The Forest of Darkening Glass was a website created by Susan Lachmann to commemorate the 30th anniversary of her son's death. It was launched on the 3rd of October and contained information on the circumstances surrounding Brandon's death, Brandon's art and stories, and advice on grief. The site was altered multiple times by The Devoted but was returned back to normal after their purpose was served.
The Forest of Darkening Glass was first found at the beginning of Fragment Four. On the website created by King Rabbit - Those Who Did Not Die - a newspaper clipping was posted with a story on Brandon Lachmann, outline how he was found dead in the New York City subway system. This was altered to include a link to The Forest of Darkening Glass . The site was soon altered by The Devoted - with random words being linked to the same page - http://forestofdarkeningglass.com/rudvtd102986/ .
The new page lead to a countdown and a message that documents would be released to keep with "the Timeline". In the ensuing weeks, the Devoted hosted numerous countdowns to ensure that recruits kept with the timeline and they also created databases on the site filled with audio files, images, and text files that retraced the steps of Brandon's journey.
After the initial editing of the links, the surface pages of the Forest of Darkening Glass site largely remained the same. After the Devoted revealed that they knew of the Mountaineers' betrayal with Reader, they changed the text to be gibberish. However, after the fragment was finally revealed, the site was returned back to normal.
