POP / YOU

. . .

Tight leather

You are a priest. Don't be afraid! Super-tight leather is still okay. Desired, even. There's no need to behave. To believe in God, even. Though certainly you can, if you wish. Wear a robe. Bring the Light etc. Yawn… Or the night, leathered up, on your bike. Find your God, in machines, if you wish. Lick the chip.

Is there even a difference… you are thinking, standing in line for your pumpkin spice latte, thinking too:

"HAHAHA!!"

"Love it!"

What's that… in the back of my super-tight leathers. Dipping in. Fuck me! Extracting this fucker. A robe might've be kinda nice, actually! Wait…

[robe 1]

[robe 2]

I thought I chose a robe, right?

yes. no. just go with it, leathered-up priest dude. what's up? hacker_child here. there are others of your kind, outside. pay no attention to the freak at the front of the line. it is the entity abseenus, in a native form. it is dormant, currently, but still releasing some mindfuck juice. check the sleeve of your latte…

"The usual?"

"The… usual?"

Striding by, in a huff.

Did he just pat my butt??

"Pumpkin spice latte, on the house. Preferred introductory beverage of 99% of novices. Leather. Robe. I really couldn't give less of a damn. Your 'friend' there played it cool. Went for the cappuccino. Coconut no less! Getting a little ahead of yourself there, bud!"

"HAHAHA!!"

"But… I'm straight. Right?"

"Makes no difference to me! Nice ass btw. #3, is it? 5?"

That is what I chose, right… sure. A checkbox, or something. Thought that shit was "against the law"! or whatever.

"Makes no difference to the character selection screen. It's all GEMINUS these days. Implants etc. More tech out there than in here these days! I've added some extra spice btw. Enjoy… ;)"

The nodecode!

But wait… Isn't that meant to come later? Like, much later?

not for you, apparently. congrats! commiserations? is this the sleeve? the device? is there even a difference? think about it… shame on you for looking stuff up btw. just kidding… hard to resist, i know. but know this: the more you look up, the less you'll know. that said: slip the sleeve in your pocket (butt, preferably, sticking out a bit), hook up with abseenus and the other novices outside. enjoy the bike! don't worry, it's not "real". you're not "really" killing anyone
