Forged Reality

Awaking to find herself in a capsule on an alien and dying planet, Samantha discovers that her abductors have died, and she is utterly alone. As she explores, she realizes that the aliens utilized those they abducted as entertainment, watching their dreams and nightmares on giant alien screens.

Knowing the planet was dying, Mahlax, a sympathetic alien, left Samantha a means to continue her life. She must program that life and then reenter the coffin-shaped tube. While she awaits the finalizing of her self-scripted program, she fills her time watching the bizarre stories she found stored in the computer banks. What peculiar stories will she find hidden within the computer? What kind of life would you write for yourself, given the chance?
