Trance: a Technobabylon fanfic (trailer)

CEL pressures Jela to join the Trance, while Kobi and Harper urge her on. How will she decide?

A Preview of the Tweets

(with the whole story happening on Twitter and in the LongShorts app)

Kobi Folayn
@glowhaks

Oh man it's online. It's so ancient. You seeing this @edelrho?

Harper Edelweiss
@edelrho

You know that restarting this Twitter thing is basically Megadyne's idea to ease people into Trance, right?

Jela Kolar
@jela2087

wait i'm not sold on trance yet. i agreed to join this thing because you asked and it doesn't require surgery. i can just use my traveler, right?

Later that day
Jela Kolar
@jela2087

er so is this anything like trance? if it is, i don't see the hype.

Kobi Folayn
@glowhaks

What? Nuke no! This is way worse than Trance.

Kobi Folayn
@glowhaks

But Trance connects people, right? And this is how people used to connect before Trance happened before the VR boom in the 20s.

Kobi Folayn
@glowhaks

So it’s a kind of baby step towards getting everyone into Trance.

The next day

@jela2087

the interview was a total bust.

Jela Kolar
@jela2087

how can they not have tables? they make physical signs. all they have are chairs for people to hook into trance.

Jela Kolar
@jela2087

the guy said he doesn't normally even do in-person interviews. it was really inconvenient for him. makes him uncomfortable.

Later that week
Kobi Folayn
@glowhaks

I got a liquid tip on a new Trance den if you wanna come celebrate tomorrow @edelrho. I heard that ladies drink free there.

Harper Edelweiss
@edelrho

@glowhaks Oh, uh, thanks but no. Not really into dens. And tomorrow I'm just going to relax. Got a link to that beach hub from the other day?

Jela Kolar
@jela2087

hey @glowhaks? you're going to a trance den tomorrow?

The next day
Jela Kolar
@jela2087

wow, it's literally called 'the den.'

Jela Kolar
@jela2087

@glowhaks is going inside. the guy who owns the place is outside acting like a bouncer. wonder if i can ask him about the place. i get the feeling this guy doesn't normally care for his clientele.
