    Hey everyone!!!!!!!! Just caught up and I'm so excited I'm so invested I love this podcast it makes me so happy and thrilled and i love the characters !

    I binge listened and so I don't have an episode by episode react thing but hey! Season 3 finale is soon and then there will be more and so hey! Let's have a thread, yeah?

    Let's get out that I just really enjoy the statements by themselves as a closed creepy story, and here's some thoughts per season!

    I really got into it, I just enjoyed the lame-o fool archivist and his jerkness, though I suppose I really focused on the statements in this season cause it's pretty much a big set up season. It did a good job!

    It was! Pretty exciting seeing the archivist be a huge fool and unravel into paranoia and fear and see Martin and Tim just. Get affected by that whoa! And i got pretty endeared to Martin, I love him! Jon and Martin are my big favs tbh. We also get Basira and Daisy and Melanie appearances and hell yeah! And god finishing out about the Sasha thing, definitely was really waiting and watching ever since Sasha got replaced. Michael too!

    This season has way more character interaction that the previous seasons and I love it! And fuck, yknow, this isn't important in any of the grand scheme of things but Martin crushing on Jon I'm like I feel you Martin I really do (and we do share a name HAHAH)
    That little thread will probably not yield much, Jon is a workaholic and textually implied to be Ace (idk about Aro) but like hey! Having this rep outside of statements is cool!

    Also like, Basira and Daisy anyone? :eyes: ?

    Other nongay ramblings tho!
    The fear of the archivist doing dangerous shit in pursuit of knowledge and truth but him still being so afraid I'm like! Yes! I love you! You're being a huge fool but I love you! Your fear is delicious!

    God Tim, i feel bad for him, he's basically a big ball of rage and aloneness. Please! Tim! Use your support system!

    Melanie tho ohhh my god. Elias is deliciously a pompous bastard (i love him) but god what he did to Melanie is incredibly horrible. And Martin though he was better prepared, harsh shit tho :(

    119 was very spooky and I loved the sound of it tbh

    We'll be seeing more of the Spiral I hope! I understand Jon completely in sending them away but! I'm quite endeared to the character heheh. I'm interested in seeing more of that

    The 14 Fears thing and then having avatars (ppl becoming monsters >:P) is pretty interesting! I'm just excited to see where that goes!

    Anyway its 1245 AM ! I'm gay and I love the magnus archives!



    Eta!
    Things!
    Jon burning Gerry like! Good! I was afraid that he might not burn it and be a hugeass binch and! It was hard Archivist you promised and that was the right thing to do!


    AND! Jon making the decision to trust them like! I love that so much! Yes you absolute fool!

    Editing grammar and shit

    Erica occasionally vaguely like a person

    DAISY IS MY FAVE IM LOVE HER
    one of my friends didnt like her until ep 119 bc she saw her as unreliable etc but it's like, no, no... daisy is SUPER CONSISTENT and IMMENSELY reliable, as long as the thing you're relying on her to do is trying to keep basira safe. daisy cares about 1 (one) person. as long as you don't expect her to start prioritising literally anything else higher than basira you're good
    that being said ep 119 was amazing from a daisy perspective. the way shes immediately like "well, I have absolutely no idea what's going on here. You know what that calls for? murder" is, dare I say it? iconic. love her. what a dumpsterfire.

    q: what episode have you thought was the scariest? :D I haven't really gotten creeped out by any of the statements recently but THE BLANKET EPISODE (Tucked In) WAS SO DAMN GOOD, that's one of the ones that's left the biggest impact. (I summarized it to my sibling and they didnt sleep that night hahahah)
    I also love the episode with the brother who's afraid of heights. The ending to that, the picture that painted, is still stuck in my head, very very good (although less outright frightening and more 'oh holy SHIT')

    if i has to ally with an entity itd be the Vast any day. now THATS skirting the border between fear and delight, love me some fear of heights
    (beholding is also p good tho. but SKY! THE INFINITE REACH OF SPACE! THE INCREDIBLE SMALLNESS OF OUR BEINGS!)

    .....so @GlassesBlu about that time they tie jon to a chair and gag him.......

    So! I actually wanna relisten to the eps from the very beginning and talk about them! I'm thinking about typing and posting in big episode batches at least to streamline posting But! I think its big good to go back to and take time to process the info!

    Also! Doodling character designs aaaah
    Can't promise solid draws really cause of school but heck i love this show

    @Erica I *will* get back to you properly on relistens but! Tbh the last 2 eps per season are always well done in getting me to be *aaaah oh no what will happen!!!* mostly me big worrying about the characters heheh

    Eps that I remember right now
    - I big enjoy the vampire hunter eps. Dunno why exactly but they stick in my mind!
    - the stuck in space isolation episode! Man tbh I'm just not into a great loneliness! No thanks! Don't like!
    - helen being trapped in the corridor picture world is also cursed and I don't like that happening to me

    Heheheh he's a trapped fool
    Had a hard time trying to decipher the mood of his gagged sounds, he seemed mostly annoyed, questioning, it's p funny tbh
    And! Did they just fuckin,,, put lotion on him the whole time he was trapped. Ah yes skin treatment in your imprisonment, lovely
    Oh man he tried to tell them his preferred lotion heheheh

    Also just, I like Michael and subsequently Helen, good Michael episode tbh

    Also Jon's frustrated groan when Michael says he'll kill him heheh

    Wonder why Michael wanted to tell Jon their story!
    also very interesting that the spiral said that the never lied to Jon

    @Erica i believ its confirmed by episode 111 family business!

