spooky spiral serval Today at 1:59 AM

the admiral Today at 2:00 AM
or you could use the proper channel😠

gay for Beholding Today at 2:00 AM
Ah thank u for reminding me

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:00 AM
def move to the proper channel, but it's always good just in general to know how to do the thing
anyway though. gertrude with a machete.
lov her

the admiral Today at 2:01 AM
agreed

@CatArchivist just arrived. Seems OP - please nerf. Today at 2:01 AM

CatArchivist Today at 2:01 AM
Hello everyone.

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:01 AM
*loud waving*

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:01 AM
welcome to our little tma server
we're small but we're HYPE

Loonyblue Today at 2:01 AM
Hi!

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:01 AM
That's a very round cat, I love.

CatArchivist Today at 2:01 AM
Very new to this discord thing. Still not very good at navigating it.

the admiral Today at 2:02 AM
its pretty easy to learn, no worries
you'll pick it up as you go

CatArchivist Today at 2:02 AM
Thank you, his name is the Admiral. Are you
Are you... married to Elias Bouchard?

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:02 AM
also yes cat!!!!!!!!! love him

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:02 AM
it's not easy to learn, but we're nice, we'll help. And there's a help document........somewhere

the admiral Today at 2:02 AM
lmao you named your cat after the admiral? mood

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:02 AM
Elias is my husband, I love him, he should die in a fire.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:02 AM
if I had a cat I'd name them after the admiral

CatArchivist Today at 2:02 AM
Is that why that's your name? I am confused.

the Void that watches Today at 2:03 AM
oh FRESH MEAT!

CatArchivist Today at 2:03 AM
????

the admiral Today at 2:03 AM
lol yeah; I go by Kat and i wanted my nickname to be a pun but Kat/cat was all i could think of
and since the admiral is the only cat in the show, it made sense
tis my legacy

the Void that watches Today at 2:04 AM
welcome to the server! how'd you find us?

CatArchivist Today at 2:04 AM
Someone sent me a link.

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:04 AM
There's also Gertrude's cat. Unless you go by nsfw ██████████████████[1]

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:04 AM
so are you all caught up or? I'll warn you we're not the best with keeping spoilers where the spoilers go
though we'll try

the admiral Today at 2:05 AM
also we dont know the name of gertrude's cat
[☝️1]

CatArchivist Today at 2:05 AM
I didn't know there was a show with a cat named the Admiral, I'll have to ask Georgie about it. Having trouble keeping up with the conversation on my phone, haha.

the admiral Today at 2:05 AM
so i couldnt really make a good pun with that lol

CatArchivist Today at 2:05 AM
Why is the server called what it is?

the admiral Today at 2:06 AM
cuz jon deserves support

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:06 AM
Oh no, the Admiral's Georgie's cat in TMA. He's a very good cat--Jonny Sims and/or Alex Newell have cats, it's the ONLY way I know of that they could write a cat so accurately.
"And there's your butt, thank you."
[😅4]

Loonyblue Today at 2:06 AM
I bet Gertrude’s cat was called something really soppy like Schnookums or something(edited)

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:06 AM
iirc the admiral is based on jonny's cats
he's got....two of them? I think

the admiral Today at 2:06 AM
lol
i want a cat so badly
stupid allergies

Loonyblue Today at 2:07 AM
The closest I have to a pet cat is the stray in my backyard
Queen of Social Distancing, she is

the Void that watches Today at 2:07 AM
i have two cats two dogs two fish and 14 chickens
[👍🏼1]
used to have more chickens but they kept escaping

Loonyblue Today at 2:08 AM
They were trying to enact Chicken Run

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:09 AM
I still want a chicken. Someday. When I can properly raise myself.

CatArchivist Today at 2:10 AM
Sorry sorry, I'm still having trouble keeping up. I have... many questions.

the Void that watches Today at 2:10 AM
valid

the admiral Today at 2:10 AM
ah sorry
we move a little fast lol
what are your questions
?

