I couldn't believe it.
I had just had one of the greatest days in my life, saving a porn forager and gotten a tiny reward of goddamn FILM, not just pictures, the sound intact and everything. I was heading back to my old Fort, /eshd/, an old conglomerate trading area, to get some fucking hard cash.
Then...Then I saw it. No, sorry, It. It was surrounded by a weird aura of nothing. Not darkness, nothing, as if space around it simply ceased to exist. If I had to describe the damn thing...damn it, I hate describing it, but someone always fucking asks. It looked like a chessboard, with numbers drawn on the squares. Tiny wars were happening on it's surface, little mushroom clouds.
And I said, in disbelief, "You shouldn't exist. You...you're fiction! You're from a fucking movie, dammit!"
And it replied: "WOULD YOU LIKE TO PLAY A GAME?"
