Fan Fic: Redaction Of The Golden Witch
What happened on Rokkenjima on October 4th and 5th, 1986?
The tragedy that unfolded on that island has invited a great deal of speculation. After the discovery of two novellas that claimed to be accounts of the events — stories supposedly found in message bottles cast to the sea, stories filled with magic and mystery — the incident attracted even more attention and curiousity, and the 'Witch Hunter' fandom exploded.
Many Forgeries were created by those out to capitalize on this growing fandom. While many were quickly proven to be completely fake, a select few won acclaim and have grown just as famous as the original tales.
This is not about one of those stories.
One particular Forgery fell into obscurity soon after its release. While obviously a fake due to the fact it was released in English, that wasn't the only reason for its rejection by the Witch Hunt community at large. Instead of following the familiar formula, this particular Forgery forwent many of of the classic trappings, including introducing a mysterious new antagonist in place of the Golden Witch.
One analysist believes he has uncovered why. In 1996, another incident occured on Rokkenjiima when a group of Witch Hunters snuck onto the island. While this incident has fallen into obscurity, believed by many to be some kind of group suicide or simple accident, Walter Absalom presents an alternate theory: somebody got away with murder. And this particular Forgery serves as a stealthy confession.Witch Hunters Abroad
