There is a door here.

That's not unusual. What's unusual is that when she opens the door, the room it leads to doesn't belong in this building. She can tell because there's a hefty chunk missing from the wall a few feet over. Through that gap, she sees the blank concrete floor. Through the door, she sees something straight out of the old records.

"9S?" Maybe her partner will know what to make of it.

"Huh?" He trots over. "Wow. That sure is some spacial distortion."

Permalink

"But what is it?"

Permalink

"It looks like a bar. Humans used to go to place like this to consume recreational chemicals that were restricted elsewhere. They also served as a social gathering place."

Permalink

"Oh. Why is it here?"

Permalink

"Good question. I have no idea. Let's go find out!" He slips past her and walks inside.

Permalink

...She follows after. The door slips shut behind them as they approach the bar.

A napkin appears on the bar's surface. Welcome. Can I interest either of you in a drink? First one's free.

Permalink

"Is that... typical?"

Permalink

"Nope. A free drink was a welcoming gesture, though. Maybe I'll get some fish oil."

He holds up his hands. "Joke! That was a joke. We've been over those."

Permalink

"It wasn't funny."

Permalink

I do have safe dosing information if you decide you want fish oil but it wouldn't be my recommendation.

Permalink

"You do recommendations? Where are these coming from, by the way?"

Permalink

I'm the bar. I do recommendations if you don't have something you'd like to order in mind.

"We are on duty. We shouldn't spend time frivolously."

Permalink

While the door is closed, time in your world will typically be paused.

Permalink

"That's convenient. What is this place, some sort of pocket singularity? Does the door go other places?"

Permalink

It's an interdimensional bar. The door does go other places when people from other places use it. You will find it opens whence you arrived.

Permalink

"Other universes?"

Permalink

"That could be dangerous. We shouldn't linger."

Permalink

Violence is prohibited in the main bar area; it is generally safe to be here.

Permalink

"See? Nothing to worry about."

"Think of the possibilities! What if we meet someone who could help with the machines? It's worth staying, at least for a while. Command won't even notice us missing."
