Transcript
WEBVTT 1 00:00:02.080 --> 00:00:17.190 Hello, Dana, I'm here. Greetings and welcome to down default. This 2 00:00:17.350 --> 00:00:21.070 shore. has been a crazy ride, hasn't it? Well, brace yourselves, 3 00:00:21.390 --> 00:00:25.300 you haven't seen anything yet. I just wanted to stop by and thank 4 00:00:25.379 --> 00:00:30.420 everyone for your support and your listenership throughout two thousand and twenty one down. 5 00:00:30.500 --> 00:00:34.340 The folk will be taking a brief hiatus after this episode. Be Sure to 6 00:00:34.420 --> 00:00:38.850 follow us on social media DTF stories, for updates if they become available. 7 00:00:39.649 --> 00:01:07.150 And now, without further ado, enjoy the show. Dana. Are you 8 00:01:07.310 --> 00:01:15.950 in here? Mr Ritchet? Miss Walls dwarned. Good Heavens, you scared 9 00:01:17.069 --> 00:01:23.060 me. Have you come looking for Dana? When the four of US start 10 00:01:23.140 --> 00:01:30.540 of this journey? Look, it was never parked plan. When he was 11 00:01:30.819 --> 00:01:37.329 born, I made a promise to his father that I would protect him and 12 00:01:37.569 --> 00:01:47.010 keep him happy at all costs, and I have done that. For the 13 00:01:47.129 --> 00:01:55.680 past year he has flourished in my care. Mr Warrington, while your loyalty 14 00:01:56.599 --> 00:02:07.750 is commendable, your inability to adapt is bordering on the edge of problematic. 15 00:02:07.349 --> 00:02:12.949 What in the world so are you talking about? I have done everything asked 16 00:02:12.990 --> 00:02:19.180 of me. Ask Mr Richard, and Mr Richard and Mr Kelly are currently 17 00:02:19.740 --> 00:02:31.210 indisposed and will not be joining us for the rest of eternity. I promised 18 00:02:31.330 --> 00:02:46.719 him all means necessary, and you know for too well his love for attention 19 00:02:47.800 --> 00:02:57.080 to detail. But, much like Dana, you, Mr Warrington, were 20 00:02:57.199 --> 00:03:07.990 never part of this plan. Are you sure this is the right place? 21 00:03:08.349 --> 00:03:12.750 Daphney asked, peeking at the directions that were given to her on the phone. 22 00:03:13.740 --> 00:03:17.460 Before them stood a large windowless building surrounded by a large cement fence with 23 00:03:17.620 --> 00:03:23.020 barbed wire. A rickety gate was the only way in, which was odd 24 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:27.810 because the gate seemed insufficient to all the other barricades to get to the ominous 25 00:03:27.889 --> 00:03:31.569 building. Yep, that's what the guy on the phone said, and he 26 00:03:31.810 --> 00:03:37.490 spoke really slowly, so I'm sure I got everything right. Fred said, 27 00:03:37.889 --> 00:03:42.960 turning off the van's ignition. It's just so odd. On all the maps 28 00:03:43.039 --> 00:03:46.919 and guide books this building does not show up. All that it says is 29 00:03:46.319 --> 00:03:52.319 former township of humility and a big blank space, almost like a void of 30 00:03:52.479 --> 00:03:55.909 nothingness. Thelma pushed her thick glasses back up her nose as she squinted at 31 00:03:55.949 --> 00:04:00.990 the map. Zoinks, if the map says it not here, but the 32 00:04:00.069 --> 00:04:04.990 directions do. Man, what does that mean? Shaggy whispered to his trusty 33 00:04:05.069 --> 00:04:11.419 canine companion, Raol. Scooby responded, sniffing the air for any signs of 34 00:04:11.539 --> 00:04:15.420 snacks. Well, if this is the place, we better do some investigating. 35 00:04:15.699 --> 00:04:19.939 Daphne opened the van door and got out. Her Purple Dress stood out 36 00:04:19.980 --> 00:04:25.410 in the gray mist that surrounded the compound. Fred Velma, shaggy and scooby 37 00:04:25.490 --> 00:04:29.769 soon joined her, taking in the sights. They had received a call a 38 00:04:29.810 --> 00:04:32.649 few days ago from a man who would not give his name. The man 39 00:04:32.810 --> 00:04:38.920 said that his parents had been killed and that everything pointed to this location. 