given the themes of missing memories and altered reality, characters frequently conflict over what is "real." Jay more explicitly tries to gaslight Jessica in one instance near the beginning of season two.

While it can be argued that Masky and Hoodie are simply being possessed by The Operator, it's highly unlikely. Both characters appear to act on their own free will. Alex is also not possessed, rather he is influenced by The Operator.

The series is "unfiction". The series is presented as if it actually happened, with two youtube channels, a twitter, etc. which interacted with fans as if the events in the series were actually happening. The videos are filmed by characters using a camcorder so characters sometimes talk to the camera vlog-style, and characters instinctively look at the camera. Characters address the viewers/twitter users they interacted with sometimes, usually during the vlog-style scenes or via text on screen.

Both no and yes. While it's not brought up in the series itself, one of the creators (Troy Wagner) has confirmed that one of the characters was gay. This isn't something confirmed by the series itself though, so it's a grey area.

There are multiple instances of blood being shown in the series. Especially in Entries #86, #83, #80, and #14.

Characters are threatened with gun violence multiple times, including one character being shot and killed in Entry #80.
