(This story is written based on Natasha’s Virtual Reality Story that she created. I used her story’s essences and created this fan-fiction of mine.)
INT. CENTRAL LIBRARY- MORNING
A little girl was reading a story book about traveler. She was excited about it then turned to her mum.
“Mama, does traveler really exist?”
The mother smiled to the girl.
“I don’t know darling. I have never see them before.”
“Look at this mum”. The girl was attracted by one of the image in the book. “Travelers are gift!” The girl shouted loudly.” I want a traveler as Christmas gift mum!” She was too excited that her neck turned red.
“I wish I can give that for you honey, but I am not able to.” The mum said.
At a corner of the library. A boy heard this conversation. He’s face was pale. He lowered his hat so that nobody could see his blue feather around his ear.
“That is the nature of human”
The boy was shocked by the voice, his face was even paler.
“Calm down, boy.”
The boy raised up his courage, then raises his head. He saw an old man in front of him.
“Don’t be scared…” The old man got closer to the boy then spoke besides the boy’s ear.
“Because…” The old man smiled. “I am also a traveler.”
INT. CAFE- MORNING
The boy seated on the chair. He couldn’t stop looking at the old man.
“He is a traveler! Same as me!” The boy told himself. He couldn’t control his excitement.
People seldom heard about travelers in this century. Those special race of people who have ability to ability to turn back time were being largely captured by human. They are treated like gifts, slaves and being killed, only a few of travelers stayed alive. In order to protect themselves, some of them escape from cities, some of them hide in the city.
“You seems to be happy to meet me” The old man said.
The boy smiled, but soon he looked nervous by kept observing the surrounding.
“No worried, this café is a club for traveler. It is safe here.” The man noticed his nervous, he gave the boy a cup of coffee.
“As a traveler, what do you think about yourself?” he asked.
“Mom said rewind (time-travel) is the ability that human never have. It is a gift that god gives us.” The boy said it proudly.
“I used to think it that way too.” The old man signed. He looked at a certain point in the air as if there are something there.
“But the truth is that, rewind is not a gift, it will never ever be a gift. It is a punishment.”
It is summer, the café is hot, but the boy felt as cold as it is winter. He could imagine his blood became red ice. He wanted to speak, but found himself hard to express. Before he made sound, the old man said something again.
“By the way, my name is Abel, nice to meet you.”
INT. CAFE- MORNING
“Those people kidnapped both of us. The man shot me. Eden was too scared to move. I had no choice but snapped my seal with her hands. Before I heard the next shot, I was gone.”
“Then?” The boy asked curiously. “When did you find her again?
“Never.” The old man said.
“What?” The boy was shock.
“I couldn’t find her from then on. I was alone for 60 years.”
“Is she dead?” The boy soon realized that he asked a silly question. The Traveler’s lifespan is bound to the lifespan of his host. If Abel is alive, Eden must be alive.
“I traveled to the past thousand times, before we were kidnapped and before the man shot me, trying to change the past.
The boy’s facial expression became strange when he heard his. He hesitated for a few second, then said: “Don’t you know that…”
“Yes, I know.” The old man looked tiring. “One of the theory for time travel says that…”
“Even when parties travel back in time, the future they left cannot be changed.” The boy helped him said that out.
“Rewind is not a gift, it is a punishment.” Now I believe that what you said. The boy signed.
For fashion, I am inspired by the fashion during Jin dynasty. Here is the background information of Jin dynasty.
“The Jin dynasty distinguished as the Sima Jin and Liang Jin, was a Chinesesdynasty, empire, and era traditionally dated from ad 265 to 420. It was founded by Sima Yan son of Sima Zhaowho was made Prince of Jinand posthumously declared the founder of the dynasty. It followed the Three Kingdomsperiod (220-280 AD), which ended with the conquest of Eastern Wuby the Jin.”
Here are some costume during that dynasty.
During Jin Dynasty, government officials have their official robe depending on the hierarchy from official rank 1 to grade 9 (descending). Officials above rank 5 wear purple robe. Officials in rank 6 or below grade 6 wears red and green robe. I am inspired from this.
In my world, the costume will be similar to the style of costume during Jin dynasty. For government officials, S wears green robes, SS wears red robes and SSS wears purple robes.
For authority, I am inspired by the animation Gangsta
In this animation, those people who called “twilight” has the superpower include 5 grade: S, A, B, C, D (descending). I am inspired from this.
In my world. People’s superpower is from SSS, SS, S, A, B, C (descending) . The society’s hierarchy is determined by people’s degree of power. C will enter lower class, B will enter middle class, A will enter upper class. Those people who have power above S will work in government. SSS will have the strongest authority.
Most people don’t have emotion connection to their family. But for those people who have emotion connection to their family, would like do training to increase their superpower. By increase their superpower, their will be able to enter higher hierarchy in society and then provide better quality of life for their family. However, once their power and social status change, government will reassign them into a new family. So here is the dilemma. In order to find out the secret about how exactly the government assign their citizens into different family, some people increase their superpower above S then work for government. But those people who work for government will lose their memory, of course, lose their family. This is the opportunity cost.
Hey everyone. Basically, I am inspired by the animation BLEACH, there is a place called Rukongai ( Wandering Soul City). It is where souls live when they arrive in Soul Society. Souls dwell until they are reincarnated into the human world.
The Human World and Soul Society are parallel to each other and are two sides of the same coin. Families separated by death are rarely reunited in the Soul Society unless they arrive in Soul Society together. People live nestled together like a family of strangers.
“Rukongai is full of families that are not related by blood.” Here is what interested me. How can people become families even without blood relation?
Therefore, I decide to create a world. In this world, all families are without blood relations, what bonds them together is their powers. The Government defines different types and levels of powers, then assign their citizens to group into different families. Citizens don’t have the right to choose their families. Moreover, once some of the citizen’s power growth, the government will evaluate his or her power, then reassign them to new family according to their power. Should we call it a “family”? Should we call it a “home’? That is the dilemma and irony of this world.