    Really tough to consider who I might serve, has to be something I can safely embody, fits my shape n person

    I might place in The Hunt or The Slaughter, I suppose

    Tho Tbh I'm interested in The Beholding becayse while I say I hate research it's mostly because I'm very afraid of finding the wrong information. And so when I'm actually made to research I have so much tabs and other shit open trying to cross reference information. No doubt this would be easier with better resources. Shrugs!

    And ohoh you see other folks speculations on what kind of fear each of the assistants seem to be embodying

    - Martin: he's got a bit of a connection to spiders, and the Elias distraction is his plan, but shrugs!
    - Daisy: well she's specifically called the hunter by sarah in 119, and has specifically put herself to the task of hunting down spooky things and murdering them dead as doorknobs
    - Basira: People have been connecting her with The End, she's made her peace, I'll have to relisten to her eps. Idk if its related but her rationalizations in 119 were so good, get her moving, love it
    - not exactly sure with Melanie n Tim, somewhere with Slaughter or Desolation. Big Thonk

    ah yeah that's where we get official classification and stuff but this even being a THING is kinda spoilery up until... way earlier than that and i can't for the life of me remember when they officially start categorizing :'D
    I don't think there's such a thing as SAFELY embodying one tbh - I'm not sure it'd have any initial interest in you (general you) if you weren't scared at all. I'm leaning Vast for myself because I'm scared AND delighted, all in one messy go. Freaked out AND comforted. It's the one I can see myself being scared enough of I'd get wrapped up in stuff to begin with but then malleable enough I could be kept around instead of used up and discarded
    tho tbf that's a fairly personal interpretation of what being an avatar includes. I do tho feel that a lot of them are or were disturbed by the thing they now embody, before they became inhuman enough they don't mind anymore?
    to be fair, Martin also pokes fun at the spider thing :p + the web to me is more about control than about spiders, technically, and I haven't seen Martin be much of a control freak
    daisy is an agent of the hunt for sure though. and melanie's anger is something to watch out for. I haven't thought about the end for basira! It does fit quite nicely, even if I'm instinctively like "but georgie!!!" she's technically not an assistant hahaha

    Yeah True haha, tbh that seems mostly like a common fan theory rn, could just be a fun nod to fandom by Writer Sims, since he says he does that, which is pretty cool!
    Also tbh Georgie feels like she's coming back. Her fear being completely gone seems significant in this world controlled by spooky eldritch fear beings

    Hhh well I don't remember official categories either I suppose
    Maybe season 2 end?

    Hm you're right, since it entails losing yourself to the entity, or getting fed on or becoming one who feeds.

    glitterchance 34 Vigilant Gaze Engulfs the Void

    As far as the scariest episodes go, I have to go with a Guest for Mr. Spider.
    Children's books gone creepy or wrong are nightmare fuel to me, especially since it actively ate somebody as Jon watched. Occasionally I'll be in bed at night and think of the way Jon said "Mister Spider wants more." and the description of the looks on the father and son's faces and it just creeps me out too much to sleep.
    Honorary mention for Lost John's Cave because caving in general, especially with the description of the tight spaces, is a big NOPE for me on its own even before you get into
    the audio recording at the end and the desperate whispering.

    Have all of the Big Fears been revealed? I feel like I should know but I can't remember and sometimes I miss stuff because my commute can get loud.
     
  12. GlassesBlu

    GlassesBlu I'll make noir gayer someday :pensive_clown:

    yeah it all gets spelled out side by side in ep 111, like everything gets named n explained

    Though snippets of the fears info appear in earlier epispdes

    A quiet ending but has got neat ideas a hyping up for next season (january Rip)

    It seems that the people Jon has to watch in his dreams are people who have given their statements live, and Basira and Daisy had talked about odd dreams before. Meaning Jon had to watch them rip. And Melanie too

    My poor boy, made a watching terror in the dreams that terrify him, trapped, unalive

    When Elias got punched it was very funny XD and when he said "be seeing you" I was like Snrk! What a bitch I hope we get him back soon.
    Wonder what we'll get under Peter Lukas, worried about the team we have left

    Kinda sad we didn't get more of Martin, darn you Lukas!

    I wonder how we'll get Jon to wake :(

    I AM SO HYPE ABOUT THIS DREAM CONFIRMATION
    we've had hints in this direction before, jon mentioning nightmares, (???i think salesa?? SOMEONE) saying he wouldnt mind leaving a statement bc he has bad dreams already, no one who's left a statement in the past seems willing to follow up on it afterwards, and it's SO NICE to get it basically confirmed that yes, if you leave a statement directly to the archivist you're gonna be stuck reliving it forever. and so will he.
    I was so excited during most of the episode I had trouble even processing the audio ahahahahha
    I LOVE ELIAS. I LOVE ELIAS SO MUCH. I AM SO READY TO LOVE PETER LUCAS AS WELL. legit concerned about the police guy, he gave me bad vibes. what are they handing elias over to??
    anyways DAMN that was a good episode and OH MAN am i excited for the rest! january rip indeed :(
