Since I didn't see any other threads about this here I figured I'd create my own praise thread for it. I saw the cut text a few years back and lamented its omission from the full game, and I'd be lying if I said that I downloaded UB for any other reason, really. I was sceptical about the presence of a fan-written epilogue, though - "Hopefully it's just a carefully-written neutral passage of twenty words that was added", thought I.
So a while ago I finally wrapped up Ingress' quest, got the bag of teeth and tried equipping them. I read the original text - as macabre and well-written as when I first read it - with great joy, and then with a feeling of dread clicked the first of the novel lines. I started reading, clicked the next part, kept reading... on and on it went, far beyond where I'd hoped it would stop. And... I liked it. I like it. It's well-written, emulates the rest of the script's writing style perfectly and is completely in character with both TNO and Morte. I'm reminded of And Another Thing... by Eoin Colfer - if not for the big letters on the cover proclaiming otherwise I would've thought Douglas Adams had risen from the grave. Except the original PST writers aren't dead. But still.

Anyhow, superb work. Just thought I'd throw it out there. I hope the original author of the scene has seen this awesome epilogue. I, for one, consider it canon, as it were, and that's after I swore never to treat fan fiction seriously.

Sorry for the hugely belated response, but, really really glad you liked it :) I spent a while on it, and was really hoping it would in fact come across as in character and fitting with the rest of the game. So, thanks for making my day :)

It was brilliant, seriously.
