    Things at the research base are going well. The Lieutenant announced that Project LIGHTNINGHAND had been completed. This medical breakthrough shall ensure the health of children around the world! I’d like to give more details about it, but I’m afraid it’s still classified. I cannot write even the smallest detail of it here until it becomes a worldwide phenomenon.
    Aside from that, there are a few concerns about weather. It’s supposed to get below -35 this weekend. Well what did they expect?! It’s freaking ANTARCTICA! It’s not going to rain fire!
    And one more thing: I’ve been hearing some strange sounds coming from one of the test tubes (The ones that Prof. Tomahanau had been experimenting on.) It keeps me up at night.
    Speaking of which, I gotta hit the hay. Until next time…..

    I can’t sleep. That tube. There is something inside that tube. But they won’t let me near it. My exploits have demoted me to Engineer. It doesn’t help me sleep. I’ve gotta get in there.
    I’m going to make a break for it tonight. I don’t care if it kills me.
    LIGHTNINGHAND failed. The initial tests looked fine, but mutations occurred. Strange mutations. Things that would never happen in nature. I haven’t seen a mutant. I don’t want to. Wish me luck.

    I am writing this to anyone who may come by here. I am afraid that I shall not make it much longer, so I decided to make a detailed explanation of what happed 11 years ago.
    I was a bioengineer working here at Angelwings Research Base, hidden at the Weddell Sea shore in Antarctica. During Project LIGHTNINGHAND I was charged with removing waste products made by the machine. I was curious about the waste. It was a dark solid chunk of what appeared to be radiation and biological chemicals. I placed them separately in testing tubes, doing various tests. Eventually, one of the tubes began
    Oh god… He’s here! RUN! RUN NOW! GO

    I have mastered writing, I believe. I may be able to explain in further detail.

    I was born here, in a small place. I am the only one here. Everyone else won’t talk to me. Maybe they have too much of that red stuff in their mouths?
    I took a little metal thing off of one. I guess it’s my name now.
    Something here makes a strange noise. The moving wood thing in front of the room says “LIGHTNINGHAND”.
    I don’t remember anything past a few weeks ago.
    Am I insane?
    I haven’t gone out yet. I might.
