Original article, Saturday Sept 22:
Clara was back in Maddison chat this evening.
If she wants help she can write her own story on what happened.
EDIT by QtheC: (since there seemed to be some interest, and Clara has not provided a summary of her own yet...)
I believe this is the first time anyone has heard from Clara (at least in chat) in several weeks.
I happened to be in chat for some of it, but had to leave before the end. I didn't log it, but assumed someone would.
There was some discussion introduced by some users about Dr. T (aka ihavebeenimpure), tuesdayschild, and their nephew Lorne and people requesting Clara's opinion about them, but nothing conclusive there. (OOG, there has been debate about this tuesdayschild ARG as to whether it is gamejacking, but interesting, etc., and a new chat room set up #raplowly)
I typed Mr. T instead of Dr. T by mistake, and made a joke relating Mr. T's haircut to greggallow's and saying "I pity the fool that lives in Nacogdoches." ... but I digress... ;)
Several in #maddison chat were asking Clara questions, trying to push forward on past mysteries (such as questions raised by Dr. T and others) and I know that a video by Zoey (I think)(Edited by GG: It was Ziola Mistress of the crayons idea ) was pointed out to her that asked her to provide contact info for people in Nacogdoches for folks here to start using to investigate - she was not enthusiastic about that idea (sharing other's private info to relative strangers on the internet).
Early on, there was mention of some Adam Lamar editorial in the PineLog, and Clara saying the paper wasn't very good ... not sure of the details about that, but something others could check out perhaps.
Clara talked about continuing to have nightmares, and seemed upset, even cursing at modelmotion (when politely asked whether she still planned to graduate), saying people in chat were either joking around or didn't really care about her, but only "their precious Maddison" ... but also saying perhaps a few people really cared about her. She said Frady was dead, end of story, etc. To this, someone brought up the theft of video tapes from Clara's trunk, saying it could not have been Frady (I'm not sure myself whether it could have been or not - something to check in the timeline of events.)
But it seemed clear that Clara came to the chat room for a reason, even if she was not forthcoming or able to express it directly.
This all resulted in the usual offers to help, some frustration by players over how to engage with the story to move it forward to get some answers, and with some rude joking from one or two sprinkled in. There was also some random stuff like ApotheosisAZ asking Clara what her favorite drink was, and Clara answering Dr. Pepper, saying later she was from Hewitt TX (near Waco), home of the Dr. Pepper Historical Museum (not important, just a detail I happened to remember).
Again, I had to leave the chat before it ended, so if anything interesting happened late in chat, please post a comment.
