In August-September 2009, a phenomenon dubbed 'Junko Junsui' emerged on the internet. Internet denizens found themselves caught up amidst an apparent struggle between a pseudo-religious Sisterhood called 'The Junsui' and a shadowy Russian paramilitary organization called Alfa-Tsentr and its PR partner Men of Taste. Events spanned four continents, four languages, and several communication mediums (including dead drops in Brooklyn, NY and Santiago, Chile), and challenged knowledge of history, mythology, biology, geography, and cryptanalysis.

The Junsui rapidly gained a large audience when a faux Google page was discovered to lead to a camera feed of a girl in a cell when the proper search term was entered.

The Junsui claimed the girl was their sister, "Little Bird", and that they needed to find her and rescue her from her captors.

What followed was (and remains) a very deep rabbit hole of intrigue, history, and lore that is as fascinating as it is unsettling. The deeper you go, the less certain you will be of the boundary between fiction and reality.

For a very well written introduction to the events of 2009, we suggest starting here: Knowing The Junsui.

For a more detailed and comprehensive (though harder to follow) account of events, visit the Junko Junsui subforum at unFiction, specifically the trailhead thread.

Also visit the Junsui on Facebook and on Twitter.

We currently need contributors who can take responsibility for the following sections:

  • Timeline - Manage the timeline section with small/frequent updates, including tweets, FB posts, discoveries, or other significant events. This is a very important job that will preserve the chronology of events for easier analysis, and posterity.
  • People - Manage the people section with people we have encountered (historical and present) and compile information/dossiers about them, including history, pictures, social media accounts, communications, and role in significant events.
  • Files - Manage the files section, making sure all documents, videos, or particularly significant photos are accounted for. Write up analyses of existing files, including confirmed findings, current theories and discussion.
  • Organizations - Manage the organizations section by compiling a list of organizations we have encountered, including history, relevant events, aims and goals, and members (cross-reference to People section).
  • Locations - Manage the locations section. Compile a list of all referenced/significant locations, including name, lat/lon coordinates, and a brief summary of the location's relevance (or longer for particularly important locations).This role is a bit more technical since it will involve updating our Google Earth KML file and uploading new versions of it, which will require some basic familiarity with javascript.
  • General Contributor - If you want to help but do not want to be responsible for any section in particular, that's still wonderful and we would love your help.
