    Days 1 - 5 

DAY 1: Already Missing Home

  • Conditions: None.
  • Starting page: 1
  • Starting date: October 18, 2015
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • The characters suddenly find themselves transported into the City, then make their way to the library, which functions as a fixed point at the center of the city.
    • The librarian, Miss Tairee, explains that she is working for the entity that is behind the whole affair, and gives some information regarding the City.
    • A terrified peasant describes a "demon" killing people around the city. Several characters set out to stop the monster's rampage.
    • The hunting party finds the "demon", which turns out to be an Ultramarine, Brother Marcus, obsessed with killing "xenos". A short battle occurs, ended by Legion who kills the Ultramarine with a headshot, but also accidentally hurts Ben, making Legion depressed for a short while.
    • Other characters remain in the library and do some research, but find little of note.
    • Rick and Plague Knight set up makeshift laboratories for themselves in empty buildings.

DAY 2: Baptism of Thorns

  • Conditions: The entire city becomes a jungle. All plants are carnivorous or otherwise aggressive. All buildings are now made of wood and connected with walkways. A network of crevices beneath the jungle is free of plants, but full of giant bugs. There is also raining wet paper.
  • Starting page: 18
  • Starting date: October 30, 2015
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • Rick expresses a desire to acquire a giant bug alive for experimentation, then gives Morty and Mary stun guns.
    • Rex tries to capture a bug for Rick, but ends up pulled down into the crevices and has to fight his way out with others' help. He manages to get a live bug up to Rick, who studies it but finds nothing helpful.
    • Plague Knight creates a defoliant in his lab to get past the plants, but while it works well, it ends up pissing off the plant life.
    • Plague Knight and Agarth run into Braston (the peasant from before) and Silnae (an elf woman who was killed the previous day by the marine.) They realize that if Silnae came back to life, then the marine possibly did as well.
    • Rick puts some electronic components into the bug and flies off on it along with Morty. Their flight ends as they crash on a walkway near Plague Knight and Agarth.
    • Ben and Alice have an argument about maturity, then they proceed to have a friendly duel.
    • Alad V, Lune, and Sadness appear in the library. Sadness and Mary ally up almost immediately.
    • Ben and Lune scout out the city and end up accidentally provoking the wrath of this day's bosses, Queen Bee and Plantera.
    • Most characters proceed to engage the bosses in combat. The monsters are eventually defeated, but Legion is critically damaged and soon dies... and respawns good as new in another part of the city.

DAY 3: Stillness of the Cold

  • Conditions: The city is serene, calm, and cold. Huge glacier cliffs tower over the city on all sides, and it's snowing. Miss Tairee is absent.
  • Starting page: 39
  • Starting date: December 6, 2015
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • Ashe and Undyne end up back in their worlds.
    • Adam tricks Rick in a bid to make him create a heater powered by alcohol. A group of people set off to gain the needed materials. Along the way, Rex and Lune encounter a restaurant and promise to help it out in its time of need. The others find a liquor store, but someone is using it as shelter. The guy lashes out at them for invading his property and is eventually killed by Adam.
    • The weather gets progressively worse. It eventually culminates in large chunks of frozen paper (like hail) falling from the sky, as well as most of the power for the city being knocked out.
    • A large group of playersnote  and NPCs, trapped in the clothing store when the storm starts, brave the blizzard to regroup in the library.
    • Rick builds the heater in his lab. When trying to attract the others to the location of Rick's Lab, Morty gets Brother Marcus's attention. Brother Marcus shields Morty, Lune and Kieri from the hail as he leads them into the lab; he believes Kieri, given her Winged Humanoid appearance, to be a Living Saint. After helping Gon into the lab, Marcus spots a wolf-headed humanoid and tries to kill it. Rick angers Brother Marcus and gets killed by him. Marcus is about to kill Kieri until a new day transition saves her bacon.

