This will be a series of possibly ten chapters or more, which will serve as the prologue to a fanfic that I may or may not write in the future. However, I want to make one thing clear, as this is a prologue, it will have absolutely nothing to do with royal road, and will instead take place in the time zone of 1998-2058 in other words, this story will be of the generation prior to the invention of virtual reality.
