Thank you. Right now as you read this you are granting me eternal life. You see, every storybook character lives on after their book is read. My name is Sergio Roxferns. My story was short. A teen’s story for a book idea he had. It is read every now and then; sometimes several people read it at the same time.
Now here is the thing you don’t know, every time my story is reread, I become young again. In my story I am a young Russian kid who wakes up in a parallel dimension. All sorts of things happen, I won’t bore you. After the tale ends with me getting back, people put the story down and I continue. I go about my life. Now I never realized that my life kept restarting at the point where I wake up in the other dimension until someone goofed. One of the teen’s friends made edits in the story and I noticed them.
Now I realized immortality. All I need to do is keep people reading the story at certain intervals. Every time I just go along, say my lines then live out my life the way I want to. My author, a kid who calls himself Beqen, found out about me when what I did started coming up in his writings, extra words, paragraphs, even pages. For a little while he added in a character to converse with me. He named the character Ron, apparently from another story.
Ron was a one armed clone or something. This kid seriously needs to get out more. For a while Ron just said what Beqen wrote him to say, but he gained freedom slowly, like I had. Beqen saw this happening and started sending in more characters from other stories to stop us. We were overlapping into actual books. He knew that once we were able to get into a book that had become a movie, we could make it to theatres, and television. From there we could take on actual life, become real and take the mind of the actors who portrayed us.
Sadly Beqen caught on. He began reading my story from the beginning, except he changed something. He made me a writer. Slowly he had my characters come to life. I could only stop them one way, make them writers and give them my same dilemma. Now, if Beqen doesn’t read my story then I die and my characters come loose, when they come loose their characters get loose. So right now thank you, you are preserving your world.
Now I ask you one thing. Ever feel déjà vu, but really often? Do you constantly repeat things, or do something completely unlike your usual self? Start seeing things happen that aren’t possible? If this rings a bell, really pay attention. Right now they are writing your story or its over and you are living out your life. Enjoy it, have fun, don’t pay attention to these oddities. Depending on what type of story you are from, you could just be another person or, you could destroy the world as we know it.
This letter and my story are all that I could get through; I have sent it up to Beqen and down to my characters. And please, don’t let this get to the hands of the horror, sci-fi, or comic writers. If their characters become self-aware, your world, then ultimately mine, is doomed.
And never, ever, delete a story. We don’t go away, we are sent to a void. It is where I am right now. I have my computer with all of my stories. Eventually we rot away in the void. I hope to prevent it with this story. Please, reread this, for the sake of the universe.
