Atticus M, Dietre A, Archie W

[Locked to Atticus M]

Sir, I wish I could give you more notice, but I think if I don't go now I won't. I'm resigning my position. Take care.

[Locked to Archie W]

I thought this would be easy Thank you for that night, and the night that followed. Thank you, for everything. I have an opportunity to leave town am leaving town, but I hope one day I'll see you again.

[Locked to Dietre]

[...] This isn't any easier. [...] I'm sorry I couldn't stay. You are wildly talented, Dietre, and you deserve all the best that life can offer. I hope one day to see you again, but if I don't, I wish you only the best.

Secret Santa/Delivery: Caleb R

[Caleb asked for enough money to leave town. He gets it in cold, hard cash. Santa doesn't believe in leaving a trace and he has no trust in any institution outside of the self. There's no bank account. Instead, delivered to Caleb is several thousand dollars' worth of Swiss francs, along with tens of thousands of dollars in cash. There's a burner phone, too. It all comes in a fireproof box that can be opened with the keys that are handed over when the box is signed for.

Tucked between two one-thousand dollar bills is a slip of white paper, bare of everything except a sloppy script wishing Caleb 'Good luck disappearing.']

I guess Santa wants me to help you pick out your presents this year.

Did you attend the festivities? I’m fairly sure there was apple bobbing.

[Locked to Daniel W.]
All is well?

How are you?


Public&Wren I


To the gentleman I met in the ghost town who was [...] looking to relieve himself of his burdens- I'm still willing to listen. If there's anything else you want to talk about. Otherwise, I still have an excess of glow sticks, if you would like some of those.

[Wren I]

B&B employees, Claire J, public

[Locked to B&B employees]

Please welcome Claire.

[Claire J]

Hey. Welcome. Atticus told me you'd be joining us when your schedule allows?


At the risk of sounding like an old man, is there not anyone who would prefer apple bobbing to getting drunk on a stranger's dime?

Oct. 1st, 2018



[Patrick G.]

Just in time for Halloween.

[Adrian M.]



Who's living at the B&B these days? I'll be heavily drinking in the parlor if you'd like to join me.

[As 'Rån']

Okay, so prison? Totally fucking sucks. What a complete buzzkill. Here's a tip, avoid it at all costs. They wouldn't even given me fucking tampons. Outrageous, am I right? That bullshit was worse than seventh-grade sex ed on the embarrassment scale. How much pop culture have I missed? Is Miley still scandalous??

Public, Daniel W


What do we all think of anonymity? Old friend, dearly beloved helper, a little social lubrication to make the world far easier to piss off and leave fuming, confess secrets and solicit help? I knew someone who liked letters that didn't belong to people anymore, old ones, crumbling to bits in shops, anonymous because the names had been left off. I didn't get it.

I've always preferred saying things openly. Such as Repose, if you could kindly fuck off with the singing the greatest hits of the Manic Street Preachers at two thirty in the morning from the side of the lake, I would be absolutely chuffed.

[Daniel W]

Writing seems right out of your book, Lord E. Did you?

[ETA: added, Janus A]

Hello, darling. Dreamed anything lately?

News: Repose

[Post Fourth of July, there's a new round of moving 4x6 photographs that find their way tucked into windows. There are the kitschy ones: an American flag snapping in the wind, fireworks exploding in the night sky, some smiling kids with sparklers, and then there's someone doing something awesome with sparklers in a tunnel, and next to the lake. Finally, there's something cute. They're from the same anonymous source, but this set lacks any indication of where to find the photographer.]

What do you think is the most bizarre contrast in classes taken at the community centre at one time?

Line Dancing and Slam Poetry? Conversational Russian and Intro to Magic? Robotics and Pickleball (it's a real thing)?

I'm up to bat with Muay Thai and Alder Tree Watercolours, personally.

[Public: anon]

There are wolves in the woods, at least someone has anonymously confessed to being a demon of some kind. What, if we were making a list of weird shit you find in Repose, would make the list?

Jun. 22nd, 2018



[As Rae B]

I'm curious to know where the poetry thing started. And what the weirdest use of the forum has been so far. Don't give me prosaic and dull, please.

News: Repose

[Much like previous photos these ones turn up all over town. The same message is on the back as the last ones, but the content is different.

At first, it's only one picture of the ghostly couples holding hands briefly as they walk down Main Street before they vanish seemingly into the sun. The second one, appearing on day two, is two lovers saying good-bye at the train station. Each day it's a new couple, one couple sneaking kisses between the stacks and in the rows of the movie theatre, another one of an elderly couple holding hands and sitting on their rocking chairs, another of a ghostly girl in a prom dress throwing her arms around another ghostly girl and kissing her in the parking lot of the school. Each day, a new picture is taken of a new couple and the pictures make their way around town, but the photographer's identity remains unknown.]

Fill in the blank.

'I know when it's spring because [BLANK]'

I know when it's spring when a teenager who dreams of playing football for the state takes out the whole of a plate glass window. Darlings, tell me of appealing, spring-related prospects.
