Every bad thing Wendy has ever heard about parallel universes suddenly becomes true when she is yanked into a dark dystopic version of her own reality. Every face is a familiar but horrid opposite to those she left behind. For her to be returned to her own world will depend on her ability to touch the very souls of these beings that don't seem to have any. Written by sus3337
