Meow meow m- oh yeah right the author page.


Greetings flesh person!


For those who don't know me, I'm Praetor3005Praetor3005. I've been a fan of fictional worlds for years, and it was only natural that I was drawn into the dizzying world of the Backrooms. I'm currently an author and staff member for TS, but also an author and translator for the French Branch. It's with great pleasure that I force invite you to discover the articles I've produced, as well as the translations I've made.1.


Have a nice trip =)



Articles



Phenomenon 9 — "Blue Consumption": My first page on TS, published for the Phenomenon Contest. I went for my classic love for lore relevancy here, adding on the one of The Blue Channel, which is a crucial part of the overall universe that really deserves more love and development in my opinion. I also decided to use the Remodeling Company as the "narrators" of this article, mostly because of their interesting link with the Backrooms, as its natural reconstructors, almost a force of nature by themselves, using other phenomena of this place for their work. Although I like to see the Remodeling Company more like this natural element of the Backrooms essential to its ecosystem, I still tried to keep a corporate aspect to them, mixed up with the comical nature of the group. Even if the article was far from winning, I had a lot of fun with the formatting and concept alike!



Unnumbered Level — "Oneiroscape": If someone told me just six months ago that I would one day write for the Pantheon canon, I wouldn't have trusted them lmao. This canon always felt… out of place to me. Although I enjoy stuff like Greek mythology and collaborative writing, the overall vibe of the canon wasn't really for me. I disliked (and still do) the lack of overall Backrooms involvement in the story, as well as the gap between the overall vibe of the Backrooms and that of the Pantheon. However, as I got to discover the canon and its community, I'll have to admit I started to appreciate its lore. Oneiroscape represents the first iteration of my vision of a Backrooms god, being just this eldritch being dreaming of the universe, a style of character highly inspired by the Old Gods of WoW or the Eldrazi of MTG. I also liked the idea of an avatar wanting to give up his godhood, collaborating with the enemy to escape a place that, even with pure omnipotence towards it, doesn't feel right to him. It was also one of my first narrative writing for the Backrooms, which was an interesting exercise. The classic liminal, almost dream-like vibe of the level was also something I wanted to use in this canon, as a tentative to "reconcile" the Pantheon with the overall core canon of this universe. I got some help from awesome people for this page, and I look forward to continuing Morpheus's story!



Person of Interest — Callum Andrews: Oh well looks like I did a Pantheon thing again. This time, the page is heavily linked to The Iron Fist, a rather important group of the canon. In this universe, Backrooms Robotics actually is one of the team of the IF, Sol. It started as a community of craftsmen during the antiquity, but shifted to a technology-based company after some events in its history. The idea of Callum actually came first from MctoranMctoran, with the base concept being a corporate leader inspired by the silicon valley CEOs of our world. I went with a biography article- quite litterally actually, as most of the page had been written as an article from a Backrooms journal. Like your usual success story, Callum managed to overcome the obstacles of life to get more and more power, starting as a simple B.N.T.G. collector, to become some years later the CEO of Backrooms Robotics. Since this page isn't as Pantheon-related as some other articles like Oneiroscape, I tried to use the core canon as much as possible, with some mentions of the Industrialization canon alongside it. It was also the perfect page to create a small timeline of events, which is something I like doing when writing about groups or individual characters, like with the Ariane Circle on the -FR branch.

Entity 19 — "The Disease": Although this rewrite came in November, it actually started back in… probably April if I recall correctly. For context, out of all the early entities of this wiki, this one was probably the article I hated the most. Not only did it feature a fungi image for a virus (yes this is VERY RELEVANT in my opinion), but it also was terribly cliche in its gore aspect, while also having horrible inconsistencies in its own page. I thought this page could use some more scientific development, while also updating it with newer information from other pages. My plans were divided into two parts.

First, the narration part. With this entity, I wanted to tell a story. A tale of an old group that saw the (somewhat) birth of this disease. This part shows how groups were before the rise of factions like the M.E.G, very scarce and with little communication. Yet some people tried to run institutions to help wanderers. Obviously, they weren't really good, which explains why the disease uprising was such a terrible event for them. Because they didn't know how to deal with it properly, they unfortunately spread it on other levels. For the format of this part, I decided to use several archive formats, like mails, journal notes… to vary the different tone and writing structures to make the narrative more evolved. I also used some purely narrative parts with the thoughts of a simple man who witnessed the events. And finally, I linked all of this to the M.E.G. (kind of, people from the FR branch may know Katya from another group), using the group showed on the Level 109 page as a lore element

Then we got the clinical M.E.G database part. I always wanted to try to create a Backrooms disease with scientific roots to make it more believable, while still keeping the original tone of the page. Needless to say, the latter didn't really work, as a lot of things changed for its behavior. Old symptoms didn't make any sense, and I therefore had to remove most of them, keeping the one that made sense with the mode of operation of the species. It even became a bacteria, as opposed to a virus. But as I wanted to make sure I made no contradiction to any other page, I checked every article mentioning this page in order to keep the elements it showcased, but also by mentioning the links of those pages in the rewrite. I'm proud to say that all pages that linked entity 19 when I made the draft are mentionned on the rewrite! It was quite interesting to see how people developped such a bland and boring entity in their own writings. I also tried my best to keep this page friendly for people who didn't care about scientific explanations, mainly by showcasing the effects separated from how the entity worked.

Overall, I'm quite happy with how it turned out. It may have taken almost six months and… a lot of people to crit it, but the final render was great! I really liked working on this rewrite, and I hope to do it again, as lore expansion is one of my favorite things to do on this wiki.

Also fun fact about this one I translated it in french at the same time I wrote it to "save some time" and actually had to apply the crits to both original and translation during those six months to keep both up to date and… yeah I'm not doing that again lmao.
