Great find. It's good that we have a new fictional, even if it's one we didn't expect to find.

(I may as well give up on sleeping now, missing stuff like this)

I'm really excited this is Frankenstein's monster. Frankenstein is the one book represented in this ARG that I actually read all the way through, so I feel really in my element with this guy. And everything I've read in his blog so far seems to fit with the character, so I agree with this analysis.

I really don't think he's cabal, not that I don't think he would sympathize with their cause, because obviously he would have no reason to want to return, but his personality simply doesn't match any of the cabal members. Pyramus is confirmed to be a lady's man, and Adam could barely get one woman to talk with him. Everyone else is simply too confident to be Adam. I'm fairly certain he's non-cabal.

As for how to interact with him, it may be best that we don't bombard him with too many comments at once. He seems very timid and may not be comfortable with too much attention. So maybe we stick with just the two that have already commented, and maybe let that number grow gradually through time.


I agree, looking at it now perhaps he wasnt a Cabal member at all and him handing a CV to the witch was just... sheer coinscidence.
We're still thinking on that alternative to sending them back plan, right?

Of course we are. I still suggest being cautious about this, however.

I love this character, and I'm SO glad he's the one from the book. Gotta love that Milton-speak! :D I hope he becomes a force for good here, without his father around to screw things up.


Oh, and I have a guess now about that creepy skeleton faced guy in the comic. I think it's dear old Adam hisself. 8-)

Yea, I'd rather have the book one around myself. Though to be honest, he never really helped his own situation in the story. Sure, he tried to for a while at first, but after that he became a little nuts. It was never all Frankenstien's fault. They were both really responsible for how things turned out. It was one of those things where if the characters sat down and talked it out, it all would have ended better.

Yes, exactly, I just feel that the book-monster was extremely sympathetic. In a lot of ways, he was an allegory for mankind, so we're supposed to feel that way. But yeah, he did kinda go overboard, didn't he? WoobieDestroyerofWorlds.

Not to justify it, but he was pushed over the edge... He didn't get a real chance to try to be good. When you Break a Woobie, and that Woobie is also capable of inflicting lots of pain... Well, I kinda wanted him to murder each and every other human on the book.

Doubt it. No evidence of that so far, so no point thinking about it.

He already turned down the idea of therapy, so trying it again would kind of be pointless. Maybe with some time he may be at a point where he might consider it, though he may not be willing to travel all the way to Boston just for therapy. There are probably good enough therapists for him in Chicago. But who knows where there stories may lead them later on? They may be brought together on their own, or some special reason may pop up that may cause us to bring them together, but for the time being, I see no reason to want to bring them together.
If everyone would just agree with me, there would never be any problems.

He had one, but he didn't like the character limits, so he quit it.

He claims to have deleted his Twitter account because he wasn't good at pithy statements.

yeah, I read that, but in his posts he says that he had one, so...
I should have read the entire blog before asking.

I'm trying to compose a What We Know for Adam, and I'm wondering - have we figured out where, geographically, he's located? I can't find it in the blog, but I'm not sure if that's because he hasn't said, or because I'm skipping over it.

What We Know is up; given my reading comprehension level at the moment, though, I almost certainly missed something. Please tell me if I did.

OK, I thought we made this clear that we wouldn't swamp him with comments right off. You guys phrased it OK, though, and had some interesting ideas, so I think we should be OK. Could you warn us next time?

New post!
And he gave us a page from his script!
Clearly there's something we should be commenting on about this-- can anyone who's read Frankenstein confirm/deny here if there's any similar language?
I want to comment that it puts me in mind of Phantom of the Opera, but before I do-- anyone thinks that's a bad idea?

Also, is it just me, or is his cat also polydactyl? Should I ask that (and suggest the cat-nickname Mary, for laughs)?
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?