CatArchivist Today at 2:10 AM
You all type very quickly. I feel old.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:10 AM
you said you were on mobile right?

the admiral Today at 2:11 AM
ive lived pretty much my whole life on the internet so im good with typing lol
am young'un

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:11 AM
I can type fast on mobile but I'm on mobile like 24/7 so I'm used to it

CatArchivist Today at 2:11 AM
Yes, I don't have access to my computer right now.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:11 AM
ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh that's the worst

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:11 AM
I don't like mobile, so i'm faster on my laptop.
Oh no, not having your computer is The Worst. I would cry.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:11 AM
hugs
best of luck getting it fixed/replaced/whatever you need
RIGHT OKAY SO you had questions right??

the admiral Today at 2:12 AM
YEAH
sorry we get distracted easily lmao

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:12 AM
let's all sit down and shut up so cat can ask their questions
wait until they're done

the Void that watches Today at 2:13 AM
(sits)

CatArchivist Today at 2:14 AM
Yes, thank you, give me a moment. I'd like to introduce myself first because I think that will explain part of my... confusion.
[👍3]

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:14 AM
If you're a real archivist, I will die laughing. XDD

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:14 AM
mood but sit down

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:15 AM
*sits. but only because I was going to anyway, you're not my real parent!*

CatArchivist Today at 2:16 AM
My name is Jonathan Sims. How do you all know about my friend's cat and my place of work? Or, well, previous place of work. Is it because one of you is (allegedly) married to my boss?
I know none of you and I don't understand what's going on.

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:17 AM
Oh no, this is so unfortunate, man. There's three of them now! XDD

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:17 AM
lolol and here I thought you were serious
did you think this was a rp server?
wait who are the other two

CatArchivist Today at 2:17 AM
... rp server? What is rp.

the admiral Today at 2:17 AM
roleplay
pretending to be characters from shows and shit

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:18 AM
Jon Sims, the Archivist; Jonny Sims, the unwise writer. XDD(edited)

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:18 AM
oh lol duh
(I mean rping is fine here if you want just like....you're not expected to do it all the time? and maybe don't be so strict about not breaking character)

CatArchivist Today at 2:19 AM
I am so completely lost.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:19 AM
what's the problem

CatArchivist Today at 2:20 AM
I just have no idea what any of you are talking about. Is this some sort of convoluted joke? Why would there be more than one of me?
I was confused enough to find a server with my name in it.
[😂2]

the Void that watches Today at 2:20 AM
i mean neither jon nor simms are uncommon names
[☝️1]

the admiral Today at 2:21 AM
the odds are low tho
do you know what the magnus archives is?

CatArchivist Today at 2:21 AM
I worked in the Archives at the Magnus Institute, so I suppose I do.

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:21 AM
Well, I know Jon's not an uncommon name, but I've never met anybody named Simms...

the admiral Today at 2:22 AM
......i cant decide if youre a REALLY dedicated RPer or if somewhere there legit is a magnus institute that does something totally normal

CatArchivist Today at 2:23 AM
I wouldn't call the Institute... normal...

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:23 AM
Oh god, it's Homestuck all over again. If you're gonna boycott Betty Crocker, do it for legit reasons. Like captialism being a bitch.

the admiral Today at 2:23 AM
ANYWAYS this server is for the horror podcast The Magnus Archives so if you dont follow the show it'll be very confusing lol

the Void that watches Today at 2:24 AM
i mean paranormal research centers are a real thing but i don't think any of them are as big as TMI is in TMA

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:24 AM
It's mostly a research facility/library, though?

the Void that watches Today at 2:24 AM
thats already bigger than the three i can think of

the admiral Today at 2:25 AM
its cuz jonah slept his way into unlimited funding

the Void that watches Today at 2:25 AM
facts

CatArchivist Today at 2:26 AM
Alright, well, can you tell me about this podcast? Since that's what this server is apparently for.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:27 AM
man is scared by spoopy things, takes a spoopy job, spoopy job makes him a spoopy man
spoopy man gets traumatized but also real fuckin gay

the admiral Today at 2:27 AM
basically its about the magnus institute, a place where people go to tell their spooky stories
but some of them are actually legit supernatural encounters
and the show focuses on those legit ones

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:27 AM
It's a horror podcast. The basic premise is the main character is reading statements from people who've encountered spooky things. Then it develops more, and it's really tightly-plotted, I love it.

the admiral Today at 2:27 AM
the cool part of the podcast is that it's implied that a ton more statements are being taken and recorded, but they record digitally, and the actually spooky ones wont record digitally and they have to go on an old fashioned tape recorder
and all the stuff we as the audience hear is the stuff that went on the tape recorder

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:28 AM
there's all sorts of fun spoops like bone man and fuckhands mcmike and fire lesbian

the admiral Today at 2:28 AM
so we only hear the legit stories
FIRE LESBIAN
i love her

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:28 AM
fire lesbian!!!!!!!!
also fire bi but she's dead

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:28 AM
And then the tape recorders start appearing on their own.

