My, my. You must be one lovely fellow to be around.

What you have to understand is that they're not film producers. These men aren't professionals, and they're doing the best they can. Sure, they've hit a little rough patch, but it will pick right back up again. Your whinging about this is rather annoying, to be frank. If you really, really hate it this much, then that's just splendid. But we, as fans, don't want to hear of any of your pathetic little rambles and rants about something we actually enjoy. No, it isn't going to be perfect (nothing ever is), but it's that imperfection that makes it as lovely as it is. Testosterone-hyped college bros making a video series about working out and Slender Man? Count me in.

If you honestly can't stand it, then why on earth would you watch it? Just to find yourself more and more annoyed by it? If you want something you consider perfect, start searching. Search until you go blind and then search more, because nothing is going to live up to your snobby and stingy standards, sir.

Actually, it didn't work. Final Fantasy VII's story is still a big mess and Advent Children made nothing more clear.

Actually, Jeebles, your post is the most ignorant I've ever heard. What you described is chaos. Nothing more. Oh, we've moved past the need for a book series to finish as a book series, have we? Then how come book series still finish as books? Simple, because it works better that way. Ever notice how all the mediums are very different and if a story goes from one to another, it gets changed? Well, that's why it's best you just keep your idea in one format until you finish it the first time. You can adapt a story into another form, but damn it, have a finished product before you do.

I don't recall the parts of VII which were a mess, and AC's a sequel, not an explanation. It still made money, which was it's aim.

The mediums change the work within, yes; that is why EverymanHYBRID now spans many mediums, so that it may manipulate the changes to it's advantage. Would you want to see HABIT as videos? I doubt it.

We've already seen HABIT. He inhabits Evan's body, remember?

In what ways has EH manipulated the changes to it's advantage?

So basically, innovation is bad is what Roni here is trying to tell us.

Deep. What a traditionalist.

I'll ask again: do you think HABIT's trials would work well as videos? Do you think #jeffismissing would have worked as a video?

You're doing it again. You're so set in thinking your right. No one knows if Evan is actually HABIT, it's possible, but it's not confirmed. Back in the Marble Hornets thread you were positive that Sinclair was Alex and you outright insulted everyone who said otherwise. And look how that turned out.

I never said Evan was HABIT, however, it is obvious that HABIT is taking him over for brief arounds of time.

What innovation? Sticking the first act of a story in book form, the middle act a video game, and the third as a movie is not innovative. It just makes it more difficult to follow.

HABIT is a bit too powerful for Evan to just be crazy, since all signs and warnings point to the Rake being his enforcer.

Cram it, Konaa. I'm tired of you miserable people attacking me everytime I mention I dislike something about one of the vlogs or blogs. The whole seven trials angle has brought the story to a near complete halt. How many updates on the main hybrids channel do we get these days? Oh, yes, hardly any. That's right.

Ron, generalization does not help your argument at all. Yes, the HYBRIDs haven't updated on their normal channel. On the other hand I'm guessing since you don't follow the Trials, (and to be honest I don't follow them much anymore except for) the box videos that are connected to EMH. And if you want a few more videos, well:



And as a blogger, you should know that some things take time. There's been many series that have been put on hold for whatever reason, yes. I'm sure they'll get around to things but until then you can watch another series until they update, no? Now for the other matter I'm going to talk about pertaining to how some have acted, you can read the rest of my would-be post RIGHT HERE..

Oh, and as for who HABIT is, I'll wait for the big reveal to come.

Where does the theory about HABIT being Evan gone crazy come from anyway? Is there something I missed? I thought I'd pretty well gotten caught up on everything with EMH and I haven't seen anything that would make me think that Evan could be HABIT.

So uh, yeah, how did that get started?

Okay, Ron, you made your goddamned flamewar thread. Keep it where it belongs and stop. Posting. In. Here.

Unless you have something more to say than, "LOL THERE'S NOTHING TO WATCH SO STOP TELLING ME TO WATCH SOMETHING ELSE LOSERS", do not post in this thread. Go to the little anti thread you've made, and post there, where people will expect to find your whinging. Not here, where people expect to find updates on the Trials.

