November 19, 2189 [2200 U.T.]

Dear Diary,

Sorry for not updating yesterday, but I had nothing to say. It was business as usual. We just looked around for shit with the company people constantly on our backs. Those guys are really starting to get on my nerves! That’s pretty much all that happened.

The reason why I’m writing this is because we have a situation. Johnson(17) is missing! We haven’t been able to find him since 1600 today. We asked Lewis if he knew where he was, since he was the last one to see Johnson. He said Johnson went to see if he could open the hatch to the cargo hold we’ve been trying to get into for the past two days. We went to have a look. The cargo door was open, but there was no sign of him. Where the hell did he go?

I said before the Sulaco was giving me the creeps, but now it’s just fucking scaring me! And I still don’t know why it gives me the creeps. Maybe I do believe in the Weyland conspiracy? What if what the company people want is an alien? Do they think there’s an alien on the Sulaco? Is that what they are not telling us? Dear God, is that thing we found an alien egg?

I’m such a fuck shit, this is ridiculous! What the hell am I thinking? I guess I’m just freaking out because we cannot find Johnson. What if he just passed out somewhere? That sounds just about right. Yeah, that dumb fuck just passed out somewhere.

…if only I could believe that thought.

Well, a few stayed behind on the Sulaco to look for him. I just hope they find him so I can get this ridiculous thought out of my head.

Aliens, yeah right.



Private Aaron Johnson was born December 14, 2163 in Huston, Texas, United States. His family owned a small ranch just outside of Huston. He graduated from the University of California as a mechanical engineer in 2186. He got a job with Weyland-Yutani in September, 2186 as an assistant technician on the towing vessel U.S.C.S.S. Apollo, but quit his job 8 months later. Johnson joined the Marine Corps in August of 2187 and was assigned to the station on Fomalhaut.

While I like the attention to detail here, and there are certain things about the form that are fun (blog/diary/footnotes/action sequence), I need to point out somewhere that the story seems, to any of us who have ever seen one of the relevant movies, pretty much as expected. Isn't there some way you could disrupt our expectations, such that the surprising form would make the story itself more surprising, perhaps?
