IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

I strongly advise you to read this post before proceeding to the actual story.

First off:

DISCLAIMER: No copyright infringement intended. This is for entertainment purposes only. I do not own any of these characters. Credits go to David Mitchell, Tom Tykwer and Andy&Lana Wachowski.

Second:

The story is written in a writing style similar to the actual book, so if you haven't read the book (but even if you have), please take a look at the list of changes in vocabulary that is used in this fic.

- everything that begins with ex- now only starts with x- (e.g. experience is xperience, exit xit, and so on.) No exceptions to this rule. If there is, it's my mistake and you can point it out to me.

- the use of "gh" has been dropped in certain words (so light is lite, night nite, etc. Also, though is only tho, through became thru…) It does not apply to all words, mostly for aesthetic reasons (the change from tight to tite bugged me too much so I ended up not changing it, and rite (=right) also irks me a little but I kept it for the time being) but also because not all words with "gh" underwent this change in the book.

- disney = film; vidi = video; kino = video player; sony = computer; drivetube = futuristic road; aero = that jet/plane/helicopter thing :D

Third:

CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS! Do NOT read this if you haven't seen the movie/read the book. I'd hate to spoil the experience for you. Also, if you haven't seen the movie, why are you reading this? GO. SEE. THE MOVIE. NOW. ;)

And finally:

Please do excuse my somewhat limited English. Unfortunately, it's not my native language. :)
