread, couldn't that just mean that the butt book could be the redirector except it redirects to you?? if the jail was reflected onto you wouldn't that mean that all the other things that happen to you... don't? so they wouldn't in aeiou's results? idk

as for tiki, what if, piggybacking onto that previous paragraph, and if tiki's jail is from the mafia jailer.... what if tiki was made to reflect the jail onto tiki? tiki are you maf

EDIT: HOLY SHIT i just realized, if anything has a reflective theme, it's definitely Pounded in the Butt by My Own Book "Pounded in the Butt by My Own Butt"

EDIT x2: quite appropriately, i pagebottomed