DAY 4: A Tale for Fairies

  • Conditions: The city becomes a forest, with trees made up of books. All characters and buildings are transformed to fit a medieval fairy tale aesthetic; characters which already fit the theme are turned into dark, grim versions of themselves.
  • Starting page: 60
  • Starting date: January 10, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • Miss Tairee returns and nearly gets into a fight with angry civilians.
    • Cole arrives in the city and panics upon seeing Sadness, who he mistakes for a demon of despair. They later manage to reconcile when Sadness explains who she is.
    • Fearful of her inhuman nature being found out, Mary freaks out and runs away into the forest, then stabs a woman to death. Sadness, Cole, and Twilight arrive and calm her down.
    • Rex falls off the edge of the city with Brother Marcus. When they respawn, they get into a fight, sparking a battle involving several other characters.
    • After the fight with Brother Marcus, most characters regroup in the library. A giant beanstalk soon grows next to Sadness, Mary, Kouta, and Asgore, causing many characters to head over to investigate.
    • Miss Tairee is kidnapped by a giant two-headed dragon. Some characters try to rescue her, some wait on the forest floor, and some climb the beanstalk and have to fight off creatures called spriggans. Lune and Koishi find a magic sword on the beanstalk and pull it out, drawing the dragon's ire and sparking the true beginning of the boss battle against the dragon Vendral. To raise the stakes, Asgore finds a letter saying that if the boss is defeated before midnight, he will restore the health of those who lost their minds after dying over and over on Day 3.
    • Luckily, at almost the stroke of midnight, Lune, Ben, Rex, Grimlock, Twilight, and Plague Knight manage to kill Vendral, saving the sanity of the city's residents.

DAY 5: A Child at Heart

  • Conditions: No character is able to come to harm. Adult characters' ages are reversed proportionally to be the age of a child (old characters become toddlers, young adults become teenagers, et cetera). Child characters become young adults.
  • Starting page: 95
  • Starting date: February 15, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • The characters awaken in hotels, apartment buildings, or other places with beds, feeling fully rested and noticing their new changes.
    • The characters make their way to the library, where Miss Tairee (now a little girl) explains that they will be staying in the City for 29 days in total.
    • Ben, overwhelmed by the events of the previous few days, has an emotional breakdown. Sans and Twilight Sparkle console him and get him back on his feet. In the process Ben accidentally acquires Twilight's DNA for his Omnitrix, allowing him to transform into a unicorn form which he names Spellicorn.
    • Miss Tairee tells Rex about an attempt to organize a police force, as well as two gangs: the Ruckus, a group of anarchists who simply want to do as they please, and an unnamed group of non-humans who wish to protect themselves from xenophobes such as Brother Marcus.
    • Meanwhile, Ben and Lune go on a friendly get-together at a seafood restaurant. They come across Ruckus thugs egging houses, and on the way back Ben and Rex confront the anti-human protesters.
    • Marcus gives Rex and Plague Knight an ultimatum: if they convince the anti-human group to stop using the crossed out Ultramarine symbol as their emblem, he will consider not attacking innocent non-humans unless provoked.
    • Cole and Sawyer bond.
    • Mary and Sadness, after wandering around the city, come across the new arrival Zelda, and soon afterwards the other new arrivals Sans, Caro, and Fried (the latter three having been traveling together because Sans couldn't resist pranking Caro). While the group talks, Sadness accidentally comes into contact with Sans and almost causes him to have an emotional breakdown. He recovers but leaves Sadness suspicious.
    • In Plague Knight's lab, the miniature plant and bee obtained from Day 2 begin to act up.
    • Many characters arrive in the library in separate groups. Miss Tairee conjures food for them, and they notice it's starting to rain. Eventually the clouds part, and the night sky is revealed to have many stars and other celestial objects added to it as part of a request from Sans.