CatArchivist Today at 2:29 AM
That is uncomfortably similar to what I did as Head Archivist. The real statements have to go on tape.

the admiral Today at 2:29 AM
THE TAPE RECORDERS ARE THE PETS OF THE INSTITUTE

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:29 AM
I want martin to name them
I want martin to name them

CatArchivist Today at 2:29 AM
M
Martin

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:29 AM
Martin's the love interest.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:29 AM
yeah martin's the archivist's gay

CatArchivist Today at 2:30 AM
Excuse me???

Loonyblue Today at 2:30 AM
More like biromantic ace, really 😏

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:30 AM
martin is the gay of the archivist
is what I meant
not that the archivist himself is gay

the admiral Today at 2:30 AM
we dont know if martin is gay or bi
he def aint straight tho lmao

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:31 AM
lolnope

CatArchivist Today at 2:31 AM
I am deeply uncomfortable, that's incredibly personal information.

the admiral Today at 2:31 AM
ALSO
JONNY AND ALEX ARE COWARDS FOR NOT GIVING US AN ONSCREEN KISS

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:31 AM
"martin run away with me! martin let's remove our eyes it'll be real fucking romantic"
OKAY NO THEY'RE IN THE RIGHT
KISSING SOUNDS REAL WEIRD IN AUDIO FORMAT

the Void that watches Today at 2:31 AM
audio kisses sound so bad

the admiral Today at 2:31 AM
hnnnnnnnnnnnn
theres that tumblr post that goes around tho of an audio clip that sounds like a kiss from an earlier season tho

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:32 AM
I like the sound of audio kisses...
They're valid, but want
I do like that audio clip.😏

the admiral Today at 2:32 AM
just one lil smooch

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:33 AM
that's what fandom is for
wait @CatArchivist are you legit uncomfortable or

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:33 AM
Yeah, we can stop...

the admiral Today at 2:33 AM
ye, not everyone is comfy with kissing convos and shit
sorry if we made you uncomfortable 😬

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:34 AM
we can always go back to mx bouchard’s murder husband

CatArchivist Today at 2:35 AM
I am just having some trouble understanding the things being said, because it all sounds very similar to very personal things that I don't understand how people could know. You all seem to be talking about characters, but the similarities are extreme.

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:35 AM
I love that whenever people at me, it's always pictures of him. ❤️

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:36 AM
hm
solution: let's talk about stuff that couldn't possibly be personal
like brutal pipe murder

the admiral Today at 2:36 AM
like the murder husband
AYYYYYYYYY SAME HAT

CatArchivist Today at 2:36 AM
Um.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:37 AM
one of the best lines in the show and you can fight me

CatArchivist Today at 2:37 AM
What do you all know about that?

the admiral Today at 2:37 AM
nononono, the best lines on the show are
"Whats that?"
"thats a leitner"
"and the blood?"
"thats leitner too"
JUST THE WAY HE SAYS IT

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:37 AM
peter fucking lukas everyone
the fandom always forgets that he's funny
[☝️2]
and not just elias's sugar daddy

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:37 AM
Do you mind spoilers, CA?

CatArchivist Today at 2:38 AM
... I suppose I'm fine with them. I'd like to keep talking about this.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:39 AM
great bc there's always so much to say

the admiral Today at 2:39 AM
aight
elias is 100% a murder hobo tho
hes killed at least two people directly

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:39 AM
It's a S2 spoiler, but if you're at Georgie, you probably know: █████████[2].

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:39 AM
ok but he's not a hobo??

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:39 AM
2?

the admiral Today at 2:40 AM
gertrude and leitner

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:40 AM
Riiight
I keep forgetting Gertrude because reasons.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:40 AM
how dare you forget gertrude
he shot her once but it wasn't enough and he cried like a baby and she went after him cackling with a machete and then he shot her more

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:41 AM
That is NOT canon.

