Firefly Cover Reveal

Firefly Coming Winter 2022

My name is Rachel, and I work for the Gentleman.

The Gentleman has an interest in the paranormal, the unexplained and the bizarre. He uses his influence and power to investigate strange events and collect evidence. His collection is comprised of this evidence, as well as files and reports of the events.

My job is to build files, take deliveries and keep the place free from dust and mold.

Building files involves taking all the information and evidence the Gentleman has delivered to my door, and collating and annotating it to tell the story of what happened. Sometimes, when the Gentleman has got enough evidence, I can tell an entire story.

Two months ago, I took deliveries for an event we’re calling Firefly. It’s a very detailed case, and there’s enough evidence of a threat to warrant people being warned. This is a copy of the complete Archive report.

It all started when seven-year-old Simon Thompson vanished.

The email reveals that Bree was hurt by the writer in some fashion, and many suspect this was intentional though the writer denies this.

The writer then goes on to refer to a time in the 8th grade, when they were nervous before a competition and so went online where they googled themselves. They found a wiki page about themselves. This wiki page revealed that they would win the competition the next day. This came to pass. The email continues stating that this happened many more times. The wiki page effectively told the future.