    Days 6 - 10 

DAY 6: A Good Old Day

  • Conditions: The city and everyone in it turns monochrome and gains cartoonish proportions, as well as the city taking on a 30's-to-50's aesthetic. Everyone follows cartoon physics making it more difficult to die. Self-driving cars drive all over the city and run over anyone trying to cross the street, comically flattening them.
  • Starting page: 127
  • Starting date: March 12, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • The characters notice their changes and are confused at the turns of events.
    • Sans, Caro and Zelda read the plaque on Miss Tairee's desk telling of the day's challenge: they must defeat the king of the day at his own game in order to receive communications in the city. They then ask Lune and Ben to help as well.
    • Ranma, distressed by the day's changes, begins to cry, but encounters Hol Horse, who doesn't trust her. Grimlock arrives and Hol Horse shoots him several times. The bullets go right through leaving comical holes, demonstrating the Rule of Funny nature of the day.
    • Garrett, trying to cross the street, is nearly run over by a car. Bill Cipher tosses a fireball at the oncoming car while Ben (in Stinkfly form), Lune and Zelda attempt to save him. This results in Garrett, Stinkfly, Lune, and Zelda getting hit by a pileup and flying through the library windows, cartoonishly unharmed but dazed. Miss Tairee gets furious with Bill.
    • Stinkfly challenges Bill Cipher to a fight, and quickly pins him to the sidewalk with sticky goo.
    • While his group tries to figure a way across the street, Sans spots two members of the Ruckus on the other side tripping someone into the streets and sending them flying as they were ran over by a car. Peeved, he confronts them by teleporting to the other side and, joined by Caro who catapulted herself to the other side, quickly disposes of the two while Zelda and Lune watch, the former in particular feeling bad for not being able to help. Caro then gets Fried to bring Zelda and Lune to their side and the four have a short discussion about their abilities.
    • Ben manages to cross the street by using a giant slingshot, but flies too far and ends up flying off the edge. When he reappears in the city, he appears nearby a large factory that the Ruckus are using as a hideout, meeting a bird-like being who calls himself Old Feather Beak. Twilight Sparkle finds him soon afterwards.
    • The king of the day turns out to be Mickey Mouse, who has stolen Zelda's harp. Grimlock chases Mickey into the supermarket, where some of the others try to corner him. Some Ruckus members also arrive at the store and try to kill Mickey, with the PCs trying to stop them. It ends with Sans sending Mickey into an aisle of delicious pies, fulfilling the condition of "beating him at his own game".
    • Sadness accidentally triggers a mental breakdown in Silanea, the naga girl and leader of the anti-human faction.
    • After the battle is over, Cole suddenly accuses Ben and Twilight of being possessed by something and tries to attack them. The others stop Cole from attacking, but believe him, and they conclude that Old Feather Beak might have something to do with the duo's condition.
    • Afterwards, most of the characters return to the library in separate groups. Miss Tairee frees Ben and Twilight of their possession and reveals that Old Feather Beak is a Lord of Change, a Greater Daemon of Tzeentch.
    • Mary went along with Old Feather Beak, alone.
    • Sans goes to an electronics store and a supermarket in order to get cellphones and food, respectively, and ends up spending the night at the supermarket writing his journal.

