Ray Caster: Full Disclosure [Nov. 28th, 2005|01:32 pm]
Ray Caster
Many of you have been wondering where I've been for the past nine months. I'm here today to tell you the whole truth.

Before I do, I'd like to take you on a stroll down memory lane via your own comments:




"i'm sure your book deal after all this will turn into a hefty profit."

"Caster, I don't care how this ends up, you have to at least write a book about your life, I think."
- seinjunkie - 2004-07-05

"You know Ray, odds are that your weird life reports is going to grow so popular with time that you'll be asked to make a book out of it. And you're not even a call girl/expensive prostitute!"
- hawk_one - 2004-09-25

"Will you PLEASE make a movie about your life, or at least a book, or something? Honestly... You need to share these kinds of things with the WORLD!!!!"

You wanted me to write a book, and the time for that book has come. But before I get to that, there's one more thing you should know about me.

I am not Ray Caster.

There is no Ray Caster.

You have all partaken in an experiment which, like the holographic Doctor on Caster's beloved Voyager, expanded far beyond its original parameters. The epic saga that unfolded in this journal was actually a story written by Marcus Alexander Hart, aka marcus132. I apologize for the trickery. I never meant to hurt anybody with this hoax, and I sincerely hope that I haven't.

With the experiment completed, I've turned Ray Caster's LiveJournal into a book entitled Caster's Blog: A Geek Love Story.

As the people who followed and interacted with this odyssey in real time, I feel I owe Ray Caster's followers a forum in which to voice your reactions to the revelation of his true nature. This post is that forum. Use the comments to tell the world how you feel in your own uncensored words.

Thank you for reading, and thank you for believing. I hope you all had as much fun during your year with Ray Caster as I did.

Despite my "calling it out", I had absolutely no idea. About once a month since his last post, I'd wonder whatever happened to Caster and wish him well... about as close to "keeping someone in your prayers" as a guy who doesn't yet believe in prayer can get. I told more than a few people at work and elsewhere his story because it was entertaining and exciting. Knowing it's all a hoax doesn't really change my take on his story, it just makes me kind of disappointed that there's no future to it. At least now I know the conclusion.

Caster really made me smile, I'll just keep on thinking of him as his own person, thankyouverymuch. I can't wait to buy the book so I can tell people I knew him before he got famous... yanno, and before he got non-existant.
