L is for Lily: Meet Lily Reynolds from Scrying the Plane

LilyCrazyCrafter: Hey. Anyone out there?

AZVizTor: ??

LilyCrazyCrafter: Don't be a shy sheep. I'm stuck in my room right now. No one to chat with. My parents are so ticked off at me, and don't even get me started on my sister. Ruiner of homework, destroyer of my best Minecraft house. Never mind. Pretty soon I'm out of here. Got a party to crash, if you can dig it.

AZVizTor: Party?

LilyCrazyCrafter: Sorry, I can't invite you. You could be on the other side of the planet, and I'm not an idiot. It's not like I'm going to tell some stranger where I live. But yeah, this party is going to be intense. Dude running it has VRP access. You been on the VRP?

AZVizTor: No.

LilyCrazyCrafter: Me neither. It's so bogus they won't let anyone under 21 hook in. What's the big deal? 

AZVizTor: What is VRP?

LilyCrazyCrafter: Dude, are you from this planet? How can you not know about the Virtual Reality Plane? Interactive Internet? You just need some Sleep Ease and a converter box, not to mention someone to attach the leads to your temple chip. Do you even have a temple chip?

AZVizTor: No.

LilyCrazyCrafter: Well that explains a lot. Guess your parents are super religious, huh?

AZVizTor: ?

Minecraft wolf from Pierre Gorissen

LilyCrazyCrafter: Sorry, didn't mean to pry. But maybe you could get a chip implanted on your own someday. It can't be that bad if they put them in two-year-olds. I can't remember. But man, I can't wait to check out the VRP, especially Minecraft. I'm going to run from zombies, tame a wolf, or ride a trolley. It'll be mega! Hope I don't end up brain-dead or anything--haha.

AZVizTor: Brain-dead?

LilyCrazyCrafter: Well, gotta go. Wish me luck! I'm meeting a friend and...I'd better not say anything more. You could be a narc for all I know! Toodles.


  1. I truly enjoyed this story. It would be nice to see a continuation of it one day.

    1. That's a good idea. I can see the next part centering on the little sister maybe a few years in their future.

  2. Little did she know.

    This story had such a great voice. Well done, Tamara.

  3. The story had my brains in a a good way, of course.
