TNR is a science fiction novel I was working on some time ago. It started out, as so much of my writing does, as an E2 node named downtime. Then it flowered due to some actual network infrastructure discussions some friends and i were having - we were building a Metaverse in our heads. One of us realized that we'd made the tiles vulnerable to coordinated hack attempts, and then another of us realized there was a hilarious fix for this - namely, the Flashrunners (read the book, they're in there). And so it goes.

This content was originally posted at E2 several years ago. It was taken down during an attempt to market some of it as a story or a novel, which did not see fruition - so it is being reposted here. If I try to sell it again, it'll likely have to be so rewritten that this prose here won't interfere, but if it does, yeah, I'll take it back down then.

This category contains the various pieces of the story in what is presently the 'proper' order (not the order they were written in, but the order they should be read in). There are chunks of the story still unwritten, and these are, naturally, still missing. I'm still working on it. There are some miles to go before it's done, but I might actually get there. These missing bits aren't just at the end; there are things missing in between these pieces as well, and there's more missing the farther along you get, so beware: it will get choppy.