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:41 AM
it is!!!!! they said so
the one (1) exception to death of the author

C atArchivist Today at 2:43 AM
Could you repeat that about gertrude?

the admiral Today at 2:43 AM
oh shoot sorry spoiler
but yeah, elias shot gertrude
she was trying to stop him from starting the apocalypse so he shot her

CatArchivist Today at 2:44 AM
What apocalypse?

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:45 AM
Nobody call it the Watcher's Crown, or Purr will getcho ass

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:45 AM
DAMN STRAIGHT I WILL

the admiral Today at 2:45 AM
each of the fear entities has a little ritual that they try to do to bring their entity into the world but they all fail

CatArchivist Today at 2:45 AM
Watcher's Crown?

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:45 AM
Shouldn't we be in #spoilers?

Loonyblue Today at 2:45 AM
The Watcher’s Crown happened in the 19th century, people!

the admiral Today at 2:45 AM
cuz the entities are connected to each other so deeply that you cant just bring one, you gotta bring all of them
oh shit yeah
is season 4 still considered spoilers tho?
since its been out for so long

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:46 AM
CA hasn't heard it yet!
.......then again, all of us have, so...

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:46 AM
@CatArchivist do you care?

the admiral Today at 2:46 AM
and im lazy and dont wanna switch channels lol

CatArchivist Today at 2:47 AM
Go ahead.

the admiral Today at 2:48 AM
back on point tho; gertrude figured out that the rituals were all bound to fail and that elias was gonna plan one that would work so she tried to burn down the archives
and elias shot her a bunch
cuz hes a lil bitch

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:49 AM
Well, she wanted to burn the archives as a distraction
So she could go kill Jonah.

Loonyblue Today at 2:49 AM
And didn’t care how many people it killed

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:50 AM
I mean if she killed jonah they'd die anyway so

the admiral Today at 2:49 AM
ye
the eye bastard himself

C atArchivist Today at 2:50 AM
Who is Jonah?

Loonyblue Today at 2:50 AM
Jonah Magnus

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:50 AM
jonah magnus he founded the institute
and has been bodyhopping ever since

CatArchivist Today at 2:50 AM
How is he relevant?

Loonyblue Today at 2:50 AM
Elias is the latest poor bastard whose body he body snatched

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:52 AM
yeah so OG elias bouchard = sad weed man, jonah magnus = evil regency bastard who we all love

CatArchivist Today at 2:53 AM
So what you're all saying is that the current head of the Magnus Institute is Jonah Magnus, who somehow has been ‘body hopping’ to stay alive for over 200 years?

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:53 AM
yeah and he's fuckin gay
it's the eyes.
the eyes are gay the eyes are the body hop
oh hang on let me track down that one fanart

Loonyblue Today at 2:54 AM
He just copied Rayner, really

CatArchivist Today at 2:54 AM
Even as this becomes more and more ridiculous and horrible I find this to be... surprisingly believable.

Loonyblue Today at 2:55 AM
Only it’s “stick my eyes in this poor bastard’s head” instead of just blinding them

spooky spiral serval Today at 2:55 AM

          Good thing TMA is audio only, otherwise the giant painting of Jonah in Elias’ office
          would’ve immediately given the plot away Inspired by the best trope

          Elias Bouchard, a smirkingwhite man with blond hair and bright blue eyes, is sitting at his desk with his fingers steepled. Behind him is a portrait of Jonah Magnus, a smirking white man with brown hair and the exact same blue eyes, sitting at his desk with his fingers steepled.
[😂1]

cracks me up every time

Mx. Bouchard Today at 2:55 AM
There he goes. The bastard. My husband. And not even a cute version of him.

Rev👁rie Today at 3:06 AM
Do the Fears count as characters?

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:06 AM
Only sort of? Not really.

CatArchivist Today at 3:07 AM
The Fears. Let's talk about those. I know about those.

the Void that watches Today at 3:07 AM
can you name all of them tho
with out checking the wiki

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:07 AM
You've gotten past most of the worst Corruption grossness.

the admiral Today at 3:07 AM
not without forgetting some lol
ACTUALLY I WANNA TRY

Rev👁rie Today at 3:08 AM
I can!

