Why start with Room-2260? Good question. Basically because I've been putting off starting this story for far too long and - for some reason - Room-2260 came to mind when I decided - today, January 1st, 2014 - to just start this already and get the story rolling. There's much to say - from mundane to otherwise. To get started, I suppose mundane details are as good as anything.
The building itself is old - having been completed in 1933, and it has mysterious dead spaces (sealed off parts that had a function in decades past), bits of former equipment (steam heating pipes, etc.) and... many other details that we'll come to later. To get a feeling for the atmosphere, I'm including the photo above, which is (primarily) composed of images from a different building that was constructed in the same era.
And - well... that's a start. We'll come back to Room-2260 later! The building in this story is fiction, with bits of a kind of reality tossed into the mix.
