The Bloggers of Lovefest 2017 – Part II

-BEGIN FILM REEL-

*lighting crashes outside the window of a darkened room, and with a creak of a swivel chair, David Littman clicks on a large flashlight, illuminating the underside of his chin*

Steel yourselves, my friends, as yet more brave souls volunteer to explore the horrors beneath Innsmouth!

First we have Miss Bebel Kharis, an artist who enjoys to capture the human form. But as you may soon find in her photo album that is she who is the one being captured...by forms that defy any definition of ‘human’…

*lightning crash!*

Next we Miss Karessa Karas, who is no stranger to Virtual Nightmares. But be careful Miss Karas, for the images you’ll capture will transcend any nightmares you’ve ever faced before!

*wolves howl outside!*

Bienvenidos a Innsmouth, Senorita Irene! Quien sabe lo que encontrarás en las aguas profundas y oscuras?

Ah, Miss Ren, I see by your picture that you’ve already been to our pier! May your photo album capture your final…hmm…I might save this one for later…

Oh now where was I? Oh yes…Mister Fitzhugh Nicely. You seem to have gone a series of interesting adventures, but good Sir when your bald head gets swallowed by…”

*CLICK!*

“SIMONE?!? I’m trying to write a blog post here!”

“What the hell are you complaining about? I just got back from the deli! Do you have any idea how hard it is to find decent pastrami in Innsmouth?”

*gasp!* “Simone! THAT’S…NOT…PASTRAMI!!!”

*SCREAMS!*

-FILM BREAKS OFF REEL-

The Bloggers of Lovefest 2017 – Part I

Hi, David Littman here.

The following brave and foolhardy individuals have sacrificed their time, effort, creativity, and possibly sanity to spread the word about the sublime madness that is Lovefest 2017. More victims may be added to this list we get closer to the stars aligning.

Fauve Aeon runs the clockwork contraption called the Fauve Æon [N°2], Babbage Aetheric Reader. You can find her hit bits and bobs and machinations here.

Red Pralou brings her occult sciences to the investigation as The Willy Nilly Witch.

Aerlinniel Vella follows close behind with Aerlinniels Wolftracks. Her evidence is logged in this file.

EloenMaerdrym Resident emerges from the safety of Eloen’s Other World to confront the horrors of Innsmouth. Her photographic record will serve as her testament to the struggle.

No stranger to the darkness herself, Neylinn bravely plunges Into the Depths. Her underwater camera will hopefully float to the surface, even in the event that she doesn’t.
