Joe Burrow has joked that he doesn't know why he bothers watching film anymore, as every defense he's played has rolled out some novel scheme in an effort to slow the LSU offense down. Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables, however, also seems aware of how other defenses have strayed from their usual schemes in an effort to defend LSU, and how ineffective they've been, noting "you're not going to trick them. Regardless of whether Clemson sticks to what's worked so far, or chooses to invent something new, their goal against LSU's offense should be simple: make LSU boring again. Previously associated with plodding offenses, LSU has exploded offensively this season, thanks largely to the sudden transformation of Joe Burrow, who can throw a pinpoint pass forty yards downfield just as easily as he can scramble for the first down. Clemson likely knows it won't be able to completely stop the Tigers of Baton Rouge, and will instead aim to make each touchdown as much of a slog as possible. How can they do that? Generate pressure with only four rushers, keep Burrow from his using legs to create damage, and god forbid, don't remotely emulate Oklahoma's strategy for defending the deep pass. 1. Win with four Obviously every defensive coordinator would choose to generate more pressure with fewer rushers if provided the choice. So why is winning with four rushers particularly important in this matchup, important enough to specifically call out? LSU leads the nation in the percentage of plays only utilizing five man protection. They do this for two reasons: Burrow suffers minimal drop-off when blitzed, and their standard offensive personnel are five deep in playmakers who can create matchup problems for the defense. Burrow's performance when blitzed can be best summarized by the following quote from PFF: When under pressure, Burrow has attempted 24 throws of 20-plus yards and completed 17, with just 10% of those being uncatchable and eight of the completions going for a touchdown. Of course, that stat includes all pressures, not just blitzes. But logically, if you've got a quarterback who isn't rattled by pressure, there is less value in bringing extra rushers to create pressure, and there is more risk that by doing so you create an opening in the defense. Now consider LSU's preference to rely on only their offensive line to keep Burrow upright. Although some have argued the unit may be slightly overrated, and the clips below will demonstrate examples of they've been beaten previously, they won the Joe Moore award for best offensive line for a reason. Offensive coordinators Steve Ensminger and Joe Brady's confidence in the offensive line means tight end Thad Moss and running Clyde Edwards-Helaire are usually allowed to forgo blocking responsibilities, and instead are placed in favorable matchups against linebackers and safeties. Add in LSU's trio of receivers, which are second only to Alabama's, and it becomes easy to see how LSU can come out in 11 personnel yet have a favorable matchup for all five playmakers, no matter the defensive scheme. With LSU's receiving talent and Burrow's anticipation + ball placement rendering pure 1-on-1 coverage insufficient, if a defense opts to use five or more defenders to get to Burrow at the expense of extra cover defenders, they put themselves at a numerical disadvantage. Burrow has demonstrated he will find and exploit the corresponding coverage gaps, whether they're underneath due to a nickel or linebacker blitzing, or over the top because the defense chose to trade a deep safety for an extra blitzer. On the surface, relying on only four rushers, rather than blitzing, seems like it would require a bit of philosophy change from Venables, whose defenses are renown for their ability to disrupt offenses through the blitz. And given his comments about not being able to trick LSU, maybe they'll stick to their historic blitz packages. However, while this year's defensive line doesn't compare to last year's historic unit, it's still loaded with talented pass rushers. Between former five stars Xavier Thomas and KJ Henry, freshman All-American Tyler Davis, and a slew of other blue chip defensive lineman, they have the workhorses required to generate pressure with only four. However, Clemson's best option for only rushing four may not involve four down lineman. In fact, Auburn's 3-1-7 defense may provide a repeatable blueprint on how to slow down LSU. Unlike for Auburn, which only began practicing that defense in the week ahead of their match up with LSU, Clemson increasingly relied on three man fronts throughout the season. As Max Olson of The Athletic noted, while Shaun Wade's ejection is a commonly cited turning point in the game against Ohio State, Clemson's shift to a three man front helps explain how the Buckeyes lost their first quarter effectiveness. Venables visited Iowa State during the offseason to study how to best leverage only using three down lineman, and has used that scheme often throughout the regular season. Relying on a three man line may open the door to for Venables to stick to what's worked in the past, only rush four, AND still use creative blitzes, with the fourth rusher coming from a variety of spots across the field. Despite having only three down lineman for most plays, Auburn successfully generated pressure throughout the game. This usually mean rushing the three down lineman, and having either a linebacker or safety blitz from a variety of spots, including the edge as well as up the middle. On these two plays, pressure is generated by having the sole linebacker (the 1 in the 3-1-7) blitz up the middle: Immediately following that second sack, Auburn brought their fourth man from the edge, getting pressure and forcing a checkdown for a short completion. Given the explosive nature of LSU's passing attack, forcing these kinds of small yardage plays is a major win for the defense: Fortunately for the Tigers of Clemson, they have the talent and schemes to potentially match Auburn's success in winning with only four rushers. To be clear, no one on the Clemson defensive line is as individually talented as Auburn's Derrick Brown, meaning we probably won't see anyone throwing LSU's offensive guards into Joe Burrow for a sack on Monday night, like we did in early November: But given their talent on the defensive line, their usage of three down lineman packages throughout the season (including effectively against Ohio State) and Venables ability to design exotic blitzes, we may see Clemson come out in something similar to Auburn's 3-1-7, and do so successfully. 2. Take away Joe Burrow's legs "Joe Burrow is like a more athletic Tom Brady. That was how Dabo Swinney chose to summarize the LSU QB, and it's a telling characterization. Burrow has had the most prolific passing season in SEC history, and if he has a historic national championship performance, he could end the season with the most prolific passing season in FBS history. But Dabo chose to highlight Burrow's athleticism for a reason. He knows that Burrow damages defenses with his legs, not just his arm. Burrow is no Lamar Jackson or Cam Newton - he presents a threat not because LSU can design an entire rushing attack around him, but rather, because a defense can call a perfect coverage, only to watch Burrow escape out of the pocket and scramble for the first down, or worse yet, escape the pressure and suddenly find a receiver breaking open thirty yards down field. Burrow's performance in the SEC Championship game may best demonstrate his ability to keep the chains moving beyond just his arm, as he continually punished Georgia for its lack of containment, at one point prompting CBS to display the following graphic: While that yardage may not seem decisive, watch the following plays to see how Burrow's leg constantly kept drives alive and chains moving: In fact, while Burrow has many plays which could be considered his "Heisman moment" this run versus Alabama is likely the specific play that won over any remaining doubters: While those examples show Burrow's ability to pick up rushing yardage, of particular focus for Clemson should be limiting instances where Burrow can uses both his legs and arm on the same play - Burrow may be the best college quarterback since Johnny Manziel at creating big passing plays by escaping the pocket and throwing on the run. As a textbook example of Burrow operating coolly in chaos, watch him see Georgia's Trevon Walker coming free inside, spin backwards to avoid him once, juke to avoid him a second time, and then outrun defensive lineman Jordan Davis to the edge, only to launch a downfield bomb to a wide open Justin Jefferson for a massive gain: Of course, Burrow's receivers need not be wide open in order for Burrow to make the defense pay when throwing on the run. Against Oklahoma, Sooners' defensive lineman Isaiah Thomas generated pressure from the right side, only for Burrow to escape the pocket into open ground and launch a pinpoint pass for a touchdown, again to Jefferson, who was much more tightly covered this time. These scramble drills-turn-massive gains will demoralize any defense. Burrow's athleticism gives him a favorable matchup versus most defensive lineman and many linebackers in the open field. The combination of his ability to continue scanning downfield on the run, and LSU's receivers' ability to recognize the situation and find open space, make the Tigers lethal when it should be the defense who are creating havoc. Clemson will have a couple of options to help prevent this. First, they can have their defensive ends focus foremost on containing the edge of the