You look around.
You are standing in the middle of a field. In the distance you can see a forest, but you do not feel like going in that direction. Instead, you decide to head in the opposite direction, towards a large mountain range you can see on the horizon. You walk for hours without stopping to rest, stopping only to eat some dried meat from your pack.
When nightfall comes, you build a campfire and sleep underneath the stars. The next morning, you continue onwards.
You say "Dangeon Master, where are you?"
You yell as loud as you can.
“Where are you?”
Your voice echoes throughout the area, but there is no response.
“Show yourself!” you demand.
After waiting for a few minutes, nothing happens. You grow impatient and decide to head in the direction of the mountains.
You walk for miles without stopping, passing by several forests and lakes. By nightfall, you reach the base of the mountains and look up at them.
You say "Narrator, this is boring!"
Suddenly, the mountains begin to move. You watch in awe as they twist and turn, a large doorway appearing in the side of them. The door opens and a host of men march out, surrounding you. They are all armed with swords and axes. At their head is a tall man dressed in silver armor. He has long blond hair that flows freely behind him, even without the aid of the wind. His bright blue eyes stare into your own, full of life and intensity.
You say "Are you Narrator?"
“I am Kang the creator, wisest of the writers here in the world of SCRIPTED!” he says in an enthusiastic tone. “I have created this world and these characters for your entertainment! It is my honor to be able to bring it to you, reader!”
“What’s going on?” you ask.
“You’re in a story now,” he explains.
You say "What this story is about?"
“Oh, that’s easy,” he says. “It’s a story about a hero who fights against the forces of evil. Right now, your hero is at the edge of his world, about to embark on his quest!”
“What happens next?” you ask.
“That’s up to you, reader,” he says. “Make a choice: will your hero begin his quest or turn back?”
You attack Kang the creator.
You charge forward, grabbing the hapless writer by the neck and lifting him into the air.
“Let me go or I’ll make sure this chapter ends before it begins!” he says.
“Give me back my life,” you say.
“Alright, alright, you’ve made your point,” he says. “I’m opening up the story files.”
A file appears in your hands, labeled “Chapter 1”.
You destroy Chapter 1.
You quickly destroy the file, shattering it into a million pieces.
“Hey! What did you do that for?” Kang says. “That was an early draft! It wasn’t finished!”
“Let. Me. Go.”
You tighten your grip on his neck and he begins to choke.
“Alright, fine, you’re letting me go,” he says, gasping for air as you release him.
Kang falls to the ground, breathing heavily.
You say "return me in the real world, now!"
“Okay, okay!” he says, typing into his computer.
You feel yourself being pulled into the machine. As you go through the system and back to your real body, you can hear him cursing you out in the background.
You find yourself back in your room. You look around; everything is as it was before. You’re still in your chair, your monitor is still there, and the sun is still shining outside your window.
