The Oneiriad: First Frequency is an improvised story to be told from the 18th - 26th October, as part of the Revolution that is The Frequency Festival.
The story follows Catherine O'Longley, codenamed CathI, a Hide-and-Seeker. Hide-and-Seekers are data couriers, with cybernetic implants turning the simple task of moving data from one corner of the city to the other into cyberpunk espionage.
CathI is used to her work landing her in trouble, especially with weird creatures behind many doors, but everything gets infinitely more complex when an Angel - an omnipotent entity nothing like the ones from the old tomes - hires her to deliver something. This is a creature that can create suns with half a thought, and create pocket universes with another half, and yet it is hiring a bodymodded human courier to perform this task. Something is afoot.
The only thing the author knows is the beginning and the end, the middle being a journey through Lincoln (or further, who knows) as CathI delivers this data package. Each chapter is inspired by the events of the festival, and Nathan. T. Dean (the author) will explore the festival for its full time in Lincoln to alter the passage of the story. Each exhibition, event, performance will alter the flow of First Frequency, like rocks being thrown into a river. The destination is always the same, but how it gets there is a different matter.
