I Want a New Drug is the third story in the Manchester Chronicles, following Cayley Hawthorne and Natalie Townsend as Natalie experiments with Type-7 while Cayley deals with a rivalry with Rebecca Ang.
At the University of Knightsbridge in Manchester, Cayley Hawthorne is frustrated to discover that Rebecca Ang is eager to continue a rivalry with her. Meanwhile Cayley's roommate Natalie Townsend has started purchasing Type-7 from Felicia Silvermane, soon testing it out on Cayley, their friend Aarti Gavankar, her boyfriend Dominic Mansford and later her classmate Jennifer Roberts. As the weeks go by Natalie gets bolder and bolder with her experimentation while Aarti discovers her boyfriend Garth Mathers is having an affair with fellow student Carole Sault. Olivia Bennington, one of Rebecca's friends, also starts antagonizing Cayley, despite being assigned to a project with her, so Natalie starts using Type-7 to intervene on Cayley's behalf. Things escalate, Rebecca later sabotaging a major presentation, so Natalie gets the ultimate revenge by hoisting Rebecca's underwear up on a flagpole, Aarti learning a bit more about Type-7 at the same time. Rebecca vows revenge on Cayley, despite her not being involved with the prank. Weeks after first getting Type-7, a visit to Felicia sees Natalie helping her freeze Isabella Winthrop when she comes to confront the drug lord. Felicia, impressed, offers to make Natalie her main dealer in Manchester, and Natalie reluctantly agrees.