DAY 7: A Dark New Future

  • Conditions: The city is in three sections, one on top of the other. The top layer, which contains the library, is spacious and clean. The middle layer is a little grittier, with a neon punk air about it. The bottom layer supporting the others is the worst of all, and the slums of the city. The layers are held up by giant books.
  • Starting page: 161
  • Starting date: April 17, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • Cole wakes up after a disturbing dream sent to him by the Lord of Change.
    • Mary wakes up in Old Feather Beak's apartment and meets Kelsey, and she gets a new knife.
    • Sans begins distributing cellphones to the other characters and meets up with Cole, taking the opportunity to have a private talk with him.
    • Cole is lured into an alley alongside Sans and is captured and put to sleep by OFB and his agents while Sans is killed in the issuing conflict.
    • Sans calls Ben on the cellphone to inform him and everyone else of what happened to Cole.
    • Sadness gathers Rex, Lune, Caro, and Zelda to try and hunt down Mary, with Sans joining them just before they left.
    • Ben proceeds to get separated from the search group, but comes across Nightwitch, Hol Horse and Ranma
    • The Ruckus members start causing disturbances by firing guns into the air.
    • OFB takes Mary down to where Cole is being held prisoner and tells her to kill him. She complies despite Cole's protests, sparking the beginning of his descent into insanity once he respawns.
    • Garrett warns Sans via phone that Cole has been killed according to the Ruckus members, Sans then attempts to explain the situation to Ben to no avail, but sends Garrett a message saying that they should look out for the boy as he seemed to be in trouble and it could have something to do with Cole.
    • Some of the group manages to get Cole over to Ms. Tairee and she manages to calm him down.
    • Lune, Caro, and Plague Knight encounter Mary in a Bakery with the other Ruckus members. They were forced to leave because they were outnumbered but Plague Knight stayed to keep an eye on them.
    • Xan Kriegor, the boss of the day, showed up and was beaten, giving the citizens access to more food. Although the underpowered members of the group had to run away because of their wounds. Ben, as Upgrade, merged with Rex and then with Grimlock.
    • Sawyer and Sans piss off Tairee by pointing out that she only cares about children, as she doesn't seem to care about Mary joining Old Feather Beak but freaks out when they both consider killing her if necessary. The librarian turned the former into a child and trapped her in an indestructible bubble. At the end of the day, Sawyer left the city.
    • Sadness, Zelda, Twilight, Ben, Rex, Plague Knight, and many others converged on the pastry shop where Mary and Kelsey were. Just before the ordure hit the aerator, the day transitioned.

DAY 8: What is a Man?

  • Conditions: Everyone with opposable thumbs is turned into some kind of creature, be they a regular animal, an alien, or a Pokemon. However, they can still talk and use their powers. People without opposable thumbs become humans with special items instead of their various abilities. Book-golems populate the city, with a tendency to follow the characters around as if they are pets, and there are more pet stores and veterinary clinics than usual.
  • Starting page: 201
  • Starting date: May 18, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • Most characters either respawn or make their way to the library. Mary and Kelsey, however, continue to be in the pastry shop.
    • After Sans suggests Mary is not worth saving, Miss Tairee blows up at him. She leaves, saying she needs some time for herself.
    • Cole thinks that only he can help defeat Old Feather beak and looks for him despite other characters pointing out how stupid that idea is. Ben turns into XLR8 and decides to look for Mary and save her from the Ruckus. Grimlock goes after the kid hero.
    • Dante, Rex, Plague Knight, Lune, Rick, Morty, Shiara & Knuckles set out to look for Cole. They are followed by Lieutenant Wells and part of his force, who wish to protect any civilians caught in the crossfire. Negi and Albert also follow them.
    • The group finds a bunch of porcupines raiding a gun store. Rex confronts them and tries to interrogate them to see if they have seen Cole. Except for Dante, everyone else is shocked by his behaviour and generally agree that he's going a bit too far. Frustrated, Rex destroys part of the guns in the store and flies away from the team. Plague Knight, who can fly during this day, goes after him to continue the scolding.
    • Ben finds Mary, Kelsey, and Old Feather Beak; and promptly tries to snatch the little girl away from them. Kelsey pushes Mary out of the way and fights Ben but the confrontation is stopped by Mary, who says that everyone should be friends with each other. Ben complies for a bit but takes the opportunity to carry Mary to somewhere safe.
    • OFB telekinetically stops Ben from leaving but he's confronted by none other than Marcus, who was turned into a two-headed eagle. The demon group finds Ben running away with Mary. Dante and Rex go help Marcus take down the demon while everyone else goes back to the library.
    • Mary and Sadness finally meet up again. The former has a private chat with Miss Tairee who explains to her why killing people is wrong.
    • The day's boss challenge begins against Red and his entire team of Pokemon, though Red is a Pikachu while all the others have become human.
    • Miss Tairee turns Sadness the blobfish's fish tank into a literal tank, complete with a cannon and an "other mode" that, while never activated, was presumably some sort of mecha. Armed with this, Sadness and Mary go off to join the boss fight, mostly due to Sadness' assumption that the boss fight has something to do with Mary being allowed to become human (which is indeed the day's reward if they succeed).
    • When they go to the boss fight, Old Feather Beak tries to kidnap Sadness. Zelda, Cole, Rex, Rick, and Morty jump to her defense. Zelda then kills Sadness (who respawns in a pet shop with Silanea) in order to prevent her from being taken by OFB. Zelda is horrified by herself.
    • The battle against Red is won, and Mary turns human, but Cole is furious at her for the sacrifices she cost everyone.

