Lora Jett becomes a companion cube
One unpleasantly rainy day, Lora Jett had received an anonymous phone call. The female, almost automated-sounding voice had asked Ms. Jett to investigate a place called Aperture Laboratories.
The red-suited elastic heroine pulled into a seemingly abandoned parking lot in a rented sedan and entered the facility through a small door.
Soon Lora's investigation led her to a cylindrical room about 9 feet in diameter, lined with monitors on its walls and a glass tube in the center. What struck her suspicious was the bluish-green field covering the room's only entrance. She tried placing her hand into it, but nothing happened.
As soon as Ms. Jett entered the room, the screens turned on showing promotional videos of sorts and a male computerized voice came on through a loudspeaker.
"Hello, and welcome to the Aperture Science Enrichment center. If you are a non-employee who has discovered this facility among the ruins of civilization, remember: Testing is the futur
History of SpireFrom what we know in Myst IV: Revelation, Atrus had believed his Prison Age of Spire to be completely uninhabited from the beginning. I, for one, disagree with that belief. The broken stone palaces look much too intricate to have been there without people to have constructed them in the past. Sirrus believed that there was a violent, xenophoboic civilization as well. Perhaps they were, but also highly intelligent. Whatever the case may be, these points were supported by my constant interest in what those rock palaces would have looked like intact, and possibly inhabited. So, I have written a short story detailing the Age of Spire before Atrus linked to it.History of Spire3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Too long ago to recount, a group of humanoid beings appeared on the world of Spire by unknown means. By then, Spire was no more than floating gargantuan masses of rock and crystal sitting in two thick layers of thunderclouds. Thankfully, these humanoids were endowed with enough intellect to construct a series of palaces from th

Crossover: Adventure Time meets Candy Landô

Author's note: For the confused, this story takes place before Finn discovers Flame Princess, and after Princess Bubblegum returns to 18 years old.
The sun was rising over the ever-sweet country of Candy Land, and the residents were preparing themselves for another great day. Plumpy set about tending his gingerbread plum trees, picking off which plums were ripe and pruning unnecessary branches; Jolly and his miners chiseled away in the Gumdrop Mountains, searching for gumdrops of the highest quality, and Grandma Nutt worked her best to maintain her peanut brittle cottage.
But, a few of the royal members of this country somehow felt that this day in particular would be different, in a way they could not describe. In fact, some of the usually cheery inhabitants felt saddened. One such, Queen Frostine, could not help but stare beyond her usually magnificent Ice Cream Sea,

- Atrus: Who are you?
- K’nehtis: Why, I am a humble D’ni inventor, and judging from what you have here, I would say you are as well. My name is K’nehtis, and this is my wife, Moira.
- Atrus: I’m pleased to make your acquaintance, K’nehtis. Forgive my curiosity, but what brought you here to Tomahna?
- Moira: This is our first time on the surface since we fled the Cavern, and we simpl
The story of Lora Jett AKA LovergumLora Jett, Age 31, was initially a blond-haired cashier at a local candy store, selling pounds of candy to every group of children that arrived. She felt happy pleasing kids, as well as of course earning profits. Her income was quite well, at $750 a month, surprisingly. And yet, Lora did feel a bit jealous during her sales: Candy was one of her best after-school snacks, especially bubble gum, but she was never allowed at least one sample for so much as tasting.The story of Lora Jett AKA Lovergum3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
One day, she was more baffled than ever: A large package had arrived at Lora's apartment porch, addressed to her, from a place called "Draemona" that she had never heard of. Forgetting that anomaly, Lora brought the oddly light box into her living room, sliced the tape open, and was surprised as to what was inside. Two things were there: A letter with odd English handwriting on it, and a bright red rubber cat-suit that reached from neck to toe.
Spreading the latter out on the coffee table, Lora studied the costume,

Also known as "Agent G".
I remember the days when Atrus was alive. He, his friend, codenamed "The Stranger", and later Yeesha, showed me wonderful things. But none caught my attention than the Ages of Ahnonay and Kadish Tolesa.
Yeesha, so I was told, once met the man who wrote both of those Ages: Guildmaster Kadish. He was a member of the D'ni Guild of Writers, but dismissed for unknown reasons. Kadish tried to commit suicide by locking himself in his own treasure vault at the time of D'ni's fall, but then Yeesha altered time, and saved him.
I was now preparing to visit those ages, as I was not satisfied with the Age of Ahnonay. Giving the illusion of time travel, he had a Ferris-wheel-style machine of 4 spheres, but only 3 were in working order. The 4th was still under construction, and was never finished.
Well, I decided it was time to get that fixed. I was a millionaire after all, so helping the D'ni fix something would be a snap.
