Erika Stone arrives at the University of California Los Angeles for her first year. Erika meets Bianca Whitman and Krystal George in the registry line, also encountering Vicky Sandrosi who antagonizes her. Erika meets her roommate Titania Versace and, learning she is has dreams of a sonic-based freezing device called a Siren, decides to help her design it. During the semester Erika meets and starts dating Gwen Welch, also befriending Ashlee Norman along with Bianca and Krystal. The Siren is eventually proven a success but Erika and Titania try to improve upon it. Erika befriends Marissa Hawkins but, while having some fun with Transmoxide, ends up embarrassing Titania. In addition to the incident Titania has become fueled by jealousy of Erika, which eventually leads to her snapping. Erika hypnotizes Titania to forgive her but it eventually wears off and the Siren is destroyed, Titania leaving with the only complete copy of the design. Upset, Erika ends up hypnotizing Vicky, Wanda Beck and Carla Gomez into having sex in a common area, which would see them expelled. In May she goes to Fifi's with Eric Stone and Ingrid Stone where she comes out to them, also revealing she broke up with Gwen who was in turn expelled for trying to hypnotize a professor. Apparently becoming a bit jaded by her experiences, Erika does however express appreciation for Monica Stein.
- The story exists to show a more innocent Erika Stone and how she became dark enough to commit the acts she did in Clockwork Thief, as well as how she could bounce back from them.