DAY 9: The Fall of Society

  • Conditions: The city becomes a wasteland. Everyone is back to normal, but those who can generate food and/or water can no longer do so. There is no working electricity, plumbing, or clean water, and the buildings resemble crumbling ruins. There are also hordes of zombies wandering the city. In addition, the food did not restock, leaving the leftovers from Day 8 (which is mostly pet food).
  • Starting page: 243
  • Starting date: June 13, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • Zelda is still highly distressed by her actions in the previous day.
    • Lieutenant Wells and his men try to fortify the library into a safe zone for the civilian population of the city.
    • Sans, Caro, and Fried, and Cole and Jack, form into two teams to protect everyone else from the zombies.
    • Seiga, Yoshika, and Sophie meet up, and the former two almost immediately attempt to kill the latter before Silanea shows up and interrupts them.
    • A huge sandstorm erupts. Everyone makes a break for shelter. During the sandstorm, the amount of zombies in the city increases drastically.
    • A monstrous horde of zombies (the boss battle) starts swarming towards the library. Lieutenant Wells evacuates all citizens to the upper floors and stations his army, plus most of the player characters, into the north, south, east, or west combat zone. They are later joined by Silanea's anti-human group and Battle Brother Marcus.
    • Ben is angry over Cole telling him that he's not a hero. He leaves the shelter of the library, but his feelings cool down by the end of the day.
    • Karkat is stuck in a brief death loop upon being killed by one of the non-autohit zombies.
    • Kelsey is revealed to have been brainwashed by Old Feather Beak, and she's traumatized by her time under his control. OFB himself shows up to take advantage of the chaos wrought by the zombie invasion.
    • Miss Tairee throws a supersonic invincible book that shatters Old Feather Beak's magic shield and breaks his neck, saving Sans's soul from being absorbed and allowing Eun's energy attack to finish him off, at the cost of disobeying the Writer's order not to get involved.

