Katherine, the story's heroine, and her robotic Lab partner, Blip, have made an invention that links Albia to Earth, called the HoloDeck. After doing a trial on a Banana (Bald) norn named Jenna, they show a friend of theirs, Susan, what the HoloDeck can do. They transport Jenna into their world. The trio decides that Jenna must be hungry, and go to the kitchen to find some cheese. Katherine forgets to turn of the 'Deck, giving Jenna the oportunity to use the device. She imports a Purple mountian male named Jack. Katherine & her friends discover what she did this just as they KissPop. However, they can't put Jenna back into Albia, because the HoloDeck reacts with fetal fluids to make toxins strong enough to kill a pregnant female on import. With Blip's help, Katherine determines that Jenna is pregnant and that Jenna would lay her egg @ 1 am. Susan got permission to sleep over so she could help with the birth. The egg finaly is layed and hatches around 8 in the morning. It's a baby boy. He's almost completley purple mountian, except for his Banana legs. Blip discovers a mutation in the boy, that he got from his mother, alowing him to distinguish one norn from another. Katherine admits she altered Jenna, but diddn't think the genes would work, so she never told anyone. After teaching the baby, who is named "Karr" in honor of the Grenorn series, Jenna creates an accidental ruckus and Karr excapes to Katherine's room. There, he finds the HoloDeck and imports a Grendel into their world. The Grendel gets beat up by Jenna, and then runs to the kitchen, where it gets bloody drunk. Katherine's mother discovers this, and sends Katherine to an Assylum because of the whole ordeal. Susan, Blip, Jenna and Karr help Katherine excape from the asylum, but the authorities track them all the way to Katherine's house. After returning Karr and Jenna to Albia, Katherine decides that the only way to get away from the asylum for good is to hide in another country- Specificly, Albia.
And so it goes...
"Katherine!" Susan argued. "You can't do that! That's nuts. There's no sprites for you in the images directory. You'll make Creatures crash!"
"True." replied Blip. "But we fixed that. It'l turn her into a nearly pure norn."
"I should of known." Susan responded, realizing that she NEVER needed to ever underestimate Blip or Katherine. But, then what Blip said soaked in. "Wait a minute- It'l turn her into a NORN? Katherine stop, don't..."
"Look, the authorities are after me, I'll be thrown into a small, lightless padded cell if I don't get away. I'm sure you understand." said Katherine. Then, she scrunched herself up on the HoloDeck, and pressed the button. A flash of light filled the room, and Katherine dissapeared.
Susan turned to Katherine's computer. "Where is she?" she asked. "It takes a little while." replied Blip.
Meanwhile, Katherine was floating in sort of an Inbetween space. This was where the game determined what sprites to use. A beam of light, like a laser almost, flashed upon her face. Her brown hair turned a fluffy white, her eyes widened, and her mouth and nose began to form a muzzle. The light turned to her body. The front turned a peach color, and the back formed into a purpleish color, with a white tail. The light focused on the arms and legs, which turned purple too. Then, the light grew bigger, until it surrounded her in white. The white then melted away, only to reveal... The garden of Albia.
Katherine looked around. "Wow! It WORKED! I'm ALIVE!" She exclaimed, and did a little dance. Her words came out of the litte speech bubble norns use when they want to talk.
Back on earth, Susan and Blip were watching from Katherine's laptop. "Wait- she's not talking in weird fragments! What happened here?" Asked Susan.
"Hey-" Blip replied. "I said NEARLY pure norn, didn't I?" Just then the doorbell rang. Susan got up to get it. It was the authorities.
"Hi there," said a man with a southern accent. "We're looking for Katherine Riggs, have you seen her?"
"Never heard of her." Susan spat out, and tried to close the door. The man stuck his foot inside.
"Then you won't mind if we take a look around." The man said. He and another man came in and started serching the house.
They took what seemed like forever, but turned up clueless. Finaly, they left.
Susan ran back to Katherine's room. There she found Jenna and Karr, along with Blip. "Katherine," Susan typed in. "WHY are Jenna and Karr here?"
"There's a nice norn couple out on the Islands that want to have a child, but there were too many norns in Albia." Katherine answered. "So I got rid of Jenna and Karr. Becides, it was THEIR idea." Just then, a big Ron norn came up to Katherine.
"Push norn". he said. Since he was a bit angry, he gave her a hearty thwap.
"Ouch!" Katherine cried out. She thwapped him back.
"OW!" the norn screamed. Then he thwapped her again.
"That's it." Katherine replied. "I am NOT going to take this anymore." She took the ponytail holder off of her tail. Raising it slightly, she shot it at him.
The ron norn screamed and ran away.
"Showed him." Giggled Katherine, retrieving the ponytail holder and putting it back on her tail.
"I think you need to come back." suggested Susan.
"HA!" Katherine mocked. "Let's have some more fun. Export me!"
"What?" Susan was shocked.
"Yeah!" shouted Blip. "We want to know what it's like, OK Katherine?"
"Deal." Katherine replied. Susan said nothing, but you could tell this was worrying her sick. She exported Katherine.
"Hey!" Blip said. "Maybe we can e-mail CyberLife and tell them. Or we could send Katherine..."
"We can e-mail Cyberlife," answered Susan, "But we are NOT sending Katherine." Susan quit Creatures, and started up America On-Line. Then, with Blip's help, she typed the following message.
My name is Susan, and I am here with my friend's robotic invention, Blip. My friend, Katherine, has created an invention called the HoloDeck. The HoloDeck links earth to Albia. She now imports norns from Albia onto earth. We have only imported three, the first norn ever to be on earth was Jenna, who kisspoped with Jack, the second norn on earth, and gave birth to Karr, the first norn born on earth. Katherine would mail you herself, but she's now testing the HoloDeck, and has beamed herself into Albia.
Just thought you might like to know,
"I have to go pee." Susan said, after typing the letter.
"I'll wait outside the door." Blip replied. They left the room, leaving Karr & Jenna alone. Jenna stepped up to the computer.
"Push computer" she said. She clicked on attached file.
"Push computer" she repeated. The attach file dialog box had been up. She found something that said "Katherine.exp" and clicked on it.
"Push computer" she repeated. The dialog box had gone away. Now she clicked 'send message'. Just then, Susan and Blip entered the room.
"Jenna," asked Susan, noticing the computer had been played with. "what"
"Jenna push computer" Jenna replied.
"Hey!" Shouted Blip, looking at the screen. It read: 'Katherine.exp -98% uploaded'. "Do you realize what Jenna did?"
"No!" Susan responded. "She- She sent Katherine to CYBERLIFE!"
"File's done." said the computer.