40 00:04:39.720 --> 00:04:43.639 He himself could not look further into this matter, but he believed that his 41 00:04:43.879 --> 00:04:50.040 parents death was at the hands of the WHENDIGO. WHENDIGO the mythologic joke, 42 00:04:50.160 --> 00:04:56.269 creature or evil spirit that originates from the folklore of the first nations. It 43 00:04:56.389 --> 00:05:00.069 is a malevolent spirit, sometimes depicted as a creature with human like characteristics, 44 00:05:00.470 --> 00:05:05.629 who possesses people and invokes instatiable feelings of greed and hunger, often creating those 45 00:05:05.670 --> 00:05:11.939 under its influence to commit murder and sometimes even cannibalism. Thelma read from the 46 00:05:11.980 --> 00:05:17.019 wikipedia website on her phone. Evil spirits that makes you commit murder. Yikes. 47 00:05:17.540 --> 00:05:21.449 I mean man, that's just not cool, Shaggy said, stepping back 48 00:05:21.490 --> 00:05:26.529 towards the van. Why don't you all just go ahead, scooby and I 49 00:05:26.610 --> 00:05:30.209 will stay in the van and wait. No, Scooby and shaggy, you 50 00:05:30.250 --> 00:05:33.250 will check the perimeter of this place. Daphne and I will see if we 51 00:05:33.370 --> 00:05:38.000 can get in. And Velma, you stay in the van and do some 52 00:05:38.160 --> 00:05:41.680 more research on this place and let us know if you find anything out. 53 00:05:42.319 --> 00:05:46.279 Thelma rolled her eyes, for it always took charge in situations like this, 54 00:05:46.720 --> 00:05:49.269 and it was really pissing her off. She was the brains behind the whole 55 00:05:49.269 --> 00:05:54.629 gang. Most of the cases were solved by her her the others were just 56 00:05:54.870 --> 00:06:00.269 deadweight that ended up running around causing more chaos and sidetracking the mission. But 57 00:06:00.550 --> 00:06:04.379 she would rather stay in the van. This case gave her the he be 58 00:06:04.579 --> 00:06:09.899 geebs more so than any other of the cases they have solved. Most of 59 00:06:09.980 --> 00:06:13.500 the time it was just a local masked guy trying to scare away kids from 60 00:06:13.540 --> 00:06:18.290 his nefarious business, but this was a murder, a double murder, and 61 00:06:18.490 --> 00:06:27.129 this place called Mask had evil written all over it. Sure thing, Fred 62 00:06:27.370 --> 00:06:30.769 Velma answered. As she stepped back into the van. The four remaining split 63 00:06:30.810 --> 00:06:34.759 up just as Fred said. Scooby and shaggy taken the perimeter and Fred and 64 00:06:34.800 --> 00:06:40.920 Daphney taking the interior, just beyond the rickety gate. This is very interesting, 65 00:06:41.480 --> 00:06:44.839 Fred said, upon entering the gate. Why would you create such a 66 00:06:44.920 --> 00:06:48.110 large wall with such deterrence as barbed wire, only to have a rickety gait 67 00:06:48.269 --> 00:06:54.350 as your entrance? It's like they want us to come in right. And 68 00:06:54.509 --> 00:06:58.389 what type of office has no windows? I mean seriously, it must suck 69 00:06:58.509 --> 00:07:02.579 to work in there, if there's anyone there. Daphney added. As she 70 00:07:02.779 --> 00:07:08.100 walked up the cement path with weeds growing out of the cracks, a strange 71 00:07:08.180 --> 00:07:12.660 howling noise came from above as the dark clouds that hung over the complex began 72 00:07:12.699 --> 00:07:16.370 to thunder. The noise scared daphney right into Fred's arms. And scared, 73 00:07:17.009 --> 00:07:21.290 she said. Her face close to Fred's, she could smell all his Cologne 74 00:07:21.370 --> 00:07:26.889 off his ass coot and, quite frankly, found it enticing. Not Now, 75 00:07:27.009 --> 00:07:30.879 Daphney, we've got a case to solve. Fred gently pushed her away. 76 00:07:30.879 --> 00:07:33.800 We know whatever we do, Velma is going to solve the case, 77 00:07:34.279 --> 00:07:40.839 so why not take the opportunity while the gang is away? Her eyes peeked 78 00:07:40.839 --> 00:07:46.430 up from beneath her red haired Bangs, Daphne. Fred lightly protested as Daphney's 79 00:07:46.470 --> 00:07:50.910 hand