DAY 10: The Obligatory Filler

  • Conditions: A break day, so like day 5, nobody can be hurt. The city has been transformed into a huge and beautiful beach resort surrounded by a freshwater ocean. There are many restaurants and touristy destinations dotted throughout the city. The balconies are replaced by sand. Inside the resort hotels, where the characters spawn, are swimming suits that would fit them perfectly.
  • Starting page: 281
  • Starting date: July 10, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events
    • Lune is sent a message about the suggestion she placed in the box earlier in the library. The movie theater is going to be a reward for today's challenge (a game of beach volleyball against Yoko Littner and Nia Teppelin), while Lune has to make her own dojo herself.
    • Caro, Sans, and Zelda talk about their problems in their home universes, and reassure one another that they are worthwhile and should strive to make things better in the city.
    • Rex leaves a request in the suggestion box for people to be allowed contact with their home universes. The Author offers to allow people in the city to have one message home every break day under the condition that they accept a longer challenge than usual. Rex decides to ask around before deciding so as to make sure the others are okay with it.
    • Garrett and Ara encounter each other and set out for the library together. On the way they find Lewis harassing Cole for information and quickly defuse the situation.
    • Lt. Wells orders the Militia to start construction of a flying gunboat. Ben expresses suspicion of the project, but Wells shouts him down.
    • Brother Marcus tries to strike Kelsey down, which fails due to break day rules. Sadness interrupts and tries to talk him down. Karkat, annoyed by the commotion, yells at Marcus to shut up, which only makes him angry again.
    • Seiga attempts to teach a host of other characters how to play volleyball. In an attempt to demonstrate, she and Viola challenge Yoko and Nia to a 2 on 2 match. They lose, but Lune and Rex pick up the slack and win. There is now a movie theater in town.
    • Sans, Zelda and Caro go to a grocery store and encounter Cole, Silanea, and Jackson, which escalates into a conflict. However, the rules for today make it impossible for anyone to get harmed.
    • Garrett, Ara, and Lewis meet Jack, Curly, and Sophie at the library. Eun tries to play matchmaker for Ara when a number of people become distracted by Ara's sexy. The group goes out for food together and discovers the Universe Buffet. After dining there, they and Miss Tairee meet at the cinema to watch Rise of the Guardians.
    • Ben tries to impress Yoshika and accidentally releases Ghostfreak, forcing many people to form ghostbusting—I mean ghost hunting parties, each with different plans on how to capture the alien.
    • Miss Tairee runs to the Militia warning them that the new Ruckus leader, called Yael'Torol vas Terminus Est, has requested a book containing a ritual on how to resurrect OFB. No one is happy about this.
    • Yoshika, distraught by the featureless nature of the day's ocean, requests the Author to add more stuff in the next large body of water he makes. He replies with an ominous "Be careful what you wish for."
    • Cole offers to assist the Militia, and is ordered by Wells to find medical practitioners to set up a hospital. He stumbles upon the highly qualified yet greedy troll Dave and offers him an opportunity to hone his skills in exchange for his services. Dave ponders the offer and gets Cole to drink alcohol for the first time.
    • Lune and Yoshika watch The Iron Giant together. Yoshika is saddened.
    • Ben has an emotional breakdown. While Viola tries to torment him further and Karkat storms off, Eve attempts to comfort him by assuring him he can be a hero with or without the Omnitrix. Ghostfreak entertains the idea of having Viola as an ally.
    • Caro and Zelda ask the Author for a way to save Sans's home universe. The Author offers to do so in exchange for one of three conditions: killing Sans, cutting off Sans, or becoming loyal to Ruckus. Neither of the two are mentally capable of any of these, and Sans ends up finding out anyway (thus invalidating two of the choices).
    • Major Q10 becomes Plague Knight's humble servant. Plague Knight is flattered.
    • Ben creates a poster, hoping to recruit people to form a team of heroes who can protect people.
    • A drunken Cole stumbles upon Brother Marcus destroying Ruckus's base, and alerts him of their plan to resurrect OFB. Marcus is royally pissed off.
    • Near the end of the day, Seiga and Viola decide that party set up by Rick is too loud and obnoxious, and conspire to crash it. Seiga pulls it off by injecting a wild alien with drugs, causing it to go on a rampage, and then accidentally ingests some of the same drug herself. She goes on an extended psychedelic trip, and Plague Knight shows up to save her.
    • Karkat runs into the same party, and before he can leave, gets hit in the face by a sopor slime pie. This causes him to get high and do a number of embarrassing things, the most notable being asking Seiga to essentially be his hate girlfriend.

