Only a novella, this is a love story between avatars, but never something so unreal felt so realistic. Trust me, more than once it happened also to me to be in Dante’s shoes, wondering if my “activity” in the cyber world has effected someone in their real life. Being inconsiderate while online is so easy, because virtual reality is not real, and you always think the other one understand the rules. Have you ever wondered how it will be perceived from another when you click on that “unfriend” bottom? I seldom unfriend people because I always asked myself, how will I react? When I was a newbie of the cyber world I was more affected by this, now I learned to not care, most of the time, but still, it hurts a little.

In any case this is not your ordinary love story, because Dante and Byron are lover on a virtual world called Synth, and from what I understood, they have never met in real life. But their love story is as real as if they were in the same city at the same time, and as it can be good, it can also hurt you. Like in a very ordinary relationship, there are weak points you know you don’t have to touch, and of course Dante is always trying for unveiling Byron’s secrets. In the blink of few pages, what apparently was a perfect relationship, shows its bugs, and Dante and Byron will have to work hard to make it works, exactly like in real life.

Nothing of Dante and Byron non-avatars came out, if not maybe a loneliness they are trying to fill with their lives in a virtual world.

Thanks Elisa! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. :)

We toyed with the idea of a CT2, picking up where the story left off, but so far haven't made up our minds yet. What do you think? <3

Well, I'd like for you to fill that loneliness I perceived in Dante, virtual life can be good, but real life is warmer.