undid his belt. What if we get caught? His hands reached up 80 00:07:50.910 --> 00:07:57.949 into her sweater. Oh, Fred, Fred, Fred. Daphne's eyes grew 81 00:07:57.949 --> 00:08:01.259 wide as Fred's neck exploded with a gush of blood and a large horn figure 82 00:08:01.259 --> 00:08:05.980 stood behind him, pulling out an even larger knife from Fred's throat. Daphne 83 00:08:07.100 --> 00:08:09.379 screamed as the blood covered her face. She turned and Ran, only to 84 00:08:09.500 --> 00:08:13.810 slip on a slick puddle of blood that surrounded her. She fell down hard 85 00:08:13.930 --> 00:08:18.730 and fast and began to slip in slide as she tried crawling away from the 86 00:08:18.769 --> 00:08:24.129 large figure that quickly approached her, knife overhead, coming down and striking directly 87 00:08:24.250 --> 00:08:28.439 through the back of her head, knife tip scraping the sidewalk on the other 88 00:08:28.480 --> 00:08:33.519 side. Did you hear that? Scoops Shaggy excelled through the large puffs of 89 00:08:33.600 --> 00:08:39.399 scooby snacks brand pop. Scoops Shaggy looked around and can see scooby dooo running 90 00:08:39.440 --> 00:08:43.669 off in the distance as fast as he could. I guess you did. 91 00:08:43.389 --> 00:08:50.509 Shaggy shook his scrappy hair do and began to follow after scooby. I don't 92 00:08:50.509 --> 00:08:54.830 know about you, but this place is creepy as fuck. Shaggy spoke to 93 00:08:54.950 --> 00:08:58.779 nothingness. I hate that we always get stuck doing scary shit. I mean, 94 00:08:58.820 --> 00:09:03.100 I would rather smoke out, eat pizza, hows some fun and with 95 00:09:03.259 --> 00:09:07.860 the honey's and and you know, not be out of this ever approaching darkness 96 00:09:07.860 --> 00:09:13.169 that will consume my soul. Shaggy took another hit off the joint and, 97 00:09:13.330 --> 00:09:16.210 besides, Donald was going to solve this, she always does. I'm sure 98 00:09:16.289 --> 00:09:20.289 the wind go is just a man in a crappy costume, just like yours, 99 00:09:20.610 --> 00:09:24.440 Shaggy said to the figure standing in front of him. I mean, 100 00:09:24.000 --> 00:09:28.399 sure, this place looks like it's one cell away from becoming a Halloween superstore, 101 00:09:28.759 --> 00:09:33.279 but that doesn't mean you have to buy a costume from them. Shaggy 102 00:09:33.360 --> 00:09:37.399 continued talking to the shape that loomed next to him, wearing long robes and 103 00:09:37.480 --> 00:09:41.909 a horned mask. I mean seriously, the figure stopped, shook his head 104 00:09:41.909 --> 00:09:46.350 in disbelief as shaggy walked onward. I mean, you could be this window 105 00:09:46.389 --> 00:09:52.149 go or just a figment of my imagination. I mean, how we could 106 00:09:52.149 --> 00:09:56.820 all just be the figment of someone's imagination and not even be like real real 107 00:09:56.620 --> 00:10:01.820 shaggy stopped and looked down at the joint. WHOA, that's a deep need 108 00:10:03.019 --> 00:10:05.740 cut back on this shit. He stopped as a large knife shot through his 109 00:10:05.820 --> 00:10:11.490 chest, his heart on the other end beating slowly as shaggy's body went whimp. 110 00:10:11.570 --> 00:10:16.649 Velma sat in the front seat of the van listening to Melissa Ethridge on 111 00:10:16.690 --> 00:10:20.639 the Stereo. Par paring out into the ever growing darkness, a dark horned 112 00:10:20.679 --> 00:10:26.960 figure appeared from the mist and stood just outside the van. Vilma's eyes grew 113 00:10:26.000 --> 00:10:31.080 wide. In its hand it held a phone and brought it up to its 114 00:10:31.159 --> 00:10:37.590 ear. Velma's phone rang and she answered. Is it done, she asked. 115 00:10:37.590 --> 00:10:41.830 A deep voice on the other end spoke good. Thank you for that, 116 00:10:43.590 --> 00:10:46.789 she smiled. How about the dog? The voice on the other end 117 00:10:46.870 --> 00:10:52.740 responded, no worries, he's a dog and I'm sure no one but shaggy 118 00:10:52.779 --> 00:10:56.659 could understand him. The voice said something in Velma paused. Well, I'm 119 00:10:56.700 --> 00:11:01.059 glad that I could help. I knew once we got the call from Dana, 120 00:11:01.100 --> 00:11:03.409 I had to call you. The others knew too much, so that 121 00:11:03.649 --> 00:11:09.769 problem is now soft. But Dana will call again, the voice interrupted. 