    Days 11 - 15 

DAY 11: The Guaranteed Adventure

  • Conditions: The city has become a small sphere with a surface entirely made of water. The balconies are immobile stone platforms around the circumference of the sphere, and the only buildings are the library and a couple of wooden structures that connect to more advanced mazes and chambers down below. There are a few boats and crude submarines docked at the buildings for anyone to take. Sea and pirate monsters can be spawned by the players, but they're tougher to beat than the zombies on day 9 were. There are book seagulls flying around.
  • Starting page: 338
  • Starting date: August 15, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • Zelda comes up with a plan to befriend all the doomed people in the city, based off the events of the previous day, and asks Miss Tairee to help her. Miss Tairee doesn't give her anybody directly, but suggests starting with the anti-human group.
    • As they try to find a way out of the tunnels, Sans, Caro, and Cole stumble across two Militia members escorting some civilians, one of whom was a former member of Ruckus who killed Cole on Day 6. Cole is triggered and tackles him, which leads into a tense standoff between Sans's group and the militia. Fortunately it's resolved peacefully, although Cole ultimately is arrested.
    • The Ruckus attempted to kidnap people from the balconies. Ben led a charge to stop that. However, there were a few casualties, leading to a few people (Ben and Caro most notably) feeling awful about what they just did.
    • Miss Tairee asks Sir Redring to find the pair of men who play music on radio channel 94 and ask them if they are willing to play news as well. Redring agrees.
    • As part of a break, some of the characters relaxed with a tea party, with some unusual flavors of tea.
    • The Leviathan proved to be the day's boss. Ben-as-Ripjaws lured it to the surface, and then Caro and some of the others lured it to the library with a few pot shots.
    • Zelda starts feeling a little jealous of Sans's and Caro's relationship. This leads to a conversation where Sans helps her get over it and suggests ways for her to improve it. He also learns of Zelda's plan and expresses doubt about it.
    • Ben was knocked unconscious by the leviathan, then kidnapped by Ghostfreak. Fortunately, Rex managed to save him (after dying to the Leviathan himself).
    • With some polite coercion, Viola reveals her true nature and name, Ellen, to Seiga. Seiga promises to keep her and her secret safe.
    • Upon being lured to the Library, the Leviathan proceeds to wreck it. However, Miss Tairee manages to drive it away and restore the library.
    • Ben turned into Cannonbolt and made a huge impact on the Leviathan. He later got thrown off the beast and almost drowned, but was rescued by Eve.
    • Curly found a turret and fired a few torpedoes at the weakspots. That wasn't enough, so Yoshika came up with the idea of staying behind to manually detonate the torpedoes. This, combined with all other damage sustained during the day, finally killed the Leviathan.

DAY 12: The Last Confine

  • Conditions: The city has become a solar system, with the library and various other buildings sitting on small planetoids. Each building is atmospherically-sealed and there is no atmosphere outside of the buildings, with each building equipped with self-replacing spacesuits that fit any size. Various outer-space atmospheric disturbances occur outside the buildings, with a giant sun sitting in the center of the city, all the planets orbiting around it.
  • Starting page: 397
  • Starting date: October 8, 2016
  • New arrivals:
  • Events:
    • Sans has a private talk with Miss Tairee.
    • As a result of his actions on the previous day, Cole is conscripted into the Militia to help them track down Ruckus.
    • Ben, Eve, and John meet up with Rick and Morty in their attempts to get back to the library. Rick offers them a ride, but when he decides to head elsewhere Ben (as Upgrade) takes control of the ship himself.
    • With Cole's help, it's learned that the Ruckus raided Plague Knight's lab and are planning an attack on the grocery store and the prison.
    • When they reach the grocery store, Yael pulls a hostage situation by threatening to blow a hole in the store and kill everyone inside. He also set it up so the Ruckus listened in to all of the walkie-talkie channels, making planning that much more difficult.
    • Sir Redring manages to get the two men playing music to agree to play news as well. He brings this back to Miss Tairee, who sets up a radio system throughout the city.
    • While the heroes and militia attempt to resolve the hostage situation, Yael begins the ritual to revive OFB, having brought the daemon's remains with him. Sans teleports Yael and OFB's remains out of the grocery store, while a fight breaks out in the grocery store between the good guys and Ruckus.
    • The fight in the grocery store ends in success, although some of the Ruckus members manage to get away. However, Yael manages to successfully revive OFB without the ritual by tricking Sans into vaporizing the both of them.
    • As a result, Sans has a breakdown. Fortunately for him, Caro manages to snap him out of it reasonably quickly.
    • Tensions run high in the grocery store between the heroes, the militia, and the anti-humans due to stress and the actions of certain parties involved.
    • Viola, Kelsey, and Miss Tairee have another tea party in the library, in which they discuss the current events and more of the nature of Tairee's boss and reasoning for the city's existence.
    • The grocery store situation is resolved without a fight, and the wounded are brought back to the library to be healed. More arguing and discussion about the current situation ensues.
    • The militia ask Cole to help them determine what OFB is currently doing, which in turn leads them to learning that OFB is angry enough to resort to brute-force tactics. He also attempts to lead Cole into a trap, but Sans puts a stop to it before anything too drastic happens.
    • OFB appears in the library and requests information on every patron therein. Miss Tairee, out of obligation, provides him a book on every universe represented in the library, with the sole exception of Viola's due to her confidentiality agreement.

