    Summary

    Scientists have worked for decades to develop the technology to seamlessly integrate computers into our brains. The technology was dreamed of, researched, engineered, built, improved, sold, re-engineered, rebuilt, and sold again over the careers of thousands of men and women. Soon, ready or not, we will have this capability. So what happens at the edge then? Perhaps a teenage boy named Joey, an early adopter can show us.

    On the new frontier of virtual reality, coders, players, hackers, businesses, enthusiasts, and a nervous public explore the boundaries of experience. And they reckon with problems no one expected when you push the envelope of our human reality.

    This story is out-of-order. Questions raised here about the past have answers coming in the future.

    Note: this is not a direct fan work in the universe of the tagged fandoms. It is an original piece inspired by them, and the explosion of VR gaming of the mid to late 20-teens.

    So, to begin, picture a deathmatch-type shooter video game. And a teenager up late with school tomorrow...

    Summary

    Traveling to the digital world and back again... Simulated events warping reality... Going back in time and undoing past events... Surely these things are all impossible. No matter how powerful a computer is, it’s still just a machine.

    But what if things were different? What if all this and more had already happened, in a reality that never took place? What if the connection, once made, could not be unmade, just forgotten and hidden?

    What happens when the connection is found again?

    Rated M for eventual violence and Lain-universe craziness.
