||This all started when somebody posted the idea of a
"Chain Story". A small setup was provided, and then different
characters were scattered and individual writers could volunteer to
write what happens to one character. I choose run and wrote a long
story resolving the problem. Sadly, nobody else did. In
early 2000, Raven hosted a "Merfolk" contest and I rewrote the beginning
removing the links to the "Chain Story" and made this a stand alone
story which I submitted. Sadly it only won second. :(
to the story itself, Dr. Anita Lei has developed the physics and
mathematical language to create a gate to alternate realities.
Sadly, she is too young to be taken seriously and thus others push her
to the back and, not understanding her math, create a horrible accident
that sends Dr. Lei to a distant reality. There she has to first
survive, and then she has to find a way home.
