Transcript: Plot I wanted my science fiction story to be original. I didn't want to some Sci-Fi on robots, space, or aliens. I wanted it to be on something I found interesting. So, I decided to do my story on the new "wonder drug" psilocybin. What is Addiction? The defines addiction as "The condition of being habitually or compulsively occupied with or or involved in something." I define addiction as the reliance of someone on something. Reliance to the point where you would do anything just to fill your addiction. The plot of my story, was a simple one. I wanted to follow a man's decent into madness, from addiction. So, I created a character named Vincent, and got addicted to pills. I have a very depressing ending. I wanted to symbolize what addiction does to you. It ends your life. If you get over your addiction, nothing will be the same. It's a sad truth, but a truth none the less.
