whathappenedtomelanieking: yeah

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: anyway it sucked when Andy left but we had Melanie and that was fine

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: then she kept saying one of their camera people left then their sound until it was like melanie was the only one left

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: no we are not doing this shit again

 

imbeggingforausername: what is happening? Why’d you change your name?

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: Melanie’s back!!! (sort of)

 

imbeggingforausername: what

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: don’t ask

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: you ever heard of Ghost Hunk U.K.

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: @imnotjusthomointhesapienway rude

 

imbeggingforausername: not really… i know it went downhill in like 2016 tho

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: 😝

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: long story, ghosthunting show, melanie went off the rails and the grid for like a year (she was a host btw), and got arrested for breaking into a dump

 

imbeggingforausername: yikes

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: so what new incredible details have you uncovered now? ( @imbeggingforausername this happens like every couple months when Jay thinks they have some new revelation).

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: HOW DARe!

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: anyway i was stalking her twitter and she was like posting stuff about being in India and shit and get this. She got shot!

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: let me guess. By a ghost

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: YES!!!

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: fucking...

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: Not even the best part… she’s back in London and you’ll never guess where she’s working now.

 

ijustworkhear: where

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: ayyyy!!! Sam’s here! help me

 

ijustworkhear: <3 

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: The Magnus Institute

 

ijustworkhear: k… cool

whathappenedtomelanieking: omg guys you don’t know what the Magnus INstitute is?

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: how are you my FRIENDS?

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: *sigh* tell us

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: they collect supernatural statements and “look into them” i don't generally believe them, but you gotta pay the bills somehow i guess

 

imbeggingforausername: thought you believed in the supernatural

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: yeah, ghosts. The Magnus Institute pretends that there’s like evil books and stuff

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: and Melanie’s working there now? She has cracked

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: no kidding

 

ijustworkhear: maybe its for the best

 

imbeggingforausername: might be good for her

 

ijustworkhear: jinx!

 

imbeggingforausername: <3 i don’t know how to tell you this, but no

 

February 3, 2018

imbeggingforausername: @whathappenedtomelanieking

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: i’ve been summoned

 

imbeggingforausername: You see what’s been up with Melanie King lately?

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: no… what’s going on?

 

imbeggingforausername: all these vagueposts about how much she wants to kill her boss, which like, mood but im worried shes serious

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: do tell

 

imbeggingforausername: she’s like “my boss is trapping me and all these people into working at the archives”

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: dude… really?

 

imbeggingforausername: really

 

imbeggingforausername: i thought it was funny at first, but… you know… you can only read so many posts about what eldritch horrors someone thinks is attacking them before you start to worry.

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: i’ve been looking into the institute since Melanie joined, i was curios

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: their last head archivist was found in the tunnels beneath the institute shot three times and their latest archivist is on the run from the police for beating an old man to death with a pipe and probablt killing one of his assistants

 

imbeggingforausername: wtf

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: and they got this real bad worm infestation a while back, apparently it freaked one of them out so bad they lived in the archives for like 6 months

 

imbeggingforausername: How do you know this?

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: talked to the receptionist, her name’s Rosie, she’s very nice

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: she’s seen some weird shit. I think i might have seen Melanie but i didn’t talk to her

 

imbeggingforausername: I forget you live in London, any other weird things?

 

whathappenedtomelanie: don’t know how much is real, but yeah. 

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: she thinks some lady can control worms, there was this weird tall guy in Jon (that’s the archivist guy)’s office at one point and she never saw him leave (same with the lady giving Jon a statement), 

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: oh and Rosie didn’t tell me this one, but the head of the institute, can’t remember his name, came out of his office at one point and just stared at me

 

imbeggingforausername: creepy

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: ikr?

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: i left like right after that. I did ask if i could look in the archives, but no, you need some kind of degree or something

 

imbeggingforausername: a degree???? Are they serious???

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: they looked it, 🤷 i wasn’t going to push my luck, the old guy really freaked me out. It was like he looking into me

 

imbeggingforausername: what kind of degree would you even need??

 

imbeggingforausername: ooh weird

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: just saying, don’t think I’ll be going back for a while

 

imbeggingforausername: probably smart

 

October 25, 2018

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: @whathappenedtomelanieking i’m blaming you for getting me interested in this… but all your talking and theorizing about the Magnus Institute has gotten me interested

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: ooh, in listening

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: *I’m

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: I went up and talked to Rosie too (you were right she is v. nice) the head of the institute got arrested and the archivist is in a coma 

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: jesus, i feel like we’re uncovering a conspiracy just by being worried about an entertainer we enjoy… Maybe we should leave this alone?

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: i’m kind of getting that too

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: what about melanie tho?

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: idk, I asked Rosie about her and she just glanced around and then shook her head

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: i’ve been asking around on some forums and stuff, even emailed one of her old cameramen seems no one’s heard from her in upwards of a year and she’s barely been seen outside the institute

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: um…

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: genuinely getting worried, but… it’s her life i guess? idk...

 

October 20, 2019

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: WE WERE NOT WORRIED ENOUGH ABOUT MELANIE!!!!!!

 

ijustworkhear: what happened???

imbeggingforausername: wtf

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: did she kill someone or smth

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: I WAS JUST LISTENING TO WHAT THE GHOST AND GEORIGE MENTIONED MELANIE OFFHAND. I KNOW THEY HANG OUT SOMETIMES SO I CHECKED GEORGIE’S INSTAGRAM AND MELANIE WAS IN ONE OF THE PICTURES (they’re a couple btw, v. cute) SHE WAS BLIND!!!! LIKE PROPERLY!! IT LOOKED LIKE SHE’D BEEN STABBED IN BOTH EYES!!!

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: jesus wtf

 

ijustworkhear: omg, she’s okay though

 

imbeggingforausername: damn…

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: i mean… she’s blind… probably not having a great time, but she looks happy

 

imbeggingforausername: 🤷 it’s not like she died

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: i’m not saying its bad she’s blind Erin, just that i’m worried about how it happened. 

 

whathappenedtomelanieking: she was working at that fucking weird institute (you know, ever since i went there i have this feeling like i’m being watched constantly)

 

imnotjusthomointhesapienway: yikes
