Storyline: Friends (Horrorlass - CynnamonDolce)
Alessandra introduced herself as a finatic of the horror genre. Her early videos were ponderings of of different horror movies she had seen. She aslo mentioned that she's a member of the Hymn of One and is preparing for the Ceremony. And old friend of her's, Cynthia, invites her to a party at a 18-and-over nightclub where her boyfriend Matt works. Alessandra accepts the invitation, and sneaks out to hang out with her old friends (including Paul, whom it is hinted has a crush on her). Alessandra believes that she has gotten away with it, but it dismayed when her parents hire her an advisor. Sophie is described as controlling to the point where Alessandra becomes unable to make videos. Cynthia becomes increasingly worried, and tries several times to regain contact with her. She invites her to a performace she is giving at the coffee shop where her mom works.
In the 5on5 Season Finale, The Coffee shop was visited by a man fitting the description of a Watcher (posing as an inspector). When he wasn't looking, Cynthia's mother dug through his bag and found leaflets for the Hymn of One. The Man was hosipalized after being exposed to radium "found" in the Coffee shop, suggesting there had been a foiled attempt on Cynthia's life. Afterwards, Paul and Alessandra went into hiding and Cynthia and Matt went on the run.
Storyline: Clique (Lostgrl17 - Aaalondra - TwinklyDiamonds)
- Liandra's parents
- Alondra's parents
- Chandra's parents
- Ash Pitasooze
- The "IT" Challenge Girls
Li started posting video blogs in order to make friends. She says that because of the strictness of her Religion, she is not allowed to play or associate with people of different faiths. Alondra started posting video blogs in order to figure out how to join the Hymn of One and become famous. Chandra, a girl whose confidence is only outweighed by her bitchiness, started posting videos telling the other new girls that she has been chosen for the ceremony and not them. Chandra sponsers Alondra into the Hymn of one, even though Liandra offered several times beforehand. After joining the Hymn of One, Alondra was overwhelmed by friend requests on MySpace, and she and Chandra devised a way to "trim the fat." Li auditioned, and although a girl named Danielle won the top spot, she still managed to join their clique. She was immediately put to work doing various odds and ends for Chandra and Alondra. Strangely, Chandra then deleted her accounts and videos without explanation around this time.
By the time of the 5on5 Season Finale, Alondra's singing career was taking off. Unfortunately, she was in a car accident and hospitalized when her debut single topped the charts. Soon after, she was mysteriously moved by the Hymn of One to an unknown location. Li posted a video expressing her concern for Alondra's well being. She also said how she was leaving the clique because it was distorting her eternal song. She also explained the significance of a recurring symbol in the Flock series, the Shen ring, and it's connection to the mysterious ShepherdX. ShepherdX himself posted a video soon after of Chandra doing the ceremony, and apparently dying. However, he seems to save her at the last second.
Storyline: Sisters (Betz281 - Grainofsandra)
Betz had been posting videos of herself singing long before she bagan vlogging. She talked about how much her religion has enriched her life and how she and her family were rescued by them. Her father, who had been previously out of work, was provided vocational training and started a successful career. She herself got a Hymn of One scholarship so she could pay for college. Her sister, Sandra was very voung when her family converted to the Hymn of One, so she was practically raised in it. Sandra is extremely obediant to her religion and has lots of fun doing it, and was chosen to participate in an exclusive summer camp program. On the summer solstice, Betz lost contact with Sandra. She was worried until Sandra posted the video Camp is the Word, where she is safely at summer camp. Betz is concerned over her sister's bizarre behavior, as she seems to be in some sort of trance until the last few seconds where she asks someone off-screen if there's any pizza left. After leaving camp, Betz's husband, Mike, a world-renowned psychiatrist, took Sandra to Los Angeles to the Hymn of One Center for a retreat.
In the 5on5 Season Finale, Betz discovers that Mike has been performing tests on Sandra that were, in some cases, mind-altering. She confronts Mike about this, but he simply tells her to Sing her Eternal Song." Betz angrily responds: "I Will Not Sing My Eternal Song!"
Storyline: Friends (CynnamonDolce - Horrorlass)
Cynthia posted a video a few months later saying how she and mind returned home shortly after going on the run. She expresses concern over Alessandra and Paul's safety, and urges them to contact her. A while later, Alessandra posted a video describing where she and Paul had been hiding over the past few months. She also leaves a riddle for Cynthia. Cynthia figures out what it means, and retrieves a drop from them with information regarding the Hymn of One's activities.
The information from the drop leads her to Leamington Spa (Aleister Crowley's birthplace). There, she failed to find any trace of Alessandra or Paul and concluded that she was on a wild goose chase.
Storyline: Sisters (Betz281 - A114one)
Betz posted a video a few months later in a delusional/brainwashed state. She said that Mike had explained everything to her and that the tests were to prepare Sandra for her future career as a Hymn of One historian in Sedona. A few days later, she posted a video addressed to her closest friends and informed us that she is well aware of what's going on and she's putting on an act in front of Mike. While digging through his files, she discovers a phone number belonging to a David Jerr...
His daughter, Ananda has been posting art videos on youtube. She often makes unintentional references to the mysterious ShepherdX in her videos, and flop-flops on her feelings towards the letter "X" itself. She answers the phone when Betz calls a number she finds, and is convinced to join thechosenflock myspace so Betz can keep an eye on her.