    • Plague Knight and co. encounter Wander & Sylvia (and Garrett) in a Ferris wheel being attacked by a Xenomorph, which drops down to attack them in turn.

Larry is killed and Eve and Cole are captured, whilst Seiga and Viola escape with Yoshika and Rick, Morty, and Curly bolt off with Lewis. Yoshika, however, having been freed from Seiga's mind control by the day conditions, immediately returns and tries to fight the animatronics as well.
    • The party led by Sans continues to grow in size, meeting Ara, Eun,note  Lucas, Jack, Hobbes, Silanea, and a pair of children named Tommy and Seirwuosuhr (henceforth See). Suspicious of doppelgängers, the party argues who to take and who to leave.
    • Yoshika, unsurprisingly, is effortlessly subdued by the animatronics. However, before they can kill her, Cole, and Eve, the fanboy Calvin note  and Melanie disorient them with their disposable cameras, buying time for the captured pcs to escape.note  Cal and Melanie then reveal to Yoshika that they have obtained pages depicting the animatronics and speculate that the day challenge may be to find more pages like them.

However, they soon discover that it can enter through the vents anyway.
    • Cole encounters Seiga and Viola after fleeing from the animatronics. The group then encounters a fleeing Jackson, and is subsequently pursued by Jason Voorhees.

As a result, Jason uses him to bait a respawned Eve, resulting in both their deaths.
    • Rick, Morty, Curly, and Lewis settle near a tastefully-decorated merry-go-round.

    • The doppelganger—a skinwalker, precisely—reveals itself to the shrimp group. Hobbes snatches See and runs to a public bathroom, pursued by the skinwalker, Jack, Silanea, Arcade, Forrest, Lucas, and eventually Tommy.

    • The group at the balcony is ganged up on by Slender Man and a Weeping Angel, in too close proximity to watch one but not the other. Rick jumps off the balcony into the void, dragging the rest of the party with him. They are teleported into the radio station, where Rick manages to transmit a brief and fragmented message explaining the day challenge.
    • Cal and Melanie distract Jason so that Yoshika can grab his page. Upon finding it Yoshika absconds and encounters Jack and co. They convince her to stay with them instead of looking for more pages, upon which she explains her nature as a jiangshi.

Calvin is killed trying to fight it, while the rest escape to a pool...where it immediately reaches them again. A militia group arrives and comes to their aid, informing them of the day challenge. They then stall the onryo while Seiga collects its page; she falls into the pool afterward, having had to climb for it, but not before throwing the page down to Viola.
    • Cole finds Sans at the shrimp shack. The two then leave and find Caro and Garrett, who had since split from Ben and Rachel.
    • Lewis gives the page of Slender Man to Rick, out of fear of being mind controlled due to having to stare at it during the balcony escape. He then finds a page depicting Leatherface, which Rick takes from him and gives to Morty. No sooner than this does Leatherface burst into the radio station, cornering the group there. They escape due to a well-timed combination of items, but Lewis is critically injured in the process and begins to bleed out.
    • Arcade, Calvin, and Eve respawn in the presence of Karkat, however Eve is scarred from trying to Mercy Kill Cole and refuses to budge. Carrying her in Calvin's wagon, the group encounters the Ferris wheel where Wells and a militia party plot to collect the Xenomorph's page. He and the militia party climb for it, with one taking the page after another drops down, having drawn the Xenomorph's attention.
    • Rick, Morty, Curly, and Lewis take shelter in the shrimp shack, since abandoned by everyone but the Grinch. Rick attempts to make a salve using the chemicals in the building to stop Lewis's bleeding...and discovers too late that he made Hollywood Acid instead.

Leatherface then appears at the door, and the skinwalker takes advantage of the distraction to reveal itself and kill Lewis.