pocket. They can do this by emphasizing rushing straight downfield, as opposed to making a move or bull rushing inside. By doing this however, they're going to reduce their chances of getting to Burrow and give him time to pick the defense apart, particularly if they do choose to rely on only four rushers in most passing situations (which in this scenario would become two contain players, two rushers. Alternatively, they can keep their four defensive lineman focused on pressuring, not just containing Burrow, and rather than using a fifth player as a blitzer, use that player as a hybrid QB spy / short middle-of-the-field zone coverage defender. This player's initial responsibility would be to sit in middle and defend against crossing patterns and LSU's highly productive slants, but they would have the freedom drop the assignment to pursue Burrow the moment he begins to move out of the pocket. Critically for Clemson, this player would need the athleticism to prevent Burrow from beating them to the edge. While Venables will likely have numerous plans for how to best use star defender Isaiah Simmons (including covering Moss and/or Edwards-Helaire) Thomas seems to possess the best combination of instincts (to know when to sit back and when to break) and athleticism to keep Burrow's legs in check. While it may seem a waste to have their best defender playing a version of QB spy for a large part of the game, Burrow's defense-breaking ability to generate yardage via his legs would seem to justify that usage. If Venables determines Simmons is best used elsewhere, adding another safety (rather than a linebacker) to the field may be the next best move. 3. Take away the deep pass I'll apologize to Oklahoma and/or Alex Grinch fans, both for having to watch the Peach Bowl and the following statement: Alex Grinch absolutely botched his game plan versus LSU. It's no secret that Joe Burrow is a deadly downfield passer. It's no secret that LSU has an elite receiving corps, including this season's Biletnikoff winner, that can win 1-on-1 matchups. And it's no secret despite however well they may have recruited on that side of the ball, Oklahoma's defensive backs should not be relied upon to win 1-on-1 matchups versus talented receivers. So knowing all of that, how did Alex Grinch plan to stop LSU? Apparently by asking his defensive backs to cover LSU's receivers 1-on-1 downfield. If coaches should be judged by how they put their players in position to play their best, Grinch should receive a failing grade for this game (note: no coach is defined by one game, particularly one in his first year in the role. Watch the below clip, focusing on safety Brendan Radley-Hiles ( 44) who lines up on the left hash only ten yards off the line of scrimmage. At the snap, he immediately bails to play the deep middle. In doing so, rather than using a neutral backpedal (in part because he lined up on the hash, not the middle) he uses questionable technique to get back, turning his body and head away from the left side of the field. This renders him incapable of making a play on anything thrown to that side. Burrow immediately recognizes this, and knows he has a 1-on-1 match up deep (even if Radley-Hiles is nominally the deep safety who can provide assistance over the top) and he wisely trusts his man to win. To better demonstrate what I mean by the safety technically playing the middle, but only looking one way due to questionable technique, see the freeze frame below: Before jumping to blame Radley-Hiles for using questionable technique, know that it's almost guaranteed he was coached to do exactly this. How do I know this? Radley-Hiles was ejected in the second quarter, and his backup Pat Fields uses the exact same technique, and similarly gives up two long touchdowns as a result. In the first example, Fields ( 10, in the upper left, behind the ref, in the following clip) lines up to Burrow's left, approximately ten yards off the line of scrimmage (aka the same place as Radley-Hiles in the clip above. Just as Radley-Hiles did, he immediately bails, turns his head away from the left side of the field, and consequently takes himself out of play, and Burrow immediately targets his blindside. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times? Joe Burrow throws his sixth touchdown of the half. Again, Grinch asks his safety (Fields) to play the deep middle, but line up to the left and only ten yards off the line of scrimmage. Again, the safety scrambles to get to assigned spot, and to do so turns his head away from the left side of the field. Again, Burrow realizes that the "deep middle safety" can only make a play on passes to the right, and instead Burrow goes left, this time to a wide open Thad Moss. My guess is Grinch wanted to disguise his coverages, thus not lining his safeties deeper at the snap and relying on them to run to the spot post-snap. Either that, or he wanted his safeties to double dip, keeping them close for run support but also tasking them with deep coverage responsibilities. Either way, LSU wasn't surprised and consistently took advantage of the out-of-place defender. My guess is Venables saw the same thing, and will not make the same mistake. If Clemson wants to prevent the trademark Joe Burrow deep bomb, they'll need their safeties to not just play deep, but line up deep. Not abnormally deep, mind you. Just deeper than wherever the hell Grinch was asking his safeties to start. It's fairly standard when playing with a single safety high for that deep safety to line up twenty yards behind the line of scrimmage, in the middle of field. This reduces the amount of movement the deep safety has to make immediately post-snap and allows him to keep all sides of the field in front of him. As an example, compare the safety play on those plays to the following clip. Here, Ja'Marr Chase got a step on Georgia corner DJ Daniel, and Burrow threw it deep to take advantage. In contrast to how Grinch deployed his safeties, however, Georgia safety Richard LeCounte lined up deep (you can see him barely on the left edge of the screen at the beginning of the clip) and therefore was able to stay on top of the route and ultimately make a play on the ball, resulting in an incompletion. If Clemson does rely on only four rushers to generate pressure, that affords them the option to keep two deep safeties, further reducing the likelihood Burrow can find a corner exposed to a 1-on-1 matchup deep down the field. Regardless, keeping safety(s) deep will help remove the deep pass from LSU's offense, and hopefully force them into shorter passes in front of, not behind, defenders. Summary Ultimately, Clemson needs to make LSU boring again. They have the talent to generate pressure with only four rushers, whether with four down lineman or using more creative three man fronts. If they only rush four, they can then afford to keep a man playing the middle with all eyes on Joe Burrow should he try and scramble, and also maintain a true deep safety who can provide assistance when LSU inevitably goes downfield. Using this kind of strategy requires acknowledging that you're giving up plays underneath, but with LSU, that's better than the alternative. In fact, forgoing the blitz, having a designated QB spy, and keeping safeties deep is the exact recipe to open the door for the offense LSU has been known for the last two decades: physical, run-oriented, with an emphasis on taking whats open underneath. That was the boring LSU, and thats the version Clemson should aim to bring back from the dead. Of course, I say all of the above knowing full well that Venables may have the complete opposite approach in mind, and that fluke plays and injuries (speaking of national championships, RIP Colt McCoy) can render the best game plans meaningless, and the worst game plans meaningful. But if they use the above strategy, and as a result find themselves losing the time of possession battle and continually giving up five or six yard gains, they should consider that a win. Making LSU beat them with checkdown passes and Edwards-Helaire rushes is not the worst thing that could happen. To demonstrate why, consider this: if they can simply force LSU to start on their side of the field, giving up constant five and six yard plays would still require LSU to string together ten+ play drives in order to reach the endzone. Odds are, if LSU does have to settle for continuous short yardage gains, Clemson's experience and talent on defense will allow them to make critical havoc plays, whether it's a sack, pass breakups, or forced turnovers, and maybe, just maybe, slowdown Burrow and the Bayou Bengal offense enough to claim yet another national championship.

