In the far, far future,
human kind has lost their history due to something similar to
the Y2K bug, where all digital records are erased.
Although some people try
to keep the histories, by passing them down orally, while others
try to learn how to write again with pens and pencils, and
record their own memories, there are leftover hackers who are
trying to filter and get the leftover information from the
wireless internet that still floats along the invisible electric
waves in the air.
One of these hackers, who
one day comes across this inactive site from the 2000's, starts
restoring it for some signs of how life used to be long ago.
While restoring the datas from it, he falls in love with this
poster who lived at the time, and whose lyrics and words and
personalities and the way she acts online just stayed with him,
and even though he didn't have a picture of her, or any way to
know how she looked like, he fell in love with the ways she
He worked along with a
fellow hacker, who had some feelings for him that he ignored,
for the fear of being hurt again for guessing wrong at her
feelings. As she helped him along with his work, she became
frustrated and jealous of the poster, until at the end, she just
confronted him about his crazy infatuation, and told him that
what he had in mind for the poster was probably just a fantasy,
a barbie girl dressed up to be the perfect girl, and since the
poster wasn't alive anymore, he was just in love with a ghost,
in love with a dream.
"Please don't take my
feelings away from me," was his response. "This is the only
thing that keeps me from feeling lonely at night, and the only
dream I have to keep me going towards another tomorrow."
It's still unfinished
yet, since I'm unsure how to end it, but it should be a nice
little thing to draw.
