Secret message! Ooooohhhhh....
...just highlight after you're done or don't feel like reading that in the first place.
Well, I remember a conversation that once occurred in #rpgcomics about "what if there was an IRCTrix?!?!" I decided to go one step further, and actually put a useable plot along the theme of the "Matrix" movie (first one. Please and thank you.).
A popular IRC server just about everybody uses is irc.trix.net. But upon logging in, it affects one's computer and uses subtle messaging, instantaneous subconscious message flashes, and possibly even inaudible low-frequency noises over one's speakers to make them "n00bish", a.k.a., "D00D U R 2 GHEY!!!!!1 LOLOLOLZZ @ J000!!! 4 W1NN4R 1S TEH M3!!!
Of course, the people don't know that, and naturally settle into this habit, and get other people into it too...being that the server does that to them. The server's purpose is to eventually encompass all or as many as possible so it could go ahead with its diabolical plans...or...whatever.
When trix.net first started, though, there was somebody with a computer who was resistent to this, and was actually able to rewrite the code of the server as he deemed necessary. He freed people from its snare, and then departed, saying someday his computer would end up with another, who would finish what he started.
That person...was NeoMikey.
I'm sorry I put myself in the story like that, but this chance was too ripe to pass up!! And I want you folks to know as well that I was "NeoMikey" some years before the "Matrix" even had come out. Boo-yah.
Anyways, most of you know the story. NeoMikey is eventually freed, goes to some other server (irc.zion.com, possibly...?), learns the truth, and then is given tons and tons of scripts to do battle with the "agents" of the irc world.
Anyways, I don't know if I should continue this or not. I mean, it's nothing people haven't heard already, and re-writing the Matrix, just replacing things here and there...seems redundant, doesn't it?
Anyways, I was thinking about asking any of you folks out there what I should do, or if any of you would like to collaberate with me in possibly changing it into something else...maybe another storyline, merely using the "Matrix" as basework? I don't know....
Thank you for your time, and God bless! :)
