We have a lot of them. People are dying, true, but some of us are surviving long enough to do some serious damage, either in the form of damage to Slendy or his band of merry mooks, or in the form of information. Vivi and I and many of the bloggers are still alive. We're learning. One day, maybe not soon, we'll be able to defeat him.
Notes on the Labyrinth: If you have been in the labyrinth, at some point, you will probably come across a nearly-dead version of someone close to you. That THING will follow you out of the labyrinth and stalk you until you kill it, which can be done. I saw Vivi kill hers. Well, didn't see it, but I saw her grab it and slam it's head into the kitchen counter and then shoot it for good measure. Then break down crying. Fucking Slendy. I had never seen Vivi cry before He showed up.
We went out for lunch today. Valentines Day. We booked ourselves a table in a nice little restaurant in one of the main shopping precincts and had lunch and just...talked. About our family, about school, a bit of nostalgia...we were a normal young couple with normal lives for a while.
This is the first valentines day I've actually had someone to spend with. I mean, Vivi and I used to spend it together but more in a "We're both single, let's go to the arcade and discuss anime and books and crappy films!" kind of way.
In a good way.
