Tales from the ARVInn 1

by: Robert Nalley | Complete Story | Last updated May 30, 2024

A series of tales set in a world where an Age Regression Virus escapes a researcher and has notable effects on the population. Chapters will be separate experiences or descriptions. The life experiences of those who contract the ARV are as varied as life itself, ranging from a select few who were simply 'frozen' at their current age down to some who became toddler size, with all the issues and difficulties one might expect. **Please note that due to the complexity of some of the items, a link to a MediaFire file will be provided. Others will be posted as originally created or specifically adapted to this site.**

Among the means used to combat the spread of the AR Virus were 'colonies', isolated residential locations for those who might contract it. They had their moment.

The Government Gets Involved

As with anything affecting many people, governments must respond. For this event, those responses led to years of trouble and disturbance for many places. Eventually, sound judgement led to settlements that were helpful.

The new ID cards produced for AR-Adults were high-tech marvels, with suitable penalties for mis-use.

Patient Zero

While many AR-Adults went about their lives quietly and some hid themselves away, others were quite open about their lives. One such person, a member of the original cohort of victims, is K.G., who is known and respected in his home community.

The Origin of ARVInn

Many projects came about to assist the AR-Adult population. Residential centers were among the most common. One, located in southeast Ohio, quickly became an outstanding example.

ARVInn--The Residences

The first ARVInn building was a former school, renovated to fit its new inhabitants, most of whom would have fit right in for its first use.

ARVInn--Using the Buildings

All the buildings on the original property found new uses. As the population increased, new buildings added to the comfort and programs offerings for everyone.

ARVInn--Expanding the Property

With the success of the ARVInn project, the population grew and new land was added to allow for more residences and services.

ARVInn--The Director

Any organization needs someone at its helm. For the ARVInn, the initial director was a person with first-hand experience.

ARVInn--The Manager

As the ARVInn grew into a complex operation, the Director soon found himself needing to shift some of the burdens onto other shoulders (no matter what size they were!). Marvin Hailey soon found himself in a management position, showing that he might look like a kid, but wasn't!

ARVInn--Specialized Care Facility

There are downsides to the AR Virus. One is that lack of proper care during the regression phase brings about the 'childlike state', which essentially is a mental regression which does not necessarily match the physical size. Some are able to live with family or even independently, but many are reduced to a state needing full-time care. ARVInn, with its emphasis on 'the best possible life for AR-Adults,' and its research orientation, also includes a place for these 'permanent children.'

One of the peculiarities of the AR Virus was the 'freezing' of age for its victims. Most became younger, but a rare few were quite literally stopped in their tracks, 'frozen' at the age when they contracted the virus. Dr. Leland Grimes was one such AR-Adult. His personal career and ARVInn soon intersected.

ARVInn--Mattie Leone, Businessman

Many people and their abilities came together to make the ARVInn concept a success. Mateo Leone, a successful New York businessman, was one of the early contributors.

ARVInn--Guys on the Roof

As the ARVInn developed, residents filled many jobs on campus. Some were office work, while others were more crafts work. Even work on the buildings had its mix of AR-Adults and others, once again showing that being child-sized did not necessarily limit what they could accomplish.

ARVInn--The Electricians

Work crews at the ARVInn handle most of its upkeep, remodeling and repair needs. They are composed of a mixture of residents and local employees, working together. Specialized skills are often found among residents.

ARVInn--Youngest Known Victim

Extreme age regression was fortunately not all that common with the AR Virus. However, there were still quite a few preschoolers. Only a handful found themselves with an age measured in months. Jim is the youngest known of those.

ARVInn--Transportation Guy

For people who had lost some ease of movement, with distances now feeling much greater, getting around at the ARVinn could pose problems. The resident staff came up with some really fun and innovative ways to talk care of those problems.