Beneath the concave cheekbones, the magical handguns with infinite bullet capacity, and the byzantine criminal underworld that stretches to every corner of the globe, hes just a monosyllabic middle-aged man who wants to be left the fuck alone. When the first movie of this increasingly ridiculous saga began, Mr. Wick was grieving his wifes death in peace—then some Russian mobsters made the mistake of killing his dog (her name was Daisy, and she was very cute. This aggression, unknowingly committed against a man so dangerous that he used to be known as “Baba Yaga, ” forced John back into the network of contract killers hed once left behind. And ever since the shadowy crime lords of the High Table sniffed blood, they havent lost the scent or minded their own business. At the end of “John Wick: Chapter 2, ” our laconic hero committed a big no-no by shooting a pest on the consecrated grounds of the Continental Hotel, but desperate times call for desperate measures, and every New Yorker knows what its like when the world gets a bit too close for comfort. Giddy, exhausting, and breathtakingly violent, “Hope Gap” begins a few seconds after the previous installment left off, with the excommunicated assassin trying to make the most of the hour-long headstart hes been given to hide before the 14 million bounty on his head is triggered and the entire criminal underworld comes after him. Of course, anyone whos seen the previous films in this unexpected franchise knows that its criminal underworld is more of an overworld, and that almost every featured extra? —? from street vendors and waiters to dog-walkers and homeless people? —? is a heat-packing hired gun who uses their role in the capitalist system as a disguise for their deeper allegiance to a veiled society that operates on an ancient market of codes and blood oaths. Now that Mr. Wick is square in the middle of all of those crosshairs, its become comically impossible for the deathless widower to find the solace he seeks. Hes a target, and it seems like the entire world has its finger on the trigger; he used to be anonymous, but now hes a celebrity. In its most enjoyably demented moments, “Parabellum” is nothing short of a non-stop metaphor for being famous. Less artful but more concussive than its immediate predecessor, this latest outing finds Mr. Wick being clocked by strangers every time he enters a room, stalked by his biggest fans, and so desperate for someone who will treat him like an actual human being that he travels all the way to the Sahara Desert to find them. Everyone in the world knows him by name, New York City is the only place on Earth he can hide in plain sight, and the perks of his job dont seem to compare with the harassment that comes with them. As Wick stumbles through the wet neon streets of Times Square—returning us to a surprisingly involved film world that flows like “The Raid” and looks like a hyper-saturated Instagram feed? —? its hard not to think of Reeves recent experience on a malfunctioning airplane, and how even that death-defying ordeal was turned into a viral moment (to the actors mild chagrin. Reeves once said that Wick was 40% him, but that number seems to have crept up a bit this time around. No movie has ever expressed the fight for anonymity with such viscerally literal force. True to the serialized nature of its title, “Hope Gap” starts in media res and ends on a cliffhanger. For an 131-minute film that devotes roughly 110 minutes of its runtime to people shooting each other in the head at close range, it would be almost impossible to follow for someone who isnt up to speed. Still, the gist of the plot is pretty simple: John Wick kills a lot of people. Like, a lot of people. By the end of “Parabellum, ” hes basically the leading cause of death in henchmen between the ages of 25 and 50. More of a one-man massacre than ever before (but just raggedy enough to keep things “real”) Mr. Wick fights in a punishingly brutal style that builds on what director Chad Stahelski invented for the character in the previous films. This is a character who appears to know every single language under the sun, but violence is the most expressive part of his vocabulary (Reeves speaks maybe 100 words in the entire movie. Chinese wushu, Japanese judo, Southeast Asian silat, American Glock… Wick is fluent in them all. But while Stahelski and his team have obviously put a great deal of thought into every frame of fisticuffs, “Parabellum” is so relentless that it often devolves into a numbing flurry of shoulder flips and headshots. If “Chapter 2” bordered on high art for how cleverly it weaved tactical shootouts into public locations (and made every fight operate like an organic bit of world-building) “Chapter 3” is more out in the open. A sneaky little skirmish in Grand Central Station doesnt live up to Stahelskis creative potential, even if its amazing they pulled off the scene at all. Elsewhere, a motorcycle chase along an empty Manhattan bridge is too rushed and blurry to deliver the “Fury Road” ferocity it teases, and the climactic brawl? —? which makes great use of some familiar faces, and hinges on a funny dynamic of mutual respect—is overwhelmed by a set that looks like a high-end watch commercial, and feels like a watered-down retread of the house of mirrors sequence from the end of the previous movie. Driven by a profound respect for the expressive power of beating someone to death, and empowered by their 54-year-old stars remarkable skill and commitment, Stahelski and the other poets of percussive carnage that work at his 87Eleven Productions are still (a severed) head and shoulders above the rest of Hollywoods stunt community. But they can do more with this character, even if it means slowing things down and widening them out. To that end, its telling that the most exciting brawl in “Parabellum” (with the possible exception of a knife fight in a Chinatown antiques store) maintains a more expansive vision, as Mr. Wick fights alongside Halle Berry and some four-legged sidekicks. Traveling to Casablanca for reasons that are never adequately explained, Mr. Wick meets up with an assassin named Sofia who owns a pair of well-trained Malinois dogs; like every other supporting character in this movie, theres mixed blood between them, and she owes him something for some reason. There are coins and seals and lots of jibber jabber about High Table manners and then “Game of Thrones” star Jerome Flynn shows up as a Bronn-like business type whos a bit too greedy for his own good (its hard to tell what accent Flynn is doing here, but hes most definitely doing it. When the bullets fly, Sofias very Hope Gap lend a valuable assist, and Stahelski has to open things up in order to frame the dogs as they chew on fresh corpses. The sequence is very “John Wick” and horribly terrific in a hand-over-your-mouth kind of way; it does more than any of the tossed-off business with the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburn) or the Continental Hotel owner (Ian McShane) to whet our appetites for another adventure. Anjelica Huston is also somewhat wasted as the matriarch of a Harlem ballet academy with ties to Wicks past, but her scenes are so immaculately shot that youre willing to let it slide. In a film that plays fast and loose with NYC geography, all is forgiven by turning 175th streets United Palace into the “Tarkovsky Theater, ” where people are trained to be killers in between performances of “Swan Lake. ” The films world-building works best in small doses. A meeting in the middle of the desert is a total dead end, whereas all sorts of fun details can be inferred from Stahelskis frequent cutaways to the High Table nerve center, where dozens of tattooed and lip-glossed workers monitor Wicks bounty with an old-fashioned switchboard (imagine a SuicideGirls reboot of “Mad Men” and youll have the right idea. Non-binary “Billions” star Asia Kate Dillon plays a stiff and slinky High Table adjudicator whos covered in Thierry Mugler coture; part referee and part femme fatale, their performance speaks to an underworld thats sustained by a mutual respect for all people so long as they dont shoot the wrong target. While this franchise is starting to feel a bit long in the tooth, such details suggest that screenwriter Derek Kolstad (here sharing credit with three other scribes) can still mine this world for plenty of new life, so long as future installments find a way to deepen the John Wick mythos instead of just stretching it out. With the significant exception of “Mission: Impossible, ” this is easily the best action franchise Hollywood has going these days, and it would be great for it to keep going with renewed focus. The fact that Keanu Reeves is nearing 60 wont matter to his fans. For one thing, the man is seemingly ageless. For another, retirement no longer seems like a realistic option for a guy who still gets recognized everywhere he goes. It doesnt matter if youre a Hollywood star or a 14 million bounty—fame can be a difficult thing to shake. Its a work-or-die world, and being forgotten is neither on the table nor under it.

We came in peace. WIKI. Normally, Governor Arlak, would be angered to have his meal interrupted. Today though, the Dorlak watched the message in amusement realizing this news was good. An unknown race appeared on the screen his aide had brought, it was asking in Babel for a diplomatic meeting. Babel was the universal language established over 40, 000 years ago when the Demons of Babel ruled over the universe. The alien on the screen was a little taller, but otherwise not very notable. Bipedal with two manipulating appendages and a face that was only notable for the intensity of its slightly unsettling eyes. “They must be new to space, asking for a meeting with us. I am almost flattered since most races have the sense to flee the Demons of Babel, ” The Governor laughed to his aide and guards. “Invite them down and bring the emissaries from the food races so they can watch. Let's remind them who we are. ” As Governor Arlak said this, his lips pulled back revealing his many rows of sharp teeth. He couldnt help but admire his image. His obsidian claws contrasted with the immaculate white of his teeth, both notable from the shiny red of his pelt. Among his species, he knew he was extremely attractive. But those same features are what made it so easy for everyone to believe the Dorlak were the infamous Demons of Babel from almost every races ancient lore. As he turned back towards his meal, he couldnt help but look forward to the next quarterly Intergalactic Games. The aroma of cooked