CatArchivist Today at 3:08 AM
I think I can, yes.

the Void that watches Today at 3:08 AM
i would be impressed if anycould

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:08 AM

Rev👁rie Today at 3:10 AM
We can share!

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:10 AM
oh I forgot the dark
yeah the shady bois

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:11 AM
I always forget dark and flesh. Do Not Enjoy.

CatArchivist Today at 3:11 AM
Hah. I suppose there are. More than I thought.

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:11 AM
Also "The Cult of the Lightless Flame" and whatever desolation were sound so danged familiar.

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:11 AM
I remember flesh because of jared
the lightless flame is desolation!!
the dark cult is the uhhhh the church of the sacred host?

Rev👁rie Today at 3:12 AM
People's Church of the Divine Host, I think

CatArchivist Today at 3:12 AM
church of the divine host.

(People who cannot help but volunteer information unite)

CatArchivist Today at 3:12 AM
I am slow. And things are moving...... quickly. And in directions I am having trouble processing.

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:13 AM
Those names are so similar, I keep forgetting which is which. *loud gesturing!*

Rev👁rie Today at 3:14 AM
The Dark are the ones who try to be an actual church, the Desolation cultists watched too many horror movies and went "This is definitely what a cult looks like"
[☝️3]

Elegy Today at 3:14 AM
to be fair, several of them tried to be a church that one time with the priest, but like... all at once, and badly

CatArchivist Today at 3:14 AM
Someone said something about the Fears having rituals? What about the Stranger?

Loonyblue Today at 3:14 AM
That’s the Unknowing
And it’s coming up in the end of S3

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:14 AM
Unknowing. It's not gonna work, but Tim.

CatArchivist Today at 3:14 AM
Wh

Loonyblue Today at 3:15 AM
Look, Tim got what he wanted
He avenged his brother

CatArchivist Today at 3:15 AM
What happens to tim

the admiral Today at 3:15 AM
he blows up

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:15 AM
And he definitely killed Nikola.
[☝️2]

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:15 AM
he takes the whole circus with him!!!!! gets revenge

CatArchivist Today at 3:15 AM
He WHAT

the admiral Today at 3:15 AM
too much plastic explosive

Loonyblue Today at 3:15 AM
Even if he knew that the Unknowing wouldn’t have worked, he’d have still done it

Rev👁rie Today at 3:15 AM
Okay but consider: AU where Tim doesn't sacrifice himself on the altar of revenge and has to figure out how to live with that
Also a satisfying narrative!
[☝️3]

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:15 AM
it's how he wanted to go. doesn't mean anyone else is happy about it lol
rev I would kill for that

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:15 AM
I don't know if he could live with it...

the admiral Today at 3:16 AM
and of course, jon technically dies as well
but spooky dooky shit

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:16 AM
Poor coma boy

Loonyblue Today at 3:16 AM
He might if he knew that he took out Nikola and the rest of the Circus

CatArchivist Today at 3:16 AM
I also would like for tim to not di
WHAT

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:16 AM

jon dies but his beholding powers keep him in a weird ass state where his body is dead but his brain still has activity

I read a great fic where martin litcherally woke jon up from the coma with a kiss and it was GREAT

and then oliver visits him and is like "bruh just give in u a monster now"
and he goes "aight" and wakes up as a spooky dooky beholding avatar

Tim could have been okay if he hadn't 1. Spent months thinking that Jon had straight up murdered someone and then not been emotionally able to reexamine being angry at him when it turned out he hadn't , and 2. Been living with the unacknowledged terror after finding out about Sasha that someone else had been replaced and he just didn't know.

he starts recording statements but some of them don't record right, so he has to use tapes

(Audio stuff can be draining, I'm still surprised that I'm actually listening to the episodes instead of just reading the transcripts)(edited)

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:22 AM
his assistants are Martin Tim and Sasha
so he does that for a while, and then one of his assistants Martin gets trapped inside his house for idk like a month
by a worm woman named jane prentiss

Rev👁rie Today at 3:22 AM
Three weeks, I think

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:22 AM
close enough
but then martin gets out! yay
and then martin lives in the archives for a bit and it's real fuckin gay. put some pants on martin
and sasha meets fuckhands mcmike!
fuckhands mcmike is a person and also a door
we are all love him
he's real stabby
so he helps her out

I, personally, am indifferent to the Distortion. Helen's okay, though.

