Pick up the pace... [Jul. 15th, 2034|12:14 pm]

Welp, that was a first. Dying I mean. So I wake up in the vat right, stumble out, vomit all the shit outta my lungs. I find that my credstick is actually beefier than I remembered at my last update; of course, buying a new clone fixed that. Anyway, I get back to my apartment ASAP, and I ran down the fucking streets naked, mind you. I go inside and fucking see myself laying dead on the floor next to a Mindseye II. Here's the fun part: I had to fucking undress my corpse, and after putting the very same fucking clothes back on my new body, I fucking drug myself outside and left myself in the street. Holy shit. Now maybe to some people this isn't unusual, but I've never had to fucking do this before, understand.

Anyway, I guess I bought this deck and was fucking around in cyberspace and got my ass killed. How, I don't know. My old self's DNI was thoroughly fried though. I'm pretty damn sure I was scythed, because I don't fuck around with high level HICE. Of course, I don't think I've made anybody mad at me, so it would have to have been just a fucking random attack. I have no proof. Not that it really matters anyway. And now I'm fucking broke again. The deck's okay at least, and it's a pretty fucking nice one too. I'll need to upgrade it soon though.


Do I say 'fuck' a lot? Like, too much? No one's ever complained about it, but I notice it alot in this entry.

Oh well, fuck it.

Awwww, vat head!

The poor little man woke up in the vatses did he? Did he forget that the Matrix is a place of bogeymen and villains galore? Did he now? The Kyle needs to remember that it isn't safe to be on the fake worlds, he should stay off of it, like the hobgoblin. It uses an old fashioned keyboard and screen to interact. Safer much.

...are an interesting character. And you make a good point. But perhaps you've never fully experienced the Matrix, connecting, as you are, through an old terminal. There's something about cyberspace that is very... liberating. My abilities in this world are limited by what my body is capable of. In the Matrix, however, the only thing holding you back is the processing power of your deck, and your willingness to take the risks involved in using that power.

Every now and then, though, it doesn't hurt for a decker to be given a wake-up call - a reminder that they're not immortal. You've got to keep yourself in check, or else you'll get burned. This incident really brought me back down out of the clouds and reminded me of my fragility. I won't soon forget it.

Yes it has! It learned to fight on the Matrix! Demons and monsters and bunnies trying to eat her head off! I know the Matrix stuff and she won't go there! Nuh-uh!

I read on your own journal sub-node that you were a combat drone. Is that why you learned to fight on the Matrix?

Re: Really?

Nein! Nein! That isn't it at all! Not at all! You are so wrong, wrong wrong wrong!

It learned that in the care of the ugly old man. Not the droney goodiness.

I see. You have had a very interesting past. I won't bother you any more by asking you to recall it all just to satisfy my curiosity.