Alerk, an avian species native to this planet already had him starting to salivate. I am sure glad we tell them we send the winners of each season to tour the galaxy and compete with others for their life. He briefly mused if they were truly the Demons of Babel as even they had legends of how the demons would take those who misbehaved away to be punished. It was only a fleeting thought before delicate flesh tore his thoughts away from that and back to his meal. Kotse looked at the summons in horror, the Demonic Governor was summoning emissaries from all of the slave races far too early for their entries into the quarterly intergalactic games. His questions had only left him with more. Looking again at the messenger, “Did he at least say why he wanted me there hours before the other diplomats? ” “Only that a host was needed for a new guest sir. ” the messenger replied. With that, the messenger gave him a sympathetic look before leaving. All Alerk on the planet feared and hated their Dorlak masters, but their military had been destroyed long ago. They had been enslaved for as long as any among them could remember, so they never hoped to actually fight their oppressors He resigned himself to whatever fate held. With a sigh, he went into the kitchen to let his par amare and hatchlings know about his summons. There was a strong chance he might not return, a fate many of his predecessors had met. ”. Above the planet, a new satellite was orbiting. It was a giant ring made of a dark metal that would flare up faintly as communications and intelligence were sent through it by the hundreds of drones that had disembarked from it upon reaching its century-long voyage. Those communications were sent via wormhole technology to a planet on the far side of the galaxy down the longest dead leg of its spiral arm. There they arrived at one of many manned stations, this one happens to be run by a Commander Thresher. As he watched the replay, he found much of what the drones were reporting disconcerting. Already it was clear this was a police state and the Dorlak were in charge. The other races they had encountered had told them the Dorlak was the legendary Demons of Babel, but this was humanity's first contact with them. After weighing his options carefully, he reported his findings to General Carver. He would navigate a diplomatic unit to the planet to evaluate first hand what he was finding. The diplomatic unit, Simon, was designed to appear and speak like a pre-adolescent child of about 9 years. Previous first contact encounters have taught them that alien races reacted best towards this form of humanity. Cmdr Thresher knew first hand how tenuous such contacts could be, at this was already looking bad. Humanity has been shocked to discover that Tamil of all our languages was the language of Babel. We knew it to be one of our oldest languages, but somehow humanity seemed to expect Sumerian to be the demon tongue when we learned of them. Regardless of the language, we spoke through translation software that easily handled the conversion as it is one of our oldest languages. Commander Thresher wasnt even worried when he was notified General Carver was coming down to watch this contact personally after reading the brief. Slavery was something humanity had outgrown but was one of many scars the race carried into the stars. To see it in a new contact was always disquieting, but depending upon how rationale the race could be, it was a challenge we could often overcome. As Commander Thresher prepared his diplomatic android for travel, he ensured the shuttle was properly set up and his neural net connection to Simon was strong. Kotse had been shocked to learn he would be charged with meeting a newly discovered race. As he stood in his official uniform in the brisk breeze of the morning, he could almost feel the black, predatory eyes of the Dorlak guards. Can I warn this race somehow? Save them enslavement by the Dorlak without risking Kalta and our young? His mind raced, but all hope was quashed by fear of the repercussions on his family. I know my life is forfeit in this role, but perhaps I can do something to help this new race avoid that our fate... He silently thought as he watched a contrail form in the clear sky from the approaching shuttle. He could feel his gut clench in worry and anticipation as he prepared to welcome another race to his form of hell. As the shuttle touched down, Kotse was shocked at the size and cleanliness of the shuttle. The shuttle looked far too small to have crossed the great gaps of space and bore none of the normally scarring from micrometeorites or other debris. As the shuttle lowered onto the landing pad and the door seemed to disappear, he was shocked at his first glimpse of the diplomat. It is such a small creature covered in soft skin, large round eyes, and with no natural weapons… How could such a species ever survive? “Greetings, my name is Simon. I am here to represent Humanity. It is my privilege to meet first with your race, though I had assumed I would meet the Dorlak first. ” The Diplomat began to Kotses surprise. Its Babel was almost perfect, like it was natural for it to speak the ancient language. Kotse took a deep breath and stepped forward, “Greetings Simon, I am Kotse of the Alerk. This planet is our birth world. I have been asked to help prepare you to meet our Governor. I must warn you, Governor Arlak is brutal, even for a Dolak. ” Kotse started, only to be surprised when the creatures skin pulled away from its teeth. Despite his initial shock, he was assured by Simon such a gesture was a smile, an expression of amusement, yet that smile never seemed to reach the humans eyes. Those ice-blue eyes were becoming more disconcerting the longer he looked into them. They seemed to take in everything like a prey animal watching for dangers, yet focus in like a predator hunting when it so desired. Am I underestimating this race? Could they be more dangerous than they appear? Kotse briefly hoped before again looking at the small stature and lack of any apparent weaponry. “Please, come with me and Ill escort you to the … greeting chamber. We must not keep the Governor waiting. ” Kotse said with a gesture towards the building. At this, the Human smiled, “So Kotse, since we will be waiting, please tell me about your people, ” Simon said as they walked towards the complex. Kotse paused midstep, surprised and mildly alarmed. Normally, any directed attention was cause for alarm but Kotse observed Simon and noted again its non-threatening nature. The human seemed innocently inquisitive, reminding him of his own clutch. Kotse spent much of their time together sharing many aspects of his culture and what remained of it after the Dorlak conquered them. “I find you have a varied and fascinating culture despite the challenges your people face. Where we come from we have smaller cultural units called families with a bonded partner and offspring. Does your kind share this as well? ”, asked Simon to a vigorous nod before continuing, “ Would it be impolite to ask about your family Kotse. Kotse was shocked at first but soon found himself enjoying the company of Simon. As he looked into Simons open calm face, he found himself sharing stories of his family and even ended up talking about some of their cultural events. The happy and defining moments of his life such as his upcoming hatchlings emergence date. Knowing their brief moment of privacy was about to end, time was coming up, Kotse decided this race worth warning. “Simon, please know this. The Governor will try to determine the location of your homeworld for a Dorlak invasion fleet. My assignment was to try and get this from you, but I will try to spare you their fate. ” At this, Simon seemed to smile again, there was genuine humor in his voice as he replied, “Our home is Earth, in the Orion Arm. I am transmitting you the coordinates if that helps. ” “. but, if the Dorlak get this your race. ” Kotse began, only to see the human smile increase. “Dont worry about us, I am here as an emissary as we wish for peace. But given what I have seen so far, I suspect the distances involved with getting to our world would be daunting. ” Simon replied with that grin, Kotse couldnt help but notice the sharp teeth mixed with the flat. “Dont underestimate the Demons, their kind once held the entire universe until they were driven from our worlds, ” Kotse replied, but Simons grin did not seem to fail. “Your worlds and people are beautiful, they are no place for demons, ” he replied. Kotse didnt get a chance to respond as the door opened and they were summoned to meet the Governor. Governor Arlak almost laughed as the Human emissary came in with the Alerk emissary in tow. He was confident that the Alerk would have finally failed enough to justify his addition to the meal plan. “Ah, so this is the Human representative, ” he growled in his loudest voice. This creature is helpless, all meat and bone. I think our ancestors must have created them for food. The Human responded by pulling the skin tight and upwards around its mouth, teeth not showing, though a slight impression of the block like structures could be seen. “Governor Arlak I presume? It is a pleasure to meet you, and the other races under your governance. Looking around there are many species here we have not yet met. We come in peace and look forward to many years of such. ” “Ha! ” Arlak barked. He was shocked at how smooth the Babel rolled off the creatures tongue, “Impudent race arent you, are all ‘humans as scrawny as you? ” At this, the Humans face seemed to move again, lips almost straight and eyes a dull grey