Helen CANNOT Be trusted

Helen gets out ok??

Helen is differently awesome, but honestly I like Michael a bit better? He was confused, but he really did seem to be anti-Apocalypse.
Depends on how you define "Okay"

Loonyblue Today at 3:24 AM
I like her, but she’s not to be trusted

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:24 AM

so in the worm attack jon gets holes. tim gets holes. martin is real smart with a fire extinguisher and a corkscrew. sasha gets killed and replaced by a stranger monster :( sorry sasha

season two jon is a paranoid fucker. to be fair he's very justified because of all the trauma and also not!sasha
okay pause
catarchivist what's your question

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:27 AM
not!Sasha really is out to get him.
[☝️3]

Elegy Today at 3:27 AM
many people are trying to kill him

Rev👁rie Today at 3:27 AM
The Eye encouraging paranoia + being able to tell that there's something wrong but deliberately being pointed away from Not!Sasha, so it spills over to everyone else.

spooky spiral serval Today at 3:34 AM
jon is really paranoid that one of his coworkers murdered gertrude and maybe wants to murder him. he explores the tunnels under the institute. he learns more things in the weird statement shit. helen gets ate by fuckhands mcmike. we start to get more stranger foreshadowing. supplemental: jon breaks into gertrude's flat. jack is real fucking gay for agnes but that happened a while back so but it's still worth mentioning you know? and then jon figures out about not!sasha and goes after the table with an axe! it's remarkably easy to get an axe in central london. (shit yeah okay so not!sasha is connected to a spoopy table.) but then now instead of being dead not!sasha is free and goes after jon. jon runs through the tunnels and then leitner saves him by trapping not!sasha in the walls using a spoopy book. then leitner starts to tell jon what the hap is fuckening but unfortunately jon is really overwhelmed and has to take a break. elias comes in and Brutal Pipe Murderizes leitner, and frames jon for it.
melanie joins in s3

the admiral Today at 3:34 AM
aight so elias murders leitner and frames jon (which you already know i think) he goes to stay with georgie, elias keeps sending him statements to monch on, georgie gets mad at him and eventually breaks ties with him cuz she thinks hes letting himself stay in a bad situation and he can and should just walk away (which is valid of her but he physically cant) and elias eventually lets him come back to the institute and makes it clear he killed leitner, not jon, and tells jon to get over it and work on stopping the unknowing, the ritual for the stranger. He goes to america following a trail that gertrude left to try and figure out what her plan was, meets vampire dude and daughter of serial killer (trevor and julia). specifically, they kidnap him. and then anatomy student all grown up goes after them, but jon tells them not to kill it but incapacitate it to prove he knows what hes talking about, leading to some truly gross "regrowing" sounds. jon figures out they have a book with gerry's soul in it and asks to see it and ask gerry what the heck he and gertrude were doing. gerry asks him to burn the page because it hurts to exist, so he does (which pisses off julia and trevor). eventually the trail leads him back to london and a bunch of C4 jon figures out that tim's little brother was killed by the stranger, so he is. angerey. (more than usual) they go to stop the ritual and it goes wrong and they have to detonate the explosives in person instead of remotely. tim outright dies and jon sorta dies but goes into a weird ass coma that confuses the doctors cuz his heart isnt beating but his brain is working?? and eventually oliver (an avatar of the end) visits him and is like "youre in limbo rn cuz youre just enough of an avatar to cling onto life but not enough of an avatar to truly wake up. you gotta either let go and die a human or accept that youre kinda an eldritch monster now to wake up" and jon decides "k i dont wanna die" so he wakes up and is now super spooky dooky

(Most people do not care about dates, admittedly)
(Still probably worth noting that it's set a few years in the past though)

