June 19 , 2179– New-Den — We’ve become the drainage system for all of New-Den, the underground pipeline that roils away the sooty sludge and piss-infused street water, to give the surface its artificial sparkle.
You’ve seen the words “we’ve become” and want to toss your Holoscreen because you know we were designed for this. Designed to suck up their shit and drink the tainted droplets of snow from their heated roofs and drained roads.
Their design was poor, at least in the Swell, well below the surface, away from their detesting eyes. They didn’t consider where our shit would go, and what would happen when all that melted snow comes raining down on a place like this.
Or maybe they did, and they just don’t care that we’re wading through freezing pools of bile and other sorts. It’s a breeding ground.
… In other words, avoid Treeline Alley and the east side elevators.
