Soon Sandra becomes one with the group, who have all given each other nicknames (Sandra is christened "Jumpy" for her raw nerves and excessive fear), and they make a plan for escape. But Sandra's mind begins to fall into insanity through a kind of [[MindRape mind-damaging effect of Camp Moric's Grounds]] called the "Red Dementia" That only Taras Jacobs is immune to, and soon strange creatures called [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Rake "Rakes"]] begin to skulk around camp at night, leaving Sandra and her cabin-mates with either escape or certain death on their hands.

* AbandonedMine: The Mines of Camp Moric's Black Desert are too extensive to have just been made by Teenage girls. In fact, because of the bizarre clawmarks and petroglyphs it's implied the mine's creatures [[NightmareFuel weren't human beings.........]]

* TheFearMythos: TheRake is a type of creature prowling Camp Moric during its sub-freezing nights, apparently with ill intent, as [[spoiler:a girl has been slaughtered after trying to run away, evidently by the Rake's metal claws]].

Added DiffLines:

** Sandra sees Taras and Yuma as this, respectively. Taras Jacobs is a violent, sarcastic sadist who lives only to kill, takes no responsibility for anyone other than herself, and doesn't feel any compassion for anyone who dies over the course of the "Red Dementia" serial [[spoiler: with one exception]]. Yuma, on the other hand, tortures for the fun of it, wants to skin and disembowel and bisect Taras for the fun of it and goes into this detail in front of her, brings up Taras' [[spoiler: only real love, whom ''she'' murdered in cold blood, and turns in Cutter, Sandra and Ghost in exchange for money and freedom from Najis Rakkasiak, who's of course not planning to pay up on the deal as he despises her as much as Taras does]].


Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: Taras and Yuma's escape from "Shadows". It left Yuma with a curved spine and a distinct terror of Chains that [[JerkAss Taras often plays on]], and it may have exacerbated Yuma's Schizophrenia and hatred of Taras. Taras herself ended up with even LESS trust of anyone, a more bloodthirsty disregard for life than before, and serious [[BadassAngster Angst]] over the [[DeadLittleSister loss of someone named 'Xavier']].
