Kill Your Darlings (a Holonovel)

Abstract

This paper presents a shady holonovel, which is situated in the vile, short-term future. The main protagonists are two teenagers, Angela and Veronica, who are immersed in an adverse Mixed Reality online game. The girls are, at first, seduced by the comfy Sherlock Holmes-type of suspenseful narration that involves engaging mystery-solving challenges. Thereafter, the adolescent girls are fascinated by the virtual social status that the game network offers, as well as the persuasive end-reward, which will allegedly answer the ultimate existential question, “Is there life after death?”. Behind the scenes, the game is controlled by a group of anonymous, extreme transhumanists who have virtual appearances in the game as holographic avatars. To avoid lawsuits, the game is moderated by Artificial Intelligence—a curator with a virtual presence of Professor Moriarty—that aggregates the gameplay and command streams of the savage community of teen-hunters.