As for your entire argument, well... It's not really an argument at all. You aren't even talking with the other members half the time. You're talking at them. Which makes having a normal conversation and/or debate with someone nearly impossible.

Also, somewhere along the line, you said what Jeebles' described was chaotic. You're actually right. It's very chaotic. I suppose that's why these kinds of series are called chaotic fiction. Obviously this isn't your kind of thing. That's cool, whatever. But that doesn't mean you have to come on here and whinge about it in a thread that was made for updates on the Trials.

Now, you can either take this all into consideration and play nicely or you can continue to be a fuckwhistle. In which case, I can assure you, you'll end up banned. Frankly, you're making yourself look like a troll who is boiling with very real rage over his favourite series not working out just the way he wants it to. And we don't deal with trolls here. If this is upsetting you that greatly - so greatly that you have to take it out on the members here - then perhaps I'm not stepping out of line when I say you could use some air. Just step outside your house, go for a walk, and breathe. This is an internet series. Just. An internet. Series.

What? No it doesn't. You know full well how to watch a movie, play a game and read a book. Those are all narrative forms that are pretty well ingrained into our culture. The internet as an expressive medium has been pretty fervent in blending up different narrative forms including literature, film, comics, games and radio plays to exploit their different narrative qualities, it's been going on for the past decade by this point, and for EMH the mixture of tweets and videos makes perfect sense for their primary narrative device of a group of "real" people trying to update the wider world on the hailstorm of shit that's unloading on them

Anyway, the trial situation at hand. I'll admit it's bugging me because I can no longer tell if FRA wrestled himself into the narrative by withholding the box or if EMH have always planned the "gamejack" incident in order to create a situation where HABIT can have the rabbits do something potentially appalling (for example they vote him out, HABIT interprets this as having him slaughtered, making them complicit in his death) as part of his corrupting process. Or if it's some mixture of the two. I do really hope it's not just a way of plugging the gap in video production though

...should I just leave now then?

Anyways. Whether it was an actual gamejack or not, I like the way they've worked it into the narrative. Those boys can think on their feet for sure.

Pfft, Konaa, you and Jeebles both are aren't the same kind of trolls. You're both intelligent trolls. This guy... was not.

Anyways... maybe it's cause I'm not closely following the trials, but I really like what's going on right now. Gamejack or not, EMH is totally taking it into stride, so it's kind of exciting to see what's going to happen. Honestly, I was a bit bored with the trials before.

HABIT tweets.

There have been a lot of out of time video clips. I wonder if these are past, future, or just present.

Shit's going down, "TRIAL SEVEN: KEEP YOUR BODY BREATHING."
Someone will probably ninja me to this post. Any news from the RABBITS?

None of them seem sure what they're supposed to do. The actual email from Habit had more flavor text, but no more instructions. It's an indefinite trial that ends when only one Rabbit is left.
Also, if you want to speak to Rabbits, #habitsangora is the place to go. Four of seven are regulars and the other three come in sometimes too. You could also go to uF, where six of seven have accounts. I don't think any of the remaining Rabbits have accounts here.

Oh, ok thanks. I didn't realize there weren't any more rabbits with accounts here.
Think I'll go hunt down some info and post it here for people who are lazy like me.

WELL, RABBITS, WE'VE COME A LONG WAY... HERE ARE THE TERMS OF YOUR SEVENTH AND FINAL TRIAL.



FOR A MOMENT, THOUGH, JUST CONSIDER: WE'RE ALL LIKE ONE BIG HAPPY
FAMILY. WE HAVE THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS, AUNTS AND UNCLES, DISTANT,
WEIRD COUSINS WHO YOU MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE FELT UP IN THE GUEST BEDROOM
THAT ONE THANKSGIVING... YES, ONE, LOVING FAMILY.



YOUR DEADLINE FOR THE FINAL TRIAL IS INDEFINITE. REMEMBER, THE TRIALS
WILL CONTINUE SO LONG AS THERE ARE AT LEAST TWO COMPETING RABBITS...



TRIAL SEVEN: KEEP YOUR BODY BREATHING.



GOOD LUCK, RABBITS.
Also, I'd tried habitsangora a few times but when I did it was empty.
