Three friends were just having a quiet night when a portal opened into their living room. They found themselves separated in a world that is both alien and familiar, where the sky is filled with floating skyscrapers and magic and technology coexist. Now they have to find each other with the help of supervillains, giant mercenaries wielding giant hammers, and a talking cat named Mort. Will they find each other and, if they do, will they have changed too much?

    Status: chapter 34: reunited

    Ohh, this story is a feast.

    Elevator pitch, to be read in a raspy film noir voice: Three dorky gay friends get shot through a wormhole, into a subterranean cyberpunk city. Seperated, they scramble for survival and try to find one another. But the hard rain and neon of the city changes you. Will they be the same people when they reunite?

    Properly cyber, properly punk, and shenanigans aplenty. Add in cute polycules, transhumanist solutions to dysphoria and a talking cat, and you've got the recipe for a great story.

    This is easily one of the most gripping and interesting stories I've ever read in my life. It's got a polyamorous love that transcends realities, a vibrantly cyberpunk setting, and a habit of showing scenes from the past and present poignantly mixed together. The plot is a puzzle that the readers aren't directly given all the pieces to. You've always got just enough of an idea of what's going on to make each twist and turn of the narrative more impactful than the last.

    Show this to your friends. Beam it out into space. You won't regret it. 11/10.

    I've beta-read this in first draft (as far as chapter 31, which is apparently fairly near the end).  It's a wonderfully clever story, doing interesting things with the character arcs, worldbuilding, and narrative structure.  There are lots of surprises on every level and a good balance between fluff, drama, and action.  Highly recommended (though you might want to try one of Elamimax's other, completed stories first if you haven't read them yet).

    Status: chapter 6: meat-flavoured beer

    A very weird, overly artificial world with a very cyberpunky feel to it, weird tech, weird magic, crime, love, hope, desperation, the tightest friendship, self-discovery, lots of dorky characters,... 

    If anyone asked me for a reason to avoid this story, I couldn't name a single thing. It's just so wonderful!

    An incredible and affecting story! Despite its non-linearity, I'd say it was pretty good at revealing things as the story progressed, instead of how the timeline progressed, so no chapter trod old ground. Plus the world, while not precisely described, was well told in a way that was both flexible and concrete, if that makes any sense. Like, I can imagine more stories told in this world. Also I loved following all the endearing characters. There's something really compelling to me about characters who go through a lot, radically change, but are still the same people more or less. My favourite moment is when Cass and the gang say "You can't defeat us! We're Not So Different You and I!" and then proceeds to cut a guy in half. /s

    Not So Different is the story I wish I'd been reading in my teens instead of the sci-fi and cyberpunk focussed entirely on men. This, this is amazing. Full of vast imagination and unexpected twists, it's trans, it's gay, it's wonderful, I could not put it down. I want it to be a published book I can send to everyone.

    This story was not at all what I expected at any point within it, but it was ALWAYS better than what I had expected.  It was kind of all over the place, and could be a little hard to follow if you didn't catch on to the fact that it's told out of linear order, but well worth the read!

    Look if youve read any of Elamimaxs other stories you are going to want to read this. If you haven't then this is a good place to start.

    All of her stuff is incredibly good but this story stands out to me as one of her best. The beautiful mix of comedy, romance, drama, mystery and action is perfect in my opinion. Each character feels different and learning about them and seeing them grow is incredibly rewarding

    excellent Sci-Fi story. Reminiscent of stuff I read as a kid in the 80s. Lots of creative world-building and stuff.
