This is designed to be utterly unlike Semi's thread, for variety: feel free to contribute just a few sentances. I had a cyberpunky Game-ish feel in mind (with the beginning in VR), but take it wherever you want to go. Just make it Fun. =)
(I stole the title from one of Greg Egan's books. If you can think of something better/less derivative, just edit this post.)

Xetig had light brown skin, bleached blond hair gelled into coolness, and asian eyes hidden by fully reflective sunglasses. Currently, he was emperor of the universe.
Ahead, in the blackness, 3 points resolved into featureless, colorless spheres. Peering closer, he could felt a giddy exhiliration as the Zoom-O-Matic 10,000TM showed him the view.
OzzieDude, C4tfish4, and _brYce plowed toward him, airboards misting trails across the twilight-blue surface. Twilight-blue trails – should have been invisible – but he grinned anyway; they were sharp and dreamlike, spiderweb fractals casting bright wide shadows behind, dividing darkness from darkness, air from air from air, and for a second he paused.
Then, not-quite-automatically, the arials kicked in and it began.
