Who is Nick Running From?

Simple question. I don't have an answer for it.

I've been tracking his movements over the last month or so. He's been posting on various blogs using a smartphone. None of the material he's posted relates to him or his situation, so there's no point in me linking to it.

Since he started running, Nick's been shadowed by several people who've been identified to civilian authorities as "Secret Service", "FBI", "Department of Homeland Security", and other such federal agencies. The supposed "Agent Fisk" I keep hearing about has nothing to do with this.

A friend of mine in the Philadelphia Police Department informed me point blank that I should stay the hell out of this. His exact words were:

"Ellen. You stare into the abyss, and the abyss stares back. And it isn't a hole, it's a mouth. Walk away."

That detective is quite the bibliophile. Sadly, I can't walk away. I've given up on tracking Nick. He'll show up again when he wants to. In the mean time: I can tell you the story of why we're here now. And that's what Time Lord has told me to do. I'll pick up where Nick left off, from my perspective.

Some of you may be friends with Nick Dwyer, the AmalgamationSage. Don't go looking for him. Don't make a scene trying to find him. This is only going to get worse.


  1. Surely it will get better afterwards.

  2. ... I'm kind of tempted to say challenge accepted. Wouldn't be the first time I've gotten over my head.
    But then again, if Nick doesn't want to be found, he won't be. That simple. Ellen? Have a little faith.

    Our Sage has a knack of surviving things that "get worse".
