The five of us went south a few hours after I finished my Skype call with Susan. I had finally managed to get some sleep, sprawled out on the couch no less, but even a few hours gave me nightmares that would have me wake up suddenly within minutes. The trouble was, I couldn't even remember what they were half the time. It was a cross somewhere between something dealing with dragons and fairies, and all I remembered in detail was my grandfather was there overlooking a cliff. He was trying to tell me something important, but I couldn't remember what it was. It was weird and I didn't like weird.

CHAPTER SIX
Fiction
Ascent to the Dark Side (a short story)
Nov 25th 2015
[Editor's note: The following is a story project started in the summer of 2003. Co-authored primarily by myself and a college friend as a way to keep ourselves writing over summer break, it sat unfinished for twelve years before the story came up in conversation with an anonymous third friend this past summer, who then read what we'd done and said "Ah! I know EXACTLY what happens next!" and then proceeded to finish it out.
What I present here is the story, in full. It's been edited slightly from the original and had the ending added, but the original dialogue and flow is largely intact. If nothing else, it shows the friend-fic hobby goes back a lot farther than RCM - the Kat and Tim mentioned are real people, she really was obsessed with Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan, and the argument at the beginning of the story was real (although the real life argument ended more or less with "Well, you can't be an Ewok because it's not a listed character class" being retorted with "That sounds to me like as a GM you just aren't up to adapting to the story").
I hope you get as much entertainment reading it as we did writing it.
