A note to Authors thinking about contributing: Remember I want this story to go along as relatively realistic, I know that might seem like alot to ask since the story premise is a bit ridiculous in and of itself but bear with me and be as creative and talented as you can be. And by all means, if the story is coming to an end and the mystery is solved or the bad guy is caught ect. feel completely free to end the story.
I know many authors don't like dead ends but I infact want them! I want this to be a real interactive with a plot and character growth and such, not some never ending interactive that the author manages to keep growing by throwing together far-fetched ideas. Thanks alot for reading guys and I truly hope you enjoy the story!
