The world's ending, and of all those left alive, they had to send the pacifist.
With no hope that his own actions matter, and the increasing strain of an alien world bearing down upon him, Gerald Copeman struggles to remain sane and do the right thing...
Even when the very definition of what is right shifts, twists, and alters around him.
Now includes musical ambience with every chapter.
An incredibly surreal novelization of id's Quake, and a whole lot more beside, intended to feel like a fever-dream after an FPS marathon in the dead of winter, with the The Thing playing on repeat in the distant background.
Expect amateur philosophy, ultra-violence, fanservice and horror, or probably just horror masked as fanservice.
Updated after two years or so; I'll be editing and releasing an installment every
dayweek or so, for some time to the future until the story wraps up.
- Part 1 of Memoirs from the End of the World
Fandoms: Lighthouse: The Dark Being
22 Jul 2014
What you're about to read is a story based off the excellent old Sierra adventure game, Lighthouse: the Dark Being.
A year ago or so, I discovered that Alien Arcana over at the archive did a let's play of the game - and was awash in all the good memories. Figured now was as good a time as any to write a story in commemoration of all that. If you're just here for porn, buckle up for a bit . And if you actually like the game, like I do - don't let my gendering of the protagonist as a dude stop you from writing your own stories. One of the perks of games like this was that the protagonist could be pretty much anyone, or anything - I just choose to write 'em as a dude because it's what I'm familiar with. That out of the way - please enjoy, and thanks for reading.
I've done my best to make the story as lonely and soul-searching as the original game 'felt' without getting into melodrama. There's sex and a lot of talking - but I believe those add to the story, not detract from it. Whether I succeeded or not - that's your call. But I very much enjoyed writing this, and I hope it may have some of the significance for you as it does for me.
