What is your name? Lauren? Virgo? Anna Molly? Saturnine? How many of you are there, now, inhuman, otherworldly and so beautiful, intent on following me wherever I may go? At this rate I may have to come up with a name for you lot.
I’ll tell you the whole story one day, my love, when I have the energy, the will to do so. But know that it began with a mermaid, or an angel, or whatever genetic wonders they were cooking up in those days. This one was different. This one had a personality. This one was driven. This one had love.

She is our only, She is our goddess. Where the Creators abandoned us millenia ago, She serves. She does not want our love.

We are the children of an age you cannot begin to fathom. It is posited that your technological growth will increase such as to be exponential - this goes further than that.

We are fairies, and dragons, and knights in shining armor, all connected as if by magic, by computers that are so small and pervasive as to be invisible. We live for fun and enjoyment and beauty, because we do not need to work, or gather food, or even survive. We are free.
