Stacey knocked on the door. I opened the door and greeted her. I was flustered, she was smiling broadly. She seemed super relaxed, confident. She was holding a notebook. As she greeted me, asked me how I was doing, she opened the notebook and held it up: it said “Please invite me inside.”
I briefly considered pretending not to see it, because the apartment is in extreme disarray, because Steven and I have barely been home in the past two weeks.
Then I invited her in, internally wincing.
She came in and said that she just wanted to check on my WiFi connection, make sure everything was ok, etc. She flipped to the next page in the notebook. It said: “Show me where you have your most intense conversations.”
Aloud, she said, “So if you could show me the area, the laptop, where you chat with your confidant…”
I gestured toward the couch and she began hunting, making casual chit-chat all the while. Looking under pillows, moving books…
She noticed our basket of plush Rick and Morty toys, went over to it. Felt around inside, and pulled something out. Then said loudly, “Could I use your bathroom?” “Of course.” I pointed. She said, hint hint, “Can you show me where it is?” I took the hint and followed her inside.
She held up a small wired electronic object. Then tossed it outside the bathroom and closed the door. “Was that a bug?” She nodded. She told me she’d found it with the toys and that she was going to get rid of it, bring it with her to the car. She seemed strangely…excited.
She had me hum into her phone, said that she was going to play the recording of me humming in the interim between her leaving the apartment and destroying the bug.
She thanked me and said, relieved………dammit I can’t remember exactly what she said. Basically indicating that now that she’d found the bug, she knew the truth. I asked her if she was ok, she said she was now. I asked her if I could do anything to help her, she said to please not worry anyone. She was fine…now she’s in charge.
She smiled radiantly.
She hastened out, complimented our chairs, didn’t seem to have time for any questions. Waved as she closed the door behind her. I stood in the middle of the apartment with my mouth open for about 60 seconds.
Then I did a quick check for bugs. I mean you never know.
So. Now Stacey’s in charge. My home is not being eavesdropped on. All’s right with the world?June 6, 2017 at 10:21 pm #16197KortneyParticipant
Do you think she actually found the wire or was it a magic trick like she already had it in her and and then “found” it?June 6, 2017 at 10:24 pm #16198KortneyParticipant
They’re gonna know she fucked with the wire/bug. Feel like Stacey is going to get in a lot more trouble now.June 6, 2017 at 10:24 pm #16199Meghan MayhemParticipant
In the warehouse, Noah said to his father that he was the one with the power because he had the secrets.
Perhaps when she says she’s in charge now, it’s that now that she can prove what’s going on, she has the leverage and she has the power.June 6, 2017 at 10:25 pm #16200Brad RuweParticipant
Fuuuuuuucking hell. Yeah easily could’ve been that she was palming the bug the whole time. It’s hard to know for sure without seeing her “find” it.
But jesus, that’s crazy. So either she had been played, manipulated herself, not realizing what her company was being used for, or this is all part of some bigger plan we still don’t understand, where she’s working with those collecting info on us. Or hell, maybe something completely different.
All I know is I’m going to enjoy these last days of location anonymity before my new address location gets out there. #OSDMSafeHouseJune 6, 2017 at 10:25 pm #16201SageParticipant
Who is bugging your apartment and why?? What could they possibly be listening for?June 6, 2017 at 10:25 pm #16202MarandaParticipant
Who’s to say there’s only one? There could be more bugs, or worse, cameras. Better do a sweep as soon as you can.June 6, 2017 at 10:26 pm #16203ChrisParticipant
Just curious, is it the same notebook from the Facebook live event? Interesting how possessing a single bug from one participant’s house that she had fully expected to find would so decisively turn to tide in her eyes. @111error‘s place must be full of them. I wonder what she’s planning. ALSO @daela: what did you hum?June 6, 2017 at 10:38 pm #16204LiaParticipant
Why is she getting herself tangled up in this? She seemed so scared in her video. Why, now, is she deciding to take control of things beyond the problems with her own company? If she came and manually scanned your computer for viruses or something, I’d get it. But this feels like she’s being influenced by two separate entities. 1) Off-camera intimidating person telling her to cover up the leaks and 2) someone else telling her to shine a light on them, even if it means putting herself in danger.June 6, 2017 at 10:41 pm #16205CandaceParticipant
Whoa.. so, I take it the call she made earlier was her being forced by the same person forcing her to make the fb live video. Therefore she knew they would go in and bug your house while you were out then went over at night to secretly rectify the situation ??? Does that sound right or do you think that bug has been there for a while ? 🤔
*trying to think if they would know my address…of course they do…fuck…*June 6, 2017 at 10:43 pm #16206Buz WallickModerator
I’m going to take her finding the bug at face value that she actually found it and didn’t plant it.
This is fucking rad. 3 Days of the Condor shit, man.
So what’s the bigger picture here? What leverage does Stacey have now that she can old over who was forcing her against her will to do that FB Live video?
So many more questions have arised but I’m more and more becoming fascinated with Stacey’s story.June 6, 2017 at 10:43 pm #16207SageParticipant
I think it seems like she’s acting on her own free will now. First she was going along with whomever was trying to control her in the video. We could tell that she was being forced to say those things and she didn’t really want to. But now, she’s gone rogue. She’s taking control to either save herself or take charge of the situation in order to possibly save others (us?).June 6, 2017 at 10:43 pm #16208KevinParticipant
I’m with @kortneydarling here. Unless something is going down with iConfidant right now, seems like it would have made more sense for Stacey to leave the bug in place while suggesting that @daela doesn’t have intense conversations there until this is sorted. By removing it, she tips her hand and they know that she knows now. So, good luck Stacey, I hope you’ve got a plan.June 6, 2017 at 10:44 pm #16209Lauren BelloParticipant
@kortneydarling – It’s always possible that she planted it…but what would she have to gain? I forgot to mention, I asked her who had put it there and she specifically said she couldn’t say. So she wasn’t using it to try to turn me against anyone or make me paranoid. The bug was significant to her, but she wouldn’t share anything about that significance. For me, that points to this being a real discovery…the fact that she was so secretive about it and what it meant.
@meghanmayhem – I think you’re totally right, Stacey believes uncovering the truth gives her some sort of leverage. I worry about her, though, because I don’t think it’s going to be that easy. I don’t think confronting OSDM with the bug would end well for her. (But maybe that’s me underestimating her…something I’m realizing I’ve probably been doing for a while.)
@sfire8 – No idea why they would bug me. It was interesting that she specifically thought they were listening for “intense conversations”.
@lilmsfancpants – I really felt like her actions tonight were coming from her tonight. I could be wrong, but this was the most comfortable and confident I’ve ever seen/heard her. I was into it.June 6, 2017 at 10:46 pm #16210Kevin HsuParticipant
This sounds like an Evil Twin device; a device that spoofs the SSID of @daela‘s WIFI and relays all data traffic to the real WIFI. This would allow a person to see all of @daela‘s internet use, emails, Rick and Morty streaming, etc.
…except for the part about it fitting in the palm of her hand, and her not willing to speak openly around it…
…something’s not adding up with Stacey’s story…