122 00:11:09.289 --> 00:11:13.049 Vilma paused. Well, I'm I'm glad you will take care of him. 123 00:11:13.529 --> 00:11:18.000 My business here is done, Thelma asked. The voice on the other end 124 00:11:18.039 --> 00:11:24.200 answered. Good, good, Tell Jessica that I will meet her at Lucky's 125 00:11:24.279 --> 00:11:28.360 on Friday. She can pay me then, the voice confirmed and then made 126 00:11:28.399 --> 00:11:31.399 a joke, to which Velma laughed. Right, she can pay me that 127 00:11:31.559 --> 00:11:35.830 way too. And with that the horn figure to vanished into the mist, 128 00:11:35.909 --> 00:11:39.029 as Velma turned the ignition on and turn the music up and sped away from 129 00:11:39.029 --> 00:11:43.429 the compound, singing at the top of her lungs. Well, I'm the 130 00:11:43.669 --> 00:11:58.100 only won't dude, walk across the file for you. I am so absolutely 131 00:11:58.139 --> 00:12:01.210 confused as to the things you have said. Well, if you have questions, 132 00:12:01.450 --> 00:12:09.049 you may ask. After all, we did just fast forward through a 133 00:12:09.129 --> 00:12:15.570 nice threehour monolog here. So Richard and Kelly are dead. Yes, and 134 00:12:15.840 --> 00:12:22.120 you killed them. We left that open ended. And where is Dana? 135 00:12:24.039 --> 00:12:28.159 Hello, would you like a coffee? That is certainly not Dana. Yes, 136 00:12:28.320 --> 00:12:35.990 Dana, thank you. That would be lovely. I know it was 137 00:12:37.110 --> 00:12:41.789 his first attempt, and you don't me knows how to fetch coffee in lead 138 00:12:41.950 --> 00:12:46.700 people into this room. So where is Dana Now, the Real Dana? 139 00:12:48.059 --> 00:12:54.259 Oh, he went back to I our weeks ago. Right now he's probably 140 00:12:54.580 --> 00:12:58.850 hooking up the bolt one, as you call him, to transmit some of 141 00:12:58.009 --> 00:13:07.450 that lovely poetry you love so much. Let's listen, shall you? Hello, 142 00:13:07.649 --> 00:13:18.360 there, the angel from my nightmare, the shadow in the background of 143 00:13:18.480 --> 00:13:30.669 the morgue, the unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley. We can live 144 00:13:31.230 --> 00:13:39.029 like Jack and Sally if you want. You can always find me and will 145 00:13:39.149 --> 00:13:48.460 have Halloween and Christmas and in the night. Will wish this never ends. 146 00:13:50.220 --> 00:14:01.730 Will wish this never ends. Miss you. Where are you? And I'm 147 00:14:01.330 --> 00:14:11.759 so sorry. I cannot sleep, I cannot dream tonight. I need someone. 148 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:24.309 And always this sick, strange darkness comes creeping on, so haunting every 149 00:14:24.070 --> 00:14:35.909 time. And as I stared, I counted the webs from all the spiders 150 00:14:37.389 --> 00:14:48.100 catching things and eating their insides, like indecision. To call you and hear 151 00:14:48.259 --> 00:14:58.409 Your Voice of treason. Will you come home and stop at this pain tonight? 152 00:15:01.850 --> 00:15:11.000 Stop this pain tonight. Don't waste your time on me. You are 153 00:15:11.080 --> 00:15:26.149 already the voice inside my head and miss you. Don't waste your time on 154 00:15:26.350 --> 00:15:37.139 me. You are already the voice inside my ed and I miss you. 155 00:15:41.340 --> 00:15:56.250 I miss you. So do you have any more questions? So, how 156 00:15:56.330 --> 00:16:07.000 many of these stupid robots has Dana Mate? That's hard to say. The 157 00:16:07.240 --> 00:16:15.200 list of actual humans is uch easier to die chest. I think Ariel and 158 00:16:15.360 --> 00:16:22.470 bridge Jordan, obviously not the bold one. Yes, that's about it. 159 00:16:25.230 --> 00:16:34.539 The two kids. Do you know me and him?
