Makin' Some NoiseLet me paint this scene out for you all nice and simple, 'kay? A history lesson will do us all good every now and then. So, let's go back seven years to 2012, when the world really did stop turning. To make things short and sweet, some of the world's largest power houses couldn't keep their stuff together and started a war. Before you know it, BOOM! It all goes nuclear. I was a twelve-year-old in a little town in Kansas back then. I was one of the lucky ones, fortunate to have relatives out of the state. By the time the war's over, Los Angles, excuse me, Battery City is the only place left on the map where people can survive the radiation. At least that's what the books tell us.

Better Living Industries won the war. They started to market pills that would create artificial happiness. Although I wanted to be happy (especially since I suffered from the black and hopeless feeling, also known as depression), I did not want to be controlled, which was what the pills were actually for. The pills would also "cure" my Asperger's Syndrome, which I did not consider to be a disability (even though it came with many struggles). Not taking the pills often lead to me getting beaten by my parental units.
Of course, I guess I was kind of asking for it because sometimes my temper got out of control. I was not one to actually think about the consequences; my choices were led by my feelings. I cared about what people thought, but not enough to actually conform to society.
