You're a girl. In your room. Annoyed. It's not even noontime and you're up on a freaking Saturday. Ugh.

You've got black hair and red eyes. Like some kinda anime chick. Whatever.

So what's your name?

Well, the fridge is a no because the ant infestation tainted all the food. Maybe there's some salvageable bread in the breadbox, but I doubt it.

>Where do you usually get money? Or food?
I work at a secondhand book store, with a specialty in comics. It pays my rent and for ramen noodles. There ain't much adventuuuuuure in selling comics.

>Alright, so what sort of things do you normally do in your downtime? Are you in a mood for loafing around and watching TV or something more active?
I read comics. I watch cartoons meant for children. I enjoy video games. Outside is bright, garish, and most importantly, bright.

>Find a permanent marker and start a crusade of lewd graffiti in public areas. Anything from venus de milo to shoddy dick drawings, just goddam EVERYWHERE. Become a cultural phenomenon as a result of your art.
I'm not doing that, however I think I'll become more than just a cultural phenomenon... just an inkling.

>Got any more well-off friends that like you enough to feed you in exchange for your company?
Just one filthy rich friend from Georgia who buys me games like ALL the time. You'll "be introduced to her soon." I dunno what the hell THAT means.

They cut the damn power and haven't turned it on even though I paid them fucking yesterday. In lieu of that, I knock on the doors. Not even a "who's there."

While free comics and no old people yelling at me sound hecka sweet, I don't like being alone. I check my phone and open my chat client to see if anyone is even online. There is in fact two people. Who do I text first?

Who the hell?.… Hi. I... guess I introduce myself so we ain't total strangers.

I'm Yolanda, but y'all are more than welcome to call me Lonnie. I have an inheritance from my deceased parents so I'm pretty well off. I pretty much do commissions for people on the internet, a part time job at the local diner and that's about it.

Now, spooky voice that kinda sounds like my friend Ruby, what do you want me to do outside?

From now on, I'll be using the names of the characters as a way to identify who you're speaking to.

>See if the deadzone continues on here of course. Ruby was pretty freaked out about it after all.
Well, okay. I got some clothes on, and head on outside. Usually the other rich folk are outside braggin' bout their riches, but I guess not today. I live not to far from the diner I work at, so I can head there, see what's up with Mama, the owner. I also can call my chauffeur to drive me downtown, which is in the opposite direction of the diner.

>Oh, you can directly hear us. Ruby didn't seem to be surprised so I thought it was a subconscious thing. Hi.
Hey there. First, I am a little more than spooked by all y'all just talking to me. Second, the fact that Ruby doesn't find y'all creepy don't surprise me. She's told me before that she hears voices all the time. And has weird dreams in black and white about some guy named.... Roy or somethin'.

Nope. I woke up, checked my phone and it was at 100% charge. I watched some TV, on the anime channel, and after a while, I decided to get dressed and that's when Ruby texted and y'all started talkin' to me.

CHECK THE DINER WINDOW.

That's an envelope, hon. I go up and open it. It's written in yellow, addressed to me.

Somehow, I doubt that'll work...

Anyway, here's what the note reads...

"Good afternoon, Miss Yolanda . My name is Sir Roy G. Biv. As with your schizophrenic friend, a miss Ruby Vermillion, the world around you is void of life. This is, of course, a catastrophe of massive proportions. My advice to you is to contact some of your other friends. I fear that the time has come for the Seven Heroes of The Grand Iris to unite. You must do so posthaste.
Sincerely, Sir Biv."

I'll go in after this sick feelin' in my stomach goes away. I have a headache from suddenly havin' an external voice speak to me, and frankly, I'm about to piss myself from fear.

>Cool, you're gonna save the world! Better tell Ruby.
I take out my phone and start texting her. After this, y'all are goin' back to her. I... I'll need a moment to digest all this.
