A magnitude 6.3 earthquake has struck the Duboi Mountains, the Ordennyan Geological Survey said, though there were no immediate reports of damage. The epicenter was in the mountain range and struck just before 7 AM local time. Being far away from major populations, minimal casualties were experience. However, several mountainous towns and villages were leveled by the earthquake.
A fault was created by the earthquake on the west side of the Duboi Mountain, very close to the epicenter. This fault was first spotted by DSAN helicopters in the area.
A young man by the name of David Whitney saw this fault on his local television. He was amazed by it. He was drawn to it. "I have to see this fault" he thought to himself.
He bought a plane ticket, boarded his flight, and began his journey to the Dubois Mountain. With him were camping gear, food, water, and some clothes, with the expectation of staying there for a few days to witness this fault. He couldn't explain why he felt such a strong urge to see this fault, but was compelled to see it.
He was not the only one who felt this. While most are content to see the fault online and on their TVs, a handful of people began journeys to the Dubois Fault. This fault is quite magnificent in it's grand size and recent appearance, meaning they will be some of the first humans to ever see this fault.

Visitors to the fault have found perhaps a very strange sight; hundreds of human shaped wholes in the side of the mountain. It is believed that they were buried under sediment and were exposed by the earthquake. Researchers immediately started studying these holes to learn about them. These human silhouettes in the rock are shown to be deeper than 30 meters, specific depths not being known at the moment. Geologists indicate that the holes are not new, but perhaps thousands of years old and not naturally made. However, they have no way of knowing why the holes were made or who would have the technology to do it. This has led to much speculation. Some believe that they were made by gods like Violet, Jeb!, or Roger. Others believe that they were made by ancient aliens. Some are proposing that the first humans came out of these holes and were grown there by aliens. For now, there can only be speculation.
David was surprised by these holes and found them somewhat interesting, but didn't really see them being anything big. He's not one to believe in big mysterious things and scoffed at some of the ideas of it being made by divine or alien forces.
"I found it. I found it!" said a voice near David. It was a man who was standing in front of a hole. He looked around, trying to find someone to tell his discovery to. Seeing David, he walked up to show him the hole.
"Do you see this? It's my hole." he showed David.
"It's my perfect silhouette. You can't deny that this is my exact shape". He was right, the whole appeared to be his exact shape; same arm lengths, same hip width, even same hair style. "When I saw it on TV, it was only for a few seconds, but I knew it was mine. I had to come and see it."
David was confused. This hole is said to be thousands of years old. How can it be your hole?
David then noticed the man taking off his clothes. He stripped down to his underwear. "I can show you!" the man exclaimed. He climbed in and showed that he fit perfectly. It's like his body just settled right into it.
He then started sliding into the hole, like he was being pulled in or something.
"Dude, what are you doing?" David asked. "That's dangerous, you can get stuck in there!". However, the man kept sinking into the hole, and then was gone.

It has been over 3 hours since the man who entered one of the holes in the fault has disappeared. Crowds of people have been shouting for him to come out of the hole, but he has not come out. Researchers in the area show that there is no trace of him within 20 meters, meaning that the man has traveled further down into the mountain. A rescue squad attempted to retrieve the man by sending in a squad member that was the same height as the hole, but they only made it about 5 meters before needing to be pulled out.
David was disturbed by this. He could only imagine what it might be like for the man who entered the hole; unable to move in pitch black darkness, stuck in the shape of the cavity, screaming in his long and final moments for someone to help him. With the earthquake happening, he imagined the hole must be deformed as well, probably stretching and bending his limbs the further into the mountain he went. He didn't want to think about that kind of agony.
He set up his tent for the night, wishing to rest, still disturbed by the idea of all of this.

It has been a full day since the man who entered the hole in the fissure disappeared. Following this incident, more people have entered holes in the fissure, claiming that those holes are theirs and that the holes were "made for them". Currently, 3 men and 2 women have disappeared inside the holes. Local authorities have chosen to close off the area from any more tourists. However, more have gotten past the line. Two people were apprehended, and 1 climbed inside a hole.
David saw it; his hole. He didn't believe in all this and thought those climbing into the holes were nut jobs, but he couldn't deny it once he saw his perfect silhouette. He couldn't describe why, but he felt every part of his being telling him to enter that hole. The darkness inside seemed warm compared to the cold reality of life.
In his desperate attempt to get in, he broke through the police line. Two others attempted to do the same, but didn't make it.
As he ran, he stripped himself down to his underwear and climbed into his hole. Police attempted to grab him, but by the time they arrived, he was too far in to grab.
Being a people used to mountainous conditions, and owing to their possibly greater experience with more...universal secrets...than the other races on the DSA planet, Chairwoman Zhaan prevailed upon the ruling council in the matter of the developing issues in the Dubois fault region.
A letter is sent to Student Loan Debt that, briefly, recalls the history of good trade relations between Burninandom and Student Loan Debt, points out Burninite experience living in mountainous terrain and with biology, and offers to send a small team to help locate the victims of this event. The letter is signed by the Chairwoman herself.
