First of all, wow. I didn't think anyone would ever find me here. I intended to try and keep myself to myself, but I'm kinda glad you did find me.

I know this isn't really a private message back to you, but I wanted to get this out in the open so anyone else could see it and glean any information from it.

The day I got back, I did three things.

1) Wrote it all down.

2) Talked to my parents.

3) Tried to find the others on the plane who went down with me.

You're probably not going to believe this, and I'm skipping right to the end of my misadventure here, but I died. I remember dying. I got shot through with several spears. I remember not wanting to die, I remember blacking out. I remember Enjolras and Grantaire with me. We were running away from something. Likely natives. And Grantaire had crashed to the ground, but he hadn't been speared. Enjolras, I remember him turning and heading back to us and nothing else after.

I know I died. I felt myself die. It was a horrible experience and I hope to never go through that again. But I ended up waking back here in my room.

Like I said in another post, there had been others who were with us. Throughout the course of this month, they were all killed. In really weird, messed up ways. So I thought, if I ended up back here, maybe they did too!

I checked around to the other students who I know had been in the tail end.

Know what I found? Nothing. They were still missing, still presumed dead. Apparently I was the only one who ended up back here.

How the hell does that happen? I'm not special. I'd be the first one to tell you that. There were others who had more ambition, more drive, more everything on that plane. I don't know why I ended up back alive here.

I'm kinda surprised that Enjolras and Grantaire HAVE friends. I don't mean that in an offensive way, of course. They were..they were really good to me. Still have the flannel shirt that Enjolras gave me to wear because the nights were horribly cold, and it was Grantaire who tried to save my life right before I died. But they always seemed alone, and the other students either didn't like them (pissing contests) or feared them.

As for where we crashed, there were lots of speculations. Personally, I figured we ended up somewhere more centralized, but we were also told to follow a river after hiking for several days. It was a huge river, and there are only three really big rivers in Africa. I'm guessing it was the Niger.

But because I don't know too much about the location, and because I'm sure the police will have a lot of questions that they'll hate the answers to, I can't really go to them.

Thanks for the info.

They have quite a few friends actually. The others will appreciate this as well.

It's a hard story to swallow. But it's not the first weird thing I've known in my life. I'll buy it.

Were Enjolras and Grantaire unhurt, last you knew?

Also, does the "door" mean anything to you. Actually, screw it. I'm going to copy the weird lines from Enjolras' journal here, and you can tell me if they ring any bells.

The door is open.
The door is open.
Revolution but killing them all.
Found you. (Which linked us to your journal. Just in case you're not freaked out enough yet.)
Take the watch.
Burning. End it.
First to die.
First to return.

And a few other things that I think might relate to some of my pals.

Any idea?

Say it anyway.

We're in straw-grasping territory.

Also, this sort of weirdness isn't Enjolras' style.
And trust me, he's not back in town. We wouldn't be so worked up if he was.

We think it's pretty fucking creepy too.
Anything at all you can link those words to, give it a go!

Right now, I might believe in anything.

What about them?

Yeah, that is pretty nonsensical and weird.

Not that I doubt your story. But I can't make heads or tails of it.

Also, Enjolras is really not all that into the supernatural, or religion, or whatnot. So it's extra freaky to hear you quote him on this stuff.

You lived through it. Is there any sense you can make out of it? Or anything that relates to those posts I sent you?

Well, as Courfeyrac mentioned, we do have some experience with the reincarnation type supernatural weird shit.
So maybe that helps him.

Also, Enjolras is kind of... unshakable.
I think he'd handle most anything like a pro.

So the things that wake up from the blood are on our side? Since they're protecting those two?
And the "angels" or whatnot are more hostile, since they were attacking you all? Except that there's some convoluted rules to it all?

Am I getting that right?

So, what. Does awakened mean possessed by some creepy spirit-power-thing?

And that's what's posting on his account? Without a internet connection?

Fuck it all.
The posts mentioned a slaughter. "Revolution but killing them all."

This is really. bad.

I"m heading over there.

We've died and seen our friends die in some pretty bad ways. I'm not letting them turn Enjolras into some sort of slaughtering revenging angel. Not without his say-so.

Besides, we're the people he'll listen to. If anyone can snap him out of fireball mode, it's going to be us.

We'll make sure to go very prepared, though, and we thank you for that.

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to talk with us.

Enjolras and Grantaire mean a lot to us. We've been through... probably more than even you would believe together. Knowing anything about what's happening with them and where we can go to get them back will make things much easier for us.

Because we will be going to get them back, and we'll be getting them back in one piece. Don't worry. Anything you can tell us about what we might be facing would be appreciated.

And I'm glad that you made it through all right. If you ever need to talk to people about what happened, especially if it's really weird things like dying but not dying, we've all got pretty open minds.

At the risk of making you think that we're all lunatics, we all more or less remember dying multiple times. So far as I know for us it's always been a we remember dying in past lives rather than dying and being teleported somewhere else, but it does make us a bit more open-minded about other possibilities.

Might as well quote him the posts from E's account that I left out, 'Fey, if you're going to tell him all that.

I thought it might throw him off since it's got more bearing on the weirdness of our "normal" lives. But hey, might as well have all the paranormal what-the-fuck in one place. Maybe it has some connection to what's going on with Enjolras and R that we haven't seen.

(Though I really really fucking hope not. Apparently possessed-E-account just quoted Jean P.'s fucking death-speech.)

Yeah we know the feeling. Trusting him, following him, not blaming him for death, etc etc. Been there.

Good thing you did. That's probably what got you through it without breaking some sort of fucked up spirit-rule.

Hunted by what?

"Fearless" is his middle name.

Given the posts, and the "awakening" shit. It sounds like he's angry. And likely possessed by something.

I think there's a certain attachment we have to our last names, anyway.
They've been with us a while.

And we will get them back.

Listening to Enjolras is generally a good idea. He's calm and good at processing information quickly. I've never regretted following him.

So if I'm getting the gist of this Enjolras and Grantaire are angels, bad things happen when they bleed on the ground, and they're being hunted.

All right.

I really wish we had invented teleportation already. Of the non-supernatural kind.

Don't worry about rambling. The more information we get, the better. Who knows when one of the random things that you remember will be useful?

Whatever got to them is going to regret it. That's assuming they survive whatever they've done to Enjolras.

Enjolras tends to be fairly calm. It takes a lot to anger him, and it's generally not a good thing when he gets angry. Grantaire, on the other hand, has no trouble telling people when he thinks they're being idiots. And anyone endangering themselves or mouthing off to Enjolras would very quickly get an "idiot" label.

One would think that angering fireball-throwing angels would not be at the top of anyone's to-do list. It makes me quite curious about these hunters and their stupidity in killing you in front of him.

Dying never has anything to do with how good or not-good you are. If it did Enjolras and the rest of us wouldn't have died as often as we have, or so I'd like to believe. If Enjolras cared enough to get angry when attempting to protect you, believe me, you're good.

My guess, and it's a complete shot in the dark, is that it has something to do with this whole angel business.

When we have more solid theories, I'll make sure to run them by you. But it's news to us as well that Enjolras and Grantaire may be angels. I always knew they were awesome, but supernatural... not really what I expected.

Well, people can be stupid.

You're a good guy, in my estimation. You're helping us with this. And you didn't give E any trouble (which is more than I can say).

And you did end up alive and back here. So you did something right.

Now to get them back as well.