turned towards it. “Actually no, I am representing an adolescent human. Adults tend to be larger, but my role as a diplomat is not to threaten. I wish to be clear we desire to live in peace. My name is Simon. ” Arlak almost doubled over in laughter, “Your race sent a child to bargain with the Demons of Babel. Am I to take you as a sacrifice? Where is your race from and why are we only not finding you? ” At this Simon smiled, “Your usher, Kotse, was very kind in keeping me company on our way here and has our homeworld coordinates per your command of him. They will do you little good though, we are far from there. And as for my role, it is that of a diplomat. Should I fail in that role, a diplomat far more convincing than I will take over negotiations. ” “Very well Human, “ Arlak responded deliberately refusing to call prey by name, “What do you purpose? ” “Humanity would like to start by requesting permission to open trade with your colony and requesting a place for an embassy. This would allow us to open dialog and learn of each others culture. We have heard much of the Demons of Babel and would like to know more before making any decisions of our own, ” Simon stated flatly. He had moved away from the Alrik and a little closer to the governor. They were in the open atrium of the Governors Plaza and the sun made Simons golden hair almost appear to glow. Arlak was shocked at the creatures bluntness as it laid out its proposals. Most species showed fear or aggression when faced with a Dorlak. This creature appeared to show neither, it almost appeared indifferent. For the first time in his life, Arlak felt a tinge of something unnerving, and the cause was from a child, no less. “Perhaps my counteroffer is more in line with how our relationship will be. ” Arlak snarled, determined to take over control of this negotiation. “I will not tolerate any race making demands in front of my charged emissaries. For this your life is forfeit. The next diplomat to step in will negotiate your unconditional surrender while our fleet moves towards your homeworld. Alerk, what are the coordinates for this foolish creatures homeworld. ” Arlaks anger was only fueled by the Alerks delay in responding. As his guards moved upon the insubordinate creature he turned and pulled his blaster and shot the human diplomat. Even as he watches its blue and green blood pool around the body he watched as they entered the coordinates into the solar map. As the map zoomed in on where they were, Arlak could feel his fury build, “That is impossible, nothing can live that far down an arm. Those planets are all too unstable to support complex life! He lied to you! ” Even as he said this, he was bringing his pistol towards the Alerk, deeming a headshot best to preserve the meaty breast. But he was brought up short by the movement of the human diplomat standing back up. “I guess you are harder to kill than…” Arlak began before an extremely harsh and guttural Babel came from the creature. “We came in peace, sending the representative of a child of our own, and you respond by trying to kill without provocation. So be it, we will be there shortly to negotiate. ” Turning towards the arrayed emissaries brought to witness the spectacle the human emissary made no attempt to hide the enormous damage to its chest cavity showing organs that did not appear to be fully organic, pieces of metal were clearly seen coated with blue blood. “I would ask the rest of your to consider you and your races response as we discuss with the new governor of this planet our terms. I am sorry, we really did want peace. ” The eyes were bright red as these last parts were said. After that, they went blank, dimming to nothingness as the body went rigid and fell with a thud much louder than such a frame should. “What just happened? ” Arlak screamed as silence descended upon the room. All stared at the body until the alarms started. Commander Thresher had notified General Carver of the issues Simon was having early enough they were both watching the stream and monitoring Simons feed. As the Alien Governor had decided to execute what represented a nine-year-old boy the Commander could feel his temper rising. No sooner had it happened though, than General Carver took over the line taking direct control of Simon. As Commander Thresher listened to the Generals message, he initiated the Fallen Angel protocol. The ring, silently orbiting the planet dropped its smaller inner circle. This circle began to orient itself and set its trajectory to ensure ground troop insertion was at the seat of power. The larger ring began to radiate with life once the small one was free of it. As the ring radiated energy from the wormhole humanity had just connected to it, it glowed almost a yellow-red, as though a ring of fire. The first ring was entering the atmosphere as the Atlas class carrier fleet began to exit the first ring. Their job would be to secure local space. Kotse could feel his shock at watching the dead diplomats fate starting to dull, the alarms in the background almost forgotten as he stared as the body before him. He knew Governor Arlak was not going to let him leave alive. Why are the invasion alarms going off? Humanity couldnt have responded so fast, he began to think when suddenly a loud crack came from the sky and something burning from re-entry fired rockets to slow its descent. It still slammed into the Governors place at the end of the great hall, embedding the bottom lip of the ring into the polished stone floors and tearing a hole through the roof. What is …. Was as far as Kotses conscious train of thought got before the ring suddenly illuminated with at first an orange aura that quickly moved towards a bright red, looking like a flaming eye. In horror, he stared as a mist began to move from the outer portions of the ring and reconstruct a monster in the center. While it bore some similarities to Simon, the creature that emerged and the six to follow it were giants by comparison. Kotse could tell all present were shocked by what they saw as from that ring of fire the first human stepped forward into the room leveling what he realized was a weapon at the Governor. The Governor never managed to get a word our before a bright green flash hit him, effectively removing much of his torso. Even the guards did not seem to know how to respond as more of these creatures entered the room. A few moved as though to fight but quickly joined the governor in his fiery fate. As silence descended upon the room, the first of the monsters spoke. “Gentlemen, My name is Commander Thresher of the Human Expeditionary League. Governor Arlak made it clear where the Dorlak stands with regard to Humanity. Any Dorlak surrendering will be given a fair chance at joining in society after we establish some ground rules… those who fight will die. ” the amplified Babel rolled off the creature echoing through the chamber. As the cold, expressionless plate of the power armor turned towards the diplomats, Kotse felt a sense of dread as it seemed to settle on him. In the background, he could see several of the monsters appeared to be working on the remains of Simon. “Kotse, as our first civil contact, you are now governor as you and your race decide how they wish to proceed as free people. You are now under the protection of Humanity. We come in peace and you need not worry about the Dorlak response. Given their reputation we made contact on all their worlds simultaneously. ” The clipped method to which this was stated, he realized the Dorlak around him for the first time looked scared. As the other emissaries around him stepped away and looked his way, Kotses realization of the full situation dawned on him. Sheepishly, he asked, “What should I tell everyone? ” “We come in peace, dammit, people will be scared because power is being overturned. Put your planet back together, we will help how we can. I am your emissary from Earth, Humanity is here to fight your demons, ” Commander Thresher replied as he stepped over the smoking remains of the prior governor back towards the portal. “Now if you will excuse me, I need to get my luggage and see that Simon is put back together. ” “Simon will recover? ” Kotse asked in disbelief. “Of course, he is a cyborg. He is a machine and my partner for peaceful negotiations. ” As he walked past, Kotse could just hear him mutter under his breath, “I guess that's why only in our lore did the demons fall to earth. Looks like everyone else had to drive them off. We musta buried them. ” Kotse stared in disbelief at the back of the adult human walking back into the ring of fire and stared in horror as it disappeared into the flame. In the back of his mind, he couldnt help but wonder if he just met the true Demons of Babel.

