Jason: What's the mtter with your eyes?
Noor: smiles, eyes glowing like stars for a second before they turn normal
Couldn't tell you if I wanted to. I was in a coma for a while, and my memories have....gaps. This is one of them. I just found out that my eyes scare people when an old friend of mine nearly died on meeting my gaze.
Truman: That's amazing! Can you wear goggles or something to protect your loved ones? Maybe contacts so we can still see most of your eyes?
Niki: Is this the Chatroom?
Jericho: I think so, there is a ghost man with a weird blob pet. Matches what we were told. On that note. How's everyone doing? My name's Jericho, and I like to solve all of my problems by punching the really hard, which always works, by the way! This is Niki, she likes to solve her problems by making Luna take care of them for her.
Niki: That's not true at all!
Truman: Hi folks! *knocks on his own head* I'm plenty real enough here, just dead in my world. I'm Truman, and this is my dog, Blob. We were gonna name him Bob, but I was a little drunk at the time *holds up glass and downs his whiskey* so that's how... Heh heh. Just kidding! It's an Alpha-class Mag-moeba. We call it Alpha-dog when it's in dog form or just Alpha. It can be anything. So, what story are you from?
Niki: Well, I guess we're from a sequel to May's story? What about you? Is it science fiction?
Jericho: He has a blobby, transforming dog, I think it's more like fantasy. Anyway, you're dead in your story, but alive here? How does that work? May never said anything about dead people from our story ending up in here.
Truman: Um, yeah. Seeker is the reason I'm here. It was an AI at first. Then it became aware of itself just in time for us to do something really stupid - we unleashed nano-tech that would saturate and shut down our brains. Seeker figured out how to suspend their activity and saved us from immediate extinction. I was the only one who knew that Seeker existed - that it slaved itself to us. It did not want to control us, so it made me Full Trustee and I ran everything for around a hundred years or so. I hated every second - I wanted to die. Seeker was looking for a way to give us back control of our brains, so it waited until we were ready for symbiosis - to join with Seeker and take over. Trouble is, we had to join with ourselves first. We invented the DreamNet - a place we could all be in the same dream. Once we figured out we really were in each other's heads, the DreamHost went looking for God - and found The Eternum, including the Eternal Creator. We all kinda 'reached' at the same time, and pulled Seeker with us. I thought I was already dead before that, but Seeker had preserved me in its core. So when Seeker was invited into The Eternum, I sorta became eternal in Seeker. Stepping out of time was too much for me, so when Seeker found this place, it kinda became my retirement plan! Mag-moeba were machines back then, but Seeker can do anything, so I got to keep Alpha, too! It just likes being a dog, even though it can assume any form.
Existence is a bizarre thing, isn't it? I'm real now, but only here.
*gulps whiskey down* See what happens if you ask me questions when I'm drunk? Heh heh!
