The year is 2987. Cybernetics are widespread globally, and especially in heavy usage in the United Southern States. Virtual reality is a past time for the rich and affluent and no program is more loved than Cowell Enterainment's Adam program. But something rotten is unfolding at the core of the United Southern States, and the ruling corporations can’t cover it up fast enough. Hackers abound and are synonymous with anarchists, facing the death penalty if captured. The police force, while claiming to be for the public good, is controlled entirely by the corporations.
Kris Allen and Katy O’Connell know this and still they fight to try and expose the corporations for what they are and what they have done. Meanwhile, Tommy “Crow” Ratliff and Monte “Vein” Pittman have given up on exposing the corporations and are only working to take them down. They have hacked into whatever companies they can and slipped their latest virus into the systems. Suddenly the Adam program, as much as it’s loved, is going the way of its brother, Neil, and starting to show some glitchy behaviour after its five year run.
When Kris and Katy break into a Fuller Corporation compound one night, they stumble across something that changes everything. Adam and Neil come to light, struggling for their own survival. Kris and Katy have found everything they dreamed of uncovering, only suddenly they’re on the run for the Free Republic of the North, not only for their own lives, but for the hope of the entire South.
Author's Notes: We're pretty sure we have completely forgotten the meaning of the words 'short' and 'brevity.' We might be certifiable insane for writing a nearly 80,000 word fic. It's pretty much a damned novel. Grab a blanket, some snacks, something to drink and get comfy, okay? =D
