Intro.. in case you missed it.
You are up late in the hands of your television, heavily entrenched in the thralls of boredom. Click, Click, nothing on, nothing good anyway. Why the hell did I drink that coffee so late you think to yourself. It sounded good at the time.
You’re just about to get up and grab some water when the TV emits a startling high pitch screech sending your body into a state of alarm. The picture on the television starts to glitch and you see an image of a party with dancing, vivid lights, and strange people. The fine hairs on the back of your neck stand up as a heavy blanket of static electricity washes over you. Then everything returns to normal.
You finally find sleep but your dreams are plagued by flashing lights, chaotic dancing, and the thumping of loud music. When you awaken, you find yourself lying on your kitchen floor, the morning sun beckoning you alive.
It all felt so real, was it? The night, the people, the taste of sweat and the brush of raging bodies against yours. Did it really happen?
You look down and, in your hand, you’re still clenching some type of card. When you flip it over, electricity shoots up your arm and you are immediately transferred back to a moment during the night.
You turn over the card in your hand and feel a surge of energy rush up your arm. You immediately have a vivid flashback from the previous night.
In the memory, you’re standing in a large old industrial building with a partially open ceiling where the rain is entering. It’s dark but equally alive with energy and light. A few feet from you, a man spins fire as a woman passes on tall stilts.
The ground shakes with the sound of music. You can feel the beat, heavy, but also for some reason, muffled, as if you are underwater. People are shouting and laughing all around you having a good time.
Maybe you were too, you think to yourself as your eyes catch sight of what appears to be a flyer littering the ground. You bend down to pick it up, and upon further inspection, realize it’s a playing card of sorts.
The card is printed with a peculiar face image and has some text underneath.
Before you can even begin to make out what it says, an odd fellow dressed like a wizard is suddenly yelling in your ear. He too sounds muffled, but you can still make him out.
“No way, I can’t believe you found one!” he shouts over the loud music. “Just be careful,” he continues. “I wouldn’t keep it in your wallet for too long!” [Character Introduction: Wizard: Open]
“My wallet”, you think to yourself. What the hell is he talking about? You just nod your head in agreement as he pushes a drink into your hands.
“Don’t worry, good fortune always finds those who share the experience.”
“The experience,” a voice opposite your shoulder interrupts. “Ha, at the expense of who’s fortune?”
You turn to see a girl dressed like a mushroom standing before you. [Character Introduction: Mushroom Girl: @basicsitch]
Her eyes lock with yours, and then leaning toward you, she abruptly starts to glitch. Suddenly she’s in your ear.
“The wizard wants the cards, he’s been trying to collect a full set for years,” she whispers. “Keep the card.”
“Excuse me, still here,” you hear the wizard behind you interject.
The girl dressed like a mushroom exuberantly pushes you back, “Now then, tell me, have you seen the Glitch King, or the Queen,” she continues. “It’s your imagination after all.”
Then playfully grabbing at the air she produces a small colorful mushroom before your eyes.
In this same moment, the music spontaneously erupts all around you as if you had just pulled your fingers from your ears. It’s an immediate assault on the senses and then all at once, you’re back on your kitchen floor.
