Mr. Lovecraft would be proud, for indeed I did come across a thing on the doorstep. However, rather than the story's variety of thing, this one was more of an it, or rather, an 'It'. After witnessing it firsthand, I have decided to give it a more descriptive name that 'It'. I decided on the Recursive Break, as in a broken Break. Recurse for short.
At ay rate, the Recurse appeared appeared outside my door, almost as though it were a human stopping in for a visit, though in all fairness, that could have been what he was doing. It didn't appear wounded, though fast regeneration might be the cause of that. Another thing I noticed was that his suit does not appear to be actual clothing as Ola'asu's does, but rather a mucous-like coating. If I had to compare it to something, I would choose the Spiderman villain that was also spider-themed, but black. Curse me that I can't remember the name.
At any rate, Recurse never made it past the exterior of my home, though he made a point of making an admirable attempt to either draw mw out, or make me laugh so hard I'd be defenseless to any form of attack. To clarify, Recurse seemed to be enacting a one-man Three Stooges routine, complete with those arthritic tentacles knocking each other about. I was honestly wondering if someone at Sandra's had slipped him some form of narcotic (Yet another thing to research. I must start outsourcing my experiments.)
After these antics ceased, he began to be more direct, standing not so much at my window as trying to get the screen to leave marks on it's non-face. I think it was trying to cause some form of fright, so I put on a horror movie (The Silent Hill movie, actually.). I must say, it was curious, enjoying a movie while Recurse was looking, not so much over my shoulder, but past my right arm. I even asked his opinion afterwards, but he left after the movie ended. What he may or may not have realized is that I had a camera trained on him the whole time, a handy advantage of having a webcam on your computer.
Upon reviewing the video, with the movie synced alongside it, something interesting came to my attention. All the scenes depicting the monster Pyramid Head (who, for non-fans, is a slower, more focused, and more direct version of Ola'asu.) were crystal clear. No static, no video tearing, no audio corruption. I had feature-movie quality video of Recurse staring in my window for those scenes. And something even more interesting occurred to me as I watched this. Recurse's stature, body language, everything except the face, obviously, showed fear.
Head tilted away from the screen, shoulders tucked toward the body, body hunched slightly. Recurse was showing every available indication of fear on a human level, all to a movie monster. As with all things, this warrants investigation.
In non-Eldritch related news, Tony is at his parent's for now, my mobility has improved to the point that I can walk to the lake near my house, and before you ask, yes, I live in the middle of a huge forest, and yes, I take those walks at night, and yes, alone. What else could you possibly expect when Ola'asu is involved? Jokes aside, however, It is nice to be able to stand up from my computer chair and get my favorite snacks without a cane again. Peanut butter on toast is such a stress reliever.
I do believe Tony had a good idea in me making this blog.