Mx. Bouchard Today at 3:46 AM
S4 is a lot of Martin withdrawing from the group because he's working with Peter Lukas. Jon discovers you can leave the institute by punching out your eyes from a recording of Gertrude talking to Eric Delano, Gerry Keay's dad. He asks Martin to do it with him, Martin says no. That's towards the middle/end of the season? Melanie takes the opportunity and books it. Oh shit, there was Melanie going to therapy, Georgie refusing to help Jon because she didn't want to get dragged down with him (smart decision for her, but very sad), Basira gets meaner because she talked herself out of the Unknowing, Daisy gets nicer because Jon dragged her out of the coffin, both ladies are deeply traumatized, Jon cuts the ghost bullet out of Melanie with Basira's blessing, it's a hellaciously bad idea that Melanie is grudgingly grateful for, but also deeply pissed about. This is before she goes into therapy and before Georgie refuses to help Jon. Basira is talking with Elias, who's leading her around by the nose a bit. Jon goes to Jared Boneturner, who is in Helen Distortion's halls and gets a bone taken out for an anchor, and a second for Jared's story. This is after Martin withdraws and before Jon finds out about the eye thing. There's a lot of Peter trying to convince Martin the Extinction is real and that Martin can save everyone. The season ends with Peter taking Martin to Jonah's original body to kill it and replace him, which Martin refuses, Elias shows up, having escaped jail to mock Peter for misjudging Martin, Peter takes Martin into the Lonely, Trevor and Julia attack the institute, Peter releases not!Sasha while taking Martin to Jonah, Daisy and Basira fight off Trevor and Julia while Jon goes to find Martin. He finds Elias and follows Martin and Peter into the Lonely, where he eats Peter's statement, explodes him, and pulls Martin out of the Lonely.

So. Elias (who is secretly Jonah Magnus) killed Leitner and Gertrude. My original plan of asking several questions at once flew out the window because I am having trouble focusing. I will probably come back with more questions tomorrow, but first, this. Why did he kill them.

the admiral Today at 4:23 AM
Indeed

spooky spiral serval Today at 4:23 AM
He killed Gertrude in, technically, self-defense. She was going to kill his original body, which would have permakilled him.(edited)

Elegy Today at 4:23 AM
For Eye Reasons

Rev👁rie Today at 4:23 AM
Leitner: Because Jonah/Elias didn't want him telling Jon too much and wrecking his plans.
Gertrude: Because she was trying to burn down the Institute and kill Jonah (and almost succeeded!)

Elegy Today at 4:24 AM
she was also going to blow up the whole institute to be fair

spooky spiral serval Today at 4:24 AM
gertrude can have lot a arson. as a treat

CatArchivist Today at 4:26 AM

spooky spiral serval Today at 4:26 AM
None of the rituals worked because you can’t pull only one fear through at a time. Jonah formulated a megaritual, in which he got his Archivist scarred by all the fears and then forced him to read a statement that summoned the entire eldritch fear family into the world.

i actually do like spiders, aesthetically, if they are Somewhere Else i do not want them near me, particularly. i do not Trust Them. the podcast has not improved this lol

CatArchivist Today at 4:36 AM
Objectively, I understand that spiders are an important part of the ecosystem. But I cannot remember that when I see one, especially inside. They should not be inside.

phobias are valid
spiders are friends in general but that does not mean that you have to be friends with them
assert your boundaries!

My rule is that if they're up above eye level, they can stay, but if they drop down where they're actually in my living space, they're fair game.

I’m good with spiders and bugs in general if there is only one (1) in my vicinity at a time and it remains in eyesight

CatArchivist Today at 4:38 AM
What if it's a big spider though

the admiral Today at 4:38 AM
If it’s a big spider I scream and call for my mom

Rev👁rie Today at 4:39 AM
Eeesh. Yeah, there's a maximum size of Good Bugs inside.

CatArchivist Today at 4:41 AM
I suppose there aren't many truly large spiders where I'm from, though, so there’s not even much of a point.
I wish I could deal with them better on my own. It's... inconvenient to have so much trouble over something other people consider so small, you know?

Elegy Today at 4:42 AM
i mean, mood. for mental health reasons for me but like... yeah. "why can't you just do the dishes" bc of the texture

CatArchivist Today at 4:46 AM
I think I'm going to go to bed; I'm having extreme difficulty focusing on much of anything. Thank you all for being so accommodating when I obviously don't know very much about what the server is about. I'll be happy to learn though, hah. It's... It's interesting.

Rev👁rie Today at 4:47 AM
