> Meditate to calm down.
You... guess you could try those mindfulness exercises that your friend suggests to you. You sit on the bed and breathe in and out...

in... and out...
in.........
and oHHHH NO, THE EXISTENTIAL CRISIS IS KICKING IN, FUCK, THE WORLD IS ENDING, EVERYONE'S GONNA DIE AND IT'S UP TO 4 TEENAGERS TO SAVE IT, HOLY SHIT EVERYTHING IS BAD FUCK FUCK FUCK.

The issue with these exercises are that they force you to be alone with your own thoughts, and that is never good. You usually try to distract yourself with something, anything that can keep you from thinking too much about reality. In fact, that gives you an idea.

You open up your computer and look through your EMULATORS. You tend to use these to play some of the more retro games you happen to enjoy. You open up the Dolphin emulator and start to play a Luigi's Mansion ROM. This is much better... rather than focus on a game centered around your imminent doom, you play a game about Luigi's... imminent doom. Okay, darker than you expected, but at least it isn't you.
You happen to know a lot about computers. You're no expert, but you're pretty good at this sort of thing.
You play for a while before you decide to actually do what your friend asked of you.

> Lena: Open up Sburblin.
Oh, right, the game files need to download and junk. Oh, well, maybe you should do something else anyway in the meantime.

What will you do?

[Something fun?]

RE: Sburblin: A Written Fanventure
> Be Productive.
You decide to use the BOOKMARK MODUS to collect some important items in your household. The bookmark modus allows the user to store a whooole lot of items in a book-type sylladex, but you have to move 4 bookmarks around for easy access to items. Sort of confusing.
What's bookmarked already?

BOOKMARKS
=> CAMERA......Pg. 23
=> FANFIC JOURNAL......Pg. 47
=> NINTENDO 3DS.......Pg. 04
=> EXORCIST'S GUIDE TO THE PARANORMAL.......Pg.96

That last bookmark, strangely enough, was a book too. You stored a book inside of a book. How meta.
Regardless, you only need 2 of these random supplies. The camera is always crucial, in case a surprise ghost/bigfoot/demogorgon sighting takes place. And the Exorcist's guide is always a helpful thing to have handy in any situation!

You equip the 3DS and Journal and rest them on your computer desk. You then clear out a few excess pages from the entire sylladex, in order to have space for a few more items.

You bookmark your LAPTOP and CELL PHONE. You also captchalogue your GRAM'S FOOTBALL HELMET, just in case.
Once you use the bookmarked items, they'll open up a new bookmarking spot, and an unbookmarked item will take its place for quick access. Anything that isn't bookmarked, you'll have to flip pages for, and that's always a pain in the ass.

=>
Uh-oh, another notification. Not just one, actually, someone's straight up spamming you! You go over to your desktop and open up Pesterchum once more.
=>
You click on the session link. The game begins to boot up, taking you directly to a peculiar menu screen, that has nothing but a white backdrop and this symbol:

None of the buttons seem to be doing anything, and there are no options that take you to something like "New Game" or anything like that.
Do you...

Fortunately, you friends have already been discussing the directions. You click on the yellow section of the symbol. It rotates in a pretty flamboyant animation, and zooms into the color.

Yup, the password is literally your last name. Or in other words, the family name. A bit anticlimatic, but hey, it's practical, considering that the game's been passed down in only your family. Your friends all have to click their own color, and enter their own last names. Kinda interesting that the game literally clears the pavement for all this cheesy 'destiny' junk.

The game takes you back to the menu, and now you can finally do some stuff.

You click 'JOIN SESSION' and paste the session link that Leon had made into the text space.

You're in, but you come up as a reserved spot, looks like you're gonna have to construct your profile, too...
DAMMIT. Why does this process need to be so tedious?
Regardless, you set up your account. Once, you hook up your Pesterchum account by linking it to your profile, somehow the rest is done for you.
Welcome, Lena:
PESTERCHUM:capriciousConspirator
CLASSPECT: N/A
STRIFE SPECIBUS: bookkind
LAND OF: Pumpkins and Spirits

Er... at least your name has shown up on the screen, now. You sigh, and open up that emulator again. You guess there isn't much to do but try to stay calm until the game starts...

A young man is chillin' in the comforts of his bedroom, without a care in the world... even though one of the most eventful moments of his life should be taking place soon. But man, he's got time, he's not stressed. What's this kid's deal, anyway? By which, you mean, what's his name?

Huh? That's not it. Try again.

> Leon Castro
There it is, yeah.

> Leon: Observe room.
Your name is LEON. The easiest way to describe the stuff you're into would be... "vintage", you guess. You're a big fan of tons of things that are considered 'outdated' by all the cats that can't manage to appreciate the classics. You're not just a 90's kid, you're an 80's kid, 70's kid, and then some.
Your room reflects that all too well. You've got posters of some classic cartoons from the 90s all around. You've got a record player on top of your dresser, and your record collection is somewhere in your closet, which has some of the greatest rock, pop, and jazz albums of the past few decades.
And yeah, well, you're a bit of a retro gamer too. You've got a ton of gaming systems, like the Sega Genesis, the N64, the GameCube, and the PS1. You don't care much for any game systems that came out past the early 2000s, so you mostly stick to what you've got. Good thing even Sburblin's been around for a while.
You've got a skateboard lying around here somewhere in the house, too, but you also enjoy the high-class practice of Soaping, an unappreciated phenomena that only the most righteous cats can handle. Anyone can skateboard, but being able to glide across railings with expert balance takes a ton of skill. Too bad it's a lost art... You've got a pair of Soap Shoes in your room somewhere.

So, what are you gonna do?