Ill get some of these boring details out of the way first, because they might be relevant. Who knows? I found the thumb drive in a McDonalds restroom in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, on January 3rd. The service was mediocre but the food was hot and the restrooms were clean. I still felt hungover from New Years in Edmonton, and although the roads were alright the other drivers were typical idiots and I needed to stay alert. I was sitting there in that tiny stall, browsing Reddit, not expecting I was about the find the video that would consume my life over the next month. I pulled on the tail of flimsy toilet paper that was dangling from the dispenser, and along with the see-through thin sheet of paper a small object fell out and clattered on the tile floor. I bent over to get a better look; it was a small blue thumb drive. I dont know why I bothered to pick it up and pocket it. I dont usually put random small objects in my pockets, especially from bathrooms in roadside burger joints. But I did. I finished my business and got out of there, and almost forgot I had the little drive until I made it home safely that evening in Winnipeg. My roommate was still with his family in Newfoundland, so I had our little apartment to myself. I didnt start work until the fifth, so I settled in to lounge around and play pointless video games until the early hours. When I took my pants off, the thumb drive fell out. I held it curiously between my thumb and forefinger. There werent any markings on it besides the brand. There was something about it that made me uneasy; maybe it just seemed so intentional, the way it must have been tucked into that toilet paper dispenser. Like someone was hoping that it would be found. I mulled it over for a few minutes; could it be dangerous? Did it have a virus or some sort of malware that would infect my computer and send all of my personal info to its creator? In the end, curiosity won over prudence. I plugged it into my gaming PC, and had a look. There was only one file on the drive, a large video file just labelled 4. The thumbnail was just a dark blue. So of course, being the naive fool I was, I double-clicked on it. I wont tell you yet what I saw, but I sat there riveted. At first it seemed like it was just someones home movie, but weird things started happening that caught my attention and kept me glued to my seat until the very end. When I got to the end and the file stopped playing, I found myself sitting there in my dark bedroom, in my gross black second-hand office chair, white knuckles gripping the armrests, eyes so wide and unmoving they ached and stung from dryness, mouth gaping like a dead fish. Since then, Ive been desperately trying to piece it all together. First, a few details about the file: its about an hour and forty-five minutes long. Strangely, there is no sound. When the file started I fiddled with my volume controls for a bit before realizing that there just wasnt anything to hear. I right-clicked on the file and opened the properties tab, where I discovered the video properties showed it to be 1280x720, data rate of 6028Kbps, total bitrate of 6161kbps, 29 frames per second. I dont know much about file formats, maybe thatll be helpful to someone. Anyways, the point is: the audio information just says NONE. Whoever edited it did so haphazardly. Scenes cut with no transitions, so its really jarring. Sometimes cuts happen mid-sentence when someone is talking. There a few boring long stretches that really should have been taken out. Maybe it made more sense with audio. I watched the video nearly every day since, pausing frequently to analyze details and piece together what happened. Fortunately, I have an acquaintance who is hearing impaired. Hes Marc, the only other person Ive shown the video too. At first he was pretty wary, thinking I was asking him to use his skill like he was performing a party trick, but once he saw the video he had the same reaction and understood. Unfortunately, he wasnt exactly able to provide a transcript. Sometimes the people in the video arent facing the camera. Marc isnt entirely deaf either, he usually needs some sound in order to piece together speech. And its not easy to figure out whats going on in the video, so context clues arent all there. However, he was able to put together enough to provide some of the dialogue that will be in my description of the video. It helps a bit, but we still dont entirely understand the content of the video. It was on January 20th that I finally made the big discovery, that made me realize I had somehow fallen off the deep end and had to share this all with somebody and put out my plea for help. Okay, Ive gone on long enough. Time to describe whats in the video itself. The first scene is inside a car. From later exterior shots, we discover that its a blue Nissan Altima, probably 2009. The camera is pointed out the window at some rocky hills. There are lots of trees: oak, aspen, maple, and so forth. There are a few leaves just starting to turn orange and red. A sign whizzes past; I later managed to pause and read the text “Hardwood Road 400m. ” This is the first of many clues that helped me figure out their route. Theyre in Ontario, heading west. The camera turns to the driver. Shes stunning; not in the sense of a blonde instagram model, but very regal and beautiful. She had dark black hair with a few strands of white. She has a sharp jaw, grey eyes, and a few lines around her eyes. Late thirties, probably. Shes the reason I kept watching the video, the first time. Marc suspects that shes French Canadian, which is one of the reasons he had difficulty with the transcript. The camera is pointed at her a lot. Were pretty sure her name is Rene. Rene notices shes on camera. She smiles at the passenger. “Theres a Tim Hortons ahead. Want to stop and stretch? ” The passenger probably says something like “Yes, and lets grab a coffee. ” “Great idea, ” says Rene. “The road already feels monotonous. ” Theres a bit of silence. The passenger aims the camera ahead down the road for a bit, then back at Rene. “Are you going to film us the entire trip? ” Rene asks with a smile. We dont hear the response, but Rene laughs, then the scene abruptly cuts. The next scene is on a very long bridge over a mix of wetlands, islands, and river. The camera is mostly pointed at the scenery, but a couple of times it looks over at Rene. At one point, Rene looks thoughtful and says something like “Yes, of course she will. ” We dont know what the question was. We see two flags pass by: one Canadian, one American. I later discovered that this is the border; they are on the Sault Ste Marie bridge, crossing into the states. Im still not sure where in the states they stopped next, but it looks like they took advantage of the opportunity for some cross-border crossing. Theres a shot in the parking lot outside a Walmart, where they are loading their bags into the back of the car. We see the passengers legs and feet in one shot, our first good glimpse of her. What we can see of her outfit is a little more feminine and fashionable than Renes simple, comfortable clothes. Shes wearing white open-toed shoes, and her toenails are painted. Shes wearing a flowing black skirt, and from the glimpse of her left hand holding some shopping bags, it looks like shes got a white knit sweater. They root through the bags and show some of their items to the camera; presumably the audio had an explanation of what theyve bought and why, but at this point in the video its kind of confusing. Theres a waterproof box for the video camera. A bunch of pulleys and ropes. Road snacks and drinks. Nose clips, the kind used for diving. A big pair of bolt cutters. Thigh-length wading boots, like fly-fishers use. Its obvious now that theyre on some sort of mission, but its hard to guess what. It looks like theyre going wading, rock climbing, and diving all at once. When I first saw all of this, I wondered if they were going after hidden treasure or something. The camera pans up to Renes face, catching her mid sentence. Just a note- where you see parenthesis, those are off-camera gaps in the dialogue that weve guessed at. “(That should) be enough. If not. is only an hours drive from the site. ” We think she said the name of a town there, but Marc just screwed up his face and shrugged. He said she spoke it very quickly, and its a complex word. He thinks it has an “s” in the middle and maybe an “r” on the end, and its probably three syllables. If we could figure it out, we might understand more about what happened. The next shot is in the car, driving through North Dakota. Its presumably the next morning. The camera is pointed at Rene, and we only know her side of the conversation, so its hard to guess at whats going on. She sips her coffee and looks thoughtful, like shes listening. “Yeah, were not far off schedule. We should make it to Moose Jaw tonight. ” Between her accent and the strange name of the town, it took us a while to figure out “Moose Jaw. ” It wasnt until I plotted out their route on Google Maps that I realized this must be where they stopped. That was an important realization. In a very roundabout way, it led to me figuring out exactly when this trip took place. This conversation in the car took place on August 24th, 2019. The passenger asks something like “(Do you need a break? Want me to drive? ” “Sure, in a while, ” Rene replies. “Well stop and stretch at the border, and we can switch drivers. ” Theres a gap where neither of them are talking. The passenger turns the camera to the road to take in some scenery, then pans back. Were not sure what the passenger just asked, but Rene looks suddenly serious. “Beth, ” she says, finally giving us the passengers name. “We cant focus on that yet. All we can do is offer her the-” Were not sure of the rest of the conversation. Beths hands get shaky. She looks away from Rene a lot. We know that they continue this important conversation, and Rene starts to look upset but is clearly trying to keep Beth calm. Marc caught a few random words but isnt certain: drive, river, help, and “do our best. ” The scene cuts suddenly with the tension unresolved. The next shot is a brief one. Rene is smiling now, snacking on some cheetos. They are entering a small town; a sign welcomes them to Portal. In the next shot, they have switched seats. We finally see Beth. She is a little younger than Rene, wearing more makeup, and has big round sunglasses on. She is happy now. She puts out her hand, and Rene follows it with