Angel-A is Dead (Aug 5)
Remember Tomorrow
players: Martin, Gilbert, Ben

Everybody wants something from Angel-A.

Williams, the conflicted manager / talent scout for entertainment megacorp New Experience, wants to destroy her. Because he loves her.

Dr. Rankin, the research scientist, wants to prove she's capable of growth. Because she wants to prove her theories, out of pride.

And old man Johnson, withered exec, wants her secret. Because living forever sounds better than dying from a terminal illness.

And that's because Angel-A, world phenom pop-star and soulful chanteuse, is dead. The real Angela died in a car crash before becoming a singing sensation, but after being discovered by and falling in love with Williams, and after having her brain scanned as part of an experiment to create neural nets imitating real people (thanks Dr. Rankin).

So Angela died in the car crash, and New Experience launched the career of virtual pop star, Angel-A (always read the fine print in those contracts, kids). Who was just like Angela, except, y'know, not a real person. And she was a world sensation, and her fans seemed to adore her even more because she didn't really exist.

And Williams started drinking, because he hated this monstrosity that was a perfect copy of his dead love. And he was even more tortured because somewhere deep inside, when he looked at it, he saw Angela and loved her, imitation or not, so he could never be free of her.

And Dr. Ranken wanted to prove that her creation was more than just a glorified recording of a pop star's mannerisms, that the virtual Angel-A was really a person. A true AI.

And old man Johnson shuddered and shook his cane, because he saw a way out of his withered, dying husk, a way to beat death and attain immortality...
