(A.N. This is hopefully the only Author's note I'll use. I uploaded this on another site, called Ficwad. So when she makes an appearance in a few chapters, don't feel awkward! It's in the Metastuck AU.)

Test. Test. Is this thing on?

Okay. Hi there! I'll try to be as brief and as nice about this as humanly possible.

If you are reading this, you or perhaps one of your ill-informed friends have installed the game 'SBURB' onto any sort of computer device or tablet, thus bringing about the end of the world.

But don't beat yourself up about it! You were probably meant to do it, what, with fate and all! So if you did inadvertently cause a giant meteor shower and kill all your neighbours, don't fret! It happens to everyone! Do you know how many worlds have been ended by this game?

A lot. So don't worry!

I ended my world myself a few years ago. Well, my cousin did. She sort of blames me, but I'm okay with that. The most important thing is to not panic. And smile! Smiling is important!

Let's start at the end of the world. Where I gave my cousin a birthday present and became the Reason We Can't Have Nice Things.