the camera down to her own knee. She takes Beths hand in her own and squeezes it. Its a very sweet, sort of Thelma-and-Louise moment. Theyre obviously good friends. Rene watches the road for a bit. We are back in Canada. The trees are getting more sparse, and we can see more and more of the flat boring prairies Saskatchewan is famous for. Road signs are kilometres. Gas prices are in cents per litre. At this point, I think Rene asks Beth what she wants for dinner. “Chinese, ” Beth says with a smile, and laughs. I dont know what the in-joke is, but Im pretty sure of the word because suddenly the scene cuts to the inside of a restaurant. Its a chinese buffet. The first time I watched the video, I felt a surge of recognition, and I realized that Id been to this restaurant before. I didnt figure out where and when until later, when I realized they were in Moose Jaw. Then I realized that this was a restaurant I sometimes stopped at on my road trips back and forth from my hometown to my new home in Winnipeg. Beth has the camera again. She is watching Rene eat. Rene blushes and tries to demur from the camera. As their eating slowed and their chopsticks settled on their plates, their conversation turned serious again. “At least a hundred and fifty feet, ” Rene answers to some unseen questions. “(Do we have enough rope? ” “Yes, we got two hundred and fifty each. Its lots. ” Im not sure what the next question was. “Then we just use the winch and pull ourselves free. ” The next part of the conversation is unknown, because Rene starts fiddling with her chopsticks, mumbling, and grazing on more of her meal. Marc rolled his eyes in frustration at this point, and said something about how “hearing people” do this shit all the time and it drives him nuts. Presumably they continue discussing technical aspects of their adventure. Rene looks very sober and anxious about it, but shes still clearly keeping it together for Beths sake. Beth gently sets down the camera, but for some reason leaves it running and pointed at the interior of the restaurant while she leaves for the bathroom. The other patrons of the restaurant continue eating and dont notice. Another jarring cut to the inside of a hotel room. Beth is ready for bed, in a t-shirt and underwear. Shes sitting cross-legged on the king-size bed, holding an iPad in her lap. Her face is glued to the screen, which is shining blue light up at her. She looks like shes been crying. Its unclear why Rene is recording this, it feels like a violation of privacy, but Beth doesnt seem to mind. She looks up. “Shes still following us, isnt she? ” Were not sure of Renes answer, but it doesnt seem to comfort Beth much. She just nods. Theres presumably some sort of noise, and suddenly they both look to the window. The window must be open a crack, because the sheer curtains are moving gently in the breeze. There doesnt seem to be anything there. Rene spontaneously rushes to the window, still holding the camera. As she approaches it, the scene cuts again. I watched that footage a hundred times, I think, searching for whatever startled them. Sometimes I convince myself I can see a face beyond, but its clear from the view of the building across the parking lot that they must be on at least the seventh floor. Its the next morning, and theyre leaving Moose Jaw. Rene is driving again, clutching a cup of coffee in her right hand and never setting it down. She doesnt look like she slept much. The camera stays focused on her for a solid five minutes as she drives and sips. Then, in response to an unseen question, she suddenly speaks. “Yes. She probably will. ” After another minute and twenty seconds, another cut. Suddenly the camera seems to be inside of a bag or something; its almost completely dark, but the bag must be open enough to show some blurry dark shapes moving around like someone is walking. I later speculated that they were trying to catch a conversation with someone on record, and hidden the camera in a bag. Now though, its just four minutes of vague blurry shapes. Then Rene is holding the camera. Its pointed at Beth. Beth looks like shes been crying, but is putting on a brave face now. They take a left turn at a tiny town called Dunmore, then another theres another sudden cut. They eventually stop for the night. They arent a hotel tonight, but in someones home. From context, Im guessing that these are Beths parents, or some other close relatives. Rene is holding the camera now, pointing it at Beths mother who his cooking on the stove. Shes wearing an old-fashioned pink apron with lace edges, and has a matching oven mitt on. She looks like an older, shorter Beth, with her blonde hair cut into a bob that doesnt really suit her. She smiles nervously when she sees that shes being filmed, and makes some comment about “that camera” before hiding in embarrassment behind the oven mit. Beth steps into frame and laughs, patting her mother on the back and presumably offering to help her cook, because then we see Mom handing her a cheese grater and a block of cheddar. Rene pans over across the kitchen to where Beths father is stepping into the room. He looks stern, almost angry, and is clutching a tumbler of amber fluid like he wants to smash it across Renes face. The father says something, but hes saying it through gritted teeth. Marc thinks part of it is “would lead her through this, ” but thats a guess. Beths mother steps quickly back into frame, gently taking Dads glass and saying something to him to try and calm him down. He looks like hes about to say something, but theres another sudden cut. The next shot is very brief, and confusing. Its a bathroom sink- presumably at Beths parents place. From the lighting it looks like the middle of the night, and the only light on is the bathroom light overhead. The sink is full of strange, wet, tangled gray hair. The angle of the shot doesnt let us see the mirror, so we dont know whos holding the camera. They just linger on the hair for about five seconds, then another cut. The next shot is in the entryway of Beths parents house. Beths mother says something like “Sorry for the (incident) last night. ” She almost elbows Dad in the ribs, and he mutters what must be an apology. The camera pans around the room, momentarily showing Beth and Rene in the hall mirror, before the shot ends. I kept coming back to this shot for some reason. I thought it was noteworthy that this is probably the only shot where we can see both Renes and Beths faces at the same time. But something in the back of my head kept itching over this, and eventually I realized the obvious: from the angle of the shot, the camera should be visible. But neither of them are holding it, and theres no one else there. Next is another highway driving shot. Its short, and just seems to establish that they are leaving Fort MacLeod, a town in Alberta. The next shot is from inside the car. Its unclear what the camera is supposed to be recording, because its on its side and laying on the dash, pointed haphazardly out the passenger window. Its like they set it down, left the car, and the camera turned on by itself. Outside the car is a parking lot, surrounded by coniferous trees. Everything looks like its covered in mist and fog. I speculate that theyve made it to the Rocky Mountains now. They are probably at a rest stop. There is a strange figure across the parking lot. It looks like a gray-haired woman, but I was never able to zoom in on this shot well enough to see. She seems to be just staring at the car, directly at the camera lens. Rene and Beth walk in from out of frame and get into the car. They dont seem to have noticed the woman. As the car starts up, one of them must have noticed that the camera is on, because it shakes like its being picked up. Then the shot ends. After that, its really difficult to figure out their route. The next shot is inside a busy cafe where they order hot drinks and cheesecake, but theres no clues to figure out where it is. Rene is holding the camera. There isnt much conversation, and large parts of it are obscured by Beths hands or her cup. She looks uneasy and distracted. She keeps looking out the window. The next shot is back in the car. At one point I saw a highway sign, but other than knowing that they are now in British Columbia, I cant figure out their location. Beth is driving again, Rene is holding the camera. “You think filming everything will really help? ” asks Beth. “(Filming was your idea. )” “Yeah. Yeah it was, wasnt it? I just thought that we should, because…” This part is unintelligible. Rene asks something, were not sure what. “Maybe itll help. Maybe itll be easier for the next person. ” Theres a long pause in the conversation. “I wish we had never found that USB drive, ” Beth sighs. Obviously, when Marc told me this part, I just about lost my mind. Id already developed some strange kind of connection with Beth and Rene, something that I couldnt put my finger on. But now there was some kind of parallel between us that was emerging. Theres only one more shot. Its impossible to know where, but Im fairly certain that they are now far past the Rockies. The mountains in the background look different, older or more worn somehow. I think they are somewhere in the B. C. interior. They have parked in what appears to be the parking lot of a defunct facility of some kind. Everything is in disrepair. The pavement is riddled with potholes, some of which are already growing saplings. They seem to be in some kind of valley, but its so heavily forested that its hard to see much of the scenery. The camera glances over at the entrance to the parking lot. The road also looks