Also known as [[ LIS_DEAD]]

A semi-[[AlternateRealityGame ARG]]/interactive blog that follows the investigation of a secret agent known as Dramatic Detective. Most posts on the blog itself are fairly small, serving only to set up puzzles that unlock the real story behind everything. The puzzles can range from easy pop culture references, to maddening, to {{Tetris}}.

Anything contained in the puzzle-locked docs and not the blog itself should probably be spoilered. Further spoilers can be found at the [[ Unfiction thread]]

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: As part of their TrainingFromHell, Agents are [[spoiler: shaped right down to what kind of personality they have by behavioral conditioning.]] But Dramatic Detective at least does ''not'' entirely seem to like it.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: The Organization is not a very nice place by the sound of things. And it raises its Agents from the moment they're born.]]

* ParanormalInvestigation: 'He' is reported to have some sort of powers [[spoiler: including at least mind control and either precognition or outright [[RealityWarper reality warping]]]] but whether they're supernatural or something else [[spoiler: or even His fault entirely]] are still questions.
* PlayfulHacker: Mysterious Mr. M made the Tetris puzzle and is responsible for the site's security[[spoiler:,he's also the best hacker in the organization,]] and yet he doesn't seem to be above giving a little snark.
* TrainingFromHell: Agents of the Organization are [[spoiler: taken in as soon as they're born, trained through behavioral conditioning to have a certain type of personality, given all sorts of Machiavellian ideals and methods, and then pitted in competition against ''each other.'']]
