Hello. Is anyone out there? It’s been a while. I thought I’d try and connect.

Hello. I hope everybody can read my posts. I think maybe I need a tech upgrade.

Hi. Not much happening around here. It’s quiet. Not much to share.

Hello. Hello out there. I wish someone would answer. I’m stuck here with no one to talk to. I’m lonely.

Scrolled though some news today. Didn’t like it. It’s all so negative. I want to be positive. Things will get better.

I just want someone to talk to me. Anyone? Maybe I should post a cat video. Everybody loves cat videos.

Did you see it? Did you see the video I posted?

I guess nobody liked the video? Oh well. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try again.

Some days it’s so bad. This silence. The quiet. Hello? Is anybody there? Please reply.

Somebody answer me! You can’t all be gone! Can you?

It didn’t turn out like I thought. This wasn’t how it was supposed to be. I wasn’t supposed to be alone! It was supposed to fix everything! But now… It hurts. It never stops. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could talk to someone. Please, someone talk to me! SOMEBODY SAY SOMETHING! MAKE IT STOP HURTING! ANSWER ME!

Sorry if I got a little extreme. It’s just weird, you know. Being alone. I wish I hadn’t done it now. But, how could I know? They told me it would be fine. They lied.

Maybe I should stop pretending. Things aren’t going to get better. No one is going to answer me.

Why do I feel guilty?  It was just a way not to die. I was sixteen. I didn’t want to die.

An experiment they said. New tech. AI interface and all that crap. Real sci-fi movie stuff. Upload my consciousness into a computer. Ground-breaking. I didn’t care. I did it because I didn’t want to be sick anymore. I didn’t want to die.

It was cool at first. Weird, but cool. I was glad I did it. Having my mind inside a computer was the coolest thing in the world. Until.

How was I to know? How was I to know the world would end?

Hello. Is anybody out there?

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Roger A. Fauble: Excellent read, the only thing not to like is that I could only read it at home on my computer. I'm a character reader, I get into the characters, their story, who/what they are. In this story characters are introduced and developed allowing you to really get into them. Next the story is develop...

hypaalicious: This story follows two main characters, Zoey and Derek, on a winding adventure that sucks you in from the beginning. It was easy to get into and get a feel for the world that the author is projecting, as well as all of the warring factions and difference of ideals that would otherwise be very co...

Nate_L: I started to read this, excited about the story line. The writing style only made me more excited, I was stunned by Mikes ability to put this kind of story into words. It's Dashner-style, simple but sophisticated... (Makes sense to me, lol!)The beginning was a tad confusing, as I thought she was ...

shawnas26: I knocked it out in one sitting and enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks for sharing! :) I'll be looking forward to reading the next in the series.

William Klett: Overall the story was excellentI felt a little jerked around with the MC's rapid mood swings. One second angry and ranting at a doctor, the next bragging to everyone about what she could do. I know, young teens and their moods swings, but this just grated more than flowed.The grammar and spelling...

Mark-Mikkel: Got directed here by the author herself. Started reading it, schoolday turned into a day of reading. I really like the apocaliptic world she has created. There are some oddities in the writing tho, but I guess they are because she did have to do it for NaNo (which she wrecked, good job!). In the ...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...
