Who am I, and how did I get here?
I remember standing before the two entrances of the Dragon's caves, a lifetime away. I looked at the map, which only showed one entrance. Then I took the left branch
Then I took the right branch
Then Velus led me to where Astra was chained to the wall
Then Belboz summoned Checkers to aid me
Then I died
Then I was stranded on a deserted island
Then I wandered the Calamari Desert and came across the tower of Vincent
Then I died again
Then I was transformed into a demifox
Then I sold my soul to the Devil
Then I died again
Then I married Astra
Then I ate a cheese sandwich
Then I turned into a woman
"Feeling confused, I'll bet," says a voice from beside me. I open my eyes and see a woman standing above me, wearing a pilot's helmet. She has a warm smile on her face. "Hi!" she says. "I'm Jenny. Don't worry, this is gonna make sense in a bit. See, you're turning into a Shifter."
"You're picking up memories from all the possible different versions of your life. That's why your timestream's so messed up and confusing right now, but it'll settle down in a bit. Soon you'll be able to jump between different universes at will. Like me! Oh, here's my card."
She hands me a business card which with a rocketship emblazoned on it. It says:
Jenny Everywhere: Freelance Adventurer, Cause and Solution of Trouble. Righting Wrongs a Specialty.
Below it there's a paragraph in small type that reads:
The character of Jenny Everywhere is available for use by anyone, with only one condition: This paragraph must be included in any publication involving Jenny Everywhere, that others might use this property as they wish. All rights reversed.
I don't know what any of this means, so I push it aside. "How... why is this happening?"
"You made a deal with some kind of cosmic power, I think, so you could save the cosmos from being eaten by the Shoggoths." I can remember now. I remember facing Astra, seeing her courage and her nobility and turning against the Shoggoths to save her, fighting alongside her as reality crumbled
I remember turning against her, and going on a rampage of slaughter. The memory makes me feel ill.
"Yeah," said Jenny. "Not all those memories are good. But you'll get used to it--I hope."
Where am I? I look around me and try to take it all in, pushing aside all my new and old memories.
