Here is our transcript:
TheFreeRadical: So you know stuff about Grayskins?
TheFreeRadical: Well, that was noncommittal.
Thoth: I noted in particular that you didn't provide any information on the internal workings, merely their appearance.
Thoth: I thought it would be a good idea to provide your readership with additional information that you didn't cover.
TheFreeRadical: I didn't really get a chance to see the "internal workings" of the one I met. I was too busy burning it.
TheFreeRadical: I'm sure my readership will appreciate any additional information.
Thoth: The proper response, yes.
Thoth: It's a pity that fire is the best way to dispose of Choir, it's a terrible way for the people who have been inundated with it to die.
TheFreeRadical: So do they choose to be like that?
TheFreeRadical: Or does it force itself upon them?
Thoth: Very rarely the former.
TheFreeRadical: Well, that's a pity.
Thoth: Once somebody has been exposed to the fungal form of Choir for long enough, it begins to grow on and inside them.
TheFreeRadical: Is there any way to get rid of it other than burning?
Thoth: Then the very thoughts of the victim begin to be shaped by them.
Thoth: None very effective, no.
Thoth: I have heard good things about acid, but none verifiable.
TheFreeRadical: Huh. Their thoughts are affected by the Choir?
TheFreeRadical: Does the fungus get into their brain?
Thoth: Yes, that's exactly what it does. Soon enough, the Choir is changing their thoughts without them ever knowing it.
TheFreeRadical: How do you know about this?
Thoth: Yesterday drowning their cat in the bathtub was a reprehensible idea, but hey, why not, right?
Thoth: Certain connections that I am not at liberty to discuss at this junction.
TheFreeRadical: How many of the Grayskins have you seen? Do you know how many there are?
Thoth: I have seen two, but neither were active.They don't seem to be as numerous as other servants.
TheFreeRadical: What do you mean, "active"?
Thoth: In fact, I wouldn't classify them as proxies at all. They are simply the end point of the unlucky victim.
Thoth: They had both been partially absorbed by the fungal Choir. It looked like it had been thriving in their homes for months.
TheFreeRadical: That is some freaky fucking shit.
Thoth: Do you, by any chance, know how Choir spreads?
TheFreeRadical: I've heard that it appears as a blur, as a shadow, and as the fungus.
Thoth: Personally (and this is just conjecture on my part) I believe that the 'blur and shadow' forms act as carriers.
Thoth: They spring from small concentrations of fungal Choir and spread it to other locations when human carriers are not practical.
TheFreeRadical: I personally want to know why it wants to spread chaos or suicide or whatever.
TheFreeRadical: It seems to like fucking with us just to fuck with us.
Thoth: Who knows?
TheFreeRadical: Fuck, I found your blog.
TheFreeRadical: You're a fucking Timberwolf.
Thoth: Did you, now?
TheFreeRadical: A fucking Archangel death cultist.
Thoth: Ah, yes, the aforementioned connections.
Thoth: Now, now, calm down.
TheFreeRadical: So that's your "mysterious connection," huh?
TheFreeRadical: Do all you proxy fuckers get together and share stories?
Thoth: The ones who still like to think of themselves as human, yes.
TheFreeRadical: I guess that discounts the Grayskins.
Thoth: I think a great many of them have absolutely no idea what's happened to them.
TheFreeRadical: Why even contact me? Won't this look bad, sharing information with someone on the other side?
Thoth: If they try to have a thought that the Choir doesn't like, it appears to be swiftly excised.
Thoth: Personally, I sympathize with and try to help so-called 'runners' whenever I can.
TheFreeRadical: Really? Why?
Thoth: If they evade the Others, they die of natural causes.
Thoth: You have read Steward's blog, yes?
TheFreeRadical: The more runners survive, the more they can embrace the Archangel?
TheFreeRadical: Any other information you would like to impart?
Thoth: Before, I mentioned human carriers.
Thoth: The second 'Grayskin' was found surrounded by Choir, but there was none actually inside him.
Thoth: We have reason to believe that the Choir exited his body by force.
TheFreeRadical: Fucking hell.
TheFreeRadical: More reason to burn them.
Thoth: The moral of the story appears to, all too often, be "Just burn it all the fuck down."
Thoth: I believe that is all for tonight, Mr Radical?
TheFreeRadical: Yeah. I'm sure to have some pleasant dreams.
So there you have it. I had a relatively nice chat with a fucking Timberwolf who gave me some disturbing information.
