Here’s more information than you ever cared to have about Marble Hornets.
First off, Marble Hornets is a Youtube series written by Troy Wagner
And Joseph Delage
and also Tim Sutton
It’s a horror series that the game Slender was based off of.
It’s set in real time, and filmed in ‘entries’ ranging from 3 minutes to 15 minutes. There are currently 80 entries.
The story starts out with Jay (played by Troy)
receiving tapes from his old college friend Alex Kralie (Joseph)
These tapes are (supposedly) of Alex’s student film Marble Hornets (hence the title) Jay was a part of the cast, as well as a few other people, who I might mention later. Alex instructs Jay to burn these tapes, but like any good horror series character, Jay does not. He forgets about the tapes for awhile and doesn’t see Alex after. But he finds them and watches them and boy is there some weird shit on there. Namely, this guy
The Operator. Boy howdy is he a pain in the ass. Makes life a living hell for everyone involved. (Guess who’s involved….) Alex gets more and more pissy in the videos and starts filming himself. (Blame The Operator) Jay doesn’t really remember this. Jay doesn’t really remember a lot. The first season of the show is, more or less, Jay uploading these crazy weird videos of Alex’s to Youtube. They get darker and Alex is sorta missing and Jay decides to go find his best friend because it sort of looks like he might need some help….
There are other characters that Jay meets up with, all former MH cast mates who have no idea what’s going on like Jessica
And Tim (Tim)
mmmm fab as hell
Anyway these guys, namely Tim, help Jay out on his search for Alex and answers. There are so many questions and so few answers
People are murdered a lot of people run while you still can it’s heartbreaking
There are lots of pills and seizures
Also did I mention that The Operator has proxies? Proxies being people controlled by him. They’re gonna ruin your day.
Affectionately called, by the fandom, Masky
Also, alongside the MH channel, there’s a channel called totheark. They post some pretty creepy videos that go along with the MH videos and usually include codes directed towards Jay that are pretty fun to solve. Who is totheark? Hell if we know. What’s the ark? Why so many questions?
Basically, Marble Hornets is one of the most well written things I have ever had the privilege of stumbling across and I’m so glad I did. It’s gotten me out of some rough times and I cannot stress enough how CLEVER it is.
100/10 would recommend. Here is a link to all of the videos in order.
really though, next person to steal my gifs is going to get an earfull. I don’t like confrontation and i’m not saying i’m gonna straight up yell at anyone but it really, really annoys me and it’s happened at least once now (with one instance of someone deleting my caption and repasting it so it’d look like they made it) so i’m really.. not going to be happy if it happens again.
I see a lot of “NO SADNESS ALLOWED”-esque posts lately and I feel like, while that’s in good heart, very sweet, and probably has brought smiles to people’s faces before, sometimes people need to hear this, too:
It is 100% okay to be sad. You are allowed to be sad, and you are allowed to express your feelings. Just like it’s okay to be happy and talk about how happy you are, it’s just as fine to express and feel your sadness. Bottling your emotions away and forcing yourself to be happy will only do worse for it.
the most exciting thing that has happened today is when my best friend tried to say ‘wait’ and ‘hang on’ at the same time and ended up saying ‘wang on’ and I thought about it on the way home and nearly crashed my car from laughing so hard
I like drinking coffee alone, and reading alone. I like riding the bus alone, and walking home alone. It gives me time to think, and set my mind free.
I like eating alone, and listening to music alone.
But when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with their best friend, I realize that even though I like being alone, I don’t fancy being lonely. The sky is beautiful, but the people are sad. I just need someone who won’t run away.