disused. There was a heavy gate blocking the parking lot, but now it was swinging in the wind. I understood why they brought the bolt cutters. Beth is holding the camera. Rene has a very strong, stoic look on her face. She turns to the camera. “Its going to be okay. Remember, she cant hurt you. Okay? We can do this. ” Beth makes some sort of response, and Rene nods. They load up their gear in a duffel bag and begin hiking down an old trail through the woods. Its treacherous; it looks like nobody has been down here in a while. A couple of times Rene takes out a saw and clears some branches to make the way more passable. After a few minutes, a clearing becomes visible ahead. Then they descend below the tree line, and it becomes obvious that this isnt just a clearing. The camera pans over the area, and I think that if I could hear them they would both be gasping in awe. I know I do every time I get to this point. Theyre near the water line now, of what must have been an enormous reservoir. There is mud… literally everywhere. The water must have drained away recently, because its all fresh and wet and brownish-gray. It coats nearly everything below the old water level, except a few rocky outcroppings. Off to the left there is a bank that must have been a picnic spot on the shore of the reservoir, because I can see an area of green grass surrounding a picnic table and a tall lone aspen tree. Around this area is just mud. Rene and Beth carefully hike over to the table. From here, something new comes into sight. There are a bunch of buildings below that mud line, enough to be a hamlet or a small town. Theyre vague ruined blocks now, probably made of brick, coated in mud, like a child had been building houses out of clay and left them half-finished. Beth pans over to Rene, who is kneeling next to the aspen tree, winding a rope around it. She is saying something, but its not very clear because her mouth is obscured by the camera angle and some of the terminology is hard for Marc for decipher. He caught “were going down, ” “the ropes are tight, ” and “pull it tight. ” I thought about finding a friend with climbing experience to explain the setup with the ropes and pulleys to me, but I decided that the fewer people who knew about the video the better. As Rene is finishing setting up the ropes, Beth says something, I have no idea what. Rene nods. She reaches into her pocket and pulls out an envelope. Inside is a piece of lined paper, written on with felt marker. She smooths it out and sets it down on the picnic table. Beth brings the camera over it, and lingers there for a few seconds. Of course, I have paused the playback to read the message several times. Why they wrote it down instead of saying it, I dont know. The whole video theyre acting like I can hear them, but for this brief moment they seem to know that I will have to read this. Were very sorry. We have no control over what happens after this. We tried our best to follow the instructions perfectly, but if we have failed someone else will have to try next. Before you make the attempt, do as we did. Record your journey. Pass on this message: Only one thing will satisfy her. Only one thing will complete the drowned village. Bring it to her, but if you fail, you must pass on the message. The camera panned back up, and settled on Beths face. She had turned the camera around to speak directly into it, but her hands are unsteady so her words arent totally clear. “Shes been following us for (several weeks. Ever since we found the USB drive. We see her everywhere. (We havent been able to) sleep. I hope this is the end of it- if not, you will have to try next. Im so sorry. It happened to us too. Wish us luck, but if we fail) good luck to you. ” Beth set the camera down on the table, and I watched them put on their hip waders, strapping them over their shoulders. Then they strapped themselves into climbing harnesses, and clipped themselves on to the rope. Beth pulled the nose clips out of her pocket and put one on, handing the other to Rene. I was confused by this for a while, then I realized that if this was a body of water that had recently been emptied, it probably stank. The mud was probably full of bacteria, algae, some freshwater plants, even a few fish and other animals. It was all in the early stages of decomposition. Beth picked up the camera and followed Rene down past the water line. They tried to stick to the rocky areas, but sometimes they had to wade carefully through the mud. Some parts looked to be deeper than others, so they had to avoid getting stuck in the more treacherous areas. The purpose of the ropes became obvious: if they got mired in the mud, their only hope might be pulling themselves out. At one point Beth leaned over to examine something. It was like a stringy texture in the uniform grey of everything, stuck into the mud. She reached down and pulled it up, and I realized it was some kind of hair algae or stringy moss. It looked exactly like the “hair” in the sink at her parents house. Now that I was aware of it, I realized it was all over the place. They made it to the largest, and highest-up building. Up close, it was obviously by its architecture that it had been a small old schoolhouse. Rene walked right up to it, and Beth must have said something in alarm, but Rene just looked over her shoulder and smiled. She said something like “it should be safe. ” Part of her speech is cut off as she turns back to the building, then Marc could make out more when she turns back. “They explored it in the last video. I want to see it for myself. ” So in they went. Inside were rows of very old desks. If there had been chalkboards or decorations in the school, they were long eroded or caked in mud. The mud was calf deep, making the seats of the desks look strangely low to the ground. There wasnt really much else to see. They retraced their steps and checked their ropes, then descended to the town. Everywhere it was more of the same. If this town had been sacrificed to build a dam, it would have been cleared of artifacts before it was flooded. If not, if it had fallen prey to some kind of flood or disaster, then the everyday items of the residents lives were washed away or buried in the mud. All that was left was the structures themselves, and they were crumbling away too. The camera looked around nervously, then settled on Rene. Rene shrugged. She reached into her pocket and pulled something out. It was an old antique bell, the kind that a farm wife might ring to call everyone in for supper. “Yeah, I think so, ” Rene replied to Beths unseen question. “The guy said it was from this town, but who knows. As far as we can tell, she was the schoolteacher. ” Rene carefully and ceremoniously set the handbell down on an exposed rock jutting out of the mud. She looked at Beth, then back and forth down the muddy valley. Suddenly she screamed, and pointed uphill. The camera swung quickly around and settled on a figure standing in the mud about fifty paces away. It was that same grey-haired woman, but now I realized that she wasnt grey from age. She was grey from head to toe, covered in that same mud. She pointed directly at the camera, and just stood there. The camera starts shaking, and it seems like Beth and Rene are trying to quickly get out of there. At this point they must hear whats coming. At the last moment, the camera turns back towards the woman, but this time shes not there. Shes obscured behind an enormous thirty-foot tall wall of white water, rushing down the valley, coming towards the camera at high speed. There was no time to escape. The camera gets caught up in the wake. It doesnt go too far down the valley, because its snapped securely into its waterproof case, which is strapped to Beths wrist, who is tied to the aspen tree. So it spins around and around for a few minutes, and as the initial rush of water goes past it settles to the bottom of the reservoir and lies still, pointed back up the hill where the woman is still standing, unmoved by the water. She is still staring directly into the lens. This is the final shot, and it lasts for another four minutes. Everything is underwater, dark and still. The woman stands there unflinching the entire time. Near the end, Renes body floats slowly into view, still tethered to the faraway tree. Thats the video. And now you probably know why I described it, instead of just uploading for you to watch. It was meant for me all along. I knew this for sure on January 20, when I went back and watched the scene in the Chinese restaurant. You see, the reason I was able to figure out the exact date of the video is because Im sitting there, in the background, eating my fried rice with a spoon. You can see me clearly once you zoom in. Im wearing my red hoodie and black jeans. After I watched the video, she started showing up everywhere. She comes to my window at night, watching me sleep. I see her in playgrounds, back alleys, out of the corner of my eye. I went to the movies and she was in the front row, but was gone when the movie let out. She wont leave me alone, and I know what I have to do now. Marcs coming with me, she found him too. He agrees with me, we need to follow Rene and Beths path and try to satisfy the woman in the reservoir. Ive barely slept in weeks; she is ruining my life. On the way there, were going to have to figure out our offering to her. I have no idea what will satisfy her, but I have to try. Im on my way to the pawn shop to buy a video camera, just in case. (Wish us luck. The only question left- and the thing I need your help with- where is she? Thats why Im posting. I dont know where to find the village...
