January[edit | edit source]
- January 4: Andrew Greene writes about his "vacation." Stress, paranoia, lying to his parents. He hung up rudely on Mary Beth, but felt bad about it afterwards. They came back to find that Chain was hanging around their class, ostensibly for "extracurricular studies," but truthfully as a show of force to dissuade them from even thinking about leaving the Technocracy.
- January 6: Mary Beth presents part of her extra-credit paper on the Traditions, specifically regarding the Akashic Brotherhood. Chain makes a presentation entitled "Pharmacopeist enemies and Progenitor threats," covering the Celestial Chorus.
- January 9: Mary Beth presents part of her extra-credit paper on the Traditions, specifically regarding the Cult of Ecstasy and the Order of Hermes. Likewise, Andrew Greene presents part of his paper, covering the Euthanatos. Chain continues his presentation entitled "Pharmacopeist enemies and Progenitor threats," covering the Dreamspeakers.

- January 13: Mary Beth asks Dr. Reid about the Virtual Adepts. Reid turns red and begins yelling about the "traitorous scoundrels." Andrew Greene decides he's made his bed with the Progenitors, so he'd best make himself comfortable.
- January 18: Dr. Reid begins discussing supernatural entities. He covers vampires, werewolves, mummies, faeries, and ghosts.

- February 9: In his final journal entry, Andrew Greene, when describing the Marauders, Nephandi, and Traditions as "madness, destruction and ignorance," also describes the Progenitors. He says he once thought he wanted all the knowledge he could get, but is now aware of the folly of that action. Dr. Reid wants him to come up to his lab in Washington for a "final revelation." Greene isn't sure how he'll react, but knows he has to go.
- February 14: Warden Jeffrey Degenhardt II writes in his journal that he's finally destroyed the vampires who Embraced him, and thus avenged the murders of his family. He and Dr. Hadrian will remain at Ashcroft Penitentiary and use the inmates for research and sustenance.
