A Small Apartment in Shanghai, Sometime in 2001

I open my eyes and stare the ceiling for a moment, then prop myself up on one arm. Song-lian's wonderful body lies snuggled up against mine, and I put the tips of my fingers at the base of her neck and stroke down over the bumps of her spine, the small depression at the base of her back, and the gentle curve of her rear. She murmurs some noise of pleasurable appreciation and shifts around slightly. Dawn's light is shining through the threads of the curtain and sneaking past its edges, trying to get a foothold in the room. I lift myself up and head to the window, pulling back the curtain enough to look out and see the pinks and oranges that smear across the sparse low clouds. The ten thousand smells of the city assault my breath, engine fumes and wet dogs and fresh whole chickens and unseen humans getting up and starting to sweat, and I'm reminded of just how good it feels to be alive in our world.

The Anchoring of Ralph Carlson

You are standing in a spacious atrium, with golden sunlight gently cascading down through the central opening. Cool shade wraps around the outside of the edge of the square, and lush vegetation borders the central pool.

You walk north.
You are in a gleaming marble hallway, running north from the atrium to the garden. There are two bronze doors on either side.
>go stu
You open the door to the study and enter.
You are in a cozy study, with a large oaken desk taking up the center of the room. Shelves filled with books line the walls, parting only for the door and the large window directly opposite it.
Ralcar is here.
>say Hey!
You say Hey!
Ralcar waves.
Ralcar says What's up?

The Anchoring of Yang Song-lian

A sweet memory to be preserved later...

The Anchoring of Otmar Friedrich

With apologies to the entire German-speaking population of the world:

Teller: Ich bin hier fur sehen Otmar.

Otmar wipes at the blood on his face, his own mingled with some drops from where Teller's knuckle split while punching him, smearing some of it across his lip.
Teller: Jetzt, listen hier. Dieses is how du willst komport in der futur...
