  • So we survived the research trip!

  • Which we should probably never speak of again.

  • And here is our haul! One gnarly Sumerian book from before time began and..

  • The rescued digital consciousness of one JP Armetos, junior records clerk and Silas student, class of 1874.

  • [plugs a USB into the computer]

  • Say hi to the Internet, JP.

  • Because somebody really did get absorbed into the library catalogue.

  • Although, how he got sucked in, like, a hundred years before the catalogue was digitized

  • We really need to find you a better interface.

  • Anyway,

  • turns out JP has helped us before.

  • Remember the truly stellar search results and timely warnings for us to flee from our last trip to the library?

  • All courtesy of JP.

  • According to JP, there was a rash of disappearances in 1874 as well.

  • And although he didn’t have an electron microscope to suss out the brain parasites,

  • he did get way further along than we did with his research into the luce esurientem

  • or the hungry light

  • and the cult of vampires serving it, AKA the dean’s special council.

  • It even found reference to this special Sumerian tome that’s, uh, supposed to have a section on it.

  • Which is what he was searching for in the subbasement when he got

  • absorbed.

  • Well, wonder librarian

  • better have more than just hungry and eats girls because that pretty much describes everything in this book.

  • No, but there’s gotta be something

  • No. Mm, no. Yuggoth,

  • raised with twelve virgins, burned at the stakeUmKhalos,

  • sprinkled with the blood of

  • virgins.

  • Smeared on the roots of the sacrificial tree

  • Niar Logoth

  • prefers the livers of virgins. Force fed nothing but red wine for 96 days

  • Eugh.

  • Thirteen year old boys have so much more subtlety.

  • Yeah, that’s the problem with horrors from beyond the dawn of time. Their lack of subtlety.

  • Though it is pretty cool that you can read Sumerian.

  • Eh, 1871 was a dull year.

  • I decided to read Gilgamesh.

  • [knock at the door. It’s Perry]

  • Oh, good. Youre all still here.

  • Um, because I saw Laura’s last video about going to the library and I thought I’d just

  • check to make sure you weren’t dead. And youre not.

  • So, that’s fine.

  • [Perry leaves]

  • Shell come around. Youll see. ‘Cause

  • youre awesome

  • and we would literally be nowhere without you.

  • You know that, right?

  • Thanks.

  • Come on, JP.

  • Let’s you and I hit my homunclid anatomy course and see if we can figure out anything about these parasites.

  • Great. And we will keep reading the giant Sumerian tome of do not want.

  • [LaFontaine leaves]

  • So,

  • thanks, by the way for coming with us to the library.

  • I thought we were never speaking of that again.

  • Yeah.

  • [chuckles nervously]

  • You came alongcause you wanna know what happened to her, didn’t you?

  • Cause youre hoping that you can save her somehow?

  • Don’t start expecting heroic vampire crap from me, cupcake.

  • If I know better than to mess with my mother,

  • I sure as hell know better than to spit in the eye of something old enough to think it’s a god.

  • Besides, the wench is dead.

  • So are you.

  • Doesn’t seem to be putting a dent in your social life.

  • Besides,

  • if you want me to stop having heroic notions about you, you should probably stop saving my life.

  • Then who would buy the cupcakes?

  • [The next morning]

  • There is just nothing like a good night’s sleep. Right, sleepyhead?

  • No.

  • I mean, I did dream about that weird black cat thing again, but I think that’s just my subconscious being weird.

  • This morning, after a long night of fruitless research, it is more fruitless research.

  • [Carmilla sighs]

  • This time for my final Lit paper, on which I am woefully behind.

  • If anyone had told me before college that fighting evil required this much paperwork, I would not have believed them.

  • [Perry enters]

  • Where is she?

  • Because if she thinks this is some kind of joke, that she’s trying to teach me a lesson,

  • it is in such incredibly bad taste.

  • Where is who now?

  • Susan. Uh, LaFontaine.

  • And I know that she’s mad at me, but that is just no excuse for all this.

  • LaFontaine isn’t here.

  • What? No.

  • No. She has to be. It has to be a joke.

  • What has to be a joke?

  • Her room was a mess and this was stapled to the door.

  • [Laura reads the note]

  • Dear student: your nosy little friend no longer attends Silas University because

  • (A)

  • she meddled in things that were none of her business (B)

  • did you really think we wouldn’t find out what you were up to (C)

  • we are ancient and terrible (D)

  • none of you are safe; well take anyone we want.

  • Exit procedures have commenced; no action on your part is required.

So we survived the research trip!
